Where Legend Began Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level FTN
1. Trauma (1:54)
(Instrumental)
2. The Eye of Shamahn (4:48)
Armed in your search for the messenger of death
Only with fortune, a gift from the gods
Your quest ends in the land of lost souls
You must return with the saviour of all

On into a time thet you cannot see
Do you know your fate?
Warrior of hope set the standard high
Let your people live
What awaits you there?
Maybe certain death, but you must go on
Messenger of death, keeper of the Eye
Stolen from the gods

Feel fear in your quest for the Eye of Shamahn

Now you should know the all evil awaits
Terror on the plains faced by demons from Hell
Look at their eyes they will turn you to stone
Reaching for the end in a world of your own

On into a time thet you cannot see
Do you know your fate?
Warrior of hope set the standard high
Let your people live
What awaits you there?
Maybe certain death, but you must go on
Messenger of death, keeper of the Eye
Stolen from the gods

Feel fear in your quest for the Eye of Shamahn

Out from the gates disappear in night sky
Onto the plains in your quest for the Eye
Treasures and wealth waiting on your return
To redeem the stone of which all your land yearns

On into a time thet you cannot see
Do you know your fate?
Warrior of hope set the standard high
Let your people live
What awaits you there?
Maybe certain death, but you must go on
Messenger of death, keeper of the Eye
Stolen from the gods

Feel fear in your quest for the Eye of Shamahn

Speed on your way, the people will pray
For your arrival back home with the saviour of the Eye
Call on your powers, only in your darkest hours
The symbol of the Eye decides wether your people die
3. Enter the Domain (5:12)
Riding alone, sent out with fear for my life to the unknown
Ritual below, summoning the forces of darkness
Beware
Enter the domain

Blood, fire, soul and desire
The spell, wizardry, is cast for me

Strange apparition spitting with hatred before my eyes
Deadly creation evil related attacks from the sky
Fighting with Talon, and aided by fire, destroyer from Hell
Sent from below, the creature has orders to capture my soul

I enter the domain
To fight with all my strenght
I must kill or be slain
I must outrun the messenger of death

As quickly as it came, the creature disappears from sight
To return to the astral planes of
Blood, fire, soul and desire

Searching the remains, I feel fingers of ice on my spine
He is with me!
Silent as the night, creeps up like a sunset behind
I see the "D"!

Blood, fire, soul and desire
Death, sorcery, was cast for me

Carved into the hillside
A letter ten feet high
Made by hands from down below
Of warning death is nigh

First of five to mystify
Second must be blind
Must attempt to hide my eyes
On gods I rely

Look and see, he has come for me
Now I must ride into the wilds
To be alone and end my quest
Win back the stone, or lose to death

I entered the domain
To fought with all my strenght
I killed and I remain
One step ahead of death
4. Premonition (5:58)
And now the messenger sees all
He is awaiting my death
World domination in his hand
To rule the kingdom called Earth
But I have foresight!

I see the downfall of evil
The dying of death
In spirit always he's with me
Although he can do no harm

I see in front of me the paradise of men's desires
Entry is barred for me, a sentinel, the guard in the night

His guard falls, the warrior beaten
Death brings a sickening blow
With stealth I enter the temple
Under the single white light
A dying old man!

He speaks and warns me of danger, but also of a choice

He offers me the whole temple
To be passed on before his death
But warns that fantasy will keep me there
Until my last breath

If I decide to try, my fantasy's the first in my head
With me, for eternity, it's tempting me, I cannot be led

The old man is dying and I must choose
Between desire and heart
He dies with one premonition
That I will live in my quest
And defeat the undead!

And so into the sun I ride
With foresight I'm led

Now armed with power in my mind
I now have equalled the score
The demons will have to face me
And learn to live by my law

Hear me, my enemy bow down to me, or prepare to die
Fight me, and you will see my victroy, I will rule the night
5. Calm Before the Storm (5:05)
Safety I can feel
Darkness seems so far away
Sleep at last reveals
The dawning of another day
Awoken by the sound
A fire demon in front of me
Lightning hits the ground
Razes grass where I just lay

Calm, they say, comes before the storm
Like pride, they say, comes before the fall
Ride with me, experience it all

My sword is turned to ash
By terror I am seized
Sprinkled all around
Forms into and "E"
I call upon my powers
Oh gods don't let me die
Magic spell is cast
The demon's vanished from the sky

Calm, they say, comes before the storm
Like pride, they say, comes before the fall
Ride with me, experience it all

The powers helped me survive
With mercy for my cause
The demon disappeared before my eyes
Yet death got his reward
The second now I have seen
Burned deep upon my soul
Three, four, five lay in surprise
My eyes must not behold

Calm, they say, comes before the storm
Like pride, they say, comes before the fall
Ride with me, experience it all
6. Flashback (4:11)
Deep inside my thoughts I can sense that it is time
To search my soul for answers and ask questions of my mind
So far I have eluded the hunter, yet I must remind myself
That I have seen what others now see through dead eyes

Onward for the stone, or let my people die
Choose safety of home, or venture for the Eye

I have faced the demons who struck terror upon my soul
I have seen two letters, three more an I behold
The coming of the messenger, his spirit to steal mine
Fortune smiles upon me, now my help is divine

To restore the balance of eternity
The stone must be returned
Before the final day

If the force of darkness still retains the stone
When the time arrives of the universe is one
Death and Armageddon will rule for eternity
Clouds of black will signal the end for you and me

Do what my heart believes
Try to retrieve the stone
Now only living for
Triumphant return home

Snapped out of my dream
Rock face seems to come alive
Burning like and ember
I stand up to defy
Face is coming at me
Human I can't say
Beaming from its foerhead
It can't be, it's an "A"
7. A Tomb of Traveler's Past (5:08)
Rockhead comes crushing down
I blackout to reveal myself
In a cave littered with bones
This must be the ultimate warning of the dangers

This tomb, a graveyard of traveler's past
Warriors sent before me, their bones are now dust

Torches light the wall and I read:
At the end of the river red
Through the valley of eternal light
Enter the forest of the living dead
Past the creatures of the night

There you will follow the path
Which will lead to the mountain of stone
You must collect on your way
The herb and then you must pay
The keeper of the gate
Then solve the mystery of handless three
If your heart and soul stray
The guardians have no mercy

Behold, I approach the keeper of the gate
Upon this doors are handless three, only one will enter
If beyond your heart can see I will not prevent you

One is Courage
Two is Hope
Three is Born desire
Choose it well, to suit you mind
Or your life I'll require

I must use my powers
My mind contains the key
Thoughts say no to one and two
I must go for three

Gate unlocks
The guardian sleeps
The way is clear for me
8. Middle Earth (5:07)
Climbing higher and higher
The mountaintop grows ever near
Winding like a cobra
This dangerous way that I have to endure

Demons are awaiting
Their moment to conquer the world
Their ritual beginning
Deep inside of Middle Earth

Two suns nearly meeting
To cast the light in the dark
The stone is preparing
To be used for evil, there's no turning back

I look and I see
The altar, the prison for the Eye
But then, to my horror
The entrance of evil is shaped as a "T"

Four I have seen now, but my will is strong
Fight for my homeland, I must go on
Feeling the strength of the souls that rely on me

I throw caution to the wind
In a last attempt for the stone
Demons separate, there he stands
The messenger, against me on my own
