01. Abandon

Music by Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kotipelto
I'm waiting for the rain
To take away the pain and ease my mind
I hear the tracks sqeal
It makes me want to scream and let the world know how I feel

One way journey, no need for a seat
I'm beat, I won't be coming back
And what I'm learning, this life will be turning
Around at the end of the tracks

Freedom, the life of difter
Who knows, if I'll ever find home
When it's time to go, I'm already there
I'm never scared, I'm leaving one day at the time

Freedom is my crime

Another hazy night
Nothing is in sight, no hope in the air
Would I leave behind
All that's on my mind, would I forget, would I dare

One way journey, no need for a seat
I'm beat, I won't be coming back
And what I'm learning, this life will be turning
Around at the end of the tracks

Freedom, the life of difter
Who knows, if I'll ever find home
When it's time to go, I'm already there
I'm never scared, I'm leaving one day at the time

Freedom is my crime

The sun ain't burning the skies ain't blue
For me it's a sign to move on
And what I hear has made it so clear
I'm heading towards the new dawn

Freedom, the life of difter
Who knows, if I'll ever find home
When it's time to go, I'm already there
I'm never scared, I'm leaving one day at the time

Freedom is my crime


02. Unbreakable

Music by Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kupiainen, Kotipelto
Worthless without time
We follow how it flies by
We still keep believing in white and comforting lies

When it's our turn
Together we stay stronger
We lay still and silent and watch
How our world burns for eternity

You carry me away
'Til 'morrow we're unbreakable
I hold my breath and wait
This moment is unbreakable
I can feel it deep within my heart and my soul
You make me whole
I want to live this second forever
Always together and forevermore
I hold my breath and wait

Worthless without awaits
We see how years keep flying by
I never really cared until I opened my eyes

The final day awaits
And the firestorm's getting closer
Under falling stars we seal our fate
For eternity

You carry me away
'Til 'morrow we're unbreakable
I hold my breath and wait
This moment is unbreakable
I can feel it deep within my heart and my soul
You make me whole
I want to live this second forever
Always together and forevermore
I hold my breath and wait 'til the end
Until 'morrow we're unbreakable

You carry me away
'Til 'morrow we're unbreakable
I hold my breath and wait
This moment is unbreakable
I can feel it deep within my heart and my soul
You make me whole
I want to live this second forever
Always together and forevermore

We are stronger than ever
Always together and forevermore
We are stronger than ever
Always together and forevermore

I hold my breath and wait 'til the end
Until 'morrow we're unbreakable


03. Stand My Ground

Music by Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kotipelto, Kupiainen
This is my way, these are my rules
These are my rhymes, this is my song
Don't take me for some bloody fool
For I still dream, you can't hurt me, I'm strong

You can try, to bring me down, to keep me down
I will rise and I'll be fighting back
You can try, to bring me down, to keep me down
There's no way you can break my will

You can try, to bring me down, to keep me down
My dreams are guiding my every step
I have a destiny to fulfill

No one can bring me down
I will defend my beliefs
And I will stand my ground
I need to see where it leads

No one can bring me down
I will defend my beliefs
And I will stand my ground
I need to see where it leads

You can try, to bring me down, to keep me down
I will rise and I'll be fighting back
You can try, to bring me down, to keep me down
There's no way you can break my will

You can try, to bring me down, to keep me down
My dreams are guiding my every step
I have a destiny to fulfill

No one can bring me down
I will defend my beliefs
And I will stand my ground
I need to see where it leads

No one can bring me down
I will defend my beliefs
And I will stand my ground
No one can bring me down

And I will stand my ground
No one can bring me down


04. Halcyon Days

Music by Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kotipelto
What I feel inside my mind
Is driving me insane
It's so hard to explain
What lies behind it all, what goes around
So I'm twisting here within loneliness

And all the pain inside now
Don't matter anyhow

There's something in the air
Something isn't there
Something that I had just yesterday
Every time I try
Reaching for the sky
Something's coming up and blocks my way
And I know that I just need
To walk away from this
There's something in the air
Something isn't there
The storm rages on
I'm waiting for my Halcyon Days

I will try to avoid it all
But they try to pull me back
If I try will I fall off this track

I don't care now, coz I'm free
I'm still twisting here within loneliness

There's something in the air
Something isn't there
Something that I had just yesterday
Every time I try
Reaching for the sky
Something's coming up and blocks my way
And I know that I just need
To walk away from this
There's something in the air
Something isn't there
The storm rages on
I'm waiting for my Halcyon Days

And all the pain inside now
Don't matter anyhow

There's something in the air

There's something in the air
Something isn't there
Something that I had just yesterday
Every time I try
Reaching for the sky
Something's coming up and blocks my way
And I know that I just need
To walk away from this
There's something in the air
Something isn't there
The storm rages on
I'm waiting for my Halcyon Days


05. Fantasy

Music & lyrics by Porra
Reach a star, travel far or find out who you really are
Climb a hill, learn a skill, all of your dreams you can fulfill
Take a dream make it real, don't let yourself give in to fear
Come with me you can make it anywhere

Sing along, to this song, and let it show that you are strong
Don't pretend, help a friend, they are with you until the end
You will see, you can be whatever you would like to be
Come with me you can make it anywhere

Fantasy, I want to meet you there
You will see, fantasy can become reality
Come with me, this is my fantasy
I believe, fantasy can become reality
Can you be my fantasy

Take your time, it's not a crime cause life is always in its prime
Show you care, if you dare because true friendship's really rare
Take a dream, make it real, don't let yourself give in to fear
Come with me you can make it anywhere

Fantasy, I want to meet you there
You will see, fantasy can become reality
Come with me, this is my fantasy
I believe, fantasy can become reality
Can you be my fantasy

Fantasy, I want to meet you there
You will see, fantasy can become reality
Come with me, this is my fantasy
I believe, fantasy can become reality
Can you be my fantasy


06. Out Of The Fog

Music by Kotipelto, Liimatainen, Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kotipelto, Liimatainen
Black day is dawning
All prayers unanswered, laid to rest
If there's a God he ain't here now
In daunting darkness we will march
Towards the end with desperate hearts
Too tired to hope, too scared to dream

Let innocence fade, make no sound
Let blood that we'll shed stain the ground

No turning back now, the orders are clear
It's time to attack, let the shadow's appear
Heeding the call, brave, standing tall
Relentless and ready to die

There's fear in the wind, there is death in the air
Thousands of souls screaming out in despair
Falling for honor, dying for freedom
Making the last sacrifice

Red rain is falling
Baptized in blood and sin we see
Everyone was someone's son
A soldier fighting for someone
Just a man defending what he believes in

If we found out that we were betrayed
Misguided and fallen from grace

No turning back now, the orders are clear
It's time to attack, let the shadow's appear
Heeding the call, brave, standing tall
Relentless and ready to die

There's fear in the wind, there is death in the air
Thousands of souls screaming out in despair
Falling for honor, dying for freedom
Making the last sacrifice

Rising higher flames will burn
A mournful choir of souls that yearn

Let innocence fade, make no sound
Let blood that we'll shed stain the ground

No turning back now, the orders are clear
It's time to attack, let the shadow's appear
Heeding the call, brave, standing tall
Relentless and ready to die

There's fear in the wind, there is death in the air
Thousands of souls screaming out in despair
Falling for honor, dying for freedom
Making the last sacrifice

Rising higher flames will burn
A mournful choir of souls that yearn


07. Castles In The Air

Music & lyrics by Johansson
When the day turned into night
When the stars run out of light
Will you be here to sing my song
I call your name
To maybe shield the flame
Cause the night is dark and long

In the kingdom is the visible
In the kingdom of the sun
Was a man who saw the years go by
He was always on the run

And the clock ticks fast for everyone
Father time wins every race
And the kingdom of the fading sun
It'll pass without a trace

Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But maybe there is no one to answer your prayer
Our castles in the air
W build them in despair
But you can help me smile on this road to nowhere

There's a small black hole inside my heart
And it's just the size of you
And the road goes on forevermore
And we will turn to dust

Holding on to hope against the hope
While the silence rages on
We would like to try to shield the flame
While we climb a burning rope

Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But maybe there is no one to answer your prayer
Our castles in the air
W build them in despair
But you can help me smile on this road to nowhere

Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But maybe there is no one to answer your prayer
Our castles in the air
W build them in despair
But you can help me smile on this road to nowhere

Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But maybe there is no one to answer your prayer
Our castles in the air
W build them in despair
But you can help me smile on this road to nowhere

When the day turned into night
When the stars run out of light
Will you be here to sing my song
I call your name
To maybe shield the flame
Cause the night is dark and long


08. Dragons

Music & lyrics by Johansson
You wanna go to heaven but you never want to die
A silent scream for freedom turn to fire turn to water turn to
Stone's the same, the sky's the same, it doesn't roll away
The other side where the life goes on is
Close and yet you know it's just a lie

But you're stronger than they are
Feel the wind in your hair
And you're faster than they are
And it feels like you're lighter than air

When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you gaze at the sky
When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you cry

And all the wicked prisons that they built inside your mind
And all the wicked borders that unite us, that divide us,
Until Death ever indifferent will embrace us in the end
But roll away the stone, and hear the wind will whisper out your name

But you're stronger that they are
Feel the wind in your hair
And you're faster than they are
And it feels like you're lighter than air

When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you gaze at the sky
When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you cry

When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you gaze at the sky
When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you cry

When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you gaze at the sky
When you're drawn to the ground by the dragons
Would you raise up your head, would you cry


09. One Must Fall

Music & lyrics by Kupiainen
Take all that I have left
Take everything I have spared for you
Tear down all my veils
Tear down 'til you see my nakes core

Burn down my Eden
Burn down all that I had built for you

Save me - it is all that I have
Spare me - or we all will be damned
Save me, save me, save me, save me

One must fall and stay in the shadows
There's no thrall, no hope, no salvation
One must fall under the black rainbow
Fight no more and maybe there is a better day
But in the end no one will be saved

Bring down the rain on us
Bring it down so we can drown in the flood
Harvest the seeds I've sown
Harvest until you have drained my blood

Save me - what are you fighting for
Spare me - or there's no tomorrow
Save me - your reign is no more
Save me, save me, save me, save me

One must fall and stay in the shadows
There's no thrall, no hope, no salvation
One must fall under the black rainbow
Fight no more and maybe there is a better day
But in the end no one will be saved

One must fall and stay in the shadows
There's no thrall, no hope, no salvation
One must fall under the black rainbow
Fight no more and maybe there is a better day
But in the end no one will be saved


10. If The Story Is Over

Music by Kotipelti, Liimatainen
Lyrics by Liimatainen
Once upon a time I was the scribe of all my dreams
I've seen the years turn into dust, now feel the rust in me
I've walked the shores of Avalon, I've seen the seasons change
I've laughed and cried, I've lived and died, but only on the page

Now all I have, all I am
All I ever was is here, on the page
It's all the same, it never mattered anyway
It's all a lie so let it burn

All empty words and all rhymes will fade
As the light of last candle flickers away
If the story is over, this chapter my last
Let it be my best one, let it be my own

I hope it's not too late to learn to live and learn to love
I yearn to fight, to turn tide before the tender dark
For I never draw the sword from stone, there's no Helen in my Troy
I stand alone. I stand forgotten, just gazing into the void

Come night. Test my will, test my soul
Test my faith and test my heart, torn apart
Make me strong, make me whole again and
Guide through the dark 'til the morning comes

All empty words and all rhymes will fade
As the light of last candle flickers away
If the story is over, this chapter my last
Let it be my best one, let it be my own

All empty words and all rhymes will fade
As the light of last candle flickers away
If the story is over, this chapter my last
Let it be my best one, let it be my own


11. Nemesis

Music by Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kotipelto
The night turns to dawn
This city's left behind
Those who've been blind they will be saved

White stripes on the road
They're guiding my way
Reciting my prayers the road is paved

Through all the years I've carried the flame
In the darkest night as the lightning strikes
I'm bringing hope to those who walk in the shadows

As I drive alone
My mission is unknown
Will it be revealed for me 'cause
Now I'm calling out for

Power - streaming through me
I will let out the angel or the beast
This power - will make you see
As the lightning strikes your pain will be released

Free me - that's what I hear you
Screaming - in misery
Free me - from this pain while
Screaming - kneel before mighty
Power - my power
This power - my power

Calling out for

Power - streaming through me
I will let out the angel or the beast
This power - will make you see
As the lightning strikes your pain will be released

This power - streaming through me
I will let out the angel or the beast
This power - will make you see
As the lightning strikes your pain will be released

Free me - that's what I hear you
Screaming - in misery
Free me - from this pain while
Screaming - kneel before mighty
Power - my power
This power - my power


12. Kill It with Fire

Music & lyrics by Johansson
Alone in the prison I made of my mind
Like many mornings before
I stare in the ceiling until I go blind
It's hard to take anymore

I ask from the fools how they slumber away
With all the evil around
But no one can answer and no one can say
And there's no peace to be found

A slumbering demon awakes in the night
An ocean away
If we are to live we will have to unite

Kill it with fire!
Burning higher!

At five in the morning I'm drowning my fears
It seems the right thing to do
A blanket of calm in this valley of tears
Tomorrow rises anew

A slumbering demon awakes in the night
An ocean away
If we are to live we will have to unite
Kill it with fire!
Burning higher!

Like cockroaches baking in sunlight of day
The world is bustling along
While lawyers and bankers are nibbling away
We have to try to stay strong

A slumbering demon awakes in the night
An ocean away
If we are to live we will have to unite
Kill it with fire!
Burning higher!

Kill it with fire!
Burning higher!


13. Fireborn

Music & lyrics by Porra
I was born within a dream
And awoken by a thunderous scream
Fireborn, burning within
I can feel it burn under my skin

Hold my head up high
Tonight we're gonna fly
Be all that we can be
Go as far as we can see
Fly high I'll tell you why
Tonight we take the sky
Fireborn

Chase the light, capture the star
As you race the night, be what you are
Fireborn call out your name
When you come with me, we are the same

Hold my head up high
Tonight we're gonna fly
Be all that we can be
Go as far as we can see
Fly high I'll tell you why
Tonight we take the sky
Fireborn

Hold my head up high
Tonight we're gonna fly
Be all that we can be
Go as far as we can see
Fly high I'll tell you why
Tonight we take the sky

And now head up high
Tonight we're gonna fly
Be all that we can be
Go as far as we can see
Fly high I'll tell you why
Tonight we take the sky
Fireborn


14. Hunter

Music by Kupiainen
Lyrics by Kotipelto, Vänskä
Those cold black eyes
With their empty stare
Revealing nothing at all what's on the way
And when the air is filled with fear

He's lurking in the shade unrevealed
And waiting for a time to come to hit and run
His aim is concealed

He is like a shark
When he smells some blood
He goes blind and insane
As he is chasing down his prey
And from the dark he rises
And he'll bring evil to light
He won't be keeping it at bay

Oooh, darkness follows him
Death will he bring

He's hunting from the dusk till dawn
He's on the move, he's on the loose and silently
He is sneaking upon his game
There is no warning there will be mourning
He makes his kill

Feeling no shame

He is like a shark
When he smells some blood
He goes blind and insane
As he is chasing down his prey
And from the dark he rises
And he'll bring evil to light
He won't be keeping it at bay

Oooh, darkness follows him
Death will he bring

Those cold black eyes
With their empty stare

He is like a shark
When he smells some blood
He goes blind and insane
As he is chasing down his prey
And from the dark he rises
And he'll bring evil to light
He won't be keeping it at bay
