Track Name: Hand of Fate
I am a god in my own world
I am the maker of it all
No evil, no wrong can ever be done
No hatred, no conflict and no war

I have no form, I watch from the sky
Writing the future of your lives
Without my will, the world would die
I have it crafted in my mind

I'm the creator, I'm the one
Bringing to life a perfect dream
Somewhere to go when I'm alone
Somewhere only I can see

I have no form, I watch from the sky
Writing the future of your lives
I cannot join my own paradise
Watching you through my world's eyes

I am the one who gave you life
I have the power to create
You are the ones that I will guide
With my iron hand of fate

I have them all held in my head
People, the places and the time
So let me take you by the hand
Lead you to this world of mine

More than you could ever think to dream
Crafted by my hand
And yet you cannot know who I am
You will never understand

That I am the one who gave you life
I have the power to create
You are the ones that I will guide
With my iron hand...
I am the one who gave you life
I have the power to create
You are the ones that I will guide
With my iron hand of fate
Iron hand of fate
Iron hand of fate
Track Name: Open Your Eyes
If you had the chance to reinvent yourself
Let go of the memories that remain
Have you ever wanted for another time
To leave the past behind and start again

If you had the chance to leave behind your life
Break free of your primitive dark shell
Craft your every wish of how you want to be
And take on a new form in a new world

We can make you better
Than you've ever been before
Never question why
You will never want to leave
But to wake up from the dream
You must only open your eyes

Overlook the falsehood that you've heard of us
Even though you've hated for so long
Don't you feel a secret doubt that's pushing you
A fascination telling you you're wrong

They taught you to despise
And told you all their lies
But we're here, we'll never let you go
Forget what you've heard
Unlearn what you have learned
The unreal is closer than you know

We can make you stronger
Than you've ever been before
Never question why
You will never want to leave
But to wake up from the dream
You must only open your eyes

Escape the walls that you built around yourself
The constructs of our normal world
Now you can find who you truly are inside
Don't be afraid to let them know

Open your heart
Open your mind
Spread the wings we've given you
And fly into the dream
Sanctuary you'll find
Your body left behind
Ready for the day you're back
If you return at all

Once you have tasted perfection
You will never want to return
Innocence and inhibition left far behind
You will never be alone

We can make you better
Than you've ever been before
Never question why
You will never want to leave
But to wake up from the dream
You must only open your eyes

We can make you perfect
Like you've never been before
You will never question why
But our world is just a dream
And if you wish for your return
You must only open your eyes
Track Name: A Thousand Lives
A thousand lives to choose between
A million worlds in which to be
I watch your life, and though you aren't real
You can come back again and live my dream

You are a mystery - we'll never know where you exist
Such a proud enigma - as you look back at us

I have seen you all my life
Existing there instead of me
With each of you a gateway to a world I want to hide
And you appear again to follow me

As we see the perfect life you lead
You're a king in all the worlds you've seen
And the power of thought that we give you
Sustains your life behind the screen

A million of us watch your life
In your emotion we all share
Sides of good and evil, sides of right and wrong
Life is that simple for you there

You are a mystery - we'll never know where you exist
Such a proud enigma - as you look back at us

Savior of a thousand worlds
You can choose your time
I have seen you disappear and live again
And I see you, want to be you
But I know that in the end
We live a thousand worlds away

I want to be the hero of the hour
To be the star in everybody's eyes
And when they see my image running through the sky
Then they will know that I am still alive

[Instrumental: Canon in D]

Wouldn't you like to live as me
For just a day of your life
I'll let you taste the world you crave
For just a moment in time

I want to be the hero of the hour
To be the star in everybody's eyes
And when they see my image running through the sky
Then they will know that I am still alive

I want to be the hero of the hour
To be the star in everybody's eyes
And when they see my image running through the sky
Then they will know that I am still alive

The hero with a thousand lives
A hero who could never die
I see you running through the sky
But I must remain here
Track Name: Lazarus
You are the one who never lived
Although I saw your every minute in my mind
The visions of your life I've seen
But now they're fading, you were never meant to die

The light of my obsession
A victim of oppression
Freedom you have earned
We made the world together
And it should be forever
You must now return

Now these memories won't let me
Live my life alone
This touch will heal your lifeless heart
Revive your broken bones
I will not let you rest in peace
While I have life to give
And through the power I have made
Forever you shall live

You are the one who freed my mind
You made me realize who I was through all this time
An icon of my fantasy
But all this time I didn't know that you could die

In time I heard your calling
And then I saw you falling
Into dreams so deep
And trapped in time I'll keep you
Until the day I reach you
Wake you from your deadly sleep

Now these memories won't let me
Live my life alone
This touch will heal your lifeless heart
Revive your broken bones
I will not let you rest in peace
While I have life to give
And through the power I have made
Forever you shall live

Through worlds divided
We'll be united
Infinity before you, forever in your wake
We shall be together
Still not forever
A fragment of your lifespan
For I am now the one who will die

Memories won't let me
Live my life alone
This touch will heal your lifeless heart
Revive your broken bones
I will not let you rest in peace
While I have life to give
And through the power I have made
Forever

I will reach you from the other side
The world that you have seen
Recognize my voice, open your eyes
And wake up from your dream
Then the fanfare will be heard
To let them know that you're alive
Scream the victory across the world
I brought you back to life
Track Name: Eye of the Beholder
Trapped in our corners of the world
And never coming out
We're falling deeper
Hiding behind our secret lives
For fear of them knowing who we are

The beauty of the world
Is not what you can see
But still you will attack what you don't know

I will be there to defend
I will save the others from their shame
To live and let live, in the end
In the eye of the beholder, we are all the same

Spreading their anger everywhere
Ignorance and hate is all I see
From all these places
Never give up, I'll stand forever
To save them from what I used to be

No matter what I do
There'll still be more of you
The ones who would destroy what they don't know
But no one was born to be less than you
Don't attack because of your own fear

I will be there to defend
I will save the others from your blame
To live and let live, in the end
In the eye of the beholder, we are all the same

If you won't stop the war
I'll fight forevermore
My words shall be my sword
As I defend this reality

I will be there to defend
I will save the others from your hate
To live and let live, in the end
In the eye of the beholder

I will always be there to defend
I will save the others from their shame
To live and let live, in the end
In the eye of the beholder, we are all the same

Eye of the beholder
Don't be afraid
Born to be the ones we are
Eye of the beholder
Track Name: The Fallen Angel
She came out of nowhere
We found her that day
Defenceless and helpless
On earth where she lay
How were we ever to know
The secret we'd find
Or the life - From the beginning
To be one of a kind

And the glow of the stars upon her skin
The light shining from the heart
A sign of the soul and mind within
Was sent to us from the stars

I am your angel, sent from the sky
Live with your hatred, suffer your lies
Watching your world, fearing your fall
How can I save you all

I have nothing but hatred
For those who destroy
The lives we were given
Our peace and our joy
Why must you hurt a life
That comes only one time
How can you harm a being
Made to be one of a kind

And the glow of the stars upon her skin
The light shining from the heart
A sign of the soul and mind within
Was sent to us from the stars

I am your angel, sent from the sky
Live with your hatred, suffer your lies
Watching your world, fearing your fall
How can I save you all

I will build a home for those rejected by the world
Place of perfect peace and understanding of ourselves
In my realm there will be unending tolerance of all
No matter who or where the pasts we came from were

Beautiful madness
Sign of my sadness
The violence you have known
Poisons your mind
There is a reason
For your rejection
A mind of perfect hatred
Lives and cannot ever be replaced

This world you crave
Perfect and free
Can never become true
For all your race
Jealous, they hate
The spirit lives in you

[Instrumental: Tarantella]

Born from hate, I can never create
A perfect paradise
The love of my mind I'll leave behind
The shell of my disguise
Now I see there can never exist
A perfect way to be
The hate of your kind I'll leave behind
And I will fade away

For no one will know
For no one will hear
I'll rise into darkness
And slowly disappear
And no one will find
And no one will see
The tale of this world
Or what it did to me

I am your angel, sent from the sky
Live with your hatred, suffer your lies
Trapped in your world, watching your fall
I'll never save you all

Dead to the world, I will be free
Gone from this time, returning some day
I will be there, lost and unseen
Hoping again to make a fallen angel's dream
Track Name: Forever
I came upon your world alone
The unreal planet that you owned
You taught me everything I know
You showed me life meant so much more
Than I had ever thought before
I saw a place where I belonged

Now we stand together
In the wasteland you have made
Twisted and distorted by your hand
I thought you and I
Our perfect worlds were the same
I thought you and I could understand
We're building a world from our hearts

I never knew of your intent
I followed others that you sent
Gave me the key to who I am
This is what you've made me through your words
You aren't what I thought at first
This tarnished heart of gold I have

Now I see the future
Of the world we had made
Twisted and distorted by your hand
I thought you and I
Our perfect worlds were the same
I thought you and I could understand

Oh, you said forever I'd be
Is this how perfection rewards me
Now the world I was promised
Has gone from my grasp
It fades to the past
Forever doesn't last

Now I'm out on my own
You showed me the way
The path through the endless skies
Now I am the one to find
I'll build my kingdom
In my own paradise

Now - I see the future
Of the world we had made
Twisted and distorted by your hand
I thought you and I
Our perfect worlds were the same
I thought you and I could understand

Oh, you said forever I'd be
Is this how perfection rewards me
Now the world I was promised
Has gone from my grasp
It fades to the past
Forever doesn't last

You said forever I'd be
Is this how perfection rewards me
Now the world I was promised
I've had to let go
I'll let them all know
Forever doesn't last
Track Name: My Kingdom - i - Entrance
Painted in my words
I outline their lives
Each one of them unique
A star behind my eyes

The passage to my mind
Locked for eternity
I will give you the key
To the kingdom I see
For if it's never found
Then the world dies with me

We are the leaders of our lives
Together we shall never die

At the end of the passage to my mind
There is a kingdom with an empty throne for years
Somewhere in time there is a place where we can be
Away from pain and fear

And in the end it will appear
The only sacrifice you'll make
A moment of your life
To leave your world behind
And finally you'll find
My kingdom
Track Name: My Kingdom - ii - Rise Above
Fear is all I see
You were made to be controlled
Can't see the signs
But they're there for us all
Society of blame
We will go to any length
Where empathy is weakness
And cruelty is strength

And we wish for the world we cannot have
Wherever our minds are led
And we search for a way to leave this place
Where trust and truth are dead

You can never change
You were made to hate and fear
Can't see the light
Through your blindfolded eyes
No good deed goes unpunished
By your hatred and your greed
Your selfish way of thinking
Will never be erased

Responsibility is something
That you never had to learn
A world that taught you were a king
Proud of your ignorance
And feeding on the other people's fear
I see there's no place for me here

Rise above your cheating world
Defeat your misery
I will lead you by the hand
And show another way

Pity and sympathy are feelings
That you never had to learn
A world that taught you were a king
Proud of your gluttony
And feeding on the other people's grief
Am I the only one who sees

I will rise above your cheating world
Defeat this misery
And I will lead you by the hand
To show another way

If you can hear these words
Then I am not alone
If you're the same as me
Rise above and let yourself be known
Track Name: My Kingdom - iii - Out of Reach
There is a world that I can see
A place where I can never be
It's always near to me but never within reach

It is a world we'll never meet
Born to be perfect, without hate
Your outer form and inner beauty are the same

Rejected by the world
Accepted just in fantasy
A place where no one ever dies
And trapped by who I am
I must remain here on the ground
While my mind soars through the sky

Such a pleasant torture
I am shown it in my dreams
There is a place where I can never be
All the world before me
Seeing through another's eyes
And once again it fades away
I fade away

With no desire to be cruel
Disease and harm left far behind
To be a part of it, this heaven floods my mind

Rejected by the world
Accepted just in fantasy
A place where no one ever dies
And trapped by who I am
I must remain here on the ground
While my mind soars through the sky

Such a pleasant torture
I am shown it in my dreams
There is a place where I can never be
All the world before me
Seeing through another's eyes
And once again it fades away

And we share one eternity
Building the world in our hearts
We can capture infinity
And bring it to ourselves
Track Name: My Kingdom - iv - My Kingdom
Now I see I've found the place for me
No longer alone in the universe
Build me a world, so I am not alone

Giving them stories and souls of their own
I have the power to make anything I wish
I built paradise with my voice and my hands
A place that I can never show the world

But every time I am alone
I will return to my own kind
All that matters is my kingdom
And the world I made in my mind

Was I born to be the one I am
Am I a misplaced mind
For all the time I want to leave
My waking world behind

I wake in sunlight from a dream
And suddenly alone
What has happened to my kingdom
Take me back to where I belong
Track Name: My Kingdom - v - Out of Time
Time is running short for me
Even though I have so many years to live
I will die before I show
Everything I have to give

I create - while you destroy
And you hate - The life I have
Is it so different to want to let it go
I have a better world than you will ever know

I cannot live in two hearts at a time
This world is stealing my life
I have to choose - my life or the dream
As time goes by

I am trying to live two lives
In between the real and the imagination
I can see I'm out of time
It will never wait for me

I create - but I can never be
More than a ghost to them
To spend my whole life craving somewhere else
It is the greatest waste of all

I cannot live in two hearts at a time
This world is stealing my life
I have to choose - my life or the dream
As time goes by

I have only seen one half of this world
The slices of time that bring perfection to my mind
Will you show me how to live forever, coming back again
Before with the first light of day, I'll fade away

We all move between our different worlds
Perfection and reality
You can always wish to be somewhere else
But the most important time of your life is
Now
Track Name: My Kingdom - vi - Reawakening
There is good in this world if you know where to look
The wonders that you take for granted every day
So don't waste all your life waiting for this escape
Forever waiting for a world that can't be real

Was I born to be the one I am
Am I a misplaced mind...

We are bound to lead the lives we have
No matter where they are
I will use my time and be thankful now
That I am alive at all

I am no master, I'm no god
I have no power to give life
But power to create
I am the maker, I am here
And I can see my world now
I have to turn away

But in the end it will appear
The world I have seen in my dreams
The power of the mind
Desire of the heart
A place I'll never find
My kingdom
