Forth after dark... a time I do know
In my kingdom... I enter to my own world
Open the gate... of a mountain of dark
Rising with the shadow... a dark world made for me

Black my mind... black my heart...
In my kingdom... I enter to my own world
Open the gate... of a mountain of dark
Rising with the shadow... a dark world made for me

Forth after dark... a time I do know
In my kingdom... I enter to my own world
Open the gate... of a mountain of dark
Rising with the shadow... a dark world made for me

In my kingdom cold...
At the mountains of madness
Unending grimness
These mountains which I heart
In my kingdom cold...
At the mountains of madness
Unending grimness this kingdom it is mine...

    General CommentOne way to look at the song is this:
    Song is about loneliness of those who sacrifice social life in pursuit of knowledge(as philosophers do).
    "my kingdom" as in my thoughts, life, existence isolated from others.
    "cold" - as in the saying "break the ice of conversation". this is it. Kingdom is cold because this lonely person can't talk to anyone because there is awkward ice, whenever he/she talks to people and they do not understand him/her. This is often true for philosophers and other intelligent people when they face people.
    "world made for me" - basically with every action and decision, he/she took the dark path of philosophy pursuing knowledge, thus failing to achieve happiness. Basically the converse of the "ignorance is bliss" saying.
    "mountains of madness" - the source of his/her unhappiness is in the way they think. He/she does what is in accordance to reason, but doesn't reach the goal of happiness and connection with others. He/she thus recognizes that this behavior is "irrational" and mad. But he/she isn't able to abandon the path of knowledge, it is his/her kingdom.

    General CommentIMO this song is about "The Kingdom, cold" that everyone enters, when they get lost in their own cold, "dark" thoughts. When you submerge into your own thoughts, you find frequently that your thoughts become darker and colder. Everyone has their own mad, cold world that they enter now and again when they want to forget reality.
