Our bodies as one body. One ghastly entity. Our souls as one soul. One spectral eternal flow. You are the moon, I am the night. As for ourselves. You are mine. I am yours. We are death and life. No regret. No retrospection. We are death. We are life. No regret. No retrospection.You are the moon, I am the night. Rotting in the sun. Only love and lechery. Your beauty is perishable. Brave soul born for pain. Elastic immaterialness. Majestic dormancy. Filth of transient pleasures. Depraved weakness. To rive the holy fruit. To take a heart. To burn a heart. To eat from thy flesh. I feed you with mold. I bathe my wounds in salt. To rive the holy fruit. To take a heart. To burn a heart. To eat from thy flesh. I control your temple. Stars seen through the eyes of the animal. Lungs filled with the magical night air. I give you my heart. To burn my heart. Rive the apple. Eat from my flesh. I am the night, becoming the day. My soul is a river. The moon of a poet. No regret. No retrospection. You are mine. I am yours. We are death and life.
Tu es cette perle de lune, hurlante au creux de la nuit. Et moi je suis cet astre brulant ce qu’il reste de vie. Pardonne ma violence si je crame ton visage. Tu souffres en mon absence. Loin de ta surface criblée d’impacts. Je ferai briller pour des milliards d’années ta beauté sélène, qui a excité ma colère et mes peines solaires. J’ai bon espoir que tu prennes place devant moi pour une dernière éclipse. Notre grand soir. Toutes les autres danses célestes s’arrêtent. S’arrêtent. S’arrêtent. Tes grands yeux noirs, creusés dans cette face sombre, capturent et avalent toute la lumière du monde. Qui en crève. Nous sommes la vie et la mort. La lune et le soleil.
Track Name: Clouds of the Mourning Spring
Ghost of the past. Endless sky. Ending. Tear the manacle. Open the gate. My vision. My universe. In the forgotten garden, peace is invulnerable. My blood is cold. My mind is old. No more words to say. No will, no power. I adorn my body with your innards. Your blood is maquillage. My dreams are joyous. Dreams of eternal death. I want to dance on your bowels. I will destroy you. In the forgotten garden, peace is invulnerable. I feel no pity anymore. You took everything from me. Believe me, you will bleed. Believe me. Eternal ignorance. Eternal hate. I will destroy you. Endless sky. Ending.
Track Name: Memories of Dead Dreams
Awaiting the tide. Kiss of life. Landscapes melting. Waves calling. Thy kingdom come. Memories of dead dreams. Floating away. The now is reversed. Long-forgotten days. Vernal nightime. Spectral follower. Haunted avenues. Slow shadows. Path leading to graves. Floating away. The now is reversed. Long-forgotten days.
