lyrics

(Extract)

I write these lines, knowing this is my last night,
I'm afraid of what will come... Behind...
One survivor of 25, shattered I arrived...
I think that something's followed me...
Its here...
We awoke something there...
In the depths of the Earth,
In the chasms of stone...In the galleries...
Unfortunately, My thirst of knowledge,
Became a terrible evil for mankind...

Famous scientist and an authority,
On ancient inscriptions...
A substantial inheritance will finance the mission...

After many years, at last I found the sign,
A sinister trace of certain ancient cult.
And hypnotized I read the forgotten words,
All lost in rotten books... Invocations.
Then I caught a thread, a thread made of lies,
Hidden in the labyrinth of abandon...
But a clear mark for my trained mind,
I will be the first, I will be the One...

If these books are right,
I know exactly where to find
There where others failed I will win the fight...
Years of plans, thousands of notes...
Showing me that at last the key was mine,
I wanted to capture one of these beings,
Changing forever the world as we know,
These creatures half fish - half reptile...
They couldn't ever beat the modern man...

Then I learned about the Sleeping Ones,
Waiting down in the abyss...
...hidden since the sun was young,
Dreaming with their time to come...

And every night while we read the maps,
We hear the call... Navigating...
As I dreamed.. we went there,
To the south - Under unknown stars...

With a strong conviction...
I hired a superb team of experts...
But I didn't comprehend the magnitude,
Of that quest...

Failure, Failure, Failure, Failure...

We arrived plenty of glory,
Plunged in destiny,
Right to the abyss of the night,
I didn't care how old were these symbols of gods,
Carved in stone...

But then I was convinced of my victory,
I solved the mistery...
In a land near of the pole,
Out of the sight of human eyes...

We arrived plenty of glory,
Plunged in destiny,
Right to the abyss of the night,
I didn't care how old were these symbols of gods,
Carved in stone...
