02. Tres Brujas

A strange voice within his mind
From the glowing orb in his hand
Spoke of the properties of certain herbs
Growing wild all across this land

Three witches you shall meet
Along the road to your fate
The first at twilight, the second at night,
And the third at the coming of day

Inhaling deeply of the sacred smoke
Slipping in between the worlds
He beheld a living column of light
And it sang to him without a word

Three witches you shall meet
Upon the path to your fate
The first will love you, the second will deceive you,
And the third will show you the way

Draw back your arrow and let it fly
May your aim be straight and true
Remember all that you have been told
And there might be some hope for you

Three witches you shall meet
Along the road to your fate
The first is twilight, the second is night,
And the third is the coming of day


03. Arrows In The Dark

Bound for the black country
As the light recedes behind
Upon the white odonatar
Witch's vision as their guide

Be wary and keep watch tonight
Make sure your weapon's at hand
Here in the land where shines no light
Death can strike you where you stand

There in the ruins
Borne of darkness
Approaching the altar
As the arrows begin to fly

Beware the tribes of night
They take no one alive

So star wary and keep watch tonight
Make sure your weapon's at hand
Here in the land where shines no light
Death can strike you where you stand


04. The Chronomancer I: Hubris

Feigned exultations in the court of autarch
Proclaiming heresies sublime
Sought by his enemies with lethal fascination
Self-styled traveler in time

He has learned forbidden wisdom
Not meant to be known
His skin became a prison
Where suffers his soul

Within the chamber buried deep below
Was wrought the means of his escape
Across the aether the other one must go
To sleep until that distant day

Across the aether one must go
To meet her fate
The other buried deep below
As he awaits

Arcane science of temporal exploration
Known to no one of his kind
Immortality through artificial transformation
To rule a world that soon will die


05. Lawless Lands

Yonder rides the Archer
Lost in lawless lands
Onward rides the Archer
Alone in lawless lands
Some strange power beckons
From beneath the ancient sands

No woman will have him
No man calls him friend
No woman will have him
Exiled and outlawed
By his only kin

Through twilit skies he rides
Searching the darkened side of the world
Into the night
Never knowing he has been lead astray

Through lawless lands he flies
Across the burning face of the world
Under the suns
His life begins to slip away

...a shining angel descends
Down from the sky
Her coming was foretold


07. The Warp Riders

You will not find us among
Those who dream of escaping
Across the aether we've come
All is ours for the taking

You don't age when you live out of time
A thousand years in the blink of an eye

Secrets of the blackest void
Known only to the ancients
Freedom from the planetoids
And the gravity that chains us

To make a fold in space and slip between the curves
Sacrifice of the sisterhood to do for those they serve
To cross a universe in hyper-spatial flight
We ride the warp of space into the womb of night

Ouranos' daughter, Hermes' bride
Mistress of the Mysteries
Upon the ward she rides
Navigatrix of the star-seas

She makes a fold in space, we slip between the curves
Sacrifice of the sisterhood to do for those they serve
To cross the Universe in hyper-spatial flight
We ride the warp of space into the womb of night

You don't age when you live out of time
A thousand years in the blink of an eye


08. Night City

There is a place where the losers win
A port of call for desperate men
It is known by many names
We come and go but it remains
Nobody cares, nobody cries
If you're scared or if you die
That's the way it goes
You should know...

You're in the place they call the Night-side
In the shadows where the killers and the pirates hide
Stick around if you think you can survive
In the city on the Night-side

Running scared through endless night
Too afraid to put up a fight
They shackle her wrists
It's too late to resist
Scanned for weapons and transmitters
Sold at auction to the highest bidder
That's the way it goes
Now you know...

You can find us on the Night-side
In the shadows where the killers and the pirates hide
Come around if you think you can survive
In the city on the Night-side

You can find us on the Night-side
In the shadows where the killers and the pirates hide
Come around if you think you can survive
In the place they call the Night-side


09. The Chronomancer II: Nemesis

Far across the gulf of time he watches all unfold
The cursed day draws ever nearer as he has foretold
The bearer of the orb awaits the sacred key
Into the world anew once more what was will be

Racing through the netherworld outside of time and space
He has found a hidden path to pass forbidden gates
Body left to rot as the great tidal lock sets in
The cord is cut, the way is shut, the orb goes dim


10. (The Night the Sky Cried) Tears Of Fire

It was a relic of another time
Plundered from an ancient tomb
Wrought by forgotten arts
Inscribed with cryptic runes

They called us fierce marauders
Warp riders and guns for hire
Before the sky cried tears of fire

Looking out across the void
We beheld a fearsome sight
Two armadas arrayed before us
Preparing to unleash their might

The Lady kept her promise
We heard the sound of a cosmic choir
The night the sky cried tears of fire

This is the hour of the Phoenix
When all must be reborn in flame
And though they did not know it
Nothing could remain the same

The captain has his vengeance
As we drift through a sea of pyres
The stars will always remember
When the sky cried tears of fire
