Dark Lyrics


1. Burning Skies

In the dead of the night the sirens they cried
Waking up the world for the deadly sight
What happened in the darkness calm
They said that the air had turned to death’s lair
Two giant eagles without a care
Now watch out for the oncoming storm

The seven plagues came raining down, there was no place to flee
In darkest pain I watched my brother die
My family lay in their blood, pure horror I did see
The terror that came out of the sky

Beneath burning skies we’re running for our lives
Never will our days be the same
When flashes light the sky man and child will die
Watch out – the skies are aflame

What happened there high up in the air
No one could tell in their voice of despair
When the eagles had met in the night
Death to our world, they brought pain and hurt
Masters of evil by hellish winds stirred
What an unbearable sight

When the darkness of the night burned bright as the sun
Mercilessly death knocked on our door
Among the ruins I now stand, the last remaining one
The wound will pierce my heart forevermore

[Music & Lyrics: Till Oberboßel]

2. Priests Of War

A holy war is what you’d fight, you’d be the chosen one
Bringing peace to all the lands, but all I see is misery now
Who do you think that you are, a man or man made god
Deaf to all the words of warning, treachery works always somehow

Down glory road you rode in triumph in the name of liberty
You came to bring them peace and life and free these lands from all their sorrow
Fires burning to the sky, the monuments you gave the land
And if its children die today their fathers will love you tomorrow

And you can never feel a thing so far away
And you will never see until your dying day

Priests of war – tell me what is it for
For peace we yearned, you never learned
And now the fires of hate grow evermore
Priests of war – the black oath has been sworn
And in the darkest clouds of night
I see your death be born

How do you now sleep these days, how do you dream at night
Do you ever feel remorse for all the lies that you were telling
Not too long we will be waiting, not too long your reign will last
One of these days you’ll be pleased to meet the Coalition of the Killing

Don’t you know things in life ain’t always what they seem
Your victims’ funeral march shall be your dying scream

It matters not where you’ll be hiding
It matters not how long we’ll search
The price will be paid
You’ll pay with your hollow soul

[Music & Lyrics: Till Oberboßel]

3. The Mask Of Sorrow

Again the sun has risen and another day is born
To you it doesn’t matter, all hope is long forlorn
For you there is no life outside these four white walls
So spend all of your days decaying in your husband’s halls

So you hide – for the veil of black conceals your eyes
Behind the mask of sorrow nobody sees your face
Every day and every night abandoned from the light
Wear the mask of sorrow till the end of your days

The days go by like years, you lost count long ago
A life within a world that nobody must know
A sacrifice fed to the beasts, contempt in every word
You’ve told your god a hundred times but has he ever heard

Sometimes when night has fallen you think of that day
When you can’t take it any more and you will run away
Don’t you know there’s no way you ever will be free
You will be found and killed for the honour of your family
So better close your eyes and keep this dream a dream

So you hide behind the mask of sorrow
So you hide beneath the veil of black

[Music: Kosma Banika]
[Lyrics: Till Oberboßel]

4. Angel Of Fire

The town is a peaceful place down by the sea
No strife has been known for the past century
Now the children are hungry and homeless again
And a way to escape’s out of sight

High above the place where the young ones must bleed
A castle of ancient stands without defeat
Its walls keep a fearless warrior queen
Her heart lives, her soul breathes for the fight

Her hair born of flames, her heart forged of fire
Avenger of dark souls in need
Till time takes her life she’ll challenge the gods
And keep fighting for those who believe

Angel of fire, warrior of light
Challenge her power and sword if you dare
Angel of fire forever will fight
Death awaits those who step into her lair

For years and for centuries the legions of night
They besieged the castle, tried to steal the light
They brought fear and darkness to land, air and sea
But never could take down the walls
Where so long ago ancient free tribes did dwell
Shall never be turned into slavedriver’s hell
The angel of fire in her ragged armour
Forever will reign in these halls

With hair born of flames and heart forged of fire
She’ll wield her sword for the forlorn
Until the day salvation comes to these lands
And justice anew will be born

The story is told and the time has passed long
What remains is glory of tale and of song
The warrior queen has been laid to her grave
And honour and truth now prevail
The castle of seafaring heroes still stands
To tell of the heroine and guard well the lands
And should the great shadow of fear rise again
Our firequeen again we will hail

When children are crying in hunger and fear
And four horsemen pillage the land
With hair born of flames and heart forged of fire
The swordwielding angel will stand

[Music & Lyrics: Till Oberboßel]

5. Late At Night

Late at night I’m on the road again
Hit the gas and here I go through fire, wind and rain
I know I’ve been drinking but I guess that’s okay
Talk to me like you want, I won’t care what you say

Speeding down the freeway, my mind’s on overload
Give me just one last drink and I’m ready to explode
I can’t bear your complaining so stop your fairytales
I’ve done it many times before and never did I fail

What you see – cannot be – now’s the time – see the signs
It’s too late – caught by fate – too far gone – carry on
Who’s to blame – all the same – in the street – of deceit
Now it’s through – pay your dues – I have died – late at night

Feels so good to be alive, let us celebrate
I’ll see every sudden curve before it is too late
Won’t you stop your bitching, the gas down to the floor
Late at night out on the streets death knocks on your car door

Speeding faster than the light of burning gasoline
Disappearing in the night by angels never seen
Drank too much and drove too fast, now you have sold your soul
Miserable life ends wrapped around a concrete pole

Life’s not always what you see
Things you thought that cannot be
All denied but now’s the time
It’s tonight you’ll see the signs
Pray for mercy, it’s too late
Soon you will be caught by fate
Dared too much, you’re too far gone
Never you will carry on

You’ll complain but who’s to blame
In the end we’re all the same
End your life down in the street
All your thoughts full of deceit
Chances taken, now it’s through
In the end you’ll pay your dues
Who will cry when I have died
Death comes knocking late at night

[Music: Heinrich Greiner / Christian Flindt / Markus Weitzel]
[Lyrics: Till Oberboßel]

6. Northern Son

The saddest day for all the world came in the Moon of Mead
When the heart of Nordland’s ever greatest son did cease to beat
The hordes gathered throughout the lands, fell to their knees in grief
And cried a thousand tears in agony and disbelief

Oh bitter came the mourning times, the sun gives no more light
For one who meant the world to me has passed into the night
So hordes of warriors in the world, this requiem be sung
For Nordland’s greatest warrior that died so very young

Forever be thy name remembered far and wide
The thirteen candles burn for you like for all those who died
The hall up high may welcome you, through blood by thunder ride
And on your quest for timeless life Valkyries be your guide

A burning ship of lifeless glory, to nowhere it must sail
I raise the horn and drink to thee, loud be called out thy hail
And though we know that life can’t last, all men must die the same
I know one thing which never dies, the honour of thy name

Valhalla’s gates now open wide for northern son
Now sits by the side of fathers long time gone
Called way up high by gods of thunder, wind and rain
You are in our hearts and ever will remain

The blood on ice is frozen in the home of those once brave
Under the runes the wheel of sun, a call from out (of) the grave
The wind of mayhem brings on day of wrath the dragon’s breath
The reaper sings an ode of war and blood and fire and death

When blood and soul on Vinland’s blooded shore have turned to grey
By the lake of fire the mourner’s clad in black in Asa Bay
And bearers of a hammerheart know when this world is gone
After his death they’ll see the resurrection of the northern son

And wherever I may ride I know you’re always there
And in the thick of fray and fight I know you’re always there
Into the dark the hammerheart shall send a shining light
So let this song of hail to you ring loud into the night

Valhalla’s gates now open wide for northern son
Now sits by the side of fathers long time gone
Forever in my heart your spirit will remain
And in the hall of fallen ones we’ll meet again

[Music & Lyrics: Till Oberboßel]
