The track listing on the back cover of the CD is incorrect. "Rhydin" is track 6, while "Parting Visions" and "Once a Dream" are shifted down once each. The track listing shown here is the correct version, which is listed in the liner notes.

All songs written by Thomas Youngblood and Daniel Elliot, except where noted.

  1. "Providence" – 5:35
  2. "Millennium" – 5:15
  3. "King's Eyes" – 6:14

Japanese version bonus track

The Japanese bonus track was later included on 2007 compilation "Myths & Legends Of Kamelot".

The title of track 6 is a reference to the fantasy role-playing world, RhyDin.
