Track Name: Demon Dreams
Walking! Through realms of the dead
Battered! By painful screams of the night
Frozen! As beasts lay in my path
Screaming! I hear them calling me

Waiting! For time to bring you down
Blackened! The forests lay silent
Fearless! Of the worlds consequence
Shattered! mankinds soul torn from reality…

Watching! a darkened maze un – fold
Broken! Souls of the woods eternal
Frost! Chills to the bone in me
Slaughtered! These are my demon dreams
Track Name: Gates To Eternity
I stand
At the gates to eternity
To leave this realm of sorrow

Through moonlit forests
Calling me
From beyond the gates
Cloaks my path
Calling in the wind from beyond the gates

Of the winter realm
Guard the gates
To eternity
Track Name: Upon My Throne
Upon my throne
I give commands across battlefields
In my kingdom
Watching battles from afar
Blackened fields
From where fires burn
The sound of battle
Echoes on these lands

From cold seas
The demons come with black hearts
Warriors steel
Strikes the soil of guarded land
From black horizons
The awakening glows on dark fields
The battle rages
On this frozen icy plain

The moonlit forests
Lay frozen in times of war
Dark landscape
Cursed for all eternity
Clashing of swords
Hear the screams on the wind
Walls of time
Locked down
Forever in battle
Track Name: Frozen In Time
Gathered by the hills
For the Moonlit Fog
In hand to light the path
From the realm of thor

In Time before time
Call me in the dark
Raging on forgotten lands
A warriors death awaits

Standing in a time forgotten
Walking through darkness eternal
