Prologue 02:35
I awoke – as if from a dream Bruised and battered by the exertions of recent days My complexion felt damp … wet from my tears … but softer and gentler than before I beheld my hands – my feet … All things were smaller and more delicate. My body felt so light and so relieved – where the blows and kicks my body suffered should feel different. The pains from my wounds had gone I felt I had arrived – finding a beginning whose ending was not yet visible, but almost certainly existent And this ending will open up into another beginning and yet another ending, which I hope will again remain invisible for a long time …

La Cage 07:55
The punishment I get for leaving The torture of keeping me safe It‘s a prison gate I believe in It lets me out, it‘s keeping me brave Head and heart fi ghting a bittersweet struggle In this time full of decadence While there‘s never been a need for discussion There‘s more and more to this dance Pressure on me, pressure from you The game I‘m losing it‘s keeping me in Feel bulletproof until there are shots The heart beats on, but drowns when it‘s caught Head and heart fighting a bittersweet struggle what‘s the meaning on this sacred page Wanna look hard, I wanna look closer on the other side of this gilded cage It‘s hard to overcome The pressure makes me numb Each day left to survive The dreaming of the night It‘s easy to stick to rules Plenty of things to do Reason could be a friend Afraid until the end Clocks can tick a different way Paths can end and lead you astray Every leaf‘s been born to a certain tree … The calm before the storm The warm before the cold A plan slowly unfolds … The misfit in the mirror maze It‘s hard to tell the difference The black sheep in a white disguise It can‘t hide from it‘s demise The silent cry in the loudest roar The white flag in the blackest war A green light in a sea of red The dividing stone in the riverbed Reason can drive your mind Reason can make you blind Reason can twist your soul Reason gets you out of control Now reason strikes to tear me down My belief dosn‘t need solid ground The Iron fi st of rage destroyed The gilded cage, I used to enjoy Head and heart fighting a bittersweet struggle What‘s the point if I feel lost I need a place, I need a shoulder Now it‘s time, I have to face the costs A plan finally unfolds

The Star 06:53
Fighting a battle, that was lost from the start It‘s thrilling the thoughts and aching the heart It‘s bitter sweet, the taste of your lips And it shakes me to feel your hands on my hips Damn! Forgotten dreams you saved me from my ground Who would have thought there‘s magic around Again again again the well known game But starting from scratch is never the same Before we reach the target, we‘ve gone too far You played the ballad on your blue guitar So complicated, so short and so long A hopeless glimmer‘s burning, growing strong What will be the price we‘ll have to pay There‘s no place left, where we can stay What can I be for you in this tale How mighty the waves we‘d have to sail Why was it me who lifted the curse Trenching and hunting, fight for better or worse Your blue haunting fate into my guilty red hands Maybe it‘s up to me to say where this ends Head and heart fighting their bittersweet struggle Our friendship lost its innocence Something‘s gone that wasn‘t there before Who is the offender within this game If two sufferers fuse, will they be healed after fusion If two warm hearts meet Will there be coldness after all Why was it me who lifted the curse Trenching and hunting, fight for better or worse Your blue haunting fate into my guilty red hands Maybe it‘s up to me to say where this … And what ever will be, I know, it can‘t be fair So let me be what I know best: A star that‘s always there …

Inphantasia 05:48
In the beauty of a poison dripping lies the true-bred petal In the tightness of a hanging noose, you‘ll find your native mettle Between the take-off and the bounce the insight, you‘re addicted to life It‘s the wisper and the calling from over there – words as sharp as a knife So close your eyes, calm down by breathing deeper Fold your hands and push away your fears Take a running start and – head-off to Inphantasia Maybe forever, maybe short or maybe never Take the cold hand of the queen her snow will guide you across the mirror With every breath of dust another step, that brings you subtly nearer Holding back the basic human needs is your near-death experience Isolation, urban solitude, your faithful, true inferiors close your eyes, close your eyes close your eyes, calm down by breathing deeper take a running start and – head of to Inphantasia

Tartarus 09:12
Can you see the lights outthere? Dancing fires everywhere Their tongues are feeding on my fears The firestorm‘s drowning in my ears Indistinct whispers – growing loud Time is spinning back to its sprout Naked, huddled, stained lying here Seduced, abused – I‘m lost in fear Can you see the lights outthere? Dancing fires everywhere Their tongues are feeding on your fears The firestorm‘s drowning in your ears Lost without reason, my eyes empty sockets Gotta find a way out of this endless night Hand me a weapon, a knife in my pocket Where ever I am, whatever I must fight All my might has gone I am a little girl Morrigaine is coming Eyes are going pearl A laughing devil on my mind All my senses goin‘ blind I can see myself, I’m dead Fadin‘ away into the black Father, how could you cause all this ache Mother, why did you made that mistake Mother, I‘m trapped in solitude Father, I yearn for you Morrigaine, goddess of this ground Spare me, forgive my sins and bare the thoughts I‘ve drowned Leaving my vein is one bloody scream Out of a memory, an old tarnished dream Empty my senses a hollow shell rests Losin‘ a life which seems pointless at last

Elysium 08:39
Calm down, take a breath Let your limbs dangle around Don‘t speak, just rest Lay your head on the ground Your swollen eyelids heal away Dark, frightening temper‘s turned to spring Morrígaine is taking wing Open the door into my dreams Bring back the days and nights of gorgeous extremes I wanna be a human, wanna shake off my dust I‘m lost in your arms You fade out my harm Mother, you led my up to Frayia Brother, my hand through Inphantasia Mother, the glory on earth thou art Father, lead my heart Open the door and pave the way into my dreams Bring back the days and nights of gorgeous extremes I wanna be a human, wanna shake off my dust Just a wing away from your kingdom I‘m a slave to your treasure I‘m lost in your arms Rise by rise you fade out my harm Frayja, goddess of love, you‘re the one I trust Dive myself into white, comprehensive bliss Bring back the prime and spirit, all I sorely missed I wanna be a woman, wanna spread out my roots Just a wing away from your crown I‘m a slave to your treasure You fade out my harm From shore to shore basking in your charm Frayja, goddess of love, let me taste your fruits

Mundalis 08:35
My friend, watch out, these fires all around But glorious now appears their sound The time seems right, let‘s follow up the light Let‘s face the spirit, the brightening of the night It‘s not my deranged fantasy, that rules this venture But part of my reality, a feast sublime Laughter, joy and pleasure in a sweet surrender Syrona, now is your time A flickering shine behind the borderline Turning blood into my wine My time has come, the measure of the drum is leading me into the sun Dance into the grey of dawn and feast your triumphs Shout the words of victory into the air Live and toast your cups, come and break the silence Syrona, take our despair I seeded love to raise a tree `Cause only love is setting free When I‘m gone, I‘ll leave a trace Recovered trust beyond the haze Take forgiveness, a fruit ripend by your heart Nothing less than love and hope Share the love and keep the hope Mother, my journey has come to an end Father, extremes are going to blend Mother, epiphany was your grace Father, bless this place Into the sun, onto the run Into the ray of hope, into the light …

Pictures 03:17
Almost forgotten how to touch It must have been a touch too much At this time in life – maybe it‘s strange A flower‘s blossom in it‘s twilight age Moving pictures through my mind Dyed in facets from a world behind I sense you, your aura Like from another world a thousand moons away Obsession, like rapture Constant companion, my guide through night and day A thousand moons away Lined up futures in a row Memories could have been ages ago Floating whispers in the air Do you originate from here
9.
Human 04:11
A word from my mouth A glimpse to my right Care has been taken to blacken the light Angst-ridden lies Ill-fated guise like a thief that has stolen the night I am the sinner, and the shamed I am the guilty Pleasure to blame Are we equal We are human Aren’t we equal on the inside No-one is equal, we are human We are the others walking side by side A second too long An unblinking eye Dried out and blurry the sight of the blind Back to the wall To fight or to fall Where is the right place and when is time The dark side in person, a scapegoat in the game Perverted monster – ain‘t we all the same We cannot change it we can‘t escape it
10.
Fallen, revived – Like a phoenix born in ash Burning golden – Tasted trouble and pleasure on my flesh A neverending quest now ended by eternity The perfect empire crumbled into bliss Hold on liberty – Hold on happiness Don‘t hide away from the light Embrace the fortune, shine in white A neverending quest now ended by eternity Just hold on, please go on, liberty The perfect empire has crumbled into bliss Oh, hold on Let‘s count on happiness Hold on, don’t hide, don’t hide, from the light Hold on liberty – Hold on happiness Don‘t hide away from the light Hold on – A neverending quest now ended by eternity The perfect empire crumbled into bliss

Hope 04:28
When winter‘s gone, the snow starts to melt The trees outside are getting greener I will release all my hope and the heat, I hold in my heart, that‘s what I dream of I promise I will show you the sun in my soul And I will try to recapture your spirit, I am losing control I want to feel your heart beating next to mine And I will heal all the tortures of our times So give me your sorrows, I will toss them away Tell me your dreams and I will make them real today When love grows deep, the walls start to crumble And passion will fill your lifetime You will release the sadness and pain, replaced by my garden of sunlight I will dry, brush away all the harm that drips down from your soul And you will sense the reasons for love, it‘s a feeling that will grow Hand me your sorrows, I will toss them away I‘ll tell you my dreams and you will say … And if you wonder is salvation a sign I will be the answer – slowly – time after time you will be mine So lay down your sorrows, I will kiss them away Tell me your dreams and I will make them real today
