01. Neothera Awakening

Music by Jakke Viitala
[Instrumental]


02. The Crown of Treason

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
Foul is the sin as feat left undone
Words belied by deeds no grace will atone
Are you not your father's son
Hence talons are fashioned in your crown

Woe sworn on visage adored
Woe sworn upon sheathed sword
Woe sworn and no longer ignored
Thorns circling your palatine reward

So the blame was yours and yours alone
Lies for child mundane is yet treason
Are you not your mother's son
Hence talons are fashioned in your crown

Woe sworn on visage adored
Woe sworn upon sheathed sword
Woe sworn and no longer ignored
Thorns circling your palatine reward

Woe sworn on visage adored
Woe sworn upon sheathed sword
Woe sworn and no longer ignored
Crown sharpened in cold ashen forge


03. Wildfire Season

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
Beyond the suns fading warmth
Belief and fear in darkness born
Year by year frailer grown
Cast to flame on wildfire season
Departing light and omen cold winds wore
Rise on their wings and leave these shores
Feathered hope flee the winter claws
Weeping skies and wildfire season

I burn, sear graze of flame inside
I burn, leave no serene thought alive

Ablaze
Once famine seizes the way
No plans flames obey
Consume the heart in hideaway
I burn with heat of hate divine
I burn in cold sunless light

Beyond the suns fading warmth
Belief and fear in darkness born
Year by year frailer grown
Cast to flame on wildfire season
Departing light and omen cold winds wore
Rise on their wings and leave these shores
Feathered hope flee the winter claws
Weeping skies and wildfire season


04. Where Waning Winds Lead

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
Away flows the hourglass sand
She wields on her hands
Away flew the spirit tied to the land
Dies the elan on her dance

Away, the whispers in reveries
Leaves with wind they breath
Away, faith-sealed old memories
Grief and fire in dreams

Where waning winds may lead
Howling the storm wails weak
Dark is now shades of bleak

Gone is the zeal, fading vivacity
Where waning winds may lead
Lost is the fate, promised in prophecy
Grief and fire in dreams
Where waning winds may lead

Away, the whispers in reveries
Leaves with wind they breath
Away, faith-sealed old memories
Grief and fire in dreams

Away, the whispers in reveries
Leaves with wind they breath
Away, faith-sealed old memories
Grief and fire in dreams

Where waning winds may lead
Howling the storm wails weak
Dark is now shades of bleak

Gone is the zeal, fading vivacity
Where waning winds may lead
Lost is the fate, promised in prophecy
Grief and fire in dreams
Where waning winds may lead

Surcease the stir of the seven wheels
What greed once sowed is ripe for child to reap
So dies the light, in hearths frost now creeps
So dies the light, we fall in dreamless sleep

Gone is the zeal, fading vivacity
Where waning winds may lead
Lost is the fate, promised in prophecy
Grief and fire in dreams


05. Sun Orphaned

Music by Jakke Viitala, Helena Haaparanta
[Instrumental]


06. Ascension Pyre

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
Rise, one as chaos majesty
Entwined... shadow and fire
One to voice defiance
Legions heed
Zenith of light, Nadir of dark
Entwined... shadow and fire
Red flame, red sand, red dawn... Seth!

Hear suns demand
Wind shaped in words
Flow shifting sand
In tones of crimson rebirth

See stars aligned draped in flames
Rebellion divine, arise, reborn to reign

Rise, one as skein of all fates
Typhon... born from pyre
Stir halcyon, calm severe, winds between
Slithering exiled vehemence
Typhon... born from pyre
Resurrection, incarnation
Black rage, black storm, black god... Ascend!

Hear slaves harangue
Their defiant words
Shifting from divine to man
In tales returning to earth

What once was balance
Archaic serene
Hear storms advance
Song reborn unseen


07. Shadow Hearth

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
As life ever was
In trails you retrace
Stream never pause
New dawn chase

Heart shedding ashes white
Furnace rimmed in frost
Devoid of searing bright
Brim they never crossed

Fall sundered ways to seek your shadow hearth
Soul-deep in dark
Cast sorrows forth and they shall depart
Unless dawn proves us scarred

Pathways worn deep
By many or none
Yet past only weeps
Passing of one

Casting tails unveiled
Silhouettes besieged
Retreating vulpine shades
All borders breached

Fall sundered ways to seek your shadow hearth
Soul-deep in dark
Cast sorrows forth and they shall depart
Unless dawn proves us scarred

Fall sundered ways to seek your shadow hearth
Soul-deep in dark
Cast sorrows forth and they shall depart
Unless dawn proves us scarred


08. Non Serviam

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
Dawn retreat as skyline comes alive
Upon this field not hundred yards wide
None can be spared, revenge they will swear
Swarming in thousands reeking despair

Countless wars none worth elegies
Triumphs fade to breeze

Sword of yours claiming your demands
Treaty will wash the blood from your hands
So be it for vengeance, be it for land
Your cause will hate consecrate

Countless lords none worth serving
Faith for the long dead king

Will you wield your vice
And shape it as virtue
For life to entice

"In peace, sons bury their fathers
In war, fathers bury their sons"
So respect no blood, witness no birth
Ties to the flesh have none
Bow to no god, buried by world
Be done and be gone

Countless paths none worth journey
Until your trail ends to sea


09. Aubade

Music by Jakke Viitala, Helena Haaparanta
Lyrics by Helena Haaparanta
Are you afraid?
Are you ashamed?
The light has died...
Your last goodbye.

You'll never know how it feels
To lose yourself, to be complete
And no-one else will take the blame -
It's mine to bear.

"Come, play with me!"
...And so did he.
Beyond your trust
Hurt you I must.

You'll never know how it feels
To lose yourself, to be complete
And no-one else will take the blame -
It's mine to bear.

My body's tired of losing you
The drug of lust you withdrew
Tonight I had no choice
To leave you breathing...

You'll never know how it feels
To lose yourself, to be complete
And no-one else will take the blame -
It's mine to bear.

You'll never know how it feels
To lose yourself, to be complete
And no-one else will take the blame -
It's mine to bear.


10. Hundred Shores Distant

Music by Jakke Viitala
Lyrics by Mikko Häkkinen
Sail between three winds of war
One leads you home while others crave more

Have I conquered the shame?
Do they now sing my name?

Ride forth my son, slain as your guide
Ride to match your fathers stride

Was I worth it all?
Was I? Dusk I can't recall

Beyond pristine ways
Heaving sea, temerity, storm hope away
Sail sorrows grey
Drifting astray, solace frail as moonlight ray

Sail beneath the vanguard of sky
They might have fallen but still hold the light

Am I part of this land?
Am I the last of my clan?

Beyond pristine ways
Heaving sea, temerity, storm hope away
Sail sorrows grey
Drifting astray, solace frail as moonlight ray

Sun silver, rain spear
Waves shattering white

Winds sigh cold...
What mercy dark did hide
Winds sigh cold...
Wake in world veiled white
Winds sigh cold...
Where seared shores reside
Winds sigh cold...
Sheltered vernal fright
Winds sigh cold...
What mercy dark did hide
Winds sigh cold...
