Lykaia

Paragon

Step into this
Somber storm
Endless walk
Seeking home

Winds of yearning
Clouds of harm
Aching haze
Soon be gone

What if I let you go
I hear a silent voice
Time is a river echoing words meant to hurt

Blow the candles
Kiss the thorns
Dry the tears
Soon be gone

Fields of time
Sorrow shows
All your fears
Soon be gone

What if I let you go
I hear a silent voice
Time is a river echoing words meant to hurt

Stray

Since we were born and they tore us apart,
And I know those years were hard
But our dreams will come true, and I’ll always stand by you

For all the countless hours you have fought,
For all the times you’ve lost your cause
When tears are in your eyes, don’t hold it inside
Cos you don’t need to hide no more
I’ll be by your side
I’ll do what I must
I hope that you trust in me

I know you remember you were taken away
How they didn’t let you stay
And I still owe you till this day
It should have been me in your place

For all the times in hardship on your own
All the nights you met them all alone
For all the broken promises you’ve had
All the times without a helping hand

When tears are in your eyes
Don’t hold it inside
Cos you don’t need to hide no more
I’ll be by your side
I’ll do what I must
And I hope that you trust in me

Sister

Stones are sinking in the lake of desperation
Hope and strength wither away like leaves in winter
Tongue is numb from all the pills and bitter liquids
Memories do hurt and always will erase my comfort

Sister can you hear me
Sister can you see me
Feel my light, hear my sigh

We-are so fragile in the end
A pile of petals
Waiting to be scattered away by the wind of destiny

Sister can you hear me
Sister can you see me
Feel my light, hear my sigh

Hear my sigh

Promise me you’re giving it a try
Promise me you’re strong enough to fight
Sister you’re falling through the sky
Sister I need a reason why
Heal my life, hear my cries

Jinn

Forty days and forty nights
You were the drug that kept me alive
During weary times

Seem so pure when wearing white
Within such a frail and immaculate mind
With those innocent eyes

You were young and full of life/
You asked me to swear and in me you confided
Underneath the stars

I should care to you let you fly
A chance to retrieve what was left behind
To experience life

Staring at the sky
Staring at the sun
Waiting for a wonder
Within a forsaken land

The sparrow in my hand
Now buried in the sand
Leaving you depending
Leaving me with open veins

Can’t make you wait no more
Can’t make you wait no more
Where it’s hard to breathe
Everything’s blackening,

I am made of flesh and bone
Blood, sweat and tears are all you ever will find
Underneath the skin

You’re a feather I’m a stone
Falling from the depths into the grave
Where I’m destined to dwell

And we reach for mystery
In the age of reason
Every path we take
We’re wandering in blindness
In the end nothing is
Glorious or honourable
While we drown in doubt
We’re drifting like strangers

Opal

In your heart lies devotion for starting pyres
To drown your brother within the mire
You pledged allegiance to gold

In your art your words laid out in a vacuous manner
The mind is there but the soul is absent
With smoke and mirrors you reign

Time will show
Throwing your own
Into the fire
Vengeance comes

One day we’ll form a tidal wave
Come rushing all over and
Come tear down this wall of lies until nothing remains
Turn away, beware don’t be led astray
By vultures that turn our temple to a house of trade

Sleeper kin
A popinjay with a gaudy plumage
Proclaiming lies like a gutless coward
Until your senses are numb

And I know
Yes I know
That all this little things
Are coming back to haunt you
They’ll tear you down in the end
Colliding with your dreams
And burning all you stand for

Tidal wave
Come rushing all over and
Come tear down this wall of lies until nothing remains
Turn away, beware don’t be led astray
By vultures that turn our temple to a house of trade

Turn away, don’t be led astray
From false perceptions
No more lies, no more disguise
No false pretenders

Stand your ground
Don’t wander away
Don’t fall apart

Ask yourself, in trouble
Am I my brother’s keeper

Lucidity

In a purple robe
Throne of needles
Sailing to the sun
Reaching higher
Sleeping on a bed
Of broken bottles
Passing night and day
Wasting hours

Rings on the water caressing your hair
Touch of a mother so gently aware
Let the journey entice you to stay
Draped in water seduced to immerse

Lying on the grass
By the river
Captured by the moon
Barely breathing
Dreaming while awake
Moving slowly
Waiting for a change
Never coming

Can you see the danger
Within my eyes
Everyone’s a stranger
Wearing disguise

Rings on the water caressing your hair
Touch of a mother so gently aware
Let the journey allure you to stay
Let the water seduce you to immerse

Orison

Wash off your sins
Bound by the burden of the grief that’s found within
Drowned in a sea of sorrow bound to learn to swim
Wash off your sins

Since you were born
A flake of a broken soul who never would endure
Shaped by the ills of fate that always felt unsure
Since you were born

In your eyes, I
Could see a loathing for the truth
You are burning within

Dead you are
A yearning for eternal life
A longing for a sacrifice
Praying for the end of time
As the curtain falls

Under the cross
The revelations of a narcissistic mind
Harboured resentment for the joys of humankind
Under the cross

Wake up
And pull out the thorns from your heart
Wake up
or sleep with the damned

Dead you are
A yearning for eternal life
A longing for a sacrifice
Praying for the end of time
As the curtain falls

Words hard to forgive
When we fall from grace

Sectarian

Eradicate all life
The ones I touch the earth will swallow
I bless them with demise
This burning field my ghost will hallow
Run away and leave it all
Run away and leave it all

Leave the trail for a moment
Change the course for a while
And give in to the presence
Conceding a severed utopia

Let me rest in your cradle.
Suffocate by your hand
Be embraced by the rotten
Immoral…perverted…vile

Let the skies rain
On the weak and the fallen
Let them reach faith
And be saved by your glory
Tonight the wait will end signs left a trace
And you’ll return unharmed
Free of all the pain

Keep me close to the marrow
Part my skin from the bone
Any thoughts of rebellion
Are captured and hooked up to a chain

When my spirit is broken
And my will disconnects
A mirage of existence
Will carry this life into the next

Let the skies rain
On the weak and the fallen
Let them reach faith
And be saved by your glory
Tonight the wait will end signs left a trace
And you’ll return unharmed
Free of all the pain

Hollow, shadow guide me out of the shame
Faceless, tyrant let the fear be my fate
