The varied perspectives of extreme metal

The varied perspectives of extreme metal

"At The Gates"

It is cold out here
and lonely is my journey
I walk the trail of broken souls
the darkest path through infinity
Far behind my body rot
For me no more tomorrow
Fear or pain I know not
and yet I am filled with sorrow
I am at the gates
Lord of chaos
Let me sleep
Space is deep
Lord of chaos...
Through the gates the journey goes on
The fate of my immortal soul
Through the gates the journey goes on and on...
All I crave is to sleep
All I crave is to sleep
Across the seas without no name
The weak spot of the creation
My crown of thorns
All life it drains
As the scars back of my mind
But at the side of my lake
Insanity wait for me to find
I am all as I am you and me
I am everything and will forever be
a part of you throughout eternity
When you die you too will be
Heaven waits below as you will see
I am at the the gates but where are the keys
All I crave is to sleep
All I crave is to sleep
Lord of chaos...


"Key To The Gate"

My eyes are shut I cannot see
though clear is thy despair
I drift away - far away
from places of which you seek

Though I seek thy hell
you close the gate before me
Your life is right, and I'm to
follow to your paradise

I cannot fall in love
love is for them
Lusting for the sky -
Heaven

Why did I come to this world
of sorrow why is this true
Where is my dagger of sacrifice

I will open the gates to Hell one day...

Yeah -- it's not unified by anything at all except aesthetic, which may actually be a better form of unity. However, it needs people who can explain this aesthetic and how it translates to reality.

"At the end of the gate I wont stop but spread my wings
As dark winds fade away no one knows where I am gone"


the gate represents a subconscious struggle to overcome finite reality and envision dreams as the real movers of man's course in the world.
