Track Name: Όταν Σβήνει το Κερί
Όταν σβήνει το κερί
προσευχομαι για τη θύμηση

Otan svinei to keri
Prosevhomai yia ti thimisi

Another day of mine goes by in time

For some the echo never fades
Tying them to future days
But some leave traces oh so faint
They live on in other ways

With breath held beneath ancient light
All the words become entwined
They spiral out into the night
They leave the world behind

And if the world shifted beneath our feet
Would we find our way back home?

We left all we could on the walls
Fire, wheel and blade all lay unclaimed
Track Name: Cranes Over Everest
The silence speaks for itself
Is this the way you hide from yourself?

Rains are bearing down on me
And the waves throw us down into the sea

Cold winds blow where ancient tongues are spoken no more
Track Name: Names Engraved
Carve your name, leave your mark
And I'll do the same

From the pillar that holds us all
To the farthest shores of Gaul
I leave my hands upon the wall

Buried beneath sand, time and war
All that we lived for must live to see days more

Pausing for a moment beneath ancient light
Just for a moment, beneath ancient light
Track Name: The Watcher In The Rain
Track Name: These Voiceless Shores
The walls crumble into the sea,
and stillness rings across the voiceless shore
The sun rises to find a sea emptied,
and filled with the tears of the few who were left to mourn

The shores of your sea run red

The blood ran as wide as the rivers that gave us life
But none will ever know what has been lost to time
