02. Come

Music by After Forever
Lyrics by F. Jansen
Come join your inner wonderland
A place of all you don't understand
Come join this labyrinth deep within
The place of all miracles of your mind

Come join the magic, the power that you create
Come be aware it's an illusion you have made

Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night

You've passed the gates now, the door to inner wonderland
you've passed the gates made to create the borders of your dream

Come enter further, do you dare?
Come face the hell you daily bear
Come pass the borders of what's real
Come touch and see and feel

Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night
Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night

[Come, Join, Enter]

Come join this flow
Come join us, all here within your mind
Come join the magic, your body is weightless
You roam and you are anyone you can be
Come join this flow
Come join us all, here beyond your mind

As you enter this inner flow, your second part begins
And while the night enbraces you, you deal with the day

Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night
Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night


03. Boundaries Are Open

Music by After Forever
Lyrics by F. Jansen
I see clearly all my dreams
(you can imagine your whole life)
I know chance is always near
(with a mind full of conceit)
Make my own reality
(do you even know the truth)
Just imagine!

Boundaries are open

'Cause you cannot control this
(dreams keep slipping from my hands)
My reality differs from yours
(I must do just what I feel)
The power of imagination is strong
(keep trying, again and again)
So we only try to imagine

Will the force be so strong it will control one's mind?
Will this power delude or widen the madness that renders blind?
So the frontiers of our conceit
Then will become indistinct to vanish in thin air

Boundaries are open
But don't believe it's real!

So does faith have roots in imagination?
Who is right in the grim and endless fight for revelation?
I cannot tell what's right or wrong
For we all dwell in an imaginary borderland

Boundaries are open
But don't believe it's real

Boundaries are open
But don't believe it's real


04. Living Shields

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Weak and frightend
Paralyzed and naked
they are children running for their lives
Lives are taken
Terrorists mistaken for they use the young ones
as refined living shields

Pain and deep fear
Hostage in an ancient rage between people torn by their ideals
Willing to die, willing to kill
Hopeless and blind in their world where innocence dies

Weak and frightend
Paralyzed and naked
they are children running for their lives
Lives are taken
Terrorists mistaken for they use the young ones
as refined living shields

Rage and deep hate
Isolated in an ancient war with people not so different from you
Willing to fight, willing to try to win an endless battle of pride
while innocents die

And then we see them running
See the world is watching this
And we can only try to understand what causes it
And then we see the living
See then crying for their dead
Are we the ones to understand how crazy pain can get

Some people turn in circles
They can never break it through
Some people lost their lives before they died
and now they want it back!

Loss and deep grief
Engulfed in an ever present pain, ancient in practice

Weak and frightend
Paralyzed and naked
they are children running for their lives
Lives are taken
Terrorists mistaken for they use the young ones
as refined living shields


05. Being Everyone

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Who am I at night when my eyes are closed tight?
Who am I and where when I see far beyond?
Every border, every dream, every hidden memory
Every nightmare, truth or dare
Who do I see

Now!
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we just being everyone?

Where am I?
Tell me, would you go?
I should stay
Where am I, where am I?
And where should I go tonight?
Every night a different thing,
Every time you're in a different dream
Am I me there, what am I?
Who will I be

Now!
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we just being everyone?
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we being everyone?

I cry, I fall
I love, I hate
I know many, though no face ever stays
I breathe, I fly
I kill, I die
Though there's nothing that I know
No-one can recall where I have been or who I was

Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we being everyone?

Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we just being everyone?
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we being everyone?


06. Attendance

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Beauty and destruction
Pride and honour
Freedom, elimination
Speek out loud, hide

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we'll never learn

Blindness and silence
No one dares
Action and reprisal
Raise your voice, die

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we'll never learn

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we never will

Oh how will the earth be?
Seen for the first time?
Oh how will the earth feel?
Touched for the first time?

Entwine and Iconize
Passion ignites
Suspicion and betrayal
the voice of violence speaks again

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we'll never learn

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we never will


07. Free Of Doubt

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Who do I see?
Mirror let me know
You can't know me in the way I do
Can you see how I feel? I look different every day
I appear in many ways

Mirror please
show my reflection
Free of doubt
the naked truth

It goes deeper
Do you dare to know
What is hidden?
What's behind the superficial and external look
that no eyes will ever see

Mirror please
show my reflection
Free of doubt
the naked truth

Oh, mirror please
show my reflection
Free of doubt
the naked truth

Free of test and youth...

Mirror please
show my reflection
Free of doubt
the naked truth

Oh, mirror please
show my reflection
Free of doubt
the naked truth


08. Only Everything

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Couloured chambers, fine illusions, or a gate to space
Endless stairways, fine delusions, all under my command
I'd change the sky to paint it red
I'd change the colours of life, and play with time
It's all mine!
It's only everything, all that I wanted to be
Cause it's only everything

And wise, wiser than time, wiser than life, wiser than me, only me...

This is the end of all reason, the inner mirror reveals
There's more beyond what you're sure of, the fantasy of dreams
It's always there, the only emotion we all seem to keep down
There, while exploring dimensions
There is more, only everything

Dream! As bright or dark, as warm or hard the mind is set on
Dream! You lose control, you lose your freedom to confine it

I don't want to see this, I don't want this pain I never knew before

Feel, we're on the loose
Impressions are enlarged

I don't want to hear this, I don't want to dream to feel this again
Or to get a taste

This could be the end of all reason, the inner mirror reveals
There's more beyond what you're sure of, the fantasy of dreams
It's always there, the only emotion we all seem to keep down
There, still exploring dimensions
There is more, only everything

Become me, come feel along with all you see
Control me, control the keys
Do you dare to be
So deep, will you surrender now to your sleep?
Re-live your daydreams and
Come join this inner wonderland
Come let every emotion stand
To be right under your command
To let out fantasies
To change them into mysteries
Where time loses all memories
To luck and bitter agony
Re-live your daydreams awake

So join the magic of your life
Just dare to take the inner drive
To see it's only everything you can be doing tonight

Dream! as cool or hot, as smooth or rough the mind's creating
Dream! Enjoy the ride, enjoy the boundless journey you can make

I can be the maker, I can be the queen of time and twisted games

See you're on the loose
Images enlarged

I will need no reason
I just need the mirror inside me to reveal what's down below

This must be the end of all reason, the inner mirror reveals
There's more beyond what you're sure of, the fantasy of dreams
It's always there, the only emotion we all seem to keep down
There, while exploring dimensions
There is more, only everything


09. Strong

Lyrics by F. Jansen
I see your pain I see it grow
slowly inside you
You cannot control it
The hurting's ruthless, you cannot win

I see every smile you fake
Strong emotion, strong devotion to ignore the pain
To stand strong

Day after day, to be there for us, always
To pretend there's nothing wrong
How you feel or how it feels
No words describe it
Your body feels like a stranger
We cannot stop it, we cannot win

I see every smile you fake
Strong emotion, strong devotion to ignore the pain
To stand strong

I see every smile you fake
Strong emotion, strong devotion to ignore the pain
to stand strong

Every painful day, I'll be there for you, always
And together we will stand strong


10. Face Your Demons

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Jack in a box and here I am
You´re favourite mirror and your only honest reflection and your
guide
I am you deepest fear, the one you'll always hear
I am the devil in disguise, I am your dream

I am the sneaky connection to your most devilish reflection
The scary imagination of the real you

I represent what you deny
You're never scared so why are you running away
from the temptation of my words
Oh you don't know what I could do for you
Or I could put you through...
And you don't really understand that only fear leads this game

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I'm the one who'll tell terrifying, scary, dreadful tales

You'd better listen
That's some free advice
So what scares you the most
Let me know, be a good host
I want to tell you how your fear looks and how to play this game

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I'm the one who'll tell terrifying, scary, dreadful tales

War is breaking loose, it cannot be stopped
Cars are racing by and you're getting crushed
Friends are dying slow with a lot of pain
You just fear it all

Bleeding from a wound that you cannot see
And you're seeing things that can never be
God is not made up and he wants revenge
You just fear it all

Fear
You just fear, you can only fear
Face your demons

So did you know that all your memories
Color all you'll ever be in a dark and misty cloud that I am
floating on
I'm still the voice that speaks inside your head
The demon under your bed
I'm still the one who haunts your soul with devlish lust for
fright

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I'm the one who'll tell scary, dreadful tales

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I'm the one who'll tell terrifying, scary, dreadful tales


11. No Control

Lyrics by F. Jansen
I fight
I sweat
I drag the whole world along
I care
I break
I'm spiritless but strong
My will stands strong
I ache for inspirational and additional hearts to help me fight

Deep in my mind lies the map of my destiny
Deep in my heart lies the strength to conquer myself

In your nightmares
In your dreams lies the deepest fear
In ambitions
In belief lies the deepest strength

I doubt
Don't care
Don't see what has ever driven me
A wall
Will stand
All rending thoughts can't end
I'm paralyzed but strong
In need of comprihensible but sensational plans to fight

Deep in my mind lies the map of my destiny
Deep in my heart lies the strength to conquer myself


12. Forever

Lyrics by F. Jansen
Dead Girl:
I can see your pain
I can feel your loss
I can hear your words
I can but you are out of reach and so am I

Man:
You and me living in a dream
This end could not have been foreseen
The pain won't go away

No one understands my grief
All I've got is my belief
Still miss you every day

Dead girl:
I can't heal your pain
I cannot return, I cannot reply
I can't since you are out of reach and so am I

Man:
There is nothing left to be
You were all the world to me
The pain won't go away

No more reason to survive
Why am I the one alive
I miss you every day

Dead girl:
You know I am beyond reach forever

Man:
All these emotions create deeper oceans to drown in
My aspirations became unimportant once you were gone
Now the repression of all my agression is hounding me
And all our devotion to love and each other
Burried with you, Dead!

Bridge:
I feel the same tormenting pain
Don't stay behind so bitter

Dead Girl:
I have paid enough
I would have dried your tears if I could
I would be at your side
I would be there, forever more, that never came

Man:
I pay in pain
You have left me alone
My tears can't dry, I need you
Forever more, that never came

Dead Girl:
I'll love you always
Love me forever!


13. Taste The Day

If you don't see
If you forget what you have
Not just what you can get
If you cannot embrace it, you will lose what gives you
strength

Holding on to life
Fortune lies within

You can never love if you are not in love with life
itself
If you cannot embrace that you will never find true
strength

Holding on to life
Passion within!

Oh, feel the day
Can you remagine yourself?
Oh, taste the day
Will you remagine your life?

Can you relish in your luck, can you?
Or overcome your pain?
Can you be happy?

Oh, feel the day
Can you remagine yourself?
Oh, taste the day
Will you remagine your life?


14. Live And Learn

I'll be climbing another high mountain
I will climb and climb to see what lies far beyond all my restrictions
A glimpse of a better me

I'll be diving another deep ocean
I will dive and dive to reach for what lies beyond my restrictions
A deeper me

I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden

I'll be running another great distance
I will run and run to know what lies far beyond all my restrictions
To run into a faster me

I'll be loving another great challenge
I will love and love to feel what lies deep within my inner chambers
Where's the key!?

I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden

Keep moving on
Live and learn, the future lies open
Keep going strong
Search for the key, to open the next door

Now don't let words hold you back from dreaming
The future is yours and you're brave enough to choose your path
And to embrace all that comes to you
All you can bear
Hidden by dreams, hidden
So it seems
The challenge your fear
The courage is here, unlock!

I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden
