Gladiator's Tale Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Sisslith
1. Into Eternity
A father’s last story of the betrayal that ruined their land
Although the past is gone, the future lies within his sons grasp
He just has to realize it

When your light is gone I will shine forever
Blinding their sight with our victory

With the morning light they came, bringing fire and destruction
Swords and spears striking down with force, damnation by their hands
Our land lies barren dry, nothing grows or ever will
A way to ensure our death for generations to come

Now when you gaze upon the world, do you see what I see?
Illusions of history, the remnants of our home.
Now it’s time to leave behind what is wrong and what is broken
Now the time is here my son, you will make them pay for what they´ve done

Yes now the time has come to ride into eternity
I have finally realized

When the darkness falls I will charge right into Rome
Hiding in the open I will bide my time
When your light is gone I will shine forever
Blinding their sight with our victory

I have to go, I’m gonna leave this world, forever fighting on
Forever strong into another life, time to be free again

When your light is gone it´s my time to shine
I will be free for eternity
2. Phoenix Arise
The flame Inside him that where quenched long ago is once
again ignited by the memory of his father’s word.

Out of the darkness forever, the night is finally gone
Ascending to the next level, time to reap what’s been sown

Somewhere lies it all, the key to who I am
Lead me through the trap you´ve set
I´ll fool you in the end
Dead and gone still I will revive

Spread my wings like a phoenix I´ll rise
They spoke of truth just to feed me with lies
My ashes will remain, as a sign for all the pain
Spread my wings like a Phoenix I´ll fly
The wounds will close when I pull out the knife
Nothing is forever, like a phoenix I will rise

Gladiator of Rome on the surface
But with vengeance in my heart
When it’s time your neck meets my sword
Your blood will stain the floor

Deep inside your mind
You know what you will find
I will judge you in the end and as you burn in flames
Dead and cold, I have just revived

Flying away like a phoenix
Dead and gone
Fly away
Phoenix arise
3. Unity
The seemingly endless journey takes its toll on his soul
But in the darkest hours his father’s spirit walks beside him
Whispers of the past and the time to come
Encouraging, scaring and forces him to press on

Standing at the gates that leads me to your heart
Will you open it, or close it forever?
The key is in your mind, remember where it lies
And I’ll be there beside you when you open up your eyes

Running out of time, lost inside the void
Falling deep, to eternal sleep

Running in the dark, on a road that is unmarked
Seek the light, we must survive
And make it out alive

The fire in my heart burns forever
Nothing in this world will tear this apart
The truth in your voice cries like thunder
Together for this final fight
In Unity we ride through the night

Walking down the path that takes me straight in to your mind
Where the memories we shared lives forever
Clouded is your sight, it comes as no surprise
For the enemy has poisoned the air with his lies

Trust me with your life, open up your eyes
Remember now, spread your wings and fly

Right here by your side is no need to hide
Brace yourself for this final fight
Our world must survive

The fire in my heart burns forever
Nothing in this world will tear this apart
The truth in your voice cries like thunder
Together for this final fight
In Unity we ride through the night

Standing all alone
Looking in to your eyes as life fades away
What will I become when there is no one left to die for?
Is this the end for us my friend or will we meet again?
4. Let Me Die
Faith turns and with a broken spirit and no hope of survival there
seems to be only one way out

On the path to the heart of Rome
On my own away from home
I’m caught alive and dragged to this dome
Chained and enslaved, forced into battle
Never to fulfill what I’ve pledged

Running out time, it’s too late
I won’t return again
I will never be the same again

So let me die
Let me break away from madness and decay
So let me die
I will leave this life in peace and harmony
So let me die
Let me show the world the way
And save a million tears
So let me die
So let me show
Let me break away to live another day

No remorse and no regret
I have played the game as it was set
I’m a warrior of god, born to fight
This is the way I’ve lived
This is the way I’ll die
With my blood-red sword raised to the sky

Running out time, it’s too late
I won’t return again
I will never be the same again

So let me die
Let me break away from madness and decay
So let me die
I will leave this life in peace and harmony
So let me die
Let me show the world the way
And save a million tears
So let me die
So let me show
Let me break away to live another day
5. Slaves in a Holy War
Trapped inside the Coliseum
All hope seems lost but yet he fights on
Hoping his mission will succeed

Help me now, I stand alone
Forsaken without of faith
An unmarked grave awaits

I am growing weak
I cannot find the strength to carry on
I just wish I could lay down for a wile

I was born to fight and I fight to stay alive
Out of blood and dust a new man will arise
I pay the price

Brothers in arms we are born without fear
Beyond the life lay eternity
When night turns to day, the darkness will fall
We live under the spell of the call
We are slaves in a holy war

As the day goes by
I think of home and life I left behind
I close my eyes and I’m there, inside my mind

But my faith is sealed; it needs me to stay strong
On the battle field that’s where I belong
So hear my cry

Brothers in arms we are born without fear
Beyond the life lay eternity
When night turns to day, the darkness will fall
We live under the spell of the call
We are slaves in a holy war

Women and children they run for their lives
Men called to arms they are ready to die
Charging with hammers held high
We ride in like a storm from the sky

Brothers in arms we are born without fear
Beyond the life lay eternity
When night turns to day, the darkness will fall
We live under the spell of the call
We are slaves in a holy war
6. Chains of Blood
Out from the darkness, carried by the gods
A new hope rose inside the gladiator
And the taste of victory awakes his hunger for freedom

As the days are growing darker
And the stains of blood dries up
And my heart is broken
I remember my call
I remember my promises

And follow my heart’s desire
And carry my steel
Cause now there’s no turning back
Through fire and blood I must go

Oh oh oh
Heading out for war
Oh oh oh
To break the chains of blood
Oh oh oh
Brothers heed my call
Oh oh oh
Let’s ride out to break the chains
The chains of blood

For too long I have been trapped
In the shadows of my mind
With no hope of glory
I was destined to fight,
Taught the way of the warrior

To ride with my sword
Pressed to my steel
Cause now there’s no turning back
Through fire and blood I must go

Oh oh oh
Heading out for war
Oh oh oh
To break the chains of blood
Oh oh oh
Brothers heed my call
Oh oh oh
Let’s ride out to break the chains
The chains of blood

Oh oh oh oh
I’m breaking chains of blood tonight
I’m breaking chains of blood tonight
I’m breaking chains of blood tonight
I’m breaking chains of blood tonight

I’ll carry my steel
Cause now there’s no turning back
Through fire and blood I will go
7. For the Glory
On a blood soaked ground, In the final fight,
he crushes his enemies and wins his freedom

Down in the wasteland
Of the deepest despair
I battled my way
Through blood and dust
In this filthy and unholy game

But I have seen the truth, I have seen paradise
And that’s the reason why I shall arise

For the glory of the king
For the glory of the gods
For the glory of our beloved home
For the honor and the pride
For the truth I will ride
For the glory of all mankind

By the mercy of the emperor
Through courage and strength
And a heart made of steel
I am free at last
From this filthy and unholy game

Because I have seen the blood, the pain and agony
And that is why I’ll slay my enemy

For the glory of the king
For the glory of the gods
For the glory of our beloved home
For the honor and the pride
For the truth I will ride
For the glory of all mankind

I hear them calling out my name
I hear them cry for Liberty
I heed the call
I carry on

I am the only one, who can restore the realm
I am the only one
8. Gladiator’s Tale
The stories of the mighty warrior from the north spread throughout the whole Empire
Who was he and could he ever be defeated?

Here I stand, in the fields of insanity
I walk my path, the warrior’s way
Until my final day

The air is cold and the winter is drawing near
In the bloodstained snow, lay my shattered soul
Never to be whole

My journey started ages ago
Raised by hammer and sword
Bred to fight with the steel in my hand
I stand where all else will fall

A storm has come it has brewed for millennia
Let their will be done, for it has begun
So stay behind my shield

Pushing on, through the bodies and uniforms
I’m the last to stand, for my king and land
I will never fall

I will watch how darkness succumbs
With power and might I will strike
And when the dust has finally set
They will sing from heart to us all

He is the chosen one
The savior of our time
He fights for freedom for all
He roams forever free
Through the lines of history
It’s a gladiator’s tale

I will hunt them down and make them pay for all
I swore an oath to protect and to serve
Run, my time is an endless game
You can try to hide but I have you in my sight
9. Warrior of Steel
Tired from running and fighting he kneels before the gods
Praying for power and wisdom to carry out the quest he once sat out for

Here I am, born as a warrior
Lost in this empire where love and truth is by long forgotten

Hear me now, as I bow my head
Ancient gods from above give me strength to avenge our slavery

Searching for a light inside the dark
Shadows of fear
Watching as the emperor grows strong
I must go on

And be true to what I know is right
And be true to myself
And be true for all mankind to see
So I’ll be what I’m meant to be

I’m born to be a warrior of steel
No one can deny me my destiny
I’m born to ride on wings of fate
I'll make them believe, I'll force them to see
I’m the warrior of steel

On my knees praying for wisdom, honor and pride
To charge right into the dragon’s den

So I’ll be true to what I know is right
So I’ll be true to myself
So I’ll be true for all mankind to see
So I’ll be what I’m meant to be

I’m born to be a warrior of steel
No one can deny me my destiny
I’m born to ride on wings of fate
I'll make them believe, I'll force them to see
I’m the warrior of steel

I know I have failed sometimes before
I know I have stumbled and fall
But still I carry on
Still I carry on
10. Born out of Despair
The darkness that once was a deadly poison is now a vitalizing injection.
Use whatever means necessary to reach the goal.

I have lived for eons, I have walked by your side
Your lies has lead me here
I know thy nature, I have looked in to your eyes
Felt the darkness that grows deep inside

I can grant you your deepest desire
Let me forge your destiny in fire

Born out of despair
Into this world falling forever
Run, you can’t be saved
You are my slave
Lives will be torn apart
Your sympathy, it belongs to me
I’ll grant you an epic war
There’s no end in sight
I’m the fading light

I can see your envy, you want what they have
It can all be yours
I can give you glory, I can make your dreams come true
Just say my name and I’ll be there

Gold and flesh, to your desire
Your soul is all that I require

Born out of despair
Into this world falling forever
Run, you can’t be saved
You are my slave
Lives will be torn apart
Your sympathy, it belongs to me
I’ll grant you an epic war
There’s no end in sight
I’m the fading light

Your empty life is crumbling with the sands of time
I will always walk by your side till the end
Freedom dies on the other side
I will wait for you in the dark
In your mind, I whisper lies
I will live forever
11. King of the Sky
In the final hour he has found a way into the chambers of the emperor.
His lust for vengeance and the favor of the gods makes him unbeatable.

War was forced upon our people
An intruder infected our soil
His armies stretched to the horizon
We were outnumbered a hundred to one

But we fought him hard
He grew weaker by the day
We watched as fear grew in his eyes

And we saw the light
That shined on us all
With the wind in our back
We cried out a freedom call

God of wind, rain and thunder
Tear this infidel asunder
Give us wing and make us fly
Hail to you
The king of the sky

Now I’m heading to heart of the dragon
To get our vengeance and return our land
When he will see the flame that burns deep inside me
Than he will know his empire will fall

So remember all
How we fought and died
For man to be free again

From tyranny
Oppression and hate
In victory our memory remains

God of wind, rain and thunder
Tear this infidel asunder
Give us wing and make us fly
Hail to you
The king of the sky

Through strength of man his world will crumble and
His time will come to an end
For I prepare to die
With the sword still in my hand

So say what you will
I see through your lies
I’ll never surrender
Your here in my sight

Come what may come
I'll stand and fight
For you are the darkness
And I am the light

In history they will not read
That the victory came through the deeds of man

God of wind, rain and thunder
You tore this infidel asunder
You gave us wing and made us fly
Hail to you
The king of the sky
12. Farewell
At the very end, when the fight is finally over and won and justice is done
he embraces his own death and meets his father in the afterlife
Great deeds will echo throughout history.

When you close your eyes
Do you see what I see?
The empire in flames
And when you turn to walk away
Is our mission now complete?

I trusted in steel
Greatness awaits me
See the hammer fall

Soldiers charging in
To serve and protect
An empire burning
I have done what I’ve came do to
Fulfilled my dying fathers wish

The blood burns within my veins
I see the light so clear
Glory in death awaits
Today I have no fear

To my friends I say farewell
But I will remember you
Until the day I die
Because this is my destiny
I'll be on my way to a land far beyond
So this is farewell

Oh I go into the world of metal
Let me go into the world of metal

To my friends I say farewell
But I will remember you
Until the day I die
Because this is my destiny
I'll be on my way to a land far beyond
So this is farewell
