The Aeons Torn – Beyond The Gates Of Imagination Pt.-2 (2013) – Leviathan

1. The Crescent Moon

You'll find me at the edge of the unknown
Only your insight may push me off my throne
To you a new horizon I will show
If you guessed my name then let me know

I’m always the one in between
(Always need two things to be)
Danger and hope - both in me
Will I become sorrow or sweet satisfaction
Art would be meaningless without me

In darkness and in misery
I am the one who comes to thee
And may your goal seem all too far
I will be your brightest star

I'll lead the way I guide your path
I am the one that leaves you last
If I am there, I can assure
There’s nothing that you can't adjure

The word is my death and birth

Come follow me I'll promise we
Will rise above the edge of your dreams and capabilities
I am the wings and foothold of willpower
Of virtues the first and shield of em all!

2. The Rising Darkness

I have awakened and will never rest
Burning like acid inside of your chest

And when your mind creates an image of
What you can't have you will be mine
My hunger is endless my presence's defined
By the absence of things who am I

I march into destruction
The fire burns inside

Bow to me let me defile you
Take action do not think
Let thy dreams come to fruition
Grief and death walk by my side

Let us fight

Focus to your dearest wishes
Vicious cohort of thy kind
I'll give you an easy way out
Come and be forever mine

3. The Sacred Fire

Without me you could never be
Yet you always try to overcome
Most of time I'll be a pain to thee
Cause you know that I will never fade away

Embrace me and I will walk away
But in time I'll come back to stay
Credit me for everything you hoard
Do you know my name then tell me who am I

Circular argument does not seem consistent
Without repetition you will never learn
Before I lose myself let me tell you this one thing
Your decisions are all based on me

Leave all behind and you will want for nothing
Let me take your life away

You cannot seize me forever although
You will not abandon me

4. The Restless Wind

I push you to new horizons
I fly as fast as the wind
Go viral over the mountains
Come and follow my hint

I will never end
Promise a wide range of treasure
The power I lend
You lavish with pleasure

When I'm breeze in your sail you may
Travel as fast as the wind
And fly fast as the clouds above
But when my ascendency slackens
You long and keep searching for me
Just like a child

Tell you where

Go to the end of your borders
Dig deep holes into the earth
Split up the smallest object
Look into yourself - quench your thirst

Never give up
Cause at the end of the horizon
Could be a place more convenient and
At ease

I great builder of walls the ordinary
Burn down the ground to bring forth your
Sanctuary
Go all the way and you'll end up alone

I am the parting of parting ways, the solitary
Go left or right, you decide, secretory
It's the view on yourself that blinds you

Who am I

I drive a watch in between communality
Selfishness leading the way to insanity
I'm splitting the world and I will not fail

There is a concept called gravity
How simple the world can be
Joining objects seems to work automatically
But joining views is
Hard - work - for - us
Let us keep searching for evermore
One - truth

5. Elysium

In the smallest thing I'm hidden
Though I'm also all embracing
Before me all things are even
Slowly turning swords to plowshares
A wall may fall - a shield may break but
I stand tall and will not fade away

I am a sea, who has no waves, who has no ground
I am a sea that is unbound

Do not hold on
To me or I'll be gone
If you want to fly
Just leave everything else behind

I was always by your side
What are you searching for

6. Towards The Storm

"Under the blackened sky we travel forth
Beyond the oceans far lies your reward
The fear has come for you to take you whole
It’s a thin line you walk watch your step or you may fall"

Beware the power I hold
Flee me and run to your home
Do not fear in your heart my friend
No never shall we look back again
Alone in the dark I behold
What I've been told

I blow your dreams away
I take the light from your eyes
No never shall we fall for thee
Who's hiding behind the lies
Nothing waits before you
Why still crawl through the night
Against you we stand and we fight
Towards the storm we ride

How dare you mortal fools
To come to my realm
For I divide the earth and rule the skies
Why leave your peace behind
Why seek demise
You left your sacred ground
And now my wrath you will bear

Nothing can hold us now
We walk with open eyes
I see you clearly now
See behind your disguise
You will not dictate our ways
Nor shall you ever reign
My peace is deep inside
You can not claim what you don't own

Beware the power I hold
Flee me and run to your home
Do not fear in your heart my friend
No never shall we look back again
Alone in the dark I behold
What I've been told

I blow your dreams away
I take the light from your eyes
No never shall we fall for thee
Who's hiding behind the lies
Nothing waits before you
Why still crawl through the night
Against you we stand and we fight
Towards the storm we ride

7. When Only Despair Remains

Deep inside me there is an abyss
Made to swallow the world
In search of a reason for me to exist
And as words and ideas are
Spinning inside of my head
The mist slowly disappears
And leaves an empty plane

My celebration still is
Drawing circles in my head
And my body feels so numb
Like I'm already dead
Seems like everything I grab
Will just slip through my hands
Like the sand that I am
When only despair remains

Empty gods and faceless demons
Shatter to dust
Don't need this ideas
To dream me worthy to live
There is nothing that I can hold on
No image of this world
And I can't even get
A grip on myself

My celebration still is
Drawing circles in my head
And my body feels so numb
Like I'm already dead
Seems like everything I grab
Will just slip through my hands
Like the sand that I am
When only despair remains

8. Last Laugh At My Existence

I have looked into the abyss
Seen my structures crumbling down
Felt the nemesis of reason
Strike like lightning through my mind

You live and die
Not finding answers
Cause the truth hurts like a fire
In your mind
So take a last laugh
At your existence
Leave your footprints in the dust
And be no more
For evermore

Illuminated with this darkness
Stood there shattered with my tears finally dried
Was dumbfound by my reaction
Could not help but laugh

You live and die
Not finding answers
Cause the truth hurts like a fire
In your mind
So take a last laugh
At your existence
Leave your footprints in the dust
And be no more
For evermore

9. A Symphony For No Tomorrow

While I walk this streets I hear them calling
Within their voices full of callousness
Had a vision of an eternal blossom
But when I looked it was shattered and gone

I close my eyes and hear their
Echoes ringing in my head
Is this my lives burden to bear
No place for silence but still so hollow
Do I belong in this absurdity
Why do I read empty pages of
A long closed book
And I know the noise that I hear
Is like a symphony for no tomorrow
And not the freedom I want it to be

From all the things I've seen
Around the world I've been
And I know for sure
One thing will never change

People running in circles
In the space that they call life

When I come to the silent halls
The light finally cast away
No feeling, no noise
Empty but whole

Created from the mist of burrows
The haunted echoes of my kind
But I won't feel anymore sorrows
Cause the blossom still blooms in my mind

I close my eyes and hear their
Echoes ringing in my head
Is this my lives burden to bear
No place for silence but still so hollow
Do I belong in this absurdity
Why do I read empty pages of
A long closed book
And I know the noise that I hear
Is like a symphony for no tomorrow
And not the freedom I want it to be
