The Unity 01:49
2.
You feel pain It's cutting through your skin And you're falling down into the arms Of insanity and sin You so dreamed to change The world and life around But alone no one one can win a war Now I see you going down Can you hear my voice I give a choice To rise again above the ground And never be the one Who will end his days In deep disgrace Forgotten and alone I'm your chance to take Join the light with me Join the light to see United we are strong enough To never fall again Join the light with me Join the light, you'll see, The world you failed to change before Will never be the same I'm not the one To blame you for mistakes I've been through it all But I've never lost my faith And I know it's hard To start it all anew, Erase the pain you feel And I can help you to
3.
Infrared 04:02
Look into my eyes Look into my face, I made mistakes How can I decide Who will die tomorrow in my place? I'm not a saint Got too many missteps I regret But I'm still the same Still the man you never will forget In infrared illumination They're coming closer, don't you see You have to put your trust in me I believe in you so let it ever be Discard your faulty expectations I ain't gonna ever bend my knee My heart still beats to forever be free They can hunt me down They can try to beat me, I will stand I won't yield my ground Fighting for what matters to the end Oh I'm not a saint Got too many debts I need to pay Yet I'm still the man Still the man who never will betray
4.
Today 05:09
Your sky is dark As if the night has come forever A sudden weight of past mistakes Is getting hard to bear Without a sound, you're looking down The edge of never So tempting to give up and make One step to end it all But every darkness has a light Keep eyes wide open And you will see In every struggle, there's a way No road is ever straight So many things unspoken Don't let it bring you down Keep standing tall today In every darkness there's a light Keep your eyes open And you will see In every struggle, there's a way No road is ever straight So many things unspoken Don't let it bring you down Keep standing tall today A silver lining in the sky Don't ever let it fade away I know you have the strength inside To overcome the dark Don't give it up today We only have one life to live The end, it doesn't mean relief You have to learn how to believe You've got the force inside Got the strength inside
5.
Every day is just another fight That never stops until you burn Right down to ashes deep inside It's the lesson that I had to learn Still all these faceless empty souls Keep trying harder day by day To build themselves a million walls But it will never save them anyway I've found asylum in my mind A perfect place of serenity You'd better leave me confined For eternity Every day is just another step Into a future so unclear Nobody knows what lies ahead It breeds a devastating fear I know this feeling way too well When it gets deeper to the core Brainwashing free will cell by cell But it won't break my balance anymore I've found asylum in my mind A perfect place of serenity You'd better leave me confined For eternity Every day is just the same old song You play a game that no one wins It's hard to tell the right from wrong When nothing's really what it seems The line between the good and bad Is getting thinner day by day Who will survive the final stand? It doesn't matter for me anyway
6.
Tomorrow 04:32
Tomorrow Will come and heal my heart And sorrow Won't ever try to tear my soul apart That promise you gave to me tonight Tomorrow I'll turn to steel and raise it for the fight Please let me save this night I know the way to make things right Now's the time To join our hands To cross the line That separates our longing hearts in two And your eyes I see the truth Let's leave behind The fear the day will never become true Tomorrow will come and bring the light To follow, To walk this way and never step aside That promise You gave to me tonight Please keep it Tomorrow I will need you by my side
7.
Reflection 03:48
You're trying hard to make me Your vision of a better man But that will never happen I better stay the way I am Not afraid To make mistakes Choosing my direction After all It's what it takes To be my own reflection You wanna make me follow Along your each and every step But that will make me hollow I better walk my way instead Not afraid To make mistakes Choosing my direction After all It's what it takes To be my own reflection And I can't say I'm sorry For failing all your masterplans I'm writing my own story And I can take the consequence
8.
Reality 05:03
It seems so hard to break the silence To rise from your knees and voice your mind It's hard to raise a sword against the violence But someone really needs to start the fight Faster than reality We generate your dreams tonight Without fear and vanity The destination is your mind When you wake up, you'll spread your wings To fight this world of dark and ice Convicted by your memories To give your life as sacrifice It feels so wrong to see them being Afraid to stand against the dark No one deserves to live with eyes unseeing So someone really needs to light a spark
9.
Trapped inside a cage so cold Waiting for the sun to rise Time is running out And all I've got Is watching my life Passing before my eyes It doesn't matter what they do To ruin my belief I fight for you, I'll die for you For you, my timeless dream Drifting with my memories Far beyond these concrete walls I would never like To change my life I'm equally proud of My virtues and my faults It doesn't matter what they do To ruin my belief I fight for you, I'll die for you... I know one day It will come true The chains will break For me and you One day I know It will come true The chains will fall For me and you
10.
The sea is rough on the horizon The crashing wave is closing in But we are blind in our denial No sight to see the end is near Our towers holding up the heavens Built on the blood of those who fell We pray to gods and worship devils We've lost our paradise to hell Bring the storm Crashing the illusion Washing everything away Show us where we've gone astray From being human The clouds are gath'ring in the distance Our final sign of what's to come We will forfeit our existence If we don't see it's all so wrong But all we do is keep believing We are the only chosen ones It's gone too far beyond forgiving No chances left, the die's been cast
11.
Awakening 06:37
Eyes open wide but they don't see All the pain and agony Blind to anything around But sweet illusions We're comatose, so deep asleep Hearts once brave no longer beat We are locked and kept away From all confusions How could this happen, tell me why So easily we all surrendered And chose to live a perfect lie With dreams not worth being remembered Eyes open wide but they don't see We have lost reality Captives to our golden cells Deprived of senses We're comatose, we live and die Afraid to wake up and defy We fear to raise our voice and face The consequences But when we all begin to wake Our silent voice will turn to thunder So strong and loud enough to break And rip the lies around asunder To make this world a better place A better place forever after - Wake up Wake up and let the light inside Awaken all the hearts from sleeping You'll see how light and dark collide Awakening a new beginning

Drawing inspiration from synthpop, EBM, futurepop and modern club music, Unity One have managed to create their own vision of danceable euphoric electro music that makes them really stand out in the already crowded dark scene. A combination of ultra melodic synth lines, pulsing electro beats and strong voice with meaningful lyrics presented on this album is sure to win the hearts of fans and fill the floors around the world.
