I. Hold in Derision

Pioneering, big breakthroughs
Proceeded by the opposition
Hold in derision all that's new
Afraid to lose their own esteem

Scorn shall be directed at the genius
Represses subtle theories of the light
to the questions of life

Quantum physics leads us to
Answers to the great taboos
We create the world around us
God is every living soul

Science, spirituality
Will have to meet along the way and
We need new drifts, another view
Expand our grip on the cryptic soul

Hope is more than a postponed disappointment

Non intellegens nil explicas
Videre nolens nil capies
Non intellegens nil explicas
Incognita non vides

Open your Sahasrara

II. Children of the Light

Light creates us all
Pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful
Life delights us all

Light creates us all
Pride divides us all
Life is meaningful
The soul survives us all

Misled by science
Our wake up call
Conditioning cannot fool us 'till the end

III. Bardo Thodol

Guide us safety
through the gates of death

IV. Paragons of Perfection

Nothing here will be the same
I'll see the world through different eyes and
I was given clarity
And the wisdom I can't deny

All that we can ever see
Until we leave this frail existence
Is just a shadow of reality
Death is not the final instance

It's not your time
You have to go back... back!
Now!

No, no, I don't want to return,
please let me stay here, don't make me go back

Go back, you've got work to do

We're not alone, we are all one.

Nothing here will be the same
The smallest bit is as big as nature
Our limited capacities
Give us trouble to comprehend

We are linked in every way
And we're strong as our weakest fragment
Every word that we convey
Is an act with consequences

V. The Harsh Return

Light creates us all
Pride will make us fall
Life is meaningful
Life delights us all

Light creates us all
Pride divides us all
Life is meaningful
The soul survives us all

Greed will make us fall
Light will bind us all


------------------------------------
The greatest Epica song? Might be! Very Happy It's almost 14 minutes long but I definately do not feel it, it passes very fast to me. This means it's really interesting. The structure is so complex and diverse. And every note seems to have its perfect place. Everything just fits in its place so well. The atmosphere is amazing, so gripping. Grunts, screams, Simone's vocals, choir... well, simply perfect to me. As well as one of the best Mark's lyrics. So much things happening in this song, you've got to enjoy it. And I just love the spoken part very much. Wink

I just don't have enough words to explain my love for this song.I actually didn't care much for it when I read the tracklist,I thought it was another anti-religious song (and don't get me wrong i love the songs from TETS series but I just didn't wanted one on DYU) .but when I heared the preview of the song from amazon.com I felt it so....I can't explain I just knew it was going to be my favorite.
Than,in the night when I first listened to DYU,before the ending of 'Our Destiny' I started to cry uncontrolable because the moment has COME.I was left jawdop,it was too much epicness for me,such a complex song,variated,heavy,melodic combined in such a perfect way.
Lyrically it's also one of my favorites.I was never interested so much in science but this song totally got me into it.Proof that Mark is just a genius.
My favorite part is probably Children Of The Light,it gives me goosebumps when Simone sings the high notes.I also have to agree with its lyrics a lot without light we are nothing in the universe.
I love how fast it switches to the acoustic tempo nearly the end,it's so peaceful,it makes you feel like in Heaven(obviously).When Simone starts to sing it simply makes me cry.Then comes the speaking part,which I disagree with the reviewer that said it's a cliche.It's not it fits well with the song,and Arien's acting is fabulos.Then comes the guitar solo which IMO it's the highlight of the song.Isaac has done an amazing work with it.Then the chrous comes again and ends in a very epic way.

14 minutes of eargasm.'Nuff said.My favorite song from DYU,and my favorite Epica song of all the time .The new CtO

Well,you know,some of the Epica songs have a theme agianst the abuse of the organized religion(such as christianity and islam).The suite's name is 'The Embrace That Smothers' which contains songs like 'Cry For The Moon','Facade Of Reality','Seif Al Din','Death Of A Dream',Fools Of Damnation' etc.I tink I shall create a special ythread for it becauke KoH has nothing to do with these songs

i was searching for a word to explain this song but you got it. 14 minutes of eargams Very Happy
i feel the same as "this is the new CtO"
it was really excited when i first listened to it. it's so f*cking heavy the whole song except it's so damn nice soft slow when simone sings the slow part. voices from heaven i'm telling you

check out this page (if you haven't) and listen what kind of a beast Arien is in this song Cool

Sorry for DP but today I found the meaning of 'sahasrara' in a philosophy book Smile

From what I read on it sahasrara is the most important of the seven energetic fields(or chakra) of human soul,body and consciousness.

Sahasrara means in the hindu tradition the awake from ilusion,discovering the truth,It also somehow related to the songs's lyrics mainly 'We;'e not alone,we are all one'.And hje line 'Open your sahasrara' means to open your mind,to think big, to go away from the lies and to realize that the truth is only one.

Well,that's mostly my interpreatation because the book give it a very subtle explenation.If my rambling doesn't make any sense,then read it on wikipedia Wink :

Well it's called 'Codul lui Oreste'(Oreste's Code in romanian).It's written by a new author and show producer from my country,named Oreste Teodorescu.His book shows up philosophical concepts,but also sides of human's mind,spiritualism and many other interesting stuff,including religiuos and mytholog stuff as well Razz Yes,many things that can be found on Epica's lyrics that's why I bought it Wink

This book is very new,I think it was released less than a month ago,so I doubt there's an english version. Neutral
