Dances of Death Part 3: Beyond the Gates Lyrics

Track rating :  80 / 100      Votes :  1     
Time - passing as the world changed it's face
Past - all that used to be not a trace
Now - all that was is gone can't you see

Always questions

What - happened to our world different now
Why - answers can't be found tell me how
Now - dissolution is all I see

As I meandered this world I saw strange faces
I've seen some gastly bizarre phenomenon
Such desolation and pain I can't describe it
But always something was there that led me on

Never saw place like this
How can such a place exist
Brotherhood of happiness
Inviting me I can't resist
How can such a thing exist
Inviting me I can't resist
Brotherhood of happiness
Never saw place like this
Never saw a...

The priests gave us reason
Brought hope to our season
They gave us the will to servive
It's healthy and clean here
It's just like a dream here
Just thank the priests you're alive

I had a vision - then it was gone
Something there I just can't put my finger on

Crys - from the other side calling me
Lies - message from beyond curse the priests
Why - I don't understand
Share the feast

Cataclismic

Dark - figures in the midst help denied
Death - tightening it's fist no reply
Rage - tell me what is this paradox

And as the people all dance in celebration
They seem so happy and so preoccupied
Somehow I don't understand this fascination
I think it all will be clear when I'm inside

Where did all these priests come from
What kind of men have you become
Serve and never question why
Worship Talons from the sky
What lies beyong the golden gate
A journey of uncertain fate
Serve and never question why
Serve and never question why
Question why

It's nicer that nice here
A real paradise here
It's really too good to believe
There's growing in knowing
And that's where I'm going
The gates are prepared to receive,
Receive - me
