Lyrics


1. CHASING THE LIGHT

Freedom for all was the vision he had
Since the day he became the ruler there
And dark times did pass in this moment of light
For his reign brought the end of all the wrath

And he does not want anyone to be alone
Or feel like a lesser creature there
But a witches of the waves did take someone away
Who was far too beloved to get lost...

"Find him, save him, tell him, show him
Make him feel that he is not alone...
For my daughter want to love him
And to give his heart a home!"

"Through the sea he will hunt
Through the ocean ride
For it’s him she will blame
If he can’t save his life...
He can’t stop till he wins
For the oath of the king
Is the heart of the sea
Hunting hard, hunting free"

Sleeping by day, finding no rest by night
For a bright fire burning in his heart
Wishing for home as the first dusk sets in
Far away from his daughter’s gentle hand

Witnessing the face of unfulfilled desire
And leaving himself in loneliness
The fight will go on, till he gets what he wants
Nothing there will ever make him stop...

For both men have learnt the cold truth of this fight
Their friendship will last for their lives


2. ECLIPSE

I still can feel your heartbeat
And what did you expect?
Anguish by loves or lusts relics?
The warmth of thy desire
Felt so cold, left thee to shame
"A waste of all the time you spent to breathe?"

In between debris you’ll leave me
Broken hearted, cold as stone,
My world, you will be trading it for free

And I can see the morning rise
When you will see another dawn
The ashes of the sweet moments these nights

"How can you live with this concept?"
How could I live without my wrath?
"With deepest sorrow, dark as death..."

"I would give in to your world
If you’d take me by the hand
So far away this day might be, I’d wait...
Not to dare a single dream in me
I feel so bare without
The risk you never take
Means pain, can’t see..."

So you hit my door and think
That I’ll be on my way to keep
The wounds at heart wide open
As your prey?

And I can see this storm go by
Leaving me, exposed to shame
For wishes that we shared by nights and days

What do you think did I expect?
"A life in sorrow, dark as death?"
What do you think would I regret?


3. LORDS OF THE SEA

Fighting their fear and facing the wrath
Of others to join them and flames to impact
No rules of engagement
No spoilers for violent desires

Hungry for power the beasts clash within
The walls of the townhall
Where soon one will sing
Of merciless battles
Fought by the lords of the sea

The beating fists
The fiery breath of the dragons
Fills the place with it's own scent
The scent of power

No mercy, no mercy!
For the faint at heart, the weak!
They're falling, they're falling!
But no one of them does weep!

Acting as if they were thirsty for death
Unfilled and still mighty their hunger for flesh
Bones cracking loud
When the end takes control of those living

Honor is asking a price much to high
when moments of agony soon pass them by
Victory got it’s own hell for them
As they defend it

"Driven by hate I feel for all of them
who take control of all my want
and all my will
I can't deny their end is near"

So my hero takes his final breath
Not a word left before he falls for me

"Failed to knock them down
I saw thy image crumble as they pass
Your dead body lying on a stone
As your soul is drained within..."

Before thee, end thee, save thee, behold me...
Force thee, hate thee, kill thee, can't do that...

"Every moment I can get
To take a hold of my heart
I try to find a way to keep my life
A lasting second on the run"

Eye for an eye
Son for a son
Life for a life
Not!
Resist your hate!


4. FLOW THIS DESERT

I got used to the void inside me,
Abused by life I'll fight the emotions used
To tear me down, and lose my ground,
I call for something, someone else,
Something somehow burst my spell.
Crests of waves shall carry me
Far beyond my mind to see.

Not yet to fail,
Try to prevail,

Flow this desert.
Everything grows underneath my feet.
Wash away the dust that lies beneath.

Under full sail to the light,
Straight horizon, out of sight.
Wash ashore, what I will leave behind,
Things I buried in my mind.

Can't remember when or why I left,
The desert wipes away my steps,
On those dreary, dusty paths; my trial.
I'm freezing in the night,
Expecting morning light
To sear again while waiting for the shiver
Wash me away,
And now I'm drifting astray,
But my way is my destination.

Not yet to fail,
Try to prevail,

Flow this desert.
Everything grows underneath my feet.
Wash away the dust that lies beneath.

Under full sail to the light,
Straight horizon, out of sight.
Wash ashore, what I will leave behind,
Things I buried in my mind.

Drifting astray, but my way is my destination
Illuminate, horizons gate, my path turns red.


5. THROUGH MY EYES

Don't confine what is mine, do you hear me?
Never break what I take or you'll feel me.
I'll come for you tonight when your eyes are shut.
The last ride on the wings of your dreams.
I'll clip them on your flight,
And you'll drown in blackness not able to fight.

Feeble screams faint with fear,
Evil beings time to sear.

Look through my eyes, what do you see?
A heart that dies, a soul is free.
That's the answer to my plea,
You'll pay for what you've done to me.

Don't burn what I built, flames awash in smoke,
My feelings once enchained by your embrace.
Never mess what I cleaned.
You're always poisoning my mind,
My memories unrevealed.

Feeble screams faint with fear,
Evil beings time to sear.

Look through my eyes, what do you see?
A heart that dies, a soul is free.
That's the answer to my plea,
You'll pay for what you've done to me.

Ties lie broken since I died for you.
Ties lie broken now die for me too.
Forgotten, Forsaken, Awoken,
Dissipated, raging mind.
I can't ease the first for freedom from this answer,
My world is full of disbelief and pain.

Feeble screams faint with fear,
Evil beings time to sear.

Look through my eyes, what do you see?
A heart that dies, a soul is free.
That's the answer to my plea,
You'll pay for what you've done to me.


6. LOVEBEARING STORM

Drowning, lost in the dark cold night
Where she needed me to stay at her side
For the first time I saw my want and will
By her dreams I was chosen to fulfill

Night by night into sleep he fell
Where the need for love gave me my own hell
In the deepest gloom of his misery:
"Will the light of real love ever shine for me?"

I’m the kingdom
I’m the crown
I keep beholding
Whatever is shown
My love is (made) forever
(For) you and me
"May the light of real love always shine for me!"

No more I’m lost in the dead of the night
We have found each other, a lover, a bride
No more lonesome gazing at the moon anymore
"In your heart I witnessed what my life is for!"

A lover’s promise, the test of time
My heart is yours, will yours be mine
When the storm rose over thy boat at sea
Thou were saving my life, and you cared for me

Beneath the sea I drowned in despair
Was it wise or not to take me there
But no long time passed and the truth did come
For each other we’ve shown up as the only one

A different kind of morning
Light is breaking and dawn over me
Embraced by your gentleness and wisdom
I turn free from sleep
May our hearts beat together
Make eternity shine
for a second of living
A (sweet) moment in time

And riding through the ocean
I see that there’s nothing to fear
For living is like dancing
In the heaven of dreams when you’re near
May the world fall apart now
May the ocean dry
We have seen what it is worth living (for)
For a moment in time


7. STATE OF SUSPENSE

Gravity of thoughts
They pull you down
Carry your miles away
But often it is just one step
That makes you think of
How to escape
Which path to take
Like the red thread that guides you
Out of your labyrinth

Tied up, down on the seafloor
No way to surface again
And every move I make is
Taking my breath, strangling my neck

Just me shrouded in a nightmare
Cold water covering me
A place where light has never been

Emptiness surrounding my body
Cry -

Screams falling silently
Tears are drowning
Pressure fills my veins

Opened eyes
To get rid of my chains and free myself
From this blackened space

Ignorance - blown away by the rays of the sun
Enlightening my pale face

Blinded thoughts, now able to see
Thousands of colours are painting my scenery

Encaged - my selfbuilt prison
In depths nobody knows
And all my cries won't help me
Out of my pain, away from my grave

Just me gliding into nothing
All my life left behind
State of suspense in frozen time.


8. NEW DAWN

Nights before
I thought about all the days we made it out
But today I face tomorrow
Yes there's bigger fear than before
And lonely knights are getting more
But there won't be lies and sorrow

Again I have been told to let you go
Oh no
I am sorry, cause my head won't so

Burn my heart
Burn it out
Cause without you there's no doubt
That I won't need all those feelings for a new dawn
Take my soul
Carry down all those memories to your ground
But the water in your eyes says
Forever we are bound

Blackened times I hoped in pain
But all attempts where in vain
That you would change your destination
No there are no feelings left
Little needles bigger shaft
In my head just my fixation

Again I have been told to let you go
Oh no
But otherwise my blood would stop to flow

Burn my heart
Burn it out
Cause without you there's no doubt
That I won't need all those feelings for a new dawn
Take my soul
Carry down all those memories to your ground
But the water in your eyes says
Forever we are bound


9. MARIA MAGDALENA (SANDRA COVER)

You take my love, you want my soul
I would be crazy to share your life, why can't you see what I'm
Sharpen your senses and drawn the knife
Hold me and you'll understand

[Chorus:]
I'll never be Maria Magdalena
(you're a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(you're a victim of the fight, you need love)
promise me delight
(you need love)

Why must I lie, find any price
When will you wake up and realize I can't surrender to you
Play for affection and win the price
I know these party games too

[Chorus]


10. SEDUCED LIKE MAGIC

She took away reality
And brought me to this place to see
I never thought that this could be for real
While often life is cold
And I’m sometimes feeling sold
There seems to be another realm
Where I can feel a higher sense

The way she brought me there
Was somehow wicked and obscure
But like a child I lost the doubt when I saw light
I could not understand how I did breathe
And opened eyes beneath the sea,
But my heart followed her call that took me away

Easily she got me done, this night
I never saw something like this before…

To prey I’m fallen, to seductive art
(of) a mistress of the warm sea at night
A witch of the waves

Storms can’t kill the faith in rainbows
But when the dawn does come you should
Wrap your arms around the right one

No need for nothing else I felt
And so I could let the ice melt
Between us and I took her really near
For a single moment that did take away
My sense for what is real
And what was just a great illusion of a dream

Addicted to her fingertips
I reached out for her hand, her lips
And finally her cloak did disappear
But when I took her in my arms
And held her close, I felt no heart
And found that she was nothing more
Than faking me to death

Reason’s light had got me back, again
So hard to wake, when all you
(thought you) "loved", is gone


11. THE QUEST

A misty morning, I’m awake
The storm has settled, past’s the rage
The fever of the wind is gone
The (first) beams of sunlight soon will come

I love the flood, I love the tide
The spinning hurricane’s alright
No need to mention the sea - lore
I own the wisdom of...

The sea I know
My bride and my disguise
The answer to all my questions

I’m a creature of the sea
Where I find everything I need
Of every star I know the name
The benefits of my bright fame

Whatever I’ve on mind will come
By day the moon, by nights the sun
As long as I will have a ship
I can and will sail ‘cross...

The sea I know
My bride and my disguise
The sequel of reality

From the stars above
She has come to sail the world
By her fate enforced to rule
In her veins the blood is of water and of salt
In her eyes the white is clouds

The finest wisdom I received
From deepest pits and my beliefs
In mystic spirit lies my kind
A world beyond control...

No need for reason in my mind
In lasting faith I do define
My world is filled with finest art
That nature made so kindly


12. SEVEN SEAS

I try to reach you through this fog of ancient fear.
And I`ll return to you one day again, my dear.

I made this journey over seven seas for you.
Now I found the place and now, I found the truth.

This is the last step to my illumination now,
So long just waiting, searching,
Hoping and finding the way how.
On the water in this realm I see your face...
A revelation`s done, right moment, right place.

Once in a lifetime your dream is your destiny's way.
And here on the water...
This water, forever you`ll stay.

Dark waters now await my branded soul,
So much done to reach this deep dark hole.

The execution of all gains in my life before,
Is now, is then, and will be finally forevermore.
No more waiting, searching, hoping, and finding how,
As I've been told, I will reach your kingdom now.

Now I invite you to come to my kingdom with me,
No foretelling futures, through the eyes of the world you will see...
