Ebony Dressed For Sunset

Unshadow thyselves children
The reign in flesh begins again...

V empire
Funereal majesty awake
Cneajna wreathed in snake
Draconis talons rake...

So haunted is my silent heart
Dreaming only of the moon
When velvet darkness falls tonight
The thirst crescends anew...

Only for you

Inspired to mortal nightmare
Ebony dressed for sunset
In the dulcet whispers of the damned...

    the lyrics are missing...

    unshadow thyselves children the reign in flesh begins again

    v-empire funureal majesty awake cnejna wreathed in snake drakonis talons rake

    so haunted is my silent heart dreaming only of the moon when velvet darkness falss tonight a thirst cretends a new only for you

    i think this song is about the awakening of evil. And the evil calls his children from their grave, exhumes in other word.

    does anybody know what "ebony" is? i read it as a "black tree" somewhere...

    This song is simple. Though amazing and atmospheric. And Ebony is a reference to the color black. If you knew Dani's lyric writing well enough, or any other poet for that matter, they don't always use words in their fullest literal meaning. This song is simply an introduction into the dark theme of the EP. Which of course speaks of mysticism, vampirism, romance, and "The Rape and Ruin of Angels".

    did anyone watch the live nottingham concert dvd ... there dani says "this song is dedicated to mighty sabbath" right at the beginning of this song. What does he mean? is this song dedicated to Black Sabbath?

    Nah, you misheard, he said "This song is dedicated to the mighty Sabbat". Sabbat are an 80s thrash metal band, one of Dani's main influences.

    Amazing introduction into the album. The Vempire album has the best lyrics by far out of all of the other albums by Cradle
