1. LET US BURN

Now darkness has come to the roses
The fire is reaching the end
The colours that I have created
Are suddenly flying away

I'm not fighting myself, will not follow
'Cause my choices are mine, it's my fate
And I'll never bow down from the sorrow
I'll face all that is coming my way

Denying the Devil of silence
Embracing the world on the edge

Let us burn
Let us burn
And light up the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

I'm searching no more for tomorrow
I reach for the skies while I can
The unknown will always be waiting
My last day, I'll jump in its hands

I'm not fighting myself, will not follow
'Cause my choices are mine, it's my fate
And I'll never bow down from the sorrow
I'll face all that is coming my way

Denying the Devil of silence
Embracing the world on the edge

Let us burn
Let us burn
And light up the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

Why ?
Why don't you let me burn ?
Why don't you count down and break out and let us burn ?
Oh why ?
Why don't you let me burn ?
Why don't you let me burn ?
Why don't you let me burn ?

Oh why
You raising the demons in my mind ?
Oh why am I
Waiting for chains throwing me to the ground ?

Now darkness has come to the roses
The fire is reaching the end...

Let us burn
Let us burn
And light up the skies here tonight
Let us burn
(Let us burn)
Let us burn
(Let us burn)
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn




2. DANGEROUS (FT. HOWARD JONES)

I know I won't change, I have tried
Was feeling so caged, hands tied
I can't find anything feeling so right
It's blinding hope

The reaper is close, Seen his smile
A matter of time, can't deny
I won't turn around, around, around
This destiny's mine

The countdown has begun
The walls are falling down
My life is on the line
The freedom is mine

It's dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It's dangerous, it's what you like
It's what you'll die for to live this life
We're going on and we'll never stop
We're going on 'til the worlds collide
It's dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

I know it's not safe, close my eyes
I search for the edge of life
'Cause that's the only place I'll ever find
That makes me whole

A thief in the night, out of sight
It's out there waiting to ignite
The fever will rise, rise, rise
Taking over my mind

The countdown has begun
(The countdown has begun)
The walls are falling down
(The walls are falling down)
My life is on the line
(My life is on the line)
The freedom is mine

It's dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It's dangerous, it's what you like
It's what you'll die for to live this life
We're going on and we'll never stop
We're going on 'til the worlds collide
It's dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

Nothing matters anyhow
It's like I'm floating off the ground
Into the hands of air I dive
Rays of light flashing by
Like the time is slowing down
When the world is out of sight
All the memories in my mind
Won't leave me behind

It's dangerous
Dangerous
It's dangerous
Dangerous
It's dangerous

It's dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It's dangerous, it's what you like
It's what you'll die for to live this life
We're going on and we'll never stop
We're going on 'til the worlds collide
It's dangerous
(Dangerous)
So dangerous
(Dangerous)
Dangerous




3. AND WE RUN (FT. XZIBIT)

It burns into your heart
The darkness that you fear
You were never free
And you never realized

And love is a word you've never heard
Your heart ain't cold 'cause it burns
A desire to leave the mire

Take your breath 'til nothing's left
Scars of life upon your chest
And I know wherever it goes

And we run
With a lonely heart
And we run
For this killing love
And we run
'Till the heavens above
Yeah, we run
Running in the dark
And we run
'Till we fall apart
And we run
'Till the heavens above

Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
We gotta get gone
Yeah, we outta here
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
Too late, we gone
Yeah, we outta here

And we run
With a lonely heart
And we run
For this killing love
And we long for a heavenly heart

I'm break these chains, ran through the rain
Never look back, never quit work through the pain
This blood in my veins run cold
When I think it'll never be the same
But I never lose hope
This is my time now
No time for tears, to celebrate
Put it in the air right now
Never back down
You can never wear my crown
'Cause it weighs too much
And I crush every motherfucking thing I touch

This is love, I've never loved so much
Get involved make the world stand up
Give my life before I ever give up
Name in lights, you lost all my trust
Now it's time to face all of us
Get in line 'cause they're callin' us
And it feels so marvelous
Just take my hand and run

And we run
With a lonely heart
And we run
For this killing love
And we run
'Till the heavens above
Yeah, we run
Running in the dark
And we run
'Till we fall apart
And we run
'Till the heavens above

Yeah, we outta here

Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
We gotta get gone
Yeah, we outta here
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
Too late, we gone
Yeah, we outta here

And we run
With a lonely heart
And we run
For this killing love
And we long for a heavenly heart

Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
We gotta get gone
Yeah, we outta here
Don't blink, you'll miss it
Lift up your head
Too late, we gone
Yeah, we outta here




4. PARADISE (WHAT ABOUT US ?) (FT. TARJA TURUNEN)

There’s no sense, the fire burns
When wisdom fails, it changes all
The wheel embodies all that keeps on turning

Blood red skies, I feel so cold
No innocence, we play our role
The wheel embodies all where are we going

All in all, you’d expect the wise to be wiser
Fallen from grace
All and all, I guess we should have known better
’Cause...

What about us ?
Isn’t it enough ?
No, we’re not in Paradise
This is who we are
This is what we've got
No, it's not our Paradise
But it’s all we want
And it's all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not Paradise

You and us or I and them
There comes a time to take a stand
The wheel is watching all that keeps on burning

The venom works, it’s like a curse
A Trojan horse, when will we learn ?
The wheel embodies all that keeps returning

All in all, you’d expect the wise to be wiser
Fallen from grace
All and all, I guess we should have known better
’Cause...

What about us ?
Isn’t it enough ?
No, we’re not in Paradise
This is who we are
This is what we've got
No, it's not our Paradise
But it’s all we want
And it's all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not Paradise

What about us ?
Isn’t it enough ?
No, we’re not in Paradise
This is who we are
This is what we've got
No, it's not our Paradise
But it’s all we want
And it's all that we’re fighting for

What about us ?
Isn’t it enough ?
No, we’re not in Paradise
This is who we are
This is what we've got
No, it's not our Paradise
But it’s all we want
And it's all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not Paradise

What about us ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
Isn't it enough ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
Isn't it enough ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
Isn't it enough ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
What about us ?
Isn't it enough ?




5. EDGE OF THE WORLD

Cannot swallow the soil
Make it all beautiful
Cannot carry you, carry you, carry you now
The truth can't bear the sunlight
You're afraid for the day it does

And when I told you so
I got burned, burned, burned again
Heaven forbid that my heart is for sale
Hope in the end, truth prevails

I'm gonna run to the edge of the world
Run to the edge of the world
Feel that I'm gonna get home if I try
I'm gonna run to the edge of the world
Run to the edge of the world
Need to find my way home
Home

You're as proud as a God
But I believed in your heart
And I'll be leaving you, leaving you, leaving you now
The truth can't bear the sunlight
And don't pretend to be my guide

You said you'd change it all
But I got burned, burned, burned instead
Heaven can wait 'cause my soul ain't for sale
Hope in the end, truth prevails

I'm gonna run to the edge of the world
Run to the edge of the world
Feel that I'm gonna get home if I try
I'm gonna run to the edge of the world
Run to the edge of the world
Need to find my way home
Home

Home

I'm gonna run to the edge of the world
Run to the edge of the world
Feel that I'm gonna get home if I try
I'm gonna run to the edge of the world
Run to the edge of the world
Need to find my way home
Home

Justify
No more lies
Once upon a time




6. SILVER MOONLIGHT

Turn around, open your eyes
Can't move on, the fear is tying you down
Open your eyes
It's alright...

I'm hell bound in this life
Keep fighting this endless war
It's always been like this, I don't know why
Enslavement of your mind
Your fear, it ties me down
Going down, I won't bow...
No

Screaming at the walls of fire
They're closing in on me
(They're closing in on me)
I'm hungry for the burning of the silver moonlight
It's where I wanna be
(Where I wanna be)
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free
(But I'm still running free)
In the silver moonlight I can breathe

(I can breathe)

These days are lonely now
Breathing in the coldest lies
I think that's only what you have in mind
Holding on to the best of you
I hit the pavement
Going down, I won't bow...
Don't

Screaming at the walls of fire
They're closing in on me
(They're closing in on me)
I'm hungry for the burning of the silver moonlight
It's where I wanna be
(Where I wanna be)
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free
(But I'm still running free)
In the silver moonlight I can breathe

I've been patient
But it's colors that I need
Too many shades of gray
I cannot breath
(I can't breathe)
The dreams I haven't tainted
Need you to believe
The only way to make them real

(I can breathe)

Screaming at the walls of fire
They're closing in on me
(They're closing in on me)
I'm hungry for the burning of the silver moonlight
It's where I wanna be
(Where I wanna be)
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free
(But I'm still running free)
In the silver moonlight I can breathe

(I can breathe)

Turn around, open your eyes
Can't move on, the fear is tying you down
Open your eyes
It's alright...




7. COVERED BY ROSES

I feel my heart explode to particles
Love is always here and I told you so
Restless in dreams, love carved in stone
This rhapsody of life in a way
I guess, we all know it

Hand in hand, we stand while we watch it flow
Heaven can you help us, no, we can't go

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die
The choirs have awoken
Left no words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can
Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time
Need to live every moment

We built our castles high, turned our dreams to gold
We took the blows with pride, went through it all
The dawn is closing in, new tales are told
This rhapsody of life in a way
I guess, we all know

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die
The choirs have awoken
Left no words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can
Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time
Need to live every moment

For all we are is falling stars in the night
A blinding light raging down from the sky
The rise and fall, the rhapsody of our lives
It's all we know, we've got to let go

"She dwells with beauty, beauty that must die
And joy, whose hand is ever at his lips
His soul shall taste the sadness of her might
And be among her cloudy trophies hung"

Covered by...
Covered by...

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die
The choirs have awoken
Left no words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can
Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time
Need to live every moment




8. DOG DAYS

Wake up in the dead of night
Dogs are turning wild
Run into what's wrong each time
Fail to get it right

Fighting off this heavy heart
Keeping your head high
Oh won't you, please, forget ?
Oh won't you, please, forget ?

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Leading our hearts astray
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Soon they will fade away
One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?
One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

Awakened by the dreams at night
Chills run down your spine
The brightest star in summer skies
Brings madness to our minds

Fighting off the darkest thoughts
Fighting to survive
Oh won't you, please, forget ?
Oh won't you, please, forget ?

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Leading our hearts astray
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Soon they will fade away
One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?
One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

These are the dog days

Embracing the highs to fight the lows
Running down the path that I
Think I need to go
When you think you've won, you're still
Losing after all
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

(One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?)

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Leading our hearts astray
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
Soon they will fade away
One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?
One, two, three, four
What are you waiting for ?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

(These are the dog days)

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
These are the dog days




9. TELL ME WHY

I've been losing myself in anger
So much broken by the rage
Nothing could take my mind off
How to make them pay ?

Killing myself for nothing
And the pain won't go away
Losing myself to madness
And the game's been played

If I could turn
The hands of time
I would but here I am

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still trying to hold on
I’ve got to tear it down to let it go

I’m too tired to keep on trying
But I’m spellbound ‘til the end
Knowing that there’s no closure
For my wars inside

I’ve buried the good and evil
Only memories left behind
I am the one still standing
I will live to tell

If I could turn
The hands of time
I would but here I am

Here I am

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still trying to hold on
I’ve got to tear it down to let it go

Tell me why I’m wasting away
(Wasting away)
Tell me how to break my own chains
(Break my own chains)
‘Cause I’m losing after all
How can I escape this grim fate ?
(Escape this grim fate)
Tell me how to face one more day
(Face one more day)
‘Cause I’m wasting away

It’s all gone silent
I'm searching for fire
Nothing to fight for alone

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
Why I’m living with the ghost of yesterday ?
Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
(When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone
When it’s all gone)
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
(Yesterday's ghost
Yesterday's ghost
Yesterday's ghost)
Tell me why am I still trying to hold on
I’ve got to tear it down to let it go




10. WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING (FT. DAVE PIRNER)

You live your life, you go day by day
Like nothing can go wrong
The scars are made, they're changing the game
You learn to play it hard

And I know you wish for more
And I know you try
And now you realize
You know the time is right

The whole world is watching when you rise
The whole world is beating for you right now
Your whole life is flashing 'fore your eyes
It's all in this moment that changes all
What are you waiting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
'Cause time's always slipping away
The whole world is watching
The whole world is watching you when you rise

You build your walls then break them away
'Cause that is what it takes
You saved yourself, you found who you are
That never goes away

And I know you wish for more
And I know you try
And now you realize
You know the time is right

The whole world is watching when you rise
The whole world is beating for you right now
Your whole life is flashing 'fore your eyes
It's all in this moment that changes all
What are you waiting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
'Cause time's always slipping away
The whole world is watching
Yeah, the whole world is watching you when you rise

Your sacrifice comes through your mind
But nothing is wasted, you made it now
You rise again, breaking out
Each step you've taken, you've paid the price

The whole world is watching

The whole world is watching
The whole world is watching you when you rise
What are you waiting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
'Cause time's always slipping away
The whole world is watching
Yeah, the whole world is watching you when you rise
