"The Flame of Youth" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Close your eyes, hear the thundering rain
Here inside of the torture and pain
For the cries of the world and the last lives remain

Hear your heart's way to die for the game
Deep inside slowly fading away
And the last breath's in vain and the fear turns to rage

Locked in the world by the fallen evil souls
Torn right apart from the roughly seam
Breaking my mind now to bring my life to war
Reach out and die with the flames
See through the lives of the red hot stabbing eyes
Now is the time to defend your crown
Destiny will call to remind us all
We fly free so far from here there's one thing we'll relay
And dreams of everlasting pain the fallen now rise again

Through the fire, through the flames like the sun we'll rise again
Lost in time, lost in space to the end of other days

See their endless ways: insanity
The quest will rage, not meant to be
In flames of hell forevermore eternally

[Chorus:]
So free your heart leave your life far behind
In the cold dark winter skies escape the pain inside
Now feel your soul lost in scenes of all eternity
Every day of this life, defending
And the flames of youth not ending
In a lifetime, searching, we must fight through the eternal pain

So alone in the world far away, memories of the dream will remain
As the world's falling cold and your life's all in vain

Fire in your soul will forever rise again
Nothing in your mind to remember now
Held here by the fear of the dark land calling
Fly free on endless seas, the final curtain falls
On the ground from down below, the time to lock and to load

Through the fire, through the rain, far across the distant plains
Feel the wind beneath the steel as your mind becomes insane
Save the hate of all humanity, their eyes belong to destiny
For freedom now we rise alone again

[Chorus:]

So free your heart leave your life far behind
In the cold dark winter skies escape the pain inside
And when the memories are all left behind
And the days are gone forever, lost within my mind
Now feel your soul burn in scenes of all eternity
Every day of this life, defending
And the flames of youth not ending
In a lifetime, searching, we must fight through the eternal pain

We fight through the eternal pain

    General CommentOfficial Lyrics:

    Close your eyes, hear the thunder and rain
    Fear inside of the torturing pain
    For the cries of the world and the last lives remain

    Chain your heart, swear to die for their gain
    Deep inside slowly fading away
    And the last breath's in vain and the fear turns to rage

    Locked in the world by the fallen evil souls
    Torn right apart for your life insane
    Burning in my mind now to bring my life to hold
    Reach out and die in the flames
    See through their lies and their ever staring eyes
    Now is the time to defend your ground
    Destiny will call to remind us all now
    Fly free so far from here this life we now will end
    And dreams of everlasting pain the fallen now rise again

    Through the fire, through the flames like the sun we’ll rise again
    Lost in time, lost in space to the end of all their days

    See their endless ways: insanity
    The quest deranged, not meant to be
    In flames will now forever burn eternally

    [CHORUS]
    So free your heart leave your life far behind
    In the cold of winter skies escape the pain inside
    Now feel your soul lost in seas of all eternity
    Every day this life defending
    And the flames of youth not ending
    In a lifetime, searching, we must fight through the eternal pain

    So alone in a world far away, memories of a dream will remain
    As the world falling calls, and our lives all in vain

    Fire in your soul will forever rise again
    Nothing in my mind to remember now
    Broken by the fear of the dark night calling
    Ride free on endless seas, the final curtain falls
    Cut the ground from down below, the time to lock and to load

    Through the fire, through the rain, far across the distant plains
    Feel the wind beneath the steel as your mind becomes insane
    Save the pain from all humanity, that rides throughout our destiny
    For freedom now we rise for all again

    [CHORUS]
    So free your heart leave your life far behind
    In the cold of winter skies escape the pain inside
    Now feel your soul lost in seas of all eternity
    Every day this life defending
    And the flames of youth not ending
    In a lifetime, searching, we must fight through the eternal pain

    We fight through the eternal pain

    General CommentIn my opinion this, and operation ground and pound are the Dragonforce's best songs.

    Like all dragonforce songs it appears that they're in a hellish world fighting for freedom, or in this case, enduring eternal pain, only to feel it more times over, to rise again, and feel it again. It appears that the fate of the ones fighting for freedom have fallen, and now suffer forever.

    General CommentA very nice song, not the best out of the album, but awesome in its own right.

    General CommentI think it's about sort of a deciding battle, after "Cry For Eternity" where they find the main source of evil or whatever they're looking for and it's sort of one of those "In the zone" moments where you just fight with everything you have despite "eternal pain".

    General Comment'Through the fire, through the flames/rain' is my favorite part in the whole song, besides the song itself. Ha.

    General CommentThis song is probably has one of the best openings in a song in the history of songs.
    (my opinion)

    it is just pure epicness... then after 46 seconds the song is still good, but the opening is better.

    General CommentIt's a bit odd, but this song always reminds me of Mother 3. If you've ever played it, give the one a good listen, maybe you'll hear the same.
