The Blessed Curse Lyrics

(16)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
Disc 1 - The Blessed Curse  
1. The Blessed Curse (4:47)
I remember well the oath I made that fall
As the All-Father took reign from his mighty hall
I have vowed to honor him and the Gods of light
Bring back life to ancient tales man lost in the night

This blessed curse is now my world
This blessed curse is what I'm worth

As the Green Man's time came over all the land
The icy grip of death had its hold on man
I have kissed the muse been blinded by the light
Now I tell the ancient tales man lost in the night

(Chorus)
2. Truth in the Ash (3:17)
Reaching out from the ancient graves
The truth is found within the ash
The dead still have something to say
Within the clay of Man's past

The time is here the logic clear
Throw off the hate that's shackled man
Seek out the truth lost in our youth
It's not too late to understand

Deciphering the ancient clay
Has brought new light upon our past
And given birth to a new day
Where truth and wisdom have a chance

(Chorus)
3. Tomes of Clay (8:12)
Sumeria
The beginning of the science of man
Cuneiform
Man's first writings from a civilized land
Niniva's
Grand library of Ashurbanipal
Tomes of clay
Tell the stories of the truth that was lost
Gilgamesh
First true epic plagiarized by new faith
Ancient tales
So historic that refute christian hate
Babylons
True beginnings in this knowledge so pure
Zigurat
Still is standing in the city of Ur
4. The Dead Still Speak (3:33)
Before Sumeria's kingdom was realized
A city walled with many gates
Found in northern lands of Mesopotamia
A jewel of early city states

The dead still speak out from the grave

The fires of battle came to rage upon these walls
Destroying all within its gates
Sumeria would soon emerge out of this fall
The Phoenix rises from the flames

(Chorus)
5. Falling (4:43)
Have you questioned the truth of your faith
Know its origins
Have you passed the light of the gate
Be it forbidden

The blinded still pray
To plagiarized lore
They say it's the way
No other before

Follow your own path of light
Seek out the wisdom
Drink of the waters of life
Be it forbidden

It's not too late
Save your own soul
Make your own fate
Never let go

Feels like we're falling
Into the pit of despair
No angels calling
Chasing away all your fears

It's not too late
Save your own soul
Make your own fate
Never let go

Feels like we're falling
Into the pit of despair
No angels calling
Chasing away all your fears
6. Kings of Invention (3:18)
The battles rage across Mesopotamia
Giving birth to the land of kings
A war between Sumer and the Akkadians
Brought forth a civilized world dream

A world of dreams and fears
The birth pangs of a new bronze age
The truth of life is here
The words are written in the clay

Before the times of great kings of Assyria
Before the rise of Babylon
Before the light of Luxifera was a thought
The lore of Gilgamesh was taught

(Chorus)
7. Reign of Dreams (4:37)
So many cultures assimilated
Absorbed by the conquering tribes
Created what would be a new order
First dynasty of power and might

The reign of dreams
Given life by Sumer's kings
The reign of dreams
Unto elder Gods the priests did sing

Kings of invention and the architects
Who laid the founding blocks of man
Civilization was born of this age
A time when dreams did rule the land

(Chorus)
8. Luxiferia's Light (4:46)
The first telling of the deluge
Within the epic Gilgamesh
With every creature two by two
Upon the ark and saved from death

Open up your mind
Read between the lines
Wisdom is the prize

To be pagan is heresy
According to the good king James
In truth these words are blasphemy
Unto the Gods of man's first faiths

Open up your mind
Read between the lines
Wisdom is the prize
Open up your eyes
Fire rains from the sky
Luxifera's light

Just like the times of the crusades
Medieval thought does still prevail
The faith of hate cuts like a blade
And hides the truth behind the veil

Open up your mind
Read between the lines
Wisdom is the prize
9. Sword of Hate (3:59)
These thoughts could be considered heresy
But history's truth is in our face
We must get past religious lunacy
If there's hope for the human race

Out of the ashes of our past
Comes proof of who we are at last

These words could be considered blasphemy
But knowledge ebbs up from the grave
Stop spilling blood for Gods insanity
And put away the sword of hate

Out of the ashes of our past
Comes proof of who we are at last

Out of the ashes of our past
10. The Muses Kiss (6:43)
The light is shining
Upon the race of man
Though most of us are blinded
And never understand
That honor breeds from virtue
In like of elder clans
Their spirits stand beside you
To make a stand defending man
From the abyss
We have felt the muses kiss

Who will be calling
Unto the Gods of old
Technology is driving
The old ways from our souls
So hang unto the memory
Of ancients brave and bold
And never break the circle
Of magik lore that stays the horde
From the abyss
I have felt the muses kiss

We have felt the muses kiss
We have felt the muses kiss
 
Disc 2 - After the Muse  
1. After the Muse (5:27)
And I do believe
That you will carry on
Even when I leave
I know that you'll be strong

Here I will be for you
Till the end of all time
Till the end of time

And I do believe
That you will be the one
Who will set me free
And save me with your love

(Chorus)

And I do believe in you
You must all carry on
Even thou I have left you
You must always be strong

The muse brought me to you
In the wink of an eye
The voice of a true fool
In quest of the light
2. Life Goes On (8:27)
I've spent a lifetime reading signs
To make the future known
To step inside the blessed light
And let the truth be told

Cause life, yes life must go on

And now I see the end of time
In the burning coals
Even though they deem this a crime
I have to tell the story

Cause life, yes life must go on

Life, life goes on
Life, life goes on

I have to hide the truth in rhyme
To save my mortal soul
Persecution comes with fire
For heretics and lords

Cause life, yes life must go on

(Chorus)
3. All Hallows Eve (1981 Rehearsal) (10:42)
Halloween on the moors the moon burns full and bright
It seems we've been here before the fog creeps through the night
Camped upon shining Tor we burn the Rowan Fires
Hear the hunters horns this night

And it seems like England in the days of old
Oh the night is warm but I am cold

Oh from the fires of Hell I hear the haunting cries
Eh reminding us of this night of nights
Oh these feelings come to me from deep inside
Eh the Hounds of Yeth lead the Midnight Ride
Oh as the energy sends shivers down my spine
Eh I see the cycles of my life
Oh can you ever tell fate from destiny
Eh this night both can set you free

The stars they shine so bright
A mystery we cannot light
The difference from wrong and right is forgotten tonight
So now we know for sure the hunt is on this night
Annwyn is really there and will be for all time
The spirits of the dead shall fly to Avalon
The yellow eyed Hounds of Yeth howl on

And it seems like England in the days of old
Oh the night, the night is warm but I am cold

Oh from the fires of Hell I hear the haunting cries
Eh reminding us of this night of nights
Oh these feelings come to me from deep inside
Eh the Hounds of Yeth lead the Midnight Ride
Oh as the energy sends shivers down my spine
Eh I see the cycles of my life
Oh can you ever tell fate from destiny
Eh this night both can set you free
Oh I do hear the cries inside my hazy head
Eh The Rowan Fires summon up the dead
Oh the air is filled with horns of warriors bold
Eh they ride the sky searching for lost souls

Halloween in the moors here on Shining Tor
Halloween in the moors here on Shining Tor
Halloween in the moors here on Shining Tor
Halloween
Halloween

A night of conquest summoned
But this we did not know
We fly on demon horses
Collecting all lost souls
The winds of mighty Annwyn
Blow in from coast to coast
The Hounds of Yeth are calling
To all the wandering souls

Some souls are lost forever
But some still have a chance
To ride with ancient warlords
Across these blessed lands
The Rowan Fires are burning
The Hounds of Yeth lead on
The Wild Hunt has opened
The Gates of Avalon
4. In Search of the Lost Chord (3:50)
Through the magik of music
I have searched for the key to the door
In my mind it's so perfect
Most beautiful chord

It's so clear whe I'm dreaming
Sound so epic I've not heard before
Can you tell me the reason
So elusive this chord
Lo and behold

Blessed I am to hear this
Cursed I am to be lost in this search
It's the muses lasting kiss
Tis blessed this curse

It's so clear whe I'm dreaming
Sound so epic I've not heard before
Can you tell me the reason
So elusive this chord
Lo and behold

I will never stop searching
For this magikal mystery chord
Maybe I am still dreaming
I'll find the lost chord

Blessed I am to hear this
Cursed I am to be lost in this search
It's the muses lasting kiss
Tis blessed this curse
5. Reach (7:05)
All this life your unforgiven
If you seek the truth of the stars
A requiem for man's salvation
If we don't ever reach out that far

Devilish is man's deception
Using faith to mentally enslave
Grave the cost of mass redemption
Feeding fires of war that steal the brave
Just one way to our survival
Pioneer the universe of space
6. All Hallows Eve 2014 (15:05)
Halloween on the moors the moon burns full and bright
It seems we've been here before the fog creeps through the night
Camped upon shining Tor we burn the Rowan Fires
Hear the hunters horns this night

And it seems like England in the days of old
Oh the night is warm but I am cold

Oh from the fires of Hell I hear the haunting cries
Eh reminding us of this night of nights
Oh these feelings come to me from deep inside
Eh the Hounds of Yeth lead the Midnight Ride
Oh as the energy sends shivers down my spine
Eh I see the cycles of my life
Oh can you ever tell fate from destiny
Eh this night both can set you free

The stars they shine so bright
A mystery we cannot light
The difference from wrong and right is forgotten tonight
So now we know for sure the hunt is on this night
Annwyn is really there and will be for all time
The spirits of the dead shall fly to Avalon
The yellow eyed Hounds of Yeth howl on

And it seems like England in the days of old
Oh the night, the night is warm but I am cold

Oh from the fires of Hell I hear the haunting cries
Eh reminding us of this night of nights
Oh these feelings come to me from deep inside
Eh the Hounds of Yeth lead the Midnight Ride
Oh as the energy sends shivers down my spine
Eh I see the cycles of my life
Oh can you ever tell fate from destiny
Eh this night both can set you free
Oh I do hear the cries inside my hazy head
Eh The Rowan Fires summon up the dead
Oh the air is filled with horns of warriors bold
Eh they ride the sky searching for lost souls

Halloween in the moors here on Shining Tor
Halloween in the moors here on Shining Tor
Halloween in the moors here on Shining Tor
Halloween
Halloween

A night of conquest summoned
But this we did not know
We fly on demon horses
Collecting all lost souls
The winds of mighty Annwyn
Blow in from coast to coast
The Hounds of Yeth are calling
To all the wandering souls

Some souls are lost forever
But some still have a chance
To ride with ancient warlords
Across these blessed lands
The Rowan Fires are burning
The Hounds of Yeth lead on
The Wild Hunt has opened
The Gates of Avalon
