Elysium (2011)



1. Darkest Hours
These frantic memories
They bring me down, tormenting peace
The darkness drowns me
I'm restless without sleep
When day breaks, I'm still awake,
I recall my mistakes


I'll be never alone, never again, never alone,
I'll be never alone, never again, never alone...


When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.


I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!


Those frozen memories
Laid out for me, all I can see
The night surrounds me
Destroying harmony
What lies beneath, demising me?
I've lost my purity


I'll be never alone, never again, never alone,
I'll be never alone, never again, never alone...


When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.


I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!


[Solo]

When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I've left my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.


When all my hope is gone,
I'm waiting for the dawn
I raise my head and find my own way out of the dark
I leave my past behind
I'm reaching for the light
I'm not afraid to live my life - I'll take what is mine.


I'll make my way through the darkest hours of my days!


2. Under Flaming Skies
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]


The wind is blowing
There's ashes in the air
The heat is flowing
You stare in despair


Hear the warning
The times are changing fast
The Earth is crying
With a thundering blast


Hear the ground speaking
The powers unknown, a release
The ground's speaking
The freezing past


Wheel of the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Wheel of the night
Hide from the light
The winds are burning
You're under flaming skies


The sacred fire
Is spreading, destroying all
The exploding spire
Will finally fall


Hear the ground speaking
The powers unknown, a release
The ground's speaking
The freezing past


Wheel of the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Wheel of the night
Hide from the light
The winds are burning
You're under flaming skies


[Bridge]


Wheel of the night
A shelter from light
The skies are burning
Wheel of the night
Hide from the light
The winds are burning
You're under flaming skies


Wheel of the night, the skies are burning
Wheel of the night, the winds are burning
You're under flaming skies



3. Infernal Maze
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]


You faded away
And woe is all that remains
And I have gone astray
My mind full of theory and states


I'm carrying a seed of insanity
A burden of faded memories


delusion, destruction, salvation
Go on without saying


Hate in this creed
Awareness so numb this time
Underneath the skin
You're still drooling in


And what I've come to find
A state of mind
I need to find
A way to carry it


For my soul will finally be free
But first I need to bare it instead:


Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an internal game
Infernal Maze
The demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.


[Solo - Matias / Jens / Matias / Jens / Duet]


Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an internal game
Infernal Maze
The demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.


Infernal Maze
I'm lost within an internal game
Infernal Maze
The demons are calling out your name
Infernal Maze.


Infernal Maze
These demons, these demons,
Haunting me, Infernal Maze
Infernal Maze
Infernal Maze.



4. Fairness Justified
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]


I thought I could not find
Someone who's so alike
The way you think, I feel it in my heart


It is so hard to see
What's happening to me
Two souls united that can't be apart


All these lonely nights and days
Let me start


Waiting for a light, this feeling
I have been denied, I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine, awareness purified
I make it through the night, am I dreaming?
Waiting for a sign, I've seen it
Heavenly divine, so fairness will finally
Be justified


If there's a past life
I know you've been all mine
You are forever the one divine


All these lonely nights and days
Let me start


Waiting for a light, this feeling
I have been denied, I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine, awareness purified
I make it through the night, am I dreaming?
Waiting for a sign, I've seen it
Heavenly divine, so fairness will finally
Be justified


[Solo - Matias]


I watch you when you sleep
And listen as you breathe
I'm close to you and keep you warm


Waiting for a light, this feeling
I have been denied, I'm redeeming
Heavenly divine, awareness purified
I make it through the night, am I dreaming?
Waiting for a sign, I've seen it
Heavenly divine, so fairness will finally
Be justified



5. The Game Never Ends
[Lyrics and Music by Jens Johansson]


Concord and tears from industrial giants,
Our pollution's counting for nothing
Graveyard obssessions and shallow confessions,
The game never ends in a draw.


An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away without cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.


Fragile and cold by the side of a mountain,
Big hopelessness bearing to promise,
Brothers and sisters of metal together
We'll conquer the darkness as one.


An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away without cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.


[Solo - Jens]


An eternal horizon that reaches the sky
When we're standing together, we cannot ever die
And we're chasing the darkness away without cry,
Never die, never die,
We never die.



6. Lifetime In A Moment
[Lyrics and Music by Lauri Porra]


From the dark, I watch you go away
I will never see you...
Again


Every passing day prolongs my pain
I am slowly fading...
Into the void


Fades without a sound
A sound that no one cares to hear
A second round to live your life
Just passed away


Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment


Seize the say, don't let it slip...
Away
Cherish every moment...
Before it's gone


Fades without a sound
A sound that no one cares to hear
A second round to live your life
Just passed away
Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment


[Solo - Matias]


Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment


Moment in a lifetime
Lifetime in a moment



7. Move The Mountain
[Lyrics and Music by Jens Johansson]


Would you move the mountain,
Would you build a tower,
Would you drink the sunshine,
Like a wilted flower?


Would you waste that hour
If you knew this fullmoon would be
The last one you'd see?


Would you gaze in wonder
While the world was turning,
While the moon made quiet
All the years of yearning?


Would the flame keep burning,
If you knew the powers that be
Could set you free?


Don't know why you had to go
In the storylight, a flame in the darkness,
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.


Swam around in circles,
In a meandering ocean,
Had a dream of safety
That's lost emotion.


Could a faded notion
Make you find your way back to shore,
Looking for more?


So we head for safety,
But we never get there
And I brush the shadows
From a staring nightmare.


On the road to nowhere,
Would you help me carry my cross
And set me free?


Don't know why you had to go
In the storylight, a flame in the darkness,
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.


[Solo - Jens]


Don't know why you had to go
In the storylight, a flame in the darkness,
And we'll never really know
If you'll ever see me again.



8. Event Horizon
[Lyrics by Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]


[Computer:] Warning! Event horizon ahead. Warning!


Standing outside
In darkness my breath is steaming
The skies open wide
I hear the silent screaming


Deep in the dark, somewhere in space
Spinning around, leaving no trace


Nothing escapes
And the boundaries been breached
All matter and shape
Destination's reached


The star dies, collaping in its core
End of the journey, it won't be seen anymore


I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Life gives away, there's no concern
A force that carries the event horizon lies ahead


[Solo - Matias / Duet / Jens / Duet]


[Computer:] Alert! Destination's reached


I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Life gives away, there's no concern
A force that carries the event horizon lies ahead


I can see the point of no return
And when the light is slowly turning to red
Life gives away, there's no concern
A force that carries the event horizon lies ahead


[Computer:] Warning! Imaginable impact. Please evacuate immediately.
Counting... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1



9. Elysium
[Lyrics By Matias Kupiainen and Timo Kotipelto. Music by Matias Kupiainen]


[Part 1]


I've never felt like this before
Am I awake? Am I drifting?
There's a hole in the sky
Am I alive? Did I survive?


Broken pictures on my wall
A story of fallen heroes
Now stare ahead with their blind eyes on
A lost horizon


Sometimes the dream is sublime with you
I fear in my mind that ever
I'm reaching this feeling
It's misleading me away from you
Tonight, I find what I've been searching for
To go look for my wings once more


I'm not afraid anymore
I'm not afraid anymore


[Solo - Matias / Jens]


Sometimes the dream is sublime with you
I fear in my mind that ever


I'm reaching this feeling
It's misleading me away from you
Tonight, I find what I've been searching for
To go look for my wings once more


I'm not afraid anymore
I am ready to fall
I'm not afraid anymore


[Part 2]


I am lying on the frozen ground alone
I got lost on my way, my time is up
I'm gone


I need to find the key
To eternal life and see
The joy, the smile,
The overwhelming love of God
Is what I need


Give me a sign, and shoe me the way
To the sacred place


I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms


Your shadow lurking in the corner of my eye
I'm losing sense of what's real
and what's a lie


I need to find the key
To eternal life and see
The joy, the smile,
The overwhelming love of God
Is what I need


Give me a sign, and shoe me the way
To the sacred place


I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms


Eternal calling at your fame was not mine
Melody this falling lie


I feel it burning with me ahead
The earth is turning to red
I'm staring at the flaming skies
To not have to fight
A chance goes right by


[Solo - Jens / Matias / Duet]


I can hear you calling my name
From the distant skies
I am holding a falling angel
In my arms


I am holding a falling angel
in my arms


[Part 3]


This life has been too long
There's hope everywhere I go


Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let this soul be free


Eternal light
Brain dead, my eyes


Pain and sorrow
Joy will follow
Now in turn
Elysium


[Solo - Jens]


Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let your soul be free


Be afraid no more,
Just take my hand,
I'll guide you through the storm
We're finally home


Do you believe in hope and faith
Or eternity?
In the end, you will see
Let your soul be free


Be afraid no more,
Just take my hand,
I'll guide you through the storm
We're finally home


We'll be home


[Solo - Matias]



10. Castaway
[Bonus track]


I've been lost far too long,
Need to find my way back home.
Dig a hole and hide inside,
Live to see the morning break.


Just a wayward soul,
Played the last card, lost it all.
All is gone but one remains,
In your hands I place my life.


Take me in,
Wash away the sin.
Make me whole again,
In your sanctuary.
Hideaway,
I'm your castaway.
Let me fall asleep,
Wake up to brighter day.


Take me in,
Wash away the sin.
Make me whole again,
In your sanctuary.
Hideaway,
I'm your castaway.
Let me fall asleep,
Wake up to brighter day.


Take me in,
Wash away...
Make me whole again,
In your sanctuary.
Hideaway,
I'm your castaway.
Let me fall asleep,
Wake up to brighter day.



11. Last Shore
[Bonus track]


I will call for you,
Said the man to the fool as he rode,
Out with his gold in his hand.
Finally I know the truth, thought the fool to himself,
I really understand.


Paradise calling me,
After life, eternity.
No more life, the divine set me free...


Gloria, (Gloria),
Is awaiting me there.
Gloria is my destiny.
Gloria, (Gloria),
Is awaiting me there.
Gloria is my destiny.


Many years have passed,
No one came, not a sign from the gods,
No one believes the end of the world.


Paradise calling me,
After life, eternity.
No more life, the divine set me free...


Gloria, (Gloria),
Is awaiting me there.
Gloria is my destiny.
Gloria, (Gloria),
Is awaiting me there.
Gloria is my destiny.
I come home...


Gloria!



12. Hallowed
[Bonus track]


Once they countdown the final dream,
Life will never be the same.
Due to blindness they cannot see,
That we cannot starve this way.


They will stop when it's too late,
Just to realize, you cannot eat money.


Whoaaaaaa.
Time is running out,
Runaway (Runaway) (Runaway),
World is burning down.


When the earth turns to black from greed,
When the last drop of water has been spent.


They will stop when it's too late,
Just to realize, you cannot eat money, so...


Whoaaaaaa.
Time is running out,
Runaway (Runaway) (Runaway),
World is burning down.


[Guitar solo]


Whoaaaaaa.
Time is running out,
Runaway (Runaway) (Runaway),
World is burning down.


Time is running out,
Runaway (Runaway) (Runaway),
World is burning down.
