Track Name: The Fall of Man
A way we used to lead was left behind
An equilibrium of heart and mind
Made way to waves of zeal
A tide of great awakenings
We marched into the streets
Waving banners for a range of kings
That said, the end is nigh

Professing of a cause began
Conviction wrought the Fall of Man
And the way that he had vowed to preserve –
A dream lost in the blur

A lonely light is glowing in the cold
Guiding whoever’s left into our hold
A deadly strife came down
A vain attempt to overcome
All mediations drowned
Stifled by the beating of the drum

In turn I came, I saw, I fell
And watched my Eden burn in hell

Our home turned into wasted land
Conviction wrought the Fall of Man
And the way that he had vowed to preserve –
A dream lost in the blur

Conventions ran into the sand
Conviction wrought the Fall of Man
And the way that he had vowed to preserve –
A dream lost in the blur
Track Name: The Rise of Man
Stirring the snow the icy wind is blowing
Veiling everything in sight
The slate is clean
Under the ice another age is growing
Eyeing out the wild behind a glowing screen
Daylight is gone, the curtains are drawn
A past life we’re passing on
And the morning light is all we’re waiting for

In its wake we’ll lead the way
For all into the day
And I’ll be there to say

Lo and behold
It’s a new break of dawn
I’m leaving today to where white roses bloom
A die has been rolled
And straws have been drawn
Should there be triumph or doom
Our house will be reborn

The fables of old
Of virtue and vice
Have not died
We have paid the ultimate price
With our lives

Day after day I yearn to break the silence
Bring us all into the open once again

And when it turns out that I can
All has gone to plan
It is the Rise of Man
Track Name: Paradise on Earth
Close my eyes under somber skies
For a moment a warmth surrounds me
And I see back in time through history
A concert of ages gone by

Now and again it is shown to me
A season of rebirth
A paradise on Earth
Time and again I have got to see
A paradise in dreams alone

Wide awake in a world gone down
But the vision has stayed to haunt me
A river runs wild
A swan passes by
And I know it’s the end
But we can build it all again
Track Name: Berserk (Knee-deep in Gold)
In the mist they persist
Plotting for their blight
They tower, devour
Short of eyes they devise
Somehow watching my domain
From within I begin a prospectless fight
Slaying, delaying
And I dread only shreds of my sanity remain

Knee-deep in gold
Berserk with ire
Intents malign
Grown uncontrolled
Through multitudes I plough
Kernel twofold
This sacred earth and my soul entwine
It's all that matters to me now

Now and then some of them break the chains I’ve wrought
Raiding, invading
My defense never ends when I make my stand
By the time I resign in disordered thought
They're flying, undying...
Unaware, couldn't care for my promised land

All along I can hear your silent cry
“We will take you down”

Knee-deep in gold
Berserk with ire
Intents malign
Grown uncontrolled
Through multitudes I plough
Kernel twofold
This sacred earth and my soul entwine
It's all that matters to me now

On my final resting place
You grow and claim your space

Fly, far away
In my dreams your golden fields

Knee-deep in gold
Berserk with ire
Intents malign
Grown uncontrolled
Through multitudes I plough
Kernel twofold
This sacred earth and my soul entwine
It's all that matters to me now
Track Name: Renaissance
The moon is young
No cloud in the sky
Bodies in unison advance
But one orb shy

Fix your eyes on the god of war
He takes on a motion you can not ignore
They say I misbelieve
I’m the Devil coming through
But I know it’s an illusion
And we are in motion too

Purge your words
For the pillars never tremble

Meditation – revelation
You’ll disdain the ball and chain
And the lake of fire will burn out
Once the holy spotlight has been turned out
Dedication – reformation
Silent sigh
Euphoriant high
Renaissance
We are on the way

I’ve gathered remnants of the olden Earth
I’ve seen life, death, destruction and rebirth
I’ve made the case of how it came to be
They say that it’s a lie
But our roots run to the sea

Foreswear your malevolent tales
Do recall we are image
We are likeness

Meditation – revelation
You’ll disdain the ball and chain
And the lake of fire will burn out
Once the holy spotlight has been turned out
Dedication – reformation
Silent sigh
Euphoriant high
Renaissance
We are on the way

You strive, you thrive
Track Name: A Time Will Come
Picture their face in your dream
Envision the way you trust them to be
Till they dissolve, it would seem
You portray the truth
To an ever extending degree

Time flies
and brass rings are running low
So you shape new ones on your own

There’s nowhere to go
In vain you’re trying again
Could it all have been...

Blue-skies
Your fortune has come and gone
And your cycle of life goes on

The night plays a lonely one’s symphony
Surrounds you
Numbs you inside
A swan flies
It’s black in your dream
Till you break off the cycle and look within
Come round - then you’ll see

And a time will come for us all to reopen our eyes...
Track Name: That's the Way
A song, divine
Like angels from afar
Fills my heart with grace
In no time I became a rising star
In this eccentric place

To be saved there’s just one way
All you have’ll be taken away
You’ll be one with the herd
And they’ll teach you the word
Praise the Man and chant his name
So that he’ll let you play his game
That’s the way

We’re living at least in our mind,
End times in Babylon

Yield your soul
Your time is over
Heed the call
Our time is now
See it through

They say it’s time
To take the final stage
And leave all woes behind

To be saved there’s just one way
All you have’ll be taken away
You’ll be one with the herd
And they’ll teach you the word
Praise the Man and chant his name
So that he’ll let you play his game
All the way

You’ll be one with the herd
And they’ll teach you the word
Praise the Lord and chant His name
So that He’d take away your pain
That’s the way
Track Name: A Pioneer's Tale
I

He leaves one morn
For a land unknown
Has no past to build upon
Roaming on his own

He raises towns
And he builds a scheme
Writes the law and lays it down
Keeping to his dream

I’ve seen what we could be
A vision of a new world in its majesty
Where all are placid and free
But he can’t know it is not meant to be

Deep inside his heart and soul
He knows where to go
But deeper still he’ll one day find
A force he can’t outgrow

A billion years may have passed
But in the end the same goals guide his hand
Buried deep in his brain
All for one, yet none for all

He flies into the stars
He reaches for the heavens
Climbs Olympus in his heart
In his mind, becomes a god

But he can’t find the means
To escape his weakness
Wrath and envy start to grow
And his brother is his foe


II

In his feeble mind
There’s a proneness to resign
A vision falls apart
And anguish fills his heart

Neither way he’s free
So he trades integrity
For a state of mind
Where he is somehow one of a kind

And he pays expense
For a life in providence
When a new divide
Is set to once again ignite

I will rise to do what must be done
To ensure the advent of the one
If I were to fall, then so it be
I’m sure that day Messiah comes for me

You’re the one
Your blaze outshines the sun
Soar across the skies
And draw a million eyes
Likeness of the Swan
Earthly frame foregone
You meet us once upon
an endless winter’s day

He flies into the stars
He reaches for the heavens
Climbs Olympus in his heart
In his mind, becomes a god
