Colours in the Dark tracks

Lyrics


1. VICTIM OF RITUAL

Black Eyes and hardly breathing
When there's no light
You sacrifice
Alone, a monster living
You lost the fight before the fall

How did you end up in hell?

Hysterical, tragical
Victim of Ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She's a killer, killer
She's a killer, killer

Cold eyes, for every seeing
They try to hide, in thin disguise
Denied your soul from singing
The darkest night, the night you died

How did you end up in hell?

Hysterical, tragical
Victim of Ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She's a killer, killer
She's a killer, killer

Pandemonium, where's your heart from?
Pandemonium, where's your heart from?

Hysterical, tragical
Victim of Ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She's a killer, killer
She's a killer, killer




2. 500 LETTERS

500 letters from a stranger at my door
500 letters words like stars no one can see

It felt so even seen, a childish game
Lines of poetry without a name
Whizz of paranoia wished upon the page
A soon obsession turned to rage

Why do you love me?
Why do you want to have me?

500 letters from a stranger at my door
500 weapons I can't take it anymore
500 letters words like stars no one can see
500 secrets slowly killing me

At the mercy of a violent hand
Trowing inches in my head
I can't scape the way I feel inside
In every shadow just a breath behind

Why do you love me?
Why do you want to have me?

500 letters from a stranger at my door
500 weapons I can't take it anymore
500 letters words like stars no one can see
500 secrets slowly killing me

They found the final letter lying by his side
A smile was on his face, cold as ice
One last message written only for me
Now you won't forget
I see you in your dreams

500 letters from a stranger at my door
500 weapons I can't take it anymore
500 letters words like stars no one can see
500 secrets slowly killing me




3. LUCID DREAMER

Memoria, gloria
One last time with you
The feeling remains the same
But I just walk through

The story of forgotten fields
I run with you
To them it's the same
A game, the shame, I leave you

Gloria, Memoria
You can do anything
When you feel it
Burning at your wings
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

You can go everywhere
You can rise up
See me standing there
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

You're out of air
Memoria, no one hurts like you
Nothing to loose
And all I hear is silence

I'm not afraid
I'm living with colors everyday
The moment is now
You're far away to find me

Gloria, Memoria
You can do anything
When you feel it
Burning at your wings
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

You can go everywhere
You can rise up
See me standing there
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

You can do anything
When you feel it
Burning at your wings
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

You can go everywhere
You can rise up
See me standing there
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer

You can go everywhere
You can rise up
See me standing there
Just look in the mirror
I'm a lucid dreamer




4. 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




5. MYSTIQUE VOYAGE

Welcome to my mystique voyage
An inner trip to fantasy, freedom and love
A conquest of fear, lonesomess and dislike
Welcome to my world!

Do you see them flying?
Signs are never lying.
Journey to the east will show
What the seven wonders know.
Live without finding,
Search without learning.
When I face the endless sea
All mystery’s revealed.

Zarpa el barco al llamado del mar.
Su alma navega más sin encontrar.
Al amar espera la tormenta
Con los fantasmas del coral.

Where the breeze is welcoming me
Home will always be.

Va la niña, al llamado del mar
Cabellos de agua y piernas de sal.
Mejor deja el puerto, no volver
Que anclarse a morir.

Uusi aamu koittaa
my Mystique Voyage
Tuuli purtta soittaa
Haaveet kauas kuljetaa

Zarpa el barco al llamado del mar.
Su alma navega más sin encontrar.
Al amar espera la tormenta
Olas fantasmas y coral

Va la niña, al llamado del mar
Cabellos de agua y piernas de sal.
Mejor deja el puerto, no volver
Que anclarse a morir.




6. DARKNESS (PETER GABRIEL COVER)

I'm scared of swimming in the sea
Dark shapes moving under me
Every fear I swallow makes me small
Inconsequential things occur
Alarms are triggered
Memories stir
It's not the way it has to be

I'm afraid of what I do not know
I hate being undermined
I'm afraid I can be devil man
And I’m scared to be divine
Don't mess with me my fuse is short
Beneath this skin these fragments caught

When I allow it to be
There's no control over me
I have my fears
But they do not have me

Walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
The deeper I go, the darker it gets
I peer through the window
Knock at the door
And the monster I was
So afraid of
Lies curled up on the floor
Is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

I cry until I laugh

I'm afraid of being mothered
With my balls shut in the pen
I'm afraid of loving women
And I’m scared of loving men
Flashbacks coming in every night
Don't tell me everything's alright

When I allow it to be
It has no control over me
I own my fear
So it doesn't own me

Walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
The deeper I go, the darker it gets
I peer through the window
Knock at the door
And the monster I was
So afraid of
Lies curled up on the floor
Is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

I cry until I laugh




7. DELIVERANCE

Dreams go on forever
With only one life
You cannot relive
What you gave me never
Fear of being hurtful
Feelings left unspoken
I'm breaking myself
Out with tears
Through the years
Into you

I find myself in love
The fall of you defining me
I'm always home with her as a shield
You are me

Far away to heaven
I run with the wind
That's how I begin
Road to my deliverance
Paved with my desire
Breathing air like fire
I start to give in
My last war

Where I can't walk you carry me
From now into eternity
Into you

I find myself in love
The fall of you defining me
I'm always home with her as a shield
You are me

I found the world through love
The door of hope you cannot see
Army of one is waiting to be
You are me




8. NEVERLIGHT

Neverlight
Into the shadow of my darker side
Where no one finds me
How I die
Is when you save me
Are you terrified enough to watch me go?

I guard the boundaries of your world

Don't make my inside fall apart
A prison I don't need
Where no one even hears your heart
Insanity

Neverlight
Forever after in eternal night
I fall to pieces
Did I lie?
To form a proposition
Cast aside in my condition now
Oh I,

I guard the boundaries of your world

Don't make my inside fall apart
A prison I don't need
Where no one even hears your heart
Insanity

So far away from me

Don't make my inside fall apart
A prison I don't need
Where no one even hears your heart
Insanity




9. UNTIL SILENCE

When just a light remains
There in dark returns like echo waves
I hope I'm not too late
For this final twist of fate

Once grief has past me by
The pantomime of time comes healing
Feel mockery caress in me
Now that yesterday is burning free

Goodbye, I know my love will go on
And wait until the tears are gone
Goodbye, I know this love will go on
Until the silence says goodbye

I saw our memories die
For our dreams had lost their meaning
But dreams, still in my heart
Are painting colours in the dark

Goodbye, I know my love will go on
And wait until the tears are gone
Goodbye, I know this love will go on
Until the silence says goodbye

Goodbye, I know my love will go on
And wait until the tears are gone
Goodbye, I know that this love will go on
Until the silence says goodbye

Goodbye, I know our love will go on
Till silence says goodbye




10. MEDUSA

Come to see me
I will show you
The island of the roses

Come to love me
I will play you
With fearless temptation

Close your eyes and leave the empty grail
Taste the sweet wine from my lips
Face your virgin bride without a veil
And I will forgive you all your sins

Dance with me the dance of fire
Feel our worlds colliding
Join me in my cold desire
Last for you to see will be my eyes

A beautiful evil cursed with hearts of stone
Feed my hunger with your kiss
Taking a life tonight is mine alone
Give me a luscious sigh of bliss

Dance with me the dance of fire
Feel our worlds colliding
Join me in my cold desire
Last for me to see will be your eyes

Come to see me
You will find my
Truth in the reflection

Come to love me
I will call you
The daughter of the darkness

Come to see me
You can call me
The daughter of the darkness

Come to love me
I will play you
With fearless temptation

Come to see me
You will find my
I will find your
Truth in the reflection

Come to love me
I will have you
Suffer in perfection
