1. INTROITUS/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 unheard, 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'll 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.

Such is my curse!

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.




2. CHOSEN

I'm lost in nowhere, I cannot see
What's inside of me
Some changes appear I can feel,
I'm coming alive

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

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
To help you to understand, the silence can sometimes be your friend
Whisper your fears

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

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

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
To help you to understand, the silence can sometimes be your friend
Whisper your fears




3. PANEM ET CIRCENCES

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 subvertion
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 subvertion
Retaliation is out, of the question.




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/BASS SOLO

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...

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 ?

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

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

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

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

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

Mountains of ice i will cross
Fountains of gold I will find,
To give you a gift,
As precious as you

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

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

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




7. SEVEN LANDS OF SIN/GUITAR SOLO

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. THE MIRROR STAGE

What is that shape in front of me
Spying through the looking glass ?
This figure is haunting me,
Aping my every gestures,
Stealing my soul, my self,
The presence of menace is lurking
Behind the translucent surface

I can't face that figure
Who looks like me, like a twin.
Who is in the mirror,
The similarity,
It can't be me!

I can't acknowledge that individual;
That reflection in the mirror is not my Own:
The beholder may perceive the evil spark
In the clearness of the eye,
Mirroring the darkness of the heart,
The horror!
And yet who can it possibly be?

I can't face that figure
Who looks like me, like a twin.
Who is in the mirror,
The similarity,
I doubt it can be...




DISC 2

1. IMMIGRANT SONG

(Instrumental)




2. UNDERWORLD

Like the serpent crawling in filth
Murdering yourselves, feeded by spit
A darkened candle you have lit

Why all these sad smiles look so fake ?
Preaching the evil, providing death
Oh my sons, are you awake

How come your world is ruled by hate,
Unholy children in madness state
Chained to the suffering, guardians of Nihil
Blessed are the souls from Underworld

Facing the gates of my world,
Only the pure, the stainless eye
May enter or may die,
Paying the price for the blind

I feel like I've been abused,
A fool god, treated by slavery
The creator, bewitched by his ones
The servant of his child

Show me how,
You will find,
The final peace for your mind
As I watched you from above,
I'll let you rest in Underworld

Nature is dark, coldness is blowing
Shadows of ancient secrets surrounding,
Tears of the fallen angels whispering,
This minute is the last,

And as I dive into dead water,
I can hear the voice of a thousand sinners,
Trying to reach the distant border
Finally leaving their faith far behind




3. 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 journeyto 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
