01. A Gathering Of Pilgrims

["Through a slow and painfull awakening"]

...They met on the captain's dining platform.
Seven pilgrims with different stories,
But neverless with equal main factor
- the mystery of the Chrome bladed creature
... the Beast

Each one carrying the hope of being the chosen one,
To have his wish fulfilled,
Knowing that the other six must die hoping.

All must they tell their story!


02. Filaments Of Armageddon

I travelled on through the swamplands, sailed up the river damp
To bring back the church from its state of oblivion
A mission to the land of the long gone retired tribe
The inbred people on the edge of the cleft
I crossed the lightning horrors of the burning forest
To face my unattainable holy task
A Hell alive, Armageddon, a violent energetic eruption
Of immense proportions

Domine Dirige Nos

Kept alive for eternity by this throbbing parasite
Distorting, numbing, mind reducing - Eternal life through this horrid growth

"Saying mass in my life's work - the awe striking chapel
- sweet communion, I'm at inner peace"
... to drive out this parasite by self inflicted non-lethal pain...
"I am eternal, immortal"
...I'm swirling in a vortex of the deepest agony...
...offered an eternity of mindless life...

I saw the wonder of a giant church carved into the moutainside
A descending path into the mystery of the labyrinthine worlds
Idolized and worshipped by the tribe of the short retard men
... I began praying to my God again

We walked into the tunnel mouth, eroded by elements
As darkness gave away to light brighter than thousand stars
I was embraced by the legendary avatar, (the creature of death)
In the illuminated glowing vaults

...I'll fight my immortality

Kept alive for eternity by this throbbing parasite
Distorting, numbing, mind reducing - Eternal life through this horrid growth


03. The Old Barge

Beautiful this broken town, even though it's fled by man
White doves flying in the sun, above desert sands
Where the city stood, now ruins stands

Sitting in Darkness with Tales To Tell
Arguing, drinking all night as well
The last fair or pilgrims with answers to gain
To go to the valley and meet with "The One" in vain

Drifting down the river
From the railing we stare
Journey on to the sea of grass
The old barge will take us there

Led along by mysterious crew
Bright shiny eyes and skins of blue
The last fair of pilgrims with answers to gain
To go to the valley and meet with "The One" in vain

Drifting down the river
From the railing we stare
Journey on to the sea of grass
The old barge will take us there


04. Keeper Of Time - Eternal Champion

Life as a soldier was all to easy for me - To eradicate and annihilate fit my identity
Raised as a fighting machine, to destroy the enemy threat
Suddenly and with no sense you came with the bloodshed

Sons and daughters of war, I have witnessed a creature I can't control anymore
Fell in love with a girl of the future, now talk to me, teach me... war lovers we will be!

You made a difference in the chaos I saw - You gave me a reason not to fight anymore
In between rage and sudden death - You gave me hope - you stole my breath

Brainwashed in the art of war I've got the will to fight on - All sense of humanity is a history
-long gone
Following the orders - no remorse or no fear - You appeared to me
Like a mad dream here

Then you came from a distant unknown, between dream and reality
Fighting together from time to time, now talk to me, teach me... war lovers we will be!

I met you in your past, but in my future in a meeting still to come
And listened to your whispers, you had a voice that made me numb
Your eyes blazed like jewels in the sun as you whispered in my ear
I'll take care of you my love - you've got nothing to fear

When morning came, we kept each other perfectly warm in the chilling breeze
Constantly sand or snow tore at naked walls
Your voice burred with the hint of an accent unknown
Constantly sand or snow tore at naked walls

In a time of passion I close my eyes....... And see :
Bodies burning in the solid laser light
Heat of plasma explosions as I try to survive the night
Fireballs enlarging as I lie among the dead
More dead to come as suns explode in ruby red

THE DYING WORLDS!!!

Star systems, extinct in spasms of deadly fire
Thickened air itself aflame as I can't control my desire
Seas of superheated air rise in vast pulses of flame
Blazing in mad heat - you brought a war from where you came

THE DYING WORLDS!!!


05. Cantos

In cryogenic sleep I lost my sense, I lost my soul
Experiencing craziness has made my heart turn cold
For centuries and more, I've searched my head for perfect words
I'll take my chance or live forever in a world of hurt

Impalement on a tree of thorns is definitely an option
I need the Beast to write my cantos without interruption
The trinity is split, parts roaming back through time and space
And Empathy is to be lured out of its hiding place

I'll face the pain with open mind,
Coz' otherwise I'd die inside
The perfect irony in my life
I know the answer to the future,
Now is to be solved by us
The seven pilgrims of mankind

On the verge of suicide the butchery began
And writting capabilities came back to me again
The disappearance of my muse had ceased with all the killing
The cantos only lived through all the blood the Beast was spilling
My poem bruned, destroyed in desperate screams of misery
And so, i'll find my inspiration on the shining tree

I'll face the pain with open mind,
Coz' otherwise I'd die inside
The perfect irony in my life
I know the answer to the future,
Now is to be solved by us
The seven pilgrims of mankind

"With ashes flying to the sky
I realize the reason why"


06. On A Sea Of Grass - Night

Night fell upon the pilgrims
While sailing on the sea of grass
Through the infinite horizon
The wooden ship sails by the wind to the pass

They'll journey on awaiting doom
Talling their stories in the gloom

Disrupted by his baby's crirs
...panting
The old jew carries on
...telling


07. Reversed

Come child join me, now that the whiskey
Has turned me into another man
We'll talk and we'll laugh like old times
And we'll try to understand

As I see your face, pale and terrified
It's a nightmare coming true
And believe me daughter , everyday
It's a new you I'm talking to

Old Scholar - man of wisdom
Take your daughter to Hyperion
Now, don't hesitate to come
Put a dagger into her heart
- let her spirit fly to the sun
Let her spirit fly to the sun

How my God can this be true
And why, did it happen to you
Why do I have to stand helpless by
To relive your life too

I come to find upright in bed
To remenber all the tears we have shed
Don't tell me, coz' I already know
I'll let you cry for the twentieth night in a row

I remember you smilling in the sun
I recall everything you and I have done
To relive it everyday is too hard for me
Welcome back little one

I won't hold you back
I won't stand between you and destiny
There were times when I ignored all the signs I was given
But now I have to let go and set you free


08. On A Sea Of Grass - Day

...and on they sail without water
Overwhelmed by sudden emotions
Looking at the sky (they'll see)
Luminescence from vast explosions

So we're finally leaving the ship
Haunted by the stench of death
Watching destruction sweep the sky
Everyone will lose their breath

...and on they search for the Templar
Lost from sight in a frenzied bloodbath
Setting out watch, controlling weapons
Invisible monster on a killing path

So we're finally leaving the ship
Haunted by the stench of death
Watching destruction sweep the sky
Everyone will lose their breath


09. A Long Farewell

A murder without death,just one minute of complete disconnection
Loss of aeons of time, loss of mass amount of information
Left outside the web, with 5 days unaccouted for
A millenium of non-communication

Searching across the galaxy wide for the data lost
Unknown enemies ready to strike, to kill at any cost
Penetrating core periphery, finding the old earth re-creation
Saved in a temple, as I received the implant information

Secrets hidden in lost memory - Together we'll find it, and we'll write history
Beautiful stranger, your life's a mystery - Powered by human genetics and poetry

THE SECRET OF THE LEACHING NETWORK AND U.I.:

Divided in 3, each fighting their own fight
- to gain the same purpose, to gain the same might
Solids argue that between core and humanity
- A certain level of symbiosis is necessary
The non-persistent advocate immediate extinction
- Humans are a threat to complete prediction
Extremes promote the project with obsession
- Reconstruction and retrieval for U.I. culmination

HYPERION! - The penultimate opposition
Non-subject from laws of physics and computerized prediction

Moving back in time with messages of war
The majestic valley graves so disturbing to the core

The outcome is two futures of war and Beast invasion
One's a retroactive strike from core domination

The second is a fist through time sent for core destruction
A final blow from enemies who escaped the non-persistents' extinction

I carry your child and I carry the memory of all you ever were and all you'd ever be
Ans as they take your body away, the frantic worshippers are chanting to me

Bless our Saviour - bless the tool to our forgiveness


10. At The Keep

Finally arriving at the keep
Reaching safety - the child asleep
Altars of atonement aqainst the walls
Whispering echoes in the endless halls

rough carved corridors painted blood red
Sparks of explosion from the distant bloodshed
Illuminates the sky with colours of gold
As the last story of the pilgrims unfold

... so hear the Keep - it shall reveal the traitor


12. Loveternaloveternal...

We floated on the oceans in hazy dreams of love
Living life to the full, sun blazing from above
Strangers from different worlds
Yet oh so much the same
Dearest - I'll never forget your name
...I'll always remember your name

Making love under the water
Feel the pleasure on my skin
In your eyes I saw the burning flame
Of passionate vitality to fight a sin

Shipman, my love, to hide your disgrace
That, at least, I think, you could have done for me
See me the way I was in between "our" days
Shipman - The pain shall not leave you, it stays
...The pain crushes your heart forever

Making love under the water
Feel the pleasure on my skin
In your eyes I saw the burning flame
Of passionate vitality to fight a sin

It's time for the people of the sea to meet up with their sharks

You're ageing much faster than me
...irrevocable time debt separates us

Making love under the water
Feel the pleasure on my skin
In your eyes I saw the burning flame
Of passionate vitality to fight a sin

Entering your tomb, your monument of pride
On our last reunion, I'm there but you have died
Missing your touch - the energy you give
Dearest - you're gone, but your legend will live on

Your memory will last forever

I'm crying tears that you will never see...
