  • Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean

    Nightwish

    Genre:

    Symphonic Heavy
    1998

    A snowy owl above the haunted waters
    Poet of ancient gods
    Cries to tell the neverending story
    Prophecy of becoming floods

    An aura of mystery surrounds her
    The lady in brightest white
    Soon the incarnate shall be born
    The Creator of the Night

    Deep dark is His Majesty’s kingdom
    A portent of tomorrow’s world
    There shall the liquid give Him power
    The red-eyed unborn lord

    Fatal embrace of the bloodred waters
    The cradle of infinite gloom
    The spell to master this Earth
    Carven on an infant’s tomb

    “I will die for the love of the mermaid
    Her seduction beauty and scorn
    Welcome to the end of your life
    – Hail the Oceanborn!”

    “Disgraced is my virginity
    Death has woven my wedding dress
    Oh Great Blue breathe the morning dew
    For you are the cradle of the image of god”

    “Brave now long rest is sweet
    With me here in the deep”

    “I prayed for pleasure wished for love
    Prayed for your – ”

    “Never pray for me!”

    “Who the hell are you for me
    But a mortal dream to see?”

    “This apathetic life must drown
    Forever just for me”

    “Leave me be
    Leave me be
    Leave me be…ee…eeee”

    “From cradle to coffin
    Shall my wickedness be your passion”

    We shall come to set the dolphins free
    We shall wash the darkened bloodred sea
    Our songs will echo over the mountains and seas
    The eternity will begin once again in peace
