Dark Funeral – My Funeral

Dark Funeral is a Swedish black metal band from Stockholm, founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993.

“At the end of this long and lonely path,
All misery will be gone”

Down this long and twining road
I walk with heavy feet
My head sunk down below
I have made up my mind
It’s time to end this life
Then peace I will find

Walking down to my funeral
The mortal sin…
Some might be sad
I’ll die with a grin
Walking down to my funeral
It’s time to die
When I leave this pathetic world
I will hold my head high

Angels are watching from above
As so does the evil ones
That lurks down below…

I am almost there – at my funeral

I reach the end of the twining road
I put a bullet in my gun, don’t need to reload
Feel the cold steel to my head
It’s time to pull the trigger
Soon I’ll be dead

Now when I’m at my funeral
I feel so free
Some might be sad
I’ll die with a grin
Now I’m at my funeral
I feel so free
The mortal sin…
Sin…

Angels and demons
Reach out for me
Kingdom’s wide open,
But I walk away from – thee

As I walk away…

“For eternal in twilight I dwell”

Walking down to my funeral
The mortal sin…
Some might be sad
I’ll die with a grin
Walking down to my funeral
It’s time to die
When I leave this pathetic world
I will hold my head high

Hold my head high…

All Songs Beseech

Beseech – Highwayman

Beseech is a gothic metal band from Borås, Sweden. They disbanded in 2006, and re-formed with a different line-up at the end of 2013.

[originally by Jimmy Webb]

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still

I was a dam builder
Across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around
I’ll always be around and around and around and around and around

I fly a starship
Across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again

I’m not aware of a live version from Beseech, so here’s another cover from The Highwaymen.

All Songs Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy – End Of Disclosure

Hypocrisy is a Swedish death metal band formed in October 1991 in Ludvika, Sweden by Peter Tägtgren.

I’m sitting on the moon looking down on you
And watching what you’ve become
The new world order has a plan for you
A great deception that will make you numb

Fantasy invasion from the sky
Trillion dollars secret funds
This is a new pond 
Only for the selected ones

End of disclosure
Now the countdown has begun
End of Disclosure
Before they kill everyone

Don’t speak 
You will disappear
They’re gonna erase the truth
Mass genocide 
70% will die
It’s too late for you

Fantasy invasion from the sky
Trillion dollars secret funds
Drilling cities underground⬧
Only for the selected ones

End of disclosure
Now the countdown has begun
End of Disclosure
Before they kill everyone

They are gonna nuke the world
When they’re hiding in their Bunks
Slaughter us like animals

All Songs Thy Serpent

Thy Serpent – Flowers Of Witchery Abloom

Thy Serpent is a Finnish black metal band from Espoo. It started out as a solo project by Sami Tenetz in 1992. A full lineup was acquired in 1995.

[Music : S.Tenetz, Lyrics : A.Litmanen]

As it to hasten the fading glow of the sun,
nocturnal insects rise in their constant hum
The humid earth responde to Twilight’s call,
sending forth the mists of evenfall…

Into shades of grey the evergreen’s subdued
by my feet, flowers of Witchery are abloom
Bittersweet scented in this late summer night
human consciousness penetrated with starlight

A journey will begin here ; onerous thoughts drift to me
now as the powers of nature are manifest
The meadow grows into an alien garden of plenitude
Destination unknown, sanity put to a test

The Glacial epoch brought these moss covered stones
on which I stir from the grasp of restless dreams.
I feel a chilly breath pass through my hollow bones
the reign of summer will soon be dethroned

Like a corpse rotting in a rack
or wintry winds coming over fast
It is all reminder of a single fact ;
all life held so dear is only here to pass


Sadly, I’m not aware of a live version – So at this time no Live for this track.

All Songs Sentenced

Sentenced – The Suicider

Sentenced was a Finnish gothic metal band that played melodic death metal in their early years. The band formed in 1989, in the town of Muhos, Finland, and broke up in 2005.

[music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, words: the serial self-killer]

“‘.I am the light that shall lead you to darkness'”
Well, here I am, I’m back again
From the Deadlands I descend’
back from the dead, back from The End
‘I’m here to take Revenge!

Soon the deathly dusk will fall
and the Night I’ve waited for
‘at the dawn you’ll live no more
Breathing through Death’ Living for Bloodshed’
I’m the Suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away

I live to kill and kill to live
And long for dying endlessly
Each time I kill I’m born again
‘I have become The End

Thus I am and thus I’ll die
yet another thousand times
‘I am dead and I am alive
Take a deep breath’
It’s the last one you will get!!!

I’m the Suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away
I’m the Suicider seeking for the End of Life
(But) killing me is not enough to cease the flame inside
‘Thus I kill and thus I`ll die’
Thus I will live for all time

I’m the suicider dying every night and day
Killing me is not enough to make me go away

I’m the suicider seeking for the end of life
But killing me is not enough to cease the flame inside

…the flame inside [2x]
