1. Angels Cry

Cry in the night of the angel
For their light will never shine
With their hearts so full of sorrow
Muddy waters all around
The curtain falls
for helpless souls
How they suffer swept aside
And the raging streams are flowing
with so little hope inside

(Is like)
Angels crying
Can't take no more
Angels dying
capture their fall

Try to see this misery
your future is not what you wished it to be
So try to fly, the answer lies
in the angry darkened skies (angry darkened skies)

You just keep on standing in these fields
all your life
You sow the seeds that never grow
No harvest comes such a strain
to feed the few
Still you're waiting, it's in vain...
The change must come right now!

Oh, see the sun in the sky
(from the dawn of destruction)
Free, free this chain from my heart... (chain, chain, chain)
Hear the cry of angels
from this life you cannot hide
The change may come tomorrow
for the solemn weeping eyes

(Like)
Angels crying
Can't take no more
Angels dying
capture their fall

Try to see this misery
your future is not what you wished it to be
So try to fly, the answer lies
in the angry darkened skies (angry darkened skies)

You just keep on standing in these fields
all your life
You sow the seeds that never grow
No harvest comes such a strain
to feed the few
Still you're waiting, it's in vain...
The change must come right now!

Angels are crying and dying
There must be some way
endless you stray, still you pray
for a better life
Nobody sees when a glimpse
of your target lies behind you,
Like steps of the pilgrims unshined!


2. Time

This time I wanna know
what life means...
...to live it again
I'm looking forward, feel the
light shine in my eyes...
And now I know, my instincts
were not wrong,
and many things can be done
I don't believe now,
That I'm dreaming alone

Oh, we're searching for the love
that everyone's got,
but can't see (yeah)
Oh, beyond the flesh and blood
there's so much hidden behind
as so much more we've gotta give...

Sanity brings up the sadness
that keeps your ilusions locked
in a little box
Fright comes, you find yourself lonely
in a cage of conclusions
crowding your mind
You sit back bowing your head,
every answer - yes
Why don't you trust me
and shed out your fears,
Running over
the tears you've contained
now cover up your eyes,
- Is it good for you?

I will be here when fire burns!...

Welcome on board
over here is the ship of your life
So rotten
that will cast away
I'll be your sweet lullaby
all the night
And if you get lost
you can hold my hand...

And I'll be here when fire burns
[inside your heart]
Climb up the hills and mountains,
don't forget what you've learned!

Life make us feel
the time we cannot hold
Time make us live
a tale already told
Time make us heal
a feeling inside
a feeling that lies in your heart
that we stole away...

And I'll be here when fire burns
[inside your heart]
Climb up the hills and mountains,
don't forget what you've learned!

Life make us feel [life make us feel]
the time we cannot hold
Time make us live [time make us live]
a tale already told
Time make us heal (time make us heal)
a feeling inside
a feeling that lies in your heart
that we stole away...


3. Make Believe

Sat beside the meadow
Watching weeds agrow
Cleaned up all the ashes
Of my soul

Wrote down my own sentence
Now you take your way
Fades the last remembrance
Of your lovely pretty face

I, after all,
Just a lonely man - a lonely heart!

Working on the future
Floating on fate
Faced the circumstances
Cleared up the shades, so

Make believe
There's no sorrow in your eyes
Can't you see
We could never get back from the start
Minutes waiting, life's been wasted
...Maybe I wanna die some other day.

Hear the whispers of your hope
The answer wasn't told
No, don't laugh seeing me cry
The end I've left behind
(...The whispers of your hope are left behind!)

Make believe
There's no sorrow in your eyes
Can't you see
We could never get back from the start
Minutes waiting, life's been wasted

And I've tried,
Maybe you deny.
Words of peace
For the future of our lives

Bring to me
Something else than a broken heart
I won't wait 'till my life is wasted
...Maybe I wanna die some other day


4. Carry On

Simple minded brain
for now you succumb
Nothing changes your way
This world insists to be the same
based on our mistakes
The flowers fade along the road
Don't blindfold your eyes,
so loneliness becomes the law
of a senseless life

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are in your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride
to get there... (go!)

Now we have to face another day
You won't be alone
This life is forcing us to stay
- For how long?
Cold is the wind and thunder struck
on a stormy night
But can't you see, I'm by your side
We are marching on!...

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are in your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride
to get there...

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past, to carry on

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are in your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride
to get there...

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past

Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past, to carry on
The remains from the past, to carry on
The remains from the past...


5. Lullaby For Lucifer

On the sand, by the sea
I left my heart to shed my grief
A vulture came begging me:
- Feed me with this piece of meat!

I won't give away
Something I need

On a garden nursery
I let my face wander free
Children playing around a tree
Sharing apples happily

Come and rest with me
Lay your hands on dreams

I'll wait here by your side
Till you fall asleep
I'll wait until you cry
All over me the tears you hide inside...


6. Reaching Horizons

Rainny clouds
covered the depth and sunny sky
now I know I'll sleep alone tonite
tears and prayers will be taken by the rain
And the lonelyness in my dreams
Now I know I'll never be the same
living this tragedy, insane,
All I wanna be
is to be free with you, with me
I don't blame the fate
but it's too hard to face the truth

It was all just like paradise [1]
just like we wanted it to be
far beyond the reason
rest our lives
eternity denies the guilt of reality
senselesness

Fly High, reaching skies
too eagles trying to be free
moments of madness
will be left behind
the same horizon
but in different lands


7. The Shaman

Oh boys, I've seen the old man;
Straw mask around the forehead
The blaze, a blast and the awakening dead
(The magic seeds will spread...)

The bleeding warrior, he has fought -
(Healing leaves, piranha teeth,
nobody leaves this place 'till the dawn!)
Against the passion, for the love
(Serpent skin, a savage scream,
don't you believe, it grows and grows...)

Oh boys, it's all so easy:
Warm up the soul
While the body is freezin''!
- I swear it!

Against the men for the land
Against the beast to survive
Against the demons to keep the faith
(The spirits and the fate...)

A word - together they will shout!
(Run and pray if you're afraid
you better stay away from it all!)
A rumble shakes up all the ground
(Start to sing, to turn and spin,
get rid of all your sins right now!..)

Oh boys, it's all so easy:
Warm up the soul
While the body is freezin'!

A word - together they will shout!
(Healing leaves, piranha teeth,
nobody leaves this place 'till the dawn!)
Against the passion, for the love
(Start to sing, to turn and spin,
get rid of all your sins right now!..)

Oh boys, it's all so easy:
Warm up the soul
While the body is freezin'!
Still we can hope a single world together;
Warm up the soul...

- Boys, I swear I've been there!


8. Holy Land

We were born in a Golden Age
Beyond the creed
Blown with the winds to meet
The ones who creep
And pray

Unshod feet traces on fresh sand
A map unfold
Spreading out knowledge,
Magic and love
And then

Carried by wooden gods
We leave towards the sky
Gushed out the holy blood
From those who die
To bless

Ooh, and dance...
Ooh, still dance...

Someone has sent
Somebody here
To bring an age
Long disappeared

Holy Land -
Throw you scars on me!
My soul just tends to be
Your friend.

Holy Land - Holy Land around
Holy Land - Holy land is all...

Someone has sent
Somebody here
To bring an age
Long disappeared

Holy Land -
Show your signs to me!
'Cause I'm still here to see
Your face.


9. Jam

[instrumental]


10. Wuthering Heights

[Originally performed by Kate Bush]

Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper, like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me?
When I needed to possess you
I hated you, I loved you too

Bad dreams in the night
They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy come home
I'm so cold, let me in-a-your window

Oh it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine alot, I find the lot
Falls through without you
I'm coming back love, cruel Heathcliff
My only one dream, my only master

Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right
I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy


11. Chega De Saudade

[instrumental]


12. Never Understand

White gold, a morning came
Sunny cold, reflecting light
Unknown songs

Fresh water gush licks the lime
Sprinkling crowns of silence
The face wet from the moistened dew

Wind takes the sight
Around the meadow
Playing kindly

Silver dropped wine
That flows inside
a sleeping hand...

Desperation fills the air
(In your heart lies the dust of the anger)
Madness knocking on my back
(Chiming bells have announced the new day)

My courage lies someplace
where time forgot to send me
(now where are you going?)
(now where are you going now?)
Someday they'll mark your sins
like torture on your back

I wonder why
My mind is tight
Like stormy weather
And so it seems
That little steps
would take forever

Oh, never understand...
We're like mad horses
heading for the bend
This place I'm standing here
Made it on my own
Moored my life to never let it go...

I wonder why
My mind is tight
Like stormy weather
And so it seems
That little steps
would take forever

Never understand...
We're like mad horses
heading for the bend
This place I'm standing here
Made it on my own
Moored my life to never let it go...

All my life I'll be the way
I won't forget
All my life is never understand


13. Wasted Years

[Originally performed by Iron Maiden]

From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I'm travellin' on, far and wide
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do,
it isn't me but someone else

I close my eyes, and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is,
you never miss it 'til it's gone away
And my heart is lying there
and will be 'til my dying day

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching
for those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain, so easily
When you can't find the words to say
it's hard to make it through another day
And it makes me wanna cry
and throw my hands up to the sky
