Track Name: Sorgens Taage
En tåge har sænket sig over mit sind
Med sig den bringer en sorg
Alt omkring mig overvældes
Og fryser mig fast til jorden

Som jeg dækkes af rim
Og min krop bliver stiv
Ser jeg ej mere af verden
Tiden fortærer mit minde
Mens tomheden sætter ind

I tomhedens skygge er alting stille
Foruden de dødes ekko
Båret af væsner i tågens vold
Den favner din sjæl og gør den kold

De rejser på stier ej set eller hørt
Blot følt i de sidste stunder
Og bringer et varsel om død til vor dør
Mens porten lukkes og det hinsides oprinder

Imellem verdener vandrer de
Efter livet skuler de
I tomhed er de bundet
Tynget af længsel

Hvad de ser giver dem intet
Blot en mur af stemmer
Der skriger uden mening
Track Name: Revelation of Maggots
A sense of dread awakes my mind
Obfuscated light pierces my eyes
A dream of nothingness slowly dissipates reality

I know this place...
My thoughts have been here for the longest time
Dwelling in the echoes of dismay

As my final breath initiates decay
Lack of life enforces a slow revelation

A sea of worms, in crawling pace
All over me, consumes my face
But I still see, without my eyes
As maggots feast, and hatch to flies

Absence of flesh reveals my bones
Absence of thought reveals a void
I look at my remains till the end of all thoughts
Echoing away in the nothingness within
Track Name: Min Sjæl Raadner
At afvige fra livets sti
Og rejse ind i mørke
Tvunget i frygtens lænker
Der venter tomhedens tørke

En byrde at bære alene
Som langsomt knækker din vilje
Med tårene flyder dit aldrene håb
Og intet skal mere bestå

Faret vild i glemslen
Fortvivlet ser jeg på
Imens min sjæl må rådne
Og ånden min forgå

Forbandet være min sjæl
Fra evighedens fødsel
Forbandet være min sjæl
Til tidens sidste glimt

Afstødt af mit sind
Der er intet mere tilbage
Vejen til forfald
Er livets sidste plage
Track Name: Life Drained to the Black Abyss
I cannot wake
I cannot get out of this flesh

My eyes have been eternally fixed
At the spectrum of darkness
A blackened stream of despair
It seems I have always been here

Swirling and gnarled are the hands at my throat
Drawing me down

Strange forms are present
I know not what they want
But feel their cold gaze on my soul
As I fall into the darkness
Into the black abyss

Expelled from my being by a blasphemous whisper
The essence is yearning to remain with me
Its screams absorbed into utter affliction
Creating abhorrent formations of what I once was

This tragic figure of sorrow is pulled into unholy darkness
In a final attempt to remain in existence
It clings to my flesh, tearing it off
As my life is drained to the black abyss
