Never darker than today, I take your hand, you wipe it away Never colder than tonight, I lie awake and hear myself sigh For the tortures of life, after all beauties inside Never further away from you, never as lonely as without you Too tired to feel, too sad to be real Too weak for the pain you left with me Too empty to be, too shattered to flee As you break down without me Still you feel the breeze and you freeze as I haunt you by night, unseen by your eyes Personified twin of all beautiful sins, three times 6 with a heart yet transfixed My breath a caress of Death on your chest /Your breath a caress of Death on my chest I take your mind to a fathomless depth /You take my mind to a fathomless depth That’s why in shadows I hide as I spy you asleep /That’s why in shadows you hide as you spy me asleep Curled within dreams so dark, so sweet /Curled within dreams so dark You plant the rose, you sought the seeds Of the thorns that make my heart bleed You raised this life, you let it grow And now you harvest the sorrow Too long watered with blood, my throat is choking by mud Venomous soil spreads within The blossom of love is withering Too tired to feel, too sad to be real Too weak for the pain you left with me Too empty to be, too shattered to flee As you break down without me Still you feel the breeze and you freeze as I haunt you by night, unseen by your eyes Personified twin of all beautiful sins, three times 6 – 6 6 6 My breath a caress of Death on your chest /Your breath a caress of Death on my chest I take your mind to a fathomless depth /You take my mind to a fathomless depth That’s why in shadows I hide as I spy you asleep /That’s why in shadows you hide as you spy me asleep Curled within dreams so dark, so sweet

Beloved cold winter, take my warm heart Beloved cold winter, take my warm heart Into your icy hands Into your grasp Color this world into all shades of grey Make the ground shine even through the darkest of the night This frozen lake in the shape of our love Remains as a gift of a fragile lust And of all that’s lost Of all that’s lost In this long dark winter, let me warm your soul In this land forlorn, let me save you from the cold In this long dark winter, let me hold you tight In this land of ice, let me guide you through the night In this cold winter night Heat my heart with love In this land of ice Hold me, hold me tight Old grey sky let those snowflakes slowly fly Cover grass, trees, hills and the empty countryside with your pride This frozen lake in the shape of a cross Stains a graveyard of love lost But a new yet to begin In this long dark winter, let me warm your soul In this land forlorn, let me save you from the cold In this long dark winter, let me hold you tight In this land of ice, let me guide you through the night In this cold winter night Heat my heart with love In this land of ice Hold me, hold me tight I sense her near… And I watch you, wondering, how you disappeared right out of my dreams Into this dismal life, into this night And I take you by my side, let stars shine through my eyes Hold you close, share your breath, melt in you, join your caress In this land of ice In this cold winter night, hold me tight Till we both fly

The sun sets in your heart and the moon shines through at last The inheritance of love remains as scars carved deep into my arms A momentous desire, a temporary fire, slowly set to die And to extinguish as day turns to night Welcome back sweet tears, remember me being here, bleeding like before Love lies buried beside me after all Embraced by raging flames, the tortures that still remain Shiver through my bones and what once bled truly turned to stone Cold as winters heart My skin and tears now are As soul and shell do part Floating right into the lights above Two hearts in love combined Life and die in time See their soul in silence pass And becoming stars

All I saw was a scene of a desperate life And pity told my heart to brake All I felt was a pain I will always retain And the scars will forever remain She was young and yet so dead And her eyes spoke al language of grief Left by God and the cross around her neck Stained a symbol of unfulfilled dreams All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins All the sadness dies in her hands All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins All the sadness dies in her hands She left yet bereft of a physical death To a place where her tortures will be healed She knows where she goes she won’t be alone And no one will miss her or mourn Dry your tears little victim of life Clean your face, wash away every trace Walk right into the black shining light And leave to a never known place All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins All the sadness dies in her hands All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins All the sadness dies in her hands All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins All the sadness dies in her hands All the sadness of the world flows through her empty veins All the sadness dies in her hands

So cold is this night And I lay in your arms, feeling safety from harms Hold, hold me tight And I stay here with you through the passage of time Inside your eyes my eyes reflect And present all fears I once possessed Memories of tortures lay to rest And all the tears I might have shed So dark is this night And the moon in the sky shimmers on the earth white As ice and stars, in the lake they dance With fireflies in their glance The great divine and godlike shine upon your eyes and mine The elder scars that all have passed into the winters freezing grasp And I feel you so you do me, it’s not just a creation of fantasy I hear my heart and I sense yours, beating in lovely unity So cold is this night So dark is this night Inside your eyes my eyes reflect And present all fears I once possessed Memories of tortures lay to rest And all the tears I might have shed The great divine and godlike shine upon your eyes and mine The elder scars that all have passed into the winters freezing grasp And I feel you so you do me, it’s not just a creation of fantasy I hear my heart and I sense yours, beating in lovely unity Gone are the tears I might have shed

As I wander through this damn icy cold My thoughts travel beyond my flesh I feel you, I smell you, I want you so close to me My soul cries for you in grief And I see you in the distance and I feel that you notice me The closer you get, I realize I’ll be dead The cold winds starts blowing and my mortal flesh starts dying The day covered by the wings that this icy night spreads In this cold winter night would you dare to hold me In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast In this cold winter night I grant you my life As frost spreads it’s might, don’t let me, don’t let me die As I wander with you by my side My emotions on fire and I I hold you, I kiss you, I want you to marry me My heart cries for you in grief And all flowers that once blossomed now covered by snow The longer we walk the colder it grows A cold winds stars blowing and I feel that I’m dying The rivers stand still as my blood that once flowed In this cold winter night would you dare to hold me In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast In this cold winter night I grant you my life As frost spreads it’s might, don’t let me, don’t let me die I need you, for all my life exists because of you If you die, my soul will die with you Please hold on to the light, which keeps our love burning bright Don’t leave me back in this darkness I resign, close my eyes, let me slip away and die Blue is my flesh as I take my last breath My wounds stopped to bleed and my veins stopped to feed My heart that once beat just for you In this cold winter night would you dare to hold me In the warmth of your arms, to protect the beast In this cold winter night I grant you my life As frost spreads it’s might, please let me, I die

The moon breaks through the sky And the earth becomes a virgin dressed in white Embraced by trees that reach their arms into her heart And hold me tight, covered by night The stars shine down on me And alight my spirit for eternity I lay to rest under a long forgotten host The eye of God, in peace I rot

about

After the (for me) disappointing Tender Breath, Sculptured Angels became a peak of my creativity. With Julia we found our female voice, Phantom of the Opera inspired lyrics but bad recordings. Thank you Behringer V-Amp Pro.

This demo was recorded by:
Andreas P. (guitars/orchestration/additional vocals),
Andrew B. (bass),
Michael P. (vocals)
Julia B. (vocals)

about

Shadegrown Germany

Shadegrown, named after a song of the 1996 Sentenced Album Down, started in the late 90s as a one man band project.
With each demo new people joined the band. After 2015 it basically became a one man band again.
Currently I am working on rerecordings of the first four demos. Unreleased stuff from 2016 also exists. After that new material will follow!
