Track Name: #3
Verse 1&2

The sea of green
Creates the veil of lies
People fooled
And blinded are their eyes
They take away
And don't give back
The world I see
Is full of rats

Chorus

It's all a game
And those who make the rules
Are not the leaders
But those who have the most
Threats Coming in
To destroy a way of life
They'll turn a blind eye
To the parasites
Track Name: The Journey
Verse 1

I sore on the wings of angels
Eternally intrigued with flight
Forever spiraled, barely keeping control

Chorus

Bring me to the edge of my will
Free me from obscurity
Blur the lines in the sand
I shall reach the end of the journey

Chorus

Bring me to the edge of my will
Free me from obscurity
Blur the lines in the sand
I shall reach the end of the journey

Verse 2

I felt the wind on my face
The ocean broke the horizon
Only to be just out of reach
Found myself lost in the desert
In solitude I awaited an answer
To my self diagnosed, self-medicated disaster

Chorus

Bring me to the edge of my will
Free me from obscurity
Blur the lines in the sand
Tell me there's an end to the journey

Verse 3

Bring me to the edge of the water
And welcome with open arms
See me, will you hear me?
Burdens I've overcome
Broken free, nothing will stop me
See me, you will hear me!
Track Name: Golden Light
Verse 1

As the sun rises in the east
The snow recedes and spring comes racing
One season to another
Life is moving on
The storm will fade into memory
The thunder and lightning will cease
And then you'll see high up in the sky
The golden light of a new days sun

Verse 2

But as the trees wrestle in the wind
They whisper that tale
That life is what you make of it
Not just what you take from it
From dawn to dusk
From sun to soul
From nothingness to eternity
The moon flower blooms in the night fire’s embrace
Track Name: Blue Ave Pt. 2 (Illusions)
Spoken word intro

Stuck in a dream of terror
Stranded in a mirage
How long will this last
As I’m Haunted by ghosts of my past?
Stuck in a dream of terror
Trying to escape this nightmare
Much to my own delusion
I’m forever trapped with no solution

Stuck in a dream of terror
Stranded in a mirage
How long will this last?
How long will this last?
(Everything above here is spoken)

Verse 1

Stuck in a dream of terror
Stranded in a mirage
How long will this last
As I’m Haunted by ghosts of my past?
Stuck in a dream of terror
Trying to escape this nightmare
Much to my own delusion
I’m forever trapped with no solution

Chorus

Beasts from within
Torture my soul
Stealing my sanity
Little by little

Verse 2

Darkness grows around
Engulfing me in a sea of black
Look into the mirror, what do I see?
Reflections of the past staring back at me
I am bound in a prison
One of images and perceptions
Of my own making
As the demons eat me alive

Chorus

Beasts from within
Torture my soul
Stealing my sanity
Little by little

Verse 3

I will never break down
My will of iron will never cease
I will not succumb to these inner demons
I will survive and look beyond
Mirages fade away nightmares end
Just like all struggles in the end
I will triumph
Over this illusion

Verse 4

There's a wind that blows
Of an ominous type
Foretells of a tale once told
I sit and I stare
At a pitch black wall
Watching the scene unfold
Now that I see
It's clear to me
That this avenue never ends
With this in mind
I’m no longer blind
I feel like I’m born again!
Track Name: Olympus
Verse 1

Fire, steel, wheel of war. Stain the mountain with your sadism
Shattered light through a broken prism, peace is a fleeting dream
Fat they grow, while death rules this opposing continuum
Steal the nectar from the flowers, and sit in the hall of the Gods

Verse 2

Rain nor snow will ever stain these slopes, no mortal shall survive this path
Reflections of a world that has come to pass, their blood will cleanse this world
Selling their souls to be here, reason is no longer a concept
Thousands of men under watchful eyes, charging into the night
...(Instrumental section)
Fight for your life on this final day
A dark hand will drag you towards Olympus
Death under the moonlit sky
Where you stand is where you'll die

Verse 3

The battle ensues, blades clash, it's every man for himself
To kill is only one more step, towards the ultimate prize
One thousand men lie still and breathless, One thousand souls to the underworld
Forever walk in eternal fire, their destiny resides in the flames
Fight for your life on this final day
A dark hand will drag you towards Olympus
Death under the moonlit sky
Where you stand is where you'll die
