DISC 1

1. ANTEROOM OF DEATH

Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the Joker, King or Queen?
Place your cards as they're coming
Came to win, lost everything
Gambling rider pull the strings
Pull them tighter, let them in

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who's got the keys and who has not?
Sell your fortune to me cause'
I can still read behind all that
Burn your fingers, trade a dream
Watch the clock as it's ticking

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Blinded in the dark
I'm touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you're searching learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow, finally

Watch the clock 'cause it's ticking and ticking ticking tock
Watch the clock 'cause it's ticking and ticking ticking tock
Are you Joker, King or Queen? To face drama rebellion
Are you Joker, King or Queen? Came to win
Are you Joker, King or Queen? Came to win, lost everything!
Come and play (come and play), another day (another day)
I don't care what you say because your lovely words decay
Come on and play another day, throw your mask away
Come on and play, come on and play, another day, another day
And throw your mask away, I don't care, I don't care, I don't care what you say
Welcome to the anteroom of death!

Gambling riders, pull the strings
Pull them tighter let them in
Burn your fingers, trade a dream
Come on in, come on in, come on in, come on in, come on in, come on in, come on, come on
in, come on in!

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death




2. MY LITTLE PHOENIX

Gracefully she's cireling higher.
She has the wind beneath her wings
and looks down on us
She said:
"Robbed of my innocence, had no more time to play. I sure got my feathers burned, but I'm
stronger than the flames".

Here she comes, here she comes.
I've been waiting for so long.
Here she comes
rose again from the flames
my little Phoenix
Eternity is set in her eyes
throwing sparks back at the world that'll never die.
And I think:
"She was robbed of her innocence, had no moro time to play. She's only a little girl, but
she stronger than the flames"

Here she comes, here she comes.
I've been waiting for so long.
Here she comes
rose again from the flames
my little Phoenix

You've got to get close to the flame to see
what it's made of
You've got to get close to the flame to see what you are made of.

Here she comes, here she comes.
I've been waiting for so long.
Here she comes
rose again from the flames
my little Phoenix




3. DARK STAR

Burning out in the distance you're falling
Starting to fade
Light is condemned to be tied down by gravity close to the end
Do you still remember?
Before the weight that pulled you under
Dared you to rise

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all
You are a dark star

Empty
Is never enough
You keep clawing for what you can't reach
Smothering space filled without any grace and I can't breathe
Nothing lasts forever
Even the stars will loose their luster returning to dust

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all
You are a dark star




4. NAIAD

She hears the distant soft caress
There in the gloom.
Colors surround with tenderness
Guiding her through.

In the forgotten sweet abyss
Another sound
Twilight floating memories
Always without.

Gloaming
There above the surface
An illusion
Reaching down for me.

What lies beneath
Beyond the ocean s door
Tranquil is the kiss
Of the azure rising deep
Sleeping ever more
Naiad s mystery
What lies beneath.

Guarding their immorality
Saints in the sand.
Stranger than beautiful eerie
An ancient land

Circle of sixteen turned to stone
And still they keep
Shimmering crystal promises
One space between.

Breathing the newborn waves.
Kneeling for the sea she became.




5. FALLING AWAKE

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defence

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake




6. I WALK ALONE

Put all your angels on the edge
Keep all the roses, I'm not dead
I left a thorn under your bed
I'm never gone

Go tell the World I'm still around
I didn't fly, I'm coming down
You are the wind, the only sound
Whisper to my heart
When hope is torn apart
And no one can save you

I walk alone
Every step I take
I walk alone
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone

Go back to sleep forevermore
Far from your fools and lock the door
They're all around and they'll make sure
You don't have to see
What I turned out to be
No one can help you

I walk alone
Every step I take
I walk alone
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone

Waiting up in heaven
I was never far from you
Spinning down I felt your every move

I walk alone
Every step I take
I walk alone
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone




7. LITTLE LIES

Take my faith with an open hand and warm embrace
My confidant
Use my words
Take the good away and leave the worst to sell me out

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is what it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Feed the flames
Empty wishes with no room to blame
My sacrifice
Deep inside
There is nothing left to stand behind
But

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is what it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Little Lies
Little lies
Nothing is what it seems




8. INTO THE SUN

Dream against the flow
Let your garden grow
Over land and water
Feel your borders

Walking right into the sun
No fear of the ending
Find new beginning
Over another lonely star

Walking right into the sun

All my sweetest doors
Let them help you out
My emotion
Parted ocean

Walking right into the sun
Don't feel/fear the ending
Find the beginning
Over another lonely star
Brighter than who you are
Walking right into the sun




9. NEMO (NIGHTWISH COVER)

This is me for forever
One of the lost ones
The one without a name
Without an honest heart as compass

This is me for forever
One without a name
This life's the last endeavour
To find the missing life line

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

My flower withered between the pages two and three
The one scent forever gloom gone with my steams
What the dark that sleep with angels
Call the past for help
Touch me with your love
And reveal to me my true name

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
Oh how I wish to dream again

Once and for all
And all for once
Nemo my name forevermore

Nemo sailing home
Nemo letting go

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
Oh how I wish to dream again

Once and for all
And all for once
Nemo my name forevermore




10. NEVER ENOUGH

Life in bloom, the sweetest season
The warm embrace gave me the meaning
Another time, a cross to carry
Cruel facade imaginary
I don’t belong

There’s no going back
what we used to be
There’s no room for us
no place for me

Never enough, never enough
No, never enough, never enough
I gave it all
You still want more

A child’s game, the search for reason
A coldest day, I stopped believing
Another war, my endless laughter
A storyline is all they’re after
I don’t belong




11. STILL OF THE NIGHT (WHITESNAKE COVER)

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store,
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
And I can't take no more, no, no

Now I just want to get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
And I just want to make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night
In the still of the night
Over here baby

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come

In the still of the night,
In the cool moonlight,
I feel heart is aching
In the still of the night

Tell me here baby

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more.

Now I just want to get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
And I just want to make love to you
Feel your body heat.

In the still of the night

Still of the night,
Still of the night,
Still of the night.




12. IN FOR A KILL

Where do you go from here?
It's dragging you under
Nothing could be more clear
When you are the hunter
Is that a dream to die for?
A prize

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

You and your twisted minds
It's making us shiver
How can we be so blind
The fear you deliver
It's all a grand illusion
A trick

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill




DISC 2

1. BOY AND THE GHOST

The streets are empty.
Inside it's warms.
His hands are shaking.
They locked the door.

A voice is calling.
Asking to get in.

All he wanted was a toy.
All he needed was a gentle heart
To lead him through the dark
When his dreams are running wild

Boy and the ghost
Fire's not burning
The lights went out
The lights went out

Big family dinner
The untold pain
Their eyes are sparkling on his frozen face.
Angel's calling asking to get in

All he wanted was a toy.
All he needed was a gentle heart
To lead him through the dark
When there's nowhere left to fall.

Boy and the ghost
His eyes are burning
The lights went out
The dream is on.

Wake up, wake up:
There's an Angel in the snow.
Look up, look up:
It's a frightened dead boy
With so much hate, such bad dreams.
He could have seen
The toy's the key, but no one saw, no one saw

All he wanted was a toy.
All he needed was a gentle heart
To lead him through the dark
Boy and the ghost

Despero, solitas, debilis, desolo.
Despero, solitas, debilis, desolo.

When there's nowhere left to fall.
Nowhere to hide
The silence is hurting
Inside it's cold. Sleep or die.
Nowhere to go, Nowhere to hide.
His light went out.




2. LOST NORTHERN STAR

I'm the one who leaves shadows in you room at night
I'm the reason you're listening enlightening you eyes
When Pan meets Apollo down with the sin
They will send tears of angels though kindness won't win

Lost northern star
Buried in sorrow
I'll guard your mind
Let demons howl outside

Where the calm fields of snow become one with the sky
I am there; I am waiting as time passes by
I set up the weather to suit how you feel
Drop rain down with wishes, build grace out of steel

Lost northern star
Buried in sorrow
I'll guard your mind
Let demons howl outside

(My soul burns)
(My soul burns)

Sending dream flakes your way
Painting pictures to help you each day
Yet you don't know I'm there

Lost northern star
Buried in sorrow
I'll guard your mind
Let demons howl outside

(My soul burns)




3. CIARÁN'S WELL

Misty cold nights
You'll hear her sigh
And sing bitter
Sweet lullabies

For years she prayed
The saints would cast
A spell for the
Forest to let her go

She sings'
She dreams'
She prays'

She sings'
She plays...
She stays...

Ah Ah
Ah Ah

The black old well
Holds ancient tales
And makes all wishes come true
So throw your dream
Into the dark
And Blue will come for you




4. TIRED OF BEING ALONE

Once, you dreamed of me , twice
You wished that I’d pull you out
You chose your life , and put me down
Still you don't understand

Tired of being alone

What you have dreamed
Is not what I am
So far
Let me be the one
Please understand me
How I am
But I don't want , to walk alone
I need your hands to warm my soul

Tired of being alone
Tired of being alone

I will do my best
To become your love
I'll try
To fill the emptyness
In our hearts
Oh so tired of being alone

Tired of being alone
I want to feel , I need to fall in love with you
Tired of being alone




5. WERE WERE YOU LAST NIGHT / HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH / LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER

Still
Spinning round in my head
How I regret everything that I said
Why did I tell you to go
Saving my pride but losing my soul

I'm here all alone
Still wait by the phone
The hours go by
What else could I do but to cry

I call and I call
Just to make things right
Have I lost the fight
Where were you last night

I beg and I cry
I keep asking why
Where were you last night
Where were you last night

Lost
In the dark and my fears
If only you saw the tracks of my tears
I think I'm losing my mind
Where did you go and what did you find

I'm here all alone
Still wait by the phone
The hours go by
What else could I do but to cry

I call and I call
Just to make things right
Have I lost the fight
Where were you last night

I beg and I cry
I keep asking why
Where were you last night
Where were you last night

I call and I call
Just to make things right
have I lost the fight
Where were you last night

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth.
They say in heaven love comes first.
We'll make heaven a place on earth.
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth.

Livin' on a prayer

I'm here all alone
Still wait by the phone
The hours go by
What else could I do but to cry

I call and I call
Just to make things right
Have I lost the fight
Where were you last night

Whooah, we're half way there
Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Livin on a prayer

Where were you last night
Where were you last night




6. UNDERNEATH

Even in my darkest times
Overcome with worry
Find the comfort in the storm
No reason to be sorry
Look inside for a place to hide
All around the faithless wait full of expectations
They will never see the beauty in the imperfections
The more I show
The less they know

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Every little cut runs deep
Masked in my tomorrow
Bringing wisdom that I need for all the time I borrow
My other side is left behind

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath




7. OASIS / THE ARCHIVE OF LOST DREAMS

Hyvyyden varjo peittää kyyneleen,
löytäneen luo vie askeleen.
Rauha saa, kehto uneen tuudittaa.
Toivo jää, tie rakkauteen.
Tie syvään vaupauteen.

English translation:
The shadow of goodness covers the tear,
Takes the step to the one found.
Peace may, rock the cradle to sleep.
Hope remains, a way to love.
A way to a deep freedom.

Far from the light to reach beneath a veil of mist
Countless stories were left to rest in peace
Darkened and calm
The grave uncared
Once a haven filled with hope
The archive of lost dreams
We send our inner fears for the ocean to score
Waiting it takes them all away from the shore
Deepest beliefs from billions of souls
Longing for our wishes to find a way back home
Aah... Naiad
The last one in the unknown
The keeper of our written dreams
Aah... Promises
None of them were left behind
She blessed them with her kiss
See.
Hear and feel
The miracle of life
Believe the signs and trust you'll stay alive
Descend to find the depth of your heart
Mysterious Naiad
Now the circle's closed forever
Aah... Naiad
The archive is gone
We are on our own




8. CRIMSON DEEP

Sometimes I see the pulse
Numb I feel,
So unreal.
Blood on my lips I taste the heavy lead.
What can I find behind the mirror,
I’ll never know.
Who’s the reflection within?
Should I frame for you the other world?
Another world?
I’ve heard the voices of Elysium.
The scent of a sudden wish,
Never there, everywhere.
Read me the space in-between.
Sharp is the edge of all discovery,
Now I see.
A scar without suffering, impossible.
I’ll wait until my last day
With no shame.
Who’s to blame?
Shaping the signs left for me.
Come to me
I cried
I need you.
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark.
Far beneath my breath
I’m burning
At my core.
Show me how
Let me see beyond
I will find
My Crimson Deep




9. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER COVER)

[Christine:]
In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice which calls to me
And speaks my name
And do I dream again
For now I find
The Phantom of the opera is there
Inside my mind

[Phantom:]
Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you
Grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me
To glance behind
The Phantom of the opera is there
Inside your mind

[Christine:]
Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear

[Phantom:]
It's me they hear

[Together:]
My/your spirit and your/my voice
In one combined
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside your/my mind

He's there the Phantom of the opera
Beware the Phantom of the opera

[Phantom:]
In all your phantasies
You always knew
That man and mystery

[Christine:]
Were both in you

[Together:]
And in this labyrinth
Where night is blind
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside your/my mind

[Phantom:]
Sing my angel of music




10. DIE ALIVE

Open up the night.
Led by just a feeling.
All around is light.
Everything is healing.

No more fate and no more mystery.
Even as time falls away
I live my days
every moment and its memory,
not only to survive to die alive.

Overwhelming love,
heaven's just a feeling.
Singing in my blood
keeping me from kneeling.

No more fate and no more mystery.
Even as time falls away
I live my days
every moment and its memory,
not only to survive to die alive.

Die alive.

No more fate and no more mystery.
Even as time falls away
I live my days every moment and its memory,
not only to survive to die alive.

Die alive.
Die alive.




11. UNTIL MY LAST BREATH

Cannot cry it loud enough
I'm giving up this ghost
How can I still justify
When you deny my voice
In this nothing I am not allowed
I just follow alone
Words as weapons without a sound
Echoes dying unborn

Until my last breath
You'll never know
Until you feel the silence
When I am gone
Now is vanishing
Everything
What we might have been
Only now you praise
Call my name that you won't see again

Who can change this memory
Inside it needs to burn
Worship by the enemy
The guilty take their turns
Watching as it's disappearing
Shadows all that remain
Wishes slowly crossing over
In this parade of pain

Until my last breath
You'll never know
Until you feel the silence
When I am gone
Now is vanishing
Everything
What we might have been
Only now you praise
Call my name that you won't see again




12. OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY (GARY MOORE COVER)

They came for him one winter's night.
Arrested, he was bound.
They said there'd been a robbery,
His pistol had been found.

They marched him to the station house,
He waited for the dawn.
And as they led him to the dock,
He knew that he'd been wronged.
"You stand accused of robbery,"
He heard the bailiff say.
He knew without an alibi,
Tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom.

Over the hills and far away,
For ten long years he'll count the days.
Over the mountains and the seas,
A prisoner's life for him there'll be.

He knew that it would cost him dear,
But yet he dare not say.
Where he had been that fateful night,
A secret it must stay.
He had to fight back tears of rage.
His heart beat like a drum.
For with the wife of his best friend,
He spent his final night of freedom.

Over the hills and far away,
He swears he will return one day.
Far from the mountains and the seas,
Back in her arms again he'll be.
Over the hills and far away.

Over the hills and,
Over the hills and,
Over the hills and far away.

Each night within his prison cell,
He looks out through the bars.
He reads the letters that she wrote.
One day he'll know the taste of freedom.

Over the hills and far away,
She prays he will return one day.
As sure as the rivers reach the seas,
Back in his arms again she'll be.

Over the hills and far away,
He swears he will return one day.
Far from the mountains and the seas,
Back in her arms again he'll be.

Over the hills and far away,
She prays he will return one day.
As sure as the rivers reach the sea,
Back in her arms is where he'll be.

Over the hills,
Over the hills and far away.

Over the hills,
Over the hills and far away.
