I know… I already got my tickets for when they come through on Paganfest in May ;D

Eluveitie:

[size=11pt]…Of Fire, Wind & Wisdom[/size]

…the endless knot … the holy grove…
…the threshold … the place beyond…
…I enter, like a newborn child…

Embracing the eternal
Like a consuming fire
the knowledge grows
when it’s cleft
Though still patchworked
yet flooding
the creating touch
washing away the vile.

Embracing the ancient
while trees gently whisper
those intimate
longed-for words
The greet wheel
is still revolving
with untouchable sovereignty
so invulnerable.

Into the sacred grove I drown
The endless knot
draws me into
the fire of hearts, the place beyond
Then I’ll be born
then I’ll be renewed

…naked spirit … bare…
spirit

Light It Up 2.0 prod. by Ratatat ( http://pointingatthemoon.ning.com/video/light-it-up-20 )

Really nice anti-civ rap by Zack.

lyrics:
if you hating on money, man, go on light your paper up
it’s stupid funny how we fight over our wages, bro
we think we’re gunning it but really we’re just breaking stuff
you think you’re dumb, after they stuck you with the fakest fluff
i feel it too, partner, seeping through my wallet pocket
we’re in it too far to ever think we couldn’t stop it
we struggle real hard, popping off and then re-stocking
we hit a real wall, now we gonna fucking drop it.

yeah
we’re the illest cause we’re sickened by the cash stacks
feeling like we’re dealing with some acid-addled flash backs
if we backtrack, looking to the classics, issues facing us today like, shit i thought we passed that.
it’s still a class act, governed by your assets
sure, they try to mask it but you know what your caste is
so make a fist like this, stop relaxing flat
i’m saying slavery, baby, now is you grasping that?
we’ve amassed the facts so we be blasting back
attacking wackness and the plastic plaque
as slackers slide into the rhyme slanging, time-changing education
i’m naming mind-states needing heavy elevation
yeah we’re instigating definite investigation
data analyzed. what’s the verdict?
fuck civilization.
ok. learn the mission - smoke the message up and pass it-
burn your currency, too - now where the crash at? (right here!)

light it up twice, brother, does you see the stakes is up?
its too frightening, trust i couldn’t make this up
yeah we might die trying bringing justice, saving us
but if we fight to win it, first we must be waking up
that why i’m shouting loud, blazing like a fading rocket,
raising up amazing love, knocking hate, i know it’s shocking
unlocking major topics, claiming that i heard the call -
i’m just disgusted by the stuff. i’m tryna burn it all.

Dirty Laundry by Don Henley

I make my living off the Evening News
Just give me something–something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don’t have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em when they’re down
Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em when they’re down
Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em when they’re down
Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em all around

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who
comes on at five
She can tell you 'bout the plane crash with a gleam
in her eye
It’s interesting when people die–
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation?
Is the head dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom got a
running bet
Get the widow on the set!
We need dirty laundry

You don’t really need to find out what’s going on
You don’t really want to know just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em when they’re down
Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em when they’re down

Kick 'em when they’re up
Kick 'em when they’re down
Kick 'em when they’re stiff
Kick 'em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do “The Innuendo”
We can dance and sing
When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry!

Nevermore - A Future Uncertain

To be green in the beautiful hour of envy so divine
To be pure, to let chance form your infinite design
Let the seed awakening begin again
I hate the way you judge me
I hate that you’re above me
Can’t humanity reach a certain point of understanding?

Why do we live this way?
Why do we have to say the things that subvert the minds of youth?
Why is the world unborn as crashing seas still form?
The vision of the future is of blood

As we face the bleak horizon under crushing skies
The truth belying a future uncertain and dark
We are but one small race, all wear a human face
Yet our image is imperfect and flawed

To set your mind free, you must first just listen
Don’t waste your life on worthless hate and contradiction

Reaction in the earth and sky is coming at fast pace
The end to this winding road, extinction of our race
If we all are to survive, there must come great change
I foresee the future, I see the coming plague

Why do we live this way?
Why do we have to say the things that subvert the minds of youth?

To set your mind free, you must first just listen
Don’t waste your life on worthless hate and contradiction


Nevermore - Born

Religion changed the face of man, thou shalt not kill, we all are gone
The seed of ignorance is born thou shalt not think, thou shalt conform

The pigs order us to follow orders and obey
The flies drink the decaying nectar of their tortured effigy

Cling to wasted beliefs and visions and bathe in apathy again
No solution, the retribution of spiritual sickness begins

The legacy of suffering is through, the guilt we bear shall not tear us in two

Born
we are the same, within the silence, indifference be Thy name
Torn
we walk alone, we sleep in silent shades, the grandeur fades, the meaning never known

If nothing in the world can change our children will inherit nothing

Born
we are the same, within the silence, indifference be Thy name
Torn
we walk alone, we sleep in silent shades ,the grandeur fades, the meaning never known

The pigs call for pure submission and fall into the fray
The lonely hunter beats his shallow drum, the soundtrack of world disarray

Cling to wasted beliefs and visions and bathe in apathy again
No solution, the retribution of spiritual sickness begins

Born
we are the same, within the silence, indifference be Thy name
Torn
we walk alone, we sleep in silent shades, the grandeur fades, the meaning never known

If nothing in the world can change our children will inherit… nothing.


Nevermore - Medicated Nation

Slithering slow and serpentine, coiled around your spine
My willing victim so sublime, one taste and you are mine

Did you remember to feed me while I was broken and bleeding?

Preaching words obsidian on the wings of shattered man
The sightless wait oblivious to the scourge that stains their hands
All you feel and all you do, the medication controls you

Did you remember to feed me while I was broken and bleeding?

Now slap your vein
I’m the power of pain and pleasure symbiotic, I am, I am
In a medicated nation of blind neurotics, I am, I am
Psychotic pain baptized in pure narcotics, I am, I am

Did you remember to feed me while I was broken and bleeding?

Trapped in dark seductive miracles, defied addictive rituals
All you feel and all you do, the medication controls you

Did you remember to feed me while I was broken and bleeding?

Now slap your vein
I’m the power of pain and pleasure symbiotic, I am, I am
In a medicated nation of blind neurotics, I am, I am
Psychotic pain baptized in pure narcotics, I am, I am

All you feel and all you do, the medication controls you

And after all that, listen to the faeries calling you back into dreamtime… In old Norse! This song is so darn etheral and beautiful!

Kom til mín
Heyrðu sál mína kalla
Stend i skuggunum ok bíð
Eftir þér

Komþú, taktu mik með
Rikið mitt bíðir
Ek þrái þinn líkama
Augu þín brosa - hendumar skelfa - komþu!

Komþu maður, komþu til mín
Allt mitt getur orðið þitt
Komþu madur, komþu til mín
Ek em allt sem þu villt fá

Kastaþu frá þér lífi þínu,
þinn sársauki ok veikleiki
Leyfþu mér að sýna þér hvat gleði er
Yfir Gjoll við vöndrum

Ekki berjast i mófi mér -
Ek véit þu vilt mik
það er ákveðíð, þínn örlög em ék
Komþu, komþu med til Helheims

Komþu maður, komþu til mín
Allt mitt getur orðið þitt
Komþu maður, komþu til mín
Ek em allt sem þu villt fá

Translation:

Come to me
Hear my soul call
I stand in the shadows and wait
After you

Come, take me with
My kingdom awaits
I desire your body
Your eyes smile - hands shake - Come!

Come man, come to me
All that is mine can become yours
Come man, come to me
I am all that you want to get

Throw away your life
Your pain and weakness
Let me show you what joy is
Over Gjoll we wander (Gjoll is a river in norse mythology, like Styx)

Don’t fight against me
I know you want me
It is clear, I am your fate
Come, come with me to Helheim

Come man, come to me
All that is mine can become yours
Come man, come to me
I am all that you want to get

Great song, omg i’ve listened 42529 times now. :smiley:

Here’s an offering from me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvBFdEiZwFw&feature=channel_page It describes a boy as he tries to tame and mount a wild horse. The last verse, after the two characters have wrecked both farms and fences in their ‘‘getting close time’’, makes my day:

Ja, dei stend og ser kvarandre (yes, they’re standing and staring each other)
i dei heite augo inn. (into their glowing/hot/angry eyes)
BÃ¥e kjenner at den andre (both feel that the other)
er som hin i hug og sinn. (is like the other in desires and mind)

Can’t seem to find a translation. :-\

The message comes through though:-)

I’m really getting into folkmusic now!

Wolves In The Throne Room - Cleansing

Behold all that you now know… evil, evil

Let’s to the darkest place we know
Outside of the rider’s domain
To the heart of the wood
To the hidden places
To the clearing in the forest enchanted

Yes, to the darkest place that we know
Outside of the rider’s domain
To the heart of the wood
To the hidden places beyond the briar thickets

The dance must begin as dusk gathers around

Our skin drum and rattle
Know the tune
Jaw bone driven through
The skull of a great foe
Bested with wooden spear
The tip hardened in fire

Bathe in the clear cold stream
Fresh water from the unsullied endless spring that flows from the mountain
We will sing the most ancient song
Spark the fire upon dry tinder

The dance must begin as dusk gathers around

Our skin drum and rattle
Know the tune
Jaw bone driven through
The skull of a great foe
Bested with wooden spear
The tip hardened in fire

oh my fucking sh*t!

Som Blomen upp utor Marki tyte, (like the flowering on the fields)
Som Eple fram utpaa Kvisten skyte, (like the aple grows on the branch)
Er Folkesongen for Mann og Møy, (the folk song is for man and woman)
Men Folkevetter, naar den mun døy. (but the spirits,i don’t get this part)

So lat daa Tonen fraa Hjarta strøyme! (So let the sounds flow from your heart)
Og lat oss kvea og lat oss drøyme! (and let us sing and let us dream)
Her er so mykje, som dreg oss ne! (here is so much that hampers us)
Dæ svarte rømer so snegt me kve. (black spirits just run off with our cattle)

Men kom mæ Visur av Heimeslage, (but bring the homely kind of songs)
Og lat oss kvea paa gamle Lage! (and let us sing in the old ways)
Og lat oss kvea foruta Bok! (and let us sing without a book)
Den Notesongen han er so klok! (that sheet-music-song thinks it’s so wise)

Aplogize for my bad translation…I just want to sing this out so it resounds loudly in the mountains!

Månegarm - Vedergällningens tid:

Lyrics are in the video, with english translation in the sidebar.


#71

ridiculously awesome Odineeus! thanks so much for sharing!!! Take that, sheet-music-song, thinking so much of yourself! haha.


#72

Glad you like it. :smiley: That was my favorite part too. Gave me a big, big grin.

a correction to my ‘‘Dæ svarte rømer so snegt me kve. (black spirits just run off with our cattle)’’ should be ‘‘the blackness/sadness quickly vanishes when there’s song’’ yeah, i don’t know this dialect too well so that’s why i was sorta confused. :stuck_out_tongue:


#73

aw, I kinda liked your first translation. :slight_smile:

DYSTOPIA - number one hypocrite

this has been built for you and me
manical annihilation machine
using fear to keep you in control
''everyone else is the terrorist"
thats what you’ve been sold

and do you buy it?
yes you fucking do
you buy everything in sight
you eat whatever they feed you
you buy a piece of poisoned happiness
and suckle the system’s boob
your freedoms nothing more than a lie
and america is killing you

seem like we aid in every war
and we are friends with whom we abhor
always at the expense of the poor
if it were the rich
there would be no more war

rape and conquest feed your kids
gets you “things”. things you equate with freedom
if you want an SUV , we’ll have to kill some children
and you dont fucking care
as long as you’re not impaired
giving money to the system
to enlist the poor and kill them
it’s the american way
and you’re a fucking slave
and the simple fact is this:
you’re the fucking terrorist

and i was trained just like you
dumbed down through church and school
in the end it’s just my luck
im a product of where my parents fucked

im american because my parents fucked
thank you mom and dad

Also, some of the songs off Écailles De Lune by Alcest express a mystical and transcendent understanding of nature.
