1. Shadow of the Snake (5:22)
Music by: Blues Funeral
Lyrics by: Maurice Eggenschwiler

The night is black with untold secrets
But the light on the hill is growing
Dark veils shuffle forth
Beneath the full moon glowing

Mount a cross in shallow earth
Wreathed between trees swaying
A gesture of cosmic deference
But not a moment for praying

Farewell my sanity
Your tears are just a forgery
These winds recall a memory
Of a time addled fallacy (yeah)

Thirty pieces of tainted silver
And a kiss for old time’s sake
Abandon reason in favor of treason
In the shadow of the Snake

A glass of absinthe to clear my head
False visions green and enticing
Devils summon me with Gabriel’s horn
Frozen valley arising

Deprived of all vitality
Your siren call, pure sophistry
A rising tide of malady
Descending on the revelry (yeah)

(Guitar Lead – Eggenschwiler)

(Organ Lead – Kimmel)
2. Awakening (6:30)
Music by: Blues Funeral
Lyrics by: Jan Kimmel

(Lead – Eggenschwiler)

I want to ask you a question
The answer I may not like
In all the things I've experienced
Something I've yet to find

He walks upon the land
He is one with strife
Floats on darkest waters
Rediscovered life

(Lead – Kimmel)

I want to pose you a question
The answer may not be right
Here there is an empty shell
One day into one of the night

He walks upon the land
He is one with strife
Floats on darkest waters
Rediscovered life

I haven't slept in years
I haven't dreamt since birth
When I first saw a light
And fell onto the earth

Eternal throne of sleep
Is where he rests his bones
Not to rejoice not to weep
Not his but not disowned

(Lead – Eggenschwiler)

(Lead – Kimmel)

I am awake now
I am awake now
I am awake now
I am awake now

He walks upon the land
He is one with strife
Floats on darkest waters
Rediscovered life

I haven't slept in years
I haven't dreamt since birth
When I first saw a light
And fell onto the earth

Eternal throne of sleep
Is where he rests his bones
Not to rejoice not to weep
Not his but not disowned
3. Illusions of Reality (5:04)
Music by: Blues Funeral
Lyrics by: Jan Kimmel

Where have you been? I couldn't find you in the firelight
Lost in this sin, another kind of feeling tonight

Reckless, but shy
Invested, such pride
Makes no difference to me
I got the dark by my side

Whom did you see? I want to know if they have opened their eyes
Taken from me, another way of stealing tonight

(Lead – Eggenschwiler)

Restless, inside
Entrusted, so right
Makes no difference to me
Cuz I've got you by my side

Is this reality?
Is it “us” or just you and me?
Addicted to fantasy
We break into heresy

(Lead – Eggenschwiler)

He's meant to be alone
You won't find him
Made to follow home
You won't guide him

(Lead – Kimmel)

Will you believe? I have to know before the sun rises high
Thousands of leaves, have fallen from the trees as winter presides

Is this reality?
Is it “us” or just you and me?
Addicted to fantasy
We break into heresy

Is this reality?
Is it “us” or just you and me?
Addicted to fantasy
We break into heresy

(Lead – Kimmel)
4. Firedrake (6:53)
Music by: Blues Funeral
Lyrics by: Maurice Eggenschwiler

Washed up on a shore
Framed between yesterday and nowhere
A thousand bones maybe more
Speaking in abject silence

Stay close my child
We’ll brave this rain

Moonless sky overhead
Hearts heavy with dread for tomorrow
Do you envy the dead?
Gods cry when even Death feels sorrow

Sleep now my child
We’ll brave this pain

We wait for the dawn
But the dawn waits for no one

Yet here we stand
Holding fire
With the ash in my hand
My hope’s raised higher

The dreams of the past
Shall fade in a whisper
I want these embers to last
Even if I’m a drifter

We wait for the dawn
But the dawn waits for no one

Yet here we stand
On this trail
Though dust covers the land
You will prevail

A place you never knew
Now words on a page
Fear not my firedrake
You’ll bring sun to this Age

(Lead – Kimmel)

(Lead – Eggenschwiler)
5. Casimir (6:49)
Music by: Blues Funeral
Lyrics by: Jan Kimmel

(Intro theme – Eggenschwiler)
(Intro theme – Kimmel)

(Melody – Eggenschwiler)
(Melody – Kimmel)

A wave that pulls aside
The fiery notions keeping one alive
Compelling and divine
One will not swallow a single crime

Found in a strand of time
A chance occurrence, inside another's mind
They become intertwined
One does not follow; she doesn't mind
She does not mind

(Melody – Eggenschwiler)
(Melody – Kimmel)

A thought so deep
It's got to be from somewhere else

Played by the sea
Without a sense of himself

Lost in a strand of time
Another occurrence, inside another's mind
They become intertwined
One cannot follow; she pays no mind
She pays no mind

(Melody – Eggenschwiler)
(Melody – Kimmel)

Running to that place
Of ghosts and brick and stone
Alleyways and moonlight
So small but not alone

Feeling so heavy
With demons on his shoulders
Yet so enlightened and
Never getting older

Under a streetlight
Thousands of years
Cannot extradite
A lifetime full of tears

(Solo – Eggenschwiler)
(Solo – Kimmel)

6. The Gathering Dust (8:21)
Music by: Blues Funeral
Lyrics by: Maurice Eggenschwiler

Deep within these halls so white
Two figures dance by candlelight
Sun and Moon, their hands entwined
Each step, a footprint in my mind,

Each mask conceals a face I know
A stale, blank gaze with eyes aglow
The music swells, then fades away
Beneath the apex of decay

“Consider this”, they stared and said,
Liberty is for the dead

Lost in the gathering dust
Frames surrounded by rust
Gone were the days of trust
Basking in the unjust
Portraits, depicting the atrophy
Of an everlasting fantasy

Standing on the parlor floor
A statue of forgotten lore
Defiantly it beckons them
Behold the princely diadem

The words they speak are dark and bright
Bereaved of their own sense of sight
Lost within this maze of tempest
Guided by their own unrest

“Observe” they said as one
Will you remember…when we’re gone

Lost in the gathering dust
Frames surrounded by rust
Gone were the days of trust
Basking in the unjust
Portraits, depicting the atrophy
Of an everlasting fantasy

(Lead – Eggenschwiler)
