Abandoned, Pleased, Brainwashed, Exploited

(written by Tony Kakko)

Wake up my child, hope is here, With the vengeance,
we have no time to bleed, My only world filled with fear.
I never saw the sower of the seed.

Where is the world we had, Who can ever save you and
your little lives, A Child guides a child guided child
A Child is never guilty, But you should not run free…

The Grave is open, let us pray without remorse
Empty the cradle with fire for them once again
Why not look through your fingers what they’ve done
Your own blood will clean the blood, for now the glory days are gone…

Time has come for everyone, to think what we have done
Open your eyes and see, it’s not a dream
You aim for a common goal, you are one with your foe
If only we could wake up soon and scream

Abandoned, pleased, brainwashed, exploited, madness has a reason
Throw money at the problem and it will remain
Your life has no value for them, “violate me(and) this never ends”
My child, I know, will then hate you too”

The Grave is open, let us pray without remorse
Empty the cradle with fire for them once again, tonight
Why not look through your fingers what they’ve done
Your own blood will clean the blood, for now the glory days are gone…

Now, when it seems that we have nothing to believe in
Maybe we should be waiting for the rock to come
For our children soon have nothing they should learn

The Grave is open, let us pray without remorse
Empty the cradle with fire for them once again
Why not look through your fingers what they’ve done
Your own blood will clean the blood, for now the glory days are gone…

Time has come for everyone, to think what we have done
Open your eyes and see, it’s not a dream
You aim for a common goal, you are one with your foe
If only we could wake up soon and scream

Time has come for everyone, to think what we have done
Open your eyes and see, it’s not a dream
You aim for a common goal, you are one with your foe
If only we could wake up soon and scream

Gravenimage

(written by Tony Kakko)

We met that night, when the sea ran high
And I craved for more of that nearlove experience
Those who the music hath then joined together,
Are now but asunder…

Remember me, when I lit the fire
To Keep us warm
On a cold winter morning
Now I pass through the moment
Can I still recognize a beautiful melody…

I play a note, but hear no sound
Have I lost my love or the wings I found
When I was young…

…and eager to please anyone who had time…

Needed to sing the very notes I heard
Had to stay in the shadows and seek for the loneliness
Nevertheless, the price was higher than I realized
I was to live alone, ready to make the sacrifice
Was I in love with you…

My old heart, little harder again
Once the light goes out, everything ends
It is time…
Ready to cause a scene, ready to make the sacrifice
Ready to play the note, ready to end the final show
The only thing I know

The Pain is here
To stay I fear
In my eyes
I can change one note and make you cry
In this state of mind
Silence is a crime

How can life be so feigned and cold
I’ve answered the call of every melody, lovingly
Did I find the answers to all my questions

Or a Gravenimage of me…

If I found the hidden fountain
Drank the wisdom from it’s deep
Would I have the time to save me
Would I have them both to keep

The Cage

(written by Tony Kakko)

A lifetime ago, with frozen eyes they closed the door
Suddenly I realised what locks are for
No trusting them anymore, Lights - are - out

Empty the stare, innocent and unaware,
Dragged out from my home, my lair
Earmarked me, hurt me, burned me

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend
I do not have another year in me, you’ve gotta set me free..

The Dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
Go around and see another side of the tree
Freedom has a meaning for me, howl with me

Fear in the dark, I advice you
can’t see the eyes, the glow behind you
… it’s my song they now sing to you
You stand no chance…

They’ll kill for me, steal back my freedom, set me free,
It’s my minions vs.thee
Fiery the vengeance, hate will drain me

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend
I do not have another year in me, you’ve gotta set me free..

The Dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
Go around and see another side of the tree
All I want is to be untamed and free, howl and (dream)

The dream is alive, with the moon on the hills every night,
Run around and see another side of the dream
Freedom has a meaning for me, you can’t tame me…

You will remember the day you crossed my path
Leave me without a guard and you feel my wrath
What you have done to me has made me bitter and cruel
I’ll see that all the hate you spread returns to you, you, back to you…

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend
I do not have another year in me, you’ve gotta set me free..

Chorus * 4

Silver Tongue

(written by Tony Kakko)

Mind, filled with fairytales, New ones every day, Don’t ask me anything
now, I know what you’re waiting the Curtain to fall

Names don’t mean anything, hear the lady sing, all human rights are now
cancelled, you need to handle the dreams of the day

You’ve hurt them many times, why apologize, they were the ones who were
wrong, what are they waiting? Give them a vail

Oh, be my valentine”, play along with an angel with silver tongue, play
with a stranger

I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain’t a lie
I am blinded by your revealing smile, I can only be guilty of an
innocent try
You think you are right, in a way, It is something I hear every day

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it’s all a game

Why can’t I leave today, and escape your funny ways, you are a one
person riot, far in the horizon, done for the day

I outsmart you, I am wise, I defeat you any way I like, but you got
me forced into a fall, I am your slave, down on the floor…

I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain’t a lie
I am blinded by your revealing smile, I can only be guilty of an
innocent try
You think you are right, in a way, It is something I hear every day

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it’s all a game of chaos
I do feel stronger now, Why am I still here with you
You and your silver tongue, why do I still play with you

I never saw anything so white, call me Ishmael, if it ain’t a lie
I am blinded by your revealing smile, I can only be guilty of an
innocent try
You think you are right, in a way, It is something I hear every day

I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it’s all a game of chaos
I cannot understand you, to me you live in a world of chaos
Life is a play you star on, to you it’s all a game you play with me

The Misery

(written by Tony Kakko)

I write the lines you want me to, with the words I dare to use of all
the ones that you have taught me, along the years

You cast a perfect shadow on the paper, fade away with sunlight, I fear
the way you know me, love can leave a stain…

You steal my only hope and make me stay awake another night,I wish you
bear with me, stay near me
When the Autumn leaves have fallen….
Solitude, my pain, the last thing left of me..

If you fall I’ll catch, if you love I’ll love, and so it goes, my dear,
don’t be scared,
you’ll be safe,this I swear. If you only love me

Seven lonely lies written on Deadwinter’s night, open the only book with
the only poem I can read
In blood I sign my name and seal the midnight with a tear, burn the
paper, every line for them I cried…

If you fall I’ll catch, if you love I’ll love, and so it goes, my dear,
don’t be scared,
you’ll be safe,this I swear. If you only love me

I am the Playwrite and you are my Crown, make me cry for your love, like
you’ve done many times, so I know
I can’t write these storylines without you, Lady pain, make me strong,
can’t we be together without them forever…

The words I write can only hurt you, sorry for the rain, thank you, my
only one, you gave me this pain
I leave you gently on the floor, take one step towards the door,
where’s the letter never written, goodnight now…

If you fall I’ll catch, if you love I’ll love, and so it goes, my dear,
don’t be scared,
you’ll be safe,this I swear. If you only love me

If you fall I’ll catch, if you love I’ll love, and so it goes, my dear,
don’t be scared,
you’ll be safe,this I swear. If you only love me

Victoria's Secret

(written by Tony Kakko)

The Light escapes her room tonight, every little moment tells her, now
it’s time Opening a new scar, closing the wounds with a knife, no more
crying in the lanterns light…

Leave with the first light, go when you still see the moon
Run for the sunlight, gate is now open for you

Dancing on the path and singing, now you got away
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret…

The Shades of darkness filled her life, In every single corner you can
not turn right. Night could pass for a day, in her lack of faith,
she let it all fade away.
Once more, a cry in the lanterns light…

Lost in the sunlight, leave, you will not see the moon
Walk for the first time, no one has waited for you…

Dancing on the path and singing, now you got away
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret…

Dancing on the path and singing, now you got away
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret…

…Life’s there for the ones who love to live and take it all, for it is free…

Dancing on the path and singing, now you got away
You can reach the goals that you have set from now on, every day
There is no way you would go back now, oh no, those days are past
Life is waiting for the one who loves to live, and it is not a secret…

Champagne Bath

(written by Tony Kakko)

Spare me your tiny talk, kneel down and wash my feet
Could someone, please, fly you away, out from your misery
Suck it all in, go ahead and take your daily overdose
Only do not come and demonstrate me how your mind explodes

Build yourself a Trojan horse, to stand out in the mass
Tuck it here before our eyes, then see what comes to pass
Well-cut version of the turmoil you have caused is on the news
To present a biased view, for our elevated pastime’s due

The sun won’t rise behind you anymore
Neglected, disconnected
You seem to need their power even more
One time more, to die for…

If ­ you- take one step back, you will see what they stuck in your eye
All the rights for your life are always implied
If I care what you say there, impersonated form of life
On your Lilo, limp and oily, list your wishes for the night…

The sun won’t rise behind you anymore
Neglected, disconnected
You seem to need their power even more
One time more, to die for…

I’m covered with gauze-like steel
My mind you’ve rotten to the core
High Apparitor, hear my appeal
This Thing is not to be allowed to breed

You must be deaf, dumb and blind
I loath you and your kind. Die.

You keep good company in a Champagne bath and smile with all your faces

Our day you grace by showing up in ev'ry place
Speed-dial one, call them, they come and make us see how once again
They mistreated you, this fame it sure must be a royal pain

The sun won’t rise behind you anymore
Neglected, disconnected
You seem to need their power even more
One time more, to die for…

I see the sun behind you yet once more

Broken

(written by Tony Kakko)

I was raised from a broken seed,
I grew up to be an unwanted weed
Ever faster the time exceeds me,
Little harder again to remember…you.

Held a torch for you, when lightning stroke me,
Once again, hope I died for the last time
Only one I have a thing greater than you,
Little light on the sky every night

Morning dew on the field, where I met you
I was frozen a year, couldn’t get through
Got a sign, not a scar, on my shoulder,
I am not quite the man you take me for…

Fell in love with the weekness within me
Force me the Ring and own me
Guess you found what you’d think would oblige me,
Little version of me to consume you…

I’d give my everything to you, follow you thru the garden of oblivion
If only I could tell you everything, the little things you’ll never
dare to ask me…

Do you really know me?…I might be a God
Show me that you care and have a cry
How do you see me?…as the one?
Can you see my blood when I’m bleeding
How can you love this exile, and how could I desire you
When my pain is my pain and yours is too…

On this deadwinter’s night
Darkness becomes this child
Bless this night with a tear
For I have none I fear…

Seven lifes of a man, passed before me
Seven graves, one for every Love I’ve had
Only once I have broken my so called heart
Only one made me see why they cry

Will I learn how to be one of you someday?
Will I still feel the eyes that behold me
Will I hear what you think, when you see me?
Will it tear me apart if you feel for me…

I’d give my everything to you, follow you thru the garden of oblivion
If only I could tell you everything, the little things you’ll never
dare to ask me…

Do you really know me?…I might be a God
Show me that you care and have a cry
How do you see me?…as the one?
Can you see my blood when I’m bleeding
How can you love this exile, and how could I desire you
When my pain is my pain and yours is too…

On this deadwinter’s night
Darkness becomes this child
Bless this night with a tear
For I have none I fear…

Little broken, always been, a part of you belongs to me
You were never mine to love, but this all has made it easy for me…

Burning feathers, not an Angel, Heaven’s closed, Hell’s soldout
So I walk on the Earth, behind the curtains, hidden from everyone,
Until I find a new life to ruin again…

On this deadwinter’s night
Darkness becomes this child
Bless this night with a tear
For I have none I fear…

The Rest of the Sun Belongs to Me

(written by Tony Kakko)

I have no feelings, there is no more sunlight
The darkest hour is now here
I must have lost it for good, staying here without a fight
Out in the cold and windy night
Still waiting for a sign

I know there is still a day for me
One short moment is still enough for me
Bring me life with your ray of light
If only I found a small piece of the fallen sun…

I wait for the day that will come
Wait for the sunlight, wait for the one
You can do what you want with the sea,
But the rest of the Sun belongs to me

The winter fell on me and ended my life
The darkest hour is now here
Yet one more frozen month, my Hell awaits me
Out in the cold and windy night
Still waiting for a sign

I know there is still a day for me
One short moment is still enough for me
Bring me life with your ray of light
If only I found a small piece of the fallen sun…

I wait for the day that will come
Wait for the sunlight, wait for the one
You can do what you want with the sea,
But the rest of the Sun belongs to me

I wait for the day that will come
Wait for the sunlight, wait for the one
You can do what you want with the sea,
But the rest of the Sun belongs to me

I know there is still a day for me
One short moment is still enough for me
Bring me life with your ray of light
If only I found a small piece of the fallen sun…

I wait for the day that will come
Wait for the sunlight, wait for the one
You can do what you want with the sea,
But the rest of the Sun belongs to me

I wait for the day that will come
Wait for the sunlight, wait for the one
You can do what you want with the sea,
But the rest of the Sun belongs to me

The Ruins of My Life

(written by Tony Kakko)

The Land was then young, I was fighting for it like everyone
Ready to die for the cause, for my King, for my Lord

You were my reason to live, to fight another day
You were the only one for me, and you were only for me

Another year I would be gone
The war was leading us so far apart
I built a house to keep you there
Waiting for me, waiting…

No-one remembers my face nor my name
In a dream, I’d stay here forever
Headstone on my grave, words carved in vain
All these wounds only heal when I’m home

The Taste of their blood in my mouth, and the scent of victory
Scarred my soul for life, This man was not me

Love is a game for the weak to play, they said
I loved and love made me many times stronger

Another year I would be gone
The war was leading us so far apart
I built a house to keep you there
Waiting for me, waiting…

No-one remembers my face nor my name
In a dream, I’d stay here forever
Headstone on my grave, words carved in vain
All these wounds only heal when I’m home

Everything ends…everything dies…
Now I know the Legends only lived in his lies.”

My Long and winding road, river and trees by the hills we lived on
The ruins of my life I find, a signetring on the ashes,
I know my Lord betrayed me, my reason to live was taken away
I carry my loved one to the hills we loved, for the last time…

I close your eyes, kiss you goodbye
The only one who ever loved me
I’m crushed inside, darling, my life…
It shall end here…

Headstone on your grave, words carved in vain
Now the darkness covers me…

Draw Me

(written by Tony Kakko)

Blessed with an eye to see things as they are, will you draw me?
Up there on the wall, looking down to us all, you never saw me…
I found a pen, and I outlined a life
You’ve never cried, I think I saw a tear in your eye

Your eyes tell the tale, I will not ask again
Now I see what you’ve lost, nothing is quite the same
By the love of my Heart, cut my drawing in half,
For I think I’m like you… Should you draw me…

Waiting for my evenfall

Farewell, my passion, you slowly turn pale
I will long for your warmth, made me feel safe
I will not draw again, ‘til I know it’s my time
I have lived a long life, should I draw me…

Morning’s here, I must have …failed
