ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With 4 world-wide releases under their belt - which include a successful self-produced mini-CD released internationally ("Guardians of Metal", 2000), a highly acclaimed album ("Ashes of Eden", Limb Music, 2003) released under a major record label to their credit, the 3rd LP "Spellcaster" (Independent, 2009), and now a new 4th release, "Kukulcan," Total Eclipse are recognized as being one of the top bands principally responsible for reviving the dormant metal scene of the late 90s in the San Francisco Bay Area and leading a new wave of metal across California and the world.

"ASHES OF EDEN" ALBUM LYRICS:

STORM WARNING
(Music & Lyrics : Erik Cameron)

In the Valley of the Wind
The lonely dead will rise again
A child's soul risen to the storm
And in the clouds she was reborn

The voices of their dead are carried
On the wind that blows
And now they've returned for your soul

Storm Warning
Storm Warning

A spirit much too young to leave
Now rides the storm forever free
By your window whispered pleas
Come leave the flesh and run with me

Open the door and she'll take you away
And with her forever you'll stay

Storm Warning
Storm Warning

Run with the thunder
And sail past the stars
With your own wings it's never too far

Storm Warning
Storm Warning

CRYSTAL SKY
(Music: E. and Chris Cameron, Lyrics: Andy Dracons Giardina)

Our green Mother embraced by the sky
In eternal foresight of what the future holds
He is the Adversary to be overcome by the Ace
The secret is to make the two into one

On the blue horizon a new star is born
Above the skies of this battlezone
Kali Yuga approaching the end
The end is approaching and it's coming to stay

I see the Angel of fire
Riding up the spiral
Into the eye of the moon
Towards the Crystal Sky
And the world keeps on burning away

To pierce through the veil that separates the worlds
With the blade of transparency, the Third Eye is opening
I see the Unifying One, of the four heads and scarlet wings
Great Angel of Judgment and Binder of Dragons

On the blue horizon a new star is born
Above the skies of this battlezone
Son of man I ask of you powerful visions
To see us across this abyss of lies

See all the Angels of fire
Riding up the spiral
Watching the world fade away
Into the Crystal Sky
Moving into a new dimension

I see the Angel of fire
Riding up the spiral
Into the eye of the moon
Towards the Crystal Sky
And the world keeps on burning away

See all the Angels of fire
Riding up the spiral
Watching the world fade away
Into the Crystal Sky
Moving into a new dimension

FROZEN IN TIME
(Music: E. and C. Cameron, Lyrics: A. Dracons Giardina)

Red Dragon rising stands guard at the gates
Enthroned in a palace of crystals
The lies that are buried where the road never ends
At the beginning of time
He who is to come again is the Keeper of the Way
Eyes of the Sphynx are the wings of tomorrow

Ride the wings of the future
Ride the wings of tomorrow

Keep your heads low in case the sky should fall on our heads
Tower of death hovers ahead, over yonder

Who will be the one to avenge the name
When we have to descend into Hades
Death in Hell is resurrection unto life
And frozen in time we are waiting

Doors of time are opening in the gloom of the day
Chained to the aeons the Angel is trying to break free
And what were you doing with the Guardian of the Grail?
Riding the waves of time?

Ride the wings of the future
Ride the wings of tomorrow

Keep your heads low in case the sky should fall on our heads
Tower of death hovers ahead, over yonder

Who will be the one to avenge the name
We will have to descend into Hades
Death in Hell is resurrection unto life
And frozen in time we are waiting

Let me be the One to avenge the name
When we have to descend into Hades
Death in Hell for resurrection unto life
And frozen in time we are waiting

TEARS OF THE WORLD (Lacrimae Mundi)
(Music: E. Cameron, Lyrics: A. Dracons Giardina)

There is a light at the end of the tunnel
It's just a dragon that is waiting to strike
No pleas for mercy to be heard today
Angel of the Dark is watching every move we make

There are those who will let you in
Bury the word and the hour until you've seen
Awaiting the seventh glow in the 13th hour
Man still walks in fear down this street of broken dreams

Tears of woe are falling down
The tears of the world
Solitude is just a song and you are never really alone
The sadness of the world
Is screaming out my name
Tearing through the open wounds and the eyes of the unborn

Tears of woe are falling down
The tears of the world
Solitude is just a tune and you are never really alone
The sadness of the world
Is screaming out my name
Tearing through the open wounds and the eyes of the unborn

Angel of Darkness
Contemplates the night
Set to destroy
The bringers of light

Lacrimae Mundi
Falling like rain

HEAVEN ON THEIR MINDS
(Music & Lyrics: Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice, from the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar")

IN REMEMBRANCE (9/11/01)
(Music: E. Cameron, Lyrics: A. Dracons Giardina)

Even a King is not indestructible after all
Always paid heed to the warnings
But one dark night
The philosopher magician yielded
To the red eye of the dragon
Watch his spirit rise with the whirlwind

Wisdom rides on brave wings of remembrance
And we are all sworn to the quest

White halls of splendor and statues of gold
Fading away into haze

The philosopher magician yielded
To the red eye of the dragon
And these castles can't endure the shock
Ancient statues gazing out toward distant horizons
The spirit always strives to reach higher

Wisdom rides on brave wings of remembrance
And we are all sworn to the quest

White halls of splendor and statues of gold
Memories starting to fade
Away

We are calling you back through the veils of the Ages
To be by our side once again

Justice rides on cold winds of rebellion
And we are all born in the whirlwind

Why won't you join us to seek what was lost
I tell you the end is not far
For some it's the sweet taste of vengeance on the rocks that kills
For others the desire to do it again
And again
AGAIN

THE GATEKEEPER
(Music: E. & C. Cameron, Lyrics: A. Dracons Giardina)

For the keepers of time now the well has run dry
and the hour glass shattered to pieces
In the void are the faceless expressions of fear
That will chase you into your next lifetime

Some will say
That there is no time
To keep the ball rolling
But even when you've lost the game
You can still pick yourself up for another round

Opener of the gates
Is standing alone
Watching in the Shadows
In the hour of darkness where evil awaits
The guardian of the threshold sent to keep the course
Avatar of the piscean age moving into Aquarius

The Way of the Father traversed by the Spirit
The secret well hidden in just retribution

Some will say
That there is no time
To keep the ball rolling
But even when you've lost the game
You can still pick yourself up for another round

The Opener of the gates
Is standing alone
Watching in the Shadows
As the hour of darkness approaches the end
The guardian of the threshold sent to keep the course
The opening of the way for these burning souls

Some will say
That there is no time
To keep the ball rolling
But even when you've lost the game
You can still pick yourself up for another round

Opener of the gates
Is standing alone
He's watching in the Shadows
In the hour of darkness where evil awaits
The guardian of the threshold sent to keep the course
Avatar of the piscean age has entered Aquarius

SHADOW OF THE SUN
(Music: E. Cameron, Lyrics: A. Dracons Giardina)

Burning bright upon my eyes
The vision in black
Came here to show me the way to the past

In doubt I cleanse my mind
Anyway I can
I don't believe in the words of the serpents
Keep away from me, I have found my peace
In the shadow of the sun where the birds will sing

Ruby star breaks out the dawn
As the shadows fall
Some distant planet where life still grows

In the darkness I close my eyes waiting for the sun
Red Giant lives on giving life to ALL
So keep away from me cause I have found my peace
In the shadow of the sun where the children never sleep

Dreams of hope crumble into dust
As you walk tomorrow's footsteps
But you can't let it drag you down
You' re always waiting for someone to give you a chance

And some are needed to spur man on
To be redeemed at the end of the road

No more doubts I've freed my mind
From your wall of lies
Never took for granted a word you said
So keep away from me and the place I live
It's the shadow of the sun where the birds always sing

Don't waste your time with the lies that you tell yourself
You'll never return to your land of dreams
And you can't let it drag you down
You're always waiting for someone to give you a chance

WINDS OF WAR
(Music: E. Cameron, Lyrics: A. Dracons Giardina)

Consecrated to the sun and rising with the wind
Conquering the tide of fear we were born to be alive
On the way back to the center we'll stop for nobody
If you want to live forever better find something to do

You can tell me that there's nothing left
In this world to make your own
And the winds keep blowing, the winds of war
So tell me where are we to go?

Those who remember the oath
Are waiting for the tide to turn
And he who knows the secrets of the void
Will be the one to laugh in the face of death

But you can't tell me
That there's nothing wrong
to call this world your own
While the winds keep blowing, the winds of war
Where do you want us to go?

And you can tell me
That there's nothing left
To call this world your own
Still the winds keep blowing, the winds of war
Now reap all the seeds that you've sown
But you can't tell me that there's nothing going on
In this world to make your own
While the winds keep blowing, the winds of war
When will you leave us alone ?????
