1. Reminiscence (1:30)
2. A Warning and a Dream (6:19)
A child nurtured by stories of fantasy and splendour
Growing up with images of old tales and wonders in his heart
He spent not a single night without a lasting dream
He spent not a single day without walking under the trees

“Don’t go where the trees are dead and the devil dwells,
He’ll seize your heart if you see his grey eye”

Innocence faded in time, overcome with blinding fear
All fairy tales vanished and with them my youth
For I was that child that used to rejoice in nightly dreams
Now nearly all dreams are gone, all gone but one…
He’ll seize your heart if you see his grey eye”

Surrounded by lifeless trees with no sun in the sky
I found myself running in a vast field of silence
Impending night approaching above the heavy mist
In a second all turn red, then I wake up filled with dread

Sleep tight... and don’t be scared. It’s ok not to remember. Your brother is playing with angels now... just don’t go there again.

“Don’t walk the devil’s path, he laughs while children cry,
He will play with your head if you see his grey eye”
A warning right before bed my father used to say…
That warning right before bed my father used to say…

In hours of darkness vile words were spoken,
Was it a warning or was it a threat?
3. The Lake (5:58)
Walking in a shadowy forest, not too far away from home
In a place of nostalgic memories, a place of a childhood long lost
I came here looking for an answer and a link to that which I can’t see

Under the sun’s declining light, I behold the entrance to unreality
Intriguing pathway of my dreams, only darkness lies beyond
Far ahead a foggy shadow beacons and I follow enticed by its gesture

Across a hall of dead trees, crooked branches writhe in silent pain
From the ground and rotten roots a cold mist ascend piercing my skin
Suddenly the silence breaks, by a yell and then a rising dreadful tune

Now I see the lake, adorned with unearthly silver glare
And right above, the chanting shadows dance…
And I see, all of those shadows have a face,
And right above, holding hands, the children dance in mid air…

Slashed and wounded limbs, in ragged and stained clothes they sing
The lake slowly comes alive, like playing by their evil tune
Pallid bloody faces, in their maddening grins there’s a secret concealed
Water swirls below their dancing circle, like playing by their evil tune
4. In the Footsteps of Fear (1:39)
5. Going Home (4:53)
6. Nightmare (5:41)
My eyes are open to a world never seen
An unnatural force is calling me
I have yielded all control of my body
I have surrendered my thoughts to evil

Malevolent strength… repressing my heart

Defenceless, unaware of his impending death
My own flesh, my son… shall dream no more

No emotion, no restraints, no regrets
As I grab the inherited knife of sin
This night the silvery lake will dance
And feed from the pain of my own heir

Devouring madness… compelling need to kill

Defenceless, and awoken by my touch
My own flesh, my son shall breathe no more

Tonight the lake will come alive again
I go there to play with my child hand in hand
Running through the hall of the dead
Where silence remains eternally broken

No need to struggle my sweet child
Let all the pain ooze out from your body
Each drop of blood eases my hunger
Each wound in your skin is blissfully deep

Here, were children sing to the devil
Water taste the flesh that’s about to die
Screams of joy and agony unite
The grey eye has turned red tonight

You no longer breathe, but your dark shadow I can see
Right above the lake, holding hands with the dead
All of you I can see, staring at me with an evil grin
Right above the lake, adorned with unearthly ruby glare
7. In the Asylum (4:29)
Surrounded by blank walls in an empty room
Day after day I choke in sorrow and terror
Pointlessly trying to evade nightmares in my sleep
Pointlessly trying to evade the truth behind it all

Screaming to subdue the chanting voices of the dead
I evoke ecollections of my youth revealing more pain
I remember the day when I first saw the grey eye
I remember that day when I walked the devil’s path

Turbid hypnotising water, almost alive, invited me to see…
I heard the shrieks of a child in pain, someone dear to me...
Then I saw a man sinking a knife into my brother’s chest
My father was that man, stabbing like a maniac over and over again

From that day my destiny was to feed the grey eye with blood
From that day I was bound to return to the Devil’s Playground
8. Unending Sorrow (4:41)
9. The Grove (3:42)
10. Beethoven 7th Symphony - Allegretto (4:42)
11. Dies Irae (1:46)
Dies irae
Dies illa
Solvet saeclum en favilla
Teste davidcum sybilla

Quantus tremor est futurus
Quando judex est venturus
Cunta stricte discus surus

Dies irae
Dies illa
Solvet saeclum en favilla
Teste davidcum sybilla

Quantus tremor est futurus
Quando judex est venturus
Cuncta stricte discus surus

Quantus tre-e-mo-or e-est fu-u-turus
Dies irae, Dies illa
Quantus tre-e-mo-or e-est fu-u-turus
Dies irae, Dies illa
Quantus tre-e-mo-or e-est fu-u-turus
Quando judex est venturus
Cuncta stricte discus surus

Cuncta stricte
Stricte discus surus
Cuncta stricte
Stricte discus surus
