1. Winter Lights (9:12)

The cool night air sings again
Old trees among virgin snow lament
They have tasted their final spring

The winter lights shine again
Each silent luminescence

The winter lights shine again
(In blackness, they do shine)
Each silent luminescence
(A beacon of hope)

Winter lights
Winter luminescence

A lifetime spent yearning
Longing for that yet unseen beauty
Search no more, the heavens illuminate
Now fly skyward, as baying birches bid

Lights shine
Colours dance
Snow falls
2. Ascending Beyond That August Firmament (7:54)
I ascend
I abscond
I soar
I am complete
I am alive
I am home
I ascend

I ascend
I fly
I revive
Revive hope
I greet the clouds
And kiss the sun
I ascend

The midnight rains have passed, only light remains
The lifetime pains are gone, only hope remains
I am the wind, I am the sun
I am the gentle rays of light that pass through the clouds
Among aurorae and beside a gentle cirrus
We are the heralds of the sky
3. Song of the Rin (10:37)
Crimson angels soar above a clear night sky
The moon illuminated by their presence
Stare down and surrender, but gaze up and bathe in hope
The Rin, hearts pure and wings resplendent

They embrace the stars with tearful joy
As they ascend to the heavens
Gliding through a friendly cirrus
Snow white wings and vermilion feathers

The Rin exist not on a perceivable plane
They can be gazed upon only in the realm of dreams
Visit them and be blessed yet cursed
For the inevitable farewell awaits

I wish I could fly there with you
But my own wings were clipped long ago
I may still look up in amazement at my long lost brothers and sisters
But never again will I join them in the sky’s open plains
4. I Must Return (3:26)
5. The Forgotten (5:49)
Through greyest mists they trudge
Faceless abandoned husks
Betrayed and usurped
The long forgotten souls

Let the shattered ones come forth into the light

No warmth they feel, nor voices they hear
A wasted, abyssal existence
Doomed to live in shadows
And watch sunlight float on by
6. When Stars Sing (9:45)
All misery fades away
Beneath a clear night sky, when stars sing
The scent of the forest in its midnight slumber
Cleanses hatred from the soul

Away from clawing talons and prying eyes
Join the stars’ nocturnal symphony
Hear their sepulchral melody
A million pinpricks of light weep together

Oh, hear that stellar dirge
Countless luminous brothers
Yet so utterly alone
A leaf falls, and gracefully descends
As if to say “We know”

Lunar tears
The cosmos mourns
Supernovae surround
In tempestuous farewell
7. Of Mountains and Tranquil Skies (10:23)
The blackness returns
Atop this lonely mountain
I gaze at nothing

A hopeless void
A gaping pit
A grinning skull in the mirror
Under morning light, I am dying

I am… I am dying.
