Protectors of the Lair Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Eulogy Of Sorrow / Awakening (2:03)
Here lies the body of the Polish king
May we remember him
Not for what he did
But for what he didn't do
And the people who stood by him
For which he gave his life
May God bless him
And may he rest in peace

Where am I?
What is this place?
What is the thing that draws me?
Who are you?
Show yourself
I said show yourself
Oh no, oh no please don't
Not me
2. Hunger (4:13)
Here we go again

Waken strange one lonely evening
Find you're all alone
You sit in silence
Feeling from inside your body
Growing deep inside you
Now you rise

Find a book you've never seen
A book in which you start to read
It's at this point you
Become enhanced instantly
Found the book of shadows
Enter the vampire queen's eternal life

Carnal forces overwhelm
Tremble at her sight with raw emotion
Especially now you've heard the song
Been beckoned by her
Bathed in lambent light
Impelled by longing deep desire
She summons you with force and fire
You can't resist, too late
You find you cross the border line
Time has come, she senses what is hers
Vampire queen awaits new life

She'll give you the promise of life
This is the final command
The vampire queen now demands
You obey her, her final command
A burning desire
The hunger grows wild

Fulfill her need, succumb to her
She'll give you life
She wants your blood

Hungers now been satisfied
Willful captive to her
Can't be broken
Controls the minds and bodies of her victims
And lovers which she feeds

Now acquired a fetish for the deadly vampires kiss
Bound and chained enslaved forever
To the vampire queen you serve for life
Fulfilling her need
It's your blood that she seeks

She'll give you the promise of life
This is the final command
The vampire queen now demands
You obey her, her final command
A burning desire
The hunger grows wild
This is the final command
The vampire queen now demands
You obey her, her final command
A burning desire
The hunger grows wild
3. Infinite Voyage (5:21)
Unanswered questions
Baffle the human mind
Ominous threat
Disrupting both space and time
Theory suggests
Of regions that lie beyond
Vanishing point
Where magnetic pull is strong

Pulsars received
Transmitted from outer space
Source is unknown
Distinct beams that radiate
Something is there
No evidence has been found
Still it exist
And operates quite unsound

Edge of space
The edge of time, time, time, time
Black holes like a vacuum
Sucking the universe

Super dense stars
Exploding with violent rage
Space bending time
Distorted and inter changed
Down to the core
Extracting cosmic debris
Pressure releases
Into a darkened sea

High concentration
Host like diversion looms
Critical mass
Now destined to be consumed
Gravity cycles
Nothing left to emit
Vacuums created black hole
Bottomless pit

Edge of space
The edge of time, time, time, time
Black holes like a vacuum
Sucking the universe

Event horizon threshold time is erased
Can't be detected
Light it cannot escape
Beyond this point
Matter ceases to exist
Into the void
Strange gases and swirling mist

Edge of forever
Destiny must unfold
Boundless dimension
Into the vast remote
Infinite voyage
Grand drama will evolve
Parallel worlds ascending
Through endless falls

Edge of space
The edge of time, time, time, time
Black holes like a vacuum
Sucking the universe
Edge of space
The edge of time, time, time, time
Black holes like a vacuum
Sucking the universe
4. Cursed Be The Deceiver (4:30)
Again it's got you tonight
It's cool to tell yourself alright
You're feeling so great
You're feeling strong
Then all of a sudden something's wrong
You panic you've been there before
You're desperate
You know that you must score
The tyrant has got you by the balls
The rush that you had is gone

Cursed the deceiver before it's too late
We denounce non believers
Cursed the deceiver before it's too late
Something's wrong

Cry out god help me before it's too late
Or you die, go to hell
They'll be no one to blame but yourself

Cursed the deceiver before it's too late
We denounce non believers
Cursed the deceiver before it's too late
Something's wrong

Cry out god help me before it's too late
Or you die, go to hell
They'll be no one to blame but yourself

It's become soul destroying
Remains are the shell of a soul
The pain that's within you
There's no escape, can't let go
Torment and torture
You've brought on yourself
You control and those you take with you descend
To the depths far below

Cursed the deceiver before it's too late
We denounce non believers
Cursed the deceiver before it's too late
Something's wrong

Cry out god help me before it's too late
Or you die, go to hell
They'll be no one to blame but yourself
5. Tame The Lion (6:03)
Lives inside a castle
Somewhere hidden in the clouds
High up in the mountains
You can hear the cries
Hear the cries
Laughs and sings the moon is glowing
Radiant red light
Unleashing powers of pleasure in the night

Believe it, what is strong
His so majestic his song
Believe it, oh you will see
Can't tame the lion
The griffin is king

Emerald eyes and wide spread opinions

Believe it, what is strong
His so majestic his song
Believe it, oh you will see
Can't tame the lion
The griffin is king
6. Entity / Watching From The Sky (4:28)
Could they be watching
Watching from the sky
Long distance travelers
Are believed to coincide
Endless enigma
Though the truth was lost
Still question why
Still this existence
It remains a mystery to this day

Among the ruins the answer lies
Within the sacred sight
Magnetic power fields appear to signify
Solar alignments come together
Through both space and time
Ancient observers
Long ago they founded their domain

Watchers of the sky did they exist
Celestial voyages through outer space
Watchers of the sky, the mystery
The mystery of the cosmic truth on earth

Could they exist

Could they be up there
Watching from the sky
Extra terrestrials
Some day they may arrive
So let the truth be known
To all of interstellar light
If life is out there
It remains a mystery to this day

Watchers of the sky did they exist
Celestial voyages through outer space
Watchers of the sky, the mystery
The mystery of the cosmic truth on earth

Could they exist
