Track Name: Rest
Resting for a year, I now arise.
Scabs begin to peel off of my eyes.
Blackness stares at me face to face.
Oak tree shade is my resting place.

I'm here at the gate to the meadow.
Blackness gave me comfort but now it's all I know.
When will you let me go?
When will you let me go?
Track Name: I Will Never Forget Your Smile
September comes to close.
Like seeds, we were to grow
To blossom in our bonding
With darkness still looming.

The night hides the pain.
The light from the stars will never change.

I promise to never forget the way you smiled.

Pierced and bloodied,
I felt your warmth around me.
The smile so bright in innocence;
With only darkness to come.
Track Name: As the Ambience Overwhelms Us
At the conception of love,
Under star-lit darkness above,
We share stories forever untold.
As the ambience hides the cold.

Is it too early to say I love you?
I'd searched the earth and serenity grew.
You lie next to me under the moon,
As the ambience sets out mood.

Love was gone but hath returned.
In bleak day, we found and yearned.
Now the night encompasses the whole,
And our love is given room to grow.

Don't let go, it's so cold.
Don't let go, it's so cold.
Track Name: Upon My Scars, A Tear Falls
The night you cried in my arms,
We both gave up and showed our scars.
It was dark and cold, and tears streamed down your face.
You held my arm, and let your tears fall into place.

Suffering the hidden shame
We both lived in our constant pain.
Families torn to shreds;
Leaving wounds that bled.

Screaming for your blinded sight,
As I see you suffer inside.
But then, we start to loathe and hurt.
Our flawless love turns into dirt.

The night; it never came.
The night; we chose our pain.
And now, the earth fades.
A new chapter revealed from shade.
Track Name: Take Me to the Well of Blood
I wish to be somewhere new,
Where faces I wish to lose,
No longer haunt my mind.
And where I can rest forever in time.

This place can't be my home,
For home is never so cold.
Love has come and passed me by,
and left me hoping to die.

Pain comes from the sky and ground,
Though in both solace was once found.
No golden ray of light to shine this time.
Let me rest, for this is all my life.

Take me far over the world.
Take me to the well of blood.
Track Name: Pull the Nails from My Skin
Silence blackens the sun.
In the black, we hide from the world.
Alone in life, I have become.
Pull your nails from me, I am undone.

You stare at me wondering what's next,
But I'm afraid I've lost myself in this mess.
You claw my eyes out; slowly cause me pain.
I'm alone in this sea of your ways.

Rip your nails from my skin.
Make me bleed; make me sin.
Pierce my hands; nailed to wood.
My cold damned life; no good.
Track Name: Portrait of a Windswept Angel (Re-Recorded Version)
One year ago today,
I gave my heart in every way.
Now this cold drives me insane,
But I'll still love you everyday.

I wouldn't give you for the world,
But the world, I'd give for you.
I hope you thought of me today.
Your portrait's all you have to hate.

Does my pain mean nothing?
I feel so disgusting.
All day I sit and pray,
that your love will return someday
