Hour of Restoration Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Magna Carta
[I. Magna Carta Overture]


[II. Declaration]

John The King of England
Duke of Normandy (Count of Aquitaine)
Spoke to all his subjects
Declaring freedom and reform in this present charter...

[III. Status Quo]

In the first place it is our will
Before we quarrel there are rights to instill
Upon our heirs, confirmed with grace
The English Church shall stand in faith
If any earl or baron dies
And owes us relief we will rectify
Our binding words to the sons under age:
"We'll hold it in trust - your inheritance is saved."

The guardian of the land will now answer to us.
Assignable for husbandry and wardship.
The Treaty of The Magna Carta will ensure this.

[IV. Reform]

City of London have all your liberties
Free customs and furthermore; petition counsel
That no assessment shall reach into the pockets
Of the common man
We respect the rights of the common man
We must respect the rights of the common man.....
No witch hunt executions to be held in the shadows
No trivial crimes shall condemn one to the gallows
All evil customs, warrens, sheriffs, shall be abolished
All hostages will be released
In the the final hours of this decadence we must defeat
'Cause it's not too late for the future
Stand back - look around
It's a time for peace not a time for war or for judgement
Summon all, listen to my order!
This fifteenth day of June in Runnymeade
All must coincide as The Magna Carta is ratified.....

[V. Restoration]

Should a man transgress this charter
We'll judge in fairness with law and order
Time for the kingdom to be granted all these things
Wishing betterment for allies, with security.
Liberty of conscience is finally restored as The
Magna Carta is moving forward in this restoration
From such a young man his great awakenings has saved our homeland.....

In a modern world we still must fight to learn the lessons that prolong our plight
The history of those before should help us now but we choose to ignore
Explore the new ground - discovery
We know the answers but no one sees
We are so close but we stand so far
From the restoration - the nearest star
The Hour of Restoration is now upon us
We measure the time all history to the present The
Magna Carta
Trust of the ancient living.

City of London have all your liberties, free customs and furthermore
Petition counsel that no assessment shall reach into the pockets of the common man.
We restored the rights of the common man
We have restored the rights of the common man...
2. The Winner
Welcome these players to your stage
Progressive, we cleverly syncopate
These rhythms, in a key, in an overture
Directing our experience into yours.

Waiting here for a visionary
Imagine living the new possibilities
In a matter of time you're a
Success at hand
It's all in your future just take command.
Anyone can be a winner
We all want a winner
Everybody wants one -
We all want a winner
3. Friends Of America
Fly the flag
Put your hand on your heart
You can be assured
That you've done your part
Watch the nation bleed
From the comfort of your chair
And then you'll just become
A lazy bum sitting there
Friends of America
Where are you now?
Get up and do something for
America, all of us stand up now.
FACE THE FACTS, we must practice
What we preach
Let go of yesterday -
There is an answer in our reach.
Someone lead the way, make us
Do the rest
We'll join together -
Sound the call
Now It's time to
Show them whose the best.
The world is a witness to the change
Of events in the rise of America.
Who are your leaders? And who are
Your heroes? In this America.
Stronger than ever we unite for the
Common cause of America.
Friends of America.....
4. Union Jack
Magic land so far away - was
It worth the voyage in these days?
The lives of soldiers thrown away
In medieval claims to yesterday...
Off the starboard bow
In the heat of the night
We visualize Apocalypse in the fire fight,
The parliament says "it's necessary"
But Birmingham calls you home
The neighborhood, the family, the
Mind begins to roam.
Ocean currents flowing
Taking vessels to a war
Whether right or wrong it's a moot point
As we hit the shore
A former king's residence
In the district of the North
The crown of England is risking
All for sovereignty at Stanley Port.
The Mission. The Mission.
Don't Forget The Mission.
But there's no way out
I don't want to stand here and fight anymore
Please - couldn't we find a better way,
I just saw somebody die.
Waving the flag as he fell to the ground -
While the locals rejoiced in liberation.
So take those ice cold islands back -
Almighty Union Jack
A thousand victories will be behind you
In royal fashion the colonies, the land swept up
In the naval destruction out at sea.
No wire to the U.K. - no moral
Ground can prepare us to die at
Falkland Sound.
So take those ice cold islands back
Almighty Union Jack
A thousand victories will be behind you
When will we learn to cease the fire
My friends in modern times - we need a better way.
Because this place belongs to all of us
Responsibility lies within each of us
The revenge we seek will not conquer us...
This place belongs to all of us
Responsibility lies within each of us
One earth, one mind can save us
My friends the end is near us
5. Another Burning
Back in '61 to '65, their indifferences,
Could never hide the buried hopes of peace
That rest beneath them wearing grey or blue.
Did the burning of white mansions still
The fire inside their hearts to kill
Each other? The memories that lie where ash remains.
They marched all the fathers and sons
To a slaughter
Then the widows and daughters knew
That no one would march back home.
Can you feel it? Don't deny that it comes from
Deep within your soul.
Can you feel it? Don't you see that this
Is something we can do together?
The intolerance bred ignorance and prejudice
But they possessed destructive powers
Making it too real for them to see
That their strength was an illusion
Fueled by dreams of glory writing
Their own story
Knowing that no man should be
Though it's hard to build on dreams again
We must fight the demon if
We're going to win.
One more chance to live again - to prosper the
Open land that God gave them. One more
Chance to live a new way - they sacrificed
Everything - they threw it away.
Hate must never claim the lives of our heroes
Again. Never can we allow another burning...
6. Just One Bridge
Walking on a still green sea-have you got the faith to let it be?
Without falling through like an anchor tied - to your weighted memories of guilty times.
Stepping on a bed of coals - does little damage to the icy souls
'Cause there's just one bridge between pain and hope
So keep mind sharp enough to stay afloat - while you're here......
7. Breaking These Circles
When your mind stays awake and your body cries for sleep
Disillusioned from the pain you're in way too deep.
As the chains bind your soul and the sweat takes its toll
Don't submit to addiction - can't escape the whole world.
You're just looking for something - you can't find it in a bottle
You accelerate to the limit - Three more hits and the throttle
Will take you to the grave - to an early demise - don't expect any mercy
If you live in disguise.
Preaching again to the multitudes end. Make a promise to stop now 'cause
I can't even look in the mirror
A freak, a cruel lie
I've been fooling myself
In the images that I've justified.
Breaking these circles surrounding me there's a great white light at the end
My life is worth living again and again-
Now I believe in the knowledge and now I'm in the light.
Breaking these circles - don't repeat all our darkest nightmares
The universal man
Still in the same place his sin of addiction began........
8. Turning Point
We must search together or united we'll fall
Standing at the crossroad - just the two of us.
Will you travel with me? I'll take the surest path
In this Hour of Restoration...
