Winterider 04:19
These cold sombre shades Our golden days became Have us freezing here together The sun bleached so white fades away Let’s go! Grab your coat for a white night show We’ll run! Beneath the iced-up neon glow The sky’s frozen angels May strangle our days But dark arctic ages Never stole away nostalgic play Time shall bow down to your shy, shining smile We’re riding off the winter rails tonight We were the souls who swept the glitter from the floor Time paves a boulevard for those without a cause That’s yesterday, the gale blows those demons from the door For everyone has someone they stay smiling for Don’t stop! Forget the woe of what you’ve lost Arise! Awaken the alleys of Everfrost The sky’s frozen angels May strangle our days But dark arctic ages Never stole away nostalgic play Time shall bow down to your shy, shining smile We’re riding off the winter rails tonight Winterider! Winterider! Winterider! Oh we’re riding off the winter rails tonight Winterider! Oh we’re riding off the winter rails tonight Oh we’re riding to winter’s night

Woke up it was dark outside A sad dream still in my mind We couldn’t say goodbye Because you and I had died The storm arrived we’re young and terrified Don’t wanna stay another day And satisfy their hunger It breaks my heart we must depart To even see next summer While we’re still alive We’ll take the time to say goodbye We’ll die if we stay one more night We’ll head for the forest heights A hideaway from the reaper’s scythe The misty dawn will welcome us all to the light The clouds of winter’s harvest Hid those around her carcass But I can’t accept their madness Or the fear that made them like this I miss the marigold blissfulness Don’t wanna stay another day And see it all go under It breaks my heart we must depart We couldn’t be any younger While we’re still alive We’ll take the time to say goodbye We’ll die if we stay one more night We’ll head for the forest heights A hideaway from the reaper’s scythe The misty dawn will welcome us all to the light Before this moment dies We’ll take the time to say goodbye We’ll die if we stay one more night We’ll head for the forest heights A hideaway from the reaper’s scythe The misty dawn will welcome us all to the light

Someone’s at the door! There’s a shadow on the floor Darker than the darkest night but sharper than a knife Seeing black and white! With an electric appetite Someone’s gonna die tonight He knows that the world is ending The horns siren and he’s not pretending His daughter left him in the town to die But the hate and the anger tells something just ‘aint right Arms of a saviour Embrace the broken spine of an angel Enlaced by chains in a tangle I see the scars tonight On an angel’s heart that you tied so tight Scars of a chainlace angel See the scars of a chainlace angel So travel back in time to heal the angel’s heart Not so long ago! His angel fell in love Slept beneath a brambled sky with an actor from above Something wasn’t right! Back at home that coming night In the violating candlelight She’s here with the last of the heroes A one way ticket on a path to primrose Your reeking misery, your thoughts draw flies So choose your absence or a hole between your eyes Arms of a saviour Embrace the broken spine of an angel Enlaced by chains in a tangle I see the scars tonight On an angel’s heart that you tied so tight Arms of a saviour Embrace the broken spine of an angel Enlaced by chains in a tangle I see the scars tonight On an angel’s heart that you tied so tight Scars of a chainlace angel See the scars of a chainlace angel So travel back in time to heal the angel’s heart

One December day The yuletide harvest withered away Now we’re here to stay I lie awake ashamed and afraid Can we survive the night? Are we gonna die tonight? Have to save us all From the harrowing howl of snow Watching death arrive And there’s nowhere left to hide I wanna rise and fly the flag of our land Mighty as a warrior for all I stand Gotta survive while we’re still alive To carry you home from the days you left behind Now the lights are out I’ve seen a face that I cannot explain Don’t deserve her love Cause I can’t ride the lightning above I thought I was strong I thought I had powers and magic How I was so wrong Just a fool in a film so tragic I wanna rise and fly the flag of our land Mighty as a warrior for all I stand Gotta survive while we’re still alive In their eyes I’m out of my mind Isolation taking its toll All the summer nights I was on my own Killing the pain was getting harder each week To hide my eyes and cry myself to sleep Someday you’re gonna be fine Don’t lose your heart’s desire Your awakening has arrived Cause your hope keeps us alive I wanna rise and fly the flag of our land Mighty as a warrior for all I stand Gotta survive while we’re still alive Seize the day and refuse to die We’re the ones with who you can fight All the winter nights to the morning lights Turn the page as another act starts And raise your glass to the power in our hearts

Six feet of snow suppress the moon's glow The panic leaves a crowded cabin so cold Fire up the stove and let the steam sing The only ladder out is the passion within The lights in your eyes ablaze so bright The stars align with the hope in your heart Awaken the sound of dreams on cold nights Of a time immortalized It's a magic moment a remedy for these days In an unknown place where an endless winter reigns Throw your fears on the stones tonight Let this sorrow sharpen the fire Throw your fears on the stones tonight It's where they were born and where we will die Those who preferred a frozen ghost town Woke in the sea of the casualties found We're still alive and party lakeside Thanks to a drunken polar joyride The lights in your eyes ablaze so bright The stars align with the hope in your heart Awaken the sound of dreams on cold nights Of a time immortalized It's a magic moment a remedy for these days In an unknown place where an endless winter reigns Throw your fears on the stones tonight Let this sorrow sharpen the fire Throw your fears on the stones tonight It's where they were born and where we will die It's a magic moment a remedy for these days In an unknown place where an endless winter reigns Throw your fears on the stones tonight Let this sorrow sharpen the fire Throw your fears on the stones tonight It's where they were born and where we will die

For the longest time The nights were calm Tucked away and far from harm The perfect life for everyone On a fateful day The toll grew higher No more stories by the fire An orphan stranded in the rain The fields of flowers and snow Hold their souls in slumber forever A candle burns at the stone But you cry in the dark because no one's home Lost in the stormy skies Tender and mild Beneath the canopy Mother's care nor Father's charm alive to light the darkest seas Rays of a fading star open your eyes, the trembling memories So I'll hold you near until it's time To fly above the treeline On a holiday Sleigh bells sway I hear them jingle all the way It's just a place where we once played From the sands of time You try so hard Rebuild your home and warm your heart It meets the tide and falls apart They stand beside you tonight With the lulling calm of a blanket You shiver and shake in my arms From the hopeless hole it leaves inside Lost in the stormy skies Tender and mild Beneath the canopy Mother's care nor Father's charm alive to light the darkest seas Rays of a fading star open your eyes, the trembling memories So I'll hold you near until it's time To fly above the treeline

It's been longer than I've been around It stands out in a crowded background I fall down at the gaze of the moon So I suffer to be just like you Can't take it off Got my mouth frozen shut Could you come warm me up Give me antifreeze Smile to me and melt the silence Try to see the joy inside you We're aflame in frozen nature Shatter the ice take me further into the night I've been burning the weeds from within The cold smoke of a jaded loner It sweeps over the gardens and mires The clean breeze of a brand new lifestyle Don't wanna stop Gotta pour one more shot Could you come warm me up Like antifreeze Smile to me and melt the silence Try to see the joy inside you We're aflame in frozen nature Shatter the ice take me further into the night The night's begun and you're craving for more We're all insane but it's hard to be sure Give me a sign and I'll open the door Cause now we're a part of a moment to die for You're the ones that I needed before I'm not afraid of it all anymore Follow me down and away from the dawn Cause now we're a part of a moment to die for So take your last chance You gotta go fast And let the night last The night's begun and you're craving for more We're all insane but it's hard to be sure Give me a sign and I'll open the door Cause now we're a part of a moment to die for You're the ones that I needed before I'm not afraid of it all anymore Follow me down and away from the dawn Cause now we're a part of a moment to die for Shatter the ice melt the silence forever tonight

Die Young 03:31
I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums Oh what a shame that you came here with someone So while you're here in our arms Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young We're gonna die young We're gonna die young Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young Young hearts, out our minds Runnin' 'til we're outta time Wild child's, lookin' good Living hard just like we should Don't care who's watching when we tearing it up (You know) That magic that we got nobody can touch (For sure) Lookin' for some trouble tonight Take my hand, I'll show you the wild side Like it's the last night of our lives We'll keep dancin' 'til we die I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums Oh what a shame that you came here with someone So while you're here in our arms Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young We're gonna die young We're gonna die young Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young Late nights, taking shots Heating up the sauna rocks Music up, gettin' hot Kiss me, give me all you've got It's pretty obvious that you got a crush (You know) That magic that you got, it's making me blush (For sure) Lookin' for some trouble tonight Take my hand, I'll show you the wild side Like it's the last night of our lives We'll keep dancin' 'til we die I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums Oh what a shame that you came here with someone So while you're here in our arms Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums Oh what a shame that you came here with someone So while you're here in our arms Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young We're gonna die young We're gonna die young Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

Scary are the times When you're staring at your life The paper's painted a shade you sanded, the shadow of your mind Tragic were the times When they never knew you cried The rainy window you watched alone was washed with others' woes And it shows Take a rake, sweep from the lake All the rust and the pain in a pile Walk a mile away from the track Til the backwaters turn black One last time To the darkwoods we will fly Silent thoroughfare, escape from this nightmare Once upon a time, five souls decided All the scars and broken hearts Shall smolder by the shower of the stars You're lost beneath the northern lights Beside the frozen streams No more sleepless nights from their shallow screams A star is born beneath the skies Blinds the eyes of narrow minds Signs a ride in a body bag And bids farewell this troubled land Walk a mile away from the light Cause the stars won't come back tonight One last time To the darkwoods we will fly Silent thoroughfare, escape from this nightmare Once upon a time, five souls decided All the scars and broken hearts Shall smolder by the shower of the stars One last time To the darkwoods we will fly Silent thoroughfare, escape from this nightmare Once upon a time, five souls decided All the scars and broken hearts Shall smolder by the shower of the stars

Part I – Melanchorale On a silent night It was five in the nocturne hour of nine It felt that there was no time As I stayed up watching over you all It wasn’t so long ago We were safe under humble lights of the halls And the ones of wisdom so kind Taught a literary fairytale of the world We’re off! The start of our lives Couldn’t get much further far from the worst And all the things that we learned Couldn’t save our mortal souls from the curse Was it really even that cold? Or were my eyes just closed? I’m so scared, feeling betrayed I feel that my life was just a cruel charade! It’s time for one last chance Before the final dance There’s a star in the sky Who’s calling your name And he wants you to make a change Your yard to roam and road to home They’re overgrown and you’re on your own I asked politely of what I had found Stay a timid child and play in the park I ask for hours but hear not a sound You’re a timid child, so stay in the dark It’s not a shame to die When you’re not a child You’re not allowed to cry Cause you’re not a child There’s a star in the sky Who’s calling your name And you’re ready to make a change Your yard to roam and road to home Were overgrown but you’re not alone Part II – Dead Winter Colossus Part III – A Cruel Angel’s Remorse It’s time For a star’s light must fade Many lightyears away If only we could stay Wave goodbye on a distant day But I still wonder why We can’t bind day and night We try until we die Laid to rest by ones left behind Final as the parchment that contained The prose of your lives Enchanted by the wild Gold and destined to never grow old You fall into the waves Of a grave endless sea Whatever will be will be Unforetold and forever frozen cold Tears as white as snow Fall and dampen your clothes As your eyes forever close And your neverland awaits When you arrive at the gates Final as the parchment that contained The prose of your lives Enchanted by the wild Gold and destined to never grow old The sun will never shine And thaw the ice at my door I’m not allowed to cry Frozen cold by the tears shed before Why must we die They tried but now it’s over Their finest moments remain A whisper in a frozen tale We all must die So write a story worth knowing Your soul forever will stay A whisper in a frozen tale Whisper in a frozen tale Whisper in a frozen tale Whisper in a frozen tale Whisper in a frozen tale
