"Once in a Lifetime" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Dark clouds and thuderstorms in the fires and flames were born
Through darkness travelling on the night
Hellfires and rain will fall time is coming for us all
Our journey for the guiding light

Firelight it is burning so bring in the dark of the night
As we fight for the glory tonight there's nowhere to hide
On the wings of your destiny brings all the power you crave
Carefull now if not you then who else will we save

Lost in this world a total stranger
Death by the sword a common danger
You know that everything is not what it seems
March on all night forever searching
Daylight ahead is only lurking
Break through the walls and use the power of your dreams

Once in a lifetime take a chance at the right time the dgolory you see
Rise up for the time of your life
Now the time has come for you to be free

In minds of society we all live in harmony
Truth is that we all die in vain
You stand for what you believe
I kill for what I concieve
Is there then a title for this game

Far way in the wastelands of hell full of torment and pain
Demon knights riding over the heights where fallen are slain
Violent fury of firestorming death now no life will prevail
Now you live all your days in the fires of hell

Lost in this world a total stranger
Death by the sword a common danger
You know that everything is not what it seems
March on all night forever searching
Daylight ahead is only lurking
Break through the walls and use the power of your dreams

Once in a lifetime take a chance at the right time the glory to see...

    General CommentYeah, great song, my current favorite DragonForce song after finishing my collection by actually going out and buying the imported japanese versions of each album, rather than sticking with the downloaded stuff ^^

    General CommentThis song, especially the chorus, gave my boyfriend the courage to ask me out. We're now happily 3 months and counting.

    Dragonforce rocks.

    General Commentto me this song is about cause and effects of NOT doing something you only get once chance in your life to do. in a world covered by darkness you must use the power of your dreams to light the fire and push on ahead through the dark. this line in particular leads me to believe that if you dont do it, you will suffer.

    "Far way in the wastelands of hell full of torment and pain
    Demon knights riding over the heights where fallen are slain
    Violent fury of firestorming death now no life will prevail
    Now you live all your days in the fires of hell"
