Track Name: Restricted
As the day is dying ,
The urban winter spreads its fumes into the dead city.

Walking these desert streets ,
A shadow’s steps , hitting the ground .
A tortured mind , sick and alone,
Hiding tragedy in his cloak.

I witness an inner struggle scene:
I feel the burden he carries in his head
Torn between reluctance and eagerness.
Insanity ‘s facing his guilt feelings.
But now the border ‘s to be crossed,
I can follow him down , and together we go beyond…
In apathy and anxiety , I no more know what’s real.

Disappearing into the fog ,
To the house , his weapon guides his mind.
And at the door , he knocks…
Breaking the silence , the screams pervade the night,
The obscure sky awakes , his hunt ‘s come to an end :
A couple’s lying dead , their new born child is spared.

Pale characters hanging on the walls are weeping helplessly,
Over a funeral bed , an eternal sleep .
The wooden floor ‘s cracking ,
A theater of death has risen its curtains .

The border has been crossed
And I’ve followed him down ,
Together we have gone ,beyond the restricted .
I no more know what’s real ,
I’m trapped in apathy , beyond the restricted .
Track Name: In the wake of the phantom's plague

Out of the fog ,
The night walker ‘s slipping away,
The lonely ghost ‘s braving the cold
As now the cries seem far in the distance.
I’m just one step behind , but can’t see my own shadow on the walls.
Who am I in this world ? And is this world insane ?

Night watches us walking ,
But my steps have no echoe here!
Dark houses keep silent as we’re going through this set of fear.
I’m a stranger to this past century,
Like trapped , under a spell.
I’m following this shape of Death.

Drawing nearer to where he dwells ,
Into this place of nameless streets ,
The air is getting colder , as we now reach the phantom’s den.

The gate opens and I follow his steps.
Inside this house , there is no sign of life.
No furniture , no window to be seen.
Only the smell of dusty wood to bear.
Nothing has survived here,
But a broken mirror , waiting in a corner ,
Waiting for us to see…
Facing the looking glass , the killer grasps my hand ,
And he raises his head ..
I finally can look at him…He has my face !
In the wake of the phantom’s plague,
I’ve been tracking my curse.
tracking my curse
Track Name: Inherit the dark

Through this journey , this dark city ,
I’ve been tracking my untamed mind.
That killer’s shape came out of me.
He’s the dark half that I have sent
Here on this slippery streets , to slay .
I had to trade my curse into this past reality
Where misery’s unleashed.

I broke the rule of space and time,
Projecting death in a funeral dream.
Apathetic deed of a possessed man,
To drop the fear out of the present time.

I’ve found this place place , I found the heir.
A chosen family to bear the suffering suffering.
I’ve dreamed this night , I’ve dreamed this crime ,
‘Needed this new born child.

Dear orphan boy , sadness bearer ,
Carry the curse I gave to you .
Grow with revenge inside your heart ,
Crying the loss of your makers .
Now , be my phantom’s heir .
Victim of my nightmare ,
Now , inherit the dark!
