Song Lyrics Thy Serpent

Thy Serpent – Only Dust Moves

Distress has found a dwelling place in me, already pale as death but still I bleed

~ Remember Kids, Sharing is Caring ~
Thy Serpent is a Finnish black metal band from Espoo. It started out as a solo project by Sami Tenetz in 1992. A full lineup was acquired in 1995.

Distress has found a dwelling place in me
Already pale as death but still I bleed
For promises have shown their fragility
Spare me your affection and pity

The world no longer is a joyful dream
But a crystal with darksome gleam
About to fall
Soon be shattered
One shard for every emotion dead
I will rather learn to enjoy misery
Than partake a life of hypocrisy

Here I sit by the slowly dying candlelight
So I will sink with the shadows by my side
I flew with wings of the dragonfly ;
Came down as the rain poured out of the sky
And storm winds howled over the land
Snow covered the trees and ice the sand

No illusions remain
Silence conquers us all
Solitude the only reality

Only dust moves, set in motion aeons ago
When there was still life in this world


Sadly, I’m not aware of a live version – So at this time no Live for this track. Instead, here’s a nice little bit of “nice to know”:

Nightwish’s first single “The Carpenter” was released with two songs by other Finnish artists, this song by Thy Serpent was it’s 3rd track, the 2nd was “Red Light In My Eyes, Part II” by Children Of Bodom.
