"Visions (Southern Cross)" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
I have seen the future of mankind
The wisdom of my prophecies you'll find
Follow the truth and be careful
Are we the last?

Hundred years has passed what have we done
Inconceivable damage under the sun
I think it's too late to change the man
We are the last

World keeps turning while people yearn for more
Mother nature is crying for a change
Time will come when we all must pay for what
We have done, are you prepared for that?

As we are reaching the end
Of the century there's message we can send
Be strong and bold and never lose your mind
'Cause we are the last

World keeps turning while people yearn for more
Mother nature is crying for a change
Time will come when we all must pay for what
We have done, are you prepared for that?

The signs of the end I see
Let them hear my voice in every corner of the world
Take heed of the warnings that I give
I have seen the southern cross forming in the sky

There shall be heard in the air the noise of weapons
And in the same year the divines shall be enemies
They shall unjustly put down the holy laws
And by thunder and war true believers shall die

(Nostradamus: Century IV:43)
For forty years the rainbow shall not appear
For forty years it shall be seen every day
The parched earth shall wax drier every day

And a great flood when it shall appear
(Nostradamus: Century I:17)
After us the road goes on forever
Many changes lie along the path

That´s the price we pay for our selfishness
We are headed for the end
From the skies shall come the powerful kind
Before and after the Mars reigns at will

Not far from the great age of millennium
Buried ones shall come out of their graves
(Nostradamus: Century X:72,74)
When the comet tears out the sky

You and I must die
After all this the time will come for the chosen ones
To rise from their graves to be free again
The beast is gone forever there´s no more pain

Instead so many things for us to attain
The sun is shining brightly after the rain
The land is green and full of life again
The sorrows wiped away now

It´s time to smile
And learn from the past
Together we will try
Twenty years of reign of the moon having past

Seven thousand years another shall hold his monarchy
When the sun shall resume his days past
Then is fulfilled and ends my prophecy
(Nostradamus: Century I:48)

    General CommentThis whole album is a tribute to Nostradamus: a philosopher who predicted the future and made prophecies.

    I have seen the future of mankind,
    The wisdom of my prophecies you'll find.
    Follow the truth and be careful, are we the last?

    Hundred years has passed what have we done,
    Inconceivable damage under the sun.
    I think it's too late to change the man - we are the last.

    The world keeps turning while people yearn for more,
    Mother nature is crying for change,
    The time will come when we all must pay for what we have done,
    Are you prepared for that?

    As we are reaching the end of the century
    There's messages we can send,
    Be strong and bold and never lose your mind
    'cause we are the last.

    The world keeps turning while people yearn for more,
    Mother Nature is crying for change,
    the time will come when we all must pay for what we have done,
    Are you prepared for that?

    Signs of the end I see,
    Let them hear my voice in every corner of the world,
    Take heed of the warnings that I give,
    I have seen the Southern Cross forming in the sky.

    "There shall be heard in the air the noise of weapons
    and in the same year the divines shall be enemies.
    They shall unjustly put down the holy laws
    and by thunder and war, true believers shall die"
    (Nostradamus: Century IV:43)

    "For forty years the rainbow shall not appear
    For forty years it shall be seen every day
    The parched earth shall wax drier every day
    And a great flood when it shall appear"
    (Nostradamus: Century I:17)

    After us the road goes on forever
    Many changes lie along the path
    That's the price we pay for our selfishness
    We are headed for the end

    "From the skies shall come the powerful kind
    Before and after the Mars reigns at will
    Not far from the great age of Millennium
    Buried ones shall come out of their graves"
    (Nostradamus: Century X:72,74)

    When the comet tears out the sky
    You and I must die
    After all this the time will come for the chosen ones
    To rise from their graves to be free again

    The beast is gone forever, there's no more pain
    Instead so many things for us to attain
    The sun is shining brightly after the rain
    The land is green and full of life again

    The sorrows wiped away now
    It's time to smile
    And learn from the past
    Together we will try

    "Twenty years of reign of the moon having past
    Seven thousand years another shall hold his monarchy
    When the sun shall resume his days past
    Then is fulfilled and ends my prophecy"
