01. In Darkness (We Shall Be Reborn)

Yeah

There on the fields of death
We meet again
Surrounded by all the light
In vain

This is our fortune
This is our burden
This is our last home
This is the ending
This is absolution
This is our final tomb

Yeah

In darkness
We shall be reborn
The shadow gods call
With a wolves' howl

Oh, great Akasha
Let me rest
Under a radiant moon
I pass your test
This is our ending
Our last goodbye
Death is calling
With his sweetest lullaby

Destroy my shell
To settle my ghost
Carry me amongst
The few of the lost
The knife is sharpened
And my skin is free
Oh, Mother Night
Bring, bring me to thee

In darkness
We shall be reborn
In darkness
We shall be reborn
In darkness
We shall be reborn
In darkness
We shall be reborn

In darkness
We shall be reborn
In darkness
We shall be reborn
In darkness
We shall be reborn
In darkness
We shall be reborn
(In darkness)
(We shall be reborn)


02. I've Risen

Through my eyes
With one hand
For my will
Within a breath

I grabbed, owned and brought terror
To all the foreign lands
I took the precious gift of life
Throughout any realm of existence

I have risen
I have risen

I gave life to thousands of sons
And I saw them all fall before me
I ruled the weak, I ruined worlds
In my endless decades of might

Uncountable is the amount of suns
I've seen rise, pass, and sink
Unnamable all the kingdoms I've seen
Conquered and destroyed

I have risen
I have risen
For my will be done

I have risen
Between the strong
Above the weak
I have grown up
With demons and angels
In struggle and silence

(You will) see my tales on the wall
Of any grave in forgotten lands
(You can) see my shrunken temple
My body, once the house of a god
(You can still) see the statues standing
On my kingdoms soil, showing my pride
(You might) realize my triumph
Above all flesh and steel
The god and devil am I

I have risen
I have risen
For my will be done

I have risen
Between the strong
Above the weak
(Above the weak)
I have grown up
With demons and angels (angels)
In struggle and silence

I have risen
Between the strong
Above the weak
(Above the weak)
I have grown up
With demons and angels (angels)
In struggle and silence

I have risen
Between the strong
Above the weak
(Above the weak)
I have created
Paradise and hell
In my era of domination


03. Favorite Sin

People go to church
For the same reasons
The same reasons
They go to a tavern
To stupefy themselves
To forget their misery
To imagine themselves
Even only for minutes
Free and happy

So I looked behind
And beheld a pale horse
And his name who sat on him
Was Death
And hell followed with him

So I looked behind
And beheld a pale horse
And his name who sat on him
Was Death
And hell followed with him

"Power was given
Unto them
Over the fourth
Part of Earth"

"To kill with the sword
With famine and death
By the wild beasts of the Earth
When the sun turned black
And the moon blood-red
And the stars fell down to Earth"

To do all that one is able to do
Is to be a man
To do all that one would like to do
Is to be a god

Woman, make a stand
Come crawling to my hand
Put away your fear
It's only me, my dear

Man, if there were dreams to sell
What would you buy, tell?
Eternally, your favorite sin
Is pride that apes humility

Imensitate, veşnicie
Tu, haos, care toate-aduni
În golul tău e nebunie
Şi ii faci pe toţi nebuni

Imensitate, veşnicie
Pe cînd eu tremor în delir
Cu ce supremă ironie
Arăţi în fund un cimitir

Woman, make a stand

Put away your fear

04. Oceans Of Black

(Beckon our last goodbye)
(When you hear this call)
(You can't face the fires)
(Once you feel them all)

Another time, another day
Maybe once we can return
We together
In the oceans of great darkness we will burn

Lay down with me and listen closely
To the sounds of the old blue
Telling stories long forgotten
Can't you hear they're just for you?

Another time, another day
Maybe once we can return
We together
In the oceans of great darkness we will burn

Feed the flames of the pictures I adore
We come together for the end
While he's calling us for more
Play the violins of death upon your naked skin
Kiss me one last time and let us die in sin

Once we will meet again
In the burning halls
Where all the sorrow flows
And slowly death befalls

Oceans of black
Shall carry us throughout the night
Where only death is real
They shall be our guiding light

Swim, let yourself be carried with the tide
And on a lovelorn day
Put all your fears aside
Behind the dreary path
Look back to all that's past
To realize that life is just the way
To endless death at last

Feed the flames
Of the pictures I adore
We come together for the end
While he's calling us for more
Play the violins of death
Upon your naked skin
Kiss me one last time, my dear
And let us die in sin


05. Adio

Yeah

Young, wild, green with a children's mind
And a heart so loyal and bright
But stigmatized and sacrificed
By the feedings of the light
I turned away, head from the sway
And find my only path
In the blessings of the flaming ones
An eon formed with a new oath

Hold your head up high on the causal, sparkling rays
Of the barren, false and blind
Or follow me where you can see
The power of the blackest light
Once the wolves will howl together
And sing their mighty song
And the blackest sun alights the world
And saves us from all wrong

The solace of death can't revoke
The pain of a thousand years and lies
The solace of death can't remove
Those bitter times

I break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside my heart
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

I break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside my heart
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

Darkness filled with a mind so skilled
And loyal to the blackest arts
Concerned with light in her last rite
To open up the darkest hearts
We have found our final ground
To evocate her bright
In the shining of the silver moon
Into the mystic night

Willing now to sacrifice
And look beyond the ghastly ice
Then break the mirror, set the knife
And free yourself from life
We who wander beyond the sun
Are blessed with her last kiss
Damned to walk among the dead
And cursed with human bliss

The solace of death can't revoke
The pain of a thousand years and lies
The solace of death can't remove
Those bitter times

I break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside my heart
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

I break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside my heart
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

Căci astăzi dacă mai ascult
Nimicurile-aceste
Îmi pare-o veche, de demult
Poveste
Poveste

Şi dacă luna bate-n lunci
Şi tremură pe lacuri
Totuşi îmi pare că de-atunci
Sunt veacuri

Cu ochii serei cei dentâi
Eu n-o voi mai privi-o
De-aceea-n urma mea rămâi
Adïo
Adïo

(Căci astăzi dacă mai ascult)
Adïo

06. Somewhere Somewhen

When all the dust of gone times
Is blown apart
Through the world's new spheres
All pain of forgotten dark times
Is broken by the light
Of a bright growing day

Empty new world
Unknown surrounding
The power of creation
Is now in our own hands
Beyond the knowledge of everything
Outside our realm
We are forever to be

Somewhere, somewhen
We'll meet again

Survived the wildest waves
Climbed the highest hills to see
Crept through the most forgotten valleys
And fought unimaginable wars

Yeah
Somewhere, somewhen
We'll meet again

Survived the wildest waves
Climbed the highest hills to see
Crept through the most forgotten valleys
And fought unimaginable wars

Somewhere, somewhen
Somewhere, somewhen
We'll meet again
Somewhere, somewhen


07. Dusk Of An Infinite Shade

Fâşii de văluri negre
Pe soare se-aştern
Tu, lună-a vieţii mele
Înfăşură-te-n umbră
Vino, zână
Fii crudă şi fii sumbră
Cufundă-te-n hăul
Urâtului etern

Eh

Fii tot ce vrei, fii noapte
Sau roşie-auroră
O singura-mi regină
Făptura-mi-ntreagă te-adoră

Şi-n mine orice fibra
Te-ntâmpină voioasă
Umbre multe se-ngroapă
Adânc în noapte

Ruini, suntem un sânge
Solemni în fiecare noapte
Iar carnea-i rece
Străpunsă de-a ta umbră
Ma-mbată tot ce-mi dărui
Dureri sau vis etern

Robit de-a ta privire
Din vraja ochilor îţi sorb
Tu mă mângâi pân'la sânge
Cu ghearele-ţi de corb

Şi-mi arde sufletul, esenţa
Într-un foc aprins în inimă
De fiinţa ta nocturnă
Dar tu-mi pari ca-ndepărtezi ironic

Adâncile zenituri
De braţele-mi întinse
Spre negre infinituri

Yeah

Şi de fiecare data
Când luna, ea dispare
Când noaptea dă să plece
Şi umbre-ncep să ardă
Atunci, eu lacom
Strâng regina-mi palidă-n braţe
Ca un muribund ce-n taină
Mormântul şi-l dezmiardă


08. Höllenfahrt Der Selbsterkenntnis

Wir haben den Augenblick
Den lebenswichtigen Strahl
Der noch andauert
Der, wenn er erlischt
Alles vergehen lässt
Ein Schatten in tiefer Dunkelheit

Die Sterne sind verloschen
Wie im Herbst die Blätter fallen
Für immer entschwunden

In der endlosen Ödnis
Herrscht keine Regung mehr
In der Nacht des Unwesens
Stürzt alles nieder

Alles schweigt
Alles schweigt

Und die Maschine der Welt kehrt zurück
Doch mit euch vergeht die Zukunft
Was einst war, wird nie mehr sein

Wir sind erneut Vergangenheit
Ohne Herz, trist und kalt
Wenn Schlaf, des Todes Bruder
Würdig die Welt regiert
Mit geschlossenen Lidern
Und seinen stillen Träumen
Altert um mich die Zeit

Wie eine alte Tanne
Auf hohem Felsen
Verdorre ich auf meinem Thron

Bald wird der mächtige Tod
Seinen schwarzen Mantel
Über mir ausbreiten
Und seine Flügel meinen Hauch
Auf ewig tragen
Auf ewig tragen

Denn ich bin und werde immer
Vergangenheit sein
Ohne Seele, trist und kalt
Alles fällt, alles schweigt
Und alles ist mir fremd
Hier
Hier


09. Adio (Acoustic Version)

Let's go together with the flare
As for today we do not care
And we will leave this world behind
Drunken of love and, oh, so blind

Oh, Holy Death, take us away
On your black wings into the night
Oh, Holy Death, take us away
Goodbye

We break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside our hearts
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

We break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside our hearts
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

One last embrace, a final kiss
As for tonight no one will miss (us)
And I'll follow you to hell
Farewell

Oh, Holy Death, take us away
On your black wings into the night
Oh, Holy Death, take us away
Goodbye

We break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside our hearts
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old

We break down
As the stars burn cold
Burn bitter and cold
Inside our hearts
Yawns a wound so deep
So deep and old
