1. HYMNS TO THE SUN

(Instrumental)




2. WORSHIP THE SAVIOR

In vain are all efforts
Of judging the will of the mighty saviour!
Corrosion of earth is cloaked by words.
Today I see You At his feet,
Frustrate you never will The Almighty One!

"Worship the savior!"
"Worship the savior!"
Or die in inhuman pain
Or feel the wrath of Ra

Lost in a stream of godlike creatures,
Serving and lauding for eternal peace.
Today I see You At his feet,
Frustrate you never will The Almighty One!

From the Nile I hear too many prophesies to learn
About retribution of the Mighty One
"Feel the wrath of Ra!"
"We are to pray eternal!"
"Here comes the world damnation!"
"This is the end!"

For Gods you are a slave,
One from a tribe of slaves!
For freedom you can pray,
Only no need - you will get none!
Today I see You At his feet,
Frustrate you never will The Almighty One!

"Worship the savior!"
"Worship the savior!"




3. ARJUNA

Arjuna:
O, Lord! Stop my chariot
Between the two armies until i behold
Those who stand with me, eager for battle
And with whom i must engage
In this act of war!

Narrator:
Riding his chariot
between two vast armies,
Arjuna saw his brothers
And comrades on the opponent's side!

Arjuna:
Seeing my kinsmen,
Standing with the desire to fight,
My limbs fail and my mouth becomes dry,
The bow slips from my hand
And my skin intantly burns!

I don't wish to battle with my own blood
I'm not ready to commit a great sin
By striving to slay our brothers because of greed,
For the pleasure of the kingdom.

The Supreme Lord:
Do not become a coward, o Arjuna!
It does not befit you!
Shake off this weakness of your heart
And get up for battle!

You grief for those who are not worthy of grief
And yet speak the words of wisdom!
The wise grief neither for the living
And nor for the dead.
If you will not fight this righteous war
Then you will fail in your duties,
Lose your reputation and incur sin!

Arjuna:
By your grace my delusion is destroyed!
I have gaint knowledge,
My confusion is dispelled
I shal obey your comand...
I shall battle!




4. OASIS

Harsh lines of endless sands I meet on my way,
On my way to the oasis I seek
Closed are my eyes in protection from the blight,
Feasting on the fallen beasts, vultures cry...

Heat of wind!
Fire of earth!
Ancient gods!
Cloak the...

Oasis!
From mortal sight...

Trying to pave the way to my eternal goal,
This pool of godly fluid, juice, granting life
There is no passage for retreat,
Too this journey was for going back...

Further went the line of my sight,
I saw a God in the sky.
My humble soul, tired in it's cage,
Was now willing to leave!
From now I travelled without
the burden of flesh
For I was free in my thoughts and will,
I could now reach the end...

Life's harder than that,
Dream is like reality.

Heat of wind!
Fire of earth!
Ancient gods!
Cloak the...

Oasis!
From mortal sight...

The taste of the holy essence gives me immortal
Life, I had dreamt of from the beginning of
All. as said by the gods, this life is not for
Mortal beings, and they will feel the pain of
Disgrace!




5. THE KISS OF BABYLON (ORPHANED LAND COVER)

Twisted ways blackened nights
Sin upon Sin, gone is the light
Doom shall befall them all
A Downward spiral they shall fall
The Three, all this they see
As they try to pass god's decree

Worshiping the gods
that demand lives and sacrifice
None but the blood of infants will suffice
Fallen sparrows fall as one into a grave
They are the souls of living men
that could not be saved.

"Walking the land we see
The sins of flesh and spirit flow
Bodies entwined a serpent's
leathel kiss of venom is bestowed
Our lord watches them fall -
He stands above you all"

"Son slaying father
A Cain's mark upon us all
Babylon's rising, cast from heaven
We see the angels fall
When will the heavens be alight
The seasons will re-unite"

"Ahavat hadasa al levavi nikshera
Ve'ani betoch gola paamay tzolelim;
Lu yesh reshut li a'ale ethabera
Toch she'arey zion asher hem nehelalim;"
