Buried Alive
Dark and dampness lingers
In body and in soul.
Dead wall of stone I cry out
For twenty years alone.
Exanimate a penance
Not fit for man nor beast.
Innocent of mortal sin,
Do hear me out at least.

Man of strong mind and soul
Deserves a second chance.
Just to see a glimpse of light
Would warm my icy hands.

Any kin or family
Just an echo in my mind.
Silence loudens tribulations
That I left behind.
Just then a beam of light projects
From underneath a rock.
Could it be escape I'm free.
I'll dig my fingers raw.

Man of strong mind and soul
Deserves a second chance.
Just to see a glimpse of light
Would warm my icy hands.

Deep in your mind look for the answer,
It'll be there.
Life, strange illusion,
Stay low, it'll take care.
Time is the sentence in which
You must abide.
Make sin your companion,
Then Satan be your bride.

The tunnels deep and twisting
As I press my body through and through
Entrapped in this one way passage,
In light I must pursue and soon.
I grasp the bars at the end of my crawl,
As I gape down to the sea.
The skeleton of a man who tried,
A fool just like me.

Man of strong mind and soul
Deserves a second chance.
Just to see a glimpse of light
Would warm my icy hands.

Deep in your mind look for the answer,
It'll be there.
Life, it's a strange illusion,
Take it slow, it'll take care.
No time is the sentence in which
You must abide.
Make sin your companion,
Then Satan be your bride.
 
 
The Calling
A cry shivers the night, a voice in agony
That shrieks above the trees.
In a land where no one comes
In a land where spirits dwell,
Hear their fatal screams.
The old man clutches his heart
As he looks to the window,
He knows his time has come.
Woman stands in the dark,
Her hair is white with the snow
Nightmares just begun.

Fates Warning is heard,
Run shivers up and down the spine
Of those who believe.
The old and decrepit have seen,
They mourn in the night,
Young and restless can't conceive
Moon looks through the drifting storm,
Thunder cracks the sky,
She screams throughout the night.
The laughing magpie spreads his wings,
And looks you in the eye,
And laughs at you in spite.

Spirits of innocence take me away.
Dancing her pitiful ritual,
She's stalking her prey.
The bard and the banshee
Sound a harmonious wail.
Predestined hour has come.
Let it come.

The old man wakes with the dawn,
Sweat upon his brow, he casts the spell,
Father O'Reilly found in the moors,
The people mourn, hear the church's bell.
Moon looks through the drifting storm,
Thunder cracks the sky, and she screams, YEAH!
The laughing magpie spreads his wings,
And looks you in the eye, and laughs, HA-HA!

The spirits of innocence take me away
Dancing her pitiful ritual,
She's stalking her prey.
She's coming your way
The bard and the banshee
Sound a harmonious wail.
Predestined hour has come.
The Banshee!
 
 
Kiss of Death
High priest, the man you look for
Prays in the garden tonight, tonight.
Conceived by immaculate conception,
King Nazareen creator of light.
Healing cripples,
Gives sight to the blind,
Transforms himself,
He's not of our kind.
I know this begot by a kiss,
He knows not that he's been defied.

Demon lords won't you ride with me,
Mount your horse to Gethsemane.

Judas Iscariot, money man and thief of Judah
Tell me haven't you dined with the man
And preached with him in Galilee.
You deny being one of the twelve,
You wish to trade your king for gold.
Thirty silver pieces be your reward
And may your rotten conscience never grow old.

Demon lords won't you ride with me,
Mount your horse to Gethsemane.

I am in you, you are in I
You have defied me,
I see through your eyes.
Beware the kiss of death.

Pharisees I fall to my knees,
We must nullify the contract we have made.
I have pined, defied innocence blood
And returned the silver pieces that you've paid.
What's this you say, who is he to us,
See to thyself you greedy man.
The place of the skull
Is where lies your king.
We have washed our hands.

I am in you, you are in I
You have defied me,
I see through your eyes.
Beware the kiss of death.
 
 
Night on Brocken
April thirtieth, the souls of the risen
Are leading the way. The first of May.
Black magic night, witches holiday,
Their torches glow.
Eternal evil, it summons
The lords of hell, just once a year,
Compel and beware the spell of the Jackyl.
Can't break the spell,
Won't break the spell,
The spell of the shadowless man.

The witches fornicate, the demons dance,
Blackmass romance.
In hellish praise
Round Brocken they prance,
Their numbers grow.
A harpie chants, fire fountains glow,
Virgin of snow burnt by the torch
Of the one with no shadow.
I saw his face, I've seen him before,
The face of the shadowless man.

As dawn breaks through the trees,
Lonely town falls to their knees,
A solemn belfry begins to toll.
The mass begins sing familiar hymns,
Man in black has his back to the crowd.
Spreads his wings and turns around,
As my heart begins to pound.

Because you, you're the one I
Saw in flight, at Walpurgis Night.
You've betrayed and cursed the light,
At Walpurgis Night.
You're the one I saw in flight,
At Walpurgis Night.
At the setting of the sun.

Because you, you're the one I
Saw in flight, at Walpurgis Night.
You've betrayed and cursed the light,
At Walpurgis Night.
You're the one I saw in flight,
At Walpurgis Night.
At the setting of the sun.
 
 
S.E.K.
(Instrumental)
 
 
Misfit
He was the sun of champion,
A proud Olympian.
Taught his boy all the tricks
He'd ever need to win.
The games were fierce as battle,
Not for ordinary man.
A man born of royal blood
Must live by sword in hand.
This one not so lucky,
As he fell to his knees.
Suddenly inflicted,
Deranged with disease.
His father act with fury,
You must not scorn his name.
Cast him to the forest,
Return never again.

The nights cold and darkened
As the boy turned into man.
Took shelter in the Jackyl's den,
The cave Tartarean.
Confronted by the serpent
Now your soul belongs to me.
For your health and strength,
Sell your soul and you'll go free.
Eager to accept the bribe,
For revenge in his mind.
Dawn reflect from the blade,
The forest left behind.
His strength grew with every stride,
He was healthy as an ox.
No one would stop him.

You live by the sword,
And die by the sword.
Avenge everyone in your way.
Condemning a Misfit
For innocence his sin.
His blade will avenge you someday.
He's a Misfit.
He's a Misfit.

Defeating every wild beast
And swordsman in the ring.
Victor of the main event
Wed daughter of the king.
He glances to the throne
Where sits the royal regime.

The king who cast the misfit died,
His father reigned supreme.
The charge begins, first pass is made
The serpent's face revealed.
Time has come to meet his fate,
The bribe kept concealed.
He casts his blade with vengeance
And pierced his father's soul.
Satan would take him.

You live by the sword,
And die by the sword.
Avenge everyone in your way.
Condemning a Misfit
For innocence his sin.
His blade will avenge you someday, oh no.
He's a Misfit.
Misfit, Misfit, he's a Misfit.
 
 
Shadowfax
(Instrumental)
 
 
Damnation
Thousands of years,
Before the dawn of history. Ancient races tears,
Are flowing like a river to the sea.
Where sacred river ran,
White deer had roamed the land,
Brilliant twilight in our dreams.

Primitive child,
Your unforgotten tribe calls to you.
Descendants we are one,
The tangled maze is broken once again.
A myth without a meaning,
You shade the light from the seed.
The earth and virgin soil watch it bleed.
The earth and virgin soil.

Red, white, black, in city masses,
Corporate buildings spread like rashes,
Stacked upon each other forty high.
Stabbed each other in the back,
You money-hungry maniacs,
Dig up the earth and spit it in your eye.

To intrude this sacred land,
Where the mortals have been banned,
Where your own forefathers lie in rest.
To disturb this mountain side,
Where in battle we did ride,
And our warriors where they lie,
The earth digest.

Hear our cry from down below,
Let our restive spirits go.
You've trapped us in your world of sin,
Let the plague begin, Damnation.
Your cities disappear,
To earth's interior, don't you know
You've got to let your spirits go, let'em go.
You've got to let those spirits go.
Let'em go!
You've got to let your spirit go.
 
 
Soldier Boy
Little soldier, plastic pistol
Aiming for the head.
Now you see me, now you don't.
You missed me, you're dead.
Laughing, hiding in the bushes,
Scatter for your life.
Little soldier tripped and fell,
Get him with your knife.

Electric eye is loaded,
It shows them it's okay to kill.
They eventually will.

Mother calls you in for lunch,
Put the war on hold.
Too rough to play with other kids,
How many times you've been told.
Laugh at pain it's silly.
He'd make the soldiers bleed.
Break the flesh, twist the bone,
Bring them to their knees.

You don't throw stick and stone,
You leave the little girls alone she said, leave them alone.
First sight of blood at ten,
Fell off the swing and cracked his head, it's all red.

A still and quiet conscience,
Regardless of their doom,
The victims play, they're on their way,
Soldier Boy.
No sense they have, of ills to come.
Nor care beyond ills of today,
They've lost their way, Soldier Boy.

Playgrounds into battle fields,
Diapers into greens and stripes,
Mold plastic into steel, the war is real,
The solders fight tonight.
Little solder falls once more,
Sees red glow like the sun.
Mother calls him back to
Arlington, in Washington.

You don't throw stick and stone,
You leave the little girls alone she said, leave them alone.
First sight of blood at ten,
Fell off the swing and cracked his head, it's all red.

A still and quiet conscience,
Regardless of their doom,
The victims play, they're on their way,
Soldier Boy.
No sense they have, of ills to come.
Nor care beyond ills of today,
They've lost their way, Soldier Boy.
 
 
Traveler in Time
Old man time, Wisdom and Rhyme
Seeker of reason, reaper of time
Born to a spell he walks the beaten path
To hell, rusty shackles of time burden his mind
Once on his side time turns to defy.
In a flash of the lightning he's come and gone.
The clock strikes the hours, he climbs to the belfry
As he's done a thousand hours before.

Many dark years, not a vacant hour through
War and fear had the bell been ever strayed,
Hypnotized rhythmic pendulum synchronized
With the beat of the old man's heart.
Man or machine he's living a dream
Forever the clock lives so does he
Faces below fade with seasons of long ago
Forever awake in his brass bed.
Who holds the key.

It's all a matter of time, is there reason
Or Rhyme - is there?
Traveler in time another left
Behind - you are

Tangled in the web of time you've
Swallowed the pill of illusion.
Writings so clear on the wall you
Waste in seclusion
Mirror reflects the mark of the crowfoot
In his eyes now he realize.
Nearing his hour he climbs to the belfry
As he's done a thousand hours before

Moon of blue is in the sky
West wind he whispers why
Sacrifice living for life his perpetual vice

Lonely win blows through his empty soul.
He cries a river of tears on the clock below
Nothings forever and time will tell
His tears rust the clock and he died as well
 
 
Orphan Gypsy
Young warrior to the drunken gallery slave
Running with the wind running wayward knave
I'm a vagabond with a maelstrom mind
My blood has left me behind
So go away leave me alone.
If you look in my eyes you see only stone
I won't let you in I can lock you out,
In your world, your fallacy, I don't want desolate
Isle of debris

Sister Superior, witch is on her winged flight.
Nightmare dream children scream,
Echo Orphanage Hall Tonight
I'm a misconception never had affection
I don't even know my name
Just as well who would know locked in
The closet all day, but I like it here
They leave me alone.
I the sheep, she is the wolf, I must run
Run to the end of the world.

Ophan Gypsy all I'll ever be
Magic for emotion I am free.
Ophan Gypsy all I want to be
Lift your chains from me.

No place to call home, sever my roots from
The earth, eternal exile from day one.
In this lease of life I entered as one
In the end I leave as one.

Not a single word of guile is heard
Come the clouds before the rain.
You've entered my sanctum blasphemed
And caused me pain.
You're a figment of my imagination
I am stone now you know I gave my
Soul to read your mind.
 
 
Without a Trace
What lurks behind the minds of men,
The switch is triggered once again.
A silent rage makes the front page
A work of art so neatly done homicide
Cannot decide was it accident was it suicide

She's just a face without a name never made it home.
They found her car down by
The lake the bottom was raked
The news says it's a classic case, she disappeared
Without a trace
A witness reward but nothing is heard but

Run rabbit run, hawk in sky hides in
The sun
Run for you life he'll take it away
Run run run fast away.
Don't look behind you'll stun if you look in his eyes
Run for your life he'll take it away
Run run run fast away

Defective unit on the street tonight
He hunts the weak and clips it wings
The moon ignites a flaming raging child
An empty soul is running wild.

He's just a name without a face, hides from
The camera in disguise.
His mother stands by wipes the tears from her eyes.
In an island in the sea rots a mind of seventeen.
He dreams of a girl he cast from this world.
 
 
Pirates of the Underground
So you learn real hard, babe in the woods
Fight for your keep cause
Deep in the dark wolves rip at your
Heart as you lie asleep.
Endangered specie of the megahertz
Follow the yellow brick road, your
Asylum awaits you.
Sign on the dotted line.

Pirates of the underground, mutiny is in the air.
You're the wind in the sails mother ship
Drifters at sea remain to be, till
Land which speaks our tongue is found
On our way cut the tongues of dragons breathing fire
Ride the waves through the air down below the mire.

Preacher man spins backward secret messages
What are you looking for? Something your
Subconscience can devise
Such a sin to disappoint your suspicion
Your force is ours there are no hidden lies

Tuned out in neutral vegetation, prime time
Bleeding hearts howl at the moon.
Foul temptress, oh she sings seduction,
As vultures feast forbidden fruit.
Live an abstract life in your hibernation.
A rude awakening for the underdog typhoon,
Set the thames on Fire.
Climb aboard this man of war
She'll take you far away
To a land of fantasy in your imagination.
 
 
The Apparition
When the stars are right and you're alone
Take a journey, lock the world tight
Out of your mind.
The hall beckons your presence, the doors
Open wide you're to decide to turn back.
Deep the bowels of this black abyss.
Compelled I just can't resist it, take me

Take me away take me away
I wanna know what's deep within
Take me away

Drawing near someone passes through me,
A silent entity never looking back I won't dare
Evil eyes staring through he walls of stone
As I feared I travel not alone.
Laughter's echoes with the blatant wind
I have passed the threshold deep within me

A voice of thunder said turn back
Tabernacle is forbidden
No mortal dares to enter here
I want to know

Flame is burning center of a fountain yearning, waters
Spring eternal, spiritual water physical fire
Above center is sky, cold neverness
Just vastness filled with stars upon stars
In the four corners of life are the golden mirrors
Reflecting what you are and what you are to be

In the first is a young boy white dove in
His hand, in the second is a warrior in armor
In the third is the old man gold watch
In his hand fourth and last
No reflection at all
No reflection at all
No reflection at all

Waters rise toward physical fire, voice says
Tabernacle is forbidden never looking back I don't dare
If the water touches the flame
Forever in darkness yes I'll remain.
White dove flies from the young boys hand
Through the mirror of the old man, only way out
 
 
Kyrie Eleison
Never thought my time was coming
Wasn't in my dreams
Twice I visioned I was falling down,
Down to the ground, I screamed out loud,
Woke on a cloud.
Never really a holy man even though
I understand the father son and Holy Ghost
He's the on that scares me most
Ashes to rain you feel no pain.

Hell fire burns my conscience. My mind explodes
Spine is severed, blood runs cold, confess the
Deepest of sin, invision a king
With a white violin.
Crucifix hung above my death bed begins to bleed.
Imagination, lunacy, has he come to hear my plea,
Grant absolution condone my sin.

The lady in black I ask what do you see.
A glimpse in your glass what good
Fortune for me.
The lady in black said your lifeline is damned.
The tarot of death card she held in her hand.

Kyrie Eleison. Christe Eleison
Kyrie Eleison. Christe Eleison

Segments of my life flash through my mind
Things never seen.
It must be fate warning me for now
The walls are closing in. Rosary in Hand,
Lost grain of sand.
Here I go I start to fall again.

Try to scream I'm mute it is the
End of my last fall.
To the land of nevermore
Shatter her glass I woke on the floor
 
 
Epitaph
Isolation freezes my life, coldness grips my heart
Trapped within a world, a world apart.
Desolate am I, a tempest raging silently.
Lost a barren adrift at sea.

Catatonic state, it sharpens life's depressing edge
The clamor draws me closer to the ledge
As I gaze upon this burning world I curse this life.
A life through which I'm hurled

Lies, lies upon this side and that
Truthless violence deception mourned by the wise.
Thousands of voices drowning out his own
In a popular torrent of lies upon lies
Turn to stone.

So intense the pain that has crawled
From the bleeding corpse of pleasure.
That feeds the worm the writhes
Inside my brain.
In the deep of night it stirs again
In the heart of the sleeper,
From the crack of dawn I wake to curse
The rising of the sun.
Every life is built on hope
Now my dreams have surely passed,
Inner voices haunt my numbered days
Darkness calls me with her laughs

Torn between life and death inertia
Fills my soul.
No will to be nor pride to care
Reapers take your toll.

Strangers cast a menacing glance as
Existence I defy.
Shatter their dream like world I'm not
Afraid to die

Omen bird soars the desert land to the castle
Of idolence, there lies the shadow of a man.
See the colored flowers and marble towers
They fade to brown
Like the unknown inscribed in stone
He's abandoned, abandoned flesh and bones
He's lost in silence swallowed in vastness
Drowned in the depths of a meaningless past
