AT THE GATES LYRICS

1. Der Widerstand


[Instrumental]



2. To Drink From The Night Itself


Out of ruins obscured
Unveiling Stygian art
Our naked and cynical stare
As we drink from the night itself

Eternal madness
Eternal myth
Reconstruction from within

The tyranny of chaos
Inside repression's eye

In the book of dead names
From skepticism born
Enshrouded with our wretched hopes
As we drink from the night itself

Eternal madness
Eternal myth
Reconstruction from within

Frozen resonated visions
Masked in comforting lies
With seducing rhythm blessed
As all opposition dies

Out of ruins obscured
Unveiling Stygian art
Our naked and cynical stare
As we drink from the night itself

Eternal madness
Eternal myth
Reconstruction from within
Eternal slumber
Eternal sleep
Reconstruction from within

As we drink from the night itself
As we drink from the night itself
As we drink from the night itself


3. A Stare Bound In Stone


Through the fall of creation
A death mask transforms the past
The contours of a labyrinth emerge

As dusk it clings to silent stone
Dead to all future generations

Let their strength now dissolve
The sun to me is dark forever
A nihilistic urge
As death thickens in their throats

Like fragments of silent fires
Like fragments of silent fires

The distorted hierarchies
Under boiling clouds
A cold stare, bound in stone
Behind the curtain of dust

As dusk it clings to silent stone
Immortalizing the suppression

Let their strength now dissolve
The sun to me is dark forever
A nihilistic urge
As death thickens in their throats

Featureless, elusive
Drowning in the silent black
Obsession like wildfire inhaled

Like fragments of silent fires
Like fragments of silent fires
Like fragments of silent fires
Like fragments of silent fires
Like fragments of silent fires


4. Palace Of Lepers


Reverberating choirs
A sea of faces black
A leviathan, in iron dreams entrapped

From the throat of pandemonium
An unrelenting scourge
Bible black, archaic madness writhes

The lingering
Presence of
Inescapable death

Into the palace of lepers
Citadel of disease
Into the palace of lepers

Fathomless the craters
Fanaticism masked
The phantasm, now drowning in ash

Aesthetics reproducing
A hierarchy intact
Propaganda, blind serpent's dance

The lingering
Presence of
Inescapable death

Into the palace of lepers
Citadel of disease
Into the palace of lepers

A clawing nightmare blind
A grinning march of death
A clawing nightmare blind
A grinning march of death

A grinning march of death

Chants reverberate
Through these halls
The corridors of doom
Chants reverberate
Through these halls
The corridors of doom


5. Daggers Of Black Haze


Masked in merciful weakness
A tribute of ritual prey
The frozen surface cracks
Dressed in iconic grace
Bottomless the void veiled in smoke
Floods the pit of dreams
The martyrdom of perfection
A phantom construction dead

The anesthesia of repetition
Let monotony and isolation reign
Will our persistence fade like daggers?
(Daggers) daggers of black haze

Mute now, the anthems and dogmas
Cynicism reproduced
The reliefs watch unseen
In winding and rigid shapes
An ideology solidified
The fragments lost in time
From within inaccessible walls
Their elitism starves us blind

Unending eyes, they watch unseen
Starving for themselves in me

Masked in merciful weakness
A tribute of ritual prey
The frozen surface cracks

Mute now, the anthems and dogmas
Cynicism reproduced
The reliefs they watch unseen

Will our persistence fade like daggers?
(Daggers) daggers of black haze

(Daggers) daggers of black haze

(Daggers, daggers) daggers of black haze


6. The Chasm


Born of disharmonic sermons
Phenomena of the deep
Torn apart by phantom pains
In shadows veiled, our tomb

A language dead and dissonant
Awakened from its sleep
The ever-opening flower
This pantheon of doom

As we open the chasm
The sleepless, ravenous void
From the vortex of poisonous coldness
Starving and blind, they storm

Crowned with unimagined death
Encircled, under siege
The black impious gulfs
Where no dreams reach

The blind rage of our revolution
As we drown in these halls
Blasphemous, fathomless
Manifested within these walls

As we open the chasm
The sleepless, ravenous void
From the vortex of poisonous coldness
Starving and blind, they storm

Crowned with unimagined death
Encircled, under siege
The black impious gulfs
Where no dreams reach

Culture of shapeless dreams
Abysmal fevered seas
(Prismatic distortions)
Culture of shapeless dreams
(Prismatic distortions)

Crowned with unimagined death
(Abysmal fevered seas)
Encircled, under siege
The black impious gulfs
(Culture of shapeless dreams)
Where no dreams reach


7. In Nameless Sleep


The distortion, ceremonial
Apathy shaped like a cage
The poisonous cauldron
Emptied with feverish rage

As transparency tears
Through the dead, pungent air
Like storms from the dying past
Frozen circles of timeless despair

In a blur of black wings
They storm out of the past
Infested with the promise of death
Infested with eternal death

The procession never ending
The fatalistic void
In oblivion cloaked
Men forever shaped out of clay

In blind hallucination
Their irreversible truth
Rituals hedonistic
Resignation designed from above

In a blur of black wings
They storm out of the past
Infested with eternal death

In a blur of black wings
They storm out of the past
Infested with the promise of death
Infested with eternal death

Perfection dressed in crippled dreams
Dead rhythms, sharpened to the obscene

On fevered wings
Awakened from our nameless sleep
On fevered wings
Eternal death, to the lords of the keep

In a blur of black wings
They storm out of the past
Infested with eternal death

In a blur of black wings
They storm out of the past
Infested with the promise of death


8. The Colours Of The Beast


A hunger unleashed
Annihilating black
Born of crippling doom
In oppressive silence masked

Their truth carves a void
A night that never ends
Starving for the dawn
Ravenous, from nightmares born

In monolithic forms
Dressed in the colours of the beast
Stone flood
Into the sinister dawn
Cloaked in dust
The columns wavering

Words like guillotines
Clawing at your solid walls
On your darkness they feed
Phrases cut like sharpened teeth

Phrases cut like sharpened teeth
Phrases cut like sharpened teeth

Born of crippling doom
In oppressive silence masked

In monolithic forms
Dressed in the colours of the beast
Stone flood
Into the sinister dawn
Cloaked in dust
The columns wavering blind

Dressed in the colours of the beast


9. A Labyrinth Of Tombs


The pantheons blind
Ravaged from thirst
They tear through the skies
Through the blackest of nights

Violating rhythms
Far beneath dead waves
The shards of our culture
Abandoned and arcane

Our grave is the darkness
Our own oblivion
The silence pregnant
With a labyrinth of tombs

The ghost of man
Haunts our ravaged tomb
In this labyrinth of our doom

Disharmonic rapture
From forbidden depths
The cabbalistic scriptures
Engraved eternal death

And the pantheons blind
Still tear through the blackest of nights

The ghost of man
Haunts our ravaged tomb
In this labyrinth of our doom

Hunger
The ghost of man
Eternal
Haunts our ravaged tomb
In this labyrinth of our doom

Hunger
The pantheons
Eternal
Ravaged and blind
Hunger
A labyrinth of tombs

Hunger
They tear through the skies
Eternal
Through the blackest of nights
Hunger
A labyrinth of tombs

Hunger
They tear through the skies
Hunger
Through the blackest of nights
Hunger
A labyrinth of tombs

This labyrinth of our doom
This labyrinth of our doom


10. Seas Of Starvation


The voiceless, the blind
The cracked mosaic of the end
Fragmented, torn
In rigid shapes they descend

In cataclysmic darkness
The primal blackened void

Shades of black they swarm
Weathered monuments they will sink
Into the seas of starvation
Forever swallowed up in our wake

The tempest released
Streets they hang in the abyss
A sunset burning through
Through the waves of a darkened lens

Unspeakable
The fallen pledges
The never ending deep

Shades of black they swarm
Weathered monuments they will sink
Into the seas of starvation
Forever swallowed up in our wake

Insidious, shapeless
In archaic circles

Beneath a thousand-faced moon
Beneath a thousand-faced moon

A phantasmagoria of the macabre
A phantasmagoria of the macabre
A phantasmagoria of the macabre

The voiceless, the blind
The cracked mosaic of the end
Fragmented, torn
In rigid shapes they descend

Shades of black they swarm
Weathered monuments they will sink
Into the seas of starvation
Forever swallowed in our wake

Into the seas of starvation
Into the seas of starvation


11. In Death They Shall Burn


A spawn of the alienation
The unspeakable black
Our of the portal of guilt
The ominous, crippling weight

The language of the blood
In a fever black
Monumental and cold
The earth now belongs to the dead

Even in death they shall burn
Their naked, celestial flesh
From the throat of the beast
The architects of the end

In blasphemous slumber
Demoralizing doubts
Reverberating the mythos
The earth now belongs to the dead

Blinding ceremonial fires
Through the darkest of voids
Irreversible dogmas
In hallucination crowned

In death they shall burn
The vortex eternal
In death they shall burn
The earth now belongs to the dead

Even in death they shall burn
A sea of faces black
Out of the fathomless depths
The architects of the end

In blasphemous slumber
Demoralizing doubts
Reverberating the mythos
The earth now belongs to the dead

Blinding ceremonial fires
Through the darkest of voids
Irreversible dogmas
In hallucination crowned

In death they shall burn
The vortex eternal
In death they shall burn
The earth now belongs to the dead

Abandon the ruins of man
The wastelands we left behind
Abandon the ruins of man

In death they shall burn
The vortex eternal
In death they shall burn

In death they shall burn
The vortex eternal
In death they shall burn
The earth now belongs to the dead


12. The Mirror Black


To perish in dreamless sleep
Dragged through the waste
Doomed, from arrogance blind
Fragmentation of all form

Celestial breath
Disguises lost
Clawing at harmonies dead

Eyes drained by time
Beneath dead waves
Our of the mirror black

Through aeons, crowned in death
And phosphorous doom
Insidious, dominion black
A labyrinth of tombs

As the sentences swarm
In permanent light
The reign of the feverish dream
Hearts of darkness
Beating fast
Our of the mirror nlack

As the sentences swarm
In permanent light
Out of the mirror black

Out of the mirror black
