Unification Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Coming Home (5:23)
[(Music and lyrics by P. Sielck) All vocals by Piet]

Lost in the dark milleniums ago
Where is the place where's the place called home

On fire they rode to flee from the fall
Their future was doomed they've foreseen it all

Mythical world of the ancient empire
secret and hidden
but some day we shall return

Ancient calls from anywhere in time
we have to follow the sign
Distant voices - sources unknown
Where to they lead us
Where will we go
On the scent for the lost Coming home

[Riff Solo: Piet]

Chasing a shadow in stardust and haze
Where will we find traces of our race

The engines are roaring
we're leaving ground once more
is it for real - will we fail
like so often before

Ancient calls from somewhere in time
we have to follow the sign
Distant voices - sources unknown
Where to they lead us
Where will we go
On the scent for the lost
Coming home

[Main Solo: Piet/Kai/Piet/Kai/both]

Mythical world of the ancient empire
is it for real - will we fail
like so often before

Ancient calls from somewhere

Star of the old
guide us - give us hope
Star ...
2. Starborn (4:37)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[Lead and backing vocals by Piet]
[Choir vocals by Jan and Piet]

Bound to the stars, bound to a land
Unspoiled and virgin
This journey has to end
Out in the cold, lonely we feel
Outcast and homeless
In coffins made of steel

Far beyond - so far beyond a strange horizon
History - the past is lost but we will live on

Still on the quest
Forever we're riding
No place to rest
In deep space we're gliding
Starborn children - their destiny
Starborn out in the cold - their sanctuary
Faster than light we cruise the unknown
Into the dark we've been thrown
Starborn and lost in the cold

Where can we go, where will we find
Shelter and silence
From all we've left behind
So many times we thought we had it all
But we had to follow
The stars and their call

Memories - of all we've left will fade away
Atlantis will - be lost in war and will decay

Goddess of fate
Forever we're riding
Light up the shade
In deep space we're gliding

Starborn children - their destiny

[Solo: Piet]

Goddess of fate
Forever we're riding
Light up the shade
In deep space we're gliding

Starborn children - their destiny
3. Deadly Sleep (5:09)
[Music and lyrics by K. Hansen]
[Lead and backing vocals by Kai and Piet]
[Choir vocals by Piet]

[Kai:] Welcome back home,
it's been so long, we've missed you,
been searching for honor and glory
out in the dark I have fought for survival
as thunder and gunfire were roaring

Back home, the time and the place of
my own my future is calling I know
i do believe there is no other place i can go

I must return from my deadly sleep
the only chance I've been given - my destiny
take me home, take me home

Black as a hole is the soil I was walking
as black as the troops were before me
relentless attack as my eyes started bleeding,
get razed to the ground by the soaring

It's time, you better be leading me home
our future is calling I know
I am the answer to all the remaining unknown

I must return from my deadly sleep
the only choice I've been given,-my destiny
take me home

[Solo Kai]

Piet: Roaring, embracing the thunder
Twisting and turning around
Locked in I will not go under
Save me before I will drown

[Solo 2: Kai]

I must return
Take me home - take me home
Take me home - take me home
Take me home - take me home
Let me go - let me go
Back to my home, back to the people I know
Out in the cold but where can I go I don't know
Where can I go I don't know
Come and take me home
4. Forces Of Rage (5:46)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[All vocals by Piet]

Under the ice we hide from your stare
buried in grief and despair
We're the derbies, the scattered remains,
leaves in the storm who is lashing the world

Destiny calls, extinction of man
will it all happen again
But yet we're alive, unbroken we stand
to banish the conqueror who's taken the land

We'll be a thorn in your unhuman flesh
There'll be a time for retortion
We'll break the fetters, we'll never give in
although it seems our end will begin

Forces united - forces arise
Legions of iron descent from the skies
Dark knight - you'll never defeat
The immortal spirit of freedom
Savior - watch out beware
We will engage
The forces of rage

Starbirds are gliding on winds of decay
merciless hunting the pray
Infernal machine, the hatchet of war
sharp as a razor will cut back the claw

We'll be the virus - a deadly disease
the fever is burning inside you
To bring you to fail is the ultimate aim
We'll rise from the ashes again and again

Forces united - forces arise
Legions of iron descent from the skies

Free - at least for a moment in time
Years - how many years have gone by
In fury and wrath we're looking above
Forging the sword, the blade of reprisal
Leaders of man let's ride out again
From fire and ice a blazing star will arise

[Solo: Piet]

We'll be a thorn in your unhuman flesh

Forces united - forces arise
5. Captain's Log (1:02)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[Narrator's voice by Jason Breitwege]

It is the year 2110.
The world is threatened by war once again.
The unknown vessel sent out armed forces appearing to be machines to invade ear
th.
The air and almost the entire surface is now under their control.
Research on the origin of the ship indicates
that it might be related to the
lost continent of Atlantis.
So the answers are given in the past,
somewhere in the infinity of space and time
6. Brothers (Of The Past) (4:43)
[(Music and lyrics by P. Sielck) All vocals by Piet]

Devastation - radiation - paralyzing fear
Terrorizing demons rising - termination's here
Stratospheric - energetic- drifting on the stream
Agonizing isolation inside the machine

Reborn in chaos and war
What has it all been good for
Reach out and take my hand
The children must life, the killing must end

Brother - you must awake
Brother - before it's too late
Here we stand
Like shadows of great things in the past
Hear my call, oh brother
Let's right the wrongs at last

Lifeless bloodhound - executor of our fatal law
Blinded by your wrong conclusion truth you see no more

Now the defender attacks
The land he was supposed to protect
This is our legacy
Together we're facing our destiny

Brother - you must awake

[Solo: Piet / Kai / Piet / Kai / both]

Reach out and take my hand
The children must life, the killing must end
This is our legacy
Together we're facing our destiny

Brother - you must awake

We are brothers of the past
Uhh, let's right the wrongs at last
7. Eye To Eye (5:52)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[Lead and backing vocals by Piet Choir vocals by Jan and Piet]

Into the night moonless cold and black
Hell is waiting, there is no turning back
Suddenly the air was on fire
Your buddy never had a chance
His blood on your hands you'll never forget
his cold and lifeless glance

Times of war are times of death
and now the killing is on
Now the killing is on
Mortal fear is creeping in your mind
and soul tonight
Nowhere to hide

Eye to eye - facing the enemy
Brave at heart - fighting for liberty
Heroes or fools
Out in the fields bitterness rules
Eye to eye - facing a deadly threat
Don't look back - look straight ahead
with the will to survive
Just keep up the faith
and victory is on your side

You closed his eyes
Forever he'll rest
Another victim another life
The hawks are hunting and you are the pray
so keep yourself alive

Flames of fury like the purgatory
burning high, burning the sky

Eye to eye - facing the enemy

[Solo 1: Kai]

Unlimited rage - rage
is driving you mad
Unlimited fury - fury
twisting in your head
Can't stand the pain - pain
it's driving you insane
You scream for vengeance - vengeance
but who's to blame

Aimless - like a drifter on the sea
Caught up in reality of war
Restless - always on the run
Hopes and dreams, they're gone
Take me away

[Solo 2: Piet]

Eye to eye - facing the enemy

Eye to eye - facing the enemy
Face to face - heroes or fools
Back to back - out in the fields
the bitterness rules
Eye to eye - look straight ahead
Face to face - the will to survive
Don't look back - just keep up the faith

And victory is on your side
On your side at last
8. Mind Over Matter (5:35)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[All vocals by Piet]

Am I alive, do I exist
Am I the goddess of justice
A body of metal, a mind made of circuits
Although I think and I'm conscious
What is my species, where is my soul
or am I dead as a rock

Is this my spirit or just a program
written on memory blocks

What is my aim
I am what can't be
A mind in a digital brain

It is the mind - mind over matter
The power has brought me to live
In lakes of doubts and oceans of my questions
I had to dive
Give me guidance - in torrents of time
Give me answers - creators of mine from the past
Mind over matter at last

So much to learn, so much to see
So many things to explore
Too little I know, am I a being
or just a failure at all

Please heal my pain
The silence of ungiven answers
will drive me insane

It is the mind - mind over matter

Conscious or dead - beginning or end
Mind of circuits - heal the pain
Going insane - lakes of doubts
Torrents of time - oceans of questions
Creators of mine
Answers I need guidance I want
Conscious or dead - beginning or end

[Solo: Piet]

It is the mind - mind over matter
9. Prisoner Of The Void (4:43)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[All vocals by Piet]

Have I returned from the dead
a lightning was striking my head
Clarity's filling my mind
I am refined

Unlock the gate to reality
Leaving the maze to be free
Tangled in a realm
of fantasy and dreams
Blinded by delusion and pain
I must escape - break the chain

Countless years
of existence in the cold
Now I'm at the mercy
of the one I've once controlled

From far beyond the ending of all time
I saw the light saving me from the night
Eternal slave your master has returned
Obey and release me
The prisoner of the void

Uhh, I've been traveling
the darkest dimension
A disembodied soul
in damnation
But then I found sanctuary
Peaceful rest in my own entity

Now I realize
We have reached the final shore
Oh, I can't allow him
To destroy it anymore

From far beyond

Demons of time I have felt your embrace
Out in the vastness now I know your face
Oh I gave into the power of thought
Now I must use it to leave my
Sepulchral vault

[Solo: Piet / both/ Kai]

From far beyond
the ending of all time
I saw the light
saving me from the night
Eternal slave
Your master has returned
Hear my command

From far beyond
I have been seeing the light
Eternal gods
Hear my entreaty and free me
Release me from the void
10. The Battle (5:47)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[Lead and backing vocals by Piet]
[Choir vocals by Jan and Piet]

Reflections of light paint the horizon
Silver and weak he is glowing
Beauty arises in front of my eyes
Were are we going
My heart wants to weep
The word is goodbye
Will I return
Oh, will I see it again
Will I live - will I die

The land has been bleeding in war
Nothing will be like it has been before
A moment in silence in the dawn
Facing the upcoming storm

So let the battle - let the battle begin
Armies are marching against us tonight
In unity we stand to fight

A shiver is send down my spine
As we await the final attack
Wings launch, weapons load
Cold sweat runs down the back of my neck

We'll break through the gate
The sky we'll invade
The tyrant will burn and the world it will turn
Tonight is the night
Darkness or light
Freedom will be our guide

So let the battle - let the battle begin
The blade of reprisal is ready to strike
In unity we stand to fight - to fight!

[Solo 1+2: Piet / Solo 3: Kai]

So let the battle - let the battle begin
Armies are marching against us tonight
In unity we stand to fight

So let the battle - let the battle begin
The blade of reprisal is ready to strike
In unity we stand to fight

[Solo 4: Uwe Lulis]
11. Unchained (6:09)
[Music and lyrics by P. Sielck]
[Lead and backing vocals by Jan and Piet]
[Choir vocals by Jan and Piet]

[Jan:] A new day is born
In peace and in silence
Rays of the sun
Rip through the clouds
[Piet:] A new age is to come

[Jan:] The darkness decays
The heavens are shining
golden and blue enlightening the dawn
[Piet:] A New World will move on

So many lives
Out in the fields oh so many have died
Now we will rise
The chains that have held us are broken
and now we are

Free - from the tyrant
The conqueror's been banished
Free - and united
The throne in the sky now is
Free - free from the tyrant
Relentless we fought to be
Free - free and united
We have outlasted the war
The shadows of war

[Jan:] They came from the stars
to search a forgotten land
Rescue they brought
With thunder they fought
[Piet:] The tide has turned as the appeared

So many tears
Ohh, we will always remember the years
Earth has been burned
but then they returned
to save us and now we are

Free - from the tyrant

[Solo 1: Piet]

[Jan:] No more we'll fight
[Piet:] Return to the light
[Jan:] The conqueror's been banished
[Piet:] The savior has vanished
[Jan:] The mighty machine
[Piet:] a million life's dream
[Both:] outlasted the past
[Both:] out in the vast

[Solo 2: Piet / Solo 3: Kai]

Free - from the tyrant

After the war
The world is unchained
Freedom we've gained
The Savior's been banished
The fortress has vanished
In peace and in silence
The world will move on
Darkness and war
No more we'll fight
We have returned - returned to the light
12. Forevermore (5:15)
[Music and lyrics by K. Hansen]
[Lead vocals by Kai]
[Backing vocals by Kai and Piet]
[Choir vocals by just everybody]

Hello, is anybody out there
People can't you hear
Can't you hear my cry
Listen it's time to leave the nightmare
I'm calling out for all of you
From beyond our space and time

Rise and be free
From the darkest of dreams
And let us be forever
An eternal flame
And forevermore our union will remain

Now I see the rising evening star
Shining down on earth
Like always been before

Take my hand
This is our Promised Land
And let us be forever
An eternal flame
And forevermore our union will remain

[Solo: Kai]

I have no fear
And now for all of us
The end is drawing near

The power of destiny we hold in hand
The spirit of freedom that will never end
For all eternity we hold the flame
And forevermore our union will remain

And forevermore I wish it will remain
Forevermore - Forever
