Track Name: The Revenant
While I've never felt
her shivering caress
The deck of cards have been dealt
At last we will coalesce

She calls me to the flame
Like the moth I am to blame
She's moving her alluring frame
She's calling my name

Hit with sudden euphoria
as cold rain hits my skin
A mental phantasmagoria
This is a fight I cannot win

Bow to the revenant

She is taking over
When the sky opens
before me
Bow to the revenant

Talismans align
and the starlit sky will shine
We'll end a bloodline
and raise our chalice of wine

She calls me to the soil
Like the worm I am to blame
She's moving her alluring frame
She's calling my name

Lay them to waste
The passing of time
will be their disgrace

Passing of time
will determine the paradigm
Track Name: The Ember
Dowse the ember
with ancient ash
You must remember
the backlash

Pick up the sword
The reward restored
Become the warlord
The world explored

Listen to the flow of the stream
Aural visions is not what they seem
As the sun beams
my weapon gleams

Put an end to the nightmarish dream
Honor and blood I must redeem
The enemys' scream
Part of my scheme

Rekindled with ambition
to cure my condition
Losing cognition
I'm failing my mission

My mind lost at sea
Deceived by the banshee
Death is the key
as far as I can see

Losing sight of what is right
as I'm afflicted by blight
Cannot reignite
Hit with sudden insight

My decease, pale and white
On the wings of death, I'll take flight
No way for a knight
to abandon his plight

Rekindled with ambition
to cure my condition
Losing cognition
I'm failing my mission

Rekindled with ambition
to cure my condition
Losing cognition
I'm failing my
Mission

Extinguished as the meteorite
A warriors death, my birthright

The light shining so bright
Strenght fading, losing sight
Old words I can no longer recite
My time here is finite
Track Name: The Nameless
Forgotten among the golden dunes
the walls littered with ancient runes
Protruding uncannily above the sand
an archaic city in the promised land

Brick by brick, crumbling and dead
Forgotten for uncounted ages
Corpses of stone by the riverbed
Not a word on any of the pages

That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons even death may die
The Nameless

Spellbound by a resonating sound
A disheartening cry from underground

I must retreat from this ancient ground
as the roseal light hit the sacred mound

An aura repelled me and begged me to retreat
Sinister secrets no man should see

Ghastly and pale the moon showed me the way out
As I turned around I saw its' eyes

That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons even death may die
The Nameless

Light gleaming over the primeval ruins
at a distance nothing more than stone
I can never forget what lurks in the shadows
or what was seated on that ancient throne

That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons even death may die
Track Name: The Orchid
Malformations builds up inside my mind
In this nightmare we're all confined
The vastness of space are there to remind
that we're trapped and quarantined

When we leave this life behind
We'll leave that which we were all declined
The illusions that we designed
How could we all be so blind?

We signed that which we couldn't get behind
This maligned mankind totaly confined
We were inclined and designed to be unrefined
How could we all be so blind?

Seduction and reprodution
a social construction
or a divine instruction?
Distracted by the orchid

Find forgiveness for this grave mistake
Partake in my heartache and you'll surely break
Remake or retake, let it become your keepsake
Think about what you'll forsake

Enveloped by dreams, yet I am awake
Brooding nights my mind will shake
Caught in an eternal cerebral quake
Do not forget what you'll forsake

Seduction and reprodution
a social construction
or a divine instruction?
Distracted by the orchid

Seduction and reprodution
a social construction
or a divine instruction?
Distracted by the orchid

Seduction and reprodution
a social construction
or a divine instruction?
Distracted by the orchid
