Lyrics and Music 1988, 1990

(Previously Unreleased Extended Mix; the original, shorter edit first appeared on the debut 7" released by Open Eye Records in 1994 and then again on the Metal Supremacy 2LP compilation "Chapter One: 1989-1999" in 2002)


A call to the sea to cleanse my soul of ill
Of hate and depression be freed, my fate, thus fulfilled
Summon me forth, the susurration of the blackest tides
No longer the shores of emptiness shall I tread infinitely inside

Frigid mournful winds traverse the black chasms of my soul
Awaiting sweet death, I will again be whole
Tumultuous waters extract me from this mortality to which I’m bound
Evolved from the body, useless time, expired, futile life, drowned
