ebmbear When listening to their songs, I was instantly hooked with their unique take on Gothic Rock.

Their symbiosis of electronic Darkwave hightened with Rock / Goth Rock guitars is not entirely new, but set to use very, very effectively!

Added with the singers voice which's timbre shares similarities with the voice of Rosetta Stone, makes them just the perfect Gothic Rock outfit for me.

My favourite Tracks on The Tragedy Of Seconds Gone are: Desire and Winter Falls.

Also love their albums artwork!

gargoyle Gifted and handsome guys.. so they'll find their fem audience ;-)
But it's a PITA, only poor Audio quality at the CD ! Favorite track: In The Haze Of A Drunken Hour.

Gothic Crypt WISBORG's music is powerful and atmosperic, enriched with electronics that make them sound modern and fit for the dancefloor, while guitars & keyboards transfuse a dreary touch to their songs. Add some passionate deep vocals and you get a modern goth combo that stands out. Gothic Crypt approves. Favorite track: Becoming Caligari.

Seconds Gone 04:03
Transience constantly surrounds us Everything must die And so the flames of passion go out As fast as they ignite In my heart of black There's no room forever But if you don't mind I can give you pleasure Death is just around the corner A second and you're gone Let's live like there is no tomorrow 'Cause chances are there is none There's a tragedy that lies in the loss Of every second gone Find pleasure in mortality Eternity in seconds Amusement in futility Because the reaper beckons In my heart of black There's no room forever But this very night I will give you pleasure And the tragedy that lies in the loss Of every second gone Surpasses that of its predecessors Since there are less to come

A crimson blur Engraved in my mind A hazy memory Of nocturnal desire I miss your velvet skin And I miss the way your lips have felt on mine Yeah, I miss the haze of our drunken hours The joy and the happiness I felt I must see you again I miss your gentle touch And I miss the smell of your lustrous hair Yeah, I miss the haze of our drunken hours The joy and the happiness I felt I must feel you again A crimson blur Engraved in my mind A hazy memory Of nocturnal desire A crimson blur Is haunting my mind A hazy memory Of nocturnal desire Every gentle touch On my naked skin every sweet caress I want to feel again All your velvet kisses For which I yearn I want to receive again And to return
3.
I am so obsessed with you There is nothing I can do I must have you and I have to keep you I will never set you free Make me who I have to be You'll be at my mercy and I have none There's no salvation And in the end You'll be willing to do anything I will have become Caligari You will have been hypnotized Come on Yeah, in the end You'll be willing to do anything I will have become Caligari Caligari, 1, 2, 3, Come on I must have you Yeah I must possess you I must own you I will never set you free I will have you You will be my property And I'll never set you free
4.
O Rose thou art sick The invisible worm That flies in the night In the howling storm Has found out thy bed Of crimson joy And his dark secret love Does thy life destroy In thy bed of crimson joy For thy body is his refuge He'll be a grateful visitor But do not try to tame him For he's so voracious Though thy body is his refuge He'll never be thy prisoner O nature thou art so cruel To make us feel desire Feel pain Feel anger, disgust and despair Feel shame Feel agony and lust
5.
Desire 05:39
Oh, I know your heart is breaking I can see your misery I'm your object of desire I am your worst enemy And you laid your pride in ashes And you drowned your self-esteem And I wish that it was different But I still don't feel anything Well, I guess it's the end of the journey Each relation makes someone bleed Baby, this is the worst of all possible worlds And I am not who you want me to be I regret the ignition of your inner fire A mistake I did never intend Don't you know that you'd freeze in the heart you desire? I'm unable to meet your demands And I know that this time, it's the end of the journey Each relation makes someone bleed Baby, this is the worst of all possible worlds And I am not who you want me to be I regret the ignition of your inner fire A mistake I did never intend Don't you know that you'd freeze In the heart you desire, darling? Self-degradation to the point Of full self-abandonment But to be honest I couldn't love anyone I just love to be loved Yeah, this time it's the end of the journey Each relation makes someone bleed 'Cause this is the worst of all possible worlds And nothing is how we want it to be I regret the ignition of your inner fire A mistake I did never intend Don't you know that you'd freeze In the heart you desire, darling? Self-degradation to the point Of full self-abandonment But to be honest I couldn't love anyone I just love to be loved

I want you on all fours at my feet, girl And I want you to say my name I want you on all fours at my feet, girl And I want you to be ashamed Take off your furs, put some chains on And get that damn smile off your face Tell the truth, don't you want to serve me? “I do, but I want you to make me!” Alright, let's do it that way Get over here Let's get you undressed and then tied up Then covered in bruises and weals Tell the truth, don't you love to serve me? “Yes, I do!” Just for tonight, you're my property And lovely things break so easily All of my life, I have been careless And lovely things tend to break I want you on your knees, begging “Make me!” I want you at my feet, begging “Break me!”
7.
Stop undressing me with your eyes Time flies Start using your hands No fear to give in to temptation Don't waste your youth What a fire burns in young hearts But time flies Just ashes remain What a shame No fear to give in to temptation Don't waste your youth Time is fleeting Let's get undressed Cherry blossom, just in bloom You'll be withering too soon Time is fleeting Let's get undressed
8.
Winter Falls 04:50
I know that you can feel it This is not supposed to last And now your tears are falling like leaves Witness to the beauty of our spring When our love was blooming Autumn's going by I'm gonna bury you in snow Gave you all I had Forgive my apathy I am not the cure for your poisoned soul Not your antidote It's time to turn around And let our winter fall And from your tomb Flowers shall grow And what we had, I'll have again and again But you won't Autumn's going by I'm gonna bury you in snow Gave you all I had Forgive my apathy I am not the cure for your poisoned soul Not your antidote It's time to turn around And let our winter fall And bleeding I leave you in the snow Your mortal remains What you have been for me In spring
