Track Name: The Rising of Sórkura
No lyrics on this track, but there's an ancient Bribri chant in the background towards the end of the song. The meaning of these verses will remain a mistery.
Track Name: Sinister Sister
The night is young
And so are you
But there's no word of consolation to kill this silence
And all the things we said to hurt each other
Seems to be frozen in the air
It doesn't have to be this way

Sinister Sister
Sinister Sister
Sinister...

The steel is cold
And so are you
The sweat is running down your face
I sense your desperation
There is a monster inside you about to pull the trigger
It doesn't have to be this way
it doesn't have to end this way

Sinister Sister
Sinister Sister
Sinister...
Track Name: Patterns
Here I am...

Here I am right before your eyes
What to say? I can only smile
In the end everything is clear
Now I know you belong to me
I will draw patterns on your skin
Patterns on your skin
Patterns on your skin

And you will love
And learn what love's about
And you will glow
Just like the stars above
And you will fall
Inside our secret world
And you will know
There's nothing else beyond

Here I am right before your eyes
What to say? I can only smile
I will draw patterns on your skin
Patterns on your skin
Patterns on your skin

And you will love
And learn what love's about
And you will glow
Just like the stars above
And you will fall
Inside our secret world
And you will know
There's nothing else beyond

There's nothing else beyond
Track Name: A Nightmare...
Standing in the middle of nowhere
I realize I was not alone
A whisper broke up the silence
Watch me fall...

I walked the hall through the darkness
I saw the face of the ghost
I kiss the lips and they were so cold
Watch me fall...

Fleshless arms around my neck
Eyes full of love and death
As we danced to the same old waltz

I'd put my hands together and prayed
Finally when I woke up
The ghost was laying besides me
Watch me fall...

Fleshless arms around my neck
Eyes full of love and death
As we danced to the same old waltz
Track Name: Last Prayer
Blood is no chain
Care is no love
You had to learn
I had to grow
Roseanne...
Roseanne...

Life is no game
Fate is no choice
You felt the pain
I felt alone
Roseanne...
Roseanne...

Sailing a sea of tears
You are still a stranger
A whisper in my ear
Just one last prayer

Wrath had no place
Fear had no voice
I stood awake
You saw me fall
Roseanne...
Roseanne...

Blood is no chain
Care is no love
You had to learn
I had to grow
Roseanne...
Roseanne...

Sailing a sea of tears
You are still a stranger
A whisper in my ear
Just one last prayer

After so many nights
I could not sleep
I could have died
You took my hand
And kept me warm
Do you still think I was meant to be alive?

Alive...

Sailing a sea of tears
You are still a stranger
A whisper in my ear
Just one last prayer
Track Name: Garden of Tears
Other thousand days waiting on the shore
There's a stranger knocking on your door
Temples crumble down from stone to dust
Our ancestors trail now is lost

A garden of tears is all that remains
The hills are still standing
Our prayers were made of forbidden words
Are we fading into silence?

Other thousand men die away from home
All the fireflies now are gone
Silent rivers like a funeral march
And the ancient sun just falls appart

A garden of tears is all that remains
The hills are still standing
Our prayers were made of forbidden words
Are we fading into silence?

(hear the voice within)
Is it the river
Is it the ape
Is it the spirit
Is it the snake
Is it the lynx
Is it the owl
Is it the earth
Is it my blood
