"The Yonder Beckons" as written by and Selim Lemouchi....
Long have I waited
For the hour to strike
For the stars to grow tired and fall
Since the birth of the earth have I waited
For the sands of its time to run low
But tonight
I shall wait no more

I'm leaving now
On a trail to sulphur and salt
Yes I'm leaving
To the havens where all things halt
The yonder beckons
The twilight oceans call
To forbidden shores
I'll set my course

I've seen enough
Of your little world
How it helplessly
In the darkness twirls
But from the roaring depths
Beyond the known
My maker calls
It's time to go

I'm leaving now
The sun in sinking in the west
Yes, I'm leaving
To hell with all the rest
The yonder beckons
The twilight oceans call
Towards forbidden shores
I'll set my course

The winds of Apep are upon my sail
From 'neath the waves I hear the old ones sing their song
And in the distance now, the seventh lighthouse burns
That's where the oceans end and that is where I yearn

There begins
A journey long
Past the seventh
And ever on
The yonder beckons
I can hear its roaring wail
From the starless spheres of nothing
Where the serpent lets loose its tail
