Shroud of Bereavement's music is akin to attending a funeral for everyone you have ever loved. The Boston-based group
achieves this moribund feeling by incorporating all the right musical elements: cellos, piano, violin, and dual female vocal harmonies layered on top of harsh death vocals, played at the pace of mile-long funeral procession.....more
wandering soul, my spirit broken
like frail bones, no moonlight shines
dark velvet skies descend apon me now
no strength to fight. all alone
give me, the courage to fail
to live without love, and die without hope
its so lonely here at the end of my world
This gloam brings no releif, biding my time.
I lament my defeat, and the wind whispers softly
in my ear, all life must cease, surrender your fear
As I sift through the ash, in silence this day
Mortaly drained I wither and frey
Give me the courage to die, to leave all I've loved behind
let all that i've lived be as a dream
give me the courage to die, let all I've lived be as a dream
Take me down
My heart is heavy with sin
Devour my pain
I rot within my skin
a king without his crown
take me down
Sleep be of your dreams, sleep while we mourn
fall, fall to your knees, pray for the dawn
We are here, biding time, all life must cease
Condemned to eternal, seasons of grey
I sift through the ashes in silence this day
forgotten by time and all mortal thought
A glutton for hope and a price I must pay
I sift through the ashes in silence this day, this day, of grey, this day
The pain of life, is not worth living
When I fall unto the night, the dirt will sing to me, its sweet lulliby
Gasping my last breath, I'm silenced by the chill, that stills my flesh
so I die.

An Unfamiliar Embrace 2000/2010
(Music Robinson Lyrics Robinson/Faith)
Stranded.... amongst this crashing reef.
Distance seperates. An unfamiliar embrace,
haunting...longing only for you
Ive dreampt a thousand dreams, but I sleep a dreamless sleep
longing for you, bleeding for you
I dreampt of you again, you've toutched my face
These tears I cry, belong to you.
These tears I shed now belong only to you,
and ohh how I suffer on without your touch.
I am but a ghost in shared space,
a crack apon your window pane.
I cannot fall into this saddness... So I'll set you free
My body aches .... with longing
An unquentchable hurt Ive felt like no other.
Sing with me love, under the night skies.
Let your soul walk with me....
Gazing at startlight I still see you there.
Sleepless nights lost in dreams.
Is this how you've left me?
why why? tell me.....
laughing, cold misery
Ohh, tell me...
My body bleeds, I'm yearning
An unquentchable pain We've had like no other
