Of the Sun + Moon Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Ayltuthus I (0:38)
(Instrumental)
2. Of the Sun + Moon (4:26)
the echoes of my past livez
now float in the recessez of my mind
a life beneath the virgin starz
forever free we ran in forestz high
when from the skiez
there came travellerz from beyond our realmz

of the sun + moon
of the sun + moon
from a shore that existz no more
there sailed a ship
that vanished in the skiez
an ancient eyez the world above
certain he'll return there when he diez
as thoughtz of man
reach out in wavez to unknown darkness blind

morning seez a figure press cold fingerz
to the warmth felt from the sun
in light of the moon a different man
listenz to the night as he had once done
from flesh to steel he buildz his world
still governed by the wayz


of the sun + moon
of the sun + moon
of the sun + moon
3. Fieldz the Sunshrine (4:28)
sunshrine
symptomatic matter
recollective interchange
sometimez lifeline passive membranez
intellect so strange
a borderless society
informal relativity
conjunctional relief
in some new distorted land
sunshrine
a parametric solstice sea
beneath a subchromatic lie
an alternated empire crumblez
vanishing from sky
decided interaction
as a concept in contraction
between the linez we modulate
of the boundariez unaware
sunshrine

i live in fieldz the sunshrine
the underlying presence yieldz
a power + awareness
of my existence in fieldz
sunshrine
symptomatic matter
recollective interchange
a blind line procreative
macroisolate in range
loop fact integrity
deleted timeless estuary
release the moldz
that bind the thoughtz
+ free the hostile reign
sunshrine
4. Salem (4:27)
weary + weathered she lay in her cell
damned by the storiez the children will tell
a creature of hadez who workz with the night
will soon feel the power of the holy right
for angry streetz cry satan'z child
with hair of fire + eyez so wild
you cast spellz upon our children now fear
the punishment delivered here

salem
run children run for your livez
don't talk to strangerz
avoid their different eyez
fear + distrust make them live in their livez
our difference + freedom
scarez them to death


salem
salem
a black moonless night
in their eyes
timeless silhouettez in the shadowz betrayed
lightless + lifeless
in the shadowz they stay
hanged by the gallowz
you're not a threat to anyone
by daylight you'll realize
what it is you have done


salem
salem
5. The Reign of Night Rainz (1:27)
(Instrumental)
6. Legacy (4:27)
as a weary wind blown day turnz grey
a skyward glance took me away
the eternal mind
let itz message flow
endowing truth i had never known

to be at piece within the memoriez
that are my legacy
inherited from immortalz past
the thoughtz instilled
the diez are cast
memoriez of life
a storm of dreamz
that troubled timez
ride calm for me


to be at piece within the memoriez
that are my legacy
sunlight was descending on the valley
sliverz of light
sliced through the treez
tranquil in my subconscious sanctuary
a place where the woundz of time
can heal

the sunlight wastez an idle day
beneath blue summer skiez I lay
a mist of memory cloudz containz containz
the imagez that will remain forever

moonlight crept into the shadow hallwayz
starshine left the afternoon to play
silence holdz the darkness to itz intimacy


be at piece within the memoriez
that are my legacy
7. To Lunar Windz... (4:24)
(Instrumental)
8. The Enlightenment (3:29)
it was the dawn of IIII
twin sunz slowly slid their light
over valleyz darkened for III
enlightenment came only as they found deliverance
by the one dubbed master
as he quelled the shroud of obscurity
but as shadowz rose from cold canyon floorz
the curse of a dead star was instilled on the universe
9. Master of the Sun (6:55)
this course has come before
as the vigil of a dark land can reveal
it castz itz shadowz
where the wicked wastelingz' doingz
remain concealed
until the lightening strikez
+ desecratez the powerz of the night
as the master of the sun
findz the dawn in raining light

from beyond the realmz of the barrier plainz
abysmal space cloaked in freezing rainz
long before the embryonic creation had begun
there appeared the master of the sun

this curse has come before
as light returnz
the shadowz find their placez
sheathed from the seedz of light
the universe embracez
across the boundariez of time
there lay an energy unending
the future merged into the past
timeless light ever bending

far beyond the rainz of a derelict moon
winter nightz that came too soon
into the prison of a battle
that could never be won
without the master of the sun

there came a voice a mighty cry
that echoed through the void
it creased screamz across the sonic cloudz
their catalyst sun destroyed
a furnace rendered death
to hostile landz it left in dust
the frost returned to freeze the world
embedded in itz crust
from out of time the universe
conceived within itz core
a vigilant defensive for itz elemental warz
on solar windz they set their sailz
heading for lunar seaz
marauderz fell as silent starz
in galaxiez deceased
deafened of their outcriez
in the labyrinthz of space
the oceanz swelled + from their tidez
beginz the human race


far beyond the reign of the barrier plainz
high above the cloudz
the pilot findz a home in the sky again
for long before the embryonic creation had begun
there appeared the master of the sun
the master of the sun
master of the sun
10. The Pressing (3:10)
winding through the cloudz
somewhere out of time
a journey of the mind
into the thought of other timez
daylight makez itz way to a foreign sky
a landscape new to see
the universe my own again

the pressing into another time

gently windz caress
thoughtz of different mindz
connected by their fieldz
now sharing thoughtz of freedom
bleeding through the veinz
between platez of time
the moment to redeem
when end + beginning collide

the pressing into another time
the pressing into another time
safe at home again
as a wind ridez by
within a ventured mind
pressing through the plainz
to another world
11. In Light of the Moon (3:08)
oceanz be
let me find you
as the forest partz to see
my spirit flowz
deep within your past
follow the sun
as her colourz run
beneath the silent recluse
of your bodiez warm
now the sky retainz the one
which takez itz course
as nocturnal sun
in light of the moon
we press towardz the shore tonight
oceanz rise
let me find you
as you come ashore
now you reach me in wavez
that dance in the night
higher you climb envisioned within
the soft velvet light
that strayz itz beamz
on the sandz of time
that have freed me
to eternity
in light of the moon
we press towardz the shore
oceanz subside
for now the night
has turned the tidez
+ wash away the pain of yesterday
leave behind tomorrow for the psychic sea
for i know as the shoreline returnz to you
so shall my life return to me
in light of the moon
in light of the moon
in light of the moon
12. Moon (8:10)
I. Enigma

elusion illusion
finding the conclusion
that may never be reached
beseeched by those
who'll risk the poison die
for eyeful close examination
exaggeration
misleading for the searcher
as misbelieving nor conceiving
what liez beyond the gate
awaitz attention
apprehension of your state
of being inquisitive

ambition condition
yourself as supposition
that the answer
not even doez exist
persist + you will find
mind you another quest
the jest of the occasion
will bring a repetition
of the beginning or end
the same as a friend
who tried respond

sour the hour
see me to the tower
o'er the courtyard
outward the children play
away from the grip of tomorrow
or sorrow will bring on the start
of seclusion delusion of all that'z been done
in this fantasy
completing receding
into the opening of a new day

II. Memoirs (Of The Dream Of Dawn)

across the common
where the madman screamz
into a pool
of infinite reflectionz
a misty veil
liftz itz purple huez
into the view of my inner eye
say hey as i fade to grey
i catch the sunrise coming on
in memoirz of the dream of dawn

at the garden gate
i just had to wait
for they all could see i was leaving
as it slowly swung
on hingez where it hung
i closed the real world behind
as it beckoned me to carry on
in memoirz of the dream of dawn

shifting sightz on summer nightz
danced across my magic lawnz
that left winter'z freeze
tinged on autumn leavez
as memoirz of the dream of dawn

a pond of space left in my place
held my storiez till the morning
as i lay shadowed in warm silhouettez
living memoirz
of the dream of dawn

my silent wordz
whispered still + sound
embraced in my life'z secret groundz
a paradise within my mind
across the sleepy yawn
memoirz of the dream of dawn
