Insomnium - Down With The Sun Lyrics




O darkness, if in thy arms
I could rest for a while
And with these earthly eyes
See thy dim smile

Maid of twilight, lass of duskfall
Hang the moon on the sky's arch
Soothe the weight of a darkling day
Croon me into the slumber

Rock me here in the birch's lap
Swing in the manor of wind
Lay down your weary head
Let the blue stars darken
[x2]

O silence, if in thy cradle
I could sway like a child
I hear the amending song
The sighing of the shades

Maid of twilight, lass of duskfall
Serve thy goblet to me
Let me drink to the last drop
The sweet opiate of dreams

Rock me here in the birch's lap
Swing in the manor of wind
Lay down your weary head
Let the blue stars darken
[x2]

Ours is the silence
The echo old ageless night
A gleam in the blackest of streams
One fleeing moment
For vain is all the toil and trouble
Vain is all the heartbreak
In the end I'll find my solace
In an earthen cradle

So good night

    The combination "Equivalence - Down With The Sun" truly is the most magnificent album opener/song combination of all time. Goosebumps every time.

  8. Mohith Dayananda

    This is the song that had me hooked to insomnium!
    Man, and to think this has less than a million views.. Truly, a hidden gem

  9. NJ R

    This was the first INSOMNIUM song I heard. After listening to it like 60 times, I went out to listen to everything else they had. I have been an INSOMNIUM fan ever since and will always be. I am representing all of the Melodic/ Death Metal scene from PUERTO RICO.

    O darkness, if in thy arms
    I could rest for a while
    And with these earthly eyes
    See thy dim smile

    Maid of twilight, lass of duskfall
    Hang the moon on the sky's arch
    Soothe the weight of a darkling day
    Croon me into the slumber

    Rock me here in the birch's lap
    Swing in the manor of wind
    Lay down your weary head
    Let the blue stars darken
    [x2]

    O silence, if in thy cradle

    In an earthen cradle

  88. Nicolas Mkrtchian

    "Down With The Sun"

    O darkness, if in thy arms I could rest
    For a while and with these earthly eyes
    See thy dim smile

    Maid of twilight, lass of duskfall
    Hang the moon on the sky's arch
    Soothe the weight of a darkling day

    "Rock here in the birch's lap
    Swing in the manor of wind
    Lay down your weary head
    Let the blue stars darken"

    O silence, if in thy cradle I could sway
    Like a child, heart the amending song
    The sighing of the shades

    Maid of twilight, lass of duskfall
    Serve thy goblet to me
    Let me drink to the last drop
    The sweet opiate of the dreams

    Ours is the silence
    The echo old ageless night
    A gleam in the blackest of streams
    One fleeing moment

    For vain is all the toil and trouble
    Vain is all the heartbreak
    In the end I'll find my solace
    In an earthen cradle

    So good nigh
