Track Name: It Is All One
...and so this is how it’s started
As ancient stories recall:
No destruction, no pollution,
No species endangered at all

Bound by the laws of nature,
A flawless work of art –
Such was the order of the world
Of which man forms a part

Timeless
Deathless
Message from the Golden Age
For a perfect
Harmony it has set the stage

They walked a straight path in Oneness,
Paragons of integrity,
Thinking about forever
Instead of only centuries

Timeless
Deathless
Message from the Golden Age
For a perfect
Harmony it has set the stage

Health, potency, spiritual fortitude
Strength, unity, source of plenitude

Timeless
Deathless
Message from the Golden Age
For a perfect
Harmony it has set the stage

Timeless
Deathless
Just believe and be aware
It is all one
All of life everywhere

It is all one
Track Name: The Congregation
Dogma memorized literally,
Lesson still unlearned:
Man's got power over nature
For just a few psalms in return

The congregation of subjugation

The bargain has been made
Or so we expound
The Scriptures say it right out,
The canons of the council resound

The congregation – disorientation

Used to be as one... now those times are gone

The congregation of subjugation
Track Name: The Legacy Of Melusine
Spirit of sacred rivers, fairy of the springs
Full of serenity, bringing on prosperity
She encouraged civilized man to soldier on,
Inspired him to victory over savagery

But thriving comes at a price
Keep striving – make a sacrifice

So behold the legacy of Melusine
Ravages never before seen
Behold the legacy of Melusine
What’s a palette worth without forest green?

...Then she flew away on reptilian wings
And so it came to be, enter disharmony
Fertile soil into desolate wasteland
Karst and aridity, regions in agony

Decreasing – forests fall
Never ceasing urban sprawl

So behold the legacy of Melusine
Ravages never before seen
Behold the legacy of Melusine
What’s a palette worth without forest green?

Behold the legacy of Melusine
Prelude to the revolution of machines…
Track Name: Into The Phalanstery
Revolution, coming on strong,
Our solution for all the world’s wrong
New horizons drawing near
Industry rising, shifting gears

Marching as one to the sound of progress,
Tomorrow shall come today
Engines of change have been kicked into motion,
Just let the steam lead the way
No longer bound by the chains of tradition,
Our course of life’s been set right
Blindly believing while breathing the fumes
Of fires our machines ignite

Mechanized
Industrialized

Pig is living fat, sheep is meat and wool
Pure rationality makes the rules

All things that science cannot replace
Are useful so they’ll live on
What serves no purpose will fall by the wayside
And be forever gone
Just to remain as some woeful exhibits
There in a phalanstery
Along with all feats of engineering
For everyone to see

Mechanized
Industrialized
Track Name: One Species' Fate - Thylacine
A top-of- the-line predator, native to Australia. A wolf-like creature with a striped lower back, a large head and a jaw that is able to open wider than any known mammal. The largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times, declared extinct in the 1930s.

Hunted – believed to be hunted to death

Many believe that the creature still lives on in hiding. There have been thousands of reported sightings. Expedition teams have been searching for evidence. No sighting has been conclusively proven.
Researches and cloning projects have been conducted in order to put the species back on the planet.

Hunted – believed to be hunted to death

The thylacine
Track Name: Karachay, The Concrete Lake
Raising Cold War tensions, founded the Mayak combine
In quest for nuclear power reactors brought on line

In secrecy, fully operational as planned
But accidents, disasters came to pass and it soon got out of hand
In a godforsaken land

A lake in a shell
Of soil and concrete sealed
Poisonous dust in the wind
Above the toxic field

A lake in a shell
Of soil and concrete sealed
Groundwater tainted
Beneath the toxic field

Waste disposal strategies never proven to be profound,
Geiger counters ticking nervously all around

And so the lake Karachay became a dumping ground for waste
Engineers never cared to handle it properly in their haste
The whole land defaced

A lake in a shell
Of soil and concrete sealed
A lethal dose of radiation
Within an hour out in the field

A lake in a shell
Of soil and concrete sealed
The most polluted spot on Earth,
For many decades concealed
Track Name: Richard O'Barry
There in the cove, a secluded bay
No-one can enter, the signs say „keep away”
You’re in harm’s way

There in the cove, their crimes they hide
Got to unveil – the mission’s suicide
If you’re not qualified

Outrage
Outcry
Don’t turn
Blind eyes

The water is red, the water is red
Raise the alarm, there’s still danger ahead
The water is red, the water is red
Future is still hanging on by a thread

There in the cove, the world can’t ignore
A sound wall put up, they’re herded into the shore
And soon they’re no more

There in the cove, the cove of Taiji
Ten thousands slain or taken for captivity
So mercilessly

The water is red, the water is red
Raise the alarm, there’s still danger ahead
The water is red, the water is red
Future is still hanging on by a thread

There in the cove, the remaining few
Freak show attraction is what they’re turned into
So much pain to go through

There in the cove, the cove of Taiji
It takes Ric O’Barry to make everyone see
And to stop the cull finally

The water is red, the water is red
Raise the alarm, there’s still danger ahead
The water is red, the water is red
Future is still hanging on by a thread
Track Name: The Sixth Extinction
…and so this is how it’s all going to end
As today’s forecasts indicate:
Habitat degradation, overexploitation –
Species disappear at an explosive rate

With no-one left to walk the straight path in Oneness
And hold on steadfast to the original purity
Mankind has given the Earth away
In only a matter of centuries

So what’s done is done
Now our time is done

Rain patterns have been changed,
The heat glows like the sun…
Human-induced wave of extinction,
The sixth and final one

It’s too late to reverse
No way to undo this curse

Got a thousand ways to obliterate –
Haven’t got what it takes to recreate
