Kingdom of Madness Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level 휘리언       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Paradise (6:24)
I've just returned to give you fears
To bring you pain as much as tears
You'll never know what's in my mind

It's an invitation to my way
Pray to me or you will pay
When I'm smiling what's behind

[Chorus]

I'll be tearing down you paradise
I'll be bringing you down
No warning - I'm pawning

[Repeat]

Now let us open up the gate
Leave your way before it's too late
Into the heart of dark insanity
As black as hate but even white
It must be the dragon that I ride
Something burning my reality.

[Repeat * Solo: Jens * Repeat]
2. Wings of a Dream (5:24)
This is my day - soldiers are coming to take me away
May justice be done
I hold on to pray but no god seems to hear me
The pain I will face is my price for disgrace
For things that I've never done

The toll of the bell and the flight of the raven
They open my cell and I feel it's too late
There's no need to yell they don't want to hear me
The morning has come
It seems like my work's been done.
Today I'll be the one

Sometimes it's good to be schizophrene
Cause when I'm close to the end I've got always a friend
On my lonesome way to the final decay
I listen to a voice telling me

[Chorus]

Now dream away - follow me astray
To a world that we can reach on wings of a dream

[Repeat]

I've got the key to the end of the nightmare
To leave all the dreams of bane and despair
The life I redeem has got the price of insanity
That you just can't get cause you're not even mad
You only trust in your eyes

[Repeat Solo: Jens]

Once upon a time there was a noble man like me
He only cared about the things he saw
One dark night without a moon he loved
The dog of his queen
Thinking it was her he enjoyed the life in the raw

[Repeat]
3. Heart of Twilight (5:32)
Tell me why can't I understand
The feelings deep inside
Why do I try to scratch away the stains
Deep in my heart I feel there's a place
Where love and hate collide
But is everybody who asks for reasons
Destined to go insane

I don't know if I'm right or wrong
The heart of twilight is much too strong
Leaving the pride so I'm stopping to stride
I only dare to hide

[Chorus]

Dying, dying! My mind is what I've lost
My head is dying cold
Dying, dying! My mind is what I've lost
The heart of twilight knows

An old illusion of understanding
Is fading day by day
The apparition of a future vision is black
Everytime I dive in depressions
The colors of life are grey
Father forgive me if I decide to come back

[Repeat * Solo: Jens * Repeat]
4. Dark Symphony (1:05)
instrumental
5. Deadmaker (5:15)
I can't feel, and I can't see
I'm falling down what's going on with me
Lord in heaven why am I here
Do I live to rise or rise to fall to shed another tear

One more time I fell that I'm alone
I can't describe it cause it's better to be shown
Feel the darkness covering the spite
Hear me screaming when it's pounding deep inside

Forever I'll be a poisoned thorn
I'll be haunting among your lives
The moment I was born it was time for him to rise

[Chorus]

Deadmaker, deadmaker
Why don't you realize
That he can paralyze you all

[Repeat]

My sorrow created by you
And even me cause I'm a self-destroying fool
I feel the spirit growing deep inside
I don't expect your comprehension
Cause even I don't know why

[Repeat Solo: Both Repeat]
6. Angel Rebellion (6:44)
In the silence there's a fear
It's growing stronger with every breath I take
A fire inside that drives me mad
A haunt of darkness that makes me stay awake

But is it just a trace of evil
Or is it the force to bring me down

I feel like being chained by my noble reputation
I feel like being killed by a square and boring nation
It doesn't matter how but I know that I want out

Take a trip with me, stay a dream on brocken
Watch them play their game, no one here can stop it
Walpurgis night is closer than every holy day

[Chorus]

Right now I will set my life on fire
Now I'll satisfy my mad desires
Back into hell - Angel rebellion
Back into hell - Angel rebellion

[Solo: Jens * Both * Tobi * Jens]

[Repeat * Solo: Both]
7. When a Hero Cries (3:59)
Awake by that dreams of you
Being all alone in the night
Coldness in my empty chamber
no one here holding me tight

I could take a masquerade
To show you I don't need to cry
But I can let my tears run away
To show you I'm as weak as a child

so many times you make me cry
But I got no reason to deny
Because I'm here and still alive

[Chorus]

When a hero cries, emotions arise
The tears in my face seem to be a trace of life
When a hero cries

It felt like heaven to me but it was nothing for you
You said that I should forget but it ran me through
And I still can't deny that you still make me cry

[Repeat]
8. Steel Church (6:29)
Huh!
What do you think when you smile into my eyes
You say that you like me but I know that's one of your lies
My love is abused my compassion misused
Cause I am too kind to despise, oh no

You hear me you see me and use me but you neglect
You like having me on your tail and show me your back
Why do we praise an illusion of grace
I know the way to survive
Standing to fight the love that misguides
The steel church is the savior of life

[Chorus]

Take me - take me to a church that accepts my hate
Take me - take me to a church of steel on steel
Take me - take me to a world I can lose my grace
Take me - take me to a hell of steel on steel

Maybe I`m evil but I take every chance
When I can get more there's no time to waste for romance
Show me how to maltreat to lie and to cheat
To fight steel on steel
Out of the light into the night
That is what I wanna feel

Much too long I really have been to kind
Can`t you tell me why could I be so blind

[Repeat * Solo: Both * Repeat]
9. The Kingdom (18:23)
Watching the eventide, the sun will hide and sleep
My heart's beat is slow. I'm thinking about my belief
Rain washing over me cleaning up my brain
Till I question all my thoughts
And clean 'em up from stains
Clean em up from stains
Clean em up from stains, yeah
Die free, yeah!

[Solo: Jens]

Welcome to the circle of those who know their way
Welcome to those who`ve realized their needs
Who don't need fear to pray and betray

But they don`t accept us living free
Believing what we need
haven`t heard anything about poetry
They only know their painful greed

[Pre-chorus]

Don`t ever trust those who say they know
Those who show and force you to bow
I`ve done no wrong but to ask my brain
To be free from pain built up by those who reign

[Chorus]

A mind in disguise - now I know
It's better to hide my belief than feeding the crow
A life on the run - now I know
The kingdom of disguise is the last place to go

In the eyes of the world I'm a master of heresy
Swimming against the tide - endangering democracy
I remember the day when I was young and bold
When I thought that my mind was free
Until the time that I was told

[Repeat * Solo: Jens]

Out in the night they laugh about me and my Knowledge and
Speak prayers our god don`t want to hear. But listen:
Wherever you are, I will get you! Well, you don`t know who
I am? I am the inquisition and I am your heretics
Barbarian end!

[Solo: Both * Dominik * Both]

Beware and be silent and follow the sign
Keep the mission as a secret of your mind
One out of a million is a friend of your line
Don`t forget there are evil eyes behind

[Solo: Jens]

Holding the candle she was found in the rain
Bright eyes and blissful but they thought
That she went astray
Too late to escape, she seemed to be insane
She got imprisoned because she got her own way

[Solo: Both]

[Inquisitor:]
Now can`t you remember?
What have you done?
[Accused:]
Believe me, I`m innocent. I`ve done no wrong!
[Inquisitor:]
But you are strange! You are guilty I guess!
And after the torture you will confess......and burn!

Ending in the flames, burning down her fame
Prayers to the saints, their end of an evil game

Run to your last refuge
Maybe the silence of your voice
Lie but be true to yourself
Sometimes you`ve got no choice
Follow a king called silence
Live in his kingdom of disguise
There is a temple of shelter
Where god forgives you your lies.

[Repeat]

I can see it bright here in front of your eyes
the apparition never dies
Yes I see, yes I feel, yes I know it all
