Nachthymnen (From the Twilight Kingdom)

Unleashed Axe-Age
Ancient!.. We invoke
The polarities are united as one
We are united as one
By oaths once sworn - By blood
The powers of darkness are unleashed
Fire of Surt engulfes the world
Fenrir unbound..
Midgard drowned by the sea
Let Naglfar be launched..
The chains of Fenrir are rent asunder
And the wolf shall course about
An axe-age, a sword-age..
Come forth to receive the mark of fate
And prepare yourself for battle

The sun shall darken
Vapour and fire shall rage together
Till the leaping flame licks heaven itself..
That the earth will be renewed in splendour
And Surt shall endure 
As Baldur endures
..For the powers of darkness are eternal
The twilight has come
The dawn breaks in the east
The world is alive
Loki lives upon the earth
It is done..
The fire engulfs the earth
Fenrir is free - The stars are falling

Scars in the Landscape of God
I'm the one behind the shadows
Tyrant of damnation
Believer in war
I will build the bridge of hate
To walk on Pagan ways
In the light of the moon
..Hate in my heart
I wander through fire
To the valley of the shadow
I summon my inner self 
To strengthen my final will
I will destroy the promised land of god
To set the mighty flame
Flame - Thou of wisdom the greatest
And to rise the hidden words
The words of ancient knowledge
The scars in the wind
Guide my path to the dark
Into my cold frozen reality

..This is the dawn of the final war
The victory is written in my flesh
I laugh as my enemies fall
And the sun will retire
Into the darkness of the night

Reborn through the Gates of Three Moons
I enter the gates..
Into the realm where nothing dies
But I'm still so cold inside
By visions past and gone
Till the end of time
I will eternally dwell

Im dunkelsten der Stürme
Falle zusammen die Kerkerwand
Die mich schier endlos band
Und herrlicher und freier walle
Meine Seele ins unbekannte Land

In the darkest of storms
May crumble the dungeonwall
That bound me almost endlessly
And delightful and free may pilgrimage
My soul into the unknown land
I fly with the raven

Through timeless spheres of frost..
Through wasted lands of dreams

Geflohen vor der Wirklichkeit
Vor Ewigkeiten
Und jenseits der Schwärze erstreckt sich
Ein unendliches Meer aus Grau..
Ein Meer aus gestaltloser Leere
Doch die Qualen und der Schmerz verbleiben
Als Erinnerungen an die vergangene Zeit
Stolz und doch verzweifelt
Und in meinem Innersten hoffe ich
Daß mein Leben nur ein Traum ist..

Fled from reality - For eternities
And on the other side of the blackness
An endless sea of greyness extends..
A sea of formless emptiness
Yet the misery and the pain remain
As memories of passed time
Proud yet desperate
And deep inside 
I hope that my life is just a dream
The moon is my blanket
In this cold domain
So ancient - So cold
As a nightmare creature I crawl
Awakened from my sleep
To forever be..
Bei den drei Monden durch Mittwinters Tore
By the three moons through midwinter's gates
I'm a shadow on haunted ground
Laughing in sorrow..
Crying in lust..
The storm is calming and death is rising
Evil - As pure as night
Proud - Full of sin
Once again I'll rise
To survive eternity

Wartend auf einen schmerzlosen Tod
Die Flammen der Hölle sind nichts
Verglichen mit diesem Leben
Voll von wundenleckendem Licht
Umgeben von Grausamkeiten names Menschen
Keinen Tropfen Blut wert
Meine Seele entschwand dieser Welt
Vor langer Zeit
Aber der immerwährende Haß band meinen Körper
An diese Dimension
Ich wandere rastlos und leer
Auf der Suche nach Erlösung und Harmonie
Wissend, daß diese Suche sinnlos ist, endlos
Jemand hatte die Macht
Und raubte mir die letzte Hoffnung
Den Mut diesen Schmerz zu beenden, mein Leben
Mein Wunsch könnte erfüllt werden

Hinwegschwinden, sanft und sicher
Auf Winterflügeln in die letzte
Und ewige Dunkelheit
In der Eiswinde durch mein Haar streifen

Waiting for a painless death
The flames of hell are nothing
Compared to this life
Full of woundlicking light
Surrounded by atrocities called humans
Not worth a drop of blood

My soul left this world
A long time ago
But the everlasting hate 
Bound my body to this dimension
I wander restless and empty
Seeking deliverance and harmony
Knowing that this search has no use 
Someone had the power
And robbed the last hope from me
The courage to end this misery, my life
My wish could be fulfilled
Fade away, softly and certain
On winterwings in the last
And eternal darkness
In the icewind blow through my hair

As Astral Images Darken Reality
Kometen sind brennende Seelen
Die zur Strafe durch den 
Kosmos ziehen müßen
Comets are burning souls
That have to travel 
Through the cosmos for punishment
Nothing disturbs this transcendental harmony
The only light that breaks up darkness
Are the burning red stars
Cosmic winds bear a waft
Of a gigantic psychic force
That the nineth dimension
Colossal deep universe holds
And opens for me..
Desolation in purest shape
Neither melodies, nor cries
Resound in this cold silence
Nevertheless I feel 
The endless echo of melancholy
No mountain, no tree, no lake
But an endless wasteland of stones and ice
Forms this realm where no king was ever born
Because no life exists which can be ruled
Here is the destination of my astral journey
The only place where I find peace
So I leave the world behind
And replace earthbound grey
To interstellar black

I leave the world behind!

The Dark Kiss

Buried beneath forgotten cryptic stones
Enshrined in silence
Embraced by darkness
Belonging to the hidden ancient race
Am I still dead but dreaming
Awaiting my time of resurrection
Reminisce of a day long ago in past
When I was blessed with the dark kiss
The gift which immortalized me once
Oh.. I do remember the taste of hot blood
Which was running upon my white face
To moisten my dry lips
With a burning kiss of mortality
..A burning kiss of mortality
My eyes are blazing red in the night
Leather wings adorn my huge back
My fangs are sharp as frozen steel
Prepared to caress thy beloved neck
I rise from the tombworld
Folding out my wings..
Flying up high through the nocturnal sky
Looking for creatures who are worthy
To get the dark kiss
And to satisfy my hunger for blood
During this night
I do feel again the taste of hot blood
My fangs are mutilating thy sweet flesh
It's the painful bite of the dark kiss
Vampires kiss
Blut ist Leben..
..The blood is the life

I Face the Eternal Winter

Flying silent on winter wings
Flowing emotions from my bleeding soul
Tears that flow 
Burn my skin
I'm drifting away..
On the cold wave of desolation
I'm touching the wind as it sadly sings
Carried to the distant unknown
Eternity awaits me..
My heart is so cold
Emotions reached their freezing point
..Only pure hate
Lost all that I was living for
Crying without sound
Thy sky has frozen to ice
As the last drops of blood leave my body
I hear the winter breath
I'm the face of the night
I'm all alone..
The fullmoon is glowing
Snow falls from the sky
I feel the eternal winter
Holocaust winds are rising
Like a dark Northern breeze
My cryptic journey has just begun

Revealed Secrets of the Whispering Moon

..And so my mind is calm
Ready for the darkest eons
Candlelight caresses my eyes
Incense smoke displaces soiled air
This trip is part of an endless journey
I'm Satan and Satan is me
Finding myself through this experience
Wash away all that ever was..
My life is a funeral ceremony
As I march through the mortals' graves
I obey deepest inner instincts
And gain the endless power of darkness
To place the seed of evil
Right in the heart of the earth
..And all ancient power 
Manifests as shadows
Which darken not only my heart and soul
But the holy light of all 
That dare to stand
Against the forces of the black flame

In der Nacht als der 
Mond tausend Gesichter hatte
Offenbarte sich mir das Geheimnis
Und anstatt der Haut in der..
Menschen Gesichter
Sah ich nur dunkles Spinnennetzgeflecht

In the night 
When the moon had a thousand faces
The secret was revealed to me..
And instead of the skin 
In the human faces
I saw only dark spiderwebs

A Frozen Soul in a Wintershadow

Wolves are howling 
To honour the moon
My heart belongs to the past
I feel attraction for the night
My mind to the ancient times
I wander through the fields 
Where blood was split
Awaiting the reign
Of the dark and the cold
I can feel the creatures of the night
My dreams are no illusions
So I travel between these worlds
My soul is frozen - Evil rules my mind
Able to face the eternal night
Why am I born into this world
..Soon I will leave
Into the sleep of death - Never to return
My life is just
A darkened silent barricade
Between all I ever wanted to be
I will enter the other side
To fly on the wings of death
To ride with the wind to the ancient times
To fade away to a blackened spiral
To see eternity
To be a wintershadow out of time
