Lyrics
Fading pt. 1
Deeper and deeper
I’m seeking the shelter
of my mind
No way back
I am fading

(Holm and Aagaard/Jæger)
Go Away
Intrusive voices inside my head
I just want it to go away!
So I sit here quite unable
to escape from these emotions
Why should such feelings get to me
when I have always praised my freedom
They could really pose a threat
for my personal future
I just hope they go away
before I let them take control

I won’t accept it so I
sit still while trying to stay quiet
Maybe it goes away
I should not let these feelings
fuck with me it’s not like it should, so
Maybe it goes away

Oh, my condition burns like hell
I wish that it would go away
Oh, my condition burns like hell
I wish that it would go away

So I sit alone at home while trying
to get to my senses
It’s not like me to be this way
(I’m losing my mind) But what my problem really is,
is that it’s getting me down
It shouldn’t be this way

Go away. Give me my sanity.
Go away. Give me my sanity.

It burns
I want to scream
I can not go on
I can’t accept it

Oh, how I see the
dark side of my heart so clear
Oh, how I see the
dark side of my heart so clear

(Aagaard/Aagaard)
Ignition Point
Deep down in the mountain range,
we’ve reached the ignition point
Seeking the king of flames,
where the princess waits

Lit wicks everywhere in a
castle bathed in fire
High up suspended in the air.
Our goal is there

Chaos rues her mind,
locked up in this land
Scorching with her bare hands,
trying to conquer our land
Evil her father said.
For a hero she pled

She’s incompatible with
our world where flowers grow
She could easily destroy
our precious homes
But deep in her eyes
the hero saw a hopeful dream
maybe after all she’s not
so dangerous

Broke her down from her cell,
bid her dad farewell
The next thing anyone saw;
lands in ashes laid

When the fire stilled
all would bow to her will
All but the hero true
saw her as a demon

(Aagaard/Aagaard)
Lullaby
Follow me when the day turns dark
No lights to lead the way
Rest your head against my beating heart
Chasing your fears away

I will ease your fiery mind
Guard you from the flame
Hear the stillness of my loving voice
Whispering your name

Come to me as shadows emerge
Close your eyes and sleep
Let your mind wander as you lie
Slowly breathing deep

Lay your sleeping head, my love
Dream of brighter days
When the dawn brings the light back again
You can finally wake

I will stay until morning comes
Shield you from the war
Cradled in my warm embrace
Stay forevermore

(Aagaard/Jæger)
Crimson Sky
Hear the roaring
screams of men
Slicing through
the silence
Leaving behind
the life they once knew
To fight for a
cause unknown
Crossing swords
for a new beginning
They won’t be
able to see
But still they keep
marching on
to the same
destructive beat

And raising their
horns of steel
Leaving the weak
defenseless
Storming their
moral beliefs
Driven by the fear
Calling to arms every
solider in sight
one by one they fall
Time stands still as
they lay their dead
on the field beneath
the crimson sky

There is no victory for us,
there is no defeat In this war,
raging on till our worlds collide

What are we Fighting for?
What are we Dying for?
What are we Killing for?
End these futile wars

There is no victory for us,
there is no defeat
In this war,
raging on till our worlds collide
This is the final battle,
a hope for a different dawn
We must be
the change that we long to see

(Aagaard/Jæger)
Reflect The Energy
For so long I’ve been a
slave to the fear
Shattered to pieces
by my dear
Never had the strenght
to stand tall
Patronized and
criticised by all

Emanating from a
heart of stone
Words that cannot
be unsaid
Like a sword piercing
through the soul
Shields up, run away

Reflect the Energy,
reflect the Fire
The negativity
into desire
Reflect the agony,
reflect the jealousy
Only meant to
pull you back down

Tried to put up a
wall in my mind
My dark passenger
still walking side by side
Shielding myself
from the pain
All the energy
wasted in vain

Emanating from a
heart of stone
Words that cannot
be unsaid
Like a sword piercing
through the soul
Shields up, run away

Reflect the Energy,
reflect the Fire
The negativity
into desire
Reflect the agony,
reflect the jealousy
Only meant to
pull you back down

Like the contrail on
every glass,
Simple and pure but
never to last
I resign with a
pure sight,
Reflecting the
memories,
The hurt and
the fight

Reflect the Energy,
reflect the Fire
The negativity
into desire
Reflect the agony,
reflect the jealousy
Only meant to
pull you back,
Only meant to
pull you back down

(Jæger/Jæger)
Fading pt. 2
Come along,
walk with me
into the shadows
In this realm
there's no way to
clean out your mind
Fading still,
holding on to all
my grudges
As I lie
someone speaks
inside my head

Cover up your hands
and I'll step aside
This hidden truth
is my final chance
All that's forsaken
will be harvested
by the morn
Recognize the
ones who are
left behind Their tales are
longer than
any road
They are the ones
who are destined
to be alone again

On this path
I can hear a thousand voices
But they're weak, I can't comprehend
what they say
There's no light
where the roses grow,
faintly I wake
All in my memory,
I quiver and shake
Deep in my own thoughts
I wander about
Walking around as if someone would
look twice at me
So I'm here,
waiting for the
fall of pressure
As I stray
someone speaks
inside my head

Cover up your hands
and I'll step aside
This hidden truth
is my final chance
All that's forsaken
will be harvested
by the morn
Recognize the
ones who are
left behind Their tales are
longer than
any road
They are the ones
who are destined
to be alone again

Come along
into my mind
Losing our masks
We're alone here
Going on forever
This cycle will not end
Come along

(Aagaard/Aagaard)
