A Darkness Descends Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Prelude to Darkness (1:01)
Instrumental
2. Dreams of the Dead (4:59)
In my dreams, I dream of the living dead
Walking

From the grave a hand appears
I don’t know if I'm dreaming
Suddenly before my eyes
Demons begin to appear
They want my body they need my soul to keep their own

Dreams of the dead

They’re closing in, I’m losing speed
I fall they come, to devour me
Suddenly I wake and it’s all a dream

Dreams of the dead

The earth begins to obliviate
Far away from here
Leaving behind no trace
Gone into another world
3. Apocalyptic Dawn (6:17)
A shadow falls upon the earth
This is the coming of our nemesis
Slowly we watch as their armies descend
We are prepared for battle
We will fight until the end
Till every soul has passed
We’ll never let them take our lands
We’ll fight them till our deaths

Seek not the coming tranquility in days of darkness that fall
The darkness is spreading fast and its black shroud engulfs us all
And hell descended upon us
Like a raging flame, spreading through the trees
Destroying all life in its path, destruction and devastation I see
Lands of kings and might of men will not reign supreme
In this world that’s tormented by darkness, infested by demons
The future has been sealed

Up in arms we prepare for the final conflict, prepare for the coming storm
They come from the darkness of the nether regions, seeking power and eternal domination
War Cries, the silence dies
Impeding doom, we shall deny
Sentence all your destinies to the after life, in total oblivion
We shall not fall in darkness, we shall stand and fight
Rid the world from the harness of the evil demons
Over lands and souls of ours, we shall deny them life

King of darkness we wage war on you against your vile plague.
We wont fall before you
Succumb to your sword
We'll wage this war
The shadow of darkness has fallen before us
This war is won
Into the future we step forth
With dreams we go
4. Behind the Mask of God (4:37)
In him we believe, we pray, we trust
We believe the lie, we believe his existence
Used for control, a source of power
For all that's evil on this earth

Behind the mask of God
Lie cruel human intentions
Used to exploit
The ignorant human being

For him, we give all that we have
But all is lost into the hands of politics
He was made by men, to hold control
Over the masses, the millions of people

Behind the mask of God
Lie cruel human intentions
Used to exploit
The ignorant human being

How much longer will this go on?
How much time will it take?
For the world to realize there is nothing there?
To open their minds to the truth
To show them the real purpose of GOD!

Behind the mask of God
Lie cruel human intentions
Used to exploit
The ignorant human being
5. Carnival of Depravity (5:41)
Infernal forces loom above you
Your journey to depravity begins now

While you sleep, images forming
The blur begins to shape
See him rise before your eyes
And he beckons

Step inside the circle
Where bodies lie waste
Welcome to my show
Malefic and depraved

Silence... breaks the screams
Unveiling

A forsaken land which lies desolate
Home to terror, hidden in wait
A home to your fears
A wailing wind of the chilling kind
Encompasses the circus you find
Encompassing evil

Step inside the circle
Where bodies lie waste
Welcome to my show
Malefic and depraved

Haunting dreams of torture fill your mind
This is a carnival you can’t leave behind
Relinquish your spirit to forces unknown
Abandon all hope, as you wont go home

The dancing queens of horror
Demented ogres and fiendish gnomes
All part of the show

The blood stains in ring
Tells the stories of bleak times
Of savage beasts and dying screams
Of the victims that had died

The wicked clowns did run around
To do the ringmasters bidding
6. Spirits of the Mystic Mountains (4:57)
VERSE1
Long forgotten broken skies
New life.. denied
Forsaking the journey tried
Passage forth..denied
Left to roam the earth alone
long forgotten forlone.
Trapped between worlds unknown
roaming the mountains in hope

CHORUS
Lost in time searching souls
Lost forever in worlds
Finding the road that leads to home
Finding the path of snow and stones
Searching for the answer hidden
Seacrhing for the reason

VERSE2
Mountains bleeding stand tall
Haunting spirits reborn
Icey peaks breed cold souls
All immortal never grow old
Sweeping shivers across the land
Feeling thier presence at this hand
Slowly decending from worlds unknown
From the old lands disowned

CHORUS
Lost in time searching souls
Lost forever in worlds
Finding the road that leads to home
Finding the path of snow and stones
Searching for the answer hidden
Seacrhing for the reason

MIDDLE
Spirits Of The Mystic Mountains
They lived for ever lived deep inside
Now you uncovered the past you cannot hide
Its to late your dying cries denied.

CHORUS
Lost in time searching souls
Lost forever in worlds
Finding the road that leads to home
Finding the path of snow and stones
Searching for the answer hidden
Seacrhing for the reason
7. Where Shadows Lie (6:44)
This world of pain and death, hate and tyranny
A war that's left a trail of dead
So many years of darkness pending
So many lives lost in the killing

My tears haven’t found their dead
Paint a picture with countless shades of red
This world that lies before us is dead

A shadow covers the sky, and black reigns through day and night
Beware the coming plague upon mankind
But even in time when all hope is lost, we find a ray of hope
The shinning light is a passage to the shadowlands

Guide me master, through the land of darkness
Past the fiends and demonkind
I travel swift among the mist and fog
This journey of mine must be concealed
I will not fail you father
I will not fail you master

The path before unveils past
The darkness leaving me behind
The key to hope is within my grasp

There is hope tonight
Where the shadows lie

I will not fail you now
This task is mine to complete
I shall not fail you brothers
I will come through the dark

Spreading through the world
I can feel the darkness breeding
Time is of the essence and the clock is slowly ticking
The hour of extinction is at hand

Come not without aid by your side
The dark forces have grown stronger from within

Come through the darkness
Bring with you light
There is hope tonight
Where the shadows lie

We shall not bow down before them
Perish we shall, but not enslaved

I will not fail you now
I will come through the dark

There is hope tonight
Where the shadows lie

My tears haven’t found their dead

It is not fate intervening
We have carved our destiny
The path has been made
We built this kingdom alone
8. A Darkness Descends (5:37)
CHORUS
Watch me ride
Into the night
As the darkness descends on me

VERSE1
Into the forest I walk alone
down the winding path thru trees
I feel their eyes fastened upon me
I feel their evil stare....

PRECHORUS
Amongst the shadows I dwell
surrounded by the darkness
Embraced by the emptiness
I feel the curse upon my soul

CHORUS
Watch me ride
Into the night
As the darkness decends on me

VERSE2
Over the forest a darkness decends
Slowly uncovers the creatures of night
At one with the forest I am
At one with the evil forever....

PRECHORUS
Amongst the shadows I dwell
surrounded by the darkness
Embraced by the emptiness
I feel the curse upon my soul

CHORUS
Watch me ride
Into the night
As the darkness decends on me

MIDDLE
Frozen Eyes stare deep inside
deep inside of me
Darkend Shrines breed demon life
demons for the coming

CHORUS
Watch me ride
Into the night
As the darkness decends on me
9. Invoking the Demons (3:58)
Grim cold caverns, standing at the edge of the earth.
Wretched little spawn, sitting at the helm of all he surveys.

Bones of the dead and obscure trivial things,
From the depths of hell, and of magical origin.
Amassed with intent for invoking of the demons.

Advent darkness ascertains commencement
Of pagan rituals, to summon forth
The legions of demons who shall rise from the dead
And come to the bidding of the wretched little one

Thundering skies
Panoptic gray clouds of doom
From which the lightning strikes

The encompassing vile wind
Ravaging the cold barren land
From bloodied heavens, hell descends

A raging fury in the form of pure evil
And blood that falls in form of rain
Marks the coming of invoked demons
10. Frozen Portrait (7:11)
a silent shiver sweeps the land
an eerie feeling of cold
far away in the distance
from beneath the snow
I hear the pounding
of a heart beating slow
ice maiden let your heart go

Lost in time long ago lost forever
Now I go all alone in search of answers
A shadowed land beneath the snow conquered not
Land of ice land of frost forever been lost

her kingdom of cold is mine to find
her heart i'll melt,make forever mine
this is my quest and no one can deny me this

Oh ice maiden on thy throne

I hear you call my name
Calling me again and again
I know there is nothing to fear
but still I fear everything

You found me now and vanquished my throne
my kingdom will be lost and forever gone
11. The Summoning (7:30)
I Summon Thee Forth.

I call upon thee, lord of darkness and terror
Unleash your fury on this mortal race

Oh father, abandon us not in this hour of need
Lead us far from this coming oblivion.

From this life to your demonic soul

With my divine power, fear not this coming darkness
For I shall protect you till this life eludes me

My death shall not be in vain

From flesh to stone
From here you shall not pass
I stand before you now
Destiny will follow through

And this is how I die
In my deepest slumber
Through fields of torment my soul will pass
Let me walk free

Distorted images of life, slowly flashing
The scars of my past never receding
Curse me now into darkness
I will withstand this punishment

The meeting of minds, the erupting of thought
Foresee the darkness that ravages your kind

Believe the evil, succumb to its possession
The power of demons that’s merged in your mind

As the sun seeps through the smoke
And the world looks desolate and drained
While the blood drips from the tip of the sword
There lies the warrior unslain

Dead eyes
Dead eyes that see no future

Through my eyes witness my torment
See the horror that only I've seen

Relive my fears, feel my anguish
My testament will be my legacy
