In this sea remain All of my tears I touched the instant of another life I am changing A moon seems to restore my hollow mask Is it a blessing? (So many faces…) I’m hiding in the dunes of many dreams My memories are dust She tried to make me forget everything But I know this night I’ve seen the twilight of another season I remember So I see her now I see her now I see her In the pictures of my sorrow Colliding with a past I can’t recall I do know this night The structure of the walls, the whispers of my fear Her home in every mirror So I see her now I see her now I see her Through the curtains of my sorrow Fall the leaves Fall, fall, fall the leaves Fall the ages Fall, fall, fall again I’m awake... Fall the leaves Fall, fall, fall the leaves But the dream remains Fall the ages Fall, fall, fall again My darkest sister, rise!

Across those empty fields Rest the prospect of the lost I drowned so long ago In the river of my wounds A web of rotten years Total eclipse of my soul I will be away On the day of your coming Oh stranger tell me why I must leave this shelter now I have waited many lives In this castle of time Hollow smiles beyond these clouds I must keep my images of you Give me my final hours It’s the season of mists The wake has come again There is no reality I will always be adrift In my little web of time But I’m lost in dreams And I know I must go away I will pass through this shattered night And leave the fabric of time Nowhere will you find me out there All these years are meaningless Forever lying in the dust or stay I must go away I must go away And leave this shelter of the soul And lose my memories of love I must go away I must go away There’s a dream in the fabric of time A tear in the fabric of time Wandering outside of time, forgotten Wandering outside of time, it’s so dark A tear in the fabric of time A tear in the fabric of life

Like in a dream She can feel all their kisses Again and again The taste of their lust The smell of their fear She can feel all their pain The will of the fallen Under the world She is sleeping for us Behind the glass So alone in her cave Like in a dream She wishes she could leave Just to hold them again Oh winter of life Take her right in your arms Like a rift in a doll’s house Another nightmare Do you remember us? The shadows of fall We will bless the night When you will rise A moment of silence, some pictures of despair The dawn of the black moon Do you remember us? The shadows of time You remember the sorrow Your reflections The tears on your mirror Do you remember us? The children of fall Do you remember us? The children of death

Deep down in these woods The shadows of the exiles are returning Watching the night They’re moving behind the mist of trees Tell me where I should lie Tell me why the sky is fading away Deep down in these woods They feed on emotions, on reflections Whispering for the moon They’re dancing in the graves of my sleep Tell me where I should die Tell me why the sun is fading away They will take my soul to her Through the looking glass they will come Tell me why the world is fading away And reality is breaking apart In the mirror There are shadows In the mirror There are shadows Underneath the surface of winds Traveling in-between the dreams Tell me why the world is fading away And the storm is starting anew No more tears for the future Into the abyss we fall Like a flower into the empty skies Like a thought into the ashes of flesh The sound of felicity Becoming the chant of murder Tell me why my cries are fading away And the storm is starting anew Tell me why I’m fading away Tell me why the shadows cry Tell me why I’m fading away Tell me why the shadows cry
7.
She sleeps among the cracks of time As we stand inside her shadow dwelling Falling down like a rain of mirrors The ghosts of insane children I stand alone among the oceans The others remain still (like painted skies) Floating through the tapestry Of her wails, of her pain And she’s dreaming… Dreaming inside her cave Dreaming inside her cave She falls between those broken seasons She’s alone in her cell No one’s listening, no one’s real It’s so cold in here And she’s dreaming… Dreaming inside her cave Dreaming inside her cave And deep inside this corridor Another shape of things to come We will fade like memories But she will stay, forgotten one Forever dreaming! Rise, the sleepers from her cave Rise, the sleepers from her cave
8.
Quietly she closes her eyes As she dresses with the winter’s veil Her dreams are rising from the cold Shaping the faces of the earth Like the snow she falls on my skin Melting and crying Suddenly she sends her tears away As she awakes from the winter’s mist Her fear is rising from the ice Lying in a bed of dead roses She’s the shadow of my mirror’s clock Screaming like the wind Beneath the moon, she dances in the haze As she looses herself in this storm Her name remains in our dreams Witness the eternal nest of time Melting and dying Again and again the echoes fall Again and again the echoes fall Again and again the echoes fall Watching our fate Again and again the angels fall Again and again the angels fall Again and again the angels fall Watching our fate
9.
In the river of the fallen An obscuration of dreams Dusty pictures in the bedroom Did we leave the mirror broken? To form a prison, we live Even my screams must be fed Into the river of mists A transformation of dreams The innocence of my tears How can I drown with the leaves? No more tears for the future And the banshees are wailing again No more tears for the future And the storm is starting anew
10.
Curtains hide the rainbow’s eyes As we walk through melancholy There’s nothing left but ruins in here I ‘m a relic… A book of lies covered in sand I’m aware of your return I have found so many trails Oh weep for us… And I stand in front of life In this cage dreaming of light I drift between sinking moments In a realm of desolation And I scream inside of you My last window off this world Then I drift again Like a dead leaf in the wind…

about

www.skeletontrees.com

"For a first release, the amount of effort that went into Season of Mists is fairly surprising. Skeleton Trees went to great lengths to produce a work that is intricate as it is layered, as well as giving the album a very polished presentation with its artwork and packaging. My guess is we’ll be hearing plenty more from this band in the years to come."

- Brian Backlash (BrianBacklash) from Regen Magazine


"Some will say it’s boring, whereas others will be blinded by its beauty. Such things do depend on your taste. But still, we can definitely assure you that this fine self released album containing ten songs will be loved by anyone who’s into quality ethereal darkwave."

- Didier BECU from Peek-A-Boo Magazine


"Season of Mists, Skeleton Trees’ debut effort, is a hauntingly beautiful venture into dreamland."

- Barton Graham from Chain D.L.K
