1. Yesterday's News (3:32)
[Keränen / Ristolainen]

What is the matter with you?
What the hell you think you do?
Everyone can see you trough

You act like a holy savior
Somehow some damn superior
Oh! What a strange behavior

How does it feel to be so damn, self-satisfied?
What does it take to get your feet on the ground?

You're so lame with your fame
No one can ever take you for real
You and your friends ain't more than yesterday's news

The smell of green will always turn your nose
And that ain't right to those who have put their faith in you
You're yesterday's news

On the way to stardom, fortune and fame
Breaking promise is this the name of the game
Like a spineless, crave fool
No one's gonna trust in you

You're so lame with your fame
No one can ever take you for real
You and your friends ain't more than yesterday's news

The smell of green will always turn your nose
And that ain't right to those who have put their faith in you

You're so lame with your fame
No one can ever take you for real
You and your friends ain't more than yesterday's news

The smell of green will always turn your nose
And that ain't right to those who have put their faith in you
You're yesterday's news
2. Eyes Of The Clown (4:43)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

Now take the stage
Take your positions
Then swallow your fears
You can't turn back now

Spreading your soul
Selling yourself
In each an every town
The crowd meets their clowns

[Pre-Chorus:]
Excited, ecstatic
You're facing your true self on this stage
And in the crowd - there is no difference there inside
'Cos we all hide our clown's face down within
And we all are more than what we say

[Chorus:]
And they stare right into the eyes of the clown
The play goes on and on and truth may be found
Ascending high above the crowd
Yet tears are falling down
From the eyes of the clown...

Lights flashing bright
And the show is on
Like no end in sight
The beast takes his bite

Surrender to him
And let yourself go
But be prepared to die
Still one more time
3. Payback (4:44)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

Without a hint, out of the blue
My entire world fell apart
In their lust for power
My foes they went too far

They sent a man into my home
An assassin second to none
I only caught a glint of chrome
And saw his work was done

Tormented you will be
Revenge I will feed
No matter how you plead
Tonight you shall bleed

He got away and left the town
But he left me a trail
Enough for me to hunt him down
And I will make him pay

Tormented you will be
Revenge I will feed
No matter how you plead
Tonight you shall bleed
You stole all I had and you vanished in the night
The circle's complete now and I take your life

Like a clean, shiny on
On your uncharted skin
It's creamy cover, the raspberry spill
This steely lover is ready to kill

Tormented you will be
Revenge I will feed
No matter how you plead
Tonight you shall bleed
4. Failed States (3:49)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

Take a look at the powers that be
Still believing they're making history
Cruising on that diesel course
Forcing life into a long-dead horse

Every time one well is emptied
Another foreign strike is pre-empted
We're living on old fossil lives
And lead by men cheating for their prize...

Wars, shame and self-abuse
Failed states are on the news
All nations have to choose
Survival or the noose
We got the world to lose

Old men draining the land
Their souls turning to holes

Penniless men were given their pens
And the hanged-man rules
With his split-brain views
Blinded like mice we try to throw the dice
With our hands tied up
The money train don't stop
5. Take What The Heavens Create (2:53)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

Step aside, let us rise
Without fear into the storm
You've been out of place in time,
Since the day when you were born

You are forced into the wheel
The soundless wheel you cannot see
Let me be the one to
Guide you far from that life

Too long you have been living in sin
Wasting what you have and what you could
Now the storm's coming, well!
Let's go face the rain!

Just let them know

I'm going to be here
I got answers and nothing to fear
I can take what the heavens create
I got my own believes, I don't need yours
I'm going to stay the course

Let's sway and pray
In the name of the storm
It's all the same, part of the game
Where you and I are pawns

Suddenly the clouds appear
The colors shades are green
What's a lightning like this time
When everything's surreal?

Just let them know

I'm going to be here
I got answers and nothing to fear
I can take what the heavens create
I got my own believes, I don't need yours

Just let them know

I'm going to be here
I got answers and nothing to fear
I can take what the heavens create
I got my own believes, I don't need yours
I'm going to stay the course
6. Great Shadow (5:15)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

Like the blind who envy those who see
Little children rebel against the creed
They believe there is nothing left to tell
But the truth is stronger than their shells

What the poets said is left unsaid
And lady beauty weeps on her death-bed
She was pierced by your trends and deception
Hugs Suffocated by your sterile preconception

It's hard to find, even to forget
This great new veil lies overhead
It hovers like a sickening plague, like a plague

A Great Shadow
Deafening, sickening
Waiting for the reckoning
Beckoning, bickering
Searching for the Light
A Great Shadow
Deafening, sickening
Waiting for the reckoning
In their minds, searching for the Light [x2]

Pleas a true emotion, meat deaf ears
Only crocodiles are shedding tears
And the masses reaching for their grave
Are too numb to even feel the shame

Whenever prophets raise their voices
Middle legions say they're being exploited
They prefer fake liberty without goals
In a constant puberty, under control

It's hard to find, even to forget
This great new veil lies overhead
It hovers like a sickening plague, like a plague

A Great Shadow
Deafening, sickening
Waiting for the reckoning
Beckoning, bickering
Searching for the Light
A Great Shadow
Deafening, sickening
Waiting for the reckoning
In their minds, searching for the Light [x2]
7. No Angels No More (3:49)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

You passed trough this life
Born into mankind,
Mortal sins awaited you

I walked in the light
Never wanting to stray
Still your shade took over me

Now moving on
Departing so soon, so soon, so soon
Oh, I'd like to stay with you
But there are no angels no more
No angels no more

Darkness was the seed
And truly part of me
All sweet things must have an end

Yet again this pain is real
I know it will disappear
The shade is covering me soon

We won't see again
In certainty there's peace
And what we had here will remain

So beautiful and pure
Departing so soon, so soon, so soon
Oh, I'd like to stay with you
But there are no angels no more
The heavens are gone and so is our hell

Departing so soon, so soon, so soon
Oh, I'd like to stay with you
But there are no angels no more
The heavens are gone and so is our hell
8. Faceless Men (4:16)
[Keränen / Visto]

Our world is slowly dying in agony and pain
At first we were so innocent
And then became so vain
Double-dealing lawyers
Ruthless people everywhere
'Cause we didn't ever learn
To give away and share

Faceless men in towers made of ivory and steel
Selling guns and praying for peace
They can make you suffer
Make your life so unreal
There's no cure, there's only disease
(We will lost it all)
Fortune and for fame!

Time has come
Big wheels keep on turning
Time has come
Half the World is burning
Time has come
There is no escape, no way out
Time has come

Ministers are preaching
They all know the end is near
The Armageddon's closer
Soon the reckoning is here
Money is still talking
Spreading violence and lies
All mankind in it's misery
Will pay the final price

Faceless men in towers made of ivory and steel
Selling guns and praying for peace
They can make you suffer
Make your life so unreal
There's no cure, there's only disease
(We will lost it all)
Fortune and for fame!

Time has come
Big wheels keep on turning
Time has come
Half the World is burning
Time has come
There is no escape, no way out
Time has come
9. Firebird (3:47)
[Keränen / Ristolainen / Seppänen]

Ruthless pain is killing me
I cannot see the sun
We fought the mighty adversary
Still we haven't won

Waiting for my destiny
Grim reaper calls on me
Brace myself for eternity
Yet red and gold I see

I can hear the massive wings
And soothing tears I feel
Life begins to fill my veins
My wounds they start to heal

A faint scent of cinnamon
Reaches me trough air
I can see my savior
Flame up as a flare

Spread your wings
And shed your healing tears
Let the fire purify
In full blaze
You will meet the end
And then you shall transcend

A tantric resurrection
The city of the sun
A beautiful reflection
Of life spent on the run

In the atom's heart
Splitting souls inside
Vivid colors burn my eyes
On this wild bird I ride

Slowly gaining power
Patience is the key
What you need is a flame
That can burn you again
And the feeling of ecstasy

Wings like a bolt of lightning
Soaring to the sky
Only then, in the end
When you can see again
All the earth is beneath you and bright
10. The Vigilante (4:46)
[Keränen / Seppänen]

Cheated and down, there was not a sound
When my father was silenced in shame
Old and frail, just a forgotten tale
So they thought, but I'll prove them wrong

Learning from the best
Training hard, I passed their test
Heading home, I don't have time for rest

I am searching all around
Like a hunter, like a hound
And I focus on this task
They will meet their fate at last
I am searching everywhere
When I see them hiding scared
They will face my deadly stare

I choose to fight
For my pride and birthright
There are no other choices for me

Once I am done,
My life purpose is gone
My story has and uneventful end

Here I stand and their blood stains my hand
Yet somehow I feel so relieved
I understand I must soon kill again
There's meaning in just being mean

Learning from the best
Training hard, I passed their test
Heading home, I don't have time for rest

I am searching all around
Like a hunter, like a hound
And I focus on this task
You will meet your fate at last
I am searching everywhere
When I see you hiding scared
You will face my deadly stare

I choose to fight
For my pride and birthright
There are no other choices to me

I can no stop
Oh I love to fight too much
My victims are my purpose of life

And when at the end of my life
I see what I've done
I cannot help but feel
That once again all the pain
For our children will run trough
In the evil that men do
