Armies have conquered
And fallen in the end
Kingdoms have risen
Then buried by sand
The Earth is our mother
She gives and she takes
She puts us to sleep and
In her light we'll awake
We'll all be forgotten
There's no endless fame
But everything we do
Is never in vain

On behalf of her love
She no longer sleeps
Life no longer had meaning
Nothing to make her stay
She sold her soul away

These are the darkest clouds
To have surrounded me
Now I find my self alone caught in a cage
There's no flower to be found in here
Not withering
Or pale to me
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside

In my hands
A legacy of memories
I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell ?

When leaves have fallen
And skies turned into grey
The night keeps on closing in on the day
A nightingale sings his song of farewell
You better hide for her freezing hell

Take away
These hands of darkness
Reaching for my soul
Now, the cold wind,
blows out my candles
only fear,
without any hope

Cold are the bones of thy soldiers
Longing for home, their little paradise
I don't feel redemption on their side

Fallen from grace, help me rise again
Fallen from grace, help me through

The shadows of the night,
are unleased again
Where their greed begins,
the end is near
A morbid hunger for blood,
lies in their cold black eyes
They've come to take our lives away
