Caliban - Shadow Hearts [2003]

1. Dark Shadows

(instrumental)

2. Forsaken Horizon

a glance back, a glance into the now
tears sweeten the day, but the aftertaste is bitter
where are the good old times, where is my dependence – bullet!
in your presence my memories swallow me
moment for moment you throw me back
a new way, the same paths, old fears
I'm the tool of my demons,
they hide the depths of my soul, in darkness
(I'm not ready for this way, to open up, to give – blade!)
let me go before I end, lonely.
I cannot be what I am
Fill me with new hope.

3. Storm Of Rage

walls collapse onto me, I ride the storm of rage
a mistake became a chain – reaction and the
reflection falls upon me
it's time for change, understanding and
faith are what friends are about, but on every corner
disappointment (is waiting, every wall would have
understood me better), I am cold.
I stand alone and all that remains is the hope
for help, the anger is strong and threatens to
destroy me, because what was will never be again,
too much has happened and the mind becomes dull,
it is the tragedy of time, a sea of tears for grief,
but from the shadows of my tears, of my past, you
come and give me your hand, tame my anger
my tears fade and together we fight as friend
together we fight as friend for (the) time.

4. Vicious Circle

every day I see your face
every day I die
every day I feel your breath
every day I'm born again
you give me joy, but my thanks are just pain
and out of fear I pull myself loose again
for you I die
you are everything I need, what I desire,
but will I ever understand?
come on!
I die for you
please forgive my faults,
maybe one day I will realize what you mean (to me),
I hope it won't be too late
every time I cry,
I feel your lies
every time I die,
I see your eyes.

5. Bad Dream

oh dark night, in silence broken ban,
shackles of fear, I lie there, flat and merely
the valley lies deep, staggering in the past, shadows
hide danger and feed me in the coldness,
I don't see myself,
don't look at me,
you would burn
as my house lies empty and
I float against the time,
come here, come in,
burn for my soul.

6. The Seventh Soul

I travelled across the edges of my soul, add it
doesn't seem any better when I cross the border
The world falls to piece but every Sunset is
the rebirth of a new experience.
I often felt this sorrow, I often stand alone,
dipping and diving to see the bottom but where are the
lines that divine...
Confidential sins have already taken my so called
freedom and every choice I made framed my so called future.
I'm no longer care about the way I gone, burning
like a fire to smother in the end, wasting time
while I'm expecting death.

7. Scream From The Abyss

come on, tell me who you really are
Stop with your lies, I've looked behind the mask and
now your time is over
day by day deceived, you blind my senses
you have never been a friend,
without scruples you've driven me to the point I am
standing at now
I jump "somersault backwards" and push you into the
depth that you've created yourself
now bear your own consequences,
feel the sorrow that you have imposed upon me,
feel the pain and scream from the abyss of your
malice,
nobody will help you,
who sows hate shall harvest pain.

8. Detect Your Liberty

look into the wide, wild liberty
look well, it's reality
close your eyes and turn loose,
all burden is impulse
drop the anger, the hate you cherish
turn loose, cry on me, let go, let all go
I hold your hand and lead you
we're melt together, becoming one
and we get the power to cry,
scoop for your life, cry, detect your liberty
fight for your freedom,
freedom is life, burn down your walls.

9. Fire Is My Witness

a new day, a new struggle, blank walls scream
narrowness
but I'm my own prison, go, run rush into the woods
the vast unknown spurs on my will to fight
the energy, the magic of silence and I am immortal
my eyes become heavy, the mind porous
fire in the convergence
an inner force calls out my name and
says, everything is gone, everything is done, the
voice sounds
familiar, but my body is captured in fear and the
light leaves my way, fear is hiding in the
shadows, but I am the force and I light my
fire, the demon shall burn, the fire is my witness
a final scream, a final tear and I am free.

10. Between The Worlds

deeply hidden in the deepest wood
black is the night
the owls are singing between the worlds
the circle closes, the cycle of fire opens it's doors
the guard between the shadows searches for fear-
(to broken souls he reaches out his hand and leads the
way into the night)
fire walk with me...
pain shouts you down
you've split and I spit on you
(call my name and I'll catch you
carry my ring and) I will kill you.

11. A Piece Of My Life

I feel breathe, live alone with my love,
I gave it to you, I should have known,
reality will never be a dream!
in my dreams I walk around,
in the darkness of my ashes,
always following your light,
I feel no fear, cause your fire gives me safety
my fire burns deep and ardent,
but I radiate just coldness and hopeless
helplessness, awkward,
naive like a child
everyday I fell reality, the reflection of the wide void
I don't want to live, just want dream!
(my fire burns deep and ardent)
come on and play with me.

12. Everlasting

none

13. Boredo(o)m

Shadows of the past thrown on me
and broke my walls,
all the time that has passed,

However the pain is not less-
hopelessy caught in emptiness

recognition of boredom...

Arms are weak, my feet are stiff and cold
why do I not escape
arms are weak, my feet are stiff and cold
I'm the scourage of my self made walls

dreams of hope come up
and let me fall again even deeper
into the band of pain,
steel colours my skin deep red,
no death, but eternal toture
