01. Devils, Devils

I'm a phantom, my demeanor...facade
Broken smile speaks the truth of my soul
I am envy, I delight when you fall
I am malice, wishing ill on the world

Reflected Soul
A mirror though my eyes
Devils, Devils arise !

I am wicked with deceit in my heart
An imposter who will lie in your arms
I am selfish, operating through greed
Unrepentant in the quest of my dreams

Reflected Soul
A mirror though my eyes
Devils, Devils arise !


Reflected Soul
A mirror though my eyes
Devils, Devils arise !
Reflected Soul
A mirror though my eyes
Black hearted Devils arise !


02. Bending Time

Welcome to madness
Here inside of your mind where the soul never rests
A place where we relive the pain of regret

You feel you can reach it
If you just close your eyes you can touch all the scars
But as you get closer you grow ever far

One deep breath - cast your self to the winds of your past
As you soar through your mind
Bending time

I've often felt it
I could roll back the minutes and right every wrong
The ill that I've spoken, the hurt that I've caused

To me it's tragic
When the good in my life somehow fades from my mind
While the wounds of transgression reopen
Time after time after time

One deep breath - cast your self to the winds of your past
As you soar through your mind
Bending time.....Bending time

You can't return to times now long past
You'll never change
The sins of your past


03. From Darkness... Light

Lonely road, this twisted path that leads out of despair
Unending struggle to reconcile with grief and carry on
The will seeks to submit, the heart to bleed all love away
The soul to lose all faith

Rise...Looking not to surrender
Embrace the hell, self-redeemer

From darkness...light, knowledge from pain
For each ounce of suffering, experience gained
From darkness...light, solace from pain
We must walk through the shadows to be whole again

Lonely road, a path beset by specters of the past
Each haunted doorway you open leading deeper down inside
Fear builds upon fear, each level must be overcome
To learn to breathe again

Rise...Looking not to surrender
Embrace the hell, self-redeemer

From darkness...light, knowledge from pain
For each ounce of suffering, experience gained
From darkness...light, solace from pain
We must walk through the shadows to be whole again


04. Eternity (Beyond, Part I)

Crossing dark horizons
Taking leave of these turbulent shores
Through quietus bestowed the keys to this life's final door

Receive me now
In halls of stars
Enfold my soul
In your waiting arms

Follow, now the heartsong
The beloved who lie just ahead
What death hath divided, now let it unite once again

Receive me now
In halls of stars
Enfold my soul
In your loving arms


05. None Shall Know The Hour

We rise, lift our heads up to the skies
This day we anointed shall be saved
Our lord soon arrives the prophet says
We pray - on our knees proclaim our faith

In white, we ascend the highest hill
Our lives, here on Earth we've left behind
We wait - in the soil we now lay
We pray - to our Lord proclaim our faith

Thy kingdom will come, so let it be done
We wish to ascend the gates of Zion
But wait...as night melts to dawn
Can it be we were wrong?
God does not come!

Now we climb from our graves
Return to the lives that we left behind
Our faith, lying in tatters, fallen and shattered
The lesson learned?
That none shall know the hour!


06. The Damnation Of John Faustus

Through divinity I dared to raise up Hell's minions to me
For four years and twenty as servants we lay at your feet!
The price for such power, my soul hath I granted in blood
The stars move, the time runs, the clock strikes for
Faustus we come!

The wages of sin is death
The wages of sin is death

My God look not so fierce upon me, let me breathe awhile
Come not thou adders and serpents that Heaven reviles
Faustus, what weeps thou? Tis too late! Farewell!
Fool that will laugh upon Earth surely must weep in Hell!

The wages of sin is death
The wages of sin is death

Rend him asunder!
Beat him from one wall to the other!
Leave no piece of his body whole!
TO PERDITION WE CARRY HIS SOUL!

We pray
For the soul of the cursed, for the soul of the damned we pray
We pray
For the soul of the cursed, for the soul of the damned we pray


07. The Effigy Is Real

Instrumental


08. The Outsider

A life in solitude, this desolate keep my home
Wandering corridors of damp and crumbling stone
Outside the trees in grotesque twilight groves
Blot out the sun whose light has never warmed my soul

Through ancient brooks the world beyond me has been bared
And longingly I dream I've joined the living there
And though no mirrors cast a reflection of my own
I look upon myself as kindred to these souls


And now desire overtakes my fearful heart
I cast eyes upon the castle's tower dark
I'll scale these treacherous walls to reach the world above
To take my place among the joyous in the sun

Into the night air out under the moon's shining light
In search of laughter and reveling I now take flight
Onward now I fly! Onward now I fly!

Into the town from the windows the merriment flows
Seeking companionship through yonder doorway I go
All eyes turn to me...in horror all now flee

Demon, Demon - curse the night!
Mirror, Mirror - it is I!!
