01. Ten Of Swords

Lyrics by Boucher
Trapped in a prison that's built on belief
Playing the victim, consumed by my grief
Tricks my mind plays using old memories
Painting them blacker than when they were real
After a while I get unsatisfied
I will get out of these knots I have tied

This pain I hold lives in my soul
Yet I must learn to let it go
I must go on, I must be strong
It's always darkest right before dawn

Hostile imagery inside my head
focused on anger, defeat and regret
Inaction is an action in itself
This is the darkest that I've ever felt
Impending change is a must to survive
I'm just existing, not really alive

I'm just going through the motions, but no living
I must take back what I've lost and fight my demons
I embrace my darker side
Knowing that it's part of life
Even with my war inside
I will rise again

This pain I hold lives in my soul
Yet I must learn to let it go
I must go on, I must be strong
It's always darkest right before dawn


02. A Veiled Horizon

Lyrics by Cowen
A veiled horizon
A land held back
Of worlds undone
Immortal in black
An endless tomorrow
Engulfed in eclipse
Black morning's sorrow
The absurdity we live
The absurdity, with nothing left to give

And we are... cast to live undone
Until the heart is gone
And bred to fail
Cast to live undone
And setting like the sun
Where shadows burn
And we become

Into a dead sun's delight
With tears to tear
All faces alike
Of that earth that we wear
Inspired indeed
What lacks the time
As horizons decree
Such reflections lead us blind
Such reflections lead us,
And we remain behind

And we are... cast to live undone
Until the heart is gone
And bred to fail
Cast to live undone
And setting like the sun
Where shadows burn
And we become

Tearing deep into the earth
Lost and searching
The sacrifice of rebirth,
A new dawning
Circle complete in the dirt
Beyond the pain that has been endured
Where heavens litter the sky
Removed from reason
Banished from all that was mine
No solace given
Destined desire untold
The advent of existence calling me

Cast to live undone
Until the heart is gone
And bred in vain
Cast to live undone
In exile and among
Where shadows burn
And we become


03. Memories Of Blood And Gold

Lyrics by Boucher/Patton
Walls made of blood and gold
Starting to unfold ancient tales left untold
Amber colored eyes slowing hypnotize
Lead them to their sacrifice
Sail from the land of old, holding on to hope
Conquering a new world made of gold

Dreaming and searching
Finding and claiming
Blood and gold

Stars tell the prophecy of what is to be
Descending from the towers of the sea
As they realize the fate of their demise
The end of a mighty empire
Now, greed has come to claim
Falling eagles reign
Only ruins now remain

Dreaming and searching
Finding and claiming
Blood and gold


04. The Scarlet Embrace

Lyrics by Patton
Reveal yourself to me
Reveal yourself to me

Unleash all your desires
Release your inner fires

Beneath your scarlet robe
What pain will pleasures hold
On paths that lovers strode
Between the crimson folds

Reveal yourself to me
What visions will be seen
Inside burning manic dreams
And chaotic crimson screams

Unleash all your desires
Release your inner fires

Your taste is what I crave
Your scent makes me anticipate
I'll hunt you like my prey
I long for your scarlet embrace

Reveal yourself to me
What visions will be seen
Inside burning manic dreams
And chaotic crimson screams


05. Descent Of A Blackened Soul

Lyrics by Boucher
Everyday they wear me down
And scar my soul day in day out
This burden, I cannot bear
Living in this nightmare
Voices of emotion, chaos in my head
A voice from the commotion
Screams above the rest
Despair turns into pain
Anger turns into hate
Revenge calls my name
Spellbound by my rage

All this pain, takes its toll
And it makes the heart grow cold
The descent of a blackened soul

I replace reality with comforts of insanity
I can't go back for it's too late
To the dream world I escape
Voices of emotion no longer crying out
Desire your destruction, I long to take you down
What's real? What is not?
The line has been crossed
Darkness killed my empathy
Fire consuming me

All this pain, takes its toll
And it makes the heart grow cold
The descent of a blackened soul

As the fog clears, the haze wears off
The rush subsides
What have I done?
I stand before your lifeless shell
Now you understand my hell
I descend in the abyss
Deeper now I start to drift
To the sweet slumber of madness


06. Twilight Fires

Lyrics by Boucher
As darkness falls, daylight dies
And I hear the call of the night
A moonless sky above me
I come alive like twilight fire

I slither like the shadows
Whisper madness, feel no pain

Nocturnal serenade
In the darkness I reign

Innocence sleeps, demons dance
A veil for the thief, witches chant
Ideas disguised as a dream
I come alive like twilight fire

I slither like the shadows
Whisper madness, feel no pain

Nocturnal serenade
In the darkness I reign


07. Buried Beneath A Thousand Dreams

Lyrics by Patton
A gift of freedom to the caged
And the gold that couldn't stay
Spirit chains of jealous rage, concealed
Hearts are strewn across the floor
From a love that is no more
Ship of dreams has left the shore

And empty heart, an empty soul
I fall apart, I'm all alone

Buried beneath a thousand dreams
Buried beneath a thousand dreams

Lonely mornings turn to day,
Turn to evenings filled with pain
Will I ever be the same again
As my silent heart awakes,
From the ashes I'm remade
I start to pull out the stake

It's time to live, not time to mourn
I will resist, I am reborn

Buried beneath a thousand dreams
Buried beneath a thousand dreams
Buried beneath a thousand dreams
Buried beneath a thousand dreams


08. Letalis Deus

Lyrics by Boucher
From the void,
Nothingness becomes aware of itself
Consciousness is born
Self realization through creation
And so the universe is born

Lost inside the human maze
Through your mind, you create
Only way to the other side
Is to live and to die

Eons pass by,
Alone with all this power
Sure makes for a stagnant existence
The solution?
Divide into pieces
The immortal ones, long to be flesh

Organized religion
A distortion of the truth
Make your own decision
Ignorance will undo you

I, I am the game
I, I am the player
I'm the creator
I'm the destroyer

Lost inside the human maze
Through your mind, you create
Only way to the other side
Is to live and to die
