"Beyond The Veil" as written by Morten Veland, Morten Veland and Einar Moen....
Not fear, nor tears can reach me now
The light seems so clear as the night fades away
Behold of thy flame, below of all shame
Come conquer me sweet dreams of paradise

Dusk drawn hither to my evening star
A glance in thy mirror
The trance of thy mirror
Venus... through the looking glass

Dance so frail and lost in the fields afar
Cast off thy mourning
Clasp life and glory
Venus... through the looking glass

The sense of angels in veils of dawn
Like she runs forever among thy halls
The pale horizons are closing down
The reasons for living are lost somehow

Cross my heart with a glance upon the star of riddance
Drift afar like teardrops on the Stygian River

I'm the nightfall and wizard that summon thee
You're the blizzard that drape my eyes
I'm thy sorrow and vein of obscurity
You're the dagger that cuts

Shivers on the bleak horizon
Profound words... you're my frailty

See the light cease in thy life
Profound words... hurting me

    General CommentAs far as I can tell, it is about leaving this plane of existence, and about being beyond worldly cares in the afterlife. The part played by Vibeke (fem vocals) is a woman who has died and found inner peace and bliss beyond the veil of reality. Meanwhile, on the plane of the living, Morten's (male vocals) character is mourning her loss, and seeing her face when he looks in the mirror; in a sense, seeing the part of him he has lost. He begins to wonder if it would be so bad leaving all things behind and joining her in the afterlife.

    This is just my interpretation, I have no idea how close I am to the actual meaning of the song.

    General CommentI'm suprised noone has mentioned all the references to Venus in this song. Considering that he says "Evening Star" I think he is making a play on words between the planet venus and the Roman goddess. Venus was the Roman equivelent of the greek Aphrodite (the goddess of love and longing) Venus the planet is the brightest "star" in the morning or evening. Where is talking about "runs forever among thy halls" I think he is talking about the rotation of the planets. Same with "star of riddance". I love the part about the wizard...
    I think he is talking about suicide "vein of obscurity" and "dagger that cuts"

    General CommentThat's a really good interpretation but i think maybe the 'she runs forever...' bit could be in his mind. She is running forever through his mind. Only an idea. Does anyone know what role Osten is playing? Vibeke is the woman who died, Morten is the mourner so who is Osten?
