Anthem for Freedom
Walking out an empty road.
It's all too dark and cold. None around I know
It's not the way I planned at all
I reach with my hand out for help to come
When did I get so alone?

It's pouring down
These lonely drops of sky, they are divine!
Drops of water soothe me to the core as the flow,
Staining on my heart and I feel that now I know;
You never learn to swim if you won't decide to leave your boat

Through the wind and fierce storms
You find the strength to rise above!

Say even if it all falls around you now
And pain wraps its hands around you,
Set for a brand new horizon!

'Cause you know even if you are down and out
You'll always have wings strong enough to
Spread over brand new horizons
Spread over and fly!

You'll always have wings strong enough to spread over horizon and fly
And through denial comes sometimes the truth and what once was dark now makes pure sense to you.
Have you ever defied the sorrow inside instead of letting it break you apart?
The sun comes after rain. Fight to the core before all is gone, this Anthem of Freedom, unheard of before!

Say even if it all falls around you now
And pain wraps its hands around you,
Set for a brand new horizon!

Cause you know even if you are down and out
You'll always have wings strong enough to
Spread over brand new fly!
 
 
Truth
Breathe. Feel. See. Awaken in a lie!
Artificial day, I chose to fade out rather than to be living a lie

The clockwork under skin

What a world is this we fail to realize
All our innocence, in a sense is keeping us blind

All I want is to know to figure what's wrong with this world!
I can't get that far on my own
We need to believe in something more
Staying awake is all we've got to save all we're living for
I must be blind not to see the truth

Breathe in reality. Deep enough to see how we've been deceived won't be relieved. A shattered diagram of life

I just keep on returning for answers half asleep I've been left out aside
What's beneath this ephemeral surface and how fragile is this?
What truth has been hidden from us?

I deny to close my eyes and believe it's irreversible

They made you believe, they ,are you forget
We will never stop till balance's restored
We just keep on searching a cure for this world

I can't get that far on my own
We need to believe in something more
Straying awake is all we've got to save all we're living for
I must be blind to see the truth

I must be blind to see the truth
I just feel like wondering "where's our universal mind?"
What aren't we returning into what we really are?

Today a new dawn has arisen. We can't get that far on our own
We need to believe in something more. We'll stay awake for all we've got
And save all we're living for
I won't stand blind for we can see the Truth
 
 
The Bargain of Lost Souls
Light years away, up high
Beyond all awareness a cosmic shield lies ahead

They had a cause so dreadful: one crown for this Earth

Come and join the bargain of lost souls the fight to rule them all
Control is worth more than your life
Now won't you give up the fight and just kneel, obey
Resistance is losing game you see, it's worth the price on all the sides of our bloody dice

All the stars headed all the white man called for and they knew all along

Centuries later, brotherhoods of The Cloak
Set up their game The Shield to gain:
One who rules it, rules them all

(Greed leaves no choice but The Power of One)

Come and join the bargain of lost souls the fight to rule them all
Control is worth more than your life
Now won't you give up the fight and just kneel, obey
Resistance is losing game you see, it's worth the price on all the sides of our bloody dice
 
 
Dreamstate
A blur in which I'm caught feels all my life is wrapped in chains
There's no one else to blame for my weakness to stand

Raise the knife again
This time the enemy is me
Ignoring all I am, plagued by insecurity

Stay, the reason of your fall is nothing but this prideful blindfold
Don't you lie to yourself!

They never told me why I'm breathing no purpose in life.
They've spread the puzzle so we'll never get to make it complete

Stay, there're reasons to find the cure to your own insanity,
Twisted and torn you won't get any further

Spinning in circles in your dreamstate have you just wondered what is your fate?
What you believe in now?
Break out the circle of your dreamstate have you forgotten what is your fate?
Who you believe in, now?

Controlling all I see, dictating what I feel my consciousness has been put a long time now back to sleep
These chains of tortured flesh poisoned by their commands
How can I break free?
I'm hiding within the damage they have done to me

Stay, the reasons of your fall is nothing but this prideful blindfold

Spinning in circles in your dreamstate have you just wondered what is your fate?
What you believe, now?
Break out the circle of your dreamstate have you forgotten what is your fate?
Who you believe in, now?
 
 
Awakened by the Light (Universal Mind)
"When our times seemed too dark for melodies and songs of hope, when greed and ache and suffering took away all purpose we came to deliver a new message, of life.
A message of awakening. A message of resurrection and change.
For the rivers of time cannot flow in reverse but inner strength can emerge as new from the waters"

Oh, my mind's always striving in finding why this world is dying
No birds I hear, no memory I can recall

"Shape a circle on the ground, break free from down
Restore my face. Let the light in to awaken all Truth in your mind!
(Universal mind) There is so much more you've never known
(Universal mind) Lingered in the darkness for too long
(Universal mind) Take the gift I've come here to bestow
(Universal Mind) Thought you'd be forever on your own?

Why did I choose to turn away than look it in the eyes and say
"I won't ever fall again, awakened now I've been!"

Everything falls down in front of me shattered but the light
What I used to be, I'm not even me. I've changed; I'm no more blind
And all the pain I see around; I know I can heal it all

I'll shape a circle on the ground, break free from down
I'll restore my faith. Let the light in to awaken all Truth in my mind!

(Universal mind) There is so much more you've never known
(Universal mind) Lingered in the darkness for too long
(Universal mind) Take the gift I've come here tio bestow
(Universal Mind) Thought you'd ve forever on your own?

Why did I choose to turn away than look it in the eyes and say
"I won't ever fall again, awakened now I've been!"

"Pick me up from my lonely ground and take me to see where the World's four corners rise
I'm back to Grace, out of a layered Sky, where Gods and
Moons all die and live again
All is a wave, a circle on the edge..."
 
 
A World That Burns
Tell me, why the oceans flood?
Tell me where the fallen stars go
The world's in our hands. If you cut me open you'll see the Truth

"I can't move mountains or stop the rain but I have the power to ease the pain"
Quitting is out of the question, we live in a world that burns
Why can't we heal each other's heart? Pick up the pieces that fall apart
Showing the world we're not breaking, we're taking it all up high

Tell me, why the oceans flood. Tell me where the fallen stars go so I find my way
Cause everything that is human in me underneath this clockwork in me makes it hard, too
If you cut me open you'll see the Truth

"I can't move mountains or stop the rain but I have the power to ease the pain"
Quitting is out of the question, we live in a world that burns
Why can't we heal each other's heart? Pick up the pieces that fall apart
Showing the world we're not breaking, we're taking it all up high

If you cut me open you'll see the Universe. Feels like I have come from somewhere far away
And I cannot erase this feeling like ain't this right here my place

"I can't move mountains or stop the rain but I have the power to ease the pain"
Quitting is out of the question, we live in a world that burns
A world that burns. Why can't we heal each other's heart?
Pick up the pieces that fall apart
Showing the world we're not breaking, we're taking it all up high

Quitting is out of the question, we live in a world that burns. Burns...
So wide our universe. Feels like I have come from somewhere far away
 
 
Seven
If you ask I have to say
There is no one only way
To reach the glory of the eternal game

It lies beyond the sacred lands
Where the Mayan gods transcend
And now's your turn to fire the light within

I call you to battle, the stars are seeking you
Answer my calling, the jaguar is waiting too

Between worlds of cosmic shapes, he will guide you to a place

Where you and I will find the answer lies within!

Oh, reflective of the Gods
This day we climb the seventh wave, crashing on the shore
Behold the perfection at all cost
This day we feed the fire burning from now on and ever on
Ever on!

Let you fields wide open still 'cause you know it just begins
An endless journey across the galaxies

I call you to battle, the stars are seeking you
Answer the calling, the jaguar is waiting

If you ask I have to say
There is no only way to see the light so follow in the rite!

Oh, reflective of the Gods
This day we climb the seventh wave, crashing on the shore
Behold the perfection at all cost
This day we feed the fire burning from now on and ever on
Ever on!

Step in the circle of the fire
Let the light enter you and you'll see the souls dance around

Oh, reflective of the Gods
This day we climb the seventh wave, crashing on the shore
Behold the perfection at all cost
This day we feed the fire burning from now on and ever on
 
 
The Jaguar Priest
Ever since the road to the stars
Descended from the heavens to earth
I have seen the thirteen and nine
I was shown the source of my birth

Chilam Balam show us the way
We must spill the blood of your brothers
Even 'til the very last day, even that a father and mother

I am the jaguar priest
For the people I gather the knowledge
The jungle opens up for me, as I run to meet the great God

Kukulkan
Speaks only to me
As the sun rises up in the east
I am the only one allowed to see
I am the jaguar priest

He told me to paint the bodies blue
And prepare for the blood sacrifice
It's the only way the people are free from the awesome wrath of Kukulkan
Sacrifice, and vow before me
Get on your knees
I am eternal, for the stars I leave
I will always be, the jaguar priest

Sacrifice, and vow before me
On your knees
I am eternal, for the stars I leave
I will always be, the jaguar priest

Ever since the road to the stars
Descended from the heavens to earth
I have seen the thirteen and nine
I was shown the source of my birth

He has showed me the mark of the days
All the way up to the point in time
When thirteen Baktun shall open up
The road to the underworld

Sacrifice, and vow before me
Get on your knees

Piano part

This is how I know
So, I will make, the calendar
To mark all the days
And when Kukulkan return to the sea
I will stop atop El Castillo
He will always provide for me
Never leave me alone, in the darkness
For I am not merely, like all the others
I am the jaguar priest
 
 
The Force of Our Creation
Underneath the same skies I used to stare at alone a thousand years before with the light in my soul
In my awakening

And now I'm drowning in a sea where memories unfold could it be that I already know it all?
Who am I and who are we?

It's coming to me that I've foreseen our souls are flowing with the waves of time
Hovering within a circle, coming, going
When memory fails instinct prevails and that's how we know we've been always alive
Eternally this inner pulse keeps growing

It's a round reincarnation
Ascending spirits turn to light
You see them flicker in the night
Can't you see the bodies burn in limited lives?

The Force of Our Creation unbreakable through centuries
I've seen it coming over me

But who can tell who we are?
Am I you? Are you me?
'Cause I am everything you see
I'm the answer that you seek an eternal Jaguar Priest
It takes one breath to feel the pulse takes one life to last. It takes one life to last

Crossed the borders of my life you see, my spirit never dies
You will find me in whatever never fades
I've been through an odyssey to find my way
Unbreakable through centuries
I've seen it coming over me

But who can tell who we are?
Am I you? Are you me?
'Cause I am everything you see
I'm the answer that you seek an eternal Jaguar Priest
It takes one breath to feel the pulse takes one life to last. It takes one life to last

But who can tell who we are?

I thought this life had failed but now I see I am a part of a Universal Game
I thought I was on my own through the tides of time all alone
But this divinity flowing deep within makes me knowing everything I know everything and more
Behind the sapphire of your eyes there's something I recognize but can't remember what or why
 
 
Xibalba
Set Higher High through the darkness of Xibalba
Cradle of fire conquers sceneries painted in blood

It's burning my eyes scorching my lungs
Sacred, eternal be my ache for I'm the One

Cold place of Fright
My shield-woven Might been forged in love - I'm a fighter"

Dark demons beware,
I've come to bring your downfall
It's time for a change
The End of your Days

I trade my own life for a moment in time

Set Higher High through the darkness of Xibalba
Cradle of fire conquers sceneries painted in blood

Steel sword of the Moon
It'll be over soon
I'm bracing my own only heart for sacrifice

Arrogant Lords betrayed their own words
A hero would cast them to oblivion
Been questioning Life my Destiny has been found, growing deeper

I trade my own life for a moment in time

Set Higher High through the darkness of Xibalba
Cradle of fire conquers sceneries painted in blood

"Sleep in darkness Xibalba for no harm way you cause again
Your Downfall shall mean Life in Peace under The Watchful Eyes of the Skies
I am ascending"

Taking off high through the darkness of Xibalba
Cradle of fire eternal journey in destiny's hands

Through the darkness of Xibalba

"I'm eternal... for the Stars I leave!"
