Nubibus Atris
sToa Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Si mare volvens
turbidus Auster
misceat aestum,
vitrea dudum
parque serenis
unda diebus
mox resoluto
sordida caeno
visibus obstat.

Nubibus atris
condita nullum
fundere possunt
sidera lumen.


Overall Meaning

The song "Nubibus Atris" by sToa is a beautiful and haunting piece that speaks to the turbulent emotions that can often come with the onset of darkness and uncertainty. The first stanza speaks of the ocean whipped up by the tumultuous southern winds, churning and frothy. What was once a peaceful and calm sea, reflective of the serene days past, is now covered in murky sediment, obscuring vision and preventing peaceful reflection. The second stanza alludes to the darkness represented by the black clouds, covering the sky and obscuring the light of the stars.
