Track Name: Navigator
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
Track Name: Dream of Albion
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
Track Name: Enter the Labyrinth
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
Track Name: Red Versus Blue
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
Track Name: Signal from the Sky
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
Track Name: The Swarm
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
Track Name: Elements
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
Track Name: No Way Home
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
Track Name: The Secrets of an Island
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
Track Name: The Crimson Angel of Judecca
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
