"1440 minutes a day / [...] We all do feed on corpses / There’s nothing to do, nothing we should do... / Children of a dead generation, a dead generation." - Pink Turns Blue, "Dead Generation"

"A dead sun, a pale glow / [...] My heart is a tomb / My heart is an empty room." - Chelsea Wolfe, "Iron Moon"

"Je n'vois que ton corps couché les bras en croix / Dans les catacombes de mon désespoir / Désir étrange / Des gouteurs de Sang." - Opera de Nuit, "Annabella"

"From the safest places / Come the bravest words." - The Sound, "New Dark Age"

"Deine qual ist meine lust / Meine liebe ist dein tod." - Xmal Deutschland, "Qual"

"Loose clouds like earth's decaying leaves are shed /Shook from the tangled boughs of heaven and ocean / Angels of rain and lightning/ [...] The locks of the approaching storm, thou dirge / Of the dying year, to which this closing night will be the dome of a vast sepulcher / Vaulted with all thy congregated might / Of vapors, from whose solid atmosphere / Black rain, and fire, and hail will burst." - Trisomie 21, "West Wind" (Percy Bysshe Shelley)

"Bleak are the hearts in summer, long the wintertime / Out on the chill horizon shine the morning stars / In configurations I'll remember, heralding the season always / [...] Eternal are the grey skies, gardens invert / Nightshades of Eden touch me -- forever touching /No god has answered prayers here, except for ourselves." - Killing Joke, "Winter Gardens"

"The cold outside lays waste to life, suspends the process of decay. /Alone without a friend, suffer as night becomes the death of day. / [...] Wrap up warm, you'll catch your death -- don't let your death catch you. / The winter tears the earth apart...." - Amebix, "Winter"

"All truth is parallel / All truth is untrue." - Rozz Williams, The Path of Sorrows

"Bloody smoke, foggy smoke / Beginnings and endings... / Great Babylon has fallen, fallen, fallen / Jerusalem has fallen, fallen, fallen / The great, great beast is dead, dead, dead / [...] And some other bleeding children are smiling / They're dead in the rubble / They're dead, dead, dead, dead." - Current 93, "All the Stars Are Dead Now"
