  1. New most favorite song EVER!

    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-

  3. 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
  4. "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.
