(9)
Submitted by level DevilDoll       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Traveler in Time (6:02)
The Morning Sun of Dune
The Morning Sun of Dune

[lead: Andre]

The holy war's
waiting for
the morning sun [3x]
The morning sun of Dune
there's no tomorrow
the apparation of this land and it's dream
makes me feel I've seen it before
I can taste there's life
everywhere you can find
in the desert of my life
I see it again and again

[lead: Andre]

And again, again, again, again
dark tales have brought the Dijahd
like whispering echos in the wind
and I'm a million miles from home

[Ref:]
Traveler in time
knowing that there's no rhyme

[lead: Andre]

The morning sun is near
first light of dawn is here
the morning sun is near again
The Fremen sing that
their kingdom will come
and I'm the leading one
battlefields on our crusade
filled with Sardokaurs
killing machines crying
in raising fear they're hiding
Where do we go now?
So where is the way?
When I'm a million miles from home

[Ref]

[solo: Andre]

The morning sun I feel
all pain and sorrow
the apparition of my words in these days
makes me feel I've told them before
all my plans will come true
I'll control destiny
in the desert of my life
I've seen it again and again

[lead: Andre]

By my dreams I must find the way
to stop the raging war
I've to choose now
I will leave
my body and see
and time will stand still
when I have to leave
my body and find
a way back to the world I love
when I'm a million miles from home

[Ref]

[lead: Andre]
2. Welcome to Dying (4:50)
Close to insanity
beyond the realms I've been
at darkest places
I'm crying
"The dragon flies"

[lead: Andre]

Something savage
is yearning for me
I'm waiting afraid for the night
what will be
I've lost myself
a few days ago
it's touching my soul
and a vision of past dreams comes true

[Ref:]
Welcome to dying
I don't let it out
Welcome to dying
Look to the mirror it shows what I am
Welcome to dying
This town must burn now
Welcome to dying
Can't you see the dragon's seed bears in me
the one who's been before

many times I terrorized this town
many times and here I start again
now I'm stronger and so cold
cold as ice
returning is my destiny
now I feel it's growing up in me
now I feel it's burning deep in me
I'm not what I was before
could I stop this dream
I'm a stranger to myself
and I cannot control

[Ref:]
Welcome to dying
I don't let it out
Welcome to dying
Look to the mirror it shows what I am
Welcome to dying
Can't you see the dragon's seed bears in me
Welcome to dying
The dragon's breath I don't let it out

[solo: Andre]

I'm a savage
it's too late for me
the other side's taking control and I know
there's one way I can walk alone
or the dragon will fly
and a growing fear's all that I feel

[Rep. 1st ref.]

Welcome to dying [6x]
Can't you see the dragon's seed bears in me

[lead: Andre]

Spread my wings and fly away
I spread my wings and fly away
I spread my wings and fly away
3. Weird Dreams (1:22)
instrumental
4. Lord of the Rings (3:18)
There are signs on the ring which make me feel so down
there's one to enslave all rings to find them all in time
and drive them into darkness
forever they'll be bound

Three for the Kings of the elves high in light
nine to the mortal which cry

[solo: Markus]

[Ref (x2):]
Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow down and I walk to the hill

and there's no way out
Mordor
dark land under Sauron's spell
threatened a long time
threatened a long time
Seven rings to the gnomes in their halls made of stone
into the valley
I feel down
One ring for the dark lord's hand sitting on his throne
in the land so dark where I've to go

[solo: Markus]

[Ref:]

Lord of the rings
5. Goodbye My Friend (5:36)
Who can tell me who I am
who I am my friend
I'm an Alien so they say
a risk to everyone
No - Tell me what do they see
No - Tell me what do they feel
No - Tell me what do they fear
No - Tell me what do they see
I'm a dwarf but I know more than you
and I'm a key to a better life
from terror I could escape
but I need your helping hand
so far from home where I'm left alone
Did you hear my crying?
Did you hear my crying?

[Ref:]
Goodbye my friend
I found you at the end
I say Goodbye to all
Goodbye my friend
thanks for your helping hand
I say Goodbye to all my cries
just say Goodbye

[lead Andre]

No returning nevermore
No returning nevermore

[lead Andre]

And I'll remember
Communication to you is so strange
You trust to no one no warmths reach your heart
to you I'm the stranger but you're strange to me
You destruct all what is unknown to you
We are together now
and don't you know I'll come back again
I must go now

[Ref:] Goodbye...

[Solo Andre]

I will go home now
I will go home now
much too long I'm forced to stay
in visions I see
so dark and so deep
mankind will destruct all life
See you again I hope I will
see you again at the end?
My tortured soul can't forget the pain
now I find my way back
I WILL GO HOME NOW
I WILL GO HOME NOW

[Ref:] Goodbye...

[lead Andre]

[2nd scream by Kai]
6. Lost in the Twilight Hall (6:02)
Awaiting my last breath
the mirror calls my name
it's showing me the way
into the dark
the bridge appears
I jump into the dark side
and hear the voice it's cold as ice
"Welcome to reality"
Where am I now?
Darkness surrounds
can't go forward
can't go back
[Kai:] I see planets dying
[Hansi:] I fall into the light
[K:] a new universe awakens
[H:] I'm a Traveler in Time
[K:] Pray for the light
[H:] Where's the key
[K:] To the gate
[H/K:] of a new life - no
[H:] I search for deliverance
[K:] But I cannot find

[lead Andre]

[Ref:]
Look behind the mirror
I'm lost in the twilight hall
once I'll be back for a moment in time
that's when the mirror's falling down

[lead Andre]

Take me away
from the place I've been
to another life
in another world
a sign of life
surrounds me now
the bridge appears in the dark
I'm free
I fly alone
leaving this darkness now, forever?
the memories of children
and the wisdom of many lifes
burns deep in me
Where will the light go to?
Where will the light go to?
Is this deliverance?
Is it the end?

[Ref:] Look...

[solo Andre]

I'm back there's a new chance for me
and all my memories are gone
I can feel what's happening to me
and the mirror will burst

[Ref:] Look... [2x]

[lead Andre]
7. Tommyknockers (5:13)
[lead Andre]

She's opening her eyes
to find the thing
by a touch she's lost
it's waiting for her a long time
the kingdom's lost
cause there's one nail missing
playing with fire
turn of the light
and she'll fall down
playing with her life
but she can't leave it
there's one rhyme in her brain

[lead Andre]

[Ref:]
Oh, last night and the night before
Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers
knocked at your back door
Tommyknockers

[lead Andre]

The pain in my head
the cycle awakes
I'm on my way to Oz
I want to drink and she wants to dig
she's in trouble oh I know
there's something going wrong
Tommyknockers on their way
What's up in "Leighton street"?

[Ref:]
Oh, last night and the night before
Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers
knocked at your back door

[lead Andre]

I'm the hero, I'm back
with weapons and with magic spells
I'll seddle every task
an old, ill and drunken guy

[lead Andre]

The moon is full of blood
I've found her not, not far from home
I should better get away from here
she's on her way to be another one
playing with fire
she can read my thoughts
it's too late
playing with her life
Tommyknockers brought her trouble

[solo Andre]

The ship in the earth I touch
a vibration is filling me
and music is in my head
nose is bleeding
and my fall down
filled me with pain
you'll be like a Tommyknocker
I'll be like you
but there's something going wrong
I read it in your face

[Ref:]
Oh, last night and the night before
Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers
knocked at your back door
Tommyknockers knocked at your back door
Tommyknockers knocked at your back door
8. Altair 4 (2:27)
At Hilly's show
they didn't know
that the Ending of "Being" is near
I can feel their voices
the old man cries
"Please save the boy
he's caught in a world far behind
from home"
Monster Anne is crying out
"Feel my pain I can't escape"
Bad chances for me

[Ref:]
Altair 4 [3x]
chosen by their whispering words
What is left behind?
When purple colors turn to black
Can you feel it?
Is there time?
Can you see it?
Is there life?
"Fly away and dream"
9. The Last Candle (6:02)
Guardian, Guardian, Guardian of the Blind [4x]
Have you forgotten him

[lead Andre]

Far from the land
where the sun is born
down in the wood "Caladon"
Do you know that place
where the light is never seen
and all hopes are turned
by the final cry
Turned to Stone [4x]

[lead Andre]

Whispering tunes in the wind
all hopes are gone with the night
when the old man will never come back
remembre his words and his songs
And we see the raven flying in the distance
but no wizard's singing his song

[Ref:]
Somebodies out in the night
I fly in time
the last candle will burn
there's hope for everyone
when the last candle burns high
oh it's time for life

[lead Andre]

The elves and gnoms have to hide
when the moon is showing it's face
and raging orcs will set their traps
and all forests will burn
they hate green trees
and love the dark
they don't understand
that they're caught and left alone
they feel the magic in the wind
they just fear the old man's song

[solo Kai]

[Ref:]
Somebodies...

[lead Andre]

Corrupted old gnom
betrayer of all
you know so much about all
what is your price?

[GNOM:]
"Too much, too much
you cannot pay with your silver and your gold
there's just a little chance to save the wizard's life
there's just a little chance for all you fools
now pay"

[lead Andre]

And so I walk across the land
and hope to hear the wizard's song

[Ref:]
Somebodies... [2x]

[Outro:]
Somebodies out there
I feel there's somebody
Somebodies out there
I feel there's somebody
