So here we stand between the gates
Upon the dawn the eagle waits
His tallons shine like daggers
On the wings of revolution
In pain the madman staggers
But there is no solution

Another sword upon a throne
But now the jester laughs alone

Beneath this cloak of treason
Appears a thousand faces
The truth must stand to reason
For those who's heart it chases

Beyond the world of mortal man
Within this sanctuary the spectre begins to tremble
They lay his spear upon the plan

On a sea of diamonds lies a ship of glass
Through the mist the torches pass

Their banners fly in splendour
The ghosts of night decended
With grace their souls surrender
The seal must be defended

Still the dragons reign supreme
Breathing fire till we scream
They leave us nothing but our dreams

No shield can save us
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle

Stand clear, there's storm above
And there is something left to fear
All speed, before the blade is drawn
And there is blood upon the seed

Let no one yield we're on the field
Where deeds eclipse the sun
Where the brave are told on a thread of gold
The tapestry is spun
As they speak of dreams their amour gleams
There's calm before the storm
But all can see their destiny
The bishop takes the pawn

In the sky the arrows fly
Each one to it's mark
Defend the true lead us through
This voyage in the dark
Make us strong you know right from wrong
Teach us what it's worth
Cos every heart that aches is what it takes
To save our mother earth

Lay your life upon the line
It's death for glory every time
You give up yours and I'll keep mine

No shield can save us
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle

So here we stand between the gates
Upon the dawn the eagle waits
His tallons shine like daggers
On the wings of a revolution
In the pain the madman staggers
But there is no solution

Still the dragons reign supreme
Breathing fire till we scream
They leave us nothing but our dreams

No shield can save us
It's gonna take a miracle
We're searching for a miracle
It's gonna take a miralce
We're searching for a miracle
