Mystic Places of Dawn
They lasted as long as a spark shines
But their shining was so bright
That it was caught forever
In the spectre of time
What was a fact became a legend
What was reality became a faded canvas
In the mausoleum of civilizations

Landscapes of untold antiquity
Unchanged are calling
To an orgy of colours and shapes
In a drunkenness with pure fantasy

Their names cause awe and awake
Forgotten senses

The eerie valley of Pnath
The majestic Lemuria
Sarnath the doomed...
And names that echo
In the labyrinths and the cavernous
Dephts of chaos
Mystic places of dawn

Solo: Sotiris

Maybe we, ourselves want to forget
Helping the truth to grow old
And be deformed from the wrinkles
Of uncertainty
Afraid where the path backwards will
Lead us
We prefer to be protected
Under the shelter of ignorance

He who stares back
Through the glass of centuries
Will also see his reflection

Solo: Sotiris

The eerie valley of Pnath
The majestic Lemuria
Sarnath the doomed...
And names that echo
In the labyrinths and the cavernous
Depths of chaos
Mystic places of dawn
 
 
Pale Beauty of the Past
The mist unfolds its veil
As the night falls in the forest
The moist wind forces the trees
To sing their sorrow
For centuries they are standing still
Like a petrified dream
Trapped bodies in a wooden web,
Tall towers of another epoch

This sweet melancholy
That is brought by the precious memory
The pale beauty of the past
Is kept in the whisper of the wind

Only the fragile heart
Can understand the charm of the old
The best things in life are those we can't
Have yet, still we hope
Blessed will be the day
When the circle will be complete
Then the song of the muse will be heard
Again the mourning of the trees will stop

Solo: Sotiris

This sweet melancholy
That is brought by the precious memory
The pale beauty of the past
Lost in the vortex of time
 
 
Return to Cathage
When the fields are red
Like a crimson robe
And the name of the "king" who wears
This robe is man
The waves of wrath have been released
To drown the "sinister" and different

Noble causes sink in oceans of bodies
Where flesh and steel is one
Memories of ancient wars
Remove the frozen bonds of time.

Solo: Sotiris

Return to Carthage
Ages have passed
And "savage" hordes have bowed
To the "true" gods

Glory is a whore that seduces even a
Priest but few are those who taste her
Kiss upon the piles of those that she
Betrayed

Return to Carthage
In bitter irony
The proud city lies raped

Gods of order, gods of chaos:
"Till the next time,
When our pawns will move again

In the fields of our endless battle"...
 
 
Crescent Moon
The sand beneath your feet
A yellow carpeting
The palace of wilderness
Only king and servant is you
Searching for the pyramid
That guards the emerald board

It was a crescent moon
When you have been initiated
In the science of the black earth,
And the optimism of youth
Pushed you in quests
Into the paper worlds
Of the libraries of Cairo

Crescent moon
Two sides of the same coin
The poor in mind are satisfied
With what they see

Crescent moon
And they bear the sign of imperfection
Because they miss the other side
The invisible

Crescent moon
Few words carved with diamond
Could draw the curtains
That cover the glassy cage of senses
The warm touch of the starlight
(Magnes) will be the proof
And the philosopher's stone your trophy

Grab the golden rope and climb
The imaginary walls of your thoughts
You may fall but at least you'll have tried
 
 
Chasing the Chimera
My mood is like the weather
It changes with unexpected ways
Creating a mosaic
Based on the antithesis
Of cold and warm colours

If you could read in my eyes
You would discover a shade of grey
When I smile
Because even when (I am) collecting
Moments of happiness
My mind descends in my shrine
To pray in front of the candle of life

And its flesh parts are slowly melting
Slipping down like white worms

(The) walls around are decorated
With nailed butterflies
Each one a happy thought,
Pretty but old and lifeless

The thirst for joy is never gratified
Only grows as pain is interrupting
Our wishes
And "help" us learn through an-alphabet
Of scars
 
 
The Underwater Garden
Melancholy ascended in the surface
Knowing that she'll have forever a lair
In the underwater garden
Serene the azure body that filled
The landscape crowled as ever

The sound here is a word without a
Meaning nothing can agitate the
Monotony
The new and the old event roll indolent
Embraced in a circle

The one takes the place of the other
Returning continuously in the beginning

What didn't belonged in the fluid kingdom
Has now become its integral part
The plunder that was stolen
From the marvellous world of the unknown
Is hidden deep
Imprisoned from the seaweeds
Ornamented with the flowers of the sea

Every piece has its own story
Every creation is also a piece
Of its creator
Behind the coral gate of the garden
Are sealed emotions

Solo: Sotiris
 
 
Behind the Iron Mask
In an empty room eyes without a face
They are stirring other images,
Glimpses of a distant life,
Of a gone life

The hands cannot identify the face
Behind the iron mask

Dim is within on the plane of the mind
A kneeled spirit under the boot of fear
Cleansed with torture
Trapped in purity by the whip

Daggers from sound penetrate
Resistance behind each one,
A holy inquisitor
Mouths reveal the presence of
Haunted beings unworthy to be said alive

Open the window
Release the spirit from this empty body
Behind the iron mask

Draining pleasures from mental wounds
A need opposed to false excuses
Unveils the greatest beast
 
 
(Morpheus) The Dreamlord
I was sailing in the sea of lethargy
Upon an empty dream
When land appeared
And filled the endless horizon
White pillars from marble
Deep into a garden
Were shining like guiding stars

The dreamlord

A frozen voice from inside
Poured out in my dreamworld
The voice of morpheus:
"Taste the fruit of knowledge
Drink the juice of wisdom
And you'll see what eyes can't see"

The dreamlord

"You have reached utopia"

Solo: Chris

In the garden of illusions
Encircled from the pillars
I found my idol
But clouds filled the purple sky
And shed their crystal tears
And the idol became muddy

The dreamlord

"The right explanation of symbols
Depends on you
The sun will send me away"

Solo: Sotiris

In the
Place where the idol was,
Appeared a white flower
 
 
Mythos
(part 1: Elegy; part 2: Time Unbounded)
(Instrumental)
 
 
Erebus
Waiting the drawing of the underworld
None to share your fears
The shadow of Charon falls
Upon the stone of hopes
The body is paralysing
The air is too thick to enter
A cataclysm is spawned into the regions of the soul
The cry of the first time when you were free from the womb,
Is the same but now you are entering the night

Chorus:
Most try to understand why they are born if they must die
Life seems pointless with an end
They wonder if existence remains after death or Erebus is the final state

Charon:
''You knew from the begging
That the end will come in time.
Yet, so many things you left undone
So many more unknown
In a life that is but a dream
Into a gods dream."

Chorus:
Most try to understand why they are born if they must die
Life seems pointless with an end

Charon:
"Existence is a choice that remains after death
Erebus is my mental state."
 
 
Another Reality
In a dream I saw a man
A face not strange to me
He stared at me while I was asleep and whispered in my ear
He led me through the corridors of my ancestral home
He stopped one step before one wall, and then I fainted

In the eldest wall of my home I found the entrance of a crypt
The view I saw was so obscure, alien remnants, pentagrams and candles of the floor

The crypt was made as a passage to the gates of reality
And just when I realised the truth I was in a different shape

I hear thousands of sounds like bestial laughs, deafening flutes and daemonic choirs
Possibilities fall under control, unfolding new dimensions
 
 
Temple of the Lost Race
Preserved from the ancient years
When earth was just a newborn star
The proof of a distant truth
Arrogantly stands mocking the wind
Guarding mysteries that man has not unchained

An emblem of power has remained, a fallen temple...

Faded pictures all over the walls
Projecting a horrid state of sanity
Figures that don't belong to a human race
Symbols and maps
Architectural miracles carrying the history of a race
That now seems lost

Chorus:
Fears born from the past
Temple of the lost race
Deep inside the heart of the pole
An old ruler of the stars

Buried in a chest from glass, the answers about our path
Eternal life can't rest asleep it lurks beneath as force of will
Ancient are the rules set on this world

An emblem of power will remain, a fallen temple...

Chorus:
Fears born from the past
Temple of the lost race
Deep inside the heart of the pole an old ruler of the stars
 
 
Setting of the Two Suns
In a world of endless light, into the boundless space
Two suns the only gods, two burning holes in the sky

Without a warning the two suns slowly faded
Abandoning their only children unprotected from the cold

Down on their knees, they have total conscience,
As night drains their spirit, the inner light of logic
Leaving the bodies to walk this blind planet
Stumbling to others that now are animals, crying light...

Chorus:
Setting of the two suns...

Then a light came from the horizon
Devouring the land
It wasn't sun!

It took a minute for a flame to become a fire
The great cities will all become ashes,
Drifting with the wind
