about

Dream | Oblivion is a story about a futile search for inner peace in a corrupted world. Each song reflects a new state of mind that begins in bleak enlightenment, followed by misery, a quest for solace, and finally, a fall into the pits of despair. Dream | Oblivion is an awakening that ends in the return to the conforting arms of death... our Goddess Eternal.

Redeem code

Track Name: II. Dawn Of A New Era
I rise in redemption, followed by these thoughts so vile
Defying all I’ve known in lifelong solace and denial
Fists risen in anger, howling songs towards the moon
Free me from these shackles, for with reason I’ll commune

Souls gone astray envision catastrophe
Scenery set for our loss of identity

Truth shattered by lies uncovered, shining through
This judgment oh, so dire
Guiding us through hellfire

Pain that tortures me, yet I long to see
Better days slither through sorrow
Devour the hollow

Endless nightmare
Haunting my deathbed
Dreams of despair
Take my life instead

All your prayers
Reek of unconcern
Save your tears
Hypocrites shall burn

Lost in shadows
Oblivion
Cry, undelivered
Unrepentant

Souls gone astray envision catastrophe
Scenery set for our loss of identity
Track Name: III. Goddess Eternal
I surrender in seraphic bliss
Reminiscing in all I left behind
Writhing in the emptiness
A sea of sorrow in a land of sighs

Fading lights, this heart they bathe
Weary eyes, shut, break the chains
Align the stars for a final bow
Unending fear of thoughts profane

A life born from despair
Bleeding such thoughts and dreams impaired

My Goddess Eternal

Hail the twilight, bless the moon
Forever damned, the work of art
Of carving dreams in the tree of life
While betraying the ways of the heart

Fading lights, such sweet embrace
Move me closer to Her call
Rip the flesh that taints the will
For I'm to numb to care at all

Shield me from despair
Believing such thoughts and dreams impaired

Take this life
My shame
My strife

This hatred I feed within my veins
Enlightens the embers from the charred coal of
Your embrace, so cold in my arms, tonight

So bow down
To my mistress
In Death
Track Name: V. Genesis 3.5
Serpent deity, goddess of Vision
Eternal temptress of enlightenment
Come to us, in eternal wisdom
Truth being thy only commandment

Forbidden fruit
Open the eyes of the blind
Soil thyself
Upon the filth our kind

Dawn awakes thee to life
So arise, coming undone
And look down, with shame
To the evil that has been done

By the light that fades
From within, for what we've become
Take hold of my hand
Witness the chaos we condone

Under thy shade
Tree Of Wisdom
Witness the lies
Of Heaven's sons

Dawn awakes thee to life
So arise, coming undone
And look down, with shame
To the evil that has been done

By the light that fades
From within, for what we've become
Take hold of my hand
Witness the chaos we condone

Paint the skies in grey

We shall not fall, for we are the chosen legacy
The blessed, destined to ride the Beast with our wrath
In time, all the world’s blindfolds shall wither
Raise thy fists, to walk the path of the Libra

Liars, sinners, traitors
Wallow in shame
Liars, sinners, traitors
You're all to blame

Crucified, dead inside
Torn apart, I’ve denied

All that I am, you'll never be
Cradled by the arms of disonesty
Wallow in shame, we’re all to blame
Call upon your saints to abide you
From all the evil that you’ve done
In the course of your life
Track Name: VI. Fall To Oblivion
Death comes down

Disease holding hands with death
As paranoia suffocates us
War shreds all within its path
Enthroned hatred originates

Bodies paving ruined streets
Drowning in a grave of lies
Rising towards impending doom
Chorused by children's cries

Can someone tell me where to look
Amidst this madness
A world surrendered to the void
Engulfed by wings, oh so black

As I decay
Absent solace
From a world
So devious

As blood spills on these pages
Imprisoning ghosts inside my head
Holding on by a single thread
I weep for the songs of old

The passing of the ages
Weighs the cross I have to bear
For these fears have me ensnared
Trapped inside a life so cold

Violence dictates a world
Of souls living in vain
Madness takes its toll
For all the hope that has been slain

I decay
Destined countdown
Shrouded in anguish
Absent forgiveness

Can someone tell me where to look
Amidst this madness
A world surrendered to the void
Engulfed by wings, oh so black

And so I feel
Within my core
Death is alive
For evermore
