Portal of I

1. Tapestry Of The Starless Abstract

All Horizons Fall Through Dying Stains
A Crimson Crown To Call My Own
O Home Is Everywhere I Voyage
And Darkness Is Always With Me...

I Call To The Sirens Echoing In Sweet Laughter
Broken Hopes 'neath The Surface
With Haunting Eyes They Stare...
Through Black Waters, Wearing Tresses
A Figurehead Warped, Stares Homesick Afar

Never Depths... My Dear Despair

Blind In Delirium, Navigating The Continuum Flux... Nothing
Submerged In Limbo, Of Nautica They Sing... True Majesty
Oceans Wide, Eyes Wide... Forever To Treasure... Carry On
Infusing Insight, The Fabric Of Space Ignited

Silent Time Reveals Tragedies Chartered
All Triumphs Were Drowned...And The Sirens Too...
Silent Time Reveals...
All Triumphs Were Drowned...
Symphony For The Pilgrim, Intrinsic Wake, Opulent Discordant Soul... My Arabesque
Setting Sail From Paradox Lost To A Paradise Found
Paradise, Paradise Found
Paradise, Paradise Found

2. Xenoflux

Perfection, A World Apart We Are
Bright Star And The Eye
...I Am

Riding The Tides. Crux... Astral Grace
Down Silver Locks To Cosmic Crossings
How Far Have I Come?

As Saturn Devours, Of Mind-Streams' Oddity
Rift Wrought Souls Rupture, Rippling...
All Shackles Have Now Fallen, Nebulae Horses Pulse On
Can I Feel?

Locked Within Pandora's Music Box
Watching From The Portal Of I
Baying Through Woven Soundscapes
A Black Dog Lays At My Feet... Oblivion...

Cold, Celestial Brilliance
The Canvas Unframed, Elation
Circus Of Radiant Motion, Alive

A Handful Of Earth... The Only Reminder
Majesty, Take My Hand

We Weep To Believe, Where Only Dreams Have Witnessed Beyond
We Weep To Believe, Where Only Dreams Have...

3. Of The Leper Butterflies

Oh Why?
Oh Why The Butterfly Of Man?

Oh Why?
Oh Why Precious Beauty?
With Eyes That Speak Tongues
Foresight And Memory, Maelstrom Wormholes
Behind, The Vast Passion
A Wish Is Made Upon A Nebula
From The Leper's Kiss
Conjuring Ordered Chaos
Kaleidoscope In Motion
Adorned A Porcelain Mask
O'er The Enigma... Pierrot Of Te Garden
Where Light Parts Way
The Leper Has Come Home...

I, Leper
...Why, Why?

4. Forget Not

masquerading, the grey vultures
coalescing in black swansongs
...of the dead the dead sigh
therein the quickening shadows
kisses upon lifeless fingers the dead sigh the dead sigh
...of always the dead sigh
over the frontier of always
in remembrance, they are anthems
...the anthems
...forget not
...for those gone
...forget not

Down By The Waters, Beneath The Willow Drapery
Cold, Timeless Prince... Cloaked In Raven Wings
With Two Penny Moons, Passage Through The Boatman
Across Starlit Waters, Were Dreamscapes Are Golden...

How They Lived They Will Be Remembered
We Now Stand In The Footsteps Of The Anthems
Ne Obliviscaris
For The Noble Souls That Were And Will Be
On... The Dead Sigh On
Ne Obliviscaris
They Are Anthems
Ne Obliviscaris
Forget Not... Never
What Waits Beyond In Exile's Garden Sings Of The Unknown
The Renaissance Of Death Echoes Eternally, All's Not Lost
Death Echoes
Death Echoes
Forget Not

5. And Plague Flowers The Kaleidoscope

Kings of our emptiness, the flagellants align
Their mouths fill with questions, blessed they are by God's tokens

Ware to walk the painted... the painted path

Walking the painted path through our plague fields

Ware to walk the painted path
Through the plague fields

Kings of this carousel, disfigured upon white horses
With Goya's claws and Dore's wings
Down golden locks to red crosses
Crowned children screaming from funeral shrouds
To rapid eye movement, heart-strings undone
... our beautiful filth dances... and plague flowers

Why our wall to reason fall... only human

Kings of our emptiness, the flagellants align
Their mouths fill with ashes and death's tongue

The dappled dying
Flowering cold grey tombs
With crumbling walls... I feel
Our truth is laid bare

... And plague colours
A masterpiece of pain
The portrait of what we are...

6. As Icicles Fall

can you remember the words of our dying Mother?
all winters' white... and wonderful
the third eye spies the greatest pain
in league with the cycle of life... feel the change
her breath of frost upon the House of Man's beating heart
sleep children (sleep...), such colours to be seen
sanguine glaciers, the veins of our prelude
fore this is where she lies. Mother, be our eyes...

As The Icicles Fall, Moments Of Reverence
The Invention Of All, Everything Calls And Every Lifeline Ignites
The Tears Of Mother, Everlasting Season
...But The Phoenix Empire Exhales, The Curtain Call To Embers
Within Us She Lives, Around Us She's Dying
The Fading Lights Blacken, Gardens Euphoric...Cowering Underworld Order
The Winds Sing Our Dirge... This Is Where She Lies
The Veiling Unveiled...Mother, Our Mother Beats Down Er Ashen Wings
Mother, Be Our Eyes...

Grey And Dripping The Blood Of Mother
Feel Her Pain
Evolving, The Shroud She Gathers
This Is Where She Lies
In Abstraction Without Colours
We Die With The Fall Of The Icicles
Lost To Pigment The Pale Paradise...

Swept In Tow To The Danse Macabre
In Hand To Cold Claws Of Time...
Broken Shutters Gape Open Wide
Breathing In Hoarse Whispers On High...

Cry... White Noise Witch Choir
Ice Tears Of Our Mother

Pillars Of Monolith And Ice, Laced With Lightning
Besieged By The Void, The Anti-Matter Of Mind
Once Were Painted Walls, Now They Preach Parched Skin Petals
The Freeze-Frame Tomb Unfolds For Our Mother...

Cry... White Noise Witch Choir
Fall Of The Icicles


7. Of Petrichor Weaves Black Noise

Swan Of Pale
Of Porcelain White
Her Halo, A Bloody Sun
Framing A Botticelli Face
Of Petrichor Weaves Black Noise
Where Her Frame Disfigures
Pale Of The Swan, Painted... Dying
Wilting In Red Ribbons
Lashing Black Sails, A Tattered Mane
Her Mouth,M A Death's Head Smile
Tongueless Choirs And Baited Breath
Ever Watching... The Angels Beheaded
Bleeding This Heart, Come Clarity
Of Petrichor Weaves Black Noise

Light Draped, Ephemeral
Her Stain Glass Horizon
The Houseglass Shattered
Glacial Starffell Memories
Caligari Haunting...
Within This Cabinet Of Change
Upon Flutter Eye Wings
In Efflorescence, The Shadows' Sarabande
...An Silence Was Her Name... The Silence So Loud

Time... Cleanse These Severed Hands Of Time
Rain, Rain Again
Wash Away This Pain
O Moonkissed Flesh
New Kingdom Come Of Earthen Vast
Libera Me...

Rain, Rain, Earthen...
Shine, Shine
New Kingdom, Shine
Shine On...

Dreamer, I
Dream O Dream
Dream, Follow Me Afar
Weep, Come Kingdom Come
(Ohh) Hope...

Libera Me...
