1. Twilight Dreams (Intro)

2. Sword of Time

Dreaming or fighting,
Or planning your life,
Smiling or crying
You’re just killing time.
But time has no mercy
It’s taking away
All that you have gained,
All your glory and shame.

Grim fire of Time
Just burns to the ash
Your name and your memory,
Your soul and your flesh.
No power, no gold
Can make you forget
About Sword of Time,
That is over your head!

Time is often too fast
And often too slow,
And nobody knows
When it strikes its blow.
Unspoken desires...
Not tasted delights...
Broken illusions
And eternal night.

Some drawn their sorrow
In wine and delights,
Others believe
In their merciful fate
Some look for glory,
Some look for a fight,
Some look for wisdom,
But always too late.

What for all this fighting,
All words, thoughts and lusts,
If Time drowns them in darkness
And turns them to dust?
When your time is over
You just feel deceived.
What will be your estate?
Just ashes you leave!

Kings, heroes and slaves
Once meet sunset of life
And fall down, overtaken
By the Sword of Time.
But who is its master?
And what was his price
For key to eternity
And for Sword of Time?

Will there ever come
The one who can win
Eternal chains of doom
And destiny’s whirls?
One who can fight
Sorrow inside,
Fears of death
And frustrations of life!

Some drawn their sorrow
In wine and delights,
Others believe
In their merciful fate
Some look for glory,
Some look for a fight,
Then (they) all disappear
In black oceans of night.

3. Midwinter Night

Midwinter night... stars shine so bright...
Majestic visions of the woods, -
To men they bring obscure fear and sadness.

As many thousands years ago,
Now Winter starts her masquerade,
Awaking spirits of primordial madness.

Since ancient times in Midwinter Night
Wolves follow call of frozen moonlight
And gather in hordes to sing
Anthems to her chilling might.

Wolves, eldritch children of moonlight
Still celebrate this magic night
As feast of primal freedom
And wild delights.

But humans here are unwanted guests
They’d better stay at their nests
‘ Cause souls of dusk awake this night
In all their majesty and might

As ruthless plague for human race
They seek revenge for all pain and disgrace
Of human deeds, of human reign
So miserable and insane

The feast begins, so wild and strange
It’s time for Nature to revenge!
As stranger enters wood this night,
He is bewitched by primal might
Of wolfish hordes surrounding him.
Their chilling chants awake his fear.
Who would believe that fear can kill,
That nightmare can become so real?

Frost comes to his heart…
His fear is growing…
His blood is freezing fast…
And now it’s hardly flowing!

So listen to the wolfish song
Which is so sorrowful and long.
It is the Nature’s revelation
That brings to human race damnation

“The weakest creature in the world,
With feeble flesh and shallow soul,
Why do you poison your mind
And set on fire your home?

Your reign is your insane illusion,
The way of chaos and confusion.
Now what can you pay for your shameful life?
Stop your madness, awake or die!

You have thrown down a challenge to natural might
Now blinded by snow and put to flight
You feel as your blood is quickly turning to ice

And again will be silent reign of snow
In frozen moonlight pail shadows will grow
And wolves will gather to hail
Holy Night of Revenge.

4. Aeon Noctis

Feel the path of fragrant night
Elemental power, ancient might –
Let the fire pass through your mind

Cast aside your sorrow and fear
Just be free, as new dawn is near
Hear the magic rites

Darkness sweetly caresses you
Only the strong ones will get through
The sorcery veil

Come to the bonfire, strip and dance
Hail to the endless Aeon of night
Unleash your daemons, use their might
It’s not death, it’s Aeon of night
Abandon tears and weak pale light
And welcome dew-scented Aeon of night
Now I see your dark, vague silhouette
Drowning in the Aeon of night

“…I am deprived of my pain
and I shall never become me again.”

Oh, sweet Darkness, I’m your part
Lead me to your truth
All I’ve lived (out) of
Lost importance
I am free
Released at last
With all my hopes far back
I spread my wings
So leave aside
Your tearful weep
And into dark horizons
Fly with me…

5. Reign of Emptiness

Once I awoke and realized
That I am just a ghost
Surrounded by puppets
Bound to their roles

Same things day by day
As they are ruled by someone’s sway
I challenged it but failed
And now I am dethroned and damned

In the oblivion of night
I’m walking twilight path of sadness
Alone and free, I left this world of lie…
Of endless fear, hipocrisy and madness
But I remember those sweet times
Of my majestic reign
And the prophecy that says some day
I shall obtain my throne again.

Now oblivion’s realm of mine
As ruthless time goes by
I’m beholding human life
So abandoned…

I await the blessed time when the sun goes down
I await the night in her magic gown
When spirits of dusk unchain my mind
When the time of my reign will come

Neglected by the world of light
And cast into the outer darkness
I swore to return and bring the reign of dusk

And when I bring the torch of night
And gather warriors to fight
Together we will burn to ash
This realm of hateful lie.

6. Letargy

7. Spells of Solitude

Floating in the depth
I sink, aloof. All I ever wanted
Lies within me…

Scent of the past was my dope,
my salvation
Silence… Broken glass…
My hope… Eternal loneliness…

Oh, I always wanted to see them all writhing in pain –
As they were unworthy of (the) past, I longed for so much
Oh, in my dreams I was rising again and again
So noble and bright, filled with force as a god… god…

The only vital thing in me is memory
Visions of the past flood my sight
What once was real, now shatters, as the faith in me
And sorrow claims me further

No praying heals, no fighting kills this sorrow
Born by Time and putrid human dreams
The castle of my soul was built on sand
And now the licks of waves make it fall…

(Oh, how naïve
I was to think that
I’m not alone
And world is my throne
Oh, no
All-conquering woe
Is gripping my soul
Taking it on
To the vistas unknown)

I thought I would clean the dust off my sword
I fought with this abyss and prayed to the light
Created my shelter, this rational world
But failed to fill the waste inside

Hiding from all that reminds of my might
I was crying for death in the dead of the night
(Now) surrounded by sorrow, sin and decline,
Pressed by this burden I lie, lie, lie…

I have abandoned my search for the sense (self)
My only desire’s to wander on
Embracing the stars in my farewell dance
I sweep to the world so obscure and forlorn
