The Tower Lyrics

the tower

 

where do i go?

never had a very real dream before.

now i got a vision of an open door.

guiding me home, where i belong,

dreamland i have come.

oh where do i go?

never had a flesh and blood like this before.

got a new appearance when i passed the door.

is it a dream i am withing? oh what's going on?

down, down, down

go down, go down, go down

i roam into nowhere.

don't see an end: eternal wastelands.

and i hear the voice, the voice, the voice, the voice...

hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah...

never been a fighter,

neber been a man.

but i must help vandroiy, he's my only friend.

nowhere to go but i know that he knows how

we will get her out...

magic of transcendence

brought me to this place

vandroiy in reality lead me on my race.

told me to bring back the seal

but still i don't know where i shall go.

can't you 'feel' the voice?

you don't have a choice.

what a kind of life:

freedom in flesh - shackles on your mind...

go all the way to the tower!

find out the secrets behind!

go all the way to the tower!

for all the wisdom of ages doesn't die.

men have good intentions

on their way to the light.

but som of them are venal

and end up in the night.

maybe it's better for you, mankind,

not to know what's going on.

sometimes we must go

ways that seem to be wrong.

what a kind of life: freedom in flesh,

shackles on your mind...

go all the way to the tower!

find out the secrets behind!

go all the way to the tower!

find out the name of the one

who reigns from inside...

you have come the long way through ages

to bring me the seven parts of the seal.

so now throw it over the walls of the tower.

throw the seal!

but first godfather, what about the prophecy? what

about your reward: the ultimate illumination, the

gnosis and the power to defend your kingdom on

earth with a strong hand?

what about the prophecy?

i realize...

for the glory, for the glory, for the glory,

for the glory. oh - what is going on?

for the glory, for the glory, for the glory,

for the glory. oh - what is going on?

gabriel i can feel:

you have it back - book and seal.

still no war is won, we have just begun...

go all the way to the tower!

long for the secrets behind!

go all the way to the tower!

found out the name of the one

who reigns from inside...

go all the way to the tower!

long for the secrets behind!

go all the way to the tower!

found out the name of the one,

of the one...

oh, how could the stranger steal the seal away?

was it my fault?

 

or was it no one's fault at all?
