Track Name: Awaken the Dark Spirits
Devastated desert, burning remnants of land
Hollow cries – they don’t matter and are of no help
I am lost – within myself – helpless,
Carried by the water to the other side
Only a shadow of what I used to be
A scream that makes my bones break – my heart stops
The blood leaks out of my skin
I am burning alive – or am I dead?
A piercing shriek of despair,
Followed by a mocking laughter
I enter the burning fire in the cave
The eternal fire of doom, flames of purity
Awaken the dark spirits from the past,
Long forgotten dark spells
Dancing in the flames, with fire
Powerless, like a marionette
I let the unknown forces lead me
Body and mind dissociate
I can see myself in the flames’ embrace
As if it were a dream
A dream of another world
And of another self
Another existence, which is not life but death
I can feel the flames
Embracing my body
The blood leaks out of my skin
I am burning alive – or am I dead?
A piercing shriek of despair,
Followed by a mocking laughter
The dark spirits are alive!
The pain persists,
There is nothing that can save you from yourself
The letting go of your fears,
Of your thoughts – it never happens
Track Name: The Dance of Shadows
I dreamt of rain and fire,
Drops of rain dripping – slowly, magically
Or are these drops of blood?
And I dreamt of people – or creatures?
Dancing in the fire
Ghostly movement of silhouettes
As if someone – or something – was pulling their strings
A sinister dance of marionettes according to their will
So pure and perfect
I can go through fire and through water now
And face
Destruction!
The dead body reunites with the earth,
The waters wash away the rest
The wind blows away the thoughts
Blood soaks the ground
Fire eliminates everything
In the enchanting purity of its flames
I can hear it now
An eternal, universal melody never written down,
Whispered by all those who died
The dark spirits are gathering
Around the fire, tethering
The dancing silhouettes to an invisible lead
To feast on the souls of the Dead
(Of) the Lost
(Of) the Fallen
(Of) the Hopeless
(Of) the Broken
The dead now reunited in this world,
A dimension I never believed even existed …
Possessed by the burning fire
I fall into the abyss without a bottom
The dark spirits are gathering
Around the fire, tethering
The dancing silhouettes to an invisible lead
To feast on the souls of the Dead
(Of) the Lost
(Of) the Fallen
(Of) the Hopeless
(Of) the Broken
This is a dimension I never believed even existed …
Or is it a state of mind?
Possessed by the burning fire
I throw myself into the abyss of flames
Falling, drowning, burning
Or just fading away?
Now there is chaos
Chaos everywhere!
Now, here is fire
Fire everywhere!
Decay and return to the earth
Will the soul rise toward the sky
Or rather fall into the burning abyss
Lost in the chaos of intrusive self-destructive thoughts
This absurd deafening noise in my head
Fruit of pure imagination
An invisible poison
Leading me to pass into oblivion
Track Name: Chaos and Destruction
I wake up trapped in fire,
An enormous burning circle
Melting in the scorching heat of infernal flames
I begin to fall
Suddenly in the void
What was up is down now
There is no left or right
Not certain if I’m burning or drowning
I am overwhelmed
Devastated
Abandoned thoughts, or pushed aside,
Have submerged into the present
This place is haunted
And so is my mind
The venomous thoughts of (self-)destruction
This is the realm of fire
This is the realm of chaos
This is the realm of death
Here dwells destruction
Enter this fire
The fire of doom
Let the flames of purity
Embrace you
The blood is warming up, it boils
The flesh departs from the soul
All your life spinning in front of your eyes
In light speed
Falling down towards an inexplicable emptiness
That used to be your life
What is to expect?
There was nothing when I lived
And I am heading towards an even greater nothingness
One who lives is destined to die
One who rises is destined to fall
One cannot escape decay and death
Enter this fire (Burn!)
The fire of doom (Burn!)
Let the flames of purity (Burn!)
Embrace you (Burn!)
This is the realm of fire
This is the realm of chaos
This is the realm of death
Here dwells destruction
There is a certain inexplicable beauty of this darkness
So dark yet blindingly bright
Flashes of light of the burning fire
In the deepest darkness one has ever encountered
Track Name: Les Litanies de Satan
Ô toi, le plus savant et le plus beau des Anges,
Dieu trahi par le sort et privé de louanges,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Ô Prince de l'exil, à qui l'on a fait tort
Et qui, vaincu, toujours te redresses plus fort,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui sais tout, grand roi des choses souterraines,
Guérisseur familier des angoisses humaines,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui, même aux lépreux, aux parias maudits,
Enseignes par l'amour le goût du Paradis,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Ô toi qui de la Mort, ta vieille et forte amante,
Engendras l'Espérance, — une folle charmante!
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui fais au proscrit ce regard calme et haut
Qui damne tout un peuple autour d'un échafaud.
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui sais en quels coins des terres envieuses
Le Dieu jaloux cacha les pierres précieuses,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi dont l'oeil clair connaît les profonds arsenaux
Où dort enseveli le peuple des métaux,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi dont la large main cache les précipices
Au somnambule errant au bord des édifices,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui, magiquement, assouplis les vieux os
De l'ivrogne attardé foulé par les chevaux,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui, pour consoler l'homme frêle qui souffre,
Nous appris à mêler le salpêtre et le soufre,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui poses ta marque, ô complice subtil,
Sur le front du Crésus impitoyable et vil,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Toi qui mets dans les yeux et dans le coeur des filles
Le culte de la plaie et l'amour des guenilles,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Bâton des exilés, lampe des inventeurs,
Confesseur des pendus et des conspirateurs,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Père adoptif de ceux qu'en sa noire colère
Du paradis terrestre a chassés Dieu le Père,
Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
Prière
Gloire et louange à toi, Satan, dans les hauteurs
Du Ciel, où tu régnas, et dans les profondeurs
De l'Enfer, où, vaincu, tu rêves en silence!
Fais que mon âme un jour, sous l'Arbre de Science,
Près de toi se repose, à l'heure où sur ton front
Comme un Temple nouveau ses rameaux s'épandront!
— Charles Baudelaire
