Track Name: The Personal Legend

Trust your heart
Never give up

See all things are one
Fill your heart with enthusiasm
Take the right path hidden in
Your own deepest dreams

Travel 'round
Seek your treasure
Subjugate your bars
Wherever you're bound
Pursue your personal legend

It is your only mission on mother earth

Ride (Don't Look)
Run (Don't Look)
Don't look back

Can't stop dreaming
Track Name: The Omens
When each day's just the same
We're in a lie
Frequently we will fail
To recognize
All good things on the way
We'll blind our eyes
All should take care of the
Sun as it rises

Follow the signs, don't miss any of them
No heedlessness allowed, no shallowness
It speaks through stones, lizards, crickets and ravens
It stretches through rivers, fields, clouds and flames
It shows itself through joy, struggle and pain
Beware and be aware of your own weapons

The world speaks in many ways
Everything is an omen
Got to learn the language of the world
Which does not deal with words
Right when a blessing is ignored
A sudden curse may occur

Omens can't do any harm
Omens will show you the path
Omens are scattered on earth
Omens are deep in the heart

No way to hold the river back
Track Name: Man Of Theory | feat. Ben Ward (Orange Goblin)
There are men who seek cures for their lives
Antidotes are but easy to find

Symbols obscure, odd food for the mind
Blinkers occlude the smart side of the eye
Theorist stubborn, only codes to make out
Silence holds more answers than I thought

There are things books can't tell
Given schemes don't work well
What's inward: fear of failure
You can't turn lead into gold

Mercury means nothing to me
Salt and kings, dragon wings
Mean nothing to me
Turning dreams into reality
Destiny is all I want to achieve

Once a young man came to me and sighed
"Stop your mouth, your mania is to simplify"
Then he fell silent, his head bent down
After all he couldn't even testify
Well, the world was made for you and I
Alchemy could be learnt in one's daily life
So, the man got vexed with me
But my only care was to keep up the ride

To fail is to learn
