There is a mountain to the south, towering over the sea like a god over its people. It is something I never wish to climb. Many have spoken of the spiritual presences that can be heard from its summit. Some claim it to be the voices of spiritual beings: ghosts, apparitions... Yet all those who attempted to seek these spirits out in the past never returned. These creatures shall never govern my fate. I am a seafarer, and therefore put my trust in he who rules the waves. Even if I shall die tomorrow, let it be at the bottom of the sea – not by the hands of some cosmic spirits. Slieau fo coodagh kay Sheayn ny Feaynid Geayll oo ee ny dyn Lught ny sleigtyn, abbyr eh!

Maelstrom 04:10
On one Samhain's Eve A ship left its home Setting sail for lands beyond Beguiled by their fate And tempted by dreams Their mortality cast aside Once on open sea The maelstrom took hold Engulfing all in its path It smothered the ship No man left behind Spared no mercy for any soul Feared by all who sail Claiming so many Disarray and death Stirred up in its wake

Time is short, I count the days What was said will never fade So much done, now all in vain Take a look at the last spring rain The sky grows dark, lightning strikes Vengeful force of nature's wrath Fortunes lost, men's wealth fades Oceans rise and empires fall! Time will fall apart Life will turn to dust Soothsayer's prophecy At the end of the world Have I worn this life too thin? Dissolution, this can't be so! Unearthly tale, fly away from me I refuse to see it through! The end is nigh, I face the facts What was said – the awful truth Time is short, the days are gone Only night, eternal darkness! Time will fall apart Life will turn to dust Soothsayer's prophecy At the end of the world

Bloodstained battlefield Only a handful of men survive Yet still victorious; Land defended! Eastbound their haven lay, Far beyond the mountain peaks Chose to take the higher road To get back home Stoke the fires and stack the barrels high, Guests have arrived and they're here to stay! This is the tale of the horsemen of the vale, The last men alive and the land's brigade! Winter has a cruel heart, Hindering the soldiers' way Black clouds and billowing snow Brewed around them Yet they still carried on, Through the snow and the raging winds, Fighting the elements To get back home Stoke the fires and stack the barrels high, Guests have arrived and they're here to stay! This is the tale of the horsemen of the vale, The last men alive and the land's brigade! One single light appeared Gleaming from within the dark Marking a tavern bare on the mountainside Aided by those inside, Taking refuge from the storm Before they set off again To get back home Stoke the fires...

Coming from all sides, Fighting for their lives, Spears and arrows fly! Fire burning bright, Screams and chaos rife, Underneath the sky! Sent from his homeland Across the frozen plains Sent without warning His freedom to maintain Seven thousand men to fall, Seven thousand men to die Born to fight to the last warrior Relentless, brave and bold Sword in hand, he fights alone, unafraid Fields with slaughtered men and soldiers Fueling hatred in his soul 'Till the aftermath they'll taste his blade! Flags are flying high, Death is always nigh In this war-torn lands! Enemies closing in, But he won't give in, 'Till the end he'll stand! Sent from his homeland To defend his kingdom's reign, Fighting without ceasing, But alas, he fights in vain! "Seven thousand men to fall All of them sent to die Upon this bloody battlefield I will surely lie The enemy shall know my name After their sons are slain But until the aftermath They'll taste my broken blade!" Seven thousand...

Wind of the air, my love's on the sea Horo y ree y ro, horo y ree y ro Geay jeh'n aer, ta ma graih er y cheayn, Horo... Make the weather calm and fair Horo... Shonest, Leodest and the Raa, Grant good luck and fortune to him, Health and peace and length of life, Horo... Shonest Leodest as y Raa, Cur aigh vie as maynris da, Slaynt as shee as eaysh dy vea, Horo...

Yn fastyr shoh va dorraghey Lesh sterrym as sheean As y gheay ren ee sheidey As gatt eh y cheayn. Time is passing oh so slowly, No proof of morning ever to return Blanketed by a deathly veil Both land and sea at the mercy of the storm Slowly poisoning my troubled mind Keeping me perpetually blind! Facing the ever-revealing truth As the darkness finally subsides Breaking through this icy cage I'll find a way to keep his song alive Slowly poisoning my troubled mind Keeping me perpetually blind! Slowly...

Give me one reason To leave this all behind The path is clear One reason To reach a peace of mind Deprived of what I held most dear! Take me away, Let me be free, Show me the way To Infinity I need no reason To leave this all behind There's only sorrow here No reason To want to try and find An escape from this pain and fear! Take me away, Let me be free, Show me the way To Infinity "It was so dark, black, no hill could we see. Straight over us the waves were foaming; how dreadful it was, with tempest and mist, to run before the wind to the land. Terrified by the sea with storm and uproar, the waves just like mountains were rising. During all that time, the sea breaking white, we could not see the port that we desired." I must find the strength To see this one to the end, Help me find a way To my journey's end! Take me away...

"Ushtey milish liorish soilshey yn cast: nyn argidas airh, as cha gaill mayd eh dy bracht. Eaish rooin, m'inneen! Tar neese as iu dy haie!"

Now my mind has changed Behind those fragile eyes Never-seen apparitions Life a mere fragment Past feelings dissolve before me The touch of cool and cleansing fires Sinking memories disappear To the Sounds of Infinity There I will see him once more Both of us one entity Escaping from our roles In our simplistic play Knowing that our universe Is forever expanding The mysteries of life explained Through the Sounds of Infinity Aided by life unseen, Through the Sounds of Infinity!
