01. Ethica Odini

Music by I. S. Peersen
Lyrics by K. Grutle
Reckless men - So righteous, so clean
Towards the light - So bashful, so pure

Who told you to abandon life
Your strength, free will
And bow for the light?
The light! And turn from the spinning wheel

Fear of the judgment!
Obey!

Ref:
You have the key to mystery
Pick up the runes; unveil and see
Judgment comes, before us lie
The paths of war and you may die
You have the key, cross over and see
The old and wind-cold tree
Walk the steps and you'll hear the winds that cry

Search beyond the blinded eyes
Listen before you preach
Don't leave yourself behind

Honor life, when life has ceased
Welcome the dawn

Beware the glory tales

Watch their deeds - So just and fair
Crusaders - Appointed by God

Who told you to step inside and preach?
Did you forget the daggers lurking in the dark?
Couldn't you listen or didn't you ever learn how?
Were you saved?
Were you saved, so you could slaughter with grace?

Ref:
You have the key to mystery
Pick up the runes; unveil and see
Judgment comes, before us lie
The paths of war and you may die
You have the key, cross over and see
The old and wind-cold tree
Walk the steps and you'll hear the winds that cry

Search beyond the blinded eyes
Listen before you preach
Don't leave yourself behind

Honor life, when life has ceased
Welcome the dawn

Beware the glory tales

Hold on, don't fade away
Don't be afraid to bleed
Don't be afraid to dream

Let the elders enlighten the path
They have cried for you
They have died for you

Drasill - Ride on

Drasill - Ride on

Ride on

Drasill


02. Raidho

Music & lyrics by I. S. Peersen
This journey without movement
Heading out for no-man's land
The way ahead my only ally
Early hours, in the silence

This credence keeps me upright
Through the storms and disasters
A straight line towards the unknown end
Deceit waits on the back roads

This unwavering inner
Keeps fear a welcomed pointer
I, uprooted, now the fertile soil
As plot and shadows thicken

This juggernaut cannot be stopped
On any scale or planet
Ghostly tracks in my wake and ahead
An experience, cannot be shared

Ref:
Wheels of time
Keep them turning
Carriage of concepts
Circling the planes

Lightless voyage, blinding speeds
Certain; I'll stay the distance
Abstract shapes, enigmatic design
I know enough to endure

Lightless corridors, ageless
Familiar / Alien
Contradictory engines run high
Deeper and further above

Journey of no promises
Beyond the lust for rewards
Focus on the movement of the Wheel
Union of stillness and change

Journey of the ages all
I'll follow outside the edge
Breath, blood, sacrifice and bleeding eyes
Unending journey ahead

Ref:
Wheels of time
Keep them turning
Carriage of concepts
Circling the planes


03. Waruun

Music & lyrics by I. S. Peersen
See them as they rise
From ancient sands - constructs
They're reaching everywhere and nowhere
As they're trampling on the archetypes
The listener warns

Tension... Pain... Fear... Violence

It reaches the limit set by
Ageless reason
Tension paints logic's hunts
Pain dances... (with justice)

Lies for the liar served without remorse
Like the gifts bring gifts
Altering view

Constant truth - drained of spirit
By own will

"Ref..":
Waruun
Waruun - Drawn in the dust of morning
Waruun - The violence of the soul

Suicides upon the altars
Of evasion

Feared dissonance kept away - nails on stone
As darkness descents
Can't find our way out of here
Yet... It was built by you
Words on the trap-door

"Ref..":
Waruun
Waruun - Drawn in the dust of morning
Waruun - The violence of the soul

Tension... Pain... Fear... Violence

How could freedom become the cage-maker?
What spoke to the mind-slayer?


04. The Beacon

Music by I. S. Peersen
Lyrics by K. Grutle
To war!
Let the havoc be revenged

March!
Against the lords of perdition

Live!
Breathe!

Persecute the ones that left to persecute your soul
Crush the scepters of the kings and come and
Hail the vows of old!

Ref:
Hear them cry
Watch them fly
Let them bow to the altars of suppression
Till you'll feel them die

Hear them cry
Watch them fly
The power and the free will they deny

Beyond the mist
Far above
On the highest peak
The beacon is lit
On the highest peak
The beacon will burn

How did I get this far?
How did it come to this?
Was my blood spilt in vain?
Did I survive, did I break the chains?
Was I ever alive?

Struggle through the wounds
Struggle through the fears
Struggle through the truths
You stand alone

Come through!
Release me!

Ref:
Hear them cry
Watch them fly
Let them bow to the altars of suppression
Till you'll feel them die

Hear them cry
Watch them fly
The power and the free will they deny

Beyond the mist
Far above
On the highest peak
The beacon is lit
On the highest peak
The beacon will burn

I walked this far myself
My blood dripped from my knife
I awoke, and was alive
I did no longer weep
I saw my beacon, I ran to aid


05. Axioma

Music by I. S. Peersen
Lyrics by I. S. Peersen & K. Grutle
"Mind not the worshippers of punishment,
Un-growers and resisters"

Close your eyes, sense the below
Torment and separation points ahead
Set ablaze like steel through skin

"Fear not the settlement with those who fear the truth"

Leave now, bid farewell with no grief
Their words have no power
The forces will roam and return


06. Giants

Music by I. S. Peersen
Lyrics by K. Grutle
No distance, no time
Endless void, absence of life
Chaos dwells outside the womb
Seduce, Invoke
Embrace, Give birth

See through the flesh
See past the soul
Feel the pulsating twilight
Domain of unborn thoughts
Go back, Unveil
Approach the cosmic womb

No smile without pain
No grief without laughter

Ref.:
Turn inwards, Realize
Witness the march of the Giants
- Soil and seed
Turn inwards, Gratify
Witness the storming of heaven
- Endless rebirth

Come nearer, Restless sin
Step into the core
They will welcome your return
Further in
Ride the storm one can't escape

Awake the Gods
Awake the Gods

Ref.:
Turn inwards, Realize
Witness the march of the Giants
- Soil and seed
Turn inwards, Gratify
Witness the storming of heaven
- Endless rebirth


07. Singular

Music & lyrics by I. S. Peersen
Born into oblivion
Without the fear
-of existing all alone

Later comes the acquisition - forced upon
The solitude
Now loneliness
The god now submerged in a game of guilt

Psychopathic shepherds deny the miracle
-of our essence
...And yet we have part in the blame

Allowing their ravings,
Comforting their weakness, their sickness
It is time to
LIVE
TRUST
NO
ONE

Recognize black
Recognize white
Recognize shadows
I am with gods

Black...White...Shadows...Gods
Recognize black
Recognize white
Recognize shadows
I am with gods

Traitors want to keep you down
Rise up from the ground

No-one steals what no-one owns
Disown and distance

Strong is she who realizes
Ethics built on sacrifice

No-one steals what no-one owns

One by one by one

Strong is she who realizes
Ethics built on sacrifice

No need for companionship
Back into the silence
It is all it needs
Desolation

Singular - Death - Birth
Singular - Birth - Death

Alone in birth
Alone in the darkness
Alone in death
Alone in the daylight

One with reality
Shaped by the inner glow
Determination - I
All can be reached from within

Born into oblivion
Without the fear
-of existing all alone

Later comes the acquisition - forced upon
The solitude
Now loneliness
The God now submerged in a game of guilt

Psychopathic shepherds deny the miracle
-of our essence
...And yet we have part in the blame

Allowing their ravings,
Comforting their weakness, their sickness
It is time to
LIVE
TRUST
NO
ONE

Recognize black
Recognize white
Recognize shadows
I am with gods


08. Night Sight

Music & lyrics by I. S. Peersen
I can see through the veil
Seeing all I need see
Nothing is hidden here
Deep into the woods

Casting
Letters that speak of...
All
Is all
Is naught

No-one but me
Knows of this place
Sanctuary
Where I construct

Dream while there is no strife
Anguish pulls no weight
One can see and the other is blind
Through the same pair of eyes

We have lost sight
Of the night-side of the self
Hunted by the fear
Of reunion
Night-sight is bliss
For he who dares look into
A world where you embrace the opposite
Where you are whole

There is no lasting joy
In numbness and dogma
Too much is too little in knowledge
Driven by mystery

We have lost sight
Of the night-side of the self
Hunted by the fear
Of reunion
Night-sight is bliss
For he who dares look into
A world where you embrace the opposite
Where you are whole


09. Lightening

Music by I. S. Peersen
Lyrics by K. Grutle
I crossed the borders
The pain won't go away

For this treason, I want to see them
... Burn!
Hunt them down
Make them understand
The power I possess

I'll give you piece of mind
And freedom to search inside

I'll suffer for your souls

I cleaned the air
I slew death in your way
The hand of peace
All evil's great dismay

Hear the wheels turn
See the sky burns

For this treason, I want to see them...
Burn!
Track them down
Bring them to silence
My will is the law

I'll bring you life and growth
And erase the memories of despair

I'll suffer for your needs

Don't you forget where your domain lies
Obey your slaves, with their feeble cries
We'll force you back if you linger here
We mock your strength, we see your fear
You'll never set a slave's mind free
Your bane is the grip of anxiety

At the ninth...

REID - Travel with no fear
REID - Remember to return
REID - Defy the laughing chaos
REID - Strike again

You fight the wars for your kin
You leave yourself behind
This settlement, you can't win
The inner eye is blind


REID - Travel with no fear
REID - Remember to return
REID - Defy the laughing chaos
REID - Strike again

You fight the wars for your kin
You leave yourself behind
This settlement, you can't win
The inner eye is blind

I will clean the air
I know the pain will stay
I'll cross the border
I'll never fade away

For this treason, I want to see them...
Burn!
Track them down
Bring them to silence
My will is the law

I'll bring you life and growth
And erase the memories of despair

I will linger on
