Track Name: Make the Iguana
MAKE THE IGUANA

Asking for
answers that won’t be given
‘Why do we live?’
‘How we came here?’

Pick some water and
put it into a
big, strange glass thing, add a fire under
First you have to set
the atmosphere:
add two electrodes then
get ready for the show

People chattin’ without
knowin’ what they’re saying
‘Where is the truth?’
‘Why is so hard to find?’

Make the iguana!

‘Why is life so
hard to understand?’
‘Is the answer
hidden in science?’
Track Name: Through the Gates of Time
THROUGH THE GATES OF TIME

We drink from the source of time
And wait for our secret destination
Nothing is lost along the wheel of fate
Why we have to grow only to fade away after finding ourselves?
Be once again!
A new life rises from the deep mist of unconscious
The age of men is eternity
The endless inconstancy
Impulse of the divine spirit

New aims new directions
Following the eternal circle
Smokes of purple ether
Blowing old dreams of the future
Life and death are snakes
That draw the spiral of the ages
A seed is a flower
Every man’s a plan to achieve
Through the gates of time
We may see a new beginning
At the fall of ages
Nothing will be lost forever
Why we have to grow only to fade away after finding ourselves?
Be once again!
The reasons of the past carry the patterns
Of all our possible futures
Through the gates of time
Death dances with life
We are still what we were
we are already what we’ll be
We see the sun go down
We know it will come back to shine
Along the threads of night
Our arms are all raised up to the sky
Death collects our fears
The lights of heaven dazzle and darken
Life puts in a new shape
What in Chaos had been dissolved
Through the gates of time
We may see a new beginning
At the fall of ages
Nothing will be lost forever
Why we have to grow only to fade away after finding ourselves?
Be once again!
The reasons of the past carry the patterns
Of all our possible futures
Through the gates of time
death dances with life
We are still what we were
we are already what we’ll be
Through the gates of time
Death dances with life
Through the gates of time
Death dances with life
There’s no beginning, there’s no end, everything lives
(why do we have to grow only to fade away after finding ourselves? Be once again!)
Track Name: Over the Edge
OVER THE EDGE

Below the ice, above the snow
From Ynys Pryden we departed
To search Divinity and to know
Who we were when all was started;

Night and day now are confused
In smokes and fate’s fogs,
The Drakkar fights in the sea and proceeded
For the deep dens of the Lords’s dogs.

We are men, we are Gods,
We don’t need to serve the Lord:
Over the Edge we’ll go again,
Over the Edge we’ll live again.

But now is strange, we feel a presence
In the seas and someone’s fear
That what we do, it isn’t clear
And our left has a baleful influence.

But over the Edge we are free and alone
By God that wants our life and blood,
Free from this small and pathetic world
That needs someone to dictate law.

We are men, we are Gods,
we don’t need to serve the Lords:
over the Edge we’ll go again,
over the Edge we’ll live again.

And now we see the edge at last,
We will know who created the past
And this fateful future that we have,
Will not weak our heart.

With our swords we’ll brave the power
With our shields we’ll execute the liars,
With our hearts we’ll live after gate
With our souls we’ll create our fate.

We are men, we are Gods,
we don’t need to serve the Lord:
over the Edge we’ll go again,
over the Edge we’ll live again.
Track Name: Horizon
HORIZON

Endless depths surround you,
Waiting for the souls
Promised by the ocean,
To the envious God of Seas.

Shipwrecking bodies carry the secret,
The new world will be forgotten.
Shipwrecking bodies carry the secret,
The new world will be forgotten.
Dead eyes watch for the last time
The horizon in the North.

Empty spaces,
fulfilled of light,
Remind you a childhood dream

Now the seashore is there,
The anchors are set,
The forgotten land awaits,
And the skies are open for you.

Walking in lost fields
You see bright stars
In the dark skies
They shine.

Halls of eternity hails you,
For you blood is now glorious,
For your name will last forever,
‘til the stars will beat,
They’ll beat your name
‘til the stars will beat your name.
Track Name: Starway's End
STARWAY'S END

End is near but I’m not scared
From darkness new light will rise.

I know that between stars hand of angels they hide

Their tears will mark my path
And on soft wings I’ll land there,

Where nothing is created, nothing is lost

Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the soul.

Protect me, astral strength
In your hand you will carry

The deadly destiny of the world

And with your eyes you’ve seen
The story of wandering spirits

Like me roaming to reach the starway’s end.

Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the
Ancient black hole will tear flesh away to open the eyes of the soul.

End is near but I’m not scared
From darkness new light will rise.
Track Name: Prophecy
PROPHECY

Now
We stand
Silent
Waiting for the
Moment
Disclosure
fulfillment

Of the prophecy
Time has come to face the end
Through her eyes, through black holes...

Stars
Collapsing
A path
Of dark suns
The future
Has died
The past
Will disappear...

Time has come to face the end
Through her eyes, through black holes...

The Time has come to face the end
Through her eyes, through black holes...

to face the end
Through her eyes, through black holes...
Track Name: La Vergine e il Lupo
LA VERGINE E IL LUPO

Giungo dalle steppe mie care
Stanotte, del buio col favore.
Com’ella, dall’arido mio cuore
Nessuna sì mi fu dato amare

Così meditando andava il lupo
Guidato dal chiaro della luna
E come s’appressava alla padrona
L’animo via via si fea men cupo


Mio diletto, la tua bocca sa di sangue
Ed è questo un mesto tratto tuo avito
Ma un barlume di purezza pur sopito
Nel tuo petto gramo e fiero giace e langue


Madama, tal è la mia natura
Io certo non scelsi d’esser fiera
E supplice, in questa notte nera
Asilo chiedo appo la tua verzura

E dimmi, orsù, che posso fare,
S’il mio cuor davvero può esser puro?
Dimmi se può il mio animo oscuro
Alfin divenir degno del tuo amore.


Mio diletto, qui riposa il petto stanco:
Non temere per la tua triste sorte
Ma rifuggi la paura della morte,
Giaci finalmente qui al mio fianco.
Track Name: Wind of Truth
WIND OF TRUTH

The glory of hunt turns
Into revenge
When the slaughter shows us
The village's end

Everything's destroyed

Our thirst of blood will follow
These sacred wind of truth
And in the end
We'll free our hearts from hell

Wind of truth

Following ancient holy words
That wind's offering us,
We'll go to search the cowards
That ransacked our home

They will die

\
Track Name: Wind of Quest
WIND OF QUEST

So here we are.
Following the path, the path of our quest.
The path that leads us from our wreck
To our revenge.

There’s nothing behind us
And we still not know what we’ll find further.
What does await us.

Mesmerizing is the dusk
The sun is now sinking in a bloody sea.
We’re neglecting the last flashes of light
Marching toward the forest;
Toward the incoming dark of the night.

Some of us are crying
There’s no honor to keep now safe
But everyone still march
Now in this gloomy forest.

Ghosts are the trees
In the shade of this moonless night.

Together we walk
In the shade of this moonless night.

Hungry are the wolves
In the shade of this moonless night.

Tired we are
In the shade of this moonless night.

But there’s no time to rest
In the shade of this moonless night.

Stars will guide our quest
In the shade of this moonless night.

The forest’s edge is now behind
After the gloom of this moonless night.

A new sun rises up from the hill
After the gloom of this moonless night.
Track Name: Wind of Revenge
WIND OF REVENGE

We grasp our axes
Get ready for the battle
Victory will be ours

Finally our revenge
Will be attained and
Our thirst of blood satiated
In this butchery dance
We will stain our hands
With the venom of your dirty hearts

Cowards that destroyed
The village now are here
In front of us and they will die

The slaughter is beginning
Torn bodies fall to the ground
In lakes of blood
Victory is ours and
the wind of revenge
blows for us
victory is ours

We’re laughing and dancing
On your dead bodies
Oh, there will be no more redemption
Taint air with your souls
Now we overtake the sky
Now we are rising lights

Finally our revenge
Is finished and
Our thirst of blood satiated
Track Name: Wind of Wisdom
WIND OF WISDOM

Comin’ out victoriously
From the slaughter
We offer our enemy
The divine feast
When new heroes
Toast to the future
Peace anymore disturbed
By deadly enemy


Dawn catches us in the fog, our veins
Still warm for victory and Fear storms us
A new terrible curse has attacked us
Our destroyed houses still smoke
Our houses still smoke

Sun, get up on their minds!
And then feeling, gather us!
Relief and amazement
Converge in an omen of death!

Someone looks for his bride
Not knowing that
Her blood is different
But the cries are the same

Who knows, now, keeps silent
With sadness and shame
A man still drags fool,
Gripping a bloodless child

A known figure, ‘come out of the shade!’
His sad face in the awareness
The old man reveals his truth, to who
Had not heard his words

This ruinous certainty slips in our minds
Enemy blood has not brought back to life our sons

After laughs the tears of drunks
Who has conscience keeps silent
Legionary of this new wisdom, who’s standing
Drags his companion along the road to home...

Who has conscience keeps silent
Legionary of this new wisdom, who’s standing
Drags his companion along the road to home
Towards a village, towards his destiny
