Hypnotic Dirge 2013​/​14 | The Wild Haunts Us Still; Decay and Atrophy

by Hypnotic Dirge Records

Der Duft nassen Mooses steigt auf Heißer Atem erfüllt die Luft Kleine Tierchen aufgeschreckt in tiefer Nacht Vom seltsamen Spiel Ich blicke tief in deine Augen Ich erkenne dich Ein wundersamer Augenblick Aus zwei mach eins …aus zwei mach eins… Deine zarte Hand Legt den Strick mir um den Hals Ein letzter Moment Ich bin frei Ich blicke tief in deine Augen Ich erkenne dich Ein wundersamer Augenblick Aus zwei mach eins …aus zwei mach eins…
This soul is amorphous glowing through nature in strange patterns desperate follower, I wandered untraceably far from home Lured by its trail – flashes of gold lured to the mountain & lulled to sleep This was the one day no child should have slept the caravan had come to take those marked at birth for sacrifice in the River of Muninn I was among the marked – the ring of youth – appointed to be drowned at dawn – on the chosen day – but I slept through the conjuring – slept through the drums & horns – I would have been a guardian – Watching the grace of wisdom – blossom through the ages – instead I watched the stones & torches – of the village banish me – Self disintegrated – Passion untarnished – There must be another way – The entity I was chasing – The vicar of my failure – expands upon my grief a notion – glory in the wake of abandonment – the river is still mine to take – the soul is still mine to guard – immortal passion in fast aging skin – my hands were made to hold the wind
In lichterlosen Weiten irre ich umher von einem Ozean aus Dunkel werde ich verzehrt Getrieben hat mich einst die Suche nach dem Licht doch es zu finden vermochte ich nicht In lichterlosen Weiten warte ich schon lang die Gedanken stets mit Finsternis verhangen Mein Herz lebt noch in alten Tagen, bevor die Kälte kam und ich kann es kaum ertragen, was es aus mir macht Geflüsterte Nachricht, luftig wie der Wind getragen ans Ohr, doch für das Herz bestimmt irgendwo dort draußen, genauso kalt wie ich ein Funke kanns entzünden, und es wird zum Licht Geflüsterte Nachricht, ein trauriges Gedicht getragen ans Herz, doch die Seele nimmt es sich bittersüße Hoffnung für mich allein und ewig schmerzhaft für uns zu zweit In lichterlosen Weiten nehme ich das Schicksal an in Einsamkeit und Stille verblasst die Hoffnung ganz wozu noch warten, wenn ein Leben nicht reicht? wie sollen die Wunden jemals verheilen? So soll die Kälte mich holen so soll das Ende mich befreien
on candystripe legs spiderman comes softly through the shadow of the evening sun stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead looking for the victim shivering in bed searching out fear in the gathering gloom and suddenly! a movement in the corner of the room! and there is nothing i can do when i realise with freight that the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps closer now closer to the foot of the bed and softer than shadow and quicker than flies his arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes "be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy don't struggle like that or i will only love you more for it's much too late to get away or turn on the light the spiderman is having you for dinner tonight" and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand million shivering furry holes and i know that in the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold and the spiderman is always hungry...
Напрасно в невыносимой агонии силюсь открыть глаза, Чтоб вечность узреть в отражении разбитых зеркал. Мне кажется, я упустил сей момент, оставшийся в прошлом. Чёрными красками воспоминания на белых листах кровоточат. Мы держимся за руки вольны, невесомы. За секунду до смерти. В одном шаге от пропасти. Мы держимся крепко за руки вольны, невесомы. За секунду до смерти. В одном шаге от пропасти. Вальсирует одинокая пара над бескрайним спокойствием моря. Вдруг вихрь лёгким движением поднял к сгорающим звёздам. Тону в локонах света, не надеясь уже спастись. Прости, но я скоро ослепну. Мне б на мгновение веки сомкнуть. Мне не хватает тепла её бархатных губ. Чувства рвутся наружу. Сердце бьётся в закрытую грудь. Мы держимся за руки вольны, невесомы. За секунду до смерти. В одном шаге от пропасти. Мы парим в воздухе. Вольны, невесомы. За секунду до смерти. Сделав шаг к пропасти.
In the earth where the roads are covered with shades your limbs are without strength. In a long corridor I hear singing shades, my perspective is changed, I can't see anymore depth in the friends life. I have been invited to your banquet. There isn't anybody now. Why the void is inside of me? Now the night devours me and now I go away with the last lights. What has remained it's only an empty wealth. Looks at this red light, it turn on with the evil. You feel the perfume that brings away what it's terrestrial. Who is near me, he will wake up before the time. This is the moment of truth. I am now kneel, I pray, I pray. I will tell to all when it will be the moment.
Forget the everything This circle is a game I'm tired of playing But the role plays again It feels like a dreaming Where sirens paint the silence (but) we are talking through the eyes In a maze full of distance I want to escape Far away We lost among the shadows The poison crawls through the vein That's more like a nightmare That's more like a nightmare I want to escape Far away We lost among the shadows The poison crawls through the vein
