"Dawn Over a New World" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
In the darkness of the night in the shadows of the dawn
It's turning black no looking back the sands of time are sown
When the day will slowly end and the sun has turned to grey
Will we feel the power of freedom with the dawn of a new day?

Over mountains paved with gold and through the valleys of the slain
Our quest will lead us onwards to the journey of the brave
When the time has come to stand for the power we believe
We will ring the sound of victory for one and all to see

Sometimes in your darkest dreams you will feel the haunting pain
Silent tears of your hidden fears come to haunt you once again
Fight on for the memories of the everlasting dream
Their in the silent lands on wings of glory free
We can go on forever with the darkness so far away
And the warriors who live forever fight on to the end

Across the highest mountains and through the endless seas
Our journey ever onwards fight until we all be free
Through the darkness shining the never ending light
On through the days of glory rise towards the fight

And one day we will find a way toward this distant golden age
The cries of war will sound the day
We stand before the dawn of a new world

On through the raging thunder across the seven seas
Cold winter skies are falling on the battles we have seen

We can go on forever with the darkness so far away
And the warriors who live forever fight on to the end

Across the highest mountains and through the endless seas

    General Commenti think i get its meaning now, if it has one that is.

    I think its about not giving up on the things you do, though you miight have fallen before to achieve your greatest desire.

    I derived this from the chorus:

    Sometimes in your darkest dreams you will feel the haunting pain
    Silent tears of your hidden fears come to haunt you once again
    Fight on for the memories of the everlasting dream
    Their in the silent lands on wings of glory free
    We can go on forever with the darkness so far away
    And the warriors who live forever fight on to the end

    See...it seems that in your journey, the ghost of your past, your failings might come back to haunt you. But despite that, we should keep on fighting for our dreams to becoe reality. =)

    General Commentthis sounds like it's about the journey of one man on a quest kinda relatable to some or lord of the rings

    General CommentEveryone has to slow down once in awhile, and DF is no exception. Lacking their usually fast awesomry, they instead make nice and relaxing "panty-wetting" ballads as I like to call them (Not to be insulting, just having fun).

    General Commentthis along with above the winter moonlight and trail of broken hearts are probably 3 of DF's greatest songs. i still love Through the Fire and the Flames and Fury of the Storm though =)

    General Comment"The sands of time are sown" always makes me cringe. Metaphors should not be mixed that way.

    General CommentYou can really see how fantasy novels and rpg's influence the band when you look at lyrics like this. It's obviously another tribute to the great epic heroes and their ability to never give up.
