Fruits and Flowers of the Spectral Garden Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Intro: The Gathering (2:08)
2. The Ogre Lord (4:45)
Spawned by frost wastelands
Out of ice and snow and shadows born
The legions that now stand ready
The fight and die for the Ogre Lord

The hordes of darkness are gathered
Their songs of war are heard afar
The drums of doom are pounding
Sacrifice to please the gods of war and wrath

Spill the entrails
Read the signs
The gods are pleased
With the sacrifice

Fires in the horizon
Black smoke fills the moonlit sky
Pounding, pounding thunder hooves
Like beasts out of hell these demons ride

Under the fullmoon they gladly die
For the Ogre Lord
3. The Golem (4:15)
See me walk...
I'm a blasphemy
Made not by god
But the power of his name i live

Look into my eyes
Empty and hollow...
What you see
Is my unholy soul

I am a result of necromantical arts
A body of clay, a stone is my heart
I am the Golem

See my limbs
Behold the scorn
Of creation
I don't want to be

With heavy steps
I stride the earth
Towards my end
I walk...
4. The Witches Rune (7:10)
Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.

Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined.

Harpier cries 'Tis time, 'tis time.

Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and night has thirty-one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bouble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and toungue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bouble.

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Call of goat, and slips of yew
Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.

Coll it with baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

O well done! I commend your pains;
And every one shall share i' the gains;
And now about the cauldron sing,
Live elves and fairies in a ring,
Enchanting all that you put in.

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Whoever knocks!
5. Thanatos (3:35)
I am ready
I am waiting for you
Come whenever it pleases you
By my bed, a lock of my hair
I have said farewell
I won't despair

I've heard your steps
Outside the door
What keeps you waiting?
I was so sure
Now it is time for me to go beyond
Come now, with your torch
Turn it upside down

Dark and gloomy
He comes to us
He takes us to
The underworld
We're his sheep
He is the herd

Peace and silence
He brings to us
At the end of the life

He turns his torch
Upside down
And spreads his wings...
6. Nightstalker (3:44)
The autumn leaves are gently dancing
Upon the soil in which i lie
My place of rest for the living hidden
Far away from their prying eyes
Summoned by the monn ascending
Toward the surfice i slowly rise
To once again stroll the path of darkness
Crimson coloured it before me lies

I won't brake the masquerade
As i stalk my pray at night
Death comes swift and silent my dear
You won't feel the bite
And when the morning finally comes
Draind from blood you will be found
A withered flower in an alleyway
Under a shroud of frost, blaek and pale

In my tomb, my haven dark
I wait in dreamless sleep
The day to pass, the dusk to come
The time to leave my keep
7. I.M.A. (4:34)
Sprinkle eyes with grains of sand
Follow me into my land
Sleep now, child, close your eyes
Take my hand and away we fly

Here ends reality as you know it
The night is here with a gift for you
You've heard them whisper in the closet
You've seen them lurk under your bed

Here ends reality as you know that
You're on your own on the dreampath now
Grains of sand in your eyes and
You float away, so far away

Now i lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
If i should die before i wake
I pray the lord my soul to take

You fade from reality
No string attached
In my arms
No turning back
You float away
So far away
8. Stigmata (3:33)
Carry my soul on the
Black wings of your ecstasy
Lift it up high
Towards the heavens in blasphemy
I am what i am
What i forever will be
In the name of Jesus Christ
Bleed for me!


Carry my soul on the
Black wings of your ecstasy
The death of an angel
The sacrifice of purity
Impaled by faith
Desecrated is your sanctuary
In Hoc Signo
Bleed for me!


Behold the sign in my hand
I hold the key to the wonderland
The path is clear I'll lead the way
Follow me and don't walk astray
And if you really loves me true
Can i ask one thing from you
Show your love for all to see
Will you bleed for me
9. Spectral Garden (4:24)
Rotten trees with twisted boughs
Cast their shadows upon the ground
Where dead birds feathers and autumn leaves
Lie scattered by the midnight breeze

In this garden of endless night
Unseen by living, untouched by light
In this garden by time forgotten
Shadows prosper by death begotten

In the fog with a reek of a thousand graves
Faceless figures move grotesque and deranged
A dance macabre through this cursed domain
To a gruesome chant of sighs and wails

In this limbo beyond all dreams
Next to hell lies this sepulchral scene
Where spectres grieve their death eternal
A gloomy purgatory, dark, internal
10. Sombre Angel (7:50)
Silent wailing
Over the morgue
Silent whispering
Please tell me more

Access denied
Death is still a dream
I'm forced to remain
In this hollow reality

Silent laughters
From the graves
Silent temptations
The dead are free

Moving slowly,
Towards the tombs
Give me the password
To enter this womb

Sombre Angel-The key is in your hand
Silent Angel-My entrance i demand
Sombre Angel-Guardian of the final gate
Sombre Angel-Let me fulfil my fate

Sombre Angel
With your black wings hold me
Let darkness surround me
Let me sleep
Let me dream

Silent tears
In this sombre dreamland
Silent awareness
Will you now take my hand?
11. Where Roses Never Die (4:07)
Where roses never die
Another life, another try
Beyond the mountains, beyond the fields
My fortune is waiting for me
Another life... Another life...
Another life, another try
Where roses never die
Another life, another try

Beyond the forest of forever more...
Beyond the seas without shores...
Beyond the horizon of eternity
My fortune is waiting for me
So bright... So bright
I enter the tunnel of light
Where roses never die
Another life... I'm gonna try...

Sunshine fades and shadows fall
But sweet remembrance outlasts all...
12. Outro: The Withering (1:48)
