Raven 05:12
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

Torn Sky 05:11
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

2 Minutes 02:00
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

Memories 05:01
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

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

Thunderbird 04:51
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

From Heaven 04:34
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

Whispers 04:57
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

Dungeon 04:16
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

Masquerade 05:20
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)

Du Bist 06:23
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

Avatar 04:51
Avatar 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 Your Avatar

Ghost Ship 05:36
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’
