Letra Dance of the Seven Veils

Part 1: Faithless

And old man came here telling tales
Of days gone by and seven veils
A sanctuary for all the pedlars of the lie
But one by one the veils fall
Through the subtlety of time recall
The words they longed to kill
Would not be silent be still

You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitors Gate
It's just my view but you know what I say is true

It was the month of the strawberry moon
The smell of apples and summer's bloom
Ten thousand horses could not drag you centre stage
To weary sailors the sirens sing
You hinding in the stage's wings
Forever clawing at your chains and your white feathers

You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitors Gate
And to the stars our words will rise
Forever bound and sealed

You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitors Gate
Each act and motion locked away
Will be known in the end

You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitors Gate
At last the veils have fallen down
They squirm like vipers on the ground
In time the power of passion's lust
Slips through your fingers and turns to dust

Naked now you too were deceived
And now you must stare into the eyes of the Gorgon

Here within the time we spent upon the mortal coil
Not knowing what it all meant
Our lives of pain and toil
Are those still standing tall beyond the China wall

Part II: All Over Now

From the first drop of blood spilt
To the last breath of man
Betrayal by the hand that leads the innocent hand
A friend they tought was a friend to fight
From William Wallace to Jesus Christ

It hurts when you say
You never knew me anyway
But it's all over now
It's so hard when you say
You never knew me anyway
But it's all over now

You drank from the poison cup
Not knowing it was a trap
It's strange but so true
The ones who love you will run you through
With swords and knives then run for their lives

Like the rose as petals fall
As the dance of the veils calls
But it's all over now
But it's all over now

Like a gypsy it seeks
To serenade you while you sleep
But is cutting out your heart
Leaving scars that run so deep
Like a moth to a flame
That just keeps burning through your life
But the lure of those sweet
Words of love keep calling

It hurts when you say
I never knew you anyway
But it's all over now
And it hurts when you say
I never knew you anyway
But it's all over now
And it hurts when you say
I never loved you anyway
But it's all over now
And it hurts when you say
I never knew you anyway
But it's all over now

We set sail on waters new
Our eyes set on a new world
It's time to wave goodbye
To the lives I touched and left behind
But through this melody and rhyme
I'll find some comfort here
