1. The Beginning and the End (0:48)
2. Promise Me (3:31)
Who do you see, when you look into these eyes.
Yet another lost person, just fighting for your air?
Why would you care, I'm still worthless to you,
just another expendable toy in your game!

Stay here with me, it's the only thing I need now.
Hold me till I sleep, if you can't hold forever.
Hear me when I plead, I can't ask you again now.
Stay here tonight, if it's the only thing that you'll promise me.

Nobody'd know, if I wouldn't come home.
There's no light in my window, no warmth in my bed.
So it's come to this, we're so helpless and hurt.
If this silence is taking us, what will be left then?

Stay here with me, it's the only thing I need now.
Hold me till I sleep, if you can't hold forever.
Hear me when I plead, I can't ask you again now.
Stay here tonight, if it's the only thing that you'll promise me.

It's only words, but this promise I'll keep,
that someday we'll be able to breathe again.
It's only words, but a promise I'll keep,
that someday we'll be able to live, again.

Stay here with me, it's the only thing I need now.
Hold me till I sleep, if you can't hold forever.
Hear me when I plead, I can't ask you again now.
Stay here tonight, if it's the only thing that you'll promise me.
3. We'll be There (4:38)
Do you remember when we could face each day as if it was our last?
It hurts to see, that we're so far apart now.

Some day we will meet again and salute at the end of time.
Until then, we will wait for a new dawn.

We are standing stronger here but without you,
but someday we'll be there.
So promise me, to be insincere when someone questions you,
so someday we will be there too.

Here, where the air is still clear, when the world was still new to us.
These feelings fade away, is this it or have I died?
All I know, it's not for me, because I just want to go home.

We are, standing stronger here but without you,
but someday we'll be there
so promise me, to be insincere when someone questions you.
So someday we'll be there too.

And when the dust has settled and our eyes have grown weary to this scene,
I'll end it all, point blank to be sure.

Some day we will meet again and salute at the end of time.
Until then, we will to wait for a new dawn.

They are, standing stronger there but without pain and fear,
when they know it's over.

We are, standing stronger here but without you,
but someday we'll be there.
Promise me, that you'll meet up with us when you've realized your fears,
so someday we'll be there too.
4. The One Behind the Mirror (3:56)
Trembling hands will tell the truth your silver tongue left out.
You should know that there's no reason for this.
Now, I won't lie, I wonder why you think that I could trust you
after what you've done when all you do is hurt us more.

Hiding behind your mirror.

Hold on, why are you still lingering in what might have been the past!
You know, deep inside you I'm your only friend,
trough thick and thin we've been ...and I can hurt you easily!

Victims of a circumstance, we fight, we crawl, we scratch we fall
and nothing here, will ever budge an inch more.
Well, now you know, you're never whole,
there's always something missing that we never see
and all we do is hurt ourselves more.

Hiding behind our mirror.

Hold on, why are you still lingering in what might have been the past!
You know, deep inside you I'm your only friend,
through thick and thin we've been ...and I can hurt you easily!
5. Thin White Lines (5:25)
Feeding a hole with green pills and false hope.
Running from shadows while blocking the sun.
Now I can see why you're always afraid.
Now, I can see, red burn marks on your chest.

When you can see it, but you can't feel it, you won't know what is real.
Crying is easy, give up and feed me, pills won't help you this time.

So you see, when we're running from our past, we're just running in circles.
Brake your own mirrors. Kill the noise; drawing your own thin white lines.

Block out the cruel world, seal off your windows.
Sleep with a gun in your hand.

When we are running from our past, we're just running in circles.
Brake, your own mirrors. Kill the noise; drawing your own thin white lines.

Spinning in my head a carousel of noise and pain.
Headaches come I'm blacking out and all I hear is you,
burning what is left of my life.

When we're running from our past, we're just running in circles.
Brake, your own mirrors, kill the noise. Drawing your own thin white lines
6. In the End (4:59)
Come, step in the fire.
Step in the fire that's been burning down your house.
See, see all the faces.
See all the people that's been hurting you in your life.

Fight on remember what I said, stand tall,
don't let them take you away.
There's so much more to this than words,
so shut your mouth and listen!

In the end you're lonely, fighting for your only chance.
In the end we're only, trying to close an open case.
In the end you're fallen, clinging to your only hope.
In the end we're only, trying to find our way back home.

Why, don't you believe me?
Why cant you feel it in your heart that it is gone?
You, you don't even know me!
You don't even know me well enough to judge me now!

Fight on remember what I said, stand tall,
don't let them take you away.
There's so much more to this than words,
so shut the fuck up, listen!

In the end you're lonely, fighting for your only chance.
In the end we're only, trying to close an open case.
In the end you're fallen, clinging to your only hope.
In the end we're only, trying to find our way back home.

When you are all alone and the fire's burned out.
Back where it all began, all these people standing on,
at the edge of their lives.

Is there anything, anything you'd fight for?
Break through all of your fears, all these wasted tears
piercing trough like a needle in my heart.

In the end we're only, trying to stay above the ground.
In the end we're lonely, trying to find what can't be found.

In the end you're lonely, fighting for your only chance.
In the end we're only, trying to close an open case.
In the end you're fallen, clinging to your only hope.
In the end we're only, trying to find our way back home
7. Deadweight (5:16)
Can you tell me, why the rats have fled the ship?
So, do you feel it, it's sinking in my chest.
Those two more lies won't make one truth.
You tell yourself what you will, but still I wonder...

...has it come to this?
Fighting for wings when we're chained to the ground.
No one will care, if we stay here,
when we're just chained to our deadweight and only going on down.

I hate to say this, but you're completely out of your mind.
You can't deny this, as the truth is seen in your eyes.
Those two more lies wont make one truth.
You tell yourself what you will, but still I wonder...

...has it come to this?
Fighting for wings when we're chained to the ground.
No one will care if we stay here,
when we're just chained to our deadweight and only going on down.

So when you've cast your vote and presented your own cause,
but we're still stuck in the same sinking boat.
I could promise you the moon and the stars but they've been pledged.
All I have is my world, is it enough?

(Guitar solo: Tuukka Nurmi-Aro)

Has it's come to this?
Fighting for wings when we're chained to the ground.
No one will care if we stay here,
when we're just chained to our deadweight and only going down.
8. Farewell To Arms (4:34)
I have no choice, he was my only hope.
A surgeon need both his arms, not just one!
So you see my, transplanted grotesqueness stayed, so did I.
I live only for the day I could work with a sucessfull transplant to my body.
That is why I stay.

Just calm myself and take a deep breath, all hope's not lost.
The fear in my head is just wearing down my heart.
Soon I'll drop the gun, farewell to arms... farewell.

I'll take you there, show you this emptiness and pain!
Then you'll know, what you have brought upon yourself!
You're not so brave when fallen from your high pedestal.

You're not so strong when both of your arms have broken off.
I see through your lies, you know you're standing on sinking ground.
I'll take you there, show you this emptiness and pain!
Then you'll know, what you have brought upon yourself!

I'll take you there, show you this emptiness and pain!
Then you'll know, what you have brought upon yourself!
You're not so brave when fallen from your high pedestal
9. The Only Way Out is Through (4:29)
Don't lock your doors then, accept all the challengers.
They said you couldn't, they were lying out of fear.
Lead a horse to water and make it drink by force.
If he won't hold your hand you will hold him by his throat all through.

If you're going through hell, keep going, the only way out is through.
Seize the day by the throat 'cause, nothing to lose means all to gain.

When life's getting tough it just means God is afraid of your progress.
Bring a knife to a gunfight and stab them while they're laughing.
Lead a horse to the water and make it drink by force.
If he won't hold your hand you will hold him by his throat.

If you're going through hell, keep going, the only way out is through.
Seize the day by the throat 'cause, nothing to lose means all to gain.

I live. Again.

You taught me hate. I'll teach you fear.
The only way out is through this trough it all.

If you're going through hell, keep going, the only way out is through.
Seize the day by the throat 'cause, nothing to lose means all to gain.

Better die on your feet than to live on your knees.
Climb the highest mountain, punch your God in the face.
Don't you worry about him, let him worry about you.

They're all dead they just don't know it yet.
They're all dead they just don't know it yet.

If you're going through hell, keep going, the only way out is through.
Seize the day by the throat 'cause, nothing to lose means nothing all to gain.
10. Walls are Whispering (4:33)
"So it's come to this?" I said to you, again.
Silver tounges and itching lungs, the "perfect ones".

The lies, deceit, quiet whispering.
Fall down, defeat, don't want part of it!
I try, to sleep but the walls are whispering.

Why, cant you hear these voices?
Truths that remain unspoken.
Stay, for a while, I cannot sleep,
while these walls are whispering.

Truth be told I don't know what is real anymore.
The lack of sleep is slowly eating me, more and more.
The lies, deceit, quiet whispering.
Fall down, defeat, don't want part of it!
I try to sleep but the walls are whispering.

Why can't you hear these voices?
Truths that remain unspoken.
Stay, for a while, I cannot sleep,
while these walls are whispering.

Mary had a little lamb, whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go.

Why can't you hear these voices?
Truths that remain unspoken.
Stay, for a while, I cannot sleep,
while these walls are whispering.
11. Close the Door (3:14)
Too often said, so don't know if you believe me.
But still I'll try, to reconcile, can't just walk away.
Though in the end you can't be shifting the blame back and fourth.

I close the door behind a life once again.
I'll take the blame and turn the page to a new day.

Freed from all the pain, but I will never be the same.
These are the last of my days left here.

I close the door behind a life once again.
I'll take the blame and turn the page to a new day.
I close the door behind a life once again.
I'll take the blame and turn the page to a new day
12. Nothing to Regret (4:44)
Take, take your best shot. Punch some holes into my words.
Hope you'll break your fist.
Then we can agree, that we disagree and all this will end in tears.

Soon, you'll release the wolves, feed me to the worms.
This fight is on, so raise your arms and...

...I will bring you down! Stand my ground this time!
Call me what you will, but I've got nothing to regret!
See through your hurtful lies, they wont mean a thing.
But I wont forget, as I've got nothing to regret!

Oh, you got your pain but no bullet wounds to show.
So who is to blame?

Soon, you'll release the wolves, feed me to the worms.
This fight is on, so raise your arms and...

...I will bring you down! Stand my ground this time!
Call me what you will, but I've got nothing to regret!
See through your hurtful lies, they wont mean a thing.
But I wont forget, as I've got nothing to regret!

Raise up your guns, reload again,
empty your clip inside my dead heart.
Now see if I care, if i just budge an inch for you.
You, you took my life, you took it all,
kill me before I change my mind.
It wont hurt so bad if you don't love me!

(Guitar solo: Tuukka Nurmi-Aro)

High praises for the lost,
see through your facade,
call you what you are.

Don't you have the guts? So, will you go through with this?
See, now just as I thought, I am stronger than you so raise up your arms.
Now you're the one that's scared, knowing what will come.
Tables turn around, this time.

I will bring you down! Stand my ground this time!
Call me what you will, but I've got nothing to regret!
See through your hurtful lies, they wont mean a thing!
But I wont forget, as I've got nothing to regret!
13. Drag me Down to Hell (4:00)
I knew you'd stab my back if you just had the chance.
I knew you'd try to twist my arm off if you'd have the strength.
So push, your nails! You'd love to lick my tears!
I'll cry, I'll cry a river full of blood!

The final resolution!

The judgement bell, all wishing well, you'll have to drag me down to hell!
No turning back, no matter of fact, I'll have to take you with me!
No lies to tell, no soul to sell, you'll have to drag me down to hell!
Still swinging free down from a tree, you'll have to cut me down then!

It's way to early to say prayers for the dead.
You have apparently a head-start you smiling sack of shit.

So push, your nails! You'd love to lick my tears!
I'll cry, I'll cry a river full of blood!

The final resolution!

The judgement bell, all wishing well, you'll have to drag me down to hell!
No turning back, to matter of fact, I'lll have to take you with me!
No lies to tell, no soul to sell, you'll have to drag me down to hell!
Still swinging free, down from a tree, you'll have to cut me down then!

See, my pretty please, with no more arms how can you clap, the devils tune?
Your feet are numb, your eyes are not where they should be,
so how can you see where you are? Feel anything when I am standing on...

(Guitar solo: Antti Leskinen)

The final resolution!

The judgement bell, all wishing well, you'll have to drag me down to hell!
No turning back, to matter of fact, I'll have to take you with me!
No lies to tell, no soul to sell, you'll have to drag me down to hell!
Still swinging free down from a tree, you'll have to cut me down then!
14. Who are You Talking to? (3:55)
15. River Runs Deep (7:38)
Can you remember the promise you made?
Swore you would hold on, whatever you see.

Someday we will be free from all this silence
and while we are waiting the river runs deep.

When I needed you in my life you walked on.
Understand, I cant just forgive anymore.

Someday we will be free from all this silence
and while we are waiting the river runs deep.

Holding on to my own truth,
there is more than what you may see here.

(Guitar solo: Jonas Eriksson)

Someday we will be free from all this silence,
and while we are waiting the river runs deep.
Someday we will be free from all this silence,
and while we are waiting the river runs deep.
