A deep voice is rising
From the heart of the mountain
Vibrations of the stone
I can hear in my heart

The call of instinct
The flight of the powerful
I hunger for it
It just keeps me alive

I met the dragon
In a cave by the mountain
Now I bring the evidence
The beast is alive

This ageless army
Will strike in the morning
And then a star will rise
And shine in the sky

But I grow impatient
Cannot stand the wait
And I start to dig
Within me
This tunnel to I

In this region of me
A great dragon is lying
On the wealth of a mighty world
My own world inside

I saw
I saw monsters
And I
And I started to dig within
When I
When I turn my back on them
They devour me
In this region of me
A dragon is lying there
Monsters kings
Do not scorn them
But do not fear them
Muster thy army
Dragons are the myth alive
In the heart of men

    What do the lyrics of "where dragons dwell" mean to me?
    It's a journey of self awareness. Seeing inside one's self, beyond what other see of us and deep into the darkness inside of us.
    "the call of instinct
    The flight of the powerful
    I hunger for it
    It just keeps me alive"
    Our minds speak to us as thoughts and we don't always understand the meaning right away.
    Quite simply put, "where dragons dwell" is about what we fear inside of ourselves.

    ^ this is the most appropriate meaning. I saw
    i saw monsters
    and i
    and i started to dig within
    when i
    when i turn my back on them
    they devour me
    in this region of me
    a dragon is lying there

    This means that when you turn your back on fear, they come back to frighten you because they've not been properly dalt with. The purpose of this song is to say that fears or pain is a tool in self-understanding.
