Banish from Sanctuary
In deserts I was preaching
The hand of god was with me
Baptised with water and I praised
The one who came behind me
To save us all with the holy ghost
- A prophet of the fools I've been lost

I'm sure you're there wandering around
But do you care for me I'm alone
You talk of love not for me
In my dungeon cold I could think about
All the things you've said
But I can't understand your famous son

Lead: Andre

Left my way of heaven ... (?)

Ref:
No no turning back
I'm banished from sanctuary
The darkness in me is filling me with pain
There's no way to turn back for eternity

In shadows I'm walking and caught in loneliness
Deliverance I wait for but how long?
Are you the one who should come show me the light in you
Or should we wait for someone? Another!

Ref

Solo: Andre

Lead: Marcus / Andre

Your reich should come to this world
Your way smoothed by my blood, friend
My might will decrease but you'll get
High, yes so much higher be careful of the rats, friend
Cause they'll never sleep before they catch you, too

The blind can see the sun, cripples walk alone
The deaf can hear my words they believe just believe
They believe in me. Look! The signs are near
To perform my task to perform my way
To perform the way I walked
The way of the crucifix

Lead: Andre

I hear the hangman coming, I wait for execution

Ref

Hail Tokyo! Well... Very very happy to be here. This is the best trip we're done 'till now. This is unbelievable, your hearts've been so kind and so wonderful to us. We want to thank you for it. Thank you very much!
 
 
Journey Through the Dark
Anyway, we came here last Sunday by plane and we will traveling by the night so it was the journey through the dark. We can say so and that also the name of the next song is Journey Through the Dark...

Many songs I've written
About the things I saw
My inner soul's a wasteland
I can't run away from here
Try to find them
All the lost thoughts in my mind
I woke up on a hill
So many times before
Yesterday seems like a dream no more
Frozen memories laughing
They don't let me find the truth
Am I born to be a king
Or a jester of the fools

You're the mystical old bard
On your journey through the dark
Mystical old bard
Your journey through the dark

I can't remember my name
I never knew how to find my home
I can't remember my name
Come tell me when will it end
I'm the chosen one
To perform all these things
But not for me
In illusions and reality
I'm on my journey through the dark
I'm on my journey through the dark

Mystical old bard
On your journey through the dark
Mystical old bard
Your journey through the dark

Solo: Andre

I can't remember
Will I ever find myself
The distance is growing
My hope has gone away
A flash of light but nothing changes
When will it end
Which part of me remains

Lead: Andre

Soon I'll be back
On my ferryboat of tales
Where oblivion reigns
It will take all of me

Mystical old bard
On your journey through the dark
Mystical old bard
Your journey through the dark
 
 
Traveler in Time
(Andre spoke Japanese)

Wo-ooooo-oo...

Great, great, great, great, great...

So... This will be your last chance. Please do it on and on  and we will
hear Tokyo singing

Wo-ooooo-oo...

lead: Andre

The holy war's
Waiting for
The morning sun (3x)

The morning sun of Dune
There's no tomorrow
The apparation of this land and it's dream
Makes me feel I've seen it before
I can taste there's life
Everywhere you can find
In the desert of my life
I see it again and again

lead: Andre

And again, again, again, again
Dark tales have brought the Dijahd
Like whispering echos in the wind
And I'm a million miles from home

Ref.:
Traveler in Time
Knowing that there's no rhyme
Traveler in Time
Knowing that there's no rhyme

lead: Andre

The morning sun is near
First light of dawn is here
The morning sun is near again
The Fremen sing that
Their kingdom will come
And I'm the leading one
Battlefields on our crusade
Filled with Sardokaurs
Killing machines crying
In raising fear they're hiding
Where do we go now?
So where is the way?
When I'm a million miles from home

Ref.:
Traveler in Time
Knowing that there's no rhyme
Traveler in Time
Knowing that there's no rhyme

solo: Andre

The morning sun I feel
All pain and sorrow
The apparition of my words in these days
Makes me feel I've told them before
All my plans will come true
I'll control destiny
In the desert of my life
I've seen it again and again

lead: Andre

By my dreams I must find the way
To stop the raging war
I've to choose now
I will leave
My body and see
And time will stand still
When I have to leave
My body and find
A way back to the world I love
When I'm a million miles from home

Ref.:
Traveler in Time
Knowing that there's no rhyme
Traveler in Time
Knowing that there's no rhyme
Traveler in Time

lead: Andre

Thank you very much!
 
 
The Quest for Tanelorn
By the ruins he stands
And he's waiting for me
To enter Tanelorn
His paths seem strange
But they're always planned
Seldom he succeeds
About his own fate

Lead: Andre

He tries to conquer it
Again and again
But at last he's almost
A ruined man
Not a king or God
Who's searching for
A place called Tanelorn
Far beyond your dreams

Lead

On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn
He's waiting
He's waiting for me
He's waiting
He's waiting for me

Lead: Andre

Spiritus Sanctus Vita Alterna (x6)

Darkness falling down on me
Darkness - the eternal battle rises

I know the answers
Although they don't exist
I'm just a mortal illusion

On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn

Solo

So I'm his compagnion
Through space and through time
His eternal servant
He's calling me
So I must leave
To another life
To another world
Far beyond your dreams

To know the truth
Just for a while
He's longing for a place
Where he can find himself
Deliverance
It could be everywhere
How can he find
He's waiting for me
And for you
Tanelorn

On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn, Tanelorn
We lose our way, we lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn, Tanelorn
We lose our way, we lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn
And we lose our way
 
 
Goodbye My Friend
Heeey, Heeey, Heeeeeey...
Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic...
Wanna faster song? You wanna faster song?
Alright here we've got it, goodbye... goodbye... goodbye?.. Goodbye My Friend...

Who can tell me who I am
Who I am my friend
I'm an Alien so they say
A risk to everyone
No - Tell me what do they see
No - Tell me what do they feel
No - Tell me what do they fear
No - Tell me what do they see

I'm a dwarf but I know more than you
And I'm a key to a better life
From terror I could escape
But I need your helping hand
So far from home where I'm left alone
Did you hear my crying? No!
Did you hear my crying?

Ref:
Goodbye my friend
I found you at the end
I say Goodbye to all
Goodbye my friend
Thanks for your helping hand
I say Goodbye to all my cries
Just say Goodbye

Lead: Andre

No returning nevermore
No returning nevermore

Lead: Andre

And I'll remember
Communication to you is so strange
You trust to no one no warmths reach your heart
To you I'm the stranger but you're strange to me
You destruct all what is unknown to you
We are together now
And don't you know I'll come back again
I must go now

Ref

Solo: Andre

I will go home now
I will go home now
Much too long I'm forced to stay
In visions I see
So dark and so deep
Mankind will destruct all life
See you again I hope I will
See you again at the end?
My tortured soul can't forget the pain
Now I find my way back
I WILL GO HOME NOW
I WILL GO HOME NOW

Ref

Lead: Andre

Thank you, you're great!

He's right
 
 
Time What Is Time
We will play the opener of our new album... This is time... Really you know about
this is time... Time What Is Time

When the moonchild is crying
And silence has broken
The darkest truth

The things she remembered
Had never been her own
Replicant or human
I know the way to show
What do I see
What will I find
Know the answer inside
It's your last step

Time what is time
I wish I knew how to tell you why
It hurts to know
Aren't we machines
Time what is time
Unlock the door
And see the truth
Then time is time again

Whispering
These dreams were never mine
It's cold inside
It's gone forever
The things he saw
Who can say what's wrong or right
The vision of a free life
His eyes had seen it all
For what
He's asking
The vision, vision, vision
I know it's all a lie
I'll remember the past life
And I'll remember time

Lead: Andre

What did I see
What have I done
God I knew the answers
When he felt so tired

Time what is time
Come lock the door don't let me in
I am the one your destiny
Time what is time
Reality - it hurts me so
When time is time again

Solo: Andre

Look into my eyes
Feel the fear just for a while
I'm a replicant and I love to live
Is it all over now
Only these years
I'll leave but I'm singing

Time what is time
He saw it clearly it's too late
It does not heal but it lets us forget
Time what is time
We'll never know
So don't take care
Then time is time again

Keys solo

This is Ma(?)...
 
 
Majesty
Now the time has come for me to leave this land
Take my charge with pride sacrifice

Running and hiding I'm left for the time
To bring back the order of devine
Hunted by goblins no Gandalf to help
With swords in the night
Oh the last part of the game
Decision of death and life
Blood for Sauron they'll call tonight
The final battle cry

Running and hiding I'm left for the time
To bring back the order of devine
There exist no tales and hobbits are crying for all
Children of death

I have a dream the things you've to hide for
Deliver our kingdom and our reich
Don't fall in panic just give me the thing
That I need or I kill
Don't run away for what have I done

Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And you'll leave us behind
Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And ruins remind of your time
Run, run, run
Now come back

Solo

Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And you'll leave us behind
Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And ruins remind of your time
Now come back

Cries Cries in a dark land
Hear the voice it's cold as ice
Eyes they are watching
They look for me but cannot find

Creature is following no place to escape
My last steps will find the right way
Where's the future the call of the blind
Cause there is none to find
Watch the sky you see no light
My weapons burst with fear
With the howling wolves the nazgul will die
For all children of death

Cries cries in a dark land
Hear the voice it's cold as ice
Eyes they are watching
They look for me but cannot find
Run run for the whole world
It's time you cannot wait
Lost lost in a dark world
You feel the strange but cannot see
Too many battles we carry along from the war
And too many frightens we feel from his law
For so many victories we're praising so strong
For so many blood we've lost

Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And you'll leave us behind
Oh majesty your kingdom is lost
And ruins remind of your time
Now... now... now...
Behind... run, run, run
 
 
Valhalla
A-a-a!!!

High in the sky where eagles fly
Morgray the dark enters the throne

Open wide the gate friend the king has come
Blow the horn and praise the highest lord
Who'll bring the dawn he's a new god in the palace of steel
Persuade the fate of everyone
The chaos can begin let it in

Bridge:
So many centuries, so many gods
We were the prisoners of our own fantasy
But now we are marching against these gods
I'm the wizard, I'll change it all

Ref (3x):
Valhalla - Deliverance
Why've you ever forgotten me

Oh, valhalla...

Solo: Andre

Ref (3x)

Oh, valhalla...

Magic is in me I'm the last magic man
Never found what I was looking for
Now I found it but it's lost
Yes, lost

The fortress burns
Broken my heart
I leave this world
All gods are gone

Bridge:
So many centuries, so many times
We were the prisoners of our own fantasy
But then we had nothing to lead our lives
No no we didn't play with our time

Ref: (3x)

Oh, valhalla...

Solo

Ref: (2x)

Yeah, that's fun to play in Tokyo, great, great, great.
 
 
Welcome to Dying
And for the last song, we've got something special and you would sing again with
us together. This is welcome... welcome... welcome... Welcome to Dying. Bye-bye
Tokyo!

Close to insanity
Beyond the realms I've been
At darkest places
I'm crying
"The dragon flies"

lead: Andre

Something savage
Is yearning for me
I'm waiting afraid for the night
What will be
I've lost myself
A few days ago
It's touching my soul
And a vision of past dreams comes true

Ref:
Welcome to dying
I don't let it out
Welcome to dying
Look to the mirror it shows what I am
Welcome to dying
This town must burn now
Welcome to dying
Can't you see the dragon's seed bears in me
The one who's been before
Many times I terrorized this town
Many times and here I start again
Now I'm stronger and so cold
Cold as ice
Returning is my destiny
Now I feel it's growing up in me
Now I feel it's burning deep in me
I'm not what I was before
Could I stop this dream
I'm a stranger to myself
And I cannot control

Ref:
Welcome to dying
I don't let it out
Welcome to dying
Look to the mirror it shows what I am
Welcome to dying
Can't you see the dragon's seed bears in me
Welcome to dying
The dragon's breath I don't let it out

(solo: Andre)

I'm a savage
It's too late for me
The other side's taking control and I know
There's one way I can walk alone
Or the dragon will fly
And a growing fear's all that I feel

Ref:
Welcome to dying
I don't let it out
Welcome to dying
Look to the mirror it shows what I am
Welcome to dying
Can't you see the dragon's seed bears in me
Welcome to dying
The dragon's breath I don't let it out

lead: Andre

Spread my wings and fly away
I spread my wings and fly away
I spread my wings and fly away
 
 
Lost in the Twilight Hall
...So for the end of the show we've got something special. We should do it together again. This is from the title from the Twilight world album. It's about a Twilight Hall. So this here is a Twilight Hall too... So we are Lost in the Twilight Hall!

Awaiting my last breath
The mirror calls my name
It's showing me the way
Into the dark
The bridge appears
I jump into the dark side
And hear the voice it's cold as ice

...

Lord of the Rings
(Japanese bonus)
 
 
Hallelujah
(by Deep Purple. Japanese bonus)
I am a preacher with a message for my people
Over the world, scratching on the ground
Looking for the peace that nobody has found

I am a spokesman for a better way of living
Love is the word and it can be heard
If you are young the message can be sung

Let me hear you sing, Hallelujah

Oh tell it to the man who's power is the sermon on the wall
Tell it to the man who says you can misjudge them all
Tell it 'till it can be heard above the wailing of the crowd
Tell it on the field of war and hope you'll soon be justified

There is a better way of life and it's not so hard to find
If you live and let the people in your world speak its mind

I am the pupil who sells his life for freedom
All over the world and it can be heard
If you are young the message can be sung

Hallelujah
