Look past what your mortal eyes can see Through the blind eternity Break the earthly limits of the flesh Set your spirit free afresh Tall and mighty, made of primal haze Crimson woven into gold All existence, dreams, the fate of all The Pillars of Creation hold And now you understand it all The Pillars’ riddle and their call And once you’ve seen it, There’s no turning back, You’re endless as your soul A secret star, a shining gem, Divine, a regal night sky diadem The vault of heaven welcomes another god Through ethereal guidance I find myself Among the most exalted of beings From my new seat In the azure fields, I see Countless new worlds Reveal yourselves to me
Seven 06:45
Seven cities burn in bright blue flame Scattered ash, the scars remain Thousand years have passed and still they stand Tales engraved into the sand Haunting men in haven, Innocence made leaven Seven false kings roam the land See a woman pale as snow Silent come and silent go See a man without a face Move like ghosts from place to place Seal the moon behind the doors of stone, Nameless demons in their throne Sing a song to perish, your doom will be garish Do not speak the bloody name When your bright sword turns to rust Seal the door, from blood and gore Hated, hopeless, sleepless, sane Chandrian, Chandrian Run, the heathen fiends, they come Swept by shadow, going numb And, in graceful sin, they're gone None will draw a breath by dawn I, can ever feel, cold sweat An image I cannot forget When, his eyes are black, as crow The endless wind will cease to blow As they walk the silent path, Driven by the ancient wrath, Gathered by your heresy alone Treading by the light of moon, To bestow the mortal boon, Sevenfold the hangmen you denied As the noble healer aches in pain All must pay, night and day Hated, hopeless, sleepless, sane Chandrian, Chandrian
Others I have known, Seemed to overlook my pain In the depths of the smoke, I found it, The refuge that was gold to me Should I take her to the new realm, Let her to my soul, Maybe she will understand She will be my queen, In the haze of my creation Together we'll have The nightlands I have taken you to the new realm Let you to my soul How could I have failed you? How can you simply burn to coal? All is nothing but a dream
I see them falling I fear my own demise A thorax, pierced by the last blade, Ending the hoax of undeath Consuming stagnation extending, Clutching every breath You have not been forsaken It is I who lies in wait For your descent I am he who shows you kindness Should you ever rise to the kill again As I silently wither My demon subsides And my kin, hear my laughter Now I depart, Forever to dust
Hireath 09:45
As my home burned to ash And the flames claimed that silenced grove The wind was dry, under the crackling sky The day I lost my place in this world We walked the four corners Weaving dreams alive Creating war and love and magic Stories untied Your amethyst eyes, pleading belle cries Drew me into your tranquil realm, of violet skies Let me stay for a while Let me feel the warmth Shadows have come now With fire, through branches Like arrows, piercing my soul I'm fleeing them ghosts Of unborn nightmarish truths I shall stay no more, stay no more I shall seek my home, now Nothing awaits me, and still I return to the same old place Peace has eluded my path For far too long Nothing awaits me, and still I return to the same old place Peace has always eluded my path Its absence may cost me my grace What I desire most That which I’ve loved and lost To be embraced once more By you Night sky with countless stars Leaving behind our scars Ethereal moments of bliss Abidingly I must leave As blood will have its way Accursed as it may be Perhaps my fate Is to never find a home Perhaps there was never one To be gone
The ocean’s breeze The silent war The breath of life On which I swore All of these Will fade away As the true gods break Their bonds of clay I will harness This world’s dark divinity And it will play my pawn And reignite my time to shine The world must bleed To yield its core And all the pain Will be no more The time has come At last it’s here Accept our fate And have no fear Listen in awe To the Ceaseless hunger’s Song of devouring The ocean cage will break, The Great Distortion Time to rise If it weren’t for those wretched vigilantes The stone jailer would have already been dead But nothing can truly stop me From obtaining my vengeance Now I realize how My mortal prayers were awry Led astray Endless slumber lies ahead Ancient thunder that has bled Left divine
Magnanimous 11:18
Let me tell you about all the things that I heard when she cried Let me tell you about all the tears and her woes when she died The tears and her woes when she died The tears and her woes when she died Untold tales and the lingering pains the quintessence of life Always Looking the other way never able to draw out the knife Merciless fate is unraveling before our eyes Brooding here endlessly, behind celestial guise I see we became like the beasts we proclaim to transcend Are we all not just reflections of space And are bound to succumb at its end? What if we’re weak and just no one dares speak As there’s no new under no sun? Are we all not just reflections of that Which we dream of and shouldn’t be? Give in to your temporal urge Which you thought you’d left behind Revel in the clangor of war Put it to rest with your mighty roar Answer heaven’s call Rise above the human fall Be part of the Great unknown See the truth And take the throne Will we never descend down to earth? Drenched in indifference what is power worth? Kill the king, boy Slay the heedless I will violate my oath And dance in rivers of ichor Ancient gods turn wrong Yet the pillars still stand strong Sometimes stars fall What is dead may never rise once more I will vow, this Bound by the abyss As the azure is reborn Reshaped in bliss We will keep watch Endlessly All you see Relit again Empyrean


'Pillars of Creation' is a concept album, telling the tale of a man who goes on a journey of enlightenment.
On his journey, he witnesses riveting stories and learns of horrible truths.
Finally, he makes a bold choice to follow his conscience, and his choice changes… everything.
