01. CUNNING LULLABIES
Legends tells of burning flames
Of Children’s screams and fires untamed
And when the smoke had cleared away
These walls had any tales engraves
Endless Whispers fill my mind
As I made a step inside
From the shadows they appear
Turning into nightmares
They would twist inside my head
And yield me to my fears
Ashes scattered faces angered watching me
As the darkness took my thoughts and
Blinded me
I turned and ran towards the door
But felt a chill run through my bones
The darkness swept, it captured me
Its icy grip won’t set me free
Pain and terror filled my soul
I’ve been trapped it’s been so long
From the shadows they appear
Turning into nightmares
They would twist inside my head
And yield me to my fears
Ashes scattered faces angered watching me
As the darkness took my thoughts and
Blinded me
Orphan children, cursed and angered
In the blackness needed comfort
Cunning lullabies I sang them as I crept
Out from the darkness
From the shadows they appear
Turning into nightmares
They would twist inside my head
And yield me to my fears
Ashes scattered faces angered watching me
As the darkness took my thoughts and
Blinded me

02. PAPER IS BLANK
With pencil in hand a blank paper stands
In front.
Awhile world awaits me, whatever that
Comes to mind
I ran to the lake, she sat there but hid
Her face
I reached out to touch her but she
Vanished without a trace.
I wish I could see your face in the dream
The more that I try my colors will dry.
Your face disappears like it has through
The years
And all that I have is a paper that’s blank
I re-live my dreams, but nothing appears
It seems
Why can’t I remember? Why does this
Torment me?
From nightfall to dawn, sleepless for
You i call
Reveal your face to me, ’Tis you that I
Wish to draw
I wish I could see your face in the dream
The more that I try my colors will dry.
Your face disappears like it has through
The years
And all that I have is a paper that’s blank
You demon, you witch, reveal your face
To me
I cannot stand this thing I will die!
Madness or hate or love you see
Through me
Only a glimpse I beg tonight
I wish I could see your face in the dream
The more that I try my colors will dry.
Your face disappears like it has through
The years
And all that I have is a paper that’s blank
The paper is
Why can’t I touch you?
Shattered dreams
This madness is driving me insane!
My canvas is blank

03. UNTO THE DARKNESS
For too long i waited for a bride to
Walk the ages.
And then when I had found her you just
Burned her to the ground.
I swore revenge in madness
For this would ease my sadness
You took the one I longed for
Mercy died without a sound
I will take what you took from me
I will laugh as now you will scream
Unto the darkness I send thee
All your women alive
You will feel what I felt all this time
My anger controls me
Your future now begs
Unto the darkness I send thee tonight
All that i could hear were their cries
Inside my ears
I judge thee to damnation, no remorse
You die tonight
I smiled and then I tore through their
Flesh with all my claws
I then tasted their blood as slowly death
Would creep inside
Not one will survive
Your fates I decide
Unto the darkness I send thee
All your women alive
You will feel what i felt all this time
My anger controls me
Your future now begs
Unto the darkness I send thee tonight
You will suffer for my pain!
Endless darkness now awaits!
Worthless cries have no effect
My black heart was always dead.
Unto the darkness i send thee
All your women alive
You will feel what i felt all this time
My anger controls me
Your future now begs
Unto the darkness I send thee tonight

04. NOT WITHOUT A FIGHT
Here i hide in purpose
With aim to bring you down
For i have planned to bury you
6 feet into the ground
Outside these walls you hunt me
But this will be no more
As i become the hunter until the
Day I’m gone
I watched you burn our houses
I saw you kill my friends
I cried as you were torturing our
Women to their end
Take my life, take it all
But you’ll never take my soul
No more pain, it’s my right
I will not go down without a fight
One by one I crush you
From mists I have appeared
I have become a nightmare
Your greatest deadly fear
You thought that we are weaker
Your strength in numbers lay
Our strength i not a number;
Our hearts show us the way
You set a bounty on me
“The most wanted man alive”
You’d better raise that number or you’ll
Never get the prize
Take my life, take it all
But you’ll never take my soul
No more pain, it’s my right
I will not go down without a fight
For months now I have fought you
I’ve killed a thousand men
But betrayal has deceived me
A traitor from my own land
You finally had found me
“Surrender” you said then
“Why don’t you come and take me
Or are you still afraid?”
Take my life, take it all
But you’ll never take my soul
No more pain, it’s my right
I will not go down without a fight

05. BLEEDING HEART
11 years ago today
I lost her to the sea
And every day that passes by
I feel I’ve lost a part of me
Every year, the day before
I feel the ocean breeze
And as the pain begins to sink
It brings me to my knees
I find a stick and carve my pain
Into the sand I write
A message from my heart that aches
That cannot see the light
Ever since the day you died
I cruse the ground I walk
I wish that I could take your place
As this would sooth my soul
The tears that I have shed for you
Will never be enough
And my eternal suffering
Can’t stop my bleeding heart
I break the stick and throw it far
Into the wet abyss
And hope that it will bring it back
With a message from my love
I wait for night and the tide to rise
To take my letter in
And somewhere in my darkest depths
A candle lights within
A little hope wakes up inside
That my letter will be read
And when the morning sun will rise
Her answer will be there
Ever since the day you died
I cruse the ground I walk
I wish that I could take your place
As this would sooth my soul
The tears that I have shed for you
Will never be enough
And my eternal suffering
Can’t stop my bleeding heart
I wake up slowly from my dreams
And look towards the sea,
And on the sand a message carved
Was written next to me
Ever since the day I died
You curse the ground you walk
I wish that you would end this things
As this would soothe my soul
The tears that you have shed for me
Have surely been enough
I ask thee just remember me
And keep me in your heart
And my eternal suffering
Can’t stop my bleeding heart

06. DYING
I’m walking alone, out on the road
Nowhere to go but in circles
My memories gone, I can’t recall
Been searching my soul for the answers
I woke up senseless in a pool of blood
No feeling in my hands
A crying blackness,
Racing through my heart
That I can’t understand
I am lost in time, in a paradox
Endless thoughts run through my mind
And as the hours pass
I watch my hourglass
Inside I’m dying
5 days have passed, still in the dark
I have no sense of direction
As I move along, from cornet to stone
I can’t control this regression
I can’t feel my heart beat no more
An emptiness cloaks me
The recollection of my very being
Not even as a dream
I am lost in time, in a paradox
Endless thoughts run through my mind
And as the hours pass
I watch my hourglass
Inside I’m dying
I am lost in time, in a paradox
Endless thoughts run through my mind
And as the hours pass
I watch my hourglass
Inside I’m dying
And all that’s left for me
Is not even a memory
Of my old life
Of the day I died

07. ONE LAST NIGHT
Here I stand with the wind on my face
And it seems I can hear your voice
Far from the depths of this cruel
Desert world
That takes, and gives you no choice
I remember that cold winter mourn
You left and did not say goodbye
We argued so much the previous night
Although I knew that you always
Were right
I should have listened to the raven’s cry
I would have wiped your tears aside
I could have drowned my ego and tired
To hold you one last time
One last night
I sat on the porch with your words in
My mind
And I thought of the pain in your eyes
I knew there and then that I had to find
A way
To say I’m sorry and swallow my pride
The sound of the phone seized
My thoughts
As a feeling of joy filled my heart
But the voice a the end of the line
Said the road had taken your life
I should have listened to the raven’s cry
I would have wiped your tears aside
I could have drowned my ego and tired
To hold you one last time
One last night
So here I am, standing on your grave
My heart is shattered
With empty tears raining down my face
That I can’t see from the disgrace
I wish that I could turn back time and
Change all that has happened
So we could have just one more night
Before our days would darken
I should have listened to the raven’s cry
I would have wiped your tears aside
I could have drowned my ego and tired
To hold you one last time
One last night

08. THREADS OF MY LIFE
Wrinkles fill my hands,
As each year that has passed
Has been carved
Through the winters and all the of the cold
I have watched my reflection grow old
Dust, has painted the walls
And my loneliness shadows the doors
All of my life I have waited
Waited for something to wash
On my shores
And now I can hear the sound of silence,
My heartbeat, my breathing
My emptiness filling
(My soul)
I feel, my time is now nearing
And weaves through the threads of my life
And of that I have done and told
Rivers of memories flow,
To the oceans of thoughts in the
Back of my mind
Has the story for all been foretold?
Was my destiny written?
And then to me was then sold?
I’ll carry the scars to my grave
From the last time I looked in her face
She lay on her bed full of tears
As she knew that her time had then neared
And now I can hear the sound of silence,
My heartbeat, my breathing
My emptiness filling
(My soul)
I feel, my time is now nearing
And weaves through the threads of my life
And of that I have done and told

09. ANGELS OF BABYLON
So can you hear me now?
We are calling out your names
Remember us, the very last
The ones to make a change
So can’t you see us now?
We are hanging on the edge
No return, our final stand
This cannot be the end
We cry out to you
Angels of Babylon, tell me what have we become?
The Holy City, the Gate of God
Now rubble in the sand
Angels of Babylon tell me what must be done?
Guide our ways, to the glory days,
We are the chosen ones
Angels of Babylon
Have you forgotten us?
Have you turned your backs?
Here we are, in a no man’s land
Afraid of what will come
We cry out to you
Angels of Babylon, tell me what have we become?
The Holy City, the Gate of God
Now rubble in the sand
Angels of Babylon tell me what must be done?
Guide our ways, to the glory days,
We are the chosen ones
Angels of Babylon

10. SEMENI
To the deepest ocean floor
Many hundred years ago
Sank a beauty of the sea
Her name was “Semeni”
Now the Sailors have a tale
In hopeless times they see her sails
And If she sings her eerie tune
To follow her she beckons you
The sky is black the thunder roars
Colossal waves, a screaming storm
“Man the deck!
Prepare the sails!
She’s claiming us!”
The captain wails
Out from the dark, a symphony
Into our hearts, now we’re in need
Of a miracle
Great sails of white, show the way
Into the night, take us away
Oh “Semeni”
With Strength in heart we gave our all,
A chance to see our kin once more
“But she’s too strong!
All hope is gone!
This is the end
God save our souls!”
Out from the dark, a symphony
Into our hearts, now we’re in need
Of a miracle
Great sails of white, show the way
Into the night, take us away
Oh “Semeni”
We bowed our heads, this was
Defeat for us
And tried with God to find our
Peace save us.
So as we prayed a tune was heard
That brought our hears
Back from the dead!
As we raised our heads to see
Her name was painted “Semeni”
A ship so great as bright as day
And as she sailed the storm gave way
“Follow her!”
Out from the dark, a symphony
Into our hearts, now we’re in need
Of a miracle
Great sails of white, show the way
Into the night, take us away
Oh “Semeni”

11. A DREAM FOR A DREAM (Bonus Track)
I remember being young
All I dreamt was for a farm
But one winter dawn the soldiers came
And from the on
My dreams had changed
The greatest honor this had been
That every man wished they had seen
A knight of pride for king and land
So now this is what I’ve become
A dream for a dream
There’s no regret
Reward my even be my death
No matter though, carped diem
A Love for life this, gave me strength
Today we fight, a wars’ at hand
We will not fail, till death we stand
My brothers…lost we’re left a few
I feel my time is coming soon
I raised my arm for one last time
A final charge was set in mind
But as my arm came down to strike
A pain had shot straight through my spine
A dream for a dream
There’s no regret
Reward may even be my death
No matter though, carpe diem
A love for life this, gave me strength
I lie here cold, close to my end
And soon I too will join my friends
So just before I close my eyes
I remember my old life
This is ironic.. I admit
I gave up my dreams to come to this
Farewell o’world I wish you well
I leave you now ‘tis my last breath
A dream for a dream
There’s no regret
Reward may even be my death
No matter thought carpe diem
A love for life this, gave me strength
