1. Wings Of Reality (5:55)
Day by day
Wheels keep turning round
And everynight
Many restless creatures longing for the dawn
To heal away
Their eternal pain...

Hope the saints arrive
Bringing the signs
Of treasures to be found
Now we walk alone
And we've got to know
The secrets all around

Breaking our hearts of stone,
Tasting our lives,
Setting us free to decide...

"Wings Of Reality,
Take me higher and higher
Show me the way to be
Free forever with you...
I guess I've found my way
Everyday growing stronger
So many words to say,
So many things to do..."

The ghosts get closer to many fears
A beast has awakened here inside...
All we don't know, nobody knows!

...And the pay back is coming someday!!
2. Petrified Eyes (6:05)
We're armed and ready to attack
To strike the city of all desires
Then calm the waves that lead to passion
When all reality turns back to ashes

Over the hills, across the sea
Into the abyss of a bygone time
Lest we forget what really matters
And the bewildered look up to the sky
Fallen comrades lay on the ground
Victors in death they make no sound

Petrify my eyes
Behold the sights of battle lost
In this unchanging world
What does the poor life of a warrior cost?

Oh can't you see
Many faces from God's own races are waiting
To fight the good fight
Even thought the animals of time have passed you by you still don't see
Oh, you won't see
They've petrified your eyes

Deep desires of mine
Dark thoughts tirannize my mind
When will this torture end
Into the mire, to battle again
3. Lisbon (5:13)
Everynight I say a prayer
Look at me: nobody cares
Just a mirror, passing by...
Looked inside:
I've lost my pride...!

Stay with me not for so long
It's alright: no needs, no hope
Such a miracle, looking back...
Time gone by, and life wasn't bad...!

Lord, light my way
Fill these withered, careless hands...

Oh, skies are falling down
Skies are falling down
Oh, skies are falling down
Skies are falling down

See, the birds are back...
At the docks and everywhere
Here in Lisbon, realized
This whole world so strange and divine

Lord, light my way
Fill these withered, careless hands...

Oh, skies are falling down
Skies are falling down
Oh, skies are falling down
Skies are falling down
4. Metal Icarus (6:24)
You live in a world that is just
Way too strange to conceive
Angel's dressed in black
Most of the people who seem to be
Lost in the dark
- Are they all too real?

Always a good time, never lonely
Suddenly realized the blood red tears from my eyes
There was nothing much
I could do
But watch you die

Time after time
Burnt your wings on the sun
Metal Icarus

First time I met you I wanted
To be by your side
And let my hair grow long
Those days are gone
But I still fly by night
Bringing life to the dead

Even through times when I felt lonely
Suddenly realized the blood red tears from my eyes
There was nothing much I could do
But watch you die

Time after time
Burnt your wings on the sun
Metal Icarus
Night after night
Upon forces unknown
Metal Icarus

Ah! Those were the years
I can still feel the windy heights
Against my skin
And if I close my eyes
I'm flying over hills!
5. Paradise (7:38)
Since the time of the ancients
When gladiators fought
Turning movements of action to passion
Their life was a game

See the blood of the bodies
Spilling onto the floor?
How could people applaud it
It's madness it's all so insane!

Blood, through your heart
Never stops for one minute
And there you will find:
- There is no other way!

The arena's still crowded
But the rules take new forms
Some of them tread on stages,
Some others chase after a ball...

Blood, through your heart
Never stops for one minute
And there you will find:
- There is no way out!

Demons with a thousand eyes:
- Look at me and cast your spell!...
We're dreaming of Paradise
While we stay here in hell!!!
6. Mystery Machine (4:12)
The sun rises over the tide
Waves breaking over the rocks
Again and again like an echo
From the mountine tops

This feeling you just can't hide
Like an open page revealed for all to see
You breathe hard,
Like the sea breeze coming in
Hold your arms to the sky

Don't let clouds hide the sun
Don't runaway cos' you can't hide from thunder
Cold sweat glistening on your brow
The rains will come crashing down

A million voices sing out loud again tonight
As the mysteries of life begin to unfold
Master of fate you're the only one who knows
Machine of mystery roles on
7. Fireworks (6:21)
It's New Year Day;
Looking up to the sky
We all await for the fireworks to fly
And I hold you
And I stand by you now...

Over the bay darkness breaks to a glow
But still the sands keep on running too slow
And I love you
And I care for you now...

Green comes after white
Night turns to day into the fire
Look at our dreams flying away
Climbing up higher

Along the shore timeless faces reflect
The innocence of childhood never left
And I miss you
And I cry for you now

Green comes after white
Night turns to day into the fire
Look at our dreams flying away
Climbing up higher

And the ones who we trust
And the moments of joy
Mirrored there is a glow
That will dazzle our eyes

Here is my heart, in my soul
Sharing the miracle of Hope
In my heart, in my mind, in my soul...
Stay hand in hand, stay with me
Love is the keys to believe
In our hearts, in our minds, in our souls!

...But now no matter what I say,
Just look at the fireworks!
8. Extreme Dream (4:17)
Living a dream just for one night
Feels like the last day of my life
Roaming somewhere just for a while
When all the feelings lay dorment inside
Here we go, marching on...

Unconsciously far from this world
We're knowing foundations of all
in such extreme virtuality
All we don't need is the proof to believe

Here we go, marching ahead
Buried deep in the sand...

I recognize this place,
All those faces, all these scenes
Though I'm so often there
It's somewhere I've never been
(Over and over again)

...It's so extreme
My endless dream...!
9. Gentle Change (5:36)
I see the stars in your eyes
Portraying my face in the future
Nice is the weather outside
But I'll stay at home
Oh! Waiting for the rain...

Memories of when we were young
Wishing so bad to be older
Now you may look to the past
The only way forward

...Lighting up another cigarette
Playing cool while cracking up inside
Saying hi to people's like saying goodbye
Laughing, but wishing to cry

Gentle change of tides
Upcoming days
Oh, the spirits of a new horizon fall
Into old dreams

Standing here howling at the storm
Shouting how life could be perfect
Well, then the walls have to fall
To start it again

Gentle change of tides
Upcoming days
Oh, the spirits of a new horizon fall
Into old dreams

Far away from sights
Oh, hidden in the maze
Oh, oh, spirits of a new horizon fall
Into old dreams
10. Speed (5:57)
Speed, run the thoughts inside your brain
Try to catch them once
And you'll be alone
There's nowhere to go

Speed, all the memories will come
Try to make them live
And you'll get so lost
From the present to the past

With speed we go
But still don't know
What's hidden in there
Out time is over!

Speed, like a thunderbolt
The future will take its place
Then could you stop time
Perhaps when you die?

With speed we go
But still don't know
What's hidden in there
Out time is over!

Faster than light we will find
A way out of the conscience
And the more we know, more we'll mind
It's matter of patience,
Always...
11. Rainy Nights (5:02)
Rainy nights can easily go
The morning sun, a lover so
A cup of tea still held tight in her hand
And tomorrow'll be just like yesterday

Taken by promises
She's just begun to feel the heat
From the fire, and so

Crazy thoughts out of control
Somewhere else away from home
An angels's kiss, the fresh breeze on her face
Closed her eyes and walked into the haze
- And fade away
aken by promises
She's just begun to feel the heat
From the fire
Burning herself and her soul

- Fade away, fade away
Scenes from yesterday, seem so far away
'Till the day they'll return again

Taken by promises
She's just begun to feel the heat
From the fire
Burning herself and her soul
So understand, my friend
Sometimes there's rain,
Sometimes there's breeze
Fanning the fire, and so

...Burns herself back to dust
Brings the hope and the love
Sews the ends of rope
Gets us further somehow

Away from home and from all
Thoughts dancing out of control
Turning the stones into gold
Leading to planets unknown
Blowing the fire and so

I promise I won't let you go
