1. Darkest Hours (4:11)
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto and Matias Kupiainen. Music by Matias Kupiainen]

These frantic memories
They bring me down, tormenting peace
The darkness drowns me
I'm restless without sleep
When day breaks, I'm still awake,
I recall my mistakes

I'll be never alone, never again, never alone,
I'll be never alone, never again, never alone...

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.

I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!

Those frozen memories
Laid out for me, all I can see
The night surrounds me
Destroying harmony
What lies beneath, demise in me
I've lost my purity

I'll be never alone, never again, never alone,
I'll be never alone, never again, never alone...

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.

I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!

[Solo]

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I leave my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.

I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!
2. Under Flaming Skies (3:52)
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto and Matias Kupiainen. Music by Timo Kotipelto]

The wind is blowing
There's ashes in the air
The heat is flowing
You stare in despair

Hear the warning
The times are changing fast
The Earth is crying
With a thundering blast

You feel the ground's quaking
The powers unknown are released
The dams breaking
The fear's increased

Bring on the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Bring on the night
Hide from the light
The winds are turning
You're under flaming skies

The sacred fire
Is spreading, destroying all
The exploding spire
Will finally fall

You feel the ground's quaking
The powers unknown are released
The dams breaking
The fear's increased

Bring on the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Bring on the night
Hide from the light
The winds are turning
You're under flaming skies

[Bridge]

Bring on the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Bring on the night
Hide from the light
The winds are turning
You're under flaming skies

Bring on the night, the skies are burning
Bring on the night, the winds are turning
You're under flaming skies
3. Infernal Maze (5:33)
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]

You've faded away
And woe is all that remains
And I have gone astray
My mind full of fury and stains

I'm carrying a seed of insanity
A burden of faded memories

Delusion, destruction, salvation
Now I am forsaken

Bleed in this creed
Awareness all numb this time
Underneath the skin
You're still drilling in

And what I've come to find
A state of mind
I need to find
A way to clarify
My soul will once again be free

But first I need to bury the stain

Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an infernal game
Infernal Maze
My demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.

[Solo ‒ Matias / Jens / Matias / Jens / Duet]

Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an infernal game
Infernal Maze
My demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.

Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an infernal game
Infernal Maze
My demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.

Infernal Maze
These demons, these demons,
Haunting me, Infernal Maze
Infernal Maze
Infernal Maze.
4. Fairness Justified (4:21)
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]

I thought I could not find
Someone who's so alike
The way you think, I feel it in my heart

It is so hard to see
What's happening to me
Two souls uniting and can't be apart

All these lonely nights and days let me scarred

Waiting all my life
This feeling
I have been denied
I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine
Awareness purified
Awaken in the night
I've been dreaming
Waited for a sign
I've seen it
Heavenly divine
Some fairness will finally be
Justified

If there's a past life
I know you've been all mine
You are forever the one, divine

All these lonely nights and days let me scarred

Waiting all my life
This feeling
I have been denied
I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine
Awareness purified
Awaken in the night
I've been dreaming
Waited for a sign
I've seen it
Heavenly divine
Some fairness will finally be
Justified

[Solo ‒ Matias]

I'm watching when you sleep
And listen as you breathe
I'm close to you and keep you warm

Waiting all my life
This feeling
I have been denied
I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine
Awareness purified
Awaken in the night
I've been dreaming
Waited for a sign
I've seen it
Heavenly divine
Some fairness will finally be
Justified
5. The Game Never Ends (3:54)
[Lyrics and Music by Jens Johansson]

Crocodile tears from industrial giants,
apologies counting for nothing
Graveyard obssessions and shallow confessions,
The game never ends in a draw.

An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away with our cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.

Fragile and cold by the side of a mountain,
Big hopelessness bearing to promise,
Brothers and sisters of metal together
We'll conquer the evil as one!

An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away with our cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.

[Solo ‒ Jens]

An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away with our cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.
6. Lifetime In A Moment (6:39)
[Lyrics and Music by Lauri Porra]

"Omnia sol temperat, purus et subtilis.
Novo mundo reserat faciem Aprilis"

From the dark, I watch you go away
I will never see you...
Again

Every passing day prolongs my pain
I am slowly fading...
Into the void

Voice without a sound
A sound that no one cares to hear
A second round to live your life
Just passed away

Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment

Seize the say, don't let it slip...
Away
Cherish every moment...
Before it's gone

Voice without a sound
A sound that no one cares to hear
A second round to live your life
Just passed away
Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment

[Solo ‒ Matias]

Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment

Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment
7. Move The Mountain (5:34)
[Lyrics and Music by Jens Johansson]

Would you move the mountain,
Would you build a tower,
Would you drink the sunshine,
Like a wilted flower?

Would you waste that hour
If you knew this full moon would be
The last one you'd see?

Would you gaze in wonder
While the world was turning,
While the moon made quiet
All the years of yearning?

Would the flame keep burning,
If you knew the powers that be
Could set you free?

Don't know why you had to go
In the stormy night, a flame in the darkness
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.

Swam around in circles,
In the angry ocean
Had a dream of safety
That's lost emotion.

Could a faded notion
Make you find your way back to shore,
Looking for more?

So we head for safety,
But we never get there
And I brush the shadows
From your scary nightmare

On the road to nowhere,
Would you help me carry my cross and set me free?

Don't know why you had to go
In the stormy night, a flame in the darkness
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.

[Solo ‒ Jens]

Don't know why you had to go
In the stormy night, a flame in the darkness
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.
8. Event Horizon (4:24)
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]

[Computer:] Warning! Event horizon ahead. Warning!

Standing outside
In darkness my breath is steaming
The sky's open wide
I hear the silent screaming

Deep in the dark, somewhere in space
Spinning around, leaving no trace

Nothing escapes
And the boundary's been breached
All matter and shape
Destination's reached

A star dies, collapsing in its core
End of the journey, it won't be seen anymore

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Light years away, there is no concern
A force of gravity, event horizon lies ahead

[Solo ‒ Matias / Duet / Jens / Duet]

[Computer:] Alert! Destination's reached

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Light years away, there is no concern
A force of gravity, event horizon lies ahead

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Light years away, there is no concern
A force of gravity, event horizon lies ahead

[Computer:] Warning! Imaginable impact. Please evacuate immediately.
Counting... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
9. Elysium (18:07)
[Lyrics By Matias Kupiainen and Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]

[Part 1]

I've never felt like this before
Am I awaken or drifting?
There's a hole in the sky
Am I alive? Did I survive?

Broken pictures on my wall
A story of fallen heroes
Now stare ahead with their blind eyes on
Lost horizon

Sometimes the traces of life with you
Are clearer in my mind than ever
I'm reaching this feeling
It's misleading me away from you

Tonight I'll find what I've been searching for
You can rip off my wings once more
I'm not afraid anymore
I'm not afraid anymore

[Solo ‒ Matias / Jens]

Sometimes the traces of life with you
Are clearer in my mind than ever
I'm reaching this feeling
It's misleading me away from you

Tonight I'll find what I've been searching for
You can rip off my wings once more
I'm not afraid anymore
I am ready to fall
I'm not afraid anymore

[Part 2]

I am lying on the frozen ground alone
I've got lost on my way, my time is up
I'm done

I need to find the key
To eternal life and see
The joy, the smile,
The overwhelming love of your heart
Is what I need

Give me a sign, and show me the way
To the sacred place

I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms

Your shadow lurking in the corner of my eye
I'm losing sense of what's real
and what's a lie

I need to find the key
To eternal life and see
The joy, the smile,
The overwhelming love of your heart
Is what I need

Give me a sign, and show me the way
To the sacred place

I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms

How all began?
Your faith was not mine
Remedy this fallen life

I feel it burning with me ahead
The earth is turning to red
I'm staring at the flaming skies
Too tired to figth, I just close my eyes

[Solo ‒ Jens / Matias / Duet]

I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms

I am holding a falling angel
in my arms

[Part 3]

This life has been too long
There's hope everywhere I go

Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let this soul be free

Eternal light
Blinded my eyes

Feel no sorrow
Joy will follow
Now lay down
And rest in my arms

[Solo ‒ Jens]

Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let your soul be free

Be afraid no more,
Just take my hand,
I'll guide you through the storm
We're finally home

Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let your soul be free

Be afraid no more,
Just take my hand,
I'll guide you through the storm
We're finally home

We're finally home
