02. The Illusionist

Racing hours
Chasing sunrise in my heart
In the depths of darkness
Elusive illusions die

It's so easy to bow down to
The shadows of the mind

Inside the deranged theatre
We must dream with open eyes
Dreamers of the day -
The future's ours

Believe in tomorrow -
That fleeting promise of light
Just hold me tight
While the night's dark
Deceive me bravely if you must

Welcome to our illusion...

Inside the deranged theatre
We must dream with open eyes
Dreamers of the day -
The future's ours

Still I can feel
A cold hand's touch
Wrap around my neck and tease
Until I can't breathe...
Dare I dream again - He asks
But all I know is dream I must...

'...Tell me what's out there
For you fool?
There's nowhere else to run
Where will you go?
You'll fail
Youll lose
You will suffer
And what end?
The world's so cruel...'

It could be that sometimes
You have to break
Your beloved chains
And leave with nothing
But a heart ache
In a cage you cannot live...
I cannot live...


03. The Descent

Broken inside
But hands soaked
In blood...

{Murderer}

..The future's
Finally opened up.

The lies...
The words like knives...
But whose blood's
On the steel?
A criminal mind
A terrible night
A silent escape to life -
After the kill

Surreal & absurd
The world rushes
So fast..

But what can beat the thrill
Of freedom
The midnight air
Inside your lungs
A universe of possibilities
Opened up before you...

As darkness soars above
Her anger alights the fading clouds
In tremors of rage
A thundering Earth
Unleashed the sorrow of skies
Upon the world
As her anger turns - to fear

But she must run and take the blame
She must fight two fights
For one great mistake
No matter where this road will end
She must run or lose herself

As the distance grows
Her tears may run dry
But deep in her heart
The memories mar
The past remains an aching scar

'You're nothing without me!
There's no more to this life!
There's nowhere else to run!'

'...I may not know where this path may go
But my heart must fly
And I'll sacrifice all that I must
And I'll dream and fight
To keep my illusions alive

Forgive the past
Remember: tomorrow's a new day'

Surreal and absurd
The world rushes past so fast...


04. Deep Inside

Those wounds may run deep
But finally she's free
But is she like the others -
Too scared to fly?
Spread your wings and rise
Hight towards the stars

'Forget all that's been
And all I've seen
How life has changed
And my world's been turned
To dust time after time
And my heart
Frozen into ice again:
Does it make me who I am?'

It's time to follow your own path...

Are you master of your time here?
Are you master of your own fate?
Is it worth fighting?
Is it the end you seek?

'I'm ready to leave
I'm ready to go
But the pull of the past
Is far too strong
How can I let it go?
Let me go...'

You know the only life
You'll lose
Is the one
That's now yours
How will you go on?
Is your own choice...

'But even when
Just to live
Is an act of courage
Time flows
Relentlessly...'

Are you master of your
Time here?
Are you master
Of your own fate?
Is it worth fighting?


05. Broken

Murdered desires
Will never be tamed again
Haunting underneath
The cold stare of reality
The earth's slipping
Underneath her feet
And loss
Her friend long lost
Returns for another embrace
And it's no use
That this sorrow
Is bearing gifts
She never sought
That flowers bloom
In the depths of her wounds...

Creeping behind
And wasted years
Memories of a cold embrace
That send the ancient sea
Pour down her broken face

Immersed in sound
The madness descends
In shattered illusions
The world now rests
In emotional darkness
And there's nothing left
But the memory of the pain

Soothing the crazed solitude
The madness seeks redress
To heal the wounds
The other hand has slashed

Immersed in sound
The madness descends
In shattered illusions
The world now rests
In emotional darkness
And there's nothing left
But the memory of the pain

'And after all we've done
And after all we've seen
Have we learned nothing at all
How can we go on
How can we begin on the same path
We've been down before

There must be a way
Tell me...
How can we abandon all we've got
That matters so much
I know
It'll never be the same
And all the future holds
Is emptiness
That the past will become nothing
But a failure
Yet we both know...
It's over...'


06. End Game

It's over
You know it's all over
Just let the tide
Sweep over us now
I'm ready to go
To go under
Oh take me under...

I'm ready to quit this fight
I just can't sell my body and soul
It's all a game alright
Well let the dice roll won't wait to see where it stops
I played my turn...

It's been too long
Was it over before it begun
It's take its toll
Turning friends into foes
Giving you all
Just to take everything
You've had
Or dreamed of

The game is played
The winners lost
The stage is empty
There are no more
Strings to left to break...

For every good moment
There's a million
That crushed my soul
Soon every way's
A Faustian bargain
The road back's uncertain

The game is played
The winners lost
The stage is empty
There are no more
Strings to left to break...


07. Surrender

Care free or lost?
Has she forgotten
How to dream?
The silence inside
Is growing so loud...

'Where're the dreams
Worth dreaming?
The friends worth keeping?
The future
That's worth the ride?
What are the things
Worth knowing?
There must be a better
Version of ourselves
Somewhere inside
Deep inside
We must know
Wrong from right
Or maybe we're just waiting
To find out who we are

{Wait for your chance to fly}

Inside our walls
Trapped but contented
A past forgotten
A future stalled
A fast gain
A fast ride
Without goals,
Without pride
Without care
For what is right
Oh how we cry
Every time
Our chains are undone...

And beyond
Our treasured delusions
And when we find
Our fame & fortune
Finally gone
What's left
Is who we really are
Behind our masks
Deep inside
True and right

The answers aren't hard to find
Just dare to live
'Cause 'every heartbeat
Is a universe of possibilities...'

And your heart
May get broken
And your path
May lead nowhere
But you know you must go
Where your heart leads you
'Cause love and loss
Go hand in hand
Leave your fears behind
Surrender to the tide
Of life
Surrender to the tide...


08. All I Am

'Daring my voice
Once more
I invite the pain
To come with me and stay
For another endless
Night and day
To hold my hand
And tear me apart...'

Emerging from the silence
A muse misunderstood
She knows, oh she knows
That some wounds
Will never heal
Never fade away
But you must go on -
Go on and live

So come what may
The words entwine with sound
A lone voice
Against the roaring tide
Whether or not
The world will stop to listen

'And suddenly I am
A world apart
Sinking
Through the world beneath
And the skies above
I've arrived
This time with no way out
Touching raw flesh
With every sound...'

Through sorrow and pain
The only way's forward,
Through adversity to the stars

'..And if I am to fall
And if I am to fail
I know you'll be there...
You'll be there...'

And we must run sometimes
And take the blame
We must fight two fights
For one great mistake
No matter
Where this road will end
We must live
And give all ourselves

'So come what may,
I won't try n' escape
Without this love
What's life but an empty dream
So have my blood
And have all my dreams
Have the tears I cried
And all I've never been
The moments missed
And all that made me feel
It's all worth it
I know
Deep inside
I've always known:
It's all I am...'
