Time Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Nightmare Be Thy Name (3:28)
Master... You know I nerver pray
Master... Nothing can keep you away
Chorus:
Nightmare be thy name, Nightmare be thy name
The dreams... They always do come true
Second sight, and I don't want to know
Chorus
You got to stop this game... Before I go
In-sane... You drive me insane
You would follow me straight to the grave
And beyond... Oh yes you would
SOLO: Sharmann - Denner
In Hell, I see the fate of others
Break the speel, this night has been on forever
Chorus
You got to stop this game... Before I go
In-sane... Before I go insane
2. Angel of Light (3:37)
I have seen Him there
Master of Light, Master of the night
Master of all the things that shine
Chorus:
Oh I believe...
I believe in all that I have seen
And I have seen the Angel Of Light
I have seen the Angel Of Light... Lucifer
I have seen Him there
Deep down where the Devils dwell
Deep down in the darkest well
Chorus
I will make a second deal with the Prince Of Light
Never will break the Oath I gave that night
Shine in all your glory, shine your light on me
I have seen Him there
Deep down where the Devils dwell
Deep down in the darkest well
Chorus
3. Witches' Dance (4:47)
Just like a demon's eye
The moon was dancing on the blackened sky
In my sleep nothing is real, dreaming... I'm dreaming
I can feel the shadows lurking
I can feel them closing in
I can hear their evil chanting
This is not a dream for a king
Chorus:
Dancing the Witche's Dance... Dancing the Dance
Dancing the Witche's Dance... Dancing the Dance
Cold hands, leading the way
Through the woods and into the night
Outside nothing is real, dreaming... I'm dreaming
I can see a fire burning
Hooded shapes are all around
I can see a throne of silver
Thirteen we are in all
Chorus
Before the Goat Of Mendes... We all must take our turn
Into the magic circle... Where still the fire burns
We're spinning round and round... Until one takes a fall
The fallen one will not return, the fallen one must burn
Just like a demon's eye
The moon is dancing on the blackened sky
I'm awake but nothing is real
Dreaming... Not dreaming
I can feel the shadows lurking
I can feel them closing in
I can hear their evil chanting
This is not a dream at all
Chorus
I wish this was only a dream... A dream
Within a dream
Dancing the Witche's Dance
Dancing till Death
4. The Mad Arab (4:43)
PART ONE: THE VISION
The son of a shepherd, Abdul Alhazred
Travelling in the mountains, the mountains to the east
One night before him, there stood that giant rock
3 symbols carved in blood
He built a fire at its root
To protect him from the wolves...
The Mad Arab... He would understand
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands...
Later that same night, awoken by wolfen's cry
The Arab cold with fear, saw the rock began to rise... Rise
The son of a shepherd, Abdul Alhazred
Shivering he saw Them coming, the mountain's evil priests
Black robes came together, around the floating rock
3 symbols in the dark
They all started chanting ancient songs
It was prayer in unknown tongue...
The Mad Arab... He would understand
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands
Daggers held high to the sky
The chanting had turned to screams
From the pit where the rock had been
8 snake-like monsters came
And the priests burned in red
And the priest had turned their heads
The blood running from their chests
Had the Arab scream in horror... Giving himself away
The Mad Arab... He would understand
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands
Run down that mountain side, oh but they had seen him
The priests had caught his scent
Running faster... They're chasing him
Can't go no faster... They're still behind
Aaaah NO!!! They're closing in...
...TO BE CONTINUED...
5. My Demon (4:42)
This house is full of hate, this house is full of madness
This house is deep insane, this house was never mine
Chorus:
Deep in the dark you will find us
DEMON and I we are both deep inside
Yes My DEMON and I we are mine
All of the deadle kisses, all of the sick, sick, sickness
All of the broken mirrors, it's here to stay forever
Chorus
Chorus 2:
Come along... Come along, meet
My DEMON... DEMON... My DEMON... DEMON
The poison deep within, I can't let HIM out again
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore
So here we go again, digging the knife in
Who will be next? Who will be our next guest?
I hate that GOD damn cellar, I wish I never went there
It always was and will be, I cannot make it go away
Chorus 2
The poison deep within, I can't let HIM out again
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore
So here we go again, be my guest!!!
6. Time (4:22)
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Time... Time
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Time... Time
Time... Time... Time is always passing by
Doesn't matter where you are
Time is passing us by
What a beautiful moment
If you're willing to trade
Then I'll give you a moment of mine
Give you a moment of mine
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
(Time will never stand still)
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
(Time will never stand still)
Time... Time... Time is always passing by
Doesn't matter where you are
Time is passing us by
What a beautiful moment
If we took it away
We could use it on some other day
Use it on some other day
Time is here, Time is now
Time is here, Time is now
Time will kill... Time will heal
Time will come and go away
But time will never stay... Time will kill
Time will heal... Time will kill
Minutes and seconds are passing us by...
7. The Preacher (3:30)
You believe in Heaven
You believe the Devil is here
When you ring your demon bell
You think I'll en up in Hell
Chorus:
Oh yeah you're the Preacher
You're the Devil
You're the Preacher
Hiding in the Underworld, that's you
I can't wait to see your final show
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so
I believe you're crying
You're not the only one
Have you ever seen the light
I bet you're scared of the night
Chorus
I can't wait to see your final show
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so
Oh Yeah You're the Preacher
Yes... You're the Devil
You're in the fire
You're such a liar
If you had a soul to sell
I bet you'd end up in Hell
Chorus
I can't wait to see your final show
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so
8. Lady in Black (3:50)
On a magical misty morning
I was standing in the Autumn rain
Suddenly the birds fell silent
Would I ever hear them sing again...
Hear them sing again...
Without a word of warning
I saw a shadow in the Autumn rain
Just like in my nightly dreams
The Lady In Black had come again...
The Lady had come again...
Begging me to follow her into the misty rain
Begging me to follow her into the no more pain
Her eyes were hypnotizing
Burning deep inside my brain
The Lady In Black was here now
She was here to take me far away...
Take me far away...
"Follow me to the other side"
Through the tunnel of light we travel, fading away
Through the tunnel of light we travel
We're fading away
Through the light that's shinning bright
We're fading away
Through the light that's shinning bright
We're fading away
9. Mirror (3:19)
The girl in the mirror, she's not really there
Only I can see her, in all her misery
Chorus:
The girl in the mirror, she's caught in a spell
The girl in the mirror, between Heaven and Hell
Can't you feel it, those haunting eyes
She's so devine, could be magic of a kind
Chorus
Take a look in the mirror
Deep inside there's a world of its own
Take a look in the mirror
See what you might find
Try to reach my hand
Try to reach through the glass... Try... Try...
'Cause the longest journey is the one on your own
If we break the mirror, do you think they'll let you go
Chorus
10. The Afterlife (4:32)
Why am I here, in a quiet mortuary
A lady and man, flowers in their hands
Nobody sees me, I don't understand
Nobody hears me...
Seems like I don't exist
Seems like no one can hear me as I... Scream
I do not feel the way I used to be
Could it really be that the one I see is me
You gotta tell why people come but never stay
Could it really be that the one I see is me
Does it really matter... Do you really care
Why am I here, in a quiet mortuary
Listen to the bell, calling my name
Nobody sees, calling my name
Nobody hears me...As I... Scream
Why do I feel like I've been left behind
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
You gotta tell me why I feel like I've been left behind
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
Does it really matter... Do you really care
Why do I feel like I've been left behind
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
You gotta tell why people come but never stay
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
Does it really matter... Do you really care
11. Castillo Del Mortes (6:14)
Somwhere in ancient Spain
Close to what was BAECULA
There lay Castillo Del Mortes
To be known as "House of The Dead"
Oh no...oh not here
A fool was playing with magic
Magic he did not understand
He opened the unholy gates
Letting out the ancient ones from Hell
600 people standing on the castle walls
Screaming for mercy
Someone must have heard their calls
600 wondering what's going on
Two armies in the battle sky, forming and in battle line
Hear the battle cries
7 cohorts of angels, fighting for The Elders to win
7 cohorts of angels, fighting for the people within
The "House Of Dead" soon to be buried in sin
9 units of demons, The Ancient Ones command
9 units of demons, The Ancient Ones wll stand
For the "House Of Dead" soon to be buried in sin
600 were watching in horror as they began to fight
None of the armies were using a weapon
As it is known to man
Demons and Angels were falling in numbers
Out of the burning sky...The burning sky
"Retreat, retreat" Oh the Angels flee
"Defeat, Defeat"
The battle is over, it's done
Somwhere in ancient Spain
Close to what was BAECULA
There lay the battleground
Where many an Angel was slain
9 units of demons, bringing unbearable sin
9 units of demons coming for the people within
The "House of The Dead"
Will soon live up to it's name
600 people running deep inside
600 people trying to hide
From The Ancient Ones...
But there's nowhere to run on this day
There is no need to speak of the horrible fate
Bestowed upon the 600 from BAECULA
