Track Name: Awakening
I’m lying here
Under these trees
I am awake
The fear that seized
me is gone: the sun appears

Surrounding heat
After these years
No troubles left
Wiped away my tears
They are gone, for this day - gone
I hope that the pain will not return again
Track Name: The Deep Forest
Every dream that I dream
Is leading me back to that place
I can imagine the scene
Can see the pain in your blank face

When I’m awake I am strong
I can control my thoughts
But in my dreams I am fragile
I can’t take control

The reason why I end up here all night
is crystal clear: your god damn suicide
Why have you left without a last good bye
I'm here without you and only you know the reason why

How can I subscribe these questions in my mind
Will I ever find any way out
I am afraid all alone, cause I can't hear no sound
No sound at all, the silence is killing me
And I – I can't refrain
From all these pictures in my head – how you’ve been found
And still I hear no sound

Now I can sense the silence that you sought
In this dark forrest of feelings I am caught
The bony boughs where no bird cares to sing
Are swallowed up by darkness – the bringer of a deadly undertaking

How can I subscribe these questions in my mind
Will I ever find any way out
I am afraid all alone, cause I can't hear no sound
No sound at all, the silence is killing me
And I – I can't refrain
From all these pictures in my head – how you’ve been found
And still I hear no sound

(Voice of Fear):
Who woke me up
Fear and sickness is what you get
You should better stop
I’m growing with your heartbeat
Finally awake again
Got lots of work to do
Do you sense my breath
I am the fear within you

(Lost Person):
I thought I could forget what happened but
This evil voice is coming closer
I wish that I could hide, but I cannot
What do you want from me

(Voice of Fear):
You can’t resist me
And won’t get out of here
Oooaaah, by the way
Let’s come to the point
It is you I want
I’ll crush you from within
I am a rogue
And not your dreamcatcher

(Lost Person):
I wish I could have been there at that day
I wish I could have had the chance to cry
But now these nightmares never end
These voices torture me:

I don’t really know the answer
I ask the voice
(Speak)
Why do you pursue me

(Voice of Fear):
I am the sickness, coldness, horror, fear
Don’t understand me
I will tell you, listen:

Hunting human beings
Staying with the weak ones
Causing trouble in their minds
I get my satisfaction

(Lost Person):
Go away from me
Please, can you spare my thoughts
I will pay you every price
If you let my soul alive
I am too weak to resist you

(Voice of Fear):
Hunting human beings
Staying with the weak ones
Causing trouble in their minds
I get my satisfaction

Hunting human beings
Staying with the weak ones
Causing trouble in your mind
I get my satisfaction (laughs)
Track Name: Desperation
That voice of fear has vanished
Just like you were banished
From this world of ours, by your own hand
But you could not care less
I can only guess

Which wall was to high to climb ?
I know it’s hard from time to time
I had a lot to carry by myself but I was in self-doubt
Did I miss your helpless shout ?

This causes my desperation
I hate this state of mind

So my dreams end here
I try to stand tall but I crawl
Back in a deeper sleep I fall

Is it my guilt, my fault, my duty
That we didn’t meet for years
That I didn’t call or write you
I have no clue
Why I haven’t shifted gears
Now I (just) taste my tears

I haven’t felt guilty in the past
Cause time is a healer, and time runs fast
But now I blame myself for being absent
Was I not there for you at last
Now my chance has passed

This causes my desperation
Track Name: Light
Without a warning the ambience is silent
And suddenly I recognize a spot of light
I am smoothly hit by sunrays and I realize:
Not only is my body getting warm, but my soul
The heat even touches my thoughts and it takes control

And it feels so soft
And it tastes so sweet
And it sounds so smooth
And I feel complete

Suddenly hell breaks loose inside my head
Suddenly I feel the blood rushing through my veins
And I feel fine, in the glow of that light
Track Name: Voices From Heaven
Beside that bright light in my mind
I hear a whisper -  soft and kind
Where is it from ? I have become 
pleased and contended,  theres no need to run

Bad times leave scars
They define who we are
Like a sign they can show
which way we have to go

When we were young, the songs that we sung
made us feel happy, nothing felt wrong
We drove down the road with heavy load
That was our burden, so we were told

All of the sudden I hear a voice, sweet as a bird and I see there’s a choice
I recall the good times – the comfort you gave – Why did you leave ?

I can hear a voice, sweet and innocent
I see there is a choice, it must be heaven sent

I can hear them and they sound like some crystal snowflakes falling down
Voices – like a legion of angels leading me the way

Now who are these voices, talking to me, while I was lying there
Looking from the ground into the sky...
Was it god ? An angel ? Or was it nature ? The elements ?
Maybe the fire, the wind and the rain ? Or is it me ?

Who were these voices, talking to me
While I was watching the sky
Maybe the fire, the wind and the rain ? Or is it me ?

I can hear a voice, sweet and innocent
I see there is a choice, it must be heaven sent

I can hear them and they sound like some crystal snowflakes falling down
Voices – like a legion of angels leading me the way
Voices from heaven calling

And they beat like a drum
They are there - but as if they’re dead
Cause these voices - are in my head

My horizon has broken, my awareness has increased
You have made your peace
Finally – I’m feeling free
My inner voice Is talking to me
I’ve learned to listen – and I found the key
I trust myself, but open-minded like the sky

And then I stand up, these words sound so clear
These voices are loud, but I have no fear
They’re guiding my way
And I carry on... I carry on...

Suddenly, hell broke loose inside my head
Suddenly, I feel the blood rushing through my veins and I feel fine
Suddenly, that voices washed away the rain
Suddenly, I just feel pleasure instead of pain....
Track Name: No Way Out
And once again my dreams change
They lost their shape and all their beauty
Now I see myself through your eyes
And I can nearly feel your cruelty

I can’t forgive you but at least I see the warning.
Never give up though it seems there’s no way out
(Spoken):
Although we had so much in common, I can’t understand your decision
But right now I can sense your distress

What is the way?
The way that I must find and go alone
I have no guide to trust to keep me strong
What if truth was only fiction and went wrong ...
Is this all reality?

Here is my sorrow
I feel there's no way out

Where was your hope, your will to live
why was there no one to release you from your pain
to break your chains
I can't explain – why weren’t you as strong as me

I can’t forgive you but at least I see the warning:
Never give up, though it seems there’s no way out
(Spoken):
I hope I’ll always find my way out and no matter how hard it gets
I know … I could never do what you did

What is the way?
The way that I must find and go alone
I have no guide to trust to keep me strong
What if truth was only fiction and went wrong ...
Is this all reality?
Track Name: The Mire
Far away the darkest clouds disappear
The full moon glows in all its beauty
This mire I reach is daunting
It does not reflect the light of the stars
The branches and reeds they look like scars

This scene is full of emptiness
Silent water, cut by screams

Screams of a human soul
Locked by invisible walls
Lost in a sea of lies
Screaming until it dies

Dark clouds do return
(They bury all the light inside me)
My heart starts to burn
Moonlight disappears
Welcoming my fears

Screams of a human soul
Locked up by invisible walls
Lost in a sea of lies
Screaming until it dies
