Track Name: These Walls (Frozen in Time)
O, we begin this tale upon a starved earth
which centuries have proved of worth
Defend this land with grand honor and pride
we shan't let it fall to their hands

Men with forked tongues leer towards our home
They offer riches, we spill their blood!
Beyond these walls they shall never set foot
They seek control, we show them death

These walls will never fall
This tale will never die
This land will always be ours
These walls will cease to crumble
Frozen in time
Sealed in the past

The empire is destined to fall
The serpent will devour its tail
We will be consumed
They will see the end

Beasts and steel under their domain
Forces they cannot contain
Confusion reigns the air as fear strikes their horde
Our brave home may rest...

For now...

Set us free!

These walls will never fall
This tale will never die
This land will always be ours
These walls will cease to crumble
Frozen in time
Sealed in the past

These walls will never fall
This tale will never die
This land will always be ours
These walls will cease to crumble
Frozen in time
Sealed in eternity
Track Name: A Gentle Touch Upon Ravaged Wounds
In this profound solitude
Faint whispers coat the scenery
Like soft exhales from a fading storm

An afterlife in this realm
Entwined with my parallel existence
The selfless spirit who brings me here
A gentle touch upon ravaged wounds

Sold my soul for a moment here
To spend an eternity longing to remain
Driven to madness by loss
A gentle touch upon ravaged wounds

Sing to me with your gentle tears...
Track Name: In the Wake of War
From this barren landscape our story will be told
In the wake of war it is recalled
As we showered the foliage with an empire's blood
We will tear them from their thrones

From a distance we see vast legions
In formation they stand
We call to arms the tribes
Let the War of Fire commence

Headstrong against the tyrants
May our wills proves strong
Headstrong against an empire
May our names live on

And for millennia our struggle will live on
Beyond the codex, beyond the stars
Track Name: Viriato
Saviors have come and gone
Leaders have risen to fall
Empires have crumbled to stone
Wars have spilled false blood

So receive this gift from above
And become one with the gods

Wielding metal
Rebel king of the tribes
Gripping the tyrants by their throats

Wielding metal
A hope for liberty
Purge these legions from our land

Viriato, the rebel rises to power
Defender of tribes, bearer of the flame
One with war, will as strong as stone
Viriato, destroyer of empires
Track Name: Oestriminis
Towards mournful coasts of unfathomable reach
Banished by the venerable ones
Serpentine hordes
Of sanguine lust and savage being

Where the orb of fire journeys
To inhale the mist of the angry sea
Drown his sorrows as a drunkard drowns himself to a new life

Oestriminis, the end of the earth
Oestriminis, displaced from home

Inebriated by ritual
Charmed by the serpent
To worship them still
Self-mutilation

To revel in the wake of a tormented god
Drown themselves
Bathe themselves in tears and blood

Of sanguine lust and savage being
Track Name: This Beautiful Death
A field of serenity
Shadowless void
Embrace this fading moment
Grasp this last breath

Hope has failed me
I surrender my will

Free yourself from this heavy burden
Light shines upon your untamed path
Serenading you to let go
Weightless, journey to a new world

O, this journey will be our last
Never forget me [I will be here with you]
O, this voyage will change us
Never forget, memories forever in stone

Entwined with Nature, perfect harmony
Freedom from the grip of existence
Finally, you are free
For once, I am free

O, this journey will be our last
Never forget me [I will be here with you]
O, this voyage will change us
Never forget this beautiful death
O, this journey will be our last
Never forget me, I bid you farewell
Track Name: The Invader
Beneath the masquerade of a clean spirit lies a desperate corpse
Ailing for attention, he beckons blindly for help

He spews venom as his cries go unheard
The poison invades his blood, slowly lingering towards a fragile end
His system will fail, his corpse will burn with the sun

Beneath the ashes of the carrion left behind by the chosen ones
A delusional mind balanced upon the brittle ropes of sanity
Intoxicated by the scent of blood
Breathing the fowl stench of decay

Cry for the defining moment in the end
...as you die again and again
Scream for the final moments, my friend
...as you die again and again and again

The poison invades his blood, slowly lingering towards a fragile end
His system will fail, his corpse will burn with the sun

Beneath the masquerade of a soiled spirit lay a slab of flesh and bone
Rotted, cold, defeated, broken
A mind once strong, now dead
Left as an exemplary feast for the dirt
Track Name: The Seafaerers' Legend
What lies beyond the horizon?
Fathers speak of a land of mist and rain
Green, pure, untouched by man
Its legend embarks through the winds

From atop the tower I can lay eyes upon the distant rock
As it rests in Gaia's splendor
It curiously beckons our people
We shall voyage to uncover new adventure

Hail the sea before your eyes
For it is your home for moons beyond

Into the tempest we sail
The ruthless waves await us

Into the tempest we sail
With our courage in the stars
We risk only life, for legend cradles our souls

These tales tell of men who dared trek these vast seas
Unmoved by currents, unmoved by storms
Into the tempest we sail
To a land that lies beyond

Our names will be lost in time
Our bodies will be lost at sea
Our spirits command the waves
We will guide those who dare cross
Opening passages of discovery across the earth and sea

These tales tell of men who dared trek these vast seas
Unmoved by currents, unmoved by storms
Into the tempest we sail
To a land that lies beyond
