Anathema – Cries On The Wind

Anathema – Cries On The Wind

Reaching out…
How things look different on the way down
Disillusioned, Ive lost desire
Will I burn in the unforgiving fire?

From the flames, I walk away
Ive found a way to erase the pain
An empty bottle, my receptacle
A guardian angel called escape

Dont dwell on the forthcoming
As I know it wont be happening
And you know, when Im gone
Youll hear my cries on the wind

Anathema – Far Away

Anathema – Far Away

One common, subterranean destination
One life, another day
A vestal child unveiled by temptation
Innocence slips away

Far away

Been down so long
Too deep the water that I tread
Sometimes I feel myself going under
Sometimes I envy the dead

So take me far away

Eternity Part III
(Words Music: D.Patterson)

So little time
Your crystal eyes gaze into mine
A burning flame
Forever dreaming, dreaming a lie

Trapped inside internal eyes
Caressed by innocence, a sanctuary for your mind
Born alone beneath pale sardonic skies
One love, one life, one sorrow

I wont reproach myself this time
A condemned man, granted a sweet reprieve
A turn of fate, a genial twist of the knife
Undying affection for life

Anathema – Destiny

Anathema – Destiny

Ive feeling I may not be coming down from this,
I was searching through the heavens and somehow I slipped,

I feel, Im seeing so clear

Trying to forget tomorrow and all thats happened,
This is not the way, the way I was meant to be.

I feel, Im seeing so clear,
I thought I was never going to die.
I feel, Im seeing so clear,
We need more time.

Slipping away, I think Im gonna crack,
Misplaced trust, loyalty stabbed in the gut.

I feel, Im seeing so clear,
I thought I was never coming back,

Ive been down for awhile,
And now Im coming back…

Anathema – ALTERNATIVE 4

Anathema – ALTERNATIVE 4

Its killing you, youre killing me,
Im clinging on to my sanity,
All I need is a short term remedy,
Come and hide me from this terrible reality…

Dreaded memories flood back to me,
But theres still a wilful mind behind these cold,
psychotic eyes,
Now I tread this path so differently,
Ive opened my mind and darkened my entire life.

Ill dance with the angels to celebrate the holocaust,
And far beyond my far gone pride,
Is knowing that well soon be gone,
Knowing that Ill soon be gone…
