[1. Echoes on the Wind]

It's the calm before the storm
It's the quiet before the war
It's the time when all will be decided.
(All will be decided)
if nobody heeds
The Echoes on the Wind

It's the end of the chain
(Destruction of the fittest)
It's the end of our reign
(We're seen it all before)
It's the end of man's evolution
(The end of evolution)
For nobody heeds
The echoes on the wind

[2. Radioactive Grave]

Do you hear the sirens?
Do you see them burst?
Do you feel the fire?
All the world's a radioactive grave!
(Grunt)

I can hear them crying
I can see the fear
I can feel them dying
Washed away by deadly gamma waves!
(Grunt)

Do you hear them calling
Do you see the hurt?
Do you feel them falling?
(Grunt)

I can hear the wailing!
I can see their wrath!
I can feel them failing!
Washed away by a scorching sea of fire!
(Grunt)
Do you hear the sirens?
Do you see them burst?
Do you feel the fire?
(Grunt)

I can hear them crying
I can see the fear
I can feel them dying
(Grunt)

[3. 2085]

Silence so loud
Not a soul...left alive
Darkness, a shroud
2085
All our dreams have disappeared
They burned down, tree of life
Confirming all that we have feared
2085

Don't give up
Remember how we felt
Fire rushing through our veins

Now's the time
To rise up from our hell
Now's the time to free our brains

The meaning of life is to
Give life meaning
go too fast, move too slow.

Restore the balance
Between thinking and feeling
Open up and let it flow

No side has won
Struggle to...survive
Our quest here is done
2085
All our hopes have disappeared
Our race will...not thrive
Time will not recall the year
2085

Don't give in
Remember all we learned
The spark of life if did ignite

we regained the rage for which we yearned
we regained our will to fight

We must resolve this human equation
We're already dead if we don't try
To welcome challenge, generic variation
Stop the machines, prepare to die!

[4. To the Planet of Red]

[Instrumental]

[5. Spirit of the Wind]

He's the last man alive
(Searching for the answer)
Knowing he won't survive
(To the mystery of live)
relives the past, and dreams of the future
(Dreaming of the future)
soon he'll set free
(And the sleeper will awake)
The Spirit of The Wind

[6. Complete the Circle]

Make us whole, Migrator soul
Follow me home, Complete the Circle
We must survive, Restore our lives
The way I'll show, Complete the Circle [x2]

Send back visions
Into the past
Of war and decay
Hear the final cries!

I see them dying
We have to teach them
Migrator soul

We're gain over to fly
We're already die
We found a way

I know we're knocking at the end
Listen to the One man

We gave them a language
What did they say
What did they learn

We have no chance
We are the future
We are the pain
Complete the Circle!
