Falling
The massacre of angels in heaven has begun
The black clouds are moving, covering the sun
Screaming and torture as an echo in the wind
Satan has his lust and the last sun
Jesus is next, deceived once again
Nails are heavy, faith won't kill the pain

The whole world is falling down with hate

Now the god has taken the part of Judas
Broke the ten commandments and sold the crown in shame
As a slave crawls like us, with a number, no name
Madness is the name of this absurd game
There's the son of god hanging once again
Surrounded by the flames of hell

The whole world is falling down with hate
The good ones will take it to their graves

Third day is not for resurrection at all
So the tale won't be the same anymore

The whole world is falling down with hate
The good ones will take it to their graves

The whole world is falling down with hate
The good ones will take it to their graves
 
 
Dream & Religion
Lost in the crush under the rain
Alone in this world unknown
Looking for a way back home trying to forget this pain
- Drifted too far away, boat's too rusted to sail

Standing on the edge - to the edge they return

Waiting for an angel with the answer
To take him under her wings for a moment
But he is too deep in the darkness,
Where light does not reach and the angels don't seek

Soul searching sun but hand for a gun to end his days

I have my dream to keep me alive
Religion I sold my soul to
I have my dream to keep me alive
Religion I sold my soul to

I have my dream to keep me alive
Religion I sold my soul to
I have my dream to keep me alive
Religion I sold my soul to
I have my dream to keep me alive
Religion I sold my soul to
I have my dream to keep me alive
Religion I sold my soul to
 
 
Apathy
Trapped inside his mind
Dying spirit cries shackled inside the dead man
The fallen angels try to fly - looking for
Brothers and sisters from their sanctuaries

Sinister regret, thoughts about the end of the world
Will never leave his head. The messenger is lost, too much pain it costs
If he looses control on the edge of this earth

And one of the freaks of society, pretending sane deep in the apathy
Pilgrim's heart is cold, funeral of his soul celebrated a long time ago

Cyclone in his mind, he is already blind
To see the truth and future under the shell of the man,
Rage is rising and no one knows
But the eyes can only tell what is going on

And one of the freaks of society, pretending sane deep in the apathy
Pilgrim's heart is cold, funeral of his soul celebrated a long time ago

On the way to the tomb, drowning his sorrow with his demons
Who are mocking and spitting his eye but one thing we know for sure
God had his day off when this man was lost into the world

And one of the freaks of society
Pretending sane deep in the apathy
Pilgrim's heart is cold
Funeral of his soul celebrated a long time ago
 
 
Back from the Days
Do we ever give any thoughts for the heroes of our days
Who fought for freedom and future
Prayed in the dark - and rain at night washed their tears away
Saved a wounded man, turned towards the bullet rain
And took the last step on our free land

Souls are gone - in the unknown graves, who brings them back from the days?
Left in the past with other braves - fought for us, against fear, the machines
We don't know how it feels to be hand in hand with death

Guns blazed on the enemy line, smoke filled the sky
He knew for sure there was someone else
Who watched the moon but not through the dust and smoke
Far away from battlefields praying for a wish,
Gazing up to the stars

Souls are gone - in the unknown graves, who brings them back from the days?
Left in the past with other braves - fought for us, against fear, the machines
We don't know how it feels to be hand in hand with death

The whisper beyond the grave in her dream
- Save your tears and your worst fear

Souls are gone - in the unknown graves, who brings them back from the days?
Left in the past with other braves - fought for us, against fear, the machines
We don't know how it feels to be hand in hand with death
 
 
The Traitor
Your sky is crying for someone, clouds hanging low
And god plays sad and innocent for drowning men in tears of sorrow
I think he's enjoying the people's worry
And laughing for the whole tragic story
Pointing down like a king to slaves,
Ending lives, sending them to their graves

But when ashes are scattered and wind taken his own
- It took a little piece to the gates,
Into the timeless place, far away from there
Where some stranger has committed a sin
And stolen a breath in the night, it happens again.

And why do all the good ones meet their fate too soon?
If god's deciding who's breathing and who is not
Take them to your room -
All the dregs of society and end their days, send them to eternity
I hate to see the news everyday
How some child was born to die, in vain

But when ashes are scattered and wind taken his own
- It took a little piece to the gates,
Into the timeless place, far away from there
Where some stranger has committed a sin
And stolen a breath in the night, it happens again.
 
 
October
Suddenly from the light of life to the darkness, swallowing pride and joy
On the wave of my thoughts sailing lost and cold - this lonely boy
Sinking to his inner world leaving this earth million miles behind
Crossing the borderline, time is not running on this side, not on this side

Night brings vapour where the spirits move
I'm alone with the echoes

I've sailed the sea of loneliness drifting in timelessness
Crossed the ocean, been at the mercy of the waves
Seen the beauty of dawn, admired it after storm
Felt the joy of rebirth and could smile again

Crawling back to the land of the living from silence of the tomb
But the black clouds return, leaving pale and fragile - this broken man

Night brings vapour where the spirits move
I'm alone with the echoes

I've sailed the sea of loneliness drifting in timelessness
Crossed the ocean, been at the mercy of the waves
Seen the beauty of dawn, admired it after storm
Felt the joy of rebirth and could smile again
 
 
Daytime Theatre
Night has fallen killing joy and light
The doors are locked keeping the fear inside
Apprentices preparing for a bedtime story
Saying their prayers, making the sign of the cross

Kneels down to pray for better days
Eyes shut he's searching for peace of mind

Beneath the eyes of god
Lust getting loose changing the tears into blood
In these holy rooms,
Current of sin raging, trembling walls and windows

The screams fell silent wiping the tears from their eyes
The demons crawled back to the place where they arose
The morning came bringing light and glory
But the devil dances again when the nigh ? is falling

The darkness covers the temple
The rooms are getting cold and whole underworld rises

Beneath the eyes of god
Lust getting loose changing the tears into blood
In these holy rooms,
Current of sin raging, trembling walls and windows

And sun is up again, daytime theatre for believers
But when curtain falls and candlelight gives up to the wind
The whole underworld rises
 
 
Doors of Resurrection
She's standing at the gates with a one way ticket to the other side,
Empty gaze in her eyes.
No kiss goodbye at all. A suitcase full of memories of the past
And three little words unsaid - and why?

For some crime she did not commit before she died?
For little sins she did not confess in daylight?

A bench rusted by tears reminds her of sad years
Of a dark world and familiar faces
She's waiting for the ride, the riders of the last day
Who are taking her to the doors of resurrection - and why?

For some crime she did not commit before she died?
For little sins she did not confess in daylight?

She's leaving this world...

For some crime she did not commit before she died?
For little sins she did not confess in daylight?
 
 
From Sunrise to Sunset
My last sunrise, no more sunsets for me
I can bury my good heart with relief, I'm free
I can smile, taste the tear drop from my eye
Waiting for the breath of wind to give wings for my soul

I have a feeling, this is my day. Caressing shine and rain.
Farewell, this life couldn't last
My heart is weak, the reason is not far to seek

The dream of the end
Before the journey begins cold enters the room,
Then give me the last dance with death

My breathing is heavy, soul reaching for the sky
I've nothing to lose, everything is inside me
Golden memories make me feel alright
Waiting for the moment when my love is by my side

The dream of the end
Before the journey begins cold enters the room,
Then give me the last dance with death

My last sunrise, no more sunsets for me
I can bury my good heart with relief, I'm free
I can smile, taste the tear drop from my eye
Waiting for the breath of wind to give wings for my soul

The dream of the end
Before the journey begins cold enters the room,
Then give me the last dance with death
 
 
Freak
(by Bruce Dickinson.)
He rides the wave, a spiral slave
The Prince of Darkness plays his games
You're hypnotized, under velvet skies
He breathes the red wind 'cross your eyes
Who leads you to the dark secret?
Who leads you to the dark secret?

Your life is lost, your soul is damned
But it feels too good to make a stand
Bad is bad, but this is worse
Let judgment come, you love this curse

When you look at man you're like a god
Swimming in the tide of life
Somersault into the flood
Washes you away

Who leads you to the dark secret?
Who leads you to the dark secret?

Who is your mistress that leads you to the dark secret?
Who is your mistress who leads you to the dark secret?

Who is your mistress that leads you to the dark secret?
Who is your mistress who leads you to the dark secret?
Who is your mistress that leads you to the dark secret?
Who is your mistress who leads you to the dark secret?

Who leads you to the dark secret?
Who leads you to the dark secret?
Who leads you to the dark secret?
Who leads you to the dark secret?
