Lyrics

1. VALKYRIES

Ravens over battlefield are marking the chosen
Brave northern warriors to their last fight.

Shieldmaidens ride the wolves in the sky with ravens
Scouting the battleground for souls of slain heroes.

Choosers of slain.

Valkyries ride through the night sky
Singing fierce battle-cries,
Valkyries, choosers of slain, come ride their wolves!

Howling wolves in the night carrying female deities
Escort the dead warriors to odin's hall.

Armour of valkyries flashes up over the skies
Shading a strange light, the northern lights!

Choosers of slain.

Valkyries ride through the night sky
Singing fierce battle-cries,
Valkyries, choosers of slain, come ride their wolves!




2. INCUBUS

Preacher:
"Its not a dream, and it's not your imagination."

I'm lying in my bedroom restless at nights
And feeling someone lying next to my side
I hear a heavy breathing
Someone next to me and watching me!

Incubus: Sweet dreams now come to me, your fresh is weak!

I sense and know its presence yet I'm asleep!
Someone is preying upon my sleeping mind!
Whispering, calling, desiring
And squeezing with all its might
It's trying to take over me and choke me!

A nightmare seizes me in a freezing grip
I feel cold fingers running, taking a grip.
This spirit's lurking in my sleep
And giving in I'll sleep for ever more!

Incubus: Sweet dreams now come to me, your fresh is weak!

I sense and know its presence yet I'm asleep!
Someone is preying upon my sleeping mind!
Whispering, calling, desiring
And squeezing with all its might
It's trying to take over me and choke me!

Preacher: The flesh is weak!
Walk in the Spirit,
And ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh!

I sense and know its presence yet I'm asleep!
Someone is preying upon my sleeping mind!
Whispering, calling, desiring
And squeezing with all its might
It's trying to take over me and choke me!




3. KOKKO - EAGLE OF FIRE

Fire has left Väinölä's hearth stones
Light has gone
Dark nights no light under the sky
Hard to find the Fire-child

Eagle of fire with fiery feathers
Made a spark
Ukko made the Kokko's spark
Kindle as a fire

Fly into the night bring back the light
That left the hearth stones
Find the light Eagle of fire
Fly through skies, let there be light!

Dark skies ablazed with fire when
Kokko flew across the Heavens
After the child, the child of fire
Floating through the vaults of ether.

Ether maidens cradled the fire child
In starry skies
Slipped through the hands of lady Ether
Escaped from silver cradle

Low descends the dome og heaven
Upon, under
On the edge of the ether
The clouds of Northland thunder

Fly into the night bring back the light
That left the hearth stones
Find the light Eagle of fire
Fly through skies, let there be light!

Dark skies ablazed with fire when
Kokko flew across the Heavens
After the child, the child of fire
Floating through the vaults of ether.




4. LILY OF THE MOON

An indian girl,
She watched the moon and lived in the stories
About the warrior of the moon who was a mighty god.
In the nights she tried to catch
The light rays from the moon
In order to hold her warrior-god
Whom she just loved so much.

She say a reflection of the moon in a lake.

[Chorus]
Blinded by her love, she ran into the lake.
Fearlessly she swam never to catch the rays.
The shining of the moon just shimmered in her eyes
Just before she fell into the eternal dark.

The warrior of the moon, he grieved for indian girl who had
Devoted her life to loving him, who sacrificed herself.
The warrior-god changed her into a lily of the moon,
A watery plant whose large flowers open during the night.

See the lily opening herself towards the moon.

[Chorus] (x2)




5. 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




6. CRIMSON FLOWER

Once upon a time in a distand land,
A merchant had three daughters.
They asked different gifts from their old father:
A golden crown, a crystal mirror and the last one,
A little scarlet flower.

[Chorus]
The crimson flower is hard to find
A magical forest keeps it inside.
If he picks it then the beast will take the daughter.
The crimson flower lies there within
So does the heart of the beast and deep
In his mind he fears that no one will break the spell.

Then the old man's youngest daughter
Went alone into the forest
And she found the castle where she would stay eternally
There in time she fell in love with her silent keeper.

[Chorus] (x2)




7. CIRCUS BLACK

Day and night, no matter where you go
They hold the mirror
For you to swallow
And there they are staring at you everywhere you go!

[Chorus]
They are in your head, you are overpowered,
They are there like worms eating your guts.
Can you stop the Clocks? Tick, tick, tock, in your ears?
Stop the spinning of the psycho circus in my mind!

They are the voice of the conscience,
The voice of attrition,
Whispers in your prison.
They are there all the time
Until you find expiation of your evil deeds!

[Chorus] (x2)




8. LOST SOUL

Leaving his dreams and family
Leaving the life behind
Searching his will and
Searching his hope
Searching the peace of mind

Off to the valley
Off to the shore
Of to the seven seas
Wandering man and
Wandering soul
Wander in land of dreams

Now long and dark is the road
And heavy is the load
And you're about to fall
Into emptiness, your
Eyes are losing the light!

Take me into your arms
Take away
Take me with thee and flee.
Calm restless heart and
Calm sirens call
Calm me before I fall!

Aching in me and
Ache in my veins
Ache from the venom sweet.
Forgive me my love
I'm already lost,
No more for you to keep.

Now long and dark is the road
And heavy is the load
And you're about to fall
Into emptiness, your
Eyes are losing the light!




9. COLD KISS

Far away is the dawn from your eyes, only darkness.
... Only darkness I see in your eyes.
Fearlessy I'm leaning on you in the shadows, in your world.
And there you find me, my mind is open for your mind.
Meet the night!

[Chorus]
Loving your lifeless soul is all to easy.
Still in your lifeless heart there is some beating!
Love your living soul is just too easy.
The power of love beats death, come and join eternity.
Cold kiss!

Show me how is the world from your eyes 'cause I'm envious
... 'cause I'm envious of your afterlife.
Just one kiss will release me from life
I know you want it too, I feel you do!
You know I'm longing, you know I want tot take you to live with the moon!

[Chorus] (x2)




10. RIVER OF TUONI

Along the black death-land river
The mother runs and tries to find her son
Searching for her lost hero she wades the river deep
To her belt in mud

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!

Fear in her heart she calls her son,
As she rakes the Tuoni river and sees the black swan

Now she wades the river deeper to deathlands shoals and shallows
And finds her son

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!

Oh! Heavy-hearted am I
Tuoni has taken my son!




11. CHARNEL'S BALL

When the night's slowly falling, shadows grow
Longer in the cold moonlight,
The nightbirds are singing their sad tunes - then the
Time has come for the Charnel's ball.

[Chorus]
White bones in the moonlight
Dressed up also in white
Dancing upon their own tombs
Waltzing accross the
Graveyard is
Filled with joy
Corpses are looking like toys
Undead girls and boys
Dance in the Carnel's ball!

You're asleep and you don't hear a thing, then the
Dead are crawling out of their tombs.
We think death is for eternity but midnight welcomes
The dead to dance.

... Undead girls and boys
Dancing and swaying!

... Undead girls and boys
Dance in the Carnel's ball!
