    Where the Darkened Light Shines Upon

    Sheogorath

    Verse I

    Locked up below
    Hiding from the darkened light
    Fighting not to starve or succumb
    Move swift act fast
    Learn the layout of the land
    Caution is the key to survive
    Keep your head low
    Out of reach of blackened light
    Just one touch will rot you away
    Still not extinct
    Every day another fight
    Lead your people on to survive

    Chorus

    Fear the rise of dawn
    Befouling arrival
    Resistance long forgone
    Eternal hiding underground
    Mankind has withdrawn
    No chance of survival
    Corruption spreading on
    Where the darkened light shines upon

    Verse II

    Fear the dark light
    Creeping from infinite sky
    Horror from beyond the deep night
    No sun no life
    All consuming deity
    Heeding prayers of the blind lambs
    Long gone not lost
    Memories before the fall
    Open sky with sun, stars and moon
    Death from beyond
    Where the darkened light has shined
    Rapturing its way through the night

    2x Chorus

    Fear the rise of dawn
    Befouling arrival
    Resistance long forgone
    Eternal hiding underground
    Mankind has withdrawn
    No chance of survival
    Corruption spreading on
    Where the darkened light shines upon

    The Fable of Skyrim

    Sheogorath

    Verse I

    Through the ice and snow I ride
    Relentless on my quest
    Armed with blades of Daedric steel
    Shouts embark from my chest

    Chorus

    Defying death, relentless force
    Trained in magic and the voice
    Leader of the noblest guilds
    Skilled with axes and dual wields
    Long foretold in the Elder Scrolls
    Journeying where my destiny calls

    Bridge

    My enemies I crush with might
    The righteous gain my aid
    Slaying beasts in barren lands
    The frozen soil gets drowned in blood

    Verse II

    Enchanted rings infused with strength
    My sword will reave your soul
    As master of illusion
    The Dragonborn will bring you down

    Chorus

    Defying death, relentless force
    Trained in magic and the voice
    Leader of the noblest guilds
    Skilled with axes and dual wields
    Long foretold in the Elder Scrolls
    Journeying where my destiny calls

    Alduin

    Fen du hin sille ko Sovngarde! (I will devour your souls in Sovngarde)
    Daar Lein los dii (The world is mine)
    Zu'u Alduin (I am Alduin)
    Zu'u lost daal (I have returned)
    Zok sahrot do naan ko Lein (Most mighty of any in the World)

    For you I’ve slain my son in worship!

    Sheogorath

    Sheogorath

    Verse I

    A new arrival!
    A shame about my gatekeeper
    I am so happy
    I could just tear out your intestines and strangle you with them

    2 x Chorus

    Cheese for everyone!
    To celebrate cheese for none!
    As mad as I can be for you to see your mind must be free, let me help thee
    Hats for everyone!
    From flesh and skin nicely done!
    Horrible and wonderful, just horribly wonderful
    Now get out before I change my mind or my mind changes me!

    Verse II

    I am part of you
    Little mortal
    I am a shadow of your subconsciousness
    A blemish on your fragile little psyche

    You kneel before me begging for your worthless life
    Before I kill you I will break your fucking mind

    So many voices to silence in my head
    So many choices and ways to bring your death

    You kneel before me begging for your worthless life
    Before I kill you I will break your fucking mind

    Enter the Black City

    Sheogorath

    Verse I

    Enter the city gates
    The ebony portal
    Pitch black obsidian
    Scorching frozen monoliths
    Well-armed, be prepared
    Lingering evil
    Dead stone animate
    Fight the crystal guardians

    Chorus

    The heart of the city lies deep within its underground
    Guarded by ensouled constructions the abyss profound
    Weapons of magical destruction protecting the core
    Rise from the dead and remember the oath that you swore

    Verse II

    Enter the city gates
    Flashing memories
    Strangely familiar
    Black obsidian monoliths
    Can’t be here again
    Am I dreaming?
    Killed by the guardians
    Now I know their weakness

    Chorus

    The heart of the city lies deep within its underground
    Guarded by ensouled constructions the abyss profound
    Weapons of magical destruction protecting the core
    Rise from the dead and remember the oath that you swore

    Verse III

    Enter the city gates
    Can’t break the cycle
    Focus and memorize
    Pushing through this nightmare
    Failure killed again
    Start all over
    Cannot remember when
    Hollowed for my sins!

    Chorus

    The heart of the city lies deep within its underground
    Guarded by ensouled constructions the abyss profound
    Weapons of magical destruction protecting the core
    Rise from the dead and remember the oath that you swore

    The Forge

    Sheogorath

    Verse I

    Arise cosmic forge
    bring the genesis, of the universe
    Unholy creature
    life and death, forged within your matter
    No hammer, no anvil
    a dark power beyond perception
    All existence must bow to your will!

    Verse II

    It's breathing in slumber
    commanding the cosmic chime
    Dissolving and weaving
    the threads of space and time
    No boundaries, no limits
    surpassing eternity
    Source of creation and destruction!

    Verse III

    All hail cosmic forge
    the iniquity of time itself
    Malevolent, defying
    human race, their progressivity of thought
    No body, non-conscious
    just dark power beyond perception
    All existence is bound to your will!

    Chorus

    Evil
    The essence of destruction
    Ageless
    You are not bound by time
    Eternal
    No end and no beginning
    Beware
    The forge will re-awaken

    Bridge

    Breaching the barrier containing time and space
    Crushing through dimensions, creating countless realities
    Devourer of galaxies and crafter of what may be
    Origin and destruction, the smith above all gods
    High supreme of the emptiness, a king without a soul
    Worshipped by the conscienceless, not known to mortal men
    Primordial being from infinite worlds, created by itself
    The Α and Ω, the cosmic forge will burn again

    Chorus

    Evil
    The essence of destruction
    Ageless
    You are not bound by time
    Eternal
    No end and no beginning
    Beware
    The forge will re-awaken

    Infernal Kingdom

    Sheogorath

    Verse I

    Falling silent screams resound
    Painful echoes form infernal harmonies
    Ghostly shiftings haunt these halls
    Eldritch knowledge wields the key to pass this gate

    Verse II

    Architecture from beyond
    Resisting perception and twisting constantly
    Nameless chaos rules above
    A maddening order is thriving from beneath

    Chorus

    Infernal Kingdom
    Where madness reigns
    Bewitching darkness
    And stygian graves
    Unholy wisdom
    Eternal wake
    Relentless torture
    Past the daemon gate

    Chorus

    Infernal Kingdom
    Where madness reigns
    Bewitching darkness
    And stygian graves
    Unholy wisdom
    Eternal wake
    Relentless torture
    Enter the daemon gate.....

    Dawn Eternal

    Verse I

    The hunt is done
    Reawaken the sun
    The rise of dawn
    Scares the undead spawn

    Chorus

    Join me in the broad daylight
    The night has ended and so has the fight
    Days of darkness forever gone
    The final battle has been won
    May the shadows though be large
    The dawn shines bright along our path
    Eternally we’ll bath in light
    We’ve taken back our home tonight

    Verse II

    All grief is gone
    We achieved this as one
    Now at first light
    Let us honour those who died

    Bridge

    This night reigned for many centu-
    ries without the faintest memo-
    ries of light and warmth within mens-
    heart but now the dawn heralds a
    Start the celebration and dance
    We have taken our second chance
    End to all these nightmares nocturnal
    May this dawn be lasting eternal

    Chorus

    Join me in the broad daylight
    The night has ended and so has the fight
    Days of darkness forever gone
    The final battle has been won
    May the shadows though be large
    The dawn shines bright along our path
    Eternally we’ll bath in light
    We’ve taken back our home tonight
