(Music: Hellenbach / Heller)
(Lyrics: Heller)

Cursed To Crawl in servant's song, force fed your beliefs again
March solely alone I won't give in

Fight to reach a promised land, slips right in between my hands
Destroys everything I am, right to get back up and fight to get back up again

Dreams too grand, they are all I have, follow them until the end
I'm left on my own now, I still won't give in

Hourglass counts down again, sense of urgency at hand
Left with only grains of sand, can you grant me one last stand?

Something answers my cries, fortune opens my eyes
To the gates I arrive, your beliefs are a lie

Is this really all there is? Can there be something else?
I fought hard for all my dreams but all my dreams did not mean anything


Promised land, just a promised lie, only hell disguised again
Found it's not the answer, guess I have to give in

Fought in search of promised land, have it here within my hands
Sadly not what I had planned, can't turn back the clock again

Something answered my cries, fortune changed my whole life
To these gates I've arrived

Your beliefs are a lie
Your beliefs, all a lie
Your beliefs are a lie
