Track Name: New Era
Stand on the shoulders of giants
See the new world about to begin
As I reflect on this moment
It washes over me
this chapter must end

Eyes so blind
I try to remember
The days we had
Spent together once more

I see no Helios Sun
Just Obsidian skies
A truth to remind us
All things, may crumble and fall
Those that outlive us all
They someday will change

I always thought of forever
But eternity’s come to an end
I never knew that the game
We played was a tragedy
The final lament

Broken hearts
Will pave the road back home
This age has past
The new world has begun

I see no Helios Sun
Just Obsidian skies
A truth to remind us
All things, may crumble and fall
Those that outlive us all
They someday will change
Track Name: The Great Heart
Believe In Me
and See
Tell me what it means
To care
Be there
The greatest heart laid bare

This is the road set out for nowhere
Follow it once more
Still we're blind to all the signs
Like we were before

I will set out to wander
Through this maze of thorns
Never lost, always searching
Still I feel Alone
I am walking in shadows
Losing my direction as you take me home

Believe In Me and See
Tell me what it means
To care, be there
Greatest heart laid bare

When will we face our new beginning
Bathe in morning glow
Walk among the fields of gold
Finally let them go

But I sit and I'm watching
Both our worlds colide
In that moment so clearly
I now see that This is the point where our past and
all our futures fade away into the void

As we are falling we dont hit the ground
As we are sinking we don't make a sound
Die for the moment
but live for the sound
Hold on to the piece of the heart we have found

Believe In Me and See
Tell me what it means
To care, be there
Greatest heart laid bare
Track Name: Ashes
Losing Time
Seconds turn to hours
Standing on the sidelines staring at the looking glass
Turn away
I can't face this moment
May we stay beneath this sun, Until we meet again

The cold night calls
Will it ever be the same
The fairytale's over now
I can't sleep
Voices echo in my dreams
Of everything that might have been

This is the end of the Road
Ashes in an empty world
The Broken Hearts lost deep beneath the snow
This is the path of relief
Suffering like poetry
The beauty of a life we'll never see

Shed no tears
Nothing lasts forever
Even tallest mountains someday will return to dust
Hush my dear
Let the silence take you
Hold on to the memories before it's too late

This empty room
Walls are closing in on me
It feels like I'm drowning
Now I cant breathe
Reaching out for my relief
The rain will always ease the pain

This is the end of the Road
Ashes in an empty world
The Broken Hearts lost deep beneath the snow
This is the path of relief
Suffering like poetry
The beauty of a life we'll never see
Track Name: Calm Before the Flame
The nights are colder now
Living in the fantasy
Of when we dared to dream

The truth is coming out
Floating in the endless sea
With no one there for me

When all is said and done
Nothing else remains
Can we hold on or fall forevermore
Before the morning comes
Who'll be left to blame?
We're calling this the calm before the flame

I'm running out of time
I can feel the future fade
My hope will sail away

If you could stay behind
Would you find another way
Or relive yesterday

When all is said and done
Nothing else remains
Can we hold on or fall forevermore
Before the morning comes
Who'll be left to blame?
We're calling this the calm before the flame

This my moment
If we take this chance
The breath I've taken
Before the final dance

When all is said and done
Nothing else remains
Can we hold on or fall forevermore
Before the morning comes
Who'll be left to blame?
We're calling this the calm before the flame
Track Name: Burning Bridges (Ft David Balfour)
Your silver tounge
Hid the truth too long
Slowly the light's breaking through

I'll play along
Throw the dice once more
The storm is coming in soon

I'm giving up
Farewell to what we have lost
I leave my past behind
Savour the loss
Driven by empty words
I watch our bridges burn

I tried to find
Better peace of mind
playing with chance for too long

I waited through
Loved and hated you
I'll walk away now for good

I'm giving up
Farewell to what we have lost
I leave my past behind
Savour the loss
Driven by empty words
I watch our bridges burn

Nothing to save
No Halcyon days
Just new scars left inside
Say you're ok
I'll embrace this pain
It proves I'm still alive

I'm giving up
Farewell to what we have lost
I leave my past behind
Savour the loss
Driven by empty words
I watch our bridges burn

I'm giving up
Farewell to what we have lost
I leave my past behind
Savour the loss
Driven by empty words
I watch our bridges burn
Track Name: If Tomorrow Never Came
There is something stranger here
Building deep within
Telling me that I am not alone

I have been lost in this maze of emotions
I wander around waiting for edens song

When my whole world turns to agony
Take away my pain
Then your voice is my Therapy
All of the love kept inside of me
Things we'll never say
Would you know now if tomorrow never came

Though the book was never told
Stories will unfold
Writing the last page with my blood

Hopelessly waiting, there's no happy ending
Can we hold on until the last lantern dies

When my whole world turns to agony
Take away my pain
Then your voice is my Therapy
All of the love kept inside of me
Things we'll never say
Would you know now if tomorrow never came
Track Name: Our Regrets
I am your pain
Voice in the darkness
That leads you astray
Doubting every
Choice that was made
Breaking them down
Every lie each mistake
No Forgetting

I am the fear thats inside
The truth, the broken disguise
The darkness deep in your mind

I am the doubt at the start
The void deep inside your heart
The place you never dreamed of

I have let you down
Revealing who I am
The pauper crown
Taken it's hold

Maybe the time wasnt right
You go onwards and I only hurt you
Someday soon I'll meet you there
By the ocean of regret we share

I will be there
If i am needed
The drug that you bear
Your addiction
So unaware
Fueling the pain
I will bring you despair
No escaping

This has gone too far
I can see my own face
In every scar
You cannot hide

Maybe the time wasnt right
You go onwards and I only hurt you
Someday soon I'll meet you there
By the ocean of regret we share
Track Name: Kingdom
Everything born
Has a road set before it
Even the pawns in our play
While we were dreaming
The clock hands were freezing
And now time lead us astray

Releasing, Repeating
It's just the rules of nature
Tearing us apart again
Forever, I'm waiting
Just want to feel the sunlight
shining on our skin

In your eyes I see a place
where we are worlds apart
Far off in a distant place
The kingdom for our scars

We spent our lives
Reaching for new horizons
But never followed the plan
Every hope, every dream
Our ambitions
Are only lines in the sand

Releasing, Repeating
It's just the rules of nature
Tearing us apart again
One Moment, Of Silence
Is not enough to change the world
That we live in

In your eyes I see a place
where we are worlds apart
Far off in a distant land
a kingdom for our scars

And every night I hear you calling
A shade from the shadows
But I can see a new tomorrow
we'll never get back

In your eyes I see a place
where we are worlds apart
Far off in a distant place
The kingdom for our scars
Track Name: Wonderland
If Life is not just a dream
Is there more than it seems?
A distant thunder calls out to me

My heart is beating like it never has before
I face the mirror, don't recognise myself
Opened my mind, reached out to learn
The Secrets of life

Follow the path before you
Trust in yourself to know the way
before your eyes unveil this new wonderland

Shades of Life
Arent just black and white
Surrender to yourself
There will be new horizons before you
Desperate times soon will pass you by
Don't give in to dispair
There is more than tomorrow can give you

The weight is heavy, pushing down on me
I seek relief from drowning in this sea
This hollow feeling always there
takes me down to the deep

Canvas set bare before you
No need for flames to light your way
Before your eyes unveil this new wonderland

Shades of Life
Arent just black and white
Surrender to yourself
There will be new horizons before you
Desperate times soon will pass you by
Don't give in to dispair
There is more than tomorrow can give you
Track Name: This Life
We're frozen here
Like a candle in the shadows
The end draws near
No Tomorrow, Time to borrow

Take this life of mine
Break it, make it shine
Let the cradle fall
To begin it all

When Time holds still
I still hear you, I still feel you
Like photographs
All the same days, Never changing

Take this life of mine
Break it, make it shine
take this soul so frail
lift it let it sail
Track Name: The End of Time
Every night she will stand by the ocean
See the star filled sky
All alone while the city is sleeping
Watch the world pass by

When I am weak
The silence sings to me
Now angels weep
And call me to the sea

All the wonder she kept from her childhood
Was not made to last
Though she thought it was just the beginning
The end came too fast

When I am weak
The silence sings to me
Now angels weep
And call me to the sea

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

One last winter
If we stay strong
All those memories
will now live on

Hear the voices of a thousand angels
They are calling out to me
Singing songs of a new horizon
Where our future must be

Move on
Find out what lies beyond
Leave the old world behind you
Sail on
Through the oceans of time
Find a new life together

Wishfilled longing
For days gone by
All the greenfields
Joy and good times

We are soon reaching the final hour
then our new life can begin
Say no prayers for all the roads not taken
Just remember who I've been

Move on
Find out what lies beyond
Leave the old world behind you
Sail on
through the oceans of time
Find a new life together

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

I had tried to stay with you
But the waves were too high
They were drawn by the sirens calling
For the final goodbye

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

Remember I'm with you
I'll always be by your side
Forever I'll be there
I never will forget for

All those I cherish, wont pass me by
They will stay with me at the end of time
