    Vision of the Uncreated Light (Golgotha song)

    Ok, this is a little dorky, but . . . in the novel I'm working on, there's a band (Golgotha), and I've been writing the lyrics to their songs. You know, just for fun. But some of them are actually starting to read like they could be real songs (I might get my brother to write the music to them). For now, they're just lyrics, but imagine them in a blackened death metal style (A Hill to Die Upon's Holy Despair album was what I was thinking). This one would have been written a while after the events of the story.


    Vision of the Uncreated Light
    (Golgotha song. Lyrics by Leon/Azrael)

    Crush my head and snap my spine
    Hurl me from heaven and let me fall

    Just let me see. . .
    Let me see

    Thick darkness in the temple
    The heavens stormed in smoke
    Let me see you face to face
    The starless all, the night and day
    Behind beginning of the world. . .
    Let me speak your name and die
    And I will see
    And I will see

    [instrumental]

    Strike me dead and blind my eyes
    Steal my soul and burn my dreams

    Just let me see. . .
    Let me see

    Thick darkness in the temple
    The heavens stormed in smoke
    Show your face and let me see!

    [extended instrumental]

    You too have thrown yourself down
    Have been thrown into the dust
    I curl my body in the hollow where your bones have been
    And let the vultures strip off my skin

    "So long is the way to the unknown, long is the way we have come. . ." ~ Turisas, Five Hundred and One

    Sophia House

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.

    Here's another one, same band, but different lyricist.

    These Northern Voids
    Lyrics by Caleb/Archangel

    My lungs fill with fire
    I open my eyes to a desert of ice
    In these Northern voids there’s something waiting. . .
    Something whispering. . .
    Something secreted in the dark. . .
    In the cold. . .

    Face to face with myself
    I see the skin shrinking close to the bone
    I see the eyes that stare without seeing
    And I know that somewhere, someone
    Will not wake up tomorrow. . .
    Face to face with truth
    The wind unwinds my assumptions
    The cold unravels my house of cards
    And I. . .am terrified

    [instrumental, initiating key and tempo change]

    With no place
    . . .to put my feet
    I fall
    . . .in slow motion
    Until the silence
    . . .overtakes me
    Until the silence
    . . .surmounts my thoughts

    So pure the winter, so complete the cold
    A relentless landscape with no comfort
    A mighty mother. . .
    But barran is her womb

    [instrumental, return to original speed]

    Face to face with myself
    I see that I have nothing to claim
    I see that I am weak made weaker
    But I know that somewhere, somehow
    You were once as small as me. . .

    You were once as small as me

    [instrumental]

    She, the winter,
    Has given birth to death
    The death of all my heresies. . .

    [brief instrumental]

    In these Northern voids You are waiting. . .
    You are whispering. . .
    You are the secret in the dark. . .
    In the cold. . .
    You are the still small Secret
    O king of silence
    In these Northern voids

    Christ is risen from the dead,
    trampling on Death by death,
    And on those in the tombs,
    lavishing light.
