Lyrics:

1. Nothing Stands In Our Way

Fear

We’re still struggling
Halfway through this journey
Our eyes are burning but we’re not slowing down
I wish we could have all the time in the world
But we have come too far
To give up who we are

We fear nothing

LIFE LONG
ROAD BLOCKS
HIGH WALLS
TEARDROPS
NOTHING
STANDS IN OUR WAY

BLOOD STAINED
STOCK CRASH
MISTAKES
HEART BREAKS
NOTHING STANDS IN OUR WAY

We’re still running
We are not afraid the thrill is on
Speed up without any brakes
Oh no
‘Cause sometimes we still have to hit the wall
To see things that are right before our eyes

We fear nothing

We fear nothing

LIFE LONG
ROAD BLOCKS
HIGH WALLS
TEARDROPS
NOTHING
STANDS IN OUR WAY

BLOOD STAINED
STOCK CRASH
MISTAKES
HEART BREAKS
NOTHING STANDS IN OUR WAY

We fear nothing
We fear nothing
Now that we’ve come so far
Do you still remember our dreams
The need to have it all?
Don’t give up
I feel we are almost there

LIFE LONG
ROAD BLOCKS
HIGH WALLS
TEARDROPS
NOTHING
STANDS IN OUR WAY

BLOOD STAINED
STOCK CRASH
MISTAKES
HEART BREAKS
NOTHING STANDS IN OUR WAY

That’s our way

2. Zombies

Down on my knees
Feeling lost I look around
Another day I can see
My life crashing to the ground

Now that the time is ripe for change
None of the lies that I’ve been told
None of them lying preachers
Cannot curse me anymore

Our lost souls will rise above as one

We are alone
We are the night
We are the ghosts that come to life
We will scare away reality
When walls are falling down

We are alone
We aren’t blind
We see the shadows from inside
We will run away and hide
When the new dawn is breaking

(Down)

Down in the deep
It has just begun to crawl
It’s the life I can’t live
In a place I don’t belong

Now that the time is ripe for change
None of the lies that I’ve been told
None of them lying preachers
Cannot curse me anymore

Our lost souls will rise above as one

We are alone
We are the night
We are the ghosts that come to life
We will scare away reality
When walls are falling down

We are alone
We aren’t blind
We see the shadows from inside
We will run away and hide
When the new dawn is breaking

(down)

*

We are the ghosts that come to life
To see the shadows from inside
We will scare away reality
When walls are falling down

We are alone
We are the night
We are the ghosts that come to life
We are alone
We aren’t blind
We will run away and hide

We are alone
We are the night
We are the ghosts that come to life
We will scare away reality
When walls are falling down

(When walls are falling down)

We are alone
We aren’t blind
We see the shadows from inside
We will run away and hide
When the new dawn is breaking

(Down)

3. Hostage To The Light

In the silence
The whistling gets louder in my ears
(Whisper in my ears)
The wind is blowing stronger
It’s hard to keep my feet upon the ground
‘Cause I’m ready to fly

Now

This is who you are
Angel without wings
Sinner in disguise
Don’t wonder why
You have never tried to believe in yourself
Become a hostage to the light

In this light
I’m feeling safe
So calm and unafraid
A bird without a cage
And now
I have to take these chances
Won’t take off without jumping off the edge
‘Cause I’m ready to fly

Now

This is who you are
Angel without wings
Sinner in disguise
Don’t wonder why
You have never tried to believe in yourself
Become a hostage to the light

I’m a hero in the bright light
In this world of false illusions in my head
I’m a zero in the dark night
I’m a prisoner
I’m hostage to the light

Now

This is who you are
Angel without wings
Sinner in disguise
Don’t wonder why
You have never tried to believe in yourself
Become a hostage to the light

A world of false illusions in my head
Deep inside my head, deep inside my head
A world of false illusions in my head
Deep inside my head, deep inside my head

4. Victims

Stumbling I almost fall
Walking blind in this decay
It’s sending shivers down my spine again

Can’t be running for our lives
We’re still fighting for our land
Fight for something we don’t understand

We need to free ourselves now
Then become
More human

We will not in stand in line
Victims have fallen in vain
Frozen hearts
Empty Eyes
We’ve seen it all before

We will not in stand in line
Victims have fallen in vain
Mother’s tears
Vicious Eyes
We’ve seen it all before

Suddenly I am on my own
I got lost along the way
I feel cold but I keep the fire in me

But despite all broken dreams
We’re still planning our defence
Against something we don’t want to be

We need to free ourselves now
Then become
Just human

We will not in stand in line
Victims have fallen in vain
Frozen hearts
Empty Eyes
We’ve seen it all before

We will not in stand in line
Victims have fallen in vain
Mother’s tears
Vicious eyes
We’ve seen it all before

People told I was weak
I told them I’ll never quit
I will never quit
I’ll never

Never break me down
Never break me down again

We need to free ourselves now
Then become
Just human

We will not in stand in line
Victims have fallen in vain
Frozen hearts
Empty Eyes
We’ve seen it all before

We will not in stand in line
Victims have fallen in vain
Mother’s tears
Vicious eyes
We’ve seen it all before

I don’t want to hear no more
The rotten lies I heard before
Never break me down again
I cannot burn inside this hell

Vengeance
I think it’s taking over me

Vengeance
You’ll never run away from me

5. Die & Rise

 

Die

Werewolf in the night life
You won’t believe your eyes
Blonde hair in the red light
She’s getting down
Getting down

She’ll never turn me down
Put another stake into my heart
There’s evil in her eyes
I cheated death
And I came back alive

Die and Rise
And take a bite of life

Die and Rise
With no regrets

Die

Black queen in the mirror
She’s putting me aside
One dose of the white light
I am shutting out
Shutting out

I wanna wake you up
In the middle of a perfect dream
Adrenaline inside
I cheated death
And I came back alive

Die and Rise
And take a bite of life

Die and Rise
With no regrets

Risorgerò in ogni momento poichè
so che la vita si trasmuterà

Die and Rise
And take a bite of Life

Die and Rise
With no regrets

Die and Rise
And take a bite of Life

Die and Rise
With no regrets

6. I Forgive (But I Won't Forget Your Name)

 You know I’ve been hurt before
But you didn’t really care
Had enough of empty words
I’m not here to stay.

I cannot do with you anymore
Once again you’ve crossed the line
And you’re underestimating me again.

I forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
All the damages that you’ve done
I want to see you pay

‘Cause I will forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
You will pay for all that you’ve done

When I put my trust in you
You just threw it all away
All the pain you’ve put me through
You’re not here to stay

And you’re underestimating me again
You get what you’ve beginning.

Let it rain
Let it rain
Let it rain into my heart

I’ll wash away the stains
That you left behind

Let it rain
Let it rain
Let it rain into my heart

Into my heart

I forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
All the damages that you’ve done
I want to see you pay.

‘Cause I will forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
You will pay for all that you’ve done

I forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
All the damages that you’ve done
I want to see you pay.

‘Cause I will forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
You will pay for all that you’ve done

I forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
All the damages that you’ve done
I want to see you pay.

‘Cause I will forgive the ones who hurt me
But I’ll not forget your name
You will pay for all that you’ve done

All that you have done

7. Cybersleep

 
(As the time and space are moving
Another gate is closing
Here I feel safe
And I don’t want to go back to my world)

Cyber sleep feels so real
Memory cut to shape
Miracles live inside the dream
But when I close my eyes and everything feels good
It won’t be long until illusions will come true

Take me there
Just take my hand
And help me fly
Try to understand

Locked away the secrets deep inside of me
I chose to live in here
Lost sight of what is real
Subconscious lies
Dream within a dream
But I’m not afraid of this
Illusion
Still inside my head
My head

Take me there
Just take my hand
And help me fly
Try to understand

Take me there
Just take my hand
And help me fly
Try to understand

A life of deception
To walk away from here
Why don’t you follow me
I’ll show you how it feels

Subconscious lies
Dream within a dream
But I’m not afraid of this
Illusion
Still inside my head
My head

Take me there
Just take my hand
And help me fly
Try to understand

Take me there
Just take my hand
And help me fly
Try to understand

(As the time and space are moving
Another gate is closing
Here I feel safe
And I don’t want to go back to my world)

8. Infection

 

(It’s coming down)

I’m in your blood
And like a poison in your veins
And small amounts I’m killing you slowly

(Tell me why)

You cannot face me when I’m staring straight at you
You cannot hide ’cause I will haunt you

We’re falling down into a grave
When all the trust has gone away
Now take this life
And pull the trigger
Stop my pain

It’s crashing down
The sound of thunder
The lightning strikes and makes me blind
You drag me down and pull me under
Until you see me drown

(Bring me down)

Just like a drug I slow you down and make you numb
I got you high
I laid you so low

(I cannot move)
You’re paralyzed with all my strength
I’m hurting you,
You sleep awake
It’s like a bad dream

We’re falling down into a grave
When all the trust has gone away
Now take this life
And pull the trigger
Stop my pain

It’s crashing down
The sound of thunder
The lightning strikes and makes me blind
You drag me down and pull me under
And spread around like a deadly infection

It’s crashing down
The sound of thunder
The lightning strikes and makes me blind
You drag me down and pull me under
Until you see me drown

It’s crashing down the sound of thunder
The lightning strikes and makes me blind
You drag me down and pull me under
Until you see me drown

Drag me down
Drag me down and pull me under
Drag me down
Drag me down until you see me drown

9. I Burn In You

 
Slowly fading
Burnt like fire in a pyre
Life will disappear with you
And now
All I hear is silence
Somehow
All I wish for
Faded in the dark

I burn with you
We’ll see it through
I burn in you
It will never be the same as it was before

It’s true
We’ll see it through
I burn in you
But we’ll never be the same as we were before

And now
Feel the heat around me
See the blaze that burns me
All of this is tearing me apart

I burn with you
We’ll see it through
I burn in you
It will never be the same as it was before

It’s true
We’ll see it through
I burn in you
But we’ll never be the same as we were before

Burning the pyre
Take me in your arms
And start to burn
Yearning for life
Take me in your arms
And start to burn
Never ending darkness
Yearning for life

I burn with you
We’ll see it through
I burn in you
It will never be the same as it was before

It’s true
We’ll see it through
I burn in you
But we’ll never be the same as we were before

10. In The End I Feel Alive

 
Silence in the room
But I still hear your voice
I’ve been awake all night
My heart is aching for you

Blinded by the light
I cannot see the answers
Here with open arms
My heart is waiting for you

How much this is gonna hurt?
You promise you’ll never tell a lie
Don’t tell me it’s over
Even in the end I feel alive

I did trust your words
But I don’t trust your actions
Walk on broken glass
The chemical reaction

The chemical reaction

How much this is gonna hurt?
You promise you’ll never tell a lie
Don’t tell me it’s over
Even in the end I feel alive

Burn baby
Burn baby

I will shut the door and hide the key

Burn baby
Burn baby

Burn baby
Burn baby

Give you a taste of your own medicine

Burn baby
Burn baby

Time to break free

How much this is gonna hurt?
You promise you’ll never tell a lie
Don’t tell me it’s over
Even in the end I feel alive

I’m alive
I’m alive

11. One Cold Day

 
Sometimes the sun shines cold
The road is lonely as I walk alone
In the sky the clouds are racing fast
It’s becoming so cold outside

Time has come
Time has come

And the clouds gather above me
And the clouds gather above me

As I stand in the rain of this cold day
Tears are the words when I cannot confess the pain
Time will heal
But I don’t want to feel

Sometimes it’s hard to let go
It’s hard to move along the scars of life
Memories are blooming in the gloom
As I’m feeling so cold inside

Time has come
Time has come

And the clouds gather above me
And the clouds gather above me

As I stand in the rain of this cold day
Tears are the words when I cannot confess the pain
Time will heal
But I don’t want to feel

Cry in the rain
Release the pain

Cry in the rain
Release the pain

So cry now
Cry now and let it go
Cry now
Cry now and let it go
Cry now
Cry now and let it go
Cry now
Cry now
