Ancient Song Lyrics

Ancient – I Madman

Ancient is a Norwegian black metal band from Bergen, formed in 1992.

Walking in the dark
Not caring where it leads
It begins to rain
Drenched in cold (I madman)
I see a girl
The feeling of alone
I am drawn to her
She is shy and I become alive
The game
She smiles and my blood begins to flow

I madman

“Take my hand and walk with me
Be forewarned I am mad
Laughing now she follows me
What a bad day she has had
I, a madman walking in the rain
A rotting corpse that feels no pain
Upset and angry for feeling so alone
I wish to find a pretty face
And make her all my own”

Pretty pretty silent one
Standing all alone
Come a little closer
So I can hear your moan
Pretty pretty silly girl
I take your hand in mine
I promise that everything
Is just like wine

A bit afraid but still so brave
I madman

I think I love you
I madman”

A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Walks now with a woman
Whose throat he’d like to choke
I madman who holds your hand
Like the calming of the sea
Watch me as your life unfolds
And your soul is given to me”

“A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Walks now with a woman
Whose throat he’d like to choke
I madman who holds your hand
Like the calming of the sea
Watch me as your life unfolds
And your soul is given to me”

Many times I’ll see your face
Damn you madman
You haunt me every night
Without a trace
I madman go to happy place

Promises, charm and smiling eyes
I madman
Always kind and always nice
I think you love my grace

I madman
I madman
I mad

“The game is dead you want me
Remember I am mad
Question after question
Takes her by surprise
I tell her I am wicked
And she is not wise
So take the hand of a stranger
You not a madman”

Silly silly little girl
I am having so much fun
So deep you cannot run
Pretty pretty stupid girl
Stay

There is something I will teach you
Before you go away

“A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Lies now on the corpse
Of a girl he used to choke
Laughing as he looks at her
With a smile on his face
Grins while he talks to her
And heads off to the special place”

“A crazy violent stormy man
Hidden in a cloak
Lies now on the corpse
Of a girl he used to choke
Laughing as he looks at her
With a smile on his face
Grins while he talks to her
And heads off to the special place”

I madman

Ancient Song Lyrics

Ancient – Lilith’s Embrace

Ancient is a Norwegian black metal band from Bergen, formed in 1992.

[Caine:]
‘Alone in the darkness I can hear
The sweetest voice
Whispering words of surcease
And I rejoiced!

Who would dare speak to one so
Condemned as I?
Do you know of my most wicked crime?’

[Lilith:]
‘I’m known as Lilith, your father’s first bride
Like you I’m cursed to dwell in the shadows of night.’

[Caine:]
‘How can one survive here in the dark groves forlorn?
Without a sole compainion of a friend of some form?’

[Lilith:]
‘But there are many compainions in my infinite kingdom.
Through magick and sorcery I’ve found my freedom.’

[Caine:]
‘I was cold and she clothed me, I starved
And she fed me, I was mournful yet she loved me.

I shed bloody tears and she made them dissapear
She kissed away my tears
Her powers I could see would forever set me free

I begged her to awake me
Her blood, sweet as wine, as I drank she would sigh
Then I closed my eyes

Into the dark I fell and fell
A deepest abyss
Surrounded by obscurity
A price for her gift

Out from the frigid blackness
Came a radiant glimmering light
Revealing the flaming archangel
Known as Michael’

[Michael:]
‘Cursed son of Adam
Indeed his mercy is great
Bow thy head and repent thine sins now
Before it’s too late.’

[Caine:]
‘Not by his grace but my own,
I choose to live with pride
Your ‘merciful’ god disgusts me
His kingdom infested with lies.’

[Michael:]
‘You sad irrelevant fool
Have thy no shame?
You shall forever fear the light
Of the living flame.’

[Caine:]
‘On the mornign by silver wing
Raphael came to me and said
Abel did forgive me
Not by his (forgiveness) but mine own
For darkness is my home

I walk alone
My skin would burn by the sun’s rays I learned
And the dawn had returned to earth below
I did run seeking shelter from the sun
The endless night of Caine had begun

When I awoke, Uriel appeared
The reaper with black wings
But thrice denied his grace
Hence, my blood-curse begins…’
