Track Name: Silence
At first, they said
That if we couldn’t agree
We should stop talking

They sent us back home
Thinking we were wrong
That we were alone

They told us our vision
Our ambitions were foolish
And built on delusions

They told us we were dreaming
That we needed to wake up

When the daylight reflected on our skin
We looked around to see we’re not alone
We’re not alone

You keep on lying to hold us down
We won’t commit to silence

You don’t get to choose for us
We’re not, we’re not alone

I won’t commit to silence
Track Name: Liars
Liars
You’re all the same
You build up walls
Of lies you can’t disclaim
And as they close in
You’ll need to face it

Liars nothing else
You’ll never fill up the empty shells you are
Liars nothing else
You’ll never know just who you really are
You drift alone
In your own fantasy

Why does it always have to be this way
You’re piling up too many stories to keep the truth at bay
You’ve made it up so it would sound so interesting
You brought us down so you could look so outstanding
You thought we’d believe it all, it’s sickening
You went too far, no one is listening

Liars nothing else
You’ll never fill up the empty shells you are
Liars nothing else
You’ll never know just who you really are
You drift alone
In your own fantasy

You think you’re fooling everyone you know
That we all stare and listen ready to follow
You’re running alone through the maze you’ve built
Soon you will realise you’re helpless and lost in it
Is this who you are?

Lie after lie
The days go by
Is this really the only way for you to survive
We see through your game
We’ll forget your name
You’ll be left alone
With nothing else but shame

Tare down these walls make me forget

Liars nothing else
You’ll never fill up the empty shells you are
Liars nothing else
You’ll never know just who you really are
Tare down these walls make me forget
Track Name: The King Of Nothing
Is there something I am missing
You're all running in the same direction
Trying to hunt like a pack of wolves
Forgetting the ghosts that haunt you

Do you really think this is family
Hatred and anger as your only bond
Bragging your strength in numbers
And ending up alone

You're the king of the hill
Standing tall over ten feet of garbage and waste
Lord of an empire of traitors
and liars and cheaters and beggars
Your realm has no strenght at all
Only rumours and complaints
What a shame for a king

Is there something I am missing

You're all screaming like preachers on a mission
Treating like saints some stupid cowards
Only living by fashion and fiction

Let me rise, oh let me rise
Over nothing at all
Let me rise, oh let me rise
To be the king of nothing
I want to be the king of nothing

Throwing your words like daggers
Mocking everyone and everything you know
Thinking you are as wise
But no one cares and no one will ever do

Your feeble eyes have widened
At the sound of the expectable

You're the king of the hill
Standing tall over ten feet of garbage and waste
Lord of an empire of traitors
and liars and cheaters and beggars
Your realm has no strenght at all
Only rumours and complaints
What a shame for a king

Let me rise
Let me rise
Over nothing at all
Let me rise, oh let me rise
To be the king of nothing
I want to be the king of nothing

What am I hoping
What am I dreaming of
Why did I join your endless race to be alone

What is it this feeling
What is it that I got myself into
I ended up craving fame
Is this who I am?

Rise over nothing at all,
To be the king of nothing
I want to be the king of nothing
Track Name: Speaking The Unknown
Every word you spoke
And every thought you had
Build up the pressure in my lungs
Up to the breaking point
Time will soon be running out
I’ve had enough of your senseless shit

Why can’t you stop talking
You think you’re speaking the truth
But you know only lies
Made up your judgement
I’ve heard your screaming
You’re never listening

Every line you wrote
And every lie you told
They keep on feeding all the selfish ignorants like you
You think you’re preaching
You’re misinforming
You’re misleading
You’re the light that guides those who stray right down an helpless path

Burn, you foolish sheppard
Or learn, you senseless coward
I have a feeling that you’ll never get a hold of it
Maybe somehow you know but you just can’t admit
I made a promise to myself but I just can’t commit
I swore I’d lay low but I’m so sick of it

Why can’t you stop talking
You think you’re speaking the truth
But you know only lies
Made up your judgement
I’ve heard your screaming
You’re never listening

I’ve heard your screaming
You’re never listening

Why can’t you stop talking
You know only lies

Burn, you foolish sheppard
Or learn, you senseless coward
I have a feeling that you’ll never get a hold of it
Maybe somehow you know but you just can’t admit
I made a promise to myself but I just can’t commit
I swore I’d lay low but I’m so sick of it

Why you spread only lies
Track Name: Behind My Mask
Behind our smile hides the doubt
Founded in judging the world around
We have no choice but to blend in
To keep on walking, to keep on faking
To keep on faking
Before madness reaches you

Where’s the savior?
We kept praying for
Where’s the savior?
That’ll turn everything around
Where’s the savior you might ask, are we still looking?
I’m still searching

Behind our smile hides need
To disagree, to scream out loud
Cause we don’t belong
If only someone would let us free
We’d be the change
We’d be the change
The walls will crumble

A breath of fresh air
Fills my lungs
Have I found what we’re looking for?

Where’s the savior?
We kept praying for
Where’s the savior?
That’ll turn everything around
Where’s the savior you might ask, are we still looking?
I’m done searching

The walls will crumble
To let me build them again
I’m ready to explode, to set free

I’ll rise above and I’ll stand tall
We’ll rise above and we’ll stand tall
I’ll rise above and I’ll stand tall
And i’ll give the world a chance

I’ll rise above and I’ll stand tall
We’ll rise above and we’ll stand tall

The world is ours
This world is ours
Track Name: Immortal
I took a stand to look back on the life I had
Only to see devastation, desolation and pain

I don’t want to resuscitate
I’ve had enough of this selfish world
I feel guilty for all I’ve seen

Oh do not get me wrong
I’ve had enough of your fighting and looting and wars
I was hoping and begging for something more
I’ll set free my eyes
And rest my head of its worries and guilt

I heard rumors of promises
And I heard questions, but never any answers

But I hear your greater calling
Asking me to live again
So I made myself
a promise I will keep
I will die tonight
And wake up to a new tomorrow

I’ll let my heart blind my eyes
And walk alone down a righteous path
I’ll let my heart heal my head
And I will do my best

I don’t want to resuscitate
I’ve had enough of this selfish world
I feel guilty for all I’ve seen

So let’s give ourselves time
For one last fight

Oh, can you feel the irony of a war for peace
I’m not immortal
I’m not dying to live again
Track Name: The Sailor's Rain
I’m unsinkable
Now let the water rise
I won’t drown

His anchor has been out at sea for years
the deep blue has been a home more than a trap
It has seen all of his smiles and all of his tears
There’s nowhere a broken compass cannot lead

I’m unsinkable
I am unsinkable
Now let the water rise
I won’t drown

With only the stars to guide him home
He let the ship drift on his own
He let it drift away
He felt no need to come back home
He’s lost at sea

He felt no need to come back home
No!

With time, the sky turned grey
The swell got deeper and the water colder
His ship to the winds was a prey

And seeing in the distance
The rays of sun he was hoping for
He knew the days would get better

I’m unsinkable
I am unsinkable
Now let the water rise
No, I won’t drown
Track Name: Swarm
It might be a plague
But it won’t be our death
We’ll see the sun behind their legions

I can’t let this happen
I won’t let them through to you
We’ll make it I swear
We’ll see the sun again

I’ll fight them all
I’ll fight them all
I won’t let them through to you
I’ll fight them all
I won’t let them through to you

If you stay behind me
We’re stronger than they are
If you stay behind me
We’ll show them who we are

We’ll fight with fire
We’ll let them burn
We’ll fight with fire
We’ll let them burn
Burn
Burn
We’ll let them burn

They’ll let you go when you’ve nothing left to give
But they’ll keep coming back for more
Run, run until your lungs collapse
But they’ll find you no matter where you are

I’ll slay them by millions
And I won’t dare to leave one alive
They have no reason
I can’t scare them and hope they’ll hide

You can’t just ignore them all
And walk away
They’ll feed on every feeling
Let me show them my way

They were so scared I’d be something
They tried to scare me away
But lights are on me
Track Name: Chasing Stars
You’ll find me chasing stars
My heavy breath and my heart that pounds so loud
Won’t keep me from looking further than our grounds
If somewhere in the stars lies the key to your heart
I’ll make sure I...
I’ll make sure I get a hold of it.

Behold, as I try in every way I can
To make sure you always wear a smile
I am ready to face anything
If I could know it’d make you happy

My heavy breath and my heart that pounds so loud
Won’t keep me from looking further than our grounds
If somewhere in the stars lies the key to your heart
I’ll make sure get a hold of it.

And if my voice could break your silence
You’d hear me screaming out, you’d hear me
And if my voice could break your silence
You’d hear me screaming out, you’d hear me

If only you could feel the strength that lies in me and see
The fire you’ve lit inside will burn as long as you want it to
Take all the time you need I swear I’ll wait for you
Take all the time you need I swear I’ll love you
You’ll find me chasing stars

My heavy breath and my heart that pounds so loud
Won’t keep me from looking further than our grounds
If somewhere in the stars lies the key to your heart

I’ll find my way I swear
I’d take you anywhere
You’ll find me chasing stars
I’m only waiting for a sign
