The Phantom of the Opera

I've been looking so long for you now you won't get away from my grasp.
You've been living so long in hiding, In hiding behind that false mask.
And you know and I know that you ain't got long now to last.
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past.

Youre standing in the wings, There you wait for the curtain to fall.
Knowing the terror and holding
You have on us all.
Yeah, I know that you're gonna scratch me, maim me and maul.
You know, I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call.

Keep your distance, Walk away, Don't take his bait.
Don't you stray, Don't fade away.
Watch your step, He's out to get you
Come what may.
Don't you stray, From the narrow way.

I'm running and hiding in my dreams, You're always there.
You're the phantom of the opera, You're the devil, You're just out to scare.
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air.
Haunt me, You taunt me, You torture me back at your lair.

 

The Pilgrim

The keys to death and hell
The ailing kingdom doomed to fail
The bonds of sin and heart will break
The pilgrim's course will take

Quelling the devil's might
And ready for eternal fight
Aching limbs and fainting soul
Holy battles take their toll

Liberty and hope divine
Changing the water into wine
So to you we bid farewell
Kingdom of heaven to hell

Spirit holy life eternal
Raise me up take me home
Pilgrim sunrise pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

To courage find and gracious will
Deliver good from ill
Clean the water clean our guilt
With us do what you will

Then will my judge appear
Bear no false angel that I hear
For only then I will confess
To my eternal hell

Now give us our holy sign
Changing our water into wine
So to you we bid farewell
Kingdom of heaven to hell

Spirit holy life eternal
Raise me up take me home
Pilgrim sunrise pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

Now give us our holy sign
Changing our water into wine
So to you we bid farewell
Kingdom of heaven to hell

Spirit holy life eternal
Raise me up take me home
Pilgrim sunrise pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

Spirit holy life eternal
Raise me up take me home
Pilgrim sunrise pagan sunset
Onward journey begun

 

The Prisoner

I'm on the run, I kill to eat.
I'm starving now, I'm feeling dead on my feet.
Going all the way, I'm nature's beast.
Do what I want, I'll do as I please.

Run! Fight! To breathe! It's tough!
Now you see me (haha!) Now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

Not a prisoner I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care, where the past was,
I know where I'm going...Out!

If you kill me, it's self-defense,
If I kill you, then I call it vengeance.
Spit in your eye, I will defy,
You'll be afraid when I call out your name.

Run! Fight! To breathe! It's gonna be tough!
Now you see me, and now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care, where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

I'm not a number, I'm a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You'd better scratch me from your black book,
'Cause I'll run rings around you.

[Solo]

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

I'm not a number, I'm a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You'd better scratch me from your black book,
'Cause I'll run rings around you.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

 

The Prophecy

Now that I know that the right time has come
My prediction will surely be true
The impending disaster it looms
And the whole of the village is doomed
Why won't you listen to me
Is it so hard to understand
That I am the real seventh son
Your life or death on me depends

Suffering and pain impending disaster
Souls crying the devil's laughter
Heard the cry of the seven whistlers
Lucifer smiles looks on and waits

I'll take your life in my hands
Your fate your fortune's in my visions
Heed what I say and you'll see
What will be
Please listen to me

Now that they see the disaster is done
Now they put all the blame unto me
They feel I brought on a curse
Don't they know that the torment
It stays with me knowing that I walk alone
Through the eyes of the future I see
They don't even know what fear is
Don't they know I'm the one who is cursed

Purgatory beckons souls lost forever
Life after death or heaven hereafter
Heard the call of the seven whistlers again
Now Lucifer laughs hell awaits

I had their lives in my hands
Their fate their fortunes in my visions
No one believed in my true prophecy
And now it's too late

 

The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg

Let me tell you about my life
Let me tell you about my dreams
Let me tell you about the things that happen
Always real to me

Let me tell you of my hope
Of my need to reach the sky
Let me take you on an awkward journey
Let me tell you why

Let me tell you why

Why should these curses be laid upon me
I won't be forgiven 'til I can break free
What did I do to deserve all this guilt
Pay for my sins with the sale of my soul
Demons are trapped all inside of my head
My hopes are gone reach for heaven from hell

My sins are many, my guilt is too heavy
The pressure of knowing, of hiding what I know
I'm able to see things, things I don't want to see
The lives of a thousand souls weigh heavy down on me

I know they're crying for help reaching out
The burden of them will take me down as well
The sin of a thousand souls not died in vain
Reincarnate still in me live again

Someone to save me
Something to save me from myself
To bring salvation
To exorcise this hell

Someone to save me
Something to save me from myself
To bring salvation
To exorcise this hell

Someone to save me
Something to save me from my hell
A destination
Away from this nightmare

Someone to save me
Something to save me from myself
To bring salvation
To exorcise this hell

 

The Talisman

When I stand and look about the port
And contemplate my life
Will I ever see my countrymen again?

As the captain calls us on the deck,
I take my things and walk
To the harbour-side I glance back one more time

Fleeing our nation, our problems we leave behind
Ships by the tenfold sail out on the tide
We are pleased to be out and embracing the open sea
Free from our troubles and more free from thee

Inheritors unfulfilled reason behind us
We flee from what is not, what is, will be
We flee the earth and face our harsh reality
Will death be low mist that hangs on the sea?

We run from evil tongues; rash judgments; selfish men
Never to be seen on these shores again
As we sail into oceansize and lose sight of land
A face of contentment around in the air

We're off now to seek all our fortunes
To the land
Of our dreams...

Riding the waves and the storm is upon us
The winds lash the sails but the ropes keep them tight
Off in the distance a dark cloud approaching
None could imagine what there was to come
No there's no one going back
No there's not a second chance
As we strap on to the side
We pray to God that we won't die!

As we ride the rough seas
As we soak from the ocean waves
I just hope for all our lives
And pray that I survive

Four ships are lost in the stormy conditions
The spirits of the sunken crews; their phantoms follow us

Spirits sails, they drive us on through the all consuming waves
Cold Morality no weapon against these ever raging seas
Four leagues and ten and we hit storms again
We just can't get away from the eye of the storm

The birds outsoar the raging storm, but we cannot escape it
Abandoned earth that we now crave is many leagues from safe
Holding on for our dear lives, and we're praying once again
Rotten luck, or just Jonahed, the Talisman is in my hand

Limbs fatigued, trembling with cold; blinded from the sea spray salt
Clasping anything we can hold, Heaven's rain upon us falls
Twenty days without a meal, and ten without fresh water still
Those that didn't die in storms, the scurvy rest did slaughter

Westward the tide
Westward we sail on
Westward the tide
Sail by the talisman

We approach the other side of the ocean with the tide
In our favor just for once; welcome greeting our new land
The elation in our hearts, the excitement in our veins
As we sail towards the coastline of our golden promised land

Weary limbs fatigued away, I have no life left in me
No more strength and nothing left to give, must find the will to live.
Never thought that we could make it, truly sight of shores divine
The sickness I am dying from; never wanted it to end this way...

Westward the tide
Westward we sail on
Westward the tide
Sail by the talisman

Westward the tide
Westward we sail on
Westward the tide
Sail by the talisman

 

The Thin Line Between Love And Hate

When a person turns to wrong
Is it a want to be, belong?
Part of things at any cost
At what price a life is lost

At what point do we begin
Fighter spirit a will to win
But what makes a man decide
Take the wrong or righteous road

There's a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There's a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

We all like to put the blame
On society these things
But what kind of good or bad
A new generation brings

Sometimes takes just more than that
To survive be good at heart
There is evil in some of us
No matter what will never change

I will hope
My soul will fly
So I will live forever
Heart will die
My soul will fly
And I will live forever

Just a few small tears between someone happy and one sad
Just a thin line drawn between being a genius or insane

At what age begin to learn of which way out we will turn
There's a long and winding road and the trail is there to burn

There's a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There's a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

I will hope
My soul will fly
So I will live forever
Heart will die
My soul will fly
And I will live forever

I will hope
My soul will fly
So I will live forever
Heart will die
My soul will fly
And I will live forever

The thin line between love and hate

The thin line between love and hate

 

The Trooper

You take my life but I'll take yours too
You fire your musket but I run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.

The bugle sounds - the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.

O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhh!
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhh!

The horse he sweats with fear - we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall.

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day.

O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhh!
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhh!

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below.

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan.

O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhh!
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhh!

 

The Unbeliever

When you start to take a look within
Do you feel at ease with what you see
Do you think you can have peace of mind
And have self-belief or be satisfied

Do you think you even like yourself
Or really think you could be someone else
Is there something that you'd rather be
Never thought you'd be, had the chance to see

All my life I've run away
All my life I've tried to hide away

Fell the paranoia creeping in
Like a cancer eating at the skin
Do you feel you've lost your self esteem
And your self respect, what can you expect

All my life... I've run astray
Let my faith... slip away
All my life... I've run astray
Allowed my faith... to drift away

Are you scared to look inside your mind
Are you worried just at what you'll find
Do you really want to face the truth
Does it matter now, what have you got to loose

Try to release the anger from within
Forgive yourself a few immortal sins
Do you really care what people think
Are you strong enough to release the guilt

 

The Wicker Man

Hand of fate is moving and the finger points to you
He knocks you to your feet and so what are you going to do
Your tongue has frozen now you've got something to say
The piper at the gates of dawn is calling you his way

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the Sun a newborn in the light
Say goodbye to gravity and say goodbye to death
Hello to eternity and live for every breath

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

The ferryman wants his money you ain't going to give it back
He can push his own boat as you set up off the track
Nothing you can contemplate will ever be the same
Every second is a new spark, sets the universe aflame

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the Sun a newborn in the light
Brothers and their fathers joining hands and make a chain
The shadow of the Wicker Man is rising up again

Your time will come, your time will come
