1.
I've seen through the Eye of God, Such things, prodigious remains, Radiant signs from our future All alone For years I’ve followed Their call Here I came Where truth is hidden in the dark Just like a dream… A wonderful piece lighting up Like a-diamond-set stellar crown Now we are drifting to the well, Pulled by its crushing gravity Endless fall Borders get lost into the far gas clouds The artefact has trapped our fate Guide of this ruined vessel I cursed my stolen childhood All alone Holding your life in my hands Here I came Their voice's never been so loud Our lives may not be in vain
2.
Havoc 04:39
Feel Their sway interfere in your soul Let yourself broaden your consciousness Embrace death What happens to the stars ? Pale, so deadly pale, pulsing with a grim light Drained of energy, they dim into the coldness Cold, so deadly cold, going their own way Those black entities ravage our whole universe How much time before the lights go out ?
3.
Oh, what is that glow ? Lights appear… Worlds Perfect machinery carried through time and space You handled suns, played with matter Forging in stellar fire the final masterpiece You’ve built a gate to this strange place Oh... Twisting flows of particles, It opens a secret path woven through the emptiness We’d flee this mortal feast, Escape from darkening, and there begin again
4.
Progeny 04:11
Something there is moving, In this sky approaching A shining sphere so unreal Arcane silhouettes against light Shatter all your beliefs Watch Us, whom do you see ? I feel the youth inside me Recognise You my offspring Follow yoru life instinct Accept to give Us birth
5.
One more star fails, devoured from within Stellar vampires carry out their work Turning our homes into a barren world A black veil spreading Night The time erased We lose our flames, our origins Doomed fate Tell us does our sun has already died ? Lost sense Tell us does our sun has already died ? One more star fails, devoured from within In this fight for life, we’ll give up our place The black veil spreading
6.
You got me this far To find truth and cry Then turn my eyes away We were kings on our thrones far too sure of ourselves Proclaiming our power on each world that we reached Blind to the signs around that something was changing, committing sin of pride, until we met You here O the moment of truth when we finally see All these stars, our beacons, weakening and die This space seems so quiet Bathed in a soft warming light See the majestic nebula Worlds pulsing in perfect harmony Can you feel the breath of those clouds ? All There is alive, so alive Worlds pulsing in perfect harmony
7.
Farewell 06:44
A last look at the sky Thus ends human adventure in universe And life as we knew it dies All’s left to those insensible beings Abandon, fly away Now that we're leaving this dark Eden Then we realize how ours it was O stars, goodbye Through the artefact we've seen a glimpse of our new future Giving you birth, lay down foundations of Your blooming To build the time loop and save us all A last look at the sky My Child, need your hand to take the plunge
