Lyrics

1. DISCORD

You need to get out of my sight!
A lonely heart can beat
You're too dangerous
A lonely heart can bleed
I cannot stand it to be enclosed but isolated
A lonely heart can be enclosed but isolated
You're too much
A lonely heart is weak
Too dependant
A broken heart will seek
You take the life out of me, no heart is broken forever
Its broken promises, but my faith is broken forever

Can't you believe that this power we feel can be for real?
Ihe smile that was given light now seems to freeze, but why?

A lonely heart will break
Pressure will make me forsake you
A lonely heart won't forsake me
As if we're both the same, wounded and beaten but still not defeated
A lonely heart can be wounded and beaten but still not defeated
'Cause I won't let you it!
So if it's all for real
Your weakness will be my strength
Your heart should be melting
You might be lonely but I am not beloved and bounded forever
Because we're all the same, beloved and bounded forever

Can't you believe that this power we feel can be for real?
The smile that was given light now seems to freeze, but why?

Won't you believe?
Won't you embrace it?
Can't you believe?
The power between us?

Oh, discord, see them fail, oh!

Won't you believe?
Won't you embrace it?
Can't you believe in the power between us?

Can't you believe that this power we feel can be for real?
The smile that was given light now seems to freeze, but why?




2. EVOKE

So wild, so beautiful and pure
All elements divine
The essence of all life

So vast, extensive and remote
Unbridled and erratic
Savage but glorious

It bursts; its energy is stirring
It calls; its drawing power will enchant us with its might
Its massive spirit's bright
Let it flow!

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
But to feel its true soul, dare to concede and to connect

Emerging waves and brightened skies
The sun that burns in your eyes
The wind that blows and pounds

It shines, its energy is whirling
It fights, will not be interfered with people who can't feel it is all nature's flow!
Let it flow!

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
We should cherish it!

Oh, energy
Oh, evoke me

Let it flow!
Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
It is not at our command, no!




3. TRANSITORY

Life; at its best, you are doing fine
But you're blind, it's china you hold
As it breaks, suddenly it's clear; beautiful but transitory

But we won't break easy, we won't give in to all unbearable pain
We'll pull through, we won't crack, we'll endure and survive

Oh, transitory
Pain is as life itself
Evanescent as it fades

Transitory!

Life; all you've got, all was swept away
Now you see what there is to miss
Suddenly you're stronger than you thought
As you know it's transitory

'Cause we won't break
Survival is all we've got and our unbearable grief
We'll hold on and won't crack
And we'll value all life

Oh, transitory
Pain is as life itself
Evanescent as it face




4. ENERGIZE ME

Energize me with a simple touch or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame that's burning between us

It's not a fantasy, another mystery
It's just what I can feel, it's something I can see
It's like a memory, an inner melody
It's just what we all know and we all hear

I was blind
I was closed down
Could not feel or set it free!

Energize me with a simple touch or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame that's burning between us

It lies in everyone, this whirling energy
It's all around us too, electrifying you
So dare to set it free, this virtue is the key
To something we all know and we all use

I can feel it's inside me
Open up, enlighten me!

Energize me with a simple touch or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame that's burning between us

Energize me with a simple smile, open up your mind
Energize me, activate the light that's given and taken

Can you believe in the power that's burning between us?
Would you believe if you open up your mind, open up your heart

Energize me with a simple touch or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame that's burning between us

Energize me with a simple smile, open up your mind
Energize me, fire up this flame that's burning forever




5. EQUALLY DESTRUCTIVE

Ground is shaking
Waves are breaking
The wind has lost control

The air is shifting
While its lifting force fools gravity

A huge eruption
Vast explosions
As it bursts the earth

Water's pounding
Waves are sounding deadly and extreme

"But we are equally destructive"

Equally destructive as we are
Don't you think we've also gone too far?
We are just a part of this machine and its endless stream

Alarming silence
Predicts the violence that is yet to come

We are senseless
Proud while blindness is catching up with us

We must measure
While the pressure of nature's force expands

We feel minor
Punished and meager
Betrayed by all our gods

"We are a part of it, we are equally destructive"

Equally destructive as we are
Don't you think we've also gone too far?
We are just a part of this machine and its endless stream




6. WITHERING TIME

Withering time, so elusive
So shapeless
Graceful coil, crumbling glory
It will revive
Exalt the endless chain
Exalt the withering times

Time decides what lives or dies
Time can crawl and time can fly
It can wither and erase
It can make a new beginning

There is nothing time can't beat
There is nothing time will need
To destroy and bloom again
A vicious circle older than the earth

Decay, destroy to reform again
Withering Time

Withering time, so elusive
So shapeless
Graceful coil, crumbling glory
It will revive
Exalt the endless chain
Exalt the withering times

Broken windows, blistering paint
Lashing winds, hot suns and rain
Wood has splintered, walls are cracked
The elements are just as vicious

All what men have made won't last
In the future as in the past
But our memories are strong
And will outlive all circles of time

Time; trascend beyond all life, trascend beyond

On! Until the end of time, on and on!
Live! Before we waste our time, before we run out

Broken, blistering, lashing, splintering, cracking, crawling, flying, withering time

Withering time, so elusive
So shapeless
Graceful coil, crumbling glory
It will revive

Withering time, so elusive
So shapeless
Graceful coil, crumbling glory
It will revive
Exalt the endless chain
Exalt the withering times




7. DE-ENERGIZED

You take, you give nothing but misery
You are reluctant in your vanity
Your eyes are blinded by your conceit
You turn my fire into negative energy!

You are estranged by your jelousy
A weakness in your personality
Your lack of social skills annoy me
You fuel my hate by your negative energy

I see a false alliance causing all this pain
I see a sick relation ending up in vain
I see a world at war because of pride and might
I feel we're all getting de-energized

I am amazed by your ability
To make me feel all this insanity
I am discouraged by your falsity
You sink so low to get things done your way

I see a false alliance causing all this pain
I see a sick relation ending up in vain
I see a world at war because of pride and might
I feel we're all getting de-energized

Unwilling, absent, dissenting
Conflicting, adverse, annoying
You're careless, painless, disgusting
False, ruthless, blinded, recusant

You damage, injure and destroy
Unbalanced, troubled, unfaithful
You're senseless, heartless and fearless
Cold, hostile, distant and empty. You're a freak!

You won't get closer to my dignity
Something you've lost, just like empathy
I won't degrade to your pathetic ways
Nor let you take any more positive energy

I see a false alliance causing all this pain
I see a sick relation ending up in vain
I see a world at war because of pride and might
I feel we're all getting de-energized




8. CRY WITH A SMILE

Cry with a smile
My heart is bleeding
Bewildered I'm here alone
Why is there pain in a beautiful moment?
Why do I feel so lost, so empty?

Cry with a smile
My heart is healing
From pain I knew that would come
Why is there luck in a deeply sad moment?
Why do I feel so calm, so peaceful?

Take my heart and set it free
Take my heart and give it time to heal
I know; in my memories you'll live
Take my heart a little while
Take it with you to the place you'll go
I know we will meet again some day

Cry with a smile
My heart was dreaming
Of time I knew would come to an end
Why do I cry about a beautiful memory?
Why do I feel so hurt, so lonely?

Take my heart and set it free
Take my heart and give it time to heal
I know; in my memories you'll live
Take my heart a little while
Take it with you to the place you'll go
I know we will meet again some day




9. ENVISION

I see it, I hear but cannot know how you are feeling
I sense it but can't comprehend

He's standing there waiting for the news to hear what's wrong with her
His feelings go way beyond my own

Only sense it, only imagine their fate
Just envision, the only way to relate

We try to, we say so but we can only imagine
We want to, but can't empathize

She's lying there crying, for the truth was stronger than her pain
Her feelings go way beyond my own

Only sense it, only imagine their fate
Just envision, the only way to relate for real

Only sense it, only imagine their fate
Just envision, the only way to relate
Can we sense it? Can we imagine their fate?
Just envision, there is no way we relate for real




10. WHO I AM

You hypnotize me!
I do not dare to look
You mesmerize me!
Don't even dare to feel

I want to have it just to prove I can take control
I want to have it just to show them I wont be fooled
I'll take it
I'll break it
Or force it just to let them know who I am, who I am

I should wait and think it over
I don't want to push, that is not who I am, who I am

I'll softly touch this
I'll fire up this flame
I'll hold on gently
It's time to lead the game

I want to have it just to prove I can take control
I want to have it just to show them I wont be fooled
I'll take it
I'll break it
Or force it just to let them know who I am, who I am

I should wait and think it over
I don't want to push, that's not who I am, who I am

I want to have it!
I want to break it and take it, or force it just to let them know who I am, who I am

I should wait and think it over
I don't want to push, oh no, that's not who I am, who I am




11. DREAMFLIGHT

Welcome and wake up!
This is not a dream but something in between that and reality
Wake up if you dare!
This is not the regular nightmare

Before your eyes the world will change
Slowly take you down to unknown places
Welcome to a world that's only yours
Wake up if you dare and just follow me!

Leave me alone, my dreams speak to me or am I still awake?
Leave me alone, I'm my own threat, I'm a victim of my mind
Let go!

I fooled you, I warned you though
I won't let go before you've dreamed all your dreams
I'll play you, you want me to...
You ask for more, you want to know

Leave me now, I need to know I'm in control
Leave me alone, leave me be within my private fantasies
Let go!

I told you, I won't let go
I want to show you what dreams can do for you
They'll free you, they'll open doors, they show you all you want to know

As some is light and some is dark, dreams can be both, they have two sides!

Fear, I am your fear deep inside
Fear, face all your fears deep in this dream, we are the dark side of your mind
Pain, I am your pain deep inside
Pain, feel all your pain deep in this dream
Feel it's a part of you
You are like your dreams, both light as dark, come with us now and explore

Silence, I'm here
No words, no sounds, no pain or doubts
I'm floating, even time itself can never touch me, I am free!

Silence, I'm here
No voices, no music
I'm roaming through this soundless place, leave me here where I am free!

Doubt, I am your doubt deep inside
I am all you try to hide
Hate, I am your hate deep inside
I am your mirror, your fright!

Energized by nightly views
You are the dream, the dream is you, aah...

So face it, you know I'm right!
You have no reason to resent me and fight
You are me and I am you! The other side of the sleepy truth

Leave me please, how can I rest with you inside?
Leave me alone, I'm too tired for these crazy theories
Let go!

I'll leave you, but won't let go
For I am part of all you'll ever do
I'll help you, I'll open doors and show you all you need to know for I'm your "dream energizer"!




12. EMPTY MEMORIES

Here, here in this heart it's cold, cold as stone
Must welcome these memories, as shallow as my eyes have slowly become

Hearts, frail heart left broken
Cold and known for its bitter agony
Here are the memories as empty as my life has slowly become
Sting, crush and bite in my soul, my heart bleeds

Times changed forever that night
Leaving only empty memories
Empty memories won't heal the pain

We know only sorrow
There's no future in tomorrow
All our hopes were buried to young for the years that should have followed

We know only hatred
There's no future in our anguish
For all hope is buried with life and reprisal will be ours

It's empty
We're empty
They're empty memories

Here, here in this heart
Cold as stone, for no feelings there to warm
It is as empty as our dreams and hopes
Now our future is gone
It stings and bites in my soul, my heart bleeds

Times changed forever that night
Leaving only empty memories
Time was changed forever that night
Leaving me - no, no, no - alone with empty memories
Empty memories
Empty memories




13. LONELY

What would happen if I go?
Just leave without any reason why?
Would someone wonder why? Would someone miss me?

What would happen it I couldn't take it?
Just break without any signs up front
Would someone pick it up?
Would someone help me out?

'Cause life ain't easy for me
Ain't easy alone
This is my path, it's lonely

What would happen if I change?
Just wake up one day not quite the same
Would someone wonder why? Would someone know how I was before?
Would they like me better knowing I am not the one I was
What would happen if I lie?

'Cause life ain't easy for me
Ain't easy alone
This is my path, it's lonely
