Time of Truth Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Prologue (1:54)
instrumental
2. The Storm (Ulysses) (5:00)
Sails in the darkness
Wind is blowing
Through their wooden bones

Wild demons riding
On the waves
Rain in the eyes

We don’t fear to die
Long ago we died
Our king to follow
Through the waves till the end of the endless sea

Oh, seven years have passed
From the day we left
Seven years so fast
From Troy’s shores

Soon they will take us down
We know it too well
Because no path comes back
From hell

But again he stands
Right on the deck
He looks, talks and checks

So great his fame
He has no name
He will bring us back

These offended gods
He will not fear
Itaca somewhere

She will wait for him
(But where is she?)
And will you wait for me?

We don’t fear to die
Long ago we died
Our king to follow
Through the waves till the end of the endless sea

SOLO

Oh, seven years have passed
From the day we left
Seven years so fast
From Troy’s shores

No they won’t take us
They won’t tonight
Itaca again
We’ll see

Oh, seven years have passed
From the day we left
Oh seven years so fast
From Troy’s shores

Straight he keeps the timon
He fears no demons
Itaca is over there
Just there

Oh, seven years have passed
From the day we left
Seven years so fast
From Troy’s shores

No they won’t take us
They won’t tonight
Itaca is there
For me.
3. Time to Pay (5:29)
Blasphemous eyeless
He stand in silence
Lurking into darkness
With patience.
When a call is answered
When a deal is signed
There is a fee to pay
Now run away!

Walking on the edge of story
You’ve got ages of glory
Too late to pray!

Armies for your ambition
Walking through the Earth
A secret pact to pay

Day doesn’t last for too long
Sun will fade away
Who will the night belong?
Too late to pray
Just sing another song
Sky is turning grey
Who will the night belong?
Too late to pray.

You know I am coming
Now switch off the candle
Make it easy to handle
It’s time to go

The high king fears the night
Walks through rooms and halls
Never switches off the lights
Till dawn comes

Walking on the edge of story
You’ve got ages of glory
A bit too late to pray

Armies for your ambition
Walking through the Earth
A secret pact to pay

Yes look behind the door
Carefully watch around
From the wood down to the strand
Can you see me?
The high king fears to die
But no soldier nor lie
Will force the day not
To turn into night

You know I am coming
Now switch off the candle
Make it easy to handle
It’s time to go

The high king fears the night
Walks through rooms and halls
Never switches off the lights
Till dawn comes
4. Morgana, Again (5:21)
Maybe I never existed,
Maybe I will never die
Surely Saxon won’t pass by
Scared (as they are) by an innocent lie

My bones lay forgotten
In enemy land
Hidden in coffin
Of sand

And since my heart was cursed by
A cold sigh of careless love,
I wait, lost in enemy land
The touch of your merciless hand

Oh Morgana,
Lost in the night
Terrible sight.

Here in the rain
I wish you could just
Betray me again

While the pale ghost of your eyes
Painfully fades away
Through the shadows of time
Everything turns into grey

My bones lay forgotten
In enemy land
Hidden in coffin
Of sand

Oh, Morgana
Lost in the night
Terrible sight

Here in the rain
I wish you could just
Betray me again

Oh, Morgana
Lost in the night
Lady in white

Oh, Morgana
-Whispers a man-
See you again...
5. 13th of October 1303 (5:09)
Jacques de Molay sat in the darkness,
Just a rainy October day,
Thirteenth of October, thirteen’o’three.

A soldier knows when it’s no good to fight.
So he said and his sword nodded silently.
A soldier knows when it’s time to die.

You heretics!
Betrayers!
In your dark temples
Who did you pray?
Inquisition
Will show the way.

Monks and warriors.
Saint or demons?
Greedness or glory?
No answers left.
Just memories
Of crosses and swords.

Square and compass.
Compass and square.
In the house of Saint Clair.
Square and compass.
Compass and square.
But God is everywhere.

Jerusalem
Years ago
You have a secret
I want to know
And gold and lands
For Philip the King.

Crucifixion,
Painful honor,
Even for a knight.
Strong is my faith,
Weak are my bones.
Tell me what to say…

Square and compass.
Compass and square.
And stars, stars are everywhere.
Square and compass.
Compass and square.
But for whom and where?

Square and compass.
Compass and square.
In the house of Saint Clair
Square and compass.
Compass and Square.
But God is everywhere.

Thousands tonight will surrender or die.
Others will eventually hide away.
Templars! Templars! Lost in a forgotten past.

Jacques de Molay sat in the darkness,
Just a rainy October day.
Thirteenth of October, thirteen’o’three.
6. God Knows (5:09)
So many friends have gone.
Without a trace they left.
I looked back, I was alone.
Just another farewell.

My tired bones need a home.
Maybe I’d find the way,
If just I could remember
Where do I come from.

I asked the dusty road
Where was she taking me.
Oh, everywhere, she said
But for going back home

So, I asked the copper bell
Resting on the tower,
For how many good friends
She sang her sad g’bye.

I need to know. I need to know why.
Only God, yes, God knows.

This is the land
Of eternal Fall
At least Winter
Hides a hope

So, I asked the greasy earth
Of the graveyard
Where do dreams fade away
When a dreamers dies.

So, I asked the white rabbit
Running across the field
How a minute can change
Even a worthless life.

Destiny’s sweet voice
Like a final lullaby
Softly sang on the shores
Of a long life.

I need to know. I know to know why.
Only God, yes, God knows.

I cannot stand another good bye.
But God knows, God knows why.
7. As Far as We Can See (4:58)
Seven days walking down
Following a star
As far as we can see
Nor the shadow of a tree
Frozen lands
Cold endless nights

We sailed West the fifth of May
(Such) A windy day
Was a sad goodbye
To the Caledonian coasts
Just a day and
Skelling’s view was lost

Land of nothing, desert of ice
Which secret, should you hide?
Walk, men, look down.

Land of nothing, desert of ice
I dreamt about you twice
Walk, men, look down.

Seven days from the coast
Our hopes were lost
Through the frozen land.
Seven corpses in the wind
Seven stories
None will (ever) sing.

Second day of November
Now I’m alone
I can’t remember.
It would take a younger heart
When all is gone
To keep despair apart

A drunk sailor tale
Brought me here to die
In such a frozen day
I wish it was still May.

SOLO

A drunk sailor tale
Brought me here to die
Just seven sad sights
Lost in the winter wind

A drunk sailor tale
Brought me here to die
Just seven frozen tears
Hidden in a frozen see

I remember your grey eyes
I remember other tears
And a land forever green
And its now forbidden shores.
8. Give Me a Hero (7:05)
I can’t remember when
I’ve lost my faith
A day in November
She came
Bringing winter
Ice and snow with her

Now all is fake
Like careless love
Every smile has a price
To pay
Fatality
Plays with life and death

Lady of liars
Queen of winter
Dark enchantress

All what is gone
Wasn’t meant to be
So she told me!

But I am a warrior
I need to believe
Not to understand
No way
Just give me a hero
A bird of prey
A guide to follow, to obey

Lady of liars
Queen of winter
Dark enchantress

All what is gone
Wasn’t meant to be
So she told me!

Lady of liars
Queen of winter
Dark enchantress

All what is gone
Wasn’t meant to be
So she told me!
9. Your Law (5:07)
One hundred times I died
One hundred more I will
Why should I fear your law?
Soldier, tell me, should I?

It’s lower then the voice
Of this endless sea.
It’s nothing compared
To the voice of the wind.

Your law, that stands
In front of justice
As a sight against
The eastern wind

Your law, that stands
In front of justice
Like a broken shell
In front of the ocean

I can not read your laws
But they will fade away
This was my father’s land
My sons will walk on it

Your law, that stands
In front of justice
As a sight against
The eastern wind

Empty echoes
Of empty words
Empty echoes
Of bitter words

Your law, that stands
In front of justice
Like a broken shell
In front of the ocean

Empty echoes
Of empty words
Empty echoes
Of bitter, bitter words.
10. Prometeus (4:42)
Now, right now, I only want to die…
Shouldn’t my time come, at last,
To vanish
In the dust?

But men have no memory, gods no mercy.
Only the fire I gave them
Will burn
Forever on Earth.

Eagle, stop for a moment,
Eagle, stop, listen to me.

Do you know which was my crime?
Do you know what is my name?

Gods where scared by men, tiny shining souls
Always asking “Why?”
Wide eyes,
Staring at the sky

Unbearable pain, endless, eternal.
I’ll never have a rest,
Claws deep down
Into my chest.

Prometeus, forgotten gold,
One millions years he lived.
Men raising from the mud, he saw,
Standing and screaming “no!”

Father of gods, whatever you will do,
I gave then a choice,
Now they see:
They want fear you!

Eagle, silent eagle, eating my liver
Forever regrowing
Tell me why
I cannot die.

We got the light, we got a chance.
Trough the night we will see,
To break this eternal dance,
To be finally free.

Scared gods, can you chain the fire
Like arrows from a bow,
Arches of light in the night,
Sparks will fly and grow.
11. Soliloquy (Warlord cover) (4:44)
(Warlord Cover)

I feel the pain inside my heart
Like a knife it tears me apart
My tears they shed I have no one
God, please tell me what I have done

I have no friends, no one who cares
Nobody with love they can share
They laugh at me! I don’t know why!
I lock the door and I cry!

I see myself I am a man
just like you and all of your friends
My heart so warm shattered like glass
Don’t know how much longer I can last

I have no friends, no one who cares
Nobody with love they can share
They laugh at me! I don’t know why!
I lock the door and I cry!

Alone again! I’m…alone again!
Alone again! I’m…alone again!
Well that’s how it will be ‘til the end.

So when I die no one will care
I ask you do you think that it’s fair?
Soliloquy! Well that’s my plea
Won’t someone please believe in me?

I have no friends, no one who cares
Nobody with love they can share
They laugh at me! I don’t know why!
I lock the door and I cry!

Alone again! I’m…alone again!
Alone again! I’m…alone again!
Well that’s how it will be ‘til the end.
12. Like Dinosaurs (4:43)
People in the street
Sleepy or awake
Noses up, bare feet
Someone cries or shakes.
Wind’s blowing on the lake.

What are they doing?
Wonder in the sky?
A new stars shining.
It’s fast and bright!
Burns in the summer night!

President wakes up
Sees a light outside
Quickly asks is wife
Who did authorize?
Like dinosaurs, we’ll go!

It’s just a remake
It happened before
Just a bit too long
We’ve been around
Without a word, we’ll go!

Oh, what a big bang!
All is going to change!

Sudden as a quake!
Everyone’s awake!

Democratic stone
Coming from the sky!
Everyone the same,
Waiting for the end
Cities of dust and sand.

It’s just a remake
It happened before
Just a bit too long
We’ve been around
Without a word, we’ll go!

Just a brief flame,
Flying like a plane!

Just a tiny stone,
And everything is gone.

Oh, what a big bang!
All is going to change!

Sudden a quake!
Everyone’s awake!
