Holy Land Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Crossing (1:57)
[Instrumental]
2. Nothing To Say (6:21)
Long ago, the same sky above;
"It's lonesome when the sun goes down";
A day had come when we were like one:
- Weapons up, never surrender!

Oh, I saw the gleams of gold
We'd kill and die conquering a virgin world
The hold corrupted by the honour

Living forevermore, leaving today
Back to my place, I've got
Nothing to say!

Guilt and shame, it's all so insane
Pagan gods die with no defence
And we could go no further at all
Digging the graves of our conscience

Oh, the sounds, they still echoe
All of us drifting on seas of blood
The hope hidden behind the horror

Living forevermore, leaving today
Back from this land, I've got
Nothing to say!
Living forevermore, leaving today;
For all what remains I've got
Nothing to say!

Oh, how many years have gone
Every morning I bare myself from love
The love rising up from the sorrow

Living forevermore, leaving today
For all what remains I've got
Nothing to say!

Living forevermore - Nothing to say!
Back to my place, I've got...
Living forevermore - Nothing to say!
For all what remains, I've got
Nothing to say!
3. Silence And Distance (5:36)
Been here for so long
On the morrow I'll dare
Silent and distant
Reaching out, unaware
Stealing the whispers
From my deepest request

And you watch me
Waiting for something new
My hands, as empty
As my body and soul
Could keep pretending
But in the heart I'd be gone...

Still stare at my face
But lost seem your eyes
Keep hold of the sails
Against the blue sky

Ooh, I'm intending
A way back to the sea
This emptiness burns inside
And leads on for endless miles

Don't let me go
Away across the sea,
It may be much more wide
Than what it seems to be

Ooh, I'm still searching
The way back to be freed
The loneliness hangs around us
However we can't see

Now let me go
Away across the sea,
The waves can't be as high
As they pretend to be

And now I know
In my heart, I won't forget
The sails against the blue sky
That taught me how to live

... with no sorrow
And tomorrow we'll share
Silence and distance
'till our faults are repaired
You'll be the mistress
Who I'll never forget.
4. Carolina IV (10:36)
All I see floats with the wind

All the miracles of the water
Are the miracles never seen

Somehow my life now begins

This music that's been played through time
Now starts to reach my feet

Feels like the flood of my needs

From the harmony of forever
Sound the melodies of the sea

And you will know on the way
I'm coming back to my enemies
I'm turning around
I'll be just coming back to my last days
I'm coming back to the sea!

So... why won't you come with me, my friend?
Thrills... like we had before
Hope... never showing up the same
For a lonely man

Since the day we left the land
We've been anxious on aproach
Captain kept showing his plans:
"Under sail we go!"

Deep the ocean's blue I stare
The reflections of my soul
We have with us a special guest
And for him we made a toast

Carolina IV took a river to the sky
Seven men on board taking part
To take their hearts around
All around, around the world!

All I can recall that day
On that very day for sure
All hands up against the haze
As we attempted the return

Carolina IV took the river to the sky
One man less on board - human dreams
Have sometimes cost their lives,
All their lives dreaming

I've been such a fool
I've been so afraid
From my heart to you I say:
- I'll be here to stay!

Nothing much left from the boat
Many years have been and gone
Still I can't forget the past
And the ones I left at home

Carolina IV took the river to the sky
Windy whistling nights
Made me sail right into the wind's eye
Now I'll die singing:

I've been such a fool
I've been so afraid
From my heart to you I say:
- I'll be here to stay!
5. Holy Land (6:27)
We were born in a Golden Age
Beyond the creed
Blown with the winds to meet
The ones who creep
And pray
Unshold feet traces on fresh sand
A map unfold
Spreading out knowledge,
Magic and love
And then ... ooh, and then,

Carried by wooden gods
We leave toward the sky
Gushed out the holy blood
From those who die
To bless

Ooh, and dance...
Ooh, still dance... Someone has sent
Somebody here
To bring an age
Long disappeared

Holy Land - Throw your scars on me!
My soul just tends to be
Your friend Holy Land - Holy Land around
Holy Land - Holy Land is all...

Someone has sent
Somebody here
To bring an age
Long disappeared

Holy Land - Show your signs to me!
'cause I'm still here to see
Your face Holy Land - Holy Land around
Holy Land - Holy Land is all...
Holy Land, Holy Land...
6. The Shaman (5:23)
Oh boys, I've seen the old man;
Straw mask around the forehead
The blaze, a blast and the awakening dead
(The magic seeds will spread...)

The bleeding warrior, he has fought
(Healing leaves, piranha teeth, nobody leaves this place 'till
the dawn!)
Against the passion, for the love
(Serpent skin, a savage scream, don't you believe, it grows and
grows...)

Oh boys, it's all so easy:
Warn up the soul
While the body is freezin'!...
- I swear it!

Against the men for the land,
Against the beast to survive
Against the demons to keep the faith
(The spirits and the fate...)

A word - together they will shout!
(Run and pray if you're afraid you better stay away from it all!)

A rumble shakes up all the ground
(Start to sing, to turn and spin, get rid of all your sins right
now!...)

Oh boys, it's all so easy:
Warm up the soul
While the body is freezin'!

A word - together they will shout!
(Healing leaves, piranha teeth, nobody leaves this place 'till
the dawn!)
Against the passion, for the love
(Start to sing, to turn and spin, get rid of all your sins right
now!...)

Oh boys, it's all so easy:
Warm up the soul
While the body is freezin'!
Still we can hope a single word together;
Warm up the soul...

- Boys, I swear I've been there!
7. Make Believe (5:53)
Sat beside the meadow
Watching weeds agrow
Cleaned up all the ashes
Of my soul

Wrote down my own sentence
Now you take your way
Fades the last remembrance
Of your lovely pretty face

I, after all,
Just a lonely man - a lonely heart! Working on the future
Floating on fate
Faced the circunstances
Cleared up the shades, so

Make believe
There's no sorrow in your eyes
Can't you see
We could never get back from the start
Minutes waiting, life's been wasted
... maybe I wanna die some other day
Hear the whispers of your hope
The answer wasn't told
No, don't laugh seeing me cry
The end I've left behind
(... the whispers of your hope are left behind!)

Make believe
There's no sorrow in your eyes
Can't you see
We could never get back from the start
Minutes waiting, life's been wasted

And I've tried,
Maybe you deny
Words of peace
For the future of our lives
Bring to me
Something else than a broken heart
I won't wait 'till my life is wasted
... maybe I wanna die some other day
8. Z.I.T.O. (6:05)
Somehow I turn around and see
My nerves break down inside
Maybe you might know much more than me
So tell me what is right to say

Down the weakness of my soul
Lie the secrets, and I know
There's something pushing back
Wish my hands could turn to gold
And my heart would break the cold
To give my thoughts some sense

The turn is close, new century
Still people think they're kings
Now you've got your voice,
Your own speech
Don't wait 'till someone else agress

Swimming naked of beliefs
And responsabilities
Just feel the sea of bliss
Mother nature brings to me
In fantastic purity
Everything I need

Like a teenager discovery
What's more delightful than this?
Try to remember how good it was
Feeling the life as it is
To believe!

New world was born out of man's dreams
Now we walk on our own
The angels cried, you've heard them weep
But now it's time to make them sing!

Swimming naked of beliefs
And responsabilities
Just feel the sea of bliss
Mother nature brings to me
In fantastic purity
Everything I need

Like a teenager discovery
What's more delightful than this?
Try to remember how good it was
Feeling the life as it is
To believe!
9. Deep Blue (5:47)
Three cliffs there stand
High above where high winds howl
Surrounding silence
Three birds climb, then turn to fall

Waiting for someday when the ocean and sky
Will cover up the land in deep blue
Renaissance is over and I wonder:
- Should I always be the same once again?

Take my hand and follow
Sweeping trees, the coats of green
Time has no place tomorrow
Feel the good in endless dreams

Waiting for someday when the ocean and sky
Will cover up the land in deep blue
Renaissance is over and I wonder:
- Should I close my eyes and pray?
- Feel like I've betrayed?
- Always be the same?

... always be the same once again?
10. Lullaby For Lucifer (2:48)
On the sand, by the sea
I left my heart to shed my grief
A vulture came begging me:
- Feed me with this piece of meat!

I won't give away
Something I need

On a garden nursery
I let my fancy wander free
Children playing around a tree
Sharing apples happily

Come and rest with me
Lay your hands on dreams

I'll wait here by your side
'till you fall asleep
I'll wait until you cry
All over me the tears you hide inside...
11. Queen Of The Night (bonus track) (4:37)
Japanese And French Bonus Track]

Awaken the crystal bell of sorrow
Caught ourselves pretending our frustations
Were gone
Once again, instead of facing the day
We ran away; closed our eyes
To keep learning on feelings we had

We were close
Misty memories of a past come by
And I'll write my pray
On your face of hidden secrets
Never shared, freezing soul

Dreams last forever
To the empress of the dark
Lay down on eternity
Your music in the air
Great delight in the symphony
Our dance will never end

The Queen of the Night
The master of wisdom
Pretending desires
With the grace of thunder

The Queen of the Night
The feast of illusion
Pretending desires
With the grace of thunder
