Theatre of Tragedy - Dying, I Only Feel Apathy Recorded at Checkpoint Charlie, Stavanger, Norway 22.11.1995 Setlist: Sweet art thou Bring forth ye shadow Cheerful dirge Dying, I only feel apathy Hollow hearted, heart departed And when he falleth A hamlet for a slothful vassal To these words I behold no tongue Der tanz der schatten
One of the first songs ever written by Theatre of Tragedy. Here is Lament Of The Perishing Roses. Enjoy! Lyrics Where'er thou walkest, thou strewest roses - Thornless and deep reds are they; Onto a beauteous path harmony thou leadest, Where waterfalls sing their hymns of appraisal. Germinate into green the sterile earth - Equiponderat'd new life against decay. Wash the macrocosm with morning dew - Aurora of the waterfalls' encircling rainbows. In the horizon the appearance of a blackening empyrean, A furious whirling wind accompanied by skies of dusk. In the lead - The Pale Horse - pulling a cart of dead deities - The beautiful colors are drift'd away. Black Asphodels ascend from the overcloudéd livid blossom; Completely covering acherontic the land that was thought everlasting.
