Playing Dead – Sleeping In Penumbra ~ Amorantos (Eternity)

Sleeping In Penumbra –

Why am I so cold
Shrouded cries the soul
That’s when the dark came in
Swallowed up the sun

Where am I below
Hell hath come bestowed
In this place your dreams of grace
Darkness holds your soul

Show your mask be found
Worms that twist in ground
Dark the deeds of men who seek
Spirit through the grave

Walk without your fear
All is life is clear
The heart of your heart says
Your soul is passing
Changing forever beware

Praise above a god has come
He hides infinity
Though he shines it’s not quite right
For darkness is his seed

I find myself just a pawn in a play
A vision in a vision long gone astray
I find myself just a word in a mouth
An image in a mirror far away

I am the writing on the wall
And it’s just a dream
I am the ears the mouth and all
Darkness is the thing I see
Killing me

I find myself just a pawn in a play
A vision in a vision long gone astray
I find myself just a word in a mouth
An image in a mirror far away

I am the writing on the wall
And it’s just a dream
I am the ears the mouth and all
Darkness is the thing I see
Killing me

Walk down to the water’s edge
Feel yourself in every breath
Soldier the light you seek
Always in the dark you speak

Stand beside the highest tree
Feel yourself in every leaf
Soldier the light you seek
fashioned in the words you speak
Awake

Sleep and you’ll dream of a world in between
You are caught by the dream

Sleep and you’ll dream of a world in between
You are caught by the dream

(Children fall from heaven
To be nailed upon our walls
With kings and queens and horses
There are dead men in their stalls
Their bones will lie forever
As a sign to one and all
Take heed)

Soldiers fight for heaven now
They’re buried in the soil
The cross laid bare forsaken
As the dust collects and falls
Soldiers fight for heaven now
Imprisoned in that soil

Somewhere in the forest
The wolf devours guests
The bear has his claws
And he tears at your chest
The mountain’s falling down on your chest
Do you still look to heaven for rest

Also in the forest
The wolf is a test
The bear has his wisdom
And sees you as pest
The mountain’s falling down on your chest
Do you still look to heaven for rest

Soul screams paradise
Flesh screams the grave
Both dream infinity
Their freedom from the slave

Don’t you hide your eyes together
Come dream no more your grave
Your soul can be saved
Don’t you hide your eyes forever
Come dream no more your grave
Your soul can be
Can be saved

Who screams of paradise?
Who screams the flesh?
God dreams infinity
In you he dreams
Death

The Universal force of darkness and ignorance
steered the people who followed them into great
troubles by leading them astray with many
deceptions. They became old without having
enjoyment, they died not having found the
truth and thus the whole of creation became
enslaved forever, from the foundations of the
world until now.

Amorantos (Eternity)

Dare I say “Supper’s Ready”?
Only it’s not ours
This one belongs to the worms

Worms that wriggle in and out of someone’s grave
You or me it’s all the same to him he says
Here where my table’s laid
The world beyond your grave

Me I’m alone within a storm
Held fast as winds devour my form
Heaven has prepared your after life
A shelter from the storm

Me I’ll awaken in that storm
Hold back the wind’s devouring all
But in my eyes heaven has long been
The face of your grave

Come I’ll take you to a sacred place
Far away beyond the stars
That’s where you want to be
But can’t remember why

Come I’ll show you in this sacred place
Flesh the one you leave behind
That’s where I want to be
And I remember why

“We say we live and are really alive
How do you know, who told you this?
Can you trust them, whoever they are,
or were?
I believed what I was told
But now I know I have only been playing dead
Living a lie”
– Cyrus Bell
