The Curse of Mankind Lyrics

(5)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Overmotets Pris (12:14)
2. My Scars Hold Your Dreams (13:10)
"Join me", I say beyond the forest and the holy lake.
...."Be mine", I yell under the silver stars beyond the crimson haze.

Crawl into my open wounds
And il show you all your dreams....
"Search, and you'll find diamonds in my rosegarden".

Oh,how neat you dance between the ancient trees
"...Dance beloved one" I laugh in your dreams.
Crawl into my open hand, and i'll clench it...

Far beneath your well of thoughts
you swim in my wounds....
I embrace you with my poisoned blood
and drag you to your bed of Thorns.

Eternally, you'll sleep in my rosegarden
Fear me, and i'll give you claws.
3. The Starlit Waters / I, The Mountain (18:26)
I... Will lead you to the stone
that is stronger than you...
The monument of my past,
I'll guide you through the walls of mist
and my sunless realms...
The woods Forgotten...
This one time,
In my world, you're mine!

The starlit sky above
the water mirrors... The water is my blood,
the stone is my human shell.
Those two things I found so worthless
for what is an existance among you mortals..?

As my light extinguished years back... When..?
I remember not.
I felt cleansed... Darkness with it's claws,
invincible yet strong, tore my dusty shell apart.
Death I fear not, I am Immortal!

I am the lakes, the mountains too.
The lakes where my blood calmly and
poisoned rests, and as a towering wall,
I am the mountains built by my very own,
Flesh and Skin...

[Lead]

The dust at my feet swept away by the wind
called...Devastaion.
The dust, I always hated...
...Why..?
You need not know.
YOU are the dust, while I, the mountain
do not even sway in the wind.
4. With Swans I'll Share My Thirst (4:40)
[Instrumental]
5. Den Ansiktsløse (12:25)
"Dette burde vært natten for min død..."

En ensomt, gråblekt og gledesløst menneske
stod ved vinduet og visste ikke
at det tenkte sine siste tanker...

"Kom...kom...befriende død.
Slipp meg fri.
Jeg vil forsvinne..."

(Menneskets sinn voldtas)

"Rekk meg din hånd, du ansiktløse
og visselig skal du smake pinens sødme..."

Fjerne røster lokker...

"Vi vil sveve på en bomullsdrøm av torner.
Føg meg til ditt helvete..."

Mennesket dras mot fløyelsstemmens
lokkende ord...

"Kom inn i min sjel,
jeg kler deg naken og river deg opp...
Komm inn i min verden,
jeg kaster skygger ned i dine sår...
Svelg min tunge,
og jeg vil omfavne ditt hjerte
til du ei lenger ett hjerte har..."

Skjøgene vil forgå...
Tåpene vil forgå...
Ah, som en hest i flammer
stormer jeg gjennom porten inn
til mitt eget rike.

...en ny spire er sådd i fløyelrommets hage.
6. The Velvet Room (11:08)
The room opened widely before me....
So silent,so empty it seemed.
...Virgin white,Virgin light.

Swans emerged out from the velvet walls...
Dancing..Time stood still.
I caressed them with my eyes..
...Sinfull white,Sinfull light.

"How can you watch this happen
without tears in your eyes..?"
the velvet lake roared.

Drowning swans who screamed My name..My name.
"Let my world rape you" I yelled..
I turned and walked away.

...My ravens followed me.
7. Jomfrulysets Fall (Vinyl Bonus Track) (6:34)
