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 -

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 -

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 -

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! -

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 -

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! -

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!” -

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 -
