Alban hefyn, on, ye brave let us gather in honesty through open fields a way to pave golden cobs, ears of simplicity Living in this breadless world, shadows fall above our grain From the oven hurled we, the ardour, scorching fain On Fionns steps upward to avoid older than time Older than earth’s deep guard rungs of truth to climb To liars-betrayers To friars with prayers Lo! His breath aflame hath burned grain and corn and call’d the dragonsworn His roar became a fiery, fervid mourn What was, shall be reborn within the dragonsworn Storyteller, glassy glaze, your skin is so thin like sugar crust or honey pace on perpetual ego-hike Sinister, always in need for bread, feed, food Sucking, licking, loving sweets gormandizing parenthood Woe, ye feeding starvelings your bread is mouldy and foul We’re not tied to your apron strings and will burn your sugar bowl For truth-veracity No truce or credulity Lo! His breath aflame hath burned grain and corn and call’d the dragonsworn His roar became a fiery and fervid mourn what was, shall be reborn within the dragonsworn Grain fields hide only as long as there could not be a harvest day Grain stood high and corn stood strong until the dragons are on foray Rise! And be yeast Our matter is not forlorn We’re legion, we’re the dragonsworn We´re marching on with banners of scorn Poisoned is our thorn on the ensign of dragonsworn Lo! His breath aflame hath burned grain and corn and call’d the dragonsworn His roar became a fiery, fervid mourn What was, shall be reborn within the dragonsworn

Look up to the sun The warmth doesn’t reach me Free, a soul on the run A road, ever goes on for me Dull blade shows the way A stone weighs on my back Dust down a pilgrims gray On unseen paths in black medio tutissimus ibis medio tutissimus ibis I stagger at cloud membrane Mind deva busts through air vain Tied to a vaporous pall I stagger at cloud membrane Mind deva busts through air vain Eyewall Foreward, onwards Tried it on the spot Tied within a knot Foreward, onwards Tried it on the spot Tied within a knot medio tutissimus ibis medio tutissimus ibis I stagger at cloud membrane Mind deva busts through air vain Tied to a vaporous pall I stagger at cloud membrane Mind deva busts through air vain Eyewall Look up to the sun (Look up to the sun) The warmth doesn’t reach me (It doesn´t reach me) Free. a soul on the run (A soul on the run) A road, ever goes on for me I walk in forlornness (Ever goes on for me) I walk in forlornness I walk in forlornness I walk in forlornness I walk in forlornness... A soul on the run

Take, o, rage within the chest Full fathom three gold wealth lies Rich and strange, a beauty’s best Flesh will pass, coin never dies For gold long all, Toward it throng all, Is it wrong? Silent all? Shall it be blest, my bone chest Blood bursting breast, Dance all! Dance at the golden hoard! What’s valueable, what’s true Blood in vain, in brain, in circulation The feel of dew, its chthonic hue Square of the circle fascination For gold long all, Toward it throng all, Is it wrong? Silent all? Shall it be blest, my bone chest Blood bursting breast, Dance all! Dance at the golden hoard! For gold long all, Toward it throng all, Is it wrong? Silent all? Shall it be blest, my bone chest Blood bursting breast, Dance all! Dance at the golden hoard!

A farrier’s tale thou called my claims, but it’s thy mind that errs in a hermits cave. O, no matter which path thou choose, they all will lead thee only to one quiet grave. Thou spiral downwards - stumbling and running towards what some might call their hell, And at the darker end, ye siblings of clay, thy soul what’s left for thee to sell. Beware thine words - my former dearest friend! The pit thou art talking of could be thine own; Life follows along winding ways of quicksand; A decision made on journey no one can bring down.

All of a sudden my sunshine turned to grey Left in grief so gripping on one flaming day All of a sudden our lives just went astray Death comes always ripping to make a comrade lay away away … Thou were not supposed to leave our common way Thou were not supposed to wither still away And my world order’s lost My world order’s lost My world order lost Forevermore … Holy Martyr on this day of reckoning Reckon up a life against death extreme All memories keep me dreamless wide awake Whatever god there may be wake me up from thy dream World order lost! World order lost! World order lost! All of a sudden my life just turned to pain On these fucked up days it leaves me insane All of a sudden the whole world has declined Death is the cruelest, always to those he leaves behind - he leaves behind And my world order’s lost My world order’s lost My world order lost Forever ... O, now that thou art gone And my world order’s lost I know life is the toll All loving costs O, now that thou art gone and my world order’s lost I know life is the toll all loving costs Holy Martyr on this day of reckoning Reckon up a life against death extreme All memories keep me dreamless wide awake Whatever god there may be wake me up from thy dream World order Lost!–gone!–withered! Forevermore! Lost!–gone!–withered! Forevermore! O, now that thou art gone my world order’s lost I know life is the toll that all loving costs!

Abyssi! Woe to you, who will go, what a poor fit of darkness The thralldom, that we sow, we will gather and bless Blackened heart of the deep drop the lead in pale disgrace Flaxen gossamer to reap a breath to come, a truth to.. ...face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill Face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill Icy chill! Oh for our sake it’s not enough Mendacious ghosts of our past smashed within the gaping clough from the first one to the last Disembodied, could not cease burned away from earths surface Bitter cliffs and lurid teeth, a word to breathe, a voice to... ...raise the faith with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill Face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill What ghosts of yesterday became are spirits of tomorrow aflame With our powers of will we’ll do some wonders and witchings too! Witchings ! Face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill Face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill Sombre chill! Aurora Draconis! Conscience, conscience, dubious antedated, dust in sight Spectre, o my gracious faded shame had been alight See him rise, look, higher up Spirit of hoar-frost, o menace of smoke, no one could ever stop Not ye, not we nor any other... ...face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill Face to face with the risen wraith Still, my will, heed the sombre chill! (Heed the sombre chill) Heed the sombre chill!

Doth not say, that strife nought availeth while you were fed with your own blood Doth not explain, how all else faileth, while you were stabbed and cut Struggle! True, villain, a life to chase, A true faith is my foe in field And I, your master, will embrace my sword, charger and shield Strife! - Learn and earn Life! - Turn and burn Strife! - Moritur et ridet Strife! - Learn and earn Life! - Turn and burn Life! - Moritur et ridet Lions! Attack! Scatter the truth to seal this bond Ash and spark from fatum’s hearth Trumpet of downfall, fanfare behond Awake our dark siblings on earth The end is complete when the lambs are dead Soon, very soon Freedom will come forth when not one fled Croon, so soon Of neither would I ask the favor and boon Soon, still soon I have asked of thee, beloved Horned One Swift be thy retaliation’s run! My faith shouldn’t be thy faith Don’t raise another one’s praise My faith shouldn’t be thy faith Don’t raise another one’s praise Strife! - Learn and earn Life! - Turn and burn Strife! - Moritur et ridet Strife! - Learn and earn Life! - Turn and burn Life! - Moritur et ridet None of us will walk the golden halls or be immortalized in this poor rhyme As in life so in death we’ll be thralls without cenotaph ravaged by time Mars made a fool of you and me Lured with promises and belief ‘gainst paraphrased odd enemy I shall convert I will bereave... Last but not least I need to kill the infidels, which will not see that faith only, reigned by will is blind - idiosyncrasy Intolerance will not find room or inevitable soon become our doom Intolerance must not find room or inevitable become our doom Strife! - Learn and earn Life! - Turn and burn Strife! - Moritur et ridet Strife! - Learn and earn Life! - Turn and burn Life! - Moritur et ridet Doth not say, that strife nought availeth while you were fed with your own blood Doth not explain, how all else faileth, while you were stabbed and cut A faith… A truth… A race… We lose… A lamb…in blood

Time eats mankind at my will... ...as I eat time at my farewell Time heeds mankind at my well... ...as I eat time at my farewell Hast thou seen the world in twighlight going to dim ? Hast thou seen it hurl´d over bloodstained copper brim ? Can thou hear the words spake truth out of this chalice ? Can´t thou feel it hurts my endless polydipsy bliss ? The world’s expiration as long as a half heartbeat Splattered emotions henceforth thundering heartheat Am I the seer ? With eternity in my eyes ? I am the seer ! Cause all born simultaneous dies Feel high speed Milleniums’ greed From beginning to an end Circulations enchantment I feel, oh feel the speed My oaks wither in fractions Of a second after their seed to this past of eternal past reflections Views, ye segments of sights I searched for your death So my blood patterned the might of a million milleniums’ breath A short eye ago dragon lights up likeness of lords Now I see ultimate foes Iron beasts tear human hordes Am I not mortal ? To escape from this eternal curse? I am immortal ! Fucked dead by mankind’s nurse! Feel high speed Milleniums’ greed From beginning to end Circulations enchantment Inter Sensus Silent Leges ! Wilt thou see the sense to see all living die ? Then thou could have a romance with knowledge about my defy What reason canth thou see in a life that only exists To watch fading thee ? Am I an endless repeated diarist ? Diarist ! I cannot be of thine order ‘til reiteration will border Am I human or a god ? Should it a human forget ? Could it a human forgot ? Could it a human for god ? Time heeds mankind at my well... ...as I eat time at my farewell Time eats mankind at my will... ...as I eat time at my farewell

about

"Time heeds mankind at my well as I eat time at my farewell"
is the continuation of
"Beyond the portal, they said, dwells the horned alphabet",
released in 1993.

With the re-occupation of the brand and name,
the original founders of Spectre Dragon went back
to their roots, and created the next chapter in their
long-term story around M'zaarox, the undead dragon,
in his aeons-lasting clash against his antagonists
and their consequences for the powerless.

Nope !
