Track Name: Annunciation
From fire to flesh,
Desire to embodiment,
The divine foetus lost to mankind’s gruesomeness.

The devouring Sun consumes both man and beast.
The announcement from a long forgotten voice,
Insecurities killed the son of man,
A creed in Ego and pride

In screens of smoke they are confined,
Scorn for our hopeless sad minds,
Loath for our helpless sad lives,
Myriad oblivions implant ideals,
Senses ruined by slander.

Real intents are clear as water.
A never-ending corridor of nightmares.

Here, above and below,
We are trials of someone’s will.
Track Name: Ophanim
I gaze at them
Four wheels within four wheels.
Unknown deific sphere of mysticism,
A circle full of eyes around.

Black rings of access
To erratic conjectures.
Beware storms of ordeal
Look inside, hallucinate, foresee

Portals open wide,
From here to eternity

Sculptor of our mind’s obscurity
Tangled in density
Cloaked by a veil of mystery
The shrine of clarity

They sow they reap then forsake

Instincts and perseverance,
Burned by the “Grace” of commandment,
Freedom and acts of reverence
Soiled by the hands of unbalance,
The sacred serpent of knowledge
Perverted by foolish alliances
Witness the signs we are Divine
Track Name: Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun - Pink Floyd Version

LYRICS AND ORIGINAL SONG BY PINK FLOYD
___________________________________________

Little by little the night turns around.
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves the swallow is resting

Set the controls for the heart of the sun.

Over the mountain watching the watcher.
Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine.
One inch of love is one inch of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine.

Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
The heart of the sun.

Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his questions to Heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
