01. The Damnation Game

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Forever cursed by this game, he who plays with sin
Incantations summoned up our creations

We're players cast in this tale, believe it
stranger than fiction
This justice thunders our condemnation

Falling into innocence by a shadow's kiss
He speaks what mortals dare to say, will he betray?

If you dare play the game - your descent preordained
from their fiery thrones screaming,
cursing your name
On the terror it breeds - breathing fire and gree
watch him jest as you bleed...
Screaming enter the Damnation Game

We can not keep our heads clear,
or our tongues from evil
by this sword, certain death at our own hands

To have no wants is divine - untrue!
platinum waves tainted gold, we can only watch from
the shores

Falling into innocence by a shadow's kiss
He speaks what mortals dare to say, will he betray?

If you dare play the game - your descent preordained
from their fiery thrones screaming,
cursing your name
On the terror it breeds - breathing fire and gree
watch him jest as you bleed...
Screaming enter the Damnation Game

[Solo]

If you dare play the game -
your descent preordained
from their fiery thrones screaming,
cursing your name
On the terror it breeds - breating fire and greed
watch him laugh as you bledd...
Screaming enter the Damnation Game

[Solo]

If you dare play the game - your descent preordained
from their fiery thrones screaming,
cursing your name
On the terror it breeds - breathing fire and gree
watch him jest as you bleed...
Screaming enter the Damnation Game


02. Dressed To Kill

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Dark desires of the cynic queen
laugher echoes her name
He feels his breath decay

Opens the past to an empty page
Watch his life drain away

Arrival - dressed to kill, scarlet memories
Watching and waiting for curtains to fall
Arrival - dressed to kill, it's a tragedy
Could you feel sympathy or pain?

In a desolate room, the canvas bleeds
He slides through his chair
rendered prince of fools

Dire thoughts of her begotten son,
Watch his life drain away
Watch his life fade away

Arrival - dressed to kill, scarlet memories
Watching and waiting for curtains to fall
Arrival - dressed to kill, it's a tragedy
Could you feel sympathy or pain?

[Solo]

Arrival - dressed to kill, scarlet memories
Watching and waiting for curtains to fall
Arrival - dressed to kill, it's a tragedy
Could you feel sympathy or pain?


03. The Edge Of Forever

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Pictures of what used to be,
lie in pieces on the floor
finds himself in an empty room,
her voice calls out to him
he opens the door, but there's no one there
no one there...

Draped in a silken glow of moonlight
through the mist I see, a lucid cathedral appears to me.
pray for a glimpse of touch of sunlight
chain our shadow down, night settles in, my love,
you never make a sound.

Love is flowing from my fingertips
never in control of this domain.
All around me, my essence lay
watch the vultures circle through the pouring rain.

Close your eyes - and try to remember
discordant lullabies of days gone by.
Close your eyes - on the edge of forever
a chance to dream, fast asleep your nightmare ends.

As the walls converge around me.
castles crumbling down, everything is not
as it seems to be.

Once more, I fells I must return
no more will my soul burn. Dawn breaks the ground,
my love,
and with it you fade away...

Close your eyes - and try to remember
discordant lullabies of days gone by.
Close your eyes - on the edge of forever
a chance to dream, fast asleep your nightmare ends.

[solo]

Close your eyes - and try to remember
discordant lullabies of days gone by.
Close your eyes - on the edge of forever
a chance to dream, fast asleep your nightmare ends.

My love never dies...


04. Savage Curtain

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Besiege me not for what I am
a man with intent in the Devil's den
for I know not what to believe
yet mad I am not in trust I deceive
Radical alterations in my temper
grows worse day by day
I will offer you extreme opposition

Savage curtain closes in on you
but I do grieve the evident
behind this illusion

The fury of demons possessing me
my fiendish corruption will fill my need
every reason to fulfill my deed.
Have we not a perpetual inclination
to violate that witch is law merely
because we know it is to be?

Savage curtain closes in on you
but I do grieve the evident
behind this illusion

[Solo]

Savage curtain closes in on you
but I do grieve the evident
behind this illusion


05. Whispers

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
When all the angels cry
sadness reigns upon us all
white doves fade to black

With the absence of the heart
we could never smile
we can feel the bitter tears

Whispers from you - calling out from above
visions I can't see, like the wind and your love
whispers to you - calling out through the night
words I can't hear, graceful figure in white

And when you watch over me
please guide me all the way
you're my judge and my jury

As I lay my head to rest
your absence will surround me
and I'll die another death

Whispers from you - calling out from above
visions I can't see, like the wind and your love
Whispers to you - calling out through the night
words I can't hear, graceful figure in white

[Solo]

Whispers from you - calling out from above
visions I can't see, like the wind and your love
Whispers to you - calling out through the night
words I can't hear, graceful figure in white


06. The Haunting

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Lightning flashes across the sky
the hands of time keep falling like the pouring rain
Soft voice call my name; I've seen this place before
This whole thing is mad and still I can see
that he awaits for me

As the knife cuts to the vein
am I going insane? Have I lost my mind?
Ten years gone by, my friend, haunting me
scars will fade but never die

Prisioner waiting out my time
looking back through years gone by
My mind is always wondering what can I do
to seal a different fate,
can I undo the things I've done?
I lie on the ground without making a sound
and cry for my life
again

As the knife cuts to the vein
am I going insane? Have I lost my mind?
Ten years gone by, my friend, haunting me
scars will fade but never die

Staring down at me
through my eyes I can see
al the terror and pain still live on
I can't leave
silver strand is pulling me back to mortality

[Solo]

As the knife cuts to the vein
am I going insane? Have I lost my mind?
Ten years gone by, my friend, haunting me
scars will fade but never die


07. Secrets

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Deep within a tiny box, shadowed truth under the locks
Burns inside your heart - then it starts

Your soul stretched on the rack
the straw that breaks the back
Watch the make-up crack...

Got no peace of mind, now you're going blind
Secrets within, living in sin.
No one needs to know, watch the cancer grow
Feel it eating - Secrets within.

Secrets hurt if they are told, someone's trust you will
have sold - Don't tell a soul.
Hear the cry inside of you, live the lie or speak the
truth - when will it end?

Your soul stretched on the rack
the straw that breaks the back
Watch the make - up crack...

Got no peace of mind, now you're going blind
Secrets within, living in sin.
No one better know, feel the cancer grow
Feel it eating - Secrets within your mind.

[Solo]

Got no peace of mind, now you're going blind
Secrets within, living in sin.
No one needs to know, watch the cancer grow
Feel it eating - Secrets within your mind.


08. A Winter's Dream - Prelude (Part I)

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Although your words are empty,
I can hear now, what you feel inside

The night is drawing closer,
you fell you have to hide.

Your fears are never wrong or right
Everything is either black or white.

It's time to close your eyes now,
begin your fantasy - what does it mean?
Wake your dreams (commence now...)
into reality.

Your fears are never wrong or right
Everything is either black or white.

In a Winter's Dream - I'll be there for you
In a Winter's Dream - I'll be there for you


09. A Winter's Dream - The Ascension (Part II)

Music & lyrics by Symphony X
Still in bed an hour past,
I'm drifting through the night.
As fallen star divides the sky of divinity.

Taken on a journey,
and enlightened to the past.
And if I wake, if I wake, will it embrace me?

Awoke at dawn to calm the stor inside of me.
Take my last breath as I fall into eternity...

Risen to an astral flight, I wander through
the serene with you.
Answers to the voices I hear,
In a Winter's Dream, a dream.

Empty minds still wait, I'm here.
Captured by light - my spirit rides through the
night.
And if I dream to wake - will it embrace me?

When the story fades and all is said done,
I can not wait - pray for daybreak -
Will it escape me?

Awoke at dawn to calm the storm inside of me.
Take my last breath as I fall into eternity...

Risen to an astral flight, I wander through
the serene with you.
Answers to the voices I hear,
In a Winter's Dream, a dream.

[Solo]

In a Winter's Dream - I'll be there for you
In a Winter's Dream - I'll be there for you

Risen to an astral flight, I wander through
the serene with.
Answers to the voices I hear,
In a Winter's Dream, a dream.
