(I Mourn that the Night Passes Us by)
(Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson, August 1998, edited July 1999)

Oh angel o' my winter;
Grieveth for the pain o' sadness.
A gothic embrace restores my love
God took away...
Ye romance o' forgotten times...
In eras without the sun.
An ocean o' tears I see...
A nightfall o' dreams caresses me.

Thou wert, thou art, thou shalt fore'er be...
Ye nightshade o' thy sorrow,
Stretching out for it's romantic rose in twilights beauty.
In love with ye thousands o' nights...
But weeping in silence... in ebony... for melancholyâ?¦ forever!

Jesus Christ walks the Earthâ?¦
A pitiful shade of Godâ?¦
A cruel conspiracy for the sake of slavery,
And He drags 'em down to the plague of humanity.

I've killed my holinessâ?¦
Killed my emptiness!
I'm fallen from Godâ?¦
Fallen from guilt!

I've abandoned the light,
The light that blinded so long!
Free from submission,
But still under His spell.
We're in painâ?¦ painâ?¦ pain!
Sorrow turns to anguishâ?¦
And I scream with hate at the tyrant above!

Hosanna de Profundis!
Dethrone the tyrantâ?¦
Take his throne, take the throne!

Gothic moonâ?¦ ablazeth the eventide so sonorous,
Ye solemn of a lovelorn gard'n o' crimson souls.
All true beauty is sad...
But lost within the clenched hands of God.

I mourn that the night passes us byâ?¦
Let there be an eternal nightâ?¦ eternal night!
I mourn that the night passes us by!
Let there be an eternal nightâ?¦ eternal night!

..I shall call upon the dragon...!
