01. Era Of Chaos

Good and evil. The one seems to be unable to exist
without the other. There's always been a balance
between them. Everytime something bad happened,
something good would take it's place elsewhere.

But evil needed supreme power, and isn't it so much
easier to grow dark, and forget the path of the righteous?
And so the times where changing. The balance was disturbed,
and the scale was tipping towards darkness. Every creature,
good and evil, could feel the change, feel the struggle,
and feel the light of the world being consumed by the
ever-growing malice.

The beings of darkness would claim this as their time to rule,
and so they walked the earth, killing all that is good.
It was then, when hope was weakening, that a silent but
powerful wish went out into the night. A wish for something,
a wish for someone, to end this era of chaos.


02. The Birth

In the middle of this night time, silence rules the earth
and the creatures of the forest will bare witness of a birth
a child conceived by wishes, and a touch of divine
no mother and no father but born of purest light

(Chorus)
Welcome into this world, it's not what it once was
peace has left for suffering and it's closing in on us
we shall be your guardians, some of what still remains
of what once was good in this world and not bound by evil chains

A touch of human, with markings from beyond
where will you go, where could you come from little one
is your blood from this world, do you bleed like us at all
your presence seems so mighty, and yet you're so small

(Chorus x 2)
Welcome into this world, it's not what it once was
peace has left for suffering and it's closing in on us
we shall be your guardians, some of what still remains
of what once was good in this world and not bound by evil chains

No hurt, no pain, no suffering has yet run through your veins
we will guard you from the wicked evil chains
the ancient trees, will grant you peace, your brothers are the
spirits of the wood this will be your childhood - welcome here
- welcome here - welcome here - welcome here


03. What Lies Beyond

Running on strong legs exploring like a child
not from here but born into the wild
the malice from outside has not yet reached this realm
but it's the calm before the storm

From here i see the fading light
and the beginning of night

(Chorus)
Tell me friends what lies beyond
the borders of this peaceful place
only ancient evil which you child
are not ready to face
elusive, deceiving, don't trust what lies beyond
'cause evil, is moving, it can not be undone

Growing fast I'm only one year old now
but stronger and smarter somehow
I'm learning so fast, how long will this last
yesterday seems like a long gone past

I feel I have purpose in being here
but not to know is hard to bear

(Chorus)
Tell me friends what lies beyond
the borders of this peaceful place
only ancient evil which you child
are not ready to face
elusive, deceiving, don't trust what lies beyond
'cause evil, is moving, it can not be undone

Oh, look at me now
I'm different somehow
the marks in my face
are not from this place...
not from this place...

(Chorus)
Tell me friends what lies beyond
the borders of this peaceful place
only ancient evil which you child
are not ready to face
elusive, deceiving, don't trust what lies beyond
'cause evil, is moving, it can not be undone


04. Ancient Words Within

Strange manifestations in my mind
Words of a long lost and forgotten kind
Why I speak them, I don't know
Why I write them, time will show

The are buried deep within me
The are living can't you see

[Chorus]
I seek for answers can't you see
My rapid growing and the strange words within me
I long to write them I long to feel
I long to speak them, to make them real

We see your changes and we can not lie
We don't have the answers, we don't know why
No soul amongst these old trees can guide you
Leave on a journey, that's what you must do

Find the answers that you seek
Speak the words you long to speak

[Chorus]
I seek for answers can't you see
My rapid growing and the strange words within me
I long to write them I long to feel
I long to speak them, to make them real

You must leave the shadows of these trees
Travel along evil paths and leave safety
Seek the old who hold the keys
They guard writings with all prophecies
Travel fast, travel long
But beware 'cause evil's strong
They reign supreme, outside these woods
They'll kill by sight and devour light

[Chorus]
I seek for answers can't you see
My rapid growing and the strange words within me
I long to write them I long to feel
I long to speak them, to make them real


05. Souls In Pain

And so it begins, I'll search for my way
Do not say goodbye, I will return someday
I leave for my future covered by dim light
All that I bring are the words in my mind

I travel through valleys and over mountains
Fearing what lurks in the dark
And all that I see is sorrow and pain
And innocent slain

[Chorus]
Why, oh tell me why must all the good die
This is not right, I feel rage tonight
Hate against evil and all who serve it
Fear of the victims who don't deserve it
Their souls are in pain
Their bones remain
What can I do to fight it

I hate to see all the hurt
Of the ones left behind

I hear them coming slowly, marching feet of hordes
They're bred by chaos, nurtured by hate
It is their time now, and they are evil lords
Someone must stand tall before it's to late

The peace amongst old trees, where did it go
Out here it seems oh so cold
Shadows where no eyes see, I move through the leaves
No one can speak to me

[Chorus]
Why, oh tell me why must all the good die
This is not right, I feel rage tonight
Hate against evil and all who serve it
Fear of the victims who don't deserve it
Their souls are in pain
Their bones remain
What can I do to fight it

And I hate to see all the hurt
Of the ones left behind... behind... behind

[Chorus]
Why, oh tell me why must all the good die
This is not right, I feel rage tonight
Hate against evil and all who serve it
Fear of the victims who don't deserve it
Their souls are in pain
Their bones remain
What can I do to fight it

And I hate to see all the hurt
Of the ones left behind


06. She Who Summons Me

Here in all this blackness
I feel a sadness, and it won't go away
I walk, I follow my pathway
But there's a question that burns deeper each day

Why am I here, Where do I go
Has someone called me
Then please tell me so
And as I leave the shadows
I see her sitting there
Night turns into day
She's looking my way

There is grief in her face
She's mourning lost ones
Somehow she seems familiar
And her eyes warm like the sun
She said:

I know your face, you were there in my dreams
The answer to my prayers and the echo of my screams
This world is still worth saving but I can't do it alone
I've lost those close to my heart and now I need someone
I don't have all the answers and I don't know what you are
But goodness lies within you and I'm asking you to save us all

You are the one who called me here
And I wish I could take away your fear
I head your prayers, but I did not know
And I still don't know where I came from
But time will show

You are the one who called me here
I swear I will take away your fear
Hear my promise, I will come back, I will shelter you
I shall fight the wicked with all my strength
I would die for you


07. The Bone Carver

And so my journey goes on,
Will this be forever
I made a promise and keep it I will,
I will not forget her
The answers I seek from the old
Seem a lifetime away
Inside I shiver,
The cold and the dark will feast on me today

The day turns to night, and the night back to day
Now I feel that I've found the right way
I have reached gates, behind timeless black walls
Where immortals roam in the halls

[Chorus]
Question lie hiding in the dark
I have come for answers
Riddles fly and I know there's more
Something powerful slumbers inside
But I don't know what
For my true origin is unknown

We know what you are, you are the one
Who brings hope where there is none
The fountain of life lies within you
And within the words deep in your mind
When evil grows strong a creature is born
Who shall carry a light through the night
He shall bring back the souls of lost ones
They shall join him in one final fight

You must cut sacred words, into the bones of the fallen
By the touch of your blade they shall rise again
Evil shall tremble, as the blessed begin to march
'Cause they're craving justice deep in their hearts

[Chorus]
Question lie hiding in the dark
I have come for answers
Riddles fly and I know there's more
Something powerful slumbers inside

Questions lie hiding in the dark
I have come for answers
Riddles fly and I now know why
My powers are growing inside

And by the sound of these words
I now know who I am, I have carried
The answers deep within me
I have no more questions
I have a promise to keep
I am the bone carver
Let the war begin

Now I know
Something powerful is inside
Please grant me this
Let my power grow


08. Bring Back Life

Questions I had and answers were given
My journey back me swift, without fear
I carry a secret old as all ages
I must use what I bring back from here

The souls that were slain,
Will walk the earth once more
A second chance will be given,
And then nevermore

[Chorus]
By the touch of my blade
By the magic of my words
I will bring back the life
Taken from this world
By the touch of my blade
By the magic of my words
I will bring back the life
Taken from this world

The wind in the trees, like comforting words
I fell hope for the first time here
The moon lights my way
Through the shades of the night
I must brake down the will of my fear

In the land of the wicked
I walk on my own
But in the final fight
I shall not stand alone

[Chorus]
By the touch of my blade
By the magic of my words
I will bring back the life
Taken from this world
By the touch of my blade
By the magic of my words
I will bring back the life
Taken from this world

Your lives in fear, will soon be over
I have travelled through darkness to know my fate
All the agony shall be no more
And the air shall be cleansed of all the hate
I must bring to life what I carry inside

Someone has come, sent from beyond
With the north winds the world will spread
I am no God, but help you I will
Soon I shall bring back the living from the dead

Hear my words
Speak my name
Believe in me
And live again


09. Blood Red Skies

Many sleepless nights had come and gone
Since the day I left the hall of the immortals,
The story of a lost child had spread,
A child who became a man and discovered
A destiny greater than any tale ever told,
I am their last hope, but what a terrible burden that is

Finding the words for what I carry inside is hard
Sometimes I feel strong knowing my powers
And other times the task ahead seems to crush
Me with its weight but I won't give up

The people would come from far away
In search of hope a glimpse of the divine

Bring me your fallen heroes and loved ones
And you shall witness the powers that were
Given to me, the powers I brought from another world
Be not afraid, for I will use them to do good

And then it began, I carved the ancient writings
Into the bones of every creature who died by the
Hand of evil, the whispers of a thousand ages would
Roam the air, and the skies turned blood red
As the bones were once again covered by flesh and the life that
Was stolen from them, was now flowing through their veins

Listen to my words, your lives come at a price
Join me in the battle of all ages
We must make our final stand here, now
And crush the wicked before it's too late

Let the war begin...


10. Tears Of Hate

We leave to seek out the hosts of chaos
Wherever they may be
The dead walk again through the realms of this place
And they will fight with me

Fear our golden army
We come with great sounds of doom
But only for the wicked
The shall bleed and new life will bloom

New life will bloom

[Chorus]
Raise your heads to the black sky of this night
Scream out loud and cry your tears of hate
Raise your heads to the black sky of this night
Seal your enemy's fate
Blood will be shed death caused by the dead
The price will be life in harmony
And the creatures of night will rule no more
The balance restored that's the way it has to be

Here on the fields that bleed my thoughts
Fly to the one
Who made a wish for all
I know she is safe and my promise I kept
I followed her sad call

Horror, and screams of pain
As we spill the black blood in their veins
They did nit show us mercy
And we will never hesitate
Will never hesitate

[Chorus]
Raise your heads to the black sky of this night
Scream out loud and cry your tears of hate
Raise your heads to the black sky of this night
Seal your enemy's fate
Blood will be shed death caused by the dead
The price will be life in harmony
And the creatures of night will rule no more
The balance restored that's the way it has to be

And in the end the peace was restored
But war left its scars on the souls and in the hearts
Of every living creature, many had been given a second
Chance, and they used it to create new life and to treasure
The life that was given to them, and the Bone Carver, some say
He went back to his home, wherever that was
Weeks became years, years became centuries
And he became nothing more than a legend

Legend of the Bone Carver
He was real, in a time of despair, he was there
Legend of the Bone Carver
