Now, Storm, come closer
Can feel you're getting near
Just stay invisible
'Till it's over

[CHORUS:]
But still they don't know
They're just caught in distant memories
Then these fools will fade away
They may not fear the Fall

They won't be any more...
I hear their silent singing...
"We don't fear any more,
We don't fear him!"

Now don't come closer;
Stand still, don't interfere
Don't move or things go wrong

We're trapped in Twilight
Trapped in the mind of
A sacrificial king
And the sun won't shine here any more
"I'm just a crow,
Dear old friend"

And when the time is ripe for changes
We will salute you
And the new Age may begin

[CHORUS]

When all the magic is gone
No need to carry it on...

[SOLO]

Whatever the cost,
It will not be redeemed;
And whatever may come,
It will not bring relief

In the Mirror
They may claim to see
What is real behind

There it ends
And there is no return
They will go down;
They all will have
To drown

Out of the Dark, into the Grey
These fools won't fade away
No matter what I've come to say
These fools won't fade away

The Storm comes closer
Can feel you're getting near
Just stay invisible
You're no saviour...

[CHORUS]

I know they reach out for someone
Reach out for the Great Unknown

[CHORUS]

They've thought it is time for changes
[BACKGROUND] "We will salute you" [x3]
Moved on to the Promised Land
Now let it begin:
They've found a new God...

    General CommentHands-down my personal favourite song of the new album... which is why I bothered to record the lyrics (done a couple of days post-release, when the official ones weren't available to me).
    I'd really like to have a lyrics notebook for the whole thing, though. I'm trying to find out what the story's about...
