Awaking the Centuries
-
In the books of what will be
Written by the demon lord?
Never lift your head up to the east
'cause darkness wakes the best!
-
Der Kerzen Schein
Er leuchtet fahl
Als das Sonnenlicht er stahl
Und nur das große Himmelszelt
Bezeugt das Ende dieser Welt
-
So feed the spark
Welcome to the land of dark
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
Take my hand
Forgotten in the promised land
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
-
The knowledge, brought to the world
Is growing with a bitter taste
In a dream I saw things that will be
Centuries away
-
Des Mondes Schein
Er leuchtet fahl
Das Herz der Finsternis er stahl
Nun gleißend Lichte ihn umgibt
Und doch des Menschen Hoffnung siegt...?
-
So feed the spark
Welcome to the land of dark
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
Take my hand
Forgotten in the promised land
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
-
The night when evil steps out of the dark
And the cross is rising again
And fires are keeping the light
Burn, my friend...
-
And the sign of humanity is burning tonight
I can't escape from this ritual silence
Humanity's burning tonight
-
When I open my eyes
I see soldiers in the fields
Dead bodies on the ground
There are children inbetween
Explosions shock the land
And the evil shows its face
The one called Hister rises
This is the fall of grace...
-
Beast ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers
The greater part of the region will be against the Hister
The great one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage
When the German child will obcserve nothing
-
In the books of what will be
Written by the demon lord?
Never lift your head up to the east
'cause darkness wakes the best!
-
Der Kerzen Schein
Er leuchtet fahl
Als das Sonnenlicht er stahl
Und nur das große Himmelszelt
Bezeugt das Ende dieser Welt
-
So feed the spark
Welcome to the land of dark
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
Take my hand
Forgotten in the promised land
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
-
The knowledge, brought to the world
Is growing with a bitter taste
In a dream I saw things that will be
Centuries away
-
So feed the spark
Welcome to the land of dark
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
Take my hand
Forgotten in the promised land
Death in all the centuries is what I left behind
-
And the sign of humanity is burning tonight
I can't escape from this ritual silence
Humanity's burning tonight

    General CommentThis song is just amazing ...
    everything fits so perfectly ...
    the music is just awsome !!
    i belive this song is about the war of germany ...
    and with some relation to Nosterdamus :
    "In the books of what will be"
    "In a dream I saw things that will be Centuries away"
    Nosterdamus wrote about the hister that will rise
    "And the evil shows its face
    The one called Hister rises "

    Great song !!

    General CommentThe entire album is about Nostradamus.
    Nostradamus called Hitler "Hister" in his vision, and wrote it like this:
    "beast ferociuos from hunger will swim across rivers
    the greater part of the region will be against the Hister
    the great one will cause it to be dragged in a iron cage
    when the german childs will observe nothing"

    General Commentyeah, this song is deffinately about Nostradamus' writings. Its definately the best song in the album, next to heavenly damnation.the long wait for the short chorus is kinda dissappointing though. regardless, a phenomenal song

    General CommentThe sudden transition at 1:35 is hands down the best few seconds of music I ever heard (and the buildup to it is great). I love to listen to this first part as loud as possible, so that when the transition happens I can feel the bass in my chest.

    General CommentONE OF THE WORLDS'S MOST BEAUTIFUL SONG
    IT IS SO HISTORICAL AND SO NEW
    U JUST AT FIRST HAVE TO READ Nosterdamus BOOK
    THEN LISTEN TO IT
    TO KNOW HOW GOOD IT IS .
    THE LYRICS SO NICE
    BUT I GUESS THE MELODY ITSELF DESCRIBES THE WHOLE STORY .

    THOSE GERMAN GUYS ARE SO LOVELY , SO ROMANTIC , SO AMART AND SO UNIQUE
