Track Name: 12th Floor
Death comes for me.

Oh my angel, I am not afraid.
All I want is to fly through the air.
Nothing left there for me and I'm falling into this abyss
Every day since the day I was blessed

Constant moaning that no one can hear
Disillusion in darkness and fear
Only misery kept me from crushing my dreams
And I'm finally ready to shout and confess

"I want to see her eyes again"

Crystal skies
Sacrificed
And turned to dust

Counting steps to the end
No one is holding my hand
Nothing to live for
I'm leaving my memories behind

Eternal creature by my side
I hear her calling from inside
The voice of reason, voice of truth
I am no longer with you

One final step and I'll be fine
This world isn't my realm
While falling into the abyss
I think my ignorance was bliss

These peaceful pictures in my head
Are falling into nothingness
A disappearing silhouette
Like flowers on my grave

She is no longer here. She is no longer anywhere. She doesn't exist. Maybe she never even existed in this mortal life.

Oh my angel, please just go away
I can't take it much longer, I start to decay
It's my final decision and I am much stronger than last time
Nothing can change my mind

No one will say a good word. No priest will say a prayer. Only the choir of the cursed ones will sing a hymn for me, because I'm a sinner and I will suffer forevermore.

The sun is dying (dying)
I want to believe
The sky is crying (crying)
We'll meet again in the afterlife

Oh my angel please tell me the truth
Why are people believing in you?
Is there something that I should've known before
Leaving that dream and forgetting beloved one?

"I'm your servant and here's what I say
Leaving this world is just a delay
And if you commit suicide in that case
You will never see her again"

Eternal creature by my side
I hear her calling from inside
The voice of reason, voice of truth
Я больше не боюсь!

One final step and I'll be fine
This world isn't my realm
While falling into the abyss
I know my ignorance was bliss

These peaceful pictures in my head
Are falling into nothingness
A disappearing silhouette
Like flowers on my grave

Counting steps to the end
No one is holding my hand
Nothing to live for
I'm leaving my memories behind
Track Name: D.O.E.S.
I've set my destination
The city in the skies
The home for winged creation
Where dreams come true before my eyes

My stone, the aquamarine
It glows with magic inside
I know I saw it in my dreams
White city where two worlds collide

I see the sky is turning red
And then the sun appears on the horizon, giving birth to a new day
I won't let, I won't forget
Her eyes, her smile, her voice

I need more concentration
To stay in this place
Time for little demonstration
The rain of burning stars from space

She can explode the sun and
Build a thousand of new
Her heart beats with the pulse of this world
Painting the sky in purple, yellow, white and blue

When darkness fades away
We watch the birth of a new world
And when I hear her words of hope
I promise her to stay the same

The snowflakes on her wings
Are melting slowly like the stars
They disappear in morning skies
I whisper...

When darkness fades away
We watch the birth of a new world
And in the light of day
I promise her to change for good

She whispers in my ear
That she'll be here with me
Who I was meant to be
And what my future holds for me

An everlasting moment in
Dimension of eternal sunrise
A neverending journey through
The cosmic spheres in search of truth

Awakening, beginning a new day
In her embrace again I feel no sadness and no pain
And I'll be back one day, I promised her to stay
To see her purple eyes and then we'll fly across her white skies

When darkness fades away
We watch the birth of a new world
And in the light of day
I promise her to change for good

She whispers in my ear
That she'll be here with me
Who I was meant to be
And what my future holds for me
Track Name: The First Alicorn
Between two mountains in the forest stands a castle made of stone
Where only smartest ponies live and no one sits on sacred throne
They have no masters and no gods, they trust in scientific facts
Their goal is to create another life form without fear and hate

We use intelligence to unite three shapes in one
The most important experiment has just begun
The strength of earth ponies with feathered wings and horn
Another spell, a drop of blood and now it's born

"It's alive!"

Synthetic skin and crystal eyes, an empty look, yet calm inside
Not normal pony anymore, it's stronger, better, modified
Let's test this creature with our magic, fire, thunder, wind and rain
But right before we start let's give it a name

"Artificial Living Intelligence"
Creation of our dreams
Immortal source of magic power
With all three races genes

We will expand our science limits
With the help of this firstborn
Until we figure out what can it do
We call it simple - the ALIcorn

The one who will save our souls
From disbelief, from separation
The one who will raise the sun and moon
And bring the peace to pony nation
Track Name: Enigma
Symbolic visions I trust all my life
Gave me reasons to fight and strength to survive
Every sign of your presence here and there
Like pieces of puzzle, like ghosts in the air

Infected structure, my mind is a maze
Where I'm locked in the darkness. Enigma's erased
Everytime I forget about the light inside
The visions remind me how we've met in the night

Episodes of our journey, searching for the one
Twists and turns through hordes of creatures who never saw the sun

Visible, yet we're becoming invincible, nothing can stop us from using its power
And none of us knows what will happen to world that we know (don't let me go)
Sorrow and silence, the end of his violence, free from his orders forever as one
We've become something more in this alternate world of our own

The secret has been revealed
We have been incarnated
And on this endless field
Our souls were re-created

Enigma, not anymore
We'll reach the destination
Together forevermore
We are divine creation

I saw a thousand of seas in your eyes
And your body was always a perfect disguise
For your soul, for your mind (for what's left behind)
And for something I couldn't find (so confined)

I couldn't be free from neverending strife
Touched the strings of your soul - and now you're alive
Made of dreams with my spirit's persistence
Called by name, brought to fragile existence

We are the nameless souls
We're floating without control
We're scattered across the space
We are ready to erase...

In search of sadness I came to this place
Shared the emptiness with you in silent embrace
Was forgotten like stars in summer sky
Passed through soul deformation and few attempts to die

That night in august I've found you years ago
I remember your smile in the afterglow
I was happy and thought it won't be gone
But it all was a dream and I woke up alone

The secret has been revealed
We have been incarnated
And on this endless field
Our souls were re-created

Enigma, not anymore
We'll reach the destination
Together forevermore
We are divine creation

Enigma has been erased
Track Name: The Darkness
I've let myself drown in anger.
I've put myself into perfect isolation.
I've spent days accumulating my hatred. And then...
I've opened my darkness and let this nightmare begin.

December - it's the time when nature dies
And all the colors fade to black and white
I remember my misery in sleepless night
But what was worse - the lack of any fight

First he was just a voice in my head
And all he wanted was to see her dead
He knew that I will blame myself for doing painful things to her
And I'll carry this guilt forevermore

Five months to take over control
I'm going insane, all I want is to end this pain
That day I realised what could be worse than death
To be a silent witness while he's killing your self
Killing your self.

Can't cry anymore (words stuck in the throat)
I moan, I implore (no one hears my call)
Cannot kill this twin (angel and devil in me)
I've opened my darkness and let this nightmare begin

I have no control and I can't
Kill myself to stop this torture
Screaming angels beg for mercy
Suffering is my misfortune

Not my eyes and not my thoughts
Not my decisions, not my words
Locked in my body, my black cell
I only want to end this hell
Track Name: Song of the Fire
Your soul begins to crystallize
You feel like fire begins to dance around the hooves
And then I look into your eyes
And hypnotized I fall through light in silent move

You've been chosen to find them all
To tell the truth about their purpose
To light the way through darkest halls
And lead the lost ones to the surface

You've been singing the songs of hope
For those who cared and those who left you
And though your light is almost gone
I still believe, I can't forget you

You are the fire, you are the light
You are the music of midnight
You are the image, you are the voice
Far from perfection, you are my choice

Your words inspire me to create
Another song without a word yet full of pain
You bring the fairytale to life
(and all my fears become alive)
Another blinded unicorn becomes insane

Sing before it's too late for me
Play the strings of my soul
Never leave me alone
Sing for this brave new world today
I beg you to stay
Believe me, I know
One day we'll find a way home

You are one of many pegasi
But yet my one and only sister
And if you had to choose, I know
You'd spend your life in the transistor

You have no regrets of what has passed
Suffering never leads to ascension
Make me forget my hideous past
Come on and join me in my dimension

Sing before it's too late for me
Play the strings of my soul
Never leave me alone
Sing for this brave new world today
I beg you to stay
Believe me, I know
One day we'll find a way home
Track Name: Ghosts
I was born in Hoofston on the east coast
But I've left my home and I became a ghost
Travelling and exploring Equestrian zone

My way was always full of danger
Another night I've met a stranger
And she said to me "I love to be alone"

"It's tough to deal with ponies
Who always laugh at you and your show
Another night spend in my wagon
And then another on the go

But when some little foals are smiling
Because they like the tricks I perform
I understand that I'm not one of those
Poor useless unicorns"

Trotting in solitude
With melody of your heart
Long road to oblivion
The pony work of art

Running through emptiness
To find a better place
Straight to oblivion
Where no one knows your face

We've been so long in exile
And we could barely smile
Because our fate was cruel and unfair

"But whatever future holds, remember
Be yourself and never surrender"
That's what I've learned from this blue mare

Sometimes we think we're all alone
Travelling from Las-Pegasus to Griffonstone
Through woods and mountains, down the hill
From Trottingham to Ponyville

We will remember our mistakes
Our fragile past, and if it breaks
We'll be elusive ghosts no more
And our souls will soar

We will soar!

Even the great and powerful unicorns make mistakes
And no matter what they did in the past
They still deserve a second chance

Trotting in solitude
With melody of your heart
Long road to oblivion
The pony work of art

Running through emptiness
To find a better place
Straight to oblivion
Where no one knows your face
Track Name: The Weaver of Time
You all at least know that princess Celestia raises the sun and the moon. Now, we are talking of an alicorn who controls the passage of time named princess Tempora

The winter season comes to land and then the spirit of disharmony returns to evil roots of his past
The massive vortex brought the six of them to Ponyville where everything was twisted and was full of contrasts
The heat and cold, two seasons mixed together in one place
The wanderers can't solve this puzzle of time and space
There was no time before the golden sands of storm approached and it has put those little ponies under threat
Protected by the magic shield and slowly going further suddenly they saw a blurred silhouette

Rusted armor, hourglass on her chest, body is mutilated
Standing in the eye of the storm of time she probably created
Her fur is covered with cracks and her mane is glowing with light blue stripes
We thought there are no more alicorns, but the truth breaks our stereotypes

"No! Stop coming back!
You see what you've done! The time is collapsing on us!
Now our home was destroyed,
But we must stay strong and keep the things under focus!

We've always acted alone!
We've always been alone! This is the problem you've created -
Descending of our world,
And now we need to keep the present, future and past separated"

Ah, there! The tale of the Weaver of Time - Princess Tempora! She continually uses her magic so that the time would follow a succession and not get tangled in a knot of possible past, present and future events

Without the elements of harmony they can't prevent the aftermath and then Nightmare Moon is back
But she was not the only one who has returned from deeper past - there is Queen Chrysalis with changelings pack
Black crystals rise, King Sombra joins the battle on the shore
And Tirek's wrath pushed every single soul to begin the war
Even Celestia and Luna cannot help to figure out what's going on in this eternal madness
The only one who is responsible for time is disappearing with her world in ethereal blackness

"Your magic of friendship has revealed something unknown
Ever since we exist we didn't know we were on our own"

"No! Stop coming back!
You see what you've done! The time is collapsing on us!
Now our home was destroyed,
But we must stay strong and keep the things under focus!

We've always acted alone!
We've always been alone! This is the problem you've created -
Descending of our world,
And now we need to keep the present, future and past separated"

"What..?! It's not coming from here... Our kingdom... No... No!.."

"We didn't realize... This was not supposed to go this fast..!"

"Nothing separates Equestria from our world now... And if we continue like this, there will be only oblivion!.."
Track Name: Tower of Endlessness
I woke up in a cold and dark place surrounded by misty emptiness. Weakened and scared I went further and further until I've found this place. A big old tower made of stone and wood. The door wasn't locked so I came in. What I saw next had amazed and impressed me so much, I couldn't say a word.

Embraced and surrounded by darkness of the night
Stone cold old tower with secrets inside
Blinded by a gleaming staircase to the top
I was running and running, not going to stop

The shadow - in a moment he was gone
Black alicorn - I know what he's done
The prisoner was crying over my head
I had to save her before she was dead

Climbing and climbing
Breathing deeper and deeper
Higher and higher
Light up my steps

Running and running
Strings illuminating
Praying and whispering
Calling by name

Once you stepped into this world
You became my prisoner
And all your dreams have turned to dust
You're a helpless creature

And all your visions disappear
Left with a bitter taste of loss
You'll forever be stuck with me
In the tower of endlessness

I couldn't believe my eyes. It was a black alicorn, he was standing right there, staring at me with its evil eyes. And it spoke to me with its raspy voice. "I was waiting for you, and now you're finally here. You have something that belongs to me. And with this thing I'll become almighty and invincible. Give it to me, or you'll die in suffering”

Climbing, climbing
I need to save her
I will never
Surrender to him

Running, running
Fireflies illuminating
On my way, I'm crying and
Calling her name

The light has blinded my eyes
Its voice so disgusting and my hope slowly dies
Her screams in my head were so loud
I need to resist him and find a way out

Once you stepped into this world
You became my prisoner
And all your dreams have turned to dust
You're a helpless creature

And all your visions disappear
Left with a bitter taste of loss
You'll forever be stuck with me
In the tower of endlessness
Track Name: Selena
When sun disappears and we witness the fading of light
We whisper her name and we welcome the mistress of night
The dreams we are facing brought by our princess tonight
The candlelight softly embraces the darkness inside

Once the daylight's gone, comes my night adventure
She draws surreal landscapes
Bringing joyful dreams from my dimension
And sometimes nightmares I can't escape

She's leaving signs for me, but I feel like blinded
By her dark blue shimmering mane
I must stay sincere and open minded
Believing in dreams I'm going insane

I'm your loyal devotee with wounded heart
I will face my darkest fears and tear them apart
Your moon shines in winter sky so calm and bright
I sing this song for you tonight

Fill my heart with desire
Lift me up and take me higher
Give me strength to overcome my fears
Embrace my mind then purify and watch my dreams go by

Once I close my eyes, everything is fading
Body's gone and so is my mind
And then the ghosts are slowly invading
The past I cannot leave behind

She's taking me to the world of perfection
Where I'm finding a part of my soul
Just like staring at my own reflection
In this theatre of moon I play my role

Deep inside of her subconsciousness
Lies the truth about the nature of dreams
And when she leads me through the open door
I'm not afraid anymore

I'm your loyal devotee with wounded heart
I will face my darkest fears and tear them apart
Your moon shines in winter sky so calm and bright
I sing this song for you tonight

When sun disappears and we witness the fading of light
We whisper her name and we welcome the mistress of night
The dreams we are facing brought by our princess tonight
The candlelight softly embraces the darkness inside

Fill my heart with desire
Lift me up and take me higher
Give me strength to overcome my fears
Embrace my mind then purify and watch my dreams go by

Moonlight's gone but still I'm dreaming
From that nightmare I am screaming
Give me strength to resurrect my soul
Embrace my mind then purify and watch the world goes by
Track Name: Heaven and Hell (C.C.Catch cover) (Bonus track)
Heaven can be cold
Baby, baby, when you lose control
Everybody needs someone to love
Be carefull in the nights

He can't hurt you more
Baby, baby, as he did before
Come on, baby, keep your hands of him
In the gypsy nights
It will come and go
Everybody knows

You make your own
Heaven and hell
Daytime lovers love for sale
You make your own
Heaven and hell
Letters full of tears will tell
He takes your heart
I know him well
You've got no time to lose
For heaven and hell

Behind a painted smile
Baby, baby, he's running wild
Everybody needs some love tonight
Be carefull in the nights

He don't want to lose
Baby, baby, it's a simply news
Come on, baby, keep your hands of him
In the gypsy nights
It will come and go
Everybody knows
