Ich leg dir die Karten
les dir aus der Hand
lass das Pendel über dir kreisen
was wird dich danach erwarten
stehst du mit dem Rücken zur Wand
oder erhältst du den Stein der Weisen

Ich zeig dir die Zukunf
wende das Blatt
Tod oder Leben
Pech oder Glück
Gewinner im Spiel oder schachmatt
wenn du es erfährst
führt kein Weg mehr zurück


Freud oder Leid
ich geb dir die Chance
geh oder bleib
in meiner Seance

descendo in corpus diaboli sanguinei
experior portus sum imperium diaboli

    General CommentHere's my translation. It seems like all the E Nomine lyrics are really, really vague. Makes you wonder what the hell inspired them in the first place. I'm guessing horror movies.

    "I hand you the cards
    lay them in your hand
    Let the Pendulum circle around you
    which therein you begin to expect
    You stand with your back to the wall
    or hold the Wise Stone*

    I show you the future
    [I] turn the leaf
    Death or life
    Misery or happiness
    The winner in the game or check-mate**
    If you learn it
    leads to know way back

    [?] or sorrow
    I give you the chance
    go or stay
    In my seance"

    *=I'm not sure about this line at all
    **=not sure about this word

    TranslationHere's a better english version for the lyrics.

    I lay the cards for you
    read from your hand (chiromancy)
    let the pendulum circle above you
    what will await you afterwards?
    do you stand with your back against the wall?
    or do you receive the Philosopher's Stone?

    I show you the future
    turn the tide
    death or life
    misfortune or luck
    winner of the game or check-mate
    if you find out
    there's no path leading back

    Joy or sorrow
    I give you the chance
    Leave or stay
    in my seance.

    descendo in corpus diaboli sanguinei
    experior portus sum imperium diaboli
