    The In-Between Kingdom

    (Instrumental)

    Otherwhere

    I am becoming
    In the realm of unknown
    Beyond unending
    Time
    Space
    And form

    I was buried for rebirth
    Casting off the old
    Born into the spirit
    From within I come

    Escape from sorrow
    No beginning
    No end
    Return to whiteness
    The new loneliness

    I was buried for rebirth
    Casting off the old
    Born into the spirit
    From within I come

    Suspended in Whiteness

    a) This Heaven
    Soon after the awakening
    I flew up in the air
    I was a snowflake floating
    Through my heavenland
    As light as a feather
    An ash
    Like a grain of sand
    From the white desert
    And the misplaced time
    I really need to find

    I was a drop of water
    From the pool of life
    Since my burden’s gone
    I am the calm inside
    This heaven makes me light

    b) Don’t feel alive
    The sudden flashback stirs in my head
    I see the boat
    I see the ferryman
    Recall my choice
    Recall the words he said
    So where the heaven am I now?
    Where the heaven am I?
    I don’t feel alive
    I don’t feel alive
    I feel nothing

    My lips are tightly sealed
    My mind is blank
    And every part of me is paralyzed
    The scattered bits of my consciousness
    Are suspended in the whiteness
    Another stage of my path

    I don’t feel alive
    I don’t feel alive
    I feel nothing

    Asoulum

    I can’t move
    Belts are too tight
    Four bare white walls
    Garish light
    Awake!

    Welcome to my travel berth
    It’s about time
    To cleanse all those hurts
    And return

    I won’t go
    Cause I’m in the soul asylum
    I can’t go
    Cause I’m in the soul asylum
    I can’t move on
    Cause I’m stuck in the soul asylum
    Please don’t erase my name again

    Something appears next to me
    I follow it
    I am led to the edge of bright

    I watch as this place starts to change
    It takes on all kinds of different shapes
    Twisted screaming faces lash out from the walls
    Fear permeates through my soul
    I hear the moaning
    Voices from my past
    I’m sinking in the sea of returning cries
    For good

    I won’t go
    Cause I’m in the soul asylum
    I can’t go
    Cause I’m in the soul asylum
    I can’t move on
    Cause I’m stuck in the soul asylum
    Please don’t erase my name again
    Not again

    Limbo

    (Instrumental)

    Escape from ParadIce

    Thought I was healed
    Cause I felt something different
    When you took me above
    To this place
    Your pride
    The Ice Palace stood
    On the top of the mountain
    You said
    There are bars in the windows
    But a great view outside

    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    Cause I know I will not take it anymore
    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    I’ve got a fear of heights
    In this perfect world

    It’s time to fall

    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    Cause I know I cannot take it anymore
    Help me
    Help me end my lie
    I’ve got a fear of heights
    In this perfect world

     

    Thought I was healed
    Cause I felt something different
    When you took me above
    To this place
    Your pride
    Everything there was so pure and ideal
    You said
    Look as much as you want to
    Only try not to touch

    It’s my turn to fall

    Transition

    Swallowed up in dreams
    In an empty space
    I’m being carried away
    Into the light

    It’s all hazy around
    I’m filtering through the fog
    Heading into
    The heart of what lies beyond all time

    I’m being taken along
    A course I’ve been on before
    I see nests of souls
    Fireflies

    Passing slowly by
    And rising up higher
    Heading into
    The heart of what lies beyond all time

    ***

    I had a lonely life
    In my safety zone
    Somewhere on the edge of the world
    I was searching for myself
    Watching all the others’ lives
    Doing nothing with my own
    All too soon the life was over
    And in my sunset days
    Without love
    With no friends
    I couldn’t let you come and take my soul
    So after all
    The last thing that I saw
    Were the waves crashing violently on the shore

     

    ***

    The darkness washed inside me
    I crossed over to the other side
    As my eyes adjusted to the dark
    I could distinguish distant pallid light

    So I went in this direction
    Trying not to lose my way
    And when I achieved my goal
    I saw the brightness
    Clouds
    And all those nice memories
    All those nice memories
    But this special one
    I’d left
    Behind in the shade
    In my darkest fear
    And If I don’t go back
    I’ll never find myself

    Gravestone Hill

    When they met after years
    One day
    They went to the hill
    Where the old gravestone stood in the shade
    Lonely
    Admiring the city lights
    They started a new life
    Their love was reborn

    The old gravestone
    Forgotten by time
    Remained in the shade

    Winter came earlier
    Than last year when they moved on
    They returned
    The whole family
    Happy with memories and snow
    Children were sledding
    So joyful
    They looked at them
    Smiling
    Embraced with love

    The old gravestone
    Forgotten by time
    Remained in the shade
    Alone

    Wanderings

    I am walking
    Through the valley of the shadow of your name
    It’s been another after-life-time
    Since you left me here this way
    How about a little game of chess
    How about we roll the dice
    What can I do
    Where should I go now
    I want to look into your eyes

    Drifting In the state of limbo
    Condemned to idleness
    Listen to the sound of distant memories
    Passing through the white hourglass

    Just wandering around

    Looking for the way to my home
    I’ve lived someone else’s life
    Waiting for the perfect moment
    I’ve lost all track of time

    What can I do
    Where should I go now
    I want to look into your eyes
    Listen to the sound of distant memories
    Passing through the white hourglass

    In the middle of light and darkness
    In the middle of bright and shade
    I was trying to avoid your kiss
    I was trying to escape

    Now I’m the soul
    Banished to everlasting wanderings
