End of Eden tracks

Lyrics

1. TALISMAN

Look behind the closed doors
Search in the empty drawers
What you're looking for you shall not ever find
The secret is hidden from the greedy eyes
Possessive hands and
Selfish minds of foolish and ignorant men

Still it is followed - the fools for the power!
"Talisman behind many wars
And its greedy eye wants more
Stars are sad for the children's blood and crying!"

See the shimmer of the golden piece, the beauty
Of the neckless against your pale young skin
Does it make you glad?
None of the beauty of the jewels
Shall you take into your tomb
The earthly bed is equally cold for our human bones

Fight for the glory despite other's worry!
"Talisman behind many wars
And its greedy eye wants more
Stars are sad for the children's blood and crying!"

"Talisman behind many wars
And its greedy eye wants more
Stars are sad for the children's blood and crying!"




2. COME NOW FOLLOW

He's lonely and waiting for his beloved one
Time passes and no one's coming to shore
Now yearning and longing he takes the offer
The sea is seducing and promising more

"Sleep now my love
Let the soft waves carry you
Float in silently and fall asleep"

Come now follow... follow me into the sea!
Come now follow...
Come follow and I will sing you into soothing sleep
Come now follow... hear the Sea singing!
Come now follow...
He's willingly changing into the ocean's young groom

He's looking at the sea, the rain is raging
His heart is lamenting, clouded by tears
Longing for loving he hurls himself to depths
Not seeing the white sails coming to shore

"Sleep now my love
Let the soft waves carry you
Float in silently and fall asleep"

Come now follow... follow me into the sea!
Come now follow...
Come follow and I will sing you into soothing sleep
Come now follow... hear the Sea singing!
Come now follow...
He's willingly changing into the ocean's young groom




3. ARCTICA

In the genesis of the world
Just the arctic wind was blowing
Something came into paradise
The everlasting snow melted away

Arctica!
You start to think there is something greater than humankind
Arctica!
The world is crying and the streams are telling how things went wrong

Sorrow and worry of humankind
Sad stories to find
The world is growing ice again
Covering the faults of the human race!

Arctica!
You start to think there is something greater than humankind
Arctica!
The world is crying and the streams
Are telling how things went wrong




4. GHOSTLY ECHOES

Touching these walls I am feeling
How madness is growing in me
I'm hearing these voices and I realise
This house is inside my mind

In the garden of this broken court
I am walking through and through these open doors
And I'm following the voice in a dream state
Following these calls from behind time

The ghostly echoes... of cries and sobs...
I'm sedated by sighs, have constant fear on my mind
The ghostly echoes... of whispers and moan...
The wind is throwing dry autumn leaves
On my dream path through the trees

Deluded and weak I'm feeling
Breathing walls against my palm
Changing into something hostile and bad
This court is overpowering me

In the garden of this broken court
I am walking through and through these open doors
And I'm following the voice in a dream state
Following these calls from behind time

The ghostly echoes... of cries and sobs...
I'm sedated by sighs, have constant fear on my mind
The ghostly echoes... of whispers and moan...
The wind is throwing dry autumn leaves
On my dream path through the trees

I'm wide awake but I'm dreaming
Voices are calling for me
Floting through hollow halls
In between the lines of madness and sanity

In the garden of this broken court
I am walking through and through these open doors
And I'm following the voice in a dream state
Following these calls from behind time

The ghostly echoes... of cries and sobs...
-I'm sedated by sighs, have constant fear on my mind
The ghostly echoes... of whispers and moan...
The wind is throwing dry autumn leaves
On my dream path through the trees




5. SAMPO

The old and evil witch of the lightless Northland
She asked the skilful blacksmith
To forge the wondrous Sampo, the lid in many colors
The mighty mill to make good fortune to its holder

The master of the forge and smithy
Forges for her the lid in colors
Mixes together certain metals
See the fire now burn in his eyes!
The blacksmith of Pohjola
Sees the magic Sampo rising
Yet he has not the bride of beauty
See the fire now burn in his eyes!

And he hammers for her the lid in many colors
Rising from the fire
To have her fairest daughter as a trade-off
To be his wife and queen forever and ever

The master of the forge and smithy
Forges for her the lid in colors
Mixes together certain metals
See the fire now burn in his eyes!
The blacksmith of Pohjola
Sees the magic Sampo rising
Yet he has not the bride of beauty
See the fire now burn in his eyes!




6. BLACKBIRD

With a hollow gaze
The bird looked deep into my eyes
I saw sadness
Followed the blackbird into the woods

"I am the ghost of the child without a name
I sing out my tune - a song from my tomb"

"Cry in the midst of the woods is mine
A hapless mother took my life
No sacred ground to lay in rest
In the shape of a bird I escort your way"
Cruel is the fate of that child

The blackbird standeth on a branch
And from the shadows of the forest
Flew ten blackbirds
Gazing at me with their gleaming eyes
Following my path through the woods
Sad were their eyes, in undeserved doom

"Cry in the midst of the woods is mine
A hapless mother took my life
No sacred ground to lay in rest
In the shape of a bird I escort your way"
Cruel is the fate of that child




7. FIELD OF SERPENTS

Forge thyself a golden plowshare
Forge the beam and mail of silver
And then with ease
Thou can plow the field of serpents
Plow the field of hissing vipers
Plow the soul of evil Hisi!

I'll hunt thine ancient mother of evil
O hissing serpent
Vilest thing of god's create!
Syöjätär, ancient mother, thy creator
This is thine origin!

Serpents there of every species
Lempo furrowed it with the white horses
And his plowshare!
With a beam of flaming iron!
Never since has a northern hero
Brought this field to cultivation

I'll hunt thine ancient mother of evil
O hissing serpent
Vilest thing of god's create!
Syöjätär, ancient mother, thy creator
This is thine origin!

Get thee hence, thou loathsome monster
Clear the pathway of this hero!

I'll hunt thine ancient mother of evil
Hunt thine origin, o hissing serpent
Vilest thing of god's create!
Syöjätär, ancient mother, thy creator
This is thine origin!




8. CITY OF CORRUPTION

Mother Earth gave the people
All they ever needed, wanted
They got a paradise to live in
Eden thrived and prospered
Life was simple, nature valued
Earth was giving, the people willing
Nothing was missing from human
Generous was Mother Earth

In the weak mind of Man jealousy, gluttony took over
And all that they wanted was to own more
Eden was violated - the vicious, corrupted city
Was swallowed up by the sea and disappered!

Mother Earth she looked at Eden
The exploited land, vicious Man
Took no pity for the city
Enforced a demise to the land!
She roused the seas to rush to shores
Swallow all in Eden's doors
The ingrate people and their city
Taking for granted everything!

In the weak mind of Man jealousy, gluttony took over
And all that they wanted was to own more
Eden was violated - the vicious, corrupted city
Was swallowed up by the sea and disappered!




9. VIRVATULEN LAULU

Kun taakse jää päivä, hiljaa raskaasti hengähdän
Kaipuuni saa, leudot tuulet nuo
Kutsun vievät sun luo
Illan tullen palajan, onneni mun täällä luonasi sun
Sieluni pois halajaa, kanssasi lähteä voisin

Tule, tule, tule luokseni! Armahin oi
Koht' saapuvi koi. Tule, tule, tule luokseni!

Virvatulten loimu yllä hiljaisuuden hetkyellä
Ole siinä vierelläni
Kunnes koittaa aamun koi
Päivää saa

Tyhjyyden taa ilman sua valossa vaellan
Muistosi saa minut kaipaamaan
Yöhön varjojen taa
Yö on aikaa armahin
Aamu luo kasteen hopeisen
Soiden yllä leijailen, tartu nyt kätteni loistoon!

Tule, tule, tule luokseni! Armahin oi
Koht' saapuvi koi. Tule, tule, tule luokseni!

Virvatulten loimu yllä hiljaisuuden hetkyellä
Ole siinä vierelläni
Kunnes koittaa aamun koi
Päivää saa




10. WAR IN HEAVEN

After God created man he called for the angels
To fly down on Earth and bow before his creation
Driven by his pride this angel made his plans
Against God and all the angel's force
Gathered his own army of the fallen angels
To strive for the highest seat of God!

God and his angel forces
Encountered the power of fallen angel army
And a war arose in heaven
Michael and his angels fought the dragon!
No longer place in heaven,
He was thrown down to Earth with all his angels
Misusing the free will of the mind
He signed himself a place in Hell!

Sataniel:
I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!

Sataniel being one of the highest Archangels
Found it too humbling by far, refused to obey
In the third heaven the harmony of angels
Was disturbed by a deceiver
Who convinced some angels to join him
And he seduced Eve from the shelter of God!

God and his angel forces
Encountered the power of fallen angel army
And a war arose in heaven
Michael and his angels fought the dragon!
No longer place in heaven,
He was thrown down to Earth with all his angels
Misusing the free will of the mind
He signed himself a place in Hell!

Sataniel:
I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!
I won't yield before a man!
