Where Dreams Are Forgotten tracks

Lyrics


1. FEAR

Night will come and swallow the sun
In the dark the feast has begun
We deny the creatures are real
Show them your fear and you have to kneel

Time after time
Night after night

As years go by we're always one step behind
We'll never find the missing pieces to our dreams
Beyond the grave there is no promise of peace
Behold a life free from pain and misery

Moving fast across the floor
Shadows appear on your bedroom door
Scraping sounds from inside the wall
Terror strikes will you answer the call

Time after time
Night after night

As years go by we're always one step behind
We'll never find the missing pieces to our dreams
Beyond the grave there is no promise of peace
Behold a life free from pain and misery

Time after time
Night after night

As years go by we're always one step behind
We'll never find the missing pieces to our dreams
Beyond the grave there is no promise of peace
Behold a life free from pain and misery




2. INSIDE THE MAZE

I saw her one day long ago, in the mist of the morning
Her eyes were glowing full of life, a kiss was all she asked for

Now I'm bound to obey her
Trapped forever in this maze I'm held
I can hear her whisper in my mind
But I never understand a word she says...

Take me away I'm longing for life
I'm crying out from my tortured soul
I can't believe this has happened to me
Trying to escape this endless void

It seems like a lifetime I spent, just wanting to leave this place
I'm trying so hard to find the strength, afraid I can never leave her

Now I'm bound to obey her
Trapped forever in this maze I'm held
I can hear her whisper in my mind
But I never understand a word she says...

Take me away I'm longing for life
I'm crying out from my tortured soul
I can't believe this has happened to me
Trying to escape this endless void

So many nights I watched her die
I've seen the horror in her eyes
Too many nights I screamed in vain
But it just goes on and on and on again

I saw her that long ago, in the mist of the morning
Her eyes were glowing full of fire, a kiss was all she asked for

Now I'm bound to obey her...




3. MY SACRIFICE

Everyday I been living this lie
I let my life just fade away
Some days I even think about ending it all

For reasons unknown to me
I never seem to find my peace
Conspiring, delusional thoughts stranded in me

Another day, another way, another life
Another chance to realize my sacrifice

Once again I've been forced to find
The strength to carry on
But in time it only seems to be bringing me down

Through fire I walk the line
Between joy and misery
Cold desire a strange longing for death

Another day, another way, another life
Another chance to realize my sacrifice




4. CURSE OF THE TYRANT

In a land of sand ruled an old and evil king
Cursed with endless wrath he was doomed to rule the night
In the dark he lived surrounded by scum and thieves
A saviour for those who fear the light

Every hour, every breath
One step closer to death
Eyes wide open, cry for help
Begging for mercy
Soon she will burn!

As the legend says there's only one way to escape the curse
He needs to find and kill a woman with an unborn child
All across the land he searched for that special one
And when he found her the ritual begun

Every hour, every breath
One step closer to death
Eyes wide open, cry for help
Begging for mercy
She will burn...

I am not the one you need
She screamed as the flames rose higher
Nothing in this world can save her now
The curse will live on forevermore

Every hour, every breath
One step closer to death
Eyes wide open, cry for help
Begging for mercy
She will burn!

I am not the one you need
She screamed as the flames rose higher
Nothing in this world can save her now
The curse will live on forever




5. THE RETURN

For years I've been walking here all alone
Wondering where you are
Eyes wide open searching everywhere
Not a sign, nor some evidence

When the lights go out
I am left all alone with the moon in the sky
When the cold gets a grip of the night
I return back home

Will you ever find the way?
Will you come here to stay?
Do you think that I'll ever be found?
Would you ever bleed for me?
Do you remember me?
Maybe I'm just a shadow that's left behind

Alone I've been walking around in the dark
It seems like an eternity
Wishing you were still here by my side
Together forever

When the lights go out
I am left all alone with the moon in the sky
When the cold gets a grip of the night
I return back home

Will you ever find the way?
Will you come here to stay?
Do you think that I'll ever be found?
Would you ever bleed for me?
Do you remember me?
Maybe I'm just a shadow that's left...

When the lights go out
I am left all alone with the moon in the sky
When the cold gets a grip of the night
I return back home

Will you ever find the way?
Will you come here to stay?
Do you think that I'll ever be found?
Would you ever bleed for me?
Do you remember me?
Maybe I'm just a shadow that's left...
Shadow that's left behind




6. DEMISE

I rule the day, I rule the night
I will decide if you live or die
I'm not another ordinary man

I hold the powers in my hand
My reign is all across the land
I do not fear any mortal man

Through the wasted endless nights
Through a lifetime of sorrow
When the final curtain falls
I'll be there to watch your demise

I was born inside your mind
Certainly one of a kind
Made up to serve as the other one

There's no boundaries to hold me back
I'm constantly on the attack
I fear there's nowhere left for me to run

Through the wasted endless nights
Through a lifetime of sorrow
When the final curtain falls
I'll be there to watch your demise

I woke up from a dream
I thought I'd died and been reborn
But then my senses became clear
And I realized that nothing had changed
Nothing at all, I'm still here in this human form
With no place left for me to call home

Through the wasted endless nights
Through a lifetime of sorrow
When the final curtain falls
I'll be there to watch your demise




7. ANNIHILATION

The sirens break the silence, in the dead of night
The bombs filling the air, raining down everywhere
Run fast to the shelters, the only way to survive
Peace is no more, the war is at the door

We - Stand our ground
We - Won't back down

To hell and back we fight our way
Through the war, through the pain until no one will remain
To hell and back we find our way
No remorse no regrets we stay strong and fight 'til death

Strike back hard and fast, do the best you can
For every man that falls another one heed the call
Gathering strength from memories the past is the key
For us to unite to stand up and fight

We - Stand our ground
We - Won't back down

To hell and back we fight our way
Through the war, through the pain until no one will remain
To hell and back we find our way
No remorse no regrets we stay strong and fight 'til death

The guilt that's on our hands can't be washed away
Not tomorrow nor today the sins of yesterday

To hell and back...

The forces that will guide us soon lead us astray
What will we gain, pleasure or pain
We never ever fall, we never forget
The time has come to choose will you win or will you lose

We...




8. GREED

Been sleeping far too long
I haven't seen the changing horizon
But now the time has come
To defend my home my nation

Awakened by the sound
Of a thousand soldiers marching
The footsteps pounding the ground
In the land that once was mine

The silent winds of change
Are sweeping across my land
Creeping up from behind
And destroying from within

Infectious like a disease
The new order has no meaning
No reason to believe
That they have come in peace

For the ones we've lost were still counting the cost
And suffer in this living nightmare
To save yourself never count on someone else
You hold the key to your own destiny

With the blood of my own brothers on my hands
I will fight 'til the last enemy fall
Over and over, again and again
Until the day when victory is won!

For the ones we've lost we're still counting the cost
And suffer in this living nightmare
To save yourself never count on someone else
You hold the key to your own destiny




9. THE REAPER

From the first breath when a man is born
He's destined to follow the path from before
The only truth that applies to all life
Without exceptions no one survives

Life as you know it will then fade away
Leading you fast to a final decay
Harsh and relentless the years pass you by
Like seasons are changing you wither and die

Somewhere far away you hear him coming
And you know your time is up
When death comes knocking on your door

All through life's phases you struggle to find
A purpose, a meaning it all seems entwined
Forever leaving the loved ones behind
A faded memory still in your mind

Somewhere far away you hear him coming
And you know your time is up
When the reaper is calling
Somewhere far away you hear him coming
And you know your time is up
When death comes knocking on your door




10. THIS FALSE IMAGERY

Remember the times when you were young
And you thought you'd live forever
But the times have changed
And death will catch you in the end

At night when you're lying in your bed
He'll be right there beside you
In silence, patiently waiting to steal away your soul

The clock is close to midnight
Beware he's coming to get you
Was this all that I got?
Is this the end?

Run fur your life you better save yourself
If tomorrow never comes then live for today
We all need to find the reason to our lives
Before we close our eyes forever

You try to turn your back on the past
The memories will always find you
The scars are forever hidden so deep down inside

But know that you never can break free
For this is what you been chosen for
To lead us through pain
And struggle to reach the other shore

The clock is close to midnight
Beware he's coming to get you
Was this all that I got?
Is this the end?

Run for your life you better save yourself
If tomorrow never comes then live for today
We all need to find the reason to our lives
Before we close our eyes forever




11. SWEET FAREWELL

Has this all been done before
Walking down this cold and lonesome road
Where dreams are forgotten

So I walk further down the line
Reach the point W here there's no turning back
Can't hold on any longer

The life you strive to live
Is just an empty illusion
Forever a blatant lie
Cause we're all gonna die

Time has come for me to carry on
One step forward into the unknown
It's a bittersweet farewell

Alone in bed gasping for air
Forced to relive the past
Every second of my life

Flashing memories right before my eyes
I pray for the end to come soon
Silently it covers me

The life you strive to live
Is just an empty illusion
Forever a blatant lie
Cause we're all gonna die

Time has come for me to carry on
One step forward into the unknown
It's a bittersweet farewell
