Product of Imagination Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. Opening Theme (1:24)
instrumental
2. Paradox (4:16)
I'm a genie
From the bottle
A voice upon the raw north wind
I know you
If you heart is good
I'll also know if you have sinned
You can lead me
To a warhorse
See me riding on its back
I'll be with you
As you retreat
I will lead the main attack

Paradox?
No just a lie!

Paradox?
I wonder why

You will feel no joy
You will feel no pain
You'll never see the sun
You'll only feel the rain

I run with the wolves at midnight
I can stop the sun at dawn
I'm a king
A queen, a bishop
You are just my lowly pawn
I sing with the elves of Mirkwood
And I've watched the dragons die
I'm the king beneath the mountain
I'm an eagle in the sky

Paradox?
No just a lie!

Paradox?
I wonder why

You will never feel the power
You will only feel pain
You will never see the sun
Are you insane

Is it only common sense
Or is it the truth
Tell me, is it all a lie
Do you need to have the proof

Yeah!

Tell!!

You will feel no joy
You will feel no pain
You'll never see the sun
You'll only feel the rain

Gandalf rides
Fair shadowfax
Arathorn strides far and wide
Boromir stands by
The mighty oak tree
A hundred arrows pierce his side
I have formed the highest mountains
I have hurled a storm of rock
The world equates as paradise
To you it's just a paradox

Paradox?
No just a lie!

Paradox?
I wonder why

You will never feel the power
You will only feel pain
You will never see the sun
Are you insane

Insane!
3. Death, Screaming And Pain (5:09)
A story...

A cold night somewhere
Such a cold night
Hands held in fear
But it's going to be alright
It was a seance
But no one really knew
What they were doing
Or how they were to perform

No one knew why they were there
Tired, played out and scared

Fear numbing the brain
Windows drumming with rain
Shapes forged out of flame
Death, screaming and pain

Don't call on me
I'm not yours to see
You'll feel my power
And you won't be too pleased
I'm called by many names
None of them portray
The hate that's burning in my mind
The havoc I can play

I am the true Lord of Hell
Satan's my name, I'm king

Fears stab into their brains
Windows drumming insane
A candle is guttering flame
Death, screaming and pain

Hell!
Death!

Oh! The candles go dim
A great sound cracks the wall
A voice is heard saying
I'm coming for you all
Come down with me now
I'll give you your desire
But if you do not heed my words
I'll smother you with fire

Nobody followed the sound
They just stayed there and burned

A house that's empty again
Windows still drumming with rain
There's no one to see any flame
There's only death, screaming and pain
4. Product Of Imagination (7:15)
In concepts of space
We were an illusion
A second in the cosmos
A minute in real time

We spent our time in search of life
It was so hard

He started off too late
We were a dream
Product of imagination
By a god unseen

He knew that we would be destroyed
He felt so old, yeah
He knew this was his final chance
After years of trying to get it right
A dreaded foe would try to spoil
Homo sapiens on sight

He guided our direction wisely
Helping only when it was needed
Laying traps for all our enemies
No voice unheaded

Had to keep that satanistic man away

Everything he tried
Came to no avail
There was just destruction
At another's hand

He tried in vain
To stay the hand
Of his fallen brother
So he tried in vain

Had to keep the satanistic hand at bay, yeah
Can't let them fall
Can this be all
Everything I've tried
Can't let it ride
They should have a place in time
They should not end

Tried to help us through our life
Helping when we fall
Say those words of satan's wrath
Try to keep us whole
Aid us in the flight against strife
Comfort when we call
Cast aside the sins we make
Revel in our joy

Have to win this battle, satanists beware
Oh. we have the belief
Violence and power
Have a life to live
In an ivory tower

Had we had more time
We could have been more real
We didn't stand a chance
Because of powers unseen
Life was over before it had begun
God was wrong

They will fight through all of time
Cursing as they meet
Sending lightning across the sky
A panoply of heat
A battlefield through time and space
A fight of avid fury
Thunder heralds each new move
Only angels as their jury

The fight will last a millions years or more
We won't be here to tell
Or even keep the score
We can only hope
That we'll be here for more!

That's life!
5. Continuation Of Invasion (2:13)
instrumental
6. Mystery (5:05)
Trouble!
I saw it hanging in the night air
Exactly as it shouldn't
I prayed for it to go its own way
Allthrough I knew it wouldn't

Who can I tell
Who would believe me
There's no one else around
Something's changing
It's moving off now
It's not making a sound

Someone tells me I didn't see it
It was only a dream
Oh God! It's moving towards me
I think I shall scream

Where am I now
What am I doing here
What is this thing in the sky
Why does it want me
What have I done here
Why does it come for me now

Who could tell things would turn out this way...tonite!

I know why it's here, it's coming to take me away...tonite!

But why?

Mystery

Mystery
Mystery
7. Kill That Beast (4:27)
Massing on the borders
All over this small world
The big red bear is coming
The big red flag unfurls
Spreading mindless terror
Through puppets the world wide
No one really knows for sure
Who is on whose side

Kill...that beast!
Kill...that beast!

The bear is in San Salvador
He's out in Cuba too
He's marching on North Africa
Is there nothing we can do
See the eagle in his nest
Not knowing who its master is
Is it all the man in power
Or is it a disaster

Kill...that beast!
Stop...the spread!
Kill...that beast!

Rushing through the danger zone
Why can't you see
There's something going wrong
We have to move now
We can't sit back
Just like we have been
Doing far too long

We have the power
Should we use it
No mistakes now
Don't abuse it

Kill that beast!

We saw it in Afghanistan
We can't allow that to happen again
If it doesn't stop now it never will
We all just drown
In the nuclear rain
Nuclear rain

We have the power
Should we use it
No mistakes now
Don't abuse it

Kill that beast
Kill that beast!
8. Pray To The Godz Of Wrath (4:44)
The warriors of Asgard fly
Their seeds across the sky
Lightning snaps from shield and sword
The gods that never die

Helmets shining
Spears aligning
As they ride
Hallowed knights on golden chargers
Screaming as they say
Pray...to the godz of wrath

Speeding in the silver morning
Sunshine lights their day
Eyes a sparkle, spirits soaring
Nothing bars their way

Helmets shining
Spears aligning
As they ride
Golden gods on golden chargers
Screaming as they say
Pray...to the godz of wrath

Great swords swung against their foes
Cries of battle end the air
Thunder rolls across the sky
Of the gods of wrath beware

Helmets shining
Spears aligning
As they ride
Savage lords on golden chargers
Screaming as they say
Pray...to the godz of wrath
9. Beyond Space (4:48)
Out of time
Out of spacial, space
Out of time
We're a new race

We had to come
Across the nebula
We had to come through
A black star, we're right

We had to fall
Through a time warp
We had to fall
We had to fly
Through a star burst
We had to fly
We were in flight
We could not delay

We were in flight
Each and every day

Oh oh...
Not to worry
There's a new world there
Time to hurry
We may not have to care
If it isn't we will take it anyway
Beyond space, fight

Look!

We haven't come
This far to be scared
We haven't come
This far not to be there

We had to fall
Through a time warp
We had to fall
We had to fly
Through a star burst
We had to fly
We were in flight
We could not delay
We were in flight
Each and every day
Oh oh...

We don't worry
We don't even care
Don't have to hurry
It will still be there
If it isn't we'll find it anywhere

Beyond space - we will fight

We had to fly
Through smoke and clouds
We had to fly
Through a storm of dust
We felt that we'd come through hell
We didn't like it
We didn't want to stay
This wasn't what we needed
It wasn't good or right
It wasn't what we wanted
It wasn't light or bright
Oh oh...

No to worry
We have time to spare
Not to hurry
We don't have to care
If it's not good
We'll go anywhere, anywhere

Beyond space - fight!
