Track Name: In The Crossroads Of Life
Deep in your soul
Dwells the growing cold

You are lost
And left alone
You have your choice
You're in the crossroads of life
Track Name: Journal Of Sorrow
Today my world was
Broken and torn apart
I can't understand
How did we end up this way

And as the pen glided through the paper
The letters made words of sorrow
The literature of love and joy
Shattered over pages

My love - the memories
They haunt me in my sleep
I can't understand
I'm not waking beside you anymore

And as the pen glided through the paper
The letters made words of sorrow
The literature of love and joy
Shattered over pages

Clear are the pictures
Down in journal of sorrow
Telling stories of a man
When the love was not torn apart
Clear are the stories
Down in journal of sorrow
Telling stories of a man
Who once was in love

I swear from the bottom of my heart
One day we'll share the same we had
Until then this will be my last
Goodbye

Clear are the pictures
Down in journal of sorrow
Telling stories of a man
When the love was not torn apart
Clear are the stories
Down in journal of sorrow
Telling stories of a man
Who once was in love
Track Name: Lay Me Down
Mistful, the sides of path
I am here to roam
I can't see far enough
Barren, the ground
Under my half-dead feet
Oh guide me on my journey to the end

Godless kingdoms
Lay me down
Father long forlorn
Drown

Clouds turn their way
Today is the day of the days
I will fade away
I will fade for my sleep
Forevermore
I'll sleep inside,
I'll sleep inside
This cell of peace
Peace
I, I'll fall behind the curtain

Godless kingdoms
Lay me down
Father long forlorn
Drown
Track Name: ...I fall
Descending moon tells end of a tale
One that days of past were telling
I feel the grasp of infinity
As my soul seems to be draining

Two roads diverge from one
The fate is to be undone
This is the place, this is the time
To take the final step

I fall
I can feel embrace of the stream
For the end was here to tear me apart
I fall
For the tale was not to hear
And at last I see
Track Name: Son
Wind blows through my hair
Here we stand at the edge of day
As the quiet murmur echoes through the air
I kneel to see you from eye to eye

Never had the time
Nor the will to say
And now it's too late

Son, look at the skies
It's on flames tonight
This is a moment to recall
When it's your time to fall
Son, look at the mirror
Of dark and serene waters
Now sleep my Son

You long to my deepest thoughts
As you watch me breathe with wetty eyes
I find it hard to open my mouth
Now when all the words were left unsaid

It's too late for apologies, Son
But it's never too late to reach the sun
You have years ahead, days to live through
It's my time to go now: Son, farewell

Never had the time
Nor the will to say
And now it's too late

Son, look at the skies
It's on flames tonight
This is a moment to recall
When it's your time to fall
Son, look at the mirror
Of dark and serene waters
Now sleep my Son
Track Name: Distant Lands (Act II - Apocalypse)
Combine me with my soul
So for once I can breathe
Silence, play your melody
Hush away the burning flames

It's apocalypse
No one's gonna make it
Stars blazing in fire
No need to fight it
It's apocalypse
Mountains crashing
Deep blue seas drying out
We weren't gonna make it

Play again your melody
Thus fill our hearts again
Distant shores, embrace me waves
End this apocalypse

It's apocalypse
No one's gonna make it
Stars blazing in fire
No need to fight it
It's apocalypse
Mountains crashing
Deep blue seas drying out
We weren't gonna make it
Track Name: Mine Are My Kingdoms
Oh dear mother it's a hopeful dawn
Hear the wind: Silent is its tongue
My arms are weak, I am set to fall
Here's my humble message: Thank you for all

Only if I could change a night or two
Change the winds of winter into a blow

You thought a hero of me
You soothed away the tears
Said; "Son you'll wear a crown
A crown for yours are your kingdoms"
In the dawn of misty tide
From the start to end of time
"You son will hold a crown
A crown for yours are your kingdoms"

Dear mother I'll have my thrown;
I've been set to hold my crown
King's soul is fragile - ready for a fall
The gates are open: Thank you for all!

Only if I could change a night or two
Change the winds of winter into a blow

You thought a hero of me
You soothed away the tears
Said; "Son you'll wear a crown
A crown for yours are your kingdoms"
In the dawn of misty tide
From the start to end of time
"You son will hold a crown
A crown for yours are your kingdoms"

The gates are open
A journey is to begin
I was no noble
Not a hero, not a kind
But once the dusk greets me
I'll be the one singing

You thought a hero of me
You soothed away the tears
Said; "Son you'll wear a crown
A crown for yours are your kingdoms"
In the dawn of misty tide
From the start to end of time
"You son will hold a crown
A crown for yours are your kingdoms"
Track Name: Life Like Death Carries
Embrace me dear past
Let me live again those days
Oh my tide-lasting memory
Let me dive past thee

Thus from my earthly bounds
I was released without doubt

I vanished - now I'm nothing
"I'm in your memories"
I vanished - now I'm aching
"Life like the death carries"

Pale I see you just as always
Time has taken cost of the days
Mourn me or mourn me not
To eternity I am forgot

I vanished - now I'm nothing
"I'm in your memories"
I vanished - now I'm aching
"Life like the death carries"
Track Name: Withering Tongue
Your eyes, your hair
I feel you next to me
As silent songs are played
To us by yard's trees

No matter we age
Nor holds meaning the greys
As our spines curve
Shall our hearts remain

"I won't let go
I won't leave you alone"
Hear my last words
From my withering tongue
"I won't betray you
I won't leave and go"
Hear my last words
From my withering tongue

Days like pouring rain
Have fled from my memory
It's been countless years
I spent by your grave

Here I sit again
Singing our wedding song
My feet hold no more
Darling I'm coming home

"I won't let go
I won't leave you alone"
Hear my last words
From my withering tongue
"I won't betray you
I won't leave and go"
Hear my last words
From my withering tongue

From a weary heart
With warmth and love
I sing to you my dear
Our song
From a withering tongue
With tears of lost
I sing to you my dear
Our song
Track Name: Frozen Steps
I'm the night
The darkest of the souls
You're the day
That withers out my hopes

I'm a crow
Always causing a trouble
You're a dove
Flying harmlessly around

I'm alone
A lonely-parted thug
You're alive
You're not one but you're two

The burden of fragile life
The burden of dark and light
The curtain has fallen
We remain in those frozen steps

While I'm the sand
A sea of little shards
You're the stone
A You and nothing more

And we are two
Never to unite as one
While we try
We both die from inside

The burden of fragile life
The burden of dark and light
The curtain has fallen
We remain in those frozen steps

Can we take the burden?
Can we outlast the problems?
Are we to live united?
Can we take the burden?
