Beyond the Gates Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Hermit
1. Fields of Yesterday
The passage is open they've unlocked the cage
The circle is broken beware
Along came the thunder, the wind and the rage
A vortex of pleasure and pain

The spectre within us is trying to come across
Pray, pray
A passage door, wide open
So step inside, don't be afraid
Voices calling
We're falling throught time and space

See what you want to see, be free
Never fear, the end is near
When your eyes are shut you'll see
The fields of yesterday

Inside the circle, something's not right
Dead silence is filling the air
Shivering, shaking. Hands holding tight
I think it's the end of the line

The spectre within us our contact link across
Stay, stay
So why won't you speak to us now
Why are you here, tell us why
Shadows falling
We are trapped in the circle of lies

See what you want to see, be free
Never fear, the end is near
When your eyes are shut you'll see
The fields of yesterday

Now the circle must be closed
Leave me here leave me alone

See what you want to see, be free
Never fear, the end is near
When your eyes are shut you'll see
The fields of yesterday
2. Soul Collector
I move across the earth
Dark shadows call my name
I am the chosen one, I am insane

I am your darkest fear
Your sinner and your saint
Through all eternity I set my sail

You cannot sleep at night
Still haunted, feel the fright
Your final revelation

Cold sweat, burning fear
You know the end is near
The ruler of the wastelands

Wielding the axe
Behold the bloodstains on the floor
Wielding the axe
I am the soul collector

Inside a raging storm
My spirit was reborn
Thy sins, the spark to feed my flames

You feel the cold winds below
I'm breathing down your neck
Countdown, I'm ready to attack

Reflections from the blade
Your screams begin to fade
I'll bring you salvation

Red hot, burning steel
The powers that I feel
The cure for my damnation

Wielding the axe
Behold the bloodstains on the floor
Wielding the axe
I am the soul collector
3. Red Light
When shadows fall in the twilight zone
The spirits will arise
The lord of darkness, descends my soul
With slander, tainted lies

Walking on water, visions fading to black
As the flames start to clobber my back
In this fiery blaze I am feeling no pain
I will arise and walk the earth again

Running through the red light
Running for your life
Alone in the dark night
Running through the red light
Running for your life

The lion roar in the darkest hour
Redeem his tortured soul
You had your eyes on eternity
Now death will take its toll

You dangle in agony, you fight for your breath
As the spectre is wrenching your neck
When the whole world awakens from its sombre sleep
You will be gone and your soul's mine to keep

Running through the red light
Running for your life
The cause of your magic

Running through the red light
Running for your life
Through the red light
4. Back to Hell
Rising from the ashes
Stroming through the gates
The riders of the apocalypse fate

Sounding like the thunder
At the speed of light
The troops of the danmed will arise

They're coming from above, descending down below
In shackles the dreams keep haunting
But don't you turn away, from the light of day
Then everything fades to black

Go back to Hell

The dawning of a new world
Eternal life in pain
Ashes to ashes, regain

Shadows coming closer
You begin to scream
Sound asleep, controlling your dreams

We had to watch them die, nothing we could do
Our hands were in chains, we're bleeding
Now open up your eyes, before they say goodbye
And everything fades to black

Go back to Hell
5. Beyond the Gates
She told me to wait
Now I'm alone outside the gate
My eyes are bleeding visions fade away

The sun came to late
Time is here to seal my fate
In pain inside the purgatory flames

Now open gate let me in, let me stay
I'm turning away from the light of the day

I'll never go back, no I never will return
The flames are burning still inside my soul
Inside my soul

In a time were I was young, at a place of innocence
She stood there all alone, a devil in disguise
Inside a raging storm, my mind was set at ease
She said I was the one, all she said was simple lies

Behind these walls, nothing will remain
Madness and rage, oh I'm turning insane?

Beyond the gates
Beyond the gates of Hell

Tormented by her eyes, my life was in her hands
Just a puppet on a string, read to give in
I believe that after life, my spirit will live on
In a world, for me unknow, in a world still free from sin

Somewhere beyond the flames are burning still
Between death and life, it is a destiny's will

Beyond the gates
Beyond the gates of Hell

Heaven or Hell, there's a thin line between
Inside this inferno, where no one can win

Beyond the gates
Beyond the gates of Hell
6. The Key
In a world of eternal darkness
At a place of long lost innocence
They obey someone else's master
They're just puppets on a broken string

In a time of undying fury
This creation is bound to fall
Down in hell, there's no gold, no glory
Hear the children as they start to pray

Here the voices of anger screaming
Please unlock these chains
We beg you, have mercy
We will cede you
The key to the undying world

Sombre days, yet a cryptic kingdom
Nothing lives, nothing breathes no more
All their lives they have reached for heaven
In silent prayers, they have lost their fear

They will arise from severe oppression
Out of the ashes they will rise once more
And then the light will prevail the darkness
Raise the flag and let us close this door

Here the voices of anger screaming
Please unlock these chains
We beg you, have mercy
We will cede you
The key to the undying world
7. Garden of Evil
Descend from heaven
An angel in black
The outcast of evil
Sent to reign, enslave the human race

His will is done, they stole the sun
Left us to die
How could it be we couldn't see?
The warning signs
No time lose, we have to choose
To live or to die
A total eclipse of our minds

The end is near, we must be going
Time will tell, descending down to Hell

In the garden of evil the sun will arise
When the last one survivor has killed the unborn child
In the garden of evil the innocent dies
Let us summon the spirits, the call of the wild

They came out of nowhere
In darkness and pain
They came with a reason
To kill the light and seize the soothing rain

Behold the light, behold the skies
It fades away
How can it be, when we are free
We cannot stay
Don't turn around, don't make a sound
The time has come
The rivers turning red, pray for the sun

The end is near, we must be going
Time will tell, descending down to Hell

In the garden of evil the sun will arise
When the last one survivor has killed the unborn child
In the garden of evil the innocent dies
Let us summon the spirits, the call of the wild
8. Merciless
The night is calling, vicious creatures all around
Moonlight shadows moving fast, beware don't make a sound
I am falling, into a void and I don't know
What awaits me beyond the point where no one dares to go

What do I see when I gaze into the fire
This burning pain, please make it go away

Do you hear me
In my dreams I am possessed
Can you tell me
If God is merciless?

Hear the thunder, burn like fire in the rain
The witching hour, calling me screaming out my name

Nothing to lose, I am drowning in the river
All my fears are staring back at me

Do you hear me
In my dreams I am possessed
Can you tell me
If God is merciless?

Do you hear me
In my dreams I am possessed
Can you tell me
If God is merciless?
9. Silent Cries
How can I take on this mission?
That I've been told to do
My hands are tied, I am crucified
I'm a stranger in a strange land

So now I'm feeling the pressure
It's boiling up inside
Where hatred only grows stronger
Comes a man, a beast, a killing machine

And visions that are haunting me
Through my blind eyes I still can see
The mission has to be done

Silent cries, the spirit dies
By the hands of the innocent
Before blue skies will fade to black

On a darkened horizon
The clouds are closing in
When skies are fading to black again
Hold your breath, I'm ready to attack

So now I'm caught in the action
There's nothing left to do
I fear the end coming nearer
Pull the trigger, now the curtain's closed

And all is coming back to me
Through open eyes I cannot see
The mission had to be done

Silent cries, the spirit dies
By the hands of the innocent
Before blue skies will fade to black

Silent cries, the spirit dies
Wash my hands of the innocent
I close my eyes and say goodbye
10. Dreams
When the night comes down
And I'm feeling cold
Shadows are moving around

I've been here before
Where the roads lead to nowhere
Please don't make a sound

Up from the gutter thay will rise
With fiery eyes
And when the dungeon's calling
You'll hear my silent cries

They've been chasing my dreams
Running down the boulevard
I never thought I'd see the day
When the night is coming down, I pray

I am lost in a maze
Of stolen dreams
Lossing track of the time

Nothing here but screams
And the walls coming closer
Crawling down my spine

Temptations lead me far beyond
The other side
I fear the end is coming
There's no place to hide

They've been chasing my dreams
Running down the boulevard
I never thought I'd see the day

What's left of my dreams?
In this dusk embracing scene
I never thought I'd live to see
When the day is turning, it's back on me
11. Signs
Bloodstains on the floor
Distant screams across the hall
Behind every door waits death and sorrow

In this evil nest
Life is put up to a test
That we must take or there is no tomorrow

Signs, written on the sky
Telling all but lies
For me it's do or die...die
Signs, in the dead of night
Turning darkness to light
Making wrong seem right

Creatures of the night
Waiting for the unborn child
To arrive and lead them through the darkness

Rivers turning red
Feeding powers to the dead
Immortality, their final cares

Signs, written on the sky
Telling all but lies
For me it's do or die...die
Signs, in the dead of night
Turning darkness to light
Making wrong seem right

Standing on my own
Waiting for the newborn day
My eyes are open wide
I'm resurrected

Signs, written on the sky
Telling all but lies
For me it's do or die...die
Signs, in the dead of night
Turning darkness to light
Making wrong seem right
12. Forever Ends
I see you comin', lookin' shiny and new
Just like a bullet in a brand new gun
You are the pony on a merry-go-round
All painted up and you're so ready to run

I feel the lightning hanging over the hill
And then I watch you on your rainbow ride
I hear you comin' from the top of the world
And you are beggin' me to be by your side again

No, not me this time I'm gonna be strong
No, not we this time you're all on your own

It's a leap of faith that I just can't make
Something' that I won't believe in again
And it's killin' me but it's got to be
This is where our forever ends

You say forever like you know what it is
And then you show me that you don't have a clue
There's still some love in me that let's me forgive
But I will guarantee that I am so over you, you know

No, not me this time I'm gonna be strong
No, not we this time you're all on your own

It's a leap of faith that I just can't make
Something' that I won't believe in again
And it's killin' me but it's got to be
This is where our forever ends

Watching as dreams turn into smoke
In your hands they slip away
Beating that love just like a drum
You are the child with all the games you play

No, not me this time I'm gonna be strong
No, not we this time you're all on your own

It's a leap of faith that I just can't make
Something' that I won't believe in again
And it's killin' me but it's got to be
This is where our forever ends
