Quintessence Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Rivalry of Phantoms (4:36)
The tide of the substances
Furious force, a stunning course
A war unbroken
It's the coil of the combining ends
The dawn of the random fall

I summon the winter, the autumns son
The way of those, the way of mine
I summon the winds, the rage of storms
My way is for those, the sinner?s kind
Damnation groan, hear the call

The tide of the substance, spins in the core
Like a furious force kept stunning beyond
It's the coil of the combining ends
The dawn of the random fall

I summon the rivers the ocean?s son
The way of those the way of mine
I summon the motion, the presence of time
My way is for those, the sinners kind

Beware the sight of those
Those who were my sight
Beware the hate of those
Who rivals as the storms
Who storms as rivals
At the plains, in the havoc
The rivalry of phantoms

The erosion is my war, die you may
The wind i my passion. Utterly you weep
The rivers are my blood, drown you may
The wind is my passion, the passion to fight
2. The Presence Is Ominous (4:55)
Prior to the forces of primacy
Concealed by the essence, the profane
Withdraws in manners of erosion
Spine of the universal conflicts

Swept towards a new domain
Reversed in time, proceed in time
Swallowed by dimensions
Swallowed by the flames

I see fear so clear in the eyes
The eyes that burn by sight
I see fear so clear when you die

The cries that torches swept by
I am yet to see the good victorious
Thunder tamed by silence
I am yet to see the man victorious
Death tamed by life

Swept towards a new domain
Reversed in time, proceed in time
Swallowing dimensions
Swallowing the flames

I see fear so clear in the eyes
The eyes that burns by sight
I see fear so clear when you die

Spine of the universal comfilcts
As the motion of winds and oceans
I am on the isle of existence,
the mountains at my trail
I am prepared to die,
when the faith comes around to fail

Swept towards a new domain
Reversed in time, proceed in time
Swallowing dimensions
Swallowing the flames

I see fear so clear in the eyes
The eyes that burns by sight
I see fear so clear when you die
3. The Ruins of Future (4:55)
Upon the ruins of the future
I climbed to behold
A distance so pale
An existence so cold

Resembling the views
These angels of damnation
As my mind came and flew

Upon the ruins of future
I stood to be told
That the future will fail
Upon the hands that fold

At the edge of the horizon
I saw the harmony of havoc
The path of the marauders
Transient yet tremendous

Upon the failure, denial of token
Upon the speech, in my tongue spoken
The sign, the pulse that protrude
The resound, the return
The sequence that conclude, the fall of man

Upon the ruins of the future
I climbed to behold
A distance so pale
An existence so cold

Resembling the views
These angels of damnation
As my mind came and flew

Upon the ruins of the future
I settled to be bold
When the downfall arises, as I am told

The denomination of the grandiose demise
Granted as the imious impetus

Upon the failure, denial of token
Upon the speech, in my tongue spoken

Upon the ruins of the future
I settled to be bold
When the downfall arises, as I am told
4. Colossus (4:27)
From out of static time has grown
Existence formed by substance unknown
Prelude to matter, shift of disorder
Completion of bonds between chaos and order

The era of seasons, the essence of being
The continuous process awakens the living
Absorber of every flickering sun
Arranging the pieces to vivid perfection

The stream of mortality flows uncontrolled
A boundless downward spiral to prospective void
Existence takes its toll, extinction unfolds
The Colossus falls back from it?s treshold

The cosmic grip so tight. Heed the celestial call
The rise, the voyage, the fall- tangled womb of mortal soil

Universal key of inception, pulled out of the grind
The growing seed of creation and time

Complex fusion, the bond of four- the nature?s core
Universal ritual, aesthetic beauty adored

The pendulum upholds the carnal deceit
Eternal, endless, indefinite

The paradox, render and the merge is complete
Nothing but the process is infinite

Nothing but the process is infinite
Eternal, endless, indefinite
5. Inner Landscape (2:51)
Incorporation
Analysis
Space/time, travel, silence, and freedom
Combinations
Flash back - fast forward
Repetition and rearrangement
Internal/external
Fragmentation
6. Invincible (4:25)
I was born a fragment of future
Raised by the dawn of existnece
I grew as one with the elements
Shown the cause of extinction

I have seen worlds bloom to explode
And horizons flush into voids of fire and ice

I have seen worlds explode to bloom
The dawn, the existence and the fall
I was raised by the dawn of existence
Breathing the fire of every sun

I was born a fragment of future
Raised by the dawn of existence
I turned grey in the storm shadows
Showing the cause of extinction

The substance of invicible motion
is invincible as the substance in motion

We rise again as you fall
I have seen life extinct to bloom
7. Icon Dreams (4:32)
The energy of the wisdom haze
Rinses the tide as a blend of fire
Upon the shores, where fires blaze
The pulse of time, shades of light

Plains stroked by the slumber sleep
Mountains embraced by rafting time
Swept into a new horizon
The source of life, the course at sight

Rise into a liquid dream
Where horizons burn, burn till dawn
My domain

Where horizons burn, burn till dawn
Rise into a liquid dream
Where the mountains groan, groans till dawn

The energy of the wisdom haze
Rinses the tide as a blend of fire
Upon the shores, where fires blaze
The pulse of time shades of light
8. Genesis Torn (5:16)
Temptation impales the vulnerable
Transforming the breed as it strains to erase
Cleansing the body and perfecting the bliss
Falling further into its hypnosis

Absurd scenery of strenght and endurance
The mundane edeavours for the perfect resistance
Evolution axis bent. Manipulation results
Contrast condemns and the answer insults

Genesis torn
Enigma solved
Utopia found
Euphoria born

Expanding origin stagnates at last
Bows down in unity when paradise is lost
Dirt grows in catharsis - raise of the inbred
Totality rejects the efforts of the misled

Genesis torn
Enigma solved
Utopia found
Euphoria born

Extinction embraces the crippled presence
Altered away from the salvaging renaissance
9. Embers (1:26)
10. Revolt (6:05)
I fed the fire with my flesh and desire
Spilt the blood upon existence
Tracing trails, a furious tail

Barely touching the mirror of reality
The deformation of what depression denote
A spiritual fusion, drown in conclusions
Derail the path, the course that...

The solar solace within the hideous
Here upon the heralds of dawn
The dawn of eternity
A northern notability

Revoke the reviavl of revolt
Burn the treason, the trinity
Yearn the heat of the fire
Face yesterdays tomorrow
The heralds of the past
The winds of a history cast
The profound spiritual fusion
Glimpse inward to my world

A fragment of fire, hordes of imagery
An illumination of all illustrations

The solar solace within the hideous
Here upon the heralds of dawn
The dawn of eternity
A northern notability

Barely touching the mirror of reality
The deformation of what depression denote
A spiritual fusion, drown in conclusions
Derail the path, the course that...

I fed the fire with my flesh and desire
Spilt the blood upon existence
Tracing trails, a furious tail
To the centre of chaos

Burn the treason, the trinity
Yearn the heat of the fire
Face yesterdays tomorrow
The heralds of the past
The winds of a history cast
The profound spiritual fusion
Glimpse inward to my world
