We're out on open water, speeding for the distance Beneath the endless sky, we're carried by the wind The shining stars will keep us steadfast on our way While our path is clear, we ride, we're heading straight on to the sun It's been a long time now, we can't escape forever We're overtaken by a shadow in the sky So suddenly the clouds arrive and block the light And without a guide there's nowhere left to go As we're wandering, the stars fade away I need somebody to show me the way We can make it through the storm And from the chaos we'll reform To reach the other side And see the smile of the sun But it's got so hard to hide The cracks appearing in the sky As the days of our ending have begun We're lost among the thunder, searching for the way out This time it isn't clear, there's no true path ahead We're spinning round, the storm has taken all control And the way out is forgotten as we hold on for our lives As we're wandering, the stars fade away I need somebody to show me the way We can make it through the storm And from the chaos we'll reform To reach the other side And see the smile of the sun But it's got so hard to hide The cracks appearing in the sky As the days of our ending have begun Keep watching the sea Keep watching the sky It's not in our nature to give up and die Your eyes on the waves Your hands on the helm And you'll guide us through the storm Keep watching the sea Keep watching the sky It's not in our nature to give up and die Your heart in the past Your mind on tomorrow You'll guide us through the storm The ones beside me in this fight against the ocean As I depend on them, their lives depend on me And I'm alive again, my choices now are clear I can seize a chance and take us out, to navigate the sea As we're wandering, I'm finding our way And eventually, each storm fades away We can make it through the storm And from the chaos we'll reform To reach the other side And see the smile of the sun But it's got so hard to hide The cracks appearing in the sky At the days of our end We can make it through the storm And from the chaos we'll reform To reach the other side And see the smile of the sun But it's got so hard to hide The cracks appearing in the sky As the days of our ending have begun As we search for our sky Escape the storm overhead Once again see the smile of the sun

Taken far through the stars For just a moment now To a place that's better than your life Ripped back out of that world Your heart's still set on there Blind to earth, and staring up to the sky Wasting time And missing life Waiting forever for someone To save them from all And we sleep and keep on dreaming As the world becomes our dying home Know we have no future As we sleep and dream of Albion In the eyes of the world and all their perfect lives We are death, invaders from the sky You think that you've found unending paradise Yet to learn this world was not meant for you Lost in sleep Eternally You can't live your life by borrowing somebody's dream And we sleep and keep on dreaming As the world becomes our dying home Know we have no future As we sleep and dream of Albion A false world that you chose Stumbling through life with eyes closed Wake up and realize you're alive Out of the chaos of this world New life is given birth And we can build our own Albion Right here with all the wonder of our earth But we sleep and keep on dreaming As the world becomes our dying home Know we have no future As we sleep and dream of Albion We dream of Albion Lifeless and cold as our world We're trapped inside this dream forever This dream of Albion We dream of Albion

Hie thee to the ocean city To conquer the shadows of night To fight against the endless dark Restore this world's light Time's end will await you there And death's demise, it's told Though you don't yet know what this means Sail on to Armoroad Far to the south a pathway leads beneath the silent sea Leads down through spiral strata formed from chaos and debris Promise of fame, a truth to seek and fortune for the brave From near and far they gather here to enter the maze From the corners of the world To the centre of the ocean labyrinth Every single life has a purpose Drawing them to here From the weakest sons of earth To the daughters born of royalty When the legend reaches distant shores Throughout the world they hear these words Hie thee to the ocean city To conquer the shadows of night To fight against the endless dark Restore this world's light Time's end will await you there And death's demise, it's told So journey for the distant shore Sail on to Armoroad Far down below, a secret lies beneath the ocean waves The key to great disaster at the centre of the maze Open the path, a world lost a century ago Protected through the ages so the city might live From the corners of the world To the centre of the ocean labyrinth Every single life has a purpose Drawing them to here From the weakest sons of earth To the daughters born of royalty They will journey through the dark And find the story to be told Travel down the nested worlds Through the forest of eternity Could you be the ones to find the way Endure the silence of the sea A hero's odyssey Into the void of the dark From the sky to the sea There's no true path As you take your chance Fighting venom and rage To find a way through the nested worlds Through wood, water, fire, stone and light Down to the black, and deeper still To a place defying time [Koshiro Yuzo medley] Take up the sword and the scroll in hand This is where your own tale began A place in your mind Left so far behind Can come back to being once more Crossing the borders of land and sea Open the path to sanctuary And then may you find The song lost to time And bring back the light to us all Travel down the nested worlds Through the forest of eternity Could you be the ones to find the way Endure the silence of the sea Travel down the nested worlds Through the forest of eternity Could you be the ones to find the way Endure the silence of the sea A hero's odyssey

The country's broken and they know just who to blame They tell you lies and want a mark next to their name Trust in your baseless fear and gullibility To make you see what they tell you to see The donkey and the elephant The rose and crayon tree Choosing which of their lies you will believe And the race goes on forever As we try to best ourselves One side spreads lies and hate and fear The other wants to save the world Every time the dance went on A new face took the stage But the future refused to change So grab your flag, we'll march together to the square No need for reason, cause we all know why we're here They'll change their minds about us when they see our words Who cares what all the others say, we'll scream until we're heard It takes so long to teach them What they never want to learn Turn your back on the fire and you'll burn And the race goes on forever As we try to best ourselves One side spreads lies and hate and fear The other wants to save the world One will stand above the rest And promise hope and change But turn out to be just as strange Sit back with covered ears You'll make them king of all the world Turn your back on the fire and you'll burn And the race goes on forever As we try to best ourselves One side spreads lies and hate and fear The other wants to save the world Every time the dance went on A new face took the stage But the future refused to change And steadfast we will stand divided Cause united we would fall Still we live, side by side Just as long as we're alive And the future will never change

Despite all human reason We believe a voice unheard Look back a thousand years ago And cling on to those words Believing all our wonders Are miracles from god Now those who only trust the dead Are holding back the world With blinded eyes What used to be our knowledge Is now a heresy We're branded all as skeptics By the ones who don't believe What happened to the world And the future we were told Every time we dare to take a step A raging storm unfolds Blindly they look to the sun There's no chosen one A star that will never come Turn your eyes down to your dying world Over blackened sands To the boiling sea Fighting the world forever Have we seen the apex of our time We all believed we could change the world In an age that never came Sailing the acid ocean Evolution of our world denied Just once for them, would you send a sign A chance for all mankind A signal from the sky Father, if you're out there Would you speak to them again A voice to find, to free their mind From confirmation's pain And save us from delusions Of the ones who saw the light Those who see the world In perfect black and white Blindly they look to the sun There's no chosen one A star that will never come Turn your eyes down to your dying world Over blackened sands To the acid ocean Fighting the world forever Have we seen the apex of our time We all believed we could change the world In an age that never came Sailing the acid ocean Evolution of our world denied Just once for them, would you send a sign A chance for all mankind A signal from the sky Power, greed, corruption Hate disguised as love Leading to temptation Those we're meant to trust Righteous persecution Human rights denied All for what the ancient madmen Saw in ghosts up in the sky Somewhere up through the madness Hatred and violence Blinded in misery Beacons bright in the darkness Shining in silence Just for the ones who choose to see Oh, we're fighting the world forever Have we seen the apex of our time We all believed we could change the world In an age that never came Sailing the acid ocean The potential of us all denied Just once for them, would you send a sign A chance for all mankind An answer for the blind A signal from the sky A signal from the sky

The Swarm 05:14
Do you see the cloud on the horizon Have you heard the word upon the wind It's been building up and we'll be caught inside its eye A relentless, swirling hurricane of hate In this place An electronic world Their power comes at last The mind of the hive As the guilt will cut you up inside And swallow you alive We are the swarm We are the ones you'll fear We're the only voice of reason that you'll hear No single one of us Can think like all of us We will find the world's wrongs And we'll eradicate them all We are the swarm Underground and hidden from the daylight It's our place to govern how we may Show no mercy to the ones we've chosen as the prey Just as long as something pays We are one A legion with no heart Our faces out of sight Our names are unknown And the guilt will strike when you're alone And turn your heart to stone We are the swarm We are the ones you'll fear We're the only voice of reason that you'll hear No single one of us Can think like all of us We will find the world's wrongs And we'll eradicate them all We are the swarm When there's injustice Or things that should not be When word gets out that somewhere Someone guilty is running free We'll always find them Through a million searching eyes When there's something that we hate That needs to die We are one A legion with no heart Our faces out of sight Our names are unknown And the guilt will strike when you're alone And turn your heart to stone We are the swarm We are the ones you'll fear We're the only voice of reason that you'll hear No single one of us Can think like all of us We will find the world's wrongs And by our hands destroy them all We're the front line The only hope you have And the world will change wherever we appear Because no one of us Is cruel as all of us No remorse and no regret We don't forgive, we don't forget We are the swarm We are the swarm

Elements 08:30
I've never seen the world in ways they told me to I hear their words, but everyone seems slightly out of tune They tell me there are things that they keep hidden from their lives A place where no one dares to look for fear of what they'd find But I see brightest colours in the void that no one else can see Content to spend their time lost in the dark How can they live like this, ignoring all the miracles of life How can they live like this, not knowing who they are There are elements inside us And all our lives they guide us Who can say what goes to form our fragile human minds With every one of them connected In ways that we can't find The elements that fuse to form our lives And those that seemed so far apart can be so near To find the breaking point when fascination becomes fear Place them all together, feel the fragments that combine They're branching out forever, form a map of all their minds How can they live like this, not knowing where the answers really lie How can they live like this, not knowing who they are There are elements inside us And all our lives they guide us Who can say what goes to form our fragile human minds With every one of them connected In ways that we can't find The elements that fuse to form our lives Each one of them a shining star Lost in a sea of shame and fear of what they are Define them, and the threads will come undone Keep pushing on to find their facets one by one Regression, possession Submission, trepidation Corruption, consumption Fusion, obliteration Machinist, marauder Crossing forbidden borders Empowerment, entrapment Perfection so abhorrent Seduction, confirmation To find your fascination These fires inside us They fuel our mad desires Elements that fuse to form our lives You could fly higher If you don't believe you'll ever fall Escape the walls of your sanctuary That you built so strong and tall Hear the sound, the barriers breaking down And only then you'll see the endless dark How can you live like this, ignoring all the miracles of life How can you live like this, not knowing who you are There are elements inside us All our lives, they stay in silence But always there to guide us Who can say what goes to form our fragile human minds With every one of them connected In ways that we can't find The elements that fuse to form our lives So many elements inside us That separate and bind us Every atom goes to form our wondrous human minds With every one of us connected In ways we have to find The elements that come together Guiding our own minds forever Elements that fuse to form our lives

No Way Home 04:32
From an island in the old world, far beyond the sea Where I thought that life would always be After all this time I feel my memories fall away As they go, my old life slowly fades into a dream And I see through the eyes Of another place and time As the pictures slowly vanish into haze It's so hard to see through To the Albion I knew And it doesn't even matter Now that time has moved us on There's no way home To the memories of your life Seen in a new light Through the eyes of the world You can't return, as you live to learn Wherever you go, there's no way home Things will never be the same, no matter how you try Once you've gone, it's only in your mind Still I'm reaching out to catch the signals from the sky In the hope that one would lead me back to my own life And I see through the eyes Of another place and time As the pictures slowly vanish into haze It's so hard to see through To the Albion I knew And it doesn't even matter Now that time has moved us on There's no way home To the memories of your life Seen in a new light Through the eyes of the world You can't return, as you live to learn Wherever you go, there's no way home When your world is tearing in half The hands of time destroying the past A picture of the world - lost in time That you'll never find again Oh - oh There's no way home To the memories of your life Seen in a new light Through the eyes of the world You can't return, as you live to learn Wherever you go, there's no way home There's no way home to the world you remember Lost forever in time Wherever you go, there's no way home

Somewhere in the sea of dreams An island stands alone The empty walls and rooftops Are the signs of life now gone And the waves keep pulsing endlessly On to its gentle shore Calling out to all the drifting minds In rhythm to explore It draws them here Awake from the mist That clouds through my conscious mind And I can see Alone on the shore A road leads to nowhere Down to the sea Far up in the sky The shadows of flying machines They circle round Observing the earth Their eyes always watching The lifeless ground And up on the hill I see The spire of the library The centre of all the island's world And with my eyes fixed on the entrance I find myself drawn to the distance Feeling underneath my feet The heartbeat of this universe I run - up to the library The centre of this world Away - and up from the endless sea To reach for some way out And inside the walls Abandoned and desolate A sense of pain A wood panelled room And scattered around my feet Are burned remains But up on the altar A book starts to form from blackened shards A rough empty cover with no words And taking a page charred by fire I reach out and put it in place there Feeling right behind my head A shift in dream's reality Find your fantasy Decide your destiny And then the secrets of an island Will be yours to find It's your only way To reach reality Will you assemble all the pages And escape from time And this dream Turn towards the entrance again Step outside and see the destruction All the flying machines are torn from the air And burn towards the ground I see disaster coming A blaze approaching from the sky And as the first one crashes down Then it's all that I can think of just to run Fire and metal rain from the sky As I run they join the inferno Their bodies spin like paper through air And tear their wings apart And as the island burns in fire Trapping me in flames, I realize Now I know the only way There's one place left to go I run - back to the library To reform time again Return - to alter my destiny And take another chance To find the pages of universe Inside subconscious mind The world - spiralling down into Another branch of time Now the door opens up Into the centre of a storm Tornadoes sweep the sea And the land is scarred and torn Stepping back from the raging wind I shut myself inside Look again to the half-formed book And search another time To find each page in the library A scene from a dream Describing a nightmare through its words The fragments of fears From all the dreamers' minds Evoking thoughts, lives and images Throughout time Find your fantasy Decide your destiny And then the secrets of an island Will be yours to find It's your only way To reach reality Will you assemble all the pages And escape from time And this dream will keep you here And turn through every page Until you find the way to awake Open up your eyes Another page, another landscape forms outside A desert of dust and sand that stretches far and wide I leave the shelter of the door and move away Start walking across the world to find another way Wherever I walked on this plain The spire would appear once again Silent the world reformed And sent me back towards the library This time new figures appear Their spirits emerge from the air Frozen in time and showing me The memories left by minds of dreamers here I see the figures trying each and every page They step outside, return and try again The book now is closed, full and complete Each fate refused, forever they'll stay inside the dream They touch the book again, they pick it up And find it's fused to their hands Fading out, absorbed into time And with one scream they disappear Steel my mind, this fate won't be mine I'll find the way out of here Stepping out for the last time The horizon dark again There's nothing here but the waves of the sea In this path of existence The island never formed But the library still stands eternal Stoic and silent, the book now complete Closed upon the altar And I hear it calling for me Joining all of the dreamers I could leave the world behind Resign to fate, disappear and be gone Do I dare take a last chance There's another way I see But in a dream, what will come when we die With nothing left that's here for me I throw myself into the sea I feel a sudden piercing cold The water closes over me Familiar light envelops me And suddenly I'm flying free I soar up to the endless sky And open up my eyes again Accept your life, and walk the path That you have chosen for yourself You can't repeat one chance Over and over Keep moving on, make your mistakes And learn from each and every one Then you'll return from them Stronger than ever Maybe someday I'll be there again And the way out may not be the same Not in the dreamscape, but this real world And this time I'll find my way If you're there If other dreamers lose their way If you hear The island calling you some day Then you'll know Then the library will still be there, you'll see The secrets of an island revealed

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 to come
