English Lyrics
Courtesy of NECRONOMIDOL / Ricky Wilson

The moon fades into mist
As shadows gather among the pines

Hope for tomorrow evaporates
Withering in the wastes

Drowning in a sea of stars
Hoarfrost, your burial vestments
Stepping into a phantasm
As your soul freezes over

Midwinter night’s sky Absolute zero
Let the Aurora Borealis light your way

The endless frozen sky at your fingertips
As you overtake the glittering North Star

A world of clouds at your feet
The lingering warmth of memory – no way to return

The horizon unfurls ahead
Fill your outstretched hand with stardust

Drowning in a sea of stars
Hoarfrost, your burial vestments
Stepping into a phantasm
As your soul freezes over

Midwinter night’s sky Absolute zero
Let the Aurora Borealis light your way

The endless frozen sky at your fingertips
As you overtake the glittering North Star

Can you hear the voice on the frost-winds?
Leave this world behind
Join me and walk upon the wind

Midwinter night’s sky Absolute zero
Let the Aurora Borealis light your way

The endless frozen sky at your fingertips
As you overtake the glittering North Star

Can you hear the voice on the frost-winds?
Leave this world behind
Join me and walk upon the wind
