A Twist in the Myth Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. This Will Never End (5:07)
Once upon a time
No more words to say
Find me in the circle
Find me in the end

I am the soul collector
Dressed in ebony,
There are no rules
But only one

There's someone young sister,
Caught in the border
Let's get in contact
By the laws of mine

I have told
That this will never end (this will never end)
Things go on
But nothing will last,
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it.
In distant shores of grief
It's over now!

Far out in space
I ride on,
Time is chasing us all,
It's not quite how it seems,
It's just a dream.

I don't believe
In a soul out of god
It's just twisted!
Fellow
You do not understand.

Each single breath inspires
you to come to an end - expire.

Rise up my sister
Let's cross the border,
Reveal the secret
One more soul to burn

I have told
That this will never end (this will never end)
Things go on
But nothing will last,
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it.
In distant shores of grief
It's over now!

Something I'm close to,
something left to do
Draw near and prove yourself for brightening
Prepare yourself, don't wait for me,
Expect the day when I come

You have reached out for a while,
You may feel (down),
There's a wreck there, don't turn your eyes

Don't visions bleak,
And its colour's black,
Oh far beyond there is a star in dying sun

I have told
That this will never end (this will never end)
Things go on
But nothing will last,
Only the fool in me believes
There is sense in it.
In distant shores of grief
It's over now!
2. Otherland (5:14)
They rule the land
They're in command
They hold all the strings in hand
They are invisible
Out of sight
They've designed
A secret place
To play their games
A world, they're in control
Divine law
Divine law
Be aware
Now
Mind your steps
We are uninvited guests,
They may find and catch us
Don't forget
Do what I say
Now connect
Don't even ask
Until we're out of it
Everything's at highest stake
Come take a look
We are in
Take a breath
But don't forget
It isn't real
It isn't true
An illusion
Nothing more

You're a part of the game
You're a slave to the grind
Oblivion
Is your key to the Otherland
You're a part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
By now you understand

You're a part of the game
You're a slave to the grind
Oblivion
You're welcome to the Otherland
You're a part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
By now you understand

We get closer
There's no better way
Lullaby Lane
Fade is on its way

The inner district
Is the place you need to know
It's overwhelming
So let's rest here for a while

Someone else appears
Silently
Watch me when I fall down
Everything seems real
Suddenly
Perfect simulation

Come take a look
Breathe it in
Artificial wonderlands
We are wandering around
Things shall vanish
They won't last
Now I know
You understand
This world is not true
Nothing is real
Nothing at all
It's bits and pieces
We walk through

You're a part of the game...

You're a part of the game
You're a slave to the grind
Oblivion
You've reached the promised land
You're a part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
Welcome to the Otherland

Wait
I can feel things are not right
Do not breathe
Don't look behind,
There's someone else
The observer

A trick of light
A fading line
The entrance is gone
We can't get out of it
We are slightly losing ground

Quick
It is time
We shall go
We better leave
And don't come back,
No way to run
Nowhere to hide
I fear
We're walking aimlessly

You're a part of the game...

You're a part of the game
You're a slave to the grind
Oblivion
Welcome to the Otherland
You're a part of the game
You're cursed
You're damned
You've reached
The promised land

You've crossed the line
You've reached the end
3. Turn the Page (4:16)
Hunter
We're here to praise your name,
Blazing sun
And a bitter death
You're a guardian
Cross the gate

Wake up it is a new dawning
Wake up the witches wait
For you
Remember the mirror
When she looked in
You were born in the void
In the middle of none
There was nobody else
There was nothing at all
Well sons and daughters
Joy's in the air
The horned one dies
Renewal
Everywhere

Turn the wheel again
A new beginning
Another end
Dried out the land needs blood
Inside the ring we're waiting
Give up yourself
Enter life

It's set out for you
Come turn the wheel
There is nothing to fear
Come turn the wheel
Come turn the page
Come turn the page

We do not believe in lies
Do not believe in lies
There is someone coming
There is someone coming
We hear a voice
From underworld
Now everything should move
When a new day begins

God of wind and god of rain
Turn the wheel
Oh you would better be aware
The mermaids
They will sing for you
The nymphs will bless the child

Reunite them
Sacrifice him

We will be with you until the end
Come move our hearts
We know
There is light beyond the dark

Dried out we cry for blood
Conquer your fear and join us
Come join us now
Time is right

It's set out for you...

A new beginning
Another end
The myth of life
You hold in your hand
We cry out
The land needs blood
The change of season
Praise to the newborn king

It's set out for you...
4. Fly (5:43)
Stop be quite now
Out with the light and
Then up and down it goes

Fly
Out with the light
There at the door
The inspiration I've looked for
The spirit of the youth appears

No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
It's make believe
Make believe

No one ever dares to speak
It's nothing else but fantasy
But one day
It all will come to life

Step out of line
And I'll teach you how to fly
Then away we'll go
Leave your mark land of mine
Leave your mark
In the land of mine

The second one to right
And then straight on
Until morning light

Stop be quite now
No irritation
No, not the slightest doubt

We got once
Quick - we better hurry
There from the road I sense
The end of fun gets near
Wonderful thoughts
And imaginations
These things will lift you up

What is it like?
You ask me, my dear
Will there be fairies
Or things to fear?
For fairies sake I'd say
You better come with me
So soon you'll see
Now up and down it goes
And round
Round and round and round

Praise
To my cleverness
They all follow me
All praise to innocence
That's everything it needs
Fly in
Fly out
They'll leave it all behind

No one ever dares to speak...

Life is a map
And it is quite confusing
The lights are up
Now let the play begin
She flies, she flies
Into the light she flies
No words like "Just" in mind
She's finding Neverland
There on the day she dies
Don't stop it now
She still enjoys the scene
Don't stop it now
Don't stop it now
Don't stop it now
Don't stop it now, now, now

No one ever dares to speak...
5. Carry the Blessed Home (4:03)
Pale faced, the innocent
Will drown in blood
Hurt and withdrawn.
Don't dare to steal my grief
In this haze of green and gold
He's gone.

Blind my eyes
And I still
Can see through the mist
To the very end
There I'll face
What I fear the most.
Blind my eyes
But it all doesn't matter
Right now.

I would bury my dead
And keep on
'Til the end
I won't give up
I won't give up
I'll turn
To the "red fields of none"
There's a grave
There's a rose.

Drift away
I can hear me say
Soon you all shall be free.
Carry the blessed home
No one's left here but me
And I'll sing out your name.

You call me insane, I know.
I've open my heart
And my soul to you son
So pale turns the innocence
And all I feel is pain.
Suddenly I understand
He's gone.

Blind my eyes and I still can see through the mist...

But it all doesn't matter
Right now

Carry the blessed home
No one's left here but me
And I'll sing out your name.
Driven insane?
No
What I feared the most
I have faced, and that's truth.
The grey faced is not innocent
Though I cry in dismay
I will follow decay
I'll move on
Is there anyone here
Who knows
How it feels to be wrong?

Blind my eyes and I still can see through the mist...

But it all doesn't matter
Right now

Matter right now
Matter right now
6. Another Stranger Me (4:36)
A seed of doubt
It exists
And it grows
A glimpse of life
From somewhere deep within
Awake and understand

Is there anyone else here?
Somebody screaming
Please help me
Let's find out now
That I am not dreaming
Welcome to my damnation
Here it comes the real me

I didn't know
I couldn't hear the answer
My mind was blank
I should have known
I hold it back but somehow
There is someone else
Another stranger me

Another stranger me

That's
When the ice
Will break away

I can't get out here
Anymore
Cause none of my keys
Fit the door
There's fear and anger
Hate and love
I must confess
It's out of hand

It's cynic
It's cynic
Still cynic
All my laughter

It's cynic
Just manic
It's cynic
All her laughter

If there's anyone in
It soon will be over
We'll burn out
Our soul's aflamed
And we're on our own now
Give up you cruel invasion
You're insane I'll show you

I didn't know...

Out and gone
Can't resist
Cold and sore
The bolt of pain
Keeps ripping through my head
I can take no more

Don't tell anyone else but I
Do not believe her
See hates me
Cloud my mind
She's a deceiver
I can feel cruel vibrations
Would you like to meet me?

I didn't know...

Another stranger me
7. Straight Through the Mirror (5:48)
Can you tell me
Is there any other way?
I cannot hide it
I have doubts
I'm not afraid to stay
I'm here
When the curtain falls.

Once I've touched the rainbow,
The man on the moon will appear.
I won't show fear

I turn to you, father death
I'm begging you
Please
Consider
You may have been wrong

Just close your eyes now
Just close your eyes now

The end's a miracle
Dream on if you dare
Straight through the mirror
We'll sail on through the air
There's magic everywhere
Just be aware
Wake up when the crow will call

There is no truth
There are no rules,
There's no plot here
It's twisted
We're still on course
My friend
Down to the abyss - Orcus lane
Shelter of your memories
Shelter of your pain

The mirror shows truth
Reveals what you are
A phoenix in flames
Arise from the ashes again
We're on our way now
We're on our way now

The end's a miracle
Dream on if you dare
Straight through the mirror
We'll sail on through the air

I feel
There is something wrong.
It's twisting and turning
When everything's burning
Awake
It's not safe

And I'm coming down to you again
We'll sail our miracles and then
If you don't mind
I'll sing a song
A song of lullaby this time

When you're asleep
I'm back again
The world of miracles in hand
If you don't mind
I'll sing a song
A sort of lullaby this time
We're on our way now
We're on our way now

The end's a miracle...

Wake up when the crow will call
8. Lionheart (4:15)
Just let me out of here
Speak to me
It all would be easier
I want to talk to you.
Who is that?
Do I hear a whisper?
Or do I hear a cry?
Across the brown land
The stumps of time
Oh turn the wheel and heal me
Since moonlight fade
I'm empty - heal me

I'm in search of the Lionheart
I am ashamed
I myself can't make it
Drown Ulysses
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out

Down below
I can't free my mind
Soon I will fade away
Down below
I can't free my mind
Soon I will fade away

"Tic Tac" is the message.
And the lunatic fears
He is no more

Speak to me
It all would be easier
While I'm passing by
Who's that?
Do I hear a whisper?
Or do I hear a cry?
Across the brown land
The ghosts arrive.

Pick up my bones and
Tell me
Is this the "Lake of Fire"?
Hell?
Please

I'm in search of the Lionheart
Nobody else
But the pure can save me.
Drown Ulysses
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out.

Ruins rule my memories
I can't recall the signs
Invite the dead
Then silence struck my mind

Silence is madness
"Tic Tac Tic Tactic"
Says the clock

Just let me out of here
Speak to me
It all would be easier
I want to talk to you
Hear me

Welcome to the sad place
And hand me what is mine
I'm the Theban prophet
The dead and blind

And from sea you'll feel me
Then you'll breath out gently
Leave me

I'm in search of the Lionheart...
9. Skalds & Shadows (3:13)
10. The Edge (4:27)
The world turned innocence
Can you hear me?
I confess I'm no redeemer
Can you hear me?
What shall I do?

I witnessed everything
Faith won't leave me
Mind my tongue
Faith don't leave me
Glow into words

This is the edge now
It's all we're living for
Rain on me
Love you will rain on me
And at the end I,
Boast in he cross
And now
Love reigns -
The god incarnation
I've shaped

Out there is a world on fire

Accursed the hanged one
Divine love for free
What a fateful night
And a grateful life
The choir echoes
"Every man his price"
Price
Light my agony
And crucify me
Void the law
At the ninth hour
Void the law
At the ninth hour

This is the edge now...

The world turns flesh again
Mystified are the final hours
No more fear in
No more fear in

Passover
The brook
Time it is at hand
Obscure the facts
A passion play

This is the edge now...

Hallowed be thy name
Hallowed be thy name
No more fear in

Come take a look
The old symbols they move
Wounds still bleed
That's creed
No more fear in
Can you see me?
Come take a look
At the depth of my soul
11. The New Order (4:49)
Would you open the door
Son I know the way
Soon a flickering light
Will grow
Leave it to me now.
Unchained
Unchained
Would you open the door
Enter the here and now
A new horizon
You'll rise you'll fall
And learn to live
Keep the faith - keep the pace

Your soul's like water but
Your fate is like the wind

Here is the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Do you remember
When we were moon knights?
We've slain the dragon
In the room
Now you see the future
Your quest the truth
How will it end up
I really do not know

This is no wonderland
Just keep in mind
Like a spell in certain books
Time will change it all

Away - oh please embrace me
Away - I will be gone

I'll take a look to see
What lies beyond
The break of dawn
Would you open the door
There is so much more to say

Keep the faith
Keep the pace.
Your soul's like water, but
Your fate is like the wind.

Here is the new order...

Will you remember the old rule?
Will you fulfill this sacrifice?
Done for the future
Space for the new
How will it end up?
That's up to you

You're on the bridge -
On the borderline
No matter how
You'll never ever leave it

Here is the new order...

Times will change

The soul's like water and
Like rain it will return

Live on in healing rain

The past shall find release
