No Bitter End
Written by Alex Scholpp, Mattias Lindblom, Tarja Turunen, Daniel Pieper

There's a road for everyone
Cos every heart's the same
To forgive what you have done
A silent wish for change.

Desire is a flame alive
When dreams are far away
Open up your inner eye
Let hope save the day.

She will fall all over you
Like a rain, shine the new
And will make the path for you to take
Till the end, walk you through.

Time won't wait
Lead your fate
Never let go.

Blackout the sun
Light no where
Tell me you don't need it anymore
No bitter end.

Hold on, don't run
Forever stay yourself
The one that you defend
No bitter end.

Suddenly, mysteriously
How brave worlds are born
They cut away the misery
For hearts to find home.

To be there with all you need
And nothing left to prove
Take a chance, oh, but never leave
Know it all starts with you.

Time won't wait
Lead your fate
Never let go.

Blackout the sun
Light no where
Tell me you don't need it anymore
No bitter end

Hold on, don't run
Forever stay yourself
The one that you defend
No bitter end.

There's a road for everyone
Cos every heart's the same
To forgive what you have done
A silent wish for change.

Blackout the sun
Hold on, don't run...

Blackout the sun
Light no where
Tell me you don't need it anymore
No bitter end.

Hold on, don't run
Forever stay yourself
The one that you defend
No bitter end.

House of Wax
Written by Paul McCartney

Lightning hits the house of wax
Poets spill out on the street
To set a light the incomplete
Remainders of the future

Hidden in the yard. Hidden in the yard.

Thunder drowns the trumpets blast
Poets scatter through the night
But they can only dream of flight
Away from their confusion

Hidden in the yard. Underneath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all

Lightning hits the house of wax
Women scream and run around
To dance upon the battleground
Like wild demented horses

Hidden in the yard. Underneath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all
