Katatonia The Promise Of Deceit

Evening

Coming through the crowd

I hold my head high

Straining

Out here dissonance surrounds

I hold my head high

I see the wings behind your back

Burned all the maps to reach you

Watching distant names

I saw danger

And then I felt the pressure

Downfall

This is our time

The setting sun over all I ever had

So when did you come to think

That you would tell me that I have no one

And when do you think that you

Will give back the things that you owe me

Burned all the maps to reach you

Watching distant names

I saw danger

And then I felt the pressure

So when did you come to think

That you would tell me that I have no one

And when do you think that you

Will give back the things that you owe me

Katatonia Velvet Thorns

Ten Strings of Darkness on a Violin Sad

I watch the Mountains where the Frost begins

The Northern Storm is Guiding me

To the Forest

Silently the Nightbirds fly

Their last scream my eternal Dirge

Under the Fullmoon a Funeral

In the Forest

Still I walk with open wounds but the Third is now

rising

Through the ashes of a Dying Love a new soul is born

I watch the feathers like Snow in the Winter

The Angels that fell, splendid to rape

Tall are the shadows that dance before me

as they

Shows the way to the Dawn

An Autumn forest that never reach

Condemned to Sorrow

Chasing the Wind / Like a Spirit fly

Through the Autumn trees / Towards the Sky

Hoofs are pounding / In the clouds above

The Chariot of Sorrow / Watch me die

Hear the Violin / So sad and blackened

Like a Breeze / The songs of Drynhwyl

Chasing the wind / Like my spirit die

Dreaming of the Queen / The queen of roses

Now they die, Pure Sorrow flow

My Souls Funeral, Too close to the End

Now they Die, Purest blood pours

Forever Die, but I must…

I must Die

Through the Sky

And the Forest

Follow the Wind, go North my Child

to the purest of Winters

Go to the Forest that never Ends

There you’ll find your fate

And to the North I rode, on the coldest of winds

I watched the Mountains where the frost begun

Where no Angels ever dare to tread

Where Death is all mine

At last I found the Throne of Bereavement

Grim and bleak raised to the Sky

The Velvet Thorns of Drynhwyl are mine

and so are death and sadness

See…

My final Sacrfice

In the trees you will hear my voice

ever calling ever falling

Ten Strings of Darkness on a Violin Sad

Flowing tunes on Autumn Funeral

Ashes spread in the Northern Storm

Katatonia Nowhere

Atmosphere decays in me

I fail to convict my useless days

The lack of substance

Circle of downfall

Exit less ways

Into pale wake

Tired attempts to crush the design

It’s like nowhere

I cannot sell the plight that is mine

Everything is real

But I’m not here

I’ve lost my strength somewhere nowhere

Used to care about weather

Used to plan the days that came

Used to try and watch you

Used to know my name

Someone said remember

But I can’t remember anything at all

Anything at all

Katatonia Sweet Nurse

O my sweet nurse

Pull the curtain aside for a while

So that I can for once have

The sun in my eye

You smile and say

It’s a fine day

O my sweet nurse

Pull the curtain aside for a while

Then like a ghost at night

You come around all dressed in white

Talking to me

And so I have to drink

The water with your poison spilled

For no more will

O my sweet nurse

Seems you have so little time

That you rather put

Me to sleep than sit by my side

Katatonia Sleeper

O my, your fever is high

I lay my hands upon you

O my, haven’t you heard

The truth is untrue?

Now I’m breathing

I could not breathe until you did

I’m one second after you

Now I’m breathing

I could not breathe until you did

Just a second after you

[2x]

Someone inside your room

Who is it there behind you?

What does he want from you?

Sleeper what did you see?

I close the window to the street

Parents died, left a child

Unattended for a while

Now I’m breathing

I could not breathe until you did

I’m one second after you

Now I’m breathing

I could not breathe until you did

Just a second after you

[2x]

Someone inside your room

Who is it there behind you?

What does he want from you?

Sleeper’s song will you listen to me sing

The bird is here I can see the edge of his wing

If you die now how can I then live on?

Don’t give up, you must live on

Sleeper’s song will you listen to me sing

The bird is here I can see the edge of his wing

If you die now…

Katatonia Chrome

The walls are painted

Different every second

My eyes are of chrome

It is television

Can’t let go of my leg

It’s itching so and bleeding

Layer by layer

I’m peeling away

Burn down my house

And make something happen

Stab me in the heart

And make something stop

‘Cause I am so distracted

I am slightly shocked

By how things can keep going

Like a dead man’s clock

A mirror is hanging

Kinda loose on my wall

I’m passing it sideways

I’m saying hello

My brother is halfways

Through a book I’ve left him

Called me today

To see what I’d say

Katatonia Residual

Rid my mind of residual thoughts,

until knowledge will arrive.

They closed my eyes,

and cold stars would align.

In the city the lights are many,

but I can’t find it amusing anymore.

I watch the night unfold and vanish,

stood on the highway.

So hey,

let’s celebrate, there’s no need to cry.

No one can comfort you, there’s no one around.

But baby,

Can you hear the sky blowing at night?

It’s our wealth!

And I’m ready to go if you’re already there.

Saw your trail in the snow,

did you find the way to freedom?

It’s the last day I’m here,

can you hear the sky fall down?

Collapsing over ravaged ground!

The sickness rising,

the towering wall, going for the fire.

Found the signs of the road I was looking for.

Bend my desire and fade from their sight.

The dents is all that I had,

the tidings from our fading sun.

Made me wiser!

Take your time,

everyone will want to go:

Step by errant step!

Degraded my heart,

that’s what you do when you have nothing more to find!

Degraded my heart,

that’s what you do when you have nothing more to find!

The dents is all that I had,

the tidings from our fading sun.

Made me wiser!

So hey,

let’s celebrate, there’s no need to cry.

No one can comfort you, there’s no one around.

But baby,

Can you hear the sky blowing at night?

It’s our wealth!

And I’m ready to go if you’re already there.

Saw your trail in the snow,

did you find the way to freedom?

It’s the last day I’m here,

can you hear the sky fall down?

Collapsing over ravaged ground!

Katatonia Inside The City Of Glass

Under lights that never go out

We drive

And focus on the change

You become my face as I replace it

With the mirrors and the glass

And the houses that we pass

We drive all night

You’ve come a long way to find

Emptiness

We hear it all night

See it flicker overhead

So void of life

In due time all of this will pass

In a sudden storm

When you take my hand

So cold this april

Don’t you think

We call on the void

The void will answer us

Katatonia No Good Can Come Of This

This is no good way out

But it’s a challenge or so I see it

Death’s head upon my wall

Afield lies nothing but disorder

No good can come of this

Whatsoever I can tell you

No good will ever come of this

The road to happiness I never knew

I read a letter I never sent

And saw me smiling on a picture

This is nothing I remember

Whatever made me feel so

There are children

On the freeway

I have my ways

Playing with death

Katatonia Follower

Hurts to see

My incapacity

Shame

Idle mind

No

You have changed me

My mouth is shut

Stupidity have shut my mouth

So when you come

I’m too unprepared to come along

I hold your hand so hard my knuckles turn white

When you clear the streets

And kill the lights

See the line

Border to freedom

The words

Underlined

My name

You have changed it

Your tone change to cool

This is how you tell me once again

How I have nothing on you

How everything is supposed to end

Father

I won’t make it

It’s the journey of a life

Fix my eyes on the sun

What have I done
