01. Manus Dei

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
[Instrumental]


02. Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife)

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
A passing life each day a carving on the wall
It's like a night without awakening
The truth is lost and maybe never to be found
Like the shadows of my pantomime

When all the world is gathered for the final feast
Will there be someone to believe in me?
Voices echoing in my distorted mind
Is this for real or just a dream?
It all becomes clear
The Truth will appear
Forever I'm there for you and sing...
(Am I losing my mind? I am not afraid, my dear)

Sing for me angel of afterlife calming me down
Chaos inside my nebula
And make the wrong turn to right in a celestial light
Forgive my sacrimony

Tell me what they say that I'm supposed to know
Tell me every little detail
Make truth appear for me as distant memories
Like pictures on a silver screen

It all becomes clear
The truth will appear
Forever a debt for you and me

And now leave me alone
Erase my memory
Don't want to hear, don t want to see
Don't want to think about the lie that follows me

All becomes clear
But no one will hear my testimony

I am your angel of afterlife calming you down
Silence inside your nebula
And when the wrong turns to right in a celestial light
Forgive testimony

(Ring around a rosie,
A pocketful of posies,
Ashes, ashes
We all fall down)


03. Ashes To Ashes

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
Ravished from our Paradise
A crack in the mirror
I know who's to blame
So full of life but paralyzed
Etched on my iris
But I try not to think of it all...

We swore to god in VERITAS
And burned our skin like it burned our souls
One dealt with grief by causing pain
She hid behind maple and built her own fortress of sound

Hear this melody almost forgotten

Hush
I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
Youre returning to heaven
Like dust to dust
I've been waiting forever to witness your fading
like ashes to ashes

Forbidden dance on fragile skin
Why do you shine as I suffer in pain?

The greatest scars remain within
Leaving you now with a heart black as cardinal sin
Fear this melody almost forgotten

Hush
I've been waiting a lifetime to show you
You're returning to heaven
Like dust to dust
I've been waiting forever to witness your fading
Like ashes to ashes

Hate... My solution
Fate... An illusion


04. Torn

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
Like a pendant on the neck of a queen
10.000 scars an embrace of the stone
As we dance on a steady canopy
Accuse me fool me take all my pain away my friend
Singing my final song of honor
Betrayed but still I never came around to open my mind

I was torn by the storms in my head
Like a victim of fate
Born to regret
Still denied by the spirits of hell
A call to repent
Til the visions still stand in silence, like a shadow

Like a martyr that is nowhere to be seen
10.000 stars I have prayed for "The Calm"
As we drift on this never ending sea
Clear me keep me take all my pain away my friend
Singing my final song of glory
Betrayed but still I finally came around and opened my eyes
I was...

I was torn by the storms in my head
Like a victim of fate
Born to regret
Still denied by the spirits of hell
A call to repent
Til the visions still stand in silence
Like a shadow

Safe from harm

Torn by the thorns in my head
Like a victim of violence
A call to repent
Denied by the spirits of heaven
Take me up again
To the music of dawn

I was torn by the storms in my head
Like a victim of fate
Born to regret
Still denied by the spirits of hell
A call to repent
Til the visions still stand
Like a shadow


05. Song For Jolee

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
There's a shadow in the cold white light of day
I hope that someday you forgive and set me free
While standing in the pearl white light, Jolee is lost

I wrote an letter to the angels,
to follow me into the light again.

Underneath the velvet letters of my heart
Always will remind me that I'm hurt and sad...

I'm sorry but I can't stop the bleeding
Crying and it's all because of you.
One look in the mirror to see
What's real and fake... Jolee...

There's a princess captured in a wooden frame.
I'd trade eternity for one last look at you.
Not playing by the rules
We played the game of loss...
I'll keep on writing to the angels
So you're safe til the moment we meet again.

Underneath the make-up
The scars that seal my heart
The unspeakable reminder
That I'm hurt and sad

I'm sorry but I can't stop the bleeding
Crying and it's all because of you.
One look in the mirror to see,
What's real and fake... Jolee...

One look in the mirror to see
What's real and fake Jolee...


06. Veritas

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
In the mirror
My reflection
Lies to me
That is not the man I want to see
But every harvest
Takes me closer to my aim
I will be there
As soon as darkness falls
My life is but a heartbeat away
And all you ever had will soon belong to me

In morte ultima veritas
"In Death the final truth"

You will kneel before me
And you will confess that I am God

In morte ultima veritas

Send me your prayers
But death is the answer to life

While your wailing's
Feed my anger
I stay calm
Cause I am shite that you
Won't let me down
Fading gently
To the sound I can't forget
And don't you know
That when the music dies
My life is but a heartbeat away
And all you ever had will soon belong to me

My life so short but innocent
It allways will remain...
And all I know is
It was good
My childhood memories...
I was blessed to live

Please... please let it die
Or brothers this is my last goodbye
I am begging you please...


07. My Confession

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
Give me a sign
Sing the words of innocence and broken pride
Make my conclusions fail
Send me a sign... Heal this broken melody
Cause each night I die in hell

My God has shown his sympathy
For all the spirits lost
I've prayed for salvation and peace for ages
Standing in the summerbreeze
Inhaling life again
A new day has come
A chance to relive
Forget and forgive

Somehow I wasted all
They sealed my voice and wisdom

But my soul was born
On the battleground
Justice in blood...
Long awaited victory
And tonight you die in hell

Somebody hides inside my mind
We're bound together
But this is my confession
Soulmate or enemy
a thorn in my religion
Release my heart
Unfold my tounge

Sace a place for me in heaven
We'll meet another day
I found forgivness

And the meaning of it all
My fear is gone...
Gone...


08. Silverthorn

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
Curse or repayment?
Truth or illusion?
(In my) noble asylum
When dark hours linger
The sinister silence
Is bowed into millions of tears

The sweetness of sound
Turns to raging thunder

A deadly serenade in the moonlight
the bringer of pain
like fear on a silverplate
I am frozen betrayed by myself
When will this end?...

Same old pavilion
A different appearance
Is playing messiah
All good was taken
A thorn made of silver
Abandoned my will to go on

Life is a flower
Fading away
We are not destined to stay
love is forever
The spirit is fee
Time is a borrowed gift for you and me...


09. Falling Like The Fahrenheit

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Katsionis, Paeth, Karevik & Palotai
Let me play a melody for you
While searching for the light
And a way to live forever
Your flaws make sure you never contemplate
And see the consequense
Of trying to survive

Like the shadows in my head
You will play that ghost again...
Do you think salvation waits for you?
As I lay you down to sleep
All your tears are mine to keep...

Falling like the fahrenheit
Someone will always lose

You will never see another sunrise
My cyanide in paradise
That someone's always you
I will never see another sundown in your eyes

Let me share a memory with you
Imprisoned in the sound
Let us dream away together
Every single note is bound to send
A flower from this world
To wither with a smile

Give me a sign
To take what is rightously mine...

Give me the secrets that you keep (feed me)
I will save them for noone else to see


10. Solitaire

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
On a dim december morning
A glass of "I forgot the name"
I can't turn wine to water
I won't come back again

And the minutes turn to hours
I keep spinning cards that look the same
And I so await the moment to talk to you...

Please shine, my dear - embrace me

It's time again
All light is banned
My soul is free
And blessed to see

Sometimes when I'm out of reach
And sometimes when I'm there
That is when our souls agree and join in solitaire
Sometimes when my will to love has gone away
That is when I hear you name

Now the pale sunlight is blinding
It's here to claim my sanity
And I just can't stand the waiting
To revive ecstasy

Please shine oh night
My dear - embrace me

Sometimes when I'm put of reach
And sometimes when I'm there
That is when our souls agree to join in solitaire
Sometimes when my will to love
Has gone away
That is when I hear your name

I won't sustain another day
My love, my darkness
Daylight reflects my starving soul
And open wounds for everyone to see


11. Prodigal Son

Music & lyrics by Youngblood, Palotai, Paeth & Tommy Karevik
Part I - Funerale

Essence of beauty
Taken to soon
Princess of hope
Deep in our hearts you live on

Essence of goodness
Godess of life
Give us the power/Give us the reason
God give us strength to live on

Essence of beauty
Taken to soon
Princess of hope
Deep in our hearts you live on

Essence of goodness
Godess of life
Give us the power/Give us the reason
God give us strength to live on


Part II - Burden of Shame

How could this happen?
Of what have we done?
Will our tears ever pay for our sin?

Mother give us
We need all your love
To fight and to carry
The burden of shame

(The branding)
Hereby we swear
For as long as we live
We will not soil our name

The truth made of iron
Will seal it with pain
Until death our secrets remains


Part III - The Journey

A minute away but worls/oceans apart
Borhters in blood now divided in heart

By grief and sorrow one is striving
To repay
Behind the palisade he lives his destined life
The music and the tears are piercing
Through the walls
Turn to nightmares and there is no escape at all

Oh joyful childhood you died so young...

Every child follows blind
On the journey we call life
Learning every day
(Learning with every step)
Given love or given hate
Determines everybodies fate in life
Be careful what you give...

A stranger to love and affection
On the run
In search of shelter in the solitude of sin
A drifter in the dark soldier
Of the pain
A constant slave under the belt of misery

Oh joyful childhood you died so young

On the journey we call life
Learning every day
(Learning with every step)
Given love or given hate
Determines everybodies fate in life
Be careful what you give...

26. Grace

Watch me passing through
Your odd dimension
You're standing there
Carrying the cross that I gave

I'm a northern light
The stars above you
I whisper your name
Oh, feeling strange

You're falling down from grace
And feeling kinda strange
It's not over
You're falling down from grace
And feeling kinda strange
It's not over

Come and breathe inside
My celestial sphere
Feel the rush in your fragile flesh

I can feel your anxiety
Restless mind
Searching for love to embrace

You're falling down from grace
And feeling kinda strange
It's not over
You're falling down from grace
And feeling kinda strange
It's not over

Don't despise me
I am the truth
Don't be indifferent
You won't be condemned
Will I ever reach you
If I open my arms
You lose, you die
Turning my heart into stone

You're falling down from grace
You're feeling kinda strange
It's not over
You're falling down from grace
And feeling kinda strange
It's not over


27. Leaving Too Soon (Japanese Bonus Track)

Close your eyes and count to ten
I dare you
I will catch your fall
It takes a dreamer to believe

Make a wish and take a stand
I promise the world to you
The sun will paint you face with gold
Saying you don't have to live afraid

Because we're all leaving too soon
In a moment of sobriety we learn to see
We are not meant to stay for eternity
Don't use the time you have to dream away

Weigh the future in your hand
Tomorrow, today has gone to sleep
Only to wake up yesterday

Cross the borders of your land
The soil beneath will crumble
The sun will light the fire in your eyes again
Saying you don't have to die afraid

Because we're all leaving too soon
In a moment of sobriety we learn to see
We are not meant to stay for eternity
Don't use to time you have to dream away

Because we're all leaving too soon
In a moment of sobriety we learn to see
We are not meant to stay for eternity
So use the life you have to live your dream
