KAAMOS
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED)


FAREWELL
(music: Laihiala & SENTENCED, lyrics: Laihiala)

Iīve dragged myself through the blood and mud
and with burning eyes pushed the love away…

No, Iīm not the kind of man whoīd play for keeps…
-The enchantment lies in the moment of goodbyes

For eternity…
-My sun has set down
I dream to flee…
As I suffer "the black" bleed into me

I regret every single day I ever lived in my life
I gave all I had in me… So itīs time to say Goodbye

The breath of wind beneath my beating wings
is slowly dying down…
-Yet raging itīs final blow!

As it crumbles down… my castle in the air
The relieving words of farewell end my earthly Hell

For eternity…
-My sun has set down
It has ceased to be…
The lightning that once burned in me

I regret every single day I ever lived in my life
I gave all I had in me… So itīs time to say Goodbye


DEAD LEAVES
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, lyrics: Lopakka)

Yes, autumnīs here again…
to put all forms of life to an end
-Death has taken over and slowly fades the light away

The deadly shadows fall…
and the bleeding sun sinks down below
-The first flakes of snow guide me on my last pathway

Alive no more… what once was green has turned to red
Leaves start their fall… gray with the whiteness of whatīs dead

The wintry frost comes crawling
freezing all life thatīs on its way
The first dead leaves come falling,
hovering in the air with the rain

I feel the flaming frost…
I feel the burning ice and snow for the first time
since the night she was taken away

Alive no more… what once was green has turned to red
Leaves lightly fall… gray with the whiteness of whatīs dead

The wintry frost comes crawling
ceasing all life thatīs on its way
Dead frozen leaves come falling,
hovering in the air with the rain

…hovering in the air…

"…and as the last leaf hovers down upon the ground,
the end is at hand - Iīll find the one I came looking for…"

Alive no more… what once was green has turned to red
Leaves lightly fall… gray with the whiteness of whatīs dead

The wintry frost comes crawling
freezing all life thatīs on its way
The last dead leaves come falling,
hovering in the air with the rain

The End of Life comes crawling
ceasing my bleeding heart and now;
The last dead leaf comes falling,
hovering lightly down upon the ground

…upon the frozen ground…


FOR THE LOVE I BEAR
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, lyrics: Laihiala)

The silent peace this anguished morning brings leaves me to my grief
Oh, so many years Iīve been married to the grave
These bitter tears fill up my sorrowed eyes as I lay my head down
and beg myself to be so brave…

Oh, how I miss your loving hate… And yet I miss her loving hate

Cursed be this love I bear
Bereaved be this heart that bleeds for her
The love of the man lives here…
-On grain and the earth, rain and the chilling air

The burning passion the glowing sunset gives will leave me to my joy
and Iīll laugh upon the stroke that murders me
So farewell my love, take all of myself and kill this love forsaken
and please send me no need of thee…

Oh, how I miss your loving hate… And yet I miss her loving hate

Cursed be this love I bear
Bereaved be this heart that bleeds for her
The love of the man lives here…
-On grain and the earth, rain and the chilling air


ONE WITH MISERY
(music: Laihiala & SENTENCED, lyrics: Laihiala)

The stars shine down on the crimson sky as the night falls upon
The pain arrives and hurts like a twist of a knife…
It makes him wish to be gone

So heīs facing the curtain descending with a razorblade smile
Heīs taken "the path neverending" yet only to walk for a while

Heīs gazing through all that is there
and sees the world left for him to despise…
Blissfully feeling so dead, no glimmer in his eyes

So no more joy or forgiving, heīs one with misery
Nothing left to believe in, heīs reaching out to be free

On that trail the warrior rides
chasing the fall of his soul
Lifeīs been too dire so the fullest desire has died
deep from inside

On that trail the warrior rides
from the cradle straight to the grave
Within his heart he feels his soulīs being barred
yet aberrant… aberrant


THE SUICIDER
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, words: the serial self-killer)

"….I am the light that shall lead you to darkness…"

Well, here I am, Iīm back again
From the Deadlands I descend…
back from the dead, back from The End
…Iīm here to take Revenge!

Soon the deathly dusk will fall
and the Night Iīve waited for
…at the dawn youīll live no more

Breathing through Death… Living for Bloodshed…

Iīm the Suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away

I live to kill and kill to live
And long for dying endlessly
Each time I kill Iīm born again
…I have become The End

Thus I am and thus Iīll die
yet another thousand times
…I am dead and I am alive

Take a deep breath…
Itīs the last one you will get!!!

Iīm the Suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away
Iīm the Suicider seeking for the End of Life
(But) killing me is not enough to cease the flame inside

…Thus I kill and thus I`ll die…
Thus I will live for all time

chorus


THE RAIN COMES FALLING DOWN
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, lyrics: Lopakka)

now every single cloud becomes a raging storm
as I go seeking for the one I used to live for…

since your love was taken away
my heartīs been beating empty beats
well, it will end tonight…
-the blade shall set me free

a steady hand with this sharpened cold steel
will help me wipe away this pain that I feel

the rain comes falling down
my life flows to the ground
no longer feeling the pain
my flame now fading away

the rain comes falling down
my life flows to the ground
no longer feeling the pain
my flame now fading away

so here Iīm lying on these dead and bloody autumn leaves
waiting for death to take me where I want to be…

a steady hand with this sharpened hard steel
will help me wipe away this agony I feel

the rain comes falling down
my life flows to the ground
no longer feeling the pain
my flame now fading away

the rain comes falling down
my life flows to the ground
no longer feeling the pain
these leaves now becoming my grave

no longer feeling the flame
no longer feeling the rain


GRAVE SWEET GRAVE
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, lyrics: Lopakka)

I have seen my funeral in a thousand dreams
Its beauty…
Now the night descends
and drowns me in this dream once again…

No stars tonight… they all have ceased
No moon tonight to cast its gleam
…just a single flame lighting my journey…

Two at my feet, and two at my head
Two carrying me at where my hands are laid

Endless sleep… giving me peace
and eternally bringing release
Nothing more to be done
Nothing more to be lived for me

All my life Iīve waited for this eternal night
and now itīs time…
soon theyīll lower me down deep into the icy ground

Two at my feet, and two at my head
Two carrying me at where my hands are laid

…and once thereīll be a time that I have waited for
when the dawn will steal my dreams no more…

Two at my feet, and two at my head
Two carrying me at where my hands are laid
Grave Sweet Grave - welcoming me home
Grave Sweet Grave - Iīll be yours till the dawn

(the dawn shall steal my dreams no more)


BURN
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, line: Lopakka)

Just take the flame and Burn Yourself…
-Burn the pain away!!!


DROWN TOGETHER
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, lyrics: Lopakka)

Take this love, my dear, and cherish it in your heart
You shall have no fear…
Nothing could tear us apart

Accept this love sincere, from the bottom of my heart
for now our time is here…
and love shall heal the scars

Now twilight hides the clear, and haunts the day away
We cross the last frontier,
and it sets our hearts ablaze

The Waves lie still and gleaming on Our Sea
…and weīre drifting down the stream…

Letīs drown ourselves in this love
my darling, my only one
Letīs give our lives for this love we are in
- make it forever…

Let me dry your tears
and hold you in embrace
Until we disappear in the crimson haze

The Flames rise still so freezing on Our Sea
…and weīre drifting down the stream…

Letīs drown ourselves in this love
my darling, my only one
Letīs give our lives for this love we are in
(weīll) do it together…

"…and we take our dive into the waters of eternity…
…here all pain has died and the only ones are you and me…"

The Haze lies still and bleeding on Our Sea
…and weīre drifting down the stream…
(-to eternity!)

Letīs drown ourselves in this love
my darling, my only one
(Letīs) set sacrifices for this love we are in
- make it forever…
Letīs drown ourselves in this love
Letīs give our lives for this love we are in
(weīll) do it together…


LET GO (The Last Chapter)
(music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, words: Lopakka)

Now everything
that used to matter to me
is taken away
forever gone

The only things
I really have left here
…in this life
are bitter hate and this gun

From this trip Iīm taking now
Iīm never coming back…

Itīs time, tonightīs the night
-the last one of my life
This time Iīll just let myself go
and leave this world behind

The booze flows in
like blood to heart that beats no more
and blows the flame of fear out…

I raise the gun
- my finger on the trigger -
and put the barrel into my mouth

From this trip Iīm taking now
Iīm never coming back…

Itīs time, tonightīs the night
-the last one of my life
This time Iīll just let myself go
and leave this world behind

Itīs here, tonightīs the night
-the last one of my life
With no fear Iīll just let my life go
and take the six-feet-dive…
