1. New Old Dalliance

I invite you to take part in our new old dalliance.
Prejudice and intolerance are all that you must warrant.
The only rule is the demise of every one whoís guilty for the crimes against our peace and youíre the one who judge felons.

Letís kill the white and then the black, the redÖ why not the yellow?
Letís put the jew to death, the christian and moslem too.
Letís kill the atheist and the hinduÖ even the buddhist.

Letís celebrate the death of who is left and who is right and more.
The death of whoís to say that our game is wrong.

So we can free the world from the curs, hypocrites and liars, although I wonder if someone will last to clean the coarse blood shed on the dust.

Letís kill the communist, the capitalist and then the terrorist.
Letís slay the nazi downÖ the imperialist too.
Letís kill the anarchist, the selfish oneÖ even the nihilist.

Letís celebrate the death of whoís to laugh and who is frowning on.
The death of these fools daring to play this song.

So we can free the world from the curs, hypocrites and liars, although I wonder if someone will last to clean the coarse blood shed on the dust.

(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




2. The Greatest Show On Earth

The Greatest Show On Earth

Be welcome to the show tonight.
We're glad to have you here.
Just pay attention, please, my lord, and see what's coming for you
jugglers, acrobats, tamers, magicians, dancing on the rope, daring the death.

We play with poverty and crime, the starving misery.
Don't try to do this in your home.
I know your mind would not stand the pain.


In my world, behind all the makeup there's a face so sad.
See the clown laughing at the ruin.


Now, see how we dance and play,
braving the threats and dangers,
avoiding the final day,
deceiving until the end.


Now we'll close the act.
Iit's time to applaud.

I hope you have enjoyed our show.
The greatest show on earth.
Sempre és bem vindo para ver nossa aventura que é o viver.


Meu senhor, atrás do meu sorriso, guardo apenas dor (My Lord, behind my grin, I keep only grief).
Sou um palhaço, rir é minha sina (I am a clown, my fate is to laugh).


Não, nunca vou desistir (No, I will never give up).
Se o sonho me leva a chorar, melhor saber fingir (If the dream makes me cry, it's better know how to pretend).
Rir de mim afinal (Laughing at me after all).


Now, see how we stand and pray,
braving the streets and dangers,
awaiting the final day,
enduring until the end.


(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão - the excerpts in red are actually sung in portuguese)




3. Trash Man

Once I heard somebody say: Why donít you just die?
Since that day, this grievous question rumbles in my mind.

You can hate meÖ you can love me, but cannot drive my life.
Listen to the words I sing now as I clean out my heart.

I will change my future picking up the things once I gave away.
Iím carving a new self, reaping all the shadows of my past.

You canít see whatís in your face... Your precious garbage is insane.
What you despise makes me alive... I am the Trash Man.

I will change my future reaping all the shadows of my past.
Iím carving a new self, picking up the crumbs, scars, shards and lies.

While you live a proper life, your petty existence, I obey my random fate that you deem inconsequence.
You love to rate your conscience so clear, but does this count if you donít use it?
I do prefer an endless puzzle as I may shuffle and piece my world.

You say nobody can live someone elseís life.
So why do you live this guile?
Tell me envious mind.
I know nobody can die someone elseís death.

You canít see whatís in your face... Your precious garbage is insane.
What you despise makes me alive... I am the Trash Man.

While you live a proper life, your petty existence, I obey my random fate that you deem inconsequence.
You love to rate your conscience so clear, but does this count if you donít use it?
I do prefer an endless puzzle as I may shuffle and piece my world.

(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




4. Em Frente Ao Espelho

Toda vez, em frente ao espelho, um outro alguém me espreita e diz que o tempo há tempos se foi e todo o meu tempo foi em vão.
Sempre a desilusão vai me acompanhar e meus passos perdidos sempre hei de chorar.
Sei que eu não vou viver tudo que eu quis, mas vivo os meus dias por poder sonhar.

O que vem à sua mente, então, quando você pensa na morte?
Você sente medo ou fica em paz em seu mundo de ilusão?
Há quem viva sempre sem saber que já morto segue vivendo.
Mero sentimento que apenas (às vezes) faz com que menor seja o sofrer.

Não venha me dizer sobre ser feliz, pois, sendo sempre o mesmo, passado é o que se vê.
De que vale uma vida inteira com a certeza daquilo que se faz se a dúvida é o que me fascina e o erro é o que me faz andar?
Sei que eu vou sofrer, mais uma vez chorar, mas até o fim dos dias sempre hei de sonhar.

O que vem à sua mente, então, quando você pensa na morte?
Você sente medo ou fica em paz em seu mundo de ilusão?
Há quem viva sempre sem saber que já morto segue vivendo.
Mero sentimento que apenas (às vezes) faz com que menor seja o sofrer.

(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




5. Addiction To War

There is an ache inside your head just beating all the time.
You know the cure is in your hands.
The bell begins to chime.
You do believe you are the one who's going to save our souls.
All you can hear is the inner toll.
You must to kill our foes.

As I sit down here on the gutter, I can see the death falling thru the sky and I wonder where they are rushing,as I take one more swig of my cheap wine.

There is so pride inside your heart smothering your mind.
You know our lives are in your hands.
Redeemer of mankind.
You do believe you are the one who's going to save our land,
just ending all the tyranny, dictating the new trend.

But you don't care about the pain.
It's your addiction to war and you don't care about the fear and the kill and the hope and the scars.

I'm looking inside the bottle, the fly is struggling hard and, as I drown all my hunger, the fighter is dead.
You want the power to rule all the lands and the crowds and into greed you will die drowned as the fly.

There is a war inside your head just striking all the time.
You know the cure is in your hands.
Only you can hush the chime.
You do believe you are the one who's going to tame the world.
Why can't you hear the cry of earth and listen to my words?

As I sit down here on the gutter, every blue and green turns to red and gray and I wonder where's my last bottle, as I hear the sound of the final day.

But you don't care about the cry.
It's your addiction to war and you don't care about the love and the hate and the fall and the loss.

I'm looking inside the bottle, the fly is struggling hard and, as I drown all my hunger, the fighter is dead.
You want the power to rule all the lands and the crowds and into greed you will die drowned as the fly.

Do you believe you are the one who's going to tame the world?
Why can't you hear the cry of earth and listen to my words?

And you don't care.
It's your addiction to war.


(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




6. Year Of The Monkey

Can you tell me where's the future that I had before?
I remember when I was so younger and today would be a new outset.

I remember when the world was coming to the end and two thousand was the final year.
Was the prophet wrong or are we dead?

Has the judgment day come and I did not enjoy or did you lose the Year of The Dragon?
Holy father, tell me after all.

Has Armageddon failed? Is this like a post reality?
Or is this just our hell where in pain we'll be eternally?

How many years we have to roam spilling hate while we grin?
Can't you see our time is gone? We must pay for all our sins

The rats are harder, dragons fly high, but the messiah was a monkey.

Now I grieve yearning for the fourth millennium, waiting for the Year of The Monkey.
When mankind will finally break down.

I remember when we rose from the frosty cave and I hope to see us back in that den.
How I long for our pristine end!!!

I guess there's a new chaos and this is a post reality
Please, tell me this is our hell where in pain we'll be eternally

How many years we have to roam spilling blood across the lands?
Can't you see our task is done? Let the time just run its sands...


(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




7. My Sweetest Love

Vejo o sol no horizonte.
Meu caminho eu trilho só, nesta canção.
Com a saudade do que não vai mais voltar e a esperança de um amor que há de chegar.

Não pergunte aonde vou... Não quero o seu pesar
Vou seguir meu coração e o som do velho mar.

As I rush through the sea, I can see the moon tears in the skyline.
How Iím longing for the night when Iíll finally lie by her side.

My Sweetest Love.
Her name is Death.

(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




8. Someone To Lay Flowers

I found a body last night downfallen in the dark.
I tried to help but what I saw made me run away in pain.
My eyes descried my own face and before that mien not even cry.
Still feeling the acrid smell of death, I kept on my way, tearing my heart.

Now I guess they are digging down the earth and I wonder if there's someone around, someone crying and mourning for this fate, someone to lay flowers on the ground.
Let me die to see if there's someone shedding tears for me, someone lighting candles over the grave, someone carving in stone my holy name.

The rain is the only wailing (Tears falling in the dark).
I'll die alone and all my deeds will be buried down with me.
My eyes descry my whole life and staring the scene they start to cry.
Just feeling the blame for my solitude, swearing at myself, tearing my heart.

Now I guess they are digging down the earth and I wonder if there's someone around, someone crying and mourning for this fate, someone to lay flowers on the ground.
Let me die to see if there's someone shedding tears for me, someone lighting candles over the grave, someone carving in stone my holy name.

Let me die to see if there's someone shedding tears for me, someone lighting candles over the grave, someone carving in stone my holy name.

I heard someone is mourning (A whisper in the dark).
The lady weeps and her sweet tears make me throw away the pain.
My eyes burst out just crying and spitting my scream I set me free.
Still hearing the echoes of her voice, I keep on my way, cheering my heart.


(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)




9. Another Stormy Night

Now we must keep sailing, there are many seas we have to gain, high waves to plow, misguiding tides to turn.
Bow your head to our new crowd, we're ready to go and bear away.
Hoisted flag, we are too proud, steering down to the horizon.

Another stormy night, so prove your goals are just true, close your eyes and stay your course in sight.

So we must keep sailing, there are many fears we have to stare, hard dangers to face, so many ventures to find.
Say farewell to all your friends, we're ready to board and leave the bay.
Weighing anchor, gripping bends, steering down to the horizon.

Another stormy night, so prove your goals are just true, close your eyes and stay your course in sight.

Cruising on the raging seas of life, I saw many mates losing heart.
Heavy weather, doldrums, storms and lies, none of this will take me out of my mind.

Another stormy night, so prove your goals are just true, close your eyes and stay your course in sight.

So we must keep striving, there are many dreams to realize, new songs to be sung and strange places to find.
So we must keep sailing forever and a day.

I still remember all the lands I arrived in every shadow of my heart.


(music by Drearylands; words by Leo 'Lion' Leão)
