Track Name: In the dark
All seems fine though I'm feeling scared
The velvet silence and pouring rain
Mysterious shadows reach my heart
The whispers of phantoms echo in the dark
I'm falling apart
Into the night

I feel so alone, chills go down my spine
The hands try to get me, fear reigns in my mind
I'm losing my senses and can't even breathe
I struggle to tell the truth from the dream
Too many nightmares and cold sleepless nights

The slave in your head refuses to fight
You're damned and forsaken, too weak to get out
The swamp of your horror is eating you up
You're finally defeated, there's no turning back

Too many nightmares and cold sleepless nights
Out of your body comes in the dark
Track Name: Animal
I hear it’s calling me
Pulling me in the dark
I can’t escape this no
Keeps me awake at night
Killing the flame within me

I live in twilight zone
Nobody knows my name
Nobody feels the pain
I’m fighting with at night

Full moon is in the sky
Seduces me and wakes
The hunger in my vains
The hunger in my vains

I can’t control no more
No time, no fear, no life
I can’t control myself
No time, no fear, no life

This torture never ends
Immortal life I live
This is my destiny
Let me unleash this force
I need to break the course

Save me from endless doom
Should I stay in a cage
Captured deep underground
Suffering from loneliness

Hunted like an animal
There’s no place to run
There’s no time to waste
It’s too late too late

I can’t control no more
No time, no fear, no life
I can’t control myself
No time, no fear, no life
Track Name: The Queen
When she approaches no one dares to breathe
The golden robe, black-painted eyes
Her graceful moves intimidate her serfs
Nobody objects the Queen of the Nile

A nod of finger and they're kneeling down
But people's riot slowly grows
It doesn't matter if she wears a crown
She reigns dominions, not their souls!

I am the one who gives you protection
Just obey me and you will be fine
You mean no more than a pile of sand
With one my wish I can make you decline...

You don't need to worry, just tune to my voice
All I demand is to follow my rules
But you still lick my boots by your own choice

Hail the Queen, bow down!

Just follow my orders and you'll be okay
Don't even try to think on your own
Otherwise you all will be slain...

Hail the Queen, bow down!
Hail the Queen, bow down!

I wash my hands in your blood
Your fear and pain belong to me
I'm your defender and I am your god

Your destiny is carved in stone, no trial, no judgment
Your time will come with no trial, no judgment
Track Name: Reborn
Fed up struggling to break free
I am drowning in the sea
The bottom is beyond my tired feet

Silent voices reach my head
No one hears my screaming pledge
I must face the painful darkness on my own

Watch me now, out of the night I am reborn
Don't try to hide, your anger leads me to the point of no return
Track Name: The dusk
Can't hear a sound, can't tell the colours, the cold flames leave only ashes
The world of numbness is where I live in and wasted are all my chances
I want to break free, feel sun on my face, but chill stormed into my senses
The days of brave dreams and innocent sighs, they have been gone forever...

Save me, don't let me fall, the dusk closes around me
Just hear my voice wherever you are

From the depths of madness I fight to wake up, but conscience still refuses to start over
The vivid pictures of your fragility couldn't have ever been closer
I want to break free, feel sun on my face, but chill stormed into my senses
The days of brave dreams and innocent sighs, they have been gone forever...
Track Name: Endless road
Driving fast, misty shades, it's afterglow
Miles away from you, I feel so alone and cold

Blurry views, the smudgy world outside
Your face in my mind is all I've got
(it's bound to last...)

Save me, you are the reason
Your touch starts to fade in my weary head
Feels like my journey is endless

Pouring rain lifts your voice, it's deja vu
Sudden crash, bright lights at my face
I am back on the road to you
Track Name: How many times
Do you remember that day
When you saw the world
Just the way it is
Sad and without hope
Suddenly you just woke up
Couldn't sleep no more
Though you heard somebody say
That's the way it goes

How many times
You've been seen as someone foul?
How many times
You've been trying to make things right
Now is the time
To forget about those days
Now is the time
Show them all your inner grace

It is really meaningless
Someone else wants to decide
What you want and what you need
About all your dreams at night
There's no need to be docile
You don't have to live like that
Don't believe in all they say
Try to live your life at last
Track Name: The Head II
Sun in the sky, stars far above
Cold wind brings the heat
Whispering sand, jasmin scent
Falling insane

I try to hide from phony friends
Bright smiles mirror frowns (albo anger)
Lonely steps in the crowd
I'm falling down

How can I tell the truth from fiction? (albo fable)
Reflections penetrate my mnd
Mirages start to take me over
Is it my head, am I alive?
Track Name: Stand up and fight
Once again fear and pain stab your heart
Hopelessness and empty days have left a mark
Tired hands and headache define your mood,
You just close your eyes, believe in lies, but there’s still a chance,
your very chance

Can’t help falling deeper into the numbness and decay,
Controlled by delusions, you’re feeling to fade away

Still recall what was wrong, rewind the film
You rule a maze of empty hands, the lights go dim
You wish you could stop thinking, cut off your mind
Get your strength just one more time, stand up and fight, you’ll make it right!

Can’t help falling deeper into the numbness and decay,
Controlled by delusions you’re doing the best you can

Yet your sun gave up to shine, your shadow slipped away
Happiness and innocence have gone astray
Now’s the time to make your mind, you will not fail
Don’t need to fight, stand in the light,
Let the wounds be healed, life’s becoming real.

Open up your heart and
Let your senses guide you

Strive to win a battle against the numbness and decay,
Confront your demons, call for a better day.

Strive to win a battle against the numbness and decay,
Confront your demons, call for a better day.
Track Name: Don't look back
Time runs out, your aim is far away
Your chance is getting thinner, it's never or today
Same old hang-ups distract you from the path
you need to understand your life is in your hands

Don't look back, stop wasting time on woes
Race has started, the counting has begun
You're on your own and this is not a game
Your high spirit will never be the same

Brave enough to dream about escape
Still you are scared to death to deal with steps you take
Desperate to make up for time you've lost
You carve for buying more, no matter what it costs
Track Name: Fear
Fear, staying with you forever
Twisting in, getting better
Deep inside your soul.

Try not to fail, but it's stronger
You can't see any longer
The brave, confident man.

Severe pain, shows up again
whenever you want to start and live.
Get ready, the blood boils in your veins
Fight back this mad, hard to stand dismay.

Fate played a joke, bent your head down
crushed you down and made you bowed
Didn't give a chance

But fight, battle harder and harder
Bring back all living forces,
Get a grip, scream aloud.

An amazing impulse pushes you through
There’s a key inside your mind,
Open your hearth, you’re free!

But now keep the faith, wake your feelings
Be real a man, stop fleeting
like a leaf in the wind.

Bear with this fear, you can tame it,
control and embrace it
Welcome back to the game.
