Enslaved – In Times Lyrics (2015)

1. Thurisaz Dreaming

Circling High
Above the earth
Drew a letter
Thought a spear
Forgot the yearnings
And left myself
Broken through the silky skin
That separates the times
Two eyes closed
Night is all around

I’ve taken on another form
Learning once again to speak
Growing forth a shadow heart
No less beautiful
I hammer not for building
But for Breaking the glass
For bending the passing of days
To the deeper will

In the mind-hive
I can hear you dream
In the mind-hive
It’s so quiet up here
Fractals gone
I can see your face
Fractals gone
No need to move

In the mind-hive
I can hear you dream
In the mind-hive
I’ts so quiet up here

Then I’ll see but the one

Circling high
Above the earth
Drew a letter
Thought a spear
Forgot the yearnings
And left myself
Broken through the silky skin
That separate the times

Then I’ll see but the one

Circling High
Above the earth
Drew a letter
Thought a spear
Two eyes closed
Night is all around

2. Building with Fire

Facing fear, facing birth
The emptiness, the void, the dreams
Unfold
Burning shrouds, the air is cold
The memories of time and space
Unknown
Sleeping tight in rising flames
A mind evokes, the self returns
Unhurt
Seeing life, through the clouds
Abandoning the womb, a seed
Untouched

Like a sea of hope
Assembling forces of old
By the betrayer’s funeral pyre
Building with fire!
Like a field with endless harvest
The first breath we take
Uruz awakes, reaching higher
Building with fire!

Like a hammer of thoughts
Our minds reborn
What the inner I desire
Building with fire!

Come and feel the silence
Come and watch the sun
Come and bid farewell
Tales will be told
Tales will be ignored
Tales will once again destroy

Facing fear, facing birth
The emptiness, the void, the dreams
Unfold
Burning shrouds, the air is cold
The memories of time and space
Unknown
Sleeping tight in rising flames
A mind evokes, the self returns
Unhurt

A picture from a dream forms a destiny
The circle of life bound to be broken

The gods cannot elude the pain
A path in time built with fire

Facing fear, facing birth
The emptiness, the void, the dreams
Unfold
Burning shrouds, the air is cold
The memories of time and space
Unknown
Sleeping tight in rising flames
A mind evokes, the self returns
Unhurt
Seeing life, through the clouds
Abandoning the womb, a seed
Untouched

3. One Thousand Years of Rain

The age of the wolf is the age of the sword

Son of the earth, father of despair, lurking
And ever searching to end his thirst
Strength reborn in the streams of cold blood
Son of the earth, father of rage, hiding beneath
And ever smiling when the seed is planted
Hate paving the streets of gold

Long gone is the golden grace
Feeble beats from a frozen heart
Now glowing eyes in the pale face
The blind man cries in vain
Long gone is the light of day
Searching the borders of sanity
The children of tomorrow they slay
Their spirits entombed in rotten soil

Son of the earth, father of anxiety, amongst us
And ever telling the tales of the righteous
Licking drops of sorrow from the lake of tears
Son of the earth, father of treason, envy the beauty
And ever embracing the desperation
Hiding from the moonbeams, afraid to face the wrath
Wandering down the icy path
The sun is dying
The mother is crying
No sadness found in the jester’s face
The sun is dying
The mother is crying

Long gone is the golden grace
Feeble beats from a frozen heart
Now glowing eyes in the pale face
The blind man cries in vain
Long gone is the light of day
Searching the borders of sanity
The children of tomorrow they slay
Their spirits entombed in rotten soil

The winter is closing in
Like the grip of a war within
Absence of light turning flesh to stone
A cosmic war and you stand alone

Brother killing brother
Tales of honor becoming myth
History written with axes and blood
The wolf is howling at the gate

Bræðr munu berjask
(Ok at) bönum verðask,
Munu systrungar
Sifjum spilla
Leika Míms synir
(En) mjötuðr kyndisk
At inu galla Gjallarhorni

Skelfr Yggdrasils
Askr standandi
Ymr it aldna tré
Hræðask allir
(Á helvegum)
(Áðr Surtar þann
Sefi of gleypir

Wandering down the icy path
The sun is dying
Silent tears won’t bring him back
No sadness found in the jester’s face
The mother is crying
Breach the walls, relieve the pain, or be left in one thousand years of rain

4. Nauthir Bleeding

I kept the sounds to myself
And then I saw how
I needed, how I’d drifted
It was all in the past

I survived
The dreadful hours
I dug the grave
I climbed back out
Waited oh so long
Dreamt of us

Alone walking
Through the cemeteries
Of our buried memories
Held the stillborn heir
To naught and less
Sung her to sleep
While she gnawed at the flesh

And we’re in the now
Bleak shadows in time
Echoes from the future
Frozen in the past

A funeral of ghosts

A funeral of ghosts
Dread
Frenzy
With nothing to keep us together
Gateway
Darkness
Except the need to part ways
Bindrune
Clarity
At the crooked cross at dusk
Internalize
Flight

Days – Fight – Enlighten
Harvesting – Building – Inside

I kept the sounds to myself
And then I saw how
I needed, how I’d drifted
It was all in the past
(And we’re all in the now)

Gnawing and scratching
At the roots of the self
Paving the road to ruin
Blowing out the candle
The fire within
Poisoning the lifeblood

Gnawing and scratching
At the roots of the self

5. In Times

Dagaz!

There is no end
Around and further
Into the distance
In times found
A secret key

The feather light astral beauty
Outside the realm of thoughts
Within the reach of certain dreams
Spun from golden leaves of black holes
And ancient thread
Across the dimensional dome
Above the lone runner
A burst of all things bright
All things bright and beautiful
No more longing

In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times
In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times
In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times
In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times

The giants of the night side wade
Silently through the sea
Crossing through a singular point
Opened by runic
Penetration
Standing by the sea, I wonder
Alas, my aching heart
We have come to dissolve the shackles
So that we might live and breathe
In all our times

In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times
In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times
In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times
In the flickering of the present
Travel across the ocean of times

Become the other as yourself

All things made
Possible
All times made
Achievable

Enter as you leave it all behind
Exit through the heart
See the endless suns burning
The frost that never thaws

Rites of stillness
In
Praise transition
Times
Rites of stillness
In
Praise transition
Times

Awoken from lust less slumber
Ice from the eyes
Fire from the mind
Having found direction

In
Side the out
Side
Inside times
In
Side the out
Side
Inside times
In
Side the out
Side
Inside times
In
Side the out
Side
Inside times

Dagaz!

6. Daylight

The mind and the flesh
The atom space
The deity and mankind
The distant nebulae
The aeons of death and glory
All within the infant’s first breath

Onwards to life
Onwards to death
Onwards to madness
Onwards to sense

The chalice of daylight
The coiling sword
The blood of infinity
The solar eclipse
The instigation of doom
All united in timelessness

Onwards to create
Onwards to erase
Onwards to illuminate
Onwards to the bridge

Every morning as the first
Dawning marks the new battle
Each nightfall as the last
The wounds can heal of mark the end
All times in a single heartbeat
In circular disintegration

In between night and day
Lies the shrine of secrets
In between mind and chaos
Dwells the non-being

The mind and the flesh
The atom space
The deity and mankind
The solar eclipse
The instigation of doom
All united in timelessness

Onwards to life
Onwards to death
Onwards to madness
Onwards to sense
