1. Over The Hills And Far Away

They came for him one winter”s night.Arrested, he was bound.They said there”d been a robbery,his pistol had been found.They marched him to the station house,he waited for the dawn.And as they led him to the dock,he knew that he”d been wronged.”You stand accused of robbery,”he heard the bailiff say.He knew without an alibi,tomorrow”s light would mourn his freedom.Over the hills and far away,for ten long years he”ll count the days.Over the mountains and the seas,a prisoner”s life for him there”ll be.He knew that it would cost him dear,but yet he dare not say.Where he had been that fateful night,a secret it must stay.He had to fight back tears of rage.His heart beat like a drum.For with the wife of his best friend,he spent his final night of freedom.Over the hills and far away,he swears he will return one day.Far from the mountains and the seas,back in her arms he swears he”ll be.Over the hills and far away.Over the hills and,over the hills and,over the hills and far away.Each night within his prison cell,he looks out through the bars.He reads the letters that she wrote.One day he”ll know the taste of freedom.Over the hills and far away,she prays he will return one day.As sure as the rivers reach the seas,back in his arms he swears she”ll be.Over the hills and far away,he swears he will return one day.Far from the mountains and the seas,back in her arms he swears he”ll be.Over the hills and far away,she prays he will return one day.As sure as the rivers reach the seas,back in his arms is where she”ll be.Over the hills,over the hills and far away.Over the hills,over the hills and far away.

2. Tenth Man Down

Today I killed, he was just a boyEight before him, I knew them allIn the fields a dying oath…I”d kill them all to save my ownCut me free, Bleed with me, Oh noOne by one, We will fall, down downPull the plug, End the pain, Run”n fight for lifeHold on tight, this ain”t my fightDeliver me from this warIt”s not for me it”s because of youDevil”s instant my eternityObey to kill to save yourselfCut me free …”I envy the 9 lives that gave me hellMy path made up by their torn bodiesMan to man, soldier to soldier, dust to dustCall me a coward but I can”t take it anymore”They wait for me back homeThe live with eyes turned awayThey were the first ones to seeThey are the last ones to bleed”The ultimate high as all beautiful diesA ruler”s tool, priest”s excuse, tyrant”s delight…I alone, the great white hunterI”ll march till the dawn brings me rest10th patriot at the gallow”s pole!”Cut me free …

3. Away

The days were brighterGardens more bloomingThe nights had more hopeIn their silence The wild was callingWishes were whisperingThe time was thereBut without a meaningAway, away in timeEvery dream”s a journey awayAway to a home away from careEverywhere”s just a journey awayThe days departedGardens desertedThis frail worldMy only rest?The wild calls no moreWishes so hollowThe Barefoot Boyweeping in an empty nightAway …Cherish the momentTower the skiesDon”t let the dreamerfade to grey like grassNo falling for lifeA gain for every lossTime gathered meBut kept me flying”For this gift of dream I must pay the pricewith the loss of life”s pleasures”

4. Astral Romance

A nocturnal concertoCandlelight whispers me where to goHymn of gathering stars as my guideWhile I wander on this path of the nightEmbroidery of the starsUndress my feelings for this earthSend me your salva to heal my scarsAnd let this nakedness me my birthMacrocosm poured its powers on meAnd the hopes of this world I now must leaveThe nightwish I sent you centuries agoHas been heard by those who dwelled in a woeThe distance of our bridal bedAwait for me to be deadDust of the galaxies take my handLead me to my beloved”s land”This constant longing for your touchThis bitter ocean of hatred and painThis loneliness I need to be who I am””The oceans are as lone as ISomebody take away this gift of mineNo charisma for the beast!But still I love you forevermore””Come to meDeliver me from youAnd from all the days of the Earth”No last words to sayOnly memories remainA farewell then, my path goes forever on
