1. SHADOW IN THE RAIN

The grin was not a smile
The wolf was not your friend
The grip is not of love nor hate

It's got you on your knees
It's whispering in your head
It'll see to that you meet your end

Silent whispers, silent pleads
But no-one hears you cry
The beast inside you never sleeps
It'll never say goodbye

You can't remember
You can't regret
Just stand there mesmerized
You're just as good as dead
Become a shadow in the rain
Collect your prize, be swept away

You're crying for your loss
You're beyond taking the blame
Addiction's torn your soul away
Distorted eyes the broken mind
Howl at the moon in the sky
With shaking hands you dig your own grave

Hopeless prayers as you weep
Still no-one hears your cry
The beast inside you never sleeps
Just kiss the world goodbye

You can't remember
You can't regret
Just stand there mesmerized
You're just as good as dead
Become a shadow in the rain
And as it falls you're washed away

You can't remember
You can't regret
Staring with empty eyes
Hear voices in your head
Become a shadow in the rain
That's what you are
Shadow in the rain

Hopeless prayers as you weep
Still no-one hears your cry
The beast inside you never sleeps
Just kiss the world goodbye




2. KING OF THE NIGHT

Boy selling papers
Caught a glimpse behind the scenes
Saw they had more
Than he had ever dreamed

Their suits were tailormade
Their boots were shining clean
Careless tough faces
Looking proud as can be

Started looking how they ruled the streets
So they were livin' it up, livin' it up
Beyond his dreams

King of the night
Once and forever
Pay your respect or you'll go down
Now he's the king of the night
Hell or high water
I dare you, try to take my crown

Left his old man's business to
Run them little services
Wore his hat way tilted and
Rolled up his sleeves

Fought, got arrested, jailed
Took a bullet in their name
Got himself a gang name
Loved it all the way

His guts were tested on the streets
And he never gave up, never gave up
He was bound to be

Yeah, you'll go down

King of the night

King of the night (9x)




3. STORMCHILD

Some said
It's nothing but a story
Some swore
It's all just old man's fairytales
Beware,
She's come to claim her glory
Here comes the stormchild

Behold, the heir of Mother Nature
Dark clouds, her fingers weaving nightmares
Trough the sky
Tiptoe the mountains, dance the sky
Our fate is just a heartbeat away
A heartbeat away

Stormchild
Stormchild
Laughing as she rides the skies
Stormchild
Stormchild
Now the time is here
Better bow in fear before her
Worship the stormchild

Closing in from all directions
The hailing thunder, the roaring wind,
The storming clouds
Steamroll the skies, enrage the waters
And we can only
Watch her play
It's time to pay

Ruler of the skies
Worship the stormchild
Kneel before her might

No need for asking why
Time to live, time to die
Kneel and pray for your poor souls
Storm's rising, you will fall

Ruler of the skies, oh yeah
Worship the stormchild
Kneel before her might, oh yeah




4. SENTENCED

I remember
I recall
Like it was yesterday
As I drag the ball and the chain

Lifetime has gone
No parole, there's no getaway
Time'll be done my dying day

Doesn't matter how it all went
Doesn't matter how it started
No-one else was left to blame

Sentenced
Why couldn't you just turn and walk away
She whispered, tears in her eyes
Somewhere in my mind
I knew there would be hell to pay
I tried to keep my pride
I was sentenced for life

I didn't lie
I didn't fight
Didn't try to run away
Just raised my hands and dropped the gun

All was calm
When they came
All was said and done
And I just watched the smoke go down, down, down

I finished what they started
Doesn't matter how it all went
All was gone just the same

Sentenced
Why couldn't you just turn and walk away
She whispered, tears in her eyes
Somewhere in my mind
I knew there would be hell to pay
I tried to keep my pride

Hide it all inside
I was sentenced for life




5. HELLHORN

Above the masses raging
On the balcony
He talks about a paradise
Not meant for all
His voice is spreading poison
The target generation
Will never get old

Painting a picture
Of a promised land
Acting he's the messenger, he's the hand of God
It's so easy to believe him
Just sew him on your sleeve and
Lose your soul

Children please follow me
I'll lead you to your destiny
Walk into fire, my disciples

Children just obey me
I've paved your road to tragedy
Singing the hymn of the hellhorn

Easy contrast between ebony and ivory
Different languages, the culturs,
The different gods
If only seeing was believing
Then no-one could be steering
Us into the dark

Listen to me

Children just obey me
And march on to the battlefield
Singing the hymn of the hellhorn

Children please follow me
Children just obey me
Children please follow me
Don't think, just follow me

Children

Children, children
Children just obey me
Singing the hymn of the hellhorn

Children, children
(Follow me, follow me, follow)
Singing the hymn of the hellhorn




6. MR. UNIVERSE

Do you like what you see? (2x)

I was taking off, I was leaving ground
I was rocketing the blue skies with my
Engines roaring

It doesn't seem so long ago
But as I take a look down, now I see
The world's gone for me

Feel unreal, I drift in dreams of home
But I'm still out here alone
Trying to fight the tears of sadness
Reflection in the mirror, madness
Calling me
Calling me

Do you like what you see? (2x)

Tell me how does it feel
Where the dreams have come real
You're the last man in the universe
You're the king of the hill
It is mission fulfilled
When there's no return
For Mister Universe

If only I could turn back time
I would give up on ambitions
End this search for glory

Getting closer to the end of the line
Now my eyes are finally open at the
End of story

Deep inside I know there's no way home
Oh, I'm left out here alone
Trying to fight the tears of sadness
Reflection in the mirror, madness
Calling me
Calling me

Do you like what you see? (2x)

So do you like what you see?
You're a statue of greed
The last man in the universe
You're the king of the hill
With your mission fulfilled
And there's no return
For Mister Universe

Do you like what you see? (2x)




7. DON'T TOUCH THE SUN

Like fallen leaves
Victims of time
Memories of old times
Wind blows, they fly

Forgotten promises
Someone else's dreams
It wasn't you
It wasn't me
It wasn't reality

Don't say you're sorry
For once treating me so wrong
You sure did hurt me then
But the tears, they are long gone

So after all this time
When you ask me how I am
Couldn't tell
Couldn't say
Oh, try to understand

Don't touch the sun
Don't touch the sun
It'll burn you alive
Ashes to the ground
And it's all about the stages
Where lovers turn to strangers
Leaving just a shadow in the heart

Oh Lord, I was just a young boy
I thought love's a friend
I couldn't read between the lines
No I didn't understand

That reaching out for you
Was like reaching for the sun
Hurt my eyes
Struck my mind
And then burned my heart

Don't touch the sun (2x)
Oh, the sun
Don't touch the sun

Don't touch the sun, no no (2x)
The sun
Don't touch the sun, no no, no no
It'll burn you alive, no no no
The sun
Don't touch the sun, no, no, no, no




8. RUN DOWN

The wind's blowing ashes
The sky's filled with dust
Too scared to run
But God knows we must

Missed our last ride to a safe haven

Caught in a landslide
Of molten crust
Preachers of wisdom
Victims of trust

Some are cryin', some are praying

Run down the hill
Like never before
Mind your footsteps
Fly, don't fall
The ground is shaking
The earth is breathing fire

Oh Holy Maria
What have we done
Leaning the wrong way
The hill's going down

Trading places, Hell and Heaven

Run down the hill
Stumble, be gone
The devil's laughing above us all
Twisting, breaking
The earth is breathing fire

Run down the hill (3x)
Just run it down
Run it down
Just run it down
Run down the hill




9. HEART OF DARKNESS

I have drifted along the rivers
Now I've found my destiny
Of my sins I can't be delivered
I have fouled, I have caused this grief

Dying light, September
Fading away on me
Cold wind of November
Running trough me

Heart of darkness
Invisible lines
Strangling the love of my life
Now I'm blinded
Can't run, cannot hide
Driven by demons of lust

Love is said to cure you
Love is surely known to kill
Flying high, the end is cruel
When it's time to pay the bill

Dying light, September
Running away from me
Freezing wind of November
Blowing inside of me

Heart of darkness
Invisible lines
Killing the love of my life
Now I'm blinded
Can't run, cannot hide
Driven by demons of lust

Love me just one more time
I'll be gone eternally
Someday, in another life
My heart may find it's peace

(Heart of darkness)
Strangling the love of my life
(Heart of darkness)
Driven by demons of lust
(Heart of darkness)
Strangling the love of my life
(Heart of darkness)
Killing the love of my life
(Heart of darkness)
Driven by demons of lust
(Heart of darkness)




10. LEARN TO LIVE

See the skies
See the sheeps, the clouds, the meadow
Learning new wonders every day

See the woods
Tune your ears to the sounds of nature
I hope that when I'm gone they'll still be there

Wondering the world
Little shiny eyes wide open
I'll pray you get to learn to live

Hope you'll know
When you're no longer children
That the world was meant for all to live

I hope you grow
Not cursing your fathers
Blaming them for taking away your dreams

When you've grown
Will the world still be turning?
Will you learn to live in peace?
Seeing you wondering the world
Little shiny eyes wide open
I'll pray you get to learn to live

Learn to live

See the woods
Tune your ears to the sounds of the nature
I hope that when I'm gone they'll still be there...
