  • How do you read a madman's mind?
    Teach me the art of war
    For I shall bring more than you bargained for

    Give me an ultimatum
    That I could not dream of
    Spills of a crying nation
    Upon my soul

    For I have not a mortal soul
    That you already know
    Look at my eyes
    There's no surprise

    Ocean is black, the devil's track
    Looking beyond, beneath the sea
    Eye of the storm is here again
    Been there before you were ever born
    Beyond the dark, I feel the pain
    It's hidden but I can't explain
    A cross to bear
    A heavy faith
    My sorrow whispers
    Time again

    I hear you calling my name
    Come to claim my life again
    Pray for me, I'm almost there
    The pain almost too much to bear

    I try to find my way back home
    To feel the same again
    The voice of nothing listened far too long

    Little by little, eat away
    I think I've lost my mind
    Too late to change now
    What I left behind

    Hear me, listen to my call
    I am ready to fall
    Lord, hear me now, let me go

    Ocean is black, the devil's track
    Looking beyond, beneath the sea
    Eye of the storm is here again
    Been there before you were ever born

    Beyond the dark, I feel the pain
    It's hidden but I can't explain
    A cross to bear
    A heavy faith
    My sorrow whispers
    Time again Writer/s: Janick Gers, Steve Harris
