1. The Path To Enlightenment

Strange are the things we place our beliefs in
My apprehensions tear down the walls of the temple

The dollar signs that you crave
Mark the extent of your faith

Strange are the things we choose to believe in
My apprehensions tear down the walls of the temple

I'll never fit in, no faith to believe in
My resignation tears down the walls of the temple

Your cash betrays your true worth
Obtain your garden on Earth

Profane is the wealth that you believe in

Since you can't be wrong, shield your eyes from the sun
Its light will expose the poverty of your soul

Your wealth cannot save
This sacrament that will fade
Your opulence has no worth
You've sold your soul on this earth

And I'll break from your hold
My life cannot be bought and sold
This truth you will never get
And now you're so far in debt

And I'll break from your hold
My life cannot be bought and sold
This truth you will never get
And now you're so far in debt




2. Conundrum

I confide
Drowning in this suicide
I can be free
My world won't cease to be

Hold out your hand
I'm half of who I am
The sky won't follow me
My heart is crying
The earth won't swallow me
I sit in silence

All its splendor
Hear it crying
All its longing
Will be absolved




3. Earth's Answer

Hey, will the world turn upon me
Will the soul survive ultimately
Oh, will peace ever be found
When I drag my feet on hallowed ground

And I don't want to know what the future will hold
And I don't want to pray because I'm lost anyway

Hey, will the pain follow me there
Will I turn my back on despair
Oh, will the sun shine upon me
When the body dies, is the soul set free

And I don't want to know what the future will hold
And I don't want to pray because I'm lost anyway

Because your mind can close you in
And seclusion becomes a friend
I won't walk away
And my eyes can't fool me
When your world seems at an end
There's no reason to pretend
That things will be okay
And my eyes can't fool me

To your soul
I say, let it go

Because your mind can close you in
And seclusion becomes a friend
I won't walk away
And my eyes can't fool me




4. Visions Of The Daughters Of Time

All life moves closer to death
Hold on to just one last breath
We don't know what time holds
Do you fear what's out there

We cling to the things of this earth
Trace your steps back to your birth
We don't know what time holds
We can't face this one fate

So I pray
One more day

I feel the pain, hold on to me in the night
I feel alive, don't let it end, give me life

Does time move in a straight line
I'll stand still or lag behind
Count the days till your fate
Hold on to what kills you

I'll awake
One more day

I feel the pain, hold on to me in the night
I feel alive, don't let it end, give me life

I can never walk away, I'm caught here forever
You can never follow me expecting to fly
All I've ever dreamed about is leaving forever
I am like the serpent who tries to devour itself

I feel the pain, hold on to me in the night
I feel alive, don't let it end, give me life

I feel the pain, hold on to me in the night
I feel alive, don't let it end, give me life

I can never walk away, I'm caught here forever
You can never follow me expecting to fly
All I've ever dreamed about is leaving forever
I am like the serpent who tries to devour itself
Itself...




5. Now Is The Winter

The toll of my deep inner life
Will force this world to make amends
I know that you've lost your way
Your empty life will never save you
You'll melt away from here

My own decline
Brings you to mind

The toll of my deep inner life
Will force this world to make amends
I know that you've lost your way
Your empty life will never save you
You'll melt away from here

My own decline
Brings you to mind




6. Lucifer In Starlight

And the stars burn for me
And the night is my only friend
I should rule this
I'm the master of so many men
So lonely
Been alone for too many years
So wretched
To suffer the mortal man's fears

This world was made to mock me
The human race has damned me
I become the lies they speak

Won't you join me in my anguish
Won't you comfort me in this abyss
Desire of me, satisfy me, I'm yours
Crucify me like the one that you love

I'll watch this world burn
I'll watch this world burn

Won't you join me in my anguish
Won't you comfort me in this abyss
Desire of me, satisfy me, I'm yours
Crucify me like the one that you love

And the stars burn for me
And the night is my only friend
I should rule this
I'm the master of so many men
So lonely
Been alone for too many years
So wretched
To suffer the mortal man's fears




7. The Black Ones

Walk the path of the righteous ones, yeah
Don't come home to pray
Been on my feet for ten days now, baby
Just follow me, take my hand

The Black Ones will shine on tonight
The Black Ones will rise to new heights
The Black Ones will shine on tonight
The Black Ones will suffer through life

Can you talk with the demons, honey
Fall on mortal knees
Speak in tongues with the ones you love now
Drink with the spirits that have blessed you

The Black Ones will rise to new heights
The Black Ones will suffer through life
The Black Ones, their souls will thrive
The Black Ones will shine on tonight

The Black Ones will rise to new heights
The Black Ones will suffer through life
The Black Ones, their souls will thrive
The Black Ones will shine on tonight




8. Awakening The Colossus

All of the longing
Condensed in this place and time
I invoke you, O spirits, crawl inside
Then awaken my conscience
Lain dormant for all this time
And feed the despair that pervades my life, yeah

In the hold of a nightmare
I see truth in their words and lies
And beauty appears in sorrow's guise
So caught in the moment
We ignore the passing of time
And mistake the empty for the sublime, yeah

Oh, my savior
Give value to these misdeeds
In sin you bathe me
Holy
So I say that the father lies
And my dreams will betray me tonight

Obey the scourge of night
May darkness bring sight
I welcome your grace
Upon this night

All of the longing
And thoughts scribed in soothing fire
The ashes and smoke breed my desire
Abject and misshapen
To you I give all that I'm worth
My swarthy children of the earth, yeah

Oh, can these words be given shape
Oh, does the fool acknowledge fate
I've awaken the monster
The one that exists in my mind
In fear I behold the apparent divine
It grants me one vision
The mother in death giving birth
To the swarthy children of the earth, yeah

Oh, our savior
Pour deep within me
In blackness forsake me
Holy

So I say that the father lies
And my dreams will betray me tonight, yeah

Breathe slightly
Sleep soundly
All through this night
Breathe slightly
Sleep soundly
All through this night

I'm under its spell
I am too small
To try to resist the Ancient One's call
Will you be with me when I fall
I'm under its spell
I am too small
To try to resist the Ancient One's call
Will you be with me when I fall
I'm under its spell
I am too small
To try to resist the Ancient One's call
Will you be with me when I fall




9. Proverbs Of Hell

So I pray now to the mother of all lies
Under the holy mountain, I see through her disguise
In the smoke of the afterlife, I dream with fallen gods
Chastised by heathen eyes, our human form is lost

I dream of time
And the withering of all mankind
In anguish sleep
Silently

The stench of life clings to my flesh
The redemption of my soul brings rest
Will the rapture ever cease
Will the visions die
Enjoy the solace found in the absence of mankind

So I dream now with the spirits of the lost
Divine hallucinations, I am one with the gods
Under the holy ground, my energy survives
Exhale the breath of life in the hall of empty eyes

I dream of time
And the withering of all mankind
In anguish sleep
Silently

Sometime near the end
I traveled amongst unknown men
They drug me
They bring peace
I will call the earth my home
I will follow where the shadows may roam

I dream of time
And the withering of all mankind
In anguish sleep
Silently

I dream of time
And the withering of all mankind
In anguish sleep
Silently

The stench of life clings to my flesh
The redemption of my soul brings rest
Will the rapture ever cease
Will the visions die
Enjoy the solace found in the absence of mankind

Sometime near the end
I traveled amongst unknown men
They drug me
They bring peace
I will call the earth my home
I will follow where the shadows may roam

So I pray now to the mother of all lies
Under the holy mountain, I see through her disguise
In the smoke of the afterlife, I dream with fallen gods
Chastised by heathen eyes, our human form is lost




10. Journey To The Orange Island

This mystic voyage
Transcending space and time
This journey ends within my mind

All thoughts turn inward
Enter this world sublime
Where I exist within my mind

And the laws of the earth mean nothing to those
Who leave this world far behind
And the words that I speak are my own again
When I leave this all fall behind

This mystic voyage
Transcending space and time
This journey ends within my mind

All thoughts turn inward
Enter this world sublime
Where I exist within my mind

And the laws of the earth mean nothing to those
Who leave this world far behind
And the words that I speak are my own again
When I leave this all fall behind




11. Lotus Eaters

The sun sets for the final time, the night feels fine
And we walk in the distant shadows to the end of time
We are one with the moonlit ocean, it ignores our sins
Baptized in its healing waters, the new world now begins
It says, hold on, hold on now to the things that seem unreal
Don't let go of the love you feel

Yeah, I watched the sun die today
I sat alone as the light slipped away
And I know the earth becomes mine today, yeah
And the moon still shines from so far away

The love that keeps me here will never disappear
I won't fade away
And the earth and sea are mine
The sun may never shine
I won't fade away

The sun sets for the final time, the night feels fine
And we walk in the distant shadows to the end of time
We are one with the moonlit ocean, it ignores our sins
Baptized in its healing waters, the new world now begins
It says, hold on, hold on now to the things that seem unreal
Don't let go of the love you feel

Yeah, I watched the sun die today
I sat alone as the light slipped away
And I know the earth becomes mine today, yeah
And the moon still shines from so far away

The love that keeps me here will never disappear
I won't fade away
The earth and sea are mine
The sun may never shine
I won't fade away

Hope will live on, within this love song
I know it's not real, yeah
The earth will still spin and time cannot end
I know it's not real

Hope will live on, within this love song
I know it's not real, yeah
The earth will still spin and time cannot end
I know it's not real
