Crimson King
Show me your banner
Come show me your sign
The Crimson King's eye
Is the mark to reveal you are mine
I am your master
I will make your dreams come true
I'm your messiah
A twisted one as you may know

My right hands, my servants
My soldiers, my tools
Spread out the good news
Find my children and gather them all
We'll take all low men
All the hatred, evil souls
We share one desire
A wicked one as you may know

Touched by the Crimson King
Touched By the Saviour
The tower falls on Judgement Day
Touched By the Crimson King
Touched By the Saviour
Like it's been written many years ago

I am the angel I am madness
I am the word I am the law
I am holding truth release your sadness
I am the key I am the door
Release!
Oh there is
War and evil
Whores and sinners
Take my hand and I show you
Where to go
Call me Flagg
I'm the Good Man
I'm the Dark Man
Take my hand and
I show you where to go
Release!
Come take my hand
To the promised land

Redeemer
Deceiver
The demon
The man in black

The universe is void
Just you and I
Let there be light
The stars will rise
Then fall again
Climbing to the top
An empty room
Is all there is
Oh I fear it is
Prophecies were made of you and I
The vision's strong
But meanwhile keep on falling
Oh what a miracle is life
An even bigger one is size
It's just the way it is
I fear it is
It's just the way it is

Life's a wheel nothing more
It goes round and around and a...
I am the ageless
I am "Legion"
I'm your lord
I will bring terror
I'm a demon in disguise
The thrill of a thousand
Worlds dying at once
But my ultimate goal
Lies beyond the downfall

Touched by the Crimson King
Touched By the Saviour
The tower falls on Judgement Day
Touched By the Crimson King
Touched By the Saviour
Like it's been written many years ago
 
 
Beneath These Waves
The ocean's beauty
No longer moves my heart
It's black and empty
My aim's so for a part
I'm madness maddened
Driven by the waves of hate
It's him or me well
That's in the hands of fate

Somewhere deep within
There is nothing left but trouble
And the longing for the sweetness of revenge
Somewhere deep within
Let revenge be mine

Come all you mast-heads
Come all you harpooners
Sing out for him, well
My order shall be clear
All you mast-headers
You've heard these words before
It's your blood money
This broad bright ounce of gold

Somewhere deep within
I am forever Ahab
And this whole act is immutable decreed
Somewhere deep within
Let revenge be mine

A walk through the shadows
We'll soon cross the line
There is one thing for sure
You'll rise nevermore
A walk through the shadows
We'll soon cross the line
Beneath these waves you'll sleep

Somewhere deep within
There is nothing left but trouble
And the longing for the sweetness of revenge
Somewhere deep within
Vengeance shall be mine

A walk through the shadows
We'll soon cross the line
There is one thing for sure
You'll rise nevermore
A walk through the shadows
We'll soon cross the line
Beneath these waves you'll sleep

Beneath these waves you'll sleep
 
 
Terror Train
I'm awake so
You better feed me now
I won't slow down
Once we have left this town
Rhymes and riddles
I'm still sleepy so
You must hurry
Please take your seats
You'll stay with me
Be with me
I'll be with you
I'll be with you

No one really knows the pain I'm going through
My final ride is almost done
The world has moved on now it's time to go
My final ride is almost done

Come lift my spirit up, I'm Blaine!
Come lift my spirit up, I'm Blaine!

I am nothing
But at train and
I assume that you don't like me
I'm insane but
Not yet crazy
I will never let you go
Enjoy the ride you'll stay with me
Stay with me
I'll stay with you
I'll stay with you

No one really knows the pain I'm going through
My final ride is almost done
The world has moved on now it's time to go
My final ride is almost done

Come lift my spirit up, I'm Blaine!
Come lift my spirit up, I'm Blaine!

I am the one I am the one
The godlike terror train
The superior, artificial brain
Feel free to call me Blaine

I will roll on
Riddle de-dum, I'm best
Try me, try me,
I'll never fail that test
Blue's for girls and
Pink's for me
Cause
I'm the mono
Don't even dare to mess with me

No one really knows the pain I'm going through
My hate will last forevermore
The world has moved on now it's time to go
My hate will last forevermore

Come lift my spirit up, I'm Blaine!
Come lift my spirit up, I'm Blaine!

Beneath the demon moon
 
 
Seize the Day
On and on this is my way
I've made up my mind
But will I find what I search for
Soon I will reach the western shore

Far behind in the distance
Lie the fires of doom
There's a voice deep inside me
"The tower knows who you are"

The road goes on and on
Tomorrow I'll be gone
The road goes on and on
Tomorrow I'll be gone

I hear him say "We seize the day"

Too many roads we've travelled on
We seize the day
Now there's one thing left to lose
We seize the day
Until the end we'll carry on
We seize the day
Now there's one thing left to lose
We seize the day

All along this is my way
I've better move on
Pure in heart and fair-minded
For strength and truth I keep on

Keep the one that is passed on
And leave the others behind
All alone and without me
I hear him say "We seize the day"

So stay with me we'll carry on
See the winding road goes on and on
 
 
The Gunslinger
Songs to sing.

Song of Turtle
And the Cry of the Bear
Awake
I can sense it
Still I'm afraid
Tower Road lies ahead
Commala-come-ka
Ka has come to me
Grey old fellow
If you finally failed the test
What would it mean?
We're getting near
We're getting near
Maid of sorrow
Your time goes by

Fade away
Fade

"Say thank, ya" for the beams are safe my friend
Long days and pleasant nights for you

Save me
The final chord
Don't let it end like this
No, not like this
Tell me
When things were finally getting out of hand
It's out of hand

Entangled, I am captured
You have put a spell on me
The last in line
The Gunslinger's line
The sacrifice of innocence
This work needs to be done
Now blow the horn
Hail to the gun!

Done is done
Yes, there will be no taking back
Every journey must come to an end
All hail to the Gunslinger
Praise to the Dinh and the King
Beyond our reach, out of control

Save me
To touch the rose it will not bring release
No taking back
Come save me
There are other worlds
But surely none like this
The world has changed

Done is done
Yes, there will be no taking back
The word is the law
Law is Ka

The end of the road lies
Straight ahead it lies
I'm feeling pure
The end of the road lies.

The sacrifice of innocence
The hailing of the gun
My way was death and madness
Now let the tower come

Done is done
Yes, there will be no taking back
And every journey must come to an end
All hail to the Gunslinger
Praise to the Dinh and the King
Beyond our reach, out of control.
 
 
Love's Tragedy Asunder
Here in the shadows
There's no wishing well
May the Blessed one forgive me
Like so many times before
There's no saviour at the door
It won't matter anymore

Touch me now while we reach the end,
I wonder where you are right now, right now,
Oh my dear

She still has sunshine in her weary eyes
A bed of roses to testify my love
A promise made, now I will make a try
There is no power in earth to tear us apart

Love's tragedy asunder
Oh, set your spirit free
Love's tragedy asunder
Do I believe

Deep in the shadows there's no release
(I believe) Deep in the shadows you won't find peace
(I believe) We live in a dreamworld, it's over now
I'll take your hand, our time is sure to come

On broken wings I try to fly
I'm sorry I will get it by
All praise and glory,
All praise and glory to love

I've buried sunlight when I shutter eyes
Dead leaves to dust, the seasons bloom
A glimpse of Heaven showed an angel cry
Tenfold the cries of Crack of Doom

Love's tragedy asunder
Wanted peace for me
Love's tragedy asunder
Will I be free

Love's tragedy asunder
Will I be free
Love's tragedy asunder
Falling misery
Love's tragedy asunder
Do I believe
Love's tragedy asunder
Still I believe
 
 
Wicked Witch
There is a demon
An evil mind
Inside us
Oh I know, I know
We all know the rules
When water will be shed
The wicked witch is.

This is the end of all the miracles
Farewell to you yellow brick road

Everything she is asking for
It all belongs to her
Now she's gone into nothingness
There she waits

Still I can hear her singing in the room
In the room I know she's gone
I've thought "She'll never fail,
All magic will be gone
The day she'll melt away"

This is the end of all the miracles
Still I hear her singing in the dark
Truth has changed, her voice it stays the same
Farewell to you yellow brick road
Still I hear her singing in the dark
While time goes on her voice will fade away

"They are all, they're everything, they are mine
Silver shoes you're mine, you are mine,
You are mine"

Hate will live on

This is the end of all the miracles
Farewell to you yellow brick road

The wicked witch is dead.
 
 
Dorian
Amuse me
Sweet son of love
Sweet son of death
Adore me
And keep in every word I've said
Time is a bitter foe
A bitter foe
Until the end
And grace is like you my friend
My handsome one
My handsome one

Dorian
Time is jealous
Time is pain

The gods will give
The gods will take
Youth will wane
As age will gain
We'll turn into ashes
Like ashes will turn into dust
Will turn into dust
Will fade will fade will fade

Dorian
Oh how sad it is
Time is jealous
Time is pain

Oh how cruel
For me to know
Each breath will take beauty away
If I stayed young and the picture turned old
For that I would give everything

When our eyes first met
I should have left the room
I was growing cold and pale
Fatality
The picture's a mirror
But to whom does it belong?

Oh I damn the day
On that beautiful morning
Am I modern sinner
Or an ancient god
Pray I pray
Is there anything as pure as hate
For the prayer of my pride it has been answered
I can't free myself
From the spell of words
The twisted limbs, the gaping mouth, the lifeless eyes
Forever we are gone
You shall stay with me
I wonder if there's heaven
I wonder if there's heaven
There's nothing left of me

Dorian
Oh how horrible
All the damage you have done
Dorian
It's your beauty
Time will take
 
 
Down Where I Am
Isn't it great to see how life begins
Things may change, let the joy begin
Can you hear this new life crying
Breed it out, it will be worth it
Show me your newborn smile

(Please tell me why)
I don't wanna hold you
(Please tell me why)
I don't wanna see you
'Cause even your smile hurts
Oh it hurts like hell

Isn't it good to see how life begins
There's no sin and there's no crime
Down where I am there's no bitter end at all
This bitterness is endless, keeps going on and on

I don't wanna hold you
I don't wanna see you
Even birth can bear disgrace
I don't wanna hold you
I don't wanna see you
Or even the smile upon your face

I fear my heart and fear my soul
And all the things that are unknown
There's a chance things will turn wrong, my friend
Far too fast I'm losing ground
Well, let's face it here and now
You're not welcome you should know

I fear my heart and fear my soul
Life goes on it surely will
Without me it will wither
Will I ever see light again
Will I ever see light again
Oh life goes on

I don't wanna hold you
I don't wanna see you
My tear of joy turned into grief
(I don't wanna stand it anymore)

Down where I am that's where darkness rules
The silence shall be only friend
 
 
Immigrant Song
(by Led Zeppelin.)
Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing
 
 
Lunar Lament
Take a look at me
So cold and all alone
I drift around in circles
And I can't reach the sun

You saints and sinners
Your peace and war
I drift alone in silence
'Cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun

Just open up and see
Forget what you've been told
I'm existing hopelessly
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Darkness covers me
My soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity
'Cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun

Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun
Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Here I am
Still the same
Round and round
Every day
Fighting hard now
I must push on
Feed the challenge
But even if I miss
I'll land among the stars

Take another look
At yourself what do you see?
You drift alone in circles
And you can't reach the sun
And you a prisoner
Of an endless war
Or trapped in sadness
You can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun
It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun

Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun
Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Spatial Architects
Space, their true asylum
The ancient ones they travel on
The architects of our way
In the dark we stay!

The knowledge that you seek is deep inside you
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
That things are not what they may seem

Can't you wake up and see?
For our own good they tried to deceive
You must learn to believe
That mankind's blind and trying to see
The architects have left us many signs
But the answers lie in death

Fate
Predestination
Manifest
Manipulate
The architects of our way
In the dark we stay!
The knowledge that you seek is deep inside you
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
The knowledge that you seek just may reveal
That things are not what they may seem

Can't you wake up and see?
For our own good they tried to deceive
You must learn to believe
That mankind's blind and trying to see
The architects have left us many signs
But the answer lie in death

If you're asking yourself
Who you really are
And you question the force-fed religions of man
And you know
You know it just can't be
You know it just can't be
So cleanse your mind
So cleanse your mind
Fear in God's pillar and
It has made you blind

Can't you wake up and see?
For our own good they tried to deceive
You must learn to believe
That mankind's blind and trying to see
The architects have left us many signs
But the answers lie in death

If you're asking yourself
Who you really are
And you question the force-fed religions of man
And you know
You know it just can't be
You know it just can't be
So cleanse your mind
So cleanse your mind
Someone must hold the key
Someone must hold the key
The ones who sowed the seed
The ones who sowed the seed
Faith is the final key
The final key
What lies beyond the stars
Lies beyond the stars
Can't you wake up and see?
Wake up and see!
Oh you must learn to believe
Our makers, our framers, our fathers, our gods
The architects roam on their quest for a spirit unknown
If you're asking yourself who you really are
And you question the force-fed religions of man
And you know...
Our makers, our framers, our fathers, our gods
The architects roam on their quest for a spirit unknown
