Lionheart Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Take Your Fear (3:38)
"A new wave is rising

and from the war within us

The Darkness unfolds..."



[Verse 1:]

Behold the last solution

It's still the one with blood

There is no better option

Just let the river flow



Cause the structure has been broken

And nothing is built to last

I feel it coming closer

The times are changing fast



[Pre-Chorus:]

There's no cure, no resolution

Filled with fear, your spirit suffers

Forget the haven, it's an illusion

This disease is terminal



[Verse 2:]

Down from the demon sky

To crush the last of you,

And the last you have to give

Will start to fade, then perish



Come see it through my eyes

Come see it from my perspective

And one day you'll detect

How it tears to be reflective



[Chorus:]

Do you still believe that I'm perfect?

While waiting, for the great collapse

Through oblivion and back;

I will bring, the end of all



[Pre-Chorus:]

The thoughts you have consumes your soul

And makes you want, to rip your flesh, off

Your spirit suffers, from your mind

This disease is terminal



[Verse 3:]

So praise the new conclusion

In darkness you'll discover

That your mind is getting weaker

And soon this will be over



This is the last solution

This is the one with blood

This is the only option

Now let the river flow



Just let the river flow
2. Down Through the Gardens (4:34)
[Verse 1:]

Now when it is over

The last judgement falls

In the trail of the dead

We follow, their burning trace



Here, in the stench of death

We travel, with blinded eyes

In darkness, forward and towards

Our final, destination



[Chorus:]

Down through the gardens, where the statues are crying

Hollow yet aware, the blood drips from their dead eyes

Forever they will dwell here, forever they will judge

The atrocities of man, the lost miracle of life



[Verse 2:]

Onward on, we hail the night

Eternal torment, endless pain

And you will get what you deserve

Inside the wailing walls of sorrow



Here, At the Gates

of your burning resting place

You will find no peace of mind

Now, reap what you've sown



[Chorus:]

Down through the gardens, where the statues are crying

Hollow yet aware, the blood drips from their dead eyes

Forever they will dwell here, forever they will judge

The atrocities of man, the lost miracle of life



[Solo: A. Jagfeldt]



[Last Chorus:]

All your fears, relinquished

The path becomes so clear

As the melody of death

Will triumph everything
3. The Mirror of Tragedy (4:00)
[Verse 1:]

A silent cry, a whisper in the night

The coming of our tide, soon it all will be washed away!

What have we become? Do we need morality?

I am standing all alone, at the edge of insanity!



[Chorus:]

Take me back, to where it all makes sense!

To the anguish, to the grief

That I somehow now understand!

Who am I? Make me see myself again!

Let me look, one more time

In the mirror of tragedy!



[Verse 2:]

Against these walls, I scream in the dark

I wish you could hear me, cause there’s still so much left to say

Take a look around, where is all the light?

A dead flower is all, that is left!



[Chorus:]

Take me back, to where it all makes sense!

To the anguish, to the grief

That I somehow now understand!

Who am I? Make me see myself again!

Let me look, one more time

In the mirror of tragedy!



Don’t take me back! I don’t care if it all makes sense!

All the anguish and the grief

I don’t want to understand!

Who I am, don’t make me see myself again!

Don’t want to look, don’t want to know

Please break the mirror of tragedy!



[Solo: F. Rasmusson]



[Last Chorus:]



Don’t take me back! I don’t care if it all makes sense!

All the anguish and the grief

I don’t want to understand!

Who I am, don’t make me see myself again!

Don’t want to look, don’t want to know

Please break this mirror of tragedy!
4. Truth Unfolds (3:29)
[Verse 1:]

I have come to terms, I have realized

I know what I am, I am what you made me!

You won't get away, you will get what you deserve

You brought this on yourself, see the destroyer rise!



[Chorus:]

Behold the end, no place to run

All hope is gone, there is nothing left

Behold the end, no place to hide

The world explodes, right in your hands



[Verse 2:]

I've opened up my eyes; see the world for what it is!

And there’s nothing worth to save, all you love shall burn!

I have never claimed, to be all that you want

And I can never be; all that you wish for!



[Chorus x2:]

Behold the end, no place to run

All hope is gone, there is nothing left

Behold the end, no place to hide

The world explodes, right in your hands



[Break:] x2

TO HELL - with all you say

TO HELL - with all your lies

TO HELL - with you as well

TO HELL - with the whole world



[Verse3:]

Now the truth unfolds, and all is coming over me

What you once provoked, will rise to tear apart your world

Now the truth unfolds, I have come to set you free

The beast that you awoke, destroyer of all things you love!



[Chorus:]

Behold the end, no place to run

All hope is gone, there is nothing left

Behold the end, no place to hide

The world explodes, right in your hands



[Last Chorus x2:]

All is gone!

Nothing's left!

The world explodes!

Right in your hands!
5. Lionheart (3:50)
[Verse 1:]
Here he comes to claim the throne, the rightful heir, the old King’s son
See the Warrior arise, victory over demise

[Chorus:]
The Lion’s blood that runs in me, it’s time for you to see
The one who stands the storm alone
The rightful heir to the throne
Hammer high, towards the sky
The world shall hear the battle cry

The time is now, by strength defined, descend the Lion's bloodline
It's in my blood, my destiny
No defeat, no retreat
The Lionheart shall lead the way
Our new king will arise today

[Verse 2:]
I am here to claim my throne, with all the rights, as the old King’s son
Lead the Warriors of ice, victorious, immortalized

[Chorus:]
The Lion’s blood that runs in me, it’s time for you to see
The one who stands the storm alone
The rightful heir to the throne
Hammer high, towards the sky
The world shall hear my battle cry

The time is now, by strength defined, descend the Lion's bloodline
It's in my blood, my destiny
No defeat, no retreat
My Lionheart shall lead the way
A new king will arise today

[3rd:]
I have come to prove myself and blaze the trail of my father’s name
My charge to keep, by blood I'm bound, to conquer every battleground
Progress made, before excuse, the world is mine to rule

[Chorus:]
The Lion's blood that runs in me, it's time for you to see
That I will stand the storm alone
The rightful heir to the throne
The Lionheart will lead the way
Your new king will arise today

[Last Chorus:]
The Lion's blood that runs in me, it's time for you to see
It's in my blood, my destiny
There's no defeat, no retreat
My lionheart shall lead the way
As new king, see me rise today

I was born, with Lions blood
I was born, a Lionheart
6. The Ice Storm (1:37)
(Instrumental)
"Push... Push...

War! War!"
7. The Light Will Rape Us All (3:48)
[Verse 1:]

A threatful whisper, lays the foundation

Of a new build, where I’m all!

Chaotic nightmares, progenies of the flesh

An omen of what lies ahead!



[Pre-Chorus 1:]

You don’t see, but you believe

In dreadful light, and heresy

The words you heed, won’t justify

The acts of greed; as darkness rise!



[Verse 2:]

A flaming rage, of deceit that feeds

On all and everything between!

I am all you fear, yet all you need

But I will remain unseen!



[Chorus:]

The light will rape us all!

Sacrifice your life, to find what lies behind

The words that binds your soul

The light will rape us all!



[Pre-Chorus 2:]

Do you think, it’s justified

To enslave and conquer, your own kind?

With every threat of great disaster

Your hollowness, shows even faster!



[Spoken:]

Sacrifice your life, to find what lies behind

The words that binds your soul

The light will rape us all!



[Last Chorus:]

You sacrificed your life

To serve what’s in your mind

Cause nothing binds your soul

Yet light will rape us all



The light will rape us all!
8. My Journey Ends Within (5:32)
[Verse 1:]

Can I ever break this curse? Is there any remedy?

Why am I the one to blame? Why am I your enemy?

All of your poisoned words; your venom fills my veins

I’m done with your abuse; I am now you enemy!



[Pre-Chorus 1:]

But I begin to lose control, I give in to agony

Cause nothing’s what it used to be (and) soon I’m lost to apathy!

When I have lost it all; give myself to the agony

(Please) Don’t try to set me free, (cause) I am lost to apathy!



[Verse 2:]

The battle rages on, a war inside my head

When heart and sense collide, there will be no clarity!

I fight against myself, in a war I cannot win

Lost to insanity, I embrace calamity!



[Pre-Chorus 2:]

I refuse to take control, cause I know how this will end

Internal war takes its toll and soon I’m lost to apathy

Have I finally lost it all? Is this all that I’m meant to be?

In the end there is no peace, cause I’m already lost to apathy!



[Chorus:]

I KNOW THIS IS; How my journey will end!

This tragedy; it ends within!

I KNOW THIS IS; The end of a dream!

THIS IS ALL; My Journey Ends Within!



GO!



[Pre-Chorus 3:]

How come you never learn? How come your heart still yearns?

This is all we’ll ever be, you let it end with agony!

How come I never learn? How come my heart still burns?

You’re everything that I define; as cause and reason for these lines!



[Chorus:]

I KNOW THIS IS; How my journey will end!

This tragedy; it ends within!

I KNOW THIS IS; The end of a dream!

THIS IS ALL; My Journey Ends Within!



Lie for lie; I believed it all! Mile for mile; thought I would never fall!

Bend or break; did everything for you! Blood for blood; until everything is gone!



[Chorus x2:]
9. Insanity Unleashed (3:20)
[Verse 1:]

Rising like a tidal wave, and with time comes only pain

Keep digging, this will be your grave

No rest, no peace for the insane!



[Chorus:]

Further down the spiral goes

The lies that shines, the truth that dies

Detect, neglect and don’t reflect

Just close your eyes and pretend that you’re perfect



[Verse 2:]

Take me home because I want to leave

This labyrinth of distorted dreams

Oh anger, guide me through

Please show me the way, and what to do!



[Chorus:]

So tell me, what do you prefer?

The silence or the spoken words?

All horrors will soon be revealed

Because time won’t heal what you conceal



Further down the spiral goes

The lies that shines, the truth that dies

Detect, neglect and don’t reflect

Just close your eyes and pretend that you’re perfect



[Break:]

Filled with hate and no regrets

Still in denial, lost in the depths

The sea of lies, becomes your tomb

And by your grave, your debt is paid



We have lost it all, we have lost it all



All we are and all we have;

It means nothing when we die

All you were and all you had

It means nothing when you’re gone



[Chorus:]

So tell me, what do you prefer?

The silence or the spoken words?

All horrors will soon be revealed

Because time won’t heal what you conceal



Further down the spiral goes

The lies that shines, the truth that dies

Detect, neglect and don’t reflect

Just close your eyes and pretend that you’re perfect



[Last Chorus:]

You paint the world in red and black as every memory takes you back!

Let go of hope, embrace your fear because time won’t heal the wounds you wear



Further down the spiral goes; the lies that shines, the truth that dies!

Detect, neglect and don’t reflect; open your eyes, you’re far from perfect!
10. All It Takes (4:31)
[Verse 1:]

To war, again! To face both blood and pain

Will name be told; as my bravery unfolds?

Through storms of snow and ice, to fight back this demise

Undefeated to the grave; our legacy, sealed on this day



[Pre-Chorus 1:]

I promise I'll be fine! This last fight will define

How our proud history, forever speaks of victory!



[Chorus:]

With a gun held in my hand - I will defend our land

All we love, all that is ours - It is worth to fight and die for!



[Spoken:]

Our enemies will soon behold, the power of the winter’s cold!



[Verse 2:]

We served and we defended! Our deeds will be remembered

When we are dead and gone, you won’t forget all that we've done!



[Pre-Chorus 2:]

Our moral amplified! Remember how we died!

Let's make the history, tell of our victory!



[Chorus:]

With a gun held in my hand - I will defend our land

All we love, all that is ours - It is worth to fight and die for!



[Spoken:]

Our enemies shall soon behold, the power of the winter’s cold!

Our vengeance will be furious, because war is always merciless!



[Acoustic:]

With a gun held in my hand - I will defend our land

All we love, all that is ours - It is worth to fight and die for!



One last stand and soon we’re gone, I won't be coming home

Because our freedom's not for sale! And one day you'll hear our tale!



[Stick:]

Our thousand lakes! All it takes!

Our legacy, will soon be complete! And there will be, no retreat!



Thousand lakes! All it takes!

So sing, our song! The day, when we are gone!



[Pre-Chorus 3:]

The moral amplified! In the snow we fought and died!

Through the ages the history, will speak of victory!



[Chorus:]

With a gun held in my hand! Sworn to defend our land!

All we love, all that is ours! It is worth to fight and die for!



[Last Chorus:]

One last stand and soon we’re gone! We won't be coming home!

Our freedom is not for sale! And one day you will hear our tale!
11. Punishment of Life (6:58)
[Verse 1:]

Empty and hollow, I've suffered so long

This piece is too tragic, wish I could be strong

But the void inside me grows

With, each, breath



For everything that must come to an end

For all of you who've been through the same

For the life that we made, then somehow just lost

There is no return... We're dying!



[Chorus 1:]

There is no point in asking me why

The ghost of your past is here and alive

Still haunting you, until the end of time

Affecting your mind and making you blind



[Verse 2:]

Remember these words, the day when I'm gone

Here are all of my thoughts, I've written them down!

Everything that I wanted to say,

But never said, to you



Left of me is an empty shell

A tragic excuse of my former self

I question my own reasons to breathe and exist

I'm dying!



[Chorus:]

Feeding itself from every lie

The ghost of my past is still alive

Your eyes would bleed before the truth

The dream we shared, were only mine



For the heart that broke and can't be repaired

One final scream for what lies ahead

The ghost is with me all of the time

The dream we shared, were only mine!



[Break:]

I want you, to scream my name!

Once more, before we both die!

This time, I'm your everything!

Come enter the darkness, and see what I see



I am; the start and the end

I am; your life and your death

I've changed my mind, you'll suffer much more

As the punishment, of life; is yours!

IS YOURS!
12. Suicidal Final Art (6:01)
[Verse 1:]

What happened to us? Please answer, don't neglect

All the questions that I have; so I can stop to reflect!

Cause from the past, there is no escape

And I should learn, to accept our fate!



[Chorus 1:]

These words, these lines

Yet you fail to see the signs

Of my dark and dying heart

My Suicidal Final Art



So here we are

We went, too far;

Move on, restart

Suicidal Final Art



Death won't give, anything

But neither did you!

Death will take, everything

And that will be a relief



[Verse 2:]

The echoes in my head, all the memories of hell

But tomorrow will bring, my bittersweet farewell



[Chorus 2:]

These obstacles

That I can't overcome

My dead, dark heart

My Suicidal Final Art



From friend to foe

Over night

There's no restart;

Suicidal Final Art



Death won't give, anything

But neither did you!

Death will take, everything

And that will be a relief



[3rd:]

My friend, I'm sorry,

But I don't know what to do

But now, I'm free

And I know that you are too



So here's, the last, that I will ever write

The chronicles of all that I despise





HERE WE GO!!





Frustration grows, over answers that I can't find

I realized tonight, you’re forever on my mind



For all we had, all that now is lost

Your shadow is always near; the face of all I fear



The hatred burns, cause I still hear your voice

The anger that I feel, these wounds can never heal



For all I had, all that I have lost

Your shadow seems so real; the face of all my fears



The face of all my fears!



[Chorus:]

What we had, remains a dream

My dying heart, Suicidal Final Art

Our memories, still makes me scream

Rewrite this part, Suicidal Final Art



Death won't give, anything

But neither did you!

Death will take, everything

And that will be a relief



Death won't give anything

And that's okay for me!

Death will take everything

Because you’re insignificant
