Heaven's Gate

Lyrics

1. Crusader
let it go, give up the starlanes, it’s the final frontierwe have come, out of the embers, we have come to conquer
another chance, a new beginning, no turning back nowwho we are, yet undecided, time to create now
set our hearts alight, for the stars we flyone of us will be the saviourand our souls will fly, hope will never diein the heart of this crusader
we are lost, the unforgiven, brought a world to ruincrucified, still without penance, a universe of martyrs
day by day, memories fading, of what used to bein our dreams it is still living, and we fight for the memory
set our hearts alight, for the stars we flyone of us will be the saviourand our souls will fly, hope will never diein the heart of this crusader
set our hearts alight, for the stars we flyone of us will be the saviourand our souls will fly, hope will never diein the heart of this crusader
in the heart of this crusaderin the heart of this crusader
2. Heart of the Sun
since the womb I grew too fast, days of childhood wouldn’t lastand I shed my tears in vain
solve the mystery, hope of man, I don’t want to but I canand I shed my tears in vain
in the sea of photonsI’ll be waiting till eternity finds mealone in the heart of the sun
I am far away from home, for eternity aloneand I shed my tears in vain
mind was young but body died, among particles I lieout of tears to shed in vain
in the sea of photonsI’ll be waiting till eternity finds mealone in the heart of the sunfor forever moreI’ll be your guide, I’ll be your shepherdbut I’m lost in the dying heart of the sun
all you ever wanted towas make my life mean more to youI’m alive but I’m alone
in the sea of photonsI’ll be waiting till eternity finds mealone in the heart of the sunfor forever moreI’ll be your guide, I’ll be your shepherdbut I’m lost in the dying heart of the sun
3. Requiem for the Light
ten million tons of steel, hurled across the skyour final sleeper ship, none left to say goodbyefor all our wisdom couldn’t save her from the nightnow hear our children sing their requiem for the light
I wanna stop the wheels of time, I need it, I want itthe light that gives me life again
ten thousand years in space we slept across the darktowards a burning star we sailed a gliding arkbut soon we had to journey back into the nightand hear our children sing their requiem for the light
I wanna stop the wheels of time, I need it, I want itthe light that gives me life again
can you feel her burning love,mother of all life, blazing glory from above
a requiem for the light
far too old and far too young, behold another fading sungaze with hope into the sky, but know that all our stars will diethe eternal night we must survive
I wanna stop the wheels of time, I need it, I want itthe light that gives me life again
4. Heaven's Gate
don’t you fear the turning tides, all is endingon the cosmic strings we ride, never ending
once from out of depths of time, we were risingonce again, time after timethere will be another dawn
now before the gate we standwaiting for the last commandsilver trumpets callwelcomes us home
on a lonely globe in space, all is endingbut i will see this place againthere will be another dawn
now before the gate we standwaiting for the last commandsilver trumpets callwelcomes us home
so before the gate we falland the longing is no moreanother journey’s overwelcome home
now before the gate we standwaiting for the last commandsilver trumpets callwelcomes us home
so before the gate we falland the longing is no moreanother journey’s overwelcome home
5. Redshift
so we’re leaving you behindfootprints on your shoreswashed away forever more
looking at you one last timeas the wheel of heaven turnswe are never to return
I see it in your eyes as the sky draws your gazedid you get to say goodbyedid you see her sad face
now we’re leaving her behindnothing stays the samenever to touch this ground again
I see it in your eyes as the sky draws your gazedid you get to say goodbyedid you see her sad face
the planet below will soon disappear into spaceand now when you close your eyesyou will see us falling away
I see it in your eyes as the sky draws your gazedid you get to say goodbyedid you see her sad face
the planet below will soon disappear into spaceand now when you close your eyesyou will see us falling awayand now when you close your eyesyou will see us falling away
6. Salvation (Release Me)
out of the dark sky, the brightest light I’ve ever knownyou’re descending, a revelation to be shownand I know you, I feel that I’ve met you beforeon the borders, between this land and ever more
how can it be, I feel your thoughts inside my headcan you save me, or are you leaving me for dead
what do you wantcoming to take my life awayto release meyou’re in controlI couldn’t fight the will to stayso release me
into the dark sky, the blackest void is in my mindwe’re ascending, leaving all I know behindand I’m sure now, I know that I’ve met you beforeand I take your hand, this time will be forever more
what do you wantcoming to take my life awayto release meyou’re in controlI couldn’t fight the will to stayso release me
and I let it goand I let it go away
and I let it goand I let it go away
7. Sundancer
freelancer, you lived your life between the starssundancer, nothing could ever reach your heart
I flew the smuggling lanes through the border worlds at warrunning guns from all the freeports near the coremy fortune paid by all the souls of those who diedmy thirty coins of silver carried back with pride
I never understood the gears and wheels that turn beyondI always thought I would survive
freelancer, you lived your life between the starssundancer, nothing could ever reach your heart
and when the refugees of war turned to the skiesfleeing from their homes, from persecution and from liesI hunted rebels for a cruel and unjust lawno remorse, no guilt or pity, no matter what I saw
I could never comprehend how all of this would come to endI just thought I would survive
freelancer, you lived your life between the starssundancer, nothing could ever reach your heartstarlancer, how much hope did you betraysundancer, you should have dreamed your life away
I never understood the gears and wheels that turn beyondI always thought I would surviveI could never comprehend how all of this would come to endI just thought I would survive
freelancer, you lived your life between the starssundancer, nothing could ever reach your heartstarlancer, how much hope did you betraysundancer, you should have dreamed your life away

8. Prophecy
glowing embers of our pastmemories are fading fastwhere you came from, where you goI can never let you know
shadows on the castle wallsall stories that I knowmysteries of ancient timesare flowing in your blood
such things I could not believewords and stories, disbeliefin the light from a new sunI have sworn to tell no one
shadows on the castle wallsall stories that I knowmysteries of ancient timesare flowing in your blood
I live on in you foreverprophecy comes truesecrets lie so deepand are forever yours to keep
shadows on the castle wallsall stories that I knowmysteries of ancient timesare flowing in your blood
I live on in you foreverprophecy comes truesecrets lie so deepand are forever yours to keep
9. Beyond the Stars
there’s a voice inside me, a distant memoryI know I’ve lived before
the elder world has fallen, to an age of warsthe tide has turned again
by the mercy of our sins we live our livesin a world made of dreamsopen your eyesrelease your astral tiesand you will transcendbeyond the stars
I can hear the suffering, the hate insideand it pulls me to the ground
bleeding hands are trembling, can you forgiveis there courage to believe
by the mercy of our sins we live our livesin a world made of dreamsopen your eyesrelease your astral tiesand you will transcendbeyond the stars
10. Plains of Forever
I’m sleeping in darkness, I feel my mind shutting downa distance you can’t fathom, oceans of time and more
I ran off at random, to save all that we knowso I risked all and I lost all, but i found even more
all alone I hear your voice, inside my head so strong
in the cold embrace, in the deep of spacefar across the plains of foreverthere is no way home, I will die aloneI will slowly fall to forever
my memories in the thousands, now so little filters throughbut you’ll follow, this I know, this future waits for you
all alone I hear your voice, inside my head so strong
in the cold embrace, in the deep of spacefar across the plains of foreverthere is no way home, I will die aloneI will slowly fall to foreverand I feel you still, as my body chillsin eternal dreams I will hold youin a close embrace, in the deep of spacefar across the plains of forever
far across the plains of foreverfar across the plains of forever
