"The Great Darkness" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
A greater darkness, my mind’s possessed
Disillusioned, numb emptiness
No hope, I feel a paralyzing fear
No salvation faking control
Their coldness hurt me beyond belief

Dominus beo spiritus
Will I burn, will I be free?
The great darkness consumed my soul
Diabolus libero spiritus

Blind my eyes, I hate the light
Despair, frustration, regret
Fighting, fighting for what?
Lies, your lies, I feel dead inside
My pain is all I leave behind

Dominus beo spiritus
Will I burn, will I be free?
The great darkness consumed my soul
Diabolus libero spiritus

A shadow the only light I followed
Transparent I am like, like a ghost

A far cry from whom I wanted to be
I never found my place, my place nor peace

Dominus beo spiritus
Will I burn, will I be free?
The great darkness consumed my soul
Diabolus libero spiritus

    General CommentDominus Beo Spiritus can be translated as: Master To bless Breath
    Diabolus Libero Spiritus can be translated as: Devil To set free Breath

    I'm guessing Spiritus can also mean spirit.

    General Commentgreat song, the short little solo at 3:44 is amazing, and Diabolus...I dont think means Devil because the album from Dimmu Borgir In Sorte Diaboli litterally means One Chosen By The Devil.

    General CommentDon't forget that in latin there is no word order. Dominus beo spiritus = to bless the master's spirit
    Diabolus Libero Spiritus = To free the devil's spirit/spirit of the devil

    General CommentI don't think the song is about it, but the beginning reminds me of the devar-toi, from the book "the dark tower vol VII" by stephen king
