"Trail of Broken Hearts" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Here we are, far beyond the distant sky
Seen all the world and how the story will be over
Through the snow and tainted mountains we have climbed
Now we have found the light that guides us over
Through the falling rain we travelled far and wide
And through the blackest darkness, stars above shining bright

Through the sun and winter rain will fall
All our lives we all were waiting for a sign to call
We're walking hand in hand in dreams of endless time
How do we know when we will leave this life behind?

Stare at life through eyes of mine
The hate, the fear and the pain
There's a feeling held deep inside
When life you live is in vain

Fly away down the lonely roads of yesterday
We close our eyes to see the light of brigther days
And all alone we'll be where time can never heal
With the trail of broken hearts flying free

Once again we walk this lonley road
There are times that we were wading through the rain and cold
We're lost in memories of what we left behind
Relive the dreams, the endless screams of pain inside

Lives are filled with emptiness
The fear returns once again
Searching endlessly, now we will see
Drown your mind in the pain

Fly away down the lonely roads of yesterday
We close our eyes to see the light of brigther days
And all alone we'll be where time can never heal
With the trail of broken hearts flying free

The last temptation will be all that's left for me
When I see those tears you cried
When I hear those lies you lied
When I feel all creation now falling down on me
Is this the reason to be?

Fly away down the lonely roads of yesterday
We close our eyes to see the light of brighter days
And all alone we'll be where time can never heal
With the trail of broken hearts flying free

    General Commentit really is amazing, my favourite bit is:

    The last temptation will be all that's left for me
    When I see those tears you cry
    When I hear those lies you lie
    When I see your creation now for an enemy

    General CommentIn my opinion this is, like others think, a recap of the album, but it could be the start of the next one.

    The main character of the story is recapping on their journey, which I think is convoy of reinforcement, if needed. And he's been traveling with a partner the entire time, for most almost all of their life, because of the phrase: "All our lives we have been waiting for a sound to call"

    While recapping on their adventures, they realize their fears of dieing and leaving their life behind like the ones before them, seen the phrases:
    "How do we know when we will leave this life behind?
    Staring life through eyes of mine to hate the fear and the pain"
    There's a feeling held deep inside - the life you live is in vain"

    As they talk, his partner reveals that he wants to give in and join the forces of evil. And now our narrator is faced with the temptation of giving in as well, releaving his troubled mind of all his worries. Or he can stay true to his people, and become enemys with his lifelong friend...

    General Commentdf is one of those metal bands that wins a crowd over with powerful lyrics and great guitar solos, not just screaming and loudness. They are just amazing

    General CommentThis song is very down-to-earth. It's not so much a story as allusions to the hardships of life. In general, the song is about passing away. The deceased has seen the hardships of life and knows the betrayal,however they hold strong to their way of living and do what's right. "The last temptaion" is a reference to Christ. I don't know DF's religious beliefs but they are using it to acknowledge a pure but rough life. It reminds me of my mom...in fact it was the last song we listened to together before she passed away...

    and on another note the lyrics are botched. the line "When I see your creation now for an enemy" is actually "When I see all creation now falling down on me." (check the album inlay)

    General CommentI figure, that since the rest of the album is a journey of soldiers (as i see it) fighting evil. This is maybe the aftermath, a recap of the album and the journey of those who fought.

    A touching memorial almost.
