The standing stone Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Yleitig (3:18)
2. Soldiers of Heaven (5:32)
We saw the fear in the enemy's eyes,
We feel the confusion in other minds

[Bridge 1]
Still we don't turn away, fighting for death and glory
In the lands of the kingdom of the raven,
Still we don't turn away, now we will tell a story
We are the soldiers of heaven

We are the men, we are dying for gold
They are the unholy, the sacrifice their soul

[Bridge 2]
A long day will come, the day you set me free,
A long day will come, in a land across the sea,

[Pre-Refrain]
This is the time for immortality,
This is the place for eternity,
Oh voices

[Refrain]
Brave and faithfull in war and in peace,
Guardians for all this times,
With armour and sword and never on our knees,
Keepers of the the sacred lines.

All your life you where serving willingly,
Fighting the darkness for eternity,

[Bridge 1]
...heaven

[Middlepart]
Dr ruhm wird cho, u d ehr blibt nid schto,
mir wandere i nes land, fasch ringsume Strand.
The glory will come,(we) will never be gone
Travelling in your land, for keeping your hands.
Travelling through your land to keep our hands
3. The March (9:02)
[Chorus]
Across the rivers, across the lakes, over the mountains, without a break
Across the meadows, trough forests, trough the valley like a quest,
The march begins, the march for the right, the march through the darkest night,
Across the rivers, across the lakes
Across the meadows, trough the forests,

Looking up to the sky, acid rain burning in my eyes.
On a path, the journey takes us south to where the sun will rise

[Bridge 1]
fading moon in the sky is what they talk about,
Why are we destined to wander throught time, let the dreams come true

[Chorus]
Across rivers, across lakes,
Across meadows, trough forests,

Stories are made to be told, here is one that I know
Too many nights without days, too many days we were lost

[Bridge 1]
fading moon in the sky is what they talk about,
Why are we destined to wander throught time, let the dreams come true

[Middlepart:]
Zoberscht uf däm Hügu, warte ufs Zeiche ir Nacht,
wärde dänke, wie mängi Schtunge, mir furt si üsre Stadt!

[Solo]

Looking up to the sky, acid rain burning in my eyes.
On a path, the journey takes us south to where the sun will rise

[Bridge 1]

[Chorus]
4. For Death and Glory (8:21)
[Chorus]
For death and glory, for sun and rain
Living without midnight and no more pain

Death and glory

When the stars begin to fall when the way begins to end,
Open your eyes and look around, somewhere in this land,
moments of magic as we are standing behind the shadows of this wall,
Banners flying so high, horns begin to play

[Bridge]
We are standing here, face to face
Like thieves in the night, sword by sword
We are standing here, face to face,
Like thieves in the night, sword by sword,
at the will of a lord, for honour and gold
Royal dignity...

Have you ever flown so high on the wings of hope?
Have you never broken the rules for cross and robe?
for cross and robe

[Chorus]
For death and glory, for sun and rain
Living without midnight and the end of the pain

moments of magic as we are standing behind the shadows of this wall,
Banners flying so high, horns begin to play.

Läbe u Tod Sunne u Schnee
Füres Läbe nachem Tod, fürd Sunne nachem Schnee!

[Solo]
[Bridge]
[Chorus (two times)]

We die for you on this stony ground to the greatest sound of battle,
falling, we find no sleep, I give you my soul to keep,
Shining bright, the last golden night, we will take the lost way home
5. Lost Chamber (5:38)
I walk alone on the deadly line,
Over the bridge I ran,
Where my wife is waiting
Bearing the wounds in my soul

[Bridge]
I hear the voices in the night, Somewhere.. still he cries
feel my end is in the light, where the soldiers lie

[Chorus]
Sleeping in the haze of the morning sun
Sailing away, to where the sunlight comes from,
Sleeping in the haze of the morning sun
Like the wings of the dragon, where it all began

[Chorus]

I see where I've been in my live,
I said (that) I will never die again,
I see myself walking without fear,
My own chamber will be the last (thing I will see.)

[Bridge]
I hear the voices in the night, Somewhere.. still he cries,
feel my end is in the light, where the soldiers lie

[Chorus]
[Solo]

Sailing away, where the sunlight comes from.

[Chorus (two times)]
6. The Silent Song (6:27)
This is the silent song, close your eyes and tell me now,
hear the voices, the voices in your mind
What have your enemies done, with the lives they (have) counted on,
tell us what they (have) found, and tell us what they (have) found
They saw the clouds, they heard the thunders,
They feel the suffering in the wind

Wake up and find yourself,
brothers side by side,
your gave your swords to keep us alive,
we are falling down closer to the ground,
fight and die and I will follow now..

[Bridge I]
Life is nothing but the time of decay, take the ending path,
Endless skies behind nameless graves,
must be a brave.

Screams in the night, in a misty night,
welcome to the halls under the sky,
We are never going back, through the pages of the past,
now we wish the sky would say..

Would say, would say, would say...

[Chorus]
This is the silent song,
close your eyes and tell me now,
They saw the clouds,
they saw what your enemies have done
This is the silent song,
close your eyes and tell me now,
They saw the clouds,
they saw what your enemies have done

[Bridge I]

[Middlepart]

[Chorus II (two times)]
Illuminated skies "Liechtermeer",
somewhere in the night "i der nacht"
we must die "ha d Schtärne gseh",
somewhere in the light "I der schlacht"

[Solo]

[Intro-part]
This is the silent song,
close your eyes and tell me now,
hear the voices,
the voices in your mind

[Chorus]
7. The Siege (7:17)
[Chorus]
We're falling, we're running,
this is the endless calling,
We're fighting we're dying, now!
We're falling, we're running,
this is the endless calling,
We're fighting we're dying, now!

Tonight we fight, my brothers in arms, tonight my life is in your arms,
Born for the battle, born to the fight for the cross and for the right
Guardians in front of the line, before the sun will shine,
Guardians of the cross in the front line, before the sun will shine,
Soldiers, they came; soldiers, they did fall, we shall end them all!

[Bridge]
Oh Voices!
I breathe, feel my mind, I breathe, feel life,
I breathe, feel my mind, I breathe.. I am alive...

[Chorus]

Through the dark of night, I saw my brothers fall,
Behind the walls of this town, we're waiting for the fall,
And they told us we were winning, heroes of the forgotten time,
Thousands of my brothers must be gone, only 42 guardians in my lines

[Bridge]

[Bridge II]
memory of the forgotten souls, somewhere in this night,
memory of the forgotten sons, somewhere in this light,
In the memory of the forgotten sons, somewhere in this light,
Burg zum Schutz und ou gägs Füür, escape to the castle of angels,
Burg für üsi Lüt mit iserne Tür, escape to the castle of angels,

[Middlepart]
The Siege

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
8. Armour of Gods (7:56)
Pray..
As soldiers ravage the earth at night,
their swords and shields at to their side
The time has come for all of us,
To find the end where your must die

[Bridge:]
The king holds the cross to his eyes,
for his victory he's left behind
the king rides into the dark of the night,
Towards home, soldiers side by side

[Bridge 2]

[Chorus:]
Oh voices !!
oh lord, please come to me,
(and) give me the armour of gods,
one day you will see,
warriors in the armour of gods.

Time flies away, away from me
It has gotten out, out of reach,
The whole land is turning, I will survive,
Remember the tales, memories will keep us alive.

[Bridge]

[Middlepart]

As soldiers ravage the earth at night,
their swords and shields at to their side
The time has come for all of us,
To find the end where your must die

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
9. Standing Stone (7:09)
voices of freedom in the howling wind,
dragons fly free with their mystic wings
Strong and proud, banners at the top,
Somewhere on the endless rock

[Bridge]
This is the place, this is the grave,
Where my brothers lie

Horns and flutes speaking final words,
Its time to pray together with the lords
Heat and fire, the rage inside my head,
Children and wives, taking away their last bread

[Chorus:]
This is the place of the standing Stone in the middle of the street,
This is the place of the standing Stone in the middle of the street,
Fire, wind and thunder, nothing can destroy the holy stone,
Time, rain and soldiers, nothing can break the holy throne

I think of old times when I look into your eyes,
Remember the days we fought, sword in the hands,
follow the stars hovering darkness,
rage is so deep and the journey is endless

Soldiers are ready for die..

[Chorus]

[Middlepart]
Füür, Wind, sogar der Donner, nüt zerschtört dr heilig Schtey,
und mir kämpfe, bis es ändi vor Wäut, und ihr dänket, mir kämpfet für Gäut!

[Solo]

voices of freedom in the howling wind,
dragons fly free with their mystic wings
Strong and proud, banners at the top,
Somewhere on the endless rock

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
10. Fire (6:57)
Treasures, in the name of gods,
books of eternity, power of this words,
Faces,( the) mirror knows this crime,
(a) broken promise, one more time

[bridge:]
it's just the pain, just another day in (the) fire,
it's just another way,
it's just the pain, just another day in (the) fire,
it's just another way

why, there is a open flame
Burning in my soul, with endless pain,
I try, try another way,
Someone's king has to pay

[bridge]

[chorus:]
walk alone in the dark with you, in the shadows I run,
fight alone in the light with you, behind the clouds and the sun,
walk alone in the dark with you, in the shadows I run,
fight alone in the light with you, behind the clouds and the sun

Treasures, in the name of gods,
books of eternity power of this words,
Faces, (the) mirror knows this crime,
a broken promise, one more time

[Bridge]

[Middlepart]
Schtärbe...alleini ir nacht,
wärde...mir nit mit dir macht,
kämpfe...mit au üsre chraft,
üs ergänze...das s jede es schafft!
Schtärbe...alleini ir nacht, wärde...mir nit mit dir macht

why, there is a open flame
Burning in my soul, with endless pain,
I try, try another way,
Someone's king has to pay

[Bridge]
