Cruentus
Fossilized

1. Ascending (instrumental)

  

2. The Catalyst

 Bleak days belted by fear and sadness,

with one foot on the gallows

Mistreats of a derailed lifetime, the guillotine awaits

Led by the black, enlightened by (the) dark,

I’m wrongfully accused

Broad axe. Power ending. A hangman in charge

 

Held up by dust. Pillars of polluted air

Dragged down by the weight existing from our past

 

Generations of burden

A lifetime of guilt

 

Head in the dirt and ears to the ground

hearing the cries of their fathers

Broken back, blood filled mouths,

and the torment continues

Death lures with its haunting promise of ease,

a final nail in the coffin

A life in ruins ended, a judgement welcomed

 

A glimpse of the past, the cries of misery

No hope, nor joy, setbacks and distress

Less of the hopes, staring from a far

Mourning the end, the end of it all

 

Nothing in sight, still searching for the meaning.

Decadence from without, decaying from within

Heavy weight restraints formed to crack their spines

Dust to fill their souls blackens their hearts

 

From dusk ’till dawn
Apathetic days

Mourning mornings

Weeping night

 

 3. Nihil Ultra

To an endless tunnel with ease I was seduced

Behind the burden of existence the void

Now I’m sinking to an unrepenting death

And from delusions in the tomb of the living

 

This is the transition

A werewolf transcended in time

 

And when the view is slowly fading

Unveiling with each step

The face of many transitions

And feeding of the emptiness within

 

The frailty bounded within the flesh

Unveiling with each step

Then to slowly realize

The feeding of the emptiness within

 

Affliction is mine

The race to denial

 

To the lesser evil and the wall of ash

We travel fast to insignificance

And with disdain at last we’ve come to an ending

How I yearn for her caress

A human body broken down to its core

Nowhere to be found is dignity

 

Fail the enemy and disembodied invite the misery

 

4. Mot Alltets Slut

Med tyngden lutad mot eggen, en kniv som väger tungt

Beskåda tårens vandring, den dalar mot dess mål
En vändning i all hast, blickar emot skyn
Mänskliga ben som krossas, hudbitar som flyr

 

Det kan aldrig sluta
Det finns alltid kvar
En oberäknelig kraft

Mot alla och envar

Med samlat mod
Mot slutets minut
Krälande avskum
Mot alltets slut

Skåda vapnet som glöder, vilande i min hand
Med målet inom avstånd, lukten som hägrar

 

Det kan aldrig sluta
Det finns alltid kvar
En oberäknelig kraft

Mot alla och envar

Med samlat mod
Mot slutets minut
Krälande avskum
Mot alltets slut


Pestens år - det brinner

Finns fortfarande - kvar


Med envist hat som krälar sig fram
Viskande makter som letar sig ut
Tar vi oss igenom krigets damm
Innan allt är förbi, allt är slut

Se det letar sig framåt, envist och med mod
Det stångar sig mot slutet, i en flod av blod
                                             
Nu är det förbi
Men finns ändå kvar
Kraften tog över

Alla och envar

Vi tappade ork
I livets sista minut
Tomma, döda blickar

När vi mötte alltets slut         


Svepande - rörelser
Samlade - uttryck
Med nyfunnet mod, ännu en gång
Visar det vägen, ännu en gång

 

5. The Lost Ones

I stand at a distance try to grasp reality

Although it’s been long coming, we cannot comprehend

Gradually being entombed in the smoke of a dying city,

in a sphere of anguish left to decay

 

The becoming of a nation in suicidal disorder,

dissolving comes from within

 

Detained in a lesser creation unimagined to find

A malediction sustained to face the false and deny

Allegations uphold and to there to justify,

and in the relapse not there to resist

 

The becoming of a nation in suicidal disorder,

dissolving comes from within

With no winds an accusion, they’re just turning away

To the edge of the ruins where we all cross the border

 

From right to left in ignorance spawn

it is moving in strength by numbers

Like a fire that never completely burned out

it was waiting in silence

Reframed but still would collapse a detest,

the conspiracy

A demonstration in horror

a race leading straight to the gallows

 

No compromise, not then, not now, not ever

A derailed perspective of injustice and blight retained

by a following of no human insight

We must never give in to their surreal lies,

never give in to their surreal lies

 

(And) truth be told you were always the victim

Truth be told I was never the victim

 

6. Prey

And so it began, on the borders out of sight from the watchers

The blood is rushing faster but He is on my side

With a kiss from the eternal bride arrogance we fulfil our mission

A yearning within us ready to be constantly strained

We pray for victory we pray for death

Without any banner but not without any sound

 

Eternal the fray we’re unable to realize

our perpetual defeat

In (a) total alliance a legacy that will repeat

and repeat and repeat

 

Over us and behind,

approaching blindly in furious haste

The night sky is so beauty it’s glowing

Unbroken lines ascend the stairs in ecstasy

 

Invisible still are the scattered remains marked by torches

The view is different from this side,

convinced we stand proud looking at the dispersed crowd

But still they’re coming in an endless stream

How the effort is tearing we can not really see

 

Forward. In the wilderness of our soul there is no repent

The pikes and spears have little effect,

and we’ve reached the point of no return

 

Here the stories unfold

The tales echoed in generations to come

This is chaos this is atrocity

Soon when shifting to dawn there is a new reality

A cold presence has filled the emptiness the fury has left

Strained are the sinews of war

 

Eternal the fray we’re unable to realize

our perpetual defeat

In (a) total alliance a legacy that will repeat

and repeat and repeat

 

7. Relentless Scourge

Descend their bodies like water from the sky
Embracing my mind as the torches fly by
The silhouette before my eyes rise
Never before have I seen it untied
The whitest of white dipped in colors of red

The most perfect smile across their heads

A cracking noise as they land on the stones
Before me now lies only their bones

 

With fear and delight I run to the fire
Started by men who cherish a pyre
The red starts to boil and so does their skin
Knowing not the hell they are in

 

Stare at the massacre is all I can do
Seeing the corpses who all stayed true
The future holds the imminent end
In ashes and filth they all shall blend


As time goes by the memories fade
The only traces are humanly made

The mist took all their shadows away
Determined and doomed, I watched them pray

 

No symbols nor signs could find my way back
My eyes lies low as the day goes black
Thrown down without breaking a sweat
But to able to forgive is not to forget

 

As time goes by the memories fade
The only traces are humanly made

The mist took all their shadows away
Determined and doomed, I watched them pray

 

They attacked without hesitation
Walking toward impending damnation
Suddenly, creatures lured me to turn
White knuckles, with strength I burned

 

8. Averted Reality

With the last remaining second let this be the moment

Neverwhere

All lifelines gone profound devotion consumes me

now that twilight is drifting away

What will be formed is yet unknown,

but still we’re leaving a serenity of dismay

 

In the elegant art of violence benighted in trust,

it’s yours to destroy

 

Weary and hollow unto a night without end it is often ridden

A journey in omission the find the reward if it was ever there

Swallowed by the promise I reject every defection

Unwilling to accept this predestination

Pulsing it lies wide open for you to take

To see me before I fall

 

(and) it is in your control, I’m so far beyond.

A manifestation undeniably revealed

No sign of warnings they’ve all disappeared,

falsely led by the ways of torment

Cain over pride, we’re following their footsteps

The countless paths that are evermore shifting

and where nothing is certain

 

And with this I realized the decision could never be mine

The feeling is everlasting, blind and eaten from inside

This will always be justified

  

9. Doldrums

Welcome to the darkest pits of my mind
Where no light shines through
Where darkness serves as luminary
And the blackest of black decorates the walls

 

My mind plays tricks on me
Voices are calling from inside
Telling me what to think and to do
They are dragging me down to those pits

 

Every now and then I wake up
Refreshened with tears in my eyes
I have managed to climb out (of) the pits
But the weight of myself drags me down

 

As my life torns apart I find myself
Once again in the pits inside
Those walls closing in on me
Drowning inside

 

The blackest of pits eats me up

Fighting in vein, I’ll end up there again and again
I’ll end up there again


Hanging on to the edge with all my strength
My mind fills up of frustration
I thought I’d be strong to deny
But the weight of myself drags me down

 

As my life torns apart I find myself
Once again in the pits inside
Those walls closing in on me
And the darkest parts reappears
As I see all things shattered
The burden of depression
Burns me up from inside
Drowning Inside

10. Primordial Reprisal

Dismantle the sun before it rises
Conceal the moon in the dark

 

Cover the ground during its awakening
Kill the daylight while earth’s breathing

Let the sky fall down
Ride the winds of plague

Sing the chorus of the fallen
Sing the hymns of the dead

Watch lives revert

Encase the remains

Inhale the air
Exhale the dust

 

Unleashed from above

Released and unchained

Grey clouded, dressed in black

The wings of disease are spreading

 

Poisonous souls

Testifies from none

No signs, no nothing

Unchained reality


Listening to the deep voices of the trees
Leading the invasion from the depths

Let the dark ascend to cover the light
Carved in intense shapes of black

 

Your eyes are open graves
Deepest of the deep

Pale skin darkens by blood tears
Red as the de-parted soil
