Circle Lyrics

1. Shades of Gray (5:27)
Mountain tops and red, red clouds
Aflame with flaring gold
Silhouetted in the eastern sky like a god
The trees now blue under the dusk...
The cooling flood of evening shade
The lights recede, the sounds subdue
Predators emerge from their caves

Grayness holds my mind at stake
And the lake's golden mirror's dim
The last rays fall into darker shade
The night coils around the day
Shadows turn the light into the shades of gray
The sun bades the world farewell

The queen of the night her attire aglow
Before her beauty I, too bow
These nights I should fear
These lights I should not follow
This road to nowhere leads
I wander around in circles

Grayness holds my mind at stake
And the lake's golden mirror's dim
The last rays fall into darker shade
The night coils around the day
Shadows turn the light into the shades of gray
The sun bades the world farewell

The lights recede
The sounds subdue
Predators emerge from their caves

Grayness holds my mind at stake
And the lake's golden mirror's dim
The last rays fall into darker shade
The night coils around the day
Shadows turn the light into the shades of gray
The sun bades the world farewell

It controls my mind
...And the lake's golden mirror's dim
The last rays fall into the darker shade
The night chokes the day
Shadows turn the light into the shades of gray
The sun bades the world farewell
2. Mission (4:33)
Up high in the north
At the end of my rocky road
I heard the call
My feet had betrayed me
I was carried forth
To a place of healing
Where I was made again
And they sang me my song
While they told me all the tales
Then they showed me my mission
And I heard it whisper my name

They took me to their side
And gave me back my life
Blew the sounds into my ears
And lit the light on my path
3. The Wanderer (4:43)
Behold this man on the road
The burden that he holds
He lost it all but still he carries on
The dead are left behind
On the road of pain and grief
Promises have been broken
Once again he's been deceived

Homeless man he is
A wanderer without a hope
why this heavy burden
what does he seek
Homeless man he is
Searching for his dreams
Why this heavy burden
Lost all his beliefs

The Spirit Roams

Behold today the face of this man
He smiles now as he knows
He's burden starts to slowly fade away
He laughs at himself
Now it's easy to let go, of futile and the needless
To let it lie, to let it go
4. Narrow Path (4:23)
A narrow path
Now overgrown
Covered by grass
Almost gone

It whispers an invitation to me
Unveils a new direction

Around me the forest sings
The sun gilds the road

Here's my place
This is my world
Here's my future
I make my fire here

The trail leads me to the sea
The stones feel so familiar
On this cliff I've been before
And heard the song of the waves

The path turns to a road
The river flows into the sea
Around me the forest sings
The sun gilds the road
5. Hopeless Days (5:08)
I never wanted
I never wanted to be born
Into this cruel world
Into this cruel world I was torn

Left behind with grief
Lacerated by life
Shackled into caves of grieves

From an union
From an union of force and fear
Arose my kin
Arose my kin enslaved

In hopelessness
In hopelessness and suspicion
The seed of eternal tomorrow

I was born a captive
A captive of the night
In between
Hopeless days

I was born on sleet
On sleet covered roads
I've been driven by howling winds

A beggar, a drifter
A refugee from my own life
And a companion
Companion of the ghostly lights

But still they came
They found the way to get to me
They beckoned me to follow

I was born a captive
A captive of the night
In between
Hopeless days

I was born on sleet
On sleet covered roads
I've been driven by howling winds
6. Nightbird's Song (5:00)
Whispering of the trees
And nightbird's wistful song
My heart is growing still
The silent warriors arise

From beneath the shadows blue
From behind the shrouded veil
The ghosts step in front of me
The silent ones creep through me

They run beneath the stars
They rush on the road of night
They glide on the glass of time
They ride on a pale and frozen lake

Arise, the silent warriors arise
Arise, from the black soil
Arise, from the nightbird's song and screams

From the solar winds of my soul
From the moonlit matter of my bones
From shivering of my flesh
From leaden weights of my memory

The ghost of time are born
Step forth the immortals
Emerge the envoys of the depths
Silently the warriors arise
7. Into the Abyss (5:36)
This long road
Paved with victories
These monuments
Named after heroes
On this spring-like night
When the trees are blooming
I languish upon this road
I perish on the icy path

Who are you
Why have you called me here
(And the wind steals the sound)
And this long road
Where are you leading me
(And the snow erases the tracks)

It leads the way
Tireless through the dusk
Forces me to carry on
Flowers wither… lights and stars go out
I blindly fall down
Into the abyss of sleep and death

Why I'm the one
The chose one… When I'm no one

I strain to, to hear the call
But the wind steals the sound
I strive to, to keep on trail
And the snow erases the tracks
8. Enchanted by the Moon (5:32)
Upon my birth
Came close to death
I wore the night
Dark skies tucked me in
Stranded in the mire of sorrows
The lightless caves in ravines

The power rushed over me
The serpent ran me through
A moment stole my time
A might surged over me

My passage enchanted by the moon
The light with shadows blended
My delusion imprisoned me
My enemy destroyed me
A sword cleaved my skull
An arrow pierced my heart
A sword cleaved my skull
And the wind took my soul

Somebody broke my bones
Somebody tore my flesh
Somebody broke my bones
Somebody crushed my chest

The power rushed over me
The serpent ran me through
A moment stole my time
A might surged over me
9. A New Day (6:00)
The Sun will rise again
When darkness can't get any darker
Shadows will retreat
When night has filled the cup of time

When pearls start to glow
When morning dewdrops glister
When the wind waves the blade of grass
The Sun will rise again

When eagles have descended by my side
When I no longer need to flee
When mountain has accepted me, I will stay
And rest for a while

This is the moment
I have always feared
Afraid of an ending night
Afraid of a closing road
This is how it feels to die
On a most beautiful day
When the clouds so white and light
Sail across the sky
