Track Name: Sorcerer
Sorcerer, sorcerer, wicked, bent, and old
Sorcerer, sorcerer, your tower dark and cold
Sorcerer, sorcerer, up there in the sky
Sorcerer, sorcerer, believer, weaving lies

Potions brewing, Sacrifice! Devil's grip, unholy rites!
Listen to your heart, I see you solely as you once were

Sorcerer, you once were a child, not a man
Sorcerer, thirsts for power any way he can
Sorcerer, sorcerer, crooked, spent, and old
Locked inside your tower, as the mystery unfolds

Potions brewing, Sacrifice! Devil’s grip, unholy rites!
Listen to your heart, I see you solely as you once were

Blame it all on happenstance, your thoughts were warped, you had a chance
Listen to your soul, I see you hardly as you once were
Blame it on society, but point your finger quietly
Listen to my heart, I see your soul as you really are!

Blame it all on happenstance, your thoughts were warped, you had a chance
Listen to your soul, I see you hardly as you once were
Blame it on society, but point your finger quietly
Listen to my heart, I see your soul as you really are!
Track Name: The Blind Prince
I can see where you go
I know all that you know
Trust me and close your eyes

Blind Prince sees through eyes of others
Knows all of your dark desires
Trust me and close your mind

Fleeing from the life that you once knew
Taking every chance to fight
I am the one who is not blind

All the world's underwater if you don't wake up
Turn the people on each other with his evil thoughts
Though my eyes are drawn across the sun and moon and stars
Does not mean that I can see, yeah, he knows where you are!
Track Name: Never Leave
I saw an angel underneath the stars tonight
Or maybe it was just a blinding silver light
She knew a way to leave the world and cross the
Atmosphere, crystal clear
If I took her hand

I saw an angel and I know that you were there
Or maybe it was just your shining auburn hair
She turned around and without speaking she said
“Follow me, And you'll see
To the end of the world”

Carry on / Pass through your life
Stop to breathe / Take in the sights
Right or wrong / It matters not
Never Leave / Without a thought

I saw an angel in your moonlit, piercing gaze
Or maybe it was just an opalescent haze
She pulled me through the door and I knew that my
Life had changed, Turn the page
And she was gone
Track Name: Cosmo
Once upon an evening, just before the dusk fell on the streets
Chance brought Cosmo to the shop where the mirror is staring back at him
Occupied his mind, though he tried to let it go
And go home alone!

Back into the storefront, withered man expecting his return
Lies to maintain sanity, still the mirror is staring back at him
Occupied her mind, though she tried, to let it go!
And wake up alone!

Cosmo looked in the mirror
That’s where he saw her every night
There she stood before him, though she never met his eyes
She’s always dressed in white

The room floods with pale moonlight; Her eyes they open wide
Princess you must leave this place before your lover dies
She rushes out to meet him, through thunder, wind and rain
Cosmo broke his mirror, and will not live again!
Track Name: Somehow
Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a brick wall
And I waited there
Tell me anything that you want, it might come to you

Somehow I woke up, and you were standing by my side
And I waited there
Tell me everything that you know, and it might be true

Stars align, but another hero dies
Time doesn't matter anymore

Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a brick wall
And I waited there
Waited endlessly, and then I knew
I’d be alright without you
Track Name: Innocent Hands
Walk to the edge of the world
Blame falls on innocent hands
Guilt weighs down thoughts of the fallen
Help me clear my clouded mind

Sleep until time does not matter
Blame falls on innocent hands
Fool me and your heart will shatter
Don't let yourself fall from grace

Right the wrongs of the fallen
Past shall warp to now
Swallow up our world
Within your gaping maw

Blame falls on innocent hands
Blame falls on innocent hands
Blame falls on innocent hands
Blame falls on innocent hands
Track Name: Last Ride of the Ancients
None of us knew where they had come from
But somehow we all knew why they were here
Someday you too will know the story
And pass it on to generations come

Why had they not prepared to face us
They simply did not have man’s will to live
Or had they simply given up all hope
To give their lives before they turn to dust

Winds! They ride the ancient winds!
Oh how those winds did sing!
Storms! They ride the blackened storms!
Oh how those storms did crash!

Dance! The men all dance!
They cannot shout!
Their lips are sealed forever in a silent scream
In a violent dream of what’s to come

Ancients! Changes! Seasons!
Reason with yourselves before you’re lost
Organize your thoughts before you change your mind
Forever is quite lonely, and a long, long time

None of us knew where they had come from
But somehow we all knew why they were here
Someday you too will know the story
And then it won’t matter much at all!
Track Name: The Vision
I creep into the bog
Through the mists I wander
Starlight shrouded by fog
Betwixt the wild trees I wander

I sight a ghostly clearing
Shrouded by eerie light
I sit down, spent and weary
So that i may rest for the night

And then I see her behind a smoky veil
She floats before me clear as day
Is this the horror that I've heard of in a tale?
Has she come to take me away?

Return to the realm of sleep
Dreams foreshadow things to come
Although I am tired and weak
I arise to the first rays of the sun
And I fear that I am not the only one
Track Name: The Long-Nosed Wiseman
I am stopped as I ride down the road
By a man stoop’d in his years
Behind his white hair and his long, crooked nose
His gaze speaks to me of his fears
His lips do not move, his eyes do not blink
His robes do not sway in the breeze
Twould be strange in a dream to be met
By a man bent and wise such as he!

He knows what I have just done
He knows where I have just been
He tells me of things I don't want to believe
Of that cold, damp, evil scene.
I am ashamed of myself
Conscience disappeared
Why has this happened, what will I do?
Could this be what I feared?

But I am stronger than this
I know the power that I hold
In a day I'll return, and take back my land
And a new age will unfold

Wasted... Waste away, you should
Tell him... You'd tell him if you could
Birthright... You were born to rule
Sellout... You chose the path of a fool
