The Gothic Embrace
Oh, angel of my winter
Grieveth for the pain of sadness
A gothic embrace restores my love
God took away
Ye romance of forgotten times
In eras without the sun
An ocean of tears I see
A nightfall of dreams caresses me
Thou wert, thou art, thou shalt forever be
Ye nightshade of thy sorrow
Stretching out in twilights beauty
In love with ye thousands of nights
But weeping in silence, in ebony
For melancholy, forever, forever!
Jesus Christ walks the Earth, a pitiful shade of God
A cruel conspiracy for the sake of slavery
And He drags us down to the plague of humanity
Set us free!
I've killed my holiness
Killed my emptiness!
I'm fallen from God
Fallen from guilt!
I've abandoned the light
The light that blinded so long!
Free from submission
But still under His spell
We're in pain, pain, pain!
Sorrow turns to anguish
And I scream with hate at the tyrant above!
Hosanna de Profundis
Salva me, Libera me!
Gothic moon, ablazeth the eventide so sonorous
Ye solemn of a lovelorn garden of crimson souls
All true beauty is sad, but lost within the clenched hands of God
Lost within the clenched hands of God
We're all like dying embers; we're fallen leaves
As long as Thy power is seated on Heaven's throne
The false righteousness in Thy glory's name
Forever shall I grieve!
I mourn that the night passes us by
Let there be an eternal night, eternal night!
