1. Keeping the Dream Alive (5:55)
For such a long time
We have sat here in the dark
Quiet observers of your mind falling apart
We’ve faced so many days
When you were wasted
Trading power for lust
Hoping you’d become
Someone that we could trust

You have found
A sad excuse to free you from sadness
You have told
The same old lies again
You deny
The truth that’s pumping
Right in front of your eyes
And don’t even have the guts to assume
The choices you have to make

Here we stand
Healing the wounds now the war is over
Stitching the shreds of our hearts again
Here we stand
Trying to find a reason to follow on
A meaning for our lives
Keeping the dream alive

Forever we will be
Thinking of all the places we could have seen
And all the battles that together we could win
Our fate was strong, it was great
I may forget but I’ll never forgive, no
The way you failed on us
When we needed you the most

You may cry
Until your soul is weary and black as the night
But we’ll keep riding on to reclaim
The victory on every fight

Here we stand
Healing the wounds now the war is over
Stitching the shreds of our hearts again
Here we stand
Trying to find a reason to follow on
A meaning for our lives
Keeping the dream alive

We must keep the dream alive
The daydream alive

Here we stand
Healing the wounds now the war is over
Stitching the shreds of our hearts again
Here we stand
Trying to find a reason to follow on
A meaning for our lives
Keeping the dream alive
2. Like Darkness Rules the Night (5:11)
A shadow’s been lurking
Deep within the labyrinth of my mind
A whisper of death and decay
Growing in silence
It won’t go away
A spark of insanity
Glowing in the deep
Beckoning me
And though I try to run from it
I know I will end up giving in

(It was) just when I saw
Life fading from dying eyes
That I felt whole and strong
In my miserable life

Killing was the only way
For me to thrive
(And rule like darkness)
And rule like darkness rules the night

I feel so much more alive than
I’ve been before
Now that murder taints my heart
And life seems to have a reason
Now that my story is written in blood

I am the twisted face of hate
Invading your nightmares
The cold incarnation of your deepest fears
A scourge of madness

Killing was the only way
For me to thrive
(And rule like darkness)
Slaying is the only way
To ease my mind
(And rule like darkness)
And rule like darkness rules the night

Isn’t it strange?
When at every minute of every day
You just sit there, hoping to belong, longing to feel alright
Waiting for that especial moment, that milestone
That will turn your existence upside down
And you will become
Everything you’ve ever wanted to be

Killing was the only way
For me to thrive
(And rule like darkness)
Slaying is the only way
To ease my mind
(And rule like darkness)
And rule like darkness rules the night
3. Watch Me Rise (5:37)
Dance in darkness
Swing to your master, your guide
Claiming to be all I need
You're nothing but mischief and lies

Scream in madness
Cry to your devil, your pride
Saying I need to believe
Now you are next in line

Within the dark
I'll reap off your life
There's no way out
Just let me take you down

The bringer of doom
Now I will have your soul
Forever I rule
On top I stand alone
My deepest desire's
The fear inside your eyes
Get down on your knees
As you watch me rise

Crawl like a beast
Taste the venom of lust
Slowly infecting your veins
When I am earning your trust

Feel the temptation
To join me in my dance of death
And your life drain away
When facing the final test
4. The Guts of Hell (4:33)
Bleeding eyes boiling in corrosion
A bitter taste of ashes in my mouth
Acid clay clutching on my limbs
As a million blades of fire seem to crawl inside my skin
Need to break out

Through the blazing walls
I seal my fate
For too long I’ve been tortured
Now at last I run away
For a long time trapped in shadows and oblivion
My damned soul finally can break free
From the guts of hell

Souls crying
Daylight dying
Death howls in endless fields of desolation
Life dying
Beauty crying
Tormented souls in eternal desecration

“But the fearful, and unbelieving
And the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers
And sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars
Shall have their part in the lake which burneth
With fire and brimstone: Which is the second death"

(Souls crying, daylight dying)
I’m aware I can’t be afraid
I have to fight to stop this agonizing wait
(Life dying, beauty crying)
What shall I do to find my own salvation?
What will I endure to reach my vindication?
5. The Age of Sadness (5:12)
Lights will guide your way
When all the colors fade to grey
And there’s no one else to blame
In the age of sadness
Deep within your soul
When nothing seem to fill the hole
You will find the strength
To fly away from darkness

Breathe
Allow your senses to fly
And grieve
As our essence slowly dies

I know
We’ve lost our way
Killing each other
Draining the waters
With no salvation we live
But someday

Lights will guide your way
When all the colors fade to grey
And there’s no one else to blame
In the age of sadness
Deep within your soul
When nothing seem to fill the hole
You will find the strength
To fly away from darkness

Oh no!
We’re losing control
We’re stripped of the life we used to know
We’re trapped in cages of delusion
Forever lost with no solution

But I know
We’ll find a way
Helping each other
Restoring the order
At the end of the tunnel I see
But someday

Lights will guide your way
When all the colors fade to grey
And there’s no one else to blame
In the age of sadness
Deep within your soul
When nothing seem to fill the hole
You will find the strength
To fly away from darkness

Deep within your soul
When nothing fills the hole
You will find the strength
To fly away
6. Wings of Destruction (4:56)
Crumbling skies
We are the last men alive
Crawling on the edge
About to face our own demise
United we stand
We have blood in our hands
Staring into the eyes of death
Just waiting for the end

(But) we don’t know
What’s out there for us
So we will not give up
We’ll fight

Lightning strikes
Igniting the skies
We struggle to stay awake
And live throughout the night

See the smoking clouds
Hear them crying out loud
As our world is burning
And there is no way out

(But) we don’t know
What’s out there for us
So we will not give up
We’ll fight

Beneath the wings of destruction
We must find a way to create a better life
And in our souls of corruption
We must find the power to cry our last goodbyes

We have found a reason
To keep holding on for one more day
All we know is crumbling to the ground
But I have faith
Someday we will collect our fears
And throw’em all away

(We won’t give up
We’ll keep fighting ‘till the end of times
The skies are on fire
The world is crumbling before our eyes
But we’re alive)

Beneath the wings of destruction
We must find a way to create a better life
And in our souls of corruption
We must find the power to cry our last goodbyes
7. About Life and Its Ending (5:00)
I have seen all of your fears
And I wrote them in my mind
I’m calculating the answers
Abstracting the concept of being alive

What’s the meaning of a lifetime
(How could I’ve been so blind?)
To someone who foresaw the future
(But now I see it all)
And patiently awaits for something
(And patiently I wait for something)
That the whole human kind is afraid of?

The knowledge of the centuries
And the understanding of the universe
Are locked far away inside myself
Hiding inside my deepest shell

Every time I get a little closer
It struggles to come out
And when it finally happens
A new existence will rise as old lies fall

It was about life
When I took my first step into infinity
And now it doesn’t matter what I’m pretending
All my thoughts are about life and its ending
8. Phoenix (7:08)
Now the glory days aregone
The claws of fear are dragging us
Into an abyss of pain
Our pride and joy forever thrown away

Hard to forget who we were
For our story lives on
In the tales of those who dreamed
Of someday being like us

(We went too far)
The chains of pleasure have bound our hearts
(Became too great)
Loss have tore our worlds apart

Like a phoenix she will rise again
Like a star upon your face
Shining over the sadness
Lightning upon the ashes of our disgrace
She will rise, over the sky
Like the burning fire of agony within

Now I see what they meant
A message of hope
(This is what they sent)
Find the key to the chains
And free your hollow hearts again
(You’ll be free again)

She is not a person
A riddle of elder men
(Wisdom, courage and cure)
Wisdom, courage and cure
The firebird is those who are pure

(To heal the wounds)
The star in the prophecy is innocence
(The key to all locks)
The very meaning of existence

Times of wise
Become an age of disguise
Sages foresaw our fate
In the prophecy they say

Like a phoenix she will rise again
Like a star upon your face
Shining over the sadness
Lightning upon the ashes of our disgrace
She will rise, over the sky
Like the burning fire of agony within

Now I realize we are all doomed
The story shall not end the way I presumed
Pure-hearted can’t be found anyway
Forever cry for the faded innocence we may
No matter how we try things won’t be like before
All that we can do now is to listen to the prophecy once more
9. Zero Days (5:14)
The first of its kind
In secrecy has been designed
Carefully built to destroy
Without trace, with no sign
Thousands of lines of code
A new form of power unfolds
Cruelly lurking inside
Infecting, will grow

(There’s gonna be a day that you will know
There is a weapon entirely made of code)
It’s gonna rule the lives of men

Life will never be the same
(It’s the threat of our time)
The danger unseen
The most clever scheme
Lies dormant within
Our securities are failing
(As we face the other side)
We can’t blame no one
For what they have done
So sad they found the gaps
The zero days

How did they make us so blind
Fomenting a new form of crime
One that could never be caught
Supported by lies

Millions of lives in their hands
So weak to this evil they send
Open to be redesigned
Making warfare a trend

Life will never be the same
(It’s the threat of our time)
The danger unseen
The most clever scheme
Lies dormant within
Our securities are failing
(As we face the other side)
We can’t blame no one
For what they have done
So sad they found the gaps
The zero days

Hear my call
We want you all
Knights of the digital nation
Forgotten souls
The system will blow
Show us the road to salvation

Life will never be the same
(It’s the threat of our time)
The danger unseen
The most clever scheme
Lies dormant within
Our securities are failing
(As we face the other side)
We can’t blame no one
For what they have done
So sad they found the gaps
The zero days
10. Alone (4:50)
Blinding, deafening, silence
Surrounding all there is
Throat choking memories
Impossible to breathe in
Life fades in solid eyes
That can no longer cry
Hands reach out in darkness
An attempt to grasp in vain
The more I try to hold on to it
The more it goes away

See your face through this darkened shroud of your own
See the blood staining every road that we walk on
All that we have gained doesn’t matter anymore
In this fading time of silent cries I can realize
Though we’ve got so far holding on to what we are
In the end I’m just...alone
Dark replaces time
In a quiet spinning flight
In a rush of clarity
An alluring path of light
All seem to crumble down
Consciousness going round and round

The masquerade you’ve always worn
Is cracked and filled with pain
I’m sorry for the times I’ve been
Much less than you could gain
I’m just alone
I die alone
11. The Grand Disguise (23:41)
The morning star shined for the first time
Bringing life-force into the earth
By the will of the one, the place of human’s birth
Zealous hands and wings of light
Looking after his sons in all their might
Unaware of the one who walks behind
Secretly threatening the creation divine

(But) the creator’s eye cannot be deceived
Punishment was set on he who did not believe

Lightning flashes across the sky
Spears clash thundering deafly
Warriors of God flying high
Fiercely fighting the unholy might
Screaming and laughing
Striking and slashing
Lucifer and his corrupted birds of evil
Heavens trembling
Light prevails
Ban him forever with his evil horde
Never to enter again the home of the lord

Damned by God and tortured by the angels
Banished from paradise
In misery I lay planning my disguise
Underground silently you will live
Foolish thoughts of yours, I’ll destroy what you conceived
Destroy it you cannot, you are just one man
Although his wings are broken this one man will rise again
Into the fire pit I fall
Dark wings will grow and wounds will heal
At the end of the torment within
Humans will succumb in sin
The pain of fire shall pass

Rise from your torpor legions of darkness
Banished with me you have been
And now by my hand you are more
To every human on earth a demon to corrupt
Now spread your wings and fly
Make them my slaves, make my fire burn high

Once there was a place where people lived in harmony
But then something happened, corruption and tyranny
Chaos and war raging from the inside
People being killed by the rising tide
Consuming our planet, covered suicide
Life is a gift from above and here we are willing to die

Corrupted by evil, blind monsters we remain
Trying to make things better we’ll all die in vain
Fortresses of stone fall into rivers of blood
Corpses all around, we were abandoned by our God
Deceived by the fallen angel, seduced by his sins
We are all devils disguised under animal skins

Together we criy for we were not prepared
Menace of one, all the damage he have done
Surrounded by darkness his servants they’ve become
Our children they once were but not anymore
Now humans are just animals pretending to be gods
Look to all the pain that we have caused
Look to all the deaths in the name of God
Castles and machines, giants of metal and stone
Just symbols of power of the ones in the thrones
Moving their nations like pieces on a chess board
They simply can’t see they are puppets among the devil’s horde
Why do you cry wings of power?
Despise for the creatures you put on the earth

Suffering through ages finally comes the hour
A new age will come, the good shall have rebirth
House of demons, the earth is my domain
Before the sunrise you were the angel of light
The rulers of mankind, my slaves they will remain:
Bringing back the pureness, we won’t abandon this fight

So here we are
Standing on the edge of existence
Bound to an uncertain fate
At the brink of the judgement day
Shall we go on?
I feel we’ve crossed the line
Has he abandoned mankind?
Can you feel the winds of change?
Can you feel the fire of rage?
Do you remember the peace we’ve been evading?
Struggling through this battle my faith is slowly fading

Here we stand at the edge of time
Where no one can hear our cries
We have failed our own existence
We’ll forever be forged in lies
