LYRICS

THE LAST RAY OF THE DYING SUN

 

"In the year of the unicorn

To relieve the world of pain

Monks gathered to chant

To exile the demon of war

From the corona of their sun

To the core of another one...."

 

 

FIRST RAY OF THE DYING SUN

(instrumental)

 

 

A PEACEFUL WORLD

Can I ask

Can I ask for permission

Can I ask for permission to remember

Our past

Our past is important

Our past is important for our future

...a peaceful world...

Will I die

Will I die for beliving

Will I die for beliving in tomorrow

Here you are

Here you are to remember

Here you are to remember this moment

...a peaceful world...

 

 

"A world peaceful and advanced

Shadows sweeping over the land

Thunder is heard in the distance

Lightning reveal the change in people's mind"

 

 

AWAKENING OF A DIFFERENT PLANET

Two suns gathered in the sky

Two moons hoover over the sea

The clouds have disappeared

from the bright green-coloured sky

The day is coming to an end

In one hour the suns will set in the west

Night sky is crowned by

The two moons mighty light

Awakening

I can feel, something's wrong

Shaking in

Can't stop, my trembling body

Breaking in

Can't trust my eyes, lord

Awakening

on a different planet

I have seen

The awakening of a new planet

I have seen

The rising of a brand new world

We awoke

to a brave new dawn

Planets in the sky

reflect my mood this night

The rings of Saturn has altered

Venus has shifted its course

When will they align again

Writhe in searing pain

I have seen

The awakening of a new planet

I have seen

The rising of a brand new world

 

 

"Heavy boots marching on cobbled streets...

Congregating below the tower on 1698 West Avenue

Word is spreading...there are changes to come

No way to speak your mind and stay alive

Leave and don’t look back.."

 

 

SIXTEEN-NINETYEIGHT

I can´t seem to make up my mind

should I leave my past behind

The world move forward in gentle pace

can´t seem to let go of my old ways

I won´t go

I won´t go

I won´t go back to

Sixteen ninety-eight

I need a change, I need it now

How will I do it, I don´t now how

I need it good, I need it well

I need it now, couse I´m in hell

I won´t go

I won´t go

I won´t go back to

Sixteen ninety-eight

 

 

DARK STAR

Winter storms around me

Am I all alone

The wind bites my face

Shivering rings of ice

Tears my skin to pieces

Time has come

The world hides around me

I cannot hear, I cannot see

And no-one knows where I am

The cold winds of ice

Are still reaping my face

What have I done wrong

Violent crystals rips my clothes

I am no longer conscious

Will I see again

The world hides around me

I cannot hear, I cannot see

Am I losing control

 

 

" My mind is weakened

But my heart is strong

I will flee this coming storm

Only to return in stronger form

All these changes

has confused my mind

I hope to find the answers

To what's changed my kind

I hope mother nature

Can heal those wounds

And give me strength to destroy the creature

That destroyed our peaceful world..."

 

 

SLEEPING BEAST

You´ll fight

You´ll scream

You´ll die, alone in your dream

You´ll sweat

You´ll scream

You´ll cheat, death in your dream

Coming for you when you´re asleep

Not waking up, you are in to deep

Trying to flee, running to hide

Not waking up, the Beast is by your side

The sleeping Beast that hides at day

When you´re awake no soul to slay

When night arrives The Beast awakes

He wants your life, your soul to take

Supressing the Beast when you´re awake

Better be strong, your life is at stake

Staying alive is not a sin

Better not wake, The Beast sleeps within

You´ll fight

You´ll scream

You´ll die, alone in your dream

You´ll sweat

You´ll cry

You´ll die, alone in your dream

The sleeping Beast that hides at day

When you´re awake no soul to slay

When night arrives The Beast awakes

He wants your life, your soul to take

 

 

CATHEDRAL WOODS, COSMIC SKIES

I lie awake

When dawn comes creepin' in

No dreams tonight

When no sleep can be found

My dreams are rain

Flowing in an endless stream

My final hour

In the life as it was

Dreams of hope

The sound of falling rain

Endless night

Clouds are rolling in

No more pain

The woods are still alive

Letting go, just letting go

Is there life on the other side

I nearly found, my way through life

When truth came by, I lost my hope

I fought a battle, against evil

Now I know my fate, lie beyond this world

How can I find

A way to the other side

Lose control

Over time and space and life

The night is dark

The moon is hollow and cold

I lie awake

When dawn comes creepin' in

I Nearly found, my way through life

When truth came by, I lost my hope

I fought a battle, against evil

Now I know my fate, lie beyond this world

 

 

" A Dark and desert wilderness

A temporary place to call our Home

No trees to cover our whereabouts

Only sand to cover our tracks

Dark forces gathering

Moving through the mists of dawn

Chasing us down like flocks of mice

This will be the end of time"

 

 

DISINTEGRATOR

You win, you lose

It's not your choice to live anymore

The battle has it's own life

A fight to the inner core

Freedom was almost in our hands

But we never got close enough

I never backed down, or out

Even when life got too rough

Who do you turn to

when your sons die in war

The good Lord doesn´t exist here anymore!

The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore

The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore

You win, you lose

It's not your fight anymore

The human race has come astray

Moving to the exit door

Fight for freedom, fight for life

It´s not your fight anymore

Our old world is blown away

We´re moving to the exit door

Who do you turn to

when your sons die in war

The good Lord doesn´t exist here anymore!

The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore

The good Lord doesn´t live here anymore

 

 

BLUES FOR THE DYING SUN

(instrumental)

 

" Don't let us forget our past!

Let's not forget what we're fighting for!"

 

 

SONS OF THE FORGOTTEN

We are the sons of the forgotten

Children of the lunar sea

Travelling ´til the end of time

Sailing on the solar breeze

People from a distent world

Destination still unknown

The time is set – we are leaving

As soon as the two suns part

Running ´til the end of time

Leaving home far behind

Never know what we might find

Searching for a pice of mind

A world in chaos left behind

Never know what we might find

On a journey, lost in space

Disappeared without a trace

We are the sons of the forgotten

Out of sight and out of mind

Will we ever find our future

Or be forever lost in time

Running ´til the end of time

Leaving home far behind

Never know what we might find

Searching for a pice of mind
