2. The Land Of The Wintersun (6:15)
[Music & Lyrics: M. Korsback]

A long time ago in the night: Many men dressed in white, ready to fight, For their land and to
be free. Driven by hatred and fear, and love to a land in despair, which they had to bear. Oh
their
hearts were full of hope and dreams.

[Bridge: 1]
But they had to stand the pain. To have a chance to live again.
The nights were so cold many died while sleeping,
God it was cold even the sun was freezing. Even the stars seemed to freeze upon the sky.

The fear was so strong on both sides, many men lost their pride, broke down and cried. They
could feel the end approach inside. The air was so cold and so dry, that their bodies told lies,
about
condition and time. Before their eyes their lives were passing by.

[Bridge: 2]
But they had to carry on. You don't survive if you're not strong.
The nights were so cold many died while sleeping,
God it was cold even the sun was freezing. Even the stars seemed to freeze upon the sky.

There's no more crying, and no more dying. Forever standing strong, we will carry on.
We live with pleasure, the fear is gone, In the land of the wintersun.

[Solo: H. Juhano / Both / N. Dahlin / P. Vastila / Both & Vastila]
[Repeat: Bridge: 2 - Rep. Chorus]

[This song is dedicated to the brave men, women and children of Finland, who fought against Russia during worldwar II. May god be with you...The second solopart is written by UNTO MONONEN, and taken from the song "Satumaa".]
3. Heaven Or Hell (5:02)
[Music: M. Korsback / H. Juhano]
[Lyrics: M. Korsback / H. Juhano / P. Vastila]

In the night, when you're walking all alone, seeing faces everywhere,
Being scared as hell as usual.
In the day, when the shadows are away, and the darkness cannot stay,
And you try to live as usual.

[Bridge:]
Is this really what you call reality?
Is this really how you think your life should be?

Take a look at the sky, when the night turns to day.
And the sun is painting the trees.
Try to escape, there are one million ways.
Fight and win to be free.

Can't you see, that my life's just misery? No matter how I try to be,
Cause my life goes on as usual.
What is life, without happiness within? If there's nothing left to win,
Why should I go on as usual?

[Bridge:]
Is this really what I call a perfect dream?
I'm smiling, laughing - not as joyful as it seems?
Take a look at the sky, when the night turns to day.
And the sun is painting the trees.
Try to escape, there are one million ways.
Fight and win to be free.

[Solo: Vastila / Korsback]

[Rep. Chorus]
4. Beware Of The Dragons (5:49)
[Music & Lyrics: M. Korsback]

A long time ago, when dragons and humans ruled side by side.
The links were so strong, time just went on with no hate- no lies.

[Bridge: 1]
No evil, no pain. No power no throne.
But there was a man insane who claimed to rule alone.
He gave us no choice, No freedom or peace.
He gave us reality with painful memories.

The time just went on, our lives turned out wrong.
Cause no one could see: this man just changed our destiny, -beware of the dragons!

Dragons in anger and dragons in pain brought us fear again.
What mankind had won, was taken and gone by this man- insane.

[Bridge:2]
We refused to fight dragons, Cause we had to believe:
That mankind was ment to be with so much to achieve.
But we still kill in anger, And sometimes in hate.
Will we ever understand that we will loose god's faith?

The time just goes on, our lives turns out wrong.
Cause no one can see, that mankind changes destinies.
Maybe i'm wrong, maybe this can go on.
But maybe one day, god will make us pay, -beware of the dragons!

[Solo: Both / N. Dahlin / H. Juhano / P. Vastila]

The time just goes on, our lives turns out wrong.
Cause no one can see, that mankind changes destinies.
Maybe i'm wrong, maybe this can go on.
But maybe one day, god will make us pay, -beware of the dragons!
5. Angels In The Sky (8:17)
[Music: M. Korsback. Lyrics: M. Korsback / N. Dahlin]

[Solo: N. Dahlin & M. Korsback]

The night is coming early. The sun has left us for another day.
And we can't see the brightness. Is there possibly another way?

[Bridge:]
As I try to catch the summerbreeze, I see your smile it fades away.

The sun is rising early. The night has left to take another day.
We can't get what we've lost in vain. The silence strikes us like a hurricane.

[Bridge:]
The emtyness will not reduce our pain. You gave us sunshine, now comes the rain.

With the angels in the sky. We'll be with you in minds, hearts and souls.
With the angels in the sky. We'll be with you wherever you go.
We will cry we will never loose this pain, but we will meet another day.
You're an angel in the sky.

[Solo: N. Dahlin / H. Juhano]

And now I feel so lonely, there is no happiness, no light in sight.
But I know that I must go on. And maybe one day I will see things bright.
Maybe one day I will see things bright.

[Solo: N. Dahlin]

And now I feel so lonely, there is no happiness, no light in sight.
But I know that I must go on. And maybe one day I will see things bright.
Maybe one day I will see things bright.

[Rep. Chorus]

[This song is dedicated to our angel: Johanna Carlsson. We will never forget you. R.I.P.]
6. Lost In Time (4:52)
[Music & Lyrics: M. Korsback]

What if we could travel right through time.
What if we could plan our fate, our destiny.
Maybe we should leave our lives behind.
And reach out for the hands of time.

[Bridge:]
Come this way, and we might meet again.
Only time can change our destiny.

Now it's time to leave,
Cause i must give my life a try.
And i know, that when i go,
I'm forever lost in time.

Maybe I will loose myself in time.
Maybe I will rest in peace between dimensions.
But what is our life without a try?
Can we find a goal without a destination?

[Bridge:]
Come this way, and we might meet again.
Only time can change our destiny

Now it's time to leave,
Cause i must give my life a try.
And i know, that when i go,
I'm forever lost in time.

[Solo: Both / Both & P. Vastila / Both / N. Dahlin / H. Juhano / N. Dahlin / H. Juhano / Both/N. Dahlin / H. Juhano / N. Dahlin / H. Juhano / Both / P. Vastila]

7. Heading For Tomorrow (4:25)
[Music: H. Juhano. Lyrics: H. Juhano / D. Henriksson / N. Dahlin]

Waiting for something to come and fulfill my dreams.
By taking away the days from my early years.

[Bridge:]
Feels like I'm running through eternity.
Right now it's time to find the key.

I'll take a ride on the wind, like a bird i'll spread my wings.
I will search for tomorrow, and the end of our time.
When i fly through the sky, might get little higher.
No one can save a world of this kind.

I can't believe all the things I've seen in my dreams.
The future lies close, far away from insanity.

[Bridge:]
Sometimes I wonder if I'll end up in heaven or hell.
I'll ask the old man, he will tell.

I'll take a ride on the wind, like a bird i'll spread my wings.
I will search for tomorrow, and the end of our time.
When i fly through the sky, might get little higher.
No one can save a world of this kind.

[Solo: Both / H. Juhano / N. Dahlin]

I'll take a ride on the wind, like a bird i'll spread my wings.
I will search for tomorrow, and the end of our time.
When i fly through the sky, might get little higher.
No one can save a world of this kind.

-ANYMORE !!!
8. Sunrise In Riverland (4:03)
[Music & Lyrics: H. Juhano / M. Korsback]

Into my life it came, from a road that leads to nowhere.
It tears me apart, into pieces that won't fly away.
Then came the wind, that forced my eyes to see.
No one to blame, even though I am afraid.

[Bridge:]
Fight- I'm going to fight, even though I have no chance at all.
Give up is the last thing I will do.

In the deepest riverland it seeks and destroys.
Making a way for other kinds, it's a neverending war.
Facing my destiny, I know that I can't survive.
There is no turning back, and I know it's gone too far.

[Bridge:]
Fight- I'm going to fight, even though I have no chance at all.
Give up is the last thing I will do.

I will hold my head so high, and the silvertears they'll cry:
They will cry for no reason at all.
I will reach up to the stars, i will rise with the sun.
We'll unite our souls and together, we will stand all for one.

[Solo: Both / P. Vastila]

I will hold my head so high, and the silvertears they'll cry:
They will cry for no reason at all.
I will reach up to the stars, i will rise with the sun.
We'll unite our souls and together, we will stand all for one.

[Solo: Both]
9. Dangerous Mind (3:37)
[Music & Lyrics: M. Korsback / N. Dahlin]

[Intro solo: N. Dahlin / N. Dahlin & P. Vastila]

To climb the highest mountain needs a higher sky, oh no.
To dive the deepest ocean needs a clever mind, and a sign to follow.

[Bridge:]
Always a pressure to the edge, from my dangerous mind. Years passing by, I'm playing the same
old game- And it's always the same.

I'm searching for a challenge, I never beware. Oh no- I'm guided by fear. Wherever I go,
whatever I try, my dangerous mind is always so clear.

[Bridge:]
Always a pressure to the edge, from my dangerous mind. Years passing by, I'm playing the same
old game-And it's always the same.

Well, i'll keep on living, The same old way that i always lived.
And i'm still believing, That this world has more to give.

[Solo: Both / P. Vastila]

Well, i'll keep on living, The same old way that i always lived.
And i'm still believing , That this world has more to give.

[Solo: N. Dahlin]
10. Seasons Of Life (6:19)
[Music & Lyrics: P. Vastila / N. Dahlin]

Fighting through fire and fighting through hell.
Walking on clouds and walking on air.

[Bridge:]
I know I can manage without you, I know that my dreams will come true.
Cause I am the one who will stay strong.

Trying to find through the roads in my life.
Different choices, made everyday.
Trying to find a true soul inside.
The past won't haunt me, i never look back.

I'm feeling the pain again and again.
Approaching the future, I'll have my revenge.

[Bridge:]
I know I can manage without you, I know that my dreams will come true.
Cause I am the one who will stay strong.

Trying to find through the roads in my life.
Different choices, made everyday.
Trying to find a true soul inside.
The past won't haunt me, i never look back.

[Solo: N. Dahlin / Mr. Perkele / P. Vastila / N. Dahlin]

[Rep. Chorus]
11. Tears Of The Nature (5:23)
[Music & Lyrics: M. Korsback]

Inner feelings: Anger in vain. I can't take anymore.
No one needs to tell me what I'm fighting for.
From thunder to sunshine, From sunset 'til dawn, What the hell is going on?
Is this world about to lose control?

[Bridge:]
At least I know that I've been trying. But still our paradise is dying.

And i've seen it so many times, mankind must be blind.
Destroying and killing the nature in pain.
Was my tears for them in vain? -tell me no!!!

Still pollutions pond and dust: Nature bleeds everywhere.
Why ain't mankind smart enough to feel my fear?
My voice is the thunder, my breath is the wind, my tears are falling as rain.
Why ain't mankind smart enough to feel the same?

[Bridge:]
At least I know that I've been trying. But still our paradise is dying.

[Rep. Chorus]

"Why do we have to destroy what God and the nature have given.
Why do we have to destroy what was meant to be our paradise.
I thought mankind was smart enough to understand
that we were brought into this world for one reason:
To rule the earth and to be the head of a body called " nature".
Maybe the storms, the great fires and the earthquakes are just
another way to punish us. And I believe - That's just what we deserve"!

[Solo: P. Vastila / Both]

[Rep. Chorus]
12. Time Of The Prophecies (4:09)
[Music & Lyrics: T. Stolt]

It was the last day of December, in the year 1999.
And the people were waiting for clocks to strike twelve.
With fear and great expectations, they would step into a new millennium.
Not knowing what to face or what to believe.

[Bridge:]
Tell me- Is our destiny coming?
Or were the prophecies all wrong?

I rise with the sun, there's no time to waste.
I'll have to live my life while I am still young.
As Nostradamus once predicted, disaster would strike earth.
Wiping out mankind and everything they have done.

[Bridge:]
Tell me- Is our destiny coming?
Or were the prophecies all wrong?

Hold your head high, be brave and don't cry.
There's still time to live our lives.
Try to find some peace in your mind
And do not think that the end could be near...

[Solo: N. Dahlin / H. Juhano]

Hold your head high, be brave and don't cry.
There's still time to live our lives.
Try to find some peace in your mind
And do not think that the end could be near...

-IN THE TIME OF THE PROPHECIES !!!
