Reborn 05:57
Oh phoenix, let me climb on your pyre Phoenix reborn again What is this? a strange wind blowing Bearing secrets with its hushing rustle And who are you? a figure approaching Are these footsteps I hear or my heartbeat Pounding, forcing the Amorphis to conceive Chimes of midnight I stand helpless watching as the tremulous bud turns to the sun Oh phoenix, let me climb on your pyre Phoenix forge me a soul in your fire Will I wither like all roses? Will I forfeit my own cry? But the blackness held its silence The golden scales in perfect balance For time it is weightless At least not until dawn breaks Come back when the spring ends To see Lady Lazarus stand trial Oh phoenix, let me climb on your pyre Phoenix reborn again Oh phoenix, let me climb on your pyre I am Phoenix I am reborn again I am Phoenix I am reborn again.. Look

Touched 04:13
I know by the pound in my chest when you told me that you've passed the test And by the softness I feel When I dream our stars align Roses broke and grace got torn I know you just don't want to get hurt no more Your eyes are blinded by fear Well I can see the future and it’s clear Because you've touched my soul It changed its texture We're good alone But can be great together That is why I know Not to let go Pain and joy are woven fine but can’t you see they’re clothing for a soul divine Infinity in your hand To see the galaxies in just one grain of sand Because you've touched my soul It changed its texture We're good alone But can be great together That is why I know Not to let go What can I do to make you believe this? If I could open up your mind You’ll see all that lies behind and ahead Because you've touched my soul It changed its texture We're good alone But can be great together That is why I know Not to let go

Frozen Sun 04:51
Summer has come frozen sun Nothing is moving the heroes have gone What was that song? Am I really going mad now? I’m trying to hold on to sanity's sound Beyond the shadows I see a shimmer I know that it won't stand waiting forever But nothing is free Time seems like an endless crown And I weaved my jewels through the thread Slipped from my hand I’m done Must I accept that the cycle has ended Or am I to blame for playing the clown Spiraling down Summer has come frozen sun Nothing is moving the heroes have gone Where are they now Sacred hallowed grounds This is a game just for kings And the eagle is spreading his wings Carving up pieces and bits In this mausoleum Refining the organic parts And wash away the husk What tools can suffice for this act Of salvaging hidden charts The great clock it always counts back To the moment that’s never ours Is a second just long enough Time seems like an endless crown And I weaved my jewels through the thread Slipped from my hand I’m done Must I accept that the cycle has ended Or am I to blame for playing the clown Time seems like an endless crown And I weaved my jewels through the thread Slipped from my hand I’m done Must I accept that the cycle has ended Or am I to blame for playing the clown Spiraling down

I’m too close for him to dream about me I don’t flutter over him Not fleeing him under the roots of trees I’m too close I’m too close for him to dream about me I don’t flutter over him Not fleeing him under the roots of trees I’m too close Not with my voice sings the captured fish The ring doesn’t roll from my finger Too close for him to enter as the guest Before whom the walls part I’m too close for him to dream about me Riches rust in density Fallen the leaves Bare are the roots of trees I’m too close Never again will I die so readily So far beyond the flesh, so inadvertently Too close, too close, I hear the hiss and see the glittering husk Immobilized in his embrace Poor me limited to my own form But I was a birch tree I was a lizard I emerged from satins and sundials My skin shimmering in all the different colors I possessed the grace to disappear from astonished eyes I’m too close, I’m too close Too close, I’m too close I’m too close for him to dream about me All those peacock eggs I’ve laid Fill up the room He can’t see them, he can’t see me I’m too close I’m too close for him, hiding my skin Too much flesh and blood for him He yearns for one, yet to be seen In this night too close A valley now grows in her for him, ochre-leaved Out of reach closed off by a snowy mountain In the azure air, I’m too close To fall out of the sky for him My screams would only awaken him I’m too close, I’m too close Too close, I’m too close

Monster 04:17
What a monster I am, my breath can spoil milk Waving my small change, blow every deal I make no excuses now that's really not my place Seems I've drained your well of good intentions I bleach all the shades and talk too much I make no suggestions now that's really not my place You really fucked me over You really fucked me over I'm clutching at my mornings Conquering them back Give me back my mornings Oh I need them How could you steal them from me? I will never be fearless like that again Use both of my lungs and all my skin Conjure up spells to pull you in Every moment was magic and that's the core of my pain Dark and twisted magic, I'd do it all again If I had my innocence back I'm conquering my longings Close down every crack I won’t give in now You say I never let you sleep You can sleep now You can sleep till you die You can sleep away your life

Hey now, moonlight dancer Can you remember what never was? Hey now now, black horse lancer Will you give up your toys for a smile? And will I.. Smoke signs in the east Follow lost traces and follow the whispering sands Carry your feathered wings Hey now, moonlight dancer Lullaby shouting in my ear Every page has an answer Will you dare to dream again with me? And will I.. Smoke signs in the east Follow lost traces and follow the whispering sands Carry your feathered wings Smoke signs in the east Follow lost traces and follow the whispering sands Carry these fading years

Black Holes 07:02
Sticks and stones you broke no bones And I’ll cover the tracks with a hastening sound Plucking red feathers and pulling red skin Sucking the poison out, in The monster, the terror Sugar glazed black holes They only add up on the screen Restless fingers grasping to reach Allowed in the ocean but never the beach You showed me a spaceship but forgot to teach Mercury vines Come and go with the tides They ask not for vengeance Run thicker than blood Right along with the mud in the veins So should we be sealing the deal? Sticks and stones you broke no bones And I’ll cover the tracks with a hastening sound No remorse you had no choice And I’ll cover the cracks with those self-made fresh scars Pushing the boulder, transforming, I swim Giving my best to the fool on a whim The hanged man, the tower Ill-conceived lovers bound to their work on the wheel Speaking by fire and sleeping by creed Always in power but never in need The ruins of Atlantis Generations grieving the seed A misguided prophet messiah of lies Left us with knots where there should be ties The smell of old sweat and the buzzing of flies And you're so full of chemicals you glow in the dark If I claw the distance behind your smile Show guts and infiltrate your mind Dismantle your atoms and rebuild my right Strings don't align They curve up in my spine They serve no utility Left taking comfort in her ability To always see the natural possibility And gracefully choosing the odd probability The ones and the threes In my spine and my knees It’s all there encrypted in genes Along with the frenzy along with the tears Sticks and stones you broke no bones And I’ll cover the tracks with a hastening sound No remorse you had no choice And I’ll cover the cracks with those self-made fresh scars

The Beggar 04:13
Summer turned to winter and now summer came again Leave a candle burning so my words won't be scattered in vain I've been biting on my lip and I've been chewing on the pain Swallowing up the sadness and spitting in the rain The truth is I'm afraid all the time Like a beggar Take this heart and take the salt You downright should it's all my fault I told you once you told me twice My fucking math, a poor disguise Hands they shake when you don’t watch I'm screaming like a madman behind the door All the mess that you won't touch And more and more The truth is I'm afraid all the time Like a beggar for your love For your love For your love For these crumbs paid the price in flesh That you never even came to charge For the beast that hungered, starving It resides in me The beggar inside of me The truth is she’s afraid all the time Like a beggar A lost child she’s wandering, bare feet and cold Dreaming of Phoenix a path to unfold The triumph of mermaids and lead turned to gold But the truth is I’m afraid all the time Like a beggar

And then came the storm And it blew me away And then came the Storm All my ghosts I have summoned thee All my ghosts now arise Rattlesnake and Scorpio fighting Eagle grounded never flying Question pounding in my mind And then came the storm And it blew me away And then came the Storm Through my thoughts I have summoned thee Through my thoughts now collide It's fuelling up on my ambition Burning in my intuition One more question on my mind: Is it love or heaven that I have to find? Take away this feeling from inside Pull away your Claws release my pride All this softness Is pulling down The pillars that hold my sky Why can’t anybody love and set free? Why can’t anybody love and set free? Why can’t anybody love and set free? Why can’t anybody love and release the chains? Don't be too quick to throw all your clothes on the floor There’s a certain order in this room that I have to take care for Take away this feeling from inside Pull away your claws release my pride Sometimes love is not enough And sometimes love is just too much Why can’t anybody love and set free? Why can’t anybody love and set free? Why can’t anybody love and set free? Why can’t anybody love and release the chains? Is it love or heaven that I have to find?

Earth Walker 03:35
Empty is the cup that needs to fill Creature of land come to the deep Gathering the seaweed from a dream Under the waves I’ll keep them for you Earth walker I could never feel the shame of the blood and dust and cracking Bone brother When the memories erase your heart can choose For every life another you must kill I am not me and you are not here For years I’ve watched you struggle to be seen I see you clear there’s nothing to win Earth walker I could never feel the shame of the blood and dust and cracking Bone brother When the memories erase your heart can choose Earth walker Bone brother Storm mother
