Track Name: The Tempest
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Faith in Steel
Lyrics:

Summon the fire of ages
Quest for the power we ride
Into the dark, the blackness of night
Test of our valor and pride

Sent by the call of the wind
Justice is ours to command
Serving the will of the gods
Immortal with sword in hand

We are redeemers of truth
Vengeance is ours to uphold
Wrought in the flames of the past
Guarded by the righteous and bold

Stronger in heart we have come
All knowing the power we feel
Enter the kingdom of fate
We are the defenders of steel

Burning the ground
To show us the way
All rise on this judgment day
Ride!
Freedom is calling
Fight!
Forever we are defending the king
And the crown with steel
Faith in steel

”Honor and courage are the ideals of your
quest. Noble knights, fight for truth, for
our kingdom may not carry on. Evil lurks
beyond the horizon, but your faith in steel
will secure your king's destiny...Ride fast!”

A new age shall be reborn
And the chained shall be free
We have seen enough agony
It's time to fly into the skies of your dreams...

Burning the ground
To show us the way
All rise on this judgment day
Ride!
Freedom is calling
Fight!
Forever we are defending the king
And the crown with steel
Faith in steel

Burning the ground
To show us the way
All rise on this judgment day
Ride!
Freedom is calling
Fight!
Forever we are defending the king
And the crown with steel
Faith in steel
Track Name: Riding the Cosmic Winds
Lyrics:

I have journeyed light years from home
Defending the galaxy
Injustice enslaving my mind
We must face the enemy

Fighting in worlds so strange
Landscapes of fire and ice
Cosmos of terror beware
Unite or we all pay the price

Reach for the light on your way to the sun
Fight for the honor, let justice be done
No turning back, we are storming the winds
On this endless night

The end is near
Now wait for the sky to reveal
Your sacred ride to follow
Gaze through the storm
You will see
The cosmic winds are calling me

Blood, fire, hell is here
Fear the evil race
Give me strength to carry on

The fury of planets collide
The wormholes will trap us in time
On wings that will carry me through
And stars that will serve as my guide

Dimensions of space-time I ride
Living on the edge of death
Traveling at light speeds so fast
Hold on to every last breath

Reach for the light on your way to the sun
Fight for the honor, let justice be done
No turning back, we are storming the winds
On this endless night

The end is near
Now wait for the sky to reveal
Your sacred ride to follow
Gaze through the storm
You will see
The cosmic winds are calling me

The end is near
Now wait for the sky to reveal
Your sacred ride to follow
Gaze through the storm
You will see
The cosmic winds are calling me
Gaze through the storm
You will see
The cosmic winds are calling me
Track Name: Forever Triumphant
Lyrics:

We traveled so far
Through space and time
As I greet the coming day
I know that I was blind

Memories they come and go
Vanishing into the night and I
Look inside to find the truth
Searching for the light

Burning hearts
Rise with the sun
Joining together we are one
Souls of truth
Stand and believe
Forever triumphant we'll be

Now walking alone
The wind in my face
Emotions by my side
That I shall embrace

A call to the heavens
A cry from my soul
I live in the moment
While time takes its toll

Burning hearts
Rise with the sun
Joining together we are one
Souls of truth
Stand and believe

Burning hearts
Rise with the sun
Joining together we are one
Souls of truth
Stand and believe
Forever triumphant we'll be
Track Name: Heart of Dreams
Lyrics:

This driving force I have inside
It lets my dreams forever guide
Can't live no more with this reality
On golden wings I will defy
This savage world condemned to die
My soul will live for all eternity

Somehow my consciousness was born
Senses unite and now I know
Feel the strength within me
I'll create my destiny

Heart of dreams
Guide me on
The future waits to be
It's up to me
Heart of dreams
Living the way that I want
I will set my spirit free

Night after night, dreaming again, still searching
Rising purely to the source of light
Realize the truth and don't look back, flame burning
There's a meaning and it's always in sight

Search deep inside of yourself
Hope a new age will reveal

Sometimes it's hard to follow your way
And never to give in
Better to try than just fade away...
There is no choice

Somehow my consciousness was born
Senses unite and now I know
Feel the strength within me
I'll create my destiny

Heart of dreams
Guide me on
The future waits to be
It's up to me
Heart of dreams
Living the way that I want
I will set my spirit free
Track Name: Warrior Forlorn
Lyrics:

You can't deny
Voices deep within
Fierce is the blade that stands in your way
Bound by misfortune to lead you astray
Right of the chosen to search for a brighter day

You have seen your last tomorrow
Now I shall return
From the ashes of the fallen
I shall be reborn
As I ride across this wasteland
I will stain with blood and rage
Till the glory is restored
I am a warrior forlorn

Reach for my hand
You will see the light
Gods of the earth have blessed you my friend
Break out from the chains you are free once again
Rise on the mountain and wait for your soul to ascend

You have seen your last tomorrow
Now I shall return
From the ashes of the fallen
I shall be reborn
As I ride across this wasteland
I will stain with blood and rage
Till the glory is restored
I am a warrior forlorn

And all together
We'll keep the flame alive
By fire and blood I'll live...again!
Track Name: Forged in Dragon Flames
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Eyes of Time
Lyrics:

Time, where are you now?
Why can't I find?
Are you the essence of change in my mind?

Doesn't life feel prearranged,
Destined to make me choose?
But I believe I will to be

Seeing through the eyes of time
Uncover secrets of history
Experience a state of mind
Living for eternity
Seeing through the eyes of time
Feel the pain of so many years
Searching for what you'll never find
Learning to fight back your tears

No turning back
Never to see
What lies in the hands of your own destiny

And life is so strange
The eyes of time are watching me
But I believe I will to be

Seeing through the eyes of time
Uncover secrets of history
Experience a state of mind
Living for eternity
Seeing through the eyes of time
Feel the pain of so many years
Searching for what you'll never find
Learning to fight back your tears

Seeing through the eyes of time
Uncover secrets of history
Experience a state of mind
Living for eternity
Seeing through the eyes of time
Feel the pain of so many years
Searching for what you'll never find
Learning to fight back your tears
Track Name: Mystic Star
Lyrics:

My travels through lands of peril and fear
I feel the end of my worries is near
And now with the time, I gaze towards the sky
To think of the way that my life has passed by

The mysteries of life and reality
Have started to form and consume all of me
I live through the night with every bright star
And realize the answers might lie somewhere far

This moment won’t last forever
I hope it will stay in my thoughts and my heart
To look at the heavens and think we’re alone
The mystery lives on, for no one knows...

These stars so bright and far away
What I’m feeling it’s hard for me to say
All I know is until my final day
I will search for the truth of the mystic star

This moment won’t last forever
I hope it will stay in my thoughts and my heart
To look at the heavens and think we’re alone
The mystery lives on, for no one knows...

These stars so bright and far away
What I’m feeling it’s hard for me to say
All I know is until my final day
I will search for the truth of the mystic star
Track Name: The Dawn of Enlightenment
Lyrics:

Knowing no sorrow or fear
Judged by his spirit
The last rite is here

From the dark the pure have survived
The age of enlightenment
Now has arrived

Searching for signs to show him the way
A call from within
To rise on this day

One soul in this perilous fight
To strike at the heart
Of the enemy's might

Hellish lands burning his mind
The fate of the world
The hope of mankind

Now witness the grand final stand
All is his choice
His will to command!

Riding with forces of old
The alliance reborn again
The story is told

Why do we listen to a crowd of fools,
Always choosing what others would want?
Inside my mind the demons arise
My soul bleeding for retribution

The light that shines in my eyes
Spirit show me the way
Guiding me from the lies
To live another day

Throughout the years so many in pain
Far too long we failed to see
Those who love the power they wield
Why all this need for persecution?

The light that shines in my mind
Path I walk alone
Search for freedom my guide
Can't wait another day

On this journey of life
I seek to find my destiny
I hear it calling, calling out for me...

Fear surrounds the world I see
Ignorant bliss all that they know
Persevere through chaos
Reach for wisdom deep in my soul
Faith and reason co-exist
Learn to think, I shall not be blind
What they choose to criticize
Really what they choose to hide behind

Now at last the time has come
When we die where do we go?
Seeking hope in desperation
Promises are false contentment

Will the soul endure it's forsaken fate
To break from bone and flesh?
Reach it's final destination,
Will we know?

As I ride on the river of time
Memories flooding my dreams
Trust in that which insight reveals
Flame of truth set us free

The light that shines in my eyes
Spirit show me the way
Guiding me from the lies
To live another day

Plural minds in a world of disguise
Separate thoughts, subjective ideals
Appearances we take for the truth
Is our essence a higher reality?

The light that shines in my mind
Path I walk alone
Search for freedom my guide
Can’t wait another day

"At last we have ventured through timeless ages in a quest for
truth. While fighting to seek answers to life's epic questions,
we abandoned the lies of others to discover our own way.
We have broken the will of the weak-minded deceivers and
thus have strengthened our own. We are the chosen ones.
Our essence will burn on in the glorious flames of eternity!"
