Can't move an inch
But for the act to
Leave fingerprints
Freedom Farewell
Look in the lens
Answer the questions
Are you a threat?

Nec plus ultra

After all the grabbing, it's time to bite the dust
Leave behind the breaches of my trust
Cleaning up the mess is up to us

Non plus ultra

Now that all hands are tied
We're panic stricken
Wealth out of sight
Demolition, the damaged pride
The Price of Ambition

Nec plus ultra

The current system leads to profit seeking deeds
Leave behind the traces of our blood
Now the course for change is up to us

Non plus ultra

Access is now denied
We're panic stricken
Wealth out of sight
Intuition, forgotten guide
The price of supression

Terre eos vi
Augearis
Perde eos vi
Nobis imperium

Can't move an inch
But for the act to
Leave fingerprints
Freedom Farewell
Look in the lens
Answer the questions
Will you behave as required?

When we think the end is here
With nearly all faith gone
There is hope along the way
And there a new age dawns

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those
who falsely believe that they are free
- Goethe -

Nobis victoria

Non plus ultra

When we think the end is here
And our faith will disappear

Chasing our addictions we're stunting our growth
Once we get rid of this ballast we'll be able to
Restore the balance and distribute our wealth

Amazing song! I think it stands out from the others on the album with its feeling and structure, but maybe I feel this way cause this one was obviosuly the first full song I heard. Still I love it, the lyrics, the vocals; it's a good opening song imo.

Ah RTS! I remember hearing the very first notes from the first teaser,and then it was the very first full song I have listened to DYU,and also my most played one to date
It's surely an Epica classic,it sounds like a traditional song of their 'trademark' but more bombastic,powerfull,epic with the wonderful guitar solo<3 Simone's vocals are also very beautiful,Mark's grunts are excellent and I also love Arien's speaking part.The choir remins me a bit of the one used in 'The Last Crusade' but that might be just because they are both from the 'A New Age Dawns' series.

I think it's one of my faves from DYU actually.

It certainly is amazing, it took me a while to open up well but i'm a fan now Wink
The choirs, Simone and Mark are all at their best

I didn't like the song, but then...
I'm playing it over and over now!
When Simone starts to sing for the first time in this song....ah...my heart is ready to explode! *__*

Mark comments on the lyrics' line about the redistribution of wealth (from official forum):

what I want to say is that the current system of greed is doomed to fail in the end.

Money, greed and jealousy caused something in people to take more and more.
companies are often owned by the most cold recktless buisinessmen as they got to these positions by buying others out, using their elbows and other psychological tricks.

We do not end up with the best products but with those who are best advertised.
With normal products it doesn't need that bad after all but the same happens with medicins. So our health, one of our greatest goods is a toy in the hands of buisinessmen.

In the end most of the money is owned by a little group of people, I think this is not how it should be.

We are naturally beings who do take care of each other, we have just 'forgotten' it in a way. The more we share, the more we give, the more we'll get in return as well

I didn't really like this one at first, but now I think it's one of the most powerful on the album. The lyrics...the atmosphere...the contrasts...the epicness...
I love it a lot
especially when Simone says, "The End is here....and our faith will dissapear"
The choirs are also awesome
