The sun is far away
It goes in circles
Someone dies
Someone lives
In pain
It is burning
Into the thin air
Of the nature
Of a culture
On the dark side
Under the moon
The wolves gather

    Eos, in greek mythology, is the goddess of dawn. This follows up with the album theme, once again flowing throught the lyrical theme of the sun, the moon, the shadow, and all their philosophical and metaphysical meanings.

    "the sun is far away, it goes in circles": this relates to the cyclic nature of the celestial bodies, and their relative magnitudes. Although they are huge, they are really far away; yet, they come and go.

    Someone dies, someone lives: again, the cycles.

    In pain, it is burning: reference to the sun and its power

    Into the thin air: our air, fragile and human

    Of the nature, of a culture: this references the interpretation we humans consumate of the sun and the celestial bodies. Our nature and our culture adopt different interpretations of them.

    On the dark side, under the moon, the wolves gather: typical ulver, talking about wolves and moon, filling the dicotomy and duality of the sun/shadow/moon theme. Brilliant.
