Track Name: Exodus Part 1 The Emerging Ghost
The rain fell suddenly, and the mist rose from the water's sleep
Lost in the woods I seek, a place of rest and harmony
A voice pierced through the sound, of the rain drops covering the ground
A soaring figure appeared and caught my eye by it's beauty

Step after step the voice became melody
Enveloping my mind thoughts lose their clarity

Ah...I've seen this all before in a dream a long time ago
Do my memories poison what I see? Or have I finally met my destiny?

Come to me she said as her hand reached out
Frightened and confused I gather my strength and move on

Down the rabbit hole I've fallen I am trapped in a maze
Suspended time In Limbo Overwhelming conscious haze
Facing eternity

You are the one that I've been calling
Listen and see where we are going

You and I will rise above and see, what lies beyond the crystal gate
You and I will leave this place behind, embracing the path to the other side


Why did you choose me while millions populate the earth?
I'm but a simple man searching for peace in this land
Unknown is my path I've never found my place of rest
Guided by instinct I follow no one and find my own way





Tell me why I should follow you, trust in you
Give me a reason to let go, I need to know
I've been watching for some time in the shade
From now your life will never be the same again

Moon light filled the misty air
Heartbeats echoed as thunder
Cold sweat sliding down my face
We are gone without a trace

Soaring ever higher, we breached the sky
Into the abyss of eternal night
A light emerged from the breath-taking darkness
A beacon of hope in a colorless sea

The sparkle turned flame and within it resides
Another dimension that defies our time
The vast gates opened as stone torn apart
By the restless crushing of a waterfall

I can't hide from this light
As it shines So divine

We spanned with haste the doors
That brought us to our fate
Time seemed to slip away falling in the deep
Unknown, a tunnel that may lead us nowhere

I'm scared
Sucked into the flow of a cosmic wormhole
I finally let go, losing all control

Farewell I said as I thought my time
Had come to an end but my journey had just begun
Track Name: Exodus Part 2 The Crystal Gate
Dreaming of home Feeling alone
Hiding my fear Judgment is near
Falling stars passed us by and disappeared in the black
Lines left still randomly spreading as wild fire

Wishing it all had been with purpose
A blessing could rapidly turn to curse
I had yet to know where
Ignorant
This tunnel was heading for
I felt so helpless, helpless

A grand hall awaits those who've passed the gate
Here a crowd unites made of departed souls

Beyond my sight
Countless they abide

They must face the one that will send them to
A place far and new the cycle of life starts over

As it was in the woods her soft words calmed me

Friend don't you weep
Just stay with me a while
All that you see
Is not for now

The Fall, keep me safe within these
Walls, safe within your arms
I fall, as leaves carried by the wind
I don't know where I'll meet my end



I am among the dead disguised as one of them
My resting place lies ahead, an engulfing grave

Cradle of life, spring of healing waters
Circling time, the passed on revived, divine wisdom follows

The Fall, keep me safe within these
Walls, safe within your arms
I fall, as leaves carried by the wind
I don't know where I'll meet my end

The glass prison is about to break
From this black nightmare I'm about to wake

Sinking in the sands of time, I hold my breath and close my eyes
The tolling of the bells bring fright, from the deepest part of my mind

I unleash fury, power and flames that burn and break this invisible cage

Reality crumbles to the ground
Twisted hands turn up above

Counting down from twelve to one
The clock strikes midnight, my time has come.

Ah, come and take me now
Ah, stay by my side

The dreamsize puzzle ends its wake
And brings the pieces back in place

Rising from the dark a window
Opens wide showing us the way to go
Track Name: Exodus Part 3 The Celestial Eye
Staring into heaven's eye Enlightened by its aura
It contains all the images Of the universe

We touch ground in this virgin land and gaze at the horizon
The sun sheds light over flower heads Illuminating pearl

The eye of inner sight Weeps for the blind transcends my mind

She said the red sky reveals Constellations in cosmic alignment
We are at a vantage point The heart of the mandala

Take this time to meditate Open your spirit to change
A rare surrounding state of grace Fills my cup, under the watchful

Eye of inner sight Weeps for the blind transcends my mind


We are in the hand Of the great Architect
He designs and builds wonders Pyramids and labyrinths

Walls are caving in Mapped by his grand design

From inside these walls The view is narrow and confused
From higher above One discovers supreme order

This imprisonment will be my freedom This haze will become clarity

We become one Divine wisdom
The smallest dot The deepest thought

A seed As the starting point
The source Of all

The center Of creation
New life Hidden purity


Lost in a crater of silence In a sea of tranquility
Rolling on the shores of entropy And, beyond, the intelligence of the stars

A chill Emanating from my
Shadow The side unseen
Numb Paralyzed soul
Desolation mirrored

Celestial Intoxication
Vaporous Fantasies
The circle Without blemish
Draws me from reality

Lord of ecstasy Reigns over ethereal inspiration
Guards the ancient secrets Of death and regeneration



Spiral moving energies vitalize The quintessence of my devoted soul
I burst out of the egg in a primal scene Reborn and spirit renewed

I sit at the olden table Between gods and kings
In the crystalline temple I feast on the finest foods

I breathe now like I've never done before
Inhaling knowledge, my brain is an open door
Metamorphosis complete by total immersion
I've come back from heaven where ancestral heroes dwell

My spirit's released By the shadow of the black river
Incorruptible state of mind Moving towards wholeness

Critical transition As I wear the transformation mask
Continuity in rebirth The goal is the art
Track Name: Mirror Of Revelation
Easy for you to say  suffer
Easy for you to say hide
Easy for you to go to the place
Where no one can hurt you inside

The emptyness grows from my eyes
It tells of my demise
I've lost all faith in me
Dought invades me
Ruin precedes me

Look upon my eyes
I am the mirror that reveals the secrets of the past
The unsaid words and why your suffering will last

Easy for you to show nothing
To pretend to no longer care
Easy for you to remember the past
And regret what is no longer there

Master of time I plead for your guidance
To become someone wise
I bleed
my soul cannot take it any longer
Release me
Caged, deliver me

Look upon my eyes
And gaze at my might
I am the mirror that reveals the secrets of the past
The hidden truths that are buried neath the surface
The image of the divine that falls into deception
The unsaid words and why your suffering will last

This cold dark memory haunts your nights and fills your dreams
Obscure whispers echo from the ground
They tell you listen and you may find out
That I feed on the flame that burns inside
Consuming those dreams and steeling your light
Look at me
Encounter yourself
I reflect what you refuse to see

Yes I understand
You were always there
Surrounding me but I did not care
Flow like a river
Take whatever brings me down so I can carry on

Look upon my eyes
And gaze at my might
I am the mirror that reveals the secrets of the past
The hidden truths that are buried neath the surface
The image of the divine that falls into deception
The unsaid words and why your suffering will last

Over and over it will never end
Twisting and turning around in my head
How deception truth and words left unsaid
come down as one in the mirror's revelation
Track Name: Eclipse
Born from inside the core, an emblem
Of warmth breaths into my dreams
A shadow
The realm made of liquid light still hides
Behind the demon of the sky
Eternal

Cold night, waiting for a sign
Revealed under the moonlight
Frost bite slowly entering
My skin peals as I give in

I am an ancient prophet
I see the cosmic mysteries
They called for me when darkness struck at the midst of the day
The bitter fools, they could not see how they lost their way

Asking why all seemed to fade
They fall to their knees and ask for grace

I seize the opportunity
To lift this curse and by all be seen

Knowing how the stars were made by the one all call wise
My hands reach up to the sky and tremble as mountains fall

As the last beam of light failed to touch the ground
The ancient one spoke in a frightening roar

Defying the skies, defying mankind
His tongue as a lightning bolt
The absence of light, a sign of his will
Hidden death within his eyes
The Master of Time


He spoke to me in simple words as one wise
Come and walk with me until your eyes
Begin to see with clarity the secrets
Of Life turned to tragedy
A lament

The Master’s eyes reach inside and pull me under

I now begin to see
All that I had is lost
Find a reason for the pain
Rise beyond your broken heart

I’m falling down
Time’s running out
My mind’s caving in, gone with total darkness


-----


Dropped in sea of solitude
A desert meadow
I cannot see locked down below
I dove into the unknown

My dying soul echoes beyond this frozen shadow
Drawn to the sound of a voice I heard before
I know where this road goes
A field of sorrow that I've made my own

The earth has swallowed all trace of light
The sky is fading
Beyond this reflective eye
The stars awake

I'm one with the ghost of mirrored failure
A bleak persistence
Deceptive reality shapes this tainted scene
Still life paves this horrific dream


Guide me across the flowing river of transmigration
With the lotus my soul will find the way
Acquaint me with eternity
Invisible realms of intimacy


The earth has swallowed all trace of light
The sky is fading
Beyond this reflective eye
The stars awake

Only seconds of total night
The winds are changing
Promised birth where shadows died
I will drink from the fountain

Drink and embrace this state of ecstasy
A spiral of peace expands your understanding
I'm dwelling in its eye, where energies unite
Preserved from the storm of unbalanced duality


Drink
Embrace
Dwell

Hear
Wake
Rise
To the call


I've heard the sacred call
And from a lifetime of sleep, I've awaken
I've ascended the coiled hall
Into celestial chambers made of ice and stone

I will rise and not be the same
For I am found within the wheel of perpetual change
The eclipse has revealed my inner shades
Will this lifted shadow free my shackled brain?
