EYE OF THE WATCHER (Instrumental)

RAVAGE
Walking through the fire at night,
She cries for him,
Gives her love to anyone,
Who dreams like him.
In the Paris night your child screams for horizons,
Dies on the floor.
And with her serpent eyes she gives her love away.
She gives her love away.

Surround her with colours red and white, blue light.
Surround her with angels red in pale moonlight.

Coming through the waves and thunder,
Burns her eyes.
Walking over blood on the ground,
Her arms are tied.
In the moonlight Paris night, she hopes it's over,
Dies on the floor.
And with her serpent eyes she gives her love away.
She gives her love away.

His screams pull her to the window,
Hides her smile.
Falling to her knees she prays for them to come.
In the fire filled Paris night she bids the world goodbye,
Dies on the floor, And with her serpent eyes

UNINVITED GUEST
I walk with the Devil hand in hand through the dark clouds of sorrow, Run with the dogs of my design.
Purgatory. Alone.
Descend into despair, infesting my soul,
He climbs inside this host, Into the darkest depths I go.
Pulls me down.

He'll come inside my heart tonight,
Come inside and drain my life,
My need to remain is fading fast.
He'll come inside my heart tonight,
Come inside and drain my life,
In Hell, in this Hell with you.

When I close my eyes he stares cold back at me,
Drags me down, rapes and enters me,
An ocean of blood, a sea of regret,
The grieving knife cuts through me, It's the sole release I get.
Possessing me.
Chorus. .First verse. Chorus.

THE HAUNTING
From the tidal waves that scream she comes through,
The woman in white riding the sky.
Laid me down on hallowed ground,
Gave her chains to me,
Places I've never seen, Things I've never been.

Give yourself to me, haunted by her effigy,
Bearing down on me, blinded by her legacy
Give your soul to me, haunted by her effigy,
Through the wind, she comes to me.

Annexed, misgiven girl, the angel of the sea,
Surrounded by fragile words and promises she never means,
She took my fears, forgave my tears, threw away her seven years,
And heaven's not so bright, as she came to me that night.

Give yourself to me, haunted by her effigy,
Bearing down on me, blinded by her legacy
Give your soul to me, haunted by her effigy,
Through the wind, she comes to me.

I ran into the shadows bleeding,
the shadows I hide in, it's always the same,
And the shame gripping tight to the skin of the sin,
For the second they love you, the first that you kill.
The sea comes and calls her from death into light,
Leaving me facing the blade of her night,
Summoning my soul again, whispering her dark refrain

Give yourself to me, haunted by her effigy,
Bearing down on me, blinded by her legacy
Give your soul to me, haunted by her effigy,
Through the wind, she comes to me.

INTO THE NIGHT
The mist surrounds me as I hide and wait alone,
With the ghost of your forgiveness, The skin and bone.
Giving into my disease, it's taking far too long,
As the isolation slips away, Something is killing you.

Into the darkness, into the night,
Into the shadows, Between death, between life.
Into the darkness, into the night, I dare you to decide.

Tomorrow comes too soon, While I'm burning down the past,
Break the circle, break the glass, And the fear takes hold.
Ashes to ashes, forever and again,
Till you decide if what you want, Is what you really need.

Into the darkness, into the night,
Into the shadows, Between death, between life.
Into the darkness, into the night, I dare you to decide.

THE PASSING
Of Heaven and of Hell,
She was broken down and held inside the Earth,
Her body veiled in fear.
Through the sky The howling wind, break her wings
Her life before her eyes

Weighed down her colors shining,
Waves drown her crimson heart.
Inside her graven cell,
Rising to higher ground.

And she's passing to another world.
Gone away.

The secrets she could tell
A halo falls around her ashen face
As darkness turns to light
Into the night As sadness calls the angels lift her up
My blood runs through her veins

Weighed down her colors shining,
Waves drown her crimson heart.
Inside her graven cell,
Rising to higher ground.

And she's passing to another world.
Gone away.

"You made us for yourself,
And our hearts find no peace,
Until they rest in you."


The passing of her life The yearning for another night
Take away her soul
Kiss goodbye With flowers for her empty grave
Of heaven and of hell
And she's passing to the other world

"You made us for yourself..." taken from "Confessions" by St. Augustine, 4 Century A.D.

GRAVEYARD SHIFT
Well don't look back,
Because he'll take away his promises,
Like he took away the light.
And tomorrow, You'll be hanging from the ceiling,
Chained and bleeding to his book of love.

Don't go inside, of the graveyard shift, tonight.

Can't you see,
All the shadows hanging over,
As your world turns from stone to dust.
Still you'll try,
To keep your sanctuary secret,
But tonight will never see the dawn

Don't go inside, of the graveyard shift, tonight.

Hanging on the edge of eternity,
As I give to you me, give unto me.
And running through the dark, I see your shining light,
Another dream for you.

He'll steal your soul,
And give you to the chosen ones,
The price you pay for another way.
But tonight, you'll be running to the desolation,
And tomorrow's just a kiss away

Don't go inside, of the graveyard shift, tonight.

THE HUNGER *
Follow me into the night,
I'll take you there, lay down your life.
Forget about the other days,
The darker times the shades of grey.
Through the glass embrace I'll come to you,
Take your sleep and bring you through,
To another side of life, you see,
You are mine eternally

Higher than the stars the sky,
The hunger burns for you.
Sleep my child, you'll never die,
The hunger burns for you.

Follow me to the open doors,
Kiss and bleed, the sounds come cutting,
Just ask and you can have it all,
"With Dog and Dame" And the next to fall.
In the shadow's hold I will arrive,
Take your veil and give you life,
A kiss of death,
your wedding dress,
Your love, my love, I now possess.

You see,
The way it's meant to be sometimes.
God knows. It's hard, but I have faith so put your faith in mine.
And the sun will shine for you.
And I will make you mine.

Higher than the stars the sky,
The hunger burns for you.
Sleep my child, you'll never die,
The hunger burns for you.

You see, The way it's got to be sometimes.
God knows. It's hard, but I have so put your faith in mine.
And the sun won't shine for you.
Somehow, you won't mind.

Higher than the stars the sky,
The hunger burns for you.
Sleep my child, you'll never die,
The hunger burns for you.

INVOCATION
The children running to the end of time,
Can't escape the wolf.
Hanging on, beaten down,
Look into the sensaround. Their eyes,
The Devils at the door.
She's coming through the night,
Into a memory long gone.
She speaks like she don't understand,
Where she's been since time began.

And the spell can't be broken, Till she's awoken in the invocation's eyes.
