Track Name: The Forsaken Lands
Gather, gather around,
Hear me, hear my words

Hear my story,
for this happened many years ago
My curiosity had put me on an ominous quest
So sit back with a pint of ale and listen to my tale...


Time went by, day and night
I journeyed through the lands
Led by my curiosity, my journey
would lead me to the southern lands

To the lands where no one goes
the marshes where the rain ever falls
thick grey clouds hide the light
hide the dangers, hide the blight

Gossip and rumor guide my way

These words were carried on the wind:

Where light is but a memory
Where darkness rules below the trees
Where none dare venture, where all is damned,
Forsaken are the southern lands

Where secrets lie beneath the ground
Where evil sleeps, where death is found
Speak to your gods if you believe
For those who enter never leave

Gossip and rumor guide my way

My journey carries on

The sky grew darker, I was near
few souls ever thread here
Over the hills, I could see
Endless marches, and the last known settlement

I entered the town of Mossrock
Hoping to find
Context or the meaning to these words, carried on the wind

Where light is but a memory
Where darkness rules below the trees
Where none dare venture, where all is damned,
Forsaken are the southern lands

Where secrets lie beneath the ground
Where evil rests, where death is found
Speak to your gods if you believe
For those who enter never leave
Track Name: The Crimson Sign
The sunlight in my face!
so bright, I was surprised
I thought that I,
had died, but I defied my demise

So here I am in an unknown room,
My wounds were seen to, (but by whom)
A man then entered, I turned to him.
The man sat down and started to explain

this is the village of Everrain
We are descendants of the ancients

he wore same red crest as the shaman

when I got out it took a look around,
in the floating town
I found a friend, with answers at hand.
the scholar's apprentice started to explain

Cursed is the village of Everrain.
blessed with survival, but never to be free again

they wear the crimson sign of an ancient god

As the legends go the kingdom,
fell under the thorn of the swamp.
many had fled it, but some stayed behind,
surrendered, adapted to save their hides

Bound by pact, in survitude
To the will of their newfound god

Work, pray, bleed, stray, they, serve, in survitude
sleep, eat, suffer, bleed, cursed, slaves of their newfound god


(they all) Work, pray, bleed, stray, they, all bleed in survitude
sleep, eat, suffer, bleed,
it is now clear to me

pain, pain, torment, pain
they, all, bleed In survitude
bleed, bleed, suffer, bleed,
it is now clear to me


I have walked right into his domain!

Damned is the village of Everrain
somehow resisting, but slaves all the same.

As we depart, the villagers speak of the dangers of our foe
But no such warning I shall heed
Onwards! To the swamp we go!

Into the swamp we go!

For the sake of the south!
Track Name: Paralysis
I will not die today!


Unsheathe my sword and I strike,
The bard yet lives, the shaman dies.
The tribe to arms, I run for my life


As the wind I run through the swamp,
the tribe on my heels
Into the darkness
The terror I feel


I can hear the tribesmen closing in
as I look back I run into a wall

a wall of thorns
They rend my flesh (it stings) the gash, IT IS INFECTED
Can't go on (poison) SO STRONG, I spot a hollow tree and HIDE INSIDE


I crawl out of the tree, I fall down, poison spreading
The wound is festering, dripping with ooze
Vision blurring

Must get to safety and fast, where to go now
I'll just start walking, wandering off

Must stay awake

Must get to safety

I must find my way through the swamp
Knees weak, survival

On to me!

Lost on to me!

Strength is sapped away,
Darkness takes my sight,
My knees give in
I will not survive
