01. Seeds Of Sorrow

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
There's no way to stop the ancient ghost that is rising from his grave
Spilling a drop of hatred from his bowl
He senses the fear and misery, searching for fresh blood
Feeling hunger growing in his dark soul

Here he stands ready to sow
Harvest about seeds of his sorrow
As he takes his toll

Far on the horizon
The echoes of years closing in
There's no escape anymore from
The hatred exploding within

We are feeding the beast, he's becoming much more powerful every year
We give him more leash, increasing our fear
Soon will start the feast that ends in our extermination
The signs are here the vision should be crystal clear

Here he stands ready to sow
Harvest about the seeds of his sorrow
As he takes his toll

Far on the horizon
The echoes of years closing in
There's no escape anymore from
The hatred exploding within

Far on the horizon
The echoes of years closing in
There's no escape anymore
As the echoes start to ring


02. Reasons

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
Can't you hear me awaiting
Listen to the sounds of your mind
And everything I've been saying
Don't you see or are you blind?

These are the reasons - Take a look around
Another season - All the things you've found
These are the reasons - Lying on the ground

Hear me call your name
All the things I say

Can't you see me walking
I'm trying to find my way to you
And all the things I've been saying
Are from my heart tried and true

These are the reasons - Take a look around
Another season - All the things you've found
These are the reasons - Lying on the ground

Hear me call your name
All the things I say


03. Around

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
I feel I've seen what I've needed to see
And some things would have been better off unseen
What have I learned and how should I feel
When nothing seems to move me or make me cry

I walk away - don't have a need to stay
I turn my back - I've seen enough for today

I've been around, I've been here and there
It seems to me like everyone's gone mad
The same things are going on everywhere
And it all makes me feel so sad

I walk away - don't have a need to stay
I turn my back - I've seen enough for today

Hopelessness is a state of my mind
All that's here now might not be around tomorrow
The answers are sometimes so hard to find
The more I think the deeper I sink into sorrow

I walk away - don't have a need to stay
I turn my back - I've seen enough for today


04. Can You Hear The Sound

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
As I walk down the streets of this town
Completely new to me, what will I see
The darkness it settling down, warm whisper of the wind
I follow the crowd but don't know where they're leading me

Can you hear the sound
Drifting through the air tonight
Coming from the underground
It can be heard so bright
I must find more of that kind
The sound of freedom's call

And as we reach a park where campfires burn
It's already dark and it feels so good
Then I see an old man singing with all his heart
I join the circle now watching him enjoying the mood

Can you hear the sound
Drifting through the air tonight
Coming from the underground
It can be heard so bright
I must find more of that kind
The sound of freedom's call


05. Snowbound

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
All that I feel now the things inside
They keep on coming haunt me till I die
No use in going somewhere to hide
The beauty of life has it been a lie?

So many opinions, it's so hard to see
Sometimes I don't know what's wrong or right
Mist fills the ground below, the moon's leading me
And I'll find my way through the darkest night

All that I have seen on my journey
Have gone away lost in the maze
I shut my eyes and dismiss what I see
My dreams torn apart they decay in my memories

Everything I see is white haze
It is all around like a nightmare
I've been snowbound


06. Journey Back

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
I'm racing down this empty road
Leaving all the black clouds behind
The last rays of the sun are marking the day
A vision that is one of a kind

I've been away from all that I love
But now I'm back for good or for a while
Going back home, I've been away too long
I am a stranger, I feel like in exile

All I need is here around me
I've been searching in all the wrong places
Here's my home where I feel I am free
I am among the ones that I love


07. Evening's Fall

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
All the words that have been said are about to grow
If there only would be someone who'd listen to me to stand by my side
The time has come to open old wounds and let it flow
There's loneliness in the eyes of a man standing on the shore, gazing at the tide

As the evening's falling
I am shivering on the shore
And the wind is calming down
I'm in peace once more

So many days I've been here all alone
And waited for a miracle to appear clearing it all
The summer's been kind to me but soon it's gone
As I watch the sun going down I recognize the first signs of fall

As the evening's falling
I am shivering on the shore
And the wind is calming down
I'm in peace once more


08. Coldness Of My Mind

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
When the circle is fulfilled and the levels are low
It's time to sit down and think for a while
I've been burning my fuses down, no energy to show
All the instructions are in the missing file

How did I reach this point where no bridges can be seen
To carry me to the promised golden lands
Instead I roam alone in waters not so clean
In the end I stand with empty hands

As the dawning of the day
Comes the clear the fog away
And the coldness of my mind
So I stand here alone
Silent memories that I've known
Thinking 'bout what I have left behind


09. Take Me Away

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
I've been thinking, trying to find
the way back home, some peace of mind
My world is shrinking I'm losing all touch
I just can't find the things I miss so much

Take me, take me away
I've been losing my mind these days
I see so unclear
I've really gone astray

I ran away from you, I thought I knew
how to leave the problems behind and make it through
Though I've been drifting I keep winding back here
confused by the world I'm longing for you


10. Here We Are

Music & lyrics by Timo Kotipelto
You can see them everywhere, just look around
They don't even try to hide
You've been doomed to fail no matter what you try
Unless you're standing on their side

Here we are
Holding on to our dreams
We will find the way
Through the foggy and hazy day
Nobody can stop us now, we are on the run
We shall move so fast
They can't catch us, our journey's begun

Making all the right moves to please someone
Would it get you somewhere
Going by the book obeying all the rules
The time has come for some fresh air
