1. Blank File
(Tony Kakko)

It is your new best friend, new eye in your private den
And you can find the world inside it every day
They know what you did today, hear everything you say
And when they send you mail,
they know where you will go sometime next day

They know your life, they have a file about you
They built your life, so they...

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Caught in the web again, inside your private den
Where you can go to moon
or meet some people you will never see
You are a file in there, money in an open fair
You're a slave among the slaves, waiting for Y2K with a fear

They know your life, they have a file about you
They built your life, so they...

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Still they try to take over, control my life,
but no one can do it but me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Oh oh oh

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

I am waiting, hoping and praying
to see - how this - will end - when they go down

How can it be, that you cannot see
what they are doing with thee
You are a life, new file in their memory, now they

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Oh oh oh

How can it be, that you cannot see
what they are doing with thee
spending your time, living your life
inside their machines there is one empty file, it is me




2. My Land
(Tony Kakko)

My own land has closed its gates on me
All alone in world, it's scaring me

I am here to prove you wrong
I'm accused to something I live for

In my dreamland, there's one who understands
A friendly soul, trusting life in your hand

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave
Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own

My old land is but a pile of sand
Cold and bare but something still is there

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave
Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own

I'm a (true) patriot, you are my land,
you have my soul, you have all I had
Now I am here, and I want it back

In my dreams, I climb the hills I see
and let a gentle breeze lead me to
plains I once have seen and
Clear blue sky, I swim in lakes I find
I build a house right there
that you can't take, never take away

I am here to claim my land
you can't keep me away, forever

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave

Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own




3. 8th Commandment
(Tony Kakko)

All those lies suit you. They are custom made to drive
you out of reality. Lies are true for you. You know, what
you do is reaching a point of insanity.

When you wake from your dream you know what is true?
Ring of bell inside your head is playing with your mind

Remember to pray, and what the Bible says and you will
live thru eternity You haven't hear of this?
There is something you missed - That it will cost you so heavily.

You must sleep in the stinking bed that you've made
When you're down where you belong hear what they say, yeah.

Stay for a while, stay forever. Sing for the times you are
bound to betray. Run for your life, run forever, your eyes
tell a lie and the liar must always die.

When you're done with him, you know where you have
been, He will treat us all equally.
Can you feel the fire burning

You must sleep in the stinking bed that you've made.
When you're down where you belong hear what they say, yeah.

Stay for a while, stay forever. Sing for the times you are
bound to betray. Run for your life, run forever, your eyes
tell a lie and the liar must always die.




4. Replica
(Tony Kakko)

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind
your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the
meaning of this all. Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of
what I used to be. It's easier when you don't see me
standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit
here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steal, the kind them bullets
cannot see, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean, new life to fill
the hole in me. I had no name, last December, Christmas
Eve I can't remember. I was in a constant pain, I saw
your shadow in the rain. I painted all your pigeons red,
I wish I had stayed home instead, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over...

Raising from the place I've been, and trying to keep
my home base clean. Now I'm here and won't go back believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream, I'm floating in a
silent scream. No-one placing blame on me
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...




5. Kingdom For A Heart
(Tony Kakko)

What the hell are you standing there for, expecting
me to help you, when I'm down myself
Waiting my saviour, my world is flooding over, there's
no room for air, I can't breathe, I would give a kingdom
for one more day

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for (just) one more day

What the hell am I waiting here for, expecting you to
come and give away your life
Just for a moment of my time, have a hole where I
should have a heart, I'm made of wood, I'm falling
apart, I would give a kingdom for one more day.

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for one more day.

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

Now I know I will never love you, I'm (a) man without
a heart, I'm not allowed to feel human feelings
I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas, I'd give it
away in a moment. If I only had one moment

I'd give - a kingdom
I'd give a kingdom
I'd give - a kingdom to just one more day

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart




6. Fullmoon
(Tony Kakko)

Sitting in a corner all alone,
staring from the bottom of his soul,
watching the night come in from the window

It'll all collapse tonight, the fullmoon is here again
In sickness and in health, understanding so demanding
It has no name, there's one for every season
Makes him insane to know

Running away from it all
"I'll be safe in the cornfields", he thinks Hunted by his own,
again he feels the moon rising on the sky

Find a barn which to sleep in, but can he hide anymore
Someones at the door, understanding too demanding
Can this be wrong, it's love that is not ending
Makes him insane to know

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run way)
Fullmoon is on the sky and He's not a man anymore
See the change in Him but can't
(run away run away, run away)
See what became out of her man... Fullmoon

Swimming across the bay,
the nite is gray, so calm today
She doesn't wanna wait.
"We've gotta make the love complete tonight..."

In the mist of (the or your?) morning he cannot fight anymore
Thousands moons or more, he's been howling
Knock on the door, and scream that is soon ending
Mess on the floor again...

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and is not a man anymore
Sees the change in him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her man

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and is not a man anymore
Sees the change in him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her darling man

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and is not a man anymore

See what became out of her man




7. Letter To Dana
(Tony Kakko)

Dana, my darling, I'm writing to you.
'Cause your father passed away, it was a beautiful day
And I don't want to bother You anymore,
I used to hope you'd come back
But not anymore Dana.

My eyes might have betrayed me, but I have seen
Your picture on the cover of a filthy magazine
And I think my heart just cannot handle that
Dana, my darling, would be so bad.

Dana my darling I'm writing to you
'Cause your mother passed away it was a really rainy day
And I didn't mean to bother you anymore
Your mother wished... Come visit your fathers grave, Dana

Your father disowned you because you have sinned
But he did forgive you in condition he was in
And I hope you won't do those things anymore
Dana My darling I'm waiting for

Little Dana O'Hara oh, oh Dana my dear,
How I wish that my Dana was here
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
to travel away, far away

No, you can't surprise me anymore, oh oh
I've seen it all before
But it seems I cannot let you go
Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana

And I think that I told you, I'd wait for you forever
Now I know someone else's holding you,
so, for the first time in my life - I must lie
Lie's a sin, mess that I am in,
Love is not the thing I feel know
I promise you... I won't write again 'til the sun sets
behind your grave

Dana, oh, Dana I'm writing to you, I heard you passed
away it was a beautiful day
I'm old and I feel time will come for me, my diary's
pages are full of thee

Oh Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
How I wish that my Dana was here
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
to travel away, far away

Little Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
How I wish that my Dana was here
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
to travel away, far away




8. Unopened
(Tony Kakko)

Another misspelled rhyme
written in the book of time
In one page I've spent all my life
Ink ain't even dry. I've been living in a lie?
How could I trust in someone of your kind?

And I got today another letter in the mail
I can't read it here, not today
And when years go by
the unopened letter meets my eye
I'm older and wiser, but still afraid

What if I read it and it is - full of love
How can I face it if I am wrong

Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?

I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all

Oh oh oh

What if you'll tell me that I am wrong

Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?

I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all

Do you feel? Do you care about me?
(...)
I am here, would you come and find me, yeah
Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?

(enveloping) I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all
Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?
I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all




9. Picturing The Past
(Tony Kakko)

In a house where no one never sleeps,
lays a man who sees more with his eyes
Picturing the past before him,
in a bed, alone, with clothes on
Paying for service he doesn't really need

With his eyes, he sees more love and lust
more tears, far too much to handle
Can't tell a soul, not this time, they'd lock him right up
Too much of burning bushes too much for his weak soul

In his mind, oh so jaded, he's gone too far behind
Of all the visions seen, this one makes him scream

He cannot live neither die in this world
Burning sensation inside, you know how that hurts?
Making up for the crimes of your life
With scythe as your sword,
you must fight 'till the end of time

Don't look behind, or you will fall through the time
Only time can make you see behind of the curtain hiding
secrets. Your time is up when you see the light

You can live as a noble man but when time,
You won't be left behind

With the sound of time ringing in his head,
He leaves the house where no-one sleeps
Job well done knowing that at least one will be pleased

Hiding is always useless, pictures will fade with time

Seeking for a winner of the day, prize of the life is here
Of all the visions seen this one makes him scream

He cannot live neither die in this world
Burning sensation inside, you know how that hurts?
Making up for the crimes of your life
With scythe as your sword,
you must fight 'till the end of time




10. Destruction Preventer
(Tony Kakko)

I'm at home where my coat's hanging,
I'm a shepherd of raising sun
I believe and trust in my land,
I control, I am in charge of
Everyones future, red button is mine

Miss the times when I was roaring
in the center of all mankind
I said how they should live your life,
I controlled, I was in charge, now
I think the red storm would rise and destroy us all.

Heat in the center, destruction preventer
If you release one, you release 'em all
You can't defend Her, kneel down and surrender
Your end is at hand, if they blow

If you go and have their way now,
you will never have your choice
Catch a breath of air in your lungs,
it might be your never get to
do it again because this now this is the end, yeah!

Oh oh oh

Yesterday I saw a light, moving fast across the sky
Now I see glow, left and right,
Stars are falling down tonight, I fear...
And the pouring rain, eating my green grass,
leaving a stain
Never healing back to be the same

Now tell me who won here tonight
The price, of winning worthless fight
We'll make the same mistakes again
Unless, this is truly the end
Heat in the center, destruction preventer
If you release one, you release 'em all
You can't defend Her, kneel down and surrender
Your end is at hand, if they blow




11. Mary-Lou
(Tony Kakko)

Mamas put your babies to sleep, story too cruelsome for
them this is. In Junior high she said goodbye to her parents and ran
away with a boy. She left her family warm and kind, all of her friends said
"you're out of your mind". Life of her own she would find,
it's monday and she's gotta grind.

A Job as a waitress she sure was to find, beautiful face,
mind of a child. Boy got her pregnant, Mary-Lou cried," For this I am
too young oh why did you lie" You said "it's okay if we do it today", I was
so scared that you would go away. "Despite all the papers been signed,
mama take me back be so kind".

Only a child, reckless and wild, needs to come
home again. He promised the moon but won't marry you.
Nothing to do, eating for two, he's goin' out with
someone new. Sunshine or rain, it's all the same, life isn't gray
oh Mary-Lou.

Mamas do your children still sleep, in the safe of their
cradles so sweet. Story I told you I have forseen, Your little angel ain't
always so clean. Days to come aren't easy to see, You can change 'em but
it isn't free. I see that you don't believe, ooo-oo, but you will see.

1. ...Of Silence

It truly makes the most beautiful music
Everything it has to give
It's everywhere hiding the listener
Without it I could not live
...Silence




2. Weballergy
(Tony Kakko)

We only have one candle
To burn down to the handle
No matter what they say
If you live like a man, You live in tales you tell

To rage and run like a fool
You need no brain, your best tool
Stay put and as they say
Live like a man, the only way you can

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
You cannot see the real thing underneath
- Naked truth revealed

You type your name on one row
To get dosed-up tomorrow
You live in a CC dream, with your machine
It's your goal supreme

You think you have it all now
The wisdom, power, know-how
Can't even think you're wrong
This is the way the brain of a male is made

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
You cannot see the real thing underneath
- Naked light revealed

If you live, you will die
You won't live forever stuck in time
Ebb and flow, push and tow
You must keep it real to find her

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
Can't even see the real thing underneath
- Naked light revealed

If you live, you will die
You won't live forever stuck in time
Ebb and flow, push and tow
You must keep it real to find her




3. False News Travel Fast
(Tony Kakko)

I Look out the Window, I see the sun in the sky, for now,
it is not for me
Stories of old times, Black Book of Lies with no reason nor rhymes
No secrets, no disguise

Colour of the jealousy that hangs over thee
Why don't you believe, You still do not know me

Books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
Remorseful and pale
As always
These news travel fast

Walking cross snowfields, how can I trust in this path I leave
fading behind me
Pleading not guilty. It's in the nature of humankind
Installed in a manchild

Life can -do it in many ways, toss dirt on your face
But I am your man, and for you I do all I can

[Repeat chorus]

Standing on the station, watching your train slowly disappear
I'm only shell of a man, I thought you knew who I am...

[Solos]

But go ahead and blame the fool
You have beliefs that aren't true
I have not lived the life you read from

The books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
My life is no game
It's a real shame the false news travel fast

Why do you keep me in the agony?
"The Book of true tales"
How can you hate and keep me in this agony?
"The Mirror of tragedy"
I haven't lied, I haven't cheated!
"The Book of true tales"
What do you think? What do you see when you look in
"The Mirror of tragedy"

And I'm still your man, and for you I do all I can

Books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
Remorseful and pale
as in past, these news travel fast

The books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
My life is no game
It's a real shame the false news travel fast




4. The End Of This Chapter
(Tony Kakko)

[Chapter One]
I gave you my time
I gave you my whole life
I gave you my love, every dime
They told me it was... a crime

Do you remember?
Or did it all go in vain...

[Chapter Two]
I looked in the light, I sat in your coalmine
The promise they made, I should keep?
Make sure that we would never meet

I can't remember
The promise I made so deep

Tell me that past times won't die...
Tell me that old lies are alive

[Chapter Three]
Across darkened skies, I travelled without a light
I sank in the well of my mind
Too deep, never to be found

I can't remember...
How could you be so vain...

Tell me that past times won't die...
Tell me that old lies are alive
Love that expired too long time ago
Kills me, it thrills me...

[Chapter Four]
You have new love and
It looks good on you
I have never wished you dead, yet.

You can now have all the things I could never give to you
Look out the window "c'est moi"...
[Chapter Five]
I'm sorry, I am here
I'm not sure if it should bring you fear
I whisper in your ear
Why is he here'

[Chapter six]
While you are sleeping, I steal your ear ring
Light you one candle, this anger I handle

They said I won't find you, but now I'm beside you
I'm not all that stable
You should know by now that you are mine...

Tell me that past times won't die... Tell me that old lies are alive

I tell you that past times won't die...
I tell you that old lies are alive
Love due to expire too long time ago
Kills me, it will kill you...too

Past times won't die...
I tell you old lies are alive
Hate to conspire too long time ago
Kill me, please kill me before

Tell you that past times won't die...




5. Black Sheep
(Tony Kakko)

In love with the maiden, The flower of winter
Lowbrow children, in grove of the inland
How many times heart's gone thru the grinder
wherever you look there's a painful reminder

Singing a love song, words of a stranger
The howling miller, never to face her

Temple of the evil, Temple of the weak
no one knows how bad he feels
Late-night innuendo, tempetation of the key
"Live with the Blacksheep, live with me"

Insanity, blessing for those born to hate you
Burned by the embers of love, it is so cruel
Howling the night, for sun of the midnight
Serving the people, condemned you in the eternal night

of the lost song, words of the stranger
The howling miller, never to face her

[chorus]




6. Land Of The Free
(Tony Kakko)

From the shadows of the stars
Comes a man with no face, soul of million scars
An evil Count, The End of Days
There are many ways to

Take full advantage when we cannot see
Make us live in an part-time reality

To get a hold of the only seed
We must make them all see bloodshed that is he
Splitting hairs is not the key
Water and fire

Take full advantage when we cannot see
Make us live in an part-time reality

One flash of light and for good we are gone
No-one to wonder what we have done
New breed of ignorance, new circle will start
Unless we try real hard

[solo]

When you wake up, was it a dream
All the sick paradoxes all around the world
In the mean time, Count, he leaves
From the land of the free

Take full advantage when we cannot see
Make us live in an part-time reality
So he takes full advantage if we cannot see
Makes us live in an full-time insanity




7. Last Drop Falls
(Tony Kakko)

When I'm looking in your eyes
Everything seems to fade away
After all these years we had do I know you now
Have I trusted blindly in your love, too many times

You said: "hey, my love, I'm sorry but we can't go on 'cause
I'm in love with someone else"
Tell me, what do you want me to say
When you treat me this way

Oh I love you, maybe
And I hope it goes away
Oh, how I want you daily
I know it's gonna stay

You are so self satisfied
Always ready for a ride
Double crossing, lousy cheat, love you anyway
You have warm and tender devils soul, you are so low

I can hear you say: "I'm sorry, should we still go on,
I'm not in love with that someone else"
Tell me, what do you want me to say
When you treat me this way

Oh I love you, maybe'
And I hope it goes away
Oh, how I want you daily
Tell me now that...

I have found the whore in you
Why can't I tell you no
Time will show, the last word is for me
If you fail to see the problem we have, one room full of walls
Jar of love isn't dry until the last drop falls
The moment I will step aside, you're ready for another ride
Walking in the cool night air without underwear
You have red light burning in your soul, I've seen the glow

In every dream I have I say: "I'm not in love with you"
But every day I say I do
You have messed with my head so many times
Forced me to love you [spoken]

Now that...
I have found the whore in you
why Can't I tell you no
Time will show, the last word is for me
If you fail to see the problem we have, one room full of walls
I will try until the last drop falls




8. San Sebastian (Revisited)
(Tony Kakko)

I could see my life, short film passing my eyes
I tried to look away from her, as always I just tried

Sweetness in her eyes, gone thru one million miles
How could I turn my back on her, the sweetest thing alive

I was eager, day time dreamer, waiting time when I'd come alive

Sun of San Sebastian eighteen years young today
She's all I ever dreamed, but now my skies are turning gray
It was good I got to know her well, because it made me see
That the sun of San Sebastian is just too hot for me

Look what I have done to my San Sebastian
I wasted all my childhood dreams by staring at the sun

Back in time with a dream of mine
I try to find my way back to life

Burning fever, night time screamer, waiting time when I'd come alive

Sun of San Sebastian oh why I cannot stay
She's all I ever dreamed, but now my skies are turning gray
It was good I got to know her well, because it made me see
That the sun of San Sebastian Is just too hot for me

Every single day, for the rest of my way
I live without my love, my God, I have to stay in shade
When I'm old and gray, I remember that day
When she came, that perfect dame and she blew me away

I was eager, day time dreamer, waiting time when I'd come alive

Oo-oo...
Was it good I got to know her well although it made me see
That the sun of San Sebastian is far too hot for me (yeah)
Oo-oo..
Now I live my life in shades and I am married to the moon
And the sun of San Sebastian is warming someone new




9. Sing In Silence
(Tony Kakko)

You were daddy's girl nice and sweet
Never in trouble mommy's honey
Little child who just couldn't see
The pressure from her so called friends
Was simply too much

The monkey slowly climbed on her back
Offering an aid for her pain
Giving love and care
No-one cared, no-one cared...

Fragile like a rose on the snow
Eating all your strength and your money
Walking in the shade day and night
Never letting sunshine in your eyes like before

Cannot shake the monkey off your back
Did I see a spark on your eye
Was it just the last light of hope
That died, hope that died

"Forgive me, Father, my daily sin..."

How can I forgive you, never leave you
You know that if you live like, you will die like
Haven of Emotion, Mournful Ocean
Heiress of the Evening Sings in silence

"I need to have now, my daily sin..."

For all your life I prayed for time
To show you where the light lies
Now this is the end
One rose for the memory of the innosence...

"I know, my Father, I cannot win..."

Never will forgive you, never leave you
You know that if you live like, you will die like
How can I erase your pain and aid you
When Death wants to kiss you and you want kiss Him back...




10. Revontulet
(Instrumental)




11. Tallulah
(Tony Kakko)

Remember when we used to look how sun set far away'
And how you said: "this is never over"
I believed your every word and I quess you did too
But now you're saying : "hey, let's think this over"

You take My hand and pull me next to you, so close to you
I have a feeling you don't have the words
I found one for you, kiss your cheak, say bye, and walk away
Don't look back cause I am crying

I remember little things, you hardly ever do
Tell me why.
I don't know why it's over
I remember shooting stars, the walk we took that night
I hope your wish came true, mine betrayed me

You let my hand go, and you fake a smile for me
I have a feeling you don't know what to do
I look deep in your eyes, hesitate a while...
Why are you crying'

Tallulah, It's easier to live alone than fear the time it's over
Tallulah, find the words and talk to me ,oh, Tallulah,
This could be... heaven

I see you walking hand in hand with long-haired drummer of the band
In love with her or so it seems, he's dancing with my beauty queen
Don't even dare to say you hi, still swallowing the goodbye
But I know the feelings still alive- still alive

[Solo]

I lost my patience once, so do you punish me now
I'll always love you, no matter what you do
I'll win you back for me if you give me a chance
But there is one thing you must understand

[Chorus]




12. Wolf And Raven
(Tony Kakko)

Grant me a wish, my master
Take heed of me
I have been loyal servant
Heartfelt, humble

Gave up - what belongs to me
Gave up my greed
My self-examination
Made me see, to be me

I am now like Judas, done
Ashamed of what I've become
Fear for life I wear as a ring
To bask in your favor, I will kill the king

You say I am invincible
I cannot die,
I know, but anyway
The words, they maim me

Grant me a wish, my master
Compassion, please
I'd like be a human
...maybe one day

I am now like Judas, done
Ashamed of what I've become
Fear of life I wear as a ring
To bask in your favor, I will kill the king

[Entreaty:] let me go
Master, I hate you so
How can I sleep my nights
When my whole being cries

I tried to be like everyone
Open my soul
But what I had to give
Resulted loathing

Enchanted by the power
Licked by the grace
One beautiful black flower
The end of the human race

With pride now face my faith
King and Queen now lie in state
Fear for life I wear as a ring
I bask in your favor, I have killed the king

[Entreaty:] let me go
Master, I hate you so
How can I sleep my nights
When my whole being cries

I had a nightmare
The Wolf eating The Raven

Entrails of life on my plate
And I ate 'em..

Interested in what I see
Try that Rorcharch test on me
Have you seen the beauty of the
Enticing beast

[Entreaty:] let me go
Master, I hate you so
I cannot sleep my nights
When my whole being cries




13. The Power Of One
(Tony Kakko)

Father I have killed many angels,
I think.
I will now walk to the sea.
I hope you will someday forgive me
Please moor
my empty boat on a pier

I can blame for the blue blood that runs in my veins.
But I seem to forget that we are all the same.

In your own blaze of hate you've spawn a fear in many lives
You've taken action thinking it was all said on the signs.
You cannot heal the feeling burning deep inside your spine
You now collapse, cave in revealing scabby marks of life

Mother I've seen too much, I hate to live my life.
Forgot every word you told me, stubborn little child, (angel of your life)
I have to find my Eden now, the gates I left behind.
But the pain will remain.
No power to gain.

Now I have time to dwell on, self-awareness, dreadful crime.
I saw colors too bright, not knowing that I was blind.
I slayed a man who took a chance and drank the forbidden wine.
The map I draw reveals that I have been complete, machine, in team.

Father I've seen too much, I hate to live my life.
Forgot every word you told me, stubborn little child, (angel of your life)
I have to find my Eden now, the gates I left behind.
The pain will remain.
No power to gain.

Mother where's your son.
When has this begun'
Who has been the fool'

No one was born to be a servant or a slave.
Who can tell me the color of the rain'
In the world that we live in, the things said and done
They can well overrun
the power of one.

No one was born to be a servant etc.

To leave and let die
To give hope and take life
Is that what you're here for'

To think you are right
To make sure it won't fly
Is a making of a hate crime

In the homes of the brave,
In the homes of the land slaves,
We are all the same

I need to believe.
There's more than the eye can see
All colors of rainbow.

No one was born to be a slave
Seek the past and place the blame
Tell me the color of the rain
No one was born to be a master

In the land we live, we die
praise the oneness, praise the lie
To bind a web around the faker
We will need a true
Rainmaker

"Children of Abel, Children of Cain
Can live in harmony, without shame
The keys that I grant thee, The Sacred Land
Are dry desert sand on the palm of your hand
Without the water, the wisdom of past
Will run through your fingers, forgotten so fast
Thus now when I leave you, I'm truly blind
This blindness, this blessing, the hope of mankind..."




14. Respect The Wilderness

Winter in here ain't as cold as they say
We have nature, yes, we know the way
Accomodation in the lap of the nature
Can give you a moving response,
If you have the time...

Violate the law of the wild, see her lose her temper
Drink the wine from her stream
Have a time, she's there for thee

Build the campfire in a place you know safe
And then see that you put it out right
Can you see trail of garbage in there
Maybe not, and that is a sign to follow

Violate the law of the wild, see her lose her temper
Drink the wine from her stream
Have a time, she's there for thee

You are still the number one
Wilderness, my soul
We may have or lose it all
Respect the wilderness, Respect the life
Save the nature for your unborn child

In the summertime we have night with no night
In the winter she will hide the light
Over the hills, hear the call of the wild
You have yearning to get there, Lapland, madness

Violate the law of the wild, see her lose her temper
Drink the wine from her stream
Have a time, she's there for thee

You are still the number one
Wilderness, my soul
We may have or lose it all
Respect the wilderness, Respect the life
Save the nature for your unborn child

2. Weballergy
(Tony Kakko)

We only have one candle
To burn down to the handle
No matter what they say
If you live like a man, You live in tales you tell

To rage and run like a fool
You need no brain, your best tool
Stay put and as they say
Live like a man, the only way you can

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
You cannot see the real thing underneath
- Naked truth revealed

You type your name on one row
To get dosed-up tomorrow
You live in a CC dream, with your machine
It's your goal supreme

You think you have it all now
The wisdom, power, know-how
Can't even think you're wrong
This is the way the brain of a male is made

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
You cannot see the real thing underneath
- Naked light revealed

If you live, you will die
You won't live forever stuck in time
Ebb and flow, push and tow
You must keep it real to find her

You let the phone line bring it home to you
The life, the lies, the dreams
Can't even see the real thing underneath
- Naked light revealed

If you live, you will die
You won't live forever stuck in time
Ebb and flow, push and tow
You must keep it real to find her




3. Kingdom For A Heart
(Tony Kakko)

What the hell are you standing there for, expecting
me to help you, when I'm down myself
Waiting my saviour, my world is flooding over, there's
no room for air, I can't breathe, I would give a kingdom
for one more day

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for (just) one more day

What the hell am I waiting here for, expecting you to
come and give away your life
Just for a moment of my time, have a hole where I
should have a heart, I'm made of wood, I'm falling
apart, I would give a kingdom for one more day.

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for one more day.

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

Now I know I will never love you, I'm (a) man without
a heart, I'm not allowed to feel human feelings
I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas, I'd give it
away in a moment. If I only had one moment

I'd give - a kingdom
I'd give a kingdom
I'd give - a kingdom to just one more day

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart




4. Sing In Silence
(Tony Kakko)

You were daddy's girl nice and sweet
Never in trouble mommy's honey
Little child who just couldn't see
The pressure from her so called friends
Was simply too much

The monkey slowly climbed on her back
Offering an aid for her pain
Giving love and care
No-one cared, no-one cared...

Fragile like a rose on the snow
Eating all your strength and your money
Walking in the shade day and night
Never letting sunshine in your eyes like before

Cannot shake the monkey off your back
Did I see a spark on your eye
Was it just the last light of hope
That died, hope that died

"Forgive me, Father, my daily sin..."

How can I forgive you, never leave you
You know that if you live like, you will die like
Haven of Emotion, Mournful Ocean
Heiress of the Evening Sings in silence

"I need to have now, my daily sin..."

For all your life I prayed for time
To show you where the light lies
Now this is the end
One rose for the memory of the innosence...

"I know, my Father, I cannot win..."

Never will forgive you, never leave you
You know that if you live like, you will die like
How can I erase your pain and aid you
When Death wants to kiss you and you want kiss Him back...




5. False News Travel Fast
(Tony Kakko)

I Look out the Window, I see the sun in the sky, for now,
it is not for me
Stories of old times, Black Book of Lies with no reason nor rhymes
No secrets, no disguise

Colour of the jealousy that hangs over thee
Why don't you believe, You still do not know me

Books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
Remorseful and pale
As always
These news travel fast

Walking cross snowfields, how can I trust in this path I leave
fading behind me
Pleading not guilty. It's in the nature of humankind
Installed in a manchild

Life can -do it in many ways, toss dirt on your face
But I am your man, and for you I do all I can

[Repeat chorus]

Standing on the station, watching your train slowly disappear
I'm only shell of a man, I thought you knew who I am...

[Solos]

But go ahead and blame the fool
You have beliefs that aren't true
I have not lived the life you read from

The books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
My life is no game
It's a real shame the false news travel fast

Why do you keep me in the agony?
"The Book of true tales"
How can you hate and keep me in this agony?
"The Mirror of tragedy"
I haven't lied, I haven't cheated!
"The Book of true tales"
What do you think? What do you see when you look in
"The Mirror of tragedy"

And I'm still your man, and for you I do all I can

Books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
Remorseful and pale
as in past, these news travel fast

The books of true tales, Mirrors of tragedy
My life is no game
It's a real shame the false news travel fast




6. Last Drop Falls
(Tony Kakko)

When I'm looking in your eyes
Everything seems to fade away
After all these years we had do I know you now
Have I trusted blindly in your love, too many times

You said: "hey, my love, I'm sorry but we can't go on 'cause
I'm in love with someone else"
Tell me, what do you want me to say
When you treat me this way

Oh I love you, maybe
And I hope it goes away
Oh, how I want you daily
I know it's gonna stay

You are so self satisfied
Always ready for a ride
Double crossing, lousy cheat, love you anyway
You have warm and tender devils soul, you are so low

I can hear you say: "I'm sorry, should we still go on,
I'm not in love with that someone else"
Tell me, what do you want me to say
When you treat me this way

Oh I love you, maybe'
And I hope it goes away
Oh, how I want you daily
Tell me now that...

I have found the whore in you
Why can't I tell you no
Time will show, the last word is for me
If you fail to see the problem we have, one room full of walls
Jar of love isn't dry until the last drop falls
The moment I will step aside, you're ready for another ride
Walking in the cool night air without underwear
You have red light burning in your soul, I've seen the glow

In every dream I have I say: "I'm not in love with you"
But every day I say I do
You have messed with my head so many times
Forced me to love you [spoken]

Now that...
I have found the whore in you
why Can't I tell you no
Time will show, the last word is for me
If you fail to see the problem we have, one room full of walls
I will try until the last drop falls




7. Respect The Wilderness

Winter in here ain't as cold as they say
We have nature, yes, we know the way
Accomodation in the lap of the nature
Can give you a moving response,
If you have the time...

Violate the law of the wild, see her lose her temper
Drink the wine from her stream
Have a time, she's there for thee

Build the campfire in a place you know safe
And then see that you put it out right
Can you see trail of garbage in there
Maybe not, and that is a sign to follow

Violate the law of the wild, see her lose her temper
Drink the wine from her stream
Have a time, she's there for thee

You are still the number one
Wilderness, my soul
We may have or lose it all
Respect the wilderness, Respect the life
Save the nature for your unborn child

In the summertime we have night with no night
In the winter she will hide the light
Over the hills, hear the call of the wild
You have yearning to get there, Lapland, madness

Violate the law of the wild, see her lose her temper
Drink the wine from her stream
Have a time, she's there for thee

You are still the number one
Wilderness, my soul
We may have or lose it all
Respect the wilderness, Respect the life
Save the nature for your unborn child




8. Fullmoon
(Tony Kakko)

Sitting in a corner all alone,
staring from the bottom of his soul,
watching the night come in from the window

It'll all collapse tonight, the fullmoon is here again
In sickness and in health, understanding so demanding
It has no name, there's one for every season
Makes him insane to know

Running away from it all
"I'll be safe in the cornfields", he thinks Hunted by his own,
again he feels the moon rising on the sky

Find a barn which to sleep in, but can he hide anymore
Someones at the door, understanding too demanding
Can this be wrong, it's love that is not ending
Makes him insane to know

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run way)
Fullmoon is on the sky and He's not a man anymore
See the change in Him but can't
(run away run away, run away)
See what became out of her man... Fullmoon

Swimming across the bay,
the nite is gray, so calm today
She doesn't wanna wait.
"We've gotta make the love complete tonight..."

In the mist of (the or your?) morning he cannot fight anymore
Thousands moons or more, he's been howling
Knock on the door, and scream that is soon ending
Mess on the floor again...

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and is not a man anymore
Sees the change in him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her man

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and is not a man anymore
Sees the change in him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her darling man

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and is not a man anymore

See what became out of her man




9. The End Of This Chapter
(Tony Kakko)

[Chapter One]
I gave you my time
I gave you my whole life
I gave you my love, every dime
They told me it was... a crime

Do you remember?
Or did it all go in vain...

[Chapter Two]
I looked in the light, I sat in your coalmine
The promise they made, I should keep?
Make sure that we would never meet

I can't remember
The promise I made so deep

Tell me that past times won't die...
Tell me that old lies are alive

[Chapter Three]
Across darkened skies, I travelled without a light
I sank in the well of my mind
Too deep, never to be found

I can't remember...
How could you be so vain...

Tell me that past times won't die...
Tell me that old lies are alive
Love that expired too long time ago
Kills me, it thrills me...

[Chapter Four]
You have new love and
It looks good on you
I have never wished you dead, yet.

You can now have all the things I could never give to you
Look out the window "c'est moi"...
[Chapter Five]
I'm sorry, I am here
I'm not sure if it should bring you fear
I whisper in your ear
Why is he here'

[Chapter six]
While you are sleeping, I steal your ear ring
Light you one candle, this anger I handle

They said I won't find you, but now I'm beside you
I'm not all that stable
You should know by now that you are mine...

Tell me that past times won't die... Tell me that old lies are alive

I tell you that past times won't die...
I tell you that old lies are alive
Love due to expire too long time ago
Kills me, it will kill you...too

Past times won't die...
I tell you old lies are alive
Hate to conspire too long time ago
Kill me, please kill me before

Tell you that past times won't die...




10. The Power Of One
(Tony Kakko)

Father I have killed many angels,
I think.
I will now walk to the sea.
I hope you will someday forgive me
Please moor
my empty boat on a pier

I can blame for the blue blood that runs in my veins.
But I seem to forget that we are all the same.

In your own blaze of hate you've spawn a fear in many lives
You've taken action thinking it was all said on the signs.
You cannot heal the feeling burning deep inside your spine
You now collapse, cave in revealing scabby marks of life

Mother I've seen too much, I hate to live my life.
Forgot every word you told me, stubborn little child, (angel of your life)
I have to find my Eden now, the gates I left behind.
But the pain will remain.
No power to gain.

Now I have time to dwell on, self-awareness, dreadful crime.
I saw colors too bright, not knowing that I was blind.
I slayed a man who took a chance and drank the forbidden wine.
The map I draw reveals that I have been complete, machine, in team.

Father I've seen too much, I hate to live my life.
Forgot every word you told me, stubborn little child, (angel of your life)
I have to find my Eden now, the gates I left behind.
The pain will remain.
No power to gain.

Mother where's your son.
When has this begun'
Who has been the fool'

No one was born to be a servant or a slave.
Who can tell me the color of the rain'
In the world that we live in, the things said and done
They can well overrun
the power of one.

No one was born to be a servant etc.

To leave and let die
To give hope and take life
Is that what you're here for'

To think you are right
To make sure it won't fly
Is a making of a hate crime

In the homes of the brave,
In the homes of the land slaves,
We are all the same

I need to believe.
There's more than the eye can see
All colors of rainbow.

No one was born to be a slave
Seek the past and place the blame
Tell me the color of the rain
No one was born to be a master

In the land we live, we die
praise the oneness, praise the lie
To bind a web around the faker
We will need a true
Rainmaker

"Children of Abel, Children of Cain
Can live in harmony, without shame
The keys that I grant thee, The Sacred Land
Are dry desert sand on the palm of your hand
Without the water, the wisdom of past
Will run through your fingers, forgotten so fast
Thus now when I leave you, I'm truly blind
This blindness, this blessing, the hope of mankind..."




11. Replica
(Tony Kakko)

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind
your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the
meaning of this all. Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of
what I used to be. It's easier when you don't see me
standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit
here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steal, the kind them bullets
cannot see, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean, new life to fill
the hole in me. I had no name, last December, Christmas
Eve I can't remember. I was in a constant pain, I saw
your shadow in the rain. I painted all your pigeons red,
I wish I had stayed home instead, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over...

Raising from the place I've been, and trying to keep
my home base clean. Now I'm here and won't go back believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream, I'm floating in a
silent scream. No-one placing blame on me
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...




12. My Land
(Tony Kakko)

My own land has closed its gates on me
All alone in world, it's scaring me

I am here to prove you wrong
I'm accused to something I live for

In my dreamland, there's one who understands
A friendly soul, trusting life in your hand

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave
Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own

My old land is but a pile of sand
Cold and bare but something still is there

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave
Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own

I'm a (true) patriot, you are my land,
you have my soul, you have all I had
Now I am here, and I want it back

In my dreams, I climb the hills I see
and let a gentle breeze lead me to
plains I once have seen and
Clear blue sky, I swim in lakes I find
I build a house right there
that you can't take, never take away

I am here to claim my land
you can't keep me away, forever

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave

Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own




13. Black Sheep
(Tony Kakko)

In love with the maiden, The flower of winter
Lowbrow children, in grove of the inland
How many times heart's gone thru the grinder
wherever you look there's a painful reminder

Singing a love song, words of a stranger
The howling miller, never to face her

Temple of the evil, Temple of the weak
no one knows how bad he feels
Late-night innuendo, tempetation of the key
"Live with the Blacksheep, live with me"

Insanity, blessing for those born to hate you
Burned by the embers of love, it is so cruel
Howling the night, for sun of the midnight
Serving the people, condemned you in the eternal night

of the lost song, words of the stranger
The howling miller, never to face her

[chorus]




14. Wolf And Raven
(Tony Kakko)

Grant me a wish, my master
Take heed of me
I have been loyal servant
Heartfelt, humble

Gave up - what belongs to me
Gave up my greed
My self-examination
Made me see, to be me

I am now like Judas, done
Ashamed of what I've become
Fear for life I wear as a ring
To bask in your favor, I will kill the king

You say I am invincible
I cannot die,
I know, but anyway
The words, they maim me

Grant me a wish, my master
Compassion, please
I'd like be a human
...maybe one day

I am now like Judas, done
Ashamed of what I've become
Fear of life I wear as a ring
To bask in your favor, I will kill the king

[Entreaty:] let me go
Master, I hate you so
How can I sleep my nights
When my whole being cries

I tried to be like everyone
Open my soul
But what I had to give
Resulted loathing

Enchanted by the power
Licked by the grace
One beautiful black flower
The end of the human race

With pride now face my faith
King and Queen now lie in state
Fear for life I wear as a ring
I bask in your favor, I have killed the king

[Entreaty:] let me go
Master, I hate you so
How can I sleep my nights
When my whole being cries

I had a nightmare
The Wolf eating The Raven

Entrails of life on my plate
And I ate 'em..

Interested in what I see
Try that Rorcharch test on me
Have you seen the beauty of the
Enticing beast

[Entreaty:] let me go
Master, I hate you so
I cannot sleep my nights
When my whole being cries




15. Land Of The Free
(Tony Kakko)

From the shadows of the stars
Comes a man with no face, soul of million scars
An evil Count, The End of Days
There are many ways to

Take full advantage when we cannot see
Make us live in an part-time reality

To get a hold of the only seed
We must make them all see bloodshed that is he
Splitting hairs is not the key
Water and fire

Take full advantage when we cannot see
Make us live in an part-time reality

One flash of light and for good we are gone
No-one to wonder what we have done
New breed of ignorance, new circle will start
Unless we try real hard

[solo]

When you wake up, was it a dream
All the sick paradoxes all around the world
In the mean time, Count, he leaves
From the land of the free

Take full advantage when we cannot see
Make us live in an part-time reality
So he takes full advantage if we cannot see
Makes us live in an full-time insanity

1. Abandoned, Pleased, Brainwashed, Exploited

Wake up my child, hope is here.
With the vengeance, we have no time to bleed.
My only world filled with fear.
I never saw the sower of the seed.

Where is the world we had. Who can ever save you and your little lives.
A child guides a child guided child.
A child is never guilty. But you should not run free...

The grave is open, let us pray without remorse.
Empty the cradle with fire for them once again.
Why not look through your fingers what they've done.
Your own blood will clean the blood, for now the glory days are gone....

Time has come for everyone, to think what we have done.
Open your eyes and see, it's not a dream.
You aim for a common goal, you are one with your foe.
If only we could wake up soon and scream.

Abandoned, pleased, brainwashed, exploited, madness has a reason.
Throw money at the problem and it will remain.
Your life has no value for them, "violate me and this never ends.
My children will then hate you too."
The grave is open, let us pray without remorse.
Empty the cradle with fire for them once again, tonight.
Why not look through your fingers what they've done.
Your own blood will clean the blood, for now the glory days are gone....

Now, when it seems that we have nothing to believe in.
Maybe we should be waiting for the rock to come.
For our children soon have nothing they should learn.

The grave is open, let us pray without remorse.
Empty the cradle with fire for them once again.
Why not look through your fingers what they've done.
Your own blood will clean the blood, for now the glory days are gone....

Time has come for everyone, to think what we have done.
Open your eyes and see, it's not a dream.
You aim for a common goal, you are one with your foe.
If only we could wake up soon and scream.

Time has come for everyone, to think what we have done.
Open your eyes and see, it's not a dream.
You aim for a common goal, you are one with your foe.
If only we could wake up soon and scream.




2. Gravenimage

We met that night, when the sea ran high.
And I craved for more of that nearlove experience.
Those who the music hath then joined together, are now put asunder....

Remember me, when I lit the fire.
To keep us warm.
On a cold winter morning. Now I pass through the moment.
Can I still recognize a beautiful melody...

I play a note, but hear no sound. Have I lost my love or the wings I found.
When I was young,,,
...and eager to please anyone who had time...

Needed to sing, the very notes I heard.
Had to stay in the shadows and seek for the loneliness.
Nevertheless, the price was higher than I realized.
I was to live alone, ready to make the sacrifice.
Was I in love with you...

My old heart, little harder again. One the light goes out, everything ends.
It is time...ready to cause a scene, ready to make the sacrifice.
Ready to play the note, ready to end the final show.
The only thing I know.

The pain is here. To stay I fear. In my eyes. I can change one note and make you cry.
In this state of mind. Silence is a crime.

How can life be so feigned and cold. I've answered the call of every melody, lovingly.
Did I find the answers to all my questions.

Or a gravenimage of me...

If I found the hidden fountain. Drank the wisdom from it's deep.
Would I have the time to save me. Would I have them both to keep.




3. The Cage
(w/Jens Johansson's solo)

A lifetime ago, with frozen eyes they closed the door.
Suddenly I realized what locks are for. No trusting them anymore, lights - are - out.

Empty the stare, innocent and unaware, dragged out from my home ,my lair.
Earmarked me, hurt me, burned me.

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again.
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend.
I do not have another year in me, you've gotta set me free.

The dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
go around and see another side of the tree.
Freedom has a meaning for me, howl with me.

Fear in the dark, I advice you. You can not see the eyes, they grow behind you....
It's my song they now sing to you.
You stand no chance....

They'll kill for me, steal back my freedom, set me free, it's my minions vs.thee.
Fiery the vengeance, hate will drain me.

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again.
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend.
I do not have another year in me, you've gotta set me free.

The dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
go around and see another side of the tree.
All I want is to be untamed and free, howl and (dream).

The dream is alive, with the moon on the hills every night,
run around and see another side of the dream.
Freedom has a meaning for me, you can't tame me...

You will remember the day you crossed my path.
leave me without a guard and you feel my wrath.
What you have done to me has made me bitter and cruel.
I'll see that all the hate you spread returns to you, you, to you...

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again.
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend.
I do not have another year in me, you've gotta set me free.

The dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
go around and see another side of the tree.
All I want is to be untamed and free, howl and (dream).

The dream is alive, with the moon on the hills every night,
run around and see another side of the dream.
Freedom has a meaning for me, you can't tame me...

The dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
go around and see another side of the tree.
All I want is to be untamed and free, howl and (dream).

The dream is alive, with the moon on the hills every night,
run around and see another side of the dream.
Freedom has a meaning for me..




4. Silver Tongue
(w/Jens Johansson's solo)

Mind, filled with fairytales. New ones every day, don't ask me anything now,
I know what you're waiting.
The curtain to fall.

Names don't mean anything, hear the lady sing.
All human rights are now cancelled, you need to handle.
The dreams of the day.

You've hurt them many times, why apologize.
"They were the ones who were wrong, what are they waiting?" " Give them a vail."

"Oh, be my valentine", play along with an angel with silver tongue, play with a stranger.

I never saw anything so white. Call me ishmael, if it ain't a lie.
I am blinded by your revealing smile.
I can only be guilty of an innocent try.
You think you are right, in a way. It is something I hear every day.

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos.
Life is a play you star on , to you it's all a game.

Why can't I leave today, and escape your funny ways.
You are a one person riot, far in the horizon.
Done for the day.

I outsmart you. I am wise, I defeat you any way I like.
But you got me forced into a fall. I am your slave, down on the floor.

I never saw anything so white. Call me ishmael, if it ain't a lie.
I am blinded by your revealing smile.
I can only be guilty of an innocent try.
You think you are right, in a way. It is something I hear every day.

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos.
Life is a play you star on , to you it's all a game of chaos.
I do feel stronger now, why am I still here with you.
You and your silver tongue, why do I still play with you.

I never saw anything so white. Call me ishmael, if it ain't a lie.
I am blinded by your revealing smile.
I can only be guilty of an innocent try.
You think you are right, in a way. It is something I hear every day.

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos.
Life is a play you star on , to you it's all a game of chaos.
I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos.
Life is a play you star on , to you it's all a game you play with me.




5. The Misery

I write the lines you want me to, with the words.
I dare to use of all the ones that you have taught me, along the years.

You cast a perfect shadow on the paper.
Fade away with sunlight, I fear the way you know me, love can leave a stain...

You steal my only hope and make me stay awake another night.
I wish you bear with me, stay near me.
When the autumn leaves have fallen. Solitude, my pain, the last thing left of me...

If you fall I'll catch, if you love I'll love, and so it goes, my dear, don't be scared,
you'll be safe, this I swear.
If you only love me back.

Seven lonely lies written on Deadwinter's night,
open the only book with the only poem I can read...
In blood I sign my name and seal the midnight with a tear.
Burn the paper, every line for them I cried...

If you fall I'll catch, if you love I'll love, and so it goes, my dear, don't be scared,
you'll be safe, this I swear.
If you only love me back.

I am the Playwrite and you are my Crown, make me cry for your love,
like you've done many times, so I know.
I can't write these storylines without you, lady pain, make me strong,
can't we be together without them forever...

The words I write can only hurt you, sorry for the rain.
Thank you, my only one, you gave me this pain...I leave you gently on the floor,
take one step towards the door.
Where's the letter never written, good night now...

If you fall I'll catch, if you love I'll love, and so it goes, my dear, don't be scared,
you'll be safe, this I swear.
If you only love me back.

If you fall I'll catch, if you love I'll love, and so it goes, my dear, don't be scared,
you'll be safe, this I swear.
If you only love me back.




6. Victoria's Secret

The light escapes her room tonight.
Every little moment tells her, now it's time.
Opening a new scar, closing the wounds with a knife.
No more crying in the lanterns light...

Leave with the first light, go when you still see the moon.
Run for the sunlight, gate is now open for you.

Dancing on the path and singing now you got away.
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on , every day.
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past.
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret...

The Shades of darkness filled her life.
In every single corner you can not turn right.
Night could pass for a day, in her lack of faith, she let it all fade away.
Once more, a cry in the lanterns light...

Lost in the sunlight, leave, you will not see the moon.
Walk for the first time, no one has waited for you...

Dancing on the path and singing now you got away.
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day.
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past.
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret...

Dancing on the path and singing now you got away.
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day.
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past.
Life's there for the ones who love to live and take it all, for it is free...

Dancing on the path and singing now you got away.
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day.
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past.
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret...




7. Champainge Bath
(w/Jens Johansson's solo)

Spare me your tiny talk, kneel down and wash my feet.
Could someone, please, fly you away, out from your misery.
Suck it all in, go ahead and take your daily overdose.
Only do not come and demonstrate me how your mind explodes.

Build yourself a Trojan horse, to stand out in the mass.
Tuck it here before our eyes, then see what comes to pass.
Well - cut version of the turmoil you have caused is on the news.
To present a biased view, for our elevated pastime's due.

The sun won't rise behind you anymore.
Neglected, disconnected.
You seem to need their power even more.
One time more, to die for...

If you - take one step back, you will see what they stuck in your eye.
All the rights for your life are always implied.
If I care what you say there, impersonated form of life.
On your Lilo, limp and oily, list your wishes for the night...

The sun won't rise behind you anymore.
Neglected, disconnected.
You seem to need their power even more.
One time more, to die for...

I'm covered with gauze-like steel.
My mind you've rotten to the core.
High apparitor, hear my appeal.
This thing is not to be allowed to breed.

You must be deaf, dumb and blind.
I loath you and your kind. Die.

You keep good company in a Champagne bath and smile with all your faces.

Our day you grace by showing up in ev'ry place. Speed-dial one, call them,
they come and make us see how once again.
They mistreated you, this fame it sure must be a royal pain.

The sun won't rise behind you anymore.
Neglected, disconnected.
You seem to need their power even more.
One time more, to die for...

I see the sun behind you yet once more.




8. Broken

I was raised from a broken seed, I grew up to be an unwanted weed.
Ever faster the time exceeds me, little harder again to remember...you.

Held a torch for you, when lightning struck me, once again, hope I died for the last time.
Only one I have a thing greater than you, little light on the sky every night.

Morning dew on the field, where I met you.
I was frozen a year, couldn't get through.
Got a sign, not a scar, on my shoulder, I am not quite the man you take me for...

Fell in love with the weakness within me.
Tried to force me the Ring and own me.
Guess you found what you'd think would oblige me, little version of me to consume you...
I'd give my everything to you, follow you thru the garden of oblivion.
If only I could tell you everything, the little things you'll never dare to ask me...

Do you really know me? I might be a God.
Show me that you care and have a cry.
How do you see me?... as the one?
Can you see my blood when I'm bleeding.
How can you love this exile, and how could I desire you.
When my pain is my pain and yours is too...

On this deadwinter's night. Darkness becomes this child.
Bless this night with a tear. For I have none I fear...

Seven lifes of a man, passed before me.
Seven graves, one for every love I've had.
Only once I have broken my so called heart.
Only one made me see why they cry.

Will I learn how to be one of you someday?
Will I still feel the eyes that behold me.
Will I hear what you think, when you see me?
Will it tear me apart if you feel for me...

I 'd give my everything to you, follow you thru the garden of oblivion.
If only I could tell you everything, the little things you'll never dare to ask me...

Do you really know me? I might be a God.
Show me that you care and have a cry.
How do you see me?... as the one?
Can you see my blood when I'm bleeding.
How can you love this exile, and how could I desire you.
When my pain is my pain and your is too...

On this deadwinter's night. Darkness becomes this child.
Bless this night with a tear. For I have none I fear...

Little broken , always been, a part of you belongs to me.
You were never mine to love, but this all has made it easy for me...

Burning feathers, not an angel, Heaven's closed , Hell's sold out.
So I walk on the earth, behind the curtains, hidden from everyone,
until I find a new life to ruin again

On this deadwinter's night. Darkness becomes this child.
Bless this night with a tear. For I have none I fear...

On this deadwinter's night. Darkness becomes this child.
Bless this night with a tear. For I have none I fear...




9. The Ruins Of My Life

The land was then young, I was fighting for it like everyone.
Ready to die for the cause, for my King, for my Lord.

You were my reason to live, to fight another day.
You were the only one for me, and you were only for me.

Another year I would be gone.
The war was leading us so far apart.
I built a house to keep you there.
Waiting for me, waiting...

No one remembers my face nor my name,
In a dream, I'd stay here forever.
Headstone on my grave, words carved in vain...
All these wounds only heal when I'm home.

The Taste of their blood in my mouth, and the scent of victory.
Scarred my soul for life, this man was not me.

Love is a game for the weak to play, they said.
I loved and love made me many times stronger.

Another year I would be gone.
The war was leading us so far apart.
I built a house to keep you there.
Waiting for me, waiting...

No one remembers my face nor my name,
In a dream, I'd stay here forever.
Headstone on my grave, words carved in vain...
All these wounds only heal when I'm home.

"Everything ends...Everything dies...
Now I know the Legends only lived in his lies"

My long and winding road, river and trees by the hills we lived on.
The ruins of my life I find, a signet ring on the ashes, I know my Lord betrayed me,
my reason to live was taken away.
I carry my loved one to the hills we loved, for the last time...

I close your eyes, kiss you goodbye.
The only one who ever loved me.
I'm crushed inside, darling, my life...It shall end here...

Headstone on your grave, words carved in vain...Now the darkness covers me...




10. Draw Me

Blessed with an eye to see things as they are, will you draw me?
Up there on the wall, looking down to us all, you never saw me.
I found a pen, and I outlined a life.
You've never cried, I think I saw a tear in your eye.

Your eyes tell the tale, I will not ask again.
Now I see what you've lost nothing is quite the same.
By the love of my heart, cut my drawing in half, for I think I'm like you... Should you draw me...

Waiting for my evenfall.

Farewell, my passion, you slowly turn pale.
I will long for you warmth, made me feel safe.
I will not draw again, 'till I know it's my time.
I have lived a long life, should I draw me...

Morning's here, I must have....failed

1. Misplaced
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

Sometimes I feel so out of time and place
trapped in a maze
As if I was lost in someone else's life...
The values I should keep in high regard don't mean a thing to me

Do you ever feel a need to go back in time?
A dream of mine...
To travel far away and one day steal back my life
In the end all I can do is to learn I live in a dreamland

This time was not made for me,
I have nowhere to land, no place to rest,
Like a bird, without a nest, I'm gliding
Under the clouds, forevermore

How much suffocated anxiety can be held within?
I was found guilty to a crime against myself
No need to hear the words again,
I live and I'd die for my dreamland

This time was not made for me,
I have nowhere to land, no place to rest,
Like a bird, without a nest, I'm gliding
Under the clouds, forevermore

I'll never have a chance,
I can't understand
I'm a misplaced man
How could this backward land
Learn to understand my dance?
What it's like, when
Every single smile hurts...

I have never felt like home here
Always missing something
People aren't connecting
Am I a misplaced soul?

I live in a perfect Hell,
I try finding my wishing well
When I drop my last tear,
I have accepted this life

A true saint, that I am not,
You have never seen me
'Cause I have always been there,
Standing by your side

[SOLO]

I'll never have a chance,
I can't understand
I'm a misplaced man
How could this backward land
Learn to understand my dance?
What it's like, when

Every single moment pains me...
Never felt like home here
I am missing something
My soul's in a wrong shell?
1. Mimo
(Překlad: Iris)

Někdy si připadám mimo čas a prostor
Lapený v bludišti
Jako bych byl ztracený v životě někoho jiného
Hodnoty, kterých bych si měl vysoce vážit, pro mě nic neznamenají

Pocítil jsi někdy potřebu vrátit se zpátky časem?
Což je můj sen...
Cestovat daleko a jednoho dne ukrást nazpátek svůj život
Konečně jediné, co můžu udělat je pochopit, že žiju ve světě snů

Tato doba nebyla stvořena pro mě
Nemám kde zakotvit, kde spočinout
Jako pták bez hnízda poletuji pod oblaky,
Navěky...

Jak moc dušené úzkosti může být ukrýváno uvnitř
Byl jsem shledán vinným ze zločinu proti sobě samému
Nepotřebuju ta slova slyšet znova
Žiju a zemřel bych pro svůj svět snů

Tato doba nebyla stvořena pro mě
Nemám kde zakotvit, kde spočinout
Jako pták bez hnízda poletuji pod oblaky,
Navěky...

Nikdy nedostanu šanci
Nemůžu nikdy porozumět
Jsem člověk, který je mimo...
Jak by tento zaostalý svět
Mohl někdy porozumět mému tanci?
Jaké to je, když
Každý úsměv bolí

Nikdy jsem se tu necítil jako doma
Pořád mi něco chybí
Lidé nejsou propojení (Nokia-connecting people :-))) finský ftip)
Jsem ztracená duše?

Žiju v dokonalém pekle
Snažím se najít své největší přání
Než uroním svou poslední slzu
Už jsem přijal tento život

Opravdový svatý, kterým já nejsem,
Nikdy jsi mě neviděl
Poněvadž jsem vždycky stál při tobě

[SOLO]

Nikdy nedostanu šanci
Nemůžu nikdy porozumět
Jsem člověk, který je mimo...
Jak by tento zaostalý svět
Mohl někdy porozumět mému tanci?
Jaké to je, když

Každý mě každá chvíle bolí...
Nikdy jsem se tu necítil jako doma
Něco mi tu chybí
Je má duše ve špatné tělesné schránce?





2. Blinded No More
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

Your pretty face seduced me,
Blinded me from how you used me
I walked the long way home,
only to get hurt by you again
The longest glance, oh,
What illusions did I have of you?
A lone reflection splitting in two

You found all seven ways to keep me near,
Near within your reach
You sure knew how to harness love,
But never made me more than want you
I'm not sorry, you will never get more out of me
'Cause I am blinded no more

You sucked out my will to live
You gave me the crown, and killed...
High road would have none to regret
Never left, I took the low road instead

Love is a little death between two little lives,
Nothing more
Now I have myself to live for...

You sucked out my will to live
You gave me the crown, and killed...
High road would have none to regret
Never left, I took the low road instead

Oh, my life out of my hands
I always gave eternal love another chance...
Say the words, I wanna hear... all over again
Consuming love, my only reason...

Nothing is service free,
Such things cannot be healed,
That will do fine for me,
So come here, come, come, come...

And suck out my will to live
You gave me the crown, and killed...
High road would have none to regret
Never left, I took the low road instead

Oh...In the same nightmare again...
Oh...Dark tunnel of love will never end
Oh...Taken for granted again
Oh...Too weak to say it is over, all over

[SOLO]

Oh, my life out of my hands
I always gave eternal love another chance...
Say the words, I wanna hear... all over again
Consuming love, my only reason...

We always seem to end up here and break a lance
Ready to give eternal love another chance...
You say the words, I wanna hear... all over again
Lust is my all consuming reason...
Now, take me again...
2. Už ne oslepený
(Překlad: Iris)

Tvá krásná tvář mě svádí
Oslepuje mě od toho jak mě využíváš
Ušel jsem dlouhou cestu domů
Jen abys mě zase zranila
Nejdelší pohled, ach
Jaké iluze jsem to o tobě měl?
Osamělý obraz se rozpadl napůl

Našla jsi všech 7 způsobů jak mě udržet blízko
Blízko ve svém dosahu
Ty jistě víš jak využívat lásku
Ale nikdy jsi nedokázala nic jiného než abych tě chtěl
Není mi to líto, nic víc ze mě už nedostaneš
Protože už nejsem oslepený

Vysála jsi moji vůli k životu
Nasadila jsi mi korunu a zabila mě...
Na hlavní cestě není čeho litovat
Nikdy neopustím vedlejší cestu a pojedu po ní dál

Láska je malá smrt mezi dvěma malými životy
Nic víc...
Teď mám už pro co žít

Vysála jsi moji vůli k životu
Nasadila jsi mi korunu a zabila mě...
Na hlavní cestě není čeho litovat
Nikdy neopustím vedlejší cestu a pojedu po ní dál

Ach můj život není v mých rukách
Vždycky jsem dával věčné lásce novou šanci
Říkej slova, která chci slyšet...pořád dokola
Spotřebovávám lásku, můj jediný smysl

Nic není zadarmo
Něco se jen tak nezahojí
Tohle mi udělá dobře
Tak pojď sem, pojď, pojď, pojď

A vysaj moji vůli k životu
Nasadila jsi mi korunu a zabila mě...
Na hlavní cestě není čeho litovat
Nikdy neopustím vedlejší cestu a pojedu po ní dál

Oh, zase v té samé noční můře
Oh, temný tunel lásky nikdy nekončí
Oh, zase jsem považovaný za jasnou oběť
Oh, příliš slabý říct, že je úplně po všem

[SOLO]

Ach můj život není v mých rukách
Vždycky jsem dával věčné lásce novou šanci
Říkej slova, která chci slyšet...pořád dokola
Spotřebovávám lásku, můj jediný smysl

Vždycky se zdál, že skončíme tady a zlomíme kopí
Připraveni dát nekonečné lásce další šanci
Říkáš slova která chci slyšet...pořád dokola
Chtíč je můj všepožírající smysl života
Tak si mě znova vem!





3. Ain't Your Fairytale
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

The ones who seek justice,
Will pray for it all their lives...
They can and they will skin us all one day...
Oh can you hear them cries? (Can you hear them cries?)
As far as the man can run from us we're following the trail of blood
So hunt my young ones

I have always known the storm would come...
Listen now, my young ones
This not a story I tell
Of midnight, moon and sun...

Are you ready to walk the forbidden road
Learn again what we tried to forget
The dark can now take over you

We have a common past, an ancient bond
The people once broke
We would only take what we need,
They would harvest our weak,

But they hunted us all,
We ended the last of them, thus far, ten lifetimes ago
In hopes of healing the sore,
But the war still went on

Preying for the moon,
Hiding for the day
These might be our last times
I ain't gonna see you taken away...

Heading for the dawn
Of our way of life
You're welcome to give it your best try...
Look me in the eyes, oh, wolver
This ain't your fairy tale...

It took us many years to teach them
How to cry wolf
We made the people serve the purpose
Those ignorant fools... my young ones!

Teach the ones below you something you've learned
And learn from the ones above you
Fear is your deepest wisdom
For these last days...

Preying for the moon,
Hiding for the day
These might be our last times
I ain't gonna see you taken away...

Heading for the dawn
Of our way of life
You're welcome to give it your best try...
Look me in the eyes, oh, wolver
This ain't your fairy tale...

The ones who seek justice,
Will pray for it all their lives...
They can and they will skin us all one day...
Oh can you hear them cries? (Can you hear them cries?)
As far as the man can run from us we're following the trail of blood
So hunt my young ones,
The pack they have always feared is back

[SOLO]

On your last day, remember, we never die
Death does not exist for us

They don't fear the wolf, but the wild within
No glory to the way this must end
This is a story I told
Unfolding before you

Preying for the moon,
Hiding for the day
These might be our last times
I ain't gonna see you taken away...

Heading for the dawn
Of our way of life
You're welcome to give it your best try...
Look me in the eyes, oh, wolver
This ain't your fairy tale...

The ones who seek justice,
Will pray for it all their lives...
They can and they will skin us all one day...
Oh can you hear them cries? (Can you hear them cries?)
As far as the man can run from us we're following the trail of blood
So hunt my young ones,
The pack they have always feared is back
3. Tohle není tvoje pohádka
(Překlad: Iris)

Ti kdož hledají spravedlnost
Se budou modlit za všechny jejich životy
Oni můžou a všechny nás jednoho dne stáhnou z kůže
Ach, slyšíš jejich nářek?(Slyšíš jejich nářek?)
Jak daleko od nás může člověk utéct, tak daleko budeme sledovat stopu krve
Tak lovte moji mladí!

Vždycky jsem věděl, že bouře přijde
Teď poslouchejte, vy mladí
Toto není příběh, který vyprávím
o půlnoci, Měsíci a Slunci...

Jste připraveni jít zakázanou cestou
Znovu se naučit to, co jsme se snažili zapomenout
Může vás teď pohltit temnota

Máme společnou minulost, dávné pouto
Které lidé kdysi zpřetrhali
Brali bychom si jenom tolik, kolik by jsme potřebovali
Pochytali by jen naše bezmocné

Ale oni nás lovili všechny
Skoncovali jsme s posledním z nich, dodnes, už před deseti generacemi
V naději, že vyléčíme rány
Ale válka stále trvá...

Modlíme se k Měsíci
Ve dne se skrýváme
Tohle můžou být naše poslední chvíle
Neuvidím tě jak odcházíš

Směřujeme k úsvitu
Našeho způsobu života
Jsi vítán, abys ukázal to nejlepší, co v tobě je
Pohlédni mi do očí, lovče vlků,
Tohle není tvoje pohádka

Trvalo to věky naučit je
Jak vyje vlk
Přinutili jsme lidi sloužit účelu
Ty ignorantské blázny...mládeži!

Učte ty po vás, to co jste se sami naučili
A učte se od těch před vámi
Strach je vaší nejhlubší moudrostí
V těchto posledních dnech...

Modlíme se k Měsíci
Ve dne se skrýváme
Tohle můžou být naše poslední chvíle
Neuvidím tě jak odcházíš

Směřujeme k úsvitu
Našeho způsobu života
Jsi vítán, abys ukázal to nejlepší, co v tobě je
Pohlédni mi do očí, lovče vlků,
Tohle není tvoje pohádka

Ti kdož hledají spravedlnost
Se budou modlit za všechny jejich životy
Oni můžou a všechny nás jednoho dne stáhnou z kůže
Ach, slyšíš jejich nářek?(Slyšíš jejich nářek?)
Jak daleko od nás může člověk utéct, tak daleko budeme sledovat stopu krve
Tak lovte moji mladí!
Smečka, které se vždycky obávali je zpátky!

[SOLO]

Ve svém posledním dni vzpomeň, že my nikdy nezemřeme
Smrt pro nás neexistuje

Nebojí se vlka, ale té divokosti v něm
Neslavnou cestou, tohle musí skončit
To je příběh, který jsem vám řekl
A rozprostřel před vás

Modlíme se k Měsíci
Ve dne se skrýváme
Tohle můžou být naše poslední chvíle
Neuvidím tě jak odcházíš

Směřujeme k úsvitu
Našeho způsobu života
Jsi vítán, abys ukázal to nejlepší, co v tobě je
Pohlédni mi do očí, lovče vlků,
Tohle není tvoje pohádka

Ti kdož hledají spravedlnost
Se budou modlit za všechny jejich životy
Oni můžou a všechny nás jednoho dne stáhnou z kůže
Ach, slyšíš jejich nářek?(Slyšíš jejich nářek?)
Jak daleko od nás může člověk utéct, tak daleko budeme sledovat stopu krve
Tak lovte moji mladí!
Smečka, které se vždycky obávali je zpátky!





4. Reckoning Day, Reckoning Night
(Music by Tony Kakko)
(INSTRUMENTAL)




5. Don't Say A Word
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

I am your poison candygram,
The love that's ment to fade away
Vade retro, alter ego, move aside, I'm choking on this life
I think I tolerate your hate, as long as you're afraid
All I wanted was to be with you and suffer every day...

Under the moon I hold a wake for a promise torn
Mortally wounded, feelings sheltered me
Once again my shadow will enter your life
Time to walk with me the last mile...

I read a book about a man, a love, a woman, how they died
How I was waved aside, listen how the headless doves cry
I truly see a madman in the mirror when I'm weak
I spent a year in love before I realized it's me

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you're lying
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Could I let you wait out the night?

Mother always said "My son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

It won't be long now, love, like mist I slowly fill the room
I place a black candle on your chest,
The path of night is manifest
I never wanted us to end up in this catatonic phase
It wasn't me who ran away, you made me stray...

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you're lying
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Settling the score, we pass the twilight...

Mother always said "My son,
Do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live,
But what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

Strawberry blonde, your stranglehold
On my heart is bound to end
I suppose, life sometimes,
It doesn't go the way it was meant
Though you never were a believer,
I assure you: I won't die before you
You read the book now,
The part "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust"

Short is the fight of this little starling
Love sounds familiar, but the emotion escapes me
I will carpe the diem while it's still here,
And see how the fear of death becomes her

We had it all so sweet
Made for me, you, indeed...
Big secret, small the lie
Don't cry for me, oh, argentite

No word you say tonight
Can make this be alright
I'll help you follow through
Remember this?: Pacta sunt servanda

... The wounds are too deep,
I need to keep the scars
To prove there was a time
When I loved something more than life

Unlike the last time here,
I now have the means and a will sincere
Your knight is nowhere near
Unfortunate for you, this makes me your God...

[SOLO]

Closing your eyes, don't ever say you love me, whore
You never meant a word, I know you lied
When there is life, there is despair, indulge me now
And stay alive this night... I promise you the end before the first light arrives...
5. Ani slovo
(Překlad: Iris)

Jsem tvoje jedovatá bonboniéra s věnováním
Láska, která je určena k zániku
Ustup pryč, druhé já, odstup pryč, jsem vklíněn v tomto životě
Myslím, že snáším tvoji nenávist, tak dlouho dokud se bojíš
Jediné co jsem chtěl bylo být s tebou a trpět každý den

Pod Měsícem jsem bděl, abych porušil slib
Smrtelně raněný, city mě chránily
Ještě jednou můj stín vstoupí do tvého života
Je čas abys se mnou ušla poslední míli

Četl jsem knihu o muži, lásce, ženě, jak zemřeli
Jak jsem byl ponechán bez zájmu, poslouchej jak bezhlavé holubice naříkají
Opravdu vidím šílence, když se bezmocný podívám do zrcadla
Byl jsem rok zamilovaný, než jsem zjistil, že jsem to já!

Otevři své modré oči a řekni že mě miluješ děvko
Ať tomu uvěřím, ale já vím, že lžeš
Poruš přísahu, kterou jsi myslím učinila, můj anděli, proč...
Mohl bych tě nechat čekat celou noc?

Matka vždycky říkala: Můj synu, dělej jenom ušlechtilé věci
Musíš vždycky dokončit, to co jsi začal-nezáleží co,
Tak seď, dívej se a uč se...
Není to v tom jak dlouho žiješ,ale co říkají tvé mravy
Nemůžeš si nechat nic pro sebe
Tak už ani slovo...ani slovo!

Teď už to nebude dlouhé, lásko, jako mlha jsem pomalu zaplnil místnost
Umístil jsem černou svíci na tvou hruď
Stezka noci je manifest
Nikdy jsem nechtěl, abychom skončili v takové strnulé fázi.
Nebyl jsem to já, kdo utekl, nechala jsi mě zbloudit

Otevři své modré oči a řekni že mě miluješ děvko
Ať tomu uvěřím, ale já vím, že lžeš
Poruš přísahu, kterou jsi myslím učinila, můj anděli, proč...
Vyrovnali jsme skóre během soumraku

Matka vždycky říkala: Můj synu,
dělej jenom ušlechtilé věci
Musíš vždycky dokončit, to co jsi začal-nezáleží co,
Tak seď, dívej se a uč se...
Není to v tom jak dlouho žiješ,
ale co říkají tvé mravy
Nemůžeš si nechat nic pro sebe
Tak už ani slovo...ani slovo!

Jahodová blondýnko, tvoje plná kontrola nad mým srdcem
Je začátek konce
Předpokládám, že život
nikdy není takový, jaký by měl
Přestože jsi nikdy nebyla věřící,
ujišťuji tě, že nezemřu dřív než ty!
Právě čteš knihu,
kapitolu: popel popelu, prach prachu

Krátký je boj tohoto malého špačka
Láska zní povědomě, ale city ze mě vyprchaly
Carpe diem (užiju si dne), dokud to jde
A uvidím jak strach ze smrti zachvacuje ji!

Bylo to všechno tak sladké
Jenom pro tebe a pro mě, skutečně
Velké tajemství, malá lež
Neplakej pro mě, můj argentite (chem.zn.: Ag2S)

Tuhle noc neřekneš ani slovo
Může to mnohé zlepšit
Pomůžu ti projít skrz
Pamatuješ? Smlouvy je třeba održovat

Zranění jsou tak hluboká
Musím si ponechat jizvy
Abych měl důkaz, že byla doba
Kdy jsem miloval něco víc než vlastní život

Narozdíl od minule
Mám teď prostředky a budu upřímný
Tvůj rytíř není nikde poblíž
Naneštěstí pro tebe, činí to ze mně tvého Boha...

[SOLO]

Zavíráš oči, nikdy už neříkej, že mě miluješ, děvko
Nikdy jsi nemyslela vážně ani slovo, vím, že jsi lhala
Pokud je někde život, je tam i beznaděj, tak si mě teď rozmazluj!
A zůstaň pro tuhle noc na živu... slibuji ti smrt před prvními paprsky...





6. The Boy Who Wanted To Be A Real Puppet
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

So many years ago, many more than I'd
Even care to bear in my mind
From the darkest of all places I found you

All the limbs in their right places
And a heart made of real gold
Sell me your little doll, oh sir, I ask you kind

Every night I returned to watch them
The master and the puppet in the show
He said: "Oh, no, I cannot sell him...
Priceless he is, masterpiece of mine"

Please, sell me your puppet, sir
Name your price, oh please,
Whatever you may ask,
Tenfold the price I pay

"Did I not make it clear?
This debate is over
I will never part from this puppet, my son..."

With hungry eyes I followed them all night
The blind master and the puppet he had made
"No, sir, to sell is not my will!"
The doll is mine, even if I have to kill...

So it shall be... if this is what it takes
"Greed is truly blinder than me..."
"Heart of gold is what you wish for?"
"So, this little boy... wants to be... a puppet, for real..."

So I have the golden heart
Now only needing the voice of the master
Never feel hunger, never grow older
My dream was to be a star in a real puppet show

[SOLO]

It's so hard to remember my life
The times before the show
Can I ever cut off the strings?
"Take a bow, now dance and sing..." (Sing!)

Would you turn to a child again?
"No, never, I am your Guide"
You can see a small grin on the face
Of the master, when the puppet's in his place

Be careful what you wish for
Wishes might come alive
The twines are pulling me every day and night...
The show, the glitter and all the fame
I'd give away for a life
Some things can end with a word, they say
This only ends with a sharp knife (Knife!)
6. Chlapec, který chtěl být opravdovou loutkou
(Překlad: Iris)

Před mnoha lety, mnohem více než bych sám
Dokázal unést ve své paměti
Na nejčernějším ze všech míst jsem tě našel

Všechny končetiny na svém místě a
Srdce vyrobené z ryzího zlata
"Prodejte mi vaši panenku, pane, pěkně vás prosím!"

Každý večer jsem je pak chodil pozorovat
Pána a loutky na představení
Říkal: "Ach, né, nemůžu ho prodat...
Je neocenitelný, můj mistrovský kus!"

"Prosím prodejte mi vaši loutku pane,
řekněte si cenu, ach prosím
můžete si říct cokoliv
zaplatím desetinásobek!"

"Neřekl jsem to jasně?
Tato debata je u konce!
Nikdy se nevzdám této loutky-mého syna..."

Hladovým pohledem jsem je sledoval celý večer,
Slepého pána a loutku, kterou vyrobil.
"Ne, pane, ten prodej není moje vůle..."
Ta panenka bude moje i kdybych měl zabít

Tak to mělo být, pokud je to věc, která se musela stát...
"Nenasytnost je opravdu slepější než já!
Srdce ze zlata je to po čem toužíš?
Tak tenhle chlapeček, chce být doopravdy loutkou..."

Teď mám zlaté srdce
A potřebuju už jen hlas svého pána
Nikdy necítím hlad, nikdy nezestárnu
Mým snem bylo být hvězdou v opravdovém loutkovém představení.

[SOLO]

Je tak těžké vzpomenout si na svůj život
Na dobu před představeními
"Můžu někdy zpřetrhat provázky?"
"Ukloň se, teď tanči a zpívej (Zpívej!)"

"Udělal byste ze mě zase dítě?"
"Ne, nikdy, já jsem tvůj vůdce."
Můžete si všimnout malého úšklebku na tváři pána,
Když jsou loutky na scéně

Buď opatrný na to co si přeješ,
Přání mohou ožít!
Provázky mě tahají každý den a každou noc...
Představení, pozlátko a všechnu slávu
Bych vyměnil zpátky za život
Některé věci končí vyřčeným slovem
Tohle končí jen ostrým nožem (Nožem!)





7. My Selene
(Music and lyrics by Jani Liimatainen)

Nocturnal poetry:
Dressed in the whitest silver you'd smile at me
Every night I wait for my sweet Selene

But still...

Solitude's upon my skin
A Life that's bound by the chains of reality
Would you let me be your Endymion?

I would
Bathe in your moonlight and slumber in peace
Enchanted by your kiss in forever sleep

But until we unite
I live for that night
Wait for time
Two souls entwine

In the break of new dawn
My hope is forlorn
Shadows they will fade
But I'm always in the shade
Without you...

Serene and silent sky
Rays of moon are dancing with the tide
A perfect sight, a world devine

And I...

The loneliest child alive
Always waiting, searching for my rhyme
I'm still alone in the dead of night

Silent I lie with a smile on my face
Appearance deceives and the silence betrays

As I wait for the time
My dream comes alive
Always out of sight
But never out of mind

And under waning moon
Still I long for you
Alone against the light
Solitude am I

In the end I'm enslaved by my dream
In the end there's no soul who'd bleed for me

Hidden from daylight I'm sealed in my cave
Trapped in a dream that is slowly turning to nightmare,
Where I'm all alone
Venial is life when you're but a dream,
The book is still open the pages as empty as me

[SOLO]

I cling to a hope that's beginning to fade
Trying to break the desolation I hate

But until we unite
I live for that night
Wait for time
Two souls entwine

In the break of new dawn
My hope is forlorn
We will never meet
Only Misery and me

This is my final call
My evenfall
Drowning into time
I become the night

By the light of new day
I'll fade away
Reality cuts deep
Would you bleed with me
My Selene?
7. Má Selena
(Překlad: Iris)

Poezie noci:
Oděna v nejbělejším stříbře by ses na mě usmála
Každou noc čekám na svou líbeznou Selenu

Ale pořád...

Mám samotu pod kůží
Život, který je svázaný řetězem skutečnosti
Směl bych být tvůj Endymion?

Rád bych...
Se koupal v tvém měsíčním světle a usínal v poklidu
okouzlen tvým polibkem ve věčném spánku

Ale než se spojíme
Žiju pro onu noc
Čekám na dobu
Kdy se dvě duše propletou

Za rozbřesku nového jitra
Je moje naděje marná
Stíny se vytratí
Já však zůstávám dál ve stínu
Bez tebe...

Klidná hladina a tichá obloha
Měsíční paprsky tančí v proudu vod
Skvělý výhled, božský svět...

A já...

Nejosamělejší žijící dítě
Pořád čekám, hledám svůj rým
Jsem stále samotný v noční smrti

Tichounce lžu s úsměvem na tváři
Vzhled klame a ticho zrazuje

Jak tak čekám na dobu
Kdy mé sny ožijí
Jsem pořád mimo dohled
Ale nikdy ne pryč z paměti

Pod couvajícím měsícem
Čekám pořád na tebe
Sám proti světlu
Samota jsem Já!

Nakonec jsem zotročený snem
Nakonec není duše, která by pro mě truchlila

Ukryt před denním světlem, zapečetěn ve své jeskyni
Polapen snem, který se mění v noční můru
V níž jsem úplně sám
Život je malinký, když jsi jenom snem
Kniha je pořád otevřená a stránky má tak prázdné jako jsem prázdný já

[SOLO]

Držím se naděje, která zvolna mizí
Zkouším prolomit pustotu, kterou nenávidím

Ale než se spojíme
Žiju pro onu noc
Čekám na dobu
Kdy se dvě duše propletou

Za rozbřesku nového jitra
Je moje naděje marná
Nikdy se s tebou už nesetkám
Jen já a Utrpení

Tohle je moje konečné zvolání
Můj soumrak
Utonulý v čase
Se stávám nocí

Za rozbřesku nového dne
Zmizím pryč
Skutečnost se zařezává hluboko
Budeš truchlit se mnou
Má Seleno?





8. Wildfire
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

[SPOKEN:]
Oh why are we so sad?
Are we feeling hurt by their evil eyes and all those empty words?
We are thirsty for payback?
What would we like to do with the town?
Wouldn't we like to make it dance (Ha ha ha ha) with the animal?
Would we? Would we?
Tell us, what we would like to do.
Burn it. Burn it all...

Burn honey, burn, let the fire eat away
I never liked the look of this town
Burn it down now
I'll run, they all know what I've done
I fetch my gear and take my leave from this mountain

I never had a chance to prove I wasn't guilty,
I always seemed to get blamed for
Every little crime, I didn't even have a name for...

Still running, still defeated in my mind
I never even tried to defend my own pride
The father ain't always like the son
They claim we've purloined, I'm not the one...

The story always goes, when the anger within
Builds up for too long...
Takes us over...
And we all are forced to obey, hey...

It was a match made in Hell,
Now the whole mountain burns
And every man gets what no man deserves

Our beloved kin never learned to fit in
Now I pay for my name, live my life in sin
How much less can I ask from you people?
This town stays in disarray
'Til the rules are the same for us all, hey...

[SOLO]

I've ran on this mountain, with no guilt of my own
The trees and the rocks, every cave, every hole
I dropped them a line, "Beware, this mountain will
blow in your face. My last saving grace..."

Bells toll all over town, burn, burn until it's all gone
Game over, what was a bad joke is now a reality show...

We all are forced to obey... we all are forced to obey...

I climbed up the mountain,
And dug a grave for each day of pain,
It's in the past, this moment's so frail...
I am what you made me
With years of abuse, so burn!!!! (Burn)

This is a match made in Hell,
Now the whole mountain burns
And every man gets what no man deserves

Our beloved kin never learned to fit in
Now I pay for my name, live my life in sin
How much less can I ask from you people?
This town stays in disarray
'Til the rules are the same for us all

Our beloved kin never learned to fit in
Now I pay for my name, live my life in sin
How much less can I ask from you people?
I hereby declare a martial law
And you all, we all are forced to obey... hey!
8. Divoký požár
(Překlad: Iris)


Ale proč jsme tak smutní?
Cítíme se zraněni onou zlostí v jejich očích a všemi těmi prázdnými slovy? Žízníme po odplatě?
Co bychom rádi udělali s tím městem?
Chtěli bychom ho roztančit (ha ha ha ha) se zvířetem?
Ano? Ano?
Povězte, co bychom rádi udělali?
Spálit! Celé ho spálit!

Hoř miláčku hoř, ať tě oheň rozežere,
Nikdy jsem neměl rád pohled na toto město
Zrovna ho spal!
Uteču, všichni ví, co jsem udělal
Popadnu svoji výstroj a zdrhnu z této hory

Nikdy mi nedali šanci dokázat, že jsem nevinný
Vždycky se zdálo, že budu obviněn z každého
Malého zločinu, pro který ani není jméno...

Pořád běžím, pořád sám v sobě poražený
Nikdy jsem dokonce ani nezkusil bránit svoji vlastní hrdost
Otec není vždycky stejný jako syn
Tvrdí, že jsme se odcizili, ale já to nejsem...

Příběh vždycky pokračuje, když vztek uvnitř
narůstá příliš dlouho
Až nás pohltí
A všichni jsme nuceni být poslušní, hey...

Je to souboj stvořený v pekle
Teď celá hora hoří
A každý člověk dostane to, co si žádný člověk nezaslouží

Naše milované příbuzenstvo se nikdy nepřizpůsobí
Teď platím za své jméno, žiju život v hříchu
O kolik míň mohu žádat od vás lidé?
Toto město ovládne zmatek
Dokud nebudou pravidla stejná pro nás pro všechny, hey

[SOLO]

Seběhl jsem dolů z hory, bez viny
Stromy a skály, každá jeskyně, každá díra...
Nechal jsem jim vzkaz: "Dejte si pozor, hora vám bude
vmetena do tváře! Moje poslední kladná stránka."

Zvony zní celým městem, hoří, hoří než je všechno pohlceno
Konec hry, to co byl jenom špatný vtip je teď reality show

Všichni jsme nuceni být poslušní... všichni jsme nuceni být poslušní

Vylezl jsem na horu a
Vykopal hrob za každý den bolesti
Už je to minulostí, tento okamžik je tak křehký...
Jsem to co jste ze mě udělali
Za celé roky zneužívání, tak hořte!

Je to souboj stvořený v pekle
Teď celá hora hoří
A každý člověk dostane to, co si žádný člověk nezaslouží

Naše milované příbuzenstvo se nikdy nepřizpůsobí
Teď platím za své jméno, žiju život v hříchu
O kolik míň mohu žádat od vás lidé?
Toto město ovládne zmatek
Dokud nebudou pravidla stejná pro nás pro všechny, hey

Naše milované příbuzenstvo se nikdy nepřizpůsobí
Teď platím za své jméno, žiju život v hříchu
O kolik míň mohu žádat od vás lidé?
Tímto vyhlašuji stanné právo
A vy všichni, všichni jsme nuceni být poslušní...hey!





9. White Pearl, Black Oceans
(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

I was born and raised by the sea, shy yet proud,
Learned to stay away from the crowd
In my home, my lighthouse...
101 steps down, round and round
New Years Eve, one night in the town
Can change one life into eternity...

All I could see, her eyes,
We got caught in the moment, all of the night
Taken beyond all lines,
In silence leaving 'em all behind

She had found the sails, for the following night
The town, for her, was getting way too small
She promised to be mine
Forever, ...for that one night...

Moments, passion, small defeats
Concealed emotions, found in me
"You gave life to a brand new me..."

Crossing the wintry fields,
The first hour of morning light
Warmed by the flame inside,
The lasting memory of the ending night

I never had a chance to stop what hit me...
What broke my bones and mauled me...
After hours of deep, unwilling sleep... in a cold shelter
Fell back in the dark, and the hours of the day passed...

A nightmare awakes me, blinking light!
There's no guide, blind ships in the night
Oh blood red moon, eat away the night

Darkness covers my lonely soul,
No one to feed the dying light...

Good morn', oh dreadful day,
I prayed the moon had lit the sea instead of me...
For the sails of night,
"Please tell me everything's alright..."

My voice in the room broke the silence,
Everybody killed me with their eyes...
What I was to hear made the people cry,
Impossible for me to keep the tears inside

"All on the board White Pearl I have died,
Coastal reef have tolled their lives
And you are the light of the night..."

One thing, I remember, before I fell on the ground...
Although I never saw the face,
A name was inked in his arm...

Love can be like poetry of demons, or maybe
God loves complex irony?
The family name stated I had seen before...
Written on her front door...

"Silence in the courthouse!"
A presence in the room, we both could feel
The father of her unborn child and me

All on the board White Pearl I have died,
Coastal reef have tolled their lives
While I was the guide light...
Back in my tower, run, run, run
Light is out, I hope to see
Black oceans beneath rise and swallow me

One step will take me back inside, another sees my end
No one can love a man who guarded the light
That died one faithful night, so many lives...
Flaming eyes I must confront before I'm truly stated free

Defining innocence is hell, after all that has past...
Building new walls inside my eternal night...
Although they took my heart and dried me up
Sometimes I still bleed...

Show me the way
The light will show me a way on the grisly reefs
Too many dead ends I see
No soul can save me
The respect I lost, the measure of a man...

10000 steps down, round and round
One night at the town and I'm hell bound
Black oceans beneath come and swallow me
All on the board White Pearl had died,
Coastal reef come toll my life
Black oceans beneath come and swallow me

My little tower, seal my fate
Help me pay back, end their hate
Black oceans beneath come and swallow me
One direction, down, down, down
Pitch black night for my old town
Black oceans beneath shall now swallow me

[SPOKEN:]
I hereby, the midnight one
To be turned to the corruption
Looking for a resurrection of her body
When the sea shall give up again
And the life of the road to come through our Lord
Amen
9. Bílá perla, černý oceán
(Překlad: Iris)

Narodil jsem se a vyrostl u moře, nesmělý a dosud hrdý
Naučil jsem se žít mimo davy lidí
Ve svém domově, ve svém majáku
101 kroků dolů, pořád dokola
Nový Rok-jediná noc ve městě
Dokáže změnit život napořád...

Jediné co jsem vnímal byly její oči
Byli jsme v té chvíli polapeni na celou noc
Přeneseni přes všechny hranice
Jsme v tichosti opustili ostatní

Našla si loď na následující noc
Město se pro ni stávalo příliš malé
Slíbila, že bude mojí
Navždy...té jedné noci

Moments, passion, small defeats
Concealed emotions, found in me
"You gave life to a brand new me..."

Procházeli jsme se větrnými poli
V prvních hodinách svítání
Zahříváni vnitřním plamenem
Přetrvávající vzpomínkou na končící noc

Nikdy jsem neměl příležitost zabránit tomu, co mě zasáhlo
Co mi přelámalo kosti a roztrhalo mě...
Po hodinách nedobrovolného spánku ve studeném přístřešku
Jsem padl zpátky do tmy a hodiny dne minuly

Probudila mě noční můra, blikající světlo
Není žádného vodícího světla pro slepé lodě v noci
Krvavě rudý Měsíci, pohlť onu noc

Temnota zakrývá moji osamělou duši
Nikdo kdo by rozžal uhasínající světlo

Dobré ráno děsivý dne!
Modlím se k Měsíci, kéž by ozářil moře místo mě
Pro noční plavby
"Prosím, řekni mi že je všechno v pořádku!"

Můj hlas prolomil ticho v místnosti
Všichni mě probodli pohledem
Co jsem měl uslyšet většinou lidi rozpláče
A pro mě bylo nemožné zadržet slzy

"Všichni na palubě Bílé Perly zahynuli
Pobřežní útes si vzal jejich životy
A ty jsi světlem ve tmě..."

Jednu věc si pamatuju, než jsem padl na podlahu
Přestože jsem nikdy tu tvář neviděl,
Měl jméno vytetováno na paži

Láska umí být jak poezie démonů
Nebo možná Bůh miluje ve všem ironii
Jisté rodinné jméno, které jsem už dříve viděl
Napsáno na jejích vstupních dveřích

"Ticho v soudní síni"
Přítomnost v místnosti jsme pociťovali oba
Otec nenarozeného dítěte a já

"Všichni na palubě Bílé Perly zahynuli
Pobřežní útes si vzal jejich životy
Zatímco já byl světlem ve tmě..."
Zpátky ve věži, běžím, běžím, běžím
Světlo pohaslo, doufám, že uvidím
Černý oceán pode mnou se vzedme a pohltí mě

Jeden krok mě vrátí zpátky, druhý spatří můj konec
Nikdo nemůže milovat muže, který stráží světlo
Který zmařil jedné noci tolik životů
Musím čelit planoucím pohledům, než jsem uznán nevinným

Popsat nevinu je peklo po tom všem co se stalo
Postavil jsem nové zdi v nitru své černé noci
Přestože vzali mé srdce a očistili mě
Někdy stále trpím...

Ukaž mi cestu!
Světlo mi ukáže cestu ke strašlivým útesům
Tolik slepých konců co jsem spatřil
Žádná duše už mě nemůže zachránit
Ztratil jsem respekt, úroveň člověka....

10 000 kroků dolů, pořád dokola
Jedna noc ve městě a jsem na hranici pekel
Černý oceán pode mnou přijde a pohltí mě
Všichni na palubě Bílé Perly zahynuli
Pobřežní útes si vezme můj život
Černý oceán pode mnou přijde a pohltí mě

Moje věžička zpečetila můj osud
Pomoz mi s odplatou, ukonči jejich nenávist
Černý oceán pode mnou přijde a pohltí mě
Jeden směr dolů, dolů, dolů
Uvrhni černou noc na mé staré město
Černý oceán pode mnou přijde a pohltí mě



Tímto nechť půlnoc dojde k rozkladu
Hledajíc opětovné vzkříšení své podstaty
Když se moře znovu vzdá
A životní cesta bude vést skrze našeho Pána
Amen

(Music and lyrics by Tony Kakko)

In good old times, remember my friend
Moon was so bright and so close to us, sometimes

We were still blind and deaf, what a bliss?
Painting the world of our own, for our own eyes, now?

"Can we ever have what we had then?
Friendship unbreakable
Love means nothing to me
Without blinking an eye
I'd fade, if so needed,
All those moments with you
If I had you beside me"

One cloudy day we both lost the game?
We drifted so far and away

Nothing is quite as cruel as a child
Sometimes we break the unbreakable, sometimes?

"And we'll never have what we had then
Friendship unbroken
Love means nothing to me
Without blinking an eye
I'd fade, if so needed,
All those moments with you
If I had you beside me now"

I was unable to cope with what you said
Sometimes we need to be cruel to be kind
Child that I was, could not see the reason
Feelings I had were but sham and a lie?

I have never forgotten your smile
Your eyes, oh, Shamandalie

Time went by, many memories died
I'm writing this down to ease my pain

You saw us always clearer than me
How we were never meant to be
Love denied meant the friendship would die
Now I have seen the light
These memories make me cry

"Can I ever have what I had then?
Friendship unbroken
Love means nothing to me
Without blinking an eye
I'd fade, if so needed,
All those moments with you
And see the world with my wide open eyes

Friendship got broken
There's no other for me
Like the one of my childhood days
Can you forgive me?
The love got better off me,
On that one day back in old times"

(Překlad: Iris)

Za starých dobrých časů, vzpomeň si kamarádko
Měsíc byl tak jasný a někdy tak blízko nás

Bývali jsme slepí a hluší, to bylo blaho
Malovali jsme náš svět jenom pro naše oči, a teď?

"Můžeme ještě někdy mít, to co kdysi
Nezničitelné přátelství
Láska pro mě nic neznamená
Bez jiskření v očích
Byl bych ztracený
Nebýt těch tolik potřebných okamžiků s tebou
Kdybys tu byla vedle mě"

Jednoho podmračeného dne jsme oba zapomněli tu hru
Dostali jsme se od sebe pryč a daleko

Nic není krutější než dítě
Někdy jsme zničili nezničitelné, někdy...

"A už nikdy nebudeme mít, to co kdysi
Nezničené přátelství
Láska pro mě nic neznamená
Bez jiskření v očích
Byl bych ztracený
Nebýt těch tolik potřebných okamžiků s tebou
Kdybys tu byla vedle mě, teď"

Nebyl jsem schopný vyrovnat se s tím co jsi řekla
Někdy musíme být krutí, abychom mohli být milí
Dítě jako já nepostřehlo ten důvod
To co jsem cítil byla jenom faleš a lži?

Nikdy jsem nezapomněl na tvůj úsměv
A oči, ach Shamandalie...

Čas běžel, mnoho vzpomínek zaniklo
Píšu to, abych si ulevil od bolesti

Viděla jsi nás vždycky čistěji než já
Tak jak to nikdy nemělo být
Odmítnutá láska znamená konec přátelství
Teď vidím to světlo
Tyhle vzpomínky mě nutí k pláči

"Můžu ještě někdy mít, to co kdysi
Nezničené přátelství
Láska pro mě nic neznamená
Bez jiskření v očích
Byl bych ztracený
Nebýt těch tolik potřebných okamžiků s tebou
Kdybys tu byla vedle mě...

Přátelství zaniklo
Už pro mě žádné není
Jako dny mého dětství
Můžeš mi to prominout?
Láska mě raději opustila
onoho dne za starých časů"
