Track Name: Life Is Today
I drew a picture of my mind
With dead colors, silver lined
I would give the world
To go back again
To go back once again

Now look at these weary eyes
Staring sternly and despise
All the things I left
The way I was back then
I missed my ways

All is ashes, all is dust
When the heart begins to rust
And the mind will turn to black
I am here to take it back tonight

Chorus:
Take a step toward the light
Add color to black and white
The past will not return
But life is today

And the whole world is your stage
In the dawn of a new age
The past will not return
But life is today

Regretting how my days were spent
It’s not too late to make amends
But does it matter now?
Does it really matter?

Because the clock is ticking by
Drawing nearer the good-bye
If only I could return to
The way I was back then

I’ll be like the morning sun
Rising from the dead of night
I will take back what I lost
and I will laugh and I will cry

From the ashes I’ll be made
In the dust I’ll live again
And all these wasted years
I am here to take them tonight
Track Name: Wheel of Time
A little push, a tiny spark
Can light up your heart and banish the dark
A gentle touch, a word of hope
May stop the wheel of time

There’s a lost generation
Locked up in consternation
It lives in isolation
Howling at the moon

Right from the heart of darkness
It strikes as ruthless violence
Dead eyes are staring
And it’s driving me insane

There is a fire
That burns in me
A strong desire
That’s still waiting to break free

A passion keeps me
Awake at night
Is there’s still reason
To keep standing?

What I lost, what I gained
In this life, through this pain

Is it worth fighting for?
I’m spinning on the wheel of time

I’ve been walking down this road before
Been falling till I hit the floor
I’ve been wishing for the past to stay
Afraid of any other way

There’s no salvation and no turning back
Incarceration in a world turned black
If you don’t take life for what it’s worth
You’re spinning on the wheel of time

There’s an indicting murmur
Its words are packed with fervor
The grip is getting firmer
Tearing me apart

Fed with a peerless anger
The wheel is spinning faster
It is a cruel master
Keeping you in chains

It rips right through me
Tears flesh from bone
Deeper and deeper
I fall into the unknown

A passion that’s still
Hidden within
There is still reason
To keep standing
Track Name: Zero Division
They look for shelter from the storm
Which ravaged, vast, which left us torn
Still reminiscent of the
Glorious days

The streetlights flicker in the streets
Frequency matching their heartbeats
Given up, given in
Unwilling to fight

Back when the city used to breathe
With thugs and robots on their knees
Surpassed by heroes with
Silver strings

The smell of violence in the air
The city’s tremblin’ in despair
The strongest remain
Silent tonight

Rock and roll anthems
The bands used to play
Are unheard today

We are born to end
The hapless fairytale
Fighting for our cause
Until the end

Our dream shall not remain
A broken symphony
Out of ashes, we will rise
Destined to fight

Zero Division

One score years ago came the plague
That put our faith under attack
The heroes pride was soiled
Put to shame

And soon our saviors were replaced
By shady figures without taste
Ferocious demons that walk
In plain sight

We will carry the torch
We will fly the flag
We are reborn
To save our rock

We are born to end
The hapless fairytale
Fighting for our cause
Until the end

Our dream shall not remain
A broken symphony
Out of ashes, we will rise

Destined to fight
Patrolling tonight
Burning inside

Zero Division
Track Name: Starchaser
Life’s a game and he plays
With no chance to win
He’s got need for the speed
Could it be a sin?

Headlight eyes, twice the size
Staring past you
Pupils widened, he approaches the

Speed of light, every night
Longing for the steel
Shifting gears, grinding hard
Could this be real?

He’s got a thing for the sting
Liquid fuel running through his veins

There’s reason why
Blood stains his eye
A final chance
To reach the sky

He’s a starchaser
Life burns fast
When you’re speeding on the fast lane

A silver blazer
Revvin’ it up, revvin’ it up
Tonight

4 AM, quarter gram
Puts him back on track
All will stir to a blur
When he feels the smack

First a rush, then a crush
There’s a demon
Laughing frantically

The higher the flight
The deeper the fall
»Still no reason to stop at all«, he thinks

»If there’s life
You oughta live it till it’s done«
Till it’s done

Open your eyes
A million ways lead into darkness
No compromise
It will only bring you to your knees

There’s a way out of here
Follow your heart
It will pave the way

Take my advice
It’s a long long road ahead

It’s a thunderstorm
Beneath your skin
A flash of light
Burning through your eyes

It’s an ordeal
The pain within
You must go through hell
To reach paradise
Track Name: Desolation Road
A broken mirror in front of me
My shattered reflection is all I see
Shards of the man I used to be

Desperation swallows pride
It eats me up from the inside
Red anger’s flowing down the drain
Leaving nothing but pain

But I’m still alive
Without you

I’ve been burning in the brightest light
I’ve been drowning in a sea of hope
I’ve been freezing on a summer’s day
I’ve been suffocating

I opened my heart for you to see
You filled it up with misery
You crawled inside and claimed it as yours

My conscience eating away at me
Nothing’s how it used to be
Been sitting idly by the phone
I should’ve known

That love can ignite
A flame gone out

I’ve been burning in the brightest light
I’ve been drowning in a sea of hope
I’ve been freezing on a summer’s day
I’ve been suffocating

I’ve been starving for another chance
It’s a passion that will drive insane
I’ve been dying in your arms tonight
Walking down Desolation Road

A broken mirror in front of me
My shattered reflection for you to see
Shards of the man I used to be
But love can ignite
Without you
Track Name: Vendetta's Calling
He’ll douse the torches that set the whole world aflame
Voices are cheering yet they’re calling him insane

Inside an iron armor
There is a heart that beats unflinchingly with love

The city drags you deep within its maze
Each step a leap of faith

The silent knight
Will roam through dust and rainy skies
The blackened night
Is where he strikes with fear

He’s always here
For the loving and just
One you can trust
To save the world

Over and over again

Vendetta’s calling for a monster in the night
And when the sign’s alit he soars into the light

On wings of destiny he
Instills the fear into the hearts of the lost

Death has burned its mark within his gaze
Each step a leap of faith

To live in harmony
He will never see the light of day again
