1. Robin Hood (8:26)
ROBIN HOOD

Ride across the endless woods
Shadows guide our way
Whispers from the fallen leafs
We've sworn to spare no pains

Moonlight falling through the boughs
When horses crump afraid
The tassel sounds revealing
As we shiver and we shake

Make no sound and rowel
Run for Your lives
Run from the cries
Out of the dark of the damned lands

Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you
And he's not in a joking mood,no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again

Courting maids in hundreds
They say there's merry men and wine
You dream of what he does all day
What a folly life

He never shaves to show his face
Legend has that all he does all day
is shooting, ducking and running from the law

Liberty, equality and a little love
Women, wine and song for every outlaw

Throw in some jealousy
And a pinch of need for fame
He king for every one
Who wants to be the same

Make no sound and rowel
Run for Your lives
Run from the cries
Fly from the sun of an arrow

Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you
And he's not in a joking mood,no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again

Robin Hood:
King of thieves
Hero of outlaws
Son of a father
Bewareth, he may be after you
Bewareth! Hahaha...

The legend is a mile down the road
To blind the honest man
While the truth hasn't even the boots,
it's boots on yet

Take what you desire
Make no mistake
Fire and duck! Fire and duck!
Let nemesis prevail

Solo

Stab in the back
Stab in the back
You will never see his face
Fire and duck!
One more stab in the back
What a day to kill disgrace

The legend is a mile down the road
To blind the honest man
While the truth hasn't even the boots,
it's boots on yet

Make no sound and rowel,hahaha
Run for Your lives
Run from the cries
Fly from the sun of an arrow

Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you
And he's not in a joking mood,no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again

Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you
And he's not in a joking mood,no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again
2. Nobody's Hero (4:33)
NOBODY'S HERO

Alright!

When they'd found him without name
He was cries resounding from the waste
He'd been thrown away

He'd never speak but he could see
Eyes of a child and certified insane
Sent down a tearful lane

COming out of nowhere
No past and no way to go
His final drops of pride make the show go on

Running from the sun: Nobody's Hero
Figures down the drain to hunker down in shadows
Running from the sun: Nobody'S Hero
Down the boulevard of unborn dreams

A little odd but then okay
On ruly tracks until she went astray
Got lost along the way

All the knew: You gotta run
They found the treadmill but she was gone
Her smile to chase

Fly into the darkness
No past, no future to come
Final drops of pride make the show go on

Running from the sun: Nobody's Hero
Figures down the drain to hunker down in shadows
Running from the sun: Nobody'S Hero
Down the boulevard of unborn dreams

Solo

Nobody's Hero
Figures down the drain to hunker down in shadows
Running from the sun: Nobody'S Hero
Down the boulevard of unborn dreams
3. Rock Of Cashel (6:20)
ROCK OF CASHEL

Crossing these endless graze lands
The rain wants to cloud remains of longing
Or am I done becoming

You say That life will go on
Then you confine your heart to beating
While you keep on cheating

The road you left behind
A thousand partings of the way
They've tried to cloud your mind
The pilgrim shall betray his cause

High rise up the sky from the emerald
Rock of shelter
High rise kissed by the breeze of creation
Rock of Cashel

You leave that horizon behind
Lime stone and green: your finest hour
Magic will devour the cross you carry

Scales falling from your eyes - yeah
The mysteries of yesterday unfolding
The grace that you're beholding

The skyline you have chased
Time and again you fought the clouds
Been spinning but the
Wheel of Dharma wouldn't let you out


High rise up the sky from the emerald
Rock of shelter
High rise kissed by the breeze of creation
Rock of Cashel

Solo

High rise up the sky from the emerald
Rock of shelter
High rise kissed by the breeze of creation
Rock of Cashel
4. Pandora's Box (6:47)
Pandora's Box


God, oh please bear with me, as you're looking from above
Elementary question: what do you take as love?

Badlands all around me, I got animal inside
God oh please forgive me for my sins
And for I enjoy this ride

Woe to you o earth and flood
For the devil sends the beast
Tell your dreamin son about the rain to come
Make him rescue us by sea

Creeping, crawling on all fours
It's down to push and shove
The juggernaut is full, let's close the doors

And the ride is on
Wastelands are waiting to be found another day
Ride across the ocean, fly by the stars
Pandora's Box is under weigh

Turmoil on the pleasure boat, the pigeon can't be seen
Look! The serpent's shape bespeaks: the problem lies within

On this sea of sadness, unknown destination sought
But we cross your shady ocean on our Yacht

And the ride is on
Wastelands are waiting to be found another day
Ride across the ocean, we fly by the stars
Pandora's Box is under weigh

And the ride is on
Ladies are waiting to be found another day
Ride across the ocean, we fly by the stars
Pandora's Box - I'll come inside

When you raised your voice to decide who's in and out
Do you know what you've done and what you let inside
That along the lamb you took the lion too

Now you're looking down at me
In your image I've been created
And along with the right you see
You gotta deal with the left of me now

From my mind to my heart and to my feet
From my head to my toes and- owing to you - in between
To the holy land? You gotta be dreaming
Territorial mission: we're led by the semen! Gagagago!

Solo

And the ride is on
Wastelands are waiting to be found another day
Ride across the ocean, fly by the stars
Pandora's Box is under weigh
And the ride is on
Ladies are waiting to be found another day
Ride across the ocean, we fly by the stars
Pandora's Box - I'll come inside

And the ride is on...
5. Breathe (5:05)
Breathe

Tide me over
Tide me over only one more night
To a world of make-believe
It's the diamonds and not the dusty rainbow

That we ride across the wreckage of a dream

A**logies in time,
You are chasing on your stony way
Run from decay, while the bends seem recondite
There'll be myriads of tomorrows to make yesterdays

You've gotta burn another day
Kick the diamonds down the road
It's only one more night away

And then another day to kill
But no time left to spill, no

I'd die for a breaking wheel
I'd die for a break to feel
I better stay in the realm of shades
Falling, falling
God gimme a broken wheel
God gimme some air to breathe
I need just one break to breathe
Only just one break to breathe

The fast lane advertised
We cry up the love that falls by the wayside
And glorify the stride
We idolize the comforts of life: Sign of the times

You gotta die another day
Kick the diamonds down the road
It's only one more night away

And then another day to kill
But no time left to spill, no...

I'die for a breaking wheel
I'd die for a break to feel
I better stay in the realm of shades
Falling, falling
God gimme a broken wheel
God gimme some air to breathe
I need just one break to breathe

Solo

And as we're gazing at the stars
One the balcony
We wonder where they lost the way

Another mood another wine
A final felony
Watch the world in disarray

Crash team racing

No time to turn apologize
For I need a second to breathe

I'd die for a breaking wheel
I'd die for a break to feel
I better stay in the realm of shades
Falling, falling
God gimme a broken wheel
God gimme some air to breathe
I need just one break to breathe

I'd die for a breaking wheel
I'd die for a break to feel
I better stay in the realm of shades
Falling, falling
God gimme a broken wheel
God gimme some air to breathe
I need just one break to breathe
Only just one break to breathe
6. Two Out Of Seven (4:29)
Two out of seven

Loads of times on the losing end
It's the same old situation
Just another constellation
Daggers drawn with a steady head
You push the aggravation
To your final destination

Cut me out in card board
Use me as a dartboard
Down at your feet now
How does it feel now

As you get yourself some
Self-esteem and then some
Heed of your own

In your eyes - in your mind
I'm two out of seven
In your eyes - in your life
Just two out of seven

As you watch my world from the outside
You think that your are strong
And you dream that you belong
You're supreme cause
You know how to spell right
You drown in salivation
You set off from frustration

Living on a card board
Use me as a dartboard
I know that lately
Your phrasing's been stately

As you get yourself some
Self-esteem and then some
Heed of your own

In your eyes - in your mind
I'm two out of seven
In your eyes - in your life
Maybe two out of seven
In your eyes - in your mind
I'm three out of ten
Out of nine I'm just fine
I'm only whatever

Solo

In your eyes - in your mind
I'm two out of seven
In your eyes - in your life
I'm two out of seven
What the fuck? Suck my cock!
I'm only a seven out of twelve
When I wank at the bank
I'm ten out of ten my friend
7. Faces In The Darkness (5:24)
Faces in the darkness


There in the distance
You don't see anything
And anything is what keeps me alive

I am the mess inside your mind
I am the black behind the light
I'm the tail of the glowing ball
That drowns in the horizon

I trail the setting sun
I'm every cold, cold night
The last one by your side

I am the face in the night
I make you open your eyes
Everytime you lay yourself to sleep
I am the beat in your veins
I'm the worm in your brain
I'm the one to make you start
Form your dreams

Where do you go from here
When nighttime is drawing near
You ain't gonna run, run, run...

When you open your eyes
You'll see them smile
Faces in the darkness
When you wake up from your dream
To burn the nighttime
Faces in the darkness

You hear the noises of the day
You hear them slowly fade away
And you're the only one sensing time again and again

Where do you go from here
When nighttime is drawing near
You ain't gonna run, run, run...

When you open your eyes
You'll see them smile
Faces in the darkness
When you wake up from your dream
To blame the nighttime
Faces in the darkness

Afraid of the night

Solo

When you open your eyes
You'll see them smile
Faces in the darkness
When you wake up from your dream
To burn the nighttime
Faces in the darkness
8. The Arcane Guild (5:00)
The arcane guild


Rain pouring down from
Beyond this grey shroud of mystery above
The goblet of memories is filling
Yet it can't appease your thirst for love

Salutation - invocation of the light
Of a spark to ignite

Tie the will and watch your dream
Tie your thoughts and they'll convene
The guild of ages
Tie your will, align your mind
Let them raise the blind
The guild remains arcane
In the eyes of this world

Out in the cold you turn inside
You're aware of the sacred tie
Watch: as above so below
You feel us standing by your side

Salutation - invocation of the light
Of a spark to ignite

Tie the will and watch your dream
Tie your thoughts and they'll convene
The guild of ages
Tie your will, align your mind
Let them raise the blind
The guild remains arcane

The guild remains arcane
9. Fire On The Downline (5:48)
Fire on the downline


No... no time to ponder
Take your feet in your hands, swept by the sea
Oh it's too late to wonder where we went wrong
There's no time to win, to lose and to feel

Cries... they go unsung
Memories of plenty fading away
Cries of dying dreams
Where will they run to when there's nowhere to go?

See them kids worn-out and pale
To the Promised Land they're drawn
All the way with a dream that turned into fear

To the other side where the wild winds blow
And the golden rivers flow
They've come all the way for survival
A long trail of tears

Take a look into the eyes of confusion
They carry the torch into the sea of delusion

Fire on the downline
It's the way of the world
Always out to find another dime
Fire on the downline
The game is on

To the evil above you crawl
While you're floundering and kicking around
The wheel of days and nights and no time to sleep

To the other side to one storey higher
Where one less digit is your name
Dying to live one more sunrise, defying fatigue

Throw yourself into a final illusion
See them dive into the tide of the grain

Fire on the downline
It's the way of the world
Always out to find another dime
Fire on the downline
The game is on

Fire on the downline - Fire!
It's the way of the world
Always out to find another dime
Fire on the downline
The game is on

Solo

Fire on the downline
It's the way of the world
Always out to find another dime
Fire on the downline
The game is on
Fire on the downline - Fire!
It's the way of the world
Always out to find another dime
Fire on the downline
The game is on
10. Behind The Gates To Midnight World (8:58)
Behind the gates to midnight world


Born alone, tiny soul
Unknown looks to face from all around
Caught in space and time

A new apparel, different name
We got another stowaway
In life and who's to blame
What a beautiful day
Given birth to be a shame like you
Just another you
Just another fool in the game
Welcome to this place

Starry eyes by the night
Come the first ray of light
You won't find anymore
What you could have seen before

Starry eyes you'll deny
You could read till you were
Leaving the gates to midnight world behind you

Wash away the innocence
On this boiling road to Calvary
Bloodstains on the streets

Blistering me you scourge yourself
Crucify that stowaway in life
That we can blame
Oh what a day

Given birth to be a shame like you
He's me and he is you
Just another fool in the game
Welcome to this place

Starry eyes by the night
Come the first ray of light
You won't find anymore
What you could have seen before

Starry eyes you'll deny
You could read till you were
Leaving the gates to midnight world behind you

Solo

Eyes - a face in the window
Through the looking glass, staring at you
Eyes - and they seem to follow
As relenting gestures they follow your every move

You wanna run
But you can't move away from what you see
In rigour you're frozen with open eyes
Lame - is it one of those dreams in which your body's numb
While you can't turn a blind eye to fear

Running away, running away from his own reflection
Crossing the line, watching the primeval revelation

Running away, running away from the pain of insight
No running away, running away
It is going to fetch you
You just go ahead and close your eyes

Starry eyes by the night
Come the first ray of light
You won't find anymore
What you could have seen before

Starry eyes you'll deny
You could read till you were
Leaving the gates to midnight world behind you
11. Every Night Without You (4:52)
Every night without you


Waiting up all night
I am lying by your side
I can't close my eyes and slowly dream away

I so need to feel you near
The sight i'd see, the breath i'd hear
Watching till the break of day

Long cold nights
I had to stumble through in a lonely life
Wind and rain till you walked inside

Every night without you i'd sail on
Don't know how i'd make it through without you
Every night without you, my angel
Pity for the zillions around
Who're every night without you

It's not always easy to find the words I need
And tell you all the things I really feel

But watching you beside me
The silence tells the truth
We know that it's forever and for real

Long cold roads
I had to stumble down in a long gone life
Wind and rain and you walked inside

Every night without you I'd sail on
Don't know how I'd make it through without you
Every night without you, my angel
Pity for the zillions around
Who're every night without you
Every night without you

I ran around guided by the neon signs
I burned the candle at both ends
Why would we die for the things we've never lived to see
Striving for peace of mind

Solo

Every night with...
Every night without you I'd sail on
Don't know how I'd make it through without you
Every night without you, my angel
Pity for the zillions around
Who're every night without you...
