Where is the sun? A thousand years of midnight The sunrise is gone An old man marked by a life so long His sleep is so sweet while his magic, is growing so strong Waiting still for new times to come A thousand years to see, if he has won Where is the morning? Where is the sun? A thousand years of midnight The sunrise is gone Part Two What has he done? Why is he sleeping so long? He wants to live, for evermore! Soon is he young When will he open his eyes? When he is strong enough to rule Chorus Back in our time goes the legend of a sorcerer so old, He drank the blood of the virgin, to be reborn Soon a tyrant will conquer so spoke the wise of the day when the sorcerer, will rise! Blood is his wine the sorcerer is cheating on time and he'll be stronger than before Cursed be the sun, the women will weep for his fun in the name of his magic so strong Part Three A thousand years had gone, Armageddon hasnt come Only the cry of a child, echoes in the dark Backwards goes time as the stars are passing by Nothing remains of this foolish man, except his fate ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I know this might contain some mistakes..
