Journey: Shadow of Today
Silently I cried a thousand tears
I tried but failed relentlessly
Yes I tried, but lacked the power to disagree
Why did you turn your back on me?

Stunned... Dazed...
I loathe the choice you've made
Stone cold you gaze back at me
How I tried to persuade you of my reality
All in vain, deafened by all my pain

Even the blind could see
Despair is written in your eyes
In time the wounds will heal
Stepping out won't serve you right

I'll have to face the truth now
Despair is all that serves me right
In time I only fade away
Become a shadow of today
 
 
Into the Void
Awakened by this light
I heard the cry divide
Sealed my lies with might
As I hurried back in time
To save the light to shine
The sign!

Fall with me into infinity
Come with me to change reality

Now I feel no longer alone
I live through every soul
Into the void
And I known I'm destined to be
I can't neglect the things I've seen

Offended by my kind 
In shame I live again
Travelling through the void
Diving into the unknown
Inside I'll see...
 
 
Elements' Theme
(Instrumental)
 
 
Elements of the Truth
I have chosen you to recognize the unknown
An image of me, without revealing its complexity
Welcome to all I am explore me thoroughly
Leave the tree for what it is 

You must know the ground you walk upon
Ain't nothing but the love you gave me
I am the tree and I'm fed by you
I hand over all I am

One day you're gone and the tree will too
My world will fade away with you

So I have chosen you and you've chosen me
Now, now all of me has become yours too
Seduced by the unknown
The desire to experience
Hear the roars in depths of silence
Forget the cave, think for god's sake

You were my last and only hope
Voluntarily swallowed by the cave
Placed curiosity above me
Removed the ground beneath the tree

You're gone but still I am
The ground remains so does the tree
But the grief has ceased to be
Better of alone, I'm free

I forgot who I really am
Thought I couldn't make it on my own
Released and appeased
The tree died, I'm new seed

I was the tree and always fed by you
The ground was based upon your love
The cave was nothing but the truth
My real grief was caused by all your carves
All your carves...
 
 
A Tale of the Heart
(Lost in Misery Trilogy I)
Make the pain go away
I kiss the tears from your face

Damn these tears 
Burning in my soul
Curse this pain
I don't want to live alone

All the anger, pain and tears
Refusal, denial and wasted years
It's not yet right don't leave me now

A tale of the heart
Broken with a promise
Three empty words
I miss you can't your see?

All the anger, pain and tears
Refusal, denial and wasted years
It's not yet right don't leave me now

I'll let you go
Cold as it may seem
I watch your face
Slowly fade away

A tale of the heart

Reach out for me in time
You better hear my cries
Why won't your rescue me
From all the lies within I see?
 
 
Will to Live On
(Lost in Misery Trilogy II)
Only the bed remains
It was left behind while morning
Memories honour he who rests now

The will to live on
The need to be strong
Please allow yourself and others 
To find peace now

I love you
I always will
But now it's time to move on
Out of sight, but never out of heart
 
 
Why Me?
(Lost in Misery Trilogy III)
I admit to cry and scream
Can't this merely be a dream
Didn't believe what they say
But now we're separated by death 
Our characters the same
One's fault the other's blame
Now that you're gone and I'm alone
It's pale where the sun once shone

All the things that we have been through
Sorrow and joy I gave you
Living by each other's strength
I knew you, you knew the me
It all happened way too fast
I can't accept this ain't no end
You must be hiding somewhere 
No please God this ain't fair

Why me?
I'm being swallowed by these questions
Why me?
Shivers down my spine
Why me?
I'm being punished for no reason
Why me?
Lost in misery

There are things you can't control
Before you know it claims you whole
Letting go might seem the worst part
Think again when grief's tearing you apart
Try remembering the good things
Still submit yourself to sadness
Because he who pushes all away
Severely suffers every day

Why me?
I'm being swallowed by these questions
Why me?
Shivers down my spine
Why me?
I'm being punished for no reason
Why me?
Lost in misery

All shaken I awake
The nightmares in my sleep
Dreams of you I cannot rest
Scared of the person I knew best
Cold and left behind
The one I loved ain't here tonight
I'll pay for a visit therefore instead
I feel relieved facing my own death

Why me?
I'm being swallowed by these questions
Why me?
Shivers down my spine
Why me?
I'm being punished for no reason
Why me?
Lost in misery
 
 
Everlasting Burden
We seize the day
Safely guided on our way
Clambering up before we sink to drown

Our beings disposable
We were meant for a bigger cause
This burden is carried by us
Hesitation and weakness we know not

We seize the day
Because tomorrow might be taken away
Forever and evermore
Lifting the everlasting burden

Who will be there for for us
When the burden weighs too much
In years we'll be sinking away
Sinking away to drown

We seize the day
Because tomorrow might be taken away
Forever and evermore
Lifting the everlasting burden
 
 
The Luring Red
Say farewell before you greet me
Every encounter may be your last
As I crawl up from behind
You say your prayer, better say them fast

Come into my dominion
Where you know you don't belong
The eerie silence's has been broken
By the opening of a door

Red eyes stare back at me
Tongues point from behind
Rats crawl from out of nowhere
They may be your only guide

The choice is yours to make
My friend I leave it up to you
The path is yours to take
Either way, you're my destiny

The shape of my contour appears
I desire the youth you'll bring
Quivering you behold the me
I will prolong your destiny

Red eyes stare back at me
Tongues point from behind
Rats crawl from out of nowhere
They may be your only guide

The choice is yours to make
My friend I leave it up to you
The path is yours to take
Either way, you're my destiny

Craving the youth
The red lures
The blood divine
Swallow the life

The choice is yours to make
My friend I leave it up to you
The path is yours to take
Either way, you're my destiny
 
 
Forgotten Years
Lightning has struck again
The time is here
I can't deny this secret no more
Long gone and forgotten years

They've led to downfall
And will be our ruin in the end

Our fortune's told to me
I reveal the future
Expect the inevitable
Long gone and forgotten years

They've led to downfall
And will be our ruin in the end
 
 
Tide
(Instrumental)
 
 
The Prophecy
The chosen have spoken
Tomorrow we'll reign again 
The tide is closing in
Now we're lost into disbelief

It's slipping through my hands
Heading towards the abyss

It's cast upon ourselves
We're liars in disguise
It's cast upon ourselves
Now look into my eyes...

Do you live by the prophecy
As foretold so long ago?

The chosen have spoken
Tomorrow we'll turn the page
Together we'll break this chain
And all our faith shall be obtained

But it's slipping, through our hands
Heading towards the abyss

It's cast upon ourselves
We're liars in disguise
It's cast upon ourselves
Now look into my eyes

Do you live by the prophecy
As foretold so long ago?
The ever-burning questions
They keep on knocking at my door
 
 
A Waste of Compassion
Wait... Prey...
Patience is the answer
Praise your conscience
For I was left alone

Again brutish necessity
Wipes its hands upon the napkin
Of a dirty cause again
A waste of compassion

But just you wait 
Just you wait
Now I am hurting too

You act divine when taking the pain alone
I run away, but I'm taking the fall

Grief... Hate...
And I've got you to blame
Praise your conscience
For I was left alone

Again brutish necessity
Wipes its hands upon the napkin
Of a dirty cause again
A waste of compassion

You act divine when taking the pain alone
I run away, but I'm taking the fall

You act divine when taking the pain alone
I run away, but I'm taking the fall
And I take you down with me
