Track Name: Seven Seals
shaded stretches of fortune, never leaving the side of the roads
unseen by most of the travelers, who carry their gold
the bird that sings after midnight, although it’s afraid of he dark
holds a mirror to mankind, but teaches us not to lose heart

and we grow older, older, older

hovering over the fiery fields
we try not to burn in the atmosphere
weary and sick of all the hate we feel
for all that’s love is under seven seals
under seven seals
under seven seals

solitary companions, hunting for life they don’t know
careless they fall through the quicksand, to hell and below
lovely as flowers in may are, and lonely as we are tonight
the world holds a fate for the living, that we can’t deny

and we grow older, older, older

hovering over the fiery fields
we try not to burn in the atmosphere
weary and sick of all the hate we feel
for all that’s love is under seven seals
under seven seals
under seven seals

shaded stretches of fortune, never leaving the side of the roads
unseen by most of the travelers, who carry their gold
Track Name: Down in the Woods
in the first light of early spring
her beauty had caught his eye
she was wandering all by herself
down in the woods she cried

lord, oh lord, please send me someone
cause I can’t see the colors no more

then in late summer he’d seen her no more
and searched every place that he knew
but all he found was a little blue flower
down in the woods it grew

love, oh love, let it be you
it’s all that I want, all I want is you
love, oh love, let it be you
it’s all that I want, all I want is you
Track Name: Creatures
on their trail up to the sky
creatures wander through the night on their own
and share only fear of the dark
when the god who they pray to is gone

for the selfish there’s a law
that will tear them all apart into fire
to burn in the ashes of hell
when they don’t deserve well they shall die

oh when the devil’s around
no one dares make a sound
so he won’t drag us down
oh when we look to the sky
mind the vultures up high
for in time they’ll come down

in a race for dreams in gold
all the creatures running cold from inside
and only know love when they’ve lost
what they had in a tomb for their soul

then at last they’re praying come down my god
forgive me my sins and embrace me again

oh now the racing is done
and nobody has won
by the dawn of the sun
and the children they learn
from the creatures and burn
in the same stupid run

oh come down my god
forgive me my sins and embrace me again
Track Name: City of Dreams
the city of our dreams turns the cold reality
into a flooded place to hide in the blurry sweet of lights
men gather in the dark speak in codes and act bizarre
and the endless streets they build are deceits to chain your will

the city’s only aim is to bring us under
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun

the city of our dreams stops the sun from bursting in
and dust is all we breath when the rain is never seen
as dazed as we may be we never speak of what we see
the hooded give us lead so we follow and believe

the city’s only aim is to bring us under
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun

the glassy palisades rise high without a gate
and light shines down in red when the sky is brightly led
but in the atmosphere of steam there’s lovelyness unseen
a bird that’s flying free from control and harmony

the city’s only aim is to bring us under
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun

the city’s only aim is to bring us under
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun
still a blind man tells me that he’s only here for fun
Track Name: Peace of Mind
when all of the living is hard now
in your eyes
and selling your soul to the evil
is the best that you can do
tell me would you stand
when they take you from her hand
would it tear your heart in two
if she leaves before you do

and waiting for peace
waiting for peace of mind
you struggle to keep
keep your head up high
and the world seems a mess
when you look at it sometimes
yeah the world seems a mess
when you look at it sometimes

moments are freezing in silence
that you try hard to push away
but time keeps on dripping like water
and the setting sun’s on the way
tell me would you stand
when they take you from her hand
will break your only hope
if they tell you she won’t come home

and waiting for peace
waiting for peace of mind
you struggle to keep
keep your head up high
and the world seems a mess
when you look at it sometimes
yeah the world seems a mess
when you look at it sometimes

and waiting for peace
waiting for peace of mind
you struggle to keep
keep your head up high
and the world seems a mess
when you look at it sometimes
yeah the world seems a mess
when you look at it sometimes
