Track Name: Demons Rising
when demons rise and darkness falls across the world
God has to step aside to make way for a new dawn
In this new age nothing will be as it was
the wheel of time will be reset to zero

angels will fall from the sky, demons will rise into the light
when demons rise and earth turns into hell
The way is now clear for the history to retold
a history in which the wicked will be good
a story where all the best to evil turns

Gabriel your time has come - Gabriel blow into the trumpet, proclaim the end
the end of all promise, the end of immortality, the end of all hypocrisy
Gabriel blow into the horn, Gabriel - the day of judgement has come
Track Name: Towards The Sky
always forward, towards the sky, no way back, only further into the light
faded shadows, long forgotten in time, they have no power over thy now
don’t be afraid of things from the past, they exist only in your memories

Through the canyons of the time, towards the sky, follow your aim
do not let it stop you neither from storm and nor from hail
the journey is the reward you will attain it

through the raging of the sea, across the burning sky
you’ll be riding on the storm, into the rising light
into the rising light, towards the sky

the blood of your enemies has long since dried,
their cries have long since died away
it is time to leave it behind

always forward, towards the sky, no looking back, only further into the light
away from the dawn, dark times left behind
for now, forever, until all eternity you will live
Track Name: Sacrifice
kneel down and send your prayers to god or whomever
to determine that no one answered you!

it does not matter in what you believe - just realize you will be sacrificed
blood and tears, agony and pain are the sacrifices you have to make

no salvation in sight, all your prayers will not be heard!
there is no one who forgives, to live this life is the price to be paid
you think there's relief - but life takes its toll

you're just a chess piece in the the battle of your faith
you hope you get redemption, but you still be sacrificed
-
there is no one who forgives, to live this life is the price to be paid
blood and tears - agony and pain, are the sacrifices you have to make
it doesn’t matter what you believe - just recognize - you will be sacrificed
Track Name: Call Of The Ancient Gods
The rustling of the trees, The whisper of the winds,
The rippling of rivers and streams, the roar of the seas
Listen to and recognize the call of the ancient gods

So many questions that exist, so many answers that we do not want to see
we only have to listen to them, the tales that nature tells

Thousands of years - Older than mankind,
but never silenced - the call of the ancient gods
Follow the call, respect their rules, the ancient gods have left us their heritage
A heritage which must be preserved like ancient rites which must not be forgotten
it is ubiquitous, it’s always there, you only need to open your mind

you can perceive it - You feel that it's there, follow the call of the ancient gods
and the insight will reveal to you for all eternity
Track Name: The Fourth Deadly Sin
You feel a strong desire, you can’t resist the anger in you
you want to satisfy your thirst for revenge. An eye for an eye
-
you are aware, it is a mortal sin. It is your dearest of all
The fourth deadly sin it’s your salvation. Redemption at all

Anger is a desire for revenge. Revenge for the suffering, revenge for the shame
but it is praiseworthy "to maintain justice“ to impose restitution

The fourth deadly sin, legitimized in the book of hypocrites
Rage. .Anger.Satisfaction. Redemption at all

The fourth deadly sin, it is your dearest of all
you don’t care, it is a mortal sin, ´cos you can not resist
this desire is greater than anything, wrath and anger persist
Track Name: Shadows Embrace
darkness rises, shadows embrace you
the spirits that you called you will not let go

you've opened the doors, You asked the guest to the table
you have hoped for relief

It was not foreseeable that the guest does not intend to go again
like a prisoner in your own home are you living your life
Shadows Embrace, the dark place in your soul grows

you've opened the doors, you asked the guest to the table
Now he does not want to go

shadows embrace, all hope seems dead
shadows embrace, no solution in sight

hopelessness, no light in the dark, you’re alone.
Track Name: Ashes To Ashes
When the final battle of life is over, when I lie dying in the arms of my friends
No one should fall into sorrow and grief. Remember the good times that we had

ashes to ashes and dust to dust, reminds you of my life, to see who I was

a man who lives for his dreams, a man who fought for his convictions
Straightforward, honest and brave

My bequest shall be my deeds, Forever and ever till eternity
ashes to ashes and dust to dust, reminds you of my life, to see who I was

when the day comes that I die, my ashes scattered down by the creek
the water should carry them, through the great rivers
and then go further until out to sea
for all time, I am a part of the oceans forever, i will always be there

ashes to ashes and dust to dust, reminds you of my life, to see who I was
Track Name: Bloodlines
memories rise through your veins
your sense and soul are nourished by your blood

Have you ever asked yourself, what leads your way?
is it a coincidence or is it fate? Is it your destiny or decided freely
Do you believe in providence, or only in what you see?

Can you imagine that you are just a slave of something greater
A part of a larger whole that exists for centuries

You can’t renounce your bloodline, it determines who you are
In thee the blood of beggars flows. The blood of saints, warriors, blood of kings
In your veins flows their legacy. With every breath you wear it into the world.

your sense and soul are nourished by blood of generations
You can’t renounce your bloodline, it determines who you are
Track Name: The End
the white rider approaches, he comes from dawn.
he is the first of four, with bow and crown
and he went out conquering and to conquer,
he is the first of four that are shaping the end

the second rider appears on a red horse and pulls out his sword,
he is the bringer of violence, blood and war
there is no getaway, no escape. once the horsemen are unleashed
it is irrevocable - the end is near!

you can run for your life, the third horseman is already on the way
a black horse riding, with the scales of justice
he brings the hunger and inflation
the fourth and final horseman is named death,
he rides a pale horse, followed by hades
Bringer of fear, decline and death

the four horsemen of the apocalypse, the harbingers of the end
nowhere is all the complaints and cries, it is too late to repent
the fate is sealed, the decision has been made, there will be no mercy
you will die, die, die ... a painful death

the end is near my friend,
this is the end of humanity
