THROUGH THE ISHTAR GATE... Compelled by the burning sun The fall soon followed the rise of Icarus Upon a timeless dusk, the phoenix is reborn
2.
THE FALL OF ICARUS Driven by a whim, we depleted earth's ressources Then the pillars crumbled to reset us all : year zero Monuments of yesterday are ruins of the past Like Icarus we gambled our future in vain The rise, the fall of Icarus Eager to reach the burning sun The rise, the fall of Icarus A blinding thirst for knowledge The rise, the fall of Icarus Eager to reach the burning sun The rise, the fall of Icarus This is path of no return From ashes and dust we'll rebuild a new empire As history always repeats itself We'll eventually fail once again Like Icarus we gambled our future in vain I can see the shadow of a far fading beacon After the fall, the phoenix is reborn I can hear the silence of an empty auditorium After the fall, the phoenix is reborn The rise, the fall of Icarus Eager to reach the burning sun The rise, the fall of Icarus A blinding thirst for knowledge The rise, the fall of Icarus Eager to reach the burning sun The rise, the fall of Icarus This is path of no return Eager to reach the burning sun This is the path of no return After the fall, the pheonix is reborn This is the rise and fall of Icarus

Frozen Shade 06:02
FROZEN SHADE I never saw this coming, like a storm or a curse It's something we're never really prepared for They have tried to help me but I can't get rid of this heavy weight This emptiness, it's filling me Then, they've asked many questions that does not matter anymore This won't bring you back I try to hang on to the memory of you and me They're all fading like a frozen shade Is this only a dream or the cruel reality I can barely see the frozen shade Is this only a dream or a sad broken hope Within the mist lies the frozen shade I never saw this coming, like a storm or a curse It's something we're never really prepared for I try to hang on to the memory of you and me They're all fading like a frozen shade Is this only a dream or the cruel reality I can barely see the frozen shade Is this only a dream or a sad broken hope Within the mist lies the frozen shade Is this just a dream or reality I can see through the mist the frozen shade Is this just a dream or reality I can see through the frozen shade I would travel the underworld The shadows of death to bring you back I would travel the shadowland To say farewell one last time

UNDER THE UMBRELLA Day one ; the one percent gain global control Within the shadows they pull the strings of major assets With phantom enemies they divided us To implement their ultimate masterplan Worldwide, widespread A manmade pandemic Worldwide, widespread Buy the antidote or die Worldwide, widespread A manmade pandemic Worldwide, widespread Choose between life or death Present day ; the virus spread to a global scale The one percent decides who lives and who dies They locked away the antidote - top secret Under the umbrella the masterplan is in place Au détriment de la vie humaine, les cadavres peuplent la terre interdite Dans la folie, la boîte de Pandore fut ouverte - un chemin sans retour Le fléau s'est répandu sur le monde Seuls les cendres et le sang sont laissés derrière Les morts règnent désormais sur l'ombre de ce qui était nommé autrefois "humanité" Worldwide, widespread A manmade pandemic Worldwide, widespread Buy the antidote or die Worldwide, widespread A manmade pandemic Worldwide, widespread Choose between life or death

THE ILLUSION OF FREEDOM We once called them our kings or emperors Be it the land they've sworn to protect or a divine birthright Their will was the only rightful law till we rebelled Against the king, the priest, the order for a new dawn After all, it's only an illusion They're ruling over our spilled blood Even when given the choice, we only try to avoid the worst Under the mask lies the untold truth, better left untold Their will was the only rightful law till we rebelled Against the king, the priest, the order for a new dawn We shall never bow down to deny our values We shall never surrender to these self-proclaimed leaders After all, it's only an illusion They're ruling over our spilled blood We shall never bow down to deny our values We shall never surrender to these self-proclaimed leaders After all, it's only an illusion They're ruling over our spilled blood But we won't forget, never We'll never forget, no
6.
DISTANT DREAMS There is this dream you still believe in It looks out of reach but you never gave up It seems almost your life's purpose It's as you were born for it Sometimes you think there are wrong choices That carried your hopes far away Haunted by regrets, you can't help to think Would you leave your life to try once again Would you do the same errors Would you sacrifice your life Would you regret your new choices Would you die for your hopes There is this dream you still believe in It seems almost your life's purpose Haunted by regrets, you can't help to think Would you leave your life to try once again Would you do the same errors Would you sacrifice your life Would you regret your new choices Would you die for your hopes

A GARDEN OF LIES You told me that you never lied to me But you've only told me a part of the truth Indeed, it may have many sides But there was only one real truth I already knew that it was a lie But I wanted to give you another chance If only once you could stop this game 'Cause in the end, you can't hide in the garden of lies You can think we'll never find out But in the end, the truth always comes out For you it could still make sense But there was only one real real truth I already knew that it was a lie But I wanted to give you another chance If only once you could stop this game 'Cause in the end, you can't hide in the garden of lies The garden of lies Your escape from reality The garden of lies The wall you've built so tall The garden of lies For isolation You can't hide in the garden of lies

Parasite 04:43
PARASITE Come and go like the will to survive Erotic thoughts are those you can't defy Nobody will ever know 'Cause all I want is for me to lay my… Parasite, parasite – Take this bite no matter what they say Parasite, parasite – I'll make you heal and wash your pain away Parasite, parasite – Lose yourself for now it's judgement day Parasite, parasite – Can't you feel the urge? Let's play Say my name with a devilish smile You won't shock me for being so vile Nobody will ever know 'Cause all I want is for me to lay my… Make me; take me; save me parasite. Parasite, Yeah come for me Parasite, devour me Parasite, take all you see Parasite take it all away (take it all) Take it all away to my funerals and make me fall further now I'll be back again, right behind the walls of the pleasures of the flesh

THE COSMOLOGICAL RIDDLE Let's talk, at first its all about the great cosmological riddle Where did the universe comes from? You told me it's god's creation Isn't it an excuse to avoid the question? Because in faith, there is no fear of the great void Because in faith, there is no fear of oblivion You have the right to practice Your own faith as you see fit Religion is not a license to discriminate, assimilate, deconsecrate, to live in hate Your personal beliefs are not supposed To limit the liberties of everyone Religion is not a license to discriminate, assimilate, deconsecrate, to live in hate You claim that without god there's no morality That humankind without your almighty Would fall into depravity Because in faith, there is no fear of the great void Because in faith, there is no fear of oblivion Then, you told me that hell awaits my soul Then, you told me that hell awaits my soul You have the right to practice Your own faith as you see fit Religion is not a license to discriminate, assimilate, deconsecrate, to live in hate Your personal beliefs are not supposed To limit the liberties of everyone Religion is not a license to discriminate, assimilate, deconsecrate, to live in hate Let's face it, it's all a lie You can't answer the great cosmological riddle

ELYSIAN FIELDS "as they live untouched by sorrow in the islands of the blessed far from the deathless gods" -Hesiod At first it sounded like a blessing, an extravagant gift Eras felt like hours, in a naive thirst for abundance I'm roaming the elysian fields as an immortal I am the witness of so many cycles Echoing throughout space and time Ashes, dust and faded hopes were cast away Giving birth to countless virgin stars And then it became a horrid curse, an eternal loop Eras felt like hours, I outlived my descendance And became alien to my own roots, erased by the tides of time I'm roaming the elysian fields as an immortal I am the witness of so many cycles Echoing throughout space and time Ashes, dust and faded hopes were cast away Giving birth to countless virgin stars At first it sounded like a blessing and then became a curse Eras felt like hours, and so many loved-ones passed away I'm roaming the elysian fields as an immortal I am the witness of so many cycles Echoing throughout space and time Ashes, dust and faded hopes were cast away Giving birth to countless virgin stars

A GRIM MYRIAD First we got, consciousness of death. Cognitive state, sudden apoplexy. Then we struggled, to avoid fatality. We scribed our own God, to weave our faith upon Great architechs of decease, self-imposed martyrdom Harvesters of sorrow, cadavers of tomorrow A contrasting shade, concealed hypocrisy, a grim myriad, an allegory Frail humanity, spawns dissaray and misery Stale vanity, a vast array of monstruosities Tears of fear, in a streaming ocean of agony Screaming in this automnal scenery Great architechs of decease, self-imposed martyrdom Harvesters of sorrow, cadavers of tomorrow A contrasting shade, concealed hypocrisy, a grim myriad, an allegory Uncovering lies, narrowing human's alibi Constrained to deny what's beyond the sky We strive for perfection, yet can't harness ourselves Cross breeding infections, a slight moral inflection A loop of infinite echo, the tempting voice of consciousness Such a grim myriad, to possess to impress Then we got, a glimpse of our own death. A precognitive state, sudden humility. Then we struggled, to avoid ignominy. We scribed our own God, to blame our crimes upon Great architechs of decease, self-imposed martyrdom Harvesters of sorrow, cadavers of tomorrow A contrasting shade, concealed hypocrisy, a grim myriad, an allegory Empty Glance, Anxious Stance Choral Misthrust, Immoral Lust Depraved illusions, a firmament Failure Brought thee pleasure in perfect Rapture Uncovering lies, narrowing human's alibi Constrained to deny what's beyond the sky We strive for perfection, yet can't harness ourselves Cross breeding infections, a slight moral inflection Glimpses from beyond the veil A reality alien to our beliefs Bleeding free we behold an unnamable chaos Unfiltered by the tendrils of emotion A grim myriad, to witness illusion A grim myriad, to possess to impress

The Wanderer 05:18
THE WANDERER I walked for hours to find a safe shelter All I've found is a derelict town, already cleaned out dry Survive Haunted by the shadows of the past I'm roaming this desolate wasteland Haunted by the shadows of the past Day after day under a rain of ashes Just before dusk, I've found a secret hideout Jackpot with canned good, clean water and new clothes After this planetary scale man made apocalypse Survival is my new live style on a daily basis Haunted by the shadows of the past I'm roaming this desolate wasteland Haunted by the shadows of the past Day after day under a rain of ashes After the nuclear fallout, we had to adapt Day after day, we must scavenge to survive Haunted by the shadows of the past I'm roaming this desolate wasteland Haunted by the shadows of the past Day after day under a rain of ashes

... TO ETEMENANKI Through the ashes and memories From fragments of the ancient Babylon I crossed the Ishtar gate To reach the highest tower To Etemenanki To reach the highest tower Through the Ishtar gate to Etemenanki
