Yey, Norwegian! It's weird I didn't notice. I love the sound of Norwegian...
I'll update my page too, which btw has non-table versions now, too...

Oh, and in the Ravens, I just noticed that Vibeke is singing words during this bit:
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
I had thought it was just ooohs, but then noticed that she sings 'to tell' at the end. There are other words in there to, but hard to hear. Can anyone pick them out?

I've got a couple changes for you.

In "Down"

I'll abandon your town
And your grace have fallen behind
There is not God

the Not should be changed to No

In "Sacrilege"

There'll be no-one left in doubt
When your soul be cast aground [?? maybe soul son]

It is Soul

Deadlands
My life was invaded by you
This image of straws that break against the wind
We're through
But the world keeps spinning endlessly [...]

The word after Endlessly sounds a lot like "again"
Which does make some sense. Here's how it would go, if that was it...
"But the world keeps spinning endlessly again..."


Just a few minor things, but I hope I helped. It seems like the rest of them, we'll just have to wait for the release and lyrics booklet.

Yep, thanks. I agree with the soul-son thing. I think was listening to it late at night when I thought I heard son...
Thanks

while osten sings the refrain of the ravens you can hear vibeke in the bakcground...did somebody make out what she sings? I guess this one of those typical lines that will never be published in the booklets.

I have written out a lot of the lyrics.
Look at them here!

I need some help with the missing bits, though, so could anyone who has heard any of the songs, and has suggestions, please post them?

Thanks

Enjoy the lyrics, they're very good! I particularly like this:
Towards the moon, the stars,
And the Venus-kissed Mars

Edit: A few corrections made. Most notably, in Fate: I changed 'The parrot dies for those who play along' to 'The paradise for those who play along'  :D )

how exactly did  you come up with all these lyrics? The samples are only 30 secs long.

Alright.. I started listening to the album..

In Sanguine Sky I hear:

The every worrying Mars


Down:

There is no God --- > No instead of Not

I want them to say --- > That's what I hear at least :\

Night is cursed
[...] and blurred/burned -- > that's all I can hear from that... Probably wrong anyway
But still it rains


---

Uhm yeah so that's about all. Probably doesn't make sense at all.. but hey..

In "The Ravens", there are a few mistakes I think :

"Live as we knew it is over, and you are gone" -> "Life as we knew it is over and you are gone"

"I will not bend to our cross" -> "I will not bend to a cross"

"A slave to greed" : I am not sure as I can't really understand the last word clearly, but it could be "A slave to grief"

That's a very powerful song, from what I understand of it, it's about a warrior (a Viking perhaps "Greed and anger made us younger", at least a follower of the old Norse Gods (the ravens in the title made me think of Odin's ravens Huginn and Muninn)), who has been fighting against the forced Christianization of his land but has failed, all his friends are dead "All is lost and none will live to tell", "Life as we knew it is over and you are gone", but he still refuses to accept the new religion of the invaders and prefers to die standing than to kneel accepting it "I will not bend to a cross", "I will not kneel at your feet", "I would rather die facing my doom".

It's "a slave to greed", not grief. :)

Sacrilege... I don't have the lyrics nearby at the moment (so I'm not cheating), but this is what I hear:

(the tongue-in-cheek church choir seems correct to me, not sure on the 3rd sentence though)

(Vibeke:)
Stay down on your knees (x2)

(ěsten & Vibeke:)
Millions crudading against mocking heresy
Men race (as in mankind?) enforce the book that answers all our needs
Tongues filled with razorblades teach us divine misdeeds
Our clerics will kill to make us stay down on our needs

(ěsten & Vibeke:)
Now the war is over and the pain is all I got
Each wound has been healing, we are eager to move on
Tongues filled with razorblades still teach divine misdeeds
Our clerics will kill to make us stay down on our needs

I think I would prefer the lyrics on Illumination that both BTV and WW combined. This is a marvelous album :)
