English Lyrics

Through a benighted grotto
Eldritch scents waft
Through the centuries
Our revelry carries on

Leave your midnight ennui at the door

Even that downturned face
Will find itself upturned

Eerie melody reverberates
Reviving your soul
Outsiders will never comprehend
This ecstasy shared by we alone

Cast off your daily doldrums

Bewitched by a beauteous nightmare
Never to wake again

Writhing winding in the darkness
Led downward, one by one

Hand in hand we’ll run together
Straight into the depths of Hell

Slithering spiraling up from the depths
Led to madness, one by one

Revelling together on the Festival’s eve
Dancing straight to the edge of Hell

What awaits behind the mask?
The face reflected, recollection betrayed
That night That night

A memory sublimated
Tonight Tonight

Again, it begins

Now, it begins anew
Never to be stopped

This Festival night

Writhing winding in the darkness
Led downward, one by one

Hand in hand we’ll run together
Straight into the depths of Hell

Slithering spiraling up from the depths
Led to madness, one by one

Revelling together on the Festival’s eve
Straight to the edge of Hell on this Festival night

Let us Dance Let us Dance
Let us Dance
