Apocryphon lyrics - The Sword

The Sword - Apocryphon Lyrics
There are two bands with this name: 1. The Sword, a stoner metal band from Texas, United States 2. The sWord, a melodic punk band from Leeds, England 1. The Sword is a stoner-metal four-piece from Austin, TX. First conceived in 2003, the Sword really hit their stride about a year later, when founding vocalist and guitarist J.D. Cronise joined forces with guitarist Kyle Shutt, bassist Bryan Richie, and drummer Trivett Wingo, and made a much raved-over appearance at Austin’s famed SXSW festival. National touring stints with everyone from Clutch to indie rock darlings …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead followed, and by mid-2005 the Sword had been picked up by New York-based indie label Kemado Records, with their mu... more...

1. "The veil of isis" lyrics

As the night arrives the day concedes her crown,
In the dying light the shadows grow.
When the world is dark and still without a sound,
That which was hidden is shown.

Tears of sorrow flood the land.
All that has been shall be again.
The dead will rise and the living must depart.
What if all you've seen are lies
When the veil is from your eyes
And you face the infinite with fear in your heart?

The wind blows cold as the days begin to wane,
The lord of the dead assumes his throne,
When men have gone and only ghosts remain
That which was secret is known.

Tears of sorrow flood the land.
All that has been shall be again,
And the moon shines over the sea as the mother of man.
Somewhere seven ships collide,
Seven sailors lose their lives,
But their voyage continues on the other side.

Asherah, saw below,
Queen of heaven, she who knows.
 
2. "Cloak of feathers" lyrics

She wore a cloak of feathers and rode a mare of purest white,
A silver chalice in her hands, a look of sadness in her eyes.
A thing of beauty to behold, but a sorrow to possess,
She'll take all that you offer until there's nothing left.
Nothing left.

Face hidden in shadow beneath a hood of quills.
The fittings of her raiment conceal all her ills.

Beneath her cloak of feathers lies a body soft and fine,
Eyes of hazel green, flowing hair as dark as wine.
A thing of beauty to remember, but a sorrow to forget,
She took all that I gave her 'til there was nothing left.
Nothing left.

Of owl and of raven, of peacock and dove,
Of swan and of sparrow, woven with her love.

Face hidden in shadow beneath a hood of quills.
The fittings of her raiment conceal all her ills.
 
3. "Arcane montane" lyrics

Tell me, O Mountain, what secrets do you hold
Buried deep beneath the earth in hidden walls of stone?
If ever man in all his days climbed your mighty slopes
To behold the gods as they danced, and listen as they spoke.

Tell me, O Mountain, your secrets!

Hear me, O Spirits, I would ask of thee,
Locate a lass who's fair of form and deliver her to me
The world can be a lonely place to pass the time,
Watching and waiting as the miles roll by.

Hear me, O Spirits, lend me your aid!

Tell me, O Mountain, what secrets do you hold,
Crowded on your misty feet or deep within your bones?

Tell me, O Mountain, your deepest secrets!
 
4. "The hidden masters" lyrics

When the days become as dark as night
And the world begins to change
There are those of you who die of fright
Or tear your eyes out from the pain

Your gilded houses will give no shelter
When the heavens fall
The sacred tomes will give no answers
When The Masters call

Forgotten ages unknown to man
Before we crawled out from our caves
Exalted patrons of earthly clans
Elevation of their states

Your gilded houses will give no shelter
When the heavens fall
The sacred tomes will give no answers
When The Masters call

Look at yourselves
Look at your world
What have you done?
What have you become?

Look at yourselves
Look at your world
What have you done?
What shall you become?
 
5. "Dying earth" lyrics

Beneath a dimming sun great cities moulder and decay
In brooding nights of gloom and on
Through melancholy days
In the manses of the mages great magics still hold sway
And those who dwell within are wont to say

As the sun fades from the sky
This ancient earth prepares to die
Here at the end of all time
A slow demise so saturnine

As aeons pass unheeded subtle Sorcerers parlay
Among the haunted hills strange creatures stalk unwary prey
There may come no tomorrow so all live for today
And the crimson twilight turns to grey

As the earth prepares to die
The waning sun fades from the sky
Here at the end of all time
Our slow demise becomes sublime
 
6. "Execrator" lyrics

They speed us unto our doom
Turn the earth into our tomb
Deserving no less than death

They know nothing
They give nothing
They love nothing
They are nothing

Your life is insignificant
Your thoughts are of no consequence
All that you know will one day be gone

You know nothing
You see nothing
You get nothing
You are nothing
 
7. "Seven sisters" lyrics

Is the time right
To find a new religion
Under the ground
Way down below

Into the light
with fear and superstition
stumbling around
And now she goes

Oh she wonders
how much there is to know
and how long itr will take her
to reap what can be sown

Seven sisters sobbing by the shore
longing for their lost loves, whose ships sail no more
waiting as the hours pass them by
growing weak and weary until one by one they die

Is the time right
To find a new religion
Under the ground
Way down below

Into the light
Forget your superstition
Follow us down
Oh down below.

Oh he wonders
how much there is to know
and how long it will it take him
To learn it as he goes

(Verse)
Autumn leaves lay down and die
At the winters beck and call

Seven sisters sobbing by the shore
Longing for their lost loves, whose ships sail no more
Waiting as the hours pass them by
Growing weak and weary until one by one they die
 
8. "Hawks and serpents" lyrics

They?re coming for us in the dead of night
They won?t ignore us
Prepare to fight
We knew this day would come
Blackened souls fed by fear and hatred
Come to defile that which we hold sacred
It?s them or us
That?s all they know

From the darkness the roar of engines
They ask no quarter, none shall be given
They come to claim all that you own
Hear the sound, see the lights in the distance
It?s coming down ? the battle for existence
Show no mercy
They?ll take all they can

Set aside your peaceful ways
Prepare for war
Melt down your ploughshares
And take up swords
We will see the flesh laid low
The bodies fall
The Most High that none may know
Watches us all

They?re coming for us in the dead of night
They won?t ignore us
Prepare to fight
They come to kill
That?s all they know

Set aside your peaceful ways
Prepare for war
Melt down your ploughshares
And take up your swords
We will see the flesh laid low
The bodies fall
The Most High that none ma know
Watches us all
 
9. "Eyes of the stormwitch" lyrics

Summoning spirits of dread
Before an altar of sacred fire
She sings the hymns of the dead
Glorifying her holy sire

A goddess in human form
Dark hair crowned with a glowing nimbus
She has the eyes of the storm
Like the sea in a raging tempest

So strikes the queen of the air
Like a blow from a titan's hammer
Let mortal women beware
For none can match her unearthly glamour
 
10. "Apocryphon" lyrics

Set adrift in the multiverse
By the whims of fate
And thrall to the demiurge
We all await escape

Darkness and light entwine
Everything is all the time
All around you points align
Everything is all the time

From beyond the waveform
Reaching the wall
Giving birth to a universe
Mother of all

Living information
Transverging space time
Flowing down from the overworld
Into the mind of mankind

Darkness and light entwine
Everything is all the time
All around you points align
Everything is all the time

You want to live for eternity
To see behind the veil
Everything comes around again
The serpent eats its tail
