Ghostlands: Wounds from a Bleeding Earth Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Gjallarhornet (1:40)
Instrumental
2. The Universe Is Dying (5:09)
Just like they foretold
At the fires, speaking tales of old
The boundless welkin
Autumns wind from the deepest within

Drawing maps in the sky
This endless vastness that we can't defy
A lingering radiance
Languid songs in saturnine cadence

In timeless eons I waited
To see the grand collapse
The voices from my veins
Showed me the end of time

Just like we foretold
Everything imploded and grew cold
Fragments of the past
Feel the darkness grow and outlast

Our hearts went nova
Leave behind this frail and dim soma
The aurora enthralls
Periastral imminent downfall

Sing me to sleep
I shall return
For we are unborn

In timeless eons I waited
To see the grand collapse
The voices from my veins
Showed me the end of time

The universe is dying
Traces of man undone
The voices from the void
As we merged into one
3. Under hennes vingslag (4:05)
Ur evig sömn, där tid och rum ej fanns
Jag vaknar, bryter mig ur valvet
Ur evig sömn, där tid och rum ej fanns
I mitten av bergets hjärta

Jag är kallad ännu en gång
Att rycka bort, jordens törnar
Jag klyver dalar, urberg och vyer
Konstellationer i kaos

"Under Hennes Vingslag
Kommer vi alla att förgås
Marken slukar de svaga
Vedergällning, tusen år har gått

Gravar kommer att tömmas
Rötter kommer att slitas upp
Hör hur skogen viskar sången
Hennes tid äro kommen"

Jag vandrar, men nuddar ingen mark
Min skugga, vittrar sönder liv och bark
Nordlandet sätts i kaos och ur balans
Evig snösommar, köld i hennes trans

Formlösa skepnader i trans
Natures vedergällning, död var allt som fanns

"Under Hennes Vingslag
Kommer vi alla att förgås
Marken slukar de svaga
Vedergällning, tusen år har gått

Gravar kommer att tömmas
Rötter kommer att slitas upp
Hör hur skogen viskar sången
Hennes tid äro kommen"

Må ni blunda och drömma om
dimmklädda skogar, lockropens sång

Då norrskenet färgade den snöklädda jorden
Urberget kunde nå den brinnande solen
Kaos har rivit fram, med vrede i skogen
Död har rivit sår, i det ärrade Norden

"Under Hennes Vingslag
Kommer vi alla att förgås
Marken slukar de svaga
Vedergällning, tusen år har gått

Gravar kommer att tömmas
Rötter kommer att slitas upp
Hör hur skogen viskar sången
Hennes tid äro kommen"
4. Godless Serenade (5:20)
We are the wounds from a bleeding earth

Over thickets, groves and glades, 'neath the valley deep
The lush verdant hills have been draped in snow
In the heart of wilderness, nightfall walk with me
Here I depart from myself, nightfall sing for me

"-We are the void"

Telltales of dead winter nights
My song will usher out the light
Over natures colonnade
Behold my godless serenade

We are the coalescence
of a billion stars
Just like restless souls
Waiting in endless rows

When the world turns into cinder and ash
"-I beckon thee, my formless creator
I am the fire and the sea my vindicator"
5. Oceans (5:26)
Waywards the ravenpath do lead
Echolalia sounds through these empty halls
Left and forgotten by a time now gone
Nothing left but ashen memories

Creating ways to lead you astray
Breaking waves 'neath these sky so grey
I will bleed like the ones before me
So take heed and witness the end

We left our home
Not in fear but in stride
We won't return
Until the last one is burnt

We sail away across all of the seven seas
Yet we drown before we take our leave
We take part of a journey that cannot be
Yet we are judged before we are set free

These pallid faces which I once knew
Have turned into a well of lost souls
The scars from the past have turned the nails of time
Never to return to brave gone by days

All we have are scattered recollections
Now stuck in an endless loop of despondency
Away from the oceans of woe we foregather
To rejoice in these final hours

We sail away across all of the seven seas
Yet we drown before we take our leave
We take part of a journey that cannot be
Yet we are judged before we are set free

We leave this world through our incomparable deeds
A nautical journey devoid of fear and greed
As a spectral concord thrashing like a crest
Just like the tides of life we'll never get to rest
6. Silverdimmans återsken (1:57)
Jag sfvävar längst med silverdimmans vatten
I månljus väntar där en drömgestalt
En evighetens gåta
Skymningportens vakt
Träd in i mörkrets pakt

Kom, slukas utav natten
Sjönko ner i silverdimmans sjö
Rofyllt skall du domna
I nattsvart vatten somna
För att sedan hitta hem
7. Tidh ok ödhe (4:50)
I minne cenotaphe af root ok bladh
Bleckar jach nedh å dhet såm een gång var
dimmekläddt fjell ok diupa daalar
Som om hiorden drömpde i tung dwala

Näär elwen rööt, bjöd siönn opp til danz
Tidh ok rum stodh handt i handt i trance
Beskodha denna sidzsta simfoni
Et draugcrescendo lijkt nattelig magi

Vakna nij moste vakna alt förgåås
Soffua nij moste soffua
Att faa döö, är att faa vakna

"Mijn siäl är bedröffuat alt in til dödhen
Hvart är mijn modher, ok minne brödher?
Skepet mitt på haffuet ok på landet allena
Tagie migh heer i fraan"

Vakna nij moste vakna alt förgåås
Soffua nij moste soffua
Att faa döö, är att faa vakna"
8. Beneath Ravens and Bones (5:43)
"Behold our land
Where we have walked since ages past
A fortress built from soil and tree

Behold our land
Devoid of falsehood, only unyielding nature
Convalesce within the aegis of quintessence

And now my brothers!
We will die again and again
Together we'll repeat the circle"

Unarmed and bleeding I'm forced down on my knees
A stalwart gaze fixed on the gibbet tree
Yet unbroken and proud I accept my fate
I close my eyes and reject your blind faith

Will we die alone?
Beneath ravens and bones

I watch the firmament rearrange
...and gods in deep slumber awake
Taste the wrath of a million years
Crack the shell of this celestial sphere
...and gods in deep slumber awake

The torn banners of my forefathers
Lies here scattered from the slaughter
My corporeal form sway under the sun
My life's journey has just begun

Will we die alone?
Beneath ravens and bones

The bones
The signs
The stars
All align
9. The Windmill (5:12)
Each day darker than the one before
I stand hopeless, empty and alone
The light from the great afar
Nothing but smouldering human char

Watching from a distance
How life effaced from existence
This life which could never be
I drift away within my sea

From the Windmill, I see it all fall apart
Light the black flames
Revelations of the black arts
...and thus spoke the abyss to me
Light the black flames
Revelations of the black arts

The last sanctuary for mankind
Upon this darkened hill so confined
One last flicker from the fire
Before the impending quagmire

As men, women, children stood
In apathy, burning like wood
My doors are impenetrable
And I feel no remorse...

From the Windmill, I see it all fall apart
Light the black flames
Revelations of the black arts

Stain the world colorless
Stain the world in solitude
And that which I can not see, means nothing to me
Stain the world in solitude
10. What We Lost in the Mist (6:40)
The peaks of our past will withstand the test of time
Magnificent aspects of nature adored
With affection we peer across our untouched lands
Within every man lies a deep fire burning

Stories told, stories lied, that which we can not hide
I let the river run it's course through my veins

Wherein lies the beauty which rekindle our hearts
Each step throughout wondrous seasons explored
Over perpetual snow we walk with vie and servitude
The mountain is our king, the wind our queen

Our stories have no choice
So listen to the tempest's voice
A flicker on our ancestral shore
and there was nothing more

As the smoke recedes
Unveiling our futile deeds
A walk across divine collapse
We wander as centuries elapse

The memories we thought we had
are just fragments of what used to be
Fruitlessly searching along the banks
for someone or something that can not be

The last light dims away, as do our tale
A slow descend into the waters of null
The glow we had within is what we gave
What we found will forever remain lost
11. The Boneless One (5:22)
Quench my thirst for endless death
Liberate my skin beyond our time
Aphelion, come to me
My sail is torn under waves of led
Neptunian abyss, siren's allure

Relinquish my sight from all pride
Anchor my form, reliquary of souls
O Perihelion, come to me
I can taste thee, I feel thine flesh
Immolate me under your breath

I summon thee
The Boneless One
Destroyer of ships
Deceiver of man

I invocate thee
The Boneless One
Devourer of stars
Douser of light

I am no longer bound
Release my ship
Without my sails, I am free
I begin my journey
My sight is clear
Without my bones, I am free
12. To Worship (6:47)
To worship the land we adore
Is to feel your soul swept ashore
On woodland thrones and bones
We build our homes with stones

Gods known and unknown
See my disheartened tears
My body longs for thee
At heart you are my only shining dream

To worship the mountains high
Is to accept your fate and die
On the peaks of Nordlaniæ
We sing as one aria

Transcend and taste the wind
Pillars of creation, I peer
To die in the arms of your kin
We set sail even though the end is near

Archaic words and songs
Pathos to my sullen soul
Bury me with the last stars
As they shine no more

To worship is to claim your firmament
To worship is to read your last sacrament
On these shores my brothers have bled
We weep as the last word is said

Fly, take me to the sky
Die, I am forever
We are the weaves of this cosmic tapestry
Cry, as the last star is gone
