In memory of Oscar Karlsson [1976 - 2016]
(Gates of Ishtar, Defleshed, Helltrain, Scheitan, Sarcasm, The Everdawn, The Duskfall)


Lost in the maze of my mind
So condensed, yet infinite in nature
Aimlessly I search for meaning, yet
Condemned to walk a path of loneliness

A life filled with hate,
with pain and suffering
Remorse for a forgotten world
As my sky falls for the last time
I stare into eternity's divine domain

Forlorn, I ponder days of shining gold
Illusions so pure... that could not stand the test of time

Begotten Suns set
On days lost to silent memory
A token to end the pain
Here I stand, before the river's flowing hatred

At the river's edge
Who will hear my cries?
Feel the torture
Of a thousand mourning souls!
At the river's edge
Only death remains
Falling into a breathless eternity

Fade to eternal unlife

The downward spiral
and the brink of damnation
An unknown world...
Now's the time to dive into exile!

Dancing with the dead
Where only death remains
Who will save me
From eternity's lonely gaze?
Dancing with the dead
Where only death remains
No one will save me
From eternity's lonely gaze

I see now...
This life was not meant for me
Will you pay the toll
To send me through the gates?
