The Ecstasy of Gold Lyrics

on Amazon Music

Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light

Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for father, roaming free

Fearless wretch
Insanity
He watches
Lurking beneath the sea
Great old one
Forbidden sideHe searches
Hunter of shadows is...

    Ennio Morricone's song about kicking ass and taking names. Actually, I have no idea. I don't know why I talk sometimes. But it's a great intro before Metallica hits the stage.

    uhm, those are the lyrics of "The Thing that should not be." And I feel like the Ecstasis of Gold expresses some kind of high overnatural encounter. Like between the worst, putrid, darkest, and shadest hour, a sign of a single spark is above it all. And once we see it we want to go for it. We rise breaking up from the shadows, destroying everything that gets in our way; because what's happening has risen our hopes beyond our level. Just like in "The Bad, The Good, and The Ugly" The finally find the cementary in which is the treasure. After madness, dangers, close to death encounters,attacked by savages, etc, etc. All that was finally getting to their last spark of hope, feeling downfallen. Suddenly they see the cementery in which the gold can be found,a small sign of hope has risen, but still they need to find the grave. As soon as one of them aknowledges the name of the grave, he flies off fast looking for that grave between all the thousands of tombs. All that trouble, all that happened is now fading away as he runs through the graves. He knows he will find it, he knows that everything that happened was worth it. Finally he founds the grave. As his feelings of loss have faded away. The ecstasis of Gold. The golden sign of hope has come forth to fade away any sign of darkness.
