In Our Hands 05:15
The Spark of Deity ignites in our hands Down in the land of sighs this superficial life keeps going on will it ever end (will it ever end)? My will, my testament is to destroy the land let terror reign spoke the moribund (when his day had come) But there’s a legend ablaze the sky will descend and fire will rain So all who wear a soulless face will be released from the haze It’s five strokes of fate of pain and loss and misery That’s the number of the stones that I will break I will bring justice to the world once and for all you all go with me when I die I spent my life protecting you you just brought me agony no, I can’t take it anymore a nation’s sought to spoil my life why now you all will die The Spark of Deity ignites in our hands it’s burning from within to brighten up the land defeat the twilight so that day and night revieve can you feel the sunrise in your heart? But as they carry out the task it’s the keeper’s son who can embrace the Spark His will is strong and he is trying to take his dead father’s place Now it’s up to him Caught up in a nightmare his past is falling in oblivion oh, it’s drowning in the fog So, it’s a race against the time restore the light divine The Spark of Deity ignites in our hands… (I don’t regret to be the slayer of my kind) This is the last chance we face the razor’s edge now Despite all hopelessness the bearer will not slow down reverse the horror of the king’s revenge Still he’s marching on and on to reignite the flames Stumbling through a field of ghosts until the stones bring day and night again There’s no shelter, no encouragement it’s a burden and he’s out there all alone There’s no shelter there is no choice but going on or all the world will end (that’s my testament) But there’s a legend ablaze the sky will descend and fire will rain So all who wear a soulless face restart the human race The Spark of Deity ignites in our hands…

I don’t feel sorrow any longer in fact I cannot feel the slightest thing but I bring destruction, I bring murder there’s purest evil at the core it will make you crawl Don’t you be terrified there’s shelter someplace that we left behind Your race is what you call mankind they are insane and weak so they will die My race is what we call one mind we are the strong and we strive In my dreams I still hear their cries patiently they stare with empty eyes Don’t come close, we are untouchable but can we survive another morrow and will the phoners fall? Read me like a book open wide and tear a page use me like a tool I guess we are well understood life will never be the same adherence to the rule There is music at your nightly charge but your magic’s gone and we blow you apart In my dreams I still hear their cries… All is lost if I never embrace him again lead him out of the darkness Where are you now? Just wait and see that I did everything to set you free Oh, can you hear me now, my son? Believe me there will be a way to end it all In my dreams I still hear their cries…

I have a special gift for you a life of power, owned by few For the good side you will strive but in the end you’ll fight the light Crawling through your veins there is Jedi blood it’s your skill to see the future like one sees the past Reckless and self-assured there is so much you must learn Won’t you come and take the course apprentice of the Force? Inside the circle, yet all alone only grief as you leave your mother behind Inside the circle, you’re on your own bound to the prophecy And as the slave becomes the padawan a black cloud of nightmares keeps torturing his heart I swear I will not fail rage to those who cross my way and so he screamed out at the stars Vengeance is mine Inside the circle, yet all alone only grief as a friend and father has died Inside the circle, you’re on your own bound to the prophecy After all, I face the fact that everyone I love is dead save you, my queen, my love, my bride but through the mist I feel her pain of giving birth and I cannot find a way it’s out of sight Where is the Force to save her life? Why does the council show you no trust? Cursed be their ignorance and I can only pray you’ll find your way Give in to your anger it makes you wise Only through me she will survive Come now, Vader, walk with me Inside the circle, yet all alone now she’s gone and he’s slowly drifting away Inside the circle, you’re on your own bound to the prophecy Inside the circle, yet all alone all is lost and he’s slowly drifting away Inside the circle, you’re on your own bound to the prophecy

In this maze of green and white in a forest dark and wild In have been before or will I be? I lost my sense of timeThree years I roamed in hell alone I felt like dying but I can’t Suddenly there is a distant voice from outside so close the book again and risk a flash of light I have to race the seas to regain my honor to be worthy of loving you, my bride I wonder is there a place left on earth or is it gone since I’ve turned the key? Only your picture will keep me sane I can see the prints of your feet on the beach but at every spot they are leading away from me and I fear that with a splashing wave they are drawn back to the sea I have to race the seas… And then the tide will rise again but you’re out of sight So for a while I’ll rest here by the shore until my future will recurNow you are stuck under the same old star and there is no way out, believe me I have tried them all So sit down, let’s have that whiskey without jar it seems like yesterday that I’ve seen your final fate There’s a trap somewhere around better watch your step Don’t be brave just let her down You will drown and when the lightning strikes you and you die my precognitions fade and I see you in another life I have to race the seas… And then the tide will rise again…

I don’t want to hear your stupid song about the fisherman who sailed towards his ruin for the one he loved Cut that crap! Welcome to the real world of sweat and blood and beer Keep living in your shiny fairytale I don’t want to hear your fucking song about the sailor’s wife who drowned herself in grief as well as in the ocean In your stories we are free endless skies above an endless spree But if you ever came with me I’d show you freedom at the raging sea We are the sons of the darkness no, we don’t care for deliverance there’s no Fiddler’s Green we have ransacked and murdered and raped in between And I tell you now there is nothing more than a cold and lonesome grave offshore We shall be fighting side by side and we will never hide If you cross one of us we strike back with the whole damn crew Our ships may sink right to the ground but we will never drown we will float down below and stab you in the back, my friend I don’t wear no feathered hat I have both my eyes but no wooden leg the saber is not mine, but I won’t regret to punch you in the face with my bare fist instead We are the sons of the darkness… Navigate me with the light of the stars don’t you let me fall apart Hoist the sails they’re calling for me Come hell or high water the wind and the sea Whatever you may think of me what made me be this way the truth is it’s a whole lifetime of solitude and pain I lost my home, I lost my love in sorrow I did roam well, actually my wife’s a whore she cursed me out of town We are the sons of darkness and we won’t turn away We’re sailing miles and miles to prey on your silver and your life We are the sons of the darkness…

Homecoming 05:20
Standing on a sunlit deck his quest is done, his vow fulfilled Now there is nothing left to trouble his mind still he is shaking he’s getting back to where his life once was awakened grief and doubt will dissolve in the air and now I see them running down the peer towards their father for he shall never leave his loved ones ever after Hear me now, I will be there eleven years from now, I swear I’m heading home all these year’s I’ve been wrong I reached for the stars losing sight of the sun but now that the final journey’s almost done my sorrows are washed away and drowned in the bliss of my homecoming Wearing the charm from his true love (you will never be alone) bonded they are by the silver moon that shines among the stars Set the course leave yearning far behind us may God have taken care of those I left behind Oh Lord, please guide me to find them alive I’d give me soul, make any sacrifice Hear me now… I’m heading home… He is surely hasting time he ain’t wasting speaks the mother to comfort her child who dreams beyond horizon far Hear me now… I’m heading home…

Stories tell of magic realms that are buried underground Once upon a time there was a girl wearing the crown Although she lived in bliss and love there was a longing for the earth above for daylight and stars And so she climbed up high to pass the secret gate Blinded by sunlight her memories fade and noone has ever since seen her again they say her spirit survived This is the story of Moana’s return Where am I now? Why did you lead me here? Those rotten walls they scare me, they make me feel that I’ve been here for a long, long time but who is the guard of this hidden shrine? I am the pan, your servant, your friend I am as old as the trees and the wind and I know you will remember your name then I shall take you afar So carry me down This is the story of Moana’s return (to) where faries still live and the moon never dies Where thrones in golden light are waiting This is the tale of her rise and her fall In the shelter of comforting night you shall be questioned till your spirit revives and I’ll be there to guide you through What are you waiting for, girl? Just get it done One: do recover the key from the toad Two: get the deggar, but don’t touch the fruit And three: spill the blood of a poor little boy So carry me down This is the story of Moana’s return… The distance is fading the breathing gets low (and she falls) Nobody else in this place but her and the faun This is the story of Moana’s return (to) where faries still live and the moon never dies Where thrones in golden light are waiting This is the tale remember the tale this is the tale of her rise and her fall

Wake up and follow me your rise is the start of my mastery unshaped, a scorn of man four thousand soldiers are at my command Right from the shadow comes the flaming eyes their faces lifeless and vacant they stand These are the warriors of an ancient time made of stone and clay they will smash down the land So they march till the end of all time noone can ever stop them by steel or fire you disbelievers, bow to me I’m forcing the town to its knees and claim what has always been mine The earth is shaking forsaken lands we will leave as we walk to the scene They were mistaken for every selfpleasing laugh they’ll be torn apart I have the power for I wear the lordship’s ring These eyes, the tyrant’s eyes a crucial part of his fake regime I have the power for I wear the lordship’s sword My plan, a perfect plan not yet, but soon the throne is mine So they march till the end of all time… And they scream, and they cry for all their houses are stamped to dust those woods grow nevermore But if they beg, if they pray I shall be mercyful and spare their lives ’cause I’m a noble man

Once Again 05:22
So now the path is clear he will set out for the borders His gaze is on the Spark for the world is on his shoulders Now it’s your turn, my son to keep the flame from dying down again I taught you all I know you’re the bearer of all hope How can he find his way? Strenght is there but will it stay? Where are the ancient stones? In silence he carries on Once again it is in our hands behold the light, the Spark of Deity We were sent all your hopes to defend throughout the nation we will set you free And so he’s moving on to carry out the order Still trying desperately to keep hold of his memory Raise your head, mourning’s done there’s still flicker in the sun but noone will lead you from now on you’re alone How can he find his way… Once again it is in our hands… Forever lost are the tales of yore suddenly, they’ll be no more Songs of sadness, songs of of joy they will trail of in the void Drawings of a world so fine they will grey out over time All we know is what we are we can only trust you Once again it is in our hands…
