"Avantasia" as written by Tobias Sammet and Tobias Sammet....
Open my eyes
and see my bleeding wounded hands
Feeling the pain too hard to stand. To stand
Caught in the 'now and here'
While they are on the way.
Hiding imagination, leading us astray.

Use your mind!
You will leave the flesh dimensions behind.
Sanity can be the toll
Leading to the core of your soul.

We are the power inside, we bring you fantasy.
We are the kingdom of light and dreams,
Gnosis and life: Avantasia!
We are the power inside, we bring you fantasy.
We are the kingdom of light and dreams,
Gnosis and life, Avantasia! Avantasia

Walking along the icy gallery of pain.
Tell me now: What can keep the flame alive?
Lack of imagination raising up the tower
Where they hold our souls
To take away the tower.

Use your mind!
You will leave the flesh dimensions behind.
Sanity can be the toll
Leading to the core of your soul.

We are the power inside, we bring you fantasy.
We are the kingdom of light and dreams,
Gnosis and life, Avantasia!
We are the power inside, we bring you fantasy.
We are the kingdom of light and dreams,
Gnosis and life, Avantasia!

Oh Avantasia
Oh I hear the voices
Oh into the light
Oh Avantasia

    General CommentGabe is pretty annoyed about the fact that the Church is busy gallivanting in all it’s glory, while he - formerly a proud member of it - is bleeding and hurt, and nobody seems to care.

    The Druid then tells him to open his mind, to imagine a better place, a place of light and dreams and fantasy. Forget about reality, and what is, and focus on what could be. This Gabe does, and find himself in Avantasia. I assume the book he read, and the ‘magic lines’ in Reach Out For The Light had something to do with this.
