Track Name: Circling The Moon
Black Scorpion
Out to conquer
Crawled on burning sand
Parched as the summer
Across the lands
Without fear
Venomous from the moment of birth
To the edge of the earth!

Endless rainfall
Quenched the man’s thirst
Dived in the deepest
The mightiest ocean
Against the tide
Defying the current
Swam away from the shore
To the end of the sea!

Beek vina, bhay vina
krodh vina, lobh vina
vehm vina, shanka vina
khot vina, ant vina

Dhyaan mate, jeet mate
gyaan mate, swad mate
jor mate, shakti mate
budhdhi mate, kirti mate
Track Name: Towards The Horizon
See the dancing stars
How they laugh
As I exhale
Clouds of grey

They keep me floating
High above the sky
But don’t let me fly away

A glass of water
Is all I ask
To live this endless journey

A voyage that carries me
Away from you
And the skies
And the seas

I dream of all the fields
How they were crossed
While summer was burning

Surreal beauty
A state of bliss
I still cannot believe
To this day

But how cruelly
I was crushed
As the hand of time
Turned its wheel

And left me to mourn
The demise
Of all that we believed
To be real
Track Name: The Birth Of A Star
Onward moves the man who never fails
Beaten up by life, weighed down by chains
Destined to lose
King of all fools
The jester laughs aloud to hide his pain

Home is a now place I can’t return
To the warmth of the fire that burns
My quest for
Victory in war
Honour is that which a man must earn

It gets lonely, cold and dark
No angel, no god to draw strength from
I’m sheltered by the clouds
As the skies scream my name
And give me a new sun to rise to

Oh my god

Alone as the child who never prayed
A flower makes its place beside the grave
Defeated hope
A story untold
A boy who no one will come back to save

How I would love to be loved again
Shielded by your love from seasons of pain
Cremated one
Buried in thought
Evenings shelter memories from the rain

It gets lonely, cold and dark
No angel, no god to draw strength from
My kingdom will come tonight
With the crown and the throne
For eternity in flames I’m reborn
