    Buy track Lyrics

    After spending thousands on this thick fog
    having lost the ability to think for myself
    at last I had the courage to shout
    and I began to dream with it
    The only way to keep my freedom is to be willing to die for it
    When I get to gather forces
    when I get to win what keeps me here
    when I’ll fi ght as a warrior
    I’ll fi nd the way beyond the chains
    I must rise to the horizon
    to get what I deserve
    and not to be afraid of the battle
    The future is waiting for me to do it, do it
    When I get to gather forces
    when I get to win what keeps me here
    when I’ll fi ght as a warrior
    I’ll fi nd the way beyond the chains, beyond the chains!
    When I get to gather forces
    when I get to win what keeps me here
    when I’ll fi ght as a warrior
    I’ll fi nd the way…
    When I get to gather forces
    when I get to win what keeps me here
    The only way to keep my freedom
    I’ll fi nd it beyond the chains!

    Through The End Of Times Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    This timeless story through the end of times
    where my love was so great that I had to cross borders
    and eras
    From a world of battles until this cold reality
    I hope you come back
    a lifetime with you makes sense of this eternal curse
    I was born to meet you and miss you
    seek you and fi nd you
    There’s no life enough to dream
    Nor is there time to love you
    to comfort the life that you leave
    when you’re gone
    What is my price to pay to live forever?
    In view over the years if you are not by my side
    And that helps me see the birth of life
    if I don’t have you in my hands, in my hands
    I was born to meet you and miss you
    seek you and fi nd you
    there’s no life enough to dream
    Nor is there time to love you
    To comfort the life that you leave
    when you’re gone
    Once again, I failed again
    in breaking this curse that will never end…
    Hating my immortality!
    I was born to meet you and miss you
    seek you and fi nd you
    there’s no life enough to dream
    Nor is there time to love you
    To comfort the life that you leave
    when you’re gone
    Past, present and future are in you
    I’ll fi ght for our eternity
    through the end of times

    Firebird's Flight Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    Born from the sun he fl ies over the dawn
    where he drinks the dew that the world gives
    his plumage revives the chilly day
    Heard is his song (x4)
    Looking down, generates tears
    to heal the pain of the world
    while building the nest of his setting
    every fi ve-hundred years he reaches it
    Heard is his song (x4)
    Time came established, heard is his crying
    with stars his sacred history is completed
    With his wings fanned the fi re
    his courage was thrown inside
    From his own ashes so revive
    and fi rebird’s fl ying is undertaken again

    The same creature is born
    younger and stronger resumes the road
    He shines again in his desert and returns home
    He is unique and eternal as the soul of each one
    Heard is his song as an anthem
    his history and soul will be ancient
    Time came established, heard is his crying
    with stars his sacred history is completed
    With his wings fanned the fi re
    his courage was thrown inside
    From his own ashes so revive
    and fi rebird’s fl ying is undertaken again
    With his wings fanned the fi re
    his courage was thrown inside
    From his own ashes so revive
    the fi rebird’s fl ight has already started

    When Words Kill Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    I: TRAPPED
    Trapped in the world around me
    starts one more day
    in which my body refuses to wake
    to survive this life
    I take strength to walk
    in this emptiness that makes me cry
    And to think that this nightmare will end
    and that someday I will achieve living in peace
    I don’t know if it’s a punishment
    for what’s inside of me
    for not being what they expect me to be
    I need to understand how I am supposed to be
    to achieve happiness
    II: BORN TO FAIL
    Who are you in fact? It’s worthless
    You understand that without your appearance, you are worthless
    Be aware of those around you
    since they’ll betray you when least expected
    You were not the fi rst
    Other lives have been destroyed already
    The game continues
    Architect of this game and his own stage
    Look at your own refl ection
    and it will tell you that the world
    is just an illusion you once created
    that never happened, cause you’re nothing
    and you will never be cause you were born to fail
    We’ll break your fantasy of hope
    you are just a toy without history or truth
    in the hands of perfection

    Look at your own refl ection
    and it will tell you that the world
    is just an illusion you once created
    that never happened, cause you’re nothing
    and you will never be cause you were born to fail
    III: THOUGHTS (INSTRUMENTAL)
    IV: DISAPPEAR IN MY SAD END
    I can’t take anymore
    my biggest fear has taken over me
    You pushed me into this hollow
    where they become stronger
    There are no more fl ames to overcome on my way
    Is the moment of my sad end
    While I disappear in memories
    memories that no one will think about
    There are no more fl ames to overcome on my way
    Is the moment of my sad end
    V: ACHIEVE HAPPINESS
    I don’t know if it’s a punishment
    for what’s inside of me
    for not being what they expect me to be
    I need to understand how I am supposed to be
    to achieve happiness
    I don’t know if it’s a punishment
    for what’s inside of me
    for not being what they expect me to be
    I need to understand how I am supposed to be
    to achieve happiness
    “Only true people shine on their own,
    never let the evil of darkness turn them off again.
    Just loving our inside we will fi nd peace”

    Glory Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    When I feel the pain
    on my skin for all the blows
    when my temples burst with anger
    for giving you all that I had
    It’s when I’m stronger
    to tell you how I feel
    and to show you who I could become
    You laugh at the effort that has ripped part of my life
    and that someday will Iead me to victory
    I am where I deserve to be not thanks to your help
    but to a work you cannot even imagine
    When you miss me
    Remember that at some point I’ve been there
    and you didn’t value me
    Those who stood here one day
    had let me down
    and you keep trying to sink me
    But I always continue rising

    I don’t care about your looks
    you are nobody to me
    You have taught me
    that there will always be jealousy
    Those who stood here one day
    had let me down
    and you keep trying to sink me
    But I always continue rising
    Now it’s me who doesn’t want you with me
    Now you walk alone on your own way!
    Those who stood here one day
    had let me down
    and you keep trying to sink me
    But I always continue rising
    You were willing to tear down my effort
    that is what brought me glory
    You tried to leave me with hatred
    that’s all you know

    God Of Deads Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    In red and black sands of ancient world
    Lays the land of the dead
    where only his Lord can guide the resurrection
    Your trial will begin in the last day
    Your heart like a feather must weigh
    or the end will come
    Tonight, the hell will shine and the heaven will burn
    My decision will lead you to sleep
    God of deads!
    Have you committed iniquity? I haven’t committed iniquity
    Have you betrayed the truth? I haven’t betrayed the truth
    Have you caused suffering? I haven’t caused suffering
    Have you benefi ted the evil? I haven’t benefi ted the evil

    Your trial will begin in the last day
    Your heart like a feather must weigh
    or the end will come
    Tonight, the hell will shine and the heaven will burn
    My decision will lead you to sleep
    God of deads! (x2)
    Your trial will begin in the last day
    Your heart like a feather must weigh
    or the end will come
    Tonight, the hell will shine and the heaven will burn
    My decision will lead you to sleep

    Cross Eternity Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    What is this I feel
    that press my chest
    draws me a smile
    and take me out a tear?
    What is it that everyone feels?
    But both it’s forgotten?
    What is that for battles are done
    and so are written the greatest stories?
    With a joy cloud the air is enveloped
    Believing that heaven fi ts into a gaze
    dreaming this timeless story to cross eternity
    You feel the world stops
    to leave a life under your feet
    there are no limits or chains you cannot break
    Without gravity, makes you dream as if it was your last day
    Believing that heaven fi ts into a gaze
    dreaming this timeless story to cross eternity
    Believing that heaven fi ts into a gaze
    dreaming this timeless story to cross eternity

    Shadows In My Head Odyssey to Reflexion

    I open my eyes and I just see
    the storm of a place
    I don’t know
    My mind tries to think
    how I got here
    but I cannot remember...
    Where am I?
    I don’t understand
    This is not my site
    they keep me here without escape
    I don’t know who you are
    but let go back with those who wait for me
    Release me, release me!
    Who are you?
    Those strangers around me
    Where’s my life?
    They create a life that’s not mine
    They don’t stop talking to me
    Have I lost it?
    Why am I here?
    I don’t understand
    This is not my site
    they keep me here without escape
    I don’t know who you are
    but let go back with those who wait for me
    Release me, release me!
    I don’t understand
    But it doesn’t matter
    Shadows in my head tell me
    that nothing will be like before
    I only see darkness
    This empty story every morning will revive

    Critical Situation Odyssey to Reflexion

    Buy track Lyrics

    Critical situation, clutter everywhere
    Well it seems that the world
    is of the wealthy potentates
    Blind without poles, sick of ambitions
    pied piper of Hamelin that no one wants to follow
    Who has sown fear
    has an awful name
    called power, and greedy surname
    But we must not allow them
    steal the most valuable thing: freedom
    They have the power
    have the skillet by the handle
    And his friends in pen and ink
    phonies by profession, wizards of speculation
    Don’t be afraid, because fear paralyzes
    now it’s time to walk and not look back
    Do our best, take a step forward
    to leave our children a planet
    where they can live
    an inheritance without mortgage
    The freedom that you worked hard to achieve
    “Lying is like one of those viruses
    that poison the environment
    the society and the air becomes pernicious
    hard to breathe, hard to breathe”

    But you know what? You can escape the lie
    Because lying is imaginary
    Artifi ce of his own stage
    It numbs our fi ghting spirit
    Giving us the tranquility amid
    Don’t be afraid, because fear paralyzes
    now it’s time to walk and not look back
    Do our best, take a step forward
    to leave our children a planet
    where they can live
    an inheritance without mortgage
    The freedom that you worked hard to achieve
    We must evolve
    on a scale of values
    and not to frighten the oppressors
    We have to convince “those who rule”
    stop being a “worm”
    and become butterfl ies
    “Let’s stop mourning, let’s seek solutions
    Now or never is the time to be in front of them
    To ask what we need and be fi nally heard
    We have the strength and courage
    to create our own reality
    and guide it to reach happiness”
