Track Name: Ceiling of Stars
Track Name: A Sacred Journey
Track Name: For Illumination
Peace befalls the grove
She's enlightened now
WInd plays with her hair
Trees golden in the Autumn sun

No more troubles left to care for
The past was just a dream
Drifts away into a slumber
Her thoughts a racing stream
Illuminated by the sunlight
No shadow cross her face
This girl is rid of all the darkness
Such purity and grace
Track Name: Smoke and Shadows
Ravaged by the fires
Land has turned to dust

Rise as the smoke and shadows fade away
A world so different from before
Watch as the land we once knew breaks away
Hope regained as tears pour

Never had we seen the sun burn through the clouds


Never had I seen
The sun
Through the clouds
