Lyrics

1. In Excelsis / Nova Era

Somehow I know
The things are gonna change
New boundaries on the way
Like never before
Find a meaning to your life
Healing whispers of the angels
Bring the sunrise again

New day shines, fallen angels will arise
Nova Era brings the ashes back to life
All over now, sores in pain and awful lies
Angels will arise
Back to life!

Fresh winds of hope
Has taken us ahead
Forever is a place
You have to keep in mind
No way to limit our goals
You'll find a reason to believe
Facing Nova Era

[Chorus]

Oh! Come on! Arise!

Find a meaning to your life
No way to limit our goals
Healing whispers of the angels
Bring the sunrise again!

New day shines, fallen angels will arise
Nova Era brings the ashes back to life
All over now, sores in pain and awful lies
Angels lead you through paradise

Nova Era is a passage to your mind
And forever you may find a better time
Nova Era bring the angels back to life... Life!




2. Acid Rain

When the world had a tragic fate
We were draining the poisoned sea
Though the scenes were indeed too sad
Only prayers were taking lead

Oh! Just some of us survived
At least a discent woman and a man
Wide awake! Am I alone in this place
Someone hear me ? my only hope!

The Acid Rain is burning
Right into your eyes
Again your dreams may loose the glow
Allow the sorrow of your thougths to meet sunrise
And shall the hopefull words
Bring love inside your heart

So the world knew a tragic fate
We were draining the deadly sea
And the scenes were indeed too sad
Only prayers were taking lead

The Acid Rain is burning your eyes!




3. Angels Cry

Cry in the night of the angel
For their light will never shine
With their hearts so full of sorrow
Muddy waters all around
The curtain falls for helpless souls
How they suffer swept aside
And the raging streams are flowing
with so little hope inside

(Is like)
Angels crying
Can't take no more
Angels dying
Capture their fall

Try to see this misery
your future is not what you wished it to be
So try to fly, the answer lies
in the angry darkened skies
(angry darkened skies)

You just keep on standing in these fields all your life
You sow the seeds that never grow
No harvest comes such a strain to feed the few
Still you're waiting, it's in vain...
The change must come right now!

Oh, see the sun in the sky
(From the dawn of destruction)
Free, free this chain from my heart...
(chain, chain, chain)
Hear the cry of angels
from this life you cannot hide
The change may come tomorrow
for the solemn weeping eyes

(Like)
Angels crying
Can't take no more
Angels dying
Capture their fall

Try to see this misery
your future is not what you wished it to be
So try to fly, the answer lies
in the angry darkened skies
(angry darkened skies)

You just keep on standing in these fields all your life
You sow the seeds that never grow
No harvest comes such a strain to feed the few
Still you're waiting, it's in vain...
The change must come right now!

Angels are crying and dying
There must be some way
endless you stray, still you pray for a better life
Nobody sees when a glimpse
of your target lies behind you,
Like steps of the pilgrims unshined!




4. Heroes Of Sand

Sealing light
Nothing to see
Like a miracle life
Starts with the pain
Forever this will be

Close my eyes
Thunders won't cease
Crawling down to the edge
I break down and weep
Tears on the river deep
Oh! Back to the sea

Shout loud
Moving ahead
Ride the horses of justice
Virtues of men, yawns!

Down and out
Losing my head
Like a dream you're returning
Back from the dead-awake!
Shadows will fade some day
All the heroes go down
Shed their blood on the land
Dreaming somehow
The divine will now stand
Heroes go down
With their hearts in their hands
Building their castles on the sand

Haunted by the heavy clouds
Thunder scaring away
Howling like a mountain wolf
Warriors are leading the way




5. Metal Icarus

You live in a world that is just
Way too strange to conceive
Angel's dressed in black
Most of the people who seem to be
Lost in the dark
- Are they alll too real?

Always a good time, never lonely
Suddenly realized the blood
red tears from my eyes
There was nothing much
I could do
But watch you die

Time after time
Burnt your wings on the sun
Metal Icarus

First time I met you wanted
To be by your side
And let my hair grow long
Those days are gone
But I still fly by night
Bringing life to the dead

Even through times
when I felt lonely
Suddenly realized the blood
red tears from my eyes
There was nothing much I could do
But watch you die

Time after time
Burnt your wings on the sun
Metal Icarus
Night after night
Upon forced unknown
Metal Icarus

Ah! Those were the years
I can still feel the windy heights
Against my skin
Andif I close my eyes
And if I close my eyes
I'm flying over hills!




6. Millenium Sun

An eagle breaks the silence
And overflies the field
My eyes will try to follow
Till it vanishes away

Like candles in the darkness
We fight against the wind
Devotion to your idols
Soon will overthrow the king

Out of order
Taming borders
Tearing down the fences
On and on and after all
The century has gone
Racism jumble
Turbulence
My eyes believe we have gone to the end

Ordinary Earth
Sailing throught the space

Population alienation
Losing all affection
Calling on to heaven's hope
To watch for my protection
Out of luck
Potential stuck
Remote controlled
By the T.V. again

Carries human souls
Lead us the journey of our fate
So come millennium sun
Won't you show us the way
Future's begun
So words from my mouth come
Whispering for your return

Pictures a sunset on the lake
Mirrors of crystal your portrait
Walking on this field while I wait

So come millennium sun
Won't you show us the way
Future's begun
So words come from my mouth
Whispering for your return
Show us the future's began
Burning millennium sun




7. Make Believe

Sat beside the meadow
Watching weeds agrow
Cleaned up all the ashes
Of my soul

Wrote down my own sentence
Now you take your way
Fades the last remembrance
Of your lovely pretty face

I, after all,
Just a lonely man - a lonely heart!

Working on the future
Floating on fate
Faced the circunstances
Cleared up the shades, so

Make believe
There's no sorrow in your eyes
Can't you see
We could never get back from the start
Minutes waiting, life's been wasted
... maybe I wanna die some other day
Hear the whispers of your hope
The answer wasn't told
No, don't laugh seeing me cry
The end I've left behind
(... the whispers of your hope are left behind!)

Make believe
There's no sorrow in your eyes
Can't you see
We could never get back from the start
Minutes waiting, life's been wasted

And I've tried,
Maybe you deny
Words of peace
For the future of our lives
Bring to me
Something else than a broken heart
I won't wait 'till my life is wasted
... maybe I wanna die some other day




8. Drum Solo

[Instrumental]




9. Unholy Wars

A lethal bolt pierces the air
Like a falling star
Young eyes are observing in the darkness
His stare's reflecting fright
And scared he's struggling hard
To go back

Uneasy warders guard
The jail on quiet nights
Young eyes contemplating somewhere to hide
Mankind will soon learn
That the end has come in time

Dividing lands, retracing
All the borders will colide
Revealing ages when the absence
Of forgiveness rules our lives

Home how I go
My badge is wearing out
Written on the sand
Words to reconcile - unholy wars

Forgive us our father
For we have sinned
Blinded by pride
We know not what we do
Thy kingdom will be done
By holy wars

The battle is over
But the war still rages on!
Bridge

[Chorus]




10. Rebirth

Cooling breeze from a summer day
Hearing echoes from your heart
Learning how to recompose the words
Let time just fly

Joyfull sea-gulls roaming on the shore
Not a single note would sound
Raise my head after I dry my face
Let time just fly

Recalling, retreating
Returning, retreaving
A small talk your missing
More clever but older now

A leader, a learner
A lawful beginer
A lodger of lunacy
So lucid in a jungle
A helper, a sinner
A scarecroow's agonyzing smile

Oh! Minutes go round and round
Inside my head
Oh! My chest will now explode
Falling into pieces
Rain breaks on the ground-blood!

One minute forever
A sinner regreting
My vulgar misery ends

(And I) ride the winds of a brand new day
High where mountain's stand
Found my hope and pride again
Rebirth of a man

Time to fly...




11. Time

This time I wanna know what life means...
... to live it again
I'm looking forward, feel the light shine in my eyes
And now I know, my instincts were not wrong
And many things can be done
I don't believe now
That I'm dreaming alone

Oh, we're searching for the love
that everyone's got, but can't see
Oh, beyond the flesh and blood
there's so much hidden behind
as so much more we've gotta give...

Sanity brings up the sadness
that keeps your illusions locked in a little box
Fright comes, you find yourself lonely
in a cage of conclusions crowding your mind
You sit back bowing your head
Every answer - yes
Why don't you trust me and shed out your fears,
Running over the tears you've contained
now cover up your eyes
- Is it good for you?

I will be here when fire burns!

Welcome on board
over here is the ship of your life
So rotten that will cast away
I'll be your sweet lullaby all the night
And if you get lost you can hold my hand...

And I'll be here when fire burns
(Inside your heart)
Climb up the hills and mountains,
don't forget what you've learned!

Life makes us feel the time we cannot hold
Time makes us live a tale already told
Time makes us heal a feeling inside
a feeling that lies in our heart
that we stole away...

And I'll be here when fire burns
(Inside your heart)
Climb up the hills and mountains,
don't forget what you've learned!

Life makes us feel (life makes us feel)
The time we cannot hold
Time makes us live (time makes us live)
A tale already told
Time makes us heal (time makes us heal)
A feeling inside
a feeling that lies in our heart
that we stole away...




12. Running Alone

When the brave fought
On the land of freedom for the men
Now the bells of hope are ringing
Angels cry again

The goddess of wind was mad, oh no!
Spreading the fire
Rushing our destiny (and) from now
Dividing us all.
Visions of steady land
Cheering the sight
Orders to wait until the night

Answer me,
What happned to your life?
Answer me, what do you hide?

The storm made us angry, I don't know!
Spreading the fear
Old friends like enemys, be strong!
And hide all your tears
Revolting the high command
Don't let it drown
Captain took off before the dawn.

Answer me,
What happened to your life?
Answer me, what do you hide?
Can't you see
Salvation without fight?
Can't you see it?
That you are blind

Under the sun
In a solitary world
I am running alone
Scars on my face
Weary hands from digging dirt
I was dying all alone

Am running?
Where am I?
Where has everyone gone this time?
Left my future far behind
I am nothing but the sole survivor

Under the sun I still see this world burning
Scars on my face shows the eyes of a man running




13. Crossing / Nothing To Say

Long ago, the same sky above;
"It's lonesome when the sun goes down"
A day had come when we were like one:
- Weapons up, never surrender!

Oh, I saw the gleams of gold
We'd kill and die conquering a virgin world
The hold corrupted by the honour

Living forevermore, leaving today
Back to my place, I've got
Nothing to say!

Guilt and shame, it's all so insane
Pagan gods die with no defence
And we could go no further at all
Digging the graves of our conscience

Oh, the sounds, they still echoe
All of us drifting on seas of blood
The hope hidden behind the horror

Living forevermore, leaving today
Back from this land, I've got
Nothing to say!
Living forevermore, leaving today;
For all what remains I've got
Nothing to say!

Oh, how many years have gone
Every morning I bare myself from love
The love rising up from the sorrow

Living forevermore, leaving today
For all what remains I've got
Nothing to say!

Living forevermore - Nothing to say!
Back to my place, I've got...
Living forevermore - Nothing to say!
For all what remains, I've got
Nothing to say!




14. Unfinished Allegro

[Instrumental]




15. Carry On

Simple minded brain,
for now you succumb
Nothing changes your way
This worlds insists to be the same
based on our mistakes
The flowers fade along the road
Don't blindfold your eyes,
so loneliness becomes the law of a senseless life

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are on your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride to get there...
Go!

Now we have to face another day
You won't be alone
This life is forcing us to stay
- For how long?
Cold is the wind and thunder struck on a stormy night
But can't you see, I'm by your side
We are marching on!

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are on your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride to get there...

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past, to carry on

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are on your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride to get there...

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past

Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past, to carry on
The remains from the past, to carry on
The remains from the past...




16. The Number Of The Beast

[Cover from Iron Maiden]

I left alone, my mind was blank.
I needed time to get the memories from my mind.

What did I see, can i believe,
That what I saw last night was real and not just fantasy.

Just what I saw, in my old dreams,
Were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me.

'Cause in my dreams, it's always there,
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair.

The night was black, was no use holding back,
'Cause I had to see, was someone watching me.
In the mist, dark figures move and twist,
Was all this for real, or just some kind of hell.
666 the number of the beast.
Hell and fire was spawned to be released.

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised,
As they start to cry, hands held to the sky.
In the night, the fires burning bright,
The ritual has begun, Satan's work is done.
666 the number of the beast.
Sacrifice is going on tonight.

This can't go on, I must inform the law.
Can this still be real or just some crazy dream.
But I feel drawn towards the chanting hordes,
They seem to mesmerize...can't avoid their eyes,
666 the number of the beast.
666 the one for you and me.

I'm coming back, I will return,
And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn.
I have the fire, I have the force.
I have the power to make my evil take it's course.
