Vanished in the merciless night sky In nothingness I go insane Like a wizard, who begins casting his spell I open my eyes and swallow that dark [Chorus:] My eyes will see instead of your blind eyes My soul will feel instead of your dead soul The darkness for you is the only one savior You'll never forget my dark visions Hear the cries of the graveless children They pray for somebody to save their souls Mother of misery, you know that I can do it I keep you children now, I swallow that dark [Chorus] [Lead: Staffa] Listen to the silence of my dishonest lips Feel the power of hatred, look into my unreal world I'm the new beginning The end of the past religion I'm the second messiah Lord of the dreams and confusion My soul is like an empty room I cannot see without your eyes Vanished in the merciless night sky In nothingness I go insane Like a wizard, who begins casting his spell I open my eyes and swallow that dark [Chorus]

Walking slowly Through the darkest of mists Unreal is my trip On the alley of the dreams Lost in nightmares, causing pain Cursed in my sleep Searching for my shadowed self Soul without own face [Chorus:] On my trip to find myself I roam I'm walking, lone walking Where are the secrets that I need to know Dreamburied and scary Outraging common sense Withstanding my fears Wandering in my sleep Minutes pass like years [Chorus] How I came here Who brought me there Going nowhere Lonely and scared Unreal is my trip On the alley of the dreams Lost in nightmares, causing pain Cursed in my sleep Searching for my shadowed self Soul without own face Look into my empty eyes Mirror of the soul Caves without a spark or flame Where feelings die unborn [Lead: Deimoz] [Lead: Staffa] [Lead: Deimoz] [Lead: Staffa] [Lead: Deimoz]

I'm so confused now Everything is helter-skelter Rain pours through my feelings People are going crazy Nature is feeling fear What about my personal life Hey god show me the way To the real satisfaction [Chorus:] The hopes are growing fast Future looks so bright My faith is fresh again The light is here now It's five o'clock in the morning My breath can't breathe now My body's in a shock Life's bottle is disgusting I'm so confused now The down is breaking over The confusion is crashing It's a new kind of religion [Chorus] Hey Lord show me the way To the real satisfaction Give me a golden chance once again I look for the reason of human suicide It's turning into a religion I'm so confused now Everything is helter-skelter Rain pours through my feelings People are going crazy Nature is feeling fear What about my personal life Hey Lord show me the way To a new kind of religion [Chorus] [Lead: Deimoz] NEW KIND... OF... RELIGION!

Take a look into my eyes Did you see reflection of the mourn inside Did you know how the pain overturns the soul Would you carry that bitterness all life long [Chorus:] You can't just take a break and leave Until the pain inside still breathes And there is no relief, and if you're longing for the end Just spit it out, yeah, go ahead! Open your soul for this pain A bleeding, never ending wound The pain makes your heart beating faster This pain, who's like cancer in your throat You chose the simplest way of thinking You were afraid to look inside And to extinguish the pain's ember By squeezing it with bare hands [Chorus] Alas, you fate is to be sentenced Don't ever think of turning back It is the pain -- the burning ember Who's coloring the life in black [Lead: Deimoz] Open your soul for this pain A bleeding, never ending wound The pain makes your heart beating faster This pain, who's like cancer in your throat

Here the sunrise is black And there is nothing strange in this When my eyes are dead I can't see the real things Evil can't be good And good always wins Where is the truth This is not the truth [Chorus:] There is no light I can see There is no path I can walk How can I live in this hell It's a life without sense Now I've lost everything I'm dead but I live All I want is the End The Sunrise is black [x2] I'm standing on the edge Trying to find my last hope I have lost the will to live Now I'm tired and I know: The sunrise...is black The Sunrise is black [x2] [Chorus] Now I look into the eyes of the dead Without fear in my heart I know that she never lies to me, never... never! [Chorus]
6.
The war is a way of survival The way we have chosen so far By taking the guts of your rival You know that you tear him apart [Chorus:] The life is a moment of fury Death is a personal hell Strength is a weapon to carry You're loosing your anger to dwell So close is the time of the glory Your blood is starting to boil Awaiting the victory trumpets And smelling the bloodied soil [Chorus] After the battle you are standing alone With no feelings and covered with scars Now you realize what is the meaning Of putting your life on a card By night you're staying awaken The sleep always passes you since You've returned from this dreadful experience Embalmed in visions so grim [Spoken:] The sense of life now is different Its colour has changed to black The light of the days is so distant But nobody noticed its lack

The Heart 06:40
Sometimes I feel my burning chest As if somethings eating me inside With thousands of nails It scratches my veins How can I fight with such a pain [Chorus:] Sometimes I smell my boiling blood Which fills my eyes with screaming tears I drown in the sea of my own fears When my heart makes them real It beats inside of me and and every stroke Passes through my body and smashes my soul But how can you feel the taste of life Without the sorrow of the heartache which bitters [Chorus] I know that every time I'm asking for help It never leaves me to be weak And when I stand against my fears It always tells me what to feel Sometimes I cannot find the truth So I just look inside of me And ask my heart which way to go It never lies to me I know [Chorus:] Someday the pain will stop for sure But then I'll die it's so simple ironic I have chosen my heart to be the only judge Cause all the pain and joy are passing through its forge
8.
A tortured world I am in With no care of what is within My mind and soul are loaded no relief no more There is no way to take me to the core They spy in me Spy inside of me They cry for me Die inside of me [Chorus:] Inside me is everything I owe Inside me to life and death no more Inside me is where they make me crawl Inside me I will gain up my fall Keep all grief inside Away from everybody's lies There's no regret for the moments lost Inside the shell of the mourning host [Chorus] In this world I live in I won't share no secret dream I feel no more none of my human senses Against my fall I will defend [Chorus]
9.
Can you feel the coming darkness when the ocean of sorrow Swallows your mind Do you hear the sigh of madness growing fast In your precious silence [Chorus:] I've always know that the loneliness Creates the sadness I've seen people's eyes searching for the meaning of life They are breaking through my heart Always asking me for help What can I do When they give me their pain That's why I built these walls Between me and the outside world I denied everything The outside world brought me here [Chorus] I'm hiding my memories deep inside of me I'm closing my eyes, I will never see The darkness helps me to be free And loneliness is the only friend Who will never betray me Is it worth to break the walls To merge myself with the outside world Is it worth to see the light And after that to hate my life I can't live with so much pain I prefer the darkness of the lonely man Instead of the light -- people's pain
10.
My heart is the place Where darkness is born And most of my days Are just memories by now [Chorus:] On a distant shore The place where I am resting Sometimes I let them out Following the whispers of the night [Lead: Deimoz] Terrible pain is chasing me My exhausted eyes turn to smoke Measuring the time with my shadow That is creeping like a snakeskin I became one with the anger I can't look at the sky [Chorus] Gazing at that growing mirror Who's shaking under my feet I'm creeping through the branches of the darkness Chasing the daylight with heavy rain I raised my iced hand Like a frozen mountain's top The clouds are coming And I obey the deadly coldness [Chorus] [Lead: Deimoz]
11.
Deadly Dance 05:14
My hands are stretched in the dark I keep my eyes open for you The mind is infected with pain And makes my heart terribly bleed [Chorus:] I'm standing cold like a gravestone Waiting for thee, dark harvester Waiting to fly away, so far away To the eternal oblivion My soul begins to freeze I became aware of your cold breath My hands are opened to embrace The dark spirit who's coming for you [Chorus] Visions and shadows now is what I see Nothing else has left for me But my heart is resting, it is calm I'm feeling nothing but indifference The deadly dance is setting my soul free And it is flying in the dark Flying away with the Dweller Swallowed eternally by the blessed darkness [Chorus]
