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

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!
