IMMORTAL SOULS

Ice Upon the Night

Text by A.Sarkioja


01 Everwinter


“I face the wall of a storm, that freezes my soul;
	..with heart open wide I walk in..”

I close my eyes and let the wind embrace with it’s flow;
As I sence warmth commece in within.
I walk alone in the snow beneath the starlit sky;
I am free from the load of sin..

Into the purifying light I walk without fear;
I feel the frost of holiness enter me..	

	Frozen from the world I’m in;
	State of mind.. ..of divine!
	Everwinter..
	Frozen state of my mind;
	Divine in the world I’m in;
	Everwinter is nigh!


“Everwinter – Divine state of mind..”

In the heart of the north I have walked through the snow;
I look back at the trail that I came.
One set of footprints I see, but now I know I wasn’t alone;
Because the trails are not mine..

Into the purifying light I walk without fear;
I feel the frost of holiness carry me..

	Frozen from the world I’m in;
	State of mind.. ..of divine!
	Everwinter..
	Frozen state of my mind;
	Divine in the world I’m in;
	Everwinter is nigh! 


02 Welcome to North Welcome – I invite you to a journey of your life; Snowstorm – On the frontier of dishearten mind. Walk with me into these woods at this winter night; Gaze upon the starlit sky to see the northern lights.. Frozen – Scenery gives a glimpse of hope; Chosen – Trail that leads through the drifts of snow. Upon your soul caress of winds purifying breeze; Just beware don’t breath too deep or your lungs may freeze.. Welcome to north – Land of raging frost; Welcome to north – This is the haven of cold. Threshold – As we stand before the gates of north; Stronghold – The halls of ice breath precence of lord. We walk further into blinding light that heals the scars; Natures roaring silenced under my fast beating heart.. Welcome to North – Land of raging frost; Welcome to North – This is the haven of cold. Welcome to heaven of cold; Welcome to north – The land of frost.. Welcome to north – Land of raging frost; Welcome to north – This is the haven of cold.
03 Sacrifice All for the love.. I walk into moments darker than night; Through the walls of apathy. And all decay from which even the sun withdraws.. Oh – Light may fade, but the fire; Fire’s burning still.. Oh – Don’t ask me to understand; My need for your love. And the sacrifice.. My soul in turmoil of emotion; I try to focus and close my eyes. As the reason tries to overcome what spirit has achieved.. Oh – Light may fade, but the fire; Saturates the will.. Oh – Don’t ask me to understand; My need for your love. And the sacrifice.. Sacrifice – All for the love.. Oh – Don’t ask me to understand; My need for your love. And the sacrifice.. Sacrifice – All for the love..
04 Painbearer Eve of the cold I take a walk outside; To escape the inner fight.. Wind blows the snow over my troubled soul; Pain that won’t leave me alone.. Under the burden that makes me insane; I fade away.. They pull me into their lonely world of pain; A horror parade.. Sorrow in my torn soul; And a war within.. To whom can I turn? Hollow in my thorn crown; The load of grief.. The pain that I bear.. All the confessions poured upon my soul; The turmoil inside.. To whom can I turn to on my own sorrow; I pray for my soul.. Sorrow in my torn soul; And a war within.. To whom can I turn? Hollow in my thorn crown; Can I turn to You? The Painbearer
05 Edge of the Frost I wander through the wind and snow deeper into the unknown; Old spruce trees and the sights of snowy fields I pass by; The forest of my mind.. With fear I look the shapes and silhouettes; One of them I stop to stare. Black eyes of night looking back at me; Raven of despair.. I stare into raven’s eyes and see reflection of my life; I see the sorrow and the tears, the demons of my fears; Memories that tear.. The snow glimmers like stars before my eyes; The glow of my fate. Black eyes of night looking back at me; Raven of hate.. Raven.. On the edge of the frost; I still remember it’s eyes black as night; Raven.. Raven.. On the edge of the dark; I can still feel it’s cold eyes upon me; Raven.. I wish the visions be gone and to see them nevermore; As in the dark appers a light, the red of sunrise; The filtering light.. Raven breaks the silence with a shriek; And spreads it’s black wings. The grace releases me from my pain; Raven of grief.. Raven.. On the edge of the frost; I still remember it’s eyes black as night; Raven.. Raven.. On the edge of the dark; I can still feel it’s cold eyes upon me; Raven..
06 Cold Streets I feed the fire in the night and wish the memories away; As with tears I watch the flames of departure. I still think of you and it makes it even harder; I can’t remember but the good times we had.. It was the love that become hate and all the wrong words were said; I never wanted this to be, but still it is. Seems like these nights are getting each time longer; Longer they are when I pass them all alone.. I walk alone the cold streets. Love is gone, cold streets. Love is playing it cruel game upon my broken heart; Loneliness is my only game on these cold streets.. The freezing wind from the sea blows it cold over me; The sea lies frozen in ice as do my soul. Seems like these nights are getting each time colder; Colder they are when I pass them all alone.. I walk alone the cold streets. Love is gone, cold streets. Love is playing it cruel game upon my broken heart; Love is no game on these cold streets.. I walk alone the cold streets. Love is gone, cold streets. Love is playing it cruel game upon my broken heart; Love from ubove is what I need on these cols streets..
07 You “I wait alone in the dark, for the gates to unfold; Far and distant You are, far and distant.. ..and so cold.” You – Thee so weak in belief; Everything you must see; But I’m the breath of wind.. You – Science your own fate; In your world you resonate; While I’m the balance in within.. I’m a man of the ways of this world; And when the night falls the wolf reappears.. You – Still it was You for me; How can I believe; Never knew like of You; You for me.. You – All it is done for me; How can this be real; My refusal of You; You for me.. You – Lie, steal and deceive; And only time you come for me; Is in your moments of pain.. You – Blessed are thou who have not seen; And yet have believeth; I’m beginning and the end.. I wear the white clothe through the day; And when the night falls the wolf reappears.. You – Still it was You for me; How can I believe; Never knew like of You; You for me.. You – All it is done for me; How can this be; My refusal of You; You for me.. You are a man of the ways of this world; But still I shine on the crimes you once did.. You – Still it was You for me; Can I now believe; Never knew like of You; You for me.. You – All it is done for me; How can this be; My refusal of You; You for me..
08 Suicidalive I watch the snow flowing down gently from the open sky; It makes me feel more alive. I’ve been lying here alone, isolated from the crowd; After my suicide.. Feels like my all emotions die, in depression I lie; And they ask the questions why. I can’t remember the scene, from the tragedy I see; Just the red in the snow.. They try to hide the tears and look away; But they just stare at my scars.. My broken heart pumped the blood; Out of my broken veins. Knife alone in the snow; Red of life run to waste.. A new start I will seek, mind is strong but body weak; I await my heart to heal. Just like staring into light, I am blinded by this fire; As long as life there’s hope for me.. They try to hide the tears and look away; But they just stare at my scars.. My broken heart pumped the blood; Out of my broken veins. I lie alone in the snow; Red from life as He came.. Alive!
09 Man of Sorrow ”Another lonely afternoon.. I just wait for tomorrow; With longing and sorrow..” I still see your eyes before mine; Thou our time’s far behind. In you; No more life.. The cloak of night ends the day; Leaving me in the darkness. As these memories comes to seal my fate.. Your blue beautiful eyes; And starlit smile. Haunts me through sleepless nights.. I still keep hearing your last sigh; Your sincere forgiveness. And all I could do was to watch you die.. I am the man of sorrow; I invite you to my pain. My lonely eyes reflecting; Their appetite for revenge.. My thoughts keep drifting back; To when you were gone. I fell into this maelstrom.. “Revenge is mine”: says the Lord; And if I could leave it to Him. I would be so much greater being.. I am the Man of Sorrow; I drown in this pain. Your tearful eyes lie open; As you wither in my arms.. Farewell – this is the end.. This pain – you were took away.. I am the man of sorrow; I drown in this longing. Your last sigh of forgiveness; More love in death; than I have alive..
