Sufferion - Hamartia of Prudence (2003)
1. The Letter
The Letter
Flame Still Burns
And all the dreams I've ever felt
Failing to reach or comprehend
The essence of you

...And all the times I've feared for you
I've shut the door and passed right through
The flame burns for you

The emptiness in me
Was filled with you within
All the hope you sowed in us
I've crushed and turned to dust

My Flame still burns
Hurting you, I'm bleeding too

With every breath I breathe
With every sight I see
Yet whence I am falling down
You've put your arms around

My flame still burns
Hurting you, I'm bleeding too

Beneath the hollow skies
Your gentle, sunken smile
Slow sway of your white breast
Slumbering breath upon my chest

I've shattered, ripped and torn
But still you came for more
All the pain I've put you through
My flame still burns for you

My flame still burns
Hurting you, I'm bleeding too
3. Antracone’s Dream
Antracone’s Dream
Lost is My Name
I am the shameless lust in you
I am the vanity of man
I am forever strength in you
I am the one to lift the hand

I am the jealous tongue, the poison dart
I am the lost one, anger in your heart

I am the hunger, plague and strife
The virtue stained
I am the bitter tear you hide
And pride regained

I am the armour, flame and torch
I am selfpity blinding you
I am the spear, blade and the shield
I am the warlust of the fool
I am the vicious lies and frauds
I have been watching every move

Lost is my name, yet known by all
I shall relieve your pain
Lost is my name, yet called by all
I shall release your rage

I am the jealous tongue, the poison dart
I am the lost one, anger in your heart

I shall betray and bend all rules
You're mine and arrogant
I'm in the hate of disapproved
And fall of man. The fall...
The fall of man!
5. The Wraith at the Shore
The Wraith at the Shore
Heart Unyielding
My heart is unyielding
My dreams are fulfilled
Yet so full of longing
Without him it's stilled
Untouched by all evil
My truelove and I
My hope and my sole will
His sight so divine

My heart is stern faithful
No tempt or a lie
Never bitter nor hateful
O'er waves chanted sigh
Shamelessly yearn for him
For his heart I know
In the winds my lust burning
In the winds my heart woe

I am your fear of weakness
I'm your guilt and the fault
I grant you all eternal
I grant you all desires

My heart is sheer forthright
Nor guilt neither fault
No shadows of hellwraith
No sin to be found

I am your fear of weakness
I'm your guilt and the fault
I grant you all eternal
I grant you all desires

My heart is unyielding
I am his but alone
Yet so full of longing
Awaits whilst he's gone
My love stands eternal
His touch I desire
Wraiths of all infernal
Our love will defy
7. The Conspiracy
The Conspiracy
Shame Forever Mine
Pain my friend
In solitude
This coldness suits me right
All the pain
I've struck through you
Is the shame forever mine

I felt you in my shiver
I hear you in my dreams
My body numb and linger
Stunned as dark reveals

It breathes the sweat of night air
It lurks behind my brows
I'm sorry that you were here
To witness all my faults

Pain my friend...

Longing for touch
Longing for arms
Around my hips
Lips for my lips

I'm worn and cast aside
Her thighs lay open wide

Yearning for one
Yearning for all
In lust I beg
Tongue on my neck

I'm worn and cast aside
Her thighs lay open wide

Pain my friend...

Invitia amente est
Perpetua pudeo mei
Carita Suus Renovare
Furore et dolore suus

To hurt and bleed this I deserve
May every tear strike every nerve
I dwell in depths, where I belong
Just let me sink with flames below

...with flames below!

Let my life, hour by hour,
Like fallen leaf by earth devour
With hollow end my hollow life
Without her bear my solemn strife

Longing for touch...

My emptiness
Yearning for one
I hide in you
Yearning for all
The tears I cry
In lust I beg
The shame I hide
Tongue on my neck

Rain my friend
You were right
This emptiness suits me fine
Every torn out
Tear she cried
Are for shame forever mine

Shame my friend
I hide in you
This loneliness stills the night
Every moment
Without you
Is the shame forever - mine!
9. Scoria Arrives
Scoria Arrives
Dark Whispers
I will be there when you mock thyself
In the nighttime, when the shadows dance
I will be there when you burn thyself
She betrayed you, coldness tears your soul

Out of the darkness
Ye've locketh me in
I have been aneath
I'll feed your fear

Whose is this voice, and why this strayness,
This bitter rage I can't control?

She'll grind ye down
She'll throw ye out
I'll be all hate that hides in ye
And all the things banished

I shall promise you vast victories
She will be crawling back on hands and knees
I shall cease your grief and heavy moan
I shall stick the blade through every whore

We have no choice, drowned She shall be
All th' wounds she stroke in thee
Tenfolded striken back in her
Tenfolded every whore shall burn

In dreadful deeds we shall unite
As one we shall not cease the fight
I shall set ye on th' throne of night,
Bring forth revenge that you desire

"I grind my teeth, I grind my teeth
I bite and pull ye deep beneath
Oh, let the children come to me...!"

...And I shall set, yer desires free
For dark is our hate
So let there be rage!

...And I shall show ye th' sterling strength
Of thousand pariahs
Let there be revenge!

I will be there when you mock thyself...

My sight, has it frailed,
has darkness prevailed?
Is someone still here with me?
Here in me?

These hands are they mine?
Is this smile or a grin?
What is this hate in me?
My love, where is she?

Scortum! Scortum!
Scornful whores!
Blade or a loin they are yearning for more!
11. The Murderer
The Murderer
Wither in Silence
Wither in silence my precious flower
Draining your pith and I devour
Would I crush you in my arms and make you bleed?

I'll hiss my tongue and feast on your ear
Summon the words that you need to hear
Your tears will stain my blade, but I won't feel

Twisting my hands around your limbs and
passing myself through unknown lands
You're stripped for me to play your every chord

Wither in silence my precious flower

Wither in silence my lustful flower
wither and scream until it's over
I shall crush you in my arms and we shall bleed

Nothing to fear I'll slide into you
Just draw me near, I'll see right through you
The taste of female heat upon your neck

I'm growing stench with bitter breathing
I'm nothing like you have been dreaming
I shall know and still let down your every need

Wither in silence my precious flower

Biting -Tearing - your skin
Twisting - Tasting - your sweat
Stroking - melting - deep within you

Fading - Screaming - death grin
blade in - thrusting - blade out

So wither in silence my lustful flower
wither and scream before it's over
As I've crushed you in my arms, together we ...bleed
13. The Hideaway
The Hideaway
The Fall
No single kiss, nor touch, nor vow
Dare not say, yet you know how
So fair and tender came to be
Such sickening sight for me to see

My dark wishes and hate unleashed
Dissolution leads me astray
Utter yet sweet can't be released
My path painted with scarlet stain

The chains of failure that I had borne
All the guilt ere has it torn
Out now this torment I've closed the wall
In life and death my word stands tall

The pain your lust has thrown to me
I shall return the suffering
I'll tear your throat and let you bleed
With steel I'll fill your every need
Come take my hand
I'll give you all my pain
I'll tempt you fain
Under my shining blade
Hilt in my hands
Woos me like blushing maid
Beauty of whores
By bodkin sharked and stained

From self-pity awoken, thus
Rewrote our names in crimson dusk
Grandeur and strength untouchable
In hate our oath unbreakable

I've reached too far, in darkness dwelled
Could I be saved, saved from myself?
Did I miss the point of no return?
Is this the light, or strength I yearned?

Set your fate in my hands and we will prevail
You'll rise to the throne of lands, for you they shall hail

Come take my hand...
15. At the Cabin
At the Cabin
Her innocence lay
Shred with a lie
Sweet lips decay
Forever mine
Grandeur of hilt
Do not bear guilt
Eyes wide to see
Your madness in me

In the lanterns pale and sulphur air
My senses frail, no longer mine.

Solace of rage, blinding embrace
My sweet heart to bleed apart
Foil too painful, shent and wreakful
To hear or bow to any god's law

Their eyes so hollow so hollow
Their words so shallow so shallow

Her innocence ravished, by whom is this done?
Such cowardly curse, second to none
My demons ensnared me with torture and strife
And now it all ends here by god or a knife

I'm beyond horizon, on the ocean of flame
I'm numb and paralysed never feeling the pain
No one can hurt me now, I've left all behind
Beyond of all hope and fear, this void so divine
