1. Raging Machine
Calling in silence, deep in our souls
Hunger grows more
It lightens our way higher up to the goal

refrain2:
(We'll stand up and fight!)
The vision is clear
(We'll ride trough the night!)
Without any fear

refrain:
Louder and faster with power we play
This raging machine is blocking your way
We're crushing you under and you will become
The one who survives and never lets us down
You'll stand on our ground

Hearts on the run, we are always alone
Longing for home but never give up, we are here to be shown

refrain2

we'll stand up and fight! The vision is clear
we'll ride trough the night! Without any fear

refrain (2x)
2. Under the Burning Sky
Kneeling before this oasis of solitude
The ocean of silence drowning your memory
I keep reaching for you through the eyes of my mind
Through the wasteland of countless emotions entwined

Chorus:
May the burning sky come crashing down
And kingdoms fall
I'm crawling through this all
Feel my faith in you
Across the worlds that we're apart

Gazing to the sky from this maze of eternity
The stars burn my eyes and sear my immortal soul
I keep reaching for you, though my eyes are blind

Chorus:
May the burning sky come crashing down
And kingdoms fall
I'm crawling through this all
Feel my faith in you
Across the worlds that we're apart

Through the wasteland of countless emotions entwined
Through the eye of the storm raging on in my mind

Chorus:
May the burning sky come crashing down
And kingdoms fall
I'm crawling through this all
Feel my faith in you
Across the worlds that we're apart

And kingdoms fall
I'm crawling through this all
Feel my faith in you
Across the worlds that we're apart
3. Give Me a Reason
Time
Time is my only friend
It keeps me alive
With things we pretend
Why
Why can't I close my eyes
Just lay down by myself
And fly to the skies

refrain:
Pushing me down, around and around
Trying to keep it in control
Tear me apart take a piece of my heart
And time has taken its toll
Now I'm broken
But I open my arms
and I yell to the world
But my voice can't be heard
I am stronger, no longer
in the dark

'cause you give me a reason
to go on

I, I feel the pain in me
it crawls through the walls of my darkest memories

refrain
'cause you give me a reason
You give me a reason
to go on

I know what I want
And I know what I need
But sometimes I fall and I bleed

Now I'm broken
But I open my arms
and I yell to the world
But my voice can't be heard
I am stronger, no longer
in the dark
'cause you give me a reason
you give me a reason
yeah you give me a reason
to go on
4. Sign of Our Times
What if today
You had the chance
To be the king of your land
Would you be strong
Could you stand tall
Or would you fall from
Fear
Of the light
And the sight
Of what you would leave behind
Seize the moment of your
Coronation
To live it over
And defy the hands of time

refrain:
These are the days you will remember
These are your lines, you have to scream them aloud
This is the life you lead, your moment's now
You'll remain a sign, a sign of our times

Is there redemption
Or just oblivion
For the weak
" What have I built
What has collapsed
What was it worth "
Seek
Trough your mind
And you'll find
All that you have left behind
Seize the moment
To defy the hands of time

refrain

By tomorrow we'll be gone
When all is said and all is done
Forgotten like last winter's snow

refrain
5. Sweet Madness
I turn the key
I dare not see
I close my eyes and enter the fear
The evil voice
That says I have no choice
It leads me to the sea
Of violent waves anger
Suppressed by the days
From pounding waves
I find my grace
It makes me shout

refrain:
Get out of my dreams, away, my sweet madness
Someone else will soon define you
You have to stay out of my dreams, away, my sweet madness
Guess we have to say goodbye

You hold the time
My peace of mind
Hangs by a thread
Now nothing is clear
And all the while
From the darkest aisle
Your power clings to me
Like a violent waves of anger
I fail to erase
From pounding waves
I find my grace
It makes me shout

refrain

Goodbye
Tears me up inside
Illusions have to die

refrain
6. Father
Now I've got myself together
The things you do have made me sad
Ties that should last forever
Break loose in front of all that's bad

No father of mine (2x)

My heart feels like a burning
Standing in front of all you do
No, I won't be returning
Nothing could bring me back to you

No father of mine (3x)

refrain:
Why justify
All your lies
Something you always deny
You're no good
Fatherhood
That is dead and gone

No father of mine (2x)

refrain (2x)
7. Keepers of the Night
This dark nocturnal secret
Binding us in slumber
We pour deep sleep in the ears of men

Walked through the fire of wicked day
In fear it would scorch my soul away
But the devil looks after his own

Fly on the wings of this mystery
You've always known

refrain:
We're alive
We are the Keepers of the night
And we are sin and we're sacrifice
Hold back the light
We are the Keepers of the night
We live your dreams as we ride the skies in disguise

The owls sing enraptured
The worship has begun
The things in dreams we dare set free

Fly on the wings of this mystery
Tonight

refrain

Finally we welcome the dawn
The night is done, the dream withdrawn
And your fantasies are gone

To sleep in silent whispers
While daytime runs its course
Until another dusk is born

refrain
8. Tears Keep Falling
Walking in the shadows of the echoes of goodbye
Closing the gates inside my mind

Each man kills the things he loves, yet each man does not die
The feeling is keeping me alive

refrain:
I heard you call
I watched you fall from grace

refrain2:
Tears keep falling forever more
Feel the rain
Feed the pain
tears are drowning me
Searing, healing me
Healing me

Feel the rain
Feel my pain
A tale of beauty torn asunder and apart
The embers are dying on the floor

The years, the tears, the fears
The silent, violent solitary heart
Longing to live this all once more

I heard you call
I watched you fall

refrain2

You never knew me
Can't you ever leave me be?

refrain

refrain2

Feel the pouring rain
Feed my pain

You never knew me
9. Hero's Gold
We venture
We battle
We strive
For a time and a space of our own
Free possession
Defying oppression
We cry

You live in your dreams and
Your dreams are becoming
Your god

We rage
We fight
Not to fade out of the world
Solitary
Someday we might understand

Chorus:
That as soon as you're born
You're expected to catch the rainbow

Chorus2:
So you strive for the hero's gold
There's a fire in your eyes and your fate is foretold
But in time you'll wane as your heart grows old
On your quest for eternal fame

We're prophets
We're all men
We're gods
All gods act like they're products for men

Life's a concept
And lies will pass into history

Chorus:
And as soon as you're born
You're expected to catch the rainbow

Chorus2:
So you strive for the hero's gold
There's a fire in your eyes and your fate is foretold
But in time you'll wane as your heart grows old
On your quest for eternal fame

Chorus2:
So you strive for the hero's gold
There's a fire in your eyes and your fate is foretold
But in time you'll wane as your heart grows old
On your quest for eternal fame

Chorus2:
So you strive for the hero's gold
There's a fire in your eyes and your fate is foretold
But in time you'll wane as your heart grows old
On your quest for eternal fame

Chorus2:
So you strive for the hero's gold
There's a fire in your eyes and your fate is foretold
But in time you'll wane as your heart grows old
On your quest for eternal fame
Oh, oh, oh..
10. My Mistake
There was a day when everything was good
The sky so blue
And everywhere I went I knew the truth
And what to do

But I got lost somehow and soon I served the one to blame
I walked the ways of sorrow craving fortune and fame

I broke all the promises I made
Yes I have to leave this masquerade
And I'm leaving it now

refrain:
Darkness is falling on this road I chose to take
But soon will come the hour of unmasking
In the end I'll have to pay
For my mistake

Yes I've been down with the fallen ones
I spat right on their face
Commitment and compassion were just a faint memory trace

But it wasn't real, no, just a dream
One day I woke up I can't believe
Such a fool, just a tool in this grand masquerade
We create and we hate

refrain

I stumble on this road I had to take
Waiting for the hour of unmasking
Just name the price and I will pay
For my mistake
My mistake

I'll stand corrected

refrain
11. Unscarred Within
From the womb to the grave
Is a short trip after all
So it better be a good one

Unlike you
I won't just sit around and waste my life
No, I'm going for the home run

refrain2:
Each night and day
I wonder what more lies up ahead

refrain:
Destined to win
I reach for the world to fulfill my desires
Unscarred within
I keep reaching higher and higher
Determined to never be still

Blood and sweat
(But never tears!)
Mark the road that I have walked
Never taking a sidestep

All the filth
That buries and consumes our precious world
Never weakened my mindset

refrain2

refrain
