Journey From Mariabronn

Original and similar lyrics
(Kerry Livgren/Steve Walsh) Two began together, lived as one Each one to the other had become More than a friend, living to meet a common end They were true, each one knew all is well Still the elder knew it could not last Hidden memories from the young one's past Drew them apart Both knew that deep within his heart they must part Each their own seperate way It puzzles me how we can be so close and yet worlds apart Can it be, my memory has torn my life in two From the very start I screamed for the devil to let me be I called to the heavens to set me free Today I prayed for the answer and not one Of the gods in the sky would rescue me Dreams of fortune fill the young one's mind Learn the worldy ways of hope to find Love on the way, searching to find the light of day In his soul he had found his own way But to each other they soon will return Destiny fulfilled, their words will burn an eternal flame

Witch's Invitation

Carman "Revival In The Land"
One peaceful afternoon I picked up from my mailbox the strangest looking letter I'd ever seen, a chilling little envelope bordered with flying bats, and serpents whose eyes were tinted green. The letter was addressed to me so as I opened it I froze. What I read turned my complexion three shades of blue. It said, 'My name is Isaac Horowitz. I'm a male witch, a warlock and I feel I need to spend some time with you.' Now as a Christian from a little church with God's call on my life, a man of faith and power with a challenge to grow I did what any saint would do in my situation. I tore it up said, 'Lord, no way I'm gonna go.' Then gently and methodically the Holy Spirit spoke and reminded me we're God's voice to our nation. It's the church's responsibility to witness, so reluctantly I accepted this witch's invitation. He had the house you'd expect, the old English cottage, a 'Nightmare on Elm Street' special right to the core, the overgrown ivy, the gate that creaked when opened, somehow you'd expect Freddy to answer this door. The doorbell rang, a hollow gong, the knob twisted then opened, and Isaac stood before me with a grin. His jet black hair and well trimmed beard flowed with his black silk clothes. My skin crawled as he said, 'Please come on in.' His house was filled with every occultic symbol you could fathom; Hanging pentagrams and horoscope signs, a Ouija board and dungeons and dragons game set on the table, a crystal ball with an incandescent shine. Then graciously he handed me some steaming herbal tea. Its presence caused my memory to jog...I thought of every horror flick I'd seen when I was a kid and thought if you drink this stuff next day you'll be a frog. Then he led me to a high backed chair as he meticulously began to unfold his scenario with evil patience. I was given a giant leather bound book jammed with newspaper clipping, thus the reason for this witch's invitation. With eagerness he pointed to each article with pride. He said, 'I healed this woman through a Babylonian chant; See this man, I cured him while performing druid worship; I was paid to curse this man with AIDS by his aunt.' On and on, page after page, delightfully he flaunted each incident for an hour without a breath. He said, 'Do you realize through my understanding of the dark regions that I can make you rich or even curse someone to death?' I sat literally intimidated by the immensity in demon power while his face shone with a satanic arrogant bliss. Then placing his hands on the arms of my chair and leaning into my face he said, 'What can your God do to compete with this?' I knew then how Moses felt, how when his rod turned to a serpent and the three Egyptian magicians did the same. It's as if you're sitting there in that stunned moment while your faith get violated and all you feel is weak, powerless and lame. I desperately and deeply prayed saying, 'Jesus give me wisdom - I don't want to put you through some foolish test. Then a shaft of light shot through my soul lighting my eyes with fire. God stood me up and I threw the book back in his chest. I said 'Isaac, I'll not compare God's miracles versus Satan's - the issue's not God's kingdom and Satan's lair. The real comparison is the condition of your soul and the condition of mine, and you puppet of the devil, that I will compare. My friend, one day they're coming for you - the soft associates in your incantations - the friendly demons you think you now control. The time will come when you'll be lying in bed wheezing like a dying animal and those spirits lay claim to the rights they own to your soul.' 'Then the room will grow dark, and the most hideous evil faces will come flaming out of the floor with a yell! The vile informants that promised reincarnation will claw your spirit and victoriously drag your soul to hell!' Then I grabbed the book and said, 'In that moment which mantra, which incantation you gonna chant to tell them to leave you alone? My friend, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt what I would say...'I'm bought with the blood of Jesus! Let me go!' ' I said, 'Isaac, when you tossed that book in my lap, you gloated with a sinister victory. You rejoiced when you saw your name in black and white. Now I rejoice, but not that your counsel of demons are subject to Jesus, but that my name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life!' Then Isaac jumped up from his chair and screamed, 'You must leave now!' I said, 'I will, but one last obligation - Next time think twice before you rumble with a man of God!!! And by the way thanks for your.. uhh... witch's invitation.

Tossed By The Wind

JIMMY NEEDHAM "Not Without Love"
This here's the story of Tossed By The Wind Who went out on his own with deceptions of men He was warned by his Mama 'Son, don't listen to them' And here's what she said to our friend [Chorus] Be sure that no one takes you captive By deceptions of men 'Cause you will find it to be tragic in the end To begin he was with Him With Him and glad Mr. Pure and Simple was the only one he knew Oh, and all that he had 'Til he heard from the learned 'Son, your facts are all wrong' The Jesus he knew got cut out of his songs Now he sings praises to Hume all day long [Chorus] We've been infecting your sons and your daughters Make all checks payable to your alma mater They're training for life on their own So far from home This here's the story of Tossed By The Wind Who was cursed for his thirst for the wisdom of men Now broken and hopeless He heard from within A still small voice calling to him 'Lies always fail in the end Truth will prevail in the end My grace is sufficient my friend' [Chorus]

Walk On

HILLTOP HOODS
Verse One – Suffa I speak from the heart, but only when I drink, And I only ever sleep when I'm too tired to think, Restlessness, the reaction that you will find, From stress I guess and having a compassionate mind, I worry bout the machine of progress, ain't no stopping it, The forest we destroy and the world we build on top of it, Mercenaries get paid salaries to slaughter, Girls obsessed with body image find calories in water, Nurses comfort seven-year-old casualties of mortar, A peasant's daughter caught up in a war for a border, And at home we treat our refugees like criminals, Detention centres just a catch phrase for a minimal Security prison, we drive gold trimmed cars, Down the road an Afghani kid grows up behind bars, And we wonder why they hate the west, When we treat them like they're second-class citizens at best, We're all pawns in a game, the USAs miniatures, Aussie foreign policy with George Bush's signature, Peeps die for a watch and blue chip stock, Did they do Big Pop or was it two bit cops, I wanna sue kid rock for making rednecks think they're hip hop, Wanna swallow people's pain and spit it from the hilltop, Wanna affect change in the subjects that we talk on, Connect strangers, work together and walk on. Verse Two – Pressure Polluting airways, mankind strays with no reforming, So slap on that sunscreen and enjoy the global warming, Cos ignoring world issues is what we all do best, Just like Aussie politicians shoe shining for the U.S. To save losing face, no thoughts to the fumes that trace, Our sky lines and clogs our seas we swimming in consumer waste, The fumes of hate rise globally but will it cease? The day we try and find a little peace within the Middle East, We shadow their borders yelling deplete their arms, Its just war for black gold so they can grease their palms, We all need a scapegoat, a villain to cop blame, We're just wolves in sheep's clothing killing in gods name, And that's world wide, like global over population, We mine the world dry of natural resources to feed our nations, Appetite for waste, I see it everywhere, I feel like throwing a flag of protest in Tienanmen Square, We need to care for mother earth and all of her natural defences, But talk is cheap, and taking action is expensive, We wear our hearts on our sleeves, our flags on our borders, And that's why nuclear testings done in pacific foreign waters, We follow reporters with the worth of a scholar, And gather personal opinions from a rag worth a dollar, Man this is not a subject; I feel lightly I can talk on, The attitude is one man of many, so walk on.

The Way To Heaven's Gates

Athena "Twilight Of Days"
I don't know the matter of my death. In front of me the gates of hell. It's not the end of a secret life. It's not a dream inside my mind, it's my destiny! I don't remember the time I forget I've a real name I've lost my senses I've fallen away. This is not my promised land I must be killed by someone's hands I must find my body, I must find my grave. I better move if my hope is to live again, I'll sacrifice all my life to revenge. Day after day I will kill for your glory! Lord of the night give me my life again. Give me your black horse to ride To the land of the mortal time, I'll be their lord for the eternity! You'll be my heartblood, my king, if it will be my destiny I won't retire, they'll forever belong to me! Over the seas, under the horizons I must find the way to the heaven's gates Oooooh! By your side I will live forever Oooooh! By your power I'll take my revenge! Oooooh! Through the Heaven's gates, to the other side of death. Will the black sun rise again? Will the moon be the light for man In this desert lands of existence denied? Dark is the colour of my dreams When you lie down in agony, the final battle is too far from me! I better move if my hope is to live again, I'll sacrifice all my life to revenge. Day after day I will kill for your glory! Lord of the night give me my life again. Over the seas, under the horizons I must find the way to the heaven's gates. How will my heart give me the power To find the way to the heaven's gates? Oooooh! By your side I will live forever Oooooh! By your power I'll take my revenge! Oooooh! Through the Heaven's gates, to the other side of death.
