Is it true these barren trees can grow again? Will they grow again? I need a place to hide And if my spirit is a sword, it’s dulling And I accept the night In the light I grow In the light I grow no more Oh, brilliant starlight, come dance with me again I’ve not the wind at my back anymore We dance until we reach the end Arms reaching out, I cannot bear to watch it fade In the light I grow It’s calling I’m falling into the edge I can’t deny my own experience I am the void Waiting for years, drowning in tears Pleading for some kind of answer What is it for? Where do I fit? How can I finally be happy? Cry as I gaze at the light Withering, catching on fire Oh, how it shines a light on us all Yet no one can know what the source is Filled with horror, I’m slipping There’s nothing left to cling to Like a candle that’s dying I’m swallowed by the darkness For life, I can’t deny the slings and arrows For death, I can’t deny there’s something peaceful, yet… No soil so scorched it cannot heal No seed so old it cannot sprout It’s calling I’m falling into the edge where I will sing my songs of experience It’s calling I’m falling The story ends but I will sing these songs of experience Walk with me now I am the void Feel the weight of a thousand eyes press upon you Cry aloud and proclaim your name Holy Mighty It’s a feeling, I’m reeling Blood religion It’s a framework, a life’s work Absolution Walk with me now into the light Fire walk with me no more Black as oil I am the void

Taken the long way Dark realms I went through I arrived, my vision's so clear In anger and pain I left deep wounds behind But I arrived Truth might be changed by victory Beyond the void but deep within me A swamp of filth exists A lake it was of crystal beauty But Arda's spring went by I've heard the warning Well, curse my name! I'll keep on laughing No regret, no regret Don't fear the eyes of the dark lord Morgoth, I cried All hope is gone but I swear revenge Hear my oath I will take part in your damned fate I, I will always remember their cries Like a shadow which covers the light I will always remember the time But it's past I cannot turn back the time Don't look back There's still smoke near the shore But I arrived Revenge be mine I will take part in your damned fate Morgoth, I cried It's my oath! So don't fear the eyes of the dark lord Run! Suddenly I realized (soon you will be free) The prophecies I've never believed in (set your spirit free) My deeds were wrong I've stained the land and slain my kin (burning soul) No release from my sins It hurts (the curse of Fëanor runs long) Time and only time will tell us Tell, was I right or wrong? When anger breaks through I'll leave mercy behind I will take part in your damned fate Morgoth, I cried It's my oath So don't fear the eyes of the dark lord I, I will always remember their cries Like a shadow they'll cover my life But I'll also remember mine After all I'm still alive I'm still alive (I'm still alive) Morgoth, I cried All hope is gone but I swear revenge Hear my oath I will take part in your damned fate
