Track Name: Coming Back To Life
Within every lie
Behind every lie, the truth needs to be found
But the answers never quite so clear
What is to believe, my own burden to bear

I tried to recall the last time I laid my eyes on you
But the image fades away every time I try
Fades away every time I try

I never had to say goodbye to so many things
Kill the past, a new life to begin
I tried to find a meaning for it all
Tell me where you were when it started to fall

I try to recall when I laid my eyes on you
But the image fades away every time that I close my eyes

I believe
That somewhere down the road I’ll see your smile
One moment, past and present reunited
Lullaby, a song to calm the child that sleeps within
Let the melody bring me back to life

The stranger I’ve become
Stranded from the things I’ve known
Nothing more to make me understand
A wheel that turns on itself
Repeating the same mistakes
Never-ending

Now the light begins to shine
For all of us to see it
Brings the nightmare to an ending
Or is that only an illusion?

For years, I’ve walked this lonely journey
On my knees, I begged for something new ahead
I’m starting to believe
Time has come for me to stand
Head up high

I believe
That somewhere down the road I’ll see your smile
One moment, past and present reunited
Lullaby, a song to calm the child that sleeps within
Let the melody bring me back to life
Coming back to life

Oh, do you care?
Are you never feeling lonely?
Once again, feel the rain cleaning all I’ve become
And I know it’s not the end of the world
My home is far but I’ll keep walking
On the way to my own paradise
And I hope I’ll find you
Hope I’ll see you there
And I’ll try again
To remember before it fades away
Track Name: The Grandeur Of It All
The more you try
The less you’re living your existence
Something deep inside of you
It’s waiting to arise
Just cut the ties that still bind you to your old self
Now it’s time to go beyond your own horizon

Whatever you find
It has been there all along
Into your mind
The time is now for you to be
Whatever you see
Anything you ever wanted to become
It is the grandeur of it all


Lose your mind
Into your own creation
The fears you have
A dream to fully understand
The show is yours
Day-to-day to reach the finale
Now that you know that it’s meant to be
Just fly away

Whatever you find
It has been there all along
Into your mind
The time is now for you to be
Whatever you see
Anything you ever wanted to become
You are the grandeur of it all

Who’ll sing the song of the people
We don’t hear anymore?
Who will even try?
Is the story almost coming to a close?
You have to write an ending that you will like



Some will fall
But we’ll carry on forevermore
The price to pay
Is better than to lose everything
The sacrifice is not in vain
When the sun will light our face
From the clouds clearing away
Not so long ago, this day was just a fantasy
Not so long ago
The dream we had was just a fantasy


Whatever you find
It has been there all along
Into your mind
The time is now for you to be
Whatever you see
Anything you ever wanted to become
You are the grandeur of it all
Track Name: From The Above And To The Stars
What do you expect to see when the light is fading?
Do you find yourself staring above
And wondering why we have come to believe?

The answers are in the sky
If you keep looking
It’s a matter of time
Until it strikes you down

Maybe a part of us wants to be something greater
Questions remain

From the above and to the stars
I’ll dream forevermore
Somewhere beyond the universe
A mystery to see
A presence over me tells me to let it go
From the above I’ll be dreaming forevermore
From the above and to the stars
I’ll dream forevermore
Somewhere beyond the universe
Possible scenery
A presence over me tells me to let it go
From the above I’ll be dreaming forevermore

Citizens of the stars heed the call
The mysteries of the signs to understand
Whole universe to hold, ourselves to mend
The truth is out there

Will we find our way?
Arcane galaxy

Am I too blind to believe
What I feel in the skies?
Rays of light unfold
Sending all the poets to the stars



From the above and to the stars
I’ll dream forevermore
Somewhere beyond the universe
A mystery to see
A presence over me tells me to let it go
From the above I’ll be dreaming forevermore
From the above and to the stars
I’ll dream forevermore
Somewhere beyond the universe
Possible scenery
A presence over me tells me to let it go
From the above I’ll be dreaming forevermore

Maybe they will come
From the great unknown
Unfolding before us
To the confines of the real
It has begun, can’t you hear the calling?

Farewell, it’s time to fly
Away from all the lies
Until it never comes back
Embrace the light of Orion
Seer of a distant prophecy
The truth is out there

From the above and to the stars
I will dream forevermore
Somewhere beyond this universe
A mystery to see
The dream I have is not a fantasy
Track Name: Red Lady
Life is like a game
And you better learn to play
Planning every move
That's what they say
But still the chest of luck
Could maybe be opened someday
I thought I found the key
When you lady came to me

Bloody dress, a lust call
For any man to crawl
The flawless touch of that skin
Feel the fever is rising
I tried to keep it cool
But fallen like a fool
Then I knew to bet everything on you

Sometimes you're divided
And you don't know what to do
Wait for another hand or bluff a few
When god itself put
Such a princess on your way
Forget all your promises
You know they'll drift away
If you're to lose it all
Isn't it better to follow your heart?
Live against the odds
make your own rules
And never let the time take decisions for you


The road we’re on is clear as far as I can see
I’m under your spell
And anyone could tell
We could rule the world
This emotion can’t be wrong
To the other end of time
The sky is mine tonight
A lifetime to spend
The wind whispers your name
As I open my eyes to a new day


But beware to get lost in that land of wonders
Don't lose of sight the wolf that comes from behind
Thin is the line
Between trust and being blinded
When you surrender
To the sweet melody
That she wants you to see
Such fallacy

As far as I can remember the pain
The first time I doubted, your smile was a lie
As the cards were falling, my mind was racing
Did I make a mistake or was it just a dream?

Then I looked into your eyes for the very last time
I knew my troubles had just begun
On my knees, I begged for the truth
When I asked
Are you betraying me?

The way you had to make me believe
Each and every words you spoke to me
You could have made a flame beg for water
Set a rock on fire

You were just like a blue eyed spider
Your dress dyed with the blood of your lovers
Of course I could have read between the lines
But what’s to doubt when all is smoke and mirrors

And I got caught into your web
I've bet my life on you
But that was part of your plan
I threw the cards down on the floor
As the wolf became a king
I loved you just too much to see
You were betraying me

I will survive the end of it
I will remember the time we had
If I am strong enough to let it go
I am on the run and nobody is stopping me
What’s to worry?
Just save your pride and let it go away
No more holding back what I am
Don’t need no crystal ball to see it all
Anymore
