Promise Land – The Piper Illusion lyrics

His score is written and the Piper prepares as his promises dazzle the crowd.
A price to pay for the service he brings but it’s lost in the tempting sound.
He forms his line!

Like a raging lion, Seeking to devour – His lies hidden in melody.
It’s time we realize!

[No more time to wait and die. Deliver us this day.
Remove the veil that deceives our eyes.
Christ, guide our way.
Cherub sing, the Piper flees when we fall to our knees.
The Piper’s song is no more.

[Verse 2:]
Like Hamelin’s children will we follow the sound to Weser river to drown.
The Piper plays and we all dance along but it’s us who have chosen the song.

He forms his line!
Like a raging lion, seeking to devour – He leads the souls with a melody.
It’s time to draw the line!


[Ending:] The Piper sings – He sings no more.
