Cult Of Luna - Salvation

Artist: Cult Of Luna
Release: Salvation


1. Echoes

Empty men without regrets
Leaning against each others’ shoulders
Open spaces fill the gap
Where reason reigned and fell

And I see vapour coming out
Of every crack in the framework
Caught in a vortex between false
Perceptions and reality forever

Dead frequencies kill the intellect
And truths that only raindrops see
Frail bodies out in the periphery
Walk like ghosts across the screen
It begins again

2. Vague Illusions

Awoke in a fever, a feeling that’s never been here before
Staring at these walls, knowing you’re right outside the door
See through me, point your words and make me shiver
This time I know we will go down trying to reconcile

Waiting here for you to save me
Stranded here with my vague illusions and broken dreams
One more time around so degraded
Running in circles, these days of endless guilt

There were reasons
There were moments
Reach to me and lead me astray

As the night breathes out the harsh and cold morning
A smoke screen has surrounded the funeral mourners
They march in the wake of broken promises
This time they know we all fall into the rhythm so slow

3. Leave Me Here

Out of a secret longing
They know their way from here
Out of a growing dream
They follow the road we create

I see what I’ve cut behind me
Lost on the bottom you often found me there
False conscience is beyond me
Lost in the backwoods, I lie open to you here
Just leave me here

These men are running hard
But you keep down your voices
Living only to judge heavy
All mysteries aside there was a truth outside

Leave me here and I’m born again
Leave me here in this void again
Now I am open left for dead
Just like salvation comes in the end

4. Waiting For You

I am praying for the raging flood
I am waiting for you to come

5. Adrift

In his arms, locked in that iron grip nothing will reveal
Follow these footsteps and we will reach the bottom

I tumbled down the road that bears his name
Here he dwells, here he prospers and pushes us towards the end

When we are drifting against the tide
Colliding with the very air we breathe
Somewhere the tracks inwards must lead out
A grasp of hope that defeats the will

Always pushed away
Always nothing

6. White Cell

Where is the rain that purifies and retaliates?
Where is the one I begged for strength to carry on?
Speak to me, I have followed through
Deliver me from guilt
Take me home

To the source of white light I offer my place
My sacrifice for its life
The guilt that stains me vanishes on the other side

Where is the rain that purifies and retaliates?
Where is the one I begged for strength to carry on?
Walking along the river’s flow
A journey away from original sin

You and I merge, we become one

7. Crossing Over

Traces in snow
A red line grows through and leads me below
Nothing on this side ties me

One step, one glimpse of an eye
One moment can change everything
Wait here ’til my words spread across the sky
And into the chambers of every soul

8. Into The Beyond

Let me take you down, underneath this false surface
Tonight is the night when we travel into the heart of the unknown
Night reveals what is hidden in the shadows
What you see is just a shell of me

To escape the suffering, we keep our emotions at a distance
So far away that our skin becomes our fortress
Leave with me and you’ll see what lies ahead
Let’s gather in twilight
In those blue reflections

We are coming out as one
That is when we arrive
That is when we realise
This is when we fall down
