Kapitel I: I Troldskog Faren Vild
Ulver Lyrics

(plates 25-27)
1. The eternal female groan'd! It was heard all over the earth.
2. Albion's coast is sick silent; the American meadows faint!
3. Shadows of prophecy shiver along by the lakes and the rivers
And mutter across the ocean: France, rend down thy dungeon;
4. Golden Spain burst the barriers of old Rome;
5. Cast thy keys, O Rome, into the deep falling, even to eternity down falling,
6. And weep [and bow thy reverend locks.]
7. In her trembling hands she took the new born terror, howling;
8. On those infinite mountains of light, now barr'd out by the Atlantic sea,
The new born fire stood before the starry king!
9. Flag'd with grey brow'd snows and thunderous visages, the jealous wings wav'd over the deep.
10. The speary hand burned aloft, unbuckled was the shield;
Forth went the hand of jealousy among the flaming hair,
And hurl'd the new born wonder thro' the starry night.
11. The fire, the fire is falling!
12. Look up! Look up! O citizen of London, enlarge thy countenance:
O Jew. Leave counting gold! Return to thy oil and wine. O African!
Black African! (Go, winged thought, widen his forehead)
13. The fiery limbs, the flaming hair, shot like the sinking sun into the western sea.
14. Wak'd from his eternal sleep, the hoary element roaring fled away;
15. Down rush'd, beating his wings in vain, the jealous king; his grey brow'd councellors,
Thunderous warriors, curl'd veterans, among helms, and shields,
And chariots, horses, elephants: banners, castles, slings, and rocks.
16. Falling, rushing, ruining! Buried in the ruins, on Urthona's dens;
17. All night beneath the ruins, then, their sullen flames faded,
Emerge round the gloomy king.
18. With thunder and fire, leading his starry hosts thro' th

They awaited the girl/maid's return [home]
[But] she was lost in the dark forest
The snow had fallen like a blanket as far as the eye could see

On the road home
Her only friend..
If she only could
Follow the road of the stars

But she was lost
Among the dark trees
The Forest's dark arms embraced it self over the unknown guest
Reminded her of her biggest fright
That the mountain king thirsts for Christian blood

Those underground:
"Somone closes silently
A sorrowful girl
She is sitting there with folded hands
She is sending a prayer to the heavenly realm"

Over her head
It's dripping from a branch
Drop, by drop like the blood
[Of the body] from Jesus christ

The girl:
Aa, alone in a scary forest
I feel that tonight
Tonight no one thinks of me

Esperaban el regreso de la niña/niña.
Pero estaba perdida en el bosque oscuro
La nieve había caído como una manta hasta donde alcanzaba la vista.

En el camino a casa
Su única amiga..
Si tan sólo pudiera
Sigue el camino de las estrellas

Pero estaba perdida
Entre los árboles oscuros
Los brazos oscuros del Bosque se abrazaron a sí mismos sobre el huésped desconocido
Le recordó su mayor susto
Que el rey de la montaña tiene sed de sangre cristiana

Los que están bajo tierra:
"Alguien cierra en silencio
Una chica afligida
Ella está sentada ahí con las manos cruzadas
Ella está enviando una oración al reino celestial"

Sobre su cabeza
Está goteando de una rama.
Gota a gota como la sangre
[Del cuerpo] de Jesucristo

La chica:
Aa, solo en un bosque aterrador
Siento que esta noche
Esta noche nadie piensa en mí.

this song single handedly created agalloch and alcest two of my favorite bands,
it doesn't get much better than beautiful acoustic guitars with melodic black metal riffs  and double bass in my opinion. the vocals fit perfectly too i would like it either way with all screaming or just cleans or even a mix of both

Zachary P
