1. MERCYSIDE

You can hate me for
All the things I do
You should let my heart go
Whatever you decide to do
You can make me bleed
You can make me cry
You can make me fall
You can make me live or die
And I wonder how
And you wonder why

For years the world has been falling apart
But we're tied up by words
The surface is smooth and cold
But underneath the blood always boils

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Everytime
We're growing colder
Digging deeper in our minds

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Everytime
We're growing colder
Digging deeper
In our minds

You laughed, but your smile never reached your eyes
You cried, but your eyes never shed a tear
And I wonder how
You laughed, and you untied your hair
There are things to do
Things we never could tell

For years the world has been falling apart
But we're tied up by words
The surface is smooth and cold
But underneath the blood always boils

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Everytime
We're growing colder
Digging deeper in our minds

Name me
Use me
Blame me
Every time you hurt
Your favours are not what I deserve

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Everytime
We're growing colder
Digging deeper in our minds

It's getting harder
Getting worse now
Everytime
We're growing colder
Digging deeper in our minds


2. SANGUINE SKY

My blood is tainted ; azure blue
A setting sun bleeding
Into an ocean of tears, for you
Into an ocean of tears for you

It's an exodus from the dark
The night is breathing ;the night is exhaling
Falling, falling - up the staircase
Towards the moon, the stars,
And the Venus-kissed Mars

Blood runs south
As the days grow darker
And this fight is eating at me
I see the dead awaken
My fate forsaken ; I'm free

I am talking on a hidden line
She says she's feeding ; she says she's dead
She says - there is a downward spiral
From the moon, the stars,
The ever-warring Mars

Blood runs south
As the days grow darker
And this fight is eating at me
I see the dead awaken
My fate forsaken ; I'm free

Blood runs south
As the days grow darker
And this fight is eating at me
I see the dead awaken
My fate forsaken ; I'm free


3. OPEN GROUND

Digging in the mound
Dig in the mud
Sweat streams down my face
My spit taste like blood

Hide me with locks from your hair
I cannot breath

Bleeding ...
Dying ...
Digging ...
Falling apart
The torch went out
The room went dark

Running in the fog
Crawling through the mud
Tears fall down my face
My spit tastes like blood

Cover me with locks from your hair

Bleeding ...
Dying ...
Digging ...
Falling apart
The torch went out
The room went dark

Insanity is always near

Deep in my bag full of fear
I cannot see
The pain that trigged your screams
I cannot see

Bleeding ...
Dying ...
Digging ...
Falling apart
The torch went out
The room went dark

Bleeding ...
Dying ...
Digging ...
Falling apart
The torch went out
The room went dark

From the corner of my eye
I feel them closing in
I know they caught in the scent of me
And then they went for me

I chose for you to stay with me


4. THE RAVENS

Only ashes and bones remain
My hair is wet, my eyes are sore
The past has been fed to the flames
I cannot breathe anymore

I try to stand on my feet, but I fall
I try to walk, but I crawl
Life - as we knew it, is over
And you are gone
Forever gone ...

I will not bend to a cross
I will not kneel at your feet

Greed and anger
Made us younger
Couldn't save us when the tower fell
All my strength and all my hunger
All is lost
And none will live to tell

In the ruins of days gone by
Of young affection and velvet sky
A slave to greed ...
I do not feel regret anymore
I sense a presence of birds
Encircling me ...
And I am gone
Forever gone ...

I will not bend to a cross
I will not kneel at your feet

Greed and anger
Made us younger
Couldn't save us when the tower fell
All my strength and all my hunger
All is lost
And none will live to tell

Til jord skal vi bli
Til jord skal vi bli

Dark is the night
Dead is the moon
I will not kneel
I will not kneel

I'd rather die
Facing my doom
I will not kneel
I will not kneel


5. DESTINATION DEPARTURE

Caressing the anger
Nothing will ever be the same again
At you are most beautiful
At you are most beautiful

This is my destination
Left behind in desolation
At you are most beautiful
At you are most beautiful

Leave me
You talk like you know
But you don't and it shows
She should have outlived me
I listened before but I can't anymore
So just leave me
I tried so hard to find something
That I could believe in
But there's nothing there
So there's nothing to fear

Who's gonna be here ?
If you want me to leave ?
Who's gonna be here ?

Caressing the anger
This is my destination
At you are most beautiful
At you are most beautiful

Leave me
You talk like you know
But you don't and it shows
She should have outlived me
I listened before but I can't anymore
So just leave me
I tried so hard to find something
That I could believe in
But there's nothing there and
There's no one who cares

Who's gonna be here
If you want me to leave ?
Who's gonna be here
If you want me to leave ?
Who's gonna let it
When you cannot make it stop ?
Can you hang on for today ?


6. DOWN

My violent mood swings peak
And my hands are as heavy as rocks
I have no time and no space
I'm falling behind
Just take me home

My patience has all run out
And I feel like yelling ; - it is too much
I have abandonned all charm and all grace
I have fallen behind
There is no god

The ight is cursed
Loud and blurred
Still it rains
Still it rains
It rains like hell
It rains like hell

Rain on empty shells
Rain on empty shells

My violent mood swings peak
And my hands are as heavy as rocks
I have no time and no space
I have fallen behind
There is no god

The ight is cursed
Loud and blurred
Still it rains
Still it rains
It rains like hell
It rains like hell

Rain on empty shells
Rain on empty shells

Rain
It rains like hell
It rains like hell
It rains like hell

Rain on empty shells
Rain on empty shells

Screaming voices
Ring in my hears
I don't want to know their names


7. FATE

I've been trying to participate in masquerades
The throne's been empty for too long
Paradise for those who play along and the fortunate ones

I've been listening to the voice at night
And he is right
I am the chosen one
And my shepherd, he has paid my ride
I will go with a smile

I've been begging for the public eye
Now watch me fly
Can you see what I've become
So expose me - I shall be released
When the flesh paints the street

I was walking through the valley of the living dead
Did not count the tears I Shed
Always chasing those elusive dreams
A drop of blood in the street


8. LOTUS

When the morning weeps
And the sky is near
And the road you choose
By my hand is lead

In the morning light
All is clean and young
And the spider webs
Shine like silver threads

But you must not fear the dark
I will watch over your sleep
Until the morning comes
All woods have to fail
I will, I will …
I will watch over your sleep

Lead me
Please guide me
Unchain me
Untie me

I see your shadow
Your shape on the wall
But I cannot hear you voice when it calls
Can you tell dreams from reality ?
Can you tell sense from insanity ?

Sometimes it all melts down
And mix into half-lies
Half-lies

But you must not fear the dark
I will watch over your sleep
Until the morning comes
All woods have to fail
I will, I will …
I will watch over your sleep

But you must not fear the dark
I will watch over your sleep
Until the morning comes
All woods have to fail
I will, I will …
I will watch over your sleep


9. SACRILEGE

Millions crusading against mocking heresy
Madmen race to enforce the book that answers all our needs
Tongues tuned with razorblades teach us divine misdeeds
Our clerics will kill to make us stay down on our knees

Another war is over
And the pain is almost gone
Each wound has been healing
We’re so eager to move on
Tongues tunes with razorblades
Still teach divine misdeeds
Our clerics will kill to make us stay down on your knees


10. IN THE WAKE

Never knew quite when it stopped
Nor when it began
Just a chain of happenings
Years floating
Days passing by

Falling in and out of madness
Walking on the edge
Pretending
Faking strength
Hiding behind smiles

Never knew quite when it died
Nor when it was torn

Just a chain of bad ideas
Years floating
Days passing by
You may think time stands still, it does not
It disappears
In the wake

Whatever sense it makes
We never learn from our mistakes
Whatever comfort it might bring
Nothingness embraces everything


11. DEADLANDS

I failed to impress you, and you
Feel free to abuse me
All has been in vain
We're through
So please stop pretending
Years I spentwerea wasted on you

Words have been spoken
My chains have been broken
This street has an end, I have failed
Never will again

My life was invaded by you
This image of straws that break against the wind
We're through
But the world keeps spinning
Endlessly I have no answers for you

Weight off my shoulders
Unleashed
No more hiding …
Leaving deadlands
Release me

Words have been spoken
My chains have been broken
This street has an end, I have failed
Never will again

On your own
Bitter and old

Dead and gone
Carved in stone

Words have been spoken
My chains have been broken
This street has an end, I have failed
Never will again
