Tremens factus sum ego [ I shake because of the facts ]
Et timeo [ and I'm scared ]
Dum discussio [ while I talk ]
Venerit at que ventura ira [ it will come to the upcomig wrath ]
Et timeo [ and I'm scared ]
Dum discussio [ while I talk ]
Venerit at que ventura ira [ it will come to the upcoming wrath ]

Herbei, ihr Leut' - das Fest beginnt [ come run up
you people, the celebration starts ]
Nehmt Platz auf besten R�ngen [ take your seats on best places ]
Seht, wie der flehend Mann dort kniet [ see
how the begging man kneels there ]
Seht den Ketzer, ich sag, er soll brennen
heut' Nacht [ see the heretic, tonight he
shall burn I say ]
Soll ihn sp�r'n, den Tod, er kommt langsam
und lacht [ (he) should feel death, it comes
slowly and laughs ]
Und als die T�chter des Teufels er nennt [ and as
he tells about Devil's daughters ]
Die Sense den Faden des Lebens zertrennt [ the
scythe severes the thread of life ]

Und als sein letzter Schrei erstirbt [ and when his final scream dies ]
Die Flammen ihn verschlingen [ flames consume him ]
Und Kindesweinen bricht die Still....
[ children's crying breaks the silence... ]
Seht zur Asche ward er, der die L�gen erz�hlt [ see
to ashes he went who told those lies ]
Im Zeichen des Kreuzes [ under the sign of the cross ]
Hat er seinen Tod selbst gew�hlt [ he chose his death himself ]
Doch unsere Seelen sind rein... [ but our souls are pure... ]

Doch unsere Seelen sind rein... [ but our souls are pure... ]

Schenkt aus den Wein! [ pour out the wine ]

Profundis Clamavi [ endlessly we cry out ]
And as the dark procession then has been fulfilled
For their god - a sacrifice - his blood was spilled
So Death took him to mother's chest
Where he may rest...

And the weather says, it's springtime
See the leafs of darkest green
And his screams hall in the nightly breeze
As the darkened sorrows feels

Dark are all the autumn nights
Where mind and stars unite
Knowing forbidden wisdom
And all the things he sees
Collected in a chamber
Secrets of astronomy

The rage in their eyes
Torches in their hands
And the power of the cross
Bringing fear to all the land
... and darkness will come to us all!

Profundis Clamavi! [ endlessly we cry out ]

And as the dark procession...

Schenkt aus den Wein! [ pour out the wine ]

    Asis Nasseri:
    This song is about Giordano Bruno, a scientist who lived in ca. the same era than Galilei did.
    For his scientific work he burnt in the middle of the Campo dei Fiori in Rome, 30 years before the trial of Galilei started.
