Anteroom Of Death

Written by Kiko Masbaum, Michelle Leonard, Tarja Turunen

Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the Joker, King or Queen?
Place your cards as they're coming
Came to win
Lost everything
Gambling rider pull the strings
Pull them tighter

Let them in

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who's got the keys
And who has not?
Sell your fortune to me
Cause I can still read behind all that
Burn your fingers
Trade a dream
Watch the clock as it's ticking

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Blinded in the dark
I'm touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you're searching
Learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow
Finally

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Until My Last Breath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Cannot cry it loud enough 
I'm giving up this ghost 
How can I still justify 
When you deny my voice 
In this nothing I'm not allowed 
I just follow alone 
Words as weapons without a sound 
Echoes dying unborn 

Until my last breath 
You'll never know 
Until you feel the silence 
When I am gone 
Now it's vanishing 
Everything 
What we might have been 
Only now your prays call my name 
But you won't see again 

Who can change this memory? 

Inside it needs to burn 
Worship by the enemy 
The guilty take their turns 
Watching as it's disappearing 
Shadows all that remain 
Wishes slowly crossing over 
In this parade of pain 

Until my last breath 
You'll never know 
Until you feel the silence 
When I am gone 
Now it's vanishing 
Everything 
What we might have been 
Only now your prays call my name 
But you won't see again

I Feel Immortal

Written by Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad, Kerli Koiv, Tarja Turunen

Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no more death to fear
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

I feel immortal
And I am not scared

In For A Kill

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

Where do you go from here?
It's dragging you under
Nothing could be more clear
When you are the hunter
Is that a dream to die for?
A prize

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

You and your twisted minds
It's making us shiver
How can we be so blind
The fear you deliver
It's all a grand illusion
A trick

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

Underneath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Even in my darkest times
Overcome with worry
Find the comfort in the storm
No reason to be sorry
Look inside for a place to hide
All around the faithless wait full of expectations
They will never see the beauty in the imperfections
The more I show
The less they know

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Every little cut runs deep
Masked in my tomorrow
Bringing wisdom that I need for all the time I borrow
My other side is left behind

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Little Lies

Written by Alex Scholpp, Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Take my faith with an open hand and warm embrace
My confidant
Use my words
Take the good away and leave the worst to sell me out

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Feed the flames
Empty wishes with no room to blame
My sacrifice
Deep inside
There is nothing left to stand behind
But

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Little lies
Little lies
Nothing is what it seems

Rivers Of Lust

Written by Kid Crazy, Johan Westmar, Kristoffer Karlsson, Jessika Lundstrom, Tarja Turunen

Violent hands come at midnight
Hold me down
I can't make a sound
In their arms
Still unwanted
Crave the child
Be forever wiled

Stranger, danger
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Morning sun
Break the shelter
Turn back time
Wash away my crime

Betrayer, slayer
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Found at noon
Clutching still the stone

Dark Star

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Burning out in the distance you're falling
Starting to fade
Light is condemned to be tied down
By gravity close to the end
Do you still remember?
Before the weight that pulled you under
Dared you to rise

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Empty is never enough
You keep clawing for what you can't reach
Smothering space filled without any grace
And I can't breathe
Nothing lasts forever
Even the stars will lose their luster
Returning to dust

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Falling Awake

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

The Archive of Lost Dreams

Written by Tarja Turunen

Far from the light to reach beneath a veil of mist
Countless stories were left to rest in peace

Darkened and calm
The grave uncared
Once a haven filled with hope
The archive of lost dreams

We send our inner fears for the ocean to score
Waiting it takes them all away from the shore
Deepest beliefs from billions of souls
Longing for our wishes to find a way back home

Aah, naiad
The last one in the unknown
The keeper of our written dreams

Aah, promises
None of them were left behind
She blessed them with her kiss
See.

Hear and feel
The miracle of life
Believe the signs and trust you'll stay alive
Descend to find the depth of your heart
Mysterious Naiad
Now the circle's closed forever

Aah, naiad
The archive is gone
We are on our own

Crimson Deep

Written by Angela Heldmann, Bart Hendrickson, Tarja Turunen

Sometimes I see the pulse
Numb I feel,
So unreal.
Blood on my lips I taste the heavy lead.
What can I find behind the mirror,
I'll never know.
Who s the reflection within?

Should I frame for you the other world?

Another world?
I've heard the voices of Elysium.
The scent of a sudden wish,
Never there, everywhere.
Read me the space in-between.

Sharp is the edge of all discovery,
Now I see.
A scar without suffering, impossible.
I'll wait until my last day
With no shame.
Who's to blame?
Shaping the signs left for me.

Come to me
I cried
I need you.
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark.

Far beneath my breath
I'm burning
At my core.
Show me how
Let me see beyond
I will find
My crimson deep

We Are

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

How cold is the heart
My world is on fire
How deep is the mark
When you leave and your dream turn to water
I let myself feel
I'm wishing for something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

With a smile you move on
Every fear left unspoken
There was hope
Now it's gone
So believe there is love in the open
You just have to let go and turn into something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Break the shade
See your hate
Black flames
No names
Who are you?
Janette said.

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Naiad

Written by Angela Heldmann, Torsten Stenzel, Adrian Zagoritis, Tarja Turunen

She hears the distant soft caress

There in the gloom.

Colors surround with tenderness

Guiding her through.

In the forgotten sweet abyss

Another sound

Twilight floating memories

Always without.

Gloaming

There above the surface

An illusion

Reaching down for me.

What lies beneath

Beyond the ocean s door

Tranquil is the kiss

Of the azure rising deep

Sleeping ever more

Naiad s mystery

What lies beneath.

Guarding their immorality

Saints in the sand.

Stranger than beautiful eerie

An ancient land

Circle of sixteen turned to stone

And still they keep

Shimmering crystal promises

One space between.

Breathing the newborn waves.

Kneeling for the sea she became.

Still Of The Night

Written by David Coverdale, John Sykes

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
An' I can't take no more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
An' I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night
In the still of the night

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
An' hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come

In the still of the night
In the cool moonlight
I feel my heart is aching
In the still of the night

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
An' I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night

In the forgotten sweet abyss

Another sound

Twilight floating memories

Always without.

Gloaming

There above the surface

An illusion

Reaching down for me.

What lies beneath

Beyond the ocean s door

Tranquil is the kiss

Of the azure rising deep

Sleeping ever more

Naiad s mystery

What lies beneath.

Guarding their immorality

Saints in the sand.

Stranger than beautiful eerie

An ancient land

Circle of sixteen turned to stone

And still they keep

Shimmering crystal promises

One space between.

Breathing the newborn waves.

Kneeling for the sea she became.

Dark Star

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Burning out in the distance you're falling
Starting to fade
Light is condemned to be tied down
By gravity close to the end
Do you still remember?
Before the weight that pulled you under
Dared you to rise

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Empty is never enough
You keep clawing for what you can't reach
Smothering space filled without any grace
And I can't breathe
Nothing lasts forever
Even the stars will lose their luster
Returning to dust

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Underneath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Even in my darkest times
Overcome with worry
Find the comfort in the storm
No reason to be sorry
Look inside for a place to hide
All around the faithless wait full of expectations
They will never see the beauty in the imperfections
The more I show
The less they know

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Every little cut runs deep
Masked in my tomorrow
Bringing wisdom that I need for all the time I borrow
My other side is left behind

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Little Lies

Written by Alex Scholpp, Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Take my faith with an open hand and warm embrace
My confidant
Use my words
Take the good away and leave the worst to sell me out

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Feed the flames
Empty wishes with no room to blame
My sacrifice
Deep inside
There is nothing left to stand behind
But

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Little lies
Little lies
Nothing is what it seems

Still Of The Night

Written by David Coverdale, John Sykes

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
An' I can't take no more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
An' I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night
In the still of the night

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
An' hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come

In the still of the night
In the cool moonlight
I feel my heart is aching
In the still of the night

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
An' I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night

Rivers Of Lust

Written by Kid Crazy, Johan Westmar, Kristoffer Karlsson, Jessika Lundstrom, Tarja Turunen

Violent hands come at midnight
Hold me down
I can't make a sound
In their arms
Still unwanted
Crave the child
Be forever wiled

Stranger, danger
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Morning sun
Break the shelter
Turn back time
Wash away my crime

Betrayer, slayer
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Found at noon
Clutching still the stone

In For A Kill

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

Where do you go from here?
It's dragging you under
Nothing could be more clear
When you are the hunter
Is that a dream to die for?
A prize

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

You and your twisted minds
It's making us shiver
How can we be so blind
The fear you deliver
It's all a grand illusion
A trick

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

I Feel Immortal

Written by Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad, Kerli Koiv, Tarja Turunen

Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no more death to fear
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

I feel immortal
And I am not scared

We Are

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

How cold is the heart
My world is on fire
How deep is the mark
When you leave and your dream turn to water
I let myself feel
I'm wishing for something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

With a smile you move on
Every fear left unspoken
There was hope
Now it's gone
So believe there is love in the open
You just have to let go and turn into something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Break the shade
See your hate
Black flames
No names
Who are you?
Janette said.

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Falling Awake

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

The Archive of Lost Dreams

Written by Tarja Turunen

Far from the light to reach beneath a veil of mist
Countless stories were left to rest in peace

Darkened and calm
The grave uncared
Once a haven filled with hope
The archive of lost dreams

We send our inner fears for the ocean to score
Waiting it takes them all away from the shore
Deepest beliefs from billions of souls
Longing for our wishes to find a way back home

Aah, naiad
The last one in the unknown
The keeper of our written dreams

Aah, promises
None of them were left behind
She blessed them with her kiss
See.

Hear and feel
The miracle of life
Believe the signs and trust you'll stay alive
Descend to find the depth of your heart
Mysterious Naiad
Now the circle's closed forever

Aah, naiad
The archive is gone
We are on our own

Crimson Deep

Written by Angela Heldmann, Bart Hendrickson, Tarja Turunen

Sometimes I see the pulse
Numb I feel,
So unreal.
Blood on my lips I taste the heavy lead.
What can I find behind the mirror,
I'll never know.
Who s the reflection within?

Should I frame for you the other world?

Another world?
I've heard the voices of Elysium.
The scent of a sudden wish,
Never there, everywhere.
Read me the space in-between.

Sharp is the edge of all discovery,
Now I see.
A scar without suffering, impossible.
I'll wait until my last day
With no shame.
Who's to blame?
Shaping the signs left for me.

Come to me
I cried
I need you.
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark.

Far beneath my breath
I'm burning
At my core.
Show me how
Let me see beyond
I will find
My crimson deep

Anteroom Of Death

Written by Kiko Masbaum, Michelle Leonard, Tarja Turunen

Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the Joker, King or Queen?
Place your cards as they're coming
Came to win
Lost everything
Gambling rider pull the strings
Pull them tighter

Let them in

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who's got the keys
And who has not?
Sell your fortune to me
Cause I can still read behind all that
Burn your fingers
Trade a dream
Watch the clock as it's ticking

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Blinded in the dark
I'm touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you're searching
Learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow
Finally

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Until My Last Breath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Cannot cry it loud enough 
I'm giving up this ghost 
How can I still justify 
When you deny my voice 
In this nothing I'm not allowed 
I just follow alone 
Words as weapons without a sound 
Echoes dying unborn 

Until my last breath 
You'll never know 
Until you feel the silence 
When I am gone 
Now it's vanishing 
Everything 
What we might have been 
Only now your prays call my name 
But you won't see again 

Who can change this memory? 

Inside it needs to burn 
Worship by the enemy 
The guilty take their turns 
Watching as it's disappearing 
Shadows all that remain 
Wishes slowly crossing over 
In this parade of pain 

Until my last breath 
You'll never know 
Until you feel the silence 
When I am gone 
Now it's vanishing 
Everything 
What we might have been 
Only now your prays call my name 
But you won't see again

Burning out in the distance you're falling
Starting to fade
Light is condemned to be tied down

Before the weight that pulled you under
Dared you to rise

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Empty is never enough
You keep clawing for what you can't reach
Smothering space filled without any grace
And I can't breathe
Nothing lasts forever
Even the stars will lose their luster
Returning to dust

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Naiad

Written by Angela Heldmann, Torsten Stenzel, Adrian Zagoritis, Tarja Turunen

She hears the distant soft caress

There in the gloom.

Colors surround with tenderness

Guiding her through.

In the forgotten sweet abyss

Another sound

Twilight floating memories

Always without.

Gloaming

There above the surface

An illusion

Reaching down for me.

What lies beneath

Beyond the ocean s door

Tranquil is the kiss

Of the azure rising deep

Sleeping ever more

Naiad s mystery

What lies beneath.

Guarding their immorality

Saints in the sand.

Stranger than beautiful eerie

An ancient land

Circle of sixteen turned to stone

And still they keep

Shimmering crystal promises

One space between.

Breathing the newborn waves.

Kneeling for the sea she became.

Mercy's hiding

I Feel Immortal

Written by Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad, Kerli Koiv, Tarja Turunen

Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no more death to fear
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

I feel immortal
And I am not scared

We Are

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

How cold is the heart
My world is on fire
How deep is the mark
When you leave and your dream turn to water
I let myself feel
I'm wishing for something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

With a smile you move on
Every fear left unspoken
There was hope
Now it's gone
So believe there is love in the open
You just have to let go and turn into something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Break the shade
See your hate
Black flames
No names
Who are you?
Janette said.

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Falling Awake

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

The Archive of Lost Dreams

Written by Tarja Turunen

Far from the light to reach beneath a veil of mist
Countless stories were left to rest in peace

Darkened and calm
The grave uncared
Once a haven filled with hope
The archive of lost dreams

We send our inner fears for the ocean to score
Waiting it takes them all away from the shore
Deepest beliefs from billions of souls
Longing for our wishes to find a way back home

Aah, naiad
The last one in the unknown
The keeper of our written dreams

Aah, promises
None of them were left behind
She blessed them with her kiss
See.

Hear and feel
The miracle of life
Believe the signs and trust you'll stay alive
Descend to find the depth of your heart
Mysterious Naiad
Now the circle's closed forever

Aah, naiad
The archive is gone
We are on our own

Crimson Deep

Written by Angela Heldmann, Bart Hendrickson, Tarja Turunen

Sometimes I see the pulse
Numb I feel,
So unreal.
Blood on my lips I taste the heavy lead.
What can I find behind the mirror,
I'll never know.
Who s the reflection within?

Should I frame for you the other world?

Another world?
I've heard the voices of Elysium.
The scent of a sudden wish,
Never there, everywhere.
Read me the space in-between.

Sharp is the edge of all discovery,
Now I see.
A scar without suffering, impossible.
I'll wait until my last day
With no shame.
Who's to blame?
Shaping the signs left for me.

Come to me
I cried
I need you.
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark.

Far beneath my breath
I'm burning
At my core.
Show me how
Let me see beyond
I will find
My crimson deep

Anteroom Of Death

Written by Kiko Masbaum, Michelle Leonard, Tarja Turunen

Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the Joker, King or Queen?
Place your cards as they're coming
Came to win
Lost everything
Gambling rider pull the strings
Pull them tighter

Let them in

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who's got the keys
And who has not?
Sell your fortune to me
Cause I can still read behind all that
Burn your fingers
Trade a dream
Watch the clock as it's ticking

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Blinded in the dark
I'm touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you're searching
Learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow
Finally

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Naiad

Written by Angela Heldmann, Torsten Stenzel, Adrian Zagoritis, Tarja Turunen

She hears the distant soft caress

There in the gloom.

Colors surround with tenderness

Guiding her through.

In the forgotten sweet abyss

Another sound

Twilight floating memories

Always without.

Gloaming

There above the surface

An illusion

Reaching down for me.

What lies beneath

Beyond the ocean s door

Tranquil is the kiss

Of the azure rising deep

Sleeping ever more

Naiad s mystery

What lies beneath.

Guarding their immorality

Saints in the sand.

Stranger than beautiful eerie

An ancient land

Circle of sixteen turned to stone

And still they keep

Shimmering crystal promises

One space between.

Breathing the newborn waves.

Kneeling for the sea she became.

Dark Star

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Burning out in the distance you're falling
Starting to fade
Light is condemned to be tied down
By gravity close to the end
Do you still remember?
Before the weight that pulled you under
Dared you to rise

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Empty is never enough
You keep clawing for what you can't reach
Smothering space filled without any grace
And I can't breathe
Nothing lasts forever
Even the stars will lose their luster
Returning to dust

Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all, you are a dark star

Underneath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Even in my darkest times
Overcome with worry
Find the comfort in the storm
No reason to be sorry
Look inside for a place to hide
All around the faithless wait full of expectations
They will never see the beauty in the imperfections
The more I show
The less they know

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Every little cut runs deep
Masked in my tomorrow
Bringing wisdom that I need for all the time I borrow
My other side is left behind

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Little Lies

Written by Alex Scholpp, Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Take my faith with an open hand and warm embrace
My confidant
Use my words
Take the good away and leave the worst to sell me out

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Feed the flames
Empty wishes with no room to blame
My sacrifice
Deep inside
There is nothing left to stand behind
But

Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Little lies
Little lies
Nothing is what it seems

Still Of The Night

Written by David Coverdale, John Sykes

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
An' I can't take no more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
An' I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night
In the still of the night

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
An' hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come

In the still of the night
In the cool moonlight
I feel my heart is aching
In the still of the night

In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

Now I just wanna get close to you
An' taste your love so sweet
An' I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night

Rivers Of Lust

Written by Kid Crazy, Johan Westmar, Kristoffer Karlsson, Jessika Lundstrom, Tarja Turunen

Violent hands come at midnight
Hold me down
I can't make a sound
In their arms
Still unwanted
Crave the child
Be forever wiled

Stranger, danger
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Morning sun
Break the shelter
Turn back time
Wash away my crime

Betrayer, slayer
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Found at noon
Clutching still the stone

In For A Kill

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

Where do you go from here?
It's dragging you under
Nothing could be more clear
When you are the hunter
Is that a dream to die for?
A prize

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

You and your twisted minds
It's making us shiver
How can we be so blind
The fear you deliver
It's all a grand illusion
A trick

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

I Feel Immortal

Written by Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad, Kerli Koiv, Tarja Turunen

Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no more death to fear
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

I feel immortal
And I am not scared

We Are

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

How cold is the heart
My world is on fire
How deep is the mark
When you leave and your dream turn to water
I let myself feel
I'm wishing for something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

With a smile you move on
Every fear left unspoken
There was hope
Now it's gone
So believe there is love in the open
You just have to let go and turn into something real

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Break the shade
See your hate
Black flames
No names
Who are you?
Janette said.

We are
We are
Chasing a shadow
We are
We are
Lost in the shame
You try to hide only to reach out
It's too late

Falling Awake

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains

And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling

Montañas de Silencio

Written by Martin Tillman, Tarja Turunen

Vuela tan alto
Como puedas
Nadie debajo
Nadie está detrás
Siempre comienza
Cuando estás sólo

Amor

Siente y encuéntrate en la soledad
Viento
Tú y nadie más

If You Believe

Written by Angela Heldmann, Torsten Stenzel, Adrian Zagoritis, Tarja Turunen

Drifting... words without meaning
Twisting... through the dark concealing
Search again, your reflection lives within.

Shades of the labyrinth
The path lies ahead

If you believe
Truth her name is honesty
Let her shine through your darkest temptation
Hidden deep
In sincerity
With your painted smile
So revealing
Tarnished yet there’s no fear in me
Feeding the flower that dies
Is a ray of light
Is a ray of light

Roaming... colours they were sleeping
Senses... they are never-ending
Find again the beauty in the suffering

Shades of labyrinth
The path lies ahead

If you believe
Truth her name is honesty
Let her shine through your darkest temptation
Hidden deep
In sincerity
With your painted smile
So revealing
Tarnished yet there’s no fear in me
Feeding the flower that dies
Is a ray of light
Is a ray of light

The Crying Moon

Written by Kiko Masbaum, Michelle Leonard, Doug Wimbish, Tarja Turunen

Take all your black arrows
they can not harm no more
fantasies locked up
in your dungeon
take all your black arrows
they can not harm no more
The universe is watching her
an evil curse lies on her heart
a chariot, pulled by crows
trying to tear her hope apart.
Confined in sin

I can hear the moon is crying
as it spells out your name
(spells out your name)
all the stars are up there sighing
saying you come back again
Behind the darkest lullaby
they kept their wishes hidden well
the moon had tied a secret bond
where they could be one again
Confined in sin

I can hear the moon is crying
as it spells out your name
(spells out your name)
all the stars are up there sighing
saying you come back again
Love, stronger than hatred,
stronger than anyone
her heart is gone
take all your black arrows
they can not harm no more
Take all your black arrows
they can not harm no more
Take all your arrows (weapons of hate)

The Good Die Young

Written  by Christian Kolonovits, Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker

You wake up 
Watch the world go 'round 
You shiver 
Feeling upside down 
Your heart is beating fast 
Pumping blood to your head 
Another day to fight 
You have a prayer on your lips under the desert sun 
And a loaded gun 

You remember every word 
That your father said 
Stay out of trouble son 
And be true to yourself 
You'll be working like a dog 
Raise a family 
And life will be alright 
But now it's written in the stars if you'll make it out alive 
Out alive 

The good die young 
There might be no tomorrow 
In god we trust 
Through all this pain and sorrow 
The good die young 
The flame will burn forever 
And no one knows your name 
Bring the boys back home again 

It was a quiet day 

On the streets of hope 
When the bomb went off 
At the side of the road 
Sounds of breaking steel 
An windshield full of blood 
No enemy in sight 
It feels like in a movie scenes are passing by 
It's your life

Anteroom Of Death

Written by Kiko Masbaum, Michelle Leonard, Tarja Turunen

Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the Joker, King or Queen?
Place your cards as they're coming
Came to win
Lost everything
Gambling rider pull the strings
Pull them tighter

Let them in

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who's got the keys
And who has not?
Sell your fortune to me
Cause I can still read behind all that
Burn your fingers
Trade a dream
Watch the clock as it's ticking

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Blinded in the dark
I'm touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you're searching
Learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow
Finally

Come and play another day
Throw your mask away
I don't care what you say
Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Until My Last Breath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Cannot cry it loud enough 
I'm giving up this ghost 
How can I still justify 
When you deny my voice 
In this nothing I'm not allowed 
I just follow alone 
Words as weapons without a sound 
Echoes dying unborn 

Until my last breath 
You'll never know 
Until you feel the silence 
When I am gone 
Now it's vanishing 
Everything 
What we might have been 
Only now your prays call my name 
But you won't see again 

Who can change this memory? 

Inside it needs to burn 
Worship by the enemy 
The guilty take their turns 
Watching as it's disappearing 
Shadows all that remain 
Wishes slowly crossing over 
In this parade of pain 

Until my last breath 
You'll never know 
Until you feel the silence 
When I am gone 
Now it's vanishing 
Everything 
What we might have been 
Only now your prays call my name 
But you won't see again

Underneath

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Even in my darkest times
Overcome with worry
Find the comfort in the storm
No reason to be sorry
Look inside for a place to hide
All around the faithless wait full of expectations
They will never see the beauty in the imperfections
The more I show
The less they know

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Every little cut runs deep
Masked in my tomorrow
Bringing wisdom that I need for all the time I borrow
My other side is left behind

Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

But

Rivers Of Lust

Written by Kid Crazy, Johan Westmar, Kristoffer Karlsson, Jessika Lundstrom, Tarja Turunen

Violent hands come at midnight
Hold me down
I can't make a sound
In their arms
Still unwanted
Crave the child
Be forever wiled

Stranger, danger
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Morning sun
Break the shelter
Turn back time
Wash away my crime

Betrayer, slayer
Release me

Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Found at noon
Clutching still the stone

In For A Kill

Written by Mattias Lindblom, Anders Wollbeck, Tarja Turunen

Where do you go from here?
It's dragging you under
Nothing could be more clear
When you are the hunter
Is that a dream to die for?
A prize

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

You and your twisted minds
It's making us shiver
How can we be so blind
The fear you deliver
It's all a grand illusion
A trick

You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

I Feel Immortal

Written by Lindy Robbins, Toby Gad, Kerli Koiv, Tarja Turunen

Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no more death to fear
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

I feel immortal
And I am not scared

Falling Awake

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

The Archive of Lost Dreams

Written by Tarja Turunen

Far from the light to reach beneath a veil of mist
Countless stories were left to rest in peace

Darkened and calm
The grave uncared
Once a haven filled with hope
The archive of lost dreams

We send our inner fears for the ocean to score
Waiting it takes them all away from the shore
Deepest beliefs from billions of souls
Longing for our wishes to find a way back home

Aah, naiad
The last one in the unknown
The keeper of our written dreams

Aah, promises
None of them were left behind
She blessed them with her kiss
See.

Hear and feel
The miracle of life
Believe the signs and trust you'll stay alive
Descend to find the depth of your heart
Mysterious Naiad
Now the circle's closed forever

Aah, naiad
The archive is gone
We are on our own

Crimson Deep

Written by Angela Heldmann, Bart Hendrickson, Tarja Turunen

Sometimes I see the pulse
Numb I feel,
So unreal.
Blood on my lips I taste the heavy lead.
What can I find behind the mirror,
I'll never know.
Who s the reflection within?

Should I frame for you the other world?

Another world?
I've heard the voices of Elysium.
The scent of a sudden wish,
Never there, everywhere.
Read me the space in-between.

Sharp is the edge of all discovery,
Now I see.
A scar without suffering, impossible.
I'll wait until my last day
With no shame.
Who's to blame?
Shaping the signs left for me.

Come to me
I cried
I need you.
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark.

Far beneath my breath
I'm burning
At my core.
Show me how
Let me see beyond
I will find
My crimson deep
