Erotic and dreamlike still in its mortal disguise
A passionate ritual in the ruined garden theater
The painted angels, shadowed high above
Once they gathered to worship at the picture of me
Like a whisper where there are no words
Appears the perplexed, the statue of might
In the cradle of the next generation
A spiraling ruin, lost in the gathering dust

The faces you saw in the withering garden
I witnessed the flickering, made to look like stone
Quivering like little figures lost in broken flames
Never to forget again the names carved in horrid flesh

Those words drawn in water, become our legacy of fantasies

Burn the pictures
So unexpected in this strange deserted place
Once opened its secrets would become the world
Its attributes would continue to unfold forever

"Through the fabric of the promised future eons
I offer this suffering of mu unwanted father"

And the stars did wander, separated in the forbidden universe

    General CommentThis is actually my favorite Dimmu Borgir song, the keyboard makes it much better than it would have been otherwise, it gives it kind of a mysterious, black magic-y feel. I also love these lyrics, totally black magic:

    "In the cradle of the next generation - A spiraling ruin.. Lost in the gathering dust!"

    "Quivering like little figures lost and broke, in flames, never to forget again the name, charred in horrid flesh." (Always heard it that way)

    "Through the fabric of the promised future aeons.. I offer the suffering of my unwanted father!"

    and of course the last one, "And the stars did wander, seperated in a forbidden universe.."

    General CommentThe beginning of the song is so orgasmic! I love these symphonic parts on Dimmu's songs.
