Roger Kippen This CD is very well done, both musically and vocally. If asked to pick a favorite track, I couldn't do it, I love them all.

Jonathan Harris Beautifully done !!! Being a fan the music hit the spot for long over due searching for something different musically lately . With I having a wide range of musical taste its not all screaming the lyrics but vocally and musical challenges too differ from all the norm of the rest !! Cool merch is a plus too !!!! loved it !!!

Track Name: The Quest
Ohhhh

Somewhere far beyond this moment
I can taste reward that’s waiting for me
Wandering around, unknowing
Will I fail?
Will I find you broken?

Ohhhh

The quest for peace is harder than I thought
It will take all my energy to traverse this world
Somehow I will journey, pressing forward
Through the doubt
Through the sabotage of onlookers

Ohhhh

See the prize
Set my mind, set my will
See the goal beyond the hill

Now I will not give in
To my weakened mind
Just close your eyes
The end in sight

Take me further now
My flesh covered in
All of these thoughts
“I’m winning.”

Ohhhh

In this quest for honor
I only think of you
Now I’m so much stronger
I only dream of you

I only think of you...

In this quest for honor
I only think of you
Now I’m so much stronger
I only breathe for you

I only think of you
I only dream of you
I only breathe for you


Ohhhh
Track Name: Edge of Your Sword
Every heartbeat is holding on
And every breath I breathe won't let it go

You looked at me and that was all
Below the surface, you can’t see me fall
But you don't see me…

And it feels like a knife in the back of the door
You opened and closed it forevermore
And it feels like tonight is the edge of your sword
All the pages of this book are torn

The scroll is open, but the story’s over
The seal is broken
I’ve lost my composure

You said to me we would be for forever
And now I’ve fallen deeper than ever
But you don’t see me…

And it feels like a knife in the back of the door
You opened and closed it forevermore
And it feels like tonight is the edge of your sword
All the pages of this book are torn
Track Name: Lion Arises
Bitter wind, blind eyes
Forsaken in the sands of time
Never alone in this
Epoch of eternity

Foes living inside my mind
Your weapons are fortified
No escape no return to the sea

A tidal wave won’t undo this
Final day

And I won’t be afraid
I will lay my head down and sleep
I will feel morning sun on my face
Even though I’m surrounded
Enveloped on every side
I’m at peace as the lion arises tonight

Words disappear when
It burns into fear again
They are cloaked and they are chained in
Robes of blackened roses

A blanket of snow will fall
The entrance to the door dissolved
Pillars decayed and destiny unfolds

A violent haze won’t undo this
Final age

And I won’t be afraid
I will lay my head down and sleep
I will feel morning sun on my face
Even though I’m surrounded
Enveloped on every side
I’m at peace as the lion arises
Tonight...

And I won’t be afraid
I will lay my head down and sleep
I will feel morning sun on my face
Even though I’m surrounded
Enveloped on every side
I’m at peace as the lion arises
Tonight...

Tonight...
Track Name: Heir
In this strange land, voices, they call
Running down the elusive immortal

"And I will meet you by the shore
I'll wait 'till even-fall…”
“And I will give you all my dreams
I'll give you all my songs..."

Winter creature
White as snow
Legendary
Heir to the throne

Footsteps and dreams, illusion of the mind
No one can find a trace of her in all of time

"So I will meet you by the shore
I'll wait 'till even-fall…”
“And I will give you all my dreams
I'll give you all my songs…”

Winter creature
White as snow
Legendary
Heir to the throne

Sacred creature
Untamed and alone
Legendary
Heir to the throne
Track Name: Ruins of Illusion
Quiet falls upon the glade
As ancient stones call upon my name
No one in this landscape dream
Still, my beating heart is beckoning
Nothing but shadows running from me

Come follow me through iron gates
To the meadow of solitude
Enter now a wild, wild woodland
Take for yourself refuge in
The ruins of illusion

Creatures great and small hear me breathe
As sun’s shade fades into the deep
Follow the old path that leads me to
All that remains of my love for you
All that remains of my love for you

Come follow me through iron gates
To the meadows of solitude
Enter now a wild, wild woodland
Take for yourself refuge in
The ruins of illusion

Come follow me through iron gates
Long ago ancient grove, so secluded
Oh enter here, walk through the garden
Seek for yourself refuge in
The ruins of illusion
Track Name: Labyrinth
Crystal tears of the sea
A vision washing over me
Where the sun meets sand
Here is hope in the palm of your hand

Rebirth, Come forth
From earth, Rebirth


Once upon a time I was so lost inside this labyrinth
Let me dream on
Within these walls both saint and sinner will fall
The chains which bind us all


Eyes awakening
Fire in our minds, in our hearts
Breaking through these walls
Beckoning as a true north star

Rebirth, Come forth
From earth, Rebirth

Once upon a time I was so lost inside this labyrinth
Let me dream on
Within these walls both saint and sinner will fall
The chains which bind us all

Once upon a time I was so lost inside this labyrinth
Let me dream on
Within these walls both saint and sinner will fall
The chains which bind us all

Voices trapped in abandoned castles, this madness
Read the ancient scrolls
Calling out to the heavens
Amidst a shattering palace
Release my soul
Track Name: Abyss
Release me from this cage
Where games are played inside my mind in haste
Emancipate this place
Where reality is make believe in time

Illumination awaits
Like sunlight shining through the sage in the night
And we have wandered away
A silence beckoning, a truth and a lie

Battles in the distance and
I know now where I stand
I want to follow forever
Into the abyss we’ve become

And as the sun sets on your time
(On your time)
Ancient illusions fade into a twilight
And as the runic pages burn
(The pages burn)
The chains will break and dreams begin to align

Battles in the distance and
I know now where I stand
I want to follow forever
Into the abyss of love

And all the candles light before us
And I’ll travel to the edge of the earth
I’ll follow wherever
Into the abyss we’ve become
Track Name: Oblivion (Between Two Worlds)
I stand between two worlds
There is no middle ground for me
The tears that fall have wanted it all
But there is no return for me
One look is all it took
And I fall apart

I keep making peace with the past
Then the present won’t let me
Thought the memories were buried so deep
Envy takes over, that should be me

One look is all it took
And I fall apart
One day I won’t feel this way
But I’m drowning…

Now I’ll run away, I won’t stay in this shadow
Lived my life with no regret, still I can’t let go
Into the realm, into all that’s forsaken
All that’s left undone
Oblivion

I stand between two worlds
There is no middle ground for me
The tears that fall have wanted it all
But there is no return for me

One look is all it took
And I fall apart
One day I won’t feel this way
But I’m drowning…

Now I’ll run away, I won’t stay in this shadow
Lived my life with no regret, still I can’t let go
Into the realm, into all that’s forsaken
All that’s left undone
Oblivion

Now I’ll run away, I won’t stay in this castle
Lived my life with no regret, still I can’t let go
Into the realm, into all that’s forsaken
All that’s left undone,
Oblivion

I’ll run away
I lived my life
Into the realm
Oblivion
Track Name: Ghost Upon a Throne
I cannot find my life
(Absent of you)
I resist all of my mind
(A poison truth)
But I am alone
(You tell me)
With your shadow

Here I am going around
In your circle once again
You’re a like a ghost upon a throne

But you won’t own me

I know you can hear me
(I can hear you)
I feel you can see me thinking
(A poison truth)
But I am alone
(You tell me)
With your shadow

Here I am going around
In your circle once again
You’re a like a ghost upon a throne

But you won’t own me

I believe I’m throwing off these chains
I can see you’d never want this way
And my bleeding heart never betrayed
Now this shadowed past will be forgotten

Here I am going around
In your circle once again
You’re a like a ghost upon a throne
Here I am going around
In your circle once again
You’re a like a ghost upon a throne

But you won’t own me
Track Name: The Water is Wide
The water is wide 'n I can't cross o'er,
'n neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row,
My love and I

For love is gentle and love is kind
And love is sweet when first it's new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like mornin' dew

There is a ship and it sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not how I sink or swim

The water is wide 'n I can't cross o’er
'n neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row,
My love and I

And both shall row,
My love and I
