In a Namless Time
The Mysterium

Awakening this curse was the last of all my fears.
If I could turn back time to free me from this crime.
A nameless time.
It started back in time when something stole my mind
And led me through aeons to place and time unknown.
I lived their life, lost in their time, without my face.

Take me back home from these cryptic walls.
I wait for a sign from my own reality, I wait here
In a nameless time.

A certain time passed by, I returned to my life
With memories hard to find, a secret in my mind.
I found it out, I've learned about the place I've been.

Take me away to these cryptic walls.
I wait for a sign from this old reality, it calls me
From a nameless time.
Take me back to these cryptic walls,
To this desert place and this strange reality, it calls me
From a nameless time.

The Expedition

I broke up to find this place, find those from the elder race.
In this unknown desert land I was digging in the sand.
Found these ruins, blocks of stone, older than the Egypt ones.
Climbed in caves unspeakable, far down in the planets depths.

There were these enchanted books, pages that I've known too well,
Written by the aliens 'bout the way their study's been.
They transformed through space and time in all kind of living minds
Learning this way everything how through times the culture's been.

And I imagined how it's been like travelling through a nameless
Time. And I remembered how I felt when I was
In a nameless time, in a nameless time...
In a nameless time, in a nameless time...

Take me home from these cryptic vaults.
I wait for a sign from my own reality, I wait here
In a nameless time.

Finding Out

Although the most I knew I needed a final proof
If I'd been one of them. And then these pages came:
My written words! So I'd been here in one of them...

Take me back home from these cryptic vaults.
'Cause I've been alive in a strange reality,

Release me from this nameless time.
Take me home from these cryptic vaults.
I'm cursed for all time in this strange reality.
Release me from this nameless time...
In no time.
In no time.
 
 
Alive But Dead
As I walk the streets I feel no pain.
There is no love or hate. Can't see no certain state I'm in.
And a fog has laid itself on my heart
Like this misty morning as this cloudy day begins.

Still I wonder should I be afraid
About what's happening and how long has it been - don't know.
Why did come this shadow in my head
Like I have lost my soul, like I'm alive but dead.

As I walk the streets I feel no fear.
Although I notice that there is no feeling anymore.
And I tried to send my mind back to the times
When I was able to live something to the core.

Dark, dark as the grave. My heart is dead.
I'm just a slave to what they've said.
Still I'm alive but I feel dead.

Dark, dark as the grave. My heart is dead.
I'm just a slave to when you call.
Still I'm alive but I must be dead.

Alive but dead
Alive but dead

Darkness, there's darkness everywhere
You gotta help me out of here.
I don't want to stay alive without the capability to feel!

Dark, dark as the grave. My heart is dead.
I'm just a slave to this decay.
Still I'm alive but I feel dead.

Alive but dead
Alive but dead
Can't fill my head
Alive but dead

Dark, dark as the grave. My heart is dead.
I'm just a slave to my disease.
Still I'm alive but I must be dead.

Alive but dead
Alive but dead
Can't feel my head
Alive but dead

2. Black in Mind

I've seen it coming, it's got to be.
No illusions at the turning of the century.
All our wishes - forever free -
All destroyed because somehow we lost the masterkey.

Leaving my dreams far behind,
Got no ambitions in time if only I'm so
Black in mind. When there's no point in making it.
Black in mind. When there's no hope for love. I'm so
Black in mind. When these madmen are wasting it.
Black in mind. I don't want to be sacrificed for
A territorial war. Leave me alone. I'm so black in mind.
Black in mind.

You made me want it. Too blind to see
That all it gave me were illusions of reality.
My eyes got used to the things they've seen.
Now where's the difference between my life and the TV screen.

Leaving my dreams far behind,
Got no ambitions in time if only I'm so
Black in mind. When there's no point in making it.
Black in mind. When there's no hope for love. I'm so
Black in mind. When these madmen are wasting it.
Black in mind. I don't want to be sacrificed for
A territorial war. Leave me alone. I'm so black in mind.
Black in mind. I'm so black in mind.

Leaving my dreams far behind,
Got no ambitions in time if only I'm so
Black in mind. When there's no point in making it.
Black in mind. When there's no hope for love. I'm so
Black in mind. When these madmen are wasting it.
Black in mind. I don't want to be sacrificed for
A territorial war. Leave me alone. I'm so black in mind.
Black in mind. I'm so black in mind.

I don't want to be sacrificed for a territorial war.
No I don't want to be sacrificed for...
Leave me alone. I'm so black in mind.
So black in mind.
I'm so black in mind.
Black in mind.
Masters.

3. Firestorm

(Instrumental)

4. Sent by the Devil

Spirits coming from the mind,
Waking up my deepest horrors,
Capture my thoughts, make me blind.
Weird, 'cause I don't want to see
The abyss of my possibilities.
Scared I can't look away.

It has come to my side.
Sister demon - my bride.

I want you. I need you
And I have set you free.
You're always right behind me
I know the devil's sent you to me.
You want me, you need me,
Now that I've set you free.
Look always right behind you.
You know the devil's sent me to you.

What was started as a longing
Almost in possession now.
It drives me again and again.
Put a light into your window.
Maybe I can find a hold.
I run against myself 'till I find the end.

It has come to my side.
Sister demon - my bride.

I want you. I need you
And I have set you free.
You're always right behind me
I know the devil's sent you to me.
You want me, you need me,
Now that I've set you free.
Look always right behind you.
You know the devil's sent me to you.

Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.

I want you. I need you
And I have set you free.
You're always right behind me
I know the devil's sent you to me.
You want me, you need me,
Now that I've set you free.
Look always right behind you.
You know the devil's sent me to you.

Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.
Sent by the devil.


5. Lost in the Ice

(Instrumental)
 
 
All This Time
(edited version)
Now, as I had a look at you
It took a heartbeat and I knew
That the candle of my life was burning shorter.

You turned me 'round to face myself,
To make me trust in what I am,
Now, after all that I have done it makes me wonder I'm around.

Now the night has gone, better days to come.
All this time I have been afraid, it is not too late...

All this time while we talked my thoughts collided.
All this time I could have seen but I was blind.
All this time...
All this time...

I thought I'd never see the day
That in myself I'd feel this way.
We are the meaning and we know.
Forever different - the same.

Now the night has gone, better days to come.
All this time I have strained my mind, waiting for a sign.

All this time while we talked my thoughts collided.
All this time I could have seen but I was blind.
All this time...

Time is like a river that is running out to sea.
We can't touch the ground, so grab a blade of straw.
If you swim on waves of trust you cannot even drown.
When you hit the shores of love you cannot die...

I thought I'd never see the day
That in myself I'd feel this way.
We are the meaning and we know.
Forever different - the same.

Now the night has gone, better days to come.
All this time I have been afraid, it is not too late...

All this time while we talked my thoughts collided.
All this time I could have seen but I was blind.
All this time while we talked my thoughts collided.
All this time I could have seen but I was blind.
All this time...
All this time...
All this time...
