Lyrics

1. LEAVE ME HEAR TO DREAM

Endless
Like infinity
A still and starry sea
Leading to a lifeless galaxy
Washes over me
When suddenly I see
That this is not a sleepless fantasy

By the coming light
Leave me here to dream tonight

The flashing in my eyes
Is darkness in disguise
I start to see my life go racing by
Voices from inside
Say fight from where you lie
Don’t let it be your guide right out of life

By the coming light
Leave me here to dream

No, not tonight
No, no, no, not tonight
Leave me here to dream
Tonight

You false light
Hear me well
I’ll send you back to hell

Darkness
Dims the light away
Silently it fades
To flash before another sleepless face
So the night is saved
I defeated fate
I drift away in waves toward the day

I sent the light away
Leave me here to dream

No, not tonight
No, no, no, not tonight
I would never dream
Of the light


2. THE WOLVES

Call her your queen
And lay a bed of roses at her feet
Court the obscene
And lay with the swine

Her pledges and promises
Naked lies that beg your own decline
See no wrong in this
You're drunk on her venomous wine
Poison fills your cup
And when your mouth starts to foam
You trust that you're rightly riled
Frothing bile

Yank the leash, command it to comply
The Wolves are coming
Raise the whip and dare it to defy
The Wolves are coming
You thought you raised a dog, and wonder why
The wolf has bloodlust in his eyes
You’re the trembling prey
Wolves will not obey

Slave in the mines
And praise your masters’ magnanimity
Die for his diamonds
And groan for his gold

Unguarded and tame
Broken by the hypnotizing hold
Think you're high from the flames
But you're feverish out in the cold
Your life is cheaply sold
And then when the coal runs out
And the mountains are stripped and bare
Where's your share?

Yank the leash, command it to comply
The Wolves are coming
Raise the whip and dare it to defy
The Wolves are coming
You thought you raised a dog, and wonder why
The wolf has bloodlust in his eyes
You’re the trembling prey
Wolves will not obey

Hacking and lame
Deny yourself the wanted medicine
The mark in a game
That you think you control
Wager with your soul
And so you howl with the wolves
But the scent on the wind is yours
The bloody track is yours

Yank the leash, command it to comply
The Wolves are coming
Raise the whip and dare it to defy
The Wolves are coming
You thought you raised a dog, and wonder why
The wolf has bloodlust in his eyes
You’re the trembling prey
Wolves will not obey


3. CASTLES IN THE SKY

Hearts gone deaf to the cries
Ringing the death toll of freedom
Blind to pain in our eyes
Marching our way to the Colosseum
They grace a roaring applause
Masking out the voice of reason
Generations have suffered the cause
Justifying castles in the sky

Fortifying Castles In The Sky
Certifying heroes as they die
Why?

Behind a fortress of stone
Towering over the masses
The king looks after his own
Feeding and filling their privileged glasses
They drink the blood of our dead
From a sea of deep denial
Hold your tongue or he'll hand you your head
Pay your tax or get the axe
Respect the castles in the sky

Walls defending castles in the sky
Reprehending castles in the sky
Condescending castles in the sky
Rainbows ending castles in the sky

Far above
Calling us
Peace will come
Everything you're dreaming of
Like a dove
Soon enough
Leave the world to suffer

But why?

Walls defending castles in the sky
Reprehending castles in the sky
Condescending castles in the sky
Rainbows ending castles in the sky
The sky

For them, we die


4. THE YEAR OF THE BLIZZARD

Sleep now my child
We will rest tonight
I am your shelter
From the storm outside
There is no sadness
In our song tonight
So until tomorrow
Say goodnight

At dawn, all I see is darkness
Deep snow surrounds the house
And there’s no getting out

For days, we’re trapped inside this fortress
The doors are frozen locked
The windows icy blocks

I know we won’t get out tomorrow
It seems our freedom’s taken
Replaced by desperation

And as the weeks go by in sorrow
We watch each other starve
And I prepare to carve

At a month’s demand
Our supply surpassed
My secret plan
A grim repast

A chance to stay alive
In this world of frozen light
Hate to see the hunger
In your eyes
Take a piece from me
Even though I’m weakening
You will be alive
Another night

It might be insane
But there’s no other way
Only one can survive
So I’ll keep you alive

Ignoring the pain
I try to sustain
I hope you don’t see
That I’m feeding you… me

Sleep now my child
I will keep you warm
Don’t let your spirits
Be buried by the storm
Just close your eyes
Don’t want you to see
Why you keep living
How much I bleed

So with this knife
I give you life

This is the last time
Come take my heart
Just as the sunshine
Comes to melt the dark

Last meal is given
The child is fed
Now the sun is risen
And I am dead

A chance to stay alive
In this world of frozen light
I took away the hunger
From your eyes
It was all in secrecy
But in piece by piece of me
I have given you
Another life


5. THE SPIDER'S THREAD

In total darkness, slime is the air that I breathe
The stifled choking of sinners is all that I hear
Forever drowning, clawing for life in a bloody sea
But after ages, I feel something new to be near

A thread in the blackness above!

I start the climbing, pulling myself up the thread
Unto the heavens, hand over hand to a great salvation
Up many miles, the Mountain of Needles is small down below
My arms grow tired, ascending the silk to escape damnation

Looking down, I see a line
A thousand sinners close behind
Return to hell
This thread is mine!

Oh! Can I ever hope to recover?
Back into the sea
The heaving depths of my misery

No! Can I hope again to discover
A thread to set me free
To end the torture of history?


6. CRY

An earthen melody
Enchants my ears
An evening symphony of tears hanging in the sky
I dream of better years
A distant sun
I watch the rain and wonder whether you and I can ever

Hope to find that way again
Hope to walk that road together
It could take forever
Wait for all the tears to end

Cry
For what we could have been
Could have that chance again
We won’t know how it ends without one more try
Cry

Before we fade
We turn to grey
Remember why we turned away
Is it too late?
Before we die
You and I
Open wide our eyes
Ready for another day to cry

An echoed memory
Returns to me
A voice is speaking from the river ever flowing by
It washes out my heart
And leaves me cold
I mourn for all the days of old and I wonder can we

Hope to find that way again
Hope to walk that road together
I could wait forever
Counting on the tears to end

Cry
For what we could have been
Could have that chance again
We won’t know how it ends without one more try
Cry

Cry
For what we could have been
This might be the end
At least I found a friend not afraid to cry
Cry


7. GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES

Waning strength feels always more eminent
To those it fails
The mighty, still falling, so muster their armies
And set the sails

In the burning twilight glow
Can’t you see your sun goes down for you?

Look with pity on people less powerful
See them cowered in fear
Say you’ve come to redeem them, but still they don’t know
Just why you’re here

In the empty starless black
Don’t you know your sun is never coming back

The graveyard of empires is calling you
Calling you, it’s calling you
It’s calling you to conquer
The graveyard of empires is calling you
But will you live to see it through?

Over mountains,
Over deserts and over the fields
Crossed the oceans
Crossed the heavens and still no one yields to you

Days and months and years turn to decades
What power you had left is rapidly fading
Alive in the tomb are you laid

“Save us! Save us!
The savage betrayed us!
Save us! Save us!
We’re too great to die,” you pray
For the red of the day

Topple mountains
Clear the deserts
Burn the fields
They still won’t bow to you

Grab your chest, and clutch at the gaping wound
Your bloody shame
Your body will rot with the others before you
It ends the same

At the blinding break of dawn
In the foreign sun you pass forever on

The graveyard of empires is calling you
Calling you, it’s calling you
It’s calling you to conquer
The graveyard of empires is calling you
But no one lives to see it through


8. BURN WITH ME

Won’t be dark tonight
A great despair, we know why
Some say it’s alright
But we all know, that’s a lie

I fear the day that’s coming
Bring back the night to me
Yeah

Voices from the crowd
Said burn the earth, it’s allowed
Chaos coming now
And we all know, it won’t go out

I fear for all tomorrow
Don’t need the sun to see
A world in sleepless sorrow
In flames eternally

Burn with me
By my light, you will see
Burn with me
Paradise will never be
And now in the twilight
I see the smoke rise

Burn with me
By my light, you will see
Burn with me
Paradise will never be
Outside in the twilight
I see the smoke rise

Oh, in fires in the distance
Our sadness glowing
Burning on
Burning on


9. IN YOUR HANDS

Break your back, all the action
Takes your breath away
Grind the gears, after years, it’s
Just another day
A wicked lie told coldly by
Dead voices in the sky
Says you should just obey because they
Own you ‘til you die

They don’t want you to know
They think that you don’t know
It’s an illusion of control

Oh-oh-oh
Only you decide the time is right to
Go-oh-oh
Make a difference to the world around you
No-oh-oh
Don’t let the devils in the sky deceive you
Oh-oh-oh
You have the power now
In your hands

So here’s the plan

Trip the switch, trick the system
Snipe it from inside
This mad machine’s worst enemy
Could be itself tonight
Right behind your tired eyes
Your spirit is the spark
Blast the light, let loose the lightning
Show them you’re in charge!

They don’t want you to know
They think that you don’t want to know
That you decide what they control

Oh-oh-oh
Only you decide the time is right to
Go-oh-oh
Make a difference to the world around you
No-oh-oh
Don’t let the devils in the sky deceive you
Oh-oh-oh
You have the power now
In your hands

Under the circuitry humming
Rings a warning of shame
Soon an unholy cavalry’s coming
Waiting, waiting
You reexamine the riddle
No, it’s never too late
Realize the solution is simple
By your hands escape

Oh-oh-oh
Only you decide the time is right to
Go-oh-oh
Make a difference to the world around you
No-oh-oh
Don’t let the devils in the sky deceive you
Oh-oh-oh
You have the power now
In your hands
