The Septentrional Tower Lyrics

1. The Septentrional Tower (9:23)
We came from far away
Beyond the death and cold
‘You forgot what you were fighting for’

Sheltered by our lost shadow
Is where we spent those years
‘One by one, shattering your dreams’

Sleeping in the comforting coldness
Of the darkest winter days
‘Emotions were frozen inside’

Wounded by the verse
Of countless frozen nights
‘Could your inner flame warm your heart’


Once I was sustained by this empire
Of coldness, of stillness, of silence
My feet were taking root through the stones and ice

-Chorus part 1-

Now rise… Head for the tower
Where skies are closer
Now rise… Head for the tower
To release the fire

We inherited
This lonely part of the earth
‘Under the spell of the Bleeding Moon’

Awaiting the harvest with the wish
To gather the fruits from
‘The scattered seeds on a lunar soil’

The meaning of hope we forgot
Blinded by the dark
‘Lost are all horizons’

Wounded by the verse
Of countless frozen nights
‘Could your inner flame warm your heart’

-Repeat bridge-

-Repeat chorus part 1-

‘The Enigma of the Sphinx appears only
At the watershed of one’s destiny
Leave your past behind and you will find
The arcanes of wisdom, lost since the night of time’

-Chorus part 2-

When the solstice of winter comes
The Tower rises to the Zenith Sun
It opens the way to the Gate of Gods
And one day the guiding star will shine on
Invading light, a new cycle has just begun

- The Sphinx -
‘Remember a time,
In the Garden of Forsaken Souls
Under the Bleeding Moon,
You would remain motionless
The deformed reflections
You projected onto yourself
Left you petrified, without emotion, without soul
You shall resolve the enigma of your life and find your way
Or in the depths of the abyss, I will cast you away’

I belong to the sky and the stars are my eyes Feeling now the power of the Crystalline Light
From my inner flame, I shall be reborn
Heading for the tower to return where I belong

Listen to the voice that echoes from the sun
In the streams of eternity you shall hear my song

-Repeat chorus part 2-
