1. The Graveyard in Moonlight's Shine

As I walk to the Gates of Eternity
I see the Spirits who dance for me
A thousand whispers of endless Pain
A Dream of Sorrow of blackend Souls
A soft Embrace of blackend Wings
I kiss the Darkness - my Destiny
The Graveyard shines in moonlightís Shine
The Dead are singing to welcome me
The cold Winds of Eternity blow
They carry me into my Grave
I lie on Roses and feel the End
My Lips are kissed tenderly by Death
Oh, how sweet does this Silence taste
Only Shadows and Moonlightís Shine
I feel my Soul will leave my Grave
I feel my Body will fade away


2. A Dream of Dancing Shadows

As the Nightside called for my Name
From the Land of Snow and Ice
For the Spirits are dancing with me
At the Path to the Unlight
I will never again see the Light
That has once cursed my mortal Soul
Great black Goddess I'm searching
For you to fulfil your Soul with mine
I have heard your Call in the Night
As I was standing about to fall
I have felt your Hand touching me
As I was falling so silently
Like a drunken Angel I fly
And my Eyes are burning bright
Towards the Land of Snow and Ice
Where all dead Angels lie

For this Night I've waited long
When I take your golden Crown
The Dust will take my flesh away
But I remain in Clouds of Dust
Towards the Unlight I will rise
Where only Dust and Darkness lies
Where my Soul will reign in Blood
And the Demons praise my Soul

I'm falling into a Shade of Grey
That carries my dying Soul away
Silently the Wind embraces me
And kisses me in Shades of Grey
Frozen Rivers all around
And the Forest grasps for me again

She kissed my Neck
And sipped my Blood
Touched me tenderly as I felt
Immortal I remain with her
No Light shall ever reach my Eye
The Night became a Part of me
Secret Voices call for me
Whispering Shadows carry me
Night's Embrace will make me free

Im dunklen Samt der Nacht
Wenn alles fort schlšft und ruht
Durch Begierde vom Schlaf erwacht
Zu suchen nach frischem Blut
Dein KŲrper blaŖ im Mondschein glšnzt
Mein Sein gepršgt von Dunkelheit
Dein Blut ist fžr mich wie Wein
Zšrtlich der KuŖ zur Ewigkeit

The Shine of the Moon
So clear and bright
The Snow on my Hands
The Frost in my Heart
This never ending Flame in me
Like a Dagger that carves in my Flesh
A Symphony composed by the Wind
How sweet does it sound
What am I now

A Dream of endless Silence
Of Life that will fall down to Dust
A Dream of endless Darkness
A Dream where I kiss the Unlight
A Dream of dancing Shadows
Of Shadows that carry my Soul
A Dream of endless Frost
Of Frost that will grasp for my Soul

I hear the Shadows scream
Calling for my Soul
They will ride with me
On the Wings of Damnation
Together with my Goddess
We're restless in the Woods
Screaming with the Shadows
Who are fading all away
And as the Sun arose
Above the snow-covered Hills
I was staring at my Queen
I will kiss her the last Time
To Dust we will fall
Together we are now
Ashes to Ashes
And Dust to Dust


3. Memories of An Ancient Time

A breeze of Darkness blessed my Soul as I rise at Armageddon

In ancient Times I was born
Son of Darkness, King of the Night
Baptized with holy Blood
I was blessed with Immortality

I am the bringer of your Death - the Fourth Horsemen of Doom
Iím the one you íll never see, look at me and you know my Name
My Eyes tell you the Truth, I laughed by the Cross as your Mother cried

For Iím the one in your Dreams, I am the Phantom in the Night
I am the Shade behind the Light, Iím the Master of the Unlight

Armageddon, Days of Darkness, Holy War, I am your Son

I rip the Sky and burn their Souls, I rise the Flame of endless Hate

For Iím the one in your Dreams, I am the Phantom in the Night
I am the Shade behind the Light, Iím the Master of the Unlight


4. The Arrival of a New Age

Iím falling deep in Sphere beyond
In bloodred Nights I make my Way

I am fading away from this Life
Alone Iím standing, God has lied to me

My Soul is not sleeping, Iím finding no Peace
I will rise against you all and your Fear is my Pride

Alone I stand beneath the Gates, to destroy Heaven to destroy the Light
As the Fire burns around me and I laugh as the Angels die
Now their Wings have turned to Ash and my Eyes are burning bright

Iím full of Hate, Iím full of Blood
I slay the Christians and enslave their Souls

Now I - I know who I am
Iím the chosen one from Hell
I have slaughered the holy ones

I am the Rebirth of the Night, Iím the chosen one from Hell
Iím the one who controls your Fear, mightier than Death
And noone knows my Name, cause I live behind the Light


5. In the Spell of Midnight's Grace

I hear the Call of the ancient Forest
A thousand Whispers embrace my Mind

I am the ancient One
Called from the Unlight
Cursed by the Might
Of the ancient Forest
His call, so clear and near
Burns in my Heart so bright
Burns like an endless Flame
In darkest Night
I see the Moon arise
Feel how he looks at me
Oh, how sweet does this Silence taste

I have fallen in the Spell of this endless Night
I fell asleep and I'll never awake again
Shadows are dancing above my closed Eyes
As I am buried in a Cloud of Dust
My Body fades away but I still remain
Endless Darkness
Only Moonlight's Shine

And I walk upon the Shadows
Beyond forgotten Woods I dance
My Eyes are like a Mirror
I'm searching for the Stars
Alone I stand on the Path to Eternity
Only the Moon shows me the Way

Slowly I walk the Stairs
Of the Moonlight
And the Raven flies with me again
Spirits dance on Shadows
As I grasp for frozen Stars
I have fallen
In the Spell of the Moonlight
Its Shine embraces me again
Blinded by this Light
I'm falling carefully
Down into a Mirror
In another World

I will fly again above the frozen River
My Blood has fallen deep
Into this endless Field of Snow
My Heart is frozen
As I'm caught in a Dream
Endless Memories are flying beside me
I will die in this Dream

See me cry at the Gate
I am lost in this Dream
And my Wings turned to dust
Never ending Pain I feel
See my Tears fall like Rain
Creating a River which carries my Pain
Where are the Shadows
Which once carried me?
Where is the Stair To the Moonlight
I have walked?

I am falling to vanish
In the darkness I love
And the Grace of Night
Sends for me out again
Look, the Mirror shines bright,
I can see it with my Eyes
Oh, great Goddess,
Your own Words
Turned to Lies

In the Spell of Midnight's Grace
My Soul's embraced
By Moonlight's Shine
In the Spell of Midnight's Grace
My Soul's embraced
By Demon's Cries

See the Stormwind rising higher
See the Mirror in my Eyes
See the Dance of cursed Shadows
See me die in my own Dream

Wake me up from endless Suffer
I'm in the Spell of Midnight's Grace


6. Storm of Pagan Fire

Fire burns bright
Through dark and cold Nights
Stormwinds arise, the Sun slowly dies
Pagan Winds blow, the Fire burns bright
Stormwinds above, Storm in my Heart

In the darkest of the Night
I can feel the Demons cry
In black Corners of my Soul
I can feel the Fire burn
In my Dreams I've seen the King
And the fallen Angel cry
In my Dreams I've seen me lough
As I stand above them all

Let the evil Spirit fly
Break the Walls that capture me
Free my Soul so it can rise
Lead me through the endless Ice

The Wolves carry my Name
Through their Midnight-Howling
And this silent whispering Voice
Calls for me from far away

And my Soul shall fly
Together with the Flames
The Thorns will tear my Flesh
As the Forest sips my Blood
And the Sun will never shine
When we are gathered in Moonlight
I will cry in Moonlight's Shine
As I become a Part of Night

Let me fly above the Seals of Sorrow
Through the seven Gates
I fly like once in my Dreams
I've dreamed of burning Wings
And Thunderstorms above
I've dreamed of my last Way
And my eternal Sleep
I'm old

Ancient Memories lie
Beyond the seven Gates
A Breeze of Frost will blow
Beyond the Path of Ninib's Gate
The Seal will gleam in Hate
As it burns into my Flesh
As I fall into endless Pain
I can hear pagan Winds blow
I see Spirits fly as I sleep in Thorns
I hear Spirits call as I close my Eyes
Oh, Lord Ninib, God of Darkness,
Hear my Screams and feel my Pain
Let my Soul fly to sleep in your Land of Shades
