Dies Irae – Lacrimosa Lyrics
Cursed shall be he who in his heart believeth to be above Him
For we are blind in these black seas of infinity, unable to correlate what we perceive
And when Light shall shine upon the Earth, men shall devour each other
For it shall be Darkness to their eyes, an abiding eclipse of divine nature
Did the very process of creation not imply a degradation of the essence of God?
Is it not in itself a divine tragedy? An inconceivable act which must be undone?
Dies irae dies illa,
Dies tribulationis et angustiae,
Dies calamitatis et miseriae,
Dies tenebrarum et caliginis,
Dies nebulae et turbinis,
Dies tubae et clangoris super civitates munitas et super angulos excelsos
For unto which deity have you given prayer?
A fool, frail entity which has chained your soul!
Thus, the execution is effortless – a mere gesture of form
Life itself being already trapped and weakened
The very threads of its existence being the nature of its downfall
For they’ve been poisoned by the black tumour of His Will…
And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD; and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
And it is in a moment of blinding darkness
That thou shall know the name of the LORD
Holiest of Holy! - Fallen Divinity! - Fire Unworldly!
Carved in a gold phosphorous dagger
Thrust within the core of every man’s heart!
When the last remnants of false hope lie in dreams ethereal
Tears of the despairing man turn to stone and ash
For then remains nothing of a once so seemingly vivid dream
A blissful eternity reduced to Naught
