Track Name: Monk of Khaos
Raise my dagger
Above the altar
Prepare the rituals of the sacred void
Chant the rites
Bound to Khaos
As I bestow myself upon the progenitor

The fallacies of deities
Controlling me
I never trusted any of you
I confront what lies beyond
The forged gods
The essence of exinstance
This life is just a paradox
Against all odds
Coincidental creation
The chemistry is clear to me
As far as I believe
The only god I see is me

Candles lit
To read the verses
They echo through the dark halls
On the ground
Where the dust dwells
This is my purpose now, I descent from soil

Down I go
To escape the dreams of man
Down below
Where the darkness hides me from you

You try to see the world in symmetry
Believe in order as the law
Things left unexplained are miracles
Interventions of divinity

This world's been torn apart by hate and greed
Yet you fail to reason why
you forgot that you're a particle
In this universal turbulence

Let me ponder
Dissociate
I chose the hermit life
To submit to my maker
Isolated
In my abode
I pray for none but my own
Tormented soul

This life is just a paradox
Against all odds
Coincidental creation
The chemistry is clear to me
As far as I believe
The only god I see is me

Created
In the abyss
Where khaos solely dwells
The birth of creation
Track Name: The Eye in Time
You breathe in your life
as I slip away,
will I bend.
I am your rebirth,
I am your decay,
will I break.

I crawl through the maze of existence,
consistently subjected
to the everlasting demand for structure.
I was not designed, nor did I create
I simply am, within the boundaries of Chaos

I'm bound at birth
until the day you die
serving as a counter
for a period where you pass by
shaped by man,
desired to be measurable.

The light breaches over the mountains
Look, it's a brand new day
It gives you a vast perception of time
As it cycles repeatedly
This is the way everything works
In the smallest of galaxies
But these thoughts are too shallow for my taste
In this universe I am a god
I am a god

You breathe in your life
As I slip away
Will I bend
I am your rebirth
I am your decay
Will I break

Encased into a unit
I become this human tool
But I belong
Far beyond humanity
I reach every inch of space
As I'm forever limitless.

I heal all wounds - I bring you death
In this continuum
Patience is mine - Yet I run out
But I will never forget
You count the days - I count the stars
I will never end
The eye in time - The eye in me
I am the entity of time.
Track Name: The Endless Distance
In the darkest of days
We ravished through the haze
The memories did fade
But the pain remained
We lived with the dead
Survived while others bled
The burdens of the past
Parted us at last
An ocean of tears
We cried for many years
We could've had it all
But we tore it all apart

The fire's still alive
But we could never burn the sea
Where shores dissolve to skies
The endless distance kills me

Theses wounds can never heal
Life now seems surreal
Emotions cold as stone
Like a ghost I walk alone
But I am not ashamed
This bear could not be tamed
At least I can be blessed
That I've had the best of you

The fire's still alive
But we could never burn the sea
Where shores dissolve to skies
The endless distance kills me
And now I hear your cries
The endless distance calls me

Remnants of the past
These ruins made to last
I can't resist your call
We could´ve had it all

Everything for us
Everyone on their own
We for one another
We should've had it all
And now I hear your cries
In the endless distance

Now I know
We perished in bliss
Now I know
The suffocating kiss
And I know
We brought out the worst
Now I know
This distance is a curse
Now I know
This life of emptiness
Now I know
Consistent nothingness
And I know
This bearable pain
I´ll never know
Will we ever meet again
I´ll never know
Track Name: Eris
...We gathered for the death of the sun
Killed by what we thought was a friend
But we heard the end of the sinners
Bringer of death show us the light...

A goddess of fear
Fear for the unknown
Darkness binds us all within her realm

Goddess!
Bring us the head of the serpent
Bring us the head of the one
Who betrayed us so deeply

The fortune of the damned is cursed

Shaking vigorously
We see an aura of light
The warm rays of your existence - fading away
We are trapped within
Your dark sensual fabric
Immortal souls that are bound
To suffer for eternity

Vibrations of the unknown
Shake the surface of the moon
Distinct sound of void
Is surely closing in

The fortune of the damned is cursed

Shaking vigorously
We see an aura of light
The warm rays of your existence - fading away
We are trapped within
Your dark sensual fabric
Immortal souls that are bound
To suffer for eternity

The fortune of the damned is cursed

...Remaining in the void lies the birth of chaos
We keep searching and hoping we will find her again
Show us the inner meaning of life
For I know we will triumph all...
