Somewhere Far Beyond Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Time What Is Time (5:46)
When the moonchild is crying
And silence has broken
The darkest truth

The things she remembered
Had never been her own
Replicant or human
I know the way to show
What do I see
What will I find
Know the answer inside
It's your last step

Time what is time
I wish I knew how to tell you why
It hurts to know
Aren't we machines
Time what is time
Unlock the door
And see the truth
Then time is time again

[Whispering]
These dreams were never mine
It's cold inside
It's gone forever
The things he saw
Who can say what's wrong or right
The vision of a free life
His eyes had seen it all
For what
He's asking
The vision, vision, vision
I know it's all a lie
I'll remember the past life
And I'll remember time

[Lead: Andre]

What did I see
What have I done
God I knew the answers
When he felt so tired

Time what is time
Come lock the door don't let me in
I am the one your destiny
Time what is time
Reality - it hurts me so
When time is time again

[Solo: Andre]

Look into my eyes
Feel the fear just for a while
I'm a replicant and I love to live
Is it all over now
Only these years
I'll leave but I'm singing

Time what is time
He saw it clearly it's too late
It does not heal but it lets us forget
Time what is time
We'll never know
So don't take care
Then time is time again

Should I forget
The way I feel
God he knows how long I tried
Feel there is no reason to cry
I live my life
In fortune dreams forever
2. Journey Through the Dark (4:48)
Many songs I've written
About the things I saw
My inner soul's a wasteland
I can't run away from here
Try to find them
All the lost thoughts in my mind
I woke up on a hill
So many times before
Yesterday seems like a dream no more
Frozen memories laughing
They don't let me find the truth
Am I born to be a king
Or a jester of the fools

You're the mystical old bard
on your journey through the dark
Mystical old bard
Your journey through the dark

I can't remember my name
I never knew how to find my home
I can't remember my name
come tell me when will it end
I'm the chosen one
To perform all these things
But not for me
In illusions and reality
I'm on my journey through the dark
I'm on my journey through the dark

Mystical old bard
On your journey through the dark
Mystical old bard
Your journey through the dark

[Solo: Andre]

I can't remember
Will I ever find myself
The distance is growing
My hope has gone away
A flash of light but nothing changes
When will it end
Which part of me remains

[Lead: Andre]

Soon I'll be back
On my ferryboat of tales
Where oblivion reigns
It will take all of me
Mystical old bard
On your journey through the dark
Mystical old bard
Your journey through the dark
3. Black Chamber (0:58)
I am lost in the black chamber
There's no way to turn back
It takes me down forevermore
And death would be so sweet
I'm possessed by the old creature
Who has planned all
To take my soul
Too late for me
In my hands
It lies I thought
But I failed
Now he's in me

My soul is lost
In his black chamber

I'm gone
4. Theatre of Pain (4:17)
[Lead: Andre]

The giant's lost
And all around him
Destructed for what
They all knew what it meant
But they couldn't change it
Lord they had gone too far
Leave them alone

It's all gone
What is left behind
On a desert we called earth
When the last whale went away
Did they ever see the tears

Don't fear your last step
From the theatre of pain
And the children will love your singing
From the sea
The sea is calling
Now we've to leave it

The sea was clear
On the day I was stranded
Answers I'd known
To keep this all alive
But I can't change it
Forever

[Solo: Andre]

Now I'm gone
And it seems that life has never existed
So we left the dark and cold
All I left behind are my tears

Don't fear your last step
From the theatre of pain
And the children will love your singing
From the sea
The sea is calling
I hear them calling
5. The Quest for Tanelorn (5:57)
By the ruins he stands
And he's waiting for me
To enter Tanelorn
His paths seem strange
But they're always planned
Seldom he succeeds
About his own fate

[Lead: Andre]

He tries to conquer it
Again and again
But at last he's almost
A ruined man
Not a king or God
Who's searching for
A place called Tanelorn
Far beyond your dreams

[Lead: Andre]

On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn
He's waiting
He's waiting for me
He's waiting
He's waiting for me

[Lead: Kai]

Darkness falling down on me
Darkness - The eternal battle rises

I know the answers
Although they don't exist
I'm just a mortal illusion

On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn

[Solo: Kai]

So I'm his companion
Through space and through time
His eternal servant
He's calling me
So I must leave
To another life
To another world
Far beyond your dreams

[Lead: Kai]

To know the truth
Just for a while
He's longing for a place
Where he can find himself
Deliverance
It could be everywhere
How can he find
He's waiting for me
And for you
Tanelorn

On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
On our quest for Tanelorn
We lose our way
[Refrain leads by Kai]
6. Ashes to Ashes (6:00)
Taste the poison
Feel that this is life
Hallowed be the game
Of life and innocence
God's waiting for him
Join us at the road to fate
There are two paths
Feel the pain
Which steps into his life
Agony
He'll be crucified
Death awaits
Knocking at his door
Agony
Leave him
The clock will strike the end
Hell or heaven
Reflect and fade away

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Like a candle light that fades
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
When the life clock strikes you obey
Time isn't here to stay
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
A light shows the right way

[Lead: Andre]

Morning is whispering in my head
Too late to say goodbye
Too late
The last breath's done
Deliverance and all
He's born to find his end
I am the one
The one who's calling
Obey my call to the cemetery
And don't be afraid
To step into the dark
Be sure that my voice
will take you home

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Like a candle light that fades
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
When the life clock strikes you obey
Time isn't here to stay
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

[Solo: Andre]

No hope he'd waited so long
This can't be God's will
He surrendered long ago
There was no real chance
Ashes to ashes, and dust will be dust
Ashes to ashes, you all will be dust again

[Lead: Andre]

The clock has struck the end
Up to heaven
Reflexions fade away

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Like a candle light that fades
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
When the life clock strikes you obey
Time isn't here to stay
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Light shows the right way

Taste the poison
Feel that this is life
Hallowed be the game!
7. The Bard's Song - In the Forest (3:10)
Now you all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bards' song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here
Now the bard songs are over
And it's time to leave
No one should ask you for the name
Of the one
Who tells the story

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known
And you're not alone
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain
They all will remain

In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarfs and men
And elves
Come close your eyes
You can see them too
8. The Bard's Song - The Hobbit (3:54)
Out in the distance
There's so much gold
The treasure that I've found
Is more than enough
Far to the hill we've to go
Over the mountains and seas
To the old hill
Where the old dragon sleeps
Blind in the dark dungeon's night
So God please take me away from here
And Gollum shows the way right out

[Solo: Andre]

I'm alive

The dying dragon brought trouble and pain
And horror to the halls of stone
I'll take the mighty stone
And leave the dwarfs behind
Ice and fire and forest we passed
And horror in the halls of stone

Trolls in the dark
The dawn took them all
Caught in the wood
By the wooden king's men
But now I'm alone
'Cause I've made up my mind
By the spell of gold

[Lead: Andre]

The king under the mountain
Will risk the great war
Oh what a fool
He's losing control
So I am trying to find a way
Blind in the dark dungeon's night
Then darkness comes from the northern side
And Thorin clears his mind
9. The Piper's Calling (0:59)
10. Somewhere Far Beyond (7:30)
I came from far
Beyond your reality
The ocean of time
It's the odyssey of mine
I am the narrator
And now I'll tell you
Where I've been
And what I saw
And how it ends

[Lead: Andre]

Welcome to the wasteland
In a world that's turning faster
Where I'm alone for a while

[Lead: Andre]

It's turning faster
Away from light straight to the dark
The march of time it has begun
I'm caught in an ancient dream so bright
And then the march of time begins

The man in black he waits
Behind this last task
It's full of pain
To sacrifice the only son
The legions of the lost
Wait in the old mine
They try to stop me
The battle it has begun

So I'm not afraid
To walk down the wasteland
I'm so alone on my way
And I don't fear that dusty godforsaken path
Somewhere far beyond

Somewhere far beyond
The march of time it has begun
Somewhere far beyond your reality
And then the march of time begins

[Lead: Andre]

Look at my soul
And behind
There are some thins
I've to hide from you
I'm following the black man
I'm losing control
And I don't care
What's happening to the boy

Welcome to a new world
One more step to the dark tower
And my whole body's in flames
I'm looking for
Those healing things to be prepared
The march of time it has begun
I'm caught in a prisoner's dirty life
And then the march of time begins

The prisoner did bring the healing spell
The queen of shadows found herself in pain
And death brings answers to us all

What will I find
When the dark tower appears
Will it be the end
Or just a new quest after all
I am the narrator
And now I'll tell you
Where I'd been
And what I saw
And how it ends

[Solo: Andre]

Somewhere far beyond
The march of time it has begun
Somewhere far beyond your reality
And then the march of time...
Somewhere far beyond
The march of time it has begun
Somewhere far beyond your reality
And then the march of time begins

Look around and see
The world is turning fast
Faster day by day
Somewhere far beyond
I'll try to change it
If I can - Somewhere far beyond
There's only one chance
And it lies - Somewhere far beyond
Somewhere far beyond
The march of time it has begun
The march of time it has begun
