Journey of Souls tracks

Lyrics

01 - the last frontier

out of the ashes, risen once again
the last of the fallen, will not die in vain
invincible armies, made from steel and hate
escape on the wings of fate

the storm is here
we will show no fear
we will lead the way
across the last frontier

hunting a legend, flee from star to star
relentless raiders strike out from afar
resurrecting nemesis behold
prophecy will unfold

the storm is here
we will show no fear
we will lead the way
across the last frontier

for the lost we have to find
for all we left behind
for all of mankind
for the hope that sleeps within
for all that could have been
for the last of our kin

the storm is here
we will show no fear
we will lead the way
across the last frontier




02 - lords of polaris

we master the elements
our breath is the winter wind
we harness the seven seas
we're keepers of the mariner's dreams

to the north
in the land beneath the darkened sky
we are gods of the winter
and a speck of light
ever night
in cathedrals woman, man and child
speak our name
we are lords of polaris

bleak gale, midwinter's storm
our duty keeps us warm
we serve the frozen sun
unmoving, eternal one

to the north
in the land beneath the darkened sky
we are gods of the winter
and a speck of light
ever night
in cathedrals woman, man and child
speak our name
we are lords of polaris

under domes of ice, frozen city lights
this is our dominion
rivers here don't flow, every change is slow
in the land of polaris

to the north
in the land beneath the darkened sky
we are gods of the winter
and a speck of light
ever night
in cathedrals woman, man and child
speak our name
we are lords of polaris





03 - reaper

I can hear your voice, echo from afar
every word you sing, treasured in my heart
and at night when you go to rest
the chill in the air is me
I'm here

here for you

now I lay you down to sleep
pray that i your soul will keep
don't be afraid, only death divides us

it has been so long, watching from afar
every day alone, you know it breaks my heart
so this night will be your last
your last alone
the ghost on the wind is me
I'm here

here for you

now I lay you down to sleep
pray that i your soul will keep
don't be afraid, only death divides us

you will die before you wake
pray that I your soul will take
don't be afraid, only death unites us





04 - the ghost of icarus

the birth of legend so long ago
now holds the truth for those of us who know

he spread his wings, to face his god

now as the sunlight is burning my face
throwing my mind out of time, out of place
traitor to the human race
I have to try
the ghost of icarus behind my eyes

the freezing end so close at hand
we have one shot for the future of man

we spread our wings, to face our god

now as the sunlight is burning my face
throwing my mind out of time, out of place
traitor to the human race
i have to try
the ghost of icarus behind my eyes

i spread my wings, to face my god

now as the sunlight is burning my face
throwing my mind out of time, out of place
traitor to the human race
I had to try
the ghost of icarus behind my eyes





05 - memento mori

awoke to the sound of the dripping of water
the wailing of shells far away
I sat up and listened, I rose and got ready
to greet the last day of my life

far away, I can hear your prayer
and i know it means goodbye
far away, nothing I can say
on the last day of my life

all of the day, all the waiting
it drives me insane
don't want to go, don't want to stay
to find my fate
stuttering guns drawing ever nearer
faster the pounding of my heart in fear

far away, I can hear your prayer
and i know it means goodbye
far away, nothing i can say
on the last day of my life

standing in line, side by side
all awaiting our doom
the whistle blows
now the trenches will soon become tombs
no more than men, we are not immortal
no more than them, on the field we are equal

far away, I can hear your prayer
and i know it means goodbye
far away, nothing i can say
on the last day of my life

far away, I can hear your prayer
and i know it means goodbye
stay with me, safe as i can be
on the last day of my life

then there is nothing but the sound of silence
it feels like I'm falling asleep
I know you can't hear me
but you will remember
this was the last day of my life





06 - vinland

to the land beyond the sea
on a journey under stars, you follow me
so behold your deepest dream
land beyond the sea, and life eternally

to be first of men
to be pioneers
no more words without meaning
to be setting sail
for the open seas
ever hoping and dreaming

land beyond the sea
life eternally
it's our destiny
immortality

to discover worlds
to be lords of lands
on the far side of oceans
to be among gods
for eternity
to inspire generations

to the land beyond the sea
on a journey under stars, you follow me
so behold your deepest dream
land beyond the sea, and life eternally





07 - the devil in me

I don't like the way you smile
I don't like to say goodbye
I don't like the words you say to me
I don't like the way you cry
I don't like the way you talk to me
I would like to be alone

fallen angels, I have kept my word
and yet here you stand among the damned
keep your promise and obey my command
we won't wash this blood off from your hands

would you like to play a game?
do you think that I'm insane?
it's a question of mortality
I will never be the same
oh my god, they are still hurting me
in my darkness all alone

fallen angels, I have kept my word
and yet here you stand among the damned
keep your promise and obey my command
we won't wash this blood off from your hands

you put the devil in me
you put the devil in me

fallen angels, I have kept my word
and yet here you stand among the damned
keep your promise and obey my command
we won't wash this blood off from your hands




08 - hyperion

I saw him in a dream so real
I heard my future calling me

from ash to ash
come the fall of all we know
from dust to dust
as we watch the heavens glow

we all serve the lord of pain
now the world will change again
in atonement we will be
to the end of history

from far away, across the stars
I heard the spirits calling me

from fall to rise
the shaping of another world
shadow to light
as we watch the heavens burn

we all serve the lord of pain
now the world will change again
in atonement we will be
to the end of history

on hyperion we find
final fate of human kind
and when all we know is gone
may our lord help us move on





09 - god of war

god of war, god of war
god of war, god of war

beneath a veil of red
an entire world is lying dead
it's buried deep below
man must never know
man must never wake the sleeping god again

beneath the sands of mars
fell to rest at last, lost among the stars
the dark spiritual curse
death of the universe
what once was must never come to life again

god of war, god of war
god of war, god of war

god of war, god of war
god of war, god of war

the secret must remain
I will seal the tomb and endure the pain
so I have lived in vain
all my children slain
may I never see the light of day again





10 - starchildren

life, arise
exceed existence with burning eyes
believe, break free
illusions of boundries and mortality
into eternity

you are not alone, you are not alone

forever in this life, we sail the sea of stars
we ride the winds of light, across the cosmic night

my mind, blazing bright
eternal life in frozen lattices of light
I feel, I see
order in chaos and destiny
into eternity

you are not alone, you are not alone

forever in this life, we sail the sea of stars
we ride the winds of light, across the cosmic night

firstborn, first free
freed from matter, beyond all life
into eternity

you are not alone...you are not alone

forever in this life, we sail the sea of stars
we ride the winds of light, across the cosmic night





11 - dreamcatcher

deep in the night
restless, I feel my mind wander
caught in the light
drifting to find what's beyond here

I'm feeling scared
something is whispering to me
something out there
lost in a world that i can't see

all my life I've been crossing borders
transcending time and again
in my dreams i can see the future
a journey of souls to the end

it opens up
a window to something that i believe
it rushes in
emotion, the knowledge, the certainty

all my life I've been crossing borders
transcending time and again
in my dreams i can see the future
a journey of souls to the end

all my life I've been running away
hiding from hurt and from pain
in my dreams I can shape the future
a journey of souls to the end
