Track Name: Overture
[Instrumental]
Track Name: The Meeting
The day has come to carry two hearts
Of Luis and Anna where love will start
And the meeting declared the birth of a man
A handsome knight with a heart like a saint

Showing power, while his shadow fall off
As he found his way through the crowd
To face Anna in the party that night
Sky blessed colliding them in love

Closer and closer they've been
Dancing and dancing as the orchestra plays
Closer and closer they've been
Dancing and dancing as the orchestra plays

He carried her upon his wing and fly to the moon
Where love is real and romance is pure
and said
Anna I love you how I wish to hide you
In my heart you made me feel the truth

She was wearing a crimson ring
Her magical eyes made a shine on her face
Their dance has taken them to a ride on the wind
Noise of the crowd covered by their laughter

A glazed look from deep inside her eyes
Took Luis away to an endless journey
A ride to reveal the depth of eternity

Closer and closer they've been
Dancing and dancing as the orchestra plays
Closer and closer they've been
Dancing and dancing as the orchestra plays

Those Dark eyes were gazing
An evil mind scene, drawing
Spreading his wings over every corner
Kiss in the wind that whispers murder

The dark moon painted the skies
Surrounded by Echoes from unknown places
Gravity in the air filled the fortress
Their love affair odyssey has started restless

Love is never ending story written by tears
That dropped from the eye of every lover
They did not realize that rules prevent them to stay
And may be the wind will blow against their faces

There's no time to stay
It's time for tears to drop and fade away
Track Name: Falcon and Crow
I - THE FALCON

When you need to find the truth
You will have to search for the light
But what if your soul has no value
And what if you have no rights
The Meaning of life
In this age of slavery
Castles and Lairs
Humiliated to stay alive
you're Selling your blood
While the falcons are drinking your cup

And the lord is the master
Reading his own Chapter
In the book of life
Written by himself

He is eating in a golden spoon
While a spouse offers a flower to his bride
Till when the child will cry
On his unseen father's tomb
When the flowers has wilted
And the father Died
The Meaning of life
In this age of slavery

A lord is equal to thousand
The child turning to slave in the alter
Growing under the hands of the master
And the lord is the master
Reading his own Chapter
In the book of life
Written by himself

II - THE CROW

Flying around, searching for his victim
To grab him to his lord, and turn to be his food
Staring as a crow in his black dress he's lifting
Trying to catch an only little wrong move

The crow was watching the spirit of love
Taking his way through the two young hearts
But that can't be done in the falcon's book of life

A thousand evil flames turning around his eyes
Dark ignoble thoughts has knitted for the knight
His black wings bit the falcon's head so long
Made him believe, sin will follow his name

And that relationship will lead him down to blame
And all that it will bring, it will bring the shame
So he took his new washed mind, to a journey of devil's dance
At last the falcon decided, "I want his head at once"
Track Name: Revolution
When honor lays wounded
And falcons are aiming
From distance we'll come
In freedom we're armed and our swords
With our blood till we have dignity

With every blowing wind
Spreading our wings
Flying away
Flying away
Sun shines over us
Sending its forces
Along the way
Along the way

It will be revolution
No one will suffer no more
The only solution
Is to play on the strings of the war
It will be revolution

Revenge has exploded
In their minds intended
And their children became
The hands of our glory
keep rising above their fathers spears

Our hero Luis pacified to the behaviour
Made up his mind to join the forces
Defeating the power of love
turned from an opera singer to a knight
walking on the edge where he's trying to
Face Anna's father for his only love

Women are waiting guarded in their homes
While soldiers are sharpening their metallic swords
The atmosphere of war is keeping us quiet in place
Ashes to ashes and dust to the dust

It will be revolution
No one will suffer no more
The only solution
Is to play on the strings of the war
It will be revolution
Track Name: Horses of Steel
Misery
Runway free, we are on our rebellion
We are riding the horses of steel
To find the reason for the peace of the world
Holding the armor of god runway free

I've been a knight of distant future
I've been the last of seven troopers
It's time for freedom and face the lord
I came here for the century war

A thousand knights left their homes
On top of the hill with high wind
Unknown places, unknown faces
Are they enemy, or brave strangers

Assassin from hell, spears from knights
Distant miles what kind of arena
It's getting hard to detect what I see

Images speaks louder than words
While the rainy spears covered the skies
we're under siege, we'll break the walls
We're riding the horses of steel

Weak shadows screaming in pain
Asking God to show mercy
Red cloudy skies above
Where nobles seek their faith
Holding their arms are great killers
And never stop the flame

We're running around where others laid dead
Hearing voices crying elsewhere
Still have the power to reach victory
Never surrender, better die peacefully

There's blood draining deep inside
That's too hard to weep away
I have no strength to stay awake
My head touched the ground, laid on her hands.
Track Name: Wounded
I opened my eyes under this holy ceiling
Back from my dream, drowned into the deep sea
It took my time away, I thought that I have died
They took my life away, and made my body tied

Then there was a merciful hand covering my face
She was Anna holding me like a mother
Whispering... You're not the only one who has honor
Anna, i thought that I've died
But when i saw you I felt the truth
And left all the fears behind

Feel my soul on the edge of time
My wounds are torturing me so hard
I think that I reached the end
And for the next generation my end will be their start
I don't want to die here, take me home take me home
To the place that I've born and grown

I want to be on stage again
For the last time in the place that I've born
On stage I ever dreamed to die

The angels are holding me
Gathered in Anna's hand
Like the birds they are always free

On stage take me home
It will witness my last stand
I don't want to die here
Wounded
Track Name: Memories on the Road
Finally I'm on the road to my home
Fallen into deep imaginations
The sound of the horse's steps is ringing in my ears
While Anna is washing my face with her tears

Laying in a complete darkness unconscious
All that I recall are images of tragedy
All my friends have been killed by the Falcon
Laid there on the hot sand, forever to sleep

Mama when she told me be careful son
I said don't worry, someday I'll return to you
My voice will steal the voice of truth
I can still hear her voices repeating in my head
This is the ride to your way

Those voices are spinning inside me
Trying to heal the wounds in my soul
Their sound is helping me to stay awake
And live my last memories on the road

The end of the story is reaching soon
The pages are fading away
Reading under the bright silver moon
Its the final chapter , blood on my hands

Laying in a complete darkness unconscious
All that I recall are images of tragedy
All of my friends have been killed by the Falcon
Laid there on the hot sand, forever to sleep

This is you beside me
Save me from the crow's eyes
Raining day, longing to that holy place
Where the angels cry

I can see the lights
Screaming through the sky
They can give me more
Power strength and love
It was the dawn of the miracles
The final destination
A wet smile I had got wider
As the house of lights got higher

Those candles are lighting inside me
Trying to keep my body warm
Their heat is helping me stay awake
And live my last memories on the road
Track Name: Rebirth
Finally I'm here in the place I've grown
I can feel myself rebirth again
The place I used to be, the doors I used to see
Are wide open greeting me

And ask me to climb the stage again
Just to feel my voice filling inside
And sing

And now my voice will break the silence
In a song full of pride and arrogance
And sing

Here's my song my blood my wounds my love
And here's my story the road to the knights
It's my last time to sing
And after the show I'll leave this world at all
But even if I'm gone, forever I will stay.
