Fragments of a broken time
Tells a story of decline
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
It is always just the same
When the clouds covered the sky
And you're tired of this life
Self compassion is the wrong way

If there's somewhere a last spark of hope
Change your opinion about things which you don't know
I wish it would be like in former times
When you filled the area with light
If there is a chance to recognize the blame
Try to imagine how you realize the aim
You can't ignore there's a truth behind
That followed us until the end of time


All things come to those who wait
Do your best and keep the faith
Pictures falling out of frame
Build the parts up once again
When the moonlight's shining bright
Whispers echoing in the night
You will see what is to be done

    General CommentWell,this song is great both musically and lyrically.Really hard-hitting,athmospheric and grim EBM hymn...not even weaker than in some Black Metal hordes.Lyrics...as for me,it's draw a picture of the world standing at the threshold of RAGNAROK,a feeling of forthcoming catastrophic downfall and then new dawn.BUT-
    Gotterdammerung will be the time when too many things are lost,
    when all decrepit shall dissolve in VOID yawning abyss,
    when even not all worthy being (NOT ALL THE GODS,F.EX.)survive and withstand the YGGDRASILL firestorm.
    "Fragments of a broken time
    Tells a story of decline"-
    nine worlds led themselves to mystical collapse(btw,Ragnarok is a fault of Ases)
    "Nothing ventured, nothing gained
    It is always just the same"-
    look at the modern world.Technically it exalts far,together w/spiritual decadence(White Race lost almost all values,Blood is polluted extremely)-stagnation of mind leads to death.
    "When the clouds covered the sky
    And you're tired of this life
    Self compassion is the wrong way"-
    a call to chosen ones,the Elite keeping the INNER CORE of Europe Man,HEIR AND DESCENDANT OF MIGHTY GODS,not a slave to some yhvh or jesus.
    "If there's somewhere a last spark of hope
    Change your opinion about things which you don't know
    I wish it would be like in former times
    When you filled the area with light
    If there is a chance to recognize the blame
    Try to imagine how you realize the aim
    You can't ignore there's a truth behind
    That followed us until the end of time"
    It'[s a principle to ACT in that brutal time.HOLD ON THY STRENGHT AND HONOUR,INNER SPIRITUAL ARMOUR AND GREEDY WOLFISH FLAME IN ACHIEVEMENT."All things come to those who wait
    Do your best and keep the faith"-NEVER SURRENDER.And even when gods fell...MAN is able to live and reach more in expansion,...finally,to become gods.
    "Pictures falling out of frame
    Build the parts up once again
    When the moonlight's shining bright
    Whispers echoing in the night
    You will see what is to be done"
    After weltenbrand,revival comes.
    AND NEW AEON GORGEOUS DAWN.
    14/88!
