Ulver Lyrics


Science, the new aristocracy
Progress, the world is on the march
Why shouldn't it turn too?
It's the vision of numbers.
We are moving towards the Spirit.
Certainly deserted:
It's the voice of the oracle, what I say.
Understand, and not knowing how to express myself without using hidden words.
I prefer to remain silent
Science! The new nobility! Progress.
The world progresses!
Why shouldn't it turn as well?
It's the vision of numbers.
We advance towards the Spirit.
It's quite certain: it's oracular, what I say.
I know, and unaware how to express myself without pagan words, I'd rather be mute

Science, the new aristocracy
Progress, the world is on the march
Why shouldn't it turn too?
It's the vision of numbers.
We are moving towards the Spirit.
Certainly deserted: 
It's the voice of the oracle, what I say. 
Understand, and not knowing how to express myself without using hidden words.
I prefer to remain silent

Science! The new nobility! Progress.
The world progresses!
Why shouldn't it turn as well?
It's the vision of numbers. 
We advance towards the Spirit.
It's quite certain: it's oracular, what I say.
I know, and unaware how to express myself without pagan words, I'd rather be mute

The music fits the painting very well. Just imagine being in that bizarre world. Dead beings minding their own business, tending to their plants... they do not communicate nor do they acknowledge your presence, they just work on their gardens autonomously. Surreal. There's also a nice metaphor for the cycle of life and death in this painting. The beings of death are caring for plant life, when a living creature dies it feeds the soil with the necessities for plant life.

Holy shit, this could easily be part of a Silent Hill soundtrack. Even the lyrics.
Amazing.

Carla Ferreira

One my favorite Ulver songs, and I love how they can do any genre so perfectly. The Garden of Death is a great picture to accompany this with too... makes you think.

Exactly! Every release may/generally is drastically different but they are all very ULVER.

This sounds kinda grim, but the relatively casual and unchanging nature of the drum work contrasts with the ominous and ever-shifting nature of the rest of the composure interrupted in that once-in-a-while moment where the guitar riff and the soft-sung lyrics seem to embody the occasional acoustic sunbeam of one's own sense of humanity and connection with the air and trees around you.
Regardless, you keep walking, a constant in an existentially puzzling universe; does 'gnosis' itself not signify the sum of our knowledge with an emphasis on mystical insight? Regardless, the streets are long and the road always wants to talk. The percussive mess of our passage rolls on, whatever the existential questions posed by our advances.
