Beyond Enlightenment
Now oppression stalks the remnants of compassion,
brewing hatred to surface in wicked actions
Cloaked in peace and mercy, force their false
confessions
Sentenced am I dying, cleansed from all salvation

"Defy our accusations and a certain death you'll
meet
A fool denies the obvious, and fools we shall
defeat"
All sanity now vanquished, ever mould beyond
control
My guilt stands yet unproven though they still
demand my fall

Demand my fall

Blood runs beyond enlightenment at inquisition's
hands
Vicious burn the fires swiftly out of hand

Now my fate lies in their "hands of liberation"
forming law and justice into obscuration
leading lies ensuring my life ceased in fire,
In the name of peace, to cleance my dark desires

"You stand accused of herasy and all what that
implies
With darkened minds you summon those who're
fallen from the skies"
Envenomed bleed their poisoned hearts, the power
they've abused
A deadly game of envy in which my life I'll lose

Blood runs beyond enlightenment at inquisition's
hands
Vicious burn the fires swiftly out of hand

Shackled, fettered - choking as I drown
Fooled and tortured - confess comitted crimes
Shackled, fettered - choking as I drown
Fooled and tortured - confess comitted crimes

Sentenced by superstition - my innocense denied
Truth is strange than fiction - religious
genocide

Alone in blind desperation, I face my mournful
death
In flames I meet termination, but my memory will
be leftback to top
Vernal Awakening
Enthroned through this age of confusion an urge,
the weakness and flooy since aeons emerged,
Created life in fetters from cradle to grave
A future in darkness with mankind enslaved

Trail of life decayed - wasteland whall prevail
Hatred lies in store - chaos evermore

So runs the spiel from where lives are found and
lost:
"Learn from past failures - prevent to pay the
cost"

Sunlight fades as nightfall rises in shadows
formed in clay
What once dwelt shall dwell no more when darkness
sees the day
A bleakwinter of enmity and terror shall take
form
What man created will be ruined when hate
conjures the storm

When our time spells an end to our ruling of this
earth,
will a wasteland remain?
Will all life cease to be by the wicked ways of
man
- his enfeebled domain?

Nature left in flames - Suffering, now to maim
Cataclysm at hand - unveiled unto man

So runs the spiel from where lives are lost and
found:
"Progression in spirit eliminates all bounds"

Sunlight fades as nightfall rises in shadows
formed in clay
What once dwelt shall dwell no more when darkness
sees the day
A bleakwinter of enmity and terror shall take
form
What man created will be ruined when hate
conjures the storm

Hallow minds start to burn with the flaming
shades of fall
let disorder arise!
An avenge to be brought to the ones who graveled
earth
hides now cloaked in disguise

Blind deception, mass confusion - interbreeding
dark illusions
Tumbelling, falling, brings conclusions -
constant fatal life-corrosion

Autumn - beckons forth the
winter - rising gloom in hand
Raging with bleak coldness 'til
vernal light commands

Final chapter closed - world devoid of use
Failure brings despair - death reveals its lair

Sunlight fades as nightfall rises in shadows
formed in clay
What once dwelt shall dwell no more when darkness
sees the day
A bleakwinter of enmity and terror shall take
form
What man created will be ruined when hate
conjures the stormback to top
Void Of Tranquillity
In orbit they pass around you - the memories from
abandoned past
Images from within your mind bring unknown
feelings into your veins

Delve into thy twillight past, a voyage done
before
The borderland 'twixt life and death - existing
evermore
Emerging from material guise - an ever-living
soul
Thy spirit lives forever more, in spite of aim or
goal

The forces of your vital mind deteriates vagely
as you're about to pass away The darkness that
surrounds you fades...

You reach out to touch, to feel the eternal
forgivness for thy impure soul
Desperation fills your mind - approach the centre
Centre of infernal salvation and infernal death

Enter to the plain of life, to knowledge loomed
through time
An ever-living certainty where life is formed to
chime
Foolishness and wisdom walk gently hand hand in
hand
Embraced in darkest universe as contraries blend
as one

Fear fills your mind on this ongoing journey
journey to a thousand secrets untold
Credlous at first to this place of wonder
Wonder's so real - it could be an illusion

Through dark veils of destiny - Realm of shades
revealed
Through dark veils of destiny - Infinite life
concealed

Your soul now levitates slowly and below your
body fades
Your conciousness remains but thy skin will soon
rot away
Visions from an obscure rality appear as your
soul departs
This once so undisturbed and now frail and feeble
world

Brought forth, the abyss now appears -
foulmouthed temptations call me near
Dark visions laughing over me - if swollowed I
will cease to be
Tempted to this world beyond - eager to break the
bond
The sacred promise of an earthly stay - now
broken as you writhe in dismay

Come to where all life descends in brimful
harmony
Cautious, interlacing, they engrave what they
shall be
All bounds cannot be broken or confusion will
prevail
- lifeless dark eternity of chaos and despair

Indescribable light descends between spheres
Spheres that behold that nondescript fear
Thought of the sins that were done in the past
the past is forgotten and the present will last

Through dark veils of destiny - Realm of shades
revealed
Through dark veils of destiny - Infinite life
concealed

Floating through these halls of light, emotions
burst within
Pure beauty of divinity enrobes remaining sin
Alone, enthralled, I bow this force, paternal
majesty
Freed from anguish, freed from hate - into my
destiny

Into the void of tranquillity

Through the rise and fall of worlds, one greater
mind prevails
Conjuring new creations as it watches the old
ones fail
Eternal coil of time and place - reality and tale
The answers to all questions hide within this
astral vale

Passed through tranquillity - aeons now flow away
Claimants of destiny - death can no more hold
sway

Forced to return - departure of soul
Material world - arrival as toldback to top
Unfurled By Dawn
Time and space unite
era of darkness - we mourn
Times of sorrow despite
our preach is put to scorn...

In ways like these I shall be reborn
to my words I conform
To seek the path of knowledge through time
In a life in a lack of rhyme (or reason)

Subconcious powers flow
- we burn the ways forlorn
Am I in time with forces I am born
Are those disguised
Excuse is being dumb
In spirit fails...

Self realization in supreme conciousness
Explore the self - within a millenia of peace

Reach into the soil of humankind
Bury secrets beneath this hallowed ground

Feel the wind of time now changing
Hear the voice that whispers near

Explore the inner strength within you now
seek deep in your soul - it'll show you how

Join us - in this quest to satisfy
Join us - and none shall mortify
I've seen the light unfurled by dawn
I've seen the blackest ways we scorn
We shan't conform - we shall remain...

"I've seen the void that echo fear"

Fly into this void of inner consioucness
we seek eternally

Greet enlightned ways...
I spead out wings of knowledge
is essential in mournful times like these
Words I repent

Voice from inner self shall lead my way

Former ways of life I repent
to inner consciosness I've ascent
Mortal way of living is the key
Key to the secret it beholds

Come to seek the path with me
in unfathomable harmony
the way life is meant to be
enjoy and just adore life...

Burning desire in thee
letting your soul fly free
No sould shall be the same
burn with a different flame
Sowing the seeds of man
proving the things your can
Seeing the things that'll be
the priors in life I can see

Each of mankind is a star
that will keep on shining eternally

Unveil the hidden unknown things in mind
enchanted over things that you will find

Join us - in this quest to satisfy
Join us - and none shall mortify
I've seen the light unfurled by dawn
I've seen the blackest ways we scorn
We shan't conform - we shall remain...

In affection we loom - a reflection of time
Walless prison, consumed - ignore irrelevance (a
rule)

Search the inner self - find the self within
Finding things I've seen in dreams (seeing
evermore)
things that' s left unsaid
Surrending to this inner force, feeling no
remorse
nothing to forbid

In the empty eyes of the last of mortals
those songs they echo as in halls of the
enlightened
Before this dawn of eternal light we stand
once more now as darkness belongs to the
forgotten

...to the forgotten

Internal sadness cured through the light
to reach the sadest river in sight
Whispers of molten souls in my ear
on wings of twillight I am born....

Now enthrone thoughts of the past
the embryo of time
Your life lies yet unfolded
'til enlightened ways we see

In my dreams I've seen repention
as in tales that were never told

Join us - in this quest to satisfy
Join us - and none shall mortify
I've seen the light unfurled by dawn
I've seen the blackest ways we scorn
We shan't conform - we shall remain...back to top
Yesterworld
Over the moor of mist and through valleys of fate
I fly on my voyage through this moonlit landscape
of re-emerged figments of imagination
I am aroused in sleep....aroused in sleep

Far beyond the gate which reflects in the closed
eye
reveal that a dreamscape lies therein
A yearning for a world
where the everlost find their peace
In the pearly gates of dawn
on the astral feed of minds
- envenomed to the bone
forever cleansed from all called wrath
as slumber sneaks upon
and steals the thought of man
all ridden from inner aggression...
A voyage beyond this world
In this paralell to real life
- access lies in dreams
Unveil hidden secrets in our sleep
- the key to what's beyond

In the wake of man we see
essential dreams unfulfilled
Enhance the value of life
engraved words on the page of man

In the presence of the moon
an owl awakes and calls a name
tells a story of a world
accessable only at night...

"This ain't no dream..."

Legend tells of a yesterworld
a dreamscape of strange light
"It's your dream coming true"
Transcendance of the soul
All by the sign of the moon

I am eaten away in mouthfuls by flames
that burn in the errors of our ways
In a night when the sky floats blue
as touquoise, and the stars of silver are
twinkling
in their outmost pride

Now from dimensions fallen from the skies
- like the flow of a stream
From my sleep I continue onward
- sleep is just a shape of destiny

Weak sunlight of dawns to come,
dancing swiftly in the shadows
Shimmering, shining in a landscape of dreams

...landscape of my dreams
Dim reflections of the pale
a shade of grey in mind

In the presence of the moon
an owl awakes and calls a name
tells a story of a world
accessable only at night...

"It's your reality..."

Legend tells of a yesterworld
a dreamscape of strange light
"It's much more than a dream"
Transcendance of the soul
All by the sign of the moon

Soon these worlds will be one
and mankind feasts on the sights of it all
I yearn for things to come

Still wrapped in the thrall of slumber
as the mist slippes away to reveal...
And the wind tears a scream from my lips
- I am there....

In the dreamscape I adore
(a moonclad reflection)back to top
