Century Child

  • Bless the Child

    “I was born amidst the purple waterfalls.
    I was weak, yet not unblessed.
    Dead to the world. Alive for the journey.
    One night I dreamt a white rose withering,
    a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
    I dreamt all my future. Relived my past.
    A witnessed the beauty of the beast”

    Where have all the feelings gone?
    Why has all the laughter ceased?

    Why am I loved only when I’m gone?
    Gone back in time to bless the child
    Think of me long enough to make a memory
    Come bless the child one more time

    How can I ever feel again?
    Given the chance would I return?

    I’ve never felt so alone in my life
    As I drank from a cup which was counting my time
    There’s a poison drop in this cup of Man
    To drink it is to follow the left hand path

    “Where have all the feelings gone?
    Why is the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you?
    Now unblessed, homesick in time,
    soon to be freed from care, from human pain.
    My tale is the most bitter truth:
    Time pays us but with earth & dust, and a dark, silent grave.
    Remember, my child: Without innocence the cross is only iron,
    hope is only an illusion & Ocean Soul’s nothing but a name…

    The Child bless thee & keep thee forever”

  • End Of All Hope

    It is the end of all hope
    To lose the child, the faith
    To end all the innocence
    To be someone like me
    This is the birth of all hope
    To have what I once had
    This life unforgiven
    It will end with a birth

    No will to wake for this morn
    To see another black rose born
    Deathbed is slowly covered with snow

    Angels, they fell first but I’m still here
    Alone as they are drawing near
    In heaven my masterpiece will finally be sung

    Wounded is the deer that leaps highest
    And my wound it cuts so deep
    Turn off the light and let me pull the plug

    Mandylion without a face
    Deathwish without a prayer
    End of hope
    End of love
    End of time
    The rest is silence

  • Dead To The World

    All the same take me away
    We’re dead to the world

    The child gave thought to the poet’s world
    Gave comfort to the Fallen
    (Heartfelt, lovelorn)

    Remaining, yet still uninvited
    Those words scented my soul
    (Lonely soul, Ocean soul)

    It’s not the monsters under your bed
    It is the Man next door
    That makes you fear, makes you cry,
    Makes you cry for the child
    All the wars are fought among those lonely men
    Unarmed, unscarred

    I don’t want to die a scarless man
    A lonely soul
    (Tell me now what to do)

    I studied silence to learn the music
    I joined the sinful to regain innocence

    Heaven queen, cover me
    In all that blue
    Little boy, such precious joy
    Is dead to the world

    Heaven queen, carry me
    Away from all pain
    All the same take me away
    We’re dead to the world

    Dead, silent, constant
    Yet always changing

    My favorite view of this world

    As he died, he will return to die in me again
    Weaving the cloth, giving birth to the Century Child
    Who gave his life not for the world but for me
    Innocence reborn once more

  • 04 Ever Dream
    Ever Dream

    Ever felt away with me
    Just once that all I need
    Entwined in finding you one day

    Ever felt away without me
    My love, it lies so deep
    Ever dream of me

    Would you do it with me
    Heal the scars and change the stars
    Would you do it for me
    Turn loose the heaven within

    I’d take you away
    Castaway on a lonely day
    Bosom for a teary cheek
    My song can but borrow your grace

    Come out, come out wherever you are
    So lost in your sea
    Give in, give in for my touch
    For my taste for my lust

    Your beauty cascaded on me
    In this white night fantasy

  • Slaying The Dreamer

    I’m a priest for the poorest sacrifice
    I’m but a raft in a sea of sorrow and greed
    You bathed in my wine
    Drank from my cup, mocked my rhyme
    Your slit tongues licked my aching wounds

    Put a stake through my heart!
    And drag me into sunlight
    So awake for your greed
    As you’re slaying the dreamer

    Swansong for the Wish of Night
    God it hurts, give a name to the pain
    Our primrose path to hell is growing weed

    Blame me, it’s me
    Coward, a good-for-nothing scapegoat
    Dumb kid, living a dream
    Romantic only on paper

    Tell me why you took all that was mine!
    Stay as you lay - don’t lead me astray!

    Wake up, mow the weed
    You’d be nothing without me
    Take my life if you have the heart to die

    You bastards tainted my tool
    Raped my words, played me a fool
    Gather your precious glitter and leave me be
    The Great Ones are all dead
    And I’m tired, too

    I truly hate you all!

  • Forever Yours

    Fare thee well, little broken heart
    Downcast eyes, lifetime loneliness

    Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

    Constant longing for the perfect soul
    Unwashed scenery forever gone

    No love left in me
    No eyes to see the heaven beside me
    My time is yet to come
    So I’ll be forever yours

  • 07 Ocean Soul
    Ocean Soul

    One more night
    To bear this nightmare
    What more do I have to say

    Crying for me was never worth a tear
    My lonely soul is only filled with fear

    Long hours of loneliness
    Between me and the sea

    Losing emotion
    Finding devotion
    Should I dress in white and search the sea
    As I always wished to be - one with the waves
    Ocean Soul

    Walking the tideline
    I hear your name
    Is angels wispering
    Something so beautiful it hurts

    I only wished to become something beautiful
    Through my music, through my silent devotion

  • Feel For You

    You were my first love
    The earth moving under me
    Bedroom scent, beauty ardent
    Distant shiver, heaven sent

    I’m the snow on your lips
    The freezing taste, the silvery sip
    I’m the breath on your hair
    The endless nightmare, devil’s lair

    Only so many times
    I can say I long for you
    The lily among the thorns
    The prey among the wolves

    Someday, I will feed a snake
    Drink her venom, stay awake
    With time all pain will fade
    Through your memory I will wade

    Barely cold in her grave
    Barely warm in my bed
    Settling for a draw tonight
    Puppet girl, your strings are mine

    This one is for you for you
    Only for you
    Just give in to it never think again
    I feel for you

  • Beauty Of The Beast

    Long Lost Love

    Trees have dropped their leaves,
    Clouds their waters
    All this burden is killing me

    Distance is covering your way,
    Tears your memory
    All this beauty is killing me

    Oh, do you care,
    I still feel for you
    So aware,
    What should be lost is there

    I fear I will never find anyone
    I know my greatest pain is yet to come
    Will we find each other in the dark
    My long lost love

    One More Night To Live

    Safely away from the world
    In a dream, timeless domain
    A child, dreamy eyed,
    Mother’s mirror, father’s pride

    I wish I could come back to you
    Once again feel the rain
    Falling inside me
    Cleaning all that I’ve become

    My home is far but the rest it lies so close
    With my long lost love under the black rose
    You told I had the eyes of a wolf
    Search them and find the beauty of the beast

    All of my songs can only be composed of the greatest of pains
    Every single verse can only be born of the greatest of wishes
    I wish I had one more night to live

    A saint blessed me, drank me deeply
    Spitting out the misery in me
    Still a sinner rapes 1000 saints
    Sharing the same hell with me

    Sanest choice in the insane world:
    Beware the beast but enjoy the feast he offers


    “Oh, sweet Christabel. Share with me your poem.
    For I know now, I’m a puppet on this silent stage show.
    I’m but a poet who failed his best play.
    A Dead Boy, who failed to write an ending
    To each of his poems.”

  • The Wayfarer

    I went into the wilderness with Uncle Walt
    I discovered the wild
    Learning to suck all the experience
    Seeing the world through cradle’s bars

    The wild blessed me with an errant mind
    Showing the way for the ultimate lore
    I went around the world, beyond the wild
    Finding my home from an ocean shore

    Wayfarer, heartlander
    What if I only had
    One more night to live

    Home is where the way is
    My road goes on forever
    One more voyage to go

    Dead to the world
    Alive for the journey

  • 12 Lagoon

    Imagine a perfect beach
    Without a mermaid
    Imagine a perfect hideaway
    Without a time

    Ocean Soul

    Imagine a perfect Eden
    Without a friend without a serpent

    Ocean Soul
    Lonely Soul

    “Feeling lonely and content at the same time,
    I believe,
    is a rare kind of happiness”

    Ocean Soul
    Lonely Soul
