Dissonance 03:51
No sign of humanity In these evil might Unconscious minds possessed by hate Our leaders are baffled blinds Translucent oligarchy exempt from all kind of mercy A compromise of harshness and recklessness Justice as part of their lies Deicide and tyranny are our common shrine We cannot sustain any more of this Bound in allegiance to drown, they rule like a plague Stuck in seeds of desire Hypnotized by broadcasting, false claims Mesmerized by dull ideals made of grey Scenes of crowd to pretend we're dwelling democracy Synthesized self-heralded government No sign of humanity In these evil might Unconscious minds possessed by hate This is the time to arise The seasons are losing their sense In faceless rhyme Crimes are invading each place From north to south it feels the same Our sun falls behind clouds of haze The millennium is casting its night So will their tidal reign Scheme of deny, screams of a million who rise Our march is on its way, our march yells side by side Reunited in rawness In the trail of morale and faith Dreaming of hope for Mankind We will reap your empire of pain Repeal your reliance on war and gain We will raze your design And erase your demise Hear the sound of dawning Hypnotized by broadcasting, false claims Mesmerized by dull ideals made of grey Scenes of crowd to pretend we're dwelling democracy Synthesized self-heralded government

Everblaze 04:31
Feel the blaze afar Open your mind Reobtain what you once were Tear your hate apart Untrust your might Unleash your abiding rays Drown me out Bring me down Free us all, burn us into the moonlight Be our reign of flames Blow me out Take me down Only yourself can save us from blinding Be our day, our new life Retrieve the sense of our realm Arise, stream our trail Revive the source of tomorrow Spin the rail of our soul Behold the dreams of the afterglow On the shores of reliance Lies a brighter state of slumber Across the veil of our own existence Alive yet silent Rain flows in our veins Seething in the heart Feel the blaze afar Open your mind Reobtain what you once were Tear your hate apart Untrust your might Unleash your abiding rays

On Your Own 04:41
Some pray to appease desires Imploring some mercy Others simply cease to hope And drown in false control To feel the messiah Shall not make you cross the sign So fierce, so relentless But it shall not raise you out Purity is in yourself Don't seek it, don't trust their lies Believe in your sense, not their lines This flame that burns in your heart The answer is in yourself Don't dream it, don't close your mind Live on your own On your own, follow the tracks you long Don't care where the others go On your side, create your own defiance Answer the call Find the stream, find your own way All alone Wherever glooms are blowing Step beyond Underneath tomorrow, lies your core Hear the call Align the seeds of your strain On your own On your own, follow the tracks you long Don't care where the others go On your side, create your own defiance Answer the call Purity is in yourself Don't seek it, don't trust their lies Believe in your sense, not their lines This flame that burns in your heart The answer is in yourself Don't dream it, don't close your mind Live on your own Some pray to appease desires Imploring some mercy Others simply cease to hope And drown in false control To feel the messiah Shall not make you cross the sign So fierce and relentless Yet you shall not raise the night

Timeless 03:35
On the reach of the night Beyond your sense On the stream of your mind Your Kind we're watching Your wars lead you to a sure destruction You're the seeds of your own demise Within yourselves Can't you see your homeworld in fire? Reason shall rise Once you soar in its sunset Your prison could fall apart Grey won't drown Heal the sane, cherish the sharing The moving abides to thrive Where timeless falls in motion, Standing life and dawn Become the sons of instant Untie your soul On the reach of night Beyond your sense On the stream of your mind Your Kind we're watching The closure deeply lies within yourself Come, come into the Grail Where timeless falls in motion, Standing life and dawn Become the sons of instant Unbind your soul

You decide for our fate You decide for our fall We decide to stand and disobey You determine who knows You determine who sees We decide to leave your prophecy Your embrace is a lie Your discourse, unwise You completely breath insanity Haunted by gain Controlled by your aim You're nothing more than a plague Inside of me, I now hold a way to behave Deep, inside of me I have found a stable force to behold Don't pretend to save me Your crimes are the source When you'll cloud yourself The circle will be complete Reverence, dignity Your sense of acting is gone For we are no more blind We are awakened Your cycle of disgrace No longer thrive For we are unified We are all leaders We shall take back our world And blow you out Before the dawn You define who lives, judging in silence Hidden behind luxurious dreams You crucify your fears, burning innocence Insensitive, unaware Power, influence, disease The equation lies still No matter how strong you are In the end you drown Honour, reliance, glory The fire will never decrease This is the path you engage all Your rage is inborn No place to flee us now Your once empire's drilled Your gatherings done Your gallows are on the line For we are unified We are all leaders We shall take back our world And blow you out from our ground

Reverse Dawn 04:26
The day is turning to night Burning rays drown in ashes In the skylight figures shade The prophet was right, it's the End The mountains are trembling The seas boil in rage Heavens glow crimson haze The light is starting to fade The pale erases the wounds of my mind The pulse is rising around me The waves of life drain and fuse in my heart I'm enthralled by the Reverse Dawn On my side, the sun clears to black On my veil, fire exhales Overwhelmed in serene daylight I leave wide alive On my trail, the storm is of rain Drops of freedom defining my timeline I'm gone in the strains of solace To arise On my side, the sun clears to black On my veil, fire exhales Overwhelmed in serene arrays The Gate is closing behind Morning rays burst the vastness To the skyline I remain

Mighty Wings 04:00
It's just a ball of dust Underneath my feet It rolls around the sun Doesn't mean that much to me I take a chance on the edge of life Just like all the rest I look inside and dig it out Cause there's no points for second best There's a raging fire in my heart tonight Growing higher and higher in my soul There's a raging fire in the sky tonight I want to ride on the silver dove Far into the night [Chorus] Till I make you take me On your mighty wings Make you take me On your mighty wings across the sky Take me on your mighty wings Take me on your mighty wings tonight With just a little luck A little cold blue steel I cut the night like a razor blade Till I feel the way I want to feel There's a raging fire in my heart tonight Growing higher and higher in my soul There's a raging fire in the sky tonight I want to ride on the silver dove Far into the night [Chorus] Till I make you take me On your mighty wings Make you take me On your mighty wings across the sky Take me on your mighty wings Take me on your mighty wings tonight Take me on your mighty wings Take me on your mighty wings

A pale shivering Hunter Seeds my fearsome hurt Pours in my gaze Nightmarish hate Far from Earth Lost in the Abyss Plague from Hell Sole in the Unseen Raped from Her Slight in the Mighty Far from Sun, we lurk Here Evil and myself A pain came from nowhere Feeding my inner blur Mourning in my veins Apathetic state As I dare reopen my eyes A long, thin metallic arm Descending straight towards my neck On its end stands a sharp spear That drills my skin Then inserts in my spine a frozen mist Insane situation when the hangman says: "Don't be afraid of what you can't explain." A pale calling glimmer Heals my fading nerve Maybe the end Of the Experiment For What? Strained to feel Full of void Blended with Dust of loss I wake back, somewhere near my dwelling Wishing that it was just another dream I cross my hand on my nape fleetingly Will my fingers touch a wound or a virgin skin?
12.
Scarlet stains the nightfall Bright rays, elusive Fearless power behaviors drift by my side Dream or real, it's not clear But the scare drills inside of me Outlines still my motions And drag me to the clouds An arcane source of energy stirs in my soul Is this the place where we all die Or are revived? The creatures seem to foreknow me, literally Since I was born In a psychic way we even communicate Their reasons are mine Resources depleted Forests and wildlife disentrailed Compassion disproved Somehow we lost the trail Invariably we choose to break the natural harmony We never wonder why so many cry Solitude spreads like a plague To the realm of organic strains we are parasites All we long turns grey, all around... Losing my name, purified Into the realm of a greater life Invariably we choose to break the natural harmony We never wonder why so many cry Solitude spreads like a plague To the realm of organic strains we are parasites All we long turns grey Losing my name, unified Into the realm of greater days
13.
So we part ways Turning our source and our regrets Reaving our might This tide recalls our soul down by the sea We were lonely drops in a reverse wave Pretending our life was innocent Deceived by our eyes, all we knew was pain Sinking aside This pulse in our heart should have warned us then And showed us no one was sovereign Perceiving a war like a vital state Justice was blind So we just fade Into profound glooms of cyan Where the stream binds This side covers our soul down by the sea Last signs of fire drift and bounce Behind our trail Blazing rays vanish in red glows Blown by forces unknown We dissolve Will the flows of time strand the fields of our realm? Will Ether bewitch us? Perfection's gone, but our season still stands Burnt yet alive we are When I'll join your mind in the reach of our fate Within strains of daylight Absolve your past, no reprieve shall die vain Merge, shine beyond So we remain Into dismal blooms of cyan Safe in our shroud This ride was our last impulse by the sea
