"Elements" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Elements, wind, fire, water, earth
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy

Pools of sounds fill my mind
A universe of shapes
Kaleidoscope of colors
Star gardens blossom in their solitude
Spiral architecture
Here I'm standing
Here I'm wondering
Curiosity, thirst for knowledge

Eye for an eye and the whole world will be blind
Oceans of madness drowning the hope of mankind
What kind of man kills because of ideology?
What kind of god justifies violence?

I am begging for comprehension
While aggression tears the world apart

Elements, wind, fire, water, earth, elements
(We are star children)
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
(That's what we are made of)
Elements, wind, fire, water, earth, elements
(That's what life's made of)
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
(That's what I'm made of)

Wind, bringer of fright
Fire, protector
Water, cleanse my soul
Earth, be my guide

And in the darkest night
I won't give up the fight
I won't be losing hope
I hold on to what is true

Elements, wind, fire, water, earth, elements
(We are star children)
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
(That's what we are made of)
Elements, wind, fire, water, earth, elements
(That's what life's made of)
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
(That's what I'm made of)

Elements, wind, fire, water, earth, elements
(That's what life's made of)
Elements, wind, fire, water, earth, elements
(That's what life's made of)
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
(That's what I'm made of)
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
(That's what I'm made of)

Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements
Elements, fear, anger, sorrow, joy, elements

    General CommentTolkki starts this song by creating a pleasant scene of what the universe looks like as a whole. Everything is peaceful, and he expresses our curiosity and wonder of the universe. Then he reminds us of how aggression, hate, and ignorance are ruining the world.

    The rest of the song repeats the elements and says that we are, in fact, made of this calm and peaceful cosmos. This poses the irony of how we are composed of such materials (the components of the universe), yet we are so aggressive, rather than calm like the universe is.
