Full Wasteland's Caress Lyrics?
« on: 20 February 2006, 16:47:07 »

I'm just wondering if anyone has a full set of lyrics to Wasteland's Caress. All the ones I can find either miss out Vibeke's part or it is incomplete. If anyone knows what she sings in that part please let me know.
Also if anyone knows what Morten sings after the first chorus but before he repeats the first verse again let me know.

Thanks for any help.

It's been a really long time since anyone has writen anything on this topic, but I hope there are people still interested in it as I am. '^^

I couldn't understand much of the part Vibeke sings, but I'm pretty sure her last line is something close to "prayed for us that night", or "played...". I couldn't figure that out because of the missing part and the time I spent away from english classes. (Please, forgive me for any mistakes.)

Does anyone have the full lyrics? It really bugs me that I can't sing the parts I love so much to listen.  =/

There are no official lyrics published by the band.
It would be cool if people really tried to focus one part at the time, maybe we'll figure some of it out :)

This is what I discern from Vibeke's part.

Peace...
inside of me, inside of me at dusk
inside of me, inside of me at dawn
? ? ?
? ? ? the vigour that I lost
Painful was the night, left in/to the other ? ? ?
(The choir repeats ''Painful was the night)

I did a compilation of latin lyrics threads a (long) while back, there might be some on Wasteland's Caress in there: http://theilluminated.net/cross-album-discussions/compilation-of-latin-lyrics-threads/

Thanks Reumeren, you helped me a lot with the lyrics you discerned. I am quite positive that the words before the vigour that I lost are  Bleeding forever, I definitely discern forever. I also think that the first word Vibeke sings is grief and not peace. I can't discern the lyrics over the choir, I can't help you for that part.

Grief
inside of me, inside of me at dusk
inside of me, inside of me at dawn
Bleeding forever the vigour that I lost
Painful was the night, painful was the night

Hehe, I have my periods where I raid every ''lyrics-thread'' on this forum, trying to discern every uttering not typed in the booklets.

I think you might be right, it does sound like forever (although you have to take into account how norwegians sound while speaking english). But it seems like Vibeke sings ''Painful was the night left in the eye'', while the choir repeats ''Painful was the night''. I might have said this earlier on another thread about the same thing.

Grief
inside of me, inside of me at dusk
inside of me, inside of me at dusk
Bleeding forever the vigour that I lost
Painful was the Night left in the eye       [Painful was the Night...]

I listened to Vibeke's part several times and now agree with you that the first word is Peace. I thought it might have been grief as it made more sense to me with the rest of the lyrics. Both my boyfriend and I agree that we hear Desire me and not inside of me. I clearly hear the 1st syllable as sounding like thee.

Although vigour makes sense, I discern winter .I heard it consistently after listening to this part several times


Peace
Desire me, desire me at dusk
Desire me, desire me at dark
Bleeding forever the winter that I love
Painful was the night leaving  tears behind  ( Painful was the night)

Okay, I'm 99% sure of these lyrics in this video:

Beast...
Desire me, desire me at dusk
Desire me, desire me at dawn
Breathing and wither - the vigour that I lost
Painful was the night left in the eye
(Female choir: Painful was the night)


Listen to the video below while reading - I'm very sure now! :) She must have changed the unknown word into ''breathing'' when she sung it live.

I hear it too in the video. I do not agree of Left in the eye though, I hear Leave my fears behind or something close to it

That's too many words. Look at her while she's singing, she sort of fades out while the choir continues for a bit. I used to think that she kept singing to match up the choir, but it's not. I can't really tell from the studio version though. Too much going on at the same time in Tristania :)

Listen to the video below while reading - I'm very sure now! :) She must have changed the unknown word into ''breathing'' when she sung it live.

I agree with you 100 % for the 3 first lines in the video. I do not hear and at all in the 4th line nor anything sounding like it. Depending on the recording, I never hear the same words for almost the whole phrase. The only words I clearly discern in that line are "the" and "that I". For the other words my level of confidence is 50/50. The 1st word could be breathing, it sounds like it but sounds like bleeding too. Where you hear and wither in the video, what I hear is closer to "the winter. It could be the vigour that I lost but I do not discern the word vigour clearly enough to be sure that it is the right word.But I definitely hear that it starts with the sound vee and ends in err. But I do not hear the sound ig that would make me totally confident that the word is indeed vigour.It could also be winter or victor. I do hear lost in the video but on CD the word I hear sounds more like love

I agree with you that in the video, the 3 first words of the last line sound like Left in the but I do not discern the word eye as the last word. In the video, I hear land while on the Widows Weeds CD I hear light. I hear a l at the beginning of that word in every recording of the song.


Also, almost at the very end of the song, Vibeke sings two lines twice. I think that the lyrics for that part are:

Cross the gate, the gate of Tartarus
Cross the gate, the gate of Tartarus



Trying to decipher the lyrics to Vibeke's parts are making me become an insomniac  ;)

Hehe, I'm not sure of anything anymore. She sings so vague, it could be "Changing the weather...". I really have no idea.

It also sounds like "picture", and I definitely hear "lost" still. I agree that it could be "love", but the last sound is an S in my ear, not a V. "Vigour" is also pronounced "VIG-OR", so my original theory is wrong, unless she mis-pronounced the word - which is definitely possible. Vigour also seemed like a "Morten-word".

I can only hear "eye", even after repeated listens. I hear no consonants at all, she goes straight from "the" to "eye" without any break in her voice. If she said "land" or "light", she definitely should have sung faster in order to squeeze in the L. It sounds just like "AYE" (ai), and not like "LAND" (lŠnd). I'll admit that it sounds like "light" the first time she sings in the live version, but on the second one (and on the album) I hear "eye". So I'll stick with it :)

I recognize that feeling  ;D
Like I've said before: FUCK YOU, TRISTANIA for making so good songs! Otherwise it would not be worth it to spend hours trying to make sense of 90s gothic metal songs with many layers of badly produced sounds, norwegian accents and hidden lyrics.

LOL, I understand this feeling too! As much as I am frustrated with the hidden lyrics, Tristania has fueled my passion for singing. First many years ago in my mother's house basement then doing Tristania covers with friends.Vibeke is such a huge role model to me.


I am giving up on the hidden lyrics for every time I hear something different!

I listened to the CD version and this version as well, and applying reduced speed and phonetics, I heard this:

"Beast/Peace
Desire me at dusk
Desire me at dawn
Reaching the river, the virtue that I lost
Painful was the night left in the light"


I'm not sure of "Beast/Peace" because they sound really similar, and she doesn't pronounce the last /t/, but that's normal in a non native speaker, besides /b/ and /p/ are really similar sound, they're made almost in the same way in the lips. "Reaching" is the problem word, I actually tried to get something and that's the only word that makes more sense for me, she sings a /tʃ/ or maybe a /t/, I'm not sure. "The" and not "and", they both have /ə/, and it's the stronger sound in the word, but I think it's "the". The next word either has a /v/ or a /­/, but "river" sounds better for me in the CD version. "Virtue" has a /tʃ/ (and it can also be pronounced with /tj/) what's really similar to /t/, especially for us non native speakers, that's the most probable word in my opinion. Here she says /aɪ/ in "painful", but I think it was a mistake, in the CD version she sings an /eɪ/. She sings "the" as /­ɪ/ so the next word has to start with a vowel sound, but I don't know why I hear "light", and it makes much more sense than "eye".
Well, that's what I've got.

River, light and virtue make sense in Morten's lyrics, I think. Yeah, good try !

I agree with you, the last word does sound like light. Especially on the live performance video where the words sound clearer than on the CD. I have viewed the video several times tonight,on the 2 last viewings I heard those words almost crystal clear

''Beast
Desire me, desire me at dusk
Desire me, desire me at dawn
Weeping forever the vigour that I lost
Painful was the night left in the light"

The bad thing about all this is that when you listen to something you don't really understand, at the time of reading what it is supposed to be said you tend to relate what you read with what you hear, it's the same than with psychophonies with subtitles, your brain works hard to create a bridge between these two parts.

Now, about what you say: I keep hearing what I wrote before, I just keep hearing the same sounds and it makes a lot of sense for me .-.
I'm sure we shall never know the truth d:

I started singing Vibeke's part and those are the words that came to me as I sang

Weep!
Desire me, desire me at dusk
Desire me, desire me at dawn
Grieving forever the winter of our love
Painful was that night left in the light and fright
