Cruxshadows - a few more songs

Next up, as I started digging into the Cruxshadows – and no, not all sources were originally legit, though iTunes already existed so I started buying the albums once I was satisfied with a few songs – “Seraphs” caught my eye. Especially the Revox Lost Souls mix.

My body's made of fire black and deep and cold burning for the choice i made so many years ago And love will keep me tethered for my wings are stripped of flight but into my mad deluded world they cross the battle lines into their end One dream of God One dream of less one dream of strength and cowardice with the rage of the seraphs at my side One dream of man one dream of hate one dream of love one dream of hate with the rage of the seraphs at my side The punishments I carry now are of my own design for once I brought the hand of God and now this gift is mine

A fallen angel who once stood among the holy host and now is cast out, in punishment.

Next up, a strange piece, apparently written for an album inspired by the RPG Vampire: the Masquerade.

The Words:

She cries, children often do When they're cold, and hungry too, Come closer, look deeply in her eyes So delicate, quite unlike her smile Life clinging backwards, In the fall of dread confusion, Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips, All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation, Far more sinister than the price of doubt, Yet you remain, Still you remain, And she says: Pray for daylight, Pray for morning, Pray for an end to our deception, Pray for daylight, Pray for morning, Pray for an end to our deception... Life clinging backwards, In the fall of dread confusion, Still this silence gnaws upon your fingertips, All-yielding prayer, for instant isolation, Far more sinister than the price of doubt, Yet you remain, Still you remain, And she says: Pray for daylight, Pray for morning, Pray for an end to our deception, Pray for daylight, Pray for morning, Pray for an end to our deception... (Violin solo) Pray for daylight, Pray for morning, Pray for an end to our deception, Pray for daylight, Pray for morning, Pray for an end to our deception... (X3)

This one actually has a fair bit to unpack – but it’s an interestingly creepy song about a girl vampire on the hunt.

Last up, “Marilyn, My Bitterness.” Yeah, it’s your typical breakup song, but it’s still got cool music.
