Track Name: Flying Above Ancient Ruins
Travelling across time
Near the mountains of Fagaras
The Citadel lies, laid upon an inaccessible hillside
Unconquerable fortress, surrounded by myths
Poenari, so it was called

Flying above ancient ruins
Where history was written in blood
Over massive hills
Watching the thousands of stairs leading upwards,
in my dreams

Hundreds of years have passed
Since the last ruler
He was a son of the dragon, prince of darkness
His might and glory is eternal
Still living today in dark legends
Track Name: Hunger of her Eyes
On the wings of night
Where shadows whisper
and wind sign its songs
There among the rocks
and in hollows of the trees

A small and beauteous bird
Is on the prowl
Symbol of infinite wisdom
All-seeing
and almighty creature

Who holds guard
Upon its wooden throne
Observing the daily cycle

An immortal queen
The cold of her eyes...
...watches the mountain sides
Track Name: Count Von Krolock
Funeral winds blow through the snowy land
Frost bites under the skin and blood coagulates in the veins
Somewhere in the distance, howling of wolves is to be heard
Children of the night are lurking in their sites

A landscape so mysterious and magical,
Decrepit by misery and fright
Where the old count survives deep in the mountains
During cold and long nights
Inside his dwelling he remembers that day

When the moon is full and casts its light
Then all around they know
That each year
The ball of vampires invites its guests to a feast
Track Name: The Wanderer Ascends (Father of Sorrows and Past)
Alone I wander athwart His night
Father of sorrows and past
Dazzling owllight unlocks the pathways
Until one day His wings will
sweep down the stars

Without end you roam this mountain pass
What have you seen - in the land of phantoms?
The icy fortress near the firmament
Is it made of our horrors only -
or are those walls of stone?

My eyes were open to the twilight
And I can no longer speak
of fleshly matters
From the bastions I have seen the Abyss
and am now blinded to the world.
Track Name: At the End of a New Age
When the day began its endless pilgrimage
And bells are heard from afar
Evil in its cruelest shape,
chafing its hands

Sleepless nights
And eternal days
Fear from what was never known
Exorbitance of own thoughts

Enthralled by helplessness
Death was never so close
Destiny gambles with you
Like a beast lurking for its prey

At the end of a new age
This fact will forever be in my memory...
