The Eldest Cosmonaut
(video remix)
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
 
 
Underworld act 3
Spoken:
A millennium passed away, small forests became jungles,
Mountains were devoured from sand violently exiled from sand violently exiled from vast deserts with the help of hands made from storms.
It was as if someone wanted to erase the traces.
The triumphant laughs of liberation are forgotten.
The world that once seemed new and vibrant turned pale and old. Why?
Maybe because of the strange inhabitants were to eager to forget the path that led them through.

In their journey they were leaving behind not only spoken:
Not only part of their body but also part of their mind.
And they became so tired, all they demanded was to rest. It wasn't difficult.
There was not any apparent changes.
So a strange kind of sleep.
Fell among the lot.
The more they cultivated this habit.
To seek in the deep matters of Lethargy.
The more their environment changed.
It was a curious transformation.
It was as if someone wanted to erase the traces.
However there is one trace that will ever remain.
Week as a whisper it can reopen the way.
Just listen.
Your Fathers knew these words by heart even those that never crossed, the eerie side.
 
 
Finale
(Instrumental)
 
 
Woman of the Rings
(remastered)
Her mind is trapped as a bird in a golden cage in a neutral grey room
But while the others are content to hold their bars as shields, against my open asymmetry

She dives beneath the surface of what things are supposed to be, where thoughts avoid the rest
Lay down the Earth, lay down the sky

Elishanth mistress of the wind
Ring the bell and the winter will spring
Elishanth

Learned to expect the fall
No attempt to break the spell
Sad is the woman of the rings and I can cease her pain

Ride on your silver horse to the deserts of the moon
Sing to the hunting wolves and fulfil your everlasting need for...

Pretend, that nothing can change and the next thing
That you'll claim is that you did your best
There is a voice heard only from the heart
When she is ignored her cry is sadness

Elishanth mistress of the wind
Ring the bell and the winter will spring
Elishanth
 
 
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
