Track Name: A Higher Claim
LOST MY DREAMS WITHIN A FIRE,
DESPAIR DESTROYED ALL MY BELIEFS.
FOR I THOUGHT I WOULD LIVE IN HARMONY...
CRUEL DEEDS THAT TOOK MY WEALTH.

STRANGE WORDS ARE RELEASED FROM MY LIPS,
PRAYERS THAT SEEK A HIGHER CLAIM.

WHAT HAVE I DONE FOR YOU TO HATE ME?
I NEVER WISHED THIS LOSS TO ANYONE.
HAD ONLY MY FAITH TO SURVIVE,
THE CLOUDS ARE CRYING,
EVERYTHING IS GONE!

STILL, I’M HELD BY DEATH’S FOE,
NEITHER HATE NOR GUILT SHALL RUIN MY NAME.

I’LL TELL THE WORLD I’M STILL HERE,
HOW STRANGE IT SEEMS TO ME,
FOR I KNOW I’M ONE MORE VICTIM,
BUT FAR FROM INNOCENCE IT SEEMS.

STRANGE WORDS ARE RELEASED FROM MY LIPS,
PRAYERS THAT SEEK AN HIGHER CLAIM.

THE SUN BRIGHTENS THE HORIZON ONCE MORE
AND THE WIND SUSTAINS MY VITAL BREATH.
DON’T KNOW WHERE PARADISE IS FOUND,
BUT IN MY FAITH I’LL FIND MY REST,
FOREVER… AND EVER!
Track Name: Beyond the Darkest Horizons
Died and lost the suffering inside,
now held by laws from afar.
Raised before the ending of flames
where souls need no praise.

Carried and embraced
by unspeakable deeds,
a mistress amazed in grey...

Sealed in a state
deprived of shame
where beliefs are held in vain.

There,
where the stars found its grace,
will I find my fate?

I'm less than what I used to be
but still a fire belongs to me...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Beyond the darkest horizon



Where the light found my end,
I grasped the skies with honour.
I'm falling in this kingdom,
I'm yearning for heaven...

Still lonely in this voyage,
my heart was left beyond
the darkest horizon...

Here,
where eden lies...
my tears are shed and lost forever...

And death portrayed, in silence,
the sweetest smile...
A fire so divine...

No longer a shadow of the past...
There's nothing but light in my eyes...´
