Thy gruesome cries so thin
On thus you will succeed
The amorphous illusions
Thwart your willingness to believe

The beauty disturbed

The amulet, opener of forgotten doors
Leads back to that doomed tiara-night
See thyself wild in hysteria
Death's irony

The beauty disturbed

Listen to this tortuous threnody
Filled with the pain
Thou can see where betrayal shall bring thee
Death's obligatory

Where all elements melt to one
And odious memories perish together with you
Should have seen the omen, the mirror
Death's reality

Cry, your threnody will be heard
For thy suffocated minds
The tortuous sound as angels' voices
The phobia, in search for ancestral blood

An arable force from the past
Leads back to the atrocious roots
The deep inner soul, never to be exposed

The axiom you can't deny or better
Drags you down into a lost abyss
The hymn stops, fear will reign
Death's cruelty

    General CommentThis kind of reminds me of people being killed in the Middle East because of stupid fights about what's theirs. There's a lot of "thou's" not usually in the lyrics, which is kind of like in the bible or holy books. There is a lot of arable land there, like near the fertile crescent, where all monotheism's scriptures and Jerusalem comes from. It's also about death and the "beauty disturbed" when good people die. There's many religious references though. Hymn, "atrocious roots" (killing for religion), and the avoidance of death by religions by avoiding sins, but "death's obligatory" and it's reality. Fear is something of religion, maybe the religions want to find their ancestral place.
