Track Name: Convergence
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Beginning of the End Part II
Welcome to forgotten ground
Where time stands still and a power has been
Bound within this sacred place
The haunting sounds transcending space

Deep within the forest heart
A voice calls out to me
Lost within myself I hear
A cold and solemn plea

Drifting alone in the night
Dreams that are haunting me
Cry in fear
Can I get there in time?

The blood moon starts to glow
The sacred grove
Reflecting in my eyes
Will I make it there alive?

His chilling voice embraces me
This spectre, borne of agony
Whose violent eyes and brow adorn
A body broken, scarred, and torn

The words he crafts and speaks aloud
Cast a spell on me
Entranced by his unnerving tale
Of half divinity he leaves me

Drifting alone in the night
Dreams that are haunting me
Cry in fear
Can I get there in time?

The blood moon starts to glow
The sacred grove
Reflecting in my eyes
Will I make it there alive?

Through the dark I wander on
A broken soul, eternally
Doomed to wander for my sins
Help me now and set me free!

Through the dark I wander on
A broken soul forever more
Doomed to wander for my sins
Help me now and set me free!
Help me now and set me free, yeah!
Track Name: Requiem
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Vale of Shadows
Night sheathed in mystery
until the day pervades the dream
Wolves howl in harmony
with all the beasts that creep around unseen

Seeking their sodden prey
that will not get away
He gazes down from tower high
and howls in his own way

The fate of those who dwell below
to them remains unknown
The strength of a lion flows through his hand
as he perfects his plan

Now wrought with misery and pain
he's cast away and left for dead
A solemn oath he swears:
to take whats theirs
and fill their world with dread

His scorn has seethed for centuries
the time has come for men to bleed
The cursed sword out from the forge
has a hunger he must feed

The fate of those who dwell below
to them remains unknown
The strength of a lion flows through his hand
as he perfects his plan

A storm of death shall cleanse the land
and wash all life away
The gods will cry and say goodbye
A final penance paid

Solo

The fate of those who dwell below
to them remains unknown
The strength of a lion flows through his hand
as he perfects his plan

A storm of death shall cleanse the land
and wash all life away
The gods will cry and say goodbye
A final penance paid
Track Name: Inherit Death
Winter settles on my soul
Orion's blade I've come to know
Fire burning in my heart
I've come to tear you all apart

Slowly now my pain subsides
As I view the world through
Crimson eyes

Darkness plays a painful symphony
For all the world around me
A score of death for ages
As time marches on

I seek revenge on those
That burned my village and slay kinfolk
Moon and stars will guide my way
The fury mounts - nightmare and blade

Slowly now my pain subsides
As I view the world through
Demon eyes

Darkness plays a painful symphony
For all the world around me
A score of death for ages
As time marches on

Nightmare, riding towards my destiny
Holding all the pain inside
Your fear rises up before me
As you prepare to die

Solo

Darkness plays a painful symphony
For all the world around me
A score of death for ages
As time marches on

Nightmare, riding towards my destiny
Holding all the pain inside
Your fear rises up before me
As you prepare to die
Track Name: Season of Sin
Destrian:
My eyes unclear
As has my fate become to me
A sudden fear -
What am I becoming?

Gorthorog:
Coming on like a storm into the fray
The blood is warm as I drink the souls
Of lives I take away

Destrian:
I can't break away

I've lost control
I feel my arm strike down my enemy
Despite remorse I feel in me
This is the season of sin
I can't go back again

Now bathed in blood
As they all fall before me
They scream in fear
They are my enemy

Gorthorog:
Coming on like a storm into the fray
The blood is warm as I drink the souls
Of lives I take away

Destrian:
I can't break away

I've lost control
I feel my arm strike down my enemy
Despite remorse I feel in me
This is the season of sin
I can't go back again

Solo

I've lost control
I feel my arm strike down my enemy
Despite remorse I feel in me
This is the season of sin
I can't go back again
Track Name: Evil Inside
Unleashed, from out from the shadows
It will strike them
And destroy everything that they know

Here, it has hunted
In the darkness
And the demon unveils their demise

Now endowed with this power
That flows through it
Bound to the sword by its soul
It will crush them
In its rage
And execute the demon's design

A storm of death appears
To wash the world of wicked mankind
And claim the souls of the dead
The evil inside will rise
As thunder rolls with dark elation
And tears fall from our eyes

Solo

Nightmare of destruction
The world is now bathing in blood
Flesh in ruin
Bodies broken
It watches as we slowly die

A storm of death appears
To wash the world of wicked mankind
And claim the souls of the dead
The evil inside will rise
As thunder rolls with dark elation
And tears fall from our eyes
---
I am the storm
To wash the world of mankind
The evil inside will rise
As tears fall from their eyes
Track Name: What Would Have Been
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Duel Nature
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Price of Freedom
Lost
I'm drifting endlessly
Reliving dreams of the man
That I used to be
Pain
Helped shape the destiny
Of who I am and the choice
That torments me

Drowning in a sea of sorrow
You reached out to take my hand

I want you to know
I gave into temptation
For a chance to save my soul
And fight for my salvation
I fell into the dark
Down a path I never knew
I paid the price of freedom
And lost my way from you

Hate
Has become reality
Just a pawn in this game
The truth unseen

Now we finally meet again
Can you accept me as I am

I want you to know
I gave into temptation
For a chance to save my soul
And fight for my salvation
I fell into the dark
Down a path I never knew
I paid the price of freedom
And lost my way from you

Oh I lost my way

I'm not alone
You've always been there when I needed you

It's all my fault
I couldn't keep you here with me

I'll carry on
Oh I should have been there through it all

Solo

I want you to know
I gave into temptation
For a chance to save my soul
And fight for my salvation
I fell into the dark
Down a path I never knew
I paid the price of freedom
And lost my way from you
Track Name: Redemption
We stand so close
We cannot help to look beyond
These dreams we share
That tie our fates together

For them we'll fight
There is no price that we won’t pay
We’ve come too far
We can’t get lost along the way

Time will flow relentlessly
Until the day we cease to be
The light of hope shines through our lives
To guide us through the darkest night

Under the sun
Rising up to fight we stand together
Shedding fear
Igniting fires deep inside

Look to the sky
Embrace the breeze to feel alive
To heal your soul
Let the water flow for your redemption

A spark of life
A tiny ember burning bright
To make things right
And turn this darkness into light

Time will flow relentlessly
Until the day we cease to be
The light of hope shines through our lives
To guide us through the darkest night

Under the sun
Rising up to fight we stand together
Shedding fear
Igniting fires deep inside

Look to the sky
Embrace the breeze to feel alive
To heal your soul
Let the water flow for your redemption

Solo

Under the sun
Rising up to fight we stand together
Shedding fear
Igniting fires deep inside

Look to the sky
Embrace the breeze to feel alive
To heal your soul
And let the water flow for your redemption

Let the water flow
Let the water flow
For your redemption
Track Name: Fade From Memory
(Instrumental)
