Lyrics



1. AFTER THE RAIN

Sometimes at night I feel them
Waiting for the dawn
I hear them call out to me; no one do I see
I wander alone through the rain
Drifting I hear them calling;
This time there's no uncertainty

From the depths below
Where only demons dare to go
Resonates the unseen force
Rising through the fragile core

After the rain comes crashing down
Who will be left to sing the songs?
And when the new day has begun;
who'll wipe the tears away?
After the rain comes crashing down
There's no one left to carry on
And then the bells begin to chime
For whom it tolls tonight?

Silently I slip into their lair
Never a doubt as I see the despair;
I sense it everywhere
Now I know what must be done
I take a final look and then I'm gone
My story will live forever on!

From the depths below
Where only demons dare to go
Resonates the unseen force
Rising through the fragile core

After the rain comes crashing down
Who will be left to sing the songs?
And when the new day has begun;
who'll wipe the tears away?
After the rain comes crashing down
There's no one left to carry on
And then the bells begin to chime
For whom it tolls tonight?

From far away they came to elighten us
Offering to change the ways
That have led us down the road to re




2. THE BEST IS YET TO COME

Did you know the past?
Did you know that it holds the key
To the part of your mind
That unlocks your memories?

Future fades too fast
Fades away from you and me
Will we be the last
To find the truth to the greatest mystery?

I know a place just follow me there
And I will show you what lies ahead
A different space out there somewhere
Between the living and the dead

The Best I Yet To Come
Our work has just begun
The road that lies ahead
Will lead to brighter days
Don't be afraid to try
I know you're wondering why
But in the end you'll see
And you will believe
Some things just have to be

In the final dance
Will you take a chance with me?
Call it happenstance
Call it out destiny

The Best I Yet To Come
Our work has just begun
The road that lies ahead
Will lead to brighter days
Don't be afraid to try
I know you're wondering why
But in the end you'll see
And you will believe

The final moments have begun
OUr world is waking up
We take the steps to build upon
It's time for the world to see

Let's take a chance before it's gone
And tear the castles down
We'll chase them all out on the run
And set our spirits free




3. MIDNIGHT SUN

Running hard through the snow
No idea where to go
Is there someone there in front of me?
Try so hard, still can't see
Change the path, fight the urge
To give up, to let go
Will someone come rescue me?
How did this come to be?

Far away from a normal town
Feel so lost, starting to drown
I know who's done this me
Not the work of a mortal being
Came so close in the dead of the night
Didn't hear a whisper but felt the fright
Lifted high above me
Shadows were all that I could see

I don't know whom to trust
Tell me where can I run?
To the left or to the right
There is nowhere to hide
I am just one of the many abducted
No one is sane
In the land of the Midnight Sun

Still have so far to go
Escaped their clutch; that I know
Are they coming after me?
Do I have a chance to flee?
A faint scream distantly
Another caught and now is gone
Why is no one helping us?
What's to become of us?

Far away from a normal town
Feel so lost, starting to drown
I know who's done this me
Not the work of a mortal being
Came so close in the dead of the night
Didn't hear a whisper but felt the fright
Lifted high above me
Shadows were all that I could see

I don't know whom to trust
Tell me where can I run?
To the left or to the right
There is nowhere to hide
I am just one of the many abducted
No one is sane
In the land of the Midnight Sun

I don't know who to trust
Tell me where can I run?
To the left or to the right
There is nowhere to hide
I am just one of the many abducted
No one is sane
In the land of the Midnight Sun

I don't know where to rung
Tell me who can I trust?
Far ahead behind
There is nowhere to hide
I am just one of the one who were taken
No one is safe
In the land of the Midnight Sun

Whoa are you now?

I don't know whom to trust
Tell me where can I run?
To the left or to the right
There is nowhere to hide
I am just one of the many abducted
No one is sane
In the land of the Midnight Sun

I don't know where to rung
Tell me who can I trust?
Far ahead behind
There is nowhere to hide
I am just one of the one who were taken
No one is safe
In the land of the Midnight Sun




4. THE GHOST WITHIN MY HEART

Without you, without you
Thenights are long, cold dark
Without you, without you, I'm yearning
Foryour sinful touch

Far away we will find our own way
In decay we will fade into the light

I know you're always with me
Together just you and me
I know you're right beside me
The Ghost Within Me
I know you're always near me
Forever we will always be
I feel deep inside of me
The Ghost Within my Heart

Without you, without you, I feel so empty inside
Without you, without you, I walk into the endless
night

Far away we will find our own way
In decay we will fade into the light

I know you're always with me
Together just you and me
I know you're right beside me
The Ghost Within Me
I know you're always near me
Forever we will always be
I feel deep inside of me
The Ghost Within my Heart

Far away from the lives we used to know
All I ever wanted was to be with you




5. ALL THE LIES

Somewhere in time there was a dream
A dream I felt deep inside
That no one could understand

Where do I go now?
When will I find my way?

All The Lies I've left behind
Seem so far now from my mind
Now I take I look inside, what's left of me
From the life that once was mine
I tried to heal the wounds of time
Never really did believe the lies were real

From beyond I'm reminded of a memory
Now it’s gone into the gray of the moment

Where do I go now?
When will I find my way?

All The Lies I've left behind
Seem so far now from my mind
Now I take I look inside, what's left of me
From the life that once was mine
I tried to heal the wounds of time
Never really did believe the lies were real

Where do I go now?
When will I find my way?

All The Lies I've left behind
Seem so far now from my mind
Now I take I look inside, what's left of me
From the life that once was mine
I tried to heal the wounds of time
Never really did believe the lies were real




6. UNLEASH THE FLOOD

Serge down mighty storms
Destroy the ones before!
Spend eternity in torment
Begin your descent

Fire breathed the life from the enemy
Sisters in arms rise the new army
Cleanse mother earth
Of patriarch devastation
Rise mountains a new reformation

Time waits for none
You cannot run
Gathering night rages on
Sensing dark waves
Riding the days
Sea of flames ablaze
War devous souls
Written in scrolls
Regaining control
Mixing with mud
Venomous blood;
Unleash The Flood!

Your God was a toy
Destroy all relics
From their ashes rise the phoenix
Heaven was here and will be again
Immortal one
We now reign

Time waits for none
You cannot run
Gathering night rages on
Sensing dark waves
Riding the days
Sea of flames ablaze
War devous souls
Written in scrolls
Regaining control
Mixing with mud
Venomous blood;
Unleash The Flood!

Disgraced the gift
Life was so pure
The greed and the plague
Left only one cure

Time waits for none

You cannot run
Gathering night rages on
Sensing dark waves
Riding the days
Sea of flames ablaze
War devous souls
Written in scrolls
Regaining control
Mixing with mud
Venomous blood;
Unleash The Flood!




7. A DIFFERENT STORY

Nights I spend awake
Waiting for the sign
Days never ended
When will the time arrive?
Far beyond my sight
Hiding in the dark
A semblance of a feeling that was lost
But now is found

As I take a look around me
Never did I feel so lonely
In the dream
The voice had told me
Now it's time
For A Different Story

Ever will I know
What lies inside my mind?
Searching through my pride
I find no place to hide
Blindly still I go
And leave the past behind
Faithfully embrace the light

As I take a look around me
Never did I feel so lonely
In the dream
The voice had told me
Now it's time
For A Different Story

Light surrounds the dark
As it pulls me in
I take a look behind
And see the golden door
It draws closer now
As the touch begins
I step into beyond
And flee forever more




8. WELCOME MY FRIENDS OF MISERY

I know the games they play
But it's not for me to say
They take the dreams away
And only the scars remain
I'll go another way
Avoid the light of day
And take a chance
That will lead me back home once again

It all comes down to this
We must all coexist

Welcome My Friend Of Mysery
It's been so lons since we set on...
...Our journey through eternity
And all of the worlds we left behind
Time has been kind to you and me
No matter what comes we must carry on
Flying on wings of destiny
Through infinity and what lies beyond

A tempting melody beckons invitingly
Draws me closer to the force
That keeps me Earthbound
Our past is swept away
Vanished into thin air
They trapped us once again
Now we take yet another futile spin

It all comes down to this
We must all coexist

Welcome My Friend Of Mysery
It's been so lons since we set on...
...Our journey through eternity
And all of the worlds we left behind
Time has been kind to you and me
No matter what comes we must carry on
Flying on wings of destiny
Through infinity and what lies beyond

Just hold my hand
And don't ever let go
Follow me to the other side
Where so few go




9. MEMORIES OF ANOTHER TIME

As I look upon my life
There's a memory of a child
That I knew so long ago
In a distant point in time

We were once so young and free
That's where I still long to be
In the warmness of a love
That was yours and was mine

Sometimes when alone
I still think of you

Memories Of Another Time
When we were young
And the world was ours
Memories Of Another Time
We stood as one
And we never faltered

Running free under the sun
Our days had just begun
Carefree glances instead of words
Not a worry in the world

Hand in hand
We marched through time
From our childhood and beyond
Every time I close my eyes
You are all that I see

Sometimes when alone
I still think of you

Memories Of Another Time
When we were young
And the world was ours
Memories Of Another Time
We stood as one
And we never faltered

One step that's wrong can throw
Your world into the unknown
One step that's wrong can throw
Your world into the darkness
One voice unheard
Turns to silence in the void
One wheel that turns is heard
In the calm before the storm

Sometimes when alone
I still think of you

Memories Of Another Time
When we were young
And the world was ours
Memories Of Another Time
We stood as one
And we never faltered




10. FROM THE GUTTER TO THE THRONE

From The Gutter To The Throne
All the dark places man has gone
There's so much to learn
In front of us

All the sadness we have known
And the madness we have shown
Can we escape the wheel
We're stuck upon?

From beginning to end
All the time that we've spent
Chasing dreams
As the veil ascends
Will we cease to pretend that we're free?
Led to all of the hate
Countless fears
As the darkness descends
Will we ever transcend
And find out what it means?

We're the ones that failed to grow
Even though we've lived before
In this land that has replenished us

One day soon will come a storm
That will wash away all that's born
All the will remain will be forsaken

Take a look in the mirror
Do you like what you see?
Is your reflection getting clearer
Is it what you like it to be?
The books have all been written
Now it's up to history
Our final days are getting nearer
It's time to rise up and be free?

From beginning to end
All the time that we've spent
Chasing dreams
As the veil ascends
Will we cease to pretend that we're free?
Led to all of the hate
Countless fears
As the darkness descends
Will we ever transcend
And find out what it means?

There's a hand made of stone
Holding down our ascent
Truth be known
We stand alone
All alone

Take a look in the mirror
Do you like what you see?
Is your reflection getting clearer
Is it what you like it to be?
The books have all been written
Now it's up to history
Our final days are getting nearer
It's time to rise up and be free?

From beginning to end
All the time that we've spent
Chasing dreams
As the veil ascends
Will we cease to pretend that we're free?
Led to all of the hate
Countless fears
As the darkness descends
Will we ever transcend
And find out what it means?

From The Gutter To The Throne...




11. GENES OF ISIS

From long ago, before the storm
I knew that I was alone
Left to my world, strange and unknown
Now it has take its toll
There was a dream, that brought me here
Far away, far from my home
There was a dream, that brought me here
Far away, far away and alone

Fate's not smiled down on me
Still I cry for my reprieve
Time slips by, never here
Always gone, never seems so near

All along, you were the one
That planted the seed, deep inside me
Dreams go on, one into one
Never a doubt, that you were beside me
Still I'm strong, I will go on
Even though, you have abandoned me
You've closed the door, trapped my soul
But one day I will be free!

Just let me be, here in my peace
Where I can be alone with thoughts
No company, just misery
And the burden of what has become of us all
There was a dream, that brought me here
Far away, far from my home
There was a dream, that brought me here
Far away, far away and alone

Fate's not smiled down on me
Still I cry for my reprieve
Time slips by, never here
Always gone, never seems so near

All along, you were the one
That planted the seed, deep inside me
Dreams go on, one into one
Never a doubt, that you were beside me
Still I'm strong, I will go on
Even though, you have abandoned me
You've closed the door, trapped my soul
But one day I will be free!

All along, you were the one
That planted the seed, deep inside me
Dreams go on, one into one
Never a doubt, that you were beside me
Still I'm strong, I will go on
Even though, you have abandoned me
You've closed the door, trapped my soul
But one day I will be free!
