"Repeat"- says the liar "Repeat a thousandfold" A lie into the truth becomes Beneath the power always lie the weak For whom the lie becomes real Tales of equality for the cattle The rule is to remain asleep, Not knowing who's who Never dream out of tune Playground of darkness Children of deceit Pray and then have your meal Becoming - walls falling down Falling down to the ground Becoming - on goes the storm Sweeping who dares the throne On goes the storm
We'll live, we'll bleed We'll grow like a raging fire… Or we will be ruled by liars Their hell awaits, an age of hate is coming You´ll see our peace is fading away We need to be one when the enemy's close Then you'll see the enemy fall We need to be one when the enemy's close Hear my calling Today they killed to give our sons a lesson We'll teach to keep fear from our way With a song that’s keeping us together That we’ll shelter for long Through these times our hardest ever Fate’s giving us the choice
Far beyond the hills Where the wind's no leaf to stir Stillness cracked all hope Hunted down like doe Saw the murk uncharted dare Our very pledge to endure Had no choice, for I knew your wounds... Unarmed I charged at the herd of wolves When fate called, it found me fierce Fate called - Million beings beheld me soar high They pierce like white pikes the night Fate calls for me! Near the barley fields Where I'd play at dusk as child Where our ways were sown... Followed you for hours To your death on humid ground Star-like boding in yellow "For your kin", taught the firefly I dwell in them, I burn in the sky When fate called, it found me fierce Fate called - Million beings beheld me soar high They pierce like white pikes the night Fate calls for me!
All that I was, All that I've lived, Everything that I can remember Lies in the past and will die in my mind. Nobody can change what I've done Nobody can rewrite my story There's no regret that can rebuild what is lost And I know that old good days will never come Back again. They're gone with the river, Never will return; gone with the river When all is gone with the river. There's nothing more to do except to get up, Carry on, and don't look behind. Lessons are learnt only with pain, But you must not feel guilty, Soon you will know that every wound is a chance. Yesterday's gone, all our deeds lie in the memories of people And when it dies (at the end) it will be lost, And I know that old good days will never come back again.
Spare me - from the lies I was always driven to believe Spare me - they'd surround me in the darkness For my time is coming to the end… And I've no rest Had I felt the soothing wind before Seen the ageing trees climb up forever But you'll hear my name echo through the days Then you will know I ran away from the storm Calmly and in peace Like an infant walking to the gates Take me - such heart never felt hatred For to die in peace is to return to Mother Earth
Guard your patch, crave their ground, The lines I traced are before your eyes... To tempt you, to divide you To shake the rust from the old art. Then truce came and I laughed hard At words that won't soothe your angry mind Your fate is to be drawn in... My game board's set and awaiting. Mutual curse, war cry, both heralds slain I can't help but taste this day of chaos. Rage on, rage on, That the wicked wheel needs turning... Rage on, rage on,   State you greatness Rage on, rage on,   That you think history will enshrine. One whole page for you. This lad will die so lonely When greed turns man to dust so soon His name won't be remembered Carved on a stone that's to erode. Your great deeds make fine seeds They lie beneath and are all alike To please me, to release me, The wheel prepares for a new turn. Your guts and little glory Are spread like compost in your last breath You glimpsed me, when you realized That no one's sorry for your death... But I did give meaning to your days Then you might just thank me for such service.  
I saw a hawk willing to fly under blackened skies Holding against a storm that came and's not turning back I heard a cry fading out in the thickest numbness Warning all of us never to be swallowed up by the void… Born in the dark age - With their fallen souls, fallen souls It’s in the dark age...that we drift on our own Will we ever spread our wings of gold over the landscape... And restore what is lost. Loners in packs, filling the streets, see through lifeless eyes Aching for coins, dullness resets with each passing sun... Stumbling their way over bodies dead or dying... Screwed to a routine that is able to squeeze the most of our souls
Reach down to the Earth We will know the meaning of power If god is dead let's take the world From now on destiny is ours Steel and disease to the ones Raging against all we stand for I’ll make us all return Back to the heathen shores Proudly on raven wings We will overthrow What always made us weak Loud, shouting aloud, we're ready to fight Breaking the bounds of the nations Loud, shouting aloud, We're shaking the ground For a new revelation Reach back to the Earth For all that is scarring in me
Real and grim 'til the end of your days Looking from within, you're going to find me Counting sins with an eye stinging in like an arrow Feed on the guilt of those who believe Hear the rhyme, the everlasting lie Dare to defy it...everlasting lie Running blind to the saviour of souls They were told about... But they don't find him In the eyes and the face Of a cold lifeless idol
You brought forth an army of clowns Fit for the masses daft It seems I'm always on the wrong side. Three or four words that you repeat If you ask me that's rather bleak In this game I play the traitor Wave the flag, take control. Gobble up, then go for more March on, men of clay Are you selves or slaves? Don't put strings on me 'cause I don't want to be A puppet from your legion of fools I am breaking the rules I spit at your wind of lies, It won't serve to change my mind You preach, you shriek, you're weak You hide it fine. Where were they in times of war? Are they proud they've missed the show? The past, a day ago...Look, they just forgot
