Track Name: A Former Life
I, I’M DREAMING OF OPEN SKIES
I REMEMBER A FORMER LIFE

THERE IS A SHELTER FOR OUR DARKEST THOUGHTS
WHERE ALL THE FEARS OF MAN ARE KEPT AWAY INSIDE A PLACE
IT STILL REMAINS LOCKED UP IN CHAINS
DEEP DOWN THE WOODS AROUND THAT LOST PLACE
THE BLACKEST EYES WILL FOLLOW AT THE SAME PACE

YEARS FROM THEN
MILES FROM THERE
I'M STANDING TALL
BORN AGAIN
TRUST ME
TAKE MY HAND
AND FEEL THE BEAT OF LIFE
RUNNING THROUGH
THE VEINS OF THOSE
WHO ARE PURE OF HEART
OUR CLEAR MINDS
RACING ONWARD TO A FUTURE
SHINING SO BRIGHT
MY
MY DREAMS ARE OF OPEN SKIES
OF THE SPACE BETWEEN THE LINES
I REMEMBER A FORMER LIFE
FROM ANCIENT TIMES

SO WE'LL BRING BACK TO LIFE OUR FORMER PRIME
AND IN THESE MOMENTS WHEN WE'RE FLAWED AND INCOMPLETE
YOU'LL SEE US RISE BACK WITH THE BEAT
ALL DOUBTS CAN FADE
OUR MINDS WERE MADE
UNCONFINED BY TIME AND SPACE
BUT IF YOU FAIL TO SEE THAT YOU ARE FREE
YOU'D RISK YOUR OWN DEFEAT

EYES FULL OF LIES
WORDS LEFT UNHEARD

MOVE

LET GO OF YOUR FORMER LIFE
BUT KEEP THE SCARS TO REMIND

YEARS FROM THEN
MILES FROM THERE
I'M STANDING TALL
BORN AGAIN
TRUST ME
TAKE MY HAND
AND FEEL THE BEAT OF LIFE
RUNNING THROUGH
THE VEINS OF THOSE
WHO ARE PURE OF HEART
OUR CLEAR MINDS
RACING ONWARD TO A FUTURE
SHINING SO BRIGHT
MY
MY DREAMS ARE OF OPEN SKIES
OF THE SPACE BETWEEN THE LINES
I REMEMBER A FORMER LIFE
FROM ANCIENT TIMES

I STILL REMEMBER A FORMER LIFE
FROM ANCIENT TIMESI STILL REMEMBER A FORMER LIFE

WE'VE TRAVELED SO FAR
Track Name: Colossus
WINDS CHASE WITH SHADOWS
TO FORM A FLOW
AND ONCE AND FOR ALL
TO EXTINGUISH THE FIRES, THE CANDLES
AND NOW YOU'RE ALL BLOWN OUT

CONCERN YOURSELF
WITH CREATION
CAUSE AND EFFECT
IT IS THE ORIGINAL SOUND
THAT CONTAINS
ALL OTHER SOUNDS, ALL WORDS, ALL LANGUAGES
THIS WORLD MUST HAVE AN ARCHITECT
IT HAS A HEART
SKIP A BEAT FOR EVERY LINK IN THE SILVER CHAIN
TO THE MOON AND BACK

EVEN IF WE'RE FORGOTTEN
TIME WON'T EVER END
AND WE MAY BE TWISTING
WE MAY BE TURNING
BUT WE'VE ALL LEARNED THROUGH
THAT IT ENDS WHERE IT BEGAN

EVEN IF WE ARE FORGOTTEN
DREAMS CAN NOT DESCEND
'CAUSE THEY'RE LIVING THROUGH
WHAT'S MADE OF YOU
BUT WHAT ARE YOU MADE OF?
WHAT ARE YOU?

DEVOID OF ALL PROPERTY
COLOSSUS
I REMAIN
COLOSSUS
AUMKARA - NEITHER SHAPE NOR SHAPELESS
COLOSSUS
BEAUTY, GOODNESS, TRUTH
COLOSSUS

MORE THAN NOTHINGNESS
EVERYTHING EXISTS
IN A LATENT STATE
POTENT
EMBRACING TIME AND SPACE
CONSCIOUSNESS TAKES ITS FORM
DIVINE, BUT VIRTUAL

EVEN IF WE ARE FORGOTTEN
TIME WON'T EVER END
AND WE MAY BE TWISTING
WE MAY BE TURNING
BUT WE'VE ALL LEARNED THROUGH
THAT IT ENDS WHERE IT BEGAN

EVEN IF WE'RE FORGOTTEN
DREAMS CAN NOT DESCEND
'CAUSE THEY'RE LIVING THROUGH
WHAT'S MADE OF YOU
BUT WHAT ARE YOU MADE OF?
WHAT ARE YOU?

TAKE THIS LIFE
COLOSSUS
ALL-ENCOMPASSING
COLOSSUS
THE ESSENCE - A, U, M
COLOSSUS
I AM BEAUTY, GOODNESS, TRUTH
COLOSSUS
Track Name: If You Feel the Same
I KNOW YOU'RE NOT GIVING IN
SO COME ON

CAN YOU FEEL THE LIFE WE CREATED
FOLLOW THE VIBES INSIDE YOUR HEAD
OUTSIDE THE STATED NARROW RANGE WHERE YOU BLED
THE OLD AGE, THE OLD AGE HAS FADED
THE NEW AGE CAME UNAIDED

WITH ALL DOUBTS ASIDE
TONIGHT IS SOAKED IN SORT OF CANDLELIGHT
WITH ALL DOUBTS ASIDE
SO TAKE A LOOK INSIDE
A BEDTIME FABLE IN A WORN-OUT BOOK
I AM INSIDE
I'M INSIDE
TAKE A LOOK

AND IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN ME
I WON'T TRY TO HOLD YOU DOWN
THEN I CAN TRUST YOU HOLD THE KEY, TAKE MY HAND
TAKE MY HAND, 'CAUSE I CAN'T BEND

WHAT A MIND COULD SURVIVE INSIDE A REALITY
FOREVER LOST IN TIME

LIFE'S OVERRATED
IT'S JUST A DREAM AND WE'RE NOT REAL
IT'S BEEN DEBATED
WHAT CAN IT REVEAL?
A LIVING METAPHOR FOR SOLACE
FRATERNITY
WITHOUT ABSORPTION
UNION WITH NO FUSION

A LIFETIME TO TASTE
AND NOT A MINUTE TO WASTE,
SO IF YOU'RE FEELING THE SAME
COME FORTH
THIS IS OUR GAME
YEAH
THIS IS OUR GAME

WITH ALL DOUBTS ASIDE
TONIGHT IS SOAKED IN SORT OF CANDLELIGHT
WITH ALL DOUBTS ASIDE
SO TAKE A LOOK INSIDE
A BEDTIME FABLE IN A WORN-OUT BOOK
I AM INSIDE
I'M INSIDE
TAKE A LOOK

AND IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN ME
I WON'T TRY TO HOLD YOU DOWN
THEN I CAN TRUST YOU HOLD THE KEY, TAKE MY HAND
TAKE MY HAND, 'CAUSE I CAN'T BEND
THEN I CAN TRUST YOU TO HOLD THE KEY
HOLD THE KEY
I CAN TRUST YOU HOLD IT, HOLD IT TIGHT
HOLD IT TIGHT
Track Name: Forgotten Traces
I RAISE MY HEAD ABOVE THE FIELDS
WEARY CLOUDS DESCEND UPON ME
SO LONG TO ALL I EVER CHERISHED
BROKEN REMNANTS LIE

DUST IS BLACK
SOAKED WITH BLOOD
AND THEIR ACCUSING EYES ARE FIXED ON ME
PILLARS OF THE EARTH SEEM TO CRACK
AND NOW I KNOW THERE'S NO COMING BACK

I'M PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN

ALL THE FACES
ALL THE SMILES
FORGOTTEN TRACES
OF WHAT WAS ONCE SO DEAR
FORGOTTEN TRACES
OF WHAT WAS ONCE MINE

I MOURN FOR ALL MY DEAD AND LAMENT THE UNBORN
THIS BATTLE LEFT THEIR BODIES
SCATTERED, BROKEN, NUMB AND SCORNED
WITH ALL MY BANNERS TORN I WALK AMONG THE RED

I NEVER STAYED
THE SPIRIT OF MY HOMELAND BECKONS ME
I WALKED AWAY
FROM ALL THE THINGS I HELD SO DEAR

FOR ONE BRIEF MOMENT THE WIND WHISPERS OF HOPE
AND PROMISES TO CARRY ME AWAY
AND THEN IN SPITE OF EVERYTHING
I SPIRAL THROUGH THE CLOUDS
DESPERATE TO FLY
SO I ASCEND

THE GROUND FALLS AWAY
THE GROUND FALLS AWAY

UNTIL I START TO FALL
FALL AWAY, FALL AWAY
AGAIN I SEE
THERE'S NO ONE HERE BUT ME

MAN
MARTYR
FOOL
FATHER
SON
SOLDIER
ALONE
I BREAK DOWN AND
SUFFER
FOR ALL MY
BLIND AMBITIONS

WITH ALL MY BANNERS TORN I WALK AMONG THE RED
MY TIME HAS PASSED
AND THOUGH AT LAST I FEEL AS THOUGH I'M DEAD.
I MOURN FOR ALL THE SCORNED AND LAMENT THE UNBORN

I NEVER STAYED
THE SPIRIT OF MY HOMELAND BECKONS ME
I WALKED AWAY
FROM ALL THE THINGS I HELD SO DEAR

ALL THE FACES
ALL THE SMILES
FORGOTTEN TRACES
OF WHAT WAS ONCE MINE

THE SPIRIT OF MY HOMELAND BECKONS ME
