Beyond the Black Hole
Melo: Kai

I have come from so far away
From the sunlight of my home
And I have seen it's the only way
Now my sun is dead and gone

I raise my head in silent anger
Seems there is no place for me
The only way out is to go
Where no one's gone before

Fly - Beyond the gates of space and time
Another universe is mine
And I can't wait until tomorrow
Ride - There's a call from deep within
No I won't return again
'Cause I will dive into the black hole

Don't wait for me, 'cause I won't come back
Oh don't wait for me, no I won't come back
Oh don't wait for me, no I won't come back
Oh, oh, oh ...

Thunder and lightning and fire
Are guiding the trip of my life
Insatiable burning desire
As into the unknown I dive

Raise my head in silent anger
Seems there is no place for me
The only way out is to go
Where no one's gone before

Fly - Beyond the gates of space and time
Another universe is mine
And I can't wait until tomorrow
Ride - There is a call from deep within
I know I won't return again
'Cause I will dive into the black hole

Don't wait for me, 'cause I won't come back
Oh don't wait for me, no I won't come back
Oh don't wait for me, no I won't come back
Oh, oh, oh, don't wait

There was a trigger, for my decision
It's right behind my eyes
Into the darkness of my vision
I let my spirit rise

I wanna see the black hole, into the dark
I wanna dive into the black hole, down into the dark

Into the black hole, into the dark
Into the spiral, Into the dark, the dark, the dark

Solo: Kai / Harmony: Henjo / Melo: Kai

If there's a possible chance for something that can be
Called future behind the spiral
The only way to find out, is to leave the final frontier
To eternity and fly

I will fly - Beyond the gates of space and time
I leave the universe behind
And I can't wait until tomorrow

Fly - Beyond the gates of space and time
I know the universe is mine
                  
'Cause I will dive into the black hole
Ride - And there's a call from deep within
I know I won't return again
'Cause I will dive into the black hole

Don't wait for me, 'cause I won't come back
Oh don't wait for me, no I won't come back
Oh don't wait for me, no I won't come back

Oh, oh, oh, don't wait
 
 
Men, Martians And Machines
From out of space we came on to the earth
From far away on solar beams
A dying race to find survival here
For our kind to plant our seeds

Our analysis of the atmosphere
Was good and so we touched the ground
A rising simple structured life form there
Seemed to be perfect what we'd found

We think in anger of our fallin dream
Our home is now a fading light
The cracks appeared and they where pointing at the end
And so we came to save our lives

Men, Martians and Machines

You were to young to understand our plans
To see the things up in the sky
We were the gods and we have tought you well
And so we found eternal life

We gained control upon our destiny
Our ships were flying everywhere
The cracks appeared our plan was bound to fail again
And now the circle's closing in

Men, Martians and Machines

Solos: Both / Kai

We can't control our human sacrifice
Again we fear for our lives
The cracks appeared our brains start to distort again
Now we gonna say goodbye

Men, Martians and Machines
 
 
No Stranger (Another Day in Life)
I see a hole in the sky
But don't ask me why I'm so down and lonely
No one will understand why
There's a voice in my head
And I know it's the only

I see the children play, with fire in their eyes
And when the day begins
... Another day in life

I'm standing tall, 'cause I won't fall
'Cause I'm no stranger to myself
I see horizons in my sky
'Cause I'm no stranger to myself

Days full of joy
Are drivin' down the pain
Into the sun, a mothers son
Is just about to fly

I see the morning come, with fire in my eyes
And when the day begins
... Another day in life

I'm standing tall, 'cause I won't fall
I'm no stranger to myself
I see horizons in my sky
'Cause I'm no stranger to myself

Solos: Kai / Both

I see the morning come, with fire in the sky
And now the day begins
... Another day in life

I'm standing tall, 'cause I won't fall
I'm no stranger to myself
I see horizons in my sky
'Cause I'm no stranger to myself
No, no I'm no stranger to myself
 
 
Somewhere Out in Space
I'm trapped in a castle of illusions out in space, - no more illusions -
Out on a journey, on a mission for the human race
Terrified, I had to realize that I've been talkin' to the gods of fire
I got nowhere to stand, 'cause I'm a running man... to get away

All that I see is the years... somewhere out in space
And it's time for deliverance

Tomorrow, I'll see it, another day's rise ... right before my eyes
Been sinking in sorrow, but now I'm gonna rise
No more reasons why

I'm a watcher in the dark, I'm so cold inside my heart
I'm a temple in the storm, and I'm bound to be reborn

Take me down to the underground, let me see the gods of fire
'Cause I know where they live and I know where they stand,
Another reason there to leave
Take me down, take me down, take me to the underground
I wanna meet the gods of fire
And all of their intention is the center of it all

All that I see is the years ... somewhere out in space
And it's time for deliverance
Now that I know I've got to get away
Time for deliverance now

And as the sun appeared, up in the sky
I saw another day, that's drifting by
I saw my people cry, a million tears
Into eternity they disappeared

Solo: Kai / Both / Both left and right / Kai / Both

Now it's time to say goodbye, or we will sink in sorrow
No, we don't know the reason why, another day, tomorrow

Oh, I thank you for giving me hope
Oh, follow me into a new life

All that I see is the years, all that I see is the tears

All that I see is the years... somewhere out in space
And it's time for deliverance
All that I see is the fear... somewhere out in space
And it's time for deliverance
I wanna know how to get away, I wanna know how to get away
Come set me free, just set me free, just let me go
I wanna get away, get away
Somewhere out in space
 
 
The Guardians of Mankind
For no one to see for no one to hear
They fight for our souls without any fear
When injustice done they open their gates
To maintain balance between good and bad

And as the winds of freedom blow they vanish into haze
The mighty shadow turns away and wisdom conquers hate

The guardians of Mankind
Are losin' their faith
'Cause malice and falseness
Spread over the human race
If guardians of mankind
Won't shelter our souls
The rulers of darkness
Will soon gain control

Don't try to deceive them don't try to play false
'Cause losing their favour will be the end of shelter

And as the winds of freedom blow they vanish into haze
The mighty shadow turns away and wisdom conquers hate

The guardians of Mankind ...

Solo Henjo, Both, Henjo, Both

And as the winds of freedom blow they vanish into haze
The mighty shadow turns away and wisdom conquers hate

The guardians of Mankind
Are losin' their faith
'Cause malice and falseness
Spread over the human race
Guardians of Mankind
Are losin' their faith
'Cause malice and falseness
Spread over the human race
If guardians of mankind
Won't shelter our souls
The rulers of darkness
Will soon gain control
 
 
The Landing
High in the machines
Above the earth
We observe your lifeform
We've come for you

Riding the machines
We'll take your souls
Riding the machines
We've come to rule

About 400 000 years ago
When evolution was still on the make
An extraterrestial race
Appeared in our part of the galaxy
Heading straight to earth

Riding the machines
We'll take your souls
Riding the machines
We've come for you

When they finally landed
They found a planet with perfect survival conditions
A lower lifeform called humans
Considered them as gods
From somewhere out of space
 
 
Valley of the Kings
Father can you hear me, did you talk to mother earth
What did they say, what did they see, now ... is it time for your rebirth?

Open up the silent center of your mind,
I now want to know the future of your kind

In the valley of the kings, when the storm breaks loose again
Then the gods return to fight, for the future of their lives
In the valley of the kings

Oh mother do you hear me, did you talk to father moon
I don't want to leave my brothers in this temple of their doom

Open up the silent center of your mind,
I now want to know the future of your kind

In the valley of the kings, when the storm breaks loose again
Then the gods will spread their wings, in the valley of the kings

Ra vite, deus sanktus, ra vite
Ra vite, revertate, ra vite

Solo: Kai / Both / Kai / Henjo

Oh mother earth do you believe there is a place for us to go
Come set us free again and let us fly away and give us hope

There'll be a time for us to fly to our thrones up in the sky

In the valley of the kings, when the storm breaks loose again
Then the gods will spread their wings, in the valley of the kings
 
 
Pray
So here we stand again
Like dust on mother earth
And we hide our faces in our dreams

Only emptines where angels flew - high on golden wings
And the voice of god has vanished now - lost inside our dreams
But the only way to go is heaven

All we can do is pray
In the darkness we stand with the world in our hands
And we pray
For a better tomorrow
We wait

Far beyond the horizon
There's a sound in the sky
The voice of glory I hear a silent cry
When the heroes of yesterday are gone

All we can do is pray
In the darkness we hide and we wait for the light
And we pray
Oh we pray

Let us pray

Solo: Kai

I've seen the darkside of the moon in my dreams
Now I know it ain't a place to live for us all

All our gods creation is dead an gone
Now we stand like children all alone forever

All we can do is pray
Forever and forever and forever more
For a better tomorrow - we wait

Pray
There's a light in the dark
And it's shining so bright on our way
Still there is hope on our way
And we pray
Oh, pray
 
 
The Winged Horse
In a land, far beyond the sun
Rules the darkness, faceless magician
Black towers which raise into the sky
Castle of tears, shadows passing by

Blood is covering the mighty walls
Of those who lost their skin and bones
No one ever saw the light
Oh, slaves of the night

There's a young man, chained on a stake
Liveless body, he has no strength to break
His shirt is bloody, his head is hanging down
He's meant to die, the ruler took his crown

The wind howles through the emptiness
A different sound as in the past
Screaming echoes in the lanes
Oh, victims of the pain

The clouds passing by, a hole breaks the sky
Light refract the dark and fills the place
White winged horse, such a powerful force
Gallops through the sky to break the chains

The winged horse lands by the one
It snorts and stamps, the escape has just begun
The chains are broken, silence fills the place
He backs the horse with his last ounce of strength

The white horse rears and spreads its wings
To reach the sky and search the kings
The one will lead to win at last
Oh, rulers of the past

The clouds passing by, a hole breaks the sky
Light refract the dark and fills the place
White winged horse, such a powerful force
Gallops through the sky to free the land

The white horse rears and spreads...

Solo: Henjo, Kai, Henjo, Both, Henjo

The kings return, armed with mighty swords
To retake the land and banish evil thoughts
They fight against the shadows,
Captured souls of the dark might
Dethrone the evil ruler to bring sun to the night

The battle takes a heavy toll
But they achieve what they're fighting for
Now the land is free again
Oh, no more blood and pain

The clouds passing by, a hole breaks the sky
Light refract the dark and fills the place
White winged horse, such a powerful force
Gallops through the sky to free the land

But still at night when darkness rules again
Whispering shadows creeping through the lanes
Evil creatures of the expelled magician
Oh, it's a fight you'll never win
 
 
Cosmic Chaos
(Instrumental)
 
 
Lost in the Future
Atomic fallout scans the sky
Another place where people die
And with a massive final punch
We left a world of pain

And now pollutions everywhere
Another death is in the air
A million people left alone
Down in their desperate, blackened homes

Tomorrow there'll be no sun
Hanging high up in the sky
Tomorrow all dead and gone
And I wish that I could fly

We are lost, in the future, we are lost
In a dream we can't control
No way

So tell me now computer god
We plug our lives into machines
And as they're guiding our dreams
We're individually lost
As we are nailed to our cross

Tomorrow there'll be a sun
Hanging high up in the sky
Tomorrow I'm dead and gone
Oh I wish that I could fly

We are lost, in the future, we are lost
It's a nightmare, we are lost
In the future, we are lost
In a dream we'll never see

Solo: Both/Henjo/Kai/Both

Our hearts live forever
In dreams are alive
Forever and ever
We're riding the sky

Solo: Henjo

All hope is lost, but nothing gained
We're crying again
Is this the end?

Lost, in the future, we are lost
It's a nightmare, we are lost
In the future, we are lost
In a dream we can't control

We're lost, so lost
We're lost, so lost
We all are lost!
 
 
Watcher in the Sky
(Iron Savior version)
I'm watching the mountains I'm watching the sea
Observing the creatures I am lost - set me free
Across the heavens I made my way
I've seen empires rise and blown away
I have arrived at my destiny but after all
There's just emptiness in me
Out in the darkness - I am going mad
Where are the others - there's silence in my head

'Cause I'm a watcher in the sky
I've seen universes die
Out in the cold my systems overload
I am lost in time
Watcher in the sky

I'm trapped in this nightmare
Endless tortures and pain, milleniums have gone by
Uhhh, it drives me insane

Who am I now?
I'm not man - I'm not machine
I gave my life away for the Iron Savior dream

'Cause I'm a watcher in the sky...

Solo: Kai

(Piet)
Hooked to the circuits of a lifeless, cold machine
Lost in a world of artificial means
Ripped out of my body
I'll stand the test of time
Am I perpetual? - am I devine?

Solo: Piet / Kai

I'm a watcher in the sky
My soul has drowned in the tears I cannot cry
I'm the watcher the chosen one but I am lost in time
I'm a watcher in the sky I've seen the years go by
I am the chosen one
Out in the cold my systems overload and I am lost in time
Watcher in the sky
Watching the mountains, watching the sea, watching the creatures
You'll never be free
Watcher in the sky
 
 
Rising Star
(Instrumental)
 
 
Shine On
We drive, we drive, we're riding on through the universe
We've come to reach our destination planet earth
We come, we run, you cannot see us, flying in our
Spaceships, shooting 'cross the sky
We explore and we all know what this is about
For us all

So many light years we have travelled far from home
Someday we'll be there I know

Shine on, Rising star
We travelled such a long way
But still you seem so far
Shine on, Rising star
For our belief in unity at heart
Rising Star
Come on and shine

Living was torture and dying release
A declining world, no future, no hope
We were passing the point of no return

So many light years, still we travel on and on
And someday we will call you home

Shine on, Rising Star
Diamond in the distance, still you seem so far
Shine on, Rising Star
Forever light the darkness in our hearts
Rising Star, Rising Star

Salvation, Damnation
We crawl across the sky with pain
Forever we will fly

Out in the darkness
There's a never ending light

Solo: Both

Still we are far away
But we'll be there one day
Someday we will call you home

Shine on, Rising Star
We travelled such a long way
But still you seem so far
Shine on, Rising Star
Forever light the darkness
In our hearts
Rising Star, Rising Star

Shadows in the darkness, so far away from home
Standing all alone, noone there beside me
Shadows all around, so far away from home
I know I'm not alone, it seems we're lost in space and time
Shine on
Shine on now, and warm the tears
We've shed through years
It's our prison, final reason for the freedom
And the glory that we feel
Are you for real?

Shine on, Rising Star
Diamond in the distance
Still you seem so far
Shine on, Rising Star
Forever light the darkness
In our hearts
Rising Star, Rising Star
Shine on, Rising Star
Come on and shine for us
Shine on, Shine forever more
Shine on, Our survival
Rising Star, the last chance for us all
The only hope for future and a home
For us all
For us all
Come on and shine, Rising Star
 
 
Return to Fantasy
(by Uriah Heep)
Searching every day, looking every way
Trying to make a connection, to find a piece of the action
Like the hungry poet, who doesn't know
He is close to perfection, choice is the question

Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side they will see us ride
But if they cared to look, than they would see
It's our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy, fantasy

Can you understand, that in every man
There's a need to unwind, that's never been defined
Somewhere deep within, there's another being
You are somehow abusing, by the person you're using

Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side they will see us ride
But if they cared to look, than they would see
It's our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy, fantasy

Travelling faster than lightning
Closer than ever before
We can go on for you, and take you nearer to
The legend of mystery from the beginning of time
Dreaming... TIME... Dreaming
We can return to the land of the good and the kind
TIME... Dreaming... TIME... Dreaming
Why don't you come to our party and open your minds

In another place, there's a newer face
Like an unfinished painting, your creator is waiting
The brush and pen describe, what it is inside
That will set your mind thinking, while the others are sinking

Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side, they will see us ride
But if they cared to look, than they would see
It's just our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasy, oh yeah
Fantasy, fantasy, fantasy
 
 
Miracle
I was walking through a misty day, the sky was cold and grey
An old man came right up to me and said, "I know your name."
He said he'd like to talk to me only for awhile
I had no plans, so I said OK, and he started with a sigh and said:
"I've seen a million years pass right away.
I've seen the gods of yesterday, they're old and grey.
If you will fail, there's only one more way."

What we need right now, is a miracle on earth
Let our hearts cry out, so our voices can be heard
Let us walk away together, from the never ending rain
'Til the sun will shine for all of us again.

He said all life he'd been searchin' for a way to find the clue
That love will turn the fear to hope, skies of grey to blue.

"Let the miracle come true my friend", this is what he said
"Let's give ourselves a second chance for another lap in the race.
"And then a million stars will shine to light our way.
And all the tearrs from yesterday, ... forever washed away."

What we need right now, is a miracle on earth
Let our hearts cry out, so our voices can be heard
Let us walk away together, from the never ending rain
'Til the sun will shine for all of us again.

Take my hand and you will see the mirror of your destiny
So many came to read the signs, to understand their meaning
Now I see I do not dare, but something's calling me
So many men cannot bread free, the one who will succeed, I wonder if it's me

What we need right now, is a miracle on earth
Let our hearts cry out, so our voices can be heard
Let us walk away together, from the never ending rain
'Til the sun will shine for all of us again.

It's a miracle we need
Let hearts unite, so our voices shake the earth
Let us walk away together from the never ending rain
'Til the sun will shine for all of us again

We need a miracle, a miracle, a miracle on earth
Let our hearts cry out for the miracle
Let the stars shine on
For the miracle, the miracle on earth
Our hearts, our hearts shall unite for the miracle
 
 
Victim of Changes
(by Judas Priest)
Whiskey woman don't you know that you are drivin' me insane
The liquor you give stems your will to live and gets right to my brain
Don't you know you're driving me insane
You're tryin' to find your way through life
You're tryin' to get some new direction
Another woman got her man
She won't find no new connection

Takes another drink or two, things look better when she's through

Takes another look around, you're not goin' anywhere
You've realized you're gettin' old and no one seems to care
You're tryin' to find your way again
You're tryin' to find some new...
Another woman's got her man
But she won't find a new...

Takes another drink or two, things look better when she's through

You 'bin foolin' with some hot guy
I want to know why is it why
Get up get out you know you really blew it
I've had enough, I've had enough, good God pluck me

Once she was wonderful
Once she was fine
Once she was beautiful
Once she was mine... she was mine

Now change has come over her body, she doesn't see me anymore
Now change has come over her body, she doesn't see me anymore

Changes, changes, changes, changes
Victim of changes
