Astralion Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sisslith
1. Mysterious & Victorious (5:22)
She comes in disguise
Brings fire and ice
Tears will follow her trail
Blessed by the moonlight
A goddess of night

A small sacrifice
She's given it twice
In allies where darkness prevail
Still it doesn't feel right
A dirty deed out of spite

Hurt me, angel of sin
Ride me, my heroine

Mysterious so mysterious
There's a darkness behind her eyes
A tapestry of pain
Victorious always victorious
But there's a secret behind her smile
Like a dried out blood stain

A dark crimson tide
I can never hide
Runs from my wounded heart
She drinks it like a vampire
Until the last drop

A black iron sky
Makes me question why
She's tearing me apart
Ripped up like a flat tire
I'm bound to stop

Hurt me, angel again
Ride me, drive me insane

Mysterious so mysterious
There's a darkness behind her eyes
A tapestry of pain
Victorious always victorious
But there's a secret behind her smile
Like a dried out blood stain
2. The Oracle (5:34)
Deep in a trance
Speaking in tongues
Sharp, cold and venomous
Like a rattlesnake

While dark shadows dance
She fills me with song
I'm slipping into a dream wide awake

Were they good dreams
What did you see?
Moonlight, laughter or war
For coming centuries?

Dark whispers and words
Sworn secrecy
The seven faces of god are staring at me

And her eyes are burning like the stars
And her hair is married to the wind
Still her disguise can't cover up her scars
Buried deep underneath her skin

Dressed up in white
Cleansed from all sin
Standing in the cold breeze
Of the Shadowland

Night after night
She struggles within
Tonight she will die by my hand

And her eyes are burning like the stars
And her hair is married to the wind
Still her disguise can't cover up her scars
Buried deep underneath her skin

Far-seeing beautiful goddess of night
Speak out now from your temple of light

And her eyes are burning like the stars
And her hair is married to the wind
Still her disguise can't cover up her scars
Buried deep underneath her skin
3. At the Edge of the World (4:11)
There is a place just for us
Where the horizon divides heaven and sea

The oceans we're sailing across
The wind and the waves they are speaking to me

Somewhere near
Where the sea touches the sky

We've never been this far before
Far away from all madness of mankind
There is no darkness anymore
No bloodlust nor envy in anyone's mind

Wish you could see what I see
The signs are all there in the wind and the rain

The mother of all fantasies
The bringer of peace, the end to all pain

Take me there
Where I can feel and touch the sky
We've never been this far before

Now see me standing at the edge of the world...
4. When Death Comes Knocking (4:32)
Running fast, chasing the wind
Without a glance behind

Burning, lost in feverish dreams
Am I starting to lose my mind?

Hiding in doorways
Just around the corner
Where dark shadows play
Someone's calling for me

Straight ahead, over the fields
Goes this deadly chase

Just when I see him
The next minute he's
Lost without a trace

Riding a pale horse
Holding his scythe
Messenger of death
Now he is coming for me

Angel of darkness
The reaper of souls is
Here to take me away

I stumble in coldness
Never before
Have I been so afraid

There's no mercy in his blackened heart
When he's waving the blade

I scream for help
For someone out there
To come to my aid

Riding a pale horse
Holding his scythe
Messenger of death
Now he is coming for me

Angel of darkness
The reaper of souls is
Here to take me away

I stumble in coldness
Never before
Have I been so afraid
5. We All Made Metal (5:41)
The sun rose like a blood red star
Behind mountains of rust
A blood red horizon filled with
Thick dark clouds of dust

Night and day hammering away
Melting steel lighting up the gray

The tower of the blast furnace
Shooting sparks from a black surface

We all made metal
An ocean of melting steel
We all made metal
Made it bleed out of the rock
We all made metal
We're not fake, we are real
We all made metal
Night and day, 'round the clock

Black, black as the souls of the dead
Heaps of coal everywhere
Smoke towers are piercing
Through the flesh of the air

Night and day thundering away
A black coal train stock on replay

The tower of the blast furnace
Ambers on a black surface

We all made metal
An ocean of melting steel
We all made metal
Made it bleed out of the rock
We all made metal
We're not fake, we are real
We all made metal
Night and day, 'round the clock
6. Black Sails (5:36)
While the winter wind wails
An old man stands on the shore

A black ship with black sails
Riding the waves of war

They've come to offer death, darkness and evil

They charged ahead to meet the foe
To fight for the glory of their clans

Knee deep in blood and snow
Swept away in a deadly dance

They're not afraid of death, darkness or evil

Arrows will fly, darken the skies
Their war cries will ring, across the hills

Many will die, still spirits are high
They march and they sing
Counting their kills

They fought with all magic and might
Determined to win at all costs
Red waves are rolling tonight
Foam stained with blood of the lost

Finally comes death, darkness and evil

Arrows will fly, darken the skies
Their war cries will ring, across the hill

Many will die, still spirits are high
They march and they sing
Counting their kills

Our hearts turning bolder
Our spirit grows stronger and...
7. To Isolde (5:26)
Don't go far away Isolde
I'll just close my eyes for a while
It's getting so much darker Isolde
I can no longer see your smile

The ferryman has come to take me away
Across the river to the other world

We believed we could have it all
Burning dreams in the lantern's light
A melody in the nightfall
The wildest tune of sweet delight

Will you be there by my grave Isolde
To remember how we rode the tide
Why all these bitter tears Isolde
We'll meet again on the other side

If you sit down
And listen on a quiet night
You will still hear my song

We believed we could have it all
Burning dreams in the lantern's light
A melody in the nightfall
The wildest tune of sweet delight

Just once more speak my name
Please touch my face once again...

If you sit down and listen on a quiet night
You will still hear my song

We believed we could have it all
Burning dreams in the lantern's light
A melody in the nightfall
The wildest tune of sweet delight
8. Computerized Love (5:26)
It's becoming reality
Right before your eyes
Stay connected and it's all yours
What a nice surprise

Magic from a computer screen
A false paradise
Satisfaction is guaranteed
But there is a price

Don't use your name
Is number one of the rules
Sign in if you dare

It's a dangerous game
Still we play it again
Desperately looking for love

No tears and no pain
Just a face without a name
It's what we've been dreaming of

We'll surrender, we'll give in
We let it inside our minds
All connected in fantasies
Never compromised

Hypnotized by the magic screen
Slowly you'll go blind
All you gave will come back to you
Com-put-erized

Don't use your name
Is number one of the rules
Sign in if you dare

It's dangerous game
Still we play it again
Desperately looking for love

No tears and no pain
Just a face without a name
It's what we've been dreaming of

When you open up your eyes
You'll see that all those lustful mouths
Are howling in pain

They're seeing straight through your disguise
It's time to bring your alibis
And gather your brain

All your pleasant fantasies
Soon becomes your enemies
Wolves at your door

No time for your apologies
You've awoken demon entities
They're screaming for more

It's a dangerous game...
9. Mary (Bloody) (6:06)
Do I dare to speak her name
In front of the mirror?
Tell me now if I have really lost my mind

My features disappearing
While my eyesight's getting blurry
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Am I going blind?

As the clock strikes twelve
I'm lighting a candle
Turning around while I'm chanting...

Mary, I can see your eyes now
Shining in the darkness
I'm longing for the slightest touch
Of your pale skin

She's waltzing through dimensions
By tearing through the glass walls
Come, come to me my love
I will let you in

As the clock strikes twelve
I'm lighting a candle
Turning around while I'm chanting...

Mary, Mary, Mary
Come to me bloody Mary
Mary, "mare", your name will make
The shadows obey
Mary, Mary, Mary
You are acting so scary
Mary, Mary please
Put the scissors away
Bloody Mary - you and I

Three times I call your name
Out in the darkness
Mary, Mary from the grave you will rise

I hear the tolling of a bell
Far in the distance
Will you show yourself
Before you slice my eyes

As the clock strikes twelve
I'm lighting a candle
Turning around while I'm chanting...

Mary, Mary, Mary
Come to me bloody Mary
Mary, "mare", your name will make
The shadows obey
Mary, Mary, Mary
You are acting so scary
Mary, Mary please
Put the scissors away
Bloody Mary - you and I

Mary, Mary quite contrary how does
Your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids in a row

Bloody Mary - you and I
10. Five Fallen Angels (5:14)
Majesty of my realm
Been here for eternity at the helm

Time to get away, face the limelight
And shine once again
Free us from our chains

Dignity is just a word
Drowning in the mysteries of the world

Aiming for the sky all united

Clutching at straws
Ready to die for the cause

We're five fallen angels
Cast down to earth
From the heavenly wars

We're the devil's minstrels
Have you ever heard
Such good music before?

We've been up and we've been down
Coming from the darkest outskirts of your town
You will see us playing with laughter
Singing through tears
Whispering a spell in your ear

We're five fallen angels
Cast down to earth
From the heavenly wars

We're the devil's minstrels
Have you ever heard
Such good music before

See us fly on broken wings
It's our turn to claim the sky

We're five fallen angels...
11. Last Man on Deck (13:16)
Part I (Captain John Davy)

So quiet not a sound
Before me only night

Alone out at sea
With no land in sight

I remember the day of our last goodbye

I have cursed and I've prayed
'cause sailors never cry

Why can't my sins just be forgiven
So I can be reached by the rays of sun

And once again be amongst the living
With all my deeds undone

And far far away
I'm closing my eyes
So I won't shed a tear
'cause a sailor never cries

Save me, please hear my voice
Over black waves and pouring rain

Hear me, give me a choice
Or my journey will be in vain

Sky and sea are suddenly meeting
In chaos dark and supreme

And I feel my heart beating
My ship floats into a violent stream

I'm so far away
I gaze at the skies
Still I won't shed a tear
'cause a sailor never cries

Save me, please hear my voice
Over black waves and pouring rain

Hear me, give me a choice
Or my journey will be in vain

Part II (The Kraken)

Far beneath in my abysmal sea grave
I open up my eyes

I've got you there in the calm of the storm's eye
I begin to rise

I'm the giant, I am the ancient
Creature of the deep

You are the blessed, you are the chosen
You disturbed my sleep

And so we meet eye to eye
Through the green waves

Seven long arms reach for the night sky
You're in my deadly grasp

I will awake you into this nightmare
Just to hear you gasp

Down, down into the rage of the night sea
We tumble on

For a moment in a deadly embrace then,
suddenly you're gone. And so we meet...

Deeper, sinking deeper
Life is fading, a calm is coming
I'm closing my eyes

Deeper, sinking deeper
Mist is fading, dawn is coming
One man will rise
Lo and behold - a miracle
The triumph of man over beast

Part III (Bittersweet Victory) Narrative

He is alive still he wishes he had died
Along with the creature he'd just
Fought and won

The sleep of the dead seems to him denied
Now after seeing his whole crew die
One by one

Day after day with no wind and no tide
Surrounded by ghosts from a distant shore

Night after night on the ocean he rides
Hands on the helm he steers to forevermore

Epilogue

So quiet not a sound
Above me only night

Alone out at sea
With no land in sight

I'm far far away on a wide, wide sea
Still come what may a sailor never cries

Save me, please hear my voice
Over black waves and pouring rain

Hear me, give me a choice
Or my journey will be in vain
