The Final Requiem Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Final Requiem (3:53)
Like a ship on the ocean, trying to find the wind to her sails
You are lost in confusion, trapped by the walls of hate

Turn back the hands of time
Write your own destiny

Step into the fire, step into the light
The final requiem
The oath has been broken, you're one with the night
It's the final requiem

Though you walk in the shadows
Without a guiding light by your side
Never stray from the path that's before you
Or you will never survive

Turn back the hands of time
Write your own destiny

Step into the fire, step into the light
The final requiem
The oath has been broken, you're one with the night
It's the final requiem

The minutes seem like hours
When you're inside the dark
Trying to be free from sorrow
The foolish stare in your eyes
But don't you know that you're dead

Like a ship on the ocean, trying to find the wind to her sails
You are lost in confusion, trapped by the walls of hate

Turn back the hands of time
Write your own destiny

Step into the fire, step into the light
The final requiem
The oath has been broken, you're one with the night
It's the final requiem
2. Condemnation (4:03)
Hiding in the dark, afraid of the light
Impossible it seems, to make it through the day
Hunger takes its toll, my strength is fading fast
The scent of blood awakes my lust
The hunt has just begun

Roaming through the streets, searching aimlessly
Finding the ones down in misery
Victims stand in line, waiting to be reborn
Their past sins washed away by blood
Cleansing their souls

And soon the day will come, when you will rise
My precious angel
Condemned to a life in the shadows
Until the end of time

And soon the day will come, when you will rise
My precious angel
Condemned to a life in the shadows
Until the end of time
3. The Divine (4:19)
I call out to the enchantress why, why?
We have crossed the line between what's right and wrong
what's right and wrong

In the name of the one that stands alone
Through torture and pain
Comes a man with a million faces
We will never see him again

I scream out through the open window
I reach out into the light
I reach the sun set slowly but never fade away
My soul's divine

Left inside the hollow shell that's life and death
Together we can conquer anything, anywhere

In the name of the one that stands alone
Through torture and pain
Comes a man with a million faces
We will never see him again

I scream out through the open window
I reach out into the light
I reach the sun set slowly but never fade away
My soul's divine

When the time is right the answer lies before us
Nothing you can say or do will ever change our fate
Because we're all destined for a better cause
But sometimes we are satisfied, just staying alive

In the name of the one that stands alone
Through torture and pain
Comes a man with a million faces
We will never see him again

I scream out through the open window
I reach out into the light
I reach the sun set slowly but never fade away
My soul's divine
I scream out through the open window
I reach out into the light
I reach the sun set slowly but never fade away
4. Edge Of The World (5:19)
A journey without end, it seems like forever
We have walked alone
So maybe soon will know
Whatever future adventures lies ahead

Under the rainbow, beneath the sun
Tonight I wonder will all be undone
Unholy spirits shall seal our fate
Our cities burning with the flames of hate

Standing at the edge of the world, afraid to look down
To see what lies beyond the great horizon
And we all live on borrowed time fearing the end
We finally understand that nothing is forever

Tomorrow yesterday will seem like a fading
Flower a distant memory
And together we fight for what is right
But nothing can withhold the hands of time

Under the rainbow, beneath the sun
Tonight I wonder will all be undone
Unholy spirits shall seal our fate
Our cities burning with the flames of hate

Standing at the edge of the world, afraid to look down
To see what lies beyond the great horizon
And we all live on borrowed time fearing the end
We finally understand that nothing is forever

A journey without end, it seems like forever
We have walked alone
And together we fight for what is right
But nothing can withhold the hands of time

Under the rainbow, beneath the sun
Tonight I wonder will all be undone
Unholy spirits shall seal our fate
Our cities burning with the flames of hate

Standing at the edge of the world, afraid to look down
To see what lies beyond the great horizon
And we all live on borrowed time fearing the end
We finally understand that nothing is forever
5. Thirteen (4:41)
Once again you try, but again you fail
You feel the blood on your hands and all the tears you shed
The needle stings within seconds they're gone
A life so easily ended, but is this really right and not wrong

The illusion of a better world, without the pain of losing
Everything must come to an end
It's just a matter of time before we all have to go
A step further into the dawn of a new era
Into a world beyond

Now you hear them cry for the mercy of angels
Death comes like a distant shadow, a relief to ease their pain
And the outside world spins faster every day
You are all alone, trapped in misery
The struggle is never-ending

The illusion of a better world, without the pain of losing
Everything must come to an end
It's just a matter of time before we all have to go
A step further into the dawn of a new era
Into a world beyond

The illusion of a better world, without the pain of losing
Everything must come to an end
It's just a matter of time before we all have to go
A step further into the dawn of a new era
Into a world beyond
6. The Hide (4:59)
Another day in a life full of fear
You're screaming out your anguish
The sense of knowing the reaper is near
You captor walks beside

You are the only one for him
Until the end of time
You ignite the spark in his twisted mind
Just open up your eyes

She was still alive when they found her
Beaten blue from head to toe
Every bone in her precious body, brutally broken in two
There's no tomorrow if you're trapped inside the hide
Slowly you will die, waiting for the end of your life

You feel him breathing down your neck
The foul stench of a sick man
He beats you into obedience
He's impossible to escape from

You are the only one for him
Until the end of time
You ignite the spark in his twisted mind
Just open up your eyes

She was still alive when they found her
Beaten blue from head to toe
Every bone in her precious body, brutally broken in two
There's no tomorrow if you're trapped inside the hide
Slowly you will die, waiting for the end of your life

You are the only one for him
Until the end of time
You ignite the spark in his twisted mind
Just open up your eyes

She was still alive when they found her
Beaten blue from head to toe
Every bone in her precious body, brutally broken in two
There's no tomorrow if you're trapped inside the hide
Slowly you will die, waiting for the end of your life
7. Underworld (5:46)
When the sun sets the night embraces your soul
The demon in you mind comes alive
Dark shadows dancing on the walls all around you
No lack of imagination, this cannot be real

So take hold of this moment in time
It will forever be lost

Down in the underworld where thousands
Of souls will forever be burning
All creatures of the night watch them fade away
Back to the ancient times when mankind
Worshiped the forces of evil
The alliance with the great deceiver is dead and gone

The tortured spirits of murdered men never sleeps
Doomed to forever wander here on earth
Haunting dreams you wake up screaming
Soaked in you own sweat
No fear of the unknown, you try to tell yourself

So take hold of this moment in time
It will forever be lost

Down in the underworld where thousands
Of souls will forever be burning
All creatures of the night watch them fade away
Back to the ancient times when mankind
Worshiped the forces of evil
The alliance with the great deceiver is dead and gone

Down in the underworld where thousands
Of souls will forever be burning
All creatures of the night watch them fade away
Back to the ancient times when mankind
Worshiped the forces of evil
The alliance with the great deceiver is dead and gone
8. Spirit (4:07)
Four hundreds of years they have strived to be free
From oppressions of the enemy

Riding with the spirits, guiding their way
Through the magical mist that surrounds them

Living life as simple as it was meant to be
Standing tall fulfilling the prophecy

Riding with the spirits, guiding their way
Through the magical mist that surrounds them

In the fire they come alive
The soldiers of ancient time
Dancing inside the flames
Like angels in heaven

In the fire they come alive
The soldiers of ancient time
Dancing inside the flames
Like angels in heaven
9. Pagan Ritual (3:56)
Men all dressed in black, forming a circle around me
Alone I am standing there, naked, inside the ring of fire
Caught between two different worlds, hexed by a spell
Left somewhere in time
Drained of all my strength, I'm left here to die

I will walk alone
Into the shadows of my mind
Nightmares are coming true
There's no tomorrow

The lord of evil, awaits me at the altar
The shiny dagger in his hand, just waiting to strike
To pierce right through me
In a web of tangled dreams, eager to bite
The serpent lies waiting
It will soon just end, the eternal sleep

I will walk alone
Into the shadows of my mind
Nightmares are coming true
There's no tomorrow

I will walk alone
Into the shadows of my mind
Nightmares are coming true
There's no tomorrow
10. Seeds Of Evil (4:37)
In this empty space, all alone in here, am I dead or alive
Feel the terror surround me, I wish I had never been born
Looking up to the sky above, hoping for some change
But life is never that easy and there is no one else to blame

We have sown the seeds of evil in the cradle of all time
We walk towards judgment day
Without fear for the end of time

Down and out, kicked to the ground, no remorse, no repent
A twisted mind in a fragile soul a deadly combination
Catastrophic lessons in life, they all end in rage
A foolish step and it all will stop the final destination

We have sown the seeds of evil in the cradle of all time
We walk towards judgment day
Without fear for the end of time

Within the dying embers life will begin
A child born so innocent while darkness comes alive tonight

We have sown the seeds of evil in the cradle of all time
We walk towards judgment day
Without fear for the end of...
We have sown the seeds of evil in the cradle of all time
We walk towards judgment day
Without fear for the end of time
11. End Of The Line (3:59)
The winds of tomorrow, blowing hard today
I see the ruins of the world I used to know
I hear the liars, and their words of deceit
Never-ending stories of their false prophecies

One glory day our kingdom will come
When all the wars are gone
We have paid for the sins of yesterday
Our dreams will come true
At the end of the line

Standing in the ashes of a million lives
Dead just because they believed in someone else
Forever trusting, always let down
The time has come for us to make a stand

One glory day our kingdom will come
When all the wars are gone
We have paid for the sins of yesterday
Our dreams will come true
At the end of the line

Take back what's ours and to be free
There won't be any room for forged sympathy
No more denial those days are gone
We've already dug our own graves hundred times around

One glory day our kingdom will come
When all the wars are gone
We have paid for the sins of yesterday
Our dreams will come true
At the end of the line
12. Beyond The Lies (4:48)
We walk through the fields of insanity
And life it seems has passed you by
Dark open wounds, caressing your soul
Never ever sane again

In laughter, in sorrow, we share all of life's seasons
Together as one, we go to war
Killing, fighting, screaming, dying

To see beyond the lies
We reached the final step
The end of our misery
It is a slaughter of souls

This seems to be our destiny
Far away from our sacred lands
Fighting someone else's war
It is a sad excuse for a legacy

In laughter, in sorrow, we share all of life's seasons
Together as one, we go to war
Killing, fighting, screaming, dying

To see beyond the lies
We reached the final step
The end of our misery
It is a slaughter of souls

To see beyond the lies
We reached the final step
The end of our misery
It is a slaughter of souls
