02. Eternal Damnation
Living in fear and in hate of the world
Staying in the darkness despising himself
This man with no shadow, seeking new life
Trying to find a way to survive
Tired of being alone all the time
He watches the people who pass in the night
With no mirror reflection, just a body
That lost its soul in the past
Eternal damnation, no freedom of life
Watching the races dissolving through time
He wants to be free and connect with his soul
To climb out of death's, dark icy hole
One night as he watches from the shadows again
A woman in white has captured his stare
His eyes start to tingle, as he's frozen
And cannot move anywhere
He follows her silently back to her house
Stops at the gate and watches from outside
He waits for the moment to go near her
And give her the kiss of new life
Eternal damnation, no freedom of life
Watching the races dissolving through time
He wants to be free and connect with his soul
To climb out of death's dark icy hole
This coming night, the time is right for him
He looks and kneels before his virgin queen
The maiden screams in terror
As blood has filled her eyes
Just then the door brakes open
A man stands there in fright
"What are you doing to my bride?
You creature of the night"
"I am here to take what's rightfully mine"
"You stand no chance, you don't have the right!"
"Then I stand before you... - ready to die!"
Eternal damnation, no freedom of life
Watching the races dissolving through time
He wants to be free and connect with his soul
To climb out of deaths, Dark icy hole

03. Exile
As silence grows inside my mind
I need my wings to open wide
I want to sit here be alone
I watch the sunset as it goes
Memories are inside me now
To stars of destiny I shall bow
The light of planets that is fading
Here as fallen we are raging
Then we shall stay here now my lord
And let the punishment unfold
To thee I look up feeling shame
My eyes are blinded sealed in pain.. Exile
I want to see your eras changing
Feel the summoned eternal winds
The winter is cold and never ending
And we stay frozen by our sins
So we remain here now my lord
Until our hands fall like the leaves
Common mortals, we have changed to
Without a spirit or our wings
Then we shall stay here now my lord
And let the punishment unfold
To thee I look up feeling shame
My eyes are blinded sealed in pain.. Exile
I need time to pass so I’ll stay here
Forever locked inside my fear
With no beginning and without an end
Let the silence be my friend
Who will cover up our stream of tears?
In this exile of pain and fear
When will the time be right and come?
To raise us high above the sun
Do you hear our screams of agony?
Neglectful you tear us apart
To whom shall we entrust our tragedy?
Here as fallen we depart…

04. For I Have Sinned
I would not have come, I did not approve
But now I feel it's time
A long time since I've last confessed
My horrors deep inside
I fear I've killed a thousand men
A thousand wasted lives
And now I have a lust for blood
That burns inside my mind
Forgive me father, for I have sinned
And guilty is what I plead
I know I'm lost and damned for life,
My deeds are now revealed
I can't turn back, the road is long
Too long for me to try
For I have sinned and sin I will
Deep down the well of life
At war, they say, you cannot not fail!
You have to kill or die,
But deep inside I always knew
I craved to take a life
A wrongful deed, a tiresome lust
A feeling un-described
That second just before they die
The terror in their eyes
Forgive me father, for I have sinned
And guilty is what I plead
I know I'm lost and damned for life,
My deeds are now revealed
I can't turn back, the road is long
Too long for me to try
For I have sinned and sin I will
Deep down the well of life
I'm dancing with fate, with death on my side
Your blood is what I crave
An undying sin, my evil within
Father, I cannot be saved.
Forgive me father, for I have sinned
And guilty is what I plead
I know I'm lost and damned for life,
My deeds are now revealed
I can't turn back, the road is long
Too long for me to try
For I have sinned and sin I will
Deep down the well of life

05. Hold My Hand
I close my eyes and dream of what we had
An endless love that lived through good and bad
We could surpass the stars, a real life's dream
You were the source of life that drove the blood in me
A twist of fate took place and one disheartened day
I blinked my eyes and turned and you just ran away
I begged and cried for you to stay,
Your words were poison in my veins
Hold my hand you said to me
Follow me and you will see
Love is what we'll have forever
Stay with me and we'll endeavor
A broken soul betrayed, lost, dissolving
I feel my world is turning upside down
Your voice was full of passion, deceit and lies
That shattered my heart and turned out the lights
I can't seem to remember what love is
A tear of joy, or of sadness
I try to imagine you and me
But all I seem to do is want to cry
Hold my hand you said to me
Follow me and you will see
Love is what we'll have forever
Stay with me and we'll endeavor
Where are you? Now I'm calling you
I need you now the most!
Where's this love I'm calling to?
She's left me just a ghost...
Hold my hand you said to me
Follow me and you will see
Love is what we'll have forever
Stay with me and we'll endeavor

06. Goodbye
With the crack of dawn, the bells will ring
And there we'll say goodbye,
We meet again my good old friend
For one discreet last time
You lie in peace, with no soul within
My silent heart remains
And now I have to wander life
In misery and pain
Tears fill my eyes as I look upon your deserted body
Fears fill my mind as I know you won't be there beside me
But someday I believe that we'll meet again, my friend
So for now, I'll just say goodbye
So for now, I'll just say goodbye
In fear I reach for your soulless eyes
Your hand is cold - no lie, you've died
Pretending not is so damn cruel
A darkened soul, my fear is fueled
My life is shattered, descending started
As horror takes my every inch
So until we meet again my friend
In another life another end
Tears fill my eyes as I look upon your deserted body
Fears fill my mind as I know you won't be there beside me
But someday I believe that we'll meet again, my friend
So for now, I'll just say goodbye
So for now, I'll just say goodbye
"Listen to me, my good old friend
As I can see you now down there
Things are not as what they say
I cannot tell you can't explain
I must just ask for one more thing
Don't cry for me, my dying wish
One thing is for sure, we'll meet again
In another life another end"
Tears fill my eyes as I look upon your deserted body
Fears fill my mind as I know you won't be there beside me
But someday I believe that we'll meet again, my friend
So for now, I'll just say goodbye
So for now, I'll just say goodbye

07. A Secret Once Forgotten
High above the creaky staircase
Hangs the painting on the wall
In a house, long forgotten
The painting's left to rot alone
A lake so peaceful in the night time
The moon's reflection shining bright
A creeping shadow from the darkness
Approaches the light
The moon's reflection starts to whither
From the wind that comes to life
A lightning flash, distant thunder
There she strolls, wanting to die...
This painting tells a story,
A tragic death in the past
No one knows when it happened,
Or how it came to pass
Every time the clock strikes midnight,
The painting glows alive
The secret that was once forgotten,
Has come to show up in this light
The woman walks into the water,
Slowly sinking into the depths
There she stays beneath the surface
No return, her mind is set
The painting then begins to darken
The wind slowly starts to calm down
The water calms, a mournful sadness
A vanished moon, the painting stands
The secret once that was forgotten
Is not her death, but why she drowned
A failing marriage, a loved one's passing
Or a madness... ending now
This painting tells a story,
A tragic death in the past
No one knows when it happened,
Or how it came to pass
Every time the clock strikes midnight,
The painting glows alive
The secret once that was forgotten,
Has come to show up in this light

08. Can You Hear Me
Lost in a world of darkness,
Where light is just a memory
Damned into eternal blackness
Alone I know, I won't be free
So I look above and I scream
With all the strength that's left in me
Can you hear me? I'm sitting in the corner of my life
Can you see me? Shine a little light
Can you hear me? I'm sitting in the corner of my life
Can you see me? Shine a little light
Trapped in a cage of sorrow
Regrets are all that cover me
Spun in a web of silence
I can't hear the voice that comes from me
So I close my eyes and I dream
Reality is lost it seems
Can you hear me? I'm sitting in the corner of my life
Can you see me? Shine a little light
Can you hear me? I'm sitting in the corner of my life
Can you see me? Shine a little light
Where am I what have I done
To deserve all this
I try to think but my mind seems blank
I'm stuck alone in a bliss...
Can you hear me? I'm sitting in the corner of my life
Can you see me? Shine a little light
Can you hear me? I'm sitting in the corner of my life
Can you see me? Shine a little light

09. My Winter Sun
I searched for her, long and hard
In every corner I could find
In every street, in every bar
But lost she was a fallen star
I thought I'd stop, a hopeless man
I turned my head and there she was
Lying cold a soulless life
Her wrists were slashed from side to side
A year has passed since that dreadful night
A nightmare screaming in my mind
It seems unreal, like never done
I've lost my love, alone, ashamed,
Every night she visits me, sadly
She comes to me, with tears in her eyes
She lies by me, and whispers "I love you"
But by morning she's nowhere to be found
I wake up dazed and so confused
Did I just dream or was it you?
I don't believe it was not true
Am I going mad? What must I do?
Trapped in a world of make believe
I think that nothing's what it seems
My winter sun, I know you died
I saw you there with my own eyes
A broken puzzle in my mind
I'm trying to find these missing parts
Trying to melt, dissolve away
That frozen picture, cursed to stay
Every night she visits me, sadly
She comes to me, with tears in her eyes
She lies by me, and whispers "I love you"
But by morning she's nowhere to be found
Last night, an eerie scene took place
She stood so cold an icy face
Aghast inside, a raging fear into my eyes
She bluntly peered
I heard her voice inside my head
"My love, don't cry - your eyes don't lie
My spirit lives forever on, inside your heart
You keep me strong"
Every night she visits me, sadly
She comes to me, with tears in her eyes
She lies by me, and whispers "I love you"
But by morning she's nowhere to be found
But by morning she's nowhere to be found

10. Suicide Note
I rise up from the ashes completely torn apart
I'm left to dry the tears from my heart
Forgiven, forgotten, it sounds the same to me
As fate has done its work eventually
An overbearing darkness creeps deep into my soul
I'm forced to play another man's role
Lying and pretending I try to hide myself
As no one has seen beneath this shell
My shell
I write this letter, a poem from my heart
These words you read are sealed with my blood
So if you're reading this, my friend - whoever you are
Know I've gone away, away afar
I write this letter, a poem from my heart
These words you read are sealed with my blood
So if you're reading this, my friend - whoever you are
Know I've gone away, away afar
And this suicide note I leave behind
And this suicide note I leave behind
