"E.P.M." as written by Frederic Leclercq, Sam Totman, Herman Li, Vadim Pruzhanov and Zp Theart....
In a lifetime of decay
Sudden cry for yesterday,
When the world will see the end of eternity
Sacrifice before the dawn
Of a child soon to be born
Before the night too many tears we cried

In a long forgotten land
Through the silent raging pain
Of the price to pay that awaits for me
The end of all our destiny

Don't close your eyes tonight
For the lights beyond still shine towards a brighter day
The time has come for us tread blood across the sands
Carry on as the red rivers run

And through the wilderness we feel the pouring rain
In the silence ever searching on through the misery
And all the promises we made and cried in vain
Don't you take the time to realise the master of disguise?

Blind my eyes burning forever to wash my sins away
Out of the dark pain is the price
Fly away out of the raging storm
Lost within my memories
Still haunting me
A never ending story

Far and wide forever on
Stand before the world alone we journey to the other side
Raise your hands to the sky
Through the night and through the day
Don't look back no time to pray
The battle rages on marching on and on

Don't cry for me tonight
For the lights beyond will guide me home tomorrow
The time will come for us the curse is growing strong
Carry on with the rise of the sun

So take me far away it's time to set me free
All my life I have been waiting but I could never see
Raising your hands to the sky
Turning your eyes to the sun
Pray for forgiveness
The power to save has gone for the last time

Blind my eyes burning forever to wash my sins away
Out of the dark pain is the price
Fly away out of the raging storm
Lost within my memories
Still haunting me
A never ending story

Blind my eyes burning forever to wash my sins away
Out of the dark pain is the price
Fly away out of the raging storm
Lost within my memories
Still haunting me
A never ending story

    Song Meaningsrry sableseraph, but unlike most dragonforce songs, this song has a meaning. it dosnt take much to see that its a song of redemption. wanting to change for the better but still being haunted by the past.

    General Commentwow, no comments yet...
    this song is AWESOME i especially love the "in a long forgotten land" and "so take me far away, it's time to set me free" parts, guitar solo pwns as always, and as always the lyrics are pointless awesomeness, and i mean this as in theres no secret political debate or drugs or sex woven in, just pure epicness

    General CommentEach line corresponds too the lyrics above in order:

    About a man who has made some mistakes

    He describes it will be hard too change

    Not giving up because the future holds a better day

    realizing his mistakes and not tries not too cover it up with a disguise (Don't you take the time to realize the master of disguise)

    leaving the past

    trying too fix his mistakes

    telling his friends not to worry and he will be ok

    he needs too get away in order to fix what he has broke

    and more mistake fixing

    My Interpretation*Struggling to come up with a unique and outstanding interpretation*
    This song is about... solarium addiction! Washing the sins away, out of the dark, flying out of a storm etc. are metaphoras for better life, such as after an addiction. Why solarium? Because of how freguently light is mentioned in the song.
    Hardly as impressive as my theory of Through the Fire and Flames being about a gay revolution but it's something :/
