"Dead Sound of Misery" as written by Hans Juergen Kuersch and Andre Olbrich....
It's dark
Let's do it now
Bring in the sirens
Cut of their tongues
Do it now
Ignore their cries
Ignore their cries

Now close the door
And leave it
Nothing went wrong
The Archangel is falling
Mourners split
Take heart of grace

A ghostly candle light
Lit my room at night
Son of man
We're breeding wastelands
Wastelands

The blood of Sirens
On my hands
I can't wash away
Still it pours
And stains our land
In bitterness
So cruel
Will ages go by
Dead sound of misery
Come share our sorrows
Be one with the Hydra

It's drown or burn
I'm exploring bedlam
The time is right to move
Furthermore
Bring out the dead
Turn your back
On the ones you have loved
Enjoy the heat of your whore
Babylon

Hear what the spirit says
There is no sense at all
Now come with me
Unfold the seals
No sense at all
No sense at all
There is not sense at all

So many times I have failed
Pure desperation
Still hear the cries
Of voices
Long gone by
They've gone abroad
And left this world behind
Leave me behind
Behind the walls I'm crying

The blood of Sirens
On my hands
I can't wash away
Still it pours
And stains our land
In bitterness
So cruel
Will ages go by
Dead sound of misery
Come share our sorrows
Be one with the Hydra

So many times I have failed
Pure desperation
Still hear the cries
Of voices
Long gone by
They've gone abroad
And left this world behind
Leave me behind
Behind the walls I'm crying

The blood of Sirens
On my hands
I can't wash away
Still it pours
And stains our land
In bitterness
So cruel
Will ages go by
Dead sound of misery
Come share our sorrows
Be one with the Hydra

    General CommentAt first i thought it was the interpretation of Fly through the perspective of the pirates of neverneverland. upon reading the lyrics though, it seems to me to be about the world after the rapture or apolocolypse. everything in total chaos and unforgiven remorse. Beautifully done though (the song i mean :)

    General CommentI like Fly better but this is still a good song. What is it, a bonus track? I don't have the cd yet.

    General CommentI made a blog entry about this which might clear up some confusion about the lyrics. It also has the song itself, for anyone who hasn't heard it: hrugnir.wordpress.com/lyrical-analysis-blind-guardian-dead-sound-of-misery/

    General CommentFly came first, Dead Sound of Misery is a remix, like JoshPR said. I would definitely say I like Fly better because I liked Fly very quickly, and still do after many listens, but Dead Sound Of Misery, which I originally didn't like (even though I loved Fly at the time, and was unaware it was a remix) has only come to be considered a mediocre song for me.

    General CommentI really like these lyrics though, for some reason. The song has sort of grown on me, but still doesn't compare to Fly.
