Track Name: Resurrect
EVERYTHING IS DECIDED TODAY
OUR GREATEST CHALLENGE
RESURRECT OR GIVE IN?
CUT THE ROPE OF DEFEAT

WE ARE IN HELL - GET AHEAD! FIGHT TO SHINE IN THE DARKNESS CLIMB WALLS OF EMBERS
WATCH US RISE FROM THE ASHES

IT CAN BE THE END OF OUR DOWNFALL
OUT OF THE ORBIT OF ERRORS
WE THIRST FOR LIFE AND REVENGE
OUR NODE DOES NOT YIELD

BREAK THIS STASIS - GET AHEAD!
WE'RE HERE - WE'RE BUILT TO LAST
I'LL KEEP IN MIND THE LESSON
WE'LL LOOSE WHAT WE DON'T DEEPLY LOVE

THIS IS HELL!
WE CAN STAY HERE AND TAKE SLAPS
OR FIND OUR WAY TO REACT

THIS IS HELL!
WHAT REALLY COUNTS NOW WE MUST DEFEND
RESURRECT OR THIS NUMBNESS WILL CORRODE EVERYTHING
Track Name: Through the Turbid
I SHED MY BLOOD
TO FIND THE NECESSARY STRENGTH
TO TRY TO ACT ALWAYS FOR THE BEST
I WANNA SEE THROUGH THE TURBID
THE WEALTH THAT LIES AT THE BOTTOM
AND RECOGNIZE A REAL SPUR
TO GET MYSELF OUT OF THIS STAGNATION
I'LL DIVEST MYSELF FROM EVERY UNCERTAINTY
TO KEEP MY MIND FIXED ON MY GOALS
I'VE GOT A COMPASS OF BELIEFS
TO KEEP CLEAR WHAT I WANNA ACHIEVE
AND TO NEVER LOSE MY CENTER

IN EVERY LATITUDE
SEARCHING FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
TRYING TO CATCH EVERY FRAGMENT OF TRUE LOVE
(REAL TRUE LOVE)

NEVER GIVE UP!
I PUT MY HEART IN STRONG HANDS BREAK UP THE FRAILTY THAT MESSES I'LL ENDURE ADVERSITIES

IF I FEEL THE PRESSURE
I RETURN TO BREATHE
TRUSTING WHAT I'VE LEARNT (SHARP AND STRONG)
I CAN TOLERATE THE HARDEST SEASONS
WHEN LIFE SEEMS TO TAKE INSTEAD OF GIVING

SO I'LL RECALL MY FAITH IN MY CRUCIAL TIMES
WITH MY HOPES AS THE LAST WARM AFTERGLOWS

I'WON'T DESPAIR!

WE'VE TO LOOK AT OUR SOULS
TO CATCH OUR BEST REFLECTIONS
THIS IS OUR CALL
OUR COMMITMENT IS TO FOLLOW THE DRIVES OF A PURE HEART

I ALWAYS WANT TO RISE AND SHINE
OVER A CONSTELLATION OF FRUSTRATION
...AND I'LL CHASE ALL MY FEARS AWAY!
Track Name: The Foundations
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT YOUR DEATH?
SLAVE OF YOUR THOUSAND FEARS
DON'T BURY YOURSELF ALIVE
DON'T LIVE ON THE EDGE OF A GRAVE

YOU'RE SCARED OF DREAMING
IF A DREAM IS THE DAWN OF YOUR ILLUSION
FEAR OF STANDING AND FIGHTING FOR
IF YOUR FIGHT WILL MEAN JUDGE AND BLIND HATE
FEAR OF SHOWING LOVE
IF YOUR DEEPEST LOVE (SUDDENLY) UNVEILS ITS FAREWELL

YOU, YOU'RE AN HOSTAGE OF WHAT YOU'RE DENYING
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE
STEP BY STEP TO OVERCOME YOUR LIVING NIGHTMARES

FIGHT FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
TO FEED THE FIRE OF YOUR DEEPEST DESIRES
FIND GOLD THROUGH THE RUST OF WRONG CONCEPTIONS
AND UNEARTH THE FOUNDATIONS
OF A INNER REIGN OF AWARENESS

FEAR OF CATCHING YOURSELF
IF WHAT YOU UNVEIL IS NOT YOUR REAL 'YOU'
SOUL HAS NOT CORRUPTED BLOOD

STRICKEN WITH AMNESIA
BUT THERE ARE PERMANENT TRACES INSIDE OF ME
I'LL ADVANCE, I'LL NEVER HALT
I WON'T FEAR THE THORNS ALONG THE PATH

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT YOURSELF?
SLAVE OF EVERY UNCERTAINTY
DON'T BE AN HELPLESS PREY OF STRONG CONTRADICTIONS
WE'RE DOOMED TO GIVE A SENSE...TO OUR EXISTENCE
Track Name: The Flag of the Most Glorious
WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT IS ROTTEN INSIDE
FORCED INTO THE LOWER REALMS OF OUR DECLINE HUMANITY'S SINKING INTO A DISTORTED LIFE
WE NEGLECT, WE FORGET HOW TO RECALL OUR DIVINITY

RE-IGNITE THE LIGHT INSIDE
OUR SCREAM IS THE ANTHEM THAT WILL BREAK YOUR THRONES WE'RE NOT IN THIS ALONE
WE BRING THE FLAG OF THE MOST GLORIOUS
OUR FAITH IN CHANGE STILL BURNS WE DON'T GIVE IN!

FOREVER IN DEBT TO THOSE SOULS THAT STRUGGLE
TO ENLIGHT OUR LIFE
TO SET US ON A PATH TO COME TRUE

WE'RE TORN IN OUR HEART
BY YOUR BLADE OF MADNESS
BUT WE'RE NOT DEFEATED
WE WON'T LET YOU POISON THE HIGHEST TRUTH

LEADERS OF NOTHING
DOGS WHO THINK THEY'RE GOD – MUST FALL!
YOU'LL FACE YOUR OWN RUIN
AND WON'T STAY UNPUNISHED
Track Name: Your World is Nothing
WE'RE THE ONES WHO STILL BELIEVE!
LET'S SABOTAGE THE PLANS
OF THOSE WHO THINK THEY ARE GOD
OUR HEARTS TRANSCEND YOUR WORLD OF MADNESS

HOW TO AWAKEN YOU FROM YOUR FILTHY DREAMS
OF CONTROLLING EVERYTHING?
YOU'RE JUST A DOG ON A LEASH
OF YOUR INSANE TENDENCIES

I CAN'T BEAR THAT YOU DECIDE FOR ME
YOUR WORLD IS NOTHING
NOTHING IN IT FOR ME!

YOU'RE ALREADY DROWNING IN YOUR INNER MISERY
YOU'RE ONLY DUST FOR WORMS, THAT'S ALL I SEE
ALL YOUR SECURITIES OF ICE WILL MELT SOON
INTO THE WARMTH OF YOUR DEATHBED

EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE
YOU'RE ONE BREATH CLOSER TO DEATH
YOU'RE NEAR THE END OF WHAT YOU CALL 'SUCCESS'

WE CANNOT RIP YOUR HEART OUT
TO LET A DROP OF LOVE DIG AND PENETRATE YOU
IT REMAINS OUR PRAYER FOR YOU IGNORANCE
YOUR IGNORANCE!

WE MUST TAKE SHELTER IN SOMETHING CONCRETE
'CAUSE SOON WE SHOULD LEAVE EVERYTHING
I MUST FOCUS ON WHAT I REALLY NEED
YOUR WORLD IS NOTHING
NOTHING IN IT FOR ME!

NOTHING!
YOUR WORLD IS NOTHING!
Track Name: Spiral
IN MY MIND I HIBERNATED
GOLDEN DREAMS OF YOUTH
NOTHING CHANGED, I'M STILL THE SAME, I ALWAYS WALK MY LINE NEVER WANTED ANTAGONISM, COMPETITION AND RIVALRY
I STRIVE TO FIND MYSELF
AND TRY TO NEVER BREAK MY INTEGRITY
(NOW) I CAN'T LET YOU TEAR ME DOWN

IN YOUR VILE MALICIOUS SPIRAL
NO DIGNITY IN YOUR DIRE DISGRACE
WE SAW YOUR FALSITY DESCENDING TO DEFY YOU
IT'S TIME TO SEE WHAT YOU DESERVE

I DON'T KNOW IN WHAT YOU INVEST YOUR LIFE
MINE'S DEDICATED TO THE EFFORT TO IMPROVE
SEARCHING FOR MOMENTS OF TRUTH, CARE AND LOYALTY
WILL YOU FIND COMFORT IN THE LIFE YOU BETRAYED?

IN YOUR VILE MALICIOUS SPIRAL
NO DIGNITY IN YOUR DIRE DISGRACE
AND WHEN YOUR MASKS WILL FALL DOWN
YOU'LL KNOW ONLY ATTITUDE COUNTS

I'VE NO RIVALS
I RISE ABOVE WHAT THEY WANNA BECOME

WE SEE YOU LIVING EVERYTHING LIKE A PASSING PHASE SUBJECTED TO YOUR MOOD SWINGS
WITH NO IDEALS TO SHARE EVERY BOND IS A FARCE

YOU DECRY OTHERS
TO FEEL YOURSELF BETTER AND STRONGER
HURTING WITH YOUR POOR CRITICISM TO VALIDATE YOURSELF YOU USE SOMEONE'S WEAKNESS AS YOUR POWER
YOUR RIDICULOUS GAME SEEMS NEVER END
YOU'RE HIDDEN BENEATH YOUR BOLDEST ARMOR
BUT YOU'RE SO INCONSISTENT INSIDE
MAYBE YOU CAN'T SEE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF
LOST IN THE MAZE OF WHAT YOU LACK
THAT'S WHY YOU ATTACK!
Track Name: Hope in Pain
A WEAK THOUGHT THAT PARALYZES
THIS WORLD IS A SLAVE OF THE IMMEDIATE EPHEMERAL ATTITUDE OF COMPLAIN
NO DEDICATION, NO SACRIFICE!
SURFACE CULTURE, EMPTY LIFE
NO STRONG APPROACH
TOWARD OUR REAL SELF WORTH

UPSET BY HUNDRED CONFLICTS
OUR ACHIEVEMENTS SPENT IN A WRONG WAY
WE'RE TRYING TO RECALL OUR RESOURCES
FROM THE ETERNAL SOURCE
TRYING TO DIRECT OUR MOTIVATION
STRONG DRIVES TOWARD OUR REAL COMPLETION

WHERE AM I?
AM I MOVING FORWARD OR DISPERSING MYSELF?

METAMORPHOSIS TO REACH THE DESIRED GOAL
I TRY TO GIVE VOICE TO MY ASPIRATIONS
GIVING CREDIT TO WHAT'S INSIDE MY HEART
HOPE IN PAIN - I'LL NEVER LOOSE MY TRUST
REAL IDEALS WILL NOT BETRAY
SINCE THEY'RE BASED ON EVERLASTING VALUES

WE NEED THE DISCIPLINE
TO NOT LIVE AS WILD AND RECKLESS
GIVING WORTH TO OUR HUMANITY
THAT'S OUR ANTIDOTE FOR THE POISON OF THIS WORLD

WE MUST SET OURSELVES FREE IN A WORLD OF CHAINED
WE'RE NOT CONDEMNED TO SUFFERING
WE MUST NOT CHOKE OUR VOCATION TO FREEDOM
BUT POUR LOVE IN OUR FIRE OF DEVOTION
Track Name: Come True
I'M HERE, HERE, HERE
GIVE ME A CHANCE
TO TRULY CONFRONT MYSELF
AND FIND REAL MEANS OF GROWING
THIS COLD WORLD COULD SEEM SO ARROGANT
BUT I WON'T LET THE FEAR TAKE THE BEST OF ME
TRUE POTENTIALS SMASH ITS LACK OF LOYALTY

HARD WORK – TILL I'M BUILT TO RESIST
STAND FIRM – I'LL STAY STRONG WHEN FAKE EMPIRES WILL FALL A BOUNDLESS FORCE OF LOVE TO SHOW ME
THE CAPABILITIES OF MY HEART

LIVE THROUGH A PURE COURSE OF ACTION
(SINCE) WE'RE NOURISHING OUR DESTINY
SO I'LL KEEP ON SEARCHING FOR WHAT I REALLY AM
AS I CELEBRATE MY SELF RESPECT
I WON'T BE FILLED WITH YOUR EMPTINESS
AND COMPROMISE MY HEART TO FEEL MYSELF COMPLETE

LET YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
CARVE YOUR PROMISES INTO STONE
I WON'T FEEL LOST IN EVERY CHANCE I MISSED
I'LL EMBRACE THE CONSTANT EFFORT OF REDEEMING

I'M HERE, HERE, HERE
GIVE ME A CHANCE
TO TRULY CONFRONT MYSELF!
Track Name: Golden Simmetry
THERE'S NOTHING HERE TO REPLICATE
OUR MOST PRECIOUS MOMENT COMES TO CALL US NOW
TO FEED OUR PERSISTENT SENSATION
THAT WE'RE THE CHOSEN ONES
TO CATCH THE CHANCE TO MAKE OUR MARK

GET A GLANCE OF PURE EMOTION
LET'S SHINE IN OUR GOLDEN SYMMETRY
LET'S SEE OUR PROSPECTS GROWING STRONGER
WE'RE TOGETHER IF WE'RE TOGETHER AS ONE

NO OPEN WOUNDS TO ANESTHETIZE
ONE HEART WHERE MOORING OUR SOULS
VIVID REMEMBRANCES TO RECONNECT EACH OTHER
AND DEFEAT THE BRUTALITY OF OUR ABSENCE

NO SORROWS
UNLOCKING ROOMS OF THE PAST
NOTHING MAKES US SCARED MELTING THE COLD INSIDE OF US

NO DOUBTS
WE'LL PASS THROUGH EVERY DROP OF RAIN
TO GET A GLANCE OF PURE EMOTION
AND SHINE IN OUR GOLDEN SYMMETRY
WE'RE SPIRITS FLOATING TOWARD OUR BALANCE
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL
Track Name: Still Intact
YOU FEEL THE PRESSURE OF THE END
YOU FEEL ITS BREATH ON YOUR NECK
ALL HERE IS BURNING, ALL IS CHANGING
BUT I'VE PLAYED THESE SCENES BEFORE
I BREAK UP THE LIFE THAT WANTS ME BENT

NEW CHALLENGES
WITH THE SAME OLD VALUES
WITH ARDENT PASSION STILL INTACT
CREEPING VIRUS
BUT I'LL STAY THE SAME
SURVIVING INVESTING IN SELF WORTH

TAINTED BY RESENTMENT?
CONFISCATION OF LOVE?
I TRUST THE INNERMOST STRENGTH OF OUR HEART
THAT MAKES US ADVANCE

WITH A FORCE THAT URGES
OUR MIGHT BREAKS THE WALLS
PERSISTENCE TO RISE TO THE SURFACE AGAIN
WE WON'T TURN OUR BACK ON WHAT WE WANT MOST

ARE YOU SCARED OF FAILURE?
IT'S BETTER DYING KNOWING THAT YOU'VE TRIED STRAIGHTFORWARD WE'RE THE LAST BELIEVERS
PRETENDING IS ALL WE MUST DETEST
THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE
THE DAZED WAIT AND STAND ASIDE
I FEEL THE FIRE OF WILL RUNNING
'WE CREATE OURSELVES!'

WITH A FORCE THAT URGES
OUR DRIVE CAN BE SO STRONG
RESISTANCE TO RISE TO THE SURFACE AGAIN
WE'RE ALWAYS COMING BACK FOR MORE
WE WON'T TURN OUR BACK!
Track Name: New Crown
EVERYTHING'S CHANGING
NOTHING'S STATIC
AS WE SINK INTO THE WATERS OF TIME
I'D GIVE EVERYTHING TO SEE THROUGH MY DESTINY
I'M SEARCHING THE CONSTANT
AND THE REASON TO PERSIST

I LET THE PROMISES OF THIS WORLD
DIE TO LIVE AND WEAR A NEW CROWN
STRONG PILLARS OF AN AWAKEN CONSCIOUSNESS
WILL SUSTAIN ME AS I START TO SEE THIS SPELL CRUMBLING

OUR CAUSE IS UNDER THE ASHES
WE MUST PERSEVERE AND NEVER LOSE OUR HEART SURRENDER OURSELVES TO THE CURRENT OF TRUTH

THIS WORLD IS NOT A PART OF ME
I 'LL DIE TO LIVE AND WEAR MY NEW CROWN
STRONG PILLARS OF AN AWAKEN CONSCIOUSNESS
WILL SUSTAIN ME AS I START TO SEE THIS SPELL CRUMBLING

WE'LL SEE EVERYTHING PERISH IN OUR HANDS
THE SEA WAVE OF TIME
WILL ERASE OUR DREAMS ON THE SAND
WHAT WILL REMAIN?

PEOPLE CHASING CARELESSLY WHAT'S TEMPORARY
CAN YOU SEE THEY'RE ALL ON THE ROAD OF DEATH?
I FOUND OUT THAT LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT
I KNOW THAT I'M A DROP OF LOVE ENCASED IN HUMAN CAGE
SO AS A MOTHERLESS CHILD
I CAN ONLY INVOKE YOUR HOLYNAME
THIS IS MY ONLY ANCHOR DURING THE STORMS OF THIS WORLD
PLEASE SHAPE ME THROUGH YOUR HANDS,
WITH YOUR PROTECTION
MAKE ME WORTHY TO WEAR THIS NEW CROWN
AND I'LL REALIZE MYSELF IN THE CONNECTION
WITH THE SOUL OF MY SOUL
