The Winter Wake Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Trows Kind (5:57)
[Music / Lyrics: Aydan]

Concealed from the view
Hidden from the knowledge of Men
A little kind through trees it lives
Nymphs of dark and lust
"Fairy of bad fate!"
Somebody tells he has seen
Some of the little ones
Some even that have talked with them
So nice and handsome
"Please, don't be such a fool!
Tell everyone that the witches come tonight"

[Bridge:]
Desire grows, denial howls
Your will has gone
"Divine the wicked multitude
Worship your servitude"
Enthroned and ringed with gold
Of the mighty old oak
I'm on the lightness side

[Chorus:]
Daughters and sons
There are times to carry on,
All my life for you
Keep on singing my tale
Deny the Trows kind
Don't you dare to stay behind?
Through years and centuries,
Through myth and poetry
Our race's slowly dying
In the heart of mankind
Deep in the woods
They're dressed with the fruits of earth
Arcane adorers of the roots
Dance Henking tonight
"Fairy of bad fate!"
Vanishing through branches
Followed by the Redcaps
They´re greedy for silver and gold

[Bridge and chorus]

Trapped in a web of branches and leaves dead
You hear voices reciting a prayer...
Come nearer and see!
"Hare hare good sent the care
I am in a haire likeness, just see me there
But I shall be in a woman's likeness soon"
2. Swallowtail (4:26)
[Music / Lyrics: Damnagoras]

"Brimstone eyes she hath,
Black in colour looking sad
The hair like straw, her skin so raw...
A debauchery decadent"
Grandmother used to tell
"beware do not go near the hut - I say!"
It was believed to be the home of a witch
- a house left in decay

[Bridge:]
They speakest alright
'Cause I went one night
And saw the old house
Ivy all around
Suddenly I was bound
And fell in darkness
People brave enough went
And faced the things they said
They never came back, neither to be,
Sorry for their misbelieve
Only pieces of their bodies hanging up
On the strangest trees they found
Forming shapes that may have linked
To whom the parts belonged in a whole lifetime

[Bridge]

[Chorus:]
In her arms you'll crackle like fire
In the night you'll see her Swallowtail
When she's near you'll hear hell's choirs
Run (as) fast as you can, right in the arms of the unknown
Swallowtail Swallowtail
They told me that your evil would prevail on me,
But now I know you are not what they say
Swallowtail Swallowtail
Your beauty comes like sunshine after rain, so warm,
An unexpected spark to wash away the dark
She was supposed to be so old, deceitful,
Not deceivable
Death she'd exhale from her never
Ending rings hanging on her nose

[Bridge:]
They speakest no right
'Cause I went one night
And saw the old house
Butterflies around
Suddenly I was bound
And fell in beauty

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2:]
All the things they told me - liars!
All because she is too beautiful
I know I won't go back 'cause
At the end I'll be a butterfly
Swallowtail Swallowtail...
Swallowtail Swallowtail...
3. The Winter Wake (4:19)
[Music / Lyrics: Aydan]

[Feat. Schmier of Destruction]

As the lights are growing dim
Freezing cold, slowly is fading in
Another Winter night will hold this wicked soul
I will wait for the new Sun to rise
Blind in darkness, witness my demise
Another Winter night is so long...

[Bridge:]
The lands are dressed in the purest white
Pure as I was and I am no more

[Chorus:]
The ones of you who are free of guilt
Wound me with your stones and then step in
Buried in the whitest snow I will suddenly awake
The winter wake
As the steps are leaving trails
Of the side of me I hate
This is the Night when I will face all my disgrace
Cover me, cover all that I see
A little light flake for your heart and the sea
A single flake for all the good ones...

[Bridge:]
The lands are dressed in the purest white
Pure as I was and I am no more

[Chorus:]
The ones of you who are free of guilt
Wound me with your stones and then step in
Buried in the whitest snow I will suddenly awake
The winter wake

[Chorus 2:]
I spent my time gazing at the stars
As silently it snows inside my heart
Someone said that life brings and then takes
The winter wake
4. The Wanderer (4:54)
[Music / Lyrics: Aydan]

[Chorus:]
A slight call afar is tempting me
Like a whisper sweet or an awful scream
I cannot ignore what I've always been
I am leaving again - one last time?
Laid on the pale scythe of the Moon
I play with stars around me
The elvendom is now calling out my name
My fairy and I are wandering through times
And stories forgotten, some old fairytales
Of wizards of Oz, of lost keys and gardens
Hiding secret doors that lead to a dream
For those who believe there's always a door to get in

[Chorus:]
A slight call afar is tempting me
Like a whisper sweet or an awful scream
I cannot ignore what I've always been
I am leaving again - one last time?
In my little kingdom I can be what I really
Wanted to be - The wanderer
I'm hearing scratches at my door
Somebody wants me again
Some little creatures will be my fellows
My demon and I are playing
Some wicked games I should not play, not fair to be played
Don't tell anyone the place where I'm going
'cause they won't believe - This time I don't know
If I'll ever return, say goodbye for me to my home

[Chorus:]
A slight call afar is tempting me
Like a whisper sweet or an awful scream
I cannot ignore what I've always been
I am leaving again - one last time?
In my little kingdom I can be what I really
Wanted to be - The wanderer
5. March of Fools (5:46)
[Music / Lyrics: Aydan]

I look around myself I´m feeling like a stranger to this world
Where are the friends once I got (as) I used to know
No trace of common sense, a dash of a normal sanity
I wonder: "Are they all mad? ... Or is it me?

[Chorus:]
Thousands years have passed and nothing gonna change
Marching the plains as loud as hell they´re coming
Drawn up in lines, proud their eyes, the army of the fools
Ruling the thrones, it conquered and won
I´m getting older
Maybe I don´t recognize, I´m yet too old
For all this mind-blowing fair of insanity
When I was a kid I promised to myself I´d never grow up
But now wiser a bit I can sense!

[Chorus:]
Thousands years have passed and nothing gonna change
Marching the plains as loud as hell they´re coming
Drawn up in lines, proud their eyes, the army of the fools
Ruling the thrones, it conquered and won
Follow me, don´t promise to be
What you never had thought you´d have wanted to be
Tell me I´m wrong but I follow myself
And the dreams that I´ve lived since I was born

[Chorus:]
Thousands years have passed and nothing gonna change
Marching the plains as loud as hell they´re coming
Drawn up in lines, proud their eyes, the army of the fools
Ruling the thrones, it conquered and won
6. On the Morning Dew (3:30)
[Music / Lyrics: Aydan]

At the border of the plain where suddenly the forest dies
On the first day of the season
When the moon will shine full in the sky
I will wait for you there bathed by a magic light
I will wait, I will pray for this moment to become alive
For this night I will see as an elf clad in leaves
You´re going to see myself the fairy of your secret dreams
Even if all this belongs to worlds of fantasy
For this time, only this night everything is fair, belongs to me
One night fantasy...

[Chorus:]
Live my every breath, my every touch, my every single sigh
Seizing hold of every glance
As the day´s passing by begins a wonderful sight
Dancing on the moment dew, the dawn has come only for you
I look up at the sky for the stars to be my guide
At the border of the plain where suddenly the forest dies
On the first day of the season
When the moon will shine full in the sky
I waited for you there bathed by a magic light
I have waited, I have prayed and this moment has become alive
One night fantasy...

[Chorus:]
Live my every breath, my every touch, my every single sigh
Seizing hold of every glance
As the day´s passing by begins a wonderful sight
Dancing on the moment dew, the dawn has come only for you
I look up at the sky for the stars to be my guide
7. Devil's Carriage (4:04)
[Music / Lyrics: Damnagoras]

On a hill, on the devil´s top
There is a man hiding in the shadows of the night
He´s trying to stop the course of time
The line dividing good from wrong
There is more than meets the eye
In this world full of lies and death
The devil´s carriage is leading all the souls to a place so far away

[Bridge:]
You can´t deny your innocence!
Your life won´t be forever
You should show your nicest part
You are the one who cries

[Bridge 2:]
You will see
What you have never seen
In the afterlife you know you will forever be
At the fair, in the dragon´s lair
You won´t be safe ´cause the red driver´s waiting there
He will be taking you through a nightmare you have never had before

[Bridge:]
You can´t deny your innocence!
Your life won´t be forever
You should show your nicest part
You are the one who cries

[Bridge 2:]
You will see
What you have never seen
In the afterlife you know you will forever be

[Chorus:]
The devil´s carriage ride
It´s a trip to the other side
All it´s said and done
Won´t count a single word
Been taken in the devil´s care
You´ve never been a step downstairs
But you have to know
It´s gonna happen here and now...
It´s your future and watch out
´Cause the devil´s carriage´s running on and on!
At the fair, in the dragon´s lair
You won´t be safe ´cause the red driver´s waiting there
He will be taking you through a nightmare you have never had before
At the sight of this dark fright night
He came and took another soul
Bleeding all it´s light
And from the coach the sound of laughter, of laughter
8. Rats are Following (4:37)
[Music: Damnagoras, Aydan, Lyrics: Damnagoras]

Find out some poetry...
The topic must be: Love and happiness
So easy to write, so easy to spell
Find out a melody...
That your brain won´t forget
So come out and play, don´t be upset

[Bridge:]
The roads in the night, plagued by desolation
Are waiting for you...
So sing us your song!
They dance!

[Chorus:]
The rats are following
Follow the melody
It must be quiet and simple or you´ll overload their heads
Rats are following
Follow the melody
It must be quiet and simple or you´ll overload their heads
Find out a remedy...
To their unconditioned way of bothering
So harmless for you, so deadly to them
The lowelest symphony...
A joke to your hears will fly like a vulture
And will show them their worst side

[Bridge:]
The roads in the night, plagued by desolation
Are waiting for you...
Delight us with your song!
They dance!

[Chorus:]
The rats are following
Follow the melody
It must be quiet and simple or you´ll overload their heads
Rats are following
Follow the melody
It must be quiet and simple or you´ll overload their heads
Like a storm from the sky is falling
We want to hear this sweet warm melody
With havoc, rapture, crawling
We will embrace its every single note
There the vulture, dying, falling
We´d like to hear (it) but this is just the end

[Chorus:]
The rats are following
Follow the melody
It must be quiet and simple or you´ll overload their heads
Rats are following
Follow the melody
It must be quiet and simple or you´ll overload their heads
9. Rouse Your Dream (4:48)
[Music / Lyrics: Aydan]

Listen yourself talking words meaningless
Listen, where are the emotions you feel?
Take a look into yourself for a while
What you see doesn´t scare you at all?

[Bridge:]
Balance on the edge of what´s wrong and what is nothing but
A different way to see things as they are
Please, don´t go astray
On our way through seas we go

[Chorus:]
For every single day you live
For every fragment of your broken dream
This night is so evanescing
- Rouse your rocking
All the times they told that you were wrong
There´ve been reason to be strong
Start again and find you way to live
- Rouse your dream
Don´t let anyone walk over your dreams
Listen, don´t let them fall on your path
If they do I will be one meter behind
I´ll pick up and dean them for you

[Bridge:]
Waiting for a life a single reason to feel
You´re not surviving, tell me how I´ll recognize?
It´s in front of you
Don´t look back, there´s no return

[Chorus:]
For every single day you live
For every fragment of your broken dream
This night is so evanescing
- Rouse your rocking
All the times they told that you were wrong
There´ve been reason to be strong
Start again and find you way to live
- Rouse your dream
10. Neverending Nights (7:01)
[Music / Lyrics: Damnagoras]

I can see them running towards me
All the time they steal my dreams
The ghosts of past and sorrow
All the time they steal my dreams
When I take a walk outside, whispers will surround my head
I can hear the echo of my voice, a hundred times or more
They shout, they carry on
They whisper on my sorrow
They shout all night long
But the whispers will not end
And the whispers will not end
The ghost of past is showing me all the good times that have gone
- Now just a shadow on the wall
The rose is, so fragile, but still so everlasting
The ghost of sorrow is recalling all the damage done
Now just a brick off from the wall
The rose is so strong but
It won´t be ´till the end, NO!
I can see them running towards me
All the time they steal my dreams
The ghosts of past and sorrow
All the time they steal my dreams
When I take a walk outside, whispers will surround my head
I can hear the echo of my voice, a hundred times or more
They shout, they carry on
They whisper on my sorrow
They shout all night long
But the whispers will not end
And the whispers will not end
The ghost of past is showing me all the good times that have gone
- Now just a shadow on the wall
The rose is, so fragile, but still so everlasting
The ghost of sorrow is recalling all the damage done
Now just a brick off from the wall
The roses, so fragile, forever will fade away with the tide of life
But this night will hold them on!

[Chorus:]
Oh, I want to see when I was a child
All the emotions, the smiles and the cries
Now that I see, never it hides, the neverending nights
Remember the flash, the crowd was no more
A light that surrounds you, never before
Now that I see, never it hides, the neverending nights
At the end of this horrid night, whispers stopped to haunt my dreams
All emotions cast inside my mind, a hundred times or more... no more...
11. Disillusion's Reel (2:19)
[Music / Lyrics: Damnagoras]

Every time I try to understand
The meaning hiddendep into my heart
I crumble down the taste of losing all
Is always bitter when I sip from my cold blood

[Bridge:]
Losing what when there is nothing much to gain?
Stop yourself and have a thought
Watch your life

[Chorus:]
Mother earth is there, emotionless to your eyes
You can love her sons, but at the end you´re all alone
Come and dance this reel, disillusion´s for real
Stop yourself for god´s sake, try to take a look at yourself
How can you pretend of having my faith
Of gaining all the respect and the love that I can give
I even hardly believe in myself
Where is the tunnel white, they told me of?

[Bridge:]
Losing what when there is nothing much to gain?
Stop yourself and have a thought
Watch your life

[Chorus:]
Mother earth is there, emotionless to your eyes
You can love her sons, but at the end you´re all alone
Come and dance this reel, disillusion´s for real
Stop yourself for god´s sake, try to take a look at yourself
