Mirror Mirror
Far, far beyond the island
We dwelt in shades of twilight
Through dread and weary days
Through grief and endless pain

It lies unknown
The land of mine
A hidden gate
To save us from the shadow fall
The lord of water spoke
In the silence
Words of wisdom
I've seen the end of all
Be aware the storm gets closer

Chorus (1):
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That the winds will change
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That tomorrows bears insanity

Gone's the wisdom
Of a thousand years
A world in fire and chains and fear
Leads me to a place so far
Deep down it lies my secret vision
I better keep it safe

Shall I leave my friends alone
Hidden in my twilight hall
(I) know the world is lost in fire
Sure there is no way to turn it
Back to the old days
Of bliss and cheerful laughter
We're lost in barren lands
Caught in the running flames
Alone
How shall we leave the lost road
Time's getting short so follow me
A leader's task so clearly
To find a path out of the dark

Chorus (2):
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That the winds will change
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That the winds will change

Even though
The storm calmed down
The bitter end
Is just a matter of time

Shall we dare the dragon
Merciless he's poisoning our hearts
Our hearts

How shall we leave the lost road
Time's getting short so follow me
A leader's task so clearly
To find a path out of the dark

Chorus (2)
 
 
And the Story Ends
(live)
And the story ends
Insanity said coldly
Still waiting for the chance
So out of nowhere it will rise
Oh, and another journey starts
By the call of the moon

Was it really me
I saw in the mirror screaming
I swallowed hate and lies
Through a thousand cries
Someone's sucking out my energy

What can I do on this road to nowhere
Heart of dragon lies at the edge of time

And the story ends
Insanity said coldly
Still waiting for the chance
So out of nowhere it will rise
Oh, and another journey starts
Into insanity's claws

Come with me and join me
A new life's waiting for you
Jump through the mirror
Leave fear behind
No matter where I tried
The candle light seemed
Lost forever
Before my vision fades
-Cathedral
-Falling tears

We're not alone
There's someone else, too
From the mirror's other side
Reflecting the cruel part of your soul
It's time for your choice

What can I do on this road to nowhere
Heart of dragon lies at the edge of time

And the story ends
Insanity said coldly
Still waiting for the chance
So out of nowhere it will rise
Oh, and another journey starts
By the call of the moon

Solo

Heart of dragon lies

What can I do on this road to nowhere
Heart of dragon lies at the edge of time

And the story ends
Insanity said coldly
Still waiting for the chance
So out of nowhere it will rise
Oh, and another journey starts
Into insanity's claws

I'm not a king
I'm just a bard
How can I trust
If there's good or bad
The wounds of life
They will remain
At least I found a friend.
 
 
Imaginations from the Other Side
(live)
Where are these silent faces
I took them all
They all went away
Now you're alone
To turn out every light so deep in me
Hold on Too late

Will I ever see them back again
Or did they all die by my hand
Or were they killed by the old evil ghost
Who had taken
The ocean
Of all my dreams
Which were worth to keep
Deep inside my heart
I wish I
Could get them back
From the everflow
Before they'll fade away

Imaginations from the other side
Far out of nowhere it got back to my mind
Imaginations from the other side
Far out of nowhere it got back to my mind
Out of the dark
Back to the light
Then I'll break down
The walls around my heart
Imaginations from the other side

Where's the ocean's daughter
Was Peter Pan in Mordor
Noone's there to keep alive
All these fairy tales
May I return to Oz
Will I meet the "Tin Man"
"Coward Lion" where are you
Without brain the scarecrow's lost
In the middle of the lake
Stranded in the real world
Left in a world
No place for daydreams
Serious life
I fall into
I fall into a dark hole
And I can't come out

Do you know if Merlin did exist
Or Frodo wore the Ring
Did Corum kill the gods
Or where's the Wonderland
Which young Alice had seen
Or was it just a dream
I knew the answers
Now they're lost for me

Chorus

Solo

I hope there is a way back
With my talisman
So I look into myself
To the days when I was just a child
Come follow me to Wonderland
And see the tale that never ends
Don't fear the lion, nor the witch
I can't come back
I'm lost but still I know
There is another world

Chorus
 
 
Beyond the Realms of Death
(by Judas Priest)
He had enough
He couldn't take anymore
He'd found a place
In his mind and slammed the door
No matter how they tried
They couldn't understand
They washed and dressed him
Fed him by hand

I've left the world behind
I am safe here in my mind
I'm free to speak
With my own kind
This is my life
This is my life
I'll decide not you

We tried to sit down
Staring his face
No sign of life
Did flicker on his face
Until one day he smiled
It seemed as though with pride
The wind kissed him
Goodbye... and then he died

I've left the world behind
I am safe here in my mind
I'm free to speak
With my own kind
This is my life
This is my life
I'll decide not you

Keep the world with all it's sin
It's not fit for living in - yeah
I will start again
It can take forever, forever & ever & ever
But I'll still win

How many like him
Are there still
Who to us all
Seem to have lost the will
They lie in thousands
Lank & lost
Is knowledge worth
This bitter cross - yeah

I've left the world behind
I am safe here in my mind
I'm free to speak
With my own kind
This is my life
This is my life
I'll decide not you

Keep the world
With all it's sin
It's not fit for living in

Beyond the realms of death
