King of Persia Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. King of Persia (9:06)
Every night it crawls into my mind
burning anger, iron hand
empty tombs that I have left behind
down the Nile, that sacred land

All the deeds I have done in the past
'fore my eyes, right from the start
the end has finally come, it's here at last
now dying, I'm torn apart

But an angel came and called my name
King of Persia woe to you I say
and I knew I'd never be the same
out of darkness I have found the way

Far beyond eternity, far from the dark
take me there, just leaving sorrow behind
well, breathing my last breath by your side
I believe I will be redeemed


Ev'ry night I have the same bad dream
about the table of the sun
I seem to know what this should mean
Ethiopia not undone!

Blinded I turned to fratricide
there is only pain I feel inside

Far beyond eternity, far from the dark
take me there, just leaving sorrow behind
well, breathing my last breath by your side
I believe I will be...

Far beyond eternity, far from the dark
take me there, just leaving sorrow behind
well, breathing my last breath by your side
I believe I will be redeemed

Solos

Far beyond eternity, far from the dark
take me there, just leaving sorrow behind
well, breathing my last breath by your side
I believe I will be...

Far beyond eternity, far from the dark
take me there, just leaving sorrow behind
well, breathing my last breath by your side
I believe I will be redeemed
I will be redeemed
2. The Choice (4:15)
Always been an underdog
'cause nobody believed in you

Only sadness filled your heart
you felt you were wasting your life, felt left out

You've got the choice
your inner voice
just do whatever you need to

Don't have no fear
future is clear
you have that strength
and the will to go on

So you're running far from home
'cause there's nothing left there for you

Now the light shines through the clouds
and you have no single doubt, not anymore

You've got the choice
your inner voice
just do whatever you need to

Don't have no fear
future is clear
you have that strength
and the will to go on

Solo

You've got the choice
your inner voice
just do whatever you need to

Don't have no fear
future is clear
you have that strength
and the will to go on
3. In the Name of God (4:11)
Legions of knights riding for God
Bringing his word to the world
And who not believed died by the sword
The blood is as high as a wall

They tortured the people right to their death
And told that’s the will of their God
But after they burned there in the stake
They prayed to god: “Please forgive them”

All in the name of god
And all under the sign of the cross
For their might they will never stop
Until the last unbeliever is gone

Look at the priest in his holy robe
Preaching on us from above
But behind the walls, when everyone´s gone
He´s beating and raping a boy

As long as there´s nobody telling the truth
He will go on with this mess
And after the “Amen” he´s smiling to him
Telling him: “You´re forgiven”

All in the name of god
And all under the sign of the cross
For their might they will never stop
Until the last unbeliever is gone

As long as there´s nobody telling the truth
He will go on with this mess
And after the “Amen” he´s smiling to us
Telling us: “You´re forgiven”

All in the name of god
And all under the sign of the cross
For their might they will never stop
Until the last unbeliever is gone
4. Flying (4:38)
Every night I have the same dream
I'm running far away
a crowd of people trying to catch me
then I fall off a cliff… don't turn away

Flying, flying through the clouds
still alive and screaming loud
“Come and catch me now, if you can!”

Flying, fly where ever I want
with the freedom to go on
and the wind under my wings

Everybody wants to steer me
telling what to do
I don't wanna be everyone's darling
I just want to be free… yes, I 'm free!

Flying, flying through the clouds
still alive and screaming loud
“Come and catch me now, if you can!”

Flying, fly where ever I want
with the freedom to go on
and the wind under my wings

Solo

Flying, yes I'm flying through the clouds
still alive and screaming loud
“Come and catch me, if you can!”

Flying, flying through the clouds
still alive and screaming loud
“Come and catch me now, if you can!”

Flying, fly where ever I want
with the freedom to go on
and the wind under my wings

People tell me ”Go left!”
people tell me “Go right!”
people tell me I need to start a fight
don´t wanna listen to them
I just wanna be left alone

Someone tells me to stop
someone says to go on
people driving me crazy to the bone
need to find my own way
need to find my own paradise
5. A Farewell That Wasn't Meant to Be (6:33)
Music has faded yet echo fills the dome
The audience is left there on its own
First act is over, another won't come
Blank sheets of a score undone
And lowered eyes
hide unquiet minds

On a stage of concert hall
died the sound of dirge to mourn
A while of silence resounds the essence
with your song

Room is now empty for icons' guarding gaze,
carnation petals have been blown away by wind
Your hand still stroke the wooden neck
and fingers count the strings
The grief, unease
soon will be relesed

On a stage of concert hall
died the sound of dirge to mourn
A while of silence resounds the essence
with your song

Solo

On a stage of concert hall
died the sound of dirge to mourn
The while that stuck in time
becomes now verse in rhyme

On a stage of concert hall
died the sound of dirge to mourn
A while of silence resounds the essence
with your song

Dedicated to Tomáš Čelechovský (1966 - 2012)
6. Children of the Light (7:08)
Rumors, indications
fearsome expectations
fulfilled, counting the darkest hour

Deadly constellation
history recreated

Warning, ultimatum
timeless hate substratum
sign's been put right there on our front doors

Ruthless tide momentum
no way back, now or ever

You will see the Light
in your new found home again
Heaven shall greet you

Children of the Light
you've been cast into darkness
Tyrannized and brutalized
meant to die

Children of the Light
you've been enslaved or slaughtered
Let your cries be heard forever
till those sins are all undone
Time is gonna come!

It's been brute invasion
conquest, confrontation
time is running, all flee in thousands

Utmost desolation
misery, helpless hunted

Terror, liquidation
honor deprivation
temples burning, no life is sacred

Evil installation
genocide taking over

You will see the Light
in your new found home again
Heaven shall greet you

Children of the Light
you've been cast into darkness
Tyrannized and brutalized
meant to die

Children of the Light
you've been enslaved or slaughtered
Let your cries be heard forever
till those sins are all undone
Time is gonna come!

Solos

Children of the Light
you've been cast into darkness
Tyrannized and brutalized
meant to die

Children of the Light
you've been enslaved or slaughtered
Let your cries be heard forever
till those sins are all undone
Time is gonna come!
7. Siren Call (2:54)
Blessed be the one
who has been put to shame
does not heed the siren call

Blessed be the one
who's been out of the game
sees a rise that leads to fall

All around the world
sound these voices endlessly
all along the way
we follow them carelessly

Siren call
nameless history
one by one
we fall embracing misery

Siren call
echoes still in me
shall I fail?
will I break free?

Blessed be the ones
who are brave, dare to speak
fortune, fame against disgrace

Blessed be the ones
who've been merciful, meek
anytime and anyplace

Solo

Siren call
nameless history
one by one
we fall embracing misery

Siren call
echoes still in me
shall I fail?
will I break free?
8. Live to Tell the Tale (6:32)
So here I stand
sand in my hand
all that makes me wonder if things
happen to be true

Days passing by
no, I won't deny
can't deny it any longer
I only think 'bout you

Time and again
yeah, just once again
is it right or wrong?
please tell me if you know at all

Never again
no, please not again
I can't take it anymore, no!
I have hit the wall

How many times
do I have to end this way?
How many times
do I have to fall or sway?

Indeed I know
that you do not feel the same
I hope you know well
you know it's not a game

Will I live to tell the tale
catch the rainbow fading

Will I live to tell the tale

Lost, still not found
though safe and sound
making sure that I won't tumble
where I did before

Now reality's
the place I need to be
I don't want my world to crumble
close the open door

Time and again
yeah, just once again
is it right or wrong?
please tell me if you know at all

Never again
no, please not again
I can't take it anymore, no!
I have hit the wall

How many times
do I have to end this way?
How many times
do I have to fall or sway?

Indeed I know
that you do not feel the same
I hope you know well
you know it's not a game

Will I live to tell the tale
catch the rainbow fading

Will I live to tell the tale

Solo

How many times
do I have to end this way?
How many times
do I have to fall or sway?

Indeed I know
that you do not feel the same
I hope you know well
you know it's not a game

Will I live to tell the tale
9. Unwelcome (5:14)
Lo, you've come to me
so everyone could see
and people hold out their hands:
"welcome, deliverance!"

A long time has passed
since Tiberius' reign
Seville is no Jerusalem
and you set foot in my domain

Why have you come to hinder us all?
Do you want to see papal throne crumble and fall?
There's nothing to add to what you had once said
An idol is made, let crowned is its head

Look around and witness with your eyes the best of human breed
these strayed sheeps of Babylon won't bite the hand that feeds
In your name we've done what must be done - we herd together everyone
who bring their freedom to us and lay it at our feet

Miracle, mystery,
divine authority
Three powers you have condemned
on a plain of desert sand

Our hands not yours
will hold banner high
A crowd of joy and happiness
in sign of mystery you once denied

Your foolish belief in freedom of men
embodies a filthy horde awaiting command
The table has turned so why you can't see
you're not welcome here, get out, disappear

Look around and witness with your eyes the best of human breed
these strayed sheeps of Babylon won't bite the hand that feeds
In your name we've done what must be done - we herd together everyone
who bring their freedom to us and lay it at our feet

Solos

Look around and witness with your eyes the best of human breed
these strayed sheeps of Babylon won't bite the hand that feeds
In your name we've done what must be done - we herd together everyone
who bring their freedom to us and lay it at our feet
