Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Gates to Eden (7:12)
[Verse 1:]
Outside the rain is falling
The moon stands pale and cold
Somewhere the clock strikes midnight
six ours left to go
Justice says I'm guilty but is this really true?
Governor shows no mercy now the chair waits for me

[Bridge 1:]
I got a dream a long time ago
Visions of my life
Terrible deeds I saw in that night
violence crime and lies!

[Refrain:]
There are signs in the sky
tomorrow the day I must die
Lord stand by me on my last way!
(The) circle is closed and the visions turned to truth
Now I'm on my way to the gates of Eden

[Verse 2:]
Sometimes I feel anger about my own life
I wouldn't see the danger in those days
Steps outside the celldoor coming close to me
Sunbeams of the rising dawn makes me fear!

[Bridge 2:]
I got a dream a long time ago
Visions of my life
Terrible deeds I saw in that night
violence crime and lies!

[Bridge 3:]
Cold sweat is flowing slowly down on my back
The sands of times are running there's no turning back
The priest reads the last writes guardian stands beside
My blood runs faster now it's time to die!

[Bridge 4:]
Now I'm leavin' up to another world
Maybe a better place to live maybe to sleep

[Bridge 5:]
Tears rollin' down on my cheeks as my life drifts before me
I'm afraid of the coming but no one can hear my silent cries

[Bridge 6:]
Goodbye Mama goodbye my love
Goodbye to the rest of all
The time is right for the last farewell
Stop from cryin' hide your tears
I'm not worth for all those fears
Send me a smile before I walk away

[Bridge 7:]
My heart is drummin' as they lead me to the chair
The smilin' face of death - I see everywhere
Hangman comes closer
Last cigarette I can smoke
Than he will take the switch to turn my life off

[Bridge 1:]
I got a dream a long time ago
Visions of my life
Terrible deeds I saw in that night
violence crime and lies!

[Refrain:]
There's a sign in the sky now it's the hour to die
Lord stand by me on my last way!
(The) circle is closed and the visions turned to truth
Ready to pass the gates of Eden
2. Explorers (5:15)
[Verse 1:]
Ships cross the ocean shatter the time
'cause a new thinking arise that change our minds
leave all the certain behind

[Verse 2:]
Heroes are lonely new era begins
Reality is fading away whatever they do
Whatever they gonna do!

[Refrain:]
Many times in the history of the world
special kind of men are crossin' borderlines
There are signs everywhere in the universe
and you need only one to pick them up

[Verse 3:]
Hallowed for conquest punished for crimes
Burned for the knowledge and truth
Believe and trust that's what a man keeps alive

[Verse 4:]
Questions need answers like the desert needs rain
Tomorrow's thinkin' and deeds are yesterdays dreams
Forever they gonna last

[Refrain:]
Many times in the history of the world
special kind of men are crossin' borderlines
There are signs everywhere in the universe
and you need only one to pick them up
3. Tomorrow's World (4:26)
[Verse 1:]
Black was the night the all covered sky sending rain and fire
2066 a different world as we know
Two old men lightened up by a candles flame
A glance from their eyes showing no future at all

[Bridge 1:]
They tell a story which I can't believe
Listen to them and hear

[Refrain:]
Visions of tomorrow's world
See that mankind didn't learn
What we've built in thousand years
to pieces it is blown!

[Verse 2:]
Listening to them a wounded soldier came along
Tired and hungry he is sitting down
A broken hero damned by his own rules
He's turning in circles there's no way out

[Bridge 2:]
Tears fallin' down from his eyes to the ground
as he remembered the

[Refrain:]
Visions of tomorrow's world
See that mankind didn't learn
What we've built in thousand years
to pieces it is blown!

[Bridge 3:]
Clear is the day sunshine is falling in my room
As I woke up no signs at all
Scared by a dream I know this can't go on and on
People wake up and beware

[Verse 3:]
Black was the night the all covered sky sending rain and fire
2066 a different world as we know
Two old men lightened up by a candles flame
A glance from their eyes showing no future at all

[Bridge 4:]
There's only one way that we have to go open
your eyes for the

[Refrain:]
Visions of tomorrow's world without crime and
without hurt
What we've built in thousand years
lasts eternally!
4. Dreamers Island (5:31)
Forgotten dreams lost inside
Hide your tears from others pride
Feelings so cold habits grow old
Lost my mind in emptiness
Dispersing questions not answered at all
hunted by reality

[Verse 1:]
Faced with ordinary life eye to eye with the truth
Boring jobs build a senseless world
Tell me what can I do?

[Bridge 1:]
Let these days pass by Don't believe a lie!
Escape from reality

[Refrain:]
Welcome to dreamers island
leave all your sorrows leave all your troubles behind
Travel to dreamers island start a new life!
Better time will begin

[Verse 2:]
My mind's full of Gods degrees
Will it be my destination?
Preachers word a better life will lead to dependence

[Bridge 1:]
Let these days pass by Don't believe a lie!
Escape from reality

[Refrain:]
Welcome to dreamers island
leave all your sorrows leave all your troubles behind
Travel to dreamers island start a new life!
Better time will begin

[Bridge 1:]
Let these days pass by Don't believe a lie!
Escape from reality

[Refrain:]
Welcome to dreamers island
leave all your sorrows leave all your troubles behind
Travel to dreamers island start a new life!
Better time will begin
[repeat till end]
5. Crusaders Prayer (4:28)
[Verse 1:]
So many miles we walked away
so many times we had to pray
Every night we didn't sleep
every fight we didn't win
Every night we didn't laugh
in those dreadful times

[Bridge 1:]
Far far away out to the foreign land
so many miles from home
Fight kill and die here in the desert sands
oh Lord tell me why!

[Bridge 2:]
Silver and gold that's what we want
To get back the land that was the command
Honour and fame a crusaders aim
To win or to die that's a warriors fate!

[Refrain:]
Jerusalem aim of the pilgrim
Ancient city in the hallowed land
Jerusalem orient Lady full of mystic signs

Jerusalem aim of the pilgrim
Ancient city in the hallowed land
Jerusalem show me the mercy of your guardian hand!

[Bridge 3:]
Far far away out to the foreign land
so many miles from home
Fight kill and die here in the desert sands
oh Lord tell me why!

[Bridge 4:]
Silver and gold that's what we want
To get back the land that was the command
Honour and fame a crusaders aim
To win or to die that's a warriors fate!

[Refrain:]
Jerusalem aim of the pilgrim
Ancient city in the hallowed land
Jerusalem orient Lady full of mystic signs

Jerusalem aim of the pilgrim
Ancient city in the hallowed land
Jerusalem show me the mercy of your guardian hand!
6. Dream Dealer (4:00)
To the wind I will sing the tale of the king
That reigned in peace and love
And the one of the man who crossed the path
Of the ancient forest of elves

Old lands and red dragons filled his open eyes
Kings, queens and proud warriors in his magic dreams
My
7. Cry of the Nature (3:40)
[Verse 1:]
Cracked by the storm
the waves and the sea
the ship sinks down on the ground
Filled up with oil that streams to the sea
turning the blue into black

[Bridge 1:]
When do we learn to prevent our faults?
When do we turn back to life?
This is the world where we only can live!
There will be no second chance!

[Refrain:]
The cry of the nature is seldom be heard
a slap in it's face all we gave
The air is polluted we can't breath at all
The dice will be cast here at last

[Verse 2:]
We poison our rivers we dirten the air
Nobody cares about it all
Turning our heads everyday everytime
it's only a matter of time

[Bridge 2:]
Now it is time to prevent our mistakes
Now it is time to turn back!
This world's the only place where we can live
there will be no second chance!

[Refrain:]
The cry of the nature is seldom be heard
a slap in it's face all we gave
The air is polluted we can't breath at all
The dice will be cast here at last

[Bridge 2:]
Now it is time to prevent our mistakes
Now it is time to turn back!
This world's the only place where we can live
There will be no second chance!

[Refrain:]
The cry of the nature is seldom be heard
a slap in it's face all we gave
The sense of our times are running away
Give us a chance - so just give us a chance
give us a chance to survive
8. Signs (4:20)
[Verse 1:]
Six o'clock radio tells the morning news
Same old stories same old lies again
TV preachers selling member cards
Heaven's for sale ten dollars cash

[Bridge 1:]
There's a new religion "Money" is the name for
(Their) bible called "credit card"
In this temples of gold money games are played
and anytime the rich will win

[Refrain:]
Listen to the signs of time
Don't obey those master of lies
Listen to the signs of time

[Verse 2:]
Politician leaders give us promises
Idle words later on they can't remind
Doin' sales and deals behind a mask of truth
Bending the law in their own way

[Bridge 1:]
There's a new religion "Money" is the name for
(Their) bible called "credit card"

9. Euphoria (7:25)

Take me in show me a promised land

[Bridge 1:]
And when I die has my life been glorious?

Endless nights without knowing what's coming next

A shot wakes up the early day

And I feel fear deadly fear!

World is loosing
All are confused and the children are dying everyday
For those everlasting lies

A shot wakes up the early day
There is nothing left to say

All confused in endless fear
Children dying each denyin'

News are telling no one's listening what they say

Signs of sadness never has been heard

And when I die has my life been glorious?
Death makes no sense at all

Madness has taken control

Everlasting lie!
10. Place Without Mirrors (4:39)
[Verse 1:]
The day is fadin' away and the night comes with strength
Shadows has conquered the town now it's time to begin

[Bridge 1:]
Shadows and darkness protecting me
Hidin' my face in the twilight
If there's a God where should he be?
Give me the right to see my face no more!

[Refrain:]
Where is the place without mirrors and pain?
Take me inside just leave me be
Where is the place without images?
Time cannot heal all the wounds
Time cannot help to forget

[Verse 2:]
Headaches are bursting my head
Now I can't stop to do
Mirrors cause pain every second in life when we meet

[Bridge 1:]
Shadows and darkness protecting me
Hidin' my face in the twilight
If there's a God where should he be?
Give me the right to see my face no more!

[Refrain:]
Where is the place without mirrors and pain?
Take me inside just leave me be
Where is the place without images?
Time cannot heal all the wounds
Time cannot help to forget
11. The Liaison (4:27)
[Intro:]
Sometimes at night I look up to the sky
a million stars fills the dark
Sometimes at night I look into the sky
I wish I'd be there!

[Verse 1:]
Sometimes at night when I'm closin' my eyes
some strange event passes by
Lightning's are crossing the sky
Is this a dream or reality?

[Verse 2:]
When do we learn to forgive our faults?
When do we start to live again?
Open your eyes and you will see
that we can't turn our heads all the time!

[Refrain:]
Lights in the night are gonna fade away
Mankind sleep alone
Nobody has ever seen this before
We rise in the same time we fall

[Verse 3:]
Yesterdays people meet tomorrow's dreams
downtown when they are on "speed"
Future is risin' over the hills
We're not alone in this universe!

[Refrain:]
Lights in the night are gonna fade away
Mankind sleep alone
Nobody has ever seen this before
We rise in the same time we fall
12. Stolen Memories (5:31)
I wake up soon before the dawn brakes
What's this place where am I?
I squat alone in the corner of any room
A fear to run a fear to hide

Sweat ice-cold it runs down on my neck
The door is locked barricades beside
Oh god is this my own house?
Who has this done perhaps I myself?

[Bridge:]
Pieces of a dream come back to me
A dream so wonderful a dream so frightening
Faces in my memories are passin' by
Don't know who don't know where there are

Dirty faces in the mirror deadly lookin' down on me
Empty rooms with white dressed people in a dessert far away
Many needles in my arms headphones talkin' low to me
And a wall of foreign memories hides a secret endlessly

Faces in my mind are gettin' clearer
Some are friends some are really bad
We all share anything mysterious
A secret that's stolen from my mind

[Bridge:]
Pieces of a dream come back to me
A dream so wonderful a dream so frightening
Faces in my memories are passin by
Don't know who don't know where they are

[Refrain:]
Feel it coming step away from me
Stolen memories won't come back to me
13. Faded Photographs (4:21)
Movin' slow blood runs cold promises ever behold
Targets there at last view
Start up the engine and be a hero today

Holy mission trapped in tradition a place in paradise
Honor of the family the final step into eternity

[Bridge:]
Time goes on for you and me
Vision or reality
Part of history no one know
Usual live goes on

[Refrain:]
Faded photographs
Remains at all
Faded photographs

Mother cries lying pictures
Happiness calls from other times
Suicide is it right
Martyr dies in the name of God

[Bridge:]
Time goes on for you and me
Vision or reality
Part of history
Usual live goes on

[Refrain:]
Faded photographs
Remains at all
Faded photographs
14. Into the Light (5:41)
Sometimes when I close my eyes I see faded days
A young man full of hopes and dreams a better life to live

[Bridge:]
Time for me to go has come
I'm standing at the point of no return
There's no way out
I'm lost with every step I do

Then I got in touch with friends I never better known
Loosin' job and security a straight way into crime

[Bridge:]
Time for me to go has come
I'm standing at the point of no return
There's no way out
I'm lost with every step I do

[Refrain:]
Into the light never come back
Revelations coming
Into the light one way ahead
Into the light

Now it seems to late for me a never needed junkies life
There's only one thing left to say
don't trust drugs and there false shine

[Bridge:]
Time for me to go has come
I'm standing at the point of no return
There's no way out
I'm lost with every step I do

[Refrain:]
Into the light never come back
Revelations coming
Into the light one way ahead
Into the light
