The Endless Knot

May 16, 2009 Leave a comment

As the shore is not sea nor land,
like the time between the times
where the dawning is not day nor night
you are between the worlds….

Endless circle, bearing my footprints
With fast-sure-hand you guide my steps

Ans so I trod on your endless paths
And travel on throughout eternity
In these labyrinths of life
Not to know what the next step will bring

And so I trust in your endless paths
And travel on throughout eternity
In these labyrinths of life,
Not to know what the next step will bring

You keep the worlds aligned
You bond b’tween soul and flesh
You draw to the heart of hearts
With wisdom beyond fate

Endless knot, bearing my footprints
With fast-sure-hand you guide my steps

Pantokrator – The Hidden Treasure

February 21, 2009 2 comments

I have tried to find the treasure
The gold of ancient time
I find no clues in the scriptures
When I read between the lines
I find no key nor code
When I try to read behind
There are no answers there
To where the treasure may be found

I find no clues in the scriptures
When I read them I am blind
But in humility I see
And turn my heart to the Lord
As I study the scriptures
I reap my reward
For the word is the treasure itself

Yes this map means more to me
Than all the gold of Babylon
For it leads beyond the days
Finally where the rainbow ends
I will see the face of…

Jesus

…The Ardent Awaited Land

Yeah, these are a couple of awesome songs I uploaded to show some people, but I thought I could advertise the awesome site boomp3.com whilst doing so. Basically just upload a song (at top speed, for me!), then put an email and a title and optional description, and you can send the link and others can stream it. Amazing!

Extol – Paradigms

April 23, 2008 Leave a comment

Link to stream of the song

The worship of creation
Seeming endless
But it will end
And every knee shall bow

Thoughts of a coincidental existence
And a futureless world corrodes into the
Spinal chord of the narcissistic man
A paradigm shift for worse
My ego is my god
Given authority by the enlightenment
Of science,
The enlightenment of the age of freedom
Freedom – the name in which we legalize all
The name in which we tolerate all

Credibility for truth, image for substance
Weakness and failure
– unbearable elements in life
Subtly opposed through an endless flow of
Constantly replaced trends, neither allowed
To mature nor to fade
The surroundings,
A mirror reflecting the signals
Of admiration that makes my identity
A constant egocentricity providing a
Purging of anything threatening popularity

The peak of this shallowness
Displayed by the so-called stars
In their quest for self-actualisation
This beautiful people experiencing
The illusion of narcissistic prosperity,
Uncritically and boundlessly admired,
Simply for their own sake

Eternal Wait

November 19, 2007 3 comments

Over the forgotten sea
Voice of angel is calling for me
Somewhere where the mountains collide
That’s where I’ll find my new life

I have carried this burden so long for you
that nothing but sorrow I feel
I have let myself believe
that nothing would hurt deeper than the truth

Never has the wind blown like thousand years ago
Everything that I’ve known has left me on my own
Never have I felt the rain fall down like the burning flames
All I see is the face of eternal wait

I hear your silent cry
lost in the rainy night
No reason to live for
one reason to die for

I am the one who has fallen into the path of shadows
(and that road never seems to end)
I am the one who has drowned into the river of tears

Short reflection + Framing Armageddon

September 13, 2007 Leave a comment

Okay, so you’re home again now. That was an amazing week, and I miss you horribly, Yael. It’s like I have to reboot life every time after we’ve parted. Either way, to anyone else I haven’t told for some reason, Yael visited me here in Sweden for about a week, and we basically didn’t do much. Went to school a bit, and during the weekend, we went to Liseberg and stayed a night in Gothenburg. We also met up with Cheesebaron at the start, which was pretty pwnage, as he didn’t end up making it to the Amsterdam meet.

Anyhow, to go on, I bought Iced Earth’s new album Framing Armageddon (Something Wicked Part 1) in the store on its world premier, mainly because I was ridiculously anxious to see the lyrics. I had already downloaded the promo version with Mr Schaffer introducing himself and talking over the music every few minutes, but this is way nicer to listen to. Other than with friends, I’ve been discussing the album a bit on the BG forums, since IE has no official forums ;( The lyrics are quite interesting, and seem to relate quite a bit to all kinds of things that have been going on recently. I can’t wait to get the comic book they are releasing about the story, haha

I’ll go on and post the music and lyrics to one of the songs below, to end this post:

Pantokrator – King of Babylon

August 5, 2007 1 comment

How hath the oppressor ceased
The Golden city ceased
The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked
And the sceptre of the rulers

Sheol is moved for thee
The kings of ancient times
Arise from the thrones of slumber
To pity thee in thy shame
Art thou also stripped of all pride and power?

How art thou fallen from heaven
O Lucifer son of the morning
Thou hast said in thine heart
I will ascend above the stars of God!

The worms is spread under thee
The maggots cover thee O king of pride
The least upon the earth feed upon the greatest

All the kings of the nations lie in glory
In their final resting place.
But thou, king of pride, is cast out of thine grave
Like an abominable branch
Like the raiment of the slain
Like a carcass trampled under feet
The seed of evildoers shall never be renowned
I will arise against thee saith the Lord
Rise like I rose once before
To cast out the spirit of pride
From the mountain of the north

How art thou fallen from heaven
O Lucifer son of the morning
Thou hast said in thine heart
I will ascend above the stars of God!
