Winter Thrice Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Rhymes of the Mountain (6:43)
The mountains chime a vast, relentless rhyme.
The majesty, the regency prevails the everlasting rivalry.
Crowned by the haze of history, a ferocious tore, a regaining core.
Ordained by the weight of gravity, echoes through the halls of lore.

Echoes through the halls of lore.
Crowned by the haze of history.

The monumental fortress of primal grace.
Shimmers beyond the horizon astray.
Vast and wondrous, cast of the glorious.
Harmony, diversity, adversary.

The cycle of all, the rise and fall.
Exuberance in waste, depravity.
Excellence in barren nobility.
The lore of monumental regency.

The rhymes of the mountain.

The cycle of all, the rise and fall.
Exuberance in waste, depravity.
Excellence in barren nobility.
The lore of monumental regency.

The rhymes of the mountain.
The rhymes of the mountain.

Vast and wondrous, cast of the glorious.
Harmony, diversity, adversary.

Vast and wondrous, cast of the glorious.
Harmony, diversity, adversary.

Ordained by the weight of gravity.
Echoes through the halls of lore.
The monumental fortress of primal grace.
Shimmers beyond the horizon astray.

The cycle of all, the rise and fall.
Exuberance in waste, depravity.
Excellence in barren nobility.
The lore of monumental regency.

The rhymes of the mountain.
2. Winter Thrice (6:13)
The sound of the groaning frost.
Enforce the waves of blinding winters.
Days of reaping and nights of aghast.
Seasons aligned, under the wintry sign.

Under the wintry sign.

The groaning, moaning sound of this frost, a blinding eternal blizzard.
Seasons aligned and now under the sign of crisp eternal winter.

Nature, eternal winter.

I have wandered the skies,
throughout the starry neck of nowhere.
I have swarmed the horizon,
throughout the eternal fields of everywhere.

Time and time again.
From shore to shore, from star to star.
The deep bloodlines of the earth as seen from afar.

Upon the ground of rumbling ruins.
History shattered, moments withering.
Raving forces of the inevitable.

Nature!

I have wandered the skies,
throughout the starry neck of nowhere.
I have swarmed the horizon,
throughout the eternal fields of everywhere.

Time and time again.
From shore to shore, from star to star.
The deep bloodlines of the earth as seen from afar.

Nature, the cast of the future.

Upon the ground of rumbling ruins.
History shattered, moments withering.
Raving forces of the inevitable.
The reigning union of the nature.

The regaining cast of the future.
From shore to shore, from star to star.
The deep bloodlines of the earth as seen from afar.

Horizons that hosts no scenery.
Starless, unending skies.
Wakes the beastly void.
Winter thrice!

Horizons that hosts no scenery.
Starless, unending skies.
Wakes the beastly void.
Starless, unending skies.

The dance of stardust stills.
Drapes the mountain, winter thrice.
3. Cold Runs the River (5:51)
Cold runs the river, warm runs my blood.
The old signs quiver and my mind-mountain releases a flood.

A life nerve in a barren era,
raised by the heat of the sun.
I drink its potion from well and caldera.
Through earth-veins it flows, forming a canyon.

Ice draped rocks, flesh cover bones.
The cabals of eternity burn in the night.
As the watercourse that rinses all stones,
unify my path with the river site.

Cold runs the river, warm runs my blood.

Groundwater recharge, blood pumping heart.
Circulatory systems refined.
Streams of wonder, where my torrent starts.
Time and motion aligned.

Ice draped rocks, flesh cover bones.
The cabals of eternity burn in the night.
As the watercourse that rinses all stones,
unify my path with the river site.

As the river of time and nature's crown.
Face season's last breath and the final exploration.
As the river of time and nature's crown.
Face season's last breath and the final exploration.

The surface is numb, blood slows down.
Frozen landscape, human deterioration.

Cold runs the river, warm runs my blood.
The old signs quiver and my mind-mountain releases a flood.

As the river of time and nature's crown.
Face season's last breath and the final exploration.

Ice draped rocks, flesh cover bones.
The cabals of eternity burn in the night.
4. Panorama (5:51)
Inner landscapes provide the ground for structures.
Development plans, architectural design.
Nature in it's purest form.
Intuition feeds the progression.

Read me, decipher every word.
Then multiply the dormant issues.
Just tear me down, then build me up again.
Accentuate, proliferate, recreate.

Vines and trees, new species on cultivated grounds.
Planned sequences and astonishing leaps.
Everything grows, everything dies.

Everything grows, everything dies.
Everything regenerates.

Blueprints come in three letter systems.
Inside repeats the outside repeats the inside.
The distance between what we see and how we see it.
A perpetual cycle of adjustments.

Read me, decipher every word.
Then multiply the dormant issues.
Just tear me down, then build me up again.
Accentuate, proliferate, recreate.

Echoes of what was, resound in what is.
Between organic structures and inside them.
5. When Chaos Calls (7:02)
Shores retreat in disarray.
Melting glaciers lead the demise,
and connects to the rapidly rising tide.
A ramming fluid out of firm ice.

A wall of waves and an abyss of water.
Drench the land, coastal erosion.
Submerged by the increasing sea levels slaughter.
It stirs our inner ocean.

Shores retreat in disarray.
Melting glaciers lead the demise.
A wall of waves and an abyss of water.
Drench the land, coastal erosion.

When chaos calls, a drowning of the skyline.
A world ruled by horizontal waterfalls.

They flood out of pandemonium's...
They flood out of pandemonium's shrine.

We're buried by persistent snowfall.
It levels out topography.

When chaos calls, a drowning of the skyline.
A world ruled by horizontal waterfalls.

No more hindrance for the storm to call.
Out to destruction and catastrophe.

Periodic freezing unsettles, building a kingdom of frost.
Chaos dressed in a calm fettle, set to efface and to exhaust.

Submerged by the increasing sea levels slaughter.
It stirs our inner ocean.

When chaos calls, a drowning of the skyline.
A world ruled by horizontal waterfalls.
When chaos calls, a rift in earth's core.
A world ruled by horizontal waterfalls.

They flood out of pandemonium's...
They flood out of pandemonium's shrine.
6. Erodent (6:56)
The trails of existence thrust into the future.
A future that crumbles, riddance by revulsion.
Woven roots uphold the ground, earthly bound.
The ground we walk, the ground we fought.

Woven roots uphold the ground, earthly bound.

Rivers drift into eternity, draining the potency.
The endless maze, the blinding haze.
Shimmering stars uphold the course.

Waves that rave the coastal line.
Rain that reaps the breeding soil.
Wind that pierces the heart of man.
The fire that burns all creatures around.

Waves that rave the coastal line.
Rain that reaps the breeding soil.
Wind that pierces the heart of man.
The fire that burns all creatures around.

The trails of existence, entwined through history.
Eras that passed in degenerative haste.
Grind the roots, withering ground.
The ground we walked, the ground we fought.

Waves that rave the coastal line.
Rain that reaps the breeding soil.
Wind that pierces the heart of man.
The fire that burns all creatures around.

The ground we walked, the ground we fought.

A past that holds the dawn of man.
A march that crumbles stones to sand.
The vast exploration, the last ravage.

The vast exploration, the last ravage.
The prodigies of ruination.

Erodent, a past that holds the dawn of man.
Erodent, a march that crumbles stones to sand.

The trails of existence, entwined through history.

Waves that rave the coastal line.
Rain that reaps the breeding soil.
Wind that pierces the heart of man.
The fire that burns all creatures around.

Waves that rave the coastal line.
Rain that reaps the breeding soil.
Wind that pierces the heart of man.
The fire that burns all creatures around.
7. Noctilucent (3:54)
Noctilucent!

Deep in the twilight, crystals of water ice.
Lightened by a sun that dwells below the view point.
Eerie and shining clouds on darkening skies.
As dust and vapor conjoin.

Noctilucent!

Deep in the twilight, crystals of water ice.
Lightened by a sun that dwells below the view point.
Eerie and shining clouds on darkening skies.
As dust and vapor conjoin.
8. Terminus (7:09)
The boundary is my stronghold, I push the glacier towards the edge.
Stepping across the horizon's threshold with an unexplored domain to wedge.

I catch the sun and tame the flares,
as thunder strikes for a hundred years.

I climb the hills, I climb the hills.

I climb the hills, they are my stairs,
to the starry sky and to the ardent spheres.

Terminus, I catch the sun and tame the flares.
Terminus, as thunder strikes for a hundred years.

The culmination and the foundation, first man to the end of the world.
The gateway and the manifestation of the borders I expand in a storm swirled.

Beyond the branches, deep in the sources.
I have my home, I have my trust.
The elemental outline of the universal courses,
while sea and land clash under stellar dust.

I climb the hills, they are my stairs,
to the starry sky and to the ardent spheres.

Terminus, beyond the branches and deep in the sources.
Terminus, I have my home, I have my trust.

The elemental outline of the universal courses.
First man to the end of the world.
While sea and land clash under stellar dust.

Raised to seek,
grown to see the flames of creation and prosperity.
At the end of the path I build my fortress,
with pillars of dreams and nature's primeness.

Raised to seek,
grown to see the flames of creation and prosperity.
At the end of the path I build my fortress,
with pillars of dreams and nature's primeness.

Primeness!

Raised to seek,
grown to see the flames of creation and prosperity.
At the end of the path I build my fortress,
with pillars of dreams and nature's primeness.

Raised to seek,
grown to see the flames of creation and prosperity.
At the end of the path I build my fortress,
with pillars of dreams and nature's primeness.
9. Dominant Winds (7:18)
The hills erode, a change of landmarks
And ancient trees are skinned
Of (leaves) branches and the outer bark
By an ever blowing wind

Its rule and strength lead the rise and fall
Insects drift along the sweeping regime
At mountainous locations massive rainfall
Still, birds follow their inner scheme

From the polar cyclone
A timeless and transparent grindstone
And by the trade winds of the equator
The air flow builds a subtropical gyrator

The hills erode, a change of landmarks
And ancient trees are skinned
Of (leaves) branches and the outer bark
By an ever blowing wind

From the polar cyclone
A timeless and transparent grindstone
Pressure is high but the sun angle is low
Dominant winds

Pressure is high but the sun angle is low
Dominant winds scalp the ridge's crest
Cooling and condensation grows
It hauls from the north and heads from east to west

We're strapped in this blusterous maze
Still unaware of its daily toil
We'll get a glimpse of its power and pace
As we're standing on degraded soil

From the polar cyclone
A timeless and transparent grindstone
And by the trade winds of the equator
The air flow builds a subtropical gyrator
