Music From the Elder Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. The Oath (4:32)
Like a blade of a sword I am forged in flame
Fiery hot
Tempered steel fire-bright to the night I take
I fear not
Now compelled by something I cannot see
I go forth surrendering to history

Your glory, I swear I ride for thee
Your power, I trust it rides with me
Your servant, I am and ever shall I be

Through a dream
I have a come to an ancient door
Lost in the mist
I have been there a hundred times or more
Pounding my fists
Now inside, the fire of the ancient burns
A boy goes in and suddenly a man returns

I gave my word and gained a key
I gave my heart and set it free
There's no turning back from this odyssey
Because I feel so alive suddenly
And I wonder, is this really me?
2. Fanfare (1:22)
(Fanfare)
3. Just a Boy (2:30)
Who steers the ship through the stormy sea
If hope is lost then so are we

While some eyes search for one to guide us
Some are staring at me

But I'm no hero
Though I wish I could be
For I am just a boy,
Too young to be sailing
I am just a boy,
And my future is unveiling
And I'm so frightened of failing
4. Dark Light (4:12)
LOOK OUT, Cause there's something wrong
And you don't know what it is
WATCH OUT, Or it's Sodom and Gommorah
The malevolent order
RIGHT NOW, Before it's much too late
Before it's much too late

A dark light---A darkness never ending
A dark light---The devil gets his due
A dark night---Is everywhere descending
A dark light---Is coming for you

NOW LOOK UP, Well the skies are black
And they're getting darker all the time
WATCH OUT, For the things that you believe in
You're gonna be attacked,
and you won't know what it is
WISE UP, You better watch your step
You better watch your step

A dark light---A darkness never ending
A dark light---Of perversion and hate
A dark night---Is everywhere descending
A dark light---There's no time to wait

LOOK OUT, For the death of love
There will be no more love
WATCH OUT, It's yourself that you are fooling
Who do you think you're fooling
SHOUT IT OUT, It's a terrible thing
Such a terrible thing

A dark light---A darkness never ending
A dark light---The sun is turning cool
A dark night---Is everywhere descending
A dark light---Is shining at you

Dark light, Dark light
Is shining at you, Dark light
5. Only You (4:19)
Only you have the answers
But the questions you have to find
Only you know the secrets
But the truth lies deep in your mind
Only you are the answer
You turn the night into day - yeah
Only you are the manchild
You are the light and you are the way

Tell me the secrets
I wanna know
Tell me the secrets
I wanna know
Only you

Only you are the manchild
You are the light and you are the way

I can't believe this is is true
Why do I listen to you
If I am all that you say
Why am I still so afraid

Only you.... ! Only you.... !
Only you.... !

In every age
In every time
A hero is born
As if by a grand design
6. Under the Rose (4:49)
Though you may be pure of heart
And free of sin
And though you have been chosen
To begin
And yet you must be worthy of
The prophecy
But seek and you shall find
Your destiny

Loneliness will haunt you
Will you sacrifice?
Do you take the oath
Will you live your life
Under the rose

The more you hurt the less you feel
The pain
And the more you change, the more you stay
The same
But now before you lies the quest
At hand
And from this boy you may become
A man

Do you understand
Will you sacrifice?
Do you take the oath
Will you live your life
Under the rose
7. A World Without Heroes (2:40)
A world without heroes
Is like a world without sun
You can't look up to anyone
Without heroes

And a world without heroes
Is like a never ending race
Is like a time without a place
A pointless thing devoid of grace

Where you don't know what you're after
Or if something's after you
And you don't know why you don't know
In a world without heroes

In a world without dreams
Things are no more than they seem
And a world without heroes
Is like a bird without wings
Or a bell that never rings
Just a sad and useless thing

Where you don't know what you're after
Or if something's after you
And you don't know why you don't know

In a world without heroes
There's nothing to be
It's no place for me
8. MR. Blackwell (4:53)
I never said I was more than I am
Do what I want and I don't give a damn
You're all so weak you know it makes me ill
Don't like you now and probably never will
You cheat and lie, and wonder why
You can't sleep at night

You're not well, Mr. Blackwell
And we can tell
You're not well, Mr. Blackwell
Why don't you go to hell

I am a sinner who just loves to sin
I am a fighter who just loves to win
I am the truth about this crummy hole
There's nothing here that can't be bought or sold
You're cold and mean, and in between
You're rotten to the core

[Chorus]

You're a victim, a real disgrace
You should be banished from the human race

We'll drink to sorrow then we'll drink to waste
We'll drink a toast to the inhuman race
Here's to the world and the times we're in
Here's to the kid a real man among men
You're cold and mean, and in between
You're rotten to the core

[Chorus]
9. Escape from the Island (2:50)
(Instrumental)
10. Odyssey (5:36)
From a far off galaxy, I hear you calling me
we are on an odyssey
Through the realms of time and space
In that enchanted place
You and I come face to face

Once upon not yet, long ago someday
Countless times we've met, met along the way

Through the luminescent night
On beams of neon light
You and I in wing-ged flight
As we cross the starry sea, powered by what we see
Now and then, the victory

[Chorus]

There's a child in a sundress
Looking at a rainy sky
There's a place in the desert
Where an ocean once danced by
There's a song in the silence
Weaving in and out of time
We are notes in the music
Searching for remembered rhyme

On a mountain high somewhere
Where only heroes dare
Stand the stallion and the mare
We have been and we shall be each other's destiny
One another's odyssey

[Chorus]

We've met along the way....
We've met along the way
11. I (3:52)
I was so frightened
I almost ran away
I didn't know that I could do
Anything I needed to
And then a bolt of lightning
Hit me on my head
Then I began to see
I just needed to believe in me

Now I, I believe in me
And I, I believe in something more
Than you can understand
Yes, I believe in me

They said I didn't stand a chance
i wouldn't win no way
But I've got news for you
There's nothing I can't do
Ain't no pretending
Ain't no make believe
But I've got to be the one
I gotta do what must be done

[Chorus:]
I believe in me
Yes, I believe in me - yeah

I don't need no money
I don't need no fame....No
I just need to believe in me
And I know most definitely
Don't need to get wasted
It only holds me down
I just need a will of my own
And the balls to stand alone

[Chorus]

Well do you really
Yes, I believe in me
Do you do you
Yes, I believe in me
I wanna rock 'n roll
Yes, I believe in me!
