Booklet LyricsEdit

"When you gaze upon the flickering distant stars that set the night sky ablaze with brazen diamonds, has it ever occurred to you that the chance is great that someone, or rather something, is glaring back at you?
If such a creature would make contact with human beings, in what shape would such a message be? Megalithic antennas throughout the world continuously scan the skies for such cosmic perplexities, and on one fateful day they might very well find a pattern of cryptic logic in the empyrean waves of sonar resonation.
There is only one thing that can be said with some certainty; if such a stellar scroll would lead to contact between our two races, the destructiveness of mankind would see to that only one species would remain.
"

A cryptic equation

of a pulsating light

An unearthly riddle

from beyond the starlit sky


Message of unknown design

Heavenly but non-divine

Sent by intelligent minds

An echo through space and time


Fractal figures, deciphered lines

Stellar visit is nigh


See the fire in the cloudless night

Bright reflections of lights in my eyes

Now we will see

will our contact be

salvation from afar

a guiding star


Solo: Holmlid


A cold observation

of systematical eyes

Our demeanor transfigured

A calculated demise


Contact with alien life

Heavenly but non-divine

Communication with cosmic minds

that travelled through space and time


See the fire in the cloudless night

Bright reflections of lights in my eyes

Now we will see

will our contact be

salvation from afar

A guiding star


Solo: Mörck

Solo: Holmlid

Solo: Magnusson

Solo: Mörck


Complete fulfillment of ancient signs

A swift destruction by higher minds


See the fire in the cloudless night

Bright reflections of lights in my eyes

now we will see

that our contact will be

destruction from afar

One final war
