Spell Of Iron lyrics - Tarot

Tarot - Spell Of Iron Lyrics
Tarot is a heavy metal band from Kuopio, formed in 1985. While having enjoyed a broad underground popularity in Finland, the band has never been very famous elsewhere until gaining new success in the recent years when their singer Marco Hietala joined Nightwish in 2002. Tarot was originally formed by the Hietala brothers in the early 80’s. Back then the band’s name was “Purgatory”. As Purgatory reached the point when they got the record deal, the label wanted them to change their name. Since then the band has been known as Tarot. The line-up settled in to the form of Marco Hietala (bass/vocals), Zachary Hietala (guitars), Mako H. (guitars) and Pecu Cinnari (drums). The Wings of Darkness single saw the daylight in 1986 and... more...

1. "Midwinter Nights" lyrics


[Hietala]

Screams falling out of the sky
Blackness encloses me
Strange visions flickering to die
Twisted shape of eternity
Freezing wind bites my flesh
Rips it off over the bone
Stranded in the night forever
Pain makes me scream and groan

I can no longer break the shields of my loneliness
I'm only waiting in the everlasting fortress of midwinter nights

Soul lost in anger and frustration
Darkness enters me
Ruins, decay and desolation
Are left from my world to be seen
Out in the snow with my ghosts
Howling in the woods with beasts
Blackhearted grief swells in me
Gone too far for anyone to reach

I can no longer break the shields of my loneliness
My name is forgotten, I'm only growing less

Won't you please let me in, I'll do no harm
Oh can't you see I'm in great pain
Won't you please let me in, there'll be no harm
My heart just can't bear this chain
Of midwinter nights

Screams falling out of the sky
Blackness encloses me
Strange visions flickering to die
Twisted shade of eternity


 
2. "Dancing On The Wire" lyrics


[Hietala]

You are the child of fire and I'm of ice
And you struggle to be a flyer whereas shadows are my disguise
You reach for the heights, the loneliness of majesty
In the kaleidoscope of lights you have reached your victory
So bitter so sweet

You are dancing on the wire, you laugh and I weep
You are dancing on the wire and my sorrow has grown deep

From my love you were delighted
Though it was clear that we sailed on different streams
Like the stars we are divided and I'll be lost in your dreams
So bitter so sweet

You are dancing on the wire, you hear the highest praise
You are dancing on the wire and I'm no one in so place
On the wire

You reach for the heights, the loneliness of majesty
In the kaleidoscope of lights you have reached your victory
So bitter so sweet

You are dancing on the wire, you laugh and I weep
You're dancing on the wire, you fly and I creep
You're dancing on the wire and I'm falling out of sight
You're dancing, dancing, dancing, 'till you fall amidst your flight
Like me into the night


 
3. "Back In The Fire" lyrics


[Hietala]

Black spots floating before my eye
Solar wind shouting from the sky
Free of chains, free from pains
Old poisons run in my veins

Airborne I'm speeding in flames
Dark wings growing from my heels
I make the rules for my games
Back in the fire with burning wheels

Born from the fires of the core
My home is in the red hot gore
I'm this blade and I'm the truth
I'm alive, the everlasting youth

Walls of my prison have gone
I hear the shadows whisper and warm
White heat against your black
Battles to come and I am back


 
4. "Love's Not Made For My Kind" lyrics


[Hietala]

There's been a thousand times
Thousand times I've wondered
Is it a hand of fate
That pushes me out into the cold
And the ex-friends say
That I've hidden my feelings too deep
Truth is that I've got nothing to hide anymore
I feel myself weary and old

I've had more than my share of pain
Love's not made for my kind
My heart's turning to stone
Love's not made for my kind
Better to leave me alone

I've been on the edges of unknown
I've roamed the spaces wild and free
I've always been on my own
I can't change my ways can't you see
And now the dark is rising
And my back's to the door
I think it's time to give in
My legs won't carry me no more

I've had more than my share of pain
I wonder if I am still sane
Love's not made for my kind
My heart's turning to stone
Love's not made for my kind
Better to leave me alone


 
5. "Never Forever" lyrics


[Hietala]

Ever constant change, timefilled space
Spacefilled time just hits right through your face

A moving picture, flame explodes and it dies
Is there a secret truth behind the veil of lies

Fly with the wind full of sigh
Fly away and let out your cry
Never forever

Through countless futures, a point to leave to the past
You know that pain, like love, they just never last


 
6. "Spell Of Iron" lyrics


[Hietala]

Oh iron, the taker of men
Gray glitter through the blood and rust
Your blade will fall again
Your spell will turn men into the dust

The spell of iron
Born from the heart of the earth
The spell of iron
Your death is promised by your birth
The spell of iron

Oh iron, you are a murder
You taste the life-force and eat it away
As we cross the lines of a border
We know that some of us will not see a new day

Oh iron, it is your bite
That drains our blood and gives us death
You give us the eternal night
But still your beauty takes away my breath


 
7. "De Mortui Nil Nisi Bene" lyrics


[Hietala]

[Instrumental]


 
8. "Pharao" lyrics


[Hietala]

They knew about the curse but didn't mind
Blew up my tomb, robbed gold under my sign
I have to follow them for my pride
I'll get the peace, when they are mine

They will be dead, I'll be free
There is nothing that could save them from me
I'll wait in the shadows, those they can not flee
The death is only a way to feel
The Pharao's revenge

They don't see my shade near by the door
Now it's time to take what I have come for
I'll burn their souls for shaming my sign
I'll get the peace when they are mine


 
9. "Wings Of Darkness" lyrics


[Hietala]

The skies are open, smell of a danger in the air
We ride in the northwind over the mountains without a care
Adventures calling beyond the faraway stars

The battles has been won, falling enemies ships on fire
Diving through the void, the wings are spread to take us higher
No place to call home in underworld or sky
Living on the edge, looking danger into the eye

Flying towards the stars so bright
Straight into the heart of the night
Wings of darkness carrying the spirits of us

The skies are open for atomic Vikings to roam
And when the quest is ended, Vallhalla will then be our home
No place is safe from us in underworld of sky
Living on the edge, looking danger into the eye


 
10. "Things That Crawl At Night" lyrics


[Hietala]

The night falls in the forest and the light fades away
The wind cries over the snowy plains as I wait for another day
The circles of thought don't turn
The candles cease to burn
I'm left alone the darkness that fills my heart

I hear kind of weeping, small voice but a great pain
The pool of my soul fills with tears that come in rain
There's no one to save the light
But you, who cast me into the night
There is no rescue from the state in which I am now

Just because of you I've come to know them all
I have become one of the things that crawl at night

The frost grows on your window at the touch of my icy fingertips
I come to give you a kiss to suck the warmth from your lips
And I just slip away
As the night turns into a new day
Leaving you to lie cold and still in your bed
