The Best moments in ATEOT lyrics

#1 Post by Dragonfly » 21 Sep 2010 20:16

Well, why not to talk about your own favourite moments and lines in At the Edge of Time lyrics? For now, when I finally have got into it completely, and I must say it's one of the best albums I've ever heard, I can specify the lines that impressed me most. So please share your ideas, fellows! :)
I'll be posting my own list when I have more free time, perhaps tomorrow.
Nobody will ever let you know

They just tell you that you're on your own,
Fill your head all full of lies

Most impressive but not really that hard though very epic lines are the intro and outro of valkyries. But if you're looking at terms of "lyrics" I would chose some lines from Curse my name :

We all know he's guilty as charged
By punishment due to his crime
We sacrifice the wicked king
Acknowledged by scriptures and law

The climactic point of Road of No Release is one of my favorites:

I cannot heal your fear and doubts
The void, It waits for us
Still, After all the ghosts are howling
You cannot run, you cannot hide
The void, it waits for us
Still after all there is no choice
Now I'm riding through the air
Going to where no one dares
On the way I cross the line forevermore.
For once in life, I do not care
Nothing matters, now I dare
On the ride I'll cross the line
Forever to be free

Hm, I mean it in a wide sense of a notion "lyrics" - just anything Hansi sings, screams and whispers on this album, any lines, words and anything :)
Thanks for your replies :D :)

I just love the lyrics of Wheel of Time! This moment if fucking brilliant :mrgreen:

The young man said
"I will never give up"
The inner war
I can hold against it
My mind, my mind
My mind's in darkness

The young man says
"I will never give in"
The prophecy
Behold it's true
I conquer the flame
To release the insane
I'm crying
I cannot erase
I'm the dragorn reborn
And in madness
I soon shall prevail

Well, here's my list :D

From "Sacred Worlds":

I will live forever
All that really matters
I'm the one
This world is sacred
I'm coming home

(Probably the most epic thing I've ever heard!)

From "Tanelorn (Into the Void)":

The trouble of many I've seen
It's coming to an end
Here's my last stand
The torture at last
Will be gone with the past
Infinity, where will I go?

Into the fire
Curse me
In war
Into the fire
Everything is gone

(Pure agression!)

From "Road of No Release":

Find me, I'm drowning
Then once again
There's nothing left I fear
There's nothing more to say
And no more games to play
To play...

(So sad and full of sorrow...)

From "Ride Into Obsession":

Through the flames you'll see me,
You'll be mine, believe me
This is the moment I long for

(Precious flames and passion!)

From "Curse My Name":

They plead for their king
And they pity their lord
Put him to death, that's what I say

************************************

Now let him appear
There's joy in the air
Now witness a new age is dawning
In trouble alone
He's facing despair
Awaiting his bitter ending

(These lines in particular create the medieval mood)

From "Valkyries":

To the gods of the north I pray
And raise my cup for the fallen ones
Then I cry
In Valhalla they'll sing

***************************************

When the battle is lost
And the slain ones are chosen
Valkyries will guide us home
When the battle is lost
And the slain ones are chosen
Valkyries will guide us home

***************************************

Then finally I hear them say
Carry on
For Valhalla awaits you

(These lines sound so natural and sincere; truly the Nordic viking mood!)

From "Control the Divine":

For what I was
I'm doomed to be
The tempter and the secret foe
Cause I am hell and hell is me
Pure hate will grow

**********************************

I'll reign
Cause here in my tower
Impassioned, I'll show you a way
I can feel your hallowed rage
Now enter my realm
Awake and arise, you'll be free

(Divine atmosphere indeed, mixed with rebellion thoughts)

From "War of the Thrones":

Will you walk with me
Any further?
There at world's end
It's me
I sing

I cannot escape it seems
Sadly I sing...

(The lyrical centre of the album, I think; these words are so unforgettable...)

From "A Voice in the Dark":

A sense of denial
Come witness my trial
The crow has turned into a liar
I'll live, I may die
I've failed though I've tried
But finally I fly

*********************************

In vain
Still I don't understand
So talk to me again
Why do I fear these words?
What keeps holding me back?

I hear a voice
It comes from everywhere
“Now find a way
Cause you're the key
Begin to understand”

The descending ends
Now I know I won't fly again
On through the mist, I'm facing ground

(These lines are so real, in my opinion; I hear them, and I recall my life...)

From "Wheel of Time":

Now there is no end
The wheel will turn, my friend

********************************

Light - it binds me
Light - it blinds me
Light - it finds me
Light denies me now

I creep along
So desperate and tired
Let me ask you
Why?
I am what I am
Prophecies I am the chosen
"Taveren"
The flame will grow
Feel the heat
I'll keep on breathing
After all there's no tomorrow

******************************

Shine on
Embrace and deny me
Turn on, wheel of time
Shine on
You've burnt me, now guide me
Weave on, wheel of time

(Epic as hell, as somebody has already said; great mixture of passion, agression, despair and solemnity)
Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why,
They just tell you that you're on your own,
Fill your head all full of lies

This is probably my favorite moment on ATEOT. After the beautiful solo, culmination of the song.

It's brilliant indeed.

“Now find a way
Cause you're the key
Begin to understand” - these lines often make me to stop and think for a while... just like if they were written about me. It's strange.

Mine too.
I also love this part of War Of The Thrones:

"Will I ever learn from the past?
Will I fade away?
Will I ever stay where the shadows will grow?
There is luck at the gallows
I will free my mind
Soon it will show

Let it rain
There'll be no spring
My dream is a mirror
It reveals a matter of lies"

+1.. so fucking beautiful.. I often find myself singing this line along with the intro of valkyries and that "we wont take it anymore"-part of Curse my name :lol:

Oh yes. I find this song so intimate... It is an exciting experience to listen to it in the dark and silence, then it touches your heart so much... Somehow "War of the Thrones" in its' album version reminds me of a film I saw when I was a child, but that's only a vision and I can't remember exactly what's that film, but it is rather beautiful :)

War Of The Thrones is also perfect for a hot summer in a fertile valley. Believe me, I experienced it myself and now this song is associated with fields of wheat and forests in summer. Although it was acoustic version. Don't know, maybe piano is more 'cold'...

That's nice that everybody has his/her own associations. :wink:
Maybe my thoughts about sea are also now provided by the fact that at this moment I'm again reading the book about Robinson Crusoe, and "There at world's end, it's me, I sing" lines fit the mood of the book perfectly.

Dragonfly wrote:Well, here's my list :D


From "Wheel of Time":


Shine on
Embrace and deny me
Turn on, wheel of time
Shine on
You've burnt me, now guide me
Weave on, wheel of time

(Epic as hell, as somebody has already said; great mixture of passion, agression, despair and solemnity)

I LOVE Wheel of Time, it's perfect and yes, that final part is so epic, you described it really well.

This album is full of best moments, some of my faves are:

Sacred Worlds:

"THen after all
I sense the end is dawning
These lunatics deny the truth"

I’m bleeding, I’m fading
Here in my final hour
When long-lost memories return
And a voice keeps calling
“All dead and gone
It’s out of hand
Life is in motion"
(I’m wishing, I’m fading)
"Time to wake up
Face the truth" (specially this face the truth)

Curse my name: this part is amazing

Remove his crown
And bring him down
Remove his crown
And bring him down
Now we shall mourn no longer
Our prayers they've been heard
There's no more league
That will bind us to the tyrant
Our voices shall be heard
Cause we won't take it anymore
And we're one we are the nation
And we're one we're the law
Now let him appear
There's joy in the air
Now witness a new age is dawning
In trouble alone
He's facing despair
Awaiting his bitter ending

We all know he's quilty as charged
By punishment due to his crime
We sacrifice the wicked king
Aknowledged by scriptures and law

Valkyries:

To the gods of the north I pray
And raise my cup for the fallen ones
Then I cry
In Valhalla they'll sing

Then finally I hear them say

Carry on

For Valhalla awaits you

War of the Thrones:

Away
Watch the river it flows
Now and ever
I cannot believe in more
And now my time will come
Carry on

Will I ever learn from the past?
Will I fade away?
Will I ever stay where the shadows will grow?
There is luck at the gallows
I will free my mind
Soon it will show

Let it rain
There'll be no spring
My dream is a mirror
It reveals a matter of lies

A voice in the dark:


When dead winter will come again
There from the ruins I will rise

Wheel of Time:

I'm in flames
Cause I have touched the light
It pulls me so
We shall be one
Forevermore

Passing through the flames
I see
How terror will rise
It soon will be over
O father of lies
Like foul winds at twilight
It's coming over me

The young man says
"I will never give in"
The prophecy
Behold it's true
I conquer the flame
To release the insane
I'm crying
I cannot erase
I'm the dragorn reborn
And in madness
I soon shall prevail
Twice I'll be marked and
Twice I shall live
The heron sets my path
And name me true
Twice I'll be marked and
Twice I shall die
My memory's gone
But twice I pay the price

When I hear most of the parts I've written above I think of World of Warcraft haha

I also like the lyrics of "Control the Divine", I think this one has some of the best lines on the album - the lyrics incite to rebel.

All of Wheel of Time

From Valkyries:
Destiny
Spinning Wheel
The Path of glory
Round and round

Road of No Release:
Words and dreams unite, I hear and ancient voice
its calling for me
Whe death and life collide
I hear an ancient song

War of the Thrones
Will I ever learn from the past?
Will I fade away?
Will I ever stay where the shadows will grow?

Nobody yet mentioned the most powerful lines in Tanelorn 8)

Crush another tower
Grind the universe
I'll tear it, into pieces
Mourn forevermore


And from Wheel Of Time:

The vision
So fleeting and vague
Once again I will bring down the mountain
One last glimpse
It is constantly slipping away
What started in the underworld,
It should be finished here and now.

There are a few parts in Wheel of Time that stand out for me, but these lines I particularly like. I like the way the lines are sung against the rhythm of the song. It's different and yet "Blind Guardian-ish" at the same time.

The young man said
"I will never give up"
The inner war
I can hold against it
My mind, my mind
My mind's in darkness
I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae a han noston ned 'wilith.

absolute favorite line. From Ride Into Obsession:

Wake up there's a storm to face and
Right now when the land lies bleeding
It's me, I conquer your soul

I absolutely love Wheel of Time, it captured so much of the spirit from the books. My favourite parts

"I'm in flames
Cause I have touched the light
It pulls me son
we shall be one
Forevermore
That's all I want
It's all I need
Everything is fixed
There's no chance
There's no choice

It's calling me
Saidin
So precious and sweet
My mind keeps fading away"

and

"The young man said
"I will never give up"
The inner war
I can hold against it"

Also, the moment where Hansi goes
"I'm the dragon reborn
and in madness
I soon shall prevail"

Finally, I love the outro "Embrace and deny me... ...You've burnt me, now guide me".

Probably my favourite Blind Guardian lyrics this far
