I guess there's no such topic... so, what are your favourite lines written by Tristania? Here are some mine...
Quote
May thou carry me to the sea
Like autumn leaves... heaven wither
Savage is the winter prevailing within
- December Elegy
Quote
Wander lost on life's narrow path
- My Lost Lenore
Quote
Not fear, nor tears can reach me now
the light seems so clear as the night fades away
- Beyond The Veil
Quote
[Nothing from thy world will remain thine
except the very priviliege to die
- Heretique
Quote
I watch the sun go out
I've lived to see the end
- Wormwood
Quote
Tears falling from the sky
Words from a lullaby
Everything beautiful dies
For now, we're hanging in
Though we are blessed with sin
You make my tired heart sing
-Tender Trip On Earth
Quote
I'm a falling stone in a world of glass
I'm a ticking bomb with a smiling mask
- World Of Glass
Quote
Do they know
They have slept for so long
Do they know
The taste of their tongue
Do they know
They are trapped
-  The Modern End
Also I love the whole lyrics of The Shining Path, Lost, Deadlocked, Selling Out and Crushed Dreams, can't choose some lines. I'll post fav.q. from Ashes&Illumination later.

Quote
Words have been spoken
My chains have been broken
This street has an end, I have failed
Never will again

My life was invaded by you
This image of straws that break against the wind
We're through
But the world keeps spinning
Endlessly I have no answers for you
...DEADLANDS...


Quote
When the morning weeps
Endless sky is near
And the road you choose
By my hand is lead

In the morning light
All is clean and young
And the spider webs
Shine like silver threads
...LOTUS...

Quote
Let us pour one final drink
Fill the glasses to the rim
The world's on fire
I still can hear the choir sing
Behold! Your nightmares are fulfilled
God just got his final will
The world stopped spinning
And death is all around Ö
...WORMWOOD...

Quote
An angel strays upon my door
so frail and lost within
To weep upon her days of yore
my decadent come in
Her stain and tears upon my floor
the sorrow that she brings
Devotion of a life outworn
in decadence come in
...SEQUAL OF DECAY...

In life... I kissed the serpent in thy tears
For years... thy sorrow I mourned...
pale enchantress

Quote
Deep as the sea, wailing secrecies are burning in me
For a dream I once desired
I bequeth my sorrow and I regret to thee
Cannot cross that wide a sea
angellore

Quote
Grant me thy last midsummer breeze
May thou ascend from endless sleep
... my desire
Dance me above thy moonlit seas
Glance yearningly into the deep
A cold and weary night
my lost lenore

Quote
Reveal to me thy secrecies
hidden in the wan deep of thy infinite mourning
Lethean river carry me beneath thy riverine
lethean river

Quote
I'm on a tender trip
Slowly I'm loosing grip
Madness is in the air I fear
Stay, you're my acid-queen
Stay on my faded team
Run through the corridor with me
tender trip on earth

I'm a falling stone in a world of glass
I'm a ticking bomb with a smiling mask

My dearest enslaved
Shackled
Locked up in my cage

Fragile beauty depraved

From the corner of my eye
I feel them closing in
I know they caught the scent of me
And then they went for meÖ

Screaming voices
Ring in my ears
I don't want to know their names

"...The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and in the fountains of water.
The name of the star is Wormwood.
A third of the waters became Wormwood, and many died of the water, because it was made bitter..."

A friendly push
Off the cliff - is all I need
A sudden change
Or a smile
Could make me feel alive,
Anything to take the ignorance away

There is a hole in my chest
where my heart used to be
If you're looking for emptiness,
I'm what you need
Colder and darker and worse
Sometimes life's just a curse

My fav ever!

well...

where once I died
weeping for thee
everlasting seems the strife ascending within
Falling for thee
Darkness confounding me
makes me leave life

-December Elegy


Enlight the night within me
Lead me there
where my heart lies buried beneath the seven seas…


-Cease To Exist


Caressing the anger
Nothing will ever be the same again
But you are most beautiful
But you are most beautiful
This is my destination
Left behind in desolation
But you are most beautiful
But you are most beautiful

[and all the chorus]


-Destination Departure


Cruciami Santa

-Preludium...  (really don't know what the lyric means but like how it sounds)


It ia mexami
tuatio to luto
Espiritus ut platus quamodo patio

...postludium   (the same thing as Preludium...)

and others but can't remember now

Tristani‚ is not just words. I know languages by using the comp. Tristania is full of mysteries feelings But that don't always understand these mysteries, but alway spath & true.

Подобная ситуация, как в то время когда я в армии служил. Должен быть уволен в тот день когда находился на службе. Согласно устава я ещё не уволен, относительно человечность уволен в 1999 году. Не вероятная ситуация.

Behold the haven of life...

I bequeath my sorrow and I regret to thee
Cannot cross that wide a sea...
-Angellore (WW)

When summer's gone, flee my angel
Winterwinds, they might lead you far away
-Angellore (WW)

The same delightful place, I once felt in you
-Angellore (WW)

Tears falling from the sky
Words from a lullaby
Everything beautiful dies
For now we're hanging in
Although we're blessed with sin
You make my tired heart sing
-Tender Trip On Earth (WoG)

An angel strays upon my door
So frail and lost within
To weep upon her days of yore
My decadent come inn

Burn me on the fire
Call me a liar
Shout at me
Cry for me
When I'm gone death will come to me
Death will cry...
Burn me on the fire...
-The Shining Path (WoF)

Who's gonna be here if you want me to leave?
Who's gonna be here?

Veiled eyes see right through you

Welcome my friend
It's you and I
Do you sense the eye that watches you?
Can you feel her muted scream?
This is our very own horrid dream
-The Wretched (Ashes)

In your dark rivers
Dive in your mind
Search for your monsters
Search for resistance
Sink into the mud
Dance in the halls of insanity
Yet madness is
Your highest deed
Your vanity

We shall freeze
There for this life with thee I bequeath
Like a promise bewailed by the sea...

Faking your tomorrow
Life is good for the pretender
Our precious memories are
shattered and dismembered
-Amnesia (Rubicon)

We will wear the lies we share
Forfeit future, truth or dare
So you slipped into the fire
I was watching it transpire
-Amnesia (Rubicon)

Burning in water
Drowning in fire
-Exile (Rubicon)

Examinate this pain like snow
Driven far from my efferly loss
Enter this extended night of sorrow,
Pain,flowing tears...
-December Elegy (WW)

Crossing in life... my heart
with silver in times... I'm weak
too weak...
-Aphelion (BTV)

Lots upon lots of quotes I like. Tristania strikes me as a band with (mostly) very well written lyrics, can't tell that English is not the native language of the band members...
But here's a few...
Quote
Greed and anger
Made us younger
Couldnít save us when the tower fell
All my strength and all my hunger
All is lost
And none will live to tell
- The Ravens (and the entire song, as well)
Quote
Hunt down the profane
And put them to the torch
- The Shining Path
Quote
Hard Ö Iím harder than the life Iíve lived
Strong Ö Iím stronger than the pain you give
Itís lost Ö So lost
The world youíre in Ė The life you live
- Lost
Quote
For days burned and frozen lies
The years that passed me by
The child in me just died
The scars in me will never heal
An overdose of nothingness
My visions are for sale
Iím selling out
- Selling Out (I can only imagine what the writer felt so he wrote this; I did put this song on endless repeat the day I learned that I was fired, this past January).
Quote
Iím a falling stone in a world of glass
Iím a ticking bomb with a smiling mask
- World of Glass
Quote
Trembling hands in fire burned
As we march into the night
Every last stone will be turned
Within the bright daylight
- The Gate
Quote
Dreams and betrayal Ė hand in hand
Falling apart in a drug wonderland
Unable to move and talk
Unable to care at allÖ

Somebody is knocking at my door
Somebody Ė I think I have seen before
Iím trembled and shaken and stirred
I wish I could be a bird
- Bird
Quote
Night
A promise of rain
Divided we stand
A distance I canít take anymore
Wounds are open again
Divided we fall
Iím bleeding from the dark of my soul

Burning in water
Drowning in fire
- Exile
Quote
Outside my window they walk in a line
Asking no questions and reading no signs
They built a wall for me
What will life ever be but blue light from the screen
What will life ever be but fake
- Sirens
Quote
In the sawdust from the past there is still room
For significant mistakes and muted hate
I hear a signal from the wire but from the backroom
of my head
I hear you shout
Through my animated state
- The Emerald Piper
Quote
The more they mock our way of life
The more the conflict escalates
Now they strike into our faith
We will sure retaliate
- Illumination
Quote
Venus... through the looking glass
- Beyond the Veil (even if I have not a clue about what this means!)

I always liked that part. It's sad, but it's also motivating: you need to make a choice!

nice, i feel the same about that part.

one of my fav tristania quotes is the whole The Ravens but especially

Quote
Greed and anger
Made us younger
Couldn't save us when the tower fell

All my strength and
All my hunger
All is lost and none will live to tell

and

Quote
I do not feel regret anymore
I sense a presence of birds
Encircling me
And I am gone

Also the chorus of Equilibrium is one of my favourite quotes:

Quote
I swim in you
In your dark rivers
Dive in your mind
Search for your monsters
Search for resistance
Sink into the mud
Dance in the halls of insanity
Yet madness is
Your highest deed
Your vanity

Then also the two main strophes of Deadlands:

Quote
I failed to impress you, and you
Feel free to abuse me
All has been in vain
We're through
So please stop pretending
Years I spent were wasted on you

(...)

My life was invaded by you
This image of straws that break against the wind
We're through
But the world keeps spinning
Endlessly I have no answers for you


then there's much stuff from Rubicon but the thing slightly changes to a "favourite lyrics" topic, which isn't exactly this one (same goes for songs such as Fate, Shadowman, Endogenisis, etc.).
