01. The Messenger

(François Vachon)

He once came as the lamb
He died for men
He’s coming back again
The lion brings the end

Harvester of pain
Death Warrior
Messenger of God
Holy Martyr

When a seal is broken
Death is on it’s way
Seven signs will happen
Then, the End of days

The Messenger was sent
To try again
Can people understand
The coming curse of man?

Only sacrifice
Can save us
Life given for a soul
To save us

Chorus : The black sun in the sky
Hear the last song of the sparrow
The red moon shining bright
Feel the world become a shadow

A time of ill Omen
Damnation Day
A child as been chosen
A soul cast away

Everything seems so hopeless
Darkness falls into nothingness

Chorus : The tide is turning red
Reflecting a moon of sorrow
The icy desert sands
Spectres in a world of shadows

The Messenger of light
Will bring new hope to mankind

The death moon shinig bright
Feel the world become a shadow

The black sun in the sky
The last song of the sparrow
The tide is turning red
Reflecting a moon of sorrow

02. A Shadow in the Darkness

(François Vachon)

Now, here, I’M feeling like I’m nowhere
Just like a shadow in the darkness

Yeah! Some days are gone, some dreams are broken
But reality means : Something to achieve
Something in which I gotta choose to believe

Yeah! The only way for me to live
To push myself hard and to do my own thing
Into my mind
I’m always in exile

Yeah! Some days are gone, some days forgotten
It’s easy to think we were left alone here
Left in a world
Made of misconception

Chorus : Where are you going
Does it make sense or anything clear???
You cast a shadow
When the sun disappears

Sometimes emptiness
Can bring you the changes you’ve left
You’re someone and then, someone else
A shadow in the darkness

I am becoming who I am
Walking through this « shadowland »
A part of me should understand
The other is not it’s burden

Am I blessed, am I damned?
Am I lost digging the past of man
A part of me should understand
« Make today worth it ‘til the end! »

Chorus : You think you all know
What make sense and everything clear
You cast a shadow
When the sun disappears

And when emptiness
Will bring you the changes you’ve left
I’m sure you will never forget
The shadow in the darkness (X2)

03. Insurrection

(François Vachon)

In the fall of 1837
A desperate choice is made

There’s dissidence between the people
Dividing trust and faith

For all the years of threads and silence
And those of swallowed pride

Now, our faith is in our hands
It’s time to defy

To suppress our need of freedom
They’ve colonized us all

To sanitize our will to be
They’ve declared Martial law

We raise our faith beyoond Religion
Our fists to the Crown

Now, our fate is in our hands
This time we got to try

The opressor is wasting our lands
With terror and anger and tyranny

In the village the tocsin rings
« Redcoats » are coming, these hellish times will end

Chorus : We’ve thought so hard
To stand tall with pride
To bring power to the people

And in the end
No more left as orphans
We won’t become a stillborn nation

We won’t become a stillborn nation

Chorus : We’ve thought so hard
To stand tall with pride
With the most sincere intentions

There is no end
(If we) Let our sons understand
(That) History justifies our actions

04. A Question of Honor

(François Vachon)

…And so begins the end
Tonight, in this Garden

One thing I’d like to say
If there is another way…???...
Father, take this pain away from me!!!
That night, as I walked in the light
The moon, like a pearl in the sky…
the voice of a man came to me
So helpless, so desperate it seemed

Oh! God! Oh! Will I die in vain ???
Oh! Lord! Why am I so afraid ???
I feel like I haven’t completed it…
Was it right to trust my faith???

A nation so hard to unite
Is so quick to put up the light
This man, some should better believe
This night, who will be choose to free???

I’ll bleed and suffer in the honor of man
Father! No! Was it really your plan???
I feel like I haven’t done nothing yet…
Have I lost my love to my hate???

Tonight, as I walk in the light
I wonder why should this man die
Now, we’ll have to forsake our dreams
And stand for what we really mean

And so, this is the end
Tonight, I am broken
I fear it is my way…
I doubt what I’ve done will stay
Anyway… Father, crucify me!!!

I walk in the light
Why should this man die???
We’ll forsake our dreams
And stand for what we mean

Oh! Poor Jerusalem
Tonight, so silent
Is it really the way???
Will something ever change???

05. The Rising of the Fall

(François Vachon)

Everyone’s gone mad
It’s time to make a change
The nation is torn and
Liberty rages
October is crying

Colorized when we fear
Broken by slavery
We’re at the gates of dawn
Victory will come

Chorus : It’s the same blood
Under the same sun
(Another time, the same light)

We must hold on
And never give up

United we will stand
And make ‘til the end

Reduced to nothing
A citizen’s the prey
With the war measures
The people are
Held hostage

Their silence is too loud
Contempt brings violence
We refuse to be doomed
Pain won’t crush the truth

Chorus : It’s the same blood
Under the same sun
(Another time, the same light)

We must hold on
And never give up

The Cherier call will stand
The symbol of our will

In the name of pride
All mercy has disappeared
(We will pay the price)

We gave our own lives
Our choice is made
October is dying
(A man is sacrificed)

We are responsible
Divided, we will fall

(The rising of this fall)
(The fall of the rising

06. The Mourning After

Instrumental


07. Along the Lonely Road

(François Vachon)

I can’t sleep at night
Can’t find peace when I close my eyes
All within my head
I’m so far away from my bed

I know what dhadows can never forget
I feel like a child that has no regret

I can make you smile
Can hold you when you need to cry
All within my heart
I’m so far away from the dark

I know what dhadows can never forget
I feel like a child that has no regret

Chorus : Along the lonely road
The child has grown old
Along the lonely road
I’m in search of my own and you are there (X2)

I will change and rebeline
Some day, Ill run out of time…
