Serpents In Paradise

Avantasia


[Gabriel]
Reading the madness
They took her away
Under the cross
Bailiff and bishop and monk
Malleus Maleficarum, the law

Prayed for salvation
I fought for her soul
Scared by the horned
The devil was creeping around
Until she died in the flames
As he saw

Father forgive me
For I've hardly seen
The human deep within
Just an intention
So holy and clear
Paving the way to madness for us

Serpents on the way to paradise
Dying for love
Fighting for ages
Serpents on the way to paradise
Raging with anger
And pain for the cross

[Jakob, the Dominican monk]
Oh yeah
Father forgive me
For what I have done
For I betrayed the one
That I loved like a son
Demons and spells are they reality?

The pest and the schism
The power of the Moor
We've got to fight
Keep our people afraid
Keep them away from
What they shall not see

I see a menace to our paradise
In these evil times
Heaven is burning
People are yearning
For a new doctrine, they are

[Gabriel]
Serpents on the way to paradise

[Jakob]
Don't know they'll end
In final damnation

[Gabriel]
Serpents on the way to paradise

[Jakob]
Raging with anger and
Pain against the cross

[Gabriel]
Lord if I'm an unbeliever
What do I believe?
Can you tell me lord
What you had done
If you where me?
I have stared into the eyes
Of innocence and fear

I saw Anna in the tower
In a lake of tears
Something strange is going on and
Still I don't know why
I have stared into the secrets
They still try to hide

Vandroiy can you tell me
What you know about it all?
Vandroiy can you help me
To leave this prison hall?
Vandroiy can you help me
Free Anna from the chain?
Vandroiy can you help me
To become a little sane?

[Gabriel]
Serpents on the way to paradise
Dying for love
Fighting for ages
Serpents on the way to paradise
Raging with anger and pain
Against the cross
