01. Out Of The Ruins

No one's got the power to defy the tyranny
One by one they all were gone
Far too many heroes came and went but never won
Everyone has lost his soul forever

They've opened a door
And whispered the spell that was written in stone
They've broken the seal
They word wasn't spoken, since 2.000 years

All heroes lost, the kingdom's gone
I feel the end, it must be done
Courageous I'm standing tall

Out of the ruins we rise forever
Into the battle - we march together
We are the ones, never lost our faith and our pride
Out of the ruins we rise forever
Into the battle we march together
It's written in stone , a new king will be born

And out of the shades
A creature is rising to engage the throne
The light disappeared
A warrior is screaming while fighting the demon

I feel the end, down on my knees
I pray to god, give me the will to carry on
I hear them come, the battle's near
I gonna die, is it all real or fantasy
Is it all real or fantasy?

We're a legion of defenders
Brave at heart and strong
And the flame of hope is with us
We will carry on


02. Thunder God

I can feel the fever rising
I can feel it in my veins
The time has come - welcome to the show

The crowd starts moving
The waves are surging high
The time is right - welcome to the show

I'm moving to the rhythm of the drums
Their heavy sounds are breaking through the night

Gods of thunder
Sword of fate
Storm, wind and fire
Sent to devastate
And the mighty gods of thunder
Are rumbling in the sky
It's the clash of powers
With boiling rage and anger

Here I'm standing in the silence
It's the calm before the storm
The world stands still - then hell is breaking loose

I can see the skies are burning
And rain breaks on the ground
It's night on earth - chaos all around

They're raging through the universe - break it down, break it down
Earth was an experiment - over now, over now


03. Tears Of Babylon

A stairway to the gods in heaven - out in the dust
A sign of hope for our redemption - forever lost

1000 dreamers, trust in the prophecies
Born in their fantasies

Babylon, Babylon
1000 nights in my world of dreams
1000 years in my memories

Outlawed by the revelations - calling you a shame
Accused of lust and fornication - you're the one to blame


04. Merlin - Legend Of The Past

From the isle of Avalon a virgin came
Oh she sealed his fate forever
He faced the hand of destiny, she was alone
Oh she sealed his fate forever

Run for your life
The empress is here, torture and fear
Run for your life
The beast has appeared, the end is near

Merlin, son of a fallen angel
Merlin, a legend of the past
Foretold the story of two dragons
Fighting for the land
His name will live forever

He was too wise he couldn't see, he felt for lies
Oh, the legend's gone forever
Then he was cursed no turning back, no way out
Oh, the legend's gone forever

Teacher of kings and wizard of (his) time -he's magic
A genius man he was one of a kind
Betrayed and deceived by the love of (his) life - so tragic
She was casting a spell and controlled his mind

Run for your life
The empress is here, torture and fear
Run for your life
The beast has appeared, the end is near

Merlin, son of a fallen angel
Merlin, a legend of the past
Foretold the story of two dragons
Fighting for the land
His name will live forever


05. Resurrection Day

Died in the past, swore to return
His spirit is free
He received what he earned
Survived all the times in the underworld
The tyrant is crowned
The oath fulfills tonight

In the past I lived, as a king I died
I built the tower to the universe
And my time will come, my resurrection day
I come back to free the world again

Back to the earth, back to the earth, I'm coming
I will return, I will return, I'm longing
Kingdom come!

On and on - I will free the world
I'm gonna bring back the light
And one day we'll be unity
Stand strong ! - I'll fight for our rights

Once I ruled the land, at the river banks
I built the temples of the ancient gods
I will never stop, I will never rest
Until I, until I find my peace at last

Back to the earth, back to the earth, I'm coming
I will return, I will return, I'm longing
Kingdom come!

On and on - I will free the world
I'm gonna bring back the light
And one day we'll be unity
Stand strong ! - I'll fight for our rights

Back to the earth, back to the earth
Time for rebirth, time for rebirth
Rescue the world, rescue the world
The flame of the kingdom still burns
Bridge 2:

The king returns
He's born to rule
He takes revenge
To free his mind


06. Under The Spell Of The Moon

Under the spell of the moon
Oh, I wonder, I forget
I hear the voices of darkness
I surrender, I give up

I'm chasing a dream, alone in the night
Glistening in the dark
I'm chasing a dream
Glistening in the dark

Under the spell of the moon
I'm dancing in the dark
I'm embracing the night
Into the shades of my doom
I let myself fall into the dark

I am a lonesome maroon
I'm abandoned, I'm insane
Under the black wings of darkness
I wander, I move on

I'm chasing a dream, alone in the night
Glistening in the dark
I'm chasing a dream
Glistening in the dark

Under the spell of the moon
I'm dancing in the dark
I'm embracing the night
Into the shades of my doom
I let myself fall into the dark


07. Dark Obsession

My secret dreamworld, it falls apart
A silent sorrow gets hold, is touching my heart
My inspiration, your genius art
Our strange relation has lost all it's charm

Love and passion are dead and gone
You've been my idol, the chosen one
Can I be free when I'm living on ?

In the still of the night
Dark obsession inside
It's the way to my last paradise
In the still of the night
My Dark obsession ignites
My oasis, my paradise

Always faithful, beyond all time
A strong desire was burning inside
My love is endless, it never dies
You gave a meaning to my curious life
You have denied me, you turned away

In the still of the night
Dark obsession inside
It's the way to my last paradise
In the still of the night
My Dark obsession ignites
My oasis, my paradise

In the still of the night
Dark obsession inside
In the still of the night
Dark obsession inside
In the still of the night
Dark obsession ignites

The time has come to take me home
Show me the way and lead me home


08. The Darkness

I'm crawling through the shadows of the underworld
I'm creeping like a creature through the dark
There's something moving slowly, down below
The beast is on the verge to take away my soul
I'm lost, I fall

Lust and strange desires
Screaming kills all my pain
Dust of raging fires
There comes the night again

Blasting pounds of thunder
Are shaking up the ground
Lost, I'm going under
And then the night is closing in

Come my guardian angel, come my guardian angel
Right to my side
I can hear the demons laughter, far through the night
The one who breaks the spell

The darkness, the darkness comes
The darkness, the darkness comes again

Flashing tongues of fire
Are slicing through the air
Clash, Fuck, I retire
Heat is rising everywhere

Crashing rays of lightning
Clouds of heavy rain
Lost, I'm going under
And then the night is closing in

All I need's a wonder, all I need's a wonder
Right by my side
You will see me going under, lost in the night
When all my power fails

The darkness, the darkness comes
The darkness, the darkness comes again

The Darkness comes, it comes
The devil on the throne
All I need's a wonder
Now, it comes

The darkness, the darkness comes
The darkness, the darkness comes again


09. Remember!

We are done and our hope is gone
We can hear the madman's laughter
Now we run, it cannot be undone
And now the deadly wave grows faster

Don't stop believing
Don't stop to walk
Keep on believing in the signs of fate

Somewhere, somehow
We find the key to the sense of the world
Somewhere, somehow
When we remember the first days of mankind again

We have failed, we sell off the world
No one knows, what's coming after
Now we yearn, and we get what we earn
And now the end will come with bluster

Don't stop believing
Don't stop to walk
Keep on believing in the signs of fate

Somewhere, somehow
We find the key to the sense of the world
Somewhere, somehow
When we remember the first days of mankind again


10. Ludwig II - Prologue

„Ich liege im Zeichen des Kreuzes, im Zeichen der Sonne und des Mondes. Verflucht sei ich und meine Ideale, wenn ich noch fallen sollte, Gott sei dank es ist nicht mehr möglich, denn es schützt mich Gottes heiliger Wille, des Königs erhabenes Wort!- Nur psychische Liebe allein ist gestattet, die sinnliche dagegen verflucht. Ich rufe feierlich Anathema über sie aus:
Du nahst als Gottgesandte, ich flog aus holder Fern, so fährst du in die Lande, wo ewig strahlt dein Stern" ( Ludwig II.)

Prolog:
Vergangen ist die alte Welt
Und verblaßt ihr Glanz
Ich warte unterm Sternenzelt
Auf meinen letzten Tanz
Komm süßer Tod umarme mich
Lass mich nicht allein
Aus dem Dunkel in das Licht
Komm und führ mich heim

Zeig mir die Macht, zeig mir dein Paradies
Gib mir die Kraft, welche mich einst verlies
Befrei mich, erlös mich von Kummer und Leid
Die Seele wird frei sein in Ewigkeit

Was heut geschehn muß, das wird heut geschehn
...ich werde dem Unheil widerstehn...


11. The Shadowking

Spellbound by the power of the devil
I'm running through the shadows of the night
I'm sensing he will take my soul forever
I'm praying to the guardian of my fate

Freedom now or never - Oh I'm going insane
Times have changed forever - free me forever

One more time I fly
Over the rainbow
One last time - no return
No more tears to cry
Into the shadows
No more lies - it's the final way to paradise

I'm tortured by the demon of desire
I'm drowning in my dreams and fantasies
The raging storm is feeding on the fire
I'm praying for an answer to my pleas

Freedom now or never - Oh I'm going insane
Times have changed forever - free me forever

One more time I fly
Over the rainbow
One last time - no return
No more tears to cry
Into the shadows
No more lies - it's the final way to paradise

Welcome to the afterworld - I'll be there
Center of the universe - Take me there

Drowning in seas of desire
I'm dwelling in sadness and pain/fear
I end up in silent surrender
I'm resigning myself to my fate


12. Merlin - Requiem

I'll be there, out of infinity
I'll be there, when your alone in darkness
Whenever you are falling
I'll be there, when you need my wisdom
I'll be there, in your eternal dreams at
Anytime - anywhere

Merlin, son of a fallen angel
Merlin, a legend of the past
Foretold the story of two dragons
Fighting for the land
His name/fame will live forever

I'll be there, in eternal darkness
I'll be there when teardrops falling
When darkest shadows crawling
I am the air, I'm the breeze of freedom
I'll be there, when hope is gone forever
Anytime - Anywhere

Merlin, son of a fallen angel
Merlin, a legend of the past
Foretold the story of two dragons
Fighting for the land
His name/fame will live forever


13. Kingdom Of Madness

And I'm riding through the mountains
Through the winter nights, break for no one
On my way into the unknown
I take a ride, the one-way train to eden
Exit paradise

On the quest for my salvation
I'm always on the run, no surrender
And I'm running free forever
My journey ends at the gate of heaven
Exit paradise

A kingdom of madness, a heart full of sadness
My last sacrifice
A kingdom of madness , I'm drowning in sadness
My lost paradise

Now the end is coming closer
I'm diving to be free, I surrender
And I'm running with the devil
I don't care, I'm heading for the next world
Exit paradise

A kingdom of madness, a heart full of sadness
My last sacrifice
A kingdom of madness , I'm drowning in sadness
My lost paradise

A kingdom of madness, a heart full of sadness
A kingdom of madness, a heart full of sadness


14. A Perfect Day

I'm the biggest, I'm the best
I'm better than the rest
I'm bad, I'm worst, I rule
I'm better than the rest

I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I'm tough not faint
I'm smart, I'm rough so cool
I'm better than the rest

A perfect, a perfect day

Welcome to a perfect day, a perfect place to be
All the best that life can give, is not good enough for me
Welcome to a perfect time, a perfect unity
The best is only good enough, good enough for me

I'm sexy, I'm hot
I'm right on the spot
I'm clever, however, I'm cool
I'm better than the rest

I'm a rebel, a rocker
A bloody motherfucker
I'm hard as a rock, so rude
I'm better than the rest

A perfect, a perfect day

Welcome to a perfect day, a perfect place to be
All the best that life can give, is not good enough for me
Welcome to a perfect time, a perfect unity
The best is only good enough, good enough for me

Welcome, welcome to the joy of life
