01. We Will Never Die

Dawn of a new day the world is afire
Awake in emotional haze
You struggle to live then you lay down to die
A bolt in the wheels worn away
How long can we hold out?
A shallow game that plays on every
Day to please our kings
Our lives held by their strings
Turn on the light let your eyes crystallize
Your view set by just what they say
A color to sway - don't believe his lies
The angel's a demon disguised
How much more can you take?
Rise up and claim deliverance from
All this tyranny
Just look and you will see
Devils play
Sadistic games
For the world to see
Shall we let them claim
Their victory?
No we won't

[Chorus:]
Freedom shall survive - tonight
Blind lead the blind but
We will never die
Free yourself from lies - tonight
Open your eyes 'cause
We will never die
Now is the chance for us all to strike back
Alive with vainglory for change
A brave new world is at our constrain
So brace yourself for the attack
No more will we give in
A strength breaks through, a phoenix rises
Up to face the day
To never back away
Angels pray
To lift the chains
From morality
Shall we rise now to
Our victory?
Yes we will

[Chorus:]
Freedom shall survive - tonight
Blind lead the blind but
We will never die
Free yourself from lies - tonight
Open your eyes cause
We will never die

[Solos]

[Chorus:]
Freedom shall survive - tonight
Blind lead the blind but
We will never die
Free yourself from lies - tonight
Open your eyes cause
We will never die


02. The Alchemist

"...and... from the essential saltes of humane dust
a Philosopher may... call up the shape of any dead
anscestor..."
[Borellus]

Hidden away
A dark legacy
Unearths itself
Just for me
Secrets untold
My ancestors world
Brought back to life
Alchemy
My reflection in the canvas
Staring back at me
A portrait hiding knowledge
From forgotten centuries
Written in demonic texts
I'd conjure up the dead
But what I thought I could control
Took hold of me instead

[Chorus:]
Under control
From beyond space and time
Slowly it will drain away
My life
I see his face
Like a mirror to mine
The Alchemist will return
He will return
Oh but I shall be gone
Deep in the earth
I found his work
Frozen in time
Now I see
Ashes of man
An ungodly plan
Risen to life sorcery
What did I uncover
Tell me, what did I just see?
Murals paint remains of
Some bizarre monstrosity
Following the dragon's head
He rose up from the dead
A living corpse reborn again
From which I can't defend

[Chorus:]
Under control
From beyond space and time
Slowly it will drain away
My life
I see his face
Like a mirror to mine
The Alchemist will return
He will return
Oh but I shall be gone

[solo]

Now my time is ending
In a realm of misery
A portrait brought to life by
Supernatural mystery
With my dying breath
Hear my warning I have said:
"Don't call up what cannot be brought down"

[Chorus:]
Under control
From beyond space and time
Slowly it will drain away
My life
I see his face
Like a mirror to mine
The Alchemist will return
He will return
Oh but I shall be gone


03. A Soul Divided

"The fear of blood tends to create fear for the flesh."
Since my birth, haunting visions
Have occurred to me
A strange power
Controlling my destiny
Burned in the fire
But my blackened soul has remained
My dark desire
Will infect this mortal plane
Lying here, left for dead
Bandaged and alone
A separate half I'll create
To undermine their throne
Feel your aggression
The taste of my hate inside of you
Feeds my obsession
Until the time you set me free
This was meant to be

[Chorus:]
Searching in my mind
Answers I seek to find
Oh to know the truth
Why my nightmares have
Come to life
How can I go on
Left to be on my own
Waiting for the day
To close my eyes and leave this
World... alone?
Remember me, your true self
Its who you must become
You and I, are one and the same
The Chosen One
Rock turn to rust
My minions rise and humanity
All turns to dust
None will ever stop my insanity
Banish it to the void
Seal your fate at once
Let the light take you in
See it through
I am immortal
Even if I'm wiped away
I can't be stopped, no
My influence has spread
Your kind is dead

[Chorus:]
Searching in my mind
Answers I seek to find
Oh to know the truth
Why my nightmares have
Come to life
How can I go on
Left to be on my own
Waiting for the day
To close my eyes and leave this
World... alone?

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Searching in my mind
All the answers now are mine
Now I know the truth you're
Still a part of me
Now can I go on
A soul divided now made whole
Waiting for the day
To close my eyes but I am
Not alone!
Waiting for the day
To close my eyes but I am
Not alone


04. Distant Tides

Here I stand watching
The crash of the water parching
For the unknown
Beyond this violent shore
The deep of the gaping void
Will surely swallow you whole
Return is no option, only death
By the shadows of the dark
And every night
I dream of foreign lands
Unconscious memories
On golden shores
It's haunting me, calling me

[Chorus:]
Take me
Beyond the horizon
My destiny
Into the sea
Take me
The distant tides
Of my memory
Beckon to me
Now I stand wondering
Shall I risk my life for a dream
Still its so pure
I must find what lies beyond
The force of the ocean winds
Is sure to tear you down
Return give up all hope, you'll be under
By the light of the dawn
And every night
I dream of paradise
An ancient legacy
The crystal spheres
I've got to get back to it

[Chorus:]
Take me
Beyond the horizon
My destiny
Into the sea
Take me
The distant tides
Of my memory
Beckon to me
In the deepest of my dreams
I see it now
A phantom image etched into my mind
Now there's no turning back
I've made my choice
To sail to that legendary place
Or to my death

[Solo]

[Chorus x2]


05. Northern Sky

The aftermath of the war
This is what I've been fighting for
They all fell by my hand
But what's it signify
How can I justify
On my last day, I'll make my stand
Infidels and heretics
Of this land I've cleansed
Some say I'm a murderer
But I've only followed my command

[Chorus:]
The Light - In the Northern Sky
It shines - Burning in my eyes
The Light - Guiding me back home
I will return someday
So lead me out into the fight
For my lord I'd give my life
On this eve, thy will be done
Their temples burning down
Their flag torn to the ground
I do believe this battle's won
Blasphemers I've crucified
Of their blood I've shed
Tonight again I ride out to the battlefield
For their fucking heads

[Chorus:]
The Light - In the Northern Sky
It shines - Burning in my eyes
The Light - Guiding me back home
I will return someday
In my mind I see their eyes
Men, women, children terrified
What if I'm wrong, how will I know?
The right path will someone show...
Never to be
Eternally
Banishing me
Straight to Hell...
Blasphemers I've crucified
Of their blood I've shed
Tonight again I ride out to the battlefield
For their heads...

[Chorus:]
The Light - In the Northern Sky
It shines - Burning in my eyes
The Light - Guiding me back home
I will return someday
