Daylight 06:00
When we caught the train, not a soul was wiring there When we boarded the train, only silence on the air We are the hurt, the lost, the forgotten ones Still, we remain, waiting for the day to break The book of truth, has washed up on the shore And we can't find the page, cause we don't know what we're looking for So many shadows, where people used to be Can you see the daylight? Are we finally free? We travel carefully, among the fallen souls No time for saying prayers, no time for digging holes We hide away at night - breathing in the dark Monsters in our dreams, and monsters in the park Daylight - when do you think we will finally be free Daylight - open the casket and see to believe Alright - these are the rules that we play by today Daylight - do you believe you are free If you think you've lost your patience Take a look at these creations Inside-out, upside-down, this world is lost You won't be found Oh, where's your courage? Where's your fight? One more relic, one more night This battleground, which used to be our home Will be our tomb, in which we all will roam, Unless we get out now - face the dark and run They'll take us one by one, before the day is done Inside-out, upside-down, this world is lost You won't be found

Born of these Northern lands, Tracing the line back to the time When the Gods of old still roamed They've come here before They'll come here again With an iron hand Destined to rule these lands The blood in my veins is the blood of kings I've come here before, I'll come here again With an iron hand Out of the mist they came, Sailing across the sea from the land Where the Gods of old still roamed They've come here before They'll come here again With an iron hand Leaving the land in flames Riding across the plains To the place that I call home They've come here before They'll come here again With an iron hand I am a Lord of the North I am a Lord of the North This land will always belong to me This land will always be free Always be free This land will always belong to me This land will always be free I am a Lord of the North I am a Lord of the North

I am the sleeper, and I wait in silence Claw down much deeper, and you'll find some violence It lives in my mind, and in the walls of this cell They tell me to jump, I say how high? They bring the day, then close down the night Waiting for something, or someone to give me a sign Hiding in shadows, waiting in line Well you keep me in the dark With a blade against my heart But the minute you turn your back I'll tear your world apart Let the sleeper awake Let the sleeper awake I'm in the distance, I hear your lies A sleeper awakening, with one eye on the prize Let the sleeper awake Look for the sign Let the sleeper awake Run for your life Let the sleeper awake Don't turn your back Let the sleeper awake Don't close your eyes Let the sleeper awake Look for the sign Run for your life Don't turn your back Don't close your eyes Let the sleeper awake Let the sleeper awake

Over again, when will this end They're there in my mind, they're right behind me Something is stirring way down inside The memories waking taking hold of your mind Nothing has changed yet nothing's the same It's all gone to hell but it all seems so sane The light's going down, the shadows are long There isn't a sound yet it's screaming your names Close all the doors, turn on the lights Don't open your eyes it can see in the night The nightmares begun, you can't go on You feel all alone when you're out of the Sun A darkness so old, a terrible cold Twisting and turning and tearing your soul Rattle around, you're trapped in a cage Can't feel the ground, it's a dreamer's rage Out of your head, inside your mind You can't control the fear of nothing Fear of nothing Over again, when will this end They're there in my mind, they're right behind me Something is stirring way down inside The memories waking taking hold of your mind Nothing has changed yet nothing's the same It's all gone to hell but it all seems so sane The light's going down, the shadows are long There isn't a sound yet it's screaming your names Out of your head, inside your mind You can't control the fear of nothing Out of your mind, inside your head You can't control the fear of nothing Fear of nothing

It's quiet here, like living inside a picture frame Where the colours never fade I can do it here, live life any way I choose to and the colours never fade Pick your vice, been there before Name your price, I don't keep score There is no shame, I feel no pain No black or white, just shades of grey shades of grey How was I to know what would happen to the man I used to be as the colurs start to fade They can see it now as I start to reap the pain I sow when the colours start to fade I picked my vice, you've been there before I named my price, you kept the score I hide in shame, I feel your pain No black or white, just shades of grey What you see is who I am What I see is what I want Who he is will set me free What I see is what I want to be What you see is who I am What I see is what I want Who he is will set me free What I see is what I want to be I see it now, what I have to do to make amends as the colours start to fade I must do it now or face the wrath of those I've wronged as the colours are ablaze No matter the vice, what was it for Despite the price, you wiped the score There is no shame, I feel no pain No black or white, just shades of grey Shades of grey

We know the glow of burning cities And we know the ravages of war When trouble comes and tears your world to pieces You'll turn to us just like you did before Through sands of time we see your world We are those who watch Through space we see your days decay We are those who watch We know that when our help is needed You'll turn to us just like you did before Through sands of time we see your world We are those who watch Through space we see your days decay We are those who watch We watched when Earth was just a wisp of gas We watch it now Seeing slow clouds pass you by We're watching now From maze to maze of clustered life Patterns on the ice We will guide you home Through sands of time we see your world We are those who watch Through space we see your days decay We are those who watch

Fighting Man 04:59
Embracing the dark of night Ignoring the cold Standing out there, on the edge of life Keeping watch over this world In the darkness above the city lights Defending its soul The time has come now to fight for what is right Guarding this land, it's time to take a stand You're a fightting man Make a difference, take a stand 'Cause you're a fighting man Descending to shadowlands Where you stand alone to face your foe Facing up to the fears that you hold Way down deep in your soul They'll never see that this fight sets you free Won't understand what it takes to be a man As you struggle to reconcile just who you are With what you believe, the cause you hold in your hand It's time to take a stand You're a fightting man Make a difference, take a stand 'Cause you're a fighting man You're a fighting man Make that difference, take that stand 'Cause you're a fighting man It's that time of the night You've got to show them you'll stay where you are You've got to take that stand It's time to bring on the fight To stand up for whaat you believe to be true It's time to take that stand

Gypsy King 04:07
Seems like years have passed in the last few days Since the Gypsy Queen chose a man for her strays He stole her heart and she gave him a crown But when he tried to fly she just tied him down He's the man behind the woman, he's the Gypsy King Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring He's the Gypsy King It's high time now for him there's only one way out If he tried to talk about it she'd only scream and shout He's the man behind the woman, he's the Gypsy King Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring If he'd seen the writing on the wall, he's be long gone now Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring He's the gypsy king He's the man behind the woman, he's the Gypsy King Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring If he'd seen the writing on the wall, he's be long gone now Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring It seems like years have passed in the last few days Since the Gypsy Queen chose me to lead her strays I see clearly now as down starts to glow The time has come when I must go

In The End 04:28
I started this fight 'cause it seemed like the right thing to do I just don't know what they expect someone like me to do I struggle against all these demons that I see all day The reason has gone but the fight carries on In the darkest depths of my soul How will I How will I know what to do In the end I'm running blind as I search for the man I can be Blood on my hands and I don't understand why I'm free Look in the mirror, I don't recognise who I am Can I be evil or can there be some kind of secretive master plan How will I How will I know what to do How will I How will I know what to do, in the end I started this fight 'cause it seemed like the right thing to do I just don't know what they expect someone like me to do I struggle against all these demons that I see all day The reason has gone but the fight carries on In the darkest depths of my soul How will I How will I know what to do How will I How will I know what to do, in the end

You watch them crawl You see them all Their time will come At the falling of the sun When darkness falls These Godless souls You won't deny When the mayhem has begun You realise You share those eyes This burning need This deadly greed You fight the urge To start the scourge The feelings swell Unleash hell Take them down, every one Quench your thirst for Adam's son Make that kill, don't think twice It's time to pay the price Quench your thirst The fear sets in as reality bites It's too late now, you own the night They start to run, but none to soon They won't get far beneath this blood red moon Take them down, every one Quench your thirst for Adam's son Make that kill, don't think twice It's time Quench your thirst

about

Let The Sleeper Awake has been a labour of love for us over the recent months, trying to capture something of the band’s live performance into something studio based. The album features some firm favourites from the live show, such as Lord Of The North and Those Who Watch, alongside new tracks like the title track Let The Sleeper Awake and Daylight…
