Track Name: Through the Long Way
First the cradle
then the grave
as sure as the souls just flow
from birth to the death
Denial is poison growing jaded
their truth is a lie in disguise
A tainted future
darkened, blurred like
fallen suns through stained glass

But all through the long way
You can escape
A greater truth
is waiting there
Oh this knot´s so tight
I can´t scarcely breath
the weight of sorrow
is clouding over me
Release your hold on me

But then I cry and scream
when no one hears
Some thoughts just lie too deep
my words are lost and scattered
in wild winds

Show me!
Show me just a fleeting glance of light
Let me leave all things behind
Guide me
there is nothing left for me to stay
Lead me just one step ahead
All through the long way
All through the long way

The greatest truth
no shortcut is safe

But there´s a path that only few can see
A wondrous Otherworld of secrecy

Show me and unleash that
flaming and fierce light
now unfolding from inside
And save me! Oh save me
just before my reckless
heart may rend
Lead me just one step ahead

and unfurl!
Don't be sad
Unfurl! and don't be sad
Unfurl...

and live through the long way!
live through the long way!
Track Name: Off the Lane
A warning for a curious girl...

I got lost off the lane
where the woodlands get dark
and skeleton hands
hang from bare and twisted branches
swaying in a sinister dance
they swirl, they swirl
knotting their shadows over me spiraling

Call me! Call me from the Dark!
oh I shall find no rest until you come!
Call me! Call me by my name!
that mossy stone
shall never be my grave!

I just followed their trail
into their hidden lair
Oh broken heart
come and play with us -they said
We can gather all your shards -they sung
Join them so you can feel complete
a whole again
All you must do is to decline
the light of sun

Oh catch me! catch me now!
don't let me fall
into a world I'll never be
I never really was
Tangle me and lift me in your arms
Shelter me and cloak me
with your gnarled dead boughs
now that I'm lost
off the lane

A warning for all curious girls
led astray
A warning for all curious girls
led astray

I should have gone through the long way
You should have gone through the long way
No shortcut is safe
