Borknagar Lyrics

Album: Borknagar – Epic

Written By: Øystein G. Brun, Lars Nedland

Duration: 4.45

Circled

Thought formed the earth as earth formed the thought
it flew with the wind as the wind always sought the fire of feat
the soma of motion
producing the sweat that set off the corrosion that made the
flesh turn into earth again

So let the water drink you as Ophelia did
beloved daughter and cherished sister
Or worship the earth that Pompeii once hid
differing not between vagrant and minister

Take heed to the wind and its soft fingertips and fire’s red
thoughts and smouldering lips

So let the water drink you as Ophelia did
beloved daughter and cherished sister
Or worship the earth that Pompeii once hid
differing not between vagrant and minister

Sense – will you show me the way to the matter of radiant living
of having to shatter the fundamentals of intoxicant thinking
Opposing the stream , never stirring or blinking
but firmly preserving Sisyphus’ work

The boulder rolls heavily
is it in vain
Deducing the truth again and again
The wind speeds up as the earth turns hard
The mountain swells up but reaps pure disregard from
mythology history and all in between

So let the water drink you as Ophelia did
beloved daughter and cherished sister
Or worship the earth that Pompeii once hid
differing not between vagrant and minister
