    Can anyone scan the liner notes for "In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns"? I'm looking for all the personnel and songwriting credits in the liner notes.

    Thanks so much!

    I Am (God)
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron)

    I oppose the light
    I Am the bringer of storms and eternal fire
    Into the night
    I am the ruler of this mortal world
    Under a pale night sky blood rains from above
    Curdled and spoiled

    I am the walker of etherial worlds
    Marked by the shadows
    Eternally yours
    Unblessed be
    Behold the vastness of the sorrow
    I see no traces of light through the silence of night
    I am the earth

    Shattered images
    A grain of salt
    What we once were, what we once lost, cursing the dawn of man to hell
    Black candles burning
    Darkness and death
    Beyond the light of the sun
    Make no mistake
    I am God

    Damnation
    Harvesting the ruin of a another failed
    Creation
    The sign of evil, the path of the wolf
    Invocation
    In the morning twilight, elemental wisdom
    Elimination
    Of the weak, slit their throats to the spine

    I am God
    In the burning darkness, death and beyond
    I am God
    The center of the earth shall be my throne


    In Death Comes The Great Silence
    (Lyrics and music: Sorceron)

    Another day passes by and
    I am running out of excuses
    Running out of words to describe...
    And as my heart becomes dust a final exit becomes clear
    I stand beyond the sun with the comfort of emptiness inside

    Because I could never swallow your false ideals
    And I will never follow your god at the heels

    Dark waters running deep as my hatred
    Only the moon will witness my revenge
    And the blood stained snow reeks of your invention
    But in the loneliness of winter I am abomination
    Oh these words flow like the blood of mankind
    Cold dreamless sleep is beckoning and in death comes the great silence


    Infernal Divide
    (Lyrics and music: Sorceron)

    As the daylight withers and night falls over the earth
    Weltering in sadness
    Over a bitter loss
    You are the tragedy
    You are the land of no return
    I will watch the sky for a sign
    Will you wet the earth when you weep from above

    Rain pours down like wisdom
    Awakening the sleeping
    We have waited an eternity for the return
    When they shall rule again

    My existence
    Infernal divide
    A monument of the past
    Descending


    The World Beyond
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron, Ellyllon)


    Dwells no man into this infinity
    For as the last glow of the sun sets
    I feel an affinity towards the unity
    Between mankind and his divinity

    And they shall live out their lives
    Like an atom in infinity
    Void of their true destiny

    Though all of this holds a globe of significance to the coarse corruption
    The two thousand years of false assumptions

    So I gaze to the stars and seek the strange wisdom of the worlds beyond
    Empowered by the pulse of the cosmos to leave this world behind
    There is an exit

    I see nothing as the last glow of the sun sets
    I walk this earth like sand in the wind
    Drifting on and on into the years

    And they have lived out their lives like atoms in infinity
    Void of their true destiny

    Driven to madness the moon speaks to no one
    Spheres of darkness perpetual through the aeons and beyond
    Into the moonlight
    Upon the shoulders of ignorance
    They ask us a question
    One thousand words, read the writing on the walls


    Acolytes
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron, Ellyllon)


    Thy kingdom of heaven is foundering
    A foulness to the race of man
    Where they worship in the lands of the northern
    Where elder gods still lie in slumber

    In the dim light behold the vengeance of the infinite abyss

    Their seasons
    Their blood
    There is nothing but reservoirs of darkness
    Their seasons
    Their blood
    There is nothing

    Rise
    Stricken with fear and repent
    Rise
    Stricken with fear
    The darkest clouds form an alliance
    They're pounding away at the dawn
    Rise
    Where the cold waters tread fear


    Thy kingdom of heaven is foundering
    A foulness to the race of man
    The blackest of tides is rising
    Storming across the heavens

    In the dim light behold the vengeance of the infinite abyss

    Divine diseases
    Ailments of infinity
    Dwells no part of empyrean virtue
    I bid you haste
    I bid you haste

    Their seasons
    Their blood
    There is nothing but reservoirs of darkness
    Their seasons their blood
    There is nothing

    Rise
    Stricken with fear and repent
    Rise
    Stricken with fear
    The darkest clouds form an alliance
    They're pounding away at the dawn
    Rise
    Where the cold waters tread fear




    A Thousand Suns
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron, Ellyllon)

    Those treasured wisdoms were forgotten over time
    Holds a message stolen from the stars where we live in the shadows
    Here in the womb of a thousand suns

    The treasured wisdom forgotten over time
    Along the shore of the cosmos stolen from her embrace
    And so we stay here waiting for the call
    Waiting for the call

    The current situation demands contemplation
    War wages
    The battle still rages on and on and on

    That is what we were
    This is what we have become
    A reflection of purity cannot tell a lie
    And as the sun fades on the surface of the earth
    We are hell-bound

    Along the shores tonight
    Scatter the ashes of a fallen empire
    The time is nigh

    Like dark mantles under the night sky
    This night will last forever

    They fell prey to the corruption, now they prey to the corrupted

    That is what we were
    This is what we have become
    A reflection of purity cannot tell a lie
    And as the sun fades on the surface of the earth
    We are hell-bound


    Into the Ashes
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron, Ellyllon)


    You call from the shadows and curse my blood in the wind
    You speak in riddles
    The substance which is chipping away at the garden so balefully

    I will hunt you
    And even your god can't save you
    When the wind blows
    A mourning morning whispers serenity
    There's none to be had


    I will curse the very soil you walk until you drown in your own shame
    And feel the sweet kiss of death
    Across your cold skin
    Under the pale horned moon

    Their blood is stricken and cursed to the outer hells

    We conquer
    All in the sign of evil
    Into the cold embrace
    As the wind blows through the willows
    And the signature of man
    Has blinded the stars and the infinities beyond
    Reclaim the alter
    Rewrite the books

    I will haunt you
    And even your god can't save you
    When the wind blows
    A mourning morning whispers serenity
    There's none to be had


    Smoke & Mirrors
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron)

    In a dark corner of the room she sits in silence
    Behind the mask of beauty lies the truth
    Taken away

    The land has suffered under your heedless reign
    There is no end

    The land has suffered under your heedless reign
    Where is the end?

    Your love is like a sea without a shore

    You wear the crown of shadows well my friend but the truth of the matter is,
    Your stranger then a stranger in a strange land

    Your love is like a sea without a shore
    Your love is a curse holding me under its terrible spell
    I should not be here

    You wear the crown of shadows well my friend but the truth of the matter is,
    Your stranger then a stranger in a strange land
    I tried to reason
    I tried to comprehend
    This is treason



    Empyrean: Into The Cold Wastes
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron)

    Oh in the night skies
    Burns a darkness that will enlighten all of mankind as we know
    And it will glow with so bright a light showing us a clear path once invisible

    But in the stage of decay...
    Enshrine the forgotten secrets of the earth buried by angels in starlit chambers
    This is the sound; listen for the sound of the trumpets
    Through the eyes of creation I see the final stages of decay
    Beneath the burning palaces of heaven and into the pits of sands
    I watched thy kingdom come crumbling down

    Wrought their own destruction
    Subterranean origin
    Cataclysm casting the world into the dark
    The winds of wrath are howling into the cold wastes

    Under Hell
    Under Satan


    The Departure
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron)

    I will ride again
    Beyond the moon wandering
    In the land of the dead I am a king

    (King) of these negative forces
    Reclaim the earth and burn down the heavens
    A god who’s kingdom lays within
    But the cruel frosts and wintry winds
    Make it difficult for me to protect you from the cold
    These icy shores are never...

    ...Ending this perennial cycle
    And if I'm not back by dawn please call my name

    Run into the night
    Your snow covered heart is dripping away but mine is shattering in the coldest of winds


    Floods
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron)

    A fortress of evil surrounded by darkness
    I move through the shadows
    I like the feeling of having you with me
    The power of the ancient course through my veins as we drink from the everlasting fountains
    We are gods in this state

    I am your keeper
    This is shelter
    This is everything you ever wanted
    Ever needed
    I am your keeper
    In the eye of the winter
    This is everything you ever wanted
    Ever needed
    This is your sanctuary

    Oh I cast my hand out and bring forth the floods unto the lands
    And cast away all amongst the living from the earth
    May your spirits cry for all of an eternity though I'll hear them nay
    There's but one refuge once the storm is summoned
    Can your hear me? Can you hear me?

    I am your keeper
    This is shelter
    This is everything you ever wanted
    Ever needed
    I am your keeper
    In the eye of the winter
    This is everything you ever wanted
    Ever needed
    This is your sanctuary

    Awaken the spirits
    Returning your memories
    Rescuing forever

    Flood my soul with calamities
    But my heart is beating me into reality
    But now I'm leaving
    I'll walk away from this
    As the fire burns because these curses have no cure

    I call out to the below
    With hell in my eyes there's no turning back
    I'll stay here forever
    Your precious flesh is my only token of your memory


    The Departure
    (Lyrics: Sorceron, Music: Sorceron)

    I will ride again
    Beyond the moon wandering
    In the land of the dead I am a king

    (King) of these negative forces
    Reclaim the earth and burn down the heavens
    A god who’s kingdom lays within
    But the cruel frosts and wintry winds
    Make it difficult for me to protect you from the cold
    These icy shores are never...

    ...Ending this perennial cycle
    And if I'm not back by dawn please call my name

    Run into the night
    Your snow covered heart is dripping away but mine is shattering in the coldest of winds
