PromethIA 05:19
A feeling like a wailing siren Luring me with its uncanny gleam But with every try to catch the light It fades away, evaporates! What is left? A glimpse of the glory A transparent halo in visible crystals Dust in the wind An answer looms beyond the thought Unthinkable but realized In a mindless blink of a lidless eye The blindness binds the wise With hands to hold unbearable desire Inflicting wounds thet do not bleed Process of healing neverending Disease hungers those who feed How can I comprehend this? What will I understand? Without a guiding line defined Eyes wide blind An answer looms beyond the thought Unthinkable but realized In a mindless blink of a lidless eye The blindness binds the wise Seeking what's hidden behind the truth Unthinkable but realized In a mindless blink I am the wanderer of eternal roads Conform to the law of now To find the missing pIAce Become the path you walk on To fulfill the PromethIA

Nouse luontoni lovesta Haon alta haltiani Kiven alta auttajani Pue päälle palava paita Nouse luontoni lovesta Railohosta ruhtinaani Sotisia sortamahan Vastuksia voittamahan Nouse luontoni lovesta Kalliosta kuninkaani Merehestä mestarini Kuin nousee jumalan ilma Rise from the womb of the Earth Surge through the raging Waters Out of the pyre of blazing Fire Ascend like the Wind of god We have the power We have the force Flowing through our hands Occulting from our heads IA! IA! IA! The torrent of primogenic force Boils and coils up the spine Flesh resonates with the divine Waiting to burst through the mind The Serpent with seven curves Now instilling power into the crown Asks you Will you fly with the spiral god of the sky? Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse Nouse IA With opening of the gates Rivers of life rush into your veins Empowering aura all around May the Power flow unbound We have the power We have the force Flowing through our hands Occulting from our heads We have the power We have the force Flowing through our hands Occulting from our heads IA! IA! IA! IA! IA!

Behold the faces of yourself unveil The haunting waves of your past emerging The bald eagle will not fly until lovers collide Sickness in you bursting out, purify Serpents Trying to lead you away from your pain Revealing Wounds that never see the light of day Give in! Confront the darkness of your spirit! In the end one question chokes the stream of life Who’s the one who perceives you? Who’s to find inside? Into the river you must dive To expose the lie And when you make it to the end You’ll know You’ll die Serpents Trying to lead you away from your pain Revealing Wounds that never see the light of day Just give in! Confront the darkness of your spirit!

Azatua Climb down from the trees Azatua Rid us of disease The sickness grows strong in this one Its roots reaching deep beneath the feet of our souls Vines penetrating the core of the bones Drones in the head in unbearable tones But where does it stem from Where is this rotting spirit pest from Have you been cursed by the visions of the night Given a blight by a witch of evil might Curse her who conceived with the northern wind! Deep in the forest there lives a spirit Which holds the power to heal any wound Out of the burrow, the womb of the Mother, I ask you to rise! And bring your brother, the fiery brother from the black hut of Tuoni To swallow the fire, to blaze away the evil! I have the claw of a bear Gaze that has set ablaze the fears of a thousand men Roar louder than a thunderstorm Sworn to dispel the demonborn I tear and rend, I rip and wrench I evulse and wrest, I expulse the pest A writhing mass of spiritual chaos in these hands Fangs of the fire, vaporize the bane! Praised be the name of AZA -TUA! You will never flee alive! Curse her who conceived with the northern wind! Far from the depths of the well hidden tracks I must fetch the stolen fragment of soul Guide me Shadows of the Great Spirit in these trails of the dead! And thus the raven speaks: “Down, deep, you must dive beneath You must rise through the twilight And reach behind the skyline of your mind” Know that the end of the world as you know it Is but an edge of another one Only those who’ve left all behind Can cross the line Now follow the sun! Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down... Through the smallest of holes until a cold shiver runs up and down the spine Beyond the gates of burning light, past the long road bristling with knives And when you reach the roots of time as dead be disguised ‘Cos In order to cross the dark waters one can not show any signs of life A second of this air A lifetime of constant despair Unnatural footmarks on the ground Uncanny howling of hounds An old woman approaches me But I’m halted by the spirit guides "Never reveal your real name Under strange chthonian skies" Pulsating drowsiness calling me To rest in the bed of burning steam Sinking down into the streams Of the everlasting dreams A conspicuous being among the dead Clinging onto the last drip of consciousness I inhale what I've come for And slither towards the light A blow of life Reborn in white Yet darkness throws A shade on the soul

I used to have insignificant dreams But once they lead me to fell a tree As it fell, out from its roots came a man He told me Well my friend I’m a man, who came out from the roots of a tree, Whence since the times of old Have been growing the masters of disease All you ever need to know Is here within this hole Take my hand and I’ll take you down Through the ground Through the spirits of the Seven Earths Men will lose their minds Some will just start to sing, others run away and die, But those, who meet the Spirit of Madness Will begin to shamanize Making magic for the insane Bewitching the deranged He took me far beyond the borders of strange And teased me with his questions weird The answer will speak in the silence, If your fate’s to fall into trance Through the spirits of the Seven Earths Men will lose their minds Some will just start to sing, others run away and die, But those, who meet ME, the Spirit of Madness Will begin to shamanize Making magic for the insane Bewitching the deranged

Death, the birthmark of the chosen one Imminent, soon to be actualized A formality of an initiation Of an indispensable vocation I’m between two flames One to burn, one to illuminate Resisting this divine election Would only lead to suffering By my will I choose death The Black Shadow Comes into me I look into the eyes of pure fear Only to see my reflection 9000 sons of pestilence Eating me alive Tearing me up with voracious greed Until the core is revealed Thrice I’m skeletonized Reincorporealized As the Cosmic Smith reforges me Bones reinforced with Iron Sealing my bond between the worlds By my will I choose death The Black Shadow Comes into me I look into the eyes of pure fear Only to see my reflection Standing in suspension On a bridge between the Worlds The Shades are crying for me to return Those are the ghosts that should be forgotten
