Adonai Ha-Aretz Prayer weaver divine Flowers for God Lord of the Earth We implore thee Malach Ashim through you Adonai Ha-Aretz Prayer weaver divine
2.
Desert night cool moon bright sea alive pull of tide Journey toward the ancient city of Karthago Old men know all of woes tales by Beldi women told Seven days for seven nights seven daughters in full bloom of life Allah guide us to goodness Shahada sacred bliss Across the sea arcane dreams lead foreign men into Tanit's hands Journey toward the ancient city of Karthago Allah guide us to goodness Shahada sacred bliss

Temptress 02:09
Oh the desert belongs to no one Shifting sands are their own Maji king or slave Subjects always Oasis a temptress to a mirage Subjects always Oh the desert belongs to no one Shifting sands are their own
4.
Older than humanity older than the desert The soul of the World sings the song of the Universe We are loved as we are loved no reasons are needed Omens reveal what has always been One twin soul destined for us all We are loved as we are loved no reasons are needed
5.
Sophia 03:48
In between the Earth and on high are seven ways to die Above the universe beneath the heavens isolated for all time Seven ways to die In between the Earth and the deep are seven ways to die All the wisdom in the World plunged into the great below Now human once divine Seven ways to die Only mortals suffer and taste untold pleasures that eternity deprives Seven ways to die In between the Earth and on high are seven ways to die Love created from chaos asks no forgiveness adored and alive Seven ways to die
6.
An Escape 05:45
Brother murder of love Temple stained with innocent blood Dead speak in dreams Rebuild a world strong as any Rome Only seven years to create an escape Sister mistress of exile Queen of the crippled empire Entourage of broken vows Rebuild a world strong as any Rome Only six hundred years to destroy and escape City of survivors Myth of sacrifice Queen of suicide
7.
Waiting so much waiting Waiting although I know you aren't coming back Lost in the past draped in furs Constant stirring of fire Constant toiling of mind Lost in the past draped in furs Times forgotten binding me Time means nothing to my memories Lost in the past draped in furs You won't disappear before I do I won't let them take me from you An empty vessel left behind Draped in furs
