Trail of Tears

Trail of Tears is a Norwegian gothic/symphonic black metal band originally formed in 1994 by vocalist Ronny Thorsen, under the name of Natt. Through most of their career the band emphasised the use of contrasting soprano and death grunt vocals, except for the release of Free Fall into Fear in 2005, in which the band switched this contrast mostly to tenor and growls, with less frequent soprano passages. more »

High on destruction 
She enters the room 
And watches with merciless eyes 
And strikes med with sheer desperation 
I empty my glass filled with flames 
And she takes me away 
Drags me towards mirrors so cold 
I dive to the depths of convolution 
Tearful I stand as she smiles 
At the sight of my rivers 
That run down my wrists 

I stare towards the endless depths 
Of my own self 
Of my downfall 
Downfall 

Cursed be your name! 
Cursed be your madness! 
Deceiver and murderer of hope 
In venomous intoxication I felt 
The punishing strength of the rope 
As you strangled by faith 
Shred it to pieces 
And left me to bury my pride 
Shameful I hide 
You left me to drown 
In senseless oblivion 

I stare towards the endless depths 
Of my own self 
Of my downfall 
Downfall 

As the curtain falls 
I fall down with it 
To the endless depths 
Of my downfall 

Drown me 
In the flood from my wrists
