All Aboard 00:33
[The Conductor:] Awakened by the eclipse, the path to a new kingdom comes to life in the blackened sky. The bridge of stars awaits those who would dare to take the journey. So climb aboard... the train is ready to depart. We will cross the glowing river. We will follow the obsidian map into the world of shadows.

[The Ghost:] From the shackles of the earth We rise up to the realm of dreams A path awakened in the sleeping sky Found the keys for the eclipse And flew away into the black Past the Swan towards infinity [The Ghost + The Hunter:] And while the moon is dark We travel on hand in hand Behind us the earth Fades to black and disappears Take a ride And let the stars be your guide Until the daybreak We follow the planisphere [The Hunter:] Across the bridge of stars Towards a world never seen For now you're free On the wings of a dream Beyond the borderlines Ascending over the skies Like diamonds we'll shine In the ocean divine Remember the day the night slept [The Engineer:] Walking free again Outside the tethers tied to you by death A journey on towards the corners of imagination Cross the river glowing bright And as you find your way Hold on to the map of obsidian [The Hunter + The Engineer:] And while the moon is dark I won't let go of your hand Behind us the earth Fades to black and disappears Take a ride And let the stars be your guide Until the daybreak We follow the planisphere Across the bridge of stars Towards a world never seen For now you're free On the wings of a dream Beyond the borderlines Ascending over the skies Like diamonds we'll shine In the ocean divine Remember the day the night slept [The Ghost:] On towards the southern cross Through mystic constellations I want this dream to last forever [The Engineer:] Forever! [The Hunter:] The pathway down to earth Will fade away behind us And we'll be lost inside forever [The Engineer:] Forever! I never want this night to end Will we wake if morning comes again [The Ghost + The Engineer:] Across the bridge of stars Towards a world never seen For now you're free On the wings of a dream Beyond the borderlines Ascending over the skies Like diamonds we'll shine In the ocean divine So remember the day And while the sunlight sleeps We can become anything We're lost in dreams On a quest for a king On solar wings ascend Imagine life without end For the ghost, for the hunter The migrant and king For the sleepers beside us All sharing the dream Would you shatter the false star And live once again Remember the day the night slept

[The Deceiver:] Drawn through the darkness and into the sky My stolen name vanished and buried Welcomed to stay by an uncanny king His soul so familiar to me [The Migrant:] Drawn to the lighthouse, I heard their voice Their souls shining brighter than stars [The Migrant + The Deceiver:] Walking the paths of this ghostly world Distorted by shades of the past [The Migrant:] Fast asleep As night has stolen dawn This dream won't end The sun will not rise [The Deceiver:] Lost in dreams And while the false star burns We know the dead [The King:] CAN NEVER RETURN FROM THE SKY [The Ghost:] Sleeping and yet I am free and alive Awake though aware we are dreaming [The Hunter:] Keeping the flame of the lighthouse alive Concealed in the hall of the king [The Ghost:] Breaking the death ties, I rise again My sickness and limits are gone [The Ghost + The Hunter:] Walking with you through this ghostly world Until we are reclaimed by dawn [The Hunter:] Fast asleep As night has stolen dawn This dream won't end The sun will not rise [The Ghost:] Lost in dreams And while the false star burns We know the dead [The King:] CAN NEVER RETURN FROM THE SKY [The Engineer:] The station has disappeared One step, and you're trapped by the light Circling through midnight all over again The dead keep on dreaming eternally through night [The Deceiver:] Death was his wish And he found it at last I only appeared as his guide But here in my conscience His words cut me deep [The King:] THE DEAD CANNOT COME BACK TO LIFE [Everyone:] Fast asleep As night has stolen dawn This dream won't end The sun will not rise Lost in dreams And while the false star burns We know the dead Can never return from the sky They'll never return from the sky

[The Engineer:] He wished for death to take him From this world of pain and hatred And through false words of comfort Someone led him there His final lie "It won't be frightening if we go together" Stayed with him Even as he watched him steal his life Woke on the train, afraid and lost Not knowing where he's going At light speed through the sky The earth now out of sight So at the signal he escaped And found a room in darkness A chair and candle in the black With no one there Afraid, alone Betrayed by earth He lights the flame For this new world A star is born In false disguise And soon The kingdom will rise And the candle turned to a lighthouse In the heart of the kingdom of dreams [The King:] THE KING SAID... No one is hurt With everyone here And if we all share one mind There's no need to fear And the beacon shone through the darkness And attracted souls to the light [The King:] AND HE SAID... One will be all And all will be one So let their voices in harmony sing [The King:] LONG LIVE THE KING The lonely room became A grand hall at the dream world's centre His hurt became a crown His chair became a throne He waits to welcome All the souls that stray from heaven's river To warmth and safety The new kings of everyone's home So the migrants came to the lighthouse In the heart of the kingdom of dreams And the lonely king Would welcome them in Make them one, and never to leave And the beacon shone through the darkness And attracted souls to the light All who came to his door Would accept their new form Join the chorus, and joyfully sing [The King:] LONG LIVE THE KING [The Engineer:] Back and forth again The pendulum of time Keeping the dreamers Here in their eternal night [The King:] Don't you leave me here You should not fear the sun Here in my private shell NOW WE ALL ARE ONE [The Engineer:] And so the star will shine The candle is burning Timeless and divine And we see the light All over the kingdom Shining for all time And the lighthouse Will call out to guide New souls towards the star So they can join with us and sing Long live the king [The King:] HAPPILY EVER AFTER Afraid, alone Betrayed by earth He lit the flame For this new world A star was born In false disguise And now The kingdom will rise Now the migrants come to the lighthouse On their journey from skies afar And the lonely king Will welcome them in And absorb them into the star And the flame will shine on forever Drawing souls to the kingdom of dreams And no one will ever be lonely again And as one they will joyfully sing [The King:] LONG LIVE THE KING

Morning 04:43
Waiting in darkness Suspended in time Discorporate and damaged With no other option I fled to the light I've thought of that day Since I left you behind I know that you're down there Reduced to near nothing But barely alive Sealed In cryogenic cold I'll dive into the dark Reanimate your soul Together We will rise up hand in hand This blackened night Are you there Can you hear me In your world where time stands still Sealed from the daylight with only the words Of a promise I have to fulfill Will you know Will you feel me Will you crush your inmost fear Push through the blindness And wait for the light Now that morning's almost here Now in the black star You sleep once again Yet still I will follow I'll enter the dream and ascend As you sleep Beyond this blinded world I'll rise into the void And bring you down to earth Together We will walk on hand in hand This blackened night Are you there Can you hear me In your world where time stands still Sealed from the daylight with only the words Of a promise I have to fulfill Will you know Will you feel me Will you crush your inmost fear Push through the blindness And wait for the light Now that morning's almost here Breaking through the seals that keep Your life within perpetual sleep I'll push on past the boundary And find I will reach the centre of the black I'll thaw your soul and bring you back So wait for me I'll guide you to the light Sealed In cryogenic cold I'll dive into the dark Reanimate your soul Together We will rise up hand in hand This blackened night I'll wake you from your sleep Beyond this blinded world I'll rise into the void And bring you down to earth Together We will walk on hand in hand This blackened night Are you there Can you hear me In your world where time stands still Sealed from the daylight with only the words Of a promise I have to fulfill Will you know Will you feel me Will you crush your inmost fear Push through the blindness And wait for the light Now that morning's coming Light is dawning Morning's almost here

[The Hunter:] Drawn to the false star of illusion Like travellers before But now it's time to leave the kingdom To face the tainted throne [The Engineer:] The king's in his palace Vengeance and malice Poison his heart and tie him down We rise from confusion Fight his delusion Taking his undeserved crown [The Engineer + The Hunter:] We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of false hope for all Completing the circle Escaping the dreamworld And this heaven shall fall [The Ghost:] Tonight We're sounding the cry The kingdom will die We'll pull back the curtain And see through the lie I'll burn in the night I'll light up the sky You'll see And I'll be the scorpion's fire [The Engineer:] Down in the dark well all alone now The scorpion would die No chance to give another creature Just one more day of life [The Ghost:] He prayed for his next birth To give life to all earth Lit up the sky in crimson glow The end of this heaven Echoes the legend I am that scorpion now [The Engineer + The Hunter:] We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of false hope for all Completing the circle Escaping the dreamworld And this heaven shall fall [The Ghost:] Tonight We're sounding the cry The kingdom will die We'll pull back the curtain And see through the lie I'll burn in the night I'll light up the sky You'll see And I'll be the scorpion's fire [The Migrant:] The false star that brought me here Shining in lies [The King:] If you would hurt the King And steal our flame Then you must die [The Migrant:] The light expires And truth will return [The King:] Still wrapped in this hurt [The Migrant:] One soul sparks the fire [The Migrant + The King:] And everything burns [The Conductor:] And so the dream of the King comes to an end with the story he loved, And the light of the Scorpion's Fire will guide those lost in the dark towards the dawn. Behind him the false star shatters forever, And the dreamers carry him on through the morning sky. [The Ghost + The Hunter:] Welcome to the eclipse of the star The grand illusion falling so far On this night we shatter the lie And we see the dawn again [The Deceiver:] We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of hope for the blind Completing the circle Escaping the nightmare And the secret we'd find At last The sins of the past Tonight are unmasked The haunting inside me Will always outlast We're close to the end I promise, my friend You'll see me again I'm coming soon [The Engineer + The Hunter:] We're razing the kingdom We'll burn down the lighthouse A beacon of false hope for all Completing the circle Escaping the dreamworld And this heaven shall fall [The Ghost:] Tonight We're sounding the cry The kingdom will die We'll pull back the curtain And see through the lie I'll burn in the night I'll light up the sky You'll see And I'll be the scorpion's fire And the fire in the lighthouse will burn And the kingdom of dreams will burn For my friends once again I will burn And the scorpion's fire will burn

[The Migrant] There was a time when I was scared like you I clung to memories both bad and good But then I saw a chance to live again Born from the ending of a world Hand in hand we travel on Because you can't stay here afraid Never knowing where we're going On this interstellar train An adventure through the universe Beyond the bridge of stars Till the call of earth Will bring us back again On our journey through the silent stars I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe We know that in the end The sun will rise again And tomorrow will be a good day All too soon it was my time to leave I never knew that you could be so hurt And still you're hiding something deep inside Beneath your hatred of the world I have found a memory waiting At the universe's end A memento of a life cut short The time we spent as friends And now even though you turn your back Deny I ever was I remember you And I'll be back again On our journey through the silent stars I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe We know that in the end The sun will rise again And tomorrow will be a good day [The Engineer] This night One holy night On the galactic railroad Only you can decide When a new day dawns [Everyone] As we make our way Across the astral plane All our memories fly away The sparks we leave behind Will give the stars their shine As our pain is washed away Down the river we flow Till there's nowhere to go Then we fall to earth newborn And live again [The Migrant] On our journey through the silent stars I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe We know that in the end The sun will rise again And tomorrow will come Take my hand and then we'll fly away I'll show you there's nothing left to be afraid of now Up to the stars ascend The story finally ends And tomorrow we'll all meet again We'll all meet again [The Conductor] Now untangled from your fear, your journey truly begins. As you travel the infinite skies, your pain and regrets will fall away, Their glowing fragments leaving the stars shining behind you. There is no need to be afraid any more. Once the last memory is gone and you give your name back to the stars, I will see your safe return. Farewell... until we meet again.

Prophet of the sky Red demonic eye Calling out for the lost ones The gate to other worlds The covenant of blood Apostle of the violet rose With a bloody crimson eye Accursed flesh will come alive And altered minds around him See the echoes of the eulogy of doom Choked by demon spores Read the dark grimoire The flesh and blood of the innocent Avatar divine The cosmic soup of time The eye of judgement sees us all Through his bloody crimson eye He sees the gate is open wide In fury he will fly To see the echoes of the end Chaotic wings of the reaper Chasing disaster Painting the skies in flame Holy angel of fire Flies ever higher Screaming his name And again he'll rise from the cage of ice The crimson angel of Judecca On the edge of madness, frozen in time Awakened by the tree of blight Summoned again through fire and flame On his bloody wings he will fly! Chaotic wings of the reaper Chasing disaster Painting the skies in flame Holy angel of fire Flies ever higher Screaming his name And again he'll rise from the cage of ice The crimson angel of Judecca On the edge of madness, frozen in time Awakened by the tree of blight On bloody wings of hope I see salvation is coming The star of solitude Rising up in the sky Like the wings of an angel So come with me If we run forever we'll find him A fallen angel, his mad love Awakens once more The world yet to come
