The realm's bleeding
It suffers
Old and weak

No further arguing
There is war at hand
The system's failing
Engine's running

Then after al I sense the end is dawning
These lunatics deny the truth

I know I will not fail
There'll be

War
It's now or never
We shall stand together
One by one
This world is sacred
I'm coming home
War
It's now or never
We shall stand together
One by one
This world is sacred
I'm coming home

Coming home

You chase in twilight and you know
You will be on your own
On your own

The misery's shown
I'll be alone in this hour
I face the unknown
Witness the end

I'm bleeding, I'm fading
Here in my final hour
When long lost memories return
And a voice keeps calling
All dead and gone
It's out of hand
Life is in motion
I'm wishing, I'm fading
Time to wake up
Face the truth

I'm sinking, I'm drowning
There's no doubt and no regret
Time to reveal now

This is no illusion
It is real
Carry on the flame
It's not over now
Watch me I will rise
Time to reveal now

I know I will not fail
Anymore

I'm the one forever
All that really matters
Blessed realm
This world is sacred
War
It's now or never
We shall stand together
One by one
This world is sacred
I'm coming home

Yesterday's gone
There's no today, no tomorrow
I'm raised from the dead
The ritual failed

There at the gates
I'm left alone in this hour
Driven insane
I am left alone

And now I drown in deepest shadows
While the golden hall is sealed
I'm wishing, I'm fading
And I am part of the machine

My eyes are the eyes of a dead man
And feel the unholy stream
The source of my power, T-energy
I'm in control

I will live forever
All that really matters
I'm the one
This world is sacred
I'm coming home
War
It's now or never
We shall stand together
One by one
This world is sacred
I'm coming home

I spread my wings
But I keep on falling
I should have known
I can see it coming
The war is over
There's whispering in the wind
Just let me out of here
There is no way
There is no end
While all the suffering goes on
All that I know
Is that I'm not insane
It's not over

    General CommentThis song is an updates version of "Sacred" with added orchestral intro, which was originally written for the video game Sacred 2: Fallen Angel. The game is based a war being fought to control a volatile substance that is the source of life and magic. The material is out of control, causing mutations and destruction. You can choose a campaign to either try and heal the land, or further the chaos.

    General CommentFor the lyrics,

    "My eyes are the eyes of a dead man
    And feel the unholy stream
    The source of my power, T-energy
    I'm in control"

    The T-Energy is from the game that this song was made for,

    "A mysterious and volatile substance called T-Energy is the source of all life and magic in Ancaria.The world Sacred 2, Fallen Angel is based in"

    And I also found this; "Video game designer Bob Bates has been involved in its production, the game also includes a video sequence with the power metal band Blind Guardian, who also made a theme song for the game."

    General CommentIt's actually "Blessed ground, this world is Sacred."

    A great theme song for Sacred 2.

    General CommentThese are my educated guess at corrections:

    Line 2: "there is war at hand"
    Line 4: "After all I think the end is dawning (or starting?)"
    Line 6-7: "there'll be ... war it's now or never, we shall stand together"

    Regime may or may not be "machine"

    I'm too lazy to look up the full version.

    That being said, this song is bloody amazing and I love it. One of Blind Guardian's best to date.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my D&D party (I was the DM). I can almost see the faces of the players fighting, it's so passionate.

    Song MeaningIt seems to me like it's another song about the book OTHERLAND, by Tad Williams. I haven't finished reading the book yet, but the lyrics about the system failing might be the "hick-ups" in the Otherland system. The war could be the Circle fighting against the Grail Brotherhood. "When long lost memories return
    And a voice keeps calling" sounds like when Paul begins to remember who he is and starts to learn about the system from the voice of a bird woman who calls to him in his dreams.
    There are more examples I could use that correspond with the book, but I'll just stop there.

    If you're a science fiction fan I highly recommend the book; it could keep you busy forever - four books: 3 books are 700 pages long and the last one 1,000. I'm just starting the third. XD
