Wenn die Nacht einfällt
bedeckt sie die Welt
mit undurchdringlicher Dunkelheit.
Kälte steigt vom boden auf
und verpestet die Luft
plötzlich...
hat das Leben neue
Bedeutung

    General Comment"Burzum is ... light or darkness depending of how do you see..."

    All we remember that old zine interview....

    Ok... I think, here is the same...

    Probably is an threat message for christianity... The followers of the light... are not ready yet for a new age of darkness... which it could be... near... on the next day... tomorrow with a little help of him... :-)

    Varg, also stand out, for the wonderful feeling of darkness, its essence... as he manifests in other parts in the Filosofem album... "We need the night as we need the day..."

    The darkness is powerful too. The impetuous almightiness of darkness is here acknowledged... as an entity absolutely superior to the light... deeper and severe...

    Modern world has forgotten all this... Modern world doesn't put any attention in the meaning of darkness... and try to avoid her... but society failed miserably.

    General CommentThe english translation to this song is:

    When night falls
    She cloaks the world
    In impenetrable darkness
    A chill rises
    From the soil
    And contaminates the air
    Suddenly...
    Life has new meaning

    General CommentThe song is sung in English! Why is it written in German on here? (Don't get me wrong- it's still pretty cool to see it written in German!)

    General CommentWhen Night falls it separates us from society, During the nighttime your mind is on its own, it brings us closer to our animal nature. Everyone finds meaning to their lives in the dark
