I​.​I Purgatory

from by Above, Below

lyrics

The devils dance with me as I descend
such beauty smothers me; Euphoric dissonance
Unmask the beauty in the abyss
where the ones with no eyes, sing elegies at my feet.

I dared to fix my eyes upon the light
I stared so deep my vision was consumed
and as I observed what it held in its depths
the dreams i had lost
began to bloom…

Its creation, omniscient,
such as the scattered leaves of time
its elegance fused in such a way,
that what i now describe
is but a glimmer of that light.

My thoughts, like black smoke, arose from my skull
and shattered the sky that once shone above.
A broken symphony calls to me from the flames
A haunting orchestra caressing the dreams i crave

When I got lost in depths
their minds got lost in the flood
I yearn for what they fear for.
Purgatory my love, take my soul and set it free
I yearn for what they fear for

It was only in the nocturne, that she came to me
A constricted figment of my discoveries.
A solemn guide that knew me better than I
who let me out of this pathetic lullaby.

Purgatory's calling out to me.

It was only in the nocturne that I came to her
an unbound spirit from the mind of sepulchre

When I got lost in depths
their minds got lost in the flood
I yearn for what they fear for.
Purgatory my love, take my soul and set it free
I yearn for what they fear for

When I got lost in the depths, their minds lost in the flood
Purgatory my love, take my soul and set it free.

Devil!
Show me the light…
Devil!
Can you show me the light?
Devil!
Let me indulge in the blight…
