Track Name: New Horizon
The beauty of uncertainty
All our lives are filled with contradictions
We're searching for a fast escape
Chasing dreams and feeding our ambition
Alone inside the house of cards
What's the answer? I don't know the question
Together but we're far apart
Living in a parallel dimension

I need you here
To help me cross the line
There's no return
We'll travel to the edge of time

They found a world not far away
Where mankind can try an expedition
I've been chosen I've been brave
I must leave my life to join this mission
All the people hope in me
Think that I can change their lives
But I am not Jesus
I am scared to death
But I can show no emotions

I need you here
To help me cross the line
There's no return
We'll travel to the edge of time

We're out to find the new horizon
We're here to find the new horizon
Track Name: Crosswords
With a razor blade within my mouth
I hold my breath and start to smile
Till this plane will ever reach the ground
I'm so scared I close my eyes

A dangerous perversion
Tonight I keep the focus on my weird crosswords
I don't wanna die
I'm blind and I'm holding on to my crosswords

You're so beautiful I lost my words
You're a damage in my mind
Lock my sanity within these chords
In your eyes I'm hypnotized

A dangerous perversion
Tonight I keep the focus on my weird crosswords
I don't wanna die
I'm blind and I'm holding on to my crosswords

I'm pretending to be safe and calm
But the world will soon explode out in the sky
collapsing crack blows near the end of fear
And the blood the better arrow left behind

A dangerous perversion
Tonight I keep the focus on my weird crosswords
I don't wanna die
I'm blind and I'm holding on to my crosswords
A clever execution
Tonight I won't be coming home to my strife
Track Name: Not My Enemy
I have waited here for ages
For that moment of redemption to arrive
He has found me scorned and broken
Gave me power over Death and a phantom sword

Every hope I had has frozen
Can't you see what I become?
I don't know who I can trust now anymore

Roaming hungry for the souls
Of all my enemies
Seek revenge redeem my name
And stop this heresy
Searching for my master Kain
And break his Legacy
Still I fail to understand
Who's my true enemy
I'm not your enemy

And I'm not here to destroy you
I'm your right hand
I'm your sword
The true enemy will now come forth

Every time I hunt you down
For every truth yet to be found
For every secret I've unvailed
For every time I felt in despair
I'll fight with you
I'm your right hand
I'm not your enemy
You're not my enemy
Track Name: Life To You
Everyday got the feeling that we're running too fast
Just don't care for the future
Can't remember the past
Everyday without you it's a day that is lost
Cannot heal your pain
Cannot carry the cross
The more I try the more I fail
Cannot stand I could not keep you safe
Safe...

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Just want to see your face
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Don't let this moment strike you down
You can't leave me now

Please come home
We've been waiting here too long
There's a gift for you
I'll dedicate my life to you

All my feeling all my dreams
Just remind me of you
Tears will never dry until they won't come true
If I stop for a while feel the world burning down
Please tell me God
What are you doing now?
Without you here things don't make sense
Don't wanna talk with anybody else
Just got a prayer to protect you
I'm powerless, what else am I to do?

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Just want to hold your hand
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
I feel that you'll survive
I believe it deep inside

Please come home
We've been waiting here too long
There's a gift for you
I'll dedicate my life to you
Please come home
We've been waiting here too long
There's a gift for you
I'm giving all my life to you
To you
Track Name: The Average Scheme
Whatever they say we already know
The average scheme of things to come
Taxes increase, no hope for the young
People are starving and ready for war

You occupy my tv screen
21 years of empty shit
You're already 80 but still hold on
Tied up on that chair covered with gold

We only want to change everything that's wrong
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
We'll deviate from the scheme you draw
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
But you still hold on

Whatever they say we already know
The average scheme of things to come

We only want to change everything that's wrong
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
We'll deviate from the scheme you draw
Can you hear me?
Are you still there?
You still hold on
Track Name: Fall
Though I lost it all I never stop to fall
The void in me is growing strongly
Nothing ever changes cannot feel a thing
No harm no pain no happiness
I stand still
In the dark I'm motionless
Tempted by oblivion
Feeling just so meaningless
Suffering in vain

Counting every single breath that I take
Waiting for a phone call that you won't make
Eternity become my friend
Heaven make me understand

You won't be here when I'll fall
There's nothing left I lost it all
You won't remember me
You won't be here when I'll fall
When I'll fall

Seeking for a single moment of grace
My cruel mind could only picture your face
After all these years I still recall that day
Living with the fear that I might fall again

You won't be here when I'll fall
There's nothing left I lost it all
You won't remember me
You won't be here when I'll fall
When I'll fall
Track Name: To Your Beauty
Sometimes I wonder how it would be
My life without you
So I let my mind go free
And imagine all that gloom
But then I see your face
And you bring me back

You know, my soul has an empty hole
That only you can fill
Heal my heart and all its wounds
And make my days complete
Please stay with me tonight
And for all my life

Your smile your smell your soft sweet skin
I can never have enough
Your kiss your touch keep of alive
Whenever life is tough
Now I understand the true meaning of Love

For everyday that God'll grant me
I'll want to be with you
An Angel come to save my life
And find the best of me
Forever I surrender
To your beauty
Track Name: Time Machine Operators
We tried to open the doors
on new worlds to explore
revealed our deepest secrets
we broke down barriers
we were believers
still waiting for our moment to arrive

Is it too late for these confessions
or am i afraid to lose you all?

Is it all coincidence
too many words have remained unspoken
trying to find the evidence
i know that door will be always open
now i finally realized
you'll be with for my whole existence
we're deceiving life and death
we're time machine operators

Through time and music
we went on cruising
and finally found experience
despite the changes
despite the distance
we keep on playing as time had never passed
Afraid of losing it all

Will all those moments ever come back?
Could this be our last song?

Is it all coincidence
too many words have remained unspoken
trying to find the evidence
i know that door will be always open
now i finally realized
you'll be with for my whole existence
we're deceiving life and death
we're time machine operators

I wake at night
I find it hard to believe
What have become of my life
And what of our dreams
Deep inside me
I swear i pray i scream
There must an escape
From this age of misery
Late at night
I'm still asleep and afraid
But i know there's still hope

Two guitars the drums the bass
hoping those days could last forever
ride the train of memories
time machine operators

Is it all coincidence
too many words have remained unspoken
we're deceiving life and death
we're time machine operators
Track Name: Your Ghost
You didn't believe in me
As I was saying the truth
Regrets maybe broken dreams
And all because of you
You and your dirty intrigues
Your desperate needs
They're overwhelming you
I swear I will not come back
Not after all
All you did to me

I'll never be free
From your ghost
I left when you needed me the most
There's a monster inside me
Hunting controlling devouring me
I look at you and I feel lost

I'm staring at sky at night
I feel so insicure
The future is passing by
I feel I'm getting old
It's taking control over me
I know I can't live
This way anymore
In front of a vicious screen
Wasting my days
The night becomes so long

I'll never be free
From your ghost
I left when you needed me the most
There's a monster inside me
Hunting controlling devouring me
I look at you and I feel lost
Can never be free
From your ghost
From your ghost
Track Name: Outside The Universe
Is there something out there
Is there life outside the border
Will we ever come back?
Will we ever hear the order?

Only dark and silence
Or a place for the dreams of man
A dangerous alliance
Can't remember when it all began

Maybe god is playing
With his dice
Another world we're preying
To find paradise
We travel on a course
Outside the universe

We're taking our chance with history
Accepting our fate regretfully
Wait to see what i have found
I'll leave you on the ground

I'm gonna find you
I'm gonna kick your face
Tell me if it's true
You want to take my place

Infinity surrounds us
And never smiles
It's the end of the world
We're all gonna die!

We're taking our chance with history
Accepting our fate regretfully
Wait to see what i have found
I'll leave you on the ground
Track Name: Faceless Man
I can't decide
And take the step I need to make it right
Enough is enough I'll disappear tomorrow
Help me dissipate away my sorrow
Have to take my choice
Can't wait anymore
It's the beginning of the end

I never thought that I could ever miss you much
I know it's hard to go on separate ways
United as a whole
Never left alone
You took my pain away
Illuminate my soul

I've crossed the line
Moving in a space that's not defined
Stay for a while
I won't let you go away this time
Is it really over?
Where is my last chance?
Is it too late for crying?

I don't wanna be your faceless man
Never gonna feel your skin again
Never gonna cry
Never gonna bend
I don't wanna be your faceless man
Never never never never never!
Track Name: Drelas' Cottage
Part I: Who Are You?
I was finding a passage to the west
After nights in the darkness
Fighting my way through the undead
Can't stand no longer

Halfway i came upon a nice place
Just below the mountains
A vision for my tired eyes
Hope to find some rest tonight

I knocked the door with trust
I cannot stand the frost
Another minute and i'll turn to ice
Someone's living here
But no one seems to hear
I hold my breath and go inside

“who are you? You should not be here”
I better run before i disappear

I stood there as he looked at me
His eyes were on fire
He shot a blast of light to strike me
Can't avoid to be hit

I took the door and ran
Another night begun
Trying desperately to survive
This time i will escape
But i'll be back again
And i'll be prepared to fight

“who are you?
You should not be here”
I better hide before i disappear

Part II: The Pilgrim
As a pilgrim
I went to meet the wise old men
They tought me how
To use my voice and strength
An elder dragon
Descending from the ancient god
Revealed the truth
I learned i was the dragonborn

I forged a weapon
The strongest ever seen
With steel and magic
My enemy could never win
It's time to go now
Don't care about the world's fate
I won't be a hero
I'll focus on my hate

Part III: Forever Cursed
I found him there
Working on the magic desk
And silently
Sneaked on him and hit him first
I saw him fall
And stab his back and his throat
I will recall
His smile as i reclaimed his soul

In Drelas' home
I found my peace and my doom
My mission is done
But evil still lives in these rooms
Forever cursed
His presence hunts me in my dreams
Condemned to live
Carrying his spirit in me
