Stratovarius Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Maniac Dance (4:35)
This year has been a nightmare
I've been so low, I don't care
I've dwelled in depths of darkness
Swam across the ocean of pain

I've fed the tabloids, the media
It's a bottomless pit, a redia
Front pages, gossips, knifings
Drunken nights and days

Sadness, Rage, Hopelessness
I am nothing without you

Again the dance
I do the Maniac Dance
Just like in trance
I do the Maniac Dance

These demons serves me well
It wants to send me to the depths of hell
A roller coaster ride it has been I can tell

I'm a walking miracle of medicine
A real catastrophe on legs
A proud member of human race known as the dregs

Xonax, Remeron, Therapy, Buspiron
Anger, Fear and Shame

Again the dance
I do the Maniac Dance
Just like in trance
I do the Maniac Dance
2. Fight!!! (4:03)
Fly the mountains
Pictures on my back
Hopeless feelings
Everything is black

What am I fighting for?
What am I living for?
(There) is a path that I don't know

You gotta fight!!!
Fight for your life!
Until you die!
Fight for your rights

Endless searching
In this cyber space
All is turning
Into a disgrace

What am I searching for?
What am I running for?
(There) is a path that I don't know

You gotta fight!!!
Fight for your life!
Until you die!
Fight for your rights

Fight for your life!
Until you die
3. Just Carry On (5:28)
Time goes by
But you can’t rest
Too many things
And you’re obsessed
Trying to find
Some sense to it all

No one knows what you’ve been through
Like no-one cares
But it’s not true
Turn the page
And make a fresh start

When you are low
You should know
You are not the only lonely soul
And you will find
The strength inside
There is no more need to hide

Just carry on
Fulfill your dreams
Don’t let them try to pull you down
So carry on
And reach your goal stand proud
Don’t give up
March on till the end
The road is long but you’ll reach the final bend
4. Back To Madness (7:43)
Another winter day is gone
I’m lying here all alone
There are many like me here behind these closed doors

Somehow I lost the way
Fear just led me astray
Deep into the labyrinth of my warped mind

I lost all of my belief
And I felt my spirit break
Through the rain, storm came over me

Back to madness
I go back to sadness
I go back to madness
There is no return

Must go back to madness
Must go back to sadness
I go back to madness
Will I ever learn?
What I don’t recall I will repeat

Have you ever been hurt?
Have you ever been abandoned?
Have you ever been truly scared?
Have you ever felt you don’t belong here?
Have you ever felt like you don’t have a home?
Have you ever felt you don’t have a chance?
From the moment of birth we are already dying
Death is the only true salvation
Through death man is reborn
Like a butterfly is born out of a caterpillar
And after that, man is finally free
5. Gypsy In Me (4:28)
I was sent out
To the world
From the mission
I just returned
The dust has not settled down yet

I thought I could have some rest
But I feel like I am possessed
I shouldn’t be complaining coz I am blessed

Must have been the Gypsy
The Gypsy in me

All the pressure
On my shoulder
I can feel
It makes me older
I’ve given everything tonight
Is it enough I still have to fight
My heart is beating so fast
If this breath would be my last
Would I die happy or would I regret my past

Must have been the Gypsy
The Gypsy in me

Must have been a mistake
But I agreed
6. G?terd?merung (Zenith of Power) (7:13)
A failed painter, born to change the world
Beaten up kid swore his revenge
Whirlwind of chaos and destruction man has never seen before

Blind masses led like a flock of lambs
Deception, blinded by the lie
Another “saviour” of mankind showed us the way

Gargantuan monster
Spread terror, food for the guns

Obsession turned to hate
It was their final fate
Projecting, persecuting, murdering and conquering the world

A diabolical plan was created
Armageddon and the apocalypse
Six million people vanished in the air
For the cause of one man

Gargantuan monster
Spread terror, food for the guns

Zenith of power
Zenith of power – He changed the course of history
The final hour
Madness reigns

Zenith of power
Zenith of power – Remains forever a mystery
The final hour
Madness reigns
7. The Land of Ice and Snow (3:05)
The land of ice and snow
Where the midnight sun blows
Hundred thousand lakes glow
In the land of ice and snow

Northern lights guide our way
Come whatever may
Forest god protects our day
In the land of ice and snow

Where Koskenkorva flows
Where the freezing wind blows
Summer nights are white and warm
In the land of ice and snow

Some night say that we are cold
Don’t believe all that’s been told
Our hearts are made of gold
In the land of ice and snow

We didn’t bow under oppression
We fought and we died
Redeemed in blood
The land of ice and snow

Here I was born and here I’ve lived
And one day here I will die
Under northern starry sky
In the land of ice and snow...
8. Leave The Tribe (5:42)
Listen to what I have to say
We could get out of here today
I’ll take you with me if you want to go
New kind of place, just let me know

I am a man, I’m not a child
And I am free, ‘cause I can feel

We just have to get away
We have nowhere left to stay
We can run and we can hide
We just have to leave the tribe

Doing things in our own way
We’ll just let the others stay
Those who fought and those who lied
We just have to leave the tribe

Leave the tribe!

Everything is always the same
They try to make you play their game
“This is the way”, you’re being told
But hear me out, you can’t be sold

And still they roll like pigs in the mud
While you have the fire burning inside

We just have to get away
We have nowhere left to stay
We can run and we can hide
We just have to leave the tribe

Doing things in our own way
We’ll just let the others stay
Those who fought and those who lied
We just have to leave the tribe

Leave the tribe!
9. United (7:02)
We drifted apart on the sea of life
Sailed into new horizons, out of sight
We lost the way, we lost the key
But the spirit was kept alive and free

Now destiny has brought us back
We are here before your eyes, we hear your cries
And that’s why tonight we all make history
We’re together again calling you

United we stand – divided we fall
Our destiny’s here tonight with you all
Through wind and thunder we sailed to your shore
We did not give up, so open the door

‘cause we’re united
We stand united

It’s great to look into the eyes of a friend
And shake his hand and thank him for the years
And it’s great to see you all here
We’re together again calling you

United we stand – divided we fall
Our destiny’s here tonight with you all
Through wind and thunder we sailed to your shore
We did not give up, so open the door

United we stand – divided we fall
The sun is shining for each and for all
The future is bright and there’s hope in the air
Together we’re singing, together we care
