01. Talisman

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
Look behind the closed doors,
Search in the empty drawers
What you're looking for you shall not ever find.
The secret is hidden from the greedy eyes,
Possessive hands and selfish minds of foolish and ignorant men.

Still it is followed, the fools for the power!

Talisman behind many wars and its greedy eye wants more.
Stars are sad for the children's blood and crying!

See the shimmer of the golden piece,
The beauty of the necklace against your pale young skin
Does it make you glad?
None of the beauty of the jewels shall you take into your tomb,
The earthly bed is equally cold for our human bones.

Fight for the glory despite other's worry!

Talisman behind many wars and its greedy eye wants more.
Stars are sad for the children's blood and crying!


02. Come Now Follow

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
He's lonely and waiting for his beloved one.
Time passes and no one's coming to shore.
Now yearning and longing he takes the offer.
The sea is seducing and promising more.

Sleep now my love
Let the soft waves carry you.
Float in silently and fall asleep.

Come now follow...
Come now follow... follow me into the sea!
Come now follow...
Come now follow and I will sing you into soothing sleep.
Come now follow...
Come now follow... hear the Sea singing!
Come now follow...
He's willingly changing into the ocean's young groom.

He's looking at the sea, the rain is raging.
His heart is lamenting, clouded by tears.
Longing for loving he hurls himself to depths
Not seeing the white sails coming to shore.

Sleep now my love
Let the soft waves carry you.
Float in silently and fall asleep.

Come now follow...
Come now follow... follow me into the sea!
Come now follow...
Come follow and I will sing you into soothing sleep.
Come now follow...
Come now follow... hear the Sea singing!
Come now follow...
He's willingly changing into the ocean's young groom.


03. Arctica

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
In the genesis of the world
Just the arctic wind was blowing.
Something came into paradise,
The everlasting snow melted away.

Arctica!
You start to think there is something greater than humankind.
Arctica!
The world is crying and the streams are telling how things went wrong.

Sorrow and worry of humankind
Sad stories to find.
The world is growing ice again,
Covering the faults of the human race!

Arctica!
You start to think there is something greater than humankind.
Arctica!
The world is crying and the streams are telling how things went wrong.


04. Ghostly Echoes

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
Touching these walls I am feeling
How madness is growing in me.
I'm hearing these voices and I realise
This house is inside my mind.

In the garden of this broken court
I am walking through and through these open doors
And I'm following the voice in a dream state
Following these calls from behind time.

The ghostly echoes... of cries and sobs...
I'm sedated by sighs, have constant fear on my mind.
The ghostly echoes... of whispers and moan...
The wind is throwing dry autumn leaves
On my dream path through the trees.

Deluded and weak I'm feeling
Breathing walls against my palm.
Changing into something hostile and bad
This court is overpowering me.

In the garden of this broken court
I am walking through and through these open doors
And I'm following the voice in a dream state
Following these calls from behind time.

The ghostly echoes... of cries and sobs...
I'm sedated by sighs, have constant fear on my mind.
The ghostly echoes... of whispers and moan...
The wind is throwing dry autumn leaves
On my dream path through the trees.

I'm wide awake but I'm dreaming
Voices are calling for me.
Floating through hollow halls
In between the lines of madness and sanity.

In the garden of this broken court
I am walking through and through these open doors
And I'm following the voice in a dream state
Following these calls from behind time.

The ghostly echoes... of cries and sobs...
I'm sedated by sighs, have constant fear on my mind.
The ghostly echoes... of whispers and moan...
The wind is throwing dry autumn leaves
On my dream path through the trees.


05. Sampo

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
The old and evil with of the lightless Northland
She asked the skillful blacksmith
To forge the wondrous Sampo, the lid in many colors,
The mighty mill to make good fortune to its holder.

The master of the forge and smithy,
Forges for her the lid in colors,
Mixes together certain metals
See the fire now burn in his eyes!
The blacksmith of Pohjola
Sees the magic Sampo rising.
Yet he has not the bride of beauty
See the fire now burn in his eyes!

And he hammers for her the lid in many colors
Rising from the fire.
To have her fairest daughter as a trade-off,
To be his wife and queen forever and ever.

The master of the forge and smithy,
Forges for her the lid in colors,
Mixes together certain metals
See the fire now burn in his eyes!
The blacksmith of Pohjola
Sees the magic Sampo rising.
Yet he has not the bride of beauty
See the fire now burn in his eyes!


06. Blackbird

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
With hollow gaze
The bird looked deep into my eyes.
I saw sadness,
Followed the blackbird into the woods.

I am the ghost of the child without a name
I sing out my tune, a song from my tomb.

Cry in the midst of the woods is mine,
A hapless mother took my life.
No sacred ground to lay in rest,
In the shape of a bird I escort your way.
Cruel is the fate of that child.

The blackbird standeth on a branch
And from the shadows of the forest
Flew ten blackbirds
Gazing at me with their gleaming eyes.

Following my path through the woods
Sad were their eyes, in undeserved doom.

Cry in the midst of the woods is mine,
A hapless mother took my life.
No sacred ground to lay in rest,
In the shape of a bird I escort your way.
Cruel is the fate of that child.


07. Field Of Serpents

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
Forge thyself a golden plowshare,
Forge the beam and mail of silver.
Ant the with ease
Thou can plow the field of serpents,
Plow the field of hissing vipers
Plow the soil of evil Hisi!

I'll hunt thine ancient mother of evil,
Hunt thine origin, o hissing serpent
Vilest thing of god's create
Syöjätär, ancient mother, thy creator
This is thine origin!

Serpents there of every species,
Lempo furrowed it with the white horses
And his plowshare!
With a beam of flaming iron!
Never since has a northern hero
Brought this field to cultivation.

I'll hunt thine ancient mother of evil,
Hunt thine origin, o hissing serpent
Vilest thing of god's create
Syöjätär, ancient mother, thy creator
This is thine origin!

Get thee hence, thou loathsome monster,
Clear the pathway of this hero!

I'll hunt thine ancient mother of evil,
Hunt thine origin, o hissing serpent
Vilest thing of god's create
Syöjätär, ancient mother, thy creator
This is thine origin!


08. City Of Corruption

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
Mother Earth gave the people
All they ever needed, wanted.
They got a paradise to live in
Eden thrived and prospered.
Life was simple, nature valued,
Earth was giving, the people willing.
Nothing was missing from human
Generous was Mother Earth.

In the weak mind of Men jealousy, gluttony took over
And all that they wanted was to own more.
Eden was violated, the vicious, corrupted city
Was swallowed up by the sea and disappeared!

Mother Earth she looked at Eden,
The exploited land, vicious Men.
Took no pity for the city,
Enforced a demise to the land!
She roused the seas to rush to shores,
Swallow all in Eden's doors.
The ingrate people and their city
Taking for granted everything!

In the weak mind of Men jealousy, gluttony took over
And all that they wanted was to own more.
Eden was violated, the vicious, corrupted city
Was swallowed up by the sea and disappeared!


09. Virvatulen Laulu

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
Kun taakse jää päivä, hilijaa raskaatsi hengähdän.
Kaipuuni saa, leudot tuulet nuo
Kutsun vievät sun luo.
Illan tullen palajan, onneni mun täällä luonasi sun.
Sieluni pois halajaa, kanssasi lähteä voisin.

Tule, tule, tule luokseni! Armahin oi,
Koht' saapuvi koi. Tule, tule, tule luokseni!

Virvatulten loimu yllä hiljaisuuden hetkyellä,
Ole siinä vierelläni
Kunnes koittaa aamun koi
Päivä saa.

Tyhjyyden taa ilman sua valossa vaellan.
Muistosi saa minut kaipaamaan
Yöhön varjojen taa.
Yö on aikaa armahin
Aamu luo kasteen hopeisen.
Soiden yllä leijailen, tartu nyt kätteni loistoon!

Tule, tule, tule luokseni! Armahin oi,
Koht' saapuvi koi. Tule, tule, tule luokseni!

Virvatulten loimu yllä hiljaisuuden hetkyellä,
Ole siinä vierelläni
Kunnes koittaa aamun koi
Päivä saa.


10. War In Heaven

Music by Tuomas Seppälä
Lyrics by Heidi Parviainen
After God created man he called for the angels
To fly down on Earth and bow before his creation.
Driven by his pride this angel made his plans
Against God and all the angel's force,
Gathered his own army of the fallen angels
To strive for the highest seat of God!

God and his angel forces
Encountered the power of fallen angel army
And a war arose in heaven
Michael and his angels fought the dragon!
No longer place in heaven,
He was thrown down to Earth with all his angels.
Misusing the free will of the mind
He signed himself a place in Hell!

I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!

Sataniel being one of the highest Archangels
Fount it too humbling by far, refused to obey.
In the third heaven the harmony of angels
Was disturbed by a deceiver
Who convinced some angels to join him
And he seduced Eve from the shelter of God!

God and his angel forces
Encountered the power of fallen angel army
And a war arose in heaven
Michael and his angels fought the dragon!
No longer place in heaven,
He was thrown down to Earth with all his angels.
Misusing the free will of the mind
He signed himself a place in Hell!

I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!
