Through acrid clouds of summer flies
The garden swells with a thousand more wise
Forever flung to celestial dreams
Clawing at the grave of the dead nazarene

I watch the storm approaching
The darkness calls my name
The trees are growing restless
They feel the season change
Their fruit has putrefied
Forbidden once and bound to die
The thread of life lies severed
On the brink of paradise

Grinning winds of hate unfurled
Dash towers tall that grip the sun
Talons stretch her veil
Reclamation, our time has come

Autumn spreads its golden wings
And lays the path for those unseen
A tangled web of evil spun at last
Winter spawn from barren thighs
To readdress, to slay the blind
And throw the reins untethered to the skies

They pray to the full moon rising
Diana moving with such infinite grace
Wrapped alone in a blanket of nightfall
How many secrets can they read by your face?

Will they know of majesty
Of beauty held in dream-dead sleep
And scarlet seas that bleed the frozen shores?
Will their "god" of bridled love
Assuage our rule from planes above
Or shrink in fear from Chaos roused for war?


Wrest askew the nails
That have held you, lurking deep
September prayers are waning
Burn the shrines of fettered sheep
Spearhead the insurrection
Of a world that seeks no end
"We are what we are, what we shall be, again..."

Appear; draped in terror
To the comfort of your kin
Stain the milky sunset red
And let the other in...

Summer's dying...

    General CommentThe mention of Diana, if I'm not mistaken, is referring to Diana goddess of the moon.

    General CommentThis song is not about the end of summer, it appears that way but they mention to much about war. This lyric to me seems to be about the dead rising up and beginning a war against humanity. Clearly Dani was writing about undead. Winter spawns from barren thighs
    to readdress, to slay the blind. I think hes refering to the blind as relgions. Will their "god" of bridled love
    assuage our rule from planes above
    or shrink in fear from Chaos roused for war? there its questioning if god with help the holy in the war. September prayers are waning
    burn the shrines of fettered sheep another reference of killing religion... as everyone knows sheep repersent gods followers.

    Stain the milky sunset red
    and let the others in... I believe thats saying to kill humanity and let the "others" (speaking of demons?) in. Its saying that the war is beginning at the end of summer.

    But then again, maybe im wrong. In many songs Dani writes about winter ruling over summer... but "their fruit has putrified
    forbidden once and bound to die " is there not alot of reference to the garden of eden is this song? I think its about the unholy warring against the holy... just like most of his songs :P

    General CommentInteresting interpretation indeed, SithspawN.

    My own interpretation is, the song uses the metaphor of autumn and winter's inevitable triumph over summer to describe the triumph of the "Satanic" and/or pagan, always rabidly anti-Christian forces that Dani Filth is always writing about. (I know, that sounds pretentious.)

    If Dani meant the lyrics as an experiment, well, I think it's an interesting one, but not his finest work.

    General Commentafter the quote" We are what we are what we shall be again" , I think that guitar solo is the best EVER.

    General CommentI agree that the song is a metaphor for pagan revival, the christian summer is dying.
