01. Above And Beyond

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
Walking in the dark
I have taken the wrong way home, I've been
Lost for days and seen no familiar face
No one wants to see a weak being

And I've been lied to too many times
Been let down and fallen behind
Withhold the name I bear
And give me a chance for my revenge

Read past the words that bleed
Read to the core to keep
Soar and rise to see
Above and beyond me


With one wish withstand
All the scorn all the masses demand
And I've had reason to come to the conclusion
No eyes will open without a raised hand

Read past the words that bleed
Read to the core to keep
Soar and rise to see
Above and beyond me


02. Flooding Light

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
This road turns
The thief returns
The holes in his head flooding light
He stole the sun
Where it all began
No one understands a word, no one

Thoughts that burn inside
Rule just one at a time
Hurt and hypnotized
Do not dare defy


The wind is cool on his skin
Caressing like the air was just for you
In freefall
The mind can stall
And the pavement kisses
In the most subtle way

Thoughts that burn inside
Rule just one at a time
Hurt and hypnotized
Do not dare defy


03. In The Eyes Of The Mourning

Music by J. Palmroth, J. Poikonen, S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
Come high tide
Beware the pain
The scars they stay the same
What I've lived
And what I've known
The stones I've thrown

In the eyes of the mourning are veins of death
The bleeding
It won't stop until all tears have shed


What I am
An ending stream
Dark water calm and deep
The life that once flowed in him
The air, we now breathe

In the eyes of the mourning are veins of death
The bleeding
It won't stop until all tears have shed


04. Aisle Of Array

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
To speak in past tenses
Leaves life defenseless
They're hiding they're waiting
To beat you senseless
But endure through the pain
The lucid hours maintain
This state of consciousness
Makes you feel nothing
Once you are taken
You won't be put back to your place
Down in the darkest cave...
...The brightest of days
The wait will be over soon

With one push you are over
In an aisle of array
In a world
So serene and undoubtful
Of the way that you are
As the only


Exist without memories
To drift through deep seas
Once the feeling wears off
The sense of floating is gone
Down from the highest sky
The lowest of minds

The wait will be over soon

With one push you are over
In an aisle of array
In a world
So serene and undoubtful
Of the way that you are
As the only


05. Past The Gates

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
Past the gates
Your soul creates
Lies a path
That radiates
In a world of sterile crowds
We are part of the system
Closed from wisdom
Buried words, running deep
Stinging into a question
Suggestion

In my days
I've not heard
A stronger sound
And I believe
In silence lies
The power to hear
Not in fear
Not being austere


Through the halls
A whisper calls
In a world of broken glass
We are hovering over
A four-leaf clover
But no one knows when to end
And for how long until it's over

In my days
I've not heard
A stronger sound
And I believe
In silence lies
The power to hear
Not in fear
Not being austere


06. Still The Spirit Stays

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
Climbing up a broken womb
The grief was on you
A life left dead
Words never said
Still the spirit stays

Frozen, broken, forever taken away
It was never your choice
To reap what was sown


Climbing up a broken womb
A dream is now true
What once was
Is now no more
So still the spirit stays

Frozen, broken, forever taken away
It was never your choice
To reap what was sown


07. In Endless Endeavour

Music & lyrics by S. Ojanen
Here lie only the lonely
Weathered pain down on me
And I keep protecting the only
Remaining piece, forgotten foul
Soul of the one and the only
Kept safe, guarded so boldly
Slain, scorn
Away from the watching eye


Here rest the weary the wicked
Once beheld, now given away
For all those restlessly breathing
Once been told, this story lives
And I keep forgetting the only
Thing I once thought was solely
For those eyes in the mirror
Not dead, in endless endeavour


Never before have I been seen like this
Never so torn, never without bliss
I have now seen the weight of my being
My aim was never to fall, to rise again
But I have now seen the weight of my being
My stain

Was never to fall and be pulled up again
To let myself feel the weakness I pretend
I have now felt the corner not seen; my aim


08. Sewers

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
It is faith that leads you onward
The unreal that stays alive
It's a fairy they believe in
The queen of blinded eyes
She sings a song so luring
Every note falls deep
It's the void that keeps them feeding
The emptiness they need
"Come and follow me
Deep deeper down
A few more steps
We're nearly there
Come and follow me
Deep deeper down"

Underneath live
The scolded creatures
In the sewers they shine
Strong, clear crimson red
Reflections of a dawn unending


It is fear that keeps you crawling
The unknown that lures you down
But the melody dies and deeper
All you hear is a growling sound
"Come and follow me
Come deeper down
Let me see
Your aching eyes
Come closer
We're nearly there"

Here in the gutter
Love is another
World that will vanish
The stronger the light is

Underneath live
The scolded creatures
In the sewers they shine
Strong, clear crimson red
Reflections of a dawn unending


09. Lines Of Silver Blood

Music by S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
Lines of silver blood
A sound that is so steady
Falling from the clouds
On my weary hands

The weight, I cannot bear
It draws me to the center
Of the universe
A touch, it opens me

See, there the traitor lies
My mind, it was unready
To sing a horrid tale
Of somewhere I won't return to

The fear of what I can't see
Is all I'll never know
Heard as so surreal
In a soothing sound


Crows with liquid eyes
They are hovering over
The pure part of my mind
Where I rest my head

Hear, the words they mutter out
My mind is still unready
Feel the beaks sting through my flesh
They are making their way in

The fear of what I can't see
Is all I'll never know
Heard as so surreal
In a soothing sound


10. Ire

Music by J. Poikonen, S. Ojanen & V. Viitanen
Lyrics by S. Ojanen
Far, where dawn never ends
Away, are echoes the old lady sings
Crying that years
Years I've been trapped in this cave
Inside, a candle consumed by its flame

And all of the repenting words aside

I desire to hurt you
Desert the world you belong to
In the forest where I lay

My hungry heart
My mellow mind
All my thoughts
They're weak in kind
They're dreams

Red is the mountain of mice
Rotten on the hour of demise
The pile, it resembles a crown
And every roaring squel
Is shame in disguise
Coming clear

And all that you wished for
Is becoming right now
Still it stays, in troubling ways
The ire

Far, where dawn never ends
Away, the old lady sings
For years I've been trapped in this cave
A candle consumed by its flame
