Ancient Spirit Rising Lyrics

Submitted by level LightListener
1. The Messenger
By the first rays of dawn, I rise up by the cold morning light,
And I'm on my way
Soon the sound of my horse will be breaking the silence of a brand new day

No one can see my face as I hide in the dark of my jet black cloak
Nor a man or a child could ever know why I ride by their homes

For I bring the truth to all who will
Be wise enough to hear the words I speak
But no one seems to believe

[chorus]
Call me madman, I bring you madness
Call me seer, I bring you fears
I am the Messenger, I am the messenger
No one believes but I speak the truth

Tragedy is what all mankind will surely reach, It's meant to be
Hear my words, I warn you all of the coming end, you must believe

For I received a gift of prophecy
A mission I must fulfil, Chosen to bring the word that no man will believe

[chorus]
Call me madman, I bring you madness
Call me seer, I bring you fears
I am the Messenger, I am the messenger
No one believes but I speak the truth

Every day life is passing me by
Far away I long for the day I will finally
Find peace from all this refrain
But now I must ride on my way

[chorus]
Call me madman, I bring you madness
Call me seer, I bring you fears
I am the Messenger, I am the messenger
No one believes but I speak the truth
I am the Messenger, I am the messenger
You will believe when death reaps you all
2. Tempest Calling
I talk to the tempest, in front of me
Facing her dark deep eyes, I am ready to scream

Into her stormy eyes, My fears I behold
Terror will strike me down to the floor

Over and over I long for the day
When I can find the meanings of my life
I descend into the maelstrom of my darkest side
No one can hear me while I ask aloud to the face of this horror

[chorus]
What does it take to be a man, harder than before
to cry your tears and not afraid to let them show
What does it take to face your inner demons, with no words left untold
What does it take to be a stronger man (when the Tempest in raging on)
What does it take to be a real man
Tempest calling now

I talk to the Tempest, for the last time
Standing in front of her, my arms open wide
She opens her jaws now and flashes her teeth
"Son, it's my turn now to speak"

Over and over, day after day
I fed on the power of your inner self
I am the maelstrom of your darkest side
I have no answer and you will not care
When I will crash you and wipe you away

[chorus]
What does it take to be a man, harder than before
to cry your tears and not afraid to let them show
What does it take to face your inner demons, with no words left untold
What does it take to be a stronger man (when the Tempest in raging on)
What does it take to be a real man
Tempest calling now

Everything changes and all stays the same
Don't look for a reason, it doesn't matter anyway
You must face the Tempest, don't try to step aside
When the storm rages harder, it's your time to fight

[chorus]
What does it take to be a man, harder than before
to cry your tears and not afraid to let them show
What does it take to face your inner demons, with no words left untold
What does it take to be a stronger man (when the Tempest in raging on)
What does it take to be a real man
Tempest calling now

Tempest Calling!
3. The Lady of Shalott
[I. She has a sad lovely face]

Slowly she moves through the willows
Silent she reaches for the boat
She has a sad lovely face
She is the Lady of Shalott

Sail on

When the mirror is cracking and the white mist surrounds her
All things must go, all things must go
A new journey's beginning to a new way of being but
All things must go, all things must go
She will walk in the sunlight and be free from her burden and
All things must go, all things must go
But it's time to set sails in a mystical journey when all things must go

[II. The portal of infinity...]

The Queen of Light appears
High on the distant shore
And as I breathe my very last second
She parts the darkness with her hand

The spiral passage of Time is moving
Silent through the galaxy
And she who controls all our destinies
In her hands she holds the spirits of kings

If I could do it all over again
I guess I would do it just the same
All life is formed and re-formed again
I finally found my Holy Grail, reaching the

[chorus]
Portal of Infinity, open wide to let my spirit in
Portal of Infinity, take me back to where all life begins
Never to look back, never to feel pain again
Forever to live
Never to look back, never to feel pain again
Forever free

I've finally find my way back home - Infinity
I've finally find my way back home - Eternity
I've finally find my way back home - Infinity
I've finally find my way back home,
re-united with myself

[III. ...and Beyond]

Portal of Infinity, open wide to let my spirit in
Portal of Infinity, take me back to where all life begins
Portal of Infinity, now I know what I find on the other side
Portal of Infinity, by this blinding light a new legend is born
Never to look back, never to feel pain again,
Forever to live
Never to look back, never to feel pain again
Forever free

I've finally find my way back home - Infinity
I've finally find my way back home - Eternity
I've finally find my way back home - Infinity
I've finally find my way back home, re-united with myself
4. I Stand Alone
I am the one and only man who can lead you to the secret gates
I know the way to burn them down
With my return I will bring doom to them all

A Dreaming City ruled the world, arrogant men acting like gods
They played with life and death for ten thousand years
A court of ghosts in marble halls dance at the sound of death's call
In mind and spirit they're already dead

[pre-chorus]
And so I take my life in my hands, make my own decision
I will embrace my Fate
So I stand

[chorus]
I stand - I stand over my fears
I stand - Wipe away all my tears
I stand - for what is right to be done
After the fall - I stand alone

I am the one and only man who can lead you to the secret gates
This game of pride has gone too far, I lived my life as an outcast

[pre-chorus]
And so I took my life in my hands, made my own decision
did what was right to be done
My Fate fell upon me but now I rule my destiny
As King of Ruins at last
I stand

[chorus]
I stand - I stand over my fears
I stand - Wipe away all my tears
I stand - for what is right to be done
After the fall - I stand alone

[repeat]
5. Ancient Spirit Rising
[I. A Moment Frozen In Time]

When I long for the truth
When I search for my youth
That's when I call out your name, inside myself
Deep inside I know there's something to re-live

Day after day, life can be so hard
I need the strength to carry on
That's when I wait for you to come back
and turn wrong to right
With a word I'll be setting my spirit free
With a word I'll be where I am meant to be
And so I await for you to come back
Yes, I await for the spirit to rise

Rise! Rise!

When I long for the truth
When I search for my youth
That's when I call out your name, inside myself
Deep inside I know there's something to re-live

Day after day, life can be so hard
I need the strength to carry on
That's when I wait for you to come back and turn wrong to right
With a word I'll be setting my spirit free
With a word I'll be setting my spirit free
With a word I'll be where I am meant to be
With a word I'll be where I am meant to be

[chorus]
Ancient Spirit will rise, right from my soul
Ancient Spirit will rise, and sound a heavy tone
Ancient Spirit will rise, from inside of me
Ancient Spirit will rise, he will set me free

Ancient Spirit will rise, Ancient Spirit will rise

[II. The Future Memories of a Glorious Past]

There was a time was sang of battles won
Of golden kingdoms, shining diamonds and pearls
Then suddenly all of these treasures turned to dust
Leaders of men bargain the glory of our past

And I can't explain the things I begged and borrowed
Now in front of me there's just a stale tomorrow

Domains were glittering like suns on windy seas
Amazing castles where the talent could be free
But now the same old games are blackening the sun
True art is buried by an army of one-track minds

And I can't explain the things I begged and borrowed
And I don't want to live in a world so full of sorrow
A world with no tomorrow
A world so full of sorrow
A world without tomorrow

[chorus]
Ancient Spirit will rise, right from my soul
Ancient Spirit will rise, and sound a heavy tone
Ancient Spirit will rise, from inside of me
Ancient Spirit will rise, he will set me free

Ancient Spirit will rise
my Ancient Spirit will guide me right, to the end of time
And I wait for this moment to come for all my life
My Ancient Spirit will rise
6. On the Wings of the Firebird
I want to climb the highest peaks of the Universe
To reach the tallest mountains of the moon
I set my soul on fire, transcend this world of nothing
Imagination running mad to the extreme

I want to fly on the wings of the Firebird

I need to burn the distance, leave this old world below
My flesh is soon consumed in a crazy smoke
And endless source of power, eternal fire I'm breathing
My voice as a burning tongue the sun is licking

[pre-chorus]
So I summon the fire elementals, the ones I'm keeping inside
I call for my imagination to rise and shine, to make my life...

[chorus]
Burn! Burn! The tempest of fire is cleansing my soul
Burn! Burn! The wind of volcano is scorching my core
You can not stop me when I'm flying high and
Higher on the wings of the Firebird

[pre-chorus]
So I summon the fire elementals, the ones I'm keeping inside
I call for my imagination to rise and shine
to awake and make my life...

[chorus]
Burn! Burn! The tempest of fire is cleansing my soul
Burn! Burn! The wind of volcano is scorching my core
You can not stop me when I'm flying high and
Higher on the wings and...
Burn! Burn! The tempest of fire is cleansing my soul
Burn! Burn! The wind of volcano is scorching my core
You can not stop me when I'm flying high and
Higher on the wings of the Firebird
7. Another Time, Another Place, Another Space
I'm turning back the Wheel of Time
to try to steal some more
Of passing hours, days and nights, now precious as bright gold
And as the Wheel is moving slowly, in never ending grind
The time has come to make the change as things are bound to die

[pre-chorus]
Oh, I just have to light the darkness of my soul
So I can find a place to hide and reach my final goal
Forget the life I led so far and leave it all behind
And in the dawn of a million stars who knows what I will find

[chorus]
In another time, in another place, in another space
In another time, in another place, in another space

Lake comets fighting in the sky, a blast of shining stars
Two different souls collide, at last to re-unite as one
I'm heading back into future time to find where I belong
The Wheel will end his final turn, I complete my return

[pre-chorus]
Oh, I just have to light the darkness of my soul
So I can find a place to hide and reach my final goal
Forget the life I led so far and leave it all behind
And in the dawn of a million stars who knows what I will find

[chorus]

We live through space and time
We want more life and time
We want more, more, more
8. Sky Rider
By the sacred laws of nature I am damned
By the Highest Court I was found guilty
Unforgiving judgement I could not escape
Terrible the curse cast upon me

[pre-chorus]
No one can or will know the answer
why on the horizon I ride

[chorus]
Sky Rider - let my fire rip the darkest night
Ghost Rider - for eternity condemned to ride
Sky Rider - for my sins my spirit stays earthbound
Hell Rider - thundering my way across the sky

No one can stand in my way
No one can lay my remains in sacred ground to rest

If there is a heaven, I could not be more far from it
If there's really a hell. I'll be glad to reach it
For everywhere I go all I bring is misery
I can not be granted my passage to a new life

[pre-chorus]
No one can or will know the answer
why on the horizon I ride

[chorus]
Sky Rider - let my fire rip the darkest night
Ghost Rider - for eternity condemned to ride
Sky Rider - for my sins my spirit stays earthbound
Hell Rider - thundering my way across the sky

No one can stop me to ride
No one can lay my remains in sacred ground to die

No one will know the answer
No one can see the way to set my soul free
I'm forever bound to be...

[chorus]
Sky Rider - let my fire rip the darkest night
Ghost Rider - for eternity condemned to ride
Sky Rider - for my sins my spirit stays earthbound
Hell Rider - thundering my way across the sky

No one can stop me to ride
No one can lay my remains in sacred ground to die!
9. How the Mighty Have Fallen
What will you say when you reach your moment?
Meanings are really hard to find
To look for a way or a reason to be alive
How can you win when all things around you will be gone
I just want to know why
I just want to know how
I just got to know why

[chorus]
So tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reached for the stars?
Tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reached for the perfect sunrise?
They just left their dreams behind...

Guardian angels have been left abandoned
When everything is said and done
(in the land of the of the brightest sun)
Look for new hopes or dreams to conquer
How can you see them while you live for the day

You will find during the endless sleepless night
Hopes are the things that will help you to light up the darkest life
How could you leave them all behind?

[chorus]
Tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reached for the stars?
Tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reached for a future so bright?
They forgot their dreams behind.

Don't you ever forget to follow your heart
Look inside yourself and regain what you lost

I) Once They Were Invincible (a jig)
"Don't you ever forget the beautiful things you did and
felt during your life, your loved ones and the dreams
you had. They will give you the strength to carry on
and finally reach the brightest sun. Just remember
the Ones who onces were invincible and celebrate them
for the inspiration they gave for your own life."

Never forget your beautiful moments
They'll give you strength to carry on
(to reach the land of the brightest sun)
Think of the Ones who once were invincible
And celebrate what they meant for your life

You will find (you will find)
Everyday (everyday)
New hopes for you to regain (How could you leave them all behind?)
I want to know how could you leave them all behind?

[chorus]
So tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reached for the stars?
Tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reach for the stars?
Tell me how the Mighty have fallen
How could they fail as they reach for the sky?
Tell me how the Mighty have fallen
I just want to know how can you live your life?
If you don't keep your dreams alive?
10. Too Scared to Run (bonus track)
Too scared I could not run
I could not make a sound
Lights were flashing
My whole life passing
My feet were stuck to the ground

Too light to call it night
Too dark to call it day
Too scared to stay and fight
Too scared to run away

So scared I could not move
I could not make a sound
There were people running
People shouting
Flashes all around

Too scared to run
Too scared to run away

Too scared I could not think
My eyes could not scarcely see
My heart was racing
My legs were shaking
They would not carry me

Lights were flashing
My whole life passing
My heart, my heart
My heart was racing
My legs were shaking
Could not see, I could not see
