Tracks



01. Spectrum Of Eternity

Music by David Andersson, Björn Strid
Lyrics by Björn Strid
I feel I'm done with this shell of mine
Separated from the one I knew
I'll kill every minute on hold
While the ocean brings me back to life
I've lived, I've breathed, I've learned to be deceived
Sheltered for what it's worth, forced to make it work
I feel I'm chosen to see what others haven't seen
It's not a tragedy, it's just reality but how it makes me believe

Now I see a spectrum of eternity - The remedy is yours
A thousand of demands, a never-ending glance of fate… Of fate
I'm yours… I'm yours

Three years since I was reborn, a brutal insight
Never knew it could do so much to stir my soul up
It's been relentless, I've felt deprived of my own life
Stuck on the other side of who I was enlightened by

Embrace me, for one last time, take me there
Something's out there and it won't leave me astray

[SOLO: Andersson]

Embrace me, for one last time, take me there…
Something's out there and it won't leave me astray
A thousand of demands, a never-ending glance of fate… Of fate
I'm yours… I'm yours

02. Memories Confined

Music by Sven Karlsson
Lyrics by Björn Strid
This dream institutionalized
My memories confined
Every word that was laid on my tongue
Is going to fry
Let it live... let it live...

There is no savior and there is no gun
That can kill all this honour of mine
And get it done... and get it done

There's no celebration
The rain comes crashing down
We're off to a deeper meaning
We are unconditionally bound

But we are... we are
The only thing that matters in the end
But these scars... these scars
Are well shaped nightmares that pull us down

It's forever, I won't give in
This feeling won't be patronized
All together, we won't believe
Our wish will be bastardized

There is no savior and there is no gun
That can kill all this honour of mine
And get it done... and get it done
There is no savior and there is no gun
That can kill all this honour of mine
And make me run

03. This Momentary Bliss

Music by David Andersson, Björn Strid
Lyrics by Björn Strid
My eyes are bleeding
They've searched
For someone else
Addicted to the hunt
And end up somewhere else
Where the expendable souls go
There must be more to this
I'm right in here
Staring through
A glass wall
I tell you this my friend
We must be bigger
Than momentary bliss

Don't let the light you see
Restrain you
Don't put your trust
In the dark outside
There will be more
Than you ever could die for
This Momentary Bliss is a lie

Cause my eyes they are bleeding

I'm off to treasure
A brand new emotion
I'm taking off
Like a demon of fate
I reckon something
Will see my devotion
For I may be the one to get closer

Closer to what lies beneath
I'm gazing right into
A well of redemption

Don't let the light you see
Restrain you
Don't put your trust
In the dark outside
There will be more
Than you ever could die for
This Momentary Bliss is a lie

Don't let the light you see
Restrain you
Don't put your trust
In the dark outside
There will be more
Than you ever could die for
This Momentary Bliss is a lie

The enemy is what you feel
Believe my words
The enemy is what you feel
And see it's real

[SOLO: Andersson]

Don't let the light you see
Restrain you
Don't put your trust
In the dark outside
There will be more
Than you ever could die for
This Momentary Bliss is a lie

Cause my eyes they are bleeding

04. Tongue

Music by David Andersson
Lyrics by Björn Strid
I've been a failure
I've been a success
Those smiles,
Were a gift from the blessed
So tell me,
Where do I go from here?
I've been brought up
With an aimless tear
On bloodstained fields,
Of broken dreams
I've lost it all
In the upward stream
This time I gotta set free
What lurks deep inside of me

Watch the power leave your,
Chapped palms
It all comes together,
Through influential tongues

The hated
See the light of day,
And here comes the sane
They're aching,
Once they were sacred
So for forgiveness,
Forgetting their weakness
I do belong!

You're a dent in my strive for
Not feeling content
Towards the goals
We were raised to achieve
All my pride was spent
On making myself so numb
Not getting stuck
Under your thumb
Our poor judgement
Will forever, be denied

Watch the power leave your,
Chapped palms
It all comes together,
Through influential tongues
We're latching onto a new phrase
That will rob us of our glorious days

The hated
See the light of day,
And here comes the sane
They're aching,
Once they were sacred
Search for forgiveness
Forgetting their weakness

That's why I'm dedicated to
How to push things through
And I'm not one in a million

(I'm just forgetting that I ever was here)

The hated
See the light of day,
And here comes the sane
They're aching,
Once they were sacred
Search for forgiveness
Forgetting their weakness
I do belong

05. The Living Infinite I

Music & lyrics by Björn Strid
Surrender... will there still be a place for me to grow?
Transcend me beyond this source we thought we knew

Like the river kissed this darkened sea
The shelter has to be somewhere beneath

Let me go... to where the purity comes alive
Drown me... in the living infinite, let me go

I will be one with the abyss, it will bring me to life
Return all the memories, be reborn through the night
A motherly farewell, a tear leaves the eye
I tremble with emotion as I bid goodbye

Like the river kissed this darkened sea
The shelter has to be somewhere beneath

A swirl of emotions
I'm being dragged by the tide
I will turn to my maker
To watch me drown in the great divide...
Great divide

Let me go... to where the purity comes alive
Drown me... in the living infinite, let me go
I will go... to where the vanity won't survive
Drown me... in the living infinite, let me go

06. Let The First Wave Rise

Music & lyrics by David Andersson
First, the silence
Then the chaos
Faces blur in the flickering light
First, the hunting
Then the killing
May your demons surrender tonight

If you're looking for your Gods
Beneath a dying sun
No one here can mend your soul
Before it comes undone

There's no one here to guide you
There's no one here to bring you
Home

Let the first wave arise
Let your weakness subside
Let the first wave arise
Let it rise

First, the symptoms
Then the sickness
Last caress with
You're own trembling hands
First, a victim
Then a witness
When it's too late
To make your amends

If you're looking for the truth
Beyond your dying flesh
In the shadows lie the answers that
You once possesed

There's no one here to guide you
There's no one here to bring you
Home

Let the first wave arise
Let your weakness subside
Let the first wave arise

First, the silence
Then the chaos
First, the silence
Then the chaos
First, the silence
Then the chaos
First, the silence
Then the chaos

Let the first wave arise
Let your weakness subside
Let the first wave arise
Let it rise

07. Vesta

Music & lyrics by Björn Strid
I reckon you have something to say
Like you always do
Disguised with an urge to control
Like always, it's all about you
And the plans that you've made

Never and ever I will let you in
Cause you command lives with passion
A hidden agenda has risen from
Your precious insecurity... now

How could anyone stand to be around you?
The profound you... let me be
Always seem to feel
How we're safe and sound to
Relate to you
Your broken dream is all I see

The way you get to me
Still puzzles my thoughts
It ought to cease
When the day is done
But it tears me apart
It twists my conscience
I've never felt such impact
On my emotions

I cringe by your presence
I hide and I tremble
I feel no connection
Just disgust and anger
I lash out from memory
Daggers of the mind
I've tried so hard
Please believe me

How could anyone stand to be around you?
The profound you... let me be
Always seem to feel
How we're safe and sound to
Relate to you... to you

Did I put this curse upon myself?
It shatters my daydreams alone
Do I leave or just ignore the fact
That it will never leave my system?

I see you've found a way
To infiltrate the poison
It's really more than I can take

I hereby declare you nonexistent
Never to return... go!

How could anyone stand to be around you?
The profound you... let me be
Always seem to feel
How we're safe and sound to
Relate to you
Your broken dream is all I feel

08. Realm Of The Wasted

Music by Sylvain Coudret
Lyrics by Björn Strid
Is it still me
Who controls my universe?
I won't be objective
I don't want any of your lies
Such desperate ways
To control and capture my attention
Please look away
While I make my escape

There's something more
That will enhance all my visions
A personal war
Against all gratification
So leave it behind
Erasing all of yesterday
Build your own world
Let go of their shield

Let go of the shield

All your generic pieces
Of human flesh
Will lead the way
For every fool

The wasted
Follow all your rules
Leaving for something
Better than it seems

I broke the record
Of pleasing someone else
We stand together
As long as someone makes amends
The shit you read
Guidance to self-destruction
We make it bleed
To wake each other up

The wasted
Follow all your rules
Leaving for something
Better than it seems

Now does it hurt too much?
Tell me, how does it feel?
To deny every second
Of a prosperous life
Where you make the call
I will be sheltered
I see no loss
I make my own decisions
For my own cause

Break out... break out
Don't let the shield get to you

The wasted
Follow all your rules
(For all to see)
Leaving for something
Better than it seems

09. The Windswept Mercy

Music & lyrics by Björn Strid
Out we go, we've been ruthless
The tears of time, makes it endless
Give me another life
That will grant me with its solace

Watch it burn...

The need for light
That would guide us
Has gone away
While we progressed
Tell me now, does it die
When we turn our heads
And walk away

Walk away...

The winds swept all of our mercy
It won't never ever come back
Now the pain we feel is worthy
Watch us carry the final collapse
The final collapse

What can we do?
Resurrect the ashes?
Can we stick it through?
And forgive ourselves?
Our minds are covered with dust
Our needs are filthy
Our hands are tied but we still see
That we are guilty
So deliver us from broken dreams
Return us from this mental siege
Throw us back in the cradle of time
And heal our desperate ways...

The winds swept all of our mercy
It won't never ever come back
Now the pain we feel is worthy
Watch us carry the final collapse
The final collapse

Out we go... out we go...

10. Whispers And Lights

Music by David Andersson
Lyrics by Björn Strid
What if I chose a path of no return
What if I gave you the tools
To ruin my life
Would you gladly accept
And steal all my time
Do I control what is missing
And where does it end
Cover my eyes

The wind blows whispers of doom
I'm in tears
Getting a notion it's time to rise
To rise

What is the purpose of being
What makes me alive?
What is it that limits my reach for
Something outside?
Why do I dream, are you trying to
Tell me what's next
But there's no use for me waiting
Around 'til it hits
Cover my eyes... cover my eyes

The wind blows whispers of doom
I'm in tears
Getting a notion it's time to rise
The wind blows whispers of doom
I'm in tears
They tell me it's time to rise

I'll face whatever may come

Whispers and lights

All mistakes by misassociation
Lead to the darkest of times
Here I am with a new declaration
It's all mine and it reads: All out war!

Cramped up soul
Cramped up soul

What if I chose a path of no return
What if I gave you the tools
To ruin my life
Cover my eyes... cover my eyes

The wind blows whispers of doom
I'm in tears
Getting a notion it's time to rise
The wind blows whispers of doom
I'm in tears
They tell me it's time to rise

I'll face whatever may come

12. Long Live The Misanthrope

Music by David Andersson
Lyrics by Björn Strid
Where's the notion
That I would be left out
I wish you'd take me away with you
I know I cursed you
I know I had no doubt
That all of you were the thorns of life

Misanthrope tendencies
I was the one who could never believe
You broke my trust, all was lost
You're all the same to me
I made peace with solitude
A farcicle interlude
The wrath made me a lonely soul

The misanthrope lives on
Through the burning sun
A champion for the ages
The hatred lives on
The world goes numb
A provocateur of life

You won't affect me, I'm in control
When I take the role of the
Misanthrope

A well of emotion taking you back
I won't be shaped
Cause it never ever lasts
Leave me alone
Give me no words to keep
No familiarity
And I won't be deceived

Where's the notion
That I would be left out
I wish you'd take me away with you
I know I cursed you
I know I had no doubts

That all of you
Were the thorns of life

Misanthrope tendencies
I was the one who could never believe
You broke my trust, all was lost
You're all the same to me
I made peace with solitude
A farcicle interlude
The wrath made me a lonely soul

The misanthrope lives on
Through the burning sun
A champion for the ages
The hatred lives on
The world goes numb
A provocateur of life

You won't affect me, I'm in control
When I take the role of the
Misanthrope

A well of emotion taking you back
I won't be shaped
Cause it never ever lasts
Leave me alone
Give me no words to keep
No familiarity
And I won't be deceived

A well of emotion taking you back
I won't be shaped
Cause it never ever lasts
Leave me alone
Give me no words to keep
No familiarity
And I won't be deceived

13. Drowning With Silence

Music by David Andersson
Lyrics by Björn Strid
Need for attention
Need for solace
In this abuse-ridden world
I've fallen into oblivion with you
A mental hand shake of fools

This life has gotten us all
The paradox still remains
We live to choke the difference
Carry the weight of an awful fate
That's what they told you to do

Nothing's changed
Nothing will
We still live the other truth
It makes us cope
With our need for violence...
Nothing's changed
Nothing will
We still give
The water's still
But it still drowns our wish
With silence

I can laugh in the face of god
Cause I wont be loved in the end
Look at all the pain that I've felt
The truth that I've bent to accommodate
Myself

A sideshow with misery
An affair with no dignity
I've lost myself.. I've lost myself

This life has gotten us all
The paradox still remains
We live to choke the difference
Carry the weight of an awful fate
That's what they told you to do

Nothing's changed
Nothing will
We still live the other truth
It makes us cope
With our need for violence...
Nothing's changed
Nothing will
We still give, the waters still
But it still drowns our wish
With silence

While the silence remains
You and I pick the change
The scraps of a lost free will
I won't bother, you won't see
But we can sense the infinite dream

I can laugh in the face of god
Cause I won't be loved in the end
Look at all the pain that I've felt

The truth that I've bent to accommodate
Myself
A sideshow with misery
An affair with no dignity
I've lost myself...

14. Antidotes In Passing

Music by David Andersson
Lyrics by Björn Strid
Who cares but sorrow
When you're down and close to nothing
No one will bother
Watching antidotes in passing

I'm left without a cause
Believe me...
They never told me why
I'm grieving
Now where is the light?

Outside the world goes on
It keeps on turning
The feeling of being an outcast
Just keeps on growing

There must be life... There must be light
Take me home, where the truth unfolds
and steals away the night

Distance keeps growing
Soon I'm far enough to lose it
Am I deserving
'Cause I was brave enough to use it

I'm left without a cause
Believe me...
They never told me why
I'm grieving
Now where is the light?

Outside the world goes on
It keeps on turning
The feeling of being an outcast
Just keeps on growing

There must be life... There must be light
Take me home, where the truth unfolds
And steals away the night

Steals away the night
Steals away the night

15. Leech

Music by Sylvain Coudret
Lyrics by Björn Strid
Are you here to watch me fall on my knees?
You've done it again, I'm out of reach
What was the reason, what was the cause
For you to be able to change who I was?

But you can't leech from me
Now there's nothing to fear

Your acts keep setting me aside
How will I ever know...?
Tell me why!

Is it worth to cut through the state that I'm in?
When our almighty mother constantly wins
But I'm not here to fight you, you gave me life
But I won't understand if I was put here to die

But you can't leech from me
Now there's nothing to fear

Your acts keep setting me aside
How will I ever know...?
Tell me why!
Your acts keep telling me to fly
But I feel like I'm needed though
Show me why

The right time to reveal the rapture
I want to know where my stakes are at
The truth hurts but I feel that I've served well
I hope the living can cope with collapse...

Collapse!

The creation - I've embraced
So enrich me - I won't fail

I will never trace your path
But I will challenge and dispose all my wrath

But you can't leech from me - leech from me
Now there's nothing to fear

Your acts keep setting me aside
How will I ever know...?

Are you here to watch me fall on my knees?
You've done it again, I'm out of reach
What was the reason, what was the cause
For you to be able to change who I was?

16. The Living Infinite II

Music & lyrics by Björn Strid
The shackles of a lifetime are bound to be broken
My fate will be sinking to a world beneath

Dedicating my hopes and fears to the world below
It will swallow all my visions and turn them into gold
I wanna pierce the surface of dreams
I wanna go where there is no need
To accommodate my beliefs and preserve the disease

There will be no one to tell you why
Why we need to pursue our dreams
A gift of resemblance without the greed
A new constitution

It will bring us apart then build it all up
To challenge our fearful waters
I can sense what it's like and what if it might be the key to a new conclusion

Stay aware of all that you bare
Far below the sun
(I'll take you there)
It won't ever cease, it numbs the feel
So unlock the damage done
I'll take you there

The feelings you carry won't ever die
They're one with eternity
The tears you've shed
The words you said are all a part of a constant realm
Withering emotions turn into mindful dust
The reality you've known has always fed your trust

There will be no one to tell you why
Why we need to pursue our dreams
A gift of resemblance without the greed
A new constitution...

Believe me,
There will be something else that drains you from unwelcomed distress
So bring it to a whole new dimension, captured in the deep

It will bring us apart then build it all up
To challenge our fearful waters
I can sense what it's like and what if it might be the key to a new conclusion

Stay aware of all that you bare
Far below the sun
(I'll take you there)
It won't ever cease, it numbs the feel
So unlock the damage done

Stay aware of all that you bare
Far below the sun
(I'll take you there)
It won't ever cease, it numbs the feel
So unlock the damage done
(I'll take you there)

18. Rise Above The Sentiment

Music & lyrics by Björn Strid
Rise above the sentiment
Be at one with the acknowledgement
Turn over obstacles, throwing down gauntlets
Like the back of your hand... back of your hand
I will lead people portrayed as rats
Light the way and prepare to reflect

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

A subliminal exile, judgements in sleep
Left over life goals, buried in the deep
Let me emphasize... the need
Let me categorize... the seeds
We have planted to reject all our hopes

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

Last call for admitting your failures
They keep you hanging around
It's now or never - reveal all the gestures
You have made to keep the pain within bounds
Within bounds...

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

19. Parasite Blues

Music by David Andersson, Björn Strid
Lyrics by Björn Strid
Rise above the sentiment
Be at one with the acknowledgement
Turn over obstacles, throwing down gauntlets
Like the back of your hand... back of your hand
I will lead people portrayed as rats
Light the way and prepare to reflect

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

A subliminal exile, judgements in sleep
Left over life goals, buried in the deep
Let me emphasize... the need
Let me categorize... the seeds
We have planted to reject all our hopes

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

Last call for admitting your failures
They keep you hanging around
It's now or never - reveal all the gestures
You have made to keep the pain within bounds
Within bounds...

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

Now that the search goes on
For another time to live
I might as well be gone, but I
Tend to always come back in the end... In the end

20. Owls Predict, Oracles Stand Guard

Music by Sven Karlsson
Lyrics by Ola Flink
All your presence makes me sick as a dog
You parasite on a dream that was worked for so long
You dragged a good soul down
And you buried his will in the mud... stay away...

Now she's a savior - a lie, a forced goodbye
Manipulation of the desperate kind so...

I'll give you something that you can't ignore
A bait to go all the way
A place where your urge gets paid

All hail the parasite blues

She's a lingering creature
She will blow your mind
But when it comes to your end of this infected alliance
She won't give in...

Feel the love from your savior
A deceiver of trust...
All that you give (all that you give)
Will be returned with your feelings crushed

I'll give you something that you can't ignore
A bait to go all the way
A place where your urge gets paid

Your conscience all washed away
He gave you a world that serves what you've done before
Now it is here again
My dear you just killed a friend

All hail the parasite blues

Just when you thought it couldn't get much worse
She raised the bar to an all-time low
You worked so hard at covering it up
But now it's taking a new... shape!

I'll give you something that you can't ignore
A bait to go all the way
A place where your urge gets paid
Your conscience all washed away
He gave you a world that serves what you've done before
Now it is here again
My dear you just killed a friend
