Kurt of Koppigen Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Intro (1:36)
2. Before the Storm (7:40)
If you think the forest is a mystic place for relaxing
then you are wrong... the forest of Koppigen...
I've been told... this story began on cloudy summernight...
the night before the storm

Before the storm began to break
I walked slowly through this place
leaves whispering in the clouds of trees
it's 1998 and lightning craks near

Before the storm... it's 1998 and I feel fear

[Chorus]
But now, I am struck by a bolt,
deep in my brain, deep in my memories
lost alone in the storm surrounded by lightning
caught in my body and my soul

I feel my body to decompose,
just a little angel pose
climbing plants grab me by the hands...
down in a hole - back in this time

[Chorus]

I wake up, I can't hear the sound of the freeway
where, where, where in God's name am I?
awake in a land filled with scents,
where the good old sagas have been told
from far away a rider comes to me
I think I know him... Kurt was his name

[Chorus]

back in 1298
3. Kurt of Koppigen (4:52)
I am a king hallowed by my name
in this little village here
my mother said to me you're just an errand boy
and the church is the losers frontiers

[Chorus]
This silent rage, that makes me brave
and takes me to the holy grave
it's the history of Kurt

And let me hunt in the country of Bern
I want to fight so strong
bring me to the Gods
but my problem is, I have to be alone

[Chorus]
This silent rage, that makes me brave
and takes me to the holy grave
it's the history of Kurt

Alone... so strong... I want to be a king
and in his mind he went back in time
a name of the brave... back... into the fantasy

And let me hunt in the country of Bern
I want to fight so strong
bring me to the Gods
but my problem is, I have to be alone

[Chorus]
This silent rage, that makes me brave
and takes me to the holy grave
it's the history of Kurt
4. Grimhilde (4:55)
In holy lands beneath the sun
where the floers rise in spring
lives my mother on the holy throne,
she wants to be the queen

The queen over darkness and hate
and creatures of the night
but I will think it's too late
your life goes ever on and on

[Pre]
Out from the door where it began
No far ahead your life has gone

[Chorus]
but she can see deeper in your soul,
and she can take, the illusions in your soul
but she can see deeper in your soul,
she takes the illusions in your soul... illusions in your soul

Through here at journey's end she lies in the dark, so deep,
believe in God, it is too late, I hope she dies
above all shadows rides the sun,
where the stars forever dwell,
I will not say your life is done, but it is still too late

[Chorus]

[Swiss-German]

Bosheit roubt dir dini Seeu
Hingerlischt stiuht dir di Verstang
für Goud u Stuber, für das machsch aus
sogar vor em Töte mauchsch du nit haut

In holy lands beneath the sun
whee the flowers rise in spring
lives my mother on the holy throne,
she wants to be the queen

[Chorus]
5. The Dragonslayer (7:40)
Just like a spider in the web with its flies
down through the forest of the Aare-Valley
a hunter, a vagabond of the lies
from Solothurn to Huttwil the king of the thieves

The dragonslayer he'd like to be
evil is his destiny

A hunter, a lord of the night
a vagabond and a king of the lies
a hunter, a lord of the night
a vagabond and a king of the lies

Just like the wolves hungry for flesh
this man is so hungry for cash
a sword in his hand - destroy and destruction
he wants to be a king of corruption

The dragonslayer he'd like to be
evil is his destiny

A hunter, a lord of the night
a vagabond and a king of the lies
a hunter, a lord of the night
a vagabond and a king of the lies

A dream of luck for all his time
freedom, glory and o crime

[Chorus]
In memory of a dragonslayer
In memory of a dragonheart
ohhohohohohoho...
In memory of a dragonheart
6. The Lord of Halten (5:17)
This is the story of the lord of Halten
this is another chapter of this book

Wherever I've been lost in the sky, felt the inmortality
Whenever I've forgotten the lights, the dark tower of reality (x2)

Top of the tower near the forest of Koppigen, the lord of Halten on his hill
with seven daughters by his side, takes him to the holy pride
the crown of Halten for a man, a hero, to be the king of the Wasseramt
the rising sun waits for the command, to be the king of this land

[Pre]
take his crown in your hands
let him be the lord of this land

With the scepter of power like the water for flowers
my sword takes me on his side
with the power of glory like the poison of beauty
the mirror of love takes me on its way

[Chorus]
The lord of Halten down in the rising sun
The lord of Halten when the twilight has begun

...in the morning sun

Top of the tower near the forest of Koppigen, the lord of Halten on his hill
with seven daughters by his side, takes him to the holy pride
the crown of Halten for a man, a hero, to be the king of the Wasseramt
the rising sun waits for the command, to be the king of this land

[Pre]

[Chorus]
7. Ambush in Langenthal (5:42)
Illusion that I see (so dark so deep)
so dark and so deep (so dark so deep)
illusion in my soul (There are illusions in my soul)

Into battle we ride (we ride we ride)
and go to find the dangerous signs
and feel the neverending pride (and feel the neverending pride)

The lost part of my life
no tears and no more cries ( no tears no cries)
please God help me tonight (please God help me tonight )

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
my blood is frozen in my veins
my heart is red from all my sins
my eyes are hungry, all the pain
from the ambush of Longvalley

Oh lord, here I stand (falls at dawn)
and the light falls at dawn (falls at dawn)
and my battle in Longvalley ends (and my battle in Longvalley ends)

a swordstroke deep in my back
puts me into a trance (intop a trance)
to the dark and deepest romance (to the dark and deepest romance)

[Chorus]
my blood is frozen in my veins
my heart is red from all my sins
my eyes are hungry, all the pain
from the ambush of Longvalley
8. Song of Agnes (4:08)
Silent in the darkness of mystic
when I travel through the dark
on my way to Önz by the forest
to find a girl so strong in love

Swordstrokes I feel, careless to me

A dream of a wife
the crowning to my life

Born in a house near by the forest
Where the honoured lords want to live
in the middle of a trade route
where the hill begin to fall

Swordstrokes I feel, careless to me

[Chorus]
This is the tale of a girl like a nightingale
this was the night, when my heart began to break
beware the sign of Agnes' song

Born in a house near by the forest
Where the honoured lords want to live
in the middle of a trade route
where the hill begin to fall

Swordstrokes I feel, careless to me

[Chorus]
This is the tale of a girl like a nightingale
this was the night, when my heart began to break
beware the sign of Agnes' song
9. Distant Sky or the Wild Hunt (6:50)
In this place, far from home to me
blood in my body, faces in my souls
destiny is my reality of the daylight
behind me on my horse, the wild hunt is near

Went the footprints of malice follow your soul
then you will think it's too late
when the faces of your enemies in the fog
start to hunt you
look up and see the distant sky

[Chorus]
This is the point in Kurts life,
when his mind is shinning bright
take a dream of a holy world,
Bachtelenbrunnen is the point of a new return

Oh, oh, oh, lost in the sky
lost, lost in the fog of faith
forgotten resolutions are destryed in my soul
please God, help me tonight, the wild hunt will kill me
the wild hunt is just in my mind...
The rrots of regret are deep in Kurt and take him to another lord
the meaning of life under control

In this place, far from home to me
blood in my body, faces in my souls
destiny is my reality of the daylight
behind me on my horse, the wild hunt is near

[Swiss-German]
Wart nid ab, wart nid ab... wenn's z'spät isch, isch's z'pat...

Went the footprints of malice follow your soul
then you will think it's too late
when the faces of your enemies in the fog
start to hunt you
look up and see the distant sky
10. The Lost Chapter (6:03)
I am running out of time, so Kurt can't sleep tonight
the lost chapter begins to end, the message of heaven starts to send
don't believe what you hear, believe what you feel
then I know what is real... and thew lost chapter begins to end

Don't look in the heart of strangers, eyes of the evil
the last of the secrets of Gods, dragons fly again, no tears and no pain
with the angels to heaven again
what is real in my soul, open the pages at chapter one
never take... this way before... somebody's just open the doors

[Pre]
Like the signs of the silver shadows
like the moonshine in the night
like the graves on the old green meadows
this part of the lost chapter starts to send

I hear for an answer to all, the things in my life...
it takes me back to childhood again
the voice of my mother, feel the tears of my father
I hate you, I hate you again

[Pre]

[Chorus]
I feel the moment to say goodbye, hope and fear performed my mind
what will follow when I must die, the lost chapter, darkness... the light

Now are coming my ancient days, my raimbow turns to dark
this is the end of all my ways, the circle of life closes the curse
...and the lost chapter begins to end

Don't look in the heart of strangers, eyes of the evil
the last of the secrets of Gods, dragons fly again, no tears and no pain
with the angels to heaven again
what is real in my soul, open the pages at chapter one
never take... this way before... somebody's just open the doors
11. Baphomet's Oath or Just a Dream / Outro (11:44)
A broken sword is the last sign
that I dream, when I wake up in the present time
in Koppigen stand ruins
shadows of the templar in my dreams
and the stone which we can't find

[Pre]
A word, a light, one secret mind
a sign, a lord and the broken sword
that is the last thing I will find

...was the dream that I feel
the lost secret dream, was the dream that I feel

[Chorus]
Just dreaming we're inside
with Baphomet's oath
these are the only tales
and they take us back to Kurt's time
with Baphomet's oath

[Solo parts]

A broken sword is the last sign
that I dream, when I wake up in the present time
in Koppigen stand ruins
shadows of the templar in my dreams
and the stone which we can't find

[Pre]

[Chorus]
Just dreaming we're inside
with Baphomet's oath
these are the only tales
and they take us back to Kurt's time
with Baphomet's oath
