A chill grows near you're faced with fear

watch before me while you fall
Times are changing, rearranging
transient dreaming do you believe in

to a destiny that fate knows well

beware the season - the lies, the treason, the pain
You're running in reverse now - while struggling to break
the path you strayed from can only lead to dismay
Living a timeless tale
Passion and glory fill my heart

Untrue reality
as we fight to stay alive
Awakened by the thunder - crashing conscience
persistent voices - all evils call out your name
Tears can break the silence - let your doubts
You're releasing inned peace from your soul
Marching on staff in hand
carry on through the endless nights calling
Living a timeless tale
Passion and glory fill my heart

Untrue reality
as we fight to stay alive
Crying downs your doubts and fears

looking out through all the years
it replaces
Love will light the darkness there
it replaces the nameless faces of loneliness that you once

falling into darkness

Behold the truth unveiled
Knowing my fate
Nightmare of fantasy
Learning the lesson
