1. Checkmate (5:51)
Sacrifice has no hope
Has the system failed?
Cities and countries destroyed
A complete surprise
God has been blinded forever
For the love of Heaven, forgive them
Do not believe in words
No more faith

Running through the swamps
Living days without hope and silence
Trying to stay alive
Someone chose how to come to our end
Silent darkness will invade the world
System could corrupt my head
Searching for salvation

There's no reason for madness
We live like prisoners
Suffering and in agony
Dream of flying abroad
where there are no rules imposed
I'm searching a bright new soul

Often there are no winners
We're just pieces inside this game
Every move, every gambit, aims only to rust my soul
Silent darkness will invade the world
Searching for salvation

There's no reason for madness
We live like prisoners
Suffering and in agony
Dream of flying abroad
where there are no rules imposed
I'm waiting the checkmate
2. River's Edge (James Labrie Cover) (6:48)
Cannot forget how so far
I lost my target sinking here
Boring moments filled my life
I tried to find mistakes

My mind is haunted by demons
Evil revolves around me
I stop understanding
I'm asking for help, but the arrival is far away
Let me live in this dark corner
I sleep in silent shades
(Shades! - x8)

Fighting the river
It's suffering I feel
The shape of your hand is engraved in the heart
Just free me from my past, a living death

A constant struggle I'm living inside my head
I can't bear this - can you hear this desperate cry?
Covering distance, but far from my home I am
From the depths are coming beasts hunting my hope
Never ending this growing fear
God, every feeling is just a dream
Remember to learn, remember this soul
Remember everything, my friend

Fighting the river
It's suffering I feel
The shape of your hand is engraved inside my heart
Erase my past
Fighting the river (Fighting the river)
It's suffering I feel (Suffering I feel)
The shape of your hand is engraved inside my heart
Erase my past (Erase my past!)
3. If (3:48)
I can feel down the streets
You left silence by my side
The winter I see
is the same winter I feel
Everything we did
Everything we felt

Waking up night after night
Searching for you inside our bed
Hoping to find your hand again
or just your hair to stroke
Everything we did
Everything we felt

(Forgive me)
If only time could run back now
(Forget me)
Facing the adverse wind of certain fate
I would remain in your arms one last time still

I read again those black words
They're like thorns around my heart
I will remain here to feel the pain again
Everything we did
Everything we felt

(Forgive me)
If only time could run back now
(Forget me)
Facing the adverse wind of certain fate
I would remain in your arms one last time
(Forgive me)
I would remain in your arms one last time

(Forgive me)
If only time could run back now
(Forget me)
Facing the adverse wind of certain fate
I would remain in your arms one last time
One last time (x2)
4. The Shelter (7:52)
They wait for me, standing apart
Wearing a white-dyed coat
Looks like a trial by jury
Have I been charged by all of them?

A woman from the background
tries to speak some words,
and step by step,
that whisper comes into my ears:
"Follow me, and then you'll see
it's just a reverie"
Just a reverie!

Sometimes we feel unsure
that life will reserve the best for us,
and all our waking dreams are just a memory
It's up to us to build up
our home, our shelter and our church
A hot lap where I can feel welcome back

Nothing never changes
unless you understand

Out there, no rope is near
that you can hang on to help yourself
A scissors' army is ready to slash the rest
Restive and never peaceful
You just don't like your state of mind
I'll be the honey that will sweeten a sleepless night

I will introduce you into my world
Don't be scared, believe me
You can be, you can be just as you are
Follow me down

Welcome into my shelter
See how stars are brighter from here
Lights won't fade during darkness,
and my hand will hurt, but won't let you go
(x2)
5. Pillars Of Sand (9:09)
I remember the time when I was only a number for them
Mishandled, I felt like I was just a pawl in the big machine
I remember that no one was able to speak to me properly
I remember how sad it was to wake up every morning
I'll live by myself

"Don't be afraid" I said
Just a lie to carry on
They teach me useless things
Numbers reveal the real
I want to escape from this golden cage

The cross and his guest I am
You've got no time to understand
We're balanced on pillars of sand
Alone we are until the end
Higher, lower, my position is nowhere
Bear my sins and love me
beyond my heart and soul

Years I passed among your friends
just because our blood was the same
Sister, I can't deny they helped me
until I found my love
Alicia, embrace me
Make me feel loved
Everything was so meaningless
I can see how to reach the intersection to infinity
I searched all life long

Can't lose time, I feel hypnotized
I'll decipher the message they sent
From another world here to me
In the south empire I rule
I belong to God

Hidden from wife, hidden from sons
Working with codes they don't know
Thoughts are racing fast
from the Olympus to the Earth
"Hail the Antarctic Emperor!"

I'll walk on you all, I like to feel your heartbeat
I know you fear me and I know you're right
...or am I wrong?

The cross and his guest I am
You've got no time to understand
We're balanced on pillars of sand
Alone we are until the end
Higher, lower, my position is nowhere
Bear my sins and love me
beyond my heart and soul
6. October 1917 (3:34)
Dark fields and dreams that frighten all
Now listen!
We all want to change our life
We all want to make a common good
That's real

I came to light, I just followed a dream
Confessed my ideals
The reasons are passing forever
Keep them in your heart

I felt in my soul a breath of fear
like scared man
Everyone is equal here
Everyone, just follow me

I live a lie inside this fence
I hope I will go on
Walking out of here with my feet
"Four legs good, two legs are bad"
With this maxim, follow him up there
I feel I'm folding now
7. Behind The Curtain (8:46)
Now follow me, son of the Pig
Trust me, I'll guide you and set you free

Make a stand
There is no evidence about my future
Old Major spoke,
sharing with us a dream and "Beasts of England"

Here again
I can't take anymore
Face on the ground
I'm saving our liberty
Animalism philosophy
I've got my brand-new faith

I live a lie inside this fence
I hope I will go on
Walking out of here with my feet
"Four legs good, two legs are bad"
With this maxim, follow me up there
You won't wear clothes,
you won't sleep in a bed,
and sorrows won't drown
You won't hurt him
Each one of you comply with the law
Now drop the curtain

I'm humanized
I'm able to walk on my hind legs
I'm made of "still"

I live a lie inside this fence
I hope I will go on
Walking out of here with my feet
"Four legs good, two legs bad" (x2)
With this maxim, follow me up there
Four legs good, two legs bad
Four legs good, two legs bad...two legs better!
You'll submit to me (x2)
8. Aftermath (16:43)
"Shock troops, take your positions."

I recall how you gazed at me,
telling me about love and endless dreams
I want to embrace him
Tonight, these thoughts are falling into lakes of tears
Tonight, who's crying?

The sunlight, clouds far away
Am I saying goodbye to a world that I can't live in?
The sunlight comes, clouds far away
Am I saying farewell to this world I cannot live in?

The dream is far, the pain is now
I want to know why humankind's so cruel
Dishonest, temperamental
Enjoy the light through a dark shroud of war

I remember times when it all began
Saw my back and then my memory stopped the time
Stopped the time between you and eternity, my dear
My dear, I'm waiting here

Changing the rules as they please, like a pawn
You're just moved and get killed by checkmate
Aren't you scared you're forgetting forever
the shape of my lips?
Oh my God, I just can't seem to trust you
Did you forget one of your sons?
I don't think it's all that I deserve
Just waiting for the aftermath
How much time do I have to wait
to feel your love surrounding me again?

You can't escape once you're inside this twisted game
Running in circles, you'll be put back in again
That night my hopes were there, deep in that lake of tears
Tonight they are here, someday you'll be with me

At peace with this whole world now
Is it real or is it just an illusion?
I read the paper's headline
They say that this war will come to an end
The aftermath is coming
The afterglow this morning
became a precious sunrise
Yet my "farewell" now is a "goodbye"

“Ground troops, report to your positions.
Team Charlie to Commander: we're approaching the building.
Is the target in sight? Affirmative.
Team Beta to Commander: we reached the rooftop.
Commander to Team Beta:
beware of that man with the white suit. We'll fix him.
Commander to all troops: we are near the resolution.
This is the chance we waited for a long time.
Infiltrate into the building. Head into the main room.
You know what to do after that. Good luck. Roger."

Nothing's true what I believed
They gave me just some sedatives
Looking through the looking glass
Today, I saw another me

The sunlight comes, clouds far away
Am I saying farewell to this world I cannot live in?
The sunlight comes, clouds far away
Am I saying farewell to a world that I can't live in?

How can I sleep peaceful at night if you're not here?
How can I live wasting my time without you?
Did I do everything I could do to have you here beside me?
Did I respect enough all blessings on my path?

I am at peace with this world,
or was it all an illusion?
I read the paper's headline
They said the war would be over

Will I now reach that finishing line I saw a long, long time ago?
And understand that in the end it all was staged?

Come back here
Come back, my love
Begging God 'cause I need him now
The aftermath will come here
The afterglow disappear
And my "goodbye" will be a "welcome back"

I see my life now as a long, steep climb
I'm walking barefoot, all the flakes are inside
I'll be here weaving this web for you, my love
I'm looking forward to seeing you again
The darker our night is, the closer to daylight we are
The darker our night, the closer to daylight we are
