Return, To the place that you call home... Your sanctuary... That place that keeps you safe, when the hardships of life, are just too much for you to take... When you are all alone... When you are feeling cold... Remember: You are the only one... Those memories shall come in waves... of pain again... The fire burns forever more... consuming all... and rendering it, to ash... (the wind shall blow away...) Eternity, it seems, will still for me... to relish each and every lick, of miseries roaring flames... The Antithesis of life... And the will to survive... The Antithesis of life... And the will to survive... And the leaves come falling down... Return... To the place that you call hell... That place where only... you can find solace in... you can find peace... On your own... With no-one to confide in... When the hardships of life, are just too much for you to take... Remember... The antithesis of life... And the will to survive... And the leaves come falling down...

With the weight of the world on my shoulders, how shall I progress? As the pain shall run through me... In Solitude, the skies are toiling, Oh, I cannot wait for them to fall, and bring that blackened rain... And now, the storms that roar, upon these rocky shores, rip forth from this, our watery womb, though destitute of being... We are condemned; to walk this earth, alone... We are condemned; to hating everything... Dragging the deadwood, behind me... (behind me) It's time to cut the ropes... Ah... With the weight of the world on my shoulders, how shall I progress? As the pain shall run through me... In Solitude, the skies are falling, To bring that blackened rain... Forth upon the world... How shall I progress? As the pain shall run through me... In Solitude, the skies are falling, To pour that blackened rain... Within... the ashes... of the deadwood... the gems that I found, were not worth their weight in lies... Within... the ashes... of the deadwood... the gems that I found, Cast away, now belong to someone else... ...and so it goes... ...and so the embers die...
4.
Wings... come to carry me away... From this home of my despair... In the shade of a behemoth... I hide... I hide... Feeling so low, In my eyes you would never see the loss... Oh the sun, burns so brightly... I can see... Wings... come to carry me away... From this home of my despair... In the shade of a behemoth... I hide... from this life... Wings... Come to carry me away... From this... world... Wings... come to carry me away... From this home of my despair... In the shade of a behemoth... I hide... from this life...

“Claw the Earth deep enough and you shall find Hell”
6.
Noctilucent, through the trees and branches I climbed... To see the vistas behind me... In the shadows... of the summer night sky... Waiting for autumn to take me... Awaken, from thine elegant slumber... and weave with me a story... of woe... of ebony branches and bone... Where we both shall meet again... In time... As the silence sings it's song, and the world turns evermore... in the winds of time, we shall be together... Though reality and I... dance the danse macabre... What little threads of fantasy, will hold this tapestry... Together... Like never before... Together... We shall live no more... Noctilucent, through the trees and branches I climbed... To see the vistas behind me... In the shadows... of the autumn dawn... Waiting for winter to take me... Down...
7.
A barren heart, Grown through decay, What fervour is wrought out? Thrown to the tide... I lay myself down, Reflect, on all my sins, That I've done in this life, Or the ones yet, to commit... I buried myself to find, The depths of which these roots do bind... Streams above, and dirt below, The dark shall now entwine me... From the edges, of this bitter fall... down the same old paths as before, following the call... I buried myself to find, The depths of which these roots do bind... My wings burn... As I fly far too close to the sun... And now... one more time I try, To salvage this wreckage... before the embers, turn to flame... These roots go deeper than anything engrained, the misery of memories that haunt me... and the pain they bring... Overshadows any joy... Overshadows the brief light that shines... Overshadows my loss... Overshadows all other pain in my life... I clawed the earth deep enough, and I found hell...
8.
Oh, the rain defies the amber sunshine... And the bitter wind returns... before time stood a chance, Frozen in the grain... Those embers finally died... Leaving me alone again... Those I have left behind me, Shall haunt my memories... but I shall walk alone, on this downward spiral... The leaves that wilt around me... shalt mock my futility... as hopeless as I was, to stand, at the end... And I will walk... alone, holding onto this burden... waiting for nothing to change, except the same again... and to and fro, we take our chances, at life, but never know, the misery that awaits us once again, that we know too well... Again, the tide begins to turn, and the waves are far between... The sea breeze turns to frost... Frozen in the grain... The sands beneath have shifted, unveiling hell below... That frost that fell, and froze my heart, has turned to wintery snow... And I will walk... alone, holding onto this burden... waiting for nothing to change, except the same again... and to and fro, we take our chances, at life, but never know, the misery that awaits us once again, that we know too well... ...And once, The sun has set the final time... the footsteps in the sand shall wash away... and everything thats happened in the past.. will drift away... leaving nothing but pure unchanged grains... ...But I remember...

"With The Depths, Aeurtum has successfully brought Opeth’s intricate progressive bleakness to their own, doomier material. The result is astonishingly good – particularly considering that this is a solo project that is yet to perform live, and absolutely deserving of your attention." 4/5

Nicholas Cleeve - Onemetal.com


"This is one of those compellingly hard-to-pigeonhole bands that borrows from several genres yet doesn't belong to any outright. Whatever you call it, The Depths of Which These Roots Do Bind is one of those many excellent metal albums that will be released to little popular acclaim, but which deserves much more." 80/100

Goat - Metalreviews.com


"This is a well-crafted, balanced and eminently listenable album: one that lives up to its title in the way it conceals some greater depths than the approachable surface atmosphere initially suggests. It's difficult to find any faults with either the concept or the execution, or with the way Aeurtum has refined and matured its direction as a band." 8/10

Mike Liassides - Doom-Metal.com
