Track Name: Schopenhauer's Deathbed
To live is to will
Will brings suffering...
With awareness, grows passion
A bitter flower for all!

Eternal is the passion
A relentless beat that shapes all there is
Life is death but it takes time
Will brings suffering

Never I fade out, never I cry out
It's ending today
Serenity of death shakes the old man's dimming glare...
Track Name: Love and Strife on Etna
And he came by Etna
With fiery eyes and breath
What strife takes love gives back
So below, as above!

(Fire to earth, earth to water, water to air)

He took a few steps forward
Towards the fiery hole
Flames captured his gaze
And he spoke to those behind

O dead! I can't be killed once again
I reside by my grave
Where I give myself down to the flames...

(Fire to earth, earth to water, water to air)
