all Candlemass lyrics

I'm sitting here alone in darkness
waiting to be free,
Lonely and forlorn I'm crying
I long for my time to come
death means just life
Please let me die in solitude

Hate is my only friend
pain is my father
torment is delight to me
Death is my sanctuary
I seek it with pleasure
Please let me die in solitude

Receive my sacrifice
my lifeblood is exhausted
no one gave love and understanding
Hear these words
vilifiers and pretenders
and please let me die in solitude
Earth to earth
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dustback to top
Demons Gate
Beyond all nightmares I met my fate
an ancient passage surrounded by hate
scared I was with my hand on my cross
I went into the demons gate
Across the Styx among the mists of Hades
a gate of stones marks the path
to soul's damnation and hell's wrath

Ancient evil is awaiting there
at the doorstep to hell
within it's darkness the demons dwell
From the dark age the passage hail
created by witchcraft and hate
where every sinner will meet his fate

The place is cursed by the hands of doom
unholy powers in reign
the devil's paradise of pain
Approach !
The Eibon opens for you
the choirs of damnation, call you on through
The twilight possesses, the heart of your soul
the starlight is fading to black, into the
Demons gateback to top
Crystal Ball
Black heart, your soul is min
gaze into and the secrets you'll find
Just read the signs

Gaze into the crystal
See what it tells
It can bring you all fortune
do you so well
Visions and dreams you can see in the
Crystal ball

I saw the rainbows end
I am raptured I cannot pretend
I have found Atlantis
alisman of Seth
I have seen it all
dreamt away through the crystal ball
Tell me more I want to know
please hear my callback to top
Black Stone Wielder
The rain kept on falling
and darkened the sky
the dawn was to come with the sunrise
Revealing the shadows
that passed through the mist
the torchlight was flickering, the storm
was chasing them on

A procession of dark coats
followed the star
foretold to come since ages
In silence they walked on
Crossing the lands
On their way to Bethlehem, to break the
chains of the spell
Stone, they worshipped the stone
In generation from father to son
A star, a star is to come
to light them way to the one who is born
The leader he knelt there
to greet the newborn
holding his pendant before him
Teardrops were falling from his eyes as he said

Take this stone and use it well don't do as I did long ago

Into the sundown he returned
the moon was rising and heaven burned
like shadows disappeared the men
and the black stone wielders were never seen again
Stone, they wielded the stone
In generation from father to son
A star, a star is to come
and light them the way to the one who is born

They came across the western sea
with powers greater than needed
The wizards commanded the lightning
every creature knelt in for their will
But they wielded the black stone with evil
and their evil was cast back on them
condamned to praise god forever
'til his son was born to deliverback to top
Under The Oak
...Deep was my anguish infor these words
they froze my blood and changed my soul
the master has spoken, the truth, not any lies
The Devil gives and evil takes
the thing in life that man forsakes
a throne in hell, a price or a sacrifice ?
Still the wind was blowing soft
and gentle here under the oak
which gave me shelter and rest infor my trial
I'm not strong, weak is my mind
a new beginning, where to find ?
I'm the last one on earth, please forgive us our crime
It was a time, when love was mine
now it's time to sacrifice

My heart, bleeding for my race
the traces of mankind sweeped out
by the hand of our Lord
I cried for the ones I lost
Midnight in paradise, grief
away goes my hope
I cried for the ones I lost

Hear my prayers
Climbing on the clouds above
Silent cry
reach the inner halls of truth
Give me a sign !

A crimson sky, bless my eyes
Up goes the sun, my time has comeback to top
A Sorcerer's Pledge
Part I

Time stands still in these ancient halls
Only the castle itself can tell what it keeps
Dark are the secrets between these walls
hidden in shadows of death, while the sorcerer sleeps

Where is the morning
where is the sun
Thousand years of midnight
the sunrise is gone
An old man marked by a life so long

Is sleeping so sweet while his magic is growing so strong
Waiting still for new times to come
a thousands years to see if he has won

Where is the morning
where is the sun
A thousand years of midnight

the sunrise is gone
What has he done ?
Why is he sleeping so long ?
He wants to live for evermore

Soon is he young
n will he open his eyes ?
When he is strong enough to rule

Back in our time goes the legend
of a sorcerer so old
He drank the blood of the virgin to be reborn
Soon a tyrant will conquer
So spoke the wise
of the day when the sorcerer will rise

Blood is his wine
The sorcerer is cheating on time
and he'll be stronger than before

Cursed be the sun
the women will weep for his fun
In the name of his magic so strong

Part III
A thousand years have gone
Armageddon hasn't come
Only the cry of a child echoes in the dark
wards goes time
as the stars are passing by
and nothing remains of this foolishman except his fateback to top
