Track Name: Cambyses (Festival E.P. Version)
Cambyses

A leader, empowered, through might and mystery
Commanding the hearts of, a legion fifty thousand strong
This day, the sand stirs in their wake

The sun burns its torment
Across the dunes of history
Steel rule has one intent
To reign supreme and rise to divinity

The lands you march to take
Are stronger than your heart can know
In time your will shall break
The meek will rise up and streams of blood will flow

Hear my words great king; for the vultures are already circling
The sands of time dictate your fate imprisoned here
As death rains from skies of dread
Forced by creation the storms cover the tracks
Of your dead

Verse III

Troops from high and low
The dunes howl screams and tortured sounds
War defines the meaning
Calls him to
Sacrifice his kind

Gods have sent a curse
To take from you
Your grand design

Cambyses you were doomed from the start of your era
The prize you sought, slipped through your hands as dust and air
Now find the way ahead
Follow the footsteps of your lost, forsaken dead

Now find the way ahead
Follow the footsteps of your lost, forsaken dead
Track Name: Oblivion (Festival E.P. Version)
Oblivion

A flurry of clashing swords as battle rages on
This vision of beauty strides through the mist claiming her love
Too shallow and proud I spurn her gift as faith is scorned
One withering gaze shows numbered days from above

First I could not see
She held destiny
Beneath her wings I'll be
Damned to oblivion

I feel those eyes from blackened skies swear vengeance on me
The forces of nature beckon as the storm crows
This evil I face, all hope laid waste I’m brought to my knees
I watch aghast, I see her at last as blood streams and flows

Doomed under this curse
In fear immersed
On the darkness perched
The black soul raven

First I could not see
She held destiny
Beneath her wings I'll be
Damned to oblivion.

Eyes, like a vault,
come and seal me in
To a self-made tomb
of my own skin
I could not see
She held destiny
Beneath her wings I'll be
Damned to oblivion
Track Name: The Epic (Festival E.P. Version)
The Epic


Words soft spoken, I hear her in my mind
Far from home now, my kingdom is lost in time
Men of iron fist, raised all Troy to dust
Now the sea beneath me, damns my eyes to

Searching the stars for a sign to appear
Please hear my call as the days turn to years
A path wrought with evil, through which I must find
The way to reclaim my home

I can resist
Withstand anything from you
Faith lies bleeding; truth lives until the end

Good men fought years still strong to the core
So many gone now, lost to horrors not seen before
Still I hear their cries, now forgotten lives
But their story ends here, alone I cling to

Searching the stars for a sign to appear
Please hear my call as the days turn to years
A path wrought with evil, through which I must find
The way to reclaim my home

I can resist
Blood insists
Reverie
Love endures
