1. FLOODGATE OF ACROPOLIS

(Intro)




2. DARK PALACE OF WATERFALLS

(Solo – Martin)

A love that could not be saved.
Ended in a tragic way.
All because of what you done.
Look around it's your kingdom come.
A telltale heart you broke.
Their tears becoming a mote.
Haunted by your carnal sin.
You have the key let yourself in.

Chorus:
The dark palace of waterfalls.
Oceans of tears flood it's halls.
The chandlers are made of rain.
A dower of remorse for you to gain.

There's nothing you could do,
To bring my love back to you.
Your heart was just too cruel.

As you sit on your chair and cry.
Your startled by the thunder.
All dressed up but no man will show.
Your gown soaked it pulls you under.

Playing the part of Guinevere,
You thought you could have it all.
But with the secrets you kept you were doomed to fall.
The men you held tight one in your heart the other in bed.
The kisses you stole the double life you lead.

Chorus:

Drowning in a valley of despair.
Scorned by those painful years.
I want so much to make amends.
Find myself prisoner of my fears.

On your head sits a crown on wet hair.
A throne of cold stone washed bare.
Like the love he once held for you.
But you couldn't keep your vow true.
Meaningless was very word your troth.
Trapped now, your heart to this abode.
Made your own personal hell.
When your tears had shed and fell.

(Solo – Addams)

Chorus:

(Solo – Addams)




3. HORIZON'S END

As the fog clears we hit the land.
Shields and swords in callused hands.
Storm the village, burnt to the ground.
A city of life now a burial mound.

Chorus:
Trans Atlantic boat men.
Seafaring fighting hoard.
Guided by the blade and axe,
To the shores of this new world.
Tired, cold and hungry.
Hope and wills that just won't bend.
They found themselves in a new land.
Far beyond the horizon's end.

We claim this land as our own.
This mighty mission we will fulfill.
Iron verses wood and stone.
These savages lined up for the kill.

Chorus:

4. THE GIFT

As I wake from a deep slumber,
There sits the angel Gabrielle.
He's so pale, yet a sight to see,
His lips so soft greet me.

This dark mysterious gift,
I've bestowed thee with just one kiss.
My lips kiss thy naked flesh,
As we entwine with the sheets.

He has cursed me with images,
Only tortured souls would want to see.
This gift he has placed on to me,
As he cums deep inside of me.

Hoping now this is just a dream,
Wish to forget but will always remember.
For this is now my worse nightmare,
Come to realize this is my reality.

Roses have decayed just by touch,
Everything he touches seems to die.
He has taken advantage of me,
Now his face, no longer I want to see.

I have come unto thee,
Gazed by how you sleep?
I'm now your fantasy,
And yet your remorse.

He has cursed me with images,
Only tortured souls would want to see.
This gift he has placed on to me,
As he cums deep inside of me.

(Solo - Martin)

You have destroyed me,
You will never set me free.
You have become my worst enemy,
You have taken my everything.




5. IN GOD'S EYE

On this night of Beltain Eve,
In a clearing, surrounded by trees.

(Solo - Martin)

The Hare Moon glows from behind a cloud,
Like my body, covered with a white shroud.
Man to woman, woman to man,
In a circle my coven mates stand.
This ritual, this night, in Otherworld light.
The divine marriage that is called the Great Rite.
All clothed in the cool night mist.
My Lord blesses me with a Five-fold kiss.

Lay down skyclad in front of the altar.
Let me kiss your lips of holy wine.
Tonight we shall embody the divine,
For all acts of love and passion are sacred in Gods' Eyes

On by back, I lay on the sand,
With my body for a pentagram.

(Solo - Martin)

With our energies reaching their peak,
My Lord kneels down between my feet.
Invocation begins, the chalice beside me.
In the air the sounds of all that is free.
With reverence, perfect love and perfect trust,
Off into the night, our coven mates leave us.

Alter of mysteries manifold
The sacred circle's secret point.
Thus do he assign to me as of old,
With kisses on his lips anoint.

Tonight the candles burn for us my love.

Let's make love in the moonlight.
Let us make love, let us make love, let us make love.




6. DEAD RIVER

(Instrumental)




7. SEEPED THROUGH

Wandering the night,
To please the appetite.
Gaze into the midnight sky.
One last kiss before you close your eyes.

(Solo - Martin)

A glance into the mirror,
Seeing that I bare the mark.
Going into a state of shock,
Nothing seems to be getting clearer.
The blood has soaked through,
Every broken pore.
A nightmare coming true.
Your mark becoming sore.

Eye sight is getting sharper.
Hearing things never heard before.
Every night you become the stalker,
Not knowing what's in store.
When you close your eyes to sleep,
Don't know what you'll eat.
Eventually it seems to hit you.
You're becoming something else.

Chorus:
Night after night it's the same.
Becoming what you'll forever despise.
A nightmare coming true.
Your mark is impure and seeped through.

Wanting to end your life,
Knowing you don't have it in you.
Howling at the darkened sky,
A creature transformed.

Chorus:

(Solo - Martin)




8. HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF

Dark in the city, the Old Port's a wire.
Fog on the lighthouse makes the ocean on fire.
I know you want me, give me a sign.
And catch my breath even closer behind.

In touch with the ground,
I'm on the hunt I'm after you.
I know you're around, I'm lost in the crowd,
And I'm hungry like the wolf.
Straddle the line, in discourse and rhyme.
I'm on the hunt, I'm after you.
Mouth is alive with juices like wine,
And I'm hungry like the wolf.

Stalk in the forest, too close to hide.
I'll be upon you by the moonlight side.
High blood drumming only our skin is so tight.
You feel my heat, I'm just a moment behind.

In touch with the ground,
I'm on the hunt I'm after you.
A scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found.
And I'm hungry like the wolf.
Strut the line, in discourse and rhyme.
I howl at the Moon, I'm after you.
Mouth is alive, thirsting inside,
And I'm hungry like the wolf.

Hungry like the wolf.
Hungry like the wolf.
Hungry like the wolf.

Solo - Martin)

Burning the ground, I break from the crowd,
I'm on the hunt I'm after you.
A scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found.
And I'm hungry like the wolf.

Strut on the line. It's discourse and rhyme.
I howl at the moon I'm after you.
Mouth is alive, thirsting inside,
And I'm hungry like the wolf….




9. FATHOMS APART

(Instrumental)




10. WRONG SIDE OF THE MIRROR

I look into the mirror,
To see the reflection shatter.
To a life that has no meaning,
A day that just won't go right.
Visions of you flash before my eyes.
Are you still here by my side?
I get caught in mental distress.
Why do these nightmares never end?

Chorus:
I'm stuck in a place that I'll never leave.
I'm trapped within a fantasy.
A place filled with dark torment.
A world that was given to me.

I can no longer see the light,
Where did the day go?
Blackness surrounding me.
Wake me for I fear I'm dreaming.
A soul that forever has been lost,
I've noticed can never be found.
I've been lost for years.
When will I find my way?

Chorus:

(Solo - Martin)

I'm stuck within my past,
It keeps dragging me down.
I try to get away.
I've find there's no way out.

I can no longer see the light,
Where did the day go?
Blackness surrounding me.
Wake me for I fear I'm dreaming.
I have been condemned.
All this life I've been denied,
Of all that is pure and true,
To stay on the wrong side of the mirror.

Chorus:

(Solo - Martin)




11. SOLACE OF THE SHADOWS

When I'm gone I'll become the trees.
When I'm dead I'll become the sky.
The tears you've wept will be the rain that pours down.
Just like the rain, your tears will eventually dry.
When you look around I will be there.
You can't ignore death, it's all around you.

Chorus:
In the solace of the shadows, a figure appears.
Reach out your hand to me as I pull you near.
The image just disappears.
A void that was once filled,
Now gone from my soul forever.
You can't replace something,
Something that's no longer there.
An emotion that I can no longer bare.

(Solo - Adams)

Loneliness haunts only when in silence.
Something is there but can't really see it.
It sneaks up when you least expect it.
It's like a nightmare but it's reality.
Do you believe in life after death?
What happens to the restless soul?
Feel constant chills upon your flesh.
Is there someone there right beside you?

An image of someone close still can scare the soul.
A walk in the graveyard, Wonder if there's wandering ghost.

Sometimes it comes without knowing.
When I'm gone will I always be remembered?
Will you recall the laughter, will you recall the tears?
Keep the good memories locked in tight.
Keep them in your heart and mind.
Will you savor today, hoping you'll see tomorrow.
Just remember all those close to you.
Those close who sleep within the Earth.
Who have become a part of Mother Nature once more.
Forget me not, remember who I was.
Not perfect, yet different, with a different mind.
Not like yours yet still forever mine.

Chorus:

(Solo - Adams)

(Solo - Martin)
