Some enigmatic lyrics from Enigma project by Michael Cretu

Album title MCMXC A.D.
The Voice of Enigma (Cretu)
Good evening
This is the voice of Enigma

In the next hour
We will take you with us
Into another world …
Into the world of music, spirit, and meditation

Turn off the light
Take a deep breath
And relax

Start to move slowly
Very slowly

Let the rhythm be your guiding light

Principles of Lust
A: Sadeness
(Cretu/Fairstein/Peterson)

Procedamus in pace
In nomine Christi, Amen

Cum angelis et pueris,
fideles inveniamur

Attollite portas, principes, vestras
Et elevamini, portae aeternales
Et introibit Rex gloriae
Qius est iste Rex gloriae?

Sade, dites-moi
Sade, donnes-moi

Procedamus in pace
In nomine Christi, Amen

Sade, dites-moi:
Qu’est-ce que tu vas cherche?
Le bien par le mal?
La vertu par le vice?

Sade, dites-moi:
Pourquoi l’evangile du mal?
Quelle est ta religion?
Ou sont tes fideles?
Si tu es contre Dieu, tu es contre l’homme.

Sade, es-tu diabolique, ou divin?

Sade, dites-moi Hosanna
Sade, donnes-moi Hosanna
Sade, dites-moi Hosanna
Sade, donnes-moi Hosanna

(Procedamus in pace)
In nomine Christi, Amen

B: find love
(Cretu)

The principles of lust
Are easy to understand
Do what you feel
Feel until the end

The principles of lust
Are burned in your mind
Do what you want
Do it until you find
love…

The principles of lust
Are easy to understand
Do what you feel
Feel until the end

The principles of lust
Are burned in your mind
Do what you want
Do it until you find
love…

I am to come

C: Sadeness (Reprise)
(Cretu/Fairstein/Peterson)

rumainevni seledif

Sade, dites-moi
Sade, donnes-moi
Sade, dites-moi Hosanna
Sade, donnes-moi Hosanna
Sade, dites-moi Hosanna
Sade, donnes-moi Hosanna
Sade, dites-moi Hosanna

Callas Went Away (Cretu)
Callas went away
But her voice forever stay
Callas went away
She went away

God bless you

Ah! Je relis sans cesse!
Je devrais les detruires!

Ces lettres, ces lettres!
Ces lettres, ces lettres!

Mea Culpa (Cretu/Fairstein)
Kyrie eleison
Christe eleison

Je ne dors plus (The time has come)
Je te desire (The time has come)
Prends-moi
Je suis a toi
Mea culpa

Je veux aller au bout des mes fantasmes
Je sais que c’est interdit
Je suis folle
Je m’abandonne
Mea culpa

Kyrie eleison
Christe eleison

Je suis la, et ailleurs
Je n’ai plus rien
Je deviens folle
Je m’abandonne
Mea culpa

Je ne dors plus
Je te desire
Prends-moi
Je suis a toi …

Kyrie eleison
Christe eleison

Je suis la, et ailleurs
Je veux tout
Quand tu veux
Comme tu veux
Mea culpa

Kyrie eleison

The Voice & The Snake (Cretu/Peterson)
The first bowl on the earth
The second bowl on the sea
The third bowl on the rivers
The fourth bowl on the sun
The fifth bowl on the beast
The sixth bowl on the stars
The seventh bowl on the air

And the earth turned grey
The sea turned black
The rivers turned red
The sun turned cold
The beast turned pale
The stars turned fast
The air turned to poison

Knocking on Forbidden Doors (Cretu)
Water … water …

Eia, ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte
Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui.

Water … water …

Water … water …

Back to the Rivers of Belief
A: Way to Eternity (Cretu)

… quem quaerimus adjutorem, nisi te, Domine…
Sancte Deus, Sancte fortis, Sancte misericors Salvator,
amarae morti ne tradas nos.

B: Hallelujah (Cretu)

Turn off the light
Take a deep breath
Relax
Relax

Turn off the light
Relax
Take a deep breath
Relax

O Sacrum Convivium

Ha … Halle … Sacrum Convivium
Hallelujah

The Rivers of Belief (Cretu, Fairstein)
Take me back, to the rivers of belief
Take me back, to the rivers of belief, my friend
I look inside my heart
I look inside my soul
I promise you I will return

And when the Lamb opened the seventh seal, silence covered the sky

Take me back, to the rivers of belief
Take me back, to the rivers of belief, my friend
I look inside my heart
I look inside my soul
I’m reaching out for you

Let’s hope one day
We’ll rest in peace, on my rivers of belief.

Album title The CROSS of Changes
Second Chapter (Cretu)

We came out from the deep
To help and understand, but not to kill

It takes many years till we succeed
To clear the debts of many,
many hundred years.

The Eyes of Truth (Cretu)
Alsyn gazrin zereglee, aduu shig mal shig torolzonoo khuoo

Je me regarde
Je me sens
Je vois des enfants
Je suis enfant!

The eyes of truth
Are always watching you.

Return to Innocence (Cretu)
Love – Devotion
Feeling – Emotion

Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart, my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence

If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself, don’t hide
Just believe in destiny

Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up, and use the chance
To return to innocence

That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence.

I Love You … I’ll Kill You (Cretu/Fairstein)
I see love, I can see passion
I feel danger, I feel obsession
Don’t play games with the ones who love you
Cause I hear a voice who says: I love you … I’ll kill you

Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room…
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room… (Bring it back, psychopath, bring it back, psychopath)
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room…
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room… (Bring it back, psychopath, bring it back, psychopath)

Look into the mirror of your soul
Love and hate are one in all
Sacrifice turns to revenge and believe me
You’ll see the face who’ll say: I love you … I’ll kill you
But I’ll love you forever

Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room…
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room… (Bring it back, psychopath, bring it back, psychopath)
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room…
Loneliness, I feel loneliness in my room… (Bring it back, psychopath, bring it back, psychopath)

Silent Warrior (Cretu)
Long ago, for many years
White men came in the name of GOD.
They took their land, they took their lives
A new age has just begun.

They lost their GODS, they lost their smile
They cried for help for the last time.
Liberty was turning into chains
But all the white men said: That’s the cross of changes.

In the name of GOD – the fight for gold
These were the changes.
Tell me – is right – in the name of GOD
These kind of changes?

They tried to fight for liberty
Without a chance in hell, they gave up.
White men won in the name of GOD
With the cross as alibi

There’s no GOD who ever tried
To change the world in this way.
But for the ones who abuse His name
There’ll be no chance to escape on judgement day.

In the name of GOD – the fight for gold
These were the changes.
Tell me – is it right – in the name of GOD
These kind of changes?

Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Oh the white men said: That’s the cross of changes?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
In the name of GOD – these kind of changes.

The Dream of the Dolphin (Cretu/Fairstein)
In every colour there’s the light
In every stone there sleeps a crystal.
Remember the Shaman, when he used to say:
‘Man is the dream of the dolphin.’

Age of Loneliness (Carly’s Song) (Cretu)
Tosonguyn oroygoor toosrood

Carly don’t be sad
Life is crazy, life is mad
Don’t be afraid

Carly don’t be sad
That’s your destiny, the only chance
Take it, take it in your hands

Carly don’t be sad

Life is crazy, life is mad

Out from the Deep (Cretu)
We came out from the deep
To learn to love, to learn how to live
We came out from the deep
To avoid the mistakes we made
That’s why we are here!
That’s why we are here!
That’s why we are here.

We came out from the deep
To help and to understand, but not to kill
It takes many lives till we succeed
To clear the debts of many hundred years
That’s why we are here!
That’s why we are here!
That’s why we are here.

The CROSS of Changes (Cretu)
If you understand or if you don’t
If you believe or if you doubt

There’s a universal justice
And the eyes of truth
Are always watching you.

Album title Le Roi Est Mort, VIVE Le Roi!
Le Roi est Mort, Vive le Roi! (Cretu)

X Ray Delta 1, this is Mission Control. Roger you are one niner-three zero.

Things are changing
But nothing changes
And still there are changes
Le roi est mort, vive le roi!

Morphing Thru Time (Cretu)
Earth. A biosphere. A complex, subtly-balanced life support system.

… et turtur nidum, ubi reponat pullos suos. Altaria tua Domine virtutum, Rex meus, et Deus meus.

We are floating over the line
Let us follow our mind
All of our lives we’ll wait for the answer
And the question is: Why?

If we’re following our minds
We can glide into light
No one knows if there’ll be an answer
While we’re morphing thru time.

We are floating over the line
Let us follow our mind
All of our lives we’ll wait for the answer
And the question is: Why?

We’re just travellers
In endless space

If we’re following our minds
We can glide into light
No one knows if there’ll be an answer
While we’re morphing thru time.

Third of its Kind (Cretu)
The first is the father
The second is the mother
And the third is the child.

Beyond the Invisible (Cretu/Fairstein)
I look into the mirror
See myself, I’m over me
I need space for my desires
Have to dive into my fantasies

I know as soon as I’ll arrive
Everything is possible …
Cause no one has to hide
Beyond the invisible

Sajaja brammani totari ta, raitata raitata, radu ridu raitata, rota.

Close your eyes …
Just feel and realize
It is real and not a dream
I’m in you and you’re in me

It is time
To break the chains of life
If you follow you will see
What’s beyond reality

Ne irascaris Domine, ne ultra memineris iniquitatis; ecce civitas Sancti facta est deserta; Sion deserta facta est; Ierusalem desolata est; domus sanctificationis tuae et gloriae tuae.

Close your eyes …
Just feel and realize
It is real and not a dream
I’m in you and you’re in me

It is time
To break the chains of life
If you follow you will see
What’s beyond reality

Close your eyes …
Just feel and realize
It is real and not a dream
I’m in you and you’re in me

It is time
To break the chains of life
If you follow you will see
What’s beyond reality

Why! … (Cretu)
I was childish and unfair
To you, my only friend
I regret, but now it’s too late

I can’t show you anymore
The things I’ve learned from you
Cause life just took you away

And I’m asking why! …
And I’m asking why! …
Nobody gives an answer
I’m just asking why

But someday we’ll meet again
And I’ll ask you

And I’ll ask you why! …
Why it has to be like this
I’m asking you why
Please give me an answer

Many years and stupid fights
Till we accept to see
How it was and it’ll always be

Why it has to be like this
Why we don’t realize
Quare obdormis, Domine?
Why we’re too blind to see the one
Who’s always on our side

And I’m asking why! …
And I’m asking why! …
Nobody gives an answer
I’m just asking why

Just tell me why! …
Why it has to be like this
That the good ones disappear
I’m asking you why

And I’m asking why! …
And I’m asking why! …
Nobody gives an answer
I’m just asking why

And I’m asking why! …

Shadows in Silence (Cretu)

The Child in Us (Cretu)
prasanna vadanaaM saubhaagyadaaM bhaagyadaaM hastaabhyaaM abhayapradaaM maNigaNair-naanaavidhair-bhuushhitaaM

Puer natus est nobis, et filius datus est nobis; cujus emperium super humerum …

Ar khuvcheen unaga

Some day you came
And I knew you were the one
You were the rain, you were the sun
But I needed both, cause I needed you

You were the one
I was dreaming of all my life
When it is dark you are my light
But don’t forget who’s always our guide
It is the child in us.

T.N.T. for the Brain (Cretu)
Smell your skin
Feel your breath
You on my side
I couldn’t resist

I hope I’ll understand some day
What’s the meaning of this crazy game?
It is real and pure
T.N.T. for the brain

If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play

T.N.T. for the brain
Don’t be scared, and have no fear
I will show you what it means

If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play

T.N.T. for the brain
What you feel is insane
It is love and not a game
T.N.T. for the brain

Almost Full Moon(Cretu)
(instrumental)

The Roundabout (Cretu/Fairstein)
Life is a wheel of changes
But changes are life
And someday we will have to say goodbye
But our spirit will survive

Love is phasing, love is moving
To the rhythm of your sight
In the darkness I get closer
To the crossing point of light

Reason is lasting, passion is living
And dying is teaching us how to live.

Prism of Life (Cretu/Fairstein)
I am hunted by the future
Will the future be my past?
Or is time a fade-out picture
Of my everlasting cast?

Love is phasing, love is moving
To the rhythm of your sight
… I get closer
To the crossing point of light.

Sanctus, Sanctus Dominus. Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt calie et terra gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis. Benedictus …

Let us try to live our lost illusions
They’re the sun at night
If we don’t, we’ll never taste
The spice of life

And when it seems that we’re in a dead-end street
There’s no reason to cry
Cause we have a helping hand who’s always aside
Forever light

There’s no teacher
Who can teach anything new
He can just help us to remember
The things we always knew.

Push the Limits (Cretu/Gad)
Basic instincts, social life
Paradoxes side by side

Don’t submit to stupid rules
Be yourself and not a fool.
Don’t accept average habits
Open your heart and push the limits.

Open your heart and push the limits
Open your heart and push the limits

Gravity of Love (Cretu)
O Fortuna,
velut Luna
O Fortuna,
velut Luna

Turn around and smell what you don’t see
Close your eyes … it is so clear
Here’s the mirror, behind there is a screen
On both ways you can get in

Don’t think twice before you listen to your heart
Follow the trace for a new start

What you need and everything you’ll feel
Is just a question of the deal
In the eye of storm you’ll see a lonely dove
The experience of survival is the key
To the gravity of love.

O Fortuna,
velut Luna

THE PATH OF EXCESS
LEADS TO THE TOWER OF WISDOM
THE PATH OF EXCESS
LEADS TO THE TOWER OF WISDOM

Try to think about it …
That’s the chance to live your life and discover
What it is, what’s the gravity of love

O Fortuna,
velut Luna

Look around just people, can you hear their voice
Find the one who’ll guide you to the limits of your choice

But if you’re in the eye of storm
Just think of the lonely dove
The experience of survival is the key
To the gravity of love.
O Fortuna
velut luna
O Fortuna,
velut luna
O Fortuna

Je suis a toi

Je ne dors plus
Je suis folle, je m’abandonne
Je ne dors plus
Je suis a toi

Je ne dors plus
Je suis folle, je m’abandonne
Je ne dors plus
Je suis a toi

The eternal flame will always burn
Feel – understand – and learn

Modern Crusaders (Cretu)
Don’t look back, the time has come
All the pain turns into love
We’re not submissive, we’re not aggressive
But they think we can’t defend

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power to face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights

They’re accusing, like always without knowing
What is just fiction or what is the truth
They have no mission, they have no passion
But they dare to tell us what’s bad and what’s good!

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We are the power who’ll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights

est affectus
et defectus
semper in angaria
quod per sortem
sternit fortem,
mecum omnes plangite!

nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We are the power who’ll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive!

Traces (Light and Weight) (Cretu/Gad)
(instrumental)

The Screen Behind The Mirror (Cretu)
Here’s the mirror
Behind there is a screen
Turn around
On both ways you can get in
The experience of survival

Look around just people, can you hear their voice
Find the one who’ll guide you to the limits of your choice
The experience of survival

Try to think about it …
That’s the chance to live your life and discover
Try to think about it
The experience of survival
The experience …

The experience of survival
The experience …

Endless Quest (Cretu)
(instrumental)

Camera Obscura (Cretu)
(in reverse mode)
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights
Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power …

We’re not submissive, we’re not aggressive
But they think …
Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power …

Sors salutis
et virtutis
michi nunc contraria
Hac in hora
sine nora
cordum pulsum tangite;
quod per sortem
sternit fortem,
mecum omnes plangite!

Between Mind & Heart (Cretu)
It’s hard to find the balance when you are in love.
You’re lost in the middle cause you have to decide
between mind & heart.
Between mind & heart.

HEART is the engine of your body but BRAIN is the engine of life.
Between mind & heart

HEART is the engine of your body but BRAIN is the engine of life.
Between mind & heart
Between mind & heart

Between mind & heart

Silence Must Be Heart (Cretu/Gad)
Look into the other’s eyes, many frustrations
Read between the lines, no words just vibrations
Don’t ignore hidden desires
Pay attention, you’re playing with fire

Silence must be heard
Noise should be observed
The time has come to learn, that silence …
… silence must be heard
Or diamonds will burn, friendly cards will turn
Cause silence has the right to be heard

People talk too much for what they have to say
Words without a meaning, just fading away
Silence must be heard
Noise should be observed
The time has come to learn, that silence …
… silence must be heard
Or diamonds will burn, friendly cards will turn
Cause silence has the right to be heard

Silence must be heard
Silence must be heard
Noise should be observed
Silence must be heard
Silence must be heard
Noise should be observed

Silence …
Silence … must be heard.

I will post Voyageur lyrics and every song description when I get time😉
