Covenant: Northern Light (2002)

Monochrome

Monochrome reflections
Climbing up the walls,
Down below your radar
Things are going on.

All along the tunnels,
Through the underground,
We prepare for leaving,
Waiting for the moon.

Beats above your highness,
Coded to be safe,
Round and round in circles,
We are coming out.

Dance away the meters,
Through the muddy waters,
We are submariners,
Close to foreign shores.

Pride in sleepy hollows
Doesn't make us happy.
We are modern prophets,
Amplified by you.

Scientific networks
Spies behind the curtain.
We defend the future and
Give it back to you.

Break the loop of habit,
Time for your return,
Back among the living,
Welcome and goodbye.

Birds in little cages
All believe in freedom.
We provide solutions
For a better living.

We command the system,
Calling all receivers.
We are noisy people
For a better living.


Call The Ships To Port

A billion words ago
The sailors disappeared.
A story for the children
To rock them back to sleep.

A million burning books
Like torches in our hands.
A fabric of ideals
To decorate our homes.

A thousand generations
The soil on which we walk.
A mountain of mistakes
For us to climb for pleasure.

A hundred clocks are ticking,
The line becomes a circle.
Spin the wheel of fortune
Or learn to navigate.

A choir full of longing:
We call our ships to port.
The countless lonely voices
Like whispers in the dark.

A second of reflection can
Take you to the moon.
The slightest hesitation can
Bring you down in flames.

A single spark of passion
Can change a man forever.
A moment in a lifetime
Is all it takes to break him.

A fraction of a heartbeat
Made us what we are:
A brother and a sister
For better or for worse.

A billion words ago
They sang a song of leaving.
An echo from the chorus
Will call them back again.

A choir full of longing:
We call our ships to port.
The countless lonely voices
Like whispers in the dark.

Tonight we light the fires.
We call our ships to port.
Tonight we walk on water
And tomorrow we'll be gone.


Bullet

Time is like a bullet from behind.
I run for cover just like you.
Time is like a liquid in my hands.
I swim for dry land just like you.

Time is like a blanket on my face.
I try to be here just like you.
Time is just a fiction of our minds.
I will survive and so will you.

We are the only ones right now that are celebrating,
And we are joining hands right now.
We are the only ones right now that are suffocating,
We are the dying ones right now.

As the water grinds the stone,
We rise and fall.
As our ashes turn to dust,
We shine like stars.

Kisses on the dancefloor in my past,
I need some comfort just like you.
Beating like a bass drum time goes by.
I want the last dance just like you.

Drowning in the flood of morning light,
I'm only human just like you.
Do you hear the city waking up?
I will survive and so will you.

We are the ones...
The only ones...
We are the ones...
The dying ones...
We are the ones...
The only ones...
We are the ones...

We are the only ones right now that are celebrating,
We are the dying ones.
We are the only ones right now that are dying,
And we are joining hands.

As the water grinds the stone,
We rise and fall.
As our ashes turn to dust,
We shine like stars.


Invisible & Silent

I'm tricked by your smile,
Want to be forgiven,
Waiting for the battle,
Aching for belief.

But your answer is wrong,
And my spirit is broken,
Like choirs in the winter,
Singing out of key.

I am silent,
Invisible to you
While I count the days gone by...

I am silent,
Invisible to you
While I shape the things to come...

I am silent,
Invisible to you
While I count the days gone by...

I try so hard
To fight for an illusion,
Holding my breath,
Biting my tongue.
I try to cope,
So give me a reason,
I'm waiting for help.

I'm trapped by my guilt,
Want to be forgotten,
Tired of the noise,
Aching for relief.

But your anger is gone,
And my silence is golden,
Like fires on the water,
Drifting out of reach.

I am silent,
Invisible to you
While I count the days gone by...

I am silent,
Invisible to you
While I shape the things to come...

I am silent,
Invisible to you
While I count the days gone by...


Prometheus

This is the sound of our days,
Burning the light of our nights.
This is the sign of our times,
From my mouth into your eyes.

This is the beat of our praise,
Setting the pace of our stride.
This is the line that we cross,
With my torch I light your way.

When the time is right,
We raise our heads and look.
When the bridges burn,
We leave our homes in flames.

This is the noise of our blood,
Telling the age of our nerves.
This is the price of our lies,
From my lips into your breath.

This is the voice of our past,
Turning the tide of our lives.
These are the tears that we cry,
With my tongue I touch your mind.

When the time is right,
We raise our heads and look.
When the bridges burn,
We leave our homes in flames.


We Stand Alone

Stand before the gates and watch metropolis,
Empires come and go, we live forever.
And eternity is in your hidden eyes.
Take my broken wings, teach me to fly again.

I stand alone...
We stand alone...
I stand alone...
We stand alone...

Down the empty streets, head for the seven hills,
Vestal virgins dance, we steal the fire.
Battered columns stand as silent monuments,
Deep inside their dreams I see your memories.

I stand alone...
We stand alone...
I stand alone...
We stand alone...

We share the last champagne and watch necropolis
Still, and so let's leave her to her silent walks.
The sun of Rome is set and our day is gone,
A kiss, a taste of red from your open lips.

I stand alone...
We stand alone...
I stand alone...
We stand alone...


Rising sun

My eyes grow darker,
Can barely see your face.
Yesterday I tried to belong.
You know I won't stay that long.

In a time of lust and liars
I learned to trust my own desires.
Touch me, don't be ashamed.
I just don't know how to play that game.

In pride and grace
We rise with the sun,
With the morning light.
We just run and run.
The good old days,
That imaginary place...
With the rising sun
We forget and we embrace.

My eyes grow darker.
Guide me now.
Can barely see your face,
Just lead the way.

My days grow longer,
Can barely find my trace.
One more day I try to be strong.
You know I won't last that long.

For a time I feed the fires.
I search and seek while time expires.
Hold me, I'm so afraid,
I just don't know how to keep this flame.

In pride and grace
We rise with the sun,
With the morning light.
We just run and run.
The good old days,
That imaginary place...
With the rising sun
We forget and we embrace.

My eyes grow darker.
Guide me now.
Can barely see your face,
Just lead the way.


Winter Comes

So the winter comes,
Where we belong.
I feel the cold
Within my heart.
I see the night
Deep in your eyes.
The winter comes at last.

Here the winter comes
Again...

So the winter comes,
Where we grow strong.
I hear your words
Melt like snow on my skin.
I taste your kiss:
It tastes like snow.
The winter comes to last.

My tongue is frozen to the ground.
I cry alone for times to come.
It beats the daylight out of me.
The winter comes to seize the day.

Here the winter comes
Again...


We Want Revolution

Kill your television,
Steal the satellites,
Download all the codes,
Catch the public eye.

Shout your manifesto,
Bring your megaphone,
Stay below the radar,
Join the underground.

I want to car, skid and crash
Into the brave new world.
I wanna ride.

We want revolution,
Constant evolution.
Start your engines,
Blow your fuses,
Burn the bridges for the future.
This is our solution.

Time for retribution.
Bring your target down,
Beat the jungle drums,
Flaunt your decadence.

Underground Resistance.
Keeps you entertained,
Feed your hungry mind,
Shape the things to come.

I want to car, skid and crash
Into the brave new world.
I wanna ride.

We want revolution,
Constant evolution.
Start your engines,
Blow your fuses,
Burn the bridges for the future.
This is our solution.


Scared

I feel, I feel, I feel so scared...
I feel, I feel so sad...
I feel so sad...
I feel, I feel so scared...


Atlas

I'm a thousand people
From day to day.
We are all air-born,
Without ground control.
I call my name in the maelstrom.

I'm not giving in,
So don't you give in.
I'll be your Atlas,
And carry our world.

But I guess,
I won't save the world today,
I'm just trying to survive.
And perhaps I'll dream again,
But I will find my cross,
And I will take us home.
But I guess,
I won't save the world today.

I'm a thousand people
From day to day,
Blues and so untitled
On the road to where
I'm losing my name in the maelstrom.

But I'm not giving in,
So don't you give in.
I'll be your Atlas,
And carry us home.

But I guess,
I won't save your world today.

But I guess,
I won't save the world today,
I'm just trying to survive.
And perhaps I'll dream again,
But I will find my cross,
And I will take us home.
But I guess,
I won't save the world today.
