Lyrics:

01. Return To Troy

Now begins a story of a war
Taking place so far away from home
On the shores of Troy it all begins
as we're sailing throught the waves of endless sea

Odysseus: "Mother I'm headed to war
My blood-forgotten sword is by my side
Father devoted my sould
For the sake of Helen who is fair
...unfortunatetly not bright..."

Menelaus: "You don't understand the pain
My love's been taken away
You don't understand the pain
She broke my heart once again
Lying tales that females say
For the name of Greece now I'll
lay him to the ground"

Achilles: "I wanna see the bego for their lives!"

Soldiers marching through the blood-red seas
Trojans face the fearless Greeks
Time has come for blood to be spilled
For centuries this war had to be done...

Ajax: "Hector face your death... Before me you'll decay"


Hector: "Dare defy a Trojan man... That's all I have to say"

Hector: "Achilles one Achilles two... three the slicing of your throat!"

Hector: "Ajax you are strong but Patroclus won't be as lucky as you"

Deadly battle deadly rain
It falls on the faces of slain men
Through the Trojan horse we will
Conquer this city of gold
Bring it torture I'd say
Just illusions, dreams of pain
Now the war is done, now there's only one thing left to do

02. Arryan Path

Eat this sucker!
Civilization
It''s just a dreadful place with forgotten souls
in the middle of the night we're losing the war
we're going down the drain
reality's fading
what have we become?

ARRYAN PATH IS CALLING ARRYAN PATH


Civilization
has come to an end?
In the middle of the night we're drowning.
drowning
What the hell is going on?
where's the freedom, where is faith?
Follow the path and you will know
Come on now

03. The Liberation Song

It was the start of communist scheme
a vision of equal division
to change the world, give a hand to the poor
a classless society

But did it succeed? How can it be?
Where is the freedom we long for?
I'm just a man, and what could I say?
I search for a different world

Safely surroudning with grace
this world of illusions ( safely surrounding with grace this world of illusions )
Need to feel the power within my heart ( Need to feel my heart )
It's a place I belogn...

OFTEN THE NIGHT OFTEN THE DAY
OVER THE LIES AND THE DECAY
OFTEN WE SAIL INTO A SEA OF DESPERATION
OFTEN THE NIGHT OFTEN THE DAY
OFTEN TO GOD OH I PRAY
TO GIVE ME LIGHT AND RELIEVE THE DAMNATION

It's a place I belong...

This land of ice glows in the dark
sending a message to all of us
crystal the night, crystal the day
Oh let our people go free

Safely surroudning with grace
this world of illusions ( Safely surroudning with grace
this world of illusions )
Safely surrounding again this world of illusions and it's time to break free...

It's a place that I belong....

04. Road To Macedonia

by the fire, they talk to me everyday
Voices from a distant journey to the stars
chill is penetrating me, I get down on my knees
And pray
thre used to be a civilization, here on the ruins in this ancient land
Now you ask the peasant... "nah it's just pieces of rock"
for God's sake... "FOOL"
Alexander lived his life right here where we stand

FACING THE WALLS OF OUR DISCIPLES ERA
But I feel so alive
DYING FOR THOSE WHO REST IN THE GRAVEYARD
Stand in the ruins
OPEN YOUR HEART FOR THE HELLENIC BLOOD
The powers inside me
TO FLOW INTO THE MINDS OF EVERY DESCENDANT
Macedonia...

CRYING OF THE WALLS
DOWN ON THE ROAD TO MACEDONIA
WALLS THAT NEVER WILL FORGET HIS GLORY
DREAMING OF A PLACE
WHERE EVERYTHING IS MACEDONIA
I AM WHAT IS LEFT OF THIS OLD WORLD
TAKE US TO THE SKY
WE SEE THE STARS SHINNING ON ALL OF US
HERITAGE WE HOPE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
DYING FOR THIS LAND
NEVER FORGET OUR MACEDONIA
WE ARE WHAT IS LEFT OF THIS OLD WORLD

Now the times are changing
we breed hate with a capital "H"
No more signs of that civilization that made us proud
now just decay
What used to be a culture now a peace that's gone to pieces... I'm on my knees again
Forgive us prince we ruined the land we are to blame

FACING THE WALLS OF OUR DISCIPLES ERA
But I feel so alive
DYING FOR THOSE WHO REST IN THE GRAVEYARD
Stand in the ruins
OPEN YOUR HEART FOR THE HELLENIC BLOOD
The powers inside me
TO FLOW INTO THE MINDS OF EVERY DESCENDANT
Macedonia...

Down the road to Macedonia

05. Osiris

Mystic night the night is burning
Tortured sinners a radical burning
Wait for the sun as you rise because
Your blood will lead us to war!

Oh God of all, we hail thy sword
Govern our soul and give us hope

And the light will shine again (Yes I am that warrior)
Feel the mortals call your name (Over the land of Egyptrian soil)
And the light will shine again (and I feel and I feel it)
For he who commands the rain

I'M WAITING FOR OSIRIS
TO TAKE AWAY THE PAIN
I'M WAITING FOR OSIRIS
TO SHARE OUR MORTAL PAIN
I'M WAITING FOR OSIRIS
TO COME HOME
I'M WAITING FOR THE ONE
WHO CLAIMS THE THRONE

Temple of war unites us all
Mendita God, thy sword you hold

And the light will shine again ( Yes I am that warrior)
Feel the mortals call your name (Over the land of Egyptian soil)
And the light will shine again (and I feel and I feel it)
For he who commands the rain

Brother of Seth, grant us eternal glory
Blood spilled, torn into pieces and mend back again
You came back to our life
Eternally to live and die
King of the dead, blood of winter
Below the eart, below the earth
Your blood will lead us to war

And the light will shine again (Yes I am that warrior)

Feel the mortals call your name (Over the land of Egyptian soil)
And the light will shine again (and I feel and I feel it)
For he who commands the rain

You know you're our night and day
All I wanna do is hail you...

06. Piri Reis

We sail across the seven seas
Ten thousand miles away from home
We have a dream, beyond reality
Oh God forgive me
Save our souls

I'm just a man of inner loss
Into a world of black and white
Come take my hand, follow the cause
And for you fate I will decide

Torture in my head
I feel it, feel it gain

OUT OF THE STORM
THERE CAME THE BEAST
(IN MANIA)
OUT OF THE STORM
THERE CAME THE BEAST
(IN MANIA)
OUT OF THE STORM
THERE CAME THE BEAST
ONLY TO STIR OUR MINDS
FROM PEACE
OBSTACLES RAGE
FROM RIGHT HERE TO THE GRAVE

Impossible rain
We flirt with deat
We sold our souls for
A moment of truth
I can't see glory, I can't see fame
All I can see our lives betrayed

Torture in my head
I feel it, feel it again
It's coming our way!

You don't need to doubt me
I remember those days way too well
And I pray...

08. Call For Poseidon

Way up in the south to a sea
Of endless suffering and disease
Lives the God of water and sea
Calling of his name... to our knees

OH NEPTUNE HEAR MY CALL
FROM THE ICY ROCKS OF CRETE
TO THE ISLANDS LOST IN GREED
THROUGH THIS WAR
WE ARE LOST YOU KNOW
DESPERATE VOICES HEAR THEIR CALL
TO SURVIVE INTO YOUR SEA
THEY MUST FALL

(They must fall)

Hail to you Poseidon of Greece
(Poseidon of Greece)
You should fight for freedom and peace
All the Gods will answer to your pleas
(answer to your pleas)
In our hear your own ocean breeze

(They must fall)

09. Epic Of The Sorrowful Argonaut

FOR THE BLACK AND THE RISING SUN
FOR THE STEEL THAT WARMS MY HAND
TAKE A LOOK TO THE SKY
KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN WIDE
FOR THE SAVIOUR HE WILL RETURN

From the crimson faded ashes I awake
I don't know where I belong or where to stay
I just long to find the answers as they fade away
Vengeance from the mand who took my clay

From the dealer, the deceiver, I'll escape
To declare a war of never ending hate
I will bring down all the walls they put up in my way
Just to find the man they call Xavier

And all the roads will find me ready
Ready to leave the streets of love
And all the fights are all in vain
Out of the sky

Took my queen and took my throne
And took my land
Now I wanna see him crawl before my clan
to humiliate himself under the burning sun
Ivorian is my name and you are under my command
I assume you've seen my picture on the trees
Someone sketched it before leaving
This world in tears
He was one of Xacier's messangers he lived in fear
Put him out of his misery before he spread diseas

And all the wars will find me ready
Ready to leave the streets of love
And all the fights are all in vain
Out of the sky...
To see them fall!

Solo: Socratis

Take the sword or I will take your life
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
My soul will rest in mortal pease
I don't care anymore

Come on let's start the fight!
Get down on your knees
I don't know but it feels like coming
An internal disease

Solo: Kokos

The warriors are down here with me
And we are ready to fight
I need blood and that you will provide
I am seeking death in the middle of the night
It's decay!!!

Wars, will find me ready
Ready to leave the streets, the streets of love
Fights are all in vain
Out of the sky...

Look at the sun!

FOR THE BLACK AND THE RISING SUN
FOR THE STEEL THAT WARMS MY HAND
TAKE A LOOK TO THE SKY
KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN WIDE
FOR THE SAVIOUR HE WILL RETURN

(Feel me rising from the ashes, feel me rising from the earth
hear oh hear my story, hear oh hear my story
feel me rising from the ashes, feel me rising from the earth)

(I feel the depression I don't want to live anymore
I feel the oppression I don't want to live anymore
Over the hills, over the lands, across the river of hate)

10. Ivorian

Cimmerian nights, world of disaster
and world of pain

Where time meets space, teel me tell me...
out of the ashes, spiritual leader,
a leader of souls
there in the mystical rain was born a warrior
the truth and rage were seen into...

IVORIAN THE GREAT YOUR DESTINY
WAS PREDEFINED
SURVIVORS OF THE FLAME A NEVER
ENDING TRADEGY

Child gone astray, magic cam visualise
all your lust
he re-arranged everything else in the land
fought like a king showed no mercy
and killed with delight
into the night, feel the air, feel the ocean,
feel the sky...

IVORIAN THE GREAT THE GODS OF WAR
BOW WITH DISGRACE
AND NOW IT FEELS SO GREAT TO SERVE THE POOR
AND FIGHT THE DARK RACE

Roaming and taking and raping
bow to his glory he's the vurture
he's the snake
