Deify the depths of intimate caprice
The noble morsel of the grand eternity
Face the furious and black domain
From where all the wisdom once came
As a weak and stunning flare
Yet so completed and clear

In the eyes of the elementary existence
May the fallen of eternity explode
As primal instincts of devotion
Where the seeds of chaos blow
Where the almighty substance flow

When the oceans rise
And thunder calls
The shape of furious manners fall
Where the oceans rise

Between dimensions asunder
The maze of fragmented flare
Harvest the pain of the will and despair
Where the seeds of chaos grow
Where the almighty substance bow

Milleniums are falling
Milleniums are calling
Hail!
The dawn of a new era

    General CommentBorknagar have two songs called Oceans Rise. One of them is played in their usual black/folk metal style featured on "The Archaic Course" album. Another is featured on their acoustic album "Origin". This one incudes the same lyrics (sung entirely in clean vocals) but with different music and a slightly longer track length. Just thought I'd clear that up. It confused me at first. Both versions are great.
