Inner Sanctum Lyrics by Celtic Frost

Inner Sanctum Lyrics

    Sleep brings no joy to me
    Remembrance never dies
    My soul is given to misery
    And lives in sighs ...
    The shadows of the dead,
    My waken eyes may never see,
    Surround my bed
    That from which they sprung - eternity

    Beneath the turf
    The silent dead

    Sleep brings no wish to knit
    My harrassed heart beneath
    My only wish is to forget
    In the sleep of death
    Death is my joy
    I long to be at rest
    I wish the damp earth covered
    This desolate brest

    Beneath the mould
    The silent dead

    But the glad eyes around us
    Must weep as we have done
    And we must see the same gloom
    Eclipse their morning sun

    Oh not for them - Should we despair
    The grave is drear - But they're not there
    Their dust is mingled - With the sod
    Their pale souls - Are gone, to god

    Well, may they live in ecstasy
    Their long eternity of joy
    At least I wouldn't bring them down
    With me to weep, to groan
    And what's the future
    A sea beneath the cloudless sun
    A mighty, glorious, dazzling sea
    Stretching into infinity

    My inner sanctum
