A Warrior's Blessing

 

Latin

 

 Et benedicta tu, o fortes, ut sicut aura spiritus amoris, ut pedibus et gladius celer, memento amator, precor ut redeat ad eam

 

 

English translation)

And blessed be thou, O you brave one, so that just like the breeze, is the spirit of love, and so that your feet and sword will be swift. Remember the one you love, I pray that you will return to her. 

Dust to Dust

 

Awake, but dreaming, lost in a void 
so high, but falling, dying inside 
you wander through hourglass sands 
until they’re still forever 


Bittersweet, you’re with me now, but I know that you’ll soon be gone 

Hard to breathe, the pain right now was happiness then 

Mystery, what is the reason? What are we living for? 

You’re my victory, until we’re crushed from dust to dust 


So fragile, your tenderness 

I ache for something I’d never wished 

You haunt my thoughts, creating your shadows 

until the darkness covers 


Before I follow the light 

Before my life flashes before my eyes 


As sand falls, the pile it builds 
my soul now crushed, I no longer feel. 
Eyes grow heavy as shadows consume, 
breath now empty, I welcome this tomb. 

Before I follow the light 

Before my life flashes before my eyes 


Wind surrounds me, as grains release 
the ground now empty, my person deceased. 
Darkness it falls, to shadows of night, 
hourglass shattered, the final sight. 


Bittersweet, you’re with me now, but I know that you’ll soon be gone 

Hard to breathe, the pain right now was happiness then 

Mystery, what is the reason? What are we living for? 

You’re my victory, until we’re crushed from dust to dust

The Ferryman's Shore

 

With words like gentle breeze, your voice caresses me 

As the sun goes down, I fall into a dream 

I stand upon the shore 

and the boatman’s coming closer 


In the silence of eternity, If I’m carried across the darkened sea 

come face to face with my reckoning, will our hearts be true? 


I’ll wait for you, I’ll wait for you 

Death/Black 
I I will wait for you......At the ferrymans shore 


I’ll wait for you at the ferryman’s shore 

I’ll not cross over, I won’t succumb to Charon’s oar 

I won’t surrender at the ferryman’s shore 

until the day your hand’s in mine once more 

at the ferryman’s shore 


With hopes like falling stars, I feel it in my heart 

I never would forget the burden of regret 

I have to stand my ground 

when the boatman stares me down 

In the silence of eternity, If I’m carried across the darkened sea 

come face to face with my reckoning, will our hearts be true? 


I’ll wait for you, I’ll wait for you 
Death/Black 
I I will wait for you At the ferrymans shore 


I’ll wait for you at the ferryman’s shore 

I’ll not cross over, I won’t succumb to Charon’s oar 

I won’t surrender at the ferryman’s shore 

until the day your hand’s in mine once more 

at the ferryman’s shore 


(spoken) 
Child your final ride beckons, walk with me now to eternity 


If you’re bound for the fields of Elysium 

where heroes go to rest 

I’ll never rest until I go there as your heroine 

Elysium, Elysium 

(doom vocals) over end 

Love and life....sorrow and death....take my hand....your final ride

(whispered) 
I am the ferryman

Perseverance

 

Blades of truth passing through 

sometimes it’s hard to find the answers, search within you 

sometimes you think you’ll never make it, perseverance 

Hold onto the one who breathes for you 

everything you can imagine, do you remember 

everything you swore to live for, till your last breath? 


(Rich & Talia overlap) 
Is this worth fighting for.... 
You said you’d never surrender 
Tired my pride is beaten.... 
even when walls close in 
Perhaps my vow is now broken.... 
you said you’d always remember 
Pride destroyed should I return.... 
the one who waits for you 


Facing truth in the silence, deep within 
Perseverance 
eternity in a moment, time stands still 
Perseverance 
every time you close your eyes, see the reasons in disguise 
Perseverance 
find your strength before it dies, perseverance 
Perseverance 

(rich & Talia overlap) 
Body bloodied I feel nothing.... 
when daylight fades into darkness 
Pain non existent it's gone.... 
dream of another day 
Valor the will to survive.... 
searching the stars for an answer 
Destruction fills my bloodshot eyes... 
remember who you are 


Facing truth in the silence, deep within 
Perseverance 
eternity in a moment, time stands still 
Perseverance 
every time you close your eyes, see the reasons in disguise 
Perseverance 
find your strength before it dies, perseverance 
Perseverance 

(rich & talia alternate) 
Vision...Blinded...Gone...Battle rages on 
Listen 
Shadows...Engulf...Enshroud...Fatigue drags on 
let me call you home 
Temptation...Beckons...Me...I answer the call 
aaahhh.. 
I...Will...Overcome...I can conquer all 
when the winter’s gone 


Blades of truth passing through 

sometimes it’s hard to find the answers, search within you 

sometimes you think you’ll never make it, perseverance 

Hold onto the one who breathes for you 

everything you can imagine, do you remember 

everything you swore to live for, till your last breath?

Your Haunting Eyes

 

I feel you are near me, although you have been gone 

a chill runs down my spine as the leaves rustle around me 

and the leaves glitter gold 


You are still with me, although we don’t speak 

life’s hand dealt this fate again 

will we ever meet? 


Your eyes are haunting, the scars, they run deep 

your smile, it cuts me, my heart you keep 

The strings that bind me, won’t set me free 

your eyes are haunting, and write this tragedy 


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free 

to live without regret and release your memory 

your haunting eyes 

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong 

been living in the past now for far too long 

your haunting eyes 


The tragedy that bestows me, the fear of being alone 

the pain that enshrouds me, the realization 

you’re now gone 


These chains won’t release me, although I fight every day 

what happened to my ability, can’t live my life my way 

anymore 


Your eyes are haunting, the scars, they run deep 

your smile, it cuts me, my heart you keep 

The strings that bind me, won’t set me free 

your eyes are haunting, and write this tragedy 


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free 

to live without regret and release your memory 

your haunting eyes 

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong 

been living in the past now for far too long 

your haunting eyes 


I make my own rules now, I make my fate 

these chains that once bound me were my weakest trait 

now I’m in control, I hold the key 

I’m no longer trapped, I’ve set me free 


Your eyes are haunting, the scars, they run deep 

your smile, it cuts me, my heart you keep 

The strings that bind me, won’t set me free 

your eyes are haunting, and write this tragedy 


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free 

to live without regret and release your memory 

your haunting eyes 

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong 

been living in the past now for far too long 

your haunting eyes 


I fight to live again, my soul to be set free 

to live without regret and release your memory 

your haunting eyes 

my prison is my pride, seems so very strong 

been living in the past now for far too long 

your haunting eyes
