Return of the Snow Giant Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. And the Battle Begins... (0:39)
instrumental
2. Snow Giant (3:12)
Cold and frozen plains
Winter storms and druid games
From another time, in a distant time
Ice men bold with ice and blue steel
Mages spinning northern spells
Cast upon the world, an ancient magic world

Oh watch the Northern lights
Beyond the solid sea
The Snow Giant here is found!

The Snowy realm with snow white king
Where many venture just to see
If they can have it all, the kingdom and the throne
The giant lives but all alone
No winter knights to guard his throne
Here upon the top, the top of the world

Oh watch the Northern lights
Beyond the solid sea
The Snow Giant here is found!

Seasons pass unnoticed
The light of endless day, or dark of endless night
A king without a quest, Noble and alone
Content within his soul, the Keeper of the Chest

He stands alone to guard his home
The hordes of men to claim his throne
Upon his land they come, the wicked and the wrong
With firebolts and magic swords
Invaders storm the snow-capped fort
But all to no avail, the giant knows it well

Oh learn the lesson well
Told in this Northern tale
The Snow Giant wins once more

Snow Giant! (4x)
3. Hell Hath No Fury (3:05)
Hell hath no fury
Like a craving women denied
She'll breach your defenses
and then burn you alive

Hell Hath No Fury!
You can't run you can't hide
Hell Hath No Fury!
In the eye of the storm you will fall

You can't escape it
If you're caught
you’ll never return
Cause she's out to get you
In the end, her wrath will descend

Hell Hath No Fury!
You can't run you can't hide
Hell Hath No Fury!
In the eye of the storm you will fall

So beware, and heed they call
In the night, fight with all
Of your might, and you may withstand
Strength tonight, its in your hand

Hell Hath No Fury!
You can't run you can't hide
Hell Hath No Fury!
In the eye of the storm you will fall
Hell Hath No Fury!
You can't run you can't hide
Hell Hath No Fury!
4. Starcastle (5:30)
Long ago, where clouds are lined with gold
There lived a King, whose realm was good and all was well

His castle was among the star of the Parthenon
His Queen and princess were all he did pride

Come to Starcastle, the people said
The King is Jude, his rule is good
Where all is just, and truth is right

Starcastle (3x)

Jude's guard of knights, all pure at heart
Helped Jude keep his kingdom right

The King's advisor, who helped Jude rule
The faithful Wizard, who's name was Saraphin

Come to Starcastle, the people said
The King is Jude, his rule is good
Where all is just, and truth is right

Starcastle (3x)

But in the world, there is a force
That tries to undo good
And many men, though good at heart
Let evil enter their minds...

Come to Starcastle, the people say
The King is Jude, his rule is good
But something's wrong in the wizard's mind

Starcastle (x3)
5. When He Comes (5:29)
He has risen, from his grave
No decision, Satan's slave

He has power, when he's one
He was vanquished, from the son
Now he stalks us, all mankind
Killing all who, show his sign

He has come with forces strong to take our land
He will try with all his might to kill off man
Ruthless tactics he's employed he steals the night
In darkest shadow his flaw is found he fears the light

People smile as he walks on by
Scared to death too much to cry
All the time they shake and stare
They know too soon he will be there

I could see a sign of life in the skies
Heaven knows it's much too late, no more lies
I feel his breath, the stench of war, rising fast
Dawn comes soon I hope to God, we just won't last

People smile as he walks on by
Scared to death too much to cry
All the time they shake and stare
They know too soon he will be there

Now you've seen the truth and light, don't be late
Christ has come to tend his flocks he just can't wait
He has come to kill the beast and save all man
Now in peace forever more the Earth will stand

People smile as he walks on by
Scared to death too much to cry
All the time they shake and stare
They know too soon he will be there
6. Metallic Madness (3:46)
Electrical sunrises scold the landscape
Neutron pillars support the gray
Metallic leaders all giving orders
All mankind must obey
Oh, Mister Computer, program me right
So I may be the last man to turn out the fucking lights
Fallout clouds you know they fill the air
Radium rain still shines clear
Metal war lords as gods we fear
Wails of sorrow pierce the ear

Oh, Mister Computer, program me right
So I may be the last man to turn out the fucking lights

(Guitar solo)

Acid pools of toxic wastes
Hold mankind God's one disgrace
We wreak of poison, gaseous fumes
Haunts us here in our stainless steel rooms

Oh, Mister Computer, program me right
So I may be the last man to turn out the fucking lights

Hear my Metallic Madness, it's my Metallic Madness
Hear my Metallic Madness, it's my Metallic Madness
Hear my Metallic Madness, it's my Metallic Madness (turn out the lights____)
Hear my Metallic Madness, it's my Metallic Madness (turn out the lights____)
Turn 'em out, turn 'em out!
7. Blackness (4:17)
The dark falls like a curtain
The landscape cold and lonely
As I stand before it
I cannot speak and I feel as if I can't go on

Scream my name
Someone screamed my name
Have I gone insane?
Am I insane?

Blackness!
Lost in the wasteland
Blackness!
I'm lost in this wasteland

With blackness I am one now
Deception my best friend
I move on past the tower
I'll take your life in the blink of an eye and move on

Go insane
You all shall go insane
Feel the pain
You all shall feel my pain

Blackness!
Lost in the wasteland
Blackness!
I'm lost in this wasteland

(Guitar Solo)

Freedom is in sight now
Escape, soon I'm free!
The power seethes within now
I'll break the curse and set free all who have been enslaved

Silent screams
Bloody silent screams
Destroy the enemy
Destroy my enemies

Blackness!
Lost in the wasteland
Blackness!
I'm lost in this wasteland

Blackness! (8x)
8. Ogre Wizard (3:39)
In a forest dark and dreary stands a castle of brick and stone
And within the Wizard and his Ogres plan their wicked chores
In the town the people hide to save their meager, little lives
For they fear the mighty Wizard and his Ogres rough and dry

Run, oh run, you little people The Wizard's band arrive
Run, oh run, you little people The Ogres do arrive

"There is little you can do
But not unlike the bird that flew
You can do it, you can try
Or the Wizard says you die"

Down the pass from mountain high through the forest, battle cries
Ogres, Ogres everywhere the stench of war hangs in the air
The people flee, the children hide none to stand, to fight, to die
The Wizard's strength is much indeed, the people know his word to heed.

Run, oh run, you little people The Wizard's band arrive
Run, oh run, you little people The Ogres do arrive

"There is little you can do
But not unlike the bird that flew
You can do it, you can try
Or the Wizard says you die"

(Guitar solo)

Down the pass from mountain high through the forest, battle cries
Ogres, Ogres everywhere the stench of war hangs in the air
The people flee, the children hide none to stand, to fight, to die
The Wizard's strength is much indeed, the people know his word to heed.

Run, oh run, you little people The Wizard's band arrive
Run, oh run, you little people The Ogres do arrive
9. Mark of the Wolf (8:53)
Walking alone into the dead of night
Bathed in the golden glow of the full moons light
My senses are warning me of a presence unseen
It's hard to tell if it's real or just a dream...

Twisted trees casting shadows of fear
Why have I come to this place--why am I here?
Something is telling me that I am not alone
I must remind myself that I'm far from home...

Moonlight--bathing the night in it's glow
Instinct--primal and deadly unfolds
I can see movement now from within the trees...
My pace soon quickens--now I must flee

Torment burning its way through my brain
Ancient curse now inflicting its pain
It is upon me now this nightmare beast from Hell
I scream but no one comes--I know this all too well

The air is crisp and clean but my blood is now running cold
Overwhelmed by fear so great consuming my soul

Wolfsbane looming in moonlight now prowls
Bloodlust, timeless and ageless now found
Am I now cursed to be more of a beast than man
Upon my chest the sign of the pentagram...

Gypsy woman please set me free
What have I done to bring this curse down on me
Doomed forever more to fear the full moon’s light
No longer human, but a beast in the night

Moonlight--bathing the night in it's glow
Instinct--primal and deadly unfolds
The hot and horrid breath of a hellish beast
The stream of liquid life has become my joyous feast

Mark Of the Wolf... (4 X)
10. My Disease (4:59)
What are you doing here again?
Do you honestly think that I believe you’re a friend?
You have ripped and torn the life I've known to shreds
Look into my eyes to see where I have been

I've got a raging storm in my mind
I've tried to leave it all behind...

You promised to make my problems all go away
Never to disappear they just keep growing each day
I may as well just throw my money into the wind
Your little white lies have turned into mortal sins

I've got a world of hate in my brain
Each day I grow a bit more insane
I need to have some kind of new release
I'm powerless against My Disease...

How many lives have you already destroyed?
Families torn apart and souls cast into the void
The Reaper's waiting for you to take hold of his hand
Can you read the epitaph from where you now stand?

I've got a raging storm in my mind
I've tried to leave it all behind
This craving brings me down to my knees
Driven insane each day by My Disease...

It's My Disease...
11. Trapped by Magic (6:34)
My eyes have seen a faded presence
Entranced, my soul, it has been
A cloudy haze still hangs around me
But he has gone forever, not a dream
Now to you I’ll tell my story
And weave a tale

I ventured on a moonlit evening
And came across him by a river
He bid me stay and greet the day
A lame old man in ragged clothing
Proceeded on to cast a spell

Trapped by Magic! (4 times)

The world spread out so strange before me
Felt the blood within me boil
Realms of gold would stand before me
And with his words then turn to dust
A lonely woman softly crying
But I couldn’t stop the tears

There came a shout from the sky
And what appeared before my eyes
A thousand Angels sweetly singing
The woman showed a little smile
What was this that I was seeing
Then back I came, the old man gone

Trapped by Magic! (4 times)

Trapped by Magic! (4 times)
12. Colossus (Island of the Cyclops) (6:22)
Watchout, Cyclops is loose
Beware, Cyclops is loose
Watchout, Cyclops is loose
Beware, Cyclops is loose

On the seas of the lost horizon
Where blood red rivers flow like wine
There is an island I know named Colossus
Mysterious land from forgotten times...

Upon the ridge of the giant Roc
Massive two-headed bird of prey
Here stands the lair of the Cyclops mighty
All human kind is doomed today

A single eye now watches closely
From the safety of his mountain home
No known weapons made can harm him
It feasts on human flesh and bone

One day came a mighty sailor
To seek the shell of the giant bird
An ingredient of most importance
To restore size to the Princess he served

One day came the mighty Sinbad
To seek the shell of the giant bird
He came upon the weakened Cyclops
Of this massive beast he had not heard

A fearsome battle soon began
Between the giant and the man
Sinbad fearless stood his ground
And through the valley came the sound

Sinbad The Sailor emerges triumphant
The awesome Cyclops has now met it's match
Never again to bring fear to the island
Ending his reign of dark terror at last...

On the seas of the lost horizon
Where blood-red rivers flow like wine
There lies the island that's known as Colossus
Mysterious land of forgotten times...
13. Overlorde (4:19)
It came so quickly, upon our land
Their ways and deeds, supreme command

Across the sea, amidst the horizon
Overlorde forever binds us

Out in the darkness, I hear them calling
Stand up and fight, our kingdom is falling
Must hold tight, I feel them draw nearer
Feel all their might, our defeat seems much clearer

Overlorde, drop to your knees
Your cities in ruin, we take what we please
Overlorde, destruction's at hand
Overlorde, supreme command

Now that we've taught you, all of our ways
I say you must listen, for short are your days

Overlorde, drop to your knees
Your cities in ruin, we take what we please

Overlorde, destruction's at hand
Overlorde, supreme command
