Underworld Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Next Profundis (7:39)
[Lyrics/Forte - Music/Forte-Codfert]

Crossing the borders of an enchanted dream
Silver dust falling on my hands
Empty spaces of a new horizon
Frontiers to another land

See the stars come closer,
Enlightening your desire
Follow the wisdom of the light

I'm not afraid, take my hand
Show me what's behind the end
Oceans of pureness might stand

[Refrain]
Is there any reason to fall,
Cross oblivion, meets the afterworld
Mesmerizing sights of unknown angels,
Takes me away to the next profundis

As abstract as it can be
I see myself lying in the underworld,
Nothing seems real over me,
But still I know my shadow's watching me

Kingdom of sleep, deepness of earth
I will let time decide for me
The promised land I will find,
When Cronos will steal my mind

[Refrain]
Is there any reason to fall,
Cross oblivion, meets the afterworld
Mesmerizing sights of unknown angels,
Takes me away to the next profundis
2. Introitus/Solvet Saeclum In Favilla (8:14)
[Lyrics/Forte - Music/Forte]

[Verse I]
Ashes surrounding me
Nothing else, but darkness, blood and pain
My determination will prevent you to outlast

[Verse II]
After so many years of disgrace
I feel my hatred becoming mightier
Corrupt your soul, I will
Never ending my pervert plague to flow

[Bridge]
Spread your wings and follow me higher
Leave the dark beyond, repent you Sinner

[Chorus]
Leave our souls in peace
and pray for us to die bravely, O lord I've sinned
Salvation, wisdom and Forgiveness,
I dedicate my death to implore your pardon,
I can't find my way, tracked down by my fate.

[Verse I]
Reign over the world I will
The mandrakes of death I will seed
I'll kill and probably I bleed,
Spreading impureness on your fields

[Bridge]
Spread your wings and follow me higher
Leave the dark beyond, repent you Sinner

[Chorus]
Leave our souls in peace
and pray for us to die bravely, O lord I've sinned
Salvation, wisdom and Forgiveness,
I dedicate my death to implore your pardon,
I can't find my way, tracked down by my fate.
3. Chosen (7:52)
[Lyrics/Forte - Music/Forte]

[Verse 1]
I'm lost in nowhere, I cannot see
What's inside of me
Some changes appear I can feel,
I'm getting alive

[Bridge]
My eyes are wide,
Opened to this brand new world,
I'm not supposed to bleed

[Refrain]
Only my eyes can see your world, like it is,
Blinded by innocence, see the moon fading out to black
Leave out your mind
And if I am the chosen one, I will try
And making you understand, the silence can sometimes be your friend
Whisper your fears

[Verse 1]
Winter's breath leaves a cold leaf on my face
My believing thoughts,
Decrease in shapes of ghostly sadness
I've failed out of weakness

[Bridge]
My eyes are wide,
Opened to this brand new world,
I'm not supposed to bleed

[Refrain]
Only my eyes can see your world, like it is,
Blinded by innocence, see the moon fading out to black
Leave out your mind
And if I am the chosen one, I will try
And make you understand, the silence can sometimes be your friend
Whisper your fears
4. From My Sleep To Someone Else (6:37)
[Lyrics/Forte - Music/Forte]

[Verse]
Sometimes Morpheus's waiting,
For my dreams to make me realize,
How alone I can feel, in my suffers,
How fragile I am.

Who's controlling myself,
My tears are falling,
I'll never be the same,
Open my window to real world,
And let me go...

[Chorus]
And by the dawn I'll know,
If I'll rest in my sorrow.
To breathe to kiss, I'll need
To live my life forever.
I am your army,
I am my own enemy,
I'm frightened by my will,
Can't you hear my appeal ?

[Verse II]
Today's a new season,
Do I have lost, all of my reason?
The blackened sky's awaits
The judgement of my lifeless fate.

My eyes slowly opening,
And I just feel like nothing has changed,
I 'll have to accept truth,
I am condemned to cry

[Chorus]
And by the dawn I know,
I will rest in my sorrow,
To burn, to shout, I will
Not live this life forever,
I am your army
I am my own enemy,
But for no long I'm sure,
By myself I will cure.
5. Underworld (13:25)
[Lyrics/Forte - Music/Forte]

Like the serpent crawling in filth
Murdering yourselves, feeded by spit
A darkened candle you have lit

Why all these sad smiles look so fake ?
Preaching the evil, providing death
Oh my sons, are you awake

How come your world is ruled by hate,
Unholy children in madness state
Chained to the suffering, guardians of Nihil
Blessed are the souls from Underworld

Facing the gates of my world,
Only the pure, the stainless eye
May enter or may die,
Paying the price for the blind

I feel like I've been abused,
A fool god, treated by slavery
The creator, bewitched by his ones
The servant of his child

Show me how,
You will find,
The final peace for your mind
As I watched you from above,
I'll let you rest in Underworld

Nature is dark, coldness is blowing
Shadows of ancient secrets surrounding,
Tears of the fallen angels whispering,
This minute is the last,

And as I dive into dead water,
I can hear the voice of a thousand sinners,
Trying to reach the distant border
Finally leaving their faith far behind
6. Promises (5:03)
[Lyrics/Forte - Music/Forte]

[Verse]
I've been waiting so long,
To see the moon rising by your side,
How many days, since you're gone

I've cried so many times,
But I've spent so many hours to hide,
The tears I had in my mind

[Bridge]
When will I see you again,
Give me a last chance to make
Love, with you forever and ever again,
I miss you,

[Chorus]
I can't feel pain anymore,
I'm just lost in a world of sorrow,
But I will wait the hour
To set your heart on fire

[Verse]
Mountains of ice i will cross
Fountains of gold I will find,
To give you a gift,
As precious as you

In endlessly I will shout,
Your name in the silence of night,
To exorcise my thoughts, as a prayer

[Bridge]
When will I see you again,
Give me a last chance to make
Love, with you forever and ever again,
I love you,

[Chorus]
I can't feel pain anymore,
I'm just lost in a world of sorrow,
But I will wait the hour
To set your heart on fire
7. The Mirror Stage (6:31)
[Lyrics/Bedos - Music/Forte]

[Verse]
What is that shape in front of me
Spying through the looking glass ?
This figure is haunting me,
Aping my every gestures,
Stealing my soul, my self,
The presence of menace is lurking
Behind the translucent surface

[Chorus]
I can't face that figure
Who looks like me, like a twin.
Who is in the mirror,
The similarity,
It can't be me!

[Verse]
I can't acknowledge that individual;
That reflection in the mirror is not my Own:
The beholder may perceive the evil spark
In the clearness of the eye,
Mirroring the darkness of the heart,
The horror!
And yet who can it possibly be?

[Chorus]
I can't face that figure
Who looks like me, like a twin.
Who is in the mirror,
The similarity,
I doubt it can be...
