"The Darkest Hour" Lyrics



---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"A Dark Path"

In this home I built of broken glass
where I sit and stand and lay alone
I muse the clocks, and hours pass
and I surrender to the voices unknown

Every word I ever screamed in rage
Every sob I ever cried in sadness
Every bitter memory of every age
This is the path of madness...

I walk a path I cannot see
The only one still known to me
The empty road of black and shade
Where fear is born and dreams are made

I walk a path I cannot see
The only one still known to me
The empty road of black and shade
Where fear is born and dreams are made

This is the path of madness...
Here every step may be my last

This is the path of madness...
My soul belongs to the past

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Ashes to Ashes"

Darkness, ashes
Smoke and snow
The whistling wind
As shadows grow

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
You repeat those two lines
A hidden desire and fiery lust
Struggling beneath the twines

Cinders scatter
With the dawn
Fear and fire
Swiftly born

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
A body is lit up with flame
Smoke churned into the dusk
The burner is the one to blame

Sun and sorrow
Death and pain
Then like dawn
We rise again

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
You repeat those two lines
A hidden desire and fiery lust
Struggling beneath the twines

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
A body is lit up with flame
Smoke churned into the dusk
The burner is the one to blame

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"If You Go"

Don't go, don't go
Don't open a black void 
Greater than the sea
The abyss to swallow and waste my love

Streets dead and hollow
I'm left wondering where you are
There will be no climbing up
No light. No soft, human touch

Cancer of the soul
Devouring, if you go...

Left dead like the moon
Left cold like the snow
Both things so beautiful
Both so sad on the surface below

If you go...
There will be no "me" anymore
If you go...
There will be no "me" anymore

If you go...
If you go...
If you go...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I Remember"

The Feeling
Of a racing heart
The Touch
Of your skin
The Smell
Of perfume
The Sight
Of all that's pure

I Remember
Remember...
I Remember
Remember...

The Smile
On your face
The Moments
Which we shared

The Feeling
Of a racing heart
The Touch
Of your skin
The Smell
Of perfume
The Sight
Of all that's pure

I Remember
Remember...
I Remember
Remember...

The Feeling
Of a racing heart
The Touch
Of your skin
The Smell
Of perfume
The Sight
Of all that's pure

I Remember

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Light is Dead"

In the darkness
Where we dwell
The endless deep
We know so well
The demons here
So dire and fell
All shadows of the self

Longing sorrow
In the heart
Broken, stolen
Worlds apart
The dance is still
The word unsaid
In silent grief
The light is dead

The light is... Dead
The light is... Dead

In the darkness
Where we dwell
The endless deep
We know so well
Radiance? Lost
Joy? Forlorn
Beauty? Pleasure?
Both long gone

Longing sorrow
In the heart
Broken, stolen
Worlds apart
The dance is still
The word unsaid
In silent grief
The light is dead

The light is... Dead
The light is... Dead
The light is... Dead
The light is... Dead

"Nachtmahr (feat. Tanaros)"
lyrics by Jan Ricker (Tanaros)

Jedes Mal, wenn du die Augen schließt
Wirst du der Angst gewahr...
Jedes Mal, wenn du die Augen schließt
Jagt dich, der Nachtmahr...

Deine Augen aufgerissen
In der stillsten Stunde
Blutrot gefärbte Kissen
Erwacht ist deine Wunde

Dieses Bild eingebrannt
In jener finst'ren Nacht
Ein Schatten an der Wand
Der Mahr über dich wacht...

Jedes Mal, wenn du die Augen schließt
Wirst du der Angst gewahr...
Jedes Mal, wenn du die Augen schließt
Jagt dich, der Nachtmahr...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Relentless Torture"

Broken again, aren't we?
The wings torn apart
Should have realized it's all the same
The life didn't change, the hope always fades
Why?!

Relentless torture
Shredding the mind
Destroying all logic
The senses now blind
Perception distorted
The world in a spin
Unable to silence
The scream that's within

Who would choose to yield so much?
To always watch and never touch

Who would choose to yield so much?
To always watch and never touch

Broken again, aren't we?
Tears keep on falling
I am still the same, I haven't changed
I have always been the fool
It is too late...

Relentless torture
Shredding the mind
Destroying all logic
The senses now blind
Perception distorted
The world in a spin
Unable to silence
The scream that's within

Who would choose to yield so much?
To always watch and never touch

Who would choose to yield so much?
To always watch and never touch

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Wśród Cieni"

Na początku strata
Cierpienie i łzy
Nadziei utrata
Jesteś tylko ty

Szaleństwo w mej duszy
Nieokiełznane sny
Nie daje mi odpocząć
Samotności ryk

Zatracam się
Popadam w zapomnienie
Zatracam się
Popadam w zapomnienie

Brak mi sił, brak mi woli do życia
Nie mogę powstać, pozostał tylko pył
Pomału odchodzę, moja dusza zanika
Mrok ogarnia mnie, on zawsze był...

...Częścią mnie
On zawsze był częścią mnie
Mrok ogarnia mnie
On zawsze był częścią mnie

Zatracam się
Popadam w zapomnienie
Zatracam się
Popadam w zapomnienie

Na początku strata
Cierpienie i łzy
Nadziei utrata
Jesteś tylko ty

Szaleństwo w mej duszy
Nieokiełznane sny
Nie daje mi odpocząć
Samotności ryk

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Exordium to End"


There is no time
For my helpless thoughts
No time for you and me
Look around... everything rots

Because at the end
We are all alone
And it is all the same... again
In this place called "home"

And we just spin around in circles
Circles of madness and despair
Grieving and searching for the meaning
But missing ourselves

And we just spin around in circles
Circles of madness and despair
Grieving and searching for the meaning
But missing ourselves

There is no time
For my helpless thoughts
No time for you and me
Look around... everything rots

Because at the end
We are all alone
And it is all the same... again
In this place called "home"

And we just spin around in circles
Circles of madness and despair
Grieving and searching for the meaning
But missing ourselves

And we just spin around in circles
Circles of madness and despair
Grieving and searching for the meaning
But missing ourselves

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Fading"

I am afraid...
Of being erased
Of being forgotten
Of losing my place

I am afraid...
To disappear
Of fading away
Away from you, nowhere near

The demons inside me
They are ripping me apart
Slowly, I am fading
They are eating my heart
The demons inside me
They are taking me away
Slowly, I am fading
There is no place for me to stay

The demons inside me
They are ripping me apart
Slowly, I am fading
They are eating my heart
The demons inside me
They are taking me away
Slowly, I am fading
There is no place for me to stay

Never before
Have I felt this way
A destiny's pawn
With no reason to stay

Please let this be a dream
Speak to me, wake me up again
Tell me you are here
Let me feel again...

The demons inside me
They are ripping me apart
Slowly, I am fading
They are eating my heart
The demons inside me
They are taking me away
Slowly, I am fading
There is no place for me to stay

The demons inside me
They are ripping me apart
Slowly, I am fading
They are eating my heart
The demons inside me
They are taking me away
Slowly, I am fading
There is no place for me to stay

Please let this be a dream
Speak to me, wake me up again
Tell me you are here
Let me feel again...

"The Solace of Silence"


Falling of silence, words are no more
Motionless moments, dreaming of light
Whispering shards caress the floor
Time at a stand still, forever in night

The solace of silence - an end to it all
Gone was the need to fight, or defend
Emptiness embraced me as its thrall
I grew numb and deafened by the silence

We met here, once, alone in this place
It's too quiet here in the light and in the dark
Will I become another nameless face
Being alone within the nameless crowd?

The solace of silence - an end to it all
Gone was the need to fight, or defend
Emptiness embraced me as its thrall
I grew numb and deafened by the silence

Living in turmoil, no end in sight
Imagined moments where hope springs anew
Clinging to hope that one day it might
Motionless moments, dreaming of light

The solace of silence - an end to it all
Gone was the need to fight, or defend
Emptiness embraced me as Its thrall
I grew numb and deafened by the silence

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Through the Night"


Again I lay awake while gazing still
Again I curse the time, the clock and all
My eyes may close, though more against my will
My gaze would shift from up to the old wall

I curse the fears I had when I was young
I curse the time I wasted all these years
I curse the night with sickened, burning tongue
I curse myself for only shedding tears

I curse the fears I had when I was young
I curse the time I wasted all these years
I curse the night with sickened, burning tongue
I curse myself for only shedding tears

My thoughts would linger, dreams without their kiss
An empty heart speaks to an empty head
With littered memories like wasted bliss
Lament hangs heavy onto me like dread

I curse the fears I had when I was young
I curse the time I wasted all these years
I curse the night with sickened, burning tongue
I curse myself for only shedding tears

I curse the fears I had when I was young
I curse the time I wasted all these years
I curse the night with sickened, burning tongue
I curse myself for only shedding tears

I lay awake again, a simple man
While sleeping through my life without a plan
