R-Evolution Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. King of Shadows (Orpheus) (4:09)
Every chord like a beating hammer
Meant to be heard from down under
Every note is a promise of war
Sent straight through the other shore!

She was young, she was mine
(She was) made (of) honey 'n' musk
She's been taken by the dusk

My guitar roars, my voice won't quiver
I'll sing a song without shiver
That none on Earth would dare to play!
I cry, I die, I loose the way

Her hair was long
Her touch was light
She doesn't belong
To cold and night
I'll break the walls
I'll crush the doors!
Silence through the caves
Flows across the waves

Old and dark file tree
Give her back to me!
Or I'll come till the halls of Hell
Where the grey King (of) Shadows dwells!
2. Steam Power (4:49)
My father died
Chocked in his own blood
None spoke. I held his hand
Boss came, barely looked:
"Now shut up 'n' stand!"
"Back to work", "back there now"
"Engines never stop!"
I was seven
I was ready for
Worker's heaven!

Mother doesn't speak
She has empty eyes
She looks at the sky for stars
Someone told her
Those are the souls
Of her countless dead sons
I wonder if they cough
Above the sky
If this cloud of coal
Can fly so high

Don't ask me about politics
I find hard to be critic
No it's not some kind of wisdom
I just picked the way of freedom

Rods, shafts and wheels
Whistling white steam
Burns down the throats
Runs, breathless along the roads

If you call this evolution
Still if misses a conclusion!
But time will pass and I will grow
Sure I'm not meant to forget, oh no!

You made me pitiless, you thought me hate
I raise my fist, red in the night
Scythe and hammer, more than you can chew
Open the doors, let's pass through

Come to me, come alone
Come and we will see
Who'll stand and who'll he prone
Who can grip the whip

I'm a drunk musician, playing on the road
Just the last minstrel of despair
Sailing along the river of farewell
Black water that leads but to hell...

...to hell!
3. Southern Seas (5:14)
As a matter of facts, you are right:
Here there are no
Days, nor nights...
(Still) be good, don't bark: snow is soft 'n' bright
So take a run
Jump (in)to the white

Endurance is a ghost of light
Crunched and swollen, lonely and dread
There she lies, cold and dead

South Pole - he said - right over there
A tiny line
From nowhere
South Pole - he said - just follow me
Write your names
In history

But he'll be back
His eyes can't lie
We sit 'n' pray
(And) slowly die
My Captain, our
Fearful trip's done
The prize we sought
Now is won...

If I will ever go back there
To Annascaul or county Clare
I will build an inn, I swear!

Ice bites
Wind blinds and burns
Captain, they wait
For you to return

(Please) don't be late
Their hopes do not spurn!
Captain, they wait
For you to return
4. Salem (4:39)
Three magnolia leaves, one ring
Love charm or cruel spell
It is the proper morning
To fly to hell!

From night to eternity
Love has countless shades
Never trust a promise sealed
With short breath and moaning sights
Through the darkness of the night

God is far above
Deals with saints and wars
We sell herbs and spirits
Just as children play, in a world of men
How else could it end?

Softly she said:
"Men are stupid beasts,
mine is the breast
where he must quench his thirst"

Why is he back
To his old wife's bed?
You must know how to bring back
Spilled water to the well

Three magnolia leaves, one ring
Love charm or cruel spell
It is the proper morning
To fly to hell!

Human kind
Watch over the night!
We haunt the crossroads
We switch off the lights

Nothing in her eyes, not a word nor a lie
Damnation rides through her hips
She knows no promise, no compromise!
Heaven on her lips

Nothing in her eyes, not a word nor a lie
Those eyes so deep and wide
Black pools where I do want to sink and die
Just another time

Three magnolia leaves, one ring
Love charm or cruel spell
It is the proper morning
To fly to hell!
5. The Road to Tenoochtitlan (5:23)
Oh, I could sacrifice one thousand virgins
Black blood dripping down these stepped pyramids
And not a single god would answer my call
Demons from hell, prisoners of a fairy tale

You, Quetzalcoatl from Tule
Blonde and bearded god
Who brought us back the rules
That we long forgot
We close our eyes and see
What we dream to be
While you bring through the forest
Famine, rash and pest

Montezuma is weak
On his throne he sits
While these Spaniards kill
At their own will!
We shouldn't ignore death
She follows our steps
She sends smiles and signs
She will never rest

Walks Death on the road to Tenochtitlan
Slowly walks towards Aztec's last stand!

Cries Cortés under a tree, cries his only love
One thousand people dead, for each ounce of gold
Quetzalcoatl holy snake, every feather is a fake!
But I'm just a priest, hidden in a floating nest
6. Grim Reaper (4:24)
Really, you should not be so scared
It was written, even before your were

Time bends his knees, in front of me

Through my empty eyes, I've seen them all
Same fear, same cries, when they see the wall

Disappear into the night
The Shadow and the Scythe

How do you dare ask (the door)
What you'd prefer to ignore?
I'm the gate, I'm the guide
I don't see the other side

I don't stop, I don't rest
Please come over, be my guest
I don't care if you bleed
I don't have pride to feed

Time bends his knee, in front of me

Would be too easy (to) fade away
Every action
Has a fee to pay!

Don't pray me again
Don't waste your faith
I'm just the door, I am the gate

How do you dare ask (the door)
What you'd prefer to ignore?
And if you want the truth
Ask a child about his youth
7. Light Brigade (2:35)
Riding through the barricades, / to an empty open space
Forget a brighter morrow, / forget of joy and sorrow;
Just ride on
Not to make reply
No reasons why
But to do and die

Riding through the barricades, / to an empty open space
Sabres high to draw a line / that none will cross again
Close your eyes, it will be fast, / we weren't made to last
Oh it's senseless, we all know, / just don't think, wait the blow
Always ahead
Through the jaws of Death
Till the gate of Hell
Rode the six hundred

They shall not grow old, time won't change
Days will not wear their steady hearts
Mirrors won't show the years condemn
We'll remember them

Now war is gone, war is over
We're back to the sands of Dover
And we feel as all survivors
Life's empty savour
But one had to stay
To remind the way
Our Light Brigade
Rode straight through Hell's gate
8. Dark Angels (4:51)
Angels in the night
Struggling to survive
Light from the hammer, flying spark
Angels in the night
Tired to be all-right
Scared souls hidden in the dark

Wingless angels, black thoughts
Always hidden, always caught...

Angels in the night
Barely alive
You may find us everywhere
Chained in the night
Fighting eternal lights
We have a dream, a dream to share

We are angels in a half
Between madness and a laugh

Sons of the night
Sharp and bright
Beaten, blinded by the light
Deadly aware
Ready to share
What we want and what we were

We are angels in a half
Between madness and a laugh

Walking through empty halls
Climbing on scary walls
Crossing the last suburbia
Brave hearts that cannot fly
Looking for a corner in the sky
Where everything can ever be

No this can't be true
It cannot be only me!
Still I won't surrender
There's a world to render
Sometimes even a wingless
Angel is required
To mind a legion of heroes
Tired and worn out
9. Revolution (4:48)
Time to stand, time to change
Turn around, break free
Like a wave from the darkest sea
A thunder rolling down
Through the stormiest night
It's a word of power, source of light

Revolution! Logic conclusion
A whole world to rearrange

Didn't they see the signs?
Why were they surprised
The day they finally realized?
We're all the same: same blood
Same bones, same rotten guts
Crowns and shields, where are your holy rights?

Revolution!
Revolution!
No preclusion
Right conclusion
My dear Jean-Jacques
Francois-Marie
Could you just see
You'd be with me

But, really, this is not
the way t'was meant to be
What did it happen to you and me?
Holds you emperor the same crown
Kings used to wear
Headless bodies, soldiers everywhere

Revolution / Last illusion
For a world that cannot change

Revolution!
Revolution!
Last illusion
Cold October snow
Egalite
Fraternite
then Liberte
"Nevermore", said the crow

Revolution!
Revolution!
Last illusion
For a broken soul
Egalite
Fraternite
Then Liberte
Words and nothing more
10. The Mark of Cain (4:38)
There's a little girl on Market Square
She walks alone, bare feet. She's not scared
But don't try to look into her eyes
She fastens her coat and never cries

From Dachau to Sarajevo
There is just a bridge to cross
That leads from pain to madness
My sons will never learn
They just can't recognize a warn
Nor I think they'll ever see
Till they walk as long as me

I've seen your innocent bones
Turning into holy dust
I've seen useless promises
Revenge, greediness and lust

From Dachau to Sarajevo
There is just a bridge to cross

I've scavenged what I couldn't harvest
Walked since the beginning of times
Without the slightest hope (ever) to rest
'Damned to witness my own sons' crimes

From Dachau to Sarajevo
There is just a bridge to cross
Over and over I did
Till the memory was lost
All is quiet now, silent too
People cannot see the pain
Death always comes in vain
11. The Viol and the Abyss (5:45)
Don't look through the window
No matter what you hear
Don't lurk in the shadow
Don't listen to your fear

I shall stand and rest
While you go till the last
Play another tune, mad viol of doom

(Viol of doom!)

Hidden behind the door
Darkness flows all around
Music melts to the core
Bounces to the ground

I shall stand and rest
While you go till the last
Play another tune, mad viol of doom

Leaping, floating, flying down
Through endless stairs
Where every step you take
Leads to the abyss - (that) will make you break

Play old man, never stop
Ward them off from the light
Delirious, desperate
Free thoughts crossing the night
Crawling to madness gate
Through every word you write
Play old man, never stop
Ward them off from the light

I shall stand and rest
While you go till the last
Play another tune, mad viol of doom

Leaping, floating, flying down
Through endless stairs
Down to the narrow street
From deepest darkness / to reality

I'm old and tired
I'm rather scared
Make this nightmare end
Let me climb and stand
Any escape (is) but a pitiful illusion
From an old prophecy
That wasn't meant to be

...wasn't meant to be...
...wasn't meant to be...
12. Across the Mountains (4:08)
(Viva Mexico, cabrones)

I had to run, refuse my name
Still gun's the right decision
Maybe I regret, sometimes
My lack of precision

Listen Jack, old friend of mine
Everything is gonna change
But don't ask me how or why
Philosophy's out of my range

Adelante companeros!
Por mi tierra e por mi sueňo
For my dream and for my land
Let's ride till the end

My father died between regrets
Now sand covers his footsteps
(But) I've things to do before I die
And my name is going to stay

Listen Jack, old friend of mine...
Yes, call me "Pancho", take more wine
Diaz had trains, Wilson lots of planes
(But), as you (can) see, they weren't me!

Ride through the desert
Across the mountains
Rings the bell at the old mission
Rings for me

Adelante companeros!
Pot mi tierra e por mi sueňo
For my dream and for my land
Let's ride till the end

When I'll be old I want a ranch
Quiet cigars under the porch
But for every story written
There is a Judas hidden

We all were simple people
Ripped out from the land
But we knew it was the time
To stand up and raise our hands

Ride through the desert
Across the mountains
Rings the bell at the old mission
Rings for me

Adelante companeros!
Por mi tierra e por mi sueňo
For my dream and for my land
Let's ride till the end

Don't let it end like this
Tell them I said something
Francisco "Pancho" Villa
13. Tsuhima (6:20)
Admiral Togo stands on the deck
He has two swords
Wears a white kimono, a long scarf
Around his neck
Admiral Togo looks around
He does not speak
Flames green and blue through
(The) morning hue

We walk slowly in loosy rows
Broken boots digging in the snow
Blinding sun through frozen tears
Fall on your knees, forget your fears

I should have stopped at Nossi-bé
Dark girl, speak to me...
Seven months of verminous food
On a rusty clad
Mother Russia, my Tzar
This was not a war
You booked me a date with Death

Let me sleep, let me go
I've killed, I've did
Can't believe I loved snow
When I was a child

This rail never ends
Saint Petersburg
Shines on the other end
Calm down, do not fight
Lay on the ground
Don't fear the night

We walk slowly in loosy rows
Broken boots digging the snow
Blinding sun through frozen tears
Fall on your knees, forget your fears
