As the years pass by before my face [totus desiderabilis] As wars rage before me Finding myself in these last days of existence This parasite inside me I forced it out In the darkness of the storm [Iesu, Rex amirabilis] Lies an evil But it's me
Where did we get this bit of information? I hear something slightly different.

Iesu, Rex amirabilis
I still remember the world From the eyes of a child Slowly those feelings Were clouded by what I know now
0:58 - 1:05
Where has my heart gone (gone) An uneven trade for the real world Oh I, I want to go back to Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all
1:30 - 1:35
I still remember the sun Always warm on my back (Ooohhh) Somehow it seems colder now
Where has my heart gone (gone) Trapped in the eyes of a stranger Oh I, I want to go back to Believing in everything
Iesu, Rex admirabilis, Et triumphator nobilis, Dulcedo ineffabilis, ineffabilis, totus desiderabilis.
"As the days pass by, Before my face, (totus desiderabilis) As wars rage, Before me, Finding myself, In these last days of existence, This parasite inside me, I forced it out, In the darkness of the storm, (Iesu, Rex amirabilis) Lies an evil, But it's me."
3:28 - 3:39
Where has my heart gone (gone) An uneven trade for the real world Oh I, I want to go back to Believing in everything
Oh where, where has my heart gone Trapped in the eyes if a stranger Oh I, I want to go back to Believing in everything
4:35 - 4:41
I still remember

Iesu, Rex amirabilis

Some Things To Think About/Debate Over
-This song was NOT played live in Birmingham NEC, UK in 2004. For some reason, there was an EvRumor that it was.
-Suvi Petrajajvri, Sara Moore, Catherine Harris and Samantha Strong are the vocal ensemble on this song.
-If you've ever wondered what the Latin is, wonder no more:
- In 'Field Of Innocence', there is a Catholic Latin verse from "Iesu, Dulcis Memoria", which says: "Iesu, Rex admirabilis, et triumphator nobilis, dulcedo ineffabilis, totus desiderabilis", which translates as: "O Jesus, King most wonderful! Thou Conqueror renowned, thou sweetness most ineffable, in whom all joys are found". "Iesu, Rex Admirabilis" is part of the hymn "Iesu, Dulcis Memoria" which is attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153). This hymn was used at Matins for the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus, which was celebrated on the Sunday between the Circumcision and Epiphany, or failing such a Sunday, on January 2. In the liturgical revisions of Vatican II, the feast was deleted, though a votive Mass to the Holy Name of Jesus had been retained for devotional use. With the release of the revised Roman Missal in March 2002, the feast was restored as an optional memorial on January 3.
It is part of a Palestrina called Iesu, Rex Admirabilis. In the arrangement in the song, there is some overlapping singing and the pronunciations are based off of Catholic Latin and not classical. In addition, words are blended together to sound more ethereal.
Yeah, it's part of a Latin hymn called "Iesu, Dulcis Memoria."
IESU, Rex admirabilis et triumphator nobilis, dulcedo ineffabilis, totus desiderabilis.
Quando cor nostrum visitas, tunc lucet ei veritas, mundi vilescit vanitas, et intus fervet caritas.
-The intro to this song is a sped up version of the song "Demise."
Demise, the third and final part of Eternal, when listened to in fast foreward (easiest in Quicktime Player) you can hear is the intro to Field's of Innocence. This doesn't work in WMP. Just thought it was something cool...
THANKS to DoubleA for the lyrics and the videos are from FallenEvArmy!
Only song from Origin I like! Makes the others sound like raw teenage angst freshly oozing from a pimple the night of the prom.... It isn't perfect, far from it, but dem chords in the chorus are flawless.
