Lyrics

1. DRAGON REBORN

Have you no reason no other way
Blinded you follow on paths that have strayed
How had you been chosen to hold the seal?
Not knowing whether there will be glory or gold
It's just a vision the masters were told
The journey will be long
Let it begin

Don't rest now by the willow
Where you've inscribed your name
It may be the last time your eyes will see home

As you were summoned you would have been warned
Never the lion's mark was to be shown
Hiding in shadows yearning for light
This toll that you bare may be paid with your life
Still you will walk on the edge of a knife
In stealth you travel on
Still your heart is true

Don't give into temptation
Never falter in thought
The darkness is drawing you in out of hate not love
Guardians of the great tower they are lighting your way
Be swift on the journey
Let Godspeed prevail

As you venture your way to find the eye of Ra
Hurry now fate awaits to bring the second rise
As a stone makes its mark where it falls
Deny the seventh throne
So as legends have told you will uprise
The dragon reborn

You have conquered temptation
As you headed the call
You realize the talisman's power is stronger than ever you thought
Watchers of the great tower they stand proud of their choice
You'll walk with the righteous
A path that is true

As he walks through the valley of death he shall fear no evil
Into the eye of Ra

There's a spirit that guides you within the second rise
As a stone makes its mark where it falls
Deny the seventh throne
Now in legends recalled you are the one the dragon reborn
The spirit that guides you
The father of all
In a kingdom of stone
You're the dragon reborn




2. SILENT COMPANY

We all try hard to find our faith
But circumstances choose our paths
What awaits us will stand at the end of the road
So we work to buy our time
We watch our children as they strive
Still not understanding what is passing us by

If it's free I want to be like a sail set out to sea
Set a course never returning back to the shores

Our time will come and will surely pass us by
What remains are only memories worth remembering
Silent company observant they rest and they wait
For our life an end to arrive

We're all content and satisfied
Whether there's truth within the lies
There's a purpose for every reason that comes our way
Never noticed to wonder why
Our eyes are open still we're blind
There's a fear in knowing what's on the other side

If it's free I want to be
Just like them I'll ride the breeze
Walk alone and knowing never alone we will be




3. SIX RIBBONS

Six Ribbons
If I were a minstrel, I'd sing you six love songs
to tell the whole world of the love that we shared

If I were a merchant, I'd bring you six diamonds
With six blood red roses, for my love to share

But I am a simple man, a poor common farmer
So take my six ribbons, to tie back your hair
Yellow and brown, blue as the sky, red as my blood, green as your eye.

If I were a nobleman
I'd bring you six carriages, with six snow white horses to take you anywhere

If I were the emperor
I'd build you six palaces with six hundred servants for comforting care

But I am a simple man a poor common farmer
So take my six ribbons to tie back your hair

If I where a minstrel
I'd sing you six love songs to tell the whole world of the love that we share
so don't afraid, my love,
You're never alone, love while you wear my ribbons tie'n back your hair

Once I was a simple man a poor common farmer I gave you six ribbons to tie back your hair

Tooralee, tooralie
All I can share is only six ribbons to tie back your hair

Tooralee, tooralie
All I can share is only six ribbons to tie back your hair




4. FIRESTORM

Now that the war is over I have returned to find myself
Things that I've said and things that I have done
Come like lead ricocheting off a steel wall

Lost in a dream reality a haunting song sings out a tune of sorrow
Never imagining what we once had lays buried beneath the sand
Buried beneath the land

Firestorm
You left us to fight on this holy land
Now alone
Eternally burnt in my mind is this firestorm

Clouds hanging low the bodies below are your children
They have died for your gain
Scared and confused you've lost what you found now you cry now you cry for mercy

Still in a dream reality a haunting song still rings this tune of sorrow
Never remembering what we once had lays buried beneath the sand
Buried beneath the land

Firestorm
You left us to fight on this holy land
Now alone
Eternally burnt in my mind
Firestorm
You left us to fight on this holy land
Now alone
Eternally burnt in my mind is this firestorm

Reality is not a dream no haunting tune to sing a song of sorrow
Always a memory what we once had
Lays buried beneath my sand
Buried my land




5. NEW HORIZONS

Softly immersed into this world
Silence broken by screams
Breathe in your first breath
Into damnation
Open your eyes and see the world
What have you seen that I have not seen?
Imagination expands
In the darkness there's madness confusion
That is all I recall

In time you may learn to understand
If you listen you may reach new horizons

So now it begins
Walking a tightrope watch out you may fall
Life's easy it seems
You must learn to stand before you walk
Now walk

Lucid in your thoughts
You begin to fall
Now hiding behind locked doors
Surrounding whispers holding you in fear
With open eyes now you see the world
Now that you've seen what I've always seen
Imagination recedes
Your mind is a desolate wasteland of madness




6. DARKENED ROOM

I've seen and heard it all before
Maybe not in this life
Familiarity arrives
It's like I've been there before
Images mirrored doors
Surfaced in my mind in these eyes
I'm staring through the stained glass walls

You're watching me fall I'm so distant that I may be small
Confusion betrays and hides in corners
So many out there more than I see

These shimmering lights hide visions
I must not refrain from dreaming
I like the screams of silence
They're somber in my cold and darkened room

These wounds may heal if I just rest
And sit here for awhile
Subliminal drifting into new horizons
This rising tide may not drown me
But surely it will try much harder now
And deeper than its ever been before

All that I know is so distant then I am not sure
Confusion may still betray me




7. VISIONARY

What would you say to a man if he had a vision
Of making this world a better place?

Gathering thoughts
Have been spoken by millions
Our dominions arrived

Well armed with his words
He has a vision as he tries to change the world

Would you mock him and curse him, hail him and praise
Even though if his words made no sense at all?
The madness you've seen throughout histories turn
Consequently they fall onto all mankind

Gathering thoughts
Have been spoken by millions
Our dominions arrived
Our dominions arrived

Well armed with his words
He has a vision as he tries to change the world
Are these just words that were written by visionary men?
They're only visions of a man




8. NEVER SURRENDER

All that I hear
Excuses and no reasons
So step aside
And lose yourself within yourself

Lose your mind, lose control
Don't forget don't lose your soul

I feel your pain
When consequences arrive
You're wasting my time
With all your sorrow bullshit

You wasted days, you wasted years
Most of all don't waste your life

Never surrender my belief
That it's you that once said
Your fortune in life is to live in this misery
There is a new dawn just for you
New dimensions there to say
Reality calls
It's time that you stop the fall

I couldn't see all the sorrow
And maybe there's no tomorrow
How will I know?

You tasted life, you took the ride
Now it's the time to take to flight




9. A BETTER WAY TO DIE

As the new day begins and her eyes have been burnt by the sun
There's a gathering watching her burn for what she has done
There is anger in their mouth for people to cry out its name
She's demonic diabolic can you not see her in her flames

Save yourself the preacher said
Come to meet your maker
See the reaper have his way

Now that your soul has been cast in the deepest of hell
They have burnt you, hung you and drowned you
I'd rather find a better way to go
There are many ways to die so this one is for you
I hope I find a better way to die

They're preparing the noose he's the killer, believer of pain
For the justice he must hang until his last breath will fade
Is that a smile that I see or the twitching of pain on his face?
As he's swinging and hanging the crowd walks away with relief

You're immersed deep in water your feet have been tied you've been anchored to drown
Only memories have surfaced reminding of what has been done
With this death you've been cleansed of the blood that you've split mercilessly
Your repayment by your kind is what you deserve honestly
