Track Name: Written in Blood
There was a man standing in evening’s cold
Leather black boots and tattered green coat
Under the raven hair lust in the eyes
„Stranger what is that your heart most desires?“

Told to a man and as he had no sight
He wandered the world at neverending night
He stepped to him forward and accepted the price
Wandering now on with new pair of eyes

There came a man with a help of his son
Shorter than all of those who have come
As legless he was he wanted to know
Once again the feeling of the feet of his own

„And you my friend see I can no lost
Strenght or bag of the coins could be just yours
What is then price you say for your soul?“
„Let me just love once again and for all“
Track Name: Bewitched
Look into my eyes, see the flame that's burning
Blackened dark streams in my veins are flowing
See I cannot what I used to be
Losing chains of past, I was set free
I am Bewitched!

Set me free!

Don't look my way, don't turn your side
to me now there is only one path
leading to my friend, eternal fire
no more time for me, my life the liar
I am Bewitched!

Set me free!

I am no more living, yet still I am not dead
There's no way back now, don't feel sad
here comes the end, it's not yet that far
Let us embrace ourselves as we are!

Set me free!
Track Name: Into the Woods
Be without fear
When voices of those who died you can hear
I just want to know
What means to be alive once more

Into the woods
Where spirits dance all night
Into the woods
Where my heart belongs
Into the woods where spirits dance all night
Into the woods
Where my heart belongs

Let them come closer
Let them embrace your heart
I just want to know
What means to be alive once more

Into the woods
Where spirits dance all night
Into the woods
Where my heart belongs
Into the woods
Where spirits dance all night
Into the woods
To join the last waltz
Track Name: Cheers!
When I was in forest, hunting a deer
there came an old men and asked me for beer
I lay down my weapon and I hold up a bock
then we both set onto the ancient rock

We sang like the brothers, we cheered with the wine
we’re calling the rain, everything was fine
With us was singing the all friendly woods
We saw all the twice, but in happy moods

Soon the night came, and sun went down
I was getting tired, and I give the yawn
But in the one moment I looked on the ground
My unbreathing body in stound there I found

I looked at old men, he was laughing aloud
Then I mentioned old stories which were floating around
About these forests and spirits and ghost
Then I realized I’m drinking with one of those

He told me „Don’t worry, the death isn’t so bad.
You can drink with me though you are now dead“
So I waved a hand and I’ve gulped a gin
a happier end this couldn’t have been.
Track Name: Feast
instrumental
Track Name: Son of the Trees
Riding, winter night, on the horse
he's pale like my soul.
Snowfall and the icy winds,
it is covering my loneliness through the time

So don't be afraid,
close your eyes and hold my hand
I will take you with me to my kingdom
where you will carry the feathered crown

In my dreams I'm riding unicorn
through magic fields and forests
I'm running with antlers on my head
I'm the Son of the Trees

Mountains and the snowy plains
where the desperate man fall
There I'm calling sun,
but nothing will ever come

So don't be afraid,
close your eyes and hold my hand
I will take you with me to my kingdom
where you will carry the feathered crown

In my dreams I'm riding unicorn
through magic fields and forests
I'm running with antlers on my head
I'm the Son of the Trees

You will never see me again
my beautiful star
Your teardrops are drowning me down,
but my journey leads me away

So don't be afraid,
close your eyes and hold my hand
I will take you with me to my kingdom
where you will carry the feathered crown

In my dreams I'm riding unicorn
through magic fields and forests
I'm running with antlers on my head
I'm the Son of the Trees

So don't be afraid,
close your eyes and hold my hand
I will take you with me to my kingdom
where you will carry the feathered crown
Track Name: Follow the Trail
instrumental
Track Name: Hunting of a Song
In a midnight rain
When all the stars fell down
There came young strong man
This night – it was time for his hunt
Hundred miles away
He thought of his beautiful wife
And with memories of his son
He hold up his saex knife

Raindrops above high-born trees
sounded like battle drum
He has just heard his enemies…
Their sound, their sound, their sound

He just wanted to go and
To shut up the song of his pray
To kill these howling beasts
To get them from this world away
Then he started to run
And after little while
His heart began beat loud
It has slipped out of his mind

His eyes didn’t see
Anything all around
And only thing he heard
Was this terrible werewolf’s song

Time ran out of him
Many hours passed by
Then he saw them both
Howling in moonlight

After bloody dance
Hunter looked at his pray
She-wolf and her young
Won’t see the day again
But then the sunrise came
And light amongst raindrops
And while it touched werewolves
Wolf’s look became lost

Sky couldn’t stop crying
And all the world calmed down
Man’s face was marked by blood of his wife
And his knife was in his son
Track Name: Carnivorous Desire
There is the bloom behind the trees,
makes you fall onto your knees.
The beautifulness of this kind,
which everyone is used to find
and after that it’ll make them blind.

You’re just a hummingbird,
by sweet nectar you’re blurred.
Which you always wanted to taste,
all your life you’ll for it waste
and you’ll ever act in haste.

The nectar,it’s warming through your veins,
it’ll take you to eternal plains.
Where smoothy harmony you’ll get,
but you’ll weave into a net
and your view will paint in red.

Because this bloom it’s not what it seems to be,
when it catch your heart, you’ll never be free.
This kind will tore apart your hope,
you will feel the pain that you can’t cope
and the rest of your life you’ll mope away.

And nothing can ever protect you from this end,
you will be shut in the darkened land.
Only the wise trees which are dreaming of
the world, they know the same as sky above
that this bloom we called a love.
Track Name: Canterbury Road
Shining of a new dawn
Above the cliffs of chalk
The water and sand
I touched and with raindrops
I stepped on the shore

With cloak covering my scars
And the fading hope
Burning my past behind
I laid my feet on the road

On Canterbury road
To the shrine of better days
Light a candle of your own
For my shattered soul

Barely the flame in my eyes
Keeps its filling my heart
My legs they carry me no more
But you my friend you can still walk

No my friend there‘s no other way
No cure to stop the pain
I am doomed
Now you must take the way down the road

On Canterbury road
To the shrine of better days
Light a candle of your own
For my shattered soul
