Cold Desert Moon Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Sinner's Soul (3:55)
Listening to voices which rumble incessant inside
He runs embarrassed he's haunted with the fury's shade
In the twilight zone
Rings the swan song
And the boatswain comes

In the dead of the night
When the sinner's soul died

Between two fires a lot of dreams ended in smoke
He was determined to see how his happiness broke
In the twilight zone
Rings the swans' song
And the boatswain comes

In the dead of the night
When the sinner's soul died

A faded beauty for too long has wallowed in vice
She sees in the mirror her demands now are ostracised
In the twilight zone
Rings the swans' song
And the boatswain comes

In the dead of the night
When the sinner's soul died

While the moon did shine bright
At the Styx seamy side
When the sinner's soul died
2. The Law (6:13)
Kings are killing in the name of the law
The crown empowers all this creatures
Men of the street have to lick 'em the paw
They're oppressed by false preachers
Those who commit breach of faith
Are condemned to death by fire

Men are tormented in the name of the law
Livin' in misery's life in the raw

They are tortured in the name of the law
They are burned on funeral pyres
They are oppressed in the name of the law
They are dying in the name of the law

Snares of the devil are blinding the world
They're chasing after shadows
You only survive as a curl
In this world reigned by heresy and slap-stick shows
They lock your soul in dungeons
Where it's finally starving to death
Kings are obsessed by hunger for more
They're speaking with the tongues of liars

Men are tormented in the name of the law
Livin' in misery's life in the raw

They are tortured in the name of the law
They are burned on funeral pyres
They are oppressed in the name of the law
They are dying in the name of the law

Epidemic disease will cover the land
While the lords adore their reflections
Of splendour and luxury
In the headway streets the rats gaining ground
While the knell is ringing continuously

Men are tormented in the name of the law
Livin' in misery's life in the raw

They are tortured in the name of the law
They are burned on funeral pyres
They are oppressed in the name of the law
They are dying in the name of the law
3. Breach of Faith (5:19)
Take the holy oath of allegiance
'til death does you part
Guileful shines the street of chance
Are you still true at heart?
Every star dies away

Whip I can hear your slash cut in your flesh
Bleeding vows run out cold of that gash

They call it breach of faith
You've gone bad ways

Kiss you started a fire I am in heat
Unrestrained devote to a real treat

You call it breach of faith
I paved the way

Dare the leap in the dark
When the wild one is calling
Hear the leader bark
When the night is falling

I'm the thorn in the flesh of your promise
Bitter tastes to receive Judas' kiss

They call it breach of faith
I've gone bad ways

I am the mean decoy
While the wild one is calling
I'm born to destroy
Want to see men falling

Don't try to bury lust in canting dust
Blood runs hot feel it break through the crust

They call it breach of faith
Break out of that cage

Dare the leap in the dark
When the wild one is calling
Hear the leader bark
When the night is falling
4. Yells of Rage (4:19)
An eye for an eye
Your black spite clouds the sky
Now you row
We beat you on your brow

You've gone too far now my blood seeth with hate
You unbarred the sealed gate

All pent up rancour now blazes it's trail through the crust
You turned the knife in the wounds of pride 'til they bust
My belly wall explodes and I rave outta my mind
There's no way to bring me to reason

The fire is out of control
My eyes flash with anger and I can hear

Yells of rage
Are conquering the land
Take the gage
All the evil can't be banned

Yells of rage
Are pealing in the haze
Take the gage
Blood is seething in that blaze

We came to blame eternal grumblers for their sin
They gibe our lives 'til I jump outta my skin
You canted sympathy
Just means a red rag to me
Don't bottle up grief inside your soul

The lights are out the fuse is blown
My eyes flash with anger and I can hear

Yells of rage
Are conquering the land
Take the gage
All the evil can't be banned

Yells of rage
Are pealing in the haze
Take the gage
Blood is seething in that blaze
5. Misty Hills (4:16)
For far too long we suffered under your yoke
Grief turned to wrath the voice of freedom awoke
That's the last straw now we're ready to rise in arms
Rabble's curse gathered to break his charm
His enraged heart sweltered venom all over the land

We can't understand

Striding the blast of demonic raiders
If you find heaven you gonna find out tonight

Seek the light of the white candle
Disdaining fortune only kills
The flame is too hot to handle
But guides through the misty hills

The owl shrieks and you're numb by fear
Avoid to sip of the poisoned chalice
Amber of evil your heart sears
Chase away the mind of malice

The cry of freedom howled out in the desert air
The waste of blood was it foul or was it fair
Striding the blast of demonic raiders
If you find heaven you gonna find out tonight

Seek the light of the white candle
Disdaining fortune only kills
The flame is too hot to handle
But guides through the misty hills

Seek the light of the white candle
Disdaining fortune only kills
The flame is too hot to handle
But guides through the misty hills
6. Children of the Dawn (4:03)
Children of the dawn
At the brink of their fathers' graves mourn
Remind us of the done wrong
The distant ringing of the bells announce the king's approach

Dawn is embracing their hearts wrapped in ice
Dew falls from dawn's children eyes
Dawn is embracing their hearts wrapped in ice
Dew falls from dawn's children eyes

Shadows dance upon the graves
Into the glance of a new morning
The daily fight between darkness and light
Fallen angels dread haunting this holy place
At the edge of decay
The gorge of hell they face
While dawn's children slip into the day

Dawn is embracing their hearts wrapped in ice
Dew falls from dawn's children eyes
Dawn is embracing their hearts wrapped in ice
Dew falls from dawn's children eyes

Dawn is embracing their hearts wrapped in ice
Dew falls from dawn's children eyes
Dawn is embracing their hearts wrapped in ice
Dew falls from dawn's children eyes
7. Doomsday (4:03)
What is behind the final door
Misgivings show an open sore
Your disbelief brings on decay
Soon we all know the time of day

I see it before my mind's eye
The flames of wrath blaze through the sky
Avenging angels in their chariots
Bringing down the scorching breath of death

Can't follow the ray of light
Cause it's the day of doom
Can't follow the ray of light
The hope dies tonight

The sisters turning on their wheel
The sun was black the moon was red
When the lamb opens the seventh seal
A black cloud calls up deadly threat

Can't follow the ray of light
Cause it's the day of doom
Can't follow the ray of light
The hope dies tonight

I wish you had the second sight
You burn in this fire rain tonight
Every blow tells in a long run
Our destination has begun
Still your soul remembers every dead
What you've done finally goes to seed

Can't follow the ray of light
Cause it's the day of doom
Can't follow the ray of light
The hope dies tonight
8. Cold Desert Moon (6:36)
Before day you cross the floor
Abandon me so lonely
Luck's an enticing whore
Guarding the flame of love

Craving in moonlit nights for dawn
The king will strike the pawn
Strength prevails you can't deny it
All our vows turned out a lie

I make my way out in the cold
My buried heart starts to unfold

I feel flaring up the fire
While I wallow in the mire
In my mind I am in tune
With that cold desert moon

Silver rays at the horizon
Make my fears look phony
Who can I rely upon
I've to fight alone

Wandering through dreary nights of doubt
My heart is on the scout
It's your chance so baby try it
Don't follow in the cry

Finding your way all by your own
Under the sway of the unknown

See the stars glaring above
Sending you the spark of love
In my mind I am in tune
With that cold desert moon

See the stars glaring above
Sending you the spark of love
In my mind I am in tune
With that cold desert moon
9. A Dragon's Tear (5:38)
Time will take him to a site where sleeping fires glow
The last dragon's fight once here ended with a blow
The blade crashed the gate through his mail of scales
He was convulsing with pain all his strength turned to remain
A blood-red tear dropped from his eye
He's keeping this feeling inside
And it crystallised in the dragon's tear

Feel his memory flow
Step on his wings and you'll know
If it's the way you want to go
The cry of dismay fills the air
Don't waste our earth without care
Live and let live or down you go

They just ride him out of spite 'til fires start to glow
In that drag he thrives
keeping this feeling inside
In the turn of the tide his mind's wide awake
Now he feels what's on the stake
There's a shine
He's under the spell of this charm
The necklace will do him no harm
Cry the dragon's tear

Feel his memory flow
Step on his wings and you'll know
If it's the way you want to go
The cry of dismay fills the air
Don't waste our souls without care
Live and let live or down you go

Mother bears three sons tonight a dire fate begins
In the lack of drive for harmony and insight
They ride for a fall at the tide of chance
When the half-moon crosses the star
You now well Armageddon isn't far
Remember your mother now son
You're feeling the feeling you're one
In the dragon's tear

Feel his memory flow
Step on his wings and you'll know
If it's the way you want to go
The cry of dismay fills the air
Don't waste our blood without care
Live and let live or down you go
10. Nobody's Child (3:46)
Look away you might see children cry
I glimpse their dead eyes while I pass by
Bodies are slight they will sell' em tonight
You'll find need everywhere nobody cares

In this world you're nobody's child
Doomed to go your own lousy way
No one warms their cold hearts they're nobody's child
There's no mercy till the end of all days

With French bread pretend to care
Spruced up with false charity
In the night of pity the glamour glares so bright
Unveiling their ice cold cheeks

In this world you're nobody's child
Doomed to go your own lousy way
No one warms their cold hearts they're nobody's child
There's no mercy for them all

Look away you might see children die
They rummage our waste while we're passing by
Open your eyes and don't shut your mind
Faint hearted men pretend they are blind

In this world you're nobody's child
Doomed to go your own lousy way
No one warms their cold hearts they're nobody's child
There's no mercy at all for nobody's child
11. Masquerade of Life (5:09)
I'm standing by the window
The rain is falling coldly
Thoughts are dancing in my head
The world sleeps in silence
Darkness touches my body
Thousands of fiery eyes
From the other side of life
I want to get out of this masquerade

Masquerade of life - I want to get out
Masquerade of life - set me free

I can feel the change in me
The fire bird in my soul burns
I'm a wolf in a bad time
I'm not running in a pack
I'm fighting for a better time
Inside of me it's so empty
Pictures of the past pass my eyes
Silver arrows in the wind

I'm fighting for a better time
Inside of me it's so empty

Masquerade of life - I want to get out
Masquerade of life - set me free

Masquerade of life
Masquerade of life
