Track Name: Only Silence
I stood before the door of the old house,
My eyes full of tears and heart full of hope
The wind brought delightful laughter of children
And tender evening sun warmed my memories
Years had passed and I came back
The door opened but no one welcomed me
...only silence

The day I was leaving,
I showed my friends an arrogant smile
Suddenly came the faceless chill
It poisoned my belief
and hope disappeared
I couldn't hide love in my heart
because it was too cold....
I lost my belief, my hope
and at last – my love
And then came endless days of joy,
long years of lies and hate
And what have I now?
...only silence

Die letzten Funken vom Sommer, der vergangen ist,
Glänzen helltönnend im Sternenstaub
im Himmel hoch oben und im Wasser unten
Sie plantschen leise unter unseren Pfoten

Nur ein Augenblick in der Welt der Herzlosigkeit
So gebrechlich und so stark
Manchmal können wir uns nicht halten,
Wir erheben uns nur um zu fallen

Nur Erinnerung und Schmerz bleiben unberührt
Alles Andere ist vorbei... ich bin wieder allein
Alles was ich hab`, ist Vorahnung des Nichts
Wenn fliegen die Momente in die Ewigkeit
Und meine Gegenwart wird zur Vergangenheit
Tag für Tag

Only the silence of the old house
Can reflect true life I live
Only the shadows of the old house
Can remind me everything, but they won’t forgive
Track Name: So leicht zu glauben
Meine Haut vergass deine Hände
Als ob ich dich verraten hätte
Das Licht erlisch in deinem Schlafzimmer
Weil ich es nicht mehr betrete

Wo bist du jetzt, dies möchte ich wissen
Wahrscheinlich fliegst du wie das herrlichste Vögelein
Und in bunter Fantasienluft
atme ich deinen süssen Duft ein

Ich warte ungeduldig auf den tiefen Schlaf
Um dich auf der Traumstrasse zu treffen
Bekleidet schlicht und doch so prächtig
Lass uns auf einander leidenschaftlich werfen

Es scheint so wahr, es ist so leicht zu glauben
Die Lippen sind noch zart wie Rosenblütenblätter
Und die Augen strahlen Lust und Lebenskraft
Das macht mein Erwachen noch härter

Lass mich alle vergessene Antworten geben
Lass mich diesen Moment immer wieder erleben
Küss mich zärtlich
Küss mich zum letztenmal
Der Morgen graut

The warmest bed is chilling cold
Without your tender cheek pressed to mine
I wonder if our hearts meet
In the fantasy air of kisses and wine

Without her scent the bed is chilling cold
I wonder if our hearts meet
In the fantasy air of kisses and wine
When my heart looses its final beat
Track Name: Necropolis
Many have walked upon this path before me.
Many have been tricked, but I was not.
Here many spirits are haunting me.
I feel the untouchable fear.
It is empty but my eyes still see,
although they are covered by tears.

I still hear the screams of sorrow.
This is the beauty that fills my soul.
In our hands we carry the ancient flame.
The most powerful weapon of all times it is.
We walk in the footsteps of our ancestors.
They who once proudly came here to die.

We are at the same place, but yet another age.
Certain things will always remain the same.
We are now falling into other souls.
They are so many but yet alone.
Everything we pass are scary piles of pain.
That who has been will be burned into our brains.
Unbreakable are the chains of our memories.

Never will I be the one who denies to see.
Still I am able to touch the fear.
Screaming are the thoughts who call upon my soul.
Love is not all and will not come to you here.
Here the silent sorrow tells the whole story.
Now I can see that very spot to myself.
Nothing about this sacred place have I forgotten.
Track Name: Nevermore
You won’t care for me when I’m weak
You won’t cover me when I’m cold
You won’t speak to me when I need
Just a word... just one word

I am so tired to be alone
I wait for you, but you won’t come
No longer... Nevermore
