Track Name: Dorian
Driven by beauty
Imortalised by the
canvas and artist

Perfect complete
I will remain
for now and forever

The darkness I'm seeing
Reflected right back at me
This mirror revealing
the other truth inside of me

Far beyond my precious pride
Fill the void of vanity
The shade one step behind
Underneath the pale moonlight
Holding my insanity
The painting ever watching me

give in to my lust
I will embrace all the fears
you would cast off

The sin of the ages
beauty must die
Without it theres nothing

In silence, Im screaming
But no one's there to hear me
The painting now bleeding
Brings out the truth and sets me free

Far beyond my precious pride
Fill the void of vanity
The shade one step behind
Underneath the pale moonlight
Holding my insanity
The painting ever watching me
Track Name: Paradise Over
Please lead me to shelter
Riding the Pendulum down one last time
Time, Hold me together
Facing the Truth of the lie that we had found

Every Single night
it feels like paradise is over
All the time we've had has turned to dust
So take me to river
Bathing in the stars around
Til Charon takes me over
Sleep until the sun goes down
in ever lasting peace

This Love was a bullet
Kill me or cure me, but take me away
Hope, hope was the shadow
Fueling the voice that still leads me astray

Every Single night it feels like paradise is over
All the time we've had has turned to dust
So take me to river
Bathing in the stars around
Til Charon takes me over
Sleep until the sun goes down
in ever lasting peace
Track Name: Never-Ending Silence
Find me
Where the cliff meets the sea
hear the ocean's breeze, sing songs for me

All our wildest dreams
Laid bare in front of me
Broken Harmony, I cant recall

Neverending Silence
Never ending thoughts haunting me
Always tried so hard not to believe
Neverending Moment
Longing for the heart I once had
All my fantasies locked to the past

Holding
On to what might have been
All those fairytales we keep within

seeing all I am
knowing what I could be
hear the sirens call, come set me free

Neverending Silence
Never ending thoughts haunting me
Always tried so hard not to believe
Neverending Moment
Longing for the heart I once had
All my fantasies locked in the past
Track Name: Not Enough
Last flame of life
Will die
As the spotlight fades
Please no more words
No more Sound
brand New wound for me

I hide away, can someone find me
Break down the the chains that bind me
Everything I've tried to do
Is not enough
I see myself, the shattered fortress
Regrets I can not forget
Everything I've tried to do
Is not enough For you

One thousanth page
Cleansing flame
Ends My symphony
All of my dreams
Stored within
You will never see

I hide away, can someone find me
Break down the the chains that bind me
Everything I've tried to do
Is not enough
I see myself, the shattered fortress
Regrets I can not forget
Everything I've tried to do
Is not enough For you
Track Name: Fade Away
Once again
I'm feeling the thorns on my head
As Im sitting in silence
Incomplete
The void growing now day by day
The unknown I can't take

Giving up
But can we count the costs
as we serve all our lives on a silver plate
Chasing shadows
we've been hunting after
Do the angels have faces

There is a voice that still calls out to me
Singing sweet melodies
Takes me away forever
There is a song that still echos through time
Such a sweet lullaby
No time to let it fade away

I believed
That I held the world my hands
had A life never ending
Now I see
If we are just grains in the sand
We can never be free

Taken All I've given
Lost among the living
forgive me now, but you know I tried
Falling faster
Facing my disaster
When theres No hope to Save me

There is a voice that still calls out to me
Singing sweet melodies
Takes me away forever
There is a song that still echos through time
Such a sweet lullaby
No time to let it fade away
Track Name: Sweetest Dreams
Fields of green we used to live for
meadows far as eyes can see
I close my eyes and hear the wind blow
Takes me where I long to be

All you wanted was the sunlight
One last walk to the sea
Sweetest Dreams are all you asked for
One last chance to breathe

Dreaming of the endless summer
Winter turned the skies to gray
Daylight's gone, the flowers withered
The coldest night wispered your name.

All you saw was starlight
One last wish to be free
Sweetest Dreams are all you asked for
will you remember me?

All you wanted was tomorrow
But time slipped away
Sweetest Dreams are all you asked for
Just One more summers day
Track Name: Blind
I have never seen a face
so lost inside a masquerade
have you ever faced the truth

Somehow these years were cruel
Still so young yet you lost your youth
Close your eyes to get a better view

Can't you see that you pull the strings
Til life falls apart at the seam
You live and you lust
Been betrayed by trust
Yet somehow you're blind to see

Your sojourn tears have lost their touch,
maybe you've tried just a bit too much
the test of time has turned the other way

Your mind's illusions come and go
from the brightest spark to the dullest glow
but they don't tell you anything that you don't know

Can't you see that you pull the strings
Til life falls apart at the seam
You live and you lust
Been betrayed by trust
Yet somehow you're blind to see
Track Name: Our Story
The first breath
still lingers
The swansong marks the beginning

The silence
now fills the air
The voice that haunts me from nowhere

Why was I so blind
That I couldn't see the signs
That claimed my life

I always thought that forever
it was you and me
The path to be free

If I could turn back time
I would change all my life
Rewrite the pages made for you
Would I learn from the
mistakes I once made
or repeat again

The whole world
in black and white
The old day dawning from new night

Would I take the chance
To leave this world behind
Wake up the sky

If I could turn back time
I would change all my life
Rewrite the pages made for you
Would I learn from the
mistakes I once made
or repeat again

All of this time I've been chasing
All the dreams I had of you
Given the chance could I start once more
And write, our story anew

If I could turn back time
I would change all my life
Rewrite the pages made for you
Would I learn from the
mistakes I once made
or repeat again

All of this time I've been chasing
All the dreams I had of you
Given the chance could I start once more
And write, our story anew
Track Name: Blood
My angel cries out in pain
The nightmares creeping in
Ghosts come and whisper their names
The Lost forgotten

Heart of the child
Innocence dies
Changed by the time that befalls
Blood pays the price of sins before
Born out of hate
Fueled by the lies they were told
A Child guides the child
that never learns

The crimson moon high tonight
The white rose withering
Where has their childhood now gone?
we Mourn for the young

Heart of the child
Innocence dies
Changed by the time that befalls
Blood pays the price of sins before
Born out of hate
Fueled by the lies they were told
A Child guides the child
that never learns

How can they love, if we only teach them to hate
How can we learn, If we only replicate

Heart of the child
Innocence dies
Changed by the time that befalls
Blood pays the price of sins before
Born out of hate
Fueled by the lies they were told
A Child guides the child
that never learns
Track Name: Memories
Into the light
up from the ashes
A distant Memory
The phoenix calls
out from the sorrow
within

Shes looking down
kept in her tower
division never seen
painful regret
clouding desire
she feels

Singing
words that were born without
meaning
Far from the world we see
one hundred days being lost in the maze
Searching for where she should be

Feelings
made by a heart that's not
beating
Fragile faced masquerade
pulling her down as the curtains unbound
leaving her bare to the world

Last word
The final sound in a
dead world
Suddenly she can see
Gone is the ground under ashes she found
lost in the dance of the sea

Rising
on Wings of the prayer
shesbeen hiding
Kept from her unaware
Gone are the days of the
coal blackened rain
Finally found her way home

Can we learn to believe
Live life so free
As we will dance for eternity
part of the show that never ends

Memories linger
innocence shed
Ashes to ash but it isnt the end
fake one more smile and learn to pretend
Track Name: Piano Black
Moment of silence
The lights come on
And Now the show begins
Playing all the roles we made
Hiding the true face within

This is the final moment
The end of everything
we tried all our lives to achieve
This is the final minute
the sands of time are running out
Give me one chance to breathe

moment of weakness
The walls come down
for all the world to see
All my fears uncertainty
The war inside of myself

This is the final moment
The end of everything
we tried all our lives to achieve
This is the final minute
the sand of time are running out
Give me one chance to breathe

------------------------------------------

Born out of the Ashes
In the ruins of the life I once had lost
Regret comes soiled deep in our misery
Hiding from the sun

From the cradle to the stage
Life is just a never ending show
we play the role and then we start again
Lifes an endless masquerade
Hiding all the fears we hold within
When masks are down we never are the same

Taken all my chances
Marked the chapter done
And Now I can Move on
Find hope, find peace, whole new reasons to be
Live as life moves on

From the cradle to the stage
Life is just a never ending show
we play the role and then we start again
Lifes an endless masquerade
Hiding all the fears we hold within
When masks are down we never are the same

--------------------------------------------------

All this time
Ive tried to seem so strong
In this time
The waves tore down walls I once had built high

deep in me
feel The fire die for the last time
Now I see
I am only here, to live the lie

Endless Nights, Endless silence
Please just let me sleep
Endless Doubt, Endless fear in me
I cant release

This is who I am
This is who I've always been
The mask has come undone
This is what I am
This is what I've always been
The curtain falls
