Track Name: Initiation / Black Soil
to burn
to be sacrificed
embrace the flame
demands of flesh
silence of thousand deaths
laws of eternal chaos
washed away
by my blood
in the brightest night
I‘ll reach for the light
to rise
from the soil
pure at heart
strong at roots
Track Name: Forest
beyond the shallow
sensations of slaves
false beliefs
and empty pride
beyond the fear
of life and death
we‘ll step aside
and break the chains
in the heart
of the oldest temple
lies the new beginning
an end of our kind
enter the realm
of timelessness
join the voiceless
shrine of decay

“And I saw an eagle flying over in the golden light of the setting Sun… And by the dusk I saw a snake twisted around a fallen tree. The snake appeared to be blind, unmoving. But when the night had come and the Moon was full, the silver light reflected from the grey eyes, and all the colors of earth began to shine…”
Track Name: Eternal Spring
how I fear
the end of darkness
merciless warmth
revealing the pain
yes I saw
the times of joy
yet I see
it‘s too late now
in the room of thousand candles
burnt through the dark
I close the curtain
and light the final one
empty hope of eternal spring
before my eyes
as the flame fades away
I know I‘m not enough
Track Name: Drowned Current
as within, so without.
dreams of old afresh.
on the moonless nights when the winter winds howl…
of ancient sorceries and forgotten spirits

like wisps of cloud
beyond our consciousness
black water seeping through the cracks
the drowned current not of this earth
the summons come…

in the end I see the illuminated spheres
there is nothing else…

in the outer darkness
hear the distant raging stream
open the final gate!
