A new kind of plague Spreads across the world United we march Towards dystopia Beyond the horizon A shadow from the past Together in silence Determination from the dark Leaving scorched earth behind Beyond the horizon A shadow from the past Walking among the blind Blank eyes gazing straight ahead There’s a child standing out Like a candle trying to force away the dark Our legacy will try to drown the light Anxiously, we wish them well The eyes of the child Affecting me Burning still With relentless hope The day when we look back at the horizon at dawn The blazing sun reflecting in the children´s eyes Beyond the horizon A shadow from the past

Caress my pain Please take me to your paradise Where all my dreams are written in the sand Disclose my sins Please save me from this desolate place Where all I feel is cold and numb Hopes and dreams are written in the sand In a cold desert full of storms Hopes and dreams are built by sand In a desert full of storms So deep inside I hide my fears and fragile dreams I am worn down by apathy Escape is near I won’t look back ever again Disguised I leave this tainted world Hopes and dreams are written in the sand In a cold desert full of storms Hopes and dreams are built by sand In a desert full of storms

The Beholder 06:05
I awoke in my shadow A vast world made of dust My eyes paralyzed I slip into my dreamless state A slow and vague sensation Of years that passes by The hazy light that fades Escape into my darkness A wish to dream Give me a sign Will I be blind Heal my eyes I embrace my deep despair Deep inside myself I hide Silence screaming in my mind Reality to dust I grind A wish to dream Give me a sign Will I be blind All my life Still trapped in my shadow My body is now petrified Stale I count the years That passes by in silence …in silence

The day when grey skies and rain Suffocated my screams Falling on my knees The day you went away You went away, without sounds, without words You went away, before I could see you one last time You went away, left every piece of me behind The pain I feel will never heal My yearning grows in vain for you return You went away, I am stuck in my defeat You went away, what parts of you still lingers in me In my heart there is a hole The pain I feel will never heal My yearning grows in vain for you return

Emotional decay Egoism commence Static domination Empathic precipice The heirs are now too old to rule A governmental demise Forged by fear are the cynic rulers Fed by greed they dig mankind’s grave The tears are lost And also the morning sun Words in fire The bonfire of history The air is now too thin to breathe Everything will cease to exist Forged by fear are the cynic rulers Fed by greed they dig mankind’s grave Tomorrows world is far too real The political plague grew too strong Tomorrows dream will never be There’s no escape, what have we done Tomorrows world is far too real Tomorrows dream will never be The word is silent The world is dead Only ruins remains Only hope was restrained The heirs are all gone by now Everything has ceased to exist Forged by fear were the cynic rulers Fed by greed they dug mankind’s grave

Sida vid sida vi följe slår Min skugga och jag i min mörka vrå I ljusets låga en skälvande tröst I senaste timman drömmar kan nås Mörkret tar mig till en annan plats En tillflyktsort från allt Det där jag helst av allt vill glömma bort En plats där jag kan andas ut Aldrig igen, vakna upp Aldrig igen, se mitt förflutna igen I mångubbens magiska skimrande sken Jag dansar runt med skuggan hand i hand Till en melodi av mitt vildaste skratt Jag beträder nu galenskapens rand En flyktig dans I mörker utan sans Hand i hand Till galenskapens land

Nothingness 07:27
Time is a wound that will not heal Broken, beaten and alone Obsessed by a thought of what once was A void is all that’s left of me All I ever wanted was for you to see ...for you to hear, for you to feel Listen, there’s something I want you to know I can’t remember last December that’s what you pushed me to You wrote our names in the home I built A haunting image of a passion forsaken ”Deep breaths - ignite the flame Let the water surround you Drink the liquid - let your head rest Let it all go where your mind will take you” I am all I was ever meant to be I am nothing - king of emptiness Doomed to be a hollow shell I am empty - king of nothingness You lured me back into your warm embrace Souls intertwined, your touch set me free Happiness you did not ever seek Your cold, dead heart knew all along ”Breathe - the water is still In the candle’s flickering light Lean back - Turn the page Let the spirit consume you” I am all I was ever meant to be I am nothing - king of emptiness Doomed to be a hollow shell I am empty - king of nothingness I close my eyes and drift away Let her sink into the past
