Oracle of war

Time stands still in doubt and fear,
Last night in dream, I burst into tears,
The night of glory, the night of cheers,
Message to mankind, the oracle of war.

Drowned in silence, drowned in vain,
Drowned in dream, drowned in rain.
Appeasing peace taking over my senses,
In endless dreams, I've seen these faces.

The Gods and legends, the emperors of heaven,
The warrior who conquered, never be forgotten.
Glory have kissed as they ride on their fleets,
The Great War is over, it’s time to greet.

What is there to greet, thousand deaths, they bleed?
What is the fortune written on their creed?
Can you feel the pain of their void open eyes?
Can you hear their spirits, their weeps and cries?

We fought this battle to end this war,
Now you have to earn it and free this world.
The knights have fallen on their knees,
Freedom- a wild beast, up for you to seize.

Release the souls locked in chain,
From this land of bloodshed & pain.

Eyes of fire, no tears of volcano,
Why damned war? I feel so hollow.
I forged this blade to kill, but never at all I’m thrilled to kill,
I fought to end this war, and I know how this death would feel.

We fought this battle to end this war,
Now you’ve to earn it and free this world.
The knights have fallen on their knees,
Freedom- a wild beast, if you could seize.

Then I woke up in tears, with a golden key,
Now it's time to set ourselves free,
That war might be over,
But our fights would never be.

We’ll fight this battle and end this war,
We’ll earn it for sure and free this world.
The knights have stood on their feet,
Freedom- a wild beast, we’ll have to seize.
