Beyond Reach of Tomorrow
If wishes came true
I'd be somewhere else, another time
Searching for you, and my kingdom to be
So close in my dreams
I know it's my destiny
In stories of old
They challenged the sea through rain and storm
It's filling my soul, an endless desire
That forces me down the edge of the world,
Through the mountain chains of time

At the end of the rainbow
Adventures are calling me
Beyond reach of tomorrow
My magic world of fantasy

Don't know what is real
When I'm awake or when I sleep
The truth lies concealed
Somewhere in a world that you never have seen
A gateway through time
That should never have been

At the end of the rainbow
Adventures are calling me
Beyond reach of tomorrow
My magic world of fantasy
 
 
Moral Poison
Yet another comedy
Offensive lyrics on CD
Moral poison in between the lines
You say fuck, all hell breaks loose
Suicide and drug abuse
God knows what is hidden in those rhymes
It is obvious to see
Modern day society
Need a scapegoat to go free

From high positions
They make decisions
Fight the symptoms, not the abuse
They place restrictions
On fact and fiction
In search of someone
To put the blame on
You are considered dangerous
A violation of free expression

Who are those to claim the right
To censor what you sing or write
Strange how they define democracy
It is obvious to see
Modern day society
Need a scapegoat to go free

From high positions
They make decisions
Fight the symptoms, not the abuse
They place restrictions
On fact and fiction
In search of someone
To put the blame on
You are considered dangerous
A violation of free expression
 
 
Strange Desire
Your life is a mess
The needle caress
Taking you higher
Any easy escape
A state without shape
Bound to misfire
Point blank range precision
You won't hear a sound
You'll be gone before you hit the ground

Strange desire
To throw your life away
Strange desire
A price too high to pay

So easily led
A gun to your head
Who's squeezing the trigger
One final shot
The problem you got
Gets bigger and bigger
Point blank range precision
You won't hear a sound
You'll be gone before you hit the ground

Strange desire
To throw your life away
Strange desire
A price too high to pay
 
 
The Key to Eternity
Life runs so fast
It's running away from you
And you are fighting so hard to defy the sands of time
Nothing will last
None of the things you do
You can't touch the sky, no matter how high you dare to climb

The game is to gain immortality
A monument to manifest your might
Erected to satisfy vanity
Seek the key to eternity

Trapped in a dream
You are convinced is true
A manic obsession to live forever and a day
Once you are gone
Who will remember you
Painted illusions dissolve as the colours fade away

The game is to gain immortality
A monument to manifest your might
Erected to satisfy vanity
Seek the key to eternity

Nothing will last
None of the things you do
Painted illusions dissolve as the colours fade away

The game is to gain immortality
A monument to manifest your might
Erected to satisfy vanity
Seek the key to eternity
 
 
Weight of the World
The day is done
I watch the stars light up the sky
Thinking of all those visions that we left behind
It seems too late to change, time has passed us by

Here we stand,
Burdened with the weight of the world

I still recall a time when things were crystal clear
But things got more obscure as days turned into years
And as we aged the passion slowly disappeared

Here we stand,
Burdened with the weight of the world

Now we sit behind a mental prison wall
And our past is merely whispers in the hall
It's sad, but we don't learn from history at all

And we die, burdened with the weight of the world
And we die, burdened with the weight of the world
 
 
Lightbringer
Came here to claim our land
Reached out a saving hand
Blessed us while killing our children
Defeated by holy steel
Before the cross we kneeled
Rites of old forever forbidden

Lightbringer - Saving our souls
Lightbringer - Searching for gold

I saw the serpent rise
Death in a priest's disguise
Poisoning our civilization
Sailing a sea of blood
Shed in the name of god
Purpose, purification

Lightbringer - Saving our souls
Lightbringer - Searching for gold

The sea grands each man hope
As sleep will bring them dreams
Dreams of halls of gold
Clad with gems that gleam
The voices scream,
Hey missionary man
This is our promised land
Take your demons back where you came from
Is that what you truly are?
Men of the fallen star
Hell is where you doubtless belong

Lightbringer - Saving our souls
Lightbringer - Searching for gold
Lightbringer - Preaching so smooth
Lightbringer
 
 
Life into Light
It seems like people trade science for faith
Is it just old inherited hate
So many years of holy wars
Billions killed by religious cause
Countless points of view
Many chosen few
None have really known, just believed what is true
The greater their number, the truer their truth
Those who won't confirm they will persecute
Political conviction, patriotic pride
Stand up! Salute the banner!
Do or die
The kamikaze wind is still blowing
And the jihad has just begun
Brainwashed modern-day crusaders
Hiding from the sun

Life into light
A burning fascination
Is that what you want
An atomic hibernation
Day will be night
There'll be no explanation
The prophecies came true, not caused by fate, caused by me and you

Monuments over glorious death
Murder elevated to heroic acts
Brave or stupid, the difference is fine
If a code of honour don't prevent your decline
You want the millennium, the quest by your hand
For god you press the button for the sake of man
Realistic insights fail to fill our world
Enlightened derided by discipline to creed
Yet another inquisition
Starling witchhunts of today
Undercover operations
Sacred acts of hate

Life into light
A burning fascination
Is that what you want
An atomic hibernation
Day will be night
There'll be no explanation
The prophecies came true, not caused by fate, caused by me and you

And so we face the naked now
The moment just before the end
The greatest truth is now revealed
About an extinct race of the universe
From a burned-out place they once called earth
 
 
Puppet Show
The fools with the least to tell
Are the ones to be heard
Self-styled traders of neon dreams
Press the remote to your wishing well
And dive into their world
Live your life through the TV screen

You're like a puppet in the hands of well-dressed salesmen
They pull your strings and you will pay for new sensations
I guess it's easy to abandon reason
When fantasy comes true in two dimensions

Knowing how to control the game
They invite you to play
Making offers you can't refuse
Dulling your judgement frame by frame
Make you believe what they say
Replacing knowledge with prefab views

You're like a puppet in the hands of well-dressed salesmen
They pull your strings and you will pay for new sensations
I guess it's easy to abandon reason
When fantasy comes true in two dimensions
 
 
In the Eyes of the Wild
I hear the forest crying
A silent pain runs through the ground
In a glade a deer is dying
It's struggle ends without a sound

We're closing our eyes
We don't want to see
The wildlife tragedy
It should be a crime
But it seems to be legal insanity
The profiteer doesn't care at all
It's just a personal rise or fall
Though they're not crying tears
You see the question: Why?
In the eyes of the wild

Where sylvan gods were reigning
Hollow silence now prevails
And as the sun is slowly sinking
The Queen of sadness spreads her veil

We're closing our eyes
We don't want to see
The wildlife tragedy
It should be a crime
But it seems to be legal insanity
The profiteer doesn't care at all
It's just a personal rise or fall
Though they're not crying tears
You see the question: Why?
In the eyes of the wild

We're closing our eyes
We don't want to see
The wildlife tragedy
It should be a crime
But it seems to be legal insanity
Though they're not crying tears
You see the question: Why?
Guilt is so hard to take from eyes that cannot lie
In the eyes of the wild
