Meet Thy Maker Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Meet Thy Maker (4:26)
As life goes on, there's still no answers
To why we all must die
Why put us here then take away our lives?

For when life falls then death will call
And it's time to meet thy maker
As day does end and night begins
It is written on the wall
You can never tell just when
The time will come to meet thy maker
And you'll never be quite prepared
For what's waiting for us all

It's a game you must play
You can't win in the end
And losing brings the death of your life

No way to know just when you'll go
When it's time to meet thy maker
It'll come down fast and come down hard
When the finger points at you
There's just no telling what's in store
When it's time to meet thy maker
And you'll never be quite prepared
For what's waiting for us all

It's a game you must play
You can't win in the end
And losing brings the death of your life
For the reaper dressed in black
Is watching what you do
As the hands of death are
Reaching from the grave

So meet thy maker! The one in black
Meet thy maker! There's no turning back
Meet thy maker! It's your time
Meet thy maker! The end of the line is here

So death has come, you've learned the truth
And finally met your maker
As you stand alone amongst the dead
Remember this old song
Forget the stories that you've heard
I'm the Lord your maker
The king of death that is my name
And I'm with you till the end

Yes, it's me you will find at the end of the line
As I light the fire and feed you to the flames
Meet thy maker!
2. Just an Illusion (4:10)
It stands before me in my mind
For this is what I see
The perfect image of a world
Created just for me
Too great to speak I'm without words
In which I can describe
This part of me that's never free
Forever caught in time

But it's just an illusion
That passes the time away
A strange illusion
That's with me everyday
It's just an illusion
That traps me in my dreams
Just an illusion, a thought, a fantasy

For I've existed in this world
Just waiting for the day
That I'd become the messenger
For all there was to say
And now I've waited for my chance
To re-invent the dream
To re-establish thoughts of hope
With every breath I breathe

Yes, wishful thinking brings me hope
And leaves me to my dreams
For it's my way of letting go
And passing time with ease
But there's no saving what's been lost
To what we call mankind
Yet fantasies are always free
And dreaming is my mind
3. For There Is War! (6:19)
War!
Inside his mind it's '69
Somewhere in Vietnam
Yes, in his head there's millions dead
From guns, grenades, and bombs
For he's the one that feels the thunder
A prisoner of the times
Just trapped alone in a mental shock
And wanting just to die

As evil unfolds before the eyes
The horror of killing another man
One nation under God

For all around him there is pain
So is the wage of sin
The memories on the battlefield
Are buried deep within
For now the future's only past
And broken is this man
Eternally his life was lost
While fighting for his land

As evil unfolds before the eyes
The horror of killing another man
One nation under God

War! Forever there is war! For there is war!
He can thank the USA
For the way he feels today
For there is war! There is war!

I see them all around me
They're all living just to die
Just trying to make their way
And moving on
But nothing stops the torment
Of those days in Vietnam
As the battle in their minds
Is raging on

Shellshocked mindless madmen
For deep inside there is war!

They had the strength of courage
And they had the will to fight
But in the end they learned
Just how to die
And as they live the terror
Of a time so long ago
It's now too late
To save their wasted lives

And so again the music plays
The battle hymn of war
For there is war!
And every night within the dark
Those nightmares comes again
For there is war!

War!

So here's the lesson to be learned
Amongst this grief and pain
And that's in life there's nothing
Worth the hell of war again
So leave the courage to the fire
And vengeance will stay free
And liberty will carry on
For all eternity

As evil unfolds before the eyes
The horror of killing another man
One nation under God

War! Forever there is war! For there is war!
4. Far from Danger Now (6:34)
She lies sleeping in her beauty
All alone and in the night
While the dark it craves
Her pure and blessed blood, yeah!
But with power and the force
There's no fear within her heart
For in trust she feels
Eternal strength inside

For she's the queen of queens
In a blissful serenade
And with all her faith
She's far from danger now

In a sea of dreaming terror
She's a beauty amongst beasts
And within her blood
The scent of heaven flows
For placed within her heart
Is a strength that denies evil
And with every passing day
That evil grows

Believe in thee
You must stand up
And face every sin
For the power that's inside you
Is there for the strong
To survive the night

And with evil always rising
Her faith is on the move
So the wicked has no chance
To steal her soul, yeah!
For with every human force
There's a strong and burning feeling
That gives them strength
To always overcome

For she's the queen of queens
In a blissful serenade
And with all her faith
She's far from danger now

Believe in thee
You must stand up
And face every sin
For the power that's inside you
Is there for the strong to survive
Believe in thee
You must stand up
And fight till the end
For when the terror is rising
You can come forth
You can show them your fight

And she can hear them calling
The creatures of the night
For in her dreams
She hears the screams
Oh listen them cry

So they cry for the dreaming queen
From far atop the mountain
While their evil hymns
Are sung to sadly mourn
With an echo 'cross the land
There's a circle that's been broken
She's held her strength
She's far from danger now...

So far from danger now!

So far, far from danger now,
Far from danger now...
5. Power and the Glory (Saxon cover) (5:47)
Originally performed on "Power And The Glory", 1983

I'm a soldier of fortune,
I'm trained and I'm ready to kill
Put me in battle
I follow the sound of the gun
And give me an order
At many I'll fire at will
I got no emotions
I'm living with thunder and steel

I don't hear no lies
All I hear are your battle cries
I'm a soldier of fortune
I'm trained and I'm ready to die

To the power and the glory
Raise your glasses high
To the power and the glory
Be with me tonight

A cold death awaits me tonight
If I stumble or fall
My friends lay around me
Their bodies all tattered and torn
But mine is not to reason why
Mine is just to do or die

Can you feel the power,
Can you feel the glory?
Can you feel the power,
Can you feel the glory?
Can you feel the power?
Is it with you tonight?

I' fighting for freedom
I'm safe, I've got God on my side
But with what poison rights
Can you justify your battle hymn
The general says we'll win the war
Just sacrifice 10,000 more
6. The Verdict (6:02)
Let me take you to a prison
Where a man is dying behind bars
His death is right before him
But it's not his choice and it's not his fault
They served him wrong and placed him
Here to die upon death row
And there's little now to help this man
For their justice has been done

A jury turned a blinding eye
Now death is all he sees
And now he has no choice at all
But to die in misery

Oh God above why don't you lend a hand?
To this scarred and helpless soul
Of an innocent man
For if you're up there in the sky
Why don't you make it right?
Just turn him loose and end his fight
Turn him loose and make this right

He's reached the final hour
As the minutes have ticked his life away
But mercy hasn't come for him
So he looks for faith
And he starts to pray
As the seconds fall he's taken
To the place he'll die tonight
While the preacher comes to read
To him his final dying rites

As they walk to death
The man is screaming
An innocence from the crime
And the priest believes the words he hears
From the sadness in his eyes

He tells the priest he once believed
In God above and serving thee for life
But God has chosen him to die
To make him pay for another's crime
A lie, it's all just a lie
But faith is dead and now it's time
To end the pain and say goodbye...

As the man died before them
The electric chair was charged to kill
While the priest was staring at the sky
The smell of death just filled the air
Yes, the verdict death was carried out
On the man who did no wrong
The end for him had finally come
And his soul it now was gone

When the call did come after his death
Claiming that the man was free
All were shocked except the priest
Who knew the travesty

Oh God above why did you take this life?
Is he at peace there standing by your side?
Has his non-belief been born again,
For will we ever know?

The many reasons for the way things go
The many reasons for the way things go
Your many reasons for the way things go
Your many reasons for the way things go
7. Behind the Castle Walls (6:48)
The time was known medieval
When kings and queens did rule the land
But there were two with insane minds
And wickedness at hand
For deep within their castle
They sat and laughed while people died
They never cared for anyone
But others of their kind

For life we plead, real blood
We bleed from the pain
Rising up we knew we must
Now stop these evil ones
To break these chains and
Make our claim for revolution

She was the queen of endless love
And deemed the rich and classy whore
She romanced many in her bed
Amidst the sounds of war
The king, the greedy tyrant spent
All of his time watching poor men die
And no one dared get in his way
Or it would mean their lives

It is from our voice that we now demand
Our freedom from your pain
And we will fight and kill to bring justice
Back to our people once again!
There's no longer independence
And without it we have no lives
So together now we will stand
And march and fight until you die

Kill! Let us stand and kill! Kill!
Behind the castle walls

Our pride was in our freedom
Which death would now reward
As a certain magic filled the hearts
Of our storming battle horde
For we felt as if in heaven
As our tattered armor shined
Yes, the poor were rising from their woes
To save our broken lives

Kill! Let us stand and kill! Kill!
Now we will attack!

Yes, the time had come for vengeance
For angered were us slaves
We had longed to storm the castle walls
And finally end their reign, end their reign...

We rode the path unto the bridge
That brought us to the gates
For our quest for peace had now begun
And death would lead the way, lead the way!

To the king and queen we now call
For you and your people all the same
We've suffered here now long enough
It's time to end our pain!

As we slayed the guards in battle
We knew that it was time
For now beyond the castle walls
Sat the king and queen to die
And we brought our swords together
And our pride we did defend
As we beheaded all the wicked ones
Who'd never reign again
Yes, the chains were finally freed
And there for all the town to see
Were the heads of the king and queen
We've found peace
