Where Dead Angels Lie
Dissection Lyrics


music: J. Nödtveidt
lyrics: J. Nödtveidt

In the dawn an angel was dancing surrounded by aura of light
But in the shadows something was watching and with patience awaiting the night
Angel whispers: "Mournful night, attractive night, your dark beauty obsesses me"
An angel bewitched by the shadows
Seduced by the whispering lies

Chorus:
A spell was cast and the sky turned red
The angel´s heart froze to ice
The blackness that falls is coming to stay
Under the snow lies angels so cold

Dusk has passed and a cold morning breeze is sweeping all over the plain
On the ground lies an angel with skin so pale
On her face an images of pain
Snow is now falling to the frozen ground
The angel is covered by white
Frost is spreading across the plain to welcome the eternal night

The dress is white with crystals of ice and frozen roses so red
Roses of blood from an innocent soul
On the plain lies an angel dead

Chorus:
A Spell was cast and the sky turned red
The angel's heart froze to ice
In the gloomy sky black clouds where gathering
The silence was broken by cries
A spell was cast and the sky turned red and the angel's heart froze to ice
In the gloomy sky - The silence where dead angels lie

Touch the snow... Caress the lifeless sculptures
Die!!!

Chorus:
The blackness that falls is coming to stay
Under the snow lie angels so cold
Yet with each crystal of frost that is falling another story is told
A spell was cast and the sky turned red
The angel's heart froze to ice
In the gloomy sky - The silence where dead angels lie

In the dawn an angel was dancing
Surrounded by an aura of light
But in the shadows something was watching
And with patience awaiting the night
Angel whispers: "mournful night, attractive night
Your dark beauty obsesses me"
An angel bewitched by the shadows
Seduced by the whispering lies

A spell was cast an the sky turned red
The angel's heart froze to ice
The blackness that falls is coming to stay
Under the snow lies angels so cold

Dusk has passed and a cold morning breeze
Is sweeping all over the plain
On the ground lies an angel with skin so pale
On her face an image of pain
Snow is now falling to the frozen ground
The angel is covered by white
Frost is spreading across the plain
To welcome the eternal night

The dress is white with crystals of ice
And frozen roses so red
Roses of blood from an innocent soul
On the plain lies an angel dead

A spell was cast an the sky turned red
The angel's heart froze to ice
In the gloomy sky black clouds were gathering
The silence was broken by cries
A spell was cast an the sky turned red
The angel's heart froze to ice
In the gloomy sky - the silence where dead angels lie

Touch the snow... caress the lifeless sculptures
Die!

The blackness that falls is coming to stay
Under the snow lies angels so cold
Yet with each crystal of frost that is falling
Another story is told
A spell was cast an the sky turned red
The angel's heart froze to ice
In the gloomy sky - the silence where dead angels lie

One of the best black metal songs ever written. One of the best songs ever written in any genre really. At least in my opinion

Gunnar Thiessen

For the feels, yes. But musically, it’s rather simple and safe. I like it when Jon goes more ambitious. To me Nights Blood is the best song in the history of the universe. Can’t listen to it without tearing up

malfeitor

Yes yes yes. I have been listening to this song over and over lately haha. It is perfection

Diaboli Virtus En

Absolutely top 5 in BM history

Sam M

Agreed

прекрасным музыкантом он был, и решение уйти-его решение, осуждать нельзя, будем помнить!

hnorrstrom

I don't know many people that can sing as clearly with BM vocals as Jon did. It's so easy to follow with lyrics even from this live recording. That is something hardly any extreme metal band manages.

Min

He was a Genius! Still one of the greatest Songs in music History!
