"Design Your Universe - A New Age Dawns - Pt. VI" as written by Markus H J Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Markus H J Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Amanda Somerville and Sascha Paeth....
We're blind and eager
Avarice will set us back to blank
Those who wager all will have to name a reason
If you can't let go, you will end up empty handed
If you can't control, you'll live your life in vain

Who decides about my time to come?
Who is able to break through the circle of life and doom?

Don't look back
Keep on track to break the curse
Take the chance
Design your universe

We can't undo what we have done
So show us now what we've become
Confront us with our viciousness
And our weakness
We can't evade our destiny
So show responsibility
For we all surely have a sense
Of our consciousness

To take for taking's sake
Will leave a path of loss and strain
And endless breaking of faith can warrant acts of treason
If you can't let go, you will end up empty handed
If you can't control, you'll live your life in vain

Who decides about what's true or false?
Who is able to sift through the treasures from the flukes?

The time has come, we have to see
That total wisdom is in reach
The time has come to color in the lines
We must identify the signs

So many people are full of hate
While love and light are in their reach
So many people will harm themselves
But life can be so beautiful

So many people will idolize
While their own success is in their reach
Don't forget you're able to
Design your own universe

Find your balance, sink into rumination

Ipsum te reperies

Potire mundorum
Potire omnis mundi

    General CommentThis is surely a masterpiece, the translation of the latin part:

    You will discover yourself
    Become a master of worlds
    Become a master of the whole world

    My OpinionHow come no comments yet!

    This is alongside TDC the best Epica album, heavier with more guitars and chorus, less orchestra, and they do guitar solos, and Simone's voice is amazing as usual, at some parts thought i was listening to Dream Theater! If you're into progressive you'll love it even more

    General CommentI agree, this is another great album by Epica. As for this song in particular, I think it just sums up the whole theme of the album, which are really Epica's main themes: independent thinking and questioning authority/society. But in particular its about technology- specifically nanotechnology and genetics, which are threatening to devalue our humanity. Although, it seems to be more on the negative side of the argument, making it seem all hopeless "So many people are full of hate..."

    But, there are signs of this song being a wakeup call for people to fix the world's wrongs.

    There are, now that I look at it closely, a whole lot of themes in this song. Hard to pick out just one. (Still an awesome song though)

    General Commentfrom what i hear and gather from the song, it's partially about the mayan society breaking down after being promised a new king who would liberate them from slavery and sacrifices, unfortunately the king couldn't keep his promise and thus the kingdom is in war and chaos


    that's the physical aspect of it

    the spiritual aspect of it is how the people truly believe ascending into an after life or expecting hope.

    General CommentI've been thinking about quantum physics, what the album is kind of about, and this song is basically about doing things, taking decisions and etc. Everytime you do something a universe is created. Now for example if you turn left there is another universe created where another you turn right and this is what this song is literally about, designing your universe
