Track Name: Raven
Raven

Death is a salesman
The goods he offers
Speak to our desires
Better knowing than deceasing
We’re far from losing the illusion of control too tempting

The dam is broken
We sabotaged it
Swirling in the vortex
Hoping we don’t have to face the truth
Cause going down is much easier than swimming back up

For so long I’ve been
Blinded by duty
Finally realizing
The carrier dies with the message
The contents burning through my wings and soul

Can you hear the voice of the raven
Drowning in fire and dreams of war
Lost in a world full of pain and confusion
The raven finally whispers
Nevermore

Tell me Raven, did you see
People die for being free
Did you see hope in their eyes
When they heard them telling lies
Did you see the wasted land
Which they left and never meant
To return back to their home
But to struggle all alone

Fly my Raven through the night
Be my ears and be my sight
Report to me this useless fight
Return to me before first light

Can you hear the voice of the raven
Drowning in fire and dreams of war
Lost in a world full of pain and confusion
The raven finally whispers
Nevermore
Track Name: Torn Sky
Torn Sky

Look into the sky
Clouds are torn by the wind
Like a whisper in the storm
That tells of something you should know
But you cannot understand

When the madman sees the sun
He will tell you of the gods
He will show you the path
But you don’t hear the truth
And you won’t see the light

All you see are the clouds
The clouds that hide the light
There is no sun
There are no gods
All you hear is meaningless
Weird and torn like the sky
Not worth to think about
Or to search behind

Confronted by words far from this world
A truth seems like a damn old lie
Decide or keep rolling the die
Be the messenger of doom
Or the messenger of hope

When the mad man sees the sun
He will tell you of the gods
He will show you the path
But you don’t hear the truth
And you won’t see the light

There’s a path I can’t see
There’s a way that I could go
But it’s easier to stay although
There’s a whisper that I hear
There’s a world up in the sky
There lies my fate which I deny

Like a thief on the run
I feel closer to the night
When the day fades away
I feel closer to the light

Where are the people that I hear
Like a promise undermined
Is it my own fate I fear
Voices dancing in my mind
Track Name: 2 Minutes
2 Minutes

Am I done?
I lie here dying
I lie here all alone
I gave up trying

Give me one more gasp of life
Make this moment worth it all
Give me one more surge of strength
Give me just two minutes

Drill my heart
Pour in the iron
For a fire in my soul
That’ll keep me flying

This is one more gasp of life
Make this moment worth it all
This is one more surge of strength
All in just two minutes
Track Name: Memories
Memories

Smell the blood
Hear the moan
Another plunge into the unknown
My heartbeat slow and strong

Like a machine my body puts itself in hot pursuit
All my systems are set to engage
But charging forward there’s an image blocking my intent
It’s interfering calmly with my rage

You were my blossom of hope
In my nights of cruelty
My shelter and sunrise
You were blind to my curse
Didn’t know and didn’t see
I saw bliss glow in your eyes

Like a rock
Inside my chest
Your image fights with my unrest
My rage starts faltering

Then there’s a noise that puts my instincts back in overdrive
They reconquer all control
All that’s left of you: a fading echo in my mind
The darkness spreading from my black soul

You were my blossom of hope
In my nights of cruelty
My shelter and sunrise
And when you realized my fate
I prayed you would understand
But I saw fear scream from your eyes
And all went dark

You were my blossom of hope
In my nights of cruelty
My shelter and sunrise
And when you realized my fate
I prayed you would understand
But I saw fear scream from your eyes

Fear screamed from your eyes
It’s still screaming in my heart
But I cannot let it go
And now I’m old
And now I’m lost
And I still hide from everyone
And I will never let you go
Never let you go
Track Name: November Dream
November Dream

Good morning world
Rise and shine
Good morning life
What will you bring
Good morning sky
Good morning clouds
Good morning sun
Good morning me

Here I stand
Yet not alone
Good morning love
Is this the day we die
Can you hear the bombs
Can you hear the guns

If you just close your eyes
And close your mind
Where will you be
Escape this frozen world
For a second
And never return
Stay in your dream
Within the warmth of your thoughts
Leave everything behind
And nothing can harm you anymore

Good morning war
What will you do
Within seconds
Weapons will crush
Metal, life and stone

Here I stand
Yet not alone
Good morning love
Is this the day we die
Can you hear the bombs
Can you hear the guns

Dust covers the land
Bombs explode
We will break through
Just you and me
Bullets can’t harm us anymore
We will be free

When this night is over
There will be nothing left
And we won’t wake up
But live in this November Dream
Track Name: Thunderbird
Thunderbird

Fly away
To the clouds
Air is hot the fields dried out
The sun is burning – tear him down
The happy people cheering, laughing
Heated souls – go let them drown

Fly away
Bring the storm
Go and smash the gates of heaven
Go and let the shadows rise
Go ascend into the downpour
Go ascend and sing your tune

My wing beats crescendos
I soar in rain I bring the storm
You hear me
I’m roaring
I make the heavens fall
The sky lights divided
The bright ray of my wings
Shades of my body
Thunderbird

Fly away
Leave the flood
Sky is crying, air is singing
Water dancing, thunder growling
Plants are seeded, air is cleaned
The sun is sleeping in your wake

My wing beats crescendos
I soar in rain I bring the storm
You hear me
I’m roaring
I make the heavens fall
The sky lights divided
The bright ray of my wings
Shades of my body
Thunderbird
Track Name: From Heaven
From Heaven

The image shows no way back
Don’t know what your eyes can see
If I had you close to me
It’s okay – no need to regret

I’ve been down that road before
Desire flows easily
And just like it used to be
It’s okay – cause little has changed

Do you still dream of what we’ve lost
When we descend from heaven
The worst of me – your eyes won’t see
Until eternity’s done

Our thoughts were free when we were young
But in this world we fell apart
Until the last word from my lips
Will finally stay in your heart

All the chances we missed
No wrong time we didn’t meet
As slow as our hearts now beat
It’s okay – no need for blame

So I stay here and wait
I know that you are somewhere
Can’t blame you, I know you care
It’s okay – but life is too long

Do you still dream of what we’ve lost
When we descend from heaven
The worst of me – your eyes won’t see
Until eternity’s done

Our thoughts were free when we were young
But in this world we fell apart
Until the last word from my lips
Will finally stay in your heart

Now I head for the east where the sun climbs the sky
Raise my arms, breathe the light, I won’t run, I can fly
As dusk falls in the west, darkness shrouded in threats
For what was and what is, it’s as bad as it gets

Do you still dream of what we’ve lost
When we descend from heaven
The worst of me – your eyes won’t see
Until eternity’s done

Our thoughts were free when we were young
But in this world we fell apart
Until the last word from my lips
Will finally stay in your heart
Track Name: Whispers
Whispers

The mighty have fallen
The strong have passed by
Bye bye
All empires crumbled
What’s left, only earth and the sky and

Whispers
You need to slow your pulse
And tune your ear
Cause they’re just
Whispers
Of a withered heart and
Unconscious fear

Every plant has its seed
Every river has its spring
Every crime had a need
That turned into a painful sting
To share with everyone

Let men afraid
Lead us to our utter doom
Let blossoms fade
And die in the darkened room
In the cry unheard
In the love deferred
In the righteous scorn
And the nightmare’s born

Now I will crush everyone
My will be done
Or you can say goodbye
So bow to my every whim
I am your king
You’ll love me
Or you’ll die

Let men afraid
Lead us to our utter doom
Let blossoms fade
And die in the darkened room
In the cry unheard
In the shame conferred
In the heartless word
In the love deferred

Whispers
You need to slow your pulse
And tune your ear
Cause they’re just
Whispers
Of a withered heart and
Unconscious fear

The mighty have fallen
The strong have passed by
Bye-bye
All empires crumbled
With them millions died

Let men afraid
Lead us to our utter doom
Let blossoms fade
And die in the darkened room
In the cry unheard
In the shame conferred
In the heartless word
In the love deferred
Track Name: Dungeon
Dungeon

Marching along
Through mud covered floors
I survey the mansion I’ve made
Carefully built with my own hands

I toil, I sweat, I clench my jaw shut
The walls must be strong and be covered in smut
Cause you are my nemesis, you are my bane
It’s what the walls say and it drives me insane

(It’s all their fault)
Drive me insane
(Life is out to get me)
Brick by brick by brick by brick
(They did it on purpose)
Get out of my brain
(They have to pay)
I will strengthen the chokehold until you leave

Crawling along
On cold and hard stone
I survey the prison I’ve made
Carefully crafted with my rage

I toil, I sweat, I feed on the dust
The bars must be strong and be covered in rust
Cause you are my enemy, you are my curse
It’s what the cage says and it makes me feel worse

(It’s all their fault)
Makes me feel worse
(Life is out to get me)
Stick by stick by stick by stick
(They did it on purpose)
Stop this it hurts
(They have to pay)

I will strengthen the chokehold until you leave
Strengthen the chokehold until you leave
I will strengthen the chokehold
So you won’t leave
Track Name: Masquerade
Masquerade

Thousand shadows
Chase the light
See the darkness
Vanish and consume

Put on your empty faces
See the cobwebs shimmer
Diamonds catch the moonlight
As ivory takes life

Tired bones shake off their sleep
Silence melts away
A thousand grinning faces
Don their gleaming masks

Dreaming of a distant past, as they weave through the dust
And they dance this final masquerade
Listen to the eerie strains, it’s a symphony of gloom
As they live this final masquerade
Dreaming of a distant past, as they weave through the dust
(And their masks gleam – bones a pearly white)
And they dance this final masquerade
Listen to the eerie strains, it’s a symphony of gloom
(They glide and turn – they spin and twist)
As they live this final masquerade

And they dance through flick’ring candles
Clothed in robes of crimson deep
Friends and foes – now all are equal
Their eyes gleam with pure delight

Dreaming of a distant past, as they weave through the dust
And they dance this final masquerade
Listen to the eerie strains, it’s a symphony of gloom
As they live this final masquerade
Dreaming of a distant past, as they weave through the dust
(And their masks gleam – bones a pearly white)
And they dance this final masquerade
Listen to the eerie strains, it’s a symphony of gloom
(They glide and turn – they spin and twist)
As they live this final masquerade

Yet slowly – they falter – their footsteps dragging in the dust
The music – it winds down – becomes a tearing screeching moan
Their splendour – and finery – fades back to rags and crumbling bones
And finally – so slowly – they drift into an endless sleep

Dreaming of a distant past, as they weave through the dust
And they dance this final masquerade
Listen to the eerie strains, it’s a symphony of gloom
As they live this final masquerade
Dreaming of a distant past, as they weave through the dust
(And their masks gleam – bones a pearly white)
And they dance this final masquerade
Listen to the eerie strains, it’s a symphony of gloom
(They glide and turn – they spin and twist)

As they live this final masquerade
(So they dance their waltz of death)
Track Name: Du Bist
Du Bist

Kälte ist der warme Hauch der mich unter Dir fixiert
Schweiß und Tränen sind Dein Lohn auf meiner Haut
Schläge, Tritte haben meinen Leib verziert
Mein kaltes altes Ich hast du mit Deinen Lenden neu erbaut

Sieh die Lichter glühen, ihr Feuer lässt die Zeit verrinnen
Wunden schließen sich, Narben heilen, doch nicht von innen
Die Nächte gehen, und alles muss einst enden
Wie’s auch Liebe tut – der Vorhang ist Gefallen, das Spiel vorbei

Siehst Du mich, wenn wir im Regen untergehen
Fühlst Du mich, es tut nicht weh, es tötet mich
Spürst Du mich, mein Herz ist viel zu schlecht für dich
Hörst Du mich, wenn mein Schrei in Dir verhallt

Kannst Du uns sehen, wie wir im Regen untergehen
Kannst Du uns fühlen, wie wir uns langsam töten
Kannst Du uns spüren, wenn die Worte uns erschlagen
Kannst Du uns hören, wenn unser Schrei im Nichts verhallt

Du bist eine Nacht, die nicht verklingt
Du bist eine Macht, die mich durchdringt
Du bist eine Woge, die mich trägt und mich nicht mehr loslässt
Du bist eine Angst, die mich beschwingt
Du bist eine Lust, die mich bezwingt
Du bist eine Schönheit und dein Blick wird mich ganz besiegen

Bam! in the face
Fall’n from grace
You’ve lost the race
It’s time to die

Through with all
Dropped the ball
You proceed to fall
No last good-byes

Darkness fails as my last friend
Every step is a dead end
Seems I’m my worst enemy
No way out
And I can’t let go

There’s a pin
Small and thin
Hidden deep within
Itching in your soul

No way back
You’re on track
You’ve found the hack
It’s time to roll

The veil is thin
One last tear
To find within
Waiting there

You’ll give me hope
I’ll give you strength
You’ll give me trust
I’ll go the length
Give up yourself
I’ll set you free
Your Avatar

Just unleash me
And you will see
There’s nothing else that you would be
Just let go
And I’ll rise

Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!

Darkness failed as my last friend
Every step was a dead end
Seemed I was my enemy
No way out
But I did let go

The veil is thin
One last tear
To find within
Waiting there

You’ll give me hope
I’ll give you strength
You’ll give me trust
I’ll go the length
Give up yourself
I’ll set you free

Track Name: Ghost Ship
Ghost Ship

The horizon is gone
No more foothold for me
Just floating around in a field of debris

There was a shift
Now I’m out of place
I’m floating at sea but there’s no wind in my face

It’s gone
It’s leaving me

Heigh-yay heigh-yay
Is anyone left here did anyone stay
Heigh-yay heigh-yay
The ship I was on is now sailing away

Now the pieces are gone
Since I stopped trying to flee
And islands I used to feel, now I can see

So while the waves crash
I lose all my fear
Cause there’s nowhere to go to, I’m already here

It’s gone
It’s leaving me

Heigh-yay heigh-yay
Is anyone left here did anyone stay
Heigh-yay heigh-yay
The ship I was on is now sailing away

Heigh-yay heigh-yay
Eyes staring back but there’s no one to see
Heigh-yay heigh-yay
It finally unravels: the mystery of ‘me’
