After Forever

Mea Culpa tracks

Lyrics

DISC 1

1. MEA CULPA

O mi jesu, demitte nobis debita nostra,
salva nos ab igne inferiori, perduc in caelum
Omnes animas, praesertim eas,
quae misericordiae tuae maxime indigent

Sicut erat in principio
et nunc et semper et insaecula
saeculorum




2. FOLLOW IN THE CRY

Behind your facade hides an indomitable
lust for power and tyranny
Taking advantage of your pendencies

Fear is the doom, doom of us all
Instead of exterminating the weed
We allow it to overgrow our function

All means are justified for the "djihad fi sabil Allah"

I embrace you, accept my soul
I shall make my life subordinate to you
Live like your rules and laws prescribe
and follow you wherever I go

Follow in the cry

Hang this heretic who's indulged in unchaste thoughts
Silence him such as the laws of the vellums prescribe
Pusillanimous massacres the order of the day
On behalf of power-hungry fundamentalists




3. YIELD TO TEMPTATION

They told you not to yield to temptation
And opened their arms,
Make your own inferences...

Inscrutable chaos in my head, inevitably
Greed will take its toll
Why?
There's no place to hide
Let me free myself

The anathema's driving millions,
Together in the pustules of our earth
Greed and self-denial,
The cause of unimpeded desecration of the truth

They told you not to yield to temptation,
But offered you only hypocrisy and ruin

The phantom of damnation
Threw her coat over humanity

They told you not to yield to temptation,
But offered you only hypocrisy and ruin

They told you not to yield to temptation,
But offered you only hypocrisy and ruin

Captive in the shackles of this indoctrination,
Depraved souls wished to be pure
Delight in deformity,
The last convulsions are building up
A bridge to a new era

The assumption of a faded supposition,
Never shall I be a marionette

The embrace that smothers..




4. SILENCE FROM AFAR

When the fate leaves you behind
and drags me of to an unknown destination
Shall my tears shape a sea
on which your boat has to reach the area

When the storm is most violent
and the horizon seems to be far away
You'll find strength to go on
and conquer the misery that wants to bring you down

When silence from afar is close at hand
our harmony becomes as elusive as time

Viribus exhaustus sentio meum finem
Meam amicam viduam relinquens




5. WINGS OF ILLUSION

(No lyrics available)




6. BEYOND ME

I know I'm alone, but somebody's watching me
Follows me everywhere I go
A cold flow surprised me again, I shiver
The presence of something I can hear it's breathing

Leave me alone, wherever you came from
Hearing so much voices, no one's talking
Oh leave me alone

Leave me alone, wherever you came from
Hearing so much voices, no one's talking

Waiting for something, nothing in the black of the night
Creeps around you, the invisible force that makes you crazy
I can't remember how it feels to be warm, to be alone...
Without that fear deep inside me

Icons of death float on beyond me
whispering my name and breathing my fear...

The menace of insanity
Inner voices cry out for action
Defenceless as I am
Lost in the alleged paradise

I'm not sure if I am here or elsewhere
Searching for satisfaction
Beyond the frontiers of my comprehension

Leave me alone, wherever you came from
Hearing so much voices, no one's talking

Leave me alone, wherever you came from
Hearing so much voices, no one's talking
Oh leave me alone




7. FORLORN HOPE

An old man is proud
but behind his modest smile lies the grief
Only one picture of his brave son remains

It seems that the vicious circle
Can never be broken through

The hopeful ones gathered their strength
To achieve the apparent impossible
But all plans seem to be in vain

As a soldier of Allah
He's an example for the others
On his bloody way to immortality

It seems that the vicious circle
Can never be broken through
Because old wounds are reopened every time

This Intifada as a device
To thwart the peace negotiations

He can rely on a reward in the hereafter
Eternal paradise awaits him

Pugnacity
With our blood
Show no mercy
With our soul
Die for heaven
An eye for an eye
Burn to let them...
Suffer for all their actions

We will not move an inch
They won't play in our hands
We will not tolerate those who defy

We will not hesitate
To start an attack
If you undermine the agreement

Let them suffer!




8. FOR THE TIME BEING

Once he was someone whose honesty made me believe
that we could rely on him

Don't adhere to much to people who have no worth
and parts of life which don't last forever

He is branded as a hypocrite,
promted by the provoked will of his father

Don't adhere to much to people who have no worth
and parts of life which don't last forever

For the Time Being
Be yourself, don't conform to the opinion of others
Life is too short to fall into prudence

You needed lies to save your skin
You'd better take your own responsibilities

Desipio
Incogitabilis (4x)

I don't feel compassion anymore
You're old enough to stand up for yourself




9. IMPERFECT TENSES

Why can't they see?
They're to blame, I can't forgive
It left a permanent mark behind,
My weakness, my strength

I'm waiting for the perfect sign
To reveal what lies inside
There's no lie in trying,
Why do you fear me?

Why can't you see?
There's neither blame nor forgiveness
Be strong by being susceptible,
And don't quail; your frankness is your strength
And shows their weakness

I'm / Your waiting for the perfect sign
To reveal what lies inside
There's no lie in trying
Why do you fear me?

Why should I fear you?
An open heart is just as confronting as honesty!

Why can't I forgive?
You must stop to condemn the past

Why can't this fear be my guide?
It will be your strength if you dare

There's no blame in my life
Nor forgiveness for the pain

I will show them!
Let them know who you are!
This is my/your perfect revelation




10. MONOLITH OF DOUBT

The ordeal has begun
To oblige the unknown, within me

As I drown
Cannot remember, cannot think
As I sink, deep...

Near the monolith of doubt
Creeps the fear
The fear to lose yourself
In the severe reflection

I don't know
A flashing moment that froze in me
My whole existence passed by
Through the trusted eyes of a mirror
But it wasn't me I could see

This monolith of everything that I have been
Is vacillated and aghast
The inexorable time has taught me once again
That my features will change and macerate me

See, it's me, my monolith of doubt




11. INTRINSIC

At night, assimilate life
In the infinite realm
Of our intrinsic side

Find, the missing parts of the mind
The hidden truth behind
Our dungeon of thoughts, this labyrinth

Search, it has a reason and a meaning
Remembered and repeated
A guide, not to be ignored

Feel, there's so much to feel
Amnesia must confiscate an elusive link
to consciousness

It's there; cause there's so much we don't know
Even our own true face
It's there, facing what we can't have

Our ideals ain't true, naked and exposed
To the bareness of what's real
Boundless fantasy, becomes reality
As we breathe water and run through the sand

Whispers and a scream, flying high, falling down
And a face with no features or name
Exposed to live, we can only divine
Tell me, what's your reality?




12. EMPHASIS

The game is over, time has taught life
Open your eyes and embrace our so-called paradise
All the notions and thoughts
Devise a way to make it yours
The enigma of a reason

How can life be what you want it to be
Find the emphasis in your own reality

Deviate from the search with episodic glimpses
Of a spectrum no one can see or feel, nor declare

Slowly become aware life knows its prophecies
Find the emphasis in your own reality

In all life you see
A sudden shifting of events
What's coincidence, what's faith?

The ambiguity makes the sense of our destiny worth searching for
What can it induce?

If our being was omniscient?
There's so much you'll never know, but

Your life will be what you want it to be
Find the emphasis in your own reality




13. MY PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE

She kept her beauty [she kept her beauty concealed]
concealed behind a curtain [behind a curtain of suspense]
and endures her fate [and endures her fate]
moulded by an ancient culture

The honour wasn't allowed [the honour wasn't allowed]
to be injured [to be injured]
she is going to live
she is going to live as her
community expects her to

I find myself confined, between furtive desires and feelings of guilt

These are my last words
I'm gonna leave you
I can't stand your narrow mindedness any longer
forgive me...

I find myself confined, between furtive desires and feelings of guilt




14. WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER

There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams
Yet slips away from us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
There's no chance for us
It's all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever

Who dares to love forever
Oh oo woh, when love must die

But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can live forever
And we can love forever
Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Forever is our today
Who waits forever anyway?




DISC 2

1. EVIL THAT MEN DO

Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter,
her eyes red with the slaughter of innocence
But will pray for her.
I will call her name out loud.
I would bleed for her.
If only I could see her now.

Living on a razors edge.
Balancing on a ledge.
Living on a razors edge, yeah
Balancing on a ledge, yeah

Balancing on a ledge, yeah
Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

Circle of fire my baptism of joy at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me,
But I will pray for you.
And some day I may return.
Don't you cry for me,
Beyond is where I learn.

Living on a razors edge.
Balancing on a ledge.
Living on a razors edge
you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
yeah

Living on a razors edge.
Balancing on a ledge.
Living on a razors edge
you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil
The evil
The evil
The evil that men do
The evil
The evil
The evil that men do
yeah, yeah!




2. GLORIFYING MEANS

-Grunts-
Fantasies, misery came together
in the world of guilt and pain
A neverending game
Do not reject me, I was better of without
But in my agonized existence I needed to be free

-Grunts-
Free my mind, free my soul
I do not need to feel no more
Feel no more, I'm better off this way
Alone, far from the past and its brutal face
I still feel the disgust and pain
Let me be free

-Chorus-
This is my life today, this is the way it went out of control
I cannot do without these glorifying means, my remedy
These amazing illusions, fantasies

-Grunts-
Fanatsy, not for me, like another mirror of reality
Another point of view
Don't disbelieve me, I really tried to do without
But with sadness as a companion it's hard to do
Without the seduction, to become someone I'm not
But in this beautiful deception I'll overcome the night
Another day, another week, I'll overcome time

-Choir-
Colors seem to flow, they seem to come alive
While the sound of life is stronger than before
It's more than a dream, this is so real
I swim and fly, I never feel more than I need, than I fear
I roam, I cry, I am paralyzed
I can fight the world!
The sense of time is not important now
Just like the past, just like right now
There's no illusion that this is for real!

-Grunts-
Observe me, control me
Tell me what is best, what's good
Tell me how it worked for you
Tell me how to find myself, find resepct, find the strength
Facing life so pure and clean, mean and hard
All these words, can't cure nor heal

-Plays Chorus-




3. MY CHOICE

Is it not the choosing that makes the life we live so intricate?
Are the options we have too endless to control?
Can we oversee the offers and their demands and their goals?
Can we oversee our own needs if we do not know
What it is we really want?
Our minds, instead of our hearts
What we feel confuses our thoughts
Security, an ancient quest
Standing alone, the ultimate test
Still we reach for warmth in the materialized luxuries in life
The times have changed but we are stille the same
Another choice ‘cause we still don't know
Chorus
Let me see where I belong
Let me be a little part of it
Can I choose my way in life?
Can I dream, can I feel, could I know my choice?
A choice without the illusion that luck is for sale
‘cause I have all that money can buy
Choir:
A choice means freedom
And endless options
Can we survey that?
Can freedom be controlled?
The option's bitter
It leaves a part of you behind the borders of your choice
Chorus
Let me see where I belong
Let me be a little part of it
Can I choose my way in life?
Can I dream, can I feel, could I know my choice?
Let me see where I belong
Let me be a little part of it
Can I choose my way in life?
Can I dream, can I feel, could I know my choice?




4. BENEATH

Bewildered by silence
Stuck by its questions and lucid ways to make us aware
I did not know how cruel that could be

That so many cases will never be solved
That so many stories will never be told
I did not know how cruel that could be

Fighting a war that rages inside
The world can't see the hate that burns in there
How can we face what lies beneath,
If we just fear and don't fight back?

How many questions left unanswered?
How many tears and inner strength shall we need?
How any times can we encounter this again and again?

How many things exist that blind us?
How many forms of brutal violence can we see?
How many images of pain will make us numb

So hard, so cruel, we fail to see, we fail to feel?
So afraid, even without thecourage of despair?

Fighting a war that rages inside
The world can't see the hate that burns in there
How can we face what lies beneath,
If we just fear and don't fight back?

Afraid of ourselves, arfaid to stand up
I did not know how cruel that could be
We failed to see, we failed to feel
Still afraid, what if you love someone?

What if this happened to your loved ones?
What would you do if you were there at that time?
What makes you act like nothing happened?
Nothing's wrong, you're doing fine?

What makes you think you are immune to this?
What drove us so far to the edge of tolerance?
If judging and accusing is so easy, then why
Why still?

Fighting a war that rages inside
The world can't see the hate that burns in there
How can we face what lies beneath,
If we just fear and don't fight back?




5. DIGITAL DECEIT

Come enter, here's my world
Closed off from pain and cold
Come enter, come inside
A secret place of light
'Cause in this world I'm rid of you, you can't get through

So here I am and I'm beautiful
and all my friends would say the same
So here I am; and you cannot deny that I am someone you'd embrace
I am the queen; I'm pure and loved by everyone

Come enter, here's my code
Through the world wide wire you'll know me
The queen of her own world
My story; meet my life

So now you see, there is another me
Not someone insecure and strange
My father's will in here, it doesn't mean a thing
And I don't fear his violent rage

I am the queen; you know I'm loved by everyone

Come enter, here's my code
Through the world wide wire you'll know
The queen of her own world

Stop dreaming and wake up
Your silly world is not what's real
This world of fake friends
and computers - digital deceit

This cyber wall (this cyber wall)
is built to break out or hold
The choice is yours (the choice is yours),
will you dream or see what's real?

Oh...no, no more
Just let me be alone with myself
These conflicting thoughts increase my doubts

I am the queen, I must be loved
This so-called 'wall' is there to protect
a life controlled by keys, closed off from pain and cold

Digital deceit...
digital, digital, digital...




6. TWO SIDES

Somehow everything's getting worse
My fight is just one of their struggles
And have I ssen it all Oh no,now their hate's reaching the top
And guess who's to blame,and guess who's responsible

If pain is our line,
The one that connects us in life,should we hold on

I only feel their shame when I'm near
Life should be more than this,should be warmer than this
Cause there's more grief and pain,oh yes
There is more than what I caused,
things beyond me
And their eyes reflect things they'll never say out loud

If pain is our line,
The one that connects us in life,should we hold on

Our dreams,ambitions and passion
Our plans for the future,our combined goals
A life with status,respect and adoration
our wishes and hope destroyed at once
Without those things to connect us,
a life together is even worse than alone
we all need two sides of the story

Two sides,one can become a reflection
of the truth,a lie
You'll be judging soon
Two sides,they both have their emotions,opinions and thoughts
on who's to blame on reality,can you tell

If pain is our line
The one that connects us in lief,should we hold on




7. SINS OF IDEALISM

(Child) Hello father, hello mother;
there is so much I don't get
Please don't be mad at me; I will try harder,
I'll really do the best I can
(Mother) That's not enough
You're the cause of my domestic captivity

(Child) And I will close my eyes and fantasize
of a world that's not so cold
(Mother) That's how it will be
Suffer the causes of my personal misery
I've sacrificed my beauty,
my freedom, my dreams,
the independent me

(Child) Hello father, hello mother;
Don't blame me for things I didn't do
Yes, I will go now and I'll be silent;
please stop your screaming, and love me
(Mother) That's all you can see
Speak of love while you've ruined
what's meant to be

(Child) And then I'll close my eyes
to fantasize of a world
Where I can be free
And free to be

(Contemplative) Sinner or righteous,
the line is so thin
Can you condemn it
Can you be the one to judge it all
Or accuse yourself if the sentence is your life?

(Child) Hello father, hello mother;
forgive me for standing in your way
I just wanted someone who'd hold me and listen,
are these illusions, are they
(Mother) Only fantasies?
Imagine how my life could have been
I would still have my beauty,
my freedom, my dreams,
the independent me

(Contemplative) Our course in life is a path we must take alone
No one can choose what to do,
only you, so the sins we commit are the struggles within
There is no judge to decide what is right, what is wrong

Tell me, can you live in freedom
knowing that your choice hurt someone

(Father) Once we had a life and now we have you
The saviour of love is a catastrophe
I'll leave you both if I must give up my dreams
My chances aren't here with you
I won't be chained because of this

The sins of all, the sinner in me
I follow my dreams, you call it blasphemy
If my ideals are sins
To me they are the strength within
Then I shall stay a sinner

(Child) I can be free
And free to be

(Contemplative) Sinner or righteous,
the line is so thin
Can you condemn it
Can you be the one to judge it all
Or accuse yourself if the sentence is your life?




8. ECCENTRIC

What do they see when they look at me?
Who are they to judge me
If they never spoke with me?
Never looked without laughing
Never tried to see, see me

I can't believe that it is only me
The person to hate,
The only left out
I can't believe how they can be so mean
If they could feel the brutal stings of their words,
And the bitter cold when they laugh

Once more I'm running
Running away, I must hide
Can't take anymore
A fight to free me from an endless struggle with life
Running, tell me how far should I go
If they're all the same
This fight...
I am fighting my way through

I don't really want to be like them
The way they behave,
The way that they live
I don't really need someone
No people like that,
But someone in a world with warmth and respect
A world without the feeling

I must be running
Running away, I must hide
Can't take anymore
A fight to free me from an endless struggle with life
Running, tell me how far should I go
If they're all the same
This fight...
I am fighting my way through




9. LIFE'S VORTEX

My mind is under an attack,
although no one sees
My past is pounding in the back of my memories
It's always there to poison my mind with all I do
Feelings I know so well seem to come back
as if nothing's ever changed

Fear was one of the reasons to crawl away into a world I lost
I know the rules,I play the game
but somehow it always stays the same
In spite of my will,in spite of my hope,in spite of it all

So for those who believe in this life,
spand right on this circle-must be round
Every turn has its vortex,you'll drown if nobody warns you
and shows you another circle of life

Nothing will change,
nothing is done for the victim I am forced to remain
Cause these days make you feel,and you are,on your own

Study,work hard,marry,reproduce and become the perfect model
Can you stand the test of time if life is a vicious circle
without the mirror of another path

So for those who believe in this life
stand right on the circle-must be round
Every turn has its vortex,you'll drown if nobody warns you
and shows you another circle of life




10. BLIND PAIN

(Child) Everything keeps getting worse
The terror at home, the dread at school
I mustn't count on much support,
I'm still locked out; it's up to me,
how to face the teasing and the pain
Hate, one thing we have in common
Play your game

Beat me, hurt me
A physical release from mental pain
Don't make me explode in your way

(Contemplative) This is a chain of torture,
a line of pain, no other way to show how you feel
This is the rebel in her, the torment from him,
the absence of help, the mother's care

(Child) Rage, it burns all around us
Blind pain
So abuse is only weakness
It feels more like a cry of distress, an act of incapacity
Feel the threat
Feel the oppressed ambience of having no place to go,
no one who'll take care of my salvation

(Contemplative) This is a chain of torture,
a line of pain, no other way to show how you feel
This is the rebel in her, the torment from him,
the absence of help, the mother's care

(Child) Here comes the final episode
of terror and pain, abuse and hope
Here comes the fight between us all
A fight between a love long gone
I'm to blame, but it's their own blind pain




11. BEING EVERYONE

Who am I at night when my eyes are closed tight?
Who am I and where when I see far beyond?
Every border, every dream, every hidden memory
Every nightmare, truth or dare
Who do I see

Now!
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we just being everyone?

Where am I?
Tell me, would you go?
I should stay
Where am I, where am I?
And where should I go tonight?
Every night a different thing,
Every time you're in a different dream
Am I me there, what am I?
Who will I be

Now!
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we just being everyone?
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we being everyone?

I cry, I fall
I love, I hate
I know many, though no face ever stays
I breathe, I fly
I kill, I die
Though there's nothing that I know
No-one can recall where I have been or who I was

Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we being everyone?

Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we just being everyone?
Look at me,
Tell me what you see
Are we being everyone?




12. FACE YOUR DEMONS

Jack in a box and here I am
You´re favourite mirror and your only honest reflection and your
guide
I am you deepest fear, the one you´ll always hear
I am the devil in disguise, I am your dream

I am the sneaky connection to your most devilish reflection
The scary imagination of the real you

I represent what you deny
You´re never scared so why are you running away
from the temptation of my words
Oh you don´t know what I could do for you
Or I could put you through...
And you don´t really understand that only fear leads this game

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I´m the one who´ll tell terrifying, scary, dreadful tales

You´d better listen
That´s some free advice
So what scares you the most
Let me know, be a good host
I want to tell you how your fear looks and how to play this game

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I´m the one who´ll tell terrifying, scary, dreadful tales

War is breaking loose, it cannot be stopped
Cars are racing by and you´re getting crushed
Friends are dying slow with a lot of pain
You just fear it all

Bleeding from a wound that you cannot see
And you´re seeing things that can never be
God is not made up and he wants revenge
You just fear it all
Fear
You just fear, you can only fear
Face your demons

So did you know that all your memories
Color all you´ll ever be in a dark and misty cloud that I am
floating on
I´m still the voice that speaks inside your head
The demon under your bed
I´m the one who haunts your soul with devlish lust to
fright

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I´m the one who´ll tell terrifying tales

Face your demons
Hear that inner voice
It calls, it cries for you
Just listen well
I´m the one who´ll tell terrifying, scary, dreadful tales




13. TASTE THE DAY

If you don't see
If you forget what you have
Not just what you can get
If you cannot embrace it, you will lose what gives you strength

Holding on to life
Fortune lies within

You can never love if you are not in love with life itself
If you cannot embrace that you will never find true strength

Holding on to love
Passion within!

Oh, feel the day
Can you remagine yourself?
Oh, taste the day
Will you remagine your life?

Can you relish in your luck, can you?
Or overcome your pain?
Can you be happy?

Oh, feel the day
Can you remagine yourself?
Oh, taste the day
Will you remagine your life?




14. BOUNDARIES ARE OPEN

After Forever
Boundaries are open

I see clearly all my dreams
I know chance is always near
Make my own reality
Just imagine!

Boundaries are open

'Cause you cannot control this
My reality differs from yours
The power of imagination is strong
So we only try to imagine

Will the force be so strong it will control one's mind?
Will this power delude or widen the madness that renders blind?
So the frontiers of our conceit
Then will become indistinct to vanish in thin air

Boundaries are open
But don't believe it's real!

So does faith have roots in imagination?
Who is right in the grim and endless fight for revelation?
I cannot tell what's right or wrong
For we all dwell in an imaginary borderland

Boundaries are open
But don't believe it's real

Boundaries are open
But don't believe it's real




15. COME

Come join your inner wonderland
A place of all you don´t understand
Come join this labyrinth deep within
The place of all miracles of your mind

Come join the magic, the power that you've create
Come be aware it´s an illusion you have made

Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night

You´ve passed the gates now, the door to inner wonderland
you´ve passed the gates made to create the borders of your dream

Come enter further, do you dare?
Come face the hell you daily bear
Come pass the borders of what´s real
Come touch and see and feel

Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night
Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night

[Come, Join, Enter]

Come join this flow
Come join us, all here within your mind
Come join the magic, your body is weightless
You roam and you are anyone you can be
Come join this flow
Come join us all, here beyond your mind

As you enter this inner flow, your second part begins
And while the night enbraces you, you deal with the day

Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night
Come join the flow that guides you through a restless mind
Come join the flow that moves the night




16. ATTENDANCE

Beauty and destruction
Pride and honour
Freedom, elimmination
Speek out loud, Hide

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we'll never learn

Blindness and silence
No one dares
Action and reprisal
Raise your voice, die

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we'll never learn

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we never will

Oh how will the earth be; seen for the first time?
Oh how will the earth feel; Touched for the first time?

Entwine and Iconize
Passion ignites
Suspicion and betrayal
the voice of violence speaks again

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we'll never learn

Now enter, here is our dreamworld
View the splendid sights
You can always tell we never learned, we never will




17. LIVE & LEARN

I'll be climbing another high mountain
I will climb and climb to see what lies far beyond all my restrictions
A glimpse of a better me

I'll be diving another deep ocean
I will dive and dive to reach for what lies beyond my restrictions
A deeper me

Chorus:
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden

I'll be running another great distance
I will run and run to know what lies far beyond all my restrictions
To run into a faster me

I'll be loving another great challenge
I will love and love to feel what lies deep within my inner chambers
Where's the key!?

Chorus:
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden

Keep moving on
Live and learn, the future lies open
Keep going strong
Search for the key, to open the next door

Now don't let words hold you back from dreaming
The future is yours and you're brave enough to choose your path
And to embrace all that comes to you
All you can bear
Hidden by dreams, hidden: So it seems
The challenge your fear
The courage is here, unlock!

Chorus:
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden
I know many doors are waiting for keys in life
Waiting for courage to learn what's kept hidden




18. STRONG

I see your pain I see it grow
slowly inside you
You cannot control it
The hurting's ruthless, you cannot win

I see every smile you fake
Strong emotion, strong devotion to ignore the pain
To stand strong

Day after day, to be there for us, always
To pretend there's nothing wrong
How you feel or how it feels
No words describe it
Your body feels like a stranger
We cannot stop it, we cannot win

I see every smile you fake
Strong emotion, strong devotion to ignore the pain
To stand strong

I see every smile you fake
Strong emotion, strong devotion to ignore the pain
to stand strong

Every painful day, I'll be there for you, always
And together we will stand strong
