Imaginations From The Other Side

Where are these silent faces
I took them all
they all went away
now you’re alone
to turn out every light so deep in me
hold on, to late

Will I ever see them back again
or did they all die by my hand

or where they killed
by the old evil ghost
who had taken
the ocean
of all my dreams
which were worth to keep
deep inside my heart
I wish I
could get them back

from the everflow
before they’ll fade away

Ref.:
Imaginations from the other side
far out of nowhere
it got back to my mind
Imaginations from the other side
far out of nowhere

it got back to my mind
out of the dark
back to the light
then I’ll break down
the walls around my heart
Imaginations from the other side

Where’s the ocean’s daughter
was Peter Pan in Mordor

no one’s there to keep alive
all these fairy tales
may I return to Oz
will I meet the “Tin Man”
“Coward Lion” where are you
without brain the scarecrow’s lost
in the middle of the lake
stranded in the real world
left in a world

no place for daydreams
serious life
I fall into
I fall into a dark hole
and I can’t come out

do you know if Merlin did exist
or Frodo wore the ring
did Corum kill the gods

or where’s the wonderland
which young Alice had seen
or was it just a dream
I knew the answers
now they’re lost for me

Ref.

(Solo)

I hope there is a way back
with my talisman
so I look into myself
to the days when I was just a child
come follow me to wonderland
and see the tale that never ends
don’t fear the lion nor the witch
I can’t come back
I’m lost but still I know

there is another world

Ref.

I’m Alive

I run through the dark fields
of the plains
reach level 99

the pain cuts deep down
through my vain
how will I break the ice
welcome to my reality
dream forever
sunlight instead of neon light
how will it be
welcome to my grave
and feel the dream is over

nothing can stop me
I reach out for the top

Bridge:
Caught in an old cage
the system failed
built up on lies
now I see that I’m alone
in asylum’s cage

I’m left alone

Ref.:
I’m alive my friend
I can feel the shadows everywhere
I’m alive
I left the shadows
far behind me
another one is waiting in the dark

They say the system keeps
the last chance to survive
caught in this labyrinth
of walls and lots of lies
then I began to understand
there’s more above than ice
to reach the top
I crept deep down

the answers given in the past
a sensless worth
in useless brains
magic runes
without a meaning
besides the dark
there should be nothing left

Bridge

Ref.

(Solo)

Outside they say death is waiting
but it creeps down through the shaft
finds pleasure in our helpless fear
fills empty rooms
with morbid thought

they’ve locked the door
and hold the key
sitting beside you
when silent screams
changing my mind and dreams
oh, it’s never ending

Bridge

Ref.

I’M ALIVE!!!

A Past And Future Secret

Oh, I haven’t been here for a while
in blindness and decay
the circle’s been closed, now

My song of the end
I’ve seen it all

Listen crowd
I’ll tell you everything
though I have to say
I don’t know much
talking about a past
and future secret

most called him once
and future king
far back in the past
I saw his ending
long before it started
I knew his name
he’s the one who took the sword
out of the stone
it’s how that ancient tale began

I hear it in the cold winds

My song of the end
I had seen it in my dreams
my song of the end
I can’t stop the darkening clouds

I feel cold
when I cry out for the bark
take him back to Avalon

dwell on for a new age
so long sleep well my friend
take him back to Avalon
I will wait and guard
the future king’s crown

My song of the end
it was nice but now it’s gone
my song of the end

it was fixed the whole time
my song of the end
I saw it all

The Script For My Requiem

Hallowed be the fatherland
god he knows

how long I’d been away
from here I did start for a search so
full of decease
I still hear my cryouts
from the old cellar’s inside

Born in the days of medieval
my inner voice
is alway asking why

I came from nowhere
without a task, without a name
no fear of evil
fate, so god please lead me through
forgotten realms
mysterious dreams
in sunless rooms I’d sworn
I’ll finish what I started, once

I’ll find my holy grail
in the holy land

Ref.:
Returning of the miracles
it’s my own requiem
the jester’s tears
they are inside me
agony’s the script for my requiem

Returning of the miracles
it’s my own requiem
is the script already written
jester’s tears I cry
yes, I cry

I went out of my mind
in desert lands
insanity’s pawn

out of control
much too long I’ve been isolated
from my thoughts
enclosed by the leader’s spell
bewildered to marc
as a glory knight
and I tried

Still I hear the scream of thousands:

“Crucify, crucify
Take it all
our gold, our home, our life,
but we didn’t kill your Christ!!
Reach out for your holy grail
enslave us and make us
your god’s sacrifice!!”

Ref.

(Solo)

Still I’m confused
if I was dreaming
too late I realized
I’d been another fool
I pay the price

Returning of the miracles

it’s my own requiem
the jester’s tears
they are inside me
agony’s the script for my requiem
Returning of the miracles
it’s my own requiem
is the script already written
jester’s tears I cry

Mordred’s Song

I’ve lost my battle before it starts
my first breath wasn’t done
my spirit’s sunken deep
into the ground
why am I alone
I can hear my heartbeat

silence’s all around

See hat will rise
so don’t come closer
fear your child
born with a king’s heart
but fate fooled me
and changed my cards
noone asked if I want it

if I like it

Ref.:
Pain inside is rising
I am the fallen one
a figure in an old game
no Joker’s on my side
I plunged into misery
I’ll turn off the light

and murder the dawn
turn off the light
and murder the dawn

Nothing else,
but laughter is around me
forevermore
noone can heal me
nothing can save me

noone can heal me
I’ve gone beyond the truth
it’s just another lie
wash away the blood on my hands
my father’s blood
in agony we’re unified

I never wanted to be
what they told me to be

fulfill my fate then I’ll be free
god knows how long
I tried to change fate

(Solo)

Ref.

(Solo)

I plunged into misery

I’ll turn off the light
and murder the dawn
turn off the light
and murder the dawn

Born In A Mourning Hall

In fact it was close to a real fallout

everything’s under control
the speaker said with a serious smile
behind his mask
he knew the truth
I’ll bring a new age of better ways
the TV preacher said
just pay today
pay today

World’s dressed in black
on earth’s judgement day
and I?
I know it can’t go on
forbidden signs increase
I’m sitting still at home
and watching

Ref.:

Born in a mourning hall
pale clouds feared the unborn child
then it grew up with growing plans
of suicide
born in a mourning hall
shadows left the fear inside
that Peter Pan will never reach
the other side

It’s frightening
exciting to sit at home
and watch the burning fields
get
hypnotized by the TV snake

Obey and work hard
and feel no anger
just sympathy for the higher class

there’s no chance in changing things
cause I am

Ref.:
born in a mourning hall
silent cries ran out
when the cradle breaks
broken dreams were unheared on
the other side

born in a mourning hall
shadows left the fear
in the new born child
that Peter Pan will never reach
the other side

(Solo)

And I’m a part of the machine
a puppet on the strings

a rebel, once
now I’m an old man

Oh, I know this can’t go on
but the ghost called fear inside
lames my tongue, my nerves, my mind
eternal fall down
someone cut the strings off
I can’t move

to get back courage
I’ve to face the truth
but not today
goodbye

Ref.:
Born in a mourning hall
caught inside a web called life
the only way to get out soon

is suicide
born in a mourning hall
pale souls built a frozen world
infected brains
will never reach the other side
the other side

Bright Eyes

Fool just another
fool just another

I’ve been waiting
for signs of god

create- enslaved- behaved-
everything is out of control

Leave me alone
isolation bears hope
there’s something else waiting
a promised destiny
freezing me
I feel restless and low
these days full of sadness
had joyfully changed

into fear

My freakshow will start tonight
don’t miss the right time

Ref.:
Bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
no Merlin is by my side

everything is out of control
everything is out of control
in my future plans
everything is out of control
noone’s left to hurt
everything is out of control
sorrow’s gone away

Broken memories

walking upstairs
step by step
I see the whole world burning
the poet dies in Neverland
how it burns

Hey, mother stubborn
I really hate you
if you say yes I will say no

ashes to ashes
but dust won’t be dust
if you go there
I will go back

Ref.:
Bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
betrayed by sunrise

bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
no Merlin is by my side

Hey, father stubborn
you’re ying
and I’m young
I feel alone
who really cares

Born into ashes
to lose all the games
with a smiling face

Ref.:
Bright eyes
blinded by fear of life
and dark dragons rise
bright eyes

blinded by fear of life
no Merlin is by my side

So I sit still in my room, today
winter’s here
in summer’s season
shall I say
I was wrong
if I’m right

farewell to my last hope

Another Holy War

I am god
the only one
I will bring back
freedom to your heart

you won’t believe
that blind can see
noone else before me ever knew
the way to paradise
for another bloody crime
I shall return

I am your light on through the night

Ref.:

Why am I born
will I fail to rise again
another crucifixion for
another holy war
can’t stop what’s going on
(repeat)

Sooner or later you must understand
my words bring freedom

and rescue for man
what else,
to call me your Messiah
oh, I wish there could be another way
cross and nails are already prepared
my sell out
waits till I’m crucified
I will die before my vision ends

Ref.

(Solo)

Wait for the dawn
to take me away
what will be if I fail
another golden calve
never, never ending
pain and agony

hit me, nail me make me god

Ref.

And The Story Ends

And the story ends
insanity said coldly
still waiting for the chance

so out of nowhere it will rise
oh, and another journey starts
by the call of the moon
was it really me
I saw in the mirror screaming
I swallowed hate and lies
through a thousand cries
someone’s sucking out my energy

Bridge:
What can I do
on this road to nowhere
Heart of dragon lies
at the edge of time

Ref.:
And the story ends
insanity said coldy

still waiting for the chance
so out of nowhere it will rise
oh, and another journey starts
into insanity’s claws

Come with me and join me
a new life’s waiting for you
jump through the mirror
leave fear behind

no matter where I tried
the candle light seemed
lost forever
before my vision ends
-cathedral
-falling tears

We’re not alone

there’s someone else, too
from the mirror’s other side
reflecting the cruel part of your soul
it’s time for your choice

Bridge

Ref.:
And the story ends
insanity said coldy

still waiting for the chance
so out of nowhere it will rise
oh, and another journey starts
by the call of the moon

(Solo)

Heart of dragon lies

Bridge

Ref.(1st)

I’m not a king
I’m just a bard
how can I trust
if there’s good and bad
the wounds of life
they will remain
at least I found a friend
