Track Name: Unreality
There's something wrong with how you think
The hate and pettiness you feel
There's something wrong with how you see the world
And all of us

You take delight in every fault
Your mindless empty words assault
To reassure that you're above the rest

You surround yourself with torture and with pain
Fixed on the faults of others, shame and blame
To beat down, to destroy, to tear and desecrate
Its only purpose is to fill you up with hate

Stand above, stand apart
Find the glory of your heart
And the life you hold inside
From this hate break away
Join this unreality
Stay forever by our side

Don't ask why everything is wrong
You would be better off alone
Detach yourself from all the shrines of failure you see

Don't keep your fears within yourself
Stand up and let your words be heard
Or you'll be caught inside the circle

And together we can be a better world
I see the makings of it everywhere
We will give you our hands, together for a time
To join our chorus with the princess of the earth

Stand above, stand apart
Find the glory of your heart
And the life you hold inside
From this hate break away
Join this unreality
Stay forever by our side

You surround yourself with torture and with pain
A false reality that's shown to you
There is good in this world, but you must seek it out
Together we can make it real

Stand above, stand apart
Find the glory of your heart
And the life you hold inside
From this hate break away
Join this unreality
Fly forever now

Running free, you will find
All the glory of your mind
And the life that you can be
Join us now, we can't wait
Stand above the fear and hate
Learn to think and feel
We can make it real
Fly forever free with me
Track Name: The Truth
People will all look to me when the world lies on their shoulders
Throughout all their lives they've known that they can't be open and free
Every last one of these hearts have something they have kept secret
Their minds full of guilt, they'll never be able to know themselves

I can see through your mind if you'll let me
Tell me now the name that you were born
It's the first step to looking through your hidden mind
And the secret to knowing who you are

After you're over your fear and you've learned that you can trust me
The memories pour out, I follow the water of time back again
There is no need to fight back to the world, because I will listen
There's always an origin that we'll find somewhere in the past

I'm just a man - but I have a vision
Something I taught myself through years in darkness
Let me come close - open your mind, receive my own
And I'll dive deep into your scattered, shattered memories

Will you walk with me
Through the corridor of time
To find forgotten pieces in
The corners of your mind
I can see myself in you
I can look out through your eyes
We'll unlock this twisted miracle
Together we'll find the truth

Each mind is a story that I can read through all your memories
Another one starts, another life woven in front of my eyes
With each new mind to explore, I see things that look so familiar
I'm finding myself through you, your desires reflected in me

I can see your evolution
Every joy and fear, each passion and poison
As the past becomes clear again, you'll see it too
And together we'll walk through years of broken memories

Will you walk with me
Through the gallery of time
To find forgotten pieces in
The corners of your mind
I can see myself in you
I can look out through your eyes
We'll unlock this twisted miracle
Together we'll find the truth

Try to remember all that you've heard
Through all your memories I hope to find myself
Don't be afraid now, open your past
Then I can give you peace of mind at last
The answers at last

Will you follow me
Through the labyrinth of time
To find forgotten pieces in
The path that made your life
I can see myself in you
I can look out through your eyes
And I hope you'll do the same for me
Together - forever
I grant you the greatest gift of all
You'll know me when you find the truth
Track Name: My Children (Short Version)
In this world exist a million minds and all their children
An unreality we've made
Some become the symbols and the ones who represent us
And some are left to fade away

Cross the world to find the angels
Those abandoned by their makers
Lives deserving more than they have found
I'll seek out the world's forgotten
Find and save them all - My children
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Let them live

I can't give life, but I can save them from the darkness
The souls that don't deserve to die
I see all too many hearts cast out by their creator
And never given names or lives

Cross the world to find the angels
Those abandoned by their makers
Lives deserving more than they have found
I'll seek out the world's forgotten
Find and save them all - My children
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

So let them live
And let them be
The chosen few
To stay forever in sky sanctuary
Above the world
Immortalized
Saved in my memory
And seen through my eyes

You are the thirty-two angels
To guide me through all of my life
I'll never forget you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

And I will search on through the valleys of this world
Until I have the perfect lives
It might take eternity, and I may never find them
I'll never know unless I try

Cross the world to find the angels
Those abandoned by their makers
Lives deserving more than they have found
I'll seek out the world's forgotten
Find and save them all - My children
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

So let them live
And let them be
The chosen few
To stay forever in sky sanctuary
Above the world
Immortalized
Through my own eyes

And by my hands
They come to life
My chosen few
The ones I found in the valleys of earth
Now raised above
Immortalized
And given new life as children of mine

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Chosen, immortalized in my eyes
Track Name: This Corruption
Nothing here can stop you on your personal crusade
You know well you never will be found
You've made it your task to condemn our shameful ways
And we always hear your furious sound

So why do you keep on coming back to us
You're fooling no one but yourself
Your own obsession gives your mind away
You're just the same as us
You just don't know it yet

Proclaiming your own purity, you build a wall
Scream out loud and let them know it hurts
And through your shuttered mind you'll never realize
You're not the guardian of the world

Let go (let go)
Let go (let go)
Let go of all you used to know
And see the world transform in front of your eyes
Let it enjoy you
Let it destroy you
Until you're one of us

Come give yourself to this corruption
Just let it grow and melt your mind away, now
Remove your fear and open up your heart
Drawing you closer every day
This corruption will be yours to hold

We're the pride of creation, you and I
With all our faults and fantasies
So give up your pretence and join this tragedy
Let the world's corruption spread - fuel me

Let go (let go)
Let go (let go)
Let go of all you used to fear
You'll see the world explode in front of your eyes
Let it enjoy you
Let it destroy you
Until there is no turning back

Come give yourself to this corruption
Just let it grow and melt your mind away, now
Remove your fear and open up your heart
Drawing you closer every day

Come give yourself to this corruption
And then the world will be a better place, now
Cast off your fear and open up your heart
Another new life every day

This corruption will be yours to hold
Let it invade your mind and it will
Set you free
Track Name: The Machinist
I am the mastermind
I'm the creator of a dream
I am an angel, and my gift is life

I am a predator
I take delight in all this fear
Unholy poisoner of your innocence

In this prison of metal and glass
A tribute to all that has passed - in life
And I'm writing each word of your fate
Describing your only future now line by line, and...

Here - behind a mask of iron
Here - inside my own temple for you
Here - I'll be the master of your fate
Just for a moment, and

Now - You'll be the one to enter
Now - The focus, the heart, the centre
Now - This is the madness of my heart
I'll make it come true
And I know it must be you

The dream takes hold of me
I'm the reviver of an art
It's a creation never meant to be

And I can't stop myself
This inspiration from inside
The spasming centre of my manic heart

In this fortress of metal and glass
The lives that are called to my world unite
And I'm writing each word of their fate
Describing their only future now line by line, and...

Here - behind a mask of iron
Here - inside my own temple for you
Here - I'll be the master of your fate
Just for a moment, and

Now - You'll be the one to enter
Now - The focus, the heart, the centre
Now - These are the memories gathered here
Of what's come before
And I'll see you in the core

My insanity is laid before me
You're the mirror of it all
Not alone at last, you brought me
Out of hiding where I stayed
If you share this grotesque fascination
Stand up, show yourself to me
All you have to do is say the word
I'll draw you down into the maze

Born from all my twisted love
To you it's just a game
I wake and feel this cold device
Is bolted to my brain
The karma that I spent on you
Has all come back to me
The watching eyes enjoy the cries
This glorious machine

With a love for control of this anarchy
Now there is just one master here
With the plan set in place, come and step towards the door
A whole new cycle has just begun, so...

Now - I'll be the light to guide you through
The temple of rust I built for you
As the designer of your fate
I'll be your angel, and...

Then - I'll be the hand to guide you home
The fantasy ends, your life restored
I will be seeing you again
When I will call on you once more
Track Name: Promise
No matter where
And no matter who
We'll strike out to come and get you
You've watched from afar
The hand of fate moves
The next could be you

No matter when
And no matter how
We'll be there, we'll come and find you
You'll never be safe, there's nowhere to hide
From the unblinking eye

You will learn to love and fear
Cause I know you wanted to be here
And through you, I've found a way
To share my madness with the world
Track Name: Angel Eye
Welcome to this world of unreality
Just look around at our imagined lives
Here we can be anything we want to be
Transcending all the limits of your life

You could be what your own mind would make you
To break your own world's set of rules
To take on another name, a mystery, and be
Whatever you may choose

Emerging from darkness, out of the shadows
Older than all the universe
With the eye of an angel
He sees the world in ways we can't conceive

Raised by the storm, a legend reborn
A fallen angel rose and came to life
The portal to find
The power of his mind
Is his single angel eye

Powerful, a master of all magic
Protected by the mask of his disguise
A sacrifice he made, but he was sent back
You can read him in the changing colours of his eyes

And his enemies will fall behind him
As he wields the underworld's sword
Raining holy fire from the heavens
As he unveils his final form

Raised by the storm, a legend reborn
A fallen angel rose and came to life
The last on the earth
He'll search for those who gave him birth
With his single angel eye

You're dreaming of this power to relieve you of this pain
If everyone is special then you're all the same again
Unbreakable, invincible, but none of this is true
The greatest tale of all of them is you

Immortal, unbroken, stronger than strong
And older than all the universe
With the eye of an angel
He sees the world in ways we can't conceive

Raised by the storm, a legend reborn
A fallen angel rose and came to life
The last on the earth
He'll search for those who gave him birth
With the eye of angels

Master of time, demonic, divine
A fallen angel rose and came to life
The portal to find
The power of his mind
Is his single angel eye
Track Name: One Perfect Soul
With his great celestial hand
He paints the world in his own image
The mountains, forest and sea
Are the signs of life
That he spreads across the earth
And he left creation in our hands
The keepers of the earth
Stood and watched the chaos
That we brought to the world
His world

And he said -
Now the time has come to end this world
And the creatures crawling on its earth
For my hands have only made corrupt and evil
But I can't destroy the world I love
Earth below and purest skies above
Without giving all of you one chance
To save yourselves
You've fallen so far now
But you may not yet be past all hope
And to prove yourselves my task is this
Find me one perfect soul (One soul)
And the world will be saved

For so many thousand years we've fought ourselves
All the petty differences and grudges we have held
Chaos has been with us all throughout our time
Those who don't know we exist could fight and end our lives

Could there be a perfect soul
Within this broken world
Among the chaos, would there be
Someone to save this land and all its souls

And across the scattered lands this search goes on
It's so hard now to remember all that we have done
Is there just one soul alive without a flaw
Is there one among our kind worth saving the world for

Could there be a perfect soul
Within this broken world
Among the chaos, would they be
Messiah for us all

Save us from the night
Guide us to the light

From the sound and fury of the world
Comes a time, a purpose that unites us all
Have we ever come so far, forgotten what we are
We're not just another tale of earth
Hold his words forever in your heart
And the world is good as long as you're alive
If we learn from those before, we can be so much more
Find me one perfect soul (One soul)
And the world will be saved

And united as we're searching
We forget the hate that we felt
Don't just wait for your own saviour
We can change this world ourselves
And be one perfect soul

From the sound and fury of the world
Comes a time, a purpose that unites us all
Have we ever come so far, forgotten what we are
We're not just another tale of earth
Hold his words forever in your heart
And the world is good as long as you're alive
If we learn from those before, we can be so much more
We are one perfect soul (One soul)

One voice
One body
One mind
One spirit
One heart
One life
One perfect soul
Track Name: Find You
I am a writer of this world
And I will shape it in my image
The air, water, fire and the earth
Can all be crafted by my hand
I can take every soul and draw them in
The lives I make become my children
But here in the back of my own mind
I hear a voice that I can't find

Far away, through the sky
I have seen your face
And you are calling out my name
To come through you will try
But you don't yet have a life
Till I draw you here to me

So could I learn to fly
And reach toward the lands beyond this sky
Leave the world I made for them behind
A journey now to find
This life that was not made within my mind
Could I reach out to you

I will find the fragments of your soul
Throughout the universe
To reach and gather them through time
No matter how long the way
I will draw to this world
Any time, anywhere
I will find you

Why do you want to come to me
Where did you come from, what's your story
I feel I could know just who you are
If our two lives could only cross
And I take every moment I can find
Transforming wonder to obsession
To gather the writings of the past
And piece by piece I find the story of your life

I see the past that you've been given
By the god that made your world
The suffering and every aspect of your tragedy
And as I turn each page of life
My mind is made up more and more
I want to be the one to save you from this cruelty

So now I'm going to fly
To reach toward the lands beyond this sky
Leave the world I made for them behind
And now I have to find
This life that was not made within my mind
It's my promise to you

I will find the fragments of your soul
Throughout the universe
To reach and gather them through time - I will fly
No matter how long the way
I will draw to this world
Any time, anywhere
I will find you

Your voice is the first of the pieces that I find
It's carried through the air of unreality
Already in my grasp as it's projected to this world
I only have to follow to its source

Now I can feel your power as I hold
Here in my hands, a fragment of your soul
And hearing your call I look towards the path ahead
Through the skies my search for you goes on

The body is the tie to earth
It's free of this corruption of the world
Unspoiled, untouchable
And flying free until I give you form

Like rivers of the truth
The pieces of the past will flow as one
The waters rise and fall
Converge and drift apart
I take your memories
And strip them of the world you used to know
A new beginning now
The fragments that I leave to form your mind

Always further out, I'm getting further from my home
I'm never looking back, because I'm never on my own
Towards the distant light I'll fly
The fire of your angel eye
The spirit of your soul revealed to me

Just... like the machinist
I... I can command this chaos
Here... taking it into my own hands
Now... all of the fragments
They... centre around your precious heart
And there is just one last piece left
Carry on

I - I've always been denied
But now I'm taking life
Into my own two hands - and all these
Memories of what they did to you
They spur me on - I'm coming for you
My queen

All my children
Left in my world
Now you'll be only mine as well
And here on the shore
At the edge of the universe
Your final gift is life

Now - I hold them in my hands, forever near to me
The precious fragments of your soul
And now my journey is done, I'll return to my world
Through the darkness, you're coming with me

I return, I'm coming from the sky
And the world has decayed without my hand
We're walking through the ruin
But now, it's only you that matters

I walk over the desert
The forest turned to cold dark sand
Then crawl up to the hills
With the fragments glowing in my hand
At the top of the highest mountain
I look out to the blackened sky
You are gone, and I don't know your name to call you back

I build a shrine
The highest point on earth reserved for you
I turn away
And I walk down from the mountain
Towards the remnants of the world
I gave it up for you - but still I
Hope to see you somewhere in the sky

My world has needed me
Without each other there, we cannot live
I'll rebuild it and never leave again
And still I'm waiting here
I'll stay so you can find and come to me
It's my promise to you

From the ground I'm watching over you for all eternity
The precious fragments of your soul
Lying silent and still, till I bring you to life
At the moment you choose to come back to me
So I'll wait for you forever here within this universe
And hope it wasn't just a dream
And though your image is gone
If you wish to return
I'll be here, I will wait
For as long as it takes
In the end, after all
I will find you
Track Name: Carry the Rings
I had a dream, where I was floating
In a dark and rusted sphere
With nowhere left to go
Catching glimpses of
The golden light surrounding me
I couldn't reach the world beyond
Even though it seemed so close to me
With every door just unreachable
I'm chasing unreality

Back down to earth and all the hardships of the world
Driven mad by darkness, sound and blinding light

Make the dream reality
As you carry the rings across the sea
Travel on to find your brave new world
You're so close and still so far

I have found my final angel
A voice beyond the wall
And the sphere of rust will fade
As thirty-two surround us all
At the speed of sound I travel
To reach your sight again
Though I'm leaving all behind
I'm coming home
The last of my angels

Time slows down, and I'm awake again
I could turn my back here and be saved
But now I've come so far
And I can't give up
The end is finally in my sight

And even though I'm still here stranded on the ground
There is someone there who waits for me to fly

Make the dream reality
As you carry the rings across the sea
Travel on to find your brave new world
You're so close and still so far

I have found my final angel
A voice beyond the wall
And the sphere of rust will fade
As thirty-two surround us all
At the speed of sound I travel
To reach your sight again
Though I'm leaving all behind
I'm coming home
The last of my angels

Into silver light I fly away
Break the sphere and see the city of forever
I've chosen you as you chose me
And the rings will carry us both into eternity, oh

Make the dream reality
As you carry the rings across the sea
Travel on to find your brave new world
You're so close and still so far

I have found my final angel
A voice beyond the wall
And the sphere of rust will fade
As thirty-two surround us all
At the speed of sound I travel
To reach your sight again
Though I'm leaving all behind
I'm coming home
And I will find you

And the bond that we created
Extends beyond this life
We will go wherever you believe
Ascending side by side
I have found my final angel
And you have found your own
We'll be leaving all behind
And coming home
The last of my angels

Carry the rings across the sea
And you know just where I'm going
I'll return again some day
Escaping now the unreality
Track Name: My Children
In this world exist a million minds and all their children
An unreality we've made
Some become the symbols and the ones who represent us
And some are left to fade away

Cross the world to find the angels
Those abandoned by their makers
Lives deserving more than they have found
I'll seek out the world's forgotten
Find and save them all - My children
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Let them live

I can't give life, but I can save them from the darkness
The souls that don't deserve to die
I see all too many hearts cast out by their creator
And never given names or lives

Cross the world to find the angels
Those abandoned by their makers
Lives deserving more than they have found
I'll seek out the world's forgotten
Find and save them all - My children
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

So let them live
And let them be
The chosen few
To stay forever in sky sanctuary
Above the world
Immortalized
Saved in my memory
And seen through my eyes

These are the lives that I have found

[Verse 1]
The first was my creation
With no name she was born
The first that I have saved
And the mother to them all
Imaginary perfection
Companion in the dark
And the start of the story for me

[Verses 2-3]
The second and third came to my sight
Together in form and in name
Each detail of their own lives laid out
For a lord and a master to claim

[Verse 4]
The fourth I made a promise to
That I'd never let her go
And through the years became a symbol
Of all that was to come for us

[Verses 5-7]
The fifth, the sixth, the seventh
In different lights appeared
Their forms and names
Forgotten through the years
The places that I found them
Have all but disappeared
But together they're here in my mind

[Verses 8-11]
The next four were bound together
From when all their lives began
Thrown into the maze and led to its core
By my hidden iron hand

[Verse 12]
Electrical - and beautiful
They fell under your spell
So scared when you appeared, I took your hand
Grew you into what you are today
Your life

[Verses 13-14]
I want to save you from the masters
Those who would twist you to their will
I'd take you back before their dreams of you, and
I'd help you both find a better world

[Verse 15]
Right out of nowhere
You showed the path of life to me
This is a memory
A memory of all you used to be
And I wish I could save your strength from the past
As I remember you

[Verse 16]
I met you through an enemy and friend
Inside a hidden corner, a life without a name
Inspired me to be the one to save
And I still see your eyes everywhere

So let them live
And let them be
The chosen few
To stay forever in sky sanctuary
Above the world
Immortalized
Saved in my memory
And seen through my eyes

I'm searching on
Throughout this world
To find the lost and deserving of life
One after one
They come to me
And by my own hands
Together they'll be

[Verse 17]
Unexpectedly, your story I'd find
I watched you fall in front of my eyes
But cheating death, you'd make your return
(Princess of the earth)
...Now

[Verse 18]
I have seen you through the world
And I followed you through time
All the images of beauty before you disappeared
As invisible as me
Never to be seen again
How I wanted to speak out and then save you
From the voice of the swarm and yourself

[Verses 19-23]
Five are the memories of your childhood corrupted
The beauty in this lustfulness
And when you take that first step
Soon it draws you in, and then
You are caught and you'll never be the same

[Verse 24]
I saw you in another's mind, standing all alone
I took you in and named you, made you one of my own
And the time will pass for you and I
Till the day will come for you to die
I have seen the moments of your life
And all your future
I will save each minute till the end

[Verses 25-26]
I had a dream of you, and I had to write it down
You came together at the dawn of a new world
By some kind of magic you lived, but we can never meet
Separated by realities, this song is now for you

Now getting closer to the end
Regressing to the past again
We're walking down into the darkest reach
And only the four keys remain

[Verses 27-30]
Guilt and shame, a memory of the past
Still it's there, a feared and treasured twisting of your mind
Don't cling to the past, step away before you're caught
Let go of the things that made your life
You know that you're not what you were any more
But deep down inside you're the same
Because as time moves us all through the path of life
They're trapped, and they still remain
They still remain

[Verses 31-32]
The two remaining angels
Not even I can see
Their shapes and names and forms
Are never clear to me
I take them from my memory
And make them of my own
Different worlds I see through their eyes

OH - OH...

You are the thirty-two angels
To guide me through all of my life
I'll never forget you
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

And I will search on through the valleys of this world
Until I have the perfect lives
It might take eternity, and I may never find them
I'll never know unless I try

Cross the world to find the angels
Those abandoned by their makers
Lives deserving more than they have found
I'll seek out the world's forgotten
Find and save them all - My children
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

So let them live
And let them be
The chosen few
To stay forever in sky sanctuary
Above the world
Immortalized
Through my own eyes

And by my hands
They come to life
My chosen few
The ones I found in the valleys of earth
Now raised above
Immortalized
And given new life as children of mine

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Chosen, immortalized in my eyes

Let them live!
