"Sympozium" as written by and Stian Tomt/kopperud Thoresen....
Chains of despair
Cloaked by darkness
The thundering echoes of great destruction to come
Mankind's mysteries
The dying world

[Chorus]
Madness in it's sweetest form
What shrivels and dies must face the tempest
The angelic heaven bows to the ultimate truth
And melancholy grew

Anticipation mender through madness
Condemned to the same horrid fate
Insanity applauds
How sharp the awakening
Pale as disease
Mocking, maddeningâ?¦
Give up the ghost
Cease the gloomy awakening

History foretold
The hidden stigmata
Totally annihilating the ecstasies innumerable
Materialize the vision
Give up the ghost
Cease the gloomy awakening

    General CommentI cant believe im the only one to comment on this song yet. it is by far my favorite Dimmu Borgir song. awesome symphonics and orchestrated parts, and the "normal" singing part is the best "normal" singing done by dimmu borgir in my opinion. awesome song.
