Brace for the score You’ve taken refuge in the hearts of many Afraid to give in To the one with the key to your soul Beyond the shadows, beneath the soul Lies the tattered bond in which we were once intertwined A secret passage, beneath the masses Of ruins tainted by the vengeance of a severed tie But I can feel you Would you ever pray to me? I’ll take you to the reaches of your fate To decide the curse of a love to state There’s a heart that beats within us all And it’s failed you When there’s nothing left for her The heavens will fall to earth A veil of chilling cold, to shield the story told Is further to the truth than any other lies of old Without a path to seek, her hope is growing weak She’s never been this close to hiding under cloth and sheet But I can feel you Would you ever pray to me? I’ll take you to the reaches of your fate To decide the curse of a love to state There’s a heart that beats within us all And it’s failed you We set upon a crystal reign in fall To define what it means to leave the shores Of a once loved place we called our own And I failed you [Solo – Jerry Zahija] I’ll take you to the reaches of your fate To find the curse of a love to state I’ll take you to the reaches of your fate To decide the curse of a love to state There’s a heart that beats within us all And it’s failed you We set upon a crystal reign in fall To define what it means to leave the shores Of a once loved place we called our own And I failed you I’ll take you to the reaches of your fate To decide the curse of a love to state There’s a heart that beats within us all And it’s failed you We set upon a crystal reign in fall To define what it means to leave the shores Of a once loved place we called our own And I failed you

Carpe Noctem 04:31
Seasoned darkness silhouettes our boundary Dying light is all that’s left of you All that’s left is sorrow, as tragedy takes flight I’ll uphold his vision in the taking of the night Tonight As dusk relieves the day You’ll find you’re all that’s left in what appears eternal rest In time perceived A loss consoled in grief Graceful by the fall of one whose vision burns to see Free darkness, forsaken soul Fell to darkness, out of the light A storm in the wind of a cold winter’s night Deathly silence beckons the dawn In fleeting hours, the daylight will mourn Shadows weep For those who’ve lost their sleep Divine by right of way in guidance calling love to leave Free darkness, forsaken soul Fell to darkness, out of the light A storm in the wind of a cold winter’s night Deathly silence beckons the dawn In fleeting hours, the daylight will mourn Across the astral plane Lies nothing more to gain Carpe Noctem Fell to darkness, out of the light A storm in the wind of a cold winter’s night Deathly silence beckons the dawn In fleeting hours, the daylight will mourn Fell to darkness, out of the light A storm in the wind of a cold winter’s night Deathly silence beckons the dawn I see you falling

En Rapture 03:52
A wild whisper to the wind Minute hand on the hour A count of three From the church bell tower When silence bears its stride Absent day in the black of night A fear instilled inside Those who search for warmth in light Yet through it all We stand so tall A smile twisted in vain That set insight might see to strain A thick array of false reign To plague and tune the mind in shade The winter frost burns bright A blazing crimson fire To signify the end As the flames leap higher When shadows split the sky And all that’s left is a fleeting cry A fear instilled inside Those who know that the end is nigh Yet through it all We stand so tall A smile twisted in vain That set insight might see to strain A thick array of false reign To plague and tune the mind in shade Take all that you lead in sake of rite Take your chance and ride into the night Beyond the shadows, beneath the soul We are We are The fallen remains of a dying star We take We take The life longing for a beating heart A smile twisted in vain That set insight might see to strain A thick array of false reign To plague and tune the mind in shade Take all that you lead in sake of rite Take your chance and ride into the night

Relinquished 04:45
Have I lost the will to carry on? My voice devoid of sound To feel the touch of the great beyond Relieve the call I’m bound Enter to me Free your mind of thought Feel the weight lift From the shadows, onward I go Won’t you breathe life into these heavy hands? Won’t you take me into your arms again? As I will be Always waiting So the journey less travelled on Becomes the journey I must take To leave the ones I learnt to love behind Becomes my sacrifice to make Won’t you breathe life into these heavy hands? Won’t you take me into your arms again? As I will be Always waiting Enter to me Free your mind of thought Feel the weight lift From the shadows, onward I go [Solo – Jerry Zahija] Won’t you breathe life into these heavy hands? Won’t you take me into your arms again? As I will be Always waiting Won’t you breathe life into these heavy hands? Won’t you take me into your arms again? As I will be Always waiting

Perched upon the riverbed Tears upon her lash A song yet unheard Clings to her tongue, amidst salt and ash She reaches towards her shoulder Fleeting moments pass Though time wavers This feeling holds her within its grasp Taking its toll on her reason Leading the blind to see You cave under the centre of a limitless divide And you pray for the unspoken, as you wade amongst the tide Now carefree in your loneliness, without treason toward your doubt Distant in your memories, lost forever now Sadness is not her stranger Kindness, not her friend But time seems to know Which of these will prevail in the end How can this pain exist? She wonders to herself If only she had The strength she would need to fight and resist Taking its toll on her reason Leading the blind to see You cave under the centre of a limitless divide And you pray for the unspoken, as you wade amongst the tide Now carefree in your loneliness, without treason toward your doubt Distant in your memories, lost forever now Suffocate the fear that holds you And fight for this Breathe beneath the waters that wash over you and you’ll see Flight in your destiny’s hold [Solo #1 – Jerry Zahija] [Solo #2 – Mishka Bobrov] Taking its toll on her reason Leading the blind to see You cave under the centre of a limitless divide And you pray for the unspoken, as you wade amongst the tide Now carefree in your loneliness, without treason toward your doubt Distant in your memories, lost forever now Lost forever now Lost forever now

Celestia 04:02
I can take you away from here Do not fear, my dear I can show you the way of love Free from the hatred of those above Walk through shades of grey now, over the barren hill Where you’ll find a place to rest in a field of ivory Take not this for granted, tis the only path you seek For there’s nothing for you to want when I am all you need Nothing to cure I am your disease Cascade upon an autumn breeze Fear not the whisper of the rising shade Tis nothing but a ghost in the winter rain Walk through shades of grey now, over the barren hill Where you’ll find a place to rest in a field of ivory Take not this for granted, tis the only path you seek For there’s nothing for you to want when I am all you need Walk through shades of grey now, over the barren hill Where you’ll find a place to rest in a field of ivory Take not this for granted, tis the only path you seek For there’s nothing for you to want when I am all you need

Solaris 04:48
I never felt that time was on my side But a shadow on the wind Seduced by death in love’s disguise And a beggar’s guide to sin Where are the lights Holy and bright? Why does the joker show his tears? Tattered fragments from the sky embrace in a whirlwind Winter has come Black out the sun No need to feel so lost, my dear I’ll show you the way Through hope and dismay Let me lead you right where you belong A fallen star to wield a dynasty Like a candle burnt anew They say there’s strength in what you seek But I’m yet to see that proved Where have you gone? It’s been far too long Why did you leave me stranded here? A darkness lost is no small cost when you deal in light of fear Winter has come Black out the sun No need to feel so lost, my dear I’ll show you the way Through hope and dismay Let me lead you right where you belong [Solo – Jerry Zahija] Winter has come Black out the sun No need to feel so lost, my dear I’ll show you the way Through hope and dismay Let me lead you right where you belong Winter has come Black out the sun No need to feel so lost, my dear I’ll show you the way Through hope and dismay Let me lead you right where you belong Right where you belong Let me lead you right where you belong Winter has come Black out the sun No need to feel so lost, my dear I’ll show you the way Through hope and dismay Let me lead you right where you belong Winter has come Black out the sun No need to feel so lost, my dear I’ll show you the way Through hope and dismay Let me lead you right where you belong

Starfall 05:57
A kiss to grace the love we held so dear tonight We twist to turn in lust and burn with fire in our eyes Like daggers to the stone, you turn this heart to wine And in the night we lose ourselves to life We fell to the night In darkness we were lost to the storming winds of a fantasy An answer divine, fell from the stars in that howling roar We danced from dusk ‘til dawn, in the shadow of the stage An endless hope clung to your velvet smile Like daggers through the wine, you turn this heart to stone When I feel I need to be alone We fell to the night In darkness we were lost to the storming winds of a fantasy An answer divine Fell from the stars in that howling roar A call to divide The scar in which we long for a loving touch to heal in harmony’s fall Where we long for deaths embrace Take another step Take another I see through you It’s the only way to save me from that fall I’ve taken out the steps before me I’ve fallen, you can’t save me Despite the light of day We fell to the night In darkness we were lost to the storming winds of a fantasy An answer divine Fell from the stars in that howling roar A call to divide The scar in which we long for a loving touch to heal in harmony’s fall Where we long for deaths embrace Where we long for death’s embrace Where we long for death’s embrace

I’ve a world within myself Sanctioned and alone Mirrored from the inside Reflecting all I know But there’s secrets within secrets I can’t draw one from my own Laid upon lifeless Like speaking into stone I won’t spare another day Imprisoned in this life Fighting to survive I won’t be left to lead astray Those who choose to run Towards a better fate They say readers talk in pictures But I’ve painted far too long Calloused and abandoned Lost for words unknown Tailored to obsession A fault unto my own Too far into my absence With which I’ve welcomed home I won’t spare another day Imprisoned in this life Fighting to survive I won’t be left to lead astray Those who choose to run Towards a better fate Reach out, they say That all that’s in my way is myself and I I have lost my way When there’s no reason to stay I’ll leave this place I’ll rest this way [Solo – Jerry Zahija] I left my love in silence Like a whisper to the wind Free upon a breeze No longer afraid To soar before the sun The warmth upon my wings I won’t spare another day Imprisoned in this life Fighting to survive I won’t be left to lead astray Those who choose to run Towards a better fate I won’t spare another day Imprisoned in this life Fighting to survive I won’t be left to lead astray Those who choose to run Towards a better fate

Halo 06:14
Designed by what lies beyond the other side Hoping for a chance to cross the void into life gain Break the cycle that spins to entwine Divide and come to the circle of light Come to the circle of light We were lost to the wheel of time But I can feel you If we could only just rewind I could save you [Solo #1 – Jerry Zahija] Reclaim where you were before you fell away Defeat no longer applies when you’re lost in the fray Come to the circle of light We were lost to the wheel of time But I can feel you If we could only just rewind I could save you [Solo #2 – Lord Tim] We were lost to the wheel of time But I can feel you If we could only just rewind I could save you We were lost to the wheel of time But I can feel you If we could only just rewind I could save you

Eternity 11:38
Pray to breathe Behold what’s left to see Once a golden titan Now lost in reverie They call me the prince of the rapture With a heart of ice and stone If only they could fathom What lay behind my throne I’ve captured minds in wonder With a tongue of silvered wit Yet now I grow so weary Fraught in doubt and counterfeit Time slips away When you’re a slave to its charm It holds you when it needs to Yet lays waste when in charge Take me away Take me far from here And yet I long for Death’s embrace Her comfort Her grace No longer shall I bear the pain Release me from my eternal reign Reflecting on my past I count where I went wrong To trust in where I was before To fit where I belong Too far beyond redemption In chains of faith and glass I lost all that I had loved And yet I long for Death’s embrace Her comfort Her grace No longer shall I bear the pain Release me from my eternal reign Release me Release me Release me Now left to find my way Left to find my way Release me from my eternal reign Cold and calloused It leads me to rage on, cursed and estranged Bread into silence Tied to enslave all cast through these flames Over and over Chained to behave Tailored to nothing Forced to revisit the pain of my past It rages on Forced to recover A slave to this other It rages on How long I’ve lived in protest Like a moth unto the flame How long I’ve served in protest A blight unto his name Course and careless Exiled to rule over all that is vile Seething for being a titan of gold With pride to his name Forced to revisit the pain of my past It rages on Forced to recover A slave to this other It rages on For all the tears I shed My call to paradise Fell on deafened ears Denied a second chance Refused one final glance Of where I hung my wings Sentenced to live on In a shrine of molten stone Destined for defeat I fell from warring skies Into the dark of night Never seen again [Solo #1 – Lord Tim] Cast from up above Terrified and bare Bound to eternity With no end in sight Scathed beyond repair Can you set me free? They call me the prince of the rapture With a heart of ice and stone If only they could fathom What lay behind my throne I’ve captured minds in wonder With a tongue of silvered wit Yet now I grow so weary Fraught in doubt and counterfeit [Solo #2 – Mishka Bobrov] [Solo #3 – Mark Furtner] [Solo #4 – Mishka Bobrov] [Solo #5 – Mark Furtner] And yet I long for Death’s embrace Her comfort Her grace No longer shall I bear the pain Release me from my eternal reign Release me Release me Release me Now left to find my way Left to find my way Release me from my eternal reign For all the tears I shed My call to paradise Fell on deafened ears I fell from warring skies Into the dark of night Never seen again
