01. The Masterplan

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
Look at me
And tell me if there's something
Strange you see
Am I special - something's wrong
- can't be the only one
Talk to me stare me in the eyes
And say you know it too
It really doesn't matter
I know your fear - seen it all
The truth

We are all a part of
Forced to live within
A conspiracy for ages
The masterplan

Tell you about my theory
Cleanse myself from secrecy
Prove it's not all fantasies
All to live in decency
My quest for answers
The truth of what lies behind
The search is over
And I'm in shock of what I've found

We are all a part of
Forced to live within
A conspiracy for ages
The masterplan

[solo danhage / englund]

We are all a part of
Forced to live within
A conspiracy for ages
The masterplan

02. Rulers Of The Mind

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
You can't possibly know me
What I feel cause even I don't
A strange sensation of never being lonely
Has made me question the essence of existence
...of life

Are we parts of a puzzle
Small pieces in a major plan
Fuppets on a string being run by a master
Formed and shaped like clay

[solo englund / solo danhage]

I'm trying but failing unanswered cries unites
The struggling of finding the truth behind the lies
I'm trying they're laughing my rulers of the mind
I'm trying ...I'm trying

Their constant presence deceives me
I can't tell when i'm awake or when i dream
And my hiding is useless
My anxiety reveals me
Gives me away

I'm trying but failing unanswered cries unites
The struggling of finding the truth behind the lies
I'm trying they're laughing my rulers of the mind
I'm trying ...I'm trying...


03. Watching The Skies

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
Time has come to ask myself
What future lies ahead
The weakness of my soul
Awakes the fury that was dead
And what is it that brings out the shame

In my dreams i travel
Lost confused
Still searching
Watching the skies
All my sleep is wasted
Awake or not
Still waiting
Watching the skies

My home is no longer
A place where safety can be found
Constantly looking over my shoulder
Forced into the darkest corner of the mind
I find myself not trusting anyone
And distrust leaves you lonely
The hiding from the fear
Brings me closer to despair
Feelings of doubt joins me

I fight to keep myself above the surface
I try but the waves i swim are just growing stronger
The light's getting distant and i am drifting further
i'm being swallowed by the night

[solo karlsson]

In my dreams i travel
Lost confused
Still searching
Watching the skies
All my sleep is wasted
Awake or not
Still waiting
Watching the skies

Please be the eyes
That guides me through
Please be the hands to lead me
In search for the shocking truth
Please be my courage
My will to win
Please understand and listen
Please be my friend


04. State Of Paralysis

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
See my sorrow
My tears when they fall
Feel my anguish
Where's my shelter when I am cold
My eyes seek something
But finds nothing at all
My souls screams for mercy
Where's my guidance when I'm lost

The will I had ain't strong enough
The strength I seek ain't there
And my world is dead
My future's broken
Cause it all stays the same

They're coming
They're coming... here


05. The Encounter

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
Like leaves on trees in fall
I'm shivering I'm falling
Like the screams from a new-born child
So innocent so fragile
Screaming struggling trying
I want to see what the future holds
This life in fear is no life at all

The will I had ain't strong enough
And the strength I seek ain't there
My world is dead
My future's broken
And it all stays the same

They're coming
They're coming here to stay
They're coming
They're taking me away...

I beg for a helping hand
I'm reaching I am searching
But no...
And i pray for an ear that listens
My hope's washed away
I'm here alone

[solo danhage]

I hear them
They're coming
Quickly through the hallway
The door opens
Helpless again

The will I had ain't strong enough
The strength i seek ain't there
My world is dead
My future's broken
Cause it all stays the same

They're coming
They're coming here to stay
They're coming
They're taking me away...
They're coming
Only to leave me in shame
Simply leave me...


06. Mark Of The Triangle

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
The sun is back again the day is here
Try to recall try to remember
What night brought upon me this time
There it is I've seen it before recognise the shape
I'm scarred but not sore
Recognise the shape i recognise the shape
I've been marked by the triangle

Screams for answers
Lost beyond control
And I
I try to find a reason
But here I am a hollow soul
Here I am
I've been marked by the triangle

The night has come
It brings the fear
It's never-ending everlasting
What was that sound
Is somebody here
I can sense their presence
The room is getting colder

Screams for answers
Lost beyond control
And I
I try to find a reason
But here I am a hollow soul
Here I am
I've been marked by the triangle

[solo englund / danhage]

It's getting harder to breath
Please go away
You've already taken my dignity
And what more could you possibly need
The darkness is gone
It's day...

Screams for answers
Lost beyond control
And I
I can't find a reason
So here I am a hollow soul
Here I am
I've been marked by the triangle


07. Dark Waters

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
Twilight
Still not dark
The snow on the ground sheds some light
A silhouette not taller than a child
Appears in the doorway
Too strange to be real yet too real to be a dream
Immense fear grabs a hold of me
I'm paralysed numb and naked
Branches passes me I see treetops beneath me
A floor in grey below me slowly shuts like an iris

Activity - and all turns black once again
Lunacy - my weakness force me to follow
Encountering a depth of hate never seen
Blood runs cold I cease exist and my soul is hollow

Deprived of all pride
I've been stripped of all value
I'm worth nothing here
And I know no-one

She stares at me
At least I perceive her as a she
And she speaks to me I can hear her
Her lips doesn't move
Why can't I be left alone to live my life in harmony
The visitors by night makes this a living nightmare

Deprived of all pride
I've been stripped of all value
Worth nothing here
And I know no-one

[solo englund]

Deprived of all pride
I've been stripped of all value
Worth nothing here
And i know no-one
Deprived of all pride
I've been stripped of all value
On the other side
Of the dark waters


08. Different Worlds

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
The silence awakes me
My heartbeat would so easily reveal me
Who am I what is left is it my mind
That constantly deceives me

I am beginning to doubt me
If what I feel and see is real
It seems as if I exist in different worlds
There is one in darkness
One is loss of time
One of self-doubt and one of hurt

All my pride has left me
My value as a human has been extinguished
My close ones' those who love
Disbelieve me won't believe me
So I got no-one to confide in
And what worse is
I'm beginning to accept this
My body's become my prison
My keepers are what you would call...
Fiction

I am beginning to doubt me
If what I feel and see is real
It seems as if i exist in different worlds
There is one in darkness
One is loss of time
One of self-doubt and one of hurt


09. Misled

Music by Evergrey
Lyrics by Tom S. Englund
Strapped in a bed with no clothes
The room has no windows
I try to remember last night
But there's nothing
It is cold and my body starts to shiver
I try to fight it but trying makes me nauseous
I'm having a hard time deciding
If this is where they take me
Where they take me

I'm crawling back to sleep
And i still can't believe
Howcome you lost your faith in me
I spoke with nothing but honesty

I don't recognise the silence
I can feel it the reality of it scares me
Sounds of steps outside
Keys in the door-lock
White robes they're human
I've been misled

I'm crawling back to sleep
And I still can't believe
Howcome you lost your faith in me
I spoke with nothing but honesty

[solo danhage]

I'm crawling back to sleep
And I still can't believe
Howcome you lost your faith in me
Why did you lose your faith
