Stories 05:43
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

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

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
4.
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.

Walk my love 03:34
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…

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

Wide awake 04:52
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
8.
Mother 03:29
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

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).
10.
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
