Anubis Gate

The Detached tracks

Lyrics


1. ON THE DETACHED

There's a point in time, and a space in time where the moons and suns entwine and balance
Every now and then silver beams escape and find their way to the heart of a man




2. FIND A WAY

I am enchanted by the tide
The mere anxiety for the ride

Find a way or make one to be heard
It's time to change

On backs of beasts we ride
Chaotic realms subconsciously defied
We're changing snowflakes into water
Bringing damaged cells to the slaughter

I'm on this quest to seek the truth
The scene is set for alteration
Using my powers of infinite youth
To dissolve the desolation
Find a way or make one to be seen
What's done can be undone

On backs of beasts we ride
Chaotic realms subconsciously defied
We're changing snowflakes into water
This journey's set to turn
All human conscience back to live-and-learn
Replacing liquid states with mortar

I am a soldier in the know
Leading a wishful path through the snow
with head held high

On backs of beasts we ride
Chaotic realms subconsciously defied
This journey's set to turn
All human conscience back to live-and-learn
Replacing liquid states with mortar




3. YIRI

[Bilao:]
Out of the desert sun
Cathedral vaults so immense
Might even make an emperor lose his stature

[The brother:]
Wait! There's something in the air
You might feel it yourselves
A different chemistry among the brothers

[Bilao:]
I am here to understand the words you're singing
I know I'm a stranger
As yet just a stranger to this circle

The song's beguiling
The brothers are smiling
The distant feeling's gone
The same reflections
Profound intentions
Have brought us closer

[The brother:]
Your proficiency in language increases our chance to map the unknown co-ordinates of our futures

[Bilao:]
How to penetrate the mystery of second sight
The words of a Yiri!
A lifetime of travel compositions

The song's beguiling
The brothers are smiling
United we'll be
Searching for answers
Merging to answer
The holy questions of life

Eyes looking down in prayer

The song's beguiling
The brothers are smiling
United we'll be
Searching for answers
Merging to answer
The holy questions
Searching for reasons
Merging to reason
The holy questions of life




4. LOST IN MYSELF

My weary soul's divided
I feel it questions all I am
All I am
The wavering inside it
A free man versus caged inhabitant on his own land
The mirrored face bewildered, a fierce contraction
Reaction

Lost in my self
Lack or wealth
Lost in my self and my mind

The skills that I've been given
A revelation?
Devastation?

Enforced eternity
Designed by destiny
My stand was never heard in this obscurity

Lost in my self
Lack or wealth
Lost in my self and my mind




5. DODECAHEDRON

Out here at the timeline at lightspeed I travel although my thinking's barely moving
I'm recharging my senses
Awaiting tomorrow
One more place in time

Just a flash and I'll be back on earth again
Building dreams for free men
Just a flash and I'll be part of life again
Anywhen

Out here at the timeline
The dodecahedron retains the history we're living
A second home for the detached with room for reflection
Out of space and time

Just a flash and I'll be back on earth again
Building dreams for free men
Just a flash and I'll be part of life again
Anywhen

I penetrate the aerosphere
My destination's drawing near
Through halls of myth and dreamy light
The noise, the sand, the building site

Just a flash and I'll be back on earth again
Building dreams for free men
Just a flash and I'll be part of life again
Anywhen




6. PYRAMIDS

Awaiting the sun
A monument of dreams to gaze upon
Tomorrow's foretold
A monument of grandeur will unfold

In this starry night I take a sight at these unworldly structures

In silence
I cross to other worlds
In my stargazing
There's an entrance to something more than this

Awaiting the sun
A monument of dreams to gaze upon
A new era's under way
Tomorrow's foretold
At the crucial break of day
A monument of grandeur will unfold

After ended warlike affairs we've turned our swords to plowshares

In silence
I tend to ask myself
What's eternal?
A delusion?
A fluid state of mind?

Awaiting the sun
A monument of dreams to gaze upon
When darkness turns to light
Tomorrow's foretold
A monument of grandeur will unfold
And it's reaching for the sky
Awaiting the sun
Awaiting the sun
Revealing's begun




7. OUT OF TIME

There's a fire within that may burn your skin
It can make you blind and leave the world behind
Every night we pray that our hearts be taken by these forces of magic some day
It may be today

Long time gone
My life was merely day by day
A lone crusade through self-denial and delay

The thought of something more kept me at war until my very mind was opened and out of time
Opened and out of time
When we spoke our words would take the form of a song
While joined in laughter and tears, my sense of time had disappeared

All the things we'd done meant nothing, once the ground we walked upon was replaced and out of time
Replaced and out of time

Replaced and out of time...
There's a light to guide us
Once we understand




8. BLOODOATH

From the urge to seek my sources
I travel to restore and bring myself to break down the door
I'm taken in by vicious forces to realms of death and horror
Submersion into the underworlds at war

Must face the madness though it hurts
Must face the blackness though it hurts

Mortal dread's become a drag on being one with my self

I seem to struggle with defences and the infinity of man threatened by the vulnerable "I am"
In every corner of my senses there's a will to alteration
It's been haunting me ad nauseam

Must face the madness though it hurts
Must face the blackness though it hurts

Mortal dread's become a drag on being one with my self

If someone's out there
I need a word for protection
And if you're out there this oath of blood is bonded by affection

Mortal dread's become a drag on being one with my self
Mortal dread's become a drag on being one with all else
Mortal dread's succumbed
Mortal dread's succumbed




9. AMMONIA SNOW

I look out, the moon is rising
The only light of my experiment:
Imprisonment

I lost myself
Lack of wealth
I lost myself and my mind

I needed time away to understand my deeds of yesterday
It's now a matter of repentance
This stay's about to turn my shady conscience back to live-and-learn
To find the meaning of existence

Engaged by deadly snowflakes
I face a long and painful destiny
Reality

I lost myself
Lack of wealth
I lost myself and my mind

I needed to address
Chaotic realms so easy to possess
I tripped and fell without resistance
This stay's about to turn
my shady conscience back to live-and-learn
To find the meaning of existence




10. OPTIONS-GOING NOWHERE

It's a flaw, it's a crime
Sadly I've been fooled by time

Thus dissolved by the rain the lethal shower of ammonia caught me unrestrained

Nothing left to repent
My vivid journey finally came to end
As the Sphere caved in and left me in vain

I'm going nowhere
Le me out, hear my prayer
I'm going nowhere
Can't stand up, I'm trying to return to yesterday but my voice is numb and it won't obey

Trains of thought through my mind
How could I have been so blind?

All I gained from my crusade was a premonition of my death only much too late

Every time, every place comes to life within the inner space 'fore my mind gives in
Exhausted by pain

I'm going nowhere
Le me out, hear my prayer
I'm going nowhere
Can't stand up, I'm trying to return to yesterday but my voice is numb and it won't obey

Waiting there in the wings
Knowing what the future would bring
Patiently she watched him go from retraction to deep sorrow
Disintegration began but sheltered under her wingspan
His old heart clung to the bit of life that once was substance
Saved in silence




11. A LIFETIME TO SHARE

Weightless in the morning light
I find myself awake
Vaguely I recall the night
My whole wide world at stake

I failed, she came
Broke into my game

In another time with blessing in her hand
She kneels before my bed and I'm supposed to understand

Somewhat older
Time weighs on her shoulders

No one can see all the worlds the have travelled
No on compares with their powers at hand
All of the pieces that puzzled their journey are now in position to land
No one can see it's a strange allegation
Detached with only a lifetime to share
The countdown has started for her expiration
A precious but mortal affair

Knowing that your hourglass has limited grains of sand defines our destiny
I won't part with repetition.
This is what I am
I choose infinity

I'll stay for long,
But some day I'll be gone

No one can see all the worlds the have travelled
No one compares with their powers at hand
All of the pieces that puzzled their journey are now in position to land
No one can see it's a strange allegation
Detached with only a lifetime to share
The countdown has started for her expiration
He's got all the time in the world to spare




12. THE END
