Immortals Lyrics

Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Hands of Time (4:51)
Rage and fire in me
Turns a boy (in)to a soldier
There’s no wrong or right in the fight
For we do as we are told

Years went by and and I became
A king to lead this land to fame
Deep inside I feel the power
When it’s over, it's over

And the fear inside us
Will never divide us all
For united we'll never fall

CHORUS:
We will never know the future
We will only know the past
For an instant there'll be sorrow in their eyes

There'll be no one to surrender
And our numbers (are) fading fast
Victory will not rewind the hands of time

In the southern sea
Vicious strikes on the water
No bridge left to cross
We'll destroy everything you leave behind

All in my head and out of my mind
I'm keeping the faith with forces allied
If theres a chance I’ll make someone pay the price
But the war’s not over

And the fear inside us
Will never divide us all
For united well never fall

CHORUS:
We will never know the future
We will only know the past
For an instant there'll be sorrow in their eyes

There'll be no one to surrender
And our numbers (are) fading fast
Victory will not rewind the hands of time

solo.

CHORUS:
We will never know the future
We will only know the past
For an instant there'll be sorrow in their eyes

There'll be no one to surrender
And our numbers (are) fading fast
Victory will not rewind the hands of time

Hands of time
Victory
2. We Defy (3:54)
The Reaper's calling for empathy
The Reaper's riding alone
Illusion has not overtaken me
The answer is soon to be known

We defy
This word reforms in silence
We defy
We strive to ignore the violence
We defy
In time we'll defeat any tyrant
We defy
We're only waiting for the "call"

Allegiance was never a part of us
No union - neither friend, nor foe
Destruction will never devour us
United, we're forging home

We defy
This word reforms in silence
We defy
We strive to ignore the violence
We defy
In time we'll defeat any tyrant
We defy
We're only waiting for the "call"
3. Ode to Leonidas (6:01)
„I, Leonidas,
Son of the lion
Keeper of the gates of fire
To all the noble souls of this land
If you spill your blood with me
I shall tend to your wounds
If you thirst from battle
Then I shall give you my cup
If you follow me
I shall lead you to Sparta
Under the stars of the gods themselves
Together we shall rid this world of the Persian beast
And to you, thy enemy of this land
I say: molon labe, molon labe…
Come and take it”

I’ll dominate you, and sacrifice too
My army will destroy your plans
No competition, or indecision
You’re coming to your end –
And my war’s begun

Those mortals can’t defend you
A suicide rendezvous
I’ll have you running like a child – away
It’s not so complicated
300 terminated
No choice to choose, you’re on my own.
Who’s gonna save you?

They know the consequences
Endure the pain
The blood they try to save
Will be only split in vain

No sleep – for Leonidas
Got to rise against Immortals and the
Kingdom of the East
No sleep – for Leonidas
From a deadlock to distraction
Will there be satisfaction when they’re gone?

Under the pass awaits you
Our flanks of pride and virtue
Your missile shadows will not bound this cause
Like us there are no others
A troop of warrior brothers
Even in battle we defend our dead

They know the consequences
Endure the pain
The blood they try to save
Will be only split in vain

No sleep – for Leonidas
Got to rise against Immortals and the
Kingdom of the East
No sleep – for Leonidas
From a deadlock to distraction
Will there be satisfaction when they’re gone?
4. Back on the Throne (4:05)
He has always been defiant
And he's gotta take control
No sympathy or kindness
In his blackened empty soul

His legions set the pace
Marching onward to the west
So he looms behind the silence
Let all his minions do their best

They're shooting straight for the heart
They wanna tear us apart
They're gonna cut to the bone
It's gonna take some time to put you back on the throne

On the throne
Back on the throne
On the throne

Sailing right into destruction
Then defeated by his foe
Gotta find a way to fall back
But there's nowhere left to go

The trumpets sound "retreat"
But it just too late for some
And the man behind the failure
Soon will greet his "kingdom come"

They're shooting straight for the heart
They wanna tear us apart
They're gonna cut to the bone
It's gonna take some time to put you back on the throne

On the throne
On the throne
On the throne

Back on the throne
On the throne

Straight for the heart
They tear us apart
They cut to the bone
It's gonna take some time to put you back on the throne
5. Live and Die by the Sword (6:14)
When your days are shaded and nights have faded
And the still of death fills the air –
Your bade is true and your conscious too,
Why do these thoughts enter your mind?
There’s a warm wind blowing and the fire is glowing
It’s my choice to live and die by the sword

The cowards have all vanished, they retreat in deep despair
For the enemy is more than just a beast inside the lair
They will never find their Savior, so oblivious to their crime
For the paradox of evil leads them through the night
They will rise, in the final hour

We live and die fighting by the sword
To prove that virtue is its own reward
We live and die fighting by the sword
There’s no surrender, the order will be restored

An ambush from the mountains, they attack us from behind
The alliance has been broken, there is no more mastermind
We secure our last position, with our shields and with our swords
Nut our numbers and no match against their mighty hordes,
So they rise, and we seal our fate…

We live and die fighting by the sword
To prove that virtue is its own reward
We live and die fighting by the sword
There’s no surrender, the order will be destroyed!

A genocide, a mortal fate
Release the hounds and feed the hate,
And even in defeat, we will survive – so we

We live and die fighting by the sword
To prove that virtue is its own reward
We live and die fighting by the sword
There’s no surrender, the order will be restored
6. Wars of Ages (4:07)
It’s about that time, gotta stake your claim
And do what you’ve gotta do, get right into their face
But the game is changing, who could ever know
What is going on right now? Where’d the cowards go?

Wars of ages, turn the pages
Run away, admit defeat

The fire and winds won’t bring down Salamis
A thousand ships can’t save you
Your forces rise to bring down Salamis
But no one’s going to hear those feeble cries

Put your best man in, let him show him the way
You can’t stop now, there’s too much at stake
Now the tides are changing, on the dark blue sea
Take your men and regroup now, find your destiny

Wars of ages, turn the pages
Run away, admit defeat

The fire and winds won’t bring down Salamis
A thousand ships can’t save you
Your forces rise to bring down Salamis
But no one’s going to hear those feeble cries
7. Lady of 1000 Sorrows (4:44)
She lives her days just one by one
Decrypting thoughts inside her mind
No right, no wrong, no in-between
She tells all that she knows
So the truth can be exposed

She's a lady of a thousand sorrows
Breaks into trance before my eyes
She's a lady of a thousand sorrows
Tell me how, tell me where, tell me why?
Let me know my fortune

Her word are spoken with a gentle tongue
Declares the doom to unfold
And all t do is to move on
Are you the forgotten son
And are you the chosen one?

She's a lady of a thousand sorrows
Breaks into trance before my eyes
She's a lady of a thousand sorrows
Tell me how, tell me where, tell me why?

...Blackened clouds hanging over me
Should I face the danger to become immortal?
Strapped in iron, roaming endlessly
I will challenge Xerxes and become immortal...
8. Immortals (1:57)
Instrumental
9. Warriors and Saints (4:11)
No agreements, or common grounds
Just fallen empires, with broken crowns
The streets are vacant, no life to be found.
But what's the point to rule, when there's no one left around?

The tyranny of freedom, the choices all at hand
Are left to be decided by the wealthy and the grand
This reign of evil must soon be taken down

Justice soon will be done
All forsaken must believe

Warriors and saints defending honor
Fighting for the equity of man
These warriors I follow with a blind faith
Deep into the trenches of the final battle

Risen from the ashes, a man of mortal soul
Has taken it upon himself to defend the young and old
Their cries for guidance will not be overheard

Warriors and saints defending honor
Fighting for the equity of man
These warriors I follow with a blind faith
Deep into the trenches of the final battle
10. Rise from the Ashes (4:32)
Still waiting, for nothing
Live a lie in total isolation
So jaded, deflated
From living life all alone
Such wasted time

So many questions still
In the minds of all the people
Should our regimes combine
Who’s the master of the throne?

Rise from the ashes, renew the devotion
For the challengers soon will submit to the ocean
Rise from the ashes, stop drowning in sorrow
To be sure that tomorrow will come,
Rise above again!

Can you hear them? So desperate…
So many words spoken, no one’s listening
We want it, and we need it
But all our fear seem to guide us to nowhere

All those twisted minds
That will try to take our freedom
Will then soon run and hide
For it’s time to take control

Rise from the ashes, renew the devotion
For the challengers soon will submit to the ocean
Rise from the ashes, stop drowning in sorrow
To be sure that tomorrow will come,
Rise above!

Rise above again!
Oh oh oh, rise above the ashes
For your freedom, rise above again.
