Versuri Edguy - Theater Of Salvation

Album: Edguy - Theater Of Salvation

[music & lyrics: Tobias Sammet]

"I've heard voices in my dream.
Made me stand up, helped me see. Aaah... Oohhh...
Visions called him to awake his mind,
to find his horizon
and find out what may be behind.

[vision:] "Take what you need,
you can find in the back of your soul!
Wake up the king in yourself
to be mighty and bold!"

Seasons of doubt,
fear and silent desires of life have gone by.
Visions have called back my longing
for freedom tonight. Made me sigh...
Wasting my life till the day
that the voice has appeared... Made me see:
I am the one that can make it
through times of despair; I am free!"

They built up a symbol of warning
to give me fear,
to keep me away from paradise
although it's so near,
expecting I don't take a look
at what is behind: Freedom calling...

Take a look at the open gate!
Walk on and don't be afraid!
Free your mind in what they call
it's the heart of temptation!

...oh... Go the way!

Take a look at the open gate!
Walk on and don't be afraid!
Free your mind in what they call
it's the heart of temptation!

Night after night
I remembered the word of the priest:
"Thou shalt not! Never give in to the promises made by the beast,
so help me god!
Never give in to temptation or you'll burn in hell a long, long time!
Forever-eternal-salvation is
what I can sell if you stay blind!!!"

But I wanna know what lies behind the gate of their hell.
And I won't believe all the stories that
they always tell. I got the mind to find out what is right and what's wrong.
Freedom calling...

Queen of mine I long for you.
Tell me why to wait to find our joy!
It's your wait for heaven's door,
your fear that makes them grow
and let you forget today.

I'll never go and I'll stay on your side.
They'll never know what I give to you
is a piece of paradise.

Heaven can wait! NOW I'm living!
Heaven can wait forevermore.
Heaven can wait!
I am to live like I want to also before I'll die.
Heaven can wait! You can't thrill me!
Heaven can wait, we dance till we die!
Heaven can wait! Welcome to the

"Hallelujah, hallelujah!"
I hear the man in black, his
"Hallelujah, hallelujah!"
He tries to keep me back. No!
"Hallelujah, hallelujah!"
Lock up the gates to wisdom
Hallelujah, hallelujah...
Too late! I've found the kingdom...

Hallelujah, hallelujah!
I see a band of angels.
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Freedom calling...
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
I do not fear the stories.
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Freedom calling me...

Don't you see it? Don't you feel it?
Freedom calling...

(...and the vision finally added: "Go and find the answers in yourself;
and always remember: 'You're already living.'
Don't let them scare you on your quest for answers and for salvation -
for real salvation...)
