Track Name: Stories
Stories have been told
Throughout all of mankind’s history
They give us something to hold on too
Passing on the knowledge we had
And when our lives start failing
They will led us flee our own reality

When a mother tells her child
And we listen to her with open mouth
I keep wondering what are we looking for
Do we want to face the truth or live a lie?

We walk the earth without the answers
Clueless of what is yet to come
In search of hope and home
Losing sight of consequence
And we strive to be the strongest
And find the key to life’s mystery

When a mother tells her child
And we listen to her with open mouth
I keep wondering what are we looking for
Do we want to face the truth or live a lie?

All those stories with heroes brave and beautiful
Might stress our own lives insignificance
For most our lives are modest
With no heroism to pursue
Track Name: Call of the valkyrie
Over battlefields we ride, making our final call
Between Odin’s hall and hells flaming heath
Who’ll rise above, who will descend beneath?

In the heat of the fight, I can hear the warriors’ cry
Sacrificing mans’ lives on either side
When the victory is near, as the end is nearby
Death reunites what man strives to divide

Those fallen in battle are lost to this world
Fall in our hands as we will decide
Upon your faith until the very end
Hear our song and turn from the light

In the heat of the fight, I can hear the warriors’ cry
Sacrificing mans’ lives on either side
When the victory is near, as the end is nearby
Death reunites what man strives to divide

One by one they fall into our hands
When will this madness end?

Over battlefields we ride, making our final call
Between Odin’s hall and hells flaming heath
Who’ll rise above, who will descend beneath?
When the victory is ours to take

In the heat of the fight, I can hear the warriors’ cry
Sacrificing mans’ lives on either side
When the victory is near, as the end is nearby
Death reunites what man strives to divide
Track Name: A good day to day
Oh why don’t you stay?
I know you want to
Everything here
Will remind me of you

You cross the line all alone
Nobody can join you

Tell me no lies
If you claim we belong here

You cross the line all alone
And leave me here

No pain inside
Close your eyes
It’s over now
Track Name: Will you be there
Listen, I got something to say to you.
Here we are far away from what still has to come.

Now you promise me your love, now you promise me the world,
but will you be there when white turns grey?
Now you’re giving me, all your life, but will you, will you, will you

Will you be there for me, when the sun is gone, will you be my eyes when it gets to dark for me to see, to walk by myself?
This time will come, this we can’t deny.

Standing here, holding hands, facing new directions
These hands will grow old, we’ll choose our own course and this world shall faint.
So can you promise me now
That you’ll never break your vow?

Will you be there for me, when the sun is gone, will you be my eyes when it gets to dark for me to see, to walk by myself?
This time will come, this we can’t deny.

Will you be there when the sun is gone, be my eyes when it gets to dark. Will you be there when the sun is gone. This time will come, this we can't deny.

You promise me, that you'll be, the one that stays until the end of time.
So when the tides are changing, and all the lights go out,
will you still be the one, will you still be

Will you be there for me, when the sun is gone, will you be my eyes when it gets to dark for me to see, to walk by myself?
This time will come, this we can’t deny.
Track Name: Walk my love
Those last words you wrote to me forever linger
they reside in my mind. You need to wander and cannot reside.
Truthful, aching words lovingly signed

Follow your destiny my love, In my thoughts I’ll bear with you
Until you find your way

I know your journey is over
as the night that follows you still remains
and the other side is calling out your name

Time moves fast and ever slowly May the truth of you last I’ve seen you on the green covered hills I’m freezing in the cold recalling your past Follow your destiny my love, In my thoughts I’ll bear with you
Until you find your way

I know your journey is over
as the night that follows you still remains
and the other side is calling out your name

The cold last night that woke me
Leaving me trembling in the night my dream became so empty may it not be so, please fight

for your destiny my love, in my thoughts I’ll bear with you until you find your way, There is no reason why Follow your destiny my love, until you find a way to speak, a way to talk, walk my love walk

I know your journey is over…
Track Name: Consolamentum
We go with those who are the world
refraining from its shadows
fighting our own war

Sustained form vanity and pride
it has been for centuries
Returning to life's core

In night and day
in word and deed
we follow our belief

And in the end
when all is done
death is our relief

We go with those who are the world
refraining from its shadows
searching for its light
Track Name: Wide awake
When silence falls and words keep quiet I reach out for you
I realize that once again I chose wrong

And I see me running, away from you instead of going your way
And on that moment I cry out your name

Father, I’m falling on my knees, and I can’t believe I’m here again, with eyes full of tears

Free me from this and selfish path, I keep circling around and don’t proceed, so help me out…

I’m wide awake, but I still can’t see the
Light, that should guide me
Onto the path that you want me to go
But I find myself wrapped in void.

Come to me, beloved ones, I’ll set you free, lay your burden down
Behold the day my kingdom comes and every knee shall bow
For I did not come tot save the righteous but all the sinners and you
Track Name: Mother
Where tears are flowing
Our destiny awaits
Sweet little children
In your hands lies our fate

We’re not to blame
Yet under false pretense
We only look to our comfort
But not to consequence

Hear the sounds of mother’s cry
Screaming loud, wondering why
Will we come to realize
We destroyed the life that she’s left behind

Feel her tears and fear her rage
While we stand with wounderous grace
There’s nothing now
That is left to die

We shake our heads
Perhaps in disbelief
But time is ticking
And it will end in grief

Hear the sounds of mother’s cry
Screaming loud, wondering why
Will we come to realize
We destroyed the life that she’s left behind

Will we come to understand
In time
That there’s nothing left to die
Track Name: Whispering thoughts
Your eyes meet mine and see
That I am here for you
No burden seems to weigh me down
Fearful thoughts whisper

Now, in the end
I am alone
Losing this battle - No defeat
While I know that the end is near

Your eyes still see those days
When you were here with me
Nothing could ever slow you down
Thoughts of death whisper

Now, in the end
You are alone
Losing your battle - No defeat
Did you know time runs out?

Now, it's the end
We stand alone
Losing our battle - In defeat
We tore apart - This is the (end).
Track Name: I am here (outro)
Come and find me I am only one heartbeat away
Hidden in the world, you will forget,
you can grow up choose life,
leaving death to disappear I'm right here

When a mother calls her child and we listen to her with open mouth
I keep wondering what are we looking for do we want to face the truth or live a lie
