Requiem of Time Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Testament Of Rock
Early in the morning; it's time for you to go
I guess you're a disciple of the clock
You're dreaming away, I hear what you say
To live a life so boring is nothing we can do
We're writing down the testament; the testament of rock

We came into the light; with rock we conquered the fear
Hard times, life was a fight; in denim and leather with hearts made of steel
Banged our heads against the wall,
Raised our fists and yelled
Knock, knock open up the door;
It's alive
So sing with me
We'll always sing our fighting song

[Chorus:]
We'll never stop; forever strong, it goes on and on and on
We're here to write the will; the testament of rock

Get lost you posers of fraud; low life you run with the pack
Stay true, no mainstream betray;
We live as we learn
Let us take you to burn
Sold ours souls to rock'n'roll to live forevermore
If it's too loud than you're too old;
Scream it out and let it bleed
Another day another song

[Chorus:]
We're writing down the testament, it's our last will and our last call
Writing down the testament; we're bound to rise and you shall fall

[Solo]

Banged our heads against the wall;
Raised our fists and yelled
Knock, knock open up the door;
It's alive, so sing with me
I'll always sing my fighting song

[Chorus]
2. Power And The Glory
In the land of the dark where the horsemen ride
It is written and told 'bout the other side
They are disciples without knowing why
And they're blessed with a gift; so determined to die
Heaven and Hell; fire and ice

[Chorus:]
It's the power and the glory
In paradise you'll be rewarded for your sacrifice
It's the power and the glory
Now it's your turn, set the unholy people to burn

In the cold of the night in the pale moon light
Say a prayer to the one and his last goodbye
Captured by evil and makers of lies
Trapped in a world where the outcast will rise
Fortunate and fame; life is a game

[Chorus:]
It's the power and the glory
In paradise you'll be rewarded for your sacrifice
It's the power and the glory
Now it's your turn, set the unholy people to burn

[Solo]

We're talking 'bout heaven and Hell; fire and ice

[Chorus:]
It's the power and the glory
In paradise you'll be rewarded for your sacrifice
It's the power and the glory
Now it's your turn, set the unholy people to burn
3. Rainbow Warrior
Defenders of the world now forsaken
Stealers of the sun in the making
Chaos and destruction all around this time
Mirror, mirror: who's the liar?
To be or not to be; who was the soldier with a heart?
Master and slave, so many miles apart

[Chorus:]
You must surrender tonight, there will be a tomorrow
Words must be stronger than weapons of steel
Remember the days in a decade of sorrow
Come to life rainbow warrior
The rainbow warrior

Protectors of the earth; profit maker
Surfing on the waves; nuclear shaker
I may be a cynic but you'll burn in Hell
Infant killer down in fire
Ten tons of metal goes down to the bottom of the deep
Ghost of the sailor and the guardian of the sea

[Chorus:]
You must surrender tonight, there will be a tomorrow
Words must be stronger than weapons of steel
Remember the days in a decade of sorrow
Come to life rainbow warrior

The man on the moon awake in the night
The king of the sea; is God left behind
A twist of the truth, a child of rebirth
In colors so bright here on earth

[Solo]

Who was the soldier with a heart?
Master and slave, so many miles apart

[Chorus:]
You must surrender tonight, there will be a tomorrow
Words must be stronger than weapons of steel
Remember the days in a decade of sorrow
Come to life...

You must surrender tonight, there will be a tomorrow
Words must be stronger than weapons of steel
Remember the days in a decade of sorrow
Come to life... rainbow warrior
The rainbow warrior
The rainbow warrior
4. Call Of The Wild
Here's a song I will sing, you're a clown, I'm a king; I'm still alive
You're a fake, a disgrace, wipe that smile off your face; I'll take you down
Because some day there may be a cure for this burning
The rage in my soul, I'll be coming back for more

[Chorus:]
I'll return to the call of the wild
Cold case or a son of a gun
On my way to the place where I'll meet my maker
Won't rest 'til I die; I'll return to the call of the wild

Well I read it myself in a book by the shelf, became mesmerized
It was all about me and my wish to be free from the fools around
It's no joyride to be on the top of the mountain
The best of the art; there are enemies everywhere

[Chorus:]
I'll return to the call of the wild
Cold case or a son of a gun
On my way to the place where I'll meet my maker
Won't rest 'til I die; I'll return to the call of the wild

[Solo]

You must go, you're no good
I'm so tired of the creatures only here to ruin my world
Shut your mouth, nobody cares; this is the call of the wild
...and I'm still alive

[Chorus:]
I'll return to the call of the wild
Cold case or a son of a gun
On my way to the place where I'll meet my maker
Won't rest 'til I die; I'll return to the call of the wild
(call of the wild)
(call of the wild)
I'll return to the call of the wild
(call of the wild)
(call of the wild)
And I'll never return to you again
5. St. Peter's Cross
Satanic tribute or a holy sign; it's burning tonight
Turned upside down, the last will of the crucified
Rise; all you people must rise to make them all realize
This is a war we cannot win
Life is a dark road and it's leading straight to Hell

[Chorus:]
Are they divine or occult those who kneel by St-Peter's cross
See the altar of the damned; St-Peter's cross

Symbolic value caught up in between the cross and the belief
Unholy game; it cannot be an happy end
Liar, you're going down in fire; you'll have to stand before Lucifer's trial
In this human sacrifice
Road to redemption but the masters don't ask twice

[Chorus:]
Are they divine or occult those who kneel by St-Peter's cross
See the altar of the damned; St-Peter's cross

[Solo]

A simple sinner or from Heaven sent; of innocence born
Turned upside down, the last will of the crucified
Life is a dark road and it's leading straight to Hell

[Chorus:]
Are they divine or occult those who kneel by St-Peter's cross
See the altar of the damned; St-Peter's cross

Are they divine or occult those who kneel by St-Peter's cross
See the altar of the damned; St-Peter's cross

St-Peter's cross

Oh yeah!
6. So Many Days So Many Nights
The wizard in white; as the day turned to night in the year of never
Observing the sky as the wolf starts to cry; sleep forever
See the bleeding faces, fell the winds of lost places again
So many days so many nights
So many days so many nights; dreaming
A sorcerer's spell, he kills and he tells about the gods forsaken
Possessed by the sign, the cursed and the rime; wicked taker
See the bleeding faces, fell the winds of lost places again

[Chorus:]
So many days so many nights, dreamer, screamer, look at the world
So many days so many nights, danger, stranger, walk through the black
So many days so many nights, So many days so many nights
So many days so many nights
They're standing on the outside, they try to get in

[Solo]

The wizard in white; as the day turned to night in the year of never
Observing the sky as the wolf starts to cry; sleep forever
See the bleeding faces, fell the winds of lost places again

[Chorus:]
So many days so many nights, dreamer, screamer, look at the world
So many days so many nights, danger, stranger, walk through the black
So many days so many nights, The wizard in white
So many days so many nights, I have wondered...
7. Blood River
Hear the sound of the river, it'll drag you down
You've been walking through the fire
You've been raised in misery; in the name of God
See the rage of the water and prepare to drown
Like the wounded wants a doctor, son you really need a boat
To stay alive as nature's running wild

[Chorus:]
Blood River; sail away
When you see the light, the time has come to pay
Blood River
You may try to run, they'll find you anyway

By the shore someone's laughing; now it's you against the world
They've been lying they have cheated, made a wasteland of the earth
without knowing why the innocent must die

[Chorus:]
Blood River; sail away
When you see the light, the time has come to pay
Blood River
You may try to run, they'll find you anyway

Life is not a fairytale; life is not a game to play
longing for last goodbye, waiting for the final trial

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Blood River; sail away
When you see the light, the time has come to pay
Blood River
You may try to run, they'll find you anyway
8. Anthem Of The Dark
This is the anthem of the dark
They are here again; the spirits of the dark
In the house of the holy; with the Devil's mark
Shine on; shine on; forever and forevermore
I can see it clear so please turn off the light
Making melodies and words about astral nights
Dream on; dream on; tomorrow belongs to the sun

[Chorus:]
Don't fear what you hear, salvation is near
Today's not a good day to die
Don't deny what you see; it's time to believe
The notes that we found in the ark
The anthem of the dark
Uprising from the twilight zone
The anthem of the dark
He was sentenced to oblivion

On the witches hill the madness has begun
Resurrection of the outcast; the falling one
Angel of angel; he laughed when you fell from the sky

[Chorus:]
They are here again, the spirits, the spirits of the dark
In the house of the holy; with the Devil's mark

[Solo]

Now we offer you the music of our souls
First the stone begins to bleed and then it'll start to roll
Shine on; shine on; your kingdom shall finally rise

[Chorus]
9. Metal DJ
He played Sabbath bloody Sabbath
In the basement people worshiped in stereo
Best friend was Uriah, I tell you loud and clear
Boys get ready to fight; all right we are princes of the night
Weekend warriors, disciples of hard rock radio

[Chorus]
He was a Metal DJ
Metal DJ; once and forever
Metal DJ
Like children we learned, he took us to burn

Black night and star struck
With a whole lotta love at space station number 5
Charlotte the harlot saw when Rosie broke the law
Boys get ready to fight; tonight we are hungry like before
Vinyl renegades; destroyers of public radio

[Chorus]
Our tables have turned

Metal DJ; I raise my glass
Metal DJ; I fill my cup
Metal DJ; I drink to you

[Solo]

He played the heavy songs
He was our mentor
With lessons in rock

[Chorus]
And don't you know he was a Metal DJ
Metal DJ, playing all the heavy songs
Metal DJ
We lived and we learned he took us to burn
And don't you know he was a Metal DJ
Metal DJ; once and forever
Metal DJ
Like children we learned, he took us to burn
We drink to you
Heavy Metal DJ
10. Fire And Flame
Lost and gone, traces found; evil souls and evil hearts
Lost in the twilight, the day can't be found; heathens of the holy ground
They are lying; the prince of the dark says it's time to come home
Evil injections go straight through the heart, people with the Devil's mark
It is rising, the kingdom of pleasure and eternal pain
Set them free, soon they'll have to see
No one can be blind when he stands by the masters of
Hell and Heaven

[Chorus:]
To burn in the fire and flame again and again
Two people of lust in the unbroken chain
In the fire and flame, no light in the black
Into the pyre of man; fire and flame
Fire and flame

Satan is anxious he wants to come home, virgin of the holy man
They are strangers; thousands will gather to pray in their names
Set them free, soon they'll have to see
Maybe they will find a haven somewhere in between
Hell and Heaven

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus]
11. Greenfield Of Life
My pretty little angel eyes, every little thing you do to me
I know your love will kill me
Pretty little angel eyes, every little word you throw at me
I know someone will break us down
Forgive them too blinded to see

[Chorus:]
Because it's third strike and out; hitting the balls in the light
Greenfield of life
Third strike, I'm done; missed the test flight to the stars
Greenfield of life

Adrenaline starts to pump, get in to a state of misery
This time no one can take me
I only see it black or white, beaten by my own hypocrisy
This time I want you to hold me down
Forgive those who did not believe

[Chorus:]
Because it's third strike and out; hitting the balls in the light
Greenfield of life
Third strike, I'm done; missed the test flight to the stars
Greenfield of life

I can never believe in what I see; I can never foretell about the need
I am a liar I play it in repeat; I am the fire you never gonna see

I can never believe in what I see; I can never foretell about the need
I am a liar I play it in repeat; I am the fire you never gonna see

[Solo]

Someone will break us down; forgive them too blinded to see

[Chorus:]
Because it's third strike and out; hitting the balls in the light
Greenfield of life
Third strike, I'm done; missed the test flight to the stars
Greenfield of life

Third strike and out; hitting the balls in the light
Greenfield of life
Third strike, I'm done; missed the test flight to the stars
(Greenfield of life)
Greenfield of life
(Greenfield of life)
Greenfield of life

Greenfield of life
12. The Healer
As I left with a grin you stood by the grave
A pilgrim's confusion. From the crypt came the fools on parade
Was born with this urge. The future looked bright
They called me the chosen one blessed with this might
Then on the stage I saw that crippled little child
In tears before the new born savior

[Chorus:]
I got the power to heal
I got the power to heal
While you run like a rat in your wheel
I got the power to heal
I got the power to heal
Now I'm sick of your lies
Be sure of that I have got the power to heal
The power to heal

My path may be grim, but I do what I like
A menace to wisdom, I'm the nail they're so eager to bite
Am I dirty or clean or something in between?
My mind may be broken but my heart's made of steel
The hand of late is here to lead me through the night
Just like a soldier of desire

[Chorus:]
I got the power to heal
I got the power to heal
In control of the cards that you deal
I got the power to heal
I got the power to heal
When you clutch after straws
My call says that I have got the power to heal

[Solo]

[Chorus]
13. Evil Spirits Fly
Heavy thoughts in the dark
Hell on earth for the man without a heart
Suicide worth a try; let the sky fall down
All alone forever lost like the stranded
On the shore where specters cry

[Chorus:]
Evil spirits fly, you can't hold on
There's nowhere to hide
When evil spirits fly above us all
Forever and ever, forever and ever more

What is life, what is lust?
If you're stuck inside a world you cannot trust
Exorcised by the words from your poisoned mind
In the torture of the night, ask the angels
For the road to peace

[Chorus:]
Evil spirits fly, you can't hold on
There's nowhere to hide
When evil spirits fly above us all
Forever and ever, forever and ever more

[Solo]

All alone forever lost like the stranded
On the shore where specters cry
Evil, oh so evil

[Chorus:]
Evil spirits fly, you can't hold on
There's nowhere to hide
When evil spirits fly above us all
Forever and ever, forever and ever more

And we all must die, we all must die
Evil spirits fly
14. When Darkness Comes
Hand on the bible; hand on the book that speaks of war
Two different faces of the world
Now and for always; look there behind the walls of time
To blind the world and see

[Chorus:]
When the darkness comes; screams of silence
Soon it's done; when darkness comes
When darkness comes

Life's just a requiem; death is a never ending song
Invite the spirits of relief to the house without windows
Lost since the days when legends lived
The only quest is to breathe

[Chorus:]
When the darkness comes; screams of silence
Now it's done; when darkness comes
Close the fire power child; it's the Devil's eye
When darkness comes
Is this the creation of new incarnations between good and bad?
A sign of the afterlife or a dream to be dreamed, to be dreamed

[Solo]

I believe the darkness, it's my only friend
Heavenly father; I no longer bother
Oh, I'm waiting for the day

[Chorus:]
When the darkness comes; screams of silence
Now it's done; when darkness comes
Close the fire power child; it's the Devil's eye
When darkness comes
You know, you know that you never will die
When darkness comes
