Submitted by level 휘리언
1. Agony (Intro) (1:53)
2. Facing My Destiny (5:37)
[Music: Korsbäck, Lyrics: Korsbäck]

As I am thinking my destiny;
Never knowing what will be.

Facing the things that I have done,
It would be easier to run, but to face them makes me free.

So I’m not proud but now I’m strong,
And I’ve waited for so long.

Before I was blind but now I see,
That you cannot win a victory, if you don’t fight and that’s for sure.

Now I’m moving on,I won’t cry no more.
I’m leaving the bad things I have seen,
And walk into my dreams,
Now I’m facing my own destiny.

I’m not proud but now I’m strong,
And I’ve waited for so long.

Before I was blind but now I see,
That you cannot win a victory, if i don’t fight and now I will.

Now I’m all alone, and I’m moving on,
I’m leaving the bad things I have seen.
And walk into my dreams,
Now I’m facing my own destiny.

[Solo]

Now I’m all alone, and I’m moving on,
I’m leaving the bad things I have seen.
And walk into my dreams,
Now I’m facing my own destiny.

Now I’m all alone, and I’m moving on,
I’m leaving the bad things I have seen.
And walk into my dreams,
Now I’m facing my own destiny.

(Thoughts: This song is pretty much about taking the step to break free from something that doesn’t make you happy anymore. Lot’s of issues appear, and you lose your strength somehow. The important thing is to stay strong, and that’s why some of the lyrics appear twice in this song. /Mikko)
3. Hope (4:00)
[Music: Keiski, Lyrics: Keiski]

Since you’ve been gone
I’ve seen your picture in my mind each and every day.
Why is it so that one must leave and one must stay?
It happens every day.

I keep on wondering why. Why is it so?
Someone please tell me because I just need to know.

All I can do is hope that I will see you again.
But ‘till that day I know I’ll just have to wait.

When we were young
Life was a game and we just laughed,it seems like yesterday.
Sometimes I dream that you are here, but then again
When I wake up you disappear.

I keep on wondering why. Why is it so?
Someone please tell me because I just need to know.

All I can do is hope that I will see you again.
But ‘till that day I know I’ll just have to wait.

[Solo]

There certain things
That I can’t learn to undersand even if I try.
And ‘til that day when we will meet again my friend.
I keep on asking my self why.

I keep on wondering why. Why is it so?
Someone please tell me because I just need to know.

All I can do is hope that I will see you again.
But ‘till that day I know I’ll just have to wait.

All I can do is hope that I will see you again.
But ‘till that day I know I’ll just have to wait.

(This song is about loosing a friend and the memories that are haunting you. I dedicate this song to my dear beloved cousin Leif Rikard Keiski. R.I.P)
4. To Live Another Day (5:04)
[Music: Korsbäck, Lyrics: Korsbäck]

Is this what I had in mind, when I tried to see the sign?
The best days of my life just when away.
With tears in my eyes,years are passing by,
I’m getting older every day.

So please help me see, the best things that life can give,
Cause I wanna be free.
I wanna live some more, there’s so much to explore,
“Hey Life!”, please let me feel.

Why am I scared to live tomorrow?
Why am I scared to leave today?
Will the future bring me joy or sorrow?
Is there time enough for me to pray, and live another day?

What if life could treat me well and cast away the spell,
That always has and still is haunting me.
I have to stand up strong, be brave and carry on,
Not to lose my pride and dignity.

What if i could change my life, add some light into the night,
Cause I wanna be free.
I wanna live some more, there’s so much to explore,
“Hey Life!”, please let me feel.

Why am I scared to live tomorrow?
Why am I scared to leave today?
Will the future bring me joy or sorrow?
Is there time enough for me to pray, and live another day?

[Solo]

Why am I scared to live tomorrow?
Why am I scared to leave today?
Will the future bring me joy or sorrow?
Is there time enough for me to pray, and live another day?

(Thoughts: This song is about the fact that we do get older every day. Suddenly you start to regret the bad things you’ve done in the past and you realize that you’re just as fragile as everyone else. /Mikko)
5. Gift of Life (7:20)
[Music: Korsbäck, Lyrics: Korsbäck]

In the end of life I’ll be falling, that’s what I have been told.
When ancient voices are calling, it’s time to go.
Only god knows where I am going, cause I have not been foretold.
All the good and bad will be showing. Then I will know.

[Keiski:]
But I cannot fall from down below
Can’t escape from my own hell.
And I don’t know when I’ll have to go
The end of life depends on what I am.

I just have to change my life and find away,
To see the light beyond tragedies, and take what life is giving me.
I know that I’ll find my way to paradise.
Now I see with open eyes, and reach out for the gift of life.

My life is passing before me,but all the bad things are gone.
Maybe all my prayers erased them? Cause there are none.
When the end of my life approaches, how come I am not scared?
Cause I will meet all my loved ones.they’ll all be there.

[Keiski:]
I believe that we will meet again,
Where it’s bright and always day.
An inner voice just keeps on telling me,
The end of life depends on what you’ve been.

I just have to change my life and find away,
To see the light beyond tragedies, and take what life is giving me.
I know that I’ll find my way to paradise.
Now I see with open eyes, and reach out for the gift of life.

[Solo]

I just have to change my life and find away,
To see the light beyond tragedies, and take what life is giving me.
I know that I’ll find my way to paradise.
Now I see with open eyes, and reach out for the gift of life.

I just have to change my life and find away,
To see the light beyond tragedies, and take what life is giving me.
I’ll find my way to paradise, and reach out for the gift of life.

[Keiski:]
Well I don’t know why I’m still crying.
Cause I have seen the day,but the light won’t dry my tears away.
And deep inside I just keep on dying.
Could someone show the way, to give me strength to live and pray.

(Thoughts: These are the feeling that came to me when I lost my mom. Dimitri sings the thoughts that kept spinning around in my head, and Ola the words that I spoke out loud. The angels choir is the thing I wanna hear when it’s time for me to resign…But ‘til then: -Rock on!!! /Mikko)
6. One Day (6:15)
[Music: Halén, Lyrics: Halén]

What is love supposed to be?
Could it be a feeling inside of me?
Then why does it makes you sad?
All these emotions that we keep inside.
Tell me…

Why can’t we go on like we used to do.
Leave all the troubles behind.
Devastating that’s a shame, when I’m the one to blame.

Oneday I will find you
Oneday I will find my love
Summer turning into autumn, makes me realize
Even darker skies, they are approaching

What is love supposed to be?
A feeling inside that makes you free
Then why does it makes me lie?
Shouldn’t have to be so hard
Like grasping for the stars.

Why can’t we go on like we used to do.
Leave all the troubles behind.
Devastating that’s a shame, when I’m the one to blame.

Oneday I will find you
Oneday I will find my love
Summer turning into autumn, makes me realize
Even darker skies, they are approaching

Will I make it through the day?
Without you by my side.
Is there a chance, that’s we’ll meet again?
Oneday,we will meet my friend.

(Thoughts: This song was written when I still believed in love…)
7. Fight For Life (5:32)
[Music: Östros, Lyrics: Östros]

All your life you’ve tried to smile.
But something warn you to die.

There’s just things hard to explain.
I will keep on asking why.

You can call it what you want.
There’s a reason I wont try.

There’s just things hard to explain.
I will keep on asking why.

It must be an evil pain.
But you keep on struggling.
It’s hard for you to explain.
You’ve got to fight for life.

I once saw it every day.
But you had to walk away.

There’s just things hard to explain.
I will keep on asking why.

It must be an evil pain.
But you keep on struggling.
It’s hard for you to explain.
You’ve got to fight for life.

[Solo]

There’s just things hard to explain.
I will keep on asking why.

It must be an evil pain.
But you keep on struggling.
It’s hard for you to explain.
You’ve got to fight for life.

(This song is dedicated to Lihnda)
8. Valley of Sunlight (6:27)
[Music: Korsbäck / Östros / Keiski, Lyrics: Korsbäck]

So we are searching for a valley far away.
But we have no direction.
But when we get there we will meditate and pray.
For mankind's own perfection.

Things have gone so wrong, yet we must carry on.
We must walk for days and nights, to find another home.

To the valley of sunlight we will arrive,
And we will lead a better life.
No pollutions, anguish and cries,
Just mother nature, mankind and the light.

We lose our spirits, many moons have passed us by.
And we have no protection.
Surrounding darkness, we can’t wait to see the light.
We lose our minds from pressure.

Still we share this dream, to live in dignity.
We believe that we can achieve, to find another home

To the valley of sunlight we will arrive,
And we will lead a better life.
No pollutions, anguish and cries,
Just mother nature, mankind and the light.

[Solo]

To the valley of sunlight we will arrive,
And we will lead a better life.
No pollutions, anguish and cries,
Just mother nature, mankind and the light.

To the valley of sunlight we will arrive,
And we will live a glorious life.
No more shadows, darkness or fright,
Just mother nature, mankind and the light.

(Thoughts: When peace finally reaced Paradisia, mankind was defeated and outnumbered. Man had no place to live, sine earth was no more. Mandkind was now the pray and their search for a new home, for a new Mother Nature begins. This is their story.)
9. Times of Glory (8:21)
[Music: Insania, Lyrics: Korsbäck]

When I’m thinking of the life that we have lived,
I realize that times are gone.
When words were spoken out, but little was achieved.
But now a new life has begun.

Cause deep inside our hearts, a feeling is growing strong.
That we have so much left to show.

We’ve lived in Fantasy, in Illusions and in Dreams.
And we’ve been fighting for this life.
We’ve seen the sunrise shine, and Hope is what we feel.
We have one chance to change our lives.

We burn the bridges down, and leave the past behind.
Cause new dimensions waits, and now it is our time!

Cause you don’t know how far your eyes can see.
And that your life turns out to be just the way you see it.
So we try to change our destiny,
Knowing that we all could be facing times of glory.

Maybe you’re too blind to see….

[Solo]

We burn the bridges down, and leave the past behind.
Cause new dimensions waits, and now it is our time!

Cause you don’t know how far your eyes can see.
And that your life turns out to be just the way you see it.
So we try to change our destiny,
Knowing that we all could be facing times of glory.

(Thoughts: When we slowly started to realize that this could be a new start for us, we were so excited, and rehearsing was the best thing ever! This is maybe not a true story if you ask all the parts involved. But this is the story of one side. And remember: A story can be told in many dofferent ways. /Mikko)
10. Dreams (5:49)
[Music: Stolt, Lyrics: Stolt]

I have been searching for the answers many times.,
In time we will learn the secrets of life.
The rules that are written will they show wrong from right?
The good from the bad, the rich from the poor?

Thoughts keep running through my head.
The feeling of solitude in this everlasting game,
But in the end we will see,
The gates of heaven may be our final destiny.

In my dreams I travel to a place far beyond reality
I let my mind fly free
This sets me free for all eternity, you can’t imprison me.
My dreams are waiting for me.

When tome has run out and they carve your name in stone,
Our maker will judge us for our deeds in the past.
Relieved we may enter the realms of afterlife,
But don’r ever forget the way could go down.

In fire, our souls would cry out,
Forgiveness of sins committed in life.
A place in heaven is denied,
An ages the darkness will consume our lies.

In my dreams I travel to a place far beyond reality
I let my mind fly free
This sets me free for all eternity, you can’t imprison me.
My dreams are waiting for me.

[Solo]

In my dreams I travel to a place far beyond reality
I let my mind fly free
This sets me free for all eternity, you can’t imprison me.
My dreams are waiting for me.

In my dreams I travel to a place far beyond reality
I let my mind fly free
This sets me free for all eternity, you can’t imprison me.
My dreams are waiting for me.

My dreams are waiting for me.
My dreams are waiting for me.

(This song is about all the demands that you encounter during life and the wandering about where you go after life has ended. Laws, rules and social stress keeps you in chains and the only place where you truly can be free is in your dreams)
11. Time Passes By (3:21)
[Music: Halén, Lyrics: Halén]

Ain’t it funny, the way life goes?
Ain’t it funny,how life carries on?
Have we noticed,how time passes by?
Watching the light. Fade away.

Ain’t it funny, the way life goes?
Ain’t it funny, how our dreams carry on?
They try to tell me, you take my breath away, away.

We’ve been together for some time.
Maybe the best days of my life.
I was lonely,before I met you.
And you keep helping me trough the hard times.

Time passes by.
Time passes by.

If you see the clouds on my sky.
I know that you will wash away.
And keep on pushing me through the sunrise.
Always aware that I can count on you.
If you would take me back.
Then I maybe would stop to cry.
I’m in need of someone like you.
To keep my faith and hold me tight.
You know I’m growing stronger.
When I’m down and you pick me up.
Why can’t I see you’re the one for me.

(Thoughts: …You are not the one for me…)
12. Alive (6:26)
[Music: Keiski, Lyrics: Keiski / Korsbäck]

I am on my own.
There are feeling unknown,they’re not gone.
I thought I was free to live and fulfill all that I dreamed.

But it all changed so suddenly.
Life wasn’t what it supposed to be.
And if I keep on standing still,
I know I won’t be free.

I’ve been down and paralyzed.
Questions running through my mind. Is this right?
I just want to live my life, but instead I’m falling apart.

But it all changed so suddenly.
Life wasn’t what it supposed to be.
And if I keep on standing still,
I know I won’t be free.

I’m not alive if I can’t live my own life,
Time passes by and I’m loosing my mind.
I’m not denying, deep inside I’m crying.
Tears from my heart, hear me please,
Let me be alive.

[Solo]

I have come to realize.
I must loose all my fear, starting here.
It might take some time for me to grow strong
And just to break free.

I’m not alive if I can’t live my own life,
Time passes by and I’m loosing my mind.
I’m not denying, deep inside I’m crying.
Tears from my heart, hear me please,
Let me be alive.

I’m not alive if I can’t live my own life,
Time passes by and I’m loosing my mind.
I’m not denying, deep inside I’m crying, fighting, dying
Let me be alive.

(This song is about longing to be free and do what you always to do, but there’s always someone who wants screw it up. It’s important to not give up and keep on struggling. As a good friend once said to me: “Keep on doin’ what you believe in, that’s the key to success”)
