Track Name: The Art of Evil
This invasion marching through the lands
is a sign of the end
Drawn by hatred, vengeance and dismay
in a pointless display

They attack with empty eyes
blindfold by poems of lies
Betrayed by the Scripts from the Past
There’s no light where they come from

The Art of Evil
Deadly and coming your way
The Art of Evil
We will fight till the bitter end

This intrusion threatens every man
Preparing their final stand
Dogma driven drowning lies
Bring the fall for our kind

Like a cancer they breed on your fear
Claiming all hope that is here
It's a monolith mocking of life
There’s no grace where they come from

The Art of Evil
Deadly and coming your way
The Art of Evil
We will fight till the bitter end

Let the fight begin!

Hail - Rise - Fight
Hail - Rise - Fight
Hail - Rise - Fight
Hail - Rise - Fight

The Art of Evil
Deadly and coming your way
The Art of Evil
We will fight till the bitter end
Track Name: Sea of Damnation
I enter
the hour of madness
here is nothing
but sorrow and sadness

(Welcome to the show)

Life inside
a world of closing doors
I feel caught,
caught in the devil’s claws
All is lost,
and you can't be
sane and free

I’m drowning
in a Sea of Damnation
To the echoes
of a standing ovation

Life inside
a world of closing doors
And I feel caught,
caught in the devil’s claws
All is lost,
and you can't be
sane and free

Drifting away
Fading away
Drifting away
Fading away

Life inside
a world of closing doors
I feel caught,
caught in the devil’s claws
All is lost,
and you can't be
sane and free
Track Name: Demon's Domain
Black widow,
Queen of the Night
Hiding in the shadows,
Spitting fire
Soul Reaper,
Feeding on lies,
She'll turn your heart to stone

Dancer of darkness,
the sun as her disguise
Fooling your heart
Until you fall apart
With the light side down
Find your will to live
Take this battle,
and never forgive

Can you take it,
you're a subject to lies
Always searching,
for the truth in her eyes
Her love you can never attain
You are entering a Demon's Domain

A Demon's Domain

Can you face it
You are in her control
You are searching,
within her soul
And the flame you will never detain
You will not escape
the Demon's domain

She's the black widow
Queen of the Night
Hiding in the shadows,
Spitting fire
Soul reaper
Taking your life,
She'll turn your heart to stone

Black widow,
Queen of the Night
Hiding in the shadows,
Spitting fire
Soul reaper,
Feeding on lies,
She'll turn your heart to stone

A Demon’s Domain

Temptation
Forever
My heart will burn

Temptation
Forever
My heart will burn

Fly with me,
you and I are meant to be
All this time,
you have been a dream of mine
Eternal sleep,
we are just a memory
You and I,
soaring in a burning sky

She's the black widow,
the Queen of the Night
She is in the shadows,
Spitting fire
Soul reaper,
Say your goodbyes,
She'll turn your heart to stone

Black widow,
Queen of the Night
Hiding in the shadows,
Spitting fire
Soul reaper,
Say your goodbyes
She'll turn your heart to stone
Track Name: Strangers Descent (feat. Derek Sherinian)
Strangers descent from the heavens
making their presence known
Taking back what is rightfully theirs
Taking back what they own

They came through the gate
Ferocious, unreal, a foul avenger
A legion of hate
An alien life contender

Breaking down the wall
Aiming at our world
We’ll all
take the fall

They crawl under your skin
To break any barrier
A fear spreading carrier
Don't let them in

They came to obtain
The essence of life, the human fire
A new breeding place
to their queen’s desire

Breaking down the wall
Aiming at our world
We’ll all
take the fall

Breaking down the wall
Aiming at our world
We’ll all
take the fall

Breaking down the wall
Breaking down the wall
Track Name: Frozen
Stuck in this fantasy
lonely, twisted, and blind
Caught in a useless melody
That is tearing me up inside

I feel the wrath
an unbreakable path
broken and enslaved
to my own imagination

Frozen
Refining my life
- DEAD, COLD -
Transformation
Reincarnation

Wrestling with demons now
Is it real or a dream?
Helplessly calling out your name
with a breathless silent scream

I feel the wrath
an unbreakable path
broken and enslaved
to my own imagination

Frozen
Refining my life
- DEAD, COLD -
Transformation
Reincarnation

Now ... My end is near,
I'm on my own
I’m feeling the fear
My name carved in stone

My heart is cold as ice
Now lay me to rest
Knowing the pain surrounding me
let my blackened soul be free

I feel the wrath
an unbreakable path
broken and enslaved
to my own imagination

Frozen
Refining my life
- DEAD, COLD -
Transformation
Reincarnation

Frozen
Take this life
-
Resurrection
to my perfection
Track Name: The Escape
This time at midnight
The shadows dance
Reveals the story of
A life in flames
In the burning light
I feel the pain

One broken soul
Another life in a hole
But are you really free
or a melody of
what could be

The end comes closer
accept your fate
the wound grows deeper
a life in vain
The light is fading now
Free the …
Pain

One broken soul
Another life in a hole
But are you really free
or a melody of
what could be

What could be another story
Took a turn there’s no way back (no way back)
All hope is lost this is the ending
Fade to black the clock stops ticking

Tested the limits of life
Trying to heal the pain
Hoping to end this bitter confusion
To escape the darkness
Track Name: In Silence We Ride
I saw the heavens falling
A hero slain
An omen of the changes
That will ingrain
The world has turned to madness
Now I see
Corruption plagues the power
You fought to free

I feel the light escaping my soul
I feel the wrath conquer the cold

You fought so brave to try and
Win this fight
But you lost to this darkness
The eternal night
So I am now the one to
Hold the key
The burden now befalls me
To lead this mutiny

I feel a hope return to my soul
I feel the wrath let go of the cold

In Silence We Ride
On a mission to take down the sunlight
In silence we fly
It’s our final time to rise

We need a revolution
to regain
The people’s trust and power
And start again
We need a new solution
On this day
This is the final hour
We can’t stay

I feel the light rescue my soul
I feel the wrath conquer the cold

In Silence We Ride
On a mission to take down the sunlight
In silence we fly
It’s our final time to rise
We’ll reclaim the sky
In Silence We Ride
We will rise!

I feel no wrath
we’re out of the cold

In Silence We Ride
On a mission to take down the sunlight
In silence we fly
It’s our final time to rise

In Silence We Ride
On a mission to reclaim the sky
In silence we fly
It's our time to rise
Track Name: Catch-22
I am the fallen
I came from the sky
I’ve conquered the darkness
I am the night

Your fears I created
You'll never stand a chance
Your mind is sedated
Your will is in my hands

Ain’t no cure for the evil in you
The darkness within
will always shine through

Bring the light into the darkness
We'll bring the night to an end
A spark of light feeding on darkness
We all unite
Together we stand

I am your God now
Your sins I create
I took your heart out
and watched it decay

Ain’t no cure for the evil in you
The darkness within
will always shine through

Bring the light into the darkness
We'll bring the night to an end
A spark of light feeding on darkness
We all unite
Together we stand

Together we will stand
We’ll stand together

Preachers of the night
Come to me ... HA HA HA
Open the gates
To immortality

Take this life into the darkness
We will bring the light to an end

Take this gift,
the life you long for
Don’t resist
the truth in you

Ain’t no cure for the evil in you
The darkness within
will always shine through

Bring the light into the darkness
We'll bring the night to an end
A spark of light feeding on darkness
We all unite
Together we stand
Track Name: Our Journey
Why will you abandon me?
And leave me in the cold
My Misery

Why, oh why you fail to see?
My heart will bleed
Eternally

You feel no shame
when you leave me dealing with the pain

Why, why don’t you speak to me?
Whispering my name silently

You feel no shame when you leave me dealing with the pain

This time I died
Now the angels cry
(Goodbye)

Someday, somewhere
we'll meet again.
Some place, somehow
Our Journey ends

Now, you left me here to stay
I'm the guilty one
Who threw your heart away

You failed to see
My misery is history

My Misery Our Journey ends
so peacefully ...

This time we died
This time I cried
Goodbye

Someday, somewhere
we'll meet again.
Some place, somehow
Our Journey ends

Someday, somewhere
we'll meet again.
Some place, somehow
Our Journey ends
Track Name: Skies Are Falling
Don't look back
Clear your mind
Take these eyes
and behold what you find
- don't change your mind

It won't be hard
You won't struggle
Let the shadows guide you
Keep your focus
Take control
Let it in and let it show

The Skies Are Falling
Darkness crawling
The Skies Are Falling
They’re falling down

Give your mind to the darkness
You will see things progress
Lead my army
Take control
Let it in and let it show

The Skies Are Falling
Darkness crawling
The Skies Are Falling
They’re falling down

You are giving in
to a world of anguish
There’s no returning
I will be witness to your demise

The Skies Are Falling
Darkness crawling
The Skies Are Falling
They’re falling down
down
down

The demons within
Chaos consumes your mind
I am gonna bring you down
I am gonna break you apart
I’m coming for you

I’m coming for you
Power, corruption, destruction – I’ll break you
Take you, forsake you, unmake you
Burning your soul away
Burning your soul away
Burning your soul away
