01. The Witness

Kyrie, kyrie eleison.
Kyrie, kyrie eleison.
Kyrie eleison.
Kyrie eleison.

I had a dream last night
The same old dream I've had every night since I was a child
There's a girl lost in the middle of an immense battlefield
There is fire and rage everywhere
She has a sword and a feather in her hands

Close your eyes, don't leave me here alone
Do you hear the angels crying
Helpless they're waiting for me in the dark

Come with me, there's no way out
I cannot escape the rage and the fire
I'm lost with a sword and a feather in my hands

I shall be the silent witness in the dark
The time has come, I can see Death walking all around

Now tell me why I'm here with a feather in my hand
Now tell me why I'm here with a sword in my hand
I'm cold inside, I am just a little girl in a game I don't understand
Don't leave me here alone

Now look at there, men in shining uniforms
Carrying their guns like a scepter of joy and glory
They fall with fear and madness in their eyes

Deep inside your heart, deep inside your mind
There is blood on this blade, there is blood on your face
Deep inside your heart, deep inside your mind
There is fear in your eyes, there is blood in your hands
Deep inside your heart, deep inside your soul
There is war outside and you don't even know why
There is no way out, there's nowhere to hide
Now's the time for you to get on your knees and pray

Look at them, there's madness in their eyes
And fear on their face, the fear for losing their lives

Randomly they shoot in the dark
Surrounded by the tears, the cries and the fire
While I'm lost with a sword and a feather in my hands

I shall be the silent witness in the dark
On the brink of tears, I can see Death walking all around

Now look at the suffering, listen to the cries
Too late for you to open their eyes
The core of the problem in there natures lies
There's war in their hearts, they don't even know why

Now tell of why I'm here with a feather in my hand
Now tell of why I'm here with a sword in my hand
Oh Mothers, how long will you have to cry
With your children dying in your arms?


02. The Train

There are shadows around me
And a void inside my mind
There's a black sky through the window
And no star to guide me
Through the night

I am sitting in this howling train
And we're diving in the dark
And my own voice won't be heard
When I try to ask where it is leading us all

Is there someone around here
Tell me are these souls alive
Or only faint ghosts of an ancient past
Tell me am I just another one?

Oh please someone now tell me
Are we all just the same
Are we just all lost here in this train
In a tunnel with no end

My heart is strong
Much stronger than theirs
Can't you hear it?
My heart is strong
Much stronger than theirs

I am running through this crowded train
Trying to find reason and rhyme
No I won't give up tonight
No I won't let my life slip through my fingers

Can you hear a distant call in the night
It just awakened all my senses
It's my own voice celebrating
All the gods, the devils, the spirits
I've been denying

Is there someone around here
Tell me, are these souls alive
They're only faint ghosts of an ancient past
Tell me, am I just another one?

Oh please someone now tell me
Are we all just the same
Are we just all lost here in this train
In a tunnel with no end

My heart is strong
Much stronger than theirs
Can't you hear it?
My heart is strong
Much stronger than theirs

Give me back the light of the sky
Give me back the warmth of my heart
Wake me up from this nightmare

In the cold I will rise
I will draw tears from your eyes
Myself myself, will shiver and thrive
Myself myself, slyly wrapped
In the mist of the night

Not now, it's too early
Don't tell me I already reached my destination
I want to stay here!
I want to stay here!

Gloria In Excelsis Deo


03. Everlasting Child

You left me in an endless Garden
With blossoming flowers and the wind
Singing through the leaves
And the trees and the branches

You gave me my heart
You gave me my senses
The laughter, the joy and the love

I turned them to black
I turned myself to darkness

I am your blood
I am your flesh, your spirit
Your everlasting child
God, why have you left me here
Why did you turn your back on me?

I saw through lies
I learned to read between the lines
I reached the other side of the sea
I touched the moon the stars
The skies and the Mystery of Life

You gave us a life
Growing up in my belly
My heart and my soul
Now don't pretend he's Yours!

I am your blood
I am your flesh, your spirit
Your everlasting child
God, why have you left me here
Why did you turn your back on me?

You gave us a child
Growing up in my belly
Growing up in my heart and my soul
He's forever mine as well I am his
Until the end of time

I am your blood
I am your flesh, your spirit
Your everlasting child
God, why have you left me here
Why did you turn your back on me?


04. The Power And The Glory

I've seen the wonders of this world
I've heard the music, the choirs
That even angels could not even have thought of
Born in the soul and the tears and the essence of our lives
Destined to be forgotten when the time has come

Haven't you seen these men
Waging war on their brothers
Haven't you seen these men
Dying for the glory and the power

It's much too late to hear the prophet's cry in our heart
It's much too late to prove that we were right from the start
It's much too late to save what we've been fighting for

We feed the hope of our lives
With the same old ephemeral quests
And glorious dreams and ordinary lies
Now tell me what are your glory and your power worth
When a child is dreaming in your arms

I've seen so many people landing their hand to me
Trying to help as much as they can the child that I used to be
How can it be that someone dies under our eyes
While we move pretending to be blind
Living in our own paradise

How can it be that people are dying right under our eyes
Haven't you seen these men dying so far away from our heart

It's not too late to hear the prophet's cry in our heart
It's not too late to prove that we were right from the start
It's not too late to save what we've been fighting for

We feed the void of our lives
With the same old ephemeral quests
And glorious dreams and ordinary lies

We feed the void of our lives
With the same old ephemeral quests
And glorious dreams and ordinary lies
Now tell me what are your glory and your power worth
When a child is dreaming in your arms


05. Freedom

Freedom
Can't you hear our call
Such a hopeless word
Turning in our soul

Improbable freedom
The words that are turning in your head
Are they yours or theirs?
Impossible freedom
The hope that we buried in our heart
Will survive our soul


06. Escaping The Ghosts Of Reality

Just saved when you were lost
Waving the world goodbye
Just lost when you were saved
You've got to face their eyes now

You've got to find a better way
You've got to hold on
And face the devil's eyes

I've run for so long now
For so many years
Even remembering my own name
Is so hard to me
I've run for a thousand years
And I can't even remember
Where I'm heading to

And though my footprints in the sand
Are now the only proof that I am alive
Unconsciously I try
To leave as many as I can

I'll find a way
To reach out through the dark
I'll find a way
To break the silence
Through the night

Just saved when you were lost
Inside the maze of your mind
Just lost when you were saved
At last finding your way back

You've got to find a better way
You've got to hold on
And thwart the devil's plans

No one seems to really look into my eyes
How can they be fooled by my disguise
It's like a weird theater
Where I'm surrounded by mannequins

Every word that I say
Sounds so meaningless to me
Every blink that I make has its own purpose
It's like a huge theater
And I am surrounded by mannequins

Just saved when you were lost
Don't let the years go by
Just lost when you were saved
It's not too late to come back

You've got to find another way
You've got to fight
And exorcise the pain

I'll find a way
To reach out through the dark
I'll find a way
To break the silence through the night

I'm so alone
I feel so cold
I've lost my hope
I'm so afraid
Of... you

Escaping the bonds of all my childhood fears

Back again in my home
Far away from the chains
That I'll leave behind
That's where I want to be

I am escaping from my ghosts and illusions
The wind of freedom in my face
Escaping the ghosts
Of old friends and enemies
Wait for me, I'll be there with you

Escaping the bonds of all my childhood fears
Wait for me, I'll be there with you


07. Atlantis

I was born too soon, eager to enter the world
I grew up too fast, I forgot to be a child

This is a race against time I have to win
Don't stand in my way tonight
Whatever the price to pay
I am the runaway, runaway

I tried to fly away but forgot I had no wings
I tried to reach Atlantis but forgot I had to breathe
I tried to touch the fire but I got my fingers burned
I tried to win the race against time
But forgot the one I loved

I was thirsty for freedom, thirsty for love and passion
I ran away trying to find the answers to riddles torturing my mind

Appearances and attractive colours
Don't try to deceive my eyes
Now I need to cut off the strings
That are tying me down!

I tried to fly away but forgot I had no wings
I tried to reach Atlantis but forgot I had to breathe
I tried to touch the fire but I got my fingers burned
I tried to win the race against time
But forgot the one I loved

This is your way, this is your life
This is your voice, this is your choice

Haven't you heard the deadly siren's call
Haven't you heard the warning signs at all
O Mother please forgive me

I can still hear my father, unable to see the light in my eyes
O Mother please forgive me
How could I be blind to your own tears

This is my choice, my fight, my struggle for life
I will hold on against all the winds
Whatever the price to pay
I am the runaway, runaway

I tried to fly away but forgot I had no wings
I tried to reach Atlantis but forgot I had to breath
I tried to touch the fire but I got my fingers burned
I tried to win the race against time
But forgot the one I loved

This is a race against time I have to win
Don't stand in my way tonight
Whatever the price to pay
I am the runaway, runaway


08. The Old Man In The Park

Every morning there's an old man in the park
Sitting on the same old wooden bench
And all the birds are flying around his head
Singing again and again

He's gathered all the breadcrumbs he could
In his bag to throw them all away
To his only friends

Sometimes I can see there's a tear in his eye
And then I can feel the burden
He's been carrying for so long within his heart

The old man in the park did not come this morning
I wonder where he's gone now
Will I ever see him again
And now I'm missing him
Like a wise old friend gone without farewell

And when the rain is falling down in the park
I still can see his shadow through the dark
Proudly standing in the wind

Sometimes he seems to be smiling at me
Watching over me throughout my life
And it's been soothing me
Like the touch of an angel

The old man in the park did not come this morning
I wonder where he's gone now
Will I ever see him again
And now I'm missing him
Like a wise old friend

The old man in the park did not come this morning
I wonder where he's gone now
Will I ever see him again
He used to shine so bright
In his daughter's eyes

The old man in the park was my father
He died so many years ago
Leaving nothing
But sadness in my heart
And I'll be mourning him
Until my dying day


09. The Seeds Of Chaos

We The People we've been so proud
Of our cherished freedom
We The People we claim our right
To spoil the riches of this world
We The People we are so sure
Of our convictions
While the Earth is bleeding

But anger is roaring in Mother Nature's heart
Chaos is just waiting to spread over the land
The time has come to reap what has been sown
By Humankind

We The People we've been hiding
Behind a wall of lies
We burn candles
To ease our conscience
Blind!

Why are you closing your eyes?

Is there a god watching us
Spoiling the beauty of his Earth?
Can you hear him crying?

The Devil's laughters are filling up the skies
A whirlwind is howling to celebrate the rise
Of Mother's Earth righteous wrath
And the fall of God

Blood! Anger!
Blood! Anger!
Chaos!


10. Daughter Of The Night part I

Libera me Domine de morte aeterna
In die illa tremenda
Quando coeli movendi sunt et terra
Tremens factum sum
Dum discussio venerit atque ventura ira
Ego et timeo


11. Daughter Of The Night part II

Dies irae! Dies illa!
Calamitatis et miseriae
Dies magna et amara valde

Wake up now from this nightmare
There's no way out for you through the night
You've reached the end of the road now
It's time for you to come with me in the night
Wake up from this nightmare
You won't remember me much more than an impression
But I'll remember you and your soul, until I'm there to take you with me forever

Take my hand and dance with me
Let us now defy the shadows that we used to be
Let us now ignore the turns of fate
Together again

Tell me about your life, your sorrows
I want to know your deepest thoughts
And your wildest fantasies
Now it's time to share your burden
With me tonight

The spirits of the night are welcoming us
The spirits of the night are sheltering us
From the crude cold light
They will dim the colors of reality

I'm the Daughter of the Night
There's no way out of my grasp
I'm the Daughter of the Night
Just come and rest in my arms
Sweet dreams and nightmares are my realm
Nothing seems impossible
If you give me your hand

Dies irae! Dies illa!

Shapes and shadows and distant voices
Way too far from you
To hear your desperate silent call
Faces you can't even remember
Are just want I want you to see

It's not a game there's no prize to fight for
It's just a choice
And I am of no help in guiding you
You must cling to a hope
Or join us in the abyss

Where the spirits of the night
Are welcoming us
The spirits of the night
Are sheltering us
From the crude cold light
They will dim the colors of reality

I'm the Daughter of the Night
There's no way out of my grasp
I'm the Daughter of the Night
Just come and rest in my arms
Sweet dreams and nightmares are my realm
Nothing seems impossible
If you give me your hand

I'm the Daughter of the Night
Sweet dreams and nightmares are mine
I'm the Daughter of the Night
And I'm holding you in my hand
I'm the Daughter of the Night
The sweetest confessor you will ever find
Now tell me about your pain
Your sorrows your life
Before I read them myself from your eyes


12. On The Wings Of Time

Never look into the mirror
Unless you're ready to face the crude reality
Just close your eyes and let it be

Years are lingering across my cheeks
The fear of time slowly passing by
Hidden in my eyes

Tears are falling upon my hands
As dry as the desert under the burning sun
They left on my lips the taste of sorrow and pain

Time will spread its wings and fly
Like an eagle through the winds
The tide will wait for me until I'm ready to be free

Through your fingers
Time is flowing like a river to the sea
Just like those tears from your eyes
Through your fingers
Your life is flowing like a river to the sea
Just like the lines of your hands

I can see a young girl that I will not ever be again
So hard to think that she was me
So fragile and innocent
Looking for shelter in the wrong arms
Breaking the bonds that helped me not to stumble and fall

Time will spread its wings and fly
Like an eagle through the winds
The tide will wait for me until I'm ready to be free
To be free

Through your fingers
Time is flowing like a river to the sea
Just like those tears from your eyes
Through your fingers
Your life is flowing like a river to the sea
Just like the lines of your hands

Your youth will fade away
Like the echoes of singing bells in the dark
Your memories will turn as pale
As old photographs loosing their colors
As time passes by
How long will it last?
Only a fool would say
Never look into the mirror
And listen to the bells of oblivion
