Don't Fear The Winter
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Autumn - the time of darkness and decay
Life's running shorter day by day

Winter -has gripped the land in cold caress
He's all alone and deeply depressed, she's dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm

Midnight - and on the graveyard a storm is RAGEing
The clods of earth hide his whole life

Homeless - who's lonely now will be for long
The wind will drift him on and on, like the leaves

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me,
There'll be no harm

A silent might that has moved you
Hear your waters stand still
Striding down to the elder
Soon you'll meet her again

Autumn - who's got the time knows nothing yet
Who cares? But watchful are the Dead

Midnight - It's hard to face and deeply sad
But you're asleep so don't look back, you're dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm
Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me,
There'll be no harm


Black In Mind
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've seen it coming, it's got to be.
No illusions at the turning of the century.
All our wishes - forever free -
all destroyed because somehow we lost the masterkey.

Leaving my dreams far behind,
got no ambitions in time if only I'm so

Black in mind, When there's no point in making it.
Black in mind. When there's no hope for love, I'm so
Black in mind. When these madmen are wasting it.
Black in mind. I don't want to be sacrificed for
a territorial war. Leave me alone, I'm so black in mind.

You made me want it, too blind to see
that all it gave me were illusions of reality.
My eyes got used to the things they've seen,
now where's the difference between my life and the TV screen.


Firestorm
~~~~~~~~~
This place, home for all generations, never's been to small
when all life worked hand in hand
the centuries passed one by one
without changing the circumstances
that we needed to be there

Like a firestorm
when all home dies and fear is born
to feed the firestorm
Like a firestorm
that burns the ground you're standing on
we'll feed the firestorm

And then - slowly but surely -
explorers and inventors stepped into
the system they didn't understand
that's when the trouble began
and when the time marched on
they had learned how to destroy

Like a firestorm...

The end of the story is: nothing's impossible
and that's what we're afraid of
apocalyptic signs, our homestead stands in flames
guess we missed the lesson modesty

Like a firestorm...


Sent By The Devil
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Spirits coming from the mind,
waking up my deepest horrors,
capture my thoughts, make me blind.

Weird, 'cause I don't want to see
the abyss of my possibilities.

Scared I can't look away.

It has come to my side.
Sister demon - my bride.

I want you, I need you
and I have set you free.
You're always right behind me,
I know the devil's sent you to me.
You want me, you need me,
now that I've set you free.
Look always right behind you,
You know the devil's sent me to you.

What has started as a longing
almost is possession now,
it drives me again and again.
Put a light into your window,
maybe I can find a hold.
I run against myself 'till I find the end.

Sent by the devil


Lost In The Ice
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
An antarctic land, deadly unknown
where we explored a mountain range
and on the highest ridge we found remains of buildings
like no man's eye had ever seen

A city forgotten on top of the world
and entry we found in a stonewall
and walked a stairway built aeons ago
to streets and houses covered under ice and snow

Walls that had mosaics with pictures and reliefs
faces that no eyes'd ever seen, l like half flesh and half of steel
they had headphones stuck to their skulls
no muscles, just wires, a technical pulse

The creatures look weird, scary and strange
the art on the walls, it told us their tale
They came from a planet lightyears away from here
to bring knowledge, truth and culture to this undeveloped place
the fathers out of space

Before life crept out of water mother earth was occupied
but the climate changed the borders, now they are lost in the ice
Now they are lost in the ice, lost in the ice

They build up life from desert and stones
Our planet grew up helped by elder ones
Then the ice came and they had to move away
to the middle earth and then the stories on the pictures ended
when they had left the land

Before life crept out of water mother earth was occupied
but the climate changed the borders, now they are lost in the ice
Now they are lost in the ice, lost in the ice

All their buildings, streets and stonewalls sleep in this forgotten place
but what happened to the creatures when they were lost in the ice
Now they are lost in the ice, lost in the ice

What a strange and awful vision for us all
it made us shiver to the bone
what if now some of these creatures still survived
in the caves under the Pole?

Before life crept out of water...

And then we walked beneath the city, hours and hours
when suddenly we heard a strange and distant sound
all I remember is my flight from this dark place
a flight from the alien creature's face, my ancestor from space

Lost in the ice

Whoever was these old remains, his blood is flowing in my veins
is flowing in my veins
