Track Name: The Day the Night Slept
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

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

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

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

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

On towards the southern cross
Through mystic constellations
I want this dream to last forever
The pathway down to earth
Will fade away behind us
And we'll be lost inside forever

I never want this night to end
Will we wake if morning comes again

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
Track Name: Long Live the King
He wished for death to take him
From the world of pain and hatred
And through a dark deception
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 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
(And he said...)
One will be all
And all will be one
So let their voices in harmony sing
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
Long live the king

Back and forth again
The pendulum of time
Keeping the dreamers
Here in their eternal night
Don't you leave me here
You should not fear the sun
Here in my private shell
Now we all are one

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
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
Long live the king
Track Name: The Scorpion's Fire
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 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

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
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

Down in the dark well all alone now
The scorpion would die
No chance to give another creature
Just one more day of life

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

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
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 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."

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

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

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
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
Track Name: Night on the Galactic Railroad
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 the one galactic 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

This night
One holy night
On the galactic railroad
Only you can decide
When your journey ends

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

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

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 the one galactic 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

This night
One holy night
On the galactic railroad
Only you can decide
When your journey ends

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

I'll show you the wonders of the endless universe
We know that in the end

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
