1. Time to Shine (4:23)
Today dawned, raining down a fire of promise
In beautiful bright hues
I blaze on while shadows from the peaks in the valleys
Are made to consume truth
I’ve found myself amongst the false and fearsome
But I’m ready to break away
And I’m willing to claim

Chorus:
If I can’t escape the war
If I have to face my weakness, I won’t step aside
I know it’s worth the fight
I won’t cover up the scars
I will climb until I reach the top; I’m aiming high
I know it’s time to shine

I won’t drown swallowing a river of false hope
Or singing the wrong tune
I gain ground when following integrity’s virtue
We’ve just got to break through
The sound of clarity rings high and mighty
Got my feet in a better day
And I’m aiming to stay

Chorus

Glory-bound, trekking through wastelands of the faithless
Turning down offers of destiny
I’ve got better fates to make

Today’s dawn rained down a fiery promise
In beautiful bright hues
You’ll gain ground when following integrity’s virtue
Press on till you break through

Chorus
2. Stand Up (4:01)
I can only imagine what you're going through
I'll keep a light in my window in case you want to sneak on through
Brave, you stand, but I can see you crumbling
Take my hand, I'll be your stable ground

(Stand up)
I'll lift you up by your heartstrings
(Stand up)
I'll never leave you in despair
(Stand up)
We'll face it all together
(Stand up)
Stand up again,

If you're feeling let down, I'll give you cover
You won't drown, we can lean on each other
Stand up!

You know it's half of the battle to realise you need help out
It doesn't matter who made this mess
Why don't you say it out loud?
Think you can't? Well, I think you're capable
Take my hand and resonate the sound.

(Stand up)
I'll lift you up by your heartstrings
(Stand up)
I'll never leave you in despair
(Stand up)
We'll face it all together
(Stand up)
Stand up again,

If you're feeling let down, I'll give you cover
You won't drown, we can lean on each other
Stand up!

We are all drifting,
Let down your anchor, dive into who you want to be
We feel it shifting,
It's all tectonic, don't doubt you've got it

Brave, you stand, but I can see you crumbling
Take my hand, I'll be your stable ground

(Stand up)
I'll lift you up by your heartstrings
(Stand up)
I'll never leave you in despair
(Stand up)
We'll face it all together
(Stand up)
Stand up again,

If you're feeling let down, I'll give you cover
You won't drown, we can lean on each other
Stand up
3. Full Speed Ahead (4:03)
I woke up screaming over the ocean
At night it sinks into me
With what I'm dealing

And what I've chosen
I see it's all up to me

Let it breathe or set it free
I've got to figure out what works for me
Reliving a beginning
It's time to sing full speed ahead
And I'm giving it my best shot
Full speed ahead
And I'm grateful for all I've got
Full speed ahead

I slay the giants and jump the hurdles
A vow of dedication to fill the silence and close the circle
And there are expectations

I live and breathe a living dream
I'll always figure out what works for me
Shifting means is gonna bring velocity
Full speed ahead
And I'm giving it my best shot
Full speed ahead
And I'm grateful for all I've got
Full speed ahead

And as I breathe everything I dreamed I'd be
The odyssey is set in motion
Alacrity
Making a comeback
'Cause I believe
Yes I believe

So let it be what it can be
I'll always figure out what works for me
Pouring steam
Tenacity
I'll keep on singing
Full speed ahead
And I'm giving it my best shot
Full speed ahead
And I'm grateful for all I've got
Full speed ahead
4. Hit Me (4:34)
Transient, look what they found
I suspect both sides who claim to run the parade
They ran us into the ground
Sustenance for only one day
I prayed hard
But all they want is to keep you around

Blood will fill the streets
Unless you sow only what you want to reap

Hit me while I'm falling down
Then order me to be kissing - kissing -
Kissing the blood from my fingers that cut me down
Hit me

Recklessness is not a way out
You can't start a fire to cover the mess you've made
It only strengthens the crowd,
Jump the gun and call it all a fake
We looked up and down
And all at once you wear destiny's crown

Blood will fill the streets
Unless you sow only what you want to reap

Hit me while I'm falling down
Then order me to be kissing - kissing -
Kissing the blood from my fingers that cut me down
Hit me - hit me - hit me
While I'm falling down
Every stage portrays the rage you squall
And the damage that hit me

Did you cheat your way into the game?
How did you paint yourself into the frame?

With all the grace of ten runaway trains
You entertain...

Blood will fill the streets
Unless you sow only what you want to reap

Hit me while I'm falling down
Then order me to be kissing - kissing -
Kissing the blood from my fingers that cut me down
Hit me - hit me - hit me
While I'm falling down
Every stage portrays the rage you squall
And the damage that hit me
5. Fighting Fate (4:35)
You feed her when the voices speak to you
You see her in the witching hour blue
Remembering your vanity is crucial
Recovering your sanity is futile

Setting her free or keeping your hold
You're slowly running out of options

Say your prayers now!

You can't deny the call of blood
We live the divine or die
You had your grip
But you're losing it now and it shows
You're fighting fate

The painted on disguise won't make you immune
Won't cover up the lies as you presume

Moonlight and sin will echo your name
You'll scream until you long for darkness

Can't you feel how?

You can't deny the call of blood
We live the divine or die
You had your grip
But you're losing it now and it shows
You're fighting fate

Righteous tidings, we are the divine!
Such unfortunate timing,

You can't deny the call of blood
We live the divine or die
You had your grip
But you're losing it now and it shows
You're fighting fate

Now you know
The secret flows within your veins
It burns if you hide the signs
You had your grip,
But you're losing it and now you know
You're fighting fate

You can't escape,
You can't deny it
We lie the divine or we die
We are divine
6. Nocturna (4:24)
I wait for night to come
When hearts are still
When minds are numb
I'm dressed to kill

Like fate devours the sun
And brings a chill
There is no one
Escapes my will

First, you'll dream
Then, you'll scream...

Moon and stars will crown me
You, who tried to drown me
Soon you'll bow before me
I am now Nocturna

Embrace the age to come
From God's own quill
The angel has sung
And fallen still

First, you'll plead
Then, you'll bleed...

Moon and stars will crown me
You, who tried to drown me
Soon you'll bow before me
I am now Nocturna

The sweet caress
Defined in infamous ruin
Flows in excess
Caught in a spinning room

Moon and stars will crown me
You, who tried to drown me
Soon you'll bow before me
I am now Nocturna
7. Fatal Mistake (4:59)
Do you hear me calling on your weary, wounded heart?
If I'd given you some light
Could you have found your way from the dark?
Nobody had told me you were walking on the ledge
It wasn't an angel on your shoulder,
So what led you to go?

Wishes and rhymes are empty of meaning
You know, I try so hard
I'm not going to lie, you know that I'm bleeding

(A shot in the dark)
I'm shot in the heart
(I never felt so helpless)
Why did you leave me helpless?
(I need to tell you, you were missing the mark)
When did it start?
(Now the mistake can never be undone)
A fatal mistake can't be undone

I had never wanted so badly to undo the rules of time
But destiny changes when you're older
And now we'll never know

Give me a sign, you know what I'm needing
And though I try so hard

I'm walking the line, don't know what I'm feeling
Oh, but I try so hard

(A shot in the dark)
I'm shot in the heart
(I never felt so helpless)
Why did you leave me helpless?
(I need to tell you, you were missing the mark)
When did it start?
(Now the mistake can never be undone)
A fatal mistake can't be undone

Now the rage of my pain screams "WHY?"
Did you even try?
Where was the fight?

Questions haunt me
How can I sleep at night?
Should've done more to make you see
You were meant to be
Now, what about me?

Wishes and rhymes are empty of meaning
You know, I try so hard
I'm not going to lie, you know that I'm bleeding

(A shot in the dark)
I'm shot in the heart
(I never felt so helpless)
Why did you leave me helpless?
(I need to tell you, you were missing the mark)
When did it start?
(Now the mistake can never be...)
A fatal mistake can't be...

(A shot in the dark)
It's like I'd been shot
(I never felt so helpless)
Why did you leave us?
(I need to tell you, you were missing the mark)
When did it start?
(Now the mistake can never be undone)
Now your mistake can't be undone
8. Shards (4:44)
I tried moving with grace
At the pinnacle of our failure
But you were only saving face

And after all of our mistakes
And all the changes I'm still the same
I thank God for all my strenght

And now I'm much better off today
Though it cost me so much pain
Now you show up and you say

Could you not forgive?
And can you not forget?
Bitterness is no remedy in sorting
Through this pile of glass

You ask me to forgive
And say you'll be my friend
Your ignorance is the malady
In sorting through these
Shards of broken glass

It's all painfully cliché
How you wanted to play the savior
Without owning any blame

You might've dodget the ricochet
But there are dues that you left unpaid
And it'll all come back one day

And I knew much better than to wait
‘Cause we lost a losing game
And it calls for two to play

Could you not forgive?
And can you not forget?
Bitterness is no remedy in sorting
Through this pile of glass

You ask me to forgive
And say you'll be my friend
Your ignorance is the malady
In sorting through these shards

A borrowed olive branch is no apology
And you can take back
All of you new-found chinese philosophy

But can you answer this
Who do you think you were?
And who do you think you are?
I put all your lies to rest
In the graveyard of my heart

How can you ask me
Could you not forgive?
And can you not forget?
Bitterness is no remedy in sorting
Through this pile of glass

You ask me to forgive
‘Cause you want to be my friend
But your ignorance is the malady
In sorting through these
Shards of broken glass

I'll never forget
What you'll never regret
I'll never forget
What you'll never regret
I'll never forget
What you'll never regret
9. Cliché Freak Show (4:06)
We have all seen a double-tongued serpent
And the two-faced man is really yesterday's yawn
So give us something a little more deviant
Because so far, I'm only really bored

Show me yours,
And I'll show you mine

Enter at your own risk
You're not doing anybody any favours
Think you're on the A-list
A cliché freak show
Anger of your own mix
And a special flavour for the masquerade
A cliché, wannabe, freak show

Anonymity seems to have stripped your integrity
So many tortured little girls and boys
Save it

Show me yours
(The same trick, just a different day)
And I'll show you mine

So enter at your own risk
You're not doing anybody any favours
Think you're on the A-list
A cliché freak show
Anger of your own mix
And a special flavour for the masquerade
A cliché, wannabe, freak show

Electric veins pulsing with loathing
Provide a vast nebula of escape

Epic distortions of epic proportions
In a world of
"Show me yours and I'll show you mine"
Step right up and

Enter at your own risk
You're not doing anybody any favours
Think you're on the A-list
A cliché freak show
Anger of your own mix
And a special flavour for the masquerade

Get tattooed
(You're going down the rabbit hole)
(You're just a wannabe)
Bring lots of booze
(Ain't nothing like an ugly troll)
(With no integrity)
For the cliché, wannabe freak show!
10. Eternal Spring (4:15)
A whisper in the moonlight
And the faintest hope within
Such fragile beginnings
Growing strong at every whim
My faith is renewed upon your bated breath

Winter will never steal the warmth I've found in you
We'll bloom forever here
Together in eternal spring

The ancient word of wise men
Cannot fail the test of time
For sooner or later
Every soul will feel the signs
I carry vows and oaths to lay here in your hands
And standing here I know I've reached the promised land

Winter will never steal the warmth I've found in you
We'll bloom forever here together
When night will fall, the light you gave me carries through
We'll shine here
Together in eternal spring

Around me, heavens break with all at stake
Surroundings maybe change, but you remain the same
Astound me every day with all you have to say
And I say, stay...

Winter will never steal the warmth I've found in you
We'll bloom forever here together
When night will fall, the light you gave me carries through
We'll shine here
Together in eternal spring
