Above dreams of pleasure

  Shall we sail off the edge of the world
Fall forever and never look behind

Και, όχι, δε θα το δεχθώ,
Ένα δεύτερο ακόμα μακρυά σου.
Μία στιγμή, μιαν ιαχή πολέμου.
Ένας Τρωικός Πόλεμος στο Ίλιον
Μαίνεται στα πόδια σου, ωραία Ελένη,
Κι εσύ, τυφλωμένη απ' τον Πάρη, παρακολουθείς.

   Βλέπω τον άσπρο σου χιτώνα,
Μέρος της θεϊκής θωριάς σου,
Ορόσημο της παρθενίας, της ωραίας σου ψυχής.
Πράγματι, πώς να μην ερωτευτώ
Μια του Ολύμπου κόρη; Μία
Γυναίκα, της Αφροδίτης ένα παιδί;

   Ο πόλεμος μαίνεται, ιέρειά μου,
Και το μέλλον γίνεται παρελθόν.
Εξήντα μέρες κλειδωμένος στον Ουρανό,
Κι η Αθηνά μου παραδίδει τα όπλα του Αχιλλέα.
"Κατέβα στο Σκάμανδρο ποταμό, κάνε τις αριστείες,
νιώσε το αίμα να κυλάει στις άδειες σου αρτηρίες".

   "Είμαστε ένα ψέμα, μια απεικόνιση
του τίποτα. Μια κενή έκφραση, ψίθυροι ξεχασμένων ψαλμών".
Έτσι μου είχες πει.

Ο ανόητος, πόσο πολύ σε πίστεψα,
Και ούτε προσπάθησα, με λίγο δόλο,
Τα δάκρυα να συγκρατήσω.

Setting in at dawn

Promises are spoken, and promises are broken, electric eyes that never let you see them in the day 

When you go to bed at night
You have no idea what's coming next
But throught the stained glass comes light
Keeping you awake thoughout the hex
   - Call it Deum Ex

When you try to rest your soul and eyes
Setting down your mind, late at dawn
Yet, the Styx of time flows and flies
Off the window, forever foregone
   - And never withdrawn

Each night bears a thousand cries
Each day tells a thousand nights

Watching, waiting for sleep
To come get you by
While the thoughts and fears
Kiss your bliss goodbye
   - And never ask you why

Your train of thoughts just departed
And you 're alone in the dock

Your ticket, where everything started,
Bears witness to your shock
   - You 're starting to run amock!


Each night has cloudy skies
Each night has rainfalls of greatest size

A thousand nights
Each night tells a thousand lies

Hey, child of fear
Be brave and hold your tear!
Your fears are all lies
Each day has a thousand nights

In each breath of life, don't believe what you see
Reality's you, be who you want to be
So let me just advise
Don't hide under a disguise

Each day has a thousand nights

But, still (The sea)

Since the edge of time
Till the age of Gold
People enslaved their souls
Hearts were destroyed and minds were sold

Stars collide, planets are covered with strife
Atoms unite, together create life
Cities became villages, they became homes
People bewared others, and fractured their bones

But, still, the sea continues to be
Still, life proves reality
Still, she encircles mortal's mind
Inside her immortality

Thunder and rain were thought as our Gods
Stargazers sought fatality's end
People used to praise stone and steel
And never aspired their knowledge to extend

Then, imagination generated
And developed a brute's train of thoughts
Yet, a body always changes shape,
Though a soul inside it rots

But, still, the sea continues to be
Still, life proves reality
Still, she encircles mortal's mind
Inside her immortality

So, watch out,
 for your light might burn out!
So, look out,
 'cause the world's a place not to hang around!
So, find out
 if your frantic life's getting better
And you'll live out
Your age's adverse hatred
