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.

Track Name: Omphalos be yeast
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
Track Name: Within a knot (Eyewall)
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
Track Name: Treasure chest, thy measure
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!
Track Name: A farrier's tale
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.
Track Name: Ae fond order and a border farewell
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!
Track Name: Aurora draconis
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!
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: Inter sensus silent leges
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
