Track Name: Om Tathagata
Om Tathagata

I see the coming forms, everything arises from within.
This place is cursed, I’m so withdrawn, deathless now awakened.
A breath so mighty, like the thunder of our beating hearts.
The Icchantika, a knowing truth tears us apart.

Om Tathagata

We’ll plunge the deeper depths, hear the chanting of the ancient words.
A thousand years will turn our minds, these eternal fires burn.
Death of a receiver,
The blooding of the rivers,
The melting of the clouds,
The immortal bows.

Om Tathagata

Death of a receiver,
The blooding of the rivers,
The melting of the clouds,
The immortal bows.
Track Name: Holy Lands
Holy Lands

Now there is only one, the lonely walker comes.
Embody the way of clouds, on drifting oceans son.
No one here knows my name, nobody has seen my face.
A pure light is sown, amongst this boundless space.

Take me to her.
My goddess lover.
Arms of my Mother.
Hold me your only son.

Rains keep pouring on, pilgrimage on water.
A heavy cascade of tears, falls from old Sumeru.
Grey hair covers our skin, these ancient trees still stand.
Death into timeless flow, this is the holy land.

Take me to her.
My goddess lover.
Arms of my Mother.
Hold me your only son.

He flows with the river, through mountains of snow.
Running through valleys, washing over stones.
Arms of the father, the love of all man.
Carried by nights wind, to these holy lands.
Track Name: Lion Rider
Lion Rider

This is our time, I know this is it.
I hear a thousand voices calling me home.
Walk with this love, a lions heart.
As we climb to the crest of the mountain.

I call this home.
You know it.
This is our home, our home.

And so beneath, a blood red sky.
Let it wash over me.
Pass through these gates, beyond the beyond.
Dissolve into a starless night.

I call this home.
You know it.
This is our home, our home.

Just like the colours, I see in my dreams.
This life it disappears.
My lion brother, with all of my love.
Go onward forever, always forever!
Track Name: Beyond The Skull
Beyond The Skull

Wind masters in this vastness grounded.
Beyond restraint, it can’t be eclipsed.
Iced water cutting into these feet
Spirits disappear, naked and nothing

Break my neck and my hands.
Through fire and quicksand.
Break my neck and my hands.
Through fire and quicksand.

Beyond the skull, nourished in darkness
Part the waters of this vastness grounded
The stars seeds, in silence ripened.
Dream illusion, Illumination.

Break my neck and my hands.
Through fire and quicksand.
Break my neck and my hands.
Through fire and quicksand.

Ten thousand hands of love.
Angels can never understand.
Devils they know nothing.
Your gods can’t comprehend.
Track Name: All I Am
All I Am

Born of the summer, this black cold river.
Rains down hard, A red moon burns with fire.

This throne of gold, bow down to me.
Ten thousand skulls, Zeus, my mother.

I journey to the ends of space, I piss upon the hands of time,
Now fly away to the east, I make love to a mountain.

Breathe so hard, these heavy stone wings fly.
With her eyes of pure gold and hair of snow.

I am a mountain,
I am a God,
These eyes of solid gold.
I am poor,
All I am is love.

I'll fly once more, crush every star in these heavens.
It comes, it goes, it will hold me no more

From star to star, this hall of kings.
By the river of the fire moon, see my reflections gaze.

I journey to the ends of space, I piss upon the hands of time.
Return east to my harems bust, feel love as I move like a mountain.

Drone of an ancient horn, Sounds of barking dogs,
No warmth for an elderly man, Under a sky so cold.

I am a mountain,
I am a God,
These eyes of solid gold.
I am poor,
All I am is love.

And with each step it takes me so far from home.
Now every mountain shall bow down to the sun.
Track Name: Keepers
Keepers

With whispers and hands bound,
you’ll be a believer.
So get down on your knees now,
I am your keeper.

Like a lie to the blind,
I’ll be your only one.
I, I, I, I’ll be your keeper in kind,
you shall want for none.
Track Name: Balrogs
Balrogs

Said I have the rage of 10 000 hells within me.
The potential of suicide within my grasp,
Theres a death soon near.
There's a movement in me, it drives me on so I go.
I go deep ever deeper, on to the towers of ice and snow.
The days they get darker, there is no night.
It will never rain, no way to see the light.

We are...
Deep, deep,
Deep into the mountains,
You'll find nothing but the wrath of things.
Deep, deep,
Deep into the realm now,
You'll find it there, in the darkest of caves.

Into the deepest of pools, a cold black water will rise.
Going deep ever deeper, all there is to know is the tide.
This dark water, it brings the quickest of deaths.
And of this cold air, it blows a lonely wind.

We are...
Deep, deep.
Deep into the mountains.
You'll find nothing but the wrath of things.
Deep, deep
Deep into the realm now.
You'll find it there, in the darkest of caves.

With so many to come, and so many now gone.
Along this ancient road, you’re always alone.
In the richest of earths, grow so many things.
They live forever, but you will never seed.
