1. Photographs
Why has it all changed?
What have we lost? What have we gained?
Nothing of this will ever remain
Only a bunch of child’s memories
Why has it all changed?
What have I lost? and what have you gained?
Nothing of this will ever remain
Only a bunch of child’s memories
Hidden in shame

We used to stay together
Dreaming of what we’d have become
We’d have been friends forever
What should I say now that you’re gone?

Through my eyes you’re fading
This is the way I feel

Why has it all changed?
What have we lost? What have we gained?
Nothing of this will ever remain
Only a bunch of child’s memories
Why has it all changed?
What have I lost? and what have you gained?
Nothing of this will ever remain
Only a bunch of child’s memories

I miss those times when we played as kids
No worries about our future, no enemies
Now I close my eyes
Trying to go back then with my mind
Oh, how I wish we could live the old times again

Through my eyes you’re fading
This is the way I feel

We can’t stand here waiting
Why are we afraid if there’s nothing but time between us
We can’t stand here waiting
Nothing is changing
Will we ever meet again?

Will we ever meet again?
What are we waiting for?
What are we so afraid of?
2. Your Voice
Don't wait up for me my dear
'cause i'm not coming home tonight
I know you will have fear
But this is what you have to fight

My own solution is an evolution in my state of mind
I want to avoid this disaster
My own solution is an evolution but i am so blind
And time seems to run faster

I hate to hear your voice, when you're upset
But i know... but now i know i have no choice
So i regret, forget the time that i spent with you

Don't wait up for me my dear
'cause i'm not coming home tonight
I know you will have fear
But this is what you have to fight

If this is love, please run away from me
As i'm sick of justifying myself to you
My time isn't come 'till i say so

My own solution is an evolution in my state of mind
I want to avoid this disaster
My own solution is an evolution but i am so blind
While time runs fast and i...

Hate your voice, when you're upset
But i know... but now i know i have no choice
So i regret, forget the time we spent...

I hate to hear your voice, when you're upset
But i know... but now i know i have no choice
So i regret, forget the time we spent...
3. The Gift Of Life
Will we ever know where we came from
Or find the first signs of creation?

(Will we ever know?)

These questions hound us
Since the beginning of times
Nobody has ever been able
To give humanity an answer
And we're still waiting for one...

Life is a gift given to men by something we don't know
Don't let it drift away and pick the fruits of the seeds we sowed

Explore the universe
Breathe new dimensions
And find the answers
To those eternal questions

From the bottom of our hearts
To the tips of our tongues
We're all conscious
We are not alone

We must know who put the seeds of life on earth

And still...

These questions hound us
Since the beginning of times
Nobody has ever been able
To give humanity an answer
And we're still waiting for one...

Life is a gift given to men by something we don't know
Don't let it drift away and pick the fruits of the seeds we sowed


Will our creator ever show himself to us?
Time for humanity has come to open up our eyes
Earth has become our grave
But we won't die buried in our ignorance
Don't let evolution stop

Will we ever know where we came from
Or find the first signs of creation?
Don't let evolution stop and find salvation
4. Sandcastles
It's time to empty the bag my friend
The sandcastle has collapsed along with your lies

(you're not the same...) is this the end?
(and you've played your game) you've had your chance
The time to face reality has arrived

I always gave the best of me
But nothing ever got back to me
And all i've sacrificed and strived for
All i've hoped and cried for
Never seems to be enough...

All that i want seems to much to ask
And all i need hides behind your mask
I need something that makes me feel alive
And someone who saves my life

Don't lie to me, 'cause memories
One day will come together and you'll have the deal with them forever

It's time to empty the bag my friend
The sandcastle has collapsed along with your lies

(you're not the same...) is this the end?
(and you've played your game) you've had your chance
The time to face reality has arrived

Don't lie to me, 'cause memories
One day will come together and you'll have the deal with them forever

...it's not too late...

Take your last chance, it's not the end
5. Consumed Future
Mama says i'm not good at anything
Keep my mouth shut, say nothing
Not venting my thoughts, just sit and waste
Like a living ghost, cause i feel misplaced

I want my dream
But it feels so far away
I want to be on the cover of magazines
I want to be on mtv or have my own reality

I wish they would break down the walls to get to me
Isn't this so fucking insane?
The world behind the box is taking over my brain

Mama says i'm not good at anything
I stare at emptiness and say nothing
Don't open my mouth, just sit and waste
Like a living ghost, cause i feel misplaced

I hate seeing all this shit
But at the same time i want to be a part of it
"Suicide!" repeats itself in my mind

I wish they would break down the walls to get to me
Isn't this so fucking insane?
The world behind the box is taking over my brain
6. Our Flame
Let's leave sympathy apart for once
Just save me from it all

I hear your whispers
Such a pleasant sound
While all my wishes
Are spreading around
Please give me another chance
Take me back
I won't ruin it all again

Let's leave sympathy apart for once
Just save me from it all
For i still bear hope in my heart
And don't want to feel agony again...

Let's leave sympathy apart for once
Just save me from it all
For i still bear hope in my heart
And don't want to feel agony again

Don't forget about our flame
It is what keeps us alive
7. Late Confessions
We all know that
Time is the worst enemy of men
Runs fast and never comes back
And even though we think to be free
There is no way out
We're all prisoners of it

So one last time, stay by my side
Between the sea and the stars
Read through the scars in my mind
And you'll see the beauty of life again

Leaf through the pages of my heart
And you'll see the way i got these scars

I know it's useless to speak my mind at this point
But there must be a way, to get rid of this weight

I am just trying to understand what the past tastes like
What is right, what is wrong
What is worth and what is not

Sometimes i wish i could have had more time
To makes things clear, to explain how i felt
The time we wasted left it's mark on me
That no one will ever erase...

Leaf through the pages of my heart
And you'll see the way i got this
Leaf through the pages of my heart
And you'll see the way i got these scars

So one last time, stay by my side
Between the sea and the stars
Read through the scars in my mind
And you'll see the beauty of life again

I am just trying to understand what the past tastes like
What is right, what is wrong
What is worth and what is not

Sometimes i wish i could have had more time
To makes things clear, to explain how i felt
The time we wasted left it's mark on me
That no one will ever erase...
8. Sincere
Why can't i understand you?
The path you're on i can't get to
Why can't i feel you in my heart?
We're drifting so far apart

Don't make it up, please be sincere
'cause i just can't sleep at night, since you're not here

Sometimes i want to fucking scream
Scream 'till i have no voice
Have someone to hold me
Tell me there's another choice

Take my hand i'm here for you
Let me in, we'll make it through

Sometimes i want to fucking scream
Scream 'till i have no voice
Have someone to hold me
Tell me there's another choice
So...

Take my hand i'm here for you
Let me in, we'll make it through

Why can't i understand you?
The path you're on i can't get to
Why can't i feel you in my heart?
We're drifting so far apart

Don't make it up, please be sincere
'cause i just can't sleep at night, since you're not here

Don't make it up, just be sincere
I swear i'll do my best to get back on your path
9. Elisabeth
Was my life just a bad dream
Or did i lose my reality?
You ruined it all, now heal me
As i may still have the chance to be free

Robbed of every emotion
My life's a fucking infection
Since all i had and loved seems disappeard
Not getting back what i lost is my biggest fear

In every moment, in every instant... your violence surrounds me
In every moment, in every instant... your violence is inside of me

18 years...

It's been so long but i survived
Stuck in hole for a lifetime
I wondered if i was alive
Although it's over i still feel

In every moment, in every instant... your violence surrounds me
In every moment, in every instant... your violence is inside of me

And now i'm free in the prison of my memories
But i'll never know what i'd have become
10. Wants & Needs
What am i supposed to do?
If it was up to us we could have slept forever
In the bed of our ignorance
We're so lazy that it takes a war to wake us up


What do we really want?
Is it just money and vices?
How do we know when it's time to strive for something?
Why is what we really need just so hard to get?
And who'll decide for us if we'll not be ready yet?


We always claim to deserve something
But now it's time... it's time to realize
We can't stand on this world alone
This time i will survive
And nobody tell me how to live my life!

I've heard this story a thousand times
And it never had a happy ending
It's made of glory and crimes

We always claim to deserve something
But now it's time... it's time to realize
We can't stand on this world alone
This time i will survive
And nobody tell me how to live my life!

What we need is one of those moments that leave you breathless
I'll breathe life deep
