I have everywhere sought
and nowhere found
So I lift the bleedin` bodkin
And thrust the grief deepest in

The gleaming bodies of infinite skies
Have for my spirit
The cold charm
Of death`s welcoming eyes
In secret to my soul
They are Ideals of old

    General CommentHAHA, I would've bet they sang in some other language :D

    Well the lyrics don't clear the meaning much. BUT, I will say this: the music is so powerful that it brings chill and awe whenever I hear it.

    General CommentI can only assume that this song is about death. I think it is about a person who has searched a lot to find meaning in life, but could not, therefore he embraces death as a way of finding everything he could not in life, everything 'ideal', as he says in the last line

    I agree with that 100%, it is truly epic instramentaly.

    about the song, it might be noteworthy that the title of the song means "to the stars" in latin

    General CommentHmm, well it sounds like he kills someone out of grief and confusion; possibly more than one person is killed.
