Wander from awakening to passing
and embrace doctrines that hold
the coveted golden grail of surety
Belief in blissed intervention
guiding all to worship the ones
that save the world from tragedy
with the cloak of security
Promise of strength
Zenith of faith…and hope.
The savior bounds toward the light
as the door comes into sight
Passing through to save the night
Traveling through time
borne with a vision
The chosen can see
perils all are blind to
All must be warned
and must be saved
This is your reason
But they can’t see you
and they can’t hear you
As you sigh
Trapped behind the one way mirror door of eternity
How to switch the logic of a given destiny?
Empowered to control and achieve to motivate
How to chart the future…from its certain fate?
Caught within the boundless circle loop…of solitude
Not as strong as all believe..accustomed to the elder’s cry
The gate can only open when the stars converge to certitude
Portents rain on open eyes, the distant sigh of a sun gone by
Did you think I could come through the door?
Did you hope I would fall on the sword?

Lyrics by Chris Rudolf
WORLD CLASS HEAVY PROG, "neo-grunge"
I chose the short-but-sweet "Shrine of Pearl" as my favourite for it's gorgeous hook. However, it is the following compositions to which I would draw the discriminating proghead's close attention: "Bleed", "Mountains of the Sky" and "The Network". They are... well... masterpieces!
