Why Not Me
Oh, some may call it a curse
A life like mine
But others, a blessing
It's certainly a lonely life
But a fulfilling one at best
It's my cross to bear
And I bear it gladly
Someone has to take a stand against evil
Why should it not be me?
 
 
Shot in the Dark
I've been left out alone like a damn criminal
I've been praying for help 'cause I can't take it all
I'm not done,
It's not over.
Now I'm fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I'm desperately holding on to it all
But I'm lost
I'm so damn lost

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

'Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark (x2)

In the blink of an eye
I can see through your eyes
As I'm lying awake I'm still hearing the cries.
And it hurts,
Hurts me so bad.
And I'm wondering why I still fight in this life
'Cause I've lost all my faith in this damn bitter strife
And it's sad
It's so damn sad

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I'm hoping that somehow

'Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark (x5)

I feel you are fading away (x4)

'Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart

Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?
I breathe underwater
It's all in my hands
But what can I do?
Don't let it fall apart
A shot in the dark (x5)
 
 
In the Middle of the Night
I've been walking this road of desire,
I've been begging for blood on the wall.
I don't care if I'm playing with fire,
I'm aware that I'm frozen inside.
I have known all along.

So much more going on, no denying,
But I know I'm not standing alone.

You've been playing my mind through my wishes.
You can feel that we're haunting the truth.
Don't know why, can't hold on, always losing control.

In the middle of the night,
I don't understand what's going on,
It's a world gone astray.
In the middle of the night,
I can't let it out.
Someone keeps searching
And shatters your life.
It will never be in vain
In the middle of the night.

No more tears, no, 'cause nothing else matters,
I've been closing my eyes for too long.
Only vengeance will make me feel better,
There's no rest 'til I know that it's done.

You've been playing my mind through my wishes.
You can feel that we're haunting the truth.
Don't know why, can't hold on, always losing control (losing control).

In the middle of the night,
I don't understand what's going on
It's a world gone astray.
In the middle of the night,
I can't let it out.
Someone keeps searching
And shatters your life.
It will never be in vain
In the middle of the night.

In the middle of the night
In the middle of the night

In the middle of the night,
I don't understand what's going on,
It's a world gone astray.
In the middle of the night,
I can't let it out.
Someone keeps searching
And shatters your life.
It will never be in vain
In the middle of the night
 
 
Faster
I can't sleep 'cause it's burning deep inside
Like gasoline on fire running wild
No more fear 'cause I'm getting closer now
So unreal but I like it anyhow

I go faster and faster and faster and faster and faster and faster and faster.

And I can't live in a fairytale of lies
And I can't hide from the feeling 'cause it's right
And I go faster and faster and faster and faster for life
I can't live in a fairytale of lies

I can feel that you mesmerize my heart
I feel so free, I'm alive, I'm breaking out
I won't give in, 'cause I'm proud of all my scars
And I can see I've been wasting too much time

A fairytale of lies

(Instrumental break)

A fairytale of lies.
 
 
Fire And Ice
Every word you're saying is a lie
Run away my dear
But every sign will say your heart is deaf

Bury all the memories
Cover them with dirt
Where's the love we once had
Our destiny's unsure
Why can't you see what we had
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Closer to insanity
Buries me alive
Where's the life we once had
It cannot be denied
Why can't you see what we had?
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

You run away
You hide away
To the other side of your universe
Where you're safe from all that hunts you down
But the world has gone
Where you belong
And it feels too late so you're moving on
Can you find your way back home?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I'm breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Every word you're saying is a lie.
 
 
Iron
Left in the darkness
Here on your own
Woke up a memory
Feeding the pain
You cannot deny it
There's nothing to say
It's all that you need to fire away

Oh damn, the war is coming
Oh damn, you feel you want it
Oh damn, just bring it on today

You can't live without the fire
It's the heat that makes you strong
'Cause you're born to live and fight it all the way
You can't hide what lies inside you
It's the only thing you know
You'll embrace it and never walk away
Don't walk away

Don't walk away
Don't walk away
Don't walk away

Raised in this madness
You're on your own
It makes you fearless
Nothing to lose
Dreams are a drug here
They get in your way
That's what you need to fight day by day.

Oh damn, the war is coming
Oh damn, you feel you want it
Oh damn, just bring it on today

You can't live without the fire
It's the heat that makes you strong
'Cause you're born to live and fight it all the way
You can't hide what lies inside you
It's the only thing you know
You'll embrace it and never walk away
Don't walk away

(You need not fear us,
Unless you are a Darkheart
A vile one who preys on the innocent
I promise
You can't hide forever from the empty darkness
For we will hunt you down like the animals you are
And pull you into the very bowels of hell)

Oh damn, the war is coming
Oh damn, you feel you want it
Oh damn, just bring it on today

You can't live without the fire
It's the heat that makes you strong
'Cause you're born to live and fight it all the way
You can't hide what lies inside you
It's the only thing you know
You'll embrace it and never walk away
Don't walk away

Don't walk away
Don't walk away
Don't walk away
 
 
Where Is the Edge
In the shadow awaits a desire
But you know that you can't realize
And the pressure will just keep on rising
Now the heat is on
It's too late, there is no way around it,
You have seen it yourself many times.
In the end you will give up to fight it
Unescapable

'Cause you're losing your mind and you're sleeping with wide-open eyes

Where is the edge of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

It's the rule that you live by and die for
It's the one thing you cannot deny
Even though you don't know what the price is,
It is justified
So much more that you've got now to fight for
But it still doesn't change who you are
There is no fear you'll ever give in to,
You're untouchable

'Cause you're losing your mind and you're sleeping with wide-open eyes

Where is the edge of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

You can't stop yourself,
Don't want to feel
Don't want to see what you've become
You can't walk away from who you are
Never give in

Where is the edge of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive
 
 
Sinead
I've got to try it's not over yet
No signals of life have you left
My heart is bleeding just for you
Bleeds for only you
And it hurts to know the truth

Are you looking for saviour
Chasing a dream?
Love turned to hate
Now I'm crossing the borders
Sealing our fate
But I'm not afraid

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Life is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it, I know
Oh Sinead,
It's the first time
Only you can set it free
Oh Sinead
Come break away with me

This second chance, I know, won't last
But it's OK, got no regrets
And I, I feel the end near, I'm no fool
Getting closer
But I'm doing what I should

I've been drowning in sorrow
Chasing tomorrow, running away
Now you're crossing the borders
Sealing tomorrow
But you're not afraid

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Life is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it, I know
Oh Sinead,
It's the first time
Only you can set it free
Oh Sinead
Come break away with me

I've been drowning in sorrow
Chasing tomorrow, running away
Now you're crossing the borders
Sealing tomorrow
But you're not afraid

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Life is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it...

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Life is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it, I know
Oh Sinead,
It's the first time
Only you can set it free
Oh Sinead
Come break away with me.
 
 
Lost
My hope is on fire
My dreams are for sale
I dance on a wire
I don't want to fail her

I walk against the stream
Far from what I believe in
I run towards the end
Trying not to give in

She's lost in the darkness
Fading away
I'm still around here
Screaming her name
She's haunting my dreamworld
Trying to survive
My heart is frozen
I'm losing my mind

Help me, I'm buried alive
Buried alive

I'm burning the bridges
And there's no return
I'm trying to reach her
I feel that she yearns

I walk against the stream
Far from what I believe in
I run towards the end
Trying not to give in

She's lost in the darkness
Fading away
I'm still around here
Screaming her name
She's haunting my dreamworld
Trying to survive
My heart is frozen
I'm losing my mind

Help me, I'm buried alive
Buried alive

I tried to revive what's already drowned
They think I'm a fool who can't realize
Hope plays a wicked game with the mind
'Cause I thought that love would bind
I cannot revive what's already drowned
She won't come around

She's lost in the darkness
Fading away
I'm still around here
Screaming her name
She's haunting my dreamworld
Trying to survive
My heart is frozen
I'm losing my mind

Help me, I'm buried alive
Buried alive
 
 
Murder
I've been around these vicious lives too
Too long to be neglecting the truth
I'm getting closer and I'm fully armed.

I'm about to haunt you down through
The big black hole right behind you
And I'm about to cut your wings away

'Cause I've been finding out
Where you've broken in
And I will take you out
When I close you in

I'm killing them all
I put my soul on the line
I purify sins
That I committed in life
I'll follow them all
And I'll be bringing them down
Wherever they go
I'm right behind
There's nowhere to go
Your head on the line
There is no rope
You're running out of time
So where will you go
When I will murder your soul?

I'm about to do it your way
I will make your world unsafe
I never thought you'd get this far it's insane

You don't believe what all the signs say
I don't believe in Judgment day
But you won't be leaving here unharmed

'Cause I've been finding out
Where you've broken in
And I will take you out
When I close you in

I'm killing them all
I put my soul on the line
I purify sins
That I committed in life
I'll follow them all
And I'll be bringing them down
Wherever they go
I'm right behind
There's nowhere to go
Your head on the line
There is no rope
You're running out of time
So where will you go
When I will murder your soul?

You can't feel the pain
I scream in vain
You sink away
To the bottom
You can't break your chains
Break away from here.

I'm killing them all
I put my soul on the line
I purify my sins
That I committed in life
I'll follow them all
And I'll be bringing them down
Wherever they go
I'm right behind
There's nowhere to go
Your head on the line
There is no rope
You're running out of time
So where will you go
When I will murder your soul?
 
 
A Demon's Fate
Ohhohoho

You'll burn this time
Seeing the violence
It's feeding my mind
No one is saving you
How can you find a heaven in this hell?

Leave it behind
Hearing your silence
It screams our goodbye
Cannot believe it's an eye for an eye
Let us go to waste

Angels have faith
I don't want to be a part of his sin
I don't want to get lost in his world
I'm not playing this game

When the shadows remain in the light of day
On the wings of darkness he'll retaliate
He'll be falling from grace
'Til the end of all his days

From the ashes and hate
It's a cruel demon's fate
On the wings of darkness
He's returned to stay
There will be no escape
'Cause he's fallen far from grace

Ohhohoho

What have you done?
Is this what you wanted?
What have you become?
Your soul's not forsaken
You're walking alone
From heaven into hell.
Now you know
Your way in this madness
Your powers have gone
Your chains have been broken
You've suffered so long
You will never change.

Angels have faith
I don't want to be a part of his sin
I don't want to get lost in his world
I'm not playing this game

When the shadows remain in the light of day
On the wings of darkness
He'll retaliate
He'll be falling from grace
'Til the end of all his days

From the ashes and hate
It's a cruel demon's fate
On the wings of darkness
He's returned to stay
There will be no escape
'Cause he's fallen far from grace

Angels have faith
I don't want to be a part of his sin
I don't want to get lost in his world
I'm not playing this game

When the shadows remain in the light of day
On the wings of darkness
He'll retaliate
He'll be falling from grace
'Til the end of all his days

From the ashes and hate
It's a cruel demon's fate
On the wings of darkness
He's returned to stay
There will be no escape
'Cause he's fallen far from grace

Oh oh oh oh (x4)
 
 
Stairway to the Skies
Seven seconds 'til the rise
Can't believe I'm still alive
And heaven was waiting for me
I thought this would be the end
But I know you'll understand
All that is keeping me here

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
Whenever you call for me
Know that I'm only one step behind

My senses tell me I have changed
But one thing still remains
I'm torn and the hate's still aching
I slowly start to realize
We won't reunite
I still have to march on through

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
Whenever you call for me
Know that I'm only one step behind

Is it a curse or a virtue?
Have I been blinded by regret?
Perdition awaits
My soul is at stake
Will I find a stairway to the skies in the end?

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
Whenever you call for me
Know that I'm only one step behind
Know that I'm only one step behind
