Submitted by level Eagles
1. Genesis (1:35)
Instrumental
2. Reclaim the Sun (4:40)
Your burning bright star, my old friend the sun
Through our windows your rays shall burn on us
Go tell the peolpe that the storm will rise
Death from above, no love on their side

Eyes won't agree to see
Skin won't agree to burn
Open the gates to hell
The blinding light of the sun
Won't stop us from merging as one
Reborn majestic being

Our eyes will not see the sun go down
I was the fire, a flame upon man
I could explode and cloud them like the rust
All life once known will be buried in dust

Blood won't agree to bleed
Sins won't agree to burn
Stnad at the gates of hell
The flaming death of the sun
Won't stop us from merging as one
Reborn majestic being

This life ain't mine
This old decaying body will shine
And we will fly, back into the sun
But still we bow for no one

I have lived thousand centuries
My death will be glorious

You burning bright star, my old friend the sun
Through our windows your rays shall burn on us
I could explode and cloud them like the rust
Death from above, you'll be buried in dus

This life ain't mine
This old decaying body will shine
And we will fly back into the sun
But still we bow for no one
3. Masquerade (5:05)
There's a man in a cell,
With a mask on his face
He was taken from the, from the final masquerade
No more enemies, only demons left to fear
This is the end, the final revolution

He stands facing the wall, forget the old war
All the memories, all the pain that we came for
And now the mask it fades,
Revealing for all to see
His closing memories,
Of a price that he pays for

Under the full moon, winter sky
I saw a soldier, walk on by
He sang an anthem, a song for free
As he went up, to eternity

In all his dreams, before this hopeless night
He saw a thousand, soldiers in twilight
The sang an anthem, a song for free
As they went up, to eternity

Open the skies
Open the gates
Don't leave me out
Open the gates

There's a man in a cell,
With a mask on his face
He was taken from the,
From the final masquerade
And now the mask it fades,
Revealing for all to see
This is the end, the final revolution

Under the full moon, winter sky
I saw a soldier, walk on by
He sand an anthem, a song for free
As he went up, to eternity

In all his dreams, before this hopeless night
He saw a thousand, soldiers in twilight
They sang an anthem, a song for free
As they went up, to eternity
4. Into the Dark (5:07)
May I introduce the glorious death
He waits for all until their final breath
He stands before you but you will never see
The faceless shadow that you are soon to be

A presence grips you with a nameless fear
You mourn the dead but they will soon be near
He stands before you but you will never know
Into the black of night you will go

When fourteen years has passed
The ghost of the damned will posses you
Our fate will bevome obsolete
When the blind are leading the blind

Before the morning he will take his prize
For every man is cursed until he dies
And all you knew or loved just fades away
You will never live another day

The time has come to leave the world behind
A deathly sleep from which you'll never rise
No god to save you as you turn and run
The only god is death and he has won

As your final days draw near
You feel his grip upon you
A battle you cannot win
As the sun dives into the eternal night

The mighty answer on the frozen sky
Lay forth your spirit, to behold on high
And see the pale moon shiver and depart
Behind the sea, the sun, the sun ascends

We may stand at the shore
Watching the last rays of the sun
So cold when the night falls
And one more time the sun says goodbye

The mighty answer on the frozen sky
Lay forth your spirit, to behold on high
And see the pale moon shiver and depart
Behind the sea, the sun, the sun ascends
5. The Drowning (4:31)
Let my ship go down
Let it sink to the very first grave
I'll let the world drown my every last breath

I understand, the meaning of losing
The choice of choosing
Between life and death

If I could drown in a shallow sea
Maybe then this life, was real to me
If I could only, make you believe
Maybe then you just could follow me

I am looking up on yoi
From the depths of the trench that I dug
The tides dissolve the skies above me

I understand, the meaning of losing
The choice of choosing
Between life and death

If I could drown in a shallow sea
Maybe then this life, was real to me
If I could only, make you believe
Maybe then you just could follow me

I feel the waves wash the blood from my veins
And tear my flesh from the rust of these chains
I hear the voices, they'll calling to me
step off the shore and step into the sea
I feel the ocean, it drags me below
And tears the unliving flesh from my bones
I try to hold my breath as long as I can
But then I let go and take a deep breath

If I could drown in a shallow sea
Maybe then this life, was real to me
If I could only, make you believe
Maybe then you just could follow me
6. Death Is the Beginning (6:28)
The day your life was stolen away
Was the day the sun burnt bright
And now you have gone to another place
To have another try in some other life

Everyday the memory haunts me
You lying there in the bed in tubes, all lifeless
There's no mor life in you
No more time was given to you
Fear not, we will meet again

No, I never wanted you to go
I never wanted you to show
What this life would be without you

I never wanted to know
I never wanted to see
That this horrible dream could be rea

From the day you were born, to the day you were gone
You were everything I could dream of
My beautiful green eyed child, you brighten my life with your smile
And now, they have taken you away
Everyday the memory haunts me
You lying there on the bed in tubes, all lifeless
There's no more life in you
No more time was given to you
Fear not, we will meet again

No, I never wanted you to go
I never wanted you to show
What this life would be without you

I never wanted to know
I never wanted to see
That this horrible dream could be real
7. The Ghost (6:19)
You know the secret of death?
Now you will find it, just seek the heart of life
For life and death are one, as the river and the sea
That met in the darkest of dreams

And now the time has come
To take your sacred vow
The dawn is over but eternal night, has just begun
You trade your mortal life
To live an endless day
But never more you'll feel the light, for in the shadow... you'll remain

Your fear of death, when you stand before the king
Trust the dreams, they hold the key to eternity
Behold death, open your heart for lies
For what is to die, when you wear the sign of the sky

And now the time has come
And at his feet you'll bow
Hand over every day you've ever lived, it's over now
You draw your final breath
And speak your final words
You'll live forever but your mortal soul...
Is cast to stone

Your time is over
Become the ghost that haunts their dreams
You'll live forever
But your new life's not what it seems
A new beginning
Forget the man you've left behind
Your life is over
But here a new path you will find

You know the secret of death?
Now you will find it, just seek the heart of life
For life and death are one, as the river and the sea
That met in the darkest of dreams

Your time is over
Become the ghost that haunts their dreams
You'll live forever
But your new life's not what it seems
A new beginning
Forget the man you've left behind
Your life is over
But here a new path you will find
8. In Torment (4:29)
Darkness has fallen, yet I see a tiny speck of light
From the start of time, till the end of time
For eons of nights

A voice is calling, from the deepest endless black of space
From a faceless God, till the end of time
Lays us to waste

Should I regret the things I've done
Or turn my back on everyone
Darkness is summoning within
But light will free me of this sin

Darkness has fallen, yet I see an ember from the sun
From the dawn of time, It has burned for us
But it's time has come

A voice has spoken, yet I cannot turn my back and run
From the endless shame, I cannot escape
What I have done

Should I regret the men I've slain
or is this life a senseless game
darkness is summoning within
But light will free me of this sin

Cast them all into the ashes of the sun
And leave the gods to judge me
Never, shall I repent what I have done
For there is light within me

My torment lives on and on
And suffocates my soul
To this life that I was grown
I won't grow old

Should I regret the things I've done
Or turn my back on everyone
Darkness is summoning within
But light will free me of this sin

Casst them all into the ashes of the sun
And leave the gods to judge me
Never, shall I repent what I have done
For there is light within me

My torment lives on and on
And suffocates my soul
To this life that I was grown
I won't grow old
9. Agnus Dei (2:00)
Instrumental
10. The Colours of the Cosmos (4:38)
If I could travel between the stars
And create another force
The speed will tear my soul apart
The journey takes me far away
Beyond the edge of time and space
Will I ever reach the end

The colours of cosmos
Are draped around me
It's time to wake uo
My destiny has found me
I see a billion stars
Their light will guide me
But have I gone too far?
It's all behind me

Oh mighty father
Release my flesh
And let me see
What lies behind those dreams
I am your son
All alone and weak
I will make you proud
You will see me bleed

I'd rather die tonight with pride
Than live another shameless day
I'd sacrifice it all for this
The journey takes me to my end
But in the darkness I ascend
And here I'll find my father's pride
Your words will break me
Forgot the past
Break down the unknown
Find out the mystery
Forget the reasons
The shadows haunt me
I'm slowly gliding
To dark horizon

The colours of cosmos
Are draped around me
It's time to wake up
My destiny has found me
I see a billion stars
Their light will guide me
But have I gone too far?
It's all behind me

Oh mighty father
Release my flesh
And let me see
What lies behind those dreams
I am your son
All alone and weak
I will make you proud
You will see me bleed
11. Apprentice of Death (5:13)
Cut down the trees
Burn them all to ash
Make the flames go high
So the smoke covers the sky

Suffocate the lungs
Breathe in the fumes
No hope to change the past
This is the road to doom

Collapse, all I see
The world shall fall around me
Nothing left but greed
Black wings of death surround me

I am destroyer
I will make the gods hear me
I feel immortal
Misery I behold
I am destroyer
I destroy everything I own
I am immortal
My stories will be told

Dig down the ground
Impale the earth
Make the whole world tremble
Beneath my feet

Drain the earth from life
Forget the world
No hope to turn back time
It is our time to die

Collapse, all I see
The world shall fall around me
Nothing, left but greed
Black wings of death surround me

As we reach the point of no return
We will all finally realize
It is our destiny, our destiny
Our destiny is to fade into extinction

I am destroyer
I will make the gods hear me
I feel immortal
Misery I behold
I am destroyer
I destroy everything I own
I am immortal
My stories will ne told
