01. Der Mitternachtslöwe

Music & lyrics by Christofer Johnsson, Mats Levén
In the end of time, in times of revelation
Lion from the north appear in the dark nation

Löwe aus der Mitternacht
Tear down the curtain of Paroketh
Ecce vicit Ariel
Break the seal and make the lion rise

When man has found all the three treasures
Stars will fall and the lion will rise
Ariel, break the seventh seal
Abaddon, rise from the great black sea

Read the forecast - Fear the Eagle
See the wonders - Trust the Lion
Read the prophecy, the saviour of midnight
Ascending right now to bring us Borean light

Löwe aus der Mitternacht
Tear down the curtain of Paroketh
Ecce vicit Ariel
Break the seal and make the Lion rise

When man has found all the three treasures
Stars will fall and the lion will rise
Ariel, break the seventh seal
Abaddon, rise from the great black sea


02. Gothic Kabbalah

Music & lyrics by Petter Karlsson
Listen when the Sibyl speak
(Of) prophecies and ciphers in the sky
Adulruna is her name
I will follow - Come to me!

Fifteen runes (were) revealed to me
A holy message from the Frey to man
Secret letters in my mind
The door is open in your dreams

From ancient days the Sibyl speaks to me
Through the northern wind
The Talisman of Gothic Kabbalah (she) reveals to me
The staves and runes are written in the sky
Read the book of Gog
The Talisman of Gothic Kabbalah (will) unite your soul

Kabbalah Upsalica
Odin, Thor and Frey, you'll find them here
I'm the runic kabbalist, the door is open in your dreams

From thrones and temples of the mighty gods
In the halls above the words and runes of
Gothic Kabbalah (are) once again revealed
The soul will fly, ascending into the sky to the halls above
The words and runes of Gothic Kabbalah
They'll break he chains

From ancient days the Sibyl speaks to me
Through the northern wind
The Talisman of Gothic Kabbalah (she) reveals to me
The staves and runes are written in the sky
Read the book of Gog
The Talisman of Gothic Kabbalah (will) unite your soul


03. The Perennial Sophia

Music by Johan Niemann, Mats Levén, Petter Karlsson
Enter paradise, the snake will find the way
She is Lilith, fallen from the sky
Fall into our world, the Snake of paradise
(You're the) Maid of Wisdom in (the) songs of Orpheus

She's the wisdom, she's the truth: The Eternal Sophia
Perennial, beyond the time, she is the one
You're the river, you're the womb
The perennial
The Sophia

Sophia is here
Do we need to fear?
She's the gem of (the) mind
... (Or the) serpent for the blind
She will make me see
Or she will punish me
She appear in a glare
Or disappear

She's the wisdom, she's the truth: The Eternal Sophia
Perennial, beyond the time, she is the one
You're the river, you're the womb
The perennial
The Sophia

Shekinah, Shekinah
Eternal Sophia
Shekinah, Shekinah
Eternal Sophia

She's the wisdom, she's the truth: The Eternal Sophia
Perennial, beyond the time, she is the one
You're the river, you're the womb
The perennial
(The) Sophia...
Sophia...


04. Wisdom And The Cage

Music by Kristian Niemann, Petter Karlsson
I am trapped in matters cage
I am locked in heavy chains

Sophia, please rescue me
From the carnal darkness
In the shades of reflections
Break the chains and the cage!

Byrghal is the only door to the path of Tinctura
(To an) alchemy within my soul
That will guide my spirit
And may lead to perfection
Break the chains and the cage!

Sophia, I believe in you, your light...
Shine inside my soul, I feel the sun from above
Sophia, I believe in you, your light is so bright
Shine inside my soul, I feel the sun from above

06. Tuna 1613

Flash of light, from the sky above
I'm the augur of runes
I'm the Lion Man

Flash of light, early in this winter dawn
A vision of hidden truths in Tuna

IVDICIVM, the year I have waited for
I read it (in) the prophecy
Year of doom

I can see! I'm filled with this fantasy
The King is my company in Tuna
The judgement day,
It has been revealed to me (in) a moment of ecstasy
I can see!

Flash of light, from the sky above
I'm the augur of runes
I'm the Lion Man

666, the number was shown to me
I'm filled with this prophecy in Tuna
A Momentum excitationis
In the year of Ivdicivm
Year of Doom

Flash of light, from the sky above
I'm the augur of runes
I'm the Lion Man


07. Trul

If you run in the track of wolves
You're entering Trul
A land beyond the Shepherds
Grove in the depth of night
Do you understand?

Runes expelled from the world of God
(Runes) with demons and trolls
(They will) push you down with the trident fork
(The) four stave rage of man
Enter Trul

Wolves are going to hunt the shepherds
Flock and tear them apart
Bear the sign of the beasts of Trul
(The) four stave rage of man
Enter Trul


08. Close Up The Streams

Lyrics by Christofer Johnsson, Mats Levén
"Close up the Streams", I was told
"Look, (the) meadows have drunk enough"
In words like this, there's a sign: A secret I will proclaim

Run to meet me, said the voice
Run to meet me, walk to me
GÆGHN MIS, GÆGHN MIS
Run to meet me, walk to me

RIVos IaM CLaVDe
pVer sat prata bIberVnt

Close up the streams, now it's time for revelations to come
Angels are grinding their swords
Muses are singing their song

Run to meet me, said the voice
Run to meet me, walk to me
GÆGHN MIS, GÆGHN MIS
Run to meet me, walk to me

RIVos IaM CLaVDe
pVer sat prata bIberVnt


09. The Wand Of Abaris

Lyrics by Christofer Johnsson, Kristian Niemann
Walking through heat and desert sand
High priest of the Egyptian land
On his way to the land of snow
From his wand all the magic flows

The wand is glowing in the dark
Abaris show the way to Man

Sparks and arrows of the sun
Penetrate the human mind
Sparks and arrow of the sun
Leave the groves of Arcady
Take the wand across the sea
Leave the groves of Arcady

(The) rune of EiwaR is guiding you
A Delphian forecast of what to do
Enter Sanctum of Uppsala
Earthly foretaste of Walhalla

The wand is glowing in the dark
Abaris show the way to Man

Sparks and arrows of the sun
Penetrate the human mind
Sparks and arrows of the sun
Leave the groves of Arcady
Take the wand across the sea
Leave the groves of Arcady

I see divine Abaris in the labyrinth
I hold the bow and arrow made of hidden runes


10. Three Treasures

Lyrics by Christofer Johnsson
One day three men will find
The cure of all pain
Hidden somewhere between
The realms of France and Spain

Iliaster!

The first man thirty-two, last one twenty-eight
The second is fifty
The finding is their fate

(The) spirit in the bottle, they will set it free
(It is) made of salt and sulphur and of mercury

Old hidden treasures, three we will find
Diamonds and pearls, the gold of the mind

One is found in Weida
One in Germany
Between Schwaben (and) Bayern
Gems of alchemy

Iliaster!

All of this (a) legend of the great man Bombast
The second Trismegist, Philip Theophrast

Old hidden treasures, three we will find
Diamonds and pearls, the gold of the mind


11. Path To Arcady

Lyrics by Petter Karlsson, Kristian Niemann
When I recall your name, I recall the time
When Hermes (Trismegist) and Orpheus wrote down the rhyme
When I recall your name...
When I recall your name...

Follow the emerald of eternity
Follow the path of Thor, and a path to Arcady

When I recall your name...
When I recall your name...
When I recall your name, I recall the time
When the philosophers where striving for (the) sublime
When I recall your name...
When I recall your name...

If you recall the name, you recall the sight
Of the perennial and of the eternal light
When I recall your name...
When I recall your name...


12. TOF - The Trinity

Lyrics by Kristian Niemann, Mats Levén, Petter Karlsson
Inside the hof, the statues stand
They talk to us through sacred wood
Odin, Thor and Frey the gods
We worship them, this trinity

Sacred lore of father Thor - the superior in the sky
Was brought to us, by the lion. The salvation when we die
Door of Thor to Walhalla, is wide open to the one
Who knows the key of Jupiter - adulruna of the sun

Byrghal, Sunna, Idher, Man, Haghal
Kaghvänd, Thora, Signum foederis

T. O. F - Trinity
Open the door - O' father Thor
T. O. F - Trinity

Deep in the well I gaze, the fire of Thor I face
The surface exposes the god who's present inside my blood

To walk with gods is the goal of my spirit, body and soul
I find the gods in the maze in thunder, and godlike blaze

T. O. F - Trinity

High one and low one, you will be one
Climbing the mountain, enter the sun
Byrghal and Thora, you will unite
Like Frey and Freya, darkness and light

Open the door - O' father Thor

Deep in the well I gaze, the fire of Thor I face
The surface exposes the god who's present inside my blood.


13. Chain Of Minerva

Lyrics by Johan Niemann, Petter Karlsson, Mats Levén
Adelruna antiqua
The prophecy of Sibylla

I look into the mirror, a picture appears
Future, future...
A prophecy I see
I behold in the well: 2012

On the cross, on the hanged man's flesh you can read the runes of this prophecy

I can read the signs
I see!
Eagles don't eat flies
Movements in the sky predict the year
The mind of mine flies high

Adelruna antiqua
The prophecy of Sibylla

I stand on the mountain
I decipher the runes
I see, I hear the link of Minerva
The sound of astral bells
2012

I'm a link on Minerva's chain
I'm the lion
Bure is the (chosen) one

I can read the signs
I see!
Eagles don't eat flies
Movements in the sky predict the year
The mind of mine flies high

Adelruna antiqua
The prophecy of Sibylla


14. The Falling Stone

Lyrics by Petter Karlsson
It's about to crack the crystal sphere
Let a flake of heaven fall to Man
(The) falling stone

Do you want them to read just like us, all the signs?
Fifteen runes on the cube, all of the keys above

Yes, let us give them Abaris wand
Fruits of wisdom make them all ascend to the sun

But they may be sunblind from the light of the stone
(The) burning crystals of light, the gem of Lucifer

I will bring them keys to eternity, on this ladder (they) all will come back to me
When they rise up, soon they will fall again like the angels, waiting for a descent

It's about to crack the crystal sphere
Let a flake of heaven fall to Man
(The) falling stone

Do you want them to read just like us, all the signs?
Fifteen runes on the cube, all of the keys above

I will bring them keys to eternity, on this ladder (they) all will come back to me
When they rise up, soon they will fall again like the angels, waiting for a descent


15. Adulruna Rediviva

Lyrics by Christofer Johnsson, Kristian Niemann
Shine on me Runa
Rune rediviva, you're reborn at last, from the past

GÆGHN MIS

Adulruna Rediviva Adulruna
Hear the calling: "Walk to meet me! Run to meet me!"

In ancient days,
In an ancient world,
The Sibyls sung their melodies
But the song is lost, and no one hear
When Sibyls speak the words of gods
The world is deaf

Ancient Sibylla we will follow you...

Adulruna, old Sibylla
Hear our calling, speak to Mankind!

O' Hermes Trismegistos,
Orpheus, Zarathustra,
Pythagoras and Plato
Mediate the wisdom!

Philosophers eternal,
Make the spirit flying,
Rising to spheres harmonic
Where Sibyls are still singing

Leo, are you roaring to make the world awake again?
See Sophia descending from the sky

Drink the sacred nectar from the rose
The maiden has returned!

The root of mandragora
(Is the) foetus of Sibylla
The pages of the Runa
Mediate her message

Sibylla, Sophia,
She is born (the) female Christ
Aphrodite from the sea,
(O) sacred rose come to me

Come, come
Rise, Rise
Venus Venus

The nectar and the bloodred wine
Intoxicatate, expel the time

O' Hermes Trismegistos,
Orpheus, Zarathustra,
Pythagoras and Plato
Mediate her message!

Rise O' wise Venus,
Rune Rediviva!
