Track Name: Cigarettes on the Floor Mat
Closed in my bedroom
And I'm alone
Burning like hell
Cigarettes on the floor mat
Clothes on the bedroom floor
And I know
I'm fooling myself that you're here
Close by

- Everything that you said lost its meaning
Every word, every thought burns to nothing at all
- Anything you might say just spreads your ashes all around me
- Everything that you scarred me with
I don't know if it is here anymore

I guaranteed that I'd make it through
I needed time to get over you
But since time seems to be running out
I'm rushing things by lying low

Now, when I see this some other way
I try to fix it but then I say, fool
You wrecked my score - be
Off with you
Cause you don't know what you do

Everything that I felt wasn't worth it
Cigarettes on the floor mat is all, anymore
How can I heal my heart while my heartbeat
Is skipping beats
For all the days I've lost
Wasting precious time
Running after you

I guarantee you won't make it through
You had a way to stick up for you
But it is making you lose your head
So I will beat you to the draw

You may be looking the other way
But I am able to see right through you
What’s in store? - I'm
Done with you
You really know that it's true
Track Name: Pandia
They gather
Beneath your light

Mortal druids
They ponder
Asking way

Daughter of the moon

Will you share this
Will you share with us your knowledge

Where can we find all the answers
Will you-will you respond if you have them
Will you respond?

Pandia
Tell me what is going on
Is it true that this world is burning
We've done wrong and our sins
Seem to flood and overflow this earth
Is it late, or there's still some hope for us

To change things
And make them right
What sacrifice

What is the price
We need to pay in order
To restore all the order
Track Name: I've Been Haunted
Hideous content
In my mind all night
I've been thinking
Devising ways to get even
With you this time
Closed feelings
But the door open wide
I've been waiting
For this shadow to unfold and capture
All those inner burning flames

All this time
I've been haunted by you
I don't know if this
Is the way to get over you
It is crystal clear
That you don't want anything to do
With me anymore
So I've got to see this through

Hideous content
And a door open wide
You've been waiting but
My own devices fail me
My own devices fall

All this time
I've been haunted by you
I don't think that this
Is the way to get over you
It is crystal clear
That you don't want anything to do
With me anymore
So I've got to see this through

With everything that's happened, I know that
This ain't a true escape
I need to leave it behind - I need to move on
Before it is too late
Track Name: Ding Dong
Ding dong
You rang the bell of my kingdom
You came here threatening my freedom
And every little thread I keep of fairytale (x2)
And since they planned it for us
I’ve got to change the chorus
I need to keep this up for me
 
I’ve got to find if this isn’t true, tonight
I need to lift the darkness behind your light and I,
I’ve got to find if this isn’t you, tonight
I miss the clear state of my mind; I'll do this for me
 
I’ve got to find what this is about, tonight
I need to shift the wrongs and just make them right, somehow
I’ve got to find the red and the blue, tonight
I miss the purple hues of my kind; I'll do this, you’ll see
 
…this, the place I cannot miss
The fortress of my dreams
With its towers high
On its bastions they lay
Yearnings made of clay
Memories made by gleams
This place I cannot lose
This bridge I cross each day
To the castle of my hopes
When it darkens it shines
When it dawns it signs
Its promises to stay

Ding dong
You rang the bell of my kingdom
You came here threatening my freedom
And every little thread I keep of fairytale (x2)
And since they planned it for us
I’ve got to change the chorus
I've got to bring this to an end
Track Name: Better to Know
The thoughts that lingered in my mind
I had to change to words
I wished they’d stayed inside of me but
now they fly like birds
They run away and make you see
They make you realize
That even I get scared sometimes
and tears can fill my eyes

Maybe you’ve hoped that I was strong
and I could never break
But there are some things in this life
that even I can’t take
But there’s no need for you to try
to make everything right
I’ve lost my will, my courage and strength and
I’m giving up this fight

For you shall hear these worries no more
I’ll shut the window and lock the door
I’ll put a chain and break the key
And you will never set me free
I chose this cage over freedom any day
It’s much more honest to see it this way
It’s better to know that you’re not free
than pretend you’ re something that you cannot be
And you shall hear these worries no more
I’ll shut the window and lock the door
I’ll put a chain and break the key
And you will never set me free
I’d choose this cage over freedom any day
It’s much more honest to see it this way
It’s better to know that you’re not free
than to pretend that you are something you cannot be
Track Name: Everything's Fine
Does it make you sad
to lose your faith again
to lose your everything
and live in oceans

Does it bring you down
from where you had been flying
and now you start the lyin’
and hide emotions

Does it feel so bad
that makes you curl within
and burn your every dream
that kept you alive

Do you erase it all
those things that held your chains
No ashes, no remains
for whom to strive

Now you can play your role
You’re stronger than before
They’ll think it’s fine
Everything’s fine

Do you wish you had
another chance to chose
so you could never lose
your favorite sight

Do you change your mind
and fall asleep alone
you turn your heart to stone
and win the fight

Does it hurt so bad
that makes you close inside
you block your tears and hide
your true emotions
Track Name: Puppeteer I
On the desert sand
the flakes of dune remain
Hands of doom and reign
exterminate the land
Cones of trees aside
the darkened veils unfold
The maiden arms of cold
beneath the sky collide

Dangerous of dreams
upon the brisk of dawn
As guilty as it seems
it’s nothing but a pawn
The real source of pain
is just a puppeteer
who lingers in the rain
to draw the foolish near

On the perished grave
the writing fades away
The token of a ray
for which the witches crave
Lurking in the night
to swallow in the pleasure
of finding all the treasure
that’s hidden out of sight
Track Name: Stupid Song
Talking it through
Seems to be going wrong
I get distracted
Just listening to the song
That keeps on playing
And I can’t hear no more
The things you’re saying
I’m somewhere long ago

You see me smile
Images in my brain
I may seem stupid
Maybe it’s cupid
Doing his tricks again
We’re not in the same place
We used to be back then
I want to hold you
You want to be my friend

It’s getting late
I must be going home
Don’t bother standing
Please understand me
I need to walk it off
I’ll be just fine
I have this stupid song
To keep me smiling
When shit like that go wrong
