Track Name: Depths Of The Night
You lie awake wondering
How things might have been
If the life that you're living
Was the one you had dreamed

And you think of the promises
All broken inside
Everything they had told you
Was nothing but lies

You can't go to sleep
With these thoughts on your mind
You soon drift into darkness
Confusion inside

While your friends remain silent
Seemingly unaware
Of the demons you're facing
Of your endless despair

I will take you to places
That you've never been
I will show you a world
That you've never seen

I will lift you back up
From the steps that you fell
I will take you to heaven
From the depths of your hell

And in dreams I will teach you
The mysteries of life
I will show you the stars
In the depths of the night

Just believe in me baby
I will meet you in flight
I will lead you from darkness
Back into the light

You feel lost in a world
Of frustration and lies
With no one to turn to
Giving up on your life

All the money you earn
Is not enough to forget
All your troubles inside
All your fears and regrets

Still you hope and you wonder
Is there life after death?
Endless questions all fighting
For peace in your head

And you lose what you were
For the things you presume
Yet your face is still of one
Whom the soul consumes

I will take you to places
That you've never been
I will show you a world
That you've never seen

I will lift you back up
From the steps that you fell
I will take you to heaven
From the depths of your hell

And in dreams I will teach you
The mysteries of life
I will show you the stars
In the depths of the night

Just believe in me baby
I will meet you in flight
I will lead you from darkness
Back into the light
Back into the light

From the depths of the night
We'll fly back into the light
From the depths of the night
We'll fly back into the light
From the depths of the night
We'll fly back into the light
From the depths of the night
We'll fly back into the light
Track Name: Love Phobia
You stand out like an alien
In your bright yellow raincoat
You hold the fear of lizard domination
In your hands

You are my strawberry love
You are my sad little cuckoo bird
And I'll believe in anything you tell me
Every single world

I know the owls still keep you company
Though people stop and stare
Where you go the children run from you
They're filled with dread and fear

They know that if they get too close to you
They'll catch your deadly curse
But I was never 'fraid of that
For losing you, that would be worse

You are a princess from the planet Epsilon
You're here on earth, earth
Until you pay for your mistakes
With your isolation curse,
Isolation curse,
Curse
And I can never get quite close enough
As soon as I get near
You run away, you vanish
Hide from me
You're gone, you disappear, pear, pear,
Disappear, pear, pear

Do you love?
Do you know?
Will you die?
Will you go?
Are you truth?
Are you lies?
Will you die?
Is this goodbye?
Is this goodbye?

You are a princess from the planet Epsilon
You're here on earth, earth
Until you pay for your mistakes
With your isolation curse,
Isolation curse,
Curse

So let us drink our raspberry wine
Let us forget why we are here, here, here
Let us pretend that we are lovers
In a world so far from here, here, here

Do you love?
Do you know?
Will you die?
Will you go?
Are you truth?
Are you lies?
Will you die?
Is this goodbye?

Love shall crown you
There will be thorns upon your head
Love crucifies you
And resurrects you when you're dead
You don't like flowers
When they're all covered in thorns
I'll cast them out for you
We'll live a fantasy reborn

We can rob a bank together
We could buy a Russian spaceship
We could fly back to your planet
We could run instead of face it

I would back through death valley
Filled with ghosts that watch you naked
If it meant that you'd be happy
In the dawn when you've awakened

I would tie you to a chair
So you could never run from here
I would super glue our arms together
So you'd always be near
I would never cross the line
For in you my love I trust
You have taught me all the difference
Between love and sexual lust

You are a princess from the planet Epsilon
You're here on earth, earth
Until you pay for your mistakes
With your isolation curse,
Isolation curse,
Curse
And I can never get quite close enough
As soon as I get near
You run away, you vanish
Hide from me
You're gone, you disappear, pear, pear,
Disappear, pear, pear

I fell in love with fantasy
My world is in your empty frame
I believed each word you said to me
I'd do it all again
I'll call your spaceship
Take you back
I'll build creations full of love
Light the mystery circle up
And cycle round
And look above
I will hope and I will pray
The spaceship might take you away
Might be separated
But we'll meet again in better days
I'll see you off, I'll say goodbye
You'll see the smile in my eyes
And a tear for all the lies
I won't look back
While you die

They won't believe me when I say
That you were taken far away
But I know it in my heart
I keep it close with love for you
Signs you send me I can see
And I will send them back to thee
In this love you will exist
Forever in my memory

You are a princess from the planet Epsilon
You're here on earth, earth
Until you pay for your mistakes
With your isolation curse,
Isolation curse,
Curse
And I can never get quite close enough
As soon as I get near
You run away, you vanish
Hide from me
You're gone, you disappear, pear, pear,
Disappear, pear, pear
Track Name: The Blackbird
Some times my closest friend
Is just a blackbird on the fence
He compassionately sings to me
When I am in distress
He's all in black
Dressed just like me
No confusion, no need to speak
He just sings his praise
Through all his days
That bird he knows the truth

He whispered secrets just to me
He taught me how to truly be
I now know how to change my shape
To be a bird and fly away

So when you see me sitting there
While you're lost in your despair
Just take one closer look at me
And I will set you free
I am the blackbird watching you
I sing to you, I comfort you
I'm there for you when you are lost
I'll let you be all the things I'm not

Don't let yourself grow up into
A world that never cared for you
Just trust my words, I'll take you back
To all the magic that you lack
You are the cat that's hunting me
I'll sacrifice my life for thee
In death we do find life again
The two of us repeat this game

I am the blackbird watching you.
Track Name: Voodoo Dance
Come with me
I'll lead the way
Into a dreamland far away
Follow me the time has come
For me to take your mind away

We will dance the voodoo dance
Until the demons take our minds
We will fly through new dimensions
In a trance transcending time

Would you trust me,
If I told you,
You are now a part of me
I have got your mind in mine
Don't worry 'bout a thing,
You're free

We will dance the voodoo dance
Until the demons take our minds
We will fly through new dimensions
In a trance transcending time

Would you trust me,
If I told you,
You are now a part of me
I have got your mind in mine
Don't worry 'bout a thing,
You're free

We will dance the voodoo dance
Until they take our minds
Until they take our minds

Come with me
I'll lead the way
Into a dreamland far away
Follow me the time has come
For me to take your mind away

Voodoo dance
Voodoo dance
Track Name: The Shadow Gallery
I'm a tortured soul
Trapped in the wrong body
I love God and the Devil
Both the same

I keep in the shadows
I walk in the darkness
To hide my face
To hide my pain

You're good and evil honey
It's written in your face
We were thrown out together
From heaven and hell

If we lost our forgetful memories
And we got back together
We'd put the earth of madness
Under our spell

Welcome to my shadow gallery
There's so much to see
I'll torture and imprison you with love
To set you free

You stand beneath the falling rain
You're free from all your pain
You've found your courage
You've escaped from suffering and shame

The woman you've become was born
In silent tears you cried
You found yourself in prison
When you were willing to die

Welcome to my shadow gallery
There's so much to see
I'll torture and imprison you with love
To set you free

The moods and feelings that you see
Like clouds that change incessantly
Are silently controlled beyond our reach

And crimes give birth to some good things
While good deeds might give birth to sin
We cannot see the ends of anything

"There's no mercy in the green machine"
"No mercy in the green machine"
"No mercy in the green machine"

Good and evil,
Love and hate
Is there a God or is it Fate?
Are our hearts reflections of our lives?
Why can anything be justified?
La, la, la, la, lie
La, la, la, la, lie
Track Name: Last Petal
All I could think of was me
And though I thought I was free
Nothing could make me see
Beauty beneath the beast

And then the tables were turned
An enchantress she cursed me
Taught me the things I should learn
To face the sorrow I'd earned

For years, hid myself away
Started to grow more afraid
People I used to relate
I now started to hate

And watching life from afar
With a magic mirror
Afraid to participate
I was doomed to my fate

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
That's when I'll remain a beast
Or love will take me far from here?

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
Will you save me?
Or leave me dying here?

Will you leave me dying here?
Don't leave me dying here

Who could ever learn to love a beast?
There's so much more to me than you see
I'd teach you secrets to set you free
But you won't know me 'till chapter III

I'll let you go, but take the mirror to see
So if you're feeling lost you can remember me
If you stayed with me you'd see a different side
But you have to trust me first for me to kill my pride

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
That's when I'll remain a beast
Or love will take me far from here?

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
Will you save me?
Or leave me dying here?

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
That's when I'll remain a beast
Or love will take me far from here?

The rose stops blooming
And the time is getting near
Will you save me?
Oh won't you take me far from here?

Don't leave me dying here

I'll let you go,
But you can have this magic mirror
So you see
That if you're ever feeling lost
Look at it to remember me

Look at this to remember me
Look at this to remember me
Look at this to remember me
Look at this to remember me

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
That's when I'll remain a beast
Or love will take me far from here?

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
Will you save me?
Oh won't you take me far from here?

The rose stops blooming
In my 21st year
That's when I'll remain a beast
Or love will take me far from here?

The rose stops blooming
And the time is getting near
Will you save me?
Oh won't you take me far from here?
Track Name: Enchantment
I cast my thoughts into eternal space
Nothing can defy the power of my mind
The universe is mine and all of its people
I choose whom to guide
And who to magnetize

I send down my light
And my life just for you
I lift you up higher
I show you the truth

And memories flow back
To a mind that was closed
And you're filled with remorse
For what you had let go

You call out my name
And you send your thoughts to me
And you know there's no end
As we fly through eternity

The power we contain
On our own multiplies
When you take me in your arms
When I look into your eyes

Enchantment
Enchantment

I penetrate your soul
As we passionately embrace
And together this world
We will both learn to face

I invoke you,
My spirit flies out and seeks you
Wherever you are
I know I will find you

Enchantment
Enchantment

Pay close attention
To the voice within your heart
As my spirit calls you closer,
So we're never apart.
Track Name: The Music Box
She looks into the mirror
Of her long forsaken dreams
The little girl inside her mind
Just cries or so it seems

She thinks back to forgotten times
Of dreams and aspirations
And wonders where her life has gone
And if there's time to save it

The music box plays on and on
Childhood memories lost in song
What have we become?
What have we done?

She thinks about a certain day
When love was all around
And she was strong within herself
And nothing brought her down

She feels the power deep inside
It's calling her again
She tries to run, she tries to hide,
She looks for an escape

The music box plays on and on
Childhood memories lost in song
What have we become?
What have we done?

Dreams that used to be so bright
Lost to thoughts of darkest night
What have we become?

And so the time has come once more
Another drink she pours
Another pill to hide the pain
And numb her from these thoughts

But through the haze of darkened light
She sees a face familiar
She knows she's seen him twice before
And wonders if he'll see her

He sings of love and sings of days
That she had near forgotten
He sings about the girl inside
And all the things she told him

She thinks about her dreams
That have flown away in time
She thinks of all the thoughts
That were lost within her mind

She thinks of how things might have been
If things weren't as they were
And wonders if there's still a way
A path reserved for her

The music box plays on and on
Childhood memories lost in song
What have we become?
What have we done?

Dreams that used to be so bright
Lost to thoughts of darkest night
What have we become?
What have we done?

The music box plays on and on
Childhood memories lost in song
What have we become?
What have we done?

Dreams that used to be so bright
Lost to thoughts of darkest night
What have we become?
What have we done?

She falls asleep and thinks about
Her long forsaken dreams
The little girl she'd lost inside
Is found, or so it seems
Track Name: Invisible
You might feel so on your own
Living in a world where you are all alone
You talk but they don't seem to know
That you're there

'cos they don't care
They're living life
Just dull routines
Until they die
But something deep inside
Says there's gotta be something more

Know that I will set you free
You're not invisible to me
I'm here for life
And far beyond as well
Far beyond as well

Free your mind from everything
It's your time so start again
Nothing ever stays the same anyway

All these thoughts that cloud your mind
Your sadness brought them back to life
But rainbows appear when tears are in your eyes

Know that I will set you free
You're not invisible to me
I'm here for life
And far beyond as well
Far beyond as well

This solitude,
These sands of time
The desert of your lonely life
Is just a way to open up your eyes

You know the truth
You know the way
You know the answers to your pain
You know that this whole world
Is just a foolish game

Know that I will set you free
You're not invisible to me
I'm here for life
And far beyond as well
Far beyond as well

Know that I will set you free
You're not invisible to me
I'm here for life
And far beyond as well
Far beyond as well

All these thoughts that cloud your mind
Your sadness brought them back to life
But angels appear when tears are in your eyes
