Precious Jerusalem
Very cool song!!!!!!.........have a listen its from the album "a night at the opera"

Precious Jerusalem

No doubt doubt
No longer need to hide it
I've found out who I am
I' moved around in circles
I rise and fall again
I know it well
Every word I tell
Seems to make no sense at all

Words will heal it
Love will conquer
The hearts of the hopeless
The almighty is still alive

Risin' up from the heart of the desert
Risin' up for Jerusalem
Risin' up from the heart of the desert
Building up old Jerusalem
Risin' up from the heart of the desert
Risin' up for Jerusalem
Risin' up from the heart of the desert
Building up old Jerusalem

I've gone beyond
But there's no life
And there is nothing how it seems
I've gone beyond
But there's no life
There is no healing rain in Eden
The empty barren wasted paradise

Let's celebrate the dawning of the son

I turn to you oh my precious Jerusalem
Deny your prophets their passion and treat them like fools
I turn to you oh my precious Jerusalem
Deny my love but you can change fate

Son of man
You truly are mine

Can't stand the pain
No more grief and misery
It goes on and on and on and on
and on and on and on

Father stop it now
We must stop it now

You really think you are half way up
I would not mind if you were right
It's not sure
I'd rather say you are half way down
So I am going to help you
If I can

I've been caught
In wilderness
In wilderness
I've got out well
I found myself
In desert lands
In desert lands
But you've been on my mind

I turn to you oh my precious Jerusalem
Deny your prophets their passion and treat them like fools
I turn to you oh my precious Jerusalem
Deny my love but you can change truth

Rise up and follow me
'Cause I will bring the light
Rise up and follow me
Wake up and clear your mind
I try to bring it back
The seed of life
I try to bring it back
The seal of light

So if you say
There's no faith in man
You better keep in mind
That I can read between the lines
My heavy burden brings
Eyesight to the blind

I've been caught
In wilderness
In wilderness
I've got out well
I found myself
In desert lands
In desert lands
But you've been on my mind

I turn to you oh my precious Jerusalem
Deny your prophets their passion and treat them like fools
I turn to you oh my precious Jerusalem
Deny my love but you can change meback to top
Battlefield
It cannot be seen but there's blood on the green
Only God knows I'm innocent
Take me, take me home
A dark seed reigns in me like the Storm rules over the sea
I challenge thee, do not cross this bridge alone

Don't dare me now
The threatening shadows will pass by

They're getting closer now
Open your eyes
Wake up my dear young friend
And hate shall fade away

I will not move, yet
I'll stand still instead

There on the battlefield he stands
Down on the battlefield he's lost
And on the battlefield it ends

War and anger shall reign
The clash of iron can be heard
By blindness you're driven insane
I'm lost in anguish and grief
Sorrow won't wane 'til you die
A shattered body deeply hurt
And darkness will cover the light
It's gone forevermore

The field's been left in sorrow
The father and the son they're gone
The Sun shines bright and anger rises
Lorn and lonely torn apart
Don't you think it's time to stop now
We were charmed and fooled by the old serpent's kiss

Let's pray that heaven is on our side
Through violence and horror shall honour arise
So let's pray and blessed shall be our leader
We follow the noble and bright

Don't you hear me crying, crying
Come take me away
I hallow thy name

There on the battlefield he stands
Down on the battlefield he's lost
And on the battlefield it ends

War and anger shall reign
The clash of iron can be heard
By blindness you're driven insane
I'm lost in anguish and grief
Sorrow won't wane 'til you die
A shattered body deeply hurt
And darkness will cover the light
It's gone forevermore

That's what the minstrel sing
Join in the horrible screams
Take part in murderous deeds
Renowned be the lion-hearted

Join in the minstrelsy
Wailing in endless grief
It eagerly longs for more
Broken bodies lay down on the ground

Blood sheds all over the place
The green will be stained forever
And hate reigns all over the field
They keep struggling on in anger

Fiercely intense outrageous, too blind to see
And in pain they keep on singing
We claim the land for the highlord
God bless the land and our highlord

War and anger shall reign
The clash of iron can be heard
By blindness you're driven insane
I'm lost in anguish and grief
Sorrow won't wane 'til you die
A shattered body deeply hurt
And darkness will cover the light
It's gone forevermoreback to top
Under the Ice
Run
'Til you find the answer
Time out
For our poor Cassandra
She's fairly safe inside the fire

Inside the fire
Awakes desire
Cruelly admired

They'll torture her soul
And they'll torment her heart
But won't change her mind

Would you like to see me
How I'll cut off
Her head life's a game
A lesson to learn
Don't be shy just blame me
Well, there is no
Need to feel ashamed
Remember the oath
Remember the oath

Wake up
It's time to cross the border
Is it true what they say
About the part you've played?

Enjoy your stay here
Welcome to the slaughterhouse

Release from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods

Under the ice you will believe
Under the ice you will be free
Released from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods

Please understand
It's not in our hands
Barren the land
It's all dead and gone

And still the tyrant's face is red
So witness my glory, my triumph, my fame
It's the sweetest taste

King of terror just stop wining
Hold your breath it won't take long
Realize this is your judgement day
In between the killing carry on

There are no rules here
Welcome to the slaughterhouse

Release from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods

Under the ice you will believe
Under the ice you will be free
Released from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods

Try to understand

You're the artificial enemy
An illusion we all need
For our sake
For our sake

We're not allowed to see beyond that's your skill
Will we ever learn the lesson "We can't fly with broken wings"

Break the chains
Time to change
I'm afraid to say but you won't play a part

It's been nice we now get to the climax
Your destination's unknown
Just get out of my way

Don't mind the blood here
Welcome to the slaughterhouse

Release from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods

Under the ice you will believe
Under the ice you will be free
Released from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods

Under the ice you will be free
Released from rotten thoughts
No more pain
And no more gods
And no more gods
(No more gods)

I'm afraid to say but you won't play a partback to top
Sadly Sings Destiny
A wooden cup and a crown of thorns
Will set up the stage for the cross
I rent a room next door
There is nothing more
No further voices to hear
I'll be free

It doesn't matter anymore that someone's knocking at my door
I've known it long before the Galilean's on the floor
Shame on me, shame on me
I'm a tool and nothing more

I can feel it's getting nearer
Images they'll turn out clearer
Creeps in and out of your mind
I'm destiny personified
I know there's something more behind
But is it really justified
To sacrifice, to crucify
The rescue of the human kind

Sadly sings destiny
Sadly sings destiny
"For ages I've been waiting
Now spring is in the air
Let it in"
Sadly sings destiny
Sadly sings destiny
"For ages I've been waiting
Now spring is in the air
Let it in"

I hear them howling hear them scream
The raging mob turns mad it seems
"The king's in town
We need a crown"
I think we all know how it ends

"So we're not going take it longer"
So all I know is I don't care
"So we're not going take it longer"
Now we are aware

I can feel it's getting nearer
Images they'll turn out clearer
Creeps in and out of your mind
I'm destiny personified
I know there's something more behind
But is it really justified
To sacrifice, to crucify
The rescue of the human kind

Sadly sings destiny
Sadly sings destiny
"For ages I've been waiting
Now spring is in the air
Let it in"
Sadly sings destiny
Sadly sings destiny
"For ages I've been waiting
Now spring is in the air
Let it in"

There I tie the ass
There I tie the colt
Begging for a last chance I hear the voices say
"We get him home tonight and that's all you need to know"
I'm alone

So I can't stand it any longer
And don't want to see it all
Nazarene, your vision will come true
Will come true
They'll get you

I can feel it's getting nearer
Images they'll turn out clearer
Creeps in and out of your mind
I'm destiny personified
I know there's something more behind
But is it really justified
To sacrifice, to crucify
The rescue of the human kind

Sadly sings destiny

The Maiden and the Minstrel Knight
The faithful crowd is gathered here
Soon they'll appear
The high and mighty show up the king
Is in doubts
"Apart from this beggar here
There's no one like you my dear
Tasting my lips
No one but you and him"

Round the fire everyone should sing
And praise the gracious queen
Round the fire everyone should dance
And we praise the handsome knight

Forever and ever we both will be one
The maiden, the fair and the young
Fell in love

Will you still wait for me?
Will you still cry for me?
Come and take my hand
Will you still wait for me?
Will you still cry for me?
Come and take my hand

There's a moment in life when all the years will pass by
And the eyes filled with tears we once shed
We recognize failures, the desperate cries
Of the ones who believed in our lies

Whenever I'll go you'll be with me
My first though and my last
Though we'll depart in bitterness
One day you'll understand

Carry on
Beloved maiden, mine
Carry on
Or we have to pay the price

Will you still wait for me?
Will you still cry for me?
Come and take my hand
Will you still wait for me?
Will you still cry for me?
Come and take my hand

Yesterday's memories and melodies
Are gone with the wind, so sad
Snow-white her hands and golden her hair
But she's not the one
Out in the emptiness where everything's pale
There is no sign of you, I'm alone
How I wish you would be here, I'm alone
Telling me it's alright, come rest (your head)
Come rest your head
Come rest your head
Come rest your head
Come rest your head

I'm alone and sadness reigns in my heart
As long as we live it won't go away
We are one but torn apart

Will you still wait for me?
Will you still cry for me?
Come and take my hand
Will you still wait for me?
Will you still cry for me?
Come and take my hand

Proudly it stands
Until the world's end
The victorious banner of loveback to top
Wait for an Answer
I cannot say that I don't care cause I'm aware
Of everyone and everything they're everywhere

Don't be a fool
Stop spinning around
(Spinning around)
You're right it ain't safe here
Start using your brain, your brain

The cautious hare cannot be seen as a coward
He's simply aware
(He constantly) knows what's going on
That the wheel of life turns on
It won't hold on

Silent creature, filthy teacher's
Spreading the disease, a release
A vanished kingdom falls

It goes on, on and on and again
It goes on, round and round
Oh I can't get it out of my head

Wish I'd be a bird of prey
A pure and a blessed
A hawk who could ease the pain

Don't look back tell me
Is it where you belong
A place in the dark
A song without hope
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
Oh I wait for an answer so far
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
I will wait for an answer so far
Don't look back tell me

Is it where you (belong)
I will wait yes I will wait
Don't look back

We're the last descendants
In the line of valiant soldiers
We're mistreated angels
We are the blackbird nation, we're the chosen ones
We're the last descendants
We're the tribe of unsung glory
We are the fallen angels
Well the time is right you shall be on my (side)

I don't I don't I don't need anyone
Be with or be against me
I'm white I am chosen
There is not the slightest doubt at all
Not at all

In lower airs we're ground down by their ignorance

Hate will grow like a foul cancer
To find a foe seems to be the answer
Round and round it goes on and again oh
I can't get it out of my head

Wish I'd be a bird of prey
A pure and a blessed
A hawk who could ease the pain

Don't look back tell me
Is it where you belong
A place in the dark
A song without hope
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
Oh I wait for an answer so far
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
I will wait for an answer so far
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
I will wait yes I will wait
Don't look back

Don't be a fool
Stop spinning around
(Spinning around)
Don't move it ain't safe here
They've stained holy grounds
Oh no

The hopeful he sadly admits there's no hero
No place to hide there is no shelter from the storm
The maddened crow will spread terror
But I know bitterly they will stumble
Find themselves smashed on the ground

Don't look back tell me
Is it where you belong
A place in the dark
A song without hope
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
Oh I wait for an answer so far
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
I will wait for an answer so far
Don't look back tell me
Is it where you (belong)
I will wait yes I will wait
Don't look back

It's you who has said there's no tomorrow
I don't know but who I am
I wouldn't sit back any longer
It's surely built in sadness
But the sadness surely will go by
So we will all know the answer
The answer's within, it's in your mindback to top
The Soulforged
I'm not insane
That's how it seems though
Spiteful, cruel but wise beyond his age

My body fails
My soul will (rise)
The end of life's immortalized
Disease and agony
And I see death through golden eyes
(Beyond the door)
There's something more
It seems there's just one way

On through the heat
I've felt the touch of evil
I still feel
The icy claw in me

For a descent price I've banned kindness from my heart
The spirit of all truth and beauty pawned for my desire

And from the flames
As chance would have it
The Soulforged will come into light
And from the flames
As chance would have it
The Soulforged, the stainless will rise

I will never change my mind
I will leave it all behind

And through the hour glass
Everything's grey, everyone's pale
Nor colour nor beauty will enlighten my heart
The seat of life's empty and cold

Cadaverous you all seem to me
Stillborn but you're still alive
You're still alive

Truth lies in loneliness
When hope is long gone by
I'll wipe out the bliss of the new age
And welcome you precious night

And from the flames
As chance would have it
The Soulforged will come into light
And from the flames
As chance would have it
The Soulforged, the stainless will rise

>From a distant time voices echo in the hall
"Come and join us, enter life and everything is gone now"

And through the looking glass
I still fear mortality and
Its loss in the end
(Unlimited) power in my hands
("Mourn for his lost soul
He's cursed and condemned")
The claw of the dragon ascends

Each step I take mMay it hurt may It ache
Leads me further away from the past
But as long as I breathe (and) each smile on my bleak face
I'm on my way to find back to the Peace of mind

And from the flames
As chance would have it
The Soulforged will come into light
And from the flames
As chance would have it
The Soulforged, the stainless will rise

I will never change my mind
I will leave it all behindback to top
Age of False Innocence
Cut off the light, take a look
There's nothing beyond but pain
Suffer in the deepest void
The flame of hope is gone
What have I done?
Denied the father and the son
For a moment it seemed
There's space beyond the spheres

Aflame the night
So clear and bright
Unstable light
(You've been sacrificed in fear)
Now there's one thing for sure
I'm not afraid anymore

Day after day we've been fixed in this bowl for so long
For ages we're captured in shells and crystallized walls

Predestined or punished? By Man or God?

I cannot, I will not
Deny It's false innocence
I cannot, I will not
The age of false innocence
(Take it away from me)

(And) for a while astronomy has moved the Earth
And we've turned around the Sun
(Sanctum Officium)
Has made me believe
Has made me believe
Has made me believe

"We know for sure you're lying
Would you like to mess with holy science
You know the fear of dying
Would it be worth it to hear you crying"
I've slaughtered truth and I've shattered my heart

Far too long I have played with hellfire
And science has turned into madness
But I should have taken it higher
So I feel, so I feel
Like Judas must have felt before
That Wednesday night near by the tree

I cannot, I will not
Deny It's false innocence
I cannot, I will not
The age of false innocence
(Take It away from me)

Day after day we will gratefully suffer for more
Predestined's our part so we bleed in the name of God

Don't believe in their eternity
We're still held in blindness
And I've been turned into a liar
If there is no heaven there won't be release

I cannot, I will not
Deny It's false innocence
(I cannot) I will not
The age of false innocence
(I cannot) I will not
Deny It's false innocence
(I cannot) I will not
The age of false innocence

Punishment Divine
it's warm and tender
but very soon it will turn cold
shadows stare down from the walls
out of the mist it's coming closer now
it never rains -
it pours on me
so let the saints set up the curtyard
the unpleasant cage
the obvious point is
I'm insane
was I aware
whom I had slain
I fear I was
the faceless
the nameless
the bush set on fire
no one ever dared to speak
"shame on me
I don't believe
the here and now
is all we're living for"

joyful it seems
but then suddenly
by one fals move
it's blown away
joyful it seems
but then suddenly
thier voices cease
it's gone away
vanished
to the point of no return
vanished
to the point of no return

witness my last breath
I do not regret
a word I've said
the strong will survive
the weak must die
and out in the mist
it's coming closer now
sinner and saints -
the grateful slaves

natures law instead of god in heaven

from far beyond
I can hear them sing
I hear angels sing
songs of innocence
I hear the angel sing
despite the facts are clear
it cannot be
what I can't see
I must admit
it sounds so sweet

joyful it seems
but then suddenly
by one fals move
it's blown away
joyful it seems
but then suddenly
thier voices cease
it's gone away
vanished
to the point of no return
vanished
to the point of no return

angels sing I hear angels sing
can hear them sing
far beyond I hear them sing
it's true, it's true
we don't exist
from far beyond I hear them sing
it's true, it's true
we don't exist

well we all know
there's no other side
it's good and evil
I know right between
there's no borderline
this is punishment divine

surrounded by night
I've been offered insight
there is no one but the sin of pride
am I wrong am I right
am I losing my sight
abandoning the superior mind

joyful it seems
but then suddenly
by one fals move
it's blown away
joyful it seems
but then suddenly
thier voices cease
it's gone away
vanished
to the point of no return
vanished
to the point of no return

right away I will be gone
gone I will be gone

through the valleys grey
through the shapeless land
I walk alone
I'm left alone

through the deepest void
a blackened paradise
I walk alone
I'm left aloneback to top
And Then There Was Silence
Turn your head and see the fields of flames

He carries along
From a distant place
He's on his way
He'll bring decay
(don't move along
cause things they will go wrong
the end is getting closer
day by day)
In shades of grey
We're doomed to face the night
Light's out of sight

Since we've reached the point of no return
We pray for starlight
We wait for the moon
The sky is empty
Alone in the unknown
We're getting nowhere

We have been betrayed by the wind and the rain
The sacred hall's empty and cold
The sacrifice made should not be done in vain
Revenge will be taken by Rome

We live a lie under the dying moon
Pale faced laughs doom
Indulges in delight

It's getting out of hand
The final curtain will fall

Hear my voice!
There is no choice!
There's no way out!
You'll find out!

We don't regret it
So many men have failed
But now he's gone
Go out and get it
The madman's head it shall be thyne
We don't regret it
That someone else dies hidden in disguise
Go out and get it
Orion's hound shines bright

Don't you think it's time to stop
The chase around the ring
Just stop running, running
Round the ring
Don't you know that fate has been
Decided
By the gods
Feel the distance
Distance
Out of reach

Welcome to the end
Watch your step, Cassandra
You may fall
As I've stumbled on the field
(Sister mine
Death's a certain thing)
Find myself in darkest places
Find myself drifting away
And the otherworld
The otherworld appears

Find myself side she dies in vain
I cannot be freed
I'm falling down
As time runs faster
Moves towards disaster
The ferryman will wait for you my dear

And then there was silence
Just a voice from the otherworld
Like a leaf in an icy world
Memories will fade

[Chorus]
Misty tales and poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of Death I will smile
It's the triumph of shame and disease
Iliad
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the way
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright

The newborn child would carry ruin to the hall
The newborn's death will be a blessing to us all

Good choice?
Bad choice?
Out of three
You've chosen misery
Power and wisdom you deny
(Bad choice, Bad choice)

War is the only answer
When love will conquer fear
So the judgement's been made
To the fairest the graceful says
Badly he fails

Warning!
Feel the heat of passion father king
(Don't let him in, don't let her in)
Desire, lust, obsession -
Death - they'll bring
We can't get out once they are in

She's like the sunrise
Outshines the moon at night
Precious like starlight
She'll bring in a murderous prize

In darkness grows the seed of man's defeat
Jealousy!

I can clearly see the end now! [x3]

The thread of life is spun
The coin's been placed below my tongue

Never give up
Never give in
Be on our side
So we can win
Never give up
Never give in
Be on our side

Old moon's time is soon to come

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nothing to lose
Like one we'll stand
We'll face the storm
Created by a man

Troy! Troy! Troy! Troy! [Continued in background]

And as the lion slaughters man
I am the wolf and you're the lamb

Hallowed Troy shall fall
Round the walls
Faith is shattered bodies fall

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nothing to lose
Like one we'll stand
It's all for one and
One for
All
We live for will be wiped out

I feel that something's wrong
Surprise, surprise they're gone

Full moon your time goes by
And new moon still kept out of sight
We live - we die

[Chorus]
Misty tales and poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of Death I will smile
It's the triumph of shame and disease
Iliad
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the way
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright

Roam in Darkness [x6]
(Spread the vision)
(We will be lost if you truly believe)
- Troy in Darkness
There's a cold emptiness in our
hearts
That they've gone away
And wont come back

They'll tear down the wall to bring it in
They'll truly believe in the lie (Lie! Lie!)
With blossoms they'll welcome the
Old foe

The vision's so clear
When day and dream unite
The end is near
You better be prepared

Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
The nightmare shall be over now
There's nothing more to fear
Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
Come join in our singing
And dance with us now
Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
The nightmare shall be over now
There's nothing more to fear
Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
The war it is over forevermore

No hope
The blind leads the blind
Carry on
Though future's denied
Mare or stallion
There's far more inside
We are in at the kill
We'll cheerfully die

[Chorus]
Misty tales and poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of death I will smile
It's the triumph of shame and disease
Iliad

Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the way
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright

Its holy light shines on

So the judgement's been made
We're condemned though the trial's
Far ahead
The crack of doom
Father
Your handsome son is heading home

Still the wind blows
Calm and silent
Carries news from a distant shore [x4]
(Heading home!) [x2]

Out of mind
Can't get it
Can't get it out of my head [x4]back to top
Mies del Dolor
Ella partió
Y el bosque durmió
La doncella nunca volverá

El sello del olvido se ha roto
Y en pecado un amor tornará

Nuestra vida sola baila
Esperanza gritos cubrirá
La verdad en el pasado
Sueños mentiras mostrarán
La noche vendrá
Dolor quedará

De repente todo se aclaró
La venda de los ojos cayó

Sus ojos cerró
Y mi nombre gritó
Ella nunca nunca mas fue vuelta
A ver

Mies del dolor
Tu fruto creció
En helada tierra de pesar
Cuando muera la luz
La noche invernal
Vendrá

Ella partió
Y yo pierdo la fe
Mis heridas no podrán sanar

Traeré al ocaso
Pese a que seré burlado yo
Por la vida y el juicio final

Amanece en la vida y sé
Que pronto todo pasará
Y enfrento las sombras de pie en soledad

Mies del dolor
Tu fruto creció
En helada tierra de pesar
