"Sign Of The Cross" as written by Tobias Sammet and Tobias / Sammet....
From a world of reign they come

In a world of mammon we have found it all!
Fighting for pride and for gold.
But the key to the reign, to the ultimate control:
Wisdom of the old.

We have been elect to drain the wine
Of Gnosis to hide it and pray.
Got to save our children from the beast.
We are on the way.

Seven eyes to be blind forever in time:
Sign of the cross.
Hell arise! Castigation under the sign,
Sign of the cross make us drown in altar wine

In the heart of justice called Horeb long ago
Moses got carvings in stone.
Imposed to judge those who do not fear
The only, the holy, the lord

The blood of anger and pain:
Ink of the Old Testament
I know they'll end their crusade
Drown in the blood of the lamb

Remaining in darkness
The land of salvation will drown.
And when we'll have vanished
Slavery will take your freedom down.

Seven eyes to be blind forever in time:
Sign of the cross
Hell arise! Castigation under the sign,
Sign of the cross make us drown in altar wine

You have been the chosen one,
So welcome to this place.
Vandroiy's told us you would come
To help us win the race.
Bring baclk the seal from the men
Who don't know what they do.
Seemed to be a fool without and own way of life.
But you've been a sleeping mind
And you woke up on time.
You'be got the power to save us and finally you.

A dream is forever.
The land of salvetion can't drown.
These enchanting colors
Who could have the might to tear it down?
(All these colors fantasy)

Seven eyes to be blind forever in time:
Sign of the cross
Hell arise! Castigation under the sign,
Sign of the cross make us drown in altar wine

    General CommentThe Pope and his consorts arrive in Avantasia (mammon is a biblical word meaning material wealth and richness). The Pope claims they’ve been elected to fight against evil… for profit? How does that work?

    Gabriel accuses them of being blind, and sees the Church as castigating everything and drowning people in their wine (ramming their holiness down everyone’s throat).

    The Bishop then brings up the Ten Commandments as a form of justification for their actions, and says his job is to judge anyone who doesn’t fear the Lord.

    The Elf then warns Gabe that the Pope’s war against Evil will destroy Avantasia (because people won’t be able to dream any more), and when Avantasia is destroyed, the world will be slaves to the holy orders.

    The Dwarf then tells Gabe that he’s the chosen one, chosen (by Vandroiy?) to help he and Elderane win the war (anyone getting Narnia flashbacks yet?). Regrin wants Gabe to reclaim the book that he read (the one the Pope now has), because the Pope has no idea what he’s doing.

    Regrin says that Gabe’s mind has been sheltered from the truth for too long, he’s been a sheep in the flock, and now he’s got to wake up and save Avantasia - and himself (and presumably, the world).

    Gabe promises to do so, saying that a dream is forever (his dream with Anna certainly seems to be…), so Avantasia will be fine. Who could be powerful enough to destroy a dream?
