Fleshgod Apocalypse - Absinthe Lyrics



[Sailor:]
A sea to sail alone
This glass of Fée Verte and nothing else
My one way journey into the storm
Surpassing the Pillars of Hercules

[Sailor:]
And I can’t go back anymore
[Absinthe:]
I’m gonna hold you tight
[Sailor:]
I have no choice, I can’t return
[Absinthe:]
So do I

[Absinthe:]
En route towards the dawn
Forever, together
Green is the pain, green is the drug
We melt like sugar

[Sailor:]
Come whisper words of love
Inebriate my soul again
«Emerald nectar, let me be mad!»
As Charon’s taking my hand

[Sailor:]
The compass points to hell
[Absinthe:]
I will stand by your side
[Sailor:]
I spin in the spiral of distress
[Absinthe:]
Come drink the night
[Sailor:]
Can hear the sound of death-knell
[Absinthe:]
Gently harmonizes your cry
[Sailor:]
Life is a sip, I guzzled it all
[Absinthe:]
So time has come to die

[Absinthe:]
Doomed is your existence
Superfluous living thing
To dissolution you belong
Hydrate your withered «I» with Artemisia’s tears
Wollow in self-pity all along
Seek for excuses to justify the fault
Distill the memories to mystify the truth

[Absinthe:]
Dearth of willpower
Hiatus of inner strength
Offense to the entire human race
Pure blood abortion of a long line of undead
Expression of mother nature shame
The arms of Morpheus are cradling your soul
Diluting torments in the night
And Dionysus is singing loud your requiem
A wordless threnody for the weak one

[Absinthe:]
I
[Sailor:]
We went to far astray
[Absinthe:]
Absinthe
[Sailor:]
To seek an inner grace
[Absinthe:]
Torment
[Sailor:]
But what we found was pain
[Absinthe:]
And delight
[Sailor:]
And sorrow

[Absinthe:]
I am the cleansing flame
[Sailor:]
Muse of the poets and painters
[Absinthe:]
What I create I can erase
[Sailor:]
For god’s sake!
[Absinthe:]
Nightmare of parisian nights
[Sailor:]
Why did you do this to me?
[Absinthe:]
To kiss the moon this is the price
[Sailor:]
I should never let the sun in

[Absinthe:]
En route towards the dawn
Forever, together
Green is the pain, green is the drug
As I’m your only god
