Virgin Black – Requiem Fortissimo Lyrics (2008)

1. The Fragile Breath

Amorous eyes, crippling word I bring
Grief vents itself more violently
The hour of parting is at hand
Hope, your warmth failed
The famished are here, forsaken
Fleeting, fading, the fragile
Fading, the fragile
It drinks deep into the soul
Drinks deep into the soul
Fleeting, fading, the fragile
It drinks deep into my soul
Drinks deep into my soul
Drink me deep

2. In Winter’s Ash

I lie with blackened chest
Tears, dense, welling in swollen eyes
Resplendent in winter´s ash
My God be upheld in our distress
My cries fill the air
Domine libera manes defunctorum
Winter envelopes
I lie with blackened chest
Tears, dense, welling in swollen eyes
Resplendent in winter´s ash
Where is my God, in the dull ear of night?
With tuneless voice, a requiem sung
Wailing and breadless, alone
On a flower strewn earth
Where is my God?
Look at me, upon my bruised head
Taste my ruin, my ashen soul
I tread alone
Winter envelopes

3. Silent

Sorrow ever awaits on joy
And has rendered me to pieces
You who must stoop to view the skies
Stoop amongst the dying
Libera eos Domine
Stoop to slake this thirst
My sorrow can no more lament
There is no arm to cling to
Stoop to slake this thirst
I silently wait, and claw my eyes
Libera eos Domine
Silent, silently
Waiting, to gorge on solitude
When will my sorrow begin to pale?
And to my head I raise these flowers
Yellowed, withered
Silent, silently
Waiting, to gorge on solitude
When will my sorrow begin to pale?

4. God In Dust

Bring me deep, oh death devour
Cover me with darkness
And paint me like death
I drown in remembrance
I am blind with weeping
And will mourn until death
Place the hand of God in dust
I am suffering, I am blind
I am made blind with weeping
And I will mourn until death
I tread alone
I am suffering, I am blind
Place the hand of God in dust
I am in the dust, but there I find You
Misery calls, in the dark night of the soul
Abandonment, carries me home
Carry me home.

5. Lacrimosa (Gather Me)

Gather me, for I am scattered
Speak comfort to me
Gather me, share my sorrow
Lacrimosa

6. Darkness

Misery calls
My blood has died
And marked my eyes with stains perpetual
Blood has died
Lifeless life cradles dust
Trembling, quantus tremos est futurus
Fading, judgement is at hand
Darkness
I drink deep into the soul
Drink deep into your soul
I am made blind with weeping
I drink deep into your soul
Drink deep into your soul
My blood has died
Blood has died
Lifeless life cradles dust
Trembling, quantus tremos est futurus
Fading, judgement is at hand
Darkness
My God, save us, O death
Sorrow ever await on joy
And has rendered me (to pieces)
Requiem, Kyrie, requiem
My God, exhort, to not merely draw air.
But breath the skies.

7. Forever
