Track Name: Loss - Kyrie Eleison
Loss - Kyrie Eleison

Tentacles like sinister whips
a boy and a boat and me
Tentacles and a storm without mercy
and a god who failed to see

This ship is not more than a coffin
the sea is not more than a grave
the world roars
dark is the sky, dark is the depth

And so it seems that the ship is
losing the battle, we have
not given up yet
but dark is the sky, dark is the depth


I try to reach and hold him
But the brute gets him first


Monster, Kraken, Demon
why does the sea claim my son and his life
Monster, Kraken, Demon
just take me

What should I have done
God forgive me, please
I beg you spare my son
don’t let him die like this

God will not save us

on the lips of my son a silent goodbye
then the Beast and the sea devour the boy

Monster, Kraken, Demon
why does the sea claim my son and his life
Monster, Kraken, Demon
why do you spare me

With each tear of my eyes
the salinity of the
water rises

And the storm is nourished
with each of my screams
With every heartbeat I curse that I still breath

I raise my glance
to the god who let us down

What was I supposed to do
Track Name: Denial - A Paradox Farewell
Denial - A Paradox Farewell

I need to wake up
I need to wake up
I need to, I need to
need to wake up

I´m coming home
walking on glas
with each step
Memento comes

the house is quite, he isn´t here
never to see his face again is my biggest fear
Maybe if I just wait long enough
Maybe if I

No sea can is deep enough to make me stop waiting
But I curse every hour anew
There is no certainty if there is hope
And I will keeping a light burning as long it leeds you home
As longt as your name is not written in stone

My lips won´t speak a farewell
My eyes won´t fall asleep
My ears won´t miss a whisper
My heart won´t skip a beat

a promise that I made
a promise that I keep

The whole world tells me to stop to waiting
the whole world tells me to accept my fate

If the see the light
They can hear me cry

My lips won´t speak a farewell
My eyes won´t fall asleep
My ears won´t miss a whisper
My heart won´t skip a beat

A promise that I made

My son cortege is near
but I will keep
the light on
Track Name: Anger - An Unwelcome Reminder
Anger - An Unwelcome Reminder

You made my own body
enemy territory

Even if I wanted to sleep I couldn´t
Can´t you hear the rushing sea
earsplitting, deafening
As if the sea doesn´t want me to forget

And the salt encrusts my lips
petrified, fossilized
and my tounge withers in brine
as if the sea doesn´t want me to say goodbye
Everything I tell and dine
has the aftertaste of a coastline
It won´t let me forget, that you are dead
you´re dead

And I don´t want to remember

Even if I wanted to forget
there´s so much pressure in my chest
the density of a perfect eclipse
Where my heart lies submerged

but still it pumps

till the rusty red and waves blend
till the brine’s triumphal procession

till I drown
and wake up again in noise

And I wish I could silence the rush
It´s getting quieter when I scream
when I beat my fists in the shore
It breaks the salty scab from my skin

I am, cut by rocks
Cuts, made by Me
Obey the rules
Rules, made by the sea

The sea will wash my wounds
and salt them anew
Track Name: Grief - Hiob Had More Tenacity
Grief - Hiob Had More Tenacity

I can see my wounds
As a stigma they brand me
If my blood wets the soil
It’ll sprout no buds

I'm not a saint
because I suffered and gave up
I'm not a saint
Because I gave up praying

Before me you've left others
Why should it be any different with me
Why would you hear me while
you ignore others with a smile

How many times you failed to see
or wilful closed your eyes
when tears were shed
How many times I’ve been on my knees
so many countless times
I sang your useless hymns

When do you want to help
those who hope
I was one of them
of them who hoped

But when I saw that you will never grant clemency
I could no longer take your tyranny.
And when you ask me how I got into this frenzy
Because you forgot the faithful

How can I hope that my son is with you
A child who had not learned yet to be grateful

My son go on
go on and praise
praise god, who doen’t see you
praise god, who doesn’t hear you
praise god, who doesn’t belives in you

If you, god, want a saint, do not treat us like sinners

Praise Hiob

Just tell me
How many times you failed to see
or wilful closed your eyes
when tears were shed
How often I was on my knees
so many countless times
I sang your useless hymns
Track Name: Acceptance - A Last Goodbye
Acceptance - A Last Goodbye

Look carefully, god,
what you have done to me
There is still a light for him
It's not that I do not know he won´t come back
I know he now belongs to the sea

But he was still so young
When the sea decided
to make him his son

But he is still my son
And I will come with him

Because it´s cold where he is now
Captured by seagrass, caressed by shells

So I sail, one last time, to the sea now
dripping with salt, which I repel

because it´s cold where he is now
swayed by the waves, kissed by the whales

so I sail, one last time, to the sea now
to be with him when he pales

I will not be homesick
because my home is where my son is

And I will look for a storm,
and will give him the name of my son,
for he may bring me to him.
And I will look for a storm,
and will give him the name of my son,
for he may bring me to him.

Cause he is still my son
And I stay by his side
Cause he is still my son
And I will stand by his side

That´s why I´ve turned the light off
I do not want to look back and hope for what will never happen.
Theres no wistfulness in my heart
Perhaps, just like him, I can become a creature of the sea.

My new home is the sea
and I will hopefully find you

Look carefully, god,
what you have done to me
I´ve turned the light off
I know, I know, he won´t come back
I know we now belong to the sea
Track Name: Abstract - The Lost Boy
Abstract - The Lost Boy

Let me out
What have I done
Why am I locked up in here
Talk to me Talk to me
Don´t leave me alone in the dark

I can hear you crying in front of the cellardoor
How long will you wait? Till I’m my old self again
Open this prison!
Can you still understand me at all.
I've been beating the door for so long

Open this door

Why can´t you just love me
Why can´t you just free me
is it because I heard the call of the sea
Is it because I started to ,seemingly, breathe water
Is it because my flesh is covered by scales

And I can hit the door, no one can hear it
except for you
I won´t let you fall asleep, I will remember you

You´ve turned off the the light and left me alone
It´s been days since I last heard you

You´ve left me alone with the curse of Insmouth
