02. Phantom Divine (Shadow Empire)

I am all you ever wanted
I'm a new dimension
Immortality perfected, phantomized
Expansion of life
Generations Arrive
Finding every deviation
Just to keep the future alive

Under a phantom divine
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace
No applause for the old pantomime
In the shadows of our dreams
A phantom divine

I'm the face of the selected
I'm your chain reaction
I'm mortally rejected
I am the empire
Connecting the minds
And I'll die just to keep you alive

Under a phantom divine
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace
No applause for the old pantomime
In the shadows of our dreams
A phantom divine

Under a phantom divine
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace
No applause for the old pantomime
In the shadows of our dreams
A phantom divine

There is still hope for you
I am the empire
All that you see is true
I am the empire
There is still hope for us
Under a phantom divine

Under a phantom divine
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace
No applause for the old pantomime
Psycomosis of our dreams
A phantom divine

Under the phantom divine
Touched by the light
In ambrosial grace
No applause for the old pantomime
In the shadows of our dreams
A phantom divine

I am the empire
I am the empire
I am the empire
I am the empire

03. RavenLight

Silent tears in a sea of sorrow
If only God would talk to me
And promise me tomorrow

I'm drowning in myself as I
Am facing imperfection
But the pain makes me feel
I am still alive

In Ravenlight you came to me
From silence rose a symphony
Of coming winters white

Paralysed
Caught in desperation
Endless nights revisiting
Internal conversations

Finally I made my peace
With self intoxication
So I bleed just to know
I am not alone

In Ravenlight you came to me
From silence rose a symphony
Of coming winters white

May light embrace the darkest hour
Let it shine to orchestrate the shadows of the night

In Ravenlight you came to me
From silence rose a symphony
Of coming winters white

I love the way you sing to me
From silence to a soaring symphony
My rose in winter white

04. Amnesiac

Say my name
No beautifying filters
I'm craving that honest pain
These perfect lines
Are always out of place
Only you and I were born to break the chain

Caught in the framework
Dying to belong
Escape the wasteland
Don't forget who you are

Amnesiac
Don't let the world revolve around you
Don't wait another day
To re-erase your memory
Amnesiac
Don't let the dream dissolve without you
The more you know
The more they hold you back
Amnesiac

Mortal peace
Pushing through a needle
Observing your every move
A thousand lies
To avoid the question why
Cuz the more you know
The more they hold you back

Caught in the framework
Dying to belong
Escape the wasteland
Don't forget who you are

Amnesiac
Don't let the world revolve around you
Don't wait another day
To re-erase your memory
Amnesiac
Don't let the dream dissolve without you
The more you know
The more they hold you back
Amnesiac

No beautifying filters
Beyond the perfect lines
This effortless intrusion
Stop, erase, rewind

05. Burns To Embrace

We teach them to pretend
Not to break the line
To always look away
And never ask why

We sit beside the cradle
We tell them to be brave
But when the warning sounds
It echoes to the grave

We keep blindly moving
Along the same old path
No common sense
Would guide us back to life

Now look at us
The pinnacle conception
How we assumed
These walls would never fall

Sleep
Farewell forever child
Farewell

We are the last to walk the earth
And watch the passing ages slowly sail
How it burns to embrace
That below the lilac skies
Eternity is just a breath away

In lockstep to damnation
To our dying breath
Every reckless footprint
Leaves the smell of death

On the wilting meadows
We let them out to play
We said - No need to worry
Now they never may

Sleep
Farewell forever

We are the last to walk the earth
And watch the passing ages slowly sail
How it burns to embrace
That below the lilac skies
Eternity is just a breath away

06. In Twilight Hours

Tell me
Tell me God
What is left here for me
I'm a ghost in the window
Oh God set me free
And in twilight hours
I await forgiveness
That never comes

In an ocean deep
On a river wild
The water pulls me down
Never to be found again

You never really know
How could I know?
How many tears you own
Until the day they were gone
Gone without a trace
Until the day fell anew
Fell anew

Tell me
Tell me God
What is left here for me
I'm a ghost in the window
Oh God set me free
And in twilight hours
I await forgiveness
That never comes

Out there in the cold
Remember me
Along the broken road
Of reveries
When you're rising from the dead
Reviving from the dust again

Like in a winterstorm
I'll cover you
I'm burning in the cold
I'll keep you warm
But I know I'm not alone
As long as I believe in you

Tell me
Tell me why
Share your burden with me
You're the ghost in the window
And I'll set you free
When in twilight hours
You await forgiveness
That never comes

Tell me
Tell me God
What is left here for me
I'm a ghost in the window
Oh God set me free
And in twilight hours
I await forgiveness
That never comes

Forgiveness
Will come for you

07. Kevlar Skin

When fatal thoughts in winding sense
Strive to go past the terminal line
Is it cruel to ease the pain
Of those who face redemption?

Dare I take a leap of faith
Knowing my fears will materialize
I lay myself down at your grace
In stillness I surrender

Underneath this kevlar skin
I am waiting for you to uncover me
And in this armoured prison cell
I'm hiding my scars
Come discover me

Tell me what is pain if not just fear
Saying goodbye to a poisonous mind
I let it hurt and hope that you
Will be my soul's salvation

Underneath this kevlar skin
I am waiting for you to uncover me
And in this armoured prison cell
I'm hiding my scars
Come discover me

My solitude
A loyal friend
You kept my darkest secrets
And guarded my
Monotonous immortality
Keeping the fire away

08. Static

Stay
Until the morning light reveals my ruins
I was starving, now I hunger
To feel
And let your curiosity dismantle me

Now I just need your breath
Like a veil upon my skin

Come lay with me
This chemistry is static
Like space debris
We're perfectly chaotic
So come and merge your storm with mine
And save me

Stay
Hold me as I'm trying to survive
And wrap me in your comfort
My fears
I give them all to you to keep
Them safe for me

Cause I just need your breath
Like a veil upon my skin

Come lay with me
This chemistry is static
Like space debris
We're perfectly chaotic
So come and merge your storm with mine
And save me

09. MindFall Remedy

When you're trapped in your doubt and your anger
And you're wailing along
Like you relish the fail

When your life turns to be deception
And you're scratching the walls on your cell
Each step requires mad devotion

Mindfall Remedy
No one else will catch you
No one else will catch your fall
Only you possess the key
Mindfall remedy

All those rules were dissembling a future
And you feel like you burn in emotional hell

With the absence of love and compassion
Every stone is a mountain too high
Each step requires mad devotion

Mindfall Remedy
No one else will catch you
No one else will catch your fall
Only you possess the key
Mindfall remedy

I feel my tower crumbling
With my resistance low
I'm living in a vacuum
I'm failing to the core

In the core of my resistance
To face my inner self
Lies the key to my existence
To help myself

Mindfall Remedy
No one else will catch you
No one else will catch your fall
Only you possess the key
Mindfall remedy

10. Stories Unheard

Welcome in
I'll walk you through the unknown
Say a prayer if you wish

In my hand
All of the answers to your nightmares
Just let go of your broken dreams

Let the journey begin
Like a leaf in the wind
You'll be taken away to a world
Of visions unseen

Imagine if
Far beyond the set horizon
Nothing can turn into everything
But hurry before it's too late
And the old Ballerina takes her fall

Let me show you a place
Where the blind can see the light
Of a shooting star

Like a dancer up high
On a silver string
Let your actions define who you are
Tell the stories unheard

Follow me
I will take you to the unknown
Discover me
Let me in

Please honor me
With the choices you've been given
Remember me when my breath is cold
As the journey begins
Let the stories you tell be your own

Let me show you a place
Where the blind can see the light
Of a shooting star

Like a dancer up high
On a silver string
Let your actions define who you are
Tell the stories unheard

Though I love you
I'll leave you forever
Praise the time I was here
Celebrate all our chapter together
Have no fear when I'm gone

Let me show you a place
Where the blind can see the light
Of a shooting star

Like a dancer up high
On a silver string
Let your actions define who you are
Tell the stories unheard

11. Vespertine (My Crimson Bride)

She wrote down this line on the barren wall
To not forget her trail of dreams
But through the haze of her fevered pain
Her thoughts were hard to understand

Born without the name on the darkest day
Her future was already written
As fantasies turned to poems on the stone
The world began to come alive

She made me smile
Though years passed by

Come day, come night, my crimson bride
Is dancing on the fields of gold
This scenery will never fail
In my dreaming mind
Dreaming mind

All through these days
I have held your hand
We never left the velvet cage
Vespertine, our memories relive
My irresistible demise

She made me smile
Though years passed by

Come day, come night, my crimson bride
Is dancing on the fields of gold
This scenery will never fail
In my dreaming mind
Dreaming mind

Vague are the images around me
Cold is the color of the night

Come day, come night, my crimson bride
Is dancing on the fields of gold
This scenery will never fail
In my dreaming mind
Dreaming mind

12. The Proud And The Broken

[The Proud:]

Where have all the heroes gone
That used to bleed for us
Still holding on to fading lullabies
And fear the end when every note is lost

How can we know
If a glance beyond the shadow wall
Could free our souls

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on
While listening to the poetry of lies
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on
As ignorance of human life subsides

They left us behind and broke our pride
They told us to be brave
But like an insect drawn to light
We circle around the radiance of truth

How can we know
If a glance beyond the shadow wall
Could free our souls

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on
While listening to the poetry of lies
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on
As ignorance of human life subsides

I am you
You are me
Feel the grace
I set you free
I am the empire

[The Broken:]

I am learning to crawl
Denying the fall
In time I'll stand again

I am bare to the skin
I'm refusing to give in
You can't break my heart again

But I try
I keep trying
And I dying to forgive
All the matters is what's going to be

I try
I keep trying
I am dying to forgive
I am you
You are me

In the wake behind the virtuous we carry on
While listening to the poetry of lies
And darkened by the prosperous we carry on
As ignorance of human life subsides

20. The Last Day Of Sunlight

In the dark again
Theborderes to the old imagination
The inside of my soul
Once again
Lost my friend
So ashamed of what I've done

All alone again
With nothing but the silent voices screaming
From the dark side of my heart
Once again
There my friend
Where my fears are torn apart

Talk to me
Because the shadows won't stop haunting me
Talk to me
Stay by my side
To the bitter end

What if we fade like the midnight sun
In the last rays of darkness
A journey begun
What if we fall like the april rain
When the last day of sunlight swept the pain away

Reaching in again
To the void that I so carefully protected
Imaginary friend
Out of reach, safe from harm
My shell within a shell

Talk to me
Bacause the shadows won't stop haunting me
Talk to me
Stay by my side
To the bitter end

What if we fade like the midnight sun
In the last rays of darkness
A journey begun
What if we fall like the april rain
When the last day of sunlight swept the pain away
