Universal Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Havoc (6:42)
Nature is about to regain
The firm bastion of existence
A circular and furious monument
Of the everlasting remnants of evolution

The winds rove beyond the mountains
Lurking the bate-the delusion of faith
The storm distends,retribution descends
The people of the sham,kneels in shame

Havoc...

As the blood in my veins
Comes around to claim
As the roots of my trails
Come around to tame
The dignity of Nature

The winds rove beyond the mountains
Lurking the bate-the delusion of fate
The storm descends,retribution distends
The mankind of earth,praise the new pagan path

As the blood in my veins
Comes around to claim
As the roots of my trails
Come around to tame
The dignity of Nature

Nature is about to sustain
The evolver of existence
The moment of care and fear
The revolution of evolution

Storm of the millennium, havoc the moment
Rivers unfold, abruptly in deep oceans

A breeze , a storm -havoc

Storm of the millennium, havoc the moment
Rivers unfold, abruptly in deep oceans
2. Reason (6:55)
Peeling the layers
to expose the facts
was like spraying
and ancient painting
with ammonia

Faces melted,
colours turned pale,
shapes lost their vivacity
and essences faded
to distracted blurs

Now the canvas is all white
and my hands are unsoiled
Still all reasons seems replaced
By the false notion of a lucid portrait

Yet again, the savage remains

This empty work of art still gains a crowd
The blind eagerly discuss
the liveliness of its colours
and the deaf insist
it's accompanied by quiet chants

The painter,
a highly praised
but anonymous deity,
lurks in the periphery of the exhibition
amused by the fuzz he is causing,
despite his many flaws

The canvas is all white
and my hands are unsoiled
Still all reasons seems replaced
By the false notion of a lucid portrait
3. The Stir of Seasons (4:01)
Seconds, minutes and hours
The pace, a momentary notion
Sand, stone and mountain
The entwinement of time and erosion

Children, youth and the man
A pristine face moldered by seasons
Summer, autumn and winter
Behold the recoiling stir of the reasons
4. For A Thousand Years to Come (6:46)
A new dawn is rising
To enlight the ruins of the future
As a distant echo from the past
Circles above , roves of the skyline

Circles above, roves the skyline
Dives into the future cast

Years to come, years that passed
a presence cached by the wind
Woven in reminiscence and mystery
Manifested by the dome of history

Nature strives towards a new dawn
Mankind oppresses, resigns and falls
Into perverted conceitedness

Millions of nights
Millions of days
existence endure through sharpen margins

Thousands of years
Thousands of ways
all paths lead to the final steep fall

Through the brim of the sun
Along the ring of the verge


For a thousand years to come
Comes the autumn,winter,and spring
For a thousand years to come
Comes birth,life, and death

For a thousand years...

For a thousand years to come
Comes birth,life, and death


Nature strives towards a new dawn
Mankind oppresses, resigns and falls
Into perverted conceitedness


Millions of nights
Millions of days
existence endure through sharpen margins

Thousands of years
Thousands of ways
all paths lead to the final steep fall
5. Abrasion Tide (7:14)
We're ensnared by the fate if persistence
As the forces of nature interact
To weather slope and mountain, close and by distance
Creating expanding ventifacts

Running water conducts the erosion
Leading grains of sand in the grind
Empowered by wind,time, and oceans
To wear down soil's rind

A tide that changes primary plains
Even principles positions
A flood that runs untimely through the elements and our veins
Shifting our focus and our definitions

New perspective from a vaster reflection
Thoughts flow like water from a hillock
That's repeatedly rinsed ,achieving friction
Releasing knowledge of the rock

An archaic course across the outer core
Seasons transform while remodeling the Solum
Above the altering scenery stars soar
Watching the drama like diffuse phantoms

The land is disintegrated by a power that was ice bound
At the same time fertilized
As our forefather's feet touched a ground
That nature constantly has revised
6. Fleshflower (3:28)
White petals
Red lines
Highest heaven
Deepest mines
Vertically green
This is how it's seen

I never thought the world would come to this
I never thought it would come to this

Sturdy feet and arid ground
Dusty shoes and not a sound

Sturdy feet and arid ground
Dusty shoes and not a sound

Soft , red glow
Ever so slow
Never
Near
the flaw
7. Worldwide (6:59)
The principles of the nature
Firm shapes of consistency
A treasury concealed in time
Inevitable ,invincible , an axiom

Diversity crafted by evolution
Yet the path of the future is carved in rock
As the horizontal horizon
As the vertical steeps of summits

The master and the apprentice
Forgotten moments in history
Mankind wanders ,mountains stand still
The master and the slave
A congregation that never deceives
Mankind dies,havoc never stills

Fire oppose water
Water oppose fire
Earth oppose air
Air oppose earth

The way of the world
The route of existence
Worldwide - mankind's resistance

The way of the world
The route of existence
Worldwide - nature's persistence

Fire oppose water
Water oppose fire

The master and the apprentice
Forgotten moments in history
Mankind wanders ,mountains stand still
The master and the slave
A congregation that never deceives
Mankind dies,havoc never stills

Diversity tamed by devolution
With delusion comes confusion
Where the crossroad never crosses
The path circles for all eternity
8. My Domain (4:49)
There was a time
A time when every moment showed
A place where the symphonies shone
Through branches and leaves
The symphonies of nature...

There was a time
A time when one grew with trees
A place where the seeds were falling
Through branches and leaves
The creation of the Nature...

There is a time
A time when the past returns
A place where winds stir
Through branches and leaves
The dawn of a brighter sun
A disharmonic enclosure

There comes a time
A time when the sun implodes
A place where the current stills
Under the branches and leaves
The moment that ends
The night of eternity descends

The last sunset of my domain...
