Dark Lyrics


1. A Cry From The Halls Of Blood / Empire Of Lost Dreams

[IT: guitars, talk and whispers]
[Winter: drums]
[Mourning: bass]
[ALL: vocals]

I live in the thoughts where the shadows no longer dance
and where my tears fall into the colours of the lonely dreaming crying
songs that my works are.
The melancholy clouds of my feelings float away in the tide of faces
which the soul of mine is.
I wonder about life even though death is close and as my lost life
falls into its definitive end...
the light won't save me. Tired is the blood of mine and my brain will
not speak no more.
I'm living in a prison of flesh and my heart won't answer my calls.
I'm shaking as I'm crying and as I feel the last drops of my life
leave my useless cold body
to walk the night... I'm one with the night... I AM

2. A Lonely Ceremony / The Eternal Walk

[IT: bass, vocals, guitars and whispers]
[Rob: guitars]
[Winter: drums]
[Aras & Veronica: female vocals]

My dark eyes watch the landscapes frozen stillness
The beautiful silent domains which he rules
The cold wind grabs my long hair
Like it wants to carry me with it to the darker marks

[Chorus :]
I walk through deep snow
[whisper] I'll wander endlessly
Searching for my master
I must march until death
[whisper] I'll wander endlessly
'til my soul takes over

Will I ever reach my wonders end ?
Penetrate the darkness
So much land that I've put behind my back
When will I sit at his throne ?

I watch the darkened domains and pass
By making the ceremony of the true
My feet are swollen blue
Of the wolf biting icy cold

I stab my dagger through my unpure heart
The sky has turned backwards - the moon is my eye
I'm neverending floating away like a dim sculpture
In the lands where I once was born

[repeat Chorus]

[whisper] I'm fading but never...
[whisper] I'm fading but never...

3. Journey In Darkness / Entering The Forest

[IT: guitars]
[Winter: drums]
[Mourning: bass]
[ALL: vocals]

I'm kneeling down on the forest's deiny ground
sun of the infinite sky doesn't reach me here
Oh darkness embrace me blood stop circulating
the mist surrounds me as I'm falling away my trance
My blackened teeth chew at the air we breathe

[whisper] lean its shapeless nothingness from the holy spirit

Poisoned I am by his holy feeble godness

[whisper] I spit him out in a bloody flood of phlegm

Their world is turned inside out
I take their lips to my mouth
The people lies in articulo mortis
I spread my wings and fly away
I'm the face of the night in which you all will drown
I'm the power the almighty dark everlasting strength
my body was for a moment cold and left alone
still my breath is a sick unken smell

[repeat verses 2 & 3]

4. Castle Of No Repair / Lies From A Blackened Heart

[IT: guitars, talk and whispers]
[Winter: drums]
[Mourning: bass]
[ALL: vocals]

My castle of blood beyond deepest sorrows lies distant clouds
its grey tower puncture the sky

[whisper] the pain

My skin the gloomy ground will not swallow thee
the echoes of my black heartbeat falls forevermore

[whisper] living further

My heart it cries
it slowly dies
castle of no repair

[whisper] stop the pain

5. Shores Of Kaa-Ta-Nu / The Eternal Walk (Part II)

[IT: guitars, talk and whispers]
[Winter: drums]
[Mourning: bass]
[ALL: vocals]

Flying through the night sky among the stars
the air caresses my naked soul
I've reached Ophthalamia's darkest parts
the evil desolate shore
The icy water whips the ancient rocks
I see the black blooded sea of Ragiih-Nib
the mountains of Makubu-Keen have guided me
oh stars now hear my scream
Give... me... the... Sign... Shores of Kaa-Ta-Nu

[whisper] Give me the Sign

The water raised above me and the sky died
oh lord of all accept my soul... Take me
keep on searching son maybe you'll succeed
so cold everlasting night here I am
Give... me... the... Sign

Try to find the keys of wisdom
Sathanas will guide your quest
and when you'll have found'em
the chosen place is for you

6. Nightfall Of Mother Earth / Summer Distress

[IT: guitars]
[Winter: drums]
[Night: bass]
[Legion: vocals]

Länge jag i sommarhettans dagar sökt men dig ej funnit
Kämpat, trälat och i solens bländande sken jag brunnit
Vi må ödslat våra liv men vi även en död var vunnit
Dig, Elishia skall jag finna vart du än har försvunnit

Årstider de alla igenom jag vaktar med
Leende så stort, jag härskar över allt
Moder jord nu dömer vi dig döden
Så som vi alla andra kommer att dö

Tillsammans skall vi härska
Moder jord...
Skall i våra händer dö

Elishia, dotter av de tre månarna
Skall jaga i natten tillsammans med mig
Och när vi gjort vårt kall så sänk oss i vår grav
Djupt, djupt i döden ned

[Refräng :]
Himmel blå och ljuv sommaräng
Låt er vaggas i ondskans säng
Svarta slöjor, svarta lövverk
Undergången nalkas så låt oss gå
Det stilla regnet faller i natten
Så är rymden i sin saknad
Svarta tårar, svart tomhet
En sista kyss så smeksam och mjuk

[Viskning :]
Den eviga vandringen i den utvaldes mörkaste tankar
På Kaa-Ta-Nuus stränder,
där slott som evigt trasiga står
Du ljuset son så liten,
dig jag åsamka denna smärta
kallad sorg...
... En resa i mörkret...

Moder jord, Elishia och jag dig skall sätta i brand
Vi skall sedan förnedra och våldföra oss på land efter land
Elishia vi skall vandra i detta krigets härjartåg hand i hand
Vi som Satan tjänar är förenade med de starkaste band

[upprepa vers II]

Vacker... Sommaren för andra må vara
Jag... Endast vill döda och dö

[upprepa vers IV]
[upprepa Refräng]

Vi vandrat den ensamma vägen så mörk
Så okäng och farlig för er andra
Ni oss aldrig kommer att forstå
Vi dyrkar döden och ondskans makt
De falsa skall falla för våra fötter
Små människor, vi era härsare är

The shadow went longer until darkness became complete
The superior humans so proud came forward

[upprepa Refräng]

7. Enter The Darkest Thoughts Of The Chosen / Agony's Silent Paradise

[IT: guitars]
[Winter: drums]
[Mourning: bass]
[IT: vocals]

[whisper] I am the face and blood of knowledge
[whisper] I am the pure heart of wisdom

I smell the night sing its sleeping ancient lullaby
and the non-existing star horizon burnt its candle
Find the dark in my eyes
I'm not and I'm all
I'm the end of the beginning

[whisper] What do my eyes hide ?

I hear the winter breathe and spread his message of cold
and the clouds change their eyes and forget the time
I feel the skin of the trees listen and walk away
and the moon dreams and I hear its eternal call
I taste the depths of the sea in my eyes and fly
and the lips of dust play its song forevermore
I sea the colours of the world disappear in the mist
and the bright tear of my smell fear the morning

8. Deathcrush

[MAYHEM 1987]

[IT: guitars]
[Winter: drums]
[Night: bass]
[Legion: vocals]

Demonic laughter your cremation
Your lungs gasp for air but are filled with blood
A sudden crack as I crushed your skull

The remind of your life flashes by
A life that soon won't be
Smiling with axe in my hand
Evil's rotten hand you'll see

I come forward

I'll send you to your maker
I'll send you to your death
Death nicely crucified
Death, heads on stakes

The barbeque has just begun
Deathcrush - Deathcrush - Deathcrush

Crush - Crush

9. Sacrifice

[BATHORY 1984]

[IT: guitars]
[Winter: drums]
[Night: bass]
[Legion: vocals]

I summoned up the living dead
And the demons in the skies
I drank from chalise warm and red
And watched the virgined eye

Present at ungodly births
In holy paradise
I spread eternal dark on earth
And raped the mother of christ

C'mon baby
Raise your knife
Welcome darling
To my sacrifice

Tie the angel to the altar
Sacrifice to lord in hell
Let the warm blood torrent baby
Moonlight set the night on spell

I saw the lightning strike in the sky
And heard your roar in pain
I'd lifted the knife and stroke once more
Your blood was mixed with rain

[Repeat chorus]

10. I Summon Thee, Oh Father / Death Embrace Me

[IT: guitars, talk and whispers]
[Winter: drums]
[Mourning: bass]
[ALL: vocals]

I sit in loneliness and watch the meaning of my past.
It dances and twitches then it lays down and dies.
I see the morning sky tremble and then it open and begin to cry
as night falls and darkness fills my room... whispering thoughts haunt
my candle burns low.
Can I find my fate ? Can I be one with my desire ?
The perchment of my future burns fast and I burn myself
badly in my futile attempt to save it.
The black blood of my heart weeps, in every tear a part of myself.
I have features of youth but a soul of age.
Why can't I see the web of lies my life is based upon so I can cut
and become one with the sky ? I long for the harmony... the peace
within me.
I wish to see myself in the burning light of truth and no longer be a
victim of hate.
I search for the purity in me... I search in my blood...
I open my vein to see what ever it may be.
And as the red rivers of my life flow from its tunnels and caves...
I see lies and falseness die.
I'm fading away, drowing in a thick mist of burning ice.
I'm showered in the blood of dying hate and I feel pure.
I'm taken to the breast of my truth and I'm reborn.

Once upon a time... Well, I could have started up that
way, but this is not a fairy-tale. The band Ophthalamia
and all that it stands for is for real. This is not going
to be a letter from a rock star to his fans, I just wanted
to write some words and explain a few things about the
album. This album was made because of that we have not
released anything in a couple of years. The band has had
its problems: line-up changes, people having other things
to do, bad luck with labels and I have been like a
overcharged cannon with double cracks working with VONDUR,
ABRUPTUM and an enormously rapid growing HORDE. Shortly I
did it because I felt like it. Many have been the nights
that I've been laying awake thinking about the phenomena
of Ophthalamia and I have realised that such a phenomena
should not be torn to pieces. I have made my mind, I will
NOT let Ophthalamia die for another couple of years
anyway. Also let me explain that Ophthalamia is not some
kind of project by people from other bands... We are a
REAL band that is really working hard. A lot of time has
passed since I raised the band and a lot of strange things
have occured but I guess I'm just unstoppable. Ophthalamia
is unstoppable. You might ask yourself why I chose the
pictures and the art for the album the way I did. Well...
as you might notice some of the people on the pictures are
not even featured on the songs. I simply chose the photos
and the art on this album... yes, because I felt for it.
You might also notice badly tuned guitars, singers
forgetting their lines, some drumming out of beat etc.,
but actually who gives a fuck?? Just be lucky I provided
you with some of the greatest cult recordings ever. And
what seemed corporal melted like breath into the wind...

Darkness IT shall be - IT September 1996

Post Scriptum: have you noticed my friend The Grey Death
on the cover?
