Track Name: Consumed
Consumed

Lyrics by: Yosef Bartov

Verse 1:
Proud to pay the price for living
Bleeding in my eyes, not feeling my legs
No one cares about you now
The silence is the solution

Bridge:
Screaming without voice
Watching without eyes
Reflections in my mind
Teach me how to lie

Chorus:
What if this is a dream?
What if I'm just living beyond this life?
It might be worth to take a close look at infinity

Verse 2:
You may think you own the end
Take another way to calm down
Sadness in your eyes trying to explain
Where are you getting into?

Bridge:
Screaming without voice
Watching without eyes
Reflections in my mind
Teach me how to lie

Chorus
What if this is a dream?
What if I'm just living beyond this life?
It might be worth to take a close look at infinity

Faith
Consumed
In a darkness
Labyrinth

Chorus again
Track Name: Haunting Verity
Haunting verity

Lyrics by Ksenia Glonty

"...A thought awoke. It exhausted and crushed down his ingenuous straightforward mind. He tossed about seeking a way out, a solution to his predicament…"
(M. A. Sholokhov, "And Quiet Flows the Don".)

Verse 1:
Cold shining stars
Hang low over the steppe
Home is so far…
Trying to make the right step
Exhausted soul flounces in search for verity
I close my eyes, hoping to find clarity
Rebellious spirit burns in me

Chorus1:
How many more tears will be shad?
Will this pathway ever end?
But in this never ending night
You'll always be my guiding light!

Verse2:
Futile battles,
A chain of restless days
And boiling metal
Takes hundreds lives away
Harassing questions haunt my thoughts, torture my mind
Leaving behind
Wrinkles on my face
By feverish doubts I'm embraced

Chorus2:
Did our desires lead us astray?
To enemies we now obey!
In bloody crossroads of the war
You're in my heart, forevermore!

Repeating chorus 2 & chorus 1
Track Name: Surreal Nightmare
Surreal Nightmare

Lyrics by Ksenia Glonty

Verse 1:
You're going up while coming down
Trying to wake up you turn around
Space folding like a house of cards
You're screaming so loud
But there's no sound

Chorus:
You shatter
Into little pieces of your fears
You're scattered
Like a beam of light… and disappear
Bridge:
An eternal darkness spread in all dimensions
It is so glaringly bright- it makes you blink

Verse 2:
Open your eyes, lump in the throat
Everything seems normal, but it's not
Making a step outside the bed
You're looking down
But there's no ground

Chorus:
Losing your mind,
Being swallowed by the light
Falling so high
Through an endless white

Bridge:
Milky tentacles twined around your body
They pull you to the depth of reality collapsed

Lying on the bottom of your consciousness
I dissolve in it…. I've betrayed myself
Save me, I can't resist anymore!
Track Name: Moments of Hope
Moments of Hope

Lyrics by Michael Timoshko

Verse 1:
There is a light behind that door…
Keeping their secrets
The walls are hard as stone
Pale moon will show the way
There are no words to say
I am asking you to stay
The wind will tell you
Where to go

Chorus:
Moments of hope
Are filling my destiny
Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
Magic will give you the power
To stop this hour

Verse 2:
There is a light behind the darkest side
Keeping its secrets
Like a mysterious mind
The wind will whisper:
"She will be forever yours!…"
Bright moon will show you the way
All I'm asking you is to stay!

Chorus 1:
Moments of hope
Are filling my destiny
Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
Magic will give you the power
To stop this hour

Chorus 2:
Moments of hope
Are filling my destiny
Tomorrow is a history
But yesterday became a mystery
Magic will give you the power
To sacrifice the time
Track Name: Thousands of Stars
Thousands of Stars

Lyrics by Michael Timoshko

Verse1:
Like an angel
You appear in my dream
You hold me near and I feel a strange fear
Tears are streaming down my lips
You smile, but in your eyes
I am disappeared

Chorus:
Thousands of stars
Are drawing your name in the sky
You are so far away and my heart is broken apart
The day will come- I'll take your hand and we will fly away together
I miss you…

Verse2:
What does it mean? One look , one kiss
No more words, no more lies
Just a heart in the corner bleeds to dust
You went out of the shadows and flied
Hunting high and low, looking for more and more
Chasing yourself, playing with your fears

Chorus:
Thousands of stars
Are drawing your name in the sky
You are so far away and my heart is broken apart
The day will come- I'll take your hand and we will fly away together
I miss you…
Track Name: People of the Midnight Lands
People of the Midnight Lands

Lyrics by Ksenia Glonty

Verse1:
Wading through a snowstorm
Through frost-bound forests
We tirelessly moving forward, knowing no rest
Rough our hands, severe our spirit
Fearless men
Of midnight lands!

Bridge:
Gods of war will bless our swords
And whispering their last words
Our enemies
Will be brought to their knees
This battle will bring death
We'll fight till our last breath,
Never give up!

Chorus:
If one of us will fall
Valkyries will arrive to take his soul
By Odin's side
He'll stand in glory light!

Verse 2:
Nourished by winter
Tempered with cold wind
Steadfast warriors knowing no defeat
Ice is our armor, blizzard is our shield
We ride
In moonless night

Bridge:
Gods of war will bless our swords
And whispering their last words
Our enemies
Will be brought to their knees
This battle will bring death
We'll fight till our last breath,
Never give up!

Chorus:
If one of us will fall
Valkyries will arrive to take his soul
By Odin's side
He'll stand in glory light!

Choir:
Valkyries will arrive now to take his soul

Choir:
Gods of war will bless our
Swords and whispering their
Last words our enemies
Will be brought to their knees
This battle will bring death
We'll fight till our last breath!.....
Track Name: End of the World
End of the world

Lyrics by: Yosef Bartov

Verse 1:
My confusion got to find another way
To tell the untold ... reality
So far I feel a strange reaction
And I can see inside myself
Visions that show me how can I get out of here

Identities I've never seen before

…Before!

Chorus:
So is this the end of the world?
We need a miracle to carry on
Somehow the pain is gonna stay beneath your skin
Is there a way to get out?

Way to get out!

Verse 2:
When does it gonna end?
I'm mentally blind
I take a deep breath
And try to figure out
What the hell is going on?
Black clouds, earthquake
We're inside the storm…

The storm!

Chorus:
So is this the end of the world?
We need a miracle to carry on
Somehow the pain is gonna stay beneath your skin
Is there a way to get out?

Way to get out!
Track Name: Winter Death
Winter Death

Lyrics by Ksenia Glonty

Verse 1:
Time is passing by and slowly
Loses its breath
Sun is going down so lonely
In a frosty west

Bridge:
Cold spiny wind is blowing
All the hopes away
While fading life is flowing
Into a snowy haze

Chorus:
Within a frozen moment
Million flashes sweeping by
Oh, why
It suddenly became so easy
To stop this torment
To spread the wings and fly
Into a crystal winter sky !

Verse 2:
Solace is dwelt in
Wide opened eyes
Memories are melting
Like fragile ice

Bridge 2:
Soon salvation
Will bring long-awaited end
Reaching primordial creation
Uniting with rough land

Chorus:
Within a frozen moment
Million flashes sweeping by
Oh, why
It suddenly became so easy
To stop this torment
To spread the wings and fly
Into a crystal winter sky !
Track Name: Illusion
Illusion

Lyrics by: Yosef Bartov

Verse 1:
Not so far from here
There is are big mountain
Taken by the evil
Look close between the illusions
A new way to fight
No religion to pray
No chance to believe
Just stay quiet and think

Bridge:
Different time, same place
No chance to break the illusion

Chorus:
Think what happened in your past
Maybe your soul was taken?...
And now you're getting into
A suicide game!
Touched by an angel
Talking deep inside me
He says: "stay with me
The evil knows who you are…

Who you are!"

Verse 2:
Words of a banished evil
Are whispering in my ear
For how long shall I hear it?
Remember those times
When everything was so clear?
Fear was just a sensation
To fight against the unreal!

Bridge:
Different time, same place
No chance to break the illusion

Chorus:
Think what happened in your past
Maybe your soul was taken?...
And now you're getting into
A suicide game!
Touched by an angel
Talking deep inside me
He says: "stay with me
The evil knows who you are…

Who you are!"
Track Name: Leviathan
Leviathan

Lyrics by Ksenia Glonty

God:
-The one who contends with the Almighty
One word will he ever pronounce?

Iov (Job):
-Here I am, I'm unworthy, what can I answer you?
I put my hands on my mouth!

God:
-Everything beneath the heavens is my creation
Even the mightiest of all!

-Breathing fire from his maw
His eyes are like the rays of dawn
Power inside, Fear is ahead
He rises up- storm at his command!

God:
-Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
Would you discredit my justice?

Iov (Job):
-Nothing can stand in the way of your intentions
Now I know what a miracle is!

God:
Everything beneath the heavens is my creation
Even the mightiest of all!

-Breathing fire from his maw
His eyes are like the rays of dawn
Power inside, Fear is ahead
He rises up- storm at his command!

-Chest of rock, heart of stone
There is no weakness at his bones
His blazing sight will throw you down
King over all the proud!
Track Name: Mirrors
Mirrors

Lyrics by Ksenia Glonty

Verse 1:
Step into this glassy fragile world
It's so inviting, yet so cold
Being sure that you can break it
Slowly you become its prey

Bridge 1:
Mirrors will show you what you want to see
Making real your wildest fantasies

Chorus:
They'll make you laugh, they'll make you cry
They drive your fears, control your mind
Find the way out, don't stop your tries
Realm of crooked mirrors made you blind!

Verse 2:
The white turns black and black turns white
You can't distinguish wrong from right
Truth is turned from inside out
You're hypnotized, you have no doubt

Bridge 2:
Your soul is now distorted, depraved
Mirrors had made you their faithful slave

Chorus:
They'll make you laugh, they'll make you cry
They drive your fears, control your mind
Find the way out, don't stop your tries
Realm of crooked mirrors made you blind!
Track Name: The Art of Living
The Art of Living

Lyrics by: Yosef Bartov

Verse 1:
Living in the shadows, where there is no place to go
Living in the shadows, where there is no place to dream
Taking a deep breath to fight against my fears

Bridge:
Live the moment to understand the destiny


Chorus:
Listen to the silence to find the way
Help me
Save me

Verse 2:
Do you remember when nothing was everything?
Lies, cause what sounded good to you determined your choice
Your knowledge is fading, and this battle is just the beginning

Bridge:
Live the moment to understand the destiny

Chorus:
Listen to the silence to find the way
Help me
Save me

Chorus again twice
