The Mission
(Instrumental)
 
 
Phantom Divine (Shadow Empire)
I am all you ever wanted,
I'm a new dimension.
Immortality perfected,
Phantomized.

Expansion of life!

Generation of light,
Finding every deviation
Just to keep the future alive.

Under a phantom divine,
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace.

No applause for the old pantomime!
In the shadows of our dreams,
A phantom divine.

I'm the face of the selected,
I'm your chain reaction.
I am mortally rejected,
I am the empire.

Connecting the mind,
And I'll die just
To keep you alive.

Under a phantom divine,
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace.

No applause for the old pantomime!
In the shadows of our dreams,
A phantom divine.

Under a phantom divine,
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace.

No applause for the old pantomime!
In the shadows of our dreams,
A phantom divine.

There is still hope for you,
I am the empire.
All that you see is true,
I am the empire.

There is still hope for us
Under a phantom divine.

Under a phantom divine,
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace.

No applause for the old pantomime!
Like impulses of our dreams,
A phantom divine.

Under a phantom divine,
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace.

No applause for the old pantomime!
In the shadows of our dreams,
A phantom divine.

I am the empire...
 
 
Ravenlight
Silent tears
In a sea of sorrow.
If only god would talk to me
And promise me tomorrow.

Drowning in myself as
I am facing imperfection.
But the pain makes me feel
I am still alive.

In ravenlight you came to me,
From silence rose a symphony
Of coming winters white.

Paralysed,
Caught in desperation.
Endless nights revisiting
Internal conversations.

Finally I made my peace
With self intoxication.
So I bleed just to know
I am not alone.

In ravenlight you came to me,
From silence rose a symphony
Of coming winters white.

May light embrace
The darkest hour.
Let it shine to orchestrate
The shadows of the night.

In ravenlight you came to me,
From silence rose a symphony
Of coming winters white.

I love the way you sing to me,
From silence to a soaring symphony.
My rose in winter white!
 
 
Amnesiac
Say my name,
No beautifying filters.
I'm craving that honest pain!

These perfect lines
Are always out of place.
Only you and I were born
To break the chain.

Caught in the framework,
Dying to belong.
Escape the wasteland,
Don't forget who you are.

Amnesiac!

Don't let the world
Revolve around you,
Don't wait another day
To re-erase your memory.

Amnesiac!

Don't let the dream
Dissolve without you.
The more you know,
The more they hold you back.

Amnesiac!

Mortal peace
Pushing through a needle,
Observing your every move.

A thousand lies
To avoid the question why
Because the more you know,
The more they hold you back.

Caught in the framework,
Dying to belong.
Escape the wasteland,
Don't forget who you are.

Amnesiac!

Don't let the world
Revolve around you,
Don't wait another day
To re-erase your memory.

Amnesiac!

Don't let the dream
Dissolve without you.
The more you know,
The more they hold you back.

Amnesiac!

No beautifying filters
Beyond the perfect lines,
This effortless intrusion.
Stop, erase, rewind!

Amnesiac!
Escape the wasteland,
Don't forget who you are.

Amnesiac!

Don't let the world
Revolve around you,
Don't wait another day
To re-erase your memory.

Amnesiac!

Don't let the dream
Dissolve without you.
The more you know,
The more they hold you back.

Amnesiac!
 
 
Burns to Embrace
We teach them to pretend
Not to break the line,
To always look away
And never ask why.

We sit beside the cradle,
We tell them to be brave,
But when the warning sounds
It echoes to the grave.

We keep blindly moving
Along the same old path,
No common sense would
Guide us back to life.

Now look at us,
The pinnacle conception.
How we assumed
These walls would never fall.

Sleep!
Farewell forever, child.
Farewell!

We are the last to walk the earth
And watch the passing ages slowly sail.
How it burns to embrace
That, below the lilac skies,
Eternity is just a breath away.

In lockstep to damnation,
To our dying breath,
Every reckless footprint
Leaves the smell of death.

On the wilting meadows
We let them out to play.
We said "no need to worry",
Now they never may.

Sleep,
Farewell forever!

We are the last to walk the earth
And watch the passing ages slowly sail.
How it burns to embrace
That, below the lilac skies,
Eternity is just a breath away.

Sleep,
Farewell forever!

We are the last to walk the earth
And watch the passing ages slowly sail.
How it burns to embrace
That, below the lilac skies,
Eternity is just a breath away...
 
 
In Twilight Hours
Tell me, tell me god,
What is left here for me?
I'm a ghost in the window,
Oh god set me free!

And in twilight hours
I await forgiveness
That never comes.

In an ocean deep,
On a river wild,
The water pulls me down,
Never to be found again.

You never really know...
How could I know?
How many tears you own.
Until the day they were gone!

Gone without a trace
Until the day fall anew.
Fall anew...

Tell me, tell me god,
What is left here for me?
I'm a ghost in the window,
Oh god set me free!

And in twilight hours
I await forgiveness
That never comes.

Out there in the cold,
Remember me!
Along the broken
Road of reveries.

When you're
Rising from the dead,
Reviving from the dust again.

Like in a winterstorm...
I'll cover you!
I'm burning in the cold...
I'll keep you warm!

But I know I'm not alone
As long as I believe in you!

Tell me, tell me why,
Share your burden with me.
You're the ghost in the window
And I'll set you free.

When in twilight hours
You await forgiveness
That never comes.

Tell me, tell me god,
What is left here for me?
I'm a ghost in the window,
Oh god set me free!

And in twilight hours
I await forgiveness
That never comes.

Forgiveness will
Come for you!
 
 
Kevlar Skin
When fatal thoughts in winding sense
Strive to go past the terminal line,
Is it cruel to ease the pain
Of those who seek redemption?

Dare I take a leap of faith
Knowing my fears will materialize?
I lay myself down at your grace,
In stillness I surrender.

Because underneath this kevlar skin
I am waiting for you to uncover me.
And in this armoured prison cell
I'm hiding my scars.

Come discover me!

Tell me what is pain if not just fear,
Saying goodbye to a poisonous mind.
I let it hurt and hope that you
Will be my soul's salvation.

Because underneath this kevlar skin
I am waiting for you to uncover me.
And in this armoured prison cell
I'm hiding my scars.

Come discover me!

My solitude, a loyal friend,
You kept my darkest secret.
And guarded my monotonous immortality,
Keeping the fire away!

Because underneath this kevlar skin
I am waiting for you to uncover me.
And in this armoured prison cell
I'm hiding my scars.

Come discover me...
 
 
Static
Stay until the morning
Light reveals my ruins.
I was starving, now I hunger to feel
And let your curiosity dismantle me.

Now I just need your breath
Like a veil upon my skin.

Come lay with me,
This chemistry is static.
Like space debris
We're perfectly chaotic.

So come and merge
Your storm with mine
And save me.

Stay, hold me as
I'm trying to survive
And wrap me in your comfort.
My fears, I give them all to you
To keep them safe for me.

Because I just need your breath
Like a veil upon my skin.

Come lay with me,
This chemistry is static.
Like space debris
We're perfectly chaotic.

So come and merge
Your storm with mine
And save me.
 
 
Mindfall Remedy
When you're trapped
In your doubt and anger,
And you're wailing along
Like you relish the fail.

When your life
Turns to be deception,
And you're scratching
The walls on your cell.

Each step requires mad devotion!

Mindfall remedy!
No one else will catch you,
Only you possess the key.
Mindfall remedy!

All those rules
Were dissembling a future,
And you feel like you
Burn in emotional hell.

With the absence
Of love and compassion,
Every stone is a mountain high.

Each step requires mad devotion!

Mindfall remedy!
No one else will catch you,
Only you possess the key.
Mindfall remedy!

I feel my tower crumbling
With my resistance low.
I'm living in a vacuum,
I'm falling to the core.

In the core of resistance,
To face my inner self,
Lies the key to my existence
To help myself.

Mindfall remedy!
No one else will catch you,
Only you possess the key.
Mindfall remedy!
 
 
Stories Unheard
Welcome in, I'll walk you
Through the unknown.
Say a prayer if you wish.

In my hand all of the
Answers to your nightmares,
Just let go of your
Broken dreams.

Let the journey begin
Like a leaf in the wind.
You'll be taken away to
A world of visions unseen.

Imagine if far beyond the set horizon,
Nothing can turn into everything.
But hurry before it's too late
And the old ballerina takes her fall.

Let me show you a place
Where the blind can see
The light of a shooting star.

Like a dancer up high
On a silver string,
Let your actions
Define who you are.

Tell the stories unheard!

Follow me,
I'll take you
To the unknown.
Discover me, let me in.

Please honor me with the
Choices you've been given,
Remember me when my
Breath is cold.

As the journey begins,
Let the stories you
Tell be your own.

Let me show you a place
Where the blind can see
The light of a shooting star.

Like a dancer up high
On a silver string,
Let your actions
Define who you are.

Tell the stories unheard!

Though I love you
I'll leave you forever,
Praise the time I was here.

Celebrate all
Our chapter together,
Have no fear when I'm gone.

Let me show you a place
Where the blind can see
The light of a shooting star.

Like a dancer up high
On a silver string,
Let your actions
Define who you are.

Tell the stories unheard!
 
 
Vespertine (My Crimson Bride)
She wrote down this line on the barren wall
To not forget her trail of dreams.
But through the haze of her fevered pain
Her thoughts were hard to understand.

Born without a name on the darkest day,
Her future was already written.
As fantasies turned to poems on the stone,
The world began to come alive.

She made me smile
Though years passed by.

Come day, come night,
My crimson bride is dancing
On fields of gold.
This scenery will never fail
In my dreaming mind.

Dreaming mind!

All through these days
I have held your hand,
We never left the velvet cage.

Vespertine,
Our memories relive.
My irresistible demise!

She made me smile
Though years passed by.

Come day, come night,
My crimson bride is dancing
On fields of gold.
This scenery will never fail
In my dreaming mind.

Vague are the images around me,
And old is the color of the night!

She made me smile
Though years passed by.

Come day, come night,
My crimson bride is dancing
On fields of gold.
This scenery will never fail
In my dreaming mind.

Dreaming mind!
 
 
The Proud And the Broken
The proud

Where have all the heroes gone
That used to bleed for us?
Still holding on to fading lullabies,
And fear the end when every note is lost.

How can we know,
If a glance beyond
The shadow wall could
Free our souls.

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on,
While listening to the poetry of lies.
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on,
As ignorance of human life subsides.

They left us blind and broke our pride,
They told us to be brave.
But like an insect drawn to light
We circle around the radiance of truth.

How can we know,
If a glance beyond
The shadow wall could
Free our souls.

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on,
While listening to the poetry of lies.
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on,
As ignorance of human life subsides.

I am you,
You are me.
Feel the grace,
I set you free.

I am the empire...


The broken

I am learning to crawl,
Denying the fall.
In time I'll stand again!

I am bare to the skin,
I'm refusing to give in.
You can't break my heart again!

But I try, I keep trying,
And I dying to forgive.
All the matters is
What's going to be.

I try,
I keep trying,
I dying to forgive.

I am you,
You are me!

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on,
While listening to the poetry of lies.
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on,
As ignorance of human life subsides.

The Last Day of Sunlight
In the dark again
That borders to the
Old imagination,
The inside of my soul.

Once again lost, my friend.
So ashamed of what I've done!

All alone again
With nothing but the
Silent voices screaming
From the dark side of my heart.

Once again there, my friend.
Where my fears are torn apart!

Talk to me,
Because the shadows
Won't stop haunting me.

Talk to me,
Stay by my side
To the bitter end!

What if we fade
Like the midnight sun?
In the last rays of darkness
A journey begun.

What if we fall
Like the April rain?
When the last day of sunlight
Swept the pain away.

Reaching in again
To the void that I
So carefully protected.
Imaginary friend!

Out of reach, safe from harm.
My shell within a shell!

Talk to me,
Because the shadows
Won't stop haunting me.

Talk to me,
Stay by my side
To the bitter end!

What if we fade
Like the midnight sun?
In the last rays of darkness
A journey begun.

What if we fall
Like the April rain?
When the last day of sunlight
Swept the pain away.

Talk to me,
Because the shadows
Won't stop haunting me.

Talk to me,
Stay by my side
To the bitter end!

What if we fade
Like the midnight sun?
In the last rays of darkness
A journey begun.

What if we fall
Like the April rain?
When the last day of sunlight
Swept the pain away.

What if we fade
Like the midnight sun?
In the last rays of darkness
A journey begun.

What if we fall
Like the April rain?
When the last day of sunlight
Swept the pain away.
