Thousands of rivers have frozen inside this old dragon on earth
As the lazy poison has settled in these dead streams
That once were raging loud
Darkness is spreading its cloak over the ancient labyrinth
Blinding the dragon’s eyes lit by perpetual fires
A tunnel leads down and deeper into the abyss
Is the darkness an exile?
Or the gate to another hell?
As the black embrace surrounds
The eyes that can’t unveil
They can’t see that there is no tomorrow...
As the lights merge into the shadows
Deep in the heart of darkness shines a bright mirror in air
Shooting myriads of arrows from its surface to the dark
That surrounds the old blind eyes
Then from the core an arrow came racing ahead
Piercing the dragon’s eyes with a scorching light
The mirror shone bright and tall before his eyes
He sees a vision he’s known
From the old infinite past
Spirals of endless fear
Drawing in his immortal soul
He can’t see that there’s no tomorrow...
And the dragon sinks into the void
Inside the blazing fire rages
It saw the darkness through the ages
And remained always unvanquished
Now the flames burn higher and higher
And the soul regains immortality
Thousands of rivers have molten from the blazing fire within
And the lazy poison is now released from its streams
And the dragon bids farewell
To the sleep in tomorrow’s bed in a sheet of oblivion
And rode the long spirals of unending fears
And the dragon rose from the coils of the abyss
In the bright skies above
Are inscribed in eternal light
Words for the warrior’s eyes
They say, “ The moment is now and you’ll see
That there is no tomorrow”
He can see that there is no tomorrow....
