LYRICS
 
2. The Trial
All my senses rebel
Under the scrutiny of their persistent gaze
Until you left her to the...???
A journey I'll never make again

For those who have accepted the burden of shame
For the innocent only words will remain
And our lives will be forced to ??? days
The perpetrators of our own bastard ways

All my senses rebel
Under the scrutiny of their persistent gaze
Until you left her to the...???
A journey I'll never make again

I stand accused of a thousand and one crimes
A witness to events that went to this point in time
With traditions enshrined our hands would be close tied
We'll never survive the great test of time

Deliver me from these feverish eyes
They threaten to advance our state of mind
I'm just an imposter, is that a small surprise?
A sense of guilt
A sense of guilt
A sense of guilt
A sense of guilt

 
4. Fortune
From ancient times to the present day
There have been those who have...???
So driven by the will to possess
Have pursued it to the very ends of the earth

We enter into it, it enters into us
We enter into it, it enters into us
As the wheel spins and turns from the words I seem to have learned
We enter into it, it enters into us

Fortune smiles upon our heads
???...cling to the wall and wait
How we believe we seem to forgive and forget
Immersed in the security of our view of our world

There are those of you among us
Barren waiting places and empty skies
They're...???...of our ways...???...the silent account
They will leave behind the...???...of a faceless child

We enter into it, it enters into us
We enter into it, it enters into us
As the wheel spins and turns from the words I seem to have learned
We enter into it, it enters into us

Fortune smiles upon our heads
???...cling to the wall and wait
How we believe we seem to forgive and forget
Immersed in the security of our view of our world

Fortune smiles upon our heads
Fortune smiles upon our heads

 
6. East Of Eden
I was told this in a distant land where tortured
souls have to fight together in anguish
And the scenes of the show are of a cruel and violent nature
Scenes of pain and cruelty are there to be seen
The arena, the town, the place was set for all to watch and see

I was told this in a distant land where the oppressor ruled with an iron hand
And a mission of saddened complacency left cold and emotionless by history
Scenes of pain and cruelty are there to be seen
All the while I should have known it was you killing me

Somewhere is the leader, the designs will never change
Vented through other's fear the world stops at the end of the hall
We watch the lifeforce fade away
And that's the price we shall have to pay

 
8. A Passage In Time
These silent chanmces pass one by
Who never knew of them at all.
Resigned to the hands of fate
We await her impending beck and call.
Until we return, paradise intered.
Spread your golden wings, let the sails unfurl.

These silent chanmces pass one by
Who never knew of them at all.
Resigned to the hands of fate
We await her impending beck and call.

Until we return, paradise intered.
Spread your golden wings, let the fires burn.

Well opportunities doors did not open wide.
The answers remain locked away inside.

So forced into labour we till the earth
To sow the seeds of our own rebirth.

As the days turned into years
Our faith overcame any doubts or fears.
Are there any doubts or fears?

In truth we had found the key.
It's application would unravel this mystery.

 
9. Wild In The Woods
Wild in the woods of love
We harm those whom we adore
Contrary to other intentions
We suffocate them in an alarming embrace

Listen child, try to understand
All is not what it appears to be in the world at hand
Your dreams are bought and sold for a price
The truth a burden to plead for the rest of your life

These paths that we've chosen
They lead to fear and despair
So we look from and experience without
the...???
All is hidden...???
We're all brothers and sisters in spirit

Wild in the woods of love
We harm those whom we adore
And contrary to other intentions
We suffocate them in an alarming embrace


 
12. In Power We Entrust The Love Advocated
Sail on silver wings
through this storm
what fortune love may bring
back to my arms again
the love
of a former golden age.

I am disabled by fears concerning which course to take.
For, now that wheels are turning,
I find my faith deserting me...
This night is filled with cries of
dispossesed children in search of Paradise.
A sign of unresolve that,
envisioned, drives the pinwheel on-and-on.

I am disabled by fears concerning which course to take.
When memory bears witness to
the innocence, consumed in dying rage!
The way lies through our love;
there can be no other means to the end,
or keys to my heart...
you will never find.

You will never find!
(The Garden of the Arcane Delights)

 
13. The Arcane
Here in the garden
of the arcane delights
dark shadows overwhelm us
and and we become blind.

Blind to the needs of
those who would be free
from the breath of fear
and the prisons of the mind

ahhhh...

Amidst the throes of perplexity,
freedom moves amongst us
in her hand is held the seed

Extermination angels
stood beside the road
In violent retribution for
the seeds that we have sown...

ahhhh
