From now on there's an abscence of smile

Foul voices welcome me to loneliness
Graceful tunes on her lips have now ceased
This winter's here to surpass all the hopes
And dreams succumb to nightmares and freezing air

Now lonely is my road, path paved with bitter thoughts
Conception of beauty excluded from this heart
Within closed doors no-one speaks, behind barred windows no soul lives
As I walk the soil beneath my feet is crumbling...

She was my sun and now the light has faded away
Night condensing around me, leading astray
Shining image torn down, remembrance of her fades
Left but anguish and shame to haunt me in the shades

Should I be content with the memory of the life I had?
Or is the Hell knowing what we could have beome?
- Quite indifferent as the tides of time have now turned
And the past is buried in a drift of whirling snow

...White sheet covering all things left behind...

And from now on there's an abscence of hope...

She was my sun and now the light has faded away
Night condensing around me, leading astray
Shining image torn down, remembrance of her fades
Left but anguish and shame to haunt me in the shades

So be it, perdition is my home,
Since the day it all came down

    General CommentThis song (and the entire album, to me) seems to be about someone whose mother died, and this death pulls the father and son apart (Just from looking at the other lyrics, especially "Closing Words" and "Disengagement"

    I love this song, it is raw power at 3:19.

    General CommentRaw power indeed, Dead eternity said it... and the lyrics are very sad, sounds about a family torn apart by a death of a mother/ wife.

    Best part: She was my sun and now the light has faded away
    Night condensing around me, leading astray
    Shining image torn down, remembrance of her fades
    Left but anguish and shame to haunt me in the shades
