01. Le Toit Du Monde

Music & lyrics by Luc Lemay
Earth met sky
In a place yet unchanged by time
Silence through heights can be heard
As peace roams high

Fortress of mist and peaks
Nature gave to man contemplation
Leading to divine inspiration

Mystic land
Sowed a seed of wisdom in man
Leading one's mind to embrace
A truthful life

Fortress of mist and peaks
Nature gave to man contemplation
Leading to divine inspiration

Tall
Beyond clouds, they stand
Ridges
Where the world began

Throughout summits reside
Reclusive, hate less minds


02. An Ocean Of Wisdom

Music & lyrics by Luc Lemay
Being left soul-abandoned, facing south
As a new born one
Seeds of compassion, shall be found
The oracle's trance told mystical signs
Incarnation's quest
Leading towards the rising sun

To the lake of visions
For answers, they will seek
Staring peacefully
Omens through the waters
Amongst majestic peaks
Letters, clearly seen

AH - KA - MA

Auspicious journey
Foreshadowed signs revealed
Guiding prophetically
Omens, to be answered
A young child, they will meet
Chosen, shall he be?

To the lake of visions
For answers, they will seek
Staring peacefully
Omens to be answered
A young child, they will meet
Chosen, shall he be?


03. Forgotten Arrows

Music by Colin Marston
Lyrics by Luc Lemay
Hate-filled mind
Wounds left unhealed through time
Hate-filled life
Scars left from words through time

Thrown, far, high
Lost arrows, one forgets
Heart gone blind
Drowned oneself in regrets

Strained...The string of pain
Bowed in causality
Sadness remains

Peace...Won't be obtained
As veils of ignorance,
Hatred retains

Storm of arrows through Karma
Seeking light through Samsara


04. Colored Sands

Music & lyrics by Luc Lemay
Onward to reach the wheel of time
A path in solitude
Embraced humbly
Hands, face and knees against the ground

Prostrations for existence to come
Winds of perpetuity
Through sails of vacuity
Shores of enlightenment
Are wished and found

Sand Mandala
Of the enlightened mind
Sand Mandala
Pure wisdom, one, shall find

Kalachakra
Disclosing mystic hands
Kalachakra
Splendors of colored sands

Soon this work art shall be
In the hands of ephemerality

Dismantled, will be,
The Wheel Of Time
Quiet intensity
The sands are poured at sea
Waves of enlightenment
Are blessed and found


05. The Battle Of Chamdo

Music by Luc Lemay
[Instrumental]


06. Enemies Of Compassion

Music & lyrics by Luc Lemay
Clouds made of fear
Roved the sky as the enemies
Chased the sun away from their land
Blacked, got, the snow
As the footsteps by enemies
Chased peace away
From their land

Hope and light,
Snow Lion brings
Through wisdom
Hate and lies,
Dragon infuses into freedom

The land of Snow
Being invaded by enemies
Shrines and beauties dressed up in ruins
One can't believe
Any words said by enemies
Cultural invasion begins

Suspicious walls
Prison of glass
Freedom is now stuck
Behind the bars of past

Curse...Uprising curse
Enemies of compassions
Despotic thirst

Waves of hate... Undertowed
Tragic fate...Sinking
Waves of hate... Undertowed
Mourning braves...Drowning


07. Ember's Voice

Music & lyrics by Luc Lemay
Burn
Strings tied to their lives now burn
Burn
Ropes tied around their hands shall burn
Stuck in time
Help being blind
Desperation rises
Starve for light
Fed with lies
Passion for life imprisoned

Tears
Ashes from tears, on hope's face, runs
Lost
Flame in peace's heart was long time lost
Ember's voice
Wisdom's choice
Freedom, one aspires
Glimpse of hope
Gone as smoke
Freedom reached through fire

Walls raised by oppression,
Yet invisible
Down, they can't be torn
Flames lit by repression
Burning silence, one cannot ignore

Blazing cries, hatred resents
Pain leads to soul's deliverance
Drifting from hands of contempt
Fire led to soul's resilience


08. Absconders

Music by Kevin Hufnagel
Lyrics by Luc Lemay
Walls of tears
Confined our lives and dignity
Hushed in fear
The peaceful days are gone
As memories

Invasion kept us prisoners
Nails of scorn
Were driven through those masks
That made us strangers
Their anger kept us prisoners
Doors of stone
Concealing truth for years
Silently

Days of fear
Are carving paths for us to take
Mournful years
Could never wilt our hopes
In freedom's sake

Escaping from this misery
Darkness shall unfurl its wings
And give us all the answers
Each footstep made with bravery
Dreadful chains
Are breaking from our feet
Free we'll be

In time,
One's fate finds peaceful grounds
In sight,
One's eye triggers and shoots
In pain,
One's fate finds crimson grounds
In vain,
One's eye captured the truth

Absconders


09. Reduced To Silence

Music & lyrics by Luc Lemay
Time could never heal our pain
Quietly loud
Our sadness resounds
Hope could never heal our soul
Tragically lost
Our voices
Were turned to silence

Prayers could never save ourselves
Strangers, we are
To our land...now, a prison
Peace wished to our enemies
Their eyes being shut
Our voices
Were turned to silence

Non-violent way
To misery, has led
All of what we are
Is now hanging
By a thread

All we did was pray
No freedom left to speak
Captive as their prey
Confined within our peaks

How shall we be remembered
Through the course of history?
As strengthless beings...?
Who chose submission
As their way to be...
