lyrics

I behold...
your cold remains in my arms
as tears
a thousand tears they run down
Life abandoned us for now
inapt to say „farewell“
I make a sigh
of the same meaning.

In dusk my heart dwells
frozen by death's grip
how shall I live again?

„Lover, do not mourn my death
serene your life shall be
as it was of most precious beauty“

Do you remember how it was?
How we have danced 'neath maple trees?
How we felt the pulse of life in our veins?

„Deny it not, our time arrived
I feel no pain but one for you
I whisper thee such tender words:
'Forget me not'“

I failed to see
the warnings
but still in death your beauty shines
To stranger spheres
the air escapes
a silent kiss
to tell of hope

Vacant is my heart
forever it will be vacant!
Have we come this far
our traces in the snow now covered?
And sadness will last...

To forget for a second
the suffocating grief of live
and soon we shall realize
the fragileness of beauty

"I follow thee
and make a heaven of hell
to die upon the hand
I love so well"

Deprived of all that I loved
my heart it lies there bleeding
torn asunder we were
two lives estranged by stranger hands

So it shall end?
Only transparent memories remain
Hither we came
to close to the flame

I failed to see
the warnings
but still in death your beauty shines
To stranger spheres
the air escapes
a silent kiss
to tell of hope

Vacant is my heart
forever it will be vacant!
Have we come this far
our traces in the snow now covered?
And sadness will last...


(With these lyrics I covered a subject that is quite unusual for us: death. "State of Anaemia" is strongly influenced by the style of Shakespearean tragedies; even citing some lines of the second verse directly from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (Act II, Scene 1). As the epitome of tragedy, a story is told about two loving people, and the loss of one of them. The deceased person is still present in the mind of the living one; thus the latter wants to follow the first into death. I apparently liked Shakespeare A LOT back in the days.)
