1. The Deep & the Dark (4:08)
Shut the light, call the night, bring my safety back
Are they gone, I hear none, as all fades to black
But your hands on my shoulder’s calming me down

Build a wall, start a war, here they come for me
Grab the sword, come on board, face my enemy
But you silence all their cries when you speak your loving words

Be my sunrise
Redemption lies in your eyes!

You are my antidote when the waves of doubts rush in
As I drown in my memories the darkness creeps in

Losing faith on my battleground
The shadows leave their mark
Your light brings me back from the deep and the dark

Take my hand, make a stand, and then hold your breath
See what comes, see what runs, in the face of death
How is it that you never seem to worry?

In the end, I must bend, and then hold or break
Kneel to pray, come what may, when my soul’s at stake
And you loosen all the knots with a smile on your face

In this rat race
The enemy wears my face!

You are my antidote when the waves of doubts rush in
As I drown in my memories the darkness creeps in

Losing faith on my battleground
The shadows leave their mark
Your light brings me back from the deep and the dark

Come take my hand, take my heart
Keep me safe, keep me warm
They take my pride, take this life
But they won’t take my soul!

You are my antidote when the waves of doubts rush in
As I drown in my memories the darkness creeps in

Losing faith when I look around
Madness leaves a mark
Brings death to your doorway
The deep and the dark
2. Return to Lemuria (4:09)
When I dare close my eyes I feel the vibrant morning rise
One the shores of that dear and secret island

I’ve waited for too long
To join you where true love belongs
Let’s embark on a journey back our land

Leave the world behind
This once in a lifetime
Our compass will reveal the place where where “us” is real

Sailing the sea where legend will live
All our stories and memories are mine to believe
Walking there hand in hand
As kings of our own land
Our return to Lemuria

Until the day has come I wish to stay with you alone
But I dread that you’ll leave without a warning

I hear your words my dear, inside I share this deepest fear
But we know there will dawn a darker morning

Leave the world behind
This once in a lifetime
Our compass will reveal the place where where “us” is real

Sailing the sea where legend will live
All our stories and memories are mine to believe
Walking there hand in hand
As kings of our own land
Our return to Lemuria...

Leave the world behind
This once in a lifetime
Our compass will reveal the place where where “us” is real

Sailing the sea where legend will live
All our stories and memories are mine to believe
Walking there hand in hand
As kings of our own land
Our return to Lemuria...

Holding you in my heart as we sail apart
End the dream called Lemuria...
3. Ritual Night (3:59)
Solitude
I consign my energy so
Gratitude
May come fill my soul

Certitudes
No theories of reason can
Dedicate the rules
Of this mystic world

As I call on the winds
On the heart of the trees
On the waves of the seas

I will welcome the love that I feel
Banish the shadows and fears
Break through the circles of hate that poison the hearts
Moonlight is bright on ritual night

Sacrifice
All my ego and self-focus
Purify
Intentions of my soul

Paralyzed
By a world that wants us all
To push aside
The true heart inside

As I call on the winds
On the heart of the trees
On the waves of the seas

I will welcome the love that I feel
Banish the shadows and fears
Break through the circles of hate that poison the hearts
Moonlight is bright on ritual night

Some might pray to the gods
Some be loading their guns
I confess that my only wish is love to protect those I care for

Oh...

I will welcome the love that I feel
Banish the shadows and fears
Break through the circles of hate that poison the hearts
Moonlight is bright

Sun will set and moon will rise, eternal cycle of life
Men must choose for good on which side to stand
As the Earth won’t spare us when the end will come
4. The Silent Mutiny (3:45)
You’ve been misguided and you’ve been deceived
Truth was not always quite what you believed
Trust has made fools out of great men before
Now we will even the score

Come on board our ship
Feel the breeze that is cleansing your heart and your soul
We will set you free

Run away, from the lies
From their truth that blinds your eyes
Break the chains, spark the fire in your mind

Sing our song, join the fight
As we stand for what is right
Be the change you want to see today
Join the Silent Mutiny!

We are the rebels we think for ourselves
Some men can rule but no men shall be slaves
A free heart, a free mind is changing the game
The world shall never be the same

Come taste our freedom!

Run away, from the lies
From their truth that blinds your eyes
Break the chains, spark the fire in your mind

Sing our song, join the fight
As we stand for what is right
Be the change you want to see today
Join the Silent Mutiny!

For power and money, the higher the walls
The tyrants would build at our doors
For balance and justice, we hope for a chance
Someday we’ll all know it lies in our hands

Come on board our ship
Feel the breeze that is cleansing your heart and your soul
We will set you free

Run away, from the lies
From their truth that blinds your eyes
Break the chains, spark the fire in your mind

Sing our song, join the fight
As we stand for what is right
Be the change you want to see today
Join the Silent Mutiny!
5. Book of Nature (5:21)
I try not to confine
My knowledge and my mind
Answers are mine to find
Between all unspoken lines

People kneeled
Despots guiding
Secrets sealed
They keep hiding
Time to set sails, find the truth by ourselves

We can’t deny!
Power leads us to play
Breaking lives on the way!

Conquer hearts and souls of wanderers
And the world is a playground
Conjure ghosts of ancient travelers
May the light of their wisdom shine all around

I came realize
It was all before my eyes
Truth is lying inside
In the deep where worlds collide

Crosses raised
Eyes are closing
Voices praise
Hands are joining
Time to question, faith or resignation?

We can’t deny!
Power leads us to play
Breaking lives on the way!

Conquer hearts and souls of wanderers
And the world is a playground
Conjure ghosts of ancient travelers
May the light of their wisdom shine

Time to confess
Bloody progress
Has led our world to its fall
Book of Nature
The real adventure
Remains unknown to us all

I promise, my heart is done with wandering
I have found truth in love

Conquer hearts and souls of wanderers
And the world is a playground
Conjure ghosts of ancient travelers
May the light of their wisdom shine all around...
All around...
All around...
6. The Last Home (4:14)
Here comes one of my saddest days
A pain tomorrow won’t relieve
And I know only time is said to heal
But years will fly before I can breathe

I’ll keep on trying
But I won’t let you go

I’ll keep you safe in a secret place
Until I find my freedom
Goodbye my friend
Love will never end
You will live in my heart

Time erased so much of what you were
Though I tried to hide you deep
Gone forever – what is left for me to keep?
Joys that I cannot remember

I keep on calling
I want you to know

I’ll keep you safe in a secret place
Until I find my freedom
Goodbye my friend
Love will never end
You will live

I will try to carry on (try to carry on)
I will try to move on (try to move on)
I should try to let you go as you have before!

I’ll keep you safe in a secret place
Until I find my freedom
Goodbye my friend
Love will never end
You will live in my heart...
7. The Grand Illusion (3:42)
Love is a lie
Called me to wander
Trusted too quick in its wonders

Tempted by all the siren’s charms
Yearn for a lifetime in her arms

In your misery
Take my love as remedy

Cherishing monsters we know it too well
Trusting in their words, a pathway to hell
Games of seduction lure weaker men’s heart
Lust is not true love – the honey-tongued art

Come, take my hand, kiss my lips
Taste the promise I hold
Wild is your mind and there is no escaping at all

In my memory love is source of misery

Cherishing monsters we know it too well
Trusting in their words, a pathway to hell
Games of seduction lure weaker men’s heart
Lust is not true love – the honey-tongued art

In my fantasy love’s the only remedy

Cherishing monsters we know it too well
Trusting in their words, a pathway to hell
Games of seduction lure weaker men’s heart
Lust is not true love – the honey-tongued art
8. Dead Reckoning (3:53)
Trapped inside my dreams
I try to leave
The true world seems out of reach

Keep your banner high
Even if the tide
May never bring you back to this life

Drifting in shadows into the night
Lonely hearts are losing the fight
Let me fade on the waves
My final delight

Lost, dead reckoning
Opposing streams
Can lead my mind up to the edge

When all hope is gone
And you feel so alone
Trust upon the heaven in your heart

Drifting in shadows into the night
Lonely hearts are losing the fight
Let me fade on the waves
My final delight

Drifting in shadows into the light

Drifting in shadows into the night
Lonely hearts are losing the fight
Let me fade on the waves
My final delight
Drifting in shadows (oh in shadows) into the light (into the light)
Lonely hearts is taking the fight
Let me ride on the waves
My home is in sight
9. Words of War (3:39)
With our lives at higher tension
And fear in every heart
We close the doors of our compassion
And we are worlds apart

Frightened by the sights around us
We look for answers here
And all they give us is ignorance and fear

Let’s unbind our mind!

We must rise, with the fire in our eyes
To prevent our own demise
In the hearts that suffer
Devil’s in disguise

We must fight, to renounce the words of war
That divide us at the core
We’ll rip off the veil
The face of terror won’t prevail

In the name of their religion
The engine of their hate
They preach a God, their own illusion
With no shred of faith

Is this world they wanted?
Is this a world at all?
When joy and freedom could lead us to our fall

Let’s unbind our mind!

We must rise, with the fire in our eyes
To prevent our own demise
In the hearts that suffer
Devil’s in disguise

We must fight, to renounce the words of war
That divide us at the core
We’ll rip off the veil
The face of terror won’t prevail

We must rise, with the fire in our eyes
To prevent our own demise
In the hearts that suffer
Devil’s in disguise

We must fight, to renounce the words of war
That divide us at the core
We’ll rip off the veil
The face of terror won’t prevail
10. Prayer to the Lost (4:11)
As your cheeks have turned so pale
And your eyes have lost their shine
Something must keep you in pain
I wish I could read your mind, read your mind

Don’t let your world shrink into sadness
Don’t let the cold widen the distance
Look into your heart to restore the faith in yourself
You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful today

Would you listen to my voice
When doubts are leading you astray?
Shall life be your only choice
I wish hope to guide your way, guide your way

Don’t let your world shrink into sadness
Don’t let the cold widen the distance
Look into your heart to restore the faith in yourself
You’re beautiful, you’re beautiful today

Don’t let your world shrink into sadness (shrink into sadness)
Don’t let the cold widen the distance (widen the distance)
Look into the dark for the beauty that’s hiding
You’re not alone, you’re not alone, today...
