from euphoria to hell
Гоняла я туда-сюда альбом Dragony, и полюбилась мне одна песенка. Приключенческо-эпическая, красивая, и текст такой браво-заманительный (после фразы "Come with me now into the depths of hell" в самом начале удержаться, конечно, невозможно). В конце концов сдалась, решила просмотреть текст и поперхнулась.

Хорош ли текст? О да. Но штука в том, что он о путешествии Данте и Вергилия! Да-да, том самом :eyebrow:

Мне всегда нравилась «Божественная комедия», но черт, никогда не приходило в голову смотреть на нее в таком эпичном ключе. Восхищаюсь людьми, которые так умеют и выкидывают подобные шедевры.

Come with me now into the depths of hell
Walk with me now to where the angel fell
Cross the rivers death, pain and fear
And abandon all hope, ye who enter here

Down in the dark he awaits
Charon, and he will take us through the gates
Of hell on his boat to the shore
Of the night and the nevermore

Down now
Walk with us now
Dream with us now
And then sleep now
In silence

Dante: I see them wander
They are those without faith
As spiritless hollows, and bodiless wraiths
Here see them hurled, the restless and wild
Those wanton hearts
Whom their lust hath beguiled

Cerberus!
Virgil: In the shadows lies here
Watching us!
Virgil: As the gluttonous are writhing in the pits
Here with the dark spawn of the world

Hunger burn!
Virgil: In the greedy who will
Never learn to be satisfied with what they've earned
Dante: And smolder in the fires
Till the debts are all returned

Dante: Madness arise in the circle of lies
Bow to the fallen, the lord of the flies

In the circles of the nine
Where the sun in silence lies tonight
Where the darkest spirits shine
In eternal ice their lord resides
In the circles of the nine
What was hidden now shall come to light
Where the damned appear divine
And the silent sun will weep for you tonight
It has begun, The Silent Sun

Virgil: Crossing Styx' waters
When at last you shall see
Those drowned in their anger, an infernal decree
Dante: Those who have fallen in dark heresy
Are buried in fire, and they cry out to me

Minotaur!
Dante: With violence fallen
Burn them out!
Dante: And turn them into cinders and then raise
Their brazen ashes to the skies

Let them grow!
Virgil: In the muddy waters
Down below with the price
They must pay for their lies
Dante: As trees that never die
Along the shores of silent cries

Virgil: Madness arise in the circle of lies
Bow to the fallen, the lord of the flies

In the circles of the nine
Where the sun in silence lies tonight
Where the darkest spirits shine
In eternal ice their lord resides
In the circles of the nine
What was hidden now shall come to light
Where the damned appear divine
And the silent sun will weep for you tonight
Here we are one, The Silent Sun

Caina! Antenora!
Caina! And Juddeca!
Caina! Ptolomea!
Drowning in the river

Caina! Antenora!
Caina! And Juddeca!
Caina! Ptolomea!
Drowning here forever

Dante: in the dark heart of hell
In a lake of frozen fire
Virgil: Here resides the one, the lord of hell's desire
Dante: The fallen angel cries, eternal pain incarnate
Virgil: The failure of mankind
With eyes of steel and garnet

Virgil: Here we pay the price
For all our heart's desire
Dante: Hear the lord of lies
His wings are beating higher

Both: The centre of the world
We wander on despairing
On the other side unfurled
Comes the Silent Sun on glaring

In the circles of the nine
Where the sun in silence lies tonight
Where the darkest spirits shine
In eternal ice their lord resides
In the circles of the nine
What was hidden now shall come to light
Where the damned appear divine
And the silent sun
Won't weep for you tonight
It shall be done, The Silent Sun
