Track Name: Hammer of Eden
In a heartbeat, we all understood
At the brink of the final hour
The age of innocence gone forever
Lost in the madness of misused power
Our blissful ignorance gave us shelter
But now our downfall is evident
The lunacy we accepted as truth caused
An irreversible detriment
We are the Hammer of Eden
We are the bringers of doom
Striking the Hammer of Eden
Sealing the earth as our tomb
Stupidity far beyond belief
Only matched by our arrogance
We dug our grave in the name of progress
And killed the last of our innocence
We are the Hammer of Eden
Bringing our doom
Crushing the last voice of reason
Sealing our tomb
Track Name: On the Blackest of Nights
On the Blackest of Nights
The unseen stars align
Guided by darkness
The Messenger shall arrive
Called by the ancient stone
The Wisdom of the Stars
Perpetual shadows feed
The Haunter of the Dark
On the Blackest of Nights
The unseen stars align
Guided by darkness
The Messenger shall arrive
Upon that shunned church hill
The blackened walls hold sway
To keep the crystal safe
From sunlight’s thwarting rays
Summoned to the talisman – a pathway from beyond
A call of shadows sent through space to form the astral bond
Bringing arcane knowledge to the game war-mongers play
His will be done when fools in power blow Earth’s dust away
On the Blackest of Nights
The unseen stars align
Guided by darkness
The Messenger has arrived!
Track Name: The Word and the Abyss
Cast into the dark
Leave you hanging there
Do you know the Word?
Do you know the Abyss?
Scrutinize your heart
Do you feel or care?
Have you known the Word?
Have you felt the Abyss?
Break the shell of your mortal form
Cast your life into the void
Clarity leads through the storm
Your soul transcends while your flesh is destroyed
Branded with the mark
That will lead you there
Can you speak the Word?
Can you cross the Abyss?
Break the shell of your mortal form
Cast your life into the void
Clarity leads through the storm
Your soul transcends while your flesh is destroyed
Across the gap... Face the demon...
Summoned by your fear
A faithful step... Abandon reason...
Reality is near
Track Name: Cyclops
Why am I cursed with this vision?
To see what no one else can see
An uncanny premonition
Of the things that have to be
A bargain with the beast - a pact of arcane powers
One eye given for the gift of second sight
Yet all that we received - for the foolishness of our greed
Was the unwanted vision of the day that we must die
Why am I blessed with this vision?
The gift to know what lies ahead
But still my plans of right decisions
End in constructions of the dead
All I know - All I see
The end that lies ahead of me
Hear our woe - Hear our plea
Save us from a fate brought by our greed
The prophecy I’ve seen, I’ll live to see it fulfilled
How can I mourn the inevitable?
All I know - All I see
The end that lies ahead of me
Hear our woe - Hear our plea
Save us from a fate brought by our greed
All that I know, all that I see
The end ahead of me
All that I show, all that I feel
The prophecy’s now real.
No one else could perceive
No one else would believe
With what I know I can no longer pretend
Another chapter ends here
My vision’s made it so clear
For now I know that this too must end
I see it now, I see it now, I see it now
Now we’re no more
Let it be known - truth lies in death
What has been shown - will forever be
I’ve seen beyond - nothing will change
All sins atoned - as we embrace eternity…
Track Name: Among the Dying
The silence is deafening
The roar of life has died
Facing the emptiness
The bitter cold inside
Gripped by disgust I wake up
To this unrelenting reality
I’ve tasted her lips, felt her embrace
The price was my mortality
I find myself, caught in the grey
Among the dying, the dying to be dead
Breathing death, spirits decay
Among the dying
The air of youth has left me now
I feel my core is crumbling
Downed by the force of age
A mockery quite humbling
Give my condolences to
The naive lover of living
His dream is shattered, torn to shreds
The prize for the years he has given
I find myself, caught in the grey
Among the dying, the dying to be dead
Breathing death, fading away
Among the dying
Among the dying... among the dying...
Among the dying... among the dying...
This is it
There will be no more
From now on I will just await my death.
Track Name: Through the Gateway
“Enter the darkness
Let it take you in
Mystified, by the night
Free from guilt and sin”
So spoke the shadow of the huntress to me
As she guided me through the fields
Ancient fires and carnal desires
How could I anything but yield?
Under the full moon
By the light of stars
Live this night, live your life
As who you really are
Deny the lies of monotheistic religion
Embrace the majesty of creation
Suffer no guilt for the patriarchal burden
Grant your flesh the true Holy sensation
Passing through the gateway
Leaving all my morals behind
The demons embrace me
And greet me as one of their kind
Track Name: The Mourning Son
Darkness falls, as Light dies
I face the storm with open eyes
Another day is over, another night’s begun
And finding me cold sober: The Desolation
Ravaged by the spirits, demons of the low
The sorrows and the secrets, only I can know
Still I rise again, and I know
The reason to go on is the will to not let go
Still I rise again, and I know
The reason to go on is the will to not let go
I’ve touched the mountain highs, and unspeakable depths below
I’ve listened close inside, to hear the river flow
Still I rise again, and I know
The reason to go on is the will to not let go
Still I rise again, and I know
The reason to go on is the will to not let go
