[BotRH] Wheel of Time by Blind Guardian (song)

Recommended Posts

For some time now, I have been keeping the Band of the Red Hand updated on the forthcoming Blind Guardian (now released) with a song based around The Wheel of Time series. The thread contains samples of the album, and these samples were called "The sacred wheel of time cannot erase the medieval song" and was in 6 parts. Titled Wheel of Time, it is the 10th song on the album from the German power metal group. Please find below a YouTube link to listen to the song, as well as the lyrics. Enjoy listening to it, and I look forward to you commenting on the thread above.

Lyrics:

 

 

Now there is no end

The wheel will turn, my friend

 

I'm in flames

Cause I have touched the light

It pulls me so

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

 

It's scratching deeper

My sole reliever

How can I find you now?

 

Passing through the flames

I see

How terror will rise

It soon will be over

Of father of lies

Like foul winds at twilight

It's coming over me

Whata was and what will be?

What is?

I don't know

 

Driving me insane

Just feel the heat

Madness creeps in

I'll tear it down

 

There's no end

Wheel of time

It keeps on spinning

There's no beginning

Turn the wheel of time

There's no beginning

Just keep on spinning

 

Light - it binds me

Light - it blinds me

Light - it finds me

Light denies me now

 

I creep along

So desperate and lired

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

 

Wheel of time

Save my soul, find a way

And if I fail, will it all be over?

Oh wheel of time

 

The vision

So fleeting and vague

Once again I will bring down the mountain

One last glimpse

It is costantly slipping away

 

The young man said

"I will never give up"

The inner war

I can hold againt it

My mind, my mind

My mind's in darkness

 

The young man said

"I will never give up"

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

 

Wheel of time

Save my soul

Find a way

May it be as the pattern has chosen

Oh, wheel of time

Turn the wheel of time

It keeps on spinning

There's no beginning

There's no end, wheel of time

There's no beginning

Just keep on spinning

 

Shine on

Embrace and deny me

Turn on, wheel of time

Shine on

You've burnt me, now guide me

Wave on, wheel of time.

Come, I'll show you the end

You're damned

Cause no-one can defy me

Just watch these maddened creature

Like you they all once reach out

A war to win

But I'm gonna burn this vision down

 

Call me the father of lies

Just watch these saddened creatures

They've turned you into the savior

 

You'll hold your ground

Until your last breath

You'll twist then turn

And now you're falling down

 

The battle rages on

And forever and ever

The wheel will turn

 

Let ages come and go

The wheel will turn now

The wheel will turn

Another ride into obsession

I am reborn

The wheel will turn now

And I'm driven to obsession

 

All these dying men

Try to understand

They all followed the sign

 

It's the cycle's end

There's no hope

For a while

From the ashes arise

 

Can't save her

Enjoy the flames

so precious, so pure

 

And you try,

You're sure to fail

And madness

Is the price you've to pay

 

Unholy grounds

Witness your last breath

The cycle ends

And you're stumbling again

 

We will go on and forever and ever it's raging on

 

 

Now they just come and go (The Wheel will turn)

The wheel will turn, now you ride into obsession

I am reborn, (the wheel will turn)

The wheel will turn and I'm driven to obsession

 

Through the flames you see me,

You'll be mine, believe me

This is the moment I will fall

 

Wake up the storm to face it

Right now a land lies bleeding

It's me, I conquer your soul

 

I'll be on my way

Oh light, let me out here, I pray

And over and over and over again

There is no beginning, no end

 

This war ensnared us all and forever and ever I will return

 

Now they just come and go (The Wheel will turn)

The wheel will turn, now you ride into obsession

I am reborn, (the wheel will turn)

The wheel will turn and I'm driven to obsession

Tonight was awesome! Blind Guardian were bloody amazing! Sadly, I wasn't 100% by The Wheel of Time song. Watch out for a review at the Band's boards this week!

I've had this album on repeat for the past week now...and the Orchestral version of "Wheel of Time" is epic when reading the more epic scenes in the series. :D

Oh I've completely missed this album (Don't know how, considering that I listen to quite a lot of Blind Guardian).

 

 

Thanks for the info xD
