In A Dream
(Music: Edlund, Ekstrand, Petersson)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

In a dream
.
I'm climbing the clouds
I touch a subdued sky
With my bare hands

In a dream
Let me drag you through my world
My kingdom for your thoughts
What is in your mind

When the night is to rouse your desires
In a dream
And the wind of darkness whispers
In a dream
Be prepared to leave your reality
In a dream
Wake up to a game called life
In a dream

In a dream
I stand naked on a hill
I am looking down at me
Trying to touch my cold skin

In a dream
In a pool of blood
Evil is as pure as innocence
Evil is as pure as love

When the night is to rouse your desires
In a dream
And the wind of darkness whispers
In a dream
Be prepared to leave your reality
In a dream
Wake up to a game called life
In a dreamback to top
Clouds
(Music: Petersson, Ekstrand, Edlund)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

If I walk on the water today

Will people worship me tomorrow
Will my name be spread faraway
To give people both strength and sorrows

Look into my crystal ball
I have got news for you my dear
There is a God inside you all
But he is hidden in your deepest fear

Step outside the clouds that hide you
The black clouds that cover you

Listen fools, a dream I send
If you make the madness end
Else I shall a nightmare call
To do harm within you all

You call me Satan, I call me sin
I breed in you but you have locked the door
Open yourself and you shall win
And you'll not even need me anymore

Step outside the clouds that hide you
The black clouds that cover youback to top
Smell Of Incense
(Music: Edlund, Petersson)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

The smell of flowers, the smell of grace

If I could only find such a wonderful place
The place not known before you die
A paradise above the skies

The smell of incense takes me high
Way up high where eagles fly

If I close me eyes I see it clear
The visions are whispering in my ears
The smell of pain, the smell of death
The odour that is my last breath

The smell of incense takes me high
Way up high where eagles flyback to top
A Caress Of Stars
(Music: Petersson, Edlund)
(Lyrics: Edlund, Hannah Stjarnvind)


I was your fear and you were my fate

I wanted you near but I bred your hate
You left me for dead, deep down in the mud
With scars on my head, in my heart and my blood

On my head, in my heart and my blood
On my head, in my heart and my blood

"A caress of stars
A silhouette in the twilight sky
The daybreak sets on silver seas
My name echoes through Crimson hills

On the horizon, where seas meet clouds
A scenery shimmers beyond reality
I glance a world as a recent lit star
A am swallowed by universe"

A vacant eye caught the last moonlight
A wish to die to be shining bright
As a star to light your way
To where we are not lead astray

Where we are not lead astray
Where we are not lead astray

"A caress of stars
A silhouette in the twilight sky
The daybreak sets on silver seas
My name echoes through Crimson hills

On the horizon, where seas meet clouds
A scenery shimmers beyond reality
I glance a world as a recent lit star
A am swallowed by universe"

Deep in death
Wrapped in the morning beauty
Comes close my love
My dearest sister and friendback to top
The Sleeping Beauty
(Dedicated to Hannah Stjarnvind)
(Music: Hagel, Edlund)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

Alone I sit, I wonder why

You dream of love and so do I
But in your sleep you cannot see
This pain which is always haunting me
What I need I'll never feel
This world is for me unreal
So I drink to darkness with a candle lit
And through the whole night alone I sit

The sleeping beauty
She stops the bleeding
She stops the bleeding in my soul
She is fresh air in this sticking world

The more I drink, the more I see
That suicide could be the key
To the place called paradise
Where pain not dwells, not hate nor lies
But if I look beyond all this
I reckon something I would surely miss
Because in my dreams I rule my life
And the sleeping beauty is my wife

The sleeping beauty
She stops the bleeding
She stops the bleeding in my dreams
She is fresh air in this sticking world

Forever Burning Flames
(Music: Ekstrand, Petersson)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

Rip out my heart and put it on the table

Read my life in the blood
I am waiting to answer your suffering pleas
As deathly silence does curtail my remains

In the river of tears runs blood from my eyes
Yet another morning is emptying my veins
Alone I seek, a tiny groove I stalk
In the river Lethe I slowly drown

Empty screams
To fill a new world
A place I've missed

Bodies are courses where maggots are turning
Souls are flames that are forever burning

Raging flames cover my corpse
Far from identity and rememberance
But the shades of my mind are still carrying
Colours of most beautiful kind

Around the cenotaph I am scattered
I am in the air you breathe
Let us forget me for awhile
And I bet you'll remember me no more...

Empty screams
To fill a new world
A place I've missed

Bodies are courses where maggots are turning
Souls are flames that are forever burningback to top
The Scapegoat
(Music: Ekstrand, Petersson, Edlund)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

If you are trying to interpret me

You're truing to put me down, you'll see
The dreams I have, you do not know
Don't make me the scapegoat on your insipid show

...Then I turn to you and say

"I worship Lucifer"

Friends turned out to be "Never been friends"
Liars don't listen, do not comprehend
Make up great stories, I'm the principal character
Hand in hand with "Evil" and "Sinister"

...Then I turn to you and laugh

"I worship Satan"

My dreams were not worth it, I was told
By the people who want me to release what I hold
For all of you I sing this song
If you don't understand, my laughs will last long

...And I shall turn to you and say

"I worship the Devil"back to top
Undressed
(Music: Edlund, Petersson)
(Lyrics: Edlund)

Not aware of what you've buried

You feel comfortable that way
You're living in a smaller world
That is sometimes far too small
Then you'll come to me
Asking to share my world with you
And maybe sometimes I do
But never again for my own sake

The girl opened her mouth
I opened my veins
The girl opened her heart
I opened a door to another world

I opened a door to another world

I opened a door to the entirety
I opened a door to the entirety

Lonely in a cell
I still hear the voices of the wind
And rule at times great areas
Greater than you'll ever know
This moment leaves no time to think
The past is always limited
But in my dreams dwells everything
And never again shall I let you in

The girl opened her mouth
I opened my veins
The girl opened her heart
I opened a door to another world

I opened a door to another world

I opened a door to the entirety
I opened a door to the entirety
