Track Name: War
Grey of morning takes over night
I keep my way, but still feel the fright
Cold and wind, dirt and dust
No strength to go, but I must

Lonesome road for lonesome men
With no beginning, without an end
Sometimes time seems standing still
I'm just scared of changing scenes

Ruined church without a priest
The witness of war or the witness of peace
I see the shadows in the distance
'Tis a fierce beast in his nest

Am I a hero or a cheat
I still breathe, but start to bleed
I see my name on the grave
Is it someone's evil game

Am I sleeping or still awake
Forced to stop to take a break
I'm halfway to life, but I'm halfway to death
Halfway to freedom, but still in a mess
Track Name: Sea
Let me take you, babe
Where all the rivers fall
It's never twice the same
Oh really, I've been told

Our love's a history
Or is it really true?
When you are close to me
And I am close to you

Seagulls on the rocks
Remember when we met
Shadows in the docks
Revive the times we had

Let me take you, dear
Where all the rivers flow
Where our love is real
And lasts from long ago
Track Name: Soothsayer
From miles away
A vision came to me
No one hears my pray'r
Few need to foresee

Living for the false
Paying for the past
Closed within our walls
Believing all will last... last forever
