Keeper Of The Seven Keys - The Legacy

Po průměrném Rabbitovi, který měl víceméně uklidnit kritické názory v táboře fanošků, se další Keeper očekával spíše s obavami. Ovšem po prvním poslechu se ukazuje, že kritika není na místě. Třetí Keeper zní jako každé jejich album opět odlišně. Skupina sází na jisté experimentování, a kombinace s klasickým "happy" stylem se jí vyplácí. Skladatelsky vévodí opět Andi, ale i Sascha, který překvapuje čím dál více. Celou desku podle mě kazí pouze tři věci - trapná halekačka "Mrs. God", vycpávková "My Life For One More Day" a některé do uší bijící pasáže v "King For A 1000 Years". I přes tato negativa je album velmi dobré. Rozhodně žádné pokračování Keepera se nekoná, což ovšem není vůbec na škodu.

Keeper Of The Seven Keys - The Legacy
KING FOR A 1000 YEARS
(M:Helloween / L:Deris)

[Lector (in howling wind)]
Forgotten in his reich of shadows
Banned forever
One thought
The lord of the evil
Was given name and place of the seventh see
Shelter of the seventh key
Who was betraitous (the traitous) ?
I guess You know
There would be more than one name to name
Now he whose name is many searches for the one
The one strong enough to survive
As his terrestial hand
Enticement and promise will crown the king
A puppet on a string
For a thousand years
So they sing

Wouldn't it be nice to plunder with your eyes
Whatever there's for you to see
Is yours to be
Let me be there
Just tell me You don't care
Just say You came here after knife (?)
However high the price
I know your secrets
I know it all

I know your secrets
I see them hidden with our light
I'm your sickness
Hiding You right behind your lies
Don't try to kill me
I cannot die I guess You know
You and I will be
Heaven above and hell below

Brother [harsh voice]
Release me [women's choir]
Father [harsh voice]
Won't see me [women's choir]
Brother [harsh voice]
Believe me, perceive me [women's choir]

[Andi (1)]
Time will be a turning wheel
Whichever we're torn (?)
Time will be a toy
Time we will enjoy
Say You want to live forever
Mindless one day
Say You will obey
And I

[Band as choir (1)]
I will show
I will show
I will show no light of dawn(?)
And I will show
I will show
I will show no fright at all(?)

Wouldn't it be nice to ride until you sigh
Whatever there's attracting You
We'll give this turn to you [harsh voice]
Let me be there
Just say You want to share
The power noone will withstand
Just be my human hand

I know your secrets
I know it all

[Band as choir (1)]

[Solo 1]

[Women's choir (1)]
Don't release us now he sees us
No illusions, executions
The damnation, the annihilation
The non-stopping celebration
Don't release us now he sees us
No illusions,

Executions !

[Andi & harsh voice (1)]
We're a king for a thousand years
We are a king of million tears
We're the ones who bring desire by the greed and fears
We're a king of fallen men
We're a king ... of the damn
Thru the hoping to obsession
We're the king
We're the king for a thousand years

Angels of fire
Ain't enough darkness fear and hate
Wake up my preachers
Stand up You're greater (of the sate?)
Noone can kill us
We cannot die I guess one knows
Mankind is sleeping
My victim You'll be buried so close

I know your secrets
I know it all

[Solo 2]

Goodbye sorrows [Men's choir]
Follow me You have to turn the key
Release me [Mixed choir]
Believe me [Mixed choir]
Goodbye sorrows [Men's choir]
?
Goodbye sorrows [Men's choir]
Follow me You have to turn the key
Conceive me [Mixed choir]

[Andi (1)]

[Band as choir (1)]

[Andi & harsh voice (1)]
We're a king for a thousand years


INVISIBLE MAN
(Gerstner)

I am the one who wants to show
You a secret of your cheating world
Wherever I will go - No one can see me
'Cause I'm the invisible man

I'm a creature with one goal
Rise up to heaven when the time has come
I have no body but a soul
Gods law is written on my way, forever

Time by time I think it's over
The malediction I have got
When the world was young
I've been captured in the name of god
To save people, but who cares?
Since a thousand years
Until the holy land will come

Here I am the invisible man
A lost fallen angel helping mankind where I can
My memories are there to save your world
For you I'm just the invisible man

Solo: Both

There's the destiny you don't know
I'm a guardian angel and whatever you'll go
You fight through your life not alone
You can't hear me, nor see me
But trust the holy flow

Solo: Sascha

Here I am the invisible man
A lost fallen angel helping mankind where I can
My memories are there to save your world
For you i'm just the invisible man


BORN ON JUDGEMENT DAY
(Weikath)

My mother died close to me
And while I lie sobbin' here
This world's going down with fear
Armies of minions is all I see
Creatures in anguish no place to flee
Living their nightmares the fall from grace
And so I'm standing here

I was born on judgment day
And I have no words to say
Don't know good or bad
Kinda feel so sad
But still, I sing this song for you

There's no one beside me
I'm shuddering wearily
Utterly destitute and all
Nobility has let mankind
Turned into vultures, bewildered eyes
Shoved to the abyss, a twisting whirl
Under the blood red sky

I was born on judgment day
And I have no words to say
Don't know good or bad
Kinda feel so sad
But still, I sing this song for you

Solo: Both/Weikath/Loebl/Grosskopf/Gerstner/Both

I was born on judgment day
And I have no words to say
Don't know good or bad
Kinda feel so sad
But still, I sing this song for you


PLEASURE DRONE
(Gerstner)

There's an abyss in your life
'Cause a good love's gone bad
You've lost someone for now and forever
She was the best you've ever had
Just let me go it's a hopeless endeavor
Don't stick your head in the sand
Don't you cry so much, it doesn't help
Not with her picture in your hand

Just when you lose your smiling face
Gonna bring you to a special place, 'cause I'm a

Drone, pleasure drone
And I wipe your tears away
Drone, pleasure drone
I'm gonna make you a perfect day

I'm made for sensing your mood
No reason for despair
Can you hear mechanical noises
When I buzz thru the air
To get you up I'll hand you presents
From my telescopic arm
No matter they're no hands
But my claws won't do no harm

And wherever there's bad vibes
I will detect them with laser eyes, cause I'm a

Drone, pleasure drone
And I wipe your tears away
Drone, pleasure drone
I'm gonna make you a perfect day

Solo: Gerstner/Weikath/Both

Drone, pleasure drone
And I wipe your tears away
Drone, pleasure drone
I'm gonna make you a perfect day
Drone, pleasure drone


MRS. GOD
(Deris)

Mrs. God, am I right
That's your real address
This time, it's you
Ready to confess
Free the masculine world
Cancel their humility

Mrs God, can it be
Can You be the light
One dressed to kill

Walk on, how you bite
This will state and explain
Why men are sometimes stumbling

Mrs God, are You there
Laughing at us is not fair
Mrs God can You see
All the shit You've done to me

Mrs. God, may I say
It's nothing of my kind
We're so deceived
You'd better left us blind

Mrs God, we are cool
Take it with the smile
But don't be cruel
That's heavy to defy
In some hundred years
God has always had the tears


SILENT RAIN
(Gerstner/Deris)

He is God and he is light
He means everything in life
To her awaking mind
He's the one of two she loves
He's the one of two she snogs and hugs
In blind faith

But in the recent dead of nights
There was wonder, there was fright
Daddy's coming for a secret playing
Secret playing

Silent giants
Silent rain
Silence cover shame
Lying colours
Lurking bane
Under the silent rain

Daddy told her not to speak
Not to wail and not to weep
A promise she won't keep
Saw her mother at the door
Starting craven to the core
She won't care no more

So in the endless coming years
There was sorrow, there was fears
Daddy's coming for a secret playing
Secret playing

Silent giants
Silent rain
Silence cover shame
Lying colours
Lurking bane
Under the silent rain

Solo: Gerstner/Weikath/Both

Silent giants
Silent rain
Silence cover shame
Lying colours
Lurking bane
Under the silent rain


OCCASION AVENUE
(Deris)

What you sight you have seen
Where you go already been
The again you go through
Occasion Avenue

Sister, the day you sell your skin
(The gold of night is the gold of the blind)
Sister, that day your soul gives in
(You'll never find what you left behind)
Oh, oh, no matter what they do
Oh, oh, you got to go straight through
Occasion Avenue

Brother, dare not look left or right
(Coaxing your eyes, poisoning your mind)
Brother, don't stop or you must fight
(No indulgence or its death you find)
Oh, oh, you may not leave with doubt
Oh, oh, you may no take it to
Occasion Avenue

Follow your heart - Follow your truth
Follow the path that shines for you
On Occasion Avenue
How far you go - How good you do
Uncovers the prize or rebears you
To Occasion Avenue

Domini, domini - Occasion Avenue - Domini Sancti
Satani, satani - Occasion Avenue - Satani mundi

Will there be tomorrow - Will there be the stars
Will there be a future - time beats in our hearts
Or will there be the fire - branding us his mark

I pray for all us people
Trying to solve the riddle
I don't know where we're going
I don't know if we're being true
On Occasion Avenue

Solo: Gerstner

Precious is your tasking
For a little bit of faking
For a tiny slight deception
For some insincere affection
(TV: …commited suicide in his
New York Penthouse.
He leaves no dependant
So stay tuned for the latest news of
"where do all the millions go").

Much will be your power
By the essence of a flower
By seducement and cold rapture
By abusing mother nature
(TV: …murdered close to
Old Berlin's Checkpoint Charlie.
Police assumes just one more execution
By competing drug-cartels).

Great will be your status
When you know how to lick anus
When you lie and swindle ruthless
And your biggest hero's Judas
(TV: …sentenced to 16 years for
Marriage imposture and order
Of murder to his current wife whose
Life assurance's worth one million pounds.)

Will there be tomorrow - Will there be the stars
Will there be a future - Time beats in our hearts
Will there still be laughter - Will there be relief
Will there be religion - Will there be belief
Will you see your people - From your former lifes
Will you know them this time - Will you win the prize
Will there be an ending - Will there be a start
Or will there be the fire - Branding you this mark

I pray for all us people - Trying to solve the riddle
I don't know where we're going
I don't know if we're being true - On Occasion Avenue

Mother, I dreamt of my last life
(You'll never find what you left behind)
Mother, I killed you with my knife
(No indulgence or its death you find)

Oh, oh, we got to make it through - Occasion Avenue

Follow your heart - Follow your truth
Follow the path that shines for you
On Occasion Avenue
How far you go - How good you do
Uncovers the prize or rebears you
To Occasion Avenue

Domini, domini - Occasion Avenue - Domini Sancti
Satani, satani - Occasion Avenue - Satani mundi

LIGHT THE UNIVERSE
(Deris)

In a house up the hill
Lays a boy, he's sleeping still
And the time's creeping by
Till the world prepares to die
Then again out of dust
Will arise what ended last
And the boy will awake
Give his dream a little brake

And the story now goes on and on and on
As the old has died the new arises
And a child will

Light the Universe
Light the Universe
We got blind, we can't read the signs
Light the Universe
Light the Universe
We don't find what's hidden in our mind

Under sand in sea
Covered with eternity
Beats a heart with no fame
Quietly whispering my name
When my time has run out
I will hear it very loud
Telling tales I once knew
But forgot by losing you

And the story now goes on and on and on
As the old has died the new arises
And a boy will

Light the Universe
Light the Universe
We got blind, we can't read the signs
Light the Universe
Light the Universe
We don't find what's hidden in our mind

Solo: Gerstner


DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE FIGHTING FOR?
(Weikath)

Day by day you work off your claws
The line of fate in them
My not pay your loans
You got to keep goin' and goin' on
Strive day by day

Do you know, uh, do you know, do

Do you know what you're fighting for
The seed is sown
But we don't know the score
They will rule us, this breed of futility
You won't make an escape
'Cause we will still be alive

Disenchantment, alienation
A slog to feed future estranged generations
And, retired, will you get rewarded
Your brave restraint?

Do you know, uh, do you know, do

Do you know what you're fighting for
The seed is sown
But we don't know the score
They will rule us, this breed of futility
You won't make an escape
'Cause we will still be alive

Do you know what you're fighting for
The seed is sown
But we don't know the score
They will rule us, this breed of futility
You won't make an escape
'Cause we will still be alive

Uh, will they need you
Will they pay you

Solo: Löble/Weikath/Gerstner


COME ALIVE
(Deris)

It don't get better if you're locked behind your door
It don't get better if you're hiding more and more
It may get better if you fight
It may get better if you'd wear a mask and scream
On Halloween

Come alive - Come alive
Rise and see - Rise and be for me
Come alive - Come alive
From the blue - Make it true for You
Come alive

It don't get better if you're acting fro a while
It don't get better if you drown in self denial
It don't get better without pain
It don't get better if you turn around and flee
To ecstasy

Come alive - Come alive
Rise and see - Rise and be for me
Come alive - Come alive
From the blue - Make it true for You
Come alive

Solo: Gerstner


SHADE IN THE SHADOW
(Deris)

You're reaching out in the dead of night
Searching for my hand
Your know I'm there in the waste of shadows
I'm your pain and friend

I hear your silent cries
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
I know your secret lies
I'm the Shade in the Shadow

I ban the light and I leave you blind
If you try your eyes
I am enemy or a trusty fellow
In yuor wailing mind

I hear your silent cries
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
I know your secret lies
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
I hide behind your shame
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
Crying out loud your name
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
The Shade in the Shadows of you

There I cry for you - In the shadows
As I always do - in the shadows
You may oust me there - in the shadows
But I'm always there - in the shadows
In the shadows

I hear your silent cries
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
I know your secret lies
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
I hide behind your shame
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
Crying out loud your name
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
The Shade in the Shadows of you

There I cry for you
In the shadows
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
As I always do
In the shadows
I'm the Shade in the Shadow
The Shade in the Shadow of you


GET IT UP!
(Weikath)

A little thing you sure will know
Why you came here tonight
And not to those other places
I could imagine there's PCs and DVDs
And TV shows
And sex in cars what else you like
Now right here is the place I got to be
Tomorrow I'll be far away
If you got time and nothing else to do now
Together we can change the world

Let's get it up
Rock's here to stay
With the best years of our lives we paid our share
Yeah, yeah
Now tell me what is in our way
To push this right in the face everyday

We spread it further on the town
Now, what'd ya know we're good
To incite a few more disciples
No time to waste makin' haste we're movin' on
Where we'll suspend another night

Do I see grinning faces all round here?
…and is this due to my words
Come treat me nice, y' know, I wasn't raised here
But I mean everything I say

Let's get it up
Rock's here to stay
With the best years of our lives we paid our share
Yeah, yeah
Now tell me what is in our way
To push this right in the face everyday

Solos: Weikath


MY LIFE FOR ONE MORE DAY
(M / L:Grosskopf - Deris)

Listen my teachers
Listen my preachers
Let the world know he broke out
Mankind is saved just to see
What was it
Heaven shall bleed

Satan has taken
...
One of the seven of faith
Out of the sea
He has buried it under the mountain of greed

Stone by stone
You must carry us
stone by stone
On and on
Untill the sign of life in light shows it's too late
Too late

There is a chance for everyone
Takes time but can be done
Fight the darkness
Don't be afraid my friends

The last key you have to find
And so we'll save mankind
Keep on trying
When I give away
My life for one more day
My life for one more day
My life for our world
You must find the way
My life for one more day

You who will find it
You who will bind it
Throw it back into the sea
Will be successor and follower of (?) fight

Wrath come with treason
For just one reason
Wrath come with envy and lies
Too many people will always belive
In the servant of light


REVOLUTION
(M / L:Grosskopf)

Only a few steps ahead
You'll see chances You can't ignore
Only a few days ago
Life seemed useless and sad
Now You can see what it's like
When You know what You're fighting for
Now You can see what it's worth
To believe in your faith

Revolution, revolution
Tear it once apart
For a brand new start
Revolution, revolution
Let me guess what's in your mind
And lies in your heart

Now You can see things much clearer
As long as You understand
How You can use your conviction
And build something new
Follow your visions
Keep being suspicious and curious
Never accept an excuse
And learn how to say "no"

Revolution, revolution
Tear it once apart
For a brand new start
Revolution, revolution
Let me guess what's in your mind
And lies in your heart

Solo:

In the midnight hour
Making future plans
Selfless with the tragedy in your eyes
Feel the mighty hunger
Deep inside your soul
Keeps You fighting for justice
And for the truth

Revolution, revolution
Tear it once apart
For a brand new start
Revolution, revolution
Let me guess what's in your mind
And lies in your heart
