​Thule

This song is by Theatres des Vampires and appears on the album The Vampire Chronicles (1999).

(Words taken from "Dreamland", by Edgar Allan Poe, and last sentence taken from "Dracula", by Bram Stoker)

"By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached this lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule,
From a wild weired clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of SPACE, out of TIME.

By the dismal tarns and pools
Where dwell the Vampires,
By each spot the most unholy,
In each nook the most melancholy;
There the traveller meets aghast
Sheeted memories of the past,
Shrouded forms that start and sigh
As they pass the wanderer by.

By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have wandered home but newly
From this ultimate dim Thule."

"For the dead travel fast."
