Dagens låt 2011-02-17 (Haggard - Per Aspera Ad Astra)

Band/artist: Haggard
Låt: Per Aspera Ad Astra
Genre: Någon typ av opera/medeltida lajv-goth metal (inte så illa som det låter)
Album: Eppur Si Muove
Årtal: 2004 (Drakkar)
Lyrik:

(Adesso sono qui…)
An old dungeon hidden from all the light
Thirteen candles enlighten the dark
Shadows are playing their games on the wall
And a shimmering glow fills the arch

Now, as night steps as side, and a new dawn will break
Silently a new age of science awakes

Old theory that has been wrong
Power of the universe
Will take me to the place where I belong

Through the clauds of lies and fear
In silent moments it comes near:

In my deepest hour of darkness
They will shine…
(feel my scorn)
endlessly…
(The sword that killed the unicorn)
Splenderanno … per aspera ad astra

His theories and knowledge
Mean danger in these times
And those accused of heresy
Will not longer be alive
Hide, hide your secrets well
For in your darkest hour you should dwell

(Adesso sono qui…)
An old table covered with parchments and rolls
The great one has children of four
Callisto, Europa, Ganymed e Io
The bright universe to adore

Old theory that has been wrong
Power of the universe
Will take me to the place where I belong

Through the clauds of lies and fear
In silent moments it comes near:

In my deepest hour of darkness
They will shine…
(feel my scorn)
endlessly…
(The sword that killed the unicorn)
Splenderanno … per aspera ad astra
