Since the darkness took our minds
They burned our courage many died
Had to leave it all behind rebuild our lives
Passing memories remained
It made my soul a burning flame
Haunted dreams of my desire
Reveal my name

Raise our swords we fight for life
Shields and armor shining bright
Strike like dragons we have no fear
Our swords are made of steel

Fly across the high seas and mountains
Rise above the golden horizon
Far away beyond the gates of space and time
Through the wastelands forever and on
Still we fight on for our freedom
The cry of the fallen souls bleeding
Forever journey through the lands of ice and snow
Will we face all the fears of the world?
The cry of the brave

Since the time we saw the sign
Destruction of your feeble mind
Centuries have come and gone but nothing's changed
Hopes and dreams have disappeared
Destruction of your kind is near
Trapped inside your suffering eternal flame

Search the darkness search the light
Fierce resistance what a fight
Glory for unholy seal
Lies all cast in steel

Fly across the high seas and mountains...

[Solos - Herman/Sam/Herman/Sam]

In the depths of your desire
So secretly you feed the fire
Burning through the memories of all our lives
Watch the day turn into night
You reach out for that guiding light
First to be the one to hear their blinding lies

Fear of darkness fear of light
Sucked in by their ancient might
Ruthless in what you may feel
When your mind they steal

Fly across the high seas and mountains...

    General CommentI think the song is simply about fear... how alot of humanity let's it drive our lives in a daily grind... so much so to the point that some of humanity sees the need to destroy anything that they fear... wherras those of us with the bravery and courage to stand up to the fearfull will be our only saviour, if the fearfull doesn't pollute the minds of the blinded feebled minds of our dear brothers and sisters that need our help!

    General CommentI agree with ZehmBahDeh
    a man who survived and witnessed a dragon burn down he's villiage/city, and he's friend and family died. He is angry yet upset. he goes on a quest to kill the dragon, but theres many obsticales on the way.

    ^_^ Well thats what i think ^_^

    General CommentYou guys are all dumb, except pFB.
    The dragons are just a symbolization for a conflict.
    DragonForce fukin pwns. Anyone that says they're all just some retards that sing about dragons and swords should kill themself. It's meant as music to inspire and it's a lot deeper than dragons and swords. That's my theory anyway. take out of it what you will.

    General CommentAm I the only person who thinks of Season 1 Sailor Moon when I hear this?

    "Since the darkness took our minds
    They burned our courage many died
    Had to leave it all behind rebuild our lives"

    The Black Kingdom invaded the Moon Kingdom and destroyed it, killing the Senshi. They were sent 1000 years into the future to get a second chance at life.

    "Passing memories remained
    It made my soul a burning flame
    Haunted dreams of my desire
    Reveal my name"

    The memories came back, first with Venus, then the others. The memories ignited in them the courage and power to face the Black Kingdom again. Reveal my name? Can you say Princess Serenity? The Moon Princess?

    "Fly across the high seas and mountains
    Rise above the golden horizon
    Far away beyond the gates of space and time
    Through the wastelands forever and on
    Still we fight on for our freedom
    The cry of the fallen souls bleeding
    Forever journey through the lands of ice and snow
    Will we face all the fears of the world?
    The cry of the brave"

    The chorus primarily reminds me of the final battle with Beryl at the North Pole. The land of ice and snow, face all the fears of the world (the four youma that killed them).

    "Since the time we saw the sign
    Destruction of your feeble mind
    Centuries have come and gone but nothing's changed"

    The Black Kingdom has returned and is beginning to destroy their lives again, forcing them to give up their dreams to become the Sailor Senshi once more.

    "Hopes and dreams have disappeared
    Destruction of your kind is near
    Trapped inside your suffering eternal flame"

    Same as above really. The end of the world is coming so they have to give up everything they hope for the future.

    "In the depths of your desire
    So secretly you feed the fire
    Burning through the memories of all our lives"

    They embrace who they used to be as it approaches the end, both past and present lives converging as they prepare to settle what they didn't in the past.

    "Watch the day turn into night
    You reach out for that guiding light
    First to be the one to hear their blinding lies"

    This verse seems to fit Prince Endymion becoming a servant of Beryl (first to hear their blinding lies). She lies and takes over his mind, but acts as the guiding light to his confusion over who he really is.

    Oh yeah, I just so broke down this song to fit Sailor Moon. I win.
