Future of the Past Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Holy Man (5:08)
Behold the mirror of infinity
Do nothing wrong, entrust the blasphemy
As we linger on to life itself
Take the answers, put them on the shelf, on the shelf

Why does god keep on tormenting me?
Just give in and I will set you free
Hide the truth in bad disguise
Swift, remove the mask from your eyes, from your eyes

Light, love, joy, hide it in the misery
Smear, shame, plague, let me be

You feel as clear as a broken glass
Roaring engines filled up with gas
Speeding down the wrong way
When you're there it will be hell to pay, hell to pay

Don't trust the words of the holy liar
He's not saintly that stinking friar
All your money he will spend
Let the crap come down to an end, to an end

Light, love, joy, hide it in the misery
Smear, shame, plague, let me be

(The Friar)
"Come to me my child
In the chapel I'll make you wild
Give your flesh to me
No this is love, not blasphemy"

"Do Not Scream"

The huckster keeps on pushing stuff
But no one notices that it's a bluff
Wake up from your sarcophagus
Please, we beg, come to deliver us, deliver us

Light, love, joy, hide it in the misery
Smear, shame, plague, let me be
2. Sabotage (4:14)
Emptiness and hollow
Nothingness and pain
Twisted mind that won't regret
Coming around again
Evil thoughts, entwines the lies
A forest where trees have eyes
Watching me, from far behind
But there is nothing there to find

To grieve and mourn, the loss of souls
Can't judge what's true or sane
Walk the street, of loneliness
But I will come back again

Still see them, their faces, can hear them
Sneaking up on me
No heroes, no justice, all victims
It's a sabotage

Crippled scared, and unaware
Of what I have become
No one to help, or even care
As I wish of the life beyond

Can someone put, an end to this
Fear of never being heard
Look at me I'm brittle as glass
Crying out an empty word

Still see them, their faces, can hear them
Sneaking up on me
No heroes, no justice, all victims
It's a sabotage

Emptiness and hollow
Nothingness and pain
Twisted mind that won't regret
Coming around again

I try to think of now, not then
As I try to live my life
A house, a car, my dog named Ben
A lovely daughter and a wife

But how I seek, it echoes still
The torture that went on
It forces me to look back
At my endless marathon

Still see them, their faces, can hear them
Sneaking up on me
No heroes, no justice, all victims
It's a sabotage
3. In the Shadow of the Rainbow (4:54)
When nothing will be the same
What can stop the cry-outs of pain
The end has come for the warhorse crusade
No one can hide in this masquerade

Someone says the end is near
But we've got nothing left to fear
Deliver us from torture
Deliver us from pain

Can you feel the fear tonight
Waves of thunder roar
We are blinded by the light
Here comes atomic war

Blinded by the cloudy heavens
Gazing at the blood red sky
Falling rain will wash our skin
Atomic winter is closing in

Iron bird sound, a piercing wall
Waiting for the heavens to fall
Deliver us from waiting
Deliver us to peace

Can you feel the fear tonight
Waves of thunder roar
We are blinded by the light
Here comes atomic war

Slowly but surely poisoning the soil
Calmly making its pace
Come heaven, come hell the power that bends
Raging battle has come to an end

Pierced by concrete, iron and lead
Ended humanity's maidenhead
Deliver us from suffering
Deliver us to god

Can you feel the fear tonight
Waves of thunder roar
We are blinded by the light
Here comes atomic war
4. Magic Forest (5:34)
I can remember as a child
When no one could play with me
In the attic I would hide
Were my mind set me free

Up the stairs with my favourite toy
A dog with the softest of furs
All the days he gave me joy
And my fantasy took place

Walking trough the wakening woods
The treetop filters the sun
Beams of light cross my path
And it filled my soul with fun

Welcome to my magic forest
Were fantasy and truth collide
Welcome to my magic forest
There's need for you to hide

On the ground a carpet of green
That softens the narrow way
Creatures that you seldom see
Are whispering to me to stay

Underneath the old oak tree
Below the trailing root
A silver stream is floating free
Pouring tunes on its lusty flute

Welcome to my magic forest
Were fantasy and truth collide
Welcome to my magic forest
There's need for you to hide

It's all in the air
I feel their presence now
So divine and fair

Welcome to my magic forest
Were fantasy and truth collide
Welcome to my magic forest
There's need for you to hide

On meadows were I take my chance
The fog fills all the air
Elves seduce me with their dance
Surrounds me with golden hair

Slowly I return from sleep
Walls around me again
Just happiness and I won't weep
Just me and my best friend
5. Angels (5:29)
Lay down still, you won't fight no more
The battle is over, you reached the sacred shore

Now arise, let heaven free your mind

During countless years the journey took place
Never-ending illness scarred and marked your face

Swim the oceans of time
Let the waves rinse your eyes so blind
Forever hope you'll find
Long lost love and peace of mind

Young and innocent, never meant no wrong
In cold December snowflakes sang their song

Swim the oceans of time
Let the waves rinse your eyes so blind
Forever hope you'll find
Long lost love and peace of mind

Nightfall was your friend of gloom
Safely rocked in the crystal womb
By the altar I wept
Unleashed emotions, I overstepped

Refugees in heaven, not written in the rune
Sometime the gods call their angels back to soon

Tormented in the incessant fire
Purgatory is flaming higher
Burn the anguish and hate
To thirst for redemption is not to late

Swim the oceans of time
Let the waves rinse your eyes so blind
Forever hope you'll find
Long lost love and peace of mind

So this is the innuendo
Choirs of angels in crescendo
Heartbeats like a drum
Realise the time has come

Refugees in heaven, not written in the rune
Sometime the gods call their angels back to soon
6. Flying Dutchman (4:57)
To the man that was lost at sea
See him leaving the comforting land
Icy wind rips the deep apart
His vessel gaining on the roaring waves

Don't go to far, stay close to the ground
No one to save you if trouble occurs
The sound of his loved one echoed in his head
Just today, never again

Nevermore, never again
Man lost at sea
Sank into the deep
Now his spirit's free
Nevermore, never again
Man lost at sea
Fought all night long
The sirens calling me

Screaming, roaring a cry for help
The wind is whipping the dark to white
Taste the sea, the salty foam
Pushed into a void of oblivion

Tortured by the will of the violent storm
Trying not to lose his grip
Sinking deeper into his grave
Just today, never again

Nevermore, never again
Man lost at sea
Sank into the deep
Now his spirit's free
Nevermore, never again
Man lost at sea
Fought all night long
The sirens calling me

All is quiet, soft and warm
On the horizon a vessel of ghosts
Resting upon a mirror of streams

Not one move, not a sound on deck
Just the wind whispering the nightmare
Rest the truth that no one will know
Just today, never again
Just today, never again

Nevermore, never again
Man lost at sea
Sank into the deep
Now his spirit's free
Nevermore, never again
Man lost at sea
Fought all night long
The sirens calling me

Nevermore, never again
Man ceased to be
Sank into the deep
The sirens calling me
7. On the Outside (6:34)
I'm sorry if I dropped the ball again
You will never be my long lost friend
If we shall go on this way
Someone will have to pay, for this mess
And it won't be me

I'm standing on the outside, always looking in
Standing in a corner, to watch you cause the sin

To commit the worst of crimes
Disgrace and shame are blessings in my world
Sign the deal in blood
An obligation you never can slow down
I didn't read the fine print

I'm standing on the outside, always looking in
Standing in a corner, to watch you cause the sin
I'm standing on the outside, always looking in
Standing in a corner, to watch you cause the sin

Some things cannot be undone
We just have to move on
Carry on with our lives
How we want it to be
Praying to god
That our life is not a fraud
All the glamour and hurt
Lose the dreams in the dirt

Perpetually in life we learn
Being dissident we yearn
When the deal is signed
You can't rewind, your life
Baptised in holy water

I'm standing on the outside, always looking in
Standing in a corner, to watch you cause the sin
I'm standing on the outside, always looking in
Standing in a corner, to watch you cause the sin

Some things cannot be undone
We just have to move on
Carry on with our lives
How we want it to be
Praying to god
That our life is not a fraud
All the glamour and hurt
Lose the dreams in the dirt
8. Ghost Train (4:32)
I really don't know if it is yours to find
But something you did put a spell on my mind
I'm beauty, you're beast, and I'm your angel of death
I'm haunting your mind with horrors in my breath

Ride the Ghost train; Fix the Ghost Train of my mind
You've got something there to find
Ride the Ghost train; Fix the Ghost Train of my mind
You've got something there to find

Investigate my soul till you can't find no more
Can it be you who will give me the cure?
An eternal time is running through my veins
The wicked old vampire is out of his domain

He will come for you, and there is nothing you can do
Flying high, the bat is out tonight

Ride the Ghost train; Fix the Ghost Train of my mind
You've got something there to find
Ride the Ghost train; Fix the Ghost Train of my mind
You've got something there to find

(The Vampire)
Step out of the light
Join the everlasting night

Lifeless by the dawn
We are all Satan's spawn

(Vampire Mob)
"Creeping, crawling, digging in the mud
We are doomed to thirst for your blood
Creeping, crawling, digging in the mud
Swimming in the sinners' flood"

I will be present wherever you'll go
But my footprints won't show in the snow
My long lost love, you're back into my life
Once again we will be husband and wife

In life or death will you take side?
Will you be my dying bride?

Ride the Ghost train; Fix the Ghost Train of my mind
You've got something there to find
Ride the Ghost train; Fix the Ghost Train of my mind
You've got something there to find

(Vampire Mob)
"Come on down, to a lower ground
Forever together, forever lost in time"
"Come on down, to a lower ground
Forever together, forever lost in time"
9. Future of the Past (8:23)
Born of woman Daikini Child
Escaped with maiden into the wild
Set out dogs, try to hunt them down
Float with the stream away from evil harm
Elves and fairies lead the way
Swordsman free, led to stray

When the Phantom Queen arises
In her fiery crimson might
She will conquer land and earth
To sons of sin, she will give birth

Hear the calls, from nowhere
All around you, everywhere
Screams in the air
At the gates, sent from hell
Trolls and demons in darkness dwell
They guard the spell

Can you trust the stranger in a cage
When the Phantom Queen arises
Eerie strangers wander trough the night
Future of the past brings light

Terror and fear in no mans land
Deceiving offspring who won't take a stand
Firstborn of witch, she is sent to kill
Soldier of destiny, their blood will be spilled
Misty shadow spreading fear
Wormhole army in grimy gear

Whisper the prophesy out at night
Death upon thee who will not fight
Storm the castle at full speed
Show no mercy, even if they plead

Hear the calls, from nowhere
All around you, everywhere
Screams in the air
At the gates, sent from hell
Trolls and demons in darkness dwell
They guard the spell

Can you trust the stranger in a cage
When the Phantom Queen arises
Eerie strangers wander trough the night
Future of the past brings light

Men of glory, their faith to be
Killed in battle at Teraslin
Deep from dungeons the prisoners moan
A child is born to retake the throne

Hear the calls, from nowhere
All around you, everywhere
Screams in the air
At the gates, sent from hell
Trolls and demons in darkness dwell
They guard the spell

Can you trust the stranger in a cage
When the Phantom Queen arises
Eerie strangers wander trough the night
Future of the past brings light
