Melancholy Beast Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles (2017-04-30)
1. Sleepy Hollow (6:11)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

What's the price, Ichabod?
The price for your systematic denial of the underworld
You see what you want to see, hear what you want to hear
Slumbering behind your walls of false reality
with your life of manmade rules still intact
But what happens when you get confronted
with the shadows of the realm below?
Will you lose your head? (x4)
NO!!!!

I will not believe it
I will not accept this
I will not be fooled
It's manmade murder
There's no such thing as ghosts
It was the fog at most
Townsmen are lying,
but I'll look in further
Now, speak the truth
What's your secret?
Who's to blame for this murder?

What is it I see?
My eyes must be deceiving me - Deceiving me
One swing, another kill
His blade struck deep and I will
go mad if I don't look away - Away

'Cause the horseman arose from the dead
to serve the witch who took off his head
And the witch holds him chained to her spell
Makes him kill for her purpose as well
And the evil has been given a name
The demon is riding again

I must unleash the secret
I must face my fears
I must clear my mind
and find his grave
Now, who pulls the strings?
Who stole his head?
I'm sure he kills in someone's name

The tracks lead back to someone
with unholy powers undone
Evil flowing through their veins
Many heads are taken now
They're all connected somehow
One benefits from wicked things
From wicked things

'Cause the horseman arose from the dead
to serve the witch who took off his head
But she held on to his soul too long,
and the evil must now be undone
I reveal you witch, now you've cast your last spell
He knows who you are, you'll join him on his way to hell
2. Forsaken Kingdom (5:27)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

Welcome into my empty mind
to the ruins of old times
See what once was but is no more
Dreamspace of what should last upon
But the dreamers were failing
It was destroyed all to the core

I am the last, keeper of the past
Holder of the ancient knowledge
And I have been left back until time is no more
(x2)
I guard the ruins once fair as sunrise
Now this kingdom is forsaken

[CHORUS] My story is a sad one
I could not leave this place
The others are all long gone
I've existed in this realm,
this forsaken kingdom
with beauty and love gone
Still I must call it my home
Secrets of unkind destiny
The echoes in these halls
The echoes in these halls
still roam on and on
On and on

I hold the past within my heart
The reasons it went wrong
Find all your answers for yourself
I am spellbound to these halls
Protector of these walls
Though they're only empty shells

I am the last, keeper of the past
Holder of the ancient knowledge
And I have been left back until time is no more
I guard the ruins once fair as sunrise
Now this kingdom is forsaken
[CHORUS]

Still I must call it my home
Secrets of unkind destiny
The echoes in these halls
The echoes in these halls
still roam on and on
On and on

Welcome into my empty mind
to the ruins of old times
See what once was but is no more
3. Melancholy Beast (6:11)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

Skin of thorns, a breath of fire
No life comes near it, none feels its desire
A longing for something to ease the loneliness
In these deep enchanted woods, it feeds on emptiness

Who hears you? Who sees you?
Only those who you infect with fear
No equals, a darker part of light
Your only legacy was the pleasant shades of night

[CHORUS] And now it's been too long
Your cry of pain to someone
You are the melancholy beast of the woods
Never have you felt at home
in the silent dark of your throne
You are the melancholy beast of the woods

Who hears my cry? Who looks beneath?

Who hears your cry? Who looks beneath?
A twin born creature or a fellow soul
Behold your queen, one of your kind
Not of looks, but of what's kept inside

Who hears you? Who sees you?
Only those who you infect with fear
Across the ages you've waited patiently
Oh, and now she's here, a light so clear
[CHORUS]

And the world held its breath in enchantment
And the beauty and the beast within united
And the light and the dark were as one
And a new way of understanding was born
4. The Journey (5:47)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

I feel its hands on me
Constantly pulling me on and on
It haunts me when I sleep
A burning longing dream, more and more

[PRE-CHORUS] War of the mind
How can I deny
questions of faith or a question of time?
There it is clearly written here for me

[CHORUS] Days go by, still I try
to realize the journey haunting me a night
(x2)

The path lies open wide
It's up to me to glide through the maze
I have the will to see
My turn to break free glorious
[PRE-CHORUS]
[CHORUS x2]

And at the journey’s end,
then I will surely stand
more victorious than I've ever been

[CHORUS x2]
5. Until We Fade Away (4:36)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

Watch us now, years went by like days
I see your face, there's love and no regret
But the lines have changed
You're not the girl I once met
We're older and stronger
I don't question this any longer
And although sometimes it's hard,
we won't drift apart

Now I'm falling through mazes of memories
From the beginning until now, we got this far somehow
(x2)

Where do we go when we grow old?
I do not know, but I've been told
it's easier if you’re not alone
You won't have to go through life on you own

[CHORUS x3] 'Cause I'll stay until we fade away
Time passing by, some things stay the same
I can still remember things that I once said
I'll be there when you cry out my name

'Cause I'll stay until we fade away
I'll be there when you cry out my name
6. Legend (7:11)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

Ice covers the land
where it's never been before
Much living petrified at night
and gone is all light

One girl - One boy
A mistake that gives the Dark Lord joy
Her beauty - her goodness
The Unicorns came to her chest
Enchanted they both are
Eyes are fixed on one another
Shadows creep up behind
Claim the magic horn of the Unicorn
The Unicorn - The Unicorn
The night has been reborn of the Unicorn
The Unicorn - The Unicorn
The legend has begun

The girl was weeping for sins
Her pain grows from deep within
Running away in agony
She could not bear to see

Someone waits for her to move
The darkest lord, he wants her too
He must own her special light
to sweeten his darkest nights
This one boy consumed by love
must find his way to the Dark Lord’s realm
Fighting through to find his love
and claim the magic horn of the Unicorn
The Unicorn - The Unicorn
The night has been reborn of the Unicorn
The Unicorn - The Unicorn
The legend has begun (x3)

Through the darkness and despairs, love carries him
forward on swift wings through mazes in front of him
Guided by spirits that remain beside him
He must heal his world again
Save his princess from the shadows taken hold of her
The evil growing wants to rule the world with iron fists
Fighting for a kiss from her sweet lips, he forges on
He brought back the light, setting things right,
and so the legend says

Through the darkness and despairs, love carries him
forward on swift wings through mazes in front of him
Guided by spirits that remain beside him
He must heal the world again
Save his princess from the shadows taken hold of her
The evil growing wants to rule the world with iron fists
Fighting for a kiss from her sweet lips, he forges on
He brought back the light, setting things right,
and so the legend says
7. Mighty Abyss (8:04)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

Endless ocean, oh mighty deep
A billion years old, and you never ever sleep
Nightmare creatures and playful friends
God's creations or nature’s circumstance
Look into the mirror of blue, and you'll see

[CHORUS] The almighty abyss
I often stare into
The almighty abyss
Always looking back at you

Stop to listen, and you will hear
The songs of centuries, they're filling your ears
Shadows pass by just like a dream
Under the surface they're watching through the years
Look into the mirror of blue, and you'll see
[CHORUS x2]

See - Hear
You will know - You will feel

[CHORUS x2]
8. The Nature of Triumph (0:50)
Instrumental
9. Power of Imagination (6:29)
Words & music by M. Kammeyer

Look into my eyes
They're the windows of my mind
A dreamspace filled with power
growing stronger by the hour
A realm of thoughts and dreams with no end
A stairway to a galaxy

[CHORUS] A galaxy of images, sounds and words
It's liquid metal flowing through my veins
Power of imagination has put a spell on me
Reality’s chains won't set me free

A thought can move mountains
An idea can make the day
Fantasy is a firestorm
that guides me on my way
A realm of thought and dreams with no end
A stairway to a galaxy
[CHORUS]

And at the end of the day
when there are no more words to say,
a new story emerges in my mind

Oh, at the end of the day
when there’s no more words to say,
a new story grows
Emerges in my mind (x3)
