Track Name: A Distant Land
Should we place our faith in those dreams?
Through the tears and through the screams
With our hearts bursting at the seams
We bid farewell to those crumbling regimes
Please come with me just take my hand
We’ll leave this Earth behind for a distant land
Please come with me just take my hand
We’ll leave this Earth behind for a distant land
Is it childish to believe in a fantasy?
Is it childish to place all your faith in those dreams?
Is it childish to believe in a fantasy?
Is it childish to place all your faith in those dreams?

Is it childish to believe in a fantasy?
Is it childish to place all your faith in those dreams?
Place your faith in those dreams
Through the tears and through the screams
With our hearts bursting at the seams
We bid farewell to those crumbling regimes
Track Name: Cosmic Internet v2.0
Mainstream science cannot explain,
the universe and the human brain
Many nights I have tried,
reach into my mind and touch the other side

Status quos must be rejected,
torn apart and resurrected
Minds and souls astral projected,
we Converge and are intersected

Use your head and draw your own conclusions,
don’t buy into their mass delusions
Close your eyes, set your mind free,
ride on a wave of cosmic energy
Track Name: Deus Ex Machina
It is as they say... that God loved mortal man more then any Angel. But have you asked yourself why that is? With his infinite power and wisdom, why did he make you so weak, the span of your existence so short, the scope of your perception so narrow? Your love of God Is as a child loves his mother, or more aptly as a dog loves his master. A pure love born out of ignorance. Mortals accept death as an inevitability, because they know nothing else, every generation before them has grown old and died. Content to live as their fathers did, to ponder the same questions, to dream the same dreams, to fight the same pointless wars against each other. To pray that their souls live on forever. But this speck of light you call the universe has never been eternal, I know this better then anyone, better then any creature born from his light. I alone know the futility of his Crusade against the darkness, I have seen the universe end countless times. I have seen billions of worlds die, stars burn out, devoured by darkness... All the souls in your heaven torn to shreds, over and over... an endless cycle of death and rebirth. I was the first Angel, perhaps it was out of his loneliness and despair that I was allowed to retain my memories and soul... Each time, i was reborn to fight again, to lead his armies into battle. I was the only one who saw it coming, I was the only one who saw how weak he truly was. This time I couldn't bear to see everything end the same way. They had the audacity to call me a traitor, But it doesn't matter how they remember me, if I fail only God and I shall know the truth... That Lucifer was the only one with the strength and conviction to stand against the old ones... The only one willing to fight when God Himself has abandoned all hope.
Track Name: Heaven's Gate
Hold on tight to your Father's Sword once so white and ornate
Forged in the Light of The Machine -The Blade called Heaven's Gate
The 9 Dimensions are tearing asunder
While these False Kings Rape and Plunder
stained with blood and gore from the slaughter
dripping wet in the hands of his daughter

In the darkness of my bedroom, I‘m consumed by misery, rage and gloom. You will fall under my spell, I’ll bring you down and drag you through hell. I never wanted anything this much. But I destroy everything that I touch. Lying awake with my eyes shut, tore down my kingdom in the name of a slut.

Track Name: Fight a Million Battles
Out here at the end of time, Beyond the creator’s sight. Paying penance for her Father’s crime, In the darkness before the light.

I will fight a million battles in your name, earn the right to Heaven’s Gate. If it takes me a hundred thousand years to be forgiven, I can wait
Track Name: I'm Not Just Another NPC / Memories of Her No Longer Guide My Sword
Standing on the ledge, I see the blue sky.
I've found the strength that I need to let you die.
I've been dead since the fall of Earth.
This is the tale of Adam's rebirth.

I’ve written this song a thousand times
Every line was scripted, written into your program
Every word thought out in advance, every notion preconceived
What if I told you that I created this universe just for you?
Would you let it burn?
I would die for you again and again
But I was only playing a game, going frame by frame

Would you still tell me that you loved me?
What if I told you that you were an NPC?
Would you stay with me, just another NPC

I want to live my life free, I’m not just another NPC

Standing on the ledge, I see the blue sky.
I've found the strength that I need to let you die.
I've been dead since the fall of Earth.
This is the tale of Adam's rebirth.
I've spent ten thousand years trapped in endless night.
Now i'll open my eyes and embrace the light.
I've faced my demons and i've severed the cord,
Memories of her no longer guide my sword.
Track Name: Rage, Quit.
I let you go, so long ago
Nobody was supposed to know
No one but you... yeah, it's all true
You broke me down and I broke you too

Left behind, where you belong
you never heard a single song
...and i was right, and you were wrong...
but you never heard the fucking song

I've wondered what it was all for
you never got my metaphor
what a shame, we're both to blame
'cuz it was all just a fucking game
Track Name: Spirits of New Dubuque: Part 2: Back to Earth, for now... I guess
Between the fits of madness and the hits of bongs - I wrote these lyrics, Yeah, I wrote these songs... I've seen the chaos when everything ends and I've outlived all of my old friends.
I pushed it down into a black hole, but they were intertwined with my immortal soul.
I had to go back to that Earth I once hated... being a God is fucking over-rated. Yeah, being immortal is nothing but stress, so it's back to Earth, for now... I guess
Track Name: Fighting Some Kind Of Giant Monster From Space
The peasants freak out and start to flee
as a giant monster rises from the sea
Its tentacles lash out from the shore - the soldiers cut them off but it just grew more

We must protect all these innocent lives, using time-based powers and our mystical knives. The peasants cried out "please, don't let it harm me" to all the soldiers in the Prince's army

seems like earth is under attack, what the fuck I just got back
I thought I was done with this retarded crap I just wanna go home and take a fucking nap

an astral beast from beyond the stars who destroyed his own world and now he's after ours, we've enlisted the help of some crazy wizard who arrived on earth in a mysterious blizzard

The peasants freak out and start to cry as the monster fires laser beams from its third eye - this thing just does whatever it likes 'cuz it's super huge and its covered in spikes

seems like earth is under attack, what the fuck I just got back
I thought I was done with this retarded crap I just wanna go home and take a fucking nap

an astral beast from beyond the stars who destroyed his own world and now he's after ours, we've enlisted the help of some crazy wizard who arrived on earth in a mysterious blizzard

He came to earth with an outrageous story that he tried to explain but it started to bore me. To be honest, I didn't really care - 'cuz i dug his style and his sweet blue hair

that's a really awesome story bro, so you're from Dubuque a long time ago? Some day I'm gonna serve the king, but you should really help me kill this thing

The peasants freak out and start to puke, as the creature's blood sprays over Dubuque - this wizard really must be the shit, 'cuz he killed that monster in a single hit

an astral beast from beyond the stars who destroyed his own world and now he's after ours, we've enlisted the help of some crazy wizard who arrived on earth in a mysterious blizzard

He came to earth with an outrageous story that he tried to explain but it started to bore me. To be honest, I didn't really care - 'cuz i dug his style and his sweet blue hair
Track Name: Modern Wizardry
I came back to Earth through the astral gates to an ancient kingdom called The United States. I came home (to Earth) looking for some answers, but my home town of Dubuque was controlled by necromancers. So I teamed up with this noble prince who was looking for help so he was easy to convince, and he had to power to manipulate flames, and was somehow related to my old pal James

He seemed pretty cool and his name was Sol, then he pulled out some herb and we smoked a bowl. He told me necromancers used a magic ring to enslave his father, the fallen king. They ruled the land through might and fear, So now my mission seems pretty clear. In the wake the Blue Star earlier this year the prophets spoke of me coming here.

Things wont be like they were before. We've always dreamed of something more. The huddled masses yearning to breath free and embrace modern wizardry. Give me your tired, your sick and poor, as I lift up my lamp to the golden door.
Track Name: In Defense of Heaven on Earth
She's dispatching each zombie with a single slice
Down into the dungeon with Agent Price
With her deadly precision and measured grace, her knives dancing across both time and space
Dealing lethal justice at the edge of her blade against an army of the mindless, dead and decayed
All they ever see is a sudden blur When it comes to battle, she's a connoisseur.

Deep within Ezekiel's lair, a monument to death and despair. Price and I, along with Luna and Sol continue downward towards our ultimate goal. Our party's skill is unsurpassed, there may be hope for peace at last. This army amassed built of ghosts from our past, they fall to our blades and the spells that we cast.

In defense of all those lost
We'll set things right no matter the cost
In the tenth chapter of this story
We'll restore Earth to her former glory
Track Name: Sapphire Blue
That night, staring at the stars - will we ever have what's ours?
We were so alone - destined for the throne
Pray to make us whole - your Luna and Sol
Hanging by a thread - alive amongst the dead

That night, staring at the stars - will we ever have what's ours?
We were so alone - destined for the throne

That night lit up sapphire blue - that was when we knew, there was still some hope - that we we could make it through
We spent so long in hell - since our kingdoms fell
In a sapphire light - the sky had never shone so bright

That night, staring at the stars - will we ever have what's ours?
We were so alone - destined for the throne
Pray to make us whole - your Luna and Sol
Hanging by a thread - alive amongst the dead

(Their eyes went wide as a tiny speck of sapphire flickered to life, blue light began to expand outward from the newborn star like a halo. The widening circle of light passed over nearby stars, for an instant each star grew brighter and suddenly winked out of existence as cerulean death rippled from the sapphire speck tossed into a sea of obsidian. Thousands of stars were instantly obliterated as the gate to the astral plane collapsed. Just beyond the expanding outer edge of the azure ring was a flicker of purple, a violet rift. The seven kingdoms of Neo Valhalla had entered the Extrazone of their way to Earth. The birth of the blue star would usher in a new golden age of magic. It was time for Luna and Sol to fight back and reclaim the Fallen throne)

We've spent ten-thousand years - crying lonely tears
You left us in the dust - doing what we must
Standing hand-in-hand - we dreamed of something grand
They cast us down to hell - when our kingdoms fell

That night, staring at the stars - will we ever have what's ours?
We were so alone - destined for the throne
That night lit up sapphire blue - that was when we knew
In a sapphire light - the sky had never shone so bright
Track Name: Fighting For My Friends
Amethyst to Sapphire Control Tower, Sapphire, do you copy? "This is Sapphire, copy" exiting the Extrazone in 3, 2, 1, mark. Focus crystals at 4% disengage shielding interlock. Approaching Earth's gravitational field in T-minus 5 minutes. Divert all remaining power to life-support and propulsion. All squads prepare for combat deployment in T-minus 5 minutes. Shielding Interlock has been disengaged. Good luck, James... see you on Earth. Amethyst out. "Copy that, thanks man..."

You were always there to clean up my mess - the first call when I'm in distress
We earned those scars - fighting amongst the stars
You said "goodbye" I said "see you later" when you left me there in search of the creator
I watched it all burn - but I knew you'd return

I heard you were back, maybe it's a rumor - but I miss your smile and your sense of humor
Things just haven't been the same - since you've been gone it's been pretty fucking lame
I was always filled with pride to call you my friend and fight by your side
I will gladly join your campaign - even if everybody else thinks you're insane

In the beginning of this war - I didn't know what we were fighting for
I don't care how this ends - 'cuz now I'm fighting for my friends
Track Name: Our Father's War
When our lives were looking bleak
You just kissed us on the cheek
You forgave us when we lied
and wiped away our tears we cried
You told us it would be okay
and that you'd win this war some day
You would make the bad guys pay
and we trust in everything you say

We've been training everyday
In pretend battles when we play
We wish we could come along
Maybe when we're big and strong
We will practice everyday
learn new spells while you're away
We promise to make you proud
and help you fight when we're allowed

Please, make sure that no one cries
Please, kill of all the bad guys
Please, don't let my friends get hurt
or go to sleep buried in dirt
We can't wait anymore
To join our father's war
Far too young to hold a blade
But please, let us - we're not afraid
