We Embraced the cold shrouded by dawn The morning frost Wind on our faces Through time we travelled We embraced the cold Towards the light we struggled And from despair we ran We embraced the cold And opened our eyes It only held death for us We'd been deceived- From despair we ran Towards the light we struggled Sinking slowly into a cold white sea (Lyrics by James Benson)
2.
Dust is crushed mountains and the ashes of everything that ever existed. Specs of life dissolving into a void which we cannot know. Dust has covered the planets and the moons' gleam is reflected upon it For we all are dust of the Earth Time is fleeting, awaiting a dreaming state and promise of after life
3.
Burned and consumed, like ashen memories Pale and undone, distant seems the world Like freezing arctic wind, the blade of loss cuts through To find myself again, I cannot comprehend To walk this road, the path of desolation Far from the sun, cold isolation Abandoned here, in silent apathy By all those, once so endeared To understand, I must become the fear To prevail, I must become the enemy To reclaim dominion, surrender to defeat To rise to elation, I must fall into despair Crushed by the weight of an impending failure I endeavor in vain toward the fading sun Paralyzed in this aphotic void My strength it is lost, in the absence of light Before my eyes, as if frozen in time The rise and fall of everything once defined To acquiesce to the arms of negation Denial at once my comfort and my shame The dark that once seemed so false, so distant Now engulfs every aspect of my sight The understanding lies entwined with all I fear I am the enemy, I am the light Accept that forever, is a mere perception Relative to our own minds Every moment elapsed is an eternity In the shadow of our fleeting time Those once beloved, will fade to dust Nothing sacred, cannot be undone To overcome is to embrace our fear To forge ahead, and walk alone Reclaim desire, to see the unknown Abandon time, erase eternity Strength is attained by the fire of yearning The path to acceptance is a journey without end

Morgawr 05:12
Bring forth the time that remains, To those who seek the meaning of the Word, The will to break a system, A need for those who can create, Words are what make us, Are what we create, language is dimensional, In the midst of chaos showing This love is ever flowing Monuments can be turned to ruins But words cannot decay, cannot decay The universe is an extortionist Forever slowly bleeding us dry And the will to thrive is denied By contextual divides Separation of word and void. A structured cluster of pre-conceived ideas, schemas, Schema Can Create. Words may transform into cosmic entities Structured by the will of man to design infinity Separate, word and void become one with the aethyr Bring together dark and light and incarnate all that we fear
5.
I Am 05:57
I am the glacier’s crest above the forests, freezing you mid thought and the ancient voices from the greying fog I am the thought that overtakes your mind and fills you with a singular happiness. I am your third hand and your second I am the shadow, the grey one Who cannot ever forget you. I am the leaves the you burn in the fall the swift cleansing of your conscious I am the glistening of the leaves and I am.
6.
Further from sane, In time I'll break
 mechanical processes leading my way 
reality ceases to be, divulging from actuality
 alien phenomenon wiping our dreams 
harvesting our thoughts and beliefs 
what is to be, or the non-being
 a warped vision and safety 
theories of absurdity washing our faces 
corrupted societies plot to end the nations
 Diverging resources to fatten the people 
The starving revolt and empty the steeple
 Rotting and porous the end of our world 
the character of mankind becomes unfurled
 a king on his throne, sovereign rules 
while citizens burn, despairing and doomed 
No stone left unturned, no soul left alive
 Fiery landscapes brighten the skies 
Bereft of the living, a land of the dead
 Defeated and giving, the world has bled
7.
Healer 04:29
And I see the light ,surrounding you from a blinded hollow I gaze I stare Fallen not unveiling, fallen not waning From hollowed ground, fallen I stare For life was not meant to despair I pry through the crowd to catch a glimpse The power leaves me weak at my knees Fallen not waning, fallen unveiling Restoring, like air to drowning lungs like fire to burning wood inside a lifeless tomb the after, the mending, the air resurrecting so breath in, again, breath in again and restore.
8.
Thanatos 04:11
There's a sense of satisfaction in knowing that you're gone A sickening feeling of emptiness no longer prolongs Residing within me, the place you shall be, a deepening rift that slowly impedes the ability to know you after death Humanity deciphers your holy texts withering the body to the illiterate Falsely identifying with ignorance The word corrupted to bend to the will of Man.
9.
From the Dawn of Mankind, in the bleakness of night From the formless and void, of his birth A journey, a struggle, endless in time To attain understanding and strength The fire of will, Prometheus gave So they, as gods, could create and destroy A light on the path, of prosperity From archaic void, to an ending unknown Within mankind's hand, the greatest of power To consume and to reign upon earth But restraint he disdained, consequence ignored In blind search of truth, wisdom was lost Formed from the earth, from whence given life Bestowed with the fire of gods Heedless of presage, resolved to defy The cause of this mortal design As civilization reaches its end From origin, primordial, to the status of gods The fire of power, burns in their minds For their creation, an agony of suicide For the gift of fire, a consequence of torment Bound to knowledge, to suffer its wrath For the knowing negates, the innocent mind As clear sight is gained, darkness consumes

about

2019 Version of the Digipaks Available



[http://www.facebook.com/Amiensus]


Long in the making, Amiensus started recording Restoration in Winter 2010. Setting out, we had no real idea what our finished product would sound like. We simply wanted to make a unique metal album that blended beauty and decay harmoniously.

We recorded it ourselves in our homes and dorm rooms and finished recording in Fall 2011. We sent it off to Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams) to mix/master it and re-amp our guitars, drums, and keyboards.

Writing this album was our release. Because of this, Restoration reflects and explores many personal things that members of the band have been through and were dealing with around the time of it's writing process. The album also discusses psychological, theological, and religious concepts that interest members of the band.

Thank you again for your support!
