The Somberlain Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Zyklus
1. Black Horizons (8:10)
From my Tower I behold the landscape below
I see the river of blood in fury flow
I stare into the night, yet my visions clear
From the distant villages every word i hear

[Chorus:]
I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow and from daylight in my tower i hide
I have seen the abyss and all that lies within
I am the great shadow and i was born in sin

Thy shadow swept by like an angel fading to grey
Thy eyes were like weakening candles leaving the flames to die
Thy pale cold face, once so full of life
Now its torn as of thorns of ice
Thy towers fell to the ground

[Chorus:]
I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow and from daylight in my tower i hide
I have seen the abyss and all that lies within
I am the great shadow and i was born in sin

Yes this is the land, the land of the black horizon
Where the shores are covered with the bodies
of thy followers
Triumphal vengeance, Dethroning the shape of thou
Fade I say, wither away

[Chorus:]
I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow, no daylight over my kingdom ride
At the black horizons, my eyes and souls the wind
I am the great shadow and i was born in sin

I am the almighty, the one with wisdom wide
I am the great shadow, no daylight over my kingdom ride
At the black horizons, my eyes and souls the wind
BEHOLD THE LAND OF SIN!
2. The Somberlain (7:05)
I fell deeper and deeper as light now was gone
I could feel the dark embrace my soul
Agony was no more, and so was pain
At this point of solitude I knew I was there
There where I belong
Thus far a long journey through my souls infinity
It has been a journey far beyond mortality
I have found what I wanted, tranquillity
I'll thrive on evil, eternally

I flew over crystal ground
My existence, numb
Over orchards of grievance,
sorrow and tears
This beautiful silence
calls me now
Black fog devours me but I can see it all
The monument of my past,
this land of seven horizons before my eyes
I reach the land of spiritual rest

Its the dawn of descending
- I am the Somberlain
down to evil divine domain

Lord of infernal, gather my strength
Carry me through the gates

Its the dawn of descending
- I am the Somberlain
down to evil divine domain

For Im eternal night
- Im the Somberlain
Precede my evil divine domain
3. Crimson Towers (0:49)
4. A Land Forlorn (6:38)
The mountains below we reached by our will
The flames of our swords are burning still

Temptated by the night to spread hate and fear
Were the revenge the blackest, Their souls is our prey

Storms of evil, thunder and might
Their moons in our eyes, a guiding sight

[Chorus:]
Were in the march of profanity
The darkest breed, again well rise
forth against the flocks of the weak
Well approach a land forlorn

Our hordes arrived / Oh hordes of white,
watch us take your lives
As false youll fall, falseness disappear

(The Land) where eyes are blind we have found
Battle sign under the shape of mine
Darkest souls now set free
We rose again, damnations reign

Watch me absorb your thoughts
See me ruin your halls of light
Weltering in your sadness for infinity

[Chorus:]
Were the march of profanity
Your tragedy, falmes will rise
forth against the flocks of the weak
No return, A land forlorn
5. Heaven's Damnation (4:40)
Striking over oceans of blood
Over kingdoms in fears
Where the night bred its cold
dark the winter drew near

[Chorus:]
Watch the sky, the crimson tears of heaven
The darkened mist of burning hate

Ashes of the past, Years that fell into oblivion
Visions so dim they had, memories of a time
yet to come

[Chorus:]
Watch the sky, the crimson tears of heaven
As damnation reaches the hidden land

Through the forest of profanity
The sound of cries
Brought forth by the night sky

Invoked by their own tongues, Yes theyre truly
awake now
The souls that were sleeping, under the tree of death

And i laugh as i burn down the pearly gates of light
And forever Ill be within the arms of abomination

Embracement of eternal dark
With the ancient souls at the sides
Wasteland bathed in evil...
are one with the blackened sky

[Chorus:]
Watch the sky, the crimson tears of heaven
fade to black and welcome the night of all nights
6. Frozen (3:44)
Far beyond all light
Within the black and the coldest breeze
Caressed by the dark, I had my sleep

Awakened by the moon
Nocturnal life, my powers to be
Keeping myself alive by sucking your mortals blood...

[Chorus:]
Frozen winds of immortality
as I drown in obscurity

Still feeling the taste of blood...
It makes me so strong...
I spread my wings...
Into soul winter I fly...

Tears in my eyes turns into fire
as where I belong...
The cold within, it chills my skin,
my heart and soul...
In ecstacy I shred myself
to release whats held within
In solitude Im having my pride
I, Transylvanian son...

[Chorus:]
Frozen winds of immortality
as I drown in obscurity

I fall deep into whats for me unseen
Eternal flames lick my face
In purgatory Im all within
But Im forever bound to my frozen soul...
7. Into Infinite Obscurity (1:05)
8. In The Cold Winds Of Nowhere (4:20)
Search for my subconscious
Lead me into myself
A need to discover the dark
A will to enter these gates
Oh, This temptation
to end this empty life
In my dreams I saw my real side
A journey through forever
my visions oh so bright
Watching eternity open
as I turn out lifes light
Oh, this temptation
to leave this earthly shell
Deep inside, the toll of deaths bell

In the cold winds of nowhere

With a sigh I pass away
Falling, into harmonic sleep
Then Ill find my prophecies wasnt lies
Falling, into the abyssI come...

I...I am dying...
Death...Does heal me...

In the cold winds of nowhere
9. The Grief Prophecy / Shadows Over A Lost Kingdom (3:29)
I - have travelled through eternity
I will - reign once again

You will never rule again!

Hunger - A thirst for your pain
I will - see your kingdom burnt by sins

Join my crusade of a time left to come
To spill the blood,
Youre the ones who never saw the sun

Now I hear it, the calling
I hear the calling of the mist
The ancients and their slumber
Eenai, will rise again from the sea
Prophecy...
From the sea...
10. Mistress Of The Bleeding Sorrow (4:34)
So dark...Im facing my destiny
As far as pleasure led my disciple was me
For ages I have been searching for my bride
Since she passed away grief became my guide

[Chorus:]
As darkness falls above
- It will be there for centuries
My mistress of sorrow she will hear my call

I sort of entered the other side...
when those words were called up to the sky

[Chorus:]
As darkness falls above
- It will be there for centuries
Mistress of sorrow, please hear my call

As darkness falls above
- It will be there for centuries
No mistress of sorrow ever heard my call

[dedicated to life]
