THE DARKNESS CLOSES IN AROUND US

FEEL THE MAGIC

A WEIRD VIOLENT WHOOSHING NOISE

A WILD DREAM COME TRUE

PHANTOM OF THE NIGHT

SHIMMERING MAGICALLY IN THE MORNING SUN

NIGHT SOUNDS

DEADLY DRAMA

AN INVISIBLE THREAT

STAND IN SILENCE

A GHOST FROM THE PAST

HAUNTING TONES DRIFT OVER THE MOUNTAINS

THEY HOLD DARK SECRETS

THE DARKNESS PEIRCED BY STRANGE COLORED LIGHTENING

THE VASTNESS OF NOTHING - TO THE EXTREMITIES OF NOWHERE

MAGICALLY FASCINATING

FAIRY TOWER

HEAVENLY LADDER

A BIT OF THE MOUNTAINS MAGIC

DUSTING OF MAGIC

PASSIONS DWELL IN THE SHADOWS

THE DEAD LIVE FOREVER

THEY WERE REACHING FOR PIE IN THE SKY

LIKE A GHOST FROM A MISTY PAST

LIKE BEING IN A FAIRY TALE EERIE AND STILL AS A GRAVEYARD

SILENT AS SILK

LIKE AN ACT OF MAGIC

CREAK LIKE THE TIMBERS OF A SAILING SHIP

LIKE AN ANCIENT FEAR TURNED TO DIRT AND LEFT TO CRUMBLE

WRITHING LIKE DRAGON TAILS
