V Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Prelude (1:07)
In articulus sic aeternus - Spiritus
donec dies fas
Dies Irae, Dies Illa - Solvet saeclum in
favilla

(Born) into the moment that is Forever -
To breath until that fateful day
Day of Wrath, Day of Burning - All the
world to ashes turning...
2. Evolution (The Grand Design) (5:20)
Born from the light - journey into the
moment, delivered from thought and
sky
He will be one, one with the land -
Lord of wind and the sea and the sands
The one - The bringer of life

"All will bear a part of me - let this
hollow shell set your free to live as one"

Here we are - Children of Sun and Stars
the first to know and to understand
Living by the Law of the Ages
prophets and sages - forging Utopia

Great Ptah - Khnemu - sacred priest of
the Temple of Ra and the keeper of
truth
Crystalline spheres, the power of light,
grant us keys to the stars and the
secrets of flight
'Five shall be as One'

"We unlock the mysteries of
knowledge and technology"

Here we are - Children of Sun and Stars
the first to know and to understand
Living by the Law of the Ages
prophets and sages - forging Utopia

'We shall live forever, and cast out
those less divine
Gods we will be - rulers of the sea - in
our Grand design'

Here we are - Children of Sun and Stars
the first to know and to understand
Living by the Law of the Ages
prophets and sages - forging Utopia
3. Fallen (5:51)
Alone I walk, among the twisting
shadows
tempted by the ancient magic, the Power
of Five
My desire to mirror my own image -
and I will offer you no soul - offer you no
soul

Tonight Darkness will shadow the Light -
Symmetry divine, there's no force greater
Dividing the Fathers of Time

Feel my hate, I'm banished to this
wasteland
my Serpents plot the overthrow of your
temples and shrines
In the night, my army's rage and fury
burning my
shadow into the land - Vengeance by my
hand

Tonight Darkness will shadow the Light -
Symmetry divine, there's no force greater
Dividing the Fathers of Time
Tonight Darkness will shadow the Light -
Paradise denied - the balance of ages
forever lost in time

Was I sure of my fateful wish to evoke
the night from the day?
Thousands now join as one - be afraid
What have I done? Clouds are dimming
the Sun with his wrath of disease and
decay
This masque of vengeance leads my
death parade
What have I done?
"My shadow burning - my shadow burns
across the land...".

Tonight Darkness will shadow the Light -
Symmetry divine, there's no force greater
Dividing the Fathers of Time
Tonight Darkness will shadow the Light -
Paradise denied - the balance of ages
forever lost in time
4. Transcendence (0:39)
instrumental
5. Communion And The Oracle (7:45)
All we know, now has come undone
Balance lost between the Moon and Sun
Hear out prayers - Keepers of the Skies
Divine
Upon us all - let your wisdom shine

Losing faith as the madness prevails
in us all we are searching for a reason,
a need to calm the storm
In our sails - let your winds be strong

Breathe the air around you
The oceans fill your veins and winds
embrace your heart
Feel the change within you
The Sun and Moon align - The Grand
Design awaits a new start

From the skies, looking down on you
Through the clouds tainted crystal blue
"Such advancement, yet lacking the
control,
so unaware of your earthly roles"

Praise this child and the words of her
rhyme
A sacred gift - Magic of the Five will
bring you tranquillity
A new order of equality

Five senses come alive - Five reasons
thrive - Five nations unite - Unite as
one
Night and Day will find a way to keep
the Balance true
Let the Sky and Stars be your guide -
the destination is up to you

Raise our heads up to the Skies
Feel the essence of Time
Changing ways like the shifting tides
In the waves hear the Rhyme
6. The Bird-Serpent War / Cataclysm (4:02)
Mocking the ways of Justice - the
Serpent's Dragon - Vultures ride
Storming the Gates of Seven - no mortal
man shall break our stride
Our flames engulf your good works and
our terror reigns supreme
Dark beasts that do my bidding by
thrashing, tearing down your dreams

"Gather 'round chosen people of the
Grand Design
Scorn the prophet's words - 'the device
of our demise'..."

The crumbling earth beneath the
weapon's roar -
Raining fire from shore to shore
Neptune's might - the storming waves
rise to make the Kingdom's grave

All all Atlantis cried - a million souls
crying out
Save the child from the Sea - she must
carry on
The secrets and technology shrouded
deep in mystery -
only One will carry on - Carry on...
7. On The Breath Of Poseidon (3:02)
instrumental
8. Egypt (7:04)
Endless sands of Alnantees - etched in
gold, a city lost in time
and from the Sea - A Child speaks of
things unseen,
before the King - a teller of the Rhyme

Five align - hidden in the word a
message locked in time
find the Key - it draws the final line
between what is and what should never
be

Gaze in these eyes my child and see -
here by my side, you're destined to be
Fears in the night flee with the Sun - if
we are One
Kingdom of Gold I lay at your feet -
Ruler of Time and Space you will be
Rivers of Truth forever will run - if we
are One

From the ruins of Atlantis, the Lord of
Night rises from the sands
He seeks the one - his serpent's tail and
twisted tongue -
a bringer of War - Destroyer of the land

Five align - hidden in the word a
message locked in time
find the Key - it draws the final line
between what is and what should never
be

"Rise my minions - from within the deep
abyss
my disciples - thunder this necropolis"

Gaze in these eyes my child and see -
here by my side, you're destined to be
Fears in the night chasin the Sun - now
we are One
Kingdom of Gold now lay at my feet -
Ruler of Time and Space I will be
Rivers of Lies forever will run - now we
are One
9. The Death Of Balance / Lacrymosa (3:42)
Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla
judicandus homo reus
10. Absence Of Light (4:59)
Now at my feet, the dying voice of
Balance - nevermore shall there be a
way to fly,
a way to fly on wings of Divinity, as
words of wisdom fade away

The Law of One will fade and die
The rising Moon will crush the Sky

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Seek and find all the secrets left for you
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will you know

The hidden words - a piece of the
puzzle - Time will tell what will be
Between the lines, the past and future
you will find - the ones and zeros are
the key
to unlock what's sealed

The Law of One will fade and die
The rising Moon will crush the Sky

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Justice lost - a travesty we must undo
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will you know

"Awaken all from Set - Amentet -
Worship all that I represent"

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Destruction, death and war are in the
air
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
ruling all that we know

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Unbound - what once was lost - now is
found
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will we know
11. A Fool's Paradise (5:49)
What's become of the world - the colors
unfurl revealing a blackened haze
Conditioned to fear the voice that we
hear - calling an end of days
Millions of souls under control
like pawns to a king, led by a string, to
the final hour

Oh - Empire of the Sea, Lords of
technology that fell into the void
Oh shall it be as it was before - a
tragedy on every shore?

Is this the end of all we know -
Innocence lost so long ago
Woven in dreams - the darkest of
schemes now takes hold of our destiny
Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
living like fools - chaos will rule this
eternal paradise

Death by design, altering birth - trends
of the modern age
the wisdom of life erased from the
Earth - in a reckless rampage

Oh - Empire of the Sea, Lords of
technology that fell into the void
Oh shall it be as it was before - a
tragedy on every shore?

Is this the end of all we know -
Innocence lost so long ago
Woven in dreams - the darkest of
schemes now takes hold of our destiny
Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
living like fools - chaos will rule this
eternal paradise

Dies Irae, Dies Illa, Solvet Saeclum in
favilla

Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
living like fools - chaos will rule this
eternal paradise

Is this the end of all we know -
Innocence lost so long ago
Woven in dreams - the darkest of
schemes now takes hold of our destiny
Decades of greed, plague, famine and
war - we can't go on like this anymore
Lost in the Night - fading from sight - is
this the final setting sun?
12. Rediscovery (1:25)
instrumental
13. Rediscovery (Part II) - The New Mythology (12:01)
A voice from the past echoes the fate -
a tale of all things yet to come
as it once was, so it shall be again
modern day Children of the Sun

Seek the hidden rhyme and there you'll find
a new world order
Feel the mystery - so much to see through the
eyes of hope

The Thoughts of Ma'at, forever secured -
locked in the Ages
Goddess of Truth speaks eternally
from the depths of the pages

Seek the hidden words - as time unfolds
you'll find the answers
Feel the mystery - look to the Sea, under
Skies of Hope

What have we done? Can we right all the
wrongs - the evils and fears, for thousands of
years, that forever drain our vitality?
Can this go on without dyer consequence?
Our tragic ways, the end of days that shadow
the dawn of eternity...

He's taken form in human - likeness
and manifests himself in all our darkest
dreams
Preying upon centuries of weakness
Feasting on despair and our own selfish
greed

Bow down to me - (we will never understand)
Then take my hand and you will see - (we'll see...)
you will see paradise - (a paradise?) - of
pain and death
awaiting for you all - (we'll decide the future)

Lost evermore the essence of truth, although
she tried in vein to bring us peace, it will
ever rest in our hands
We've cried a thousand tears for all we had,
and all the things we could have been,
we must find our way again

Fools who looks for answers in a rhyme,
seeking out a lie, an illusion
I am the future, the ageless mutation

Five beyond the skies align, Zeus to Ra - the
final sign

My opposition's drawing near, feeding on his
fear - tasting anguish
I have the power - the ageless invasion

Five beyond the skies align, Zeus to Ra - the
final sign
From the Messenger on Wings, Peace and
War - a line of Kings...

Again the Titans clash on the edge of this
earthen plane
Now from the depths they speak - echoing
from the wave
- From the Waves...

Choose the way, five paths there for you to find
turn the page, the question lies between the lines can
we change?
