"The Insight And The Catharsis" as written by and Stian Tomt Thoresen....
Passenger on confessional course
Unlock with the key you behold within
Repair the shadow of your mind
And come awake

Oh, dreadful angel of mine
Enrich me with the vastness of being
Rigid father, teach me to comprehend
I'll commit myself to understand
To be faithful and the instrument
So that the ones with blindfold can see what I have seen
That there is nothing in-between
For I am the accomplice

Aghast and tender, indulged in sin
Embraced by loneliness, legions who grin
I blunder into the realms of slumber
I collide with the obscure
And see the last fraction of light go by

Plundering the sanity from the insane
And providing appearances in black
Carefully swept in decadent spheres
But faces in this world always remain darkened
In circles of dominance, emotional deeps unite
Fiction and transcendence woven together

In the essence of purity lies wisdom
Join the forces, the spiritual black dimensions
What more do you need of proof
Human hands conforming cloven hoofs
For I know the secrets and lies behind all truths
Knowledge is power and the power is mine

It's all mine
So let the children come to me
And share the limitless ways to infinity
Escape death and disease
And behold youth and vitality

    General Commenti can't believe that i am the first one to comment on this track....but it's one of my fav. dimmu's tracks...esp. the last part of the song.."Oh, dreadful angel of mine
    Enrich me with the vastness of being
    Rigid father, teach me to comprehend
    I'll commit myself to understand"

    i don't know why it's not written in the lyric...but i love it!!

    General CommentWhen I was a dimmu fan this was a great song. It could still be. Unless they had a stupid image and a constand way of making songs.
