about

"The Last Ray of the Dying Sun" is a concept album covering the excorcism of the demon Mephisto to an alternate universe where Earth has a second sun in the form of (the planet) Mercury. Mephisto is trapped in the mercurial sun and his demonical influence is making the alternate Earth into a vortex of famine, war and destruction...

Track Name: First Ray of the Dying Sun
<<< In the year of the unicorn
To relieve the world of pain
Monks gathered to chant
To exile the demon of war
From the corona of their sun
To the core of another one.... >>>
Track Name: A Peaceful World
Can I ask
Can I ask for permission
Can I ask for permission to remember
Our past
Our past is important
Our past is important for our future

...a peaceful world...

Will I die
Will I die for beliving
Will I die for beliving in tomorrow
Here you are
Here you are to remember
Here you are to remember this moment

...a peaceful world...

<<< A world peaceful and advanced
Shadows sweeping over the land
Thunder is heard in the distance
Lightning reveal the change in people's mind >>>
Track Name: Awakening of a Different Planet
<<< Two suns gathered in the sky
Two moons hoover over the sea
The clouds have disappeared
from the bright green-coloured sky
The day is coming to an end
In one hour the suns will set in the west
Night sky is crowned by
The two moons mighty light >>>

Awakening
I can feel, something's wrong
Shaking in
Can't stop, my trembling body
Breaking in
Can't trust my eyes, lord
Awakening
on a different planet

I have seen
The awakening of a new planet
I have seen
The rising of a brand new world

<<< When night threads over the land
All the human life comes awake
Distant thunder over the seas
A new era is born for these years
Creatures wander in the night
All kinds of sounds fills my head
Hollow voices of secret souls
Thrill my ears to lunacy >>>

We awoke
to a brave new dawn
Planets in the sky
reflect my mood this night
The rings of Saturn has altered
Venus has shifted its course
When will they align again
Writhe in searing pain

I have seen
The awakening of a new planet
I have seen
The rising of a brand new world
Track Name: Sixteen Ninety-Eight
<<< Heavy boots marching on cobbled streets.
Congregating below the tower on 1698 West Avenue
Word is spreading...there are changes to come
No way to speak your mind and stay alive
Leave and don’t look back... >>>

I can´t seem to make up my mind
should I leave my past behind
The world move forward in gentle pace
can´t seem to let go of my old ways

I won´t go
I won´t go
I won´t go back to
Sixteen ninety-eight

I need a change, I need it now
How will I do it, I don´t now how
I need it good, I need it well
I need it now, cause I´m in hell

I won´t go
I won´t go
I won´t go back to
Sixteen ninety-eight
Track Name: Dark Star
Winter storms around me
Am I all alone
The wind bites my face

Shivering rings of ice
Tears my skin to pieces
Time has come

The world hides around me
I cannot hear, I cannot see
And no-one knows where I am

The cold winds of ice
Are still reaping my face
What have I done wrong

Violent crystals rips my clothes
I am no longer conscious
Will I see again

The world hides around me
I cannot hear, I cannot see
Am I losing control

<<< My mind is weakened
But my heart is strong
I will flee this coming storm
Only to return in stronger form >>>
Track Name: Sleeping Beast
<<< All these changes has confused my mind
I hope to find the answers, to what's changed my kind
I hope mother nature can heal those wounds
And give me strength to destroy the creature
That destroyed our peaceful world... >>>

You´ll fight
You´ll scream
You´ll die, alone in your dream
You´ll sweat
You´ll scream
You´ll cheat, death in your dream

Coming for you when you´re asleep
Not waking up, you are in to deep
Trying to flee, running to hide
Not waking up, the Beast is by your side

The sleeping Beast that hides at day
When you´re awake no soul to slay
When night arrives The Beast awakes
He wants your life, your soul to take

Supressing the Beast when you´re awake
Better be strong, your life is at stake
Staying alive is not a sin
Better not wake, The Beast sleeps within

You´ll fight
You´ll scream
You´ll die, alone in your dream
You´ll sweat
You´ll cry
You´ll die, alone in your dream

The sleeping Beast that hides at day
When you´re awake no soul to slay
When night arrives The Beast awakes
He wants your life, your soul to take
Track Name: Cathedral Woods Cosmic Skies
I lie awake
When dawn comes creepin' in
No dreams tonight
When no sleep can be found
My dreams are rain
Flowing in an endless stream
My final hour
In the life as it was

Dreams of hope
The sound of falling rain
Endless night
Clouds are rolling in
No more pain
The woods are still alive
Letting go, just letting go
Is there life on the other side

I Nearly found, my way through life
When truth came by, I lost my hope
I fought a battle, against evil
Now I know my fate, lie beyond this world

How can I find
A way to the other side
Lose control
Over time and space and life
The night is dark
The moon is hollow and cold
I lie awake
When dawn comes creepin' in

I Nearly found, my way through life
When truth came by, I lost my hope
I fought a battle, against evil
Now I know my fate, lie beyond this world

<<< A Dark and desert wilderness
A temporary place to call our Home
No trees to cover our whereabouts
Only sand to cover our tracks
Dark forces gathering
Moving through the mists of dawn
Chasing us down like flocks of mice
This will be the end of time... >>>
Track Name: Disintegrator
You win, you lose
It's not your choice to live anymore
The battle has it's own life
A fight to the inner core

Freedom was almost in our hands
But we never got close enough
I never backed down, or out
Even when life got too rough

Who do you turn to
when your sons die in war
The good Lord doesn´t exist here anymore!

The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore
The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore

You win, you lose
It's not your fight anymore
The human race has come astray
Moving to the exit door

Fight for freedom, fight for life
It´s not your fight anymore
Our old world is blown away
We´re moving to the exit door

Who do you turn to
when your sons die in war
The good Lord doesn´t exist here anymore!

The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore
The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore
Track Name: Blues for the Dying Sun
<<<Don't let us forget our past
Let's not forget what we're fighting for... >>>
Track Name: Sons of the Forgotten
We are the sons of the forgotten
Children of the lunar sea
Travelling ´til the end of time
Sailing on the solar breeze

People from a distent world
Destination still unknown
The time is set – we are leaving
As soon as the two suns part

Running ´til the end of time
Leaving home far behind
Never know what we might find
Searching for a pice of mind

A world in chaos left behind
Never know what we might find
On a journey, lost in space
Disappeared without a trace

We are the sons of the forgotten
Out of sight and out of mind
Will we ever find our future
Or be forever lost in time

Running ´til the end of time
Leaving home far behind
Never know what we might find
Searching for a pice of mind
