Filosofem Lyrics

(5)
Submitted by level Zyklus       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Burzum (7:05)
When night falls
She cloaks the world
In impenetrable darkness
A chill rises from the soil
And contaminates the air
Suddenly...
Life has new meaning

When night falls
She cloaks the world
In impenetrable darkness
A chill rises from the soil
And contaminates the air
Suddenly...
Life has new meaning
2. Jesu død (8:39)
En skikkelse lå der på bakken
så vond at de blomster rundt visnet
en dyster sjel lå der på bakken
så kald at alt vann ble til is
En skygge da falt over skogen

da skikkelsens sjel visnet bort
for skikkelsens sjel var en skygge
en skygge av vondskapens makt
3. Beholding the Daughters of the Firmament (7:53)
I wonder how winter will be
With a spring that I shall never see
I wonder how night will be
With a day that I shall never see
I wonder how life will be
With a light I shall never see
I wonder how life will be
With a pain that lasts eternally
In every night there's a different black
In every night I wish that I was back
To the time when I rode
Through the forests of old
In every winter there's a different cold
In every winter I feel so old
So very old as the night
So very old as the dreadful cold
I wonder how life will be
With a death that I shall never see
I wonder why life must be
A life that lasts eternally
I wonder how life will be
With a death that I shall never see
I wonder why life must be
A life that lasts eternally
4. Decrepitude I (7:53)
Tears from the eyes so cold, tears from the eyes, in the grass so green.
As I lie here, the burden is being lifted once and for all, once and for all.
Beware of the light, it may take you away, to where no evil dwells.
It will take you away, for all eternity.
Night is so beautiful (we need her as much as we need Day).
5. Rundtgåing av den transcendentale egenhetens støtte (25:11)
(Instrumental)
Accompanying text:

"Urds brønn er ikke lenger et dunkelt dyp vi stirrer nedi, men en levende strøm som går befruktende gjennem Nordens land. Ja, mod Tilvaerelsens høieste Syner kan dette Liv nu hæve sig i Udfoldelse af sin Grundkraft og Eiendommelighed, hæve sig til Alfader, der er over Valhal, til ham, til den sande Gud..."

"The well of the region is no longer a dark depth, in which we stare, but a living stream,
that fertilely flows through the lands of the North. Yes, to the highest visions of essence,
this life can now elevate itself into development of it's true power and particularity,
elevated to the father of all, who is up high in Valhalla, to him, the true god..."
(Johan Sebastian Cammermeyer Welhaven)
6. Decrepitude II (7:52)
