    2. the passage

    the trial has just begun
    i know it
    you’re my destiny
    the final story

    sand is running out
    you are waiting
    far on the other side
    in the forest
    in the dark
    will i find you there
    when you close my eyes

    *

    on my tangled road
    i want it
    find the entrance
    and regain my memories

    i’m thinking out loud
    passing former gods
    turned into trees
    am i in the real life
    or am i in the realm of make-believe

    if i pray
    will you help me to get out
    if i pray
    will you help me to become
    need to find the passage to the light

    *

    on my winding road
    i stumble
    i’m losing my faith
    let myself wander

    i keep going on
    while you’re waiting
    far on the other side
    it is getting cold and dark
    will i find you there
    when you close my eyes

    if i pray

    will you help me to get out
    if i pray
    will you help me to become
    need to find the passage to the light

    if i pray
    will you help me to get out
    if i pray
    will you help me to become
    one last bit of a chance to revive
    to revive

    *

    need to find the passage to the light
    to revive
    need to find the passage to the light
    to revive
    need to find the passage to the light
    to revive
    need to find the passage to the light
    to revive

    3. through shaded woods

    eyes on every corner
    shine among the woods
    whispers and voices
    and my starving truth
    i thought i had it covered
    i thought i had it down
    warm breath of fear
    lycanthropic smile

    run through your shaded woods
    run through your shaded mind
    run through the night
    run away
    run through the darkness
    run

    eyes on every corner
    shining in the dark

    4. oblivion

    i’ve come this far
    and still remember
    even though
    i would like to forget

    consequences of my choice
    caught up to me
    as the prophecy fulfilled
    i yearn

    nothingness
    nothing around me
    nothingness
    nothing around me

    it returns
    over and over
    i still have the taste of salt on my lips
    oh my Lethe
    river of forgetfulness
    let me soothe my soul
    erase my sins

    i’m silently drowning
    among your tears
    silently falling into your grief
    i’m silently drowning
    among your waves
    silently falling into your breath
    let me pretend i am born again

    5. summoning dance

    most of the road i travelled alone
    is now far behind
    i have an opportunity to believe
    and to revive

    so why do i feel
    like i already failed
    three stones on the right side
    three stones on the left

    i had to keep starting over from scratch
    put that to rest
    i didn’t like myself
    and what i’d become
    and i was tired

    three stones on the right side
    three stones on the left
    my vicious circle of life and death

    “oh you want it”
    i hear it again
    “oh you want it”
    my burden
    curse to break

    i don’t know if i’m capable anymore
    of learning
    what it’s like to feel
    on the other side of my dream
    i will try to wake up
    and to believe

    just break my curse

    *

    most of my afterlife
    i have spent
    trying to solve
    the diagram
    i forgot i’d made up
    when it all had begun

    so why do i feel
    like i already failed
    three stones on the right
    side three stones on the left

    “oh you want it”
    i hear it again
    “oh you want it”
    my burden
    curse to break
    i don’t know if i’m capable anymore
    of learning
    what it’s like to feel
    on the other side of my dream
    i will try to wake up
    and to believe
    i don’t know if i will be able to love
    if i cannot find you there

    summon me now
    just break my curse
    the dance begins

    *

    you had to stop in the middle of life
    and live in a cavern of lies
    whenever you were pulling away from yourself
    they made you believe it’s okay
    forced you to stand still
    stop moving
    to vegetate
    but you always wanted to dance
    you always wanted to dance
    you always wanted to dance

    6. the fountain

    on this side of awakening
    i no longer wait for you to come
    not this time
    maybe later
    in a navy-blue world

    summertime
    a perfect moment
    i will give myself another try
    sun rays break through the branches
    ancient sacrifice

    silence breaks apart
    brightness comes to life
    stream of sounds
    wash away the darkness from my soul

    *

    so goodbye
    we part our ways
    it’s the point of no return, my love
    i’ve crossed this bridge
    oh, maybe seven times
    but only now i feel calm

    silence breaks apart
    brightness comes to life
    stream of sounds
    wash away the darkness from my soul

    you know i’ll return
    this won’t change my faith
    but for now
    wash away the darkness from my heart
