Ensiferum - From Afar

A raven came to me,
Spoke to me in my dream.
A long lost prophecy,
A forgotten legacy.

Echoes of yesterday,
Won't let these dreams fade away.
All the beauty I adored,
At the edge of the world.

Across the universe,
Time is to be reversed.
No shelter can be found,
To this fate, we are bound!

Behold the final hour,
The last times will be dour.
All life falls into gorge
Of the end of the world!

"Burning skies
On the vengeances night.
Devastating scythe,
Of the ancient Light."

I saw the might,
Of the ancient Light!
And the beauty of the perishing world,
There's no tomorrow.
We have been warned.

"The sky's bird struck fire,
Made a flame flare up.
The north wind burnt the clearing.
The north-east quite consumed it:
It burnt all the trees to ash and reduced them to dust."

In this frozen moment two powers stare down each other
The wind begins to clamor against our backs, that is the -Sign-

Cutting through the silence they clash
Thunder!! Power Storm!
All things are pulled into the vortex of destiny

Piercing the darkness the light runs, faster than anyone
Hotter, fiercer, higher, gracefully dance!
Keep running down the road to victory!

※Rock Alright! We should
Be able to fly higher than anyone in this eternal sky
Rock Alright! Break through
Even space and time with this Speed
Light aflame our -Saga-

At this cliff to an alternate dimension two powers fight each other
A shadow sways at the edge of our breath

This moment you raise your sword sparks fly
Thunder! Power Sword!!
Leave it all to fate

When the moon is full become a beast and unleash the blade
Powerfully, proudly and gracefully
Soar high into this warring sky

Rock Alright! Always, we want to protect this planet
With endless love
Rock Alright! Even the future
Embrace it all and with Speed
Break through -Saga-

What is this, an evil church?
People deceived upon the Earth,
Sundays prayer has lost the truth,
Will we dare to live the truth?
What I see is a serpent hiss,
Congration makes the list,
Pass around your money plates
Gather' round to fill the date

Welcome to the church of lies
Doves will die,
A priest will cry,
Man will tithe
Welcome to the church of lies

Chalice of blood,
Waits to fill us,
Chalice of blood

Unfaithful priest an evil man,
Mark of death fills his hand,
Black and white turn to grey,
In blaspheme he will pray,
Deceived by religion he will see,
Run in panic you will flee,
Out of heaven he will fall,
Fame to riches says it all,

Welcome to the church of lies
Doves will die,
A priest will cry,
Man will tithe
Welcome to the church of lies

Chalice of blood,
Waits to fill us,
Chalice of blood

Talk in tongues out of mind,
Is this truth you will find?
The evil ways is lose control,
Satan's laugh will be your toll,
Church of god lives in sin,
Gathers up all of men,
Out of good we're still in fright,
We all must live to see the light

Chalice of blood,
Waits to fill us,
Chalice of blood
You're welcome to church of lies
"I heard a puff I heard a blow
I felt the ground I felt the snow
Thought of linen and of lace
I never really saw his face
I heard a grunt I heard a moan
I felt the sun
I saw the moon
I saw the northern light above and the eclipse of the sun
I am a breath I am a wish
I am a rocket and a fish
I felt his measures and his weight
My own body as a scale
I heard a whisper in my ear
"You are not here. You are not here."
I saw the northern light above and the eclipse of the sun
My feet was hurt and heals were sore
And I wondered why it burned
And I wondered why it burned...

Then I had to climb down
I went down to see the sun rise
And then I had to climb back up again
I had to be there to see the sun rise
All the air that you sent to guide me had a tone of elephant gray
We were all there in the morning
We were there and we wanted to stay
We were there and we wanted to stay."

Song - Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

Vocals by the legendary Bruce Dickinson

Hear the rime of the Ancient Mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerises one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen to the nightmares
of the Sea

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and
the Mariner tells his tale.

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice
To a place where nobody's been
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross
Hailed in God's name,
hoping good luck it brings.

And the ship sails on, back to the North
Through the fog and ice and
the albatross follows on

The mariner kills the bird of good omen
His shipmates cry against what he's done
But when the fog clears, they justify him
And make themselves a part of the crime.

Sailing on and on and North across the sea
Sailing on and on and North 'till all is calm

The albatross begins with its vengeance
A terrible curse a thirst has begun
His shipmates blame bad luck on the Mariner
About his neck, the dead bird is hung.

And the curse goes on and on and on at sea
And the thirst goes on and on for them and me

"Day after day, day after day,
we stuck nor breath nor motion
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
Water, water everywhere and
all the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink."


There, calls the mariner
there comes a ship over the line
But how can she sail with no wind
in her sails and no tide.

See... onward she comes
Onwards she nears, out of the sun
See... she has no crew
She has no life, wait but there's two

Death and she Life in Death,
they throw their dice for the crew
She wins the Mariner and he belongs to her now.
Then ... crew one by one
They drop down dead, two hundred men
She... She, Life in Death.
She lets him live, her chosen one.

"One after one by the star dogged moon,
too quick for groan or sigh
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
and cursed me with his eye
Four times fifty living men
(and I heard nor sigh nor groan),
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
they dropped down one by one."


The curse it lives on in their eyes
The Mariner he wished he'd die
Along with the sea creatures
But they lived on, so did he.

And by the light of the moon
He prays for their beauty not doom
With heart he blesses them
God's creatures all of them too.

Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the Sea
Then down in falls comes the rain.

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
See them stir and they start to rise
Bodies lifted by good spirits
None of them speak
and they're lifeless in their eyes

And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on.

Now the curse is finally lifted
And the Mariner sights his home
Spirits go from the long dead bodies
Form their own light and
the Mariner's left alone

And then a boat came sailing towards him
It was a joy he could not believe
The Pilot's boat, his son and the hermit
Penance of life will fall onto Him.

And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea
And the hermit shrives the mariner of his sins

The Mariner's bound to tell of his story
To tell his tale wherever he goes
To teach God's word by his own example
That we must love all things that God made.

And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man
And the tale goes on and on and on.
My papa used to recite that poem to me to put me down for naps!
