1. The Losers' Ball (1:49)
[Music & Lyrics: Aydan]

I was told by my Grandma'
Many years ago, I was just a child
"Boy, go and grow as an honest man
Look on what you've done with pride!"

The years have passed I'm a normal lad
I won't be named in school treatises
But looking back on what I've done
Yes, there's a glimpse of pride!

The losers' ball - Dance with me
to the sound of the fiddle
For the ones who fall - Like a cloudless
sky reflected in a billow
Learn a new step for each new Babylon
(build the city of lies and despair)

If you have time send a message
To every form of human life
"Hey out there if someone listens
This way we won't survive!"

We'll be drawn in arrogance
Hanged by the noose of greed
A new religion of violence
A bible of bad deeds

The losers' ball - Dance with me
to the sound of the fiddle
For the ones who fall - Like a cloudless
sky reflected in a billow
Learn a new step for each new Babylon
(build the city of lies-lust-despair)
2. Pathfinders (5:22)
[Music & Lyrics: Aydan]

Stand before the new born kind

There is a song, taken far by the winds

A rhyme of poets, a melody
Wrapped in a dream
The elvensong has gone, to another realm

Stand before the new born kind

As young and fresh as the Spring in bloom
The song is telling stories
Every little is a gain
Tells of joy, it tells of pain

Pathfinders...searching for new scents
We are pathfinders!

Rulers of a reign without throne and
crown "Thou will shall be done!"
beyond our bounds
Wondering, seeking and roaming
the unbeaten paths
Face future learning from the past

Lay down no bounds
to the things you can do
Everything's in your hand,
look up to the Moon
All we are gathering, shall we not fall
We'll hold (we'll hold on)
we will meet again
This time my dear old friend

Singing our song, we went abreast
We plunged into a deeply cloven track
May the stars shine
Upon the end of road, now you can't tide

Stand before the new born kind

As young and fresh as the Spring in bloom
The song is telling stories
Every little is a gain
Tells of joy, it tells of pain

Pathfinders...searching for emotions
We are pathfinders!

Rulers of a reign without throne and
crown "Thou will shall be done!"
beyond our bounds
Wondering, seeking and roaming
the unbeaten paths
Face future learning from the past

Lay down no bounds
to the things you can do
Everything's in your hand,
look up to the Moon
All we are gathering, shall we not fall
We'll hold (we'll hold on)
we will meet again
This time my dear old friend

If you can't express what you feel within
Remember not only words can speak
If a pen killed more than sword
Let this tune be your own word!

A new journey begins each time
(hear my call)
You draw lotsfor new things to find
We are willing to endure the chance

Lay down no bounds...
[Solos: Aydan, Jarpen]
3. Jigsaw Puzzle (4:17)
[Music & Lyrics: Jarpen]

Take a look at the new rules of this game
Wicked laughters are feeding their fame
Hearing the cries from the empty shells
Unmoved they seem

Hungry for turmoil and wedges
Ivy-clad so that we can't see
One peace at a time they steal
Collecting memories

Notch up another victory
Upon our shoulders and true beliefs
With wheedling words they reign
So sweet is our decay

Raise your voice
Aim as high as they can't see
Now you can say:
"Speak your last word,
speak your last word!"

Born in the garden of overgrown madness
We still search what remains of our lives
Scattered pieces for their jigsaw puzzle
Swapping destinies

Whencesoever they derive their powers
Where all hopes are misled and repressed
Vowing to break from the hardest chains
Tearless they seem

Prophets of doom
Playing god, how does it feel?
The fate of Sky and Earth
Awaits their sentence too

Shattered we are
Sold and bought in the Merchants' fair
Beneath hard flesh it burns
Beware of our hate!

[repeat Bridge and Chorus]

4. The Silk Dilemma (4:19)
[Music & Lyrics: Aydan]

Long the shores of a silent stream
I'm picking up pieces of my life
Finding out I was living my own dream
Beginning once again

I searched for themes
that I never knew before
It's like roaming a forest in winter
searching buds buried in snow
I learnt new languages,
new forms to proclaim
All the will to be so sincere,
not lying to myself again

Roaming through forest's trees
Creating a white snow trail on fallen
leaves

Oh Mother Moon
Illuminate my return
'cause the road I took is so obscure

Sinking and drowning in a sea of fears
Showing compassion to the moan
Already happened in day long gone
The silk dilemma is the key, it's still for me

One by one the lights fade out
The fright-night covers all with her cloak
You cannot name the colour of the dark
I fall into a dream

From the lands lying at the end of World
I am bringing this dress as a gift, it is
made with the purest silk
She smiled at me,
she never wore the dress
Touching the fabric was like holding
nothing in your hand

Roaming through forest's trees
Creating a white snow trail on fallen
leaves

Oh Mother Moon
Illuminate my return
'cause the road I took is so obscure

Sinking and drowning in a sea of fears
Showing compassion to the moan
Already happened in day long gone
The silk dilemma is the key

Hold my hand - 'till the sun set off
I'm proud of what I've done
At least the days I've spent are so totally
unique
5. Disappearing Sands (4:41)
[Music: Jarpen, Aydan / Lyrics: Jarpen]

At dawn the ships arrived, they sailed
through seas and foreign skies
To bring another age in lands
that needed no constraints
By the sign of the fire,
all pagan gods were bleeding
To dispossess thousands years
of wisdom and beliefs, oh

Think for a moment, fall astray
First step on sand, meant the last
of their old life
("now it's done, all is gone"), so pure,
With dignity all was carried on
"What's this fighting for?"

"Disappearing sands, familiar voices
Everytime I stare at the night inside us
All the places I cherish darken
Past memories are the only
true consolation
For what my eyes are forced to see"

The tears in her eyes were like rain
come from the gloomiest cloud
Pushed back from their own homes,
the germ of hate seized the heart
In a clear warm spring day,
his spirit left the body
Alone she stood while the ravens
flew away from ruins, oh

"Far till sky unites with earth I'll hide you
They cannot dig what's inside of us
Far till sky unites with earth I'll hide you
They cannot dig what's inside of us"

"My life for you, despair on us,
despair on us"

[Solos: Jarpen / Aydan]

Think for a moment, fall astray
First step on sand, meant the last
of their old life
("now it's done, all is gone"), so pure,
With dignity all was carried on
"What's this fighting for?"

"Disappearing sands, familiar voices
Everytime I stare at the night inside us
All the places I cherish darken
Past memories are the only
true consolation
For what my eyes are forced to see"
6. Moonchariot (6:49)
[Music:Aydan, Damnagoras / Lyrics: Aydan]

I built a cradle for the Moon
And from her chariot (she) grants my
boon - I'll keep my promises, I'm sure
She won't betray me

I'm bathed in her pale lightfall
Perceiving like a distant call
She whispers in my ears
riddles I don't understand

Enchanted by thy serene glow
Oh, silent Lady let me know
Of arcane doctrines and secrets
to be not revealed

You doodle Night with stains of stars
Shining arabesques so far

Recite your rhymes, and tell me how to

Find my way -
through the endless starways
Far away - as man could understand
I will show my respect
Prey upon - to release your anger
Lay upon - my mind

Painted in the sky,
as magic as a silver chariot
Take me on and on [2x]

You and I asleep in my haven
Shettered by an archway of trees
And when you wake up, I'd rather be
there - Standing by your side

A comet rends this summer sky
Like a tear falls from Her eye
I feel my heart brakes,
the Nightroof is my own refuge

Follow the steps of a pagan
Against who won't understand at all
And what I've learned is how to

Find my way -
through the endless starways
Far away - as man could understand
I will show my respect
Prey upon - to release your anger
Lay upon - my mind

Painted in the sky,
as magic as a silver chariot
Take me on and on [2x]

You and I asleep in my haven
Shettered by an archway of trees
And when you wake up, I'd rather be
there - Standing by your side

They're mocking me, they're fighting me,
I'm falling on my knees
They're celebrating victory
let'em do it as they please
They can mock me, they can fight me,
I will pick up off the ground
Again I stand before my enemies
can't let me down

[Solos: Aydan, Jarpen]

Painted in the sky,
as magic, as a silver chariot
Take me on and on...

[Solo licks: Aydan]
7. The Perpetual Knot (3:03)
[Music & Lyrics Aydan]

And this journey begins --
with the beat of wings of lark
Her wake ravishing - skyforged spark
Gold-leaves are falling, all beasts are
howling, the signs are clear!

The forces are near -
the crows say that someone will die
Embraces and fear - they tell no lies
Searching for new roads, sacrifice your
blood, the signs are clear!

Eyes in the darkness
They watch, they follow you
The Spirits guide your soul
all through the clues
Eyes in the darkness
Now hear the Sisters' voice,
you are free to choose your fate
now make your choice

Through the seven seas our quest goes,
pale moon our guide
Walking the trails of the perpetual knot
Roughly carved tree-trunks are shining in
fading lights
May you read the meanings, it's your lot

The journey comes to an end -
the lark plunged with sun into sea
All you love and defend -
belongs to you and me
Pagan traditions of forgotten missions,
the signs are clear!

Eyes in the darkness
They watch, they follow you
The Spirits guide your soul
all through the clues
Eyes in the darkness
Now hear the Sisters' voice,
you are free to choose your fate
now make your choice

Through the seven seas our quest goes,
pale moon our guide
Walking the trails of the perpetual knot
Roughly carved tree-trunks are shining
in fading lights
May you read the meanings

Through the seven seas our quest goes,
pale moon our guide
Walking the trails of the perpetual knot
Search for the fibres,
the dwelling light net of Wyrd
Roaming souls on branch of Mother Earth
8. Another Haven (5:06)
[Music & Lyrics: Jarpen]

[Solos: Jarpen / Aydan]

Serenity
Broken and twisted
Displaying sharp claws
in the name of liberty

Primordial greed
Disguised as good purpose
Always stood as a trademark
of our breed
History shows how to avoid all the sorrow
And its teachings we all should borrow
All the fears of the past still lay close

Far away the horizon twinkles
with fragments of hope
Far away some clay is left to mould
another haven

Watching powerless a flow of deeds
that is always the same
A freakshow from heaven sent
Witnessing the rise and fall
of the lessons we learned
They all seem forgotten
All wrongs and mischiefs,
still are carried within
Blinded in front of our tears

I just feel free
Merged into this rhyme
Inoffensive like a fallen stingless bee
Everyday I discover the fire
Burning deep like an undead pyre
Still it feeds all the tragedies of time

Far away the horizon twinkles
with fragments of hope
Far away some clay is left to mould
another haven

Watching powerless a flow of deeds
that is always the same
A freakshow from heaven sent
Witnessing the rise and fall
of the lessons we learned
They all seem forgotten
All wrongs and mischiefs,
still are carried within
Blinded in front of our tears

[Acoustic solo: Jarpen]

Everyday I discover the fire
Burning deep like an undead pyre
Still it feeds all the tragedies of time

Far away the horizon twinkles
with fragments of hope
Far away some clay is left to mould
another haven

Watching powerless a flow of deeds
that is always the same
A freakshow from heaven sent
Witnessing the rise and fall
of the lessons we learned
They all seem forgotten
All wrongs and mischiefs,
still are carried within
Blinded in front of our tears
Blinded in front of our tears
Blinded in front of our tears
9. A Fiery Stride (4:59)
[Music: Jarpen, Aydan / Lyrics: Jarpen]

Follow again one single piece
of dream afar
Spent my all whole life there,
chasing the hope

A drive so strong,
so deep I cannot see the end
Inborn sense of finding
what's beyond, in the furious storm

Reunifying with air and soil I am part of
Distant yet so close!

Longing for a whisper
that would carry me away
Faced my ultimate desire that was swirling
through the mazes of my mind

Watch my gold,
it can be never bought or sold
Made up and collected through the years
from emotions and dreams

A noble line I carry on
Exploring the ways I never saw

Longing for a whisper
that would carry me away
Faced my ultimate desire that was swirling
through the mazes of my mind

[Solo: Aydan]
[Melody: Jarpen / Regality: both]

Reunifying with air and soil I am part of
Distant yet so close!

Longing for a whisper
that would carry me away
Faced my ultimate desire that was swirling
through the mazes of my mind
If you were given chance to fly would you
retain your tears of joy
Pushed as far as any wind will go,
a fiery stride to the sun

Clearing my path from anything
that leads me to a fall
On the brink of loneliness, I faced
the illusion of leaving from the flock
On this one way trail to unfolding new
worlds
10. Midnight Circus (5:04)
[Music & Lyrics: Aydan]

[Solo: Jarpen]

Gone from this world
to find knowledge or pain
I follow myself from a distant
and fading dream

Loving her brightness so dear to me
it makes me to look further in
To enter a world hidden far (from home)
Hushing the fears, I can see with blinded
eyes

Nearby the circus this time I won't pass!
Where all the fears and indifference lie
A warm place to drown
your own need to find
The questions that bury your mind
You won't find the answers to Life
(this way)
Now turn your head, step back from the
jesters, run!

A quest that only some would take
It grabs our soul if there is one
Could (it) be that we're left alone
Or guided by the moonlight

Runaway runaway runaway
From this midnight circus
On this ride on this tide
I am crawling deep inside
And fair wind's awaiting me

[Lead: Jarpen]

Fallen away from the chains of my mind
It's my own choice to attain the truth
Free from all wavering I hear a song
Go far ahead, you will hear
A harmony carved into Life
Few final steps
Dream on...

[Solos: Aydan, Jarpen]

Runaway runaway runaway
From this midnight circus
On this ride on this tide
I am crawling deep inside
And fair wind's awaiting me

Runaway runaway runaway
And all the fear is gone now
On this path we take, this lifewe share
An answer might appear
And fair wind's awaiting me

A quest that only some would take
It grabs our soul if there is one
Could (it) be that we're left alone
Or guided by the moonlight

Burning constellation
On this trail to the unknown
I just keep on questoning
For an answer never told
Darker than the night
Is the way we're passing through

Courage and faith it takes
To make it last that far
It may ends for tomorrow
Or it may take a lifetime

(Dream on...)

[Solo licks: Aydan]
11. A Poem for the Firmament (12:09)
[Music: Aydan, Jarpen / Lyrics: Aydan]

[DAWN: Fragments of star]

It's simply too hard
To blow out all these fragments of star
The dawn never shines
I'm condemned to this eternal night

Fly away, far away
Oh, whence I could feel you whole
There's a light in your eyes I'll follow
A spark of endless dreams
There's a light in your eyes while you're
holding me tight it enriches my life, it
holds me spellbound

It crawls all inside
It's the wish to back down and hide
Like the calm sea
It's the haven of forces within

Fly away, far away
Oh, up this path I rode
I was searching for a reason
I lost the thread of tale
Fly away, far away
Oh, whence I could feel you whole
There's a light in your eyes I'll follow
A spark of endless dreams
There's a light in your eyes while you're
holding me tight
It enriches my life, holds me spellbound

[DAY: Autumn runes]

On the scars of old runes, thousands of
forgotten memories and hopes
Are carved in stone, symbols of my childhood
gone, on the wind floats a dream
and hundreds of my broken promises
and oaths
Taken by the stream, artefacts of what I
was

Read the signs on the trees,
written by golden leaves
Winds are howling their serenades,
Ancient chants singing all the good aims
I betrayed

Another night has passed, and with it all
the fears and dreads are gone,
And the shadows have faded

Clouds are leaving the sky, the horizon
point out new ways to be found,
There is always a trail to follow, and it will
take you home

Follow all the scents
before light passes away
Long before the shadows fall
As covering miles in the distance
you will see
What you searched,
you will catch sight of your dreams
Dwelling forevermore, wander aimlessly

It's the fatal falling, on the path we
choose
We're searching for answers
that never appear
We're searching for lands beyond
all limits, we're falling!

Millions of emotions (have) passed
through my heart since I'm on this Earth
But the ones that remain are the ones
we're living for

[Repeat Bridge & Chorus]

[Solos: Aydan, Jarpen, both]

[TWILIGHT: The chant of the first snow]

It's the sweetest Night of all
It's a moment that lengthens
to eternity and more
While the flakes soundless will fall
I hear the sound of laugther
coming from so high above
And the promise once made
now it's broken
The curtain slowly falls
On the angel that kissed me

It's the Night of cruel remorse
It remains only a distant memory
of things undone
A return to innocence
A travel back in time when everything
seems clear and pure
And the promise once made
now it's broken
The curtain slowly falls
On the angel that kissed me

[DEEP NIGHT: The Dreamcurse]

Cursed, cursed
That lone and threadlike figure
So shapelessly unbounded
Will haunt that empty jar
That is me

Cursed, cursed
I'm deep into transparency
A dreamy spiral staircase
A voice, a whisper echo in the gloom

Cursed (cursed), cursed (cursed)
I sharpen all my sleeping senses
Encircle my own wish
I'll never die!

Cursed, cursed
A gloomy sense of sadness
Impaled my arid heart
To the sceptre of melancholy

Cursed (cursed), cursed (cursed)
On the stroke of my halfhour
The token has been shown
Eternal wearing the Red Death masque!

Thousand ways of living
In the end (I) got my reward
I don't feel alone no more

Fly away, far away
Oh, up this path I rode
I was searching for a reason
I lost the thread of tale
Fly away, far away
Oh, whence I could feel you whole
There's a light in your eyes I'll follow
A spark of endless dreams
There's a light in your eyes
while you're holding me tight
It enriches my life, holds me spellbound

...and finally is day again...

On the scars of old runes, thousands of
forgotten memories and hopes
Are carved in stone,
symbols of my childhood gone,
on the wind floats a dream and hundreds
of my broken promises and oaths
Taken by the stream,
artefacts of what I was

Read the signs on the trees,
written by golden leaves
Winds are howling their serenades,
Ancient chants singing all the good aims
I betrayed

It's the fatal falling,
on the path we choose
We're searching for answers
that never appear
We're searching for lands beyond
all limits, we're falling!
