Insomnium - The Primeval Dark Lyrics




Rooted within the pitch-black heart
Entrenched behind the weary eyes
In the faraway song the cold sea sung
In the calm whisper of winds afar

It lies, calls and awaits
Deep in the primeval dark
Embodiment of despair
That never leaves or severs the ties

    This is where I had hoped Amorphis would have gone after Elegy. Almost 20 years ago. Thankfully they course corrected eventually. I will close my eyes and pretend they did.

    Unbelievable drumming....enter into a meditative trance in 4 seconds.

    The album cover looks like the artwork for the MTG card Damnation

    Rooted within the pitch-black heart
    (the pitch-black heart)
    Entrenched behind the weary eyes
    (the weary eyes)
    In the faraway song the cold sea sung
    (the cold sea sung)
    In the calm whisper of winds afar
    (those winds afar)
    It lies,…


    When your heart gives out and your love collapses
    When the hand that never lets go is there no more
    When you reap and sow only throe and resentment


    When there's no one else but you to blame it for
    When all you ever wish for is to go back once more
    When all you ever wish for is to change it all
    When all you feel is remorse, pain and regret
    When you dwell in the past unable to move on


    And we drift far away in our dreams
    Gather further distance while we sleep
    Build a wall of glass thick and deep
    We hear but choose not to listen


    And we drift far away in our dreams
    Gather further distance while we sleep
    Still the bridge is inflamed with fire
    Leave all the love we had behind


    When you realize that your life is a one-way road
    When you realize that there's no point of return

    When you understand that you can't go back anymore
    When you understand you can only move onwards

    And we drift far away in our dreams
    Gather further distance while we sleep
    Build a wall of glass thick and deep
    We hear but choose not to listen

    And we drift far away in our dreams
    Gather further distance while we sleep
    Still the bridge is enflamed with fire
    Leave all the love we had behind

    Slow down
    We need to slow down
    We need to slow down
    So I can catch you

    We need to slow down so I can catch you
    We need to slow down so you can catch me
    We need to slow down so I can catch you
    We need to slow down so you can catch me

    Who left this bowl of onions here?

  10. Леха Рыжов

    j[охуенно !"

  11. Pathogenus

    when you play your playlist on shuffle and another song comes out after primeval dark and it just feels off

  12. Bhushan Yavagal

    It's almost a sin not listening to them together.

  13. Quietus5

    These are two powerful songs. That bass drum pattern/guitar riff is fantastic!

    Joshua Cripps

    I’ve just recently discovered Insomnium and I just can’t get enough of these 2 songs together!

    Quietus5

    @Joshua Cripps, agreed man!

  14. Federica Porcheddu

    Absolutely one of my all time favourites from this band and in the whole genre. I just weep, everytime I listen to it, as it is so sweet and emotional... especially at 7:00!

    Jared Morse

    I feel that.

  15. Nik Portch

    Primeval dark... Anyone else get the Dr who vibe?

  16. TheSlayer811

    Балдею с неё!!!

  17. Jum yum

    Insomnium is awesome, but the mastering could be better :/

    Mika Salinto

    Youtube has it's own algorhytms that change the sound, could be that. Or a bad rip.

    Sergey Rogachov

    @Mika Salinto one band that sounded live much better then recorded.
    record of last albums is too pop

  18. Андрей Муравьёв

    I was listening to this album repeatedly for a half of a year. It was epic as fuck.

  19. Nara Garcia

    Perfect!! That is thd kind of music I needed to listen today, because I feel horrible and music is the only thing that put me out of the Chaos of my mind. Thank you so much Insomnium

    Saw them last night and they played Primeval Dark first. Had to find out what it was called. Good show.

    Jeff B

    Saw them opening for Epica? That was a fantastic show! Insomnium by themselves, completely owned the stage!!!

    W H I Z A R D

    Fuck you. Lol I want to see them soo bad.

  28. Muhammed Saad

    Rooted within the pitch-black heart
    Entrenched behind weary eyes
    In the faraway song the cold sea sung
    In the calm whisper of winds afar
    It lies, calls and awaits deep in the primeval dark
    Embodiment of despair that never leaves or severs the ties


    I would tattoo that on my back with epic font <3

  34. IAmWhoTheGodsDetest

    The Primeval Dark and While We Sleep are two of my favorite tracks off Shadows of the Dying Sun. They flow together so perfectly and they are truly beautiful songs.

  35. Ike Green

    This whole album is amazing.. kinda makes me want to play skyrim though..

    M. Murry

    Daaamn ❤

    Derp Derp

    I can't stand basic ass fake ass gamers like you

    yoursoultasteslikebacon

    @Derp Derp What, did Mommy not hug you enough as a child?

    Derp Derp

    @yoursoultasteslikebacon so my dislike for Skyrim and fake ass cucks that think Skyrim is amazing translates to a troubled childhood? God you're an idiot

    yoursoultasteslikebacon

    @Derp Derp And you're an inflammatory douchebag. Fuck in the general direction of off.

  36. Temo

    epic one, must listen everyday like a drug

    Jamison C H

    @Caveman Protogonos Every day my walk to work and morning song

    Sergey Rogachov

    not this exactly album , but i listened one album of this band for a year . every fucking day.

    Ivan Kolarov

    @Sergey Rogachov ..."Winter's Gate"?

    Sergey Rogachov

    @Ivan Kolarov
    since the day it all came down.
    I was at a live show of winter's gate though.
    It was very good. wacken 2017.

    Andrei B. -special-

    If you could overdose off this, definitely would've a long time ago...
    Also, this is the first track that introduced me into actual metal, so yeah, been listening to it ever since :)

  37. Dusty Mug

    YEAHHHH \M/

  38. Stephen Kuo

    The "Album" of this year

    PoolManis

    Album of year always comes when Imsomnium releases album ;)

  39. Alex Savatin

    truly amazing

  40. Sarah Adams

    Only six likes? Really???

    Dr. O'REGAN G

    Sarah Adams, this band is fantastic.

  41. Robert Lynch

    Thanks for posting song one and two together. I have this cd, great intro to the whole thing.

    Nicholas Ryan

    Yeah, they link together inter-track so I feel like it was a proper thing to do. I actually really hate when bands decide to do that, but I forgive Insomnium for it since they're so great :v

    Dan Sterling

    +Nicholas Ryan I also forgive Devin Townsend for this too

    No Soup For You

    I feel it's a love hate relationship, the intro song just makes the song following it so much better because of the build up, but then sometimes the intro song is like 30 seconds, and it would sound dumb for it to come on, only to have the song following it be something else. (if you're listening to music on random)

    PCON36

    They did a great job on the build up. One of the few intro songs out there that actually deserves it's place.
