1. The Purple Sky (6:06)
A letter in the bottle
Drifted on and wobbled
A safe port was not to be reached
Nor a golden beach

Majestic waves
They pulled away
The chance of being surveyed
The message in the bottle stayed
With its silent prayer

When I close my eyes at night
In my mind
Nothing is changed
The comfortable frame
Alive and aflame

When I close my eyes at dawn
Like a dream
Everything is changed
I walk around in an open range

Over the purple sky
Unafraid
And with pride
I see her
Over the waterfalls
Over the ancient walls
I hear her in my calls
To me

Selfless and devoted
All she touched just floated
But unknown to folks around
She's already drowned

Words unsaid
A hidden scar
How could it go so far
How could I know my precious friend
That this would be the end

When I close my eyes at night
In my mind
Nothing is changed
The comfortable frame
Alive and aflame

When I close my eyes at dawn
Like a dream
Everything is changed
I walk around in an open range
2. Syns sang (5:01)
En fager kvinne
Ved hallens tunge port står
Lyser som en gudinne
Med blondt langt hår

One day we'll all stand in front of her and get
The judgement given by her scale
The goddess of rights
And the judge of the wrong
This is syn's song

Free us
From the burden we bear
From the forthcoming fear
Incept the trial
It's in your hand
End this nightmare

Med sverdet hevet hun sier
At rett skal være rett
Og skal du få komme gjennom porten
Så må du være bedt

One day we'll all stand in front of her and get
The judgement given by her scale
The goddess of rights
And the judge of the wrong
This is syn's song
3. Vem kan segla (3:47)
Vem kan segla forutan vind?
Vem kan ro utan åror?
Vem kan skiljas från vennen sin
Utan att falla tårar?

Jag jan segla forutan vind.
Jag kan ro utan åror.
Men ej skiljas från vannen min.
Utan att falla tårar.
4. Ikje glem meg (4:22)
Sommerluktå brer seg øve land, hav og strand
Me ungt blod står me samen om et enda bedre land
For fred me kjempe
Og at håpet ska forbli
Ikje bare tanker
Men stemmene e'fri

Forelskelse i luftå og trer som skape mot
Sveve øve øyå som e kjærlighetens rot
Med ett kulden komme
Og regnet med sin bør
Som om den brakte budskap om fortvilelse og død

I skjære eg ligge naken og blør
I vannet eg skimte et mørkerodt slør
Skrittene komme og redselen flomme
Inni meg ordene jome og jome:
Hørre du meg
Ser du meg

Pulsen den banke iherdig og fort
Kan ikje fatta ka som e'gjort
Verkane bein springe og en uro
Ligge som ei tågå øve fjell øve skog
Hørre du meg
Ser u meg

Igjen og igjen
Eg der ditt ansikt for meg

Hørre du meg
Ser u meg

Igjen og igjen
Eg der ditt ansikt for meg
5. Herr Mannelig (9:05)
Bittida en morgon innan solen upprann,
Innan fåglarna började sjunga.
Bergatrollet friade till fager ungersven,
Hon hade en falskeliger tunga.

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig, trolofven I mig.
För det jag bjuder så gärna,
I kunnen väl svara endast ja eller nej
Om I viljen eller ej.

Eder vill jag gifva de qvarnarna tolf,
som stå mellan Tillö och Ternö.
Stenarna de äro af rödaste gull,
Och hjulen silfverbeslagna.

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig, trolofven I mig.
För det jag bjuder så gärna,
I kunnen väl svara endast ja eller nej
Om I viljen eller ej.

Eder vill jag gifva ett förgyllande svärd
Som klingar utaf femton guldringar.
Och strida huru I strida vill,
stridsplatsen skolen I väl vinna.

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig, trolofven I mig.
För det jag bjuder så gärna,
I kunnen väl svara endast ja eller nej
Om I viljen eller ej.

Sådana gåfvor jag toge väl emot,
om du vore en kristelig qvinna.
Men nu så är du det värsta bergatroll,
af Neckens och djävulens stämma.

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig, trolofven I mig.
För det jag bjuder så gärna,
I kunnen väl svara endast ja eller nej
Om I viljen eller ej.

Bergatrollet ut på dörren sprang,
hon rister och jämrar sig svåra.
Hade jag fått den fager ungersven,
Så hade jag mistat min plåga.

Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig, trolofven I mig.
För det jag bjuder så gärna,
I kunnen väl svara endast ja eller nej
Om I viljen eller ej.
6. The Aftermath (5:18)
The precious sight
A treasure as one of a kind
But if the stars are right
Day will soon be night

The ocean so clear
Hitting powerful sheer
And now
All the waves replaced by waste
On our shoulders it weighs
In denial the matter is faced

Trapped in the mud
Overflown by the flood
'Cause now
All ripped apart by a shadow of rage
Acts out of hate
All done by man's bad faith

The day will come
Where the blind running herd
Hit the goal line so lost
In total illusion
Of how we should live
Our eyes covered with frost
Where are you?
The waiting is fatal
Where are you?
It's fading away

Thousands of oaks
Spoke of ancient folks
And now
All the faces vanished in smoke
The roots left behind
As proof of the malicious mankind

The day will come
Where the blind running herd
Hit the goal line so lost
In total illusion
Of how we should live
Our eyes covered with frost
Where are you?
The waiting is fatal
Where are you?
It's fading away

The Dawn is alight
But on the horizon
No answers in sight
But if the stars are right
Day will soon be night
7. The Unveiled Truth (3:58)
Looking back on
All the silent years that should have
Been like the best of my life
You saw potential
And was frightened that the world
Could recognise the real me

All the envy inside
You spread all kind of Lies
And you pushed my voice down
Chained me up
I felt so worthless
Return it all to you
Will never sing a tone for you

Looking bright on
All the years to come that might be like
The best time of my life
The journey's started
Eager for the world to meet
Finally the real me

All the envy inside
You spread all kind of Lies
And you pushed my voice down
Chained me up
I felt so worthless
Return it all to you
Will never sing a tone for you

So many plans
So many dreams
I almost gave up all
But now I'm back where I belong
8. Evaluation of Time (6:44)
Instrumental
9. Forsaken (6:05)
So solitary
Just arid
Not a single human in sight

A waste barren land
Just sand
Not a single seedling in sight

The right to live just vanished for good
As the speeches of a brotherhood
Vague memories of joy
Of mellowing girls and boys

In my heart and
In my soul
It hollers out
Why oh why
Have we destroyed such beauty
Oh why oh why
Have we forsaken ourselves

A heatwave occurs
Just a blur
Not a single rain drop in sight

With brilliant brains we were blessed
The thoughts of ourselves as the best
Turned out so wrong
A fallacy all along

In my heart and
In my soul
It hollers out
Why oh why
Have we destroyed such beauty
Oh why oh why
Have we forsaken ourselves

Why have we forsaken ourselves

In my heart and
In my soul
It hollers out
Why oh why
Have we destroyed such beauty
Oh why oh why
Have we forsaken ourselves

Why have we forsaken ourselves
10. Eitrdropar (bonus track) (2:58)
I nord stod der på nidarvollen
Sindres ættsal gjord av gull

Ein annan stod i okolne
Jotnars ølsal som heiter brime

Eitrdråpar
Dråper av gift
Eitrdråper
Drypp inn om ljoren

Ho såg ein sal
Stå fjernt frå sola
Der på nåstrand
Mot nord slår døra
Dråpar av gift drypp inn om ljoren
Fletta er huset av hoggormsryggar
