Blind Guardian - The Soulforged (Song from CD A Night At The Opera)

I’m not insane 
That’s how it seems though 
Spiteful cruel but wise 
Beyond his age 
My body fails 
My soul will rise

The end of life’s immortalized 
Disease and agony 
And I see death through golden eyes 
Beyond the door 
There’s something more 
It seems there’s just one way

On through the heat 
I’ve felt the touch of evil 
I still feel the icy claw in me

For a decent price 
I’ve banned kindness from my heart 
The spirit of all truth and beauty 
Pawned for my desire

And from the flames 
As chance would have it 
The soulforged will come into light 
And from the flames
As chance would have it 
The soulforged 
The stainless will rise

I will never change my mind 
I will leave it all behind

And through the hour glass 
Everything’s grey 
Everyone’s pale 
No colour nor beauty will enlighten my heart 
The seat of life’s empty and cold 
Cadaverous you all seem to me 
Stillborn but you’re still alive 
You’re still alive

Truth lies in loneliness 
When hope is long gone by 
I’ll wipe out the bliss of the new age 
And welcome you precious night

And from the flames 
As chance would have it 
the soulforged will come into light 
And from the flames
As chance would have it 
The soulforged 
The stainless will rise

[Solo]

From a distant time 
Voices echo in the hall 
"Come and join us 
Enter life and everything is gone now”

And through the looking glass 
I still fear mortality and its loss in the end 
Unlimited power in my hands 
The claw of the dragon ascends 
"Mourn for his lost soul 
He’s cursed and condemned”

Each step I take 
May it hurt may it ache 
Leads me further 
Away from the past 
But as long as I breathe 
Each smile in my bleak face 
I’m on my way to find 
Back to the peace of mind

And from the flames 
As chance would have it 
the soulforged will come into light 
And from the flames
As chance would have it 
The soulforged 
The stainless will rise

I will never change my mind 
I will leave it all behind
