And Thou Shalt Trust... the Seer Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. The Day As Heaven Wept (5:47)
One of man's darkest chapters, it has just begun
In the sign of the cross they rise
It's the epoch of the inquisition
Too many brothers and sisters have died...

..left with no life inside to be awaken
They will never see the morning sun again
Hypocrisy killed the forsaken
Who thought, faith would be their only friend
Faith would be their only friend

The scenery shows the ashes of some who tried to refuse
Rising smoke becomes one with the dim light of the pale and lurid moon
Can dark clouds hide the hidden from the mighty eye of God?
Using his name on the pretext of deciding who's allowed to live... and who's not!
(It's a very dark night, nobody outside...
Silence wraps up the land, as suddenly
Hoof beats destroy all sleep
In a very dark night...)

Who's allowed to live... and who's not!

From high above the Lord silently watches and grieves
And sadness rises from his inner deep
"For thou, my son hath been crucified..."
All the angels laid down their trumpets and cried

"One shalt be sent to foresee mankind's death!
Rain shalt be my tears and thunder my wrath!"
Sitting on his throne, left of all hope he once kept
On the day, as heaven wept

As heaven wept
2. Origin Of A Crystal Soul (5:55)
As dawn is weaving between fallen autumn leaves
The poor ones gather under naked trees
Asking how to survive, 'cause the winter breaks
And medieval coldness now from a deep sleep awakes

Libera me, domine, de morte aeterna in die illa tremenda
[Free me, oh Lord, from eternal death on that terrible day]

It's December, 14th 1503, as the ones above stop their mourning
As the one arrived - selected to foresee - something changed without a warning!
(Libera me, domine, de morte aeterna in die illa tremenda)
[Free me, oh Lord, from eternal death on that terrible day]

Es war geboren in des Christengottes Zeit
[It was born in the time of Christian God]
Ein Bub - so die Legende - mit des Schöpfer's Fähigkeit
[A boy - so says the legend - with the Creator's power]
Zu sehen, was sein wird, im Verborgenen, unerkannt
[To see what will be, in obscurity, unknown]
Denn der mit dem Leumund des Ketzers würd' öffentlich verbrannt
[Then he that's known as a heretic would publicly be burnt]

Die Hand, die - greifend nach dem Schönen - blutet von der Rose Dorn
[The hand, that - reaching for the fair - is bleeding from the rose's thorn]
Der Trieb der Menschen Habgier, bestraft durch Gottes Zorn
[The human instinct of greed, punished by the God's wrath]
Er, der Spiegel eurer Seele, spürt die Trauer, Kummer, Gram
[He, the mirror of your souls, senses the mourning, grief, sorrow]
Er, der Träger dieses Namens: Michael de Notre Dame
[He who bears this name: Michael de Notre Dame]
3. Requiem In D-Minor (2:08)
[Instrumental]
4. In A Pale Moon's Shadow (9:38)
Hostem repellas eternus
[May you forever repel the enemy]
Pacemque dones et protinus
[And give us peace, and from then on]
Ductore sic de praevio
[With you, our leader, in front of us]
Vitemus omne noxium
[We shall evade all evil]

Hostem repellas eternus
[May you forever repel the enemy]
Pacemque dones et protinus
[And give us peace, and from then on]
Ductore sic de praevio
[With you, our leader, in front of us]
Vitemus omne noxium
[We shall evade all evil]

A dream deep in the night
As the firstborn awakes with the sign
A little dreamer... but are dreams always to define?

"Do not fear, my son! Awaken the dragon inside
For he may guide you, being the world's hidden eye
Through a dark time, when mankind is bleeding within
Oh little dreamer..."

Hostem repellas eternus
[May you forever repel the enemy]
Pacemque dones et protinus
[And give us peace, and from then on]
Ductore sic de praevio
[With you, our leader, in front of us]
Vitemus omne noxium
[We shall evade all evil]

A**lyzing the midnight sky
And in the early morninglight
He just feels the warming heart
Beating in his head

To declare the reason why
Should I survive this sadness
"God reality back in my mind" - beating in his head

It's a very dark night
Nobody outside
Silence wraps up the land as suddenly:
Hoof beats destroy all sleep

And a wooden coach loaded with innocent ones
Accused and sentenced, their end has begun
And their eyes can't cover their fear... can't cover their fear

And he thinks he must be dreaming
Lifts up his head, sees the sky is gleaming
Heaven burns as red as blood

And all they have caught, they won't return
The sky reflects, from superstition they burn
When will they ever learn... They never return!

Ein drohendes Pochen in tiefschwarzer Nacht
[A threatening rapping in pitch black night]
In Träumen geseh'n und nun wahrgemacht
[In dreams foreseen and came true]
Die Diener der Kirche sind hier, sie zu holen
[The Church's servants have come for her]
"Brennen sollst du mein Kind! - Der Herr hat's befohlen!"
["You shall burn my child!" - It's the Lord's command!]

Do not fear my son! Awake the dragon inside
For he may guide you, being the worlds hidden eye

Als am Pfahl sie brennt, nun schwarz ist ihr rotes Haar
[When on stake she burns, now her red hair is black]
Niemand mehr zweifelt, daß des Teufel's Weib sie war
[No one doubts anymore that the Devil's broad she'd been]
Geschlagen, getreten, bespuckt und belacht
[Beaten, trodden, spat and laughed at]
Die Flammen dem Leiden ein Ende gemacht
[The flames made an end to the suffering]

A scream deep in the night
As the firstborn awakes with the sign
A little dreamer... but are dreams always to define?

Die Flammen dem Leiden ein Ende gemacht
[The flames made an end to the suffering]
Die Flammen dem Leiden ein Ende gemacht
[The flames made an end to the suffering]
Ein Ende gemacht
[An end to it]
Und wieder pocht es in tiefschwarzer Nacht...
[And another rap in a pitch black night...]
5. Cantus Firmus In A-Minor (2:32)
[Instrumental]
6. De La Morte Noire (8:02)
Born through astral constellation
Those pictures are now getting clearer
Inside his head
And sent by the highest god
They start to rise from the deepest depth

"My King - dead - no!!!!!
Dying by the lance... so slow..."

He wipes the tears
Away, and tries to think
As clear as the falling rain
But his hope begins to sink
But his hope begins to sink...

.. down to this point
Do you fear? Yes you do, and you always will!
The bleeding of another part
Crawls into your mind and still...

Es kam zu erinnern
[There came, to remind]
An des Menschen Buße
[About Man's repentance]
Die Maske des Vogels
[The mask of the bird]
Nickt höhnisch zum Gruße
[Bows for a mocking salutation]
In Schwarz gehüllt
[Clad in black]
Auf schwarzem Rosse getragen
[Carried on black steed]
Die Menschheit zu knechten
[To subdue humankind]
Kam der Herr der Plagen
[Came the Lord of the Plagues]
Pest regiert mit strafender Hand
[The plague rules with punishing hand]
Und Leichen bedecken das Land... das Land
[and corpses cover the land... the land]

Out of the sorcerer's chamber?
Or do they come straight from the hands of the goal?
This roses' leaves seem to be magic
And saved all the poor population below
"My wife... sons... no!!!!!
Diphteria creeps, and no one knows..."
7. Lost (Robin's Song) (4:25)
Running away in the autumn rain
Did you ever see a little child sleeping?
"To be near them will my sorrow drain..."
Suddenly I stocked, their bodies weren't breathing anymore
And I couln't help!
They captured my heart with their sorrow... it grows

Due to the ones who fear
Dance in the morninglight
Due to the ones who fear
Slaves to this innocent might

Due to the ones who fear
Dance in the morninglight
Due to the ones who fear
Slaves to this innocent might

Carrying away the ones I love
Folden hands, they have been blessed
Now I feel angry 'bout the ones above
Just no warning, no sign
Hey, yes, I fear!
And I just really feel darkness inside
Lost without a chance to hide

Due to the ones who fear
Dance in the morninglight
Due to the ones who fear
Slaves to this innocent might

See me down
Down on the ground
Hoping that nobody hears
The sound of this falling tears

Endless bleeding
Hoping that nobody sees
What you did to me!

Endless weeping
Hoping that nobody hears
The sound of this falling tears

Endless mourning
Hoping that nobody knows
This feeling below
8. A Midnight Gathering (2:59)
In the woods we met you, stranger
And though we don't know your face
Take your fiddle, come on over
Sit down 'round the fireplace

Watch the flames are dancing higher
They are longing for the sky
Heroes now will be awaken
Elder stories let their spirits fly

Watch the flames are dancing higher
They are longing for the sky
Heroes now will be awaken
Elder stories let their spirits fly

In the woods we met you, stranger
Now it's time to say goodbye
Like all the stars that lead the blind
We're hiding with the morningrise
Hiding with the morningrise
Hiding with the morningrise
