Micromegas 04:41
Old times, old minds The silent water invites me In the night, I discover A figure near the quay I ran away A sailing boat Descending from the sky Beyond the grave Hides a wonder to unveil I ran away I ran, I ran The ancient ghosts I used to see Have ceased to show themselves My burning scars have gone away And faded in the light A glowing land of fantasy Reveals its open gate And as the shore disappears The future waits for me

All I see is my own reflection In the looking glass, there’s nothing around Searching for directions in the fog Hiding all the treasures, yet to be unveiled Deceived by illusions, my dreams have Faded in the void like aberrations Thousands of exits lie before me Which one can I take, as I am Caught in the maze of my mind At the crossroads of our lives I only want to survive Long is the way to follow in our quest to roam free Out of the dark shines a light Spreading a glare from the mouth Illuminate my soul Whisper my fate, as I’m Caught in the maze of my mind At the crossroads of our lives I only want to survive Long is the way to follow in our quest to roam... Caught in the maze of my mind At the crossroads of our lives I only want to survive Long is the way to follow in our quest to roam free In the desert you are here Heaven keeps a place for me In the desert you are here Heaven keeps a place for me

Affliction, destruction Gnawing, aching, wicked violence Temptation, rebellion Burning vengeance spreads in my veins I can’t read into his eyes A culprit or a prey ? I carry the weight of the ruling Driving me insane Someone’s voice is coming from the sky Guiding and warning Someone’s calling from the other side « To crown the grandeur of a man Forgiving is unmissable » I hear all these words (May your heart be open) Hard is the acceptance (Find the answer) Within myself My brother, a slayer I don’t know anymore Please lend me (the truth) Your vision (will lead) To understand (us there) I can’t read into his eyes A culprit or a prey ? I carry the weight of the ruling Driving me insane Someone’s voice is coming from the sky Guiding and warning Someone’s calling from the other side « To crown the grandeur of a man Forgiving is unmissable »
4.
Dancing crowds abound A painting filled with joy Watchers shouting out Spreading love around Rising to the stars The skies open their arms Hiding all my flaws A statue made of clay Innocent dying soul Injured by these ghouls Time will heal us all Until we face the dawn End the circle Ease the sorrow Free the evil All alone Tomorrow's a new day To heal and forgive

I lie I lie here I lie (your eyes can see what you want, see what you want) I lie here (I lie here) Sucked up from the silence Blurry sight comes clear The vigour in my body Makes me want to stand I’m alive I’m alive here I’m alive (your eyes can see what you want, see what you want) I’m alive here (I'm alive here) Paralysing passivity Devastating the inner will Gone, laid to rest Deep down the spiral lies a wounded creature (Caught inside a) Gigantic labyrinth gulping its victims (Their flesh and their bones) Imprisoned maggots doomed to wander in apathy Facing the mirror of their own inadequacy Meanwhile the demons keep haunting their slumber Alarmed, I watch them from afar Wisdom has come to bring a glow I once also waded through the mire Drowsing again, under the warmth of the sun Before the guides came to Propagate the revelation The sky will open For a new moon Paralysing passivity Devastating the inner will Gone, gone Laid to rest Oh rain, Wash these lonely minds To free their soul Untie their, bonds And let them go The time has come Breathe in the light Reach for the dream Follow the line Conceived for me

Dead, forgotten, a hazy memory Secret soul self-buried right behind a specious smile A silly clone, hiding his nature for approval Lost in torment, I dreamt that day would come And I could tell you that I fought my fate I made amends And I could show you that I affirmed my will In vain And I will never abuse your trust again My words are clear And I will lead you until your heart reveals Its gleam To find yourself I can free your mind Remorse hurting Weakness evaporates Honour my oath I stopped the rival that I once invented And I could tell you that I fought my fate I made amends And I could show you that I affirmed my will In vain And I will never abuse your trust again My words are clear And I will lead you until your heart reveals Its gleam To find yourself I can free your mind Erased the barriers and the walls I ran into before I defeated my inner foe Despite my labour, vile opponents tried to ruin my vow Yet I gave my love to you all And I could tell you that I fought my fate I made amends And I could show you that I affirmed my will In vain And I could tell you that I fought my fate I made amends And I could show you that I affirmed my will In vain And I will never abuse your trust again My words are clear And I will lead you until your heart reveals Its gleam To find yourself I can free your mind

Exit Initia 21:31
I – Excipit Omen I see strangers near the door Their eyes can not hide their pain A breeze (a breeze) from the universe My heart is weary now I hear the call behind the wall I’ll find my way home Fall into the light A gleaming land of magic I rise above the clouds Let them feed my visions And guide me through the night Left aside my sorrow I’ll keep you by my side Far beyond the grave where I belong Abandon my own kin A haunting fear to leave them all From the bud to the height A new role for me to play Afar appears the tunnel They told me about I hear the call behind the wall I’ll find my way home Fall into the light A gleaming land of magic I rise above the clouds Let them feed my visions And guide me through the night Left aside my sorrow I’ll keep you by my side Far beyond the grave where I belong II – Guidance Fade the echoes of sombre years Buried the guilt I wouldn't see I once was the captive of my own game Making the tears of the damned souls run Steeped in fiction, the embryo grew Until the evil mark slowly declined The waning confusion has led up to bloom Now I feel you I’ll lead you I abought my sins For my eternal glory Follow my steps Along this inner journey Mouth of the sky Oh shine a light around me Eyes open wide Find peace and serenity I abought my sins For my eternal glory Follow my steps Along this inner journey III – Horus’ Crown Fall into the light A gleaming land of magic I rise above the clouds Let them feed my visions Guide me through the night Left aside my sorrow I’ll keep you by my side Far beyond the grave where I be… Far beyond the grave where I be… Far beyond the grave where I belong IV – Apogee Of A King Into the land of escape I'm rising to relieve the pain And by the lake of my sleep Appears a figure, on the shore I'm dreaming The moon is revealing it is me I'm dreaming It's coming to take me away I'm dreaming The boat is ascending, it's ending This world of misery Fades from my memory This life of purity Will last an eternity Drowned in the mire of my mind (You were caught in a maze) I found my way (The only exit lies in here) I owe my daughters and my sons Cause the circle (will) always turn Turn, forever and ever
