Ascendancy

"Ascendancy" was written in summer 2019. The lyrics are deeply connected to the GrandMaester.

According to wasteland lore, he received the words in a trance state during a magick ritual during a partial eclipse of the full moon.

Lyrics

where is my showdown?
where is my epic twist?
when reality kicks in again
I struggle to end up in bliss

northern lights shape my sky
enjoying the absence of light
a lunar eclipse of mind
I haven‘t been the best of me
for quite some time
you haven‘t met the best of me

down? not right ...

transcendance
towards my home

(transcendance) my life began
(ascendancy) where fear would end
(transcendance) tranquillity in all I do
I sleep with faith to find myself

(find myself)

I‘m searching for myself
till all the pieces fit
this chapter’s coming to an end
now love is black

that can‘t be all, a new beginning
from the start is what I need
a silver lining in the dark
where do I start?

down? not right ...

(transcendance) my life began
(ascendancy) where fear would end
(transcendance) tranquillity in all I do
I sleep with faith to find myself
the set of a cruel reality, I fade it out
but there’s still days that shadows take me down

you‘re far from me
a beautiful yet burning star
the symphony of summer nights
so bright, so cruel, so deep, so far
my past?
so close and yet so far

transcendance
ascendancy

mark my words
ban the chaos inside
I still feel you inside my veins
I still feel you in my mind

ascendancy ... as darkness falls

(transcendance) my life began
(ascendancy) where fear would end
(transcendance) tranquillity in all I do
I sleep with faith to find myself
the set of a cruel reality, I fade it out
illuminate the shaded path of truth
so some day I may
find myself like born anew
