Indigo - Prologue
Quaestio nostra est aeterna
Ultima requies fons vitae
Sed nos eam novam existimemus
 
 
The Obsessive Devotion
Don't you ever blind me
Don't be a foolish thief
-Am I?
Don't you ever bring yourself to grief

Don't you ever blind me
Don't ever trick my mind
-Did I?
Don't you think that you can lie to me
-Did I lie?

Fortuna exprimitur artibus falsis
Et mendacem memorem esse oportet

If he is your moon, I will be your earth
To which you can return, safely or injured.

I feel only misery for myself when I
Look through the eyes of someone else

Don't you choke and bind me
Don't be a bleeding heart
-Am I?
Fold then walk away or play your cards
-Let us play!

Fortuna exprimitur artibus falsis
Et mendacem memorem esse oportet

If he is your moon, I will be your earth
To which you can return, safely or injured.

I feel only misery for myself when I
Look through the eyes of someone else
I can't even recognize the path which has to be
Taken to enter infinity.

-Don't you dare me
I dare you
-You don't care about me
I care about you
-Don't you touch me
-Liar

Fortuna exprimitur artibus falsis
Et mendacem memorem esse oportet

Adoratio permanebit
Quotiens me eges, adero

I prefer to be unhappy with you,
Rather than being depressed without you.
I belong to someone, I'm dedicated to
Nothing lasts forever but you, you do:

I prefer to be a lair just like you
To fulfill my deepest desires
I belong to someone, I'm dedicated to
But all that I desire is you

One thoughtless moment passes in slow motion
As I lie down, I realise that:
All I wish is to get rid of this Obsessive Devotion

Venia ad vitam aeternam
Non mibi, non tibi, sed nobis

Hit me as you can
Beat me as you wish
Liar

Fortuna mutual coniuncti
Per tota saecula futura

I have raised myself for you
But now I regret

Venia ad vitam aeternam

This is the end
 
 
Menace of Vanity
Comprehensive expressions of your social weakness
Vented on your countless made up enemies

I cannot know how you feel
When you don't say anything

We don't care what you say
We'll never join the games you play
We won't bleed for all your sins
We never followed your way now so
We don't care anymore
How you'll perform your last encore

Your misplaced sense of superiority
The result of your unbearable form of Vanity

I cannot know what you see
When you don't show anything;

We don't care what you say
We'll never join the games you play
We won't bleed for all your sins
We never followed your way now so
We don't care anymore
How you'll perform your last encore

I cannot know how you feel
When you don't say anything
I cannot know what you see
When you don't show anything

We don't care what you say
We'll never join the games you play
We won't bleed for all your sins
We never followed your way now so
We don't care anymore
How you'll perform your last encore
 
 
Chasing the Dragon
Free my mind
Heal my scars
Erase the past
Dark days to forget
And memories to last
In my heart

Free me now

Make me forget
And forgive
There's no use
To go on and live
Show me a way
To the sun

Heal my scars

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

Let my eyes take in
The beauty that's here
That's left on this earth
My ears long to hear
A melody

Give me sight

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

Poison is slowly seeping through my veins
Stealing the only dignity in me

I pick them up and let them fall
To cause your pain and hit them all

One more life to live is what I want

I'll take the joy away from them
See to it, they will all be damned

One more chance to heal what I have harmed

The dragon is wreak havoc in my brain
Plays my emotion, a never ending game

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

One more life to live for me

I want the night just to colour the day
The morning to chase all my nightmares away
Don't you deny that we're all human beings
We all have our flaws that can make us obscene

Obscene...

Give me what I want
Give me what I need right now
That's what I want
That's what I need, get it!

Dolendo novit mortalis vitam

Tell me what I want
Tell me what I need right now
That's what I want
That's all I need, cure me

Dolendo discit mori mortalis
Losers

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here
 
 
Never Enough
Can't you hear me screaming, once again?
Voices you can't hear
Because you are consumed and incontent
With everlasting greed

Don't you see me on my hands and knees?
Begging and bleeding
You're smiling as you bite the hand that feeds
But will you never see?

Always wanting what your eyes can't see needing what your arms can't reach
Thinking you are in need
Always hearing what your ears can't hear feeling what your hands can't touch
Thinking you're incomplete

It was,
Never enough that I gave to you
All of the horror that you've put me through
How can I make up my mind this time?
This is where I will draw the line

Sacrificed my life to be with you
Why did you leave me?
There's nothing more from me you can consume
Cause you are incomplete

Always wanting what your eyes can't see needing what your arms can't reach
Thinking you are in need
Always hearing what your ears can't hear feeling what your hands can't touch
Thinking you're incomplete

It was,
Never enough that I gave to you
All of the horror that you've put me through
How can I make up my mind this time?
This is where I will draw the line

Everlasting need
Would you please?
Answer me and
Make me complete

Everlasting greed
Would you please?
Set me free
Fulfill all my needs and make complete

It was,
Never enough that I gave to you
All of the horror that you've put me through
How can I make up my mind this time?
This is where I will draw the line

Never again will I be with you
No promise eternal carrying us through
I finally made up my mind this time
This is the end, I've drawn the line
Never enough to devour your greed
 
 
La'petach Chatat Rovetz - The Final Embrace
(Instrumental)
 
 
Death of a Dream - The Embrace That Smothers part VII
I followed your rules
A willing fool
Branded by shame

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I bear so many scars, hit me hard
Time to change we have to rearrange
For this has gone too far, way too far

Creating new laws and living by unwritten rules
Restricting us

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I can't let go

Creating new spins on ancient creed to fit your views
Denying us

You created this world
Where honesty is not allowed
You created this world
Where ignorance is being taught

You created this world
Where I am all, you'll never be
You've been drilling these
Such falsely-based philosophies :in me

The curtain has fallen
There's no one behind
Corrected one mistake
But I am still around

Our fight is over
My scars will leave a stain
You thought that it was all easy
But I will still remain

You created yourself
Based on nothing else but lies
You created yourself
Where all your aspiration died

You created yourself
Where I am all, you'll never be
You're deceiving me
Now I am forcing you to see ...this

The curtain has fallen
There's no one behind
Corrected one mistake
But I am still around

Our fight is over
My scars will leave a stain
You thought that it was all easy
But I will still remain

Take my hand, I'm sinking, I'm reaching out for you

Can't you see what you've done to all of us?
Torturing me has no use here anymore

I followed your rules
A willing fool
Branded by shame

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I bear so many scars, hit me hard
Time to change we have to rearrange
For this has gone too far, way too far

Creating new laws and living by unwritten rules
Restricting us

My soul suffers from your hostile ways
I can't let go

Creating new spins on ancient creed to fit your views
Denying us

The curtain has fallen
There's no one behind
Corrected one mistake
But I am still around

Our fight is over
My scars will leave a stain
You thought that it was all easy
But I will still remain

Your time is over
I'm taking what's mine
You thought that you could keep me
Under your thumb and mind

Take my hand, I'm sinking, I'm reaching out for you
In my dying dream
 
 
Living a Lie - The Embrace That Smothers part VIII
Don't believe what you see
Believe in me
In my reality
I am a man of God

God, can't you hear that I'm begging you?

Don't believe what you hear
Believe in me
And I will reappear
Salvation here at last

At last someone to answers all my prayers

Hope is a desert running dry
Deep inside
You refuse to face the facts
But pray for life
Find salvations in distress
We will wait
For the day you'll break out and
Re-awake

Lies

Don't believe what you see
Believe in me
And my reality
Eternity indeed

Indeed it's the end all and be all there's

Hope is a desert running dry
Deep inside
You refuse to face the facts
But pray for life
Find salvations in distress
We will wait
For the day you'll break out and
Re-awake

Lies

Domine lesu, demitte nobis debita nostra,
Salva nos ab igne inferiori,
Perduc in caelum omnes animas
Praesertim eas, quae misericordiae tuae
Maxime indigent.

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
Amen

Living a lie

Human power
Will devour
Our senses
Bring us to forget
Human sources will not save
The power of faith
Heals us all

Hope is a desert running dry
Deep inside
You refuse to face the facts
But pray for life
Find salvations in distress
We will wait
For the day you'll break out and
Re-awake
And we wait for the day
To discover there's no way
I can't wait at this rate
It's too little and too late
To live this lie

Living a lie
 
 
Fools of Damnation - The Embrace That Smothers part IX
Go for it
Bow to the supremacy
Go for it at last

You do believe, so I can say
That you are owned by me

Go for it
Bow to the supremacy
Go for it at last

You do believe, so let us pray
For all those fools that be

Fool
Dance with me again
I am your destiny
Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

Fool
Kneel for me again
I am your agony
Walk my way, I will never set you free

Kneel for me unknowing fool
Bow to the supremacy
Kneel for me unworthy pig
Die for the divinity

Go for it
Bow to the supremacy
Go for it at last

You do believe, so you display
All that we want to see

Fool
Dance with me again
I am your destiny
Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

Fool
Kneel for me again
I am your agony
Walk my way, I will never set you free

Go for it
Just do it
Walk my way just to serve me

Go for it
Just do it
Kneel for me and obey me

A humble genuflection for the onrushing ascendancy
Not able to turn back anymore

Bow to me
Bow to the supremacy

Kneel for me
Die for the divinity

Bow to me
Go for it
Just do it
Die for the divinity

Believing is the cure
Religion is like opium
You'd better feed them all
Before they start eating you

Et fictum fit factum

Ne timeas obscurum
Id autem cognoscas

Ne timeas obscurum
Primum id cognosce
Deinde iudica
Post iudicandum demum age

Fool
Dance with me again
I am your destiny
Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

Fool
Kneel for me again
I am your agony
Walk my way, I will never set you free

Go for it
Just do it
 
 
Beyond Belief
Wisdom, knowledge, science

Develops, always, better, faster
This is the final end

A voice in the wilderness
Fights a futile war
Because the strong are deaf
More so then before

Massive disregard
Shows what to expect
Scars on top of scars
Racing toward a future we don't have

Fear is taking over me, there is nothing I can see

The Future is as certain
As life will come to an end
When time feels like a burden
We struggle with our certain death

Wisdom, knowledge, science

Develops, always, better, faster

We have to guide ourselves
For we cannot stand
One more false pretence getting out of hand

Now fear is the driving force
Taking over us and finding out this source
May turn out to be too much to bear

Fear is taking over me, there is nothing I can see
How could this have come to be

The Future is as certain
As life will come to an end
When time feels like a burden
We struggle with our certain death

Wisdom, knowledge, science

Develops, always, better, faster
Defeats us

Science, knowledge, wisdom
Destroys us, always, ever, faster
This is the final end

Thirteen moons
The path to walk
Thirteen moons
The path to talk
Restore all that belongs to us

Thirteen moons
The way to speak
Thirteen moons
Is what we seek
Restore all that was left behind

The Future is as certain
As life will come to an end
When time feels like a burden
We struggle with our certain death

The Future is as certain
As life will come to an end
When time feels like a burden
We struggle with our certain death

Wisdom, knowledge, science

Develops, always, better, faster
Defeats us

Science, knowledge, wisdom
Destroys us, always, ever, faster

This is the final end
 
 
Safeguard to Paradise
Memories that fade away
Have not left their mark
But you live on, every single day
In many different ways

It's the truth between his cunning lies
That hands him his suspicious alibis
Persuading with your force will never be the way
To our destiny

Suddenly we've lost the force
To close our cursed doors
No one seems to realise
That wolves are in disguise

It's the truth between his cunning lies
That hands him his suspicious alibis
Persuading with your force will never be the way
To our destiny

Your engine was so strong
But the road was just too long
Hope is not the end
So never lose the faith

As long as we can say
They can never take away
Our freedom, the most precious thing we've ever had
The reward from the blood, we've ever shed

His quest for higher truth, life of eternal youth has just begun,
In spite of being on the run
Many virgins wait for him to come
Persuading with your force will never be the way
To our destiny
Our destiny
 
 
Sancta Terra
A place which I have searched a thousand times
To finally free myself
Forever wasn't ever long enough
I will refrain

I feel a passion washing over me
To shed the skin I'm in
This evolution will empower me
Now truth begins

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I'm where I want to be

It's a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you'll see I'm right
It's a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It's a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It's a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see

Take one step closer to the borderline
Where night and day unite
This mortal coil I've gone and left behind
On holy soil

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I'm where I want to be

It's a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you'll see I'm right
It's a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It's a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It's a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see

You will not find me
I am safe in here
I am where I want to be
So leave me now in peace

And you will not find me
I am safe in here
I'm where I want to be

It's a place where a wish will be granted
Come, you'll see I'm right
It's a force that will live on within you
Dark as day is light
It's a place where your dreams will be slanted
And will always be
It's a force that was sent out to win you
Just you wait and see
 
 
The Divine Conspiracy
Quaestio nostra est aeterna
Ultima requies fons vitae
Sed eam ut novam ducemus

We will never know all possibilities to predict what is to come
And so we have illusions to think freely

Once we had been
Rich from within
Did not try to reach
What we couldn't achieve
Because once we had been
Able to win
From the need to succeed

We need to be innocent to live the life we've lived for so long
We need to be blind enough to live the life we live right now

Who possesses your time also possesses your mind

Once we had been
Rich from within
Did not try to reach
What we couldn't achieve
Because once we had been
Able to win
From the need to succeed

We need to be innocent to live the life we've lived for so long
We need to be deaf enough to live the life we live right now

Reach out, touch infinity
Life is just a memory
Time is not the entity
Like it used to be

The Divine Conspiracy
Opens up the reality
Time is not the entity
Like it claims to be

Once we had been
Rich from within
Did not try to reach
What we couldn't achieve
Because once we had been
Able to win
From the need to succeed

We need to be innocent to live the life we've lived for so long
We need to be insensitive to live the life and so ignore it all

Who possesses your time also possesses your mind

Who possesses your time
-Mislead us all, we are not in control
Also possesses your mind
-There is no trace that will lead to this place

Reach out, touch infinity
Life is just a memory
Time is not the entity
Like it used to be

The Divine Conspiracy
Opens up the reality
Time is not the entity
Like it claims to be

Desperately we all
Clutch at the last straw
We stumble and fall
Countdown to die
To heal it all

We will never reach
Our capacities, no more
We cannot expand
Our boundaries

Once we had been
Rich from within
Did not try to reach
What we couldn't achieve
Because once we had been
Able to win
From the need to succeed

We need to be innocent to live the life we've lived for so long
We need to be insensitive to breathe so we can take it all for granted

Reach out, touch infinity
Life is just a memory
Time is not the entity
Like it used to be

The Divine Conspiracy
Opens up the reality
Time is not the entity
Like it claims to be
