Track Name: Withering Light - Lantern
In crept the twilight, it stole the whole sun from them, fleeing into horizon
Treasures unsung of in the distant hearts of man follow the lantern's light

This crypt is a heart
No light shining through
The broken bones of old hopes
Rests within this tomb

These wounds were the night
Hiding all our scars
Words and promises
Fragments of who we are

In crept the twilight, it stole the whole sun from them, fleeing into horizon
Treasures unsung of in the distant hearts of man follow the lantern's light
Track Name: Withering Light - Noose Hymn
Speechless, no words describe the tongue of the gallows
Weakness, like a vipers kiss slowly crippling you
Ascend the staircase that descends into abyss

Towards the colors of enlightenment or the darkness of ignorance
What can you decipher clearly?
What do you see fit?

Den less, like a wandering wolf on the verge of starvation
Bloodless, like a cowards heart as he flees from his station
Why can't you accept this truth?
Why can't you accept this truth?

The rope tightens claiming this borrowed life from me
Handling matters so simply
The crowd looks on so casually
The beauty of causality

The platform door opens, he falls through
Strangling, struggling, finally letting go

They cry out in joy, they see the light from his eyes has faded, has gone dim, like a waning crescent moon
They cry out in hunger, the blood has not sate their wounds, they crave more

This was not our expected ending
Have you not accepted your fate?
We were not ready for this distance
The chasm, it waits

Speechless, no words describe the tongue of the gallows
Weakness, like a vipers kiss slowly crippling you
Ascend the staircase that descends into abyss
