Unbodied 03:03 video
UNBODIED I spent so many years in this limbo A feeble man, an empty broken shell So why I choose this voluntary exile? I don`t feel the blood, pulsing in veins Life dissolved in death Cry! Cuz my outcome is tragic Unbodied! Can`t you see? I`m just a ghost, unformed creation Give me peace! I went through hell I don`t know where I am I think, this place was left By our creators! I want to leave, but I don`t know how Step by step I move away from the light, into the arms of darkness It feels like an infection Chorus: Sun will not rise for me anymore Life was lost Lowliness And the cage was locked Condemned me to exile Days, when heart has stopped (life was a lie) This reachless perfection in my mind Please stop praying (please stop praying) I never will be saved (I am gone) This continuous overthrow Constant fall into emptiness Chorus: (2x) Sun will not rise for me anymore Life was lost Lowliness Dark river flows through, through all the worlds These waters take me And after the mind has calmed down...silence Oblivion, through pain, oblivion At the very end of the road I synchronized with the pulsation of the universe...

NATURE OF THE PARADOX I used all my chances I used everything But it`s getting worse with every fuckin` day Covered my scars And hided my pain But couldn't hide my soul as deep as it needs This nature of the paradox I have no future, when I have lost my past Like reversed symphony My reveries, my reveries Something else (an evil entity) Control my head, my every move (and it`s not going to leave) Something else (an evil entity) It wants me dead Oh God! Erase all the thin lines Oh God! Erase all the thin lines When I`m all alone Bring back the control... Save me from truth I will forget it on another day Save me from truth It squeezes my throat And I see no guiding light (cannot ease the pain) So it keeps on fighting with me Save me from truth I need a truce I think it's time to wake (my consciousness) Reveries, reveries I was wrong! Mind is clear - I break the chains of gravity Broken faith chasing me Freed my body from that entity And drowned in reveries This nature of the paradox Will complement all the existing gaps It leading me to nowhere But I'm nearly done... Save me from truth I will forget it on another day Save me from truth It squeezes my throat And I see no guiding light (cannot ease the pain) So it keeps on fighting with me Save me from truth I need a truce And I am buried my heart And with it all of my scars And run away, away, away...

Shadows 04:08
SHADOWS The shadows are calling for you They`ll do anything to get through The shadows are waiting for you In the blackness The walls of this city Are painted with blood An abomination that swallow hearts No trace...Those shadows are hide their presence Those shadows are dead inside Believe me - they will drag you down Believe me - below this town Wasted soul in a wasted body With no way to break boundaries of the flesh Wasted world - damaged with obscurity Shadows dance, circling in a trance They feel the victim and they know it`s you They know you`re scared, you are their prey Seeking to drive their thirst away You knew it will be mistake But still you take a step This place not intended to life Still burning from the inside (The shadows are calling for you They`ll do anything to get through) And light cannot pass the blackness of this place (2x) Blurred mind is like a cage It`s like a goddamn cage Believe me - they`ll drag you down Believe me - below this town You can't stop... No matter how hard you are trying Stay aside! Ten pairs of eyes glowing in the dark Hatred... it trickles from their sore mouths Run and hide, run and hide, save yourself! They know you desperate You run between the lights, the road without end And blackness pursues you And it will overtake You knew it will be mistake But still you take a step This place not intended to life burning still from the inside Distant lights! They fade away with you! Those fading distant lights...

Ascention 04:58
ASCENTION The line is gone The moment I was so afraid of Is now, but why it so deeply calms me? I think I`m ready to be gone... Everything seems so naturally I feel the sky falls inside of me Don`t even try to stay in this routine of days (of days) I didn`t feel alive, so let`s not pretend Burdened with a habit, to betray myself, but what I`ve got? I`m sick of their lies, of all the dirty lies So I decide to move along, oh! My way`s one-sided And undivided My way`s one-sided And reckless for them all Don`t expect that they'll believe me I don`t really care The wait is over - it was so long I don`t know what is beyond - beyond the dream Congregating The metamorphosis, different parallel My fake beliefs are gone The harmony built inside The moment of solace (true solace) - the great ascension! This is the path I chose Greater than the Sun I've come through (perception) It's all I need (connection) Dim lights ignite (dim lights ignite when I arrived) When all the lies and pain Going away It`s time for something new! No! There's no constraints for me in this reality The fire transformed me and now I`m fading away, forgot my affections Deceived fate World`s blind (world`s blind) Obsessed only with their lives (with their lives) Inside it`s empty, can`t you see the truth? Walls will not make you strong There`s no limits Between you and path to the stars Choose! Maybe it`s your only way To the stars! Life in cocoon No meaning for us to share it My ascension will break their rules And I hope you will join me World is lost, so there is no need to pretending! Just spread your wings and fly Ascension And no more pain inside I`m waking up Reaching the void... I call you (call you) Go the road of light We will unite I've come through (perception) It's all I need (connection) Dim lights ignite (dim lights ignite when I arrived) When all lies and pain Going away It`s time for something new!

Conquerors 04:23
CONQUERORS Your world Crumbled, melted away It burnt down Teardrop, mixed with your blood Barren paradise It can only give you darkest hate NO! beloved god has left his throne Your shepherd is gone, your shepherd unleashes our suffering in hell Do you hear the call to arms? Will you stab them with the million poisoned daggers? This is your destiny; this is your destiny! You are here to die! Kiss the crucifixion We`re breaking the rules of infinity! Down to the core to embrace our cursed Earth! With the blood of Gods We`ll rewrite our destiny to prevail! Kings and queens can only save themselves Perfection - is what we're trying to create Subjection - your life is our price LIFE The bitter truth! We`re curing the sickness No matter how much men we've lost (+scream) It makes no difference (+scream) We`re marching on To heavens gate And there`s no escape As conquerors we`re breaking through Breaking through... Crawling parasites - they're like you (like you) And we won`t turn away - you must know this Dullness defines you So we bring the notion of justice You still live inside your fake identity Don`t you feel this world despise you? Nothing, but bloodsuckers This is your destiny; this is your destiny! You are here to die! Kiss the crucifixion We`re breaking the rules of infinity! Down to the core to embrace our cursed Earth! LIFE The bitter truth! We`re curing the sickness No matter how much men we lost (+scream) It makes no difference (+scream) We`re marching on To heavens gate And there`s no escape No escape... We know the truth! As God as our witness So incomplete We know the truth! As God as our witness Swallow your pride As God as our witness Marching on!

Superior 04:06
SUPERIOR Lost in the chasm The story keeps moving backwards in my head Blind spots in my mind was replaced Time stopped and then I Saw someone's face - face that I know! Everything looked as if I was looking at myself This can't be real! But it is And he continues to keep moving towards me But I was numb, I was numb His eyes are dark and smitten Faded and dreary eyes No spark... and I can see that He's not alive He came up Cold hands grabbed me It consumed my mind and heart Will he try to hurt me? Lose control And I just can't surpass him The superior form of me, he rules my mind Mighty unexplained force, he's unfeigned I have no words I can say now, none of mortal man has this might His dead eyes flashed in the dark and then... Then we soared! "The ultimate purpose (He spoke with his mouth shut) Is the awakening from pseudo-existence Bring you back to life!" And then I saw bizarre dimensions I was pierced by the light My apprehension melting down I am no longer a feeble man Light began to absorb me The great unknown keeps tempting me I hope it will never stop and so it will be He's friend, he's foe He guides me all along the way There is no pain I cast my fears away Altered sense of life Not the end (new era is yet to begin) Of my path (keeps rising from the ash, until it has much power to create new order) Not the end (power, that I'll never understand) ...but I'll die trying

GOLDEN PENDANT How many times How many times How many times I lived in vain But now I’m here - I am here Voice from another day I feel it coming from my heart With all the dreams that have remained (in past) The voice is warning: "Remember yourself! Remember your role! Peer into the golden pendant Remember yourself! Remember again! Stop living in vain!" And I am falling to a dream And I am drifting inside this imminence Hold on! What happened to this city I know? It`s so surreal And I am falling to a dream And I am drifting inside this imminence Oh God! And why it seems that this body isn`t mine, am I going insane? "Once you were great as a god (It’s in your blood) Greater then man ever could be Once You were great as a god Greater then man ever could be Then man ever could be, it`s in your blood" The secret is revealed So long was kept concealed So many times I lived in vain but now I am here Chorus: And I am falling to a dream And I am drifting inside this imminence Hold on! And why it seems that this body isn`t mine, am I going insane? It`s so surreal to me, I know, I know It`s so surreal to me, I know, I know And then I woke up...

Ethereal 04:04
ETHEREAL I've lost my way Those winds are changing None of them shows to me familiar world They are the past, they are the future I`ll go through chaos, if it need to Dissolve... Different stories I can tell Will guide you through my inner hell But only one will make you feel Ethereal I'm refusing this sick reality you offering I`ll drift through stars on equal terms with boundless universe I will transcend Tones of your ignorance I know I need to change myself The path of the light Will guide me through the darkest night I become a part of something, so ethereal I choose not to stay In world where my mind is dying Remember this day! Farewell to the life in its past form Now it`s your turn to wake up! (to wake up!) An echoes sounding in my head They come from the outside I'm dissolving in the essence It`s time to set my body free I must bury the sorrow Deep down inside of me Inside of me! Dissolve... It burns like f***ing fire Fast-paced star, rising afar World painted gold I want to share my mind with you It`s like a game, where you can trick obsessions But don`t forget Knowledge always burns like fire It`s time to leave, it`s time to leave... And it feels natural Like melting with the solar winds `cause you and me - we`re simply nothing! The path of the light11Will guide me through the darkest nightI become a part of something, so etherealI choose not to stay (not to stay here)In world where my mind is dyingRemember this day!Farewell to the life in its past form

FACES BEHIND THE STARS I don`t deserve another chance I`m drowning in the ignorance My will is broken The lips have spoken Indifference The more attempts - the fewer wins The constant friend of all my fears And paper crowns are buried deep down in the sand with me I failed you! Forgive me! The desolation of inner self I appeal to those whose bodies are invisible I truly believe they`ll segregate me from my past I can`t see the faces hidden behind the stars But I feel, it`s not absurd - they know that I exist I'm the one who will fulfill your whim (just say a word) You are perfection! Greatest perfection! Nightmares are gone, now I`m alone with my dreams Can`t you hear? I`m your humble slave! The sun did not illuminate the dark sky I simply didn`t know what to expect I just can't feel my body, feel no pain I soared above the dried soil Laugh! Oh, they heard me well! They fulfilled my only desire! So I stopped resisting And flew away with the wind! Their call is so strong The mortal man can`t oppose So my opposing is pointless I can`t comprehend their strength Don`t realize the greatness But I give them my life Bliss collapsed! They condemned me to death! Right at their feet! Ignominious And then I fell Their call is so strong The mortal man can`t oppose So my opposing is pointless I can't comprehend their divine strength Don`t realize the greatness But I give them my life And the stars will hide their faces And the stars will hide their faces Doomed to insignificance Just a worthless mortal man I don`t hear their mighty call I don`t hear their mighty call...

DESTINY CRUCIFIED I stucked inside this endless borders And now i can`t refute The void inside me filled with painful and unhealing wounds It giving me the daily doze Of something i called "soul" Desynchronized with body, broken and out of control And it feeds on my own anger The days i`ve spent alone I tried in vain to realize That there`s no reason left to fight And then my mind was filled with senses, which i`ve been looking for so long. So i feel like i finally found this place where I belong. Chorus: This world is another blank page with lack of fantasies There is no wrong or right, we cannot escape from this life I can`t recognize those voices in my mind They trying to say: "You`re not lonely. You will find the otherside" Voices are buzzing in my head: "You lied to yourself!" "Your world is nothing more than a next step Prepare now for your big crusade! Move forward and never look back" Chorus (2x): This world is another blank page with lack of fantasies There is no wrong or right, we cannot escape from this life It was a moment, when all the senses were lost All that i knew, shattered in pieces at once Trying to understand this new power, That makes my past life useless as a blur Chorus (2x): This world is another blank page with lack of fantasies Destiny crucified, when different spaces collide CRUCIFIED!

"With their newest outing ‘Ethereal’, the band takes what made ‘Exodus’ so great and amplified that by a tenfold: the instrumentation, the vocals, the production, the concept, what have you has been improved upon in an unfathomable way, leading to the bands greatest album of their careers." "Right off the bat in opener “Unbodied”, the oriental sounds, as common on prior albums, are still very prevalent and it’s really well utilized as opposed to being some easy gimmick. The concept of the album, which is about the main characters self-searching, multidimensional wanderings and realizing himself ‘as great as a God’ in some of the realities, is fully revealed on “Golden Pendant”, which coincidentally enough seems to have some of the best lyrics on the album."
