Track Name: Immensity
Diving in a soup of petrol
Bags are flying into the sea
Introducing a plastic plague
Into the trophic chain

Eating trash
Merged with the ocean
A great rage
Threatening them
Becoming tiny pieces
But never disappearing
Feeding us
With the food of death

Tons of oil
Are sailing the world
Riding the sea
Like a horse

While humanity sleep
Behind the mask
Our blindness
Is killing them

The only animal able to break
The equilibrium of the ocean
The only one who can’t see
The immensity of the sea
Track Name: The End of Ice
In this cold land
Where all is dressed in ice
A piece of white is ripped from his mother

Beginning its journey
Towards the unknown
Going only where the current wants

Floating on the water
Moving with the waves
Scraping the skin in this salty place

Far away from home
Going to the horizon
Feeling emptiness and seduction

And the calm
Becomes fury
My skin is flying
On the sea
A large water wall
Is sharpened by the wind

In a transparent layer I become
Most of me is melted
Remember the old times in sadness

However we have different ways
Our coexistence in this world
Will decide the future of both

Under a shining sun
Without a place to hide
It’s time to think about the past

We were a crowd
In a forgotten land
United by the eternal winter
Track Name: Chimera
In the wounds of the earth
So close, so far
Where pressure would crush us
Like a worm

More unknown than other galaxies
Beyond the reach of man
Where merciless nature
Is arrogant

Looking into the cold waters
Slips between nothing
Within the depth
With inert gaze

Older than creation
Full of luminescent life
Created by tectonic plates
Guilty of earthquakes

Safe from man
Invisible shape
White metal skin
Chimera of the sea

More unknown than the moon
In an alien world
Full of strange
Species
Track Name: My Stripes on Sadness
I feel fresh grass
Drops over me
The sound of leaves
The ground under my feet

A shallow river is flowing in my way
I can see lots of deer everywhere
Crouched in silence I’m stalking to kill
I decide who lives and dies

Blended with the jungle
Feeling the wind in my face
I make a great journey
The only way to survive

Blended with the jungle
Feeling the wind in my face
Under the same sun
Tens of miles to hunt

They follow me
They want to kill
They try to reach
Slave of my skin

They follow me
They want to kill
They get to reach
A bite and sleep

And my eyes are closed

Behind a door
I walk in circles
Inside a cage
Made by man

Surrounded by walls
Iron and ropes
Deprived of freedom
My stripes in sadness

My mind gets black
My mouth is hunger for blood
My claws need to harrow
My entrails are infected with rage
Track Name: Return of the Wolf King
When night falls
Beasts hide in their holes
When night falls
The wolf king howls

When moon shines
The animals run or die
When moon shines
The wolf king arises

When night arrives
We sharpen our knives
When night arrives
We go for their lives

When dawn comes
The killing is all done
When dawn comes
The wolf king is gone

We aren’t aware,
We do great harm
Is too late,
We fall like a swarm

The bodies of the wolves,
Piled into holes
The animals sigh,
Another kingdom comes

Now is full of deer
Eroding the land without fear
The river changes its form
And Yellowstone is gone

When night falls
Beasts come out of their holes
When night falls
You only hear moans

When moon shines
Deer run and cry
When moon shines
Noses and horns arise

Bring back the king
Said a fool
Release a wolf
And let him rule

Only the nature
Has the power to heal
To fix the damage
We did with our steel

The problem is solved
The wolf is back at home
The king is back at home
Track Name: Going to Extinction
Endless deforestation
Decades of burning coal and oil
Fertilizers and a farmer livestock
Are going to lead to extinction

Conflicts between nations
Food shortages will come
Floods, rainstorms and rising sea levels
Devastating the natural world

Climate change is here
There's no time to lose
No lies are believed
Open your eyes

Killing by faith, Money and race
We feel out of this world
In less than a century
We'll all be blown away

Degree by degree
The oceans are warming up
Year by year
We're digging the grave

While mother earth dies
We are fighting each other
For small things
Ignoring the real threat
Track Name: Elysium
So the old legend goes
The fire fox waves its tail
Caressing the mountains
Moonbeam on a winter flake

Along the artic,
Tribes from the forest wondered
If those magical skies
Would fall upon the Earth

All shades of colors
Dye snowy lands
Which have long witnessed this adrift show
Performed by the Earth and the Sun

Welcome the new spirits
And those long gone
Coming from narrow dangerous paths
Along heavenly regions

An omen for war
The Valkyries look for
The souls of the befallen

In a way, northern lights are nothing
But the gods, promise that their light
Will shine forever
In the everlasting sky
Track Name: Wardens of the Sea
An old man tells stories
About another time and distant lands

Where almighty men defied
The mother of life in the waters

And she wonders
When we will stop staining her waters

And she wonders
When we will stop this human waste

Demon of light, buried in the depths

One day we will pay our audacity
Monsters from the abyss will recover land and sea

Buried they wait to leave
And end our stupidity
Tired of waiting for us
We will die by our own hand

Forgotten, come back to life
Because we are the monsters of Gaia

Buried ones have returned so she arises
Entombing us in the deepest chasm

Nature always recovers
We are just a minute, she is eternal
We tried to kill our mother
We are just a cancer

Mother Nature Rises
Demon of light, buried in the depths

The lords in the deepest holes are coming for you
Track Name: The Awakening
When humanity forgets its role in the world
Nature awakens and the calm becomes the fury
Track Name: Black Storm
Plucking leaves from the forest
In a dark green battlefield
Everything in the wind way
Is jumping on the air

No sun, no light
Seems the end of your life
No escape, be afraid
You would like to disappear

Shining lights in the sky
Illuminate your eyes

When clouds collide
Helped by the wind

We can’t hide from the black storm
We are alone when night comes
We can’t run from the black storm
We are its prey when it falls

Like a flying river
Searching its ocean
Splashing the trees
With a strong rage

Drawing on the soil
An artwork in movement
Followed by the sound
Of noisy thunder

Without a place to hide
Feeling the wetness in your heart
With your weak body soaked
You feel the cold

In the middle of the storm
All the forces of nature
Have united to create
A symphony of destruction
Track Name: Witness
Crossing clouds
Furrowing the wind
From the sky
I can see the trees

Down in the forest
The river flows
Like a snake
Crawling on sand

With my black wings
Through the light blue
I open my eyes
I can see you

From deep dark green
Through the life blast
I am the watcher of the earth

Among red clouds
The mountains are drawn
With all its life
Escaping humanity

My feathers are witness
Of the unseen force
My eyes can see
The greatness of the earth

Up here I can feel
The exuberant tranquillity
That, centuries ago
Humanity felt

Feel the wind
Feel the fire
Down on the soil
Life is denied

Feel the wind
Feel the fire
Down on the ground
Live like a betrayer
Track Name: Oryx
Sand slides like molten gold
In a yellow mirror, reflecting the sun
Endless dunes in an eternal wave
Escaping the ground drawing themselves

Meanwhile we look away
Building another dimension

With the wind landscapes change
In this land, through the eyes of the Oryx
On a mountain of dust, among fire
In this red sky, the storm is rising

Meanwhile we look away
The end of an era is approaching

Sand
Splattering
Blinding
Wild

Desert
Invading the green coast
Increasing each day
Our dreamland
Is getting us to help

Quiet
Barren
Empty
Desolate

A never ending way
Along thousands of miles
Searching for
Our own annihilation

Meanwhile we look away
The end of days, the end of life

And everything disappears
Now the blue planet is yellow
There aren’t any chances left
Is too late
Track Name: Mesikämmen (bonus)
In the darkness of a day without sun
I see a light inside the forest
Slipping through the brush I find a lake
A spectral shape on the water

My darkest instincts fighting in my mind
I make my way to the shore
My breathing is faster than a bolt
I recognize a human hunter

The ancients
Are calling me
The spirits
Awake my fury
And they spark
The eternal flame

There’s mud in my fingers
I stumble with stones
Slide on gravel
I find my soul

With blood in my legs I turn around
I see the face of death
I growl like a demon of despair
He flees wounded with my paw

The ancients
Are calling me
The spirits
Awake my fury
My eyes spit fire
Injected in rage
