"Cry for Eternity" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Falling from the sky now, a sign of the burning sun
Into the face of the evil one
Nowhere to hide now we're on the run right before your eyes

We're watching, we're waiting, our souls are forsaking
The sign of the warriors, where we will arise

Through the fire and the flames, breaking the chains
Into the night we go
Time to pay, time of the slain
Such as the death we know

[Pre-Chorus]
Our steel will shine forever through the dark and falling rain!
We'll see them face their fears; it's time to rise again in everlasting pain

[Chorus]
Fly free for what we believe
One thousands hearts bleeding the eternal dream
Feel me the judgement of me
So silently now they will heal - cry for eternity

See now the fallen are new again,
We feel the pain burn inside their head,
Remember now what to be again, deep down inside
Still cursing, still crawling, we're endlessly falling
The downfall of mankind, the fate of the sun

Hold your head to the sky, bleeding we cry
Screaming into the night
Fire and pain, beginning again,
Onwards to help me now!

Stand strong we'll live forever
Raging through the barren lands
Our eyes have seen the sorrow
Far across the stars, the power in our hearts

[Chorus:]

Fly far away to the end of our days
The voices of long distant cries
Now we remain in this labyrinth of pain
And so we ride into the night

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus:]

Cry for eternity

    General CommentThis is a long shot but Im gonna say it has to do with the Emporer of Mankind of Warhammer 40k fame...being stuck in his throne for all eternity requiring a thousand lives to be burned to fuel his life to carry on man's struggle to survive. I'm probably wrong, but I like to imagine thats what its about. :)

    General CommentI totally agree with Stackle. When I'm freaking rocking out to this song in my car and I love to yell " Cryyyy For Eternity!" along with him. This song is pretty much incredible.

    General CommentIn the chorus, it sounds more like "kneel" than "heal".

    The first guitar part of the main solo, is, in one word... epic.

    General CommentAnother awesome DF song. And when I heard the title, I imagined how they would say "Cry for Eternity" and BAM, when I listened to it, they said it JUST as I had imagined it.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Ghostrider. Fire and flames, chains, "here we remain in this never ending pain and so we ride into the night"? Its obviously Ghostrider!
