Black Winter Day - Fear tracks

Lyrics

AMORPHIS
"BLACK WINTER DAY"




1. BLACK WINTER DAY

This is how the lucky feel
How the blessed think
Like daybreak in spring
The sun on a spring morning

But how do I feel
In my gloomy depths?

Like the flat brink of a cloud
Like a dark night in autumn
A black winter day
No, darker than that
Gloomier than an autumn night




2. FOLK OF THE NORTH

(Instrumental)




3. MOON AND SUN

Where has the sun gone from us
Where is the moon lost to us
The moon will not gleam at all
Nor will the sun shine at all

Death opens its mouth
The son of the Northlander
Camo to look, to listen

"There beyond the river is hero walking"

He took one step and took another
To the north's shore he hurried
He drew his sword, wrenched the iron
Snatched from the sheath the harsh one
Upon whose point the moon shone
Upon whose hilt the sun flashed
Upon whose back a horse stands
He uttered a word, spoke thus,
"There the sun has gone from you
The sun gone and the moon lost"




4. MOON AND SUN PART II: NORTH'S SON

Go, look at the moon
And inspect the sun!
Now they are in the sky
Right in their old places

Hail, moon, for gleeming
Fair one for showing your face
Dear sun for dawning
And daylight for coming up!

Dear moon, you're out from the rock
Fair day from the cliff
You've risen as a golden cuckoo
As a silver dove
Up to where you used to live

Fare well now upon
Your way, upon your journey
Sweetly end your curve beautifully
Come at evening into joy!




GOREFEST
"FEAR"




5. FEAR

Kinda alone
With a friend called fear
Locked up in a world
That's called your life

Talking to walls
That close in on you
Not able to run
You are frozen inside

Rest in your misery
Never to escape
It all has its reasons
It's all been arranged

On from day one
Thrown onto this world
Born in sin
Being the silent one




6. RAVEN

Wide open eyes, black covers the sky
Spreading wings covering me
I see my name written in sand
But there is only black
Where I stand
The Raven circling my heart
Looking at me
Death surrounding my heart
Pulling at me
So invisible, still I can see
Wide open eyes, black covers the sky
Spreading wings covering me
Is this the aftermath of my life
My last and final day
Has the struggle come to an end
And will it all just go away
The Raven circling my heart
Looking at me
Earth surrounding my heart
Pulling at me
So invisible, still I can see
Was it good to learn and walk
Strong back against the wind
Am I being tested and found okay
When it greets me and flies away
The Raven circling my heart
Looking at me
Death surrounding my heart
Pulling at me
Looking at me
And I can see the Raven
