Dimmu Borgir

Spiritual Black Dimensions tracks

Lyrics

1. REPTILE

Glowing eyes, staring eyes
Manifest of evil presence
With entities swept in disease and decay
A fall from paradise beyond redemption
Wrathchild of afterglow

He who speaks of nightly treasures
He who wraps the serpent around my neck
He who pours poisonous wine in my chalice
He who lets me serve and slip away

And so I will take shelter
In the absence of the light
Hiding like a masked miniature in the dark
A revennt without relief it seems
For the art of becoming a progeny
And to be raised in such curse
Is to forever creep among naive mortals
Infesting the dead in herds

(Infesting the dead in herds)

His grandeur of guidance in roundtrips obscure
He who immerse my hands in sullen thrills
His path on which domination linger
He who dares to prove the sanity of mine

He who speaks of nightly treasures
He who lets me serve and slip away

Black unearthly void creatures crawling
Forbidden, forgotten, fairly underrated
Bastards in the shape of angels holding my hands
Passing me what is left of the wine

Bastards in the shape of angels holding my hands
Passing me what's left of the wine
 
 
2. BEHIND THE CURTAINS OF NIGHT - PHANTASMAGORIA

A mental inner vortex
As possessions through a wolf's eye
Envisioning the eclipse
No longer to be blinded by a sunrise

In this final benediction
Confronted by mirages of imminent mortality
Time's set to end the suffering

So follow, I will cherish the secrecies of hearts

Chased by the black shepherds
Behind the curtains of night
Been found as a tool in their seduction
Fatal haze

An escape into abomination
Perished to phasma
A syndrome of another aeon

Soul-obsequial inhesion

Resurged in torrents of abysmal thoughts
Lost in a helix, blackest might
In stealth I do seek deliverance
In phantasmagoria, vortex utopia
 
 
3. DREAMSIDE DOMINIONS

When the ghastly mourners awakens from sleep
And the volant funeral crows are watching
Like evil omens in shadowed murmur
They welcome me again

Agonized and flattered to once become
A part of this horror scenario
I descend with arms open wide

When the ghastly mourners awakens from sleep
And the volant funeral crows are watching

Armored and filled with painful pleasure
Reflecting streams of monstrous mirages
I will not hide!

Losing control in seductive madness
Spiritual revelations, apocalyptic hypnosis
Dead colors appear within unhallow graves
Alone in awe I face abhorrence below

Trapped inside to suffer in silence
Torn apart in mind and sense
Baptized in this nightly glamor
Rites of splendid essence

Losing control in seductive madness
Spiritual revelations, apocalyptic hypnosis
Dead colors appear within unhallow graves
Alone in awe I face abhorrence below

Trapped inside to suffer in silence
Torn apart in mind and sense
Baptized in this nightly glamor
Rites of splendid essence

Agonized and flattered I once became
A part of the horror scenario
Armored and filled with painful pleasure
I did not hide

Now when the gates are no longer shut
I withdraw from the light of the sun

4. UNITED IN UNHALLOWED GRACE

Unfolding her carnal desires to me
With tempting eyes she does receive
A hunter of the night - the devil's whore
May her cursed beauty haunt me forever

We embrace the madness gathered as one
Mourning dead passion, she comes to me
A fate awaits us in the night
In the ruins of creation we will unite

Unfolding her carnal desires to me
With tempting eyes she does receive
A hunter of the night - the devil's whore
May her cursed beauty haunt me forever

She comes to me - a shining beacon
Confused by the sensual innovation
Passion - towards image of mortal evil
Passion - embraced by the image of united death

The enigma lies broken...

Searching for those precious moments
Reaching for a higher state of existence
Like a newborn migrant in the void

I am smitten by the forbidden fruit
Possessed by moments of dark splendor
To walk the nightmare terrains forever

The enigma lies broken...

Possessed by moments of dark splendor
To walk the nightmare terrains forever
United with new unhallowed grace
This cursed beauty haunts me forever
 
 
5. THE PROMISED FUTURE AEONS

Erotic and dreamlike still in its mortal disguise
A passionate ritual in the ruined gardens theatre
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 aeons
I offer this suffering of my unwanted father..."

"And the stars did wander, separated in the forbidden universe"
 
6. THE BLAZING MONOLITH OF DEFIANCE

With hearts of midnight
Brightened by his infernal light
We stand as a monolith of wrath
United under the goat of a thousand young

Two horns thrust upwards in defiance
Three inverted as the trinity denied
A phalanx of mourners in black
Falling towards nightly terror

Unleash the tempted beast
Raised your horns in prideful blasphemy
I'll be your guide into the glorious darkness
And enchant you like a taste of sin

Unleash the tempted beast
Chant Theron in words of blazing scorn

Grant me my dark desires
Strengthened through the power of Satan

Take pleasure in the torment of the wretched
And rejoice in the delight of the flesh
Behold the face of Satan
And walk the fields of erotic fire

Hunt the heavens ...

Godless temples beckon
Through gleaming landscapes of horrid nightmare
Gathered between symbols and signs
A glow of new light is born out of the night

Give into your lust and carnal desires
In twisted blood-dripping ecstasy
In the name of Satan
I lead you into temptation
 
 
7. THE INSIGHT AND THE CATHARSIS

Passenger on confessional course
Unlock with the key you behold within
Repair the shadow of your mind
And come awake

"Oh, dreadful angel of mine
Enrich me with the vastness of your being
Rigid father, teach me to comprehend
I'll commit myself to understand
To be faithful and the instrument
So that the ones with blindfold can see what I have seen
That there is nothing in between
For I am the accomplice...
Aghast and tender indulged in sin
Embraced by loneliness, legions who grin
I blunder into the realms of slumber
I collide with the obscure
And see the last fraction of light go by"

Plundering the sanity from the insane
And providing appearances in black
Carefully swept in decadent spheres
But faces in this world always remain darkened

In circles of dominance, emotional deeps unite
Fiction and transcendence woven together
In the essence of purity lies wisdom
Join the forces: the spiritual black dimension

What more do you need of proof
Human hands conforming cloven hoofs
For I know the secrets and lies behind all truths
Knowledge is power and the power is mine
It's all mine!

So let the children come to me
And share the limitless ways to infinity
Escape death and disease
And behold youth and vitality
 
 
8. GROTESQUERY CONCEILED WITHIN MEASURELESS MAGIC

"In the shadows of my gallow
I'd rather absent the hallow"

Thy presence made pleasure of pain
Thy madness turned sanity into vain
Profoundly wicked owner of soul
The mysteries of thy creation beheld by ghouls

Diabolically disguised heavenly bodies
Atrociously desired primordial elements
Plunging through the confused heart of sulfur
In all this darkness, how can Man see?

"Poor misguided fool, it's not god you're talking to.
I am not impostor, hiding behind pearly walls
However I'm still yet to be found, known
I shall guide you on your midnight-ride as the sun fades black
Beyond your grotesque imagination, my name will be revealed
The blood of Christ can't heal your wounds
Give me all of yours, and I'll give you mine"

I am the hidden fantasy
In the secret of my knowledge
There is no god but me

In this shadowy world all are nameless
Outstanding, dressed in majestic splendor
Touched by the flames of eternal fire
How i long for your embrace, uttermost desire
 
 
9. ARCANE LIFEFORCE MYSTERIA

In perplexed dementia, where sanity is my vanity
With honor I bear the mark of Satan
Triumphant beast in heavenly defeat
Disguised in gloom, I wear the mask of Satan

Ride the beast through paradise
Still vipers these mortal burdens
We arise as the portals take form
I leave my feathers again

Infidels and scarecrows all fallen from heaven
Captured by the sin of the beast
Mesmerized in total chaos
Engulfed in an overflow of selfish might

Swept through arcane mysteries
Forlorn in a maze of torment
Raped by the sanctity of the unholy
Reveals a hell i never dreamed of

Bewildered by the Arcane Lifeforce Mysteria
I shed my skin once again

Swept through arcane mysteries
Forlorn in a maze of torment

In perplexed dementia, where sanity is my vanity
With honor I bear the mark of Satan
Triumphant beast in heavenly defeat
Disguised in gloom, I wear the mask of Satan
 
10. MASSES FOR THE NEW MESSIAH

In massing darkness we stand united
Raging above inferior sheep
A convoy of souls swept into the night
Hearts strengthened with black fire passion

In us is fulfilled the prophecy of Satan
Evolution of the inner shrine
In us is maintained the revelation of Satan
Innocence brought to an end

In honor of thy unearthly creation
We bring forth thy divine form
Vanity throughout any conceptions
Blazed and bound for the days are coming

Infernal madness, unholy ascendance
Christian death abound in mourning perversion
Cherished sacred icons torn to pieces
They'll chase the serpent in everlasting nightmare

Disharmonic illusions of strings bending loose
Wrapped,penetrating skin
Listen to the music of their agony
Eyes made of glass, mirrors within
