Seasons Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Prologue: The Bride Wears Black (5:28)
Masks concealed the real mourning
No noise were allowed
Misfortune came with large steps
Enveloped the future into a shroud

The bride wears black tonight

Valleys got deeper and deeper
The summits disappeared in beautiful
Clouds a path
In sick infinity
Deep abysses and beside it

Travelled in endless trains
Try to solve my existence
Sins, often pure temptation
Praised, hallowed, just lies [repeat]

Voices to bear, inner futility
Be it true, be it my love
Coming to torture you...
...To torture you with my devotion

[repeat 1st verse]
2. A New Winter (4:48)
"Don`t care. It won`t change anything.
Perhaps I don`t care, but it`s not that easy to be sure
When your laughter still resounds in my ears.
"Don`t care. Today I look at you through other eyes and
More and more it seems to be sure I was blinded.

Verdammtes leiden, saures lieben,
Verdammt das leben, dessen Schem
Verschwand, stillschweigend aber stetig,
Um nunmehr stumppes Nichts zu sein

Verdammt die Traume, die ich hatte
Heut noch nab`und haben verge
Sie sind nun schal, was ubrigblied
Sind stille Tranen auf der Erde

"Fur Hoffnung 1st es me zu spat-"
Dacht`ich - Doch was 1st mir geblieben?
Wo 1st die
Hoffnung wo das licht?

Wo der Frubling nach langem Winter,
Der nun das graue Eis zerbricht?
Verdammt sind wir, verdammt zu lieben
3. The Phoenix/Spring (5:59)
The phoenix

"And from the ashes a Phoenix rose - with
Wings made of gold it
Gently touched me, a touch of relief. I was
Ready to start a new
Circle, hoping it would never come to an
End.
"Never too late for hope" - the grey ice
Melted - slowly..."

SPRING

Where is my world,
The beggining of my life bound,
Surrounded by light,
Wandering aimlessly around.
Hearing voices calling my name
While I hover, world`s dark stain.

Where is my summertime?
I`m longing for its warmth,
Far too long I shivered
In winter`s icy force
Clouds are above me
Mid air caresses my lungs
I let myself drift, waiting for spring sun.

Soft grass - but it hurts to go over it,
Pointed stings - running between I stick
Brooks are roading, the water blood red
Please let me drink, but I can`t, I`m dead.

Souls are screaming, mothers and sons
Are slaughtering themselves, am I teaching
A dream...

[Repeat 1. + 2. verse]
4. The Dancer/Under a Summer Sky (8:24)
The Dancer

"And then, with a glistening beam of vivid light,
Spring was gone and summer drew near,
Pervading our minds and our eyes were blinded with delight.
For a short moment we joined in the dance of life and
Time disappeared, leaving us behind in our embrace..."

UNDER A SUMMER SKY

The air - massive like lead
Too sultry to give, to give a sigh
Sheer unbearable she lies on me
Your love to me feels so dry

To beat - unable to move
Every attempt just a rude glide
The sweat runs on bare skin
Comes and goes like your love shine

[Repeat verse 1]

Under a summer sky of love
I see your soul above
Under a summer sky of love
Your name in my heart I`ll carve

No sleep - a total repose
The warmness pervades my blood
No wind that breathes life
A existence without you would be like being blind

You`re gone - like the summer will leave
One day it will... be over
The time slings yet slowly
Like your love from my shoulder
5. Twilight (1:04)
"First leaves touch the ground
Shadows are to be our company
An age draws near
In which days die away, die softly
When the light dwindles
When the curtain falls
The sun is conquered
Grey veils cover the world
And our hearts vanish the void"

[ZWIELIGHT]

"Erste blatter beruhren die erde
Schatten werden zu unseren gefahrten
Es bricht heren eine zeit
In der tage vergluhen, sanft sterben
Wenn das licht schwindet
Wenn der vorhang fallt
1st die sonne besiegt
Verhullen graue schleier die welt
Und unsere herzen verlieren sich im
Nichts."
6. Autumn Leaves (7:18)
Been has her being
Urged to the dwelling of your ancestors
All the long way to their resting place
Now your place, nothing left, no more...

Hungering your love lies in a coffin
Can see the laughing vault
Ramdripping on darkened woods
Love`s soul is fearlessly sold

Escaped from our world
My elegy accompanies you
She`s buried under autumn leaves...

During a howling storm
Dusty claws are grasping at her
Thursting for infinity
This is not her destiny...
7. Untergehen und Auferstehen (6:54)
Werde untergehen und auferstehen
Erhalten durch elixiere gemischt aus blut
Wer will mich halten, wer mich toten,
Wer solite sie loschen, meine glut?

Ich spucke feuer aus der tiefe meines
Herzens
Da meine welt zugrunde geht-
Mein hang zur qual hat sie zerstort
Auf knien das ende herbeigefleht

Hab`mich erborochen nachdem ich dich
liebte
Als du nackt vor mit lagst
Ein zeichen demer augen, ein gutes
Geschenkt dir aus schmerzen, auch wenn
Du klagst

[Repeat chorus]

Werd`dich vermissen, so tief der schmerz
Die angst macht alles noch viel schlimmer
Durch meine adern fliesst atzende saure
Gedanken statt worte, statt liebe
Gewimmer...

Noch uber den wolken fliege ich
Die luft voll der vogel gekreische
Mein wille, er jagt mich, verfolgt mich
Ein bestie auf der suche nach faulendem
Fleische
8. To Learn Silent Oblivion (3:08)
"Huge and ashen and overfull roll the clouds
To crush the horizon and affliction drops vis-cously
As trip, depreves the mind I would just need to
Lern silent oblivion from the world"

Stilles vergessen zu erlernen

"Schwer und grau und ubervoll walzen sich
Wolken, den horizont zu erdrucken
Und trubsinn tropft zah wie sirup, raubt die
Sinne, welche ich brauchte, nur um von der
Welt stilles vergessen zu erlernen"
9. A Winternight Depression (9:03)
Fading light - I see the shadows fall.
I hear the darkness sigh.
As it rises from a dead man`s pillow.
Taking his last breath to the winds outside.

Threads of moonlight torch the ground.
Show forms a cover of silence.
Candlelight spreads its wings over my soul.
The flame illuminates the night.

Searching for answers, my mind`s deceit.
With myself torn to fragments, my life means defeat.
Where is my saviour?
Why did he leave me alone?
In my winter frost palace where sorrows are sown.

I try to find a way deep into my dreams.
Try to flee from cruel reality.
To be suspended into a sea of emptiness.
And never, never wake up again.

Did you ever hear a dead baby crying in its cradle?
Did you ever see a black sun rising above a silent world?
Did you ever speak words no one would ever hear?
Did you ever scream out what you feel when you see the pain?

I see a new day, the candlelight dies.
The darkness meets the beauty of the light.
10. Epilogue (3:02)
Und unter ew gem eise begraben
Liegt die deele da und schreit
Muss sich sich nahren, muss sich laben
An des daseins dunkelheit - nichtigkeit

Epilogue

And buried under eternal ice
There lies the soul and cries
Has to nourish, to refresh
On our being`s darkness - nothingness.
