"Lionheart" as written by and Hans Juergen/olbrich Kuersch....
Just let me out of here
Speak to me
It all would be easier
I want to talk to you
Who is that?
Do I hear a whisper?
Or do I hear a cry?
Across the brown land
The stumps of time

Oh turn the wheel and heal me
Since moonlights fade
I'm empty - heal me

I'm in search of the Lion heart
I am ashamed
I myself can't make it
Drown Ulysses
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out

Down below
I can't free my mind
Soon I will fade away
Down below
I can't free my mind
Soon I will fade

"Tic Tac" is the message
And the lunatic fears
He is no more

Speak to me
It all would be easier
While I'm passing by
What's that?
Do I hear a whisper?
Or do I hear a cry?
Across the brown land
The ghost arrives

Pick up my bones and
Tell me
Is this the "Lake of Fire"?
Hell?
Please

I'm in search of the Lion heart
Nobody else
But the pure can save me
Drown Ulysses
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out

Ruins rule my memories
I can't recall the signs
Invite the dead
Then silence struck my mind

Silence is madness
"Tic Tac Tic Tactic"
Says the clock

Just let me out of here
Speak to me
It all would be easier
I want to talk to you
Hear me

Welcome to this sad place
And hand me what is mine
I'm the Theban prophet
The dead and blind

And from the sea you'll feel me
Then you'll breath out gently
Leave me

I'm in search of the Lion heart
I am ashamed
I myself can't make it
Drown Ulysses
Drown here in the silence
Cause down to Hades I've gone
But I cannot get out

    General CommentWikipedia says it's about Ulysses and his travels to Hades. Makes sense, drown Ulysses is the souls trying to pull him down. Ulysses is a latin pronunciation of Odysseus, I'm pretty sure.

    General CommentAlso, the "blind Theban prophet" refers to Teiresias, a dead soothsayer who Ulysses traveled to the underworld to speak with.

    General CommentI could see how this could be about Roland's journey beneath Lud.

    "Speak to me
    It all would be easier
    I want to talk to you"

    Could be Roland wanting to communicate with Oy as they followed the trail of Gasher and Jake.

    I guess maybe Jake would be the "Lionheart" that the song refers to.

    "Drown here in the silence" is probably referring to what would happen if Oy lost Jake's scent beneath Lud, how Roland would be stranded in complete darkness and silence.

    There are some references from the Odyssey in this song that don't really connect with The Dark Tower.

    General CommentThis is my favourite song from 'A Twist in The Myth'. Definitely something to do with Greek mythology, i'm guessing the tale of Ulyssess which is one i'm not familiar with so hopefully someone else'll elaborate.l

    General CommentAs shown on the "A Twist In THe Myth" page of Wikipedia:

    "Lionheart" is about Roland the Gunslinger tracing Jake Chambers through a man-made labyrinth in the city of Lud and then into the sewers in order to rescue the boy from Gasher and his leader, the Tick-Tock Man. It uses metaphor of Ulysses and travel to Hades.

    From what book series these Roland the Gunslinger, and Jake Chambers characters are I have no idea.
