IMPERIUM DEKADENZ LYRICS

1. In Todesbanden


[Instrumental]



2. Only Fragments Of Light


Poisoned falls the time
down to the depths of unknown
with crippled might and potency
rankling the soul
lost in undertow
an abysmal fall
anchorless down
to the unlighted home
in the thorny grove
silence stills the heart
rage chases the cold spurs
to a shimmering light...so pure
dreams break on a scant tide
lives hope are shorn
with many thoughts unborn
a fire is inflaming the night
a cry echoed thru the trees
their mystical dancing begins
...and whispering spells
the soul glows
awful awakening
torment of soul
...strafing the chains
only the dreams are free
owls glide through the night
leaves sway silent in the wind
stars are dancing on the sea
and whispering spells
the soul burns
awful awakening
torment of soul
...strafing the chains
only the dreams are free
a fire is inflaming the night
a cry echoed thru the trees
their mystical dancing begins
...and whispering spells
the soul flies
living in dreams
unchained and free
one day i will arise
from my profound abyss


3. Still I Rise


The Mysteries of life and death
that make you weak – just make me stronger
on the fields of destiny
I know where I belong

Standing at the edge
drowning in the sea
carried by the winds
Still I rise

Like the moons and like the sun
with the certainty of tides
in the darkest of all nights
Still I rise

Darkest nights, lack of empathy
a journey towards creation

Standing at the edge
drowning in the sea
carried by the winds
Still I rise

Like the moons and like the sun
with the certainty of tides
in the darkest of all nights
Still I rise

Still I rise
Still I rise

The world we see
our destiny
we will leave it all behind someday

The world we see
our destiny
we will leave it all behind someday


4. Dis Manibvs


A pale light frames your weary face
your labored breath clouds the last light on the day

Unbidden thoughts of better times
don’t make the trade any easier

This last stage you must go alone
would that I could go with you

As we travelled many such before
whether through storm or sunlit meadows
all these roads we walked together
all these memories will never fade

Your tender smile catches my breath
how can I go on without it

The moment then…
There is nothing worthwhile anymore

Your eyes swallow the light

The ship has sailed
you have breathed your last

All these roads we walked together
all these memories will never fade

So light you lie in my arms
that the burden has been lifted from you


5. Pantheon Spells


I enter the pantheon
to praise the ancient gods
I hear… the pantheon spells


6. Vae Victis


Grollen verkündet den Triumph
Die schnaubend‘ Bestie blutdurchtränkt
frisst sich durch das Gedärm der Stadt
Triumph!

Die Sklavenketten festgezurrt
Zerrt sie durch die Straßen
Ein Langer Marsch mit leerem Blick
Triumph!

Die Macht, sie gleicht der Göttlichkeit
Vae victis!

Dem wilden Tanz folgt Opferung
und Gebaren ohne Sühne
Entrückte Fratzen überall
Triumph!

Die Nacht gebärt Ekstase
Wein nährt das Blut mit Niedertracht
In den Schatten lauert der Tod
und die Seelen reisen zu den Ahnen
Vae victis!

Mit den Zeichen des Sieges
marschiert die Erkenntnis

Nur die Toten
haben das Ende
des Krieges gesehen

Die Nacht gebärt Ekstase
Wein nährt das Blut mit Niedertracht
In den Schatten lauert der Tod
und die Seelen reisen zu den Ahnen
Vae victis!

Mit den Zeichen des Sieges
marschiert die Erkenntnis
Nur die Toten
haben das Ende
des Krieges gesehen


7. Volcano


Beneath Vesivius‘ watchful eye
lies our city of might and glory
the bright light of Pompeii
it will shine eternally

Temples of wisdom
blazing in the morning sun
lush wines and olives lines
A life so pure!

Felix hic locus est!
Felix hic locus est!

The theaters and stone clad streets
endless nights of sin
Sculptures of the mighty gods
Temple walls – where the truth lies within… lies within

Temples of wisdom
blazing in the morning sun
lush wines and olives lines
A life so pure!

Felix hic locus est!
Felix hic locus est!

An ashen cloud
shrouds the breathless crowd
as the grey snow falls
the grey snow covers it all
with its dying dew*

Surrounded by death.
Bitterness…
All the glory…
Consumed by volcano

The august dream is gone forever!
The august dream is gone forever!

[inspired by Judith Nicholls – Pompeii]


8. Somnia


[Instrumental]



9. Pure Nocturnal Rome


I ride the whore
Pure nocturnal Rome
my destiny

I drift away, far away
from light to unknown places

Fraught with energy
Pure nocturnal Rome
I lose reality

Winds carrying screams from the Palatine
Like words of wisdom and fatality
Real or not, this becomes the essence of the manifest

I ride the whore
Pure nocturnal Rome
my destiny

Entering the place of sacrifices
where blood bleached its way of awe
nourishing the gods of war

I walk away, far away
Through the night and mystic places


10. Seikilos


Death is certain, life is not

While we live, shine
have no grief at all
life is like the wind
and time demands the end
