01. Eternity

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
As I sit upon these rocks above
I feel the waves crash upon the shore
As the sea sprays on my glowing face
I wish I could embrace the sea
for evermore
As I lay my head to sleep at night
I dream the sea and me we flow as one
But I'm a prisoner of the sands and
no one understands these childish dreams

An old man approaches me
His feeble mind confusing to thee
He speaks in riddles and rhymes
Tales of an old witch that cast him
from the sea
But wait my eyes full of splendor
or could this be some crazy old tale
I look to his eyes for the answer

I will my soul to the sea
for Eternity
I will my soul to the sea
for Eternity

And so the journey begins
The pain and suffering
Are your dreams worth this torment?
You can deal Another hand
But the light in the distance
promises this the journeys end
Great gods of olympus
Great god Poseidon
Accept this mortal never let
Him return, For He's willed
His soul to the sea
For Eternity

I will my soul to the sea
for Eternity
I will my soul to the sea
for Eternity


02. Black Tower

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
O Black Tower what is your power?
What makes men run and hide
I've foreseen the evil in the
Dead of the night
As the demons they dance in my mind

Telling tales of horror
And the splendor of their torture
Burning flames reach for the sky
The gates of Hell are open wide

O Black Tower
Black Tower

O Black Tower
Why do you devour?
The souls they sleep in the night
Casting evil shadows signs of no tomorrows
Why must I fear for my life?

Telling tales of horror
And the splendor of their torture
Burning flames reach for the sky
The gates of Hell are open wide
Why must the demons dance in my mind?

O Black Tower
Black Tower

Now I know it's the truth
All the evil men do
They shall pay their dues
Nightmares tell the truth

O Black Tower
Black Tower

Why must the demons dance in my mind?


03. Call Of The Sea

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Endless alone lost at sea
It's a never ending chore to
Keep my head above these waters
I've never feared before

The sun has taken its toll
The salt runs in my veins
I've never feared before these
Waters I've grown to hate
Will I live to see tomorrow?
Or will I die in this watery depth?
The sea is calling me
My will to live is stronger than
These tides could ever be
The sea is calling me
Why won't I let these waters
Claim me victory?

I long for the place where the
Winds and the tide tear at the shore
But in the twilights of my dreams
The fire rages on

Endless alone lost at sea
It's a never ending chore to
Keep my head above these waters
I've never feared before

I long for the place where the
Winds and the tide tear at the shore
But in the twilights of my dreams
The fire rages on

The sea is calling me
My will to live is stronger than
These tides could ever be
The sea is calling
Why won't I let these waters
Claim me victory?


04. Proud Nomad

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Now I tell you an ancient tale
Of an ancient man
From not such a distant land
Chivalry rode forth on his mighty horse
The crest of the church
Engraved upon his chest

Winding down this dizzy path
Towards the dragon's lair
The howl of the wind screams beware
Your pulse starts to quicken
Your blood runs with fear
You feel the heat now rising
It tells the dragon's near

Proud nomad of the past
Beware of yourself for
Your life won't last
Proud Nomad of the past
Pride has killed a thousand
Men before you
Proud Nomad of the past
Beware of yourself for
Your life won't last

Proud Nomad of the past
So let not this foolishness
Hold you in it's grasp
Stop, beware, run for your life
Fear for your life
While there's still time to choose
Halt don't go near
Don't you realize you have only one life
So don't be a fool

But time and time again
I see it in their eyes
It's the weakness of mortal men
They live by this creed
Though it will find them dead

Proud Nomad of the past
Beware of yourself for
Your life won't last


05. Red Sands

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Shrill of the horn screams my name
Pounding the ground
The games begin
The crowd they roar
The blood it boils inside me
I fear not you you fear not me
The swords are drawn
And shimmering
The time has come again
To honor our king

The gods have blessed
This wicked game
Fight we must and show no shame
For the time has come again
To feed our blood thirsty king

I look into your eyes
Reflections of the sky
A whisper on the wind
As your soul says goodbye

Reds sands underneath my feet
Stained by the blood
I draw from thee
Red sands as far as I can see
Tainted these lands
Stained by history

What once was a whisper
Now is an echo in my head
The look on their faces
As i stand in this sea of red
I feel the evil rising
Hear the mesmerizing
Voice from hell
Feel the evil rising
Hear the mesmerizing
Voice from hell


06. One Of The Hunted

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
I feel the distant stare
Of a watching eye
Watching eyes of THE woodsman
Quivers of death await me here
I'm blind to their illusion - confusion

Fletching of fowl Slips
Through the wind
Releasing their death with
Their fingers
My fate lies on a tensel line
I must escape but there's
Nowhere to hide

The now exchanging roles
In this theater of ill HUMOR
The understudy steals
The stage with an encore performance

One of the hunted -
The tables have turned
One of the hunted -
There's nowhere to run
One of the hun ted -
The tables have turned
One of the hunted -
There's nowhere to run

In the temples of nature
I hear the laughter
Just another victim on
This lonely trail
They show no emotion for
This loss of life
It reminds me of myself not long ago
And the cries for life that
I'd seem to ignore
The cries for life are now
My very own

One of the hunted
The tables have turned
One of the hunted
There's nowhere to run
One of the hunted
The tables have turned
One of the hunted
There's nowhere to run


07. Fire Within

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Take a look into the crystal
Take a look at what the
Future may bring
All around you is darkness
As your shattered soul screams
As I stand before the crystal
See my life pass before me
Stand up straight look into my
Eyes tell me what do you see?

Is there no gold at the end
Of this rainbow?
Is there no hope at the end
Of the road?
Will there be strength for
The dreams that I've lived for
Or will I just let go?

Many years have passed me by
Many trials of life i've survived
stills the head wind blows my way
It's getting harder everyday

Is there no gold at the end
Of this rainbow?
Is there no hope at the end
Of the road?
Will there be strength for
The dreams that I've lived for
Or will I just let go?

The fire within is smoldering
The waters of life are raging In
Once there was passion
Desire to win


08. Warbird

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Taking time out to create
His own war
It an aerial assault
It's the war of the bird
Strapped to his forearm
Awaiting flight,
He's blind as the night
Set his mask free
Piercing eyes point towards the sea

A waiting white gull
So swift in flight
Flowing like the sea
Shadowed by his wing spread
As the bird takes to flight
He is bound in ecstacy

As the claws sink in deep
He hears the bird start to scream
As his life is taken from him
Another trophy retrieved

Warbird Champion your King
Warriors on wings
Warbird Champion your King
Warriors on wings

Sheltered eyes hide the deep blue sky
Shackles hold the arching wings
Until tomorrow imprisoned
For tomorrow he will be free

Taking time out to create
His own war
It an aerial assault
It's the war of the bird
Strapped to his forearm
Awaiting flight
He's blind as the night
Set his mask free
Piercing eyes point
Towards the sea


09. What About Me

Music by Thom Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
It was just another night
She held me in
Her arms so tight
We were dreaming with the
Stars in our eyes
But I never realized

Like The wild in a cage
Waiting to be free
A bird on the ground
With a broken wing
You wanted to fly
You had to be free
But what about me?

It was just another day
You had so much to say
Our love was still strong
But you had to be free

Like the wild in a cage
Waiting to be free
A bird on the ground
With a broken wing
You wanted to fly
You had to be free
But what about me?

Now the sands of time
Have buried the heartbreak
You walked in with the wind
Uncovered the memories
You're holding your arms out to me
Temptation is all I see
I have to be strong
You had to be free
Cause it's all about me

Like The wild in a cage
Waiting to be free
A bird on the ground
With a broken wing
You wanted to fly
You had to be free
But what about me?


10. Etude Jongleur

Music by Thomas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
My entrance purely pleasure
For your riches I ask you not
For I am the gleeman
Who loves to sing
And strike upon my golden harp

So I bow before you o mighty king
In the hopes you hear my song
These feet have traveled far and wide
In a life lived FOR THE song

I claim no land my home
For I know not where I'm from
Traveled mountain peaks
And valleys low
In a life for the son of a bard

Raise your harp my friend
For the song that burns
In your heart
Sing of the heroes
And the days that time forgot
Sing of the days of the Earls and
The Kings and the Knights
That conquered great feats
For these are the things
That we all dream
But only your eyes have seen

A life for a lyric
I've traveled these war lands deep
Raging the knights in shining armor
Surely death awaits the weak
I've sailed the viking vessels
Plunging the northern seas
Crossing the blue horizon
No land for the eye to see
For the eye to see
Raise your harp my friend
For the song that burns
In your heart
Sing of the heroes
And the days that time forgot
Sing of the days of the Earls
And the Kings and the Knights
That conquered great feats
For these are the things
That we all dream
But only your eyes have seen.
