Track Name: Nightbird song
Long time before
the magic sundials disappeared,
an hour of shadows and ghosts
ran away from the dawn.

Deep as the shallows of the young rivers,
the echo of an ancient song danced
with the wind over the trees,
like wands waved by invisible hands.

Crystal cobwebs
hanged from smiling willows and painted
with dimmed white light
over the water of the fountains.

Hiding from the sun, the nightbird sewed
gardens of symbols and floating structures,
tending invisible bridges of sound
toward the entrance of the bright night.
Track Name: Tear-blind eyes
A world of ice and fire
goes through her blinded eyes.
A face of blood and snow,
dreams of a love drowned by tears.

A knife on one of her hands,
the quill on the other one,
a life of death and pain,
perfect soundtrack for darkest tales.

White flesh of lovers shine,
and looked eternal when the sky
was young, pure and clear,
and tears were made just of joy.

White flesh became cold snow,
the sky was red as blood,
the wife, with soul of ice,
run to the night with tear blind eyes.
Track Name: Between two worlds
There's the glimpse of a new land,
conquered from the distance,
for those who gave their lives and souls
to seek freedom and strength.

I looked for a glimpse of beauty
in a mythical dream,
pure as a fountain of sunlight,
without expectancy.

I found life beyond human things
and bliss in empty lands.
My home is somewhere outside this
and what life brings to me.

I am a man between two worlds,
one is not here and the
other one is a living joke
in a empirical dream.
Track Name: Across the night
Let me walk by your loose temples,
black queen, my lover,
one more time on this night in which
you are the master.

You are the master, and
I try to learn the mystery
about darkness,
about the absence,
the absence of light.

May my fate become
the idol of shadows
that stands outside the scope
of the living.

You are the master, and
I try to learn the mystery
about darkness,
about the absence,
the absence of light.
Track Name: Dead sun
Farewell, ocean
of light and soft beams.
Where will your glorious
touch of life go now?

The universe
will be a cosmic sea of floating graves now.
So pure, so free,
without any god of fire to live for.

By dying you put
soft wings on us
and stars dust glowing
into our eyes.

The universe
will be a cosmic sea of floating graves now.
So pure, so free
without any god of fire to live for.
Track Name: Pitchblack
The lights of the ancient world.
A plan to exchange life for gold
coming from the city of dead light.

They dreamed of a black queen
with a power never seen
and the will to control them all.

The invisible legion
coming through the dead region
of the old mystified prison.

Endless winter without light
with life signals out of sight.
Darkness... for me... is where i shine.
