Lyrics for the album Epicus doomicus metallicus by Candlemass

1. Solitude


I'm sitting here alone in darkness, waiting to be free,
Lonely and forlorn I am crying
I long for my time to come, death means just life
Please let me die in solitude

Hate is my only friend, pain is my father
Torment is delight to me
Death is my sanctuary, I seek it with pleasure
Please let me die in solitude

Receive my sacrifice, my lifeblood is exhausted!
No one gave love and understanding
Hear these words, vilifiers and pretenders
Please let me die in solitude

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
And dust to...
Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust

Sitting here alone in darkness, waiting to be free,
Lonely and forlorn I am crying
I long for my time to come, death means just life
Please let me die in solitude

Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
And dust to .... earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
And dust to .... earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
And dust to .... earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust

And please let me die in solitude ...


2. Demon's Gate


"Beyond all nightmares I met my fate
An ancient passage surrounded by hate
Scared I was with my hand on my cross
I went into the demon's gate"

Across the Styx among the mists of Hades
A gate of stones marks the path
To soul's damnation and hell's wrath

Ancient evil is awaiting there, at the doorstep to hell
Within its darkness the demons dwell

From the dark age the passage hail,
Created by witchcraft and hate
Where every sinner will meet his fate
The place is cursed by the hands of doom
Unholy powers in reign
The devil's paradise of pain

Approach!
The Eibon opens for you
The choirs of damnation, call you on through
The twilight possesses, the heart of your soul
The starlight is fading to black,
Into the demon's gate


3. Crystal Ball


Black heart, your soul is mine (...mine, mine)
Gaze into and the secrets you'll find (...find, find)
Just read the signs

Gaze into the crystal, see what it tells
It can bring you all fortune, do you so well
Visions and dreams you can see in the Crystal ball

I saw the rainbows end
I am raptured, I cannot pretend
I've found Atlantis
The talisman of Seth

Gaze into the crystal, see what it tells
It can bring you all fortune, do you so well
Visions and dreams you can see in the Crystal ball

The Crystal ball
In the Crystal ball

I've seen it all, gazed into the crystal ball
Tell me more, I want to know
Please hear my call

Gaze into the crystal, see what it tells
It can bring you all fortune, do you so well
Visions and dreams you can see in the Crystal ball

The Crystal ball
The Crystal ball

... Crystal ball


4. Black Stone Wielder


The rain kept on falling and darkened the sky
The dawn was to come with the sunrise
Revealing the shadows that passed through the mist
The torchlight was flickering,
The storm was chasing them on

A procession of dark coats followed the star
Foretold to come since ages
In silence they walked on crossing the lands
On their way to Bethlehem,
To break the chains of the spell

Stone, they worshipped the stone
In generation from father to son
A star, a star is to come
To light them way to the one who is born

The leader he knelt there to greet the newborn
Holding his pendant before him
Teardrops were falling from his eyes as he said:
"Take this stone and use it well, don't do as I did long ago"

Into the sundown he returned
The moon was rising and heaven burned
Like shadows disappeared the men
And the black stone wielders were never seen again

Stone, they wielded the stone
In generation from father to son
A star, a star is to come
And light them the way to the one who is born

They came across the western sea
With powers greater than needed
The wizards commanded the lightning
Every creature knelt in for their will
But they wielded the black stone with evil
And their evil was cast back on them
Damned to praise god forever
'til his son was born to deliver

Stone, they wielded the stone
In generation from father to son
A star, a star is to come
And light them the way to the one who is born


5. Under The Oak


...Deep was my anguish and for these words
They froze my blood and changed my soul
The master has spoken the truth, not any lies
The Devil gives and evil takes
The thing in life that man forsakes
A throne in hell, a price or a sacrifice?

Still the wind was blowing soft
And gentle here under the oak
Which gave me shelter and rest in for my trial
I'm not strong, weak is my mind
A new beginning, where to find?
I'm the last one on earth, please forgive us our crime

It was a time, when love was mine
Now it's time to sacrifice

My heart, bleeding for my race
The traces of mankind sweeped out by the hand of our Lord
I cried for the ones I have lost
Midnight in paradise, grief, away goes my hope

I cried for the ones I lost

Hear my prayers, climbing on the clouds above
Silent cry, reach the inner halls of truth
Give me a sign!
Sign!

A crimson sky, bless my eyes
Up goes the sun, my time has come


6. A Sorcerer's Pledge


[Part I]

Time...
Time stands still in these ancient halls
Only the castle itself can tell what it keeps
Dark are the secrets between these walls
Hidden in shadows of death, while the sorcerer sleeps

Where is the morning, where is the sun
Thousand years of midnight, the sunrise is gone

An old man marked by a life so long is
Sleeping so sweet while his magic is growing so strong
Waiting still for new times to come
A thousands years to see if he has won

Where is the morning, where is the sun
A thousand years of midnight, the sunrise is gone

What has he done?
Why is he sleeping so long?
He wants to live for evermore
Soon is he young
n will he open his eyes?
When he is strong enough to rule

Back in the time goes the legend
of a sorcerer so old
He drank the blood of the virgin to be reborn
"Soon a tyrant will conquer"
So spoke the wise
Of the day when the sorcerer will rise
...rise

Blood is his wine
The sorcerer is cheating time
And he'll be stronger than before
Cursed be the sun
The women will weep for his fun
In the name of his magic so strong

Back in the time goes the legend
Of a sorcerer so old
He drank the blood of a virgin to be reborn
"Soon a tyrant will conquer"
So spoke the wise
Of the day when the sorcerer will rise
... Rise

[Part II]

A thousand years have gone
Armageddon hasn't come
Only the cry of a child echoes in the dark
Backward goes time
As the stars are passing by
And nothing remains of this foolish man except his fate
