Track Name: Eternity of Truth
We walked, eternally damned,
the original sin accompanied us.
In her eyes I looked for the reflection of reason,
abandoned by the sense, gathered into oblivion.
The escape was the hope.
But the majestic walls
crossed the rising saviour.
Never appeased desire,
to see the sun.
Within the limits of consciousness,
I seeked the eternity of truth.
Track Name: What Remains of Nothing
From ashes of my past,
my flight will rise again
Flaming red wings,
will recall you.
From ashes of my past,
my flight will rise again
Flaming red wings,
will recall you.
The bleeding red moon
stained us with mortal sin.

You've forsaken me,
Illusory light!

Without your false white hand,
I can't walk in the dark anymore.
My murderer was just unconsciousness.


The compass I dreamt,
spoke to me of my future.
Hoping you haven't awoken
Because of the desperate invocation!


In the innocence of your unconsciousness.
Wait for me, far away from the nightmare of reality.

The chosen day you will be awaken,
by the purifying molten rain!

From ashes of my past,
my flight will rise again
Flaming red wings,
will recall you.
From ashes of my past,
my flight will rise again
Flaming red wings,
will recall you.
The bleeding red moon
stained us with mortal sin.
Track Name: Silent Cage
SILENT CAGE

Imprisoned in my cage,
that they call my home.
Protected, safe and warm;
outside it's my hope.
Solitary silence,
I have never left these walls.
Hands in my hair
never waved by wind.
My mind can't give a sense
to the undefined colourful glimpses of light,
that can't be focused by my sight.


What lies beyond this still silence?


And when the stars appear,
You fade into the sunset,
And when the night is here,
you become a whispered scream.
And when the stars appear,
You fade into the sunset,
And when the night is here,
you become a whispered scream.

Often my memory is an enemy
that suffocates my dreams.

Only crazy thoughts,
across my mindless silly cage
Suffocate my throat.
How can I look inside the rain?

I will breathe your
endless symphonies,
I will hear your
quiet soundless breeze.
(x2)


I remember that time.
I remember the time when I was just a child,
no wonders, no questions, no “why?”.
But now I am tired of these fields,
I'm looking for something more real.
Voices in my head,
Voices in my head,
I can't forget what they said.

You will see the island of ice.
You will walk across the valleys
on paths that the ancestors
have never crossed.
You will see the last dawn,
You will follow shards of destiny
written in runes on the enchanted stone.

I can't forget what they said.

I remember my mother was dying,
It's when she told me to reach the sunrise.
I remember my father was crying,
I am sure that he couldn't realise.

While my mother trembled but smiled
I stared so deep in her eyes.
“Watch my eyes!”

I suddenly got what my mother had said.
Just one hope:
I must go.
Leaving this valley of sadness,
learning to listen to my veins,
I'll be able to smile in the darkness.
I'll be able to look in the rain.
But how can I leave myself?

But, thinking about my father and wife,
On the fence for leaving or staying.
I left.
Track Name: The Journey has Begun
I will lineup with you in the battlefield,
she's the phantom that I've dreamt of for so long,

If my fate is death then be it so,
In you I will find the peace I seek,
In Chaos the harmony will come for us,
and in the battle I'll regain my soul.

I've been waiting for you since I saw that innocent child,
watching me with a spark of dare in her eyes
"Are you worthy of being our guide?"
(x2)

We've waited for a long time,
today we will fight until we die!
The journey has begun,
We will ride towards the Sun!



For too long my hidden desires have flared up, my heart is burning,
allow me to fight with you,
from the distance I see the rising sun of hope:
it's rising for us.

You've waited for a long time,
but we haven't had the courage to answer your call.
We are ready for the oblivium we are ready to burn.

The dream of the thousand deceased bodies oppresses me,
but tonight we'll defeat the beast.
We'll drink the wine from the chalice immortality,
we'll create the legend from now on,
Goddess of War,
You were a harlot,
but now you can purify yourself with our victory.

But tonight
we will sing
and we'll dance
and we'll drink
'til the sun
pierces us
with its rays
and tonight
we'll have fun
anyway
anywhere
whenever
we're alive
or dead

But tonight
we will sing
and we'll dance
and we'll drink
til the sun
pierces us
with its rays
and tonight
we'll have fun
anyway
anywhere
wherever
in this world
or hell!

If my fate is death then be it so,
In you I will find the peace I seek,
In Chaos the harmony will come for us,
and in the battle I'll regain my soul.

I've been waiting for you since i saw that innocent child,
watching me with a spark of dare in her eyes
"are you worthy of being our guide?"
Track Name: Riding Towards the Sun
Gazing at the rising Lord
We immerse into bright harvests,
and ride.
We are riding towards the sun.

Soaring as having enchanted wings,
gliding so fast driven by the wind,
I leave my lies, in search of life.

Show me the origin of my dreams,
Reveal me the forgotten paradise,
oh let me cross the sacred line.

Our eyes
may they see the stars.
the skies
streaked by white pegasus.

But I can't see but cries!

Hellish flames burn in the skies
dripping blades, blinding chaos.

May your thousand suns lead me
and blind the souls of the damned
your rays enlighten my path

Are real the creatures that
crowl in my mind
or they're just madness?

I'm breathing the buds
that grow in the mornings
on my holy path

Our eyes
may they see the stars.
the skies
streaked by white pegasus

Gazìng at the rising Lord
We immerse into bright harvests,
and ride.
We are riding towards the sun.


Show me the origin of my dreams,
Reveal me the forgotten paradise,
Lead me where my hopes are life.

Bring me to the source of time
you, my visionary child,
hear me

My vain hope is to reborn at your side
please don't
ignore my cry.
Track Name: Desert of the Frozen Souls
THE DESERT OF THE FROZEN SOULS

Is this a mirage?

Crawling in a deaf scarlet sand-storm
A man with a white cloak appears.

“Welcome in the land of endless mourns
It's the Desert of the frozen souls!”.

That man starts whirling faster in his cloak
till it emptied of his body it quietly falls.
The wind stops shouting and spitting in my throat
In this sudden unreal hush, I hear their words.
Listen!

“Life's not what you recall,
but the tireless walk seeking for a response
cross the rivers of faith
let your mind go beyond mortal gates.”

“Why do you keep on repeating empty lullabies?”
“The only truth in black oceans of lies”
“Why do you say empty rhymes crying for the pain?”
“They're the reason why we're tied by these chains”
“If that's the truth, then, please, make it clear to me!”
“No, it's something you have to learn by yourself”
“Please! I don't want to be drowned in the mist”
“We must fade once again in the silence”
“Once again”
“I don't want to be drowned in the mist.
Please tell me what it means.
Don't leave me!
Oh God!”

Is this a mirage?

Writhing spirits in shaking ice globes
hit by the light of the sun.

But the warm can't reach their endless mourns.
It's the Desert of the Frozen Souls.

Eyes open wide that can't but looking straight,
their hope is only dying once again.

Trapped again in their transparent stones,
as I can't hear their mourns, they ignore my calls.
Listen!


“Life's not what you recall,
but the tireless walk seeking for a response
cross the rivers of faith
let your mind go beyond mortal gates.”
Track Name: Winged Maiden
A vortex appeared in the sand.
I fell into the abyss.
And the moon disappeared.
Save me Lord!

But the touch of her light hand saved me/ from sinking ìnto ash
freed my eyes from the dust
she came to save my life.

A winged maiden shone in front of my eyes
her outline was fringed by the moon.

She bent towards my lips.
And she bent.

The Phoenix enlightened the night.
The warmth of her body entered my dreams.

Then she whispered “We'll meet again when the time comes”.
That moment never came.

The winged maiden shone in front of my eyes
her outline was fringed by the moon.

Her outline was fringed by the moon.

The flare enlightened the night.
The warmth of her body entered my dreams.
Track Name: Vision of No Return
The sun burns with its last rays of hope.

And I am still roaming here
Between the light and dark
And I'm still wondering how
I wonder how to fly.

The whispers of the sons of the shadows were walking one step behind me
Too far to hear their thoughts, close enough to sense their breath.

The hidden corners of my thoughts
get lost in endless chaos

I can't recall her voice
She said: "The Sun will shine
when you cross the secret line"

I'm running towards you
further and further away
Its getting darker here
the light is fading out

"The Sun will shine
when you cross the secret line"

Chasing you,
yet you're always too far
the moment is too short
and walking on thin ice
my fear is the void

Now all I thought's not the same
So wait for me in the dream
in which you dream your life
One day I'll come for you.

Dear Illusion
you're mine
I wait for my future
but I'm afraid

Wherever I will go
I know I won't return

"The Sun will shine
when you cross the secret line"

I promised I'd return
but memory's fading away

My phoenix
renew my memory
for my dream.
Track Name: Horizon Seeker
I've been following you all my life long, horizon.
The sand in my hourglass is almost consumed, my Lord.

I lost my parents and my wife. Did I care?
They've always been blind.
They couldn't hear your far morning call.
People said I was insane.

Lies!
Lies!

All of my time, I offered to you.
To reach you my only aim.
All of my time, I offered to you.
To touch you, my only aim.

You were the slope of a hill,
Creator of man dreams,
You shadow of a soul,
You only thing I desired.
Obscure profile of dark mountains
stricken by the storm
Sea diving in the clouds,
You have been everything.

Are you real?
Or just a phantom of my dreams?
Can you feel?
Or you're blinded by your beams?
Look at me!
For one moment watch my tears !
Don't you see?
Why do you escape?
Are you laughing at me?
Were you laughing when

I followed you like a comet's wake.
In the morning grass dank by your tears,
your imprint was clear
I followed you, but when darkness came,
I didn't see you anymore, you were everywhere.

You were the slope of a hill,
Creator of man dreams,
You shadow of a soul,
You only thing I desired.
Obscure profile of dark mountains
stricken by the storm
You sea diving in the clouds,
You've been everything.

I feel so cold,
so cold,
although the sun is high...

I've never seen so bright.
I'm flying through the light.

I've never seen so bright.
I'm flying through the light.

It's my last chance,
my immortal Lord.

Then, freezing shards of ice
fell down and closed my eyes

Blue horizon, will I reach you...
Now...?
