(Part I - Echoes On The Wind)

(Tom Englund:) It's the calm before the storm
It's the quiet before the war
It's the time when all will be decided
(Steve Lee:) All will be decided
(Tom Englund:) If nobody heeds the echoes on the wind

(Tom Englund:) It's the end of the chain
(Steve Lee:) Destruction of the fittest
(Tom Englund:) It's the end of our reign
(Steve Lee:) We've seen it all before
(Tom Englund:) It's the end of man's evolution
(Steve Lee:) The end of the evolution
(Tom Englund:) For nobody heeds the echoes on the wind

(Part II - Radioactive Grave)

(Hansi Kürsch:) Do you hear the sirens?
(Daniel Gildenlöw:) Do you see the burst?
(Steve Lee:) Do you feel the fire?
(Jonas Renkse:) All the world's a radioactive grave!

(Tom Englund:) I can hear them crying!
(Bob Catley:) I can see the fear!
(Jørn Lande:) I can feel them dying!
(Jonas Renkse:) Washed away by deadly gamma waves!

(Hansi Kürsch:) Do you hear them calling?
(Daniel Gildenlöw:) Do you see the hurt?
(Steve Lee:) Do you feel them failing?
(Jonas Renkse and Floor Jansen:) All the world's a blazing funeral pyre!

(Tom Englund:) I can hear the wailing!
(Bob Catley:) I can see the wrath!
(Jørn Lande:) I can feel them failing!
(Jonas Renkse And Floor Jansen:) Washed away by a scorching sea of fire!

(Hansi Kürsch:) Do you hear the sirens?
(Daniel Gildenlöw:) Do you see the burst?
(Steve Lee:) Do you feel the fire?
(Jonas Renkse And Floor Jansen:) All the world's a radioactive grave!

(Tom Englund:) I can hear them crying
(Bob Catley:) I can see the fear
(Jørn Lande:) I can see them dying
(Jonas Renkse And Floor Jansen:) Washed away by deadly gamma waves!
All the world's a blazing funeral pyre!
Washed away by a scorching sea of fire!

(Part III - 2085)

(Jonas Renkse:)
Silence so loud, not a soul... left alive
Darkness a shroud... 2085
All our dreams have disappeared
They burned down, tree of life
Confirming all that we have feared... 2085

(Bob Catley:)
Don't give up, remember how we felt
Fire rushing through our veins
Now's the time to rise up from our hell
Now's the time to free our brains

(Steve Lee:)
The meaning of life is to give life meaning
Go too fast, move too slow
Restore the balance between thinking and feeling,
Open up and let it flow

(Jonas Renkse:)
No side has won, struggle to... survive
Our quest here is done... 2085
All our hopes have disappeared
Our race will... not thrive
Time will not recall year... 2085

(Daniel Gildenlöw:)
Don't give in, remember all we learned
The spark of life it did ignite
We regained the rage for which we yearned
We regained our will to fight

(Jørn Lande:)
We must resolve this human equation
We're already dead if we don't try
To welcome challenge, generic variation
Stop the machines, prepare to die!

(Part IV - To The Planet Of Red)

(Instrumental)

(Part V - Spirit On The Wind)

(Tom Englund:) He's the last man alive
(Steve Lee:) Searching for the answers
(Tom Englund:) Knowing he won't survive
(Steve Lee:) To the mystery of life
(Tom Englund:) Relives the past, and dreams of the future
(Steve Lee:) Dreaming of the future
(Tom Englund:) And soon he'll set free
(Steve Lee:) And the sleeper will awake
(Tom Englund:) His spirit on the wind

(Part VI - Complete The Circle)

(All:)
Make us whole, Migrator soul
Follow me home, complete the circle
We must survive, restore our lives
The way I'll show, complete the circle

(Hansi Kürsch:)
Send back visions
Into the past
Of war and decay

(Floor Jansen:)
Hear the final cries!
I can see the fear
In a world without walls

(Anneke Van Giersbergen:)
Through their eyes

(Tom Englund:)
I see them dying
We have to teach them
Migrator soul

(Daniel Gildenlöw:)
We regained our will to fight
We regained...
We found a way

(Steve Lee:)
I know we'll make it in the end
Listen to the warning

(Bob Catley:)
We gave them language
What did they say?
What did they learn?

(Jørn Lande:)
We have no choice
We are the future
We are the pain
Complete the Circle

(Steve Lee:) Ah!
