Borknagar - Ad Noctum Lyrics




Swept in a distant dream, I am bound
As a cunning waver trapped in it's line
Facing the cold, stuck in the mould
The magma here under makes fire seems cold

And I've been down below
And I've been high above

From flaring field of fiery formations
The sub dimensions aflame
Like a havoc in black when the force turns back
The surface tears open spills blood from it's cracks

The cause of the essence sharpen the lines of dimensions

I am raised by the fields, by the highlands
The minded mountains of old
Where the river starts roaring I roam
Where the wind comes moaning I wander alone
AD NOCTUM

The course of the essence sharpen the lines
Of the dimensions I am trembling between
The inner cause of the utter cause
Reflections of the core

The furious nightmare of reckless erosion
Falling and climbing
A loop of convulsion
An eruption of evil takes form (it is I)
What once where shattered is gathered
Stand tall aim towards the night
AD NOCTUM

The course of the essence sharpen the lines
Of the dimensions I am trembling between
The inner cause of the utter cause
Reflections within the core

Fire burn wisdom in me
Wisdom set mind and spirit free
Moonlight show me the mysteries of life
Winternight give me clearsight and storms to fight

    Did Vortex sing the black vox?

  11. Esteban Eduardo Díaz González

    it means "into darkness". It's latin

  12. Paulus Kennysberg

    I think it means ""toward/against the night." Noctum is night, and Ad is against, such as Ad Hominem. I could be wrong, but this album still rules. I remember listening to this when it came out, and it still rules. Their best...

  15. Tony Seth

    @8stringerr 'Into Darkness"

  16. EliteOfTheRad

    @8stringerr it's Latin. it seems to be a misspelling of "noctem", in which case it would mean "Toward the Night." but "ad noctum" literally means "toward of the nights," which makes no sense in Latin.
