Time moves forward, as I do Never looking back I did my time for love that betrayed me I live on One foot forward moves me close to a new life ahead Mistakes left behind, unforgiven And I live on Lies left behind, I’m a stranger to my hometown blood on my hands washed away And I move on One foot forward moves me close to a new life ahead Mistakes left behind, unforgiven Majestic mountains reaching to the sky Blinding my vision to the world Towering above, I cannot see Trapped inside for all eternity Time moves forward, as I do Never looking back I did my time for love that betrayed me I live on One foot forward moves me close to a new life ahead Mistakes left behind, unforgiven Majestic mountains reaching to the sky Blinding my vision to the world Towering above, I cannot see Trapped inside for all eternity I’m trapped I am trapped inside!

All the leaders have fallen Screams death ring into the sky Dungeon steel keeps on calling Bloodstained walls and the keeper of death I rise among you; I hold the cold steel in my hands Insane leaders who live in fear of her Evil Princess coming for you Beware of her evil glances Headless children, killing, torture Burning corpses, evil princess Her crimson eyes blaze like fire Her hair like knives drape to her thighs As she gazes in her crystal He anger builds and she blows her mind Black magic bitch, destroying everyone in her way She lives in blood, from the dead king she stole from them Evil Princess coming for you Beware of her evil glances Headless children, killing, torture Burning corpses, evil princess Evil Princess coming for you Beware of her evil glances Headless children, killing, torture Burning corpses, evil princess

Screams in the distance, Fear in the night Burn the witches Chants from Beyond, A time that has died Watch them bleed Evil’s to sin, and sinners must Marked by the martyr, burned at the stake Kill them all Hunted for crimes not understood, hung and burned Searching for you, nowhere to run Flee for your life, death marches on It’s the call of midnight Alone in the dark It’s the call of midnight To keep fear alive Dark clouds of anger rip through the sky Damn the wicked Fire from your god, disease in your mind Strike them down Searching for you, nowhere to run Flee for your life, death marches on It’s the call of midnight Alone in the dark It’s the call of midnight To keep fear alive …to keep it alive! Evils to sin, sinners must die! It’s the Call of Midnight!

What happened to us Where did we go wrong Were we in love Where has it gone You left me all alone You said it had to be Don’t want to hurt me You set me free The beginning of our end All alone here I am What can I do, I still love you What can I do, I still love you What happened to you Where did you go wrong Were you in love Where has it gone What happened to me Where did I go wrong I was in love and it’s all but gone The beginning of our end All alone here I am What can I do, I still love you What can I do, I still love you

Lives of the damned are portrayed Feel the pain in these walls Enslaved in the dungeons of steel Tortured lives, tortured souls Death and decay, rotting corpses They lie next to me And the ground and the steel The shackles and chains It takes my silence away Darkness surrounds me The screams in these dungeons of pain As I look up to the sky See the terror in my eyes As I lay on my back In the depth, in the dark And the stench and decay In the steel, in the steel In the steel dungeons Of my days Houses of madness and fear Where the fire dragons dwell And the ancient rites of the cursed Battles lost, soldiers killed Heavens so cold and so dead Where the dead spirits cry And the voices call to me Take my soul take my life Steel dungeons

Lying here in bed I listen to the soft sounds Ringing In my head You soft, spoken voice Still exists even though you’re gone Maybe tomorrow, maybe never I hope to see you again Knowing I’ll be by your side That is why I wake To the morning light And yet I still wonder After so much time spent alone at night Day after day This burning deep inside A feeling not feel so long Maybe tomorrow, maybe never I hope to see you again Knowing I’ll be by your side That is why I wake To the morning light It’s too late to go to bed It’s too late to rise Only now do I realize It’s your gentle touch It is your kiss In the morning light That I need

Reaching the sky Clutching at my heart The sun begins to die Leaving me for dead Scream echoes fades Last horizon waits Dark visions gray The cold silence No more tomorrow No more last goodbyes Until the end of time Shadows drain my eyes The blood that fill my veins The wind of ancient times Tearing at my soul Scream echoes fades Last horizon waits Dark visions gray The cold silence No time for sorrow No time for the pain No sign in the heavens No sign in the rain No more tomorrow No more last goodbyes Until the end of time I am forsaken No time for sorrow No time for the pain No sign in the heavens No sign in the rain No more tomorrow No more last goodbyes Until the end of time

I can’t survive without you I need the pain in my veins It seems I’ll never learn I take my life for granted Love is found inside of you I crave the release so bad Will they care if I die today? It’s just a small thrill always Take my life in my own hands I hope that god will understand I need a vivid image To make reality more clear I feel from grace long ago Take me my lord if it’s my time Because I am so afraid to live And I’m so damn scared to die Will they care if I die today? It’s just a small thrill always Take my life in my own hands I hope that god will understand I can’t survive without you I need the pain in my veins It seems I’ll never learn Taking my life for granted Love is found inside of you Longing for the temporary pleasure And this endless pain goes on forever

Where you gonna go What’s it gonna be like What the hell you gonna do With the rest of your life There’s a price to be paid For the choices you’ve made Everything you do Well it just comes back Don’t you try to blame the world Just give the devil his due All your dreams stretched out ahead All the problems you left behind Looking back on your life The heart will know you’ve won And you will see just why you had to work so hard Why do they take control Why won’t they let me live my life Taking my mind and twisting my soul Why do they take control Making us their slaves Fly away your dreams Don’t give up don’t give in Just fly away Tomorrows not what it seems Testing fate and destiny’s hand at controlling my life While ascending my dreams Taking steps one at a time while taking control of my life And life awaits for your dreams And life awaits on your dreams

Back in the days where the world was a wasteland Fear and pestilence would reign The terror and panic spreads like a wild fire Brining shrouds of sorrow Gods of war, gods of the aftermath Destruction lies in their wake The violent skies with clouds of uncertainty Trembling masses gathering near No time to run One second warning Close your eyes One second warning Cry out in pain Plague of lies, a touch of the innocence All eyes blinded by to sea Beyond the vengeance awaiting the prophecy Restoring fate to mankind’s chaos No time to run One second warning Close your eyes One second warning Cry out in pain One second warning Warning
