Triumph or Agony Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 큐션       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Dar-Kunor (3:13)
2. Triumph or Agony (5:02)
Vision of darkness, mad gothic splendour
rhyme of primordial neverending war
carved in the wild rock under the ghost town
sun of the darklands, black pride of Kron

200 nor of unholy stone
speak through the tears of desperate souls
legend and myth will never reveal
the infinite pain behind Nekron's will

Wars of the underworld
fought by our brothers who'll never return

Broken emotions wet from the shy rain
lords of the lost time dream of great revenge
no chance for mind's rest, fear in the dawn's breath
what they will soon find can be just their death

200 nor of unholy stone
speak through the tears of desperate souls
legend and myth will never reveal
the infinite pain behind Nekron's will

Wars of the underworld
fought by our brothers who'll never return

IT'S OUR DESTINY
TRIUMPH OR AGONY
ANCIENTS' GLORY ENDLESS PAIN
DEEP INTO THE DUNGEONS OF HELL

Lux aeterna
de sententia dolorosa
libera nos
lux aeterna
ex dolore sangui
Angelus sempiternus
angelus ex inferno

IT'S OUR DESTINY
TRIUMPH OR AGONY
ANCIENTS' GLORY ENDLESS PAIN
DEEP INTO THE DUNGEONS OF HELL
3. Heart of the Darklands (4:10)
In the dragons' year 9000
after the sixth won war
Nekron conquered the darklands
so began his new reign
His new bloody reign

A whole town built on a rock
as giant as a mountain
portals made of angels' bones
to warm men, elves and dragons
Elves, men, dragonlords

NO TRACE OF HUMAN LIFE
THERE IN THE DARKLANDS
HARGOR BECAME SOON THE HEART
HEART OF THE DARKLANDS
DARK GREY LANDS

In the dragons' year 9000
after the sixth won war
Nekron conquered the darklands
so began his new reign
His new bloody reign

NO TRACE OF HUMAN LIFE
THERE IN THE DARKLANDS
HARGOR BECAME SOON THE HEART
HEART OF THE DARKLANDS
DARK GREY LANDS
4. Old Age of Wonders (4:35)
Over the mountains the first lights of dawn
the rocks around are covered by snow
[Iras Algor:]
"Come here my friends, enjoy this last view
the sunlight's reflections, the shy fading moon
Many legends told by the jesters
were inspired by the facts
of a time now forever gone
when our friends the elves lived in these lands
when our friends the elves lived in these lands"

OLD AGE OF WONDERS, OF ELVISH EMOTION
PROUDLY SURVIVED IN THE MYST OF THE STARS
MAGICAL DAWNS, HOLY VISION OF ANGELS
LONG TIME BEFORE THE ELVISH WARS
OLD AGE OF WONDERS, OF ELVISH EMOTION
PROUDLY SURVIVED IN THE MYST OF THE STARS
MAGICAL DAWNS, HOLY VISION OF ANGELS
LONG TIME BEFORE ALL
THE ELVISH WARS

"During the first six primordial wars
the elves found shelter between these wild rocks
at that time this region known as Irith
was green, majestic, heaven on earth
When the sixth war was sadly lost
for elves and unicorns this meant the fall
Nekron found a new reign to rule
so woods and flowers decided to die
rivers and falls became suddenly dry
from that time the cold darkness reigned
the darklands became what they are today
the darklands became what they are today"

OLD AGE OF WONDERS, OF ELVISH EMOTION
PROUDLY SURVIVED IN THE MYST OF THE STARS
MAGICAL DAWNS, HOLY VISION OF ANGELS
LONG TIME BEFORE THE ELVISH WARS
OLD AGE OF WONDERS, OF ELVISH EMOTION
PROUDLY SURVIVED IN THE MYST OF THE STARS
MAGICAL DAWNS, HOLY VISION OF ANGELS
LONG TIME BEFORE ALL
THE ELVISH WARS
5. The Myth of the Holy Sword (5:03)
After the victory of the angels over hell
these old lands became a new reason for war
elves and men all united against new darklords
it’s the time of the three elvish wars

During the third one in Galfor’s old mines
Naimur was captured by Atlon, ‘hell’s fury’
he got tortured by the darklord with the emerald stone
and his brother left alone with the bleeding soul

He took the stone
he forged a sword

AND HE ASKED TO THE ANGELS
TO FILL IT WITH MIGHT
SO IT WAS BORN THE MYTH OF THE HOLY SWORD
AND HE ASKED TO THE ANGELS
TO FILL IT WITH MIGHT
SO IT WAS BORN

After some years the elves’ new attack
dramatic battles and rivers of blood
and for Loinir came the chance to avenge Naimur’s death
just a strike of the sword, hell’s last breath

He felt too much power in that blade
he gave it to the wizards to discover why
and the wizards knew right away
that sword could have been a threat
in the hands of the wrong man or darklords

The wizards knew
the stone was filled

WITH THE GLORY OF ANGELS
WHO ENCHANTED THAT BLADE
THEY HIDE IT WELL BEYOND THE IVORY GATES
WITH THE GLORY OF ANGELS
WHO ENCHANTED THAT BLADE
THEY HIDE IT WELL

Vita e morte
spazio e tempo
sulla sacra
lama divina
Vita e morte
spazio e tempo
nel suo verde cuore
di luce pura

You know well what happened then
the Loregard’s warrior and his quest
he was the chosen to find the blade
far beyond the mystic gates
Akron’s army could be stopped
thanks to that holy sword
now it lies somewhere deep
in the Algalord’s raging sea

AND HE ASKED TO THE ANGELS
TO FILL IT WITH MIGHT
SO IT WAS BORN THE MYTH OF THE HOLY SWORD
AND HE ASKED TO THE ANGELS
TO FILL IT WITH MIGHT
SO IT WAS BORN
6. Il Canto Del Vento (3:54)
Ascolto ancora il vento
che in disparte mi accarezza
dimenticato pianto
prigioniero della sera
Pianto, dimenticato pianto
prigioniero della sera
un respiro sempre acceso
seguo e cerco lentamente
nel sospiro del destino

VIVO PER TE, SOGNO DI TE
CANTO DI TE
NEL CIELO INCASTRATA
TIMIDA STELLA MORENTE

Di canzoni dimenticate
dai tuoi occhi gia' vissute
ora vivo e mi consolo... vivo...
Il mio tempo, nelle mani
nel tuo viso il mio tormento
il silenzio, il mio domani
ancorato ad un momento

VIVO PER TE, SOGNO DI TE
CANTO DI TE
NEL CIELO INCASTRATA
TIMIDA STELLA MORENTE

Vissuti dolcemente
sogni di un' eterna notte
ora bruciano traditi
dalle nostre memorie
Lacrime, lacrime di rabbia
nel mio cuore sempre accese
parlano, parlano le onde
di un porto ormai svanito

VIVO PER TE, SOGNO DI TE
CANTO DI TE
NEL CIELO INCASTRATA
TIMIDA STELLA MORENTE
7. Silent Dream (3:50)
The silent storm in my heartbeat
is raging at the questions of soul
no way back, rising darkness
blind angel in a night without stars

Lost in the silent dream
of a lonely broken love

The fall of hope, of illusion
is hidden there behind the wild rocks
to reach the sun, warm my feelings
I'll rise where only eagles can fly

Lost in the silent dream
of a lonely broken love

FLY, FLY HIGH
ENLIGHT MY HEART AND MY EYES
BRING HOPE WITH YOUR HOLY SUNLIGHT
THE ANGELS' FIRE

The silent storm in my heartbeat
is raging the questions of soul
no way back, rising darkness
blind angel in a night without stars

Lost in the silent dream
of a lonely broken love

FLY, FLY HIGH
ENLIGHT MY HEART AND MY EYES
BRING HOPE WITH YOUR HOLY SUNLIGHT
THE ANGELS' FIRE

I'LL BELIEVE
IN WHAT THE WIND BRINGS TO ME
IN PURE LOVE AND GREAT EMOTION
I WILL BELIEVE
8. Bloody Red Dungeons (5:11)
Lost in a sea of rising darkness
fear and devotion meet again
lost between rhymes of mystic splendour
heaven is back to war with hell

Nobody knows who planned that rock trap
wild and ancestral spider's web
evil and dark red bleeding dungeons
threat for the sake of mother earth

Since the black army won its last war
cold is the breath of ancient sin
rites of unhuman dark perversion
sad tragic years lost in the myth

THE SILENT RAGE OF GOD
ETERNAL HOLY CALL
RED SUN AND MOON COLLIDING
FROZEN SOUL

Shades of a velvet wide horizon
fear for a hopeless time to come
fire and ice, the white flame's courage
angels' immortal blazing sun
Lost in a sea of rising darkness
fear and devotion meet again
lost between rhymes of mystic splendour
heaven is back to war with hell

THE SILENT RAGE OF GOD
ETERNAL HOLY CALL
RED SUN AND MOON COLLIDING
FROZEN SOUL

Luna rossa, pianti, paure
rabbia, ira, urla, torture
innocenza persa per sempre
ombre vagano eterne

The silent rage of god, eternal holy call
Holy call

THE SILENT RAGE OF GOD
ETERNAL HOLY CALL
RED SUN AND MOON COLLIDING
FROZEN SOUL
9. Son of Pain (4:43)
[Dargor:]
While I crossed the mountains' side
I recalled a memory
days of anguish nights of pain
your voice lives on trapped inside my mind
eternally

Those wise last words fade in my soul
"You had the choice, you chose the light
find your way darklands' son
spread your wings then your heart will fly"
Thank you, angels
I am now reborn
this may be my last breath
and my final day

I'M THE SON OF PAIN
WELCOME MY NEW FATE

Hell's lost flame was life for me
in that moment I felt free
I was under an evil spell
so now I want just to live again
to live again

I am proud, proud to lead my soul
to new horizons, to the golden sky
"find your way my brave darklands' son
wizards, kings, elves and trolls"
Thank you, angels
I am now reborn
this may be my last breath
and my final day

I'M THE SON OF PAIN
WELCOME MY NEW FATE
THUNDER GODS I PRAY
I DENY HELL'S FLAMES
10. The Mystic Prophecy of the Demonknight (16:26)
Into the darkness they crossed the marsh
and entered the frozen cave
a secret path was cut into the rock
a labyrinth a twisted maze
an unknown misty haze
Open Your heart
then your mind’s eye

Khaas’ eyes focused on the grey rock
he saw it in a different way
the riddle soon would be solved
an illusion was carved in the stone
the arrows show where to go
Trust in yourself
truth awaits you there

Crawling on their hands and knees
dark is their endless journey
so deep the cave of bats
but they will go on and on

THEY ARE THE LAST HOPE
FOR MEN, DRAGONS AND DWARVES
SPIRITS OF THE FORESTS
SHY ELVES AND TROLLS
FIVE GO FROM ELGARD
INTO THE DARKNESS LEAVING THE LIGHT
TO FIND THE BLACK ORDER’S
IMMORTAL DARK RHYMES
TO FIND THE WRITTEN WORDS
BY HELLGOD’S UNHOLY SON
PREVENT HIM FROM RETURNING
AND SAVE THE WHOLE WORLD
THROUGH THE VALLEY OF SIN
LED BY THE WHISPERS OF HOLY WIND
INTO DAR-KUNOR A NEW SAGA BEGINS

The well of dead souls appears, a red river’s flowing inside
there’s no way to cross, there’s no way to climb
they wish they were birds and could fly
fly to the other side
There’s a message
on the dark stone

They discovered a massive dark stone
atop it a riddle inscribed:
“walk in the bloody abyss,
led onward by Nekron’s black will,
find the courage in his name”
Search your conscience
read between those words

“Yes, and now I know. Nekron’s name is all
that we need to solve this mystery”
Iras spoke those holy words

THEY ARE THE LAST HOPE
FOR MEN, DRAGONS AND DWARVES
SPIRITS OF THE FORESTS
SHY ELVES AND TROLLS
FIVE GO FROM ELGARD
INTO THE DARKNESS LEAVING THE LIGHT
TO FIND THE BLACK ORDER’S
IMMORTAL DARK RHYMES
TO FIND THE WRITTEN WORDS
BY HELLGOD’S UNHOLY SON
PREVENT HIM FROM RETURNING
AND SAVE THE WHOLE WORLD
THROUGH THE VALLEY OF SIN
LED BY THE WHISPERS OF HOLY WIND
INTO DAR-KUNOR A NEW SAGA BEGINS

Iras Algor: “And so this new riddle finally revealed itself to me.
The solution lay in Nekron’s name.
In the Nekranos alphabet certain numbers corresponding to the letters of his name
aligned in accordance with black geometry enabling us
to walk on invisible steps across the silent abyss
reaching the other side of the cave.
Unknown horrors awaited us behind those two dark portals”

TARISH: By all the gods of my nordic lands...
we are at the gates of death...
KHAAS: They were built with the severed limbs of humans and elves
DARGOR: ...under the orders of my father Vankar...
LOTHEN: I can feel suffering in every rock...
IRAS: Listen to the silence...
TARISH: That must be the great hall...
DARGOR: The unholy place where the Black Order was born...

Since 5000 years, age of primordial wars
the men of the known world read Nekron’s manuscripts
power, blood and luxury attracted some of them
who denied the gift of light, sealed their bloody faith to...

Hell, Kron and his son
he revealed to them the key to resurrect his soul
he would be the avenger of his death
Nekron once dead would survive in their faith

HERE THEY CAME
TO PRAY FOR HIM
A NEW BLACK ORDER
DAR-KUNOR WAS
A GATHERING OF FOOLS
EVIL SEED FOR NEW
TRAGIC WARS

Sacrifice of innocents, darkest rites with human flesh
this was written in the books seven like the sins of men
but horror fills the one that keeps the most terrible prophecy
with it Nekron gave the key to awaken him from sleep

Sad, dark, prophecy
our heroes have to find it
or the world will suffer
the last book contains another key
All the wizards know
The seventh book’s the only jope

THERE MAY BE A KEY
IN THE SEVENTH BOOK
A MESSAGE FOR THE EVIL ORDER
HOW TO HIDE
THE ANGELS’ RHYMES
SO THEY NEVER WILL BE SEEN AGAIN

KHAAS: Great lords of thunder...the seventh lost book...there...
upon the altar...
DARGOR: Yes...that is the book...I am sure of it!
I’ve heard my father describe it many times...
TARISH: Let us take it and leave this godforsaken place...
IRAS: ...the legendary evil book is now in our hands...
let us make haste...this was too easy

ALL TOGETHER: What are these noises?
What’s happening...what’s going on?
IRAS: Removing it has awakend some nameless horror
KHAAS: ...let us leave here now...

TARISH: Look...there! ...hands coming up from the ground...
ALL TOGETHER: Ahhh...come on...get away from here...let’s move!

Scene di vita, eroica memoria
verso la luce della speranza
nel cieco oblio della lor fuga
nel grigio limbo tra vita e morte

“Fleeing through the labyrinths with the hordes of the living dead
fast upon them
once again they found themselves trapped in front of the abyss.
But with no time to think about black geometry
they leaped into the red river
for any death would have been better than the one waiting for them
created by the hungry creatures of darkness”

Ossa e fango
ma il respiro c’ e’

Covered by skulls and bones
in Hargor’s marsh they found a way to hide
from the sons of darkness
who betrayed the angels’ light

THEY ARE THE LAST HOPE
FOR MEN, DRAGONS AND DWARVES
SPIRITS OF THE FORESTS
SHY ELVES AND TROLLS
FIVE WENT FROM ELGARD
INTO THE DARKNESS LEAVING THE LIGHT
TO FIND THE BLACK ORDER’S
IMMORTAL DARK RHYMES
TO FIND THE WRITTEN WORDS
BY HELLGOD’S UNHOLY SON
PREVENT HIM FROM RETURNING
AND SAVE THE WHOLE WORLD
FINALLY OUT OF THE DARK
THEY SEE THE LIGHT OF THE MOON
THEY STOLE FROM DAR-KUNOR

Nekron's bloody shadow
lives on in his dark words
Hargor knows what happened
now it's time to run fast
before they come

Run valiant heroes and hide
the dark words of hellgod's last son

Then they found the river
that led them to Fenor
onward down to Orin
Orin was their shelter
now they were safe

Triumph or agony depends on how
you will use those words

Orin opened its grey walls, Hanos received them
one of the wise kings who believed in the order's plan
to save the known world
After a long deserved rest they went forth in the dawn
their way back would be long

The evil forces are planning the worst act in the history of these lands
what this book could reveal to them it's divine help

"Soon the black book will be opened with consequences beyond any nightmare.
Be ready to face its evil revelations.
Today, at the whisper of the darkest winds, a new saga begins!"

[Eloin:]
"Pass through our middle forests safely, old friend,
my heart goes with you beyond mountains and oceans
I see what fate has decreed, I see it in the holy stars.
The seizure of Nekron's book is only the beginning
of a great adventure and we shall meet again.
We shall defend our beloved earth.
Myth and legend ride with you!"
