all Nocternity lyrics



Ours Are The Late Hours
As wolves or bats
Through forests or the heights
Fragmented into rats
Causing loathing and fright

Ours are the late hours
Ours are the dark powers
By a gaze of ours
Any mortal cowers

In the shape of beast
With enhanced might
In the cloak of mist
Through the ether of night

Ours are the late hours
Ours are the dark powers
By a kiss of ours
The blood of mortals showers

Cold and pale is our face
White as moonlight
But tight is our embrace
And sharp is our bite

Beyond god's grace
Deprived of the sun's sight
While we feed on their race
We shall avoid the scythe

Old
Yet preserved in eternal youth...
Cold
Yet how easily we do seduce...
Bold
Though ever absent is our pulse...

Those two in the neck
Are points of no coming back...

Ours are the late hours
Ours are the dark powers
Among the withering flowers
Rise our ivory towersback to top
When The Horizon Is Just A Legend
Towards daily duty drowsy I go
Even before the sun to his own attends
When cold winds blow and whistle with sorrow
The very last moments before night ends.

With only the moon to witness my doom
Bound to come soon in this night of Autumn

Litten by scarce streetlights, with their shy glow
That dares not shed its beam too far, the land
Lies covered by such thick fog one now vows
That the horizon is but a legend.

With only the moon to witness my doom
Bound to come soon in this night of Autumn

In these moments before the fog dispels
When the sky blurs and dyes all blue at dawn
Building a bridge between worlds parallel
And we breathe deep the clouds, which are still down
My body follows to the sunny hell
Yet in spirit, in this magic I drown

While routine shall keep my now empty shell
With the mists my soul shall forever dwell...back to top
Carpe Noctem
Now that the ever burning sphere
Down the horizon disappears
Nocturnal beasts regain the earth.
They celebrate with joy night's birth
Waking me up from dreamless sleep
To quench this thirst for blood so deep.

The night is now young...
...but for how long?

Hunting in the night so lonely
I wander accompanied only
By the bright light of the moon.
High it shines, a glow in the gloom,
While on pitiful mortals I prey
Until the dark skies bleed sunrays.

The night is now young...
...but for how long?

The wolves howl and low hoot the owls.
In praise of the newborn their chanting goes.
Yet the time never ceases to flow...
Oh child, why do you have to grow?back to top
