01. On Ancient Ground

On this ground, where ancient spirits once were summoned
It's said to hold the way to salvation

Demanding chaos, for the unknown times ahead
Where the eldest gathered for sights of the future
Preparing the ritual

...sacrifice ...sacrifice ...sacrifice ...sacrifice
How can they resist these gifts that we give
Our most valuable possesion
Behind masked eyes, material claims
Was not a price high enough for this ...sacrifice

In search for better times, adorn gifts from virgin hands
Should be the price to the angelic hoast

Around center stone, they all made the final choice
Prosperity in exchange for blood

On ancient ground - They paid the price
On ancient ground - They paid the price

Sacrificial rites, blueprint for eternal life
As the phenom would gather the clouds

Pleasure the Gods, then harvest salvation
Awaiting the feast of the Hunter's Moon

On ancient ground - They paid the price
On ancient ground - Awaiting the harvest

As the eldest rise, they gathered by
Giving their pray to the ancient ground
A sacrifice, for better times
In order to please the ancient ground
Most precious gifts, they could ever give
To the feast of Gods on ancient ground
They gazed in awe, while soil sucked dry
As the impassive stonehead, demanded more!

Circle of stones, in perfect allingments with the stars
With a gift of life, a passage to the otherworld

Within the enclosure, shines the eye on the altar stone
An instrument to read the signs of the moon
Preparing ritual

...sacrifice ...sacrifice ...sacrifice ...sacrifice
How can they resist these gifts that we give
Our most valuable possesion
Behind masked eyes, material claims
Was not a price high enough for this ...sacrifice

On ancient ground - They paid the price
On ancient ground - Awaiting the harvest

...as the impassive stonehead, demanded more!

...sacrifice ...sacrifice ...sacrifice ...sacrifice


02. The Abandoned One

Days are passing, weeks are counted
Two weeks, four weeks, six weeks gone
Where am I now, I'm missing home
Behind locked doors they await my plea
Do they all see through me, do they all know?

I'm sending this message to all
Hoping sometime it will reach a shore
Someone to find, bring back hope
I will wait - cold and forlorn

Does it matter where we are
In an orphan home, or in a mansion of gold
All these people with no place to call home
Too bad no one cares
Who decides where the journey starts

A tidal wave will bring me safe away
Until I reach a distant shore
I've been away for a long time now
No one is waiting for me I know
Time will erase all my darkest dreams
I'm still counting days

I'm sending this message to all
Hoping sometime it will reach a shore
Someone to find, bring back hope
I will wait - cold and forlorn

Does it matter where we are
In an orphan home, or in a mansion of gold
All these people with no place to call home
Too bad no one cares
Who decides where the journey starts

Days are passing, weeks are counted
Two weeks, four weeks, six weeks gone
Where am I now, I'm missing home
Behind locked doors they await my plea
Do they all see through me, do they all know?
No one is waiting for me, I know...

It's all going to get better now
Fool's paradise - the promised fields
Thinking positive, not the opposite
After the tide, a new dawn will rise

It's all going to get better now
The beholder comes, to clear my head
Thinking positive, not the opposite
Six feet under, the end to it all will come

I'm sending this message to all
Hoping sometime it will reach a shore
Someone to find, bring back hope
I will wait - cold and forlorn

Does it matter where we are
In an orphan home, or in a mansion of gold
All these people with no place to call home
Too bad no one cares
Who decides where the journey starts


03. Becoming Of Man

In a capsule it came
Bellicose as it is
It infected the system
To build a new day

Silently it resists
Waiting as an embryo
The perfect moment to infect
To build it up more superior
A superior becoming

Inside this void it feeds
A conception of the ideal structure
Contained in the flesh
A fountainhead of the rise

Hear my becoming
For I will be...
Hear my becoming
For I will be...

A mutant of the new world
A mutant of the new world
A mutant of the new world
A mutant of the new world

On this depraved orb I'm wandering
I see others like me
Have we all been transformed?
By this strange lunar halo

No! - The carrier now I am
No! - Of this unearthly syndrome

The carrier now I am
Of this unearthly syndrome
That tears my body down
To recreate the master plan

As I wander the fields of abode
A grey and old man I've become
The birds won't sing anymore
To fragments of dust I dissolve
Crumble to dust
Becoming of man

Hear my becoming
For I will be...
Hear my becoming
For I will be...

A mutant of the new world
A mutant of the new world
A mutant of the new world
A mutant of the new world

On this depraved orb I'm wandering
I see others like me
Have we all been transformed?
By this strange lunar halo

On this hideous orb I'm wandering
I see others like me
Have we all been transformed?
By this strange lunar halo

No! - The carrier now I am
No! - Of this unearthly syndrome

Locked down as in the capsule it came
All traces of life has been erased
In frozen sleep I seek forgiveness
For my sins have not been paid

Will
I
Ever
Be
Reborn?


04. Payment Of Existence

Do you think they could have a secret agenda
An iron hand over the last remains of humanity
The final breath of life, allusions of the end
Are we all part of this scheme?
Another coin in payment for your soul
Another bone in the lifegiving soil

Reincarnated - as spawns of the darkness

All we crave to passes will leave a hole into deep
As payment to exist they lost their soul

Bones buried beneath
We are ... slaves of creation
Reincarnated, a revolution
We are ... merged into perfect form
Regeneration came with a steep price

Into a realm of wealth and comfort
How can we even resist this claim
A manifestation of a perfect empire (your kingdom come)
Where pain and disgrace are absent

Do you think they could have a secret agenda
Protect the nation, with hidden intentions, for reasons why?
One day when the devil calls your name
And when he does you will think of me
Another coin in payment for your soul
Another bone in the lifegiving soil

As modern Gods claim sacrifice
The flames will feed on the doomed
Vested interest controls the flow
Transaction on the wire

All we crave to passes will leave a hole into deep
As payment to exist they lost their soul

Bones buried beneath
We are ... merged into perfect form
Regeneration came with a steep price

Reincarnated - as spawns of the darkness

Reincarnated ...
... Regeneration
Reincarnated ...
... Regeneration


05. Through The Labyrinth Of Years

Along the fragile edge of darkness
Down to chaos seething below
Rise in the grace of moonlight
The stranger came in the night

I've been waiting for so long now...

Hungry as the sea
Turbulent as the storm
Deepest eyes of mystery shine
A guiding light sent for me

I've been a trader of so much pain
Now a harvester of life

All are born as barren souls
To a life free of all sins
A place where evil awaits for those
The labyrinth of years must go

Time has come to cleanse the soul
Our home far behind the sun
A place to plant the eternal seed
As fragile as roses you'll grow

I've been lower than so called Hell
Been used, and I've been scorned
I used to count myself as one
Into million stars I've become

I've been a trader of so much pain
Now a harvester of life

Time has come to cleanse the soul
Our home far behind the sun
A place to plant the eternal seed
So fragile...

Time has come to cleanse the soul
Our home far behind the sun
A place to plant the eternal seed
As fragile as roses you'll grow

Your shhip can never sail
Without a proper wind in its sails
This wind you now will feel
Coming strong
And it will never leave you
Abandoned ashore
As long as my name remains
There will always be a safe port of call
There will always be a safe port of call

All are born as barren souls
To a life free of all sins
A place where evil awaits for those
The labyrinth of years must go

Time has come to cleanse the soul
Our home far behind the sun
A place to plant the eternal seed
So fragile...

Time has come to cleanse the soul
Our home far behind the sun
A place to plant the eternal seed
As fragile as roses you'll grow

You'll grow...

I've been a trader of so much pain
I've been waiting for so long now
I've been a trader of so much pain
Now a harvester of life


06. Raven's Cry

Last night I had a dream
About the existence to it all
Vague visions in the black of night
Made by shiver, made me reconsider

That night I had a dream
About a raven so black and glimmer
It came to me in the dead of night
The raven's cry, a cold, soulful need

In the black of the night
The raven of darkness
In the black of the night
Then it all faded away

I fear I woke, so many thoughts
What we inherit, when will we perish
Need to change for those who come
Our existence, the final extinction
The final extinction

Lost a loved one, we know time will come
Gave birth to my own special one
Pick a number, stay in line
I'll give you strength, for you to light the way

In the black of the night
The raven of darkness
In the black of the night
Unfledged but still divine

We all know there is a price to pay
Time will come where it all will fail
A shelter in Heaven for those who pray?
Birth, life, and then will come death!

Eyes of silver reflect the last breath
I see generations fall
Admire it now before the last remains fade
We will cause human's empire to fall
Empire to fall!

Born - sanctuary denied
Forlorn - mesmerized in fear

Behold the raven's cry
Black wings bringer of pain
Behold the raven's cry
Through its silver eyes I saw the fall

In the black of the night
The raven of darkness
In the black of the night
The raven of darkness
In the black of the night
Hear the raven's cry


07. Unpredictables Of Life

Two leafs linked by blood
Drifting away from the tree
Will they ever be able to
Take control of their own existence

With different prosperity
They enter the world alone
Equal but so unlike
Leaving home in their own direction

Stripped down to the concrete
Wet, cold and alone
Neon lights, addicted
Definition of home... so material

Some are born into wealth and prosperity
All you need, for riding "the gravy train"
Struck by power
Pouring another liquid fire

As second fly a stom arise
In this unpredictable life
Set in control of your inner demons
In memories vague, loosing fate
In this unpredictable life
Set in control of your inner demons
Act of fate

Do you think I care?
It has always been Me, Myself and I
Even a stray dog will be my friend
Before I reach your level

Don't put me down, please leave me alone
We were both born with nothing
Why am I the family's black sheep

Stripped down to the concrete
Wet, cold and alone
Neon lights, addicted
We are all...

Material - Scorn
Material - Hate
Material - Waste
Material - World
Material - Terror
Material - Pain

How can it be, I want to conceive
Don't give my sympathy, ignore me
Worthless life, while someone sits up high
Don't moralize, ignore me rather

Stripped down to the concrete
Wet, cold and alone
Neon lights, addicted
Definition of home... so material

Some are brought into life as society's waste
A cess-pool of trash that we all tend to forget
Struck by the power
Pouring another liquid fire

As second fly a stom arise
In this unpredictable life
Set in control of your inner demons
In memories vague, loosing fate
In this unpredictable life
Set in control of your inner demons

As second fly a stom arise
In this unpredictable life
Set in control of your inner demons
In memories vague, loosing fate
In this unpredictable life
Set in control of your inner demons
Act of fate

Material - Scorn
Material - Hate
Material - Waste
Material - World
Material - Terror
Material - Pain


08. Stone Carved Eyes

Monuments, rise upon arrival
Bizzare theories
Questions and controversies remain
Left clues to their origin in the stones
Did isolation create this enigma?

Anyone who tries to break the code
Will have to sacrifice their precious life
We can not make our holy God cry
Fire will flood from his mouth on the hill

Anyone who tries to break the code
Will have to sacrifice their precious life
We can not make our holy God cry
Fire will flood from his mouth on the hill

Paradise, surrounded by an endless blue
Alone in this world
Waiting for salvation to come
Outcasts, for reason still unknown
Voyagers, found it empty and abandoned

Anyone who tries to break the code
Will have to sacrifice their precious life
We can not make our holy God cry
Fire will flood from his mouth on the hill

Any one who tries to break the code
Will have to sacrifice
Their one chance in life

And when the darkness falls on shores
Olden rites from a secret lore
Stone carved eyes leaves a shadow mark
Deep in these eyes reads a prophecy

A lost continent of liquifying stone
Burned through the crust
And erupted into the Earth

A lifeform unknown
Looking out on the coming wave
Waiting for what to come
Mold the statue of pure fear obsession

Afraid of what to come, mold the statue
Afraid of what to come, mold the statue
So observe meant to please the Gods

Afraid of what to come, mold the statue
So obscure meant to please the Gods
... The Gods

And when the darkness falls on shores
Olden rites from a secret lore
Stone carved eyes leaves a shadow mark
Deep in these eyes reads a prophecy

Moon dance in the skyline
Where the oceans meet
Trigger the mind of the staring stone eyes

A lifeform unknown
Looking out on the coming wave
Waiting for what to come
Mold the statue so pure

A lifeform unknown
Looking out on the coming wave
Waiting for what to come
Mold the statue of pure fear obsession

And when the darkness falls on shores
Olden rites from a secret lore
Stone carved eyes leaves a shadow mark
Deep in these eyes reads a prophecy

A view of reason
Rotation of the sun
To fulfill their God's prophecy
Mold the statue of pure fear obsession
Disappearing in the vast-seas
Wiped away by a tidal wave?
And when the last tree went down
They left a mark for the future to find

Afraid of what to come, mold the statue
So obscure meant to please the Gods

Is this a clue to the modern race
Who left this mark
Of fear in cold stone...
