"The New Order" as written by and Hans Juergen/olbrich Kuersch....
Would you open the door?
Son, I know the way
Soon the flickering light will grow
Leave it to me now

Unchained
Unchained

Would you open the door?
Enter the here and now, a new horizon
You'll rise, you'll fall and learn to live
Keep the faith, keep the pace

Your soul's like water but
Your fate is like the wind

Here's the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Do you remember
When we were moon knights?
We've slain the dragon
In the room now

Yours is the future
Your quest for truth
How will it end up
I really do not know

This is no wonderland
(Just keep in mind)
Like a spell in certain books
Time will change it all

Away, oh, please embrace me
Away, I will be gone

I'll take a look to see what lies beyond the break of dawn
Would you open the door?
There is so much more to say
Keep the faith, keep the pace

The soul's like water but
Your fate is like the wind

Here's the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Will you remember the old rule
And will you fulfill this sacrifice?
Done for the future, space for the new
How will it end up, that's up to you

You're on the bridge on the borderline
No matter how you'll never ever leave it

Here's the new order
Hope shall be your guide
Praise the new order
Now let my spirit go

Times will change
The soul's like water and like rain it will return
Live on in healing rain
The past shall find release

    General CommentI don't think it's intentional, but this song reminds me a lot of the dawning of the 'Age of Men' on Middle-Earth from the perspective of the elves, as they depart and leave men to rule. There's also the mention of moon knights, slaying dragons, and their souls being like water and like rain they will return, as elves were a kind of natural spirit bound forever to Arda. On death, they passed to the Halls of Mandos, which was still on that planet, where Men's spirits passed on to unknown realms beyond the world after death.

    General Commentthis song sounds so magical imo, I wonder why no one has commented on this yet.

    To me, this song is about...well...change, and sometimes the past may seem better than what you're facing now..

    well thats what the last line said, imo.

    General CommentSeeing as this song is on the first album (and really, the first project of any kind) Blind Guardian released since the departure of Thomen Stauch, their original drummer of 20 years, I'm going to guess the lyrics pertaining to changes, moving on, accepting the new way things are now, etc. are subtle references to Blind Guardian themselves.
