Nexus Polaris Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Sulphur Feast (4:10)
Thirsting, waiting... I drank a sulphur feast.
Then, silently... In an instant.
Your flesh become me and I was forlorn.

My grave rose to the west...
For centuries long forgotten,
Relentless as the hungry gates of dawn.
And there, amidst the rubble...
Of stones and earthly flesh,
I laughed and served a sulphur feast.

And still it haunts me...

Drunk, with power...
I striked at the sun,
Engulfed, fiery instant
Gobbling, gobbling...
I devoured the stars,
My universe torn asunder.

Then, as dusk unraveled
The brittle of my bones,
A shredded mold of obelisks grotesque.
I strive beneath the essence...
Derived from mortal men,
Caught between two parallels of death.

Thirsting, waiting, I sailed a sulphur sea,
Of putrid furious flesh - a parody of feasting fools...
Where prophets and madmen walk hand in hand.

My grave rose to the west...
For centuries long forgotten,
Relentless as the hungry gates of dawn.
And there, amidst the rubble...
Of stones and earthly flesh,
I laughed and served a sulphur feast.

And still it haunts me...
2. Bizarre Cosmic Industries (5:51)
So I reach inside the raging galaxy
And grab some small glittering oddity
Such a creation - so crippled and deranged
A tiny figure in the bizarre cosmic industry
In different aspects of this circus maximus
Can you truly see behind my clown's mask?
So like a monster jack-in-the-box
Always in search for a greater gathering

Unleash the dust and unite the horrid flesh
Become the craven horns for others to see

So I reach inside the raging galaxy
And grab some small glittering oddity
Such a creation - so crippled and deranged
A tiny figure in the bizarre cosmic industry
In different aspects of this circus maximus
Can you truly see behind my clown's mask?
So like a monster jack-in-the-box
Always in search for a greater gathering

Welcome to the temple of fallen clowns
Where the many colours of darkness reside

"Lifeless I sail through these ironic fashions
Dressed in the flesh of the joker's passions
On the uttermost brink of madness I stroll
And the rise of insanity - as my most precious goal
Quilted in feathers, deranged and worn
I fly with the flock of my vanity torn
Tricking the trail of my long lost obscurity
I gather me inside the artifice of eternity..."
3. Planetarium (4:01)
Reach beyond the constellations
A movement towards the monumental
Universal secrets - the cosmic error
Sculptured by those dying generations

I drank the passions of those lost in the paradox...

As the stars touched my essence
The last of all creations wept
Paralyzed with wonder and confusion
Blurred by the serpents temptation

I drank the passions of those lost in the paradox...

Entangled in a swirling black aura of united burning chaos
Anthems to the forgotten masters - a gathering equilibrium

"Reach beyond the constellations
A movement towards the monumental
Universal secrets - the cosmic error
Sculptured by those dying generations"

I wondered....As we beheld the world about us
I knew....As I beheld the cosmos about me

Compelled towards the spiritual black dimensions aura
As I reached for outer dimensions my spirit became complete
4. The Last of Dragons (6:28)
The shattering of old illusions - created new surges of chaos
No longer driven by ancient hungers - I grabbed the poisoned chalice
Clawing at the churning night - thus rose my cosmic ambitions
Riding the snake in divine rebellion - wandering the nebular centuries

The precious ones
Brought the planetary elements apart
Leading the universe
Towards new and possessive aeons

These thoughts and emotions equaled the night
Revealed in the starborn cataclysmic attributes
Like monuments of unageing intellect
Seeking the sight - in shining dreamlike presence

The shattering of old illusions - created new surges of chaos
No longer driven by ancient hungers - I grabbed the poisoned chalice

"the paradox of the paragons are many,
Side by side....Entangled in the complete"

Dancing on the surface of devilish laments
I tore apart the world's fabric of rational beliefs
Drawn inside a mirage in which I will drown
How simple I alone - could end all those dreams

Majesty - the last of dragons carried my faith....

Dancing on the surface of devilish laments
I tore apart the world's fabric of rational beliefs
Drawn inside a mirage in which I might drown
How simple I alone - could end all those dreams
5. Bringer of the Sixth Sun (6:32)
I drank a goblet of fire
I cut out the prophets tongue
But still, the sun refused to move.

I tore a hole in the web of sanity...
The very fabric of life itself...
But still, this flesh refused to burn.

"What a humble vision!
To forever dwell by the grace of the sun..."

I gathered the moon and the stars...
In my little pouch of planets...
The renaissance of astral flesh.

Dripping and drooling with universal thirst...
Equilibrium going under...
In such an idle state of death.

Sowing the seeds of a new dimension...

I am the conqueror in his petty paradise...
Spinning around in garden of lush blooming death,
Point at the sun, and I will be there...
And the angels, scattered and bleeding...
Will be the fundament of my empire...

And amidst all this forlorn beauty...
...I still laughed at the end.
6. Dragonheart (4:52)
We demand a change of seasons
Aurora painted black
Elemental subtraction
The presence lost its time

For those yet to witness
For those yet to see
Breathe and bathe in anticipation
Of life's hypocrisy

Distorted by the essence - completed by lies
Deceived by the crystal void - configurate in passion
So bold in its disguise - this be the fate of mankind

A greater cosmic vision - let the fires roar!
The astral bewitchment is at hand
The planetary black elements
Reveals its dragonheart...

We demand a change of existence
And who are you to defy?
Ironic is the world's dismay...
We command and you obey!

Distorted by the essence - completed by lies
Deceived by the crystal void - configurate in passion
So bold in its disguise - this be the fate of mankind

A greater cosmic vision - let the fires roar!
The astral bewitchment is at hand
The planetary black elements
Reveals its dragonheart...
7. Planetary Black Elements (5:50)
Nexus Polaris....A truth concealed
A gaunt expression of the end
Prophecies revealed....Dimensional chaos
In perfect symmetry - a mask so dreary
A truth so stained - a planetary conformation
A long lost creation - a black door dimension
In shallow mystery

What is this universe, but a will to exist?
Forever....In all dimensions - Polaris opens its eyes
The nexus of time and space

Nexus Polaris....A path revealed - a joyous feast of fools
Stupidity renewed....Dimensional chaos...In perfect harmony

Possessive illusions - like a taste of defeat
Regress or regenerate - and your downfall is complete
Illusive possessions - an imaginary void
Hurled towards chaos - to destruct or destroy

"We reach for outerdimensional paranoia
Concealed parallels and hidden truths....
And then, as we gallantly plunge the borders
of our own existence...
Elements dissolve and microcosmos collide.
These are the planetary black elements
in which the force lies to a greater cosmic glory...
When the doors of perception are cleansed...
The Nexus Polaris will rise..."

Possessive illusions - like the taste of defeat
Regress or regenerate - and your downfall is complete
8. Chariots of Thunder (5:48)
Like crusades across the infinite
Night swallowed light
Cursed were the minions rebellion
An image of the serpent's creation
Reveal and enter the passage
Enter into the phantom's fire
Constellation - a unity in chaos
The chariots of thunder's arrival

Sent fragments of my reflection to the void afire
Behold the new breed created in my own image
Brighter these eyes burned with wicked anticipation
As the struggle for the black elements came to an end

....A precious mingling of the flesh and alien fire....

Held dreaming hands beneath the power to universal creation
And became the utter perfection of total completion
Breathe the untouched majesty of dark emotions
And feel the power...The beauty of domination

....Conquering the weaver's utopia....

To see them in such swarms
I wondered if this could be paradise
A seed for the future
The fire of fate and faith set alight

...Behold the faithless and his angel....
