                                 Version 1.0

Lyrics:

Part One

Time stands still in this ancient halls
Only the castle itself, can tell what it keeps
Dark are the secrets, between these walls
hidden in shadows of death, while the sorcerer sleeps

Where is the morning?
Where is the sun?
A thousand years of midnight
The sunrise is gone

An old man marked by a life so long
His sleep is so sweet while his magic, is growing so strong
Waiting still for new times to come
A thousand years to see, if he has won

Where is the morning?
Where is the sun?
A thousand years of midnight
The sunrise is gone

Part Two

What has he done?
Why is he sleeping so long?
He wants to live, for evermore!

Soon is he young
When will he open his eyes?
When he is strong enough to rule

Chorus
Back in our time goes the legend
of a sorcerer so old,
He drank the blood of the virgin, to be reborn
Soon a tyrant will conquer
so spoke the wise
of the day when the sorcerer, will rise!

Blood is his wine
the sorcerer is cheating on time
and he'll be stronger than before

Cursed be the sun,
the women will weep for his fun
in the name of his magic so strong

Part Three

A thousand years had gone,
Armageddon hasnt come
Only the cry of a child, echoes in the dark

Backwards goes time
as the stars are passing by
Nothing remains of this foolish man, except his fate
