Beyond the Shadows Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Sisslith
1. Night Knight (3:29)
He was a stranger from the mountains way up North
Darkness ruled the time
And sinners crushed their victims' souls
He took the chance to fight the evil by himself
The sounds of clatter made the mission to come real

Enter the valley, the valley of death
His predicted destiny was doomed to be before midnight
Enter the valley, the valley of death
Disaster and killing of raiders in light of the fires

He got the power from the faith in upper skies
That made the raiders weak and worthless, going down
He turned his back and saw the moonlight shining through
The time had come when noone feared the darkest troops

Enter the valley, the valley of death
Under the clouds at the sky,
they were watching the fall of the emperor
Enter the valley, the valley of death
Disaster and killing of raiders in light of the fires

Night Knight!

Night Knight!

Enter the valley, the valley of death
Under the clouds at the sky,
they were watching the fall of the emperor
Enter the valley, the valley of death
Disaster and killing of raiders in light of the fires
2. Child of the Night (3:55)
He came out through the fire
From the evil man's land
When darkness struck the hour
Our destiny was in his hand

Child of the night
Bringer of power and steel
Child of the night
Terror of the battlefield

His body's trembling with anger
Raise his fist to the sky
Catches eye on a stranger
Gave him hell and bloody die

Child of the night
To him you ain’t got no defense
Child of the night
Beware of his fearful revenge

Child of the night
Bringer of power and steel
Child of the night
Terror of the battlefield
3. Warrior (4:14)
From nowhere came a warrior
With a mission to complete
He was in possession of extreme power
That he'd use on everyone he'd meet

He came when you least expected him
He brought terror to the world
You could expect no mercy
As he swung his sword

He was cursed by the Gods
He had to fight 'til he died
But finally he beat the odds
And then he was free, free to rise

Nobody knew where he came from
No one knew his destiny
The story was told through the centuries
A piece of tragic history

He came when you least expected him
He brought terror to the world
You could expect no mercy
As he swung his sword
4. Power of the Evil (3:07)
Walk alone down the dark avenue
Scared of the midnight rendez-vous
See those faces looking at you
Caught in a trap, what you're gonna do?

Power of the evil
Danger in the night
Power of the evil
Danger in the night

Distorted faces reflecting fear
Crying out in despair
Now the bitter end is getting near
The last bit of hope has disappeared

Power of the evil
Danger in the night
Power of the evil
Danger in the night

Power of the evil
Danger in the night
Power of the evil
Danger in the...
In the...
In the night...
5. Reaper of Souls (2:44)
Walk through the night
To the Hall of the Mountain King
Deceiver of light
His wrath we all shall feel

It's the reaper of souls
Goin' deeper
Cold chills runnln' down my spine

At the end of the line
We'll gather with torch in hand
No mercy this time
Releaved by his strict command

It's the reaper of souls
Goin' deeper
Cold chills runnin' down my spine

There is no hope
The ending just isn't fair
We'll never cope
The reaper will never care

It's the reaper of souls
Goin' deeper
Cold chills runnin' down my spine
6. Into the Depths (3:24)
Let's all sit down, let me tell you a story
When truth came to town we were hit without warning
Souls fly high in the silence of the night
Crucified in the shadow of the burning light

Let's all get down to the roots of insanity
Bring me the key and I'll show you reality

Lost and found, now it's here for all to see
Destiny bound, noone ever breaks free

Into the depths I stare
Am I gonna see you there?
Into the depths I stare

Cursed by a spell then thrown into the fire
Screams of pain as the flames grow higher
Switchblade cut through the cold and misty air
Electrified, pushed into the electric chair

Into the depths I stare
Into the depths I stare
Into the depths I stare
Into the depths I stare

So I am running from the fire and the chain
My life is turning into chaos again

Into the depths I stare
Into the depths I stare
Into the depths I stare
Am I gonna end up there?
Into the depths I stare
Into the depths I stare
7. Secret Journey (3:02)
Right away, we're running Away!
Come on hear me baby when I say
It’s so insane, you drive me crazy
Be my lover baby, take my hand

It feels like the first time
We're getting way out of line

We're on a Secret Journey - You and I
We're on a Secret Journey - All the time

I can't believe, what you are trying to say
Are you finally giving up the fight
Take it easy, don't throw it away
I can't take another restless night

It feels like the first time
We're getting way out of line

We're on a Secret Journey - You and I
We're on a Secret Journey - All the time
All of the time, yeah!

We're on a Secret Journey - You and I
We're on a Secret Journey - All the time
8. Weeper Deeper (3:03)
Tell me where did you go my friend
I could see you were crying
Couldn't believe it would come to an end
Inside it felt like dying

Woke up blind you were on the phone
In my mind you're a teaser
Looking hot with that tight dress on
So good you just can't defeat her

It's good to see you again
Seems like a long time my friend
Where will we go...
Where will it end...

Weeper deeper - Into the fire
Weeper deeper...

Turned out as one good season
Went past too quickly again
Will someone show me a reason
Gonna keep it clean tree from sin

Now the mistakes have been made
Too many tears in the shade
Where will we go...
Where will it end...

Weeper deeper - into the fire
Weeper deeper...

It's good to see you again
Seems like a long time my friend
Where will we go...
Where will it end...

Weeper deeper - Into the fire
Weeper deeper...
9. Sensational Walk (3:02)
I didn't like the way you blew my mind off
I didn't like the way you talked
I didn't like the way you gave me fever
I just liked your sen-sensational walk

Sensation!
Walk!

I didn't like the way you pulled the trigger
I didn't like the way you shocked
I saw you when you looked into your mirror
I'm talking 'bout a tem-temptational Flirt

Sensation!
Walk!

Sensation!
Walk!
Sensation!
Sensational Walk...
10. Tragedy (4:37)
Every time that I have this recurring dream
I can't believe that it's true
There is a light, and a distant scream
If you only knew

Ignoring the words
And the signs that once were given to us

From the land
To the sea
Can you feel the tragedy

Do you fear
What you see
Can you feel the tragedy

It’s too late to turn
A whisper in the wind
We will never learn
It’s time to count our sins
The future’s passed
The spell was cast
We’ll never last

From the land
To the sea
Can you feel the tragedy

Do you fear
What you see
Can you feel the tragedy

Some had time to stop and learn
They looked away, too late to turn

Ignoring the words
And the signs that once were given to us

From the land
To the sea
Can you feel the tragedy

Do you fear
What you see
Can you feel the tragedy

Don't you fear
What you see
Can you feel the tragedy

From the land
To the sea
We ignored the prophecy
11. Leave No Traces (2:54)
Through the mist
A silent scream
A body lying on the ground
There's a killer on the loose
You better watch your back tight
He's firing at the speed of sound

Gunfire echoes in the dark
See the flash of light
Under the full moon
Bullet chasin' through the park
it'll find it's target soon

Leave no traces
On the ground
Silver faces
Souls lost but never found
Leave no traces
On the ground
Silver faces

Cruelty creeping up on you
Send cold shivers to the bone
You may shed a tear
But don't ever try to get near
This is for real and not a dream

Through the mist
A silent scream
A body lying on the ground
There's a killer on the loose
You better watch your back tight
He's firing at the speed of sound

Leave no traces
On the ground
Silver faces
Souls lost but never found
Leave no traces
On the ground
Silver faces
12. Runaway on the Loose (4:04)
He was a lonesome rider
Used to live outside the law
Spreading fear all over town
Wilder than a fire
Racing down the road
Not letting anything get in his way

To be a Runaway on the loose
Ready to light the fuse
To be a Runaway on the loose

He had only one desire
To stay alive on his machine
Feeling the ground tremble underneath
Had the will and power
To the sound of screaming steel
Raging power from his wheel

To be a Runaway on the loose
Ready to light the fuse
To be a Runaway on the loose
13. Break the Chains (3:31)
Hey you! Standing In the crowd
I've got a message for you that you can scream out loud
It goes: when you're stuck in a cage
You should Break the Chains and find a way of your own

So what else can I say
There is only one way!

Break The Chains
Let it out Spread your wings
Break The Chains
Let your freedom ring

I know what goes on behind the wall
All those people who are tied to the ground for no cause
All they really want is to be set free
Can you really imagine how that would feel

There's no need to wait
Let's do It today!

Break The Chains
Let it out Spread your wings
Break The Chains
Let your freedom ring

So what else can I say
Let's do it today!

Break The Chains
Let it out Spread your wings
Break The Chains
Let your freedom ring
14. Warlord of the Night (4:07)
I am the ruler of the Kingdom of Despair
Where death rules life and sirens calls
My name is whispered, tales of fear across the land
A grim master, always in command

Now I'm back out on the hunt
Wasting lives
Hunting down the soul of everyone around

I am the Warlord of the Night

Behold the conqueror returning from his fight
Bring all the evil chants to life
You can smell the taste of blood within these castle walls
At midnight death Is waiting In the halls

Now I'm back out on the hunt once more
Wasting lives
Hunting down the soul of everyone around

I am the Warlord of the Night
I am the Warlord of the Night
