Shadowplay Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Wolves of the North (6:22)
There is a howling in the distance
There is a crying in the cold
And in the falling darkness I can hear them call
The wind and the masters of all

The ancient blood will burn forever
We face the terrors of the night
We ride out tonight into shadow and fight
We witness the ravens take flight

And my eyes are clear
And my heart can see
That beyond my fears
Lies a future for you and for me

Howling in the nightfall
We hear the fight call
And for honour and duty ride forth
All for the glory of the Wolves of the North

For king and crown, and for our honour
The wolves are calling us to run
And on through the plains
Where the snow hides the sun
We feel now that winter has come

And my eyes are clear
And my heart can see
That beyond my fears
Lies a future for you and for me

Howling in the nightfall
We hear the fight call
And for honour and duty ride north

Far beyond the Great Wall
Beneath the snowfall
Now in shadow and darkness ride forth
Honour the glory of the Wolves of the North

Now my eyes are closed
But my heart can see
That beyond this wall
My destiny's waiting for me

Howling in the nightfall
We hear the fight call
And for honour and duty ride forth
All for the glory of the Wolves of the North

Far beyond the Great Wall
Beneath the snowfall
Now in shadow and darkness ride forth
Honour the glory of the Wolves of the North
2. Shadowrunners (4:18)
Waiting, 'til the stars have gone black
And the still of the night is unbroken
In the light of the moon and the dark of the sun
When the answers are always just lies

And then on we run, from our Avalon
And the thunders are roaring like lions
In the midnight sun, when the end's begun
We will never surrender 'til this fight is won

In the shadows -
We run down the darkest hour of night
In the twilight -
We answer the calling of the wild
Shadowrunners -
We hide from the truth and from the light
Engines ignite, here they come -
Shadowrunners out of sight
Beware the night!

Running, in the still of the night
Where our secrets remain safe forever
When the hours at last, as the shadows we cast
Are long and sing tales of the end

And then on we run, from our Avalon
And our swordblades are gleaming like fire
When truth lies beyond our broken bond
We will never return 'til the battle is won

In the shadows -
We run down the darkest hour of night
In the twilight -
We answer the calling of the wild
Shadowrunners
We hide from the truth and from the light
Engines ignite, he they come
Shadowrunners out of sight
Beware the night!
3. Kiln of the First Flame (5:32)
Riding to the edge of reason
We are the chosen ones
Wondering at the pillars of heaven
Where are the angels, the battle's begun

When in the abyss lies in wait
The gaping world devourer
And in the night we come
And rise up to the blazing skies
We are the ones who walk
Through fire and the darkest hour
And in the face of death and doom
We look through burning eyes

Rise through the fires
With the souls of the dark
Walk through the ashes
From the embers a spark

Kiln of the First Flame
Ancient tomb of the kings
Linking the fires
A new era begins

Blinding our sights with treason
Vengeance is the cry unheard
So dawns under blood the season
Bleak is the night
As our wrath is incurred

When in the abyss lies in wait
The gaping world devourer
And in the night we come
And rise up to the blazing skies
We are the ones who walk
Through fire and the darkest hour
And in the face of death and doom
We look through burning eyes

Rise through the fires
With the souls of the dark
Walk through the ashes
From the embers a spark

Kiln of the First Flame
Ancient tomb of the kings
Linking the fires
A new era begins

Dreaming in the shadows
Of the night that lies before us
Searing ancient pain and the coming of the storm

Walking in the pyres of a life we left behind us
Rising through the ashes to a future we will form

When in the abyss lies in wait
The gaping world devourer
And in the night we come
And rise up to the blazing skies
We are the ones who walk
Through fire and the darkest hour
And in the face of death and doom
We look through burning eyes

Rise through the fires
With the souls of the dark
Walk through the ashes
From the embers a spark

Kiln of the First Flame
Ancient tomb of the kings
Linking the fires
A new era begins
4. The Maiden's Cliff (2:54)
I met her in a dream
A night, clear as a mountain stream
But our dreams are not our own
On the morning breezes they have flown

So come near
Sit and hear

And then rest by the fire
And come hear my song
The tale of a liar, a maiden's gone
The winter's cold, the night has come
And still the wind blows strong
And still the wind blows on

Glanced at me across the hall
She blushed, and let her eyes fall
And by the morrow she was gone
Left but echoes on the dawn

The night was long
The wind was strong

And we sat by the fire with song and wine
She sang with the choir, then she was mine
The maiden's fair, her smile divine
And still I missed her sigh

And she danced in the fire
By midnight clear
The song of the lyre, the song I fear
The maiden's fair, the cliff so near
And still her voice is here
And still her voice is near
5. Warlock (5:12)
Ex igni nos levamus
In inferno cantas
Incantatis animum
Mage magiorum

Run, from the demons chasing you
When it comes to push and shove
Then your nightmares all come true
I defy the gods above

Hatred burns in fiery eyes
I command your souls to rise
Raining fire from the skies
I am the warlock of demise

Virtue of the fallen
I condemn your soul to see
The warlock that is me

Code of honour, last of the line
As I wander the astral plane
Curse the heavens, weak as you are
As the warlock rises again

I, I am the dark
I am the fire
I am the doom that's crashing down
Unto the liars
Who denied the truth of all my teachings

Come, down with me
Come here and see
The fate that tomorrow comes to be

Virtue of the fallen
I condemn your soul to see
The Warlock lives in me

Code of honour, last of the line
As I wander the astral plane
Curse the heavens, weak as you are
As the warlock rises again

Ex igni nos levamus
In inferno cantas
Incantatis animum
Mage magiorum

Out of the dark I am the keeper
Of the fires of the night
I live for the gods of old
And I come to claim my right

Virtue of the fallen
I condemn your soul to see
The Warlock lives in me

Code of honour, last of the line
As I wander the astral plane
Curse the heavens, weak as you are
As the warlock rises again
6. Babylon (5:26)
We come riding on the storm
And we found that we are one
On the waves of yesterday
We burn with the light of dying suns

We are the ones to change our lives
And we will defy your lies
In the everlasting dawn that now arrives

Hear the world turn to false saviours
And forsake the truth beyond

Babylon, your towers burn
And still you raise them higher
Babylon, you've got to learn
The price you pay for vain desire

Out from dark ages past
You thought your secrets bound to last
Through the turning centuries
And beyond the die that's cast

But we will never fall
We'll be the ones to heed the call
Of a new tomorrow that's written on the wall

Hear the cries of fallen saviours
Ere the light will guide you home

Babylon, your towers burn
And still you raise them higher
Babylon, you've got to learn
The price you pay for vain desire

Burning in the fires of tomorrows never known
Running and so frightened
Of the seeds that we have sown

Hiding in the shadows falling in the dying light
Wishing for, and dreading yet
The oncoming night

Babylon, your towers burn
But still they rise forever

Babylon, your towers burn
And still you raise them higher
Babylon, you've got to learn
The price you pay for vain desire
7. Dr. Agony (4:29)
"Doctor, doctor please"
As I ask with great unease
"I feel a pain inside of me
Can you cure this agony?"

"Oh, oh the doctor sees!"
As he says as to appease
"The medicine you need from me
Might be a song by Dragony!"

Come take my hand, and come in, child
Here in the darkness I know what you need

When the doctor is in
Let the madness begin
With his bone saw and scalpel
He'll rip off your skin

When the doctor is in
It is high time for sin
And the last thing you will ever see
Is the face of Doctor Agony!

"Doctor, doctor please
Find a cure for my disease!"
As I scream in silent misery
"I've sinned so most despicably!"

"Yes, your doctor still agrees"
He utters as smiles freeze
"The nature of your malady
Will be Doctor Agony!"

Come take my hand, and come in, child
Here in the darkness I've got what you need

When the doctor is in
Let the madness begin
With his bone saw and scalpel
He'll rip off your skin

When the doctor is in
It is high time for sin
And the last thing you'll ever see
Is the face of Doctor Doctor Agony!

Come take my hand, and come in, child
Here in the darkness I've got what you need

When the doctor is in
Let the madness begin
With his bone saw and scalpel
He'll rip off your skin

When the doctor is in
It is high time for sin
And the last thing you'll ever see
Is the face of Doctor Doctor Agony!
8. At Daggers Drawn (3:52)
The seeds of mistrust have been sown
A price to pay we should have known
That at the end of days, we all ride alone

Count your blessings, send a prayer to the skies
But after all is said and done, one of us will die

Cry to the angels for a single ray of light
But prayers and good fortune
Won't save you on this night
From the break of day
To the crack of dawn
I'll meet you down below
At Daggers Drawn

We come to deal the final blow
And blessed blades are all we know
And at the end of day, one will have to pay

Count your blessings, send a prayer to the skies
But after all is said and done, one of us will die

Cry to the angels for a single ray of light
But prayers and good fortune
Won't save you on this night
From the break of day
To the crack of dawn
I'll meet you at high noon
At Daggers Drawn

Count your blessings, as your truth becomes a lie
Cause after all is said and done, you will have to die

Cry to the angels for a single ray of light
But prayers and good fortune
Won't save you on this night
From the break of day
To the crack of dawn
I'll meet you down below
At Daggers Drawn
9. Unicorn Union (4:10)
We are the ones who have been true
We are the fire that burns in you
Around the corners to the light of day
And then come what may

In the streets of cobblestone
When you're tired and alone
We will guide you on your way back home
Wherever you may roam

Rising Forces
In the cold remorseless
And in the darkness
Will we ever be free?

Glorious! Victorious!
And the sun is shining on for us
In our darkest hour
We will reach for the stars!

Glorious! Victorious!
And the gods are watching over us!
With our mighty power
The Unicorn Union unites!

Through a night of shooting stars
Beyond Jupiter and Mars
To the edges of the universe
We break every curse

Far beyond the end of time
When the stars will all align
And the burning gates of Babylon
Are now far gone

Rising Forces
Guide our courses
Out of the darkness
When we will be free!

Glorious! Victorious!
And the sun is shining on for us
In our darkest hour
We will reach for the stars!

Glorious! Victorious!
And the gods are watching over us!
With our mighty power
The Unicorn Union unites - tonight!
10. The Silent Sun (10:05)
Come with me now into the depths of hell
Walk with me now to where the angel fell
Cross the rivers death, pain and fear
And abandon all hope, ye who enter here

Down in the dark he awaits
Charon, and he will take us through the gates
Of hell on his boat to the shore
Of the night and the nevermore

Down now
Walk with us now
Dream with us now
And then sleep now
In silence

Dante: I see them wander
They are those without faith
As spiritless hollows, and bodiless wraiths
Here see them hurled, the restless and wild
Those wanton hearts
Whom their lust hath beguiled

Choir: Cerberus!
Virgil: In the shadows lies here
Choir: Watching us!
Virgil: As the gluttonous are writhing in the pits
Here with the dark spawn of the world

Choir: Hunger burn!
Virgil: In the greedy who will
Never learn to be satisfied with what they've earned
Dante: And smolder in the fires
Till the debts are all returned

Dante: Madness arise in the circle of lies
Bow to the fallen, the lord of the flies

In the circles of the nine
Where the sun in silence lies tonight
Where the darkest spirits shine
In eternal ice their lord resides
In the circles of the nine
What was hidden now shall come to light
Where the damned appear divine
And the silent sun will weep for you tonight
It has begun, The Silent Sun

Virgil: Crossing Styx' waters
When at last you shall see
Those drowned in their anger, an infernal decree
Dante: Those who have fallen in dark heresy
Are buried in fire, and they cry out to me

Choir: Minotaur!
Dante: With violence fallen
Choir: Burn them out!
Dante: And turn them into cinders and then raise
Their brazen ashes to the skies

Choir: Let them grow!
Virgil: In the muddy waters
Down below with the price
They must pay for their lies
Dante: As trees that never die
Along the shores of silent cries

Virgil: Madness arise in the circle of lies
Bow to the fallen, the lord of the flies

In the circles of the nine
Where the sun in silence lies tonight
Where the darkest spirits shine
In eternal ice their lord resides
In the circles of the nine
What was hidden now shall come to light
Where the damned appear divine
And the silent sun will weep for you tonight
Here we are one, The Silent Sun

Caina! Antenora!
Caina! And Juddeca!
Caina! Ptolomea!
Drowning in the river

Caina! Antenora!
Caina! And Juddeca!
Caina! Ptolomea!
Drowning here forever

Dante: in the dark heart of hell
In a lake of frozen fire
Virgil: Here resides the one, the lord of hell's desire
Dante: The fallen angel cries, eternal pain incarnate
Virgil: The failure of mankind
With eyes of steel and garnet

Virgil: Here we pay the price
For all our heart's desire
Dante: Hear the lord of lies
His wings are beating higher

Both: The centre of the world
We wander on despairing
On the other side unfurled
Comes the Silent Sun on glaring

In the circles of the nine
Where the sun in silence lies tonight
Where the darkest spirits shine
In eternal ice their lord resides
In the circles of the nine
What was hidden now shall come to light
Where the damned appear divine
And the silent sun
Won't weep for you tonight
It shall be done, The Silent Sun
11. True Survivor (David Hasselhoff cover) (3:47)
Dominos falling
Riot in the streets
Baby this time there's no retreat
There's no surrender

A devil is rising
A shadow from the past
Feeding the flames with fire
On the edge of fury

All the time
Running in and out of time
Hear the ticking on the countdown clocks tonight

Go we need some, go we need some action!
If we're gonna make it like a true survivor
We need some action!
If we wanna take our love away from here

We need a living passion
To believe in
Burning hearts and a brand new feeling
Action!
If we're gonna make it like a true survivor

Wo oh!
Calling from the ashes
The phoenix rise again
Fighting for life
For good for all that we believe in

Go we need some, go we need some action!
If we're gonna make it like a true survivor
We need some action!
If we wanna take our love away from here

We need a living passion
To believe in
Burning hearts and a brand new feeling
Action!
If we're gonna make it like a true survivor

The hero stands alone
When all is said and done
The enemies have fallen one by one

All the time
Running in and out of time
Hear the ticking on the countdown clocks tonight

Go we need some, go we need some action!
Action! (Action!)
Action! (Action!)
If we're gonna make it like a true survivor
We need some action! (Action!)
If we wanna take our love away from here

We need a living passion
To believe in
Burning hearts and a brand new feeling
Action! (Action!)
If we're gonna make it like a true survivor

True survivor, whoa oh
True survivor, oh!
True survivor, true survivor
