Vain Glory Opera Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 휘리언
1. Overture (1:31)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

Nowhere yo run
Nowhere to go
Welcome to life damnation
Welcome to fun
Welcome to hope
Here is your invitation
Welcome to the gate
To the unknown fate
Waiting for a better day
Jesters dance around
Slowly growing old
Having party while they stay

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to go
Welcome to life damnation
Welcome to fun
Welcome to hope
Here is your invitation
2. Until We Rise Again (4:28)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

2080 - our world is an empty domain
Emotions have died
Men bleeding oil are the heroes for children today
Drinking the blood of the weak dictators bring pain
But they show us a smile
Feelings and love are kept hidden in a madhouse cave

It's a mad revolution
And the spirits will die
Oh escape the confusion
Take my hand.

Now take my hand
Take me now
Take my hand
We wont be so free
Until we rise again!

Eden is mad so enjoy it and fly to the sun
Don't you return
Your breath and your heartbeat are gifts
You've been given for life - oh yeah!

Oh your deepest emotions
are a sign of our life ad our love
No robot can stop us
Take my hand
3. How Many Miles (5:39)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet & Edguy]

Oh yeah...
Watching a face and a smile and a light
When you're walking alone in the street
I know your look always gives you the might
Many miles from your ass to your feet

And I dream- what I've seen
Is what I want it to be - self-made reality

How many miles to the gate of reality
How many steps left to go to my dreams
How many miles to the land where my dreams come true
Dreams which come true just have died

Look like a queen but you talk like a pawn
And I know you're a fool in disguise
Godfather tell me how to carry on
Blinded by fantasies of lies

And I dream- what I've seen
Is what I want it to be - self-made reality

I see your smile, a golden masquerade
And I know my dream will be my fate
Time has stolen my fantasy
Cause it has become a pale reality
4. Scarlet Rose (5:10)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

The moment when you held me tight
won't come back any more
And at the end of that night
you slammed the door
My dream it died away
just when I saw red
And nothing but a memory
is left inside my head

Nothing is forever in life
But a memory believe it's true
And when I gaze in the rain
I'm crying just for you

The scarlet rose has died
Lost inside the night
Left in my mind like a dream and full of pride
The scarlet rose has died

The one and only way to catch the
beauty of a dawn
Is to take a picture
of the growing sun

I got that experience
no one could steal away
One moment of your life is mine
I remember day by day

Nothing is forever in life
But a memory believe it's true
And when I gaze in the rain
I'm crying just for you
5. Out Of Control (5:04)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet & Edguy]

Into a place of darkness. He was born to live alone
He got one big desire. One day he'd get the crown
Hey devil come on help me now
Let me be your slave to serve you
To let me be the king
Just give me a sign
Take on my mind and let me stay blind
A victim of life too weak to be king

Out of control - My life is a chamber of tears, fear and hate
Out of control - Help me to gain the crown, here is my fate

Wherever I may roam there will be hate and pain
eye for eye, tooth for tooth. respect is what I gain
I look up to Mr Crowley. evil powers now unite!
I will be your darkest nightmare
my life is a fatal fight

Just give me a sign
Take on my mind and let me stay blind
A victim of life too weak to be king

"listen up my friend you just cry for a hand
but you only pretend that you're bad. Now!"

We'll take on my mind
6. Vain Glory Opera (6:08)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

The prayers have been spoken
may the gods be on my side
may they join my way to bring me victory
seven at one stroke
my triumph and my pride
will be history
but behind my enemies eyes
a soul in disguise
not only lies

We live to fight the hand of doom
we got the pride to strike a fool
vain glory be my wicked guide

what's hell without a paradise
what's the night without a day
we would think it's bright
what's a fall if we can't rise
what's a hero at a play
without a fool to fight

but behind my enemies eyes
a soul in disguise
not only lies

but behind my enemies eyes
a soul in disguise
not only lies
7. Fairytale (5:11)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet & Edguy]

yeah...
giants of stone build up my desire
no one could tell us the secret of fire
the hinger for wisdom deep in your heart
you can't accept that you're living apart

water runs down through the river
lord you are the only to deliver
night: stay night

in the night's nothing is white
now a knowledge not a light
lord, will you tell me why someday

fairytale - life is one big fairytale
a book of seven seals
someone tell me why and how

I'm always told to kneel down and pray
What shall I do to stay on my way
Questions borrow through my brain
pound and disturb and drive me insane

Lost in visions of knowledge I'll never owe
night to night

(choir of the damned smurfs of death)

in the night's nothing is white
now a knowledge not a light
lord, will you tell me why someday

Tell me what is time - yeah
8. Walk On Fighting (4:46)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet & Edguy]

The ivory is cold. Where is my desire
In a cage of gold, not a trace of fire
Eyes cold as ice. I'm heading for tomorrow
I am tired of waiting. I?l beg and steal and borrow
Life is to short to be wasted
So why do I sit around
Dance on the edge of a razor
Get off the ground and I'll never return

Walk on fighting
Don't look ever back
Walk on fighting
Don't you look back to your cries

The phone it waits in silence. No message left by you
There is no use in crying. I know I've been a fool
Now it is too late. No words left to say
I gotta call it fate, forget and look away

Life is to short to be wasted
So why do I sit around
Dance on the edge of a razor
Get off the ground and I'll never return

Walk on fighting
Don't look ever back
Walk on fighting
Don't you look back to your cries

Walk on fighting...
9. Tomorrow (3:53)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

Another dawn in coming
a new day has begun
An eagle is rising slowly to the skies of no return
disappearing in the growing sun
so proud and so beautiful
thinking about tomorrow with tears in his eyes
Once a lot of brothers spread their wings to join his way
Now he's left alone in a world of lies

Cry for tomorrow
Why don't we hear the eagles cries
Living in sorrow
Why don't we help him to survive

Once a dignity- a mighty sign of pride
Strong and proud and free
A symbol of eternity. why don't we see
we can't survive, if we don't realize
our world is a place that can't be created twice
10. No More Foolin' (4:55)
[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet & Edguy]

Fair sex paralyzer. Lipstick in a face
spirit a**lyzer, not one human trace
no need to cry
rool the fuckin' dice, I'm a loser in a game
gonna hurt my feelings, your only real aim
feels like I die

You can play nice you get satisfied when you win
I see a smile of truth but I can't stare within
riot in your soul

No more foolin'
you will save all your love
no more foolin'
you will save all your love

Say goodbye- say goodbye
you never know that I was strong enough to stand
All alone on my own I don't need your hand

Got your weapons loaded, your target in your sight
why don't you only tell me, that I shall fuckin' die

Looking so attractive, wanna get me active
but you never realized that I have got the tactics
I'm much too cool, much too large to be fooled
by your lies

You can play nice you get satisfied when you win
I see a smile of truth but I can't stare within
riot in your soul

Say goodbye- say goodbye
you never know that I was strong enough to stand
All alone on my own I don't need your hand

Say goodbye- say goodbye
11. Hymn (Ultravox cover) (4:53)
[music & lyrics: Ultravox]

Give us this day all that you showed me
The faith and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory till my kingdom comes

And they say that in our time
All that's good will fall from grace
Even saints would turn their face
In our time
And they told us that in our days
Different words said in different ways
Have other meanings from he who says
In our time

Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory till my kingdom comes

And they say that in our time
We would reap from their legacy
We would learn from what they had seen
In our time
And they told us that in our days
We would know what was high on high
We would follow and not defy
In our time

Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory till my kingdom comes

Faithless in faith
We must behold the things we see

Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory till my kingdom comes

Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory till my kingdom comes

Give us this day all that you showed me
The power and the glory, till my kingdom comes
Give me all the storybook told me
The faith and the glory till my kingdom comes
12. But Here I Am (Japanese bonus track) (4:34)
Always listen to what they tell - Dreamer
Crazy habits are a work of hell - Dreamer
Dressed in black and ordinary suits - Dreamer
All my life I have paid my dues - Goodbye

But here I am
To go my way
But here I am
I am sick of being here to pay

Never try to understand - Dreamer
What I do and what I can - Dreamer
Making love in the middle of a street - Dramer
Let them talk about how we treat ourselves - That's right

But here I am
To go my way
But here I am
I am sick of being here to stay
