Darkest Hours
These frantic memories
They bring me down, tormenting peace
The darkness drowns me
I'm restless without sleep
When day breaks, I'm still awake,
I recall my mistakes

I'll be never alone, never again, never alone,
I'll be never alone, never again, never alone...

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.

I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!

Those frozen memories
Laid out for me, all I can see
The night surrounds me
Destroying harmony
What lies beneath, demising me?
I've lost my purity

I'll be never alone, never again, never alone,
I'll be never alone, never again, never alone...

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.

I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!

Under Flaming Skies
The wind is blowing
There's ashes in the air
The heat is flowing
You stare in despair

Hear the warning
The times are changing fast
The Earth is crying
With a thundering blast

Hear the ground speaking
The powers unknown, a release
The ground's speaking
The freezing past

Wheel of the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Wheel of the night
Hide from the light
The winds are burning
You're under flaming skies

The sacred fire
Is spreading, destroying all
The exploding spire
Will finally fall

Hear the ground speaking
The powers unknown, a release
The ground's speaking
The freezing past

Wheel of the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Wheel of the night
Hide from the light
The winds are burning
You're under flaming skies

Bridge

Wheel of the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Wheel of the night
Hide from the light
The winds are burning
You're under flaming skies

Wheel of the night, the skies are burning
Wheel of the night, the winds are burning
You're under flaming skies
 
 
Infernal Maze
You faded away
And woe is all that remains
And I have gone astray
My mind full of theory and states

I'm carrying a seed of insanity
A burden of faded memories

Delusion, destruction, salvation
Go on without saying

Hate in this creed
Awareness so numb this time
Underneath the skin
You're still drooling in

And what I've come to find
A state of mind
I need to find
A way to carry it

For my soul will finally be free
But first I need to bare it instead:

Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an internal game
Infernal Maze
The demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.

solo - Matias / Jens / Matias / Jens / duet

Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an internal game
Infernal Maze
The demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.

Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an internal game
Infernal Maze
The demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.

Infernal Maze
These demons, these demons,
Haunting me, Infernal Maze
Infernal Maze
Infernal Maze.
 
 
Fairness Justified
I thought I could not find
Someone who's so alike
The way you think, I feel it in my heart

It is so hard to see
What's happening to me
Two souls united that can't be apart

All these lonely nights and days
Let me start

Waiting for a light, this feeling
I have been denied, I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine, awareness purified
I make it through the night, am I dreaming?
Waiting for a sign, I've seen it
Heavenly divine, so fairness will finally be justified

If there's a past life
I know you've been all mine
You are forever the one divine

All these lonely nights and days
Let me start

Waiting for a light, this feeling
I have been denied, I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine, awareness purified
I make it through the night, am I dreaming?
Waiting for a sign, I've seen it
Heavenly divine, so fairness will finally be justified

solo - Matias

I watch you when you sleep
And listen as you breathe
I'm close to you and keep you warm

Waiting for a light, this feeling
I have been denied, I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine, awareness purified
I make it through the night, am I dreaming?
Waiting for a sign, I've seen it
Heavenly divine, so fairness will finally be justified
 
 
The Game Never Ends
Concord and tears from industrial giants,
Our pollution's counting for nothing
Graveyard obsessions and shallow confessions,
The game never ends in a draw.

An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away without cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.

Fragile and cold by the side of a mountain,
Big hopelessness bearing to promise,
Brothers and sisters of metal together
We'll conquer the darkness as one.

An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away without cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.

solo - Jens

An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away without cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.
 
 
Lifetime in a Moment
From the dark, I watch you go away
I will never see you...
Again

Every passing day prolongs my pain
I am slowly fading...
Into the void

Fades without a sound
A sound that no one cares to hear
A second round to live your life
Just passed away

Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment

Seize the say, don't let it slip...
Away
Cherish every moment...
Before it's gone

Fades without a sound
A sound that no one cares to hear
A second round to live your life
Just passed away
Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment

solo - Matias

Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment

Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment
 
 
Move the Mountain
Would you move the mountain,
Would you build a tower,
Would you drink the sunshine,
Like a wilted flower?

Would you waste that hour
If you knew this fullmoon would be
The last one you'd see?

Would you gaze in wonder
While the world was turning,
While the moon made quiet
All the years of yearning?

Would the flame keep burning,
If you knew the powers that be
Could set you free?

Don't know why you had to go
In the storylight, a flame in the darkness,
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.

Swam around in circles,
In a meandering ocean,
Had a dream of safety
That's lost emotion.

Could a faded notion
Make you find your way back to shore,
Looking for more?

So we head for safety,
But we never get there
And I brush the shadows
From a staring nightmare.

On the road to nowhere,
Would you help me carry my cross
And set me free?

Don't know why you had to go
In the storylight, a flame in the darkness,
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.

solo - Jens

Don't know why you had to go
In the storylight, a flame in the darkness,
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.
 
 
Event Horizon
Computer:
Warning! Event horizon ahead. Warning!

Standing outside
In darkness my breath is steaming
The skies open wide
I hear the silent screaming

Deep in the dark, somewhere in space
Spinning around, leaving no trace

Nothing escapes
And the boundaries been breached
All matter and shape
Destination's reached

The star dies, collapsing in its core
End of the journey, it won't be seen anymore

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Life gives away, there's no concern
A force that carries the event horizon lies ahead

solo - Matias / Duet / Jens / duet

Computer:
Alert! Destination's reached

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Life gives away, there's no concern
A force that carries the event horizon lies ahead

I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Life gives away, there's no concern
A force that carries the event horizon lies ahead

Computer:
Warning! Imaginable impact. Please evacuate immediately.
Counting... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
 
 
Elysium
Part 1

I've never felt like this before
Am I awake? Am I drifting?
There's a hole in the sky
Am I alive? Did I survive?

Broken pictures on my wall
A story of fallen heroes
Now stare ahead with their blind eyes on
A lost horizon

Sometimes the dream is sublime with you
I fear in my mind that ever
I'm reaching this feeling
It's misleading me away from you
Tonight, I find what I've been searching for
To go look for my wings once more

I'm not afraid anymore
I'm not afraid anymore

solo - Matias / Jens

Sometimes the dream is sublime with you
I fear in my mind that ever

I'm reaching this feeling
It's misleading me away from you
Tonight, I find what I've been searching for
To go look for my wings once more

I'm not afraid anymore
I am ready to fall
I'm not afraid anymore


Part 2

I am lying on the frozen ground alone
I got lost on my way, my time is up
I'm gone

I need to find the key
To eternal life and see
The joy, the smile,
The overwhelming love of God
Is what I need

Give me a sign, and shoe me the way
To the sacred place

I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms

Your shadow lurking in the corner of my eye
I'm losing sense of what's real and what's a lie

I need to find the key
To eternal life and see
The joy, the smile,
The overwhelming love of God
Is what I need

Give me a sign, and shoe me the way
To the sacred place

I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms

Eternal calling at your fame was not mine
Melody this falling lie

I feel it burning with me ahead
The earth is turning to red
I'm staring at the flaming skies
To not have to fight
A chance goes right by

solo - Jens / Matias / duet

I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms

I am holding a falling angel in my arms


Part 3

This life has been too long
There's hope everywhere I go

Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let this soul be free

Eternal light
Brain dead, my eyes

Pain and sorrow
Joy will follow
Now in turn
Elysium

solo - Jens

Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let your soul be free

Be afraid no more,
Just take my hand,
I'll guide you through the storm
We're finally home

Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let your soul be free

Be afraid no more,
Just take my hand,
I'll guide you through the storm
We're finally home

We'll be home
