Track Name: Devil's Bridge
One late summer's eve in the lowland
The devil so tired and bored
I need someone new to amuse me
A soul to lighten my load
I'll travel the world for my pleasure
And visit a faraway land
Where nature is bursting with treasure
I'll search and collect what I can

A week or so thereafter
He came to a wonderful land
Rivers running down ledges
Like silver on fair maidens hands
Upon him came an old woman
Her eyes were filled up with tears
He said: tell me your worries
And told her to lose all her fears

The devils bridge, stands strong and tall
The devils gone forever more

She pointed at all of her cattle
Lost on the rivers wrong side
There is nowhere for me to cross over
The dangerous current will ride
But fear not my gentle old woman
For I will build you a bridge
Remember now it's a bargain
The first soul to cross I will keep

Oh well thought the worldly old woman
Only the future will tell
She promptly returned at first sun light
With a trusty old stray by her side
As soon as she came to the river
She could not believe her own eyes
A bridge so handsome and solid
From nowhere seemed to arise

The devils bridge, stands strong and tall
The devils gone forever more

And now said the cunning old devil
You must give me my prize
So slowly she walked to the edge
With the trusty old stray by her side
But then she drew from her pocket
A loaf and tossed it across
The stray chased thereafter
The first living soul to cross

Oh no, cried the shamed old devil
I have no use for your stray
You need to honour your bargain
The woman replied with a wave
And here my friends ends the story
The devil would never return
To the land of the mist covered mountains
Where the bridge in his memory remain

The devils bridge, stands strong and tall
The devils gone forever more
Track Name: Your Disguise
You look at me with sad and lonely eyes
you talk to me of all that you despise
you come to me and try to patronize
but don't you know that you could lead a better life

Comatose through all your lies
Only happy stepping out in your disguise
Looking back at your advise
Another turn that lead to your demise

She looks at me with laughing sultry eyes
she turns me on but it's always compromised
she comes to me with her games and is surprised
with all the strain that goes along with her life

He tells me all I need to know about his plans
He still believes that he can be a better man
It could have been so different in another time
I start to see the lines grow deeper around his eyes

Comatose through all your lies
Only happy stepping out in your disguise
Looking back at your advise
Another turn that lead to your demise

I sit alone in this overcrowded town
and see the circles in my glass swim around
I ask myself why I chose to sick around
when I have seen so many others sink and drown
Track Name: Phantom Lines
Fantom lights control the wilderness
The monochrome world of the night
Silent life moving within me
Dispel the tight growing knot of pain

Freeing chains
Freeing strains
Freeing pains
Freeing chains

The quiet truth grew in confidence
Stop me from being overwhelmed
Completely neutral, completely unperturbed
Sincerity and wast duplicity

Freeing chains
Freeing strains
Freeing pains
Freeing chains


Forgotten souls floating without breath
Borrowed lies wake me from the past
Remember me walking through the lanes
Chasing dreams and stealing them away

Fleeing chains
Feeing strains
Freeing pains
Freeing chains
