The Fall of an Empire Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Endgame (1:16)
[intro]
2. The Fall of an Empire (5:55)
So much of our battle
and the freedom of Osyrhia
The darkness laid upon us
could never be undone

By the way of shadows from a thousand years
We'll see our kingdoms fall into darkness
Yet I tried relams now long forgotten
and the woods and plains of Siridian

All that was long beloved will be turned to dust when time comes by
The visions dance into the darkness of my mind
Thus will end our battle
and the freedom of Osyrhia

The dark lord undefeated
at least will get his time
What for all the fights and promises we've had
Have Gods deserted us, or was it the light?

[bridge:]
By my words I'm asking for Gods to guide me through the dark
I'll stand for all
The darkened dreams have called a freedom cry
as I've tried, and i tried

[chorus:]
The shining tears of sorrow fallen in these dreams
Were never mine
The fall of an empire raise a thousand screams
that never die
The shining tears of sorrow fallen in these dreams
Were never mine
The fall of an empire raise a thousand screams
Screams that never die

Since then we've marched through a desert of hope
and yet our passion remains
The longing will for the kingdoms we've lost here
The voice of heroes thunders again
through the land of our freedom, our land

Courage of all, and the shining of Light
But still the empire falls

[bridge]

[chorus]
3. Lost in the Dark Lands (6:01)
The power balance has failed
and death is stronger than us
The dark lord finally returns to Eldegrave
The nightmare came with that evil lord

The shadow falls on Osyrhia
We fighted with out might
No anger for the light
The shadow falls on Osyrhia

The endless walk through the night
where we belong at last
We're doomed to slavery
no one can save us now

Enter the kingdom of terror

[bridge:]
Till the end we will stand brave

[chorus:]
Lost in the dark lands where no one resists
The free men are enslaved, no light
Betrayed by chaos when hope turns to dust
The armies of freedom are lost

What will be our fate at the end of our path?
Will we be reduced to mere memories?
There's nothing now but despair
our lives were gambled and lost

The tower of destiny will decide our fate
The nightmare came with the evil lord
The shadow falls on Osyrhia, We fight with our might
No anger for the light

The shadow falls on Osyrhia
Blessed are the ones who died
for them all this is over
This pain is our price
for serving all we've loved

And shadow falls on Osyrhia
The kingdom is lost in the sands of time
Never turn you back on me again
Never turn you back on me again

Forlorn and lost
Suffering all day
The slaves forever bound to Eldergrave
Darkened shadows, fears unspoken

Thousand men lost in the dark lands
On the path to hell so many died

[bridge]

[chorus]

Never turn your back to see the lost friends on the field
They're lost...

[chorus]
4. Slaves Forlorn (1:11)
[instrumental]
5. The Awakening (4:50)
Mourning time has worn away
hope fulfills our dreams
Buried in time, deep in our minds
Heroes of our past will never fade away
oppressed we are, slaves in the dark
but yet we'll fight just to see another day

[bridge:]
Silently we cried in pain
fear was all we would know
Then hope came and changed us all

[chorus:]
Dead I was before your praise
lost and drowned into my pain
Now I am here back to life
To see the sun shine again
Ho I've waited long for another chance
With the God's light shining in my heart
Now that life flows in me again
I will fight till the end of my days

Gods have been right, hearing our cries
Fulfilling what's in our dreams and our faith
We are not bound to be the slaves of darkness
And darkness will be failed

[bridge]

[chorus]

Time has come to break the chains of pain
And our freedom will rejoice the heart of our cherished Gods
Darkness was noxious
in silence I went down the walls of the grave
Free from the power of Cenos
I prepare the time when surely comes the light divine
Never get lost in the dark for the light we shall sing
and be strong against the odds
Leave me now, leave me now leave me now Leave me alone
Shadows, terror, we were lost in the dark

[chorus x2]
6. Eldanie Uelle (5:21)
Once was a time, in the white desert cold
And a place she could call her own
Then came the darkness, fear, grievance and hate
From the hands of Gods, it's gone forever now

The dream of a man, and whisper of tears
all gone with the wind
Black endless night, in the shadows of hell
The fearful disk stood before the sun
so the lights of her father God shined not upon her land
In her castle of frost she swore for revenge

[bridge:]
Far to the north, the call of retaliation
Open up, wide the gates of Havenrod

[chorus:]
Solan has called the help of the one
over the frost where the white mountains lie
What will future be, in the shadows of a word?
To be a queen: an oath upon the sword
and a tale..
And the tale carries on

The ghost of a word, a promise unsaid a whisper away
For the helpless we left our homes behind
And to our destiny, we carry one
The dark clouds are far and yet I'm so cold
it seems that we've reached the end of the world

[bridge]

[chorus]

For the twilight we'll take our swords
and to Eldergrave we'll fight our way
Our fathers and brothers are dying in vain
but this is our oath: we'll get our revenge

[bridge]

Solan has called the help of the one
over the frost where the white mountains lie
What will future be, in the shadows of a word?
To be a queen: an oath upon the sword
and a tale..

[chorus]
7. Clanner of the Light (6:01)
Light will come and shine on me again
Wake up!
Broken my chains, along the walls of Eldergrave
I run to my freedom, alive and strong once more
Time has passed
Deliverance for all
My call will strike the end
The curse is gone forever more
The call of revolution roars beyond the gates
Cry out of the dying men, the desolation, persecutions
ache inside my heart, but I shall swear for revenge

[bridge:]
Light will come and shine on me again
Yet it shines through the clouds
On the day we'll all be free again

[chorus:]
Clanner of the Light
The shine and your force deliver hope for all
Clanner of the Light
The sword in your hand strikes for all

Beyond these walls of pain a better world awaits
So hold onto your freedom call
I'll bring the kingdom come to find a greater light
So hold onto your freedom call
Gods I've seen the ending, the final stage for all and shadows drift upon my skin
as the night will fear from us all

[chorus]

Light will come and shine on me again
Wake up!
Broken my chains, along the walls of Eldergrave
I run into my freedom, alive and strong once more
Time has passed
Deliverance for all
My call will strike the end
the curse is gone forever more
The call of revolution roars beyond the gates

[bridge]

[chorus]
8. To the Havenrod (1:05)
[instrumental]
9. The Walls of Laemnil (5:57)
Suffering no more today
Not today!
Believe in us, we are now on our way to your jails
Leave your past suffering behind
Freedom awaits so you must raise your head to the stars
And believe in yourself once again
And tonight...
The walls of Laemnil fall
Raise our fate to the hands of Gods

[bridge:]
The walls are falling to the trampling of our men
And the walls of Laemnil fall at last
The dark lord in his castle fears for death tonight...

[chorus:]
One for all, on our march to Eldergrave
And the walls of Laemnil fall
To the stomping of a thousand men
One for all, on our march to Eldergrave
And the walls of Laemnil fall
To the stomping of a thousand men

Down to the hall we recovered the all-mighty stones
and the power of Gods will beours
We left the shadows far behind
leave the shadows far behind and stand
To win the freedom of all man
Freedom awaits so you must raise your heads to the stars
And believe in yourself again
And tonight...
Solan can witness our fight
And tomorrow leave the world in harmony
And tonight...
The walls of Laemnil fall
Raise our fate to the hands of Gods
And the walls of Laemnil falls at last

[chorus]
10. Anmorkenta (6:01)
Take him down, take him down, take him down, take him down
Fight for your life, hear the call
No shadows there to be seen
Visions fade and your heart is released from pain
Time to be freed of your chains
The shine will never be killed
Then from heaven's gate the nightmare ends at last
The shadows are gone
Mysted in betrayal and lies
Under the sign of the dark
Darkness and oblivion fall when your children rise
Rise from the ashes and stand
forever free, forever proud
proud time has come and our victory is at hand
The foolish and the weaked
Cannot stand
The visions of their fall
It's gone forever now...

[chorus:]
No more betray, the end of war comes at last
We will brighten your souls
Through shades of gray
the light's age will come at last
We will never get lost in the dark
To our freedom we joyfully ride

Hold my hand, don't wander in the dark
just keep the fear inside
the light fantastic guiding your way
Now the time to rise has come
a reason to go home
and give an end to darkest of days
no more betray, tonight
Never had a chance to turn away
The sea is calling now, over the bay
where all brothers lie

[chorus x2]

No more betray, the end of war comes at last
we will never be alone
through shades of gray, the light's age will come at last
11. In Duna (5:02)
Silently black winter comes
tears of pain deep in our hearts
and the sun forever gone
while the shadows fly high
Night has come in shades of gray
light is gone forever now
and the Gods blind to our prays
leave their sons in the dark

[bridge:]
Will the angels from heaven carry hope to our kind?
Shall we then keep our faith in the light?

Many tears and many cries for the friends forever gone
by the sword so many died
many never went home

[bridge]

[chorus:]
Far from our kingdom where shadows can never dim
over the valleys and mountains we cry
Far on the water island of pain
last stand of Cenos where fathers and brothers are dying
Dying...

Many tears and many cries
for the friends forever gone
by the sword so many died many never went home
Night has come in shades of gray
light is gone forever now
and the Gods blind to our prays
leave their sons in the dark

[bridge]

[chorus]
12. The Story Remains (10:38)
Deep in our hearts
By this time, we've crossed so many lands
So many friends we've lost
So many bitter ends
By these days of anger, traitors and disguise
Gods have always been here by our side

[bridge:]
Once again, we'll see the morning sun
Once again
Yet the memories remain

[chorus:]
Never again the shadows in my heart
They're gone forever now
Before the light celebrate the return of many better days
Our world has the blessing of the Gods
These glorious times will be ours
And the story remains

[bridge]

So the time of peace will be back
And our love for the Gods is strong

[chorus]

For the light, we'll cross the endless sea
We'll face the evil one
and carry out the fear
So the day we've waited for so many years
finally comes
and our kingdoms will be free

[bridge]

[chorus]

And the story remains
13. Look into Lost Years (Outro) (3:04)
[Flora Spinelli from Kerion]

Ado shara imbesi derio
Are dosi pariso dal'Arel
Lio deren assa li mehena
Ore del Osyrhia

When life was sweet and feelings weren't lost
when all was clear like dawn on Dal'Arel
The thought of you forever in my heart
My sister of the light
14. Across the Endless Sea (Japanese Bonus Track) (5:31)
[Bonus Track]

The night was young for deliverance
The path clear for all
In the darkes of thunder we follow the one
The time when Cenos fooled all alike
The dreams were bestowed
For the love of our pears we will sing and rejoice

The night was young for deliverance
The path clear for all
In the darkest of thunder we follow the one
The time when Cenos fooled all alike
The dreas were bestowed

[bridge:]
The nightmare is over now
Angels will sing through endless times

[chorus:]
Welcome the times when angels are coming tonight
Before my eyes, within my dreams
Welcome the time
When shadows are falling tonight
To reach the coast, freedom for all
We'll sail across the endless sea

The night was young for deliverance
The path clear for all
In the darkest of thunder we follow the one
The time when Cenos fooled all alike
The dreams were bestowed
For the love of our pears we will sing and rejoice

[bridge]
