Track Name: Carnival
In my dreams I've been seeing
Something strange
Hidden in shadows, I might have seen this before.

Why have I kept lingering
abominated with those thoughts, why?


Where will my thoughts meet her
when will this game end?
I kept on beliving but I fell hard


You tried harder to break me,
I refused to see
enchanted by weigtless streams
of kinves that cut trhough flesh

Why have I kept lingering
abominated with those thoughts, why?


Where will my thoughts meet her
when will this game end?
I kept on beliving but I fell hard

Look deep into my eyes
I can't hide
Sentenced to my demise, by you my dear


Cause I knew, one day you'll leave me
but I'll sill be strong,
I promised myself to keep moving on


You tried to destroy me
but I still stand firm
This won't get me
out of this world

You never participate
on reason's side
You just watch things slip away,
you cannot deny
Track Name: Carousel
Getting inside you
Reaching for your dreams
Who is on the other side?
The heart doesn't ever lie.

Forcing your eyes to see
what was never seen
How will you find your way?
Fall to your knees and pray!

Take your hands off me!
You're afraid to take a chance.
If you do believe
Take the step to entrance

Take your hands of me!
It's your time to undertake
If you are ready
No more wasy to overtake

We’re in this together trapped godforsaken
Turning out of control,leaving in your eyes
Its too late to stop now,no exit, no escape.
The carousel got a hold of your soul tonight

Whisper in my ears
Your real inner needs
Will you take the next ride?
You know there's nowhere to hide

Take your hands off me!
You've been driven to despair
If you want to see
outlast the eternal nightmare

We’re in this together trapped godforsaken
Turning out of control,leaving in your eyes
Its too late to stop now,no exit, no escape.
The carousel got a hold of your soul tonight.
Track Name: Dark Woods
I'm following you
It's cold, moon shines through the trees
Wind softly blows the orphan leaves

My body is glowing
like dancing rows of lights, it's dark
but I feel something that I can not take in

Act out of fear
How long must you suffer?
Hunting is an art and I am the master

I hear your voices
inside my head you told me that I have
to kill to prove that i'm prepared


Dark woods tell me your secrets!
Forbidden fruit is the sweetest
I must fill the emptiness
I'm untaken by the consequence
Dark woods lead me to pleasures!
Show me the unseen treasures
No one will ever know
Anyone else but me and you.


This is the moment
The chance, I've been waiting for years
the key of myself is in front of me

Hold on my breath
For no more I can't stand still
You can kill the dreamer but not the dream

Arrow draws your blood
I see terror in your eyes
Don't try to run away
Don't try to run away
You are tired my ...

PREY

There's no reason to fight
Fear in your eyes is not a surprise
Seen this a million times,
Screaming sounds under a calm (night)

Being a man in a pointless world,
only your mind is the gate,
scornful shadows will never know,
clemency - And your heart is brave.


Dark woods tell me your secrets!
Forbidden fruit is the sweetest
I must fill the emptiness
I'm untaken by the consequence
Dark woods lead me to pleasures!
Show me the unseen treasures
No one will ever know
Anyone else but me and you.
Track Name: Empire
I never wanted this everlasting fight
Became emotionless,
This was the only way you left me

What if I lose, what if I fail?
I haver strived all my life alone in this frame.


Follow my lead, don’t care
if you live or die, it doesn't matter.
Do what I want ,Or I take away
Everything you loved one day
Follow my lead, Do what I want
like yesterday you took my commands
I build an empire and you're the slave
incapable puppet on a string


We gave everything, sacrificed our life
But now we're dancing between emptiness and love

What if I lose, what if I fail?
I haver strived all my life alone in this frame.


We want to hold on till the end
But with trust also future dies


We can't follow a man that kills love
We don't let his hurt multiply on us
We won't let fear rule us to death
We can't watch our souls dissolve

We are the force, we are one
we can fight a path into the light
Not only sick, a sick and weak mind
that's all you are


Follow my lead, don’t care
if you live or die, it doesn't matter.
Do what I want ,Or I take away
Everything you loved one day
Follow my lead, Do what I want
like yesterday you took my commands
I build an empire and you're the slave
incapable puppet on a string
Track Name: Bittersweet Irony
I looked into those sparkling eyes
Into a soul that never dies,
I drowned myself in truth and grace
Radiating from her face.

Deep in those eyes I saw a fire
Of goodness, love, that won't expire
Its cleansing heat has made her pure
I fell in love right there for sure


You are the best I've ever met
The One I'll never forget
Like a lone rose on the peak,
Beautifully made and unique.


The times to come were rain and fire
Our hearts seemed safe behind barbed wire
We lived in tunnels and choked in puddles
Then lost our heads in all the muddles

We hoped and feared, we died and cried,
Our only hope Christ Crucified
This chapter ends a burning forest
Buries our hearts in ashes to rest


You are the best I've ever met
The One I'll never forget
Like a lone rose on the peak,
Beautifully made and unique.

You are the only I've ever met
The One I'll never forget
Like a rose on the peak,
Beautifully made and unique.


When I cast my eyes on our story
I watch the face of black irony
Though it whispers "be bitter, be free"
I trust my God and I will see


You've been the only I've ever met
The One I'll never forget
But now it's not in our hands,
it is not in our hands!
