The Masquerade Ball Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Arrival (Intro) (1:30)
2. Earls of Black (6:04)
A long time ago (there) was a cloud over heaven
Filled with evil (dragons) and snow
It came from the place where the voices were calling
(And) had a long time to go

Fire and water, the wind and the rain
Silence is filling the air
Blessed by the dark and the master is calling
You better be aware

But the blind leading the blind
(And) any fool can hear the chime
When the reaper cries, the spell is gone
You're on a magical ride

But the blind leading the blind
(And) any fool can hear the chime
When the reaper cries, the spell is gone
You're on a magical ride

Earls of black, flying high
Coming through the darkened sky
Earls of black
And they feel no surrender

Earls of black, flying high
Coming through the darkened sky
Earls of black
And they feel no surrender
Earls of black

Castles and kings, demons with wings
Only the strong will survive
Don't turn your back on the light
The evil's in disguise

Crystal light falling down from the sky
Is there a place where it's burning
Oh they say it's a mystery
No chance of returning

But the blind leading the blind
(And) any fool can hear the chime
When the reaper cries, the spell is gone
You're on a magical ride

But the blind leading the blind
(And) any fool can hear the chime
When the reaper cries, the spell is gone
You're on a magical ride

Earls of black, flying high
Coming through the darkened sky
Earls of black
And they feel no surrender

Earls of black, flying high
Coming through the darkened sky
Earls of black
And they feel no surrender
Earls of black

Woooh-ooh, oooh-oooh
Woooh-ooh, oooh-oooh

Earls of black, flying high
Coming through the darkened sky
Earls of black
And they feel no surrender

Earls of black, flying high
Coming through the darkened sky
Earls of black
And they feel no surrender
No surrender
Earls of black

(Earls of black)
Earls of black
3. Voodoo Nights (5:32)
Don't turn around, I got you under my spell
And never touch a rainbow
Don't fool around, life's so bad down in hell
Can you feel the wind blow

Wild child, you're live for the moment
No heading for tomorrow
You're hell on high heels, this game you can't win
But you still don't know

Backseat Rodeo can't let you go
Romancing Romeo, I don't put on a show

Voodoo Nights
Don't try to remember
Voodoo Nights
Escape from the dream
Voodoo Nights
No time to surrender
Living for the sin
Live for the sin

You're cold as ice and bad to the bones
Just looking for satisfaction
But I am no fool's, oh don't break the rule
Of this strange connection

Moving on and rolling the dice
Our hearts beating like thunder
There's nothing to lose, drinking champaigne on ice
Feeling "Voodoo" down under

Backseat Rodeo can't let you go
Romancing Romeo, I don't put on a show

Voodoo Nights
Don't try to remember
Voodoo Nights
Escape from the dream
Voodoo Nights
No time to surrender
Living for the sin

Voodoo Nights
Don't try to remember
Voodoo Nights
Escape from the dream
Voodoo Nights
No time to surrender
Living for the sin

Backseat Rodeo can't let you go
Romancing Romeo, I don't put on a show

Yeeeah
Voodoo Nights
Don't try to remember
Voodoo Nights
Escape from the dream
Voodoo Nights
No time to surrender
Living for the sin

Voodoo Nights
Don't try to remember
Voodoo Nights
Escape from the dream
Voodoo Nights
No time to surrender
Living for the sin

Don't try to remember
To remember
Voodoo Nights
Voodoo Nights
No time to surrender
Voodoo Nights
Don't try to remember
Voodoo Nights
Yeeeah
4. Night and Rain (8:06)
On my way and rain was falling down
There were faces in the mirror
Too blind to see they were crying out for me
From the distance (it) gave me shivers

Oh will there be a tomorrow?
I'm losing my mind, full of sorrow

Night and rain
They were calling you
Night and rain
Breaking the spell
Night and rain
Hear they're calling you
Night and rain
Lucifer's opening Hell

We are the innocent
Hunted by the mystic force
The dragonlords are rising from the darkness

Touching your skin
This game we will never win
The unbroken will turned to sadeness

Oh will there be a tomorrow?
I'm losing my mind, full of sorrow

Night and rain
They were calling you
Night and rain
Breaking the spell
Night and rain
Hear they're calling you
Night and rain
Lucifer's opening Hell

Will there be a tomorrow?
I'm losing my mind, full of sorrow

Night and rain
They were calling (you)
Night and rain
Breaking the spell
Night and rain
Hear they're calling (you)
Night and rain
I feel the
Night and rain
Calling you, calling you (there)
Night and rain
Night and rain
Night and rain
I feel the
Night and rain
5. The Masquerade Ball (10:40)
See the Sun over the rainbow
And the rain comes falling down
Holy nights, the spirit of the temple
They appeared to take the crown

Evil shadows were passing through the air
No one knows if he is there

The bell strikes midnight, the mist begins to rise
The master's calling your name
Soul to soul, the last light of eternity
Lost fools for the game

Winged assassin with power and his grace
The evil force arisen from the grave

It's the Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
There is no tomorrow
On the other side
The Masquerade Ball

Climb up to the stars
Through the winds of wonder
The evil's in despair
The Masquerade Ball

Dark shadows of the Moon
The Sun had turned to black
Evil eyes are ready to attack

Dust to dust, the mist was fading
The earls have just arrived
Who ever knows who will survive

Get away from the demon dance
And lock on the doors
No place for the holy this midnight romance
No prayers on the floor

It's the Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
There is no tomorrow
On the other side
The Masquerade Ball

Climb up to the stars
Through the winds of wonder
The evil's in despair

The Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
There is no tomorrow
On the other side
The Masquerade Ball
The Masquerade Ball
Yeeeah
The Masquerade Ball

It's the Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
There is no tomorrow
On the other side
The Masquerade Ball

Climb up to the stars
Through the winds of wonder
The evil's in despair

On and on they sailed away
With fire in their eyes
The burning heat began to rise

Eye to eye with broken chains
They left the house of black
Escaping from final attack

Get away from the demon dance
And lock on the doors
No place for the holy this midnight romance
No prayers on the floor

It's the Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
There is no tomorrow
On the other side
The Masquerade Ball

Climb up to the stars
Through the winds of wonder
The evil's in despair

The Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
There is no tomorrow
On the other side
The Masquerade Ball

Climb up to the stars
Through the winds of wonder
The evil's in despair

The Masquerade Ball
See the wizard fly
The Masquerade Ball
Yeeeah
See'em fly

Evil's in despair
The Masquerade Ball

On and on they sailed away
With fire in their eyes
The burning heat began to rise

On and on they climbed
Through the wind (they ...)
(But soon they turned to ...)

(See the wizard ...)
6. Tear Down the Walls (5:40)
Are we hypnotised
Seeing shadows in the air
The world of lost horizons
The devil's in despair

Are we strong enough
To climb up to the sky
The wizard of the holy
Is strong enough to fly

The Moon was rising
With his power shining bright
The heat from down under
From the curse that wasn't right
Not right

Tear down the walls
As the Moon eclipsed the Sun
Tear down the walls
The temple's left undone
Tear down the walls
Lonely on the run
Tear down the walls
Lightning strikes the Sun
Tear down the walls

Can we open our ears
And hear the voices are calling
Calling out your name
It's not the end of the game

Are we fools enough
To cut the edge of a rainbow
(As) we're running out of time
Are we evil or divine?

The Moon was rising
With his power shining bright
The heat from down under
From the curse that wasn't right
Not right

Tear down the walls
As the Moon eclipsed the Sun
Tear down the walls
The temple's left undone
Tear down the walls
Lonely on the run
Tear down the walls
Lightning strikes the Sun
Tear down the walls

Yeeeah
Tear down the walls
As the Moon eclipsed the Sun
Tear down the walls
The temple's left undone
Tear down the walls
Lonely on the run
Tear down the walls
Lightning strikes the Sun
Tear down the walls

Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Lonely on the run
Oooh uoooh yeeeah
Tear down the walls
7. The Line (7:39)
Alone at night
In the cold and windy city
When the candle fades away

Another morning
And the Sun's shining pretty
You can watch the children play

(But) there's a hole in the sky
And it cries for you and I
And We can't find the reason for calling

(But) there's a new place to see
Another world for you and me
(And) one can hear the bell which will be tolling
Tolling

They crossed the line
See the light, it shines
They crossed the line
Heaven or Hell, who will decide?

What's coming after
The curse of wrath and agony
Oh Lord, please help us find our way

(We) tried to get out
Of the last light of eternity
But we couldn't get away

(But) there's a hole in the sky
(When) it cries for you and I
(When) we can't find the reason for dreaming

(But) there's a new place to see
Another world for you and me
(And) one can hear the bell which will be tolling

They crossed the line
See the light, it shines
They crossed the line
Heaven or Hell, who will decide?

Oooh, oooh!
Oooh, oooh!
They crossed the line
They crossed the line

Touching the heaven
Burning in Hell
Cast away, cast away
Cast away the spell
Oooh, oooh, yeeeah!

They crossed the line
Can't you see the light shines
Cast away, cast away
Oooh, oooh, [they] crossed the line
8. Hot Wheels (4:54)
They're riding on since '72
All their life on the freeway
They have no fear for nothing at all
They're always doing it their way

Flying with the wind
Chromed steel and dressed in leather
Live to ride, ride to live
Too wild to be tamed forever
Yeah!

Hot wheels, riding on the highway
Hot wheels, 'coloured' riders of the storm
Hot wheels, always doing in their way
Hot wheels, no break from dusk till dawn
Hot wheels

All for one and one for all
The engine roars like thunder
The bike's filled up with gasoline
Exploding with it's power

Flying with the wind
Chromed steel and dressed in leather
(They) live to ride, ride to live
Too wild to ... forever

Hot wheels, riding on the highway
Hot wheels, 'coloured' riders of the storm
Hot wheels, always doing in their way
Hot wheels, no break from dusk till dawn
Hot wheels

Yeeeah!
Hot wheels, riding on the highway
Hot wheels, 'coloured' riders of the storm
Hot wheels, always doing in their way
Hot wheels, no break from dusk till dawn

Hot wheels, riding on the highway
Hot wheels, 'coloured' riders of the storm
Hot wheels, always doing in their way
Hot wheels, no break from dusk till dawn
(Hot wheels)

Hot wheels, all for one, one for all
Hot wheels, can you feel the thunder
(Hot wheels)
Yeah, ride to live
Hot wheels
9. The Temple of the Holy (7:42)
Gone with the wind and home is far away from me
There's no one way to see
Haunted by ghosts the evil force of mystery
No way out for you and me

The end of the time, they're the end of the line
(They're) searching for the stars they couldn't find
The end of the time, they're the end of the line
(They're) searching for the stars they couldn't find

Oh, how much longer will they pay
For the sins of yesterday

With their flesh and their bone from dusk until dawn
They are searching for the temple of the holy
Fading and gone on the wings of the storm
They found shelter in the temple of the holy

Don't touch the magic wall, the sign of the crystal ball
See their faces in the mirror
They're the legions of the damned from an unholy land
Bringing fear and reign of terror

The end of the time, (they're) the end of the line
Searching for the stars they couldn't find
The end of the time, (they're) the end of the line
Searching for the stars they couldn't find

Oh, how much longer will they pay
For the sins of yesterday

With their flesh and their bone from dusk until dawn
They are searching for the temple of the holy
Fading and gone on the wings of the storm
Finding shelter in the temple of the holy

Oh, how much longer will they pay
For the sins of yesterday

With their flesh and their bone from dusk until dawn
They are searching for the temple of the holy
Fading and gone on the wings of the storm
Finding shelter in the temple of the holy

With their flesh and their bone from dusk until dawn
They are searching for the temple of the holy
Fading and gone on the wings of the storm
Finding shelter in the temple of the holy
10. July Morning (9:58)
There I was on a July morning
I was looking for love
With the strength of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun

At the sound of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home
With the storm and the night behind me
And a road of my own

With the day
Came the resolution
I'll be looking for you
Oooh, oooh, oooh!

I was looking for love in the strangest places
(There) wasn't a stone that I left unturned
(I) must have tried more than a thousand faces
But not one was aware of the fire that burned

In my heart, in my mind, in my soul
Oooh, oooh, oooh!

In my heart, in my mind, in my soul
Oooh, oooh, oooh!
(Waw-waw) wa-waw, wa-waw, wa-waw, wa-waw
Oh, yeah!
Yeah! In my soul!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Oooh!

There I was on a July morning
I was looking for love
With the strength of a new day dawning
And the beautiful sun

At the sound of the first bird singing
I was leaving for home
With the storm and the night behind me
And a road of my own

With the day
Came the resolution
I'll be looking for you
Oooh, oooh, oooh!
