vernal awakening lyrics – dark tranquillity

enthroned through this age
of confusion an urge
the weakness and folly
since aeons emerged

creates life in fetters
from cradle to grave
a future in darkness
with mankind enslaved

trail of life decayed
wasteland whall prevail
hatred lies in store
chaos evermore

so runs the spiel
from where lives are found and lost
learn from past failures
prevent to pay the cost

sunlight fades as nightfall rises
in shadows formed in clay
what once dwelt shall dwell no more
when darkness sees the day

a bleak winter of enmity
and terror shall take form
what man created will be ruined
when hate conjures the storm

when our time spells an end
to our ruling of this earth
will a wasteland remain?

will all life cease to be
by the wicked ways of man
his enfeebled domain?

nature left in flames
suffering, now to maim
cataclysm at hand
unveiled unto man

so runs the spiel
from where lives are lost and found
progression in spirit
eliminates all bounds

sunlight fades as nightfall rises
in shadows formed in clay
what once dwelt shall dwell no more
when darkness sees the day

a bleak winter of enmity
and terror shall take form
what man created will be ruined
when hate conjures the storm

hallow minds start to burn
with the flaming shades of fall
let disorder arise

an avenge to be brought to the ones
who graveled earth
hides now cloaked in disguise

blind deception, m*ss confusion
interbreeding dark illusions
tumbelling, falling, brings conclusions
constant fatal life-corrosion

autumn beckons forth the
winter rising gloom in hand
raging with bleak coldness ’til
vernal light commands

final chapter closed
world devoid of use
failure brings despair
death reveals its lair

sunlight fades as nightfall rises
in shadows formed in clay
what once dwelt shall dwell no more
when darkness sees the day

a bleak winter of enmity
and terror shall take form
what man created will be ruined
when hate conjures the storm
