They paint the world full of shadows They plant the seeds of fear And it's all you hear They keep on telling you where to stand Just stay close to the light Their light When nonconformity is crime From the shadows we shall rise As the dragons of their tales They have chosen our roles to play Look out! Here be dragons We are all the same We just don't play the game your way Look out! Solo: Virnes Solo: Pettersson Solo: Koskinen Now you see what lurks in the dark Discovery and chance to be yourself To find yourself No more leaning on pre-made rules Some tales are written by the fools Let these words be heard We will rise again

Scanning the horizon now The unknown stretches all around Counting back the days again Feels like an eternity has passed And so we travelled on and on Out of the stranger skies The awe and fear that binds us now Bears no disguise And so we travelled on and on Out of the stranger skies From the shadows, to the light And into the dark again This could be the end of us This could be a new beginning How much further can we go? No way that we could know We drift away in peace Yet deep down we feel There's more to this tale Quietly we wait Again Stranded on the edge of the world Beyond the point of no return Breathing in the foreign air Death can be the healer of our wounds Send a message to my love We sailed so high above and lost our way back home Solo: Virnes Solo: Pettersson Solo: Virnes / Pettersson This could be the end of us This could be a new beginning How much further can we go? No way that we could know We drift away in peace Yet deep down I know There's no place like home Anxiously I wait Again and again

Whispering voices infecting my mind This grinding feeling cripples, I'm blind You tried to tell me that everything's alright To me it was only another lie Last time you went to horizon I saw the flame in your eyes To me the words that you said felt like poison Only thing left is bittering sorrow and the fear of tomorrow Day after day I must carry on Sleepless nights from dusk till dawn Future unknown is driving me insane How can I handle all this pain? Solo: Pettersson / Virnes

You’re lost and ignorant Yet you're the one guiding our way Swallow your pride or you might choke Wasting is the function Toast for victory, the race has just begun This life was a lesson, yet you never learned a thing Last traces of sanity blown away by the wind Succeeding was never an option for you Sadistic joy as the confident man stumbles down from his imaginary throne Hopes and dreams shattered like glass Facts and truth abandoned like trash No blaze of glory as you're going down The fire in your heart won't guide you through the dark If you choke it with greed your might will never be free

By god, once I had the flame When did my life turn this way? Take me to my past again to see The golden days of youth Innocence and dreams of silver Now rusted in the rain When did I begin to see the hatred and the misery that drives my world into the sea again and again My innocence will live to die again just to die and live again just when I believed in me God damn, I know things have to change Nothing will ever stay the same Feeling more confused as time goes by The darkened days of now I know I have to find the way Back to my flame Solo: Virnes Solo: Virnes / Pettersson If I take this path again It'll take me all the way again If I go and start again It'll take me back again and again Again and again Again and again!

In solitude, is he wasting his life? A broken man, the owner of pride So deep in the sea of dreams The strings have been cut, and now he's out of reach He's a failure by their rotten eyes Master of his art follows his heart the weeping victims of his desire Wolf among the sheep He's a failure by their rotten eyes Master of his art follows his heart the weeping victims of his desire Outcast of the insane herd Desperate dreamer never reaches his goal Like the Holy Grail never to be found These words crafted from his pain Without the art, it's just suffering in vain Solo: Koskinen He's a failure by their rotten eyes Master of his art follows his heart, even though it's hard The weeping victims of his desire Outcast of the insane herd

No time to waste, there's a day for me to seize I have a dream and now it's time to set it free No locks or chains exist in my mind anymore My will is strong and will be strong for evermore See how I run Once I was losing myself Abusing myself On this ocean of changes We all struggle to find something to keep our hopes alive and reaching for the skies On this ocean of madness We are drifting along To find a place to belong and some peace of mind, I run! Race for the sun My sins come undone one day And today I run Race for the sun! Run! Race for the sun! And now the pain is almost gone No longer does this shadow claim me whole Resolute I stride upon this endless stream of light And harbour all that was, never to be again! My story begins Once I was breaking myself Degrading myself Solo: Virnes Solo: Pettersson The story goes on No more abusing myself I've broken the spell
8.
These people live underground They've never seen the sun With time they've come to believe; the surface ain't even real But among the sheep is a brave young man He has a dream and a plan He'll pierce through the sky a bringer of brighter tomorrow And the light will shine free from the chains of this darkness that follows Quit dreaming and do your job There's nothing up above Said the old and the wise But he had seen the light And the light burns on in his heart Craving for freedom, craving for open skies Solo: Virnes
9.
Red leaves are falling to the ground There's no reason for us to be proud no singing birds in the trees No chance for us to break free The grass was greener in the good old days We chose wrong and life went dreadful ways Try to hold on to your dreams of youth Try to forget the inevitable doom Take a look at this bleeding land We only got this one chance Take a look at this bleeding land Is this what we really wanted? Solo: Pettersson It's time to start all over again Put out the fires and let the nature reign And maybe someday we'll understand The cost of our actions lost to the sand Solo: Pettersson

I'm standing alone on the edge, the edge of my fears and fantasies Courage and wisdom, my strength, unravel the fate before my eyes Out there's a world full of tales of darkness, of light, of sorrow and joy and chances to take or to pass The book of my tales is opening But where can I find the strength to go on if the burden is too much for me? Evil is there, always around in the sky, on the land and the sea Facing the storm, I must carry on as the past keeps fading away A new chapter's born in the rays of the dawn, I go! Solo: Virnes But howling winds call from the north, carrying the grains of the ancient feats I glance at the sky for a sign, visions of heroes of days gone by The flame of life grows within me, feels like I'm finally free But the pages keep turning so fast The ink of my life slowly drips away But where can I find the strength to go on If the time takes the better of me? My life will be there, always around in the sky, on the land and the sea Facing the storm, I must carry on as my time keeps fading away A new chapter's born in the rays of the dawn, I go! Solo: Virnes Where can I find the strength to go on? Time will wait for no man My tale has just begun But now I fear the last page
