Now we have returned to the land of unseen Where the rivers flow back to the source Listen to your fears How could this be when you thought you would be free You're not the only one to question everything I sleep in the waters below I pray to the moon above Each thought is dirt and the matter of mind Is made of chains of 'who am I' I sleep in the waters below I pray to the moon above And remember ye shall see no brighter fire Than the flame that burns to ashes your desire

The crowns of gods and mortals wither Moons fade where constellations once shone Nameless aeons brought us hither Eternity beckons us on In the circle of time Black stars shine above In the circle of time Gods wait dead but dreaming Chance is all that brought us here Yet change is the source of our fear Hanging by a thread of by gone time Unaware of the dark of eternal night The Reason and Law are the bond of great lie The Silent Abyss speaks to me The lion greets the rising sun When Dog Star crowns equinox Awake now from denial Face the splendor of the coming storm
3.
I woke up in the land of denial It's true the guilt is all you care for Seeing you and the rest of your kind Wallowing in self-pity and mutual rape Makes me want to In the minds of the most judgemental men Among their memories nothing but pain and shame These then proclaim the law unto mankind These preach virtue, cowardice in every form Can you survive your deceit and your lies The game goes on, you're one more to fall I've traveled a million miles Guided by what you told me to despise But it's a coward's choice to leave love aside Only in fear that one day the end will come

The woods call my name Face covered in blood The spirits of the dead Stir by the rising sun The memory of fresh kill comes to me By the light of the moon You leave this world behind The wind takes your fear The sweet siren's song In the faint morning light The silver tears of dawn Wash away your fear To die we are born Beyond fragile consciousness The raging hunger lurks It makes my senses sharp Like razors in the night Cut your silken skin Your breath belongs to me
6.
And still you think you know who I am Despite all the things to you that I have shown And now you stand with your mouth open And wonder what kind of a man I am Your hands how to bind you choose and you cry When life puts you down with your face touching ground And whispers to your ear that now you are done But love, in the darkest moment I Wait for the day to come When you open your eyes and see your freedom in disguise To brave the forest, brave the stone Brave the burning fields of fire Is what you need to find your freedom in disguise Control what goes on in your minds eye See the truth when there's nothing to admire Sacrifice yourself for the greater good of the cause But love, can't you see why still I
7.
In the darkness you can find What you're looking for, just fumble blindly In life there comes a moment When everything you've done seems pointless And that's how it is in the greater scheme of things But it's a lie, after all, don't you know Blind yourself with hate and despair Drown under waves of mindless rage The evil inside and the thoughts so vile Blind yourself with hate and despair In the silence you can hear All the answers to the questions You didn't dare to ever ask
8.
This is how it begins, the last phase A thousand step descent into the unknown The words extend the rays of light From the shadows a new mind It's time for you to come before the light takes us Come, under the moon, come, before the light takes us And still you are at the back of my mind Creeping around, a poisonous thought My fingers touch the sky and it turns to blood Under an evil sign the shadows gather
9.
Time waits for no one So take what you can And you're waiting for a sign To show you all the reasons why When the shadows fill the sky It's the nightmares from your mind We are the last of our kind With no escape in sight It takes a life-time to learn Who you truly are Still you're waiting for a sign To show you all the reasons why We are the last of our kind Falling through darkness into the light
10.
07:13
From the desert of your mind dust-devils of doubt rise On the ground floor of thought bored watching life pass by Then you begin to realize all you've been told was a lie Tear down your madness The walls you built to keep me outside Take me into your arms The lines in the sand are fading Only you can save yourself Gods laugh while you try Desperation gives a meaning to every word and each sign Scared to death in case you fail you hide your thoughts deep inside Tear the veils of night Your soul free now let it fly Take me into your arms The daylight is failing Only you can save yourself Gods laugh while you try
