1. NO WAY OUT

Thought I knew it would be hard to get through
How to know it hurts so miserably
You did not deserve the trust put in you
Even my dreams may fade to obscurity
If I could forget the things said and done
Yes I'd like to find the faith without doubt
Can't you see except you I have no one,
So even leaving you, that's not way out!
That's no way out!
That's no way out!
That's no way out!

Neither with you nor existence alone
Sadness lead me to confusion unknown
Am I blessed or am I at least just proud,
And leaving you, that's no way out!
That's no way out, no, no, no!
That's no way out!
That's no way out!

I am attempting to convince myself of liberty,
That even lovers do require certain space to feel free
But in the end I realise that we both can not change
I truly need you, there's no way out!

How should I sleep, how should I breathe, how should I face the truth
How should I choose without regrets, tell me,
That's no way out!
That's no way out!
That's no way out!
That's no way out!

I am attempting to convince myself of liberty,
That even lovers do require certain space to feel free
But in the end I realise that we both can not change
I truly need you, there's no way out!

That's no way out!
That's no way out!
That's no way out, that's no way!
That's no way!
That's no way out, yeah!
That's no way!
That's no way!
That's no way out, yeah!
That's no way!
That's no way!
That's no way out, yeah!

How should I sleep, how should I breathe, how should I face the truth
How should I choose without regrets, tell me, what should I do




2. ESSENCE OF LIFE

Hey, did I ever tell
About the cute tick called Pete,
He lived his life quite well,
Though he was a complete freak
You should believe me,
He's the kind of tick you wanna meet
Led a lone life in peace,
Oh yeah he was quite tough... tick Pete
Oh sweet little Pete, that's your life...

Little Pete once was in a nasty mood and so he asked himself:
'What's the reason that I don't feel good?'
He had a feeling that was rather strange
And so Pete knew that all he needs was just a blood group change
Once someone told him of a place somewhere,
So he left home although he knew that it would be hard to get there
You see his planning was quite terrific,
That's why I told you our Pete was such a cool, tough tick

Walking away...
Walking away my friend...
Walking away...
Walking away my friend...
Walking away...

Life,
What does it mean to you?
However you get through,
Each has another real essence of life,
Who can make sense of it?
Some may think life's just shit
Some think that blood is the essence of life!

Travelling from host to host,
Always alone no matter the time it costs,
So far from home

When he got there,
It was like paradise, a new sensation,
You should have seen his eyes
And Pete was quite pleased,
Blood in variety, so he did not even see the impending tragedy

How should he know,
Just a stranger after all, but blood in Soho
May contain alcohol!

Most of his time Pete was in a sort of, let's say, delirium
He lost from time to time his style and equilibrium
You might conclude: in a city, what a pity, but he will lose the day
But drugs create indifference,
So Pete doesn't care, anyway!

They fade away,
The pheromones of bygone days,
What's left to say...
Different priorities!

Drifting away...
Drifting away...
Drifting away...

Life,
What does it mean to you?
However you get through,
Each has another real essence of life,
Who can make sense of it?
Some may think life's just shit
Some think that blood is the essence of life!
Essence of life!
Essence of life!
Essence of life!

Life,
What does it mean to you?
However you get through,
Each has another real essence of life,
Who can make sense of it?
Some may think life's just shit
Some think that blood is the essence of life!




3. OVERTURE

No-one ever dared believe
A deed that lay beyond their needs,
Although one could yet feel,
Although it was so near...
And no-one knew the consequence
Who should have known?
Who should have known?

The mess of regularity
It forced her unpredictably
Although she could yet feel
Departure was so near
Announcement never vocalised
Who should have known?
Who should have known?




4. ABOUT TO LEAVE

About to leave...
Cling to intimacy you used to feel
No-one ever blames you for your fears
It's nothing but your destiny
And though it's contradictory, you just leave
Leave...
Don't turn from separation desperately
Outgrow the sadness you can not conceal
A journey to an unknown land
A journey that might change it all
No matter who decides and so you leave!

You'll fill the gap between these worlds, you'll grab for destiny
You will pronounce unspoken words, a strange conspiracy
Open your eyes!

Oh yes, you will create chaotic rules, you'll change normality
You came from sun and air and moon, fulfill your prophecy
Open your eyes!




5. YOUR SOURCE

Do you recall all the tears that she dried,
Every soothing care, she is your source
Your source, your source
Do you recall how she opened your mind,
Brightened up your life, she is your source
Your source, your source
Though far away you miss her
Never regret, never regret,
Never regret, never regret, never regret, never regret

Do you recall how the distance was clear
Friendship of your day, she is your source
Your source, your source
Do you recall something waiting out there,
So you went away, she is your source
Your source, your source
Your memories will burn forever,
Never forget, never forget,
Never forget, never forget, never forget, never forget

Darkness all around you,
Prophecy decided,
Darkness all around you,
Though once there was light,
Darkness all around you,
Destiny's first child...
Never regret, never regret, never forget, never forget,
Never regret, never regret, never forget, never forget,
Never regret

Do you recall fading sunsets of gold,
Still you smell your home, this is your source
Your source, your source
Do you recall how she gave you support,
Yes you know she'll stay always your source,
Your source, your source




6. TREMENDOUSLY DIFFERENT

[Instrumental]




7. LONG AGO

So long ago since boisterous lands arose...
Long ago since oceans cast their spray to welcome him
Shall it yet be all?

Did he come this far just to deliver us from evil?
Or did he underestimate the challenge to be here?




8. ALL OF IT

He fills up all, he's the background and the frame
Both land and water, here, so far from where he came
And with the roots of wild rage he sympathises
But deep inside neither back nor even white

Possesses all, even liberty and faith
He's a storm, he's a blizzard and his trace
He's a child, with intention to grow up
But doesn't know what's missing

And all of it's nothing,
All of it tears him down
All of it's still not enough, there's something's missing
All of it's nothing,
All of it tears him down
All of it's still not enough, there's something's missing

He's like a man, he's so strong but incomplete
A winter tree, a huge trunk but lack of leaves
With all his force he will surely carry on
But doesn't know what's missing

And all of it's nothing,
All of it tears him down
All of it's still not enough, there's something's missing
All of it's nothing,
All of it tears him down
All of it's still not enough, there's something's missing

For the first time silence around
It's a sign of more
Did he hear strange, but promising sounds?
It's a sign of more
Should he wait and begin something new?
Is it time for more?
No he can't wait, cause he might lose it all!
He doesn't want to lose it all
He doesn't want to lose it all
He doesn't want to lose it all
He doesn't want to lose it all

And all of it's nothing,
All of it tears him down
All of it's still not enough, there's something's missing
All of it's nothing,
All of it tears him down
All of it's still not enough, there's something's missing




9. PRESENTIMENTS

And they whisper soft, it's a breath of air and a sigh for future times
See the distant glint, almost powerful with a wave of cryptic signs
Now vibrating winds sprout so constantly, can you hear these sounds of joy?
Even oceans sing and their melodies prophecy the change of all that they knew before

The sky will shine...
The storm will spin...
Seas rage as once
They welcomed him
The lands might shake,
But time stands still,
Forgotten realms that you fulfill
The sky will shine...
The storm will spin...
Seas rage as once
They welcomed him
The lands might shake,
But time stands still,
Forgotten realms that you fulfill
That you fulfill
That you fulfill

Glimpse of moments,
Not yet concrete but clear,
Did you feel the breathe,
Drops will become a stream
Just one instant, far away but still near,
Did she speak to you: this is your dream
Glimpse of moments,
Not yet concrete but clear,
Did you feel the breathe,
Drops will become a stream




10. WOULD YOU FELL BETTER

Just a stranger of obscurity but you've finally arrived
Tell me, is it strength or is it weakness if one pushes you aside
But you found a place to stay apart from where he made his rules
While you wonder about your task, the prophecy might yet come true

You can feel that he is present but you never say his sight
Elemental discrepancy, he's made of earth and you of light
In his tight conservatism he is sure you'll never fit
Though rejecting your whole vision you embody all he missed

Would you feel better now, if things never changed?
Would it be better if just all stayed the same?
Would you feel better now, to leave and give in?
Or does it feel good somehow, to differ from him?

You feel a rush,
He's turning round and round
You changed too much,
This is his place that he first found
A huge repulsive force creates an atmosphere of turbulence and pain
Not yet so dangerous but who can judge if competition drives insane...

Did you come in vain?

Would you feel better now, if things never changed?
Would it be better if just all stayed the same?
Would you feel better now, to leave and give in?
Or does it feel good somehow, to differ from him?
Would you feel better now?
Would you feel better now?
Tell me would you feel better now?
Would you feel better now?

He's waiting in the shadow,
Watching you alone,
How should he approach you,
He should know
Sees your bright eyes shining
Pale and rather grey
Though not understanding.
He should know
He's waiting in the shadow,
Watching you alone,
How should he approach you,
He should know
Sees your bright eyes shining
Pale and rather grey
Though not understanding,
He should know, he should know

No-one could predict the time
Though future is so well defined
Now elements are close,
From difference they arose
But what could future signify?
We should know soon, we should know soon




11. IN VAIN

You smile, you charm, you hold his sense
Bewilder everything
So hard to see, you can hardly keep back your tears
So innocent, you enchant the world,
But you don't care at all,
Seek something else
You're blinding,
You're hiding...

If you held out your hand, would it be such a dangerous deed?
Would you lose your dream?
If you held out your hand, you could hope that your prince's waiting near...
Should he wait in vain?

You give, you play a twinkling star,
But never close enough
And when you shine you hide how fragile you are
So differently, repulsive force
That's why you hesitate
But somehow more
You're blinding,
You're hiding...

If you held out your hand, would it be such a dangerous deed?
Would you lose your dream?
If you held out your hand, you could hope that your prince's waiting near...
Should he wait in vain?

It's silent all around,
A shattered trace...
The dim glow hesitates to light your face
Your ego smeared all that remains this night
A shadow on your face,
Should all this fade in emptiness?
Oh no! Oh no!
Love should not be wasted in vain

If you held out your hand, would it be such a dangerous deed?
Would you lose your dream?
If you held out your hand, you could hope that your prince's waiting near...
Should he wait in vain?




12. ENCOUNTERS

One decision,
One encounter of fate, on a threshold of dreams...
This is your, this is your, this is your, this is your dream

Strange reunion whether future or past
Yet a million times
Changed the flow of life, new life, new life
Other journeys,
Other lands will arise,
Start it once again, creating a new life!
New life, new life!

Don't be sorry,
Little girl don't be sad...
Though you lost this force,
Forever rest our source

No-one ever dares believe,
A deed that lies beyond their needs
Although one can yet feel...
