Shadows
shadows and fever
no-one hears him cry so he turns to evil

Only now, only now does he know

Pains
always those pains
once he turns that way he will do it again

Only now, only now does he know
silver doom, unseen moon will show

As they dance under the moon
they bring doom
he calls her friend
and says he'll change
she calls him friend
and he deceives again

Flowers
a scent of flowers
always on his mind so he deceives her

Only now, only now does she know

Love
love makes her blind
soon she follows him through the doors of time

Only now, only now does she know
silver doom, unseen moon will show

As they dance under the moon
they bring doom
he calls her friend
and says he'll change
she calls him friend
and he deceives again

    General CommentHaving read the Dragonlance books, which this song is based on, here it is: Raistlin is a mage, once a good guy. his soul is somewhat taken over by the soul of another ancient magic-user of evil. this is done kind of willingly, 'cos Raistlin does it in exchange for power.
    The girl mentioned is known as the Revered Daughter of Paladine (paladine being main god of good in the story.)
    She ends up falling in love with Raistlin, pretty much at their first encounter.
    Raistlin gradually draws her to himself as the story progresses (not out of love) because he needs her cleric powers to get into the past. She must help him do this willingly, he cant force her, thus he decieves her. whole reason for this is because he is always seeking power, which is the reason he is traveling into the past.
    Anyway, i got kinda out a hand, seems more like a summary of the books themselves, but the song should make sense. ^ ^

    General CommentThis song is great for any Raist fan. I especially love the guitar and such in the beginning of the song. Anyway, these are great lyrics, they pretty much tell the whole story of Raistlin in a simple way. Raistlin was, after-all one of the most comlicated characters in the DL series.

    General CommentHmmmm, i like the story in the lyrics and Raistlin is my favorite Dragonlance character. The instrumental aspect of the song is simple but good. Im kinda a music snob so im not especially drawn to the lyrics or the vocals but it is still a good song.
