The Umbersun Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Du Trefonds des Tenebres (10:44)
[Premier Nocturne]

Horror, Lucifer solutus,
Anguis a catenis suis liberatus.
A sparkling shade of hate embraced the whole horizon.
A shadow of horror is risen
The Sun is bent,
Consumed with deepest sins.
Terror rains from the skies.
De caelo pluit terrore,
Igne et aestu, igne ardenti,
In fornacem ignis aeterni.
Abyssus umbras suas ingentes
Iacet in latera adamanteia.
Nos devorat lux repercussa.
Above your visions, a circumradiant Sun,
And in your Eyes, vibrant with echoes,
A deafening and neverending commotion.
The path of the Angel is a firmament of tears.
Fawn blazes of fury from the First Eye of God.
Mikhael. Raphael. Gabriel. Uriel. Raguel. Sarakiel.
Moloch. Chamos. Baalim. Ashtaroth. Astarte.
Belial. Beelzebub. Apollyon.
In Inferno reigned the enchanters of pain.
We write the scriptures of moans.
We spread the spawn of Despair.

Shaitan Lucifer
Lucifer, qui mane oriebaris.
Kill me for Thy Name's Sake.

Omega and alpha, the last and the first,
He that liveth through death and life inverted.
Hell was not so dark a labyrinth to hide this face,
Admire it scarred by lightnings.
For Thee I beheld no Mercy Seat of gold...
But the screams of Heaven crucified.
In profundis tenebrarum
Aurei cruentique solis occasus.
Dominus fletum e Styge hausit,
Solus beryllus continet lucentes illas lacrimas.
Dominus fletum e Styge hausit,
Tamen in eius profundis abyssus abyssum invocat.
The Light echoes the Light.
The dead envy the dead.
Our burned feathers cloud
The infinite reflexion of the decentred moons.
In the dead of night,
The heart of the night
Knows a more shining star.

Sub atro sole
Tenebris lucet abyssus temporis.
Domini nomen foedatum,
Peritum regnum caelorum.

I unname Thee, Ialdabaoth.

Under a black sunset
Every creature foundered
In the petrifying abyss of Time.
Paradise regained!
Paradise regained!
Paradise regained!
We'll reap the fruits of glory...


[English translation:]

From The Depths Of Darkness

Horror, Lucifer is released,
The serpent has freed himself from his chains.

Terror rains from the Heavens,
Fire and blaze, burning flames,
Into a gorge of eternal fire.
The abyss throws its towering shadows
Onto the adamantine walls.
The reflected light devours us.

Satan Lucifer
Lucifer, who rises in the morning.

In the depths of darkness
The demise of a golden and bloodred sun.
The Lord has drawn his lament from the river Styx,
Only beryl holds back these shining tears.
The Lord has drawn his lament from the river Styx,
But in its depths the abyss calls the abyss.

Under a pitch-black sun
The abysm of time glows with darkness.
The name of the Lord is stained,
The Heavenly Realm is lost.

Have mercy.
2. Melpomene (10:26)
[Premiere Lecon]

I looked into the eyes of the Basilisk.

Beside the shores
Of silver streaming sadness to be,
She came to me disguised as Melpomene.
Like asphodels winding through the chasms of Heaven,
We were passing along the waves of the ocean
And slowly reaching the gates of the Sun.

The beams of the night preceding me...
The streams of light preluding you...

The walls were weeping blood
But feverish was our waiting, Love.
You once cherished our embrace
That day the horizon was weeping nights.
The instants of time were running low
And every shape set like bronze
Reminded me of your name.

The shore landscaping your face...
The sea piercing through your eyes...
A sea died from the salt of our tears.

As the scale of a pearl preventing her from being an eye for the Sun,
I am but death and stain within you.
As the foaming quiver of life softly soiling the surface of ennui,
You are the dream in me.

Surround me with colours I am longing to see
And shadow that light upon me.

Sear me in a sea of snakes.
3. Moon of Amber (6:12)
[Premier Repons]

We watch the Moon of Amber.
And again, the Garden mourns its silent dream.
Unguarded, some fragments of light linger in your sky.
Were we like sublunary lovers
Straying on the seas of your heart,
Sailing down the streams of your mind,
Soothing your marble face anew...

Dim... in the shadows of our sun,
We have been blinded by agony,
Our dazzling eyes empty of stars,
Our voices wordless with fear,
Our ears so envious of deafening,
Our withdrawing souls longing for death,
We drowned in a Moon of Amber.
4. Apocalypse (9:14)
[Second Nocturne]

Deus in adiutorium meum intende.

O Domine,
Te ipsum luce velans,
Prodis ex alis ventorum.
O Domine,
Exaudiens omnes preces,
Admitte precationes suppliciaque tuorum.
O Domine,
Illustret facies tua
Adytum tuum desolatum.

We hide from the Face of God.

Domine Sabaoth, Sabaoth Domine

We hide from the Face of God.

Turn loose the angels of your Face, Lord Sabaoth,
Libera angelos faciei, Domine Deus Sabaoth,
Thou who hast the keys of Hell and of Death.
Custos clavium infernorum atque mortis.
The sky torn apart, departed,
Caelum laceratum
Pours the fury of an empire pervaded.
Furorem imperi pervasi profundit.
And the eyes of the Lord are upon the sinful host.
Conversi oculi Domini ad improbas legiones.

We hide from the Face of God.

Coronam vitae dona nobis, Adonai,
Qui habes Davidis clavem adamantinam.
Nemo aperiet quod clusum a te,
Quod apertum a te claudet nemo.

We hide from the Face of God.

A door is opened in Heaven,
We hide from the Face of God
For the Seventh among the seals has been broken.

And there was a silence in Heaven.

[English translation:]


God, come to my assistance.

O Lord,
You who cover Yourself in light,
You walk on the wings of the winds.
O Lord,
You who hear all prayers,
Give heed to the pleas and prayers of Your kin.
O Lord,
May Your face
Illuminate Your deserted temple.

Lord God of Hosts, Lord God of Hosts

Free the Cherubim, Lord God of Hosts,
Guardian of the keys of Hell and of death.
The lacerated sky
Sheds the fury of a pervaded empire.
The eyes of the Lord are upon the sinful Host.

Grant us the crown of life, Adona,
Keeper of the adamantine key of David.
Nobody opens what was closed by You,
Nobody closes what was opened by You.
5. Umbra (8:43)
[Seconde Lecon]

We entered the heart of darkness.
And in the dead of light,
The Seventh Angel poured his vial into the air.

Embosomed in my Temple is a statue bereft of life.
Sweet umberbird, lighten her eyes lest she sleeps the sleep of death,
For she has seen the Face of God and her life must be preserved.

We met Luvadea, Maughter of mine,
And crowned her with emeralds and innocence.
But she was wearing the cobalt raiment of the Angel of Death.

Your bloodstained hair sears me in a sea of snakes,
A sun of amaranths,
With rays crawling on the Fields of Tears.

Adorn me in your torpid Temple
And forgive me if I cannot wake this dormant smile in your eyes.
The Cyllenian god did love my sweet music forlorn.

Elohim, Elohim Sabaoth, Elo Shadda, Adona,

When the Sun remains silent,
I will lay my angels down,
For the Arch of my Temple is a parchment of blood.

Even Death has fled from me.
I have seen the Face of God
And yet my life has been preserved.

The Bride of the Lamb poured herself into me.
And Despair fell on us,
As if we had entered the heart of darkness...
6. The Umbersun (5:46)
[Second Repons]

'Ehyeh 'asher 'ehyeh,
Heylal ben Shahar.

Agnus in medio ante solium nos duxit ad aquarum vivos fontes.

Flammas Lucifer matutinus inveniat,
Ille Lucifer qui nescit occasum.

Nam supremus dies irae ventus neque unus quidem stabit.
Haurient caecum vinum irae Dei, quod infunditur non mixtum
In eius calicem.

Letum infernaque in mare ignis deiecta sunt.
Fawn blazes of fury from the Seventh Eye of God.
Est mors secunda. This is the second death.
Est mors secunda. This is the second death.

Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachtani.

[English translation:]


I am the One Who Is,
Lucifer, son of dawn.

The lamb before the throne led us to fountains of live waters.

The bringer of dawning daylight has experienced the flames,
Lucifer, who knows no demise.

For the day of wrath has come and none will be able to stand.
They drink the hazy wine of God's wrath, which is poured unmixed
Into His chalice.

Death and Hell were hurled into a sea of fire.

This is the second death
This is the second death

My Lord, my Lord, why have You forsaken me
7. In the Embrasure of Heaven (5:53)
[Troisieme Lecon]

I'll die without a whisper against you, my Lord.

Roses her eyes on the weary veil of Dawn.

We were lost in a sea of darkness.
A darksom opalescent sky left us stranded
Within the remnants of our dreams.
Oblivion ensnared the azure in our visions.
The Moon became as blood,
And I wash its reflection in my own blood
Which dyes purple stars to ivory rain.
But we were lost in a sea of darkness.

And we met her, Luvadea,
The first born of Death.

Plorans ploravit in nocte.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi,
Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine.

We drank the water of life from a sapphirian stream.
An amethyst tear,
Your thornless tear.
The offspring of David is the bright and morning star,
Christ Lucifer.

[English translation:]

The wailer wept at night.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
Lord, grant him eternal rest.
8. The Wake of the Angel (4:46)
[Troisieme Repons]

I am the eyes of the Basilisk.

As you enter the forest of my sleep,
Drawing aside the bushes of glimmering light,
You will remember the prayer of Orion.

Drifted in me, you are alone.

The hour approaches and the Moon, dim as clay,
Pours a sea of tears into our swollen eyes.
Kill the dying in my soul, my love,
For Death once dead bears no more dying then,
And you'll be dead to strike the dead.

I have written your name so often
On the chiselled vault.
But my writing hands are the roots of my misery.

Now everything stands still in the wake of the Angel...
9. Au Trefonds des Tenebres (5:04)
[Dernier Nocturne]

Cele cette encre qui parchemine ton visage...

Dans l'orbe d'une caresse,
La Troisieme Soeur adombre la lumiere.
Elle aime en silence, libre et inexorable.
Fidele la seule, offerte et elue,
Elle entend ma voix sourdre au trefonds des tenebres...

Et ils m'entourent,
Ils m'entourent les gemissements de la Mort.

[English translation:]

In The Depths Of Darkness

Conceal this ink that overlays your face...

In the orb of a caress
The third sister obscures the light.
She loves in silence, free and inexorable.
Her, the only faithful one, devoted and chosen,
She hears my voice burst forth in the depths of darkness...

And they surround me,
They surround me, the wailings of death.
