Track Name: Abandoned House
There's a lady screaming through the window
Of an old abandoned house
It's black and white
As dark as night
And no one lets her out
The girl that took this photograph
And put it in this frame
Imprisoned me as well inside
Her never-ending game

She has control,
My mind is hers,
Forever under her spell
Away from civilization
I'm trapped within this hell
Children's toys in piles
In the middle of the floor
The ghosts are playing tricks again
They're locking all the doors

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la

There's a fading image in my mind
I see bright blue hair
The deepest sadness in her eyes
Is calling once again
Cleansed beneath the moonlight
The witches all in flight
Stones, and crystals, and sweet dreams
Love and sacrifice

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la

Seances and invocations,
Throughout the silent night
Rituals and secret names
Cast upon the fire
I don't know why I can't let go
Guess she's thrown away the key
I stand in this abandoned house
But now there's only me

La, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
Track Name: No One To Save Me
I want you 'till I get you
Then I know I'll change my mind
I can't seem to keep myself
Within the world that I desire
Sometimes I like to dream about
The things I know I'll never have
I make this promise to myself
Just to believe in something better instead
Instead

You are not real
You are just in my mind
There is no one to save me
There's no tears to cry
I'm deceiving myself
And I'm driving me down
To the place I will die
To the place we will drown

I want to be alone right now
Don't need you to be near
'cos everytime I leave my world
I'm left with something else to fear
But even though you're far away
I think about you everyday
I know that sometime soon
Our lives will change
And we'll be back again
Again

You are not real
You are just in my mind
There is no one to save me
There's no tears to cry
I'm deceiving myself
And I'm driving me down
To the place I will die
To the place we will drown

You are not real
You are just in my mind
There is no one to save me
There's no tears to cry
I'm deceiving myself
And I'm driving me down
To the place I will die
To the place we will drown
Track Name: Afraid
The sad truth is
The main reason you
Understand me
Is that I don't even know you

I wander this world
Alone in my thoughts
Waiting for something
That I have never sought

It's raining and all I can think of is you
It's not easy to believe
That these feelings could be true

When there's no one who understands
I put my life in a strangers hands
You become my fascination
But is it my imagination?
Am I more alone tonight
Than I've ever been before?
The sound of my beating heart
With the rain as it pours
Alone with my world
Alone in my mind
Can I share my thoughts with you?
'cos sometimes it feels I'm dying

I'm afraid of myself
I'm afraid of the world
Sometimes I just want something to hold onto
I would break down in your arms
If I knew I could trust you
Maybe you'd be the first one
That I'd let my guard down to
If you knew who I were
Maybe you'd turn away
I don't know what to say
To make you stay
I don't care if you're silent
Or got nothing to say
I'll just look into your eyes
And I'll float away

In your arms I am free
In your dreams I've been flying
If you could see my eyes
You'd know I've been crying
Track Name: Drawn By Love
One night while I was dreaming
Drawn by love to many places
I was shown things that have haunted me
Such sad and lonely faces

That's where all the lonely people run and hide
That's where everybody goes to cry
That's where all their hopes and dreams
Give up and pass them by
That's where many people say goodbye
To life

Flying higher than the sun
Looking down upon our world
Watching all those lonely faces
Suicidal boys and girls

That's where all the lonely people run and hide
That's where everybody goes to cry
These are all the prayers we have to answer in one night
That's where many people fall and die

But I still love you,
I still love you
And I still love you,
I still love you

These are all the prayers we have to answer in one night
That's where many people say goodbye
To their lives.
Track Name: Just Lies
You, you've got me
I, I want you
And you can see
What I will do
To get you

I need
To forget the time, to forget the time
And get you out of my mind
Just forget about you
And forget about me
And forget this whole life
And forget all these dreams
In the moment, in the moment
I need to be here,
Right now, right here
I don't need you,
Now I don't need you
And I don't want you
And I can't see you

But it's lies again
You're always on my mind
It makes me go insane
Don't wanna admit
But I can't deny it's true for you

I need
To forget the time, to forget the time
And get you out of my mind
Just forget about you
And forget about me
And forget this whole life
And forget all these dreams
In the moment, in the moment
I need to be here,
Right now, right here
I don't need you,
Now I don't need you
And I don't want you
And I can't see you anymore

You, you've got me
I, I want you
And you can see
What I will do
To get you

It's just lies again
You're always on my mind
It makes me go insane
Don't wanna admit
But I can't deny it's true for you
Can't seem to escape
Can't ever get away from all you do
I know you must have put a spell on me
Track Name: When The Heart Breaks
The heart aches
When the heart breaks
And you never can hide it for long

And the rain comes down
On the outside to hide the pain
Inside you're broken again

You pray by tomorrow
At the break of the dawn
The hurt you can't run from is gone
But you just wake to find
That it's still on your mind
And you wonder
Is freedom a lie?

Why can't we get along?
I'll admit I was wrong to you
Over and over again
If you just let me try
Maybe you'd be surprised
And maybe we could turn back the time
The time

You pray by tomorrow
At the break of the dawn
The hurt you can't run from is gone
But you just wake to find
That it's still on your mind
And you wonder
Is freedom a lie?

You wonder,
Is freedom a lie?
Track Name: Feeling Down
So,
You've been feeling down,
Sugar,
Nothing ever lasts,
Oh,
Too much on your mind,
Let go,
All you need you'll find

I'm here,
Here with you to stay
My love,
Never goes away
And I feel,
All you're going through
It's real,
I've been through it too

Seems no,
No one understands
Just how bad,
This can make you feel
When you listen to this song
Then you'll free yourself from right or wrong

You'll be somewhere else with me
In the sky, feeling high and free
We'll hide all of our fears in the past
This love will forever last

So,
You've been feeling down,
Sugar,
Nothing ever lasts,
Oh,
Too much on your mind,
Let go,
All you need you'll find.
Track Name: Blue Flower
From old and dying cities
To a world we know today
From times of dreams
And a thirst for knowledge
To a place of fear and anguish
From a bright blue sky
And a starlit night
To a world of fog and cloud
From the cleanest waters running swift
To disease, and strife and war
From a dawn of hope and spirits bright
To depression, chaos, hatred
From a night of song where all were praised
To a drunken night of fighting
From a world of beauty, peace, and love
To a time of slavery
From a world of magic, fantasy
To a place resembling hell

Out of the darkness, out of the dirt
Out of the pain, our of the hurt
Grows a Blue Flower,
A flower of peace,
A flower of hope,
And a flower of dreams
It's a flower of love
With a song from the heart
And a dream of the future
And a true piece of art
The Blue Flower it grows
In the mind of us all
Bringing beauty to life
Watch the old world fall

We will find satisfaction
As the brighter day dawns
Children of darkness
Awake and come forth
An unquiet heart
In a time of despair
And some poetic words
To drive us from fear

And brighten our spirits
Wake up what's inside
Join forces together
There's nothing to hide
We will fight for our freedom
We will fight for our lives
We will fight for survival
We will fight for our rights

We will build our new cities
Of splendor and praise
We will take down the houses
Boxed in their cliches
We will drive out the demons
Controlling our world
As the force and the power within
Is unfurled

And the difference we make
With our past far behind
Will carve a new history
In place and in time
So our names will go down
When the future is bright
And the world full of darkness
Will be one of light
All it takes is commitment
Direction and guidance
Which is what we have promised
To spread and provide
We must not give our lives
We just don't have the time
To waste on these trivial things to divide
If we just leave this world
And we don't even try
Then in cages they'll keep
Both our bodies and minds
Who wants slavery, chaos and violence and lies?
When a much better world
Is right here by our side
To embrace, to create
And to make full of love
Use the present,
Change the future,
With the guidance above
Put the past behind us
To reach the new hour
We must all come together
To seek the Blue Flower
To seek the Blue Flower

And brighten our spirits
Wake up what's inside
Join forces together
There's nothing to hide
We will fight for our freedom
We will fight for our lives
We will fight for survival
We will fight for our rights
Fight for our rights.
Track Name: Before I Fall
Maybe,
I'll find a way,
Just maybe
From where I stand here
Alone and dazed I stand here
To free you,
Open your heart and free you
Right before me
You stand right here before me

A sign that you have left me here alone
Oh why did you leave me on my own

To fix my mistakes
Before I fall and break
Figure out this life
Before I fail and die
Cure all my pain
Before it starts again
Cry out all these tears
Built up through all these years
This is why you've left me here alone

Tomorrow,
There is no more tomorrow
In this sorrow,
Encompassed in this sorrow
Just waiting,
Alone and hurt I'm waiting
But you're broken
And I can't fix what I've broken
I can't stand this,
I'll never meet your standards
Won't understand this
I'll never understand this

Now that you have left me here alone
Oh why did you leave me here alone

Fix my mistakes
Before I fall and break
Figure out this life
Before I fail and die
Cure all my pain
Before it starts again
Cry out all these tears
Built up through all these years
This is why you've left me here alone

Fix my mistakes
Before I fall and break
Figure out this life
Before I fail and die
Cure all my pain
Before it starts again
Cry out all these tears
Built up through all these years

Maybe this is why you've left me here alone
Track Name: No Way Out
Will we ever find the reason
For all our pain
And if we ever got away
Could it be the same
After all this time
After all this hatred
They've put in our minds

People just come and go
Company makes me so alone
I don't recognize myself anymore
And there's no way out
If I was guaranteed
That you could take me to a better place
I'd get up and leave right now
Without the slightest of delays

Can't live with this grief
It's become too much
So much pain we must face
Too much pain in our hearts
We all put on these masks
Trying to be someone else
But inside we're all weak
And inside we all know that

People just come and go
Company makes me so alone
I don't recognize myself anymore
And there's no way out
If I was guaranteed
That you could take me to a better place
I'd get up and leave right now
Without the slightest of delays

Cry all you want to but it's not gonna help
You can write down your feelings
Try to express yourself
But these feelings are forever
Stronger than words
And we never seem to get out
Of this crazy world
I was drawn into failure
I was drawn into you
I did every single thing
That you expected me to
Where do I go from here
In a world so insane
Will anyone of us be free
From the hurt and the pain

People just come and go
Company makes me so alone
I don't recognize myself anymore
And there's no way out
If I was guaranteed
That you could take me to a better place
I'd get up and leave right now
Without the slightest of delays

But there's no way out.
