    Battalions Of Fear

    1. Majesty

    Now the time has come for me to leave this landTake my charge with pride sacrificeRunning and hiding I'm left for the time

    To bring back the order of divineHunted by goblins no Gandalf to helpWith swords in the nightOh the last part of the gameDecision of death and lifeBlood for Sauron they'll call tonightThe final battle cryRunning and hiding I'm left for the timeTo bring back the order of divineThere exist no tales and hobbits are crying for allChildren of deathI have a dream the things you've to hide for

    Deliver our kingdom and our ReichDon't fall in panic just give me the thingThat I need or I killDon't run away for what have I done

    Cries Cries in a dark landHear the voice it's cold as iceEyes they are watchingThey look for me but cannot findCreature is following no place to escapeMy last steps will find the right wayWhere's the future the call of the blindCause there is none to find

    Watch the sky you see no lightMy weapons burst with fearWith the howling wolves the nazgul will dieFor all Children of deathCries Cries in a dark landHear the voice it's cold as iceEyes they are watchingThey look for me but cannot findRun Run for the whole worldIt's time you cannot waitLost Lost in a dark worldYou feel the strange but cannot seeToo many battles we carry along from the war

    And too many frightens we feel from his lawFor so many victories we're praising so strongFor so many blood we've lost

    [Ref:]I'm alone, follow me!Calling you, follow me!I'm alone, follow me!Follow the blindFollow meFollow me it's my timeFollow meFollow the blind

    Wandering in my darkest dreams Iron shadows are lurking at meIn this desert the tyrant's calling On the run to save my loveShe's full of pain The queen is lying far behindIn an endless dream[Solo:Andre]

    Before I thought I was dreamingA strange voice whispers in my earsYou're the rat in the trapReturn, pain will come to you

    5. Hall Of The King

    Alone I walk, hearing a voice, That's calling my nameNo one with you, God, why I didn't careOn through death take me away

    To the place time will not fadeColder than dead, Darkness - eternity, But look out

    A hundred thousand centuries The sun had never seenSo near but much too far Eternal place you know what's lifeBut cannot tell

    I can never see you changing But you look to meTime will never heal your wounds But you're immortal

    Hall of the King a vision of the endHall of the King don't cry for us

    Don't hear us calling Oh watch out for me Hall of the lightMy last sin

    You find yourself, just take a look To see you must open your eyesLike a hawk in the sky, a wonder that dies Don't ask me why

    [Lead:Andre]

    You're the birth and you're the endYou've been hurt but you're not deadDiscovering you is what should never bePoisoned are our souls, And dark our heartsRuins we have left to rule the world

    Destructive are our minds, It's much too late[Solo:Kai Hansen / Harmony lead: Kai Hansen]

    Blood on his hands he's born a thousand timesWhy don't we feel the signs from the dragon king[Lead:Andre]

    Before the end of fire his journey startsThe eagle's spreading his wings following his fateHe's ruled from anywhere leads him to truth it's deep inside

    Hail to the king they bless tonight He's the Saviour of our time

    Hail to the king of MelniboneHe's the Saviour of our time

    9. Don't Break The Circle

    [by Demon]

    Don't break the circleDon't break the circle

    Concentrate!I'm your contact link across the great divideMany voices in my earHold on I think there's something coming throughFrom the other side. It's for all those who believeThe chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbrokenSo beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

    Don't break the circle

    Don't break the circle

    UnexplainedMany things we thought were lost may come to lightOn a higher plain in the spirit worldWhere only a few of us possess the second sightNow the messenger awaitsThe chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbrokenSo beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

    Don't break the circleDon't break the circle.The circle must keep going on and on

    But waitIs there one amongst us here who believes?A stranger to the signTake care, for all the things you fearMay be revealedWithin the forces of the nightThe chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbrokenSo beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

    Don't break the circleDon't break the circleDon't break the circle

    Don't break the circleThe circle must keep going on and onThe circle must keep going on and on

    Now you all knowThe bards and their songs

    When hours have gone byI'll close my eyesIn a world far awayWe may meet againBut now hear my songAbout the dawn of the nightLet's sing the bards' song

    Tomorrow will take us awayFar from homeNo one will ever know our namesBut the bards' songs will remain

    Tomorrow will take it awayThe fear of todayIt will be goneDue to our magic songs

    There's only one songLeft in my mindTales of a brave manWho lived far from hereNow the bard songs are overAnd it's time to leaveNo one should ask you for the nameOf the one

    Who tells the story

    Tomorrow will take us awayFar from homeNo one will ever know our namesBut the bards' songs will remainTomorrow all will be knownAnd you're not aloneSo don't be afraidIn the dark and cold'Cause the bards' songs will remainThey all will remain

    In my thoughts and in my dreamsThey're always in my mindThese songs of hobbits, dwarfs and menAnd elvesCome close your eyesYou can see them too

    I'm alive

    The dying dragon brought trouble and painAnd horror to the halls of stoneI'll take the mighty stoneAnd leave the dwarfs behindIce and fire and forest we passedAnd horror in the halls of stone

    Trolls in the dark

    The dawn took them allCaught in the woodBy the wooden king's menBut now I'm alone'Cause I've made up my mindBy the spell of gold

    [Lead: Andre]

    The king under the mountainWill risk the great warOh what a foolHe's losing control

    It's turning fasterAway from light straight to the darkThe march of time it has begunI'm caught in an ancient dream so bright

    And then the march of time begins

    The man in black he waitsBehind this last taskIt's full of painTo sacrifice the only sonThe legions of the lostWait in the old mineThey try to stop meThe battle it has begun

    So I'm not afraid

    To walk down the wastelandI'm so alone on my wayAnd I don't fear that dusty godforsaken pathSomewhere far beyond

    Somewhere far beyondThe march of time it has begunSomewhere far beyond your realityAnd then the march of time begins

    [Lead: Andre]

    Look at my soul

    And behindThere are some thinsI've to hide from youI'm following the black manI'm losing controlAnd I don't careWhat's happening to the boy

    Welcome to a new worldOne more step to the dark towerAnd my whole body's in flamesI'm looking forThose healing things to be preparedThe march of time it has begunI'm caught in a prisoner's dirty lifeAnd then the march of time begins

    The prisoner did bring the healing spellThe queen of shadows found herself in painAnd death brings answers to us all

    What will I findWhen the dark tower appearsWill it be the endOr just a new quest after all

    I am the narratorAnd now I'll tell youWhere I'd been

    Look around and seeThe world is turning fastFaster day by daySomewhere far beyondI'll try to change it

    If I can - Somewhere far beyondThere's only one chanceAnd it lies - Somewhere far beyondSomewhere far beyondThe march of time it has begunThe march of time it has begun

    11. Spread Your Wings

    [originally recorded by Queen]

    Sammy was low,

    just watching the show,over and over again.He knew it was time,he'd made up his mind,to leave his dead life behind.

    His boss said to himboy, you'd better beginto get those crazy notionsright out of your headSammy who do you think that you are?You should have been sweeping,at the emerald bar.

    spread your wings and fly away,fly away, far away.Spread your little wings and fly awayfly away, far away.Pull yourself together,'cause you know you should do better,that's because you're a free man.

    He spends his evenings alone,in his hotelroom.Keeping his thoughts to himself,

    he'd be leaving soon.Wishing he was miles and miles away,nothing in this world, nothing,

    would make him stay.

    Since he was small,had no luck at all,nothing came easy to him.Now it was time,he'd made up his mind,

    this could be my last change

    His boss said to himnow listen boy, you're always dreaming,you got no real ambition,you won't get worried for.Sammy, boy don't you know who you are?why can't you be happy,at the emerald bar?

    (So honey) spread you wings and fly away,fly away, far away.

    spread your little wings and fly away,fly away, far away.pull yourself together,'cause you know you should do better,that's because your a free man.come on honey (fly with me)...

    1. Imaginations From The Other Side

    Where are these silent facesI took them allThey all went awayNow you're aloneTo turn out every light so deep in meHold on, too late

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

    Or were they killedBy the old evil ghostWho had takenThe oceanOf all my dreamsWhich were worth to keepDeep inside my heartI wish ICould get them back

    From the everflowBefore they'll fade awayImaginations from the other sideFar out of nowhereIt got back to my mindImaginations from the other sideFar out of nowhereIt got back to my mindOut of the darkBack to the lightThen I'll break downThe walls around my heartImaginations from the other side

    Where's the ocean's daughterWas Peter Pan in MordorNo one's there to keep aliveAll these fairy talesMay I return to OzWill I meet the "Tin Man""Coward Lion" where are youWithout brain the scarecrow's lostIn the middle of the lakeStranded in the real worldLeft in the world

    Caught in an old cage

    The system failedBuilt up on liesNow I see that I'm aloneIn asylum's cageI'm left alone

    I'm alive my friendI can feel the shadows everywhereI'm aliveI left the shadowsFar behind meAnother one is waiting in the dark

    They say the system keepsThe last chance to surviveCaught in this labyrinthOf walls and lot's of liesThen I began to understandThere's more above then iceTo reach the topI crept deep downThe answers given in the pastA senseless worthIn useless brainsMagic runes

    Without a meaningBesides the darkThere should be nothing left

    Caught in an old cageThe system failedBuilt up on liesNow I see that I'm aloneIn asylum's cageI'm left alone

    Hallowed be the fatherlandGod he knowsHow long I'd been awayFrom here I did start for the search soFull of diseaseI still hear my cry outsFrom the old cellar's inside

    Born in the days of medievalMy inner voiceIs always asking why

    I came from nowhereWithout a task, without a nameDon't fear my evilFate, so god please lead me throughForgotten realmsMysterious dreamsIn sunless rooms I'd swornI'll finish what I started, onceI'll find the holy grail

    In the holy land

    Returning of the miraclesIt's my own requiemThe jester's tearsThey are inside meAgony's the script for my requiemReturning of the miraclesIt's my own requiemIs the script already writtenJester's tears I cryYes, I cry

    I went out of my mindIn desert landsInsanity's pawnOut of controlMuch too long I've been isolatedFrom my thoughtsEnclosed by the leader's spellBewildered to marchAs a glory knightAnd I tried

    Still I hear the scream of thousands:

    "Crucify, crucify!!!Take it allOur gold, our homes, our life,

    I never wanted to beWhat they told me to beFulfill my fate than I'll be free

    God knows how longI tried to change fate

    Born in a mourning hallShadows left the fear insideThe Peter Pan will never reachThe other side

    It's frighteningExciting to sit at homeAnd watch the burning fields getHypnotized by the TV snakeObey and work hardAnd feel no anger

    Just sympathy for the higher classThere's no chance in changingThingsCause I am

    The Peter Pan will never reachThe other side

    And I'm a part of a machineA puppet on the stringsA rebel, onceNow I'm an old man

    Oh, I know it can't go onBut the ghost called fear insideLames my tongue, my nerves,My mindEternal fall downSomeone cut the strings offI can't moveTo get back courageI've to face the truthBut not todayGoodbye

    Freezing meI feel restless and lowThese days full of sadnessHad joyfully changedInto fearMy freakshow will start tonightDon't miss the right time

    Bright eyesBlinded by fear of lifeNo Merlin is by my side

    Everything is out of control

    Everything is out of controlIn my future plansEverything is out of controlNo one's left to hurtEverything is out of controlSorrow's gone away

    Broken memoriesWalking upstairsStep by stepI see the whole world burningThe poet dies in NewerlandHow it burns

    Hey, mother stubbornI really hate youIf you say yes I will say noAshes to ashesBut dust won't be dustIf you go thereI will go back

    Bright eyesBlinded by fear of lifeBetrayed by sunrise

    To lose all the gamesWith a smiling face

    Bright eyesBlinded by fear of lifeAnd dark dragons riseBright eyesBlinded by fear of lifeNo Merlin is by my side

    So I sit still in my room, todayWinter's here

    In summer seasonShall I sayI was wrongIf I'm rightFarewell to my last hope

    9. And The Story Ends

    And the story endsInsanity said coldlyStill waiting for the chanceSo out of nowhere it will riseOh, and another journey startsBy the call of the moon

    Was it really meI saw in the mirror screamingI swallowed hate and liesThrough a thousand criesSomeone's sucking out my energy

    What can I doOn this road to nowhere

    Heart of dragon liesAt the edge of time

    And the story endsInsanity said coldlyStill waiting for the chanceSo out of nowhere it will riseOh, and another journey startsInto insanity's claws

    Come with me and join meA new life's waiting for youJump through the mirrorLeave fear behindNo matter where I triedThe candle light seemed

    Lost foreverBefore my vision fades-cathedral

    A wooden cup and a crown of thornsWill set up the stage for the crossI rent a room next doorThere is nothing moreNo further voices to hearI'll be free

    It doesn't matter anymore that someone's knocking at my doorI've known it long before the Galilean's on the floorShame on me, shame on me

    I'm a tool and nothing moreI can feel it's getting nearerImages they'll turn out clearerCreeps in and out of your mindI'm destiny personifiedI know there's something more behindBut is it really justifiedTo sacrifice, to crucifyThe rescue of the human kind

    Sadly sings destinySadly sings destiny

    "For ages I've been waitingNow spring is in the airLet it in"Sadly sings destinySadly sings destiny"For ages I've been waitingNow spring is in the airLet it in"

    I hear them howling hear them screamThe raging mob turns mad it seems"The king's in townWe need a crown"I think we all know how it ends

    "So we're not going take it longer"So all I know is I don't care"So we're not going take it longer"Now we are aware

    I can feel it's getting nearerImages they'll turn out clearerCreeps in and out of your mindI'm destiny personifiedI know there's something more behind

    But is it really justifiedTo sacrifice, to crucifyThe rescue of the human kind

    Sadly sings destinySadly sings destiny"For ages I've been waitingNow spring is in the airLet it in"Sadly sings destiny

    Sadly sings destiny"For ages I've been waitingNow spring is in the airLet it in"

    There I tie the assThere I tie the coltBegging for a last chance I hear the voices say"We get him home tonight and that's all you need to know"I'm alone

    So I can't stand it any longer

    And don't want to see it allNazarene, your vision will come trueWill come trueThey'll get you

    I can feel it's getting nearerImages they'll turn out clearerCreeps in and out of your mindI'm destiny personifiedI know there's something more behindBut is it really justifiedTo sacrifice, to crucifyThe rescue of the human kind

    Sadly sings destinySadly sings destiny"For ages I've been waitingNow spring is in the airLet it in"Sadly sings destinySadly sings destiny"For ages I've been waitingNow spring is in the airLet it in"

    5. The Maiden And The Minstrel Knight

    The faithful crowd is gathered hereSoon they'll appearThe high and mighty show up the kingIs in doubts"Apart from this beggar hereThere's no one like you my dearTasting my lipsNo one but you and him"

    Round the fire everyone should sing

    And praise the gracious queenRound the fire everyone should danceAnd we praise the handsome knight

    Forever and ever we both will be oneThe maiden, the fair and the youngFell in love

    Will you still wait for me?Will you still cry for me?

    Come and take my handWill you still wait for me?Will you still cry for me?Come and take my hand

    There's a moment in life when all the years will pass byAnd the eyes filled with tears we once shedWe recognize failures, the desperate criesOf the ones who believed in our lies

    Whenever I'll go you'll be with meMy first though and my last

    Though we'll depart in bitternessOne day you'll understand

    Carry onBeloved maiden, mineCarry onOr we have to pay the price

    Will you still wait for me?Will you still cry for me?Come and take my handWill you still wait for me?Will you still cry for me?

    Come and take my hand

    Yesterday's memories and melodiesAre gone with the wind, so sadSnow-white her hands and golden her hairBut she's not the oneOut in the emptiness where everything's paleThere is no sign of you, I'm aloneHow I wish you would be here, I'm aloneTelling me it's alright, come rest (your head)Come rest your headCome rest your headCome rest your headCome rest your head

    I'm alone and sadness reigns in my heartAs long as we live it won't go awayWe are one but torn apart

    Will you still wait for me?Will you still cry for me?Come and take my handWill you still wait for me?Will you still cry for me?Come and take my hand

    Proudly it standsUntil the world's end

    Not at all

    In lower airs we're ground down by their ignorance

    Hate will grow like a foul cancerTo find a foe seems to be the answerRound and round it goes on and again oh

    I can't get it out of my head

    Wish I'd be a bird of preyA pure and a blessedA hawk who could ease the pain

    Don't look back tell meIs it where you belongA place in the darkA song without hopeDon't look back tell meIs it where you (belong)

    Oh I wait for an answer so farDon't look back tell meIs it where you (belong)I will wait for an answer so farDon't look back tell meIs it where you (belong)I will wait yes I will waitDon't look back

    Don't be a foolStop spinning around(Spinning around)Don't move it ain't safe here

    They've stained holy groundsOh no

    The hopeful he sadly admits there's no heroNo place to hide there is no shelter from the stormThe maddened crow will spread terrorBut I know bitterly they will stumbleFind themselves smashed on the ground

    Don't look back tell meIs it where you belongA place in the darkA song without hopeDon't look back tell meIs it where you (belong)Oh I wait for an answer so farDon't look back tell meIs it where you (belong)I will wait for an answer so farDon't look back tell meIs it where you (belong)I will wait yes I will waitDon't look back

    It's you who has said there's no tomorrow

    I don't know but who I amI wouldn't sit back any longerIt's surely built in sadness

    But the sadness surely will go bySo we will all know the answerThe answer's within, it's in your mind

    7. The Soulforged

    I'm not insaneThat's how it seems thoughSpiteful, cruel but wise beyond his age

    My body failsMy soul will (rise)The end of life's immortalizedDisease and agonyAnd I see death through golden e
