Lyrics

1. FIFTEEN YEARS

I was just a young boy
When that man came to this town
We got no sign or warning
It was their final morning

The wind was howling murder
When he was calling out their names
The ones that he had come for
To fill their fate

And the scars on his face
Made us all look away
As his eyes blazed with rage
Seeking vengeance for

Fifteen years
Convicted, locked away
They'd forgotten their fears
He was gone away forever
Trial of rage
The years were washed away
With the blood of the same
Guilty who gave out his name

Did they hear their destiny calling
Did they dream the hammer fall
Too scared to run away
To live another day

Were the shadows in the corners
Whispering his name
Were they dreaming of forgiveness
Til it was too late

And the scars on his face
Made us all look away
As his eyes blazed with rage
Seeking vengeance for

Oh, it was a trial of rage
Yeah, and they were all guilty

He buried them in flames
Guilty who gave out his name
Spitting on their grave
Guilty who gave out his name




2. SUPERSTITION

Step right into a new world
Don't be afraid
Cast away the chains of reason
Don't hesitate

It's all here and now
Don't wait 'til tomorrow

Believe these words
And make your dreams come true
Put your faith in magic
I'll cast a spell on you

It's all here and now
Don't wait 'til tomorrow

You can be forever young
Make your wish it'll all be yours tomorrow
I will make your worries gone
Just call me and name your desire
Superstition

Hand me your dreams
And I will bring them alive
I'll turn your world around
In a blink of an eye

It's all here and now
Don't wait 'til tomorrow

Name your hearts desire
It's granted
I'm the master of illusion
Superstition




3. HORIZON

Sailing trough the storming waters
We're drifting on the open sea
No-one can tell our destination
Or time left for you and me
You and me

Somewhere beyond the dark horizon
Is said to lie a land of dreams
Maybe we'll reach that shore tomorrow
Maybe it's not for us to see

Take your time
It's not now or never
We can't fly beyond the horizon
We spend our lives
Sailing on forever
We can't fly beyond horizon

Beyond the horizon... (3x)
Maybe our life is just a dream...

As we're dreaming of tomorrow
And the world to fill our dreams
Through tears of joy and sorrow
To see all there is to see

Beyond the horizon... (3x)
We can't fly, oh no

You and me
Sailing on forever
To eternity




4. DREAMWORLD

You're drifting to a dream
Lost in the frozen night
Shivering as the wolves start howling

Out of place, out of time
Watch the shadows come alive
Echoes in the wind, bells tolling

I'm the angel fly with me
Leap into eternity
Dreamworld, dreamworld is calling
Close your eyes and ride the night
Let the darkness fill with light
Dreamworld, dreamworld
You're falling down...

Beyond all fantasies
Your memories flashing by
Don't know if you're awaken or dreaming

See the old turning into young
The dead come back to life
Laughing at all you believe in

Take my hand I'll lead the way
Through fire and ice to light of day
Dreamworld, dreamworld
You're falling down...
Down down...




5. FOLLOW DOWN THAT RIVER

They're pulling your harness
Saying that you're gone too far
No-one guiding your footsteps
No-one there to catch your fall

They say you're about to bring them shame
What does it matter to you
It's too much yet not enough
Safe warm but sleeping rough

It's the ache in your heart
The burn in your soul
The end of the rainbow,
The bucket of gold
Follow down that river
Follow down that river
Of your heart

You gotta take that first step
You gotta leave it all behind
Not bound to end like them
Watching as the ships sail by

They say your soul'll be burned in flames
Well, does it matter to you
It's too much yet not enough
Got it safe but you want it tough

Get out of that road
Sleep under the stars
And to find out who you are
Follow down that river
Follow down that river
Of your heart

Follow it down

It's too much yet not enough
You got it safe but you want it tough

Get out of that road
Sleep under the stars
And to find out who you are
Follow down that river
Follow down that river
Of your heart (4x)
Follow down




6. STRANGER

Hear, I've come to you my friend
With a burdened heart, of grief and pain
Here, your road has come to end
And I must walk away

I see, you've come the evil kind
Not the boy you once were
All worlds ago
Oh, somewhere along the line
Your soul went blind
Now you can't see me like I see you

Long gone are those days,
When we were young, we were brothers
We laughed, we fought, we cried
And now it's killing me
Like it's killing you
The stranger in your heart

I know I looked the other way
As you stepped across that line
From childish to evil
You've only got yourself to blame
But I can't help the tears
When you can't see me like I see you

If I had one wish
If I had that power
I'd turn back the tides of time
But it's killing me
Like it's killing you
The stranger in your heart
In your heart

And my only sin was to love you like a brother
You stole, you killed, you lied
Now it's killing me
Like it's killing you
The stranger in your heart

You once had your dreams
But they're all gone forever
Can't turn back the tides of time
And it's killing me
Like it's killing you
The stranger in your heart
In your heart

The stranger (3x)
The stranger in your heart...
In your heart
The stranger in your heart...




7. SAILS

Staring into darkness
Gazing through blood red eyes
At the dark horizon
Praying for the wind to rise

The Captain's born a gambler
To defy his destiny
But now he's standing stranded
With nothing left but will to live

As his ship is scattered on the shore
His fortune washed away
Behind those all-seen eyes he knows
He's about to die in vain

Go find the secrets of the world
Beyond the raging oceans
Sail past the point of no return
The point of no return

Will he try to drift away
When he knows his time's at hand
To be heaved back ashore
To rags and bones in burning sand

Go find the secrets of the world
Beyond the raging oceans
Sail past the point of no return
Trusting the wind to never turn

Go find the secrets of the world
Riding the winds of glory
Sail past the point of no return
The point of no return

As his ship is scattered on the shore
His fortune washed away
Envying his luck-charmed life
The devils of winds cursed his sails

The point of no return...




8. MARCHING TO WAR

Rolling dice of fate
Like a thousand times before
The rulers play their games
And the young men march to war

They're righteous in their minds
Justified to kill
Believing to serve their god
Being servants to his will

The sacred soldiers

No time to give it thought
No need to understand
When ones who pull the strings
Place weapons in their hands

Never shed a tear
For those about to die
For victory in war
Any given price is right

The sacred soldiers
March into war

Sheltered by guardian angels
The sons of holy cause
Against all evil strangers
Marching to war
Like men of thousand ages
The final curtain falls
Against all evil strangers
Marching to war

Marching to... marching to... marching to war




9. TWILIGHT SYMPHONY

I can feel the invitation
Silent whispers softly calling me
Words between the lines that
Only a child wouldn't know

I fear the fascination
That is trying to get a hold of me
Beneath the surface lies the danger
Of losing my soul

Again you come to me
Just like a dirty dream
And I fall into a burning fever

You got a mission for me
Temptation I feel I'm falling

Raise your hands and reach the sky
Lean back and close your eyes
Dance to the twilight symphony
Fulfill your fantasies
And live your secret dreams
Dance to the twilight symphony

I'm losing destination
My hands are tied while yours are working me
Twisting my mind, burning, blinking my eyes
'Til I can't see

Are you the devil calling?
Oh God, I think I'm falling

Raise your hands and reach the sky
Oh, reach the skies and dance...
Twilight symphony
Fulfill your fantasies
Oh, fulfill your fantasies and dance
Twilight symphony
Raise your hands and reach the sky
Oh, reach the sky and dance to the
Twilight symphony
Fulfill your fantasies
Let it by, let it go
'Cause I know
Twilight symphony




10. GONE

I see you in my dreams
I can't escape the sore memories
I wonder how I'll ever move on
When you're gone

I'm not a drifter anymore
I've done that road, had enough, seen it all
I wonder how my heart will move on
When you're gone
When our love is gone

If love can't live eternally
A million years, a thousand centuries
Why do our foolish hearts
Swear to love forever
Why do we take that road
If we can't stay on it together

Is it only make believe
Is it only broken hearts and empty dreams
I wonder how my hear will move on
When you're gone
When our love is gone

When our love is gone
How can our hearts move on
When our love is gone

When our love is gone
How can our hearts move on
When our love is gone
