Otherland Lyrics

by Blind Guardian

They rule the land, they're in command
They hold all strings in hand

They are invisible
Out of sight they've designed
A secret place to play their games
A world they're in control

Divine law, divine law
And beware, now mind your steps
We are uninvited guests
They may find and catch us, don't forget

Do what I say and now connect
Don't even ask until we're out of it
Everything's at highest stake

Come, take a look we are in
Take a breath but don't forget
Isn't real, isn't true?
An illusion nothing more

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
(Is your key to the otherland)

You're part of the game
You're cursed, you're damned
(By now you understand)

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
(You're welcome to the otherland)

You' re part of the game
You're cursed, you're damned
(By now you understand)

We get closer, there's no better way
Lullaby lane our fate is on its way
The inner district is the place you need to know
It's overwhelming so let's rest here for a while

Someone else appears silently
Watch me when I fall down
Everything seems real suddenly
A perfect simulation

Come take a look, breathe it in
Artificial wonderlands
We are wandering around
Things shall vanish, they won't last

Now I know you understand
This world is not true
Nothing is real, nothing at all
It's bits and pieces we walk through

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
(Is your key to the otherland)

You're part of the game
You're cursed, you're damned
(By now you understand)

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
(You've reached the promised land)

You're part of the game
You're cursed, you're damned
(Welcome to the otherland)

Wait, I can feel things are not right
Do not breathe, don't look behind
There's someone else, the observer

A trick of light, a fading line
The entrance's gone, we can't get out of it
We are slightly losing ground

Quick, it is time we shall go
We better leave and don't come back
No way to run, nowhere to hide
I fear we're walking aimlessly

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
(Is your key to the otherland)

You're part of the game
You're cursed, you're damned
(By now you understand)

You're part of the game
You're slave to the grind oblivion
(Welcome to the otherland)

You're part of the game
You're cursed, you're damned
(You've reached the promised land)

You've crossed the line
You've reached the end
You've crossed the line
You've reached the end
