Track Name: In the Land of Dreams
You walk alone in gray days
You always look for someone else to guide you
You wander through the shadows
And your big ego follows right behind you

Take the world as it is, In the land of dreams
See the world as it is, In the land of dreams

You face the hardest challenge
To dodge and duck whenever truth is knocking
Your path is straight and clear, and you know
You only have to keep on walking

Take the world as it is, In the land of dreams
See the world as it is, In the land of dreams
What has been stolen away will soon be replaced
We’re ready to accept the gifts of the fate

The road goes ever on and on far from
The door where you start every morning
You find it slightly weird but
You shrug your shoulders and just keep on flowing

You walk alone in gray days
You always look for someone else to guide you
You wander through the shadows
And your big ego follows right behind you

Take the world as it is, In the land of dreams
See the world as it is, In the land of dreams
What has been stolen away will soon be replaced
We’re ready to accept the gifts of the fate
Track Name: More Than I Can
I buy more books than I can read
I get more food than I can eat
And I have more music than I can listen to
And I got more games than I can play with you
I got more movies than I can watch
I got more pants than I got crotch
I got more dreams than I can spare
I got my things shed everywhere

There's always one more mountain that I have to climb
There's always one more valley by the riverside
There's always one more song that I forgot to play
There's always one more dream to take the pain away

I got addiction to get me through my days
And preconceptions to help me find my ways
I got action-figures to know what my heroes are
And I know the end exactly from the start
I need attention from all my peers
And I got some pills for all my fears
I got more feelings than I’ll admit
And I got some people to hang out with
But I got too few years left to live

There's always one more mountain that I have to climb
There's always one more valley by the riverside
There's always one more song that I forgot to play
There's always one more dream to take the pain away
Track Name: Learn to Let Go
I fear to feel fear, I'm scared to be scared
And I'm afraid to be afraid
I'm mad with myself and I don't talk to me no more
I love to be loved, but I want control
You can't take it away from me
I'm stubborn and proud and I don't want no clouds in my perfect sky

Recalling the things you promised to me
I'm angry and tired, I feel uninspired
Creeping like vines the feeling arise
I feel like I'm trapped deep inside

I hate to feel hate, I run from my fate
And I’m ashamed to be ashamed
I can't understand who's looking from the mirror back at me
I lie to my lies and that's no surprise
What else did you expect from me?
Whatever works is surely going to work just fine for me

But sometimes I hope to learn to let go
Get free of the past, just get free at last
One step at a time, debugging my mind
And finally feel my deep inside

Learn to let go, Learn to let go

I fear to feel fear, I'm scared to be scared
I love to be loved, but I want control
I hate to feel hate, I run from my fate
I lie to my lies, and that's no surprise

I can see myself reflected in a thousand crystal shards
Every mirror in this place has been broken from the other side
That's why I know I have to learn to let go
There's a life beyond these chains, I can make myself whole again

Learn to let go, Learn to let go
Track Name: Millennium
Everything's already said
I hold my heart tight in my hand
I spread my wings and fly away
Everything's already written
And carved in stone with pain and hatred
Alone I wander in my soul

Visions from a new millennium
I can't see anything except for myself
Visions from a new millennium
And I can't see anything except for myself, except for myself

Can't you see the dark that's coming
And all the ancient grudges rising
In mighty battles and inner little wars
The fire will come from the sky above
To purify all the lost souls
To lighten up the darkest times

Visions from a new millennium
I can't see anything except for myself
Visions from a new millennium
And I can't see anything except for myself, except for myself

The rain will bleed its fire and burn the Earth
Our mother will die
And there won't be anything except for ourselves
Black clouds of fiery angels
Will clash their swords with righteous anger
And all our precious things will fade away

Visions from a new millennium
I can't see anything except for myself
Visions from a new millennium
And I can't see anything except for ourselves, except for ourselves
Track Name: The Silver Key - I - Intro or the Loss of the Silver Key
You look at me like I can give you all the answers you seek
But I can assure you I can't even remember the questions that need to be asked anymore
And all around me There's a whole outside world that scares me to death
And urge me to grow up
I can't even remember exactly what I should become

Growing up is growing old is growing dead as fast as we can
Can't you see the shadow?
Oh, I'll make you see the shadow!
Isn't it better to be like a child?
Track Name: The Silver Key - II - The Gaunt Man or the King of Shadows
I hear a sound, a buzzing noise, a thunder in the night
And suddendly I wake up sweating, the streets are burning bright
A century has passed since yesterday
And every ghost and shadow has taken me away

So I look down the alleyway, got shivers down my spine
There's something really wrong out there and I'm not feeling fine
A black gaunt man is standing in the yard
His eyes are open wide, the lights of crystal shards

The night-gaunt dressed in shadows
With fingers like winter branches in a graveyard
The gaunt man lives in shadows
He'll mesmerize you with his gaze

And so I run away from him but I don't know this town
And all around I see the ruins, the city's crumbling down
Whatever I'm supposed to do in here?
There's no one else that I can see, no one that I can hear

And suddendly I face a child, eyes open wide with fear
He's hunched and trembling like a leaf, the dirty melts with tears
I look at him and I'm so shocked to see
I recognize his deep blue stare, the dirty boy is me

The night-gaunt shade is all around
His long black nails emerge from every shadow
The gaunt man's touch is haunting
He'll keep you here inside his maze
Track Name: The Silver Key - III - The Running Kid
Down the sewers, fly you fools!
You've been breaking all the rules
That's no joke, it's for real
You have broken the first seal

Did you hear the faeries chanting
Or it's just the wind that's rambling?
That's no joke, it's for real
And so pass the second seal

Keep on running down
In the sewers under the city
Keep on running down, down, down

So you reach the haunted room
Ghosts and spell, a flying broom
That's no joke, that's for real
So you've broken the third seal

In the urban legends mall
You got something to recall
Did you know? It's for real
And you shattered the fourth seal

Keep on running down
In the sewers under the city
Keep on running down, down, down

Helter-skelter, hurly-burly
You're too late or you're too early
Absolutely, it's for real
And behind you the fifth seal

There's a light across the room
Sure as hell it's not the moon
This is what you came to do
The sixth seal is broken too!
Track Name: The Silver Key - IV - The Guardian of the Seventh Seal
You're not over
But you're not under either
Not above it
But surely not below
So many things that I could show

Join yourself and
Be whole once again now
Have some rest
You ran too long without a trail
To shake the shadow off your tail

You can stay here
As long as you feel like it
Don't you worry
I know exactly how you feel
So lean your back on the last seal

No time or space
No up or down here
There's nothing out there
Just pain and sorrow
No closure or end
No light or shadow
Why don't you lay down and sleep?
Track Name: The Silver Key - V - Through the Gates of the Silver Key
Once upon a time there was a house, right here
On the outskirts of nowhere
I seem to remember I lived in the house
I looked outside the windows
In the warm spring afternoons
And I saw swallows racing around the house
There was music coming from Hergest Ridge
Out there, where faeries sang in the wind
And beyond the hill, there was a city
Shining with marbles and ancient golden towers
People lived there, singing forgotten songs
And playing harps and lutes not of this world
With sounds no human instrument can imitate
There was a lake, under the twin suns
And dark stars in the sky at night
There's no house, now, no swallows
Theres' no windows or spring afternoons anymore
Just the shattered and broken remains of the seal
Was the guardian right? Is this all there is?
Where's the Key? Where is the horn gate?
Memories, memories are all I have left.
Track Name: The Silver Key - VI - Dim Carcosa
Along the shore the cloud waves break
The twin suns sink behind the lake
The shadows lengthen in Carcosa

Strange is the sky where black stars rise
And strange moons circle through the skies
But stranger still is lost Carcosa

Songs that the Hyades shall sing
Where flap the tatters of the king
Must die unheard in dim Carcosa

Song of my soul, my voice is dead
Die thou unsung as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in lost Carcosa
Track Name: The Silver Key - VII - The Silver Key
I can still remember sailing on the Oukranos stream
Pass the gilded spires of towers in the ruins of Thran
Travelling on elephants through the jungle Kled
Where the broken columns lie asleep beneath the moon

I remember yellow eyes of cats in ancient Ulthar
Far and wide we've gone to find the path to Unknown Kadath
And I still can hear the sound of night-gaunts wings in shadows
Gnawing teeths of ghouls that dwell beneath the Dreamlands world

And after forty years I'm back where I belong
There's nothing left down there to tell me who I was
Tomorrow melts with yesterday

A chilly wind is blowing, my soul begins to soar
The Yellow King's approaching, another Gaunt Man spawn
I see a swallow flying high up the darkest skies
A falling star is rising, the shadows turn to lights

At last I found I am the Key
Track Name: The Silver Key - VIII - Finale or the King of Light
It was many years ago
That I signed the devil's deal
When I first came to this place
And I swore to limit myself
So I kept my life as a secret
Just to join the human race

Looking through the gates
Now I see you are the King of Light
I see the King of Light
Lay your hand over me

Every time I'm born again
Every step I take on the trail
I was always downward bound
And I heard the angels' laugh
Since I took this pricey path
That was leading underground

Through the looking glass
Now I see I am the King of Light
I am the King of Light
Maya's veil has been raised now

I am leaving the stage and refolding my wings
Now I know what it's like to be living the dream
Life is so much bigger than this
Every spin of the wheel, every thought that you think
Track Name: Welcome
I welcome my space
And all the times I've been in someone else's place
Every dream I lost along the way
When my mind was stuck on yesterdays

I welcome my life
And all the times I kept my secrets deep inside
All the universe inside of me
Uncreating what I used to be

And I welcome my time
When I quit before the game was over
I welcome myself
Standing on the edge of what I'm going to be

This is a new start
'Cause now I'm free to welcome you inside my heart
All the times that I have fought with you
Uncreating what I used to do

And I welcome my time
When I quit before the game was over
I welcome myself
Standing on the edge of what I'm going to be

I welcome my death
