Prisoner of fantasy (François Vachon) ... In the middle of the night Beneath the frozen moonlight... Wide awake in my dreams Something’s calling me Behind the wall of sleep... Chorus : Hear the madness coming from the woods Fear the shadow whispering the truth Every time I think, I die I fall into infinity Every time I wish, I die Prisoner of fantasy ... In a city out of time The tower in the blackened skies... A dark age of mystery A mystic prophecy A dream within a dream... Demon star Precious guide... Below the sea The creature awaits in its sleep... Chorus : Hear the madness, the frogs croak in tune Fear the dark spell hidden in the runes Every time I think, I die I fall into infinity Every time I wish, I die Prisoner of fantasy

Life, as we see it (François Vachon) The words you’ve just spoken Are haunting me There is no real distance Between dreams we share (Chorus): It’s not too late To change your mind Life, as you see it, is a settin’ sun Life, as we see it, is a settin’ sun As far as I can remember You’ve always trusted me Believe me, you’re strong enough Learn from your mistakes (Chorus): It’s not too late To change your mind Life, as you see it, is a settin’ sun Life, as we see it’ is a settin’ sun You said: “I’m afraid to become a person I’d hate I’ll run away ‘til there is no escape”... Follow me now And shine into the settin’ sun There is no real distance Between dreams we share

The price to pay (François Vachon) Look around Everything’s falling down We need something new Chorus: This is the price to pay To live your own way For every shot you make Ten you must take We are doomed By powers that confuse We still need something new How can we transcend These dark illusions To create a world We’d like to live in ??? Chorus: This is the price to pay To live your own way For every shot you make Ten you must take

The Spectre 05:10
The Spectre (François Vachon) (Year 33. Excerpts from a statement that Tiberius, Emperor of Rome, sent to Pontius Pilate, Prosecutor of the Empire, in Jerusalem…) ... Three days after his death They found an empty tomb... Alive? Resurrected??? How could this be true??? (Pilate, lost in his thoughts, while reading the statement): “... If he has survived Well, where is he??? And who’s behind this resurrection???... ... He will rise... And blood will spill... He’ll lead the people to rebellion...” ... Upon the crooss, he did not die... ... There was a conspiracy to save his life... Chorus: He’s the one who has chosen To bring power to the people Revolution, sacrifice; an endless light The Spectre has returned... (Quite nervous and confused, Pilate wrote back to the Emperor in order to reassure him, as well as himself, that he was doing his best to keep everything under control)... (Choir) : TRUTH IS BEYOND “... He holds a power his death has increased...” (Choir): WORDS OF WISDOM “... Controversy...” (Choir): TRUTH IS BEYOND “... The people have a desperate need to believe...” (Choir): WORDS OF WISDOM “... The spectre’s come to set them free...” Chorus: He’s the one who has chosen To bring power to the people Revolution, sacrifice; an endless light The Spectre has returned...

A play with masked shapes (François Vachon) Its cold at night When the city’s sleeping A moonlit night... In our dreams They break the wall of sleep Characters are watching in our dreams The gate is open... Into the spotlight Enter the masked shapes Pantomimes... In our dreams They set all the scenes Characters are playing in our dreams The show will begin... Chorus: In the dark of consciousness Twilight of the soul Realm of all secrets The theater holds... Imagination... Change in perception... A new dimension... When the curtain falls... “Welcome inside The circus of your mind Though there’s no crowd There is a play tonight There’s nothing more to believe What you feel is real By magic you are here Now, we disappear” “By magic we are here Now, we disappear By magic we are here The echoes of a dream...”

Kingdom of a million stars (François Vachon) Beneath the waves of sleep Flowing with the stream A ship of forgotten dreams Is sailing to new destinies Chorus: This promised land We wish to find A secret Island In the kingdom of a million stars Sailing to distant shores Across the Universe To nourish the flowers of sand With waters from hidden realms Chorus: This promised land We wish to find A secret garden In the Kingdom of a million stars Through visions from this memory We’re given clues to find the key To open the dream chest we keep From childhood to eternal sleep Beneath the waves of sleep Flowing with the stream A ship of forgotten dreams Is sailing to new destinies Chorus: This promised land We wish to find A secret Island In the kingdom of a million stars

Monte Cristo 05:04
Monte Cristo (François Vachon) I’m the one who was betrayed Why was I blamed? I was just a young sailor Not asking much of life Just a pawn in a twisted game A sacrifice Chorus: I’m trying to keep the faith To find the answers I am on my way to nail them all... They stole my life away They used me They jealously have sealed your fate Its just too bad for them This, I cannot forgive Your vengeance and justice prevail Chorus: In my dreams I’m with you My heart bleeds Without you I’m not a traitor To either man or God I’ve come to warn them I return for my dues I’m the avenger Pitiless and cold I’ll play with their minds And make them wish I’d die... Chorus: I’m trying to keep the faith To find the answers I am on my way to nail them all...

DAHAKA (Guardian of the Timeline) (François Vachon) Narration: “Sometimes it was whispered Sometimes it was read The secret incantation That filled many with dread If you knew it If you used it You could reach back To recreate your life’s track But stop and think If, with conceit, Sole master of your destiny you would be Dahaka is released Dahaka, the Guardian of the Timeline, Eternally preserving the order unfolding within time No one escapes the Dahaka...” Chorus: Now that the beast is rising Seeking this prey through time Always covered in darkness The storm demon strikes I cast that spell And change my fate Now forever damned My life is an endless running away Chorus: Now that the beast is rising Seeking this prey through time Always covered in darkness The storm demon strikes Death’s stalking me But I won’t be its slave Now just a wraith My life is an endless running away Chorus: Now that the beat is rising Seeking this prey through time Always covered in darkness The storm demon strikes

Demon Hunt 03:51
Demon hunt (François Vachon) Into the circles, better be quick Chased by the devil, no time to waste The Beast-awful, there’s blood on its blade Better beware of all its tricks Time has come for him to shine The prosecutor of mankind The dark black evil seeds were sown In the world of men Corporate empires were built to rule the land Our demons have grown We shan’t be slaves to them No! We shan’t be slaves to them Evil, at its roots, is fed by fear The shape of the Beast may change But, it is always near... Demon hunt...
