1. INTROITUS

(Instrumental)




2. SECOND SIGHT

I foresee ages of chaos,
But my ordeal has yet just started
For these ominous signs,
Are bound to plague me
Haunt for centuries to come,
My healing incantations
Are destined for failure
My unremitting warnings and threats
Will go unheeded, such is my curse.
Why should it be incumbent upon me
To redeem their faults ?
You, The one who spurns the past Are now,
But worthy to be last.
Thy choices are errors;
I shall thus abandon thou
To thy gloomy fate.
I can see the future In the light of the past.
I cannot stop this ineluctable doom
From raining over the world.
Alas, this obnoxious portend
Will turn out to be abiding truth.
From time immemorial,
Man has taken refuge in oblivion.
They've exchanged there future for the present enjoyment.
Nothing will change,
History has set
Her implacable march into motion.
There will be no escape.
You, The one who spurns the past
Are now, But worthy to be last.
Thy choices are errors;
I shall thus abandon thou To thy gloomy fate.




3. CHOSEN

[Verse 1]
I'm lost in nowhere, I cannot see
What's inside of me
Some changes appear I can feel,
I'm getting alive

[Bridge]
My eyes are wide,
Opened to this brand new world,
I'm not supposed to bleed

[Refrain]
Only my eyes can see your world, like it is,
Blinded by innocence, see the moon fading out to black
Leave out your mind
And if I am the chosen one, I will try
And making you understand, the silence can sometimes be your friend
Whisper your fears

[Verse 1]
Winter's breath leaves a cold leaf on my face
My believing thoughts,
Decrease in shapes of ghostly sadness
I've failed out of weakness

[Bridge]
My eyes are wide,
Opened to this brand new world,
I'm not supposed to bleed

[Refrain]
Only my eyes can see your world, like it is,
Blinded by innocence, see the moon fading out to black
Leave out your mind
And if I am the chosen one, I will try
And make you understand, the silence can sometimes be your friend
Whisper your fears




4. THE STRINGLESS VIOLIN

Now the time has come to face, my untold fears
Every waking hour, drained me through the years
So that I'm not one with myself my strength, my gift
Is destined to be forgotten
I have seen the world begin,
In the mirror of the past
I pray the life giving force
Still holds the strength, to last
As I lay dying
I understand,
The reason for my life
My fear slips away, the new world begins.
In a darkened corner
The horror that waits for me prey's on my only success
Save my innocence
Keep the darkness from my door
I have seen the world begin,
In the mirror of the past
I pray the life giving force
Still holds the strength, to last
As I lay dying
I understand,
The reason for my life
My fear slips away, the new world begins.




5. FROM MY SLEEP... TO SOMEONE ELSE

[Verse]
Sometimes Morpheus's waiting,
For my dreams to make me realize,
How alone I can feel, in my suffers,
How fragile I am.

Who's controlling myself,
My tears are falling,
I'll never be the same,
Open my window to real world,
And let me go...

[Chorus]
And by the dawn I'll know,
If I'll rest in my sorrow.
To breathe to kiss, I'll need
To live my life forever.
I am you are me,
I am my own enemy,
I'm frightened by my will,
Can't you hear my appeal ?

[Verse II]
Today's a new season,
Do I have lost, all of my reason?
The blackened sky's awaits
The judgement of my lifeless fate.

My eyes slowly opening,
And I just feel like nothing has changed,
I 'll have to accept truth,
I am condemned to cry

[Chorus]
And by the dawn I know,
I will rest in my sorrow,
To burn, to shout, I will
Not live this life forever,
I am you are me
I am my own enemy,
But for no long I'm sure,
By myself I will cure.




6. PROMISES

[Verse]
I've been waiting so long,
To see the moon rising by your side,
How many days, since you're gone

I've cried so many times,
But I've spent so many hours to hide,
The tears I had in my mind

[Bridge]
When will I see you again,
Give me a last chance to make
Love, with you forever and ever again,
I miss you,

[Chorus]
I can't feel pain anymore,
I'm just lost in a world of sorrow,
But I will wait the hour
To set your heart on fire

[Verse]
Mountains of ice i will cross
Fountains of gold I will find,
To give you some presents,
As precious as you

In endlessly I will shout,
Your name in the silence of night,
To exorcise my thoughts, as a prayer

[Bridge]
When will I see you again,
Give me a last chance to make
Love, with you forever and ever again,
I love you,

[Chorus]
I can't feel pain anymore,
I'm just lost in a world of sorrow,
But I will wait the hour
To set your heart on fire




7. SEVEN LANDS OF SIN

Golden Tears
Form from my eyes,
The blast of sand on my face
Marks the beginning of my punishment.
But now it is too late to regret.
Wandering the labyrinth of tears
Scaling the pyramids of despair,
The gods have now decided my fate
I have to go through the seven lands of sin.
The breath of air
Gets heavier and heavier.
My body and soul
Are torn apart in turn.
Beholding the infernal ballet
Of the roaring elements
I'm left facing my fate
Like a helpless slave.
Wandering the labyrinth of tears
Scaling the pyramids of despair,
The gods have now decided my fate
I have to go through the seven lands of sin.
Encounter with the Wind God
I yearn for conquest and blood
Once again I become a warrior
I shall not put up
With this sanction without rising up
Only blood will tell, pure or tainted,
Whose decision, will go unheeded.
The chaotic power of steel
Has just marked its boundary.
I fall, overwhelmed with pain,
Evil shall never prevail again.
Eternal Downfall
My agony shall linger
I beg for no mercy;
The six remaining lands of sin
That's where I'll wander
Bound with rage and dignity.




8. PANEM ET CIRCENCES (JAPANESE BONUSTRACK)

All we've done is provide them
With food and mindless entertainment;
They easily renounced their liberty.
Hence deprived of will of their own,
Lobotomised, forced into docility,
They were turned into obsequious slaves.
We've taciltly accepted this preposterous situation
In the name of that accursed social cohesion
Now they will tolerate no subversion
Retaliation is out, of the question.
They've insidiously concealed the truth
Ostensibly in the cause of Equality:
We've been coaxed into lethal apathy,
Desperately clinging to an abject safety.
Loathing our predicament in this inimical world,
Stultfied, we are unable to regain our blighted hopes.
We've taciltly accepted this preposterous situation
In the name of that accursed social cohesion
Now they will tolerate no subversion
Retaliation is out, of the question.




9. IN NOMINE...

Your grace was the key to cast our sins.
In a world of sorrow and despair
So that one day we'll jin him
Rise eternal filled prayer Ave Maria
The voice, of thou
Forever In our hearts we rejoice your sacred words.
Betrayed by the victims of desire On an endless journey to paradise
If you obey this evil, Your reward will be sacrifice.
Ave Maria The voice, of thou
Forever In our hearts we will pray for all of our sins Ave Maria
The voice, of thou
Forever
In our hearts we rejoice your sacred words.
Ave Maria
The voice, of thou
Forever
In our hearts we will pray for all of our sins
