Track Name: The Divine Light
a light is a light - I can see it from here
a light I can feel within
it might be a guide - to get rid of the fear
to breath when the air gets thin

a light is a light -  I can touch it from here
until it'll burn my skin  (the heat will burn my skin)
no I won't deny - when the ending is near 
a light for a new begin

a light is a life is alive (3X)

a light makes me blind - I will follow the night
in the shadows of the moon
a light way too bright - when the feeling is right
when I'm hiding myself in the gloom

a light hard to find - such a beautiful light
for the ones who need the most
a light in my eyes - overwhelmed by the sight
finally we'll meet at the close

blame me for the ones I tried to save (could not save)
hate me for the ones I tried to love (could not love)
love me for the ones I learned to hate (tried to hate)

when all is flowing - all is glowing
life  - grows towards the (light)

a light is a life is alive (3X)

when/if you see me one last time - promise me -  to look away
'cause you should know I'll be around - like a shadow on a sunny day
and in the corner of your eye - I will be - a glimpse in the dark
for you - I'll take the blame - and bear the scars

I'll embrace all my hopes on the edge of time and space
(I'll) erase all what's left of me now
I'll embrace all my fears on the edge of time and space
...and grow towards the light

LIGHT!

a light is a life is alive (3X)
Track Name: Antidote
with one eye closed - I can see - so much more
finally - I'm starting to - reach the core
I took a knife - cut out my heart - let it bleed
just to prove - that after all, I was deceived

when it comes - it will be quick - in due course
from the depths - of the dark - no remorse
mesmerize - hold your breath - one last round -  a final blow
I'll give in - when all is clear and there's nothing left to show

a perfect remedy - misunderstood
did you really believe that we just simply could
neutralize the poison on remote - spilled antidote

disconnect - the mind and soul - for the best
to get rid of - the heavy weigth - off my chest
in a blink - I saw the tear -  falling down - on the ground - hit the floor
the silence caused a deafening sound 
waste away - bit by bit - wash away - all of it - wide awake
you never wanted me to (be) lead astray

a perfect remedy - misunderstood
did you really believe that we just simply could
neutralize the poison on remote - spilled antidote

I've got my eyes on the matter, (I'll) keep the danger in sight
for the worst, for the better - I've got nothing to hide from you
I know this time I'm up to it (3x)

what if confusion is the only solution to survive 
i'd rather have a clear vision (3x)
when I'm off for the dive

time is of the essence
it will devour and crush us
until silence falls 
and all will start anew

we've built temples for our brains
and made ruins of our hearts
in remembrance of
the losses of our soul

believe is for the weaker 
and for the uninformed
fear is for the strong
won't you please enlighten me

I'll embrace this danger
cause now I'll see it through
that underneath the skin 
we're so alike

behind the masks - we're so alike
you & I - we're so alike

a perfect remedy - misunderstood
did we really believe that we just simply could
a perfect remedy - misunderstood
(why) did we really believe that we just simply could
neutralize the poison on remote
spilled antidote
