Music by Yves Huts
Lyrics by Ad Sluijter
Numquam Remotiores ab origine
Media parte mundi
Funditus aberramus

Ultimum excidium sui


02. Dance Of Fate

Music by Mark Jansen, Yves Huts, Coen Janssen, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
When darkness will reign and blind us all

When darkness will reign and blind us all
Allegiance will bind us if we do not fall

We cannot tell when morning comes
Is there a choice to live another day?
It's hard to find a new direction in your fragile life

The precious time of your existence is now to come
Don't throw your life away by cheating time
Sugared placebos only fool your mind

Now I want the water to wash away all my sins
The wind to blow away my thoughts without meaning
The fire to burn away my thickened skin

When darkness will reign and blind us all
Allegiance will bind us if we do not fall

Novas portas pandimus

What is this pace, the type of dance?
I cannot tell which steps I have to take
I'd like to leave, just run away
My feet are tangled up

So hard to face the pace of the clock
What do you think? Will it ever stop?
So will I fall and not get up?
I take it all in stride

Now I want the water to wash away all my sins
The wind to blow away my thoughts without meaning
The fire to burn away my thickened skin

Everything has a reason for its happening
Can't you tell it's your own spell and
Everyone has to dance this dance like anyone
Can't break free of destiny

We should open new doors and
Close the ones that we've left behind

Now I want the water to wash away all my sins
The wind to blow away my thoughts without meaning
The fire to burn away my thickened skin

When darkness will reign and blind us all
Allegiance will bind us if we do not fall

Novas portas pandimus
Et post nos occludimus


03. The Last Crusade (A New Age Dawns I)

Music by Mark Jansen, Yves Huts, Ad Sluijter
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
Magna culpa nostra
Poena danda nobis
Usque ad finem erit dierum

Ad finem temporum

You can't force yourself upon me
And you never will
You can't keep digging in
Desecrated graves

No more innocence left to spill

Don't be afraid, participate and
Just give us all your trust
Your soul will be saved
Just honour me, I'll set you free so
Get ready to join the
Very last crusade

Ad finem temporum

You can't get away with your crimes
And you never will
For you'll have to pay the price
And the time is near

No more innocence left to kill

Don't be afraid, participate and
Just give us all your trust
Your soul will be saved
Just honour me, I'll set you free so
Get ready to join the
Very last crusade

Magna culpa nostra
Poena danda nobis
Usque ad finem erit dierum

Ad finem temporum

Don't be afraid, participate and
Just give us all your trust
Your soul will be saved
Just honour me, I´ll set you free so
Get ready to join the
Very last crusade

Don't be afraid, participate and
Just give us all your trust
Your soul will be saved
Just honour me, I'll set you free so
Get ready to join the
Very last crusade

Get ready to taste the
Final victory

Ad finem temporum


04. Solitary Ground

Music by Coen Janssen, Mark Jansen, Ad Sluijter, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Living at different places
Evading into various spaces
My compass has broken, I'm losing the way
An ongoing madness has led me astray

My past breathes down my neck
And it seems now that all I can do is
Go back to beginnings when all lay ahead
A fading illusion now plagues me instead

In me there's still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here that I call home and run to when winter descends
If I try can I find solid ground

I follow elusive paths
Oh it seems they've been written in stone
And the door to a new life is closing so fast
Burning the bridges will not bring me back

In me there's still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here that I call home and run to
When winter descends,
If I try can I find solid ground

I know that in me there still a place that fulfils me
A sanctity here, that I call home and run to
When winter descends
If I try can I find solid ground

Or am I just wasting time?


05. Blank Infinity

Music by Mark Jansen, Coen Janssen, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Trying to keep myself afloat upon this stream
But a thought is pulling me down
Pulling me all the way down

We are wandering towards a blank infinity
And extinguishing will now be the only way
To diminish your sins
This vortex can't be filled up again
A hole in space and time

Do you cry to the heaven's high
When you're confined in here?
Do you not ever wonder why
These leaden tears will never dry?
They'll leave behind so many shadows in my mind

High in the sky, all of the clouds are passing by
Wait for the storm, wait for the rain
Wait for the tears to fall down on me

We are wandering towards a blank infinity
And extinguishing will now be the only way
To diminish your sins
This vortex can't be filled up again
A hole in space and time

Do you cry to the heaven's high
When you're confined in here?
Do you not ever wonder why
These leaden tears will never dry?
They'll leave behind so many shadows
Living in me, living in all the memories in my life

Do you wonder why
These tears never dry?
Time forced into life (in my life)
Living in my mind

Can we ever find a way in this labyrinth without end?

Labyrinth has no end

Which turn should I take?
Left or right?
Should I stay?
Should I be the one?

Do you cry to the heaven's high
When you're confined in here?
Do you not ever wonder why
These leaden tears will never dry?
They'll leave behind so many shadows
The substance in time forced into life
Still exists because it's here
Living in me, living in all the memories in my life


06. Force Of The Shore

Music by Mark Jansen, Coen Janssen, Simone Simons, Yves Huts
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Appearance is deceptive
So perfect in disguise
There's more than what you see

A semblance is protective
A blinder for the eyes
A place to hide and flee

Flee and you'll never see
What you're going to be
If you throw away the key

The truth from the past you can't make it last

Appearance is deceptive
So perfect in disguise
There's more than what you see

A semblance is protective
A blinder for the eyes
A place to hide and flee

Flee and walk away
From what you are this day
If you are afraid to stay

The truth from the past you can't make it last

Beyond the shore the sea is filled up
with sentiment and strength
Here lie the thoughts imprisoned
A field of forces and laments

How can we hide here
We need to change our ways
How can we tell lies here
We turn our eyes away

From the truth, from the past
You cannot make it last

Appearance is deceptive
So perfect in disguise
There's more than what you see

A semblance is protective
A blinder for the eyes
A place to hide and flee

If you do not cease to run away from truth
You will never see the shadow
Of your dying youth

A façade is what we all possess
But on the inside it stays a mess

Superficial changes won't recall the past
Don't deny the clock is ticking
And it's racing fast

Fading tokens of our latter days
Make us think we need to change our ways

Deep, the feelings hide
They're wasted from within
And my shell will never break

The truth from the past you can't make it last

Beyond the shore the sea is filled up
with sentiment and strength
Here lie the thoughts imprisoned
A field of forces and laments

Appearance is deceptive
So perfect in disguise
A place to flee and hide and run away
Lift the shadow


07. Quietus

Music by Mark Jansen, Yves Huts, Coen Janssen, Ad Sluijter, S.Simons, J. Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
The culprit, you act before thinking
Caught in your ignorant sin
And lying to your own reflection
You thought you could hide

Deprived of my own innocence, denied

The infinity of recurring torment
Your comeuppance

See, hear the torture inside
Devouring what was left of my pride
You thought it's not going to happen to you
Thought you could hide

Deprived of my own innocence, denied

The infinity of recurring torment
Your comeuppance
Dwelling in a mind, mixed up and
Your regret has spread over the sea

Deprived of my own innocence, denied

The infinity of recurring torment
Your comeuppance
Dwelling in a mind, mixed up and
Your regret has spread over the sea


08. Mother Of Light (A New Age Dawns II)

Music by Mark Jansen, Ad Sluijter
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
It always put me on the edge
To think of all the spoilt lives
Today I'm one step further
Not sure if I've survived myself

Reality is sometimes stranger than fiction
Whatever happens in my dreams
And I know it can't be worse than this
So I prefer to sleep

I am searching without vision
For the answers in the dirt
I am waiting just for nothing
For the day that I'll be heard

You're the sea in which I'm floating
And I lose myself in you
I am feeling these sensations
I communicate with you

I am looking without vision
For a different kind of way
I am thinking just for nothing
About that specific day

You're the night so you're the dark side
Of the day you'll never see
You're the past but everlasting
Can you share one day with me?

You're the hand that I rejected
But I can't forgive myself
I am selfish and not worthy
To think of, even to die for

Reality is sometimes stranger than fiction
Whatever happens in my dreams
I know it can't be worse than this
So I prefer to sleep

Tomorrow, don't know where I'll be
I need some place to go now
So do you know the way I feel
Or shall I give up my belief?

You're the lock I've never opened
'Cause I threw away the key
I'm enclosed within my own thoughts
That will never set me free

You're the hand that I rejected
But I can't forgive myself
I am selfish and not worthy
To think of, even to die for

You're the question to the answer
And without there'll never be
Any thought in this direction
You've created this in me

You're the hand that I rejected
But I can't forgive myself
I am selfish and not worthy
To think of, even to die for

Serenity is taking over all I am, it gives me peace
And all I see are visions of my destiny
Why should I bleed and pay for others' greed?

We consciously sign our own sentence of death
How can you go on, did you forget
What we have learnt from the past?
We can't go on killing ourselves
And with us all the rest
Why can't you see, don't you regret?

Reality is sometimes stranger than fiction
Whatever happens in my dreams
And I know it can't be worse than this
So I prefer to sleep

I am alone with all my thoughts
Alone without a hope and
I lost the thing I needed most
I feel I can't survive this fall


09. Trois Vierges

Music by Mark Jansen, Coen Janssen, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Memory, fading out
Its presence still lingers in my mind
Listen to your inner voice
There's no escape, there's no other choice

A foolish fate that came about
Death could not leave without
Don't try to scour your inane soul
It would be labours lost

Deep inside hides a lie
Where can we try to seek
A way so this will die

Innocence died when they took his mind
And they tried to leave him behind
Not even a cascade of tears will save you
And keep you away from harm

Concinnity of destiny
Is not what you wished it to be

Deep inside hides a lie
Where can we try to seek
A way so this will die

Blind by love
Between lust and hate
You scarred your fate
There's no time to waste

Ride for your own ruin
Odium became your opium

Please don't let me bleed for all eternity

Deep inside hides a lie
Where can we try to seek
A way so this...

Please leave me be in my own misery


10. Another Me (In Lack'ech)

Music & lyrics by Mark Jansen
If you search for enrichment
And injure others
Earning more that you can spend
You'll pass the borders

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

This fantasy is not enough for me
I want it, I'll take it away from you
Your misery that softly incites me
All I do is using, abusing you

Life is often miserable
In the search for happiness
The power's so desirable
They bring so much distress

Life is often pitiful
In the search for blessedness
If we weren't so insatiable
There would be much more than less

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

If you search for enrichment
And injure others
Earning more that you can spend
You'll pass the borders

I cannot see why you'd be another me

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

I just take care of myself and no-one else

This fantasy is not enough for me
I want it, I'll take it away from you
Your misery that softly incites me
All I do is using, abusing you

Life is often cynical
In the search for hopefulness
We're only wanting more and more
So we got into this mess

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

If you search for enrichment
And injure others
Earning more that you can spend
You'll pass the borders

I cannot see why you'd be another me

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

I just take care of myself and no-one else

All that you've taken from others
Will be taken from you
All that your dissonance smothers
Will then come back to you
Whatever happens tomorrow, and whatever you do
Just keep in mind that the source and end is you

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

If you search for enrichment
And injure others
Earning more that you can spend
You'll pass the borders

I cannot see why you'd be another me

When you think you've succeeded
But something's missing
Means you have been defeated
By greed, your weakness

I just take care of myself and no-one else

This fantasy is not enough for me
I want it, I'll take it away from you
Your misery that softly incites me
All I do is using, abusing you

Never finding fulfilment
The source and end is you (In Lack'ech)


11. Consign To Oblivion (A New Age Dawns III)

Music by Mark Jansen, Ad Sluijter
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end

The only thing that counts is the prosperity of today
Most important to us is that our bills get paid

Our good intentions have always been delayed

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end
When we will stand in front of heaven's gate
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
Try to listen to your heart
No, we can't understand the universe
by just using our minds
We are so afraid of all the things unknown

A must we appease is the lust to get laid
Nothing really matters, just devouring our prey

Our good intentions have always been delayed so
Our generous acts have always come too late

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end
When we will stand in front of heaven's gate
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
Try to listen to your heart
No, we can't understand the universe
by just using our minds
We are so afraid of all the things unknown
We just flee into a dream that never comes true

Low to the ground we feel safe
Low to the ground we feel brave

Oblivisci tempta quod didicisti

Open your eyes, we're not in paradise
How can't you see this stress is killing me?
Fulfil your dreams, life is not what is seems to be
We have captured time
So time made us all hostages without mercy

Seemingly generous fooling ourselves
Selfishly venomous time tells

Too much thinking goes at the cost of all our intuition
Our thoughts create reality
But we neglect to be!
So we're already slaves of our artificial world
We shouldn't try to control life
But listen to the laws of nature

Open your eyes, we're not in paradise
How can't you see this stress is killing me?
Fulfil your dreams, life is not what is seems to be
We have captured time
So time made us all hostages without mercy

Low to the ground we feel safe
Low to the ground we feel brave

We all think we're generous
But we only fool ourselves
The only thing that matters is
Our way and our vision

Selfishly we're venomous
But you know the time tells us
There is more to life than our
Higher positions, race for perfection
Better, faster
We must return to the laws of the nature
Free ourselves from madness


12. The Fallacy

I can't stand the way you've forsaken me
I see through the wicked games you've played with me
Do you feel the suspicion stirring up?
Can't you see that they long to give you up?

Can't you come lie with me?
Forget about your fallacy.
Seduce me with your fantasies
Of passion and obscurity

I see that you can't get away with this
You can't wave aside your lies with one more kiss
Do you feel the suspicion stirring up?
Can't you see that they long to give you up?

Can't you come lie with me?
Forget about your fallacy.
Seduce me with your fantasies
Of passion and obscurity

I foresee that you'll be with me
You have seen that I took you back to me
Play with me as I do...
I do with you

I can't stand the way you have forsaken me
I see through the reason of this fallacy

Can't you come lie with me?
Forget about your fallacy.
Seduce me with your fantasies
Of passion and obscurity
Why can't you come lie with me?
Forget about your fallacy.
Seduce me in your wildest dreams
Of passion and conspiracy
