"Princess Of The Dawn" as written by and Peter Baltes Deaffy....
There's rain on the mountain
A white frost on the moors
It's an epoch of eternity
Waters touch the holy shore

It's a land of mystery
The world of unseen eyes
You can feel the shadow of a princess
She waits for you inside

The guardians of God play the pawns
Beg for mercy, hail the queen
Princess of the Dawn

In the war of the dragons
Young blood ran it's course
They fell to his blade
The knight Iron Horse

A forgotten priest
Disappearing in the haze
A chamber of vestal virgins
Twilight is her slave

The Wizard of Oz moved the pawns
Life for Satan, dust to dust
Princess of the Dawn

On the day of the testament
The seventh moon was raging fire
Heaven cried for the sacrifice
The midnight sun was rising higher

The Beauty and the Beast
Lies in her royal crypt
Her kiss is bitter sweet
Death upon her lips

The Holy Grail held the pawns
Kings and bishops bow to grace
Princess of the Dawn

The guardians of God play the pawns
Beg for mercy, hail the queen
Princess of the Dawn

A new day dawns for heaven and earth
A first sunbeam is killing the night
Once upon a time for ever more
The gloom with the spirit of that Lady in White

Princess, Princess, Princess of the Dawn
Princess, Princess, Princess of the Dawn
Princess, Princess, Princess of the Dawn
Princess, Princess, Princess of the Dawn

    General CommentI think the majority of the lyrics are nonsense but I like to think the whole song as the duration of one night when the 'princess of the dawn' rules the land. The end comes when "a new day dawns...", and it happens on and on ("once upon a time, for ever more"), just like the monotonous beat of the song.

    Goddamn, this must be a killer live song, ACCEPT 4ever folks :D !

    General CommentJust my thoughts, but I think the song is about the battle between heaven and hell "It's a land of mystery
    The world of unseen eyes
    You can feel the shadow of a princess
    She waits for you inside "and maybe making a reference to satan being a female as the princess of the dawn. Like a pump up song before angels and demons go into the final battle of heaven and earth.
    The guardians of God play the pawns
    Beg for mercy, hail the queen
    Princess of the Dawn.

    More like he is singing from the evil side and predicting a win in the battle.
