This is a call to arms, gather soldiers
Time to go to war
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

Did you ever believe?
Were you ever a dreamer?
Ever imagine heart open and free?
Did you ever deny?
Were you ever a traitor?
Ever in love with your bloodless disease?

This is a call to arms, gather soldiers
Time to go to war
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

Ever want to be free?
Do you even remember?
Want to be god and devil like me?
Ever want to just stop?
Do you want to surrender?
Or fight for victory?

Here we are at the start, I can feel the beating of our hearts
Here we are at the start...

Darkness falls, here comes the rain to wash away the past and the names
Darkness falls, here comes the rain to end it all, the blood and the game

Far, far away in a land that time can't change
Long, long ago in a place of hearts and gold
Far, far away in a land that time can't change
Long, long ago in a place of hearts and gold

This is a call to arms, gather soliders
Time to go to war (Far, far away...)
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war (Long, long ago...)
This is a call to arms, gather soliders
Time to go to war (Far, far away...)
This is a battle song, brothers and sisters
Time to go to war

This is a call to arms, way of the night
This is a battle song, way of the night

    Break free of the expectations and standards of the world. Make your life worth living and live for what you believe in. And when you do, your biggest dreams will become reality

    I love the references to heaven in this piece... Though i think it should be 'beguile the devil like me' not 'be god and devil like me. ' that's what i've read on other sights, anyway... And 'gold' should be 'ghosts. '

    "far far away in a land that time can't change
    Long long ago in a place of hearts and ghosts... '

    Pure poetry.
