01. Twisted Mind

Lyrics by Tobias Sammet
[Roy Khan:]
One of a kind they say they've never seen before
Investigate the aberration, disorder in the core
[Tobias Sammet:]
I never tried to hide away or tried to keep your pace
You walk me to the slaughter with a smile upon your face

[Chorus:]
From the cradle to the madhouse, a twisted mind
There's no way out of this hell for twisted mind
There's no way out
There's no way out

[Roy Khan:]
You've come to see the healer, so don't you be afraid
They call me tranquilizer, I'm here to isolate
We paint in black and white and you're the dirty in between
Monstrosity of nature, a virulent disease

[Chorus]

Can't you see, can't you see
That you are not like anyone?
You'll never see through anyone else's eyes
And who am I to certify the sanity of a twisted mind
A victim of perception, a twisted mind

[x2]
Missprizing chastising
Subhuman fragmentizing
Sensation aberration
Repulsive tantalizing

[x2]
From the cradle to the madhouse, a twisted mind
There's no way out of this hell for twisted mind

There's no way out [x6]


02. The Scarecrow

[Tobias Sammet:]
I'm just a loser in the game of love
I'm just a stray boy in the shade
And how I wish to know what love is like
To find someone to contemplate

There's a voice and a million answers
To the questions I don't ask
A demon I've got to contain
When I'm walking through the fen
Gonna deep into the black
There are whispers that I can't restrain

Don't give in

[Chorus:]
Rise to fame time will come
Make your claim time has come
For the crow who fly away

[Jorn Lande:]
So you're an angel meant to walk down here
And you believe it's all divine
And you don't play by all those temporal rules
Watch the world begin to die

Alright when the lamb's been torn to pieces,
I've been crashing from the sky
Fallen to care for the pray, they put a spoke right in your wheel
I'm the one to dare the weak, to push you all over the pain
You give in oh

[Chorus]

[solo: Sascha Paeth]

[Tobias Sammet:]
I close my eyes and I see what's coming my way
He's got treasure in his eyes that he's gonna turn to clay

[Jorn Lande:]
Hm, I'm a stranger, I'm a changer and I'm danger...
Maybe

[Tobias Sammet:]
Fallen angel - waiting for the prey
The devil has come to take a maimed away
Penetration of the twisted mind
The evil is out for the weak and blind

I can feel it in your voice
Ever so sweet, no
Do I really have a choice? No, no, no!

[Jorn Lande:]
Oh, you burn your feet on unholy ground
You roam the barren wicked plains abound
In evil eyes and evil speak
About it all your evil freaks

When you say it's all divine and meant to be
What about your flesh and blood and defires like me?

Their evil eyes are looking down on you
And those who don't are losing sight of you
Face the rage to chase away
The specter of disgrace and shame

Withered roses dying on the ledge
A withered dreamer standing on the edge
You dream of love but you wake up to pain
You're better off to join in my game

Then she'll better off to cry contrite tears
One day she'll wonder why she had to let you disappear,

Rise to fame your time has come
Time will come to take the sun
Make your claim - you're drawn to the sound
Time has come you're leaving ground

Rise to fame - the flight of the crow
Time will come - cross the line
Your time has come - for the crow to fly away

It's a flight to hell
Can you hear the bell
The devil has come
To take your soul away
A flight to hell - alright

I'm a stranger
I'm a changer
And I'm danger
Fallen angel
Waiting for the prey


03. Shelter From The Rain

[Tobias Sammet:]
Like a wheel I keep on turning
Straight ahead, it's got me burning
The melody the dignity,
Something is speaking to me

Night is cold and my soul is battered
Not afraid for the first time now that I realize
We coincide, I'll never belong to the tribe

And a song is calling me to this ship of fools

[Chorus:]
Been dying for a sign when faith has been on the line
When you find your love on wasted grounds
You're taking to the sound, it's shelter from the rain

[Michael Kiske:]
No return from the way I've chosen,
Cast away - chasing rainbows - condemn the lie
And how could I make god believe I'm blind

We create by intuition,
Call it fate the tounge of angels in our soul
Feel it resound and carry you over the grind

All that's left is a song giving shelter from the rain

[Chorus]

[Bob Catley:]
It's a dark and stormy night,
Ain't it funny what it takes to read the signs?
But I'm always there, I am the footprints to your right
Man overlooked when riding high, young and blind

In your darkest lonely night, heed a voice to take you higher
Take you higher
As you stumble through the ruins, let the spirit take you higher
and a soul

[Tobias Sammet:]
Oh, and a song
I can hear a song

[Chorus x2]


04. Carry Me Over

[Tobias Sammet:]
Never been told my prayers would be answered
Wherever I go I see you around
Never been told about something that beautiful
Will bring me up to let me down

Waiting up on the roof, waiting up in the rain
Just to catch a glimpse of your face
Even when you're around
Still I'm out of sight, out of sound
In your world I'm out of place

[Chorus:]
Carry me over, carry me over
Carry me over now
Carry me over, carry me over
Carry me over now

You're like a ghost that I can't let go
You follow every step that I take
Never thought someone could be too close to you
Now across the street is miles away

And now I might as well be the man in the moon
I am watching but you don't seem aware
But I won't be around
I'll be out of sight, out of sound
Someone's gonna wait somewhere

[Chorus x3]


05. What Kind Of Love

[Amanda Somerville:]
A dream of dwelling inside
Alone we come and alone we go
And who am I to know what I feel
Sympathy that's tearing me apart?
Attraction of the distance to a heart affinity?

What if love will leave your heart an open sore
And I can't reveal what even I don't know?
The love you feel you waste away on me
What kind of love will let us bleed away?
No kind of love will make us bleed away

[Tobias Sammet:]
If only you could be the one to take a look inside
I feel so incomplete
A broken man in need of mother love
I'm suffering in silence and no one wants to see
The only god is watching as I bleed
The star above my matching piece

[Amanda Somerville:]
Oh, this love will leave your heart an open sore
And I can't reveal what even I don't know
This love you feel you waste away on me
What kind of love will let us bleed away?
No kind of love will make us bleed away

[Tobias Sammet:]
Feel - that's all you gotta do
And it will heal you
Feel the pain to lead you home to peace of mind
Dwell inside
Feel - that's all you gotta do
And it will heal the wound
Feel there will be a song for peace of mind
Dwell inside


06. Another Angel Down

[Jorn Lande:]
I am the master of the game that's made a fool you
I'm watching from the highest tower
You've got the aura to enchant them and a symphony
And I have got the power

You better taste: they call it life my special area
I'm breeding winners over there
Ain't it a sin to turn your back on what you're given?
It's time to take your share

[Tobias Sammet:]
God left me for dead - I've been turning my head
Away from the living - the time has come
To gamble for gain - to tear down the gate
And see what's inside

[Chorus:]
We rock the ball, been smashed to the ground
Arose from devotion to take a look and see what is inside
Sight of the crown: another angel down
We rock the ball, I'm facing my pain
A rage and a symphony driven by the wounds I cannot hide
Rise above the crowd: another angel down

[Tobias Sammet:]
We'll see a black hole will be left up in the starry sky
We gotta mourn another angel
If I am just a light descending to caducity
It's still so far away

There's no tomorrow, I don't remember yesterday
I'm just living for tonight
And all the love I'm not gonna waste no more
I won't spit what's divine

[Jorn Lande:]
They left you for dead - turning your head
Away form the living - from flesh and blood
You've got the draw and desire to claw
For fortune and fame

[Chorus]


07. The Toy Master

[Alice Cooper:]
Don't you be afraid,
Come and step inside, take a look around
I'm your holy grail in your candy store to save you from the profound
They used to dream in only black and white
Can't you hear them scream, drowning in the tide

[Pre-chorus:]
Out in the cold, I see water frozen in their eyes
What a sorry sight
I am willing to believe they would pay for a smile

[Chorus:]
I'm the master of toys
And all you girls and boys
Are welcome to my wonderland
I'm the angel of joy
And I'm here to paint the void
Welcome to my world

To my dream factory

Say hello to the gentleman with the paint
The deeper you're in the blue, the sweeter the sound of your plaints
If only I had a heart it would break oh sure
And I wonder how much more they can take

[Pre-chorus sung by Tobias Sammet]
[Chorus]

I've dealing in pain and a little Novocaine
Welcome to my world, to my toy factory

[x2]
No more struggle at the classes
No more struggle at the masses
On their knees, conformity
They all ready for a hero, they all flying at zero
It's their turn to crash and burn

[Chorus]

I come to bring you pain
And a little Novocaine
Welcome to my world, to my toy factory


08. Devil In The Belfry

[Tobias Sammet:]
I dropped off in the shadows
The lead of a tragedy
I open my eyes blind by the spotlight
And what do I see?

[Jorn Lande:]
Pushed by ambition, you've been granted admission
To the hall of acclaim,
She denied your affection,
Now listen the whole world is screaming your name

[Tobias Sammet:]
I will forget her but I won't forgive
The curtain has fallen, behold the messiah

[Chorus:]
Riding high, the devil on the crest
For all the world to see forevermore
I am I devil in the belfry, I'll be glorified forevermore

[Jorn Lande:]
Is it a sin to learn to be able to live without love?
And is it a sin to put love under will and control from above?

[Tobias Sammet:]
Devil in my fingers pleasure at my feet
Mind out of sight
The shadow I'll cast shall darken her world
And ghost her at night

With each song you'll die a little for me
It won't leave the scar, 'cause I've drown the curtain

[Chorus x2]

[Jorn Lande:]
Into the opera like moths to the flame
Spellbind their senses to follow the hero

[Chorus x2]


09. Cry Just A Little

[Tobias Sammet:]
A heart out of affection, a night at the masquerade
You won some and you're long some
As the spotlight fades
Going forth pretending destination is at hand
When she's crying just a little just for me

[Bob Catley:]
I've seen them set off to the Promised Land
Escaping from the hurtings they don't understand
A sense of satisfaction on account of pristine tears
She's crying just little more just like you

No, oh, no, no

[Chorus:]
Why don't you cry, cry a little over me?
Why don't you lie?
Can't you tell me that I am hard to deny?
Can't you see what I am going through?
Cry just a little for me, oh, girl, a little for me

[Bob Catley:]
Afraid to give away what you keep inside
There's a ghost in your mirror every lonesome night
All those nights are getting colder
And your heart is a frozen wound
Don't you wonder who'll be there when you awake?

No, oh

[Chorus x2]


10. I Don't Believe In Your Love

[Oliver Hartmann:]
No one around to hear your cries
No one there to even realize you grit your teeth
What are you afraid to lose when you're left alone?
I'm the one to make you anything you wanna be

[Tobias Sammet:]
Never broke the silence, never broke the ice
No more waiting, I gotta wipe her off my mind
Loving her is dying, loving her is pain
Babylon I'm coming, ready for the fray

[Chorus:]
I don't believe in your love, tread on this bed of roses
I don't believe in your love, don't give a fuck for roses

Don't give damn for roses, no, no, no

[Oliver Hartmann:]
You've been standing on the edge, lost between the worlds of agony and ecstasy
Take your share boy straightaway, it's all heaven sent
She won't care: they call divine but it's all evil

[Tobias Sammet:]
Loving you was bleeding so I had to break away
Darkness' stretching out its hand to save me from your sway
'cause loving you was wasting, loving you was pain
No angel left temptation, open up the gate

I don't believe in your love
Tread on this bed of roses
I don't believe in your love

Don't give a fuck for roses

[Tobias Sammet:]
Loving you was bleeding, so I had to break away
Darkness' stretching out it's hand, to save me from your swear
'cause loving you was wasting, loving you was pain
No angel left temptation, open up the gate
'cause loving you was wasting,

[x2]
I don't believe in your love, tread on this bed of roses
I don't believe in your love, don't give a fuck for roses

No I don't believe, I don't believe in your love
Your love, no, no, no, no
No I don't believe in your love


11. Lost In Space

[Tobias Sammet:]
Another star has fallen without sound
Another spark has burned out in the cold
Another door to barrens standing open
And who is there to tell me not to give in, not to go?

[Chorus:]
How could I know, how could I know?
That I'll get lost in space to roam forever
How could I know, how could I see?
Feeling like lost in space to roam forever

I'm crawling down, the doorway to the badlands
And kicking down are you heard: it's to the black
And all the damage fading in the rear view mirror
And the demons are calling me, they're dragging me away

[Chorus]

[Amanda Somerville:]
Lost in space, lost in time
Lost in space, lost in time
Lost in space

[Tobias Sammet:]
How could I know - How could I
How could I know - How could I know
That I'll get lost in space to roam forever
How could I know - How could I see
Feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Forever...
