The Showdown Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. The Showdown
SHOWDOWN!

I've been searching for longer than I can remember
I believe in on a hope that will meet again
Well I've been praying that I will get just one more chance
And I've been dreaming that this night would come

You thought all was over, that you never would see me again
Stop to look over your shoulder but is far from over yet

This is the night
The final dark where we will meet
The rescue insight, is only you and me
This is the fight
The final war that will end it all
I will make things right
Are you ready, ready for the showdown!
Ready for the showdown!

You've been hiding deep within the darkest shadows
And you've been hoping that I would forget but I never forget, no
You've been wishing that I only exist in the dreams
You've been dreaming this night would never come

You thought all was over, that you never would see me again
Stop to look over your shoulder but is far from over yet

This is the night
The final dark where we will meet
The rescue insight, is only you and me
This is the fight
The final war that will end it all
I will make things right
Are you ready, ready for the showdown!

You thought all was over, that you never would see me again
Stop to look over your shoulder but is far from over yet

This is the night
The final dark where we will meet
The rescue insight, is only you and me
This is the fight
The final war that will end it all
I will make things right
Are you ready, ready for the showdown!
Ready for the showdown!

Are you ready for the showdown!
I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready for the showdown
Ready for a showdown
2. Judgement Day
I will try to understand all your intentions
It's a whole new world of strange interventions
Yet I'm still grown to it, still grown to it

We have grown to understand mortal freedom
What it leads to the prices we have to pay
It's firing back on us, and this might be the game

[Chorus:]
You still wait for a sign, for the stars to be aligned
You still hope, you still pray, as you wake a Judgement Day

Yeah, wake up!

You've been hanging on to false explanations
From the oldest books that needed no questioning
After all you believed, you would be freed, oh yeah

I'm still standing here with facts, with a purpose
Trying to make you hear, need you to be listening
I am telling you, this might save you this time

[Chorus x2]
Ooh, as you wake up!
As you wake a Judgement Day!

[Solo]

[Chorus]

Wake up!
As you wake a Judgement Day!
Wake up! Wake up! Yeah! Wake up! Wake up!
3. Never Again
Her tiny voice makes such a noise
It still echoes in my mind
Do not speak, just try to sleep
Rest your weary head
It’s time for me to leave now
It’s time to set the record straight
It’s time for me to leave now, she says

Never again, you won’t trust in strangers again
The words the say, cut like razorblades
Time after time you say
Never again, you won’t trust in strangers again
You pass them by, like the changing skies
Time after time you say

So full of life the waters run
Through the valleys down below
I sit and watch to clear my mind, trying to focus now
The lies have got to end now
She needs to know the truth somehow
The lies have got to end now, she says

Never again, you won’t trust in strangers again
The words the say, cut like razorblades
Time after time you say
Never again, you won’t trust in strangers again
You pass them by, like the changing skies
Time after time you say
4. Turn All Into Gold
At first it seems like there is no life
No hope and no dreams
Only embraced by the silence
You know it s here the time has arrived
When the past will be erased
And all your dark thoughts will fade away
You can change it
Only you can
Turn all into gold
Make everything glow again
Make the stars shine
The world is yours and mine
It burdens your heart, haunting your mind
Knowing that you are the only one
That can save yourself
An army of ghosts whisper in your ear
Making you hesitate
Making you stay in the dark
You can change it
Only you can
Turn all into gold
Make everything glow again
Make the stars shine
The world is yours
Turn all into gold
Make everything glow again
Make the stars shine
The world is yours and mine
Only you can change it
Only you, only you can
Turn all into gold
Make everything glow again
Make the stars shine
The world is yours
Turn all into gold
Make everything glow again
Make the stars shine
The world is yours and mine
5. Bloodlines
Rising with the setting sun
Never time to rest
Had to get this off my mind
Get it off my chest
Re-appearing deep inside
Scenes I can not stand
She is fading out of time
Bloodstains on my hands

She was all I had in mind, we would runaway
Whispering to haunt my mind, every single day

All I left behind was tears
And cries of great despair
She said she would meet me there
Once my work was done

Ara! You left me hanging high and dry
Never told me why
Can I, can I undo what I have done
I thought you were the one

Seem I cannot settle down
They'll pickup my trace
I am known in every town
Pictures of my face

Everything s reminding me
Of all the time we spent together
She will come to rescue me
She will hear my cry

Ara! You left me hanging high and dry
Never told me why
Can I, can I undo what I have done
I thought you would outshine the sun

There's a movement at my door
Maybe she has found my hideout
Things will be like just before
Bloodlines sealed my fate

Ara! You left me hanging high and dry
Never told me why
Can I, can I undo what I have done
Ara! You left me hanging high and dry
Never told me why
Can I, can I undo what I have done
I thought you were the one
6. Copernicus
I can see you now
Like a million suns alight
As they pierce the darkest night
When all hope is gone and lost, I know…

When I was a child
I had the strangest dream
A thousand mirrors
All reflecting the same beam
It seem so hard
When you're left alone outside
To lack a part in all the greatest things in life

Now I'm at this crossroad
The light will be my guide

[chorus:]
I can see you now
Like a million suns alight
As they pierce the darkest night
When all hope is gone and lost, I know…

So real at the time
Making up my mind
A stronger current
Pulling me into its line
When all hope was lost
You became my friend
And now we stand here in unity again

Now we're at this crossroad
The light will be our guide

I can see you now
Like a million suns alight
As they pierce the darkest night
When all hope is gone and lost…

I can see you now
Like a million suns alight
As they pierce the darkest night
When all hope is gone and lost
When all hope is gone and lost

Forever I'll be here, right by your side
When all the times change and our worlds collide

[solo]

When I was a child
I had the strangest dream
A thousand mirrors
All reflecting the same beam

Now I'm at this crossroad
The light will be my guide

I can see you now
Like a million suns alight
As they pierce the darkest night
When all hope is gone and lost…
I can see you now
Like a million suns alight
As they pierce the darkest night
When all hope is gone and lost
When all hope is gone and lost, I know
7. We Will Rise Again
A battle between two different worlds
Different lives but we share the same sky
I still wonder why
Innocent souls have been torn apart
The guilty ones are far away by now
I still wonder how

We have been in darker places
The angels will protect us
We know evil has many faces
We won't be fooled anymore

[chorus:]
Beneath the sky far from the stars
We're ready to fight for what is ours
There have been so many wars
The time has come when we will rise
Too many years of pain have past
We will reclaim our throne at last
The days of darkness will end now
The time has come when we will rise again

We are still alive and still have hope
Gather ones more this black winter night
Prepare for one last fight
Ignore the cold ignore the pain
Don't listen to the sound of the enemies closing in
This time they won't win

We have been in darker places
The angels will protect us
We know evil has many faces
We won't be fooled anymore

[chorus]

We have been in darker places
The angels will protect us
We know evil has many faces
But we won't be fooled again

[solo]

[chorus]
8. The Guardian
The creature spoke to me
Said, the moment you see me
That's when I, I will leave you be
All that I'd become
The restless soul, had now
Disappeared, in tranquillity

The watcher on the stairs
The threshold of despair
Was the one, who would talk to me

All my life I've waited, and anticipated
Hoping I'd someday awake

[chorus:]
Here I stand, and I'm watching and I'm waiting
In your hands, and my journey can't be over yet
My last stand, my life in your hands
Can't turn back no more
No more

So who are you I see?
The angel watching me
From above, as I go to sleep?

All my life I've waited, and anticipated
Hoping you'd someday arrive

[chorus]

[solo]

All my life I've waited, and anticipated
Hoping someday you'd arrive
All the knowledge you have
That I'm dying to have
I am ready with an open mind

Here I stand, and I'm watching and I'm waiting
In your hands, and my journey can't be over yet
My last stand, my life in your hands
Can't turn back no more, no more
My last stand, my life in your hands
Can't turn back no more, no more
9. Maya
Just for once, I can see it clearly, and I know
Change will come when I appear
Like a veil that's lifted from my eyes
Truth reveals itself, truth reveals itself

Silently, I will find the peace to meet the needs
Meet the needs from you and me
‘Cause I know it changes with one breath
So all I do is wait, all I do is wait

I'll make a change for you to see
I'll find the power within me
I can do anything I want
All that I need is your trust, your belief in me
If you just believe in me

Rise again, if they tie me down I'll break the chains
Break the chains that's holding me
Mind wins over matter just for once
And I will be set free, no boundaries for me

I'll make a change for you to see
I'll find the power within me
I can do anything I want
All that I need is your trust, your belief in me

If you should fall, I'll be the voice to guide you
Right beside you, I hear your call
When all the world comes crashing
World comes crashing down

I'll make a change for you to see
I'll find the power within me
I can do anything I want
All that I need is your trust, your belief in me

I'll make a change for you to see
I'll find the power within me
I can do anything I want
All that I need is your trust
Your belief in me
In me
10. The Artist
I remember when, chasing shadows ends
As a child I was never like this
Many times I've tried, asking myself why
Why I still go on chasing this dream

What am I to do?
All I know is what I feel is true
It's a challenge for life
Every day feels like night

[chorus:]
I, I will become, and when I've won
When I have conquered time and space
I will live on and you will remember what I've done

In another time, maybe somehow I
Would have gotten another chance
If their minds could change
Somehow rearranged
With eyes opened they'd see my deeds

What am I to do?
All I know is what I feel is true
It's a challenge for life
Every day feels like night

I, I will become, and when I've won
When I have conquered time and space
I will live on and you will remember what I've done

[solo]

I, I will become, and when I've won
When I have conquered time and space
I will live on and you will remember what I've done
Written in stone, I will live on
You will remember what I've done
I, I will become, and when I've won
In time I'll live for ever on
11. Eternity
I know I'm not here alone
I can hear them sigh and moan
Though it's dark here
There's a presence I can feel
As the world spins round once more
Closing one more opened door
I find comfort in the words she used to say
So now I'm on my way

[chorus:]
I, I have made my point for you to see
Still, all the borders seem so closed to me
I, I will try once more ‘cause
I'm on the right way you see
Wait, I'll be waiting for eternity, I will

Maybe we can work this out
There's no need to scream and shout
I am standing here so hungry and so cold
One by one we fell apart
Though united in our hearts
Now I know that I have taken it too far
Breaking through the stars again

I, I have made my point for you to see
Still, all the borders seem so closed to me
I, I will try once more ‘cause
I'm on the right way you see
Wait, I'll be waiting for eternity, I will

[solo]

I, I have made my point for you to see
Still, all the borders seem so closed to me
I, I will try once more ‘cause
I'm on the right way you see
Wait, I'll be waiting for eternity
I, I have made my point for you to see
Still, all the borders seem so closed to me
I, I will try once more ‘cause
I'm on the right way you see
Wait, I'll be waiting for eternity, I will
