Minnenes ekko stiller timen
Kneblet i tungsinnets lenker faller jeg ifra
Ikke lenger vil jeg være boltet fast i vemodighetens anker
Men endelig få lengselen slukket - Etter å dra

Drakk jeg for meget av livhåpets krus
Tok jeg gledens forfengelighet for gitt
For min strid mot tomhetens smerte - Denne dødsangstens rus
Er det eneste ene igjen - Som er mitt

I min ensomhet vet jeg likevel
At jeg ikke har noen andre å takke enn meg selv
Derfor er jeg rolig når
Repet strammes rundt min nakke

Stumme vitner kan ei gi trøst
Menigmann i gravkorets forsamling vil aldri fatte
Det landet av fortapelse
Jeg egenhendig skapte

Denne intense dragning mot dødens portaler
En vandrende studie i gråtkvalt messe-noir
Behersket siden tidenes morgen
Men noe jeg aldri lot slippe taket - Var sorgen

I min ensomhet vet jeg likevel
At jeg ikke har noen andre å takke enn meg selv
Derfor er jeg rolig når
Repet strammes rundt min nakke

    General CommentIt's about suicide, I think. He's singing that he's chained to melancholy, or depression...
    The chorus is going like this in english;
    "In my loneliness I still know,
    That I have none to thank but myself.
    This is why I remain calm,
    As the rope is tightening around my neck."

    I'll quote from darklyrics.com, they have an english translation;
    "[Chambers Of Sorrow Part II]

    The echoes of silence sets the hour.
    Gagged in the chains of "depression", I fall away.
    No more I will be bolted fast in the anchor of "melancholy".
    But finally get my longing "fulfilled" - for leaving.

    Did I drink too much from the goblet of "lifehope"?
    Did I take the vanity of joy for granted?
    For my battle against the pain of emptiness - this intoxication of the angst of death,
    Is all that is left... that is mine.

    In my loneliness I still know,
    That I have none to thank but myself.
    This is why I remain calm,
    As the rope is tightening around my neck.

    Silent witnesses can not give comfort.
    The ordinary man in the assembly of the "gravechoir".
    Tha land of perdition
    I created by my own hands.

    This intense attraction to the portals of death
    (I have as) A wandering study of tearful messe-noir.
    Controlled since the dawning of time,
    But something I never would let go.. was the sorrow."
