Prelude for the Oracle
(Instrumental)
 
 
Circle of Time
From the first moment of time
The fabric of life stars to unwind
With every breath
Closer to death
With every passing day
Oceans are made
Starting with single drops of rain coming down
Season change
Rearranging
And every ending becomes the beginning
The world keeps spinning

And the circle keeps on turning evermore
Gone forever each moment pure
But tomorrow, morning sun is gonna shine
There's no stopping the circle of time

Dynasties going to war
Fight to the last to even the score
Win or lose, still they want more
Power and Majesty, tempered with greed
Holding to key the peace that they never see
Season change
Rearranging
And every ending becomes the beginning
The world keeps spinning

And the circle keeps on turning evermore
Gone forever each moment pure
But tomorrow, morning sun is gonna shine
There's no stopping the circle of time
 
 
Shadow in the Dark
First to came to me
Tried a friend to be
Then you started to hate
Full of jealousy
Became my enemy
There was nothing to say
But when the sun rises high there's no place for you
You'll be gone away but you won't even leave a mark
Just remember you are just a shadow of the dark

Someday you will see
What you did to me
How you turned me away
Stole my dignity
Then you laughed at me
Tried to drive me insane
But when the sun rises high there's no place for you
You'll be gone away but you won't even leave a mark
Just remember you are just a shadow of the dark

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From all your lies
Morning has come
You're caught in the light of day
Now you're gonna melt away
 
 
Vengeance for Blood
Another day lonely day
Fading to grey
There's no getting away
So tired of lying away
Feeling my cold heart break
There's nothing more I can take
I know before morning comes
I'll do what has got to be done
I'm gonna make it right tonite
Tonite
I'm riding for vengeance
Vengeance for blood
I'm racing the engines
Vengeance for blood

For everything you have done
Your time has come
Now there's nowhere to run
You have started a war
You escaped death before
But you won't anymore
I know before morning comes
I'll do what has got to be done
I'm gonna make it right tonite
Tonite

I'm riding for vengeance
Vengeance for blood
I'm racing the engines
Vengeance for blood

It's time to make you play
There's nothing you can do
Don't you know I got nothing to lose
I been counting every hour
'Til I see your face
How much longer will I have to wait!
 
 
Samurai
Moon in the eastern sky
The warrior's lullaby
The rising sun
Soon will come
A glorious time to die
Armour, lance and sword
Murder, aim and gore
On and on
Generals fight destiny
Soon they're gone
To the world of dreams

Song of the Samurai
Living and dying for honor and glory
Their whole life forsaking
For all time awaking
Legends forever

On gilded horses ride
As arrows start to fly
And blood will spill
Up until
Everything wrong's made right
Armour, lance and sword
Murder, aim and gore
On and on
Generals fight destiny
Soon they're gone
To the world of dreams
 
 
City of Dead
City of golden design
Buried with unspoken treasure inside
Nobody knows of the danger it hides
Center of power and greed
Deep in the tomb's where they planted the seed
Waiting for victims
Ready to feed

It's the city of the dead
Lonely streets where ancient spirits tread
In the city of the dead
You can hear the voice in your head
In the temple's secret passage
Evil curses said
Heed their warning to stay away
City of the dead

Hundreds of centuries old
Places where legends and stories are told
Unknowing victims come searching for gold

It's the city of the dead
Lonely streets where ancient spirits tread
In the city of the dead
You can hear the voice in your head
In the temple's secret passage
Evil curses said
Heed their warning to stay away
City of the dead
 
 
Dreams of Empire
As the trumpets of Charlemagne sing
Brave knights march
For the great and mighty king
In aces dark
Fight the battles
Of a holy war
For the empire
Kill by the score

No glory no story
Just too young to die
No sign for no time for
One soldiers cry

From the power of Napoleon's crown
Empire reigns
For the conquest of all around
In his name
In the cross-fire
Of a thousand guns
Simple soldier
Nowhere to run

No glory no story
Just too young to die
No sign for no time for
One soldiers cry

It's always the same
So many heroes are dying unamed
Theirs is no flame
 
 
The Oracle
Stars in alignment
Revealing mysterious signs
From desert mountains to pyramids of light
Riddles unfold
The future foretold
Wandering travelers follow the signs

Hearing the Oracle's words
Giving new secrets their birth
Over and over
With wisdom and knowledge
Telling tomorrow's worth
The Oracle

Pilgrims pay homage
Bringing their sacrifice
The Oracle gives enigmatic replies
Facing unknown
In temples of stone
Ancient voices frozen in time

Hearing the Oracle's words
Giving new secrets their birth
Over and over
With wisdom and knowledge
Telling tomorrow's worth
The Oracle

Unspoken words, mystical energy
Ancient voices frozen in time
Ancestral dance, incense and mystery
Wandering travelers follow the signs
 
 
Interlude
(Instrumental)
 
 
Land of Illusion
I see castle walls
Towers standing call
Mountains rising from the sea
I can feel her next to me in the mist
She's so beautiful I can't resist
Can't touch her vanishes
I know it's only a matter of time
I've got to find her and make her mine
But this is only a land of illusion
Filled with confusion

Lake a labyrinth
Now I'm lost within
Nothing is as it appears
Minutes seem like years
Finally, there she stands
Reach our tenderly to touch her hand
Feel her kiss, she vanishes
I know it's only a matter of time
I've got to find her and make her mine
But this is only a matter of time
I've got to find her and make her mine
But this is only a land of illusion
Filled with confusion

Ancient memories
Are clear to me
Deja-vu
Now I know how well to break the spell
She'll be with me forever now
I know it's only a matter of time
I've got to find her and make her mine
But this is only a land of illusion
Filled with confusion
 
 
Take Me Home
I lay down the phone
My heart like a stone
I still hear your voice
But I made my choice
I just walked away
You begged me to stay
With ice in my veins
I told you to let it be, let me be
I just need to be free
I found someone new
A house made for two
But what can I do
I still think of you
I made up my mind
I must have been blind
Guess I'll never find
Another magic dream
Meant to be
Untamed for eternity
Are you still there. Do you still care
I call out to you, begging you please
Take me home
Into your heart, it's where I belong
I begging you please take me home
Into your arms where I can be strong
Been gone far too long
As days pass me by
Still living a lie
I wish I knew why
I can't ever try
I feel so afraid
Wish I had just stayed
But everything changed
Now I'm all alone again
Without a friend
Wishing you were here with me
Are you still there. Do you still care
I'm calling to you
 
 
Face the Fire
Voices in your mind, from another time
Tell you what to say, travel far away
Go wherever they lead you
But still no one believes you
It's all in your hands. You must save your land
Restore everything to the rightful king
But whatever to you
You can't deny what you know in your heart to be true
If the evil queen calls you a liar
Face the fire!

With a sword of light, fight the black knights
Set the people free, fill their destiny
Everyone has invited. To a country united
Then they set a trap. No more turning back
No attempt to flee, from the enemy
Even good friends betray you
But you can deny what you know in your
Heart to be true
When the evil king calls you a liar
Face the fire

In the final tale. Captured, thrown in jail
Charged with sorcery. And indecency
For arousing suspicion. Trial and inquisition
People need to learn. Witches have to burn
It is simple fate. Put them to the stake
Try to break you with torture
But you can deny what you know in your
Heart to be true
When the evil king calls you a liar
Face the fire
