Changing Times Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. Prelude (1:00)
instrumental
2. The Expulsion (3:53)
Somewhere in space and time
Where reality ends
That's the place I call my home
Purple Diamonds sending
Beams of mystic light
The eternal River's
Bending into the sea of life

Kings with no mercy
Ride across the sky
A trail of fire in the air
Stormcoulds scream their warning
Sparks split the night
Watch out for the coming end

So we had to turn away
From this hallowed place
The hope we wear in our hearts
Is to return back one day
So we had to turn away
From those hallowed place

Slo: Frank, Thies

Chased by the dark side
We fall one by one
It seems my last day has come
Suddenly the earth is shaking
I'm falling endlessly
My terminated kingdom is the
Last thing that I see

So I had to turn away
From this hallowed place
The last one with no way to go
Without a helping hand
So we had to turn away
From those hallowed place
3. Turn Towards the Light (3:10)
Coldness is the first that I feel
A nightmare or is it real
Where am I, what's going wrong?
I must be stranded in a strange place

A blazing ball explodes
Over an endless sea
While violent storms
Whip silver clouds across a mighty sky

[bridge]
I come out of night into the light
A stranger in a strange world
How long will I sail, which way will
I ride on the sea of life

[chorus]
I turn towards the light

Solo: Frank, both, Frank

Now I'm lost in this world
That can not be explained
Far away from my home
I'm alone on my way

[bridge]

[chorus]
4. No Way Back (5:07)
Every night I wake up
With the same bad dream in my mind
I look in the mirror
And see a face with tears in my eyes
Since you've been gone
I'm so alone
I don't understand what you have done

[bridge]
And now I stand here
And I'm calling out your name
'cause I want you back again

[chorus]
Hold me tight
Like you did so many nights
Pick me up when I'm fallin' to the ground
Life seems so senseless when you walk away
And I feel the pain of loneliness today

Since you've been gone
I'm so alone
I don't understand
What you have done

[bridge]

[chorus]

Solo: Frank

[chorus]
5. Be Strong (2:52)
No one can help me to run away
No one can help me to set the course
Only my own force will break the chains
Where are the flames deep inside?

[bridge]
Don't wanna be a loser anymore
Don't wanna be any longer the fool

I will be the actor on stage once more
Without doctors and medicine
There are many ways for living my life
So if I fail I'll try it again

[bridge]

[chorus]
Be strong, get ready
I throw off the chains and fear
Be strong, get ready
Times might change
But I'm strong enough to fight

Solo: Frank, Thies

Like the sun rises daily again
I'm coming back and I will
Face the duties I'll be given
Settle the problems that I see
The past is buried the future will live
I feel the power in me

[chorus]
6. To the End of the World (3:43)
It was the summer of 1909
When a few men set out to reach the North Pole
The hope in their hearts
And the pride in their glances
With the trust in God they marched on and on

No one know how the journey would end
In the white desert up north
Hundreds of miles in the loneliness
The only aim was to hold out

The equipment that had cost their savings
Tortured them with every step
The taste of freedom was already gone
And changed into fighting the world

No one know how the journey would end
In the white desert up north
Hundreds of miles in the loneliness
The only aim was to stay

Glory and death went heand in hand
On their long way to the pole
Despair and coldness were nobody's friend
On their painful way

[chorus]
To the end of the world
To the end of the world
To the end of the world

Solo: Frank

After several weeks they reached their goal
Exhaustion and triumph were one
To find glory and fame they had taken any risk
But not all of them came home again

Glory and death went heand in hand
On their long way to the pole
Despair and coldness were nobody's friend
On their painful way

[chorus]
7. The Vision (3:39)
In a time when man will fly
Far away to the stars where they will find
Strange kind of suns and planets shining
Lightyears to go for the answer
To see what lies beyond the stars

They're on their way
on powerfool beams traversing the sky
Ande they'll never die
Before they make their dreams come true

Crusing the eternity
To farther all those miracles
For their being
For their lives
Is there a heaven above?

What will they met
A fateful encounter of joyful times
No pain no gain
Anxious to solve the mission

[chorus]
Keep all your fantasies
Keep all your dreams alive
What is reality?
Inspirations of forgotten times?

Solo: Frank

Faster, farther, higher is the
Way we go since we invented the wheel
And it goes on and on and on
This is the flame that keeps us alive
Preserve the fire burning

Why we are here?
Read the answer in any stone
What's life meant to be?
Exploration for another existence?

[chorus]
8. Gambler (3:00)
At 6 o'clock in the morning, the duty calls every day
His job smells bad like a fish in a trash-can
And his eyes are small and looking sad

By little and little his friend had left
But he thought he wouldn't mind
'Cause in the evening when the day's gone
He's the master of the gambling-den

The trouser-pockets are filled with coins
so heavy they're hanging down to his knees
The slot machines sweat like a stembath
And the pinball shoots them all

[chorus]
Roll my ball roll - this is the chance
To get out of control
Roll my ball roll - it's my show
And I need these points to win

Solo: Thies, Frank

He doesn't need any communication
'Cause gamblers are lonely people

[chorus]
9. We Don't Need a War (3:01)
Since eternal times we are used to
Seeing this whole world at war
Why can't we live together
In peace and harmony

Millions of dollars spent daily for weapons
While children are dying of hunger and pain

[chorus]
We don't need war
We don't need heroes
'Cause after all there'll be nothing
Left to live for

Solo: Frank

Innocent victims crying for vengeance
Killed by powerful chemical arms

Visions of darkness I see in my dreams
I feel the end is coming soon

[chorus]
10. Violent Time (3:23)
Down in the south
In the land of black
Where justice turned to dust
A minority rules with terror
And blood to conceal their own lies

[bridge]
Children of god
Fight for their human rights
Warriors of pain
Fight again, again and again

You are the one whose heart is steel
Who doesn't feel
It isn't hard to say it loud
So start the fight and scream it out

[chorus]
Shout, shout it out
Shout it loud to the world
The pain you feel each day
Scream it out loud and proud
Just try to turn the wheel
In a violent time

I don't see a reason why
So many people have to die
Raise your hands against the masters
Don't care about their lies

[bridge]
Children of god
Fight for their human rights
Warriors of pain
Fighting again, again and again

Solo: Frank


They need freedom for the people
Freedom for their land
How long must we keep on fighting
Till white man understand

[chorus]
Shout, shout it out
Shout it loud to the world
The pain you feel each day
Scream it out loud and proud
Strike back and turn the wheel
In a violent time
