Track Name: Eternal Mind
Lyrics:

Back to replay the scene
Of reflections in my mind
Only to discover what has always been there
I feel the change from deep within
Enticing my will to illuminate this void
I need to find a sense of certain clarity

Dare to dream
Another life that might have been
In new dimensions
I will go on

Look for the truth of the essence beyond
Abstractions guiding your way to the real
Trust introspection you know there’s no
Space, no time, revealing the eternal mind

In the vast emptiness I have seen it all before
Is it real outside my subjectivity?
Falling fast, deep within my mind

Flowing streams of my thoughts
Absolution from the cage
Generating knowledge for contemplating how
But never understanding why
The impasse unveiled, gravitating to the one
Allowing me to find the actuality

Dare to dream
Another life that might have been
In new dimensions
You must go on

Look for the truth of the essence beyond
Abstractions guiding your way to the real
Trust introspection you know there’s no
Space, no time, revealing the eternal mind

Look for the truth of the essence beyond
Abstractions guiding your way to the reality
Trust introspection you know there’s no
Space, no time, revealing the eternal mind

Track Name: Dreamstate
Lyrics:

Rising to conquer the pain
Searching horizons
I wait for a sign in the dead of the night
Memories linger inside…so cold
Is this all there is now?
What might lie beyond?

In dreams I reach the other side
A place of pure aspiration
Return to whence I came
Still a ghost, I’m lost in oblivion

Feels like I’ve lost all control
Living this madness
In the wake of my ever burning desires
Blindly I reach out my hand…in vain
A new revelation
Heed the golden voice

In dreams I reach the other side
A place of pure liberation
Return to whence I came
Still a ghost, I’m lost in oblivion

A light in the dark
There are things I may never know
But I’ll keep on the path now and evermore

Lost in haze, can’t find the way
Try to take hold of the flame
I will take hold of the flame!

In dreams I reach the other side
My ultimate destination
Return to whence I came
Still a ghost I’m lost in oblivion
Forever on my own

Track Name: Beyond the Horizon
Lyrics:

Time running out to survive
Existence, uncertain to carry on
Comets of fire raining down
Shrouding the coming dawn
The chosen few are assigned
To leave our stars behind

Light-speed they fly to distant skies
Will they find their destined land?

They’re the ones to save the fate of humankind
Boundless tale, on a voyage into the unknown
Far to the outer constellations
Beyond the horizon awaits paradise

Mapping their way by the stars
The engines burning at tachyon pace
Scanning through the darkness
For planets to further our race
As time is fading away
They hold fast till that day

Light-speed they fly to distant skies
Will they find their destined land?

They’re the ones to save the fate of humankind
Noble hearts, they are flying where no eagles dare
Far to the outer constellations
Beyond the horizon awaits paradise

Wrought by havoc, rocks of terror haunt their way
Diving, dodging, try to reach the open plane

Free from the field, celestial light is revealed

They’re the ones to save the fate of humankind
Boundless tale, on a voyage into the unknown
Far to the outer constellations
Beyond the horizon awaits paradise

They’re the ones to save the fate of humankind
Noble hearts, they are flying where no eagles dare
Far to the outer constellations
Beyond the horizon awaits paradise

Track Name: Reflection Divine
Lyrics:

Eons of mystic reign
I feel transcended light
Higher into my reverie
Will I live to ever comprehend?

Longing questions, radiating
Seeking answers
I have to but follow my own will

Coronation of truth shines everywhere for me
Lifting free – one with my soul, one with the mind
Gazing into the void, what do I see?
Reflection Divine – could it be me?
Sacred embrace, the dance of mankind
I am now sensing a shadow of divinity

Stagnant in an endless game
Still my thoughts are flowing wild, insane
Tell me for I need to know
Is this world illusion? Can I break away?

Feel the passing of time, the washing away
Life is a myriad of constant change
Stare at yourself, reach from afar
There is a greater reality there

Coronation of truth shines everywhere for me
Lifting free – one with my soul, one with the mind
Gazing into the void, what do I see?
Reflection Divine – could it be me?
Sacred embrace, the dance of mankind
I am now sensing a shadow of divinity

It is me!

Track Name: Elements of Creation
Lyrics:

Elements that became this world
Forged deep in the galaxy
Inside the core of stars
When gravity’s attracting force
Took control relentlessly

Atoms begin to fuse in the fire
Burning the fuel as light
To far reaching darkness in an endless void
Illuminating night
As elements of creation
We are bound to the universe eternally

Near the end of the main sequence
Pressure builds into a hypernova blast
As all the matter turns to energy
Spreading the seeds of life
Our primordial past

Atoms begin to fuse in the fire
Burning the fuel as light
To far reaching darkness in an endless void
Illuminating night
As elements of creation
We are bound to the universe eternally

Accretion
The forming of a solar sphere
Nebula
From interstellar gas and dust
New worlds appear

Consciousness
Evolving through eons of time
Magic, mystery, matrix
Quantum vibrations resonate
To the cosmic rhyme

Atoms begin to fuse in the fire
Burning the fuel as light
To far reaching darkness in an endless void
Illuminating night
As elements of creation
We are bound to the universe eternally

Track Name: Inner Sanctum
Lyrics:

Reflecting – waking eyes that flood unseen
Drifting through a sea uncertain
As moonlight shines for a fleeting gleam

One can’t explain why the feelings remain
We walk alone, silently searching in vain

In the night…
Shattered memories, they cloud my mind
Can’t be bound, a new day I must find
Gates will open, ride into the light
Be yourself, a spirit with the stars in your sight
Realize the strength that lies deep within

Thoughts fading – images like twilight, dimmed
Capturing a cherished moment
The icy chill of a winter wind

As burning hearts find a way to survive
Once through the storm skies will clear, life will thrive

Dawn will come again
A flame in the dark
Dawn will come again
In perfect harmony
A life and the dream
The fire burns eternally

In the night…
Shattered memories, they cloud my mind
Can’t be bound, a new day I must find
Gates will open, ride into the light
Be yourself, a spirit with the stars in your sight
Realize the strength that lies deep within

You’ve got the strength deep within!

Track Name: Fate Seeker
Lyrics:

I’m lost at the end of time
Chosen knight to defend the balance
Gods I will defy
For I’m the Dragonlord

Last in line of an ancient, hellish race
Wielding the Stealer of Souls
Pale, crimson eyes gaze beyond what is time
In madness now I will seek my fate

Behold the towers rising high
The dreaming city sleeps
For revenge I must reclaim my throne
But darkness has reached out again

In this realm there’s a battle raging
Will chaos rule or will order prevail?
Is it all up to me to rewrite history?

Exiled, banished from my past
Woe to those who will taste cruel vengeance
Feel my holy wrath
I’ll storm through the Multiverse

I will slay with my hell-blade, hear it sing
As it feasts upon their souls
Wandering free in my solitude I’ll see
I am the Champion Eternal

Behold the towers rising high
The dreaming city sleeps
For revenge I must reclaim my throne
But darkness has reached out again

In this realm there’s a battle raging
Will chaos rule or will order prevail?
Is it all up to me to rewrite history?

In this realm there’s a battle raging
Unto the end I am the fate seeker
Is it all up to me? Is this my destiny?

“Farewell friend.
I was a thousand times more evil than thou!”

Track Name: Quest for the Fleece
Lyrics:

Legend tells of ancient heroes
Led by Jason, an epic quest began
Delayed on the Isle of Lemnos
By misfortune fell Kyzicos

Hylas was forever lost in Mysia
Sailed on without Heracles
Who could not leave his friend behind

Landed in Thrace seeking Phineus
Blessed with divine gift of prophecy
Captured the Harpies so torturous
In return advised how to reach the Golden Fleece

On a journey to claim the Fleece
In lands far away
It hangs from an enchanted tree
Perilous ride, no fear inside
To Hera they pray
The Argonauts sail far and wide

Pass through the clashing cliffs
But wait till a south wind drifts
Release a dove in the air
If it makes it through then you must row on swiftly
If the flight fails then you will be doomed!

To obtain the Fleece at Colchis
Plow a field wielding fire-breathing beasts
From teeth sowed into the field
Undead warriors were revealed

With the aid of Medea the hydra sleeps
Aeetes, the king betrayed, his reign will cease
Dangers on the voyage home, the Sirens’ breath
Talos held the ship at bay but bled to death

Sail back to Greece, held high the Fleece
The power it holds
Is destined to restore the peace
Followed their guide across seas wide
As legend is told
The Argonauts sail on with pride

Jason returned, defeated Acastus
Reclaimed the throne of Iolcus
