Once

DARK CHEST OF WONDERS

Once I had a dream

And this is it

Once there was a child`s dream

One night the clock struck twelve

The window open wide

Once there was a child`s heart

The age I learned to fly

And took a step outside

Once I knew all the tales

It`s time to turn back time

Follow the pale moonlight

Once I wished for this night

Faith brought me here

It`s time to cut the rope and fly

Fly to a dream

Far across the sea

All the burdens gone

Open the chest once more

Dark chest of wonders

Seen through the eyes

Of the one with pure heart

Once so long ago

The one in the Big Blue is what the world stole from me

This night will bring him back to me

Fly to a dream…

WISH I HAD AN ANGEL

I wish I had an angel

For one moment of love

I wish I had your angel tonight

Deep into a dying day

I took a step outside an innocent heart

Prepare to hate me fall when I may

This night will hurt you like never before

Old loves they die hard

Old lies they die harder

I wish I had an angel

For one moment of love

I wish I had your angel

Your Virgin Mary undone

I`m in love with my lust

Burning angelwings to dust

I wish I had your angel tonight

I`m going down so frail `n cruel

Drunken disguise changes all the rules

Old loves…

I Wish…

Greatest thrill

Not to kill

But to have the prize of the night

Hypocrite

Wannabe friend

13th disciple who betrayed me for nothing!

Last dance, first kiss

Your touch my bliss

Beauty always comes with dark thoughts

I wish…

NEMO

This is me for forever

One of the lost ones

The one without a name

Without an honest heart as compass

This is me for forever

One without a name

These lines the last endeavor

To find the missing lifeline

Oh how I wish

For soothing rain

All I wish is to dream again

My loving heart

Lost in the dark

For hope I`d give my everything

My flower, withered between

The pages 2 and 3

The once and forever bloom gone with my sins

Walk the dark path

Sleep with angels

Call the past for help

Touch me with your love

And reveal to me my true name

Oh how I wish

For soothing rain

All I wish is to dream again

My loving heart

Lost in the dark

For hope I`d give my everything

Oh how I wish

For soothing rain

Oh how I wish to dream again

Once and for all

And all for once

Nemo my name forevermore

Nemo sailing home

Nemo letting go

Oh, how i wish…

PLANET HELL

Denying the lying

A million children fighting

For lives in strife

For hope beyond the horizon

A dead world

A dark path

Not even crossroads to choose from

All the bloodred

Carpets before me

Behold this fair creation of God!

My only wish to leave behind

All the days of the Earth

An everyday hell of my kingdom come

The 1st rock thrown again

Welcome to hell, little Saint

Mother Gaia in slaughter

Welcome to paradise, Soldier

My 1st cry neverending

All life is to fear for life

You fool, you wanderer

You challenged the gods and lost

Save yourself a penny for the ferryman

Save yourself and let them suffer

In hope

In love

This world ain`t ready for The Ark

Mankind works in mysterious ways

CREEK MARY’S BLOOD

Soon I will be here no more

You`ll hear the tale

Through my blood

Through my people

And the eagle`s cry

The bear within will never lay to rest

Wandering on Horizon Road

Following the trail of tears

White man came

Saw the blessed land

We cared, you took

You fought, we lost

Not the war but an unfair fight

Sceneries painted beautiful in blood

Wandering on Horizon Road

Following the trail of tears

Once we were here

Where we have lived since the world began

Since time itself gave us this land

Our souls will join again the wild

Our home in peace`n war`n death

Wandering on Horizon Road…

Traduzione inglese

“I still dream every night

Of them wolves, them mustangs, those endless prairies

The restless winds over mountaintops

The unspoilt frontier of my kith n`kin

The hallowed land of the Great Spirit

I still believe

In every night

In every day

I am like the caribou

And you like the wolves that make me stronger

We never owed you anything

Our only debt is one life for our Mother

It was a good day to chant this song

For Her

Our spirit was here long before you

Long before us

And long will it be after your pride brings you to your end”

THE SIREN

A lady with a violin playing to the seals

Hearken to the sound of calling

Who tied my hands to the wheel?

The zodiac turns over me

(Come to me)

Somewhere there my fate revealed

I hear but how will I see

I tied myself to the wheel

The winds talk to my sails, not me

(Come to me)

Somewhere there my fate revealed

I hear but how will I see

DEAD GARDENS

The story behind the painting I drew is already told

No more tearstains on the pages of my diary

Tired but unable to give up since I`m

Responsible for the lives I saved

The play is done

The curtain`s down

All the tales are told

All the orchids gone

Lost in my own world

Now I care for dead gardens

My song is little worth anymore

Time to lay this weary pen aside

The play is done

The curtain`s down

“Where are the wolves, the underwater moon

The elvenpath, the haven of youth

Lagoons of the starlit sea

Have I felt enough for one man`s deed?

Or is it time to challenge the Ancient of Days

And let the virgin conceive”

All the tales…

ROMANTICIDE

Godlove and rest my soul

With this sundown neverending

The feel is gone yet you ain`t gonna see me fail

I am the decadence of your world

I am an eider covered in oil

Happy hunting, you double-faced carnivore

Tell me why

No heart to cry

Hang me high

The music is dead, the amen is said

The kiss of faith is what I beg

A loving heart `n soul for sale

Tell me why…

Leave me be

And cease to tell me how to feel

To grieve, to shield myself from evil

Leave me be

Od of lies is killing me

Romanticide

Till love do me part

See me ruined by my own creations

Leave me be…

Dead Boy`s alive but without sense

I need a near-death experience

Heart once bold

Now turned to stone

Perfection my messenger from hell

Wine turns to water

Campfires freeze, loveletters burn

Romance is lost

Lord, let me be wrong in this pain

Temporary pain, eternal shame

To take part in this devil`s chess game

Spit on me, let go, get rid of me

And try to survive your stupidity

GHOST LOVE SCORE

We used to swim the same moonlight waters

Oceans away from the wakeful day

– My fall will be for you –

My fall will be for you

My love will be in you

If you be the one to cut me

I`ll bleed forever

Scent of the sea before the waking of the world

Brings me to thee

Into the blue memory

– My fall will be for you –

My fall will be for you

My love will be in you

If you be the one to cut me

I will bleed forever

Into the blue memory

A siren from the deep came to me

Sang my name my longing

Still I write my songs about that dream of mine

Worth everything I may ever be

The Child will be born again

That siren carried him to me

First of them true loves

Singing on the shoulders of an angel

Without care for love n` loss

Bring me home or leave me be

My love in the dark heart of the night

I have lost the path before me

The one behind will lead me

Take me

Cure me

Kill me

Bring me home

Every way

Every day

Just another loop in the hangman`s noose

Take me, cure me, kill me, bring me home

Every way, every day

I keep on watching us sleep

Relive the old sin of Adam and Eve

Of you and me

Forgive the adoring beast

Redeem me into childhood

Show me myself without the shell

Like the advent of May

I`ll be there when you say

Time to never hold our love

– My fall will be for you –

My fall will be for you

My love will be in you

You were the one to cut me

So I`ll bleed forever

KUOLEMA TEKEE TAITEILIJAN

Kerran vain haaveeni nähdä sain

En pienuutta alla tähtien tuntenut

Kerran sain kehtooni kalterit

Vankina sieltä kirjettä kirjoitan

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Sinussa maailman kauneus

Josta kuolema teki minusta taiteilijan

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Oman taivaan tänne loin

Anna minun päästä pois

Traduzione Inglese

Only once I could see my dream

Didn’t feel the smallness under the stars

Once I got bars in my cradle

As a prisoner I write a letter from there

My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am

In you is the beauty of the world

of which death made me an artist

My Lord, to you, let me become what my child thinks I am

My own heaven I created here

Let me get away

HIGHER THAN HOPE

Time it took the most of me

And left me with no key

To unlock the chest of remedy

Mother, the pain ain`t hurting me

But the love that I feel

When you hold me near

The hopes were high

The choirs were vast

Now my dreams are left to live through you

Red Sun rising

Drown without inhaling

Within, the dark holds hard

Red Sun rising

Curtain falling

Higher than hope my cure lies

Passiontide

An angel by my side

But no Christ to end this war

To deliver my soul from the sword

Hope has shown me a scenery

Paradise poetry

With first snow I`ll be gone

The hopes were high…

Red Sun rising…

Your death saved me

Red Sun rising…

LIVE TO TELL THE TALE

(bonus track)

A single grain can tip the scale

Amidst the burden the scale will prevail

Showing what`s worth being here

Storyteller by a hearth of stone

A white little creature purring me

My childhood kingdom gone in time

The islands filling my mind with blue

The one in speacial, heaven`s court

All the joy unforgiven by this task

An errant soul, homeless and foul

All gone but the will to

Live to tell the tale

The days are filled with anxiety

Frustration, one right note a day

Where to find a perfect tune

Just do the work and take a step back

All the joy…

An errant soul…

Dark chambers of my mind

Locked around the neck of my love

None of you understand

And it doesn`t matter

To a broken marionette like me

An errant soul…

Oh how I hate mykind

Have it all

Yet wish to die

Not mykind but the kind as you are

Saints in Cain`s mask

I love you

I just did

WHITE NIGHT FANTASY

(bonus track)

Enchantress came to me and said:

Meet me at the lake tonight

I hunmed this song to the white

Through the shroud of snow I saw

Paradise

Peace

No more lies

Crestfallen soul

Rest for this night

Love is here

Right here under my wings

I dream of wolves with them I run

For me she lengthened the night

I am home

I am in peace

Crestfallen soul

Rest for this night

Love is here

Right here under my wings
