Lemuria Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DJ-Arin
1. Typhon (4:36)
Typhon is alive - Descending with allies
From the mountain of the snake – In the deepest night of Pan
Typhon will return – With Erebos and Nyx
And a vision of the storm – And the Ocean and Tethys

[Chorus:]
The Dragon breaks the temple wall
The Flood will drown our gods
Break down the wall
And let another kingdom rise
The castle of Olympia
Is shaking by the storm
The King lost his crown
And now the wall is tumbling down

Typhon overthrow – the throne of Father Zeus
The creation of the gods – And the order of Mankind
Typhon is alive- Descending with allies
And the empires will fear – All the power of ther wrath

[chorus]
2. Uthark Runa (4:42)
Hail, hail, hail the mystery!
Uthark – Code of secrecy
Frey, Frey – God of ecstasy
Rise, rise from Ginnungagap

[chorus:]
Enter the path of Runa
And drink from the well of Urd
Taste the fruits of Iduna
Decipher the signs from the north

Hail, hail – God of mysteries!
Hail, Frey, your prosperity
Come forth from the depth of Ur
Rise, rise from eternity

[chorus repeat]

[Uthark Runa, Galdra:]
UruR
Thurs
AnsuR
Raidho
Kaun
Uthark
Runa
MannaR
LaguR
IngwaR
DagaR
Odal
Fehu

Life is eternal for you
When you pass the gate of Hel
(And) come to the end of the row
(Where you find)
The Beast and the God conjoined
3. Three Ships Of Berik Part 1: Calling To Arms And Fighting The Battle (3:20)
[Acording to the Roman storyteller Jordanes, the Gothic Tribes gatheres unter the flag of their leader Berik. From their Motherland up in the North they sailed away with three ships to invade the christian Rome like pagan crusaders. The crew on the three ships were ancestors of three legendary Gothic tribes calles Ostrogoths, Visigoths and Gepids. The christian Rome empire feared the Goths and monks identified the Goths with Gog, a heathen chief mentioned the Bible. The Gothic king Theoderik founded his kingdom in Italy year 488 CE. Althoug the aristocracy of Italy and Spain often claimed their heritage back to the Goth the word gothic was later assciated with darkness and paganism. The Gothic god was Wotan or -odin and his spear insired fear and terror. During the Romanticism the Gothic art was revalued and become synonyme with art and inspiration. The renaissance of the Gothic spirit have made the three ships of Berik sail once again.]

[Lyrics by Thomas Karlsson]
[Music by Christofer Johnsson]

[Leitmotif of the Gothic Army]

Jordanes told us the story.
Yes, of Berik!

[Berik, the Gothic King:]
„Gather all the Ostrogoths
And Visigoths!
Ride like an arctic storm
Across the world!“

[Leitmotif of the Gothic Army]

Gather all the Gothic tribes, all the sons of Berik
On three ships you sail away on a pagan crusade
Tyrants of the christian world fear you more than their God
Theoderik, gothic King: „Gog iste gothus est“

The flashing spear of the sublime
Is flying in the air
Like the fear of the divine
The goths are everywhere

[Leitmotif of the Gothic Army]
4. Three Ships Of Berik Part 2: Victory! (0:44)
[The Triumph March of the Gothic Army]

[Finale]
5. Lemuria (4:15)
In the ocean, deep down
Under raging waves, wrapped in memories, you'll find
Wrecks of stately ships, they all went astray

Captain, did you find
Land of Mu, Eldorado for the seaman?
Or did you sink in dreams (and) lose your ship
In the Sirens' symphony?

When the sailman's sailing away
He shows that the dream of Lemuria is true
A land lost he will find again
Hear the call from the depth of the anemone song
Do you dare to enter the ship?
Hear the call from below of an underwater world
Land of Mu is close to the stars
In the arms of the sea you will live as hypnotized

Call of Narayana, the seven-headed on
Lemuria, rise!

When the sailman's sailing away
He shows that the dream of Lemuria is true
A land lost he will find again
Hear the call from the depth of the anemone song
Do you dare to enter the ship?
Hear the call from below of an underwater world
Land of Mu is close to the stars
In the arms of the sea you will live as hypnotized
6. Quetzalcoatl (3:48)
One day in (the) Maya calendar
The Winter Solstice is open
Like a gate to the Plumped Serpent
For the Maya and the Toltec he return

[chorus:]
Sol volverá, en la costa vimos su luz
Quetzalcoatl
Oh Señor del Sol!

Ride on Quetzalcoatl and you will reach another day
When Capricon will change the world
Enter into 2012
Ancient forecast of the Maya will be true

[chorus repeat]
7. The Dreams Of Swedenborg (4:58)
Wake up in the darkest hour!
Angels are surrounding you
In the borderland of heaven
Lucid are yor dreams tonight

Open a door, a gate in a dream
(The) dead will pass by to show you the sky

[chorus:]
Astral presence everywhere
In the dreams of Swedenborg
He could see across the sky
Through the boundaries of time
Lucid dreams and astral sight
In the dreams of Swedenborg
Every part of universe's
Corresponding to the world

Dream a vision clear and splendid
When you visit afterlife
Daedalus Hyperboreus
Delinate the astral world

Write all your dreams in your diary
Give to the world a glimpse of the sky

[chorus repeat]
8. An Arrow From The Sun (5:55)
[Solo soprano:]
Sunshine hides behind a cloud
[Bass/Tenor:]
Eiwar!
[Solo soprano:]
There's no light for us to see
[Bass/Tenor:]
Eiwar!
[Solo soprano:]
But a ray is breaking through
[Bass/Tenor:]
Eiwar!
[Solo soprano:]
The ignorance of human mind
[Bass/Tenor:]
Eiwar!

On Olympia the sun is born
Radiating from god Apollo
From the utmost North arrived a mankind
And he took a spark, a shaft of light

Arrows from the sun, they penetrate the human mind
Sophia is born when we catch one of these
Arrows from the sun, they burn the soul and make us see
Him who took the spark: Abaris Eiwar

Eiwar, Eiwar, take an arrow from the sun
Abaris, pilgrim from the regions of darkness

when you catch the sun, you'll ride a beam
All across the world, in every place
Like Abaris did, he took the spark
As a riding broom; a magic world

Arrows from the sun will penetrate the human mind
Sophia is born when we catch on of these
Arrows from the sun, they bunr the soul and make us see
Deep inside the maze: the Psyche, the soul

An arrow from the sun is like a sceptre in your hand
A key to time and space, to joureys within
Arrows form the sun will open up your beating heart
Sophia will shine when they hit your soul

Eiwar, Eiwar, take an arrow from the sun
Abaris, pilgrim from the regions of darkness
Eiwar, Eiwar, bend the bow now and shoot now
Abaris, bowman, shoot an arrow from the sun
9. Abraxas (5:22)
Eros and Thanatos are brances on the same old tree
Rooted in the soil of shadow and light
If God was seperated from the dark twin, the Devil
Could he ever know the soul of mankind?

We want a new god called Abraxas!

Enter the Pleroma and see that nothingless is all
And you must destroy a world to be born
Alpha and Omega are the beginning and the end
United in the shape of Abraxas

Darkness and the light
Sermones ad Mortous, empty fullness
Abraxas, your words is a riddle to be solved

You bear the mark of Cain
And you are fighting like a bird
(To) free you from the egg, the egg is all the world
The Sermon to the Dead
A gospel to another life
Hear the words of Cain, the sinner and the saint
The grave is a flower
And you are dying to be born
Baptized by fire and you will slough your skin
The sign of Abraxas
The circle of the solar year
Deep in the winter you'll see the sun be born
10. Feuer Overture / Prometheus Entfesselt (4:39)
Ersteig' den höchsten Berg
Trotze des Zeus Gesetz
Stiel die Feuerfackel
Schenke sie dem Menschengeschlecht

Des Prometheus Funke
Ward zur Menschenseele
In Ketten schlug ihn Zeug
An den Fels im Kaukasus

[chorus:]
Prometheus Fessel
Sie sei gelöst!
Prometheus Kette
Erlöst den Gott eur' Seele
Prometheus Fessel
Sie sei gelöst!
Prometheus steig' auf
Dem Adler und Rauche gleich

Zeus straft die Menschheit mit
(Der) Büchse der Pandora
Aber Herakles Kraft
Entfesselt den Titanen

Gewunden im Leid
Doch fühlst es kaum
Du stahlst der Sonne Feuer
Erleustest der Menschen Nacht

[chorus repeat]

[English translation]

Fire Overture / Prometheus unleashed

Climb the highest mountain
Defy Zeus's law
Steal the torch
Give it to mankind

Prometheus's spark
Became a human soul
Zeus enchained him
On a rock in the Caucasus Mountains

Prometheus's chain
It be unfastened!
Prometheus's chain
Release the god of your soul
Prometheus's chain
It be unfastened!
Prometheus rise
Like the eagle and the smoke

Zeus punishes mankind with
Pandora's box
But Herakles's strength
Unleashes the Titan

Bound in suffering
But you hardly feel it
You stole the fire of the sun
You enlighten mankind's night
