Track Name: Prisoner
I once got told
only the strong would survive
so am I a chosen one
or do I need to fear losing track of my life?

wandering lonely through the days
faceless people passing by
will I ever find meaning on my way
or am I born to die?

so I turn my back
to the desert of sentiments
where water is rare
and warmth's a curse

nowhere to go, no one to trust
am I meant to live like this?

so I stand
at the edge of the abyss
looking down on hell

face to face with the flames I gotta decide
should I seep away or should I vaporize?
I will never be me, I will never be free

scorching air burns my lungs
leave my burdens burn and rise
So I can finally breathe

lost and left behind
without a sign
deaf and blind
betrayed by mankind

help for the wealthy, love for the heartless
that's our pledge to the world!

face to face with the flames I gotta decide
should I seep away or should I vaporize?
I will never be me, I try to be free
Track Name: Blizzard
I've been walking for days with no sign of light
inches of snow shroud the marks I leave behind
stains of emptiness infect the deepest plains inside of me
the closer I'm to death, the more I feel alive

glistening cold burns my face
looking for the roads I tried to trace
nothing ahead, nothing behind
surrounded by an all devouring white

all the warmth that fulfilled me
when you wrapped your arms around me
You lit a bonfire in my heart
and now we're freezing thousand miles apart
left behind in the coldest place
yet I don't know what made me fall from grace
if you come back I'll be waiting here
only the frost is what I have to fear

I've been walking for days with no sign of light
inches of snow shroud the marks I leave behind
my time is melting away with every step I take
no shelter for a lonely man

I am not hopeless, but I am faithless
a prisoner of father frost, meant to be lost
forever

the weeks are dripping away
still I am craving for yesterday
nowhere I can go, nowhere I can stay
though nothing of what I'm afraid

death climbs up my frozen cheeks
I lose the feeling of my fingertips
frostbites have studded me for weeks
cold burn from my chapped lips

the blood pouring in my veins
congealing like frozen winter lanes

here comes the storm!
merge with the infinite white
swallowed by the snow I barely keep my mind
here comes the storm!
left only in the freezing cold
I'm only longing for your hand to hold
here comes the storm!
Track Name: Weightless
so many times we've been down this road
walked the same paths but still strayed all alone
grief in our existence, sorrow born along our way
reflecting from the mirrors that we built around ourselves

too many times we just turned our backs
and left the good undone
denied by virtues valued wrong
now we're standing in a rain of shards
grey shades turn gay around our cage
perception changed, new shores ahead

even when the sunlight fades
we shine on

standing on the peak of countless broken fragments
the mountain path is marked by a red trail
we reached the highest highs
and payed the price
weightless float besides the clouds

what once will rise up one day will fall down
you can't escape this, there is no way out

free fall to earth
the past is pulling down
no control for this collapse
no wings to catch me now
free fall
to earth!

even the smallest puddle mirrors the sky
we can fly, so spread your wings and fly

have we lost the fight?
colors turn to black and white
have we lost the fight?
my walls are caving in again
colors turn to black and white
Track Name: Salvation
welcome to the world of hypocrisy
where false prophets preach the end of days
born in endless misery
to consume and adapt in a sway

empty words define our lives
swallow them and lose your mind

we are nothing but a gear in the machine
there's nothing else we have ever been
so if I break out of the place I'm meant to be
is there future or the end waiting for me?

What am I supposed to do when I have
Nothing to lose
Nothing to love
Nothing to fight for

live through all the fright
and still no hope in sight
forlorn days that I can't outrun
never seen the light of the sun

welcome to the world of hypocrisy
where false prophets preach the end of days
born in endless misery
to consume and adapt in a sway

a journey like an Odyssey
and still no place where i can be free

like lonely hunters of the night
emptiness flows within my stride
scent of despair hangs in the cold
tracing footprints of solitude

show me the light
show me eternity
show me the way out
show me divinity
