Intro
(zene: Attila & Erik)

Samhain
(zene: Attila, szöveg: Erik)

Mellow wind, running brook
Fertile soil on this sparkling land
Fairy island in our shining nature
Where gods live above the ground
In true peace, in happiness
Where is no pain, no mourning

Celebration of Beginning
The sky grew dark and wind rose
The sea roared and the ground broke
Enemy folk came from the seaside
They brought death, came to conquer,
To hunt out Tuatha Dé Danann
Two opposite folk, which will owe this land?
Life or death, Weirds may decide…

Prepare for the battle for you must fight!
Win or die in this fateful war!
Mil’s sons achieved glorious victory,
And Danu fled under the ground.

But the turn of the tide will come one day,
The revenge of the gods is still alive,
The earth will break and sidhs will open,
Demolishing powers will no longer hide!

They return, who lived here before,
In rememberance of humans’ devastation,
Divine and earthly, two opposite realms,
The suffered misery shouts for expiation!

Storm-clouds gather, the earth opens – Samhain
Two opposing realms will meet – Samhain
Powers of slaughter awaken – Samhain
Show yourself and your empire – Samhain

In Days Of Yore
(zene: Attila & Erik)

The Battle of Mag Tured
(zene: Attila, szöveg: Erik)

The Sun touches the earth
It’s light is hardly shining now
Everything fled from this Earth
Fled from this unhallowed land

Thus speaks the prophecy: listen oh great Balor
Your own blood will dethrone you
You’re mighty but you’re not the only one
Your reign turned against the sidhs

There’s no light on the fields any more
Clouds of Death infest the sky
Every mortal life is shivering
Fear possesses our souls

Ha ha ha! Poor old man!
No one can defeat me, because I am the mightiest!
Listen oh great Balor: your own grandson
will conquer you and this will be your destiny!

…the awaited child has born
He was thrown into the sea, but he has
grown up under Fairies guarding wings
Where he became master of all sciences
He’s destined to defeat the great one – eyed
Who has been oppressing us so long ago

The fighting started, the last battle
Between the sidhs and the children of Chaos
The last war, destined to decide
Who has the glory in this wonderful land

The Fomoirian King opened his eye
With his withering look he helped his army
Sidhs perished, humans died

But the old king could bear it no longer
Having lost his eye he lost the battle
So could be the fairy sidhs glorious
Having got the power to reign

This was the fate, the merciless destiny
The Druid’s prophecy became truth!!!
The Druid’s prophecy finally became truth!!!

The Last Judgement
(zene & szöveg: Attila)

The sky went into darkness, the last sunbeam has left us,
The breeze of fear embraces our souls, whispering softly,
But it keeps hold of us, strongly…

It has brought to us Dis Pater’s mirror, and we are astonished
To see how narrow is our humanness.

Life’s last minutes, death’s laughing frightens our hearts.
The gate to the Unknown is open, man must court death.
Storm-clouds gather, the earth is struck by lightnings,
Noone can flee before Taranis’ anger, there’s no glory
In the presence of Him, He knows no mercy.

But man led by ignorance- has rosen up against Him.
It’s late know, spoken word, ended act can’t be cancelled.
Lightnings are sparkling, death’s laughing, even louder,
It’s voice comes closer to us, even closer…

Man draws his sword, but he has no power any more,
In the realm of his fears.
It’s storming, more merciless than ever, and when all human
Hope is lost, thus speaks Taranis to us:
„Man, you fool! You wanted to prevail over your own being,
But you’ll lose now even what you are!”

The earth opens, and from the deep of the Underworld
Words are grumbling:
„Man, I created you from the Chaos, Dis Pater, I gave you
The biggest treasure, but instead of glorious words
You welcome me with swords!

I gave you hope, dreams, you would not exist without me!
You feared of what is just a new beginning and now
You rise against me! SEE YOUR DESTINY!”

Visions Of Eternity
(zene & szöveg: Attila)

Snow-covered mountains, vast forests, running brooks,
My fantasys creation to keep my fortitude alive,
Illusions, you give sense to this tiny life,
I’m walking on endless fields, I take a rest under an old tree,
I can hear little birds’ singing and flowers embrace my body.

Night is falling, the land is shrouded in mist,
The moon looks at me with his tempting smile.
He is my lantern in this gloomy night,
My guide, until the sun rises… in me.

Run wanderer, run to the realm of your dreams,
Listen to your heart and run, run with the winds,
Fly with the graceful eagles, follow the birds’ singing,
‘Cause they are speaking to you, wanderer… only to you…

They will take you where you’ve never been before,
But somehow you know this land… your imagined world,
One drop in the ocean of eternity…

I’m walking among the clouds, the sun burns in my eyes,
With spread arms I’m flying in the sky, I’m free…

My body is just a thought in the shreds of the past,
I left everything behind as I entered the gate,
My earthly being is just a memory, just a vision,
Now I’m a little flower on the fields of my desires,
With fairy-leaves and rainbow-petals,
I’ll stay here ’till the end of the time, ’cause this is my home.

Storm

It started with silence, when I was alone, as never before…
Submerging horizons, bondage is gone, and I’m not on a run
Dreams of the past are now fading, noone is here, and nothing is near
I’m not desperate so I will do whatever it takes to follow the road

Found my peace in the voidness, nothing I have now, but nothing is lost
I am the veil of wholeness, under my wings you’ll be free at last
Cold is the air that I’m breathing, the world gives me warmth, with every beat of the heart
Filling my veins with grandness, we are for a lifetime, together alone

My powers I’ve hidden will rise
Fragments of my soul unite
A merciless storm you will ride
To cleanse my kingdom from
Sick revelations, unwelcomed beings
Crush them to ashes, praise, praise the lust for slaughter
Unleash the hellhounds, release your thunders
Every men shall know, that I, I am the ruler of my own land

Why all the efforts to use me as your slave
I can offer nothing, but torment and decay
Why all the trials to silence all my words
I will always speak the truth no matter if it hurts
I could be your mirror, a window to the world,
You don’t dare to face it, you wallow in the dirt
Tired of all these games, I will leave you on your own
Freedom awaits me, a kingdom emerging from the Sun

With all the pain, the tears you shed
You breed the soil, your child is fed
You see your way now, just one step ahead
You carry the essence, now rise, rise up from the dead!

Together we will make this kingdom shine
Now I can see your light, you’re so alive
Build a world of unearthly design
I will not let it fall, will stand my ground
Eternal is the life we live,
Time can not tear apart, ’cause we are bound
To this moment that we are,
Where I have you by my side, I feel so alive

Like drops in the sea drifted into waves
My words are forming the question of all
Whenever I’m lonely I ask you the same
Will I hear you answer it all

Will I feel, will I see
Will I ever have you here with me
Will you feel, will you see
Will you ever choose to be one with me

And here I am so alone
Will I ever reach your hand
Will you feel the warmth
Of my ever burning heart
Will I see your face
Will I hold you in my arms
Do you dream of me
That our souls become as one

Dominion

I see a land, forged by the hand
Of the king born from Heaven’s descent
Bringer of light, a man full of might
Whom no living dare to withstand

And so here I crave for one final wave
To cleanse this world from despair
His blood in my veins, is all that remains
The truth of his words I’ll declare

Chaos may deprave my home
And sorrow may blacken my heart
But I will bring justice and stand for the truth
So you don’t have to live in the dark

Each of these steps that you take
Will grant you the freedom of art
Of expressing yourself like you never did before
So the pain will not tear you apart

Behold, the law of the lord
Forget now, all you’ve been told
My kingdom is open to all
Hear me, and embrace my call
Your soul is made to be free
Your heart will guide you to me
Your mind will blaze you a trail
Stand up and cut through the veil

Come forth, now come forth my glory
You are the one, you’re the only
Join me and I will be truly
More than you crave for and you’ll see
It’s always me

I bring you wisdom, I come when you call
I will be there when the world tends to fall
I am the shadow of infinite time
I am the moment eternal, I can not die

I bring you flame when you’re shaking with cold
I will be there when your body grows old
I am the potion reviving your day
I am the one who will take you, carry away

Glory

So many lives I have spent to walk this world
Sacrificed myself with every single birth
So many times I have left my sacred home
I still love the Earth wherever I may roam

I will give you flame from the fountain of all light
It burns up my soul, I can not hide it’s might
I will give you power, the blaze of true delight
It boils up my veins, inflames me from inside

Nothing will remain, but the silence of my words
My old self is dying, there’s no way to reverse
I can’t bear the tension, I can no longer hold
My world is collapsing, a new will be born, explode!

Melting with fire, I am the stellar choir
Standards now higher, conformed to your desire
Wisdom is order, it’s crossing every border
Arranging the matter, unearthly seed I scatter
I am the sanctum, a cure to all affliction
I am your freedom, your heaven-born addiction
I am the holy revelaer of your glory
I want to see you shine before I fade away

The world is full of light as we reunite
I know you can feel me as you watch the sky at night
Hear the voice inside holding you so tight
One day you will breath the sunlight with me by your side

Still I’m waiting for you, like sunflowers at night do
Every gleam I turn to gives hope that I am near you
All I am is blazing, but it’s cold here, I’m freezing
All I do is craving for the one I am reflecting

Still I’m breathing, still I’m healing the wound that once did make us two
I’m tired really and I lost my faith a thousand times, I was without you
No more waiting, I won’t search for you ’cause it’s killing me and rips the love out too
I remember, I will always do, we are bound together, me and you…

Origin

Memories of the Earth I recall
Those old times we were chasing our fall
We were born from the inventor of all
To dream a world and create eternal

Visions we brought to this land
Raised a kingdom for us to expand
We were lively we dared to dream grand
We did not know it was all built on sand
We couldn’t know

Shine in ecstasy, you’re one with me
Feed me sensuality, until I embrace your heart for real
And fly you up so high, that you can see
It’s all that we want it to be, the world is our dream,
But will we ever see home

Could I ever make you feel there’s no reason to hide
Could you ever kiss the soil as a mother her child

Dive into the sea and let us be
Seeds of our reality, growing the world as one, as free
Reaching up so high, that we can see
We are what we wanted to be, we’re living the dream,
But will we ever feel home

We tried and tried until the daylight died
Then we entreated the night to give us one more sight of
The million colours the million lives that we
Spread through all the world with lucid wings unfurled
With stories never heard, we gave you it all
Until the day there was nothing to say anymore
We tried to find a soul alight but all we saw was night
‘Cause we were already blind
How could we know that it’s all just illusion
That we are all that is and nothing’s here to seize
Nothing gives me peace, embrace me now for real
