01. Star Of David

He lured them in by lying
And made them greedy

To begin with I am sad
To begin with I am must as mad as you
Almost...
You see there's a difference between us
That won't go away 'til you're dead

My pretty dancer tell me
Are you alone inside your make-up
And the mask you're wearing
Slowly tearing you apart
Sing, do a final show for me
You're heavy at heart as can be
I know you're sad about it

Quick be on your way
To the sound of the army boots
You fall asleep so quietly
Maybe you will live another day
Soon they will find you and make you pay

Predators will hunt their prey
Send me on my way just to bleed
Cut you open for the cause to feed
Tell me a tale, the one about that girl
Who can dance away time
Move her feet like rain

His words are all the same lies
His words are greedy

Sing, do a final show for me
There's a tear in your eye I can see
That I'm not talking while you're singing

Quick be on your way
Disappear in the dark
Be a black shadow in the park, fade away
And try to live throughout the day
Soon they will find you and make you pay

You will follow
They will lead with minds of flesh
And blood and greed
Cut you open like a sack of seed
Tell me a tale
The one about that girl
Who can dance away time
Move her feet like rain

Predators will hunt their prey
Send me on my way just to bleed
Cut you open for the cause to feed
Tell me a tale, the one about that girl
Who can dance away time
Move her feet like rain

Cause I'm a soldier and you're a dancer
So I let you over
Sold!!!


02. Taint The Sky

A Northern corner
The stage is set and each must play his part
Accusing children:
"I have seen her fly!" -- the life-depriving lies

I'm sorry you must believe me
But we have seen you heal in evil ways
Deceiver!

Witches will burn
Even if she dies for a crime unknown
Taint the sky, ashes falling
And even if your heart is saying No
Your mind is so twisted
Can you really let her go?
Soon the heavens will burn

A stronger magic
To allow this jest reason is subdued
Accused and lying
Oh sure she will cry
Confession tears they are

I'm sorry, my life is over
And we will make the demons go away
Forever!
Witches will burn
Even if she dies for a crime unknown

Taint the sky, ashes falling
And even if your heart is saying No
Your mind is so twisted
Can you really let her go?
Soon the heavens will burn

A kingdom is burning
And will I ever know just why?
I see them burning on I see
It burns in me
They're burning us all

Witches will burn
Even if she died for a crime unknown
Tainted sky, shame is calling
And even if your heart is saying No
You can make a difference
Can I really? Yes, I know
Soon the sky in the fire will burn


03. Waiting In The Wings

So here I am, I'm a man
And that little boy tied down
Deep within me
You have broken your word!
I'm sorry that I bowed once again
And let the monsters loose
You can't understand it
Your can't understand what it's like
The world which we live in
Feel I'm tearing up inside
I'm loosing my mind

One look and the clown
In the mirror says
Hi -- I'm still here waiting
And tine is no longer on your side
A part of him dies
Another one lives in the mirror

And his legacy reigns
But I won't follow you
In the shadows I cry
Closer to heaven I fail

I still remember the words
That the little boy I once was, were told
Son, order rises from fear
Oh, how I swore I'd fight what he was
And I'd never be like him
I was such a fool
An ignorant fool to believe
A man can control
How he's living out his life
Or change anything

One look and the clown
In the mirror says
Hi -- I'm still here waiting
And time is no longer on you side
A part of him dies
Another one lives in the mirror

And his legacy reigns
But I won't follow you
In the shadows I cry
Closer to heaven I fail

So here I am, I'm a man in a cynical world filled
With compromises
A tyrant signs in the mirror
I know now I've been weak and afraid and turned
The other cheek
He knows I can't stand it. He knows I can't stand
That I am
A pawn in his puzzle
And still waiting in the wings, the ghost of my past

One look and the clown in the mirror says
Hi -- I'm still here waiting
And time is no longer on your side
A part of him dies
Another one lives in the mirror

And his legacy reigns, but I won't follow him
In the shadows I cry, alone
So close to heaven

[CHORUS]
And his legacy reigns
But I won't follow you
In the shadows I cry
Closer to heaven I fail


04. Banish The Wicked

When the morning arrives
The whispering wind reveals
The intentions of the night
So don't you tease the power
Watching over us
The childless and sad mother cries
Oh please, be careful
So children stop your foolish games
Ad smile towards the light
And don't you dare cry

So many friends have died
And we all know it's too many
How can we possibly break this curse?
I don't know
She will probably punish me
For even thinking about
Leaving the village

And the people know
They got no place to go

When the goddess dance
Across the heavens
She's so bright
Like an arch of light
They couldn't dream
Of denying her will tonight
The righteous will stand
And the wicked are banished
From her land

When the evening arrives
They stand before the queen
May her judgment
Free or fail the lawless
The widow cries a silent tear
The scar of a justified fear of loosing
Cause someone's watching over them
Impaling every move
With raging northern light

So many friends have died
And we all know it's too many
How can we possibly break this curse?
I don't know
She will probably punish me
For even thinking about
Leaving the village

And the people know
To turn the lights down low

[Chorus:]
One light, one spell
One dance for all the breathless
So scared, inside -- spare me, goddess!

When she's dancing all across the heavens
She's so bright like
An arch of light
They couldn't dream
Of denying her will tonight
When she's dancing
All across the heavens
She so bright...so bright
They couldn't dream
Of denying her will tonight
And the righteous will stand
As she'll banish the wicked
From her land


05. Not An Angel

Even when alone I'm not lonely
Even when you're hot I am cold as ice
Another day another lie
And there is nobody to catch me
When I'm falling
Wake up my dear and smell the salt
Don't hide your fear it's not your fault
And from the day I saw your face
I've been lying

Soon she will die
In the enemy bed she's sleeping
Innocent victim of this dark charade
But my secret remains in the shade

Yeah I want you to know
I'm not an angel
This evening I can longer hide
I'm not just a man
And I want you to know
I'm not your angel
Darling run -- why can't you see?
So run...away from me

Under the moon
My heart is turning black
Under my disguise
Another night. Another dies
And if you find a place to hide I'll
Kick the walls in
What you don't know
Will not hurt you
But here is the blow
That is not true
And you will never know what hit you

Until the end I will love you
And love is blind. Now that is true
Cause you will never know what hit you
I've been lying

Soon she will die
In the enemy bed she's sleeping
Innocent victim of this dark charade
But my secret remains in the shade

Yeah I want you to know
I'm not an angel
This evening I can longer hide
I'm not just a man
And I want you to know
I'm not your angel
Darling run -- why can't you see?
So run... away from me

Tonight there is evil
On the ground
Tonight there is evil
Hold on tighter
When you believe
There is no one to blame
I've got to prove you wrong
Yeah

Yeah I want you to know
I'm not an angel
This evening I can longer hide
I'm not just a man
And I want you to know
I'm not your angel
Darling run -- why can't you see?
So run... away from me


06. Devil's Inc.

[Falling Down]

I will tell you how I failed
To be a good man
If you follow the flame
You end up in the dark
Coming up in a dream
Sitting up in the night
With a cold panic attack and a scream
Although it's hot
I'm feeling very cold inside
Although I am alive
I can not feel a thing
I wanna now why I
Really had to follow the tall man
To his office down underground
Call me dead heart walking

[In The Office]

Hey...no way! You don't have to be down
Don't you wanna make it better?
Sign right here! Said the Devil to the boy
And suck in the flavour, suck in the flavour
A favour is what I'm offering to you
Sign the document and take the
Favour. The one I'm offering to you
And suck in the flavour, suck in the flavour

Soul chasers on the move
Waiting for the kill
My future plan
I was sending it right down
To never land
The one who felt the fiend's hand
Will understand
That my ship will sink
It was written in devil's ink

[The Insight]

I'm sorry I turned my back on you
Don't know what to do
And why did I turn?
God how it burns
I'm covered in deep blue tonight
I'm sorry that I've turned
My back on you
I hope you do
Forgive me tonight

To live in this world
Is no longer my right
The cool morning breeze
Is no longer my right to feel
This face is yours to blame
For the bad I've done
So pass me down because I sold my soul

[The Crime]

To take a life worth living did not help at all
The money I came over they did not catch my fall

[Chorus]

[Remorse]

Now I know that I shed my tears
All those years
In vain will I die
Coming up in a dream
Sitting up in the night
With a cold panic attach and a scream
Although it's hot
I'm feeling very cold inside
And when I fall asleep
I have no happy dreams
I'm not man
I'm a puppet in a cage
Drinking darkness, eating sorrow
With a knife and a trident

[The Lie]

I met with the man with the magic eyes
He took me home just like a son
And made me believe in a paradise
The other one without a sun

[Chorus]

[The Fate Of A Murderer]

He never could and he never will
I will never show up in "Pleasantville"
He's gonna wake up where the time stand still
Just to find myself
Living in "the deadville" (the devil)
Soon his job beneath is to
Be a star of the show the devil hosts
And to never come back from his world
That would be the fear I fear the most


07. Walking Tall

It's only a matter of time
Before you loose it
And I once believed in fire

And tear me up!
Something burns inside of me

You mark my words, the game is up
And why did you have to show
That it's just a grand illusion?
Why did you ever let me go?
I'm asking you

Cause I'm walking tall
Marching down this shattered road
I've learned
Pain means alive
And I'm slowly breaking through
Without you

So come clench your fist
Round my heart and leave me bleeding
It's already ripped to pieces
Blackened on the ground

You game me scars that never heal
Oh why did you hurt me so
You pathetic little person
Just one more thing before you go
I'm telling you

[Chorus]


08. The Edge Of My Blade

He came from the mountains up north
And the memory remains
Like blood on my sleeve
That won't go away
A man from the mountains up north
He ripped of a smile
From this little boys face
When you went away
A little spark grew
And the art of hating you

Hold me father
Embrace me with your ever smile
Sole survivor
And shine upon me like a star

Fear me pagan
As I am coming to end your list
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the colour remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade

A feeling still fresh in my memory
When you closed his eyes
You took out my light as well
Turned heaven to hell
I swore on my family name
I swore I would find him and treat him the same
But I get no peace
My heart can not rest
Until my work here is done

So hear me father
Once again I am talking to you
No need to bother
I must do what I'm destined to do

[Chorus]

I've killed you in so many ways
Since the day I saw you in the haze
I've been trying to sleep
But it's hard to do
When the ravens are
In my head

Why, father?
Why didn't my pain go away
I am back
And I'll sleep
With my conscience tonight
I traveled far away from home
I traveled over waters
Just to send him right where he belong
The black ravens showed me the way


09. Pieces

Wonders... they happen every day
For sure, the fact is overwhelming me
In every land there are witnesses to tell a story
Fate decides what the future hides
I've read my own prewritten lines

And so time goes by and that is why
I know tomorrow will never come

You are watching the world
While she's falling to pieces
But still you smile
And every time your babies cry
You hold them tight
So tell me
Who is the fool when the curtains fall?
And the future is gone

Miracles
It helps you to see the world with different eyes
Suddenly you come to realize that time flies
And you have been a fool
So take your final breath
Feeling lonely with only yourself to blame

But fill your head with happy lies
Say a prayer
Under the tainted skies

Watching the world
While she's falling to pieces
But still you smile
And every time your babies cry, you hold them tight
So tell me, who is the fool when the curtains fall?
And the future is gone

You are watching the world
While she's falling to pieces
But still you smile
And every time your babies cry, you hold them tight
Tell me how do you sleep at night?
Tell me how do you sleep at night?
Tell me how do you sleep at night?
