Brotherhood of the Fallen Knights
When alliance has the value of a broken royal seal
Heroic is the denial to bent to a flamboyant mighty siege

Falcons are their arrows like a forest seem their shields
Catapults are spitting wrath causing a waterfall of collapsing castle walls

In anvils was methodically forged a diplomacy of the sword
A plot has provided the rope to hang the bloody flag of war

Chorus:
"Vow that no truce will stop the conflict"
Fierce if a purpose born from greed.
Brotherhood of the fallen knights
With the emblem of the morning star

Justified all actions must be for honour to rest untainted
Tomorrow has to car the lessons that will nourish the naire

Chorus:
"Vow that no truce will stop the conflict"
Fierce if a purpose born from greed
Brotherhood of the fallen knights
With the emblem of the morning star
 
 
The Eldest Cosmonaut
Shine...
In the mines of the darkest star
The one no jewel can never shine
A rode is left to point to Styx,
Both its end can lead, both can deceive

No traps can seize, the eldest cosmonaut
As time stands still, incapable to breathe

Once in clay I allowed the decades
To become a stone wall around me
But at least I became the wall of decades

Can you feel the wrinkles on my hand?
They are yours
They are lines I once
Drew upon the sand...

Chorus:
So bring your light to me
I have a boat unseen a labyrinthine sphere
The gnosis of the eldest cosmonaut
And maybe you will see
That I am what your mind can never... Seal

Travelling the luminiferous waters of space
Through the stellar isthmus
It can lead it can deceive

No traps can seize me, no tombs can seal me

Chorus:
So bring your light to me
I have a boat unseen a labyrinthine sphere
The gnosis of the eldest cosmonaut
And maybe you will see
That I am what your mind can never... Seal
 
 
Marble Smiling Face
Black leather gloves on soft thin hands
Red Celtic knives, sharp as your touch

Chorus:
Hunting eagle proudly land
On this island that's my heart

Twin mirrors blue
Cold lakes concealing fire
Red coral hair
A dazzling ruby dome

Chorus:
Hunting eagle proudly land
On this island that's my heart
Elegance combined with grace
Dressed your marble smiling face
 
 
Underworld act 1
Tranquillity... How necessary, how boring it can be
The liquid void has no ears to receive the consolation of the surface

An ignorant:
"Maybe it's better that way
What doesn't touch doesn't hurt."

The innocence of a swan gliding on a desolate lake
Can't be sensed and therefore can't bring jealousy

Entire worlds full of wonder are banished to rest only in few visionary minds, haunting them with their glowing beauty

Fortunately, there are always
Those with the forked tongue
To bring the borders closer

But there are also tribes of inferior beings,
Beings so proudly inferior necessary to give worth to the higher
But not without cost...

They liberate ordeals
Their negative thought is the fungus, the grim vestment of the relic

The leader:
The eroding frankincense of marasmous
Can become intolerable

Their region is warm like a blanket
But narrow as a coffin, an underworld

Fortunately there are always those with the forked tongue
That bring the borders closer...
 
 
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
 
 
The Crypt
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

Chorus:
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
 
 
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
 
 
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."
 
 
Underworld act 2
Our patience has been dried away
Since a long time...
And the thirst, the need to unfold desire
Transforming it into a touchable object

How bitter was the taste of emptiness in our ill formed mouths
But it was natural as our ideas was based on wishes younger
Weed as fruits at first

A scholar:
''Your fathers knew
These worlds by heart
Even those that never ever crossed
The eerie side.''

We came to see the upper world
Where colours dance and the air moves bright
We came to see...

As a cat with her claws extended orchestrates a merciless grasp
Weapons move damn swiftly in an attacking stance ready to cut through
And open doors crimson

A scholar:
"Your fathers knew
These worlds by heart
Even those that never ever crossed
The eerie side."

Divine mother:
''Let me heal your wounds with mine
Now that you have deceived the night.''

The leader:
"Rest assured that none of us
Will ever lose the way to you.
These stains are also traces
And they clean conscience
As it is their duty to do so.
The order was strict,
Conquer or be conquered."

Our patience has been dried away since a long time...
And the thirst, the need to unfold desire
Transforming it into a touchable object

The leader:
Hold no more your horses
Let them run like lava
Melting stone and granite
In hollow caves.

Raging Victory acts as shepherd leading the way
 
 
The Eldest Cosmonaut
(Dark Version)
Shine...
In the mines of the darkest star
The one no jewel can never shine
A rode is left to point to Styx,
Both its end can lead, both can deceive

No traps can seize, the eldest cosmonaut
As time stands still, incapable to breathe

Once in clay I allowed the decades
To become a stone wall around me
But at least I became the wall of decades

Can you feel the wrinkles on my hand?
They are yours
They are lines I once
Drew upon the sand...

Chorus:
So bring your light to me
I have a boat unseen a labyrinthine sphere
The gnosis of the eldest cosmonaut
And maybe you will see
That I am what your mind can never... Seal

Travelling the luminiferous waters of space
Through the stellar isthmus

No traps can seize me, no tombs can seal me

Chorus:
So bring your light to me
I have a boat unseen a labyrinthine sphere
The gnosis of the eldest cosmonaut
And maybe you will see
That I am what your mind can never... Seal
