Les paroles

1. SPIRIT

Throw yourself
Into the vessel of possibilities
Your green muse
The apparatus for soul mobility
A gateway to secrecy

Spirit Absinthe
Spirit Absinthe

Seven seals
Devilish creatures trumpets the end of time
Cloven Hooves
Anti saint wormwood catapulting your mind
Into the jaws of death

Spirit Absinthe
Spirit Absinthe

There is no return
From this excursion of possibilities
You are at the seventh gate

Spirit Absinthe
Spirit Absinthe

“Let none of this Earth inherit
This vision of my spirit”
(Edgar Allan Poe)


2. FROM THE PINNACLE TO THE PIT

You have the power
You wear the crown
From the pinnacle to the pit
It is a long way down
You wield the scepter
You wear the gown
From the pinnacle to the pit
It is a long way down
In your empire
They stare in frown
From the pinnacle to the pit

It is a long way down
You are cast out from the heavens to the ground
Blackened feathers falling down
You are cast out from the heavens to the ground
Blackened feathers falling down
You will wear your independence like a crown
Cruciger globus
You stand your ground
The orb disfigured
What is flat looks round

From the pinnacle to the pit
It is along way down

You are cast out from the heavens to the ground
Blackened feathers falling down
You are cast out from the heavens to the ground
Blackened feathers falling down
You will wear your independence like a crown


3. CIRICE

I feel your presence amongst us
You cannot hide in the darkness
Can you hear the rumble?
Can you hear the rumble that's calling?

I know your soul is not tainted
Even though you've been told so
Can you hear the rumble?
Can you hear the rumble that's calling?

I can feel the thunder that's breaking in your heart
I can see through the scars inside you (x2)

A candle casting a faint glow
You and I see eye to eye
Can you hear the thunder?
How can you hear the thunder that's breaking?
Now there is nothing between us
From now our merge is eternal

Can't you see that you're lost?
Can't you see that you're lost without me?

I can feel the thunder that's breaking in your heart
I can see through the scars inside you (2x)

[Solo]

Can't you see that you're lost without me?

I can feel the thunder that's breaking in your heart
I can see through the scars inside you (x4)


4. SPÖKSONAT

(Instrumental)


5. HE IS

We're standing here by the abyss
And the world
Is in flames

Two star-crossed lovers reaching out
To the beast
With many names

[Chorus]
He is
He’s the shining in the light
Without whom I cannot see
And he is
Insurrection, he is spite
He’s the force that made me be
He is
Nostro Dispater
Nostr'Alma Mater
He is

We’re hiding here inside a dream
And all our doubts
Are now destroyed

The guidance of the morning star
Will lead the way
Into the void

[Chorus]
He is
He’s the shining in the light
Without whom I cannot see
And he is
Insurrection, he is spite
He’s the force that made me be
He is
Nostro Dispater
Nostr'Alma Mater
He is

[Chorus]
He is
He’s the shining in the light
Without whom I cannot see
And he is
Insurrection, he is spite
He’s the force that made me be
He is
He’s the shining in the light
Without whom I cannot see
And he is
The disobedience that holds us together
He is
Nostro Dispater
Nostr'Alma Mater
And we are falling
Over the precipice


6. MUMMY DUST

I was carried on a wolf’s back
Here to corrupt humanity
I will pummel it with opulence
With corpulence and greed
In god you trust

My mummy dust
My mummy dust

Your cavalier of crapulence
To this feast of rapacity
I will bury you in treasures
Just to feed your incapacity
In god you trust

My mummy dust
My mummy dust

You are the possessée of avarice
I am the ruler of the earth
I will smother you in riches
Until you choke on sordid mirth

You are summoned in cupidity
Purulence and lust
I am the magnet for stupidity
Divine you feel my thrust
In god you trust

My mummy dust
My mummy dust

[The Collective sings]
In god you trust


7. MAJESTY

A higher power underground
From seraph skies and now to chaos bound
He is sitting sacred and profound
In midst of sinners licking up to kiss his crown

Pathetic humans in despair
Defaced, deflowered, now to death devout
A fallen angel in his glare
In midst of sinners kneeling down before His clout

[Chorus:]
Old One, Master
All beauty lies within
Old One, Master
All beauty lies within you

This oasis is a poisoned well
Of rotting carcasses that clog the deep
A prince in exile here in Hell
In midst of sinners flocking up like soulless sheep

[Chorus]

[Chorus] (x2)

Your Infernal Majesty


8. DEVIL CHURCH

(Instrumental)


9. ABSOLUTION

Ever since you were born you've been dying
Every day a little more you've been dying
Dying to reach the setting sun

As a child, with your mind on the horizon
Over corpses, to the prize you kept your eyes on

Trying to be the chosen one

All those things that you desire
You will find there in the fire

Put your hands up and reach for the sky
Cry for absolution
You'll be down on your knees and you'll cry
Cry for absolution

Even now when you're here you are moving
Hysterically seeking out what needs improving
And you're still asking for the sun

All those things that you desire
You will find there in the fire

Put your hands up and reach for the sky
Cry for absolution
You'll be down on your knees and you'll cry
Cry for absolution

You'll cry (x6)

Put your hands up and reach for the sky
Cry for absolution
You'll be down on your knees and you'll cry
Cry for absolution

Put your hands up and reach for the sky
Cry for absolution
You'll be down on your knees and you'll cry
Cry for absolution


10. DEUS IN ABSENTIA

Ain't this your time of need?
You're turning to the light
You have just begun to explore the dark
In the urban night

The world is on fire
And you are here to stay and burn with me
A funeral pyre
And we are here to revel forevermore

You're so goddamn frail
Failing for a change
You just had to know all about the world
But you will never know
'Cause no one ever told you how

The world is on fire
And you are here to stay and burn with me
A funeral pyre
And we are here to revel forever

The world is on fire
And we are tied as one eternally
A funeral pyre
And we are here to revel forevermore

Deus, Deus

All of your imaginations
Are now running down your face
All of your imaginations
Are now running down your face

Oh you are looking good
Payback in disgrace
And you're doing fine worshipping your lord
Standing in his grave
'Cause no one ever told you how

The world is on fire
And you are here to stay and burn with me
A funeral pyre
And we are here to revel forever

The world is on fire
And we are tied as one eternally
A funeral pyre
And we are here to revel forevermore

Deus, Deus

11. ZENITH

We conquered the magic
We counted the stars
Deciphered the clockwork
Enacted this farce

Devoured by shadows
We cling to the light
Deluded by wisdom
The bringer of night

Now and for always
A perpetual rise
A fall of illusion
Your Zenith fades into eternity

Time will soon be gone
Night will turn to dawn
Winds come on strong
So help you god
Come unleashed
You're set free

A genesis captured
Ignited by truth
A martyr disraptured
A vision too soon

Devoured by shadows
We cling to the light
Deluded by wisdom
The bringer of night

Now and for always
A perpetual rise
A fall of illusion
Your Zenith fades into eternity

Time will soon be gone
Night will turn to dawn
Winds come on strong
So help you god
Come unleashed
You're set free

Saecula Saeculorum (x8)

Time will soon be gone
Night will turn to dawn
Winds come on strong
So help you god
Come unleashed
You're set free
