1. SHADOW OF THE PAST

I call upon you to leave me be, to not awaken the deep dark sea
But your demons keep haunting me and no atonement will set me free
One fine day I’ll make my peace with you
But this day may take ages to dawn

In the night I hear you calling me
In my dreams I can't seem to find the key
Am I cursed or am I redeemed?
Shadow of the past, please release me

We fought the hardest battles and conquered worlds unknown
I never thought one, I’ll face the trials alone
My biggest weakness, my strongest faith
Lies there within the ashes of my line of fate

On wings of destiny towards the end
Through skies of blood & sweat & tears I will descend
Down to the depths of hell, into the dark
Where the shadows dwell, I bear the mark

To reach the point of no return, I will no longer live to yearn
This is the way to go, this is the time
Please forgive me, but my fate is mine

In the night I hear you calling me
In my dreams I can't seem to find the key
Am I cursed or am I redeemed?
Shadow of the past, please release me


2. TO BEAR THE SWORD

When I was little, I always dreamt to carry the blade
And slay the beasts of the wild, not knowing what that would imply
I could not wait for the days to come, how could I know?
The urge to fight was growing and was matched by my power
The goal was clear and bright, but still no challenge was in sight
So I took off to proof myself, how could I know?

It's been a while since these stormy days
I can barely remember those times
But what I’ve seen and the scars I wear
Will forever haunt my mind

To bear the sword on the path of the hero
Is to bear the guilt until the end of time
There is no return, there is no redemption
If you take a soul, you have to pay the price

Through the mountains of fate, I carried my fallen brother
I could not save him, I gave it all and do you know what I saw?
I watched him die, stricken with horror, there is no honor in death

The days went by and I did what I had to and the only thing I was taught
I've been taking names and I became numb and cruel after all
I kneeled before the eldest gods and asked for salvation
Have they left me?

Or were they just like ghosts wandering the worlds as the please?
Or have I been wandering between the planes all along?

My soul found shelter in your warm embrace, is this the answer?
All my longing and all my grief are wiped out
With just one look, with just one touch, I'm rising anew

It's been a while since these stormy days
I can barely remember those times
My wounds will heal and my heart will mend
But those dreams keep me up in the night

To bear the sword on the path of the hero
Is to bear the guilt until the end of time
There is no return, there is no redemption
If you take a soul, you have to pay the price


3. THE CHOSEN ONE

It has been foretold, the prophecies don't ever lie
The balance has been disrupted, fate will soon arise
Darkness still remains throughout the eastern planes
But fear no more, my friend, all torment will come to an end

As the heavens split in two and thunder rumbles through the air
A blazing spark lights up the sky to herald the one and only heir

He's the one, the rising sun
Our world will heal, our fate is sealed

As dragons rule the skies and all hope is gone
Remember the prophecy of the chosen one

He's the one, the rising sun
Our world will heal, our fate is sealed

As the quiet returns and the storms calm down
Behold the hero, we've been waiting for

Have we been deceived? Are the gods playing tricks?
As dragons rule the skies and all hope is gone
Remember the prophecy of the chosen one
