Through Fire And Darkness We crumble Under the sands of Time In sadness And anger In laughter Under the Sands of Time Arrival Survival Revival Under the Sands of Time Created Grow older And buried Under the Sands of Time

Another night has summoned demons from my past to wage a war In my mind the endless tempest carries on Another flashback to the scorching fire opens up a door Long lost days are scars, engraved upon my soul In the eyes of my agony Memories are written in stone How could I embrace them as my own? Another night of lucid images deprives me of my sleep Screams of pain, roaring madness creeps inside of me Another tear, yet I am here to face the fear And seek the answer in the eyes of my agony Memories are written in stone How could I embrace them as my own? A STENCH OF DEATH FILLS MY LUNGS WITH TERROR EVERY NIGHT I BURN IN THE SICKENING FIRE LOSING MY YOUTH IN A FOUNTAIN OF TEARS SCREAM AS THE FLAMES GROW HIGHER LOOK IN MY EYES, CAN'T YOU SEE THEY'RE ROTTEN? WON'T YOU HAVE MERCY? DARE YOU LEAVE MY SOUL IN THIS BROKEN BODY? SO I KNEEL BEFORE YOUR PEDESTAL BEGGING YOU TO LEAVE ME BE FREE ME FROM THIS TRAGEDY My life has passed before my eyes each night since I can recall Have I paid my debt, or must this hell go on? I hear the reaper calling my name Laughing madly as I fall again, in vain Why is he blind to the pain in the eyes of my agony?

Turning, Burning, Sands out of Time Scarring, Forging, Dust scatters, Burns in time Dials forever will turn The skies fall apart, The skies fall down The skies fall apart, The skies fall apart I see a crystal ball, wondering, why oh why... Open your eyes to a beautiful rebirth Watch the sun go down to an endless sea Open your heart to embrace the silent sky Touch me, show me how you cry One endeavor Scarred forever Screams of pain, roaring madness creeps inside of me Scorching scars, I am begging you to let me be Tainted clouds, how could I have seen the prophecy? In my nightmare there are corridors I must not see Fear of death, in a life of endless agony A voice of hope in the sky of broken harmony Reap the fruits, sip the poison from my memory Sands of time, tell me why can I only See an endless sea, of endless fire and misery WE ALL CLING TO THE ALTER OF TIME, TICKING LIKE BOMBS - WE RUN FOR COVER, FALL DOWN TO OUR KNEES IN FEAR SACRIFICED, SCARRED BY THE DIALS THAT FOERVER TURN We're all slaves To the dials that forever turn We all burn And the dials they forever turn We're all slaves To the dials that forever turn We all burn And the dials they forever turn Forging Scars forever Turning Time Sea, oh endless sea, I seek the Path to where I once belonged There's a map engraved upon my soul Voices fade, names forgotten underneath the sand Silhouettes paint a portrait I don't understand Sink your teeth, drown my haunted boat in ecstasy Broken anchors leave one free to explore the sea Oh, endless sea, I seek the Path to where I once belonged There's a map engraved upon my soul By the dials that forever turn We're all slaves To the dials that forever turn We all burn And the dials they forever turn We're all slaves To the dials that forever turn We all burn And the dials they forever turn Who can bear the light? All is one smear Who can bear the light? Who can bring a start? Small debris float in clouds of airy disarray Butterflies Take a small leap into one uncharted world The stars will slowly gather to smile above your unfolding path And the roots and the birds will trace New prophecies in earth and skies Our bodies, our hands, our minds, our look Are the only instruments The only map, The only guide

Gazing through the crystal ball Memories reveal the toll That burdened my mind And tortured my soul Flaming shadows of the past Die out and reveal at last The stars, the roads, The path unfolds I can see the ocean now, Stretching out too far And call out to the sea Through a thousand grains of sand Looking past the shells For who I used to be... Through time looking for who I used to be Sands of time Deep beneath the sands of time I've found a gem and made it mine Blue as the sea, red as wine Sip the poison from the truth, spit it out and taste a strange desire If I only chose that path Took the other turn Would I be alone? Through FIRE And DARKNESS We CRUMBLE Under the sands of Time In SADNESS And ANGER In LAUGHTER Under the Sands of TIME Arrival Survival Revival Under the Sands of Time Created Grow older And buried Under the Sands of Time So treasure And savour Each moment Under the sands of time This one life Will be over For one day the reaper will come for you too...

Green fields now painted black, I can't go on and I can't go back Long lost days of the past Have to go over there, can I go over there at last? Love, Lust, things that I've lost Running from shadows but at what cost? Trace far, back to my life What was before the rain, what was it like before the strife In the eyes of my dream I can look deep And cherish the memory Meadows grow back Embraced in my story.... Home, Friends, things that I miss Snow on the mountains and skies of bliss Strange tears guiding my way Could it be happiness? could it be really here to stay? In the eyes of my agony Memories are written in stone Finally I embrace them as my own Through fire and torches of pain I am the one who made it through the rain The echoes are songs in my ear I am the one who rose above the fear Through fire and torches in pain I am the one who made it through the rain Look up, the sky is now clear I am the one who fought so hard and made it here Slow, fast, scars that run deep Grasped like a treasure for us to keep Blood, sweat, just flesh and bone All of my choices were not in vain now they're mine alone In the eyes of my agony... Through fire and torches of pain… And though the reaper awaits and the clocktowers chime I see the fire put out by the Sands of Time

Arrowhead 05:07
Timeless glory is what you're running for Even if I offer my eternal soul I'm waiting for your mind to let you know: Only your whole heart Is what i'm aching for I love it when you're looking with your eyes Finding me alone I'm begging don't you go Arrowhead pointed towards the sun Up beyond the sky is where you're aiming You don't know them, you don't know us, What's the rush? You're not even happy when it's raining Tell me, will you ever look me in the eyes? Save me from this nightmare, Darling don't you go You broke the lock, went out our door And watched me fall, Watched me fall apart You know it's not my fault so find your own answers Stop blaming me and please take me home Terrified with every step I take Frightened with your every move I can't go on I've waited all this time and you ignore Deep inside your heart you know I've done it just for you So don't you dare to judge me now Take your fancy arrowhead and please just go You broke the lock... Your arrowhead is pointed towards the sun Up beyond the sky is where you're aiming, what's the rush You broke the lock went out the door and ran As you watched me fall apart so darling stop your Arrowhead is pointed towards the sun Up beyond the sky is where you're aiming, what's the rush You broke the lock went out the door and ran As you watched me fall apart so darling stop Your arrowhead is pointed up, Beyond the sky is where you're aiming, must You break the lock run out the door And watch me fall apart so stop You broke the lock… Went out our door And watched me fall, watched me fall apart You know it's not my fault so find your own answers Stop blaming me and please just go You broke the lock, went out our door And watched me fall, watched me fall apart You know it's not my fault so find your own answers Stop blaming me and please take me

AN ANGEL APPEARED UNTO THE BARREN WOMAN SAYING YOU SHALL CONCEIVE, THE BORN ONE WILL BE FOR GOD I have faced his mighty demands with granted power Yet I'm cursed with so many years of longing From their side, she looked at me, captured my devotion Blinded my heart, deluded my soul Out of eater came food Out of strong came sweetness Wherein thy great strength lieth? I pressed him until his soul was vexed to death He told me all his heart Out of eater came food Out of strong came sweetness We held him, Took his eyes, And bound to The brass locks Destroyer Of our land, We'll mock you As you fall down! I SEDUCED HIM TO SLEEP UPON MY KNEES AND HAD THE SEVEN LOCKS OF HIS HEAD SHAVEN OFF UNTIL HIS MIGHTY STRENGTH WENT FROM HIM Remember me and strengthen me now, Oh god I pray thee That I may avenge my two eyes "Let me die with the Philistines" He bent with all might slaying more than he slew in his life Out of eater came food Out of strong came sweetness We held him, Took his eyes, And bound to The brass locks Destroyer Of our land, We'll mock you As you fall down!

INNOCENT AND GENIUS, PRETTY AS AN ANGEL DOMINANT AND MIGHTY, QUEEN OF INSANITY YOUR LIES ARE TURNING INTO YOUR OWN ESSENCE, YOUR TRUTH LOCKED INSIDE YOUR PSYCHOTIC MIND SCREAMING YOUR EMPTY HEART OUT SWEETNESS OF A LOST PAST SEARCHING IN THE DARKNESS SCRATCHING THOSE WHO DARE GET CLOSE TO YOU THEY SAY THEY’RE TRYING TO LOVE BUT THEY ONLY SPILL DIRT IN YOUR PATH AND YOU TRY TO PASS, FINDING A WAY OUT TO FLY AND ESCAPE Run away Take all your demons with you as you leave Leave me to rest in the quiet, and leave me to breathe Go and leave me with peace As you run away Day after day POISONED BY YOUR OWN ANGER You ignore BELIEVING THAT THEY ALL HATE YOU, THEY DON'T GET YOU When they come close TRAPPED IN A FORTIFIED DELUSION You take your crown and run away Take all your demons with you as you leave... The sweetness of your past is now a longing melody Crying deep inside, Begging for you to sing A pure voice of an angel innocent yet mighty Hidden right beneath YOUR CROWN OF INSANITY DEEP INSIDE YOUR BROKEN HEART YOU KNOW THE MELODY SCREAMING OUT YOUR NAME, BEGGING FOR YOU TO GROW WHEN YOU WILL SING IT, YOUR HALO WILL SHOW AND YOUR MAJESTY, CAN'T YOU SEE YOUR SOUL WILL SHINE AND FLY, HOW CAN YOU DARE RUN AWAY Take all your demons with you as you leave...

Blades 04:24
Dusty nights are scattering through my fingers Trembling in a tortured, hopeless fight You look away again with curbed anger Not knowing you're hurting by holding them too tight Fragile, small, you are Your charming ignorance is drowned in grown-up memories Yet again you look so far Let me inside your childish world of games and scars Hold on to me upon this cracking ground But don’t come near for I will topple you down Feel my heartbeats piercing passionately Don’t touch me, I’m made of blades A broken future lies within your tears Drop the hopeful act, there's poison inside me Live your life's sweetest years Just want to spend them with you Is this our destiny OR STOPPABLE SUFFERING Can we add a chapter of joy to our story? Hold on to me upon this cracking ground But don’t come near for I will topple you down Feel my heartbeats piercing passionately Don’t touch me, I’m made of blades Roses have their thorns And dreams are make-­believe Yet you smile with screams Let me inside your peaceful future of blades and scars Hold on to me upon this cracking ground But don’t come near for I will topple you down Feel my heartbeats piercing passionately Don’t touch me, I’m made of blades

Gift Divine 06:26
You're sitting on the shore, Listening to the waves The magic of the world flowing in your veins This is how it feels, This is how it sounds entirety of time and space speaks through the here and now Let the breeze bring you ease, yes, I've come to save you See the sea sets you free, spirits sing tonight Serenity I bestow upon you Take this gift, divine, see the sign The sunrise over the desert finds your wretched, broken soul Victim of existence, robbed by misfortune, longing to hear my call The earth will give you power, the wind will cure your wounds, my dear Your might shall stand much stronger, all will hear you loud and clear Let the sun mend you, son, yes, I've come to save you Feel the warmth flowing in your arms today Strength I bestow upon you Take this gift, divine, see the sign The sky enter the twilight zone and so is your tired old being sitting by the ashes of your fire long gone, I know what you are seeking The end is near, don't worry, son, I'll take you with me soon That will be the time for you to sail on to the moon Let death feel your breath, yes, I've come to save you Come with me, now, come with me, eternity awaits Peace I bestow upon you Take this gift divine, see, the sun has set, the moon will shine, now you're the one to give the sign
