This Will Never End
Once upon a time
No more words to say
Find me in the circle
Find me in the end

I am the soul collector
Dressed in ebony
There are no rules
But only one

There's someone young sister,
Caught at the border
Let's get in contact
He's either yours or mine

I have thought
That this will never end
And things go on
But nothing will last
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it
In distant shores of green
It's over now

Far out in space
I ride on
Time is chasing us all
It's not quite how it seems
It's just a dream

I don't believe
In a soul or in god
It's just twisted further
You do not understand...

Each single breath inspires you
Come to an end - expire

Rise up my sister
Let's cross the border
Reveal the secret
One more soul to burn

I have thought
That this will never end
And things go on
But nothing will last
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it
In distant shores of green
It's over now

You finally have approached still
There is something left to do:
Draw me and prove
Your souls not ripe, yet!
Prepare yourself then wait for me
Expect the day when I come by
You're released now
For a while you may feel resurrection
Open your eyes

The vision's bleak
And its color is black far beyond
There's a starving
But dying sun

I have thought
That this will never end
And things go on
But nothing will last
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it
In distant shores of green
It's over now
 
 
Otherland
They rule the land
They are in command
They hold all strings in hand
They are invisible
Out of sight
They've designed
A secret place
To play their games
A world they're in control
Divine law
Divine law
Be aware now
Mind your steps
We are uninvited guests
They may find and catch us
Don't forget
Do what I say
Now connect
Don't even ask
Until we're out of it
Everything's at highest stake
Come take a look

We are in
Take a breath
Don't forget
It isn't real
It isn't true
An illusion
Nothing more

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind
Oblivion
Is your key to the Otherland
You're part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
By now you understand

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
You're welcome to the Otherland
You're part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
By now you understand

We get closer
There's no better way
Lullaby Lane
Fate is on its way

The inner district
Is the place you need to know
It's overwhelming
So let's rest here for a while

Someone else appears silently
Watch me when I fall down
Everything seems real suddenly
A perfect simulation

Come take a look
Breathe it in
Artificial wonderlands
We are wandering around
Things shall vanish
They won't last
Now I know
You understand
This world is not true Nothing is real
Nothing at all
It's bits and pieces
We walk through

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
Is your key to the Otherland
You're part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
By now you understand 
You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
You've reached the promised land
You're part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
Welcome to the Otherland

Wait
I can feel things are not right
Do not breathe
Don't look behind
There's someone else
The observer

A trick of light
A fading line
The entrance is gone
We can't get out of it
We are slightly losing ground

Quick
It is time
We shall go
We better leave
And don't come back
No way to run
Nowhere to hide I fear
We're walking aimlessly

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
Is your key to the Otherland
You're part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
By now you understand
You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
Welcome to the Otherland
You're part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
You've reached
The promised land

You've crossed the line
You've reached the end
 
 
Turn the Page
Come tell
We're here to praise your name

Blazing sun and the bitter death
Now the guardian cross the gate

Wake up!
There is a new dawning
Wake up!
The witches wait
For you remember the mirror
When she looked in
You were born

(Were) A boy in a middle of night
There's nobody else
There's nothing at all

Suns and dawn
There's a cry in the air
(The heart one dies
When you were ever there)

Turn the wheel again!

A new beginning
Another end
Cried out
The land needs blood
Inside the ring you're waiting
Give up yourself and your life

It's time up for you
Come turn the wheel
There's nothing to feel
Come turn the wheel
Come turn the page
Oh, come turn the page

Solo 1

We do not believe in lies
Do not believe in lies

Then someone came
Someone came
Your alone and strong
The end of world
Now everything should move
When the new day begins

God of wind and god of rain
Turn the wheel
You better beware
From now this day will sing for you
The life will bless the child

(Realize) him
Supervise him
We will be with you until the end
Come move our hearts
We know there is life beyond the death

Cried out
We cry for blood
Come right up here and join us
Come guide us now
Time is out

It's time up for you
Come turn the wheel
There's nothing to feel
Come turn the wheel
Come turn the page
Oh, come turn the page

Solo 2

A new beginning
Another end
The myth of life
Your heart in your hand
We cried out
The land needs blood
The change of season
Praise to the newborn king!

Na, na, na, nanananana!
Na, na, na, nanananana!
Na, na, na, nanananana!

It's time up for you
Come turn the wheel
There's nothing to feel
Come turn the wheel
Come turn the page
Oh, come turn the page
 
 
Fly
Stop be quiet now
Out with the light and
Then up and down it goes.

Fly
Out with the light

There at the door
The inspiration I've looted for
The spirit of the youth appears

No one, fever-dates to speak
It's nothing else tot fantasy
It's mate believe
Make believe

No one ever dates to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
But one day it all will come to life

Step out of line
And I'll teach you how to fly
Then away we'll go
Leave your mark land of mine
Leave your mark in die land of mine

The second one to the right
And then straight on until morning light

Slop be quiet now
No irritation
No, not the slightest doubt

We go at once
Quick - we better hurry
There from the road I sense
The end of fun gets near
Wonderful thoughts and imaginations
These things will lift you up

What is it like? You ask me, my dear
Will there be fairies or things to fear?
For fairies sake I'd say you better come with me
So soon you'll see
Now up and down if goes and round
Round and round and round

Praise to my cleverness
They all follow me
All praise to innocence
That's everything it needs
Fly in
Fly out
They'll leave it all behind

No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
It's make believe
Make believe
No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
But one day it all will come to life

Step out of line
And I'll teach you how to fly
Then away we'll go
Leave your mark land of mine
Leave your mark in the land of mine

Life is a map and it is quite confusing
The lights are up now let the play begin
She flies, she flies
Into die light she flies
No words like "Just" in mind
She's finding Neverland
There on the day she dies
Don't stop it now
She still enjoys the scene
Don't stop it now
Don't stop it now
Don't stop it now
Don't stop it now, now, now

No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
It's make believe
Make believe
No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
But one day it all will come to life

Step out of line
And I'll teach you how to fly
Then away we'll go
Leave your mark land of mine
Leave your mark in the land of mine
 
 
Carry the Blessed Home
Pale faced the innocent
Will drown in blood
Hurt and withdrawn
Don't dare to steal my grief
In this haze of green and gold
He's gone
Blind my eyes
And I still
Can see through the mist
To the very end
There I'll face
What I fear the most

Blind my eyes...
But it all doesn't matter
Right now
I will bury my dead
And keep on
'Til the end
I won't give up
I won't give up
I'll turn
To the "red fields of none"
There's a grave
There's a rose
Drift away
I can hear me say
Soon you all shall be free

Carry the blessed home
No one's left here but me
And I will sing out your name
You call me insane, I know
I've opened my heart
And my soul to you son
So pale turns the innocent
And al I feel is pain
Suddenly I understand
He's gone
Blind my eyes
And I still
Can see through the mist
To the very end
There I'll face
What I fear the most
Blind my eyes
But it all doesn't matter
Right now

But it all doesn't matter
Right now

Carry the blessed home
No one's left here but me
And I will sing out your name
Driven insane?
No
What I feared the most
I have faced and that's truth
The grey faced is not innocent
Though I cry in dismay
I will follow decay
I'll move on
Is there anyone here
Who knows
How it feels to be wrong?

Blind my eyes
And I still
Can see through the mist
To there very end
There I'll face
What I fear the most
Blind my eyes...
But it all doesn't matter
Right now

But it all doesn't matter
Right now

Matter right now
Matter right now
 
 
Another Stranger Me
A seed of doubt
It exists
And it grows
A glimpse of life
From somewhere deep within
Awake and understand

Is there anyone else here?
Somebody's screaming
Please help me
Let's find out now
That I am not dreaming
Welcome to my damnation
Here it comes the real me

I didn't know
I couldn't hear the answer
My mind was blank
I should've known
I hold it back but somehow
There is someone else
Another stranger me
Another stranger me

That's
When the ice
Will break away

I can't get out of here
Anymore
Cause none of my keys
Fit the door

There's fear and anger
Hate and love
I must confess
It's out of hand

It's physic
It's cynic
Still cynic
All my laughter

It's cynic
Just manic
It's cynic
All her laughter

If there's anyone in
It soon will be over
We'll burn out
Our soul's a flamed
And we're on our own now
Give up you cruel invasion
You're insane I'll show you

I didn't know
I couldn't hear the answer
My mind was blank
I should've known
I hold it back but somehow
There is someone else
Another stranger me
Another stranger me

Out and gone
Can't resist
Cold and sore
The bolt of pain
Keeps ripping through my head
I can take no more

Don't tell anyone else but I
Do not believe her
She hates me
I cloud my mind
She's a deceiver
I can feel cruel vibrations
Would you like to meet me

I didn't know
I couldn't hear the answer
My mind was blank
I should've known
I hold it back but somehow
There is someone else
Another stranger me
Another stranger me
 
 
Straight through the Mirror
Can you tell me
Is there any other way?
I cannot hide it
I have doubts
I'm not afraid to stay
I'm here
When the curtain falls

Once I've touched the rainbow
The man on the moon will appear
I won't show fear

I turn to you, father death
I am begging you
Please
Consider
You may have been wrong

Just close your eyes now
Just close your eyes now

The end's a miracle
Dream on if you dare
Straight through the mirror
We'll sail on through the air
There's magic everywhere
Just be aware
Wake up when the crow will call

There is no truth
There are no rules,
There's no plot here
It's twisted
We're still on course
My friend
Down to the abyss - Orcus lane
Shelter of your memories
Shelter of your pain

The mirror shows truth
Reveals what you are
A phoenix in flames
Arise from the ashes again
We're on our way now
We're on our way now

We sail through miracles
Dream on if you dare
Straight through the mirror
We'll sail on through the air

I feel
There is something wrong
It's twisting and turning
When everything's burning awake
It's not safe

I'm coming down to you again
We'll sail on miracles and then
If you don't mind
I'll sing a song
A sort of lullaby this time

When you're asleep
I'm back again
A world of miracles in hand
If you don't mind
I'll sing a song
A sort of lullaby this time
We're on our way now
We're on our way now

The end's a miracle
Dream on if you dare
Straight through the mirror
We'll sail on through the air
There's magic everywhere
Just be aware
Wake up when the crow will call
Wake up when the crow will call
 
 
Lionheart
Just let me out of here
Speak to me
It all would be easier
I want to talk to you
Who is that?
Do I hear a whisper?
Or do I hear a cry?
Across the brown land
The stumps of time

Oh turn the wheel and heal me
Since moonlights fade
I'm empty - heal me

I'm in search of the Lionheart
I am ashamed
I myself can't make it
Drown Ulyssess
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out

Down below
I can't free my mind
Soon I will fade away
Down below
I can't free my mind
Soon I will fade

"Tic Tac" is the message
And the lunatic fears
He is no more

Speak to me
It all would be easier
While I'm passing by
What's that?
Do I hear a whisper?
Or do I hear a cry?
Across the brown land
The ghost arrives

Pick up my bones and
Tell me
Is this the "Lake of Fire"?
Hell?
Please

I'm in search of the Lionheart
Nobody else
But the pure can save me
Drown Ulysess
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out

Ruins rule my memories
I can't recall the signs
Invite the dead
Then silence struck my mind

Silence is madness
"Tic Tac Tic Tactic"
Says the clock

Just let me out of here
Speak to me
It all would be easier
I want to talk to you
Hear me

Welcome to this sad place
And hand me what is mine
I'm the Theban prophet
The dead and blind

And from the sea you'll feel me
Then you'll breath out gently
Leave me

I'm in search of the Lionheart
I am ashamed
I myself can't make it
Drown Ulyssess
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out
 
 
Skalds And Shadows
Would you believe in a night like this?
A night like this
When visions, come true
Would you believe in a tale like this?
A lay of bliss
We're praising the old lore
Come to the blazing fire and
See me in the Shadows
See me m the Shadows
Songs I will sing
Of runes and rings
Just hand me my harp
And this night turns into myth
Nothing seems teal
You soon will feel
The World we live in
Is another skald's
Dream in the shadows
Dream in the shadows
Do you believe there is sense in it
Is it truth or myth?
They're one in m\ rhymes
Nobody knows the meaning behind
The weaver's line
Well nobody else but the Norns can
See through the blazing fires of time and
All things will proceed as the
Child of the hallowed
Will speak to you now
See me in the Shadows
See me in the Shadows
Songs I will sing
Of tribes and kings
The carrion bird and the hall of the slain
Nothing seems real
You soon will feel
The World we live in
Is another skald's
Dream in the shadows
Dream in the shadows
Do not fear for my reason
There's nothing to hide
How bitter your treason
How bitter the lie
Remember the runes
And remember the light
All I ever want is to be at your side
We gladden the raven
Now I will run through the blazing fires
That's my choice
Cause things shall proceed as foreseen
 
 
The Edge
The world turned innocent
Can you hear me?
I confess I'm no redeemer
Can you hear me?
What shall I do?

I witnessed everything
Faith won't leave me
Mind my tongue
It's like a fire
Faith don't leave me
Glow into words

This is the edge now
It's all we're living for
Rain on me
Love you will rain on me
And at the end I
Boast in the cross
And now
Love reigns -
The god incarnation
I've shaped

Out there is a world on fire

Accursed the hanged one
Divine love for free
What a fateful night
And a grateful life
The choir echoes
"Every man his price"

Price
Light my agony
And crucify me
Void the law
At the ninth hour
Void the law
At the ninth hour

This is the edge now
It's all we're living for
Rain on me
Love you will rain on me
And at the end I
Boast in the cross
And now
Love reigns -
The god incarnation
I've shaped

The world turns flesh again
Mystified are the final hours
No more fear in
No more fear in

Passover
The brook
Time it is at hand
Obscure the facts
A passion play

This is the edge now
It's all we're living for
Rain on me
Love you will rain on me
And at the end I
Boast in the cross
And now
Love reigns -
The god incarnation
I've shaped

Hallowed be thy name
Hallowed be thy name

No more fear in...

Come take a look
The old symbols they move
Wounds still bleed
That's creed
No more fear in...
Can you see me?
Come take a look
At the depth of my soul
 
 
The New Order
Would you open the door
Son I know the way
Soon the flickering light
Will grow
Leave it to me now
Unchained
Unchained
Would you open the door
Enter the here and now
A new horizon
You'll rise you'll fall
And learn to live
Keep the faith - keep the pace

Your soul's like water but
Your fate is like the wind

Here's the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Do you remember
When we were moon knights?
We've slain the dragon
In the room
Now yours is the future
Your quest for the truth
How will it end up
I really do not know

This is no wonderland
Just keep in mind
Like a spell in certain books
Time will change it all

Away - oh please embrace me
Away - I will be gone
I'll take a look to see
What lies beyond
The break of dawn
Would you open the door
There is so much more to say

Keep the faith
Keep the pace
The soul's like water but
Your fate is like the wind

Here's the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Will you remember the old rule?
Will you fulfill this sacrifice?
Done for the future
Space for the new
How will it end up?
That's up to you

You're on the bridge -
On the borderline
No matter how
You'll never ever leave it

Here's the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Times will change

The soul's like water and
Like rain it will return

Live on in healing rain

The past shall find release
 
 
All the King's Horses
I can feel I'm one
With the tortured land
With its solitude and decay
There's no one left
All the other men
Pass on through the night

All dead and gone
Still I don't dare to move
The imprisoned soul
Cannot find back home

Snow falls down
It covers field and blood
Snow falls down
And clears the view

It is cold

And once again
The battle's fought
Out on the plains
So rhymes spread out its glory
But
No rhyme defines its pain

I can't recall all their names
Connection broke loose
They've crossed the lake
Reach the other side
And leave me alone
With the truth

All the king's horses
And all the king's men
They've failed to damn the flood
They've failed to find the grail
Talisien, old friend of mine
Sing my song

Then once again
The battle's lost
I am to blame
Snow falls down
All dead and gone
They all are dead and gone
They've turned to dust
They've sealed the past
A long, long time ago

I can't recall all their names
Connection broke loose
They've crossed the lake
Reach the other side
And leave me alone
With the truth

I can't recall all their names
Connection broke loose
They've crossed the lake
Reach the other side
And leave me alone
With the truth
 
 
Dead Sound of Misery
It's dark
Let's do it now
Bring in the sirens
Cut of their tongues
Do it now
Ignore their cries
Ignore their cries
Now close the door
And leave it

Nothing went wrong
The Archangel is falling
Mourners split
Take heart of grace
A ghostly candle light
Lit my room at night
Son of man
We're breeding wastelands
Wastelands

The blood of sirens
On my hands
I can't wash away
Still it pours
And stains our land
In bitterness
So cruel
Will ages go by
Dead sound of mistery

Come share our sorrows
Be one with the Hydra

It's drown or burn
I'm exploring bedlam
The time is right to move
Furthermore
Bring out the dead
Turn your back
On the ones you have loved
Enjoy the heat of your whore Babylon
Gear what the spirit says
There is no sense at all
Now come with me
Unfold the seals
No sense at all
No sense at all
There is no sense at all

So many times I have failed
Pure desperation
Still hear the cries of voices
Long gone by
They've gone abroad
And left this world behind
Leave me behind
Behind the walls I'm crying

The blood of sirens
On my hands
I can't wash away
Still it pours
And stains our land
In bitterness
So cruel
Will ages go by
Dead sound of mistery

Come share our sorrows
Be one with the Hydra

So many times I have failed
Pure desperation
Still hear the cries of voices
Long gone by
They've gone abroad
And left this world behind
Leave me behind
Behind the walls I'm crying

The blood of sirens
On my hands
I can't wash away
Still it pours
And stains our land
In bitterness
So cruel
Will ages go by
Dead sound of mistery

Come share our sorrows
Be one with the Hydra
