Prologue 02:32
Vocals: Brian Tears crystallised, they make me gaze to coloured skies I nearly failed to end my quest Betrayal made me crash against the rocks I was put to the final test A brand new sunrise just awoke the butterfly I found the strength and faced my fears I put my faith in love and truth after all these years The seventh wave just did the rest

Betrayed 01:42

Vocals: Brian and Erik How many did you send? On this road to perdition How much did you spend? Building these dungeons? I see your vulture eyes Without a glimpse of mercy Did you ever come to the rescue? Or did you enjoy letting us drown? Your web of lies Got me paralyzed Your ice cold eyes Sent me straight to hell Your web of lies Destroyed my paradise But hear my cries I will be free again! Now don’t you hate yourself? Climbing on your vicious ladder By sending good men Descending into hell When I close my eyes I can hear your treacherous lies Ripping out your filthy tongue I’ll walk on thorns to fulfill my deepest desire Your web of lies Got me paralyzed Your ice cold eyes Sent me straight to hell Your web of lies Destroyed my paradise But hear my cries I will be free again! I despise your insidious lies Will you choose the road to freedom? I will find no rest until I see you die Or will revenge be the road ahead? For your web of lies You will pay the price I'll get you by surprise And gouge out your vulture eyes Before you realize I'll cut your tongue with a razor knife And then I hear your cries And I I'll be free again

Vocals: Brian and Erik Did you honestly believe I could forget this cesspit of lies? Every minute, every hour Every day and every single moment I am plotting my revenge For all these years of awe and pain Never getting back to him Would be a nightmare driving me insane [The Priest] You’re so wrong my son When you believe revenge will bring you true freedom Be aware you will be consumed By the hatred, they’ve sowed into you I just know I ‘ll be free! No more pain and agony But he will have to pay his price While the truth will burn his eyes When I close my eyes I can see him hanging in chains Begging for mercy Just let me fight You don´t have any right To take away my last ray of hope [The Priest] Now take a look at yourself Being trapped in your prison of hate Sealing of your fate If you give in to your grudges They will have won What will be left of your freedom?

In Solitary 06:15
Vocals: Erik and Brian These chains pull me to the ground And my brain keeps fooling me around Only in my dreams I can still find some light This rage is driving me insane This cage, do they really have no shame I have to believe in an impossible flight Breaking these walls and escaping this endless night Chorus Fly towards the sky There is nothing to hold you Now you just try Little butterfly And live your life for me Your face, a forgotten memory And your voice stopped echoing in me How much they ever try to break my will These bars won’t stop me from dreaming to fly from here He’s desperately struggling and fighting insanity Will he be able to hold on to dignity? Chorus Fly towards the sky There is nothing to hold you Please don’t be shy Little butterfly Fly towards the sky There is nothing to hold you Please don’t be shy Little butterfly Yes I want you to fly Cause your freedom is there for you Now you just try Little butterfly And live your life for me

Escape 05:14

Vocals: Erik and Brian You should know my desire to explain This impossible dream I am reaching out but it’s in vain Paradise is what I’ve seen Why I can´t comfort you? When you’re lonely and afraid Let me wipe your tears And dream of taking you away Chorus Let us love for just one night I’ll caress you like a million times, with all my heart The safety of my chains Will I ever break free? And let us live this dream For eternity Are we not meant to be? Your image haunts me all day Wherever I try to hide I hear you whispering my name On the darkest days I fight Why can’t I stroke your hair? And tell you it’s OK Let me touch your smile And dream of running away Chorus So let us love for one more night I’ll caress you like a million times, with all my heart The safety of my chains Will I ever break free? Then let us live this dream For eternity Are we not meant to be? Live your voice Kiss your tears Sense your smile Taste your skin Stroke your hair Breathe your scent Live this dream I can’t believe We’re not meant to be Why don’t you come with me? We can discover paradise I can’t believe We’re not meant to be Why don’t you come with me? One more time One more time This is the moment You’ll have to decide You can leave me Or stay in paradise Now please think about it More carefully One more time One more time One last time One last time Then, as you walk from me I hear you whispering my name Will you understand? I’ll have to go my own way? The butterfly won’t fly today Will paradise be lost? Only time will tell Will we be one someday? Lost paradise?

Vocals: Brian and Erik What can I do? I see wind and waves and certain death Small piece of land And an ocean full of threats What should I do? I see no escape from this bare place No more new plans Can I live with this disgrace? Why did I discard paradise? Lived in perfect harmony She was the love of my life And the future looked so bright I admit that he was right Fell prey to my pride Brought me nothing but despair No strength to fight Chorus No way out of here No way to turn the tide I can see no light I see waves of destruction, Trapped in here for life No way out of here Shall I give up my fight? I see sharks of perdition Can I find some light? What do I care? If surrender is my only choice Hope drifts away Is what the waves seem to say Is there anybody who would care? There is nobody and nothing left Should I jump and dive Who would care if I’d survive? Then at night I dream of a magic world And I find the desired spell The entire world starts moving Like a giant roundabout I see flashes of light And they put it all right They make my fervid wish coming out Chorus No way out of here No way to turn the tide I can see no light I see waves of destruction, Trapped in here for life No way out of here Shall I give up my fight? I can see no light I see sharks of perdition Where can I find some light? But then there’s something really changing me Something in the air, above the Atlantic sea Reminding me of my sacred vow: try to escape someway somehow Can’t let it slip away You won’t believe it but she is telling me Her voice it’s really there, across the Atlantic sea “Remember you would not give in; you would not fail, not for one day Don’t let it slip away” I need a way out of here I'll have to turn the tide It's clear now she was right I won't let it slip away I won't give up my fight I need a way out of here I'll have to turn the tide It's clear now she was right I won't let it slip away I won't give up my fight

Vocals: Brian Been here for hours to get the feeling Been here for days won’t you return Been here all night to watch a difference in your landscape I got a feeling of delight Already thought I had you figured out So glad I ran it through the test This dummy butterfly just crashed against the rocks I almost thought of giving up Chorus You are my star It took some time to understand you But finally I know that you will not deceive me You ’ll be my guide And I’ll dive into the air Fluttering high then Feel you all around The pattern that I see It’s just like a promise that you keep every time In your arms I know I will be safe I look in your eyes Feel your love in every single vein And know it’s right Freedom lies beyond the seventh wave The extra tests support my theory Just to eliminate the doubt The calculation every time it was correct Now it is time to face the fact

Wings to Fly 05:09
Vocals: Brian and Erik Still alive can you hear me Echoes of my thoughts so far away A thousand miles between us I wonder how you are Still looking out over the open ocean Oh you will never know Stretching out your wings no more fear Oh you will never know The magic of the words I still hear Chorus Don’t you know you’ll never make it? I said: don’t you know I’m gonna find a way All that you see I’m gonna solve this riddle One day you’ll learn The hunger for freedom Will give you wings to fly The wings to fly Right to the sky One more time One last time I am free again Still alive thinking about you Echoes of a time so far away A thousand years have passed since I’m on the other side Free and looking out over the open ocean Oh you will never know The winds caress my heart they tickle me Oh you will never know Like love in a higher degree Chorus Don’t you know you’ll never make it? I said: don’t you know that I have found a way? All that I feel All that I’ve found I still hope One day you’ll learn The hunger for freedom Gave me the-wings to fly The wings to fly Right to the sky Wings to fly

about

Beyond the Seventh Wave is a concept album of more than 60 minutes with as theme the hunger for freedom so common to man kind. It is based and inspired by books and movies of people being innocently convicted such as "Escape from Alcatraz", "Fugitive" and "The Next Three Days". But most of all, it is inspired by the story of Papillion, a Frenchman convicted for life forced labor for a crime he did not commit. He escaped several times but was destined to live his days on "Devil Island". Would he finally escape?
