I call thee, my thirsty demons! Can the surging sea, tear my heart from thee? Can distant dwelling drain The ancestral blood that warms my veins? I call thee, my thirsty demons! Isle, of my Fathers! hear the filial song Of him, whose sources to thou belong! By the mighty hand was carved from the land Thy matchless sons The foundation laid Thy matchless arts The nation made Pale shades Those moments from our time are gone We couldn't see it straight away Those moments of our life won't come We couldn't feel it straight away Their tombs are crumbling in the desert around, Whilst I... ... across the sea, but dream of that sound that used to be truth in the elder days Return, Sweet Vision! Allow me again Be when we all were more than a wind of pain and despair Can this be dreaming? Must my eyelids close That I may catch the fragrance of the rose?
I stand all alone, On a sandy shore, I whisper of fame but silence returns I envy the sun I envy the sky True freedom they have Mine is but a lie It cramps me, the fear of what could be near of what lies beneath But can be found here I stand all alone, On a sandy shore, I tremble and cry But I can not die It burns within my greatest sin my once pure life turned to ruin I scream out loud but nothing is found no voices at all not a single sound On this blackened shore The home of the brave These dry empty words Should they dig my grave?
Idiocy 07:17
In the evening ring the concrete walls From deadly weapons, the silver plains and blue lakes, over which the sun abates and slowly dies down Dark rolls; encircles the night Dying light; the wild lament of their shattered mouths of their withered hearts Red cloud, in it an angry god lives The spilled blood itself, the night Dispersed between the darkened souls, decomposing, the idiocy shines O proud grief! Your earlier altars The scorching flame of the mind Feeds from the fear, from inner wars the world obdurately binds
Butchered infants for my bieliefs The world whails in grief On the purple stone sullen and livid necessity sits from which deepest womb, packed with dying wishes, upon the salvage of god's will poisonous flowers bloom Drink Drink the blood Drink aloud Spit it out (5:30) Melody - Kamil (5:56) Melody - Andrzej (7:12) Lead - Andrzej Within this endless day of wrath fresh roses burn in fires of the calm sun Roses of Blame Roses of Sin (8:29) Lead - Andrzej Butchered infants for my beliefs The world whails in grief Drink Drink the blood Drink aloud Spit it out
