1. Timeless Conception (1:56 )
2. Womb Of Fire (4:22)
The immense front of water
disintegrates over the rocks
The raged sea rises, it bends,
and explodes delivering its foam
Iodized, scents of sea suppress
the yells which announce
A new life, boundless life

Destroy that barrier
Which keeps you in isolation
Follow the breeze,
let it guide your path

Organic combination of stardust
Chaos masked as order
Divine disciplined mass of cells

Gasp for air one first time
Newborn, be fed!

Far inside the guts of destiny (revolving)
He bears the fate of a warrior!
There's nothing to deny!

Bandua GodFather guide his path
May cover our foes with a burning wrath
How you'll survive? A mystery!
Fulfilled will be this prophecy!

Fire, it burns like fire... The womb unveils
Smell up the snow dear child
Inhale, feed up from what thin air provides
Exhale, let shallow breathing flow...

Bandua GodFather guide his path
May cover our foes with a burning wrath
How you'll survive? A mystery!
Fulfilled will be this prophecy!
Water is your element
And even tough thirst is what makes you move
It's in fire that your vision will come true
Yell, Yell, to Life!
3. Endurance Of The Mind (4:45)
Left behind is the comfort of plains
Ahead a harsh way to follow
Reversing course of rivers and springs
Until the top of mountains - the grove of learning

Overcome the holes in this permeable shell
Vulnerable to the edging bites of swords

Prepare to cope with an unforgiving reality
Carry a stoic heart whenever needed
Find balance in suffocating mayhem
Focus on its weakest point

Brave warrior, ready to face death for our cause
Reason! This illogic primitive emotions
Replenish a rational mind
Primordial fear? Jettison that fear!

Lips broken in cold, immersed in blood
Skin turns dark as it pads impact
Gritting teeth gets a compass musical
A tested mind!

Left behind is the comfort of the plains
Ahead a harsh way to follow
Reversing course of rivers and springs
Until the top of mountain - the grove of learning

Prepare to cope with an unforgiving reality
Carry a stoic heart whenever needed
Find balance in suffocating mayhem
Focus on its weakest point

Brave warrior, ready to face death for our clause
Reason! This illogic primitive emotions
Replenish a rational mind
Primordial fear? Jettison that fear!
4. Math Of War (3:21)
The drive which fed this lasting existence
Urge that impelled it forward, steadily on
Strolls unconcerned in our vicinity
Causing flashes to appear
swarm vision with images

Thrusting swords! Splintering shields!
Cries of war
Years devoted to relentless training

By fall, past century's outcome must be settled
One army will finally collapse, crumble, phase out!

Fight to bash away all foes
Clean this plague
Clean this taint away
To never return

Postulation of surprise
Anticipating the hunter's route
Lure his path with desirable baits

Thrusting swords! Splintering shield!
Cries of war
Discipline of persistence, progression

The time has come! Onward! Charge!!!

Distill chaos into measurable variables
Reject chance by principle
Confine luck to a damp cell

Theorem of Invasion
When the target is stretched too far

Apply tilt rule "divide to conquer"
Postulations of surprise
Anticipate the hunter's route
Reverse his nature
Transformed into a prey

By fall, past century's outcome must be settled
One army will finally collapse, crumble, phase out!

Fight to bash away all foes
Clean this plague
Clean this taint away...
To never return
5. Trail To A New Land (5:04)
Gulls harsh singing greets the day
Marvelous chant of shores!
Vicious storms, dry food scurvied mouth
First time in months, left behind at last

Living close to the concept of infinity
Time's progression is dim and slow
The purpose: to chase a new world
Expand the windows of our tiny home

Minstrel's delight, song of the daring souls
A madman's dream, a test to our fate
Outraged waves throw spent men overboard
Blistered hands grasp worn drenched ropes

You can't see in this paradise
Without handshakiing hell first

We travel, in a permanent motion
Guided by stars and planets alone
But to where?

Judging by these charts,
we achieved the emptiness!
End of all things, the greatest of falls!
What is hidden beyond?
Which secrets to unfold?
A legend to rise, grow and form,
to last for eternity!

Thus we find the trail
to this new unclaimed land
Redefine the landscapes of the earth
Draw deserts, cliffs, mountains and plains
A veil was lifted, letting rays of light go through

Mark of ownership, unrolled exuberant banner
Twisting wildly under the fury of the wind

Collect the fruits of your bold charges
Sunken ships shall not rest in vain
Bloat the decks with spice and gold
Fulfill the hunger of a new empire!

Bathe in glory, defier of death!
Trick the elements, perils and succeed!
This day others should not forget!
Request a chapter in the annals of history!

Minstrel's delight, song of the daring souls
A madman's dream, a test to our fate
Outraged waves throw spent men overboard
Blistered hands grasp worn drenched ropes
6. Brewed To Taste Like Glory (5:07)
Come in, gather around this stand
Folks from afar, natives or colonizers
You've done well, feel free to drink
Rejoice in this generous banquet

Savor all yeast fermentations
From beer to mead to wine
Savor all yeast derivations
From beer to mead to wine

Come in, gather around this hall
My friends, the breweries are ready
You've done well, feel free to drink tonight
In honor to our brilliant conquests!

Savor all yeast fermentations
From beer to mead to wine
Savor all yeast derivations
From beer to mead to wine

Irresistible deliberate intoxication
Exacerbating the immense remote subjugations
Overwhelming pleasure of victory
A symbolic reward for categorical grandeur

Fermentations! Derivations!

Prospection of its manufacturing process
Components extracted from magnanimous nature
Each one recognizes and works their role
Let's elaborate on its intrinsic details

Numb bee, flying sideways carrying pollen to the nest
Sting! Protect the nectar sprayed in its legs
Glued to tiny black filaments
Numb bee fly!

Twisted! Distorted! Oblique!
Collaborative orchestrations

Chemical scent, sweet inviting tempting juice
Purified, boiled to disintegrate wandering well parasites

Brewed mead gone! Brewed wine gone!
Brewed beer gone! Brewed mead gone!

Liberate us from all sleep,
Stretch the span of this night...
Endless thirst 'till we fall
Thriving folks share this splendor

Gentlemen, the next round is served!

Come in, gather around this stand
Folks from afar, natives or colonizers
You've done well, feel free to drink
Rejoice in this generous banquet

Savor all yeast fermentations
From beer to mead to wine
Savor all yeast derivations
From beer to mead to wine
7. Years Of Peace (5:05)
With the mildness of dandelion spores
Dust clouds float gently,
embracing the absence of patterns
Finding dizzy sleep on this ground
Covering the golden booze,
oozing from a merry pile of jars

Slowly my eyes adjust to the clarity outside
Piercing the brain like relentless mining picks

Stubborn ember's light flickers and shut
Ashamed when obfuscated by the rising sun
Only for a brief moment,
It won't be long until they're lit again

Festivities are still roaring,
a homage to glorious days
After witnessing years of victories,
fierce and brutal expansion
What's next to come?

Now we can only rest, rest and eat
And drink, and smoke, and stumble, and roll
But even with these endless celebrations,
the horizon is a line of monotony
Surprisingly bitter gift for the accomplished success...
At least, for a warrior

We swirl, and dance like sottish creatures,
Expelling energy from every pore

We let morning invite us to sleep,
something that night has evaded for many weeks...

Our dreams filled with vivid images,
The heat of battle...
Sweat dripping inside the armor

Slowly my eyes adjust to the clarity outside
Piercing the brain like relentless mining picks

Stubborn ember's light flickers and shut
Ashamed when obfuscated by the midday sun

Slowly my eyes adjust to the clarity outside...
NO!!!
8. Lured To Comfort (1:45)
Following heroic conquests, came the years of peace
For once persistent, exhausted as warriors could be
Sleep wouldn't last forever
It was the moment to celebrate
A new reality
A new home
A new life
The days of war were over
9. Fighting To The End (5:29)
Nothing is permanent, or lasts by itself
Dormant frontiers, sharpen your senses
Don't rely, don't trust, on these still winds

Futile random happiness,
An engulfing optimism
Gives way to a blissful tranquility

War wit is consumed by excessive folly
It adorns once tireless warriors
With belly-shaped sympathy

Keepers of the outer walls, heat my advice!
Nothing is permanent, or lasts by itself
Dormant frontiers, sharpen your senses
Don't rely; don't trust on these still winds

The shroud of peace induces a soft mentality
Encourages engaging flirts
Procreation and family

Men get sloppy, tend to overlook the rusty blades
Lower their guards imprudently

No more war wit, all is spirited folly
Futile happiness, blissful tranquility

A starving horse is coming to the gates
Its rider dragged beside
Daunting news are told
An army is heading this way

No more war wit, all is spirited folly
Futile happiness, blissful tranquility

I always knew that the nature of peace was temporary
So I never stopped my training,
These news were not difficult to foretell
For somewhere alter the dry summer
Messengers heading south never returned

Wary of this omen
I felt eerie silence infiltrate
It was just a question of time
To confirm my worst fears
And now it's just too fate...

Through the night a mist descends
Mischievous disguise for a thousand torches
We've been too passive
Our scouts slain or bribes accepted
And their shame won't help us today
Now we are doomed

We plan improvised resistance
A desperate attempt to hold
Women farewell to their child
And join together with daggers in hand

Keepers of the outer walls, hear my advice
Nothing is permanent, or lasts by itself
Dormant frontiers sharpen your senses
Don't rely; don't trust on these still winds

We clash, a drop against a lake
Chopping limbs in our way
Granting death constantly
10. Path Of Shadows (5:48)
A stream of blood flows by breaches among the skin
Life drifts away, departing from this physical host
And it's so hard to resist the call

Letting go, succumb
Dissipate mundane worries
Discard shredded tissues
Forgive this broken soul

Why climb these ghastly stairs?
The height of lightnings
Shall I mourn the end of myself,
Or strive, and sore on each step?

Choosing to strive
To sore on each single step,
Reaching the surface of consciousness
Sure that it won't bring any relief...
...Just the opposite

Letting go, succumb
Dissipate mundane worries
Discard shredded tissues
Forgive this broken soul

Why climb these ghastly stairs?
The height of lightnings
Shall I mourn the end of myself,
Or strive, and sore on each step?

I arrive at. the summit,
entangling sparks of awareness
But soon I longed for the lasting torpor
to claim me once again
A cold reality awaits,
heavy truth to bear or accept
11. Veteran (6:47)
The last to fall, the first to call
Veteran! Veteran!
Founder of cities, protector of lands
Veteran! Veteran!
Ode to longevity, ambassador of survival

Veteran

Compelled by reflections of life
Perceive its equations as a whole
Made a warrior by his own merit
Built on the foundation of limitless audacity!
Passion for discovery, knowledge and control
Repelled infesting turbans,
driven by feverous cross

This is the story of our land!
This is the tale of a veteran!

Deeply lined farsighted eyes
Pierce, through convincing lies
And if he's told to believe in them
He outlines a cynical smile

Born early, a premature child
Keen to war (no baby cries)
Ready to confront the raging vile
In his crusade for independence

Veteran! Veteran!

From mountain peaks to vast shores and seas
He wrote his fate
Led armies towards their native soil

From mountain peaks to vast shores and seas
He wrote his fate
Drove sultans to their native soil

Wake up from your well deserved rest
Concealed for eras
Dire threats have erupted
From below a perverse mantle

Not stirred by weapons of wood and steel
That you know only too well
But by greed, ignorance
And delirious cravings

Veteran

People are demoralized, helpless

Veteran

Raise a flag, lead the way
Summon your unshakable determination
Remember who you are
All the challenges you overcame

Although the flesh may have softened
Your bones will never break
And they'll beat the test of time
And resist until the end!

Veteran fight once more
Resist until the end!

Lead the way, raise a flag
Resist until the end!
