Chapter IV: The Reckoning Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Lost and Found (3:34)
I've seen where rivers flow
How strong the wind can blow
I've seen the end of the rainbow
I've really seen it all

At the edge of the world
There is no pot of gold
But that's how far I had to go
To find out where's my home

Sailing ‘cross the ocean
To be near you
Sailing ‘cross the sea
To be finally free

Can you hear me through the night
I'm reaching out to you now
No matter what they say about me
I know you won't turn me down
You never turned me down

I've seen the world from the sky
I've seen it upside down
But i've never seen so clearly
There's more than meets the eye

Sailing ‘cross the ocean
To be near you
Sailing ‘cross the sea
To be finally free

Can you hear me through the night
I'm reaching out to you now
No matter what they say about me
I know you won't turn me down
I was lost, now i'm found

Can you hear me through the night
I'm reaching out to you now
No matter what they say about me
I know you won't turn me down
You never turned me down

Can you hear me through the night
I'm reaching out to you now
No matter what they say about me
I know you won't turn me down
You never turned me down
I was lost, now i'm found
2. The Secret of the Sea (4:09)
As I gaze upon the blue sea
All those pleasant visions haunt me
All the old romantic legends, all my dreams

They keep coming back to me

Like the waves on a shore
Where the sand as silver shines
Flow its unrhymed lyric lines
Unveiling the ocean's secret
Till my soul is full of longing
I can feel the thrilling pulse
That the heart of the ocean
Sends through me

In each sail that skims the horizon
In each landward blowing breeze
I behold that stately galley
And I hear those mournful melodies

I can hear the helmsman chant a mystic song
I wish I could learn the secret that it holds

Like the waves on a shore
Where the sand as silver shines
Flow its unrhymed lyric lines
Unveiling the ocean's secret
Till my soul is full of longing
I can feel the thrilling pulse
That the heart of the ocean
Sends through me

I can hear the helmsman chant a mystic song
I wish I could learn the secret that it holds

Like the waves on a shore
Where the sand as silver shines
Flow its unrhymed lyric lines
Unveiling the ocean's secret
Till my soul is full of longing
I can feel the thrilling pulse
That the heart of the ocean
Sends through me
3. The Voice in the Wilderness (4:55)
Clothed just with camel's hair
Leathern girdle ‘bout my loins
Spent my days on desert sand
I'm sent to baptize in this land

The kingdom of god is at our hands
Repent and believe
All heaven doors shall open wide
Great things shall you see

I baptize you with water
Make straight the way of the lord
Behold the lamb of god
He takes away the sins of the world

I saw the spirit coming down
As a white dove from heaven
This is my testimony
He is the son of god

I only tell the truth, I fear no one
You'd have to cut off my head
To quiet me down

I baptize you with water
Make straight the way of the lord
Behold the lamb of god
He takes away the sins of the world

I baptize you with water
Make straight the way of the lord
Behold the lamb of god
He takes away the sins of the world
4. Prophet of Doom (5:02)
It was not my own ambition to become a prophet
I was just a boy when I heard the call
For my teachings I was beaten
Mocked and often ridiculed
Almost starved to death locked up in a tank

Hear my voice, mark my words
I am here to warn you
For your kingdom will burn in flames
From the north, to your doors
Comes a gruesome disaster
Sound the trumpet throughout the land
Now's the time for you to repent

If you do not like the message
Do not blame the messenger
Change your evil ways
You brought this on yourselves

Hear my voice, mark my words
I am here to warn you
For your kingdom will burn in flames
From the north, to your doors
Comes a gruesome disaster
Sound the trumpet throughout the land
Now's the time for you to repent

Hear my voice, mark my words
I am here to warn you
For your kingdom will burn in flames
From the north, to your doors
Comes a gruesome disaster
Sound the trumpet throughout the land
Now's the time for you to repent
5. The Magi (4:46)
Out there in the distance
We see it's glance
It keeps on shining
Showing the way

It's almost like we were dreaming
Now it is all coming true
There is no way it is an illusion we know
This is a sign from above

From the east we're coming
To bethlehem
We saw a bright star
Upon this land
We went a long way
We followed the sign
They call us magi
Mystics we are

As it was foretold
So shall it be done
The kings of all nations
Will bow and kneel down

On our way back, we will hurry
In a dream we have been warned
Jealous king herod hatched a demonic plot
We better not be caught

From the east we're coming
To bethlehem
We saw a bright star
Upon this land
We went a long way
We followed the sign
They call us magi
Mystics we are

Descendants of seth
The guardians of prophecy
Monklike we are
In silence we pray

With gold in our hands
Myrrh and frankincense we come
Homage we pay
The new born child

It's almost like we were dreaming
Now it is all coming true
There is no way it is an illusion we know
This is a sign from above

From the east we're coming
To bethlehem
We saw a bright star
Upon this land
We went a long way
We followed the sign
They call us magi
Mystics we are
6. Quitters Never Win (5:18)
Now you are on the road
It ain't no easy one
You walk from dusk till dawn
You leave it all behind
No matter how hard you try
You can't please everyone
No point to fight against the wind
Can't stay dry in the water

There is no other way around this time
No, not this time, you cannot turn around

Go for what's right, this is your fight
Tremendous power is in your hands
Conquer the fear, care ‘bout what's real
Don't let the agony kill your dreams
Better start right now

Something that looks like a loss
Might turn into a win
Winners they never quit
Quitters never win

There is no other way around this time
No, not this time, you cannot turn around

Go for what's right, this is your fight
Tremendous power is in your hands
Conquer the fear, care ‘bout what's real
Don't let the agony kill your dreams
Better start right now

Go for what's right, this is your fight
Tremendous power is in your hands
Conquer the fear, care ‘bout what's real
Don't let the agony kill your dreams
Better start right now
7. Tempter of Evil (4:12)
Now take a look down and see the splendor of this world
All kingdoms I own
I'll give them to anyone I want

You would not ever be in need
‘cause it all would be at your feet
Your sword would rule the nations till
I get back to take your soul

Don't trust the liar
Never telling you the truth
Playing with fire
Won't do any good for you
Tempter of evil
Wicked deceiver

The castles of gold
All goblets of glorious victory
All this i'll give you
If you will bow down and worship me

You would not ever see misery
Your rod would change history
You'll hold the throne of this land till
I get back to take your soul

Don't trust the liar
Never telling you the truth
Playing with fire
Won't do any good for you
Tempter of evil
Wicked deceiver

You would not ever see misery
Your rod would change history
You'll hold the throne of this land till
I get back to take your soul

Don't trust the liar
Never telling you the truth
Playing with fire
Won't do any good for you
Tempter of evil
Wicked deceiver
8. When Freedom Fails (5:54)
Evil is rising once again
I can now smell it in the air
Twisted minds moving on with their plan
Sociopaths to rule all men

This is no time to give up again
Now is the time to stand up and yell

No man escapes when freedom fails
All the best men will rot in filthy jails
And those who cried "appease! Appease!"
Are hung by those whom they tried to please

Citizen spies and skynet drones
Highway checkpoints, martial law
Training for slave mentality
Collective guilt, insanity

Eyes in the skies, are now watching you
You're being taxed for everything you do

No man escapes when freedom fails
All the best men will rot in filthy jails
And those who cried "appease! Appease!
"are hung by those whom they tried to please

Oh... We are on our way
Oh... We won't go astray
Oh... We are on our way
Oh... We won't go astray

I wonder, how did we come to this point?
How did we lose all sanity?
As we turned away from god
We let all hell break loose

No man escapes when freedom fails
All the best men will rot in filthy jails
And those who cried "appease! Appease!
"are hung by those whom they tried to please
9. The Kingdom of Heaven (4:43)
The kingdom of heaven
The kingdom of heaven is near

Proclaim the good news
The kingdom of heaven
Has come now near
We're on our way

Like a sheep into the midst of wolves
Dragged before kings and governors

We raise the dead, we heal the pain, we cast out demons
We hold the truth, all in his name, we are free men

We take no gold
We take no copper in our belts
No bag for the journey
We let our peace come to you

We are hated because of his name
If they hand us over, we won't fail

We raise the dead, we heal the pain, we cast out demons
We hold the truth, all in his name, we are free men
10. Bells Are Tolling (7:14)
Hope for a better day
May soon come your way
You never know
Who's at the door
Who's to come
What's to be done
Tomorrow is a mystery

Bells are tolling, in the open air
Angels singing
You hear it everywhere
And there's no more pain
Left to feel in vain
For you

A time to love again
A time for peace again
A time for war
Is now gone
A time to hate
Does not await
Today is a gift of god

Bells are tolling, in the open air
Angels singing, you hear it everywhere
Bright lights shining, all through your way
Beams are gleaming and brightening the day
And there's no more pain
Left to feel in vain for you

There is a time for everything
And a season for every activity
Under the heavens
A time to be born and a time to die
A time to search and a time to give up
Whatever is has already been before
In its time all has been made beautiful
In the human heart there is eternity
Yet no one can fathom what god has done

Bells are tolling, in the open air
Angels singing, you hear it everywhere
Bright lights shining, all through your way
Beams are gleaming and brightening the day
And there's no more pain
Left to feel in vain for you
