Dawn of the 5th Era Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Enter the Asylum (1:32)
Instrumental
2. God Has Fallen (4:27)
God lay dead in the heavens, angels sang the hymn of death
Mighty King had fallen, their wings were dripping, dripping with tears
That fell upon the earth and drowned all men in mournful rain
Looking to the heavens, but god would never rise again

God lay dead in the heavens, angels sang the hymn of war
Marching into battle, their swords were dripping, dripping with blood
That fell upon the earth and drowned all men in fearful rain
Looking to the heavens, but all they see is death and pain

Man's desire has cast the earth to drown in fire
The angels spread their wings with vengeful eyes
Now they're come to burn the lives of every soul
As you repent for the life that you stole

God has fallen and now our time has come
The angels are rising, this war has just begun
God has fallen and now our time has come
The angels are rising, this war has just begun

The skies of heaven burn with anger for their king
We've made our final sin, we can't repay
With fire they torch the earth and turn our lands to ash
No god to save us now, this is the end

[Solo]
3. Leader of the Titans (5:23)
Oh Titan Gods, keepers of the earth
Is this the end? Must the world fall down to chaos
Losing our strength, beneath the beckoning tides
Of godlings vein, unmaking of our children's lives

Unveiling our disastrous trial to tie our will like reins upon the sun
Or stand as statues to the Mighty Heavens? Must we behold with the eyes of hopelessness?

Cronus stood mute, and the Gods answered all to him
With his brother in silence, motionless, they appeared
One by one, enduring of a fallen fane

Their universal warth, almighty as it seems
These our betrayers pledge our doom
Beneath the shards and ruins of the world
Were we not destined to burn?

Drag down the earth, ourselves and these our foes, our surrender to the Gods
Why should we stay and live in tragedy of a wretched power that claims us all?

[Solo]

(Cronus stood mute, and the Gods answered all to him with his brother in silence, motionless, they appeared one by one enduring of a fallen fane.)

Cronus stood mute, and the Gods answered all to him
With his brother in silence, motionless, they appeared
One by one, enduring of a fallen fane
Of a fallen fane
4. We Are the Sleep (5:59)
If wisdom fails me not
Aseer misled by omens
And wanting caution wise
She comes, true prophet with tread

Vengeance with hands that bear
The might of unity
She comes, my child
She comes, she comes too soon

She shall also come for us she comes
The sons of the night, we are, we are
She shall also come for us she comes
The sons of the night, we are

We are the night's desire
We bring the widow's deep
We are the deep desire
We are the sleep

We are the night's desire
We bring the widow's deep
We are the deep desire
We are the sleep

And through my scabs so new
Fearing but not of these dreams
That comes with the red of dawn
Will not forget for still

Wrought out in bronze of old
Which laid him low in death
Unless it gains its goal
This vision, vision of the night

She shall also come for us she comes
The sons of the night, we are, we are
She shall also come for us she comes
The sons of the night, we are

We are the night's desire
We bring the widow's deep
We are the deep desire
We are the sleep

We are the night's desire
We bring the widow's deep
We are the deep desire
We are the sleep

[Solo]

She shall also come for us she comes
The sons of the night, we are, we are
She shall also come for us she comes
The sons of the night, we are

We are the night's desire
We bring the widow's deep
We are the deep desire
We are the sleep

We are the night's desire
We bring the widow's deep
We are the deep desire
We are the sleep
5. Innocence Lost (3:54)
Come forth, my old friend, and set your foot on the land
Have courage, my old friend for there is always hope
Look up into the sky, the sun is shining still so bright
Look out for the night, I will call the darkness to stand by my side

Raise up your banner and gather the faithful
From your great hall, father of the slain
Raise up your banner and gather the faithful
From your great hall, father of the slain

[Solo]

From mother's arms to father's charm
You hold the young sweet child and drown in its smile
The look in her eyes, the poor innocent child
You see the love she had, the love that she once had

[Solo]

Come forth, my old friend, and set your foot on the land
Have courage, my old friend for there is always hope

Raise up your banner and gather the faithful
From your great hall, father of the slain
Raise up your banner and gather the faithful
From your great hall, father of the slain

From mother's arms to father's charm
You hold the young sweet child and drown in its smile
The look in her eyes, the poor innocent child
You see the love she had, the love that she once had
6. I Am War (4:35)
Here I stand on this battlefield of horrors
I smile with ignorance in my eyes
I make you see a brother killing brother
As I raise my hand to salute

I gave them the guns
I set the night on fire
I am the only one
My name is war

I gave them the guns
I set the night on fire
You will know my name
My name is war

Marching blindly, following their leader
Feeling fear but die with a smile
Running, crawling, dying in this mud
No one will survive from this hell

Dead faces staring at me
Hear my laughter, they will bow to me
Remember, remember my name
As you walk through the flames
I am the last thing you will see

I gave them the guns
I set the night on fire
I am the only one
My name is war

I gave them the guns
I set the night on fire
You will know my name
My name is war

[Solo]

I gave them the guns
I set the night on fire
I am the only one
My name is war

I gave them the guns
I set the night on fire
You will know my name
My name is war
7. Monster in Me (4:38)
By the burning of my candle in the night I lie awake
And try to drown my bitter thoughts, as my memories, I forsake
They warp their vines around my neck, my blinded eyes now see
The cold dead eyes of those I've killed staring back, staring back at me

As the ember of my candle fades into the light
My mind awakens in the dark and plagues the morning night
I feel my life forsake me for at my hand they fell
And now they've come to take me, and leave me in this hell
And now they've come to take me, and leave me in this hell

The dead are watching me, I can't forget
The horrors of what I've seen plagued with regret
Their bodies lying in the snow, the memory haunts me
But I can't, can't let them go, can't let them go

I burn in the torment of what I have done
And look at the monster that I have become
Haunted by voices, forever in me
I'm never alone, but never I'm free

I burn in the torment of what I have done
And look at the monster that I have become
Haunted by voices, forever in me
I'm never alone, but never I'm free

[Solo]

The dead are watching me, I can't forget
The horrors of what I've seen plagued with regret
Their bodies lying in the snow, the memory haunts me
But I can't, can't let them go, can't let them go

I burn in the torment of what I have done
And look at the monster that I have become
Haunted by voices, forever in me
I'm never alone, but never I'm free

I burn in the torment of what I have done
And look at the monster that I have become
Haunted by voices, forever in me
I'm never alone, but never I'm free
8. Apricity (2:37)
Instrumental
9. Wrath of Indra (3:59)
Out of frost and fire, there was chaos long ago
Mighty King slew the beast as the norsemen know
From the rushing blood the ocean, hear their thunderous cries
From the toilsome remains Indra, make the underworld rise

Of his hair he shed the forest, of his skull, the blinding skies
Sculpted from his bones tho mountains, beneath them we all lie
Lo, today, upon my window
Indra carves on every pane to admonish my sceptic smile
A new world order again

Out of frost and fire, there was chaos long ago
Mighty King slew the beast as the norsemen know
Who shall say the gods hae left us or that the power is lost?
Flash upon my raptured sight out of fire and frost

Leader of the Gods, lord of the skies
He brings a storm of heaven's wrath to heed our cries
A realm awaits our passing, and as our empire dies
From the blackened soil of earth the underworld shall rise

[Solo]

Leader of the Gods, lord of the skies
He brings a storm of heaven's wrath to heed our cries
A realm awaits our passing, and as our empire dies
From the blackened soil of earth the underworld shall rise
10. The Journey (5:09)
As the story goes, I'm here, stuck in space
And never to see the earth again
I traveled to an atmosphere
With clouds and acid rain

If the storm arises, it will blind the stars
It could easily melt the flesh from bones
I'm so cold, cold and all alone
How could I forget you all

Am I ready to live in a dream
I just close my eyes and fall asleep

Born within the clouds of dust
And scattered throughout the galaxies
Perfect result of balance and force
Shall swallow all the visible light

Forged at the center of a massive storm
The temperature just keeps on rising
Hot core at the heart of the voyager
Will one day shine like a star

I will never forget who I was
I just close my eyes and fall asleep

(Born within the clouds of dust, we will one day shine like a star.)

[Solo]

Am I ready to live in a dream
I just close my eyes and fall asleep
I just close my eyes and fall asleep
11. The Forsaken (6:07)
A thousand scars cover my body
I have felt the chains of the slave
I have seen the anger of man
I have tasted the blade of the dead

A thousand screams haunt my soul
I have carried the burden of guilt
At the mist and darkness of night
We will learn just what to believe

I am the one, the unborn son
I am the one, the second son
You have the one, you call your son
But I'm the one, the other son

A thousand souls buried in the sea
My enemies drowned in vain
I have seen the anger of man
I won't sleep until they all are slain

A thousand scars cover my body
A thousand screams haunt my soul
At the mist and darkness of night
I have tasted the blade of the dead

I am the one, the unborn son
I am the one, the second son
You have the one, you call your son
But I'm the one, the other son

In my dreams, I am able to sleep
In my dreams, I can still be free
In my dreams, I can feel the wind when I fly
In my dreams, I'm still able to cry

[Solo]

In my kingdom (My kingdom), I shall live forever
In my kingdom (My kingdom), I shall feel no pain


(Oh God... Why did you choose this to happen? Am I just another lamb that needs to be sacrificed? I tried to live by your rules and by your laws, and this is, this is how you repay me?) This ain't living, no but this ain't dying, I just wish I could still feel something. I only have my dreams, and even in my dreams, there is darkness, oh, total darkness...)

If there is a way out, out from this torment
I hope you would show me the way
Don't leave me stranded, please don't leave me stranded
But guide me through

In my dreams, I am able to sleep
In my dreams, I can still be free
In my dreams, I can feel the wind when I fly
In my dreams, I'm still able to die

In my dreams...
