Sopor Aeternus: Ehjeh Ascher Ehjeh (1995)

Anima I

The Woman I am no mirror can see,
My breasts are still small and my voice is so deep.
The Woman I am she cannot feel love,
I wish to cut my genitals and feed them to the dogs.
The Woman I am is accepting/receiving all the pain.
The needles to burn out the ugly remains.
Suppression is impossible, I must live it out,
My true self is female and there is no doubt...


Shadowsphere II

"Black wall, eat up my life and suffocate!"
This is a sad day in the world of shades.
Two suns are dancing cruelly in the dark,
Forcefully swimming through-out this space...


Saltatio Crudelitatis

Tongue of silence, lick my lips,
Steal my thoughts and steal my pride!
My soul lies offered as I'm waiting,
Intoxicate me, when you step inside!
Hold my hands, my hands are trembling,
Your charming beauty takes my breath.
Fragrant perfumes veil my senses,
Hold my hands, sweet tormentress!
Out of darkness we all came from,
Flight from darkness is in vain.
I'm the banquet, I'm delicious,
Into darkness we'll fall back again...

Meister des Mordes, nimm meine Augen,
An diesem Ort kann ich nicht sein!
Strecke mich nieder, zerschlage mein Haupt,
Meister des Mordes, schenke mir den Tod!
Meister des Mordes, erhöre mein Flehen,
Beende die Leiden, nimm den Schmerz von mir!
Öffne die Tore, es ist für mich Zeit...
Meister des Mordes, dieser Tanz ist Grausamkeit!
Meister des Mordes, nimm meine Augen,
Gefangen im Fleische, erbärmlich und alt!
Führe mich fort in die Dunkelheit,
Vater meiner Seele, dieser Tanz ist Grausamkeit.
Vater meiner Seele, reiß' mich in den Tod...

...Es tut mir leid.

Tanz der Grausamkeit (demo-version)

Tongue of silence, lick my lips,
Steal my thoughts and steal my pride.
My soul lies offered as I'm waiting,
Intoxicate me when you step inside.
Hold my hands, my hands are trembling,
Your charming beauty takes my breath.
Fragrant perfumes veil my senses,
Hold my hands, sweet tormentress.
Out of darkness we all came from,
Flight from darkness is in vain.
I'm the banquet, I'm delicious,
Into darkness we'll fall back again...

Meister des Mordes, nimm meine Augen,
An diesem Ort kann ich nicht sein,
Strecke mich nieder, zerschlage mein Haupt.
Meister des Mordes, schenke mir den Tod.
Meister des Mordes, erhöre mein Flehen,
Beende die Leiden, nimm den Schmerz von mir.
Öffne die Tore, es ist für mich Zeit,
Meister des Mordes, dieser Tanz ist Grausamkeit.
Meister des Mordes, nimm meine Augen,
Gefangen im Fleische, erbärmlich und alt.
Führe mich fort in die Dunkelheit,
Vater meiner Seele, diese Tanz ist Grausamkeit.
Vater meiner Seele, reiß' mich in den Tod...

Es tut mir leid...
