Shelter
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

For each day I try
Every moment I cry
There's a miracle waiting for me
Every pain I take
For each fear I forsake
There's a leap that can set me free

Eyes of fire, pathways that gleam
Life's a deal I'm taking over
Row by row I break through the stream
With needs that scream over and over

Dreams are shelter to your hope
Plain reality's my dream

Every night I weep
For each promise I keep
There's a feeling profound to explore
For each bond I make
Every tie I won't break
There's a secret for me to unfold

Eyes of fire, pathways that gleam
Life's a deal I'm taking over
Row by row I break through the stream
With needs that scream over and over

Dreams are shelter to your hope
Plain reality's my dream

Learn that fortune always sells her wares
But never gives them




The Messenger
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

No star will show the way
No one we need to follow
No fate but what we make
No rest for the warlord

Felt like an age of sleep
A thousand years of numbness
Now we're awake for real
A new era has begun

The tide has changed
Hearts are filled with desire
Deeper we dive
Now the message of life
is bright clear

"When we live to die fighting
for all the things we believe
wishes come true"

we will keep it up
Keep the fire burning
Even when all seems lost
We'll listen to our hearts

Despite how much we wept
The years were enough to make it
Free time can't be kept
Choose your war and spend it

The tide has changed
Hearts are filled with desire
Deeper we dive
Now the message of life
is bright clear

"When we live to die fighting
for all the things we believe
wishes come true"




Lady Jane Grey
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Rugged faces inside the London tower
Seen their traces and surely felt the power
In secret places the game is set in all details
With warm embraces and drops of treason
Inner fires that ember grow their thirst

Watch it Lady Jane Grey, this might be a trap
There's no word of honor there's no turning back
Hungry dogs of power always pull these strings
Watch it Lady Jane Grey, they can only win
They only win

Empty chamber, those days now seem like hours
Bleak December, slowly all hope's devoured
The crown defender she knows the game but no details
so great pretenders found tons of reasons
To accuse for treason and quench their thirst

What now Lady Jane Grey, now you're in their trap
Now your days are numbered and your time is up
Hungry dogs of power always pull these strings
Watch it  Lady Jane Grey, they can only win
They only win

That's it Lady Jane Grey, this is how it ends
Now your eyes are fading and your soul transcends
Hungry dogs of power always pull these strings
Watch it  Lady Jane Grey, they can only win
They only win




Phoenix
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

We rise and then we must fall
There are so many things in this life we can't control
But when the lights fade away
There are parts in this world where the night turns to day

The times we fail will let us know
that the phoenix must burn to emerge

Every new day is a great chance given
to stand out, grow strong and rise above all
Cause every end, is a new beginning
For winning, for reaching all we ever dreamt

It's heaven and then it's hell
There are so many feelings that words cannot tell
It's not what route you must take
It's the certainty that you can't live with no mistakes

The times we fail will let us know
that the phoenix must burn to emerge

Every new day is a great chance given
to stand out, grow strong and rise above all
Cause every end, is a new beginning
For winning, for reaching all we ever dreamt

Don't sell out your dreams
Never let your focus shift
and draw your action plan
The phoenix must burn
To emerge again




After Forever
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

It's so true you don't know what you got
Until it is gone
It's true looking back on the laughs makes you cry
When time's speeding towards forever
My needs travel backwards
To ill-timed farewells and hurtful goodbyes

Those I loved have gone far away
And no road can lead the way

Maybe one day we'll learn to live for today
Before this life just slips away
Somewhere in time, somehow I know deep inside
We'll meet again free from the pain
After forever

It's so true  you don't know what's missing
Until its arrival
It's true looking back on the cries makes you laugh
I find some farewells can be hardly grasped
The grief sinks in my bones
Can't let go of things that once meant so much

Those I loved have gone far away
And no road can lead the way

Maybe one day we'll learn to live for today
Before this life just slips away
Somewhere in time, somehow I know deep inside
We'll meet again free from the pain

Free from the pain
After forever, after forever
After forever, after forever




Looking Back
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Woman bring the pain I seek
love can heal me
As my empty self lies weak
words might fill me
cause I need to understand

How can I stop thinking
Of what is left for tomorrow
When looking back there's so
much never done just for yesterday

Lone soul bring me your disease
for the killing
Yet it's me I cannot please
Though I'm willing
cause I need to understand

How can I stop thinking
Of what is left for tomorrow
When looking back there is so
much never done just for yesterday

Qualms crawl into my head
Innocence is gone




Travel Far Away
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

You know, it's easy to live in agony and pain
Under the weight of your fears; burn the years in vain
Just keep your head down and do all that you despise
Or stick to your warm nest and never fly

The hard part is making the dream come alive
to stay right on track every day
Reach for the top and marvel at the beauty
of your self-made reality

Time falls behind you as your weak part leads on
Step on a wish and travel far away
Turn all your wounds and pain into wisdom
Follow your heart and you will find your way
Far away

If you cannot dare to fail you cannot achieve
You only choose to exist and to never live
Bury each battle you lost into yesterday
Spread your wings now and fly away

The hard part is making the dream come alive
To stay right on track every day
Reach for the top and marvel at the beauty
of your self-made reality

Time falls behind you as your weak part leads on
Step on a wish and travel far away
Turn all your wounds and pain into wisdom
Follow your heart and you will find your way

The shining stars you wish upon
Can help in no way when faith is missing

Time falls behind you as your weak part leads on
Step on a wish and travel far away
Turn all your wounds and pain into wisdom
Follow your heart and you will find your way

Far away, far away
Far away, far away





Oceans
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

I remember long ago
We were aiming high above
and our oceans seemed so vast
Time slips away so fast

Silence fills our playing field
There your old man used to build
Swarms of paper planes to fly
To keep our heads up high

There's no thing called fate
"Now" was never late

All so plain
No matter how much pain
We shed no tear in vain
We left no fear untamed
We made our dreams come true

And now that our oceans found a shore
And our hearts still ask for more
when recalling all those years
I can't hold my tears

There's no thing called fate
"Now" was never late

All so plain
No matter how much pain
We shed no tear in vain
We left no fear untamed
We made our dreams come true





Red Ruby Heart
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Love was a seed sowed into my core on the day I met you
Then life only mattered if somehow I'd spend it with you
Words were still enough to possess my feelings
But I could not change, be someone else to fit your needs

Yet a restless kind of spirit full of dreams, you know that
Living in this world of deception we won't have a chance
Deep into your eyes there's a flame still burning
There's also enough ego and blame to keep me away

Tried to get all my points across
I won't keep on pretending
I'm not willing to bear the cross
I'm not willing to stay

As the world will keep on turning
Every hour and every day
My desires will keep on burning
To light up and show the way

Now that all the paths are walked and all is said between us
I know that there's nothing in me you can win anymore
Words are not enough to possess my feelings
And I cannot change; be someone else to fit your needs

Tried to get all my points across
I won't keep on pretending
I'm not willing to bear the cross
I'm not willing to stay

As the world will keep on turning
Every hour and every day
My desires will keep on burning
To light up and show the way




Deceiver
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

I hear the countdown, the clock ticks life away
I know I tried hard but I don't seem to find my way
Nothing but yearning, that's what you left for me
and then you're burning your bridges like an enemy

I can't move on, nor can I forget you

You showed me it's more than just a game
and played your role until we reached the final stage
You know it; I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside a promise never to be kept from you

So many times that you've been caught in a lie
But you had powers still over me, I can't deny

I can't move on, nor can I forget you

You showed me it's more than just a game
and played your role until we reached the final stage
You know it; I'll never be the same
I'm caught inside a promise never to be kept from you





Broken
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

A touch of sunlight and the day breaks in the city
This life is open to an empty page again
Yet all the world beyond this sweating window pane
Will still remain for me a sad object of pity

A voice of reason hides behind the truth of feelings
like any blinding urge denies a truth that screams
the dreams we bought had shown that nothing's what it seems
and all our questions are still hanging from the ceiling

Is there a point in living
Are we heaven's lavish heirs
Is there a God forgiving
That can hear our prayers
He should know by now we're suffering
But keep on trying

This spiral track we're spinning in may last forever
but time will cruelly take it's toll on everything
Soon we must find the will to spread our broken wings
When all we are begins to fade, it's now or never

Is there a point in living
Are we heaven's lavish heirs
Is there a God forgiving
That can hear our prayers
He should know by now we're suffering
But keep on trying




Vengeance
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Pain is all I own, no emotion
All you've ever known, planting poison
Sometime near this day you'll be forced to pay
Someday, that's what I live for

Every step you take I follow
Every move you make
I will feel no sorrow when I see you beg
I've been waiting so long
Fate's not always fair
but revenge is sweeter than life ever was
with me

No need to move on and turn the page
Till the pain I own turns into rage
Sometime near this day you'll be forced to pay
Someday, that's what I live for

Every step you take I follow
Every move you make
I will feel no sorrow when I see you beg
I've been waiting so long
Fate's not always fair
but revenge is sweeter than life ever was

Sometime near this day you'll be forced to pay
Someday, that's what I live for

Every step you take I follow
Every move you make
I will feel no sorrow when I see you beg
I've been waiting so long
Fate's not always fair
but revenge is sweeter than life ever was




Rebirth
Music: Kosta Vreto
Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

Unlocked the doors of hate
Unleashed the winds of rage
Encaged in apathy all dreams and all hope
my thoughts are taken back
to where oblivion dwells
my sails are colored black
I'll never return

My shadow will keep unseen
A new soul I'm holding within
No one will know where I've been or
what my desires may bring
This very soul that I'm breeding
will never call out your name
And for my heart that's still bleeding
Time will drain out all the pain

This world is breaking down
I won't stay chained and bound
letting all fears unfold without control

My shadow will keep unseen
A new soul I'm holding within
No one will know where I've been or
what my desires may bring
This very soul that I'm breeding
will never call out your name
And for my heart that's still bleeding
Time will drain out all the pain




Four Seasons
Music & Lyrics: Stergios Kourou

The summer lives in the shores of distant islands
Your face unlined in memories unperished
And through misleading delusions long cherished
Your voice will flicker once again on my lit candle

The fall came early your destiny was written
It seemed you saw fate looming at a distance
There was no tragedy occurred, no other instance
Only your eyes descended into darkness

The winter starts to melt but deep inside
It seems no faith will spring above this sorrow
The nights are long, the days are grey
No signs of hope shall reign

The spring felt strange as the days grew slightly longer
The sharpest contrast was me, it's more than certain
As I stood watching alone behind the curtain
The heartache deep into my chest was growing stronger

The winter starts to melt but deep inside
It seems no faith will spring above this sorrow
The nights are long, the days are grey
No signs of hope shall reign

The morning breeze blows into my hair 
Tall trees towering over me
and life once more she wears
that weary smile on her face

The winter starts to melt but deep inside
It seems no faith will spring above this sorrow
The nights are long, the days are grey
No signs of hope shall reign

And as the years go by, I realize
No faith will ever spring above this sorrow
The nights are long, the days are grey
No signs of hope shall reign
