Track Name: Homeland
Beneath the great vast land
There is a Subterranean Realm
Dwelled by Drows and other sinister Creatures
Underdark's a place for those who seek their burdens,
their vices and obsessions.

Deep into the caverns
Across the giant mushroom forests
Lays the great Drow city-state
Ah! Treachery, treachery, hostility and war
are nothing more than a game of social reconnaissance.

Queen of Spiders,
Matron Mothers pledged their allegiance,
in the services of their unholy goddess.
Even brothers kill each other,
in order to gain favor of the Spider-Queen:
"Oh, Houses of our Homeland let's worship our protector Lolth."

Disgraceful creatures, wrapped in deceit.
And thus a futile war begins...
Menzoberranzan,
You betrayed your own children.
Track Name: Shades Over The Empire
The earth is shaking as the evil archon rises.
Galbatorix, Dragon Rider and Conqueror.

For many years suffering has plundered everything
As orders delivered:
"Kill the Riders, leave none alive.
For we shall obey our master.
Go forth Empire and unsheathe your swords."

These words of Darkness were floating in the air
Evidence of the new era of a tyrant.
Empire of Doom, Empire in Oblivion.

Flames arose, the shadows had covered the wooden realm.
Urgals took over the mountains
Because Dragon Riders won't sing again
And Dragons won't cry with glory.

Galbatorix, Dragon Rider and Conqueror
Fate has chosen you as this land's parasite.
As long as you sit on that throne
Shades will rise all over your Empire.
Blessed be the one that will make you suffer.
Blessed be his name (Shadeslayer)
The gods will choose that one to vanquish
All the shades your gloomy crown has shed

And when that time will come
Light will cover the night
And Death will be ashamed.
Track Name: Helios The Dark
Icarus:
Father,
We left behind the monarch's imprisonment
For we must live in peace.
Those chains although turned into arrows
From Helios torching bow.
I should have listened to you.
I should have done that once.
And now as my dreams are falling with me,
I'll rest inside the arms of the sea.

Helios:
Optimism would make you suffer not
If you'd defied yourself just once.

Icarus:
Those chains I bore...
Those tears I've shed...
All for nothing...
My blackest fear has come into life
Oh Helios the Dark while Darkness spreads her gaze,
I declare you culpable for not being bright enough...
Who should have covered the shame of the world?
At least I will be free...

As the sun listened to the words of that boy he said with a voice so loud,
That even time bowed before it:

Helios:
'Εργον εμού ο σκώτος υμών,
Έργα υμών το φως εμού

The time began to flow again and the father spoke with a hand on his chest:

Father:
Oh Sun, Burn the shames of all mankind.
Annihilate if you will the purity of candles.
And darkness with your petrifying gaze
Embrace the torture of Illumination.
