Track Name: Demobilization
The smokescreen of war
Slowly fading
The outcome of war
Casualties taken

As the haze disappears
The vision is getting cleared
Of dust and all the ash
As the sun sets again and haunts away the night
Bringing back peace to the lands of war for those once lost

Soldiers traumatized
Ministers upset
Warzone, land of madness
Parliaments on a deathbed

As the reign ceases
And a crisis is born
A heritage of the past
From the parliaments of deceit

But the war carries on for the one and only cause
Corrupted by greed and power
To be or serve the only lord
Once there will be a better day
When we honor the lost

As the haze disappears
The vision is getting cleared
Of dust and all the ash
As the sun sets again and haunts away the night
Bringing back peace to the lands of war for those once lost

Soldiers traumatized
Ministers upset
Warzone, land of madness
Parliaments on a deathbed
Track Name: Prestigious Icarus
From mentors we learn how to walk how to breathe
Climbing so high to rise above all mountains
To pass the clouds no nimbus too high
To the sun we’re travelling

With smothering wings we die

Prestigious Icarus
The higher you fly the harder you fall
Molten wax slowly dripping
As you’re collapsing into the earth

Collapsing into the earth
Life is flashing in front of your eyes
The final chapter of your life

Create a downfall for yourself
For what you tried to establish
Was unreachable in the end

From mentors we learn to think more than twice
To watch ourselves from falling into self created lies

Unable to survive the atmosphere by solar flares ablaze
Wings are gone and only ashes remain
Temperatures rise
Vaporized
Time elapsed
Fragile we are
Wings are gone and only ashes remain

Our wings ablaze
Buried in earth we stay

Prestigious Icarus
The higher you fly the harder you fall
Molten wax slowly dripping
As you’re collapsing into the earth

The final chapter of your life
Cause we reached for too high
Too high
Track Name: Inherit The Earth
Instrumental
Track Name: Flashflood
So harsh we can't pretend
That nothing happened in the end
Trying to wake up from this nightmare
But there is no awakening from reality
Progression from possibility to actuality
The ruins beneath the surface of the sea
Lucifer has cracked the dying family trees

Gasping for air while we all drown in the stream
Waves come crashing
Breaking sticks and stones
Populations overthrown
Flood has spread
Screaming out from the top of our lungs but everyone is
Everyone is gone

Death from above, beside and below
The sky cracks open
The empire of woe
Stream of life flushing by
Turning the brightest day into the darkest night

The ruins beneath the surface of the sea
Lucifer has cracked the dying family trees

The coming of the storm
No signs of warning
No sirens heard
Flood has spread no bird sings anymore
Violently
Death's knocking upon our door
Knocking upon our door

Cities swept away
Streets are in decay
Societies in disarray
Cities swept away
Streets are in decay
Societies in disarray
in disarray
Disarray
In disarray

Falling from a grey sky
To crush upon the soil
Travelling miles and miles from up high
Winds causing to roil



Stirred en confused
Dazzled by the crash
We float among the stream
Rushing water
Life is scattered
Track Name: Collapse
Vanity, Fertility
The stagnation of recreation
Standstill of birth’s hourglass
Sands stop flowing
Sunlight slowly fade

Iced time, Frozen progression
Submission by weight
Weight of existence
Frozen waters, movement repression
Vibrations of time
Time for resistance

Moving
We have to make a change
Stagnating
Preloading our ways
Progressing to make a difference

Earth turns cold
Covered in ice
No sunlight reaching the surface
Only cold and darkness within
The burning flame inside
We have to move on

Like time step by step
Slowly forming energy to activate movement
Like life piece by piece
Molecules start to move
Progression is born
We are reborn
Reborn
We are reborn
Reborn
Reborn
Reborn
