On the edge of life I lay So high afar Falling over Upon the distance of another day Soaring stronger Rebuilding the fields of hope that failed Rememberance, defining the living we'll stare Forever perceiving the limitless waves One shadeless night for another day Riding on the signs Flashback of their call We are under way Wandering within storms Before the sunrise, before the dawn will evade Striving on this side for another day Far beyond their core we are not the same We know the way We share the same Breath of Life Recalling their cold On our way to behold a new strain Feel the shimmer rays
3.
Within the circles of euphoria The signs are moving over and over Burried are the seeds of utopia Blurred are the fates of our night Forlorn fields a new dawn will rise Burning fully, reaching closer Fallen all the way Reaching the outside Chasing the line Freeing our minds Achieving the stream of a new day Reading the sight Riding our path Bringing life to a new state
4.
Infinity 03:12
Wherever hope fades, we'll embrace it with strength Still the future is ours to regain Whoever shall drain the power of your will Remain on the shores of tomorrow's fate Our reign will erase their trails Erase all their trails Across the distance Relieving from our pathway within this maze Above the oceans searching for an answer to be displayed We dive ablaze Infinity will lead our way Into the flames of a new day Fields of psychic waves feed our dreams With the seeds of our veil Infinity will be our name Revealing projections of all beings (Revealing perceptions of all beings?) Hollow forces as our destiny Reaching a new tale So different is this light beyond Where refractions seem to cast a shine on their own Infinity will lead our way Into the flames of a new day Fields of psychic waves feed our dreams With the seeds of our veil Infinity will be our name Revealing perceptions of all that remains Hollow forces as our destiny Reaching a new tale
5.
Believing the reason Forgetting the truth Unleashing the after Together under Concealed forever Drown in the distance These overwhelming reflections unknown We see the rythm get through Within a burning thunder Reveals the magic of their ruins We feel the power all on us Down in through the Ancient world This is where we all sink On the outer shores Reaching encounters We are the ones Dwelling faceless Within a burning thunder Gathering still while I stand One last time Released unsunken Within the dreams of solace Dawn erased our daylight rays One more trail Reborn we enter Behind this silence where life soars To relive our healing All as I Behind this silence where life soars To relive our healing Bound by time
6.
Dreams Apart 04:41
Oblivion upon us Delirium breaking through the flaw Lost into the abyss Held within nocturnal laws We aim to set free Gathering our will Deepening our might Hope left burning Consuming our mind Incinerating what we all defined Rebuilding the stream Revealing who we are Obliterating all the lives we lied Refuting the dream Revealing who we are Everdrifting away Dreams apart Revealing who we are

Faceless 04:59
Right when the winds end howling Revealing the maze Unfolding a realm born ablaze Drilling through the winter's gloom Before this dull bright mist covers me Is insanity calling me ? Growing under relentless fall I see their faces Receeding in dismay When the cold seems to fade Where the storm yet remains Hidden within, risen as one Releasing the I From this distance I found you From this distance I sense the beats of your heart Still frozen into the veil, untied to time Faceless yet in flames Igniting eyes of the tide Dwelling through the chimera Staring at the stream of life Shapes of the Living Marching towards our new dawn Reaching the shores of tomorrow Where there's nothing left of us Nothing left Merging with our fate, faceless Faces of Flames
9.
Arise 02:58
Drill to ascend Reveal the unknown We're free beyond death This will breeds tomorrow's fall We storm our reign Haunting from beyond Feed the unveiled Inhaling from the core, find our pulse Drowning until the end Forlorn state of mind Burning deep within Seeking the wind that binds Above the abyss Thriving through our time Beside the solace Yearning for a sign We will arise For the age to come We'll leave these rays for another rain We'll lead the streams of tomorrow's fall Forever following the realm defining our core Motionless fates marching to our call Relieving within the Seas that Drown
10.
Reborn 04:58
With this rain, they called me Repulsing their streams right onto my way These fields are turning to grey Inside my own veins These sights of illusion Overwhelm the state of mind we were in Reaching the borders for another journey to find These drops of deliverance Lead our wings, lead our might To new horizons Transcending far away Reaching to collide Somewhere behind, somewhere tomorrow On the edge of delusion Somehow the will flows We feel the afterglow This is the end of all things, of all time All what's left has fallen, turned to dust Solar dreams ignited Far beyond Solar fields enlightened Drifting to the shores ablaze We are the ones We are the ones who dream Lost within, drowning inside Stuck in this life falling appart Reborn, unbind Stuck in this realm, dreaming of life
11.
The place we live in The change we drain on again Persue the becoming Behold the tale that they all sustain I've been looking through me Senseless, they would prevent the wake Is this the end of our fate Or a newborn dawn Is this the end of our faith On the tide of another fall I whish I could remain stronger Where the tide is gone I whish I could wander deeper I dive, bound to the core I soar, burning further Perceiving at last the light that shines inside of us I dive, bound to the core I soar, burning further Perceiving at last the light that shines inside of us
12.
Nothingness from this place of no return These are the remnants of a realm left forgotten in demise The days unread, fading all memories from above (far above) Merging the sides of another world Nothing left of me This prison falls for a last breath Now I understand, now I am One with Them Towards these halls of Life I dwell within Reaching the fields of forsaken knowledge Breaching through the secrets of Time Breaching the streams of Time We were the same, sharing the seeds of a newborn sun Circular scriptures written on the visions of Past We strove the same We wandered alike through the Seas of Flames Last pieces of fear Restraining our mind in our inner Self Into this maze of ruins Feeding the air of horizons red Feeling the edge of Life, of Another Self Beneath the waves, away from this tide Believing our fate was the link to a lightless star Deep within lies our realm of a distant sign Leading our Self burning through the night We'll breach our lifeless pain Leaving all fears behind We'll reach the Seas of Flames Unleashing the dream once left to die
