Spectral Rider Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Turn the Screw (5:19)
Can you tell me what you see?
Are you sure what you believe?
In the workshop of the mind,
Oh, the horrid things you'll find
There...in the dark

Hopeless castaway, herding her dismay
Sheltered there but constricted
Tell me what you see, and do you believe?
Or are you still conflicted?

It's just a turn of the screw...just an illusion threatening you
When all the madness overwhelms you,
just sit and turn your screw

Hands are closing in, when the lamplight's dimmed
Is he just an illusion?
Specter in the night, that can rend your life,
Steal your soul and twist your mind

It's just a turn of the screw...just an illusion threatening you
When all the madness overwhelms you,
just sit and turn your screw
Turn the screw

It's just a turn of the screw...just an illusion threatening you
When all the madness overwhelms you,
just sit and turn your screw
It's just a turn, a tunr of the screw

Can you tell me what you see?
Are you sure what you believe?
In the workshop of the mind,
Oh, the horrid things you'll find
turn. turn, turn the screw
turn, turn, turn your screw
2. Spectral Rider (5:07)
From the seat of power, they dubbed you an animal
But how they'd lowly cower, when you'd profess your right
They tried to steal your diginity, and sell it off for souls
But you'll leave them lying dead in their own foxholes

You've got no choice so fight your fate, you're damned to roam

Spectral Rider burn your way, for the rights of the innocents
Spectral Rider bear the law,
to the world's fallen angels you call

From the claws of justice, you rent loose revenge
And when you turned the corner, you sent them to a bitter end
They tried to burn your freedom down, with no identity
But your rebellious spirit heir was ever meant to be

You've got no choice so fight your fate, you're damned to roam

Spectral Rider burn your way, for the rights of the innocents
Spectral Rider bear the law,
to the world's fallen angels you call

Recycle the night, like a god reborn, steal the child of light,
bring the world a storm

Spit their bit of pity, let them taste your end
Crucified in a devil's city, teeming with discontent
Once you steal a damned child, you can never take it back
But you'll rise in fire with the souls they all lacked

You've got no choice so damn your fate,
you're free forever to roam

Spectral Rider burn your way, for the rights of the innocents
Spectral Rider bear the law,
to the world's fallen angels you call
Spectral Rider burn your way,
though you know not what you've done
Spectral Rider bear the law, the curse of life is upon you all
3. The Wicked Way (5:23)
The witch lies in the details...so you'd better be vague
And the easier the serpent talks...
the more willing serve slaves
When the lies are frosted...then they'll all eat the cake
Especially if you tell them that it's...good for heaven's sake

So give and trust their lies...or it's just a sin
And don't look for the whispers just open your ears to the din
And follow their way
...follow their Wicked Way

Their death lasts just a short while...the grave they'll refuse
Their kind will always rise again
as long as there's someone to use
And veiled in the cloak of heroes...they'll bask in the shade
As little ones freeze and cower...and their fortunes fade

Now give in and trust their lies...or it's just an evil sin
And don't look for the whispers just open your ears to the din
And follow their way
...follow their Wicked Way
4. The Masque of Black Death (4:14)
Sins of salvation, all pay the price
Cast to damnation or freed of vice
All robed in torment, but they feel the lies
There's something evil their behind his eyes

FIRE and brimstone
BLOOD and hellfire
CALL to worship
Behind the black veil

They pass a leader that they despise
A specter bears his cross to hypnotize
A public crucified by their surprise
Bow as the acolyte for the rest of your lives

The true salvation is all for one
cast down the wicked ways and join the fun
We'll meet in sanctuary to pave the right
Witness the dawning of a prince of light
5. Ravage Part 1: Damage (2:29)
Termination...from the skies...firing down on you
Will kill the planet...many will die...not just a chosen few

So purge the world of its innocence...all die and make it wrong
As power from its heavenly blow sets you where you belong

Damage

Kill the earth that was the plan...eliminate mankind
And fuel with sins the fall of man...at the end of time

So purge the world of its innocence...all die and make it wrong
As power from its heavenly blow sets you where you belong

Damage

And mankind will see...what was wrought in its end
Salvation for the world...the rebirth of its soul

Damage... all
6. Wyvern (4:57)
Born on the night of one thousand stars,
trained in the ways of his people
Making a journey, no matter how far,
fighting to free them from evil

Wyvern... a gift by his birth
Wyvern... protector of earth

A call to the ancients brings forth his gold sword
The might and the power of a dragon warlord
But fighting for freedom, justice and law
For the bearer of truth holds the power of a god

Wyvern... a gift by his birth
Wyvern... protector of earth...no more

Perhaps he was too bold... he challenged the old wyrm
Its mighty power took hold of his soul,
and the mighty wyvern he was no more

His deeds shall not die, they'll live on where good men lie
His soul flies the plains and there forever remains

dragon flies on...dragon flies on...the dragon man flies on
7. Incantation of the Necromancer (1:36)
Rise...rise, my fallen sons, and take revenge on the livingones who have betrayed you all. I call the names...forgotten.
8. Wake the Dead (2:35)
Graves begin to open, and souls begin to float
The ended lives are flowing, drifting as they go
The war it now has ended, the crusade now is done
The warlords now have fallen, the bishops had their fun

So Wake the Dead...Rise from the ashes
Wake the Dead...wander onward

The fallen soldiers cry out...their wish is to return
The fire burns, the rain fall soaks, when will they ever learn?
They joined a vicious battle...digging their own graves
You can't escape the massacre and you become its slave

Now wake the dead...Rise from the ashes
Wake the Dead...wander onward
Wake the Dead...Rise from the ashes
Wake the Dead...wander onward

The dead will wake, they'll rise once more
they'll come from graves or from the shore
the ships and tanks oh they will sink down
but nothing stays forever...in the ground

So Wake the Dead...Rise from the ashes
Wake the Dead...wander onward
Wake the Dead...Rise from the ashes
Wake the Dead...wander onward
9. The Wasteland (5:14)
Trepidation treads, fate weaves its threads
As cautiously they stalk the sands
Men in line count grains of time
As wicked fevers callous minds

Now they forge the weapons
For the end they're looking toward
But it's buried in the barren fields of endless bloody war

If you can bear to look you'll find the truth
Trapped in the wasteland
Branded sadly clear to view
We're scarred in the wasteland

The world unwinds the black cloud blinds
As evil men plant their mines
Lie in fear, the end stands near
But all its meaning left behind

Now they forge the weapons
For the end they're looking toward
But it's buried in the barren fields of endless bloody war

If you can bear to look you'll find the truth
Trapped in the wasteland
Branded sadly clear to view
We're scarred in the wasteland

And cautiously the sink in the sands with ghosts that they'd allied
While home the black heart's glowing...
trapped amidst the tide
Of their wasteland...in their wasteland
If you can bear to look you'll find the truth
Trapped in the wasteland
Branded sadly clear to view
We're scarred in the wasteland
10. Bring Down the Hellhammer (3:08)
Can you find the power in the black depths of your mind?
If you could the you would see we're running out of time

The vengeance is coming
to purge the world to black
the evil is rising
you know it's on the attack

Bring down the hellhammer
set this world ablack
burning down its victims as the enemy attacks
Bring down the hellhammer
set this world ablack
burning down its victims as the enemy attacks

As the fires vanquish all the earth is laid to waste
Endless mind's destruction as they churn our brains to paste

We destroyed ourselves
You can't blame the devil
We are left in hell
We ignored the warnings

Now our souls are screaming as fall into the pit
We didn't know the consequence now we're in deep shit

It will end in fire
It will end in ice
feeding our desire with it's death device
11. The King Forgotten (7:54)
"Beneath these castle ruinsI sit alone upon my throne.
The time of glory is past, and I am nothing now.
Before me lies the future, but just how much is in my hands?...
I can't tell.
I've only to grasp the stones... to take their power...
to live...Forever!!!"

I am free, I can travel to the ends of time
But I've lost my soul, lost my spirit, and my mind
I'm a god, no I'm a devil... I'm in purgatory
This is what I wanted... this is what I feared

I am the king forgotten
I am the ruler and captor of myself
I am the king forgotten
Left with all the power, I'm left in this hell

Snowy daze, the ruinspiling deeper every day
I wish to leave, but how I pray to stay
No way to end it, the stones the wizards gave me are my curse.
Forevermore....
But how long could that be?

I am the king forgotten
I am the ruler and captive of myself
I am the king forgotten
I left with all the power, I'm left in this hell

Spread through the cold, cold, void of heaven
Traverse the endless planes of hell
To reach the at last the bounds of never
Forgotten memories... known so well...Forever!
12. Curse of Heaven (4:49)
Time...drifting away...
our glass of life half full...emptied now
There...you've got to stay...
dreamingin your world...conflicted here

Fall...your idols sway...as ghosts of empty grey...
call as we pray
Dream...your endless fear...
the visions of your past are coming clear

What have you got to say?
Can't say it here
You're at the root of fear

All you ever wish you knew was just a curse of heaven,
hiding the truth
in the shadow of the few, you can lift the curse of heaven,
it's blinding the truth... binding you
