Lyrics
« on: 26 November 2006, 16:53:07 »

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 )

By the way in Sacreledge, I think it's a guest-singer, maybe Lex Icon (Nagash) from The Kovenant?

[snapback]58015[/snapback]

Vorph (the person in the left) is the lead singer and guitar player of fromer Black Metal Band SAMAEL. Some members of Tristania like very much SAMAEL. So I read somewhere that it was a great honur for Tristania to have one of their "idols" singing on the album.



Of course VORPH is not a member of Tristania, he was just a guest singer.
The new grunter is Anders, and new Screamer Svein Terje

Okay so after an hour and many listens to Illumination i have come up with this lyric list, all organized in sequential order, most of it came from wglmb's website so props to him, completed all the songs expect a few bits of MercySide and Deadlands, in addition to being completely and totally lost in Down and Sacrilege (Sacrilege resembles heretique, anyone?)

I think Tristania finally made an album that surpasses BtV even though they are different styles, this one is much more WOW! (No am not a crazy Tristania Fanboy, at first I only liked mercyside and wasn't impressed by the album, now its stuck on me! *YAY* )

MUCH BETTER than Ashes

Anyhow the lyrics:

01. Mercyside
[One Phrase Incomplete]

You can hate me for
All the things I do
You should let my heart go
Whatever you decide to do

You can make me bleed
You can make me cry
You can make me fall
You can make me live or die

And I'll wonder how
And you'll wonder why
And you'll wonder why    
          
For years of [...]
like the Dynamite would
The surface is swollen cold
But underneath, the blood always boils

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Every day

We're growing colder
Digging deeper
In my mind

You laughed
But your smile never reached your eyes
You cry
But your eyes never shed a tear

And I wonder how
     
You laughed and you
Untied your hair
There are things to do
Things we never could tell
And you wonder why    
          
The surface is swollen cold
But beneath, the blood always boils

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Every day

We're growing colder
Digging deeper
In my mind

Nail me
Choose me
Blame me
Every time you light your fingers
I'm not what I decide

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Every time

We're growing colder
Digging deeper
In my mind   


---------------------------------------------------------------


02. Sanguine Sky

My blood is tainted
I serve you
A setting sun bleeding
Into an ocean of tears for you

Into an ocean of tears for you         

It's an exodus
From the dark

The night is breathing
The night is attaining

Falling, falling
Up the staircase
Towards the moon, the stars,
And the Venus-kissed Mars
The ever-worry Mars    
Blood runs silent
These days grow darker
And the spite's eating at me

I see the dead awaken
My faithful forsaken
Cannot free         
     
I am talking
On a hidden line
She says she is feeling
She says she is dead

She says there is a downward spiral
From the moon, the stars,
The ever-worry Mars
The ever-worry Mars    

Blood runs silent
These days grow darker
And the spite's eating at me

I see the dead awaken
My faithful forsaken
Cannot free

(oooh)

Blood runs silent
These days grow darker
And the spite's eating at me

I see the dead awaken
My faithful forsaken
Cannot free

Blood runs silent
These days grow darker
And the spite's eating at me

I see the dead awaken
My faithful forsaken
Cannot free         


---------------------------------------------------------------


03. Open Ground

Digging
In the mud
Deep in
In the mud

Sweat swings down my face
My sweet taste; like blood

Hide me with locks from your head
I can not win         
Bleeding, dying,
Digging
For your part
The torch went out
The room went dark    
    
Falling
In the fire
Crawling
Through the night

Tears fall down my face
My sweet taste; like blood

Cover me with locks from your head         
Bleeding, dying,
Digging
For your part
The torch went out
The room went dark       

Your savagery's always new

Deep in my back
Full of fear
I cannot see
Pain that tricked your screams
I cannot see         

Bleeding, dying,
Digging
For your part
The torch went out
The room went dark       
     
From the corner of My eye
I feel them closing in

I know they caught
The scent of me    

And then they went for you
[A curse on you to stay with me]    
And then they went for me    


---------------------------------------------------------------

04. The Ravens

Only ashes and bones remain
My hair is wet, my eyes are sore

The past has been fed to the flames
I cannot breathe any more

I try to stand on my feet, but I fall
I try to walk, but I crawl
Live as we knew it is over, and you are gone

Forever gone    

I will not bend
To our cross
I will not kneel
At your feet         
     
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

In the ruins of days gone by
A young affection, a velvet sky
A slave to greed

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

Forever gone    

I will not bend
To our cross
I will not kneel
At your feet         

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    

Do you study me?         

Dark
In the night
Dead
In the moon

I will not kneel
I will not kneel

I Would rather die facing my doom

I will not kneel
I will not kneel


---------------------------------------------------------------

05. Destination Departure


Caressing the anger
Nothing will ever be the same again
But you are most most beautiful
But you are most most beautiful

This is my destination
Left behind in desolation

But you are most beautiful
But you are most beautiful

Leave me
You talk like you know, but you don't
And it shows
She should have out-lived me
I listened before, but I'm not any more

So just leave me
I tried so hard
To find something that I
Could believe in
But there's nothing there
So there's nothing to feel         
Who's gonna be here
If you want me to leave?
Who's gonna be here?    
Caressing the anger
This is my destination
But you are most most beautiful
But you are most most beautiful

Leave me
You talk like you know, but you don't
And it shows
She should have out-lived me
I listened before, but can't any more

So just leave me
I tried so hard
To find something that I
Could believe in
But there's nothing there
And there's no-one who cares         
Who's gonna be here
If you want me to leave?
Who's gonna be here
If you want me to leave?
Who's gonna let it
When you cannot make it stop?

Can you hang on for today?    

---------------------------------------------------------------

06. Down
[Incomplete]

My violent mood-swings weaken my hands
I'll [...]
I have no time and no space
I'm falling behind
Just take me home         
My patience has all run out and I feel like yelling
It is too much

I'll abandon your town
And your grace have fallen behind
There is no God

Night is cursed
[...]
But still it rains
Still it rains    
     
It rains like hell

[...]

My violent mood-swings weaken my hands
I'll [...]
I have no time and no space
I'm fallen behind
There is no God   
     
Night is cursed
[...]
But still it rains
Still it rains
It rains like hell    

[...]

Rain!
It rains like hell

[...]

Spinning voices
Failing minds
I don't want to know their names


---------------------------------------------------------------

07. Fate

I've been trying to participate in masquerades
The throne's been empty for too long

The paradise for those who play along
And the fortunate ones

I've been listening to the voice at night and he is right
I am the chosen one

And my shepherd, he has paid my Prynne (related to an english purtitant leader)
I will go and smile

I've been begging for the public eye, now watch me fly
Can you see what I've become

So expose me, I shall be released
From the flesh-pain so sweet

I was walking through the valley of the living dead
Didn't help the tears I shed

Always chasing those elusive dreams
A drop of blood in the street

     

---------------------------------------------------------------

08. Lotus

When the morning weeps
And the sky is near
And the road you choose
And my hand is slain
In the morning light
All is clean and done
And the spider webs
Shine like silver threads

But you must not fear the dark
I will watch over your sleep
Until the morning comes
All wounds have to fade
I will, I will
I will watch over your sleep         
     
Lead me
Please guide me
Unchain me
Untie me

I see your shadow
Shake on the wall
But I cannot hear you voice when it calls
Can you tell dreams from reality
Can you tell sense from insanity

Sometimes it all melts down
And mix into half-lies
Half-lies
   
But you must not feel the dark
I will watch over your sleep
Until the morning comes
All wounds have to fade
I will, I will
I will watch over your sleep

But you must not fear the dark
I will watch over you sleep
Until the morning comes
All wounds have to fade
I will, I will
I will watch over your sleep    

---------------------------------------------------------------

09. Sacrilege
[Incomplete]

There'll be no-one left in doubt
When your soul be cast around
And Jesus will heal our sins
And Jesus will let us in
                  
Stay down on your knees
Stay down on your knees              

Millions crusading against mocking heresy
Man race
[...]
[...]

        
Stay down on your knees
Stay down on your knees    

[...]
[...]
God bless the guilt
To make us stay down on our knees

And now the war is over and their pain is all gone
Each wound has been healing whilst eager to move on
Talk to the [...]
God bless the guilt
To make us stay down on our knees    


---------------------------------------------------------------

10. Deadlands
[One Phrase Incomplete]

I fail to impress you, and you
Feel free to abuse me
All has been in vain With you
We're through

So please stop pretending
As I spent a wasteland on

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
With you
But the world keeps spinning endlessly

Get off my shoulders
Unleashed
On my dreams
In deadlands we live screaming

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

On your own
[...]
Dead and gone
Carved in stone    
Words have been spoken

My chains have been broken
This street has an end
I have failed
Never will again

Wow! Loads there! Some of your missing bits I have now added to my lyrics, e.g. missing Mercyside bit.
I'll update mine to include all yours, since I prefer to be able to see who sings what...
Thanks alot! :) :)

"Wglmb maybe you can host these also? its much easier to save them to notepad, I'll take care about modifying/updating"

If you mean you want me to host them as plain text rather than in tables then I'll do that (but as well as the tables; I prefer those :) ). Give me a day & it'll be at wglmb.50webs.com/illumination_text.htm.
For you to 'take care of modifying/updating', you'd have to know my username and password... so, I'll carry on with that. Instead, you could PM me (or email: wglmb [at] ezrs [dot] com) whith changes to make.
Or you could get your own hosting. 50webs is free & good!. But I'm happy to do it for you... :)

Tristania/Anders is viewing this, I wonder if he would be enraged ... *runs and hides*  :unsure:  But its safe to say this is the most impressive/austounding Tristania album ever! Can't wait to buy it

Wglmb no I meant I'll fix the errors the other users find, and PM you the updated lyrics set, I dont need to know your password/username! :)

Am not quite sure for all the missing bits I corrected, my ears hurt right now  :huh: Perhaps i'll be more sure after more listens

Cheers for Tristania!

Going to help on one thing: in the Raven:

Black Swans' "Do you study me?" is really "Til jord skal vi bli" (What the hell it means, I don't know either.)

I'm impressed so far with the efforts.
