[ELEKTRA:]
There´s a Rainbow, cover it in Blood
There´s no Light upon my door
There´s a Cold Wind, Rising from the Sea
There is Death and nothing more...
But don´t turn away with eyes of the blind
There´s still Magick in your Soul
There is Magick still...

[ELEKTRA & ELDERS:]
Iron Walls and Chains surround us
Yet we are Proud and Free
Nothing Kills the Ties that Bind us
I´ll meet you at the GATE OF KINGS!!!

[ORESTES "in phocis":]
There´s a Silence tearing up the ground
Freezing Heart and Shield and Bone
In their grasp I see you as you lay
Broken, cold beneath their Rage
We won´t turn away with eyes of the blind
There´s still Magick in our Souls
There is Magick still...

[ALL:]
Iron Walls and Chains surround us
Yet We are Proud and Free
Nothing Kills the Ties that Bind Us
I´ll meet you at the GATE OF KINGS... THE GATE OF KINGS...

[ALL:]
Iron Walls and Chains surround us
Yet We are Proud and Free
Nothing Kills the Ties that Bind Us
I´ll meet you at the GATE OF KINGS
(Repeat)
