"Wishmaster" as written by Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen, Tero Kalle Sakari Kinnunen, Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen, Jukka Antero Nevalainen, Sami Tuure Petteri Vaenskae and Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen....
Master!
Apprentice!
Heartborne, 7th Seeker
Warrior!
Disciple!
In me the Wishmaster

Elbereth
Lorien

A dreamy-eyed child staring into night
On a journey to storyteller's mind
Whispers a wish speaks with the stars the words are silent in him
Distant sigh from a lonely heart
"I'll be with you soon, my Shalafi"
Grey Havens my destiny

Master!...

Silvara
Starbreeze

Sla-Mori the one known only by Him
To august realms, the sorcery within
If you hear the call of arcane lore,
Your world shall rest on Earth no more
A maiden elf calling with her cunning song
"Meet me at the Inn of Last Home"
Heartborne will find the way!

Master!...

Wishmaster
Crusade for Your will
A child, dreamfinder
The Apprentice becoming...

Master!...

    General CommentA lot of this song is references to the Dragonlance novels.

    Master!
    Apprentice!

    Could easily refer to Dalamar and Raistlyn, who are also mentioned later in the song.


    "I'll be with you soon, my Shalafi"

    Okay, there's no way you can have read the books and NOT know what that means. 'Shalafi' is Silnaesti elven for master/teacher, basically the same thing as 'sensei.' It's what Dalamar calls Raistlyn.

    Silvara
    Starbreeze

    Silvara the silver dragon and Alhanna Starbreeze.... sound familiar to anyone?

    Sla-Mori the one known only by Him
    To august realms, the sorcery within
    If you hear the call of arcane lore, your world shall rest on Earth no more

    The Sla-Mori, the 'secret way.' The companions used a Sla-Mori in the Chronicals. Presumably there are more than one in the world.

    A maiden elf calling with her cunning song
    "Meet me at the Inn of last home"
    Heartborne will find the way

    The Inn of the Last Home is in Solace, where the Companions met and drank.

    (Noooo.... I haven't read those books WAY too many times...)

    General CommentThis song is about DragonLance and Lord of the Rings.
    Master = Raislin Majere
    Disciple = Dalamar, Raistlin's apprentice
    Elbereth = Is a Valar(a "god" in Middle-Earth's mithology), named Varda, creator of the Earth. Lorien = A magical forest of the elves in Middle-Earth.
    Shalafi = Raistlin
    Grey Havens = The last port of the elves in Middle-Earth
    Silvara = A silver dragon in the world of DragonLance
    Starbreeze = She is an elven princess in DragonLance
    7th. Seeker = Tanis Half-Elven

    General CommentThis song refers to concepts from the 'Silmarillion', the history of middle earth. I think it's about a journey, probably to the Grey Havens, the undying lands where the elves go.
    "Master!
    Apprentice!
    Heartborne, 7th. seeker
    Warrior!
    Disciple!
    In me the Wishmaster"
    I think the above section is about someone with great potential to be everything - both a master and apprentice, a warrior etc. This person is at the destination.
    That's all I can say...since I haven't actually read the whole book...if you want to better interpret this song then read the book and it may help.
    PS I am sorry if this sucked, I just though I should write something here since there's nothing else about the meaning of the song.

    General CommentTuomas on this song:
    "This is my personal tribute to fantasy, especially the closest to me; Tolkien & Dragonlance. These worlds have become a sort of inverted reality for me, where the story of "The Kinslayer" can't become reality... Moreover, I don't believe in this thing called "destiny". We are the masters of our own wishes, beliefs and dreams. Whatever you desire enough, it can happen. Destiny is an excuse for those who don't have the strength to fulfil their wishes. Everything is possible. Even the impossible."

    General CommentYes, it seems to be mostly Dragonlance with some Tolkien thrown in at random points "Elbereth,
    Lorien, Grey Havens"

    Master - Aqua

    Apprentice - Sora

    Heartborne - Kairi

    7th Seeker - Lea

    Warrior - Riku

    Disciple - Ventus

    Wishmaster - Mickey

    General CommentIf someone took enough time to listen to this entire song, it's a real power song. By the time it's over, you just wanna get up and go and really feel like you can take over the world. ^^;
