01. The Old Kin

[Instrumental]


02. Wolf And The Wintercold

It's getting cold, it's heart of winter night.
Mournful howl echoes from the mountain side.
Soon the sky starts to burn beyond the spine,
It shines for death, it's your time.
My sacred hopes won't come true.
I am the one who understands our past
And what it gives us tomorrow...

I must grab my weapon and make it shine,
It shall eat flesh, moon shines at the sky.
March my men until you die.
It's a great honor for those who won't survive.
March my men to claws of death.
It welcomes you to the house of gods.
March my men and feel no fear of unknown, I am here.
March my men and we shall win!
Blessing your family after glorious fall.
March my men and we might see our homes again.

An arrow from the sky announces the war to begin
Echoing the war-cries are flowing among the field
Deceased souls and forlesed spirits are singing for fighting men
Who does not resist to die for war!
From the moment we are born, we begin to die
The name is the sign bow down to your superior

Dark clouds came over lands,
Lands been ruined by the falsehood and lies
The ruins are standing on the dale of icy and strong breezes
Spirits are still wandering, still thinking to be alive,
Not bearing the truth of the fall

I'm climbing up on a mountainpath,
Despair flows to my core
The signs over the ruins are telling my story
At the sundown, in falling sun's blaze
I see a dark hole on the side of this mountain
I enter it's tender dusk, it suddenly feels like home!

Inside that cave where I feel I belong to,
It goes so deep but I feel that I have to
Go further down, silent path of mine
I dont know where I go and why I do this?
Elders said follow your instincts
Now to the deep caverns!

Dark clouds came over lands,
Lands ruined by the falsehood and lies
The ruins are standing on the dale of icy and strong breezes
Spirits are still wandering, still thinking to be alive,
Not bearing the truth of the fall
I escape from the chains of my past
I make my own destiny now
I run away, to the deep caverns down!


03. Caverns

I find the stairs leading into the mountain
I walked the stone stairs many nights and days
With no light, with no guide
Infinite steps echo along the cavernwalls

Still I'm getting down
With no food, with no drink
Starting to regret my thoughts of hope
And suddenly the stairs end.

Down there is a silver lake
In the light of that lake I can see again
The sight is eerily beautiful
In the lake is something attracting
I can't stop staring at it
It is feeding me
It gives me the joys I need

The reflexion whispers promises
It lures me to give myself for it
I fight back, but my mind gives up
I can feel no warmth of the sun on my skin
Nor frost in my bones anymore
No wind nor rain
I can see no dawn nor moon gleam
I can hear no birds singing nor smell the woods
But I don't care, I have met my god.

I found the path leading out of the mountain
I walked through these caves many nights and days
With no stars as my guide
Infinite cry echoed along the cavernwalls
Still I am getting beyond
The murky halls of this netherworld
Envenoming my thoughts of hope
And suddenly my blindness ends

I can feel no warmth of the sun on my skin
Nor frost in my bones anymore
No wind nor rain, I can see no dawn nor moon gleam
I can hear no birds singing or smell the woods
But I don't care, I am my god.


04. Maelstrom

Streams of memories runs across his eyes
As he sees a boulder falling from the skies
Dragged through dimensions, not knowing his fate
As toy of torture, more than a man can take.

As he was told:
Seed of agony spreads through you,
Scorching 'till theres nothing left.
Casting maelstrom in your head,
To your torment, theres no end.

Torn apart, then whole again.
No rest can come nor prayers tear down
Demons of all dark creations, masters will over limitations
I am you and you are me
We are one!
You thought you would now be alone?
Your hope has fallen.
I'm in your dreams, forever more
In wine you found your relief.

Bloodlust controls in your mind
Corrupts you 'till theres nothing behind
Maelstrom ruling in your head
With fiery rage you hide your pain
Tears of grief and revelation
Mourning heart and misdirection
Warrior's life with no decisions
Sworn not to set himself against the heavens

I know my past, but not what I will be
And it seems too useless to come
What I was and what I can't be now
Once running in downward circles
From depths of hades to deeper places
Sinking to sea of regret and shame
Betrayed the ones that laid their trust on me
So great is this pain, it can not been seen
Shards of my shattered soul
Seals me to my heart
Keeping me there until my end, alone.


05. Realm Of The Forsaken

I am forsaken, serving my kind with all the tools I have
Silent tears, they fall again and once again
My axe sweeps them away
Brutal, I know, I can see. But as it is, it's better you than me

Why do you defend a falling empire?
Become my knight, you'd be more than a servant.
Why to pretend this ain't but a fool's errand?
I'll show you a kingdom worth of your efforts.

Holy shadows gave a shade to these lands,
Elements of earth crushed in his hands
Now there's the soil for his plagued sanctity to grow
There is no man of the king in him anymore.

And so came the tempest and the cataclysm,
So came the divine shadow,
So came the day of conjuration,
So turned he my inner fire into smoking embers

So turned the valor into greed and sorrow
So turned the nights to days and days into
Endless rampage and horror

Why do you defend a falling empire?
Become my knight, you'd be more than a servant.
Why to pretend this aint but a fool's errand?
I'll show you kingdom worth of your efforts.

So came the tempest and the cataclysm
So came the divine shadow
So came the day of conjuration
So tell me the tales about this man without name
So turned he my inner fire into smoking embers
So turned the valor into greed and sorrow
So turned the nights to days and days
Into endless rampage and horror
So tell me the tales about this man called (death)

And they dare to ask where's my righteous gone
Can't they see that I am he who they pray
I am the priest, (I am the Light), I am the god
And great pain and suffer I shall bring
And from the grave, you shall come for me

And from the fires of shadow and lights of darkness I came
Approved as a herald of darkening light
And nothing can take away
What I have justified with these blind eyes

And soon, you will see, you will believe
When burning steel meets the flesh
Crippled and blind but still not dead
Wandering in the forsaken realm

And you dared to enter my realm, fool
My realm of light!
