Agnen: a Journey Through the Dark Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Dragonlord (5:17)
Now the moon roams low beneath the stars....of Agnen
Now the dragons soar on endless through the night

How can I....a man of my age
travel so distant with short journey
How can I....a man of might
in front of me open the night (and erect my being)

This is the knowledge I seek great dragon
to elude from living and cast my shadow

I...dragonlord hold my staff as one of warrior kind
I...let the books of paln and dragons guide me
...on a journey through the dark

This is the knowledge I seek great dragon
to elude from living and cast my shadow
2. As Mist Lay Silent Beneath (5:38)
A lifegiving sun lies low beyond
A mighty citadel

A general greets his army of light's devoted men
"Warriors hold tight
the darkness is upon us tonight"

No courage rose up among the hearts of warriors
to fight against the fear....the death
Only darkness stands against the dark
As mist lay silent beneath

Will these great walls of stone grant us from fall
Or will the walls we stand upon bury us all
All the mist alive in this fleeing form
flickering, dodging, fading at every side

No courage rose up among the hearts of warriors
to stand against the fear....the death
Only darkness stands against the dark
As mist lay silent beneath

Now the mist thinned and moved slowly away
as a great dragon drops low over the ground
and with a roaring shrill of fright
he call upon the men of might...

...to bring more death into this night
3. I Deny (5:03)
Facing down into
The blood-soaked soil
The prong pierces my neck
As it's only a swords length away...
From the years to come

My words are dripping red
I drink my pride
As I shall close my eyes
No more
The prong twists in the gap of flesh
Facing down into
The blood-soaked soil

I swear to all of which I possess
And I swear to all of which I am
To abhor the fear
I deny...

And the years to come
Are only a swords length away
I deny...
4. Pain Humanised (4:31)
Chaotic escapes
Distance: unrelevant
On a nightly basis journey

Under foreign stars
I reigned as one
While bleeding you would hear me

Know me...
We become as one
Leave me ...
You are my kind
In my life I'm not alone
You know what lurks behind

Envision a circle
It never ends
As a scar I stand forever
What was gained is lost in time
This theme I need to travel

Yet again the pain is present
Subsequence to substantial force
I'm a bearer of pain tonight
My burden is my source
5. Orb of Man (5:49)
Walking the dying orb of man
An empty path , blinded: fear
Unable to speak the tongue of wrath
Deaf to words not spoken in crowd

Nameless centuries
Still underneath
I am so alien to you
Shut were those fragile eyes
During all these starlit nights

Hearing the dying prayer
Of a man
His pity words disgust me
...who are you too speak
Whose mind (is) in chains
You never walked alone
Tasted sour wine

Warriors like me
-The wicked kind
Hand of mans demise
Darken spirits
Asleep for so long
It is time to open our eyes
6. Dryland (5:42)
have opened the door that had
been shut since the beginning of time
Alone of all men in all time
I am lord of the two lands

I have opened the doorway
between the light and the darkness,
and became stronger than death itself
You should follow the undying one...

Come, Come....

Over the mountain which has no name but pain
Beneath the black sky where stars don't shimmer

In the dryland
I am the one becoming
I am the tall lord of shadows
you have followed to your own end

Come, Come....
7. Towards I Roam (7:17)
On my journey towards....
I gather the darkness...
and the cold silence...
surround me
Towards I Roam
creating a hole in the world
Into the dark....forever
on towards I roam

Those enormous flashes of might
as I open the night...
And wander, into the darkland
over mountains in pain
this is where I shall reign
forever....at last

Descending into the dark
to where I go...
dragons can't follow (me)
as a dying in the realm of death
In this darkness of the earth and night
I summon even more of this enlightened might

I...who has erected my being
I...the enlightened one dying in this land
I... the immortal king of two lands
cast my shadow in the darkness
and reign at last.....forever
8. Agnen (11:34)
The light has died away, for me
I fell silent to the ground, and died
As i started on a journey through the dark.
In the great land of darkness,
I was born again.......dead

Words have lost their meaning now,
spells have lost their reason, and do cause harm
Humans kill your infants now, to prevent more death
As I am on my journey through the dark

Even dragons have lost their speech
roaming wild, forever......at last

Agnen, a journey through the dark
