  • The day is over, the setting of the sun
    My wounds are many, evening has begun
    A mist is falling before my eyes
    My soul is free now to shadow forth and rise
    To tread the paths that none has seen
    The Mystic Rose, the Empyrean
    Gone forever my days of valor
    I will meet you in the sun

    [Chorus:]
    I will stay tonight in your perfect mansions
    Where the silver horses run
    I will rest my head in fields of glory once more
    In the palace of the sky
    The gods are mighty, children of the brave
    Lord Poseidon, a message on the waves
    The age is passing, the white ship rides
    A voice is calling way beyond the skies
    Tell her that you saw me stand (proud)
    And you look into my eyes, (no fear was waiting)
    Tell her that her name was on my lips when I died
    I will meet her in the sun

    [Chorus]
    Death makes us innocent, all truths remain
    The white ship is summoning, ride the winds of the sky!!!

    [Chorus]
    We rise above the world and we soar above the waves
    With the last of all my breath I slew the best of seven wraiths
    Fortune is now waiting like a vulture in the sky
    Tears of blood are falling as the god of winter dies
    And now we ride... silver horses of night
    (Remember)... I'll meet you again in the sun
    On holy, holy ground... We ride..
