Awakening the World Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level James Joyce       Last modified by level Eagles
1. The Quickening (1:06)
The Quickening repowers me!
2. Heart of Storm (6:16)
Rising from the ruins
Yet my mind is burning
Flames reflect those years of torment
Life that drowned in fire
Death was my desire
Path of hate was a relief for me

And then we stood there eye to eye
The darkest grief against a pure heart
Life baptised in metal By the secret of steel you are blessed, hail!!!
Gift of power helps you vanquish All the mortal's plagues

Heart of storm - I feel... the force is clean again
Heart of storm - deep inside of me
Heart of storm - and when I tear all roots of pain,
Heart of storm - grief and agony, then I'll be free

Hey! Ride on the wind!

Lightning pierced my body
Back again I'm rising
Now you hear my primal calling
Shout out even higher
War's now our revival!
Voice of truth is cryin' out for me

And now we're standing side by side
The tamed old hatreds next to mine
Watch me ride on the thunder
Followed by the warriors of steel, hail!!!
Strive for justice, fight for freedom
Yeah! This war is real!

Heart of storm - I know... the force is clean again
Heart of storm - all inside of me
Heart of storm - and now I kill all grief and pain
Heart of storm - Hey! And I kill the misery!

Now the force is clean again
All inside of me
And as I've killed all grief and pain
I crushed the agony, and now I'm free

And my heart of storm

I know... I know everything
I am everything
I'm alive
3. Sworn In the Metal Wind (5:44)
Walking in the shadow of life's dreary side
Fallen down memory lane
Winds whip the world, just like the woes whip my mind
Where is that time when "right now" was The words
When the heart burned with will like a flare
All I now keep is just damned commonplace misery

Hey man! What is this?!
Sounds like wail of a wimp
Did you let loser side take command?!
Where's the warrior in you
And the spirit he got
You say - "lost"
No! It's somewhere inside
And you know there's a force that unites all of us
Leave the wasteland we together will!
If you´re broken, remember, you got faith within us!
Take now your next deep breath and revive
your old strength

Facing the abyss of heart's lonely grief
The bitch has polluted my soul
Rains flood the earth, just like the tears flood my eyes
Never again will my life be the same
Nothing can heal up my wounds
Guile and disgrace shall now follow me into the end

I just can not believe it
It's too weak to be true
Have you really forgotten your worth?!
Can't you see victory!?
You are now free again!
Look at me!
Yeah! I live my own life
If you once tasted treason from a female - leave that!
Every warrior has a gash on his sword
Don't forget you are metal, not some ass-kissing whore
Take some under your wings, but she must kiss the ring!

Winds of metal, make me once again
feel clear air's breath blowing in my wings!

I possess magic force
I am free in my words
Whole the world lays right below my feet
Life of duties and dogmas are just frames formed by rats
How'd I know?
Hey! I'm a guardian of truth
Now! Is really the time to wake up you old jade
Such as Phoenix spreads his firewings
I will help you remember by kicking your ass

And the will shall return
And again hearts shall burn
All the horns now will sing
Leading you back to the metal winds
4. The Song of Air (0:59)
instrumental
5. World Through My Fateless Eyes (5:09)
In the dawn of me, back at my spring of life
A mystic cry touched my soul
Just like a dream... a shine filled up it's sphere
My mind it was free and the secret's key was for me there

Magic voice that came... strain from another world
Of beauty not to believe
All then I heard was for me like a soul's reverie
And the voice... it sang my name

And through the all painful years that should come
That magic was there by my side
Power that led to I lost fear of death
Hatred that covered its meaning
I hail my senses that help me to see
so clear in my mind
All rotten "truth" and the doctrines which words
make us blind

I see the world through my fateless eyes

Pain be the sign, and the insight the guide
On this journey of unforeseen end
Enlightened by force of the unflagging faith
Through these wastelands I walk my own path
Damn the fate! You're one with your soul
and you must pave it's way by yourself

Out of nowhere the storm is coming on
The blare that surrounds helps me dream in
Enchanting me, while the spirit is rising again
And the storm... it sings my name

So as I walk on the path I believe
The force's always gracing my steps
Now in the name of the new risen will
I shall discomfit my fear!
And when the pinions of knowledge
like thunder, so mighty, will carry me on
All pain and grief and the weakness in me
shall be gone

I see the world through my fateless eyes
6. Perfect Warrior (3:56)
I was falling into the boundless sea
I'm the sacred one who chose to change this world
Everything I hate to see...
Everyone I hate to hear...
Raise your sword and never fall again

I was calling, world never answered me
Time was standing still and life plunged into ruin
Everything I hate to see...
Everyone I hate to hear...
Hold your head up high and spread your words

Mob of "right", I despise your way of life!
I'm a "sinner", yet forgive me nothing
I'm a "heathen", but forever free

Remember!
If you try to break my wings
If you dare to watch my dreams
You'll forever bare your blame
In the name of pain

Remember!
If you try to break my wings
If you try to steal my dreams
You will never free your name
From the chains of pain

If you try to break my wings
If you dare to touch my dreams
Then my curse will be your pain
7. Denial of Fate (3:39)
Tribunal of senseless rabble
Built on fear and congruous prophesies
Twisting minds with planned hypocrisy
By the fools the clear're surrounded
Blind are deaf and deaf are blinded
Grant themselves the dream of destiny

Eternal path has not been "meant" for thee
The myth of fate you must tear by force

Get away!
Feel the taste of freedom, ride on wind
Let your mind see things world never seen
As you weed your life from the hope of fate
Find the way you shall within yourself

Clouds of might eclipse the horizon
Darkened sky as long as eye can see
Winds arise in wrath released by me
Now I spread the wings of fire
Flames of rage arise in power
The time has come to shed my burning will

Eternal path has not been "meant" for thee
The myth of fate you must tear by force

Get away!
Feel the taste of freedom, ride on wind
Let your mind see things world never seen
As you weed your life from the hope of fate
Find the way you shall within yourself

Feel the taste of freedom, ride on wind
Let your mind see things world never seen
As you weed your life from the hope of fate
Find the way you shall within yourself

Feel the taste of freedom, ride on wind
Let your mind see things world never seen
As you weed your life from the hope of fate
Find the way you shall within yourself
8. Welcome Back (5:41)
Out of the sun, out of the night
Comes the morning light
Just another day breaks
Under the same sky
As the misty dawning fades away to its lair
Silence and peace fills the air
While this placid day reflects its calm
Feeling the chill of a distant zone
Hear the lost ones' cry from miles away
Wishing they were gone to another day
But the wishes give no hide
And the beasts you dread dwells in disguise

As the smoke covers my eyes
Mystic sight reveals
A doleful land among the shadows
Where only lost men go
Struggling in the night
Grief I see in their eyes

The sun is blackened while they fight
But the fire of hatred's rising high
The commands were only lies
Around me young men die

Welcome back, to the days of thunder!
Welcome back, to the days where you were born!
Welcome back, to break the spell you're under!
Welcome back, to the days of thunder!
Welcome back, to the days where you were born!
Welcome back, to raise again your honour!

What about the life...
that shined so bright once in your eyes?
What about the death... faith you lost...
so that was your quest?
What about the dreams...
there where no visions in your grief?
What about the fight...
that graced your life?

Water, fire, wind and soil
My soul came to be reborn
As the lightning thrashes black skies
The spirit fills my mind

Welcome back, to the days of thunder!
Welcome back, to the days where you were born!
Welcome back, to break the spell you're under!
Welcome back, to the days of thunder!
Welcome back, to the days where you were born!
Welcome back, to raise again your honour!

What about the life...
It shines so bright now in my eyes!
What about the death...
Faith I found, now life's my quest!
What about the dreams...
There're new visions in my grief!
What about the fight...
It graces my life!

Out of the fire
Out of the wind
Out of the water and soil
I'm reborn
9. The Kingdom of My Will (9:15)
Riding from wastelands
Black were their skies
My armour's still bleeding
Ripped by fire and ice

Watch the horseman wing out of the night
He's coming to save you, prepare! For now he arrives

Mounting through stormlands
With the wind in my hair
The spell I've broken...
...like the chains of despair

Share this flame that guides me in the dark
The spirit of metal, the legacy of our kind

To the kingdom of my will
From dungeons of emotions
Wisdom's voice is guiding me
Leads me through all tortures
Eyes of faith for me to see
The rotten deeds of liars
World that've turned to misery I brave
And the pure shall prevail

The misery I brave! Hey!
Led by that golden voice

Slaves of corruption
You'll fall by my hand
And all mindoppressors
Will be chased to the end

Fear the steel that's meant for all you rats!
The essence of insight, the truth,
that longs for your heads

To the kingdom of my will
From dungeons of emotions
Wisdom's voice is guiding me
Leads me through all tortures
Cross the life's unflagging sea
Through air I fly on thunder
Gift of force is meant for me
Refills my desolate shell

To the kingdom of my will
From dungeons of emotions
Wisdom's voice is guiding me
Leads me through all tortures
Forced to yield the hypocrites
But orders I'll not follow
Worms of lie surrounding me
Now see my wings of war!
The battle's confronting me
And for me... the battle has started again

Now see!

If you think I rest in wait
Until the fame will shine on me...
Through the mist I led myself!
The peak of dreams I reach by will!

Today is The Day!
Today is The Day!
Today is The Day!
Today is The Day!
Today is The Day!
Today is The Day!
Today is The Day!

Hey! You!

Hey!
If you think I rest in wait
Until the fame will shine on me...
Through the mist I led myself!
The peak of dreams I reach by will!

To the kingdom of my will
From dungeons of emotions
Wisdom's voice is guiding me
Leads me through all tortures
Cross the life's unflagging sea
Through air I fly on thunder
Gift of force is meant for me
Refills the chambers of my heart
