Stormclouds (1996)

I Carved Her Flesh

I passed through the gates of your eternity
to the place where light canít intrude
I walked the dusty road to nowhere
that nobody wandered before
through different eyes I was watching your dreams.

Dreaming to be free
damned to eternity
dreams canít set you free
damned to eternity.

I drained her juice - I tasted her sweat
I carved her flesh
I sprinkled her tears - I spilled her blood
I carved her flesh

I touched the serpent your adrenaline
digging my fingers in your head
I soaked the sin out of your veins
in the night I saw the raven circle
and your screams were the only truth you said.

Nightfever

I walk the street at night alone.
through blood and mud
I try to find my way.

I dive into the deepest abyss.
on wings of fire
I open my grave.

Guard - my - dreams
Save - my - tears
Self - deceiver
Nightfever

Too far gone - lurking in the shadows
left alone - on the misty meadows

I domain the midnight forest
the early morning frost.
In the haunted spectral castle
I stumble and get lost.
In the dark I wake up screaming
trying to catch my dream
now that Iím forever leaving
trembling in red fever streams.

Chasing Rainbows

Your heartbeat was dropping
into my silence
as I was calling the rain.
My yearning was burning
like fire
as I was opening my vein.

And I ran through the woods
where the pines grow wild and tall.
And I heard the wind rustling through the trees
branches and brambles tore my clothes
and scratched my face.

Ghostly voices were rising
from the fields
as I tried to break the chain.
My love was melting
like a candle
as the forest whispered my name.

I was only chasing rainbows
always heading for a dream
longing for a crystal vision
searching getting lost.

The Stormclouds Gathering

Standing at the window
staring into the eternal frost
far beyond the mist covered mountains
I am dreaming...

Stumbling through the darkness
through the winters grim and cold
far beyond the mist covered mountains
I am dreaming...

With dusk I rise from hazy mead
deep from the river Iím crawling ashore
Iíve seen eternity

The chanting woods have lost their dress
the birds they sing no more
breeding smoke - white desert plains
the path into the yore.

Dark clouds of pain and sorrow
embracing my domain
I fear the cold tomorrow
the mourning in my vein.
By the scarlet sunrise
Iím rising from my lair
yearning for your laughing eyes
the wind blows through your hair.
