Title: Tanz Der Schatten
Translated: Dance of the Shadows
Artist: Theatre of Tragedy


"My eyes are so dark,
my vision is black,
black like the night;
The dawning status of humans -
is my time of the existence.

Nevertheless you have your eyes
hide light behind the darkness;
A light showed me
that you are fulfilled by fear.
Tell me please,
why do you carry this fear?"

"I am so alone,
isolation in eternity -
I whisper thoughts only for me,
with the shadows -
with the shadows, I dance -
lonely move, I,
the blood lust I dead dance "

"The deadly kiss too receive,
consequence of the darkness into the nothing!
Sweet Nectar on your lips;
A stream of blood dampens our lives,
I kiss the love from your face,
I kiss the hate from your face "

"Dance no more with the shadow,
Dance no more over the grave,
dance with me the Devil's Dance.
I long myself your bride to be -
to become around to darkness."

"To taste a feeling so beautiful to
my bitter existence!"

"Always and forever: A slave of yours, am I."

"Give yourself to me!
I was fulfilled of mourning,
I was so depressed,
but you kindled the love!"

"Let me welcome your kiss:
The destructive kiss."

"... to I die, embrace me,
and I shall rise again...
I love you... "

    General CommentThis translation is not the official one.

    I looked up the lyrics and then translated them on Dictionary.com. And then I used simular words in hopes to fit the same beat. Please C&C.
    Someone mentioned they wished to see the words translated... so I went through and translated it, phrase for phrase.

    Some of the words didn't translated, so I just used the old technique of reading ahead, and then finding some word to replace it.
