Kamelot – Memento Mori lyrics
Who wants to seperate
The world we know from our beliefs
And who sees only black and white
Distinguish loss from sacrifice

Some day we may come to peace
With the world within ourselves
And I will await you until I close my eyes
Close my eyes close my eyes

When your time has come you know you'll be lonely
Once again
And the final winter comes to us all

Life is treacherous
But you're not the only
Who must pretend

We're a second in time
We're the last in the line
Of the prey that walks the earth
Good and evil combined

I am the god in my own history (The master of the game)
I may believe if she would come to me (Whispering my name)
Sometimes I wonder where the wind has gone (The life has ever been)
Sometimes I wonder how we belief alone can cut me free from sin

When you close your eyes mementos of summer
Retrieves your mind
Like a drizzle after noon cleans the air
When the winter blows
You're glad you remember you really tried

And it comes to an end
Even winter... Like fall
And we all have our beliefs
Pray for mercy for all
Mercy for all
Pray for mercy for all

I am a man without a mystery (The deal is done within)
I will embrace the coldest winter breeze (And pay for every sin)

(Helena:)
Victoria, non praeda
Memento Mori

(Mephisto:)
Una voce... Volo non valeo
Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori
Memento mori

So subservant in your embrace
No more denial
No run away
This is the final my last recall

And that's the price for what we learn
The more we know the more we yearn
Cause we're so alone
So alone so alone

I am a man without a mystery (The deal is done within)
I will embrace the coldest winter breeze (The journey can begin)
I'm still the god in my own history (The master of the game)
I still believe that she would come to me (And whisper out my name)

Some day we may come to peace
And reach beyond behind the lies
And I will await you until I close my eyes
Close my eyes close my eyes

    AdInfinitum
    Epica and The Black Halo are a two-part concept based on Goethe's Fauss. Memento Mori illustrates the ending, where Ariel (Roy Khan) defies evil in the very face of damnation. Because of this, Mephisto (Shagrath from Dimmu Borgir) is unable to claim Ariel's soul and is cast into Hell due to his divine bet with God (as explained in Epica). Ariel's soul is now split from his body and rises into Heaven to join his dead lover, Helena (Simone Simmons).
