Royal Hunt - Closing The Chapter lyrics


02. The Awakening

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
Standing at the crossroad, waiting for the storm
I can feel it coming on the wings of dawn
So many years, I've walked alone - down the long way home

03. River Of Pain

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
I don't believe in tomorrows - you'll never change my point of view
My fears and sorrows running down my spine, I tell you
I watch my people dying, I watch them go - I don't know where
the skies are crying, washing out their blood into the....

The river runs away
Turns red and looks like a vain
The river shows the way
Away from bloody rain

The Gods of war are calling, I hear their voices in the wind
The sun is falling - another day is gone, another sin
I see the star of sadness is touching bodies on the ground
Somebody's madness just took my life and turned it upside down

The river of pain - we're all betrayed and sold
The river of pain - my land is dead and cold
The river of pain - when I close my eyes
The river of pain - spirit never dies

My time has come I'm leaving, my mind is tearing me apart
I wanna die believing in common snese and wisdom of my heart

04. Tearing Down The World

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
Every empire was raised by the slave
Built through the ages - destroyed in a day
Solid walls your golden cage, now it's time to turn the page

Tearing down - we're gonna burn it
To the ground - you'll never learn it
Watch us now - we're tearing down the world
Tearing down - by bits and pieces
To the ground - we'll never miss it
Watch us now - we're tearing down the world

Brother to brother, father to son
No one recalls when the madness began - and nobody cares!
Can you live your life in hell, can't you hear the warning bell?

Water's like acid and heaven's like hell
Whole world's like paper and steel
What should we do it if won't ring a bell
Tell me just what do you feel?

Drink out of the ocean and stare down the stars
Burn down the forest and steal
food from the hungry, you made it so far
Tell me just how do you feel?

05. Message To World

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
The one who's watching my shoulder - get a life
I see your arms are nailed to the cross but your eyes are so alive
I never thought you're lying but now it's turned around
So many hearts are dying - you've let them down
over and over again

Can't reach you, can't meet you
I gave you everything I've got
You hear me, don't leave me
It's my message to you, God
Can't see you, can't feel you
I've lost just everything I've got
Forget me, you've left me
It's my message to you, God

We're busy burning witches the way we've learned from you
We're good at killing creatures, so teach us something new, come on!
One of your own creations is kind of hard to understand
You, freak of nature - just tell me why did you create us man?

Traces on the floor, I can't hear the door closing me
right inside my dream, it's a sign from him - let me be
Sunrise through the dust - future in the past chasing me
Shadows on the wall, voices down the halls calling me
over and over again

06. Long Way Home

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
When the night is calling I shut another door
Celebrating loneliness I've never known before
I miss a place to call my own - it's a long way home

In my open prison cell just everything I've got
disappeared in silence every word I've said is not
And now I'm lost and all alone - it's a long way home

It's a long road, but even longer for the blind
And I've been searching way too long
Still I can't find the place where I belong
It's a long way home

You see me suffer on my knees - I wish I knew just what it means
You watch us come, you watch us go - he tells me something I don't know
You've set me up, I thought I'm free - just tell me where you wanna be
Another step and I'll be gone - what you will do can be undone

07. Time Will Tell

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
You shut the door, you let me hang myself
You've turned your back on me and now I'm gone
So listen, ask yourself, can you undo what I've done?

You told me lies you've tried to put me down
You showed me hell because that's where I've been
I hope you're happy now - I didn't like what I have seen

Yeah, I do appreciate
You're the one who gave this kind of fate
to me, but I can't wait until

Time will tell - you're on your feet so far, but only
time will tell how long it's gonna last
Time will tell - you're reaching for the star, but only
time will tell if shadows from the past will bring you hell

You just can't get enough, you broke my heart
You're so rich now you can ski uphill
Tear my life apart - you never ask me how I feel

Life is going down the drain
You got pleasure, all I got is pain - you're driving me insane

Rest your weary head my son, all your trouble's just begun
Close your eyes, unchain your heart - help you God
Full of hate as you have always been
Drop your gun 'coz anger is a sin

08. Silent Scream

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
White dress, torture in disguise, pointing flashlight right into my eyes
Sharp pain every single night - every day I fight a hopeless fight

Look, over thirty years I've wished that I was dead
Somebody, help me out, 'coz I'm tied down to my bed

I'm looking for someone to release me
I'm waiting for an angel from my dream
I'm talking to all of you around me
I'm asking you - tell me can you hear my silent scream?

Dear God gave me such a life full of pain, it's sharp just like a knife
I can think, but I can not tell, what's life to you to me is hell

I hear the storm outside - first drop just hit the roof
I'd die to see the rain, but I can't .. move

.. If living is my cross, so let me die or crucify me now,
but tell me, can you hear my silent scream?

Time stays still - only I can feel when the darkness will appear
Every day I wished away my fear

09. It's Over

Music & lyrics by André Andersen
Look, broken moon shines through the clouds so restless
Cold, even light just touched the hill of sadness
Flash back - it all happens again
Traces of tears will be washed off by rain

Over, it's over, look I'm goin' down
but you can't see anything
Over, it's over, King is Dead - Long Live the King

I'm on the same path to the cross as last time
they'll crucify me once again - you've broken my heart
As you did it before
Judas I'll wait, come and knock on my door

Over, it's over, they just shut me down
and when won't do anything
Over, it's over, King is Dead - Long Live the King
