Katatonia - Velvet Thorns (Of Drynhwyl) Lyrics

Ten Strings of Darkness on a Violin Sad
I watch the Mountains where the Frost begins
The Northern Storm is Guiding me
To the Forest

Silently the Nightbirds fly
Their last scream my eternal Dirge
Under the Fullmoon a Funeral
In the Forest

Still I walk with open wounds but the Third is now
Through the ashes of a Dying Love a new soul is born
I watch the feathers like Snow in the Winter
The Angels that fell, splendid to rape

Tall are the shadows that dance before me
as they
Shows the way to the Dawn
An Autumn forest that never reach
Condemned to Sorrow

Chasing the Wind / Like a Spirit fly
Through the Autumn trees / Towards the Sky
Hoofs are pounding / In the clouds above
The Chariot of Sorrow / Watch me die
Hear the Violin / So sad and blackened
Like a Breeze / The songs of Drynhwyl
Chasing the wind / Like my spirit die
Dreaming of the Queen / The queen of roses

Now they die, Pure Sorrow flow
My Souls Funeral, Too close to the End
Now they Die, Purest blood pours
Forever Die, but I must...

I must Die
Through the Sky
And the Forest

Follow the Wind, go North my Child
to the purest of Winters
Go to the Forest that never Ends
There you'll find your fate

And to the North I rode, on the coldest of winds
I watched the Mountains where the frost begun
Where no Angels ever dare to tread
Where Death is all mine

At last I found the Throne of Bereavement
Grim and bleak raised to the Sky
The Velvet Thorns of Drynhwyl are mine
and so are death and sadness

My final Sacrfice
In the trees you will hear my voice
ever calling ever falling

Ten Strings of Darkness on a Violin Sad
Flowing tunes on Autumn Funeral
Ashes spread in the Northern Storm

  3. skypjuh

    You know what I`d love to hear..?
    Peter Steele singing this in his low deep voice

  4. skypjuh

    loved this sound yet could never bare the vocal delivery let alone the lyrics..
    such a shame...if only I could find an instrumental version.

  5. Bjoern Olerich

    best Katatonia song ever

  6. sdkee

    Ah, back when Katatonia was the best doom-death band around. Before becoming the best goth (?) metal band around.

    Ah, the good ol days...

  7. fleshgod apoc95

  8. Paul Puga Zapata

    the true Katatonia

    The best band, I love this song! Perfect!

  11. PewPewPlasmagun

    @ProtectiveFountains I think I was mistaken, because they were not included in the ORIGINAL version. dark metal rulez!

  12. PewPewPlasmagun

    @ProtectiveFountains they are in the 2006 reissue too

  13. PewPewPlasmagun

    IMHO better lyrics are in "the northern silence" and "palace of frost" from this very album.
    but its an EPIC song, cant argue with that.

  14. Allan de Assis

    Their best song, indeed.

  15. Sherif Kamal


  16. TransylvanianWinter

    Awesome quality, and of course, an amazing song. Dance of December Souls easily gets a spot in my top 5 best albums of all time.

  17. Morgenrot Sigyn

    totally agree...masterpiece of katatonia!
