Death & Legacy Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Set Sail To... (Intro) (0:29)
2. New Horizons (6:49)
3. The Chevalier (5:32)
[Thomas Buchberger, Mario Hirzinger & Georg Neuhauser]

When silence comes and I focus all on the inside
I take a look into my past
Full of wrongs, full of rights
The story of my life
So many different places
Enjoyed so many Nights
I dance with chances
I made my way
Until this present day

You are one I'd give my life for
You are the one who is haunting my dreams
(Haunting my dreams..)
Oh, how I long to be yours forevermore
For all time our love shall be prime

I still see you dancing...

That night in that shiny hall
The same old boring Gentry
Then you caught my eyes
You played your game
Used all your sweetest words
I was entertained,
But tell me are they true

Things they say about you
A mason and a spy
He knows all beds
Escaped the leads
Oh, Chevalier tell me another lie

You are one I'd give my life for
You are the one who is haunting my dreams
(Haunting my dreams..)
Oh, how I long to be yours forevermore
For all time our love shall be prime

Hold me
(How can I?)
A game
(like all your gambles?)
The only
(until this day is gone?)
Hold me
(How can I?)
A game
(like all your gambles?)
What can I do to change your mind?

You are one I'd give my life for
You are the one who is haunting my dreams
(Haunting my dreams..)
Oh, how I long to be yours forevermore
For all time our love shall be prime

I'll make this vow tonight

I see all lights are low
Show me I have to go
Venice can ease all my pain
Will do so once again
4. Far From Home (4:48)
5. Heavenly Mission (5:24)
[Thomas Buchberger, Mario Hirzinger & Georg Neuhauser]

When silence comes and I focus all on the inside
I take a look into my past
Full of wrongs, full of rights
The story of my life
So many different places

You are one I'd give my life for
You are the one who is haunting my dreams

6. Prayer (Interlude) (1:22)
7. State Of Siege (6:48)
It comes again
When the temples are shining in golden light
And day fades away
Deep inside
There's a feeling that i have not chosen well
My role in this play
All this time
I have been a good soldier whose will was strong
So i played my part
A painful song
Is the cry of a friend as they raise the knife
To cut out his heart

[bridge:]
I've never tasted fear but now i know
Fearful nights and days of woe
Our raging treasure hunt has ended here
What's the use of all gold when death is near?

[chorus:]
State of siege
A peaceful ending out of reach
Our vessels were burning on the beach
The general, he left us no choice but to die in this land

In their eyes
We were heralds of gods who would bring liberation
Far too late
They did realize what we bring is damnation

[bridge:]
I've never tasted fear but now i know
Fearful nights and days of woe
I've heard my promised piece of land's right here
I'll resign it, my friend, my death is near!

[chorus]

[canon, line 1:]
Hear me, god, i am a simple man who's praying for a chance to return home again
Oh i've shot so many men, i'm sick of killing, save my life, get me out of this land
[canon, line 2:]
Hear me, god, to stay alive
Hear me, god, i am a man who's praying for a chance to stay alive
[canon, line 3:]
Save my life, i'm sick of killing

[chorus 2x]
8. Changing Fate (5:42)
So ends the tale of a hero
with a true English heart
Of a man who knows pain and sorrow
and the fortunes in life
Villain, then hero, then scapegoat was I
Once I was knighted, now my star disappeared
in a darkening sky

[Chorus 1:]
Never feared the enemy
not on land, nor on sea
Beating loud inside me, I can't negate
I've been always fighting for,
for my Queen forevermore
the empire's blade for a changing fate

This news is too disappointing
to ignore it, Sir Drake!
Sunken ships and twelve thousand fallen,
a disastrous mistake!
You've been a daring, reliable man (I'm still that man!)
upright and loyal to his Queen and land
Now our union must end

[Chorus 2:]
Never feared the enemy
not on land, nor on sea
Beating loud inside me, I can't negate
We've been always fighting for
our land forevermore
The empire's blade for a changing fate

… the island's fate forever
May England's people ever
know well our names and honour
our legacy …

Will now the overrun armada rise again?
Finally tide has turned
I fear the menace of invasion is at hand …
Hear me now, I have learned my lesson, please be gracious
I shall never fail anymore!

[Chorus 2 3x]
9. When Canvas Starts To Burn (4:48)
We can't deny the signs clearly showing the times are changing
Floods rise and comets fly
Is this the end?
Is judgment night?

[Bridge:]
Drawing lines and colours true and fair
I create a mirrored universe

[Chorus:]
I see the world through different eyes,
that's the painter's soul and mind
My hands are guided by a force
some would call divine
A gifted man, but I know
there is still so much to learn
And in some dreams canvas starts to burn
when I touch it

I've been to foreign lands
in north and south where legends dwell
But perfect harmony
remains a mystery, hidden well

Drawing lines and colours true and fair
I create a mirrored universe

I see the world through different eyes,
that's the painter's soul and mind
My hands are guided by a force
some would call divine
A gifted man, but I know
there is still so much to learn
And in some dreams canvas starts to burn
when I touch it

Drawing lines and colours true and fair
I create a mirrored universe

I see the world through different eyes,
that's the painter's soul and mind
My hands are guided by a force
some would call divine

I see the world through different eyes,
that's the painter's soul and mind
My hands are guided by a force
some would call divine
A gifted man, but I know
there is still so much to learn
And in some dreams canvas starts to burn
when I touch it
10. Serenade Of Fiames (4:55)
I'm glad we're talking face to face
You know i've got a job to do
And i expect some help from you, too
Soon you'll call them in to torture me
Why do you need this privacy?
You'll have your horrid joy anyway

[chorus:]
One more night and then in flames you'll die
Nothing you can do or say could change your fate
You are mine!
One more night and then in flames you'll die
We invented lucifer to spread the fear
Across the nations

I can't negate the evidence
They say you've healed a little girl
With guidance from another world
Then a good deed, now my last mistake
You tell me my reward's the stake
Is this the christian duty you preach?

[chorus:]

You've been caught in our system of power and fear
We will break your resistance, your confession is near

Malleus maleficarum [4x]

Don't you think god is watching?
Your carnival of lies won't last eternally
Trust my words, if he's watching he has never showed
And he won't take your soul ...

[chorus:]
One more night and then in flames i'll die
Nothing you can do or say could change your fate
You are mine!
One more night and then in flames you'll die
We invented lucifer to spread the fear
Across the nations
One more night and then in flames you'll die
We invented lucifer to spread the fear
Across the nations
11. Youngest Of Widows (4:08)
She found her homeland, she's heir to the throne
She fought all her battles alone

1567, there's a lord lying dead on frozen ground
Who did pull the wires in this plot? will the murderer
Ever be found?

[bridge 1:]
Maybe she knows more than she pretends to know
About his passing
Who says a queen does never lie?

[chorus:]
She found her homeland in chaos and war
The youngest of widows, a heart deeply sore
Raised far away, but heir to the throne
She fought all her battles alone

1587, winter's grey, hatchets lay by scaffold's side
Wears two rosaries, dressed in black she appears,
Face veiled in white

[bridge 2:]
Guilty for high treason, that's the reason for the execution
Now by the hangman's hand she'll die

[chorus]

[solo]

[chorus 2x]
12. Below Eastern Skies (Interlude) (1:35)
13. Beyond Desert Sands (4:54)
'Unbelievable' - that's what they say when I speak true
then they jeer at me like fools may do
So deplorable, this narrow-minded ignorance
I won't tell them how my story ends

[Bridge:]
Tell me why should I lie
as I'm going to die
All my memories are true, I swear

I remember them, the kingdoms of the rising sun
and I still hear the sound of silver chimes
Gold and ivory, precious gems and silken robes
marble palaces from sunken times

[Bridge]

[Chorus:]
Illusions, all troubles and tears?
Had I been dreaming my life for seventeen years?
So many wonders I've seen
roaming the far eastern lands beyond desert sands

My second life had begun
in the service of China's great Khan
As a respected and far-travelled man
I would see my dear homeland again

[Bridge]

[Chorus 2x]
14. To India's Shores (4:34)
She wears a ruby necklace
She's got those emerald eyes
Her pace is graceful and her words are wise
Hoping my pleading could get the treaty signed
I tried so hard and failed again
Then something's changed her mind

[chorus:]
So my time has come
Nothing is impossible, it can be done
A course no navigator's sailed before
To india's shores

The conquest of granada
Impossible, they said
But she has courage no one's ever had
She proved them wrong and so will i
My dream will never die

[chorus:]
So my time has come
Nothing is impossible, it can be done!
I'll sail into the west and showing everyone
That nothing is impossible, i'll be the one
To find a course no navigator's sailed before
To india's shores

When i close my eyes
I see cities made of gold
In a land where nobody grows old

[chorus:]
So my time has come
Nothing is impossible, it can be done!
I'll sail into the west and showing everyone
That nothing is impossible, i'll be the one
To find a course no navigator's sailed before
To india's shores
15. Lament (Interlude) (0:40)
16. My Legacy (4:45)
Light has gone
I'll never see the sun again
My days will be as dark as my nights
A question burning in my mind:
What is left to do for the observer when he's blind?

The telescope was my obsession
I longed to see the wonders of the sky
Moon and sun and jupiter's companions
The milky way in all its splendour, stars numbered high

[bridge 1:]
I know the key to the book of creation
Wandering a dark maze are those who don't know

[chorus:]
All those years in shame and in torture
Self denial has clouded my ways
Verity comes as time is passing
I'll fade away but my legacy stays

To illustrate all that surrounds us,
Unveil the glory of our maker's plan
This i thought to be my only mission
A different picture of the world, a blessing for mankind

[bridge 2:]
I tried to open their hearts and their eyes
A trial in rome swept my good hopes away

[chorus:]
Sight is gone
I'll never see the world again
My days will be as dark as my nights
Still a question in my mind:
What is left to do for me now, old of age and blind?

[bridge 1]

[chorus]
