01. The Great Pretender

Once born in the arms of god
But only to surrender
To something greater than us
To a great pretender

When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
What is there to know?
When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
I will follow

Once born in the arms of god
I ran into the storm
Into the hopeless sea engulfed
All visions broken, dropped and torn

We will prevail
They're blessed to fail

When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
What is there to know?
When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
I will follow

(I will follow, follow, follow)
(I will follow, follow, follow)
(I will follow, follow, follow)

We will never surrender
To your great pretender

We will prevail
They're blessed to fail
We will prevail
Pretenders
They're blessed to fail

When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
What is there to know?
When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
(I will follow)

When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
What is there to know?
When you are walking
Where do you go?
What is there to get?
I will follow

(I will follow, follow, follow)
(I will follow, follow, follow)
I will follow


02. I'm Gone

Today we don't have dreams to chase
Just a promise
Just a promise
The hope is written in my face
I'm gone

The wish for better days
Erased by memories
Buried under the soil

A promise in your head
But nothing's gonna change
There comes a point you'll realize

Today we don't have dreams to chase
Just a promise
Just a promise
The hope is written in my face
I'm gone
Without a trace

Too far, no eyes could see
A world in crushed dreams
It's touching me from inside

A promise in your head
But nothing's gonna change
There comes a point you'll realize

Today we don't have dreams to chase
Just a promise
Just a promise
The hope is written in my face
I'm gone
Without a trace

A promise of a better place
Forgotten dreams, forgotten past
Times we've had were numbered days
In the end yesterdays won't last
Open your eyes just to make clear
No tears will blind your sight
I apologize

Today we don't have dreams to chase
Just a promise
Just a promise
The hope is written in my face
I'm gone

Today we don't have dreams to chase
Just a promise
Just a promise
The hope is written in my face
I'm gone
(Oh, I'm gone)

Just a promise
Just a promise
(The hope is written in my face)
Just a promise
Just a promise
(I'm gone without a trace)
Just a promise
Just a promise
Just a promise
(Just a promise)
Just a promise


03. Dead City Sleepers

We are sleepers in dead cities
This is what remains of our innocence
I die, I die a hundred times a day
Why has fate forsaken me?
Why has God forsaken me?

Only a broken lullaby
Dead city sleepers
Still taunts me
Through a sleepless night
Dead city sleepers

We are persecutors in pale shells
Who hide demons beneath their skins
We have planted dead and dying trees
Tell me why has God forsaken me

I died a hundred times
No more tears to cry
It's true that I'm caught in a lie
You ignored my cries

Only a broken lullaby
Dead city sleepers
Still taunts me
Through a sleepless night
Dead city sleepers

I died a hundred times
No more tears to cry
It's true that I'm caught in a lie
You ignored my cries

Only a broken lullaby
Still taunts me
Oh, through a sleepless night
(Sleepless night)

Only a broken lullaby
Dead city sleepers
Still taunts me
Through a sleepless night
Dead city sleepers
Oh, through a sleepless night


04. The Arsonist

(Fire, fire)
(Fire, fire)
(Fire, fire)
(Fire, fire)

Fire, fire
Fire, fire
(The arsonist)
(The arsonist)

No consolation
No, you won't fail
Generations
To be impaled
The order of old
Is non-existent
Is this death worth
Living for?

What will remain?
My dearest desire
Is fire, fire
Fire, fire

The Earth will turn
To a funeral pyre
Fire, fire
Fire, fire

(The arsonist)
(The arsonist)

In dry rivers
Man seeks to drown
Keep desires
Faith carves in stone
Now seek out, cut down
The demon's curse
In vain we
Perish with the earth

Now
They die by words of fire
Now
And this is what remains

Fire, fire
Fire, fire

What will remain?
My dearest desire
Is fire, fire
Fire, fire

The Earth will turn
To a funeral pyre
Fire, fire
Fire, fire

(The arsonist)
(The arsonist)
(The arsonist)
(The arsonist)


05. Darkness Divine

I will lead you through a
Darkness divine
There is no light under
A blood-red sky

Take control
Of your world

We are cursed
Born in never
Ending ignorance
We are cursed
Seduced by words
Of sweet bitterness

There's no solace without
A sacrifice
Ancient, diseased winds are
Going to rise

Take control
Of this hell

We are cursed
Born in never
Ending ignorance
We are cursed
Seduced by words
Of sweet bitterness

Baptized in flames

Swim through the mire
To come back as a new man
Atone for sins
A sacrifice of a heretic

Swim through the mire
Break your empty visions
You won't find solace
No, you won't find solace

Take control
Of your world

We are cursed
Born in never
Ending ignorance
We are cursed
Seduced by words
Of sweet bitterness
(Baptized in flames)


06. As We Come Undone

Today we let the curtain rise
Generation occupied
Welcome to your empty lives
Led astray with blinded eyes

No utter solitude oppressive enough
To escape your fate
(To escape your fate)

We come undone
We burn away the path we're on
All hope is gone
As we come undone
We come undone
While the great nations sleep

Idealists? Pacifists? Anarchists? Hypocrites
Non-believers, starry-eyed
Drifted hope, comatose, social values over-dosed
Gone astray with blinded minds

No utter solitude oppressive enough
To escape your fate
Escape

We come undone
We burn away the path we're on
All hope is gone
As we come undone
We come undone
While the great nations sleep

We die in slumber
Escape
We die in slumber
From fate

We come undone
As we burn away
The path we're on
All hope is gone

We come undone
We burn away the path we're on
All hope is gone

We come undone
(We come undone)
(We come undone)
(As we burn away)
The path we're on
(All hope is gone)
(All hope is gone)
(As we come undone)

As we come undone
(We come undone)
(We come undone)
We come undone
While the great nations sleep
While the great nations sleep


07. Hurt

Pulling me under the water
Where human glory disappears
(Disappears)

Escaping this life seems so easy
But I fear a thousand fears

Down to the bottom sand
Fragile life comes to end

Sailing in the sea of tears
Sorrow, I owe you everything
Sailing in the sea of tears
I can feel the hurt again

Guided by whispering voices
I feel the silence everywhere

Like memories from my past
Why should I live
In a world where nothing lasts?

Down to the bottom sand
Fragile life comes to end

Sailing in the sea of tears
Sorrow, I owe you everything
Sailing in the sea of tears
I can feel the hurt again

Old thoughts are running through my head
Can I release myself from chains?
Will I ever forgive myself?

Sailing in the sea of tears
Sorrow, I owe you everything
Sailing in the sea of tears
I can feel the hurt again

Oh, I can feel
Oh, I can feel
I can feel the hurt again

Oh, I can feel
Oh, I can feel
I can feel the hurt again


08. The Final Storm

Now what's left of our
So-called revolution?
Never more following the glorified
Policy of needless waste by
Adding fuel to the fire
Will we ever brave that storm?

A new aeon rises
(A new aeon rises)
We are here to stay
(We are here to stay)
May my voice be the storm
We are, we are
We are the storm

Unceasing acts of excess forced
Mankind to creep into the depths
Now what's left of our
So-called revolution?

We are no longer
Obedient slaves
We are no longer
Needless waste

What are we now?
We are the change

A new aeon rises
(A new aeon rises)
We are here to stay
(We are here to stay)
May my voice be the storm
We are, we are
We are the storm

Does it hurt see your bridges burn?
We're the storm before the final calm
We are, we are the storm

(We are, we are)
(We are the storm)
(We are, we are)
(We are the storm)

(We are here to stay)
(We are, we are)
We are
The storm

May my voice be the storm
We are, we are
We are the storm


09. Small Town Boy

(Whoa, oh-oh-oh)
(Whoa, oh-oh-oh)

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case

Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face

Mother will never understand
Why you had to leave
But the answers you seek
Will never be found at home

Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
Run away
Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
Run away

Pushed around
And kicked around
Always a lonely boy
You were the one
That they'd talk about around town
As they put you down

And as hard as they would try
They'd hurt to make you cry
But you never cried to them
Just to your soul
Oh, you never cried to them
Just to your soul

Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
Run away
Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
Run away

Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
(Run away)
Run away
Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
(Run away)
Run away

Cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry

Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
(Run away)
Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
(Run away)

Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
(Run away)
Run away
Run away, turn away
Run away, turn away
(Run away)
Run away


10. My Pain

Night fades to day
And days fade to darkness
Please, let me out of here
I'm trapped in nothingness

Seems like this time
Is right to dry
All of the tears
That I have been crying
But I'm too weak
I feel so numb
And isolated
From everyone

A single tear
Escapes my eye
I cure my pain
With a razor blade

Days have passed
Years gone by
Dreams torn apart
My cheating mind
Attempts to kill
My aching heart

Seems like this time
Is right to dry
All of the tears
That I have been crying
But I'm too weak
I feel so numb
And isolated
From everyone

A single tear
Escapes my eye
I cure my pain
With a razor blade

I cure my pain
With a razor blade

Seems like this time
Is right to dry
All of the tears
That I have been crying
But I'm too weak
I feel so numb
And isolated
From everyone

Seems like this time
Is right to dry
All of the tears
That I have been crying
But I'm too weak
I feel so numb
And isolated
From everyone

A single tear
Escapes my eye
I cure my pain
With a razor blade


11. Dead City Sleepers

We are sleepers in dead cities
This is what remains of our innocence
I die, I die a hundred times a day
Why has fate forsaken me?

I died a hundred times
It's true that I'm caught in a lie

No more tears to cry
You ignored my cries
Why has God forsaken me?

Why has God forsaken me?
Why has God forsaken me?
Why has God forsaken me?
Why has God forsaken me?

Only a broken lullaby
Still taunts me
Oh, through a sleepless night

Only a broken lullaby
Still taunts me
Oh, through a sleepless night

Dead city sleepers we are

Persecutors in pale shells
Who hide demons beneath their skins
We have planted dead and dying trees
(Dead city sleepers)
Tell me why has God forsaken me
(Dead city sleepers)
Why has God forsaken me?
