Chapter IV – Controlling Fire & Civilization

I can’t deny how much you’ve changed me
history is but a shadow revealed by your shine
minds transformed by your burning flame
beacon of hope, illuminating our path:
and so, our great journey began…

Now we have the tools to build our own future
everything is changing, and yet it seems the same
civilization is a spiral of eternal revolution

We fought the dark, our journey bore your mark
should we accept your gift or will your flame engulf us all?

Chapter V – Here and Now (The Present)

What pains have we endured, and what an agony
until united our minds
stood and faced the world, while painfully it dawned:
we’re quickly running out of time

So much inhuman effort, so much sacrifice
the breeze of change has swept away
and all the aspirations we carried from the past
betrayed by the wheel of time

How can I find back what I’ve lost?
How can my old innocence be restored?
How can I erase the mistakes I made?
How can I take back bitter words I said?

So many times I’ve been deceived by my false hopes
‘till life stripped them away from me
I sought and found you again, my precious lifeline
but time has changed how we feel

Epilogue – The End of the World

Sometimes I’m afraid that when I close my eyes
the whole world will disappear
Sometimes I’m scared, you know when I look at the stars
That I’m lost -and God! for real

Infinity, eternity
they leave me and fly far away,
only one thought tortures me:
I am lost in an immense, indifferent and strange world
and when I’m there, in my own hell
my heart cries loud for you

I hear the sound of horns, I see a beast appearing from the sea
it has ten horns and seven heads
looks like a lion, like a leopard it crawls
I stretch out my shaking hand
and touch the body of the dancing Shiva
I want to scream, but I can’t
instead I cry, shake and shiver

I want you, I need you
I can’t exist without you
Don’t leave me when I’m lost again
hold my hand and join me to the end of the world

Sometimes I really hope that the night never comes
the darkness scares me, you know
Sometimes when I feel that I finally reached the top
my castle of cards falls when the wind blows

I hear the peal, it’s the Big Crunch
in front of me there are two worlds
the one expands, but shuts again
the other one already I’ve lost

Each of its particles pursues its own way
I’m standing here and watch all this
I’m all alone, what can I say?

I lost you and I miss you
there is no life without you
Don’t leave me when I’m lost again
in this crazy race to the end of the world
