Track Name: The Sky Is Burning
Angels sing of the end
Like a siren's song
The sky is burning right before my eyes
Metamorphosize the face of all we know

The world we know will fall apart
The sky above is burning up
And when the ocean's bloody red
We'll go where angels fear to tread
The end of joy and suffering
The end of love and misery
Oh God above, please save our souls
Before the Devil takes his toll

Ashes falling like snow
Can you hear my voice?
The sky is burning right before my eyes (right before my eyes)
Angels prophesize the end of all we know

The world we know will fall apart
The sky above is burning up
When everything is set ablaze
I'll find you at the end of days
The end of joy and suffering
The end of love and misery
Oh God above, please save our souls
Before the Devil takes his toll

Angels surround me
Singing a requiem
Do we deserve to be condemned?
Track Name: Maria
"Maria..."
The unfamiliar way you said my name
When you stripped away
The only thing that covered up my shame

When I'm holding onto you, my body is impaired
In the end, the weight of all my sins are all I have to wear

Broken flowers never bloom
In this God-forsaken room
Show me that the end is near in sight
And take my life

How do I move on
When there's a part of you that's deep inside me?
Scream my name and let me fall away
Maria
You will never set me free
There is nothing left of me
Take my life before I realize
Maria

Stay away...
The way you fucked me left a bitter taste
On this bed I lay
To bring me from this night without a day

Even though you're gone already
I'm never quite alone
Just as long as this small seed you've planted
Continues to grow

Save me from my broken dreams
One last hope inside of me
Deep within the secrets of the night
It comes to life

How do I move on
When there's a part of you that's deep inside me?
Scream my name and let me fall away
Maria
You will never set me free
There is nothing left of me
Take my life before I realize
Maria

You will never understand
The way I put your hand
Upon my face
You were my saving grace
My fallen angel... Fall away from me

I'll move on until the day that I can smile again
Someday I'll be strong enough to live
Maria
Why am I still holding on?
Why am I still living on?
Someday soon my reason will be clear
Maria
Track Name: Nocturne ~ Angel's Nightmare (Album Ver.)
In your darkest fantasies,
You're my angel
A lovely light
Set ablaze in a lascivious fire
Love me in your nightmare

Night falls
A shadow crawls into your bed
Close your eyes and say good night
You'll never leave my sight
My angel of the night

Let go of what you think is wrong and right
As long as you are by my side
You have nothing to hide
Only one thing to lose

Sleep tight, my darling
I'm calling out your name
From within a dream, can you taste the sins of my heart?

In your darkest fantasies,
You're my angel
A lovely light
Set ablaze in a lascivious fire
Love me in your nightmare
If the stars come crashing down
Let them burn away
Until my dying day
You will never be alone anymore
Fill me with your sins tonight

Day break
Shadowed by your every ire
Go down and I will take you higher
Sweltering like fire
Your devil of desire

Let go
Your curtain of security
Has all but fallen helplessly
You're bare as I can see
But don't be ashamed

Sleep tight, my darling
Your heart is safe with me
As I come inside, I can taste the sins of your heart

In your darkest fantasies
I'm your devil
Your ecstasy
Spread your wings and I will set you free
Love me in your nightmare
When the stars come crashing down
Close your eyes my love
I'll never let you go
When you kiss me there's no fear anymore
All your darkest sins belong to me tonight

In your darkest fantasies,
You're my angel
A lovely light
Set ablaze in a lascivious fire
Love me in your nightmare
If the stars come crashing down
Let them burn away
Until my dying day
You will never be alone anymore
Fill me with your sins tonight
Kiss me in your nightmare
Track Name: Sleeping Beauty
Sighing as you lie beside me
Up above, the stars are sparkling
Are you dreaming of me darling?
Let me satiate your hunger
Let me wake you from your slumber
Let me be your prince tonight

Sleeping Beauty, won't you wake up?
Are kisses not enough
To bring you back to life again?
La la la, la la la ♪
Sleeping Beauty, won't you be mine?
Until the day I die
I'll sing you back to life again
La la la, la la la ♪
My Sleeping Beauty

Sighing as I touch your face
Only in a one way embrace
Cold lips with my fingers I trace
In your slumber, I admire
Perfect beauty won't expire
You're the only princess I desire

Sleeping Beauty, won't you wake up?
Are kisses not enough
To bring you back to life again?
La la la, la la la ♪
Sleeping Beauty, is this a dream?
You're just too good to be real
Let me stay here by your side
I can wait forever
Sleeping Beauty, won't you wake up?
I must be falling in love ♥
Falling in a dream with you
La la la, la la la ♪
Sleeping Beauty, won't you be mine?
Until the end of time
Let me be your shining star
Wherever you are
My Sleeping Beauty
Track Name: Set Me Free (Album Ver.)
Holding tightly to you
Afraid of tomorrow
Don't close the door
Take me far, far away
Away from the sorrow
My hand in yours

Trapped in a velvet prison
Stranded and left for dead
I'm running out of room to run away

Stop and stay, please send me away
Break my chains and set me free
Give me hope
Show me the light that's waiting at the end

Please... I need you tonight
I need you to save me
From all the darkness

I'm losing my direction
My own worst enemy
Is standing right between you and me

Stop and stay, please send me away
Break my chains and set me free
Give me hope
Show me the light that's waiting at the end

Set me free tonight I'm breaking
Set me free tonight I've fallen
Track Name: Broken Flowers (Album Ver.)
Will you still be here tomorrow?
I want you to stay
These flowers will never grow
If it rains every day
Even if it rains tomorrow
Don't say goodbye
I'll save you from all the teardrops
That fall from the sky

Broken flowers in the fall
You're here, but I'm behind a wall
Oh, silent roses in the spring
For you so quietly they sing

Will you still be here tomorrow?
I need you to stay
These flowers will never grow
If it rains every day
Even if it rains tomorrow
I won't say goodbye
I'll save you from all the teardrops
That fall from the sky

Broken flowers in your tears
I'm here, but clouded by my fears
I'll never be sober
Your kisses taste like wine
Don't let it be over
You know we've still got time...

If it rains tomorrow
I'll still be yours
I'm never gonna let you go
Don't cry anymore
However far away
I'll stay by your side
Just hold on tightly, baby
Together we'll fly
Track Name: Satisfaction
I love the way you look
When I'm closing in
You got my attention
Your hands are wandering
If you're wondering
You can do what you want with me

I don't mind
If only you would stay tonight

You know I want you
And I know you want to
Give me a reason
To satisfy your needs
But satisfaction is never guaranteed
Don't stop, don't stop til we're done

I love the way you breathe
Relax, girl
You can have my affection
But I'm only in halfway
That's the price i pay
To have my way with you

You don't mind
Your body's wet
Your soul is mine

I know you want me
So let's make this easy
Don't play with my heart
Play with me instead
Until we drown in a sea of red and white
Don't stop, don't stop we're done
Don't stop til we come

You know I want you
And I know you want to
Give me a reason
To satisfy your needs
But satisfaction is never guaranteed
So... Don't stop, don't stop til we come

I know you want me
And I'll make you bleed
Until the day you admit that you are mine
We're both addicted
Addicted to this drug
Don't stop, don't stop til we come
Oh yeah
Track Name: Black Magic
You've cast a spell upon me
Enamored by your wicked hex
And my revenge upon you
Will leave you desperate for sex

Perfection is so tragic
Jealousy is beauty's favorite vice
Perversion in your magic
I know you'll make it worth the price

Rip open wide
A ceremony covered in white
Black magic has made me crazy!
For sex!
Give it to me!

Kissing you with open eyes
I see reflections of tragedy
And if ecstasy is not enough
To break you open
I won't stop until you come

You've cast a spell up on me
Fuck me, I'm wet with ecstasy
Entice me with your honey
I'll let you have your way with me

Whip me into submission
As I turn listlessly in bed
Don't listen if I stop you
Don't stop until I'm white as snow

Rip open wide
A ceremony covered in white
Black magic has made me crazy!
For sex!
Give it to me!

Kissing you with open eyes
I taste the flavor of envy
And if jealousy is not enough
To tear you open
I won't stop until you come

You've cast a spell upon me
Enamored by your wicked hex
And my revenge upon you
Will leave you desperate for ***

Perfection is so tragic
Jealousy is beauty's favorite vice
Perversion in your magic
I know you'll make it worth the price

Kissing you with open eyes
I see reflections of tragedy
And if ecstasy is not enough
To break you open
I won't stop until you come

Track Name: Change the World (Album Ver.)
The times are ever changing
The world is ever-turning
Don’t be afraid to run against it
I know it takes some time
It’s one hell of a ride
But you are safe with me tonight

Don’t stop the music
Just keep on singing
Sing ’til the world hears our song
One, two, three, go!

Let’s make a memory we can’t replace
Always remember the smile upon your face
Let’s sing a song, we’ll make it right
As long as you’re here, we’ll change the world tonight

Outside a revolution
In here an evolution
It doesn’t matter what they say
Forget about your worries
Just sing with me surely
We’ll find a way to make it better (One, two, three, go!)

Let’s make a memory we can’t replace
Always remember the smile upon your face
Let’s sing a song, we’ll make it right
As long as you’re here, we’ll change the world tonight

Don’t stop the music
Just keep on singing
Sing ’til the world hears our song
Don’t stop the music
Just keep on singing
Sing ’til the world hears our song

Let’s make a memory we can’t replace
Always remember the smile upon your face
Let’s sing a song, we’ll make it right
As long as you’re here, we’ll change the world tonight
Track Name: The Neverending Summer
Sitting by the lake
In your eyes I see a shimmering reflection
Of right here and right now
You're blushing just a bit
As I move a little closer and I kiss you
I'm falling for you

Like a song
That's lost in the night
Darling, where are you now?

The neverending summer
We were always together
Nothing to be scared of
Just you and me and love, love, love
Love was in the air
Between our lips we shared
Wish that we could go back
To that neverending summer

There in my back seat
Wearing nothing but the smile that I complete
To me you surrendered
We parked out in the dark until sunrise
And as I stared into your eyes
You whispered, "I love you" ♥

Like a song
That's lost in the night
Darling, where are you now?

The summer memories
When you were here with me
Days that felt like hours
Just making love
Believing you and I would last forever
Someday it would be better
Wish that we could go back
To that neverending summer

Nothing lasts forever
But I'll always remember
Every single moment that we shared together
Every single word
And every single kiss
I miss you now

I promise you our neverending summer
Will stay with me forever
Nothing to be scared of
Just you and me and love, love, love
Love was in the air
Between our lips we shared
Wish that we could go back
To that neverending summer
