1. AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS

(All had begun, when led by fear, right at the end of the world)

It's been not so long I accidently sold
My former frame of reference to the cold
Thinking back, remembering, my tale seems so unreal
I'm closed up but the time has come to reveal

You'll never hear it twice 'cause
Once I had seen
The sheen that filled the sky
Soon I'd die
The mounts drew the bounds
And I climbed one step too high
Soon I'd die

(High in the sky, here at the end of the world)

Anxious, also ignorant, my investigative mind
Had led me there and led me to be so blind
Haunted are the mountains, I plead for your restraint
Or hope for men's survival will be faint

You'll never hear it twice 'cause
Once I had seen
The sheen that filled the sky
Soon I'd die
The mounts drew the bounds
And I climbed one step too high
Soon I'd die

The cold that had enwrapped my heart is bound to freeze my eyes
The truth that seemed on our side had covered all with lies
Take off my hands take off my feet take off my ears rip out my tongue
But don't hurt my mind don't hurt my sense don't hurt my intellectual powers

What is frozen you don't feel, what hurts is what you lose
But at this moment I gave up, the ice had blown my fuse

Made out of cold, made out of fear
God's will attracts, God's will is here
Yeah!

... the lavas that restlessly roll
Their sulphurous currents down Yaanek
In the ultimate climes of the pole
That groan as they roll down Mount Yaanek
In the realms of the boreal pole...

All my days are nightmares and memories haunt my brain
My former mind of knowledge has gone insane
All my days are nightmares and memories haunt my brain
My former mind of knowledge has gone insane

(All had begun, when led by fear, right at the end of the world)


2. FIVE CRYSTALS

Evil roams the land of my dreams
Onslaught is the onset of coma
Ancients chase the crystals of black
Magic is the secret I keep

(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)

Searching in the land of my dreams
Gazing in the eyes of my dying
Conciousness I have to grasp the last stone
Falling means I will never awake

(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)

Slowly I drown in my sleep
Hoping my brain will awake
My last crystal will fall in their hands
Leaving me to die alone in my sleep

Ride!

I hear hooves pounding
I see his mask, it's black!

I try escaping but I can't move
I'm doomed

Blood!
Kill!
Sword!
Flesh!
Die!

Searching in the land of my dreams
Gazing in the eyes of my dying
Conciousness I have to grasp the last stone
Falling means I will never awake

(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)
(Sun will rise for you again now)


3. THE DARK SIDE

Suffer with me
Or you will see the end of time
The figure you are dreaming of
The shapes of those are mine
(Come in my mind)
Coming with the tides
Are roaring waves of doom
If you listen to my cries then you won't miss the prophecies (Darkness we'll find)
I tell to everyone of you (Soon)
(Cry for me)
(Cry for us)

(I see you're frail)
Never have I seen
My inner self so black
Every twig I try to grab
Is so fearful it will crack
My lungs are screaming because my heart
Is too shy to explain
Never will I find the rest (You're born to fail)
Until I'm lost and gone and my
Blood poors down the drain

Cry for me and for the world (Cry for me)
Where I look it's black I find (Cry for us)
Cry for me I have unfurled (Cry for me)
I have found (Cry for us)
The dark side of my mind

From beneath the earth I rumble and I bait
I've resigned myself without resistance to my fate
(I drag you down)
Now I'm dead and what I did was useless to you all
The only thing I still maintain is making you even worse than me (You're down with me)
And dragging you down within my fall

Cry for me and for the world (Cry for me)
Where I look it's black I find (Cry for us)
Cry for me I have unfurled (Cry for me)
I have found the dark side of my mind (Cry for us)


4. DECEIVER

Your spirit turns black
As symphaty of life declines
Only selfish ways reign
In your sickened mind
Your tears have dried
And floods of deceit are unleashed
Upon all humanity

(Heed me from you, deciever)
(Heed me from you, deciever, make believer)

You shattered my dreams in two
All trust lost in dust
I weep and in agony I bleed
Your honesty repressed by hypocrisy
Mental thief, turning my life into disease

(Heed me from you, deciever)
(Heed me from you, deciever, make believer)

No paradise, in hell you'll see
Internally I'm screaming
My fear of dying's dying
As compassion decays
Tell right from wrong
Words nothing more than vicious lies, betrayal
Too late, I'm pissed off with the violent rage
We call him traitor
Bastard! Bastard! Bastard! Bastard!
Bastard! Bastard! Bastard! Bastard!

Hate and fear united
Won't turn into tranquility
No sympathy for God or Christ
Reality? It's all fantasy
Life's wasting away
Forever caressing the bitterness
I'm roaming forever through my anger

(Heed me from you, deciever)
(Heed me from you, deciever, make believer)


5. CLIFFS OF MOHER

Once there was a time when no man
Ever touched the earth
All that has been built was balanced
And so was man's birth

Come with me
And you will see
You've been put here for a reason
Use your powers well
Keep respect for all cause on my
Surface you will dwell

Come with me
And you will see

When morning comes
We find our way in life
Her powers
Make the trees look green
The sun will laugh
To flowers in the sand
I came through another night...

Your disgrace for me has brought up
Shame on my behalf
What we've seen so far feels like you're
Tearing up my scars
On my recall
I've shown you all
You careless fools
I make the rules

When morning comes (hate me)
We find our way in life (hate us)
Her powers make the trees look green (this could make)
The sun will laugh to flowers in the sand (some day I)
I came through another night... (die)

The sun will laugh to flowers in the sand (some day I)
I came through another night... (die)

Another night...

Night


6. BY TIME ALONE

I prepared you with all I know
As I taught to you I watched you grow
Changes in the heart and in soul
No one has ever got the strength for that goal
You see...

Time will tell it's tale
(And so we realize)
To us all
The part that we play
(Our story will be told)
Will be told by time alone

Those who see the shades understand (understand)
They're the ones who's fear won't get out of hand (out of hand)
When one relies too much on his hope (on his hope)
He won't search the area beyond his scope (beyond his scope)
You know

Time will tell it's tale
(And so we realize)
To us all
The part that we play
(Our story will be told)
Will be told by time alone

Follow the line
Which one is mine?
Where?
Where?
Where?

I've seen things clear
No I won't fear

Time sleeps
Hate's near
Time I hold here
Time I
Time I
Know

You know...

Time will tell it's tale
(And so we realize)
To us all
The part that we play
(Our story will be told)
Will be told by time alone
Tale
(And so we realize)
To us all
The part that we play
(Our story will be told)
Will be told by time alone

Ancient rhymes


8. ODYSSEY

It was pulled away by force
When I began this quest
They took away the spark
My future, life of bliss

(Journey of my major decline)
(Minor of joy tears to dry)

Face of blood they left me
Near death but full of hate
To leave without a trace
And take away my mate

(Journey of my major decline)
(Minor of joy tears to dry)

(I seem to fly)
(Drifting through space and time)
(Flying to my destiny)
(I can't seem to find)

Anyone who's in my way
Will know the price to pay
I'm numb but don't count me out
My odyssey will end one day

(Journey of my major decline)
(Minor of joy tears to dry)

The quest has made me tough
Entombed in solitude
I reached my goals and thus
A better man saved you

It was a conspiracy!


9. REQUIEM

Rex tremendae maiestatis
Qui salvandos salvas gratis
Salve me fons pietatis
Amen

The trumpet scattering it's awful sound
Across the graves of all lands
Summons all before the throne
Death and nature shall be stunned

When mankind arises
To render acount before the judge
The written book shall be brought
In which all is contained

From the depths of hell
And the bottomless pit
Deliver us from the jaws of the lion
Lets hell engulfs them

Confutatis maledictis
Flammis acribus addictis
Voca me cum benedictis
Amen
Oro supplex et acclinis
Cor contritum quasi cinis
Gere curam mei finis
Amen
Requiem

Rex tremendae maiestatis
Qui salvandos salvas gratis
Salve me fons pietatis
Amen


10. LEAFLESS

In my roots underground
Bits of grief still remain
Lingering memories
Replacing joy by pain
In my roots underneath
My silent cries grind and burn
Shaping my own defeat
To the point of no return

(Midnight you're here)
(Tremble by fear)

You are leaving me to cope with my scars
Ignoring me for what? I don't know
Former joy burnt down and decayed
All that might have been turned to hate
Dew washed away by the rain
Acid bitterness eats me
It burns a hole in my crust
Seelings of our trust
Won't grow no more

(Midnight you're here)
(Tremble by fear)
(So far and left out here)

What did I do wrong to lose your trust?
The tree that's me was shook
You turned your back and left

(Leafless you left me)
(As leaves fell down to earth)

Naked I became when you left
Lonely is the wood of my trunc
Where is the whirl of your thoughts
Was the reason anyway?
Seasons nature's cure for my shame
In time my branches will grow again
Spring, winter's foe has arrived
Blooming I once did... and will do again...

(Midnight you're here)
(Tremble by fear)
(So far and left out here)

What did I do wrong to lose your trust?
The tree that's me was shook
You turned your back and left
Can't you see I was afraid of you
And of that higher tree
That took the sun away

It all happened
Much too fast for me
And what you didn't know:
Your tears were acid rain browning my green


11. DELIVERANCE

[Dedicated to Opa van der Aa]

Remembering the day we took each other's hand
But in our minds we knew we would lose a friend
Out here we think, we gaze and look above
Every star for everyone we've loved

(I don't hear and I don't see but)
(As my guardian he is here with me...)

We are what you'll lose
Deliverance is what you'll gain
Nothing else to choose
But deliverance from the pain

My feelings are mixed, living apart together
But in my sleep I know he's with me forever
This time it's him who's says that it's OK
Helping me to get over the previous day

(I don't hear and I don't see but)
(As my guardian he is here with me...)

We are what you'll lose
Deliverance is what you'll gain
Nothing else to choose
But deliverance from the pain

Lacrimosa, dies illa

(In heaven reunion will take place)
(So take my hand have no fear)

Lacrimosa, dies illa

(Through my laughts and through my tears)
(I'm overwhelmed by memories)
(Not in one day nor in years)
(We will forget you've disappeared)


BONUS. THE CRUMBLING OF MY DENIAL

It's the crumbling of my denial

What are you, where do you come from?
Your appearance hits me like a bomb
The words I say seem to stammer my mind
All you do makes my spirit wind

Screaming out, see my rage
Feel my flesh, thickened by my age
Hear the tone of my call
It's the crumbling of my denial

From your head to your feet it's all fine
And your eyes shiver down my spine
Make my day, make my life worthwhile
You must teach me again how to smile

How to cry, how to feel what's inside
And how to know that I'm dignified
I want love but I do want pain
Come to me 'cause I am insane

Screaming out, see my rage
Feel my flesh, thickened by my age
Hear the tone of my call
The crumbling of my denial

You will be mine!

I take the step now
We know what to do
You understand my call
It's the crumbling of my denial

No one sees how we play this game
Slowly we fan each other's flame
We want love and we sooth our pain
We feel fine 'cause we are insane

Screaming out, see my rage
Feel my flesh, thickened by my age
Hear the tone of my call
It's the crumbling of my denial
Screaming out, see my rage
Feel my flesh, thickened by my age
Hear the tone of my call
The crumbling of my denial
