North From Here lyrics by Sentenced
Frozen soil...A dim moonlight I┤ve been..on this glorious ride Raise the arms in victory I┤ve seen...on this glorious night I┤ve kept my eyes open wide Through my dream I was given a hint:
The scars in the wind Guiding my path to the dark The breath of the silent night Approaching from a distance Wings I cut a thousand cuts Streams run (down) along my arms The stars blasted into darkness Change scents; colours Catch..! The sleepless eyes Sterilized by drops of pride Skies...mirror...screams Shapes foundering into the scene Wings Hate in my heart Revenge in my mind and my words I rinse my hair in blood And mock at your lousy God I cut a thousand cuts Streams run (down) along my arms Oh the scars in the wind..! Guiding my pathway on my ride Catch death The sleepless eyes Sterilized by drops of pride Skies...mirror...screams Shapes foundering into the scene
Come to me - oh, mighty force of my inner will... Raise the power of knowledge and give me the spirit to...kill! Prepare my being to conquer what┤s to be mine... - For eternity The aftermath of a battle to come A vivid vision before my eyes The storm has calmed and peace has landed No more are we under the influence of lies The false ones have been put to their death by the purest form of pure impurity The sky turns jetblack - We breed in the dark - Reborn to a new reality Wind sweeps the fields where they all died... The fields where their blood was spilt... The hordes of celestial light saw the fields of blood...once Wind sweeps the fields where they all died... The fields where weak blood was spilt... The hordes of celestial lies saw the fields of blood I summon my inner self to strenghten my final will My will destroy the promised land of thousand fakes I summon my mental force for it is mightier than your sword Reveal the powers of Wrath - tomorrow I am your GOD!!! ...This is the dawn of the final war ...I shall bring you all down Kill ┤em all!!! The victory is written in my very flesh - Enscribed in my very mind Before daylight strikes the earth will be purified and no pretender shall walk on this ground The shadows retiring with the darkness of night and hatred is growing within The first sunbeams of this day of glory reflect hatred in my eyes - the triumph of Death
Fire... Fire...thou of forces the mightiest Flame...thou wisdom the greatest Come forth for thou art needed Come...I was marked for thee... Fire... It was written in the runes drowned in the sands of time It was whispered from behind the walls of the ancient wind
A gathering in the cold, in the North, in the dark lands of Pohjola Where the sun had not been crossing the sky nor seen for centuries... We were brought together by oaths we had once sworn - by blood... ...once together drawn... We had gathered all our forces Called together all the heroes Equipped a hundred swordsmen And a thousand men with crossbows Strengthened by hate and the thirst for the enemies┤ blood We lay in wait for the season of no light We had seen the frozen mist - we weren┤t afraid to die And the oaths we had sworn gave a reason to live on A Calm before the Storm (We were) Awaiting the Winter Frost ...And then a storm arose in fury The sky was shattered by lightning... Awaiting the Winter Frost As the sky blackened and the stars turned red The frost greeted us with a cold northern breeze Off with their heads! Off with their fuckin┤ heads!!! Oh, the time had come... To slaughter the hordes of cowardice And cleanse the North from lies We had gathered all our forces Called together all the heroes Equipped a hundred swordsmen And a thousand men with crossbows We raised our swords Grasped the irons Lifted our bows And chose the arrows The false ones┤ hordes were put to the sword The strong and the weak, one by one... Their race was slaughtered to the very last man Our bloodfend was done as their bodies reddened the land Awaiting the Winter Frost The reign of the dark and the cold The spell of pure hate Awaiting the Winter Frost And the heathen peace was found
Fade into dream... Deep into a dormant pseudo-life Drown into night... Pass through the gate of sleep I see faded colours... I see a landscape so calm... To live a life asleep...is to master mortality I wander between these worlds On a quest to find a key When life seems to be lost And death comes to me door I vanish into a dream Into a place so cold, yet warm Within my flesh A thorn is molesting my sleep It┤s teasing me... Am I human after all? (no) Faded in dream... Beyond the wall of sleep For the sleep of death... It is the most divine Sandman stabs me in the back... Lord Ego, Punish me! Cleanse me from humanity! Reveal the fucking Beast! I must drown the human ignorance Deep in the lake of fire - Drink the wine Sandman, stab me in the back! Lord Ego...Punish me! To live within a dream...is to master mortality The quest to find a key...Still lives!
At the dawn... The golden moon was shining bright With the silvery eyes of death They had seen me salute the flames in the sky ...Northern Lights... ...Northern Lights... While you were asleep I was awake to be part of the dark While you were asleep I was awake to find the truth I had sought for ...through all my life... Taken by the North wind blow Into the icy abyss of colours As I fulfilled my true self I knew your world is not for me
(now flee...) I flee...back to the time when man was true I see...life as it was meant for me On this trail I meet my ancestors On this trail I find their wisdom From the wall of frozen time I see my own reflection Born...in the wrong century Torn...to a wrong reality A winter chill - A frozen, dead reality A blackened will - A strange, macabre certainty Pagan roots! Heathen life! ...if life was...EPIC! My heart belongs to the past - I feel attraction for the night - my mind to the ancient times - I view this life like a lifeless rock I want to be trapped under ice within my peaceful glacial tomb Far from the epoch of trend In the Aeon of Frost - In league with the North! On this trail I meet my ancestors On this trail I find their wisdom From the wall of frozen time I see my own reflection Born...in the wrong century Torn...to a wrong reality Our northernmost hearts don┤t belong to this world...
