‘The Millennial Heartbeat’ is the genesis of the ocean and the thanatography of the land, a testimony of the forces of nature and its frailty alike.

Track Name: The Millennial Heartbeat Part I
No sound
Only silence
We are unbound
By your hands
We are born in twilight
All forlorn
Only rumbling from a
From a heartbeat long ago

Who brought the blight?
Senses all impaired and
Who caused the fright?
Flow time would gather
By a caprice of nature?
Who started the race?
Headed by him
Who banished the grace
Never will we know
Our invocation
Was a heartbeat long ago

The life you gave to us was merely the start
A legion none will ever know
Unending wisdom we've found, the ancient heart
That we felt beating down below
Long ago

No light
For the eye to see
And we denied
We are born in twilight
All forlorn
Only rumbling from a
From a heartbeat long ago

Long ago
Track Name: The Millennial Heartbeat Part II
Slowly wading through the void
Firstborn of the unalloyed
To escape the depth so dark
Drawn to everlasting light
Parting the waves of time
You will tear the world apart
Tear the world apart

Free from the legion most invisible
Broke the first of the shining souls
Into the light, for all to see
Inverse convergence of millenia
By the power of gravity
Into the light's eternity

It's time itself that lay with
Father Light to bear the children
The dawn of hope that's even
Brighter than a thousand suns
With dying hunger to prevail
Over those born so weak and frail
For they are
Standing high above
On the shoulders of...

From the gardens of the wise
In your folly you would rise
Just to watch the dawn of time
Dare to conquer the unknown
A fearless vanguard you have grown
Holy mountains for you to climb
Track Name: The Millennial Heartbeat Part III
Just when the last of earthen marvel's unveiled
When all the buried treasures' wardens have failed
When man has found at last the power he craves
It's only then his mind will turn to the waves

Led by their kind the blind are going to fall
Their thanatography the greatest of all
Loud words are spoken down from crumbling ground
Until the sea consumes their treacherous sound

Rising higher
Higher and higher
Soil to mire
Swallowed all the same
Skyward fire
Rising higher
Monument of flame

Darkest clouds, they too shall pass
Sun not quenched, but only hid
All our shelters fortified
Not be saved by will nor wit
Father please, forgive thy children
For we knew not what we did

The mindless ones who would accept willingly
The iron shackles of the cursed gravity
Shall perish and once more will all become one
And all their deeds will be as though never done
