about

Originally intended as a remake of old material, this album grew into something more refined, more hard-hitting, more progressive, and more emotional. "Portraits Of Bleaker Days" combines the old with the new, and tosses in a few new tricks into the mix.

Track Name: The Downfall
You may not believe this,
But mankind is sucking our souls dry,
It's leeching on what used to make us whole.
And yes, from youth, we're being enslaved to ignorance,
and corrected with the rod of so-called justice.

This wounds leave scars,
and these scars trace the outline
of a modern day holocaust.
Mankind is sucking our souls dry.

I have a dream that one day
this planet and its people are blown away.
That every great city and state
deflates like our hope in the autumn sun.
I have a dream that one day
all mankind falters and falls
before the might of one great cataclysm.
This is my revelation.

Mankind spreads its propaganda to the deviant masses.
The downfall has begun.
Our children: brainwashed, infected, dissected,
lead this horror show to its final climax.
Marching with banners alight,
chanting as they go into the aether.

Society, we're a rotten fruit.
Society, we're a rotten fruit.
Society, we're a rotten fruit.
we're festering,
we're full of maggots.

I stand alone on this wind-swept road.
all is silent and all is calm
and a gentle breeze rings in a new era
all is silent, all is calm
as I stand so proudly


I had (yes I had)
a dream (a dream.)
I made it reality.

I had a dream and today
this planet and its people are blown away,
Every great city and state
deflated like our hope in the autumn sun.
I had a dream and today
all mankind faltered and fell
before the might of one great cataclysm.
This is my revelation.
Track Name: My Hour Of Need
mortality is our weakness
break me of these bonds
show me strength beyond strength
lift me up and show me the path to heaven
or I will bring you down,
and show you the path to hell.

a pale blue light radiates across my face
it illuminates this overrated shell I call my home
My eyes, torn with corruption, weep so silently
and vodka chases away the sanity I once called my own

I know I've dug this chasm myself
that my pathetic phantasm now lies in
On my own, I am just a man.
Will you help me?
Can you hold me?

Bring me out of hiding.
Bring me up from this hole.
Bring me out of darkness.
Bring me into the light.
Bring me up and bask in the sunlight with me.

looking up, I see a thread descending
into this brittle heart I thought I had lost
It temps me just like a fevered addiction.
Strength, my only weakness, fails me as I fall

That which made this masque closes in
The one hope I still had quickly trickles away
Closing in overhead, framing the sunlight
like dew in the morn, and all seems to be lost

This pale blue light fades and the will to fight,
it drifts away
I know of nothing, absolutely nothing, that can save me now

Stay a while, stay with me,
as I draw my final breath
how could you abandon me in my hour of need?

stay a while, stay with me,
don't be shy and don't be scared
I know you've wanted this all of your life

Bring me out of hiding.
Bring me up from this hole.
Bring me out of darkness.
Bring me into the light.
Bring me up and bask in the sunlight with me.

I know I've dug this chasm myself
that my pathetic phantasm now lies in
On my own, I am just a man.
Will you help me?
Can you hold me?

Bring me out of hiding.
Bring me up from this hole.
Bring me out of darkness and into the light.
Bring me up and bask in the sunlight with me.
Track Name: Asylum
faint echoes of times gone by shift the balance
tipping what used to be so stable
I have lost that which I trusted in most.
all hope, it seems, has withered away like a flower in the midst of a winter storm

faint echoes of times gone by and the stirrings of
something greater than myself linger in my soul
I am no longer alone.
I feel something groaning, bloating my skin.
It's no longer safe to be me.
faint echoes of times gone by stir something deep within
and the moorings I had now shift and sag and slip away
they slip away

it all just slips away

A slow of the pulse,
a thickening of the blood,
I am becoming that which I fear
This heart's last beat radiates out into the night
as I fall through the floor into reality once more.

Am I still alive?
Am I still breathing?
Can you hear my heart beating?
Am I alive, or am I just existing for a little while?
Am I alive?

Hatred consumes me, third degree burns
blisters pop as I boil inside
my stomach churns as it all falls away
head is spinning, what is becoming of this man
I once thought I was

as the last shard shatters
I keep falling into this custom-made hell
deeper and deeper into this new reality

all of my being, my very essence
it's all being taken away
and I am no more

I and the core,
we become one

falling no more, I am gone
The corruption is complete.
That which I had locked away
rises up from the surface.
The corruption is complete.

Am I still alive?
Can you hear my heart still beating?

Am I alive, or am I just existing for a little while?

Locked away,
I cry out for revolution

banging at the walls of my cell
no one can hear my cries
The horror is here to stay

my attempts to take back control
fall on deaf ears
sinking into this custom-made hell
I know I am here to stay

One, two, three, four,
I am dying once more.
Track Name: On A Mid-Winter's Eve
As the snow drifts towards its climax
my heart waxes and wanes

your words, still so cold hang so dearly on my ears
This mid-winter wind picks up,
numbing my cheeks, my heart, my soul.
Bitterness and hatred ensue,
as I walk alone on this cold winter night.

the gentle crushing of last night's snow fall
rings into being the decay of hopes and dreams

your voice, I swear I hear it
whistling through the pine trees.
If you truly wanted me so badly,
why did you shake me down and break me
animosity ensues,
as I walk alone on this cold winter night.

There is a deep-set chill no coat can ever warm,
A deep-set glacier no sun could ever melt.
There is the toughest winter
In my heart that summer will never reach.
Track Name: Hotel Check-Out
We check into the hotel,
your eyes are bright, like a child's.
We spend that first night
staring up at the darkness.

Waking up and I see that you're not there,
I wait for you, I wander into the abyss.
Your shape emerges,
I find you hanging on the end of my words.

the blood dripped so slowly
from her neck onto the shower
and across the mosaic of the floor
the twilight sun paraded itself
across your shallow cheeks

We kiss, embrace for the final time,
your eyes, once like a child's,
have grown so old and faded.
I let you go, I let you hang on the end of my words.

I spend that night
wishing I had never let you go.
Wishing you were there staring into the void with me.
I shift and I shutter and your eyes come into view,
floating in the void.

Your eyes, your face, it haunts me,
haunts me as I go,
go towards the exit sign.
Hotel check-out, leaving it all behind.
Track Name: That Which Was Broken
The reckoning has come at last
the final strum on the strings of gaia
as one, we congregate around his throne
kneel down, we say, kneel down and pray,
as you've sown, so shall you reap
your day of judgment comes at last

You were a god among men, but as a man you shall die,
and fall as any other king corrupted by power and greed
justice is at hand

as a man, not as a king,
your words have betrayed you on this day of days
convicted, you stand humbled, humiliated
as a man you'll share our fate

the blood of the innocent cry out from the grave
they seek vengeance, only to be sated with your head
you sought to rewrite history, but history will rewrite you
you're just a side-note that became arrogant
now you'll burn for your actions in the hell created for us

may your ashes be a warning on the wind
to all those remaining in your footsteps
as the vermin you are, we are the heel
that snuffs out your oppressive regime
and your shattered bones, a testament to judgement and justice

then they seized the king and led him away
in the high courts, he fell before them
as they dragged him screaming to the courtyard
the king felt fear for the first time
and as one single tear fell from his iron eyes
they set him alight
Track Name: Void Intimacy
knowing what lies at the end of the pathway
somewhere outside of time, beyond the scope of one lifetime
I walk onward in the thickening overgrowth

the call of the night sings to me
beckoning me further into the grotto
I see her there in the sanguine sunrise
and with one finger she draws me in
void intimacy, we are one

deep inside her I find reprieve
and in the hills of her eyes I find relief
but in her dulcet tones there lies deceit
and in the valley of her soul lies depravity
and at the climax I know the infinite

and as the sun sweeps overhead into twilight
I say my goodbyes, and with memories I won't soon forget
I turn around and walk away

a new night blooms
a new scent carried on the wind
a new seduction calls to my core
and as a rift in the wildwood rends its way into my sight
a new pilgrimage begins into the void
Track Name: And Then The Fall
how dare you stand before us with accuastions of evil?
how dare you stand there with your mockeries and foul words?
depart from us, you cursed ones, into the flames

traveling further into the depths
my wings disintegrating and my marrow seeping out
into the badlands I go
where I know I'll wade through the shallows and shadows deep

In the call of the heavens
I'm laid low in the valley
smitten against the grain,
I know time is all but lost
with a feeble body and a broken soul
from their grasp I retreat into gahenna
even if it is the end of all I love
this fight will hear my warcry
with my calling steady and assured
I lock step into the canyon below

before me lies the plains of regret
a dale of dry bones
the remains of those held high with hope

they fell before their time, but fell they did
in defiance, I trample o'er their remains
and in this chasm of trembling I feel remorse
I among them survived, and I alone must
stand and fight to the end no matter the cost
this world will not fall while I still draw breath

standing at the gates of new found hell
demanding entrance beyond the blood-rusted cage
and in the high court, I stand, war-torn and scarred
before those who betrayed all of my kind
In their stained silk they stand
with swords in hand
judgement begins
Track Name: Portraits Of Bleaker Days
lost in thought and in the maze of my eternal mind
dishonored by the deprecation of civilities
and in the eyes of humanity the treasure still holds true
lost in thought and in the maze of our eternal minds
