Dark Lyrics


1. The Amaranth

[Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson, Jan 2002 & March 2002]

[Voice of Venus:]
Thou art a flower, growing into his soul.
You light his silent path of night...
Thy winds they blow for his love and shadows...
He's praising the beauty of thee... in a far away land.
Thou art The Amaranth!

[Remembering failed love:]
Meeting... Connecting...
Wishing... Hoping.

Embracing... Kissing...
Loving... Promising forever.

Spending... Fading...
Crying... Despising.

Bleeding... Screaming...
Suffering... Hating for love!

Never I knew a heart could be so true...
I dream to fly together forever with you!
Our crimson souls would surrender their pain...
Our tears would wash away the stains.
It's so cold here... without you!

Within her, the essence of Night...
Within her, beloved Venus shines!

[Voice of Venus :]
Fading away, the last sunray... Fading away, the last sunray...
Autumn hath come to thy heart, Autumn hath come to my heart,
but maybe the rain brings her to you... but maybe the rain brings her to me...
So true and so dark, her beautiful soul forlorn. So true and so dark, my flower!
She is The Amaranth!

Will she rise in me?
Will I rise in her?

[Voice of Venus:]
Will she rise in him?
Will he rise in her?

2. The Return to Solitude

[Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson, Oct 2001 & Jan 2002]

Oh, the world makes me return, return to solitude.
Will hope ever come to the dark souls who wanders alone?

Hear my silent prayer as I weep tonight!
Dawn gets greyer, thou hast taken flight!

Love abandons the soil, leaves a shade...
It whispers 'goodbye' as we quietly fade... away!

The brightness fades in my eyes
but nightfall calms all my cries.
Please, give us wings to fly!
Without love our world dies... it dies!

To drown in the cold mournful sea...
So lost here in a world not meant to be... for me!

The fading moon cries in vain,
as the rising sun reflects my pain.
We sail on seas of guilt and shame,
but still we feed this love-lost flame... with hope!

Hear my silent weeping as I pray tonight...
Night grows colder, but I see a new light.

Beautiful night, to thee we pray;
Let the truest of love come our way!
Beautiful night, to thee we pray;
Let all the illusions just wither away!

3. Memento Mori

[Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson]

Another day has passed by,
but still we must not forget that night must fall!

4. Cthulhu Rising

[Text inspired by Abdul Alhazred's prophecies, The Necronomicon or Al Azif. Written freely in apocalyptic form by Anders Jacobsson, April 2001]

His life's still breathing, dead but dreaming...
and dark shines the stars out of time so lost.
The ocean roars as the sky turns black,
as their eyes are gleamings, gleaming in the darkness.
The scorn of distorted faces enraptures the world,
spiteful is the fire that burn in their souls.

The Last Amorphous Blight of Nethermost Confusion, devour mortality!
The Gate of the Silver Key knows the Outer Gods... from Yith ascended!
The Watcher, The Keeper... Yog Sothoth!

"The Old One's Were, The Old One's Are,
and The Old One's Shall Be Again!
So It Is Written, So It Shall Be Done!"

The chaos is coming, the haunter of universe,
and the blind creator bless the dragon who sleeps.
Cthulhu awakens like a storm from beyond
as the crimson opens, howling from a distant space.
A string of light from his house in R'lyeh... Behold!
Hear the thunder roar as he enters the world.
His world...

Hear Them whisper in Carcosa and Irem... in Kadath unknown to man.
Nyarlathotep, Hastur... Tales of the Hyades sing. In every shade they wait!

"From the dark stars They came and descended to primal Earth,
and They shall rule where They once ruled. They Shall return...!"

They cleanse the blood of divinity
in the flames of evermore.
In power They crown eternity
in the lands of darkness lore.

Cthulhu Rising
Cthulhu Rising
He's coming!

Mighty Azathoth - the blind can see...
R'lyeh arisen - Eternal dominion.

The gate is open, the world is burning,
and lost are the seals of the elder gods.
Unlocked is the door of the silver key...
out comes the powers of true monarchy.
The Old Ones rises their old dynasty,
as the flames devour foolish humanity!
They die forever!

"That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even Death may die."

5. Death, Come Near Me

[Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson, 2001]

By day I sleep, at night I weep!

O Death, come near me!
Be the one, for me, be the one, the one, who stays.
My rivers, are frozen, and mischosen,
and the shadows, around me, sickens my heart.

O Death, come near me,
and stay, by my side. Hear my silent, my silent cry!
In sadness, I'm veiled, to the cross, I am nailed,
and the pain, around me, freezes my world.

My cold world...

In life, I've failed, for years, I've wailed.
Frozen in time...
left behind...
The rapture, of grief, is all, to find...
The rapture, of grief, is all!

Behind the shadow of life, the lost hopes are grieving.
I seek the night, and hope to find love.
So I drown in the silence of life's short eternity.
The tears fills the void in my heart, astray...

Embrace me now, delightful ease!
Give me a world of wondrous peace!

Calm the desperate scream in my heart!

O Death, come near me,
save me...
from this empty, cold, world!
O Life, you have killed me,
so spare me, from, this cauldron, of misery!

In life, I cry, away, I fly.
Chosen, to fall, within, these walls.
The rapture, of grief, is all, to find...
The rapture, of grief, is all!

Oh, shed a tear for the loss, of innocence,
for the forsaken spirits who aches... in us.
Cry for the heart who surrenders to pain,
for the solitude of those, left, behind!

Behold the pain and sorrow of the world,
dream of a place away from this nightmare.
Give us love and unity, under the heart of night.
O Death, come near us, and give us life!

6. It Grieves My Heart

[Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson, May 2001, and some parts taken from the short story “The Outsider” by H. P. Lovecraft, 1926]

The world is falling so cold and grey.
Shallow and empty life lingers on.

It grieves my heart, it tears me apart...
I hear this constant disharmony!

Now I ride with the mocking and friendly ghouls on the night-wind, and play
by day amongst the catacombs. I know that light is not for me.

Lost in a dead world...
With broken wings!

Human reality feeds upon a whore!
For what idols have these lowlifes
bowed their heads to build up a shattered world?
Kill the bitch on the cross...
Scorn their sacred loss!
And the sheep are making love to the madness of the flow!
Is this all they know...?

The madness of the flow will take the final blow,
as the sun goes down over mankind's tomb
in the universal graveyard of filth and slime.
This is Our time!

Lost in a sick world...
Beholding the corruption!

Curse them all!
Lead them astray!
It grieves my heart they won't go away!

Now I ride with the mocking and friendly ghouls on the night-wind, and play by day amongst the catacombs.
I know that light is not for me, save that of the moon over the rock.
I know always that I am an outsider; a stranger in this century and among those who are still men.

7. Dark Oceans (Outro)

[Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson, Summer 2002]

"I know that light is not for me, save that of the moon (and the rock)... For I know always that I am an outsider; a stranger in this century... for a time..."
[from H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Outsider']

[Spoken verse:]
Dark oceans we cry... God wonders why...
but we see ourselves in darkness with our love.
Abandoned by time and space,
we are still alive, we are not alone.
We are one under the banner of the fallen angel!

"Och när Lammet bröt det sjunde inseglet uppstod i himlen en tystnad som varade vid pass en halv timme. Och de sju änglarna som hade de sju basunerna gjorde sig redo till att stöta i sina basuner…"
[sample from Ingmar Bergman's film The Seventh Seal, 1957]

[English translation:]
"When the Lamb broke open the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Then the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow them."
[from The Bible, Book of Revelation]
