PostSubject: THE WAY lyrics   Sun Dec 04, 2011 9:01 pm

EBB AND FLOW

I SIT HERE GAZING SKYWARD
TOWARDS THE CENTRAL STAR ON ORIONS BELT
I HAVE COME TO REALISE
THERE MAY COME A TIME OF DISCOVERY IN ONES EXISTENCE
A DISCOVERY OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
SOMETHING PROFOUND AND INSPIRING
THIS DISCOVERY MAY HAPPEN MORE THAN ONCE
YET IT MAY NOT HAPPEN AT ALL

A LONE ORCHID IN A FOREST MAY BLOOM YEAR AFTER YEAR
DISPLAYING FORM, COLOUR, BEAUTY AND FRAGRANCE
IN ALL ITS GLORY
YET IT MAY LAY UNDISCOVERED TO ITS DYING DAY
ITS CONTRIBUTION TO THE EBB AND FLOW OF THE MULTIVERSE UNNOTICED AND SILENT
MISSED BY BLIND EYES

YET THE ORCHID CARES NOT FOR THE WITNESS OF OTHERS
NEATH THE SUN IT BLOOMS AND THRIVES REGARDLESS
LIVING ONLY FOR ITSELF AND THOSE WHO WISH TO FIND IT
IT IS THOSE WHO SEEK MY FRIENDS WHO SHALL FIND

I KNOW NOW WHY I AM HERE
KNEELING BEFORE ORION
I KNOW NOW THAT LIKE THE ORCHID
YOU HAVE FOUND ME
WELL MY GOOD FRIENDS

ALLOW ME TO OFFER MY CONTRIBUTION TO THE EBB AND FLOW OF THE MULTIVERSE
A CONTRIBUTION WHICH IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT SILENT

HOME

I STAND ON THE HIGHEST CLIFF
MY VOICE ECHOES BEYOND THE HORIZON

THE GRACELAND IS BECKONING ME
I CAN HEAR IT IN THE WAVES

IS THIS A DREAM
IF SO I SHALL FALL TO MY DEATH
SOMETHING WITHIN ME PUSHES MY BODY
TOWARD THE EDGE

WITH ONE LAST GAZE TO THE ELDERS I LEAP
MY ARMS OUT STRETCHED
I TAKE FLIGHT
MY BODY SEARING PAST THE MOUNTAINSIDE
YES
THROUGH THE CLOUDS I SEE THE OCEAN
VAST AND STILL
FASTER AND FASTER I SOAR
CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE SEA

MY CHEST A MERE INCH FROM THE STILL WATER
ARMS IN DELTA I PIERCE THE AIR
THERE IS NO SOUND

NO SOUND

SURGING UPWARD
I POINT TO THE HEAVENS

I AM FREE
THE GRACELAND AWAITS BELOW
IN ALL ITS BEAUTY
SOFT WAVES BREAK OPON THE WHITE SAND
THE WIND WHISPERING THROUGH THE TREES

I DESCEND

I AM HOME

LOST YET CONNECTED

I HAVE REACHED A JUNCTION IN MY MIND
THERE ARE TWO PATHS
ONE IS KNOWN TO ME
THE OTHER IS NOT

WHICH DO I TAKE
WHICH ONE
I AM LOST
LOST BEYOND LOST

FOOTSTEPS IN THE SAND
WASHED OVER BY THE WAVES
THOUGHTS AND WORDS
CARRIED IN THE WINDS
THE WINDS

MEMORIES AND DREAMS
DRIFTING LIKE DUST
WE ARE CONNECTED

FALLING THROUGH TIME
SOULS HAND IN HAND
CARVING OUR WAY
TO THE END

JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES
I AM THERE

OVER OCEANS AND LANDS
I SHALL FLY
WHEN OUR TIME COMES
I SHALL OFFER YOU MY HAND

YOU ARE LOST
WE ARE LOST

UNKOWN TO ALL
FORGOTTEN

WE SHALL FLY
WE SHALL FALL
WE SHALL BE
WE ARE CONNECTED

WE ARE BUT A THOUGHT

THROUGH EMPTY SPACE
OUR WAVES OF ENERGY
THEY DRIFT
CAST OUT BY OUR PHYSICAL ESSENCE
REMNANCE FLOATING
LONG FORGOTTEN
COLLIDING WITH THE STARS
MERGING WITH THE HEAVENS

ON OUR WAY TO NEW CREATION
CREATION

A NEW BIRTH BEYOND THIS REALM
FAR BEYOND DARK AND LIGHT
WE ARE BUT A THOUGHT

FLOATING IN THE WINDS
WE SHIMMER ACROSS THE SKY
WE GLIDE

OUR FORM AND SOULS
READY FOR THE NEXT ADVENTURE
FAR BEYOND THE VORTEX
WE ARE ON OUR WAY

I HOLD THE KEYS
YOU MAY BEAR THEM
TOGETHER
WE SHALL CROSS OVER

OUR MEMORIES SCATTERED
UNTO THE EVOCONIBRIUM
GATHERED BY THE ELDERS
TO FORM OUR NEXT EXISTENCE

THROUGH THE NETWORKS OF THE COSMOS
WE SHALL DRIFT
OUR IDEAS BEING WATCHED BY THE GODS

WE ARE BUT A THOUGHT

A NEW BIRTH
BEYOND THIS REALM
FAR BEYOND DARK AND LIGHT
WE ARE BUT A THOUGHT

I HOLD THE KEYS
YOU MAY BEAR THEM MY CHILD
TOGETHER WE SHALL CROSS OVER
TO OUR LAND UNKNOWN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(SOLO OF THE STARS)

I AM BUT A THOUGHT
FLOATING IN THE WIND
MY WAVES OF ENERGY
THEY DRIFT ............
..........
.......DRIFT.........
....
DRIFT......

ORBETHIAN QUEEN

I HAVE JOURNEYED FAR
TRAVERSING THE COUNTLESS GALAXIES
IN SEARCH OF THE ONE
HER

I HAVE BATTLED STORMS SO GREAT
BUT FINALLY I HAVE FOUND HER
SHE IS THE ONE
SHE IS WITH ME NOW

SHE IS WITH ME NOW
THE GREAT SORCERESS
SHE IS BEAUTIFUL
HER VOICE SOFT AS THE WIND
DO NOT BE FOOLED THOUGH
HER SORCERY IS BEYOND DARK

SHE WARMS THE SOUL
BUT BEWARE
BEWARE OF THE DARK SIDE
TO THIS ORBETHIAN SORCERESS
BEWARE OF HER SPELL

MY ORBETHIAN QUEEN
I KNEEL BEFORE YOU
I SHALL PROTECT YOU NEATH MY WING
I EXIST ONLY TO SERVE YOU

YOU ARE MY ORBETHIAN QUEEN
TAKE YOUR THRONE
BY MY SIDE

FIRE DREAM

STARING INTO THE FIRE
CONTEMPLATING
DREAMING

PONDERING OVER THE INFINITE MULTIVERSE
LIKE WATER THE FLAMES FLOW OVER THE TIMBER
I AM ENTRANCED BY ITS FORM AND MOVEMENT
IN MY CHAIR I DRIFT INTO A WARM DEEP SLEEP

THE VOICE AGAIN
I HEAR IT
THAT SOUND AGAIN
I FEEL IT

I FEEL IT LIKE A SPIRIT PASSING THROUGH MY BONES
WHAT IS IT SAYING
WHAT DOES IT WANT
PERPLEXING SONIC WAVES SHROUD MY BODY
BEAUTIFUL ENERGY
RUSHING IN MY MIND
IT IS THE SONIC KEY TO THE MULTIVERSE
IT IS THE PRIMARY TONE THAT UNLOCKS THE SECRET TO THE STARS
YET IT IS BEYOND ME
I CANNOT GRASP IT
NOR CAN I FATHOM IT
ONE DAY
MAYBE

THE SONIC KEY
TO THE MULTIVERSE
IT IS THE PRIMARY TONE
THAT UNLOCKS THE SECRETS OF THE STARS

ONWARD IN MY QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE
OF THE HOMELAND
I HEAR IT BECKONING ME
ITS VOICE CARRIED IN THE FOUR WINDS
TO MY DYING DAY I SHALL HEAR IT
IN MY DREAMS

I MUST DISCOVER NOW
I MUST FIND A WAY TO BE AT ONE WITH THE ENERGY
STARING INTO THE FIRE
CREATING SONIC KEYS
MAYBE THIS IS THE WAY
MAYBE NOT

WHO IN THIS VAST COLLIDING VORTEX OF MATTER KNOWS ANYTHING AT ALL
THERE IS ONE
BUT I AM YET TO FIND IT

I WAKE
THE FIRE EXISTS NO MORE

PATH TO ABADDON

YOUR WORDS ARE LIKE POISON
YOUR RANTINGS RELENTLESS AND FALSE
NEVERTHELESS
EVIL IS IN THE BALANCE
FOR THE PENDULUM
IT SWINGS

YET I AM BEYOND YOU
I AM FAR AHEAD
YOU LAY IN MY WAKE
HELPLESS
YOU ARE LOST
FOR IT IS MY PATH TO CARVE
AND CARVE IT I SHALL

ON YOUR DAY OF JUDGEMENT
YOU SHALL SEE
YOU HAVE WASTED YOUR TIME
YOU HAVE FOUND NOTHING
YOUR CREATIONS LAY DORMANT

CAST AWAY BY THE MASSES
YOU ARE BUT AN ILLUSIONIST
WITH DARK TRICKERY
YOU ARE NOWHERE
THEY CARE NOT
I CARE NOT

ONLY TIME WILL TELL
BY THE JUDGE OF THE GREAT ELDERS
I SHALL BE CAST INTO THE AFTERLIFE
MY EFFORTS INFLUENCING SO
THE TRUTH SHALL BE REVEALED
FOR THE WITNESSES ARE BLIND
UNABLE TO SEE PAST YOUR HOODED MASK

FOR BALANCE IS ESSENTIAL
MAYBE IT IS I THAT SHALL BE BANISHED TO THE VORTEX
MAYBE IT IS I THAT IS EVIL
LIGHT ..... DARK.......DARK.......LIGHT

NOTHING MATTERS ANYWAY
WE ARE ALL DOOMED TO HELL
WE ARE ALL CARVING OUR PATH TO HELL
IN THE END
ALL WILL BE FORGOTTEN
FORGOTTEN
REGARDLESS
REGARDLESS

THE WHISPER IN THE WIND

A FLASHBACK
A MEMORY OF THAT PLACE
A DREAM IN WHICH I AM BOUND

THE VOICE ECHOING THROUGH MY MIND
THE ANSWER SO CLOSE
YET SO FAR
UNABLE TO GRASP IT
UNABLE TO WAKE

IT CARRIES THE CODE
I MUST REACH OUT MY HAND AND SEIZE IT
YET I CANNNOT

MAYBE IT IS TIME TO GIVE UP
MAYBE IT IS TIME TO GIVE IN
YIELD TO THIS POWER I SHALL
FOR IT IS BEYOND ME

FOR MANY YEARS NOW
I HAVE COME NO CLOSER
FOR YEARS I HAVE TRIED AND FAILED
A NEW DIRECTION IS IN ORDER

A NEW PATH MUST BE CARVED
I AM REVOLVING IN CIRCLES AND MUST BREAK FREE

IT MUST HAPPEN SOON
THE EVOCONIBRIUM BECKONS
THE SOURCE IS CALLING NOW
MORE THAN EVER

I AM COMING MY MASTERS
I WILL FIND A WAY SOON
THROUGH THE GREAT MIST I SHALL CAST MY GAZE
DIRECTLY INTO YOUR EYES

OUR MINDS SHALL CONNECT
OUR ESSENCE SHALL MERGE
MY SOUL SHALL DRIFT UNTO YOU
I HAVE NO FEAR NOW
IT HAS ALL BUT GONE

I AM HERE
WAITING
WAITING


MEUS UNIVERSUM..............MEUS SOMNIUM

MY ORBETHIAN SPACELORDS
YOU HAVE FOLLOWED ME SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING
THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK
YOU ARE MASTERS OF THIS MULTIVERSE
THE ORBETHIAN PALACE WELCOMES YOUR PRESCENCE WITH OPEN ARMS
YOU ARE THE BUTRESSES OF THIS EMPIRE
LIKE ME YOU HEAR THE SONIC WAVES OF THE COSMOS
LIKE ME YOU FEEL THE ENERGY FLOWING IN YOUR MIND
I RAISE MY ORBETHIAN BLADE AS A SIGN OF MY GRATITUDE
FOR NOW
FOR NOW...........

FOR THE END IS CLOSER THAN YOU MAY BE AWARE
I BELIEVE MY ORBETHIAN SHIELD AND SWORD OF DRAGON HAWK
MAY NOT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO HOLD BACK THE MINIONS OF EVIL FOR MUCH LONGER
THE COMING YEARS WILL BE A TEST OF OUR ABILITY TO BELIEVE
A TEST OF WILL
A TEST OF STRENGTH
AS THE SHIFTING HEAVENS CHURN AND REVOLVE
I WILL CONTINUE TO CAST MY SIGNAL
FOR AS LONG AS I CAN

I WILL CONTINUE IN MY SEARCH FOR THE KEYS OUR GATEWAY
FROM THIS REALM
MY ESSENCE STRIVES TOWARD A DESTINY IF ETERNAL HARMONY
SOULS WILL COME AND GO ALONG THE WAY
THE DRIFTERS MAY SEE THE TRUTH, YET THEY MAY NOT
ALL I KNOW IS THAT FEW SHALL FOLLOW ME TO THE VERY END
FEW WILL FOLLOW TO THE VERY GATES OF THE WHITE PALACE ITSELF
EITHER WAY I MUST OPEN THE PORTAL SOON
I MUST FIND THE KEY
I MUST FIND THE GRAND RINGS OF STONE
I MUST SEARCH THIS REALM FROM SEA TO LAND TO SKY
I BEG THE ELDERS WILL GUIDE MY HANDS TOWARD THE FINAL PRIMARY TONE

THE TONE UPON DISCOVERY SHALL ATOMISE MY BODY
AND ENABLE ME TO TRAVERSE THE CHANNELS OF THE EVOCONIBRIUM
WITH THOSE I DEEM WORTHY
UPON COMPLETION OF THE TONE WE SHALL BE CAST THROUGH THE TIME HOLE
BACK TO THE SOURCE
WHERE ON A BLANK CANVAS
THE HOMELAND SHALL BE CREATED

OUR WORLD IN OUR IMAGE SHALL BE
WE SHALL SING FROM THE TOWERS
WE SHALL RISE TO THE ELDERS
WE SHALL HAIL FROM THE GRACELAND

FOR NOW THOUGH

SLUMBER
REVEL IN IT SPLENDOUR
CAST YOU MINDS TO SCAPES AFAR
DREAM
YES
THE KINGDOM AWAITS YOU
CHOSEN ONE
AWAITS YOU
CHOSEN ONE

ORBETHIA
