Track Name: Rite Of Decay
The gathered cheer as life falls away
Eyes feasting on this rite of decay
Atonement day for those who can see
The rusty fragments of reality

A shattered hope, the end of a dream
A grieving heart that bleeds from within
The devil stood and laughed with disgust
Pale (dreadful) colors of the angeldust

And as I wander
Through (the) fields of my mind
I seek a shelter my beauty to hide
The gates of Eden are so far away
I’m still here purifying this rite of decay
Track Name: The Silence Of The Gods
Only silence remains, In this moldering land
where grace has perished, in their cold blackened hearts

Visions from the past,
Reaching stars of wisdom
In their final battle,
Gloating for their bloodstained crown

Gathered at the altar of the gods,beside the lake of fire
Laments of the great war, tearing the mournful sky

Oh, why do they grieve?

Servants of sin redeemed their hate
Cover their faces with their bloody hands
Forgotten as they walk the path of immortality
They will never return

See the scars on me
Pray once more for me
Drink the blood from me
At the night of my sacrifice
Track Name: Towards The Sun
Let me go towards the sun
Across the empires of the sea
A journey of a thousand nights
With sirens’ haunting melody

Let me go towards the sun
Gentle tides upon my skin
Somewhere far beyond these clouds
Are the treasures that I seek
Track Name: A Waltz Into Darkness
Track Name: Song For Winter
Alone in this life, traces lost in the rain
Winter came in your heart, you embraced all the pain
Sitting here by the fire, reach the core of my soul
Bleeding thorns of desire, tear the canvas of dawn

Leave me here all alone, sweet is the beauty of sadness
Stay with me, I will dispel your darkness
Now we walk the funeral path , naked gods who bury the hope
I long for the winter to come, and pray to heavens above

“ Don’t fear the winter
Embrace the pouring rain,
Let your heart bleed and mourn and grieve
Don’t lose your hope,
there’s a miracle for every teardrop that you share
there is an angel for every prayer
remember you’re not alone…awake”

The silence of Sorrow…
Track Name: Stormbirds
They say they’re here
Came with the morning tide
Then disappear
Into the burning sky

And they flew over my weary eyes,
to the velvet rays of the morning sun,
unsoiled, vestal lands they seek,
for they are doomed to wander this earth

And I watch them bleed,Leaving the dead behind
They dance a waltz of loss, Then fly to promised lands

Just tonight, come with me
With somber eyes, a world to see

I sense (the loneliness) hiding in their hearts
(for the end of time) pain they feel
Journey (of no return) until their final act (of sorrow)
in death’s embrace
Lovers cry in oblivion
Track Name: I Am The Sorrow
Darkness falls and I am alone
Whispers call disturb my darkest night
Follow the way, through ashes of fire
Enter my realm, a new world to see
No destiny is left here for me

Like a bird in the trees
Chanting dark melodies
I’ll imprison your mind,
I’ll stay in the shadows

Darkness falls I’m so far from home
Mirrors hide the wretched face of love
Enter my realm, confess your desire
Pain and grief are both the toll for tomorrow
I will curse your life for I am the sorrow
I was left here to bleed
With comfort embraced the disease
At the end of the dream
I became the shadow
Track Name: The Lights Of Alexandria
Parallel worlds, a future so bright
Here on the shore, behind city lights
Touching the stars, sweet little dreamers
Laughter and tears, beautiful years

Now winds of misfortune
Midnight choirs of disharmony
Rivers of blood, a great final torture
Anthems of loss, songs of defeat

Streets of gold, a way to the sun
Days of decay, Soon they will come
Burning their eyes, scarred little dreamers
Silence and fear, dark lurid years

I will find my way through the darkness
The city I loved, is still haunting me
Angels embrace my own sadness
Bringers of Hope in my time of need

And I dance upon my grave
As I breathe for one last time
And I’ll raise my eyes to heaven
When the sun and moon will die

Σαν έτοιμος από καιρό, σα θαρραλέος,
σαν που ταιριάζει σε, που αξιώθηκες μια τέτοια πόλι,
πλησίασε σταθερά προς το παράθυρο,
κι άκουσε με συγκίνησιν,
αλλ’ όχι με των δειλών τα παρακάλια και παράπονα,
ως τελευταία απόλαυσι τους ήχους,
τα εξαίσια όργανα του μυστικού θιάσου,
κι αποχαιρέτα την,
την Aλεξάνδρεια που χάνεις...”
