Waiting for the Dawn Lyrics

Submitted by level Harlequin

Instrumental
2. Travel Through Time (3:57)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

Let me take you on this journey
As we go back many years
I will tell you about the things that I've seen
I know it might sound like a dream
I was born into a poor family
Just dirt floor under my feet
Far away from any city
I had to struggle in the burning heat
I learned how to fight and how to cheat

So now we fly
On the wings of my memories
Just hold on tight
And we will travel through time

When I was younger
Hunting on the plain
And the prey went in to the cave
As I followed through the opening
I felt like stepping in to my own grave
The I saw it and I heard the voice
I have a secret for you, it's your choice
Do you want to be born again?
I'll give you something, a mission for you
So come along in to the light

So now we fly
On the wings of my memories
Just hold on tight
And we will travel through time
3. Beginning (3:41)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

A dry void within the universal waters
And a mound soon to arise
A heaven's dome, the earth
On the first day came the first sunrise

The Sun god is in his boat
Travelling through the night
Fighting the evil serpent
He will bring the light

Before creation there was chaos
And then the maker rose from the sea
He created more new deities
And that's how life was set free

The earth and the sky formed the first couple
And the descendants were born
The forces of good and evil appeared
Before the first dawn

The Sun god is in his boat
Travelling through the night
Fighting the evil serpent
He will bring the light

Before creation there was chaos
And then the maker rose from the sea
He created more new deities
And that's how life was set free
4. Lord Of Eternity (4:04)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

Now that your life has come to an end reveal your sins
Anubis will bring the scales of justice
Is your heart as light as the feather of truth, soon
we'll see
An evil heart can't enter heavenly bliss

I am the Lord of Eternity
I will guide your way
I am the Lord of Eternity
You'll meet me on your last day

My brother's betrayal made me enter the afterlife
By dying I became the most powerful one
I'm the king of darkness the souls, just follow me
Duat is waiting for thee

I am the Lord of Eternity
I will guide your way
I am the Lord of Eternity
You'll meet me on your last day

I have the power
I've got your destiny in my hands
I will decide your fate
I'm the ruler of the darker lands

I am the Lord of Eternity
I will guide your way
I am the Lord of Eternity
You'll meet me on your last day
5. Knowledge And Wisdom (3:54)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

For thousands of years he's been guarding alone and
gazing towards the east
Noble and calm through night and day on the sand lies
the beast
Under his paw all the secrets of mankind can be found
A rock-cut temple and a tunnel leading to a lake
underground
There I roam forever

Why don't you listen to what I have to say tonight
I want to tell you about the things I have seen in the
past
The knowledge and wisdom that I have gained in my life
All the secrets I've been keeping can't be learnt so
fast

Some legends claim the existence of a secret corridor
But it's well hidden, nobody can ever find the door
In a secret temple there were ceremonies held every
night
Praying for the god to defeat all evil and bring back
the light
And I roam forever

Why don't you listen to what I have to say tonight
I want to tell you about the things I have seen in the
past
The knowledge and wisdom that I have gained in my life
All the secrets I've been keeping can't be learnt so
fast
6. Battle Of The Gods (5:05)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

He was raised to avenge, to make things right
He could feel the anger running in his veins
In a foreign land he began to understand
He must overthrow his uncle from his reign
Learning how to fight using his might
Getting ready to avenge his father's death
With power in his arms and a will to win
He will fight until the last breath

They have started the great battle of the gods
Who'll be ruler, it goes on for days and nights

When the fight begins Seth seems to win
More powerful than ever before
But Horus has the thumb that Seth once cut off
By swallowing it he wins the war
Now Seth is captured his hands are tied
But he gets some help from inside
Using the surprise Seath plucks out Horus' eyes
And plants them in the ground with pride

They have started the great battle of the gods
Who'll be ruler, it goes on for days and nights

They meet again and the fight begins
The battle rages on until the end
Finally Seth is beaten and Horus wins
But will that turn an enemy into a friend?

They have started the great battle of the gods
Who'll be ruler, it goes on for days and nights
7. Beauty Has Come (4:54)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

Life can't be measured in gold
But in the feelings that you hold
With all your hopes and all your fears there's so much
to share
She always let her beauty shine
It was something so divine
I could lose myself in her eyes and the wind in her
hair

She comes to me in my dream
More beautiful than I've ever seen
And whispers words of love and hope into my ear
I don't want her to go away
She tells me she would like to stay
As I see her wipe away a lonely tear

Time cannot take away her grace
I can still see her face
It's been carved in my heart, buried deep
I just wait until the night
When she and I unite
She will be all mine as long as I'm asleep

She comes to me in my dream
More beautiful than I've ever seen
And whispers words of love and hope into my ear
I don't want her to go away
She tells me she would like to stay
As I see her wipe away a lonely tear
8. Vizier (4:20)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

I'm first to the king, his adviser
Working behind the scenes, making the decisions
The powers given to me I use wisely
Trying to find all the best solutions

Here I walk again, I'm talking to myself
I stay awake all night till dawn
I've been thinking, hoping for some answers
In this game I'm just another pawn

I will fly in a dream
And wake up to my scream

I've been noticing everyone's deceiving
They are trying to avoid my gaze
But I know about the bribes they've been receiving
I see through their lies, I know their evil ways

Here I walk again, I'm talking to myself
I stay awake all night till dawn
I've been thinking, hoping for some answers
In this game I'm just another pawn
9. Chosen By Re (7:16)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

Born to rule as a future pharaoh
He learned how to play the game
Building monuments and temples
They were to spread his name

Ramses the Great inherited the throne
He wanted to restore Egypt's might
As a living god he would to be known
And he was leading his troops in to fight

A warrior whose name rings all around
A pharaoh who rules over the lands
A living god who wears a double crown
He is chosen by Re

When the nation was in jeopardy
As pirates were attacking from the south
He ambushed them, no one broke free
He proved himself to be a leader and he came forth

A warrior whose name rings all around
A pharaoh who rules over the lands
A living god who wears a double crown
He is chosen by Re

He reigned for over 6 decades
And his legend still lives on
We can see pictures on the walls
Hear about the battles he won

These were days of glory never seen before
And his people adored him even more

He made a pact with this enemy
And took a foreign princess as his wife
During his reign the nation grew
And he brought security and happiness into everybody's
life

A warrior whose name rings all around
A pharaoh who rules over the lands
A living god who wears a double crown
He is chosen by Re
10. Waiting For The Dawn (5:20)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

It's been dark and cold for too long
I've been lying here on this stone
Waiting for the time to arrive
For me to reclaim my throne
In the shadows of my tomb
I will rest and I will wait
My departure will come soon
The stars are controlling my faith

Here inside I find my peace
I am safe from light and sound
All my thoughts are mine to keep
Lying here under the ground
Outside the storm is raging on
Like the storm I come and go
I can tell my time will come
When or where I still don't know

I've been waiting
Waiting for the dawn
Meditating, learning more

I've been waiting
Waiting for the dawn
Levitating above the floor
11. Arise (6:20)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

The stars are aligned, the moment has arrived
Holy light radiates
I feel it flowing, my power's returning
And slowly the air vibrates

Far beyond the stars my mind travels on a search for
guidance
To a place where it can grow and be completely free
I can't deny what I've learned
But it takes so much time to understand the things
And to lay them out for the people to see

I've been there before
And each time I've acquired more
Life is a gift, priceless
The pain inside my heart that's tearing me apart
I feel it disappear, I'm fearless

Far beyond the stars my mind travels on a search for
guidance
To a place where it can grow and be completely free
I can't deny what I've learned
But it takes so much time to understand the things
And to lay them out for the people to see

Now my journey is over
And a new life is awaiting
The stars have given me their powers
My spirits are returning
The time has come for me to arise

As I look around there's not much to be found
Only dust everywhere and a torch without the flame
I see my canopy jars opened by the Spirit Ba
Who's been calling out my name

Far beyond the stars my mind travels on a search for
guidance
To a place where it can grow and be completely free

Now my journey is over
And a new life is awaiting
The stars have given me their powers
My spirits are returning
The time has come for me to arise
12. Movement Of The Nile (2:24)
[Music & lyrics: Kotipelto]

I've been drifting around
A new life is like a new day
I'm guided by the stars
My journey is taking me far away

Standing here again, I see the sun rise
Seems like I've been gone for a while
Here I am again and I rest my eyes
On the movement of the Nile
