Track Name: Somebody Else
Hey
Who are you today
In this phoney play
Can you remember your name

Someone else's eyes
Someone else's mind
You're trying to be cause you

Think it makes you better
Feel it makes you stronger

You will always fail in
Being someone else, your
True self will prevail, why
Don't you try to
Just be yourself

Don't be somebody else

Why
Do you always see someone you'd
Like to be
Rather than you'd be yourself

Just the way you are
You're the perfect face
You are the perfect

Mind, all you
Need is right inside you
Throw away this cover
Trust your inner power

You will always fail in
Being someone else, your
True self will prevail, why
Don't you try to
Just be yourself

Yourself, don't be somebody else

Embrace who you are
You have to believe
That's all that you need
There's no one else

Embrace who you are
You have to believe
That's all that you need
There's no one else

Throw away this cover
Trust your inner power
No one else can be yourself
And you're the one to be

You will always fail in
Being someone else, your
True self will prevail, why
Don't you try to
Just be yourself

Yourself, don't be somebody else
Track Name: Blinded
Locked in my mind under my skin
I buried every trace
All that is lost I'll never regain
And I cannot replace

Was it me who denied
How twisted truth became
Was it you who just smiled
while I was falling

Every thought every word
I just believed it
Never a doubt not even a sign
That I was losing all
Blinded

With every breath with every move
This maze becomes so real
Imprisoned and lost enchanted and fooled
By things I'll never feel

Where's the start where's the end
When lies begin to play
No escape from this land
And no salvation

Release me, why I'm still spinning around
Inside your mind..

Forget me

Every thought every word
I just believed it
Lost in your smile drowned in your eyes
I couldn't feel it

Torn and insane confounded and blind
I found my way to live
Soon you will learn what I've become
And I will not forgive


Every thought every word
I just believed it
Lost in your smile drowned in your eyes
I couldn't feel it

Torn and insane confounded and blind
I found my way to live
Soon you will learn what I've become
And I will not forgive

And I will not forgive
Track Name: Forgotten
Everything you know
Everything you've seen
Everywhere you'll go and
Everywhere you've been

You are here to leave a trace
You are here to make it all come true

Brought into this world to be awake
You are never given more than you can take
Never be afraid, your soul's untied
Listen to the voice inside

Everyone you love
Everyone you meet
All you're dreaming of
All that's incomplete

They won't wait if you hesitate
Take this day and make it all come true

Never be afraid you'll go too far
Only broken hopes will leave you scars
That is all you'll have if you don't take
Every chance you get and free yourself

Now all that you have
Forgotten years
Forgotten sighs
Hovering tears

All that you are
Forgotten name
Forgotten smile
Echoing blame

All that you hear
Forgotten voice
Drawing you near

Give up your fears
Give up regrets and live
Take this day and make it all come true
Track Name: Halley
Here it comes another day
To go through same emotions
So indifferent so unkind
It's not what we planned

When it happened why it changed
We slipped without a notion
Pointless efforts useless tries
I can't understand

How we came to this place
With so many lies we need to erase

How to find a purpose in this
Mess of fake expressions
Look at us I can't believe
We're falling apart

Foundering
All together gone forever
Holding onto years we lost for good

We're spinning around
And all these lies are bringing me down

Foundering
All together gone forever
I just want it all to disappear
To fade away
To let it go
To free myself
Track Name: Ageless
How to fight
Another day
Lost in dreams
Lost in this emptiness

I can't feel
I don't want to stay
Numb like this
Trapped in the mess
Where it all

It all sounds like you
It takes me back

Now,
Now you're wind
Now you're rain
Ageless wings
Born again

You're the light
Roaming free
Timeless love
You'll always be

All I am
Fragments within
Make me whole
Take me, transform all this

Nothingness
The void in my soul
Find a place
Give me one moment where I

I fall into you again
And I can cry

Now
Now you're wind
Now you're rain
Ageless wings
Born again

You're the light
Roaming free
Timeless love
You'll always be

You'll forever
Breathe within me
Smile at me when
I can't bear this

Sun without you,
This unfading sorrow,
These shards I became

Now
Now you're wind
Now you're rain
Ageless wings
Born again

You're the light
Roaming free
Timeless love
You'll always be

You're the light
Shining star
Timeless force
The love you are
Track Name: Torn
Smile
I never wanted to be
In a place where
I could love you feel you
Trust you with my soul

Love
Always wanted to be
Unrelated
Always searching wanting
Bleeding for you

I could never say things
I always wanted to say
It's never
Torn forever

I could never love
This person I wanted to be
Just never
Torn forever

I never wanted to be
In a place where
I could love you feel you
Trust you with my soul

Love
Always wanted to be
Unrelated
Always searching wanting
Bleeding for you

I could never say things
I always wanted to say
It's never
Torn forever

I could never love
This person I wanted to be
Just never
Torn forever

Can you find a way
To make it disappear and
Can you find a way
To make it bleed for me

Can you find a way
To make it real and beating
Can you give me back
My peace of mind

I could never say things
I always wanted to say
It's never
Torn forever

I could never love
This person I wanted to be
Just never
Torn forever
Track Name: Monsters
I know your disguise
Mind so full lies
The truth you pushed aside
The promise you denied

Look at your reflection
You'll see just deception
Intentions unclear
Goals so insincere

Promise breaking
Lies resounding
Plea you're faking
Makes me sick, so

Insincere, so
Damn untrue, it's
More than clear now
This is finally you

I know your disguise
Mind so full lies
The truth you pushed aside
The promise you denied

Look at your reflection
You'll see just deception
Intentions unclear
Goals so insincere

Indignation
I must bear and
This vexation
Lead me nowhere

No remorse and
No more blame
This spite is yours
Not part of who I am

I know your disguise
Mind so full lies
The truth you pushed aside
The promise you denied

Look at your reflection
You'll see just deception
Intentions unclear
Goals so insincere

I, I will go on and confide in my fate
No one can take that away
You, you'll stay forever imprisoned in your hate
Forever broken and astray

Fate
Trust
Hate
Lust

I will go on
You'll stay forever imprisoned

Tear up your disguise
Sink into your lies
Drown in all that is wrong
That's where you belong

I'll fight all your malice
Learn from this injustice
Stay strong on my path
And I promise you that
Track Name: He Kills Me More
He wants me to change my ways
He wants to be saved again
Now he asked me to stay the same
Yet he still saves himself away

I've seen no lights into his eyes
I've found no love into his soul, he gives me more
He's found his ways down to my depths
And uses me against myself
He kills me more

Shallow heart sees no emotions yet tries to seize the day
A notion it fails to grasp, for all is shades of gray
As the years go by maybe tomorrow will bring
A change, for you
Use a last one

I've seen no lights into his eyes
I've found no love into his soul he gives me more
He's found his ways down to my depths
And uses me against myself
He kills me more

Images burning, screaming...
The lights out make them dreadfully alive...
when does this circle of beginnings and endings become synchronized?
I sink and yearn and pour all my essence into its void...
It holds me firmly in its arms and leaves me no sigh,
But makes me scream for you... Forever...
Track Name: Persona
In the mirror of my past
There's a girl I used to know
She's the face I live without
And the soul that I disowned

Now I'm falling through her eyes
while her whisper lingers on
It's a voice I recognize
Oh, begging to come home

I’m back
Inside
Where I've been living before
And I can't hide
From voices anymore

They know
My name
The one I cannot recall
And who's to blame
For mask that has to fall

Now she wants me to confess
Every role I've ever played
Every mask that I possess
Every name that I betrayed

But the shadow of my soul
Says it's late to make amends
And it's more than I can stand
Oh, this is where it ends

I want
To be
The one who opens the door
To set her free
The one forevermore

She screams
My name
The one I'll never recall
And I'm to blame
The mask will never fall

I’m falling
Reaching for the light
I’m dreaming
Calling you

I’m fighting
Memories feelings
I’m burning
Losing all

When this moment takes me out
You will stand there on your own
Tearing up disguise
All the faces I have worn

And I'm drowning in your hands
Just a stranger made of glass
If I could live again...
Track Name: The Sea of Fallen Stars
There was a land
Far on the shore
Hidden and lost
And cursed evermore
No one could smile
And no one could feel the joy
Again

Far in that land
A young man was born
Came to the world
Destined and sworn
To take away all sadness
And bring the joy
again

Hear my call
Feel my heart
I'll keep you safe
In this time where we're apart
I reach for your hand
I dream of your eyes
I pray for you to come back
From the sea of fallen stars

There was a land
Far on the shore
Hidden and lost
And cursed evermore
No one could smile
And no one could feel the joy
Again

Hear my call
Feel my heart
I'll keep you safe
In this time where we're apart
I reach for your hand
I dream of your eyes
I pray for you to come back
From the sea of fallen stars

And I've been waiting all these years
I have been crying out my eyes
Pouring out all my tears
Into the sea of fallen stars
