1.
Auxilium 01:39
Where are you? I can’t find you Are you even real? I feel so alone I need your help Why did you leave me? Why did you leave me? Why did you leave me?
2.
What the hell did I do? I’m confused without a clue Walking down the crimson lane With blood dripping from my brain For god’s sake listen to me For god’s sake listen to me For god’s sake listen to me To me, to me For god’s sake listen to me (x2) (please stay… stay with me) I can’t punch the numbers in My fingers start to bend Every time I try to call My hands start to drag the wall For god’s sake listen to me For god’s sake listen to me For god’s sake listen to me To me, to me For god’s sake listen to me (x2) Come on, pick up the phone I’m too alone, alone, I’m lonely (x4) I’m too alone I’m too alone Go on (x4) Without me Go on (x4) Without me Please For the love of god Don’t let go Never Please don’t let me go
3.
The Abyss 04:24
Ooh I can taste it Right at the tip of my tongue Through the blood-soaked lips Now the water’s filling my lungs Taking flight ‘Cause you’re mine Losing sight I’m so blind Damn I’m getting heavy My body starts to swell Ouch like a scratch to the cheek I know this feeling all too well Taking flight ‘Cause you’re mine Losing sight For the last time I’m so blind Taking flight ‘Cause you’re mine Losing sight I’m so blind Have I lost my mind? (I’m so blind) Have I lost my mind? (I’m so blind) Have I lost my mind? (I’m so blind) Have I lost my mind? (I’m so blind) I’m so blind
4.
Purgatorium 01:17
5.
Blamed for the spell Burned for her craft Waves start to swell Moon throws a cast Shadows come to me Deep in the night But I can’t ever sleep ‘Cause I’m broken by fright But I’m searching again And I’m reaching for life The sun starts to bleed Someone is behind me The sky is burning down My chest starts to pound The sun starts to bleed Someone is behind me The sky is burning down The curse is broken My chest starts to pound

Buried Alive 03:52
The light has come to take me (I think that I’m floating) Don’t know where I’m going or what I’ll see (The darkness is growing) I can’t complain My time is done I’ve done the best that I can But death has won What has happened? Why can’t I find my wings? Why does it feel so wrong? With your tears on my face I think I’m losing faith Please don’t be sad or hate me (I can’t keep holding) It’s so damn cold I can’t breathe (I feel like I’m choking) I won’t complain Even though it’s tough But these wounds will heal When I look from above What has happened? Why can’t I find my wings? Why does it feel so wrong? With your tears on my face I think I’m losing grip Of what helps me survive If these are my last words I think I’m buried alive I’m being buried alive
8.
The crystal halls Holding the golden white crest The chandelier falls Crashing into your chest I thought I heard you speak I thought I heard you cry I must be mistaken I thought I felt your words I thought I saw you try I must be mistaken I swear I saw you smile A black bullet spins Into empty flesh and bones Watching the ceiling break My heart feels so alone I thought I heard you speak I thought I heard you cry I must be mistaken I thought I felt your words I thought I saw you try I must be mistaken I swear I saw you smile I swear I saw you smile I swear I saw you smile
9.
Is this my last chance to say goodbye? Is this my last chance to say hello? Whatever the case may be Your secret is safe with me I am ice cold I’m keeping my eyes closed Touching your pale white skin It feels like such a sin Back when I wanted it all True love slowly fades Whichever way you choose Don’t let it confuse you I am ice cold I’m keeping my eyes closed Touching your pale white skin It feels like such a sin All I see is lonely memories Of what we used to be Back when you loved me All I see is lonely memories Of when we used to bleed Begging for mercy But now I’m ice cold You said you wanted a truce But I felt so used You decided to stop me From my blasphemy I am ice cold I am ice cold I’m keeping my eyes closed Touching your pale white skin It feels like such a sin All I see is lonely memories Of what we used to be Back when you loved me All I see is lonely memories Of when we used to bleed Begging for mercy But now I’m ice cold All I see All I feel All I see is these lonely memories I am ice cold (x4) Am ice cold
10.
Web of Guilt 04:14
It’s the fight Of your life But you can’t Take anything too hard So run As fast as you can Take my hand Let me show you the way And another taste Of your obsession The lights Will lead the way A frozen path Where the night turns to grey And the colors decay What can I say? I’m your obsession Don’t be scared my love I’m right here by your side Preparing you for the endless night A place That I call home Knives touching your face Making you feel warm So let’s try To rearrange The spiderwebs are hanging from your brain Can you talk? Can you see? Just blink twice Let me know that you can breathe Don’t be scared my love I’m right here by your side Preparing you for the endless night Can you talk? Can you see? Just blink twice Let me know that you can breathe Im so scared my love Please don’t leave my side Preparing us for the endless night
11.
The sun is down I’m yours to keep Now’s your chance The hole runs deep So not too fast Go ahead and take me And let’s dance The night away Until the break of day The frosted grounds Are ours to keep Wake me up Eternal sleep Let’s make it last Go ahead and take me And let’s dance The night away Until the break of day Can you see I’m closing the door To our dreams So take it from me I’m a broken man And not what I seem It’s falling from the heavens above I can’t speak I’m already hung I fell too fast Back in love And when the sun wakes We lose our sight It’s meant to be Timid moonlights Can you see? I’m closing the door To our dreams So take it from me I’m a broken man And not what I seem It’s falling from the heavens above It’s what you’ve done for me I know it’s hard But it’s what we need It’s falling from the heaven’s above
12.
The Burning 04:33
Watching the flames reflection in your eyes Wondering what life will be when I sacrifice Myself For everything that we stand for For everything that we’ve done before For everything that keeps us sane and us here Praying For the rain (x4) Out of the ashes I will find our lies My blackened body will begin to rise To you For everything that we stand for For everything that we’ve done before For everything that keeps us sane and us here Praying For the rain (x4) Everything is falling apart (For the rain) I’m laying here with a broken heart Begging For the rain
13.
Eyes made of diamonds A smile that never ends I fell madly in love I fell madly in love A head full of heartache But you took it away When I fell in love When I fell in love With you Love blind and sinking the line for two Like you fell from a book That fairytale look I knew You’re my personal queen A goddess to me I do Throw that potion on me Until I believe in you A life made for kings How could I ever deserve this? Saw it come from above My dark angel of love Your hands started to shake When I touched your face Then I fell madly in love Then I fell madly in love With you Love blind and sinking the line for two Like you fell from a book That fairytale look I knew You’re my personal queen A goddess to me I do Throw that potion on me Until I believe in you ‘til I believe in you Until I believe in you ‘til I believe in you ‘til I believe in you
14.
The stars take over And consume my flesh My body is failing And I feel so possessed From the ashes I was born And to ashes I confess From the pocket that’s torn Comes the posies of death Your time has come The sun is burning out So find your place in the sun Are you here for me? Father help me They won’t let me back in Father save me From all of my sins My skin turns black And my eyes turn red Can’t even tell if I’m living Or if I’m dead Your time has come The sun is burning out So find your place in the sun Are you here for me? Are you here for me? Your time has come The sun is burning out So find your place in the sun Are you here for me? (x2)

The Departed 01:59

about

One of the most exciting and creative acts on the gothic/post-punk
scene, Crying Vessel, bravely gaze into “The Abyss” with the release of their new single from their sophomore album, Pleasures For The Wicked. “The Abyss” showcases the melodic and dark romantic side of the new album, the band’s first for their new label, L.A.-based Cleopatra Records, which release the album August 14

Pleasures For The Wicked is a concept album built around being stuck between life and death, in a dark home of secrets and regrets. The songs are sometimes seamless, and tie into one another to tell a story. In the cover image, each element has its purpose, embracing symbolism like paintings of the renaissance era.
