"The Tower" as written by Tobias Sammet and Tobias / Sammet....
Where do I go?

Never had a very real dream before.
Now I got a vision of an open door.
Guiding me home, where I belong,
Dreamland I have come.

Oh where do I go?

Never had a flesh and blood like this before.
Got a new appearance when I passed the door.
Is it a dream I am within? Oh what's going on?

Down, down, down
Go down, go down, go down
I roam into nowhere.
Don't see an end: eternal wastelands.
And I hear the voice, the voice, the voice, the voice

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Never been a fighter, neber been a man.
But I must help Vandroiy, he's my only friend.
Nowhere to go but I know that he knows how
We will get her out

Magic of transcendence
Brought me to this place
Vandroiy in reality lead me on my race.
Told me to bring back the seal
But still I don't know where I shall go.

Can't you 'feel' the voice?
You don't have a choice.
What a kind of life
Freedom in flesh shackles on your mind

Go all the way to the tower!
Find out the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
For all the wisdom of ages doesn't die.

Men have good intentions
On their way to the light.
But som of them are venal
And end up in the night.
Maybe it's better for you, mankind,
Not to know what's going on.

Sometimes we must go
Ways that seem to be wrong.
What a kind of life: Freedom in flesh,
Shackles on your mind

Go all the way to the tower!
Find out the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
Find out the name of the one
Who reigns from inside

You have come the long way through ages
To bring me the seven parts of the seal.
So now throw it over the walls of the tower.
Throw the seal!

But first Godfather, what about the prophecy? What
About your reward: The ultimate illumination, the
Gnosis and the power to defend your kingdom on
Earth with a strong hand? What about the prophecy?

I realize

For the glory, for the glory, for the glory,
For the glory. Oh what is going on?
For the glory, for the glory, for the glory,
For the glory. Oh what is going on?

Gabriel I can feel
You have it back book and seal.
Still no war is won, we have just begun

Go all the way to the tower!
Long for the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
Found out the name of the one
Who reigns from inside

Go all the way to the tower!
Long for the secrets behind!
Go all the way to the tower!
Found out the name of the one,
Of the one

Oh, how could the stranger steal the seal away?
Was it my fault? Or was it no one's fault at all?

    General CommentGabriel returns to his favourite state - confusion. He’s never had a dream that’s been real before, obviously. So he’s confused. He’s gone through a door, and now everything is different - even his appearance. Where should he go? He still can’t work out if he’s in a dream or not.

    All he knows is, he’s got to help Vandroiy, his only friend. He also knows that he’s got to find the seal, but there’s nothing nearby to show him were to start looking. The Druid says that Gabe needs to stop looking, and start feeling. He’s in Avantasia now, he doesn’t need to know where to go. He can just go there. He should go to the Tower.

    He meets the Elf again, and Elderane says that although men have good intentions, many of them can be bribed or tempted. He says it’s probably best for Gabe not to know what’s happening.

    Gabe agrees. Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do.

    Meanwhile, the Pope has reached the Tower, and a mysterious voice tells him to throw the seal over the walls of the tower. Clearly, the voice wants it. The Pope isn’t (quite) that stupid however, and asks when he gets his reward, and what all this ‘land of illumination’ stuff really is.

    The Pope’s greed, however, has lost him the seal. Gabriel now has it, as Lugaid reveals. It’s not the end of the war, just the beginning, but it’s a start, right?

    Finally, Jakob laments the lost seal, and wonders who to blame. Or even if there should be blame at all.
