Track Name: Eis Ho Theos!
“Egypt will be forsaken, and the land which was once the home of religion will be left desolate, bereft of the presence of its deities (...)

O Egypt, Egypt, of thy religion nothing will remain but an empty tale, which thine own children in time to come will not believe; nothing will be left but graven words, and only the stones will tell of thy piety.”

Corpus Hermeticum, To Asclepius III

And so the gods will depart from mankind, a grievous thing!, and only evil angels will remain, who will mingle with men, and drive the poor wretches by main force into all manner of reckless crime, into wars, and robberies, and frauds, and all things hostile to the nature of the soul. (...) Religion will be no more; all things will be disordered and awry; all good will disappear.
Track Name: Raise Your Flask
Can you feel they’re increasing in strength?
Winds of change blowing everywhere
A new era starting again
Pillars of Antiquity falling in

This long pilgrimage
Let me explain to you
How the faith of a man can break
Through
Walls of an empire
And leave sages mute
So raise your flask!
Turn your water into wine

Travelling to our Holy Lands
Leaving our footprints in the sand
Skeptic ones want to punish us
We turn their violence into dust

This long pilgrimage
Let me explain to you
How the faith of a man can break
Through
Walls of an empire
And leave sages mute
So raise your flask!
Turn your water into wine

You can try to defame us
With your lying tongue
You can persecute us all
With your empty force
You can hunt us just like rats
And tear us apart
We believe in what we are
We won’t betray our hearts

In this long pilgrimage
Let me explain to you
How the faith of a man can break
Through walls of an empire
And leave sages mute
So raise your flask!
Turn your water into (wine)

In this long pilgrimage
We find our paths
Romans dealing with an internal
Fight against themselves
And that’s all that they have
So raise your flask!
Just be proud of who you are
Track Name: Agora
Long time ago
Our gods taught us how to live
We worshiped them all
Rewarding us with their love
We prospered and grew
The gods changed and then renewed
They kept giving life
And guiding us with their light

Now our gods are dying
And we cannot save them
They are being replaced
It’s all over now
The old gods are falling
Killed by our own hands

Our empire is weak
A new faith is getting here
At first there was peace
From Egypt to ancient Greece
One God grew above
With promise of endless love
We wanted relief
And gave up our old beliefs

Now our gods are dying
And we cannot save them
They are being replaced
It’s all over now
The old gods are falling
Killed by our own hands

Too late we realized
His love isn't what thought
We try to be free
and workship the gods we need
They hate and condemn
if we don't obey his laws
but we can't go back
with our god's blod in our hands

Now our gods are dying
And we cannot save them
They are being replaced
It’s all over now
The old gods are falling
Killed by our own hands

No, no escaping
No, no denying
We have failed our gods
No, no escaping
No, no denying
We have killed our gods our gods

Dying as they fade away
Track Name: Nebet I'h
Raising her arms towards the night,
the pharaoh prayed:
"Mother Nut, give me strength so I can forget"
Moonlight tempered the gaunt face of
the queen,
The one who once was called:
"Beauty of the rosy cheeks".

"They've killed my brother sun,
darkness invades my heart"
And that day she promised herself,
She would carry out her vengeance.

Patiently like the spider which spins its web,
She designs her evil plan
Silently like the panther when is going to hunt,
She plays with the murderer's life

Noble guests of queen Nitocris are coming in,
she had invited them to a stunning party
It seems they are confined in an underground room,
The only witness of the scene is the enchanted moon

"What surprise is waiting for us?"
A naive vassal dares to ask
But his words bounce in the dark,
'cause they have fallen in her trap...

"I only accepted the crown to have all of you in here,
so remember my lover brother and Merenra while i show you,
the real power of the night dame: NITOCRIS"

Water fills the room and gets into their throats,
music symphony of moans
With a warm smile she contemplates her night,
while she hurls herself into the fire
No more sickness, no more desire to avenge
The moon joins her brother, the sun
Track Name: St. Thais
Long ago and far away
A story you won’t forget
a sinner and her path to faith
and how she would become a saint

Full red lips
brings you to your knees
with her smile she charms
she is all you want
For a price you can
make her yours
one night full of lust
turns your soul to dust

She's St. Thais
gorgeous courtesan
with her charms
she will make you lose your mind
if you pay she will grant your wish
she will do, anything you please

One day a monk goes to her
to make her repent her ways
but he was already late
to god her soul she has pledged

Every night
she goes to her knees
but this time she prays
of her sins repents
Into church
she has been embraced
because she has proved
she has changed her ways
Track Name: Era Of Martyrs
As the time goes by
The darker becomes this night
Invading our own hearts
Is that who we are?
We’ve been crucified
for belonging to a second class
Nailed in our own ground
Are we free at last?

Under our moon
Staring at each other
Always been prepared to fight
Full of hate and
Empty of senses
Scared of the things we don’t know

Since the sun has gone
Demons knock, knock, knock on the door
Asking every soul:
“Are you your brothers’ protectors?”
Stay away from them
Don’t repeat the story of Cain and Abel
One met a cruel end
The other one dig his own grave

Under our moon
Staring at each other
Always been prepared to fight
Full of hate and
Empty of senses
Scared of the things we don’t know

Under the sunrise
Heavy mist was fading
So we took the blindfords off our
Eyes deceived
Sins defeated
They’ll never fool us [again]

Under sunlight
We embrace each other
So we have discovered we are
Sons of the same land
Brothers by birth
We’ll never move on alone
