"Sounds like its title (imagine marching hordes)." -BC, SP Nexus 2014-04-03

"With new and improved epic wizard part" -BC, 2014-04-04

"Went at one song today and one song only. And that song was TIBERIUS; which I'd long ago identified at a tough cookie to crack. Because... the dang thing is in 9/8 (at least that's what I've been told) and ain't so easy on the rhythmic eyes. But... it is awesome I must say as an epic piece and worth the trouble. So trouble is what I got in trying to untangle what was the middle 8. I say 'was' because it 'tis no more. Erased. Obliterated. My casual ode to 'Godspell' forgotten. Replaced by what for a brief moment was a sadder part, then a dirge-ing riff, then a bastardized version of one of the COUGARED. And then... some combo of said riff and a shred of the dirge." -BC, 2014-04-18

"As a holdover from last night, TIBERIUS had been the recipient of a hybrid riff that when I woke this morning didn't feel exactly right. And as those things go, subtle changes are often the difference in a riff sounding dumb or smart. Harkening back to an early form of the same idea, I took out the fluff and stuck with the repetition and lo and behold, it lined up to the previous spot without any time changes; a miracle. Add Moog." -BC, 2014-04-19

 

Lyrics

Fuss my love, don't fight
Never leave here this night
Words, pray? Dull fame
For what is love if love obeys?
Let flee doves in fliht
May we stray from our right
And ever leave here softly

I've seen the world upon a thousand dreams
Your pyres of wonder can't say what it means
And still I love you, and like everything
It goes and goes
It goes and goes
It goes

If you break, believe me
If you take, deceive me
To the sound of one clapping hand
Is your heart so lonely?
That your own is only?
As good as can be had [written: bound] on demand

Hush my love, don't fight
Never leave here this night

I've seen the world upon a thousand dreams
Your pyres of wonder can't say what it means
And still I love you, and like everything
It goes and goes
It goes and goes
It goes and goes
It goes
I've seen the world upon a thousand dreams
I've seen the world upon a thousand dreams
It goes and goes
It goes and goes
It goes and goes
It goes
