Track Name: The Phoenix
Born of flame in Araby
Ruby wings are beating.
Servant of Ra, millions believed
Flashing plumes of hundred suns.

Taking flight, it burns the night.

Ancient now, fading fast,
Quickly, make a funeral pyre.
There enclosed, a tomb of twigs
Waiting for the day to come.

Dawn’s first rays set the bird ablaze.

Alive! Can’t take my soul tonight.
Alive! You can’t leave me to die.
Alive! Out of the ashes rise.
Alive! The Phoenix never dies.

On to the City of the Sun
As it soars against the sky
To proffer an egg of myrrh
The Phoenix never dies!

Alive! Can’t take my soul tonight.
Alive! You can’t leave me to die.
Alive! Out of the ashes rise.
Alive! The Phoenix never dies.
Track Name: The Dying Wizard
Stuck in this tomb, the air rushing out, death is mine tonight.
Awoke with the feeling that this day to come would take my life

As a young man I studied the arts of magic and light.
I traveled harsh realms, talked to the dead and gained power of flight!!!

** In this life, you will find a world of strange illusions
In my world, reality is lost between my hands, and slipping fast AS I DIE! **

All that remains behind castle walls just outside of sight
May not be holy nor is it pure like the blackest night

For these last years sitting at my desk I write
All of my curses, learned for my lord, no longer mine to hide

** In this life, you will find a world of strange illusions
In my world, reality is lost between my hands, and slipping fast AS I DIE! **

Wizard, your lifeblood is forfeit to me!
From my dreams I knew you were coming tonight.
You have befouled the realm with your art!
All these things were done by command of my liege.
He remains blameless, the taint is on YOU
And now you must perish in flame!!
My time is upon me, one last incantation.
My liege's soul is bound to the stone in this ring.
A wave of my hand, a quick transmutation
The ruler perishes now I am king
