A shimmer trace of divinity lost
In the beckoning midnight vault
(We are) lulled within the wake
Of a cold November's nightfall

Nightfall

A communion of life and eternity
Of races scattered in the depths
Of the universal dark

Above us minds went sailing free
And blossomed in the vast nocturnal sea

Paragon of beauty
Oh, spark of Creation
We march to the rhythm of the Nigh

Star born flew the Dove of Man
In the eventide of life
Whose wonders crowned
Our yesterdays with light

Fire, earth, water, wind


We lived beneath the waning moon of truth
And danced in hunger for the power mind
(of youth)

Like the dark to a dying Flame
Sweepingly embracing its grieving remains
Defiantly blazing the black that awaits
Counting the days 'til the new Age awaits

Times' lustful cyclones arise
Piercing the fairest of skies
In Elysian awakening of spiritual glory
We see what our history belies

Meadows of Asphodel
Burning in the hunted dawn
Tragedies die among fiery flames
As the firewood of Wisdom is sewn

Our Guardians were blind
My light bringer ephemeral

Within the heart of all
A cold and dusky melancholy night
As ever sullied the fair face of light

Whose seeds of life they grind
To dust, of vapor is our mind

Evermore

Paragon of beauty
Oh, spark of Creation
We march to the rhythm of the night

Nightfall by the shore of time
A tidal wave of fire and woe
Swept away with the last of life
The core of the enigma as bestowed

Our crystal spirits melt to flow
The mountainside along
To join as one with seas of old
In symbiotic songs

"Communion... Within the over soul
Of the Universe"

We are but fragment of Eternity
Pale shadows of what we'll once be

In life's outer regions I will find
The foremost tranquility

Chanting the odes of Magonia
A soul stream in flight to the Otherworld

To the Otherworld
