Innocence
Written by Anders Wollbeck, Mattias Lindblom, Tarja Turunen

You're not alone below the moon
All of us wait, for moment's gone too soon
You and me, breathe, to ignore the reason
Freedom, scream again

Inside of me, doors will stay open
A thousand lives to live
Waiting like universes do without an end
Love break into my innocence
Innocence, innocence, innocence
Innocence, innocence

Stay close to me
Everything you knew
Left with the wind
In times like this we do
You and me, breathe, to ignore the feeling
Freedom, scream again

Inside of me, doors will stay open
A thousand lives to live
Waiting like universes do without an end
Love break into my innocence
Innocence, innocence, innocence
Innocence, innocence

Inside of me, doors will stay open
A thousand lives to live
Waiting like universes do without an end
Love break into my innocence
Innocence, innocence, innocence
Innocence, innocence

Demons in You
Written by Julian Barrett, Erik Nyholm, Alex Jonson, Christel Sundberg, Tarja Turunen

Endless
My war to reason
Falling to pieces
When I could see now understand
Empty
My fears of treason
Trying to blind me
The brightest void is sucking me in.

Like a million geysers still asleep
Demons in you.

Lost in the light
Eternal seek for Paradise
Scared to loose the fight
With what’s in me
Found another side,
The darkest thoughts,
The deepest sea
Where sun and moon arise
It’s me.

Chaos
In isolation
Your only truth
What we can hear no one can understand
Madness
In desperation
A burst of anger
The shadow self is taking over.

Like a million geysers still asleep
Demons in you.

Lost in the light
Eternal seek for Paradise
Scared to loose the fight
With what’s in me
Found another side,
The darkest thoughts,
The deepest sea
Where sun and moon arise
It’s me.

Lost in the light
Eternal seek for Paradise
Scared to loose the fight
With what’s in me
Found another side,
The darkest thoughts,
The deepest sea
Where sun and moon arise
It’s me.

Victim of Ritual
Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja

Black Eyes and hardly breathing
When there's no light
You sacrifice
Alone amongst the living
You lost the fight before the fall

How did you end up in hell?

Hysterical, tragical
Victim of Ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She's a killer, killer
She's a killer, killer

Cold eyes for every sin
They tried to hide in thin disguise
Denied your soul from singing
Her darkest night, the night you died

How did you end up in hell?

Hysterical, tragical
Victim of Ritual
Cynical, critical
Victim of ritual
She's a killer, killer
She's a killer, killer

Pandemonium, where's your heart from?
Pandemonium, where's your heart from?
