Track Name: A Universe Reborn
Oh something has changed
Anomalies unknown
The structure of the void is reshaped
A universe reborn
All purity of night has been stained
The alpha hour brings life into distant worlds
A fraction of a second is all that it takes
To turn the darkest night into day
Monotonous blackness pushed aside
Erased once and for all
Coordinated particles swarm through space
Never to return again
Amorphous creation is taking place
Antimatter conquering the unknown
The laws of science broken and bent
Merging future and past
A simple mind cannot comprehend
For only chaos remains
Mysteries
Locked away
In the center of
The universe
So it has begun
With endless tales forged in the stars
And the void forced to stand down
As the rays of million suns came undone
From the fiery heart
Masses are emerging
Entropy increasing to infinity
A miracle unwitnessed
An army of suns
Marching to eternity
Here...
Lies the key...
To the mysteries
Locked away
In the center of
The universe
So it has begun
With endless tales forged in the stars
And the void forced to stand down
As the rays of million suns came undone
Track Name: A Thousand Dreams
Awake... Awake...
The winds are resting calm
The world is standing still
Its body seems pure but the spirit has been killed
Nature may die with all life petrified
Prayers to the skies for a single storm to rise

A thousand sights turn to the sky
A thousand ravens cry
As the vernal breeze transforms
Into a thousand raging storms
Coat the earth with thousand scars
As the black rays of dead stars
Bathe the world in hollow lights
In this darkest of dark nights

The tides have turned
All mercy has been burned


The air now filled with dust and mud
The ground engulfed in filthy blood
As sharp winds rip flesh apart
Of a thousand dying hearts
A thousand souls cry out in pain
A thousand tears fall down in vain
A thousand lives face their end
A thousand dreams crushed in our hands

A storm of fire sets the world ablaze
Turns the ground into a neverending maze
There is no point in running away
Where one life starts, a thousand more end!

And so the world burns down
Death reigns every town
We stand hand in hand
And wait for our end
Only silence survives
When the fire takes our lives
One last time we watch the sky
To say goodbye

And nothing remains
Volition has been slain

Fires so fierce
The world burns in the end
Its body seems wrecked
But the spirit has been cleansed
With deafening sound
The ground turned upside down
The maelstroms shall rage
Chaos will rise again

Nature is suffering from the aftermath of war
That plagued this world for centuries like a parasitic disease
To cleanse the stains of cruelty, hell must break loose
To shake the walls of reality, all mercy refused

And so the world burns down
Death reigns every town
We stand hand in hand
And wait for our end
Only silence will survive
When the fire takes our lives
One last time we watch the sky
To say goodbye

The stars are burning bright
In the fiery sky

The air now filled with dust and mud
The ground engulfed in filthy blood
As sharp winds rip flesh apart
Of a thousand dying hearts
A thousand souls cry out in pain
A thousand tears fall down in vain
A thousand lives face their end
A thousand dreams crushed in our hands
A thousand rocks descend from space
A thousand skulls will find their graves
A thousand songs forever fade
A thousand times we have paid
Track Name: Utopia
"Truths are easy to understand,
The point is to discover them"
(Galileo Galilei)
Take me to a place where pain's just a tale
Far across the weakness of man
A realm where years count for nothing
To blur the line between life and death
An idea for man to heed trembling
To leave all sickness and never look back
In my journey I follow the signs
Shining across the sky
Leaving the shores once and for all
Come what may come
Go and leave all the rest
To the unforgiving past
No more chains free from sadness and woe
This is where you're reborn
So long my son
You are free from your sins
You have arrived
Utopia
Chasing an idea I have seen in my dreams
Obsessed by a glimpse of freedom and ease
A refuge amidst my despair
Only to be seen through the eyes of the blind
Those who are free from the clutch of corruption
Remain immortal till the end of time
"Whoever sets himself up as a judge
At last is shipwrecked by the laughter of Gods"
(Albert Einstein)
As twilight surrounds me
I feel lost and betrayed
But deep down I know
Salvation awaits
And although we're just dust
The legacy must live on
Bigger than you and me
A symbol for the Gods
A symbol of strength
For noone shall ever break my will
A symbol of pride
For the mind shall always be free
In my journey I follow the signs
Shining across the sky
Leaving the shores once and for all
Come what may come
Go and leave all the rest
To the unforgiving past
No more chains Free from sadness and woe
This is where you're reborn
So long, my son
You are free from your sins
You have arrived
Utopia
Track Name: Singularity Omega
All the constants are defined
Elliptic arcs have been shaped
This is the point of no return
We saw the fabric of the stars
Following the void to the ends of time and space
Perspectives shifted thousandfold
There are no choices left to make
For we are only grains in endless shores
Elements fall prey to the bitterness of time
A cosmic catastrophe draws near
The quasar glow invisible henceforth
Our limit inevitably reached
Even if all the centuries fade away
Even if all the worlds become one in shadows and dust
We remain the same
As we turn into one
One we become
Scattered worlds are longing for unity once more
Their solitary paths find an end
When blind submission gains control
And countless roads are leading them astray
Powerless we drift into the eye of the storm
The spiral's endless thirst cannot be quenched
When novas will illuminate the night
History repeats itself again
Even if all the centuries fade away
Even if all the worlds become one in shadows and dust
We remain the same
Unite, face your fears
No escape, no empathy
Oh, give in to gravity
Oh, no pain, no agony
And this never ending path becomes clear
Even though we tremble in fear we will not walk away from fate
We crossed the line this time, in darkness we unite
We fell from grace this time a phantom sacrifice
All ceased, all burned
All gone, all is one
Singularity
Track Name: Evolution´s Downfall
Tides so powerful, unmerciful
The instance we breathe to live again
The order died, so new ways can rise
The moment we can't recall our past
This frozen hell, it bids us farewell
We're bound to a force we can't conceive
Crystallized, immortalized
The world is not what we believed

Don't fall into desperation
Cycles repeat again and again
It is the natural way of all things
Embrace the end

This incarnation will soon be replaced
This is the dawn
The next iteration is put to the test
To give up our reign
When our generation is not meant to least
This is our fall
The whole world is burning and sinks into
Revolution, evolution's end

The smell of death lies in the air
Forever cursed in nature's spell

Aphelion, oblivion
In a dead man's lunacy we dwell

Riots lay waste over towns
Sweeping the seas and the skies
Monuments reduced to rubble and ash
And requiems are sung for the dead

Oh, an absence of faith

Chaos shall reign
Loved ones may die
Hope might cease
Tomorrow will come
And we strive for justice
And we strive for peace
But in the end
We won't prevail

This incarnation will soon be replaced
This is the dawn
The next iteration is put to the test
To give up our reign
When our generation is not meant to least
This is our fall
The whole world is burning and sinks into
Revolution, evolution's end

Evolution's end

The end will come for us
So tenacious
If you lose your trust
Don't be anxious

When there is no choice
Hush your inner voice
You'll be born again
Evolution's end
Track Name: The Hourglass
Nothing will ever be the same
There's a the dark corruption spreading
Deep inside our vains
"Downward is the only way, " she said
"Lets aim for the skies", he replied
"The maelstrom takes us all, " she said
"We stay strong and survive"
"Nothing we can do, " she said
"Hold on to faith, " he assures
"It can't save us from ourselves"
"It's always in our might to choose"
Like a shadow at our back
Judgement comes at last
And time will take us all
We are stained by mortality
The foundation of doom we leave behind
This is our destiny
"We're not born to die, " he said
"Nor meant to last, " she replied
"Why are you afraid, " he asks
"I dream of the end of times"
"None of which is true, " he claims
"The horrors that I see in the night"
"We'll live to see another day"
Right from the start it's been too late
Like a demon from within
Judgement closing in
And time will take us all
We are stained by mortality
The foundation of doom we leave behind
This is our destiny and our legacy
Take one last deep breath
'Cause our final sentence is death
Nothing will ever break the chain
We are merely puppets acting in a bigger play
"Do you start to realize, " she cries
"Now I see, " he concedes
Rivers pouring from her eyes
There is nothing left to believe
And our fate is sealed, my friend
Every deed takes its toll
Passing weakness till the end
Carrying flaws in our blood
Like an hourglass running dry
Judgement has arrived
And time will take us all
We are stained by mortality
The foundation of doom we leave behind
This is our fate
And time will take us all
We are stained by mortality
The foundation of doom we leave behind
This is our destiny and our legacy
Take one last deep breath
'Cause our final sentence is death
Track Name: Interdimensional
It's time to return...
I am not a part of you
I am not willing to be seen
Cause I am more than meets the eye

I'm not a part of this world
I cannot be found
Yet I keep on waiting
To come undone

Unstable equilibrium's driving two worlds apart
A great divide to last for all times
Since the separation I am hiding in the dark
A mystery not meant to be revealed
Oh to end my slumber I'd break every rule

Untouchable, yet so real...

An aspect purer than light
A taste of the divine


Follow me through the vortex
Take a step beyond
Break the concept
Let the past collapse
Open the doorway
To this new dimension

As you start to realize
Everything you know
Is neither truth nor lies
Everything's bright
Behind the curtain of space
But mind your eyes
Everything has a price
And sometimes you can turn blind
From what you might find
Once you open the gate

Between dimensions I'm standing guard
Once I'm awakened I'll devour the stars
Blessings from Heaven, curses from Hell
Welcome to the ever-changing realms

Visions
Visions
Visions of death and rebirth
Of a second chance
To rise anew
To delete the past
New horizons
Old conventions
Will collapse

Everything's bright
Behind the curtain of space
But mind your eyes
'Cause everything you know
Everything you know is lies

Gateway for a different tale
Two sides that can't coexist
Gateway for a different fate
Only one can persist

An aspect purer than light
A taste of the divine

Follow me through the vortex
Take a step beyond
Break the concept
Let the past collapse
Open the doorway
To this new dimension

As you start to realize
Everything you know
Is neither truth nor lies
Everything's bright
Behind the curtain of space
But mind your eyes
Everything has a price
And sometimes you can turn blind
From what you might find
Once you open the door

Between dimensions I'm standing guard
Once I'm awakened I'll devour the stars
Blessings from Heaven, curses from Hell
Welcome to the ever-changing realms

Blessings from Heaven, curses from Hell
Welcome to never-ending decay
