Odes of Ecstasy Faithless (Act II) Lyrics

Embossed Dream in Four Acts Track Listing
CD 1
  • 1 Autumn's Grief (Prologos)
  • 2 The Total Absence of Light (Act I)
  • 3 Faithless (Act II)
  • 4 War Symphony (Act III)
  • 5 Gardens of Temptation (Act IV)
  • 6 Vampire Hunters (Epilogos)
  • The emotions which spring from
    A dark sea full of sins
    And cold thoughts

    Feel, Feel my aura now
    Embracing your purity
    It' s the call
    To your innocence my friend

    Breath, Breath my only wish
    It is hiding form your eyes
    Red it's color,
    Like the one of passion

    Burn, Burn my dead soul,
    Blow the ashes in the wind
    Let the night to spread
    It's veils one more time

    See, See the clouds of misery approach
    Taking the shape of your fears

    And the sun again is fading
    Burning every faith I had for
    For your beliefs, for your holy
    Dreams of immortal happines

    And the moon again is rising
    Lighting my dark thougths of hate
    Tears running from the idol,
    Cannot satisfy the dead

    "I gaze at the ceiling plasterwork
    The meanders draw me in their dance
    My happiness, I think, would be
    A matter of height

    Oh humble art that lacks pretension,
    How much too late I admit your teaching!
    Embossed dream, I shall come to you
    In vertical fashion"

    [Poetry by Kostas Kariotakis]
