End of Time 05:58
End of Time The end of time, has come, for us Soon the world, will become dust Do you feel invincible Like life was never-ending? Springtime in a hero’s saga Before the war Will you dream a waking dream? Like something of another world? An oracle foretelling what’s in store (End of time) Fate has a way of making games Of the plans that we’ve laid (Armies will fall) Wait till you see what we face In this day of reckoning And it feels so surreal when Skies fall down, and fears reveal With open eyes, I’ll read the signs Arms open wide when we reach the end The end of time The clouds consume the sky It fills with our screams As our lives pass Right before our eyes I can feel it in the air when Everything is changing There’s no time to feel regret When the storms are raging (End of time) It has a way of making games Of the plans that we’ve laid (Armies will fall) Wait till you see what we face In this day of reckoning And it feels so surreal when Skies fall down, and fears reveal With open eyes (The clouds consume the sky) I’ll read the signs (It fills with our screams) Arms open wide (As our lives pass) When we reach the end (Right before our eyes) The end of time Run to the light Hold your hands to the sky Everything in your mind Is real at the end of time (The end of time) Run to the light (Has come for us) Hold your hands to the sky (Soon the world) Everything in your mind (Will become dust) Is real at the end of time

The Great Wall Truth beyond words I can feel beyond hurt I see through you to what lies within There is a world Beyond what is heard Voices betray the child within (Hide behind the lie…) Hide behind a lie what you’re frightened by (Wall yourself inside…) Wall yourself inside this den of lions (How high does it go…) How high does it go? What pain lies below (Stones of memories…) Stones of memories you never let go? Run away, cannot face Your demons hidden All you are, try too hard To build this great wall Another lie, one more time Who do you think you are? Soon you’ll find, you’re trapped inside This great wall (The… Great… Wall) Brick and mortar (The… Great… Wall) Walls won’t collapse (The… Great… Wall) No matter how hard you try I hurt so much (The… Great… Wall) Selfishness takes hold (The… Great… Wall) I just can’t take anymore (The… Great… Wall) Every word now a lie in my eyes… I feel I must protect me Fear lies within, life lives without Everything’s turned upside down I cannot reach through, I cannot reach you This wall’s built to last forever Cold as stone, you’re so alone The weight of it all can crush you In this catacomb, so many sins to atone Why won’t you try, why must you.. (Hide behind the lie…) Hide behind a lie what you’re frightened by (Wall yourself inside…) Wall yourself inside this den of lions (How high does it go…) How high does it go? What pain lies below (Stones of memories…) Stones of memories you never let go? Run away, cannot face Your demons hidden All you are, try too hard To build this great wall Another lie, one more time Who do you think you are? Soon you’ll find, you’re trapped inside This great wall (The… Great… Wall) Brick and mortar (The… Great… Wall) Walls won’t collapse (The… Great… Wall) No matter how hard you try I hurt so much (The… Great… Wall) Selfishness takes hold (The… Great… Wall) I just can’t take anymore (The… Great… Wall) Every word now a lie in my eyes… I feel I must protect me I see through you, to what lies within This great wall Great wall

Sanctuary 05:44
Sanctuary Make me feel safe, I’m in your shelter Leave the chaos, I’m in your welfare Lie beside me in this timeless refuge Where I need this peace to feel alright Far away from this mad, mad world around I rest tonight. Sanctuary Here inside lies only freedom To feel alive in your sanctuary (Sanctuary, it is my home) Here we lie to come undone (Sanctuary, it’s my safe zone) To be satisfied, it’s necessary Everything comes down to this now The weight of all we’ve had to carry (Sanctuary, it’s my safe place) Worlds collide but pass beside us (Sanctuary, from the human race) Here inside, Sanctuary Place the now first, before the after Let the day go, it doesn’t matter Stand beside me, feel the tranquil breeze Where the halcyon calms the winds and waves And we’ll breathe as if we’ve never breathed before And we feel the same in your Sanctuary Here inside lies only freedom To feel alive in your sanctuary (Sanctuary, it is my home) Here we lie to come undone (Sanctuary, it’s my safe zone) To be satisfied, it’s necessary Everything comes down to this now The weight of all we’ve had to carry (Sanctuary, it’s my safe place) Worlds collide but pass beside us (Sanctuary, from the human race) Here inside, Sanctuary Whispers dance on air, which surrounds me And caresses my body Sanctuary Sympathy invokes pain My minds ease of stress and hurt Sanctuary Make me feel safe, I’m in your shelter Leave the chaos, I’m in your welfare Stay beside me as the world is spinning ‘cause I need you here to feel alright And we’ll speak as if we’ve never needed words To see eye to eye Sanctuary Here inside lies only freedom To feel alive in your sanctuary (Sanctuary, it is my home) Here we lie to come undone (Sanctuary, it’s my safe zone) To be satisfied, it’s necessary Everything comes down to this now The weight of all we’ve had to carry (Sanctuary, it’s my safe place) Worlds collide but pass beside us (Sanctuary, from the human race) Here inside, Sanctuary

Moment of Truth (Featuring guest vocalist, boy soprano Liam Candib) I can’t believe my eyes I see, like I’ve never seen before It’s like a new day dawning (Visions, guide my soul) I fear (Wonder, takes control) The time is near (Silence, beckons me) I hear (Darkness, is all I see) It calling (This is the moment of truth) And all we’ve seen, all we do (This is the moment of truth) Just a prelude to this moment, This moment of truth What is happening? I feel something resonate inside It’s like a desperate longing (Voices, guide my soul) And it seems (Wonder, takes control) Just like a dream (Feelings, guide me in) That leaves (A new life, I begin) Us wanting (This is the moment of truth) And all we’ve seen, all we do (This is the moment of truth) Just a prelude to this moment, This moment of truth Tides are turning This fated moment And the fear subsides Running out of time One life and it’s one chance To rise or to fall When one breath may be all that’s left I’ll give it all Nothing left to do It’s time to wander into This great unknown, our destiny (The mystery, that’s inside) And we’ll see (The light, becomes my guide) Whatever we’ll be (The shadow, was once seen) We’ll meet (What now, does life mean) Whatever fate will bring (This is the moment of truth) And all we’ve seen, all we do (This is the moment of truth) Just a prelude to this moment, This moment of truth

Never Before 05:02
Never Before Today we run In case tomorrow never comes (Like never before) Never imagined where I find myself, right now The world can change with every waking hour Almost afraid to turn around (Like never before) (Here we are) Here we are, running again The world’s on fire like never before (Like never before) So we are trying so hard Can’t find the Eden we’re looking for (What we’re looking for) We’ve lost innocence It makes no sense (Here we are) Here we are, running again Like never before (Like never before) Each step I take, I know I never will return (Like never before) I can’t erase what my eyes have seen this time We can’t go back Just have to keep on facing forward Never forgetting where we’ve been (Like never before) (Here we are) Here we are, running again The world’s on fire like never before (Like never before) So we are trying so hard Can’t find the Eden we’re looking for (What we’re looking for) We’ve lost innocence It makes no sense (Here we are) Here we are, running again Like never before (Like never before) Memories (Like ruins) Lay like ruins Fallen away (Like ashes) Like ashes My visions not clear As I search for the meaning of life I challenge my fears I must fight through them (Here we are) Here we are, running again The world’s on fire like never before (Like never before) So we are trying so hard Can’t find the Eden we’re looking for (What we’re looking for) We’ve lost innocence It makes no sense (Here we are) Here we are, running again Like never before (Like never before) Here we are… (Running again like never before) Running again like never before… Here we are, running again (The world’s on fire) The world’s on fire … So we are trying so hard Can’t find the Eden we’re looking for (What we’re looking for) We’ve lost innocence It makes no sense Here we are, running again Like never before (Like never before)

Dream Before I Sleep You’ll never leave this world in my heart Though you’ve already gone away I can see when I close my eyes But I am blind to find the way I’m out of my senses We’re all out of time You’ve crossed over the edge But you’ll always be mine You’re so far away I must remember your face Whenever rain smells sweet on the breeze The silence is noise I must imagine your voice Like a dream before I sleep Feels like the world is spinning so fast We must beware of looking back I have heard that time heals all wounds But I’ll never forget all that has passed I’m out of my senses We’re all out of time You’ve crossed over the edge But you’ll always be mine You’re so far away I must remember your face Whenever rain smells sweet on the breeze The silence is noise I must imagine your voice Like a dream before I sleep So many times I thought you were real But then you fade away Why won’t you say that you’re just a vision? How many times must I awake? You’re so far away I must remember your face Whenever rain smells sweet on the breeze The silence is noise I must imagine your voice Like a dream before I sleep You’re so far away I must remember your face Whenever rain smells sweet on the breeze The silence is noise I must imagine your voice Like a dream before I sleep

I Will Fight to the End At the edge of fear The point of no return is here And all the life we’ve held so dear Is threatening to disappear We have to Fight to the end until we (I will fight to the end) Reach our victory Stand again Have to defend when the (I will fight to the end) Violence closes in Stand again I will search the sky To find the star to be my guide And have the strength to last the night So we can stand, so we can fight We have to Fight to the end until we (I will fight to the end) Reach our victory Stand again Have to defend when the (I will fight to the end) Violence closes in Stand again I have arrived, to steal your fate To take all your dreams, so you cannot relate The power you know, shall no longer be seen Trapped in silence for eternity Please, I must be freed (Release the fire, burning within me) Release the fire, burning within me (I’ll fight to the end) I’ll fight to the end Vanquish this tragedy (Break the silence that binds me) Break the silence that binds me (I’ll fight to the end) I’ll fight to the end I’ll fight to the end Reach for your last breath Soon there will be none left What you thought was life A memory now gone, the pressure engulfs you Please, I must be freed (Release the fire, burning within me) Release the fire, burning within me (I’ll fight to the end) I’ll fight to the end Vanquish this tragedy (Break the silence that binds me) Break the silence that binds me (I’ll fight to the end) I’ll fight to the end I’ll fight to the end My family shows no hope, at all At all But for them, I must remain strong Remain strong My power is my pride, until I’m gone I’m gone I, I will fight (I will fight to the end) To the end To the bitter end I, I will fight (I will fight to the end) To the end To the bitter end People will admire, my tolerance for pain For pain My name shall live, on with no shame No shame A light for all, in these dark times Dark times I, I will fight (I will fight to the end) To the end To the bitter end I, I will fight (I will fight to the end) To the end To the bitter end

Every Breath 06:14
Every Breath I used to feel so deeply Like depths of oceans I used to reach much farther Than expanse of seas Sometimes I close my eyes To drown in memory I hold within my secrets the reasons I am far too swept away To be rescued I’ve lost all sense of faith In the lessons We learn in time With every breath we take I will love you If the heavens fall to the earth If we lose our way and Forget where we started I’ll hold on to the end Every Breath You used to take me higher Than heights of mountains We used to live each moment Just to feel alive But now the distance seems like Such a great divide And now we’re lost within the feelings When the innocence is blown away By the ever-raging winds of change I won’t be moved With every breath we take I will love you If the heavens fall to the earth If we lose our way and Forget where we started I’ll hold on to the end Every Breath I search within for the time and space From this life to the silence of death I will give to you everything I have Even when there’s nothing left With every breath we take I will love you If the heavens fall to the earth If we lose our way and Forget where we started I’ll hold on to the end Every Breath
