The Promise
Krypteria Lyrics


He said: Just sign your name across the dotted line and take advantage of the goods I have to offer
It won't cost you much just a single drop of blood and I'll hand you the things you have long been wishing for
It's an easy way to choose, what do you have to lose?

Will I fall? Opulentiam aeternam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand tall? Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem
Will I fall? Venustatem infinitam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand or fall? Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem

Should I sign and end this lifelong string of broken dreams of failure, shattered hopes, of trials and tribulations?
It won't cost a thing all the world will hear me sing and I'd have all the riches, the fame and everything
It's an easy way to choose, what do I have to lose?

Will I fall? Opulentiam aeternam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand tall? Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem
Will I fall? Venustatem infinitam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand or fall? Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem

Should I sign and blindly dance along the piper's tune or should I rather trust my inner voice to guide me?
I don't own a lot but I still got one last shot so do I need to believe in a promise and its seed?
Am I willing to choose when it's myself I could lose?

Will I fall? Opulentiam aeternam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand tall? Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem
Will I fall ? Venustatem infinitam gloriamque te promitto
Will I stand or fall? Quidquid agis prudenter agas et respice finem

FINALLYYY I found this song, it was buried in the depths of my brain and I could not figure out what the band was. This was one of my favorite songs when I was a teenager 😂😭❤️ yesssss

I love how she's a singer for a metal band who doesn't insist on trying to sound as powerful as possible. She has a light, airy voice that suits the songs well, and it compliments the powerful latin vocals perfectly. And this song is just amazing beyond all doubts. The chorus alone makes this song epic.

Rough translation of the latin:

I promise thee the wealth and the eternal glory.
Whatever you do, do it wisely, and prepare for the end.
Everlasting beauty and the glory I promise thee.
Whatever you do, do it wisely, and prepare for the end.

Latin sounds really immersive! It's bit a shame and sad that we're losing this language, it's historic and heaps of books are/were wrote in Latin. I wish we all could understand a lot of languages like natives but it's not that easy these days... And some people just don't like the idea though.

My favourite Krypteria song! Just so beautiful...

Frey

the latin part in the chorus is amazing :) and the way they lead into the song; first with Piano then with the Metal, truely amazing, reminds me of nightwish :)

Krypteria is such a great group, I really hope they get more recognition. Maybe something will happen when their new album is out, it's gonna be kickass after reading what they've said about it, so I'm def excited!!
