Bleed for Love (At the Magic Door)

Shaken 
by the storm you bring
By your lack of will
The emptiness you leave

You trapped me in a dream
Keep me far from reality
I should tear down the wall
But your voice mesmerizes my soul
A siren or a ghoul
I bleed for love

They say: “You should leave ghosts from the past behind”
I turn and throw backwards a coin in a fountain
But despite bad luck hopes don’t die

Just for a night
When I see that smile
I can feel that I’m still alive

Just for a night
You run and hide
And I’m left behind, here, to curse the sky

You trapped me in a dream
Keep me far from reality
I should tear down the wall
But your voice mesmerizes my soul
A siren or a ghoul
I bleed for love

They say: “You should move on, there is no destiny”
But you’re life and death and everything in between
Even though I’m ashamed to say it

The magic door
Somewhere in Rome
There I’ll wait for the one I adore

The magic door
There we once more
Will go back to get what we’ve become

I know you saw the black moon
Between the Hangman and the Fool
But don’t try your Luck again
Or you, my dear, might loose its gift

The only dragon to defeat
My dear is your own fear
Opening your eyes you’ll see:
There’s no real wall in between

Shaken
by the storm you bring
By your lack of will
The emptiness you leave

You trapped me in a dream
Keep me far from reality
I should tear down the wall
But your voice mesmerizes my soul
A siren or a ghoul
I bleed for love

I bleed for love
Here’s again the dawn
The light in your eyes has gone

I bleed for love
At the magic door
Blamed for a murder I never wrote

Shaken
by the storm you bring

Lilith

From the dark moon
She will rise in the woods
If we just are
Enough faithful

Shining red hair
Her beauty and her pride
Your only chance
To live or to survive

Rejected from
God and the whole Eden
She has no hope
Or will to go back there

Seems like tonight
She could be listening
To all our thoughts
That’s why we pray and call

Lilith
Lilith
Lilith
Lilith
She is there for all brokenhearted at night and
She’ll still be there when this world will come to an end.

She protects all
Rebels coming undone
She’s our mother
Our goddes and lover

In the forest
She lives her deep freedom
And in our hearts
She has her own kingdom

She protects all
Those who fought since the dawn
Of everything
Those who still are burning

Seems like tonight
She could be listening
To all our thoughts,
That’s why we pray and call:

Lilith
Lilith
Lilith
Lilith

She is there for all brokenhearted at night and
She’ll still be there when this world
Will come to an end

In the name of the black moon

Dime

Another night
Another dime
To throw away

Another sight
Another quiet
Howl in my head

‘Cause here at night
I can’t reply
Only cry in bed

You are the dime that brings bad luck
You are the struck and the stardust
You’re the disaster and
My only master and
It doesn’t help trying to live
‘Cause without you I cannot breathe

Another night
Another dime
It’s just the same

Another bite
Another cry
Not in my head

‘Cause here at night
Alone I die
Wish I could forget

You are the dime that brings bad luck
You are the struck and the stardust
You’re the disaster and
My only master and

You are the dime that brings bad luck
You are the struck and the stardust
You’re the disaster and
My only master and
It doesn’t help trying to live
‘Cause without you I cannot breathe
I just cannot breathe

Claws

Have you seen the night my friend?
Have you seen its most dead end?
So why don’t you
Show me your claws?

Nothing’s as tragic as passion repressed
Nothing as noble as a moon to undress
Slow

Oh
Your mouth’s tasting like blood
Oh
Your mouth’s tasting like blood
Oh
The rain turns into flood with this wisdom undead and nothing left to regret
So our storm is all set
Oh
Show me your claws

How do you feel tonight my friend?
Are you enjoying the red dream you see?
Inside of all your dreams you see
There’s the crooked and vague shape of a myth
Your real way to be

Oh
A fire that burns from below
Oh
The supernatural growl of your soul held from above
A beast finally released
From the false talk of the priest

Never forget what’s the work of the witch
Never forget what’s the work of the witch
Never forget what’s the work of the witch
Never forget what’s the work of the witch

Oh
And the dream of Lilith
Oh
She’s gonna show you her claws
Oh
She’s gonna show you her claws, what’s hidden under her gown
The classic theme of return
And of your moral undone

Oh
Show me your claws

Never forget what’s the work of the witch

Takhisis

On a night like this
Like a fate’s twist
I saw her wings spread
The sky turned dark red

In a moment I knew
Our life was through
I was filled with regret
And things not said

But the dragon was there
To be admired, not tamed
Worshipped and not killed
By a fool’s wish

Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red

And with a deep kiss
By her dead lips
And her fire-breath
She destroyed our faith

Burned the remains
And I saw the truth
Through the Abyss doomed

Huma’s fooled
But the dragon was there
To be admired, not tamed
Worshipped and not killed
By a fool’s wish

Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red

Like the eyes of Raistlin here meanwhile
I see everything dying

Hear from the Abyss
The music slips
It’s magic black
And you’re a puppet

Lame and seduced
Sweet is the abuse
Closer the tomb
You’re her fool

Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
