Schwarzalbenheim Lyrics

5. Schwarzalbenheim (5:18)
Track rating :  100 / 100      Votes :  1     
[Gold Der Underwelt]

[The dwarves and the black elves live below the ground and in stumps and stones. Among all creatures in the universe they are the foremost blacksmiths. Deep down in the underworld they forge the treasures of gods. They use the metals from the veins of earth to create the most precious things. It has been said that this folk may be able to teach you the secret of alchemy and the knowledge of making gold out of earth.]

Höret ihr der Hämmer Hall?
Hör der Hämmer Hall!
Ivaldens Söhne sind es, hör
Sie schmieden den gleissend' Schatz
Der Götter Göttlichkeit

Schwarzalbenheims Gewürm
Schmiedet solch schimmerndes Gold
Der Götter Glorie gestaltend
Aus der Erde Geäder

Tief unten drunter Stein und Wurz
Findest Du dieses selten' Volk
Der Tiefe und lass den eifr'gen Schmied
Schweissen shlau deines Wunschses Bild

Unter unterdes Fjorgyn Haut
In der Erde verborg nem Herzen
Arbeiten Zwerge der Unterwelt
Mit der Götter gar glänzendem Gold

Draupnir, Mjölnir und Gullburste
Kunst des Schwarzalben
Brokk da Eitre und Sindre
Lass den Hammer schlagem nochmals

Schwarzalbenheims Gewürm
Schmiedet solch schimmerndes Gold
Der Götter Glorie gestaltend
Aus der Erde Geäder

In den Tunneln und den Höhlen
Gleich 'nem Myzelium im Untergrund
Treiben sie voran die Alchemie
Die der Erde Früchte Schein verleihn

Erinnerungen erschaffend
Aus weiter Ferne zu Goldene
Träume des Morgen zu schaffen
Götter Runen aus der Erde Tiefe
Sonn' erblühn!

[English translation]

World of the Black Elves

[Gold of the underworld]

Do you hear the hammers' echo?
Hear the the hammers' echo!
It's Ivalden's sons, listen,
They forge the gleaming treasure
The gods' divineness

Schwarzalbenheim's worms
Forge so gleaming gold
Shaping the glory of the gods
From the veins of the earth

Deep beneath stones and roots
You find this rare folk
Of the depth and let the eager smith
Smartly weld the picture of your wish

Meanwhile beneath Fjorgyn's skin
In the earth's hidden heart
The dwarves of the underworld work
With the gleaming gold of the gods

Draupnir, Mjölnir and Gullburste
Art of the Black Elves
Brokk da Eitre and Sindre
Let the hammer strike again

Schwarzalbenheim's worms
Forge so gleaming gold
Shaping the glory of the gods
From the veins of the earth

In the tunnels and the caves
Like a mycelium in the underground
They press ahead the Alchemy
Which gives shine to the earth's fuits

Creating memories
From far distance to create golden
Dreams of tomorrow
The gods' runes from the depth's
Sun of the earth blossom
