Astral Doors

Notes from the Shadows tracks

Lyrics


1. THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST

He carried the cross; man upon his shoulder
Whatever they say there was love to be found
Mary Magdalene; you are desire
Talk to me again I don't want to forget
A serpent of lies or the last temptation of Christ
Last temptation of Christ
He will rise

He's the washer of sins, a painter of the future
Surrender to God to find eternal light
Judas Iscariot; the kiss of a traitor
Trick me again and I'll make you forget
Hear Lucifer's cry for the last temptation of Christ

Crucified; still alive
What have they done?
Last temptation of Christ

The Messiah or not; the day is getting closer
And the end of the world is not that far away
Virgin Mary said: the dream is broken
Save me once again from the Devil inside
A serpent of lies or the last temptation of Christ

Crucified; still alive
What have they done
Last temptation Of Christ
Crucified; still alive
What have they done
Is he the son of God?




2. DISCIPLES OF THE DRAGONLORD

Here are my notes from the shadows
Don't want to show them to you
Here are my notes from the darkness
Believe me it's true

In the dungeons of fire
In the chambers of misery
Permanent pain forever
Oh my God; what have they done?

Lived their lives in the fast lane
All obsessed by desire and gold
But everyone must pay the prize
It's no merciful fate, it's a circle of hate

Known as the fallen angel
See it from a different angle
He's the king of war and lies
But aren't we all

Disciples of the dragon lord
Disciples of the dragon lord
We are disciples of the dragon lord
The maker of evil

This is not another nightmare or fairytale
We're all disciples of the dragon lord
Disciples of the dragon lord
You're trying to recall
Crawling out of Hell though from heaven sent
We're all disciples of the dragon lord

There is blood on the altar
It's a twisted reality
Prophets of black illusions
Now enslaved by the one

Ice, flames and hailstones
Tortured minds, bodies and souls
Eternity is here and now
He's the son of a whore; he's the servant to call

Sinners need a savior
But then you will owe him a favour
The ocean is raging wild
Here we are

Disciples of the dragon lord
Disciples of the dragon lord
Some heads are gonna roll
We are disciples of the dragon lord
Disciples of the dragon lord

You know there's no mountain of freedom
The chains will never break
At the dragon's den
It's stronger than steel

Don’t you know that he's known as the fallen angel
Now see it from a different angle
The king of war and lies

Aren’t we all Disciples of the dragon lord
Some heads gonna roll
Disciples of the dragon lord
We're all disciples of the dragon lord
You're trying to recall
Crawling out of Hell though from heaven sent
We are disciples of the dragon

In the dungeons of fire; in the chambers of mystery
Permanent pain forever
Oh dragon lord; I raise my cup
Obsessed by desire, what have we done?
Turning the sun into fire
I try to escape; trying to see it all

I'm waiting for the dragon lord




3. WAILING WALL

Reading from the black book
Suicidal remedy
Travel to the end of time
A stranger in us all

Raw ride through raging storms and thunder
Cast away the spirit going under
These words will lead to the lonely shadows

'Cause he's a man on a wire
Balancing on the Wailing Wall
Glory for hire; it's all in your mind
Soon the night will fall at the Wailing Wall

Talking to the demons
Conversation overload
Treason of humanity
These chains will never break

Black thoughts; no expectations
Empty souls in all sleeping nations
This path will lead us into forever

For a thousand years and more this will go on
It will haunt you and haunt me
Oh baby

Raw ride through raging storms and thunder
Cast away the spirit going under
These words will lead to the lonely shadows

For a thousand years and more this will go on




4. SHADOWCHASER

There is crossroad between heaven and hell
So many play us that song
And it's easy now drifting away
But you'll end up like all the rest
As a shadow chaser

Life is an endless fight
Nailed to the cross tonight
The mark of the devil is pierced into your skin
Let the madness begin

This fury and anger, just let it all out
A new kind of virus is here
Insulted people don't know what is right
And no one seems to care
But you see them everywhere
I spit on your name

You're a shadow chaser
With a twisted mind
You're a shadow chaser; live and let die
In a different world at another place
On a different lane you could stop the chase

Stepping across the line
Every single time
The forces of evil has captured your soul
So let the bad times roll

Extremely determined to do what it takes
Power is sweeter than love
You take what you want, you smash and grab
No one gets the point; you're a soldier at the front

You're a shadow chaser
With a twisted mind
You're a shadow chaser; live and let die
In a different world at another place
On a different lane you could stop the chase

Shadow chaser
Shadow chaser

This fury and and anger, just let it all out
A new kind of virus is here
Insulted people don't know what is right
And no one seems to care
But you see them everywhere
I spit on your name

You better face it
You're a shadow chaser
You're hunting high and low
Don't wanna miss the show
When they play the final game

You're a shadow chaser
With a twisted mind
You're a shadow chaser; live and let die
In a different world at another place
On a different lane you could stop the chase




5. DIE ALONE

I feel I'm falling like the autumn leaves
I know the only way is down
But I've always known I'll die alone

Pilgrim; what's the story of your lonely life?
I believe that you had other plans but now it's getting clearer
So tell me father; what did you find in the holy land?
There is evil in the tales of the Lord and the Holy Ghost
True Sacrifice

Why do people fear the reaper?
The reaper is the light
No confessions will save me now

I'll die alone
I'll die alone
In solitude I pray to the man on the golden throne
I'll die alone
Carve my name into the stone

Teacher; can you tell me 'bout your misery
In the maze of all this lunacy; religion and confusion
Man is no fortress; in the realms they say eternity
Is the prize to win; just follow the words all the wise men wrote
No Sacrifice

How could I deny the maker?
The maker is the light
No projection; save me now

I'll die alone
I'll die alone
In solitude I pray to the man on the golden throne
I'll die alone
Carve my name into the stone

A prison for the thousand souls of anger
Requiem of the entire human race

Burning brave ambitions; the dragon's on a mission
With human dreams and thoughts of what is right

In my life I was a loner
And I died in solitude
A golden bridge to heaven
For the misunderstood

I feel I'm falling like the autumn leaves
I know the only way is down
But I've always known my destiny

I'll die alone
I'll die alone
In solitude I pray to the man on the golden throne
I'll die alone
Carve my name into the stone

Carve my name into; why do people fear the reaper
The reaper is light
No confession will save me now

I'll die alone
I'll die alone
In solitude I pray to the man on the golden throne
I'll die alone
Carve my name into the stone

In my life I was a loner
And I died in solitude
Is there a golden bridge to heaven
For the misunderstood
Now your eyes are closed forever
Tortured until your dying breath
There's finally peace of mind
For all the lost that was found
In my life I was a loner
And I died in solitude
Is there a golden bridge to heaven
For the misunderstood

Misunderstood

I'll die alone
I'll die alone




6. HOODOO CEREMONY

(Instrumental)




7. SOUTHERN CONJURATION

Louisiana rendezvous
We keep traditions alive
Mississippi passing through
Crossroad tell me where I will go this time

Black cat bones
Inside this body you're never alone
Enchanted stones
Spirits gather; stronger together

People do believe a skeleton key
Is hidden in the mind
Hoodoo ceremony the knowledge is free
So use it while you can

They're on the bayou to write
The book of black magic might
And southern conjuration
They have no right
To open Pandora's box
And let the wicked things out

This is a witchcraft enterprise
To take your honor away
They are the children of the swamp
Led by the powers of the mojo bag

Conjuring Queen
Inside this brain you never will see
Revenge is sweet
We ain't gonna take it, get ready to break it

People do believe a skeleton key
Is hidden in the mind
Hoodoo ceremony the knowledge is free
So use it while you can

They're on the bayou to write
The book of black magic might
And southern conjuration
They have no right
To open Pandora's box
And let the wicked things out

Brought by the slaves
To America's states
A wise man said: they won't forget

They're on the bayou to write
The book of black magic might
And southern conjuration
They have no right
To open Pandora's box
And let the wicked things out

Superstitious man
Run while you can
A wise man said: you're already dead




8. WALKER THE STALKER

Walker the stalker the fundamental spy
Loving you to death though you are eager not to die
Walker the stalker breathing down your neck
Your guardian in the dead of night

Play out the player
There are many roads to cross
If there's a reason to doubt just let it all out
Pay the costs

You'd better lock the door, they're coming for more
Here is the night never turn off the light
If someone knocks on the door, you know it for sure
This nightmare is closer than ever

Peter the cheater surfing on your fear
Insulting your name when he thinks that no one hears
Walker the stalker the emperor of pain
Standing at the end of fights

Take out the taker
Don't ever close your eyes
There is a lesson to learn or bodies will burn
So hold your ground

You'd better lock the door, they're coming for more
Here is the night never turn off the light
If someone knocks on the door, you know it for sure
This nightmare is closer than ever

Walker the talker the fundamental spy
Loving you to death though you are eager not to die
Walker the talker breathing down your neck
Your guardian in the dead of night

You'd better lock the door, they're coming for more
Here is the night never turn off the light
If someone knocks on the door, you know it for sure
This nightmare is closer than ever

Play out the player
There are many roads to cross
If there's a reason to doubt just let it all out
And pay the prize

You'd better lock the door, they're coming for more
Here is the night never turn off the light
If someone knocks on the door, you know it for sure
This nightmare is closer than ever




9. DESERT NIGHTS

There was no space in my tiny cell
It was as close as can be to Hell
Went to a shrink to get some
Terrorist slayer; kill or be done

Lonely was the sniper
Nice and clean that July day
Patriot hearts were burning
I wonder why we are the plague
And not the salt here on the earth
I'll remember that day, for what that is worth

Turn off the light
Hiding in the desert nights
The sky is on fire
We're out of sight
I still remember
Women and wine, pleasure to find
In the desert night

He wasn't honored with medals of gold
He only did what he'd been told
This will go on forever
Power play justice; kill or be done

Saved by all the violence
Now replaced by someone else
Juveniles on vacation
I wonder why; was he the one
And how come all made the mistake
No one cried on that day he was sent away

Turn off the light
Hiding in the desert nights
The sky is on fire
We're out of sight
I still remember
Women and wine, pleasure to find
In the desert night




10. IN THE NAME OF ROCK

I saw the writings on the wall right before my eyes
Came out as soon I heard the call; reached for the sky
Walked down the lane of make believe in the pouring rain
I'm too clever, forever I will rule this kingdom of pain

Just a boy with the fist held high
Long hair, mama cried
I had power to blow them all away

In the name of rock
I'll fight forever
In the name of rock
I've sworn the oath tonight, unite
In the name of rock

Stray cat, living on the street, but the strong will rise
Black dog; dirt under my feet; a lord in disguise
This is the story of my life, this is all for real
Wild attraction, a slave under the knife, addicted to steel

But the music found my way
Made me what I am today
There's a God and now I see the light

In the name of rock
I'll fight forever
In the name of rock
I've sworn the oath tonight, unite
In the name of rock

In the name of rock
In the name of rock
In the name of rock
In the name of rock

Just a boy with the fist held high
Long hair, mama cried
I had power to blow them all away

In the name of rock
I'll fight forever
In the name of rock
I've sworn the oath tonight, unite
In the name of rock




11. CONFESSIONS

I've spent my life in oh, so many ways
It's time to tell my story
Hungry people; in prison for life
Of the son and the father we cry

Praising the bones
Riding the flame
Be wise easy rider
Bride of Christ
Babylon rise
Evil spirits will fly

You know one life can be pleasure and pain
The green mile's been walked but we'd do it again
Cry out tonight as loud as you can
But here are my confessions again

We've seen the world, we've played on every stage
In rock we trust forever
In the London Caves to fight the freedom war
Power and glory but we still wanted more

It's the seventh crusade
To the ocean of sand
Cold war survivor: let's do it again
Bastard son
The rider will come
So you must carry on

You know one life can be pleasure and pain
The green mile's been walked but we'd do it again
Cry out tonight as loud as you can
But here are my confessions again

Is it only a game?
Confessions again
Have I been dreaming?
So wake me up

Let's burn down the wheel
And pull the brake
The call of the wild child
Fire in the house
Breaker of clouds
No black rain tonight

You know one life can be pleasure and pain
The green mile's been walked but we'd do it again
Cry out tonight as loud as you can
But here are my confessions again
