Sanctus Ignis Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Second Sight (6:07)
[Lyrics: Bedos - Music: Forte - 6'07]

I foresee ages of chaos,
But my ordeal has yet just started
For these ominous signs,
Are bound to plague me
Haunt for centuries to come,
My healing incantations
Are destined for failure
My unremitting warnings and threats
Will go unheeded, such is my curse.
Why should it be incumbent upon me
To redeem their faults?
You, The one who spurns the past
Are now, But worthy to be last.
Thy choices are errors;
I shall thus abandon thou
To thy gloomy fate.
I can see the future
In the light of the past.
I cannot stop this ineluctable doom
From raining over the world.
Alas, this obnoxious portend
Will turn out to be abiding truth.
From time immemorial,
Man has taken refuge in oblivion.
They've exchanged there future
For the present enjoyment.
Nothing will change, History has set
Her implacable march into motion.
There will be no escape.
You, The one who spurns the past
Are now, But worthy to be last.
Thy choices are errors;
I shall thus abandon thou
To thy gloomy fate.
2. The Inner Road (5:45)
[Lyrics: Forte / Readman - Music: Forte - 5'45]

Red clouds always surrender to the nightfall.
But still there is a million ants,
Swarning on the ground.
Spirits will come in a blurred shape
I just have to wait, it's a matter of time.
Walking through the fields of light,
I can free myself from my soul
Fly away my pain on the wind.
The divine breath of night
Entices me into the maze of my soul
For truth an inner struggle
Of which I'm the keeper.
Bear witness to my strength
Waking in me, leaving my weakness behind
For truth an inner struggle
Of which I'm the keeper
As a new life runs into my veins
I just leave the past behind
And on the wings of hope I try to be
Walking through the fields of light,
I can free myself from my soul
Fly away my pain on the wind.
3. In Nomine ... (5:04)
[Lyrics: Readman - Music: Forte - 5'04]

Your grace was the key to cast our sins.
In a world of sorrow and despair
So that one day we'll jin him
Rise eternal filled prayer
Ave Maria
The voice, of thou Forever
In our hearts
We rejoice your sacred words.
Betrayed by the victims of desire
On an endless journeyto paradise
If you obey this evil,
Your reward will be sacrifice.
Ave Maria
The voice, of thou Forever
In our hearts
We will pray for all of our sins
Ave Maria
The voice, of thou Forever
In our hearts
We rejoice your sacred words.
Ave Maria
The voice, of thou Forever
In our hearts
We will pray for all of our sins
4. The Stringless Violin (7:00)
[Lyrics: Readman - Music: Forte - 7'00]

Now the time has come to face, my untold fears
Every waking hour, drained me through the years
So that I'm not one with myself my strength, my gift
Is destined to be forgotten
I have seen the world begin,
In the mirror of the past
I pray the life giving force
Still holds the strength, to last
As I lay dying
I understand,
The reason for my life
My fear slips away, the new world begins.
In a darkened corner
The horror that waits for me prey's on my only success
Save my innocence
Keep the darkness from my door
I have seen the world begin,
In the mirror of the past
I pray the life giving force
Still holds the strength, to last
As I lay dying
I understand,
The reason for my life
My fear slips away, the new world begins.
5. Seven Lands Of Sin (11:40)
[Lyrics: Forte - Music: Forte - 11'40]

Golden Tears
Fall from my eyes,
The blast of sand on my face
Marks the beginning of my punishment.
But now it is too late to regret.
Wandering the labyrinth of tears
Scaling the pyramids of despair,
The gods have now decided my fate
I have to go through the seven lands of sin.
The breath of air
Gets heavier and heavier.
My body and soul
Are torn apart in turn.
Beholding the infernal ballet
Of the roaring elements
I'm left facing my fate
Like a helpless slave.
Wandering the labyrinth of tears
Scaling the pyramids of despair,
The gods have now decided my fate
I have to go through the seven lands of sin.
Encounter with the Wind God
I yearn for conquest and blood
Once again I become a warrior
I shall not put up
With this sanction without rising up
Only blood will tell, pure or tainted,
Whose decision, will go unheeded.
The chaotic power of steel
Has just marked its boundary.
I fall, overwhelmed with pain,
Evil shall never prevail again.
Eternal Downfall
My agony shall linger
I beg for no mercy;
The six remaining lands of sin
That's where I'll wander
Bound with rage and dignity.
6. Order Of Enlil (4:19)
7. Sanctus Ignis (4:07)
[Lyrics: Readman - Music: Forte - 4'07]

Looking for sanctuary is not what it seems
A journey for all, in there distant dreams.
The voice of a wise man
Singing in there hearts.
Your pride is your mentor,
Honor is where it all starts.
Now the wind has changed
And the fear in your eyes
Plages your soul, to make your fire
Burn with rage forever after
Your caught in the web of desire
The will of man
And his quest for perfection.
Exept the truth,
In the silence of the moment
What you don't know now
You will witness someday
And what you don't feel know
Will be, your liberator.
Reach out and take, what is yours
Now and forever, and evermore
8. Panem Et Circences (5:21)
[Lyrics: Bedos - Music: Forte - 5'21]

All we ve done is provide them
With food and mindless entertainment;
They easily renounced their liberty.
Hence deprived of will of their own,
Lobotomised, forced into docility,
They were turned
Into obsequious slaves.
We ve taciltly accepted
This preposterous situation
In the name of that
Accursed social cohesion
Now they will tolerate no subvertion
Retaliation is out, of the question.
They ve insidiously concealed the truth
Ostensibly in the cause of Equality:
We ve been coaxed into lethal apathy,
Desperately clinging to an abject safety.
Loathing our predicament
In this inimical world,
Stultfied, we are unable to regain
Our blighted hopes.
We ve taciltly accepted
This preposterous situation
In the name of that
Accursed social cohesion
Now they will tolerate no subvertion
Retaliation is out, of the question.
9. Immigrant Song (4:55)
