Moonspell Rapaces

Eternal life runs so slow

While you play your lamentation show

Eternal kisses are cold

Why do you think they are beautiful?

Let the candles burn,

And the stakes go through the soul.

Not all vampires suck blood!

Not all of them die for love!

Eternal life runs so very slow,

Impossible, so very wrong.

Final prayers are loud,

How do you think that yours will sound?

Not all romantic wounds,

Most of us are strong.

Not all vampires suck blood!

Not all of them die for love!

Eternal life runs so very slow,

You are the star of my lamentation show.

Eternal kisses are gold,

Yes I think they’re beautiful.

Let all candles burn,

None of us are strong.

Not all vampires suck blood!

Not all of them die for love!

Moonspell EuroticA

Let me welcome you to that special place

Where everyone is yours

Let me welcome you to that special place

And (where) you are everyone’s

(Eurotica…)

Let me welcome you to that special place

Where everyone is sane

Let me welcome you to that special place

Where you are everyone’s

(Eurotica…)

Let us spare you the grief

That to be yourself might bring

You are here to be amused maybe, confused or misused

To be a living metaphor of this modern, great swing

Just drink and eat and do not forget

To play always safe intercourse

(In this human sized and human shaped zoo)

We do not mind to progress alone

We do not mind to take it on

We do not mind to take control

We do not mind to be you

(Eurotica…)

Where I wanna be

Where I wanna live

Moonspell Handmade God

For that viper that grows inside your head

she remains there waiting to be fed

self made parasite speculating about the end

(I ask you)

Can you forgive her?

Back into the womb of this holy woman

else pregnant of an entire breed

of men afraid to create, (to) take place and to proceed

(I ask you)

Can you forgive them?

They promised me a miracle

a private god for me to hold

Can you forgive me?

They promised me a miracle

someone to really really love

Can you forgive me?

Your handmade god

is back into your womb

Is it right to indulge on an ecstasy

of creating a god that sees what I see,

looks exactly like me, rather what I (what I) wanted to be

Can you forgive me?

For that viper that grew inside my head

for having betrayed you so well

Can you forgive me?

They promised me a miracle

when all my crimes will be just one

but now is gone.

They promised me a miracle.

Back to your womb it feels so cold.

Moonspell Firewalking

Help me fall from grace

Need you to be incomplete

I am the impostor at your feet

Is it your first time

Or have you been tempted before

Downward into the pulsing life

Laying below

Try firewalking inside of me

when everything falls apart

Try firewalking inside of me

When everything falls apart

Won’t you fall from grace

I am at a wingbeat

from my retreat

Is it your first time or have you been tempted before

Downward the pulsing secret

Laying below

Try firewalking inside of me

when everything falls apart

Try firewalking inside of me

when everything else falls apart

Moonspell Funeral Bloom

Through the light and the thunder

When it’s night and day

Darkness take my hand now

Take me anywhere

I could take shelter

I could pretend

I could run against it

Wouldn’t stop

Wouldn’t stop the wind

Oh it’s time!

To pick up a rose

From the mouth of the dragon

Oh it’s time!

To bring you down from your tower

Start a chain reaction

Oh it’s time!

Time to lay her down

Ashes to ashes

Oh it’s time! Oh it’s time!

Time to cover the world in Funeral Bloom

Through the age of light

Aquarius

When it’s night and day

Follow the blind man

Through the fire

They always know their way

I could take cover

No use for protection!

I could smash your other cheek

Blood out in the wind

Oh it’s time!

Time to lay her down

Ashes to ashes

Oh it’s time! Oh it’s time!

Time to cover the world in Funeral Bloom

Oh it’s time!

Time to lay her down

Ashes to ashes

Now it’s time! Yeah it’s time!

No other colors but Funeral Bloom

We rise, we fall

Without control

We crash and burn

So damn our souls

I show you no remorse

ERGO SUM PECCATORE

For he was a good man

A supplicant

(And) disaster was his god

Now devoid of earthly lust

I command him to the skies

Where everyone is just

And everything will be fine

Where everyone is just

And everything will be fine

Now it’s time!

Time to lay her down

Ashes to ashes

Oh it’s time!

Time to cover the world in Funeral Bloom

Oh it’s time! Oh it’s time!

Time to lay her down

Ashes to ashes

Now it’s time! Yeah it’s time!

No choice of color but Funeral Bloom

We rise, we fall

Without control

We crash and burn

So damn our souls

I show you no remorse

I’m but a sinner, a liar

A man who lost his course

ERGO SUM PECCATORE

Moonspell Alma Mater

Mother Tongue speaks to Me

In the strongest way I’ve ever seen

I know that she sees in Me

Her proudest child, her purest breed

She speaks to Me in colours

That I can’t really understand

I only know that they are ours

And to those I’ll proudly bend

For I am your only child

And you my dearest mystery

From an ancient throne I defy the world

To kneel before the Power within.

For I am your only child

And you my dearest mystery

World can’t you see it?

Am I alone in my belief?

Virando costas ao mundo

Orgulhosamente sós

Glória antiga, volta a nós!

ALMA MATER!

Breaking waves announce my Bride

It is the only way the Sea could sing

Legends of Lusitanian pride

He sings the words I cannot spring

At the Moon Mountain six wolves cry

Your lost glory we’ll regain or die

For I am her only child

And she is my dearest mystery

Pagan Gods in conspiracy

For the sword of Tyranny

Mother Tongue has spoke to thee

In the strongest way they’ve ever seen

World can’t you see?

I am not alone in my belief.

ALMA MATER!

Virando costas ao Mundo

Orgulhosamente sós

Gloria Antiga, volta a nos!

ALMA MATER!

Mother Tongue has spoke to Me

In the strongest way I’ve ever seen

I know that she sees in Me

Her proudest child, her purest breed

She speaks to Me in colours

I can’t really understand

I only know that they are ours

and to those I’ll proudly bend

For I am her only child

And she is my dearest mystery

From an ancient throne I defy the world

To kneel before the powers within.

For I am her only child

And she is my dearest tragedy

World can’t you see it?

I am not alone in my belief.

Virando costas ao Mundo

Orgulhosamente sós

ALMA MATER!

Moonspell Solitary Vice

I will manipulate you

Until it becomes a vice

I will dispose of you

Until it becomes a vice

Let me exaggerate you

Distort you from inside out

love you by different rules

fuck you up to your soul

I will pretend I love you

To know what is like

Then come in my own mouth

To feel what is like

Let me desecrate you

Spit you when I’m done

Let me banalize you

Until you are adored

Open your heart

Half-devoured

All that I want

Is your strange kind of power

Open your heart

Half-devoured

All that I want

Is your strange kind of power

I will insist on you

Until you become the Truth

i will decay with you

Until you become the Ruin

Let me celebrate here

Now that nothing is left of you

Let me celebrate now

Here’s nothing left of you

Open your heart

Half-devoured

All that I want

Is your strange kind of power

Open your heart

Half-devoured

All that I want

Is your strange kind of power

I will dispose of you. I will manipulate you

I will discard of you but I will believe in you

Moonspell Abanão

Terra tremi in nomine

Terra tremi solitudine

Terra tremi miseriae

Terra tremi benevolentiae

Transformo a agua em vidro

Estilhaco a solidao

Tu que rastejas a superficie

Sabes quao terrivel e meu destino

Minha ilusao

Amor com amor se paga

Cidade armadilhada

Incerto lugar

Incerto momento

Sabes quao terrivel

E minha sina minsha ilusao

Abanao – a terra treme

Tudo esta bem mas a terra treme

Abanao tudo esta bem

Mas a terra treme sem perdao

Transformo a brisa em vento

Convoco a desolacao

Tu que nos olhas dai de cima

Sabes quao sinistra e minha sina

Minha ilusao

Abanao – a terra treme

Tudo esta bem mas a terra treme

Abanao tudo esta bem

Mas a terra treme sem perdao

Moonspell In Tremor Dei

In tremor dei

Renego à vida

Uma jura

Sacramentada

In tremor dei

P’las almas dos mortos

Uma jura

Consagrada

Roubaste-me o ar de peito aberto

A chuva que não cai

No horizonte, deslumbro o sol

Que se põe a leste

Lisboa

Em chamas

Caída, tremendo

Sem Deus

Lisboa

Em chamas

Caída, tremendo

Em chamas, Lisboa

In tremor dei

In tremor dei

Haja esperança

Quando cai uma cidade

In tremor dei

Lanterna acesa

Outro império se levanta

Um só aviso

De mar aberto

Assim Deus ordena

Procuro vingança

Nas cinzas dos mortos

Conjuro a destruição

Lisboa

Em chamas

Caída, tremendo

Sem Deus

Lisboa

Em chamas

Tremendo, caída

Em chamas, Lisboa

[English translation]

[In Fear Of God]

In fear of god

Life I deny

Sworn and

Sacramented

In fear of god

By the soul of the dead

Sworn and

Consecrated

You stole the air from my chest

You’re the rain that doesn’t fall

In the horizon, a glimpse the sun

Setting down in the east

Lisbon

On fire

Fallen, trembling

Without god

Lisbon

On fire

Trembling, fallen

On fire, Lisbon

In fear of god

In fear of god

Let there be hope

When a city falls

In fear of god

The lantern lit

An empires stands tall

One warning just

By the open sea

So orders god

I seek revenge

In the ash of the dead

I conjure destruction

Lisbon

On fire

Fallen, trembling

Without god

Lisbon

On fire

Trembling, fallen

On fire, Lisbon
