1. Grand Materia

So it came to me and i saw beyond
the dark reflection of myself in me

I closed my eyes and i flew away
and i inhaled eternal life

Behind the deepest of my soul
beyond the world you live in
i found a miracle i caught the shadowstone

With the knowledge in my hand
more alive than ever
with the seven astral planes within i will live forever

So far away but somewhere inside me
an angel slumbers wrapped in shadows

Grand materia
catch the shadow of your soul

I became alone
my gift was both a blessing and a curse

Because i couldn't tell, didn't dare to speak,
no one to trust
i kept my knowledge for myself

Alone but with a presence inside me
an angel is awake in the shadows

Grand materia
tame the shadow of your soul

There is no end in my life no final destination
both blessed and doomed to walk the earth,
as an immortal transmutation

Something dark is always close- trying to control me
i think it wants the shadow back,
through the barriers inside me

Alone but with a presence inside me
a demon is awake in the shadows

Grand materia




2. My Funeral Is Calling

Heartbeats pounding almost sounding
under my skin
in disguise i'm about to begin
to stage my plan my decease
am i insane
qualms of remorse what a sinister deed

Betrayal they're close to reveal what i am
brothers i thought that i had
greed takes possession of man
my funeral is calling

Dead man poor man you'll die twice
to cover my life
decomposed in a chamber of mine
my death is done soon i'm free
vanished and gone
a dead man lives a living man dies

Betrayal they're close to reveal what i am
brothers i thought that i had
greed takes possession of man
my funeral is calling

Inquisition, church, disciples
i fooled you all
veiled and secured is the secret, my soul
o'er that grave they will pray
for a dead man unknown
i will live on through time and beyond

Betrayal they're close to reveal what i am
brothers i thought that i had
greed takes possession of man
my funeral is calling




3. Only Endless Time Remains

Sometime i miss the life before
when there was no forever more
it's bittersweet to live forever

All the friends around me died
so did my emotions and cries
it took me a long, long time to learn to live my life

in the mists of my memories
and on the shores of the centuries
i do sometimes find a piece of harmony

but i recall pain as well
tremendous sorrow and regrets unveiled
it's bittersweet to live and never die

i have seen it all and even more
i have lived through countless wars
but love torments me more than anything i know

in the corridors of time
behind the doors to my deepest mind
i will always keep the ones i loved alive

in the mists of my memories
and on the shores of the centuries
i do sometimes find a piece of harmony

but i recall pain as well
tremendous sorrow and regrets unveiled
it's bittersweet to live and never die

only endless time remains

in the corridors of time
behind the deepest of my mind
well, only endless time remains




4. Hollow

Something's here, it's everywhere
it's sad and cold, it's in the air

hollow voices, mumbling talk
limping steps, when someone walks

staring eyes, from a sallow face
in the mirror, in the haze

a bell that chimes, from behind
the walls or doors, or from the other side

hollow there's the hollow sound of a bell
hollow hollow sound of hell

i want you no harm, just make a friend
in this lonely endless end

i sense your fear, i feel it well
i hear it too, the sound of a bell

hollow there's the hollow sound of a bell
hollow hollow sound of hell
hollow there's the hollow sound of a bell
hollow hollow sound of hell

you deny me, when i'm there
as if i was just, mist and air

i will reach you with my chime
i'm the ringer of infinite time

shadows move, haunting me
sucking all my energy

why don't you come, when i call
you never speak, no never at all

i summon you, with my chime
i want your soul it is mine

the more i crave, the more you die
the more i sense that i'm alive

hollow there's the hollow sound of a bell
hollow hollow sound of hell




5. Edge of Mind

Life deep within all lies a
shadow a soul
to find and to hold it is to hear
how insanity roars

something comes with the
knowledge of all
that is deeper and darker and
see through my soul

face to face i crumble before
the being of all

the edge
at the edge of all life and beyond
the edge at the end of my mind

time is wrapped all around me
(and) choking my thoughts
(and) eyes staring (gazing) right through me
for secrets i hold

trying to find
the shadow inside me -
find it and take it
while i'm petrified

face to face i crumble before
the being of all

the edge
at the edge of all life and beyond
the edge at the end of my mind




6. On the Other Side

If i open up my mind
and receive the other side
where the day reflects the night
in frenetic timeless time
and knowledge is a well
there in heaven there in hell
where every thought and fantasy
is reality

on the other side in the immutable
eternity
on the other side in the impalpable
eternally

there i face my soul
angelical unbound
(a) shadow of the free
forever meant to be
and the presence that i feel
from my kindred soul
strengths my life my energy
through eternity

on the other side in the immutable
eternity
on the other side in the impalpable
eternally

there i've found the power
the secret source
the grand materia
the shadowstone my soul

(there i drink the knowledge)
(there i find the truth)

but it can be hard to stand
the menacing and sad
that is beyond my grasp
like heartbeats in the vast
that entity that's haunting me
searching for my soul
it's everywhere unreachable
not tangible

on the other side in the immutable
eternity
on the other side in the impalpable
eternally




7. Sangreal (double vinyl bonus track)

Every truth and lie wear a sign
just open your mind
every search needs wide open eyes
cause blind you can not find

of all metaphors in all those tales
there's the quest for the grail
you can't find the chalice
but the blood that were betrayed

sangreal explore the shadows of christ

i see creation in all
it's in the wheel of time
two parts combined to spread
new life what's more divine

all the gospels about the truth
of the christ and his life
were ignored and twisted so
it never could be revived

one way
one truth
it's imbedded in life

just find a way to see through the lies
explore the shadows of christ

sangreal explore the shadows of christ

a heretic emperor
converted to the church
just to gain his power over
the empire he gave birth

all the ancient beliefs
and all the symbols and rites
were declared as evil,
an obscure path away from the light

sangreal explore the shadows of christ




8. I Roam

Wherever i walk no shadow will fall
i hold it inside me, the angel my soul
this dark opacity-following entity fly
inside my domains, prisoned in mind

i roam in my non- existing shadow
i roam in a world that goes round and round

can the eyes of a man understand what they see
when they see the loss of the shadow of me
for your eyes non existing, invisible, missing and gone
but your brain's apprehension will tell that it's there in the sun (on the lee side of the sun)

i roam in my non- existing shadow
i roam in a world that goes round and round
i roam with my invisible shadow
i roam in my non- existing shadow i roam

you walk this earth with a dark reflection a curse
that has to wait until the end of your life to get free and transcend(ed)
but not the shadow of me no, not the shadow of me.

i roam in my non- existing shadow
i roam in a world that goes round and round
i roam with my invisible shadow
i roam in my non- existing shadow i roam




9. Emotional Sanctuary

I have found a little hideaway
it's a place not so far away
like a nest in my mind
where i rest and sense no time

there i am as much as i can
as an old and crumbled man
and i hide from the pain and sorrow
that i fear

behind this barrier i can
just deny all the thoughts
no cause and action (effect/consequence) there at all

an emotional sanctuary
time has gone too far to turn around
the pain i feel
will fade away
'cause life goes on
in a colder way
an emotional sanctuary

like a spider in a web of dreams
i control my sanctuary
and the walls that i've built
are my lost memories

cause i live in a (cause i'm living in a)world of madness
and the only place to heal
is the place too close for man to find
and feel

behind this barrier i can
just deny all the thoughts
no cause and action (effect/consequence) there at all

an emotional sanctuary
time has gone too far to turn around
the pain i feel
will fade away
cause life goes on
in a colder way
an emotional sanctuary




10. Angels Deceit

Black eyed strangers trapped in time
oh, bitter angels caught behind
the thought given only to mankind
legions of the seraphim
the fallen army stained with sin
patiently they're waiting for the end
the fall of time

from where fallen angels rule
the hatred never seems to fade
their malicious dark deception
closing in

from where fallen angels rule
the hatred never seems to fade
their malicious dark deception
soon fulfilled

giving coded secrets to
some chosen of the race of man
so that grand materia can be found
eagerly they're waiting for the
monumental moment when they fly
once again free and unbound
they are trapped in time

from where fallen angels rule
the hatred never seems to fade
their malicious dark deception
closing in

from where fallen angels rule
the hatred never seems to fade
their malicious dark deception
soon fulfilled

they are trapped in time
in terrestrial skies
fallen (angels), darkened (angels),
blinded (angels poisoned) by their hate

from where fallen angels rule
the hatred never seems to fade
their malicious dark deception
closing in




11. The Operation of the Sun

As below, so above;
and as above, so below
with this knowledge you may work
miracles (i know)

and all things emanate,
from the one who is the cause (fate)
all things are born (after their kind)
from this one

the sun is the father, its mother is the moon

earth the guardian and its nurse
it's the father of all things
eternal will is contained (within)

this is the truth, with out falsehood,
certain and most true

i possess the three
parts of the philosophy
of the whole world
the operation of the sun

this is what i know
the consummated sum
of the work -
the operation of the sun

(thou shalt) separate the earth from fire
the subtle from the dense (bla bla)
gently with, unremitting care (and wisdom)

it ascends from earth to heaven
and again descends to earth
and receives the strength of the
superior (and the) inferior

this is the truth, without falsehood,
certain and most true

i possess the three
parts of the philosophy
of the whole world
the operation of the sun

this is what i know
the consummated sum
of the work -
the operation of the sun

by means of this one thing
all the glory of the world
shall be yours
and all obscurity (shall) flee from you

it is power of all power
it will dispel all ignorance
by this one, the world was created

this is the truth, without falsehood,
certain and most true

i possess the three
parts of the philosophy
of the whole world
the operation of the sun

there's nothing more to say (nothing more to say about)
the consummated sum
of the work -
the operation of the sun




12. Blind

Here i am
seven centuries away
from the discovery
that led this way
my eyes
can testify to miracles
you wont believe the things i've seen
in my immortal life

i see
the truth behind every lie
and i sense who shall live
and who shall die
the knowledge of the blind humanity
where insanity controls the world i weep

open up your eyes
knowing just as i
you are blind
blind
you are blind

The room bulges and every atom is pulsating.
The hollow sound of a wind chime rings pleasantly
in the distance. My fear is gone and a feeling of
calm is spreading through my body

Your chime
is calling
i'm coming
i'm yours (you are mine)
oh, time

nothing
matters to me anymore
i am harvested by the scythe of time
i'm not the virus that i where before
time will heal all wounds i'm sure

its ascending, descending course
strikes with out remorse
finally it finds
the scythe of time hits blind
time hits (strikes) blind




13. My Task Is Done (Reconcile With Time)

Knowledge
beyond the knowledge i had
a fool was i for sure
still my thoughts belong to my mind
but slowly they are fading
away to become
a part of timeless time

i wonder who i am and why
where am i and why am i alive
it's time to rest now
rest and reconcile with time

silence i'm drifting away with the currents
of time to become
absorbed by timeless time
and there by the shores the beginning of all
my shadow is waiting for me to be whole
i'm the essence of my soul

i wonder who i am and why
where am i and why am i alive
it's time to rest now
rest and reconcile with time
it's time to rest now
my task is done

i wonder who i am and why
where am i and why am i alive
i thought that i was doomed to die
but here i am to face a blood red sky
