Текст песни MEKONG DELTA - Dances Of Death

(Music by Bjoern Eklund, Lyrics by Bjoern Eklund & Doug Lee)(19:09)
A) Introduction

B) Eruption

C) Beyond The Gates

Time - passing as the world
changed its face
Past - all that used to be not a trace
Now - all that was is gone
can't you see

Always questions

What - happened to our world
different now
Why - answers can't be found
tell me now
Now - dissolution is all I see

As I meandered this world I saw strange faces
I've seen some gastly bizarre phenomenon
Such desolation and pain I can't describe it
But always something was there that led me on

Never saw a place like this
How can such a place exist
Brotherhood of happiness
Inviting me I can't resist
How can such a thing exist
Inviting me I can't resist
Never saw a place like this
Never saw a ...

The priests gave us reason
Brought hope to our season
They gave us the will to survive
It's healthy and clean here
It's just like a dream here
Just thank the priests you're alive

I had a vision - then it was gone
Something there I just can't put my finger on

Crys - from the other side
calling me
Lies - message from beyond
curse the priests
Why - I don't understand
Share the feast


Dark - figures in the midst
help denied
Death - tightening it's fist
no reply
Rage - tell me what is this

And as the people all dance in celebration
They seem so happy and so preoccupied
Somehow I don't understand this fascination
I think it all will be clear when I'm inside

Where did all these priests come from
What kind of men have you become
Serve and never question why
Worship Talons from the sky
What lies beyond the golden gate
A journey of uncertain fate
Serve and never question why
Serve and never question why
Question why

It's nicer than nice here
A real paradise here
It's really too good to believe
There's growing in knowing
And that's where I'm going
The gates are prepared to receive,
receive ... me

D) Outburst

E) Days Of Betrayal

Gates far behind
Priests out of mind
Endless the night
Nocturnal flight
Eyes in the dark
Wait for the spark
Waste everywhere...

Peril in sight
Pray for the light
Phantoms in black
Mutants attack
Bareskin and bone
Hunger the hone
No apathy
For what I see

The tunnel in the mountainside
Looks like a place to hide
Descending into darkness now
A chamber deep inside

Days of betrayal
Days of betrayal
Days of betrayal
Days of

Screen coming on
Ancient machines
What does it mean
Bio chip here
Message of fear
Shocking the view
Morbid and true

A chance to save the human race
Chaos we can avoid
A mighty power out of place
That has to be destroyed

Days of betrayal
Days of betrayal
Days of betrayal

The end of the begining of,
What is but never really was
Now press on and go beyond
I could try a million times,
And cry until the end of time
But it won't cange a thing

F) Restless

G) Sanctuary

Don't believe all that you see
'Cause it can never be
Truth could be there in disguise
So never trust your eyes
Wandering aimless through time
Wondering what I will find
So many years on my own
No place I can call home

A dome upon the hill - stare
What can that builing be - sound
I hear a melody - look
That's my philosophy - wait
The truth is for the brave - and
It's like a tidal wave now

Entities all dressed in white
No end in sight
Some giants, some little ones
Where are they from
Packed inside this mega-dome
Why have they come
Where are all these giants from
Why have they come

My eyes are playing tricks on me
These things I really can't believe
They've got the heads of human men
And the bodies of machines
