Stora Rövardansen
(Instrumental)
 
 
King
The night is about to fall.
'Never surrender' - I still hear them call.
Images (are) passing by.
I must watch him waving a last goodbye.

It's not that he's gone away.
It's the secure feeling he will not stay.
A wanderer leaving the land
He once had entered to rise again.

Thousands cry
Until the blood runs low
They make the river flow
That he'll sail on.
Are we that alone?

The king is leaving
Off to a land unknown.
And though I'm wondering why,
The king has left
The spirit we now call our own.
He lit up our life!

1000 days passed by,
From the very moment he stepped into our lives.
Words were not his deal.
What he brought to us is the power to feel.

The power to believe.
The power to walk on, the power to see.
To determine wrong from right.
The power to check out the step from dark to light.

Sometimes I'm even more afraid
Of times beyond the gates of now.
Remembering his glory
Pounds my will onto the ground.

Can you hear us cry?
Can you see our kingdom die?
No!

Now for me it's plain to see
That everything I want to be.
Can be done by holding on
In hard and grueling times.

We are rising high.
 
 
The Mission
For years and years we waited
And now the time has come
To leave these barren lands
Towards (new) horizons.

No matter what has happened
And what was said or done.
Words are to be to forgotten.
We will roam on!

We cross the gates of darkness
Into the black of night.
We don't fear anybody:
(We) got the second sight.

We move a little further
Towards the borderline.
Before the dawn of day
Our souls come back to life.
And life comes back again.

The mission's to fight to be free again.
To stand our ground and to be immortal.
This is our mission so here we stand.
We have the right to be ourselves again.
The mission's to fight to be free again.

They held us down for so long
Our backs against the wall
We didn't see a future,
Did not hear the call.

But now that things have changed
Now that our fears are small
We create a vision
(And we) face it - one for all.

We cross the gates of darkness
Into the black of night.
We don't fear anybody:
(We) got the second sight.

We move a little further
Towards the borderline.
Before the dawn of day
Our souls come back to life.
And all I see, in front of me.
Every step I take is bringing me closer to me!

All that we are is everything we've ever been.
And what we'll be is what we are.
 
 
Lifetime
Sonic signs are waiting
For me to show a way
I am anticipating
To be the perfect deputy

But to be honest, I am my father's son
A chosen one

While the world is changing
I try to keep an open mind
Even though it's plain to see
That things remained the same inside
(I remain the same inside)

(From) now 'til the end of a lifetime
Let me be myself
Let me be invincible
In stories I can tell
Until the end of a lifetime
Let me be myself
I define my heaven
Send the doubting ones to hell

Everyone has seen it
 
 
Rain
Thirst is slowly crawling
Through roads of life
Awaiting someone who will hear
A call for resurrection
In heartless times
Waiting for someone who will
Undo the fear

Please surrender my fate
Give me more pleasant days
There is nothing to focus my eyes on until

Rain falls on white scattered grounds
Mirroring the light
Breaking through every cloud
Thirst will vanish
Healing, feeding, breathing life
Rain falls on white scattered grounds
Bring us back to life

Thoughts of water seen
Like distant memories
I don't remember where I'm from
Cannot live in this world
This is what I know
Something inside me is
Pushing me on and on
 
 
She's Alive
I hear a voice from below
Something's wrong and
As soon as these words are
Intruding my mind I do know:
It is her who's betrayed
By her consciousness
Starting to fade

And as if I still had
Needed to know
She's the only one
Fear starts to grow

She's alive
What a wonderful
Creation bringing time
She's alive
And she knows inside
She's alive
What a wonderful
And joyful singing time
She's alive
And I know inside

My life speed starts slowing down
All of my future plans mistrusted
And as I'm standing here
I start to drown
(It's) not up to me anymore
I know I need her more than ever before

She's struggling against hands of darkness reaching out
The more time is fading the less I will doubt
A woman like her is built to return
As she's regaining I cry out for her
 
 
I Stand Alone
As I lay to rest
And my blood's slowing down
I feel the heart fading
And I wipe the sweat from my brows
It's finally done
I made my way home

Struggling for minutes
A million hours or so
I ran seven miles and still
I have thousands to go
Same story again
I stand alone

And for every question
An answer is found
Thousands of voices are
Screaming new questions out loud
But I make a stand
I'm not gonna drown

Here I stand alone
With an innermost freedom
Like rivers coming home
(Here) I stand alone
Finding trust and forgiveness
In someone I know
And this goes to all my friends
I am with you and with me - until the end

For every crossing
Where two roads diverged
I fell one false decision
But still you find me on this earth
No matter how far
I made my way home

Is it you who's diverging?
The very next day
All the roads seem to vanish
You're still here, so I have to stay
Same story again:
You stand alone
 
 
Starlight
I feel a heat inside
The past begun to thaw
My mind describes the picture
That I want to draw

What I have waited for
It seems to be so near
And every step closer
Is damping the fear

All I am lies right in front of me
Where did I go wrong
That it took so many nights to be
Where I belong?

Starlight
Please enlighten me
I feel so immortal
Starlight
Raised to let me
See what was, what is
And what will be

This one goes out to the preachers of the light
That never broke the promise
'You'll get there, if you still care'
This one goes out to the darkness of the night
Planning my Atlantis
I did not drown. No, I got there!

All I am lies right in front of me
Where did I go wrong
That it took so many nights to be
Where I belong?
I am back again

Starlight
Please enlighten me
I feel so immortal
Starlight
Raised to let me
See what was, what is
And what will be

All I am lies right in front of me
I am back where I belong
And the truth it lies beyond
These gates of dawn
 
 
Battery
(by Metallica.)
Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

Smashing through the boundaries
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the Battery
Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the Battery
Cannot kill the family
Battery is found in me
Battery

Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
Never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, Dominating flurry
We create the Battery
