Eagleheart
All through the night he is lying awake
Wond'ring how much more can he take(s)
Watching the walls where shadows dance
Drifting away into a trance
And his eyes are blazing with fire

Dreams burnt to ashes so many times
Highest of mountains, still he climbs
Ready to fly, cause he just can't stay
Flame burning brighter with everyday
And his eyes are blazing with fire
Longing for the deepest desire

Heart of an eagle
He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world and finds the sun
Spreading his wings
Above all the sorrows
The glory of Eagleheart

Fever is burning in his veins
Determined with courage, breaking the chains
Back against the wall under blood red skies
Prepared to fight until he dies
And his eyes are blazing with fire
Longing for the deepest desire

Heart of an eagle
He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world and finds the sun
Spreading his wings
Above all the sorrows
The glory of Eagleheart
 
 
Soul of a Vagabond
Pack on my back I wander
Over mountains across the seas
My yearning soul keeps roaming
In the Endless search for peace

Sky is My roof, my shelter
Stars shine and light my way
Earth is my bed, my altar
On this road that leads to nowhere

In silence I scream but no one listens to me
Absolution, salvation, my sins won't leave me be
The first cry, the last breath
We are born to die
This madness neverending
Don't know the reason why
Soul of a vagabond
Illusion, delusion, we are born to live
Temptation, damnation, starvation, deformation

The road goes on forever
It's an old and trustworthy friend
I have tasted its dust and treasures
But my twisted mind won't mend

My burden is heavy to carry
My destiny lies ahead
My spirit is always leaving
For this road that leads to nowhere...

In silence I scream but no one listens to me
Absolution, salvation, my sins won't leave me be
The first cry, the last breath
We are born to die
This madness neverending
Don't know the reason why
Soul of a vagabond
Illusion, delusion, we are born to live
Temptation, damnation, starvation, deformation
 
 
Find Your Own Voice
No christ, god nor religion
Gave me the answers I was looking for
Arrogant hypocrites
Selling the key to heaven's door

I've got my own way
I don't care what you say
You speak your truth and I speak mine

Find your own voice
Unleash the power within
Go find your own truth and let others be
Let your own light guide your way through life
Find your own way
Make your own paradise

Find your own voice
It's your own choice
 
 
Fantasia
Welcome to my world
Close the gates
You've come from far away
I've been expecting you
You are the holders of the key
To the story that never ends

Fantasia
Resides deep in your heart
Leave your worries far behind
Fantasia
Let the freedom ring the bell
Let us all unite
Borders made of hate are gone
Nations singing the song of peace
In Fantasia

How would it be? A world without hate
Without heaven, without hell
No wars, no arms, no religion, no god
Just your own truth

Fear and darkness prevail
But finally they will fail

Fantasia
Resides deep in your heart
Leave your worries far behind
Fantasia
Let the freedom ring the bell
Let us all unite
Borders made of hate are gone
Nations singing the song of peace
In Fantasia

Fantasia
One day when love conquers all
Mankind will prevail
No more jealousy
Fantasia
No more envy no deceit
The nothing is gone
Future's bright and glorious
We are all victorious
We are kings in fantasia
 
 
Learning to Fly
Life will go on
Soon it is gone
It's bigger than we can conceive
A thousand eye
A thousand years
Into eternity we shed our tears

I'm changing,
Rearranging my destiny

Learning to fly
Touching sky on my way
Learning to fly
High above the sorrows
To a new day I fly

Not where you stand
Nor where you are
It matters only where you look
To take the good
With the bad
It is the only way to go

The minutes
The hours
The years
Run fast

Learning to fly
Touching sky on my way
Learning to fly
High above the sorrows
To a new day I fly
 
 
Papillion
Flying to the day
One day to play
With eyes open wide
I am Papillon

I watch the world
Curiously
World is my home
I am Papillon

I have no God
Life is in me
I am in life
I am Papillon

Brightest of days
Holds my in embrace
I am free
I am Papillon

In my dreams
In my life
In my soul
In my eyes
In my heart
I am real
I am Papillon
 
 
Stratofortress
(Instrumental)
 
 
Elements
Elements - Wind, Fire, Water, Earth
Elements - Fear, Anger, Sorrow, Joy

Pools of sounds fill my mind
A universe of shapes
Kaleidoscope of colours
Stargardens blossom in their solitude
Spiral architecture
Here I'm standing
Curiosity, thirst for knowledge

Eye for an eye and the whole world will be blind
Oceans of madness drowning the hope of mankind
What kind of man kills because of ideology?
What kind of god justifies violence?

I am begging for comprehension
While aggression tears the world apart

Elements - Wind, Fire, Water, Earth - Elements
We are star children
Elements - Fear, Anger, Sorrow, Joy - Elements
That's what we are made of
Elements - Wind, Fire, Water, Earth - Elements
That's what life's made of
Elements - Fear, Anger, Sorrow, Joy - Elements
That's what I'm made of

Wind - bringer of fright
Fire - protector
Water - cleanse my soul
Earth - be my guide

And in the darkest night
I won't give up the fight
I won't be losing hope
I hold on to what is true...

Elements - Wind, Fire, Water, Earth - Elements
...
Elements - Fear, Anger, Sorrow, Joy - Elements
...
 
 
A Drop in the Ocean
Seasons of madness fill my mind
A lunar poet trying to find
A conception of what life is all about
Seconds pass me by I greet the minutes
As the hours roll them over
And the years will drown the days and months

We are one, we are strangers in the night
Searching for our way to the light
Like an echo of unseen fantasies
That you'll never be able to catch

A drop in the ocean we're sailing upon
The angels of heaven are singing this song
Just souls in the corner of our universe
It seems that it's all we are
A drop in the ocean

Planet caravans sail on and on
In cosmic harmony they go
Within embrace of universal womb
Is it cosmic madness, harmony?
I ask you in my agony
As time won't heal my wounds it makes me numb

We are one, we are strangers in the night
Searching for our way to the light
Like an echo of unseen fantasies
That you'll never be able to catch

A drop in the ocean we're sailing upon
The angels of heaven are singing this song
Just souls in the corner of our universe
It seems that it's all we are
A drop in the ocean

Run Away
Run the other way
Wipe your tears away
The pain is here to stay
Nothing in the way
Take the clouds away
There's nothing more to say
There's nothing more to say

Run away
I will remember you
Run away
I will remember 'til I die

Never wanna die
Drowning in the sky
Like rats who left the trap
Was it just a game
Only doubts remain
We're drowning in the pain.
