Equilibrio Overture
(Instrumental)
 
 
My Song of Creation
(Act 1 Sc. 1)
Lady Sophia:
I am all of that which is not shaped by it's past
The beginning, the end, everything in between
My mind creates, divides, separates...
A burden for all time
I've found peace within myself which truly isn't mine
Look into my eyes
Infernal passion pends
Let my song of creation commence


Part II (Creation)

Lady Sophia:
A scorching earth a blinding sky,
I close my eyes and visualise
In a vigilante storm the shape seems to appear
I breathe the wind, my tears fill the lakes a part of me starts to be
In this vast symphony the melody is clear

Ancient spells I whisper
Moulding clay to live
Creating skies and seas

All the beauty in my world
All that is honest and is true
I will pour into you, my Sister
The guardian of all that is good
This task I appoint to you
Cherish it, remember it

For every right is wrong
For every light is darkness
For every day is night
For every song is silence

Ensemble:
For every right is wrong
For every day is night
Ancient spells I whisper
Moulding clay to live
Forging light and darkness
Fasten their emotions to live forever free
 
 
The Traveller
(Act 1 Sc. 3)
Diegu:
I can't be sure of where I stand
Who I am
All I know, I am alone - all alone with my thoughts

Dissipating - I feel nothing
Still a presence's surely watching
Always watching me
30 years now - All my life
It's breathing down my neck
I'm ready for...

The pain in me
Bring the pain in me
Time has told me nothing but lies
All of this time
I've depended on lies

Dissipating - I feel nothing
Still a presence's surely watching
Always watching me
30 years - All my life
It's breathing down my neck
I'm ready...

This feels... I was mistaken
All that I feel is love
There's no need to be scared now
All I foresee is clear
As clear and as bright as can be
I've been a fool for all to see

This feels... I was mistaken
All that I feel is love
There's no need to be scared now
All I foresee is clear

I'm sure I was mistaken
Now all I need - is time
 
 
Last Breath
(Act 1 Sc. 5)
Diegu:
This is it...
My life is frail and bruised
I've never known what others knew
But now I know - what's left to do?
I've followed my path

Through sour & sweet
Travelled along without questioning all
I've been told...
Guided by faith

Diegu, Death:
Look at me
And see my eyes being dimmed
Grab my hand
I'm not sure I can withstand

Death:
Some tend to give while others take
It matters not: there is no escape

Diegu:
All that remains is for me to die
To follow through to the other side

Death:
Aaargh... What is this?
I can't take you down?!
This cannot be!
No one defies me!

Diegu:
I've never felt more alive:
Rising up in front of Death's eyes

Diegu, Death:
Grab my hand
And feel my strength within
Look at me
And we see a new beginning

Diegu:
I seldom smile, often I cry...
The sour-sweet of tears, seldom I taste
My lips are dry

When Death passed me by
It flashed before my eyes
I've seen how we will thrive
My heart is filled with hope
I won't be overthrown
I must not feel afraid - oh no I won't!

Death:
It is I who holds the Sceptre of Death
Heed my words Diegu: I will smother your very last breath
 
 
Divided We Stand
(Act 1 Sc. 6)
Aveline:
All my life, I've put my trust in my believe
A miracle: with faith, you can achieve...
For years now, we're suppressed by the evil that lives behind these walls...

Aveline˘s followers:
Lord Primos, we promise you: your empire shall fall

Aveline:
If only he would see, he would have a change of heart!
We have followed you throughout our lives
Fighting for the cause that we claim right
Why won't they understand
It's not much we demand
It's just a point of view that makes us stand, divide

Lord Primos:
All my life, I've put my trust in my blade
You disagree? I dare you to differentiate!
These rebels, these traitors!
We shall crush them one by one!

Aveline, I'm disappointed in what you have become...
Why won't you see, why won't you have a change of heart?

Lord Primos˘ followers:
We have followed you throughout our lives

Lord Primos:
Why won't she see just what I am doing here
I've put my faith aside to make this world a stronger place

Aveline:
Why won't he see just what I am doing here
His mind is corrupted with might...

Lord Primos:
I've stood for my believes throughout my life
Fighting for what I thought would be right

Aveline's followers:
We have followed you throughout our lives
Fighting for the cause that we claim right

Aveline, Aveline's followers:
Why won't they understand
It's not much we demand
It's just a point of view that makes us stand, divide
 
 
The Conflict
(Act 1 Sc. 8)
Diegu:
Aveline, I'm glad you wish to end this status quo

Aveline, Diegu:
On our way to find a way

Aveline:
To set away our differences
My heart is true, I hope my adversary feels just like I do

Diegu:
No one knows what lies ahead

Ensemble:
Primos and Aveline joining hands?

Diegu:
Peace at last, that is unless he pretends

Lord Primos:
Aveline, so glad you're here Ń now where do I begin
In a way, we both want change
I too am tired of this fight
Yes, in the end I'm sure you'll come to terms with all that serves you right

Diegu:
No one knows what lies ahead

Ensemble:
Primos and Aveline joining hands?

Diegu:
Peace at last, that is unless he pretends

Aveline:
You might pretend to be someone I can rely on - it's so hard
You might pretend to be someone I can rely on

Lord Primos:
Trust in me
Yes, my heart is true
And believe the things I reveal to you
Please, trust in me
Yes, my heart is true
And believe the things I reveal to you

Diegu:
May fortune smile upon us all

Death:
The time has come - you know what must be done

Lord Primos:
Yes - I know, no reason to be hasty

Death:
Don't be a fool - you have to follow through

Lord Primos:
I am aware - just sharpening my senses

Death:
His eyes turn red, his hatred grows... grows
To quench his thirst he will spill blood... blood

Lord Primos:
Aveline, it's all so clear
The future begins here
It's a time for new ideas
We'll set away our differences
The heart is true, I am sincere - just tell me what you want to hear

Diegu:
No one knows what lies ahead

Ensemble:
Primos and Aveline joining hands?

Diegu:
Peace at last, that is unless he pretends

Aveline:
You might pretend to be someone I can rely on - it's so hard
You might pretend to be someone I can rely on

Lord Primos:
Trust in me
Yes, my heart is true
And believe the things I reveal to you
Please, trust in me
Yes, my heart is true
And believe the things I reveal to you

Diegu:
May fortune smile upon us all

Aveline, Diegu:
A new dawn arrives
When we turn the page
And truly change our ways

Lord Primos:
Could it be really all I need, is to feed my hunger for power?
Could it be really all I need - is to feed?

Aveline, Lord Primos:
We share a common fate: our lives are intertwined
For all time...

Lord Primos:
Unless... I intervene... and take control...
Yes... that's it: I will fill the void inside my soul... with power... I must!
My heart: an empty shell... goodbye
Aveline... I have chosen my path
Now grand me strength!

Death:
Yes...

Diegu:
This will be your last mistake Primos!

Death:
No!

Diegu:
Hurry Aveline, we must leave at once!

Lord Primos:
Intertwined... for all time...

Death:
Rise!
 
 
Destiny Unveiled
(Act 2 Sc. 1)
Diegu:
I've seen your face, inside my dreams
You're haunting me

Lady Sophia:
Your path in life has led you here: to where you stand
I am the presence in your head, lighting the way

Diegu:
I recall your voice,
It soothed me all these years
Tell me what you are
Please tell me why I'm here - with you

Lady Sophia:
I am all of that which isn't shaped by its past
Now all you need, is what I'll be
Sophia - your friend

Diegu:
Many years ago...
I died of a disease
Someone has brought me back to life
Do I owe you my life?

Lady Sophia:
Look into my eyes
With tears they overflow
And you're my only hope

Diegu:
I see her fall onto her knees
My destiny's unveiled:
"The one who'll save us all"

Lady Sophia:
As the weight drops down
And his face turns white
He realizes:

Diegu:
I am all there is
And all this time...
How can I be he who'll save us all?
Why should I be the one?
This cannot be... no - this cannot be!

Lady Sophia:
Diegu - remember your death
You died... I brought you back to life
I ask you: please fulfill this task
Your path in life has led you here: to where you stand
Now that your destiny's unveiled
Do what you can...

Diegu:
No matter what I say
This task will lead my way
Your world won't cease to be
This burden is fit for me - so it seems...

Lady Sophia:
Look into my eyes
With tears they overflow
And you're my only hope

Diegu:
I see her fall onto her knees
My destiny's unveiled:
"The one who'll save us all"

Lady Sophia:
As the weight drops down
And his face turns white
He realizes:

Diegu:
I am all there is

Lady Sophia:
Oh... my Diegu, you I trust in
Oh... my Diegu, don't fail me
 
 
My Time of Need
(Act 2 Sc. 3)
Aveline:
I still remember - when I put my faith in you
Every prayer I made would help me follow through...

I have been robbed of my savior and my guide
And now I am left alone, in solitude I hide...

Once upon a time,
I thought we shared a dream
Now only echoes remain

I turned to you in my time of need
And where were you
Was it all in vain?

I still believe - a new dawn may arrive
Every step I take, brings me closer to what I strive

And now I stand alone... Forsaken but still with pride
Please give me a sign, I need you by my side

Once upon a time,
I thought we shared a dream
Now only echoes remain
I turned to you in my time of need
And where were you
Was it all in vain?

Diegu:
I hear your silent cries
Yes, I've failed to be all I can
I'll be there to guide you through,
I swear!
Now I see...

Diegu, Aveline:
I see there's more that meets the eye
More than just a fragile soul
I know now who to be
Now we are free

Aveline:
You'll be here... in my time of need

Diegu:
I'll be here... in your time of need

Diegu, Aveline:
Once upon a time we shared a dream
A dream that'll never die...
 
 
Forever Bound
(Act 2 Sc. 4)
Diegu:
I stand at the edge
A heightened state of consciousness
Yes, I've come to believe new found clarity in me

This fate - surely befits me
I'll be here - as long as I should be
No longer in doubt
I've squandered my time
To find out who am I

Forever bound to this life
Be it blessed, cursed for all time

I no longer try to find myself, in search for meaning
I found calm within the storm inside

Be it blessed, cursed for all time
I no longer try

I stand at the edge
Gaze upon the broken shreds of a whole that once was
Try to join two worlds apart

Forever bound to this life
Be it blessed, cursed for all time

I no longer try to find myself
In search for meaning
I found calm within the storm inside

Be it blessed, cursed for all time
I no longer try

Be it blessed, cursed for all time
 
 
The Message
(Act 2 Sc. 5)
Emperor Primos:
No matter what I do
This craving never seems to fade
Death made me envy him
The aching wore my patience thin
I thrive on my rage
The hours seemed days as I thought:
"Yes... Death is a Godsend, for power sooths my pain..."

Diegu:
You can't say you're healing
It's ought to feel nice... pretty good
To see all those beneath you
Blaming their God - instead of you

Primos you've been fooled
You're Death's recruit - merely a tool
He promised you a cure
To fix the void inside your soul...

Alas... this isn't so
Your mind has been tricked by the
Serpent's tongue
You've merely become what he'd seen in you:
A pawn of Death

Emperor Primos:
You think I'm so naive?
No - Death won't trick me!
But why do I feel strange?
I seem to hesitate

A voice inside my head
Why won't it leave me be?
I feel... I know...

Diegu:
Primos you've been fooled
You're Death's recruit - merely a tool
He promised you a cure
To fix the void inside your soul

A heart corrupted by evil

Emperor Primos:
I can't let go... It's like I'm not in control

Diegu:
Believe... you have the strength to break free...

Emperor Primos:
I'm ashamed of what I became throughout the years

Diegu:
Know this: there is no fate
But what we make for ourselves all can change
Qhen the mind is the heart be one in body and soul
Go back - to the moment you chose your dark ways
Go back and relive all those moments of fear
Relinquish yourself from the chains of the past
And you'll be freed from Death

Death:
Primos - don't you dare betray me
Diegu tells you nothing lies

Think of the man
I have let you become
I gave you life - through me you've survived
I gave you all - when nothing was left but dust

I was the one who offered you
A chance to see it all anew
I gave you might beyond compare
I will avenge myself - I swear

Diegu:
Oh, it has been a burden to carry

Emperor Primos:
I will learn... to med the future I shattered

Diegu:
What lies ahead... where do you wish to begin?

Emperor Primos:
Lead the way,
I wish to speak to Aveline
 
 
Balance Restored
(Act 2 Sc. 6)
Diegu:
I see two souls
One is sorry, both are hurt
But I see much more than meets the eye
I look far beyond; and see two as one...

Aveline, just look at him
He's a changed man, born anew
Can you find it in your heart to forgive?

Aveline:
Don't know what to think of this
So much has been said and done
Don't know what to make of this
It's bound to turn out wrong

Primos:
I can't blame you
Expecting you to trust, is just too much...

Aveline:
How can I believe you?
When I still don't understand...
The path you choose in life has led you bargaining with Death

Primos:
I can't blame you
Expecting you to trust, just might be...

Aveline:
Too much to ask, hard to admit

Primos:
I hope she is true to

Aveline, Primos:
These feelings we try to resist

Aveline:
Too much to hide, I can't keep inside

Primos:
I hope she can see

Aveline, Primos:
We're feeling the same

Aveline:
Somehow connected, somehow our fates seem

Primos:
Two hearts beat as one, we're

Aveline, Primos:
Entwined 'till the end of all time

Two souls revealing what has been foretold:
The balance's restored
 
 
God of Symmetry
(Act 2 Sc. 7)
Diegu:
Try to think of something, she must have overlooked
Apparently my life has turned out just the way it should
I wish that I could prove,
I'm in control of my life
But I just can't be sure of this:
Sophia you were right
I am glad, looking back
No, I don't hold a grudge
You proved to be a friend indeed:
Someone I could trust

Lady Sophia:
Diegu I've always known
Together we're so much more
Will you take your place with me?
Diegu I offer you
A purpose, your life renewed:
A place next to me, eternally - as God of Symmetry

Diegu:
I'd never thought she'd offer me
A place among the Gods:
"Protector of the Balance" - an inconceivable reward
To rise above all life,
Above all things I've ever known
I really to think this through
Before I make my choice

Lady Sophia:
Diegu I've always known
Together we're so much more
Will you take your place with me?
Diegu I offer you
A purpose, your life renewed:
A place next to me, eternally - as God of Symmetry

Diegu:
The more I try to picture it, the more it seems to drift away from me...
The more I try to picture it...

Lady Sophia:
Place yourself next to me...

Diegu:
"Protector of Balance", to rule right next to you
To live beside my Goddess - is this what I must do?

Lady Sophia:
Your choices led you here
The path has come to end
Whatever lies ahead
Is yours to decide
Diegu I've always known
Together we're so much more
Will you take your place with me?
Diegu I offer you
A purpose, your life renewed:
A place next to me, eternally - as God of Symmetry
Next to me...

Diegu:
I ask you Sophia... honour my choice
I wasn't made a God and do not choose to become one
I wish to roam among the living, it is who I am and choose to be

Lady Sophia:
Very well, Diegu... now - return my brave traveller, dear friend

Diegu:
I wasn't sure
Of where I stood, who I was
Those days are gone
And I am sure to tell the tale
For all time, for all time...
