1. Scriptorium
 
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

 

Write, erase, rewrite
That's the way it goes
Why we can't rewrite our lives
That's an answer no one knows

 

LOOK INTO MY EYES, WHORE
I WILL TURN YOU INTO POETRY
LET ME HEAR YOUR VOICE, THIEF
I WILL MAKE YOU IMMORTAL

 

My quill draws eternal love and happiness
My mind craves for vast forests
My eyes stare into emptiness
Always wishing me away
  
But my tiny room will stay my prison
For an untamed heart there is no balm
For a fragile soul there is no space
I will go down by the end of day

 

OH, SHOW ME YOUR EYES, WHORE
I WILL MAKE YOU A GORGEOUS MAIDEN
FULL OF LOVE AND FULL OF VIRTUE
FORGET ABOUT YOUR SINS

 

My ink covers your ugly truth
But inside I know that there is no escape
I create things with a beauty so vast
But for me, in this world,
There is no one to hold on to

 

My quill draws eternal love and happiness
My mind craves for vast forests
My eyes stare into emptiness
Always wishing me away
  
But my tiny room will stay my prison
For an untamed heart there is no balm
For a fragile soul there is no space
I will go down by the end of day

 

I AM THE MASTERMIND
YOU WOULD CALL ME MISFIT
I AM THE DREAMER
YOU WOULD CAST ME OUT

  

My quill draws eternal love and happiness
My mind craves for vast forests
My eyes stare into emptiness
Always wishing me away
  
But my tiny room will stay my prison
For an untamed heart there is no balm
For a fragile soul there is no space
I will go down by the end of day

3. Dark Halls Of Oblivion
 
Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz & Julian Körner-Schuchardt
Additional vocals by Thorsten Schuck



 

 

 

Time passes us by
We're living in a perfect seem
Created by our fearful minds
Taken from a lonely poet's Dream

  

I don't care if it's whispered
If it's screamed or if it's sung
To me it's all the same
Don't let me die without a name
Save me from these dark halls of oblivion

 

Truly dead is who's forgotten
I just long for a memory
My heritage within a Melody

 

WE'RE ALL JUST DANCERS IN A MAD BALLET
TRYING TO LEAVE A TRACE WITH WHAT WE SAY

 

I will never fade away
I will face the end wide awake

 

LIFE IS JUST A MASQUERADE
NEVER COVERING OUR FEAR AND HATE

 

Tales will live forever
And a tale will I become
Forever I will dream
Never come undone

 

I don't care if it's whispered
If it's screamed or if it's sung
To me it's all the same
Don't let me die without a name
Save me from these dark halls of oblivion

 

I don't care if it's whispered
If it's screamed or if it's sung
To me it's all the same
Don't let me die without a name
Save me from these dark halls of oblivion

4. My Kingdom Come

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

Come and kneel before the divine

All the beauty, every word, every note is mine...

 

This is the kingdom of your queen uncrowned

A place where soon will fall eternal night

No hope is left in these ruins to be

And all that remains is a scent of blight

 

I've seen my kingdom come

Now watch it rise and fall

My final play is done

This is my curtain call

There is no last encore

You've seen it all before

No need for one last song

This is my kingdom come

 

Every tender blossom is bound to wither

My stride's unbroken as I pass the gate

The dream I once had has ever since faded

I will not close my eyes as my end awaits

 

I've seen my kingdom come

Now watch it rise and fall

My final play is done

This is my curtain call

There is no last encore

You've seen it all before

No need for one last song

This is my kingdom come

 

Hope is the torch to light my stake

 

I've seen my kingdom come

Now watch it rise and fall

My final play is done

This is my curtain call

There is no last encore

You've seen it all before

No need for one last song

This is my kingdom come

 

I've seen my kingdom come

Now watch it rise and fall

My final play is done

This is my curtain call

There is no last encore

You've seen it all before

No need for one last song

This is my kingdom come

5. Majesty of Madness

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

 

My return to a land

In which, once in, you never leave

No longer reason bound

Diving freely into grief

Dare to enter my realm

Come fly with me on wings of lunacy

Be welcome in this unseen cage

And behold its insane majesty

  

This majesty of madness so luring

Cascades of tears to escape from this world

A path to a dreamworld where my throne is tall

Forever ascending, but craving my fall

 

Release the force deep within

Break the chains and give in

The wings to leave reality behind

The final cry of the broken mind

 

The greatest minds bear deepest shadows

The mighty soul craves the unknown

A poet's heart raging with insanity

Paints a masterpiece of gallantry

This majesty of madness so luring

Cascades of tears to escape from this world

A path to a dreamworld where my throne is tall

Forever ascending, but craving my fall

 

This majesty of madness so luring

Cascades of tears to escape from this world

A path to a dreamworld where my throne is tall

Forever ascending, but craving my fall

Eternal night

No healing light

Forever bound

No hopeful sound

This majesty of madness so luring

Cascades of tears to escape from this world

A path to a dreamworld where my throne is tall

Forever ascending, but craving my fall

6. Lust for a Tale

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

SEARCH ON, WEAK ONE

STILL CRAVING FOR A DREAM

FOR HOPE WITHIN A STORY

FROM A WORLD 'TIL NOW UNSEEN

 

SLEEP ON, DAMNED ONE

BUY A TALE THAT IS NOT YOURS

WHAT'S YOUR PRICE FOR A FANTASY?

WHAT'S YOUR PRICE TO FINALLY SEE?

Yours is a life without wonder

A LIFE WITHOUT A GOLDEN DAWN

All you see is black and white

A REALM OF DREAMS FORLORN

And all that remains is the

LUST FOR A TALE

YOU MISS THE COLOURS OF THE WORLD

YET HAVE NEVER PAINTED IN YOUR OWN

WAITING FOR THE WORLD TO BRING YOU LIFE

EVER SINCE YOU'VE MISSED TO LIVE

 

Hold your breath and close your eyes

Ponder what a tale is worth

Your last dime for the ferryman

Or for one last dream on earth?

Yours is a life without wonder

A LIFE WITHOUT A GOLDEN DAWN

All you see is black and white

A REALM OF DREAMS FORLORN

​​

Yours is a life without wonder

A LIFE WITHOUT A GOLDEN DAWN

All you see is black and white

A REALM OF DREAMS FORLORN

And all that remains is the

LUST FOR A TALE

Come to life now

Or you wake up to a world

Where every tale is told

And every story's sold

7. Standing on the Edge

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

Listen to the waves
They are the choir singing
Look at the red moon rising
Burning fire from the sky

 

I spread my arms awaiting
A fierce wind straight in my face
They say this is the day
Our world will go to Sleep

Forevermore...

 

Standing on the edge
I scream out to the night
Where are your storms and holy wrath
No pale riders are in sight

 

Give me fire, give me waves
To tear this world apart
No holy, crushing rage
Can tame a broken heart

 

And I search the sky
Where are your Angels
With searing swords and burning eyes?
 
And if the end is drawing nigh
Why don't you come
To hear the truth and kill my lies?

  
Standing on the edge
I scream out to the night
Where are your storms and holy wrath
No pale riders are in sight

 

Give me fire, give me waves
To tear this world apart
No holy, crushing rage
Can tame a broken heart


Standing on the edge
I scream out to the night
Where are your storms and holy wrath
No pale riders are in sight

  

Give me fire, give me waves
To tear this world apart
No holy, crushing rage
Can tame a broken heart

8. My Empty Page

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

I remember aeons passed
And dreams as old as time
A thousand stories live
In these words of mine

 

Dreamers will be lonely
For once, my dream comes true
You are my cold night fantasy
There is no dream without you

  

I'm in love with your life
Longing for your tales
Come with me tonight
And fill my empty page

 

My heart is bleeding ink
My life will soak these pages
Left to tell forever
The tales of coming ages

 

Once upon a starry night
My own tale came alive
Remember, when those fall days sing
A lonely summer nights might

 

I'm in love with your life
Longing for your tales
Come with me tonight
And fill my empty page

 

An aeon worth of stories
Is worthless without you
Fill this emptiness within me
And make them all come true

I'm in love with your life

Longing for your tales

Come with me tonight

And fill my empty page

I'm in love with your life

Longing for your tales

Come with me tonight

And fill my empty page

9. The Wayfarer's Dream

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

Fly away, dear lonesome heart

For I seek salvation in the journey

I want to hunt with the wind untamed

The vast is calling my name

There is poetry in everything

And a poet's soul is mine

I want to bathe in beauty

My heart is craving the divine

I want to hear the song of the world

A wolf's howl in the night

The witches dancing in ecstasy

Oden's wrath, Aphrodite's child

A valkyrie's song, solace for the lost

A maze leading nowhere

The world's marvels unseen

The wanderer's lust, the wayfarer's dream

 

All the world's marvels entwine

Within my heart an eternal tale

A want to sing a new song

For every horizon I sail

 

I miss the colours of the world

Want to breathe the journey

Once more amaze my old heart

I'm alive the moment I depart

I want to hear the song of the world

A wolf's howl in the night

The witches dancing in ecstasy

Oden's wrath, Aphrodite's child

A valkyrie's song, solace for the lost

A maze leading nowhere

The world's marvels unseen

The wanderer's lust, the wayfarer's dream

I want to hear the song of the world

A wolf's howl in the night

The witches dancing in ecstasy

Oden's wrath, Aphrodite's child

A valkyrie's song, solace for the lost

A maze leading nowhere

The world's marvels unseen

The wanderer's lust, the wayfarer's dream

10. Uncrowned

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

At the threshold of the night
Desolate and colourblind
Hate is knocking down the door
Tempest from a molten core

 

But when dusk exhales the dark
All my arrows find their mark
Fortune forced the winds to turn
Time to feel the fever burn

I may be uncrowned and covered in blood
My eyes have been blinded, my wings have been cut
I may be fallen and gone insane
But here in the wild I still rule the night

I may be uncrowned and covered in blood

My eyes have been blinded, my wings have been cut

I may be fallen and gone insane

But here in the wild I still rule the night, still rule the night

 

I accept my fate
And what the world forgot
It's alright that you adore
All that I'm not

 

I am not an Angel
Was not the perfect queen
But now an evil shadow
Is what's left of me

I may be uncrowned and covered in blood

My eyes have been blinded, my wings have been cut

I may be fallen and gone insane

But here in the wild I still rule the night

I may be uncrowned and covered in blood

My eyes have been blinded, my wings have been cut

I may be fallen and gone insane

But here in the wild I still rule the night, still rule the night

No merciful heart
No grace left to take
I weep all alone
On my rotten throne

I may be uncrowned and covered in blood

My eyes have been blinded, my wings have been cut

I may be fallen and gone insane

But here in the wild I still rule the night


I may be uncrowned and covered in blood
My eyes have been blinded, my wings have been cut
I may be fallen and gone insane
But here in the wild I still rule the night, still rule the night

11. The Memory Remains

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 


Dreaming alone I remember

These snow white days of mine

My heart that had no torment met

And that love, my sweetest wine
 
We shared nothing but a story

A dream that was before them all

I dreamt it, but too passionately

Soaring high and bound to fall

Though so many years apart

The memory remains

The first needle to the dreamer's heart

The memory remains
 
An untouched heart bleeds innocence

And wounded mine bled crystal clear

Bitter is the first bite of pain

The sweeter are my tears
 

Though so many years apart

The memory remains

The first needle to the dreamer's heart

The memory remains


LUST WILL MAKE THE ANGELS FALL

See your angel fall

PAIN TURNS COLD A LOVING HEART

Feel my loving heart

TO HEAL OLD WOUNDS IS HARD

I will keep the scars

FEAR THE BENIGN THAT GO TO WAR

Fear the benign that go to war

Take this lenity away from me

Devour my love and suffocate

I never meant to be a saint

Now save me from this hell

Take this lenity away from me

Devour my love and suffocate

I never meant to be a saint

Now save me from this hell

 

Though so many years apart

The memory remains

The first needle to the dreamer's heart

The memory remains

This untouched soul laid bare

On the altar of virgin love

Come the seasons and their storms

And wear away the bitter scorn

Embrace these scars that life has left

Stories engraved into our hearts

Time will sometimes part our ways

But still the memory remains...

12. As Beauty There in Shackles Lies

Lyrics by Sarah Gorzelitz
Music by Peter Lenz

 

 

I long for you

September days so long gone by

With a will so strong and free

And a heart still young and blind

 

The world was wide

And waiting there for me to come

Not knowing of the pain ahead

And the end to all my songs

Silence came with force

And woke a vengeful mind

The moment that a voice turned mute

A graceful heart turned blind

As beauty there in shackles lies

As if in slumber buried deep

I feel a spark of heaven dies

And silently I weep

As beauty there in shackles lies

As if in slumber buried deep

I feel a spark of heaven dies

And silently I weep

And when to heaven high I will depart

I won't forgive, I won't forget

Lord, you don't know what you did

And you don't know what I had

There's a fire deep inside

That no empty words will choke

Why would you ever let me dream

When the cruelest thing down here is hope?

 

As beauty there in shackles lies

As if in slumber buried deep

I feel a spark of heaven dies

And silently I weep

As beauty there in shackles lies

As if in slumber buried deep

I feel a spark of heaven dies

And silently I weep

A great soul lies discraced

As if raped and stripped of pride

As beauty lies in chains

But this dear heart will abide

And pours blood still through these vains

And I know not all is lost

Although broken, I'm not dead

No greater scorn in what's ahead
