Fill the void in me

See life beyond the veil

Replace all thoughts from the abyss with cosmic energy

Ignite the flame in thee

Fill out the tree of your life

We are rooted deep in the darkness

And keep growing towards the light

 

Be without your fears

For a thousand years

Search for stillness deep inside

One thought that grows in the abyss of time

Fills up the vast space with matter and life

Free of the darkness that fetters the soul

Find at the source the end of your goal

 

Find the spark in me

See life beyond the dream

Replace your darkest emotions with pure divinity

Ignite the flame in me

Unite with your inner light

We should free ourselves from the shadows

And the bondage of the night

 

Be without your fears

For a thousand years

Be the master of your life

One thought that grows in the abyss of time

Fills up the vast space with matter and life

Free of the darkness that fetters the soul

Find at the source the end of your goal

Fight back your fears forever

Be the master of your life

Learn to unlearn

 

In the beginning there was a timeless, space-less, nothingness

And into that nothingness came a thought, purposeful, all-pervading

So ended the Void

 

Surge, the Demiurge

Shaper of a false universe

Search that deadly urge

Your walls of self-protection are

Walls of self-imprisonment

 

Be without your fears

For a thousand years

Search for stillness deep inside

Strive for harmony in duality

To revise the book of life

There was one thought that grew in the abyss of time

It filled up the vast space with matter and life

Freed from the darkness that fettered the soul

We found at the end our reason, our goal

 

We march on

We’re counting down

To singularity

While we drown

We’re moving on

To master wisdom

To be free
