Track Name: Victory
Track Name: The Star Road
Forever landscapes of river and sun,
the home to all the faithless impure
Seen by those no longer of one,
for life they've left, no longer endure
The Star Road travels the endless sky,
marching to home the warriors roam
To halls of we, our faithful creed,
standing eternal amidst the golden leaves!

Aeons in peace, the star void sea,
guiding us forth to clear crystal keeps,
where gods make feasts, and horns overflow
with mead of gold, honey and song
Though we must leave, our time nears at last
know we now go to kingdoms avast
where fields ever grow in a gentle breeze,
and merry are we, we who walked the Star Road!

Dancing in autumn shades
where colors don't fade
and gladly sing
-hey-la-la-la-lay la lay-
orange as she dies
but only to rise
and brightly sing
-hey-la-la-la-lay la lay-

E'er the stories cry,
of astral night,
of glory and rhyme
Sing with me, eternally, far away
in lands of mist and leaves
As sun sets behind tears of pride,
the road to all revealed
The time to stay, fades away,
never to see the world,
lost in decay...
Track Name: Wilderfolk
These lands once kneeled
to a red khan so tall,
he claimed once to steal
all the stars from on high
His folk did not yield,
to woe, fear or steel,
yet time carries us
away from ye

No peer,
in history ice clear
Wandering through time,
with their gods and kings
Through dark of night
and summer ever bright
the clouds tell of those
who doubt Wilderfolk might!
Track Name: Thane of Swans
He seeks no mountain pass,
nor forests so great
as to forbid the lands to gather upon
a call of ancient seas to
carry us to where winds shall decree

No folk of the lands
Nor folk of the trees
Fate gives us seas
and ships set us free
Now all lies dead
stripped of last breath
flames to sunset
in time we forget...

He, he who stands before the lone tree,
he who holds the lock, chest, and the key,
glory waits for him,
as awesome as the setting sun,
jaded one, gently sink into the sun
And as the dawn sees the last king
never shall the Thane give unto him
the Cygnet horn shall blow,
Endless as the silver crow, evermore,
never see the hollow shores
Track Name: Dawn Avast
Dark wanes,
and the chill fades
We remain,
ever brave...

-Feel the roll of the thunder pass,
see the throe of the sunset past
Hear the song of the dawn avast!
Lo, the warm summer falls at last-

We wane,
and the will fades
Dark remains,
ever grey...
Track Name: Guardians
Track Name: No Tears for the Past
Track Name: Autumn Winds
Where the wails of war are gone, forever gone at last
the world is good, it grows, it springs to life
and shall endure

Where the howls of woe are lost in the breeze
now warm and dry,
and sings a sad tale of once before
on a dark, red night

And woe!

-Far away, there she waits,
with ire and bitter and doom!-
-Soon to fall, in red tempest,
and still I cry,
Why did I stay,
and drown in age,
drifting for years in silent rage,
those who stand by me will fall
and die alone,
in the Autumn winds

How the sun it sets blood red on a dusky Autumn night
the world it bleeds a violet blue,
a crown of stars and gloom
Track Name: Twilight
