Track Name: The Preacher and the Sea
The preacher stares
At waves of red
Sublime beauty
Seen in his head

He seeks the light
In the abyss
So breathtaking
Yet meaningless

He wants to know
What brought them here
But soon his thoughts
Will disappear

The Megalith
Will end his plight
He walks away
Into the night
Track Name: In the Shadow
They are the ones who say to seek the light
But they live in a shadow that brings doubt into my mind
If you search in the black for the darkest of truths
What will your searching find?

People around bow down before a rock
And they worship the sea on which the Megalith now lies
Though It may be a myth or a truth set adrift
It clears the stormy skies

They are the people
The ones down on Earth
They dedicate their lives
From death until birth

It is their leader
Their god and their soul
They lacked their own purpose
So It took that role

Here come the men who strive to save your soul
And to leave your old body for a new one in the sky
When you give It your heart through your faith and your trust
It's given back up high

They have a plan to be among the stars
If they do what they think the Megalith commands of them
They will seek out the root of their unhappiness
And cut it from the stem

They are the people
The ones down on Earth
They dedicate their lives
From death until birth

It is their leader
Their god and their soul
They lacked their own purpose
So It took that role
Track Name: Paradise Under
There's a paradise under
Underneath these waves
In this land of wonder
Can you be so brave

There's a paradise under
And we'll soon be there
Now we join our brothers
Up above the air

There's a paradise under
There's a paradise under
There's a paradise under
There's a paradise under
Under
Under
Under
Track Name: Red Waves
The preacher stares
At waves of red
But in his eyes
The fire's dead

He searched for truth
In the abyss
But holy light
Was quite amiss

And as the waves
Crash on the shore
He wonders 'bout
Forgotten lore

Is anything
Quite as it seems
Or do we live
Inside our dreams
